Full Moon and Prenumbral Lunar Eclipse Tonight
Full Moon and Prenumbral Eclipse in Aquarius (13 degrees, 43 minutes)
8:55 and 8:59 pm, Eastern Daylight Time, August 5th 2009
I thought it might be helpful for people to know about the natural energies available to us tonight as we do our Wednesday Night Clearings at 8pm EDT. For those of you who are new to this, I have been encouraging Reiki students, light workers, and others to participate in clearings my Reiki Master, Kathleen Milner, started over a year ago. Hundreds of people have been participating. It is a powerful way to heal yourself and heal the planet. Reference the Wednesday Night Clearings on the menu above for more information about how to get involved. You will feel an immediate boost in your energy by participating. You do not have to be a Reiki practitioner to do the clearings, they are for anybody to use. And you can use them any time!!
Just 55 minutes after we start tonight there will be a Full Moon in Aquarius (8:55 EDT), and 4 minutes later a Prenumbral Lunar Eclipse (8:89 EDT. This Eclipse is the third in a row in the past six weeks. So we will be feeling the overall effect of these three eclipses (2 lunar and one solar) for the next 2 weeks.
The effects we will be able to feel and use tonight to further our healing are interesting. Aquarius heralds the call for change, and we awaken to the fact that one small person can make a big difference. In true Aquarian fashion, this is a night to step into the role of mentor and renounce the attraction to focusing only on your own life. By giving to others we can bring the vision of upliftment for humanity into being. It all starts with us, in this moment.
The other planets are in places to support this kind of change. Neptune (compassionate intention) Jupiter (the benefactor) and Chiron (the healer) are also in Aquarius to help support humanity and get us out of ego/Mercury (thoughts and speech) in Virgo (service)/Pluto in practical Capricorn, Venus in compassionate Cancer/action oriented Mars in open-minded Gemini and Uranus in Pisces urging awakened consciousness – all invite us to rest deeply in the realization the we are not our egos, we are part of something so much bigger.
This is a full moon of speaking out, engaging in the politics around you and bringing an enlightened state into reality. One way to do this is to bring meditation into the forefront of our lives, and in the global community.
Tonight I’d like to encourage everyone to meditate after doing the clearings from 8:45 to 9:10 to help seal the energies released by this potent and promising astrological configuration. That would be a great way for us help.
