Welcome to Eclipse Season – Rising Intensity and The Drive for Personal Expression
Welcome to the second Eclipse Season of 2017.
Full Moon’s tend to raise the level of intensity and eclipses can raise that intensity to a whole new level.
This Full Moon falls in Aquarius with the Moon sitting conjunct the South Node indicating that you may be asked to become aware of some emotional patterns this week that you need to release to move forwards.
With Mars and The Sun conjunct The North Node, the drive to be yourself and to express your unique essence is likely to be strong.
Are you taking steps to play your part and to share the gift of who you are with the rest of humanity or are you meeting resistance?
With Saturn ((as dispositor of this Full Moon) conjunct the Black Moon in Sagittarius and trine to the Sun being true to yourself and seeking freedom is likely going to be important.
Independence, Freedom and Evolution
Aquarian energy is incredibly independent; often associated with the revolutionary and the humanitarian.
The unique, out-there reformer, who can see a new way long before his or her peers.
Aquarius energy loves humankind and seeks to bring forth change in the name of evolution and love.
Pouring forth gifts of expansion and awakening, Aquarius energy truly appreciates the interconnectedness of life.
Therefore, don’t be surprised if you find yourself seeking greater independence, feeling impassioned about a movement or cause or connecting with a need to break out at this Full Moon.
Possible Relationship Friction
Bernadette Brady describes a possible expression of this eclipse as: “Unexpected events involving friends or groups place a great deal of pressure on personal relationships. The individual would be wise not to make any hasty decisions since information is distorted and possibly false”.
The stronger the effect of this eclipse within your own personal natal chart the stronger the effect in your life, so remember to see below for where this particular one is falling.
The opposition between Mercury and Neptune could certainly be throwing some fog around, so ensure you really do know the real facts before reacting.
With Jupiter in Libra trine the Moon, which is sitting on the South Node, it’s probably wise to see such relationship pressures as a chance to grow.
Aquarian energy can bring detachment, so remaining centred and bringing in some of that Libran diplomacy could be the way forward.
Remain Conscious of Illuminated Patterns
Saturn’s square to Chiron indicates that low self worth and/or feelings of inadequacy could be arising now.
Full Moons tend to illuminate negativity and unconscious behaviours; more so eclipses.
Do you or does someone else need to acknowledge how the fear of rejection, isolation or of not being enough could be playing a part?
Is it time to release negative emotional patterns that may be holding you back from shining your light?
Potential For Increased Tiredness/Health Issues
Brady also predicts possible health issues or tiredness, so look after yourself and make sure that you’re having enough sleep in the build up to this Full Moon and over the following 6 months.
With Neptune inconjunct the Sun/Mars conjunction there’s certainly potential for feeling a little less driven.
Giving Neptune ‘something to do’; such as engaging the spiritual and artistic aspects of life can work wonders at these times.
Meditation, Yoga, Art, Music… could all help you to feel back in the flow.
If you’ve not been taking steps to look after your health then perhaps now is the time to acknowledge that and to begin to engage in activities that enrich you Mind, Body and Spirit.
Diet plays a huge role in health. How is yours nourishing you?
Do you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and feed your body with the rainbow of vibrant colours (not nasty synthetic ones)?
Do you listen when your body grumbles after you ingest certain foods or do you continue to eat them despite the discomfort?
As someone who has given up lots of foods over the last 7 years, I can tell you that the initial pain is most definitely worth it.
I no longer eat dairy, wheat, caffeine, meat or fish and I’ve never felt better.
The effect that a bad diet can have on your emotional, physical and mental self is huge.
This ones for the Misfits, the Lightworkers and the Renegades
Yes, it can be lonely when you’re called to stand out from the crowd; especially when others don’t seem to understand you (or even appear to try to) and this Full Moon could certainly highlight some of that.
If your role during this lifetime is to help lead the way to a brighter future then you don’t need anyone’s acceptance or validation to do that.
Finding your soul family when your birth family just doesn’t ‘get you’ can be a beautiful experience.
Look for groups of like minded people, give yourself an extra dose of love and remember that you are always surrounded by the love of spirit.
Nature can also prove incredibly healing. I may not always understand humans, but trees are pure love.
A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself-and especially to feel, or not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at any moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is.”
– Jim Morrison
Which area of your life is likely to be affected by this Full Moon/Eclipse?
Where does this Full Moon fall within your natal chart?
If you’re unsure of how to find this and would like help with understanding your natal chart, you can sign up for my newsletter and receive my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness” for free.
Look for 15 degrees and 25 seconds of Aquarius (The Moon), and 15degrees and 25 seconds of Leo (The Sun).
Which house axis (areas of life) is being highlighted in your chart?
Are there any planets, which fall at (or very close to) 15degrees within your natal chart?
Those situated between 13 and 17 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) and also Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces are likely to add more to the picture.
I also offer a 12-month subscription to my Lunar Illuminations.
These alerts are a great way to track your intention setting and to tune into your own emotional ebb and flow as the Moon moves through her eight phases each month.
The Full Moon will exact on 8th August 2017 at 04:11am (AEST, GMT +10)
Wishing you love, illumination and growth as you move towards a more expansive version of you.
Much Love, Toria xo
