Full Moon Astrology Forecast July 23 + Guru Purnima

Happy Guru Purnima!

Regardless of your spiritual or religious beliefs, this is a very important full Moon to honor your teachers and the teacher within you! I am so grateful to my many teachers for illuminating my path while learning Jyotish and the sacred art of Yantra!

As you walk with the guru (within), you walk in the light of existence, away from the darkness of ignorance. Leaving behind the problems of life and moving toward peak experiences. - Unknown

Happy Guru Purnima and the Full Moon of July! Pamela You can chant this mantra on the full Moon Day to honor your teachers and the light of the Guru within:

Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu, Guru Devoh Maheswaraha Guru Saakshaat Para Brahma, Tasmai Shri Gurave Namaha

Guru is Brahma, Guru is Vishnu, Guru is Shiva Guru is the Absolute Brahman incarnate, Obeisance to the Guru

Guru = Dispeller of Darkness; Gu=Darkness, Ru=Remover

Everything You Need to Know: July 23 Full Moon Forecast

July's full Moon will be below the horizon at the peak of its full phase around 7:35 pm PT since Moon rise is 9:23pm PT on this day.

If you want to witness the Moon at its brightest you might want to catch it before it sets in the NW at 4:36am PT. If you have clear skies and are an early riser, take in the luminous and flowing beauty of this full Moon energy!

This full Moon is supportive for endings as well as beginnings since it is in the lunar mansion of Purva Ashadha. Refer to the best times for endings and beginning new projects below.

The full Moon approaches Saturn during and after it begins to wane, until the following day around 11:25 am when these two planets are conjoined in sidereal Aquarius. This influence from Saturn with the full Moon energy will require that whatever we choose to do - begin or end something, that we do it with discipline and organization. And that we do no overreach or over commit with either endings or beginnings.

For all other rising signs, the house that Capricorn represents in your birth chart does connect to a very specific area of your life and you can merge the house meaning with the key indications of Sagittarius to get the full picture.
