Welcome to August, Aquarius darling! Can you believe we’re already so deep into 2021? Me neither. But here we are and on August 8, the New Moon in Leo is going to make sure you are truly present. With the luminaries connecting in the area of your chart associated with serious relationships, you’re beginning to look at partnerships—both the external and internal experience of alignment—from a totally different point of view. I know you’re an abstract thinker, so let me put it this way: What does it mean to maintain independence and autonomy while still cultivating a meaningful, intimate connection with another person? Is it possible that you can become even more of yourself when you're with someone else?
Whether you’re championing for radical interpersonal change or finding the courage to have a powerful dialogue about your romantic expectations, remember that you’re not just a philosopher: You’re also a sensitive, empathetic, organic being who is fully and completely deserving of love (both getting and receiving). Under this sky, you’ll be guaranteed to make cataclysmic discoveries, so don’t be afraid to plant seeds for the future. With no Moon visible in the night sky, you’re working solely with starlight—long story short, Aquarius babe, this is a beautiful time to dream!
Whatever intentions are set during the New Moon in Leo will be fully realized just a few weeks later, when the Sun and Moon align again to form a shocking Full Moon in Aquarius on August 22. If this feels oddly familiar, it’s because this is the second Full Moon in Aquarius of the season (the first occurred last month, on July 23), making this lunation a powerful Blue Moon in your own sign. This is a big deal, darling! Now, with the Moon occupying your own domain (representing your emotions) and facing off with the Sun (symbolizing your external experiences), you’re ready to define “me” and “we” as distinctive concepts. Of course, you’re a freethinking Aquarius who hates rules, so you will never, ever compromise your eccentric, independent spirit for someone else—but hey, a little compromise never hurt anyone! Don’t forget, Aquarius, powerful associations (in friendship, romance, and even work) can open portals into new dimensions otherwise unavailable. And at the end of the day, you’ll go further faster when you collaborate. It’s time to sign on the dotted line!
Finally, just a few hours after the Full Moon, we begin a new astrological season when the Sun drifts into Virgo on August 22. For you, this will help anchor all your hard work; namely, how your choices impact others, and how you can integrate those decisions on an emotional level. Although the Sun is still high in the sky, Virgo season begins to shift the energy: The days are getting shorter, and you may find yourself becoming increasingly more introspective. What does it mean to go a little deeper into your psyche? Consider looking through old photos or diaries to jog your memory, recalling distant times with visceral sensory memories. You don’t need to dwell in the past, but it’s important to acknowledge how far you’ve come. After all, you’re one of the bravest signs in the entire zodiac! Receive yourself with compassionate curiosity: You are truly one-of-a-kind.
