First Quarter: step out, take action

Moon in Aquarius

Goddess of Wisdom: Kali, Goddess of Endings and Beginnings

God of Will/Desire:

Skill: growing up

True Alignments: inspiration, things happening in the blink of an eye, ability to see beyond the surface, piercing the veil, aware of signs and synchronicities, child-like wonderment, fascination, desire for deeper wisdom, nurturing, bringing together different pieces of information, new solutions revealed

Catalysts for Change: not taking a risk when an opportunity is presented, talking too much and not listening enough, over-disclosing at inappropriate times or situations, distasteful, denying self over others, the continual search on the outside, for something missing on the inside, overburdened with responsibility, confrontations, drama that is not entertaining

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a Jewish rabbi performing his duties"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres"

The Great Mirror in the Sky continues to grow and shine, and today it sets up issues that reveal the two poles or opposites of several things:

POWER V. POWERLESS:  The Sabian symbols that are in effect today involve either children or powerful adults.  From the broad view of this, the "innocent" or "less aware" part of us may feel in over our heads with some things, outmatched, or at the mercy of other people and their feelings and actions.  Situations where our naïveté became or is becoming evident are in focus with the approaching full light of the Moon.  So are any areas where there is imbalance between self and other or giving and receiving.  There is wisdom is there to be gained here.

RESONANCE V. DISSONANCE:  It's quite easy to see where or with whom we are in resonance or like-minded.  The purpose behind this is to reinforce our understanding and appreciation of ourselves.  Under this energetic, we see where we compromise ourselves and why we the first place.  Today, the answer to these types of self-reflection are "the experiences of the inner child," so if you are trying to come to a higher understanding of something, the answer is sourced in childhood experiences.  The reason for this is...

MARS OPPOSES CHIRON:  Mars is located at the degree of "two girls playing with a Ouija board" and Chiron is located at "in a huge tent, a famous revivalist conducts his meeting with a spectacular performance."  The activation of both energies at once gives potential to be played, rooked, fooled, robbed, deluded, or overpowered.  Mars is aggressive energy and Chiron works first by wounding.  This brings the potential for deep pain to be inflicted or deep pain from the past to be re-experienced. 

The symbols imply that a message or teaching comes from the experiences, most likely showing us how we rely on something outside of ourselves too much or how we have given over our power to something or someone else.  Both symbols involve seeking something - an answer, a revelation, a fulfillment - from outside ourselves.  (Note: Potential for attack on Christians is higher under this dynamic, as Chiron is heavily associated with the Christ energy.) 

Mars will make the exact opposition with Chiron at 4:36 am ET/8:36 am UT tomorrow, Friday, October 23, but is strongly in effect until that time.

Be aware of the octaves of Mars and Chiron.  Mars Highest: action, energizing, initiating, and impulsing.  Mars Lowest: overblown egos, selfishness, violence, and impulsivity.  Chiron Highest: service to others, healing, teaching, innovation, and missions.  Chiron Lowest:  self-sacrifice, suicide, hurting or wounding others, abuse of alcohol, and fighting.

SUN:  The Sun disseminates the energy of "three mounds of knowledge on a philosopher's head."  This gives us all we need to figure things out today.  Three pieces of knowledge or information may come your way.

As the Great Moon Mirror grows, so do we. But today, the inner child seeks to grow.  It wants to grow up and be free.  What part of you needs to do this today?
