AN AQUARIUS AFFIRMATION
“Allow me to spread the waters of the new age to every individual, giving each human being what he or she deserves, including myself.”
HARNESSING THE CELESTIAL POWER OF THE AQUARIUS FULL MOON
After what was a spectacular Aquarius full moon in July, we are yet again greeted by another Aquarius full moon this month, lighting up the sky at 10.01pm AEST on Sunday 22 August. Two consecutive full moons in the same zodiac sign are known as a blue moon, and only occurs every 33 months. What a gift! So, if you missed the innovative and humanitarian vibes that were transcending last month, you have another opportunity to bask in their heavenly goodness this time around! Be sure not to miss it!
Aquarius is a zodiac sign branded as being humanitarian and charitable. It is represented by the archetype of a revolutionary, and Aquarians are often known for their innovative, independent and out-of-the-box thinking. Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, which is known as ‘the awakener’ and is symbolic of revolution and change in the natal chart. Challenges for Aquarians is overcoming tendencies for rebellion, and detachment and distance in relationships.
So, what does this mean from a celestial standpoint?
Well, when the moon is in Aquarius, we may be more aware of social issues and have a desire to be heard. We may also be motivated by our intellect rather than our emotion and may find ourselves being increasingly detached from those that we love. So, with this in mind, use this time to place conscious thought on living from the heart. Take the time to be present when spending time with loved ones. Try to find balance between being all things to all people and having real relationships. Embrace your need to be your wackiest and rebellious self, and most importantly, your desire to do good things for the world. Go forth, move forward and be true to yourself! And do something that only you would testify as doing “once in a blue moon”!
