Full Moon in Aquarius (SuperMoon)
29th August 2015
By Kim Rastar Lovelace
(Using the Constellation of Ophiuchus)
The Full Moon reaches its peak on the 29th August at 19:37 pm
and in the 1st house (London).
The Full Moon this month takes place in the constellation of Aquarius and is also a Super Moon. Aquarius is the sign of the humanitarian and makes friends fairly easily, although in a detached and impersonal way. As sociable as she is, this Aquarian Moon likes her freedom and is not one to be restricted in any way, and therefore, she will strive for her freedom at any cost, which can lead her into irrational actions, with an unruly stubbornness, her greatest fear is being in emotional involvements that threaten her personal freedom.
In conjunction to Neptune this Moon can develop a very vivid imagination, this can work well in areas of creativity, psychic awareness and psychology, but negatively, this moon can create a web of self deception, elusiveness and lies. What we must beware of with this aspect, is that we are not leading ourselves or others ‘up the garden path’ into false hopes or dreams. There is also a tendency here towards isolation and living too much in our own heads. However, anyone that has a knack for writing, photography or anything creative can gain a lot from this aspect.
The Moon is also in opposition to Jupiter who is in opposition to Neptune! And this puts more emphasis on what we need to be aware of as Jupiter’s opposition to the Moon lacks much wisdom, which makes us vulnerable to false promises, over indulgence and unnecessary extravagance. It is vital that we watch our diets this Full Moon too. As Jupiter is also in opposition to Neptune, this creates unreliability and delusion, this aspect makes it a time of being vulnerable towards false prophets, guru’s or any ‘idealized’ personality, our egos are at stake and it would be very wise if we focus on the real truth of any situation at this time. Rose tinted glasses are purely for fun days; this is not a practical vision of the real world, especially in this day and age! Finances or business involvements need a realistic approach.
Chiron also in Aquarius has a high degree of idealism and is a time when we truly need to find our roots and keep ourselves grounded BIG TIME. Balance between idealism and practicality is strongly needed now, otherwise we will end up extremely disappointed and frustrated. As we approach the shadow of the coming Mercury Retrograde, it is especially important not to purchase any electrical items, or sign contracts. Communications are very frustrating during the Mercury Retrograde mode.
The Black Moon Lilith is amid a stellium of planets in Leo; Jupiter, Sun and Juno who are also conjunct to the North Node and Mercury in Virgo! As well as being the center of attention in this stellium of planets and points, Lilith is also in opposition to the Full Moon, Neptune and Chiron in Aquarius!
Black Moon Lilith in Leo has a very egoistical nature and a great fear of change and with all her aspects this month relationships can become a source of great suffering. Lilith becomes very dominating in conjunction to Juno, when normally she seeks equality. The Black Moon Lilith’s deep wounded soul intensifies her feeling of pain this Full Moon, which in return can lead her towards self sabotage or deeply hurting another, as her emotions will become volatile endangering her sense of reality by giving it to a lost cause.
Lilith is warning us that this is not a time to be overly optimistic regarding projects and relationships; we are at risk of foolishly following paths that do not reflect our own original way of thinking, there is a strong tendency towards self deception as well as a great confusion about the reality of life. It would be far better at this present time to stick to what we already know and to make use of this month’s Full Moon by working through all the hype by keeping ourselves grounded, solid and most importantly, true to ourselves, if we do not follow Lilith’s advice then it is more than likely that we could, metaphorically speaking, ‘sell our soul(s) to the ‘Devil’.

