AUGUST 7th 2017 – FULL MOON/LUNAR ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS
AstroEyes Evolutionary Astrology – Cathy Lindsey
This Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse starts the August Eclipse’s for 2017. This Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will help us release what we need to release so we are ready for….. the 2nd Eclipse of August…That will be a very powerful Solar New Moon Eclipse in Leo… on August 21st. This Eclipse is being presented as the Great American Solar Eclipse….. as a good portion of the United States will be able to see at least part of the Solar Eclipse! These Eclipses along with the current energies that have been intensifying over the last several months will activate changes in both ourselves and the collective. These energies feel a little urgent, very intense, and a bit chaotic. During these turbulent times… people are a little on edge, anxieties are flaring, and most of us feel like we are totally exhausted….even when we have had plenty of sleep. Our bodies are trying to incorporate all these unusual and intense energies…..at times bringing in the feeling of being over whelmed. Notice how these energies are playing out in “real life”…our own life…the political “life” and the World “life”. The gift of this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius is that the energy of Aquarius is about our tribe, our community, and all humanity! It is about thinking outside the box and understanding things that others can’t. It is about being able to “see” the big picture and being able to head towards it! With the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius….there can be changes that are happening all around us….but we can see what needs to change and head that direction. We can even manifest that the changes are made with ease and grace! These energies are revolutionary and transformative! We are still in the “Shift”…..in times of great change…and everyone can feel it! These changes and Transformations are helping us and all humanity to evolve. With Aquarius….remember that the main focus is not just on yourself…..but on others…..the Tribe…..the Community…..and Humanity
Eclipses are a powerful pin point of energy that affects your chart (and the Earth/humanity chart) in a certain area (the degrees of the Eclipse – 15 degrees of Aquarius), for up to 6 months and sometimes longer. It creates a “blip/wobble”, or a disruption in time, energy, and the natural flow of light and dark. It also stirs up what is in our subconscious, bringing it into consciousness. An Eclipse opens a portal to the Universe, where a stream of knowledge, new codes and information can be down loaded from the Universe along with Evolutionary instructions … into our consciousness and subconscious. It is like an upgrade. Eclipse’s can also affect the magneto-receptors in our DNA, along with radio waves, X-ray’s, etc., and they also affect our Pineal Gland. They also activate shifts in the electromagnetic fields of the Earth itself and all of its inhabitants. During an Eclipse, a portal to the Universe is opened and information, thoughts, ideas and Evolutionary instructions…. can be downloaded from the Universe at that time. Lunar eclipses are extra-powerful Full Moons…and activate deep emotions in both your personal life, as well as the collective unconscious. Eclipses are accelerated catalysts, and they are either breakdowns and/or breakthrough events. Eclipses are doorways to alternative realities….They are like a Wild Card…you are never sure how it will play out. They also can trigger major events…good and bad….and often times are associated with the deaths of people in the public eye. It is a time to go outside (if you can) look up and connect with the sky.
If you can’t see the Eclipse, it is ok…you will still receive the energies…..just be still and listen. It is a time to open to the universe, with your guidance, and Feel the energy and down loads as the portal is open during this Eclipse. It is a time to be quiet and Listen…..what do you hear? What visions are you receiving? What do you feel? If you are asleep or busy during the Eclipse….know that your Guidance will make sure you receive the down loads and messages that are important for your Soul growth…if you ask them. Then the next day….mediate and ask your guidance to bring to you what down loads and messages you need to know for yourself, and for all humanity, so we can continue to evolve.
Full Moons are a time of releasing. It is a time of releasing the old that is no longer working. Go deep into yourself, your foundations and old perceptions and observe what is no longer working for you. What is no longer vibrating where you are vibrating? It is a time of purging and releasing in all areas of your life.
The Full Moon happens when the Sun and Moon are opposing each other. With this Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse…. We also have a Leo Sun. The goal of an opposition is to bring into balance the 2 sides. In this case….bringing into balance the Aquarian Moon energy with the Leo Sun energy.
Aquarius is about the power of community, humanity and our tribe. Those that vibrate where we are vibrating. It is about thinking outside the box and wrapping our minds around information that some might think is…….way out there. Aquarius is futuristic and the sign of the genius. Aquarius is about freedom and the honoring of that freedom……so we can move into that “big Picture”…… for the good of all humanity. Aquarius loves people of all kinds, and is willing to accept them into their tribes. Aquarians march to their own drummer…..it is as if they spin in their own galaxy.
Leo is ruled by the Sun and the Sun represents our life force. Leo is about our big hearts, thinking with our hearts, and our joyful self expression. Leo’s love to be on stage and to be noticed…….they love the applause. Leo’s love to have fun and are fun to be around. They are also quit creative. They may also be the leader, and are often times represented as the “king.” Leo’s world revolves around them…. If they are in a relationship….the relationship many times….becomes their world.
Leo is the Star and Aquarius is the Crew. This Aquarius Full Moon is asking us to balance the self with humanity/community/tribe. This Aquarius Full Moon is asking us to balance the needs of the collective with our own personnel needs. Your focus needs to be on the big picture…..what your part is in the big picture…..and how it benefits the community and all humanity.
Aquarius is often referred to as the “new” age of enlightenment. Everyone is a star (Leo) in the new world, but humanity is the new Earth (Aquarius). We are all equal…..we are all one!
