Aquarius Full Moon, August 13, 2011

You say you want a revolution

Well, you know

We all want to change the world

You tell me that it's evolution

Well, you know

We all want to change the world

But when you talk about destruction

Don't you know that you can count me out

Don't you know it's gonna be all right

all right, all right

The Beatles

While the Sun moves through a new zodiac sign every month, the Moon travels at a different pace, visiting all 12 signs of the zodiac each month.   At the time of the Full Moon, the Moon stands opposite the Sun, fully reflecting the sunlight and transforming it into the cool silvery light of the night sky.   Full moons offer us a chance to reflect on the Sun's energy.   When the Sun is in the sign of Leo, the Full Moon occurs in the opposite sign of Aquarius.   At the Full Moon, we are asked to become aware of how the two opposite signs complement, rather than fight, each other so we can use their energies in the best possible ways.

The Sun in Leo engages our creativity, our child-like playfulness, our need to express ourselves in a warm, glowing way.   Leo is the Sun-King, the Sun-Queen - the epitome of summer and life. The opposite sign of Aquarius is a wintery sign (in the northern hemisphere), a time of crystal clear, cold nights when the universe is spread out before our wondering eyes.   In Leo, we look at our life here on Earth and create.   In Aquarius, we look to the Heavens and wonder.

Right now, Aquarius takes on a greater significance, because we are slowly moving into the Age of Aquarius, when that constellation will rise at the Spring Equinox.   At the moment, we are still in the tidal eddies created by the changing ages.   As Pisces flows out and Aquarius surges in, we find ourselves in the chaotic moment of endings and beginnings.   We also find ourselves challenged to become a conscious part of Earth's evolution.   Thomas Berry, the great environmentalist, says we are entering a geological age where humanity is the power that will bring about the destruction of our planet or its re-birth. The Beatles got it right: this is not about destroying the old system (patriarchy) but rather taking what is best from the old and uniting it with the new.   This revolution that is coming our way is supposed to be a peaceful revolution -- otherwise we will re-create the very things that need to die.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
