Full Moon August 11, 2022 – Adversity into Success

Full Moon August 2022 AstrologyThe Full Moon in Aquarius on August 11, 2022, is conjunct Saturn and square Uranus. So the Full Moon August 2022 meaning is adapting to restrictive changes and unexpected restrictions.

The Full Moon August 2022 astrology may bring sudden changes, erratic emotions, delays, worry and sadness. However, Saturn is in exact alignment with a fortunate star. It means that adversity can be overcome and turned into success. But only with patience, emotional maturity and a conservative approach.

Full Moon August 2022 Astrology

The August 11 Full Moon at 19°21′ Aquarius is conjunct Saturn and square Uranus. The last exact Saturn Uranus square was in December 2021, and the aspect orb now is over three degrees. But because of retrograde motion, this major planetary aspect is applying (getting stronger). It reaches an orb of 0°37′ in early October 2022. Saturn square Uranus is the last major aspect until Saturn sextile Uranus in 2025.

No major fixed star conjunct this full moon, and none conjunct Uranus. But Saturn is exactly aligned with a fortunate star that will strongly influence the Full Moon August 2022 astrology.

Full Moon Meaning

Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your relationships. You will see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

Full Moon in Aquarius 2022 Aspects

Full Moon conjunct Saturn adds seriousness to your emotions and can lead to distance in your intimate relationships. You may have to deal with some challenging situations and negative attitudes which will feel worse than they are.

These hindrances and restrictions will apply mainly to your home and family life. Some drama involving your home, parents, children, or partner will be very trying on your emotions and can lead to feelings of rejection and depression.

Self-discipline and emotional maturity are called for, and feelings of guilt about past behaviors must be overcome. Exposing emotional vulnerabilities and opening up to loved ones will enable the nurturing and bonding required to overcome the problem.

Full Moon square Uranus can cause rapid mood swings, impulsive reactions and emotional outbursts in response to sudden, unexpected changes. You may feel jumpy, impatient, and easily distracted. This can cause problems with anything requiring commitment or focus. And you are likely to rebel against anyone who tries to tie you down or force you to do something.

Your instincts and reflexes may be rapid but not accurate. This is not a good time for making sudden changes, especially in close relationships. New encounters may meet your need for a thrill but would cause a great deal of upset in your life and hurt loved ones.

Saturn Square Uranus, Again

Saturn square Uranus brings restrictive change and unexpected restrictions. It can bring change that you don’t want. It also makes it harder to make the changes you want. Rising tension and sudden, expected changes can be very frustrating.

But if you stay open-minded, patient and flexible, what at first seem like challenges, can be turned into opportunities to rid yourself of negative, restrictive, and limiting things. This is not the time to resist change, nor is it the time to overreact. A well-considered, methodical, patient, and step-by-step approach is best.

The Constellations

Full Moon August 2022 is in the Sign of Aquarius. But as the star map below shows, it is actually in the Constellation of Capricorn. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago. The Signs were originally invented only as a measuring device. Astrologers had always used the visible constellation and their stars for astrological interpretation.

Full Moon August 2022 Astrology [Stellarium]

No major fixed stars are aligned with the August 11 Full Moon, but it is located in the Tail of the Sea Goat. According to Ptolemy, the stars in the tail are like Saturn and Jupiter (dignified, pious, conservative, acquisitive, retentive). [1]

Saturn is also in the tail, exactly conjunct fixed star Nashira at 22°06′ Aquarius. The name Nashira comes from the Arabic سعد ناشرة (sa’d nashirah), which means “the lucky one” or “bearer of good news.”

Nashira causes overcoming by evil, which is turned into success. [1] It is an indicator of social popularity and political success. [2]

Nashira has a Saturn influence made good by added Jupiter influence. It will bring a life full of change, make a native become a legal adviser or counselor, and gives such a person the ability to hold a position of trust. This fixed star makes for integrity and justice and gives knowledge of man. [3]

Full Moon August 2022 Summary

The Full Moon in Aquarius 2022 conjunct Saturn and square Uranus brings restrictive change and unexpected restrictions. This takes us back to late December 2021 and early January 2022 during the last Saturn Uranus square.

