Full Moon Phase: enlightenment

Moon in Sagittarius

Ruling Mahavidya: Bhuvaneshvari (The World Nurse), Tara (The Rescuer)

Skill: bring your life in balance

Negative Imprint: pomposity, demands, noise

Positive Imprint: justice, reveling in the magic of nature

This has been quite a Full Moon phase!  We have today and tomorrow remaining in the phase, so the energy of the "Flower Full Moon" is still riding high.

The primary theme of today's energy involves people wanting (demanding?) to be heard and dramatically stating their case.  The desire for justice is strong.  It may get noisy!  Some may resort to aggressively pressing their beliefs.  Some may feel misunderstood or maligned.  Some may face resistance if they are trying to change things up.  Be wise about what, when, and where you reveal something, and make sure you are holding the highest intentions.  People will respond best to what they feel is justified.  If you find yourself winding up, turn down the volume of your voice.

Intuition is very high today, but our physical energy is lower as we come off of the Venus-Uranus conjunction.  Venus moves to the position known as "fairies dancing in the setting Sun" (hence today's photograph) and brings the energy of spiritual guidance and protection.  It's magical energy for sure and will bring elements of beauty into our lives.  However, along with this we also have the potential to become lost in self-delusion.  We don't want to wander off into Never Never Land.  Keep it real and stay on course.

We are in the final days of the Mars retrograde and the re-evaluation of how we disperse and focus our energy and resources.  We are re-examining where we devote our time.  Situations and relationships that are not in our highest and best interests are being revealed.  There is a big push to help us see this.  The Mars energy is trying to bring things into balance.  The key to understanding this is based in our feelings.  Our feelings lead the way for us.  Pay attention to what you do not want to do.  What do you need to change?  It is not impossible.  You can take baby steps.  All the assistance that is needed is readily available.

Finally, with the overview for 2014, I discussed how Gaia Sophia, the  divine being embodied as our planet, and the aspects of herself known as the Mahavidyas would make herself and themselves known in a big way this year.  This certainly seems to be true as many people are writing about the things that are happening in their lives after they ask for assistance from them.  The viral video of Tara the Family Cat rescuing the little boy from the attacking dog could not be a more perfect example.  Tara, the Mahavidya who is known as "The Rescuer" is certainly revealing herself.  In case you missed it, here it is (apologies for the CNN report - please disregard the talking heads):

Tara winks at the parliament of wise owls.
