The Moon will be full in the sign of Aquarius on August 1st at 11:31 AM PDT. We look back to see when the Moon was new in this sign; January 21st, 2023. What were the goals set on this occasion, and how far have we come since then? At that time when the Sun and Moon shared the same degree, we were encouraged to detach, to be objective and see the bigger picture free of over emotionality. With this, objective clarity became the goal in whatever we were concerned with.
When the Moon is in Aquarius, we are not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously disconnected from our own and others' emotions. It's almost as if you could turn your feelings on and off at will so you should be careful not to leave the switch off too often, for you could easily become too impersonal. Family ties and attachments are not as important to you and you often consider your friends closer to you than your blood relatives. You insist upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as you choose. You do not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner. You feel comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and you have little taste for convention and tradition.
All that being said, Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac. Due to the nature of the sign it is easier to see all sides of a situation in an open minded way. To get to the heart of a situation, seeing clearly what needs to happen to find solutions. This brilliant Fixed Air Sign is of high humidity, meaning it is compassionate intellect. Aquarius is a teaching sign, an energy that has arrived at conclusions and seeks to share. Aquarians make great professors and mentors. The job of a fixed sign is to dig in, be persistent, and make changes. Ruled by Uranus, the planet of awakening, now is a perfect time to say what you mean and mean what you say. Do something about whatever needs changing.
The Sun and Moon both square Jupiter at 13 degrees Taurus. This creates a T-Square, with Jupiter being the outlet for the direction to take. On May 16th, 2023 Jupiter entered the sign of Taurus where it will stay until May 25th, 2024. While in this sign, Jupiter’s nature is to expand, to protect and to enlighten us in all things Taurus represents. This includes finances, pleasurable activities, creativity and beauty due to it being ruled by Venus. This provides us an opportunity to think outside the box in ways to ensure our own well being. Where the Sun and Moon are opposing in the axis of “me” versus “we”, planet Jupiter is all inclusive. It provides the world view of what is best for all of us if we follow its lead. So at this time you may receive a lucky break, a new way out of an otherwise limiting situation.
Take this idea to the next level. Where we have had limitations we can see freedom. We no longer wish to live under the thumb of any/all situations that make us feel small and insignificant. We don’t have to accept what we are told, we can look deeper with all of the knowledge we have gained, all of the exposure to what was told us was true that we no longer believe. We are being guided to learn, to seek new answers, and behave differently. Fear led the way in the last few years, now we are seeing those fears were not justified but told to us to keep us from the truth. And as always, the truth will set you free.
So with this Full Moon in Aquarius seek the freedom you desire in your life with optimism and clarity of purpose. Old dreams die by the wayside, as new hopes and wishes come to fruition. Just what was set in motion when the Moon was new can be actualized now. We’ve got the power, we’ve got the ambition, so don’t delay in your actions. Celebrate this day with the strength and power of truth as you find it, and keep your mind open to guidance from within that will light the way.
Thank you Judy for you wisdom!
