Title: Aquarius Full Moon

Aquarius Full Moon
Why are we here?
The time of the full moon is a time of
We celebrate the energy of the SUN.
The reason is that when the Moon is full it is
the furthest from the Sun, thus the Suns energy
is the strongest.
Thus we celebrate the energy of the Sun through
meditation and reflection.
All is Energy!
For those of you who are not familiar with
esoteric philosophy or do not know it well I
will remind you that all is energy. Thus you
should simply relax and try to feel the energy
rather then concern yourself with understanding
During the lecture you can ask questions or make
comments. After the meditation you may also ask

The Sign of Aquarius
Which sign is the Sun in?
  • The Sun is in Aquarius.

And which sign is the Moon in?
The Moon is in Leo.
Why should you learn about Aquarius if you are
not one?
You may have another planet - or the Moon in
Even if you do not the Aquarius energy will still
affect you - and, perhaps, as importantly those
around you.
If you are a Aquarius you may not display all of
the characteristics of Aquarius as you have other
planets and energies which also affect you.
Why else?
Presently Neptune is in Aquarius, having moved in
on January 28, 1998. The last period of Neptune
in Aquarius was 1834-1848so its actually
unlikely you have Neptune in Aquarius.
Can anyone remember what was happening in Europe
during this period?
This period witnessed the rise of Romanticism, a
reaction against the conventions and restraints
of classicism. It was the dominant note in the
artistic and intellectual life of Europe.
Aquarius promotes the concept of society in
general, but with Neptunes influence, this
concept was dissolved and completely reversed as
Romanticism emphasized the glorification of the
individual against society as a whole.
Yes, its Aquarius.
And does anyone know the Ascendant of President
What mode is Aquarius associated with?
stability or firm and dependable
What do we know about the Fixed mode?
fixed signs are concerned with maintaining
something, changing things so they are the same
as before
Aquarius wants to keep their beliefs, etc
concerning humanity fixed.
What element is Aquarius associated with?
What do we know about Air?
language, logic, communication and transport
Thought, ideas and intellect
logic links ideas, language links words,
transport links places, and words link to
In order to link ideas together, we need to use
abstraction or generalization to some degree. So
like fire, air can be abstract, although because
it is closer to the earth, it is less "up in the
sky" than fire (although it is "up in the air",
and abstract sometimes) Although air is
everywhere, it remains air, although it does
unite with objects and things in the world, but
not as fast as fire. So the archetypal air can be
objective and a bit impersonal. It is social
because it is everywhere, but the associations
are not as deep as those of water, or as lasting
as those of earth.
Air people are concerned with
thought, ideas and intellect.
They are detached and objective. They can be
versatile and agile in communications. But they
might not accomplish their promises or goals
unless they are grounded in earth.  They are the
theory people in the theory versus practice
debate. Nonetheless, while the air people are
less practical than those of the earth, they are
more practical and objective than the other two
signs. They can become dreamers, thinking and
planning, but not applying. Air people are
reflective and think things through logically
before they implement their ideas. They can be
procrastinators, but they rarely make mistakes
through lack of thought. They tend not to be
emotional, but they are fair minded and consider
others viewpoints. They are group rather than
person oriented. They love humanity, but are not
that close to individuals. They have varied
interests and could become perpetual students.
So what happens when we put the mode of fixed
together with the element of air?
What do we know about Aquarius?
  • Aquarius is the 11th sign of the zodiac.
  • As the eleventh sign of the zodiac, Aquarius
    represents the eleventh stage in the evolution of
    man and his place in the universe.
  • In Aquarius, the individuality of man so
    carefully nurtured in Leo, now becomes part of
    the greater spectrum of society as a whole.

What else about Aquarius?
  • Aquarians are stubborn and resist changing their
    opinions or accepting new ideas that they do not
    like or with which they do not agree. Big changes
    in life are accepted as a challenge, but small
    changes that throw off their plans are not
    tolerated very well. The astrological symbol for
    Aquarius is the figure of a man pouring water.
    The water is seen as mankinds collective
    consciousness. It depicts Aquarians as
    disseminators of the spirit of humanity. Many
    Aquarians, in tune with their celestial heritage,
    are idealists who champion the highest principles
    to which humanity can aspire. However they are
    also extremely independent thinkers. When
    confronted with authoritarian demands or dogmatic
    principles to which they do not subscribe, they
    rebel. They may hesitate to take the initiative
    at times, but once they decide a situation or
    idea is worthwhile, they become involved and
    aggressive in pushing it forward. They dont mind
    being asked to do something but they resent being
    told to do it. Those who want to gain their favor
    will help share the work load without being asked.

