Full Moon in Aquarius

August Full Moon in Aquarius

THEME: Tapping into the collective frequency

What is a Full Moon?

A full moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are opposite each other and we see the full illuminated surface of the Moon in the sky. The Full Moon is not only shining a light on the planet but in the deepest corners of our own lives.

Full Moon’s can be an emotional time as things that were once hidden come to the surface. This is also a time when many people are more sensitive than usual or even more susceptible to the energy of the Moon generating unusual behaviours.

The Full Moon in the cycle represents a time of completion and I recommend your focus is now applied to completing projects you’ve already started and tying up loose ends. This is also a brilliant time to look back and celebrate how far you have come.

The next phase we enter into is the Disseminating (Waning Gibbous) Moon which is 3.5 days after the Full Moon and this is when we release and let go. Now you may currently practice releasing on a Full Moon, and if this works for you then that’s great however I follow the traditional practice of witches.

Full Moon in Aquarius Energetic Theme

The Full Moon is about completion, forgiveness and gratitude and the specific energies of the Aquarius Full Moon are asking us to reflect on our inter-connectedness, the impact we have on the collective frequency and how we can continue to raise our vibration which then in turn raises the vibration of the world.

What does it mean when the Full Moon is in Aquarius?

The full moon is a time to celebrate. Now is a good time for completion of tasks, to harvest the seeds you planted at the new moon, to embrace the abundance that has come your way and to show your gratitude.

Aquarius allows us to embrace the rebel inside us. It might leave you feeling like you want to break free or end that monotonous feeling you’ve found yourself feeling. Join a group, do something new, take the risk, make the leap. Now is the time to let that rebel out.

Inspiration and Guidance for this Full Moon

I like to connect to the guidance of some of my favourite authors during the lunar cycle. Here are a collection of quotes to support this Full Moon in Aquarius.

Old Sayings and Lore

An old English Harvest Moon ritual was to gather a key, a ring, a flower, a sprig of willow, a small piece of cake, a crust of bread, 10 of clubs, 9 of hearts, ace of spades, and ace of diamonds. Wrap these in a handkerchief and place it under your pillow. Say upon going to bed:

Luna every woman’s friend, To me thy goodness condescend, Let me this night in visions see, Emblems of my destiny

If you dream of storms, it means coming trouble; if the storms end, a calm fate after strife. If you dream of a ring or the ace of diamonds, marriage. Bread, a good job. Cake, prosperity. Flowers, joy. Willow, treachery in love. Spades, death. Clubs living in a foreign land. Diamonds, money. Keys, great power. Birds, many children. And geese, more than one marriage.

When the Moon is in Aquarius

Aquarius is about social connection and heightened communication. When the moon travels through this high frequency sign, you might find yourself a bit frazzled……..work wise, Aquarius favours all things technological, such as building or improving your website, sending out mailings or resumes, researching new careers, and putting together a cutting edge team.

Moon Power – Simone Butler

Full Moon

This is a good time to try out forms of divination’s such as scrying or tarot. Reflect about your goals, feelings and matters that have to do with relationship and family. It is also good for transformations, psychic abilities, strength, love, power and fertility

Moon Magick – Rachel Patterson

Full Moon in Aquarius

This Full Moon is especially good for Aries, Geminis, Leos, Librans, Sagittarians and Aquarians, but more challenging for everyone else. The energy is ushering in change and progress. It’s time to detach and let go. Find balance between trying to be all things to all people vs having real relationships.

Moonology – Yasmin Boland

Full Moon Magick

This time is used to banish unwanted influences in your life. It’s also ideal for creating protection magic, performing divination, setting up plan and releasing old patterns or issues. Full Moon magick can be conjured during the three days before the rise of the full moon, the night of the full moon and during the three days afterwards.

Hi, I’m Sarah Cornforth and I'm a Creatrix of Magick.  I have never really considered myself creative or artistic as I'm too much of a perfectionist for that and I still find it hard to accept the word ‘artist’ as a title for myself. Initially creating art was a way of coping with the curveballs of life. When I draw, or paint or craft I feel calmer, my mind slows down to a pace I can cope with and life becomes easier. I also love working closely with the phases of the moon and the cycles of nature in everything I do as the benefits are huge. At the end of 2017 a dear friend nudged me in the direction of creating art to sell, and if it had been anyone else who encouraged me I would have thought they were mad. But this particular friend has a special gift. She can see the life purpose of others. So I listened and I took every piece of advice she had to give me.....and here I am, creating art, working with the Moon, teaching people how to heal through Mandala art, feeling happy and sharing what I love with the world. Thank you for joining me on this journey.
