Are you having any fun yet? This Full Moon highlights the creative energy of the child. Remember what it was like to look at the world through a child's eyes, full of possibility and wonder at all the joys around us! With the Sun in Fixed Air and the Moon opposite in Fixed Fire it may be up to the Leo Moon to show us how to have fun right now. The polarity of these two signs is about the creative and often-times dramatic expressions between the individual and the group. Who leads... the Leo of course! And who says how to play fair and allow everyone a chance to express themselves... the Aquarian!
The Sabian Symbol for 19 degrees of Leo is A Houseboat Party. The symbolism of being afloat on a houseboat allows for an unfettered flow of energy, an escape from the norm, a time of social freedom among individuals. While it may be too late to send out invitations and order Tiki lights for an impromptu gathering, perhaps you could look at the power of Fun in your life. Who are your friends and do you take the time to just be together with people whose company you enjoy because they allow you to be yourself and vice-verse without worrying about social acceptability or respectability? The enjoyment here is about freedom and acceptance of self and others.
Another celestial event today is disciplined Saturn doing an about-face for the next five months, as he turns retrograde in the last degree of Libra until June 25th. This is an opportunity to revisit the relationship concerns and lessons of the past three months. As Saturn goes back over the territory where you sought balance, since the end of last October, you may finally get some closure on a relationship issue or an understanding of your responsibility to others that you have worked so hard on. Harmony isn't going to happen all in one day, but any sincere efforts you already made or continue to make, will begin to show up over the next several months. By the time Saturn gets ready to move out of Libra in the Fall, you will hopefully have an even keel under you and know where your responsibilities lie as Saturn prepares to plunge into Scorpio.
Communication, connecting with others and listening are also on the agenda today as the Sun lines up with Mercury in Aquarius. Pay attention to new ideas that come in from out-of-the-blue, or a comment heard from a sibling or friend. Maybe it's time for you to speak up in a group meeting. When this energy of logic and interaction is lined up with the solar and lunar energy of a Full Moon, there's an important message there between your inner and outer self! Maybe you need to get quiet in order to hear the message.
Receptive Venus leaves sensitive Pisces after midnight entering into the forceful first sign of the zodiac, Aries for a month. This planet feels more comfortable in the signs of Taurus and Libra which enhance her powers of attraction and beauty. While her sweet nature is more easily expressed in gentler realms than that ruled by aggressive Mars, look for strong female leaders or spokespersons for women's issues to be heard from in the month ahead. Sometimes, it takes the beauty to tame the beast. Venus in Aries is a good time to start a new savings regime, one that isn't risky.
With the Moon in earthy Virgo Wednesday and Thursday, efforts are best turned toward organization, especially of health and/or paperwork concerns. Cleaning the cupboards, eating more healthy foods and doing an internal cleanse are all great Virgo expressions. Focusing on detail work that involves close attention, or gathering all your paperwork for doing the taxes is another good use of your time. If you've already done your taxes, you could clean out the useless files you no longer need in that old filing cabinet. Then the Moon enters Libra for Friday, Saturday and most of Sunday . Expect your tranquility to be interrupted early Friday evening as the upstart energy of Uranus opposes the Moon and something unexpected may show up! And don't expect a peaceful or uneventful morning Saturday either when powerful Pluto squares off with the Moon possibly bringing up a very challenging dilemma. Sunday seems to be the most harmonious when the Moon makes more pleasant aspects to the Sun and Mercury before joining with Saturn at 4:09 pm for it's final stop in Libra and an hour's reprieve as it wends its way through to Scorpio at 5:36pm.
