MESSAGE FROM HEATHER:
Hello everyone from steaming hot Florida!
Hope you enjoy these thoughts on the powerful upcoming Full Moon.
With Love and Light,
Aquarius Full Moon … August 1-2, 2012
With the Full Moon in Aquarius (Sun in Leo), the spotlight is on our personal and social destiny. Where are we ready to contribute our gifts for the benefit of humanity? We are called, at this crucial time on Planet Earth, to embrace and demonstrate the principles of Brotherhood and Love in our lives. Our Aquarius energy understands our connection with all people, our oneness with all life.
“We are all cells in the same body of humanity.” Peace Pilgrim
The Sun in Leo illuminates what needs to take center stage in our lives. It stimulates the memory of the role we chose to play in this cosmic drama. We are asked to be true to our spirit within, our divine essence, to follow our bliss. We are not alone. There are many who share our ideals and dreams. It is time to come together as a global family, to express our heart-felt collective visions and highest humanitarian ideals. Now is the time to face any dragons of fear that may be holding us back.
“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.’ Marianne Williamson
Aquariusis the man with the watering pot, the harbinger of the Light. In very old illustrations, Aquarius is symbolized by the angel with an urn of water. The contents of the urn signify the super-conscious source of wisdom to be shared with humanity. This Full Moon in the sign of the Water-Bearer brings a new infusion of Light that is pouring from the watering pot to uplift the consciousness of all people as we enter the New Age.
“See the nations walking together as brothers in the sunlight… This is the way to restore the peace on earth.” White Eagle
The traditional ruler of Aquarius is Saturn and the modern ruler, Uranus. The glyph of Aquarius depicts the two serpents of wisdom.The upper represents the intuitive mind which reflects the light and truth of the great concepts of universal consciousness (Uranus) onto the rational serpent below (Saturn), to make them usable on the earth plane. The electrical energy of Uranus uproots any structures (Saturn) that no longer serve the greater good, tossing out old, outmoded concepts and incorporating more progressive ideals, personally and collectively.
The glyph of Aquarius also symbolizes the sending out of information, telepathically, through the airwaves and through intuitive flashes of illumination and revelation. Aquarius rules invention, high technology, innovative and original ideas. It rules tools of divination such as astrology, numerology, the tarot and I Ching. All these gifts of the Water-Bearer will be used for the good of all mankind in the New Age of Aquarius.
Where the Moon at 11 degrees Aquarius falls in our charts we are called upon to be agents of change and to contribute to the evolution of humanity in some way. Aquarius represents the evolution of group consciousness. We are each an inseparable part of the web of life. It is important to find like-minded people for support and collaboration. Together we can promote our Aquarian ideals of equality, freedom and justice and create Heaven on Earth.
Where the Sun at 11 degrees Leo falls in our charts we can express our creative gifts for the greater good of all. Each of us carries a unique spark of the divine and a special role to play. What do we have to shine into the world? How can we promote the spirit of brotherhood and love on earth?
The huge waves of change continue to roll ashore. The volatile ongoing Uranus-Pluto square (90 degrees) reflects the enormous personal and global transformative changes taking place. Pluto turns the light on the underworld of our souls, and our financial and political systems. The message of Pluto is that we can run but no longer hide. Innovative Uranus seeks a more equitable distribution of goods.
“The bird who has eaten cannot fly with the bird that is hungry.” Omaha Indian proverb
Mercury stations direct on August 7th at 2 degrees Leo. Due to its retrograde motion, Mercury will have spent almost ten weeks in Leo, emphasizing the importance of listening to our hearts for direction. In these changing times it is vital to flow with the unexpected and to accept and follow the illumination we receive.
Every moment we are being given the chance to add to the Light of the World and to improve the quality of life for ourselves and all humanity. Using our creative spirit (Leo) to put into practice the law of brotherhood (Aquarius), we can break through society’s walls and move forward together to create a better life for everyone. It is time to allow our ideals of Brotherhood and Love to flow like the crystal clear water from the Aquarian watering pot, into the world!
The Sabian symbol for the Sun at 11 degrees Leo: “Children play on a swing hanging from the branches of a huge oak tree.”
The oak tree infers enormous strength and in England is referred to as the “Monarch of the Forest”. This suggests importance of creating supportive surroundings wherein we can express our true selves with authenticity and integrity, from our hearts.
“Happiness is the realization of God in our heart.” White Eagle
The Sabian symbol for the Moon at 11 degrees Aquarius: “Man tête-à-tête with his inspiration.”
As we close down the noisy rational mind, we can tune into the silence deep within our souls. Here we receive the inspiration we need to do our work of service to humanity.
“God is the friend of silence. See how nature … the trees, flowers, grass … grows in silence …. We need silence to be able to touch souls.” Mother Teresa
