Your full-moon affirmation: My creativity is flowing and powerful. I love my individuality and what I have to offer the collective.


It’s time to shake things up and break away from the norm, Taurus. Your career and life path is being activated, and this is prompting you to choose what truly fits you. This can be an entirely new direction, a complete innovation or overhaul, or a current one. The change can be sudden but also much-needed in order for you to truly grow professionally.

You have experienced tremendous growth over the past year with who you are as an individual. It’s only natural now for you to seek situations that cater to who you are now.

Your full-moon affirmation: I love, accept, and integrate who I was and who I am now becoming.


The universe is pushing you to break out of the box. Gemini is a master communicator and this energy is encouraging you to embrace that. This is a time when you are feeling pushed to express your truth and embrace your creative message.

Where have you held yourself back from this or allowed others to dull your sparkle? You do have a lot to offer the collective, and this lunar event is encouraging you to break free of judgment. Only you can hold yourself back.

Your full-moon affirmation: My voice matters. When I speak my truth I reclaim my power.


Money, material gains, and shared resources are a focus for you. If you have been working on a unique business or creative venture, you can now start to experience manifestation. This could be through gaining more clients or receiving sudden support through an outside source.

This shift can also manifest through a life partner. This full buck moon in Aquarius of 2021 is activating change in their revenue stream, which ultimately affects yours, too. In general, the means could be through something innovative, future-oriented, and stable.

Your full-moon affirmation: I am abundant and blessed. For every dollar that flows out, 100 always flows back to me.


Your individuality and how it relates to your relationships is in the energetic spotlight. Your creative truth versus the opinions of others can create internal friction to make a decision more in alignment with you. Sudden career shifts or changes in a work relationship can occur.

Not only could this influence be work-related, but major changes in a love or personal relationship can occur. If you are not receiving what you need or feel a sense of stagnancy, this can feel like a time of positive liberation.

Your full-moon affirmation: I love myself and through this radical self-love, I only magnetize those who match my energy.


Your health and work routine are going through changes. If you have been dealing with challenges or difficulties in this area of life, you can feel pushed to make a change for the better.

This is also a powerful time for creativity. You can also feel the push to launch a new idea to your network or social media. It can feel more in alignment with your true creative self-expression. Use this as a time to free yourself from what has held you back from this authenticity. For some, Libra’s fertility matters can be a focus at this time.

Career and life-path changes are developing, Scorpio. You are stepping out of your comfort zone, and into the spotlight in regards to your work. This could be through a new and innovative opportunity or through a creative project.

Your full-moon affirmation: The world loves what I create. The passion and love I have always comes through in my work.

It’s up to you to give yourself what you are worth first, and the outside reality will conform to this.

Your full-moon affirmation: I am worthy of abundance. My skills and talent always receive the compensation I deserve.


This full moon affects you the most, Aquarius, as it’s occurring in your sign. This is activating the unique individual you naturally are and how this relates to your personal relationships.
