Blood Moon Eclipse July 2018

blood moon

This full lunar eclipse is powerful. You will have a tough time ignoring the effects brought on by this one. You probably started feeling it months ago and on July 27, the effects reach a peak of impact. This sets up a cascade of cause-and-effect that influences your life for the next six months. Some of these effects will make lasting changes in how you live, your health, mental processes, your personal environment, and more, depending on where the components of the eclipse fall in your personal chart. Aquarians, Leos, Virgos, and Taureans will feel the impact more powerfully than the other signs, but no one will escape some of the effects of this Eclipse.

A lunar eclipse occurs during the full moon. This time the Moon is in Aquarius, therefore, opposite the Sun in Leo. I know, astrologers, “duh…” I added that in case some non-astrologers are reading this.

So, the Moon’s North Node (NN) is also in Leo. In a few months, though the NN will move into Cancer, ending the activation of this eclipse. The South Node (SN) is always opposite the NN, so it’s in Aquarius. Since the Moon is full, it conjuncts its own SN.

Who else was invited to the party? Retrograde Mars in Aquarius. (insert horror film scream here). Aquarius is a fixed sign. Mars doesn’t like being in fixed signs. Mars is the yard dog chained to a tree. He wants to bust out, run wild, chase a cat up a tree. But, no. He’s tethered to a tree “fixed,” unbending, to the ground.

Retrograde means the cat in our scenario above keeps coming just close enough to taunt before dashing away again and the dog leaps forward only to be jerked back when he reaches the end of his tether.

Phew! During this eclipse influence you might feel held back, stalled, in a loop. The same “Sh**” keeps happening, over and over and over. Or similar issues come up in clumps.

For example, I’m an Aquarian. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus (another guest at this party). Uranus rules electronics and electricity. I had my computer mouse die, batteries that didn’t work, a Bluetooth keyboard bit the dust, my toaster went wonkie, and I got stuck in several password loops from hell, all in the same day.

In a more general sense, the Moon/SN/Mars/Aquarius combo means it’s time to take stock of your life and rearrange, rebuild, reorganize. New beginnings feel comforting and familiar. Karma loops come to consciousness to be cleared away.

The SN is about the past, karma, what we brought with us from our past lives and/or our ancestors’ stubborn DNA. The NN is about what we are adding to the mix this time around.

An example is the Temple of Karnak, in Egypt. It is HUGE. But, it started off pretty simple. For centuries, each new Pharaoh had their builders add onto the old complex, taking inspiration from the old, learning from the past builders and architects to improve, enhance, and expand. Perhaps, some of the builders saw that a past addition no longer served the intended purpose or was faulty. It could be remodeled or torn down to make way for the new.

Globally, this affects both the governing and the governed. The world seems to be falling into insanity as the ruling class tries hold onto “business as usual” and the governed try to bring in a new paradigm. This was first felt with the Arab spring in 2010. The people in the Middle East began defying decades (or centuries) of oppression and government corruption. Some of their efforts failed, others succeeded, at least in part. Even the (in my opinion, misguided) enthusiasm to elect Donald Trump as a decidedly unorthodox President of the United States is an example of the pressure-cooker energy pushing for change that involves Uranus, Aquarius, Mars, and others.

It is not a matter of will we, but when and how will we change the world to topple corruption and oppression. The question is “How can we move forward with a new paradigm in the least destructive way?” This will play out on the global and personal stage.

The astrology of change is a complex thing. Depending on a bazillion factors, change will either be successful in some places or unsuccessful in someplaces. Across the globe, with each person, change will come according to how these influences interact with personal and mundane charts.

In addition, our personal lives create the global events. WE are the world. WE need to restructure not only our external environment but our internal one as well.

Numerology in Astrology

Although, in my ignorance, I don’t find numerology to have the nuance and depth of astrology, it is nevertheless useful to include it to further understand the importance of this eclipse.

