Lunar Eclipse

Sun in Leo

The Moon waxes full in the electric sign of Aquarius early tomorrow morning. The atmosphere is filled with tiny charged particles of an electric stimulant that typifies the Aquarian thought process. The ruling planet of this airy sign is Uranus, whose impact moves full force with a strong pulsing current that provokes radical change and heightens the neurological system as it prods the entirety of the being to evolve.

Uranus is currently retrograde so that impulse of electrical current is increasingly amping up its wattage and having found its natural companion in Aquarius this moon’s energy is one of pivotal change.

Aquarius is a mental sign of the Fixed Modality. This lends itself quite well to providing a structure and container that synthesizes with the agility of a computer. Abstraction and processing at the speed of light are how this sign sorts through information which lends the added benefit of being to see all perspectives and alternatives of action to arrive at a very logical outcome. This is the energy that places Aquarius as the sign of humanity; that is the collective of humanity and the good for all-even if it means the sacrifice of the one.

The Lunar attributes of healing, intuition and feeling were this cloak of Aquarius and those soothing qualities are now colored with an “intelligence” of the heart that provides a level of discernment and balance so that feeling and mind can come to a place of co-existence. This is the space of waters that are energetically charged with impulse and quickened to produce quickly moving and potent flow that carves new paths of exploration that open the way for new visions of what can be to arise.

The Lunar Eclipse

When a Lunar Eclipse occurs, the Earth finds itself mid-point between the Sun and Moon. I see this as an opportunity to infuse the earthly and manifest realm with the strength of the Sun as it gathers to itself the healing of the Moon. In the action of reciprocity, the manifest realm becomes the place of filter for the Sun’s enlivening and the Moon calls into itself a dynamic potency that has been “flavored” by physicality.

Esoteric Implications

This is another way to utilize and contemplate the Lunar Eclipse.

Within the practice of Esoteric astrology the Sun has a tri-fold nature. Its physical energy is that of the fohat, pure electromagnetic dynamics. The spiritual overlay is that if Prana, pure life force energy that sustains and enlivens us. And, at the level of the individual the Sun is the space of awakened consciousness. The potential of what we strive towards as spiritual beings that has been charged by the flow of solar energy in our physical form.

In this month’s eclipse energy, the Sun is in Leo and the call is to bring center and focal point to the actions and efforts of the individual. Leo is protective of what is under its care and that protective nature is another way of garnering attention and movement into the space of leadership. 

The Moon is the storehouse and keeper of memory and the subconscious space of desires, want and need. This is the space of reconciliation between our physical and mental processes and what it is that our Soul truly desires to make it whole. This is often the deeper disparity between what we feel to be true and what we know to be true. When these are working collaboratively there is no separation between mind and heart as each informs the other.

The Aquarian Moon temporarily disrupts the magnetism of Leo’s nature and provides the necessary information that will help to determine what is true and valid qualities of a leadership style that is productive and for the greater good. 

The Earth is the place of our inner and outer journeys. The outer is one of physical experience and the weight of responsibility held in what that physical experience has as offering. The inner journey is one of recording the lessons of these experiences, the acceptance of the effects of what we cause to be and what visions we infuse to quicken this lifetime. This is the place of service and the yearnings to make whole that service in offering to the Divine.

The Earth energy stands as the central point of measure that reminds us of our humanity (Aquarius) and the singular (Leo) contributions we can make to the collective that are productive and growth-filled. 

The experience of these three planets of alignment as the lunar eclipse comes into focus of energy is one of wholeness. It is one of moving into a collaborative state with the physical you, the will-filled you and the you that remains outside of space or time that is reflected in our Higher Self.

Waters of Informed Light Flow

The traditional image of Aquarius is that of the water-bearer pouring their dynamic waters out to flow on land or sea. I chose the image above as a reminder that those healing waters that contain the light of knowledge and vision. Another point of reminder is that the importance of this image for Aquarius is not only the waters emanating from a vessel of form and containment, but the space of vacuum and emptiness that awaits the filling of whatever you wish to place within it. Turn these waters back onto yourself. Allow the flow of light to wash over you as you envision the future that you desire to fill the space of potential that remains.

Father Sun, now in the charismatic astrological sign of Leo, demands his “Lion’s Share” of attention. The natural tension that occurs between these two signs (Sun and Moon opposing in the configuration of a Full Moon) is one of the vision of the “I” (Leo) and the collective “We” (Aquarius). We can use the full light of this vision to find our place of self awareness. We can seek the vision of our strength in our manifest world and the gift of our Light in the spiritual. This is a Full Moon of seeking a future that is inclusive of all yet celebrates the uniqueness of all that contribute to that whole.

Pour out your waters of electrified wisdom; bathe in the gifts of its vision and fire up your Mind in the cool waters of Mother Moon.

Please enjoy a vision of Mind’s gift…

Sun in Leo

Fire erupts from
Water’s cool embrace.

Flames of liquid light
Reaching out from healing
Chakras centerpoint.

I claim the healing
That flows organically.

I claim the strength
That moves from the Source.

I claim the life that
That pulses with every
Heart’s beat.

I claim the wholeness
That was my birth rite.

I claim the Goddess and
God that create within me.

Let the healing begin
In waters under darkened
Moon’s light.

Breathe in the liquid
Light of rainbow’s hue.

Let is bubble up from you
And let the healing begin
In the flames of Leo’s sun.

The Moon is new today in the astrological sign of Leo. King of the heavens, dynamically charged and demanding attention and recognition. These fires now being applied to the watery nature of a moon that flows with the seeds of catalytic change ripe and…
