Full Blue Moon in Aquarius July 31, 2015

On July 31st, we have the third Full Moon in the month of July – something so rare, it is called a Blue Moon; hence the expressions “Once in a Blue Moon” or “Only during a Blue Moon”.

The meaning of a Full Moon centers around the concept of completion. The tree is ripe and ready to bear fruit, we are on at the last chapter, a finale is upon us. The stage is being set in some way for the New Moon in Leo on August 14th.

Aquarius is an Air sign, known for detachment. Aquarius operates uniquely, often many steps ahead of the rest; they don’t have time to get hung up on meaningless details. Uranus is the sign’s co-ruler, so it’s no wonder why people associate Aquarius with rebels and rebellion. But Aquarius is a wonderful humanitarian sign, doing a lot of good for many.

So what does this all mean? In many people’s lives, something has definitely run it’s course. I feel that since this is happening in the sign of Aquarius, it is going to affect people on a massive scale, or have to do with a project or idea that many people have invested their time or energy in. Maybe the time has come to stop detaching, and instead we need to learn to attach (or perhaps vice versa). Venus is in retrograde after all, and a lot of people have been taking a step back and reviewing their relationships. Again, since Uranus is the co-ruler of Aquarius, something completely unexpected my pop up, and end just as quickly.

I find it somewhat ironic that when I turned on the news this morning, they were talking about finding new debris from the missing Boeing 777, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that disappeared somewhere in the Indian Ocean. Some feel that airplanes and advanced technology fall under the sign of Aquarius, and with Uranus Rx, and the Full Moon in Aquarius, a part of me wonders if we will find out more about the plane’s mysterious disappearance?

Full Moons often bring about endings in order for you to plant fresh seeds at the following New Moon, so keep this mind if you are faced with a heavy decision to make, or you feel that a door has been unfairly closed in your face.


Uranus Stations Retrograde – Resistance is Futile – July 26th –December 25, 2015

Today one of the slow moving outer planets, Uranus, turns retrograde in the sign of Aries until December 25th, 2015.

Uranus is about freedom, independence, revolution, upheaval, individuality. Aries associations are leadership, pioneers, competition, impatience. This combination brings out a deep seated urge to “liberate” one’s self from someone or a circumstance, often in lightening-fast fashion.

When Uranus is retrograde, the “unexpected” factor linked to this planet is amplified; things suddenly “pop-up” out of nowhere at a rapid and yet unpredictable pace. Uranus, “The Great Liberator” disrupts the apple cart time and time again in order to break free of old, rigid structures in our lives, often imposed on us by Saturn. Sure, the change can be unsettling at times, because how readily do most people welcome change (especially when they have become comfortable with the same old, same old)? Change scares a lot of people, and this is why they continue to put into practice those out dated systems or methods, even though they are archaic and have lost their usefulness, or proficiency.

Best advice in this situation is to be more mutable; embrace the changes, try to go with the flow. If the Universe is actively working to change your life for the better, be glad.
