Moon Goddess - Aquarius

Moon Goddess - Aquarius

This full moon comes around two in the afternoon on Saturday here in New Mexico, so Friday night is at least as good a night for ritual as Saturday, since it catches the waxing energy of the Moon.

The theme for this Moon is manifesting your ideals.

With any Aquarius Full Moon, the underlying tension is the Aquarius-Leo axis: whether to embrace the ideals of a larger cause or focus on your own sense of self-esteem and satisfaction. There is an urge toward service, that is both challenged and energized by the feeling that personal success must be achieved first.

This Full Moon, however, offers an opportunity to resolve that tension in a potent and meaningful way. Saturn, Mercury, and Venus are all closely conjunct in Virgo. Together, they are wonderfully effective in making things take form on the physical plane, in a way that is not only structured but creative and esthetically appealing. This easy practicality complements the Moon’s Aquarian penchant for abstraction. Furthermore, this impressive triple conjunction is in a close trine with Jupiter in Capricorn, ensuring that whatever we do produce at this time of opportunity will provide a happy boost in recognition, status, and the other trappings of success. This makes the Leo Sun happy. There’s a lot of energy available this Moon, and it’s all good stuff.

This is a time to actually get to work on that wonderful creative project you’ve been stewing on, out of fear that it will be met with criticism, or (worse) indifference. If you apply yourself now, you will be surprised at the quality of the result, and so will others. A ritual or magical working Friday or Saturday to initiate and energize your undertaking should set things off on a strong and felicitous path.

Affirmations for this Moon:

I craft my dreams into being
What I do is valuable and visible
I bring the sacred down to earth
I share my wonder
