The August 7th Full Moon eclipse in Aquarius is the focal point of a Boomerang Yod; Pluto and Neptune make inconjuncts to the Sun/Mars in Leo, which opposes the Aquarius Moon. Power, manipulation and confusion are funnelled into fiery Leo. The result can be discordant displays of power or (if handled properly) powerful achievements that have a higher purpose. This energy is released through the Aquarius Moon - results will go public, disrupt and liberate.
The Moon is assisted by a trine from Jupiter in Libra, making events bigger (and maybe better). The separating Jupiter/Pluto square adds a last gasp of fanaticism or superhuman effort.
