Full Moon Aquarius: Who Am I?

Full Moon Aquarius

Full Moon [1 Aquarius 26]

July 24, 2021 (03:37 GMT+1)

There is a significant Full Moon taking place this weekend. Traditionally, Full Moons are a time for celebration. Emotions are heightened and the Full Moon lights up the night sky extending the hours outside of darkness. More time to play and work outside, less sleep.

In the lunar cycle, the Full Moon represents culmination, ripeness, fertility when the light of the Moon is at its brightest. It’s a powerful time to trust your intuition, especially if you have a big decision to make. Full Moons favour ritual, looking at how far you’ve come and deciding what you’re ready to let go of or release.

A Significant Full Moon

This weekend’s Full Moon is especially significant for two reasons. Firstly, it falls at 1 Aquarius, close to the degree of the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0 Aquarius which took place on December 20, 2020.

Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions herald the start of a new 20 year chapter and in Aquarius this is about technology, science, space travel, social reform, themes involving the collective.

Wherever the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction fell in your horoscope, that point is being triggered right now. What’s coming to culmination or completion in your life?

Secondly, this is the first of two Full Moons in Aquarius. This phenomenon happens approximately every couple of years as the Moon cycle shifts in relation to the zodiac. Usually, each Full Moon is in the following star sign and you have one Full Moon in each star sign once a year.

Next month’s Full Moon takes place on August 22nd and falls at 29 Aquarius. Therefore, this month’s Full Moon is at the beginning of the star sign and next month’s Full Moon is at the end of the star sign. There may be a smaller cycle in your life coming to completion in one month’s time.

Leo/Aquarius Axis

When you’re considering a Full Moon, it’s important to note the signs involved. This month and next, the Sun will be in Leo and the Moon in Aquarius, star signs which oppose one another across the zodiac.

You may notice that opposite star signs have a common theme or require some kind of integration. As with all oppositions, you may go too far in one direction, whereas ideally it’s important to be aware of both and consider how you can tend to them equally.

The Sun shines bright in Leo and the essence of Leo is to be at the heart of proceedings, the centre of attention. The big cat of the zodiac thrives when it receives plenty of stroking, accolade and admiration. Leo is a creative sign, so this is about your identity, your unique skills and talents, what makes you ‘you’.

Whereas Aquarius represents the collective rather than the individual. The Sun finds it hard to shine in Aquarius because it has to share the limelight. This isn’t about self-interest. Aquarius represents what’s best for everyone, common goals, a shared mission or purpose.

You may experience issues around fitting in or being an outsider during this Full Moon. Where do you belong, who can you team up with to achieve mutual goals?

Do you find your light is dimmed if you compare yourself unfavourably to others, if other people don’t get who you are, if your contribution goes unwanted? Are you on the outside looking in?

Alternatively, are you ready to shine bright, share your natural talents with the world, make a difference? This is an important time to consider the groups you belong to, your friendships, your associations.

You may decide to leave or move on from one set and find a new group or alliance. As with all oppositions, we can either focus on what divides us or work together to create unity out of polarity.

These themes are already resonant within our society but there may be significant ways how they play out for you personally. It’s an ideal Full Moon to ask those all-important questions, ‘Who am I and where do I belong?’

What It Means For You

Here are the areas of your life which are being highlighted by this week’s Full Moon.

  • Leo: Personal goals & self care – relationships & one-on-one partnership
  • Virgo: Retreat & recuperation – work, service, health & fitness
  • Libra: Friends, groups & networks – self-expression, creativity, children & love affairs
  • Scorpio: Career & vocation – home & family
  • Sagittarius: Travel & exploration – being busy close to home, neighbours & siblings
  • Capricorn: Other peoples’ money & joint resources – personal possessions & values
  • Aquarius: Relationships & one-on-one partnership – personal goals & self care

The Astrology of this week July 17 – July 22.

 

First quarter moon speaks of taking actions that launch from the new moon.  The cancer new moon from ten days ago focuses on our emotions and feelings.  We dig down, now on first quarter moon and do actions based on those feelings/emotions.   No one is saying it is easy by the way.  Also on the 17th, Sun oppose Pluto pushes hard on being responsible and figuring out what to do with our emotions when we have to ‘step up.’   On the 20th, the waxing moon moves into gibbous, where we refine our information and our feelings.   In this case we refine via the Sagittarius moon and expand our world.  We look at our philosophies and judgements and see if they are in sync with our emotions.  On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Leo.  Leos will start to roar!

