Aquarius Full Moon 2021: Blue Moon & Grand Air Trine

The Aquarius Full Moon on August 22, 2021 is a Blue Moon, the second Aquarius Full Moon in a row. The first on July 23rd was beside Saturn and opposite Mars. This time, Jupiter Retrograde opposes the Sun.

As the cycle culminates, Mercury and Mars are together in Virgo, each forming a buzzy, electric trine to stationing Uranus Retrograde.
