So it’s a Full Moon in Aquarius tonight and I’m up at 2am madly updating my website – surprise, surprise! Aquarius is the ruler of all things technological after all… Full Moon’s have a tendency to make me a little manic so I’ll keep this one short. There’s a few different energies at play here and for me they’re creating one hectic, creative head space!
To begin with there’s the energy of the Full Moon in Aquarius itself. Here the polarity of Leo and Aquarius is stressed and there’s a tension between our egoistic desire to be the first, the best and the most popular, versus a tendency to downplay our own needs and desires for the good of the whole. As always, the trick is to find a balance.
At the same time Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, is just coming out of a square aspect with Mars, which has been pushing us to make changes and rebel against restraints, and into a trine with Mercury. Bring on the brilliant ideas! This is an aspect that will help you see things from a very different angle and may just generate some rather unusual solutions.
But retrograde Saturn is advising caution and with a square to Jupiter in Leo he’s putting the brakes on any ill-advised or reckless adventures we may be contemplating. Unfortunately he may pooh pooh even healthy expansive urges so watch out for negative self-talk over the next few weeks. Check out my article on Saturn Retrograde in Scorpio for the heads up on this transit.
Personally this Full Moon in Aquarius will bring an exact square of transiting Saturn to my natal Saturn in Leo. For me this means a welling up of all kinds of fears around personal exposure and being in the limelight. It’s a time for pushing through a lot of insecurity so that I can let my light really shine. Transiting Jupiter conjunct my natal Saturn will certainly help!
