Aquarius has our full attention

….not just because, as a Sun sign, it holds the reigning position for many collaborators, friends, my wubby and even my own #1 placement.

This morning, Sunday August 22nd, we were graced with another Full Moon in Aquarius for 2021. That’s right! TWO AQUA FULL MOONS. A balance between the macro and micro comes deeply to mind in these times, and times they are a-changin’. Drastically, dramatically, devastatingly, but also perhaps divinely, in deconstruction, a possibility of hope. Aquarius is Futuristic. Innovation and introspection are the strong suit of the strongest Air sign in the Zodiac.

With a plethora of powerful placements, the free-flow Aquarius Moon in opposition to the solar-powered Leo Sun marks a cycle completed. Into Virgo, we go, Earth Goddess goodness, as Summer simmers down. On a larger scale, however, the cosmos has more importantly dealt with a shift as Jupiter switched back into the Aqua realm late July. Since 2020’s Winter Solstice, the Great Conjunction has re-energized the Aqua energies, ushering in a new era. Some believe that the Age of Aquarius was in the ’60s, the Internet age of the ’90s, but perhaps possibly it is here now.

The “astrological age”, one of the least defined phenomena by astrologers, is fuzzy to pinpoint, but it is significant. We have seen all levels of uprisings in the US, the year rolling out with the historic (and embarrassing) “storming” of the Capitol. Naive belief systems of heightened consciousness, the swift overwhelming presence of arcane misogynistic racism, murders abounding mid-year, climate crisis quickening at the pace. The fantastical Pleiadian bubble of bliss quickly became frantic Paleolethic pandemonium. Still, with starry eyes, Saturn’s endings and Jupiter’s higher awakening promise to open a sort of portal to stubborn minds, for better or worse. This concept repeats in question with the August Aqua Full Moon. 

I do find it annoying that Aquarius is portrayed as “hippie dippie”, though the passionate part rings true. I see Aquarius more as a wizard, a scientist, always creative, though possibly teetering between air-head and analytical AI vibes. But IDEAS, always ideas.

Since The Femme Moon light-heartedly explores archetypes in mythology and pop culture, ancient and modern alike, our love for Kate Bush seems a perfect representation of an Aquarius Moon. Not only is her Moon in Aquarius and she is a Leo Sun, her Mercury is also in Virgo, all current planetary positions of this 2nd Aquarius Full Moon in August. The Lunar Aquarian is eccentric, artistic and capable of interpretation: “Those with the Moon in Aquarius seem to have access to the mysteries of the universe through their inner lives.”
