Friday, July 31st: The Moon occupies Aquarius, the sign known as the disseminator of knowledge, for the whole day.
The Moon opposes the Sun, 5:43 AM: This is the Full Moon and it is known as a Blue Moon since it is the second full Moon occurring in the same calendar month. Our energy levels are very strong this morning and we are mostly focused on what our own emotional needs and desires are. Allow the full Moon to show you new ideas and new people that can support and champion your causes. On the dark side, narcissism and histrionics can also be produced by this planetary combination. For the rest of us, if you see some drama, turn right.
Venus, planet of personal desire and jealousy, retrogrades back into Leo, at 10:27 AM, for a 10-week stay. Venus in Leo indicates a time to remain focused on what really satisfies us and what makes up our sense of personal identity. This can be a delightful time where we lavish our inner child with anything that she wants. Because of the retrograde, we will be remembering both the times our needs were met, and the times our needs were denied. The retrograde Venus helps us to focus on having a better relationship with ourselves.
The Moon opposes Mercury, 9:26 PM: Our last aspect for the evening will have us looking for entertainment, distraction, or just doing something different to change up our routines. All of us will need some conversation and social interchange as these two planets combine.
All times are CDT.
