Pouring the Creative Flow from Within – Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius
Art: SANTIAGO SAVI
Let us welcome the partially eclipsed Full Moon in Aquarius
“But about the first watch the Moon in eclipse, hid at first the brilliance of her heavenly body, then all her light was sullied and suffused with the hue of blood.” Curtius, History of Alexander.
The Moon in Aquarius opposes the Sun in Leo, in a close approximation to the ecliptic, thus creating a partial Lunar Eclipse. In this type of eclipse, the light of the Moon is partially covered because the Earth is in the middle between the Moon and the Sun. A slight red hue can be seen in the Moon at the moment of the eclipse.
Because the Earth (us) is between the opposing forces of the Moon and the Sun, this eclipse can bring a sort of disintegration* or unbalance in some people. On the other side, the Moon light is covered, which means a partial time of darkness on Earth. This is a proper time to go deeper into ourselves and allow us to experience inner healing. A time to face our shadows and see our own demons. The demons that block us from being, from feeling free, and from expressing our truth.
And once the Moon is back from her misty reddish darkness, we can see life with a new perspective and a new reborn attitude. In this symbolism, we are given a time to balance our own inner dynamics and integrate them positively into ourselves. See the good and the bad, the motivations and the fears, the limitations and our desires, our creativity and our sense of duty. Face it all, and come back renew.
Together with the Sun in Leo, we find the Mars, and the North Node of the Moon. This is a highly energetic time, in which the creative flow is looking for alternative routes to flow. For some others, this creative flow might just be starting to find a “leak” in order to escape and manifest itself. In any case, Mars in Leo brings determination and a strong will. Some people might feel more “powerful” or fearless. Some people will be experiencing the courage to try different things without fear. Some others will be going through a creative boom. In any case, during this particular time, we need to go deep, meditate and reflect upon where are we now and where do we want to go. Set intentions this night.
The Moon, on the other side, is in Aquarius, together with the South Node of the Moon. So the Sun is focused in a conscious personal creative realization, while the Moon in Aquarius pushes for more, for creating a stronger social change. Some people will find themselves rejecting totally the status quo, rejecting norms, views, society, regulations and order. Yes, some people might go a little wild and create rebellions, in the worst case, to an extremist point.
Nevertheless, the Aquarian energy is actually symbolizing the need to go back to the past and see our wishes, our modes of operating, our views, whatever we considered important and what we thought the world needed to change in order to become a better place. Perhaps these ideas are still latent, perhaps some have been forgotten. What does the world still need? What changes should we make in our lifestyle, in our attitudes, in our views, opinions and behaviour? How can we work towards making a change? Together? – That is the key.
