Today’s Full Moon
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Friday, July 23, 2021
Moon in the air sign Aquarius from this evening until late Sunday evening boosts Aquarius, and to a lesser degree, the other air signs, Gemini and Libra. Moon in Aquarius also helps any planets and points you have in Aquarius and should bring together more things for Aquarius on a short-term basis.
Moon in Aquarius supports anyone’s involvement with Aquarius-related attitudes and activities such as analyzing, observing, questioning, experimenting, and investigating; exploring what is new, novel, unusual, progressive, and nonconforming; science, technology, engineering, computers, electronics, inventions, and aviation; and working with clubs, organizations, special interest groups, and philanthropic and charitable organizations.
Today’s Full Moon
Full Moons draw attention and are thought to be a negative influence. They do intensify matters and heightened emotionality but are usually problematic only when they form a difficult aspect to a challenging planet, which is not the case with this Full Moon.
As highlighted in my last newsletter, Two Shifts, Sun entered Leo yesterday. This evening, Moon enters Aquarius at 08:12 PM and then opposes the Sun at 10:36 PM to form a Leo-Aquarius Full Moon at 01.5 degrees of Leo and Aquarius, which makes this Full Moon relevant for anyone with planets and points around 02 degrees of the Fixed signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius and the houses in your horoscope ruled by Leo and Aquarius
Here are some brief examples of how the Full Moon energies may be released according to your houses.
If your rising sign is Leo or Aquarius, the impact will be more on your identity and relationships. If Leo and Aquarius rule your second and eighth houses, the effects will likely be financially related. If Leo and Aquarius rule your third and ninth house, the impact will be on communication, learning, and travel.
If Leo and Aquarius rule your fourth and tenth house, the effects will likely relate to your home, parents, and career. If Leo and Aquarius rule your fifth and eleventh house, your relationships with your children and friends will be relevant. And if Leo and Aquarius rule your sixth and twelfth houses, the effects will be more related to your work, health, and spirituality.
Current Sun Sign Factors
The following sign assessments are only “the tip of the iceberg” for what you should know about what is occurring in your horoscope. A complete evaluation of what is happening in your horoscope is far more complex and involved than any newsletter can present. For example, there are dozens of factors besides your sun sign to consider, such as the transits to all the planets and points in your horoscope. However, merely being aware of the current transits to your Sun’s position can be invaluable because the outer planets (Uranus Neptune Pluto) create life-altering trends and events. For a complete analysis, contact me.
Venus, the planet related to love, money, and the arts, in Virgo from July 21 until August 16 brings blessings and benefits to Virgo, and, to a lesser degree, the other earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Virgo.
Mars in Leo from June 11 until July 29 energizes Leo, and to a lesser degree, helps the other fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius. During this period, Mars, the planet related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, will also challenge Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Check your planets’ positions in the above signs to know when there may be added stress, pressure, and aggravations in your life.
Jupiter, the planet of hope, expansion, optimism, opportunities, and good fortune, retrograde at 0.5 degrees Pisces brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 00 degrees Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and especially Pisces.
Saturn retrograde at 11 degrees Aquarius is likely bringing steady accomplishments for anyone born at 11 degrees Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius as well as pressures, tests, trials, delays, losses, and even harsh realities for anyone with points or planets at 11 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
Uranus at 14.5 degrees Taurus brings significant shifts, changes, adjustments, breakthroughs, and even shocks for anyone with planets and points around 15 degrees Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. Uranus in Taurus also creates possible advances, breakthroughs, and new opportunities for those with planets and points at 15 degrees Virgo and Capricorn.
Neptune retrograde at 23 degrees Pisces brings opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality for anyone born at 23 degrees Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and possible deception, confusion, weakness, and even illnesses and debilitating conditions for anyone born at 23 degrees Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
Pluto retrograde at 25.5 degrees Capricorn positively influences anyone born at 25 degrees Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. This position is also potentially challenging and transformative for those with planets and points at 25 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
The most important Moon in Aquarius lunar aspects are listed below. The descriptions do not intend to tell you what will happen in your life at the times given. Instead, they provide some of the possible influences you can expect around the times given so you can plan your life more wisely. It is often apparent which time frames are better than others for timing a party, trip, decision, project, business, or other events.
