The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 11 awakens our inner rebel, and being at 19 degrees, this rebellion is focused on our partnerships, perhaps even the relationship we have with ourselves. This is the perfect time to break out of a rut and move from being stagnant to focusing on how we can come closer in being aligned with our higher goals and ideals.
The motivation of this Full Moon is breaking generational curses and karmic bonds that no longer serve us. This is where the inner rebel comes with a cause and brings its gift of breaking the rules towards old structures that do not benefit us.
These karmic bonds and generational curses, or cycles, stem from wounds that have directed our paths because of the subconscious programming they engraved upon us. The defense mechanisms we obtained, lessons learned from our parents, and cycles of abusive behavior or victimization are illuminated by the Full Moon, and pushed out into the open so to be dissected, healed, and released.
Individuality and personal freedom are also major highlights. This is where we focus on where we are not free and how we can break past those blockages and personal limitations that keep us there. The relationships we have between others, ourselves, ideals, the material and the ethereal worlds is where much of this is themed.
During the course of this Full Moon’s presence, within three days before and after, would be an excellent opportunity to take the time in understanding where blockages stem from and considering the ways in which we can overcome them.

This is a time of pulling back on the obligations others had held upon you, as they are outdated to where you are being taken advantage of.

This will help them understand how they can reciprocate better so to bring balance to these relationships.
LIBRA SUN, MOON, OR RISING
Ask and you shall receive, Libra. While it’s easier to leave little hints and act nonchalant about what your needs are, you have to remember that not everyone can pick up the subtleness you put down.

You crave more balance in your partnerships, but it first starts with you speaking on what you need.
SCORPIO SUN, MOON, OR RISING

It’s time to rise up and remember that you are the sign of rebirth, alchemy, and raw power. There is a situation you’ve been dealing with that requires you to manipulate the forces around you into a flow that you can align with. This is only done through confidence in yourself, and the knowing that you possess all the tools and resources needed.
SAGITTARIUS SUN, MOON, OR RISING

CAPRCIRON SUN, MOON, OR RISING

This person comes bearing a message though, and so it would be wise to listen to what that is, as you set firm boundaries and stand your ground.
AQUARIUS SUN, MOON, OR RISING
While you’re in the spotlight as the Full Moon shines its light upon you, it doesn’t necessarily feel like a place you want to be, because of the issues that are stirred up.

It’s time to face some fears, Aquarius, you will thank yourself in the long run.
PISCES SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon brings you back something which you had been missing, and it brings you a sense of longing, but also fulfillment in knowing how far you have come since first losing or forgetting it. This may be a memory that takes you back to your adolescence, or when things were much lighter and simpler, or it may be an old friend or flame. It is important to not live in the past, and keep in mind that while you can’t go back to that wonderful place or experience, you can take what you’ve learned and gained, and then apply it towards a better future that invites the same energy you long for.
