FULL MOON in AQUARIUS (almost lunar eclipse), August 18, 2016- Letting go may bring joy from the unexpected?
Well, last night when I did my radio show on SGN/Going Beyond Astrology I went to publish it something occurred and it disappeared forever. Oh well. I guess the unexpected Uranus energy was too much. You can read about the Full Moon in Aquarius in this post if you didn’t get a chance to listen in.
As the year speeds by I wonder how many of you have actually awakened from the sleep that has kept you prisoner for a long time. It amazes me that life changes around you yet many are so stuck in belief patterns which are keeping you from leaping into a new reality. This keeps you from noticing what it is you are here to do for yourself and humanity. Isn’t it about time those belief structures dissolve and you allow yourself to be free from the past. Oh, here I go again talking about letting go of the past. Well, the energy is changing and it is going to affect you eventually. I say, go with it and do your own bidding instead of letting the unexpected take you for a ride where you may not like it. Hey, it takes some clarity to reach your destination within the realm of this world. Clarity comes when you give up being stuck and push through it. Rebirth anyone? Will you actually allow it…I mean will your ego support this? Nah! Ego is in control and that’s all that matters. But is it? You tell me. Things are going to get even faster and big shifting will take place. If you know what direction you are headed then you can ride around it instead of being affected by it. Your choice! Some will say how negative…no this is real. “When enough people shift their belief structures to look at the world in fresh, new ways, cultural paradigms shift” a quote from Zen Gardner
And this period from March has been saying you may be paying some possible karmic dues. It was tough for many since Saturn was retrograde in Sagittarius. This gave you an opportunity to fix whatever had to be fixed. Do you feel you were tested? It was to make sure you were ready to take on the extra responsibility? The lessons you learned might be hard but they are valuable. Saturn stationed direct on August 13 and you should come to terms with the relevant issues and be ready to take on the next phase. With Venus in Virgo opposite Neptune in Pisces taking place during this time you may watch out for any predators in your life or be careful on dating sites until this aspect passes by.
This Full Moon in Aquarius is an almost lunar eclipse. It is a close miss and so it is a bit more powerful than a regular full moon. It takes place on August 18, 2106 in 25 degrees 51’ at 5:26am EDT; 2:26am PDT; and 9:26am GMT. Uranus in Aries is trine (easy aspect) to the Sun in Leo and sextile the Moon in Aquarius. It is saying to you to open up more and broaden your friendships. It can bring you in contact with more social groups and lead you to what your grand wish is in life in an out of the ordinary way. This full moon almost immediately goes void of course (no other aspects before it goes into Pisces) so even if it is looked at as an almost eclipse it will dissipate quickly. Leading up to this Full Moon the energy takes off to the heights and you may wish to watch your words and thoughts since this is a time when they can become reality. Find something about which to smile.
How this Full Moon in Aquarius will affect you personally really depends on how you handle Aquarian energy. Some will have a more difficult time to handle it than others. Some of you will feel like a blast of fresh air has come into your life. The day may not evolve as you most expect. So just be open to what it brings to you. Some may act contrary just because they choose to be that way. If others act out just don’t take it personally. Uranus is the modern ruler of Aquarius. Mr. Aquarius is unorthodox you might say and a bit quirky. And since Uranus at present is retrograde in Aries it is an almost revolutionary fighting for freedom. Stir up the revolution he might be saying to those who are listening. Not everything is out in the open with you and your weird thinking because Uranus is going backwards. Right now it is more personal and a bit introverted with this Full Moon in Aquarius.
To me this Full Moon in Aquarius is saying that this is another look at the new paradigm which has been trying to emerge for some time. If those holding onto old beliefs and ingrained patterns would just let them go then life will become something totally different then it is right now. Many say this is me and I am refusing to let go of what rings true with me. Ok. You continue the stubborn act as a child having a tantrum. What do these old patterns do for you? Why is it you are fearful of acknowledging them and giving them up. Is it because your mother told you so…you are this way or that way and now you mimic exactly what she said many years past. Stop now. Right now and take a breath and look at what is happening in your life. Has it changed? No. Do you wish it would do so? Maybe! But then you think oh, no, my friends will desert me, my spouse will not like me and my children will make fun of me. And you know what there is so much more and you just let your ego rule and control and threaten and nothing happens.
And since the Sun in Leo is also trine Uranus in Aries you are filled with joy and fun today and over the next week if you wish to try something a bit different, now is the time to do it. Enjoy the good feelings that have popped up out of nowhere. Don’t they feel better than the other you?
There may be some mental tension and challenges that arise for some of you at the Aquarius Full Moon inconjunct the Mercury-Jupiter conjunction in Virgo. It asks you to look at the details the shift is taking you and sift a bit through it. Take a walk if you need to relax. Also, your dreams may be intense and quite vivid. It is through Mercury and Jupiter that you manifest all that crazy energy in a stable and useful form.
Venus in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn at 15:17degrees is the strongest aspect in Full Moon in Aquarius apart from the almost eclipse itself. Perhaps the good news coming out of your special mission has something to do with big improvements in your love life and finances. You are at your most attractive and you will like just being around others. Venus is also conjunct the North Node in Virgo today (exact) August 16 so it is a great day to ask for what you want but be careful as to that wish, because you just might get it and that energy continues for a short time down the road. Also Jupiter is inconjunct Uranus in Aries so if you are creative you may come up with something a bit unusual whether in music or artwork or any other creative ideas that pop in.
Let this Full Moon energy open up to the unexpected. Take time for fun and unusual creativeness. Keep your heart open. Tune into Going Beyond Astrology Tuesday nights 9pm EDT. Thank you for reading and blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan
