FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS - AUGUST 22, 2021


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.

FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS – AUGUST 22, 2021

By astrologer, Andrew Ifandis

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!


 

THE KARMIC KITE

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!

NEW MOON IN LEO 31 JULY 2019

NEW MOON IN LEO 31 JULY 2019: A Love Play In Three Acts – Act One

NEW MOON IN LEO 31 JULY 2019


The New Moon takes place at 08°36’ of the Sign of Leo. It mainly has an effect for Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Taurus persons, and also for Aries and Sagittarius persons, who are born in the first decan, as well as for those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 06° – 10° degrees of the Signs mentioned.


A LOVE PLAY IN THREE ACTS

The New Moon in Leo takes place on the night of the 31st of July and it is a shining New Moon filled with the unexpected.

The curtain lifts. Spotlights on! This New Moon sets the stage and the introduction to the characters. This is the first act, of a three-act love play that will go on throughout August.


Until the end of the month three successive lunations,

with this New Moon being the first, will prompt action for us,

to be both the actors and the viewers, of the greatest story of all.

 

That, between  a Man and  a Woman.


Three moons, each one with its playfulness and drama, each one more erotic than the previous, as Venus, Mars and the Lights are coming closer and closer, and opposite, and closer once more.

The play begins…

 

Act One – NEW MOON IN LEO

Every time the Moon meets the Sun as it circles around the sky a seed is sown. Intuition, memory, needs and subconscious desires are symbolized by the moon. The conscious, the expressive self, the spirit, our cause and our very existence, are symbolized by the Sun.

The moment these two meet, a merge of the archetypal energies is taking place. In a sense the two become one. They become whole in a union of the male and female energy.

That is why the seed is sown.

 

All New Moons in Leo merge creativity with generosity, courtship with leadership, and the regal with the childlike. Yes we are confident and sure of ourselves, creativity spikes and it is our time to shine.

With this particular New Moon in Leo this merging takes place at 08°36’ of the Sign. Time for new beginnings, creation and self expression.

On the scene come two actors.

The first is Venus in Leo that closely conjuncts the two Lights. Brings on the themes of romantic love, flirting, socializing, and us feeling beautiful, not just beautiful but the most beautiful!  Expression is amorous with a flair for the dramatic. The need is that we are liked by others. The emotions are gentle and passionate at the same time. Venus is a starlet that wants to be the center of attention when it comes to love and relationship issues.

The second is Uranus. Upon entering the gong is heard. Abrupt and sudden is its entrance, breaking the viewer’s concentration. Uranus the game changer, the great awakener, is in a square aspect to Venus and to the Sun and the Moon.

Uranus energy is electric, its square to the Sun makes us impulsive, restless and tense.

Its square to the Moon stirs uncertainty, feelings of anxiety and emotional tension.

Uranus square Venus. The starlet wants constant attention but it will not be easy to have it yet… Our play starts with a love that comes unexpectedly out of the blue, or with a sudden break in existing relationships. Or with both, one after the other…

Under the uncertainty and the tension, new affairs that start may end abruptly. Summer love or just sex may come but will be short lived. Existing relationships may undergo separations that may be temporary. That is the nature of the planet Uranus, unpredictable.

NEW MOON IN LEO 31 JULY 2019

Mercury is stationary ready to go direct in the Sign of Cancer. This may lead to second thoughts, whether our emotional security is worth to be protected and not shaken by the new.

Mercury is opposite Pluto an aspect that brings a nearly obsessive re-examination of the situation. If we are single we ponder on the depth of our and the other person’s feelings, or we may fixate on the object of desire. If we are in a relationship we examine its worth and weigh the possibility of the separation.

Mars is still in a trine to Jupiter, though the aspect is separating, and Jupiter is trine to the Sun and the Moon.

What that means is that however frivolous, or eccentric, or unconventional, any new affair may be, we can still have fun since the libido remains high. Even if it is stopped suddenly, its post- feeling will be that of joy.

In the second scenario, that of relationship tension, breaks and our need to break free, the Jupiter aspects means that there is always a way to “sort it all out”… through humor, and some good mood.

This New Moon starts the month with a disruption of the normal and the element of surprise regarding our relationships and love life. It of course also affects partnerships, as well as financials bringing sudden expenses.

Beware, the Leo glamour and life style does not come cheap and everything the starlet wants costs money. Do not indulge yourselves with too much sun, fun and…. put the word you, yourselves here.

What is important to have in mind, is that this New Moon in Leo is a promise for something.

Something that the we the audience wait to happen, but we shall have to wait till the end of the month, when the New Moon in Virgo will take place, so as to see the last act of the play and how everything will come to a resolving finale.

 

Until then, I wish a joyful summer to all!

