August’s highly charged Aquarius Full Moon is all about healing the past and energtic uplevelling, thanks to some positive aspects between the luminaries and Chiron.
The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon puts the focus front and centre on the ascension process with its stair metaphor – let’s not forget that it occurs smack bang in the middle of the 2020 Lion’s Gate Portal, which in itself, is set to create some fairly seismic frequency shifts.
And with Uranus, planet of shock and awe, catalysing some lightning speed tower moments and personal awakenings, you may be surprised at where you find yourself by the end of this two week lunar phase.
We also have a number of oppositions occurring between Mercury and the three outer planets currently retrograde in Capricorn – Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto – both before and after this particular Full Moon, which could indicate feeling split or polarized between heart and head. We may find ourselves at crossroads, or be faced with a number of important choices.
Although you may be feeling tense and anxious as a result of the extra electrical energy surging through your nervous system from Uranus, or under pressure to make decisions quickly due to a cardinal Mars-Jupiter square, this may not actually be the case. So wherever possible, try to ground yourself and slow things down in order to work through those nervous physical charges and come back to a place of calm and centredness.
That way, you get to look before you leap, rather than do the knee-jerk lemming thing that our reptilian fight or flight system tends to do when triggered. This was the clear message from the Lions Gate Portal I Ching Divination – earth yourself (Hex 2) before riding the elephant (Hex 16), which is large, graceful and powerful and never moves quickly. Check it out if you haven’t seen it already.
