Aquarius Full Moon & Partial Eclipse
August 7, 2017
There has been so much talk about the great American Solar eclipse on August 21 that its partner, the Aquarius lunar eclipse is…..wait for it…being eclipsed. It’s hard being a sibling to a huge rock star.
The truth is the Leo Solar eclipse in two weeks is a bigger deal given it is a total and this is a partial eclipse but like a stone dropped into a pond all eclipses have longer ripples than the plunk of the event.
An Earlier Plunk
On Feb 10th we had a lunar eclipse at 23Leo/Aquarius where we had to go back to our heart.
Is there anything from Feb coming up now for you? How was your self- love back then? And how is it impacting the people you are choosing to give your valuable time to now? Is all still in sync? Or did you have an opportunity back in Feb to build a community but you opted out to do your solo thing? How did that work out for you? Now would be a time to synthesize what motivates your heart AND share it with the right community.
What comes up during this lunar eclipse can speak to the Solar Eclipse on the 21st. Again we will be asked to go our heart on the Leo eclipse (Aug 21) however part of the way we get to our heart will have ties to this eclipse. How does our tribe influence what we do and what we are about? Is it speaking to our heart? Maybe yes, maybe no, or maybe it needs to be improved upon? How does technology & the internet (ruled by Aquarius) impact our heart? Are we close to our cyber friends? Or are we only sharing part of our selves? Are we mean spirited in cyber land by trash talking people in a way we would never do in real life? Or are we mean to people in real life but obsessed with cozy moments with kittens and babies on social media? If there is a disconnection you may want to see if some debris shows up on this lunar eclipse. Perhaps it will inform the Leo solar eclipse in two weeks as well.
Back to the Lunar (partial) Eclipse Full Moon
A couple days ago Jupiter squared Pluto and if some energy came up for you around the 4th see if it continues to be an influence during the full phase. The moon in Aquarius and the Sun in Leo asks us to look at our leaders not just globally but perhaps in our work environment, our charities, our churches, our schools our our media it does not matter where we are we will be aware of leaders. And how is our group responding? Which is more to the point of Aquarius. How are leaders showing leadership but how are they doing it with the group in mind? That is the important question. Mars is close to the Sun and of course opposing the Moon and Saturn and Jupiter are in various configurations with Sun & Moon in the full moon chart. It will be nearly impossible to sit still for the next three days. Just a reminder, the Full Moon phase lasts until August 11, 8:38am EDT
Actions (Mars) that are smart and perhaps bold (Leo) along with beliefs (Jupiter) that speak to fairness (Libra) while connecting to the bigger group through technology or like minded individuals (Aquarius) which create results (Saturn) that are judged worthy (Sagittarius). Not asking much, right? Avoid ego trip ups. And avoid people with big egos. Do you know the difference between high ego versus high self esteem. Hint---go for self- esteem.
Be light on our feet and make sure we are not following just anyone. Listen for the ring of a real nickel. Or cut to the chase: listen to the heart it rarely takes us down a wrong path.
