Aquarius Full Blood Moon-Mars Retro Lunar eclipse is symbolized by The Star #17 in the Tarot. Aquarius is associated with this card which is also considered a Wishing Card a blessing after the hard awakening of the Tower #16 which preceeds this card which destroys the ego.
The Full Moon Eclipse is July 27 @ 1:20 pm PDT /at maximum at 8:20 pm GMT.
Aquarius/ the Star is a sign of higher consciousness and cosmic awareness that we are all One and united under the Heavens. Aquarius rules the Internet, new technology, science cloning, stem cell research, cell phones collectives and social media.The Goddess Urania one of the 9 Muses is pictured on the card. She governs the study of Astrology. Uranus is the modern planetary ruler of Aquarius a masculine detached air sign of revolutions freedom technology and going “beyond” limitations and a sign which shares power with the group or tribal mind.
The South Nodal eclipses asks us to release old ideas of feeling separate alone alienated isolated and left out. We are being called to release the past and the next eclipse in 2 weeks time a Solar Eclipse in Leo takes us on the high road of the heart and being sovereign autonomous and living from the heart.
Remember that Mars-ruled Aries and Scorpio are being impacted the greatest by this eclipse as well as Aquarius and the other fixed signs Taurus and Leo 
At the Lunar eclipse when our emotions are blocked temporarily as the earth throws her shadow over the Full Moon the stars will come out of the dark and the unseen will be lit. Mars will shine almost twice as bright as Jupiter. Use this rare and special longest eclipse to ground yourself like a lightning rod. Take the higher-minded road during these intense times remember that we are all star stuff all carbon-based diamonds in the rough.
The Aquarius Lunar Eclipse  Blood Moon-Mars Retrograde MEDITATION

This rare and special extra-long Total Lunar eclipse is part of South Node Saros Cycle 129 featuring Mars Retrograde at its brightest being eclipsed on the same day.

This extra-long lunar eclipse allows us to take a long overview of our present situation here at this very powerful turning point in humanity’s evolution.

A South Node Aquarius Lunar Eclipse points us to releasing old ideas and paradigms- ones which we thought were based on technology progress “equality” and mass brainwashing.  This brings us a revolutionary occasion for radical change, to gain Higher consciousness, to expand our awareness for the whole, the group mind, and for massive growth on all levels.

As the Moon is eclipsed by the earth’s shadow the feminine physical world grounds our emotions. We become like a lightning rod. The stars come out as the Moon grows dark red and the bright night sky is turning dark and black. It is a time of great mystery and all the animals and birds will be silent during the totality which is 1 hour and  47 minutes.

In North America, we will not see the eclipse or be in the direct shadow which is where the effects will be felt the strongest but we will certainly feel its effects. This is a time for being deeply introspective with Mars Retrograde and Mercury too along with Saturn Neptune and Pluto. Mars is Out of Bounds from July 7 to September 24 the old Masculine warrior paradigm is ending. It is also repressed angry and most fiery and dangerous too. The positive side of an Aquarius Mars Retrograde is of being in service to the heart- the opposite shadow side of Aquarius which is Leo which we will get to in two weeks.

This is a time for exploring in the void the cauldron of rebirth. Aquarius is the only fully human sign of the Zodiac. We are leaving the Age of Pisces, Christianity’s symbol. The Age of Aquarius whenever it actually begins is about equal rights for all humans, gays, LGBT, men and women. 

The Water Bearer, the 11th sign, is an Air sign, not water. Aquarius’s glyph, the double lines that look like waves, are lightning bolts and symbolize the waters of consciousness and our bodies electrical kundalini energy.  Your consciousness is the Light. Many Ancient civilizations believe that our ancestors came from the stars. The Star in the Tarot, the 17th Arcana card shows this energy of the Goddess as the Stars, as cosmic vessels of divine light flowing down to the earth to quench our human cosmic desire to be connected with source.  

Aquarius energy is like being struck by lightning. The Eureka moment when the big light bulb goes off in your mind.  Aquarius, the electric sign, is the sign of uniqueness, genius, higher consciousness. Aquarius energy is groupthink, tribal mind freedom from old structures and limitations of Saturn-the Patriarchy  History and customs -even though the cosmic cop rules both these signs traditionally.

The Sun in Leo the opposite pole to the Aquarius Lunar eclipse is about self-expression, our childlike ability to play, our passions and dramas, our leadership, roles, hearts, our abilities to share power and our higher consciousness where we are all in fact ONE. We will be drawn there in 2 weeks on the next Solar eclipse in Leo August 11  on a New Moon.

This Lunar Eclipse brings to a conclusion a cycle that was begun 18+ years ago. The last eclipse in this cycle was in 2000. Previously in 1982 1964 and 1946. Donald Trump was born during a Lunar eclipse Saros Cycle 129 and this eclipse will propel him into some karma he was born to confront.

MEDITATION for the rare Blood Moon Aquarius Mars Retro Lunar Eclipse

If you’ve been doing previous Full Moon meditations gather the four candles, color related items and incense.

We are connecting with AIR and the stars. 

Smudge yourself first, cleanse the area you are in. Center yourself and BREATHE. Aquarius is AIR.

Light your four candles one by one starting in the East for fire, this is the cosmological system I use but if you are pagan you begin in the South with Fire. Always move clockwise, wherever you start. Call in the four elements and directions. Call in the Holy Guardian Angels and your own and the Angel of this Moon, Umabel {oomabell}.

Close your eyes. Go into your heart. Visualize a root chakra opening meditation.

