This week we are waxing to Friday evening's (MST) full moon at 1 degree Aquarius, but before we get to that, we have two big energy shifts: Venus into Virgo on Wednesday, and sun into Leo on Thursday.
The first quarter square moon - the halfway point between the new moon and full moon - was just on Saturday. That is always an energetic impasse between our conscious focus and subconscious that requires some effort or growth on our part in order to resolve the conflict and move forward. On that same day, the sun's opposition to Pluto retrograde was exact. This only increased our sense of tension. Although we will be feeling that opposition into Tuesday or so, it is dissipating now.
Looking forward, the energy is growing towards Friday's full moon, and it is the prime growth/building/all-forward energy of the month.
On top of being the energetic high point of this lunar cycle, this full moon is the completion of the six month cycle that began with the February 11th Aquarius new moon.
What was beginning in your life then?
With this full moon being at 1 degree Aquarius, we are also revisiting the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction that occurred at zero degrees Aquarius on December 21st, and began both a new 20 year cycle, as well as a new 200 year cycle - the previous one has been earth, and this one is air - that means we are transitioning into a new structure that is more intellectual and mobile, not as connected to place, not as "grounded."
Full moons are vantage points - what is being illuminated?
The other thing to keep in mind around this Friday's full moon is that is the first of two full moons in a row in Aquarius - the next one will be August 22nd.
The modern ruler of Aquarius is Uranus, but the traditional ruler of the sign (before modern technology discovered the outer planets) was Saturn. One of the key astrological signatures of 2021 is Saturn in Aquarius making three squares to Uranus in Taurus over the course of the year - the first was February 17th, the second was June 14th, and the third will be December 24th.
With the ruler of these two full moons being Uranus, and the new moon in Leo on August 8th being in challenging aspect to Uranus, we are going to be working with strong Uranus/Aquarius energy over the coming weeks, and it will most likely be feeling a bit uncomfortable.
Part of this is the challenging planetary aspects that are coming with this series of three lunar events, another part is that Uranus is known for bringing change and in unexpected ways.
This energy can have us feeling restless or even anxious. It is unpredictable. It shakes things up in order to move us into the future, into the new, and to prompt us out of stagnation and into innovation.
Full moons are always the energetic climax of the month and intense on their own by their very nature, but having two in a row that are Uranus-ruled during a year that is strongly influenced by Uranus, along with a new moon challenged by Uranus in between, is a unique situation, and one that will no doubt be pushing our comfort zone and keeping us on our toes with the unexpected.
When uncertainty is what is certain, the question is, how well can we adapt?
Can we find our balance in motion and surf the waves when they come?
Can we find new ways to align and flow with the shifting energies and be flexible and innovative, of agile mind, rather than getting mired in what's familiar and our habits of doing things and thinking about things?