This eclipse will occur in 4 Aquarius 44 — 444. Even if you don’t know numerology that’s gotta sound ominous. Okay, so, in numerology, we add each digit of a multiple-digit number to each other to get the final energy signature: 4+4+4=12. Further reduce the numbers. 1 + 2= 3.

Three is the number of creation. Twelve is a higher octave of Three, so it is 3 with more “oomph.” InNumerology and the Divine Triangle, Faith Javane and Dusty Bunker say that 12 calls on us to “stop, look, and listen…pause in our life…spend time thinking, learning to see things as they really are.” 12 is great for meditation, personal change through energy work and philosophy, and/or therapy. It is time to let go of worry and concern about daily lives and go inward to do maintenance on our inner emotional map. Faith and Dusty warn us not to become to absorbed in our mundane world right now or difficulties with friendships and our security could result. Go with the flow and it will all be okay.

Tarot, Numerology and Astrology go together like butter and jam on toast. The Hanged Man is the card for 12. Turning our world upside down to have a new vision and a better future.

Meanwhile, back at Astrology Ranch

So, the NN is in Leo. Leo rules the natural 5th house of creativity, expression, and venturing out of our comfort zone to gamble on something new. Wow! Freaky good stuff. The Sun is the ruler of Leo. He is where we shine the most. The Sun in Leo is about honestly expressing our true and honest self, living our Truth, and creating our best and highest good. But, if you ask yourself “Who am I?” Do you really know? Are you afraid to know? Are you tied up in the Maya of living someone else’s experience of you? Have the rules of society convinced you that they are the only way to live?

Hah! This eclipse is thumping you on the head and saying “HELLO! WAKE UP!” Move out of the maze. You’ve walked the Labyrinth and arrived at the center. Become the best you possible, regardless of what others may believe.

“But,” you-the-astrologer asks, “What about the retrograde Mars near the South Node?” Mars is often without mercy. He pulls you back into the riptide of past life karma, false beliefs about yourself, other people’s agenda’s for your life and your value.

The NN is throwing you a life line. You catch it, but it slips through your fingers and you’re are back in the sea of the past, swimming in the murky soup of Maya (spiritual delusion). Then the lifeline is thrown again, and you catch it but can’t hang on. This happens again and again. (Remember the taunting cat story above?) You feel like you’re in the film, Ground Hog Dayuntil you wake up and realize that you’ve been in a loop and now it’s time to wake up and leave and grab the lifeline. Wrap it around your body and be pulled out of the soup into clarity to finally lead what Joseph Campbell called, “an authentic life.”

Mercury in Reverse

On July 26, Mercury went retrograde, too. It’s time to go back and redo your life. To wake up and realize you’ve been in the trap of false identity. For example, say you want to be an artist. Your family thinks that’s a waste of time and convinces you to follow family tradition and become an accountant. Even though you hate it, you think, “It’s family. Family is important. Family knows best. I don’t want to disappoint them. What if they don’t love me anymore because I’m an artist.” You cave to their decision of what is “best” for you.

This eclipse is there to jerk you around so that you get out then pulled back in—multiple times until you realize the artificial life you have been living and do something to get out. The universe knows that for most people, one jerk isn’t strong enough to make us wake up and smell the coffee. We need more than one push-pull to get our attention.

This might all feel like you are on a carousel on steroids. These loops happen fast and each one is a little different.

More Planets Come to the Party

The planet Uranus rules Aquarius. Uranus is “Surprise!” It is the Fool Tarot card.You expect one thing and voila something else happens. You expect to be free of the loop and unexpectedly, you are pulled back in. You expect to settle in the old paradigm, and SURPRISE! you’re enticed out again. Boom! To continue our story of a wannabe artist, you set up your art studio and your family bribes you to give it up and go back to your old life. Or something else happens to pull you back in. It reminds me of the movie Kinky Boots.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinky_Boots_(film. Watch it. You’ll understand this push-pull of future/past, norm/new. This loop can be scary and fraught with potholes. You might resist as the universe sends you a strange messenger to pull you out of yourself, but eventually it is best to accept the help.

