I usually try to put a positive spin on things. Share ways to navigate the energy that we encounter so that we can come out on top. But it’s time to be real and face what is so that we can consciously shape what is to come.
This total lunar eclipse full moon in Aquarius is going to be a difficult one. We have already been feeling the effects of this energy combined with that of the retrogrades. Aquarius full moon energy is unpredictable in that it holds access to infinite possibilities and options. We can be anything. We can do anything. Yet, this energy is confined within th universal laws. Even as we evolve and grow spiritually, the energy of the surrounding planets express their influence on our expansive being. Aquarius wants to explore these possibilities. It feels the walls of the surrounding planets in Earth signs with Uranus in Taurus, Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn, and Venus in Virgo. Yet, the water flows freely as the fire of the sun in Leo ignites the ability for summer energy to transform from solid/liquid to vapor and escape the confines of who we thought we should be. Of who others say we should be. Of who we think we are. It is free. Aquarius wants us to be free, even if that takes tearing everything apart in the process.
From what was comes the energy of what can be. Infinite possibilities. That is the realm of the full moon in Aquarius. Combine that with an eclipse and you have the opportunity for large scale humanitarian efforts. The solutions to issues that have existed for centuries will not be solved in a day, month, or even years. They require consistent changes that become habits then social norms. That is why living your truth is so important. Each time someone attempts to police your clothing, language, way of life and you conform you lose a little bit of who you are. So, stand strong and follow the path of love.
Love suggests that we kind to all living things (seen and unseen) with firm boundaries built on self-love. Come back to this truth over and over during the next moon cycle because life is going to test you. It is going to play you. So be ready. This month, we walk the walk and talk the talk. We love ourselves so set boundaries and practice self-care. We love each other which means holding people accountable. We love all living creatures (pets, wild life, insects-everything!). We love the earth and all it’s elements. We take care of the earth recycling, being mindful of our consumption habits and what we produce. It’s our responsibility to care for this planet and we will take this seriously.
Happy Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse! Check in Wednesday for the Full Moon Elixir and ritual.
