It’s All About Our Emotions this Full Moon!

The Lion’s Gate Portal which reached its peak on Monday 8 August remains open until the end of the week and facilitates the connection to our highest potential and the healing of deep emotions that will surface if you allow them to. So how should we go about facing our deep and perhaps traumatic emotions?


The coming of the Sturgeon Moon on Friday 12 August 2022 935am SGT can help. This Full Moon in Aquarius aids in the healing process through giving us the ability to distance ourselves from our emotions so that we can maintain objectivity and make better decisions about what changes to implement. Abraham Maslow, most famous for creating Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, once said,” Dispassionate objectivity is itself a passion for the real and for the truth.” The Aquarian energies allow us to both experience the emotion and maintain distance while keeping in mind our larger objectives, higher calling, and purest intentions. We find it easier to observe because the distance allows our emotions to be muted down to a point that is manageable without completely shutting them off. Through observation, we can then decide how we want to heal, what change we want to implement, and what help we should seek.


The Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius also signifies the beginning of the end of the summer months. So, we may feel more motivation and the impetus to move and take action. In Chinese metaphysics, it is the Earth Monkey month which has the strongest clash with the Water Tiger year’s energy, so expect a month of turbulence, disruption, and movement. All perfect to jolt those stuck in inertia into action.


For those of us who are on our spiritual journey of discovery, this is also a good time for integration and bonding with our community where we will derive strength and courage for positive change and deep emotional healing.

As usual, we at Ame de Lumiere are always here to help.

Sending one and all much love, healing, and blessings. Namaste.


With love, light & laughter,
