"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse In Aries & Mercury Retrograde

  Tonight's Full Moon is at Aries 26: A Man Possessed Of More Gifts Than He Can Hold. Lynda Hill, brilliant Sabian Symbol interpreter has this to say: This can show talents, possessions, opportunities and possibilities that may be overwhelming, or, it can show the need to let go of some things in your life that are now redundant, not working or not bringing you any rewards from hanging onto them. To me, this says let go of what is outdated, outmoded or no longer useful in my life. This can include things, relationships and even old "gifts" that were once very meaningful in my life.

   The Libra New Moon asked us to look at putting things back into balance in our lives. This Full Moon eclipses what we need to let go of in order to do that. The Lunar Eclipse highlights where you have more than enough to hold, juggle or balance in your life. Remember that Eclipses can be powerful times of jumping ahead if you use the energy wisely. If you acknowledge what you feel strongly about in certain situations or relationships, you will know the truth of whether or not they still serve to add balance and harmony in your life.

   This weekend, Saturday night to be exact... we also have energetic and aggressive Mars in analytical Virgo opposing nebulous Neptune in free-flowing Pisces. That says to me, be careful not to let your idiosyncrasies get the better of you. Know what's important and let go of the small stuff, especially if it involves seeing the beauty in relationships. Take care of your part and let others take care of theirs. 

   Be compassionate and understanding without being overly critical. Perhaps, treat others as you would like to be treated yourself. And avoid a tendency to bury your head in the sand or imbibe too much as you don't want to create a situation where you didn't pay attention to the signals in front of you just because it was too uncomfortable. Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em!! 

   Okay, a quick reminder that Mercury goes retrograde on Monday through November 10th. We have been in the shadow phase of this Mercury retrograde in Scorpio since October 1st and will stay in the shadow even after Direct motion, until Mercury moves beyond 18 degrees Scorpio on November 27th, just in time for Thanksgiving!

   I am reminded of something I learned long ago, that not all opportunities are available to me just because they present themselves. Sure I want to have people, situations and things in my life and I believe that the ones meant for me, come to me when I am ready to accept them and when I recognize them as my gifts. May you have clarity in identifying your own gifts and their purpose in your life.

   Remember, keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground!
