Late LIBRA – ARIES ‘Blue’ Full Moon with URANUS (Apr 19): Choose to EmBody Freedom!

18 Apr

Dear Cosmic Friends on Planet Earth!

Feeling HER?

What a Full Moon coming up tomorrow 19-04-19!

  • The second (‘Blue’) FULL MOON in LIBRA – ARIES. First one was on March 20 – Spring Equinox! Both Full Moons frame the ARIES & LIBRA spectrum where it’s about Showing Up in our Authentic Self, and our Choices, and ‘Dances’ with Others.
    Show Up in Balance, was the motto for the Spring Equinox Full Moon.
  • On the ‘Tipping Point’ from LIBRA to SCORPIO – Choices lead to Change. Dive IN!
  • Opposite the SUN and URANUS on the ‘Settling / Embodiment Point’ – EmBody the New YOU!
  • On Good Friday – the MOON will go through the SCORPIOnic depths just 1 1/2 hrs after fullness, until Easter Sunday morning, when she rises in SAG!

And there’s more in the Cosmic Equation, informing our Choices, offering Balance, helping with Authenticity and Freedom, and with meeting Reflections aka ‘good matches’.

 

So many concentrations of Energies in the World, and in our Inner Worlds at present, and yet such a need for Balance – let’s honour and align with the Potential of this very special, edgy, cuspy Full Moon!

 

Here SHE is… exactly in her Fullness at 4:12 am PDT tomorrow April 19:

 

 

Showing up with an entourage of several strong concentrations of Planetary Energies – which of course represent Archetypes IN us:

 

  • The SUN and URANUS almost united (building up, exact on Apr 22), on the ‘Settling / Embodiment Point’ from ARIES to TAURUS.
    The SUN will enter TAURUS less than 22 hrs after the Full Moon, on Apr 20 at 1:55 am PDT.
    What a wake-up call!
    To show up in a new liberated way, get out of comfort zones and outmoded habits, emBody and ‘settle into’ Freedom!

 

  • The MOON on the other side of the Earth, pointing to the complementary ‘Alchemy / Tipping Point’ from LIBRA to SCORPIO where Choices lead to Change. Make the Choice, and Dive into the Alchemy that changes you!
    Just 1 1/2 hrs after the Full Moon, LUNA will enter SCORPIO at 5:41 am PDT, for a deep dive on Good Friday and Easter Saturday / Passover, until SHE crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ and rises into SAG, on Easter Sunday morning at 8:59 am PDT.

    What an Easter alignment!

 

 

  • And what a concentration in CAP (for the whole year, esp. this Spring & Summer):
    SATURN and PLUTO, close together yet not fully meeting until Jan 12, 2020, wrapping around the lunar South Node, in wide T-square with the Full Moon axis, and opposite the Lunar North Node in CANCER – the MOON’s abode.
    The Old Empire does Expire (activated already with the CAP New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse on Jan 5 / 6). Where / what’s yours?
    End of strive and effort, doing things the hard way to prove…?
    SATURN and PLUTO are both slowly moving / stationary, to go retro on Apr 24 / 29 (until Sept 18 / Oct 2) – more support for the unraveling and downsizing of the old / from within.

 

  • The Lunar North Node in CANCER helps us to counter-balance the ‘Old Empire’ by being warm, soft, gentle, loving, caring, inviting, and compassionate with ourselves and each other, and of course: naturally playful & creative. Finding our way Home.

 

  • The CAP – CANCER dynamic influences our choices and helps us to show up in a new, liberated way:
    Which choice (and which way of making choices!) feels more like an effort / heavy lifting / old expiring way of doing things, and which ones feel loving, caring, compassionate, take you to where you feel you belong and are welcome and ‘in your element’?
    Give yourself permission and / for compassion!

 

  • Also LILITH will join the Water World soon – on May 3, when the Wild ONE goes into PISCES for the next 9 months.
    Early PISCES (where LILITH will be until Aug) has a CANCER undertone: 
    Where do you feel natural ‘wild’ resonance and belonging, independent of your bio tribe? Being at-ONE allows us to be in our True Nature.
    Join us at our LILITH into PISCES Parlour on Apr 29 for co-attuning to ‘her’ 9-months immersion.

