Â This AQUARIUS FULL MOON has an extra bit of creative magic with the Sun in Leo. The time is potent to follow our hearts to create new pathways. There is a simultaneous shedding and emerging as we focus to ground our visions into form. Some deep activations happening as well so we must move with the changes, allow what wants to come forth, and trust our inner knowing and guidance.
Here are MYSTIC MAMMA’s gathered insights on the energies of this BLUE MOON in Aquarius:
First from the inspiringÂ Cathy Pagano from her Wisdom of Astrology:
“This weekâ€™s full Moon is the second full Moon to take place in Leo/Aquariusâ€”the first one occurred on July 22, 2013..”
“The energy of Leo is heart-centered and heart-felt.Â Â Leoâ€™s confidence comes from knowing what lies at the heart of lifeâ€”creativity, love, generosity to others and a deep sense of Self.
“The royal nature of Leo stems from this self-confidence in Lifeâ€”when we realize that we are responsible for the choices we make in our lives.Â Â We are not powerless, even in the face of oppression…”
“Leo is the power of fire, of spirit, of creativity.Â Â FireÂ consumes, warms, and illuminates;fireÂ symbolizes purification and transformation.Â Â The alchemical fires transform our consciousness, opening us to deeper insights and wider understanding.
“This 2ndÂ Leo/Aquarius Full Moon activates the energy of one of the four ancient Persian Royal Stars, considered to be sentinels of humanityâ€™s evolution.Â Â The Leo Sun this full Moon is on the royal star, Regulus, located at the Lionâ€™s Heart.Â Â Â When the Sun is on Regulus, it bestows power, authority and honor to those worthy of them.Â Â So let us be worthy to take on our own authority in the world.Â Â Let us own our inner Queen and inner King.
“The Moon is in the airy power sign of Aquarius, symbolizing the Cosmic Mind.Â Â Just as the archetypes reflect the basic principles of the Divine Order, the Aquarian Mind reflects that higher order of thinking.
“Aquarius offers usÂ freedomÂ at the same time as it demands that we find ways to work together for the benefit of all humanity.Â Â We need that larger vision if we want to evolve humanity beyond our culture of violence, self-centeredness and domination into one of peace, partnership and creativity…”
“Other Energies at Play…Mercury and the asteroids Vesta and Ceres join the Leo Sun at the full Moon.Â Â This adds a sharp, creative mind, a sense of self-empowerment and real nurturing to the Sunâ€™s power.Â Â Vesta gives us the focus and passion to pursue your goals; Ceres wants us to look at how we use food and nurturing and fertility; Mercury shows how we use our minds to process and perceive life.Â Â In Leo, they want us to show the world who we really are.”

From the always inspiredÂ Kelley Rosano:
“Your enthusiasm, idealism and creativity could be at an all-time high. You could be bursting with new ideas. You could have sudden insights. You can move from breakdown to breakthrough. You are experiencing a transformation in consciousness.”
“Sometimes your growth can feel weird and strange when you are no longer connecting to your past. But truly, the old way of living no longer works for you.Â You are experiencing new aspects of yourself and life.Â You are giving birth to the new you, and giving birth is painful. This is real work. This is real growth. There is so much to celebrate.Â The more you love and value yourself (Leo). The more you have to give to others (Aquarius).”
“A great way to navigate through life is to use balance in your choices. For instance, instead of asking, ‘Is this a good or bad idea?’ ask ‘What supports my balance?’Â Balance is the key to being present, powerful and effective.”
“Jupiter makes his first of three exact squares (challenge) to Uranus. This starts at the Full Moon. Uranus is Aquarius ruling planet. Uranus is the awakener. Uranus is the planet of change. Uranus wants to liberate your mind and free you from illusions. Uranus wants to free you from your self-imposed limitations. This is how you hold yourself back. This is how you get in your own way…”
“You are being encouraged to break free from the chains that bind you. Let go of what no longer serves your emotional needs and inner security. The more you release the further you can travel…”
“…hold more light and share your light with the world. Hold more light and raise your vibration is what is being asked of you.”
“…The Sun enters Virgo on August 22. Leo gives you the big ideas. Virgo gives you the grounding to make your dreams practical. It is all well in good to have great ideas, but if you cannot put them into action. They are just pipe dreams.”
“Virgo will infuse your ideas with her fertility. Virgo can take your ideas to fruition. You want to be focused on what is useful. What are your next steps? For instance, what are three things you can do each day to further your goals?”
“Mercury the messenger goes home to Virgo on August 23. This can ground your enthusiasm with a sober approach.”
“…Virgo will empower you to be practical and effective. Virgo shows you how you can best serve humanity. You take your talent, gifts and abilities and use them in service to others. This is the August message. Take what you know and have learned and share it with others. We are creating the New Earth together. What we are dreaming we are creating.”

