This is the Full Moon known in the Eastern traditions as the Wesak Moon, representing the time when Buddha comes to bless the faithful and reconnect with spiritual neophytes, disciples and initiates. The emphasis here is on human souls striving to become living exponents of what is known as the Ray of Love/Wisdom. Our job as spiritual beings having a human experience on this "earthwalk" is be compassionate and strive through prayer and healing thoughts to uplift mankind and care for the planet.
The exact time of the Full Moon, 3:16 pm, also begins a long void-of-course (VOC) lunar period that lasts until the Moon moves into upbeat Sagittarius in the wee hours tomorrow (1:44 am). The focus of this Full Moon in the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio, with the Sun in Fixed Earth/Taurus, is on maintaining your integrity, your values and your determination to smooth the way forward. Emotional imbalance can knock you off your path forward and upset the balance of important relationships, especially those people trying to help you achieve your goals. Scorpio is all about co-creation and this Full Moon will highlight how well you are doing along those lines.
Helping us along today is a flowing Grand Trine in the Water signs, Cancer. Scorpio and Pisces. Water is the element of emotions and the unseen feelings that connect us with nature and each other. Joint ventures in creative endeavors and humanitarian pursuits benefit as inspiration flows from this cooperation of Jupiter's expansion in Cancer, the Moon in Scorpio and healing Chiron in Pisces. Harness this energy today to make progress in your endeavors!
There are some challenging aspects today between Venus/Pluto and Mercury/Pluto. When Venus is in Aries, she can appear as too pushy, trying to get her agenda through, but hitting the Capricornian stone walls which Pluto is desperately still trying to defend. Tread softly and use Aries ability to try new tactics instead of butting your head against the same old belief system of power and control. Mercury in its own sign of Gemini just wants to cruise around and socialize with everyone, but is keenly aware of Pluto's defense mechanisms, like a goalie around the net, warding off any attempts at scoring... (hockey metaphor intentional... GO Bruins!) Instead, Mercury has to ask new questions in an attempt to figure out what it is that's really bothering others. It has been said that you're never upset for the reason you say you are... reading between the lines and not taking anything personally would be good today!!
Remember to keep your head in the stars, your feet on the ground and your heart open~
