The Full Moon on 9 July 2017 falls at 17º Capricorn decan 2. The Full Moon July is a black rod of iron in that it plugs right into Mars opposite Pluto. To say this will be intense is an understatement. Amplifier Jupiter heats up this flaming poker aspect from the scales of justice in Libra. So we end up with a very hot cardinal T-square! That’s quite a heatwave and we are in the middle of summer. Phew! It also aligns with major stars in the constellation of the harp. What sorcery will the haunting sound of the lair/lyre play?

We all know the expression to pull on the violin strings, well with Lyra being triggered, any cyber/mind control will be turned up full blast. Watch out for compelling images accompanied by a 120 piece orchestra. However, Jupiter in the T-square might provide an escape from all this Hollywood style lunacy and work as an antidote the Pluto’s schemes. With Moon conjunct Pluto some very Dark Cupid relationships could reeve up, but at least Jupiter can provide some balanced evaluation of the seduction.

Full Moon July ~ Aspects & Star

Full Moon on Sheliak in Lyra “In connection with the Moon…a tendency for occult and mysticism may be given.” The Moon adds more shadow, introspection and intuition to Lyra. The claw stars of the vulture here highlight forgery and faking it, which could bring some unsavory characters out of the woodwork. For your average person however, this imaginative Full Moon will definitely need to purge out its dark side through some art form or vent its spleen playing a musical instrument. The Full Moon might bring some public disgrace to a bully who has had this exposure coming for a long time.




Moon conjunct Pluto is penetrating, provocative and plunges headlong into the dark sea of lunar emotions without fear. This Moon wants nothing less than to start dramatic and intense sexual relationships that profoundly transform their soul. The closer this New Moon brushes with death and trauma, the more alive it feels. At this Full Moon July we may get obsessively involved with a project or person, but then suddenly swoop off alone to process the commotion we have created.

Full Moon JulyMoon opposition Mars creates a dynamo of energy that needs expression in some physical action. If other factors in the native’s chart place restrictions on this aspect, then the frustration can become dangerous to others or become self-destructive. At its worst, the rage with the opposition can turn very bitter and vindictive. Moon opposition Mars is less tempestuous if it is allowed freedom, and it cannot bear to be hemmed in.

Independent thinking and self -sufficiency is their number one priority. On the whole though, Moon/Mars hard aspects are an extremely courageous combination and you would want to have this person fighting on your side. This aspect makes for very honest and direct dealings; their reactions are fast and instinctive. They are also fantastic in an emergency, sensing danger way before anyone else.

Full Moon July 2017 Summary

This is quite a useful Full Moon if you don’t allow yourself to be intimidated by it. The purging aspects are strong which means it will be an excellent Full Moon for detoxification. It will feel a bit like a phoenix out of the flames, especially since there is some bird symbolism involved. Lyra’s is the constellation of the harp but some depictions of this constellation include a vulture which holds the Lyra between its talons. Lyra is artistic but is also quite ruthless. This star particularly resonates with artists agents or managers. Creatives will need to watch they don’t get exploited by their supposed ‘benefactors’. Be wary of those who promise too much, there is no such thing as a free lunch, as the saying goes.
