Actual Time of Celestial Event: Friday August 31st, 2012 @ 7:58 am MDT
Sun’s position: 14 degrees Leo (The Lion)
Moon’s position: 14 degrees Aquarius (The WaterHuman)
This Full Moon meets us with the very bright, very round, very shiny Full Moon ~ so bright it is featureless, just a white disk, like the sun. This is the Full Moon of Leo! A Big Sunflower, teeny and numerous yellow ‘flames’ peeking around its broad heart heavily laden with seeds, which swirl like the galaxy in expanding spiral patterns.
I am struck by the perfection of the seeds’ patterning ~ the grace and magic are palpable within these images. This is, as you may know, an expression of what mathematics calls the Fibonacci sequence and geometry, the Golden Mean. These are humanity’s naming of what is the beautiful and natural unfolding of all life. We can see it within every level of creation: spiral galaxies, the rings of Saturn, pine cones & sea shells, your very own ears and hands and living cells.
This orderly process of expansion / growth is featured within this moon cycle. It is not intellectual, though we can understand it with our thinking. It is not emotional, though we may feel deeply moved. It does not happen because we make it happen, though our participation is vital for bringing the wisdom seeds of our own sunflower hearts into the world now!
