The Aquarius Full Moon is a time for us to let go of what's no longer working in our lives and embrace change, we must release before we can step into our new and truer selves. This full moon is also known as the "Sturgeon Moon" because it is the time when sturgeons are most plentiful in the Great Lakes. The Aquarius Full Moon occurs on August 11, 2022 at 4:22 PM EDT. This full moon is special because it is the last super full moon of the year! A super full moon occurs when the moon is at its closest point to Earth in its orbit. This makes the moon appear larger and brighter in the night sky. Making it's magic stronger and our magic as well. Not only is it the the last super full moon of the year but the Lion gate portal is still open AND the Perseids Meteor Shower are occurring during the same time! Seriously, it's like a cosmic orgy for magic, ya'll now is the TIME!
The Lion Gate portal is a vortex that opened up on July 26th and will be open until August 12th. This portal is special because it's rare for two to occur in such close succession and also during so much other cosmic activity. So what does this mean for us mere mortals (yes, witches included)? Well, the Lion Gate is a time of new beginnings, when we can start fresh and leave the past behind us. It's a time to let go of what's no longer working in our lives and embrace change. It's also a time to connect with our animal spirit guides and harness their power. Check out Chocolate & Steel's Spirit Animal pieces and charge yours during the portal!
The Perseids Meteor Shower is an annual event that occurs when the Earth passes through the debris field of Comet Swift-Tuttle. The shower usually peaks around August 12th or 13th, and this year it just so happens to coincide with the Aquarius Full Moon! The Perseids are known for being one of the brightest and most active meteor showers of the year, so be sure to go outside and take a look! So what does all this mean for us? It means that we have a unique opportunity to harness the power of the universe and use it to create positive change in our lives. It's a time to let go of what's holding us back, embrace our true selves, and step into our power. So go out there and make some magic! Before we go into how this full moon will affect our zodiac signs lets talk about meteor showers, their magic and how to harness it! Check out Yugen's many meteorite pieces and harness the energy of the meteor showers!
As I am sure you know a meteor shower is when numerous meteors or shooting stars streak across the night sky. They are caused by the debris of comets and asteroids colliding with the Earth's atmosphere. The Perseids are one of the most active and bright meteor showers of the year and they peak around August 12th or 13th. This year they will be especially active due to the fact that they are occurring during the Aquarius Full Moon. I'm sure many of you have heard that wishing upon a shooting stars grants you a wish, well imagine what kind of manifesting you can do during a meteor shower, especially if your channeling your own meteorite pieces during said time! Meteor showers are great for charging crystals, specially meteorites! If you want to harness the power of the Perseids I suggest going outside around midnight on August 12th or 13th and doing a ritual to charge your crystals. All you need is your crystal, some water (preferably from a natural source like a river or waterfall), and an open mind. Once you have all your supplies head outside and find a comfortable spot to sit or lie down. Hold your crystal in your hand and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths and allow yourself to relax. Once you feel calm and centered, begin visualizing white light emanating from the crystal and entering your body. See the light filling your entire being, cleansing and purifying as it goes. As you continue to visualize the light, begin making your wish for what you'd like to manifest in your life. See it clearly in your mind's eye and feel the emotions associated with achieving your goal. Hold onto that feeling for as long as you can. When you're ready, open your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Thank the universe for helping you manifest your desires and place your crystal in a safe place.
Not everyone will be able to see the Perseids Meteor Shower due to weather conditions or light pollution, but that doesn't mean you can't harness their power. If you're unable to go outside and watch the shower, there are still ways you can connect with the energy. One way is to work with crystals that are connected to the Perseids, such as Meteorite, Tektite, or Moldavite. Another way is to meditate on the energy of the shower and visualize yourself being showered with light and love. You can also use affirmations such as "I am open to all the abundance the universe has to offer" or "I am a powerful creator and I can manifest my desires." Remember, the universe is always working in your favor, so trust that you are being supported on your journey. The Aquarius Full Moon is also a time to let go of what's no longer serving you. This could be a toxic relationship, a negative belief system, or anything else that's holding you back from living your best life. The key is to release it with love and compassion. Remember that whatever you send out into the universe will come back to you, so make sure you're sending out positive vibes only. Take some time to sit down and reflect on what's no longer serving you. Once you've identified it, write it down on a piece of paper and burn it. As you watch it turn to ashes, visualize yourself being freed from whatever it is you're releasing. Feel the weight being lifted off your shoulders and the sense of relief that comes with letting go. Allow yourself to feel the joy and happiness that comes with being free.
Aquarius is a water sign, and its nature is to nurture. Its roots are in the earth and symbolize development, beauty, change, movement, life cycles. The sign Aquarius has a significant role in defining our societal norms, as well as the words we use to describe those norms, such as success, power, and freedom. This isn't a new concept, but it's worth repeating: your group's structure influences everything from how you treat each other to who rules the collective and, most importantly, who changes the rules that govern us all. The sign of the Aquarian is activated by Uranus, which is also the key to our higher aspirations. The collective consciousness is the shared ideas of a society, and it's the simplest definition. It's like a huge cloud of society's beliefs, ideas, and energy. Even if individuals are unaware of it, the collective consciousness has an effect on everyone's thinking and conditioned responses. It creates thought patterns and entrenched belief systems. As a whole we are releasing, changing and transforming into better versions of ourselves. During the Aquarius full Moon, be sensitive to how you are influenced by society. What methods have you used to be influenced by the world around you?
