With the Moon in Capricorn, we become aware of the need for structure and planning ahead. We also instinctively are aware of the limitations of time. We are motivated by a desire for success. Achievement and manifestation are most important to us now. We are resourceful and don’t want to waste time, energy, or resources. This can be a very sober influence or even a depressing one. However, it can also be a productive time when we look reality in the eye. There is an increase in formality, strictness and exactitude, with a tendency to reserve and distance. Rules and regulations are dominant. It is a suitable time for all activities which require extra responsibility and discipline, practical undertakings, career issues, making a business plan and practical investments.
Attraction to all that is new and unusual and an instinctive need for improvement, characterize the Moon in Aquarius. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional, and interactions are more impersonal. This is a good time for social gatherings, dealing with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas, and progressive changes. There is an increased interest in knowledge and a need to communicate with like-minded individuals. At the same time, your desire for freedom and independence is strengthened, and you will want to establish your own rules. It is a good period for reading, study and scientific pursuits. However, activities which require subordination and discipline, as well as jobs which bore you, will go from bad to worse now.
Aug 15 - Full Moon in Aquarius
This full moon on 15 August 2019 falls at 22º Aquarius decan 3 and pits the serious and principled qualities of Aquarius against the Sun in playful, creative Leo. The spirited Sun has strong backup from nearby Venus in Leo that emphasises an almost childlike innocence and joy. The more sensible and adult Aquarius Moon seems at risk of being outnumbered out on its own trying to make a serious point. Yet the Moon, Sun, and Venus are all in a t-square to asteroid Vesta in Taurus, suggesting that no single cosmic body among them has a huge advantage when it comes to harmony with others as there are tensions in all directions. During the Full Moon in Aquarius, you may notice how your input on an issue has generated change for the collective good. Whether you have taken on the fight of the century or confronted a local community issue, you should feel pleased that you have made a difference in your corner of the world. Change is something that people generally try to avoid but now is a great time for all kinds of change whether its to do with your style or personality, or how you relate with your friends or partner. Continue the process even further. Rely on friends for their support. Be completely open to quick flashes of insight and offbeat ideas. This could feel awkward for some of us, but it might work out for the best, particularly if there seems to be no way at this time for everyone to see eye to eye. Finding peace, may be a matter of accepting the differences between us and agreeing to disagree. You may already be experiencing stress, anxiety and unexpected changes in your love life from the July 31 new moon. This highlights the need for patience, understanding, and unconditional love over the coming two weeks. Sun conjunct Venus focuses attention on your love life, creativity, and finances. On its own, this is a peaceful, harmonious, affectionate, and sociable influence, a good omen for friendship and romance. But the polarity created by the full moon can bring relationship tension and financial pressures. For karmic reasons, someone may come into your life, cause drama and then leave. Are you drawn to certain people just to fulfill some hidden emotional need? You could also form relationships with people who try to control you, invade your privacy and take away your freedom.
We are not inclined to want to face reality while the Moon is in dreamy, impressionable Pisces. It can be a wistful, sensitive, intuitive, and compassionate time. This brings an increase of emotions and a receptivity to other peoples' feelings. You will have a desire to be of help, and you may be willing to sacrifice something for the sake of others. Your emotions predominate over common sense, so it is better to do things which require imagination and inspiration, rather than reason and cool logic. Your body may be more responsive than usual to alcohol, drugs and medicines, so beware of overdoses. The Moon in Pisces generally favors imaginative undertakings, mystical or spiritual pursuits, inner development, music or water activities.
With the Moon in Aries we are motivated by a strong desire to start fresh. A gut instinct to start something new is with us now, as well as stronger ambitions. An increase of activity, impulsivity, striving, and energetic action. This Moon favours activities which demand courage, decisiveness, swiftness and initiative, but anything which requires patience, diligence and diplomacy is more difficult now. The Moon in Aries generally favors actions that yield immediate results, self-assertion and taking on challenges. It is a good time for athletics, starting new projects and for solving problems by brainstorming.
This is a good time to get a better idea of where you are right now and how you have fulfilled the deeper aspects of yourself. You want to understand and higher realm of reality emotionally and intellectually. It is a good time for meditation and reflection and you may feel a kind of romantic idealism and you feel like you want put others needs before your own.
