The events of July 22nd will dominate this entire week. The Full Moon occurs in Aquarius, hi-lighting liberation, individuality and radical change. A culmination, result or ending will involve one or all of these themes. Mars (action) and Jupiter (expansion) in Cancer will meet in a heated conjunction on this day as well, providing fuel for the Full Moon's energy to bloom into something special. Emotions will be run high. As always, it's your choice how you direct what's available; you can move in a positive direction (fuelled by faith), or have an emotional meltdown (fuelled by anger). Finally, Venus (money, love, self-esteem) enters Virgo (until August 16th), the sign of service, details and purity. This indicates that the Full Moon's results will require attention to an obligation or detail. Energy will need to be backed up with what you can do for someone else, or knowledge of what works (perfectly) for you. It won't be enough to break free; you'll need to have a specific idea of what comes next, and you'll want to do it right. Know that Virgo is about little things, not the big picture. So if you're not sure what your next move is, make a micro-plan and take things one step at a time.
The Full Moon lights up your social sector, bringing issues around groups, friends (and your relationship with others in general) into prominence. There may be a goodbye, a decision about who you'll align yourself with, or results from a project, launch or promotion. This can be a breakthrough moment if you've been trying to gain more recognition for your art or performance. Mars (your ruler) and Jupiter together in your domestic sector suggest there's powerful support or inspiration (with home or family) to back you up. This spotlight will be underlined with Venus' move into your sector of work and daily routine, indicating that any results will be immediately followed up with obligations to others. The Full Moon may push you to stand out from the crowd, but this energy is not all about you. This influence can be especially helpful on the job, as Venus will create smooth relationships with co-workers. Routines should fall into place nicely, as well.
The Full Moon falls in your career sector, bringing results from a job search, application or decision about your future. As well, there could be a layoff/retirement. What works for you (and not others) is the theme, so there will be tension, especially regarding your goals versus a family member's preferences. Home/the past will face off against career/the future. This could be the moment when you realize your existing path is not where you really want to be. What will you do about that? If you've aligned yourself with a path that reflects your true desires, this influence will feel less tense and more affirming. Mars and Jupiter in your communication sector insist that now is the time to verbalize your wants/needs, or launch your plans; you have a powerful pool of initiative at your disposal. The urge to express your individuality will be enhanced by Venus (your ruler) as she moves into your sector of creativity. Now is the time to express your personal/creative goals, or start working on that close-to-your-heart project. It's time to get specific about what you really want, not what others want from you.
The Full Moon in your opportunities sector can bring the unexpected regarding a trip, or education/legal matter. If you've been waiting for results, they may hit you faster than anticipated, or in a surprising way. As well, this Moon can bring a risky or exciting opportunity. There will be a chance to move beyond what's known; if you're unsure, look at the bigger picture/long term impact on your life. Mars and Jupiter in your security suggest that there's money to be made, or needs to be satisfied, and it's all within your reach. You just have to make the first move. Venus' move into your domestic sector will shift the focus from out there to what (or who) is closest to you. Whatever results the Full Moon brings will be underscored by your feelings for a family member, partner or your domestic duties. The little things at home will take on greater importance over the coming weeks.
This Full Moon (your ruler) may be a tense one for you. It will fall in your sector of shared resources, putting the spotlight on debts, taxes, loans or your partner's finances. Watch for a final decision or breakthrough in any of these areas. As much as this energy may put the emphasis on your personal needs/desires, you may not have the final say in this outcome. This sector always involves shared power, so whether it's your partner or external investors, be prepared to make allowances. You may also find that this energy brings you to an "enough is enough" moment, where accommodation of another is no longer possible. This Moon can also bring intimacy issues (physical or emotional) into focus. The same advice applies; you won't have complete control, so be conscious of any security fears that may be driving your responses. Mars and Jupiter's union in your sign will give you an added boost of confidence and initiative, so you will probably be able to get some of what you want. But be cautious about pushing others too far. Venus' move into your communication sector should help you deal with any tension from the Full Moon, as she will give your words added charm and appeal. You'll be able to smooth things over, or work with your partner to manifest a desired decision. Fine print is the key here; whether it's the little things you notice about your loved one (and compliment them on), or crucial business details, you can spin things in a way that impress others with your conscientious approach. Don't underestimate the power of "No one noticed ___ but you!"
The Full Moon hi-lights your relationship sector, bringing a partnership to a turning point (an ending or move forward). Themes will include your needs and their freedom. The Sun's move into your sign will make this Full Moon an especially potent one for you. You'll be confronted with how your love life (whether you're single or not) reflects your purpose. Do your choices make you feel special? Are you expecting too much from your partner (or potential partner), or are they failing to meet your reasonable standards? Mars and Jupiter in your hidden sector suggest that some of your relationship decisions will be driven by secret ambitions/desires. Venus' move into your security sector will put added emphasis on your basic needs, desires and self-esteem. Any relationship (or relationship choice) that undermines these areas will be removed. It's ok to get quite picky and specific about what works and what doesn't; if you don't set the standards, no one else will meet them.
