Full Blue Moon in Aquarius Horoscopes

Aug 19, 2021

The Full Moon in Aquarius is on Sunday, August 22 at 7:01 AM CT. 

It is the second Full Moon we have had in this sign and is considered to be a Blue Moon. 

Blue Moons occur when there is a Full Moon that disrupts the normal pattern of the Moon. It’s most noticeable when there are two Full Moons that occur in the same month. We can also have four Full Moons that occur during an astronomical season (the period between an equinox and a solstice, or vice versa). The third of those four Full Moons will be a Blue Moon. 

Another way of looking at this would be that these two Full Moons will be defining points of Leo Season. The Moon is Full when it is opposite to the Sun. This normally occurs once during a solar season. But this Leo Season it will happen twice. From my perspective, what makes this unique is that it creates two Full Moons that occur within the same sign: Aquarius. 

Full Moons bring cycles to completion and provide space for us to emotionally and physically release something that we are done with. With two Full Moons happening in the same sign we get two opportunities to wrap something up. It also means we have two potential opportunities to reap the rewards from the intentions we set at the New Moon in Aquarius on February 11, 2021.

The last Full Moon in Aquarius occurred on Friday, July 23 at 9:36 PM CT. You might want to go back and read the message from a month ago to see all that has progressed. What we started to realize then is now made clear, but that doesn’t mean that we know what steps to take. 

With the Sun and Moon both at the critical 29th degree, there is a sense of urgency and intensity to our emotions. We’re looking to leaders for guidance, but they seem to be of two (or more) opinions about the right way to move forward. This is particularly true as it relates to institutions of education, philosophy, international relations, and neighborhoods. Once again, we are put into a position of being our own leaders and making decisions about what the rules should be. 

Uranus stations retrograde on August 19, just a couple of days before this Full Moon occurs. It will remain retrograde until January 18, 2022. Uranus is retrograde for roughly six months every year. This time it is happening at 14° Taurus, so if you have placements at or near 14° Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius, or Leo, this Full Moon could have an element of change or surprise. Others will feel Uranus retrograde as it aligns more with global events, which could involve financial or environmental events. 

This Full Moon occurs just before the Sun enters Virgo. Virgo season brings our attention to details. The details on the leaf of a houseplant. The subtle flavor in a cookie and the single ingredient that makes the difference. The deeper meaning in what someone says. Virgo season invites us into service, which is defined as helping or doing work for someone. Where we feel compelled to serve, we must also be aware of overstepping into martyrdom. A martyr chooses to sacrifice their life and face great pain and distress in order to hold up a belief. Sometimes we have expectations that we have inherited about how we are meant to put our own wellbeing after others, and while this can be a noble idea it can also get in the way of accessing the care we need. This Virgo season, be aware of where you are serving from a heart-centered place and where you are serving others from a belief about what you “should” do. 

Mars and Mercury are already in Virgo at this lunation, inviting us to notice and take action on details related to health. With Mercury opposite to Neptune the patterns that arise might confuse us. Taking these steps in response to this muddle information might have some feeling like they are a victim. The level of hot takes that are going to happen under this Full Moon is too much. Sign out of Twitter now.

Conversations and ideas are flowing in our relationships about home, work and how to move forward. We might also feel like it’s time to escape some commitments and reduce the scope of our vision. 

Virgo season will invite us into adaptation, but we might not be clear on where our commitments need to be until September 6 when we have the New Moon in Virgo.

ARIES 

Taking care of all of the little things in your life is holding your attention right now and there is a lot to keep straight. That doesn’t mean there aren’t others who need to hear from you at this Full Blue Moon though. You’ve been learning about and working on something behind the scenes, and it feels like it is time to share the news with your audience. Some of the details might need to be worked out—but there’s something hopeful you feel that you can share. That seems more important than getting all of the answers in place. It might take you until next year to really get the ball rolling. Create space for your vision to evolve while also letting your audience in on what’s happening behind the curtain.

TAURUS 

This Full Blue Moon might put some pressure on you to take a stand with your family or supervisor. Parenting decisions or decisions about parents might be especially important. You’re trying to be caring and mindful of everyone’s needs while also modeling responsible decision making. The outcome might not be what you hoped for but making decisions that align with your own values is so important to you. There is something that you have created that you feel compelled to protect and this is also guiding your decision making process. What direction to take your work and responsibilities in might also be a topic of discussion with the people who are part of your daily life and home environment. Your preferences might surprise people, but remember that it’s okay to change your mind Taurus.

GEMINI 

You’re learning something critical right now and it might impact your life in more ways than one. Maybe you’ve been waiting for this information since the last Full Moon on July 23, but there could be people in a position of power over you who aren’t letting you completely in on the details. You might feel confused about the role you play in using this information to make a decision. All you know is that a pattern is emerging and it’s keeping your focus on your home and health. Normally curious and interested in exploring, you might find yourself living the life of a hermit more and more these days. It feels like there’s a big transformation happening behind the scenes, and taking some time away from other people supports that. You can also be creative in your space and if you were going to let anyone in it would be someone who is as excited about something you love as you are. Those people might feel hard to find or access right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun on your own.

