Spend Some Time in and Around Water to Harness the Full Dynamic Power of October’s – Full Moon in Aries

RJM_1682.JPG
Like this Full Moon, my beautiful daughter lacks the water element in her birth chart and simply lights up in the Ocean 🙂 Include plenty of the Wet Stuff to Bring Balance during early October!!

If you’d like to receive my New and Full Moon reports in your Inbox a little earlier each month, you can sign up to my Newsletter here.

 

A Boost in Motivation

The Full Moon in Aries will exact on October 6th 2017 at 04:40am AEST, GMT +10) bringing with it a likely boost in energy levels and motivation.

It’s time to get things moving and take action towards those goals!!

Tap into some of that Aries daring and just do it!!

 

Fighting For Needs and Protection 

Mars is the ruler of this Full Moon.

The God of War is at his highest expression when fighting on behalf of a cause or the needs of others

… and if you’ve been feeling unheard or ignored of late then you may find you’re compelled to speak up about that too.

 

Are You Doing What You Want?

With Aries’ concern with the self, this energy can receive a bad reputation for selfishness, but you know what?

Being selfish and self indulgent sometimes  is down right liberating.

This is a great Moon to finally sign up for something you’ve wanted to do for yourself, but perhaps you’ve been putting off due to feeling guilty or bound to others.

 

Overcoming Challenges, Reactivity, Impatience and Aggression

The week leading up to a Full Moon can illuminate that which is in need of healing or personal patterns in need of some conscious attention.

With Aries energy in the spotlight, we’re talking: reactivity, impatience, frustration and aggressive outbursts; especially where there is anger that hasn’t been dealt with or fully acknowledged.

With a square to Pluto thrown in for good measure, there may be a rise in emotional intensity and potential volcanic eruptions.

Especially heightened with Pluto due to be moving at his slowest and turning direct on September 29th.

The week leading up to this Full Moon is likely to contain some raw power!!

The stuff that moves mountains, but it can also run amok if not harnessed and channelled effectively.

 

Potential Relationship Dramas

Relationship angst is a likely strong theme as the Me (Aries Moon) versus You (Libra Sun) polarity is highlighted and that Pluto contact can throw in some drama too, so I would highly recommend dealing with issues early on.

 

Illuminating the Dark Side

You may also be given insights to energy previously categorised as ‘bad’ or ‘negative’ and, which you have attempted to suppress.

How do you deal with your anger?

Were you raised to believe that good people don’t lose their temper or perhaps don’t even feel anger?

If you tend to ignore it, push it down and hope it will go away, it may just come back in full swing during the lead up to this Full Moon.

Resentment, Depression and Skin Rashes are all possible manifestations of angry emotions that have not been expressed and if you’re someone who usually says yes to everyone and everything (at your own expense) then you may find it hard to hold it together now.

 

Dropping The Rose-Coloured Glasses 

With 3 placements in Libra (Sun, Mercury and Jupiter) diplomatic solutions are possible.

But with the Sun and Mercury inconjunct Neptune you may need to drop your idealism and take off those rose-tinted spectacles.

We are human beings with a wide array of different moods and emotions.

Expecting peace and harmony at all times is unrealistic.

How about we have a go at loving one another unconditionally, exactly as we are in any given moment?

That doesn’t mean that we allow others to run rough shod over us or that we look after everyone else’s needs and neglect our own.

But it does mean that we can hold space for others who may be losing their shit around this time and respond with compassion and understanding.

Patience is not likely to be a strong point  now, but thankfully Aries anger is quick to ignite and quick to diffuse, so try not to hold on to grievances.

 

Motivated by Love

With Mars (ruler of this Full Moon) and Venus snuggling up close in Virgo it would be wise to use these insights for some self or relationship improvement rather than berate yourself or others.

Pluto also offers us the chance for transformation – maybe through talking or modifying your communication style and this energy is also pretty gifted at showing us our emotional depths.

What imbalances are playing out here?

What does the situation need?

 

Advice for Coping – Include the Wet Stuff!!

