Full Moon Eclipse in Aquarius
There’s an energy purge going on with this Full Moon Eclipse. It may be as big as a volcano or perhaps you will just have rumbles; but we are all getting rid of something. We are letting go of a wide variety of things. Things being tossed could include emotions, bad habits, or old dreams that no longer apply. We are making room on a specific energy level to allow space for healing. Let’s harness this energy to help heal our wounds as a country, wounds in our communities, family wounds and personal wounds. Let’s allow for this transformation to help us propel towards a healthier future.
I have returned to the East Coast – my maternal coast. The part of my history that centers around my mother’s family and my mother wound. Eight months ago I didn’t think I would ever make this trip again, and yet, here I am. It’s been surprisingly easy and healing. I am having conversations that I never thought I would ever be able to have and experience an ease around them. I see things so differently now after the last six months of healing. I’m here with a new energy. I am no longer rushing through my emotions or hiding them. I feel relaxed in my skin for the first time ever. Sickness will do that to a person. It can bring them to a place where there is no choice but to truly be yourself in whatever form that takes. That’s how I see this Full Moon energy manifesting. We are being asked to truly be ourselves in a place in our lives, in whatever form that takes. It could be explosive if that is what is needed or it could be a small rumble; noticeable but also quick and light. We are making room for our desires to step forward.
The heat of this region is comforting. Heat so thick it sinks into the bones. I find it healing and even soothing. It becomes part of you. It’s one of those things you don’t realize you miss until you come back after time away and you are reminded of the Joy and Dreams that were born in this air. Born in this humidity and heat.
I walk late at night to avoid the sting of the sun. It’s the time of lighting bugs, which appear in the early evening and disappear into the deep night. It’s quiet and the only sounds are bugs and the breeze. I walk to heal my body. I walk to release the heat of the day. I walk because it helps balance my emotions. I walk to talk to La Luna and tell her of what I’m ready to let go of and what I would like in it’s place. I talk about realities of my earthly world. Family members you never could imagine living without, suddenly taken ill in a way that requires help and an eventual good bye combined with baby showers and family birthdays. I marvel at the circular reality of life.
What phase of the cycle are you in? Is it an explosion or a small rumble? Are you witnessing both the endings and the beginnings? Noticing the space where we experience all phases of the life cycle just like we notice and experience the Moon cycle. What needs your attention right now?
Ritual for a Full Moon Eclipse
While we are still in retrograde and with Eclipse season happening, let’s continue to rest and take care of ourselves. Can we slow down enough this week to notice what we are truly feeling? How can we notice our memories and process them? There is so much power in our stories, how can we use that power to move forward? I suggest spending some time walking this week; enjoying the slower pace of a nice evening walk. Notice the details of not only what you are seeing, but also, what you are feeling. Does this walk remind you of being younger and going to visit friends after school? Does the walk help you to remember the time you lived in a big city and walked everywhere? Do you think of the two neighborhood couples that used to meet every night in the early evening and walk together? The wives in front, chatting away while the husbands were behind them talking about the days events. What comes up from this Ritual walk? Write down your feelings; all of them that you might have. From resistance of doing such a simple ritual to excitement over how good it feels to be outside walking. Notice where your mind goes during this event. Notice where your cellular memory takes you.
Because so many planets are in retrograde, we don’t want to push our agenda yet. It would be futile at the moment. We need to use this time to take a break, process what needs to come up and to let go. Use this week to get out in Nature. To hear nothing but the birds and the breeze. Move your body to release and process. After your walk, enjoy a good book and glass of wine while allowing your body and mind a break. Work on being so present that you could fill a whole page in your journal about how you feel, right in this moment. Take a breath and relax.
