Full Moon Phase: realization
Moon in Pisces/Aries
Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (Goddess Who Fulfills Highest Desire) and Matangi (Goddess of the Wind)
Skill: flow with the energy instead of trying to drive it
Negative Imprint: overblown feelings, doubts about personal capabilities, feeling out of one's depth, continually searching for information at the expense of inner wisdom
Positive Imprint: laser-like powers to cut through and reveal, learning from the past, choosing differently, openness to inspiration
About an hour before the Full Moon, at 8:39 pm EDT/12:39 am UTC last night, the Sun released an M4.5- class flare with coronal mass ejection (CME).
At that time, the Moon was located at 15 Pisces 35 right in line with Chiron at 15 Pisces 20. In other words, the Moon, an hour away from supermax, had just met up with Chiron, picking up all of Chiron's energy - all that Chiron had to offer.
The Sabian symbol for this degree is "in a quiet moment, a creative individual experiences the flow of inspiration." This symbol is a perfect explanation of how this month's ruling Wisdom Goddess Shodashi works.
(It also belies the fact that the Sun and the Earth, both divine beings, are working in collaboration. But this is a story for another day.)
This symbol discusses how the flow, the course, the destiny of our lives is guided by higher sources. We are not in control when this symbol is highlighted. Fighting against the energy is futile. So is trying to move it forward. Relaxing into it with a neutral mindset is best. Relaxing into it may be a bit ambitious, but we can surely "go neutral" with anything. Going neutral expends no (as in zero) energy.
In essence, the solar flare and CME empowered divine efforts to bring us into proper alignment with what is in our highest and best interests at the soul level. This is key: what's good for the soul sometimes does not feel good to the human. When situations, conditions, and events conspire to take blinders off, it can be quite a shock. It can feel like a wound.
Under this energy, everything that is happening is happening to get everyone on a better course. As mentioned yesterday, it is too early to judge where things will end up. When corrections are made, things in our lives change. Trusting the process makes it easier. Accessing that neutral side of yourself (the side that understands adventure?) is a powerful act.
We also have a desire to understand things on a deeper level, so follow impulses to pick up certain books, look at certain things like photos, listen to certain pieces of music, etc. Assistance to better understand what is happening with each of us on a personal level is provided in these sources.
Another strong theme is feeling like we are at the same place we were sometime in the past. Venus moves to the degree of "a merry-go-round" which brings old patterns, cycles, habits, and situations that have us saying "not again." We can choose to do things differently this time around.
One other thing, moderation in most everything is important today.
Today we can release the need to control and put ourselves in the hands of wisdom. We can flow with the winds of change as we are carried along our path.
