Your Body Is Taking You Along For the Ride: Astrology Forecast July 31st – August 6th

July 31st, 2023

By Lorna Bevan

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Right through August, expect increasingly high frequencies and strong plasma solar light.

In rare cosmic intensity, the month is bracketed by 2(!) Super Full Moons when Earth, Moon and Sun are all in a line and the Moon in its nearest approach to Earth. Make a note of the volatile geo-cosmic shock window between July 29 – August 4 surrounding the Aquarius Super Moon on August 1st.

This extreme lunar alignment creates especially powerful tides in the atmosphere, seas and crust of spaceship Earth. Anticipate increases in unusual weather patterns, extreme tidal surges, strong storms, high winds and heavy rainfall along with earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

On a personal level, Super Moons affect your nervous system creating that fritzed, fried, tired and wired syndrome.

The Super Moon on August 1 at 9° Aquarius is in a T square with Jupiter in Taurus and a quincunx to Mars in Gemini. This is intense Fixed energy that could cause stress unless you ground yourself:

  • shift your daily rhythms to spend more time in the rest state free of toxins to clear, rejuvenate, reboot, activate and anchor the new photonic light via the pineal gland.
  • make deep restorative sleep an absolute priority- these new levels of DNA activations will not be integrated without rest to allow the body to re-create itself
  • don’t take it personally-release any resistance to physical fluctuations from centredness to flat out exhaustion
  • acclimatise to your new energy flow by attuning to whatever your body needs – perhaps a few knock-out days followed by very physically active ones.
  • drink lots of water
  • appreciate your body as a radar system that gives you clues about the energies around you

Rather than your body being collateral damage in this process of awakening, it is instrumental. Far from being an inconvenience, the body is the vector for enlightenment.

Chandra Symbol Super Moon AQUARIUS 9:

Violets blooming by the barred windows of a dungeon.

“The old past-centred facets of life are predominant in this world. Those who take on the thought patterns of this old earth find themselves trapped in time and space in physical form. Yet in the very midst of thinking and operating in this rational way, you come to that edge where the way to liberation becomes so sharp that the deeper seeing comes up to give you space and breath. It is quite a process to live between cycles, bridge divergent worlds, and feel the necessity of keeping it all going. But truly the soul is witnessing each dangling moment and preparing to go free when the season is right and the prison doors open of themselves, as the karma is completed and the unknown calls you onward.”

Aries Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

This is set to be an intense week, so keep a cool head. The Full Moon on August 1st in Aquarius is a Super Moon, so expect drama and soap operas to play out around you. It shines a spotlight on your 11thHouse of goals and your 5th House of self-expression, where Venus has just turned backwards. Take some quiet time to re-evaluate where, how and why you are investing your time, effort and money. Are you on the right track?

Rein in your spending – you can’t solve a problem by throwing money at it.

Taurus Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

Tuesday’s Super Moon activates three key angles of your chart–your career, your home and your self-identity. With your personal planet Venus now retrograde also at the base of your chart, you’ll feel a strong desire to turn where you live into a beautiful sanctuary or nest-somewhere that reflects your taste and need for comfort. As you create, this evokes an even bigger vision of how to bring a new purpose into reality.

Take your time and allow your dreams to seed and incubate.

Gemini Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

The days surrounding Tuesday’s Super Full Moon in fellow Air sign Aquarius are going to feel intense. Knowing this in advance, plan extra rest and downtime to avoid mental and emotional stress. The Moon is activating your 9th House of wisdom teachings, travel and broadening your horizons along with your 3rd House of communication and connection where Venus has just turned retrograde. If you are patient, paying attention to that quiet insistent voice within, this is the start of your own:” Course in Miracles”.

What is calling you?

Cancer Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

As a sensitive Water sign, Tuesday’s Super Full Moon across Aquarius and Leo could jar your energy field more than most. Make sure you build as much rest and space to be undisturbed as possible. With Venus retrograding in your 2nd House, turn your attention to safeguarding your many resources. Take stock of your finances, your income, your skills and your possessions and those people who love and support you. Give yourself plenty of time to re-evaluate who and what really matters most.

