The Full Moon in Aquarius happens July 23rd or 24th depending on your location. This is the first of two Full Moons in the sign of Aquarius, what you initiate now may come to a true conclusion at the second one in August. The first Full Moon occurs at approximately 7:38 pm PST. Aquarius rules our ingenuity, the internet, being unique and eclectic, even electricity. It is an Air sign, so involves how we transmit our communications, hence the internet connection. It also represents our friend groups and networking, how we like to be part of a greater whole. With a full moon occurring in this sign we are bringing something with ties to these areas to conclusion or to fullness, like the moon. Uranus as the current ruling planet of Aquarius and in a yearlong square with original ruling planet, Saturn, means the endings can come about in surprising or abrupt ways.
The Moon in Aquarius will be at 1 degree, the symbol for a new beginning. The Sun will also be at 1 degree, but in the opposite sign of Leo. The Sun shines a light on the Moon, in an effort to highlight what is ready to be completed. Where the Moon energy is ready to take a final bow. Leo is the sign ruled by the Sun, so it is especially strong at home. Leo rules fun, hobbies, romance, children, and it is energy that most appreciates being on stage. It is not uncommon to have actors, artists, performers with significant Leo energy. This is a balance of the Me (Leo) versus We (Aquarius) energy. You are looking for a way to be a voice for the many, without hogging up all the limelight.
There are no other planets in direct alignment with the Sun or Moon during this Full Moon event. Jupiter and Venus are in opposition to one another and in what we call a semi-sextile, but 30 degrees away from the Sun for Venus and the Moon for Jupiter. This is easy energy, even the opposition between the 2 benefic planets isn’t considered harsh energy. Jupiter asks Venus to treat love and money with the highest of ideals. This not just about buying things or having sex. Jupiter wants you to connect at a deeper level. Use your money to help those less fortunate. Less focus on your own needs and more focus on the needs of others.
Jupiter in Pisces is at the critical 0 degree and in Retrograde. Pisces is the unseen, endings, believing is seeing with this sign. It is also our spirituality, intuition and psychic abilities. It is a water sign and connects our feelings with our artistry. There is something in this area you are taking a second look at and will take a third, once this moves forward in October of this year. It also is the sign that rules traditional medicine, and large institutions like hospitals. Jupiter rules expansion, far away places, foreign people and places. Some combination of these energies are combining in your chart and showing you something with the full moon.
Venus in Virgo is at 2 degrees of the sign. 2 rules balance, and partnership. Venus is love, money, values and beauty. Virgo is daily routines, work, service, pets, and health. Are you valuing your health enough? Are you looking to solve health problems? Venus is highlighting this for you now. How can you use the energy of the Full Moon to break free from bad eating habits that are making you unhealthy?
Saturn is at 10 degrees of Aquarius, which puts this at the very widest point possible of influencing the Full Moon. However, it is the original ruler of Aquarius, so while Its influence may be felt in a more subtle way, it is still noticeable. The Nodes are at 9 degrees and still making positive contact with Saturn. When we focus on following our life purpose goals we are going to be rewarded. When you focus on bringing this area of your life or life goals to a conclusion, again you have the potential for some kind of reward. Saturn is also still experiencing the sextile with Chiron, helping us stick to our healing plans, and square to Uranus, the other ruler of this Full Moon, helping us break out of routines that do not serve us. Tap into the plans Saturn has for you and you just might find you are finally able to stick to something you have so far been struggling with.
Mars and Pluto are making an odd angle to one another, called a Quincunx. You may be taking action to bring closure in your life in a very unique way. Pluto is retrograde and giving you a chance to work through something internal. The action Mars takes as a result of your inner work you have been doing, will be much more visible.
Giving us some more harmonious energy during the full moon is Mercury making a trine to Neptune, in retrograde. This is being able to share our thoughts and feelings in a positive and uplifting way. There may be a project from the past you decide to pick up and start again with this type of energy. Write the next chapter in the book, finish the painting, produce that song. Both of these planets are in watery emotional signs. Mercury in Cancer help us connect our feelings and thoughts. Neptune in Pisces, is the ruler of this sign. It is a bit more foggy and delusional than the high and mighty Jupiter, a secondary ruler of this sign. During this time you just might take off a pair of foggy glasses and see the reality of your current situation. And if you are ready to get out, break free, now is a good time.
See below for what you may be focused on based on your Sun, Moon or Rising sign. Don’t know what they are yet? You can easily create a free chart of a multitude of astrology sites.
