Intuitive Astrology: Aquarius Super Full Moon 2023

aquarius full moon august 2023

The Aquarius Full Moon arrives at the top of the month on August 1st. As a lunar cycle is 29.5 days, this means we are set for another Full Moon on August 30th, a Blue Moon in the sign of Pisces.

Both of these Full Moons will be Super Moons, meaning they will be closer to Earth, and we will feel their effects more strongly.

While the Pisces Super Blue Moon deserves its own article, having two Full Super Moons in the same month indicates a strong pull to release, detox, let go, and walk away from all that is no longer resonant with our being.

By the end of August, we are likely to find ourselves left with some empty space, whether that be physically, emotionally, or both.

The Aquarius Super Full Moon, a Portal to Healing

The Aquarius Full Moon on August 1st is the perfect entrance point to this journey of creating space. It holds a sweet, healing vibration, guiding us to gently and lovingly prepare to let go of all that is heavy.

We are likely to feel strong healing vibrations under this Full Moon, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. This heart-healing energy will be further amplified as Venus, the planet of love, will be deep in her retrograde journey.

We may find painful emotions, heartbreaks, grief, and disappointments rising to the surface. We may feel extra emotional and sensitive, and while it may be intense, especially leading up to the Full Moon, we are likely to feel a sense of relief once it passes.

The Water Bearer Moon

Aquarius is the sign of the water bearer, but don’t let that mistake you. Aquarius is an air sign, which means energy will be concentrated around our heads. It may be hard for us to get out of our heads. Our thoughts may swirl; we may find ourselves going back and forth over things.

While it can be challenging to stay out of this headspace, it may be necessary for us to pause and listen to what our thoughts have to say.

Writing things out on paper, talking things through with a friend, or simply taking the time to have a conversation with our mental chatter may bring some relief.

As the water bearer, Aquarius energy holds the gift of being able to take the mental chatter, emotions, and psychic debris (water) that are in circling and transmute them before returning them back to earth. In this transmutation process, this psychic debris is returned to a zero-point state, to a state of neutrality.

When this state is achieved, the mind can think clearly, we can feel more aligned, and the right answers can be found more easily.

Aquarius energy can help us to see intellectually, logically, but also from a state of neutrality so we can make the best decision moving forward.

Of course, the process is not always as neat as this, but know you have healing energies on your side. And know that this Full Moon will be supporting your journey, especially if there is something you need to let go of in your life.

The Aquarius Full Moon and Chariklo

The healing vibrations of this Full Moon will also be enhanced by the asteroid, Chariklo, which will be very active under this Full Moon.

Chariklo is also connected with healing, but she deals in the realm of spirit medicine. Chariklo guides us to find the right medicine, whether that is a walk in the park, a supplement, a meditation practice, or a herbal tea.

Chariklo is very connected to herbs, healing foods, crystals, and the elements of nature. She encourages us to remember the healing power of our own body and that we can support our life force energy by turning to the gifts of mother nature.

Recharging your mind, body, and soul under this Full Moon may very well come from spending time in nature or choosing medicinal foods and herbs.

Use your intuition to guide you to what feels the most nourishing, and then use that to restore and replenish your body.

Walking into the Lionsgate

Shortly after this Full Moon reaches its peak, we will find ourselves walking into the Lionsgate Portal.

The Lionsgate Portal activates on August 8, and can also bring a rise of healing energy too.

Lionsgate is a portal that honors the rising of Sirius, our Spiritual Sun. As our Spiritual Sun rises, it is reborn, and we too, can feel the rebirth of our own Spirit energy under this portal.

With all of this strong lunar energy circulating, and the portal peaking just days after, this Full Moon is a powerful time to clear and reset your system.

Use its energy to do a cleanse, a detox, and to flush negative thinking out of your being. Just like the Aquarian water bearer, come back to your zero state point, and from there, everything will feel easier.
