The Full Moon for August falls in Aquarius on the 13th – luckily for us, that would be Saturday the 13th, NOT Friday the 13th! A full moon on Friday the 13th … well, I will let your little minds take it to the extremes of where that could go! Oh, and we do need to remember that this is all going on during a Mercury retrograde!
What can we expect with an Aquarius Full Moon? Focus is on new ideas – perhaps unconventional, but certainly original! This is a time when intellect prevails, with projects often focused on society at large, rather than the individual. Compassion and caring for others looms large, with thoughts being on friends, rather than family.
One thing to watch for here is dealing with electrical appliances. This is a caveat for Aquarius energy, but it is also a caveat for Mercury retrograde, which not only deals with communications and travel, but also with things mechanical and electrical.
One thing to watch for in an Aquarius Full Moon is to remember to express our emotions. This is not a time for holding back, or appearing to be cold. We need to address those issues where change, and perhaps healing, are indicated. One word here – authentic. It is time to be authentic. In honor of the Mercury retrograde, past issues will resurface in present situations. Deal with the issues – embrace the shadows and release them.
Things to ask ourselves on this Full Moon:
Who needs my attention at this time?
Who do I need to show love to at this time?
What do I need to let go of?
Where do I need to heal?
What patterns am I seeing in my life?
What issues from the past are resurfacing?
How can I most comfortable address those issues?
During this Full Moon, make an effort to be good to yourself. Listen to yourself, honor your feelings, honor your fears. When we come to that point at which we like ourselves, and can be friends with ourselves, we are ready to move that energy out into the world and make a difference.