Aquarians react
  • to everything they experience in life with an
    intellectual orientation. Before they take
    physical action, before they assess the practical
    worth of something, and before they sort out
    their true emotions, they try to visualize it
    objectively as a kind of mental exercise. In
    relationships, their intellectual approach makes
    them appear interested but not particularly
    passionate or possessive. It does not necessarily
    mean they really lack passion. When they do focus
    their feelings, their passion can be as intense
    as it is inspirational.

Aquarius Astrological Symbol
  • The symbol for Aquarius is the Water Bearer,
    symbolically and eternally giving life and
    spiritual food to the world. The water from the
    vessel washes away the past, leaving room for a
    fresh, new start. The sign of Aquarius is
    forward-looking and growth-oriented. Concerned
    with equality and individual freedom, Aquarius
    seeks to dispense its knowledge, and its vision
    of equality and individuality, to all.

Aquarius Constellation

Aquarius Astrological Glyph
  • The glyph for Aquarius depicts the water from the
    water bearers vessel, as a symbol of open-ended
    spiritual energy. Two wavy lines - waves, of
    water, or the vibrationary waves of electricity
    parallel lines of force.

The Aquarius Myth
This myth contains many themes which are
profoundly important to the deepest meaning of
  • The noble impulse
  • His payment
  • To Aquarius, knowledge is always superior to
    blind faith. Aquarius has no room for
    superstitious devotion and he also has no
    patience for unexplained authority. To him, all
    individuals at the end should be their own
    ultimate judges. And he will, if necessary, defy
    the gods to obtain their secrets. 

A second myth
Pandora, who opens the forbidden box and releases
the entire array of human ills and sufferings,
along with Hope.
  • Pandora

with Aquarius there is always hope, for he has
a deep and ingrained faith in human potential and
human nature.
Well now mention some of the challenges of
Aquarius. Remember though we are talking about
the energy of Aquarius and there are many types
of energy.

The Exoteric Ruler is Saturn with Uranus as
Both will provide the know how to bring an
abstract vision into reality.
Uranus gives innate spontaneous activity and this
produces evolutionary developmentboth natural
and spiritual. It is the urge to better
Saturn is the planet which conditions primarily
the point in evolution where choice definitely
becomes possible, where rejection of opportunity
or its acceptance can consciously be undertaken,
and the shouldering of personal responsibility
becomes a recognized fact in a planned and
ordered life.
Uranus as sub-ruler
The need of the personality for freedom without
responsibility has to be refused rejected,
ones goal is freedom with responsibility.
It is this planet which symbolizes the strong
drive in Aquarius to find freedom, to pierce the
veil of the mysteries, to shatter hidebound
We have to bypass old thinking, to step out of
mass thinking.
The Esoteric Ruler is Jupiter
Jupiters primary purpose is one of fusion.
Jupiter works to create the ultimate synthesis in
order to exteriorize universal harmony and
Aquarius - Ray 5
To serve humanity is to love humanity, to be part
of society, whether it is political, religious or
the cultural sphere or field.
  • Aquarius transmits ray 5, which stimulate science
    both exoterically and esoterically. Ray 5 will
    also develop the ability to understand the
    esoteric, the spiritual in this age.

Aquarius is a symbol of world service, world
service is a word for service for humanity the
goal for spiritual beings, to carry the water of
life to humanity.
The Labours of Hercules
The Labour in Aquarius
  • In Aquarius the task it is a dreadfully
    unpleasant one! Hercules is asked to clean out
    the stables of King Augeasstables filled with
    the horrid stench of cattle dung accumulated
    over a great many years. The unsanitary
    conditions are making the people of the kingdom

The Labour in Aquarius
  • The King cannot believe that Hercules is offering
    to do this work without reward and thinks it is a
    plot to take his throne but Hercules is
    motivated by selfless service. For this is what
    we learn in the sign of Aquarius, how to truly
    serve. The gift of Aquarius is the discovery that
    true service is the spontaneous outflow of the
    loving heart.

