On Aug. 22nd, at 8:02am EDT, the Full Moon becomes exact. This is the second of two Full Moons in the Aquarius-Leo polarity within a 30-day period — and if you’ve ever wondered what a Blue Moon is… that’s exactly what we have here! If you are already a Member of my online community, you can click here to watch my video about this Blue Moon 😉

Two consecutive Moons in the same sign is particularly interesting because of the degree in which they become exact — usually an exalted degree — and the current Full Moon becomes exact in 29.5 degrees of Aquarius. This is indeed an exalted degree, because it is the last degree of the sign, and therefore the last chance for any transiting celestial body to express itself before changing signs.

This would indicate a strong urge to complete something — most likely something that started with the first Full Moon in 1.5º of Aquarius on July 23rd — and therefore is connected to social interactions, a desire for progress in connection to our vision for humanity, or our future in general.

The last time we had two consecutive Full Moons in the same sign was in the Spring of 2019, in Libra-Aries — and the last one in Aquarius-Leo was on July 22 & Aug. 20th, 2013 — and the one before that was way back in 2002, on July 24 & Aug. 22nd of that year, to be exact.

Ask yourself: What was important to me in the summers of 2013 and 2002? What of that is asking to be completed over the next two weeks? Where am I looking to transition to the next level?

With any Full Moon, we see things previously hidden, and get a chance to make some changes if we don’t like what we see. Given this, ask yourself: What keeps happening since July 23rd in my social networks or interactions? What needs adjusting? What needs outright change?

Something else that makes this Full Moon chart deeply unusual — even unique, in my experience — is six retrograde planets (bear in mind that there are only 9 planets that can even go retrograde)! So which ones are they? Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto — all are retrograde at the time of the Full Moon, which means that we have a chance to get more in tune with all of their energies.

Uranus, although retrograde after Aug. 19th, is still stationing/exalted until Sept. 2nd! (go to Aug. 5th – Weekly Forecasts for details, or watch the webinar: “Uranus in Taurus Exalted, August 2021”. I highly recommend this! Click here for more info or to purchase.).

When Retrograde, we access the energies of these 6 planets from…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in the following: 27-29 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, or 0-2 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this Full Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (since the Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer).
