August - Full Moon in Aquarius.

"An Awake Heart is like a Sky that Pours Light." Hafez

The full moon on August 18th is in the air sign of Aquarius. It is a potent one as we have for the first time in a while a significant Yod. 

(Yod is a rare astrological aspect that involves any three planets or points in the horoscope that form an isoceles triangle. This phenomenon occurs when two planets are sextile (60° aspect) to each other, and both are then quincunx (150° aspect) to a third.) 

Yods are often to referred to as the 'Finger of God' as around this time life can feel fated or our destiny is right up in front of us. This full moon will bring out our rebellious side allowing us to step into our own groove not worrying so much what others think. A Yod can signify a special karmic mission we are being called to complete in order for our soul to evolve.This is a potent and exciting time for changes to start manifesting in our lives. This Lunar eclipse  will not actually produce any shadow over the moon so is going to act more like a normal full moon lasting 14 days. Increased intuition and flashes of insight can lead to self-discovery and revelations that have escaped you up until now.

Come along and help smooth the process as the intensified energy of this full moon rise up so we can tap into it with wisdom and grounding.
