July’s Full Moon: Shifts in Consciousness
This month’s Full Moon is occurring in planetary and service-minded Aquarius. Aquarius is the Water-Bearer who can turn emotions and subtle undercurrents into ‘air,’ or well-developed analysis, intellect, and perception. This sign is ruled by Uranus, the ‘Great Awakener’ planet with key themes of innovation, change, and transformation. Shifts in consciousness occur on and around a Full Moon in Aquarius, on both a personal and planetary level.
Before we continue...
Casting your own magic spells takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended in most cases. I provide these “do it yourself” articles for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult an experienced spell caster such as myself and allow me to do the work for you. This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and I’m also always here to answer questions about your casting and provide follow-up at no additional charge.
As you’ll see, I offer castings for just about any purpose in both white magic and safe black magic options as well as the new moon and full moon enhanced castings. The new and full moon spells are a great way to boost the power of your spell as each moon-enhanced casting uses special items and materials that are known to work very well during these moon phases to strengthen your casting and may even lessen the manifestation time as well!
Moon enhanced castings also are completely separate from your base casting so it’s a second casting that will also boost the original casting, providing even stronger results.

Key themes of This Month's Full Moon
- The ruling planet of the month, Uranus, influences us all at this time. Expect to feel internal shifts that help to reshape and recreate your external world, including physical structure in your life. Themes to watch for or consciously align with include new inventions in technology and science, unexpected surprises, inspiration linked to art, music and spirituality, healing and alternative medicine, awakening, and revolution.
- The Water-Bearer is Aquarius’ glyph, so you will find yourself wanting to transform emotions and feelings into understanding, logical and rational perspectives, and ways to connect with your mind. As an air sign, the focus is on thoughts, beliefs, and higher mental activities and qualities.
- This is the first of a two-month Aquarius Full Moon season- there’s another full moon in Aquarius next month! Stay clued up on methods to incorporate more humanitarian, charity, and selfless service hobbies or actions into your life. If your professional path is already aligned to these values, pour your energy and extra time into your service.
This is a time to seek out conscious connections. Find kindred spirits and people with the same soul mission as you, and then strengthen and grow your bond through shared passions.
Community is the main theme and conscious connections can be the romantic or platonic bonds in your life, or business or family. People who “vibe” with your higher self are the ones to look out for. You should work on your intuition so you can get a clear feel of people. A powerful intuition allows you to know who is on a similar wavelength to you, who you might share a resonance with, and who is someone you might wish to avoid.
Vibes, vibrations, are real- sharpening your intuitive higher mind which is responsible for clear thinking, the ability to perceive subtle energy, and extrasensory senses such as psychic gifts helps you to know who is part of your tribe and who is just a passer-by. This Full Moon asks you to cut the distractions and only focus on relationships that serve your best interests.
Ask yourself the following questions when meeting new people or determining whether you should keep someone in your life:-
- Do I get a positive vibe from this person? Do I feel like they will contribute to my growth, healing, or well-being in some way?
- What do my intuition and higher self say? Are they part of my soul family or a kindred spirit?
- Do they make me feel happy, joyous to be alive, and excited for my future? Or, do they make me feel sad, anxious, depressed, or suppressed?
- If I were to energize this relationship- to really go all in- would we grow together (platonically or otherwise) and contribute to something greater than ourselves?
Service, Altruism and Higher Consciousness
The second main theme which works in complete harmony with conscious connections is the pull we will be having towards service rooted in altruistic or humanitarian themes. This is an excellent time to move forward with any charity goals and projects! You can take things to the next level. Simultaneously, any project or path that involves service to another, or an animal, group, or the planet as a whole, can get a boost from the idealistic and compassionate vibes.
Some people including astrologers don’t associate Aquarius with being deeply compassionate or capable of heart-centered displays of empathy, and this is because they are an air sign known (primarily) for being analytical and emotionally detached. But, Aquarius is symbolic on some levels of emotions- their glyph (astrological symbol) is the Water-Bearer representing the transference of emotions into air, or feelings into intellect and understanding. Aquarius might operate on a mental plane, yet there is still a strong altruistic undercurrent.
