In this blog I'm going to share what to expect with the next Full Moon in Aquarius and what I recommend to leverage the powerful energies it brings. Plus I share a Full Moon Ritual that you can use to 'let go' of anything you wish to see the back of, which helps prep the way for your goals and intentions at the next New Moon.
As with all Full Moons its a great time to release all that isn't serving us, that which doesn’t feel right and habits you’d like to change. I also like to set intentions with a Full Moon to replace the what has been let go of, these don't need to be in depth or extensive as you would with a New Moon, however its an opporuntity to replace the energy with something more positive.
There are still 4 planets in Retrograde (where they appear to be moving backwards) which means the planets are closer to Earth and we feel the effects more strongly. Mood swings, tiredness, lack of motivation and being irritated are all symptoms you maybe feeling at the moment. Do what you can to continue to earth yourself and take time out.
So what can we expect with this particular Full Moon?
Aquarius is represented as a female water bearer, a Goddess who provides this liquid element to give life and nourish the land. She symbolises our ever important connection with nature and the Universe and trusting that everything is working out for our highest good.
With this Full Moon you may feel more connected with your wider community and may have a desire to a more healthy relationship with our planet. This could be seen with recycling more, picking up litter or giving to charities that support those causes.
A Greater Awareness! - This Moon reminds that we do have a responsibility to the planet we share and for what happens next. As our consciousness increases to some of the destructive practises that occur we may feel more driven to get involved to make a difference. The smallest steps to care and protect Mother Earth will have impact.
On The Brink Of Breakthrough? - This is a welcome Moon for those who have lacked clarity or have felt confused. The Aquarius Full Moon brings change and seeing beyond our own illusions and limited mindset. With this Moon you may find you start to see your choices and consequences in a new light which allows you make the changes needed to finally move forward.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HONOUR AND DEEPEN YOUR CONNECTION WITH MOTHER EARTH TODAY?
Reaping Rewards? - You may start to see the rewards of the seeds, ideas and dreams you planted earlier in the year. With the energy of Leo also supporting you at this time connect with the confidence and bravery of the Lion to keep you going regardless of the challenges you may face.
Don't Be A Victim! - Be mindful of challenges that may arise with this Moon and falling into victim mode, you have the choice to struggle and fight or trust and surrender. Take responsibility where you can be empowered to take action. Your limitations could also be highlighted with this Moon, try to take a different view point and think out of the box to solve or heal them.
ITS TIME TO RECLAIM YOUR POWER AND SWITCH THE NEGATIVITY INTO SOMETHING THAT WORKS FOR YOU!
Conflicts & Revolt! - With this Moon's light and with the up and coming New Moon in Leo, you may see people become more brave. This could relate to those around you, yet likely to be seen within our communities as people find their inner confidence and strength to express how they feel and push back. More political and societal revelations and secrets are likely to be revealed over the next few weeks.
Get Creative - Aquarius is an Air sign and so represents ideas, information and thinking so this is the perfect time to get creative and think out of the box. If you've struggled recently with seeing a situation from a different view point then tune into this Moon to change that. Sharing ideas with others may also prove useful and open up new connections.

FULL MOON RITUAL
🌕 List all that you would like to release on paper - things that no longer help you in your life, blocks that are you wish to now remove - emotions, beliefs, people, habits

🌕 Don't forget to charge all your Crystals, Oracle and Tarot cards in the full light of the moon. You will have this energy the day before and after the full moon.
🌕 You can also create Moon Water which helps you to release. Place a glass of spring water on the window sill or outside with some gauze over the top or tin foil and allow the moons rays to charge the water.
🌕 Keep the water in the fridge for max 3 days.
