This Aquarius Full Moon Is Asking You to Trust Yourself

Happy full moon! All of that beautiful but rebellious Aquarian energy is swirling around us today. How are you going to tap into its magic?

The Moon is Square Uranus at 9:57 AM

This morning, the moon in airy Aquarius forms a square with Uranus in grounded Taurus. This transit instills an urge to break free from responsibilities, expectations, and old patterns. As such, we might be temporarily uncomfortable. It can also cause tension in relationships since it can have us feeling on edge and prone to emotional outbursts. But ultimately, if we tread lightly and don’t burn bridges, it can lead to personal growth on the other side.

The Full Moon in Aquarius Occurs at 12:00 PM

When the moon is in Aquarius, there’s a certain energy that’s palpable in the air. It’s an urge to shake things up. If you’ve been feeling mired in your own emotions lately, Aquarius can feel like a relief. It allows us to stand back, view things objectively, and create a new plan of action.

Aquarian energy brings us beauty, creativity, and love—but also a desire for individuality and emotional freedom. You might be on the cusp of a big next step or decision, and you’re anxious to get going. The key is to approach these decisions from a place of calm and stillness so that you can hear your intuition—your higher self—through the noise of all the other ideas (and self-limiting beliefs) swirling around in your mind right now. The answers you’re looking for are already inside you. You just need to trust yourself.

Aquarius is the sign of the visionary, so expect some serious intuitive hits during today’s full moon. Your mind may be blown more than once. This moon also has us wanting to connect with everybody and learn from the experiences of others. Humanitarian thoughts and plans become something of a preoccupation. We can start to see our places in the world as a whole and can focus on the evolution of humankind.

On the flip side, it’s possible that this Aquarian energy can make you feel like retreating into your own little world. That’s OK too. We all need to recharge once in a while.

Mercury is Opposite Saturn at 4:30 PM

Later this afternoon, Mercury in Cancer forms an opposition with Saturn in Capricorn, and the mood gets serious. We may have to guard ourselves against negative thinking and a gloomy outlook. You could find yourself dwelling on loneliness, relationship troubles, and anything else that might not be going perfectly right now. You may even feel like it’s time to say goodbye to a friendship or end a romantic partnership. That’s not the best idea right now, because your perspective is being distorted.

The upside to this transit is that critical eye can be used for positive things instead of just tearing everything down around you. It’s a good time for problem-solving, and you’ll have more mental clarity to do some really detail-oriented projects. Just make sure to take enough breaks during the day so you don’t get dragged down by your mood.
