Full Moon: 21 Libra 33

cypFM11april17

Libra is the life sector wherein we most comfortably relate on an intellectual level. It’s those situations that bring a natural pause for reflection on the actions and reactions of others, whoever they may be to us, and the effects of our own. Libra is how we strategize for justice and equality. We present our case, whether to our BFF or a high court judge. Here we use language and gesture to convey intent and draw satisfaction. The archetype ruler of Libra is Venus and to catch her drift for us personally in the here and now, we need to check what she is up to.

At this full moon, it would be very true to say that Venus is between a rock and a hard place. Relationally, we may feel we are role playing more towards one end of the spectrum or the other in our daily interactions, i.e. the Martyr or the Overcomer. Obviously, there is all the difference between these two…and it’s notable that we can be either one of these with different Others all in the same day.

However, it would also be very true to say that Venus is most potent at this moment in time and so whatever agenda or point you are projecting is sure to draw great interest. (There will, however, be no commitment made that you should count on until after the 15th; Full moons are for getting the full picture, not necessarily signing on any dotted line. That being said, any project or mission you have been continuously working/re-working on since late January should yield clear results – including contractual obligations. Memory prompters can be found here.)

Mars in Taurus sextiles Venus at this full moon and that adds solid, hard-working, persistent and fixed efforts to the agenda of the Martyr or the Overcomer. Make sure you have double-checked your position on matters because whatever you decide to do, you’ll be entrenched.

A new client said that life feels like death by a thousand paper cuts lately and that sounds about right to me. In other words, we aren’t in mortal danger but there is a jostling, a hurry-up-already vibe in the air: we’ve got this list of things to do and every time we turn around, somebody or something is slowing us down – and it stings! These are the times we are living in. You have only to look at events on the world stage. Fortunately, our own little hiccups, messes and/or crises will require far fewer diplomatic summits.

At this full moon, it is highly likely that you can find respite and harmony with that small group of Others you would define as family, with those who appreciate All of who you are. Spend some time in an atmosphere that feels secure and safe to you. Just walk right in and tell them how much you appreciate the Space they provide for you. If you can, host a Space for others. They may need it more than you know.

Full Moon: 22 Cancer 27′

cancerfullmoon12012017

 

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were rules for living as simple as the rules for driving. I am thinking of the 4-way stop. Should two cars meet at the same time, the rule is that the driver to the right has the right-of-way. Should four cars meet at once, then somebody eventually takes the lead and the scene clears in an orderly fashion. This full moon energy, however, might feel a little more like ‘playing chicken’ at that intersection but we can avoid collision – or at least high speed collision – if we consciously decide to survey the elemental terrain beyond the hype that the first month of a new year can bring.

Breaking it Down

A ‘grand square configuration’ is made up of two oppositions. It may be tricky to pick it all apart now, but it is. Bear with me on this somewhat wobbly analogy…

Lets say these drivers have been aware of one another and their pending meet-up, even if only in some abstract sort of way. There’s unavoidable magnetism, welcome or not.

So, one of these two sets of drivers at the 4-way has been been heading towards this junction for some weeks now and in car 1, we have your ego and how freely it can move and stretch in relation to car 2: all the other people and institutions/groups you interact with, from the obligatory to the recreational.

Car 1 has that really cool flip switch that turns on the rocket fuel and we all (should) know by now how hard it is to think (or drive well, for that matter) when the g-forces have your head pinned to the neck support in a frightful glory. It is extremely important for us to know just how powerful our car really is: this is a year where you will have to find times and places to let it rip. Note that the pros go out to a desolate strip and put themselves through time trials and/or stunt work in prep for the real thing. Find your comparable outlet.

Car 2 is full of …well, its big and full! Think: a packed double decker. Not necessarily everyone/every theme that got on the bus in 2016 will still be a riding by end of 2017. At this moment in Time, you are called to allow your instincts to be tempered and channeled by your highest beliefs. As the abstract morphs into a clear target: If it hurt none, do. And keep this in mind: these 2 cars (which i think by now, we have determined are a fabulous set of your kind of wheels and a double decker bus) are scheduled to repeat this confrontation over the coming months. This is a primary axis of action for 2017.

The second set of cars (Mac trucks, more likely) are coming to the 4-way from very specific points; they are, or are an important part of, your ongoing Emotional Security/Practical Real-world Security axis and right now, the polarity of this spectrum hits you from within and without – and this is upsetting to both the Capricorn and the Cancer archetypes.

These two generally work very well together; they’ve been meeting up continuously since ancient times and know well the wisdom of compromise or, at least, truce. You, too, must find a way to cradle the child whilst plowing the field. Or to continue with our wobbly analogy, light staccato horn blows, flashing hazard lights and an endearing grin (as you swerve and dodge best you can around and through that 1st set of cars) directed straight through your windshield to that other Mac truck driver. Priorities are exactly that. Some thing or some relationship reaches a culmination point and both Lights will make clear your options for a continued secure course.

So…its a packed 4-way intersection and yet its component parts are not of the same frequency or duration. If you are feeling bombarded or overwhelmed, breaking it down can be so helpful. What is meaningful sound and what is static? What is clearly intrinsic to you and what is passing through?

