Prelude to the Full Moon in Libra

cyprus transits280318

Over the last 48 hours, the baseline buzz of Uranus, sometimes described as Agitation or Panic, has grown to a irksome pitch for those seeking validation/acceptance of their personal agenda. Many are beyond boredom and frustration with slo-mo pointless drama, with the plight of being square in a hive of rounded Others, with the inane workings of The System, a.k.a. the Established Powers that Be.
Venus in Aries can almost see and smell her beloved green pastures in Taurus but the route before her – squarely behind and within ‘enemy lines’ – demands that she first performs a bit of guerilla warfare. If you’ve been getting System messaging louder and clear that your current style or mode of relating/deal making has lost its charm, then this lead-up post for the full moon in Libra is for you. No harm, no foul (yet), just No Go from here on.

Augmented Intelligence
In other words, if you really want to win you’ve got to get some emotional distance on the matter and that’s not easy – but it is possible. You’ve got to return to your proverbial center and expect to magnetise a brilliant result. Enter Uranus in modified regalia as cool, detached Genius Download in long-term, progressive service to Self. This may come from you/ ‘your side’ or from the System wherein you may least expect it.

(For me, the solution’s first step came from recognising a particular characteristic inherent in an archaic opposing system was a big weakness…nanoseconds later, I was grasping that I could capitalise on it. Once I saw this chink in the armor, my plan simply became obvious and even exhilarating to me…ha! I must still walk through a trying experience with a fickle Goliath but now I am channeling the tools available. I’m up for this. Agitation immediately drops to minimal/nil. Whew! )

Weather-Proof
You should always expect your astrologer to provide at least two supporting phenomena for their storyline recommendation.
1. Mars rules the space that Venus now travels through and is wholly under the authority of Saturn, the disciplinarian and the king of emotional containment.
2. Jupiter in Scorpio is novile the full moon and sextile Pluto. In English, this means: expect your genius solution to be found in going deeper in analysis of your particular validation struggle. Really examine the strings and pulleys between you and your in-law/contractor/employer/social network/parent/child/ health care provider. Let Pluto work FOR you; amp up your X-ray vision and drop your preconceived notions.

Cancerian Concerns
The upcoming full moon in Libra at 10’44 creates the shape of a cross ( ‘+’) in the astrology wheel. The sun occupies 10’44 of Aries, Saturn and Mars occupy 8’ of Capricorn, the moon is shining in Libra and this leaves the outlet for energy surplus/overload directly into 5’to 15’ of Cancer. This means that our response/s to Life’s revelations and completions occurring around March 31st will most likely have some Cancerian element to them.
You might decide to turn off your phone and maintain sofa status or take a long bath and go to bed. You might decide to visit family or a close long-time friend for a hearty meal – or cook for them. That’s fine as long as you don’t find yourself still sipping and nibbling into the wee hours. That’s fine as long as you don’t think you can come for comfort, but then a couple hours later start criticizing some pet ‘fault’ you see in them. That’s fine as long as you don’t seek to manipulate them into giving you further assistance.

Cancer can receive and handle your stress – gladly! – but you can be sure that beneath appearances, it’s not effortless. Respect that in yourself as caretaker and in those who nurture you. Remember that the people and places that represent sanctuary for you deserve your finest possible companionship and maintenance. After all, when the dust settles…who and what else matters?

Full Moon: 11 Gemini 40

The Twins Within
The atmosphere this full moon time will affect individuals along two fuzzy frequencies. Were you born in the morning or the evening? Do you have more earth or water in your personality? I ask because factors like these will determine how you feel and experience this super moon.

The ruler of the moon is Mercury, in stilled mode to retrograde on the stressed degree of 29 Sagittarius – and caught fast in Saturn’s gravitational chains: not so good for earth signatures. But here, in Sag, it can also take a lot to get a body down. Venus, too, is in the house, magnetizing the pleasures of the season’s festivities.

For all of us, the Lights and the Sea God form an exact t-square in the heavens that will dump the energies converging into Virgo, the sector of practical service and mind/body/spirit health. Its a bit of a funny mix…we want to mix and mingle and take a break from the mundane but do we have the means and stamina to cover all the bases? We might stare at our to-do lists and then find our mind has wandered into a reverie of movie clips and voice overs that tug powerfully on our heart strings. Those who feel compelled to serve may end up feeling fretful on the inside, lethargic on the outside and delighted with any social interruption. Those that have more fire and water elements in their nature will mostly likely be at the holiday parties, feeling that this hard patch will also pass. It’s not effortless, mind you; they are willing themselves to flow.

