This Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is a very intense one with the energy of passion, competition, aggression, and action…..and is considered one of the most important astrological events of the season. It is the second and most potent of three Eclipses. The first one was a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 12th, and the third one is a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11th. We won’t have a similar set of triple eclipses until 2020. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is the longest eclipse of its kind during this century…with a totality lasting one hour, 42 minutes and 47 seconds! Lunar Eclipses are like a Full Moon on steroids. They can bring in many deep changes….in many areas of our lives….from which there is no turning back. This Aquarius Full Moon is also called a Blood Moon because of its red hue. This happens as the sunlight shines through the edges of the Earth’s atmosphere during a total Lunar Eclipse.
This Eclipse is also a very intense one as it happens on the Aquarius (our groups, casual friends, our tribe, community, thinking outside the box) South Node (past life lessons, past life events) and it is sitting with Mars (our warrior energy, passion, action, and can be anger and volatile at times). This can bring about a reevaluation of friendships and groups….communities and humanity as a whole. Mars is the main player in this Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. More on Mars below.
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. Even with several planets retrograde….this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse has the energies flaring. Notice how these energies are playing out in “real life”…our own life…the political “life” and the World “life”.
Eclipses are a powerful pin point of energy that affects your chart (and the Earth/humanity chart) in a certain area. For this Eclipse the area of your chart that will be effected is where 4 degrees Aquarius/Leo falls in your own natal chart. This energy can last 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. 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.
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. This includes the releasing of old ways of interacting within groups of all kinds. With this Full Moon Eclipse happening on the South Node in Aquarius…..releasing old ways of how we have treated our tribes, our communities, our groups of all kinds and humanity on a whole….. is of up most importance. Go deep into yourself, your foundations and old perceptions and observe what is no longer working for you individually and also within your communities. 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 the big heart energy, thinking with our hearts, and sharing our joyful self expression. The majority of Leo’s…love to be on stage and to be noticed…….they love the applause. Some Leo’s would rather be behind the stage where they make the show happen. 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. 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 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)!
During this Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse we have the powerful aspect of Mars sitting with the South Node and the Full Moon. Mars is also retrograde….so taking the energy inward and thinking about things and planning things before you take action is very important. Mars is also “out of bounds” from July 7th to September 27th. One way to look at a planet that is “out of bounds” is that they are less willing to play by anyone’s rules but their own! They can be a little on the wild side! So handling Mars during this Eclipse Full Moon…is going to be a little tricky and remember that the energy of this Eclipse last for a while. So when noticing Mars in this Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse report or if you look up in the sky the night of the Eclipse you will see Mars shinning bright near the Moon, try to feel the energy! Mars is at what we call its perigee point (closes to the Earth) making it easier to see…and notice it’s reddish cast.
Mars is adding the energy of passion, the pioneer, the crusader, taking action, the warrior energy, aggression, anger etc….bringing in needed caution in all these areas. We need to 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 of the anger energy etc. Mars conjunct the Moon (our emotional core, our natural intuition and cellular memory), and the South Node (past life lessons, things unfinished)….bring in a whole different energy. Mars conjunct the Moon is passionate about protection of the family and all those that they love! Mars conjunct this Eclipsed Aquarius Moon is bringing us the Warrior energy… which can actually also give us the courage needed (like a pioneer) to make some major changes around our emotions, our families, our groups of friends…..and help us to move gently away from the feelings that are no longer vibrating where we are now vibrating in our evolution. Again…caution, as we want to move away in a non angry way….gently….you don’t have to burn bridges, but you also don’t have to remain in a relationship (Moon) either with a partner or with a group (Aquarius)…where you are not being treated the way you now need to be treated. Some of these situations may be more current and some may feel like they have come out of left field (Aquarius) and some may feel Karmic, like you have been there before (South Node).
The current North Node (soul’s intent for this time life time as individuals or for the world)……is in Leo. We are supposed to be coming from our Hearts….thinking with our Hearts….expressing Love with lots of Play, fun etc. The Leo Sun is also sitting with the North Node….accenting this message even more!
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.
There could be some drama happening with Mars also opposing the Leo Sun. Stay of drama…both others, and your own. Also watch others driving and your own, watch where you walk etc. as the energies will be very intense and strong and you could become accident prone.
We also have a T-Square (friction and stress) that has formed with Mars/Full Moon/South Node – Sun/North Node/Pallas Athena – and Uranus ! This adds to the highly active energy of this Full Aquarius Moon Eclipse. All T-Squares are intense…but when you look at this one, besides all the information given above about each grouping….we notice that there seems to be a cluster of the feminine with the North Node/ Leo Moon (Love and big heart) and Pallas Athena (female warrior, intelligence, wisdom and strategy)….and the male with Mars the Blood/reddish Moon, and South Node. This seems to be a strong message from the Universe of the balance between the Male and Feminine energies (in all areas) that is part of the shift that started in 2010. Neither is better than the other. There needs to balance in all those areas! The Male more aggressive ways of the past are being shifted into the more feminine loving ways of the future.
Mercury turned retrograde yesterday. So remember it is not a time to panic. 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.
This Full Aquarius Moon Lunar Eclipse is here to help us release what we need to release so we are ready for…..the 3rd New Leo Moon Eclipse on August 11th !
With the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius….there can be changes that are happening all around us….but we can also see the big picture knowing what needs to be changed 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
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 …..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 Full Aquarius Moon Lunar Eclipse’s energy is also about Change and letting go. 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 version of the “New World”.
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 all one! Mediate……and Listen. Manifest and create!
