Welcome to a Full Moon that symbolically shines a light on our current predicament. Full Moons are always time of culmination, representing the fullness of the previous New Moon’s energetic seed planting. This challenging full moon brings to ripeness energies of complexity and depth, involving the Aries and Libra polarity (ME vs YOU), in an oppositional T-Square, or Triad with Capricorn (Authority). These Cardinal, or action- oriented signs are also engaging another layer of the theme of truth VS lies as they aspect Neptune and Mercury in Pisces!
There is an energetic force in Aries season focused on taking action for the self. The Aries archetype ego identifies. Sometimes this can be expressed by simply taking what we want from others without apology or acting out (for whatever reason justified) to accomplish self-interests that seem like mere survival yet may be personal ambition. This Full Moon brings things to a head. The Moon in Libra is conjunct Juno, Goddess of contracts and marriage. She asks for fairness in all our dealings. Libra harmonizes the collective and brings to light imbalances. There is a strong need for justice and peace without righteousness, a focus on equal shares for all. The lunation of opposition is squared by Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn, it seems apparent that the excesses of those in Authority are exposed for all. There may also be some definitive hope in the potential for generosity by those in charge as the Greater Benefic Jupiter expands all he touches. Venus as dispositor or ruler of our lunation is in curious Gemini and currently conjunct Vesta, Asteroid goddess of the Sacred Flame and of Home and Hearth. It feels very appropriate for each of us to have to tend to our own inner flame of hope as we dedicate ourselves to the purpose of living in alignment with both Nature and our own personal truth, the inner hearth fire that lives within us all. It’s interesting to note that the Sabian Symbol ( a series of images intuited for the degrees of the zodiac by Psychic Medium Elsie Wheeler in 1920) for this lunation is “A gang of robbers in hiding” Blain Bovee says about this degree: “The task of getting around obstacles...a symbol expressive of the need to find a way out of a difficult situation.” Venus is in supportive trine to Mars and Saturn in Aquarius. Our collective need now is for new ideas, data, innovative techniques and out of the box thinking that has the potential to move ourselves out of a tough spot.
