Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius
August 7, 2017
On Monday August 7, 2017, there will be a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Aquarius, 15 degrees, 25 minutes, at 12:10 pm MDT.
Lunar Eclipses are extra powerful Full Moons that signal change. That something within us or in our outer life experience is ready for a leap in consciousness. At times with a powerful eclipse, changes show up that ultimately provide opportunities for us to participate more fully in our personal journey, and our process of soul growth is accelerated in ways we may not have anticipated.
During a Full Moon, the Sun is always opposite the Moon creating an awareness and a tension between the two luminaries and their signs. The Sun is life, our personal vitality and identity. The Moon is our heart and soul; our personal understanding and expression of happiness.
The Sun in Leo is the Sun in its natural sign brightening its light for all to see. Leo is bold, dramatic, self-expressive and fun-loving, and a natural leader. In the end, Leo wants to be acknowledged and appreciated.
The Moon in Aquarius is a feeling nature that pushes the limits of the collective agreement of what is considered the “norm” The Moon in Aquarius has a natural heartfelt orientation to ideas and humanitarian causes that can be quite forward thinking. Aquarius energy reaches beyond what is known, pushing boundaries towards unique and many times new and innovative solutions. In the realm of feelings, Aquarius’s antennae reach towards ideals and connections that some would consider strange or weird, but for Aquarius, those ideals and connections can be the most authentic ones. To stay on track, Aquarius must resist the urge to fall into line with everyone else, especially in the face of disapproval or opposition from others. A deep detachment can result in caving into pressure to conform, or just reacting in a rebellious manner that has no true value. The real deal for Aquarius is about standing and living in actual authenticity. This powerful eclipse will bring these issues to the forefront.
The polarity between Leo and Aquarius shines light on the connection and balance between the identity and expression of self, vs the purpose and cohesiveness of the collective. It is important to understand, cultivate, and live in our personal truthful expression, as well as recognizing the value that results when we participate in the conscious evolution of the greater human family.
The Full Moon represents a culmination, a realization, a sense that something is over, or that the time is ripe to finally move forward, make a change, or take a stand. Adding to this, there is an in intensity with Full Moons and especially a Full Moon Eclipse. Emotions can be dramatic and take over our ability to respond appropriately or thoughtfully. In sharing feelings, making decisions, or just in general moving through the next few days, remain aware of your moods. If things begin to feel out of control, take a step back. Allow yourself some time to center yourself. Think about your desired end result of any given situation.
We are in powerful times of change. And each of us are receiving the message to stand in our personal truth with dignity. To be ourselves, and fully embrace the life we came here to live.
