Full Moon Phase: realization, illumination

Moon in Virgo

Wisdom Goddess: Bhairavi (Goddess of the Heart)

Skill: be receptive to messages and inspiration

Positive Imprints: openness, taking time for relaxation, creating something, curiosity, like attracting like, fresh approaches, seeing a bigger picture, blessings, peace, revelations

Catalysts for Change: attempting to take other's choice or control, disdain, contempt, disparaging others, pushing too hard and working too hard, getting lost in negativity, delusions, shooting the messenger

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "a crowded public marketplace" (human interchange and exchange, displays and expressions of self)

We are wise to always be open to receiving messages and inspiration, but today's energetics bring them via special delivery.

These messages and inspiration have various missions:

  • to fortify or strengthen our inner knowing
  • to stimulate creativity, ideas, and solutions
  • to tighten our alignment with our heart's desires and course in life
  • to break through illusions we have about ourselves (particularly our perceptions about where we think we have failed)
  • to open our eyes to the fact that things are changing for the better (and thus giving hope) and that there is unseen assistance
  • to teach us that the point of power is in the present moment and that there is no reason to fight against things or rush them.

Specifically today, if we can attach to the mindset of wonderment and fascination for the workings of nature and the universe, the messages and inspiration come more easily.  It's a child-like state of mind, and as we grow and become wiser, we see the value of it.  It connects us with joy and the fulfilment of the soul.  Ultimately it guides the actualization of our personal destinies.

The energetics of the day are quite dreamy, but it is a paradox because we slip into awareness where we are actually able to see things more clearly.  Much of the dynamic is courtesy of Venus at the degree of "fairies dancing in the setting sun."  As the Sun sets today, the Moon is Full, so a celebration of some sort seems to be in order at sunset.  Prayers of thanks are always good.

Be aware that along with this dreamy energy, our own and other's shadow sides may show out since the Moon is in Virgo, the sign where the Black Moon is currently transiting.  The Moon is in Virgo through tomorrow night around 8:00 pm ET/1:00 am UT.  During this time, the tendency is for people to project their own feelings onto others because we place on others that which we cannot face in ourselves.  Feelings of failure, inadequacy, mistrust, and vulnerability are triggered.  These are shadows; they are unreal.  These issues become blown out of proportion so that we will recognize and integrate the lesson.  If you experience this (by projecting or being projected upon), what can be learned here?  What needs to be seen?

Under today's energetic, the more we open up, the more we will receive.  Special deliveries await you.
