Full Moon Eclipse in Aquarius – The Star

Tarot card meaning, The Star tarot card, Aquarius, full moon, eclipse 2017

The internet is abuzz with talks of the August eclipses – starting with the Lunar eclipse in Aquarius on August 7th and the Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 21st.  Solar Eclipses are always paired with a Lunar Eclipse in the opposite sign, and these two eclipses create a portal or doorway for powerful transformation and change to occur.

These coming eclipses are mirror images of the eclipses we had in February (at that time the Lunar eclipse was in Leo, followed by a Solar Eclipse over China in the sign of Aquarius).  Think of what was going on for you in February of this year – there were likely some big drastic personal changes.  Personally, these changes and transitions may still be unfolding.  Worldwide, China’s relationship with the United States was big in the news – Trump had initially taken a hard stance against China but in February we saw him concede to the One China ruling as well as some other interesting interactions between Trump and Xi Jinping.

So on Monday we enter The Lion’s Gate (what astrologers are calling the August eclipses)- are you ready for some powerful change?

Wendy’s Tips For The Eclipse Season:

  • Be aware of your feelings and emotions – particularly around “darkness” or the shadow self.  The eclipses will illuminate the shadow self and bring things to the surface.  It is best to face these things head on, but with patience and compassion.  You have an opportunity here for deep healing and transmutation.
  • Be aware of others acting out of ego or fear.  Everyone will pretty much be feeling like their personal crisis is the most important thing going on – and they are right!  For each of us, our personal conflicts will hold some deep truths that need to be noticed and heard.  Give your friends and family space to express themselves.  Holding space for each other to work through pain or powerful revelations will be a really important part of the work done at this time.
  • Follow your heart!  The Aquarius/Leo energy pairing is all about mind vs heart.  Aquarius is more “thinking” while Leo is more “feeling” but both really want the same thing – fellowship and love.  The Aquarius lunar eclipse will highlight ways we can GIVE, while the Leo solar eclipse will highlight how we RECEIVE.  Finding balance between giving and receiving will help you access the changes and transformations of this eclipse season with grace.

Narrowing in on the Lunar Eclipse coming on Monday, let’s examine some of the energies surrounding an Aquarius Full Moon.

Aquarius, aquarius full moon, aquarius lunar eclipse 2017

Aquarius is the Visionary sign of the Zodiac.  Supported and fed by this sign are the energies of Humanitarians, Activism, Loyalty, Sociability, Friendships, and Unconventional ways of thinking, etc.  Aquarius is represented by the Tarot Card “The Star” – which is the ultimate card of hopefulness for a bright future.  The Star brings hope and inspiration after the destruction of The Tower card.  Rebuilding with a sense of serenity, spiritual contentment, compassion, and creativity.  For this eclipse, think about what gives you Hope.  What inspires you to give back to others?  In what ways are you healing and inspiring others and providing nourishment to your community in meaningful ways?

The Star Tarot Card Meaning

 

For some, the eclipse may bring up feelings of discontentment.  You may find yourself feeling more relateble to the reversed meanings of this card… lack of faith, lack of creativity, hopeless, bored, disconnected.  If this is the case, don’t worry!  It’s just the eclipse doing it’s work with Shadow!  Allow yourself to look at these feelings with honesty and without judgment – and ask yourself what needs to be changed or realigned in your life that will allow you to feel hopeful, connected, and creative again.  Spend some time journaling or meditating through this.  (These feelings may arrive before the eclipse and last for several days after.)  Better yet, Talk. To. Your. Friends!  Aquarius energy is fed and supported by community and friendship above all!  Below I have included 3 tarot spreads I found on Pinterest that would be perfect to use around this Lunar Eclipse.  If you don’t read tarot, or would simply like someone else to do a reading for you, feel free to contact me!  I’ll be offering all three of these readings on a Sliding Scale for the next week! hestiasmuse@gmail.com

Spring Equinox Tarot and Oracle Card Reading
The Vernal Equinox is a great time for setting new goals, starting over, and evaluating your dreams for the future. What seeds are you planting in your life as you move into spring? What patterns or energies do you need to let go of to “weed out of the garden”? What energies do you need to bring into your life to “fertilize the soil”? We will examine these concepts in a multi-deck reading. I will use The Fairy Tarot and the Earth Magic Oracle cards to conduct your reading. After chatting with you via email or instant messenger, I will consult the cards and write your full reading in a report which I will send to your email, complete with pictures of the cards!
I am so honored to help you take an in depth look at your current path and to share insights for you to be able to move forward with clarity and empowerment. Blessed Be! Happy Spring Equinox!

My Favorite Things 1-15-17

I want to share with you some things that currently make me happy!  Perhaps you will find something here that makes you happy as well!

 

This week I read the first book in the Reverians series by Sarah Noffke, “Defects“.  It’s the start of a Dystopian adventure series with The Dream Travelers – a race of people who can travel anywhere they want in their dreams and also have other supernatural powers.  This secluded community of Dream Travelers seems to be the perfect place to live, but one “Defect” (a Dream Traveler who never developed her Supernatural Powers) is learning that things are not what they seem.  Check out Sarah Noffke – I love all her books so much!

My favorite body scrub is the Feature of the Week at Perfectly Posh!! When you go dark, you’ll reveal soft, clean skin. Our Love the Dark Body Scrub features black sea salt to exfoliate, and activated charcoal to help detox and rid your skin of dirt and other impurities. Then moisturizing shea butter and honey soften and calm your skin so it’s gorgeous and smooth. And if that isn’t enough to make you fall in love with the dark, its captivating sea breeze scent will have you hooked. Get yours on sale this week for just $23! www.perfectlyposh.com/wendyjoe/love-dark-black-sea-salt-body-scrub

My brother got me the 2017 Herbal Almanac for my birthday and I am really enjoying browsing through the many articles, recipes, and herbal based crafts here.  Great for herbalists of any level (beginner or advanced).
