The Full Moon on August 15th is influenced by the energies of Aquarius, the sign of the collective. Symbolised by the water bearer, Aquarius reminds us of our interconnectivity and that we’re all just reflections of one another. There is no separation in the eyes of Aquarius; there is only the collective whole. We are connected through our consciousness, our energy and our frequency, and what one person does affects the rest of the population.
The sign of Aquarius tells a story of the water bearer who travelled from community to community bringing water, and as she did so, she would collect stories of how other people lived. Then she would bring these stories to the next village she visited, merging the ideas of people who may never have connected otherwise. In this way, Aquarius brought new energies and new ways of thinking wherever she wandered, encouraging a paradigm shift and an expansion of consciousness. Aquarius can also be said to be a sign of progression.
Part of the evolution brought to us by Aquarius is in understanding how we are subtly connected to, and are affecting everyone around us. The Aquarius Full Moon is a time to understand that our individual frequencies travel far beyond our selves. When we understand the effect of our energy on those around us, we begin to take responsibility for the vibrations we emit.
The Full Moon in Aquarius is a time to work on our personal vibration by shedding things which lower it. Energies of fear, hate, guilt, shame and destructive behaviours and toxic mental constructs lower our vibration and corresponding frequency. Energies of love, gratitude, compassion and contentment on the other hand, serves to raise our vibration for the good of the collective whole. In the law of attraction, like attracts like, so what you put out in the world you will attract in return. This Full Moon, we can learn to tune our frequency by first learning how to love ourselves. Know that your energy is unique to you, but is overall a part of something bigger than yourself - bigger than your doubts, self-criticism and ego. You are the universe, and you are a part of the collective energy that comprises the Universe.
This Full Moon, we will be working with the energies of the Aquamarine crystal. Aquamarine evokes the purity of crystalline waters, and the exhilaration and relaxation of the sea. It is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go. In ancient lore, Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids, and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness.
Associated with the Throat chakra, Aquamarine helps overcome the fear of speaking, and is an excellent stone for teachers and presenters of all types. It relaxes speakers to a stage of consciousness in which they are fully aware of their own truths, wisdom and feelings, and able to articulate them with clarity and conviction. It also allows one to speak clearly and without anger in difficult situations. Aquamarine encourages the ideal of service to the world and to the development of a humanity attuned to healing. It emits a gentle and compassionate energy, promoting moderation and responsibility for ones' actions. It inspires judgmental people to be more tolerant, and helps those overwhelmed by responsibility to find order. You may find Aquamarine at the following stores:
