The full moon is exact on July 23rd at 7:37pm PST at 1 degree of Aquarius.
A full moon is always a time to celebrate the growth you have experienced since the new moon and reflect on your new moon intentions. The full moon is also a good time to set intentions about what you want to let go of, or weed out in your life. This particular full moon may or may not be significant personally, however it is significant on a broader scale.
Two major aspects of this moon will remind us of key points in our recent history. The full moon is situated right between Pluto and Saturn, reminding us of the conjunction of Pluto and Saturn in January 2020, the beginning of the pandemic. The moon is also hovering over the point at which Jupiter and Saturn came together in Aquarius last December (2020) when many astologers believe a new era that is more humanitarian in focus began, "the Age of Aquarius". At the time of this grand conjunction (as the meeting of Jupiter and Saturn is called) the vaccine was released giving hope that we would work together and enjoy each other again. In the US we had also had a confirmation of administration change, which would offer support to scientific (Aquarius) approach to the pandemic. Right now, as many outer planets are in retrograde, we are hearing rumblings of needing to take more time with masks on. The pandemic and its restrictions are not over. The restrictions, though not enjoyable, are intended to support global health. On a personal level, in the US, many are beginning to receive advance child tax credits, evidence of efforts to support the people.
The astrology and the pandemic are asking for global collaboration by government structures and healthcare systems to ensure the wellbeing of all humans. We are being asked to restructure our systems and lives (Saturn in Aquarius) for a more humanitarian and future focused aims. As Jupiter slides out of Pisces and back into Aquarius on the 28th be ready to revisit legal issues that came up during the first five months of 2021. Pluto in Capricorn will continue to reveal unseemly aspects of the government, big business, religions and other top down hierarchies (which are ruled by Capricorn) until the beginning of 2024 when it moves firmly into Aquarius. The outer planets that are in retrograde will start going direct in October. Hopefully this indicates we will be out of the woods with the pandemic before we all return to socializing indoors.

The symbolism of the new era with the grand conjunction in Aquarius reveals a lot. If we can combine humanitarian structures like government and healthcare for the people (Saturn in Aquarius), we can greatly increase our freedoms (Jupiter in Aquarius--Aquarius LOVES freedom). I strongly feel that the more we collaborate for the welfare of all, the sooner we will all be celebrating responsible freedom together. This is not the freedom of millionaires in space, that's Pluto in Capricorn doing it's work, sharing the news publicly. This is the freedom that comes from working together and collective goodwill and a more sustainable economy. Let's us welcome change and move forward together.