 

  • MARS presently (until May 15) in GEMINI going into square with NEPTUNE in PI on Apr 27 can create a tension between so much mental activity, debates, conflicts, and surrender into the vaster field of union and connectedness.
    MARS is also an ego Planet – helping us to get what we (think) we want while it’s often not what’s really best…

 

  • JUPITER now also retro (Apr 10 – Aug 11) in SAG helps us with Guidance from within.
    Seeing the bigger picture, understanding the whole story, and outgrowing it, into where freedom and happiness are calling.

 

 

Sooo, I felt called this time, to look up the

SABIAN SYMBOLS for both the Full MOON and the SUN at 29° LIBRA / ARIES.

Quite amazing what they reveal:

Starting with the
FULL MOON at 29°06′ LIBRA:

HUMANITY’S VAST AND ENDURING EFFORT TO REACH FOR KNOWLEDGE TRANSFERABLE FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.

Boston Public Library (Flickr Xynn Tii)

KEYNOTE: A deep sense of participation in, and commitment to, social processes which seek to bring to all men Truth and a greater Life.

The most characteristic trait in human nature is the ability to “bind time” (as Korzybsky once stated): to transfer to others as yet unborn the harvest of our conscious experiences and our deliberate endeavors. This ability far transcends instinct and biological mutations, for it is based on consciousness, choice, will and self-sacrifice for the sake of future human beings. It rests upon a deep feeling of the value of “community”; its use increases this feeling and eventually destroys the roots of loneliness.

This fourth stage symbol suggests the technique that makes a life truly “human.”
To join others in the vast process of a living civilization is to fulfill the basic implications of the human stage of cosmic evolution — a stage characterized by CONSCIOUS PARTICIPATION.”

The very end of LIBRA takes us here to conscious choices to contribute and participate socially, and help co-create a culture and a living civilization. To make not just knowledge but lived experience and wisdom available as a legacy for future generations.
And the core of CAPRICORN would be very content with this worthwhile effort and wise choice.

 

The SUN at 29°06′ ARIES:

“THE MUSIC OF THE SPHERES.  

Gustave Dore Ecosia

KEYNOTE: Attunement to Cosmic Order.

At the fourth stage of a five-fold sequence a technique is often presented. It is based on the experiences implied in the preceding symbols. In this case, what the individual who has entered into a new realm of possibilities of action should learn is the harmonic principles operating in this realm.
The music of the spheres is the celestial embodiment of principles of polyphonic interplay. The individual advancing “on the Path” should seek to understand and realize his / her place in the vast scheme of Humanity’s evolution, in the immense Chord of the Harmony of the Universe.

The message to the seeker for meaning which is implied in this symbol is TO LISTEN TO THE INNER VOICE; to listen without personalizing this Voice in a glamour-producing manner. It is the Voice of the Whole, of which one begins to realize that one is a tiny little part – yet a significant part, for every note of the universal Chord has its place and its ineradicable meaning.”   

What a beautiful note to end the Astro~News on…

 

Blessings to YOU, for the cosmic-human Dance of Life!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

LIBRA – ARIES Spring Equinox Super Full Moon (March 20) – Show up in Balance!

18 Mar

Happy Equinox, dear  Astro Friends!

…exact at 2:58 pm PDT on Wed March 20!
To tune in, come over to the equinoctial blog article.

Dancing LEO MOON on Fire / on the Wire – Photo by moi, March 18, 2019

WOW!
Just 4 hrs after exact Spring Equinox (exact at 2:58 pm PDT on March 20) comes the exact first Full Moon in SPRING – on the ‘Perfect Balance’ axis from the cardinal starting points of ARIES & LIBRA!

It’s the ‘opposite of the Harvest Moon’ – the closest Full Moon to Fall Equinox that always appears bigger and brighter than a ‘usual’ Full Moon, and provides extra Moonlight for harvesting into the evening hours.

As you already might wonder, looking at the waxing Moon at daytime – yes, it IS also brighter than a ‘regular’ Full Moon.
It’s the 3rd of three SuperMoons (Jan 20 / TLE, Feb 19, and March 20) early this year.

 

Naturally, the theme of Balance is heightened, via the polarity axis of SUN & MOON, with the Earth in the middle, and via the MOON’s entry into LIBRA.
On the Lunar ‘Perfect Balance’  Point from VIR to LI it’s about a VIRGO practice / technique that helps us come back into Balance.

