Aquarius Full Moon at 1°26′
*7:36pm PDT; 8:36pm MDT; 9:36pm CDT; 10:36pm EDT
Maybe you’ve read from other posts how ‘rare and magical’ today’s full moon is…
Yes, the next full moon, on August 22nd, is in Aquarius, again. Through the twenty-ninth degree.
Again, not rare and magical… it’s typical.
What would be rare and magical?—surrendering to the edgy transformation of something particularly ordinary about yourself that you feel particularly honest about… into something extraordinary, incorporated into your everyday.
For a moment, let’s set aside the woo woo modern rulership of Uranus and all its uniqueness and innovative phenomenology, as well as the ever ready uniqueness and phenomenon that is You, and remember that Saturn rules Aquarius, traditionally—which is currently moving retrograde through the eleventh degree of Aquarius, a degree which represents “the essential value of keeping open to the descent of spiritual or soul forces, especially when a new period of individual activity is about to begin…”
Being open, as open as you can manage to manage, to the What If’s of Life—the What If’s that are reflected beyond from within.
Further, “[one] should not depend mainly on outer circumstances and on traditional incentives… there is a creative power within, a power that can be tapped, or rather that should be allowed to flow into the brain-consciousness…”
But because this is Saturn, woo woo isn’t being offered, nor is it even reasonable to consider—this opportunity is more like a demand, or a requirement even, or something more like a personal obligation—rather than some sort of whimsical new-agey blessing.
Because, ultimately, today’s full moon is associated with “the need to develop the inner security which will enable [one] to meet unexpected crises.”
What is a crisis?
Within its finest essence, a crisis is a decision, a separation… a crisis typically, and oh so magically and ultimately, simply demands something of a judgment.
Transforming whatever crisis is occurring for you in your reality at this time into something extraordinary… perhaps this is your decision—to respond or react toward.
To reflect your inner motivations out…
If you’re already living your natal potentials through transits and daily aspects—then you would know well enough what I’m talking about… that today’s celestial traffic isn’t rare or more magical than any other day, because when you live your astrological potentials—what I refer to as walking your red carpet—every day is magical.
We make very real decisions every day.
