The Full Moon occurring this morning brings warmth, emotion, and color to your social sector, dear Aries. There can be a sudden discovery, need for your assistance, and recognition of your feelings for someone or for a project. From today and until October 8th, focus will be on harmonizing with a romantic interest, or getting in touch with your creative muse. It may not be until September that you feel that things are truly moving forward, but this is a good time for looking at your creative and romantic life, as well as your hobbies and pleasures, in a different way.
The Full Moon occurring this morning brings light to some personal matters, dear Taurus, which can bring your emotions up to the surface. A home project can reach conclusion or fruition now. A career or reputation matter might be illuminated. Whatever happens today, it can be difficult to contain your emotions. Try to avoid jumping to conclusions. Get more information before making important decisions, but absolutely pay attention to what’s now coming to light. Today and until October 8th, you will be focusing on bringing balance and a sense of peace to your home life and family dynamics. This can have its problems, but you are looking at these things in new ways and can apply your new insight from September in order to come to a real sense of progress. You could also find that old problems resurface in these areas.
The Full Moon occurring early today falls in a sign that’s in harmony with yours, dear Gemini. It is likely to bring illumination, color, emotions, and a sense of either fulfillment or lack to learning matters. A project may reach completion or be shared, an idea or interest you’ve been working on can take flight, or something significant to you can be submitted or published. You might also find powerful inspiration to enjoy and express yourself . Today and until October, you’ll be trying to bring more harmony to your communications, daily life, and friendships. You’ll enjoy making others feel appreciated with your special attention, and you might focus on understanding matters from the past, particularly related to your relationships.
The Full Moon that occurs this morning illuminates matters that have been previously hidden or left unacknowledged, dear Cancer, and for you, this can play out on the level of finances or shared resources. Intimate matters may come to a head as well. Today and for several weeks, you’ll be focusing on balancing your checkbook, beautifying and maintaining your valuables, and tending to matters of personal comfort with retrograde Venus backing up into your sector of worth. While retrograde until September 6th, you’ll be looking at these matters from an all-new perspective, at times critically. Matters of the past call your attention. This can be a good time for finding lost objects or areas of weakness in a budget.
The Full Moon this morning falls in your opposite sign, dear Leo, which can point to relationship issues coming to light, but also to possible exposure of a personal or private matter. This can simply be something that has been brewing inside of you that now reaches a personal epiphany, but sometimes another person becomes aware of something about you that was previously hidden. This energy can be very revealing. If you’ve been focusing too little on your relationships, they can demand your attention now, and a balance is sought. Retrograde Venus backs up into your sign and will continue to transit Leo until October 8th. Until September 6th, Venus remains retrograde, providing you with an opportunity to look at yourself in a different light. There can be quite a bit of preoccupation with your own personal affairs and image. It’s time to review what’s working for you, and what isn’t.
The Full Moon this morning brings light to a spiritual or service-related matter for you, dear Virgo. Emotions can be chaotic on the job or in your daily routine, and you might be seeing the flaws in plans or projects. Deadlines can be pressing now. You might also seek out medical attention for a health problem, or you can be prompted to make a lifestyle change. Venus leaves your sign today, but will return to it on October 8th. From now and until then, your affections might be kept especially private as you sort out what and who you truly want. A focus on the past is likely now. People from your past might re-enter your life, either in the flesh or strongly in your mind. There can be a stronger need or desire to sort things through.
There is a Full Moon this morning, dear Libra, and it’s bringing illumination to your life in the areas of friends, romance, and personal goals. There can be an epiphany now, or final word on a matter. Others may be seeking you out and vying for your attention. Listen attentively to what others are saying, and to what your heart is saying as well, then take your time before jumping to conclusions. Emotions can be a little raw right now. Today and until October 8th, you will be working toward harmony and balance with friends. You may be looking at your connections and friendships from a different angle. There can be renewed attention to past relationships until September 6th. You may be reassessing certain long-term goals.
