{Renewal}

The Power of the Heroine ~ feminine power from the depths of the inner world assists in accepting and understanding the mysterious nature of life.

Flora

Surrounded by Fauns, Flora celebrates the arrival of spring. Blossoms appear on the trees and the renewal of life is visible throughout the countryside. Set in the verdant landscape, a rotunda provides a place to quietly reflect on the beauty and vibrancy of the new season. The time to pay tribute to growth and prosperity has arrived. As a fertility goddess, Flora gave Juno magic herbs to help her conceive. Juno fell pregnant and gave birth to Mars, the god whose name is linked to the month of March and the arrival of spring.

When Flora is chosen she announces a season of renewal, bringing the spirit of growth and success to a new project or relationship. She brings a new awareness of personal values and a feeling of security. This may also suggest a renewed physical awareness, causing you to feel more sensual and energetic. The appearance of Flora predicts the entry into a season of prosperity and resourcefulness.

Feminine Wisdom

Our life force is a renewable resource which flowers when it is time for the new cycle to take hold in the world.

Full Moon in Aquarius

This Full Moon is also known as a Blue Moon, being the second full Moon to take place in Leo/Aquarius

Image

This AQUARIUS FULL MOON has an extra bit of creative magic with the Sun in Leo. The time is potent to follow our hearts to create new pathways. There is a simultaneous shedding and emerging as we focus to ground our visions into form. Some deep activations happening as well so we must move with the changes, allow what wants to come forth, and trust our inner knowing and guidance.

Moon in Aquarius — Sun in Leo

Aquarius is the water bearer – stands for a bridge between Heaven and Earth – the emanating divine flowing waters. The Moon is in the airy power sign of Aquarius, symbolizing the Cosmic Mind.  Just as the archetypes reflect the basic principles of the Divine Order, the Aquarian Mind reflects that higher order of thinking. The Leo Sun this full Moon is on the royal star, Regulus, located at the Lion’s Heart. When the Sun is on Regulus, it bestows power, authority and honor to those worthy of them. So let us be worthy to take on our own authority in the world. Let us own our inner Queen and inner King.

This 2nd Leo/Aquarius Full Moon activates the energy of one of the four ancient Persian Royal Stars, considered to be sentinels of humanity’s evolution. 

Aquarius offers us freedom at the same time as it demands that we find ways to work together for the benefit of all humanity. We need that larger vision if we want to evolve humanity beyond our culture of violence, self-centeredness and domination into one of peace, partnership and creativity. The energy of Leo is heart-centered and heart-felt.  Leo’s confidence comes from knowing what lies at the heart of life—creativity, love, generosity to others and a deep sense of Self. The royal nature of Leo stems from this self-confidence in Life—when we realize that we are responsible for the choices we make in our lives. We are not powerless, even in the face of oppression. Leo is the power of fire, of spirit, of creativity.  Fire consumes, warms, and illuminates; fire symbolizes purification and transformation. The alchemical fires transform our consciousness, opening us to deeper insights and wider understanding.

Blue Moon

A Blue Moon signals the completion of a process which began with the first Full Moon of the two. The time is potent to follow our hearts to create new pathways

An astrological Blue Moon is a rare thing and something to be noted. It occurs when the Moon is full twice in a solar month, giving us two successive Full Moons in the same zodiac sign. The second of those Moons is a Blue Moon. The next such moon isn’t until June 2016.

The July 22 Aquarius Full Moon occurred at 1 degree Aquarius (Moon) and 1 degree Leo (Sun)

August 20  Full Moon occurs at 29 degrees Aquarius (Moon) and 29 degrees Leo (Sun)

Throughout the intervening month there’s been a lot of pressure needing release and emotions needing acknowledgement. This is a Moon which seeks to empower us to make positive choices and significant changes in our lives. She sees our potential and shines upon each one of us equally, knowing that within every individual lies the possibility of change and growth, no matter who, where or what we are, what we have done or what we believe.

 At times like this we have a golden opportunity for growth and transformation, a chance to release the fetters that keep us constricted and bound. We have an opportunity to ‘do’ life in a different way, and the more of us that can do that, the greater the potential for inner shifts to be reflected in wider societal and global change. The next two weeks will bring a dramatic appearance of new spiritual qualities and events, and those who go deep and understand the nature of the subconscious mind will find new power and answers to the Great Mystery we’ve all been exploring for several months. Since Jupiter is firmly in Cancer, we can use emotional intelligence as we explore and find truth in new cares, new feelings, and a new sense of stability.

As with last month’s Lunations, family and personal feelings will run strong, so be clear about what you’re feeling as a result of the facts you’re seeing or the actions you’ve taken or are taking. Some may experience impatience and frustration at the pace of the process, while others will glimpse a new identity suddenly revealed that revolutionizes the life.

With any full moon phase, it brings you in touch with emotions and feelings as well as anything that has been lingering in the shadows within the subconscious mind becomes illuminated.

Sweet Marjoram Essential Oil

Associated with eternal peace and happiness, quintessential Aquarian ideals, sweet marjoram is known for its antispasmodic and circulation-enhancing properties. With its pacifying fragrance and tension-calming effects, this essential oil may help to calm an overly stimulated nervous system. Use in a diffusor, smell a few drops from the bottle and/or add to some almond massage oil.

