This is the second Full Moon in Aquarius this year (the first occurred last month on July 23, 2021). This lunation occurs late in the sign of Aquarius, right near the cusp of Pisces.
A Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Leo forms an opposition to the Moon in Aquarius. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time – a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
As the second Full Moon in Aquarius this year and occurring at the tail-end of the sign, this is about final events that awaken our feelings and that might spur us into action.
With the Sun conjunct Mercury in Leo, the energy at first blush may feel rife with the splendor of summer days- however; with Mercury also opposing Saturn in Aquarius, what initially feels like empowered joy may result in sadness and frustration.
Today is not a day to take action. More importantly, on this day, take a step back and try to see the bigger picture. Remember that no matter what comes up- you are safe, you are loved and you okay.
Mercury’s angle to Saturn may cause exaggerated feelings of hopelessness- seeing the very worst in a situation. Work to not react and try to respond with a level energy instead.
With Venus opposed Jupiter, you may feel lighter, more affectionate and more playful than usual. This is a great time to take a step back and feel the love… Be mindful to not just accept any offer of affection at this time though- be discerning and shine your light within if you do not have a vibrational match with another. Also be careful of overindulgence during this time- moderation is key.
As the Sun moves into Leo, take time to let your light shine! Sun is Leo’s natural ruler and during this transit you may feel very generous, creative and loving. Be bold, take risks and plan to manifest now. WIth the Sun in Leo, take time to embrace your inner child- letting them out to play and express themselves. Take time with friends and family; feel your heart light opening and shining upon your surroundings.
Full Moon is a culmination of what we started around the time of the New Moon. With the Full Moon energy embracing qualities of the Goat, we are pushed even harder to finish what we started at the beginning of the lunar cycle.
This Full Moon will ask us to acknowledge what we have obtained, what has yet to be achieved and what adjustments need to be made moving forward.
Capricorn Full Moon is about success, not taking “no” for an answer and tackling obstacles that may lie in the way.
During this time, the Moon in Capricorn faces the Sun in Cancer- both of these signs associate with security, but seek it in different ways. Capricorn is focused on accomplishment of external goals and Cancer wants to search for comfort and safety within the confines of feeling.
This Full Moon will ask us to find the balance that exists within the two sides of security.
The Summer Solstice is the the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and considered the first day of Summer. It marks the day when the Sun is at its highest point in the sky and is truly a celebration of not only the Sun but the Light. During the Summer Solstice we are encouraged to reflect upon relationships with others and within the self. What are your long term goals? What does your heart yearn for? This is the time to cultivate your seeds, nurturing all that you are now planting with an open heart. Remember that with the Solstice comes a turning of the Wheel and we are now slowly making our way towards the the darkness- each day growing closer to our deepest selves- Embrace change and walk in faith.
During the Summer Solstice, we welcome the onset of Cancer Season. Cancer is a deep, emotional, nurturing sign, but during this transit- things can get overly emotional or moody. Cancer is an intaking sign and is connected to the 4th House of Home and Family. Ties to the past, our loved ones and our desire to nurture others will come into play. This is a time of heightened emotional sensitivity- when we can rebalance our heart and head after the expanding mental capacity of Gemini. Cancer will ask us to dive into our vulnerabilities and look to where the past may be keeping us stuck in a loop. Nurturing activities like gardening or cooking are great ways to deepen the connection with Mother energy.
On this same day- Jupiter turns Retrograde. The energy of Jupiter Retrograde lasts typically about four months. Jupiter is he planet of expansion, luck and joy. It also represents abundance, travel and philosophy. With Jupiter in retrograde, we are asked to dive deeply into philosophical and spiritual introspection. Jupiter travels through two signs during this retrograde, Pisces and Aquarius. Pisces energy could leave us feeling dazed and confused- perhaps overall optimistic about situations that are not what they seem. Once Jupiter transits back into Aquarius, additional details will bring clarity; however this clarity may not be what we hoped for- it is important to remember to ask what the lesson is- instead of getting stuck in emotional entanglements.
