July 1st 2015 Full Moon in Capricorn
A full moon occurs at 10:20PM ET at 9 degrees 55 minutes of Capricorn. In Capricorn, we keep our feelings to ourselves, a bit distant emotionally, and instead focus on our goals. We can accomplish the goals we set for ourselves, but at what cost? This can be a time of great success, but we’re too concerned with our professional lives and not concerned enough with our personal lives. This full moon is sextile (positive aspect) transit (moving) Neptune in Pisces, and our intuition is strong, acting as our guide, and our dreams are powerful. We use fantasy as an escape, and need to let go of something and move on. If you're a Capricorn Sun, Moon, or Capricorn rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
July 15th 2015 New Moon in Cancer
A new moon occurs at 9:24PM ET at 23 degrees 14 minutes of Cancer. In Cancer, we feel good about our home lives and our families. We want to make our homes nicer places to be, and will start doing work to renovate, remodel, redecorate, or perhaps move. We want to spend more time with our families, feeling a stronger connection with them, and we plan family game night, a family reunion, or a family vacation. We feel more of a connection to those around us and our countries, and we can be more patriotic. Good news can come regarding real estate, and we feel that our home is secure. If you're a Cancer Sun, Moon, or late Cancer rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
July 31st 2015 Full Moon in Aquarius
A full moon occurs at 6:43AM ET at 7 degrees 55 minutes of Aquarius. In Aquarius, we rebel and fight against authority. We don’t want to be told who to be, how to act, what to say. We want to be ourselves, and we’ll do whatever it takes to achieve that. A rebellion could come to an end, or one becomes more intense. We’re concerned about our future, and we worry about what can happen next. We may feel that we have to give up on a dream, or that we’re close to achieving a dream. The humanitarian in each of us demands more time, and we become more involved in causes, or we feel that we have to abandon a cause we used to believe in. If you’re an Aquarius Sun, Moon, or rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
