Full Moon: 20 Scorpio 24

cypFM110517

Diagnosis

Life is busy busy busy now and this full moon in Scorpio will likely only hold our attention for a brief moment. Yet for those with natal placements in key sectors at these degree points, it will bring a cause for deep pause. An arrested and poignant moment arrives and we have to catch our breath… Shared Exchanges + Time = a Nutritional Evaluation. For some, the field will be left to rest for now and for others, this crop is history.

A full moon in Scorpio is symbolic of bringing interior parts out into the sunny open air and that’s because the hidden emotional workings in the psyche that gauge need-fulfillment require a thorough reckoning from time to time. Completely under the beams of a Taurus sun, green shoots reach for the sky and we can see just how nutrient dense the soil our crop has been growing in really IS.

Season and Episode

Using Astro 101, we know the archetypal rulers of the full moon are Pluto and Mars. Pluto can help us articulate the life season we are experiencing and Mars in Gemini describes the spectrum of ways we can personally co-create during this episode in the here and now.

As discussed here often, Pluto is grinding his way through Capricorn and you can use the tag cloud on the homepage for oodles of further reading. Keep in mind that this energy entity is also known as the divine octave to our mortal Mars.

Much more likely to be within our command to wield is Mars in his transit of Gemini. Here, our inner warrior must guard against depletion from a scattering of force and even a tendency to forget original intents and motivations. However, clearly some diversity is appropriate. Revisit your plan and expect to see how you can do more within the boundaries of the same theme. Nimble, yes! but do not rush. When making a choice, evaluate according to that which is most durable, best suited to the task at hand, of quality material. The new moon in two weeks’ time will be rooted in this same energy field (4’Gemini)…in times of brain-rest now, allow the mind soup to stir.

There is much to sort as we grieve or exalt in the closing of a door we once used and if you find yourself or someone near to you experiencing this, even as the rest of life keeps you bobbing along, start each day with a little whispered promise that you will invest in that which is worthy.

We have been watching from a distance as a grouse hen nested down just a few centemeters from a cliff edge at the top of the property. Her caring investment has yielded just 4 out of 10 potential little ones…she will not return. Yet in good time, she will seek a worthy partner and nest and invest again.

Solar Eclipse: 8 Pisces 11

cyp-nm-se-26feb17

 

 

Quotes and phrases from the last week*:

 

‘Don’t be afraid, be ready.’

 

‘The law is no substitute for morality.’ 

 

‘New burdens, new anxieties are presented to you as freedoms.’

 

‘Revolution without evolution’

 

‘Deconstruction with a blunt tool’

 

Now Picture this: Procreator Extraordinaire, sparking with electric frizz, somewhat frustrated and definitely weary… pausing for a moment with tender Solace…. resting in the mystic home of Boundless Grace….a magical glow begins radiating from within that marvelous mind-soup. This is true, bone-deep refreshment.

 

Now, if the archetypal Sun and Moon are unplugging from The Noise for a couple days and since they represent integral life forces within each of us, perhaps we should do the same. We can plug into this super charger and rest while the juices flow.

 

Then we might begin to sense that some themes are ending or no longer hold us as tightly; we are turning a corner and new vistas of experience are waiting for us on our way. It would be good to leave yourself some markers here to discover at a later date: a journal entry, a souvenir from your daily travels, a photo.  

 

And what these inklings could mean to you and for you doesn’t have to be anyone’s business but your own just now. There may simply not be words yet to convey it – even to Self. It’s form may dance like a bed sheet out drying on a breezy night, teasing the mind’s eye. That’s alright, too. It helps us keep up the practice of being flexible in response to reality  – and who wants to get into a theoretical debate about the validity of one’s magical glow?!

 

Actually, I suppose a kindred spirit would – a shared reverie – and the mutual support would be a boon. In fact, that shall be my super new moon solar eclipse wish for you: a kindred spirit for company. But you must still make at least one for yourself. If you would like some complimentary help ‘framing’ your wish, just ask. I am all for mutual support. 🙂

Anything said or done in a heartfelt way affects the world, contributes to its aliveness, stops it unravelling. This is how prayer and magic work. This is a form of cause and effect that is outside the scientific remit, but it is the most important form of all. Contributing to the world – saving the world, even, as if we could possibly know how – is not just a matter of direct action, though that has its place. It is also about inner work, of heartfelt intention, of prayer. And that connects us to the deeper soul of the world. It is that thing beyond us, that is vastly bigger than us, that makes the difference.

Lunar Eclipse: 22 Leo 28

Stars in Our Eyes
This month, the Play of Life (in which we are all starring in our hero’s journey) debuts its first installment in a series of scenes concerning the Leo/Aquarius axis. Leo symbolises our inner child at play, fixed attention and brow etched with concentration on that which brings us joy, fulfillment, healthy pride. And isn’t the beautiful nature of a child to instinctively – joyfully –  share, display, offer the fruits of that labor to all the world as he or she encounters it? The world is so big and unfamiliar but the lion-hearted are fearless, motivated by a purity of intent…why wouldn’t everyone else love this, too?
From now until summer’s end, we can be in various stages of rehearsal and performance, honing our craft to find that sweet spot wherein the work we invest with heart and soul and the wants and needs of the greatest potential audience can meet. The chemistry perfects. Now, with all these lessons in ‘flexibility mindset’ hopefully hardwired in, is the time to start having fun re-imagining what that might look like in this morphing era.
Now the Lights shine across that sea of peoples and upon our prop boxes and stage set. What character facet of identity should be cut? Who will be your cast mates? Should you be the director or, for now, be directed? Maybe you need an agent, new logo or signature piece.
Don’t squander this energy on fretting about what’s missing – and I really mean that. Of course, bits and bobs (and ok, a chunk or two) are missing, but you possess All the Imagination You Need to work with what you have and the innate, instinctive, primordial wisdom to seek out the best you can find for the bit, bob and chunk components. You will know who and what to pursue and to let go of – but you have to get out there  and breathe where the fresh creative winds are blowing…just over there a few steps out of your comfort zone. 
Ah! I see you are already on your way, O Fearless One. May the fire trine bless your socks off. 🙂
