Monday August 3rd with the Moon already in Aquarius from Sunday’s ingress the first big aspect of the day is the Moon and Uranus square, only a few hours before the exact moment of the Full Moon at 11:59 AM ET. I will have a picture of this in the video forecast so check it out if you like visuals.
The Full Moon always bring awareness of some kind to those paying attention and sometimes even to those not paying attention. This time Uranus is involved by being at the halfway point between the Sun and Moon. From a personal perspective that placement in a chart represents the crossroads of the inner and outer beingness of you. In an event chart, a moment in time, it is that too but from a collective point of view. Meaning humanity as a whole is at a crossroad where all the inner energy is coming out in a highly active and ego driven way.
Coming from the Sun in Leo and reflecting back to the Moon in humanitarian Aquarius with the unexpectedness of Uranus at the midpoint this Full Moon is sure to set us on edge, shows us how to step out of our comfort zones, or push us out so we can grow, expand and make new choices. We have had plenty of opportunities over the last 6 months to step out of the old ways of thinking and being so we can learn and grow and make new choices. This Full Moon like any opposition in a chart is here to show us the other point of view. Maybe we can stop long enough to say OK I see your point of view; I don’t have to agree with you, but I see where you are coming from.
Later in the day but active all day nonetheless is the opposition between Mercury in Cancer and Saturn in Capricorn. Today, Monday awareness is abundant and these two in that opposition say, be easy on yourself and those you love. Look around and see what it is you know makes you feel grounded and safe. It is important today to be open to new ideas and thoughts that come from others but to also know clearly where you stand in that regards to whatever subject is most important to you right now. Some of us may have our beliefs shaken during transits like these.
Moving on to Tuesday August 4th the big aspect of the day here is Mars in Aries square Jupiter in Capricorn. This square combination is impulsive which can be a good thing if you’ve been feeling stuck, not such a good thing if your world is already a bit chaotic. They will meet again October 18/19 and December 11th. Journal your activities and what you observe today will be helpful in predicting what the other two dates will be like later in the year. The best advice I can give you for today would be if you are feeling the need to do something then take that action, do not sit on it or wait. Act where you feel you can safely and not impulsively.
Mercury is a focus today too as it finally moves out of Cancer and enters Leo. Are you ready for even more news? I don’t know about you but I am ready to unplug. (This is usually the one week in the year when I am camping with 10,000 fellow Medieval enthusiasts at an event we call Pennsic. Like all big events it is cancelled this year so I will need to figure out how to unplug while not on vacation and still stay available to you for private sessions). Another way we could see this play out is through the creative side of Leo. Sing, write, have amazing conversations. That last piece would be so nice if we could start talking to each other again and not argue just good old debates. I am feeling nostalgic for some of the older days when that was what you did to work things out instead of what we see on social media.
Wednesday and Thursday of this week the Moon in the sign of Pisces may help to smooth over the rough edges, make it easier to detach from drama and maybe even for a little while feel oblivious to the details of what’s going on around us. Rest and relax and if you can get a few days off, find some water to sit near, a Lake or River, the beach. Your Soul will thank you for the break.
The news of the day for Friday August 7th is Venus moving into Cancer for the next 4 weeks. First it will feel calm and gentle, we value our homes and the safety it provides. But in time (August 13 to the 25th) she will stir up some of the things Mercury retrograde showed you, so look back to this time frame when Mercury was in Cancer and retrograde June 17 to July 12 and know over the next few weeks and especially the August dates listed above Venus will reveal to us more information about what we truly value.
The weekend is hot and full of energy with the Moon in Aries.
I hope you are able to enjoy something fun this Summer I plan to find a place to do some floating on water.
