Full Moon Phase: clarity, insight

Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius 4:09 pm ET/8:09 pm UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Dissolves Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill:  simplify, resist the need to control or do things the hard way

True Alignments: justice, worthiness, imagination, elevated and elated, release, the unseen but evident, future action plans, seeing a bigger picture, the power to influence, unity, withstanding, inner self shining through or coming forward, explosions of ideas

Catalysts for Change:  pushing one's views and opinions onto others, misunderstandings, tantrums and fits, insincerity, manipulation (especially propaganda), far outside of reality, unloading on others, impatience, bombarded, "out of body" (make efforts to stay focused while driving, etc.), lost or in limbo

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (the inner self rising to write the Narrative of Humanity; stirring to action)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending worries; the unraveling of old control systems and programs)

Today, the magic carpet ride gives us an exceptionally vast view of the future.

The Sun comes to the degree of "a man on a magic carpet observes vast vistas below him," giving us double "magic carpet ride" imagery.

A few things we have learned so far about the Magic Carpet Ride of Solar-Lunar Year 2016 is that it is rather weird, goes in very unexpected places, and does not stop.  We see that we cannot judge outcomes too soon because the ride is still on.  It does not end until March 2017, when the new solar-lunar year begins.

But today's energies favor seeing much farther ahead and seeing a much wider swathe of the future and what we might expect.  Themes, circumstances, situations, feelings, ideas, etc. that are present or stand out or are pointed out to us today provide key "intelligence" or information or signs about the future and what will be happening "on the ground" or in our lives.

Other themes on the ride today include:

1- OTHERWORLDLINESS - Several planets are discharging energetic frequencies that can produce feelings of disconnection or feelings of being somewhat out of body.  Venus is discharging the Sabian symbol energetic code of "two fairies dancing on a moonlit night," and the Black Moon is discharging "a youth holding a lighted candle in a devotional ritual."  Lightness and reverence are found through SIMPLICITY.

We remain in the Solstice Full Moon phase energetic today and tomorrow.  Remember that this Full Moon phase occurred as a conjunction with the Galactic Center (our spiritual home in the galaxy, according to the ancient Gnostics), so all of the days of the phase flood us with guidance, information, insight, and care from On High.  It is certainly an "otherworldly" feeling to connect with the "all-wordly."

This energetic makes for heights of creativity.  It can also bring the desire to escape reality (but why not create a new reality instead of expending energy on running from an old one?).

2- PLANNING AHEAD - The "double wide view" of today's magic carpet ride will give indicators of the future, which means we can make plans accordingly.

3 - CARELESSNESS AND THINGS BREAKING OR ERUPTING - The Earth is located at "three stained glass windows in a Gothic church, one damaged by war."  Today Jupiter moves to the degree of "a volcanic eruption."  And we have Mercury at "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause," re-activating the overall theme for this solar-lunar month.  So, careless actions and words can cause a great deal of harm and a great deal of drama, and thought should be given in advance.  Cathartic release and change is the goal of these energetics.

4- THE POWER OF WORDS AND INTENTIONS - Speeches and conversations are very powerful and influential today.  Mars has reached the degree where it will station direct on June 29, so it is completing its mission while retrograding to re-work how we use our energy and resources in all ways.  The Sabian symbol for the energetic that Mars will spin until June 29 is 24 degrees of Scorpio: "crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one inspired man."  This energetic is very similar to this solar-lunar month's theme of "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause."  Inspiration and drama...makes for a lively magic carpet ride, yes?  What is worthy and just will prevail.

Overall, things are being "forced out" with Mighty Jupiter, Planet of Limitless Expansion, simmering the energetic of "a volcanic eruption."  Things that have been suppressed are coming out like white-hot lava.

The magic carpet ride may start getting even a little weirder when the Moon moves in to Aquarius later on.  Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, Planet of Changes, so our acrobatic skills of adapting to changing conditions will be helpful.

The wisdom offered today is to not to make things too hard -- to simplify.  Keep it to the simple, the basic, the joyful, the easy, the aligned.  We can do that.  We just have to remember that a higher power powers the ride, and give up the need to control it.
