Gibbous Moon Phase: magic; trust

Moon in Gemini/Cancer (8:08 pm ET/1:08 am UT)

Ruling Mahavidya: Kali

Sabian Symbol for Lunar Month: an Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe (self-empowerment, personal sovereignty)

Skill: take it easy

Negative Imprints:  power struggles, pushiness, trying to win sympathy, burning out, self-sacrifice, the unexpected

Positive Imprints: foreshadowing, foundations, symbolism, spiritual retreat, catalysts for change, inner transformation, "nothing happens by accident"

The Sun has awakened from a lull on this eve of the Full Moon, awakening something deep inside of us and sweeping the field with change.

At 4:47 am ET/9:47 am today, the Sun released an M1.1 class flare but did not eject a coronal mass.  But it's bubbling, and the source is sunspot 2253, which is the size of Jupiter!  Solar junkies like to call these "behemoth sunspots." reports that the behemoth sunspot's magnetic field harbors potential for X-class flares.

This is a big deal as it comes on an energetic power punch of a day!  The Sun is making aspects to both Uranus and Pluto today.  This is one of the most powerful days of the year.  The Sun made exact square to Uranus at 3:36 am ET/8:36 am UT today.  This was a fiery furnace blast with Uranus at the degree of "a bomb which failed to explode is now safely concealed" and the Sun at "fire worshippers meditate on the ultimate realities of existence."

Meditate on that for a minute.

Actually, it is a good meditation all day long because spiritual retreat, contemplation, and inner work is a strong feature of today's energy.

Does the idea of peace come to mind?

The Sun's contact with Uranus brings change, but changes that favor the good side because the bomb's explosion has been averted.  This has been the case all year long because Uranus has been the main player since it was conjunct the New Moon in Aries on March 30, 2014 (the natural new year that sets the energetic imprint for the entire year) and was located at the degree then that it is now.  We have been graced.

About an hour after it made square with Uranus, the Sun released the flare (4:47 am ET/9:47 am).  Though there was no coronal mass ejection, we can still identify the energetics that were amplified.  This is determined by the degree of the Moon at the time (long story).  The Moon was located at 22 Gemini - the Sabian symbol "dancing couples crowd the barn at a harvest festival."  My favorite interpretation of this symbol is from the Queen of the Sabian Symbols, Lynda Hill, who writes that this is the energy of "celebrating the warmth and providence of the Earth."  A good sign.

Next on the agenda in the stars today is the Moon moving to opposition with the Galactic Center at 1:15 pm ET/6:15 pm UT, bringing in galactic frequencies and even more energy to sculpt the future.  This would be a really nice time for a flare.

At 6:30 pm ET/11:30 pm UT, the Sun will make exact conjunction with Pluto.  This energetic has been building for days, but the exact contact at this time and will ignite electro-magnetics within the solar system.  There is data that correlates conjunctions of the Sun and a planet with tectonic/geologic/volcanic activity, so this could occur today.  The conjunction is happening at the degree of "an ancient bas relief carved in granite remains witness to a long forgotten culture."

The culture has returned, is gathering, and is forming the spiritual and physical infrastructure of the Second Renaissance on Earth.

On the personal level, the energy tries to help us liberate ourselves from restrictions and limitations.  This is called growth.  When we go beyond where we are, we grow.  It has been happening at a rapid clip this year and is extremely powerful today.  So go inside yourself and see what wants to come out or be released from stone.

At 8:08 pm ET/1:08 am UT, the Moon will move into Cancer, fully activating the Capricorn-Cancer axis and polarity of energetics that pack so much potential for shift this month.  This is the energy of Kali- the Destroyer, the Reckoner, the Transformer.  The big bang comes tomorrow night with the Full Moon around midnight.  Energetics will be unleashed to rectify and satisfy throughout the remainder of the month.

Symbolism is at a high today, so pay close attention to signs, synchronicities, and patterns.

Catalysts for the future are activated today.  The future is foreshadowed.

We are empowering ourselves this month as our "inner chief" claims our personal power within the collective of humanity.  The Chiefs are standing up today!

A special Sunday report follows tomorrow.
