The Sun released an M6.5-class solar flare with coronal mass ejection yesterday at 2:23 pm ET/6:23 pm UT. It is Earth-directed. The Moon was located at 13 Virgo, activating the energy of "a powerful statesman overcomes a state of political hysteria." The Moon was also making a trine to Pluto at that time, adding massive energy of deep transformation.
The symbol of "a powerful statesman overcomes a state of political hysteria" is the energy to turn things around and bring them into equilibrium. It rectifies and stabilizes. The coronal mass ejection is one more step of cosmic intervention to restore and realign with the value of life itself and the rich experiences it brings.
Rich experiences and a certain amount of "inner revival" are present with the Earth located at the degree of "the human soul, in its eagerness for new experience, seeks embodiment." This energy unbinds us from what we've been previously bound. A new arena of inner experience opens that eventually leads to some sort of expansion/manifestation in the outer world.
In a resonant way, Mercury will once again begin to disseminate the energy of "newly opened lands offer the pioneer new opportunities for experience." What do you think?
New experiences result from changes, and thus imply that we move beyond the fear of the unknown. Pioneers understand this very well. They understand that within the unknown, the potential for opportunity could be beyond our wildest imagination. In this way, pioneers are adventurers.
Today is the last day of the Crescent Moon phase, the time of the lunar cycle that challenges us in myriad ways. It's been an intense four days. The Moon and the Black Moon will meet in the sky at 11:35 am ET/3:35 pm UT today. Thoughts and feelings about perceived personal failings may try to creep in. This just helps us see something important about ourselves. The Moon will move out of Virgo and out the Crescent phase overnight. Relief comes as the Sun rises tomorrow.
Until then, we adventure on...
