Aquarius Full Moon calls for universal love

This intense week begins with the Leo Sun having an inquisitive debate with the lord of the underworld.  Who does that?  

Isn’t it just like a Leo to insist that Darth Vader come out and show himself!  With Leo’s courage shining on us, we peer into the heart of darkness, and there we see the fires of our own creativity.  

The Leo Sun’s sidekick this week is Messenger Mercury.  Still retrograde until August 7th, Messenger Mercury’s helping us rely on our intuition and gather our courage. Both these guys are firing off information and bright ideas faster than you can sort them, especially around Wednesday’s Full Moon in intelligent Aquarius.  Pace yourself.
 
The Force of courage is with you.
Here’s your personal horoscope for the week of July 29th:

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
Your week kick starts when your strong willpower gets a shot of courage from the god of lightning beginning 10:22 PM, PDT Monday.  Your days end on an ingenious note of creativity and surprises--even in your dreams.  Your active mind is still fired up by a creative Mercury in Leo, although you’ll be reviewing and revising your thoughts until August 8th when you’ll put ideas into action.  This week has a jovial and generous Full Moon in Aquarius on Wednesday turning your attention to humanitarian projects.  Conversations with friends will be more personal, and touch you at a deeper level.  It’s also a time that patterns, left over from childhood, need to be put away.  

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The week starts on a serious note when a reserved Capricorn Moon adds depth of feeling to the questions you’ve been asking yourself (1:03 PM, PDT Monday).  Turning over the rocks of the past, peering underneath memories, you call out old conditioning and free yourself from fear.  Your professional life is spotlighted on Wednesday when the Aquarius Full Moon lands in your house of career.  Your feelings will take center stage, whether you want to or not.  Those feelings are likely to be about the welfare of everyone, laced with your generosity and love.  

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
The goddess of love stays in your sign until August 7th, so soak up her fun and pleasure.  On Tuesday she helps you take a sober look at romance, and put orderly structure into your art (12:39 AM, PDT Tuesday).  Just don’t let this dampen your mood.  Getting away from it all is what you need to do Wednesday when the Moon is Full in your compatible sign, Aquarius.  Some generous help comes your way, and you break with routine.  Restless, you’ll look for excitement and travel.  At the very least, you’ll find it in a good book!

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Putting good orderly direction into your life’s plans will come easily for you as this week opens, even though the tome is quite serious.  Midweek has loads of emotional intensity for your when the Full Moon in Aquarius draws some powerful people who will have a strong effect on you.  You’d like to cling to something familiar, but it’s as if someone else has hijacked your favorite childhood memories.  The only way out is to let go.  Friday brings you peace when the Moon swims into the watery poetry of your friend, Pisces.  Sympathy and understanding are yours.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
With both the Sun and Messenger Mercury in Leo, you are throwing out creative sparks that light up miracles for others to see.  Wednesday’s Full Moon in Aquarius sets the stage for emotional confrontations with marriage partners or personal business relationships.  Looking at collective interests, versus your own agenda, gets you the cooperation you need.  Use your courage and the good luck you’ll have from generous Jupiter to bridge the considerable distance between heads and hearts.  

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Your week begins on a serious note, especially as the Moon moves into sure-footed, earthy Capricorn on Monday.  Still, it brings a good dose of common sense and a grounding rod for your feelings.  You’ll need to hold on to this when the Full Moon in Aquarius arrives Wednesday evening at 8:28 PM PDT.  The intellectual reserve of Aquarius could tempt you to repress your feelings with an “I’m fine thank you,” and then try to distract yourself with daily necessities.  Friday you’ll try a little tenderness when the Moon slides into compassionate Pisces.  

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Sunday afternoon finds you bothered by the messiness of your unmade bed, or you can can relax into letting it beckon you for a serious nap.  Serious Saturn in Libra is actually putting order and harmony in your life, step by baby step.  Wednesday’s Full Moon in Aquarius at 8:28 PM will fall in your 5th solar house of creativity, romance and children.  Don’t even bother to try hiding your feelings from others, they’re on your sleeve!  Your need to just be yourself is very strong.  In love, you have experiences of greater emotional depth than usual.  Very intense feelings will show you something important about yourself.  

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
You have an extremely emotional response to beauty and harmony which you turn into artistic ability.  Sensitivity to the needs of others underlies you very affectionate mood this week.  Wednesday’s Full Moon in Aquarius at 8:28 PM will fall in your 4th solar house of home and family.  Expect culminating events related to your family, especially your mother, that will affect your mood very strongly.  However, this yin energy in your home can be most creatively expressed by inviting friends over to share some good comfort food.  You feel like being a friend to everyone, without singling out anyone in particular as “special.”  It’s a good week for creating a social gathering, especially in your home.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Freedom is the watchword for Aquarius as well as Sagittarius.  This week is loaded with luck, generosity, and a humanitarian spirit.  The only downside for you with Wednesday’s Full Moon in airy Aquarius (8:28 PM PDT) is getting yourself stuck in an aloof position of stubbornly fighting for your right to come and go as you please.  You’ll be operating on “gut” feelings, which are likely to be quite subjective.  This will be a time of very meaningful communications, all with deep emotions.  You’ll take nothing and no one at face value.  You’re in a tunneling operation, as you persist in wanting to know what’s at the bottom of things.  

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
The week opens on a serious note, even before the Moon moves into your steady and sure-footed sign on Monday at 12:30 PM, PDT.  This Capricorn Moon adds more depth of feeling to an already conscientious an orderly tone set Sunday by Stern Saturn.  You’ll be turning over the rocks, ready to know that thing you wish you didn’t have to know.  Naturally this elicits some jittery nerves on the way to the Full Moon in Aquarius which occurs Wednesday at 8:28 PM PDT.  This marks a time of culmination for matters affecting your resources and finances.  You may experience a feeling of being very attached to some possessions.  Memorabilias will attract your attention.  It’s a bad time for spending money, since your choices will be emotionally laden--even overwhelming logic and common sense.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Freedom is the watchword for this week.  You share your love of freedom with Sagittarius, who always travels with the sign, “Don’t Fence Me In!”  And will good-naturedly debate it with you.  But others will find that this week in particular, if they try to limit your freedoms, you’ll simply walk away.  Wednesday’s Full Moon in your sign at 8:28 PM PDT, opens a period when you turn on your emotional sensors and aim them at your friends and loved ones.  You want to feel that you belong.  You’re right there for those who need sympathy and support, but you require that it be a two-way street.  

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)
Serious Saturn put a somber tone on the beginning of the week--but it’s perfect for taking a quiet look at where you’re going in your life.  Your emotional capacity to empathize with the needs of humanity is greatly heightened by Wednesday’s Full Moon in Aquarius at 8:28 PM PDT.  Still, you’ll be tempted to withdraw and try to keep your feelings hidden.  This Moon has a benevolent blessing from Jupiter, helping you raise your insecurities to the light of day where they’ll surely vanish!  Friday you come into your own, feeling in sync with yourself, when the Moon slides into your empathic Pisces waters.
