The Full Moon takes place at 29°37′ of the Zodiac sign of Aquarius and affects all of us, but especially Leos, Scorpios, Aquarians, and Taurus Signs, who were born on the last two days of their Zodiac signs, but also those of you who have personal planets or angles of your horoscope near the degrees 27°-29° of the above Signs.

It also affects those of you who are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces of the first 2 days, or have personal planets or angles of your Horoscope at degrees 0° or 1° of the Mutable Signs, and mind you should be ready for twists and turns.

A Full Moon that culminates the crisis in relationships takes place on August 22, with the Sun in the sign of Leo and the Moon opposite in the sign of Aquarius.

It’s an August Moon filled with a change of direction, calling us to alter our way of dealing and adopting to changes and to revise our perceptions so that we can move forward.

At the same time, it is a moon which will significantly shake the sense of security for some of you as it brings upheavals, a moon which can bring definitive closures or endings, but which on the other hand can also bring renewal with new foundations being built out of the current ruins.

It is a full moon at 29° anaeretic degree which brings us in a final and definitive way face to face with the climax of the crisis.

But it is also a karmic lunation special for our evolution and I am going to explain why later on.


EVOLUTION means CHANGE, it means opening of consciousness and it means contact with the inner Truth of Relationships.

Truth that answers the questions:

  • What do we want from each other and from ourselves?
  • Where are the limits of freedom and where do conventions begin and end?
  • What are the boundaries between individual wants and relationship needs, and how do we move forward TOGETHER?

CHANGE IS symbolised by the Planet Uranus and it is a change that is brought about through the realization or not realizing what OUR TRUTH is. If we realize it, change comes in a pleasant way, if not… with judgment and unexpected crisis.


This Full Moon occurs with the Moon in the sign of Aquarius, the sign ruled by planet Uranus, and it occurs as Uranus has just turned retrograde, two days before the Full Moon.

It takes place with Uranus, irrevocably pushing the 14° and 15° degrees of the Fixed Zodiac Signs, uprooting any foundation of security and stability, and turning it upside down for Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.

This Moon is intense, as it occurs with Uranus almost stationary, throwing its subversive energy at any planet it touches, bringing crisis and conflict to interpersonal relationships. Relationships which are reaching a breaking point now and are being torn down from their foundations either to be rebuilt with a more solid foundation, or to be finished and us to move forward on our path of evolution.

Yes, this Full Moon in Aquarius will profoundly affect our relationships with significant others, as it occurs on the same Zodiac axis for the second time in a month. Issues in relationships that started to become apparent at the end of July are now coming to a head.

Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius Signs, as well as those of you who have personal planets, your Ascendant or Midheaven at 14°-15° degrees or 27°-29° degrees of the Fixed Signs, and those of you who are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces of the first 2 days or have your personal planets or angles of your horoscope at degrees 0° or 1° of the Mutable Signs, get ready for twists and turns.


This is a Full Moon that will come full circle, bringing either radical restructuring or a final rupture, as it will illuminate issues that have to do with the LEO – AQUARIUS polarity and the planet URANUS having turned retrograde.

A full moon which invites you to combine the polar qualities of Leo and Aquarius in the most positive way to move forward.

Follow your heart, overcome psychological blocks created either by fear of commitment or fear of upending your security.

To see clearly who and what you are and what the purpose and essence of your existence is. Yours and your Other Half’s, and how your relationship can lead you towards that purpose.

Look back to move forward, and think about what you can welcome into your life and what you want so that you can feel true freedom.

Get away from cold rationalization and listen to your heart. Bring emotion and reason into the center.

Understand the consequences of inaction and that things get worse the longer you choose to ignore a problem.


Jupiter conjunct the Moon brings hypersensitivity and dulls feelings of awkwardness. Opposite the Sun it can bring frivolous or even immature reactions.

Get away from it. Take your risks, assert what is important express your feelings. Dare with your heart and not your mind.

Mercury and Mars are conjunct in the Virgo sign at this Full Moon and in an excellent trine with Uranus in Taurus.

Make decisions and take action!

We have free will and every day, every decision we make is important and wanting and acting based on our true self is a fundamental characteristic of Leo.  Combine this with shared goals shared dreams, a common path and reconciliation with your other half and half the work is already done.

Let go of selfishness (Leo) and reactivity (Aquarius) and find the happy medium.

In the centre where the heart doesn’t listen to negative convictions and love is the strongest conviction of all!



In the chart of this difficult Full Moon, a beautiful and surprisingly helpful kite formation is formed involving Venus in Libra, Saturn in Aquarius, North Node in Gemini, and South Node in Sagittarius.

It is clearly an evolutionary formation, that tells us that we have the ability to incorporate the karmic lessons that this Full Moon brings to interpersonal relationships and to rebuild trust, communication, and a sense of respect in our relationships, resulting in loyalty and commitment.

It is here where the intense karmic nature of this Full Moon lies, coupled with the fact that it occurs in the anaeretic degree of the fixed Signs

Those of you who have personal planets or angles in your horoscope, at the degrees 7° or 8° of the Air Signs or the Fire Signs, you are called by the Universe to overcome in the best way possible any pressures or even crisis in your relationships and move forward.

Something tells me that you will succeed…

Yes, this is a difficult Full Moon combined with the retrograde of the planet Uranus, but I hope and wish for all of you that it brings insights and realizations that will ONLY lead to positive renewal.

Happy Full Moon to all of you!
