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:
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,
