July’s full moon will be on Friday the 27th and will be in the astrological sign of Aquarius. Events are going to be interesting to say the least with the influence of the full moon, five planets currently in retrograde, and the longest lunar eclipse of the century culminating on the same night!
Aquarians are known for their eccentric nature which makes this full moon the perfect time to reconnect with your authentic self. Coming face to face with your true self can be a daunting task even in the best of times, but right now the cosmos are almost cornering you into a place where you don’t have a choice but to take a look in the mirror. You may find that you have been faced with abrupt endings and unexpected detours in your relationships, career, or personal life. Doors seem to be closing left and right. Emotions and events are unpredictable. Our nature as humans is to cling to the things we feel we have lost but this moon is encouraging us to trust the process. The closure you may now be experiencing is a gift. It is an opportunity to learn who you are without distraction and to embrace your uniqueness. Massive personal transformation is on the horizon but first we must allow the human ego and self imposed limitations to crumble. There is a method to the madness. All of this chaos is for a higher purpose. Allow yourself to flow with the changes rather than against them. The goal is to achieve a degree of self-actualization and to carry that with you out into the world.
Mars in retrograde seems to be bringing our attention to everything that isn’t working in our lives. This is an opportunity to make changes and adjustments to your life in a way that is in alignment with your authentic self. This is not the time to wallow in our misfortunes but rather to actively seek solutions. If you have been sitting on any plans now is the time to consider action, even if your plans seem crazy and impossible.
This moon may also bring out your humanitarian side. The sense that we are all connected and are all part of something “bigger” may be heavy on your mind right now. Take this as an opportunity to contemplate ways in which you can use your gifts to influence change on a larger scale. This is a good time to volunteer at your local charity or to donate to a cause that speaks to you. It is also important that you show gratitude to those close to you who have always been there when you were in need. A gift, card, or simple thank you will help to raise spirits this full moon.
With the intensifying energy of the lunar eclipse and Mars RX stirring up the drama, emotions are definitely running high. Mood swings may come on spontaneously and may feel jarring and uncomfortable. If you have already been experiencing this emotional rollercoaster don’t worry, you aren’t in this alone. Don’t fight against it and try to avoid antagonizing emotionally volatile situations with others. Rather than trying to block out your emotions or attempting to pull those around you out of their own feelings you should spend this time listening to these emotions and learning the lessons they are here to teach you. Be mindful of the events and situations that trigger your emotions. It is also important that you observe others in your life as they process their own feelings. The full moon always brings what is under the surface to light and as a result, you may find that the heightened emotions in those around you will reveal to you what has been hidden from site. Pay attention to how those around you handle their emotions and how they relate to you throughout the process. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself needing to make some adjustments to your social circle when it is all said and done.
As an emotional reprieve, Aquarius is the sign of the water bearer and combines the elements of both water and air. Though emotions may be unpredictable, this full moon provides us with the opportunity to take a few steps back and to view the emotions unfolding around us from a more intellectual point of view. Take advantage of this opportunity. It will help you to gain some much needed perspective. You will be surprised with what emotions can teach you when you allow yourself to both experience them and objectively observe them.
We are in the heart of eclipse season this full moon so expect your sleeping patterns to be disrupted. You may find yourself waking up in the middle of the night or having a difficult time falling asleep. Many people I have spoken to this week have reported experiencing vivid dreams. If this is something you are experiencing, remember to take note of your dreams and to spend some time meditating on them.
The energy of this full moon is unpredictable and spontaneous. Remember not to fight the process. When we settle too long on a specific course, the universe may decide to shake things up in order to position you in the direction of progress. Use this as an opportunity to blaze a new trail and don’t allow yourself to give into fear. You are on the right path.