Back then, the COVID pandemic, natural disasters and political instability were causing hardship, anxiety, and grief. Expect more of the same as Saturn square Uranus slowly increases in strength, reaching a minimum orb of 0°37′ in early October 2022.

But the strongest influence on the Full Moon August 2022 astrology is the square to Uranus, with an orb on only half a degree. This means rapid mood swings, impulsive reactions and emotional outbursts in response to sudden, unexpected changes.

The Full Moon conjunct Saturn can cause restrictions, delays, worry and sadness. But the Moon and Saturn are in a fortunate part of the sky, in the Tail of the Sea-Goat. So with patience, emotional maturity and a conservative approach, adversity can be overcome and turned into success.

Astrologically, the preceding new moon influences the Full Moon. The July 28 New Moon brought unexpected news and sudden change. It made people nervous, erratic and impulsive. But if you remain open-minded and flexible, you can take advantage of opportunities for growth and prosperity.

The influence of the August 11 Full Moon lasts for two weeks up to the August 27 New Moon. This waning moon phase is good for releasing and letting go, resting, healing, regenerating, contemplating, meditating, decluttering, harvesting, pruning, and hair cutting.

If the Full Moon August 2022 astrology directly impacts your horoscope decan, you can read about it in your monthly horoscope. For more detail about how it affects your natal chart, see full moon transits.

  1. Hi Jamie, may I ask, and I’m probably clutching at straws here, is it possible that any unexpectedly cruel/harsh changes that occurred, beyond ones control (thanks to this square) may see some sort of reversal involved. Not the change itself but perhaps the unexpected longer term fallout from it?

    The square in December put an end which was devastating and freeing simultaneously. It was quite a traumatic for me but I quickly understood the rejection had freed me from a very toxic area of work and environment, but the loss of livelihood obviously threatens basic needs & freedoms and a couple of close relationships that really do matter to me, but I am not a possessive or controlling character, if it is time to let go, then so be it. However I do need to be sensible about this and doubt I am not alone in being thrust into these unexpected consequences beyond my control, although it serves no purpose to waste time or energy constantly holding grudges and blaming others. This Full Moon conjunct Saturn is in 4th square Uranus in 7th, Saturn is also opposing natal Uranus in 10th, thus will be conjunct the Sun and with transit Pluto squatting on natal Saturn in 3rd square Libra asc, I really could do with just a teeny weeny flicker of light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel. And its not the first time I have been in worse, those Cardinal crosses back from 2012 left me with very little at all from life as I knew it and all I had worked hard for. Constantly being misunderstood and misinterpreted and judged as wrong, is one of the major causes of current problems, and yet, I am a solid up front well practiced and experienced communicator, with quite a lot of wisdom gained from those prior personal times of crisis and adversity…. go figure.

      • I appreciate that, however it doesn’t answer the particular question I was asking with regards to an astrological opinion on the Uranus rx square Saturn rx period.Thanks anyway!

    • Hi Debbie. I remember those Cardinal Crosses. Many people struggled with them, but they did not seem to have as strong an effect on world events as Saturn square Uranus. Sorry I cannot visualize your chart from what you said. I need to see a chart. Must be something about my brain.

    • If you look at the chart, substitute the January 12, 1962 transits with my daughters, and you’ll find her Sun conjunct Ascendant, and her Moon conjunct Vertex.

      so I call her up.

      After a brief introduction of a few asteroids, I mention the horoscope suggests Im Endymion and Selene is a dream visitor. A lot has gone on the last few days…

      Is it reasonable to attribute an Archivist to Selene? My kid says Excellent.

