Astro Alert: Full Moon In Aquarius Incoming!•
Posted on July 21 2021
On the 23rd, an electric Aquarius Full Moon brings deep feelings to the surface, supporting us to reflect on our unique gifts and on the way that we can fit in with the rest of the world while still being ourselves.
This Moon can highlight what we’ve achieved together with our soul tribe or on our own, following an impulse toward change and progress, but it can also bring up connections, attitudes, and emotions that need to be transformed to allow for more freedom and authenticity in our lives.
Full Moon in Aquarius: July 23
July’s Full Moon in the first degrees of unpredictable Aquarius brings up themes around change, transformation, and community. This is the sign that fights for social justice, dreams of a utopian future, and is always one step ahead of the crowd. How have you been manifesting this innovative, freedom-loving side of you since the last Aquarius New Moon in February?
Especially for those of us with strong Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius energy, this Full Moon can bring results and turning points when it comes to friendships, community-related projects, or innovative interests. Efforts to connect with others, to follow our ideals, and to make a positive contribution to society are finally bearing fruit! Now is also a time when we can see the bigger picture of what we’ve started around February, connecting the dots and realizing what worked and what needs to be improved. Some insights might take us by surprise, helping us gain a different perspective.
When we’re talking about Leo and Aquarius, we’re trying to see how we can fit in while staying true to our uniqueness. The Leo Sun wants to shine, to stand out from the crowd, and to fully enjoy the moment, while the Aquarius Moon reflects a deeper need for belonging and merging with others to follow a long-term ideal.
Many of us could come together with our soul tribe at this time or gain more clarity about how our talents and gifts can make a positive impact on the world. On the downside, feeling left out, disconnected from others, or unappreciated for who we are might be some sources of frustration during this Full Moon, especially since we’re dealing with heavier influences from Saturn and Pluto. This can be a good time to reflect on the need to belong, the courage to be authentic despite peer pressure, or the ways we seek love and attention from those around us.
Since Leo is the inner child, attempts to show off, to distance ourselves from others, or to feel superior to them in any way could be distorted ways to seek out the affection that we lacked in our families… or to protect ourselves from rejection. With the Moon sliding away from Pluto, now is the time to let go of the past and move toward the future with more confidence, daring to love ourselves and to open up to the right people: those who accept us as we are.
On a social level, now we’re being prompted to take responsibility and ownership (Leo) for collective (Aquarius) trauma (Pluto), recognizing the impact of past actions on the present of our communities. The symbol for this Full Moon’s degree is “An unexpected thunderstorm”: the need to accept thunderous emotions and unpredictable events, trusting the wind of change.
