August 7th, 11:10 AM Lunar Eclipse
The Sun is Opposite the Moon
Full moons are always in opposition to the Sun. This creates a feeling of tension between where you want to shine and how your feelings are flowing on a sensory level about the Sun’s directive. The two forces seem like they are working against each other, yet they are on the same team displaying different techniques to obtain the same mission. The Aquarian/Leo polarity creates tension between the quest for group interaction and the recognition of self.
The Egyptian Goddess Maat ushers in a time of discovery about who you are at the core, as your most balanced and beneficent self, and about the work you came here to do in this lifetime. According to the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Maat is the goddess you visit upon your death. She places her single ostrich feather on the scale to be weighed against your heart. If you have lived a virtuous life, and reached your highest potential as a kind and decent human being, your heart will be as light as Maat’s feather, and you would cross over. If not, you will be devoured by the Goddess Ammit and would be reborn into duality for another lifetime.
Let this moon show you your potential and re-orient yourself to you life’s highest work and purpose. The Egyptian word for heart was “ib.” Ask yourself, who will “I be” in this lifetime?
