Full Moon in Aquarius
August 3, 2020
Once again, our skies will be filled with the luminosity of the magnificent full moon on August 3, 2020.
The full moon in Capricorn/Aquarius will be sitting pretty at 11 degrees, depending upon the orb. Being that it is also in the Leo-Aquarius axis, there is so much to say. The brilliance of this moon may not be seen clearly as its brilliance may be less noticeable due to it occurring at 11:59am EST.
Even though many western ideologies may claim that full moons are endings, in VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories), they are a very spiritual time for new beginnings, to wash away the old and bring new. The ancient writings ask how can anyone say in the darkness there is a beginning and how can anyone see? And how can anyone say there are endings when everything is so much clearer in the moon light (read more about it here).
The August full moon is also known as the Full Sturgeon Moon, as named by the Native Americans. The Sturgeon moon is commonly named after the sturgeon fish available around the Great Lakes. However, the tribes in the southern part of the Americas name it the Full Red Moon because of the warmth which makes the moon appear red and hazy. In European nations it was the named the Green Corn Moon due to the green leaves on the corn which protect the kernels of corn, allowing them to be sweet and ripe.
When the Moon is full, the heaviness of the Moon on one side of the earth and the Sun on the other, produces an unbalanced draw. This pressure adds problems due to our make-up which consists of 80% water; therefore, distressing humans as well as the earth. Again, I would not be surprised to hear of rivers overflowing, hurricanes, tornadoes, or anything that mixes with water, but there may even be chances of power failure due to Neptune influences and electrical outages with the surge of Aquarius.
But this is nothing usual as things seem to repeat themselves so naturally in the world. There is something mysterious with the times since 2019, as you may have read in my previous blogs; things just seem to come back to us to be reexamined. For example, the moon in August 2001 was at the same placement as the moon will be on August 3, 2020. Furthermore, the moon in August 2012 was just as similar.
There is an old saying in VPAT, if the degrees are the same or similar so too will be the circumstances, environment, and lessons to be learned. To analyze this hypothesis, it is important to look at the similarities to see if the conclusion is the same.
In August 2001, Robert Mueller was unanimously confirmed as the new FBI Director, now that he is no longer the director, and Wray is, could it be that we see a new FBI Director as more we hear about more investigations becoming clearer? President Bush also pushed for Embryonic Stem cell research right around the full moon (a typical Aquarius trait of Science), and the West Nile virus splattered the news from southern Florida to Arkansas.
While politics and health issues seemed to be problematic for the U.S in August of 2001, Tropical Storm Barry made landfall crossing the state of Florida, dropping 10 inches of rain and causing $40 million in damages. Like 2001, Tropical storm Isaias is due to make landfall today (Aug. 2) in Florida, as I write this blog. It is expected to move north on the eastern coast of the U.S by Monday or Tuesday, right around this full moon.
Moving forward to August of 2012, the little rover that made history by traveling to Mars and sending back vivid findings could be matched by another journey with a helicopter in August of 2020. While the cosmos was getting a visit from the rover, Mother Nature was showing her fury again in 2012 when 3 back-to-back tropical storms brought plenty of rain and winds. The first tropical storm was Florence, which was subsequently weakened to a depression. Second was Helene, causing flooding in Trinidad but turning into a depression by the time it reached Mexico. The last was Gordon, which brought heavy flooding. According to National Hurricane Center there are 10 tropical storms and 6 hurricanes predicted, and out of them at least 3 are anticipated to make landfall.
Similar to 2001, in the area of health, Ebola made headline news around the world, and today we COVID is the main topic of conversation. Each and every month of 2020, similarities are uncanny and perhaps it is the universe and the cosmos’ way of letting us know that something must give.
Full moon energies will begin at least 5 to 7 days before it occurs. In this case it could be as early as July 29, 2020, during which time things could become very powerful. There is no doubt that this energy creates a central haul, a sensitivity of extensiveness, and may help us to join substantially with others. The lot becomes fragile and more dominant under the light of the full moon – desire and pride can become quite extravagant, and there is more mindfulness and emphasis on relationships.
