What seeds did we personally sow on the Aries New Moon a few weeks ago? All New Moons are seed sowing time but this is emphasized during the Aries New Moon right around the Spring Equinox. It’s like a ‘double-double’ for intention setting & new undertakings. As the Moon grows into the fullness of her light & embraces the energy of Libra, partner sign to Aries, we have the opportunity to look around & pick through the seedlings that have now (hopefully), sprouted in our life. Are we on track? Are we headed in the direction that we had intended? That’s the beauty of the Lunar Cycle; it allows us to take measured steps along our journey into becoming.
Aries always suggests something new & previously not experienced; something bold, possibly requiring a measure of courage. Libra, on the other hand, demands that we pause & deliberate on the actions that we are taking or thinking of taking. Libra wants us to LISTEN to the incoming, whether it’s actual advice from real people around us or messages via dreams, intuitions, or observations. This Full Moon is jam-packed with potential in terms of insight, action & possible evolution of self.
Moon & Sun are in square alignment to Pluto in Capricorn, now at 28CAP33. Just days away from his Retrograde Station. It’s the last kick at the can before the ‘dwarf giant’ takes another backward glance into Capricorn. This Cardinal arrangement is all about developing the appropriate way to exercise our personal power. Aries screams independence while Libra reminds us to take others into account as we push forward. Pluto holds the reins & reminds us that all actions must be based on justice & that it is our individual responsibility to discern where in that sometimes ambiguous pool of morality & ethics, we fall. Once we establish our own inner moral compass, do we have the guts (Aries) & the decency (Libra) to hold to our course? As previously mentioned, the key to successful management of all aspects of our lives is the ability to both hear & listen carefully.
Venus & Mars are now separating from each other bringing to a close their combined journey through Aquarius & into Pisces. Venus is at her peak of prowess in Pisces, able to fully embody the supplicant, the believer, the adherent. This is where compassion & grace can operate at full bore. If you were born with this placement, you are blessed, indeed, able to forgive without limitation, able to ‘see’ the divine in every being.
Saturn in Aquarius is in a happy alignment to this Full Moon suggesting that we can access our inner resolve to help us to stand in our integrity in the face of any challenges. Draw comfort & support from those who are like-minded. Let them become the community that bolsters you in the days ahead.
There is quite a beautiful cosmic alignment between Jupiter & Neptune. Both in Pisces, the god of opportunity joins forces with the divine within. We can all maximize our connection to whatever spiritual syntax moves us to faith & good works. Spirituality takes many forms so cherish your own sense of it while at the same time respecting others. We must all open ourselves to the POSSIBILITY of a multi-layered spiritual dialogue. Listen carefully as others speak to you so that you can truly understand what their heart holds.
We are in a time of transition. Collectively, we are making on-the-spot choices that will affect the entire global community. Personally, each of us has our own mountain to climb. With Saturn square the nodes, the call to action is to find our strength & to carefully refine it; to ‘learn’ ourselves; to establish clear boundaries & to truly know what they are. We are only limited in our power & ability by our own reactions to the events of our lives. We can choose to be the master or we can succumb to the role of the victim. That’s where free will comes in. We, each one of us, are the variable within the cosmic equation.
The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is:
What needs to be re-imagined? What has been ‘lost in the shuffle’, misplaced? What can we go back to so as to more fully embody it? Have we lost our compass point of ‘true north’? Have we been diverted or even misdirected so that we are not proceeding as we should? Here is an admonition to be mindful, to pay attention, to remember who we are & what we hold to be true.
Again, the last few years have been an exercise in trauma both collectively & personally. No matter where we stand on some of the issues that are currently ‘in the air’, we have all had to adjust in ways that we had NEVER imagined. As Pluto prepares to Station Retrograde on April 29, 2022, just shy of the end of the Capricorn phase, we must all get CLEAR about our perception of reality & then create a strategy to support that clearly thought-out perception. Remember, after Capricorn, Pluto moves into Aquarius, the energy of the collective, the future, the web of humanity &, interestingly, the source of all invention. We must be ready for the changes that will inevitably take place as this new Aquarius energy is transformed. Are we ready?
As always, energy is neutral & will flow in the path of least resistance. Each one of us, individually is the variable in the mix. We must refine ourselves to be like the river that is flowing freely so that we move with the energy. We do not want to be caught in a dam of our own making and somehow miss the opportunity to merge with the ocean ahead.
The Aries New Moon opened up the potential to make a fresh approach to long-standing situations in our personal lives. (Think carefully about the Aries part of your natal chart. How could you do something ‘NEW’ in this area of life?) The Libra Full Moon encourages us to shut our mouths & quiet our minds & really LISTEN to the feedback we might be getting on the actions that we have been taking. Once we have listened carefully, heard the incoming &, most importantly understood what that feedback actually means, then we can make any necessary adjustments so that we get the maximum return on the efforts that we make as we work hard to create the reality that best reflects who we ACTUALLY are deep down inside where truth lives unencumbered by artifice.