VENUS & MARS conjunction July 13.

 

Forbes JULY 8, 2021

 

…Venus and Mars in Leo form a conjunction on July 13.   The last time these two planets were in conjunction in Leo was August of 2015.   We may feel an echo off that summer during this cycle.   This conjunction is part of three, the next two Venus/Mars conjunctions will be Feb 16 at 17 Capricorn and the final one will be on March 6 at Zero Aquarius.    On the basic, astrology 101, our two closest planets (from Earth), speak of love and values and receptivity (Venus) and war/action and aggressiveness (Mars).  Love and action come together.  In Leo this speaks to that which makes our heartbeat.  Leo is our creativity, art, passion, love, drama, play, joy and heart driven activity.    I could blow through this conjunction and give you a one liner that would be accurate, but I am going to stop down on this one a bit more because my gut (Cancer) is telling me to do it.  Next month on the Leo new moon I will echo some of this language but with Venus/Mars conjunction in Leo and the sextile to the Cancer New Moon, we need to start connecting to the Leo energy.    

 

 

Do you know anyone in your life who has unfettered passion?  He or she has a drive and come hell or high water they do it?  I have a son who has a passion for airplanes no less than Richard Branson.  He takes endless trips to LAX to photograph this plane land, another plane take off, each special for reasons only known to him and his plane spotter friends. They gather on a hill talk with passion like they are seeing a plane for the first time and by the way, the are of all ages.   I also have a husband who loves running, swimming and biking.   The miles he covers in all three activities every week, would make the average person shake their head.   I, of course have my own passions, writing, researching, not just astrology but other topics.   I can go just as deep as the other members of our household.   I know from personal experience that having a thing and running with it keeps the heart going.  My friends use to laugh when I got super excited by the arrival of a death certificate when I was deep in geneaology. Being excited about something taps a vitality in us.     Are you tapping your own interest?  Where is your thing?  Are you running with it?   Have your ‘things’ been put on the back burner?  Is it time to find a new thing?   Or are you telling yourself that your thing is stupid?  A waste of time?  Or  that you aren’t that good/knowledgeable/not enough to run with the thing?  Did you know the word amateur comes from the word amore ?  Meaning to  do something out of love.    

 

 

Now is the time to find and spark your passion.  After one helluva a year, the Venus/Mars conjunction in Leo may have more meaning to all of us than the conjunction in 2015 and it could be important as we roll into the other two conjunctions.  The fire that is activated in our belly now could be put through practical application (perhaps even make money) at Feb’s conjunction in Capricorn and be well received by our circles and community in March at zero Aquarius.    Take time this cycle to let Venus and Mars talk to you.  

 

New Moon Cancer: Welcome Home

New Moon [18 Cancer 02]

– July 10, 2021 (02:17 GMT+1)

During a New Moon, the Sun and Moon sit side by side in the same sign at the same degree. This month, the Moon is most powerful in her sign of rulership Cancer.

The Moon is the significator for women and the mother in astrology and Cancer is the nurturing, maternal sign. This is a fertile New Moon ripe with potential.

Cancer is the sign that pulls you back to your roots, draws your attention to your home and your family. You seek out comfort, somewhere to nest so you feel safe and secure.

Wherever the New Moon falls in your horoscope, this is where you feel the urge to retreat, be in your comfort zone, make things comfortable and cosy.

The New Moon in Cancer is the perfect time to set your intentions for the month ahead, especially in the areas of home, family, your past and where you come from.

The New Moon is initiating a new cycle, an ideal time to start over, organise a family event, focus on a home move or domestic project.

The Outer Planets

This feels like a significant New Moon as it links in to the three outer planets, Uranus, Neptune & Pluto. Big changes afoot, a meaningful transition.

The Sun in Cancer (18 degrees) is separating from Uranus in Taurus (14 degrees), bringing a theme of change. The Sun in a water sign aligns with sentimental Neptune in Pisces (23 degrees), a perfect time to revisit your hopes and dreams.

The Sun’s wide opposition to Pluto in Capricorn (25 degrees) is a reminder that when you begin something new, inevitably you have to leave something else behind. It’s the nature of things.

Linking In To The Eclipse Cycle

This New Moon feels particularly powerful as it’s the first pure New Moon in Cancer since 2017. In 2018, 2019 & 2020, the New Moon in Cancer was a Solar Eclipse.