If you are finding the run up to this Moon a tricky one, I highly recommend:

  • Drinking plenty of water (1 litre per 22kgs of body weight is the recommended daily amount) and spend time in and around water if you can – baths, ocean swims… This Full Moon chart is lacking in the water element; bringing a risk of burn out, stress and lack of consideration for other’s feelings. Sitting by a waterfall and listening to it may well help to soothe any stress and bring you back into balance. The photo I used here is of my daughter (yes, I know she is beautiful 🙂 ). She also lacks the water element in her natal chart and simply lights up in the surf!! Spending time in and around water completes and balances her. We may all need some of this early October.
  • Safely expressing any anger or resentment that you’re currently feeling before early October
  • Writing out any anger that is still being felt around this Full Moon – for example, with a burning ritual
  • Upping the exercise to mitigate potential anxiety or to release pent up energy
  • Ensuring that your brain (Aries Rules the head) and your nervous system are well nourished in the run up to October 6th may help to mitigate anxiety and lower stress levels  (Especially with Mars’ placement in Virgo at this Full Moon). You may have to think on your feet!!
    • Brain Foods =Applies, Almonds, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Cabbage, Blueberries, Walnuts, Rockmelon (also known as Cantaloupe Melon depending on where you live), Watermelon
    • Soothe Stress and Potentially Related Digestive Upsets = Lettuce, Pine Nuts, Ginger, eat lots of Magnesium-Rich (i.e. apples, avocados, apricots, pineapple, peaches, grapefruit, garlic, seeds and whole grains) and Potassium-Rich foods (i.e. apples, apricots, bananas, avocados, brown rice, dates, grapefruit, leafy veggies, kelp, lemons, sesame seeds)
  • Get enough sleep (aim for 8 hours every night)
  • Meditate for at least 10 minutes a day to help lower blood pressure and increase feelings of harmony and spiritual connection
  • Spending time alone to process your feelings may prevent you from taking them out on anyone unnecessarily.
  • Looking for ways to improve how you express your anger – books, courses, counsellors, therapists…
  • Consider taking a Bush Flower Essence like Black Eyed Susan to help lower any stress or anxiety or book a Bush Flower Essence Consultation for a blend specific to you.

 

Personal Power in Overcoming Challenges

This is a great Full Moon for rising to and overcoming any challenges that are thrown your way.

If there’s something you’re looking to start then Aries energy is a good a time as any and with November’s New and Full Moons falling in the fixed signs of Taurus and Scorpio that would be a great time to apply staying power to whatever has begun now.

So, what are you going to channel all that fiery energy into?

 

Which area of your life is likely to be affected by this Full Moon?

Where does this Full Moon fall within your natal chart?

If you’re unsure of how to find this and would like help with understanding your natal chart, you can sign up for my newsletter and receive my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness” for free.

Look for 12 degrees and 42 seconds of Libra (The Sun), and 12 degrees and 42 seconds of Aries (The Moon).

Which house axis (areas of life) is being highlighted in your chart?

Are there any planets, which fall at (or very close to) 12 degrees within your natal chart?

Those situated between 10 and 14 degrees of the cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn) and also Virgo, Scorpio, Taurus and Pisces are likely to add more to the picture.

The Potential for Confusion, Going with the Flow and a Touch of Compassion- Full Moon in Pisces September 2017

The Potential For Confusion and Overwhelm & The Need to Go With The Flow

If you’d like to receive my New and Full Moon reports in your Inbox a little earlier each month, you can sign up to my Newsletter here.

 

Apologies for the Confusion

Okay, so before I continue, you have every right to be confused.

I totally messed up on my latest Full Moon post and somehow managed to blend the energy of the upcoming September New Moon in Virgo (occurring September 20th) with this week’s Full Moon in Pisces (occurring September 6th).

Yes, that’s right – there is no Full Moon in Virgo this week – The Full Moon is falling in Pisces, but there is lots of Virgo energy around, as the Sun is currently in Virgo (and will oppose our Pisces Full Moon).

Mars will also be in Virgo as the Full Moon hits and Mercury (currently retrograde and obviously having a massive impact on my personal energy) will also re-enter Virgo very soon after the Full Moon (on September 10th), so some of my original post remains here and some will re-feature in my up-coming post on the Virgo New Moon on September 20th.

