AQUARIUS FULL MOON

Aquarius is the energy of electrifying revelations and of the collective!
At 26 degrees, with the Sun opposite in Leo.

It is; groups, freedom, causes, friendships, memberships, change, humanitarianism, innovation, and detachment.

An Aquarius Full Moon calls us to connection, spiritual insight, and emotional objectivity.

Opposite the Sun, it's about finding a balance between Me and Us. An alignment between our personal desires and the needs of the group. It's having clarity about which affiliations are serving our true Self, as well as how we can better serve the collective.

In gentle relationship to the Sun, we have Venus and North Node together. Mercury and Jupiter are also together, and Venus and Mercury are linked by a wide conjunction, all in Virgo. And the moon is in partial eclipse!

Philosophical and honest intellect meets karmic harmony.

I believe that most of us are experiencing a big awakening - emotional, psychological, and spiritual. We have had, or will have, flashes of insight where old patterns or situations are seen much clearer. And that clarity gives us the energetic boost to make changes. These changes will be sudden, or at least unexpected, to many around us.

We'll find a new direction of how to interact with the world. We'll have bigger and all-encompassing ideas that will benefit us, and others. There's a wider perspective available. We have something to teach others and learn in return. We'll be speaking our truth. We'll see potentials and directions to reach for, and we'll feel super optimistic about it all!

Jupiter has been travelling through a House in your chart for some time. You've been developing a wider perspective and belief system in a certain area of your life, and now is a special time to communicate from that place of truth and understanding.

Venus is our values, as well as what we value and the pleasure we gain from that. It's; beauty, love, harmonious relating, artistic appreciation, peace, and aesthetic comforts and pleasures.

With the North Node there, we attract others to us by offering what is beautiful within ourselves, and what is authentically linked to our values. We will likely attract those that can help or support us towards our goals. In fact, the more authentic and enthusiastic we are, the more we will attract those that wish to support us.

Virgo energy values discernment. Judging what is worthwhile with clarity. We are separating the wheat from the chaff in our lives. Our big insights and changes include doing away with all that has encumbered us, all that has been weighing us down.

Whatever the crazy changes, we want to work through it all peacefully. We're done fighting.

As always, if we don't instigate the changes, if we are not the driver of our own life, then erratic changes can occur anyway and we can feel shaken up.

The Nodes are karmic-like points, and so whatever the Full Moon highlights for you this month, is a turning point on your journey. As it's a partial eclipse and a soft relationship of all those planets to the Sun, it will be a junction in your life journey. Not yet the ultimate goal you're headed towards, but a significant crossroads and choice of path to get you there.

We are now called to find our tribe, find the group, find the types of people that are our true audience. Virgo energy will see groups and friendships come, and redundant ones go. Find the audience that supports your authentic contribution and values your unique expression.

Seek quality over quantity. 100 enthusiastic and engaged followers is preferable to 1000 superficial ones. A quiet, fledgling group that aligns with your values is preferable to an exciting and high-profile one that does not.

We've been waiting for this junction in our lives. Hopefully you did the work of the last Full Moon - taking up your Self Authority - and the work of the recent seed-planting New Moon - finding your joy and your true self-expression.

Aquarius Full Moon now calls you to lift your intentions, lift your energy body, to a high vibration of truth and connection.

Put simply - shine your gifts unto the world to make a difference to others!

Adaptability - Early August

Did you know that the number one key element to survival is not being the strongest, it's not having a particularly strong survival instinct, nor is it having a plan in place for every possible negative outcome. It's actually, adaptability.

A person's ability to adapt to problems or even crises, whether pragmatic or emotional, is directly connected to that person's overall happiness. A healthy and confident mind can take an unexpected change, accept it, and find a solution or way forward.

In astrology, adaptability is known as mutability. Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) are less stressed by change than Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius). They are not the leaders or instigators, that belongs to the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), but they are ready to deal with problems, are open to possibilities, and flexible with solutions.

Now we're all under some wonderful adaptable energy.

Mercury recently moved into Virgo, and Venus soon followed. Jupiter has been there for a while. Mars has moved into Sagittarius. Saturn who's been in Sagittarius but has also been retrograde, soon turns direct! And we've had Neptune in Pisces for some time.

All this Mutable energy means that we're not necessarily starting anything new, but we are refining what we've begun. Virgo likes to perfect and Sagittarius likes to envision possibilities.

We won't be held back. We're not interested in nay-sayers, in pessimistic talk, in unconstructive criticism. We're trusting the Self Authority we cultivated back at the Capricorn New Moon.

We KNOW who we are. We KNOW what we see and hear. We TRUST our experiences and our choices.

No, we don't have all the answers, but guess what? WE'RE OK WITH THAT.

That's freedom my friends. Freedom from anxiety, freedom from the shackles of negative talk (whether yours or other people's).

Having all the answers seems small-minded to us right now when we can see far into the horizon. We may even be feeling a little reckless!



Of course it's sensible to look before you leap. Of course it's sensible to check the depth of the pool you'll be hurtling into. But at some point, you either let fear take over and you turn back, or you jump and laugh all the way down into the exhilarating waters.

How ALIVE we feel when we take chances, take risks!

Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius are powerful energies - all that fire and action. If we balance it out with a good healthy scoop of Virgo common sense, we have all the makings of a mature adventure.

Healthy risk-taking.
Sensible chances.
Mature adventure.
Common sense possibilities.

We'll feel the biggest Mars kick in the later part of the month, and I'll write more about that soon.

Peace & horizons dear friends,
Autumn
