The second Full Moon in Aquarius of the year arrives–and it is quite magical. The Full Moon in Aquarius last month gave us the opportunity to fly our monster flags high as we went knee-deep in our uniqueness. This time around, the full moon asks us to double our increase by increasing anything that gets in our way. Are you ready?
The full moon occurs every 28 days when the sun and moon face 180 degrees. In Astrology, when the Sun (the source of our identity, conscious actions and ego) and the Moon (the ruler of our emotions, habits, needs and unconscious reactions) appear in this aspect or configuration, we are challenged to unearth something of our own. unconscious, illuminate it and integrate it into our being.
As the Sun travels through the zodiac throughout the year, we can address different areas of our lives to move towards a more holistic emotional and spiritual evolution. For some very special years, we focused on one area that needs a little more attention, and this year, it turns out it’s Aquarius. The last time we had this much full moon energy from Aquarius was in 2013. This time, Jupiter is lighting up the full moon with its power of magnification and expansion. So whatever came your way last month, this full moon can push you to redouble your work in your inner world with a flashlight and journal until you find the light switch to light things up.
The full moon is a time to clean and clear, but you must be ready to let the light in.
Speaking of digging deeper, journaling during a full moon is a great way to extract some learnings from your unconscious mind. You can start with a message like “What has been weighing on my mind recently” and let your writing take you on an exploration journey to get to the core of whatever it is that has been dragging your energy down. Another idea is to imagine a conversation between you and the moon, asking her to share her messages from this glorious full moon.
Afterward, you may even want to try a ritual meditation bath to further integrate whatever comes up. The full moon is a time to clean and brighten, but you must be ready to let in the light. Think of it this way: if you are proactive in entering armed with your flashlight and curiosity, you can prevent the universe from smashing into your windows to let in light. Beat the punch and take control of the narrative!
Speaking of breaking windows, don’t worry, this full moon should be pretty tame. Late Scorpio, early Capricorn, late Taurus, early Gemini, late Leo, and early Virgo can feel this full moon more intensely. If you are one of these signs, be sure to set aside time for self-reflection, as you may discover some powerful epiphanies.
For everyone else, find a little time to have a private dance party or a little fun. Enjoy the presence of Jupiter and let it expand your appreciation of all that makes you special! No matter what your sign is, remember to take out your favorite smudge stick and let the holy smoke reach every corner of your abode. The best time to clear will always be when you think you don’t need it, especially on a full moon.
