Aquarius is the game-changer and revolutionary of the zodiac, making this Full Moon full of inspiration and potential. But like everything else in this world, Aquarius has its polarity. It can be erratic, aloof and it’s love for freedom can appear cold to others.
The Full Moon is happening within a few degrees of Saturn and in a T-Square to Uranus and the Nodes of the Moon. This is a hotspot for evolutionary leaps and an opportunity for some karma to get cleared. Saturn can be a challenging and serious energy, but it provides the medicine needed to achieve personal mastery. Uranus can help us see things from a completely new perspective, it may even point us in directions we never thought possible.
The recent New Moon in Leo has us working on Self-Expression, and observing any shadows in this area. If there is stuff you need to say, this full moon could be massively important. However, Uranus and Saturn are not always the most compromising energies, so here are some tips on how to maximise their benefits at this time.
Free Yourself Up - Aquarius needs space. Where can you give yourself a break? Look at where you are being too rigid and consciously loosen up your mindset. This is especially useful if you have an overactive sense of responsibility.
Activate Your Ears - Listening is vital for balance if you want to heard. Sometimes it gets so noisy in our head we struggle to hear the truth. Add listening meditations to your practice or learn a mantra.
Patience Makes Perfect - It’s easy to get caught up in the speed of modern life and expect change to happen instantly. Assess the steps that have already been taken towards your goal and acknowledge the wheel is in motion. Meditate on your relationship with time.
Self-Control - Inner discipline is abundant right now. Are you using it effectively? Self-denial, self-doubt, self-defensiveness and the expectations you have of yourself are good areas to explore. Can you apply some restraint to habits which don’t serve you? Look at where you beat yourself up and write a personal-positivity list.
Open Your Heart - An expression used a lot in spiritual circles, and can be difficult with some people! Try adding some Heart Opening Yoga or breath-work techniques to your daily practice if you struggle to find compassion for yourself and others.
Oak Tree Magic - The powerful Oak spirit has great medicine for grounding and focusing on your own path. I recommend finding your local Oak and asking for guidance. You will need to sit still and quiet to hear the message, and it’s only polite to leave a little offering as an exchange (Offerings should always be biodegradable and cause no harm to the tree or it’s residents).
Creating your own Full Moon Ritual will add power to any self-healing you do. Here are some suggested Essential Oils and Herbs to invigorate your senses and see more clearly the potential for change:
Crystals which work well under this Full Moon are:
Aquamarine - provides support and clarifies confusion and anxiety. This stone helps set you free yourself of any self-defeating behavior.
Sodalite - brings order and calmness to the mind. It encourages rational thought, objectivity and truth, along with verbalisation of feelings.
Amethyst - a natural tranquilliser, it relieves stress and strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, dispels anger, rage, fear and anxiety.
Wishing everyone a bountiful Full Moon of positive change and inner strength. Whatever you are working on is now, is getting an upgrade!
