Full Moon in Aquarius – Monday 12th August 2014

DSCN0012The moon is full at 4am our time on Monday. Sunday night full moon, that is at it’s fullness early Monday morning our time. This is a super moon  and to understand more about what that means go to wikepedia. I felt the need to actually look it up because there seems to have been a lot of super moon talk lately.

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, disruptive energy that potentially shifts us to a better place. It is traditionally ruled by Saturn, discipline and structure.

For some insight read:

Mystic Medusa: Brave New Supermoon Secret Powers: features a quote from Aldous Huxley as well as another link about Super moons.

The 11th House: Anubis Full Moon has all the details about how this moon will affect you.

Big Sky Astrology: Aquarius Full Moon- Other Tribes -asks the question ‘Who are “your people”?’ Great question!

I’ve scheduled this post for the exact time, I hope all the shifts are amazing for you:).

New Moon in Aquarius – Friday 31st January 2014

I missed the earlier moons this month, apologies for that. I was contemplating stopping my moon reflections, because there are so many good astrologers out there, but I like recording them for my own notes, so I’m going to recommence.

The first post I’ve read is Lynda Hill’s Sabian Symbols: Silent Moments & New Inspiration & Rewriting The Stories: The Aquarian New Moon. The reading is particularly relevant to me because this moon has aspects to many points in my chart. This moon is opposite my Mars, and as you can read, this means Venus and Pluto are conjunct my Mars at this time. I’ve been enjoying a lot of solitude and reflecting.

The astrologers I like best are empowering. Unlike the old school, fatalist astrologers, they make the planet’s movements like weather predictions, it’s not prohibitive, just helps you to make the most of the conditions, or as today with a dark moon, explains why I’m a bit tired and allows me to know at 8.30ish tomorrow morning I’m going to be refreshed by the new moon. I’ve also been enjoying learning about my own chart and how I express that and how I could better.

I started an online course earlier this month through Good Vibe Astrology. It’s being led by one of my favourite astrologers, who also writes terrific books, Kim Falconer. The Path to Abundance has deepened my knowledge and enthusiasm for astrology and has really supported me to ‘rewrite my story’ at this time of personal change in my life. I enjoy listening to Kim’s voice on the recordings and I frequently smile – her joy is contagious and her I can hear a deep knowledge of astrology that inspires confidence.

If you are interested in astrology Mystic Medusa has a podcast: DIY Astrohacks Number 1. She guides you through reading your own chart and it’s well worth the time and $$. When you learn about your own astrology chart, it is a great tool for working with your strengths. Mystic Medusa is always a great read, funny and intelligent, with a depth of interesting topics – my favourite blog.

Full Moon in Aquarius

Full moon much later today, after I’ve had a sleep.  I missed my goal to put the project on pozible.com by Friday. There were a few things I hadn’t considered and I ran out of time. I have most of them handled now. Then we’ll see if it is approved. I’ve had some great feedback from people who have  helped by reading it and giving me feedback, listening to my ideas, asking important questions and generally being there for me in lots of ways. Ways and people too numerous to mention.  I continue to be surprised, delighted and appreciative of all the generous, talented and helpful people I know.

Moonkissd by Jessica: Aquarius Full Moon: Dream Catcher has this quote that fits how I feel right now:

” I can trace every accomplishment that’s ever really mattered to me to a string of people who have made it happen. Like a string of pearls, each of these precious people have had everything to do with my personal and professional success.”

I don’t know if this latest reach will be successful and I am nervous about it. I’m nervous because I’ve had so much encouragement and support and I don’t want to disappoint others. I mainly don’t want to disappoint myself. I want this, and it feels vulnerable to go after something this big, to do it so publicly and to ask the world for so much.

I’m also excited. I had brilliant feedback from the school that has students participating in the Digital Shed. The students are showing the school what a difference this community interaction can make.  Community members who have received 1:1 help from the students have come in and collected posters and distributed brochures this week, because they love the service. If the crowd funding isn’t successful, it’s not the end of the world. We can continue in other ways…. but it would be awesome if it was successful!

According to the post above this moon has all the energy I need to make my dreams come true, so I’ll just go for it.

Full Moon in Aquarius – 24th July 2013

The full moon was yesterday in the wee hours of the morning. There has been much shuffling around in the skies this week. Mercury has gone forward after it’s retrograde period, Venus and Mars have changed signs. I’ve lost track of the days. My friend lost a whole week, which became a real bonus to her when she found it.

I think I could probably stop nodding to astrology twice a month. I’m not an expert, most of what I write about is from the things I read. I doubt that people who read this blog are into astrology. It’s just one of the things I am fascinated in.

I find astrology keeps a structure to my blogging when life is as busy as it is. The moons are my deadlines. I count posts between. Indulge me if you will.

New Moon in Aquarius – Sunday 10th January 2013 – Chinese New Year

It’s the Year of the Snake this year. I am a Snake so it’s my year. I am glad to have this new start to 2013. This year has tested me. A family member has been ill, I don’t have work, hence an income and I have found myself not fitting my usual social circles. It sounds worse than I experienced it though. When things go wrong, you get opportunities to change the structures in your life and make them more aligned to the things you value. The things you just put up with or go along with suddenly become intolerable and I have acted to change them.

I am grateful for my family and friends who have been present with me and made a big difference. I have picked up some abandoned projects, started some courses and got to enjoy family visits. I’ve applied for some interesting jobs and I feel confident life will fall into place for me.

Kim Falconer has a Chinese New Year forecast for the western astrological signs. April Elliot Kent has a reflective piece on all things Aquarian.

I’m celebrating Chinese New Year this year by making Short Soup. We love it. When Darin was an apprentice he worked for Chinese people who created in him an appetite for lots of wonton in his soup. He tells me the number of wonton you can eat was a big deal for them. On Friday night, we ordered takeaway and had to pay for 3.5 bowls of soup because he wanted 15 wonton. I restrained myself with a regular 4, but wanted more after I started eating them. Today I am going to make my own and have as many wonton as I can eat. Yum!

New Moon in Aquarius – 23rd January 2012 – Chinese New Year

I have read that the Year of the Dragon doesn’t actually start until 4th of February on Kim Falconers 11th House blog. I love Kim’s new blog. It’s a great read. We are having dinner tonight with friends to celebrate the New Year. Monday night is not really a party night though. I have in no way cleared my home of clutter this year. It will be clean enough. I’m not sure what I do with all my time lately!

This new moon in Aquarius is taking place around 6pm. When the moon is new in this sign, it’s a good time to hit the reset button of your mind. Aquarius is an air sign, so think mental. Air signs are also about communications. Check the delicious feed for more reading on this new moon.

Full Moon in Aquarius – Sunday 14th August 2011

In the early hours of Sunday morning, the moon will be full in Aquarius. It was under a cover of cloud tonight when we ventured out for dinner, but I’m guessing it’s large under there.

Today has been relaxing.
