Full Moon in Aquarius
8/3/20 8:58 AM
Natural Chart / Whole Houses
A Full Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon occupy the same degrees of opposing astrological signs. As you can see from the above Full Moon Chart, the Sun is at 11° Leo and the Moon is 180° away at 11° Aquarius making this a Full Moon. When two planets form an opposition in this manner it creates a division. Two things are being split apart or divided.
The Big Picture
Aquarius is associated with groups of like minded individuals. They usually come together for a single purpose which serves the group's interests or agenda and which is greater than that of any one individual. For this reason Aquarius rules over clubs, organizations, friends, groups, and associations.
On the flipside, Leo is more about the individual. Leo is the dramatic actor who needs to take center stage and get all the attention for themselves. They can be quite territorial! They are not concerned with the needs of the many (in a general sense here) but rather with their own needs.
So what we can expect from this Full Moon in Aquarius? Well a divide between the group agenda / needs and the needs of the individual is expected. With the Full Moon in Aquarius friends and associations come under scrutiny and some relationships or associations may come to an end. Alternately, an acquaintance may become a closer friend. People are, generally speaking, less materialistic now and more charitable. People tend to focus on their dreams for the future now as well as their place in the world. Now is the time to take steps towards realizing ones dreams or abandon them all together for something more realistic.

The Personal Touch
To better understand how the Full Moon in Aquarius will affect you on an individual level you need to look at the houses in which Aquarius and Leo fall in your natal chart. For example, in my own chart Aquarius is in the 4th Natal House and Leo is in the 10th. These two houses are known as the Angular Houses (along with the 1st and 7th) and these are very powerful houses. The fourth house is known as the Imum Coeli (IC) and the tenth house is known as the Midheaven or Medium Coeli (MC).
Whereas the IC rules over our home and private life, the MC rules over our public life and reputation. For me, there would seem to be a divide between my sense of privacy and what I share with the public (or how I am perceived by the public). With the Full Moon in the 4th house, endings related to the home and family are indicated. This may also be a situation that I would want to keep from the public or to somehow control the flow of information so as the prevent misunderstanding with the public.
You can go deeper by checking the aspects between the Full Moon in 11° Aquarius and other points in your natal chart. For example, in my own chart the Transit Moon is making an Opposition to my Natal MC. What this means is that my emotions turn inwards and I will not want to deal with the public or people in general. I'll want to spend more time alone in familiar surroundings (my home) and only have contact with close friends and family members. I may feel more possessive of the people close to me or a strong desire to belong to someone which provides a sense of security
