Hey all you fixed sign people! Yes, I mean you, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio & Aquarius…If your solar energy is anywhere near the 5* mark of any of those signs…( that means that you were born in the early days of that particular solar transit, April 21-29, July 24-31, October 25-31, Jan 21-29 or thereabouts), listen up!
This glorious Full Moon in Aquarius, activating the fixed cross also happens to be a lunar eclipse. And for those of you who were born ion or around the above dates, this is especially significant. Lunar eclipses are release points. Activation of the emotional center of the psyche is highlighted. Let it go, says the song and this means YOU! If you are feeling antsy and restless, in need of a change of pace, sensing that its time to shed that old decaying skin, you are totally in sync with this Full Moon, lunar eclipse energy. This is the birthday that you have been waiting for. Whether you are conscious of it or not, things are bound to change for you. You may suddenly realize that old patterns of behavior are getting you nowhere or that long standing relationship are dragging you down or that the dream you thought you were dreaming is really a nightmare! Even if the seismic waves of this Full Moon only rock your boat a little bit, there will be some motion.
Mars, the planet of motion, is hot on the heels of this full Moon, urging action, assertion and relentless pursuit of whatever it is that you need to alter in your life. In Aquarius, Mars is the PHILOSOPHER KING, rather less frantic than he can be but able to imagine just about anything. Be brutal as you review your emotional baggage and if there is even the slightest sense of ennui on your part as you do so, DUMP IT! No second thoughts, and no regrets after the fact. The wonderful thing about releasing is that it leaves you empty and ready to be newly filled up. That’s the essence of the wheel of life, transition, rebirth and renewal. First comes the purge, then comes the fill-up.
Don’t’ be surprised if you are suddenly surprised. Uranus, newly entered into Taurus, is dynamically aligned to this Full Moon, demanding that you look at things with fresh eyes and consider out of the box solutions to long-standing issues. If you have been trying to work through something for awhile and keep facing blockage, why not try something different in terms of approach? It might not be comfortable or easy but, hey, it just might start the ball rolling. Continuing to implement strategies that have only ever failed is kind of nuts, don’t you think?
Mercury has just stationed RX so this is a time of introspection and meditation. The energy is saying that you should pull out all that old stuff that is gathering dust in the corners of your mind and sort through it with the view that you are simply ready to release anything, absolutely anything that is adding weight to your emotional self. It’s get thin time! So, do a cleanse on every level of your being.
These kinds of celestial events are reminder to us that life is a constant movement of energy and that we are the beneficiaries of that movement. You are only stuck if you choose to be stuck. You are only blocked if you opt to be blocked. If that door looks like it is barred, go find a window and get the #%*# out of there!
The Sabian Symbols for this Full Moon are:
Here we get the sense that we are at the very edge. The EDGE is the best place to be. Life is sharp and exciting when we test ourselves, take those risks and make those leaps. We see all that is behind and all that is possible when we live life in ‘edginess’. As long as we follow the only rule that really matters—THE RULE OF LOVE—and we stay true to the call of the heart, we will find our footing and keep our balance.
Is good to reflect on the fact that we are the result of a long line of others. All that has ever been resides somewhere in the collective and we are a part of that collective so it resides in us. On a much more personal level, we must never forget the wisdom and learning that we have gained. Some of it comes from experience in current life but never diminish your karmic heritage. All that you are is founded on all that has ever been so honour both the shadow and the light. They serve a purpose in the healing of your soul.
Thought for this Full Moon:
I embrace the light filled sky
I am the brilliance
I am the dark
I am the secret song of the lark…
BTW…for those of you who are sky watchers, we, in the western hemisphere, will not see this eclipse—(note the exact time of the full Moon)—but, what we will see in the heavens on the evening of July 27 is a quite small reddish moon with another bright orangish object not too far from it—Mars at its closets point to Earth. As I mentioned previously, this is the astrology of EMOTIONAL ACTION. Don’t just feel, DO IT. But with the proviso that you have THOUGHT about it. If its clear tonight, get out there and regard the celestial panorama and connect to the power of the sky…
