This lunation, Venus is on the move from July 21 to August 15, and this is going to change the tone of things in our private lives. We’ve been swimming in a Cancer season, and so has Venus, but now she is looking toward the high flying lifestyle of Leo – dramatic, fun, and sexy. You may have been feeling the friction at home before when you were just trying to relax with a good book and a summer cocktail. Turns out, you may have been a bit ahead of yourself.
The full moon blossoms and will take your career with it when it meets Saturn there – you will be met with challenges. It can feel ruthless, depressing, constraining, and just as though you’re stuck in a rut. In order to get your spinning wheels unstuck, you may want to look at things differently and be less rigid in your plans. Learn how to bend instead of break and you will get more accomplished. These next few weeks will appreciate your shift in attitude, as Saturn will want you to build something that lasts.
The New Moon on July 9 may have forced us to look in the mirror, and we weren’t ready for what we saw there. This mood may have carried into other areas, for though the moon is courting that 1st degree in Aquarius where we let our freak flag fly, it may seem like you’re being picked on or forced into contrary directions. Every time you push your comfort zone, you’re getting pushed back.
If life feels boring and banal, the Aquarius full moon won’t stand for it. The Full Moon comes just in time to remind you of what is important and catapult you into change. During the full moon, the Sun, the ruler of your outer self, forms an exact opposition to the Moon. That uncomfortable look into the mirror you had on July 9th may be back again to shed light on the things we weren’t ready to address.
If you feel the desire to let go of something in your life during this Full Moon, you can start to get an intuitive pull or inspiration that a change is underway. This change may feel immaterial at the time of this Moon, but don’t worry, the next Aquarius Full Moon in August will help you see things more clearly.
This month’s full moon will offer something to everyone, regardless of sign. The gift of the full moon in Aquarius will come to us in the form of new experiences, an opportunity to walk through the door to new worlds awaiting us. This Full Moon in Aquarius will help you embrace your true best self and drive out the haters. Embrace yourself! And all that makes you unique, as Aquarius will highlight those qualities of yourself that make you special. That evening of July 23 and into the 24, we will reach the climax of the lunar cycle with a full moon in the sign of Aquarius. This is one of only two Aquarian full moons that we will experience over the next month. They will work together in harmonic dance. We will find out what shakes us up when an Aquarian full moon is associated with the next full moon on August 22.
The two-month transit ends on September 20, shifting the focus back to home, family and committed relationships. This week the sun exits dreamy, watery Cancer and enters the glamorous constellation Leo, and we come out of the energy building we had in Aquarius during the first two Full Moons as we move forward to enjoy those we love and plan for what is to come. This week’s energy feels fast as we move from one chapter to another, and the breath of fresh air that arrives with the full moon is when we realize that we are who we are supposed to be.
Pluto amplifies this energy, and we may have experiences that heighten our sense of the mysterious, the magical, and the ethereal. Enjoy the feeling! This will not only improve our lives without work or compromise and bring more domestic, family and committed relationships into our lives, but also bring more work into the transformation and growth of these areas in the coming months. With the Sun and Moon facing each other 180 degrees, July’s Full Moon will shine in all its glory.
You may feel driven to produce or engage in extra activity, and experience a level of ambition that makes you want to succeed. This may also lead to friction and frustration if you do not achieve that success, so check to make sure you haven’t set the bar too high and learn to engage in gratitude for what you already have while you’re shooting for the stars – you can do both! Take some time to relax while you’re conquering the world.