Uranus is in its power in Aquarius. But it isn’t IN Aquarius right now, it’s in stubborn Taurus and coming into a trine with retrograde Saturn of stability, rules, systems. Uranus doesn’t like rules.

Venus in earthy Virgo joins the party and will stay through October. What does all this mean? Very powerful Ju-Ju.

The eclipses are handing us answers on a platter. Aquarius = Air. Taurus = Earth. Leo = Fire. This is our lifeline. This is the banquet table at the party. We have AIR = intellect, the suit of Swords in Tarot. Air helps us figure out a way to be secure (EARTH) in our new paradigm. Air fans the fire to burn away Maya and Karma so we can live secure in True self.

There is also a T-square with Moon, Mars, and Uranus that brings frustrations, feeling held back, impatience. This Eclipse T-square is saying “hold your horses. Wait until the right time to go full bore into change.”

It will all happen as it should, just ride the carousel until it comes to a natural stop so you can get out of the soup. You will know when it is the right time.

There is so much more that could be said about this eclipse, it could fill a book. Do your own research. Look at how the eclipse is affecting your personal chart. It could be eye-opening.

A RAY OF HOPE for the PONY UNDER THE PILE OF DOO-DOO

The World in Chaos, heading for Healing

Image result for ASTROLOGY URANUS CHAOS

Pluto is still in Capricorn (isn’t it there for fricken’ EVER). It started in 2008 and will be there until 2024. Capricorns and Scorpios are feeling the brunt of this more than ever because of its long-term aspect to Uranus/Eris. This brings revolutions in government and corporations. The squares here bring more intensity to what his already happening in the world.

During this time, the world will be in transformation—BIG TIME. The rampant greed-infused energy that soaks governments, organizations, institutions, and business today are in for a wake-up call.

If the astrology holds true, people WILL wake up and make changes for the better. Old systems will crumble and a new-and better world will begin to rise from the ashes. The influence was already felt in the decidedly odd and unexpected election of Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States. Whether you are for or against this, it is a result of people looking for change. With these planetary energies of Pluto, Uranus, Saturn, and Capricorn driving the bus, the way the world is run could come to a full and complete stop before the sun can arise anew to rebirth, rebuild, and restructure.

Uranus moving from Aries to Taurus brings revolutions in matters of money and agriculture. And just in time, too. Foods that we commonly consider essential are in danger. Vanilla bean orchids in collapse, global warming devastating cacao plants, Arabica coffee plants suffering to a point of crisis. Farming practices coming to realize that their way of feeding the world is not sustainable. All of this coming as a “surprise” by those who perpetuate the old ways.

Neptune in Pisces brings water shortages and a need for new ways to water crops and keep drinking water safe and flowing.

Spiritually, Neptune brings a crisis of soul for many who have navigated their lives without compassion.

In 2020, just around the corner, YAY!, the new cycle begins with Saturn and Pluto conjuncting in Capricorn. This begins a whopping 30-year cycle of rebuilding governments, business and anything with power and authority.

The great benefic, Jupiter will also be invited to the party for most of the year 2020 bring expansion, and a sense of joy to this process. Saturn and Pluto are dead serious, and Jupiter says, “Lighten up. Things are going to be Great!”

Attitude aside, these planets are on a mission to restructure the way the world is run in a better way. What this means, is still unknown in its details. Does it mean that Wall Street and banking will finally face their Karma? Will they fight back to maintain the status-quo? Will corruption in government suddenly stop and everyone repent? Unlikely. Expect push-back, distraction tactics, more attempts at lies and misdirection. “Take no notice of the man behind the curtain.” (Wizard of Oz paraphrase).

Expect conflict as the old ways are drowning in the mud they created, but fight back with every trick they have. Expect a financial crisis or collapse (history, anyone?) as the deregulation of some industries throw us back into the old ways of boom-and-bust.

Our savior? Open communication. Exposing hypocrisy, crime, and deception to the public.

