Your Guide to Full Moon in Aquarius
The Full Moon rises in 26 degrees Aquarius August 7th, 2017 at 2:11 P.M (E.T). This full moon is barren, airy and affectionately know as the "Friendship" Moon. Air signs are known for wanting to detach from the order of this world and looking to the cosmos for guidance.
Aquarius signs are highly intelligent, thoughtful and attracted to the revolutionary. When the full moon rises in Aquarius, seeds will be planted into your subconscious - and with Mars at play, some of you may be fighting it; denying it. If you choose to deny the truth presented, then please own it. Don't tip-toe on the line. You're either expanding or diminishing. Which one is it going to be?
Aquarians cannot be held down, they want a new adventure everyday. They look towards the future and not the past. Aquarians yearn to be with and learn from different people. Some astrologers suggest that Aquarians divorce at a higher rate than other signs because of their tendency to constantly be evolving and moving on from person to person. If you're not an Aquarius, this need for change will influence your Sun and Ascendant signs usual states.
If you haven't had time to catch up with your friends, now is the time to do it. More specifically intellectual conversations and knowledge being shared back and forth. Plus, friendship is good for you! Recent studies have shown that friendship has a positive influence on health and well-being.

Crystals for friendship: emerald, axinite, jade, lapis lazuli, malachite, pyrolusite, and sardonyx.
Inner & Outer Conflict⠀
Mars is opposing this moon which will bring about some serious tension between your subconscious mind and how you assert yourself. If you're quick to tell it how it is, you may bite your tongue in order to save a relationship you really care about. If you tend to dwell on things and overthink, you might be confronted with a situation in which you don't have time to assess and need to make a quick decision. In either case, trust yourself. You will know what to do.⠀⠀⠀
Crystals to resolve conflict: celestite, jasper, lapis lazuli, and obsidian.
Heightened Sense of Self-Image
With Mars projecting extremities upon everything and Aquarius being a sign of perception - your self image may fracture a bit. Your level of vanity may exceed what's healthy and be amplified by a need to be perfect in front of others. You are beautiful and your friends know it. You know it.
Crystal to improve self esteem: moss agate, alexandrite, cat's eye, citrine, fuchsite, and hematite.
The Moon is trine Jupiter. Jupiter is screaming at you to gain more knowledge for growth and improvement, while a trine aspect is whispering "you have everything you need". You've been putting in the work, educating yourself, developing a practice, and discipline. Yet, that nagging voice of self-doubt is trying to knock you down. Not today honey. All that effort is paying off. You are growing, you just haven't realized it yet.
Crystals for self doubt: chalcedony, muscovite, green chlorite phantom, and topaz.
