Full Moon in Aquarius 1°26’, July 24th, 2021

A full moon occurs when the transiting Moon and the Sun meet at the same degree in the opposing signs. Full Moons are connected to endings, things coming to a culmination. This is a time to take action and eliminate whatever is not needed so that you can move forward fully recharged into the next lunar phase.

This full moon is happening at an early degree of a fixed sign. If you have any planets or points at an early degree of one of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Aquarius or Libra), you will experience this full moon most intensely. 

It is essential to note that when a full moon falls at an early degree of a sign, this often implies a premature ending to a matter or a life situation you might be going through around this time.

This Full Moon falls at a very similar degree to the Great Jupiter and Saturn Conjunction of December 21st, 2020, and this suggests that in the days leading towards the full moon we might see changes in the sphere of social relations, behaviour or institutions taking place.

During a moon phase in Aquarius, we may seem emotionally detached on the outside, putting a greater focus on our intellect rather than on our emotions. Group activities, humanitarian rights and social justice are also some of the major topics of this lunar phase.

Aquarius is ruled by two planets. Uranus is the modern ruler, while Saturn is the traditional ruler. However, even though both these planets rule the same sign, they represent very distinct energies. Uranus wants to free itself from any structures, restrictions. It forces towards the new, rejecting any outdated traditions and ways of behaviour while Saturn wants to maintain the old structures, laws and rules and there comes the conflict between our desire for individuality and the need for unity. Saturn, the traditional ruler of Aquarius stands out in this lunation as it is connected to the Moon, while Uranus is not making any major aspect. 

Full Moon in Aquarius Major aspects:

The Moon widely applies to conjunct Saturn retrograde in Aquarius, suggesting delays or things taking longer to develop than expected. While seeking emotional stability, with Saturn involved it might be difficult to trust or express our feelings at times. 

The Moon is separating sextile to Neptune in Pisces. This is an out of sign sextile suggesting that any unfulfilled dreams or fantasies might dissolve if we don’t act now, and try to make them a reality.

Finally, the Moon is also separating from a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn. This is another out of sign aspect, meaning that both planets (the Moon is considered a planet in Astrology) are in different signs. 

This can create a situation when we find out in very different circumstances, moving away from the old into new territory.