Aquarian energy embodies the message of “everyone is created equal, regardless if they are pink, blue or polka dotted!” This Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is also about linking up with like minded souls….sharing thoughts, resources, etc. for social change and the good of all humanity (Aquarius). It is also a time to enjoy life….have fun (Leo) and gather with your friends and community (Aquarius) and Play (Leo)!
The current North Node – humanities soul intent for this time period……is in Leo….. We are supposed to be coming from our Hearts….thinking with our Hearts….expressing Love with lots of Play, fun etc.
Kings and Queens (Leo) that have ruled with their Hearts, and made themselves “one with their people” (Aquarius)……have shown us the wisdom of the balance…between Aquarius and Leo. They are the epitome of what our Rulers of the World today…. should be acting like Now!
This Leo time is encouraging us to not only open our hearts, but to also make efforts to Follow our Hearts. Even if you have to take a risk or two. Mars is also conjunct (sitting with) the Leo Sun at this Full Moon Eclipse!
Adding the energy of passion, the pioneer, the crusader, taking action, and the warrior energy. We can take this energy to the high side and take the action needed to start a positive movement with your passion. Of course I do want to warn you about the “warrior energy” which can bring in some anger etc. Mars conjunct the Leo Sun can also bring in some courage….and Mars (on the higher side ) could become the Protector! Now that you are conscience of these energies…..channel the hard to handle ones through exercise etc. That kind of energy will be out there….don’t engage in it. Stay of drama…both others, and your own. Watch others driving and your own, watch where you walk etc. as the energies will be very intense and strong.
Mercury turns retro on Aug 12….5 days after the Lunar Eclipse and will be retro through the Great American Eclipse on Aug 21st. Remember Mercury retro can make communication in all areas a little more challenging at times. Just re-read everything you are going to send out or share with others… a couple times before you send it. Try to avoid contracts during this time….but if you need to sign one etc. Just re-read it several times before signing. Remember we will be having quit intense and powerful energies with the Lunar Eclipse on Aug 21st…..so be particularly careful with all forms of communication for a few days on either side of the Eclipse
We have 6 planets that are retrograde during this Lunar Eclipse! They are Uranus, Eris, Chiron, Neptune, Pluto, Saturn and also the Asteroid Juno! When a planet is retrograde…..we go inward….we go inside and we think about things…mediate on things. We don’t take as much action on things…..we think about things….develop plans. Because of all the retrogrades in August…..people will be internalizing their plans and actions….instead of acting on them at the drop of a hat. This is a little gift from the Universe…..as the energies around this Lunar Eclipse are quit powerful and intense.
This Full Aquarian Moon Lunar Eclipse gives us the ability to make changes, and some of them “outside the box”… with lightening speed! Uranus (which is the constant of Change) rules Aquarius…..and Uranus is also part of the ongoing Cardinal T-square….. bringing changes that come with the images of lightning bolts and earthquakes, along with much transformation. It also emphasizes the responsibility that comes with freedom…. You can change your life with this energy…… if you play your cards right. This Cardinal T-Square energy is also about Change. It is about urgency and transformation! It is about Revolutionary and Evolutionary changes…..
We have been through a lot of downloads and changes over the last several months. We seem, at times, to be surrounded by chaos and situations that are being put right in our faces….right in our faces so we can no longer dodge them…..we have to deal with them. At times it feels like the rug has been pulled out from under our feet. But for many of us…..we can see a little of that big picture and we realize that all the chaos etc. is giving us the opportunity to create our own reality. Out of Chaos comes creativity! We have been down loaded with many “seeds” many “new ideas”. It is time now to start weeding out those seeds that are not healthy for you. Get rid of the seeds that are not growing the way you want them to grow…..or that no longer serve your “new” vision of yourself and your “New World”.
The Universe is speaking very loudly and is getting quit Urgent about the fact that we need to move from the “me” energy (Leo) to the “we” energy (Aquarius). We need to bring the “me” and the “we” into balance! We must be in balance in all areas……. to be able to reach the higher energies of this shift……and move into Oneness!
During this powerful Full Aquarius Moon……Meditate on balancing….come up with some of your own ideas of what needs balanced in certain areas of your life. The universe is speaking loudly! We need to bring ourselves, our relationships, and the world into balance. As we continue to co-create the “new” during this shift……we are continuing towards our own evolution. All of these energies are also very creative (Leo)…..and if we can channel all of the above energies into creating/manifesting our own reality….a balanced and wonderful community/Humanity (Aquarius) can then be a part of our “New World”. By doing this…. we will have used the energies in the highest way.” It is a powerful time to manifest ! Take time to sit in the quiet and dream….manifest….create…..and Listen for guidance.
Mediate on ways to release some of “the aggression”…. and the “I have to have it my way”…. types of energy, along with the “unstableness we feel with change. “ Intensifying desires, determination and social reform are all part of these energies. You may find yourself wanting to be out in the public a little more and, enjoying or participating in community events, with this Aquarius Full Moon….therefore being part of the change, as you start to balance your own needs with the needs of others.
Be willing to accept the changes happening with gratitude…. knowing that you are being given everything you need, to support your Soul Growth. Visualize something new and different, wonderful and magical, for our new world, and the new you. We are still co-creating this “new” world….. We are moving from the “Me” energy to the “We” energy…..We are all one! Mediate……and Listen. Manifest and create!