The eclipse at a cosmic level

The Total Lunar Eclipse takes place on January 20 or 21, 2019, depending on where on the world we are.

In the archetypal conflict that this lunar eclipse represents, expressed by the position of the Sun in Aquarius in opposition to the Moon in Leo, two more astrological factors are added.

The first is that the axis of the eclipse is in the signs of Capricorn and Cancer and the second that the planet Uranus is in a square aspect to the two Lights, a basic and defining aspect as we have already said in our analysis of the influence of this eclipse on an individual level.

All the sparkling electricity, and the revolutionary or subversive action of the planet Uranus, that is now moving direct, is beginning to find a way out, and this fact shows us emphatically that at the cosmic level we will see protests and uproars in the coming months.

 

The two January eclipses combined.

If we combine the above factors, the intensity of this eclipse at a cosmic level results from a conflict between leadership (Leo) and political bodies or collective movements (Aquarius), since important for the general development (Nodal Axis), is how power is exerted (Capricorn) in relation to issues of homeland, nationality and tradition (Cancer).

This Lunar eclipse signifies the impact of the situations that began with the Solar Eclipse that preceded it. Thus, these two eclipses in combination can mean:

The way power is handled by technocratic and logistic structures, and the empowerment of oppression and control (Capricorn), cause immediate and rapid awareness in the masses.

Awareness associated with how governments exert their power (Solar Eclipse in Capricorn) are now causing a crisis between leaders (Leo Moon) and collective or political bodies (Sun in Aquarius)

or

Challenge the pride of the People (Moon in Leo) who reacts (Sun in Aquarius), joining the individual action with the collective process.

These awareness culminate emotionally, and within a short time they bring fights or protest that relate both to the sense of security and to issues of homeland (Cancer).

Lunar Eclipse in Leo 21 January

 

Cosmic Level – Anatomy of the Aspects

The square of Sun to Uranus shakes the dull everyday life, brings a reaction towards figures of power, and creates a break with everything that wants to patronize our individual expression in the name of the common goal. It is the eccentric autonomy that does not want boundaries and limitations. It is the rebellious ego within us.

The square of Moon to Uranus is the outbreak of the tension. The anxiety and the agitation that cumulatively burst with an excitement of electrical tension. Upheaval in our family and home life.

The square of Mercury to Uranus is unexpected news, nerves and cerebral tension. Commotion in transportation and reversals of plans. Sudden events related to media.

The square of Uranus with the Moon’s Nodes brings the energy of the planet into the heart of the events and gives its strong stigma for the following period with collective reactions.

The square of Mars to Saturn, in an almost precise aspect, is conflict with law, discipline, prevention, fatigue, limited action, anger, and conflict.

Vision of the days to come

It is obvious that the Total Lunar Eclipse of January hides pressure and eruptive events that we will soon see develop. Examples are the latest political developments in Greece and reactions in France and England (Brexit), dealing with national issues and the exercise of power.

The Total Lunar Eclipse is fully visible in all its phases (penumbral, partial, total) from all the countries in North and South America, from the United Kingdom, Portugal, Norway and Sweden.

It is also visible in the phases of partial and total eclipse, from the rest of Europe and from Northwest Africa.

In the above regions it is that we shall witness the events that the eclipse brings.

Coming Full Circle

The Total Lunar Eclipse on January 21, 2019 brings down the curtain of the eclipses on the Leo – Aquarius axis.

It takes place at 0° 51′ degrees of Leo and completes a long series of eclipses happening on the above axis. Eclipses, that since February 2017, and combined with planet Uranus entering in the Sign of Taurus, have signaled significant, difficult or in some cases even painful changes for several of the Signs of the Fixed Cross.

This blood moon eclipse that once again activates the first degrees of the Fixed Signs, something that last summer has created tensions with:

  • Either sudden break-ups,
  • Or considerations to ending our relationship, that eventually were dismissed in an attempt to renew it, despite the emotional suffocation,
  • Or separations that seemed to be definitive.

All of the above are also true for partnerships and professional or other close personal relationships.

Now the circle closes and this eclipse marks for the Signs of the Fixed Cross, and even more for those in the degrees I mention in the introduction, definitive outcomes, since any turns and changes will have been completed by mid-April at the latest.

 

The Theme of the Eclipse – Individual Level

 

This eclipse follows the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn that took place two weeks ago, and as such it represents our emotional climax and response to the awareness that then started, and to the demands that are now beginning to appear.

With the Sun in the Sign of Aquarius and the Moon in the Sign of Leo, the eclipse brings to the fore situations that on the personal level relate to ourselves being part of a wider whole on one hand, and to our need for self-expression on the other.

With the Moon being close to the North Node in the Leo Sign, this eclipse invites us to leave behind detached or intellectual behaviors, that do not help us in important relationships and partnerships, and urges us to function by showing more passion and more emotion.

