Posted by on Jul 31, 2023 in Astrology, Chinese Astrology, Full Moon | 0 comments

Aug 1, 2023 at 11:32 am PDT is a super full Moon, the second of four super Moons in a row. This full Moon is in Air sign Aquarius, the ruler of the eleventh house of friendship, social groups, and media technology. Aquarians are unique and independent thinkers who bring their unique talents and energy when working with others.

As this full Moon wanes during the next two weeks, it’s time for original ideas, creative learning, and travel. It’s fortunate to take a few risks and try something new. These waning Moon two weeks are also favorable to complete projects and tie up loose ends. Mercury in Virgo conjuncts Mars for attention to details and to prioritize concerns. Mars trines Jupiter in Taurus, a lucky trine bringing energy to follow your plans and take action. Contact me for your tarot or astrology reading for inspiration.

The full Moon and Sun in Leo square Jupiter in Taurus. There can be more generosity, but a tendency to excess and perhaps extravagance, especially during the peak of Earth Sheep lunar month. Sheep eat paper, meaning there can be overspending. For sensitive and spiritual Sheep, the cost of peace, art, and beauty are worth the price.

Retrograde Venus in Leo squares Uranus. Don’t let the need for excitement turn into the need for an argument. Under the influence of gentle Sheep, if emotional issues are out in the open then you can reach an understanding. There can be readjustment about independence in your relationships.

Mercury will be retrograde Aug 23 – Sept 15. The retrograde shadow begins one week before on Aug 16, a new Moon that begins Monkey lunar month. So get organized and make your changes for the better before Monkey month.

This full Moon marks the solar point between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox. It’s the Celtic holiday of Lugnasad, a grain harvest festival that’s the first of three harvest festivals followed by Autumn Equinox then Halloween. The seasonal wheel turns, but there is still plenty of summer light to enjoy!

Artistic creativity and inspiration are for all, and are most transformative for Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra and those born Tiger, Horse, Sheep, and Dog years.

Happy full Moon,
Susan
