Full Moon in Aquarius Forecasts for August 2nd to 8th, 2020

Full Moon Message from Buffalo at robinivy.blogspot.com




Sunday: The Moon will be Full on Monday at 11:59 am EDT. Today, the Moon shifts to Aquarius at 2:11 pm EDT after a meeting with Saturn retrograde in Capricorn. The Moon also passes Pluto during the overnight and opposes Mercury in Cancer at 4:53 am EDT. This is a day of renegotiating terms, plans, and contracts of any kind. Clear communication and thinking are essential. Make well thought out decisions or have similar conversations. Keep both emotions and reason in balance for best results. The Sun squares Uranus. This may create conflict or the urge to step away from what's popular, to rebel or resist. Void Moon 9:59 am to 2:11 pm and the Moon sweeps into Full Moon sign Aquarius with no aspects for the rest of the day. Getting together with like minded others is favored. Gather to brainstorm, work for the community, or just to enjoy the company of a (safely distanced) group. Today's color is Turquoise.

Monday: Aquarius Full Moon square to Uranus in Taurus brings out the outrageous, original, and challenges us to solve community and systemic issues in long term, radically different ways. Aquarius is the sign of friendship and connection to others, even those we do not know. Uranus in Taurus is about employing different techniques to move toward goals. Alternative, unusual, and visionary describe the tone a this Full Moon. See how it plays out from your point of view and local to where you are, as well as globally.  Mercury in Cancer opposes Saturn today for a continuation of yesterday's activity around well out thought decisions and also important, even life changing conversations. Tonight the Moon approaches a sextile to Mars which could be invigorating or overstimulating, depending on your mood or life's current events. Wear Full Moon White.

Tuesday: The Moon aligns with Mars in the wee hours, then Mars squares Jupiter at 9:07 am EDT. The struggles are real and actions are being called for. You could feel urgency and/or reluctancy yet be influenced by the one you don't feel. For example, you might be ready for a big change, but your partner or employer might be holding on very tightly to how things are now. Or the timing isn't syncing for the move you need to make, such as the place you want to move into isn't ready and the bank or landlord has an issue of their own to sort. Jupiter is retrograde as is Saturn, and I feel like this will delay things during this Full Moon. Later, a Moon/Venus trine may help with feelings between friends or romantic interests, and this lasts through the evening providing some relief or hope if the Full Moon has been difficult. Void Moon 5:45 pm to 10:28 pm EDT. Pisces Moon time starts, and Mercury moves to Leo at 11:32 pm EDT, which can help us move from sulky or down to optimistic and expressive. Today's color is Green.

Wednesday: Pisces Moon aligns with Uranus, a planet that's ben mentioned almost every day this week. It's an assist for deciding or dealing with feelings. It may also bring up sensitivities. Acknowledge any of this without pushing it away, being in denial, or repressing emotions. Some will have surprising and welcome releases after Full Moon. Let the tears go, if that's what you need. Paint a striking picture. Allow for your originality, unapologetically. Today's color is a very bright shade of Blue.

Thursday: Pisces Moon in harmony with Jupiter retro, Neptune, and Pluto retro, in that order. Emotional matters are #1 priority. Take care of mental wellness for you or gently care for others in need or in sadness. Creativity and intuition will be strong. Use your tarot cards or other divination. Soak in the water, bath, lake or ocean. Water element reminds us of natural shifts and offers spiritual and physical support. Wear Indigo.

Friday: This day is full of changes.  You may think you have a handle on things (or not!), and then quickly feel the opposite. To begin with, Pisces Moon aligns with Saturn retrograde in Capricorn. This is such a contrasting influence, one being all love and compassion (or wallowing), the other favoring structure and regulation. The reality is we need both, but they may not be easy to reconcile and allow for at once. Pisces Moon then squares Venus in Gemini. Relationships may feel up and down or uncertain. Though that could pass quickly as Venus changes signs at 11:21 am EDT. Back to the Moon, void of course time is just for minutes before moving to Aries at 9:05 am EDT, completely altering the tone of the day, or our mood. Aries Moon aligns with Mercury in Leo at 8:12 pm EDT for a get up and go attitude, for creativity and initiative, and for adventure and fun. At this point, we need it! Allow yourself to lighten up tonight, trying not to hang on to moods, grudges, or low expectations. Orange is today's color. 

