We start the month of August with a powerful Full Moon at 11°45′ of Aquarius, happening on August 3 at 11:58 AM EST.
The August Full Moon is also known as Sturgeon Moon. Her name comes from a prehistoric fish that was very common in the lakes of North America during this season: it was an integral component of Native American Tribes’ diet and survival. This fish was considered a symbol of abundance and a blessing: indigenous peoples used to perform rituals and ceremonies to honor the sturgeon and to celebrate this time of the year.
Any Full Moon represents completion and clarity: it is the time of the month when we reap the rewards of our efforts. We now see the blossoming and maturation of what we have been working on during the previous weeks. These days are a wonderful time to share the results of our work with others, to celebrate our success and growth, as well as to seek constructive feedback.
Moreover, Full Moons always offer us the opportunity to release what has been holding us back, and what we no longer need. They invite us to cleanse ourselves from unwanted energies, from everything that ran its course.
Aquarius: Unconventional and Unorthodox
The Full Moon in Aquarius is inspiring us to expand our vision and our hopes for the future, to dare to dream about something unconventional and unorthodox, something that has never been done before.
Aquarius is an innovative, inventive, ingenious Air sign, with a Fixed quality and Yang type of energy. It can probably be considered the least Fixed of all the Fixed archetypes: the element of Air is inherently volatile and flexible, versatile, and predisposed to change. Yet, Aquarius has the inherent capacity to focus on the task at hand and commit to a long-term goal.
Aquarius is the visionary, the genius, and the rebel. Ruled by Uranus, the planet of Revolution and unpredictable events, this sign is impossible to fit in one box. It is associated with progress and new technology, to interconnectedness and instant communication: for this reason, it rules the internet and social media.
It is not a coincidence that, as we are transitioning from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius, everyone is spending more time online, and more and more people will permanently work from home in the near future.
Full Moon in Aquarius: Innovative Ideas and Sudden Downloads
The Full Moon in Aquarius is highly intensifying our capacity for creative thinking and supporting our originality. If you manage to align with her energy, expect sudden, innovative ideas and downloads.
Aquarius correlates to the Higher Mind and the Akashic Records. The Akashic Records are the realms where all that has happened, is happening and will happen is stored. They can be considered a sort of database where all the information, memories, feelings, thoughts, conversations, and events that ever took place are stored and can be accessed.
The Akashic Records are encoded in a non-physical plane, a higher dimension that, with consistent practice and sincere devotion, can be accessed by everyone.
Because of its connection with the Akashic Records and the higher planes, Aquarius is the archetype correlated to those unexpected downloads, ideas, and visions of the future that seem to be coming out of the blue. These unforeseen insights help us know exactly what we need to do at a certain point in our lives, and they always arrive at the right time, with perfect synchronicity.
On this Full Moon, the Aquarian energy is particularly potent, as both the Sun in Leo and the Moon in Aquarius are forming a square to Uranus in Taurus, the planetary ruler of Aquarius. Connecting with the Akashic Records may be easier than usual during these days.

Full Moon in Aquarius: Cultivating Friendships & Fostering Communities
Aquarius is traditionally related to groups and communities. This sign inspires us to seek collaborations and exchange of opinions with people of like mind, to set up projects and agreements that everyone can benefit from.
People with strong Aquarian influence in their charts are original, open-minded, and creative. They live in the world of ideas, and they have big dreams and plans for the future, often unusual, always unpredictable. They value friendships and can interact with a wide variety of totally different people: they frequently have a huge network of contacts, especially over the internet.
Aquarius and Uranus break down the hierarchies and systems associated with Capricorn and Saturn. Their goal is to build communities where everybody is equal, has the same rights, the same power, the same duties, and responsibilities.
In a moment of history where most of us are forced to be physically distant, it becomes even more relevant to create a space where we can still come together as a group. Sharing our stories, our feelings, our challenges, as well as listening and supporting each other’s journey is a basic human need. The internet has the potential to be a great tool for that, and the Full Moon in Aquarius encourages us to use it wisely.
Venus conjunct the North Node: We are Supported
On the day of the Full Moon, we already feel the effect of the Venus North Node conjunction in Gemini, exact on August 5.
This aspect is likely to bring more harmony and balance in all our relationships, and we are going to benefit from its positive influence for the whole week. Venus conjunct the North Node in Gemini inspires us to share our ideas and opinions with others, to seek a variety of social interactions and exchanges, in order to expand our perspective and worldview.
Thanks to the beneficial influence of Venus on the North Node, relationships with other people are going to be an important source of inspiration and support during the upcoming week. The invitation is to listen to others from an open mind and don’t be stuck in our opinions or points of view: consider new possibilities, new ways to move forward.
Conflicts and misunderstandings are likely to be solved easily, and communication is supported during the current week. If you need to have difficult conversations with your loved ones, friends, or business partners, the days after the Full Moon represent a good time to do so.
Sun & Moon square Uranus: Unforeseen Events and Unexpected Surprises
On August 3, the Sun in Leo is exactly opposite the Moon in Aquarius, and they both square Uranus in Taurus, the planetary ruler of the Full Moon. The square between Sun, Moon, and Uranus creates a creative tension that, by making us uncomfortable, pushes us to find innovative solutions to the obstacles or problems we may be currently facing.
Uranus tends to shake up our reality and sometimes forces us to deal with the unexpected, to help us develop new perspectives and points of view we could not achieve otherwise.
To make the most out of its gifts, we need to be ready for sudden changes and surprises. Welcome whatever happens with open arms, even if you don’t understand immediately what its ultimate purpose and meaning is. When you look back, everything will make sense.
On the Full Moon day, we have other interesting aspects: Mars in Aries squares Jupiter in Capricorn, while Mercury in Cancer opposes Saturn in Capricorn. These transits keep emphasizing the conflict between the demands of the world and our instinctual desires and emotional needs. They highlight the importance of making a conscious effort to integrate more self-care and personal time in our everyday lives – a theme we have been working on since June.
Full Moon in Aquarius: Make your Own Rules
The Full Moon in Aquarius invites us to make our own rules and dare to follow our personal path, without worrying about what other people are doing, or what they may think of us. Aquarius inspires us to have faith in our vision without seeking anyone’s approval or validation.
Uranus is all about freedom, liberation from conditioning, and even rebellion. The planetary ruler of Aquarius urges us to stop trying to fit in, to stop trying to look normal.
Uranus gives us the courage to be ourselves fully, to embrace our uniqueness, and to embody all that we are without asking for permission. For this to be possible, we need to have a stable inner center: the Sun in Leo reminds us how crucial it is to develop self-confidence and a strong sense of who we are.
The planetary transits of the moment are inviting us to keep working on finding our real individuality. The Full Moon in Aquarius encourages us to experiment with different ways of self-expression and to connect with people who inspire us, motivate us, support us, and help us grow into who we truly are.
