The Full Aquarius Moon: 15th August 2019
Welcome to your first hint of a very, very new existence, until the year 2043, believe it or not. It’s not ‘the’ Age of Aquarius, but it’s a New Age of Aquarius and it starts small. Taking place at 1.29pm (London) on Thursday 15th August, the Full Moon at 22 Aquarius will fall exactly opposite the Sun at 22 Leo and trigger soul-searching about the last two years, 2017 and 2018, when we saw so much karma rotate, as the South Node also moved through Aquarius. In a moment I’ll look at how you were affected.
Aquarius rules networks and people power – so this Full Moon on 15th August will immediately call in major issues, dating from the last two years, for political parties: Democrats, Republicans, Labour, Conservatives, Liberals, Liberal Democrats – all around the world.
Along with the South Node in Aquarius, we also had eclipses stretching across the Aquarius axis of the heavens – so we have had a whole chain of cover-ups and information blackouts involving our politicians in 2017-2018. Other organisations, like the United Nations and European Union, have also led us on a blind pathway. They are also ruled by Aquarius.
We will find out just how many cover-ups there were, involving these political parties, or organisations, during the eclipses of 11th February 2017, January 31st, 2018, February 15th, 2018, July 27th, 2018. All these dates are part of a pattern. I mention the dates because you may find they turn up, within a window of 72 hours, in news stories that start to appear near August 15th. If so, you’ll know the astrology is talking to you.
Mysteries Never to Be Revealed
Some of these 2017-2018 mysteries, involving these political parties, or global organisations, will never be solved. But – they will pave the way for a completely different political and world system when the New Age of Aquarius begins, on Sunday 20th December 2020. What we are going to see is D-Day followed by a long break, then in about 16 months, a huge political change. A drama. Why ?Jupiter and Saturn are both going into Aquarius at the same time!
Good Drama or Bad Drama?
Both. Jupiter is about repair work, problem-solving, expansion and growth. Saturn is about hard karma, life lessons and reality checks. Because the date that Jupiter enters Aquarius to join Saturn also happens to be highly unusual, in coding terms – a repeat of the digits 0, 1 and 2 – you can bet that this is a date which has been handpicked (nothing directly to do with astrology) by people who want to use the worldwide web to bring about radical changes in world politics. Remember that date, 20th December 2020, but also the way it looks when written numerically! 20122020 (British) or 12202020 (American).
Your Horoscope and the New Age of Aquarius
Between December 20th, 2020, and December 28th, 2021, you will experience Jupiter and Saturn both in Aquarius, in the following area of your life (below). In a moment I’ll take a look at your personal birth chart, which you will have on screen now, if you are a Premium Member. If you have any factors in Aquarius in your Eleventh House of friendships and groups, you will be strongly affected.

What follows is the broad weather for you, starting in December 2020 and ending in December 2021. There will be a sneak preview on this Full Moon on 15th August 2019, about exactly the same issues. At that point, you will become aware of just how many blind spots or cover-ups regarding these aspects of your life there were, in the years 2017 and 2018.
I hope you can see this is a long-range cycle. It reaches back into your past and it also predicts your future. It’s very much about the way you relate to societies, associations, teams and so on, as the person who is involved, and yet also on the outside looking in. You play your part, and without you, these friends and acquaintances would not have so much power at their disposal – and yet you are also detached from it. This is a classic Aquarius placement signature. And it’s important, if you have anything in that sign.
Your Sun Sign and the New Age of Aquarius
You may or may not have Aquarius factors in your chart, but your usual Sun Sign (below) will show you the area of life where you hit D-Day near August 15th, 2019, and also catch up with the last two years. This is also where your life is set to transform, permanently, from December 20th, 2020 – until the year 2043.
Aries: Friendships, clubs, teams, associations, societies, trade unions, social media, your social life, political parties, causes.
Taurus: Success, ambition, social position, rank, status, career, achievement, goals, class, promotion, titles, roles, qualifications.