Pre-Launch Jitters

I wrote the following post a couple of days ago, but its all still quite pertinent. So, I am posting it anyway – updated. (yes, it’s been jittery around here!)

Today Friday the 7th, the Sun squared Pluto. For me, this time around conjures up images of what happens on the tarmac and in the command center during the last few days before a rocket launch. Check this. Check that. All systems blinking on and off. Check it all again. Teams bustling in and out of vehicles, lugging hoses and hovering over valves and gauges, zooming here and there…Some people just standing around with their hands on their hips…The pressure is on, the clock is ticking…

Capricorn, a generally somber, industrious and status-oriented energy has Pluto at center stage, at the apex of both the climbing sea-goat and the Reaper’s agenda. Pluto’s energy appears stationary but it’s drilled down long ago and tapped into a multitude of underground streams. It looks like nothing is moving and yet Pluto has been continually feeding on a slow, rich stream of nutrients in the bowels of Capricorn earth. Pluto transforms this into fuel and the crew is filling the tanks.

Marching on its way into alignment with Pluto is Mars, trying not to appear more psyched than convention will permit (this can be difficult!). We can think of this as our personal energy being drawn relentlessly towards the Work that must get done. This work of keeping the drills in good order, of attempting to rationalise those emotional feeds into data for strategy, to maintain (that’ll have to do for most of us in these times) our rung on the wobbly ladder of life. At what point are you in the Great Transformation of your Capricorn career?

Feeling a bit icky but committed is Venus in Scorpio as she eyes Mars approaching a sextile. After all, sewer systems and shady relationships are fair game as the Sun and Jupiter light up The Scales of Justice, Equality, and Righteousness – and soon inform megaphone announcements and revelations. Have you lived a traditionally acceptable life? Do you have some explaining to do or are you up on your soap box? He or she who digs deepest wins. And that starts with the Self.

You can find the discipline to learn or engage with something new and perhaps intimidating and discover you can do it, easypeasy. Confidence will soar if you give it even half a chance.Capricorns and those with strong Saturn can work wondrous feats. Those of us who grasp that this energy is there to be used in this life sector will, too. As an added bonus, you become even more attractive..!

Also sailing through Capricorn territory is the Moon. The emotional channel of the moon here is driven, blinkered and linked to experiential triggers that warn against recklessness and risk: Gotta stay safe. There is a sense of needing to cling to the devil you know. Is your focus forward or rear view?

As the moon squares Uranus in Aries, you may find yourself in a tug of war between keeping the status quo peace and striking out on your own. Best case scenarios include finding truly clever ways to impress and win over the powers that be; you discover a way to make real that which you want. Otherwise, burn up frustrated energy in whatever (ideally, physical) mode you like best.

If you are feeling small in the great big cog, wait another day and you’ll find your attitude (certainly, your attention) has shifted all by itself.

 

If you could just be a bit more polite, less aggressive; if you could just make up your mind already; if you could just empathise more; if you could just face reality more; you’re such a control freak; you need to grow a spine. Screw you.

This is the reality; deal with it.

Yea, ok, but what, actually, is the reality? Which ‘thing’ should I really invest my time in? Not all nutrient-dense streams are the same, you know. My kool-aid may not be your flavor. This playing field feels riddled with risk.

 

A lot of the people I know are currently bogged down in what feels like ‘bureaucratic sludge’, the weight of The System; a lot of us are fired up on the inside but physically lethargic or unable to find the ‘starting point’ to real-world production. The effects of life over the past few weeks has caused an undertow of sorts for people with pingey cardinal points and those that have to live with them. But this will lift or shift, soon. In the meantime, I see it as a kind two-fold blessing: we are going to need our strength for something progressively important and we get to avoid spewing stuff we later regret.

Over the next week, we have a steadily, exponentially increasing stream of shazam! on tap so, look out, world – and look out, Self!

Pay attention to your physical being and respect it’s limitations to the greatest degree your obligations will allow.

Pay attention to moments that show you how your ideas, abilities and skills will have to morph a bit or where it’s time to stand your ground about what you are worth because of those skills. You will just know.

Pay attention to where and how your relationships grow and shift. Who has your back or the time to listen? Who should you be listening to even if you don’t like what they are saying? Who has earned your patience and/or the right to your attention? You will just know.

For those who don’t like what they see and hear, know that you are not alone. But you are not off the hook! We can use this energy, still, in our own best interests. We can work at the practice of accepting the reality of the moment. We can free up fear-based planning by focusing on the facts presented without reacting to the whingey voice in our head.

We can tell ourselves right now: I am just going to be open to whatever happens. Reality today is not guaranteed to be reality tomorrow – and this is just as logical to see as a positive truth as a negative one.  I am going to do my best work where I am expected to do it. I will watch out for too much pride on my part and not enough respect on the other’s part. I will continually grade my actions by my code of ethics/belief system…

This way leads straight to the shazam! stream. Think: rocket fuel    🙂

Be well and be kind,
