Once in a Blue Moon in Aquarius

Posted on Leave a comment

The second full moon in Aquarius has us no longer asking for freedom but demanding it. This moon leaves nothing hidden; revealing our truth. Will you walk with yours?

Rather we are aware or not, we are 70% water. If the moon has the power to shift the tides in the ocean it only makes sense that the same would be done within us. Therefore, it’s very handy to know what energy is most potent during times like the full moons so that we can align our desires with that of the universe. It helps us to innerstand our our deepest emotions (which is ruled by water) and how we relate to our outer world. There is science behind heightened energies on full moons. Tap in with the energy so that you may co-create with it.

What is a Full Moon anyways?

A full moon is when the sun and moon directly oppose each other and the earth lies “between” them giving us the moon in its fullest most enticing light. It is the part of the lunar cycle which lasts about 28 days. In its conclusion the sun moves into the next zodiac. However, the moon changes zodiacs about every 2-3 days. It is a sacred time in the moon cycle where we can check inventory on how the seeds we planted during the last new moon have come to fruition.

Full moons are extremely powerful for releasing because the moon mirrors the energy within us of being full and being ready to purge what no longer serves our highest good. It is also a powerful time for setting intentions due to the space we’ve made with surrendering to letting go. Take time to work with this power on the day of the full moons. Don’t worry if you miss it! The energy remains potent three days before and three days after.

The Eccentric Blue Moon in Aquarius

A blue moon occurs only 7 times in every 19 year cycle. It is when there is a fourth full moon in one season. Therefore giving us two full moons in one zodiac. Powerful right? This full moon is taking place Sunday, August 22nd. It peaks at 7:02am CST at 29 degrees of Aquarius in conjunction with Jupiter which is retrograding in Aquarius. The first full moon took place on July 23rd at 1 degree Aquarius. Thus, this water bearer energy is washing away layers of skin not just on the surface but deep within that we didn’t realize needed to be shedded. Although this has been kind of a painful process for some it has been majorly liberating along side letting go of the responsibility of shit that never belonged to us.

With the last new moon being in fiery Leo partnering with the lions gate portal on 8/8. This energy showed us our divine core truths and to trust in our very own unique signature of the universe. Reclaiming power we have given away due to childhood traumas, fears, limitations and downright illusions. This second moon in Aquarius is coming through with fresh energy to clear out the last of these major cycles. So that it can make room for the future innovations and visions that Aquarius brings. It is showing its face with rebellious energy to the status quo, fearlessly disrupting what is widely accepted for expansion into a better future. Once again breaking the old mould so that our newest truest selves have space to thrive.

6 PLANETS IN RETROGRADE? WHATCHU TALM BOUT WILLIS

Along with these rare aspects happening there are also 6 retrogrades taking place. Don’t freak out though, although retrogrades have gained a bad rep they are so necessary for our growth and wellbeing. This time is so fertile for retrospecting the beliefs we have consciously and subconsciously agreed on. With them playing with the energies of the full moon this give us even more of a super power to manifest and release.

Jupiter the planet of expansion is retrograding in… you guessed it Aquarius gifting us the power to expand in new ways that we’ve never tried. Opening up and awakening pieces of ourselves that further serve us on future endeavors. Saturn the big daddy planet of structure and discipline in also retrograding in Aquarius causing us to question the limits we’ve held onto for comfort. This a great time to change routines and implement new ways of organization that give us an outlet to channel this new expansion.

The constellation of Aquarius blessing us with all its fresh freeing energy

Uranus (which rules Aquarius) is retrograde in taurus. Meaning the planet of surprise and free-thinking is in grounded and stubborn taurus giving us stamina in our ground breaking ideas and shifts. Taurus wants to ground our out of the box dreams and this retrograde is showing us what has kept us from that physical fruition.

Dreamy Neptune the planet of illusion is retrograding in its home sign of pisces. This is taking us deep within to see where we have been deceitful with our own truths keeping us from the enlightenment that Neptune can bring. Also showing us where the root of our escapism and addictions come from. With all the Aquarius energy accompanying it we have the bravery to look at our darkness we’ve avoided and integrate it with this planet of oneness working in our favor.

Pluto the planet of shadows, depth, death and rebirth is retrograding in Capricorn the father of the zodiac. This energy is one of regenerating our inner father and divine masculine energy. On a grand scheme we are shifting from a patriarchy paradigm to a matriarchy paradigm. As we know, so within so without. We are allowing our divine feminine to express her voice and shifting our masculine from a place of control to place of protection for her to feel safe to do so.

Last but not least we have our wounded healer Chiron which is technically a comet not a planet but still has a powerful effect on our energy bodies because the universe is all a reflection of the aspects within us. Chiron is retrograding in Aries. Giving us the warrior energy we need to finally stand up to what has wounded us. This is understanding our pain as our purpose while also holding ourselves and others accountable for causing these ailments. So that we can truly move on with peace to what has hurt us.

Spirit is making way for so many portals for us. Will you dare to step through?

Rituals for this Powerful moon

Automatic writing from your subconscious mind

The subconscious works a lot like a computer program and enjoys using a computer to communicate. In tandem with airy Aquarius which relates to mental energy and technological expansion a great way to tap in with this energy is to do an automatic writing on a computer.

Step one

Set a timer for ten minutes. Close your eyes down and place your full awareness in your breath.

