A Lammas Full Moon in Aquarius 🌾⚡
















Full Lammas Moon in Aquarius

(You can find S hemisphere at bottom of page) Well the Venus Rx is certainly underway, and this month will host most of her retrograde journey, including her synodic reboot with the Sun, also called cazimi. As this one kicked off at the tip of a yod, and the South Node is in Venus ruled Libra, this retrograde star-point means business. In my own life, with my natal Venus in Leo, I've already experienced several adjustments. It's best to just take the bull by the horns and let this transit have its way with you, as old detritus is getting cleared out of our relationship field. Some relationships may end but all are getting a makeover of some sort, as is the purpose of these biennial transits. There are four retrogrades right now, creating a sensation of swimming against the current, but we are building strength because of it. Mercury has moved into Virgo, and is now heading to oppose Saturn in Pisces this week. Get really clear and precise with your words in order to not bump into the hard walls of this opposition. The Full Moon in Aquarius is always big. The water bearer brings not just the waters of humanity, but energy frequency tuning and electrical upgrades. This is a gateway Moon, flanked by Lions and Humans (Aquarius is the sign of “man”) This is a time to repair broken friendships, and to connect to your tribe. Aquarius is the sign of the future and that happens to be where we are headed. The Age of Aquarius is when we can no longer go it alone. We must find our people and learn to work together. But the Sun in Leo reminds us that we are not losing ourselves into the group, rather each person needs to keep doing their own work to shine as brightly as they can, so that our clans are a milky way of stars, helping us to see our way into the future. This is an extra special Full Moon as it coincides with Lammas or Lughnasadh, a celtic cross-quarter fire festival that celebrates the earliest first harvest and opens the doorway into Autumn in the North. It is the polarity to Imbolc or Candlemas which is the February 1 entrance into Springtime. Thus it is Imbolc for you Southern Hemisphere folk. I love this cross-quarter axis the most. Celebrate Lammas (which means loaf-mas) by gathering things that represent the coming of Autumn, such as wheat stalks, corn, berries, and pumpkins, and celebrate Imbolc by gathering things that represent the coming spring, such as snowdrops and candles. These festivals go back into time immemorial and we are linked to our ancestors as we celebrate them. “Rural people believed the Harvest Spirit dwelt in the fields, and that as the reapers cut the corn the spirit was forced to retreat into the ever-dwindling remainder. No man wished to be the one who destroyed her refuge, so the reapers took their turns to throw their sickles at the last stand of corn. It was then plaited in to a woman’s form – known as the corn-dolly or kern-baby – which represented the Harvest Spirit. This was set in a place of honour at the harvest supper” -The Reader’s Digest Folklore, Myths and Legends of Britain ——————​ Monday July 31 We round out the month with the Cap Moon conjunct Pluto square the Moon’s Nodes, which is a serious day and connects us to the deeper reason for this current incarnation, What did you come here to do? This is soul school, are you doing your homework? Moon trine Uranus says get excited about your bigger assignment (which can be found in a chart using your nodes, something that gets talked about in a natal reading). Venus quincunx Moon Pluto says don't shy away from intense emotional experiences as we grow soo much through them Mars trine Jupiter in Taurus tells us that taking calculated risks can be very fruitful, so lean into the emotional work at hand and let it change you from the inside out. Lammas/lughnasadh is really a span of days and this nite is the beginning.

Tuesday August 1 Happy Lammas! To celebrate we have a Full Moon at 9 Aquarius, at 11:30 am PDT in the axis of royalty. The Sun and Moon are making a square to Jupiter in Taurus and this is a playful, electric, friendship oriented Moon that is made for fun and indulgence and some irreverent humor, ala Aquarius Venus is still vibrating with the Yod, so all things love are very heightened, and she is as well as heading into another square with Uranus, indicating that any stagnancy will not be allowed. This astrology says breakups and breakthroughs are equally likely. Mercury in Virgo is opposing Saturn in Pisces rx so communication is like walking a tightrope, only honesty and clarity will work, anything else will spiral out into negative chaos.

Wednesday August 2 The Newly waning Moon makes an opposition to Venus rx today stimulating affections but potentially emotionally messy. If you get into trouble, don't let the Aquarius Moon tempt you into checking out. Stay connected to your heart. TRy and have your heart and mind work together. As the Moon & Venus both t-square Uranus, the big message is that your relationships need and want to be ungraded. Any that refuse may not succeed past this Venus rx. As the Moon trines the karmic South Node, the Dragon’s tail will help this process by sweeping away old stagnant patterns. Thursday August 3 After the crystalline Aquarius Moon, she now enters mystical Pisces and we soften up, for a minute anyway before she sidles up to stern Saturn as they both oppose Mercury in Virgo. Now we tune into the overstory work we are all engaged in for the next two years, of bringing a serious approach to manifesting our dreams out in the real world. Mercury is Virgo is brilliant but can be sharp tongued in an attempt to get it right, especially opposed to Saturn. Use this to polish up your own mind, thoughts and words, rather than turning it outwards and policing everyone else. Friday August 4 The sweet Pisces Moon links up with Neptune today and we are all taking a dip into the waters of wonderland. There is a reemphasizing of the inconjunct to Venus rx, which may result in feeling needy for love and attention, but unable to overcome the inherent tension, so a critical point may be reached today where something’s gotta give to restore the relationship balance. Saturday August 5 All hail the Aries Moon as the lunar zodiac reboots once again. We shake off the Neptunian glitter and rise tall and face reality with a sword, defending and protecting whatever is in need. The trine to the Leo Sun is a lot of fun. It's summertime in the northern hemisphere but heading towards autumn, so this is a fantastic summertime Saturday to have a lot of boisterous outdoor fun. Sunday August 6 The Aries Moon is with Chiron rx today and we may feel the sharp edges of any unhealed wounds or situations. As the North Node trines Venus we are given glimmers of what it could be like if we are willing to do the work required to restore relationship balance. The Sun in Leo squares Jupiter today which is a big ebullient burst of optimism, fun, and good feelings. It's pretty much the opposite of the Moon Chiron vibe. So go with the day knowing that both aspects would like to be expressed and used in good ways.

Monday July 31

We come back down to Earth and practical concerns today as the Cap Moon trines Mars & Mercury. This is CEO boss energy and it wants to be used to get your shit together and do something tangible and important. We have both a barrier to receiving emotional support as the Moon sextiles Saturn as well as open minded positivity of the Moon trine Jupe.