Aquarius – in your first house you are concluding a personal goal. The Sun shines on your emotions from your 7th house of serious relationships and partnerships. You need to balance your needs with your partner’s needs, and remove the blocks that are keeping that from being a reality in your life. You can become a stronger more independent person when you stop relying on your partner to define who you are. It is certainly time to break free from being held back by your partner.
Capricorn – the 2nd house rules the money we make. The Sun is putting a spotlight on the money you get from others, like a spouse, a loan, a grant. The money you create yourself is needing to be balanced with the money you are getting from other sources. This could be a new job or new source of income, but it comes at the cost of cutting yourself off from this other source of income. If you rely too much on outside resources you can end up holding yourself back. Maybe it is time to cut the apron strings here.
Sagittarius – our 3rd house rules community, communication, local travel. With the Sun shining from your 9th house of higher education, faraway places and higher purpose. You could be ready to make a move locally. Maybe as a result of finishing your degree you are moving back home. You could even be in the market for new communication devices. Just make sure you are following a plan and not making impulse moves or purchases. This could be the month where you put all the finishing touches on your home or part of a building project.
Scorpio – the Sun will shine a light from the 10th house of career on your home life. This is another group that could be bringing something at home or about your home location to a conclusion. Perhaps you have a chance to move, relocate because of work, or figure out how to balance work and family now that you are no longer able to work from home. Someone could be moving in or out of your home because of something work related. Maybe it is as simple as getting a bonus from work that lets you complete a home project.
Libra – in the 5th house of fun, children, romance and hobbies you might be letting go of something in order to become a part of something bigger, like the Sun represents in the 11th house. These are the houses represented by the Full Moon, and so these signs may notice the impact the most. You can still have fun, but you also need to make sure you are connected to something more, make a difference in the lives of others. A romance that does not serve you may need to come to an end if your friends are not supporting the union for example.
Virgo – the 6th house brings a change at work, in our daily lives, with our health, maybe even impacts our pets. The Sun in the 12th house asks you to listen to your intuition about the changes you need to make in these areas. Or a big change in your organization may be impacting your current job. Just trust that all things are working out in your best interest. This is a good time to make plans to deal with any health issues, or resolve them once and for all.
Leo – the Moon in the 7th house rules our serious relationships, while the Sun is shining a spotlight from your first house of self. What changes do you need to make about your personal goals in order to achieve your relationship goals? Does that serious relationship you are in feel more like a codependent one than an interdependent one? There is a change coming and it may take the full month to unfold. Makeups and breakups are highlighted when you have a full moon in your 7th house. How it unfolds depends on whether your relationship is healthy or not.
Cancer – the 8th house rules our intimate partnerships, and the resources we receive from others. This is also the house of death and transformation. Maybe you don’t have to keep making all the money on your own, or maybe the way you make money needs to change and you can balance what you make with what you take. This is also a sign where we have to learn that we don’t get our values from others, or adopt their values just to keep peace. We need to be truly intimate with our partners, and that means letting down our walls and being genuine. This is also a time where if you have been working on getting a loan or financing of some kind it will get approved and conclude over the next 30 days.
Gemini – the 9th house is where we go to expand our horizons, be they virtual, or just mentally. We seek answers and want to open our minds to learning. The Sun in the 3rd house shows you how much you have already learned, but it’s time to take it to the next level. Expand our knowledge, as in completing a course of learning at a higher level. Planning that trip abroad and breaking free from our local communities. You might need to let go of a way of thinking in order to push yourself and grow.
Taurus – the 10th house represents our career and our standing in the world, how others see us. You may be concluding something in your current career. Making a job change of some kind. This can also be about your marital status and making some sort of change there. If single maybe you are ready to get married, if married maybe you are wanting to get divorced. The 4th house where the Sun is says something at home is calling you to make a change, or someone in your family is heavily influencing you.
Aries – the 11th house of friends, networking, and benefactors can help you find your tribe. It can also help you realign yourself with the right tribe, where you are able to make a better fit. The Sun in your 5th house of fun and romance may help you see best where you do actually fit in. You could meet someone as a result of your hobbies that ends up playing an important role in your life. You just have to remember to balance fun and responsibilities.
Pisces – in the 12th house your outcome of this full moon is a bit more emotional and hidden. There could be secrets brought to the surface. There could be subconscious blocks removed as a result of adopting a daily meditation practice. The Sun is in your 6th house of health and daily routines, shining a light in the darkness of the 12th house. Can you get through all of those emotional triggers this month and be set free? Can you clear that past life karma and finally be released? Or are you going to just keep running around being super busy and ignoring that voice in your head? You know the truth here and it’s time to act on it.