Super Full Moon in Aquarius
Happy Full Moon!
And it’s also a Supermoon too!! Supermoons are new and full moon alignments that happen extremely close to the earth. Because of this, their energetic effects will be the strongest of the year! The Sun is still in Leo and Moon will be moving into Aquarius for this super full moon alignment. Check your Google sky map apps. I know all the mainstream astrology articles are saying Pisces, but western mainstream astrology is not factual. It is not star based and so it does not reflect real star placements. 13 sign astrology has been my specialty for years and I am forever changed by knowing these distinctions.
Welcome to the Aquarius freedom loving Full Moon cycle! It’s all about you being you, and sharing your spiritual talents with humanity. Aquarius, in ancient Egypt, is known as Hapi, God of the annual flooding of the Nile. Hapi is a fertility God and is considered to be the ‘Father of the Gods’. He was known to be loving, caring and about peace. Hapi has breasts and a protruding belly to represent the fertility of the Nile. He is androgynous and here to remind us that We are One. His priests were responsible for measuring and predicting the water levels of the Nile. Something so many different life forms depended on. Water. For this reason Aquarius represents our scientific, higher mind and collective consciousness. Channels. Currency. Frequency and Air Waves. The Universal Mind. The water, that which unites us and aligns our intentions through waves of consciousness. At times, it can be electric and shocking! Massive social changes and events are happening to teach us how to evolve further. Everything is connected and we must learn how to adapt to current world affairs. For the next 2 weeks, look out for a few surprises in the world of human and civil laws and rights. Protests and movements are on the horizon. Hopefully we are moving in the direction of better understanding. Also prepare for utter chaos. Aquarius is the sign of unpredictability and things can go either way. Expect the unexpected and a few social upheavals to follow. To keep things calm visualize, focus, meditate only on positive intent.
We are now officially in the magical time between Summer and Fall. Aquarius, the electric water bearer, pours into humanity, the revelations that are needed at this time. We have to tune into our higher calling with Aquarius. Look for a new way to merge with your higher purpose. The Aquarius full moon will strengthen humanity, upheavals, innovations, technological advancements and inventiveness. Always use full moons for expanding and growing ideas that are dear to your heart. The collective shift in consciousness will continue. Studying astrology, moon cycles, crystals, herbs, and psychic/angelic (higher calling) communication are becoming more mainstream. People are tired of lower vibration subjects and activities. Aquarius is the highest level of the mental plane (Uranus). Where observation of the lower mind happens. For this reason, among others, Aquarius is the sign of the Alien Scientists. The Ancestors, their higher forms of technology and existence. Simultaneously Aquarius is the very old, Ancient and the new. Think back to the stories of Atlantis and Lemuria, Mu and Minoa.
*The Planetary Crystalline Grid & Rainbow Aura of the New Earth*
Aquarius is a mental air sign with water emotional abilities. Steer your mind and your emotions will follow. Cultivate your unique spiritual gifts and share them with the group. Aquarius is the sign of the unique individual and the social activist. Learn how best to balance your alone time and time with the community. It’s time for a change. Aquarius is the sign of experimentation and invention. Always remember you create your reality. If there is something you wish to improve, now is the time. Aquarius teaches us that using intuition, knowledge and metaphysical law we bring our inner world to life. Everything is energy, vibrations, harmonics, light and sound first. Aquarius also represents the ancestors and the origins of humans as light beings or aliens. The Annunaki. Don’t be afraid to expand your awareness. Pour libations and talk to your spirit guides. This is also a great time to do a series of spiritual baths and fasts for better circulation. This is the full moon highlighting our metaphysical skills! Astrology, reiki, lucid dreaming, yoga and all forms of healing are on the rise! Network to find the spiritual enlightenment you wish to seek. Celebrate your unique abilities and be thankful for your community as a whole. Now is a good time to upgrade your survival skills, gadgets and equipment. Also it’s always a good idea to stock up on water. Like the lotus flower, be in the world but not of it.
What’s happening to us now has already been done here before. Now it’s our turn to complete the cycle of evolutionary consciousness. Aquarius can help. Pisces can too, but the full moon won’t reach there for another month! The final Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse next month is a Pisces one. I’ve been doing 13 sign astrology for quite some time now. It’s always great to see more people take interest in learning astronomy astrology, which includes 13. The 13th sign is most definitely here to help astrology evolve along. Make sure to pour some libations and program your drinking water. Till next time, Happy Super-duper full moon.

