Strange Machinery, Part 2: Full Moon in Aquarius

Yesterday I wrote about the discordant blend of energies leading up to the Full Moon. Today, I'll look at what comes next.

August 10th will feature a Full Moon at 18 degrees Aquarius. All the aspects from August 8th and 9th will be featured during this Moon. Mercury (at 20 degrees Leo) will be separating from a conjunction with the Sun, and both will be trining Uranus Rx (ruler of the Full Moon) in Aries. Saturn in Scorpio will be squaring the Moon, and Chiron Rx in Pisces will inconjunct the Sun and Mercury.

Everything I wrote about in yesterday's post will culminate on this Full Moon. It will be a definitive shove that cranks the aspects into high gear. Or, these aspects are the awkward mechanisms driving a machine that accelerates abruptly.

Aquarius is the sign of clarity and sudden change. This Moon will feel abrupt, because the clarity it brings will be the camera flash that exposes the limits (Saturn) and sore spots (Chiron) you'll have to deal with. This doesn't mean it will be negative, but it won't be a smooth release. Major change usually leaves some bruises.

Overall, I see this Moon as positive. It's the information/conversation/idea whose time has come. Since it's a culmination, you may already have a sense of what it will involve. Even if the result is abrupt, it will be built on something that's brewing now.

If you have natal/progressed planets, angles or Nodes from 14 to 20 degrees of the Fixed signs, you'll feel this Moon most strongly. 14 to 20 degrees of any of the other signs will feel it as well, but not as intensely.
