We are now fully entering eclipse season, with a lunar eclipse or FULL moon on 7th August in Aquarius. This will be followed by a solar eclipse on the 21st August, which I’ll write more about next time.
Let’s look at this one first. As we all know, full moon energy is always powerful, but eclipses are even more so, as they happen in sets and have longer lasting effects.
This eclipse season relates back to August 1998, so reflect back on what was happening for you then. Chances are, there will be common themes at play!.
The ruler of this eclipse is Uranus, bringer of thunderbolts and lightening, designed to get us to remove our heads from our butts… stop… look around and see the bigger picture.
With Mars right next to the sun, we are provided with some extra vooma, to clean out any cobwebs and boot us out of any comfort zones we may have become ensconced in.
The thing about comfort zones, is that they usually aren’t all that comfortable!! They’re just familiar and tend to keep us exactly where we are, doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results – the definition of insanity, according to Mr Einstein.
SO, If you want something different in your life, what are you prepared to do differently?
This full moon will shine her light on anything in our lives which makes us feel small, constricted or boxed in, bringing the rebel, the revolutionary, the quirky one out of the closet. She will also bring with her, brilliant out-the-box, intuitive ideas, for those of us who take some time to listen. It’s a stimulating moon, encouraging us to look deeper, shining a bright blue laser truth serum into those dark rutty corners and ferreting out all the lies we’ve been telling ourselves, for… oh… so long. Also paraded in the line-up will be the parts of ourselves and areas of our lives where we keep breaking promises to ourselves.
You know… those things that we consistently moan about, tell ourselves we’re going to change…. And then do absolutely nothing about? Well, they are being ousted – exposed in the bare light of this full moon, with nowhere to hide.
And there – right there, just as soon as they are exposed, we need to take ourselves gently by the hand and ask why – why when we know something isn’t good for us, do we do it? Or, when we know something is good for us, why don’t we do it?
Saturn is forming positive flowing aspects to this full moon, helping us to see exactly how we sabotage ourselves and how often we are our own worst enemies.
The truth is, if we really, truly believed we were valuable, wouldn’t we treat ourselves as such?
It all starts there really!
This full moon, ask yourself what ONE THING you can do to bring about change in your life.
On the day of the eclipse, sit quietly and write a list of whatever you really, really, really want to let of for once and for all, the sabotaging patterns you want to send hurtling into the ethers, the habits that no longer serve you. And then put the date on the page and sign it.
Go outside if you can and start to burn the paper. As you do so, make a statement something like this “I release this……. Now”. Once it has turned to ash, blow the ashes away into the light of the moon.
Mercury will be turning retrograde on 13th August, so back all your data, check travel arrangements and contracts before you sign them.
See you in a few weeks for the great big SOLAR ECLIPSE
In life and light
