On July 23-24, the first full moon of summer is coming to lighten things up! In a rare cosmic encounter, the Full Moon will swing past the planets Jupiter and Saturn in our view of the night sky.

The astrology of July 2021 will help us gently reflect on the first half of the year, but it will also bestow upon us a fresh sense of excitement as we move forward. Just one day after Leo season begins, our emotions will come to a climax under the light of the July 2021 full moon, which peaks on July 23.

While Leo season will have us all-embracing an “all about me” attitude, the full moon opposite Aquarius inspires us to consider the ways that we can show up more for the collective, whether that is within our relationships or the community at large. Use this Lunation as an excuse to show off all the quirky and eccentric qualities that make you stand out in a crowd and let go of any self-conscious traits that keep you from being authentic in your connections with other people.

According to Astrology King,

Full Moon Meaning

Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

Jupiter Saturn Alignment

This month’s Full Moon also comes with added excitement as two popular sky-viewing planets can be seen along its trail.

On the night of the Full Moon, the planets Jupiter and Saturn will appear as if they are following the moon westward across the sky. The Moon crosses the path of all the planets of the Solar System each month, but this month it happens to pass by Jupiter and Saturn while completely illuminated.

In real distance, the Moon does not travel any closer to the two planets, however, it will appear chummy with Jupiter and Saturn from our view from Earth.

While the July Full Moon could stir up the winds of change, as it fades, we will find ourselves feeling lighter and free. We may also feel more guidance and support to lift something that has been weighing heavily upon us.

If you are looking for energy healing of any kind, the Full Moon will also be a huge support. Do something for yourself and make the most of this special moon.