From the insightful Dipali Desai and her Celestial Space Astrology:
“Emotional waves may appear and disappear like fleeting thoughts rippling across the water. Perhaps this time period will help bring people in touch with the emotions that have been put into the iceberg and have been chilling on the back burner for a long time…”
“With the Full Moon in Aquarius, it is helpful to see where and when you disconnect from being fully present to emotions or emotional awareness in favor of ideas and thoughts of the future.Â Although with the Full Moon in Aquarius one is able to be objective, but it is possible to also become aloof or overly analytical rather than completely feeling the emotions that are coming up. This can create a stagnation over time.”
“With any full moon phase, it brings you in touch with emotions and feelings as well as anything that has been lingering in the shadows within the subconscious mind becomes illuminated.”
“If you find yourself too aloof, use the Sun in Leo to help add warmth and stir passion. If you feel too melodramatic and overly subjective, use the Moon in Aquarius to help you with detachment and objectivity.”
“TheÂ Full Moon in Aquarius makes a tense wide aspect to Saturn in Scorpio, suggesting situations or issues bump up against ‘stuck emotional points’. It is helpful to allow residual emotions to come out and then objectivity will provide the information you require as well as being mature and taking responsibility for what you say and how you feel…”
“Intention:Â â€œI embrace the uniqueness that I am and I naturally connect with all of life through the heart center.â€

From astrologerÂ Sarah Varcas an her Astro-Awakenings.uk:
“An astrological Blue Moon is a rare thing and something to be noted. It occurs when the Moon is full twice in a solar month, giving us two successive Full Moons in the same zodiac sign. The second of those Moons is a Blue Moon. The next such moon isnâ€™t until June 2016…”
“A Blue Moon signals the completion of a process which began with theÂ first Full MoonÂ of the two….Throughout the intervening month thereâ€™s been a lot of pressure needing release and emotions needing acknowledgement.
“We have been pushed time and time again to face ourselves, warts and all, in order to take ownership of all that we are and decide how to go about shifting and healing those parts of us which we have ignored, avoided and denied for way too long.
“Such a process requires searing honesty and an unflinching willingness to acknowledge who and what we are. The sword of truth has been wielded throughout this past month, and the more desperately weâ€™ve tried to avoid its cutting edge the more likely we are to have had to face it nonetheless…”
“This is a moment of power, a moment of potential and it is up to each one of us whether we use that power to take ownership of our lives or to reinforce ourselves as victims in a wider web of forces which serve only to oppress us.”
“This is a Moon which seeks to empower us to make positive choices and significant changes in our lives. She sees our potential and shines upon each one of us equally, knowing that within every individual lies the possibility of change and growth, no matter who, where or what we are, what we have done or what we believe.”
“…at times like this we have a golden opportunity for growth and transformation, a chance to release the fetters that keep us constricted and bound. We have an opportunity to â€˜doâ€™ life in a different way, and the more of us that can do that, the greater the potential for inner shifts to be reflected in wider societal and global change.”

From the always wonderful Robert Wilkinson and his Aquarius Papers:
“This Full Moon at 29 Leo-Aquarius is fixed, stabilizing, challenging, and will feel like ‘the end of the end before the beginning. This one helps us see our past expectancies take shape as we emerge from our ‘chrysalis’ and learn a whole new way to live…”
“This consolidating, transforming and visionary Full Moon that will pull us in many different (and sometimes conflicted) directions falls at the 29th degree of Leo and Aquarius. This Lunation, helping us cultivate or receive gifts occurs August 20 at 6:45 PDT, 9:45 pm EDT, and 2:45 am Greenwich (BST) August 21…”
“An overview of this period ruled by this Full Moon shows it will illuminate our ability to be spontaneous and ‘combustive’ in our expression, releasing a lot of individual, mental, and spiritual energy in an anticipation of what is to come. This will be given form through our ability to see a greater vision, a greater work, a greater group contribution, or a larger form of world service”
“Here we can use a feeling-intuition to graduate into a new realm of being, and go through a transfiguration in line with ideals we formed in 2010-2011 when Neptune was at 29 Aquarius.”
“This Lunation is extremely high on inspiration, offering us all gifts in the midst of our challenging or extreme circumstances as indicated by the powerful Jupiter square Uranus coupled with Mercury as the focal point for the disruptive Uranus square Pluto again forming in this Lunation…”
“The focus of the light shows a way for us to contribute in greater ways to enduring efforts that will outlive us. We can emerge from our cocoon and find ourselves in an entirely new way of living and relating to others. The Moon will focus the inspiration and spontaneity of the Sun and those who have prepared will find themselves totally transformed…”
“We also have had numerous opportunities to learn the power of harmlessness, and those who have lessened their fear can now radiate a calm that transcends normal understanding. This begins the completion of the lessons around the overcoming of fear and receiving rewards for embracing that gentle way…”
“The next two weeks will bring a dramatic appearance of new spiritual qualities and events, and those who go deep and understand the nature of the subconscious mind will find new power and answers to the Great Mystery weâ€™ve all been exploring for several months. Since Jupiter is firmly in Cancer, we can use emotional intelligence as we explore and find truth in new cares, new feelings, and a new sense of stability.”
“As with last monthâ€™s Lunations, family and personal feelings will run strong, so be clear about what youâ€™re feeling as a result of the facts youâ€™re seeing or the actions youâ€™ve taken or are taking. Some may experience impatience and frustration at the pace of the process, while others will glimpse a new identity suddenly revealed that revolutionizes the life.”
