Once, Or At the Most Twice, in a Blue Moon

August has us wondering if we’ll ever feel a sense of proper proportion around our needs as individuals vs. our responsibilities to society. For those who have strongly tilted one way or another during the collective trauma of the last year and a half, righting our own personal ship of state means going to extremes which can feel …extreme. The truth is we need that kind of disruption—but not too often, only once, or at the most twice, in a blue moon.

The emphasis is on uniqueness and individuality at the Full “Blue” Moon in Aquarius August 22, at 29 degrees (the Anaretic or critical/ultimate degree of any sign), opposite Sun in Leo. This is individual rage against a smothering collective, or an indignant collective united against a rebellious individual defying the social norm. Uranus, the planetary ruler of Aquarius currently in Taurus, is trined by Mars in Virgo. A tremendous amount of restless, rebellious energy needs to be channeled into creative, concrete, positive action or it may turn disruptive. Only hours after this lunation, the Sun enters Virgo as well, and Venus in her own sign of Libra trines Saturn in Aquarius August 23. The mature voices of respected elders need to be heard, respected, and heeded. Ancestral trauma deserves and demands healing.

This “Blue” Moon is the third of this season’s four full moons, not the second in a solar month, making it even rarer. Hence the emphasis on how infrequently—and judiciously! - extreme disruption should be used. August is a month to shake up your own personal status quo, especially if you’re stuck in all of 2021’s maddening uncertainty. Honor your own unique voice, do no harm to others, and cut lose wildly! Once, or twice at the most, in a Blue Moon.