This full moon in Gemini indicates that you can decide to enjoy yourself even if the wolves are howling along your proverbial ridge line. We’re breathing in a strange and surreal atmosphere but looking around, our immediate world is still about the same. Mundane issues may be sputtering but we’re on the case. We can acknowledge that we are mortal – and that twin feature is universal. Downtime is essential to mind/body/spirit health and good decision making. My advice: give a nod to the boundaries and then try to play a little within whatever playground you’ve got. Flow, fellow heroes, flow.

New Moon: 6 Taurus 27

 

cypNM 26april17

 

Rest and Abide

 

Generally speaking, there is a beautiful simplicity to a new moon in Taurus. It’s a call to steer the body into a comfortable position and rest it long enough for the mind to find its matching harmonious frequency: Here there is no clutter, only blissful sufficiency.

 

Since the new moon in Aries 28 days ago, we’ve been called to stake our claim and take on the proverbial plough harness. We should feel tired and we should heed that feeling. Yet, there’s another reason to pause. Just as we must fit our catnaps or zone out times around the demands of life, we will need contemplative time to consider how our grand plan has had to shapeshift for the hard earth of reality. This just can’t be rushed; the mind’s strategic survival structures need time to get the message that it’s really alright to chill out. And then, whilst snoozing or strolling or staring out the window, a ‘fix’ or a peaceful acceptance can come.

 

And so, generally speaking and regardless of any and all matter hitting the fan, the Universe invites you to rest and abide as much as possible. Continue to pace yourself, too, watching that Mars in Gemini doesn’t scatter your energies all over the place, but diversifies the ways in which you progress towards your target.

 

**********

 

Meanwhile, we’ve got a longer cycle coming into its 2nd of three passes: Mercury in conjunction with Uranus in Aries…

 

Time flies when you are swamped, right? Since the turning of the year, many of us have determined where our personal energy is best channeled and begun the necessary networking and bridge-work. We are on our way. We’ve been exposed to different points of view and consciously or not, refined our own perspective. Along the way, we may well have had breakthroughs or surpassed our expectations in a particular area of relating to other/s and, in doing so, were impressed with what ‘çame out’ of us. Yes! We navigated best we could between a rock and a hard place, came out on a new ledge…and watched ourselves transform that position using a combination of our own lessons learned (maintaining flexibility) and fixed gaze on our long term goal/s (holding consistent)…

 

And now, over the course of this week, another cycle is rising – A hardwired sequence of thoughts/behaviors/assumptions/prophecies will be forced to a sudden stop. Somehow, lightning strikes and there is suddenly ‘space’…a split second later, there sits a new thought and it blows our mind. Wow! It’s as if what we finally grasp as being True in one area of our life must also hold to be true in a general life-creed sense; like ripples of evolution in all dimensions.

 

Mercury plus Uranus in Aries = shocking, piercing, penetrating, of high art/craft, progressive, authentic, inspired by something greater than Self, life changing. So, sure, you could shout and scream, attack with a knife or enlist a posse to encircle and crush the enemy camp. Certainly, this isn’t gentle energy and you may well be on the receiving end from someone who probably desperately needs some time out. The bottom line is that this energy is on tap for ALL of us even as we must individually wield it. Let’s be Taurus about it: slow to anger, quick to see that this, too, shall pass. Let’s keep on doing our best to apply these symbolic descriptors towards peaceful co-thriving.

 

Wishing you a magical new moon,

On Cycles

 

Pluto stations retrograde on April 20th opening a tunnel into our approach to the natural cycle of endings and beginnings through September 29. This review may bring to our awareness where we may not be allowing the natural “death” of something to take its course by regenerating in a transformed state. Before change can happen, we need to let go of the old, the tired, the worn out, the dysfunctional. If we can keep everything moving through their natural cycles, we remain constantly refreshed. Pluto’s subtle alchemic process is a quiet, under the radar energetic force that works regardless of how conscious we are of it. The more aware we are, however, the greater traction we may experience in becoming at one with the magical rhythms of the cosmos.  – Gray Crawford (link)