      Other career notes is Trumps use of the word ‘Outrageous’, and in previous years ‘Dont Let him Dominate You’, which i mentioned to my kid as Negative manifestations of someone born in Mid January. A third negative is ‘Dont expect your ideas or instructions to apply to everyone.’ Which ive been careful about, the artwork is political, and we’re no where near 8 billion people living to 80.

      The latest Nuclear references may be attributed to my early career working to MIL SPEC building nuclear reactor cores. If they find planning or varoius mundane shop floor notes they want to hold onto, they are out there…

      Finally, Ill make a stretch here and attribute the Steele dossier to Book Length content ive put up at various Business forums over the years, especially 2001 thru 2015.

      Put in me in the camp the Raid is generally about the Ark, or Holy Grail, anecdotes and the like.

  2. Beatles Cow Palace, 58 year anniversary


    Moon 21 Cap, 11th house, Outrageous?
    Neptune Scorpio 8th House, sex drugs and rock n roll, eventually
    The Band on the descendant, Pluto, Uranus, Mercury Rx, Pauls Left hand bassh

    45 trying to keep the temperature down, but your taking your sister and shes hopeless.

  3. That’s fine Jamie, Im not great with being able to visualise things like that either and yes my life was pretty much demolished by the 7 cardinal crosses, was homeless couch surfing for all of it, and I dont think it helped that I was also experiencing both my 2nd Saturn return & Chiron return in the meantime hahaha! I just was asking to understand whether there is also the potential for the Saturn rx Uranus rx square rather than in forward motion may help prompt a sudden reversal to reduce any damage done from the original square in forward motion? Sudden realisation and ideas for damage control would be welcome for many I would think 🙂

  4. If you are sleuthing the August 8th ‘Raid of the Ark’, the website Monolithtracker.com was inaccessible during the post Full Moon August period. The connection is the presence of physical evidence that could be gone in a fortnight if people are careless or indifferent?

    The shock of August 8th has a twin with the shock of September 8th, the ‘Queens Passing’. Similar themes, a Sarcophagus or coffin, art deecorated, a myth telling a story, asteroids Endymion and Selene.

    The bridging of the two is unique. Is it a Queens wish or Prince, or perhaps a few hundred among the thousands watching the funeral?

    • Another span to the bridge, The Clarence Chant new Moon, June 28, ‘Procession of the Meteors’, fills out a summer of recollection, what a Mercury Retrograde advises we do now, not look prophetically at a future uncertain. Save that for Mercury direct.

      Whatever meteor you are, in stately Earth procession, perhaps tomorrow a comet or bollide; bunched up with your pals, or more singular… Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable covers every season.

  5. August 8th Raid, Mar a Lago, Miami, Florida


    Obviously, this would be a Geocentric chart. But compare it to the August 27, New Moon, Heliocentric chart, to take yourself to a more lofty place, the Artworks (Ark) evolution and Proof that it is, indeed the object and subject of The Raid.


    Both charts have a planet at the Galactic Centre.
    Geocentric Moon, Helio Mercury

    Both charts have Venus, the object of a ransacking, FBI or Solar Flare. Opposite Pluto, the planet of neccesity, ie. Art as Vaccine, brought Out and into the Open.

    Both charts have Venus trine Neptune. If you are involved in a creatie project that has to develop completely in your mind before taking physical form, this is a useful aspect.

  6. “In Astrology, a distinction is made between three modes of vibration, which are linked to the very rhythm of Nature and the seasons. With time and experience, different energies can be observed in those born at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of a season. The signs known as Cardinal open each season; Fixed signs occur as the season is blossoming; Mutable signs end the cycle while preparing for the next one.”

    this is a generic comment from Free-Horoscope.com, in case you may be sleuthing the trigger behind all these music video links lately. Astrologyking is known for its vibration forum, it’ll put a song in your heart. Especially this Northern Hemisphere summer, with the evidence already provided.
