Whilst our Sun still takes to the center stage in Leo alongside Retrograding Mercury, our Lunar Lady now engages in the opposing focus of finding nobility in humanity’s feelings. This month’s peak of her luminous light brings reflection to the sign that loves to improve upon all it can, while Mercury Retrograde continues to request further pondering where the Lion shines in your life as well. This first of 2 Full Moons in one calendar month now encourages upon the inventive and innovative energies within our Aquarius piece of the Zodiac Pie for the next two weeks.
Moon enters Aquarius
5:56am EDT 01 August to 9:58am EDT 03 August
Detached feelings may swirl around in the air, but don’t take too much offense. When progressive forces are around, there logically needs to be some time off from intimacy. The capacity to engage in those ingenious thoughts is high. Instincts are typically quite well-developed under an Aquarian Moon. So if some unconventional and independent personalities display themselves to you over this lunar passage that will ask you for release, you’ll know why. They should, however, be friendly to you!
Full Moon, 01 August 11:27pmEDT, 10 degrees Aquarius
As our Lunar Lady peaks within The Water Bearer, it is the perfect time within our summer’s sizzle to truly take further pause within our vacation modes and think about what is worn out within the ways we bring our originality to the world. When our Full Moon shows itself in the inventive energies of Aquarius -the sign that brings new life to everything- it is a great time to bask in our prophecies. As we revisit ideas we have recently been implementing, we are wise to find the time to sit in stillness so we can then ideally listen to our inner voice, rather than get caught up in the “lunacy” that stereotypes a typical Full Moon.
For the Collective
We have an interesting dynamic of planetary power as we see our Full Moon in Aquarius 2012. Not only is the norm of the Sun in opposition to our Lunar Light show, we find Jupiter makes a wonderful sextile to our Sun and trine to our Moon exactly at 10 degrees Gemini, allowing an ease to come in what feelings will be around to ponder and reflect upon. In as much as a true time of ultimately diving into review is being asked as Mercury Retrogrades through 08 August, as this waning phase begins, there is a pleasant assistance that Jupiter will provide. Old worn-out patterns of emotional beliefs have a complete flow to break away with, which makes this a time when philosophical feelings come into play and will aide in what needs to be let go of.
The 10 degree point of this Full Moon offers us further insight into how the Chaldeans viewed it to be ‘The Wheel of Fortune,’ which denotes cycles concluding to make room for new beginnings. This transformational energy packs a powerful punch: “Every event is self-determined. 10 is the symbol of LOve and LIght, which create all that can be imagined, and also contains the code: Image 10 Ordain. Image it and it shall be. Ordain it and it will materialize. The power for manifesting creative concepts into reality is inherent, but must be used with wisdom, since the power for absolute creation contains the polarity power for absolute destruction. Self-discipline and infinite compassion must accompany the gift of the former to avoid the tragedy of the latter. Discipline must proceed Dominion.”
