Today is a Full Moon in Aquarius! This full moon is on the edge of a partial eclipse (unfortunately not visible to us Earthlings), beginning an eclipse cycle that is ushering us swiftly into a transformative new phase of life (the next and strongest eclipse will be September 1st, followed by another on September 16th).

Aquarius helps us to see the bigger picture and, in doing so, to—perhaps suddenly—recognize the importance of releasing the old and cumbersome to make way for something new. If you feel in need of guidance, let your intuition lead you today, and pay attention to synchronicities that pop up. Don’t get swept up in trying to figure things out; try to trust that the answers are there for you if you will allow them to be.

Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, has big influence on this moon and offers us the opportunity to break free of old shackles and rewrite the narratives of our lives. Uranus reminds us that *anything* is possible, as long as we seek to let go of that which ties us down. This is SO often easier said than done, but we’ve got luminous lunar and planetary support on our side right now! The challenge you’re invited to focus on today is to practice not allowing anything energetic that comes at you stick. Release what comes in every moment by allowing it to pass through you, perhaps envisioning yourself as a mountain and it as a drifting cloud. This could be a feeling, a rumination, a remark from someone else (and the subsequent feeling), anything that you might typically feel affected by and perhaps buy into. If you can play with allowing these things to pass as you experience them today, you may find that it becomes rapidly easier to let go of some long-labored-under and old stories!

A full moon is always a good time to celebrate the things in your life that you have achieved or are grateful for, rather than focusing on the things that you lack. Try to imagine for today that the life you really want is easier to manifest than you thought. It is time to dream a bigger dream that includes more of what you want! Being flexible in your attachment to thoughts and things, and trusting in the universe and yourself, will help to get you there.
