JuLY 27th, 3:43 pm: Full Moon Total LUNAR ECLIPSE is in AQUARIUS
The dragonfly symbolizes change, transformation, and “lightness”/freedom. It signifies movement and flight, and when you pick the dragonfly card, as I did the other day, it can point to a need to steady the fluctuations of the mind and become more grounded, so that you can spread your wings and fly. What needs to be released or shifted (in perspective) in order for you to create that light and spacious feeling in your life? The heaviness of unresolved emotions from the past and negativity will drag you down and create toxicity in your mind and body, as well as in your environment, affecting those around you. You cannot “fly” with a ton of emotional baggage on your back.
The build up to this full moon lunar eclipse in Aquarius may have been an intense one. Emotions, old patterns, and toxicity are ready to be released. Because Mars retrograde is hanging with this full moon lunar eclipse, there may be issues of repressed anger coming to the surface. Lilith, sometimes referred to as the “black moon,” is riding along with Mars, symbolizing the shadow side of one’s personality and the tendency to project deep issues/pain onto others. If you find yourself “pointing fingers,” try and take a step back and look at the situation from a wider angle. Even if you feel others are to blame, what are small steps you can take in this moment to make the situation better? The collective Sun (what we want) is asking us to act with honesty and integrity, i.e., to take the high road. I love the Michelle Obama quote: “When they go low we go high.” It is simple yet profound because it reminds us that we have a choice in terms of how we respond to stressors and negativity.
This full moon asks if there are ways that you have betrayed yourself in order to go along with the group mentality. The sun in Leo wants you to share your gifts/creativity with others yet this need to share is connected to where you have been wounded, so it can be a tricky path to navigate; ultimately, this is a time of healing old wounds so you can free up your creative energy and live a fuller and free-er life.
Relationships may be going through an overhaul with deep issues coming to the surface to be released; this is not an easy process, yet the end result is to clear out old patterns in relationships that drag you down and away from your truth and authenticity, so that you can create a feeling of freedom in your life. There is also an air of unpredictability in relationships now with Juno and Uranus spending time together in the sky. Juno is about issues of fairness and unfairness in relationships, as well as commitment, while Uranus rebels against rules and likes to shake things up.
With so much intensity in the air, take it easy and ‘lay low’ today if possible. Do whatever you can to take care of and nourish yourself: eat well, exercise/yoga, take a walk, get to sleep early, etc. Eclipses can bring big changes; this is the 2nd one of this month and we have one more coming up in the beginning of August. It may be a topsy turvy ride at times, but hold on, take deep breaths, and enjoy the moment as best you can: life is short and most of our life dramas aren’t as serious as we think they are in the moment. Gratitude is the antidote for negativity and heaviness.