I have no idea how I did it or why it took me until this morning to realise what I’d done.

Only that I’d started to write about the New Moon before the Full Moon this month and that obviously paved the way for me to go completely off track!!

Lesson learnt!!

I’ve had my butt whipped by Mercury and his very recent journey through my own Sun Sign (Virgo) and I’ve also had Mercury Retrograde conjunct my Sun in Virgo with me for the last year (as denoted by my Solar Return chart), so it’s been a big year of lessons, reviews, renovations and restructuring for me on many levels – personal, home, financial, career, commitments…

And yes, part of that is needing to take responsibility for more forward planning and organisation with Mother Earth Astrology!!

Anyway, enough of my babbling.

Sincerely sorry for the mistake.

Time for a cuppa now for me and to schedule a planning date in my diary.

Thank goodness the reno on our home is almost complete – yay!! more time for my beloved Astrology 🙂

Much Love, Toria xo

 

The Need to Go with The Flow

Yes, in case you haven’t already noticed, Mercury is retrograde at the minute.

Virgos and Leos are the ones in the firing line this time around, as Mercury has been moving backwards through your signs, but that doesn’t mean that the rest of the signs are immune.

Mercury rules Virgo and Gemini in Astrology, so no matter which sign he’s backtracking through, these two signs tend to be strongly affected every time he retrogrades.

And…

… we all have these signs somewhere in our charts, so despite those three signs being strongly activated right now (Gemini, Virgo and Leo), it’s also likely that you’re being affected in some way too.

For me personally, there have been changed appointments, links that usually work failing, network issues and all the usual Mercury Retrograde shenanigans playing out within my life and within the lives of friends, neighbours and family.

As we’ve moved through these last two weeks in the build up to our Full Moon in Pisces, however, I have flowed with whatever has been asked of me by choosing to be in the moment.

Pisces teaches us the Art of BEing, The Art of Going with the Flow and the Art of Trust.

 

Releasing Expectation, Learning the Lessons, Forgiveness and Trust

I have learnt over the years that it is usually my own personal expectations that make what appears in my daily life hard to deal with.

By learning to trust what is happening in every moment and to be present with that (exactly as it is), it is amazing time and again how life proves to be delivering exactly what I need.

So, the next time you’re stuck in traffic, your lunch date gets held up or blows you out or your child doesn’t react in the way that you expected, try taking a deep breath and meeting life exactly as it is in that moment – no judgement, no anger, no frustration…

What is the best thing that you can do at this point and how is that working out for you?

Virgo is a mutable sign, so maybe Mercury’s Retrograde through Virgo has required greater adaptability, flexibility and the ability to think on your feet?

Through Leo, is he asking you to re-work what sets your heart alight or re-think how you like to create?

And yes, there’s also the lessons that retrograde planets bring to us.

So, if you’ve also experienced a couple of weeks of change, flux, delays, rework and uncertainty, how can you take responsibility for it?

Do you need to communicate more effectively?

Could there be a tinge of criticism or bossiness in your communication style or maybe a hint of drama that is asking for your awareness?

Do you need to check and double-check appointments, event times, phone numbers?

Do you need to slow down or make greater time for rest and relaxation?

Do you need to let go of expectations?

How do you react when things don’t turn out how you anticipated and how can you better deal with it if that reaction isn’t serving you?

Pisces also teaches us compassion (of self and others), forgiveness (of self and others) and release, so this is a great Full Moon to be aware of how you might be holding onto grudges.

What do you need to let go of?

Is it time for a forgiveness ritual?

 

Compassion, Oneness and The Call to Service

Many people have felt a calling to be of service in the build up to this Full Moon.

Especially highlighted is the assistance being given to the people of Texas following the devastation of hurricane Harvey.

Pisces energy reminds us that we are all one. It is compassion, kindness and charity.

This will be especially heightened by Neptune also sitting conjunct the Pisces Moon.

Prayers also carry loving energy and I am a strong believer in their power, so if you want to help someone, but can’t do so physically (because you’re far away or they’re not open to receiving help from you), it may help to pray on their behalf instead.

