Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius: Open Your Heart, Rebel. It Is Time to Embrace Freedom & Rebirth.
The Full Moon is occurring on August 7 at 2:10 pm Eastern Time in the sign of Aquarius at 15 degrees, which is also a partial lunar eclipse.
This is an extremely powerful Eclipse cycle that we are experiencing this Summer. Eclipses always bring great change to our world, and can shift the energy moving forward for months to come. Eclipses are powerful times for beginnings and endings, whether we can see the eclipses or not.
The Aquarius Full Moon is reminding us to set our focus on our dreams even amidst the issues that rise. This is one of those tests we find so often in life where we need to stay steady even though the world surrounding us is in chaos.
We have been juggling and blending the new and old life threads that overlap as we expand forward. This is a place of putting our attention on the new that we are creating while closing up the doors of the past. This is a call to look at seeing the bigger picture instead of stressing about the details. We need to have faith. Where we put our focus, we see growth and manifestation.
Rebellious Aquarius can help us in areas where we feel trapped, and can aid us in becoming unstuck and moving forward in big ways. This can lead us to face where we are struggling with freedom in our lives, which is being awakened in a big way. We are seeing with fresh eyes where we have been too long tied to old situations, to old ways of thinking, feeling and living.
The time has come to end the patterns that we repeat that don’t serve our growth forward. Let go of patterns of thought, speech and action that are being endlessly repeated and not getting you anywhere. Once we let go of the patterns, there are a myriad paths that are waiting to open. Release what exists in stress, you don’t need it where you are going.
The time has come to drop what sucks the life from your veins.
Despite feeling like some of these things have been in a holding pattern forever, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. There are changes occurring, even if it seems to be taking a long time. Everything flowing in and around you whispers of the changes that are ongoing and upcoming. Keep the faith and believe. There are miracles flowing in the unseen. Open to the mystery and trust.
The Moon is opposed Mars during this Full Moon, and that adds extra intensity to the skies and to the shifts that can come quickly. It can also bring surges of emotion rising to the surface, which we need to see.
The Full Moon tells us that we need to end the battle we have within ourselves, especially where we are fighting being vulnerable and open. The time has come to honor our feelings and to let our guard down when it comes to letting in those we love. This can be a call to deepen trust and open in our intimate relationships, or to let our friends or family into our inner world.
The purpose of life is not to go it alone. Being strong means reaching out and opening when you need. It also means realizing that we are worthy of receiving love.
This is a huge time of illumination when it comes to our feelings being revealed, especially where we have been suppressing or hiding them. Pluto and Neptune are still retrograde, and they are helping much to be brought into the light from unexpressed emotions to secrets. This can be a time of big revelations, so be ready for information that can come out, it can be game-changing.
The Full Moon and the lunar eclipse drop us deep into our emotions. They remind us to not become detached. Feel. Express. Don’t pinch yourself off, build walls, or be aloof. If you want authentic love, the time for holding yourself back from intimacy is over. This can be a place of looking at our fear of involvement and where we are scared to open ourselves.
There is powerful medicine here if we are present with what we need to work through and see fully. We have the power during this eclipse cycle to make big changes, especially in our relationships, both with others and ourselves. Use this energy.
This is an amazing time for problem-solving. Ideas and solutions flow easily during this Moon, and new understanding of ongoing situations is very possible. This new insight can bring unconventional approaches and solutions that are good for all parties involved to the table. As this is a potent time to seek knowledge, it is also a very powerful time for divination.
This Moon tells us to expect the unexpected, as surprises can show up out of the blue, causing shifts to plans or changes to be set into motion. This can cause stress in our relationships. Pay attention to the lessons that are being revealed to you, to the synchronicity that is being shown by the Universe, and to the messages that are coming. This insight can be valuable for the future.
This Moon is showing us ways that we can explore unknown territory and push the limits of our world. This is a good time to be ambitious and set your sights on your own success. The asteroid goddess Vesta is in Virgo, which mirrors this self-focused energy. This can also highlight how we want to be seen by others and be recognized for the talent that we are bringing into the world.
We need to get clear on how we see ourselves first, and make sure that we are appreciating our own medicine and seeing our value. Everyone else will follow, I promise.
Be aware that you are not taken advantage of when partnering with others. Make sure that who you are getting into projects or business with have the same focus as you, otherwise you could wind up doing all the work or being swindled. Watch whom you trust. This Full Moon eclipse is reminding us to not make any rash decisions until we are sure that the information we are receiving is true and not false.
No matter what you are working on or where you find yourself during this Moon, follow your heart’s desire. This is a big theme during this eclipse season, and this Aquarius Full Moon is sandwiched by two Leo New Moons, which are all about following your heart. You have to follow your heart because no one is going to follow it for you.
