We have all gazed up to the night sky and have observed a nice, bright full moon. For the month of July, the moon becomes full Friday night at 10:37 ET. According to the Farmers Almanac, the full moon for the month of July is known as the “Full Buck Moon” because this is the time of year that male deer get their new antlers.
Some other monikers that the July full moon is known by are the full “berry” moon, the full “salmon” moon, the full “Thunder” moon, or the full “halfway summer” moon. Of course, our favorite in the Jet Pinpoint Weather Center is the full Thunder moon.
Accompanying the full moon Friday night will be the planets Saturn and Jupiter, which are two of the bigger planets in the solar system. On Friday night when the moon becomes full, look in the southeastern sky around midnight to observe the moon, Saturn and Jupiter, which will appear to be roughly in line with each other.
We expect the weather cooperate for viewing the moon, Saturn and Jupiter. Right now, the forecast calls for a partly cloudy to mainly clear sky.

You may be willing to share more of yourself than normal with your friends today. Still, keep in mind your motives for opening up. It’s true that telling people about your background can give them a better context for understanding your quirks. However, people could feel resentful if you’re trying to get out of trouble in the present by manipulating them with sad stories from your childhood -- even if they give you what you want in the moment out of guilt. Choose your words wisely.
Communication could be intense at this time, as even routine matters seem to touch on deep philosophical issues. Your strongest energy can be found in your inner life, so don’t be surprised if you wind up showing a more personal side of yourself than usual in public. You might also finally be able to put an emotional component of your opinions into words. While this may not be the only reason you hold those views, it could be a very valuable insight for you.
Today you could find yourself torn between enjoying the people around you in your usual lighthearted way and pursuing things that you personally find intellectually fulfilling. However, trying to do both at the same time might be more possible than you think! You could learn something new about the people you tend to take for granted -- if you take the risk of letting them into your deeper side. While that might make it tempting to blurt out everything you’ve held back, open the door gently.
Speaking up may help defuse a power struggle quietly brewing in one of your close relationships. Part of the problem might be a money issue, but that particular aspect could be closer to a solution than you think if you just talk to the other person. What could require more work is unraveling the atmosphere of secrecy that made it hard to initiate the conversation. Start by seriously asking yourself whether you are always a safe person for others to talk to.
Someone in your life may seem to be overly dependent on you. Surprising circumstances, however, could reveal that the dependency is not as one-sided as it might appear. Your sign is known for its love of attention, and being endlessly needed by someone -- in even an obnoxious or burdensome way -- is still a form of receiving their attention. Even if the other person really is out of line, try to look for the ways in which you may be contributing to the dynamic.
You could feel very emotionally attuned to some of the undercurrents in your peer relationships today. Maybe a social situation you’ve been rationalizing really does hurt your feelings, no matter how much you logically understand the other party’s position. While this realization could hit you so dramatically that you want to do something about it right away, you might need to reflect privately for a while to figure out the next steps that will actually be helpful. Think before you act.
If power dynamics in your career have become overwhelming, you might ask yourself if you’re reacting to something other than ongoing events at your workplace. Someone currently involved in your work who reminds you of challenges in your childhood could be triggering you in ways that are not necessarily their fault. Your friends may be able to give you a helpfully detached perspective on the drama, and just being recognized as an equal peer can help you get back on track.
You may be getting noticed more than usual in your career, but you might not be as happy about it as you would have expected. Early experiences of competing with your siblings or other childhood peers, where any achievement of yours seemed to come at the expense of someone else being vocally upset, could be coming back to haunt you. To fully embrace the opportunities available to you now, you may need to identify what would help you feel safe while being successful.
Being seen as a cosmopolitan adventurer or as a philosopher who ponders deep mysteries could be a reputation you really enjoy having. However, that may also make it harder for you to embrace the part of yourself that actually likes the more routine side of life. Make an adventure of discovering the things in your immediate surroundings that you’ve dismissed as boring. You might learn something about what makes you personally feel secure. That knowledge is important too, whether or not anyone else is impressed.
Communicating in a close relationship could be frustrating for you at the moment. You might feel like you’re seen as the bad guy, while from your perspective, you aren’t given the opportunity to be anything else. If you respond to this pressure by throwing your weight around on a money issue, though, you might just dig yourself in deeper. Instead, try to be as forthright as you can regarding financial matters. Defying your reputation as the problem person could disrupt any unpleasant dynamics.
Picking at someone in your life over petty things may be tempting. The more they try to respond to your complaints and please you, though, the more you might find that they could improve. If what you really need right now is for them to reassure you that they care for you and won’t leave you, just say so. A direct approach is more likely to be successful than manipulation, and it can inspire the other person to be candid with you in return.
Difficult dynamics in a social group could provoke you to question whether your devotion to this group is reciprocated. You may take pride in your ability to serve the needs of the people you care about, but it’s okay if you need to spend some time today reflecting on what you’re giving and what you hope to get out of it. Even if others in your circle could be more appreciative of your efforts, you might have unrealistic expectations of them in return.