 

Increased Sensitivity, Intuition and Empathy

On a personal level, you may be noticing an increase in your own sensitivity and that may make you feel like withdrawing and being alone; especially if you view the World as harsh or are surrounded by others who don’t share your need for gentleness.

Spending time in nature can be helpful, as can meditation and spending time with your soul self (higher self).

Meditation will also strengthen your intuition, help to lessen anxiety and increase your ability to go with the flow.

So much Piscean/Neptune energy can also bring the potential for confusion and for feeling foggy.

If this is you or you’re connecting with anxious feelings then beginning a daily meditation ritual could work wonders.

The Sun and Mars in Virgo energy loves rituals – are yours serving you?

 

As Within, So Without

Are your surroundings a good reflection of your inner self?

When Virgo energy is strong, we can feel strongly affected by clutter; suddenly needing to have a clear out, a clean up and to have everything in its rightful place.

The Piscean/Neptune influence can work well with this and we can use our intuition in the form of a Feng Shui tune up.

How does your home environment feel?

Could certain areas be cleaned up or re-organised?

I feel it’s no coincidence that our renovations are still in full swing at home having recommenced at the time that I began my recent 25 day Fast.

Remember that your outer World (what you are manifesting out into the field around you) is a reflection of your inner state.

Is your home a loving, peaceful sanctuary? How does it affect your energy?

We still have Venus, the North Node and Mercury (stationary) placed in Leo as this Full Moon hits, so why not embrace your creativity and see what you can re-design?

 

Do Something that Inspires You or Inspire Others

Playing music and/or watching movies that inspire and uplift you are also a great way to enjoy the Pisces Full Moon energy.

I watched Hook and Moana over the weekend with my little one – both awesome.

It’s so sad that we lost Robyn Williams so young and through such tragic circumstances, but how blessed are we with the brilliance that he left us.

He had the ability to inspire and uplift many of us through his acting.

Those with the ability to act often embody a strong Pisces, Jupiter or Neptune influence to their energy.

What Artistic gifts would you like to share with the World as we enter this Full Moon?

Is there something that you could do in your daily life to help inspire, uplift or heal?

 

Illumination of Shadows

Full Moons can also bring our shadows to the surface, so be aware of the negative aspects of Pisces, which may show themselves to you as we get closer to the moon’s fullness –

  • Overwhelm (of life, of emotions) – see meditation advice above if you relate to this.
  • Confusion (feeling vague, lost, foggy,) – could diet be playing a part? Gut/Brain connection?
  • Denial of Responsibility (wanting to bury your head in the sand instead of dealing with any issues that are presented – hint: dealing with them will put you in a better place 🙂 )
  • Dishonesty, Delusion or Deceit (of self or by others or often by own expectations)
  • Feeling Powerless/Like a Victim of Life – how can you take steps to begin to empower yourself?
  • Addictive Patterns/Behaviours (Drink, Drugs, Running Away, Hiding, Over-eating – as above… is there anything that you can do to start to break the pattern?)
  • Lack of Personal Boundaries (in relationships with others – perhaps you find certain people draining and need ways to better protect your personal energy or perhaps you need to say no more often and attend to your own needs as well as you do everyone elses…)

 

Could Early Wounds be Playing a Part?

Saturn in Sagittarius’ square to Chiron in Pisces remains active at this Full Moon indicating that low self worth and/or feelings of inadequacy could be arising now.

Are unconscious behaviours now be illuminated?

Do you or does someone else need to acknowledge how grief, deep emotional wounding (perhaps from childhood), or fear may be playing a part in these patterns?

Perhaps you fear your own sensitivity, appearing vulnerable and/or other’s judgements?

Is it time to release negative emotional patterns that may be holding you back from shining your light?

 

Mercury – Change of Direction

Mercury will turn direct on 5th September 2017 at 09:29:22pm (AEST, GMT+10) after journeying through Virgo and Leo this month, which should bring some forward momentum after a period of rework, rethinking, repair and possible withdrawal, so expect a smoother ride from this Full Moon onwards for a while.

