Our second Full Moon (Blue Moon) of the month is in the sign Aquarius at 7 degrees, and crests at 5:44 AM EST (add one hour for DST) on the 31st. Having a Blue Moon in one month is relatively rare and we won’t see another until January 31, 2018, that will be followed by another on March 31, 2018. Since this Full Moon is in the sign Aquarius, we may find some quirky or unexpected happenings that will come out of the “blue”! Ruled by Uranus, Aquarius has that quality of unpredictability and surprise that can pique, fluster, amuse or befuddle us. If you were born near the 7th degree of Aquarius or Leo, you may find this Full Moon a bit more of an issue — and since the aspect builds up many hours before it crests — the night of the 3oth may be more tense than the actual day of the Full Moon.
As with any Full Moon, the caveat is to be aware of your surroundings, avoid anyone who is out-of-control, drive defensively and keep as calm as possible if anything goes awry. The Aquarius/Leo opposition can hold a variety of happenings — ego’s may be bruised, you may find yourself in unusual circumstances, someone may take offense at a comment, plans can get cancelled or forgotten, and there may be controversy over one’s beliefs, politics or principles. Make sure you don’t get caught in a vortex of discord over a minor difference of opinion. Better to walk away from volatile confrontations and take the high road and ignore anyone who seems to be looking for a fight.
We go through at least one Full Moon each month and most of us are unaware of any disturbance, but we all can be prepared for the times when things don’t go as planned. Try to be flexible if any undo circumstances arise — and look for the best solution. Be safe, be wise, look to a tribal elder for the wisdom of the ages. Peace!
