August 12, 2022: FULL MOON in AQUARIUS

The brightest night of the month is here once more! Full Moons bring energies of completion and culmination, and oftentimes, flashes of emotional insights that were previously overlooked. This month’s FULL MOON happens in 19°21′ of intellectual AQUARIUS, the sign of the genius.

This FULL MOON aligns itself with the month’s somber, tension-filled energy, giving light to sudden changes that we may not be willing to accommodate. The MOON (Feelings, Emotions, Mood), joins SATURN  (Traditions, Determination, Hard Lessons, Restriction) in a tense square-off (90°) with the massive conjunction of MARS, URANUS and the NORTH NODE, astrological planets/points which are all known to represent great transformation and movement, among others.

The necessity of change comes towards us with so much force during these next 2 weeks, so much so that this FULL MOON energy may cultivate the restricting of emotions, prompting most of us to build walls around our vulnerability. Being defensive is triggered by something to defend against, but also, it points us to where there is weakness in need of defending. Wounds that need healing. The Full Moon shines a light in these tender spaces inside us, gently at first. What are you fighting for? What do you need to protect? Why?

The awareness may eventually become a nagging thought, an incessant poke, and eventually, a glaring light that may obscure sight, forcing us to crack open our self-fortified armor, so that the intense discomfort may burst out,  finally creating a pathway for the medicine to enter. Eventually, whatever it is that we may need to heal, will seep in through the opening. For some, what comes through is laughter. For some, love. For some, happiness, or maybe, rest. And hopefully, for all of us, if we are lucky, the most elusive of all – peace.
