A heavily aspected Capricorn Full Moon asks you to take stock of your productivity and accomplishments. Seven Venus and Sun aspects catalyze relationships, creativity, money and vitality. And five aspect patterns offer up a smorgasbord of energies that you can use for your highest good.
Starting with this forecast, I plan to use chart images for aspect patterns, New and Full Moons, and other significant astrological events. I hope you find them helpful!
Venus is involved in four aspects this week, mostly from slower planets. This means that the core themes Venus represents – relationships, creativity and money – may be prominent in your experience.
The love goddess jumps in and makes two of those aspects today. A Venus-Uranus sextile supports relating and creating in ways that uniquely fits you. And be sure to follow your intuitive flashes, especially when they relate to a core Venusian theme.
A Venus-Saturn quincunx may foment challenge in the areas Venus represents. Make appropriate course adjustments, then persevere with steadfastness to get Saturn on your side.
Stay open to innovative adjustments in your feminine assertiveness as Pallas Athena quincunxes Uranus.
Pallas Athena isn’t just connecting with Uranus today. She’s also part of a peaking T-square with Venus and Chiron which started on 7/2 and ends on 7/13.
The key themes of this Venus-Pallas Athena-Chiron T-square are wounded feminine assertiveness and difficulty communicating your female identity. If these themes are being triggered, they’re only coming up for healing. You may find my all-purpose healing invocation helpful.
Venus’ third aspect of the week is a Venus-Chiron square, which is part of the Venus-Pallas Athena-Chiron T-square that peaked yesterday.
What transformations and adjustments can positively transform your domestic life, committed relationships and sexuality? Consider making them now with Pluto quincunx Juno.
Venus is the aspect queen this week, but the Cancerian Sun runs a close second with three aspects of its own. It fires up two of them today, starting with a Sun-Uranus square. Taking a turn toward life-affirming paradigm shifts and revolution is supported, especially if family or nurturing is involved.
The potential instability of this Sun-Uranus square is tempered by a stabilizing Sun-Saturn trine. This aspect can support Steady Eddie productivity.
The Sun’s final aspect of the week is a Sun-Chiron trine. This is generally supportive of mentoring and healing, with a special nod toward healing within the family structure.
The Grand Trine & Kite that started on 7/1 peak today and wrap up on 7/17. Healing and nurturing energy flows smoothly and easily from this harmonious formation of the Sun, Saturn, Chiron and Pallas Athena.
Learn more about this Grand Trine and Kite.
Watch out for feminine wounding – in which the feminine could be victim or victimizer – with Chiron opposing Pallas Athena. This aspect also carries healing opportunities. To learn more about them, read about the Kite which contains this opposition.
Brilliance, ingenuity, breakthrough thinking and intuitive flashes. What more could you want from Geminian Mercury quintile Uranus?
What adjustments are needed to improve the structure of your home life and committed relationships? Tune into your intuitive flashes for the what and how as Juno, Saturn and Uranus form a Yod. This “finger of God” aspect pattern starts today, peaks on 7/16 and ends on 7/20.
A Full Moon shines forth at 7:25 AM (20°3′ Capricorn ). Evaluate your productivity, maturity, responsibility, time management and ambition and make appropriate adjustments.
This lunation aspects most of the planets and points in the sky! This gives it a rich and multi-layered interpretation. For starters, a Pluto conjunction energizes healing and transformation, while a Uranus square calls for paradigm shifts.
Several other planets and points are also square the luminaries. Mars wants to start something new, while Ceres offers the potential for abundance. Vesta wants to perform sacred service, while the lunar nodes ask whether your actions are in harmony with your life purpose.
All the members of the Kite that peaked on 7/9 also aspect this Full Moon, adding healing, nurturing and more into the mix.
Full Moons are more about harvesting and releasing than new beginnings. But you can use this lunation’s “new beginning” aspects to consciously release the outworn things that no longer support your enthusiastic evolution.
This Full Moon’ s Sabian Symbol is, “A relay race.” This image carries a straightforward message: you don’t have to do it all yourself! Call upon your allies when appropriate, and cultivate more helpers if you need them.
Mercury transits Cancer today through 7/31, supporting nurturing communication and family sharing.
Relationships and creativity can enjoy a harmonious flow with Venus trine Mars, Venus’ fourth and final aspect this week. With Venus in Gemini, imaginative writing is supported, along with a potpourri of creative expression!
It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.
- 7/8, 6:33 pm – 9:26 pm (Sagittarius)
- 7/10, 8:20 pm – 11:26 pm (Capricorn)
- 7/12, 9:57 pm – 11:08 pm (Aquarius)