Therefore, this New Moon in Cancer and the Full Moon in Capricorn two weeks ago on June 24th may be linked to the powerful Cancer-Capricorn eclipse cycle that began in July 2018 and completed in July 2020.

It’s obvious symbolism in my life as we sold our family home in November 2018 and I’ve been embarking on a major new chapter in my life ever since.

To confirm the importance of the current Full Moon/New Moon fortnight, two weeks ago on the day of the Full Moon I left the flat I’d been living in for a few months.

I’ve been on a road trip this last fortnight visiting friends and family. On Monday 12th, two days after the New Moon I start another temporary stay in a new home. Divine timing? It feels like it.

The Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac cuts across the MC/IC axis in my horoscope, the foundations of the chart ruling work & home, your past & your future path. The Full Moon on June 24th fell exactly on my MC/IC and off I went.

The fact that we bought our family home during the last Cancer/Capricorn eclipse cycle in 2000/2002 completes the circle and emphasises the importance of this period in my life.

Discovering what home or family mean to you personally is one way that this New Moon could benefit you. For example, I don’t currently have my own home through choice, yet I understand more powerfully the meaning of home and family in my life.

I’ve been welcomed in to other people’s homes & families time & again recently and the power of the quote below resonates completely with me. The derivation of the word ‘planet’ also means ‘wanderer’.

New Moon Cancer, wanderer

Here’s a quick guide to where this New Moon falls in your horoscope. Read both your Sun & Ascendant signs:

  • Cancer – personal goals, image & identity
  • Leo – your inner world, retreat & sacrifice
  • Virgo – friends, groups & wider society
  • Libra – career & status, future path
  • Scorpio – global connections, travel & study
  • Sagittarius – joint finances & sexuality
  • Capricorn – love & relationships, contracts
  • Aquarius – job & health, service to others
  • Pisces – birth i.e. children, romance, creative projects
  • Aries – home & family, where you come from
  • Taurus – community, siblings & neighbours, communication
  • Gemini – money & assets, self-worth, values

Capricorn Horoscope July 2021

Capricorn July 2021, wheat, sun

Money Matters

The star sign Leo dominates this month and Leo rules joint finances and shared resources in your horoscope. It’s about money and financial partnerships.

Action planet Mars is dynamic and go-getting in this area of your horoscope and remains in Leo until the 29th. The planet of relating Venus is here too until the 22nd.

On its own, this promises a sound month for mixing love and money, business ventures and partnership. However, there are some caveats as tricky astrology kicks in during the first week of July.

This is when both Mars and Venus clash with your planet Saturn in Aquarius on the 1st & 7th respectively. Plus, Saturn isn’t acting alone as it’s square to unpredictable Uranus. Mars and Venus clash with Uranus on the 4th & 8th.

When your planet Saturn dominates, this could flag up a lack of cash or having to put firm boundaries in place around money. Add in Uranus and there could a financial issue regarding a child or lover.

This is feisty astrology when tempers could flare and you’re wise not to act impulsively. Instead, be patient, bide your time and give reassurance if necessary. Help someone out emotionally but be wary of getting involved financially.

If you’re looking for financial support, this could be a frustrating time. Yet, things do start to turn in your favour from mid-month onwards.

Turning Points

Firstly, there’s a Venus-Mars conjunction in Leo on the 13th. This combination is strong for both love & money, benefitting from a partner’s windfall or finding the right person to help or guide you.

Then, on the 22nd the Sun enters Leo followed by talk planet Mercury on the 28th. The Full Moon on the 24th also lights up the financial axis of your horoscope, ideal for finding a solution to a money problem. Create the right partnerships in your life this month and your prospects could prosper.

The biggest shift, however, is Jupiter’s move at the end of the month. On the 29th, big planet Jupiter retreats back into Aquarius and your money sector. Jupiter remains here until the end of the year and this often spells good news for money.

If you’re doing well, you might be the one being charitable and generous. Or, perhaps you’re the recipient of a gift or bonus. It indicates that the wheel of fortune is turning your way as July comes to a close.

Love & Relationships

The Sun is in Cancer and your relationship sector until the 22nd. Plus, talk planet Mercury is here from the 12th to the 28th. The stand-out date for relationships is the 10th when there’s a New Moon in Cancer, a symbol of new beginnings.

