A Full Moon always brings illumination and realization especially in the area of your chart where the Full Moon is occurring, as well as the opposite sign where the Sun is transiting.
The polarity of the opposites are brought into focus for release and healing. A full Moon represents a culmination point.
The axis of the Aquarius Full Moon (which rules the 11th house) and Leo Sun (which rules the 5th house) represents your self identity and self image and the others in your life, i.e. friendships, business associates, organizations to which you belong, etc.
You may be able to have some inner realizations about your relationship patterns that attract certain people and situations with others that until now have operated unconsciously. You may be able to extricate yourself from patterns that have undermined, or sabotaged you in relationships with others.
The full Moon in Aquarius can liberate you and free you up from unfulfilling relationships. It can also be time when you shine with others and do well in making presentations to groups of people. If you’ve put in the work necessary in your own personal development now you may experience rewards and achieve a new status in some organization, or association.
All things related to Aquarius, i.e. computers, humanitarianism, freedom, progressive reforms, intergalactic travel, technological advancements and scientific discoveries come into focus. Expect escalation in all things related to Aquarian themes.
Future visions of life on earth are being born. Sudden revelations are now likely to occur in humanity’s psyche.
Where in your life are you experiencing an extraordinary illumination/revelation? Or, where in your life are you finally letting go of something that is 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. The 11th house is also associated with good luck.
The Aquarius Full Moon marks the time of Lunar Lammas, the time of year traditionally when harvest begins. It’s the time of year when harmony, balance and renewal are celebrated.

Tips for How the Aquarius Full Moon Can Affect You Personally
Everyone has the Aquarius Moon influence in one, or more areas of their chart. Here are a few areas of your chart where you can experience the Aquarius Moon influence:
- Uranus, the awakener, rules the sign of Aquarius. Uranus is eccentric in its orbit and can have unusual effects on the area of your life where Uranus is in transit (currently Taurus).
- What personal planets, or points are located in your 11th house? Do you have any easy flowing, or hard aspects to this house from one or more of your personal planets, or points? The easy flowing aspects offer support and protection to your feeling of esteem and recognition in the world. While harsh aspects will augment the challenges presented at this time.
- What house is your natal Uranus located in your personal astrology chart? This is probably the greatest significator for how the Uranian charged Aquarius moon will affect you. If you have harmonious contacts from your personal planets to your natal Uranus then you will feel more supported at this time. You may want to lean into the energy symbolized by these harmonious aspects to your natal Uranus for support.
- If there are stressful contacts to your natal Uranus you’ll want to take note of this. Challenging aspects give you an opportunity for growth. Remember to always let yourself be guided to the best course of action.
- The moon moves quickly through each sign and house, so whatever happens now, though it may leave a lasting imprint upon your psyche, the emotions themselves will be transient. Best to let your emotions settle before taking any action that may have long standing results.
The Aquarius Full Moon cycle brings fresh realizations, illuminations, rewards and fulfillment. A peak of the Aquarian charge of energy can be felt at the Full Moon. The window of any ‘shocking’ realizations can be felt especially from the Leo New Moon until the Virgo New Moon on August 17th when we start a new cycle of renewal and harvest.
