The Aquarius Full Moon on August 1 is opposed by Venus, the Sun, Uranus, and Jupiter pushing some heavy influence on the war between your heart and your mind. This Full Moon may trigger many changes within romantic connections because of Venus being retrograde and fueled by Jupiter and Uranus as they sit in Venus ruled Taurus. The focus is authenticity and embodying a healthier sense of self-value, you might be analyzing your personal connections in seeing if they are aligned with your personal values.

ARIES SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon in Aquarius illuminates your 11th house where it is home. You may experience a chapter closing or something coming into fruition that involves your social circle and things you have been working towards. There may be things you need to release in your environment in order to move towards the things you want to obtain, such as restrictive connections or even personal limitations that keep you from feeling free to be yourself. The focus is on personal freedom and feeling more authentic amongst your tribe. You may also be inspired to formulate new long-term goals that stem from releasing restrictions and outgrown cycles.
TAURUS SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon reveals to you where you are coming in short with trying to achieve your long-term goals or obtaining a sense of security in your financial situation. It may be something within yourself – perhaps you are sticking to old belief systems about money and how others perceive you, or your public image in general. Sometimes, Taurus, you have to just do the damn thing and not care what others think. Especially if it brings you happiness and speaks to the future you want to create. This could be more of a self-worth issue, in not feeling adequate in moving towards something that you really want. The more you give this perspective power, the more you will feel restricted from the things you want.
GEMINI SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon expands your mindset and has you thinking far into the future, outside the box, and considering insights you might have been opposed to in the past. You might also be considering long-distance travel, going back to school for a subject that’s always interested you, or questioning your religious/spiritual beliefs. This is a time of branching out of old ways of thinking and adopting a new mindset which can expand areas of your life that need the boost. Ask yourself those big questions, Gemini, and watch as you come to find new understandings which can create the shifts you need.
CANCER SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon brings a sort of regeneration into your life within an old connection or something you have shared with someone else, or others. It is retrograde season, and so this could be something you had left behind you and had to heal from, or really make peace with. This reconciliation can be quite positive if you focus on the evolution that has occurred. This may also affect your finances and the value of these connections as the focus is on how you can nurture what is coming back around. This is a time of reinventing the past but giving it more of the unconditional love and understanding that you have come to find within yourself since the separation.
LEO SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon affects your committed partnerships and contracts as it sits in your 7th house. This is some heavy energy that is focused on liberation and moving towards personal freedom. Where you don’t feel free in your relationships will be illuminated under the Full Moon and as a result conversations need to take place or boundaries need to be set. You could be closing out cycles that mirrored a distorted perception you had of your self-worth in the past. You weren't valuing yourself the same way you are now and find any connections that reflect your old self-perception too restrictive and inauthentic.
VIRGO SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon sits right at home within your 6th house of health and daily habits. There may need to be some changes in how you approach your day-to-day as there are certain things you are subconsciously doing which are a result to the health issues (mental, emotional, or physical), and these can be as simple as the way you talk to yourself or ways you hold yourself back from doing things that make you genuinely happy because of not allowing yourself the time or space in your day-to-day life. You may want to look into your diet, exercise routine, and how you tend to your physical health on the daily basis. Releasing bad habits would be beneficial under this Full Moon.
LIBRA SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon shines brightly in your 5th house and reveals all the reasons why you should celebrate yourself. The South Node just moved into your sign, and so with the Full Moon you could most definitely see all the reasons why you should be focused on what you want rather than keeping the peace so to appease others. The 5th house also represents dating, sex, and childhood, and so you could be understanding subconscious patterns in your dating life or romantic connections that stem from childhood and are seeing how you can overcome those cycles by simply choosing yourself.
SCORPIO SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon sits in your 4th house of home, mother-figures, and self-care. With that being said, you might be focused on clearing out stagnant energy from your home by decluttering. By doing so, you are opening space for new opportunities, and also aligning with more clarity. You may also be creating more ways you can better take care of yourself. If your emotions feel a bit scattered, then take a little time to tend to them and re-center. The Full Moon may also trigger an emotional release that is needed, so don’t hold back those tears, and let it all out. Take it easy for the few days leading and after the Full Moon, you are shedding a lot of old narratives that kept you in stagnation.
SAGITTARIUS SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon may bring important communication which could trigger an ending to something that at first you didn’t realize, but as you let it go, was actually holding you back. This could involve your close friends, coworkers, or even ways you communicated within about yourself. Old narratives are being released, and it might not be easy, but is needed in order to move towards more enriching connections or thought patterns that cater to your mental health rather than deteriorate it. Use this Full Moon to break out of a rut by getting out of your hermit mode and spend time with others who bring you up.
CAPRICORN SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon sits in your 2nd house of finances and your value system. The focus is on how you can liberate yourself from something that seems stagnant or doesn’t speak to your sense of purpose. You might be stuck in a dead-end job or perhaps your spending habits need to be looked at and a better budget applied so to not feel like you’re stuck in a scarcity mindset, or not aligned with how you should be valued. Don’t be surprised if you get an old offer for employment or making money that you had missed out in the past, or couldn’t bring to fruition – you could be getting a second chance at something that could be very successful.
AQUARIUS SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon showcases the way you perceive and express yourself. The focus is on liberating yourself from old ways of thinking that have kept you in situations that didn’t speak to your authenticity or identity. You want to feel more aligned within your environment but first you need to get better aligned within yourself. The Full Moon may also bring about the urge to change your appearance in some way – keep in mind that Venus in Rx is NOT a good time to do this, so sit with that for a while because you may change your mind or do something more subtle.
PISCES SUN, MOON, OR RISING
The Full Moon may bring your fears to reality if you put too much focus on them, so be careful! Try your best to think positive – entertain the notion that things could go right rather than speaking fear into your own dreams and goals. The Full Moon is right at home within your 12th house, and so you could be considering your spiritual beliefs or feeling more drawn towards tending to your spiritual or mental health. Your dreams may also be more intense or have significant messages that you should take note of. You could be releasing a lot of fear or doubt about the future, realizing that surrendering to the unknown is more peaceful than trying to control it.
