On August 3rd 2020 the Moon, being brightly lit by the Sun brings us to the monthly culminating point.
It is fascinating to me that the crescendo of the Full Moon is always at the beginning of the month. Whereas, the New Moon, which marks the cycle of a new beginning is towards the middle-end of the month. Metaphysically seems to be the never ending rhythmicity of a metaphor played by the infinity of time.
Beginning, ending, beginning, endingand on and onlike that.
In the astrological reckoning of time the Full Moon is the heart of the process. A process begun six months prior on January 24th, when the Sun and Moon were conjunct in Aquarius, enveloped in each other’s shadow.
Reflect on what was going on your life then. Try to get a sense of which wishes, desires and goals have come to fruition. What lessons have you learned as you journeyed through your life within the past six months?
And here we are.
On August 3rd when the Sun and Moon actually face each other, albeit 180 degrees apart, (I must say that I findmyself always staring in awe and wonder at its glowing bright fullness). This Full Moon is a dynamic moment imbued with the charismatic electrified energy of the Fixed Air sign Aquarius. With all of its fondness for fascination.
Innovative, unique, free spirited and individualistic.
Always to serve the greater good.
This Aquarius Full Moon is a time when hope and right action must be implanted into our collective consciousness.
This is a Summer of introspection, challenges and growth as we continue to learn how to mindfully manage the COVID pandemic personally and interpersonally.
This Full Moon in Aquarius energizes the dynamic spark of creative light that serves as a beam emanating from a watchtower as we are awakened and learn how to weather the storm.
The continuation of four outer planets in retrograde motion;
Jupiter Rx 19 degrees Capricorn
Saturn Rx 27 degrees Capricorn
Neptune Rx 20 degrees Pisces
Pluto Rx 23 degrees Capricorn
Eris, the Dwarfed Planet Rx 24 degrees Aries
All this as Mars in Aries, enlivens our instinctual drive to survive and will fearlessly go where Angels fear to tread. Forming a T-square to Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and to Mercury in Cancer.
Social and civic unrest continues to inspire the energy, awareness and activities needed to expose the corrupt and corroded structures that do not serve the greater whole of the people.
This Full Moon in Aquarius imbues us with a healthy sense of skeptical optimism while seriously igniting our perception forward.
We are currently in the “birth canal”of a process that has been ongoing for many years. It’s within the next five months that we shall be laboring the birth of the changes needed and necessary to support the sustainable life we all must have.
Be patient, courageous, brave and persevering through the next five months. Something of value for all must come of it.
How true the reality that indeed we are all interconnected. What happens to one affects another and so on and so forth. The climate crisis is a crystalclear example of that.
Aquarius with its ruler Uranus and co-ruler Saturn breaks down and tears away systems and structures that no longer serve a harmonious purpose.
Albeit, while within the same instant, containing and allowing the innovative, relevant seed of the new to flourish and grow. The intention being that necessary and relevant systems must support a healthy sustained flow of life.
This Full Moon in Aquarius is giving us an opportunity to align ourselves with Aquarian individualistic life affirming values.
Even as we are living in the midst of tension and stress, it’s the Aquarian future oriented vibration that inspires us. And will continue to do so as Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto transit into Aquarius. It’s life affirming influence points us towards a way of thinking and being that supports, honors and guides us towards the value of integrity.
To establish the value of respecting one another no matter what the differences are. Aquarius enthusiastically enjoys learning from those with differences. Not having to agree or even like it, but to acknowledge their presence and their right to exist.
Teaching us to know and to trust that in evidence based reality there is providence for all.
The Aquarian vibration inspires our collective consciousness to honor all of humanity including Mother Earth herself, our main source of sustenance and life. And our fellow creatures who are a necessary and needed part of our own survival as we are of theirs.
Remember that even amidst the clash, clamor and challenges of these times, we are held within the sweet, warmth of the delightful Summertime. Allow yourself to take pleasure in every moment where you may.
This brief moment of Summer where the heart of the Leo Sun illumines the mind of the soulful Aquarian Moon and allows you to be inspired by your own creative call to keep on.
In peace and good health, keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on.
From knowledge and understanding comes the clarity that supports the integration of Self and Soul.
It is with insatiable curiosity that I wonder about so many aspects of being alive and fully present here on planet Earth.
I love studying the phenomena of Volcanoes, Earthquakes, weather patterns, the oceans and the formation of mountains.
All this along with the awareness of Outer Space.
The worlds beyond our Earth. I am in unquenchable awe about our galaxy and the galactic phenomena that surrounds our galaxy.
I mean, how did we get here?!?!
The IS-ness of it all is quite mind-blowing to me.
And then there is Astrology.
Yes, astrology defined, “ is a pseudoscience that claims to divine information about human affairs and terrestrial events by studying the movements and relative positions of celestial objects.”
Astrology nourishes our imagination. It connects us to the creative, non linear side of our brain. Our intuition and heart to our mind.
The awareness that we vibrate through the electromagnetic elements contained in our own bodies along with the electromagnetic elements of the celestial bodies, aka the planets.
It’s with intuitive psychic understanding as well as my studies in psychotherapy and the healing arts that I bring to astrology consultations.
It is my deep desire to serve and help folks realize their full potential through the map of the soul, the astrology chart.
It is from knowledge and understanding comes the clarity that supports the integration of self and soul.
And that is a sexy way of being fully embodied, fulfilled and being alive at this magnificent moment in time.
