FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS
The distinctive quality of Aquarius is:
• NEW AGE
• Rapid transformation of communication: computers
• Intellectual, disciplined mind
• Out of the box mindset
Aquarius Nakshatra of this Full Moon: Purva Bhadrapada. This means that this full Moon is sitting in front of the two main stars, Markab and Scheat, in the constellation ‘Pegasus’:
MARKAB: brings honor and success but with great sorrow.
SCHEAT: well, I know what that sounds like to me! Must be the Sanskrit origins to our current cuss word shit! It also brings misfortune.
This nakshatra has highly unique mystical qualities. Shiva used Ajaikapada, which is believed to be a unicorn, as the carrier of agni or fire. Ajaikapada rides with Rudra, the God of storms. This is the frequency of Transformation brought on by the burning away of what is not working. This is the frequency of real change.
Deep, foundational serious change is almost always difficult in this 2 dimensional world. You are always faced with options, and if you have grown accustomed to not listening to your heart, you will find change painful. When you get to point where you have exhausted your former choices, you will find yourself burning in the fire of transformation.
Purva Bhadrapada is represented as the two headed man which is a reflection of what happens when we are looking at the past and the future. In fact, if we live fully present in each moment we will not spend too much time in this place.
Reflecting too long on either the past or the future causes stress! The Past is OVER! Get over it!! The future is not yet here. Dream about it but do not worry about it. IF YOU TAKE CARE OF THE PRESENT, THE FUTURE WILL TAKE CARE OF ITSELF. Yet, there is a healthy version of relating to past and future. The past is our teacher. The future our dream. This full moon will bring up this frequency. The Sun in the opposite sign of Leo offers the fire to burn and help you transform. Globally. We are currently on the final waves of the 2000 year Piscean Age. What is interesting about this fact is that the completion of the 26,000 year of the great year cycle of the sun in 2012 and the concurrent tumultuous times that are always present during a change of ages. Everything seems to be burning.
AQUARIUS IS ABOUT BREAKING DOWN OLD WAYS
This Full Moon asks you to burn old patterns which no longer serve you. In order for established organizations to break down there must be a force strong enough to shock the system. We are clearly in this time. Allowing the old systems to fall is where we are AT.
LEO SUN IS EGO
LEO is self. 180 Degrees from the Moon in Aquarius. LEO is the opposite balance to Aquarius. Leo is about the self vs Aquarian which is about the others. This full moon will have us all reflecting on what changes we are wiling to make personally in order to assist with the whole. Here is what explains perfectly the energy that is being reflected with this full moon energy. In the very wise words of Lao Tzu:
“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself, if you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation” -Lao Tzu
Reflecting the way that the current capitalist system has encouraged the proliferation of greed among men and women and children.
Purva Phalguni is the Nakshatra at 25 Degrees of This Full Moon Frequency. Purva Phalguni, which means, the later red one… Rules the good life; luxury, abundance. But if we all had infinite luxury we would relax and time time to swing in a hammock. Hammock is a symbol of this nakshatra. In order to find any balance we must rest. Animals in nature do not run all day. Humans are not designed to run all day. If everyone on earth had all they needed and felt abundant they would rest more, slow down, enjoy the magic that life Is.
If we are to follow Lao Tzu’s ancient wisdom, what if we collectively agree to spend more time in rest taking care of our own bodies and souls. If each of us commit to taking more time to take care of ourselves, burn away the pain of the past, agree to a painful transformation to reach a point where we can RELAX. Tranquility is not meant to be saved for some future date. Tranquility is our birthright. As a global society we have lost our way. When there is no way back, and no way forward as many are experiencing with the current gridlock of money flow, it is the best time to stop. There is no where to get but HERE NOW. Stop rushing. This full moon asks you come into the present moment, no matter how painful it may be. Step into the fire willingly. Allow the fire to burn within your soul like a clay pot in a kiln. Burn until you are strong and beautiful. Burn until you can hold the water within you and have it all be shaped like an angel that reflects LOVE.
If you do it yourself, you do it for your world. THIS FULL MOON HOLDS MASSIVE POWER.
In Lakesh, Shalom, Inch Allah, Namaste
