The Moon in Aquarius activates the MIND 🤯 but don’t overthink it!

Where’s the Moon right now?

Maybe you know her phase, whether she’s waxing or waning, or even if she’s close to a new lunar cycle…?

But what about her astrology? Because the zodiac sign of the current Moon can be a HUGE influence on your daily life, including when the Moon in Aquarius hits (my favorite place for her to be!)

The Moon spends between 1 and 4 days at a time in a single zodiac sign.

Some people are highly attuned to her celestial shifts, yet some rarely feel them at all (Cancer Moon…? There’s no way YOU can avoid them!) But as a collective, the current Moon sign has a definite influence on the “energetic climate” of the day. You could think of this as a kind of “collective horoscope”, so alongside the Sun sign, knowing what the current Moon sign is, will help you navigate her waters SO much more smoothly…

What’s the Meaning of the Moon in Aquarius?

This 11th sign of the zodiac is forward-facing, independent, and collectively-minded.

Despite often being confused for a water sign (being the water-bearer, it would make sense…) Aquarius is an air sign.

One of the supposed reasons for the modern misunderstanding is that our ancestors believed the area of the skies from which this archetype came, to be the heavenly “sea”. Not necessarily water, but an ocean of potential… A vast expanse that contained all possibilities, like the limitless expanse of pure potential.

Whilst water quenches, running across the surface of the Earth, dripping into every crevice, air rises. Air expands, seeking new spaces to fill, new ideas to explore, new realms to discover….

And so, the Moon in Aquarius tends to activate the thinking realms..

Under an Aquarius Moon, you’ll likely find ideas materializing from thin air, inspiration hits aplenty, and new perspectives appearing. But these don’t have the multiplicity that, say, a Gemini Moon will bring. You’re not about to start seeing the world through other people’s eyes.

Despite being THE sign of the collective, under an Aquarius Moon, individualism rules. This means this bright, expansive lunar energy will encourage you to trust yourself first.

Your thoughts, ideas, viewpoints, ambitions, and goals all matter

Aquarius Moons remind us all that our uniqueness makes the world go around, so this Moon is both a celebration of that and encouragement to push yourself up to your own edges of what feels quirky, kinky and eccentric!

Whatever makes you a little bit weird, the Moon in Aquarius gives you permission to let it show!

But digging below the surface, this Moon really wants to enable us to become the masters of our own thoughts. To TRUST ourselves enough to weave the threads coiled in our minds out into the world beyond. And that means beyond only your life, and your family’s life, into the lives of others – on a BIG scale.

Aquarius is well known as the sign of the humanitarian

So when the Moon sails through this breezy air sign, we all feel the urge to improve the greater good. Maybe it’s because this lunar energy can make you feel like the odd one out, that the common good becomes all the more important.

In fact, freedom fighters of the world, social justice activists and those with a revolutionary spirit can tend to feature Aquarius Moons in their natal charts… coincidence?

But like fellow air signs Gemini and Libra, this Moon can create a ‘heady’, ideas-based vibe, so make sure you’re not all talk. Inspire action under this astrology by taking it!

  • What can you add?
  • What’s your gift, your vision or the cause you believe in the most?
  • How can you actively participate… today?

Expect the Moon in Aquarius to support you 100%.

Counter-intuitively, Aquarius is one of the fixed signs (along with Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio). This means under this Moon, you could get stuck on an idea or a cause and like a dog with a bone, find it difficult to let go. So be sure you’re acting for the cause, and not for the sake of proving a point or winning a battle…

Aquarius is ruled by rebellious Uranus, the planet that governs electricity, technology, and cutting-edge inventions. If you consider again how this Moon we’re describing is moving through the domain of the water bearer, it makes sense. Water is a conductor of electricity, and both are dynamic, energizing, and life-giving. Our bodies and the world ( – the greater body of Mother Earth – ) are run on both water and electrical charge.

So this Moon is enlivening!

Life-giving, pushing us onward, compelling us to advance, evolve and improve.

…But on a practical note, under the Moon in Aquarius, you may find yourself getting sucked into your devices! So ensure you’re using them as tools for good… and they’re not using you.

The Aquarius Moon body

If you’re physically affected by la Luna’s transit through the sign of Aquarius, then you’ll likely feel it in your lower legs and ankles.
This part of your body could begin to suffer if you’re standing a lot today. Or if you already tend to get aches + pains in your lower legs, be careful not to put even more strain on yourself. Make comfy shoes a priority!

But on the upside, anything you can do to strengthen or heal this region will be doubly beneficial.

The Aquarius Moon shadow

Every Moon has her shadow.

Shadows are rejected, hidden, suppressed, distorted, misunderstood, (or all of those!) aspects of self. These rise to the surface, often unconsciously in response to triggers or under emotional strain.

Under an Aquarius Moon, the shadow can look like:

  • Detachment (from others and from your own emotions)
  • Narcissism
  • Self-centredness and control
  • High minded and superior
  • Stubbornness
  • Pushing boundaries for the sake of it
