Who’s in my tribe? That’s the question asked by the full Moon in Aquarius on Monday, August 3rd. This shouldn’t be surprising, really. After all, Aquarius is the sign that encourages friendship.
It also recommends connecting with others outside your circle—like networking globally, which is why the internet and technology are under Aquarius’s watchful eye.
Any time a full moon occurs, it’s a wonderful time to bring something to a close. This has a lot of meaning when the full moon is in Aquarius, as all sorts of juicy things can be announced: an engagement, perhaps, or a retirement. But it’s not just the news that’s important, it’s the celebrating that goes along with it!
So even though this flies in the face of Covid, the full moon is the best time in 2020 for planning some kind of get-together, even if the actual date is somewhat obscured due to this situation. Let’s face it, once a vaccine gets approved people are going to go crazy, planning birthdays and vacations and family reunions. Be ahead of the curve.
This lunation is a terrific time to start looking into volunteer activities that stir your soul. Aquarius is altruistic, always going beyond the self, looking out for others. With everything that has been going on in the world lately, there is no shortage of worthy causes to get involved in.
Again, you may not be able to meet with others—not yet–but you can look into a charity or volunteer group that could use your help once things get back to normal. If you have the cash, make a donation to a good cause. Or offer to be a mentor to someone who could use your advice, as Aquarius is the sign of acquiring and dispensing wisdom.
Connecting with others is a smart move for your career too. August is loaded with good aspects for anyone who is looking for a new job, a promotion or trying to boost their business’s revenues. The period from the 9th through the 25th is awesome, with some of the best aspects I’ve seen in a long time. Work your connections. Join a mastermind group. Get on an online forum or webinar.
There are plenty of courses that you can take online FOR FREE. I just found this article in the New York Post about amazing classes that schools are offering at no cost. You can learn a new language or how to code, for example. One of the most popular classes at Yale University– “The Science of Well-Being”, which is all about happiness—is available online for free. https://nypost.com/2020/08/02/enhance-a-staycation-by-honing-a-new-skill-and-all-for-free/https://nypost.com/2020/08/02/enhance-a-staycation-by-honing-a-new-skill-and-all-for-free/
This class has gotten world-wide press and has practically been impossible to get in to if you’re a Yale student. I read about it a couple of years ago, because it’s supposed to be a real game changer from the science world. I just signed up this morning and I’m already into Week #1 of the curriculum, because yeah, I’m ready to listen to a Yale psych prof teach me how to get my sh** together.
American Express, Coursera, Google and other big names are also offering courses in small business development and other topics you might be interested in.
Are you in the tech field? Thinking about blogging, opening an Etsy store, or teaching online? Now is the time to go for it. Aquarius is the tech sector of the zodiac, and the full moon is telling you to get off you duff. Despite the grim economic news, tons of people are shopping online and paying for online courses. I just visited my local UPS store, which is a privately owned place where you can ship packages, buy stamps, get old bills shredded and so on.
I thought the store had been closed due to Covid. Nope! The owner told me that business has never been better, as a matter of fact, which shocked me. He explained that everyone is sitting at home shopping online, and when they get something they need to return, they bring it to his store.
My personal feeling is that we all need to control spending due to the impending recession that’s coming our way, but people still need to purchase things and they feel mighty uncomfortable about going into a store to get it.
There is a bit of tension going on with this lunation: Mercury opposes Saturn. This nonsense started back in early July, with planets in the domestic sector (Cancer) opposing orbs in the career zone (Capricorn). When you consider that many of us are still working out of out homes, this makes sense. Some people love it. Others hate it.
Many people are being told that they will have to go back to their job location soon, and this full moon could work their nerves. I know many teachers who are petrified of returning to their schools. This oppositional energy will reoccur several more times in August, on the 13th, 25th and the 30th (big time). Pay attention to these dates, especially if there is a conflict about which employees get to work from home and which ones have to go in. I wouldn’t be surprised if certain unions threaten to go on strike on these dates.
Hey, Aquarius is all about bringing power back to the people. The good news is that before August is over, the Sun will be in cooperative Virgo, along with talkative Mercury.
So don’t let Covid turn you into a hermit! The Aquarius full moon is all about getting together with people, and if that means a Zoom call, so be it!
