The powerful Auquarius Full Moon

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”

On Friday, July 27 this week, we will have an event in the sky that makes the hearts of moonchildren & the moonstruck ones beat faster. It’s a full moon, a blood moon. Nope, no bloody-women-stuff. It’s called blood moon because it will be a lunar eclipse and the moon appears to be red then. And it’s the longest lunar eclipse we are going to experience in this century.

The Aquarius Full Moon – Changing times are coming

Well, I know I’m repeating myself but the sign the full moon will be residing in this Friday night is Aquarius. A sign corresponding to the element of air and the quality of light. The free-spirited, group-oriented and creative energies of Aquarius are accompanied by Mars who is in retrograde motion, acting with ambition and sometimes aggression but because of retrograde, these energies are more focused on our thoughts & feelings. Furthermore, Mars is in square aspect with Uranus, so the energies just give us a full load of impulsiveness, spontaneity and non-conformist behaviour.  One more planetary energy is “slowing down”, Mercury is going retrograde too, so the sender of energies helping with business, communication and information-gathering goes a little into a “sleep state”.

 

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

The Universe just wants to heat it all up and get things going. It’s full moon, the peak of the moon energy, harvest time. Yet, a full moon comes with the sun in opposition so it’s about being in between things. The sign the sun still is ruling and where it feels at home is Leo, so energies of confidence (but be careful with arrogance), fearless expression and love might influence us.

Sounds a little chaotic, fast, tensed and if one thing is for sure, then that skies want to tell us that there are big changes ahead.

Moon Magic & Yoga

moon

The Moon. A symbol for the feminine, the mystical, the subconscious. A symbol for cyclic transformation, feelings and the shadowy parts of our inner worlds.

Yoga. An ancient philosophy system, a tool-box with a lot of tools for everyone on the way to knowledge of the self, to union with yourself, others and everything around you, for we are part of a bigger picture.

And then we have humans. Energetic but also physical beings. Humans, living in a big ecosystem that responds to the gravitation of the moon. Beings made out of molecules, fluids, bio-electrical circuits. And equipped with a gift called consciousness to witness all the magic happening around them.

Connecting lunar phases & the yoga practice

Why do I talk about these 3 components, humans, yoga and the moon? Because when you combine the wisdom about lunar phases with the wisdom of yoga, a human being can profit out of this combination. Let me explain further.
