What does it all mean?
Aquarius is “different”, he is ahead of his time and capable of thinking and “seeing” things in a different way then the rest of us.
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of shock and chaos.
We may feel may inclined towards kindness, especially on a “global” level or towards animals, the elderly and those worse off.
Getting along with our four-legged friends may be on the top of our list now.
The time may be right to understand/learn about new technology, such as a new phone, tablet or t.v.
This moon period can bring out the rebel in us, prompting us to try new things and or meet new people.
Be careful not to break tradition just because one feels like being different or as some may see it, “difficult” Teenagers may feel the need to express themselves, so parents be for warned.
Personal freedom and individuality is very important now. Partner’s try not to restrict each other’s movements. Parent’s it might be a tight line you walk now. Employer’s give your “worker’s” a little “slack”.
Being organized might not be as easy now, so expect weird schedule’s and interrupted meetings…
Changes may be in the air…
Could be a good time for inventions… Perhaps keeping them to paper until Mercury has turned direct 😉
This months Aquarius moon may be good for: Borrowing money: Moving: Painting: Pouring cement: Purchasing big appliances: and starting diets.
This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those with strong Leo placing in their charts.
Moon in Aquarius
Sun in Aquarius
Uranus in Aquarius
Moon in the 11th house
Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Aquarius
Any aspects to the Moon.
**NOTE: Full Moon is on Monday August 3rd at 11:59 am (ET) 8:59 am (PT)
A Full Moon in Aquarius will emphasize the traits of an Aquarius moon…
The full moon can represent endings, closure or completions for some of us… And while endings can be painful, the “newness” they present can be euphoric…you just gotta “weather the storm”:)
Because Aquarius is attached to the 11th house of Friends, Hobbies, teams and sometimes the community via doing good deeds… The endings/completions during this month’s full moon, may be related to such activities or people.
Aquarius can be responsible for inventions and brilliant ideas, and so for some, this month’s full moon may mean the completion of any such fantastic and novel ideas… hmmm wouldn’t it be marvelous if that meant finding an end to COVID-19? 😉
In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂
The Moon Void-off-Course:
There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void off Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void off Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-off-Course moon…
Good for Void-Off-Course Moon:
These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.
Opportunity Periods (thanks to astrologer Jim Shawvan):
There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods.
Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.
