The full buck moon in Aquarius of 2021 occurs on July 23rd at 10:36 p.m., ET. In astrology, Aquarius is a fixed air sign representing innovation, change, future vision, the collective, and humanitarian efforts. Full moons manifest important revelations, and for many, they can feel like a culmination of events sparked this time last year. This particular full buck moon in Aquarius—which forms an opposition to a Leo sun—is pushing us to break away from what feels oppressive or stagnant in our own individual lives. On a societal level, it's also revealing and exacerbating where the systems are falling short in serving and helping people. This includes international environmental, societal, and structural themes.
