This Aquarius full moon has the energy to help amplify change, in the form of a universal revolution. As a zodiacal sign, it carries specific qualities - with the power and energy of the full moon backing these qualities, they can be illuminated and use for the benefit of navigating this changing world, if understood and implemented from a place of balance. Aquarius' most prominent qualities are the capacity to do things differently than the standards in place, in a way that encourages growth and innovation - to see things from a new perspective, with full spectrum thinking. With the added influence of Leos energy as the lions season comes to a close for 2021, there is a strong current of creativity to assist in visions being manifested.
Understanding the energies of each new and full moon, lend to the practice of herbalism, a deeper vein of alchemy. When one can cultivate a medicine making process that utilizes the energies and influence of these cycles, a truly profound formula for healing can be cultivated. As I have reflected upon in past blog posts, 'Astro-herbalism' is a form of synastry between human, plant and planetary elements; ex. the full moons influence on water, and how that influences human mood/body, etc. Below, you will find a reflection on the specifics of Aquarian herbs, imbalances related to this zodiacal signature and how to best support yourself during aquarian new and full moon phases.
