Full Moon in Aquarius/Eclipse No. 2
Welcome to Aquarius Total Lunar Eclipse.
Reflect on a time when your heart planted a seed in your mind. You may have explored this idea at some point, but then something happened to distract or derail your creative plans, and you abandoned the idea. Then within in the past few days leading up to this Full Moon in Aquarius, you remembered the thoughts you nurtured and felt inspired by the return! The total lunar eclipse urges you to express those drives. You’re not the same person you were when the feelings first occurred. You have grown wiser and more confident in yourself. Pick up this compassionate project and begin to explore anew. Take advantage of ways that this love endeavor gives you the opportunity to connect with others and to enrich your spiritual and emotional life. If part of your plan involves giving to others, prepare yourself to accept all of the peace, generosity, and forgiveness that you’re offering. You deserve it too.
That might pain you to accept. YOU. DESERVE. To receive what you give so freely to others. To enjoy what you’ve worked so hard to attain. To let someone else answer the phone, cook the meal, or take the wheel. This Aquarius Full Moon Eclipse challenges you to release the illusions in your clutch. Yes you can acknowledge your achievements. Yes you can feel a sense of completion. Yes you can admit fulfillment. Yes you can realize your purpose or accomplish your goal. Sí tu puedes. Yes you can! Closure is yours for the having right now. All the hard work, dedication, long hours, body aching efforts, and unwavering devotion brought you to this point of praise. Celebrate you and your success. You’ve been gracious. You give back. You share your experience with others. Let others show their appreciation. It’s time to be seen and honored.
There is one source of conflict in your life right now. One obstacle that remains unresolved. Take heart. Forcing resolution will undoubtedly burn you out, and what’s a star that doesn’t shine? True, eclipse season is full of breakthroughs and breakups, but we can avoid breakdowns with a bit of attention and care. You may feel frustrated that something hasn’t quite gone your way, even with all the effort you’ve put into making it work. If you’re being transparent and honest with yourself, you haven’t put in the time the “right” way. Be real. You’ve been passively waiting on karma to do your work and it’s not happening for you because this task is meant to reveal your courage. Show the gods what you’re working with. It’s OK to feel worried while you take action. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. Make up your mind to address the remaining issue in a different way.
Now that you’ve released the idea that things have got to be “right” all the time, it’s time to make a fresh start with this one mission. Mind you, whatever you undertake is for the long haul. That’s right. The Aquarius Full Moon Eclipse wants you to slow down, Speed Racer. Cooling your heels might seem frustrating, like a school teacher warning you to “use your patience muscles.” When you take it a little easier, you will see the benefits, such as less mistakes and more stability. You’re an excellent multi-tasker, but this is not the time for that skill. This is the time to find alternative solutions.
Why? Why should you do that?? Here’s the reason: doing what you’ve been doing is preventing you from seeing the truth. You’re missing out on opportunities to deeply understand yourself and others. That karma that you thought was meant for others is also meant for you. All of our past circumstances lead us to a present moment. When this moment passes, you may or may not know what it was all for, but at the very least, this time can challenge you to let go of binary thinking. We live in a society that teaches right vs. wrong, black vs. white, and up vs. down, but that’s not how The Universe works. The Universe is. Being is the ultimate acceptance. The Universe is not biased. The Universe does not judge. The Universe does not criticize. If you do anything different during this time, let it be to reflect The Universe. Be in the moment. Be flexible. Be fair to others, and most importantly, to yourself.
