Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, realign

Moon in Aries

Goddess of Wisdom: Bagalamukhi (Goddess Who Solves)

God of Will:  Ian (God of The East)

Skill: open up to shifting

True Alignments: allegiance, revealing true self, allure, the interests of disclosure, seeing more of the truth (especially of oneself), nurturance of what we love and value, steadiness, shedding restraints and restrictions, new ideas

Catalysts for Change:  impulsivity, careless with words, throwing tantrums, acting out, projecting shadow sides, rushing forward, doubting self-worth, glossing over key pieces, shame, restraining and restricting

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "winter frost in the woods"

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

The Third Quarter Moon phase begins today, but the real news is that this is technically the last few days of two month's worth of challenging energy.  We've persevered through obstacles (fears, perceived failures, rejections, old beliefs) to maintain sight of our highest ideals and our hopes, wishes, and dreams.  Our mission over the past two lunar months has been to not give up on the true values of life.  The universe asked if we value something enough to dedicate ourselves to the challenge.

Beginning today and continuing over the next few days (the Third Quarter Moon phase), energy for turning points enters the field.  Things straighten up, rectify, align, join together, magnetize, and reposition.  The strongest effects of this occur today as the Moon moves into conjunction with Uranus at the Eris Point with exact conjunction around 11:00 pm ET/3:00 am UT.

Mercury will enter Cancer around 3:00 pm ET/7:00 pm UT, joining the Sun and Mars in Cancer.  Cancer energy increases our sensitivity to all things, but especially our emotional sensitivity.  The main story with Mercury entering Cancer is the amplification of "cardinal" or turning point energies because Mercury is joining forces with the Sun, Mars, Uranus, Pluto, and today the Moon in cardinal signs to realign people, places, and things in major ways.

Envision a cross with the cardinal directions of East, South, West, and North.  Planets are peppered at three of the points, moving things toward change and transformation.

But what about the fourth direction?  What's missing? 

The fourth direction is filled when the Black Moon takes position on August 25, 2015, completing the cross and delivering renaissance as it transits Libra through May of 2016.

The events of today foreshadow that time period, so wise owls are paying close attention.  Clues about what is missing in our lives also comes along with this today.

Please join me in sending a wave of love to all the wise owls in the UK for ongoing, herculean skills of holding the line.  We salute you!
