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.

New Moon: 8 Aquarius 15

It’s been gratifying to read a lot of articles lately that emphasise the importance of cycles and of remembering that we are always in the midst of several of them at any given time. Even as some parts or persons in life may have us in standby or hibernate mode, this new moon initiates and empowers a cycle of This is Me Taking Progressive Action and here is why:

Mars will triumphantly bound into his home sector of Aries, shaking off an immense amount of heavy debilitating drench just hours after the exact Sun/Moon conjunction. The effect of this move alone cannot be overstated when it comes to how so many of us are feeling. Lethargy , disillusionment, a dispersed and incoherent mentality and even timidity, shame and victimhood will be hard-pressed to maintain a grip on the Self no matter where Aries operates in the mosaic of personhood.

The Sun and Moon are united in Aquarius, associated with both Make-it-Real Saturn and Genius Forerunner Uranus. We can plant the seeds for taking a Giant Leap and land firm footed!

All the planets are moving forward. With just a few exceptions, this is a time for applying these energies to/upon/in tandem with our cosm. Just make a note to keep in mind that virtually ALL of us will be feeling Fired Up and remember the lessons gleaned over the last year concerning how we use our autonomy, knowing the wisdom of limits and the necessity of the co- in co-creative work.

Uranus and Jupiter are in opposition. Gotta be you but you are not an island. Become more diplomatic even as you measure twice and cut once. Also, I note that legalities and endowments/gifts with a string or two attached of one sort or another are coming up a lot. Oppositions are opportunities to integrate via common denominators. If you can’t find any of those (and you checked that twice)…release that space so it’s available. Nature abhors a void so don’t fret about it for even half a minute.

Saturn is enforcing accountability, offering growth through and in spite of pain and a reckoning is due for those who have forgotten why they offered to serve.

Mercury is stepping into Pluto’s parlour. The powers that be have a proclamation, a fabulous upgrade or a termination notice. But first things first: are you the Pluto archetype in any of your various associations? I ask this because a great many people that I speak with have blind spots concerning their power. I sometimes wonder if subconsciously they don’t feel up to the responsibility that comes with it. Either way, if you’ve been feeling any of those descriptors listed in paragraph 2, watch that you don’t unwittingly become the dark side of the Eliminator and miss a brilliant opportunity for a holistic upgrade. ‘Impotent rage wears on you.’ – Jon Stewart

There is grace abounding for those with a will to be aware. First off and most obvious with a new moon is the Space to unify our thoughts and feelings. This is not the general state of affairs for the great majority of us and I am celebrating that union of frequencies particularly. There is grace in Venus in Pisces: she is exalted here and we can choose what we attract to us which automatically edits our mindset and behaviour. Which wolf are you feeding? There is grace in maintaining the status quo in terms of our approach: the marker for our best growth forward remains in flexible yet grounded, wheat from chaff sorted, know-it-by-its-fruits Virgo. As we rise daily to the Challenge – even as we acknowledge there is no map of the terrain – we can use these qualities to advance with as much confidence as is possible in these bizarre times.

Can you hear that rooster crowing? I sure can. 🙂

New Moon: 7 Capricorn 59

 

cypnmdec2016

 

Ruler of the New Moon: Saturn in Sagittarius and your natal Saturn point. What do you want to make real? How much time and energy are you willing to invest?

If initial or first step ‘building blocks’ for a special endeavor begun around the time of the last new moon are showing themselves to be somewhat out of alignment with needs on the ground, avoid extreme thinking. It isn’t really accurate to decide that this spells automatic failure OR that it is ok to paper over the cracks…take your time in all assessments.

If you have a lot of Capricorn/Saturn energy naturally, hang in there! This unsettling space weather will lighten up in the next ten days. Meanwhile, do not believe any voice in your head that tells you you are losing your marbles or that everything is crumbling. Something is bubbling up…and it is not easy to bubble up through concrete-like grey matter!  (try to) Make patience your mantra until your a-ha moment comes.

I, too, am trying to practice what I preach. I have been having troubles with the internet connection, a crashed computer – the only one with Microsoft Word software on it, major household issues and two new in-depth reading requests (besides the subscription work) all at the same time –  oooph!

I understand there are limits to what I can do well. Those limits are there for a reason, whether I understand or agree. I can only commit to flexibility, service and quality within those boundaries. The rest is not about me. This same logic applies for your situations, too. There is a freedom and spaciousness in that, you know. Cool, eh?  🙂

be well,

– weaver
