Thursday, August 18th, 2016 brings us a powerful Full Moon – with ripe energies, that may allow for new opportunities to be harvested.
The August Full Moon is referred to by Native American tribes as the “Sturgeon Moon”, or “Full Green Corn Moon” – with the reason being, that the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this time – and this is also known as a moment when “all things ripen”.
This particular Moon will be residing in the sign Aquarius, which is known for the energies of altruism, freethinking, free will and friendship. Aquarius governs one’s hopes and ideals, but also confronts anything paradoxical in nature that we may be looking to reconcile.
What we want and what we need are two desires that may seem to be like two ships passing in the night. To get what we want – our energy must be placed on what we need, but to get what we need, we sometimes don’t have what we want. If we look at time as something that is malleable with our desire, and focus on patience through the process, we can eventually meet somewhere in the middle of our wants/needs, and manifest what we truly dream of by looking deep within our hearts to tune to the truth inside.
Each Full Moon illuminates our intentions, and magnifies their power, as our senses are intensified, and the ‘spiritual’ veil lifts – calling our soul’s desires to the surface. If we take this time and place our attention to what we need to reconcile deep within our soul, in order to manifest our greatest hopes and dreams, we can find a renewed clarity of consciousness that brings a more effortless ease in manifesting what would make our experience feel the best.
It may be of value to take this time and look back over your summer, and see how far you’ve come/and how much further you’d like to go moving forward into the fall. With only a few more weeks left in August, before we know it the seasons will begin to change, and a new cycle of life will begin. Did you make the most of the sunshine, or is there still some darkness you need to shed light upon? What lesson would you best say summed up your experience? Take some internal inventory – and ask yourself what has “ripened” in your life that you’re most grateful for, and what may have “spoiled” that needs to be re-purposed or “recycled”?
The light of the Full Moon is yours to bend with your will, let your mind speak in alignment with your heart, and let love be the current that pulls you forward.
