This Supermoon-in-Aquarius Limpia Will Help You Lean Into Your Powers

August is coming in hot! Think of it as a big end-of-summer party in the sky that can be felt on planet Earth. This month will usher in some serious astrological energy for us to work with if we choose. There will be two supermoons this month, beginning with the full moon in Aquarius on Aug. 1. The second is at the end of the month, falling on Aug. 30, which is a blue moon because it's so rare for two full moons to take place in the same month. Additionally, multiple planets are currently in retrograde, including Venus, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto. So get ready to shift, evolve, and expand.

With these supermoons on display this month, we're given the opportunity to shed old skin. Think about the patterns you've seen come up time and time again in your life. What are you tired of seeing on replay? Then use the power of the Aquarius full moon to begin letting things go. Utilize that second supermoon this month to be done with these patterns once and for all.

The supermoon is super because it's when the moon's orbit is closest to Earth when it is full. It brings our lunar friend up close and personal, creating memorable skies. The beauty and closeness of the moon at that time is symbolic of our inner beauty and the need to be up close and personal with ourselves. Trust and believe that you can transform your life just as the moon transforms before your eyes.

The August supermoons will be on the 2nd and 3rd of the year. The first took place in July, and the final supermoon of the year occurs on Sept. 29.

When Is the Full Moon in Aquarius?

The Aquarius full moon will peak on Aug. 1 at 2:32 p.m. ET. You can expect to see it illuminating the sky brightly at dusk. At that time, the name "supermoon" will really apply, as the moon may appear to be much larger than usual and approximately 16 percent brighter.

What Does the 2023 Full Moon in Aquarius Mean?

Indigenous communities called this moon the full sturgeon moon because it's the time of year when the giant, prehistoric-looking fish was plentiful. This meant that the collective would benefit from the surplus of fish. Aquarius is also focused on us as a whole. In fact, this Aquarian full moon helps us to see our role in humanity. The 11th zodiac sign thrives when everyone is doing well collectively, and since Aquarians think big, you can expect revolutionary changes to occur when needed. This air sign will dig deep to find the answers that are necessary to implement lasting change. Tap into your inner Aquarius, but be sure to remain humble and not let the humanitarian leader within go to your head. Other opinions matter, too.

Under the full moon in Aquarius, take a moment to reflect on yourself and what you bring to the collective human race. But don't think of it as a time to put too much pressure on yourself. You do not have to change the world in one day. Maybe it's just small changes within yourself that have a positive impact on the world around you. It could be as simple as volunteering for a local organization that is doing great work in your community or on a much grander scale, like creating a global revolution to save our planet and everyone and everything living on it.

Aquarius is ruled by Saturn, the planet that teaches us the value of patience and sacrifice, and Uranus is the planet of sudden and unexpected changes. Under the full moon in Aquarius, you don't have to figure it all out. With change and sacrifice, the most surprising and beautiful things can occur. So embrace it. You may discover something amazing within yourself that others have seen all along.

Under the Aquarius full moon, be kind to your heart, relax, and kick your legs up. After all, Aquarius rules the circulatory system, ankles, calves, and shins.

  8. Place your blue candle, orchid, and chosen crystals nearby. Light the candle to ignite your full-moon ritual.
  9. Then gently pour the limpia over your body as you pray, give thanks, ask for guidance, speak to your ancestors, or whatever you feel called to do. Allow that sacred water to cleanse you of whatever you need to let go of, and fill that space with love.