  • What helps you to come into and BE in Balance?
    Balance of peaceful rest and activity, of stimulation and reflection, of giving and receiving, of focus and r & r time, of time at the desk and time in Nature, of creativity and inspiration, of seriousness and fun, of home time and public out-there time, of learning and sharing, balance in your diet, and in the body balance of the right and left side…
  • If there’s an imbalance how does that show up in your life, and what does that show you?

I learned esp. through Yoga & Meditation practice that Balance isn’t so much a way of equating this and that, the polar opposites, but finding the Still Point in the ’emptiness’.

With the FULL MOON on the ‘Perfect Balance’ cusp from VIR to LIBRA – how’s it going with our practice and lifestyle (VIR) that support and sustain Balance?
And how can we show up (ARIES) from a well (yet of course never perfectly) balanced place?

 

Here’s a raw & spontaneous video I created in the park yesterday, apropos the Full Moon – showing up again myself, after a wintry video ‘hibernation’. Enjoy!

 

Let’s take a look at the LIBRA – ARIES Equinox Super FULL MOON chart:

The FULL MOON will be exact at 6:43 pm PDT on March 20  – less than 4 hrs after the exact Spring Equinox at 2:58 pm PDT.

 

What a super-charged and multi-connected cosmic pattern, with several inter-linked aspect configurations / closed figures that describe inter-connected themes that are on now.

If you wanna know / get a sense: A Blue Kite, 2 Yods, a Cradle, an Ambivalence Triangle, and a Mutable Grand Cross. Can you geeks see them?
I won’t go into all those ‘gestalts’ (not even under the analytical VIRGO MOON, lol) – that would be quite an oeuvre – so let’s keep it simpler…

Btw, if you’d like to learn about Planetary Patterns, Aspects, and Aspect Configurations get in touch with me. I intend to offer a new Level 3 Intermediate Astro course with that focus in the Fall, and am happy to put you on my list of friendly interested folk. Ask me any preliminary questions – they’re always welcome. I’m here to support you.

 

Back to the EQUINOX FULL MOON:

For starters / most important things first:
Look at that close alignment of the SUN at 0°09′ ARIES – on the the ‘Emergence Point’ where Life Awakens and Arises – just barely behind CHIRON at 1°44′ AR!

Out of the PISCEAN unifying waters of Oneness New Life arises.
Just as snow and ice have (hopefully in your world too) melted, the rivers are running again, fresh Life emerges from the ground-up, and from the blossoming trees out and down!
Likewise, let’s rise again, into the freshness, newness, and NOWness of Life!

‘Simply’ showing up as your authentic Self can be very raw and vulnerable, yet is healing and renewing, says also CHIRON now freshly in ARIES activated by the FULL MOON ‘equation’ as it’ll be met by the SUN on March 22 – which brings consciousness to areas of life (whether personally – in ourselves, in relationships, in society…) that call us to take action / be pro-active, make a move and take the first step.
And ultimately, to be in our Presence in the NOW.

 

‘Back’ in PISCES is MERCURY retro (until March 28), about to unite with NEPTUNE for the second time (on March 24) helps us with awareness about, and letting go of old toxic energy & mind forms that used to draw us in – almost in an intoxicating and addictive way – and perhaps allowed us to check out.
Now we can see those patterns more clearly (M-r is doing its job to re-mind us of what’s usually under the radar!) – the first step to becoming FREE.

FREE to BE!

…and URANUS now freshly in TAURUS (since the day of the last New Moon on March 6!) cooperates, by kicking us out of old habits, stuckness, and attachments, to EmBody Freedom!

 

And, as you can see in the chart:
SATURN comes very close to PLUTO now (they won’t meet until Jan 12, 2020 but travel side by side this Spring, together with the South Node, all of them between 19° and 24° CAP).
Let the Old Empire Expire continues to be the motto – brought up with the Partial Solar Eclipse with SATURN, on Jan 5 / 6. In some sense a mantra for the year.

You’re probably well aware by now what these Old Empire themes are in your life, personally, relationally, and societally…

The CAP shadows of control and abuse are a good place to check in on:
How are we treated by others / allowing them to treat us, and do we treat other people, Nature, and ourselves…?

