I’ll keep this relatively short and sweet
Full moon (peak of short-term plans and emotional fulfillment) tonight in Capricorn (sign of cardinal earth- enterprising, respect driven, authoritative) at 10:20. Sun (consciousness and hero self) is opposite it in Cancer (sign of cardinal water- nurturing, domestic, emotionally driven) of course. The Moon forms a conjunction with retrograde Pluto (body of unearthing and rending for transformation) in Capricorn. Mars (body of ego and survival) sits near the Sun in Cancer.
- Do you continue to search for what emotionally gives you comfort or do you move towards what give you fulfillment on a practical level?
- How do you find balance between your traditional roles and new relationships that challenge you?
- Is the draw of changing public roles and fame more important than your drive to set down roots at home?
It’s a battle of the traditional mother and father. Who will win? The child who loves and opens themselves to the best of both figures
If you feel a bit like you’ve been walking an emotional high wire, you’re not alone. The new moon will happen at 2:57 pm Eastern at 28 degrees of Aries.
We might feel ourselves holding our breathe to keep ourselves in check emotionally. Asserting ourselves when we feel ourselves being emotionally threatened may occur. We might even be in a situation where we find ourselves scrambling for a new way to be our old self. It’s cool though. Or rather, stay cool.
Keeping a cool head is a definite good idea. Remembering that the core of who we are won’t change is a good piece of advice to hold onto in these choppy New moon in Aries waters. Also remember that Aries doesn’t handle fear well. Aries often inspires us to run forward when fear overtakes because it would rather take action than be seen as a coward. I’m not suggesting you run but a moderately placed walk away from your fears and the old might be a good idea.
Walk around. Smell the roses, the perfume, the diesel fuel, whatever floats your boat. Soon you’ll see that you’ve covered miles of new terrain by just focusing on the small things that make you happy. Seems like a great way to start the transition into Taurus Sun Season.
You can always schedule a consultation to get a personal understanding of how this new moon will affect you. Til then, be cool.
Mars moved from the airy sign of Aquarius to the whirlpool that is Pisces on 1/12/2015. All of that “get up and go” didn’t just up and leave but it is probably looking for some direction. The planet Mars signifies our self assertion, our ego (in the most personal way), our drive, and our sexual energy among a few other things. Named after the God of war, it doesn’t seem like Mars could get much traction in the dreamy sign that is Pisces. Don’t take this to mean that nothing happens; it just means that there is a scattered approach to the fight.
Why? Because Pisces is mutable water. It is flexible and interested in bridging two distinct worlds, the seen and unseen. Pisces puts an emotional spin on every planet that inhabits its realm but this emotion resides in the principle of compassion. That warrior energy will be filtered thru that lens now; so while we still want what we want, we are a little less likely to be outwardly cutthroat about it. That also means that some mild escapism and passive aggression could take place. It is the shadow side of compassion. The desire to not harm others sometimes shows up in avoiding conflict in a myriad of ways.
This is a good time to figure out HOW you fight. Is it fair? Is it inline with your core values? Is there a way for all parties to walk away with what they want? Mars goes out to get what it wants. It works in a way that is opposite to Venus, which uses attraction. To make the best use of Mars in Aries, we have to focus on aligning our drive and self assertion to what Pisces wants. This means seeking out opportunities to love up on humanity. Go deep into our personal dreamworlds to find the things that make our hearts sing. Seek out art that touches your soul and make some new art for yourself and others. Search for healthy escapes from the drudges of everyday life. Bravely connect with the Divine; ask questions but don’t get caught up on concrete answers.
Big bad Aries will be here until 2/19/2015 so we have time to go out and make the world a bit more beautiful, a bit more dreamy, a bit more compassionate. Besides Pisces may not always know exactly how things will happen but when you combine it’s enormous capacity for faith in the unknown with Mars, the impossible is nothing more than a word and a challenge.
Tonights first full moon of 2015 occurs in the sign of Cancer. It is opposite the sun in Capricorn and forms a square to both the North Node in Libra and Uranus in Aries. Lots of cardinal signs involved but there may not be a lot of movement.
Why? Well Cancer is an sign that can impart heavy emotional weight to whatever planet it holds. The moon signifies our emotional nature. Lots of feelings have most likely been swelling for the last day or two and we are looking for a way to release them. Unfortunately, they don’t always come in an orderly fashion.
Which leads to the squaring of Uranus and the moon. Our subconscious need to be emotionally driven is having a difficult time being reconciled with what may come as an unexpected need to assert our individual self. Uranus in Aries gives sudden insight to our own selves as a single unit. This is great but it may not lend its self to a healthy manner in dealing with our emotional turbulence.
The sun in Capricorn focuses our attention onto being responsible and taking measurable steps. This is in opposition to the moon in Cancer needing to feel our way through. Practical and emotional don’t mix easily for most so tensions could rise internally.
The north node in Libra urges us to connect to others to further our purpose but that straight line is being intercepted by the moon in Cancer’s need to emotionally protect self first.
These are not simple configurations but they are livable. Allowing the flow of emotions to come is great. Taking practical steps to act on them is a good next step. Connecting to others in a way that allows for emotional growth of one’s self is another.
Cardinal signs inspire us to do, to move. Remember that small measured steps is still movement.
