Gibbous Moon Phase: trust

Moon in Aries

Ruling Mahavidya: Kamala (The Lotus Goddess)

Skill: trust in the processes of change that are underway

Negative Imprint: overlooking, ignoring, neglecting, too serious, "busy bodies," emotional outbursts, frustration, repressed emotions 

Positive Imprint: uplifting others, self-reliance, opportunities, inner child, wisdom from errors, appreciation, sharing feelings and happiness

The sights on our sight-seeing journey through life today may be rather surprising and potentially earth-shattering.  

Earth-shattering isn't necessarily a bad thing.   Paradigms change with shifts in conditions and circumstances.  An inner feeling of something busting loose or breaking free - an inner "quake" - can be delightful.

Various levels of personal and global change can be expected today with the Moon's conjunction with Uranus.  (Exact conjunction at 12:30 pm ET/5:30 pm UT).  Remember that change is the name of the game this year.  Wise owls are getting good at handling, flowing, and adapting to changes.

Be aware that the conjunction of the Moon and Uranus is at the degree of "a bomb which has failed to explode is safely concealed."  This is the degree of Uranus back at the New Moon in Aries, the astrological New Year, in a year where Uranus rules.  Be aware that Uranus energy prompts accidents, so take extra care while driving.  Leave the craziness in another dimension.  Let it pass you by.

This energy also brings up things that need to be released or discharged.  It's a day of clearing the air.  We want to be mindful of defusing things before they get out of hand.  The potential damage is far-reaching under this energetic.  Lower octave expression of this comes in the form of tantrums and generalized anger.  The best dynamics maintain respect, so aim for this with those who come into your sphere.

If you find yourself in a situation where things are not going according to plan or not working in some way, try another way.  Recombine the existing elements or bring in new ones.  Re-do's are effective today, but they require invention.  Creative powers of invention are super-high today, so follow through on any impulses.

Themes involving burdens, responsibilities, overload, and taking on other people's burdens, responsibilities, and loads also show up today.  This brings light to where we feel appreciated/unappreciated and supported/unsupported.  If you are out of balance between what you are giving or doing and what you are receiving or having, today the universe asks you to come back into balance.  What do you need to do to come back into balance?

The best guidance today is to lighten up and embrace the new things that are rising up.  Gibbous Moon phase is the time when we are tested to trust what is happening.  Uranus always puts us where we need to be, so we can rest assured.  Additionally, Kamala, the Wisdom Goddess who is The Goddess of Assurance certainly shares her gifts for this.

The sight-seeing bus is climbing a high mountain, lifting us up from things that are earth-shattering.  Today we will trust the process.

(Note:  The Sun released two coronal mass ejections yesterday:

1)  M2.2    6:53 am ET/11:53 am UT   26 Pisces   "a New Moon reveals that it is time for people to go ahead with their different projects" - This is energy for new beginnings, diversifying, and an amplification of any intentions/wishes/goals put in place back at the New Moon on October 24 and also for the upcoming New Moon on November 22.  The Moon was trine Saturn at the time of the CME, so structures are the focus - structures of life, including the structure of relationships, families, living situations, work conditions, health, anything.  The intentions set at the next New Moon will be powerful so begin thinking about what you want to infuse into the structure of your reality and collective reality.  This flare is believed to have been much stronger, but was blocked by the Sun somewhat.

2) M6.5    5:40 pm ET/10:40 pm UT   03 Aries   "a cameo profile of a man in the outline of his country" - This is energy for making a mark.  We make an imprint and have an effect.  We are concerned with seeing how we fit in to the bigger picture.  In the terms I used in yesterday's report, we were trying to see the forest for the trees.  The Sun is directly engaging with anyone who is aware and open to such an engagement, offering information to help us make a mark.  The information is personal to each of us, but collectively helps us hold the structure of a new way of life as the old way dissolves.  The Moon was in square to Mars at the time of the CME, empowering Mars as it makes it way to conjunction with Pluto and square to Uranus on Saturday.

We are building toward the Full Moon on Thursday.  Moon phases are four days and Thursday through Sunday is going to be intense.  No worries.  When you know what's going coming, you prepare.  You can watch it swirl around you, out of the fray.)