Step two

Set the intention to only observe and not attach to any thoughts that may rise. Imagine then like traffic, watch the cars go by. Don’t hop in front of them or try to hitch a ride. Just be the observer. Be aware of any patterns you notice. Feel into your body and aura and take note of how you feel. Don’t try analyze or internalize it, just make a note. KEEP BREATHING!

Step three

If you followed the directions above correctly you should be left with clearer channel for the exercise. Sit down at a laptop if you have one a full key board is super helpful with this exercise, but do with what you have.

Step four

Start the letter from your subconscious with Dear conscious mind, etc. And literally step out of your conscious thought (the meditation was meant to help you with this, if still feeling to dense to flow repeat step one and two) and allow you subconscious to spill all it has for you. Type without worrying about what is being said. Read it when finished. This is a powerful exercise for direct communication into your beautiful mind. Have fun kids!

Everything You Need For the Leo New Moon + Lion’s Gate Portal

Posted on 1 Comment

Are you ready to step into the Lion’s gate 8/8 portal? A guide for the initiation.

What is a New Moon?


A new moon is the breath of fresh air after a full lunar cycle. A lunar cycle happens about every 28 days. A new moon is a great time to hone in on the lessons from the prior lunar cycle so that you can truly integrate them stepping forward into the current energies being bestowed upon you. New moons are also a very powerful time to set your intentions for what you want to implement and learn in the new cycle.


How Does the Moon Being in Leo Affect us?


Leo is the zodiac of the sun itself. In its divine form it is ultimate warmth, unique truth, sacred confidence and a true giver of self. This energy from the sun being in its native sign since July 23rd has driven us back into all of our lions hearts. Illuminating the truths that shine through us straight from our soul.


This energy has blessed us with the divine confidence to trust our inner guidance and to truly beam our lights fully without fear.


Its really demonstrated just how calculated spirit is with leo coming after cancer, the mother of the zodiac. Nurturing ourselves and going within so that our seed has the endurance to breakthrough and expose itself to the world in leo.


This moon isn’t about perfection, it’s about loving yourself through all your phases ENOUGH to share. To just be is true freedom. Leo is demanding you to be free in all that you are. Spirit created all of us with our own celestial blueprint that ONLY we have. The leo new moon is asking us to STAND in it no matter what phase it’s in.

Alrighty Nerds, Let’s Put Our Goggles on and Get into The Sciencey Scienceness Aspects


The leo new moon is happening on 8/8 at 16° Leo and is in conjunct with Mercury at 23° Leo. Which is when two planets look at each other like “aye you fine, lets be aligned” and they line up directly which blends their vibrations and work together.


The moon represents our emotions, while mercury represents communication, logic and
rationality. With these two aspects working together it gives us an opportunity to look at the emotional truths we’ve told ourselves and decide if they are truly logical when it comes to our core truth.

It also is helping us articulate our emotions and channel them in an outlet to be
expressed. We are recognizing how vital it is to just be so that our fellow humans can feel
comfortable in just being too.


Although Leo is the sign of the self it loves to basked in and to give off its light. Together we
shine much brighter in our authenticity then we ever could apart with masks.

What is this Lion’s Gate Portal Everybody is Talking About?

As you’ve probably heard this moon is on Leo crack because it is aligned with the peak of the
lions gate portal on 8/8. The lions gate portal is the rising of the star sirius, the brightest star in the sky that disappears from our night sky for a period of time before rising and thus activating the lions gate portal.


Sirius is associated with liberation and its rising was linked with the Nile flooding in ancient Khamit. Giving birth to a very fertile time spiritually because Sirius is considered the sun of our spirit. Light codes being downloaded, DNA being activated and consciousness evolving rapidly are all heightened greatly during this time.

The numerology of 8/8 is an infinite energy of success, progress and achievement. Which is
also super aligned with all the leo energy.


This is a time to get serious about what you’re manifesting. This energy is a surge of fertility for our dreams and desires. Make sure it is aligned with your inner truth because the energy is powerful and a great gift. As we know, with great gifts comes great responsibility. Which goes back into how calculated spirit is because in the next couple weeks we will enter organized and
responsible virgo grounding all of the activations from precious and vigorous leo.


A Ritual for the New Moon in Leo


Step one: Write your intentions on a sheet on paper

Step two: anoint the paper with a blessed oil to help activate the manifestation (orange, lemon, & cinnamon are great for emanating leo energy) but use what you got intention is more powerful than anything.

Step three: pick a candle (white, orange or yellow are preferred but again intention is everything.
The most powerful part of this is the flame) (also life hack, dollar tree has multi colored long neck candles great for altar work and rituals)

Step four: put your written intentions under the candle. Say a prayer and light the candle.

Step five: focus on the candle light, project your visualizations onto it gratefully asking the fire to assist in alchemizing this visual to reality. Pay attention to how the flame burns.


Tall & strong: your confidence will bring this to fruition

Dancing wildly: your manifestations foundation is molding to be able to bring this to fruition

Dim: requires more belief within you to manifest


A Ritual for the Lion’s Gate Portal


Rise with sun and meditate with its warming light. Become aware of the light codes absorbing into your skin. Ask it to speak to you. Write and share the messages given. Also visualize it activating your manifestations like crops from the sun rays of father creator.


When night falls, meditate in the light of shining sirius. Imagine your vision in the womb of the night sky growing and being given life to by mother creator.