It’s all about love and trust.

Leo Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

With the Sun pouring intense solar light into your own sign plus a Super Moon in your opposite sign of Aquarius on August 1st, the heat is on -literally and metaphorically. Rather than keeping on keeping on, take some quiet time and private space to allow your body, mind and spirit time to absorb this intense energy. Venus retrograding back through Leo is asking you to re-evaluate what gives you meaning, purpose and love. Enjoy more of what makes you fulfilled and happy and drop anything or anyone who drains you.

Prioritise your physical wellbeing to avoid burnout or stress.

Virgo Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

No matter how much there is to do, how many responsibilities you have or how goal oriented you are, now is not the time to keep on keeping on. Cut yourself some well- deserved slack and make your wellbeing your most important priority. The amped up intensity of Tuesday’s Super Moon across your angle of health plus Venus retrograde in your 12th House is an unambiguous message to stop being a human doing and ask yourself what’s the worst that could happen if you stopped trying to micro-manage everything.

Wind down and de-stress.

Libra Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

As a sign attuned from birth to Venus, you’re probably already noticing the effects of her retrograde through Leo which began last week. As the Goddess slows down, do the same, then reflect on what brings you joy, comfort and ease. At Tuesday’s Super Moon in Aquarius, come up with some creative ways to bring more of those feelings into your everyday life. As you do, you’ll want to share it with those closest and, in doing that, double your pleasure and strengthen the ties that bind.

Pay it forward.

Scorpio Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

Knowing that it’s likely to be an emotionally intense week, make sure to retreat a little to keep your distance from other people’s dramas and soap operas. The Super Moon on August 1st is in Aquarius, highlighting issues connected with your home, family, tribe or roots. With Venus in Leo at the pinnacle of your chart now travelling slowly backwards, perhaps a re-balancing of your current home/career dynamic is needed.

Take as long as you need to allow creative solutions to arrive in their own time.

Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

Tuesday’s Super Moon in your 3rd House is likely to affect your communications and connections. Make sure you avoid gossip or other people’s personal dramas and focus on what’s important. Venus retrograde in Leo is re-orienting you towards exploring some of those big travel and study plans that have been left by the wayside. Although it’s not a good idea to launch them before early September, you can always create a vision board, mind map and enjoy the process of broadening your horizons and sowing the seeds of a more interesting future.

The magic lies outside your comfort zone.

Capricorn Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

This is a week when issues arise around your finances and resources, thanks to the Super Moon on August 1st.It may be that one important source of income comes to an end or a divorce or legal problem nudges you to look much more closely at what’s yours and what’s not. With Venus going slowly back through your 8th House of inheritance, debts and taxes, make sure that you read the small print, know the bottom line and don’t allow minor problems to escalate.

Doing due diligence.

Aquarius Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

Tuesday’s Super Full Moon in your sign at odds with dramatic Jupiter and Venus retrograde signals that relationships of all kinds need more attention. Step away from emotional dramas and take some quiet time to think about the dynamics of one close partnership. Are you overly independent,  in retreat from intimacy or overly co-dependent, needy and demanding? Don’t treat it as a mental puzzle that needs solving but ask how your partner feels and listen carefully.

 Reaching out.

Pisces Weekly Forecast: July 30-August 6, 2023

Tuesday’s intense Super Moon will fritz and fry your energy field and nervous system unless you find practical ways to ground yourself. Stay right away from crowds, get out into nature, swim in moving water and let the stress melt away. Just because others are running round like headless chickens, doesn’t mean you have to join them. Make your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing your top priority this week-the world can wait. After all, now that Venus is retrograde in Leo in your angle of work and responsibility, everything is up for re-evaluation until early September.

Insights will arrive when you’re most relaxed.