With Pluto and Saturn in Conjunction, expect more accountability by the perpetuators of the old ways and the promoters of new ways. The sociopathic evil wizards in power today will fight to hold on to their golden calf. But, awareness, knowledge, and communication are the weapons they cannot fight.

Still, the population of earth is a wide and varied group. Old souls and young, all with different agendas. Some of us are aware, honorable, and compassionate. Others of us are fear-based, violent, and emotionally disturbed. Will all this stop and equalize for the better? Unlikely, but we will turn the wheel so that the light is stronger than the darkness in us. Compassion and logic will rule over self-serving emotions and greedy actions.

Saturn and Jupiter move into Aquarius, the sign of egalitarianism, brotherhood, and humanity. This, then will be the call of the majority. The old dark, greedy ways will begin to crumble under its own weight.

The old saying “follow the money” will still hold true, but where we place our money will change. The fringes of this can already be seen in the cry and call for better food. The popularity of boxes of sugar-fat-salt with little nutritional value and stuffed full of potentially harmful ingredients is plummeting. Companies Kellogg’s, Nestle’s, Pepsi, and Coca Cola are heeding the changing tastes and looking for ways to take out the unwanted ingredients, i.e. GMO, carrageenan, artificial coloring and flavorings. Organic produce sales are on the rise. Many pharmaceutical practices are in question. (Epipen price hike, anyone?)

In large part, the people shouting into the wind for positive change have made only tiny inroads, often silenced by the big guns. In 2021, this all begins to change. Protesters and whistle-blowers will be taken more seriously and will be more widely heard. Visionary leaders will attract more supporters. Innovation to reverse the systems that have brought our environment to a crisis will be in the forefront. The money will be made in environmental health and in alternative medical practices joining forces with modern medicine.

Maybe it will finally be financially beneficial to find an affordable cure for cancer, Alzheimer’s, and other devastating diseases. I’m wondering how the behemoth-sized medical insurance companies in the United States will change. Their strangle-hold over medical care has created an enormous mess where full health-care without it is near-impossible for anyone but the rich.

From 2018-19, Uranus is in Aries and Taurus. This will bring revolutions. Uranus is the “blow-out without warning” planet and Aries is the “head-down and ram your way through” sign. But Aries isn’t good for a finish. Fortunately, Taurus is the “get-it-done” planet and will see the revolution through to the end.

Most, if not all, revolutions in the world, including the French and American revolutions in the 18th century, Brexit, the Arab spring, and the (cough, hack, “surprise!) election of Donald Trump all started under Uranus and Aries’ influence. Should we expect less now?

Complacency is, like so yesterday, battle-cries and activism are the new “in” things. Entitlement is out, earning is in.

Uranus (Ouranus) is the Greek god of revolution. He is Caelus in Rome. Uranus is locked tight right now with Eris, a recently discovered dwarf planet, bring sharp focus to the revolutionary energy. In Mythology, Eris is a goddess of conflict, strife and destruction. Uranus and Eris were conjunct just before the great depression of the 1929 and the rise of Hitler in Germany.

In March 2017, they made a last conjunction but the seeds if conflict, especially military have been sown. It’s up to the enlightened revolution to stop the ongoing, endless wars in the world.

CONCLUSION? Expect a bumpy ride for a while but in the end, Earth just might be a great place to live—until the next cycle begins. At 70 years-old, I probably won’t be around to see the “golden age” in full flower, but I’m happy to be a part of its beginning.

Mercury symbol

Mercury

YAY! Mercury turns DIRECT at 5:50pm today (1:50am GMT) in Sagittarius, 13 degrees. I don’t know about you, but this one hit me hard. I couldn’t muster up any enthusiasm for work or doing any of my many beloved projects. Yesterday, I pretty much laid around, worked on my jigsaw puzzle, and watched Christmas movies on TV—mostly insipid and uninspiring. Then watched Crown on Netflix—amazing and wonderful series.

