The Moon will be full in Aquarius on the 18th August 2016. For magical purposes this is a good time to perform magical work for the following themes :-
- Experimenting and reform,
- Freedom and independence,
- Breaking away from challenging habits making way for progress.
This is a good time for healing rituals, especially for ailments that involve ankles and calves since these are areas associated with Aquarius and its planetary ruler Uranus.
Although not born on a full Moon, Gerald Gardner (the subject of Chapter Seven in my forthcoming book ‘Compass of The Stars’) was born when the Moon was in Aquarius. This placement reveals that he was hugely individual and unique, valued freedom and was unpredictable and innovative.
This side of his nature can be seen in his becoming a pioneer of the tradition of Gardnerian Wicca; he was eccentric, inventive and progressive. He also had many acquaintances, contacts and friends since these areas associate not just with his Moon sign Aquarius but also his Sun sign Gemini which is second to none at networking!
As Aquarius and Uranus are associated with electricity, computers and technology it is likely that had Gardner been born in a later age, he would have embraced the digital age where he could network and make contact through email, forums and websites. He would have loved the internet.
Enjoy the energies of the full moon and all the rewards it can bring!
