Aquarius Full Moon - August 7th 2017 ✨🌕🦋♒️
Opening your heart to new beginnings *******************************
This Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius during Leo season is calling us and reminding us to transcend the mind and ego, to seek new perspectives and change, to awaken the light in our souls, and most importantly, it is calling us to open our heart and to set ourselves free.
Not only is tonight’s moon a Full Moon, but it is also a Lunar Eclipse. A Lunar Eclipse is when the moon appears darkened as it passes into the Earth’s shadow. Eclipses are very powerful for times of new beginnings and endings,and for birthing new life. Eclipses are known for bringing great changes to our lives, as it ultimately shifts the Earths energies moving forward for months ahead.
The sun, set in 15 degrees Leo, is opposing the Moon, set in 15 degrees Aquarius, while both happen to be set in the degree of 15, which is also something to look at and consider. Number 15 is a blend of the vibrations of the number 1 and number 5. Number 1 correlates to new beginnings, assertiveness, activity and achievement. Number 5 resonates more or so with making important decisions/changes, motivation, idealism and doing things your way. Combing the two numbers into 15 makes this a number of independence, creativity, originality as it breathes the energy of love. Seeing the number 15 is a message from the Divine, calling us to make some much needed change in our lives.The Number 15 is also a message to keep your thoughts and actions focused on your goals and aspirations in order to manifest them into your life.
Is there something that is holding you back? Something that is keeping you unhappy? This Full Moon is the perfect time to break free from those chains of restraint in order to change your life for the better, to turn it around and create a new path for yourself. Have no fear about making these major changes, as in the long-run they will prove to be of great benefit to you, to others, and to your life. With the Sun in warm and positive Leo, the sign of the heart itself, make sure you are using positive affirmations and outlooks in order to keep your outlook on these dreams bright and receptive. With the Full Moon in Aquarius, the sign of the higher mind and future, you will have the ability to find the inner wisdom to set your heart on the right path and to achieve all that you strive for.The time has come to end old patterns that we repeat that do not serve us any growth in life. These can be any kinds of restraints that are holding you back, whether it be of thought, speech and/or action, these things are ultimately holding you back and not allowing you to move forward with Aquarius, the sign of the future and new beginnings. Once we let go of these patterns and old ways of doing, we are opening our souls to a myriad of paths that waiting to be walked down.
With the Sun in Leo accompanying and being conjunct with Mars throughout the month of August, also being opposed to the Moon, comes extra intensity to not only the energies in the sky, but to our hearts feelings, as well. With Mars, the celestial body of anger and aggression, opposing the Moon, the celestial body of our souls and emotions, comes surges of all kinds of emotion rising to the surface, which is more than important during an Aquarius Full Moon, often a sign known for closing off emotions. Because of these emotions arising so intensely, this is the Full Moon telling us that we need to end the inner battles we have with ourselves, especially when it comes to being vulnerable. The time has come to honor and embrace our emotions and to let our guard down, especially in the area of life/house this Full Moon Eclipse is happening in your Natal Chart transits. With the Sun in Leo, the sign of the heart, it will accompany and help the Moon in Aquarius, working together to open your heart to the world around you ―after all, the sign of Aquarius represents universal love, while lovely Leo represents self love. The two will work together in opening your heart to the beauty of love itself.
With Mars accompanying the Sun, this is also a sign to put your more aggressive and angry emotions into positive, creative outlets. Showing your anger and emotion is an important part of life, as long as we’re putting those energies into non aggressive means, which is something we often forget to do. But with the help of this Full Moon Eclipse in Aquarius, and the beautiful Sun in Leo, we can expect inner callings to direct those feelings into positive outlets. We as humans are Divine Creators and using those emotions as our drives is more important than we know.
No matter what area you are working on in life, or where you find yourself during this Full Moon, the main calling of this Full Moon is to follow your hearts desire and to make sure you’re taking time to make the decisions necessary to change your life for the better. Stay focused on your goals and aspirations in life and set them in motion instead of restraining yourself in fear. Aquarius is the sign of new ideas and innovations, and with the passionate and confident energies of Leo accompanying you this month, with the intuitive callings of the divine, everything will be set into motion, as long you are helping yourself and making those changes for the better. Set yourself on the path that your soul is being called to and follow your heart because nobody is going to do so for you. With the help from the divine Mother Moon, the Wise Water Bearer, the Golden Rays of the sun, the Lovely Lion and Mighty Mars himself, and most importantly, help from your decisions, you’re on the path of opening your heart to new beginnings and setting your soul absolutely free.
