Freedom!! Full Moon in Aquarius - Aug 9
The Aquarius Full Moon on Aug 9 is a reminder to everyone currently living on Planet Earth of the Reason we are here, and the Reason we are witnessing the messes we currently are bombared with daily on the news and in the papers. And the way we can move through these times of Change.
This Age of Aquarius is about one thing above all else - The People: Humanity, the Human Race, Equality, Equal Rights, Individuality, Independence and the right to Live and Let Live.
Oh boy, do a lot of souls on the planet need to catch up. However every player on the globe is playing his or her part as only they know how, and in this free-will Universe all is allowed, even the darkest of the dark.
I caught a segment on the TV late whilst working, the other night. A show on Crime, by Public Access TV. A professor was talking about how the actions of criminals secure and safeguard society from 'unrest'. By witnessing an arrest the public gets to see the boundaries, how far they can go to test them and repurcussions of their actions.
I agreed with it halfway, because too much of that and you have the possibiltiies of a Police State, where the laws become so tight there is barely any freedom left. But I did resonate with the fact that everyone plays their part - even the criminal. After all, who wasn't touched by the news of Diana's murder? Hearts opened. The same with the events in New York. People stop,. look around, wake up and care. Sometimes it takes us being victims to care about one another.
The stories of the family's victim in New York, refusing to accept the bloodlust most had towards the people who were reported to have committed the crimes. Forgiveness and acceptance in the face of personal destruction and pain was the sign, for me, of the Compassion we'll need to move through the waves ahead.
The Aquarian Full Moon reminds us of our part in the Human Drama unfolding. We all have our say, just as we all represent one page of Earth's book - our every action and thought imprinted on its pages, leaving a trace. Every whisper, matching every scream. Every hug matching every punch.
History books are full of the loudest voice -the voice of the victor. But often, the ones who won weren't the ones who wanted to share the Truth.
This Full Moon we'll be reminded that:
We are all equal - no matter who we are, what we've done and how we feel
We deserve to be free to be who we are - despite, creed, race, heritage, sexuality, background, looks, class
Craziness is 'in' - that the ones we celebrate now show their true colors and we love them for it!
New Age principles are real - unlimited love, the freedom to live and let live
Humanity is in this together - global warming effecs everyone, so too does war
We are all one - one flag for one planet, yet connected to agreater cosmic family
It takes each individual to make the whole!
Friends are our guiding light, mirroring our souls and sharing the ride
There is Power in Groups!
Many Hands Make Light Work/Lightwork - the spiritual term for bringing more knowledge and truth to the planet
True Freedom is the power of Choice (not who wins American Idol, but how to live) and the freedom of knowledge.
Truth = Freedom
Our only duty is To Live & Let Live.
What a concept. As the Full Moon shines above us we'll start to see the beginnings of the Saturn-Neptune unfoldment. Let me explain more.
If you read back on past blogs of mine you'll read up on the planetary alignment that is coming that's a Big One (one of the more profound ones that effects generations, not just people living in far off places).
The Full Moon will fall in Aquarius, the sign of the People, and activate Neptune in Aquarius (cosmic consciousness) while opposing Saturn in Leo (the repressive leader).
In Health Astrology - each sign represents a part/function of the body. Aquarius = circulation, the shins, ankles. Pisces. Leo - the heart and spine.
This period - culminating in the Saturn/Neptune opposition near the end of August, could be summed up as a conflict between the "heart and circulation" of our global community. The 'Global Village' that Marshall McCluen talked about years ago is a reality - through technology, we are now all linked up. We get to see, witness, feel and experience what others experience - often Real Time.
The heart of society (Leo) is still closed to some degree, and is reflected in the hearts (and heart conditions...) of those 'in charge'. (Saturn = repressive energy and is currently in Leo). Maybe this is now manifested as Repressive Leaders once more, who care less about the people (Aqu) and more about their personal stakes and power (leo).
The backbone of unhealthy leadership continues to crumble (Saturn relates to bone, and Leo relates to the back) and as Neptune opposes Saturn later this month, (Neptune relates to liquids, blood, the pineal gland and secretions) there will be an outpouring of liquid (oceans, gases, tears?) to soothe the human spirit in the hopes our hearts will be opened once more (Leo).
What events will trigger this? Only time will tell. "As above, so below" - the events on earth reflect the planetary drama played out above.
On the personal level we can help and this is the exciting part!
This week - the Full Moon reminds us to stay alert to oportunities to celebrate our differences. Avoid cultural clashes. Afford others the same rights you want, desire and deserve. It sounds simple but it could just alleviate the problems in the bigger picture. It's worth a try anyway, right?
Celebrate who you are - apart from anyone else you know.
Then, celebrate the band of Merry Men or Woman who are your possee, your kin, your club or group. The ones who walk with you in this life. Celebrate their unique perspective.
I'm excited about the possibilities of this Full Moon - the PEOPLE are about to rise up stronger than ever before against repressive and restrictive regimes - which can only be faced by leaders as a threat. Which may lead to further confrontations - but as long as we remember that we are all connected and All One - what we witness is merely the playing out of two sides that are in actuality, ONE WHOLE.
If we fight on any level now we lose. If we refrain from indulding or accepting repression or mistreatment in our personal lives, the collective heals.
In reality we are one whole - many souls, a fragmented hologram of a whole.
How strange, eh?
Picture it - a soul, fragmenting itself out into two parts and playing the role of two both tennis players in a match.
Both end up winners and both end of losers. Is it a real fight? Yes and No. Both feel what they feel, and are correct to feel that. But imagine the view from above - witnessing both, feeling both, but siding with neither.
As the poles shift (symbolically represented by people taking sides) we'll have the choice to see the Bigger Picture of the story of Earth's inhabitants in one of the most dynamic, exciting Spiritual Wake-Up Calls of our times.
Everything is connected, and everyone. And how soon we'll see and be reminded once more.
May the waters flow, and the circulation of the planets energy (humanity) opens the hearts of Leaders who could truly help us unite, and cease the endless dramas of old from repeating.
Unplug from the global drama, and enjoy your own freakishness, your own craziness, the insanity of your own life, and live your never-to-be-repeated life story with the fullest glory you can muster.
It takes courage to live these days - and yet more, to risk rejection, and dare to be yourself - with no apologies.
