As the only Aquarius full moon of 2017 brightens up the skies at 2:10 p.m. EST, these future-forward moonbeams help us dream outside of the box. The Aquarius full moon is also a game-changing partial lunar eclipse and is known by some Native American tribes as the "Full Sturgeon Moon," since the sturgeon found in the Great Lakes were caught in abundance this time of year. Stargazers, rejoice: The Perseid meteor shower will also be visible at this lunation, reaching its peak on August 12.
The cosmos are already putting on quite a show in August, as the Aquarius lunar eclipse kicks off this month's eclipse season, culminating with a total solar eclipse at the Leo new moon on August 21. Astrologically speaking, we’ll feel the impact of both of these eclipses—no goggles required!
