Crescent Moon Phase: challenge, perseverance

Moon in Leo

Goddess of Wisdom: All

God of Will: All

Skill: feet on the ground, eyes on a magic carpet ride

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "a mature woman reawakened to romance"

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

One of the most challenging skills to master is to simultaneously maintain focus in the present moment (and the joy that it brings) while also seeing ahead when opportunities to be able to do so are presented.

Panoramic views of the future are visible to us this weekend.  Uranus spends the last two days at the degree of the Sabian symbol "a magic carpet ride of Oriental imagery."  The magic carpet is a vehicle to gain a higher view, a wider perspective.  Situations and conditions that happen this weekend foreshadow the future.  They will come back around in the future. 

The skill of letting our eyes and mind take off on "magic carpet rides" while keeping our feet "grounded" and keeping things real is our challenge this weekend.  Challenge is the nature of the Crescent Moon phase, and we are in double-Crescent energy right now.  When wise owls hear and feel "challenge," we "kick in" the word "perseverance."  We know that we are co-creating with Spirit, more directly than we have ever experienced.  Our aim is true, and we persevere.

The energetics this weekend are all about movement and restriction of movement.  This is reflected in the macro level of the world and the micro level of our lives.  Restriction of movement is symbolic of restriction of spirit.  Restriction of movement is accomplished through control and fear.  It's an attempt to stop progress and forward movement.  It's an attempt to take us out of natural alignment with the value and love of life.

An old energetic imprint of fear, control, and restriction (especially as it relates to freedom  of mobility) is trying to be "revived" inside of us and inside of the world.   This astrological dynamic is in fullest force on Monday.  But there is a higher dynamic that is stronger and naturally over-riding.  Because of this, efforts at control will wilt.  Efforts at freedom will bloom.  It may not look like it, but that ultimate outcome.

There's a "soundtrack" or "exit music" as we complete our "magic carpet rides" this weekend.   It's the "music of the spheres" of the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Earth, Mars, the Black Moon, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Pluto, AND Eris!  That's a big orchestra!  A lot is happening right now.  Massive shifting in people (relationships), places, and things is occurring.  At times, this sends things into temporary disequilibrium.  This is why wise owls keep our feet on the ground while enjoying the magic carpet ride of the eyes and mind. 

We keep it real.  We keep it with love.  See you Monday.
