Full Moons can be times of tremendous personal affront, intensely self-effacing times where stark realisations – possibly endings, can occur due to events in our personal lives reaching culminating points in the cycle that they affect.
This airy Libra Moon, conjunct Jupiter brings a wealth and abundance of feelings to the table. Since Libra (an intellectual sign) is primarily interested in making judgments that ideally wish best to restore balance and harmony, the trend here may tend towards emotional excesses. Doors may open to accommodate all emotions, share feelings and opinions on how best to find peaceable and harmonious solutions that benefit both sides. Jupiter’s influence on the Moon inflates or amplifies the emotional need to connect to our intuitive, spiritual self. However, an over-abundance of feelings and sensations here could be overwhelming as the myriad of emotional impressions can and will make it impossible to decide which way to go. Choice is difficult where indecisive feelings are aplenty.
The fiery Aries Sun’s opposition to the Libra Moon significantly highlights the contrast between the conscious, directly urgent impatient and bold call to action. Against the uncertain, unconscious emotional reaction, there is usually an instinctive pull for politically-correct behaviour which the Aries Sun finds difficult to muster and accord with.
Aries sees Libra’s social propriety more as indecisiveness and reticence to act – something which is cursed with a crippling sense of indolence, practical ineffectiveness or a ‘civil’ inertia. There is a pressing urge now to overcome this indecisiveness by arriving at a much more focused agenda, one that sticks to what is most important when we are trying to getting our point across, and to say what is on our mind without fear. With Uranus conjunct the Sun, the situation will either suddenly work out or leave us shocked and bewildered by just how many wild things are happening at once. An explosive need to express ourselves in free, uninhibited ways may see some pretty grandiose and excessive behaviour, and the T-square effect from Pluto could see things getting extreme and even out of control.
The Jupiter/Uranus midpoint (- 0°30′):
Let’s be real here. Jupiter has been opposing Uranus since the start of this year, and though the opposition appears to have eased, this Full Moon seem to intercept its midpoint almost precisely. This lunation then only personalises the effects of this aspect, which is namely all about being excessively rebellious or argumentative, sometimes just for the sake of being opposed to something. Such is the contrary nature of this energy, that it makes situations in our relationships wilfully difficult, even when there is no reason, blowing things completely out of proportion just to have a tiff about breaking away or being free.
If it’s a case of war and peace, the foreboding saga that plays out among us may be inspired by trans-generational elements – collective influences acting upon us in ways that draw their behaviour from our personal history and roots. These are deeply ingrained psychological idiosyncrasies, cultural engrams that we have inherited from our elders, our dead ancestors and past tribal agreements. They seem to possess us now, and play out in ways that not only affect our present relationships, but also influence matters that affect our children and those children yet to come.
The Uranus/Pluto midpoint (+0°16′):
Even tighter in this lunation is the all-critical activation of the separating square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. These two have been locking horns now for the past five years, exposing our psyches to some serious agitation, playing out as internal consciousness shifts and externally shocking and revolutionary-type activities. The ongoing struggle between the forces of autonomous, on-demand-style independence versus corporate, governmental, patriarchal control has taken place on every level – from the global, social, personal, even down to the most minuscule, cellular/atomic level.
Whether it’s race, creed or gender, religious, political, socio-economic or sexual – the neural pathway revolution has not only begun, since 2011 it has been truly on a phenomenal roll. In the conflicting challenges between the self against his culture, we have come to experience arguably the greatest collective shift in human consciousness since the beginning of time itself.
This Full Moon, being a time of enhanced awareness, reflection and realisation clearly highlights this extreme desire for freedom and for change. A complete and potentially drastic uprising is happening on the most personal level, where burning the bridges to our past, our history and culture and inevitable costs to achieving true freedom. Drastic situations arise that allow us to unleash much pent-up energy inside us – often it is the rage of enslavement that has been cooped up inside us for centuries. The development and evolution of our own, personally unique gifts, talents, and abilities must be expressed.
However, if our reaction simply becomes rebellion for its own sake, the results can be quite destructive. We must make it a point that we are now not only aware of what’s going on, but it is also time for everyone on earth to actually do something about it.
Full Moon Message:
The opportunity to choose how you experience this world for yourself has now arrived. This is now a time to act. It is no longer a time of anticipation, of worry or fear…
Whatever you choose to focus on, whatever you choose to observe right now, will very much depend upon the filters or lenses that you employ to view the world around you. Are these helping you to gain a holistic glimpse or are these blindsiding you to all the available opportunities to make a balanced, liberating decision on how to act?
Now, more than ever, the things that you place your intention upon – whatever you think, value or observe, is exactly what is going to manifest for you.
Be mindful now of how you choose to see your world – pay special attention to the value judgements that you impose onto the dualities and polarities (eg. good vs evil, etc.) – the lenses that you continue to filter your world through.
These are end times.
A NEW WORLD is emerging.
How will you choose to see it?
The world, as we are experiencing it, has clearly shifted into two distinct levels of consciousness. One level of consciousness is grasping doggedly to control us through domination, using the old dominion terror and fear. Another level holds the belief that there is a higher, more respectful, most compassionate and co-operative state of being – one that is more inclusive and veers away from the divisive, fear-based tactics of the first.
These two levels of human consciousness create a schism in the matrix; a kind of bi-lateral experience, one which may possibly fuse together into an eventual higher state of understanding, or it may split in two, allowing those stuck in the lower-dimensional world of judgement and control to literally tear each other apart through conflict and war. Nobody can stop this if this is how it has to be, but those who have already chosen to act from the higher dominion of compassion and kindness will, through their dignity and humility, experience a new joy and happiness – a kind of heaven on earth.
Although the times ahead look set to be filled with anguish, pain and challenges for many, you are now blessed with the power to make the kinds of choices that, according to your own level of consciousness and understanding, allow you to take the higher road of manifesting a much more cohesive, determined course of embodied enlightenment. You do not have to be a Buddha or a Jesus to experience this today. This lighter consciousness is now available to all of us. To release the karmic pain imposed only by our culture (and its accompanying baggage), we will either fight desperately to hang on to those things that no longer serve us, because we have come to depend on these so much that we do not know any other way, or we will simply choose to let go and to move with the light.
Come now, release the baggage and feel free to walk the road ahead, again…
and enjoy this glorious Full Moon.
