Full, Blue Moon in Revolutionary Aquarius – Free Spirit!

Astro Moon Full Blue 2Independent, unconventional, Air sign Aquarius gives us a Full Moon on Friday July 31, 2015. Since this is the 2nd round, lunar orb in the same month, it’s called a “Blue Moon”. (The previous Full Moon was in Capricorn on July 01, 2015. The next will be in 2018.) The humanitarian, 11th sign of the Zodiac encourages spontaneous change, community activism, group fun with a purpose and just contribution in general.

Just a reminder – a ”Full” Moon phase packs power and can give our thoughts clarity. It starts the “waning” or decreasing period, on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters. This can be a great time to gather and tally results or confront the useless – clean up old projects, get rid of outmoded thought patterns and  attitudes in order to clear the way for the “New” Moon in 2 weeks.

Aquarius Blue Moon: 7/31/15 – 6:43 AM EDT * 3:43 AM PDT

 

 

Sun Sashays Into Leo 7/22/15

astrology_chartwheel 2Good day Sunshine as we all experience the generous, attention seeking, creative and full of a lion’s pride Leo energy for the next few weeks. The Sun will be in the Fire sign that it rules until 8/23/15. Upbeat, dramatic and drawn to the spotlight, when the Sun struts into this regal Fire sign, regardless of your actual birth date, expect to have some fun for the duration of its stay. (Don’t be surprised if there are sudden, unexplained cravings for sparklers, sequins and confetti. Just go with it.)

Relationship interactions may become livelier and more colorful due to communication planet Mercury’s transit of the the 5th sign of the Zodiac beginning 7/22/15 until 8/8/15. Remember to share the conversation, let someone else get a word in it’s not all about you.

Planet Jupiter, big in size and attitude, will remain in Leo until August 11, 2015. Feelings of confidence, good fortune and largess are all traits associated with this planet and when it visits Leo, about every 12 years, the possibilities for optimism and creativity are endless. Wherever it appears in your chart, focus will be on Jupiter’s themes of expansion, bigger is better, etc. Money will be very easy to throw around, so rein in the urge to show off. People will be drawn to you regardless.

This can be a joyful, full of yourself time!

Sun into Leo: July 22, 2015 * 11:31PM EDT / 8:31PM PDT

*Gemstone – Tiger’s Eye *Power colors- Gold, orange (Sun colors) * Body Part – Heart (…of a lion!)

**BTW: The date when the Sun transits into a sign can fluctuate year to year – from the 19th to the 23rd. If born on one of these days, you are considered a cusp baby – close to two signs- but regardless, there is only one Sun sign in an Astrology chart  (however, the individual will often exhibit a combo of characteristics from both signs).

New Moon In Sensitive Cancer 7/15/15

Astro New Moon CrescentEvery month, when both luminaries, Sun and Moon, are in the same sign, the Moon is designated as “New”. Since the Lunar orb rules emotional, nurturing, Water sign Cancer, the energy is in full caring, helicopter mode. Don’t be surprised if you have urges to cook, fluff pillows, press cold damp cloths on heated brows. People can still be made “comfy” during hot, humid weather.

As always when the Moon is “New”, being inventive and creative is highlighted. So, be that with those that you are taking care of and feeding – new recipes to fill tummies without heaviness? new ways to keep friends and family hydrated and cool? (Invent a slushy flavor combination! )
