Full Sturgeon Moon
Full Moon in Aquarius
August 13, 2011 we will have a Full moon in Aquarius at 20 degrees at which time the full moon will shine its brightest at around 1:58pm EST and 10:58am Pacific. This will be the only full moon in Aquarius this year so embrace and breathe.
The August full moon is also known as Full Sturgeon Moon named after the Native Americans. The Sturgeon moon is remarkably named after the sturgeons of fish available around theGreat Lakes, however the tribes in the southern part of theAmericasname it the Full Red moon because of the heat the moon seems red and hazy. In European nations it was the named Green corn moon after the corns appear to have green leaves and grains are at its highest peaks.
When the Moon is full, the pull linking of the Moon on one side of the earth and the Sun following creates and unbalanced draw and as humans since we are 80% water it many have a great affect on our own bodily water levels including the earths atmosphere. There will not be any surprise if there are more floods, or a surge of rain in many parts of the world due toNeptuneinfluences and electrical outages due to Aquarius influences.
However, the moon may not just move parts of the world with water, mercury retrograde is going to make it difficult to say what we want to say and do as we want to do. Additionally dreamyNeptuneis also make things very dreamy. Which means anything is possible.
Full moon energies will begin at least 5 to 7 before it occurs. Full moons are about finales, concluding chapters in life and the final conclusion. For every ending there surely will be a new beginning. Though it could be difficult and it will not be easy it is a greatly needed change for the better. This affect can be intensifying for those who have the sun, moon or any houses in Aquarius. People having a birthday February 11 or five days before or after will feel this energy like no other. There is no doubt that this energy creates an inner lug, completeness – and may help us to connect physically with others. Everything becomes crisp and more powerful under the light of the Full Moon – passion and self-worth can become quite exaggerated, and there is more consciousness and focus on relationships.
In the mix of all the changes mercury is still retrograding which causes mis-communications, missed appointments and just a lot of aggravation. Careful with the words you choose in areas of relationships. Or if a relationship has broken up this is a sign from the universe to take the time to reconsider if this is something that needs to be held on to or just simply let go. On the opposite side if the relationship is stable and strong there is a greater need to respect the other persons personal time and allow them to grow. Read more about mercury retrograde here.
There could be a surge of energy during the light of the moon and our dreams will magnify this. There is greater tendency that perhaps there will be a lack of sleep on 12th night, hence, there is a greater need to watch out for bleeding-please take care. This is the time to gather, pray and be appreciative, and to work on fruitfulness and affluence. Love and Romance go wild under a Full Moon, especially aroundmidnight. In a full moon there is a greater calling to become highly purposeful, clear minded and aware of your own desires and the needs of others. Plant herbs at this time bring something new into your life.
Since the sun is still in Leo and the moon enters Aquarius, both of these signs are in the areas of being creative and talking from the heart and to the extreme I am in charge (Leo) and public, friends, and family awareness (Aquarius). Basically these two energy equates to asking the question if we are healthy enough emotionally, physically or spiritually to service people at large. However, each Astrological chart is unique and I would suggest that you set private time with a Leslie Hale, (Western Astrologer) and discuss how affects of planets will influence road blocks or sublime bliss.
In Native Lore, this Full Moon was known as the MOON OF RIPENING BERRIES it’s also known as the Raspberry moon. As ripe berries were gathered and used for paints, dyes and as a source of Vitamin C. Health and inspiration are highlighted and there is a sense of well-being and excitement to this lunation. During any full moon your psyche may be triggered but do not react until you are absolutely sure. The mind will play tricks and later there may be a need to save grace and face.
Moon in Aquarius You have an emotional aloofness – a knack for objectivity regarding your own and others’ feelings. However, at the same time Aquarius moon brings a sense of detachment and often different. There may be tendencies to be an outsider looking in. Viewing expressive situations logically and scientifically may be the best thing to do. Feelings may come up randomly. The tension in this moon will be to make a choice what is more important personal yearning and what is good for the soul and spirit. For emotional fulfillment seek company of friends who do not judge.
During the full moon you may look to your mother for friendship and intellectual stimulation, and may feel that she is distant or aloof. Through her or thoughts there is a deep understanding of how life is a puzzle and its time to put it together.
Full Moons in AIR SIGNS are times when the Moon exerts its weakest influence, because the Sun as Life Giver is strong in the FIRE signs. The Aquarius represents the Harvest Moon, a time for celebration and rejoicing; emotions are strong, of a happy and carefree nature. Of course this applies primarily to those whose charts are not unduly afflicted in the sign of Aquarius and the other fixed signs.
Since, moon in Aquarius represents Rebellious, Wild, Rational, and friendly; Unpredictable it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced. This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is my suggestion that you purchase an orange candle and carve your name one through the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil or sage oil and chant the psalm 51. Perhaps choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired consequences are depended upon the excellence of purpose, and when it comes to finding fulfilling relationships, it is of the greatest importance to be clear and understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Aquarius moon is:
“Omsri Shanaishwaraya Namaha”
(Omshri shan-ish-waraya nahm ah ha)
This mantra produces the quality of friendship within oneself including others.
The intention of this mantra is smooth your path in life by helping you understand the lessons you have set for your self and through karma the negativity will surpass.
With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is a slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. Remember never make the affirmations beginning with “I want”, it must be worded “I need to be shown how to retain”
Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a physic or a tarot reader. In my opinion an in depth reading should be done every moon cycle. Since, every moon cycle represents a change it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well. Of course, we all have burning questions every now and then and it maybe necessary to have a reading done more often, but sometime we have to let universe take its course. When dealing with a tragic situation it is my suggestion that before you have a reading done you must clear away negativity and fear from your emotions so that a reader can give you the clearest reading possible. Remember every physic base all their telephone readings on your energy. Ask guidance from the higher power before having a reading so that there is neutrality in the energy shared. The clearest answers can be given when energy is at a neutral point. Never get a reading with your energy is scattered – you may not receive the best reading possible. 98% of all physics are empathic and clairvoyant so this energy is very important to them as well as you.
Always remember every reader has their boundaries as to how far in the future they want to read. This is of their choice; however, reading beyond 6 months is a very hazy situation. Our free will plays an important role in our destiny and we are able to change anything. This is the main reason why many readers do not go beyond the 3 to 6 months mark.
These are general tendencies based upon Vedic and Western Astrology intertwined to be as clear as possible. I am NOT an astrologer nor do I claim to be, however Astrology is a building blocks to the Vedic Sanskrit readers. While astrology focuses on fixed emotional and physical events, Vedic reader focuses on remedial factors to deal with the energy in hand. While Astrology focuses on remedial actions, Vedic looks at triggers which cause an action which instigates a reaction. Hindu ideology confers that these utilities are necessary part of our lives, since our mind directs the ego and it our emotions that sets the plans into action good or bad. If the action chosen is passed through humility and honesty than life will always bring out positive outcomes at the end.
Wishing you the most pleasurable and safest journey through this full moon and I hope you are granted the positive light you desire.