The more wisely your use of the Mercury Retrograde period, the smoother the onward journey is likely to be…

 

Relationship Patterns

Of course, Mercury Retrograde can also bring up some communication issues in the form of relationship dilemmas.

What has the run up to this Full Moon taught you about your own communication style or your own style of relating?

Our relationships can serve as a mirror reflecting to us that which is in need of healing within us or the shadows that we are playing out in our daily lives.

Is it time to claim it all, to let go of blame – it really is all with you and all up to you.

How can you change that reflection to make your life more of what you want it to be?

Full Moon in Sagittarius 2017

Full Moon in Sagittarius 2017

Sign up to my Newsletter here.

The Freedom to Stand in your Truth

So how’s your truth barometer going out there, blossom?

Sagittarius is a sign greatly aligned with truth and with the Black Moon (also in Sagittarius) sitting conjunct this particular Full Moon be prepared to want to honour yours.

You may find (especially if you’re particularly sensitive to energy) that your BS radar is particularly fine tuned this month as well.

If you’ve been feeling suppressed or held back, the build up to this full Moon could find you struggling with that and wanting to let it all out.

Inspiration and Motivation

The warm and radiant Fire Grand Trine (Moon, Saturn, Leo North Node and Uranus) is helpful in that it is infusing a dose of courage, faith and motivation into making changes at this Full Moon.

What makes you feel vital and alive?

Do more of that.

Honour Spontaneity, Adventure and Your Vision.

Be Truth, Be Open.

Pursue Growth and Expansion.

The T square involving the Full Moon, Saturn and Chiron may indicate that painful experiences, illness or pain are the driving force behind or maybe this pain is coming up for you as you move towards being all that you want to be during this life time.

Old wounds, low self confidence, an inability to feel ”seen’ for who you really are or a lack of courage may present themselves.

Do you feel free to express exactly who you are?

Ultimately, it is you that is responsible for your emotional well-being, so please listen to what it is that you’re needing right now.

There is something that you innately know about who you came to be during this lifetime.

Are you pursuing that?

Wise Teacher

Perhaps someone or something has appeared within your life (or will do so as we get closer to the Full Moon), who will act as a teacher or guide for you at this time.

Or perhaps you need to seek out that person.

Who can help you with forward progress?

Relationship Tension

The ruler of this Moon is Jupiter; currently travelling through Libra and stationary at the time of this Full Moon, so expect some intensity if growth is required in one or several of your relationships.

Sometimes growth requires discomfort and a relationship cannot be it’s best without some emotional honesty and the freedom to be yourself.

If a relationship is not respectful of your freedom or your needs, it could feel stifling right now.

At the time of the Full Moon, Mars will be in Cancer forming an almost exact sextile with Venus in Taurus conjunct Uranus.

Perhaps the desire to rebel is conflicting with the urge to belong to or to care for others.

Can you meld the two together?

Is there a way to make it work and to cooperate without losing the true essence of who you are or your sense of freedom and space?

Wisdom

Sagittarius is also about wisdom and ultimately that means your own inner wisdom.

Do you have a strong, innate connection to your inner self/your inner wise man/woman?

Do you tune in and listen to what your heart desires?

If you’re feeling lost, lacking in purpose or uninspired it could be time to take up a spiritual practice.

Whatever draws you; whether that be yoga, meditation, going church or a regular group, which nurtures your spirit and strengthens your intuition, could prove greatly healing right now.

Toxic Emotions/The Shadow Side

Remember that Full Moons tend to bring out the shadow, so watch for the shadow traits of Sagittarius, which may present themselves at this time – Moralistic Behaviour, Judgement, Excess, Clumsiness, Irresponsibility, Tactlessness.

Toxic Emotions, which serve to hold you back may also surface now – Fear, Guilt, Lack, Duty…

These are Ego-based emotions that keep your energy low and letting these emotions drive your actions can make life seem dull, miserable and burdensome.

If you’re sensitive, it may also be worth considering having a News break or a Social Media Sojourn.

It’s amazing how a reconnection with the real World around you can restore inner peace and give you more time to do the things you love.

Choosing Self Love and Vulnerability over Fear

With Venus in Taurus at this Full Moon, why not choose Self Love and to elevate your Self Worth?

