The Full Moon in Aquarius peaks today, August 3rd, just before 4pm BST. The early Native Americans named full moons to reflect what was happening in their lives at the time. This one is often referred to as a Sturgeon Moon because fish were often caught in North American lakes around this time. In the UK it is known as the Grain Moon.
The full moon today is square Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, calling for flexibility and adaptability. Things may seem a little shaky and unsteady. It is not a time for being erratic or taking risks. Mercury is also opposing Saturn which requires positive thinking, hard work and patience. Be kind. It will make all the difference.
Home, family and relationships are brought into focus and conflicts in these areas can exert pressure and tension, leaving us drained and exhausted.
