Sun is Leo, 22° 24'
Moon is Aquarius, 22° 24'
The full moon in Aquarius with the Sun in Leo is a bit of an antithesis with Aquarius encouraging us to be emotionally detached, while the Leo influence generally desires loyalty within relationships. Emotionally, we might feel torn over how to deal with relationships that we either feel smothered, or simply have not developed the connection that we had hoped. Venus' conjunction with the Sun in Leo adds to this confusion, especially if there is a love connection involved. Throw in the loose conjunction with Mars in Leo, and, well, we’re fanning the embers of something smoldering. Patience and tolerance are not likely to be our strongest traits today.
Mercury is transiting direct again, and popped back into Leo just a few days ago. Old territory that was covered recently by Mercury’s retrograde motion is in the rear-view mirror, so to speak, as Mercury has moved past that, and now it’s going to feel fresh again. Mercury’s transit through Leo tends to lean towards dramatic ideas. Try to focus on the simpler ideas that are easier to attain. Mercury is square to Uranus in Taurus, which just stationed retrograde motion a few days ago. Resist the impulse to take off on an intellectually draining tangent.
Jupiter stationed direct in Sagittarius on August 11 and now it is heading towards Capricorn. A few more months in Sagittarius, so if you have been feeling the benefits of Jupiter’s Sagittarius transit, use these next few months to expand on the perks. Jupiter continues to square Neptune in Pisces. You know the drill by now. Don’t Over Promise.
Saturn retrograde in Capricorn is in a loose conjunction with Pluto retrograde, and a significant square to Neptune in Pisces. It just feels like we are battling too many demons at the moment. It’s a time to disengage from negative behaviors in order to find a better outcome.
The chart is a little heavy with masculine receptives for this full moon. We may be inclined to take charge, but we are better served by stepping aside to let others shine. The chart has only one Air element and one Water element. We may be a bit too sensitive to criticism or plan old honest facts. Don’t let it get us down though, because the facts are not intended to tear us down, but to make us stronger with knowledge. Just proceed with caution as the full moon has a tendency to bring out some impulsive crazies.
Note – last weekend, our region experienced an intense lightning storm and a bolt of lightning struck near my home and wiped out some electronics even though they were plugged into surge protectors. So, I’m not able to just post things when I want until we get a few things replaced/repaired. I am relying on others to accomplish some of the full moon activities this month. Thank you everyone for either your help, or your patience.
