This August full moon is full of power and will bring forward a resurgence of lifeforce. It is 'Go Time" my loves, and in the beginning of this month the transition into these new energies and directives could have felt like pressure or uncertainty. Everyone collectively felt and received an intuitive push from the soul to step into the new self that has been unfolding this entire year.
Here we are. The rise of the sun. The theme for this full moon is positive masculine outward forces that will bring new energies into self-expression, new goals, and dharma. A key aspect of self-expression is possession. The movement forward asks for ownership of who you are becoming. Own and take possession of your greatness and rise into it. It is a shift of consciousness.
The energy is working and transforming the earth element. We have water, air, and earth working to transform into a new being. This point is when the evolutionary outgoing path meets the involuntary ingoing path. The evolution of the self meets the inner self for an outward expression. The material becomes more stable and muddles less. Maya (illusion) is overcome through owning self, the gift of Leo is the separation from Anima Mundi-universal soul.
The individual self is strengthened, dharma has greater footing, clarity, and the rise of the soul-sun moves forward with vigor, courage, and brighter horizons. These energies are working to manifest on the outer plane. There has been so much energy earlier this year, developing the levels of consciousness, and awakening dharma. Here it is new energy moving to develop dharma and gifts outward. These energies have also developed the individuated self (unique soul self). This lunation is masculine dominant energy within feminine creative power. This level of shakti moves the soul self to create within new realms. For many of you, this will affirm new aspects of self.
Many of you will have desires, and dreams reach new forms of manifested reality. It is a fortunate lunation, marked by supporting planetary placements. Jupiter will play a key role in uplifting the Sun and Mars, while the moon will work with illuminating what lies behind Maya (illusion). This revealing is unifying of the self within dharma. Do not fight the flow, surrender into it. Allow the self to be carried away and allow the illumination to purify the dross.
There is a unique energy of spiritualization that is transforming the interrelationship of self and others. This will work through material life, it will work through all facets of relationship. Some may feel tempted to resort to past placation or pleasure-seeking. Follow the heart of creation, nourish what is arising, this can be done by ownership of all aspects of self. Make love to your ‘lesser nature’, woo the traits that aren’t as pretty.
Again ownership of self will raise one into new heights. Move beyond what you perceive and how you are perceived. Silence and devotion to this new you is required. That means applying directive to the positive force of masculine energy into outward action. This can be in any area of your life, but your commitment to stabilizing these new creative forces and the energy that is moving is important. The individuated self will seek new heights.
To work these energies in asana, open chair twist will work with the elements and with the actions of the planets during this full moon.
