This is the *mid-point* (6-month mark) from whatever you got going at the February 2013/Aquarius Gate of Power. Do you remember "Crossing Borders" 6-months or 1-year ago? (many of you got those readings 6-mo ago, refer back to them now for new insights). This lunation includes TWO Full Moons in Aquarius, which also facilitates the lunar FLIP (new moon will now precede full moon), changing the rhythm of our daily lives and how we co-create our reality.
Leo/Aquarius represents the highest potential for humans and humanity; their energies represent the electro-magnetic connection of the *Heart* ~ linking all life to the core of Mother Earth, as well as all the way out to our protective shield surrounding the planet. See how the heart IS the connection between personal & global? Aquarius has to integrate the self-love lesson of Leo, in order to make its unique contribution to the community and reminds you to think outside the box(Aquarius/Uranus) & follow your heart (Leo/Sun) for the betterment of all. We need both. We are both. We have both in our charts somewhere.
At this time of immense & powerful shifts, we can only do our individual work (being heart-centered & connected to source energy) because THAT IS our primary contribution to the collective work (honoring the planet & the heartbeat that links all life).We are still basking in the glow of the first Aquarius Super-Full Moon (7/22) as I write this (7/23). This is the culmination of the work you initiated with the Aquarius New Moon (2/10) which was the same day this Year of the Black Water Snake began & Mercury had just hit Pisces in preparation for that first Retrograde.
Now, 6-months later, and following the second Mercury Retro through Cancer, consider the following questions:
•What were you going thru then? (Jan-Feb-Mar 2013) as it relates to now (July-Aug-Sept) ..
•Who you were/are, your sense of Self and belonging within your community?
•What were you creating?
•How were you opening up to a new level of existence?
•How was your love life? friendships? activities within the community?
•What was JUST beginning to be ignited within you?
•Did you make the connection that you needed to start living a more heart-centered life?
•Were you fired up about some new direction your life was taking?
•How is the second decade of the new millennium kicking off for you?
•... NOW ... How are things shifting and changing in your life TODAY?
Theoretically, the Cancer/Capricorn lunation has helped you with the *fundamentals* of life and here comes the Last Qtr Moon in Taurus (7/29) asking what we will cultivate this week. July brings a major *Turning Point* in the year (2013) and adding huge energy to that, is Jupiter in Cancer for the first time in 12-years. What have you consolidated? What have you expanded? What is strong and stable? What is weak and needs more time and attention? This week brings the work of closure on some past issues, while also setting the tone for moving forward *Heart-Centered* and dedicated to being more *Natural* (not normal) in your life and daily affairs.
The Taurus Last Qtr Moon (7/29) brings strength and determination to your Cancer New Moon (7/8) intentions ... and it is clearing the way for your Leo New Moon (8/6) intentions of next week. What truly has to be released or finished in order for your inner Light to shine brightly? ... for you to feel *Love*?
*Leo New Moon (8/6) may be just what the doctor ordered ... to *Lighten* UP - literally, infuse your Self with Light! Get creative, have some fun and dig in to anything that is weighing on you and find a NEW way to express it, by shining a brighter light on it. This is the annual New Moon of the New YOU! The world is shifting at such a rapid pace that I feel it is more imperative than ever to know your own *Heart*. Many of us have lived our lives guided by "survival" rather than what is truly in our hearts. And we have discovered, either directly or from observing others, how this can backfire. It's time to use your heart as the electro-magnetic guiding compass it was designed to be and honor the unique light it sparks within YOU.
This First Qtr Moon (8/14) is going to push you to dive even deeper in to your *Heart of Hearts* and confront you with that which YOU have created with your energy and focus, for better or worse. Scorpio Moon always takes us to Soul Level, but add First Qtr "action" to the equation and you have *karma* in the making. Best to use this energy as a "Discovery Mission" (which is exploratory in nature) because much of what is discovered at this time will be subject to interpretation as the energies shift throughout the month. Use this Lunation to dig deep within your own Soul (Scorpio) to determine what is worthy (Leo) of your focus (Aquarius) and discipline (Taurus).
What have you become "too" attached to? And/or what have you become "too" detached from (and need to reconnect)? We have spent recent months navigating the Mutable energy of thought and ideas (Gemini), along with the Cardinal energy of action and choices (Cancer, whose theme continues) but now the energy has become decidedly Fixed and it is time to anchor something ... in your heart (Leo). What ideas have you gotten going that need some tending to make stronger, more viable?
This second Aquarius Full Moon (8/20) may bring up revelations of when, where and with whom (mostly Self) you have not been completely (if at all) authentic. Start with the *motivations* ~ if/when they are pure/clean/neutral, then being authentic becomes less challenging. But if/when your motivations are based in power (manipulation) or control (fear) then you will never acquire the satisfaction you claim (to the Universe) to be seeking/seeking to create or experience. The ultimate blessing is to actually BE CONSCIOUS THROUGH these incredible shifting times! To recognize where you are & that changes is constant (whether we like it or not) so decide how you want to contribute to this particular evolution. How can you co-create with this energy for you, the individual, and how can your creation (contribution) serve the planet/all life? Big questions ~ Small singular answer: HEART.
