Here comes the second consecutive Full Moon in Aquarius of the year. Taking place at the very last degree of this fixed air sign (29°, the so-called “anaretic” degree), this Full Moon is a pure build up of Aquarian energy. Like… a real bomb!
The sign of the Water-Bearer is associated with Prometheus, the mythological titan of fire. He is known for defying the Gods of the Mount Olympus by stealing their fire and offering it to humankind. He is a rule-breaker, a fighter for individuation and freedom who brings innovation to humanity. This Full Moon is an incredible mix of this energy. Let’s dive deeper into it!
A Full Moon is a moment of manifestation. The seeds we sowed at the New Moon are now giving their fruits. We see the results of our intentions, they are here, in the full light, and we might understand just now what this moon cycle is actually all about. It could have a totally different meaning now that our ideas are blossoming. Is it really what we expected? Really what we wanted?
This is the perfect moment to let go of what you don’t need anymore. With Aquarius it’s simple, and it’s the second time that we receive the same message: LET GO OF WHAT YOU ARE NOT. The Aquarian energy is really, like REALLY pushing you to define what you are not, what you do not need, what you do not want. Ask yourself truly: who do I wanna be? Forget what your family, your teachers, your friends, the media taught you about who you are, how you should behave, what you can or can’t do. WHO ARE YOU?
This is the time to shed the old skins. You have to understand that you are unique. That everyone is unique. There’s not only one, but as many life paths as there are individuals, and no one can define yours except you. The ideas, the projects, the dreams that you have about yourself can be manifested for real if you free yourself from the dictatorship that was imposed on you since you were born.
Believe me, I know how hard it is! But that’s why the cosmos is currently playing in our favor, sending us a big shot of Aquarian energy, bringing some courage for the battle. It shows us that to become who we truly are, we need to deviate from the norm imposed by the group, by the society. But to do so, we absolutely need to leave the herd behind to initiate radical change. The society in which we live is outdated and rotten. It needs to change as soon as possible. For it to happen, humanity needs people to do the work and initiate this change. We are all called to incarnate the spirit of Prometheus at our own level. Simply by being ourselves.
On this Full Moon, Jupiter will also be in conjunction with the Moon in Aquarius, exaggerating even more the deep desire to break free, to be yourself, to follow your own path. Remember that Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, which transits the sign of Taurus and turned retrograde last Thursday. Not only do you feel like you emotionally need to change, not only do you have a powerful inner force telling you to break free, but you just don’t have the choice because the world as we know it is simply falling apart!
With Uranus retrograde in Taurus until January 2022, everything can be expected in terms of natural catastrophes, economical breakdowns, etc. Radical changes and a lot of suffering are to be expected. So according to me, holding on to the current structures of our society is pointless. Forget about the 35-year credit for a house or the retirement plan that you might have when you turn 67. We can only update and actualise ourselves to play the role we are spiritually called to play in the new world that is taking place. Notice that I don’t say “the world that WILL take place” but “the world that IS TAKING place”.
There’s a big Trine between Saturn in Aquarius, Venus in Libra and the North Node in Gemini. That shows again that we need to completely rebuild the structure of our society, and of our relationships to support the evolution of humanity as a species. Venus in Libra infuses a spirit of fairness, integration and equality in the new world that we’re building. Really, it’s not my own utopia that I’m describing. It’s crystal clear, this is where the universe is trying to take us, and it’s up to us to follow the signs...
Neptune in Pisces is opposing Mars in conjunction with Mercury in Virgo, forming a trine with Uranus in Taurus… The life force (Mars) is infused in our mind and intellect (Mercury) to help our most crazy and innovative ideas (Uranus) and even our dreams (Neptune) be optimised, polished, perfected, and put humbly to service by the Virgoan energy. I mean… Do you really need to know more? I already said too much. I stay available if you have any questions.
Play your part, do your best to become yourself!
The world is changing. So must we.
