Do you feel a strong rumbling happening either literally or metaphorically? The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius at 4 degrees on July 27th, 2018. It is one of the more stronger or potent full moons that we have experienced in a very long time. This Full Moon phase is called the “Blood Moon” and it will be a part of a long powerful Total Lunar Eclipse. This signifies a pivotal time upon the Earth and its history as well as within collective consciousness. In India, this Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse happens during “Guru Purnima.” It marks a time where the Guru or teacher is celebrated and we can be thankful for both the inner wise one or teacher, Spiritual teachers or beings and any physical teachers who willing impart wisdom, love and knowledge.
A Lunar Eclipse symbolizes endings, closing of chapters, completion and even letting go of a major issue, relationship, theme etc. A Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon phase) is a more stronger full moon. It can be literal or symbolic ending or change, yet make no mistake this particular Lunar Eclipse is a potent one with all the additional configurations happening within the same time.
The Moon in Aquarius ‘Opposition’ to Sun in Leo. The Full moon phase symbolizes illumination of something or an issue within the subconscious or that which is hidden is revealed. The astrological sign of Aquarius is a fixed mode of energy and an air element. The Moon in Aquarius symbolizes emotional detachment, feeling eccentric, need for freedom as well as being emotionally friendly and desire to help the community or friends. During the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse there is a possibility that some emotions will thaw out from the deep freeze or state of numbness.
During the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, there is a strong urgency to clear away past emotional baggage, reactions, unresolved hurts, resentments. The emotional level has a chance to reboot and the Lunar Eclipse themes unfold over the course of the next six months in the area of life where the Lunar Eclipse occurs (look in the Natal Chart for 4 degrees Aquarius).
The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius makes a strong aspect to Mars in Aquarius Retrograde square Uranus in Taurus (trine Saturn in Capricorn). There is a very strong symbolic emotional turbulence and discombobulation happening. The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse makes a tight conjunction to Mars retrograde in Aquarius (while Mars squares Uranus for the second aspect…one more to follow in the coming two months) and this symbolizes an internal impatience, shocks, frenetic frenzy or anger and powerlessness. Though it is also possible to see upswing of pretty intense energy of emotional chaos, out of control, deeply exhausting is happening for most. It is appropriate to say… “sudden change or disruption of the norm” that alters the future path. A deep urge to break free of the past is there. Though sometimes, to break-free is to Spiritually accept where you are fully on all levels and let the resistance (based in fear and lack of trust go).
Having a rigid idea or fixed perception about how things “should” be rather than accepting how things are will add to the standstill. In this, one opposes life. Take away the stop signs and says, “Yes, Life and the Divine/God, I am willing to experience greater freedom.” There is always a higher solution contained with in the challenge. We must first shift and open to new ways and energies.
Also, many may feel bouts of of being disconnected, disjointed, frustrated, depleted and even stagnate is possible. Rest assured, energies shift all the time and so in the aftermath or after the peak, a shift may be experienced. Best to spend time in Nature, meditation, taking extra good care of self, engaging in Spiritual practice and feeling through all emotional
My sense is a symbolic cracking open or major click or shift may happen more than likely next week and thereafter. An ending of a really major chapter on the planet (individually and collectively) is occurring. At the same time, I’m sensing some really tangible breakthroughs are happening in unusual ways too. Honor the unsettling and the chaotic, for there is a new order that will come in as timing unfolds. Pushing or forcing will only exhaust you due to the symbolism of Mars retrograde make choices and pace actions accordingly
The other Retrograde beginning now is Mercury retrograde in Leo at 23 degrees and will continue for the next three weeks. This phase symbolizes a time of introspection around communication, thinking, mental attitudes. Think of it as a mental retreat to help reboot the nervous system. There may be “drama or melodrama” to explanations. Cut through the dross and illusions to extract the truth. Use wisdom in communication as there could be miscommunication or missing words which promote more conflict. People, clients, customers from the past may show up with unusual messages, resolve past issue(s), return to connect again. There is a choice to be made. Alter the course to make it even more empowering or stay on the old course that is embedded with emotional frustrations when the person/people of the past show up. Be conscious in the decision making.
Both Mars and Mercury are retrograde at the time of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius. This symbolizes a very important time of change of path, inner reflection and transforming outdated perceptions and behaviors which inhibit the future that is desirable and uplifting.
The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius signifies a major turning point in life that supports to shift hopes, wishes and ideas about the future. The most important message of the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius is be a conscious participant in moving and being in the flow with life. Sudden departures are possible yet they may be very meaningful and will bring a new birthing in the aftermath. Be conscious of this time period three days leading up to, day of and three days after the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius. Look for unusual insights and Spiritual blessings to be given along the way.