Lunar aspects are in effect for a few hours (versus days) before and until the times given for the Eastern Time Zone. Therefore, you need to adjust the times for where you live. For example, if you live on the West Coast, there is a three-hour difference, which means you need to subtract three hours.
The plus (+) lunar aspects are favorable. The minus (-) lunar aspects are more likely to bring challenges or difficulties. Sometimes there is a + and - lunar aspect, which can exhibit positive and negative influences.
Friday, July 23
08:12 PM Moon enters Aquarius, where it remains until late Sunday evening when it enters the next sign, Pisces.
10:36 PM (Moon in Aquarius 180 Sun in Leo) the exact time for the Full Moon highlighted at the top of this newsletter.
Saturday, July 24
12:33 AM + (Moon in Aquarius 150 Venus in Virgo) opportunities for cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
02:24 PM + - (Moon in Aquarius 00 Saturn in Aquarius) this once-a-month lunar aspect brings opportunities for orderly, steady, conscientious, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities. However, this aspect can also be challenging because it is emotionally restrictive and can create issues, worries, and differences.
08:42 PM - (Moon in Aquarius 90 Uranus in Taurus) opportunities for increased instincts, willfulness, and aspirations regarding anything new, different, exciting, and adventuresome. However, this aspect also brings nervousness, anxiety, upsets, restlessness, excitability, volatility, and emotionally charged situations.
Sunday, July 25
07:13 PM - (Moon in Aquarius 180 Mars in Leo) opportunities for being bolder and more direct. However, this aspect magnifies feelings, passions, motivations and brings upsets, impatience, impulsiveness, strong desires, and even anger and forceful actions.
07:47 PM Moon in Aquarius Void until 11:29 PM when it enters the next sign, Pisces.
This Void is almost four hours, so take note because there tends to be a lull in the energy levels during Void periods. What you start or implement is less likely to turn out the way you planned or expected. It’s usually better to do things with less significance or no purpose in mind versus trying to start something new and vital. If you have a new idea, meet someone new, or start a business, for example, those activities are less likely to amount to much.
Guidelines for Using This Information
These newsletters are not your typical sun sign column. They provide much more information and guidance, but it can be not easy to sort everything out with so many factors presented, even for astrology students. Therefore, I try to keep everything as clear and straightforward as possible.
The most critical factor with right timing is what is occurring in your horoscope. When negative aspects dominate your horoscope, the chances of success with right timing diminish no matter how favorable the aspects are in the sky. These newsletters cannot cover what is occurring in your horoscope. However, if you apply the information in these newsletters with common sense, you can better time your decisions and activities.
The basic premise with right timing is that it helps to have the "stars" on your side. Starting a marriage, trip, surgery, business, real estate deal, or a major purchase, for example, at an inopportune time reduces the chances of success no matter how good your intentions and how hard you try: the better the timing, the higher your chances of success. Even an hour can make a significant difference with important decisions and events.
Moon enters each sign of the zodiac about every 28 days and remains in each sign for about two and a half days. When the Moon is in your sun sign, matters are likely to come more together for you on a short-term basis unless significant aspects are currently challenging your horoscope.
The traits and qualities I assign to the signs in these newsletters describe the signs’ functions and meanings versus describing your personality. However, the descriptions may be entirely accurate for you. Furthermore, to understand a person’s personality and character from an astrological perspective, dozens of factors besides one's sun sign need to be considered.
To know what’s going on in your horoscope, and to make better decisions at better times, contact me. We will schedule a private consultation at my office or on the phone, so you can know more about your future and better understand the issues and opportunities in your life as well as your relationships, job, career, education, finances, children, parents, travel, health, location, retirement, karma, and purpose in life.