Hercules completes his task
  • Hercules thinks long and hard about how to
    perform this feat

Hercules completes his task
  • before coming to a rather innovative solution
    He sees that there are two rivers running nearby,
    so he breaks a hole through one of the walls of
    the stables and diverts both rivers through it.
    The water cleans everything out. This symbolises
    the cleansing of the lower animal nature, the
    physical and emotional bodies. The two rivers
    indicate the right direction of the dual forces
    of Life and Love.

Confluence of rivers
  • One of the most significant things about the
    chart of this full Moon (which well see in a few
    minutes) is the close proximity of the Sun and
    Neptune. Neptune is the God of the Waters, and
    Aquarius is the sign of the water-bearer! So it
    seems that the confluence of the rivers is well
    set up. Neptune opposite the Moon symbolises the
    cleansing and purification of the physical and
    emotional bodies.

Cleaning of Stables
  • The cleaning of the stables. Interestingly it was
    in a stable that the Christ child was born and
    Neptune (the ruler of Pisces) is known as the
    Christ, the Saviour of the Piscean Age. Neptune
    opposite the Moon is the Love of the Christ
    pouring into the material world. However we are
    on the cusp of the new Age of Aquarius, and at
    this time Neptune is in Aquarius, so it would
    benefit us to update our archetype of the world

Spiritual Adulthood
  • In our spiritual adulthood are we still looking
    around for someone to save us? Or can we
    recognise our brotherhood with all humanity and
    learn to serve each other? We must beware too
    that all too often our concept of ourselves as a
    server of others degenerates into a kind of
    martyrdom. Have you ever (metaphorically) cleaned
    the stables for nothing just so that you can
    feel appropriately unappreciated??

We can view this as the energy of air - language,
logic, communication and transport - (Aquarius)
on the level of the personality and fire - high
spirits, enthusiasm, and direct honesty and
openness - (Leo) on the level of the emotions

which are associated with stability and

Saturn square Pluto is a generational aspect that
implies anger in a society that believes it was
deceived by those in power. Getting back to
basics seems an overriding concern, but the
intensity is sometimes so great as to get rid of
the baby with the bath water. Many individuals
born in this generation are not willing to give
their respect or cooperation to others unless
they feel it has been earned.

Sun opposite Mars indicates that whether by
choice or circumstance these individuals always
seem to be on the edge of direct confrontations.
As a rule they will not pass up a challenge,
especially physical ones, finding it necessary to
prove themselves at every turn. Though they may
possess spirit and courage, they can also be
resentful of confinement and restrictions, making
it hard for them to accept even the mildest form
of authority.
Moon conjunct Mars indicates those given to
quick, impulsive actions. There is not apt to be
much subtly of expression in their emotional
needs. Lack of hesitancy usually leaves them no
time to consider the possibility of encountering
rejection or hostility in the reaction of others.
Jealousy, impatience, and irritability are
quickly induced and can as quickly disappear as
they move on to other things.

Jupiter sextile Pluto implies a generation of
individuals who are given the motivation and
opportunities to put scientific theory into
practice. Their approach to societal structures
may be more organized, detailed, and
number-oriented than humanitarian in character.
In the society under the influence of this
generation population control for example, may be
a more important issue than discovering how to
reduce the number of birth defects.
Why are we here tonight?
The time of the full moon there is a direct
alignment between the energy of the sign the sun
is in and the affairs of the sign the moon is in.
Sun Aquarius sense of universality
Moon Leo expands selfhood into grouphood
In our meditation this evening, let us visualize
a common goal for humanity. Groups of men and
women of goodwill bonding together to support
right-human values. Let us use our magical powers
of manifestation, and see this happen. Leaders
and ordinary people alike, afire with goodwill
and humanitarian vision, acting in concert for
the good of mankind as a whole.
Seed Thought for Aquarius
  • Water of life I am, poured forth for thirsty men.
