“The moon is at her full, and riding high,
Floods the calm fields with light.
The airs that hover in the summer sky
Are all asleep to-night.”
~William C. Bryant
Astrology | Full Moon in Aquarius
“Together we’ve been traveling through a particularly charged series of supermoons and lunar eclipses, beginning in February. The first full moon since the end of this phase, the August full moon is called the Sturgeon Moon because it coincides with abundant fish catches. It is also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon. This full moon will square Uranus in Taurus which only means one thing: EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED.
Sun and moon oppose one another in Leo and Aquarius: right brain vs left brain. Fixed oppositions summon proud, forceful reactions. This energy is also inherently empowering and liberating. Aquarius weaves us upon a great cosmic loom. Threaded and pressed, Leo’s individual colors fade blissfully into the rainbow.
The Leo sun represents childhood and self-expression. The full moon in Aquarius comes in like a dash of radical, inquisitive lightning. Aquarius emanates from the analytical frontal cortex; Leo operates from the heart. At this full moon, a dose of Aquarian rationale suffuses Leo’s impulsive, creative heart…
Let’s destroy old psychological boundaries and make space for healthier paradigms to emerge. Aquarius is synonymous with change and movement. He is the emancipator, the martyr, the uprising. Aquarius evaporates psychological binds, bonds, and tethers with a wink of his magic turquoise eyes. Don’t be afraid to make noise, be loud, turn up the volume. Aquarius is a non-conformist and spiritual liberator. Be daring.
Both Leo and Aquarius always need to be right. Leo believes firmly in himself: his generosity, his intentions, his narrative. The water bearer, on the other hand, lurches from the lectern, convinced his brilliance will revolutionize the world. Aquarius can be merciless when his intellect is in question, with piercing shades of anger disguised as objectivity.
Psychic and physical energy increase significantly at every full moon. This is felt not just the day of, but for days before and after. Emotions and intuition will be heightened. Non-reaction is the root of all journeys.”
Calcite | A great amplifier and cleanser, Calcite purifies the environment in which it resides. It facilitates a re-connection with one’s emotions, and opens to the higher self/psychic abilities. Also useful as a calming presence, Calcite helps us to let go of the past and look ahead to the future.
Ammonite | A fantastic stone for ‘delving deep’. Ammonite can assist: in searching the past to uncover the source of trauma, while simultaneously transmuting old emotions/patterns; in examining the mind and uncovering truths and connections within; in resolving issues by getting to the root of the problem. Think of the ‘flash’ as ‘flashes of insight’ and the spiral as a labyrinth leading the inward journey.
Garnet | Connecting with the Root Chakra, Garnet helps instill passion, courage and confidence. This connection also helps to ground one to the Earth, activating survival instincts and boundless energy. The geometry of this stone encourages harmony and sharpens perceptions.
Garnet is useful to have in a crisis, particularly in situations where there seems to be no way out or where life has fragmented. It fortifies, activates, and strengthens the survival instinct, bringing courage and hope into those situations. Crisis is turned into challenge under Garnet’s influence and promotes mutual assistance in times of trouble. [Hall, 136]
Garnet can act as a strong help to balance the energy system, stimulate desires and uplift your attitude. As a balancer stone, Garnet can prevent fears of insecurity and even money losses. They’re lucky stones: lucky for love, success, and for goals. Use Garnet to increase your positivity and popularity, thus enhancing your personal self-esteem. As an energy stone, it can encourage success in business and business relationships. (https://www.crystalvaults.com/crystal-encyclopedia/garnet)
