There are times on our path when we’ve outgrown the way we’ve been living—beliefs, stories, debt, sickness, jobs, partners, places, friends.
At times, we kindly receive glimpses of the new timeline.
For some of us, a crash, a crisis, a lightning bolt revelation shows us it’s time to let go…and hang on… because a new path is unfolding–a greener pasture, some bluer skies, a new set of friends, a soulmate reunion, a great big burst of creative inspiration, a career-defining opportunity, a deeper connection with the Divine.
But how do we cross over to the new space
we feel in our hearts to be truer than what we’re living now?
May I introduce you to the Full Moon in Aquarius (I’m sure you’ve all been feeling Her) lighting up our lives on July 27 at 2:20 MST accompanied by an intensely illuminating partner—a Total Lunar Eclipse—the longest one we’ve had in a long time.
Both will masterfully go straight to the heart of any matter that has been buried (unknowingly or deliberately) and break open streams of light that will raise our individual and planetary consciousness.
We may feel massively uncomfortable at times and for a while.
This break and this light will create some sacred medicine and some profound transformation, however. And while a Full Moon may affect us for a few days before and after, an Eclipse’s deep waves of change will ebb and flow for several months.
Moving through Aquarius, the Moon and this Eclipse have some keys to where their Helping Hand will be offered.
If we choose, we can reach out our own hand to receive their support.
And we might want to.
Aquarius energy moves fast—it’s the Creative Genius, the Electron, the Free Radical of Love.
We may be struck by big ideas and huge inspiration; feel the need to shake things up and call things off; pull people close one moment and push them away the next; break out on our own or be pushed out the door; believe I’ve got this and then see how quickly life spins out of our control—all Aquarian themes.
As an air sign, Aquarius focuses on ideas, inspiration, transformation and movement, rather than big displays of emotion (after all the Scientist, the Rebel and the Revolutionary have big work to do).
However, the Full Moon and the Lunar Eclipse will penetrate and push you to feel what you need to so the old that no longer serves forever rests in peace.
No one’s personal Aquarius Revolution will go well if it is solely based on logic or a plan borne from fear, arrogance, greed, selfishness, aggression or control.
Instead, we’ll be called to access our Higher Mind and the Wisdom Heart, so we can learn how to navigate the changes we know we’re being summoned within to make.
Aquarius in its higher expression seeks to create from a higher octave of love, in integrity, in heart-centered wisdom, in creative freedom, in joyful service.
The Aquarian call is a Revolution of Love that has us shining bright individually in a way that’s present to and serves what the collective needs right now.
We might ask of our communities, our oceans, our forests, our skies,
our global family, the Universe, or the God of our understanding,
WHAT DO YOU NEED NOW?
We’re asking, we’re listening and we’re committed to action.
More love? I agree. Compassionate, wise leadership? Let my inner wisdom and compassion shine. Deeper support for children? Let’s do that. A stronger, courageous voice? I’m learning to sing at the top of my lungs. More pauses, more silence? On it. More prayer? Already on my knees.
When we embody the Aquarian spirit, mindset and action of the Friend and the Humanitarian, we’ll do what needs to be done to rise above any selfish desires that do not nourish our soul or the soul of the world.
Growth over complacency and comfort. Expansion over a restrictive status quo.
How are you not in your freedom right now, my friend?
What’s the Inner Revolution needing to take place?
In the quietest, deepest of ways, call on the wisdom, the messages and the inner activations (in the form of ideas, qualities such as courage, wisdom, inspiration, a download of higher energies) that the Aquarian Full Moon and the total Lunar Eclipse have for you.
And while we seek the true call of Freedom to clean things up, we need a hand—and some humility. We’re not going to do this alone.
To this end, seek out your tribe, your friends, well-intentioned groups and collectives as well as mentors on this plane and beyond if you need support.
If you feel alone, as an Aquarian Moon can sometimes highlight, continue to love yourself and delight in your unique gifts, knowing that you will find your way and the people who will love and delight in your gifts too.
We are not meant to live this life alone.
There was once a woman who believed that she was not loved. And as she went through her experience, her choices manifested to prove that that was true. And one day, when she realized that all of her life had been without form in love and that there had been no love, she chose, for a moment, to see herself as the God she knew was there somewhere might see her. And the reflection that came to her was one so beautiful that she realized once and for all that the only one who was not loving her was her. And she became free in that moment to embody as love. ~Paul Selig
Call on the tools and the mindset of the Revolutionary, the Humanitarian, the Alchemist, the Creative Genius, and the Free Radical to change what needs to be changed once and for all so that you can end needless suffering and show others, “Yes, if I can do it, you can too.”
And in learning how to identify and respond to our own needs, we are reminded to give others the same room to grow, for they have lessons to learn, things they must break free of and their lives to create anew—just like you. If you squeeze too tight, cling too hard, and worry too much, you’ve stepped into a shadow expression of Aquarian energy where your way is the only way.
“There are a hundred ways to kneel and kiss the ground.” (Rumi)
We’re in a great, intense, painful, beautiful time of Awakening in an Ocean of Rebirth and instead of drowning in the confusion and the chaos of our mind and our emotions, we find strength in knowing that we all chose to be here as the Free Radicals of Beauty, the Keepers of the Light, the Eccentrics for Change and the Revolutionaries for Love.
My hand in your hand,
