Tonight is a Full Moon in Aquarius, and also a lunar eclipse! While a full moon usually illuminates both literally and figuratively, this lunation’s travel through shadow will likely bring to light that which has been hidden in the past, consciously or not. We may be able to see how our childhood experiences have shaped who we are now, for some because that inner child is triggered to react in the face of some conflict. If this happens to you, taking the time to examine where this came from today can help you to better integrate it and become all the better for it. An eclipse reminds us that even that which we try to suppress, deny, or ignore is a fundamental part of who we are, and the light of the moon gives us the clarity of vision to recognize how to work these things in a positive direction, or simply see them and let them go. This lunation is about recognizing and then releasing old attitudes, habits, and patterns of belief and behavior, and moving on towards your vision of a beautiful future.
This eclipse precedes a total solar eclipse coming on August 21st, and in a way it is opening a door for us to get ready for some big changes coming. It’s a wonderful time to clear out the clutter from your mind and home, and spend a little time allowing the empty space rather than filling it up again right away. It’s also a lovely time to recall and summon to the surface the most joyous and playful parts of your childhood self. What was your favorite animal? What was your favorite book? What did you most love to do on a Saturday morning? What activity made you feel happiest on the playground? Dwell in the memory of what brought you delight when you were small, and try to take the time to do something that kid would have liked to do. They are still here, inside you all the time; invite them to come out tonight and play!
