Full Moon in Aquarius and Lunar Eclipse July 2018 - Change is Inevitable
On Friday, July 27th, 2018 the moon expands into the Full Moon phase. Aligning in the sign of Aquarius and dancing alongside the Full Lunar Eclipse, this is perhaps one of the most powerful and transformational moments of the year.
Likely you've heard that this is the longest eclipse of the 21st century. This eclipse will last nearly 103 minutes and be visible to most people living in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America.
But even for those of us who live in areas where it won't be visible, I'm sure we are all feeling this profound energetic shift.
Women all over the world have been writing to us via email and on our Instagram to share what they've been feeling over the last week. Dozens of sisters have shared that they've been feeling extremely tired, exhausted, on edge, noncommittal, ungrounded and flighty with this Lunar Eclipse energy. Have you been feeling similarly?
We all know that the lunar phases affect us as human beings but especially as women and anytime a major shift like a Lunar Eclipse happens, it's generally felt deeply by all of us.
With this Aquarius Full Moon and Full Lunar Eclipse, we are standing on the brink of a new beginning, a new paradigm, the next layer of our consciousness. Old patterns, beliefs and ideologies are burning away as space is created for this new path. Many of us have felt this unsettled energy over the last few months and now the birthing process of this new layer is beginning to crown.
Everything that has happened over the last few months - all of the misalignments, the pain, the chaos - is now emerging in a metamorphosis like birthing.
Sister, this is your time to allow transformation to happen. Surrender to the shifting times. Do not fight the waves and rather let them carry you to safety.
With this astrological alignment, we are also seeing shifts in the Divine Masculine. Men are also feeling this shift and feeling called to shift the paradigm and walk beside us as the Divine Feminine rises.
Mercury is also in Retrograde until next month but fear not! Remember that Mercury in Retrograde is a powerful time to reflect on our beliefs and to be mindful of our commitments. Read more about how to thrive when mercury goes retrograde here
Such powerful alignments are happening with this Full Moon! Here are 3 ways to celebrate this sacred Full Moon Eclipse time ~
1. Be gentle with yourself over the next few days. If you feel low energy or extra tired, try your best to make space for rest. Allow yourself to feel everything and let go of the need to make something happen.
2. Meditate or sit beneath the Full Moon and reflect on what things are exiting your life. Is there something new you can feel bubbling below the surface? Is there something that has been patiently waiting to be birthed? Allow this eclipse to push it over the edge into being.
3. Dance it out if you're feeling stuck. If this energy is bringing up feelings of stagnation, anger or irritability, dance it out! Turn on some music that makes you feel embodied and empowered and take space to shake it out.
If you live in an area like the United States where the eclipse will not actually be visible, I still recommend getting outside this evening to soak up the Full Moon energy and perhaps even witness beautiful Mars.
You have everything you need. Trust.
In lunar gratitude,
