The full moon in Aquarius is a powerful time for divination. All full moons float insights to the surface of our consciousness. But this full moon is also a full lunar eclipse, and that multiplies its potential exponentially for bringing things to light about who you are and what you want in your life. It’s a time when you can affirm your full humanity, quirks and all. No matter your faith path, it’s a spiritually significant time for creative inspiration about your dreams and desires.
This full moon is happening during the month governed by Leo, an energetic, creative fire sign. It’s a time when you can look into your heart (the sun sign Leo’s fiery energy) and into your mind (Aquarius’ air) in order to discover what you need for a better life. With the moon in Aquarius, you have access to a type of detached emotion that allows you to see the big picture. This detachment may help you find long-term resolution to issues that have been close to your heart for a while.
Some astrologers call this moon the “blessing moon.” So when creating your divinatory question, you can ask yourself what blessing you want to bring into your life? What do you need to fulfill your future? What do you dare to dream?
Aquarius is an air sign. Since the element air rules mental or intellectual pursuits, a “Books” divination would be appropriate for your oracle during this full moon (pp. 60 – 63 in The World is Your Oracle). It offers a great opportunity to unearth new insights into your life. I’ve seen this simple divination amaze participants in my workshops by telling them in words printed on paper exactly what they needed to hear.
Here’s a great example: Last year one of my students was struggling with the question of whether she should take a supervisory position that appeared to be the next step on her career path. It would have meant a promotion for her, but it wasn’t a position that sparked her enthusiasm. She chose a book randomly from the stack I had brought to class that night. The insight she received was specific to an almost spooky degree.
She found her divination in a subsection of the book entitled “Does the Game You’re Playing Serve Your Life?” My student clarified that the book she had chosen defined any life activity as a game, including work and career. Her oracle read: “Do not play a game that will take you away from your life’s purpose no matter what prizes are being offered.” My student felt that this divination hardly needed interpretation, since it straightforwardly warned her not to take the job despite its supposed advancement.
As someone who follows an alternate faith path, do you feel comfortable learning about it in a group environment? Are you more of a solo practitioner?
