Shooting Star would be doing this Full Moon ceremony on her own as her sister, Snowy Owl, had travelled to the Council of Twelve to meet with the Star Walkers, Arista and Dauphin. The day before the young women had been to visit The Shaman and he told Snowy Owl the Star Walkers had some important information to share about the New Moon that was occurring in fifteen sunrises. She immediately went to the Standing One who guarded the magic feather capes put hers on and took flight into the Universe.
Shooting Star had done the ceremonies alone before but always felt unsure. As she walked the path to the Star Temple she thought “wouldn’t it be nice if Runs With The Salmon was there waiting for me.” The young man was now living on the other side of Turtle Island but the Ripe Berries Time was his birth month and sometimes he returned to his own tribe to celebrate. As Shooting Star entered the Star Temple she heard his voice greeting her with enthusiasm. Runs With was just as happy to be here as Shooting Star was happy to see him. The friends smiled at each other as they settling in the Sacred Circle to hear Sister Moon’s message.
Sister Moon said “You are the people Grandfather Sun and I wanted to be here to receive this message. This is the Friendship Full Moon to honour and appreciate those people in your life who accept you unconditionally. Shooting Star the Animal Totem who is guiding me is your personal guide, Otter. He reminds us what is of true value. He asks you all to be joyful as you share your hopes, wishes and dreams with those of like mind. He asks you to thank those people who are helping you to build the New Earth where everyone feels connected in love.”
“And Runs With, your Animal Totem guide the Salmon, is working with Grandfather Sun. The Salmon clan work together with determination and perseverance to create the new. At this Full Moon it is time for the two leggeds to come together and make a commitment to creating a new way of being with each other and the world. It is time for them to remember who they really are, a spark of the Divine. Great Mystery has been waiting a long time for the two leggeds to awaken. The Time is now.”
Shooting Star and Runs With thanked Sister Moon for her message and then thanked each other for their special friendship. Together they knew they could change the world.
Aquarius is the sign of friendship, group activities, and humanitarian causes. It is associated with the collective consciousness but also individual freedom. It is also the sign that rules the sciences, astronomy, innovation, and invention. Like all Air Signs it is dualistic but in a positive way if we can find a balance. Aquarius is connected to the healing energy of the Universe and all the modalities that channel that energy so balance and wholeness can be experienced. It is also that sign that rules astrology, the planetary dance. The key phrase for Aquarius is “I KNOW” not in an intellectual way but INTUITIVELY. It is that voice in your head that tells you when you should not do something and directs you to do something else. Aquarius is Cosmically Connected. It is the sign associated with sharing our spiritual gifts with the Universe and this Full Moon is asking us to do that so the world will change. Heaven knows it needs to.
The ruler for the Moon at this Lunation is Uranus at 16 degrees Aries. This planet is called the Awakener and in Aries supports us to break through to the authentic self and at the same time supporting others to do the same. Uranus is trine the Sun (our identity) at 18 degrees Leo and Mercury (our thoughts) at 20 degrees Leo. The sign of Leo is the ego or the heart and is the ruler of the Sun. Uranus (breakthrough) is sextile the Moon (Soul) at 18 degrees Aquarius (freedom). Trines are ease and flow and sextiles are opportunities. Easy energy. BUT the Universe always throws us a curve ball.
Before Uranus was sighted in 1781 Saturn (limitation and restriction) had rulership over Aquarius. At this Full Moon he is at 16 degrees Scorpio (release and transformation) AND SQUARE (finding new ways of doing things) the Sun and Mercury in Leo (the ego mind) and the Moon in Aquarius (the Cosmic Self). It is a T Square (feeling backed into a corner). The only way out is to embrace the transformational power of Saturn in Scorpio and break free from limitation and restriction. Saturn is inconjunct Uranus so the need to break free is emphasised. The inconjunct aspect asks us to find new ways of doing things because there is no other choice.
As much as the Universe throws us curves it also is giving us an easy way out of the T Square. Saturn in Scorpio (healing and release) is trine Chiron (the healer) at 16 degrees Pisces (the Rainbow Bridge to Wholeness). Chiron in Pisces connects us to the ONENESS OF ALL. So maybe this Aquarius Full Moon will wake the ‘‘two leggeds” up and we can all see ourselves in the other. It is time.
The Animal Totems for our current Aquarius Super Full Moon (as our story told us) are Salmon, determination and perseverance to create the new, for the Sun In Leo and Otter, curiosity, playfulness and sharing, for the Moon in Aquarius. The Clan Mother for the Sun in Leo is She Who Heals. She is the guardian of serving the truth and keeper of the healing arts including the plant spirits. She reminds us of the rites of passage, the mysteries of life and death and the eternal Flame of Love which is our Spiritual Essence. Wisdom Keeper is the Clan Mother for the Moon in Aquarius. She is the guardian of the Earth Records, the Stone People and the Planetary Memory. She is the keeper of honouring the truth and sacred points of view. She also reminds us to be thankful for our friendships and at the same time to honour ourselves. For more about these Clan Mothers stories read the 13 Original Clan Mothers or/and Earth Medicine, both by Jamie Sams.
This Full Moon activates the Tarot Constellation of Strength; the principle of Courage and Self Esteem. The theme for the Sun in Leo is courage of your convictions and acknowledging the strength within. It is also about being in your Compassionate Heart. The Moon in Aquarius reminds us to find the courage to be ourselves and acknowledge our connection to Source, however we define that to be. It is also asking us to be anchored in our Soul Essence Self as we walk our Spiritual Destiny Path and share our gifts of healing with those we love and the world.
The 5th Ray of Concrete Knowledge and Healing guides us at this Full Moon. It is the Ray of the Healer. The Archangels we can call on are Raphael, The Shinning one Who Heals and Mary, who is the embodiment of Divine Nurturing Love. Together they will help you heal and release what no longer serves you. The Sun in Leo is the 1st Ray of Divine Will and Power. The Archangels working with us are Michael, spiritual destiny guide, and Faith, trust and belief in self. This Full Moon is about connecting to Source, both your Inner Spiritual Essence and Creator and Great Mystery. Then you will have the support you need to continue to walk your Spiritual Destiny Path and shine your light into the darkness.
Just a last note. The Super Moon is when Luna is closer to Earth than usual. This is her closest approach in 2014 (although the Full Moon of Sept 08 is also a Super Moon just not quite as close). This Full Moon of Friendship is asking us all to thank and bless the friends in our lives who are also there with love and support.