The Full Moon that occurs this morning can bring buried or unacknowledged feelings to the surface, dear Scorpio, a project to fruition, new insight into your emotions or relationships, and important epiphanies. This Full Moon affects your career and family life, and if there has been imbalance between these, you’re likely to feel it strongly now. There can be heightened emotions surrounding your family or home life. Today and until the first week of October, you’ll be focusing on harmony in your relations with bosses, elders, or authority figures, and considering ways to improve public relations. It’s a good time to see these things from a different angle, but it’s not the best time for gaining support.
The Full Moon early today can pull up emotions that you’ve pushed to the side, dear Sagittarius, or it can bring something previously hidden or simply “in the works” to light. It heightens emotions all around you, and specifically affects your immediate environment and communications. There can be a real flurry of activity, important incoming news, a looming deadline, a sudden need to take a short trip or run an errand, or there can be final word on a matter related to education, learning, or travel. Retrograde Venus moves back into your adventure sector after a brief visit to your career sector. This can point to a review of, or return to, an unfinished matter or previous condition. You may feel a little stuck in the past or in limbo during the retrograde that lasts until September 6th, after which you have a month to resolve matters and take positive action based on your discoveries.
A Full Moon occurs in your finance and values sector this morning, dear Capricorn, bringing a financial or ownership matter to light, or strong emotions about a relationship bubbling up to the surface. While it’s important to listen to what your feelings have to “say”, it’s also helpful to digest new information before taking action. There can be a settlement of money for some of you. A cycle begins today that lasts for several weeks, prompting you to review your finances, as well as the ways in which you are dependent on others. You may be looking at your intimate world or your dependencies from a different angle, and reassessing whether you’re deriving satisfaction from the relationships that are currently in place in your life. This can give you important clues for making changes, ideally in September or October.
A Full Moon occurs in your own sign early today, dear Aquarius, stimulating important epiphanies. If you’ve been focusing so much on your relationships that you’ve been ignoring your own needs, you’ll be feeling the lack now. A relationship matter might come to light, or a personal revelation is possible now. There can be quite a bit of attention coming your way. Emotions that surface now can point you to areas of your life that need more tender loving care. Retrograde Venus moves back into your relationship sector today. There can be a strong focus on whether or not you’re receiving satisfaction from and harmony with a partner or a close relationship. There can be a feeling of emotional distancing or limbo during this “review” until September 6th, after which you’ll begin to put all the pieces together and feel more confident about making changes.
A Full Moon occurs this morning in the sign immediately behind yours, dear Pisces, and this can bring a secret or private matter to light. For some, a work or project can come to completion, or a health matter is inflamed and illuminated. You might experience a sudden and powerful need to rest or take a break if you’ve been focusing too much on your daily routines or work to the detriment of your inner world and need to recoup and strengthen emotionally. Retrograde Venus moves back into your work and health sector today, and for the next several weeks, you may be seeing areas of imbalance or dissatisfaction in your work or daily environment. This review is important and can later lead to important changes.

There can be a lack of desire, interest, or skills regarding practical affairs. We may not be very much in touch with reality. Difficulties concentrating, grounding ourselves.
BALANCE OF MODES
We are thinking about the long view, seeking out security and stability rather than change. We may be committed, focused, resistant to making changes, and stubborn.
We can have a hard time adapting to changes and to others’ agendas.
LUNAR PHASE: FULL MOON
Moon 180 to 135 degrees behind the Sun.
We are concerned mainly with the nature of relationships and are made aware of recent imbalances. Something can come to fruition. Our concern is not limited to personal relationships, but relationships of all kinds. Our cards are on the table.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on July 31st:
Note that when an aspect is applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect involving inner planets has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).

Read Science article on “Blue Moon”: (it is 13th full moon of year). Said that it happens simultaneously (all full moons do; as it is the direct astronomical lineup). Thing is it said the Full is at 6:34 AM. You have 6:42. why the time difference?
I think it was a typo and they meant 6:43 AM. Ephemerides show it as 6:42 AM or rounded up to 6:43 AM.
