Aquarius Full Moon

Astrological news this week: Supercharged intelligence under the Aquarius Full Moon

Astrological update for the week of August 8-15, 2022

Other than the Full Moon (read on for more), the biggest news this week is a harmonious trine from Jupiter to Ceres. Jupiter is expansive and buoyant, and tends to expand whatever energies are in its path and in this case those energies are focused on nurturing the delicate balance of body, mind and spirit that nourish the soul in incarnated form. Nutritious food, expressions of physical joy such as movement and dance, bathing the senses through aromatherapy and forms of touch – these are all ways in which Ceres can inspire greater balance within to help us through challenging times.

Jupiter’s influence in this cooperative aspect helps to expand the focus on these activities to nurture the body and soul. This will of course happen without any attention from us, but if we take advantage of the sunshine provided by Jupiter we can experience even more benefit from actions to support our physical and mental health.

This is a great lead-up to the Aquarius Full Moon on August 11th. The emotional and sensitive Moon is not always that comfortable in Aquarius, the sign of the transpersonal and the detachment of science and reason, and the Leo Sun carries the archetype of brilliant self-expression which is at odds here with the dispassion of Aquarius. All Full Moons feature the Sun and Moon in opposite signs, and a balance and integration between the two polarities is required.

Aquarius is ruled traditionally by the planet Saturn, the dispassionate arbiter of truth and justice, and its modern ruler is Uranus which bestows the quirky eccentricity which we often associate with Aquarius. Under the Aquarius Full Moon […]

Sunday Inspiration: Take the perspective of an eagle for a broader view

Susan Seddon Boulet

What a time we are living in!  And this week is particularly powerful: a Full Moon at the 29th degree of Aquarius, the modern ruler of Aquarius (Uranus) stationary in the sky having just turned retrograde.  Under the modern rulership of Uranus, the Aquarian energy opens up portals of energy and make it difficult to sleep.  Uranus is known as the Awakener, and sometimes we have to take that quite literally!  So today I offer you this piece of wisdom as we take the leap over the chasm of transition. ❤️


This moment humanity is experiencing can be seen as a door or a hole. The decision to fall in the hole or walk through the door is up to you. If you consume the news 24 hours a day, with negative energy, constantly nervous, with pessimism, you will fall into this hole. But if you take the opportunity to look at yourself, to rethink life and death, to take care of yourself and others, then you will walk through the portal.

Take care of your home, take care of your body. Connect with your spiritual home. When you take care of yourself, you take care of everyone at the same time.

Do not underestimate the spiritual dimension of this crisis. Take the perspective of an eagle that sees everything from above with a broader view. There is a social question in this crisis, but also a spiritual question. The two go hand in hand.  Without the social dimension we fall into fanaticism. Without the spiritual dimension, we fall into pessimism and futility.

Are you ready to face this crisis? Grab your toolbox and use all the tools at your disposal.

Learn resistance from the […]

The second Aquarius Full Moon in 2021

art by Wendy Andrews

It is rare to have two Full Moons in one sign (sometimes called a Blue Moon, hence the expression “Once in a Blue Moon”).  Since the Full Moons occur approximately 28-29 degrees apart, this only happens when the first Full Moon is at the first degree of a sign, and the second at the last.  The Moon entered Aquarius on Friday and began the crescendo to the explosion of energies at the Full Moon, the exact opposition from the Sun in Leo to the Aquarius Moon, which occurs at 8 am EDT (noon UTC) August 22nd.  The emotional and sensitive Moon is not always that comfortable in Aquarius, the sign of the transpersonal and the detachment of science and reason, and the Leo archetype of brilliant self-expression is at odds here with the dispassion of Aquarius.

The 29th degree is a significant portal – the very last degree of a sign, there is a “do or die” component to this placement, almost a desperation or last gasp before the planet moves into the next sign. This is an important threshold between two experiences, and a need to complete the one before moving into another.  That’s why having two Full Moons in a row in the same sign is significant – it marks the early enthusiasm of the sign, followed by the frantic need to complete the cycle before moving into the next archetype like when we cram for a test before a final exam.

The energies of the Aquarius archetype are so potent right now:  there is a cold detachment to Aquarius under the traditional Saturn rulership, and a need to see from the perspective of airy detachment and observation rather than […]

Astrological forecast for the week of August 16, 2021: Retrograde season and a Full Moon

There is a lot going on this week, so grab a cup of coffee or tea and let’s get started!

Retrograde season. This week Uranus turns retrograde, but it has been virtually stationary at 14 degrees Taurus for six weeks.  When a planet prepares for a direction change it appears to be at a standstill, just like a car that is making a U-turn.  At that time its influence can be the most potent, especially if it is hitting a sensitive point in your chart (anywhere from 10-20 degrees of the fixed signs Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius).

With Uranus turning retrograde we will have four major planets retrograde plus Chiron, for a total of five.  That is on the high side of normal and nowhere close to the retrograde energies of 2020 when every planet which could turn retrograde WAS retrograde.  Still, in September Mercury will turn retrograde and then there will be six so we are definitely in retrograde season.  This means that life will not progress at the pace which we strive for, and there may be a lot of looking in the rear view mirror to see where mistakes were made, and having to make those repairs before we can look ahead once again.  Meanwhile the Uranian influence is powerful – revolution, reaction, breaking free of restraints and regulations – all of these energies are deep at work to rip away the trappings of the old age as we go hurtling into the new one.

Venus enters Libra.  Venus enters its own sign of Libra just after midnight on August 16.  Venus is most at home in Libra, and for the next few weeks harmony and a peaceful experience will be of paramount importance.  Venus craves […]
