Gibbous Moon Phase: trust, magic

Moon in Aquarius

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bhairavi, Goddess Who Fortifies the Heart

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

Skill:  seize the day

True Alignments:  faith, checking things out/taking stock, blessings, truth, skillful maneuvers, spiritual inspiration, checking or interrupting emotions that start to run wild, performances, courage, recognition of multiple talents, release from pressure or obsession or darkness, attentive

Catalysts for Change:  leaping without looking/diving into something without thought of ramifications, selfish, faking, highly critical of self and others, control issues, unproductive mental "loops," testing others, ties that tightly bind, feelings of unworthiness, arrogance, lack of faith

As we approach the Full Moon phase (the Full Moon occurs Thursday at 5:27 am ET/9:27 am UT), the starry skies charge up the following energetics:

1- SIGNS OF ASSURANCE - The Sun is discharging the energetic of "after a heavy storm, a rainbow."  Things happen and information is delivered to us to show us a different perspective, one that reassures us in some way.  "Spectrums" of things show out.  We see a broader picture, which changes our perceptions, beliefs, and feelings.  Things that have stressed, worried, or preoccupied us are released, leaving us to have a more colorful experience of life.

2- SOLVING AND FIGURING OUT - The Earth is located at the degree of "a mechanic testing a car's battery with a hydrometer."  As "heavy storms" of the psyche fade out into signs of assurance, the information, circumstances, and events that we encounter today help us put things together or finally solve them.  We not only see what is out of balance (continuing a theme that began developing yesterday), but we also see how to fix it.  We can "gauge" things better.  A car's battery powers its systems.  Your own "battery" may need adjusting.

3- DIRECTING THE FLOW OF ENERGY/CHOOSING YOUR OWN NARRATIVE - Mercury discharges the powerful energetic of "a lion-tamer rushes fearlessly into the circus arena."  This is about harnessing our power (our "battery") and directing things the way WE want them to go.  Programs of mind control (perceived failure/loss/weakness, hopelessness, guilt, and self criticism) that may be running rampant and roughshod over you can be dashed with one very clear understanding today.  We can break out of a control matrix that has immobilized us.  A shift in mindset from the stance of demanding to the stance of commanding begins the process.  This is wild energy that can "rush" to wild places, but it can bringer order and stability to (tame) the wildest of things.

4- TAKING CARE - In the midst of the wildness, Venus discharges the energetic of "a fine lace ornamental handkerchief."  This energy brings a theme of delicacy to the day. Can we rush fearlessly yet take care?  Yes, we can.  The heart of this Sabian symbol speaks to providing security or joy.  It is about showing that one cares.  These are the foundations for Renaissance.  How can you take better care today?  It is often best to start at home, with ourselves.

Today we follow the Sun and leave heavy storms behind as a rainbow makes way.  Fearlessly, let's carpe diem!
