It is even more necessary that we find this balance now, during the transformative time of 2012, referred to as The Shift, since it promises a shift in consciousness from greed to compassion, from separation to unity. Spiritually inclined people are often more interior, and keep their visions for a new world to themselves. It is time for dreamers to make their dreams known, and to find practical methods to engage in the world in order to make a difference, while still holding on to their spiritual values. This Moon in Pisces is a very strong one, since it combines with Neptune in Pisces, exponentially deepening the potential of our connection to Spirit. This Full Moon is a time to tap into your internal spiritual longings and find a way to bring them to manifestation through practical action in the external world.

For you: Imagine that you are this woman, one leg kneeling on the earth, and the other leg resting on the water in the pond. You could even physically take the position, to feel the balance in your body. You are comfortable both on land and water. You have a pitcher in each hand, filled with water, which contains the longings of your Soul. Pause and ask yourself, “What are the longings of my Soul? What is my intuition prompting me to do?” Once you know, you pour one pitcher into the pond to keep your intuition flowing. You feel gratitude for the solid contact of this relationship. You pour the other pitcher onto the ground, and it makes five streams, each representing one of your senses – sight, taste, hearing, touch, and smell. You relish in your connection to the earth. Above you is a brilliant yellow star, which is your Spirit and the source of your radiance. Next to it are seven white stars, representing your chakras which align your Spirit to your body. Take another deep breath, and ask that you be open to your Spirit, and that your body is in alignment with each chakra.. The purple mountains in the distance indicate the long journey you are on, but the bird in the tree nearby promises that if you listen to your still sweet voice within, that you will always be guided in the right direction. Take some deep breaths, allow your spiritual essence to expand within you, let it radiate through you until you see it move into the world where you will take clear practical actions, large or small, to let your light be seen.

Full Moon August 1 in Aquarius

Full Moon at 11:27 pm EDT, but the energy lasts until Friday when the Moon sets at dawn. This beautiful goddess high on a hill overlooking the Mediterranean Sea is the perfect embodiment of the Full Moon in Aquarius. Known as The Water Bearer, many people mistake Aquarius for a water sign. But Aquarius belongs to the element Air, so rather than exhibiting the embracing qualities of the emotional water signs, Aquarius instead has a broad perspective and expansive vision, with qualities of objectivity, discernment, detachment, intellectualism, and clarity. In many ways it is the most aloof of all the zodiac signs, since it needs to keep its distance in order to maintain its objectivity.

But during this Full Moon, the normally cool Aquarius get pulled into an all-embracing hug, enfolded by land and sea, bringing to Aquarius a strong desire to love and nurture. Aquarius takes these desires and expresses them in broad perspectives and global visions that include humanitarian efforts to heal the world. Aquarius works through advanced technology, so much of Aquarian humanitarian work occurs over the the internet. Signing petitions, sending donations on-line, environmental tourism, and communicating through email are all ways to express Aquarian love.

For You: Take some time over this Full Moon on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and even Friday dawn, to honor your bright, visionary, and objective mind. A good mind is an absolute essential in these fast paced and expansive times. It probably feels like you have to keep your mind busy all the time just to keep up with news, events, and changes that constantly appear on our technological screens. But this Full Moon is a reminder that it is necessary to let your mind slow down, relax, hang out, and observe without doing. Look at the Goddess overlooking the water and imagine that you are as calm, clear, and grounded as she is. Feel yourself balanced by the physical qualities of earth and the emotional connections of water. In slowing down your mind, you will discover that there is a deeper source of knowledge just below the surface that is available to you. Let yourself relax into that inner ocean and see what naturally and easily arises.
