Aquarius Full Moon
August 11, 2022: Full Moon at Aquarius 19°21’, 9:36 pm EDT.
This Full Moon is the gateway into the fourth and final Saturn/Uranus square and wow! The discomfort of the unpredictable reigns in our collective experience; what better words to describe a challenging relationship between constraining Saturn and shattering Uranus?
This Full Moon hits the square hard. The Aquarius Moon is conjunct to retrograde Saturn. The Sun/Moon opposition forms a challenging relationship (a t-square) with Uranus. Saturn and Uranus are now within 3 ½ degrees of their final square. Mars is in a waning conjunction to Uranus and a square to Saturn. And this Full Moon closes out the Lionsgate Portal which opened at the Leo New Moon.
This intensity is going to stay awhile so how do we deal with it? First, understand that what is happening is the result of the 2020 Great Shift – the conjunction of Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter in the latter degrees of Capricorn. This conjunction initiated the dismantling of society as we knew it. 2021 brought the first three Saturn/Uranus squares and was marked by uncertainty and unpredictability. This year we’ve had something of a break for about six months. The craziness was starting to feel like the New Normal and most of us were finding ways to adapt. But over the next few months? Fasten your seat belts because we are in for a bumpy ride.
Not all is grim. Three solar system objects span the fire sign Aries – Jupiter, Chiron, and Eris – and another three spread though Leo – Venus, Ceres, and the Sun. There is a creative flow that reveals new possibilities. Know that we are in new territory; beware of old forms disguised as new ideas. The dissolution is not complete and new seeds are being planted. Nurture them in your own life and in the world. Be patient and steadfast. True innovation requires time.
