"I find only freedom in the realms of eccentricity." ~ David Bowie
This month's Full Moon is on Monday, August 3rd at 11:59 am (EDT) at 11º 45' of Aquarius, opposite the Sun in Leo. While Leo is the development of one's inner light, Aquarius dares to expand that light to the edge. It's eccentric, daring, innovative, futuristic, humanitarian and represents society. This Full Moon challenges us to brandish the weird within and determine where our own personal revolution has occurred so we can be more ourselves for the greater good. The vibe is similar to the New Moon in Aquarius on January 4th, 2020. Let's revisit some of the themes!
The "catch phrase" I gave the New Moon was Expect the Unexpected. We sure have seen the unexpected in the last 6 months, haven't we?! This time, a very similar energy is present due to the same aspect of the Sun and Moon to the planet Uranus (catalyst, change, individuation). This only happens twice per year, and now it's round two. The energy may feel gritty and electric, with undertones of restriction on thoughts or forms of expression. There is a lot of fixed energy, so it may take a bit of coaxing to get out of your comfort zone.
What has moved into your life that helped you individuate?
What has happened in the last six months that allowed more freedom in your life?
Were there any catalysts for change? Did you embrace them?
Has anything pushed you to be more yourself that also helped you bring your unique gifts to your community or even humanity?
Contemplate, release what hasn't served you and offer gratitude.
One area of focus and reflection for this Full Moon is on any recent, relatively new ideas that you can nurture to fruition, especially if they contribute to your own personal growth. Venus (connection, values, love, beauty) will finally be shifting signs, leaving a very extended stay in Gemini for the nurturing waters of Cancer on August 7th.
The planetary parade I last wrote about on July 1st is still so lovely, and now all visible planets can be seen in the night to early morning sky. It's beautiful! Catch it over the next couple of days before sleuthy Mercury disappears from the early morning sky.
There's still time to order the Astrological Aromatherapy Aquarius Full Moon blend! It features Jasmine Absolute (Leo), Neroli (Aquarius) and bit of Patchouli.
I have been diffusing it and love it. The Patchouli gives the flowers a more earthy aroma. The blend has been curated to the energy of this Full Moon.
Order it here.

The energies will continue to shift after the Full Moon as Mercury and Venus change signs; they've both had extended stays in Cancer and Gemini, respectively. I hope the energy of this Full Moon dares you to be different, to let loose a bit and inspires your imagination about the future.
Full Moon Blessings from my inner Eccentric to yours,
