FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS @29° 💫 CONJUCT JUPITER SUNDAY 22 AUG 2205 AEST
Today’s full moon is the 2nd Aquarian full moon in a row, making it a blue moon. Our previous full moon was in the early degrees of Aquarius and in aspect to restrictive Saturn, making it a harsher lunation. Today’s lunation is conjunct an optimistic and uplifting Jupiter, creating an all-together different experience.
A full moon conjunct Jupiter is a thing of beauty and a wonderfully uplifting aspect. It allows us to see/appreciate the things we DO have in these extremely trying times. Along with creating an-air of optimism and opportunity to expand ourselves, to raise our spirits, helping to find moments of joyousness in uncertain times.
2021 is hard, things are changing, and we are adapting, today’s lunation is a lovely moment in time to embrace theses changes and look for the opportunity to grow within these new parameters or limitations imposed by saturnian figures or situations.
We also have today; the Sun is in its last degree of Leo, finishing up its yearly transit in the sign it rules. Venus is now in Libra, another planet back home in its ruling sign; finally, Mercury is also strongly placed in Virgo also its ruling sign. We have some lovely planetary support at this full moon, making a dynamic skyscape.
Despite all the setbacks, the challenges, the restrictions; today is a wonderful opportunity to settle in and bask in the wonder, the opportunities and the lessons that have gotten us to THIS point in time. Having so many planets in rulership now is the time to bask in their glory and graces before we duck dive into the tail end of 2021 and it’s Astrological landscapes.
The astrological landscape of May 2021, offers up some friendly sky’s for the first three weeks of May. The much heralded transit of Jupiter into Pisces begins, showing us the direction of 2022’s astrological highlight might present to take us, with its 2 month preview this May – July. Venus back in her home sign of Taurus for the first 9 days of May warms this space, before she hands over to Jupiters ingress to Pisces, middle of the month. The eclipse season begins at month’s end. Eclipse season is pushing for both innovation in the Gemini sector of your chart, whilst encouraging release and a letting go of the Sagittarius sector of your chart. The themes of these houses and signs best indicates how this might work for you, in your chart.. If you have planets in these signs, then this process of accumulation and detoxification is greater.

The New Moon in Aquarius will be one unlike any other, thanks to 6 of the 7 inner planets being in Aquarius at this lunation, creating a huge Aquarian stellium or line-up. This is rare and last occurred 59 years ago; feeding an extraordinary amount of planetary energy into the Aquarian sector of your chart/life.
Aquarius, the water bearer is the provider and the support system, which is always working towards a point of wholeness or completion. It is perhaps at this new moon; we can look to the Aquarian aspects of our lives with the intent to bring more support and structure into what we strive to complete or bring wholeness around these topics of life.
Aquarian’s are individual within the collective, they hold their individuality and uniqueness, within the space of others; they are able to be themselves, whilst assisting others to help create community, it might just not be in the most traditional of ways. This new moon creates strong opportunity to workshop new pathways to evolve and sets up a deep incubation phase, of the Aquarian qualities of above and bringing them to life.
Venus and Jupiter conjoin at 12 °at this new moon, helping to harmonise the blending of big visions, optimism, new lessons and teachings, combined with attractive connection to those who you really vibe with. Jupiter fresh from his cazimi, helps to energize Venus, as she finishes her current cycle. Having the two benefic’s in-aspect at this lunation is a good thing, bringing in a more positive and optimistic flavour.
Mercury, still currently retrograde in Aquarius offers the benefit of reflection and insights. It’s only through looking back or re-looking at ourselves; we are able to know more clearly what we do or don’t seek. It also helps us see how we have progressed. Mercury still traveling through these back-water roads, offers introspection and reflection, as the Moon itself is at its darkest, helping to deepen the unseen or seeding of the experience.
Finally, Saturn, the ruler of this lunation will be what remains after all these planets leave Aquarius and will hold to account; asking that you keep the contracts that you make at this time. Saturn will be making sure you keep promises or contracts, once all the benefits are optimism is gone. This will be key to your success. Saturn prefers a more striped back and simple plan, one that can be stuck to! The good news is that Saturn works well in Aquarius, so it is creating a supportive and strong foundational base for these new explorations and developments.