Then, two days later on the 12th Mercury teams up with lucky Jupiter in Pisces and your communication sector. This often signifies good news or a turning point when the wheel of fortune turns in your favour.

Do ensure this month that you get on the right side of the people who count. There will be times when you run up against challenges.

For example, there may be a love disappointment on or around the 17th when the Sun is opposed by power planet Pluto. Or, you end up on the losing side of a competition. Be wary of power games.

Note that the outcome of this month’s events aren’t entirely up to you. The majority of the planetary activity is currently taking place in Cancer and your opposite star sign. Therefore, at times other people will have control and you may have to follow rather than lead.

Caring & Compassion

Finally, Neptune is in Pisces and your communication sector and big planet Jupiter is here up until the 29th. This is a kind and compassionate influence, teaching you to listen, to be open-minded, caring and concerned.

You might take on a role as carer, coach or mentor this month and being kind and considerate to others can make a huge difference. You may be the one supporting others as they undergo major life shifts.

Seeking Pleasure

Up until the 22nd, the Sun is shining bright in Cancer, a fellow water sign. Plus, the Sun is joined by talk planet Mercury in Cancer from the 12th to the 28th.

Cancer rules one of the best sectors of your horoscope. It’s where you find pleasure and enjoy yourself. This is the sector ruling your hobbies and leisure activities. It’s about play primarily rather than work, entertainment and good times. Therefore, it’s important in July that you kick back and do more of what you love.

Cancer represents children and lovers in your horoscope. You might be enjoying yourself with the kids more than usual or be in the throes of a love affair. Close connections in your life are where joy can be found and, as a Sun Pisces, you love to connect with other people.

There are some key dates for love and relationships this month. Firstly, there’s a lovely New Moon in Cancer on the 10th, a symbol of new beginnings.

The New Moon is followed by some stunning astrology. Talk planet Mercury teams up with your ruler Jupiter in Pisces on the 12th and the Sun aligns with your co-ruler Neptune in Pisces on the 15th.

These combinations are gorgeous for being in love and making the most of life. Do something dreamy and special and step outside of your usual routine. There could be some luck or good fortune coming your way mid-month

One of your Pisces strengths is your ability to escape the humdrum and seek inspiration through music, poetry, art and beauty. This is a great month to remind yourself where inspiration lies. Whenever you feel down-hearted, actively embrace the remarkable.

Action Stations

The other area of your horoscope under the cosmic spotlight this month is represented by the star sign Leo. Action planet Mars is here until the 29th and the planet of relating Venus is in Leo until the 22nd. Leo rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and health.

These are the areas of your life where you’re wise to be pro-active, even if there are times when you get stopped in your tracks. The trickiest period is the first week in the month when Venus and Mars clash with the Saturn-Uranus square aspect.

The key dates are the 1st & 7th – Saturn and the 4th & 8th – Uranus. Saturn can slow you down or you encounter a block or obstacle in your life. Uranus is more volatile and unpredictable in your communication sector.

This could be a time when tempers flare but it’s wise not to act impulsively. Words might be spoken in haste and it will take a while for things to calm down. There could be an issue with work or health or technology.

Turning Points

Later in the month brings some turning points. Firstly, there’s a Venus-Mars conjunction in Leo on the 13th. Look out for the influential person who can help you either with regard to your work or your health.

Then, on the 22nd the Sun enters Leo and its sign of rulership followed by talk planet Mercury on the 28th. This is good for reconciliation and sorting out any difficult work relationships. Team work is important this month if you’re to make steady progress. Ensure you have a good support network around you.

The stand-out date is the 24th when there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac. Full Moons often coincide with completion or culmination. This could be when a job materialises or you get the answers you need to a health issue.

Try and keep a healthy work/life balance throughout July and don’t attempt to push too hard, until you know where success lies.

It’s an intriguing month of going with the flow and responding to life’s twists and turns as smoothly and thoughtfully as possible. Also, aim to forgive yourself and others when things don’t work out.

Jupiter’s Big Move

Finally, big planet Jupiter leaves your star sign Pisces on the 28th. You may have to shelve some ideas or plans until early 2022. Jupiter returns to Pisces at the end of this year.

Before it moves on, however, Jupiter makes a stunning opposition to Venus in Virgo on the 22nd. Again, this highlights love and relationships in your horoscope. A new chapter opening up. Make the most of any new opportunities that come your way.
