Dear Friends,

There is a Full Moon on July 31st at 6:42 am EDT at 07 degrees Aquarius 55 minutes. This is the second Full Moon to occur in July. This is known as a Blue Moon. This has no astrological significance. It is just a calendar measurement. At the time of a Full Moon issues can come to a head and you can release the energy around a situation that may have been brewing. Especially any intentions you may have set at the time of the New Moon could bare fruit at the Full Moon. The New Moon was on July 15th at 23 degrees of Cancer emphasizing home, family, nostalgia, and enduring values. At the time of that New Moon Mars and Mercury were together in Cancer in direct opposition to Pluto. This ushered in some intense energy. That is released and maybe understood at this Full Moon.

On this Full Moon Saturn is retrograde at the end of Scorpio asking us to get a grip on what is on your plate. Saturn goes direct two days after the Full Moon takes place on August 2nd. You might as well say that this Full Moon is introducing Saturn moving forward. Saturn has been in Scorpio since October 5th, 2012 asking us to get our lives under control. It could be the need to clean things up, get healthy and get ready to move on. Some things needed to end. That is where we are on this Full Moon. Get some perspective and reset your goals because that is what this energy is calling for.

This is a fixed air sign. Where Aquarius is in your chart is where old molds, old concepts, those things which have outgrown their usefulness are being shattered. New ideas, brilliance, new inventions show us a new way now. Aquarius is the sign of spiritual rebirth. This may be the time when you understand that you need to get out of an old box.

This Full Moon, in Aquarius is directing our attention to networking with groups. It is also time to work on our relationship with friends. Uranus is the modern ruler of Aquarius and it has been in Aries for four years. Uranus is opening the door to new leadership and to new ways of looking at the world. Uranus is the Planet of invention and Aries is the inventor. It is time for you to invent something for yourself. It is time to put yourself around people that you want to aspire to be like. Join a group that has the same kind of goals and interests that you have. If there is none then create a group and lead it. Uranus has been in Aries 4 years and has 3 more years to go giving ample time to establish a new arena to grow in. Uranus has been square to Pluto in Capricorn until a few months ago. This has been a challenge because Pluto will accept nothing less but to completely establish ourselves in a better way. It requires dedication. Pluto is the ultimate challenge for growth and change. Aries is the sign of identity. Uranus is bringing out our true identity. Uranus in Aries is looking for authenticity.

Saturn is the old ruler of Aquarius before Uranus was discovered. Saturn is currently in Scorpio. Not just in Scorpio but is at the end of its 2 ½ year stay. Saturn holds us accountable and in Scorpio it is for the choices we have made and the people we associate with. This is the sign of power and money. It is the values of others that we are connected with. Saturn holds us responsible for the company we keep. Don't put yourself around people that you don't want to be responsible for. Saturn is in Pluto's sign and Pluto is in Saturn's sign. This is known as a mutual reception. They have exchange status. It brings the two signs together. The Scorpio house and the Capricorn house in your chart have an opportunity to work together. This Full Moon makes you aware of how to begin this process. Saturn will leave Scorpio on September 17th so we have to clean things up and move on.

Last but not least Venus is retrograde and will go direct September 6th. This gives us a chance to look deep at what we really really want. Venus went into Leo on June 5th. Leo is where you heart is and what you love. Venus went all the way through Leo and on July 18th she found herself in the beginning of Virgo looking for tools. She did a U-turn on July 25 when she went retrograde and finds herself back in Leo right on this Full Moon. She is ready to give us a clue. Venus continues to retrograde through Leo until September 6th. During this time she is asking us to look beneath the surface of things. She will remain in Leo until October 8th. The message is clear, it is all about love. If you have been bought in any way it is time to get that fixed. You will be happier.

This is a symbol of the ineradicable vanity of the human spirit as it gathers strength not only from the finery it wears but from a superficial display of woman's form and man's reputation, here emphasized through personal idealizations. A strong psychological dynamic for individual effort comes from the direct influence of outstanding and even notorious people and implicit in the static symbolism of the waxworks is a necessity to recognize and identify the values worthy of emulation. The keyword is, IMPACT. When positive, the degree is achievement through the effective dramatization of human character on some level of everyday understanding, and when negative, futile effort to recapture outworn experience.
