August 10, 2014, Full Moon in Aquarius – “You Could Be Swinging on a Star”

"Would you like to swing on a star?
 Carry moonbeams home in a jar?
 You'd be better off than you are –
 you could be swinging on a star...."

"Swinging on a Star" by Jimmy Van Heusen and Johnny Burke

two minutes of Aquarius. It is a Moon that showcases our uniqueness ( more so if you have Aquarius, or Moon in Aquarius in your birth chart) and celebrates our ability to become more than we have ever dreamed possible.  this Full Moon it's time to explore the road less traveled – to find joy by proclaiming your individuality and stepping to your own music.  Our Moon is high-functioning in Aquarius, which means it takes the best of Aquarian traits (See blog: 
Aquarius - Independent and Artistic, or Divaand couples them with the Moon's magical, mystical energy.  

August 10th brings us a ‘Super Moon,’ one of three this summer season that places Lady Moon uncommonly close to Earth while on her orbital path. When she travels so close, as she does four to six times every year, we say the Moon is at perigee.  ( See blog: "Full Strawberry Moon at Perigee") When she travels at the farthest point of her orbital path, we say the Moon is at apogee.  Naturally, when the Moon is at perigee the tides are higher, the pull of the lunar energy is stronger and the astrological effects are a little more significant.  

Full Moon in Aquarius is a well-balanced Moon made for discovering the new and different while maintaining a rational foothold.  This is not an overly emotional Moon.  It's a good thing too, because not only is the Moon at perigee, but it is also square with Saturn, our hall monitor planet.  Explore yourself, but stay grounded and don't go throwing common sense out the window.  Moderation is always a wise policy when stepping out into virgin territory.

This will be a social Moon, friendly, although slightly reserved.  There's an inborn shyness in Moon in Aquarius that makes us want to hang back a little and take in what's happening before jumping into the pool. Trust your intuition when it comes to people, places and events. If it feels like a poor choice, it probably is.

We’ve been blessed with a steady flow of creative juice this summer and the August Full Moon keeps that flow coming.  Full Moons are about culminations, bringing the hard work from the past month into fruition.  By using Full Moon in Aquarius to find your spark, you'll push past you self-imposed boundaries and discover that you can be more than you ever thought you could. Loosen the reins and explore.