when, why and what it means
The first day of the shadow occurs before Mercury goes retrograde, when it first reaches the low-water mark, the degree it will reach at its furthest point of retreat, just before going direct. The other end of the shadow occurs after it goes direct, on the day that Mercury achieves the same degree as when it started its retrograde.
Ergo, Mercury goes into its shadow on Aug 28–at 6º Virgo, (Left). Mercury officially goes retro on Sept. 17, (2nd from left). Mercury reaches the furthest degree it will it will retrograde (before it goes direct) on Oct 11 (third from left)–and not return to its previous highest degree of 21º Virgo until Oct 24, when it is free of its shadow and good to go. (right).
The shadow is a more comprehensive look at Mercury retrograde, and gives you a fairer account of the meaning of the psychologically blinding and historically disturbing trompe l'oeil. Many people report that the treachery, deception or difficulties of Mercury retro is even more virulent during the shadow periods.
All degrees are based on the 13-sign Zodiac, which is the same as astronomers use (as per the International Astronomic Union), and therefore is scientifically accurate, as opposed to the tropical, 12-sign view of astrology, practiced disastrously by astrologers since Ptolemy fixed the ecliptic to the seasons, ignoring the precession of the equinoxes, and doomed astrology into a joke.
If you’re not already familiar with this planetary phenomena, what does Mercury Retrograde mean?
1) Don’t buy anything important or sign any contracts during this time, there’s bound to be something you don’t know or have overlooked that will come back to bite you on the butt.
2) Be ready for snafus, breakdowns and screw-ups. Although there may be no more of these events than normal, the ones that DO happen will have a more devastating effect on you if you assume they can’t happen. This is the time to Be Prepared, get ready to be ready, and don’t take anything for granted. Murphy’s law— anything that can go wrong, will—is fully operational now.
3) Don’t start any new projects, relationships or jobs; this is not a time for moving forward. Any of the above situations should be entered into with the knowledge that you are repairing damage, clearing up loose ends, or stepping back to get perspective so that, ultimately, you can move forward.
4) This is a time for reflection, regeneration and regrouping. As Mercury starts to go backwards, look over your shoulder, consider what you have done, even turn around to reaffirm what you thought you had already passed. Mine THOSE opportunities, look at what has gone before, your body of work; don’t go looking for the grand slam or a big breakthrough. Be satisfied with “fixing what has been broken” cleaning out your closet, and reacquainting yourself with old friends, colleagues and lovers.
5) This retrograde, starting with Mercury falling into its shadow on Aug 28, also culminates with the full super Blood Moon Tetrad and an eclipse. The deflationary economic and international crisis will deepen as Mercury joins a retro Venus collapse and Saturn enters Scorpio, and profits, savings and all hope will be washed away in a flood of tears. Mercury is the truth of our lies, and the realization of our dishonesty and hypocrisy.

Leo: Pride and Passion
Leos are born Aug 10-Sept 15
"What immortal hand or eye can frame thy fearful symmetry?" asked William Blake, when faced with the nature of the cat. Leo is nature in the raw, nature as ruler, natural law and the natural self. Leo makes its own rules, lives by its own nature, which is to terrify the rest of us. MORE
The Bubble Bursts
Above: Aug. 28, 2015: The day the dollar goes into Mercury's shadow. The overvalued and debt-fueled bull market is dead. The beginning of REALIZATION begins as titanic forces beyond our control start to move us into a deflationary economy, for the first time in 85 years.
China Leads the World into DEFLATION
One of the most interesting things about the capitalist crisis is that the stars don't view it as a bad thing. The collapse of the financial markets is often historically accompanied by positive planetary positions, as if the crisis also enlightens and purges the markets of their inherent distortions and insane greed. In previous economic collapses, it involves a favorable connection with Mercury, where our intellect punctures through the bubble, and truth is revealed. The losses are the prelude to revelation, and ultimately, freedom. What's bad for the banks is actually good for the Cosmos, and by design, our world. MORE

The End of the Bull Market in China
Pluto retrograde is opposed Sun and Mars (see chart), which means stagnation and loss. China and Greece are now experiencing this transit full bore.
Right now, Jupiter, our lucky gas giant, is opposed the natal Sun of the USA's horoscope. July is also the first contact of Pluto square the USA's Uranus, which starts to unravel the bullshit. Pluto is coming back in November to bury any ideas we entertain about a quick, easy way out of the current mess. This is a loss of not only our national identity and unity, but a collapse of our good fortune:
"The current circumstances are not designed to increase your prosperity. The male leadership that has led us to this crisis will be humiliated. Prepare for a period that will deplete your material assets. Your generosity is likely to benefit the wrong people or be wasted in worthless endeavors."

Jupiter and Immigration
Those individuals who spend a major part of their life roving other countries, deal in some way with foreigners or simply live far away from where they were born, have Sagittarius prominent in their charts or have a very active ninth house, and/or have Jupiter prominently placed in their chart, by aspect or near the angles.
