Dreamwork and divination are done under the July full moon. This is also an opportunity to work on self-discipline and personal goals, especially those that seem out of reach. Try scrying in a bowl of water or call on Venus to enchant a glass of tap water with loving energy. It is a good time to harvest herbs and walk outside. A ritual bath can be prepared with cleansing sea salt and rose petals.
In case you were wondering, July’s full moon will be in Aquarius. Interestingly, Aquarius, though an air sign, is called the “the water carrier” and is symbolized with watery lines. July is also known as the birth month for the sun sign Cancer, a water sign symbolized by the crab. This is where the connection between July and water comes from. Additionally, water symbolizes divination and dreams, so you can see how everything is connected and the reasons for the above correspondences. This is a good month for all water signs (Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio)
