“The full moon...the mandala of the sky”~tom robbins
August is the 8th month of the year, and in both astrology and numerology, the number 8 is all about rebirth and transformation. It’s no secret that we’re smack dab in the middle of some pretty big transformational shifts.
June ushered in the first in a trio of Supermoons, and on August 11 (9:36pm et/6:36pm pt) we will see that last Full/Supermoon of the year rising in the unconventional, revolutionary sign of Aquarius. And, lovelies, that Aquarian vibe is just what we need right now to bring clarity into our lives…still intent on forging the path to a place where we are One Planet, One Human Family, One Living & Breathing Being.
Be prepared…the demands for change, civil rights and liberation, will definitely get louder now. Uranus and Saturn co rule the sign of Aquarius. Saturn, the planet of karma and Uranus, the planet of rebellion and change, pretty well guarantee a strong focus on out of the box thinking this month. And just to solidify all things astrological, Aquarius is the ruler of the eleventh house, the area that pertains to friends, community and groups...idealism and freedom from old values and beliefs.
On this most important month exchanging magickal energy with the moon can help dreams become reality. Crystals and oils can aid on the journey. Tap into that third eye with sodalite or amethyst and stay grounded with red jasper or smoky quartz. Frankincense will deepen the breath and open the 3rd eye, wild orange will uplift your spirit and release old patterns and, last, but not least, my favorite of all, Vetiver, to help you remain rooted, grounded, and open your heart.
Tomorrow as the full moon rises, I will stand at the shore of the sea and draw Her power directly into me. When you open your heart and mind something mystical happens as you hear your truth. The water bearer reminds one to stay grounded as she waters the soul and humanity as a whole. You're as luminous as the moon. As powerful as the water bearer. May we continue to inspire and be inspired. May we walk together in our resilience and magick. Enchanting and mysterious, under the Full Moon, we embody it all.