Yes, it may feel frightening to stand in the true essence and light of who you are and it may feel especially vulnerable, but that vulnerability is often your greatest asset.

After all, you cannot be yourself whilst you are fearing what others’ will think of the real you.

Do things that make you feel grateful, that nurture and love your body and which increase your overall sense of well-being.

Even if at first, that feels a little ‘selfish’.

Working on you is actually one of the least selfish things that you can do, because when you’re functioning from a full cup,  it increases your capacity to be there for others, to raise the vibration of the Planet and to be a source of light and joy for those around you.

Do this and you’ll likely tap into the positive aspects of Sagittarius – Faith, Optimism, Honesty, Spontaneity and Adventure.

In Honour of those Leading the Way

This write up would not be complete without honouring the amazing people who refuse to stay silent against wrong-doing in our World.

The courageous souls, who become ‘whistle-blowers’ or who stand up against the might of the system for those vulnerable souls, who do not have a voice (including our animal kingdom).

There are some mightily inspirational people out there standing in their truth and bringing through the most amazing changes to make the Earth a better place.

At this Full Moon, please consider lighting a candle and praying for them and all that they do. It’s no easy task; especially when they often risk persecution, ridicule, disbelief and sometimes danger.

Please be mindful of what you believe in; especially News reports, which often seek to divide and conquer.

Your heart always knows the truth, so tune in often and always question what doesn’t feel valid.

Which area of your life is likely to be affected by this Full Moon?

Where does this Full Moon fall within your natal chart?

If you’re unsure of how to find this and would like help with understanding your natal chart, you can sign up for my newsletter and receive my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness” for free.

Are there any planets, which fall at (or very close to) 18 degrees within your natal chart?

Those situated between 16 and 20 degrees of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) and also Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn are likely to add more to the picture.

Healing Relationships, Cultivating Self Love and Balance – Full Moon in Libra 2017

www.motherearthastrology.com(6)

Sign up for my Newsletter here.

Relationships, Compassion and Healing

April’s Full Moon will fall in the sign of Libra on 11th April at 04:08pm (AEST) again highlighting our current Jupiter transits and continuing the push for powerful transformation and growth.

This transformation is likely to take place through relationships, relating and/or your relationship with yourself.

Venus rules this Full Moon chart and placed alongside Chiron in Pisces, she indicates the potential for deep sensitivity, compassion and the possible connection with old wounds.

Illumination of Pain Points

Past pain around being unlovable, betrayal (usually of own ideals/expectations) and the struggle for independence within a relationship may arise now as could difficulty with even minor conflict.

Saturn in Sagittarius moving to square Chiron shows the likely need to take responsibility for healing (your own, a loved one or a relationship) and can highlight where fears and restriction may be keeping you bound.

Guilt, Inadequacy, Shame and a lack of self worth can all feature during this transit and you may have to face where walls have been erected that are no longer necessary.

You may have to consider where your desires and/or values are not being met or acknowledged.

Could it be that more self love and assertion (in asking for what you desire) is needed here?

You may also be experiencing financial issues, which can be a reflection of low self worth and can contribute to a feeling of constraint.

Full Moons tend to heighten energy and illuminate what needs attention.

If you’ve had an intense, chaotic and drama-filled build up to this Full Moon then it might be worth considering some changes.

The Moon’s square to Pluto can rumble up deep emotions that may have previously been buried and can also indicate power struggles and/or darker emotions; such as depression, envy and rage.

With Uranus thrown into the mix, there can be sudden revelations, outbursts and the ability to see or connect with what was previously hidden.

With only a few more days until she turns direct, what lessons has Venus bought to you and what now needs to be addressed?

Click here for my Venus Retrograde post if you haven’t read it or would like a refresh 🙂

The Quest for Peace and Sensuality

Libra wants to keep the peace and sometimes at all costs, but such feelings need to be felt, experienced and worked through if true harmony is to be achieved.

Burying emotions and pretending that they don’t exist can lead to them appearing bigger than they truly are.

Remember that our reactions and the way that we deal with such emotions often determine the outcome.

If you’re feeling envy, try looking at what that person or thing has shown you about your own life. What do you desire that they have?