Since the sun is still in Leo and the moon enters Aquarius, both signs are in the areas of being creative and talking from the heart to the exciting. During any full moon your essence may be galvanized but do not react until you are undeniably certain. The mind will play tricks and later there may be a need to save grace and face.
As VPAT theories put placement of the moon behind the Western ideologies, the reference of determinations is already listed in the previous month. Primary placeholders that will be affected by this moon are in Aquarius and Capricorn.
For Capricorn, your predisposition is not listed below, instead, it is advised that you combine all three eclipses; Lunar eclipse and Solar eclipse in June and Lunar eclipse in July to get your best overall 6-month predisposition.
It is vital that all signs combine the solar eclipse and lunar eclipse predictions, along with Mercury retrograde, to get an overall 6-month projection for themselves.
Dear Aquarius, as this moon brings new beginnings for you, this could also mean that you must keep cool, calm, and collected for the remainder of the year. As you continue to be tough on yourself, this will mean that you must keep your energy level high. I would not be surprised if you have tension at your work which you may bring home. In addition, new work, career, or even projects are blooming for you as early as mid-September. There is plenty of financial stability heading your way, but you must be mindful of your spending. Romance will be awesome for you and I would not be surprised if wedding bells or at least a stable relationship is in the works for you. But even if you are not looking for a relationship, you may be very attractive to others in the fall and winter with plenty of support from your family.
Saturn: Mindfulness is necessary in regard to your finances; have a long-term back up plan. Travel and education will be very profitable for you. Stay focused and alert at work to secure your career. Make sure you eat well and take care as stomach or digestion issues are possible.
Rahu: (Now until Sept 24) Family issues are possible including interpersonal relationships; financial expenses on the rise. Emotional and physical stress is possible.
Rahu (In Taurus Sept 24) Mental stress and accidents are possible. Work related issues could also cause stressors and a possible forced move in your career may occur.
Ketu: (Now until Sept 24) Promotion, good reputation and purchase of a vehicle or home is possible. Marital life may go through hardship.
Ketu: (Scorpio, Sept 24) Difficulties at work is possible and may cause stress. You may have competition at the workplace or be forced to switch departments or locations.
Uranus (Retrograde 8/17/2020): Focus will be needed in areas of family and relationship. A new home may be possible. Analyze of your limitations will assist you in finding emancipation from areas where you feel restricted.
Chiron: Focus on self-care with compassionate and understanding communication skills. You may have plenty of deadlines and setting work priorities could very well assist in your movement forward.
Jupiter: Wishes could be granted and opportunities could bring financial stability. Your career will find stability soon.
Aquarius, you have no idea how much control you have now. The more mannered you are the more respect you will receive from people. Being direct is fine but being direct with vengeance is not ok. Be careful not to trust blindly. There may be times you find yourself becoming very melancholy. You may be offered the opportunity of a lifetime for yourself. Take care, however, those people who are jealous of you may not like your promotion or job change. Knee, digestive, ENT, and aches and pain are all possible.
The moon in Aquarius roots sensitive objectivity – an ability for neutrality concerning your own and others’ feelings. However, at the same time, Aquarius moon carries a logic of impartiality and multiplicity. There may be propensities to be an outsider looking in. Observing delicate circumstances sensibly and methodically may be the best thing to do.
Moods may come up randomly. The pressure in this moon will be to make a choice between what is more important, individual yearning or what is good for the soul and spirit. For expressive serenity, seek the company of friends who do not criticize.
The moon in Aquarius represents Insubordinate, Isolated, Comprehensible, Friendly, and Unpredictable. It is my suggestion for us to remain balanced. This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is also my suggestion that you purchase an orange candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil or sage oil and chant Psalm 51. Perhaps you may choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle.
Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, realizing the chosen values are dependent upon the wisdom of purpose. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy.
The mantra for Aquarius moon is:
“Om Shri Upendraya acchutaya namah”
(Om shri upend ra ya acc hutaya namah )
This mantra produces the quality of relationships within oneself and others.
The intention of this mantra is to smooth your path in life by helping you understand the lessons you have set for yourself and, through karma, the negativity will pass.
Wishing you the most pleasurable and safest journey through this full moon and I hope you are granted the positive light you desire.
Enjoy your summer and stay safe.
