Full Moon: 7.23.21

By Amber R. Balk, Ph.D.

Leo Sun opposes Aquarius Moon at 7:37 PM Pacific.

This polarity point highlights the tension between

“I AM” (Leo the roaring lion)


“We Should” (futuristic, collective-minded Aquarius).

It is an especially powerful time to harness individual creative power for collective aims.

Themes of intersecting individual goals & efforts with group endeavors & dreams are likely to dominate the scene in one way or another.

Where is your place within the hive?

What role do you play?

What groups do you identify with, and how do your actions further their ideals?

Leo energy can be big and flashy. It wants to be seen, and it wants to feel special.

Can you act your part in a fun & playful way?

Aquarius energy can be detached, aloof, and focused on scientific innovation that serves the collective rather than the small egoic self. It doesn’t mind disappearing in the crowd, but it definitely likes its freedom!

Leo can be warm, generous, flamboyant, and affectionate.

Aquarius can keep to itself and be hard to catch.

Can you tune into these energies and see them in the world around you?

Additionally, Venus and Mars are still within orb of their recent conjunction– if you happened to see them in the sky, it was quite a magnificent show on the western evening horizon!

Amplifying and boosting their magnificent dance is Jupiter in opposition.

This is a great time to celebrate.

Radiate your true essence while connecting with others.

The vibe is big-hearted and warm.

Eat, drink, and be merry!

Perhaps even allow yourself to be extravagant and hedonistic.

Of course, all that glitters isn’t gold.

Remember that this Moon is sandwiched between Pluto & Saturn.

This means there may have been some dark and stormy emotions recently stirred.

As the Moon continues along her journey, these stirrings could form into practical changes and revisions.

Trust that shadows revealed are serving a higher purpose than simply gettin’ your goat!

One last thing about this particular pinnacle of lunar energy–

I noticed a grand air trine connecting the moon with Vesta and Black Moon Lilith.

This leads me to think that this particular full moon carries the force of the divine feminine in a particularly re-igniting and empowering way.

May feminine fires burst forth, imbuing encounters with deep compassion, fertile potential, sparkly inspiration, and fearlessness in the face of all forms of oppression!

Beauty, Justice, and Innovation are in the air!

Amber R. Balk, Ph.D.

I am an independent scholar and transpersonal consultant, specializing in embodying and implementing transpersonal and feminist values in real-world, practical situations. I believe academic pursuits are best if made widely accessible and when applied in ways which promote sustainability, contribute to increased awareness, and engender holistic sensitivity to both the outer environment and one's inner workings. I work with INDIVIDUALS in one-on-one sessions so they may empower themselves through deepening spiritual practice, accessing creativity, and attuning to self-understanding. Additionally, I work within GROUP contexts with people who endeavor to co-create social change through community action projects that honor the depth of subjective individuality while anchoring action within a more transpersonal, environmentally-minded context. I enjoy being a Hermit when I can and becoming more deeply familiar with this place we call home, beautiful Mother Earth.

This blog is a place to cover topics such as consciousness, spirituality, psychospiritual process, creativity, Grofian theory, Jungian thought, expanded states of consciousness, holistic health, dreamwork, symbolism, archetypes, synchronicity, and much more. I believe (and have experienced) that the microcosm reflects the macrocosm; as above, so below; as within, so without.
