This rare second Aquarius Full moon (in a month’s time), at the critical 29 degree point, marks a time when missed opportunities get re-energized.
You and our world-at-large will have a second chance to embrace an opportunity for the fulfillment of all things related to Aquarius, i.e. computers, humanitarianism, freedom, progressive reforms, intergalactic travel, technological advancements, scientific discoveries.
Future visions of life on earth are being born. Sudden revelations are now likely to occur in humanity’s psyche.
The Aquarius Full Moon is Conjunct to Jupiter Rx (the planet of abundance and expansion) and in a wide Conjunction to Saturn Rx and, once again, supporting expansion and new societal structures coming into form.
We also have other auspicious astrological alignments occurring at this time augmenting the opportunity present for birthing a future that aligns the earth and her inhabitants with cosmic forces. You might say, planetary events are helping to re-align and harmonize events on earth with universal cosmic intelligence.
Uranus at 14° 47’ Taurus is Trine to Mars (explosive energetic action) at 14° 56’ Conjunct Mercury (communication and means of connecting) at 18° 56’ of Virgo. On the zodiac wheel Taurus resides in the 2nd hose representing personal wealth and material values, while Virgo resides in the 6th house representing daily life, work and lifestyle routines.
All things related to these two matters (personal assets) and (daily routines) will get a tremendous energetic boost. This explosive combination of energy though positively aligned is unstable. There can be disruptions related to life on earth, i.e. explosions, earthquakes, blackouts, power grids offline and the like, can happen. Whatever, is occurring now moves humanity and the earth forward to a new future being born.
We also have a Trine between Saturn at 8° 43’ Aquarius and Venus at 7° 26’ Libra. This Trine energy is excellent for birthing a new romantic love relationship. Or, with all the other ‘hot’ and 'spicy' charged up energy occurring, a sudden tryst may occur that just as quickly burns itself out.
If negotiations are in the works this is a short window of opportunity which must be seized.
Things that have been in the works for some time are likely to get the green light and a jolt of energy for moving forward to completion. The more structure that’s been developed for grounding this energy the more likely long term results can manifest.
Illumination and sudden realizations are an important part of the mix of celestial energies at this second Aquarius Full Moon.
Of course, a Full Moon is always Opposite to the Sun. The Sun is currently transiting Leo. The positive characteristic of a Leo Sun is the expression of radiant creativity. A lower expression of this energy is narcissistic egoism. The Aquarius Full Moon’s Conjunction to Jupiter will expand the Leo Sun’s expression. Much can be brought to awareness that can help us deal with what may have been lurking beneath the surface. Everything becomes more obvious and there can be no mistake about motives.
Additionally, Neptune at 22° 23’ Pisces is in a wide Opposition to Mars Conjunct Mercury in Virgo. This Opposition highlights the struggle of celestial energies playing themselves out. There’s tension between higher ideals and dreams one has for the future and the real world practical details that need to be negotiated and worked out.
The 29° Aquarius Full Moon is within a four degrees of a Conjunction to Fomalhaut, a first degree Royal Wealth Star at 3° 52 Pisces. Since the ancient days of Persia, Fomalhaut (along with the Royal Stars Antares, Regulus and Aldeberan) has been appointed as one of the four guardians of the sky.
Fomalhaut is one of brightest star in the sky. As with everything manifest in the material world, the Royal Stars can bring both positive and negative influences to one’s life. A star of alchemy, the more positive aspects of Fomalhaut are magic, fame and faith. While negative manifestations can include addiction and undesirable associations. Archangel Gabriel is stationed here as the Watcher/Protector of the North. Generally, the North represents the trials people must endure and the cleansing they must undergo, so that wisdom may be born.
29° 37’ Aquarius Full Moon
Aquarius Full Moon (2nd Aquarius Full Moon)
Sunday, August 22, 5:02am PT (vc)
Void of Course (vc) means the full moon is not making any exact aspects. Finishing touches on whatever might be outstanding can occur now. It feels like a very peaceful and calm summer compared to last summer though there are tense and disruptive forces that help to set things on a new and better course.
Essential Oil to Use: Frankincense
Use the ancient oils and oils commonly used for celebration rituals and in rites of passage.
Check where (which house) the Aquarius Full Moon is occurring in your own personal astrology chart. This will give you greater insight into the area of your life where you’ll be experiencing an illumination, as well as letting go of the old and outworn. Where in your life is it time to move on?
Whatever, does not move you forward to your destiny and fulfillment as an individual must be released. As Uranus rules the 11th house (friendships and associates), your social circles can get realigned to support better future prospects. You can also experience good luck coming through a friend, or associate.

You can perform your Meditation anytime starting from the time of the Aquarius Full Moon on August 22nd until the First Quarter Waning Moon on August 30th at 12:13am PT.

What you will need:
- A white candle
Essential oil or blend - use one of the recommended oil, or blend of oils
Make sure you are in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.

Gaze into the candle flame as you begin to breathe in fully and deeply and exhale any tension. The candle flame reflects your own Divine heart center.
Continue inhaling the scent of your oil and releasing any tension for 1-5 minutes.
