Full Moon Phase: clarity, understanding, revelations

Moon in Capricorn

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East (the direction of beginnings; Ian is on duty until July 4)

Skill:  attend to wisdom (pay attention, connect with nature, recognize patterns)

True Alignments:  enlarged or changed perspective, observation, motivation, reforming, breaking free of a burden or challenge, attraction, reflecting, reunions, ideals, memories, beauty of form, bridging

Catalysts for Change: not wanting to get involved, self-aggrandizement, harsh self criticism, denial, argumentative, close-minded, going too fast, propaganda, lacking direction, high drama, going along with what others want for you instead of what you want for you

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "the symbolic battle between swords and torches" (becoming enlightened to something, the might of light)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending old/unnatural beliefs and systems)

Today, the Earth (Gaia Sophia) discharges the energetic frequency encoded in the Sabian symbol for 5 Sagittarius: "an old owl up in a tree."  This is the "founding energetic" of the Oracle Report, and one of the reasons I call readers the "parliament of wise owls."  A group of owls is called a parliament.  Owls see what others miss.

When the energetic of "an old owl up in a tree" is in effect, wisdom is certainly gained.  However, there is another aspect to owl energy that is not discussed as much as the "wisdom" theme: strength. 

It takes strength to gain wisdom.  We forget this.  Strength is needed to truly (accurately, objectively) reflect and contemplate.  Reflection upon what we experience is how we gain wisdom.  Wisdom is much more than knowledge.  Wisdom requires a certain strength of Will.

Strength of will is always just as much in effect as wisdom when the Sabian symbol of the "owl owl up in a tree" is activated.

Strength of will to stay (or get) on track, to hold one's own mind, to stick to one's convictions, to not be easily swayed, and to prompt a beneficial change is our blessing today.

It is important to understand that we remain in the Full Moon phase of the cycle.  The characteristics of a Full Moon last longer than the day that the Moon is Full.  Most people do not understand this because the wisdom has been suppressed (almost to the degree of eradication, but behold the return of wisdom).

As we recall, Mars was conjunct the Moon when it became Full.  Mars is fire energy.  It is tempestuous, impulsive, and oftentimes aggressive.  Mars activates anger as well as depression (they are polarities).  Full Moons bring everything to heightened (fullest) expression.  Full Moon Fever naturally has people saying and doing things that are out of the ordinary (extreme, cathartic), but with Mars right there with it takes it to another level.

One manifestation of this is an increase in accidents and violence.  Another manifestation would be the concentrated geophysical activity we are seeing. 

The pressure can be intense.

Today, as the Full Moon phase continues, Mars and Venus will come to exact opposite places in the sky.  In astrology, this is called an opposition.  The planets come to exactly 180 degrees apart.

In the natural cycle of time, an astrological opposition is called a Full phase.  The two planets engage in their own Full Moon together.

So we have Venus and Mars making opposition (Full phase) during the Full Moon phase.  This means double the trouble and double the fun.

Combinations of Venus and Mars focus on relationships and the masculine and feminine principles.

At the time of the opposition, Mars is located at the degree of "retired army veterans gather to reawaken old memories."  This energetic brings like-minded people (people who are in resonance) together.  It can also tend to hold on to the past.  The highest octave is reflecting on the past in order to understand something that is going on now.

At the time of the opposition, Venus is located at the degree of "a glass-bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders."  This energetic brings the ability to see beyond or see through what is normally hidden or inside boundaries.  It can also tend to put up barriers.  The highest octave is recognizing that there are wonders that we never see.  Under the surface, life is teeming.  Beyond the matrix, wonders never cease.

With all of this, the Sun is discharging the energetic of "a radical magazine, asking for action, displays a sensational front page."  What is sensational today?  Will our perspective change?  What is induced within relationships?

This is a long explanation of the energetics.  It probably required some strength of will to plough through it.  But that is what wise owls do.  We persevere.  We find our Inner Thelete, our Will and Desire (to Know).  We know that the tendency today is for us to see things either more fully or from a different perspective.  We understand that a spark is trying to galvanize something for us.  We realize that people are being brought together.  We see the past come to light.

We attend to Wisdom.