Saturday: Aries Moon continues the uplift, forming a trine to Moon in Leo. This may help us act or decide more easily, connect with inner fire and drive, get us out of our shell or any dark place. The downside could be release of anger. If you need to, let it out safely without piling it on someone else. All in all, our energy should be better or more accessible. Do something fun, creative or adventurous. Wear Red.

Robin's Zodiac Zone July 26th-August 1, 2020

Sunday: Libra Moon and the planets in Capricorn indicate a whole lot to sort out, process and in some cases to take action on. These fixes may be temporary however. Aim to do what's most fair and equitable. Do something light and social if you can, to take your mind off things for a while. Venus says our interactions can be fun and friendly today. Void Moon starts at 9:09 pm EDT, but only until 12:12 am EDT on Monday. The oncoming Scorpio Moon is intuitive, focused and persistent so get ready for Monday. Today's color is Indigo.

Monday: Scorpio Moon through all of today and tomorrow. First, the Moon squares the Sun and we are halfway to the next Full Moon. This is strong energy and holds much to be reconciled. The Scorpio/Leo combination is highly creative and full of intention. We will not let things go easily or lightly today. If there must be a confrontation, try to end on decent terms. Jupiter aligns with Neptune and we want to heal and soothe. Venus connects with Neptune through a square which is more challenging and dares us not to run and escape if that's the easiest route. Also, be cautious with your trust and who or what you believe. The evening aspects continue the challenges and could rile things up in the form of disagreements or even fights. Do what's best for yourself and those you love on this week's early rollercoaster of emotions and events. Wear Purple.

Tuesday: Scorpio Moon and Mercury in Cancer are in harmony. One way this may come through is connection to spirit, such as spirit messages, signs, communication from the other side. It's a good day to ask for those signs or help from your guides. Family relationships are also implied, with both the living and those who passed. Communication could be serious, heavy or about family needs and changes. With Scorpio, there's always a tone of importance and depth. Jupiter, Neptune, Saturn and Pluto all are also in harmony with the Moon over the course of today, to help, heal, enhance creativity and awaken what's been sleeping or repressed. Be gentle with yourself and others and allow for the process. Today's color is Black.

Wednesday: Void Moon from 12:01 am EDT, the time of the Moon/Saturn sextile mentioned in Tuesday's forecast. At 3:25 am EDT, the Moon moves to fiery Sagittarius and aligns with the Sun almost immediately. This contributes to senses of adventure, optimism, and vitality. Get moving, read an inspiring book, and break out of a rut or unhealthy habit by trying something new.  Today's color is Orange.

Thursday: Sagittarius Moon in harmony with Mars in Aries lights a fire for what needs to be pursued or acted on right away. Neptune and Venus will be in less harmonious contact with the Moon, challenging us to follow our dreams, acknowledge differences and try to get along with others who are our opposites. Mercury is opposite Jupiter retro and in harmony with Neptune, guiding us in how to use words,  music and other techniques in order to resolve and heal.  Void Moon 8:08 pm EDT until about 8 am. Today's color is Red.

Friday: Capricorn Moon time begins at 7:58 am EDT. It's not until nearly midnight that there's a significant lunar aspect with Uranus in Taurus. Today feels like time for getting things done and also standing your ground if needed. Progress is called for as the Moon  moves toward Full. Wear Green.

Saturday: Capricorn Moon meets Jupiter and Pluto, aligns with Uranus, and Neptune, and squares Mars. Also Mercury opposes Pluto, and the Moon will pass that planet overnight tonight. Though Capricorn Moon leans toward unemotional, today will be different and deep feelings may awaken, come into play and need some resolution. It seems that this week has been stirring old wounds or unfinished business, and maybe both at once. The theme continues with another step or event in the process. Today's color is Blue.

New Moon in Cancer & Leo Time Begins: July 19th-25th, 2020

Sunday: Pause and reflect on this day before New Moon. What inner shifts are taking place as eclipse season ends? Last month we had a solar eclipse with New Moon, and now 4 weeks and one Mercury retrograde later, the effects and realizations settle in (or even reawaken!). Early July was not a favorable time for major decisions and actions. Yet sometimes we are forced to make them anyway. Is there something you'd like a re-take on? This New Moon provides a chance to reverse or yield. Today, the Cancer Moon met Mercury after midnight, aligns with erratic Uranus and squares courageous Mars. Mixed emotions and mood swings are likely. Inner conflict may include how much to retreat versus make a bold move. Mars in Aries is very much opposite Cancer Moon, and some may experience this as conflict with others who want to either push really hard or do nothing at all. Wear Orange today.