Gemini: Foreigners and foreign countries, travel, holidays and vacations, the worldwide web, education, academia, publishing.

Why the 2019 Aquarius Full Moon Matters
A Full Moon is always D-Day: it is a point of peak and critical decision-making. On a Full Moon, the Sun is exactly opposite the Moon in your horoscope. Like any opposition, it describes inner conflict (yours) or external conflict, with two sides, two points of view, or even two polar opposites.
This particular Full Moon on 15th August 2019 is the most important of the year, because it triggers strong feelings, needs and emotions in yourself – or the people and organisations around you – which in turn, will show you exactly how much you did not know, and could not possibly see, over the last two years.
Her Majesty the Queen and the Full Moon
Once again, this will be in relation to the area of your life listed above. To give you some examples – we have confirmed horoscope data for the British royal family (which is unusual; very few high-profile people have accurately recorded birth information). Alois Treindl’s website astro.com is the most trusted internet source for the data and charts.
At a glance, you can see that Her Majesty the Queen, a Sun Taurus, has just come out of two years of cover-ups and blind spots, regarding her own role – as monarch. She has been chauffeured in a Rolls-Royce without headlights or streetlights, on a pathway she has now finished. Yet – this Full Moon on 15th August will make her aware of that.
Charles, Her Majesty and the Christmas Message 2020
Huge decisions will affect her future path, when the New Age of Aquarius begins on 20th December 2020. In fact, it will utterly transform both her reign and the direction taken by her family.
How can we say that? Because Prince Charles is a Sun Scorpio. The Aquarian ‘weather’ is about his family. His residence. His country. Therefore, this Full Moon on 15th August 2019 in London at 1.29pm, takes place over a very important lunch, for both. Watch and wait.
Check Your Personal Birth Chart
If you are a Premium Member, you will have your personal birth chart (available above) with all the asteroids, planets and other factors of modern astrology. Look at anything at all that falls in Aquarius in your Eleventh House of friendships and groups, because there is a second story taking place in your life. (If you are a Sun Aries, it will be the same saga, but with twice as much intensity).
Essentially, this Full Moon on 15th August will draw your attention to particular old friends, some more recent new friends, revived friendships – but very much the groups which affect you so much. These may be Twitter communities or something much more formal, like an ensemble cast for the theatre, or an environmental organisation, or a charity.
Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself, as I have readers on different sleep cycles from Auckland to Los Angeles, but in general, the 14th, 15th, 16th of August is D-Day.
What You Missed About Your Friends or Groups
From this will come a heightened awareness of just how patchy the information was, about friends or groups, over the last two years. And also from this, will come some astonishing new decisions, just before Christmas Day 2020, which affect your life (and theirs) in the year 2021.
If you do happen to have anything at Aquarius 22 (so, for example, if you look at your chart and see the Sun at 22 Aquarius 10, or you see Minerva at 22 Aquarius 29) then this Full Moon is going to alter your life path. It falls right on 22 Aquarius, you see, and it also picks up an eclipse on 11th February 2017, two long years ago, when the Full Moon at 22 Leo opposed the Sun at 22 Aquarius. If you do have this 22 Aquarius pattern, it will chime with a couple of realisations for you regarding your friend, or the group, that will lead to a huge solution or opportunity in March 2021, October 2021, November 2021. In fact, October that year is unforgettable.
Pluto in Aquarius – 24th March 2023
On 24th March 2023 (allow a day either side for the world to catch up with all its different time zones and sleep cycles) you begin the longest, slowest, most important transformation of your life – concerning the area of your world I mentioned, in connection with your Sun Sign or regular zodiac sign (above).
Pluto is a symbol of power and control, redistributed. This planet is associated with a deep change in the balance of power and once Pluto has made his mark, over many years, there is no going back. This cycle will empower you, if you use your willpower. It will give you control, if you use your self-control. It will be the making of you, in relation to the area of life I mentioned at the beginning of this feature – but only if you pull your own strings. Command your own journey. Run your own show. It’s not for the faint-hearted!
