It is similar to how we do pseudo rate constants. We make one reactant so large that it basically doesn't affect the reaction rate, enabling us to just study the other reactant as if it is the only thing that affects the rate. Same thing with liquids and solids. They are in such high excess that they do not affect the rate, so you look to the other aquesous components because those are the limiting factors that affect equilibrium and rate.
