This Full Moon in Aquarius, opposing Leo, is asking us to balance between our intense individualism and the space where we loose our independence to make a greater contribution through community. Adding in the other planetary alignments, especially Uranus retrograding in Aries, we are undergoing internal alchemy to redefine how we unite to the universal consciousness … as ourselves. This is an uncomfortable integration and in the final degrees of this Aquarius Moon, all of it will peak and likely find resolution in the unexpected.
For you personally, the area of your life where you are redefining your autonomy, in service to others, lives in the house of your natal chart this Aquarius Full Moon falls within. It will also affect you based on where Aquarian energy lives in your birthchart, through planets and aspects … and be the culmination of the intentions you planted with the Lunar New Year on February 8, 2016.
Full moon’s are best known for manifestations and illuminations. And although the moon reaches ‘full’ at 2:26 am Los Angeles, 10:26 am London, and 7:26 pm Sydney on August 18, 2016, the effects of these forces start as the moon enters Aquarius, building up til the peak … and will likely dissipate as the moon enters Pisces 7 hours later.
The window of a full moon (12 hours before and after) is one of the most powerful opportunities to actively release things that are not serving your highest potential along the axis the opposition activates and take actions to align with your intentions. This is a spectrum and with Lunar Intentions, an active creation … only you know what there is to release and what actions to take. Listen to your intuition. This is the perfect time to purge/act … the forces in the cosmos speak to it’s success!
The majority of this lunar cycle’s Perfecting Phase has the moon transiting Pisces and gives us the space to retreat back into our dreamier, romantic side and internalize the gifts of this full moon. More will be shared on that in our next post. (As a side-note – Lunar Intentions has transformed into a conversation by Lunar Transit, verses by Phase, and will be incorporating more of the aspects within the lunar cycle … along with highlighting the interplay between consciousnesses.)
Make no mistake (really it’s not even possible) … this is an active time, a period of active presence, and introspective listening. The key is to remain open to it! To be quick to let what may be, be … and look for the silver lining, even if it isn’t a shining piece in your hand. It is from the space of gratitude we then have the opportunity to perfect. To fine tune. To set down and leave well enough alone. Be with what may be, pick up our bounty … and move forward.
Many blessed wishes to you … may this full moon bring your intentions to life beyond your wildest dreams!
