This Friday, July 27th we have a Total Lunar Eclipse and a Full Moon which brings around some powerful energy, an energy that is bound to make us all feel a little crazy at some point this week.
A Total Lunar Eclipse is when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are in exact alignment, the Full Moon is when the Moon is at its climax in its cycle and is also known as the perfect time for manifesting and releasing. This particular eclipse is going to occur for nearly two hours which makes it the longest we have expereinced in a century! It can also be argued that this Moon is the most supercharged as well in terms of energetic ability – meaning it will bring conflicts in your life to a head and represent a turning point for most people.
This Full Moon is not only powerful because of the eclipse but because it is accompanied by five planets in retrograde. Mercury goes retrograde Thursday the 26th, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and Neptune have all been in retrograde for a month or so now. When multiple planets are in retrograde like they are now various areas of your life will feel strained, you may get turned down, or meet some unforeseen obstacles throughout the retrograde period. A lot of people get frustrated with this but there is really a deeper lesson in there, retrogrades and the obstacles they bring are intended to get you to slow down and have a look at the bigger picture. Has any event occured recently (or in the past few months) that has made you dig really deep into your core values and beliefs? Are you being asked by these obstacles to change some kind of mindset or habit that is no longer serving you?
The retrogrades have been preparing us for this super-charged Full Moon, this is where we commit, let go of the past and what we have learnt was not serving us and sign a contract with ourselves to enter a new phase of life. A Rebirth.
The power of the Aquarius Moon alone is perfect for welcoming in change. Aquarius is the water bearer so this change won’t necessarily come easy but it is a weight that you are willing to carry in order for the benefit you know it will bring. The universe is asking you to take on more than you can handle, it is showing you that you CAN handle it. This moon, paired with the Leo Sun asks you to remember that you are the source of this change. If you are looking to better the world, it starts with yourself. If you are looking to become a better friend, partner, co-worker it begins with proper self-care and self-encouragement.
The effects of the Full Moon usually show up within 2 weeks, however, the eclipse makes these issues ones you will deal with and build on for about six months! So, if things don’t seem to go so well right away, you’ll be hit with second chances don you worry.
