Collectively, we are in the window of entering
THE AGE OF AQUARIUS!!
Collectively, we clearing the lingering shadows of the last
We get one Aquarius Full Moon a year and it reminds us all of the direction we are heading! This craziness that we are all in is actually a Powerful Awakening Time!! As we are moving into the Age of Aquarius, we are all compelled to make a radical shift in consciousness. In order to come into greater consciousness (awakening), we must first heal. Healing means clearing our shadow, releasing patterns and outdated belief systems as well as letting go of suffering and old hurts.
Transitional times are uncomfortable. Yes, there is so much darkness in the news right now. And its not just in America. There is a rise in political polarization, protests, fear, hatred and violence happening around the world. Collectively, we are in a unavoidable time of clearing out the shadow. This is necessary for us as we all prepare to WAKE UP!!
The exact transit date of the beginning of the Age of the Aquarius is debatable, however astrologers agree that we are definitely in the birth canal. The Age of Pisces began over 2000 years ago with the birth of Jesus and Christianity. The theme of the Age of Pisces has been suffering, sacrifice and compassion. This was the time of the beginning of structured religions, most based on the belief system that we must suffer and sacrifice in order to be worthy in the eyes of God.
The Age of Aquarius brings Freedom, Consciousness and Awakening!!!
Aquarian energy shows us that we are all unique and different, but at the same time we are all connected. We are all living in a profoundly shifting time! We are moving away from Restriction towards Freedom. We are moving away from Structured Religion and towards Spirituality. We are moving away from Perfectionism, Pain and Suffering and moving towards Acceptance, Joy and Enlightenment (open hearts).
Full Moons remind us to bring more balance into our lives. With the Sun in Leo and the Moon in Aquarius we are encouraged to balance these two signs. With 4 planets in Leo we are feeling the Leo energy strongly. Leo is the sign most associated with Loyalty, Courage, Joy and the Heart Chakra. Leo encourages us to be in the present, to play, to express ourselves creatively, to be more romantic and to open our hearts. When was the last time you did something creative? Are you experiencing as much Joy as you would like? With the Moon in Aquarius we are reminded of our need to belong as well as our need for Freedom. What does Freedom mean to you? How do you give yourself Freedom?
Thursday's Full Moon has a bit of a kick as the Moon also opposes Mars and Venus. This can make us feel impatient with others (particularly your partner), irritable, angry, overreacting and take things more personally. If you are an Aquarius, you have been feeling this for a month as Mars has been opposite your Aquarius Sun since July 2nd. Be aware that you and others may be trigger happy. Consider pausing before reacting. Notice where you are out of balance. Do you need more time alone? Does your health need some nurturing? Are you taking life and yourself too seriously? Do you need to have more fun?
As we continue to move through a month of so much Leo energy our creative powers are awakened. Consider allowing this creativity to be active in your thoughts, intentions and actions. Over the next few weeks we are reminded to open our hearts, and to choose Love rather than fear. When we live and create from our hearts (Love) we are more aligned with our Soul and more open to what the Universe has to offer!
This weekend, consciously open your heart by allowing yourself to be a little more creative, a little more playful and a lot more loving!
“I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.” Oprah Winfrey (Aquarius)
Lots of Love and Light Your Way!
