On July 23 and 24, 2021, we reach the peak of the lunar cycle with a Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius.
This is actually one of the two full moons of Aquarius that we will experience, because next month we will also have another full moon of Aquarius.
Two successive full moons of Aquarius indicate that these moons will work in harmony with each other.
Having two full moons in Aquarius in the course of a year also puts emphasis on this zodiac sign. Aquarius is an air sign which is represented by the water carrier. The water carrier has the gift of being able to collect water, which signifies the emotions of the world, in its container and transmute them with the help of the power of air. The water carrier is then able to pour them out into the world, causing a shift in consciousness.
The asteroid Chariklo
It is this nourishing act that gives Aquarius energy a natural healing quality, and that we can connect with on this July Full Moon. This is especially true because Chariklo, the spiritual medicine asteroid is also active at this time. Chariklo represents the spiritual side of our healing journey. It allows us to venture into invisible worlds to understand the higher purpose and spiritual growth that can occur when we find ourselves in a healing crisis.
Chariklo is currently in the sign of Aquarius and in conjunction with this Full Moon, adding a calming and healing vibration. If we find ourselves on some sort of healing journey, Chariklo in Aquarius invites us to reflect on the spiritual side of our healing.
How can we understand things from the invisible lens? How can we choose to take what has happened or what we are healing, and use it as fuel for our spiritual journey?
Chariklo mixed with this Aquarian Full Moon energy also supports the search for alternative healing methods, especially those that occur at the energetic level.
Working with crystals, energy healing, reiki, channeling, vibrational medicines, and alternative therapies are likely to bring increased benefits under this Full Moon.
The energies of Pluto
While the July Full Moon provides support on our spiritual healing journey, there is also a strong transformative energy present due to Pluto’s location.
Pluto is also very active on this Full Moon and represents the process of change, or death and rebirth. Full moons tend to bring endings and completion, so we may find the ‘death’ phase of Pluto’s energy more prevalent at this time.
What must fall? What do we need to let go of in order to experience the rebirth that awaits us?
You may feel the urge to release something from your life under this Full Moon, or maybe you will start to receive intuitive whispers about some changes that need to be made.
If these changes seem intangible to you around the time of this Full Moon, don’t worry, as Aquarius’ next Full Moon in August can help you see things more clearly.
The energies of the full moon
Change is in the air under this Full Moon, and it is likely that we will be called upon to change direction, or perhaps transform and revive an area of our life that no longer works for us.
You can be proactive with this energy by using the Full Moon to think about where you would like to see changes. You don’t have to have all the answers, but keeping an open mind and staying curious about new possibilities is a good way to approach this energy.
Aquarius energy is revolutionary and likes to do things differently. It encourages us to think outside the box and turn things around in order to find a new way of doing things.
Embrace this quality when it comes to your life. See how you can break free from any old habits or rigid ideas and practices, and find a new way of seeing or doing things.
Aquarius energy is also very much about freedom, so this Full Moon can inspire us to change and let go of the things that make us feel stuck or trapped in some way.
Under the light of the Full Moon, ask yourself the question: How can I bring more lightness and ease in my life? What must I let go to achieve this? See what inspiration follows.
While the July Full Moon may set off the winds of change, as it fades we should feel lighter and freer. We may feel like we have more guidance and support to lift something that is heavy on our shoulders.
If you are looking to do energy healing work of any kind, the Aquarius Full Moon will be of tremendous support as well.