CANCER 

You feel responsible for many things you don’t share with others, and the emotional toll this has taken since July 23 is forcing you to make some decisions about your work, money and investments. Setting boundaries is a pathway to self-love and self-respect. With Venus now in your 4th house of home and family, you might feel like there’s nowhere you would rather be than in your cozy bed with what you love most. There’s a group of people who are still excited to hear from you and you’re trying to figure out how to meet their needs while simultaneously taking care of your own. What if you aren’t responsible for all of the things you feel you are responsible for Cancer? What if you aren’t responsible for everyone else? There’s a balance you need to strike right now between pulling back to give yourself space and providing care to the people who need it. Using your own voice and creations to show others how to strike this balance in their own life is what you are here to do.

LEO 

Someone has a lot of feelings and there is no ignoring it at this Full Blue Moon in Aquarius. There’s been changes to the foundation of your life that make this conversation feel critical right now. You’re thinking about your personal values and sharing your motivations with your audience to let them know what to expect in the future. While you’re trying to take responsibility for how you might impact others, you can’t help but feel a little victimized by the whole situation. You’re confused, but you might not feel like you can say that. You might try to play it off like you know what the answers are. You don’t have to be the rock, Leo. You can shake, you can change. Don’t expect yourself to be perfect. No one is.

VIRGO 

Since July 23, you have been working hard with lots of daily responsibilities. You’ve been leading lots of behind the scenes efforts and other people might not be aware of the magnitude of what you’re dealing with. You want to be of service, it’s in your nature, but sometimes you also want to cut free and get the credit you deserve. At this Full Blue Moon in Aquarius, you’re talking about what you want and you are ready to go after it. You’re getting clarity on what you value not only for yourself but in your relationships. Cut away the people who have made you feel small and make a decision to value and care for yourself. While you’re not necessarily one to toot your own horn, you are moving into your own season for the next month and you don’t always have to be so humble. How can you value yourself? How can you hold space for yourself? How can you choose yourself right now?

LIBRA 

Over the next month you might find yourself between doing it all on your own and finding someone to help you take care of the details. Something that you’ve created is expanding your responsibilities on a day-to-day basis, and there is a lot to manage between this focus and your home life. Your relationships and home might be more of a focus at this Full Blue Moon in Aquarius, and there might be a wounded person who needs some tending. You’re working out the details to take care of them but might not be clearly communicating the steps that you are taking. You might have many thoughts and ideas on what and who to invest in, and it might seem like there is no right way to do things. Truth be told, there are no right ways, only ways. Commit to yourself and the most important relationships in your life and make sure you are holding space for those needs. The money, value and connections will come when they will.

SCORPIO 

This Full Blue Moon could have you at home and deeply sensitive to everyone’s feelings. There seems to be a lot of that. You might feel responsible to hold space for everyone to talk about their fears, especially those related to education, travel, work, and siblings. It is important to hold space for others, and you can be quite good at it Scorpio. But maybe there’s someone powerful who always wants you to do this, and at this Full Moon you’re done with being that person. At this Full Moon you need your own space. You don’t necessarily want to let everyone in on the details of what is happening, but there might be one particular person you’re willing to lean on through this time. Maybe tomorrow you’ll let everyone know. Maybe next week. How about after Labor Day? It’s okay to change plans and change again. It’s okay to let an idea go.

SAGITTARIUS 

Since July 16, 2021, you have been letting go of past experiences where people might have made you feel small. At this Full Blue Moon in Aquarius, you have a prime opportunity to let go of those inner bullies and speak up for your own well-being. There are people who are amazing to connect with and they’re willing to hold space for you, so you do not need to focus on the people who would like to stand in your way. You’re like a kid on the playground, proudly declaring what makes you weird and wonderful, and attracting the bold and creative kids who want to create a life like you do. You’re noticing where differences between people can be beautiful and where differences between people can keep you small and contained. You were never meant to be contained, Sagittarius. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

CAPRICORN 

It’s been a whirlwind of decisions about what you value since the last Full Moon in Aquarius on July 23. You might call it a crash course in self-love and self-worth. You are waiting for the work to be worth it, and it might not be until October when it all moves ahead. It’s okay to take your time. You do value a job well done—and you know that it can be a journey to get there. While you’re waiting though, let’s talk about Venus in your 10th house of being witnessed. How can you hold space for other people to see you? You’ve had to validate and love yourself and that is important—but maybe at this Full Blue Moon you can let yourself be loved. Give yourself the space to be desired. There’s a playful part of you that wants to come out before the Sun enters Virgo. Don’t hold it back.

AQUARIUS 

This is the second Full Moon in your sign Aquarius, and you might have a lot of feelings about it. Why does it feel like something is in your way? Why can’t you just expand as far as you want? You will. This moment in time is asking you to restructure your life and also take action when you don’t know all of the answers. Did you know that you don’t always need to know the answers? People new and old are teaching you so much on this journey. The ones who come into your sphere are guiding you to your own knowing. Evolution is a messy process and things might work out differently than we expected. Maybe they’ll work out even better than we expected. You are not the same Aquarius that you were back in February, and you will be different still in February 2022. Your efforts have a purpose.

PISCES 

This Full Blue Moon is happening on your axis of hidden or invisible care and service. You might feel like you are still waiting for something to happen but it hasn’t materialized yet. It might take until October for you to feel like things are moving ahead, and until then you need to do all of the daily things required to manage your life. Someone might ask more of you and if you are ready to serve, it could be an exciting prospect. Just be mindful of saying yes in order to prove your worth and value. You are already worthy Pisces, and anyone who receives your wisdom is fortunate.
