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

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.

Full Moon in Aquarius — Movement

I’ve mentioned before my morning habit of drawing a single card from Colette Baron-Reid’s The Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards as a point of reference and contemplation throughout the day. Except for an occasional “Love” or “The Mystery” card, for weeks, my morning cards have been “Restriction,” “Death,” and “Disruption.” The messages aren’t quite as “bad” as their titles sound, but July offered big challenges for a lot of people, including me.

On the whole, July felt like a huge foray into spectacles of duality, bringing me visions of extremely positive future scenarios and teasers of progress, alongside nightmare legislation, false flag events, dark machinations, delays, destructive weather patterns and Olympics security whistle-blowers. Despite so much lighthearted, clear and positive imaginings, the negative scenarios vied hard for my dominant attention and vibration. Knowing that thoughts become things, I spent much of July battling my own mental chatter and helping clients and students get the upper hand on theirs.

Yesterday afternoon, the energy shifted. It felt like a long exhale after forgetting to breathe all month. This morning’s Avalon card reflected that shift. I pulled “Movement”:

“This marker reminds you that all things change as part of the cycle of life. This may portend a physical move, or it heralds a release from restriction and waiting.

“Rejoice, for change is in the air and new things are about to enter your world. This puts you on notice that it’s time to broaden your horizons as you move forward on your path. You may travel to new and foreign places, both physically and inwardly. It is fortunate and timely to do so.

“Nothing is ever meant to be static in the ways of the living Mystery. Movement brings challenges that must not be resisted, for progress can only be made by letting go of what was and welcoming what is and what is yet to come.

“This marker is always an omen of a change for the better.”

I then stumbled upon today’s Oracle Report, which amplifies the Movement message and underscores that change has already begun. Those of you who also noticed alternately choppy waves and doldrums in July may be in for smoother sailing. Do you feel it? I do. Bon voyage!

Full Moon Phase – Moon in Aquarius

“Today’s Full Moon brings relief from the last four weeks, which I’ve labeled the Turning Point, as most of you know. The shift is over now. Many people have emailed me about what this time brought them and it has ranged from things that are “good” to things that appear “bad” on the surface: new jobs, new insights, new outlooks/frames of mind, new endeavors to new heartbreaks, new long nights of the soul, new pain. But everything had a purpose. Something needed to be revealed to each of us. If the shift has been a struggle for you (which it has for most) and you experienced a loss, it is now time to begin letting go of that situation. It’s time to recognize that the problem has been solved. If the shift was more joyous for you, enjoy the feeling of refreshment. It’s time for us to quietly reflect and adjust to the changes, Take in all that the Full Moon is illuminating for you.”
