Tonight's Full Moon is exact at 11:58pm, starting a long void-of-course Moon period that ends on Tuesday when Luna enters Leo at 6:03am. Full Moons enlighten and inform us, while bringing added tension via challenges into our lives; they are also powerful opportunities for breakthroughs and release from past confinement. That energy has been reinforced this weekend by the Sun's annual alignment with Pluto and a square to Uranus. If we've been paying attention the last couple of years, to what doesn't feel right and where we need to make changes for ourselves, we ought to know a bit more about where we are headed and to how to get there! While situations may not dissolve overnight, the renewed clarity you ought to have about your life's purpose is showing you a way to unblock the path forward.
The Sun and Moon are involved in a Grand Cross with the Nodes of the Moon and Uranus and Pluto. If there was ever a time to step up to the plate and make a difference in your life or your world, that time is now! I don't mean today necessarily, but going forward. For some, you are ready to take action, for others you still need to let new insights percolate as the Full Moon continues to distribute and inform you over the next couple of days. Just remember that the last aspect the Moon makes in Cancer also begins a long VOC period, lasting until it enters Leo Tuesday morning. So don't start anything new between now and then. As a matter of fact, it would be wise to continue removing obstacles in your path over the next two weeks and make new starts after the Aquarius New Moon later this month.
Playing supportive roles in today's Full Moon play, are Venus (love, values and beauty) and Saturn (necessity) bringing opportunities for positive growth. You must take advantage of any opportunity that presents itself now for this aspect to benefit you. The Sun in practical Capricorn is also in a harmonious relationship to the asteroid Chiron (the "wounded healer"/ rainbow bridge) for healing and growth. Efforts at taking care of one's body and supportive structures, ie: skeletal system, job or career, can pay off in the long run. Patience, perseverance and forward action will move you ahead harmoniously. If you don't get off the couch, you won't go anywhere... so don't sit around waiting for your goodness to come to you, you have to make it happen!
I am excited about the possibilities of this time period, not only for individuals, but society in general. What has the past two years of six Uranus/Pluto squares shown us? Is the world still experiencing power struggles, inequality and suffering... yes, it is. Are people more aware now than they were forty years ago about the needs of our planet to survive and what we can do to help stop the destruction of global resources, such as clean air and water...? Yes, we are! Are the BIG corporations and world governments trying to control all the resources and keep people in the dark... why yes, they are. However, we are a global society now, and we realize that the old "us/them" paradigm is on the way out. Therefore, individual efforts to preserve our rights to information and connecting is growing and that's why I'm hopeful!
Remember, keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground~