Contemplate how you can take your service, business, or charity work to the next level. Meditate, connect to your core and inner soul, where your higher self is linked, and create a plan of action. Make the most of the cerebral energy combined with the desire to do good in the world and create change…. Your gift is the ability to collect water (emotions) and transmute them using the power of air, before finally pouring them back down to the world symbolizing a shift in consciousness.
Healing, Medicine & Spirituality… the Essentials!
And, let’s not forget that Aquarius brings the energy of spiritual self-alignment. Healing, herbal and alternative medicine, holistic health, divination and metaphysical pathways to self-knowledge are all focus areas leading up to, on, and after the Full Moon in Aquarius. Make sure you take care of your health, your emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual health.
A Full Moon in Aquarius allows you to enter into unseen worlds and beyond the veil of illusion. As the sign just before mystic and spiritual Pisces, Aquarius opens a portal to your higher self and ingenious ideas into consciousness. This includes self-realization.
Redefine or get clear on your purpose, however first make sure you’re not currently acting from any distortions or illusions. Health is one of the fastest ways to clear thinking and intuitive sensing. By prioritizing your health with a focus on spirituality and holistic well-being, you will see significant changes. Because Aquarius is ruled by Uranus some of these changes may be rapid! Be fearless and courageous- don’t be scared of transitions. Healing can lead to revelations on your life plan, path or soul mission if you have one; or simply to become more comfortable and confident in your own abilities.
The Healing Arts, subtle energies, metaphysical systems, and sound wave therapy linked to quantum understandings of the self are all perfect roots to navigate. Start to incorporate more crystals and divinatory tools into your daily self-care or health practice. Detach from the physical too. This isn’t suggesting to throw your gym or sports routine out the window, just be aware of the spiritual currents and subtle-energetic life force permeating within and around you.
Embrace your emotions
Finally, a “conscious reminder” would be to remember that Aquarius’ main shadow trait (aka follie) is to disregard their emotions and feelings entirely. They can become so emotionally aloof and detached that they alienate themselves or others, people don’t feel comfortable to open up emotionally or with any depth at all.
As this Full Moon is all about higher consciousness, and how we can alchemize and transmute emotional currents (the water aspect of the water-bearer symbol) into channels for learning, the higher mind, and self-discovery; there is no bypassing the subtle and feeling-based aspect. Get real, be real, and practice authentic relating.
How this Full Moon is affecting you personally:-
Fire signs (Aries, Leo & Sagittarius)
It’s time to get your collective hat on and seek higher learning, connections and professional pathways! This is an amazing time for creative and expansive projects. You’re full of zest and life force, no goal is too much for you… and you are sincere in your intentions to connect to your talents and skills to be of service in some way. Keep your intentions pure and make sure you are acting, speaking, or planning from a genuine space. You can find both great joy and financial windfalls in the areas mentioned.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn)
You will be feeling grounded in your visions and desires for service and helpfulness. Known as some of the most modest, down-to-earth, and genuinely helpful signs of the Zodiac, the Aquarius influence on this Full Moon gives you a touch of practical magic- you’re dreaming the vision into physical reality! Tune into higher mental abilities and gifts, cerebral qualities, and aspects not usually connected to. Seek to alchemize your deep-seated empathy and emotional intelligence into mental avenues for personal growth, co-creation, and manifestation.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra & Aquarius)
This is an excellent portal with many opportunities coming in multiple directions. You’re feeling so on top of the world and in tune with yourself that you really are in a place of limitless potential, at least in your mind… and isn’t this where the magic happens?! Stay cerebrally connected. Push yourself, expand your mental gifts, and broaden your horizons; even if you’re already thriving and shining, take another extra step. This Aquarius full moon is one not to miss.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces)
Your power is amplified this month and next due to the ability you possess of feeling things on an emotional, deep, and intimate level. Take note of the imagery given earlier about the ‘Water-bearer’ symbol and how it relates to reality. You possess so much compassion and caring for the world and others that you may find people essentially crave your services, wisdom or talents! Your finances and capacity for luck and new opportunities will sky-rocket. Be open to receiving and don’t be too modest either. Now is the time to infuse your work or projects with passion and excitement… everyone knows you’re the most humble people of the Zodiac anyway. Be a little bolder and more self-assertive.