It is an eclipse that invites us to harmonize and work with others, but that also gives us the necessary space for creation.


Persons, relationships, and situations that do not help our self-expression will be left behind so that we can move forward with those who accept our healthy expression of who we are and who also give us their acceptance and their love.

 

This will of course not be easy.

Lunar Eclipse in Leo 21 January

 

In the archetypal conflict expressed by the position of the Sun in Aquarius and the Moon in Leo, the astrological factor added is the planet Uranus that makes a square aspect with the two Lights.

It is an eclipse that brings electrifying tension.

 

“Feelings have a bad knack. They burst suddenly. When you least expect it.”

Anton Chekhov

 

This phrase from the theatrical play “Uncle Vanya”, of the great Russian playwright, describes in the best way the energy of this very strong eclipse.

That is exactly how the situations will be finalized. That is how space will be made for us to go forward.

With sudden outbursts of emotions or reactions.

 

This is how we’ll be lead to definitive separations or, in some cases, to definitive reunions.

In so sudden a way we will become aware of who we are, who we are together with, and how we will move forward.

 


But the chart of the eclipse is not only tension.

It has the wonderful conjunction of Venus with Jupiter which finds both planets together in a trine aspect to Mars. An aspect of popularity that brings new acquaintances, love opportunities and favors action towards new collaborations.

This conjunction also forms a square aspect to Neptune, so our attention is needed, as we are permanently done with the past, to properly evaluate the new, and not make the mistake of having unrealistic expectations or coloring it with pink glasses.

So, on a personal level, this difficult eclipse may initially bring uncertainty and insecurity, but let us remember that with self-control, adaptability and acceptance of change, we will be able to manage the new situations and exploit the opportunities it will create for us.

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE – 11 AUGUST 2018

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE – 11 AUGUST 2018: Long Hot Summer – Part Three

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE - 11 AUGUST 2018This summer is marked by three eclipses and many planets being retrograde during the eclipse season. The combination of these astrological factors is something that is relatively rare and it shapes an unpredictable, dynamic and hot landscape.


This eclipse is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Fixed Cross (Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, and Scorpio) and who are born between August 9 – 13, November 9 – 13, February 5 – 9 and May 7 – 11.  Also to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 16° – 20° degrees of these Signs.


PERSONAL ECLIPSE READING

 

Long Hot Summer – Part Three

The Solar Eclipse of August 11th is the final of the three eclipses of this long, hot summer’s eclipse season. It occurs in the Sign of Leo and succeeds the Solar Eclipse in Cancer and the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius.

This eclipse functions as the aftermath of the highly dynamic period that preceded it. In a sense, it is a new beginning that follows after the realizations and the emotional peaks that we have experienced under the influence of the previous eclipses. Two powerful eclipses that have raised the volume both on personal and mundane level.

The first eclipse challenged our sense of security (Solar Eclipse in Cancer) and made us aware of power plays and pressures at home or in relationships.

The second eclipse, in its mundane expression, has resulted in unpredictable collective drama (Mars retrograde square Uranus and conjunct the South Node in Aquarius). With Mars, the planet of fire, dominant in this second and most difficult eclipse, we have unfortunately witnessed a July that was marked by wild forest fires, high temperatures that made new records and deadly heatwaves, across the globe.

The personal drama (Leo) has been brought into the collective (Aquarius) and the repercussions create political and collective re-action (Mars Retrograde in Aquarius) and re- thinking (Mercury Retrograde).

On a personal level, for many of us this second eclipse was realizations made and most possibly emotional outbursts that we were not able to control.

Now with this third eclipse, that is a New Moon, we will be pushed to make a re-start.

 

Potential to moving forward


LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE - 11 AUGUST 2018

The Solar Eclipse on the 11th of August takes place in Leo and is conjunct the North Node.

This is an aspect that has the potential of bringing intuitive awareness that will move us forward.

In the creative sign of Leo, this aspect with the North Node can work its best provided that we tune into our most noble and self-expressive qualities, detached from ego twists, and conceited mannerisms.


On the personal level we can work relationships with magnanimity and courtesy and bring about closure of past issues or crises which manifested under the influence of the previous Solar Eclipse.

On a mundane level, recent events make it all the more obvious that strong leadership qualities (Leo) and innovative coaching (Uranus ruling Aquarius) is needed in all forms of social and political interactions (Mars in Aquarius). Decisions and solutions are paramount. The times seem to be critical and the repercussions of this summer will be felt in the coming years.

However, both our personal adjustment as well as the integration of the eclipse’s energy into the social collective is a slow process.

