Full Moon Phase:  clarity, revelations

Moon in Pisces

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

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

Skill: release and realign

True Alignments:  making contact, information exchange, adventurous, greater and better methods, gathering, quests, preservation, gaining, multitude of options and possibilities, the essence of things, empowered, breathing more freely, smooth

Catalysts for Change:  blind spots, false flags, sacrifice, ritualistic acts of darkness, giving away one's power, enmeshed in the material world and/or in base instincts to the detriment of one's spirit, denial, panicky, dogma, trust issues, frozen in time and unable to move, clouded judgment, pushing buttons

Get ready to become a Mental Giant today.

Today's energetics seek to teach us and heal us of thoughts, beliefs, perceptions, and feelings that hold us back.

The primary targets for shifts in understanding relate to perceived losses, broken hopes and dreams, and things that have "failed."

With the release of these restrictions of the mind, we are free to grow.  "Soar" would be a better word because the sheer power of the potential to shift our understanding takes us far above the way things have been, far above the way we have felt.

This is a mighty statement, with a lot to live up to, but the energetics deliver with Mercury making opposition with Chiron today.  Mercury rules our thoughts, thought processes, communication, and information analysis.  Mercury is discharging the energetic of "a flag at half-mast in front of a public building."  Our thoughts naturally turn to grief and loss. 

Chiron rules the hero's journey, teachers of teachers and healers of healers, the quest for knowledge, mission, service to the fellowship of humanity, self-sabotage, learning, and recovering (amongst a plethora of other things -- the mythological Chiron was something of a "Renaissance Man," so the list goes on and on).  Chiron is discharging the energetic frequency of "the purging of the priesthood."  We are naturally taught a new (higher, more advanced) perspective and from it we are healed.  The past is purged.  Chiron also rules cutting (surgically precise, in fact), so the "purge" or split from the past is more like a clean cut.

This is a great blessing.

Freedom from tyranny over the mind is exactly what the fellowship of humanity needs more of at this moment.

As the release occurs today, questions arise.  What was actually "lost?"  Was it what we thought it was?  Was it truly a loss?  Could there ever be a loss of the heart of it?

The Mercury-Chiron dynamic sets up just as the Black Moon moves to 11 Scorpio and the Sabian symbol of "a drowning man is being rescued."  Rescues from the Waters of Scorpio are welcome.  This will be in effect until August 28.

With this today, alternatives are shown.  As the old thoughts and beliefs fall away, new ones are revealed.  The mental and emotional energy trapped within what limits us is freed for other pursuits.  This comes about from the Earth discharging the energetic of "a tree felled and sawed to ensure a supply of wood for the winter."  The new alternative are more sustainable and benefit us more.  Old uses and functions are transformed into new ones.

Our minds are already hyper-engaged in thought with the Mercury-Chiron opposition, and there is added chatter with the Sun disseminating "many little birds on the limb of a large tree."  We may feel "scattered about," but there is plenty of room because the symbol tells us the tree is large.  Going out on a limb is quite natural today.  This is good because it enables us to go far into the unknown (or into the recesses of our minds) to get what we need.  It enables us to see the entire "field" of the past, how it has affected us, and how we would rather things be now.  WE get to choose!

Note that the symbols for the Sun and Earth both involve trees.  Trees are the "neural network" of Gaia Sophia.  They link heaven and earth.  Let's feed a tree a happy thought today.

Finally, pieces of information that are needed to help us shift our perspective may very well come from an outside source.  Venus is discharging the energetic of "two girls playing with a Ouija board."  (I caution against Ouija boards.)  Inner knowledge does not occur in a vacuum.  We are social beings who deeply interact with our environment, which includes the minds of others.  We make our own assessments, but we play on the playground of the mind of Gaia Sophia with the rest of the class.  Key information and messages can come from unexpected sources.

So are you ready to grow today?  Are you ready to engage your Mental Giant?  The only thing we have to lose is what holds us back.

Happy Friday/Mental Giant Day, wise owls!
