Full Moon in Aquarius ~ Possibilities

I write this as I sit in the early morning hours when I can enjoy the beauty of Venus Rising ~ one of my favorite morning rituals is to see and feel her beauty as she rises so brightly in the east. I love her as much as the Moon itself….she is one of my sky guides. 

Tomorrow morning (11:10 am PST) or afternoon (2:10 pm EST) we enter a Full Moon in Aquarius. Many of you have been hearing about the upcoming eclipses this month and this Full Moon is partnered with a partial lunar eclipse. Did you know that Lunar eclipses can only happen on a Full Moon and Solar eclipses only on a New Moon? Eclipses definitely hold an intensity that will pull on us to look more deeply at our patterns and show us the importance of showing up for ourselves.

Aquarius is a masculine, Air sign, ruled by Uranus and Saturn, and rules the calves and ankles. Aquarians are independent, progressive, and original thinkers. They love to help others, fight for causes and have a good intellectual conversation. I had the pleasure of living with an Aquarian for a few months and she taught me how to connect to my dreams by giving them time to fill me, to feel the world of possibilities beyond my doorstep, and think deeply. 

Full Moons are a time of illumination. This Aquarius Full Moon is a great time to harness the Air Element to sweep out and move stale, stuck minds. Aquarius, the Water Bearer, encourages us to draw down energies from divine places, bring forward our ideas, and go beyond our knowing into the unknown.

This Full Moon in Aquarius also falls under the celebration of Lammas, a time for celebrating the Corn Mother. Stories around the Corn Mother Goddess span across the continent. She is known as the Corn Mother or Corn Maiden to the Native Americans or the Great Mother Goddess, Demeter in Greek mythology, Other well known Corn Mothers are the Egyptian Goddess Isis, and the Celtic Goddess Cerridwen. In all cultures, her themes are abundance, energy, fertility, harvest, health, grounding, divinity and strength. The Corn mother brings with her the bounty of earth itself, with all her nurturing and healing capabilities. Corn Mother Goddess brings her love for you in the form of food to tell you it is time to nourish yourself.

So let us celebrate the Corn Mother under this Aquarius Full Moon ~ to keep us nurtured, to help us to move stagnant mindscapes into a place of gratitude and abundance. To connect to the energies of Aquarius in her light of possibilities!

Below area a few ceremonies to celebrate and nurture yourself and those you love: 

  1. Make a Corn Dolly Goddess: gather some dried out corn husks, wheat, raffia, ribbon, and scissors. Creating your doll can be a fun way to tap into your creative side! Here is a video that can help you start and below are a few pictures of some that can spur your imagination. Let your creative juices flow ~ and when finished place it on your altar, in your kitchen or hang her in a beautiful space. It will be a beautiful reminder of the abundance that is available to you … daily!


  2. A beautiful nourishment ritual is to celebrate the Corn Mother in the form of food. Making a soup is a beautiful ceremony in itself and doing it with intention, under the Full Moon and during Lammas, is a beautiful beginning to something you may find yourself incorporating weekly or daily.
    1. Gather together, a candle (any color will do because her colors are all colors of the rainbow!), your Corn Dolly or a picture or Corn Woman, Myrrh, Rose, Lavender or Sage essential oil.
    2. Stand in the middle of the kitchen and set a good intention for the ritual and food you are about to prepare; thank the Mother Goddess for all her nurturing foods.
    3. Rub down your counters with oil purifying your sacred space.
    4. Light your candle and if you like, light incense.
    5. Place your dolly or image of the Corn Mother near the candle
    6. Choose a few gemstones to add to your counter altar, aquamarine, amethyst or opal are great additions for this Full Moon. Cleanse your gemstones and place them on the counter where they feel best. If you feel inspired, place your cleaned gemstones into your grain and let it sit over night before using. If you have made your Moon Water, add some to the soup ~ it will give it additional nourishment from the light of the Moon.
    7. Wash your food that needs to washing and then place all the food on the counter in front of you and give thanks to the Mother Goddess for her bounty. Ask that the food nourish all who eat it and that it be delicious and bring health and comfort.
    8. Enjoy!
  3. For your altar under this Aquarius Full Moon gather the colors of silver, pearl white, or any multi colored items or cloth. Gemstones to hold, wear or place on the altar are Aquamarine, Amethyst, Opal. Take a few moments to meditate on the promise of things to come. Make contact with the magnetic energy currents of the atmosphere to recharge your body and connect to the cosmic energy of things to come…know your potential. TRUST in the promise of things to come.

This is a time of energy to harness. If you can turn it into nourishment, it will feed you and your life.  Don't forget to put out your Moon Water Gems...

Full Moon Blessings,
Moon Mama