 

MARS now in TAURUS (until March 30)- the Cosmic Gardener – brings an Earth Trine support to the CAP Concentration of Old (SATURN / SN / PLUTO).
The MARS – PLUTO alignment is exact on March 20 too, and active all week. 

Let’s engage in slowly, steadily planting new seeds that outgrow the ‘wintry conditions’, and in cultivating the transformation…
Amazing how Nature always ‘accomplishes’ what needs to ‘get done’, and ‘just in time’ (a la SATURN in CAP), and is ever transforming (PLUTO).

How can that come in, in your Life?

 

Also in the ‘cosmic web’, and strongly activated by the Super FULL MOON:

The North Node of the MOON is in late CANCER, and accentuated by a Blue Kite, and also by a Yod pointing to this ‘sensitive point’ – clearly a ‘celestial pointer’ – to what?

A NN incentive for care, compassion, gentleness, a sense of belonging, and (end of CANCER has a PISCES undertone) emotional connection in the ‘Human / Soul Family’.
Even ‘just’ re-connecting with others who are close to your Heart is sooo good, and has ripple effects.

Follow the prompting when someone comes to mind and heart!
And notice how what you put out comes back – from different yet connected sources in the ‘web of life’.

 

Star Cluster in the Galactic Centre (NASA) – Heart of our Milky Way, at the end of SAG where the SUN travels just before the WINTER SOLSTICE Point

Another Yod points ‘down’ to JUPITER in late (double) SAG – very close to the direction of the Galactic Centre – The ultimate unknowing where ‘the journey goes’, yet we can be connected to the ‘knowing source’.
Such a potent time to connect with deep Heart Wisdom & Inner Guidance.

So rare to have two Yods activated at the same time – they are called ‘Finger of God’ / ‘Celestial Pointer.
And they describe a Journey where it’s not about the destination / outcome but the process – like a pilgrimage.

 

Wall St. Bull Sculpture

OH – and what’s with VENUS in AQ – meeting LILITH on March 22 (once a year), and squaring MARS in TAU (exact on March 21)?!
That tension’s been building up too, and comes to a release with the FULL MOON.
A VENUS – MARS charge that’s mirrored in the FULL MOON in (VENUS ruled) MOON in LIBRA – SUN in ARIES (ruled by MARS).
Literally a Feminine – Masculine conflict?
The AQ Free Spirit / Feminist vs. the TAU Bully / Stubborn Guy?
In any case, the Inner Feminine and Inner Masculine are in tension at this time – a good time to explore how that shows up for and IN you!

Yesss, our True Nature is FREE – says LILITH now in AQ.
And when we come together in groups, or with friends – all in the name of Freedom and Equality via our shared Humanity, we can stand up towards territorial claims and conflicts / bullying of some who pretend they ‘own the space’. 

Standing our ground and ‘not going away’ (MARS in TAU) can be much more effective when done in groups (AQ) – beating the age old ‘divide / disperse and rule’ strategy.

On another note / ‘higher octave’ the square between VENUS / LILITH in AQ and MARS in TAU brings up / helps with spaciousness and non-attachment / beyond claim of ‘ownership’ in relationships.
Which can be quite strong now / culminating with the Super Full MOON in LIBRA – ARIES.

 

In Summary – any and all of these themes help with showing up in Balance:

  • Let’s emerge and rise again, into the freshness newness, and NOWness of Life!
  • Let’s make a move and be authentic.
  • Let’s release old energy & mind forms that used to draw us in and kick us out of balance.
  • Let’s kick old stagnant habits, stuckness, and attachments, to EmBody Freedom!
  • Let’s stop feeding the ‘Old Empire’, and let it expire.
  • Let’s consistently plant new seeds that outgrow the ‘wintry conditions’, and cultivate the transformation…
  • Let’s be caring, compassionate, gentle, tune into a sense of belonging and emotional connection in the ‘Human / Soul Family’.
  • Let’s connect with deep Heart Wisdom & Inner Guidance.
  • Let’s stand our ground – together with others.
  • Let’s cultivate non-attachment in all our relationships.

 

Inner Balance is the best way of, if not prerequisite for effectively showing up / standing up in and for Peace, Justice, Equity, you name it – what calls you to be active at this time.

 

Blessings for the Fullness of the New Season!
Melanie
