The full moon is happening on August 11th, 2022 at 9:36 pm EST, in the sign of Aquarius. Not only is it a full moon, but it is also a supermoon! During supermoons, the moon appears brighter and closer than usual, and our emotions are also more amplified than during a regular full moon. You can expect to have heightened sensitivity during this full moon. Supermoons really shine a light on to our deepest, darkest secrets, and on to emotions that we’ve been repressing. If there’s been anything that we’ve been concealing, expect it to bubble up to the surface.
What do full moons represent?
Whereas the new moon is all about manifesting and planting seeds, full moons are a time to let go of things that no longer serve us. We practice forgiveness, release things into the ethers, and surrender them to the Universe.
Full moons are wonderful for reflecting on what is no longer working, and gives us a chance to release any attachments that we’ve been hesitant to break free from. Whether this is attachments to relationships, possessions, beliefs, or ideas, during this time, we are supported by the Universe in letting go of those attachments.
A bit about Aquarius
The Aquarius zodiac sign is all about connection. It’s an innovative, inspiring sign that is original and futuristic, and views things from a transpersonal level. It’s also a sign that is connected to healing, as it is the humanitarian, ruling the 11th house, which is about community, socialization, and dreams. Aquarius wants to awaken collective consciousness. It’s a visionary.
Aquarius is a fixed Air sign, which means that it is imaginative and communicative, as well as focused and persistent. It has a mental perseverance but on the shadow side, it can be socially detached and resistant to change.
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus in Western Astrology and by Saturn in Vedic Astrology. Uranus is the planet of spiritual awakenings. It brings radical change and enlightenment. Saturn is the planet of karma and teaches us lessons to help us progress on our life journey.
With the full moon being in Aquarius, we can expect the themes of change and transformation to come to the surface. This can be in relation to how we are connecting or communicating with others, as well as transformation in our own emotional growth and spiritual progression.
From a numerology perspective
August 11th, 2022 reduces down to the number 7. The number 7 is a pretty introspective and analytical number. It’s all about uncovering truths and getting to the heart of the matter. It is a number with intense spiritual energy, yet it’s also quite intellectual and great at investigating and researching. On the shadow side of number 7, the energy can be overly analytical, paranoid, and trapped in illusion.
3 Ways to Use the Energy of the Aquarius Full Moon
This full moon is the perfect time to retreat within and analyze your relationships with yourself and with others. You’re being supported to let go of anything that has been hindering your spiritual progression or draining your mental energy.
1. Reflect on relationships
Reflect on any relationships that have been holding you back from being your best self or your highest self. Have you found yourself feeling drained by certain relationships, or have you felt out of place in any of your groups or friend circles? If you’ve felt like the energy has been off or like your energy no longer resonates with certain people, this is a great time to release those relationships to make room for connections that are more supportive and aligned with who you are.
Sometimes we over invest in others and get little in return. If you recognize that there are relationships in your life that aren’t equally balanced or maybe are toxic, it is okay to let them go. Life is all about cycles and rhythms. Sometimes things are only for a season and that’s okay. Reflect on what you learned from the relationship and be confident in letting it go in order to come back into alignment with who you are and who you are becoming. Remember, the energy here is all about change, and in life, the only thing that is guaranteed is change.
2. Release habits hindering your spiritual growth
Have you been wanting to deepen your connection with the Universe or learn more about astrology, numerology, or any other metaphysical topic, but you’ve found that something has been getting in the way? During this time, analyze any habits that you have that are prohibiting your spiritual progression and gently release them. Commit to changing and letting go of those habits so that you can make time for your spiritual development. The keyword here is gently, because breaking a habit, especially one that we’ve had for a long time can be difficult. Give yourself grace as you work towards transcendence and entering the 5th dimension.
3. Embrace your uniqueness and individuality
Let go of the need to conform to societal norms, and embrace everything that makes you who you are. Aquarius is a rebel. It stands out and does not like to be confined. It enjoys the freedom to think for itself and to be different. Aquarius goes against what is expected. It’s and innovator and sees things from a different perspective, usually being one step ahead of everyone else.
If you’ve been hesitant to be original or have felt pressured to keep up with trends, relinquish that pressure and enjoy your individuality. Though we all come from one Creator, we are all unique in our own way. Though many of us have similar characteristics and traits, no one person is truly like anyone else.
During this full moon, release the desire to fit in, and embrace the beauty of standing out. Be original and authentic. Get in touch with your inner self and accept all parts of you with love.