If you’re feeling a sense of rage, try looking at what’s triggering it. Do you need a physical outlet such as regular exercise or more physical connection with your partner (Mars is in Taurus after all) or has someone pushed a boundary too far?

If you’re connecting with darker moods, then maybe there’s a need to clean up your diet, detoxify and/or spend more time outdoors.

With Mars in Taurus inconjunct this Full Moon, the need for greater sensuality and closeness could be strong.

Slowing down and making time for the senses may bring a greater sense of well-being. Think delicious food, massages, nature walks, essential oils …

It’s also possible that stubborn behaviour could be preventing closeness.

Using Mercury’s current retrograde to review what is arising, patiently working through any issues and finding practical and realistic solutions whilst holding yourself and others in compassion may help.

Breaking out of Restriction(s)/ Transmutation and Personal Power

Independence and growth may also feature strongly and you may find conflicts arise with your loved ones; especially where someone may be feeling restricted.

How are you honouring your need for adventure and expansion?

Are any of the above pain points holding you back?

When faced honestly, such pain can be transmuted and released opening us to deeper levels of awakening and re-connecting us with our personal power.

Balance

Balance is a key Libran theme.

Are you looking after everyone else’s needs and neglecting your own?

Are you spending too much time at the office and not enough with loved ones?

What steps can be put in place to allow you greater freedom, independence and the ability to enjoy what you value?

What Area of your Life is this Full Moon Highlighting?

Remember to check your chart and to look for where 21 degrees and 32 seconds of Libra and 21 degrees and 32 seconds of Aries fall.

Which house axis is being highlighted and what areas of life does that axis represent?

Do you have any planets sitting around 21 degrees within your chart? What are they bringing to the table?

A funny thing happened as I started to write this blog post.

I began to feel overwhelmed and anxious and I felt totally incapable of doing it.

I started to think of all the other things that I really needed to be doing and I really couldn’t think how to express what I was seeing in the chart.

I felt blocked.

That’s no surprise given the energy that I’m seeing in this Full Moon chart and the fact that it falls within 2 degrees of my natal Sun.

A walk, some Calm and Clear and a mini meditation were enough to let me know that it wasn’t the right time to write this particular blog post and to step away for a while.

And then today, I came back to it and it flowed.

Everything in Divine Time 🙂

 

Busy, Busy, Busy – Virgo Full Moon and Jupiter Triggers

With the second hit of the Jupiter/Uranus Opposition just behind us and with Jupiter now moving to trigger the second hit of the Jupiter/Pluto square, you may be feeling pushed to the limit.

Jupiter brings growth – awesome!, but it can also bring excess and when squared with Pluto we’re talking powerful and (at times) uncomfortable (square aspect) growth.

Monday’s Full Moon highlights these Jupiter transits and with the Moon falling in Virgo (a sign synonymous with busyness, hard work and perfection), you could easily feel like you have too much on your plate.

 

Potential for Negative Emotions and Illumination of Pain Points

Full Moons heighten energy, so you may find yourself going into overwhelm or connecting with negative feelings; such as anxiety and inadequacy this week.

Watch for a tendency to wanting to do everything perfectly and for excessive self criticism, which could induce nervous tendencies and take you out of your flow.

Virgo energy has high standards and with Saturn in the mix, this can bring up a sense of there being “no time” leading to paralysis and the inability to let life flow through you.

With The Moon opposing The Sun/Chiron conjunction (potential illumination of wounds) and creating a T Square (challenging aspect) with Saturn (burdens/blockages/the work)  you may find yourself connecting with old wounds, so watch how you’re reacting to current situations.

Are those reactions applicable to what’s happening now or are they magnified and out of context due to them triggering a past hurt?

With Mercury in Pisces squaring Saturn, you may be finding it difficult to communicate about such pain points and could be feeling unsupported. You may also have to face where you are holding onto a rigid viewpoint that is due for a change.

It may be revealing to look at where low self worth or a sense of not being valued could be playing into these negatives; especially with Venus currently travelling retrograde.

Making a list and going through it in order of priority can help to lessen anxiety and bring order to chaos.

