The full Moon is at one degree 25 minutes Aquarius at 10:36 PM EST on 23 July A powerful combo is the Full Moon in Aquarius and Sun in the sign it rules: Leo.
Lightning bolts jolt us out of the beach chair enlivening the creative lines in our bodies and spirits.
Fiery Leo is fed by the winds of Aquarius. If we are expecting the unexpected we can be open to new pathways to creative self expression, generosity and love.
When we give from our essence, the energy emanating from that creativity can warm and encourage and feed those who are receptive to its touch. And of course, it feeds the creator, too.
Jupiter will retrograde into Aquarius on 29 July. The Greater Benefic – that’s Jupiter - invites us to expand into our creative gift that we can share with the community of life. What can we give that helps, inspires, solves, contributes to this with whom we share this adventure.
Leo is creative self expression. Aquarius draws that creative self expression out of the solitary experience into the shared experience. We can post an encouraging talk on all of the platforms. We can share a joke that takes someone’s day in a new and uplifted direction. We can add a piece to the puzzle of a solution in a community meeting on the environment or traffic issues or air quality conversations. We don’t have to be physically out and about in the world to participate in the community.
Aquarius likes to be a lone Wolf and it also likes to engage with friends, colleagues and comrades. Finding a way to stick our hand out, add our voice, share our wisdom, lend our creativity in constructive ways is called for now.
It feels good to do something. It feels good to bring something to the table. We don’t all have to bring a 3-tiered confection of multicolored buttercream. Just think of that one person who remembered to bring the lowly but crucial vial of salt to the picnic.
We all have something to bring to the table or we wouldn’t be here.
Leo Sun and Aquarius full Moon can help us to align with what to bring, when to bring it and where to offer it.
Venus is in Virgo adding practicality and a good sense of timing to how we can participate in a useful way to the whole.
Virgo is also the healer of the zodiac. Our contributions to and participation toward the common good can help to heal individual and collective trauma. It can feel good to take an action – large, small or anywhere in between. Planting a living thing helps the air quality for all, gives a landing place for pollinators and helps to cool off the city, for example. Remembering all that we are already doing for our own good and the good of the group is a step in the right direction, too.
Are you raising a child in a thoughtful way? Are you encouraging a downhearted friend? Are you sharing your artwork online? Are you telling your story? Are you tuning in to universal consciousness, nature spirits, devas, and the angelic realms in meditation and in daily life? Are you asking for help? Are you teaching someone how you got out of a particular hole? Are you saying hello to someone at the shop or on the street? Little, medium, big— who knows which is which? We can do what we can do. That old chestnut “take the action and let go of the results” is a wise adage in these times. Not knowing who we are inspiring, or whose life we’ve made a bit (or a lot) better is part of the creative fun!
Mercury enters Leo on 29 July to remind us to add our voice to the chorus. We are not on the life trip alone and there are so many ways we can dip our toes in the water of the shared experience- even if we aren’t ready or able to physically able to take a dip with everyone else at the local pond or pool.
Leo brings warmth, creativity and generosity. Aquarius brings the camaraderie, the flashes of brilliance that come from the Higher Mind and the energy of the group. As fixed signs they have a lot of oomph once they decide to take an action. Together they can make real change, evolution and solutions.
Okay! The sun is out. The lightning will strike. See what they illuminate and join your light to theirs. If you want. 😊🌻😊🦁😊⚡️⚡️💜
Lots of love at this powerful full Moon.
