Second Full Moon In Aquarius

The Aquarian Curriculum

On August 22nd, a second Full Moon blooms in Aquarius. The first Aquarian Full Moon took place just after the Sun moved into Leo, illuminating the hard work of digging below the surface while remaining playfully engaged with life. Now this Full Moon culminates what began at the New Moon of August 8th, when an evolutionary gateway opened, waking us up to the power of the present moment. Notice what comes into sharp focus at this time.

The Intersection Of The Heart And Mind

In the simplest of terms, Leo refers to an open heart, Aquarius to an inventive mind. It highlights the division between personal expression and group consciousness. Our task is to reckon with ourselves both as individuals and as members of the human tribe. When aligned, individual creative expression naturally contributes to the needs of the collective.

Hone In On The Truth

As a whole, we are all in the midst of receiving major Aquarius lessons. Aquarius teaches us to hone in on the truth and raise our eyes toward higher intent and purpose. Under an Aquarian Moon, we feel pressure to rebel, to strike out on an innovative path, and to form new networks. As things change rapidly around us, we must decide what to repair, what to eliminate, and what new structures to build.
