Intuitive Astrology: Aquarius Full Moon August 2020

august full moon 2020 astrology

The Aquarius Full Moon lights up the sky on August 3-4th, 2020, welcoming us to the month and the building energies of the Lionsgate Portal.

Full Moons are always illuminating things, helping us to see a bigger truth and to expand our way of thinking.

If things have felt foggy or unclear, this Full Moon calls for us to look again, for perhaps this time, we will receive the answers we are looking for.

The planet of awakening and change, Uranus, is very active under this Full Moon.

Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, but it is also making a square or 90-degree alignment with the Sun at the time of the Full Moon. This alignment with Uranus triggers things in our lives to feel shaky and unsteady.

We may notice things moving and shifting around us, causing us to feel uncertain and unstable. It may be hard to know what to trust and what direction to choose.

When this level of shaky uncertainty enters our life, it allows us to see what is weak and needs to fall, and what is strong. Whatever withstands the shaking remains, whatever was already weak will fall away.

This energy is not there to upset our lives, rather it is there to help us remove and let go of the things no longer meant for us.

Most of us know when it’s time to let go of something or someone, but sometimes it can be hard to do so.

The shake-up from this Full Moon will help us to gently let go of these things, and to remind us that we need not hold on in fear.

What are you holding on to out of fear? What thoughts, beliefs, people, circumstances are you gripping onto?

This Full Moon asks you to clear the way. It asks you to shake up your beliefs, your ideas, your circumstances, so you can see what needs to remain.

Under this Aquarius Full Moon energy, it is better to let things shake and fall where they may, rather than trying to control.

If we surrender and go with the flow, we can allow the Universe to show us the way with grace in our hearts.

This shaky energy from Uranus also serves another purpose – awakening our soul energy.

When things shake and rattle us, it causes us to see things in a new light and to feel differently about ourselves and the world we live in. This can trigger an awakening, and a coming into new knowledge and wisdom.

Uranus shakes us to awaken us, and to show us a new and higher path.

Uranus also rules over Kundalini energy, which is seen as a serpent that lives at the base of our spine.


When our Kundalini energy rises, as it does when we are under the presence of Uranus, the snake uncoils itself, traveling up the energy centers of the body, all the way to the top of our head and beyond.

When the snake awakens, we can learn new things, see new things, and experience life at a different frequency.

We can all activate our own Kundalini awakening under this energy by setting an intention and tuning in. This is not something we can force, but something we can allow and welcome if we feel it right to do so.

This awakening and activating energy will also be supported by the opening of the Lionsgate Portal.

The Lionsgate Portal opens every year and peaks by August 8th, however the energy will already be brewing at the time of this Full Moon.

As the Sun reaches the peak of Leo Season and we have Sirius, our Spiritual Sun high in the sky, Lionsgate is activated, sending messages, downloads, and insights to Earth.

The August Full Moon will help to illuminate these energies as they grow, and if we tune in, we may start receiving downloads, intuitive wisdom, or even new ideas and inspirations to guide us on our way.

This is beautiful energy to tap into, and one that can advance us further on our path.

If you have questions, if you are looking for new wisdom, if you want to stretch your mind to new heights, reach higher under the light of this Full Moon.

Open yourself to the energy and allow information to flood in. Very often on a Full Moon, we like to dictate what we wish to release or call in, but this energy calls for us to get still and enter a place of allowing.

If we quiet our mind, and reach beyond our knowing, we may find new information and downloads easier to receive.

We all have the power to receive these downloads, so go out under the light of the Moon. Look at it shining bright in the sky. Ask for it to bring you wisdom; ask for it to send its ancient messages straight into your being.

Open to the downloads you receive, trust your abilities, and be patient if things start to move and shake.

As we shake, we let go of the things no longer meant for us, we clear out things that were weak and crumbling.

After the pieces have landed where they may, we will feel renewed, restored, and awakened with a greater knowing of who we are and where we need to be.