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE - 11 AUGUST 2018

Mercury squares Jupiter

The major aspect of the eclipse is the square of  the retrograde Mercury in Leo to planet Jupiter in Scorpio. This is an aspect that may express with exaggerations in communication, misjudgments and information overload.

On a personal level we have to be aware not to be obsessed or over passionate in debates and talks, to stay focused and to avoid misunderstandings.

On a mundane level it is a period that can lead to risky or misinformed decisions in senior ranks and to high volatility in stock exchanges.

 

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE - 11 AUGUST 2018

 

The retrograde planets are dancing

Uranus has turned retrograde just four days prior to the eclipse and will continue to move backwards in apparent motion as seen from the Earth until January the 6th 2019 when it will reach 28° of Aries.

This is something very important because Uranus becomes the sixth consecutive planet that turns retrograde adding to the retro feeling of this summer.


The process of creating something out of this eclipses’ energy is slow.

Something new will come to be ONLY AFTER we have done our work with each and every one of the retrograde planets.

ONLY AFTER we have redefined where we stand.


With Uranus retrograde we have to look at things from a fresh perspective and re-define our personal truths. To embrace the new we have first to understand what holds us back whether this be a person, a job or ideas that no longer serve us.

Uranus retrograde process to shape our personal truth works very well with Neptune being retrograde also, because Neptune retrograde helps us to see with clarity and without idealizations. BUT in order to do so we have to first get rid of our personal delusions.

Saturn is also retrograde and we need to redefine our limits and to learn well the evolutionary or karmic lessons that it poses.

Pluto continues to be retrograde and the excavation of our soul is well underway. Pluto’s retrograde period is usually felt as a psychological process that seeks regeneration, purification and results in a healthy urge for survival.

Mars is retrograde and in a high energy state being out-of-bounds during all the eclipses, with his out-of-bounds movement peaking between 14th August and 19th of August, when Mars will reach an astounding declination of 26°29’ South of the ecliptic. Delays and frustration, anger management and redefining of actions is needed.

Mercury is retrograde since the previous eclipse in Aquarius and is also a key player in this eclipse since it is conjunct the two lights. How to form our personal truth and understand our best course of action when Mercury complicates things?

How will to reach to conclusions and make decisions or find solutions within this slow-moving bog of retrograde energy?

 

Uranus links this eclipse to the next one!

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE - 11 AUGUST 2018

We astrologers see the big picture and understand the cycles.

Uranus has a major role in this summer eclipses, being in a square with Mars and making a 3 degree orb T-square with all the three eclipses Nodal Axis.

Uranus is the last planet in this dance of the retrogrades and its liberating energy will not be felt until it is direct again.

When it is that?

January the 6th 2019,

the very same day that the next eclipse occurs!

It is then, that this cycle of awakening will come to fruition with ideas, insights, liberating energy and manifestation of truth.

Additionally important to the fact that Uranus turns direct on the same day with the next eclipse, is the fact that the planet will once more tightly square the Nodal Axis of both of the winter eclipses .

It is as if these summer eclipses prepare us. They give us lessons and demand us to work with the retrograde planets so as we can be ready for the real changes (Uranus) that are about to come.


That is why this Solar Eclipse in Leo is pivotal.

Because it plays out as the last dress rehearsal with all of us the actors absorbing the script to its last detail prior to coming forth on the scene.


 

A trine aspect reaches its precision with this eclipse

Saturn in Capricorn, has been in an applying trine to Uranus in Taurus throughout the last weeks, and this aspect, with its liberating and grounding energy, comes to a precision of 0° 31’ in this last eclipse of the summer period.

This is the most helpful of all the aspects, since it allows us to manage the changes and the sudden events that resulted from the eclipses, in a responsible manner.

It gives a relative stability within the slow and demanding landscape.

 

A second trine aspect reaches its precision with this eclipse

Jupiter in Scorpio is trine to Neptune in Pisces, an aspect that gradually comes to a very close precision with this last eclipse, culminating on August the 19th.

This is a most benevolent aspect. A divide gift of hope and compassion. It is an aspect that can work as a “Deus ex Machina”, saving us at the last moment, granting hope, bringing gifts, spiritual awareness and increased Faith.

 

Sun drenched days are here again

This is the last eclipse of this long, hot summer and demands introspective work and re-evaluation to all areas pertaining to the retrograde planets.

Its energy is pivotal and has repercussions.

In the short-term, the Solar Eclipse in Leo of the 11th of August is slowly but firmly pushing us out of the bog and slowly builds on hope and a positive vision.

More importantly, it is a critical eclipse. It has a long-term effect and it prepares and grounds us for the shifting changes of the winter eclipses that hold a Uranian promise.

 

I wish you all ,to enjoy the last days of the summer drenched in Sun,

and the best to come,  from the marvelous Jupiter trine Neptune aspect.