Back and Forth to 2025
Pluto goes back and forth between his new sign, Aquarius, and his old sign, Capricorn, until the year 2025. That really is the start of a new world era. In fact, you can safely predict that we will see the beginning of a new world government, across all genders, ages, nationalities, races – as Ceres is also in Aquarius, in December 2024 and January 2025.
This is now five or six years into the future, as I sit writing this on my yacht, the Lynnie Gemini, in Sussex on the coast of Britain. It’s really clear to see, though, that following all the Aquarius weather (which begins with that Full Moon in Aquarius on 15th August 2019) we are going to well and truly be in a new era of Aquarian thinking. So – community, diversity and equality – worldwide.
No Room for Sexism or Racism
There is no room for sexism or racism with Aquarius. It is the sign of the water-bearer in Rome who supplied the community baths. It is about pooling resources. It is about tolerance. People power.
This incredible line-up in December 2024, January 2025 is quite obviously the start of a new era in American politics, as another election comes around. Nobody has ever seen anything like it in their lifetime, because nobody has ever seen a run of transits like this in Aquarius.
Dig the New Breed – Generation Aquarius
What we are going to see in December 2024, January 2025, is Venus, Ceres, Pluto, the Sun, the New Moon, Mercury all in Aquarius, all triggering the personal birth charts of millions of young people who were born in 1998-2003. They call them Millennials.
They grew up reading Harry Potter and have been powerfully influenced by J.K. Rowling’s ideas about diversity, equality and community. They were also born with Uranus and Neptune in Aquarius. They are on the planet – to make sure we all share the planet. We have never seen anything like them. Nobody alive, apart from this generation, has Uranus and Neptune in Aquarius – and they haven’t even started.
You can predict the end of the two-party system in global politics (prevalent in countries from the United States, to Australia, to Britain and India) at this time. Two party politics is over. Bring on multi-groups, independents and a completely different way of sharing power. Dateline: New Moon in Aquarius, 29th January 2025. By then, when we look back at 2019, it will look like the last age of the great dinosaurs!
Educated to Change the World
Gen Aqua, as I call them, are astonishing teenagers and very new young adults – as they have been educated to change the world, via the worldwide web, and its language translation, (crucial to the new planet) and its Skype and YouTube campaigns on climate emergency. They are not like anybody else. They don’t do gender. They don’t do ageism. They are also leading a huge global campaign of school strikes to let their Presidents, Prime Ministers and politicians know that they are thinking – as one planet, on climate emergency.
That last point is important, because it is really clear from the astrology that we are headed for rising sea levels, flooding (Neptune in Pisces until the year 2025) and a shocking series of changes in food and farming (Uranus in Taurus, also until the year 2025).
I hope you can see how this is going to work. A strongly Aquarian generation of Millennials, who are ideally suited to one-world government are ready to vote – but also stand as political candidates – ready for the year 2025, when we finally see an end to what will, by then, have been a long and critical period of climate emergency. Their way of thinking is the future and the solution. They are going to use the web to do it, across all languages and time zones.
Your Aquarian Factors and Millennials
People born 1998-2003 are currently (as I write this in 2019) aged around 16-21 and they are a demographic that nobody in politics around the world has experienced before. They are going to vote…and vote…and vote. And they are going to vote locally but think globally. Their commitment to diversity, equality and community will also span sexual preferences – gay, lesbian, transgender – everybody is in the pool together, when Aquarian thinkers rule.
If you have Aquarian factors then this generation will strongly affect your life, as they grow into adulthood, in a New Age of Aquarius, as Jupiter, Saturn and then Pluto transit this sign. This triggers their horoscopes and yours. There’s a big bond here. Maybe you have already found it with teenagers in your life now!
Goodbye Old Age of Capricorn
In order for the New Age of Aquarius to begin, the Old Age of Capricorn has to crumble. We are seeing this now in August 2019.
