Full Moon Phase: clarity, enlightenment

Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius 11:12 pm ET/3:12 am UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows; Bhairavi, Goddess Who Fortifies the Heart

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will and Desire): Kathe, God of the South

Skill: invoking or aligning with the feeling of (true) home

True Alignments: closing in on something or learning something, transcending the superficial/mundane/monotonous/unexceptional, adjustment and acclimation, achieving, fellowship and teams, end of a struggle, relaxation, childlike wonderment

Catalysts for Change:  evasive, avoidant, deceptive, escapism, putting up with something when one should instead move on, irresponsible and putting all of the responsibility on others, confusion, upsets, denial, political correctness run amok, gossip

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast space to the northeast" (facing forward, facing the past, facing the truth, facing the self, facing off)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the control paradigm, transcending difficulties; receptivity and openness to new experiences, finding true value, weaving a new story/narrative)

The Moon builds toward Full today, building the speed and intensity of things and building them to full light or visibility. 

This Full Moon phase occurs at the energetic of 28 Capricorn and the Sabian symbol description of "a large aviary."  What does this symbol say to you?  It is a good idea to give this some thought, as this frequency of energy will be with us the 3+ days of the phase.

Typically, the "large aviary" brings a certain amount of mental confusion, flitting to and fro, and making a lot of noise about really nothing at all.  "Mental chatter" can be hard to turn off with this, and it can also bring insomnia (especially when it is in effect during a Full Moon phase because it is naturally harder to sleep during Full Moons).  Agitation and frustration with others easily occurs, as we attempt to sort through everything that is "coming in."  Too much (superfluous) information can be overwhelming.  This energetic heavily activates the brain, so if you feel like smoke is coming from your head from the rate of processing all of the information, turn down the noise.  Turn off the source of overstimulation.  Turn away from deceptions of the heart and mind that are attempting to burn you out emotionally, mentally, and physically.  Don't engage the hype.

Definitively, a "large aviary" is also a home for birds, even owls.  It is "large," so there is room to move, spread your wings, or maybe even go "out through the in door" of the cage, if one finds oneself in this type of "aviary."

Other energetic themes in effect today include:

1 - FINDING ALTERNATIVES - The Sun is discharging "an Indian girl introduces her college boyfriend to the assembled tribe."  This can challenge us and offer strength during trying or challenging situations.  We tend to be more judgmental when this Sabian is present, but it does "bridge" people, places, and things.  Things come back together/reassemble or they are offer other direction.  The "same old same old" does not fare well when the Sun is at this location.  The proof is in the pudding.  Truth will always show through with this energetic.

Endings, changes, and adjustments may be the sources that prompt the need for finding alternatives.  Venus follows up what Mercury started yesterday at the degree of "early morning dew," an energetic that symbolizes the end of a dark night and the fertility of a new experience.

2 - INNER FORTITUDE AND RESOLVE - Mercury is located at the degree of "children on a swing in a huge oak tree."  The oak tree symbolizes strength and wisdom gained through experiences.  The image of the swing reinforces the "flitting to and fro" theme and can exacerbate mood swings.  Indecision and going back and forth with something (especially in our minds) comes with this.  However, the image reminds us that innocence and play balance, revitalize, and relieve.  Rocking in a rocking chair can simulate the experience, and is a good way to process and smooth out the sheer amount of light and information that is upon us.

In advance of the Full Moon at 6:57 pm ET/10:57 pm UT, the Moon will prepare the way by making aspects to other planets.  Here is the breakdown, but please keep in mind that energy moves in waves and the following dynamics are in effect for a few hours before and after the time of exact aspect, so these are "guidelines in the timelines":

1:06 pm ET/5:06 pm UT - MOON SQUARE URANUS - Potential for changes, surprises, shocks, and accidents increases.  The Moon will be located at 25 Capricorn ("a leader of men wrapped in an invisible mantle of power") and Uranus at 25 Aries ("a double promise reveals its inner and outer meanings").  Double trouble, double crossing, two timing, and two facing comes with these.  At the highest octave, deception is revealed, and strength to maintain integrity is given.  We will want to be extra vigilant during this time.  If a trauma event occurs (as they being inflicted in rapid-fire succession now), there is likely a second side to it and most likely a false flag. 

If driving during this timeframe, make sure you are focused and "in body," as the energetics cause a natural degree of dissociation or feeling of disconnect from our bodies or ourselves.  We want to make extra effort to pay attention.

2:08 pm ET/6:08 pm UT - MOON SEXTILE CHIRON - Diversifying, moving on, and applying energy in other ways in order to facilitate healing comes with this set.  Chiron is discharging the last vestiges of "the New Moon reveals it is time for people to go ahead with their different projects."  What was intended, happening, or wished for at the New Moon phase (July 4-7) comes to fruition or fullest potential or is revisited now at the Full Moon phase.  The Moon will be at 26 Capricorn ("fairies dancing in the mist of a waterfall"), bringing a tendency toward denial and escapism, which actually shows us what needs diversification, moving on, and application in new ways.

3:12 pm ET/7:12 pm UT - MOON SEXTILE MARS - While the Moon still has "fairies dancing in the mist of a waterfall," Mars has "Indians making camp in new territory."  Since it is Mars, the advance into new "spaces" may be aggressive.  People will be drawing and crossing lines all over the place.  "Divide and conquer" is in full effect.  Let us not be caught off guard or caught wallowing in emotions, as the Full Moon of the Cancer lunar cycle is wont to have us do.  Emotions always run higher during the Full Moon of the Cancer lunar cycle because Cancer is a water sign (emotions), and, well, the Moon rules the sign of Cancer.  Dancing in the mist is much better than being caught in the undertow.  "Contain and maintain" is the mantra, as we lean toward the "bearable lightness of being" that accompanies the energetic of "fairies dancing in the mist of a waterfall."  Mars wants us to move our bodies, so dancing and other forms of movement will be very effective to mitigate all of the mental chatter, emotional waves, and generalized confusion.  Let's move out of the fugue.

Like the Moon and the tides, parasitic activity in the body increases during Full Moons.  Since it is the Full Moon of the Cancer (water) cycle and we are made up mostly of water, parasites have a field day.  We are not powerless victims.  We are becoming empowered thrivers.  It is a process, however, and patience with ourselves and circumstances is needed.

I think that is enough for one day, how about you?  This report is certainly an example of this Full Moon's "large aviary" with a lot of chatter and mental activity.  Winnow through and find what works for you.  Find the one voice - the one that resides inside and speaks to you from "home."

Happy Full Moon!