 

Heightened Sensitivity, Clouded Judgement and Letting Go

Heightened sensitivity and an inability to see things clearly could also be playing a part with Pisces energy still strong in our skies (Neptune, Chiron, The Sun, Mercury all in Pisces) and Neptune not making any strong contacts to other planets in the chart .

Is it time to let go (South Node in Pisces) of old patterns of behaviour, excess…

… or maybe of a tendency to pushing your rock up hill?

Neptune is flow energy, so if you’re not tuned into your internal rhythm, you may find that you’re coming up against blocks and stop signs.

Perhaps it’s time to pause and strengthen your connection to your higher self?

Daily outdoor walks, yoga, meditation and deep breathing are some ways that you can do this.

 Such practices can alter our perception of time for the better and decrease stress levels.

 

Tiredness and Potential for Illness

With Venus travelling Retrograde and Mars currently moving through Venus-ruled Taurus, you may also be feeling more tired than is usual; perhaps even experiencing illness, which can be a Virgo manifestation.

If this is the case then it may be a sign that The Universe/God/Source wants you to slow down and rest for a while.

Illness and Tiredness can exacerbate such negative feelings, adding to the inability to gain a true perspective on where things are at right now.

 

Strengthening of Rituals and Purification

Our daily rituals are a fundamental foundation of how we feel on a day to day basis.

When life gets busy, doesn’t seem to be going your way or you experience illness, what happens to your rituals?

Do you continue with healthful daily practices, strengthening them where needed or do you throw them out of the window in a “I haven’t got time for that” type of manner?

Yes, we’ve all done it, but those rituals are what will keep you anchored when life gets really tough and without them what do you think is going to sustain you? Hint: it’s not the 15 Mars Bars that keep calling to you!!

Virgo presides over rituals and I would highly recommend smudging your home, your car, yourself and all those who live with you as we move towards this Full Moon.

The February eclipse bought up so much, that there may well be lots of residual energy hanging around, needing to be cleared.

 

Living Your Passion Through Service

Virgo is a sign of service and with the Jupiter/Uranus opposition falling at the midpoint of Mars and Venus at the time of this Full Moon there is potential for deepening the connection with your passion(s).

How would you like to serve whilst you’re here on Earth?

What outlet would connect you with daily joy and enable you to express yourself at your fullest?

 

What do you Desire?

This is also a great indicator for relationship growth and you may find that you are able to connect more deeply with your sensuality at this time and to understand what it is that you desire from your partner.

How can you both grow together from this point?

What do you need to do differently to waken things up a little?

Desires can also extend to other sphere’s beyond intimate relationships.

Is Venus’ retrograde journey prompting you to reassess what you desire in life?

 

Valuing Yourself and The Law of Attraction

With Venus Retrograde in the Full Moon chart and sharing a mutual reception (travelling through each others’ signs) with Mars in Taurus there is a big question of ‘How are you valuing yourself?’

Is it all work and no play?

Do you make time for rituals that value your body …

… Candle Light Baths, Massages, Regular Hair Cuts?

Do you feed yourself nourishing and healthful food?

If you feel like you’re constantly in a spin and that there’s no time to spend time on you, then how is that eminating out into the Universe and what are you subsequently attracting to yourself?

Think Law of Attraction here.

For example, if you’re valuing yourself and gifting yourself down time, then the Universe will reflect that back at you and bring you more to value yourself with.

On the other hand, if you’re barely making 5 hours sleep, constantly complaining of how busy you are and striving to hold everything together, how’s that going to reflect?

Jupiter sits at the midway point of  Venus and Mars in Venus’ sign (Libra) indicating that self-love and time spent on our own personal worth could help you to re=establish balance within your life.

Self Love and Self Worth always starts with you.

… and now I’m singing Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” in my head 🙂

 

What Area of your Life is this Full Moon Highlighting?

Remember to check your chart and to look for where 22 degrees and 13 seconds of Virgo and 22 degrees and 13 seconds of Pisces fall.

Which house axis is being highlighted and what areas of life does that axis represent?

Do you have any planets sitting around 22 degrees within your chart? What are they bringing to the table?
