Reminder about tomorrow's eclipse...
The August 18th Full Moon Lunar eclipse hits 25 degrees Aquarius. There's some debate as to whether it's an actual eclipse or just a Full Moon. The Earth's shadow will brush up against the edge of the Moon, and will not be visible. Either way, it's going to be a culmination, perhaps a little less than a eclipse, but a little more than a regular Full Moon.
The big news is the Yod that's tied in with this lunation. The Aquarius Moon makes a sextile to Uranus Rx, at 24 degrees Aries. The Moon and Uranus make inconjuncts to Jupiter in Virgo, at 25 degrees. Uranus is the ruler of this eclipse/Full Moon, so the energy of liberation and surprise will be emphasized. Even though this is a culmination based on the past month or so, the results may be unexpected. Moon sextile Uranus is very supportive for a fresh breakaway. A clean break, perhaps. The Leo Sun's trine to Uranus feeds the fire of innovation and courage.
Whatever happens, there should be a sense of "I can do this!"
But that Yod to Jupiter. When it's the focal point, you can expect exaggerated reactions/endings. Jupiter will be your key - the task or reason or next step. In Virgo, we can assume something involving information, solutions, or improvements. And Jupiter will conjoin Mercury (at 23 degrees) so maybe a very educational conversation or announcement.
What you learn during this Full Moon will be instrumental in your next step to freedom. What you learn may surprise you.
The tension of the inconjuncts lie in the disconnect between practical Virgo and the freedom-seeking Moon/Uranus sextile. You may want to burn that bridge and jet off into the future. And this lunation certainly encourages a leap into the future. But that leap must be based on careful application of knowledge. There will be words of wisdom, or an understanding, that you'll need to ground yourself with.
The Uranus/Aquarian energy may be a bit much for some to handle. You could be left breathless, as understanding is wrenched wide open (Uranus delivers clarity via shock). Jupiter asks you to expand on what you already know, using this electric download. But do it carefully. If you're caught off guard, take a breath. Consider the facts. Your goal is to focus this eclipse's sparkling, volatile energy into something that makes sense.
