Full Moon 4/29/18

Hi everyone!

The artical  beneath was written by Patricia Liles who is one of the Astrologers that I admire. I really like her writting and I agree with her interpretation. Her insight mirrors mine…and she says it SOO well!!!  I will be adding some as soon as possible about this Full Moon time and things. Not much time to do an audio this time, but this is well worth reading about this Full Moon in Scorpio on Sunday the 29th of April!

 

Dear Friends,

Full Moon is Sunday, April 29 at 6:58PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT)

This is an intense full moon with energy similar to an eclipse. It is an extremely important time to be mindful of your reactions and to take responsibility for them. If you are triggered in any way, you have an opportunity to look at those deep patterns that may be coming to the surface and work through them with focused and disciplined intention. Get help if you need it.

On the other side of this personal inner crisis energy is the support for expansion and the possibility of moving into something new and different.  This is also a good day for gratitude and honor as you celebrate all of your accomplishments up to this point in your life without being attached to how they have defined you.  Allow this full moon to support you in creating new intentions for redefining who you are.

Blessings,

Lena

Scorpio Full Moon

Sun in Taurus ~ Moon in Scorpio 9º

Sunday, April 29, 6:58 PM Mountain Daylight Time

(Monday, April 30 12:58 AM Greenwich Mean Time)

Scorpio’s Full Moon gifts can be plentiful ~ alignment with the feminine mysteries, diving deep, dying to the past, finding renewal, and powerful life force energy releasing when shadowy subconscious material is brought into the light where it can be named.  These are gifts we may be challenged to receive this Full Moon.  Where Scorpio, Pluto and the 8th house live is where your shamanic abilities to engage the invisible world lie.

This Moon that is the culmination of all that was set in motion at the Aries New Moon is acknowledging us for the steps we have taken towards breaking free and stepping up.  We have completed the first of three Mercury retrogrades in the fire signs.  We are learning to honor our own divinity while relinquishing what cannot be controlled.  The chart here, especially seen in the aspects, asks for significant adjustments, adaptation, regrouping to include who and what doesn’t quite go down easily, resolution of stressful situations, swallowing your pride and man upping with apologies and taking steps to act in a new way.  Scorpio and Pluto are powerful medicines asking everything of you before granting the joy of rebirth.

We bow to the previous Aries New Moon as we reach culmination here at Full Moon for the experiences we have undertaken, crisis overcome and commitments we have made towards breaking free and stepping up.

The Taurus Sun and Scorpio Moon are squaring the North and South Nodes (Leo/Aquarius) within a degree forming a Grand Square in fixed signs ~ aligning all the fixed, power signs at cross purposes generally known to be a difficult array and causing stressful events.  Involving the Nodes suggests it’s a growth process for us where we need to let go, draw on skills we have attained, and take steps on that edgy new path (sucking up the growing pains we encounter).

North Node in Leo is exactly conjunct asteroid Ceres, so our basic bonding with parents where our self worth has its fundamental roots is our point of growth here.  How we nurture our own hearts, how we can step into the power of self love, and recognize our divine origins will measure how well we can love another as our self in another form.

The ruler of the Full Moon is Pluto, but also Mars.  Mars was the traditional ruler of Scorpio until Pluto was discovered in 1930 and given rulership over Scorpio.  And notably, Pluto and Mars are closely conjunct in Capricorn.  Mars loves the discipline and focus of Capricorn and is exalted there.  Pluto/Mars are in a special creative aspect, a quintile or 72º relationship to the Full Moon, so we have a portal, if activated by our intentions and rituals, focused on the Moon to connect deeply with the mysteries that this emissary of the feminine, water power sign Moon holds.  Call up the source of your creativity, fertility, and powers to destroy what you have created in the past and dance with your ability to heal yourself from the cellular to the cosmic levels.  This Scorpio Moon is rich, warm, deep and powerful asking you to go out into the night and return renewed and refreshed having touched something deep inside yourself that nourishes beyond the needs of the body.

Call on your ancestors.  With Vesta, representing that part of ourselves that we hold sacred and dedicate to a higher calling, Saturn, Pluto and Mars all in Capricorn, our elders, ancestors and wise ones are waiting to be called on to support us.  Mars has been given the mission of activating the powerful forces of Saturn’s discipline and experienced wisdom geometrically stronger being in its own sign as well as Pluto’s ruthless transformative force to eliminate stagnation.  Call on your ancestors, your allies, your guides to stand with you at this great shifting time.  Learn to ask for help.  Tremendous support is available to you for the asking from the invisible world.

Earlier in this week, Pluto has turned retrograde for the next six months; it’s powerfully at standstill now at 21º Capricorn. Here is an invitation to come and sit under the Tree of Life with your own inner elder and be taught by your own inner shaman.

Chiron entered a new sign this week for the next seven or so years.  Now at 0º Aries the powerful point of new beginnings, it is welcomed by Juno 0º Aries, asteroid of intimacy and committed relationship and where in weakened expression, we give away our power to another.  Your intimate commitments may be under scrutiny and tested at this Full Moon.  Chiron will be taking us on a new healing journey with our masculine energies symbolized by Aries.  We will explore our freedom, our courage, and deepen our self-awareness.  Chiron will also retrograde in a couple of months to clear up any unfinished business in Pisces.  Chiron’s purpose is to transform our wounds into wisdom so we can be present for others, to mentor and teach, and to bring us into holistic alignment with our body, mind and spirit utilizing earth based medicine from the plant and animal worlds.

