August 15, 2019 — The Aquarius Full Moon arrives on Thursday at 5:29am Pacific Time, directly opposite Venus in Leo. Love is a key theme, within our personal relationships, friend groups, and communities. With Mercury trining Chiron and square to Uranus, we’re having breakthroughs in our communication, learning to say what we feel with greater vulnerability. In particular, our inner masculine is evolving as we discover that feeling and expressing our emotions are not problems, but actually healthy ways to move through blockages, allowing for intimacy, respect, and deeper connection.

Meanwhile, we may feel restless, stressed, or in despair. Uranus, the planet of disruption and electricity, has just stationed retrograde on Sunday. As it squares Mercury today, we could find ourselves overwhelmed or using cutting words without caution. Our roads to deeper and healthier communication may be rocky at the moment, but we can trust that everything arising is here to break us out of our ruts and reprioritize our values. We’re finally remembering as a collective that authentic emotional expression is more important than being proper, stoic, or repressed. Being in our heart centers while caring for one another is our greatest moral barometer, which no church, government, institution, or political leaning can teach us.

These acts of un-repressing and following our intuition are part of an ongoing empowerment of the feminine. Venus, after all, rules the feminine, and she now falls in a significant position, conjunct the Sun in Leo, and opposite the Full Moon. Heart, creativity, and playful self-expression are permeating all of us as we acknowledge our desire to forge deeper bonds.

This is a beautiful time to create community. We’re looking at societal problems like loneliness and isolation, applying our ingenuity to work together and alleviate them more effectively—with compassion, honesty, and mutual respect. What better way to solve the problems of the world than to join forces, building from the ground up, rather than waiting for a savior?