Sensing the change coming even before I looked it up, in the evening, I suddenly had mucho energy,  rearranged the living room furniture, and watched The VOICE finale on TV. I already knew who won but enjoyed the show. CIA is so uncomfortable to watch but I love her voice. And, what’s with Pherell Williams’ red hair? And that oddly mesmerizing but truly bizarre performance by N.E.R.D?

chloe-kohanski-billy-idol-the-voice-finale-performance

Sound mix was all wrong for what I was hoping to be the best of the best—Chloe and Billy Idol. All we could hear were loud drums and guitars drowning out their voices. See it here: https://youtu.be/7ghv9MJHlfs. Better yet, watch one of Chloe’s best: https://youtu.be/yVKw88lmoDA.

Sorry for the diversion, but, hey, Mercury is DIRECT. Mind clearing, enthusiasm for life returning. Wanna dance, sing, create a-mazing goodies with flour and sugar!

This Mercury retrograde clouded our thinking and fuzzied our brains. Bad choices, confused time schedules, created havoc with appointments and anything purchased is likely to have to be returned, or replaced, or repaired. Christmas gifts purchased under this retrograde have a greater chance of being returned or having something wrong with them.

I once read that the majority of men do their Christmas shopping Christmas Eve. Smart move this year. Mercury is direct so that sweater you receive probably won’t unravel, the jewelry likely won’t break, and the candy most probably won’t have bug parts in it. Feel safer with gifts purchased after today.

wizard-2525852_960_720

Dreams now could be vivid and contain important messages. Meditate on The Magician Tarot Card (ruled by Mercury) for inspiration and psychic messages.

Mercury is conjuncting (at 14 Degrees Sagittarius) the astronomical anomaly called the “Great Attractor. This wild and weird place in the sky is sucking galaxies into it like a ravenous college student with a bowl of Ramen. What this means astrology-wise? Other than upping our creative ability, IDK. But, it’s still awesome.

Until January 18, 2018, we will still be somewhat under the spell of Mercury Rx. It needs to reach Sagittarius 29 before we are truly clear about our next adventure or able to actually dive into our next project, but prep starts NOW.

Black_Hole_Milkyway

2017 SOLSTICE – December 21-24, aligns with the galactic center. And….??? you ask. This is a great time for ritual work, mantras ,meditations, and inner soul searching to bring our 8th house issues around our Shadow Self to the light for transformation into positive energy for our lives.

MOON IN AQUARIUS on December 22. It SQUARES Jupiter in the early morning, spurring prophetic dreams and glimpses into the spirit realms or alternate dimensions.

It SEXTILES Uranus in Aries tonight. Good time for philosophical conversations or crazy, funny banter. This is a good time for seeing UFOs, too. If you haven’t seen The Last Jedi, tonight is the night when you will get the most enjoyment from it or decipher a secret code embedded in the film.

On Christmas Eve, the PISCES MOON brings in some sentimentality, and Christmas cheer. Expect a tear or two of joy and heartfelt emotion.

ICHTHYSEver wondered why the fish is a symbol for Christianity? ICTHYS (Latin for Fish) became an acrostic that the persecuted Christians cleverly came up with as a secret symbol: Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter (Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior). Keep in mind, though that this didn’t happen until way after the supposed miracle man supposedly walked the earth. Originally Icthys was a Pagan symbol for fertility because it resembled female genitalia.

I know this has nothing to do with astrology, but now that my mind is back on, my ADD has kicked in full swing.

Happy Solstice to All and to All Good Tidings,

Arabic Parts in your Horoscope

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

for arabic parts - Bartolomeu_Velho_1568small

Arabic parts (sometimes called Arabic Lots) are mathematical points based on the Ascendant (Natal). They are activated by transits in either natal or progressed charts.

Arabic Parts can be traced back to ancient Babylonian, Egyptian, and Hermetic astrology. They had become a standard astrology practice by the 1st Century as a part of Hellenistic astrology (Dorotheus of Sidon). Before classical Astrology (Greco/Roman) they were called “Lots.”