‘There is always help along the way’ wise ones have shared, and this Full Moon is no exception.  Who shall we look to?

Saturn at 9º Capricorn offers a channel to diffuse the lockdown of the Grand Square in the fixed power signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius all 9º).  Saturn trines the Sun and sextiles the Moon – both aspects of ease and opportunity.  We can look to Saturn’s long view of time remembering we are moving through a long, multi-year period of major transformation here on our planet.  We can lean into Saturn’s patience and propensity for order and discipline as a way to deal with the chaos that is arising – both inner and outer.  With Saturn trine the Sun in earth signs, it points to getting your life in order on the physical plane, taking those steps that give you peace of mind and stability in your day to day life and free you up to move on your creative ambitions.  Keep your physical body well grounded to better process the frequencies that are bombarding you and keep you out of mental spin.

Mercury in fiery Aries is also in a helping position to the Grand Square created by the Sun/Moon and North/South Nodes.  Mercury, our communicating and networking ally keeping us mentally objective and neutral, trines the North Node and sextiles the South Node.  Here we are helped to learn new ways of communicating our truth to others, and we are able to let go of our fixed positions as we share our personal truth.

Finally, Neptune in Pisces 15º trines both the Full Moon in Scorpio and nearby Jupiter giving us the watery ruled emotional resources we need to turn this challenge of a Grand Square in to nourishment for our spiritual growth as we continue to use forgiveness, acceptance and surrender for ourselves and others.  We learn with each turning of the Moon to hold our lives as a choice.  Which will it be here? Crisis or Opportunity?

Sanctuary for a deep and poetic dream! Full Moon in Virgo!

All is living in the great dream upon the Earth our Mother, and can be experienced in a whole way…..a holy way…full spiral. Life and consciousness vibrates Through ALL the beings;  be they plant, animal,mountain,stream,ocean,wind rain, all the natural forces, all of nature has spirit and consciousness beyond most humans perception. Humans were not always so limited in perception. We got taken over by some strange ideas and many of our original ways of being and living and honoring life were destroyed . Some of us are starting to remember. Humans are not the all of it… at all…… forgetting our connection to ALL of the natural world has made us a sort of rogue species much of the time. This place, this life is for ALL of life for we ARE connected , and a part of the great spiraling heart of life! These beings you may call inferior, are really much wiser than you perceive in your limited awareness. They are one with the dream and in tune with the natural order and the mystery of life. They are awake in the dream and are our teachers! For humans we need to remember how to Wake up and Dream!  Ask yourself  where do you experience the divine most easily…..why are you afraid of the wild and the natural. Ask your dog a question and look him in the eye and he will tell you the truth….. if you listen. The mighty glorious trees give music and medicine……every time…if you listen with your whole being and not just the limited logical mind.  The Dog teachers show compassion and loyalty beyond any human I have ever seen, and yes they DO feel loneliness and …….they were never meant to be kept alone, they are social and want to play and interact with a pack! You would never leave your child alone for long even if she is smart and good and will do no harm! Dog people love unconditionally. Why is this not highly valued and honored by some!  And the Tree people, Oh! they never have much of a problem with blocked chakras!  They teach us of a way to live fully in the body….all of our energy systems can be shown and healed by the trees.  They have incredible information systems with all the plants around them, and the wind is music through them that sings to  souls  in tune, that  can never be forgotten, a brother bridge with earth and sky……always. They are pillars of wisdom and home to all land creatures..and so much much more! These are  only 2 examples not even given in depth!

Enjoy the Full Moon in Virgo. Consider asking her to help you bring the big dream of oneness into focus for you to work with. Sing her a song , light a candle, say a prayer of thanks, do a dance for her, or some form of reciprocation to show thanks , some kind of offering. Then listen  and dream and pay attention to subtle clues inside you and otherwise. She is a modest Goddess and not going to club us over the head,but maybe she should!!!

Moon in Virgo Opposite Neptune

The question is clear today…how to honor spirit in matter. Virgo is about habits and skills and sacred, natural timings. Look to nature and consider (con-sider means with the stars), a daily ritual of thanks,or of special prayer and offering for our ancestors…..or for connecting with the animal and plant spirits that call to you! What had been undervalued is now being asked to be put back  into our everyday lives..with awe and respect. This can also include parts of ourselves and parts of humanity and any of the parts that have been deemed unimportant by the pseudo  powers that be …like poor people, or, animals and nature …..the list can go on. This does include too taking time for noticing and having reverence for the awesomeness in life everyday…….as a normal thing…we can make what we want normal  now.  We really have to, and we get to, as a practical matter of making relationship with what sustains us and supports us on all levels as we walk upon the Earth.

Half the failures of this world arise

from pulling in one’s horse

as he is leaping.”

-Augustus W. Hare

So let’s give our wise animal body it’s head . (That’s an Aries thing we can all do!)   Let go of control – so actual power can come on in…

whose dog and cat are not the better for it.”
