The July 2021 Full Moon Will Affect These Zodiac Signs The Most

Bustle 25 July, 2021 - 03:10pm

During this lunation specifically, the collective can expect an unusual urge to express themselves, but it’ll be an especially trying time for zodiac signs who are apt to tradition or feel hesitant to embrace their inner eccentric spirit. “Aquarius is about radical authenticity,” Cho Hwang, astrologer and creator of The Astro Forecast YouTube channel, tells Bustle. “This lunation will help you understand what you're meant to share with the world. Reinvention and realignment is a big theme with this innovative energy.”

Curious to know if your zodiac sign will be most affected by Aquarius’ radical and innovative energy during the July 2021 full Buck moon? Read on to find out.

Your innate sense of structure and need for organization might be challenged during the full moon, Virgo. The free-spirited influence of Aquarius will challenge your norms and encourage you to break out of conforming to society’s rules. As a mutable sign, you can be super malleable when it comes to outside influences and you tend to play it safe, but the Aquarius full moon is here to help you expand beyond your traditions and personal philosophy. Now’s a good time to reflect on how much (or how little) you relate to society by separating your personal beliefs from those within your crew.

Brace yourself, Scorpio, because you’re in for a huge shift in mindset. As the fixed water sign, you may feel uncomfortable and resistant to the Aquarius full moon’s rebellious energy. But this lunation is encouraging the entire zodiac to take progressive action within their personal and social lives — which involves reevaluating your emotional responses objectively and reflecting on your connection to others in your inner circle. Reflect on whether your current emotional responses are shaping you into someone you’re happy with, or if your social circle is keeping you stagnant.

This full moon in Aquarius will pose a specific set of challenges for you, Pisces. As a natural empath, sometimes it can seem like you’re too connected with others, causing you to be ultra-sensitive to conformity and outside influences. You’re also ruled by the dreamy Neptune, which can be perceived by others as impractical. Under this lunation, you’ll be forced to question dogma as it relates to your personal views of social norms, as well as what is accepted as practical or attainable. It could be a great time to disconnect from social media in order to separate your authentic personal beliefs from any beliefs influenced by your surroundings. Liberate yourself from beliefs that aren’t truly your own.

The July 2021 Full Moon Will Affect These Zodiac Signs The Least

Bustle 25 July, 2021 - 03:10pm

You can take a breather during this lunation.

Lunar phases in astrology influence our emotional responses, security, and intuition. The July 2021 full Buck moon — which coincides with the time of year when male deer grow their antlers, also called bucks — indicates the highest peak of the lunar cycle, magnifying its lustrous gleam about every 29 days. This intense lunation sheds light on things we tend to suppress or avoid in our waking life, giving our deepest needs and personal desires the spotlight. “The Aquarius full moon occurs within a degree of the Great Conjunction in Aquarius,” astrologer David Scoroposki tells Bustle. “With Saturn and Jupiter retrograde, this could signal a reprisal of social unrest and revolution, but it can also reveal important insight and ways to reorientate ourselves socially. For the zodiac signs least affected by July’s full Buck moon, it may be less of an emotional experience.”

The upcoming full Buck moon is all about challenging our current conventions as they relate to personal philosophies and our social cliques. So if you’re one of the few zodiac signs the July 2021 full moon will affect the least, you’ll sail through this lunation effortlessly.

Gemini, rejoice! You’ve been enjoying your journey back into society after a long (and often lonely) separation. Your eagerness to reintegrate back into the world will manifest itself in saying yes to every outing that crosses your path. In addition, Mercury, your ruling planet, will trine Neptune during its retrograde, which can strengthen your communication skills, specifically when it comes to listening to others. However, Aquarius energy is here to remind you of the value of personal freedom and independence, so strike a balance between socializing and independence.

You may find this lunation empowering, Leo, so going through its unconventional motions will feel liberating. We’re kicking off your vivacious season with the full moon moving into your sister sign Aquarius — and this energy is here to uplift you. Take advantage of it by picking up a project you’ve put off or have been eager to see through. You’ll also be inspired to extend your social circle, signaling a sigh of relief after a long time in social deprivation. Don’t limit yourself to friends whose personal beliefs and philosophies are all the same — now’s the time to diversify your inner circle.

The social stars have aligned for you, Libra, and you’ll find this Aquarius full moon to be smooth sailing. You’re a natural social butterfly, but Aquarius energy is more concerned with its connection to society as a whole rather than on an individual basis. That said, you may find yourself assessing your personal philosophies in order to understand how you mesh with your community. This can be fun for you since your well-balanced, urbane nature is respected by those around you. Now’s an ideal time to see through any creative ventures you’ve been meaning to complete, even if they are a little “out there.”

Questioning everything is definitely your vibe, Aquarius, and the full moon moving in your home sign will amplify your curiosity. This can manifest in the way of reaffirming your personal beliefs as they relate to society in general, so you may find this lunation inspiring your thirst for social justice. Now’s a good idea to find a nonprofit organization near you that aligns with your philosophies and make a commitment to volunteer regularly. You may find yourself serendipitously joining a community that not only empowers your belief systems but enriches and expands your philosophy.

Buck moon rising Friday will appear orange due to smoky skies

The Buck Moon will rise in the night sky Friday, July 23, but this year’s full moon may appear orange due to smoky skies across the US from wildfires ranging in the west.

The moon will look full tonight, but reach its peak Friday at 10:37pm ET in the southeast sky and stay visible until the early morning hours of Saturday.

The name, Buck Moon, is in reference to the time of year when antlers of male deer are in full-growth, but this moon has also been called Feather Molting Moon and Salmon Moon – a term indication when fish return to the area for harvesting.

The full moon this year, however, will glow with a tint that is caused by the lingering air pollution from about 120 fires burning on the west coast, including Oregon’s Bootleg Fire that have sent smoke all the way to New York City.

This is the second full moon of the summer and is sometimes called the Thunder Moon because much of North America is set to experience heat lighting due to warmer temperatures.

In Europe, this moon has traditionally been referred to as a 'Hay moon' — in a nod to the haymaking of June and July — and occasionally as a 'Mead' or 'Rose' moon, although such names are also known to be given to the previous full moon as well.

For adherents of Hinduism, it is known as the 'Guru full moon', and coincides with the tradition of Guru Purnima — a time in which one both clears the mind and honors gurus and spiritual masters.

In Theravada Buddhism, the Buck Moon signifies the arrival of 'Dharma Day' — or Asalha Puja — an important festival that celebrates Buddha's first sermon following his enlightenment.

The fires are still raging in California and Oregon, which has sent tons of smoke across the US and as far as New York City

The moon will begin its journey into the sky around 8:30pm ET on Friday and then appear again on Saturday at 9:17pm ET, according to NASA.

The orange color that is set to shine will likely appear the brightest at 9:37pm ET Friday.

The fires are still raging in California and Oregon, which has sent enormous amounts of smoke across the US and as far as New York City.  

The smoke primarily comes from the Bootleg Fire, the largest of more than 80 fires out west that has scorched more than 476 square miles.

On Tuesday morning, air quality alerts were issued for New York City and the National Weather Service urged sensitive groups to remain indoors.

On Wednesday, the air quality index rose to 157, triggering a warning by health officials.

Once the index reaches a threshold of 100, it can cause health problems for people with breathing issues and pregnant women.
