Although there are many individuals who are aware of their Sun sign, and a few who know their Ascendant, Moon sign and more, there are even more who are unaware that, truth be told, we contain all the signs within in us.
What? Huh? From the fact that we are stardust, made manifest for a journey through life in this reality, to the fact that every part of our physical body is governed by one of the signs of the zodiac, we are the microcosm (little universe) of the macrocosm (the Universe itself). Mind-boggling, huh?
A few weeks ago, I was talking to a friend of mine about her astrology chart. I can’t really remember how the subject came up, but I said, “You do realize that you sometimes pull energy and traits of your opposite sign to you and use them?” That blew her away! She happens to be an Aquarius and the thought of having anything to do with her opposite sign, Leo, shocked her. I knew that she’s always disliked most Leos, finding them too egotistical. I then reminded her that everyone is a mirror for us, as we are for them. That really caused her to pause and think about it.
That’s the truth of it, especially where our Sun signs are concerned. (It’s also true for the signs our other planets are in, but to a lesser degree.) I’m a Taurus, but I can be as secretive as any Scorpio (my opposite sign). I can also be as vengeful and spiteful, at times, as some Scorpios are. Then there’s the interest in the mysterious, the regenerative ability, and a few more Scorpio traits that I’ve manifested over the years, at times. We all do it. It’s just that most are unaware of doing it.
I’ve had Scorpios around me most of my life. My Mother was a double-Scorpio; I had a best friend in most of junior high and high school who was also a double-Scorpio; my husband of 28 years is a Scorpio. So, I’ve always been pretty aware of the traits and have recognized when they manifest in me. For other people, if you haven’t had this amount of exposure to your sign, I’d say learn about it. If you find you have an adverse reaction to people of the opposite sign, ask yourself, “What is this person mirroring back to me?” You may be surprised at the answer. It could be a real learning experience that helps you gain insight into yourself.
Meanwhile, we have a Full Moon in Aquarius happening on Monday, August 3rd, at 11:59 a.m. EDT.
The Moon in Aquarius, by itself, is a very imaginative placement, only heightened by the fact the Moon is Full. It brings positive achievements in the arts and gives the chance to extend ones lifestyle into a variety of interesting situations.
The combination of the Sun being in Leo while the Moon’s in Aquarius, gives intuition and the ability to judge human nature quickly. There are marked occult tendencies along with much determination and willpower.
This Full Moon can give the desire to seek out unusual relationships, particularly if the involve the magickal, mystical side of Life. Romantic relationships will be based on mutual interests. Whether in romance or business, a stable partner is needed to bring out the best of ones creative imagination but also serves as a brake when ideas are impractical.
Use this Full Moon to clear a path, removing obstacles and restrictions, to what speaks to your uniqueness, independence, and freedom in all areas of your life.
