» This Full Moon on 8/15 is in Aquarius «
This has been a pretty special lunar season for me. It’s Leo season, and I just celebrated my 27th trip around the sun. This full moon is also in my moon sign, Aquarius, so it’s been an exciting time for me. With this full moon we will explore how Leo and Aquarius integrate and how we can learn from this conjunction of signs. Full moons are generally a time of illumination but they also tend to bring out the emotional, instinctual—you might even say, irrational—side of our nature. Although Aquarius can be quite intuitive in its own way, it tends to favor the head rather than the heart. As a result, even full moons in this fixed air sign can have an emotionally detached kind of vibe.
So what does this mean for you and me?
Last full moon we looked at Leos and how they can be very charismatic, outgoing, and loyal people and this full moon we will look at Aquarius, which tends to focus on the community. The summer generally brings friends and community into our lives. Now that summer is dying down its a good time to look at theses friendships and the community around you and reevaluate how they are serving you. Maybe you’re having a difficult time with a friend or a coworker or you’re having trouble feeling accepted by the people around you. How can we be more charismatic towards them? Is this my time to be more outgoing? This is a great time to look at the community that you have built around and and take time to really appreciate it. Let’s also look at how there may be some struggle between Leo and Aquarius. Leos on the negative side tend to be overbearing. If you have a relationship that could be exhausting you, how you can reframe the situation to mend and move forward in your friendship? We’re ever changing beings and our relationship with our community around us waxes and wanes. It’s time to cut our losses and move forward with those who provide a supportive community.
Community is a blessing
