DON’T: Future Trip

Inducing anxiety about the future is par for the course as the sensitive moon trips out in forward-thinking Aquarius. Keep yourself grounded in the present through breathing exercises, nature meditation, or your preferred way to get grounded.

DON’T: Hold Grudges

The full moon squares off with big-shot Jupiter, straddling our hearts and sense of pride. This can cause stubbornness and resistance to let go. Don't fight it! Follow Aquarius' lead in seeking understanding, especially when burying the hatchet.

DON’T: Forget To Fill Your Cup

Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac — they're water bearers, duh! But it's important to not lose sight of your needs. We are in Leo season, and it's okay to give yourself your flowers, too!
