Full Moon in Aquarius ~ July 23, 2021

On July 23 or 24, depending on your timezone, we have the first of two Aquarius Full Moons this year. My July 2021 Forecast noted:

July 23 Full Moon in Aquarius at 10:37 p.m. Eastern. This Full Moon falls in very early Aquarius, close to the Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction of Winter Solstice 2020. Hopes and intentions that couldn’t quite manifest then may release now — either fully formed, or upgraded into something more aligned with the Highest Good of All. Non-attachment is an Aquarian virtue that invites curiosity and innovation. Use this Full Moon to gain new perspective. Pay attention to sudden insights and intuitive downloads. The things we most need often sneak through the backdoor while we’re hanging out on the front porch.

This Full Moon occurs at 1°26′ Aquarius. Since we always round up for Sabian Symbols, the symbol for 2° Aquarius is “AN UNEXPECTED THUNDERSTORM.” You can read the full write up here. It emphasizes sudden changes — especially natural events — for which we feel unprepared. While this sounds ominous, it can also serve as a good reminder to keep basic things on hand like extra food and water. You don’t need to go full Doomsday Prepper, but these times bring enough uncertainty that a little preparedness makes good sense.

Attitude’s important. The ability to adapt to change brings opportunities. Where others might feel overwhelmed, some inner flexibility and good old fashioned prayer can position you to receive blessings you never thought possible. I recommend mantras like “If not this, then something better” and “I am always in the right place at the right time, doing the right thing.”

Pay attention to little nudges ahead of this Full Moon. If you need to complete, acquire or get rid of something, this transit encourages you to do what needs to be done. Act from a place of curiosity and invitation, rather than from a place of fear. Every Full Moon offers a chance for release — this one more than most. You can surf powerful cosmic energies.

The Centaur Chariklo closely conjuncts the Full Moon at 1°52′ Aquarius. In mythology, Chariklo is the loving wife of Chiron, the Wounded Healer. She brings healing magic to this “unexpected thunderstorm.” According to foreverconscious.com:

Chariklo is the largest known asteroid in our solar system.

The night Chariklo was discovered was an auspicious one. She was spotted under the Aquarius Sun on February 15, 1997, and together with four other planets and the Moon, she created a perfect six-pointed star in our night sky. Such a remarkable alignment at the time of her discovery indicates a magic to her energy.

Chariklo’s discovery as part of this six-pointed star indicates an energy of creation, miracles, divination, protection, and destiny.

Chariklo is considered a celestial body of grace, healing, and compassion. Her energy is pure and gentle, and a reminder of the loving-kindness that lives within us all.

On a personal note, this all happens to conjunct my natal Moon, thereby triggering my exact Sun-Moon-Pluto Grand Trine in Air. The Sun point sits right on my Sun-Pluto Midpoint, so I expect this Full Moon to feel extra deep and potent to me. I’m grateful for Chariklo’s buffering effect.

Conjuncting the Sun point at 1°26′ Leo, is Vulkanus at 2°, Psyche at 3°, and Ophelia at 4° Leo. This combo intensifies emotions and intuitive awareness. Even if you breeze through this passage, those around you might struggle. Take care of yourself, but remember to have compassion for people caught off guard. Astrology and inner work give us a heads up, so that we can more easily respond to and even embrace change. Many of us are “strategically placed” to hold space and uplift vibrations in our vicinity.

The Hopi have listed “Four Easy Steps for Surviving the Earth Changes and All the Prophecies

1. Keep your eyes open.
2. Let go of fear.
3. Learn all you can.
4. Live your spirituality.”

As they say, “This can be a good time.”

It’s also a good time to review the idea of El Mundo Bueno. Different realities exist. Choose often, and choose well. Moment by moment, we live.

    Thank you for this excellent post Laura! My fourth conference on consciousness and contact begins on July 22nd and will encompass this full moon as well as the summer solstice, a change in the Mayan calendar and a number of other energies. For the Lakota, it takes four years or sun dance ceremonies for a participant to become a sun dancer. We will be attending a sun dance ceremony as well as a sweat lodge ceremony led by a prominent Lakota chief. Last summer was a time of intense purification and upgrades at our conference and this year will be the culmination of all that has happened previously. It will be quite an event for everyone who attends and the energies will reverberate out to the collective. Many blessings to all!

    An unexpected thunderstorm. That phrase immediately made me recall your recent dream.

    Thank you, as always, for the heads up!
