Let's Play in the Aquarian Mindfield
Be a full bucket pulled up the dark way of a well, then lifted out into light. Rumi
You have a king inside who listens for what delights the soul. Rumi
The full Moon in Leo, with the Sun in Aquarius, will occur on Friday, January 29th (6:10 pm PST) and Saturday, January 30th (1:18am EST).
With our two luminaries in the signs of creative expression (Leo) and group consciousness (Aquarius), I thought it might be fun for all of us to play, another Leo trait, in the Aquarian mindfield - together.
How we're going to play is with the imagination; where we'll play is in a dimension of the imaginal world, the collective unconscious.
This is the beginning of an Aquarian experiment I would like you all to participate in. If you like what you read, please consider passing this along to like-minded friends and groups, so we can have as many people participating in this experiment as possible.
The first part of the experiment occurs at this full Moon. The second part begins at the Aquarian new Moon in two weeks.
The Cosmic Story gives us very specific information about what kind of energy is available during these celestial events. If we understand how to read them, we can use the energies to create change, not just in our personal lives, but in our collective life as well.
So this full Moon in Leo is a response to January 15th's Solar Eclipsenew Moon in Capricorn. What new ideas about your purpose and our collective life came to you? How do you see our civilization evolving? How do you help it happen?
Now before we can plant these new ideas in the collective consciousness, we have to find out what our part is in these new ideas. What is your specific purpose? What do you know that no one else can do in just your situation, in just your way?
The Moon symbolizes the psychosomatic foundation of the personality, our body and soul which senses, feels, and intuits. It contains our unconscious complexes, as well as our connection to the Imagination. The Moon shows us how we like to be nurtured, and how we naturally act and react in situations. The Moon in Leo opens us to our fiery creativity, our sense of personal power and our capacity to play.
Leo is the sign most concerned with what C.G. Jung called the "individuation process'. What he meant was that there is an inner instinct within each of us to find our uniqueness and our destiny. This is a spiritual archetype because the Self energizes the search to remember that we are also Spirit. Each of us is called to be a hero/ine in our own lives by trying to find out who that unique Self is. And then to express it!
Leo's task is to establish a connection to the Self and let it express Itself through our human personality. Leo refuses to forget that she is the Queen/he is the King and acts accordingly. Leo delights in shining light, sharing love and living truth. Leo also descends to pride and pretense, domination and control. It's our choice which Leo gifts we exhibit.
