We remain in the last hours of the Full Moon phase until 6:55 pm ET/11:55 pm UT, so the intensity that accompanies Full Moon phases is in effect until that time. The confluence of energies gives the end of the Full Moon phase a rather dramatic emotional finish. No surprise, since this has been a Full Moon for the books.
Some days, like today, flood "the field" with emotions. Full Moon phases are inherently the most emotional time of the lunar cycle. The Moon is in the mutable (changeable, transitional, moveable) sign of Virgo and will aspect both Chiron and Jupiter today. It is indeed a day where we will learn something about ourselves, as the archetypes of Chiron and Jupiter are "teacher" energies. We are wise to remember that we are much more than our emotions, and that a balanced heart, mind, body, and soul is always best. Still, this energy will challenge that equilibrium, so perhaps it is best to follow along with it instead of getting pulled into a riptide.
11:04 am ET/4:04 pm UT: MOON OPPOSES CHIRON - The Moon at 19 Virgo and the Sabian symbol of " a swimming race" opposes Chiron at 19 Pisces and "a master instructing his disciple." This energetic involves working through our emotions, but brings elements of competition, comparisons, and reflections back to the past to judge. Old and new wounds are revealed in order to bring about a cleansing. Cleansing is the primary function of the mutable signs of Virgo and Pisces. We can easily unconsciously or semi-consciously engage in self-sabotage via negative coping skills that stem the tide, so to speak. Or we can just skip this and jump ahead to...
5:12 pm ET/10:12 pm UT: MOON CONJUNCTS JUPITER - The Moon will come to the same place in the sky as Jupiter at 23 Virgo and the Sabian symbol of "a lion-tamer rushes fearlessly into the circus arena." This energetic teaches us discipline and self-mastery. We see how we are in command of how we respond to any circuses that are happening around us. We see a clear path about how to tame the whirlwinds and use the energy to envision and create what we want to bring forward in the world, as our part in Second Renaissance. I always say it is time to keep one eye on the dissolving system and the other eye on creating the alternative (but soon to be mainstream) way - the way that is in alignment with truth, freedom, and love for life.
The location of Venus today sums it up well: "Indians, some rowing a canoe, others dancing a war dance in it." We can row through emotions (fears, limitations, self-blame, self-criticism) or we can go to war with them. The result will be the same: we learn something valuable or something is returned to life or restored.
Yesterday's theme of seeing new combinations or solutions remains in effect with Mars continuing to discharge "an inventor performs a laboratory experiment." Remember that this image is of an inventor - someone who creates something new, usually something that is helpful or innovative. Mars rules our energy" so there is ample fuel to carry our minds in any direction. Let's intend to have it carry us into happier, peaceful, more creative mindsets. Moving the body and movements of music are highly facilitative in this respect.
The Sun disseminates the energy of "beautifully gowned wax figures on display," which tells us to look deeper into things. Artful trickery can accompany this symbol, but so can recreations or re-interpretations of beauty. We need to watch out for the potential to want and try to make things perfect; that takes all of the fun out of it.
The Earth is located at "a communist activist spreading his revolutionary ideals." Let's watch today's dynamics in the world and see how this energetic is morphing.
As the Moon completes the Full phase this evening, we aim to for the finish. The energy of the Disseminating phase, the time to share, is ahead.
