August 2021 Full Moon in Aquarius 29°36

The week concludes with a Full Moon at 19 degrees of air sign Aquarius. This full moon is called a seasonal Blue Moon. There are, in fact, two types of Blue Moons: a seasonal (occurs when there are four full moons in one season and the third one is called a blue moon), and a monthly Blue Moon (which takes place when there are two full moons in one month and the second one is called a blue moon). We will rarely have two types of these full moons in one year—next time in 2048.

A 29 degree of zodiac sign is called an anaretic degree. With this full moon (the Moon is considered a planet in astrology) falling at such a late degree, this could be a highlight of some important events in your life. You might have to make an important decision, and at the same time, there could be some urgency with the luminaries being so close to changing the signs.

Aquarius is a fixed sign connected to the unusual, modern futuristic and the unexpected. A full moon in Aquarius allows us to see life/things from a different perspective. There is a greater focus on group activities, humanitarian matters, social justice and freedom.
With the Moon conjunct Jupiter, some of us might be dealing with legal matters, foreign affairs or legal issues. Since Jupiter is retrograde, things from the past may return at this time, especially the ones related to law, foreign travel or higher education.

Saturn, the traditional ruler of Uranus, aligns harmoniously with planet Venus. Venus trine Uranus is wonderful for dealing with long-term investments and commitments. It is also an excellent opportunity to work through any relationships or financial problems there might be in your life. Any artistic or creative work can result in heightened productivity.

The modern dispositor of this full moon is Uranus, and Uranus has just turned retrograde in Taurus, where it will remain in this motion until early January 2022. Uranus retrograde in earthy Taurus is about re-defying one’s values and finding new ways to live in this new reality. During this time, you might find yourself in situations when you are pushed out of your comfort zone in order to rethink the next step you take in your life.

Also, at this full moon, Mars and Mercury in perfectionist Virgo will trine Uranus in Taurus. This planetary combination reminds us to pay attention to detail when working on important projects around the time of this full moon.

Happy Full Moon in Aquarius!
