It is early harvest time and in the past certain cultures would have made corn dollies or woven wreathes aswell as making freshly baked bread to celebrate and feel gratitude.
As our days begin to shorten the desire to make your own harvest may be there. Foraging is great way to stay connected with your natural environment. More coming on this soon.
Over the next 6 weeks a Mars influence is going to be clearly evident. It will go retrograde on September 9th until Nov 13th. This will be a time for everyone to be more introspective and think of how best to act on things that concern us. It will be a chance to see more clearly our individual unconscious motivations - what makes us act without thinking. Be sure to keep an eye out for Mars in the night sky - it will be closest to Earth on 6th October.
But for now we have the water bearer, Aquarius Full Moon bringing in lots of energy for change. This sign is associated with the ankles, calves, shins, and circulatory system. It's element is air and so it's important to keep doing activities to ground you at this time, yoga, time in nature, walking through local woods, meditation, baking etc.
Aquarius likes having fun with friends, helping others, fighting for causes and intelligent stimulation.
Each Full moon is a chance to have a part of ourselves illuminated - a chance to see what we can learn about ourselves on a deeper level- what is becoming clearer ?
Although the emphasis of Aquarius is on community, it also highlights the individual self. Aquarius energy does not like being restricted, let down, being alone, dull or boring situations and people who disagree with them.
This would be a good time to book a pamper, get that much needed hair cut if you can find a free appointment :)
Express your thoughts in personal writing - helping to keep our heart and ming connected.
If you feel energetic and passionate about giving your time to help others - look for a worthy cause where you can make a difference.
As each of us relearns how to go with the flow it's important that we are not put off walking our own path by others.
Reach out to friends - notice how good it feels to open up the communication channels and reconnect. Never underestimate the power of hearing a friends voice - much better than a text or email.
If like many your employment has recently ended or is looking precarious now is the right time to be sending out your CV or researching new careers. Get clear on how you want to spend your time, when we're clear the right opportunity will present itself in time.
Aquarius energy is visionary - it likes progression and there's certainly lots of that happening right now. Keep thinking positive and hold true to the world we are part of - the greater community than your local neighbourhood - the like minded people who also believe in justice and equality for all.
The Aquarius Full Moon will highlight peace, justice, hope and freedom.
Be ready for the unexpected - embrace the changes which are upon us - new ways better for everyone are coming to the surface.
As we are restricted on who we can see and where we can go right now, taking the best possible care of our self will help everyone. Being at one with ourselves is vital at this time and helps everything and everyone around us. Be gentle and caring to you.

Am I spending too much time on technology ?
Am I listening to my inner voice ?
What makes me different ?

Why Pink? I think the world needs a big dose of the pink soft rose quartz unconditional love right now, less anger and more love. Everything would be much better if we softened and acted from a calmer place.