Capricorn is about tradition, the establishment, corporations, solid structures, fear of change and ‘the system’ above all else. It is very much about old white men in suits and ties, at the top. That is going to be well and truly wiped out in January 2020. You just do not get past Pluto, the South Node, the Sun, Mercury, Saturn, Ceres and Jupiter in Capricorn without the beginning of the end.
This clears the way for a completely different kind of politics around the world, when we will see an unprecedented number of female, non-white, young people coming into power in 2025. (Them in particular, the least represented group at the top).
About The (Famous) Age of Aquarius
Ever since the late nineteenth century, astrology fans have been touting The Age of Aquarius as the historian, author and academic Nick Campion points out. Actually, it’s more accurate to say there are several. When slow-moving outer planets cluster together in the sign of Aquarius, it’s an era – a trend – very much about that sign. Nothing to do with the musical Hair, but everything to do with the astrological climate.
The Rainbow Circle Astrology Camp of 1998 picked that year as their start date for ‘The Age of Aquarius’ – and the distinguished British astrologer and author Margaret Hone chose the year 2000, soon after that. This is around the time the Millennials started arriving. Not only the slow-moving planets Uranus and Neptune, but also the South Node of karma, passed through Aquarius in the year 2000. Somewhere between Jonathan Cainer’s Rainbow Camp friends and Margaret Hone’s sturdy textbooks on astrology, we have what looks like consensus. A definite Aquarius ‘bump’ around 2000.
The Birth of the Worldwide Web
I am sure you can spot the other obvious giveaway – the birth of something people were calling ‘the net’ – or the ‘information superhighway’ at this time, as the Nineties came to an end. It was given to the world by Britain’s Tim Berners-Lee, free, to make the world a better place. It never fulfilled its potential, because Generation Aquarius were infants at the time. Soon, though, they will be ready for a waiting planet.
The babies who become the adults who vote, en masse, but also run for positions of power, as they cross the threshold into adulthood near 2025 – grew up with computers. They know how to use memes, viral messages, apps and the rest.
And that’s how we arrive at a New Age of Aquarius (replacing the other substantial Aquarian era, around 2000) which will well and truly replace what is a – currently – crumbling Capricorn system of old white men at the top. Penny Thornton, the well-known astrologer, author and my colleague in the Sun Sign School, recently described this new period in our lives as ‘the Twenties’. It really will feel like an era.
In Summary – The Full Moon of August 15th, 2019
- Like any Full Moon, this is D-Day but with a difference: it will directly concern an area of your life where you experienced concealed or missing information – or failed to see the facts – in the years 2017-2018. The Aquarius-ruled house of your chart will tell you who, what, why and where.
- As Aquarius is the zodiac sign which rules political parties and global organisations like the U.N. and the E.U. we can expect all of them (or most of them) to be drawn into this D-Day Full Moon. The results of this will be ongoing and change the world in 2021.
- The Aquarius weather in your chart, goes back to 2017-2018, peaks in August 2019, then returns to you from December 20th, 2020, when Jupiter and Saturn go into Aquarius together. From the year 2023 when Pluto goes into Aquarius, you will well and truly have seen one area of your life remodeled, questioned, reshaped and transformed – for the ages. This process will not be over until Pluto finally leaves Aquarius in 2043. Twenty years! You will never forget ‘The Twenties’ either personally, or in terms of what you see happening in your country, and around the world.
- Generation Aquarius, also called Millennials, were born with Uranus and Neptune in the sign of diversity, community and equality. They will vote in vast numbers, but also stand for positions of power, ready for the year 2025 when we see an intense period of Aquarius weather follow a recent American election.
- We can assume this generation will finally end the gun crisis in the United States, as Gen Aqua will rise in power, just as Neptune in Aries (the sign which rules guns) is ready to pass over the old position of Saturn in Aries – in the astrological chart timed for the legal ‘right to bear arms’. As Neptune dissolves whatever it touches, this will completely erode the old pro-gun constitution.
Welcome to the Twenties. In the smallest but most significant way, so much of what you are set to experience in this New Age of Aquarius can be traced back to the developments clustering around August 15th, 2019. That’s an unforgettable Full Moon.