With your eyes open or closed look up into the vault of Heaven and see the sky filled with thousands of stars. Each star represents an ancestor watching over you. Every person is connected with a star. Follow a star that attracts your attention. In your mind’s eye travel out from your crown chakra at the top of your head to it. When you reach this Star you will have a higher consciousness  perspective. Look back at the earth, a tiny blue planet on which seven billion individuals co-habit. See how tiny your issues are when faced with the vast expanse of Space.

From this higher perspective it is easy to detach from any emotions, people and situations that have been keeping you feeling stuck, stagnant or blind. Sense the freedom!  Now connect with the spiritual consciousness of the specific star. You don’t have to know which star it is. Open your mind to a new adventure, a new learning curve.  See, feel or sense the Soul of the Star, the Guardian of it, its essence. Ask its permission to speak with you. Open up to dialogue with it. You will have an extraordinary experience if you seek, ask and open your mind. You are always safe and protected.

Ask the Soul Star what you need to release to enable you to integrate your body feelings mind heart and spirit. Be patient, wait.

All you have to do is ask, be open and receive. Always give thanks and be grateful for what you may experience.  Many inventions are triggered from these stellar interactions.  From your Starry perspective make a Fixed vow that you will follow through and earth that new experience, energy, invention and freedom which you have received.  Bring your consciousness back down to earth and know that you can connect yourself anytime you wish to the Star and make wishes on it too.

CLOSING the CEREMONY

At the end of every ceremony or ritual you must thank the spirits and elements for coming to be in your circle. You must release each one back to their direction, starting in the East or South, whichever direction you began. Thank each one out loud is best, for participating in the ceremony. For example for fire. Say “Thank you Sacred Sprits of Fire for being here in my circle  in this ceremony and in my heart. I release you back to your direction with great love and gratitude. Ho.”  Repeat for water, earth and air. 

At the end of the ceremony say, “May the circle be open but unbroken. May the love of the Star Goddess be ever in my heart. Thank you. It is finished in beauty. Aho.”

Love is in the Air, Venus in Aquarius March 5, winds of change…

Yes LOVE is definitely in the AIRWAVES as Venus is in Aquarius March 5- April  5.

Additional March winds of change are blowing on many levels, not just personally witness Ukraine, Venezuela etc.

Aquarius’ symbol is two electric currents, so it’s a month to REVOLUTIONIZE YOUR LOVE LIFE!

A month to get ZAPPED! Wake up to Higher consciousness and experience radical Love, Venus as Electric Ladyland, 

she rules your passion, values, dollars, fall in love with a revolutionary new cause, or one.

We’ve experienced a lot of high Water sign emotional emphasis Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, Neptune and Chiron in Pisces so this is a very welcome break to breath some fresh air into our hearts.

Venus is values, you may choose to walk away from a relationship that is too smothering emotionally or just to draining and dramatic. Who needs it?

AQUARIUS Venusian energy is about EMOTIONAL FREEDOM.

Try EFT Emotional Freedom Technique or TAPPING to free yourself from old emotional habits. 

Fixed AIR SIGN Aquarius loves groups, and may be hard to get close to emotionally. 

They love everyone in general in a cool, safe, detached, ultra modern, HI TECH way.

THE LOVE WEATHER REPORT is FRESH AIR, WINDY and COOL this MARCH

Mercury the communications planet is also in Airy AQUARIUS till March 17.

You will find lots of detached indies to connect with.

Mars in AIRY LIBRA Retrograde now all month. 

Old lovers may reappear or you will find yourself thinking about someone a lot. This goes for men and women.

It is  a fab time to get some thinking distance to examine, dispassionately, what we have been doing, loving, relating to.

The North Node is also in  LIBRA. The North Node is our Highest spiritual goal. It is all about relationships.

Venus in Aquarius must have the latest gadgets, she is always communicating, thinking and analyzing.

No fashionista, Venus in Aquarius always marches to her own drummer.

FAMOUS VENUS in AQUARIUS WOMEN-

OPRAH WINFREY  who has innovated higher consciousness through her spiritual teachings and TV show,

Yoko ONO, Simone de Beauvoir, who helped birth the Feminist movement,

ELLEN DEGENERES- one of the first women to come out publicly as gay

Taylor SWIFT, Sheryl Crow, Kate Middleton, Nina Hagen, the original LADY GAGA, Marlene Dietrich- who wore the pants,

The VENUS in Aquarius PIN UP GIRL is like BJORK .

 The symbol of Aquarius is very ancient, the Egyptian Hieroglyph for water, and shows either a God or Goddess pouring water from a vase in the starry firmament onto the earth.

Aquarius Keywords UNCONVENTIONAL LOVE, individual, freedom, revolutionary, inventive, pioneering,brilliant thinkers. 

It is associated with the Tarot Trump -THE STAR  # 17

 

and is connected with WISHING ON A STAR.

If you are feeling down and depressed, especially those of us in the extended Polar Vortex then meditate on the WISH FULFILLING STAR of HOPE. THINK BIGGER, VASTER, new ideas and creativity will come.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY is MARCH 8

It’s also very relevant to have VENUS in Aquarius to commemorate  suffragettes, Women leaders and forwards thinkers. Like Susan B. Anthony who was an Aquarius born Feb 15, Susan Brownmiller also born Feb 15, Bette Friedan born Feb 4, Germaine Greer born Jan 29 and Virginia Woolf born Jan 25.

NICE AIRY TRINES use them wisely, take advantage of them GEMINI too.