After the fall of Rome, Astrology practice and research fell to the Arabians and Persians who translated Greek astrology sources and continued to develop the “Lots.” The Persian astrologer, Abu Ma’Shar (787-886) describes at least 55 Lots.

Around the 10th century Arabic astrology manuscripts began being translated into Latin for European astrologers. Guido Bonatti, a 13th century astrologer, assumed that the Lots had originated in Arabia, so the name was changed to “Arabic (or Arabian) Parts.”

Arabic parts are an interplay between planets/angles, and cusps, and are similar to midpoints. Continue reading

Karmic Astrology and the Part of Fortune

Tags

, ,

pof-in-wheelThe Part of Fortune is an Arabic Part. Arabic Parts are also sometimes called “Arabian Parts,” or “Lots.” They have been a part of predictive astrology for centuries and are invaluable for fine-tuning predictions and for use in Karmic (past life) astrology.

Arabic Parts were first derived by Ptolemy around, 300 BCE and further developed in the early middle ages by Al Biruni, a Muslim mathematician, astronomer, and Sanskrit scholar. In the 11th century, he listed 97 Parts in his book, The Book of Instruction in the Elements of the Art of Astrology. It was translated into English by R. Ramsay Wright and published in London at Luzac & Co., 1934. You can find it on Amazon.com.

What are Arabic Parts?

They are calculations of planetary positions (most often three) that influence specific areas of the human experience. The math to calculate Arabic parts, although simple, when multiplied 97 times, becomes laborious if you do them by hand and few astrology apps offer an Arabic Part module. I typically use 3 -10 parts depending on what I am looking for in the client’s chart.

Examining Arabic Parts, gives us a deeper glimpse into the horoscope and how it impacts our lives and, for Karma Astrology, a glimpse into our past incarnations.

Even though there are 97 Parts, the most commonly known today is the Part of Fortune (POF) (Pars Fortuna). Although often misunderstood or not understood at all, the Pars Fortuna is one of the most powerful points in an astrology chart. Astrologer Martin Schulman called it the “pot of gold” in our charts. Through the POF we reach and express our core being.

The shows us the way for our Sun, Moon, and Ascendant to work in harmony and points the way to the Yellow Brick Road to our greatest good. It shows us how our Karma holds us hostage and how to release us from its chains.

sun-moon

By using our Sun, Moon, and Ascendant in their most positive expressions, life goes more easily. If used in the lowest sense of their expression, the POF becomes the Part of Misfortune and life is plagued with obstacles and difficulties. Difficult aspects to the Part of Fortune show karmic challenges put into place for us to work through. For example, if the Moon is squared Sun, the POF will also form a square to the ascendant from either the 4th or 10th house. This shows stress and difficulties with parents—a very karmic situation. Finding ways to resolve the issues, frees the POF to work more harmoniously through us.

Most astrology programs include the Part of Fortune. If not, you can simply calculate for yourself: Add the sign, (Aries is 0, Taurus 1, Gemini 2…) its degrees and minutes to the Moon’s sign, degrees and minutes. Subtract the sign, degrees and minutes of the Sun.

The POF shows us where our greatest joy can be found. Continue reading

Political Astrology and the Many USA Charts

Tags

, , , , , ,

 

One of the most crucial elements in any political astrology reading is having accurate birth information—for the person, and for the country in question. That can be problematic because when a nation was “born” is not easy to discern. For example, The United States has a menu of charts to choose from, including the Sibly, Evangeline Adams, Lee Resolution, and Dane Rudhyar charts as major players. Just because one is used more often than the others doesn’t mean that the others in consideration can’t offer up valuable information, too.

