Feel Free & Free the Feeling!: Aquarius Lunar Eclipse (Aug 16)
Feeling antsy, excited, agitated, loopy, ready to blow, tense, alert, drowsy?
All of this and more - The Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is here (Aug 16) pulling on our heartstrings and souls, to free us up from another backlog of unmet needs, frustrated needs, old emotions and dated habits that no longer serve us.
Feel it, and like a balloon, let it go.
Whatever happens in the next few months, we're inundated with chances to shed emotional baggage trapping us from a life of true inner (and thus outer) freedom. If it's old, it's out. If it's replaying, it's time to hit Stop. If you're feeling it's time for an ending, it is.
Whatever you wind up feeling now is worth looking at as it's likely to be part of your psychic circuitry - but is it helping you achieve a goal, or hindering you by pulling you back into old emotional tides? is it familiar crap? This is your chance to deal with YOUR pattern.
That's the question - ask yourself Is this needed? Do I want to continue feeling this? Feelings are our free-will choice. Feelings = how we process what happens to us.
Disappointment only follows expectation. So remove expectation.
Jealousy only follows the judgment of comparison. So remove judgments.
Guilt follows acting against our better natures. So take the road you know is right for You.
Anger follows frustrated desire. So remove the desire or find a new way to pursue it.
Hate follows loss of control. So quit trying to gain control.
Depression follows prolonger anger. So release the anger and question the desire.
They all loop together of course. And emotions are myriad. Take your pick. Right now, each have something to reveal about You, Your Story. Your perceptions and Your take on life.
What is your Emotional Default?
Since society comes under the sign of Aquarius (individuals making up a collective) this Eclipse is likely to see many shifts play out on the global screen. Groups of people under emotional stress, turmoil, excitement or unrest. Take your pick. Lunar Eclipses shake up feelings to faciliate change and growth, Aquarius is the electrical energy of Change, Social Growth, Unique Individuality and Humanitarianism.
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.
The Aquarian Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 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).
In Health Astrology - each sign represents a part/function of the body. Aquarius = circulation, the shins, ankles. Leo - the heart and spine.
This period 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's passage through Leo showed us this, and now in Virgo we get to continue the theme of ill health amongst leaders as a sign of wounded leadership). 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 continued to crumble with Saturn leaving Leo (Saturn relates to bone, and Leo relates to the back) and moving into Virgo and we get to see all the glaring errors (Virgo rules precision) made in the name of the People they rule.
This Eclipse asks you: are you hanging with the right crowd? Is there more power for you in numbers - is there a Group you can join to share your ideas and ideals with others of Like Mind? Are you being a good friend to have good friends? Is it time to cut free and fly solo from your social circle/spiral? Are you truly heading in the direction of your dreams or are you aimless with no goal and all the time in the world to repeat old emotional dramas?
The Lunar Eclipse brings in the power of Neptune
Neptune = the Dissolver, Deceiver, the Smokescreen, the Subtle Signal, the Dream, the Illusion, the energy to fog up our road and remind us of our spirit and the 'other realm'.
On the base level - social deceit, lies amongst friends, monumental revelations of untruths. Smokescreens and mirrors, whitewashes and false trails, wild goose chases. Blame Games. A field day for modern politics.
On the personal level - the choice to disregard surface appearances and use our gut feelings to see what FEELS right. Intuition is the way to go, not what we're told or even shown. What is unseen holds more of a key to the real situation. A loosening of control or the need to know or the need to be or do anything. Allowing. Being receptive to change (Aquarius) but not personal ego change but what is best for us in the Bigger Picture (Neptune). What helps the whole instead of what serves only ourselves?
Compassion comes from direct experience and thus emotional understanding.
On the Higher Level: Neptune dissolves ego. We melt back into the pot we came from - the Collective Consciousness. A global "One". We're all connected. If we believe we are separate, pain increases to slowly and insidiously loosen our grip on things that bind us to that illusion. We begin to let go, and let live.
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.
More on the Eclipse soon, if you would like to schedule a special reading during this time you can choose between the Lunar Eclipse Reading ($75) or the discounted for August only $100 Hour Readings, unique to you and your chart.
FEEL your feeling, then free yourself from it. It's all just energy in motion, so why hog one particle/feeling?