 Buttercup Flower Essence

When you need some support stoking the inner flame of self-value, buttercup flower essence may be of benefit. It’s especially good for periods when we are judging ourselves by external markers of success that, in turn, degrade our sense of self-worth. It helps shift the source of light from the unreliable-without to the eternally-sustaining-within.

::Nemesis::
{Retribution}

One of the first Goddesses and Daughter of Night, Nemesis is an ancient Goddess of Justice, known also as the Goddess of the Inevitable. She personifies the wisdom of Karmic Retribution and is intimately involved with the Wheel of Fortune. When this card is drawn you may be struggling to accept what is inevitable or feeling the unfairness of life. However, you are in the sanctuary of Nemesis, who clasps the thin veil between Divine Retribution and Human Justice. While you might feel wronged, it is important not to seek revenge, but to allow divine justice to prevail. On an oracular level, Nemesis is the inner knowledge that, against all odds, integrity will triumph in the end.

Feminine Wisdom: Nemesis understands that life is inherently just and that the Wheel of Fortune raises us up and lets us down. The Goddess validates our feelings, places them on the Wheel of Life, and releases us from acting on them.

Full Moon in Aquarius

First of 2 Full Moons in Aquarius (7.22 & 8.20)

The Aquarius Full Moon signifies a time of change. Traditionally the Full Moon is a time for release-when tensions and emotions have built to a point where there must be expression.

This Full Moon takes place at the axis of Leo-Aquarius..the Sun in Leo is about expressing Courage, Willingness and LOVE..Strong Courage Being Who you truly Are, Willingness to Not resist Change..and Love to Embrace ALL experience and Self..as the Beloved; The Entranceway to the Divine.

Leo is Connected to the Center of the Solar System and to our Solar Plexus..the Inner Sun within..From the Center, the Heart and Inner Light.

A Full Moon is always bringing light and awareness into the specifics of its sign. Aquarius is the revolutionary, guided by a vision of freedom, equality and solidarity. These are the activists, the rebellious spirits and forerunners pointing the way for evolutionary changes. And we will be having two of these to really help bringing home the point.

Uranus which is the ruler of Aquarius went into retrograde motion on the 18th of this month and will put you in touch with places within yourself that you have either become disconnected from or suppressed. It can be a time of uncertainty and insecurity, but can also make you feel more alive than you have felt in a long time. During the retrograde period you will discover those parts of yourself that you have pushed to the side and labeled “weird” and will start to embrace them as a unique part of your personality. The Full Moon will play a big part in kick starting this process, and will help you to see that those things that you may have viewed as negative or needing to be hidden, may actually be the very traits that lead you into happiness and success.

As Saturn is squaring this Full Moon, you may find that there will be some strong emotions bubbling away just under the surface. Aquarius isn’t that fond of displaying emotion, and nor is Scorpio(which is where Saturn is), but it would serve you well to identify and give expression to what is vying for your attention. Both of these signs to tend to favor solitude to work through their feelings, so some time out wouldn’t be a bad thing…just make sure that you don’t try to analyze your emotions away. Really feel into them, and let the tears flow where they need to.

Saturn is giving form to the deeper passions of Scorpio, while Aquarius is asking that you find those ideas and plans that are hidden within you and bring them to the light. Adjust or let go of situations that are holding you back or not working for you anymore, and open yourself to the endless possibilities that this world can offer. If you have been putting off starting something or bringing an idea or goal to fruition, now is the time to start. Just start, no one ever got anywhere by procrastinating.

Mercury has now gone direct which means that you will be able to communicate with a lot more ease and clarity, and the Aquarius Moon will help you say what you need to say with more of a detached and analytical manner-just make sure it’s not too sharp!!

Humanitarian pursuits, inventions, technology, and groups will somehow feature in your life over the next month, and if you think that life is going to run to plan ~ expect the unexpected!!

Sometimes things may go askew, and sometimes you may not get things that you thought that you wanted…but there is a higher power at work here, and you will always get what it is that you need to support you on your journey. Speaking of your journey; some friendships may start to unravel now as you find yourself seeking companions who are of similar mind. This will be more of a process than it will be an abrupt cutting off, and for those of who you have had a seemingly out of the blue argument with someone that has ended in separation, cast your mind back over the past few months and you will be sure to see that the signs have been there for a while. If the connection is right for you, there will be resolution;if not it will pave the way to make room for new and more improved connections with people on your wavelength.

This Full Moon is especially powerful because it is also the 3rd of three Super Moons in a row. A Super Moon happens when the Moon is the closest to the earth, pulling on the earth’s plates and electromagnetic fields. This is all very powerful stuff, especially because it is tied in with your emotional awareness and maturity. Good, juicy feelings mean you are on the right track; keep going. Bad feelings are a call to action. Something is wrong; you need to make some changes…

Prepare yourself for CHANGE..Move deeply into your heart – your Center. Allow the Opportunities for New Creation to move you through any Fears.
