The Full Moon Eclipse arrives at 25 degrees of Aquarius on Thursday, August 18, at 5:26 AM EDT. Eclipses infuse additional potent emotional matter to the already highly energized full moon.
Eclipses are times of profound and irrevocable change. Lunar eclipses are particularly revelatory as they give us a glimpse into hidden areas of ourselves and others. During such times, we are more attuned to what Carl Jung referred to as: The Shadow Self. Such revelations can be somewhat shocking. These uncomfortable junctures serve as opportunities to embrace our wholeness, offering us magical moments of transformational self-discovery.
Aquarius, The Water Bearer symbolizes the healing waters of life poured forth and upon those beings and situations parched from the harsh adversities of earthly life. No one is immune to or exempt from the realm of human suffering. Aquarius is exquisitely attuned to this collective condition. In response, Aquarius nourishes.
At this time, the Water Bearer is awakening within us a heightened awareness of our authentic selfhood longing to express for the greater good of our shared humanity.
Aquarius is a fixed air sign, ruled by Uranus. While visited upon, themes of change, freedom, genius, authenticity, originality and humanitarianism are playing upon the collective high definition screen.
Wherever Aquarius resides in your natal chart is a distinctive area of life in which you are inspired to break out of the so called norm in order to live that particular realm of life in your own unique, sometimes revolutionary manner. Herein lies your particular brand of genius and attunement to the cosmos.
Over the next three days, here are some important questions for self-inquiry:
Where are you longing to break out of old dysfunctional patterns of thought and behavior? Is there a particular area of your life in which you need to break completely free? How can you best enjoy your particular style of unique genius? How can your authentic gifts serve the greater good? How do you relate to humanity? How do you navigate multi-dimensional reality?
Life, God, The Universe, Higher Power; however we relate to such Divine Intelligence, will present a hands on interactive call for engagement within an arisen circumstance that catapults us into the moment where we show up fully clothed in the archetype that has beckoned to us. This beckoning only serves to remind us what is already inherently present and intact within the kaleidoscope of our psyche, our soul’s patterning. These pinnacle moments offer us an awakening to the thread of humanity that is woven throughout us all in the quilted fabric of life.
Last evening, as I was contemplating this article, the rain poured. It called to mind an image of collective humanity steeped in the challenges of our time, receptive to the waters of healing. As I stood on my front porch seeing a piano student out, I heard a foreign cry. I realized the calls were distressed and rapid. I followed the sounds to a neighbor’s yard where it became clear that some creature was in the trash bin. As I peeked over it’s edge, not knowing who I would find there, two baby raccoons neck high in water looked up at me with desperate eyes, shrieking in terror. They were on the brink of drowning. I gently tipped the bin, allowing the water to pour out. One of the babies scampered out right away, clearly well and intact. The other one, remained in the bin, water logged and in shock. I wondered what to do. Was he breathing? Was he suffering? I decided to let nature take her course. This morning, upon waking, I went to check on the baby to see if he had made it through the night. He was gone! He made it! Oh Rapture!
As synchronicity would have it, this experience exemplified a facet of the Moon in Aquarius. We do what we can do. We are angels unto each other. We awaken to our essential self and lend a hand.
Aquarius Full Moon Blessings Upon You.
