August 20th arrives with a Full Moon in Aquarius. Ruled by the planet Uranus, individually and globally we’re being pushed to embrace innovation, individuation and collaboration…a mouthful. This said, illuminating this Aquarian moon is the Sun in heart-centered Leo, reminding us that we must not forget to be true to our Soul’s intent for us to evolve as spirit in body.
As I’ve discussed in previous posts, the science of Evolutionary Astrology is about transformation. In the evolutionary analysis of the birth chart, we’re presented with a powerful tool that metaphorically offers a map and compass which reveals our Soul’s unique agenda and pathway for this lifetime. In addition, this process presents us with the opportunity to confront psychological karmic energy from a distant past that haunts us at an unconscious level; in essence this elusive energy holds us back. Certainly the prospect of stepping up to this challenge is a daunting one that requires courage and faith to leap into the unknown in order to ‘break the ties that bind.‘
Once we become aware of what we need to leave behind and in what ways we need to move forward on this journey of self-discovery, we can call upon several of Dr. Bach’s powerful flower remedies for support. His remedy Walnut immediately comes to mind, for Walnut expressly helps us to cut binding ties and at the same time ‘stay the course’ toward our ‘next right step.’
Additionally, there’s another remedy for this situation in Dr. Bach’s famous ’38’—Honeysuckle. The dynamics of Honeysuckle specifically relate to those emotional states of mind wherein the individual cannot let go of the past. Often this memory state manifests as unrealistic longings to return to a nebulous history that’s wrapped up in fantasy or it can be recall within the present lifetime that nevertheless, is also conjured up in fantasy. Such desires can be attached to grief and loss or simply a wanting to escape. In either state of emotional psychology, it’s the avoidance of the present which prevents movement into the future.
So, as we enter the energy of the forthcoming Aquarian Full Moon, we have tools to help us move forward on our journey of growth…an analysis of our astrological birth chart through the evolutionary lens, Dr. Bach’s Honeysuckle, or both!
