This Aquarius Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse, the second of three Eclipses occurring this season (the first was a Cancer Solar Eclipse on July 12 while the third will be a Leo Solar Eclipse on August 11). Each month’s Full Moon may bring a sense of illumination, yet when this lunation is also a Lunar Eclipse, as it is today, this awareness—and what inspired it and manifests from it—may seem more heightened and elevated.Read More