The Full Moon in your sector of routine can bring a health, work or duty issue to a head. What must be done, or what needs to be taken care of, will challenge your private agenda, dream or goal. You'll know what you should do, but will it be in your best interests? Watch for the revelation of what's hidden/ignored to clarify things and present a solution. Mars and Jupiter in your social sector indicate that others (friends, groups, clients) will have a strong impact on the results of this Full Moon. Your public relations, friendships and group affiliations will fuel you. As Venus moves into your sign, you'll focus more on you. A boost in your appeal plus an ability to attract who/what you need will only be part of the package. The real treat will be your enhanced awareness of the unique talent/ability/approach that makes you special. Venus' transit, combined with this Full Moon, can signal the emergence of a very special dream that you've been holding in reserve. It's launch time; welcome to the next chapter.
The Full Moon in your sector of creativity can signal the launch of a creative project or the results of an exciting new romance. How you shine on a personal level will be revealed in the context of how others see you. Watch for dramatic/sudden responses or answers from friends/acquaintances/clients. The union between Mars and Jupiter in your career sector can give you an added professional boost, as your public status, job performance or a job opportunity takes off. All this public energy will contrast with Venus (your ruler)as she moves into your sector of secrets. You may want to keep the results of that romance private, or what you create/present to your audience may have a hidden aspect. Venus' transit in this sector indicates that there's more to the story; whether you're still working out the details, or you're not prepared to give complete access, allow things to progress at their own pace. There's no rush.
The Full Moon brings a domestic/family issue to completion. A relocation, family decision or major change at home will contrast with external developments/ambitions. How you express your individuality in your private life will be the focus, and there may have to be adjustments with your public persona. Mars and Jupiter in your opportunities sector suggest that exciting, new developments (in the areas of long-distance travel, education or legal matters) will contribute to changes at home. A major relocation is a strong possibility. Venus' move into your social sector suggests that your next step involves networking, promoting yourself or just getting out and circulating. However, aim to be selective about who you connect with; this energy works best if you focus on social contacts who fit seamlessly with your agenda. Whatever the Full Moon brings, your best bet will be in putting yourself out there. Helpful social connections or even a new romance are strong possibilities.
The Full Moon hits your communication sector, bringing a game changing or illuminating answer/decision/conversation. Information exchanges can be surprising, and can propel you forward (whether you like what you hear or not). This could also be the time when you sign a major document or agreement. This energy is about expressing yourself (or hearing others) in a radical way; compromise will not be a feature of this Moon, so you may find yourself dealing with or delivering an abrupt truth. Too, you could experience this information as freeing. Mars and Jupiter (your ruler) in your sector of shared resources suggest that someone else (a partner or someone who handles your finances) will have significant (and positive) input towards the events of this Full Moon. Financial assistance or a breakthrough in an emotional stalemate are possibilities. As Venus moves into your career sector, use the Full Moon's energy shift to evaluate/improve your career prospects. This is an excellent time to impress others with your specific skills.
The Full Moon in your security sector can see you agitating for more (money or emotional satisfaction). You may end or dramatically change a professional/personal situation, based on the unavoidable realization that your needs are unique. As Mars and Jupiter unite in your relationship sector, the pressure can be cranked up with a partner as well. They may demand more (than you can give) or you may find the urge to spread your wings (and explore other options) overwhelming. A new relationship that begins around this time will be exciting and passionately volatile. Venus' move into your opportunities sector keeps the pressure on for you to broaden your horizons or mobilize in a new direction. You'll be looking for more, but you'll continue to be selective about your options. Watch for a specific person, idea or foreign destination to be appealing. Too, this influence could help you reach more people if you're trying to promote your work.
The Full Moon in your sign can mark a major shift in a personal or professional situation. The energy will be about you (and your essential individuality) versus another (a romantic or professional partner). The situation that culminates will have been building for awhile, but the outcome may still occur suddenly. Mars and Jupiter in your sector of daily routine indicate that a health/work matter, or your obligation to someone else, may be a deciding factor. Mars/Jupiter can propel you forward or crank up your nervous energy to the point where you have to break away. This energy can also urge you to "just do it", even if you're not sure what the result will be. When in doubt, know that Jupiter usually promises a positive outcome. Venus' move into your sector of shared resources can make your next step a welcome retreat. Whether you withdraw (alone or with a special someone) for quiet/intimate time, or dig a bit deeper for some soul searching, Venus' influence can be healing (as long as you avoid focusing on what could go wrong).
The Full Moon activates your hidden sector, urging you to back off, relax or withdraw. A break to free you from overwork/emotional pressure is what this Moon is about. Mars and Jupiter in your sector of creativity and celebration urge you to relax and have fun at the same time. If it feels good, don't be afraid to go for it. These influences can also see you devoting more energy to a private dream (romantic or creative). Venus' move into your partnership sector ups the romance factor, bringing a potential new relationship or creating harmony in an existing one. Attention to partnership details will also be a theme; it's the little things, as well as conscientious follow-up to promises, that will make the difference.
