Sunday, July 25
We are impatient with our progress today as optimistic Jupiter dynamically squares shadowy Pluto in a long-lasting aspect that can make us feel invincible, even in the face of prolonged tension. Our personal goals change as the Moon’s entry into global Aquarius at 3:37 pm EDT shifts our focus onto the larger community. The Aquarius Full Moon at 9:36 pm opposes the Sun in self-centered Leo, emphasizing the contrast between individual and group needs.
You might need to retreat today as you manage the unexpected consequences of your overly ambitious commitments, even if your intentions were good. But it’s not very useful to worry about where you have fallen short of your goals. Instead, take time to replenish your creative juices and do something that enriches your soul. The big issues aren’t going away; you’ll still need to deal with them when you return -- hopefully with a renewed sense of vitality and purpose.
Today's Full Moon activates your 10th House of Career, indicating that you could be considering a professional move or somehow changing your role in the community. No matter what you do now, it will probably have a strong impact on your relationship to your family dynamics. You don't have to make decisions by yourself; it’s smarter to involve others in the process.
You could learn something important today that has a long-term effect on your spiritual beliefs or political opinions. Recent studies may have already opened the door to more possibilities, which, in turn, attracts you to new ideas. Curiosity lures you further into your own explorations while more altruistic interests can add a deeper meaning to your life.
You are overly sensitive to today's Full Moon in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. You may be able to feel deep emotional rumblings from within your psyche. Waves of self-doubt enter the picture, which can, in turn, negatively impact your financial condition. Ultimately, if you are willing to dig beneath the surface, the current metamorphosis could be very positive.
The Aquarius Full Moon floods awareness into your 7th House of Partners. It’s directly opposed to your proud Leo Sun, indicating that you are ready to break out of an entrenched pattern of a current relationship. Keep in mind that a change to the dynamics of a partnership might lead to an improvement in your overall attitude. Once you’re feeling better about yourself, others will notice the difference and come forward to support you.
The effects of today’s Full Moon in unusual Aquarius may not be immediately apparent, but its powerful influence is absorbed on a subconscious level. You might not be very clear about your role, especially if others aren't being clear about what they want. Stop going through endless mental loops and simply settle in to enjoy the day. Paradoxically, the benefits of pampering yourself are greater now than any specific work you might do.
Today’s Full Moon illuminates your 5th House of Romance and Creativity, making this a day for love. But excitement can bring a few surprises along with it. You may not be assessing others realistically now, although it’s a gift to be able to see the highest potential in anyone you meet. Be careful not to judge things by their appearance alone, for the truth may not be as pretty as the attractive veneer.
The Full Moon in your 4th House of Roots can stir old memories and nostalgia today, leaving you feeling a bit empty. Nevertheless, revisiting an old fantasy can be cathartic if you are then willing to move on. Fortunately, you should be able to process an emotional wound quickly, along with any residual negativity. Concentrating on a magical moment in the present allows you to detach from the past so you can enjoy the love that's around you now.
It might feel like you don't have a single moment to take it easy today because your 3rd House of Communication is activated by the brilliant Aquarius Full Moon. However, you would be wise to focus on your own projects, even if everyone wants to talk to you about their crazy ideas. Make the time for more pleasurable activities that add something special to your life, such as redecorating your home or working in your garden.
Your overconfidence can lead to trouble today unless you pay close attention to the details. You may be feeling pretty good about yourself, but the Full Moon in your 2nd House of Money can tempt you to spend more than you should on something you don’t really need. Be smart and wait a few more days before reevaluating your options.
Today's Full Moon in your sign stretches your emotions to the extreme. You may believe that you know what you need, yet your moods are inconsistent and your desires change throughout the day. This can be particularly confusing to a partner or close friend who isn’t accustomed to you expressing your whims. Nevertheless, it’s better to deal with someone else’s uncertainty about you than it is to deny your feelings.
The Full Moon shines in your 12th House of Privacy, making you less likely to let others in on what you’re feeling today. However, avoidance isn’t a practical long-term strategy on which to build a relationship or your life. Don’t put off an important discussion just because the thought of it makes you uncomfortable. It’s not necessary to fill in all the details, but the sooner you can get some pieces of the puzzle to fit, the better.
