Super Full Moon in Aquarius – August 10, 2014
High on a distant hillside overlooking a broad perspective is the perfect place for 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 and exhibits qualities of discernment, detachment, objectivity, clarity and intellectualism. In many ways this is the most aloof Moon since it needs to keep its distance in order to maintain its objectivity and expansive vision. We are living in the Age of Aquarius, a time of humanitarian values and global ethics, explosion of technology, and the invisible webs of the internet that bind us together across the world, both for good and for ill.
But during this Full Moon the normally cool Aquarius gets pulled into the heart energy of the fiery Leo Sun which ignites a strong desire to create love. Aquarius takes this desire and expresses it in broad perspectives and global visions that include compassionate 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, internet classes, global meditations, and communicating through text and email are all ways to Aquarius expresses its love.
For You: This Moon is saying that it is time to lead with your heart and let your head follow. Aquarius usually likes to figure everything out intellectually, step by step, like a giant chess game. The needs of the heart are often secondary to calculated decisions. But in this Moon you are being asked to put the needs of your heart first. Feel into what you want to do, what your soul calls for you to do. Then, use the intellectual capacities and broad visions of Aquarius to figure out how to make it occur. Maybe you’ve been wanting to change jobs or start a relationship but you keep coming up with all the reasons it can never happen. Get in a comfortable place and take slow deep breaths until it feels like you are heart-centered and your mind is calm. Then ask your heart what it really wants to do. Be open to the answer. Once you discover your current heart’s desire let your inquisitive mind figure out how to get started. Doing research on the internet or tapping into your social network are perfect ways to put your Aquarian ship into orbit.
