The full moon in Aquarius, also called the sturgeon moon, is occurring on August 22nd at 8:01 a.m., ET. This is the second Aquarius full moon we are experiencing this Leo season, and it’s packed with positive energy. The first full moon in Aquarius happened on July 23rd, during which we started to see a glimmer of new opportunities coming to light as a result of our past efforts and intentions. Now, with the second Aquarius full moon of 2021, we can expect to put into motion what the last full moon revealed to us. This is also a beneficial time for new relationships, elevating contracts, or creating long-term agreements.

A full moon occurs when the moon is directly opposite from the sun in the sky, causing the full and bright effect. In this case, the Aquarius moon is forming an opposition with the Leo sun in their final 29th degree. In astrology, this is called a critical degree, and when this occurs, it can represent the completion of a cycle.

Furthermore, this Aquarius moon is forming a harmonious connection with the planet of expansion and luck, Jupiter, which is in retrograde. This planetary alignment brings delayed rewards from the past, and we can experience the rewards of Jupiter through our own internal growth. In short, the second Aquarius full moon of 2021 is packed with forward momentum and progress.
