The free-spirited Full Moon in Aquarius (the Blue Moon, or second Full Moon of July 2015) places us in the middle of a tug-of-war between our hearts and our heads. Every Full Moon is a culmination of a monthly emotional cycle, but the soulful Moon isn’t particularly comfortable expressing herself in brainy Aquarius.
Nevertheless, our feelings must be acknowledged as romantic Venus retrogrades into heart-centered Leo the same day as this Full Moon. Thankfully, an intellectual spin can prevent over-personalizing an intense situation. We may be facing familiar relationship themes, and this Full Moon offers us one more opportunity to learn a lesson about love that we might have previously missed…

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)
You want to shout your opinions from the rooftop as the Aquarius Full Moon lights up your 11th House of Networking. But you’re not too concerned about what anyone else thinks because you’re confident that your perspective is the right one. Although your plan might work out just fine, your words could still sound more aggressive than you intend. Garner support by toning down your message and acknowledging the validity of alternate approaches. Creating an environment where everyone can share in the success is more satisfying in the end.
Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)
The Aquarius Full Moon wires your 10th House of Career, driving you to succeed at any cost. Your unwavering commitment to accomplish your work prompts you to do things your own unique way. Your ambition is admirable, but you can be so resistant to change that your closest friends might wonder why you are sabotaging your own possible success. Unfortunately, your plans may be jeopardized without the cooperation of your wisest allies. Blind optimism could prevent you from seeing things objectively, so keep an open mind to the advice you are offered if you want to reach your goals on time.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)
Your original approach to your job demonstrates your cleverness, but it might also end up making more work. The Aquarius Full Moon emphasizes your 9th House of Big Ideas, inspiring you to dream about all the amazing possibilities ahead, rather than concentrating on the present moment. Thankfully, your goals are attainable if you proceed with caution and stick to the basics. Keep things simple and don’t look back.
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)
The Aquarius Full Moon overwhelms your 8th House of Shared Resources with brilliant ideas, triggering issues around jointly held possessions or investments. Negotiations can be tricky business, especially if you’re worried about getting your fair share of the pie. People may appeal to your egalitarian values, urging you to lessen your demands. But you want to be an equal partner, instead of playing a subservient role. Don’t just say yes to make someone else feel better while your self-esteem suffers unnecessarily. Standing up for your rights earns you the respect you deserve.
Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)
The Aquarius Full Moon illuminates your 7th House of Others, possibly reactivating an unresolved relationship issue. Meanwhile, romantic Venus returns to linger in your sign today, for the next two months, stirring up feelings for an old friend or lover. A powerful opportunity to heal your heart can be a gift from the cosmos if you’re experiencing difficulties in the love department. Fortunately, re-framing a past relationship in a new light alters your perspective and frees you to be more fully alive in every moment.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
The conceptual Aquarius Full Moon falls in your 6th House of Details, encouraging you to lean on your analytical skills to solve a current problem. You may be so preoccupied with your thoughts that you don’t recognize the emotional warmth waiting to embrace you with open arms. Although you might believe you’re listening carefully, you won’t pick up other people’s messages unless they arrive on your exact frequency. Opening your mind to new channels of communication can teach you a very valuable lesson about connecting with your heart.
Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Your creativity shines while the Aquarius Full Moon sparkles in your 5th House of Self-Expression. You could put on a brilliant performance if you don’t try to control every part of the process. A smart strategy is to have a variety of projects to keep you busy while you’re hoping for inspiration to strike. Be ready to ride a creative wave if it comes along, but don’t be disappointed if nothing extraordinary happens. As Tom Petty sings, “The waiting is the hardest part.”
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Something could suddenly snap as the Aquarius Full Moon activates your 4th House of Domestic Conditions while opposing the showy Leo Sun in your 10th House of Public Status. Your resolve to restore balance to your life should alleviate any emotional upset, but downplaying your feelings isn’t the answer. Instead of pitting your personal responsibilities against your professional commitments, find ways to support one with the other. Ultimately, creating stability on the home front gives you a firm foundation on which to build your success.
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
The free-thinking Aquarius Full Moon excites your 3rd House of Distractions, reactivating a familiar theme of intellectual restlessness. You are aware that your wanderlust makes it difficult to follow through on existing commitments these days. Although you might be frustrated by current circumstantial limitations, you can still improve your situation by acknowledging your adventurous desires while simultaneously juggling your copious responsibilities. Managing your time creatively is the key to your success.
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Your financial condition may seem rather unstable while the erratic Aquarius Full Moon stresses your 2nd House of Money. Maybe you discover your cash on hand is less than anticipated or, perhaps, your bills are greater than previously calculated. Either way, don’t avoid a fiscal issue that pops up, because addressing it rationally is much wiser than putting it off — even if you don’t have a complete solution yet. Taking a small step in the right direction may be enough to set you on a path that eventually leads to a final answer.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Sweeping changes are necessary to get your life back on track. However, the Full Moon’s presence in your sign brings unexpected events that require you to adapt to other people’s schedules, anyway. It takes courage to be flexible instead of rigidly sticking to an old agenda that no longer works. Although this might be an exercise in cooperation, don’t lose yourself in the process. It may seem as if others are getting the better end of the deal, but in reality you’re the one who stands to gain the most by opening your heart.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)
You would rather pursue a more meaningful path in life, but dramatic events at work demand an increasing amount of your undivided attention. Your friends and colleagues might not even notice that you’re struggling while the Aquarius Full Moon shines in your 12th House of Invisibility. But there’s no escape from your routine or your responsibilities. The answer is to integrate a more spiritual approach into everything you do.
