Saturday brings us a full moon accompanied this time by a lunar eclipse. The two together in this way bring power to the people, and power to you.
Every full moon relates to the completion of something significant in your life and the wider world, while eclipses are about endings, and beginnings too. It often is forgotten that an eclipse is the initiator of a two year cycle involving perhaps the unravelling of something in your life or an inception: the implications of this full moon, amplified as it is by its eclipse, are enormous.
Astrologically speaking, Leo and Aquarius are significant influencers of this new eclipse cycle, and furthermore the full moon is governed by Aquarius in its esoteric sense. Aquarius is all about your community or group, and so for some time to come the emphasis will be on people, including you. Leo is about leadership, strength and authority, and I see this astrological alignment as indicating the transfer of power from the minority elite to the mass of the people in ways that will be revolutionary and extraordinary. The signs are here, all over the world, and the movement is unstoppable.
There is an inter-dimensional realignment going on too. It complements the lunar activity, in that as humanity more and more operates from a higher buddhic plane, its new power base will come not from the mental, material plane but from the etheric realms. Ego will be replaced by a focus on the collective, and the conscious practice of white magic will become increasingly important. It is no coincidence that the 7th Cosmic Ray is becoming more and more powerful as it moves to become the dominant Ray on Earth, and its violet hue and themes of order, ritual and magic will further assist the passage of all men and women who choose, to spiritual completion.
This eclipsed full moon, then, is one to respect as the bringer of power to the people and as the facilitator for the new energies affecting so profoundly all our lives for now and for the new age. If you see the moon on Saturday (0032 GMT), in all her glory, and in her shadows, you may wish to remember, and to give thanks for all that she is and all that she brings.
