New perspectives beneath the summer moon…

Firstly, reset your Mind

There’s TWO full moons in this cycle, which means two chances to integrate the oppositional teachings of Leo and Aquarius. July 23-25 and August 20-22.

This timing is about you breaking free from old perspectives. Especially the ones that make you feel crappy. There’s so much pressure to evolve, and so many interpretations of what that actually looks like. If you’re settling for someone else’s version, you’re going to be disappointed …even if you succeed.  These Full moon timings offer a chance to ‘reset’ your mind.

You’ve got to decide to get clarity on what would truly make you feel fulfilled. Here’s a hint; with two full moons in’s probably something weird.. and perfect for you. Are you following a path, belief or opinion that will get you where you want to go? Think it through.

Second, retrain your brain

Next you’ll have to commit. You’ve got to eliminate the other possibilities that aren’t in alignment. I know it’s scary for those of us that like to keep options open…But this whole Leo season makes your leadership qualities come to the forefront, and it’d be silly to let the opportunity for your advancement go by.  

The Aquarius full moon July 23-26 and the second (blue) full moon August 20-23rd are priming you for awarenesses that are for the collective good. Feel that? It’s you, holding yourself to a higher standard. This in itself, is good. Your path may be new, unpaved, untried….and your courageous heart is urging you forward anyway.

Remember, it’s Ok to trust your intuition. Your heart-song that starts singing everytime you think of the thing that lights you up.. The fire of Leo incites your desires and ignites your energy to do something. Finally, you can take action. You’re poised and prepared for quick intuitive flashes even when it seems strange…you can trust yourself and activate the boldness that’s on your side right now and embrace the uncertainty.

“Be bold, be brave enough to be your true self.” – Queen Latifah

Because you can be more broad-minded with your goals (and routines & rituals) now, you’ll be open to the new, possibly unusual, ways to actually make them all work out brilliantly without burnout.  Sounds good, right?

Most importantly, you could….

  • Get visibility and traction on a collaborative project that’s meaningful to you. Because your projects are important. There’s creative expression that needs to come through you, and it’s part of your well-being, and the world needs it.
  • Dare to indulge in some unconventional, rebellious behavior…or just be dramatic to get your point across. This is appropriate during this timing. If you’ve been hesitant, let it loose!
  • Use your big, loving heart and send some loving healing energy to the edges of the universe..or just to your partner. They need it too. Enjoying being in relationship is a key to a drama-free life. + As a result, you’re way more effective when you’re getting the love you want!

Finally, connect to your vision

You’re an infinite being with cosmic perspective.


These two full moons give you access to a bigger personal vision. Because you already know from a powerful higher vantage point, you’ll end up re-discovering we’re all one.  This philosophy adds positive energy to any collaborative effort – and to all you humanitarians acting alone too. Where is Aquarius and Leo in your Natal astrology chartThis may be where you want to make a difference or help out…or where you really need that new perspective.
