Aquarius Full Moon & the Shadow Eclipse
by Maya White
Night by night the moon has been growing in the sky and Wednesday night/ Thursday morning, the moon peaks full in Aquarius.
A sign of social justice, Aquarius breaks down barriers. Many people incorrectly think that Aquarius is a water sign, but it’s actually a fixed air sign, and the 'Water Bearer' sign is pouring knowledge, not water, over humanity.
The full moon of August 18 is being described as the ‘almost lunar eclipse’ because it’s not visible from any place on the earth.
Because of this peculiarity, I think of it as a ‘shadowed eclipse’. A lunar eclipse addresses what you are learning, and it relates to events created through your own thoughts and feelings.
This shadowed eclipse is just out of view from the earth; you cannot see it, but you might feel it.
Also, the karmic north and south, which must be near the Sun and Moon in a full eclipse, are still in Virgo/Pisces, not with the Sun and Moon which are in Leo and Aquarius.
The nodes are markers of life purpose and potential, so they’re very important in astrology. The nodes are paired up with Venus and Neptune at this time; Venus conjuncts the north node, and Neptune conjunct the south node.
Think of the south node conjunct Neptune as a repository of karma; the saying ‘you reap what you sow’ is especially poignant for this weeks’ shadow eclipse.
But, there is also an opportunity for monumental progress because the north node conjunct Venus cultivates spiritual growth.
The north node conjunct Venus also develops the self-confidence required for personal love, and the Aquarius full moon inspires your fulfilled soul to love all of humanity.
Experience and celebrate Divine Love as this Aquarius full moon illuminates the path of Heart, Wisdom, and Understanding.
Peace One Earth
Wishing you an awakened full moon. Keep your hopes and wishes alive and feed your dreams with a breath of fresh air and persistence.
May you awaken and channel the power of a fulfilled and self-realized life and may we all find a unifying core of truth that feeds the Light of love on the earth.
Love and Blessings,
