Full Moon in Aquarius on 15th August 2019


The Moon in Astrology

The Moon represents our internal world of emotions, feelings, inner security, deepest personal needs, the unconscious and intuition.   Our feelings of inner safety come from what is familiar to us. This represents subconscious patterns previously developed which have become instinctual relating to our past. 

The Moon is also associated with our mother or our most nurturing parent, our inner mother, our inner child (Moon’s energy is strongest in childhood), home, ancestors or the past and family. It is receptive, responsive and reflective while protective, reacting instinctively and spontaneously.

When we look at our natal chart, the placement of our moon will disclose how we see ourselves, our emotional tendencies and what archetypal patterns are operating under the surface.  It also tells us how we protect ourselves and how we make ourselves feel safe and comfortable always ensuring feelings of safety.

The Moon rules the sensitive sign of Cancer and the 4th House which is one of the cardinal signs that moves us from past to future on a moment to moment basis. This is due to the Nodes of the Moon; the South Node (past what is familiar) and North Node (future where new experiences await).  Depending on where your Moon’s Node positions are in your natal chart, your Moon position will tell you how you transition between the two or from past to future. 

In your natal chart (the time of your birth) the Moons location tells you your emotional tendencies while the Moon’s current location as it moves across sky impacts on our feelings and behaviour in the present. She speaks to us through our feelings and emotions.

The Moon is Reflective. 

Our feelings of security are created through consistent and familiar behaviour, reflecting back to us a constant reality.  Because of these feelings of  familiarity, it produces a sense of belonging that nurtures and protects us in turn giving us inner security. 

The Moon in our natal chart will tell you how you see yourself and how you nurture yourself emotionally.  As we go through life we are continually in a process of evolution and it is through our emotional body we grow and mature, not through our intellect.  It is no wonder that the Moon’s natural home is in Cancer, 4th House where we seek our inner security with the opposite of Capricorn being where we seek outer security and maturity.

Dysfunctional Side of The Moon

Because the Moon symbolizes our feelings it’s important to address the shadow or dysfunctional side of the Moon as well.  Best described as emotionally self-indulgent, timid, wishy-washy, over reactive, moody, lazy, indecisive and imaginative.  Pure emotion. If unhealthy or distorted imagination is fuelled by pure emotion it leads to feelings of emptiness and irrationality.

About the Sign of Aquarius

Aquarius is the sign that focuses on the greater good, the world, the animals and humanity. This sign is known as the rebel of the zodiac, when it is not satisfied on how things are it will instigate change with its brilliant ideas and thoughts. 

Individuals who born under the sign of Aquarius or have active Aquarian energy do not like all to be seen as one of the mob, they believe they are different to everyone else. Aquarians are very friendly and helpful however they can be detached and aloof and that prevents others from getting close to them. This can frustrate relationships because of the lack of intimacy.  

Aquarians can be too objective at times only looking at the big picture because they incorporate the good of the many after all they are the humanitarians. They can really come up with wild and big ideas that can be absolutely brilliant, but they need to come down to Earth to look more at the details to keep them on their quest.

Aquarius loves to break the barriers, to rebel to feel totally liberated so it can push us to take risks. This is good news, it allows us to add some spice and pizazz to our life and get out of our comfort zone.  Don’t be afraid to burst out of limiting ways, Aquarius will give you the permission to be totally different and inventive.

Full Moon in Aquarius

No matter where our Sun or Moon is in our Natal Chart (Birth Chart), we are all effected by the New Moon in Aquarius.

The energy of Aquarius calls to us to be different, to be the unique individual that you already are. The Aquarian Full Moon shows you where you need to change depending on where it is in your chart.

Aquarius removes old patterns that keep us stuck in past patterns. Aquarius dares us to break traditional routines which keep us deeply stuck in old patterns. It is rebellious and motivates us to become more enlightened, compassionate and loving to all living things.

The wonderful thing about Aquarius is that it’s about breaking new ground. It can for some be the way out of wallowing in your emotions allowing you to take a more analytical look at your life. 

Full Moons ignite more activity and energy and with Aquarius being the most outgoing of all the signs the Aquarius Full Moon is fun-loving and will help you let your hair down and kick up your heels. If you don’t know where Aquarius is transiting through your chart prepare yourself for surprises. 

As we share the tragedies that happen in our world it creates a cohesiveness in each of us, bringing us closer together as one human family, together with our animal friends and our planet.
