Where does 25 degrees Aquarius fall in your chart? That is the area of life that is being recharged by the full Moon this month.
Technically this is not an eclipse, so it will not generate the intensity that eclipses usually do.
A famous saying associated with Aquarians is that they march to the beat of their own drum. Meaning that they ofter create their own path in life rather than follow the ‘beaten path’.
So here’s to our path and composing our own beat that somehow synchronises with others around. Full Aquarian Moon Blessings to all!
