Full Moon Phase: illumination

Moon in Taurus

Ruling Mahavidya: Kamala (The Goddess of Assurance) with Tara and Shodashi

Skill: connect with nature and visually "mainline" it to remain grounded

Negative Imprint: discomfort, harsh words and actions, out of tune, being too late, disconnected, aggression

Positive Imprint: determination, playfulness, spiritual attunement, fruitful, infusions, poise, good tidings

The "sight-seeing bus" we are metaphorically riding on all this month enters a forest as we begin the Full Moon phase today.  The light of this Full Moon is super-luminal, catching the branches in different ways, morphing into new scenes.  This forest is alive with the dreaming of all of the trees.

The Sabian symbol for the Full Moon is "a man with a rakish (unconventional) silk hat muffled against the cold, braves a storm."  Certainly this implies the theme of weathering, but we have what we need.  Silk is an exceptionally good insulator.  In the cold, most of our body's heat is lost without a hat, so with a silk hat, we are in good form.  We are prepared.  As for the rakish or unconventional part, well, who among us isn't?  Would we have it any other way?

The storms will come in many forms.  One storm is in the form of emotional storms and abrupt changes.  Cold comes down from the North, the land of the Winds of Change.  The Sacred Masculine is also coming from the direction of the North and will respond to the energetics that are in place.  Masculine energy will dominate during this Moon phase.  Since Uranus is involved in the dynamic over the Full Moon phase, we can trust that the changes that are happening in our lives are to designed to make things better.

But another storm blows open greater potential.  Things that were forgotten are remembered and brought back to life.  These are things from our younger days.  They are revitalizing and they help us engage more of our personal power.  When this happens, we are able to tap and actualize our potential, our mission, our destiny.

The Wisdom Goddess Kamala brings in back up  - the "big guns" you might say - with Tara and Shodashi for this Full Moon phase.  The Goddess of Assurance has made sure!  There is ample support in place not just to weather and personal or global storms, but also attune us to greater understanding of ourselves and the reflection of our lives, greater understanding of spiritual connections. and greater understanding of how to operate in the post-matrix world - the is emerging.  It's an altogether greater harmonic wave that comes in with this Full Moon.

Another Mahavidyas will join these three on Saturday for the real story of this Full Moon phase: Mars conjunct Pluto square Uranus.  I bet you can guess who it is...

The message is clear:  Rest assured.  Watch the scenes change.
