Aquarius Lunar Eclipse – Humbling Serving Humanity
There are times when we’re all called to forget ourselves and contribute to something greater. The Aquarius lunar eclipse and full moon of this lunar cycle is one of those times. This will take place on Monday August 7 at 12:11 pm MDT.
This Leo lunar cycle has been about embodying our healthy Self-expression, the expression of the deepest parts of ourselves, our gifts to the world. Perhaps this is a renewed version of ourselves that’s been recently refined. Since the new moon this has been taking place on an instinctual level, and therefore has necessarilypossessed a certain amount of selfishness.
But the Aquarius partial lunar eclipse is calling us to move beyond the confines of our own needs. To begin to realize how our unique self contributes to the overall evolution of humanity. Because we all do contribute to the progress of life and the Cosmos in one way or the other, either negatively or positively. For at the end of the day, there is but one consciousness.
What’s at stake
The state of affairs of this planet is reaching a critical head, and “The New Age should be one in which people learn to use the power generated by human togetherness and group interplay – that is, to use it harmoniously for the welfare of the whole of which all individuals are part, humanity and the planet Earth. This has never been achieved and only very rarely attempted. Mankind today must make a thorough and irresistible attempt, or be nearly destroyed – except for a creative ‘remnant’ of seed-persons who would have to begin again from new foundations.” – Dane Rudhyar in his interpretation of the Sabian symbol for this eclipse.
I’ve quoted that at length because it is incredibly relevant for this lunar eclipse and our current times. How can we cooperate with all of our human community in an effort to serve the planet and help transform it into a sustainable model?
This is an individual question and the answer doesn’t need to be anything bigger than what we, individually, can achieve. For we are all one part of the whole and we all have different role to play within that. Even if, for example, our role is only to give love and care to one person in our life who desperately needs it. In this case of need, increasing the amount of loving energy in our world is something that the planet desperately needs.
But whatever your role is, wherever the expression of your Self and deepest gifts are most suited, is where humanity needs you most right now. And if we’re open to receive, this lunar eclipse is able to provide some rather large pointers in that direction. And perhaps more than anything, we can receive renewed faith in the path that we’re on, and how we’re fulfilling our Divine role within this Cosmic dance of life.
All the blessings on the journey of life and Self-realization.
