Full blue moon in Aquarius

The full moon in Aquarius that occurs on the 22nd of August is the second full moon to occur in the sign of Aquarius, making this moon a true blue moon. This energy, coming right off the back of the Uranus stationing retrograde and a potent month with the Leo new moon and Lionsgate portal. It is important to note that this moon will also be bringing back to the surface things that we did not face or work through in the first full moon that occured in July – you can find the blog for that one here.

The energy of this moon feels more free for all in some ways, with an anything can happen flare especially with that Uranus retrograde energy at the same time. Full moons in general are great times to release something, bring more insight and awareness to something you are working with or to tune into your higher self for downloads and information. This is the time of completion in the moon cycle – what was started at the new moon (in Leo which you can find the blog for that one here and how you have worked with the energy.

As we move out of the full moons influence into the waning moon, this is when we adjust, release and prepare for the new intentions, tweaks and goals for the next new moon. Aquarius energy asks us to think about the big picture, long term and how our energy influences humanity. This is also a potent energy to work on your hopes and dreams.

Is there something in your life that you have been trying to achieve? this is the time to release anything that is hindering you, be it mindsets, connections, habits etc and to realign yourself with your goals. As we shift from Leo season into Virgo season at this time, we are letting go of that slower, relaxing energy of the feline Leo and moving into a more grounded and structured energy of Virgo.

This is the perfect time to reflect on your daily habits, routines and health in conjuction with your goals and dreams that you wish to achieve as the combination of Aquarius and Virgo energy at this time can help you to release bad habits and begin new ones that will benefit you long term. There is a strong need to bring balance back into our lives right now between the spiritual and physical, action and inaction. There is a caution here to not be too critical on yourself though and take this time to forgive yourself and others to release any stagnant karmic energy and make way for something new.

If there was one mantra to keep in mind at this time it is release, release, release. Release what no longer serves, release attachments and the need to control, focus on where you want to go moving forward and how you can begin the next steps to get there. If you want to go deeper into the spiritual messages from this energy you can watch the full moon in Aquarius tarot reading here. Have a wonderful full moon everyone!

New Moon in Leo & lionsgate portal

This Leo new moon is occuring at the same time as the Lionsgate 8/8 portal and during the shadow period of Uranus going retrograde… talk about intense energy to say the least! The liongate portal occurs each year when Sirius aligns with the sun and is associated with spiritual activiations and downloads and from a mythological aspect there is a strong connection to the Goddess Isis and Osiris as Sirius is known as the Star of Isis and Orion is Osiris. This time was the Egyptian New Year and the time of the Nile rising bringing with it fertility and renewal. You can watch the in depth video for this energy here:

This Leo moon is the perfect one to instill us with a sense of confidence to go after our dream life! With those potent downloads from Sirius and the Sun – Leos ruler and this new moon occuring close to the planet of communication and wisdom, Mercury, who is aligned with expansive and luck bringing Jupiter – what ever you set out to achieve this new moon holds a lot of potential to be the life changing seeds we have been dreaming about.

It is important to note that there is a tense interaction between Saturn and Uranus playing out at this time and these two planets may make us feel impatient and impulsive, Saturn is asking us to think about the long term and ensure we are not just acting from the ego.

This Leo energy is perfect for those bold, romatic gestures or to relax and have fun in a social sense. You may also feel more creative at this time and your inner child will want to play – allow yourself some indulgence during this time.

There is a caution to look out for ego clashes at this time and with Saturn and Uranus in the mix if you have a disagreement with someone, try to take a step back and not engage in a stand off or argument as neither side will be able to see past their own feelings.

There may be a tendancy to want to engage in drama more or to lay about instead of getting on with things – this is key to find a good balance between work and play especially as this new moon begins a new 6 month cycle. Spend some time pampering yourself but also stick to some kind of routine to ensure you get the basic chores and necessary tasks complete so they dont pile up and become a mountainous task later.

Above all else this is a potent time to reflect and plant the seeds for your future and the goals and dreams you wish to manifest especially for those who wish to launch a creative project or be in the spotlight in some way. You can find the tarot reading for this new moon here:

Happy new moon in Leo everyone! May all your dreams come true xo

Full moon in Aquarius

This full moon in Aquarius will feel like a mixed emotional one as it is caught between Pluto and Saturn. The energy may feel a little harder than normal and this is the perfect time to continue with the self care routines you began during the emotional Cancer new moon at the beginning of the month. This full moon is the perfect one to release attachments, forgive and let go of what is no longer serving you whilst focusing on building stronger spiritual routines and connecting with your higher self.

Mercury will be super active during this time and harmonising with Neptune, further enhancing the spirituality of this full moon and activities such as yoga, meditation, chanting and journaling will be very beneficial.

The general energy of the collective will feel more social and humanitarian, ideas related to the whole will come to the forefront such as politics, human rights, environment and a general want to socialise however it will not be particularly intimate so it is best to avoid having those deep and meaningful conversations at this time.

This is an analytical moon where we will be more prone to looking at our place in our community, family and social groups and how these too have an affect on our own life. We can be more capable of working in harmony with others at this time but can also become more stubborn about our opinions and theories.

In the romance department this is a time to keep things light hearted and fun, socialise with each other’s friendship groups to gain more insight into each other or ask broader questions such as topics such as politics, spiritual path, hopes and dreams etc but do not engage in conflict about who is right or wrong.

This is a great time to network, reach out to new clients and new communities. Join a new yoga class or have a coffee or lunch date with co-workers. Team Building exercises are great within the work environment or hiring a new staff member. This is the ideal time to pitch new ideas, campaign socialise over dinner or attend trivia nights.

This energy encourages us to live by our inner philosophy and morals, perhaps to re-establish new ones and share ideas with others – be cautious not to tell others they are wrong however. We are more open minded at this time and curious about new perspectives and ideas.

Watch out for being too disconnected to the world around you and your connections to others, a feeling of righteousness and getting too caught up in our own philosophy, remembering to have empathy towards others and their beliefs, being too challenging on debating beliefs or opinions, looking too far into the future that we fail to see the present moment including any hurt feelings, needs and excitement of yourself and others around us and being too experimental – don’t throw the baby out with the bath water!
