In Pagan tradition, this moon is known as the Full Buck Moon; the time of year when the antlers of a buck deer are in full growth. It is also known as the Thunder Moon, the Blessing Moon, the Meadow Moon and the Wort Moon (wort is an ancient word meaning all herbaceous plants or herbs, which are ready for harvest in July to the
delight of all us herbalists!).
Astrologers have determined that every two thousand years, time moves us backward through the astrological signs, into a new age. A New age calls for its own words to live by. Yogi Bhajan, of Kundalini Yoga and spiritual teacher to thousands, shared five principles which he called the Five Sutras of the Aquarian Age.
1. Recognize that the other person is you.
2. There is a way through every block.
3. When the time is on you, start, and the pressure will be off.
4. Understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times.
5. Vibrate the Cosmos. The Cosmos shall clear the path.
The first of an ultra-rare pair of back-to-back Aquarius full moons is just what we need to forge a path to living and speaking our truth…t0 stand and march to the beat of our own drum. Aquarians are the seekers, visionaries, the non-conformists, the ones who get away with stuff because they are so easy to live with. Face it, moonbeams, it’s their AGE, we just live in it! Those old Aquarian vibes will remind us that we are part of something larger than ourselves, and that acting on our ideas and ideals will benefit everyone.
Under the full moon Luna is at her brightest, most magnificent lamination. She has been gathering the light since the New Moon. The seeds that were planted then are now ready to sprout…those big juicy dreams of a stable foundation within yourself and in your community of magical souls. We now have 2 rebellious moons working in harmony to inspire us to find new ways to deal with the challenges facing our world.
So, as you dance in the flurry of all this moon power take time to reflect on what it brings for you. Get outside and let the light of the moon shine upon you. Then, bring your attention back to what you want to manifest with the moon. What needs to shift for you to bring your goal to fruition?