Monday: Cancer Moon opposite Jupiter and in harmony with Neptune overnight. On this day of New moon we seek healing. Both planets are retrograde, and we revisit memories, dreams, and also decisions we've made. Rather than regret, consider this a second chance New Moon. It is again in Cancer, water sign of home, family, parents (especially mother), the women in our lives, and our emotional realm. Pluto is also opposite the Moon at 5:04 am EDT, highlighting the shadows, depths and mysteries. It's a peak day for a psychic reading, for mediums to channel ancestral wisdom, and for personal meditation regarding emotional decisions.  New Moon at 1:33 pm EDT is at 28 degrees of Cancer, and following New Moon there's a Saturn retrograde opposition from Capricorn. The Saturn influence adds a level of seriousness and need for maturity and wisdom. Notice how this speaks to your current contemplation. All these retrograde planets mean we may need to reverse again later, or to be patient for the right timing. But Mercury and Venus are direct and things can't wait forever. So make the next best decision and set intentions from the purest heart space. Void Moon 1:55 pm to 4:16 pm EDT. Leo Moon takes over with brightness. But there's one more opposition today-the Sun and Saturn. This leads to immediate announcements and perhaps more confidence. Still, with all the oppositions and with Saturn involved, there's sure to be uncertainty and mixed feelings even when action is taken and matters decided. It's an eventful New Moon, for sure. Today's color is White.

Tuesday: Leo Moon waxing aligns with Mars in Aries. Brave, confident and potentially headstrong characterize this trine. It's positive for forward moves and taking responsible risks, such as trying out for something or interviewing for a new position, performing in public (or online!), or making a necessary change. Uranus in Taurus adds that sense of surprise or urgency. If it's urgency, think twice before you act. These fire signs, where Moon and Mars live, energize and inspire. Void of course Moon starts after a sextile to Venus in Gemini at 8:27 pm, signaling lots of communication, news and social connection tonight. Wear Red.

Wednesday: Leo energies intensify as the Sun changes signs at 4:37 am EDT. Babies born before that time are Cancer, and from then on, Leo. The Moon makes no major aspects and is void of course until 7:40 pm EDT. It's a great day for vacation and leisure and less reliable for business or purchases. Mercury aligns with Uranus for more surprises and changes to be announced or acted on right away. Spontaneous events, conversations and decisions are likely, though big decisions are not favored under void Moon. That ends with Virgo Moon time 7:40 pm on. Wear Gold.

Thursday: Virgo Moon aligns with Uranus in Taurus and Mercury in Cancer for a continuation of yesterday's events. Practical steps and discussions are favored. It's a problem solving day. Family and home matters should take priority. Put your feet in the sand or grass, work the garden and feel connection to the earth and water that sustain us. Wear Brown. 

Friday: Waxing Moon in Virgo squares Venus in Gemini and opposes Neptune. We'll need to be flexible as different approaches and plans will be suggested. Not everything will go over easily. If something seems too unrealistic, it probably is. Now the Moon will align with one planet after another in Capricorn between 7 am and 7 pm approximately. All are retrograde and speak of unfinished and unresolved matters that need tending to. Decisions made this summer may  not be 'permanent', but steps do need to be taken and temporary things put in place. Organize any such thing. From 7:08 pm to 9:54 pm EDT, the Moon is void of course, then shifts to Libra. Take those hours easy and plan little for tonight. Wear Blue.

Saturday: Libra Moon in harmony with the Sun overnight makes for an optimistic morning and a desire to connect with those we love or create with. Social plans, distanced appropriately of course, are favored. It's a good day for a summer gathering or wedding. Tonight, the tone changes though, and appears more challenging with a square to Mercury creating tension. Shortly before midnight, the Moon opposes Mars. It may be hard to find compromise or consensus, and arguments could heat up. Avoid confrontation or taboo topics while the astrological heat is on. Today's color is Lavender.
