Full Moon in Aquarius Full Lunar Eclipse

Today, Friday, July 27th at 1:20 pm PST (4:20 pm EST) the Moon will be Full under the sign of Aquarius. We also will be experiencing a Full Lunar Eclipse and if you would like more information on the Eclipse and other planetary movements you can read about them from a few of my favorite astrologists: Chani Nicholas or Pat Liles. Lots of energy out there to work with and be aware of under this Full Moon.

I love those born under the sign of Aquarius…they are beautiful dreamers, have a deep love for freedom, are visionaries and want to change the world to make it a better place. We need them always and forever to teach us their gifts. When we have a Moon in Aquarius it gives us the opportunity to briefly take a ride through their lens and see how we too can join them in catching our dreams, tapping into our humanitarian side and finding ways to join them in making this world a better place.

They are the perfect representations of the energy needed now as we move through the Age of Aquarius. We have much to learn from them ~ so welcome their teachings as we move through this Full Moon in Aquarius with a Full Lunar Eclipse. And although we will not be able to view the Lunar Eclipse here in North American I like how Pat Liles suggests pulling the energy through the Earth into your prayers.

Even if we cannot see the eclipse in North America where it will be daytime, our ceremonies and meditations will be infused with its energy.  Imagine pulling the eclipse energy through the Earth and into your prayers. 

I love to remember to tap into the energies of these planetary movements and although there is so much to read out there about how the energies can touch our lives, I like to connect with myself on a deeper level to see what I need to shift. I try to pay attention to the things that happen, how I deal with them and the words and advice that come from friends and loved ones. The messages are always there if I listen and sometimes I just know where to go to get the information I need to hear.

Aquarius is a masculine, fixed, air sign, is ruled by Uranus and rules the calves and ankles. Fixed, masculine energy is unstoppable and aggressive and can teach us to take our projects to completion. Our ankles represent balance and give us the ability to adapt to the ground we walk on. The right ankle is yang (masculine) and the left ankle is yin (feminine) ~ trouble with the ankles, according to Louise Hays, identifies issues of inflexibility and guilt ~ they also represent the ability to receive pleasure. She has an affirmation that I want to share with you to carry through this Full Moon and place in your Full Moon Water ~

I accept all the pleasure life has to offer

A few thoughts to carry under this Full Moon ~

  • What brings you pleasure?
  • What project do you want to bring to completion?
  • How are your ankles supporting you at this time in your life?

A teacher and colleague Candice Covington shares that one of the energies a Full Moon carries is the chance to restore universal memory. Aquarius is the water bearer and it is said that through water the light of consciousness flows.

A ritual for this Full Moon is to use this heightened energy to focus your prayers on your Full Moon Water.{Below}

Here are a few gemstones you may want to use for your Full Moon Water Ritual tonight: pearl, moonstone, tektite or rose quartz or amethyst. Use the one that connects you with pleasure. Use a pearl white or silvery moon cloth under the jar and place rosemary, myrrh or frankincense on the cloth, on yourself, or near your bed (or all three!) to capture the light and energy of this Moon.

Again, below is how to create your Moon Water and remember to share your words with your water ~ it will guide you and place your words inside your body as you drink it or use it in a ceremony between now and the New Moon in Leo, on August 11th.

This is a time for free thinking and expressing ourselves as the wild, unique persons we ARE!

Full Moon Water Ritual

The Moon. Luna. Mwezi. Grandmother. We know her across the world under different names, but as her light shines down on us she makes each of us feel like we are her special one, the one she really wants to communicate with, the one who has something special to offer the world…and we do, each of us.

Creating rituals can be nourishing and turn you inward to your quieter spaces. I would like to offer you one such ritual that can be done each month if you like, a Full Moon Water Ritual that I love to do and find healing benefits from. It may help you connect with new parts of yourself, brighten your day or help quiet you so you can hear the sweet words your soul is sharing. Gathering the light of the Moon into water is a way to connect to your feminine power.

Creating Moon Water under the Full Moon is an ancient ritual for men and women and is best charged on the first night of the Full Moon. There are many ways to use the Moon Water once it is charged: I love the most ancient and sacred practice of drinking this moon magic! You may want to use it for blessings, for cleansing your chakras, making tea or for watering your plants ~ maybe they need a boost of moon water love! You will intuitively know what to do with yours once you hold the power of the charged water in your hands.

Here are the steps to creating your Moon Water Magic:

  1. To begin, you will want to pick a glass container, jar, or bowl – something that will hold the sacred feeling of what you want the water to carry over the next 28 days. The vessel can vary with each full moon – sometimes large, sometimes small, colored or clear. You may feel inspired to decorate the vessel with colors by surrounding it with gemstones, flowers, leaves, candles or even draw or write on it…be creative!
  2. On the eve of the Full Moon fill your container using filtered or distilled water. Bless the water, by holding it and visualizing the water collecting the energy of the moonlight. Share your love and intention with the water by speaking into it – tell it what you want the light to shine on in your life.3.
  3. Cover the container and place it outside, if possible, where the moon can shine into the water all night. If you cannot place it outside, choose a windowsill where it can gather the greatest number of moonlit hours.
  4. The next morning collect the container with the Moon Water, hold and bless it again thanking Grandmother Moon for her light and energy, then take your first sip!Every morning until the next full moon, take a sip of your Moon Water on an empty stomach. With each sip, you will strengthen yourself with the properties of the full moon. Open yourself to her energy of creativity, wildness, imagination, and brightness ~ she is there for you. Remember the blessings and intentions you placed in her and let this be a new way to start your day with gratitude and connection to the light within you.

    Moon energy is something we all experience bi-monthly as her ocean tides rise and fall and the Earth tides (body tides) create a displacement of the Earth, which is caused by the gravity of the Moon and the Sun. We may not feel it in an active sense any more than we do the spinning of the earth as it rotates on its axis, but as we tune into it we can feel her pull. We, women, are in a bodily ceremony with her every month as we follow her cycle of 28 days in our menses. We feel her rhythm as she wanes and waxes and she calls to us on a deeply emotional and nurturing level. We carry the vibration of her feminine power.
