Full Moon in Aquarius- August 7, 2017

Full Moon in Aquarius- August 7, 2017

This Full Moon in water-bearer Aquarius is also a Lunar Eclipse, making it a powerful time for everyone. From this energy we become more focused on issues that affect the world, helping us to see a bigger picture and gain new perspectives. Aquarius also encourages change within our lives and in our environment. It's helpful to remember to take a step back and be smart about the choices we make, as it will have an impact on everyone in our lives and society! 

Aquarius rules friendships and groups. Now would be a favorable time to reach out to our peers and make meaningful connections. Be aware of your surroundings during this time, as Mars is opposite this eclipse, bringing impatient, impulsive energy into the mix. Let us not rush into things based on emotional reactions, and instead stay clear and thoughtful. This will be supported by (Jupiter, planet of Luck) Libra, trine the (Moon) Aquarius eclipse as well, allowing us to be optimistic and balanced. 

Air signs are idealistic and creative, helping us to see things from more than one point of view. This comes in hand when opportunities for material and social success will present themselves. By having a generous and positive attitude, we can serve as good examples for others and gain popularity for the right reasons. People will recognize those who speak up for what's fair and just in a situation. 

Expressing our thoughts through artistic vision can serve as an inspiration and bring people together for a good cause. Charitable causes remind us to be grateful for our experience and to remember to keep a sense of purpose in our life decisions. Since this is a Full Moon Eclipse, it's a powerful time of transformation and release. Let go of what no longer serves you to create space for new beginnings. Rituals are a great way to rid ourselves of stagnant energy.  Charging any crystals or gemstones you have in your home by bathing them in the Moonlight is an easy and effective tool. Release stuck energy by smudging Sage, or Sandalwood to cleanse your Aura and the energy of your home.  Whether it's mediation, yoga, a relaxing bath, or simply your favorite herbal tea, these practices help to cleanse your body, mind and soul. Have a safe and Happy Full Moon! 

Be Well. -