The Sibly Chart

July 4, 1776, 5:13 pm EST, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

usa-sibley

The most commonly used chart for the United States of America is the Sibly, published in 1787. It gives the U.S. Sagittarius rising and Sun in Cancer. This chart is based on various sources that mention the document being signed or adopted in the “early evening.” The major source is from Freemason, Dr. Ebenezer Sibley, an astrologer and physician in London. He wrote that the Declaration of Independence had been signed a little after 10pm GMT (Just after 5pm Philadelphia time), July 4, 1776. This gave a rising sign of 12 Sagittarius 21. In the 1940s, Astrologer Dane Rudhyar rectified this chart to 5:13:55—10 Sagittarius rising.

Using this time and date may seem like a no-brainer, but historical records only state that the Declaration was adopted in the early evening then delivered to the printer. Copies were printed by John Dunlap during the night of July 4 and ready for distribution on July 5. At the time of printing only two had signed the document: John Hancock and Charles Thomson. The rest of the signatures didn’t come until August or even later. It was reprinted with all the signatures in October.

The Philadelphia Historic Society has notations from something Thomas Jefferson wrote about hearing an old man say it was “late in the afternoon,” when the document was signed. They also have notes from John Adams, and John Quincey Adams saying that they signed “late in the day.” No date or specific time is given.

Why I Can’t Fully Buy The Golden Dawn’s Astrology-Into-Tarot Mapping

I totally agree with you. WTF?

Arrow in Flight

IMG_5451
These cards are part of this cool Astrology-themed Oracle deck I have called the Oracle of the Radiant Sun. Each card captures a single Planetary placement using the seven visible or “classical” Planets and the 12 Zodiac Signs. Since 12 x 7 = 84, the deck has a total of 84 cards, all chock-full of this great, old-time-y artwork.

The deck also perfectly illustrates one of the main and hugest reasons why I have serious issues with the way that the brilliant British mystical society known as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn tried to map astrological symbols onto Tarot. I do firmly believe that the Golden Dawn members did genius-level work overall, and also that this kind of mapping might not even be truly workable – not if, like me, you want the results of any such efforts to exhibit perfect symmetry and efficiency and whatnot.

Full Moon in August – The Fool on the Yellow Brick Road

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

It’s the long anticipated Full Moon in Aquarius today and tomorrow. This is a Moon that sings to the tune of the Fool Tarot Card. New beginnings, starting over, major changes.

Fool

You might think you need to have all the answers, all the plans in place, every duck in a row. You might feel that it’s not the right time, or that you are not ready. To that, the universe says, “Bull-pucky and Bantha Poodo. Take the leap. Ignore the man behind the curtain. As for the little dog of reason nipping at your heels, give him a loving pat, pick him up and step off the cliff.

This Moon is a call for the leap of faith for your greater good and growth. So step off and become the Magician Tarot card. Accept a new direction, a greater experience of life. You have all the tool you need. The universe provides opportunity, wisdom and guidance if you allow it.

maj01.jpg

“Ah,” you say, “But what’s the catch?” Well there is the Moon and Sun opposition, sextile and trine to Uranus (the heart of Aquarius). Sun and Moon opposition means you might have to make a compromise between your fire and water natures—you’re wanting it NOW, on a silver platter, and your emotional, intuitive feelings about proper timing. Let the universe do its work. Follow your intuition but don’t let emotions bog you down.

As for this marvelous Moon sextile Uranus and Sun trine Uranus, The Full Moon is in Leo, whose ruler is the SUN—Heart, largess, boldness, expansion and Uranus is change, the unexpected, what’s new and unique.

Sextiles are “gifts from the gods and goddesses. Let go and accept what they bring—dreams creativity, visionary thinking, community, friendships, exciting change, moving in the right direction at the right time. But you have to risk, trust, and take the first step on your own. You might feel bare-naked and out of your element, but persevere and you’ll find the Emerald City.

Take the Cowardly Lion to find courage (Leo), the Mechanical Man to find his heart (Moon), The Scarecrow to find his brain (Aquarius), and the little dog, Toto (to keep everything balanced). You might have to give up something along the way—feelings of being powerless, not worthy, lost? The reward awaits so click your ruby slippers and step onto the yellow-brick road to find your way home.
