Full Moon in Aquarius – July 28

What it all means for lovers …
The New Moon in Cancer on the 12th brings with it a maternal feeling – a need to care for your other half and be more sympathetic to their needs and wants. Sometimes we don’t listen enough to what is being said and asked for and our partners get frustrated due to our lack of seeming concern and offers of help. Be sure to be on the lookout for any situation crying out for guidance mid-month Cancers and if you can be of help or at least provide moral support, all the better.
Venus the lover spends the first half of July in big hearted Leo, the sign represented by the lion and a sign Venus loves to be in. This is a great time for singles to meet someone worth meeting – whether out and about or via a social app. While it’s always nice to meet someone IRL (in real life), it seems to have become a worldwide phenomenon that dating apps are taking the place of IRL encounters. There’s an app for everything these days!
Once Venus the planet of relationships moves into Virgo on the 11th, things are not going to be as serious or dramatic in the love life department as they have been whilst in Leo. In fact many of you will be dealing with more of the basic stuff in your partnership versus the hot and heavy stuff. Like where is the relationship going? Are you both on the same track? Are you feeling good about your financial status and each other’s financial status? Venus is not only the Goddess of love but she also rules over finances as well. If you feel or your partner feels as if they are doing all the heavy lifting financially, this is a good time to sit down and talk things through once Venus moves into Virgo on the 11th. It’s an especially good time for the earth and water signs to make sure that they are on the right track.
Aries, Aquarius, Librans and Sagittarians all benefit from Venus in Leo so make sure you are looking for someone perfect and someone you love to hang out with. Leo makes falling in love and being a social butterfly fun and with Venus in Leo, even more so. Just be aware that with Venus in Leo, things can get serious quickly and you might end up wishing you had gotten to know someone a bit better before committing yourself so quickly to him or her.
Mercury, the planet of chit chat spends most of the month in Leo before going out of phase on the 26th in Leo. For Leos, Aquarius, Aries and Sagittarius especially, this means you have to really think long and hard before you speak and if you don’t have anything nice to say or constructive to say…well don’t say anything at all. Whenever Mercury is out of phase Murphy’s Law of ‘whatever can go wrong will go wrong’ is in full effect. As much as you feel you’re saying the right thing, it might come out completely twisted and you will have to spend quite a bit of time trying to fix things and turn them around.
Jupiter, the planet of luck and optimism finally moves direct in sexy Scorpio July 10. Having been out of phase since early March, this is a great planetary move for Scorpios, Taureans, Capricorns and Cancers, particularly around that Cancer New Moon on the 12th which is a nice coincide event.
Unfortunately passion planet Mars remains out of phase in Aquarius through the month, so for those couples looking to amp up their love and sex lives (particularly the air signs – Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) and Aries, the sign Mars rules. You might have to try a lot harder than usual. It can’t be forced either – it has to be a legitimate passionate experience and not one where you are simply going through the motions. Mars is out of phase in Aquarius through August 14 then backtracks into Capricorn through the end of August. So more on Mars and his planetary influence next month as well.
Speaking of Aquarius, the Aquarius Full Moon July 28 helps bring something to a close – something has maybe needed closure for some time. Ruled by Uranus, the planet of the unexpected and surprises, along with Mercury and Mars out of phase, the last few days of July could be very telling indeed to everyone.

What it all means…
The time for communication is now. With the Sun and Mercury in Gemini, the messenger of the zodiac and a New Moon on the 13th in Gemini, there is something to be said for airing out your dirty laundry, having your say and voicing your opinion early on in June.
Mercury is in Gemini for the first half of June, so it’s vital that if you do have something to say to someone – your partner/lover/friend/co-worker, it’s a good idea to say it during the first half of the month. Around the time of the New Moon in Gemini on June 13 is ideal. It’s all in the way you approach the discussion and the way you word what you have to say and the timing. The tone of your voice is everything too. The Universe is giving us a gift with all of this simultaneous activity in Gemini, so let’s use it wisely.
Once Mercury moves out of Gemini he moves into moody Cancer through the end of June, so it won’t be as easy to speak freely and let your conversations ease into each other as there will be a lot more emotion involved. And as we are all aware, speaking with your emotions involved is a lot different than withholding your emotions and working on getting your facts straight and organized. The facts tend to get distorted, issues from the past are brought up and words and actions are taken out of context. Especially when love and intense feelings are involved.
Venus the planet of love and relationships spends the first half of June in Cancer and then moves into fiery Leo, the sign that is ruled by the heart. These 2 planets are as far apart as can be – however the interesting thing is that Cancer is the sign of the mother and Leo is the sign of the father in astrology. So June is very much a nurturing month when it comes to love and relationships. In Leo people are more prone to rushing into love and relationships. You might go on a date or two with someone and decide he or she is the ‘one’ without spending enough time with them or enough thought to really make sure it’s going to work out. While Venus in Cancer is looking for more of a spiritual and emotional connection, Venus in Leo is looking for a more lustful and exciting relationship, full of fireworks and sparks. You will have a chance to experience both ends of the spectrum this month.
Mars the planet of passion, self-defense, energy and exuberance has been in Aquarius since mid-May and remains in Aquarius through the 26th of June before turning retrograde and going out of phase through August 27. In myth and legend, Mars, the god of war was mated with Venus, the Goddess of love, so he was considered to be both a lover and a fighter. Once he turns retrograde in Aquarius, an air sign that is a true visionary and an ‘outside the box’ thinker however, there will definitely be a subtle shift that will make people less likely to jump into passionate relationships and to be a lot more curious about other people that come into their lives.
Interestingly enough, Mars in Aquarius, Venus in Leo and Uranus in Taurus are all in stubborn and fixed signs this month. There is definitely going to be a sense of people wanting to do their own thing and remaining true to who they are and what they believe in. Be careful that you don’t miss out on something simply because you are being stubborn and refusing to see the bigger picture. You might meet someone who at first you feel you have nothing at all in common with and are not interested in pursuing a relationship or friendship with and on second thought/look realize that you might have underestimated them and that there is something there to work on and build on. Or they might be so different from you that you feel you have absolutely nothing in common. The truth is you have a lot to teach each other and by not letting them into your life, you will miss out on something that could be a truly amazing experience for both of you. They do say ‘opposites attract’ after all.
Once the Sun joins Mercury in Cancer on the 14th, feelings will run much deeper and it will be a good idea once again to really think before saying anything and running the risk of hurting anybody’s feelings. Cancer is a far more tender sign than most and being the sign of the mother and the nurturer take things much more seriously than a lot of other signs. Once the Sun and Mercury team up in Cancer, you will have to be much more careful about what you say and how you say it. Particularly when dealing with the delicate flower types of the world. And you know exactly who they are!
If you’re single, June is a month that is basically split down the middle. Mercury and the Sun in Gemini along with a New Moon and Mars in Aquarius signify the best time for the air and fire signs to meet someone worth meeting, while the Sun, Mercury and a Full Moon in Capricorn on the 28th looks like being a better time for the earth and water signs. However if something is meant to be it will be and as long as you are flexible and open to new people, June could be a very fulfilling month indeed love and relationship wise.
