Aquarius Full Moon
The Aquarius Full Moon is exact next Thursday morning at 2:27 AM PDT. It takes place at 25.53° Aquarius/Leo. This Full Moon focuses on the issues of other versus self. Moon in Aquarius concentrates on a concern for universal ideas and the social sphere of humanitarian concerns. Sun in Leo directs attention to personal creativity and the individual. The modern ruler of Aquarius is Uranus, the planet of eccentricity and rebellion. Uranus, at 24.21° Aries, is sextiling the Moon and trining the Sun, thus promising a really exciting, innovative and surprising Aquarius Full Moon. In honor of this, I will be offering my astrology readings at 50% off until August 31st. Aquarius and Leo are part of the fixed axis along with Taurus and Scorpio. The fixed axis is known for being stubborn and inflexible. The Full Moon is a time of culmination. Any Full Moon indicates that certain affairs will come to their natural conclusion. Both the Moon in Aquarius and the Sun in Leo ask that you express your unique spirit, particularly with Uranus, the planet of freedom involved. Today we have a potentially dangerous and depressing Venus/Neptune opposition at 10:03 AM. The best use of this influence is to escape into a dreamy fantasy, just keep it in your own mind and don’t act out in reality or take anything too seriously. Tuesday the Sun/Uranus trine that figures in the Aquarius Full Moon chart arrives at 1:23 PM, thereby opening the channels to divine inspiration. Wednesday brings a passionately intense Venus/Pluto trine at 7:17 PM, good for love and art. And Friday wraps up the week with a touchy Mercury/Chiron opposition at 5:07 AM.
Monday night from 7:45 PM we have a Void Moon in Capricorn until the Moon enters Aquarius at 4:52 AM Tuesday morning. Void Moon is the period when the Moon makes its last major aspect in one sign until it enters the next sign. In this case, Capricorn. It is a little like a Retrograde period and it is best to avoid important decisions, purchases, and signing contracts. Meetings and dates are often cancelled during the Void Moon, and announcements go by the wayside as if they were never made. Only one more difficult Void to watch out for occurs Thursday morning after the Aquarius Full Moon until the Moon enters Pisces at 9:34 PM.
