The Sun in Aquarius with this full Moon/eclipse signals that now is the time to take an ideal, a vision we’ve held in our hearts and dreams and allow the fire of this Moon and our emotions, individually and collectively, to burst into our spirit-mind, past our ego-mind, and blossom into manifestation. To create a strong and clear action, and to create a strong, solid form of beauty and significance that will last for a very long time. We are now entering a time where what we create from our hearts and spirit-minds will be able to radiate outward to touch others more powerfully than before and where the work we do will be more organized and more productive.
In order to get to this path we will be facing our egos. We’ll have to grapple with our fears, our perceived limitations, and what we believe is the foundation to create our world. We’ll have to examine and release what we believe are the rules we must live and die by, what we use to create the world we live in and what we use as the foundation for the creation of our world and lives – love or fear. The good thing is we’re being lovingly supported on this journey as we face our egos and enter into into deep contemplation.
And for those of you who follow the ancient mysteries we move through the cycles of life with, this is the perfect set of energies to work with as we move closer to Imbolc. Imbolc is the time when the goddess Persephone begins her springtime journey from the underworld and back to the light of living on Mother Earth.
We don’t have to understand any of this in just one moment today. It’s always there for us to embrace, whenever we’re ready, so be patient with yourself and others.
Eclipses surprise us with information, so if what you feel passionate about creating is not what you were thinking it would be, that’s perfectly fine! Be open to all the infinite possibilities that are within and around you!
The eclipse with this full Moon is also about endings. It brings us new beginnings at new levels to explore. It’s about light shining on what we need to make adjustments to in our beings and in our lives – personally and in the greater communities. This eclipse creates an environment of going inward to seek one’s self combined with the full Moon and full light shining on us plus all the planets in direct motion drawing our focus outward.
Pay attention to what goes on in your life just prior to, during and just after an eclipse. Those will be the elements and dreams in your life to focus on.
We also have a rare time where all the planets are in direct motion. Combined with everything else, this is a giant cosmic blast of light to show us that WE create our world. WE choose love or fear as the foundational emotion to create our world with/from. WE have all the elemental resources we need to make our lives of caring, sacred beauty happen. All of the planets in direct motion is our energies, focus, thoughts, feelings, ideas and our literal physical movements directed outward rather than inward. At the same time, the eclipse is a period of time where the light from the Sun, which is reflected off the Moon, is temporarily cut off by the Earth moving into the path of the Sun’s light to the Moon.
The key here is to balance between light and dark (dark being spending time in quiet, contemplative solitude). Leo is love and the one-to-one relationship we each have with the Divine. It’s where we are in balance with the Divine, doing our thing in partnership with the Divine- we are the other half of the Divine represented on Earth. Balance here means living in our own way, not performing for anyone else, but acting with the Divine to be your own agreed upon before birth bright spot on Mama Earth…right here, right now.
So much outward directed energy with so much sunlight can interrupt our ability to feel the connection we have with one another. There will also be a greater than usual focus on the ego and the ego-mind. Grounding in our hearts and bodies and paying attention to our emotions can help. If we remain in balance (light and darkness), we will be able to access our own inner compasses, our own sense of love versus fear, our own way of building our unique paths into and in the world.
You can’t predict what eclipses will highlight for you; you can only patiently wait and see what they bring up, then take action. Individually and collectively. Because the Moon is always involved, we can be certain that our collective emotions and unconsciousness will be triggered, somehow, somewhere. That’s why it’s so important to be awake and aware of, first and foremost, YOUR own self. It’s not so easy then to be swept up in the unconscious reactions of the group ego-mind. If you’re aware of your own self, you can respond to what’s going on from your own conscious foundation, awareness and skill set. Leo is acting with the courage of our hearts even if that means we stand alone in our truth.
Keep in mind that while these are overall cosmic events, each one of us will experience them in our own ways. Be open to and aware of yourself, your feelings, thoughts, desires, fears, what draws you to it with love and passion, your sense of compassion, your sense of creativity, love of children. Explore and express your unique relationship with the Divine. Ask yourself how much of a risk you’re willing to take to make your dreams come true and to make things truly better in the world.
I don’t like getting political with my Moon blogs, but I do want to share this: people stuck in too much ego and little or no heart will be sensing this energy as a potential way to immortalize themselves in the greater culture. They’ll do it through any means necessary and at any cost. The spiritual point of this full Moon and all its gifts is, through your heart-centered connectedness to your spirit-mind, giving your dream a material life, giving birth to your vision in a noble way, well, that will be your enduring piece of love + power. But you won’t think about doing it for that reason…you’ll be doing it because the creative power of love and Soul leave you no choice but to joyfully manifest your passion no matter what anyone else is doing.
