Use this week to prepare for next Monday's Full Moon in Aquarius.
Whether you feel the emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual effects of the Moon phases and accompanying astrological signs, the influence is there.
Each moon phase and each astrological sign have certain characteristics that impact the energies in and around us. This lunar effect is recognized by hunters and fishermen as well as everyday people like myself.
As a holistic health educator I like to inform people about new things that can benefit their health and wellness. Moon phase information is important for me to share because my understanding to these energies has greatly benefited my health and wellness, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I feel that others can use the knowledge of moon phase information to make small but meaningful changes to their lifestyles.
Yesterday (Sunday July 30), the Moon entered the First Quarter in Scorpio. If you were out enjoying the beautiful day (in New Jersey), you may have noticed the moon rose about 6 hours after the sun, so just around noon. The Moon will be in Waxing Gibbous as visibility grows throughout the rest of the week.
The First Quarter Moon in Scorpio forces you to ask yourself the question: What Are My Motives?
With the fear of rejection at the center of Scorpio character traits, it is important to show yourself inner love today ( Monday ). Also consider taking the necessary actions to invoke growth in new areas of your life.
We begin the month of August with the Sun in Leo and Moon in Sagittarius. The sun will remain in Leo throughout the month but the Moon will only be in Sagittarius temporarily.
The Farmer's Almanac suggests using the Moon in Sagittarius to weed, plow, or prune your garden. You can translate this advice into your life by weeding out things in your life that are no good for you.
The Waxing Gibbous phase helps us to refine, observe, and balance whatever it is we are manifesting. Similar to how it is a great time to perfect the nature around us, it is a great time to perfect and nurture ourselves.
With Moon energies increasing throughout the week, it is important to take the time to show yourself some love and self-care. Get outside, whether it be to tend to your garden, to build a garden, or to walk in a garden, get outside! If you find that your sciatic nerve and thighs bother you, spend some time in a field or the ocean. If getting outside is an issue for you, try spraying some rose hip oil or using cinnamon while cooking.
The three days leading up to the Full Moon are very important for cultivating and building the momentum to grow.
From Thursday to Saturday, the Moon will be in Capricorn.
Capricorn Moon characteristics follow the same waxing gibbous theme of discipline, balance, and structure. Similarly, the waxing gibbous stage is known as the development stage. In the developmental stage it is ideal to build the momentum to prepare for growth while you cultivate, refine, and observe what you have been doing already.
If you have an idea or goal, do not let this time pass without doing something proactive about it.
Full Moon energies may be a lot for one to handle, therefore I suggest preparing for the Full Moon by journaling, participating in ceremonies, recharging in moonlight, etc.
The moon will enter into Aquarius on Sunday and become it's Fullest on Monday August 7. The moon energy will slowly start to decrease as the moon diminishes in size. Once this happens, begin to let go of what no longer serves you. The changing moon will take from you whatever you need to release. The Full Moon is not necessarily about letting go and cleansing, but I recommend using the lunar energies as a source of release.
I do use the Full Moon to reflect on past intentions and how they correlate with my growth. I like to use this time to see how I have transformed and will continue to transform in the future. The Full Moon (and New Moon) are very selfish times for me because I spend a lot of time by myself (with my crystals). If you are interested in doing the same, use the weekend to recharge in the moonlight. Whether it be with a bonfire, watching fireworks, camping, etc., just get outside and spend time AWAY FROM MAN MADE ELECTRICITY** and near the moon. This goes for your crystals, oracle cards, and any tools you may use in your energy healing.
Purifying yourself, your space, and your tools with high quality essential oils is highly recommended during this time. Diffusers work great for this purpose.
(**Man mad electricity,power lines, lights, etc. make it more difficult for us to benefit from lunar energy.. In fact, I feel that man mad energy and electricity we commonly surround ourselves with our devastating to our overall health, but especially energetic health.**)
Aquarius characteristics center around personal freedom, liberation, breaking free of habits, individuality, etc.
Have you been seeking an individuality driven transformation but do not know where to start? The Full Moon in Aquarius can help.
Aquarius energies bring about the breaking free from uniformity and incorporating changes to things that do not work. If you have been trying to do SOMETHING but need a little push, the energies from the moon in Aquarius is here now to give you that push.
The reason I like to give people at least a week to prepare for the Full Moon is because you can benefit greatly by using the Moon energies for your self-healing. If you do not have enough time to really assess what you want for this moon and how you can use it's specific characteristics to your benefit, you may not get the most out of it's presence.
