Creativity & Consciousness :: Full Moon Aquarius

aquarius full moon

The Aquarius Full Moon was yesterday, Thursday, August 18 around 2:30 a.m. PST and offered themes of bringing consciousness to the emotional realm through erratic emotions or a desire to use them to bring about creativity. Aquarius is associated with the planet Uranus which rules spontaneity, quirkiness, and the non-traditional (such as astrology).  Though ultimately it wants to awaken us (think Kundalini) into more consciousness. This moon was also conjunct the asteroid Athena, sextile Uranus, and square the Vertex often called "Destiny's Gate." Athena is the goddess of wisdom and knowledge mixed with intuition. Her conjunction with the moon may show us insights into our warrior spirit. The Vertex square offers a possible fated relationship or direction, so I was certainly  paying close attention for any clues (I found two playing cards this week on the street.)
