Full Moon In Aquarius

Full Moon In Aquarius

As we step into the first day of August, we welcome the full moon in Aquarius, a celestial event that promises to illuminate our understanding of ourselves and our place within the collective.

This full moon in the sign of the water bearer, Aquarius is known for its forward-thinking, inventiveness, and idealistic outlook. Under the light of this full moon, we may find ourselves inspired with new ideas for the betterment of our communities and the world at large. 

Opposite the sun in Leo, brings a counterbalance to the Aquarian energy. Leo is a sign of individuality, self-expression, and creativity. The sun, the ruler of Leo, is at home here, its influence encourages us to shine, and express ourselves boldly. This is a time of personal power, of recognizing our unique gifts and our ability to inspire others with our radiant self-expression.

Sharing the sky in the sign of Leo-  Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and values, is currently retrograde. Venus retrograde urges us to re-evaluate our relationships, our values, and the things that bring us pleasure. While occuring duing Leo season this period adds additional focus on the self, and asks how we approach self-expression and creativity. Are we being true to ourselves? Are we living in alignment with our true values, or have we compromised our individuality for the sake of fitting in?

The recent Nodal Shift further adds to the narrative of our cosmic journey. The North Node has moved into pioneering Aries, and the South Node into harmonious Libra. This shift forms an intriguing backdrop to the dynamics of the transits occuring during this full moon.

With the North Node now freshly in Aries, it aligns beautifully with the Leo Sun's emphasis on individuality and the courage required to shine as our true selves. We're collectively being urged towards pioneering, taking inspired action, and asserting one's identity with courage and conviction. We're invited to be bold and take the lead in our lives. Simultaneously, the Aquarian full moon's focus on humanitarian ideals, revolutionary ideas, and collective goals offers a balance to prevent us from becoming overly self-centered or egotistical.

This is contrasted by the south Node in Libra (ruler of our retrograde venus), which suggests a release from the past where we may have over-emphasized harmony, cooperation, and partnerships at the cost of losing our personal identity. This isn't a call to abandon relationships or harmony, but rather it encourages us to balance these aspects with our own needs and individual self-expression.

As Venus retrogrades in Leo during this full moon in Aquarius, we are encouraged to re-align our personal values with the needs of the collective. This can be a time of profound revelation, as we come to understand that our unique gifts and self-expression can contribute significantly to the collective good. Balancing our individual needs and self-expression with our role in the broader community. It's a time to shine your light, not just for self-glorification, but for the betterment of the collective. When you live in allignment with your truest self you inspire and empower others to do the same. Be bold, be courageous, and most importantly, be true to yourself. Your individuality is not just about you; it's a gift to the world.
