Independent, 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
On Wednesday July 1, the Sun is in Cancer, the Lunar orb is lit up in the opposite sign, Capricorn– it’s that Full Moon time again! This matters to us why? Contrary to popular folklore, a round Moon is not a time for werewolf/Vampire reveals, but it is a good time to tap into its “finish what you started” energy. So, handle what needs to be done. Complete any projects that have been hanging over your head.
The Zodiac sign that houses the “Full” phase has its traits and characteristics heightened for a few weeks. The Saturn ruled, Earth sign Capricorn is about status, authority, duty and work.
The basics: Ambition as a ways to support yourself and family – now and in the future. Career means what – to you? Success means what – to you? Are your actions and strategies producing the financial results wanted? Think about it. (If there are any changes or innovations that need to be done, wait until the “New” Moon on July 15th. Its energy works well for creation and beginnings.)
*Capricorn Full Moon: 7/1/15 – 5:11AM EDT / 2:11AM PDT
On Tuesday June 2, 2015, the Sagittarius Moon is fully lit by the Sun in its opposite sign of Gemini – very dramatic, but nothing to fear. (No fangs or hairy knuckles.) A “Full” phase is a time to look for results– we start to see the end product of what ideas/efforts were begun at the time of the New Moon back on 5/18/15.
With adventurous, upbeat Sagittarius, we have activity, an “of course good things can happen” outlook and a willingness to go for miracles – which can come in handy when edging a project toward fruition. However, since mercurial Mercury (communication, tech stuff, transportation) is still Retrograde until 6/11/15, do sweat the details, research big plans and ideas to be sure they are on track and feasible. If it seems, “too good to be true…”
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, at “Full” phase the Moon is “waning”, on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters, therefore, we could feel its effects for about another 2 weeks.
*Sagittarius Full Moon: June 2nd – 12:19 PM EDT / 9:19 AM PDT
The Taurus Sun is reflected in the opposite Scorpio Moon = a beautiful Full orb in the passionate, emotional 8th sign of the Zodiac. Ruled by transformational planet Pluto, (traditional ruler is warrior planet Mars) there are deep feelings, focus and determination influencing us during this lunar phase with energy to spare. A Full Moon is a good time to figure out what to keep and what to throw away (discard whatever is no longer meaningful, useful, and / or beneficial.) Gauge what has been accomplished since the New Moon and move on to finalize and complete tasks in the next few weeks.
Scorpio also pushes us to focus on money matters that may involve others. Are there any financial issues that need to be cleared or settled– taxes, business ventures? Does anyone owe you anything? Time to collect?

A Full Moon will be in classy Libra on April 4, 2015. This Air sign is ruled by the lovely Venus and hopefully this will make us more inclined to cooperate with partners, seek balance in negotiations, and remain calm during deliberations.
A great time to do all of the above while being super social, beautifying both ourselves and our surroundings at the same time. If the Libra Moon can help us tune out / tone down any negative, angry voices around us (or in our heads), terrific.
And, have a great weekend!

FYI: As I’ve mentioned in this space before, a ”Full” Moon phase packs power and can give our thoughts clarity. It starts the “waning” or decreasing, of the Lunar orb, a good time to gather 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 next “New” Moon in 2 weeks.
Tuesday’s Full Moon, 2/3/15, will be in dramatic, Fire sign Leo – no better way to heat up, perk up a long winter! A “Full” phase intensifies the traits of the sign it is visiting and with Sun ruled Leo, (its Zodiac symbol is the glorious Lion, King of the jungle) we feel generous, creative and get the urge to flame and sparkle while flitting across the world stage. (“Look at me!”).
So take that spotlight, wear some regal purple, be royally magnanimous to your subjects (friends and family) and have a great time. Also, use the Full Moon’s energy to finish projects begun at the time of the last New Moon (1/20/15). Its considered a fortunate time to complete things and it will last for about 10 days even as the Moon moves into practical Virgo on Wednesday.

The first Full Moon of the year occurs on Sunday, January 04, 2015 in the sensitive, family and home focused Water sign of Cancer. As a “New” Moon is best for beginning projects- starting something new, implementation of ideas – the “Full” phase (Moon opposes the Sun in the sky, as it “wanes” on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters) is optimum for the finalization of projects, clearing up messes, etc. Finishing touches are best done during the last 2 weeks of Moon quarters. The cycle begins again at the next New Moon phase – January 20.
When Cancer is involved, completing old business may have something to do with where you live – cleaning out the old, giving space to the new. Gather and give away anything no longer useful or positive in your space; whether it be things, feelings or conversations. It’s a good time to tie up any loose ends of DIY projects that just keep hanging on.

A Full Moon in Gemini starts off our weekend on Saturday December 6, 2014. The Luminaries are opposite each other: the Sun has been in Sagittarius since Nov 22nd and the Lunar orb is in its partner sign of Gemini. While the Moon is in the versatile 3rd sign of the Zodiac, clever verbal/ written exchanges, versatility/flexibility and the desire to travel and be with people are enhanced. As always with a “Full” phase, finish and complete any old projects hanging around. Clear out any debris to make room for what’s next.
On Sunday morning, the Moon shifts to Moon ruled, Water sign Cancer. However, Full Moon influences will remain for the next 10 days, so be prepared for the Capricorn New Moon on December 21, 2014.

This month’s Full Moon, a total Lunar Eclipse (Blood Moon), is in Fire sign Aries. The 1st sign of the Zodiac is ruled by “Warrior” planet Mars. Combustible, physical and aggressive, this sign’s usual “in your face” traits will be intensified by the power of a “Full” phase and also by unpredictable transiting Uranus. Even though currently retrograde, until 12/21/14, it still can be full of surprises and urges for revolution.
Do the suggested Full Moon things – finish up old projects, clarify any fuzzy ideas that keep hanging around (remember Mercury is Retrograde now, so this is a good time to review). Use the extra Aries energy and take action. By clearing out useless stuff, you create space for the “new” ideas, things, spaces, people. However, forceful Aries can be a little over the top sometimes. Don’t torch everything while trying to weed out the old, think things through before the ashes start to float around.

Get a grip. Monday’s Full Moon in sensitive, emotional Water sign Pisces is wonderful for creativity and connecting with others, but sometimes not so much for staying grounded in what is actually happening. Be as imaginative, caring and compassionate as you wish, just don’t be taken in by any “too good to be true” promises or “poor me” scenarios. Be present, stay in the moment – dismiss any escapist urges. Reality may often bite, but it can be handled without mind altering options. Take care of your inner self. You matter.
When the Moon is “Full”, the Sun is directly opposite and lights it up. Rather than the more familiar crescent shape, we see it round and beautiful. The Lunar orb is “waning” on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters, making it a good time to finish up old projects, clean up messes that you have been staring at for the past few weeks.
BTW – “Harvest” is any Full Moon that occurs closest to the Vernal or Autumnal Equinox. (Which will happen when the Sun moves into Air sign Libra on 9/22/14).
Full Moon Pisces: 9/8/14 9:38PM EDT / 6:38PM PDT
