Aquarius Full Moon August 1, 2023

Aquarius is the Exile, the Genius, the Scientist, the Truth Sayer and Revolutionary! It is a fixed Air sign that is ruled by Saturn originally and has Uranus as its’ modern ruler. Aquarius is the natural ruler of the eleventh house where friends, hopes, dreams and social groups are found. “I know.”  Symbolized by the Water Bearer representative of the Mystic Healer pouring out the profound visions and hopes for an evolved future of humanity.

August’s full Moon is referred to as the Sturgeon Moon because fishing for these giant sturgeons of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain is plentiful this time of year. The prehistoric-looking fish dates to around 136 million years ago and have been called “living fossils.” The word “sturgeon” means “the stirrer,” which is what this giant fish does when it is looking for food; it stirs up the mud and silt on river and lake bottoms. Just like the planet, Uranus, squaring Venus retrograde – forgotten and hidden information from the past regarding love, money, possessions, agriculture, and financial structures gets “stirred.” Take time each day to do breath work and nourish the body.

An opposition between Mercury and Saturn supports intensified psychic ability and the truth being revealed. Mercury is slowing down to station retrograde on August 23 in Virgo – a suitable time to make a practice of double-checking details and keep any innovative ideas to yourself for now. Allow your subconscious extra time to decompress and think about the task list before acting. Many paths lead to the same goal and Aquarius teaches us to be open to unusual perspectives and flexible with how dreams and visions are obtained. Here is an opportunity to practice detachment so the Soul can intuitively resonate without interference from the Ego.

Aquarius rules the calves, ankles, and circulation. Circulation relates to being in the Flow of life, trying not to resist the twists and turns of the water flowing down river over the rocks. Envision your burdens or problems as the rocks in the river and you are the water easily maneuvering, rolling strong and steady over the rocks. Meditate on just the river and your breath to find your center and be at peace. Herbs that can assist in circulation are Cayenne, Garlic, Ginseng and Oats. If you experience discomfort with an ankle, try to be more mobile and consider all directions in each situation. The element of Air is intelligence and Aquarius is highly stimulated by knowledge especially with science and inventions.

We are seeing evolution and revolution with the World Wide Web and all social media platforms with the desire of transparency and the Truth. Explore your own inner inventor and warrior. Is there an idea to revolutionize the way a task is performed? A new software program? Aquarius is all about individuality and embracing our differences – no longer just robotically going through daily routines, instead a deep motivation to change routines and seek a more authentic way of Being.
