Full Moon in Aquarius – August 2012
It is time to dream a new world into being under this full Moon in Aquarius. 2012 is whizzing by and the veil of illusion is lifting. Many of us are realising that things on our Planet need to change in order to keep it healthy for future generations. It is when you decide to change what is happening within yourself that you begin to see change in your external world.
The Aquarius Full Moon tells us:
“Be in tune, inspired and creative during this moon to manifest what you desire. Aquarius is symbolised by the female water-bearing Goddess, who pours life-giving, nourishing water onto the land. This is a metaphor to remind us that whatever energy we are giving out, we are receiving back. Aquarius reminds us that when we realign our personal needs, unique talents and gifts to nourish and serve others, and make this world a better place, we start experiencing a more harmonious and peaceful life.”
The Aquarius moon makes us face our weaknesses. Are we too concerned with ourselves over the needs of others? Are we remaining obedient and silent when we face great injustices? Are we remaining complacent, rather than express our true feelings? Are we living our dreams or are we living the status quo because we are too scared to go outside our comfort zones? Are we in denial over the discrepancy between the stated and the actual intentions of those who are in powerful positions?
Cosmic happenings can occur over this full moon, so open yourself up to the adventure. Aquarius, ruled by Uranus and Saturn, can jolt us out of our apathy and motivate us to be the change by sparking sudden changes and breakthroughs with sometimes revolutionary consequences. Use your heightened intuition to guide you through. This is a good time to surround ourselves with like-minded people so we can inspire each other and pollinate our ideas and projects.
Be receptive to synchronistic connections, mind-blowing meetings that just ‘seem’ to happen effortlessly, as this moon brings people together. Also acknowledge and record your dreams and visions during this period – they can contain hidden messages from the subconscious that our rational minds don’t allow us to hear.
Aquarius can also be a ‘breakthrough’ moon, especially for those who have been treading water over the last few months and have been unsure of the next steps. It can show us a new vision of who we are and what we need to do in the world so make sure you take some time out to hear the messages that this moon brings.
This moon can help balance the struggle between the ego and the heart and can reveal our unique destiny and the part we play in the unfolding of the global story. It enables us to face our personal prejudices and fears and help us actively become part of the solution. We are now in the pivotal year of 2012 and this Aquarius moon is going to accelerate our conscious awareness. The key is to enjoy the journey, whatever is happening to you right now, and see the harmony all around; ‘the blessings in the burdens and the burdens in the blessings’.
We can no longer live in blind faith and accept everything the media tells us. We need to start recognising our truth when it resonates on the deepest level and emulate those that are living by example. Aquarius shows us balance can only be found when we give and share rather than take and hoard. Maintain your inner harmony despite chaos or fear of change. This is an opportunity to deepen your personal connection with Mother Earth by listening, and acting on your intuition. This Leo/Aquarius combination ultimately reminds us to have a warm heart and an open mind.
Reminder: Mercury is still retrograde until 8th August. Mercury is the planet of communication, so when it goes retrograde it can cause chaos with communications. Things can get distorted and what looks good can more often than not, go bad once Mercury goes forward. That’s why it’s better not to sign any contracts, agreements, or make any important decisions. Also avoid buying any electrical items, computer equipment and don’t get too freaked out if travel plans go haywire.
I will end this post with the wise words of an ancient Cree Prophecy:
“Only after the last tree has been cut down, Only after the last river has been poisoned, Only after the last fish has been caught, Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.”
