This week we are amping up to Friday's FULL MOON at the 29th (final) degree of Libra, opposing Uranus just in the beginning degrees of a seven year transit of Taurus.
Uranus brings the future to our doorstep in unexpected ways, through sudden insights and sudden upheaval. Uranus is the insight and technology that lies beyond the rules and boundaries and time-tested ways of Saturn. Uranus is the nonconformist and rebellion against the stagnant mundane. Uranus was in Aries early 2011 through early 2019, and now in Taurus, we are getting acquainted with a distinctly earthier vibe as a channel for the futuristic lightning bolts Uranus sends to push us forward and out of our comfortable complacency. With the sun (light of consciousness) sitting with Uranus bridging the cusp of Aries and Taurus, and the moon (the subconscious) at the final degree of Libra, we taking a last look at that era of 2011 to 2019, especially regarding our relationships and how we navigate the territory of how we relate to others and where we end and "other" begins. The Aries/Libra polarity is always teaching us about relationships and how we must have a strong sense of self (Aries) in order to have healthy interactions and relationships with others (Libra). This full moon, because it is in Libra, is ruled by Libra's ruler Venus. Just on November 16th Venus finished her several week retrograde by turning direct at 25 degrees Libra opposing Uranus in Aries. Now we have a full moon at the 29th (karmic) degree of Libra opposing sun in the final degree of Aries conjunct Uranus in the first degrees of Taurus - the light of consciousness sits with Uranus' capability to bring sudden insight and revelation as the two bridge that transition that is the cusp from Aries to Taurus. Be open to receive insight - there may be a big "aha" moment coming.
Energy Forecast by Day:
Sunday April 14th through Saturday April 21st:
We continue Saturday's vibe through Sunday with the moon still transiting Leo. Leo vibes support creativity, generosity and play - watch any tendencies for being full of yourself, selfish, or egotistical; sometimes Leo can get easily carried away. The moon goes void-of-course at 7:38 pm MST until the wee hours of Monday morning, so Sunday evening and night is the perfect time to do routine self-care or house-keeping and catch up on rest.
Mon. 4.15: The moon enters Virgo 4:13 am, where it will stay until early Wednesday morning. This is a great Monday to hit the ground running and blast through that to-do list. Update the calendar and streamline your daily routine, making sure exercise is included. If you have any work requiring focus, attention to detail or critical thinking, today and tomorrow are your days. Just watch out for overthinking or letting your "planning" turn into anxiety-generating worry over an imaginary future. The intensity is increasing as the full moon approaches, so remember to stay grounded and centered, working from your foundation of the here and now. Your power lies in the present moment, always. Today is also a day that supports art, beauty, aesthetics - maybe even a little romance. Happy Monday!
Tues. 4.16: With the moon remaining in Virgo all day, it is a continuation of Monday's energy, supporting critical thinking, attention to detail, and just getting things done in general. The moon goes void-of-course at 10:20 pm for the night only, so make use of this time to get good rest.
Wed 4.17: At 5:22 am, the moon enters Libra, where it will remain right up until Friday's full moon at 5:12 am. The intensity of the full moon drawing near should be palpable now and this will increase until Friday morning when the full moon is exact. Full moon's are always intense, but with an extra zap from Uranus, this one might feel a bit more electric. Libra is the sign of relationship and partnership, ruled by Venus. Libra wants balance, harmony, peace, love, beauty, and cooperation. Libra wants to be "in relationship." However, Libra can want those things so badly that it becomes too much of a pleaser and gives itself up to other to maintain relationship and "not rock the boat". Then of course resentment builds. Aries, the sign opposite Libra, is the self. It teaches us about being independent and having a healthy sense of self when entering into relationship with others, so that we are interdependent rather than codependent or dependent; interactive and integrating rather than enmeshed. The moon when in Libra is ruled by Venus. Emotionally we may be longing for more peace and harmony in general in our lives or specifically for loving and harmonious relationships in our own lives.
At midnight, Mercury (the messenger) moves into Aries, where it will remain until May 6th. Aries is Libra's opposing sign and the sign the sun is currently in and will be in for the full moon on Friday. Mercury is our mind and thoughts and verbal expression. Aries is the leader, the warrior and the pioneer - the fiery hot head. Mercury in Aries is about decisiveness.
Thurs. 4.18: The moon remains in Libra all day today, but with Mercury freshly into Aries, we will feel the shift from Wednesday being a Libra moon with Mercury in Pisces to today being still a Libra moon with Mercury in feisty Aries.
Fri. 4.19: At 5:12 am (MST) the FULL MOON will be exact at 29 degrees Libra. At the same moment the full moon is exact, the moon is also making its final aspect from the sign of Libra and then is void-of-course for a short time until 6:40 am when it enters Scorpio.
As the intensity of the full moon subsides and we allow to soak in whatever illumination we have received with it, the moon shifts into Scorpio. All Friday and through the night the moon will be beginning its waning cycle as it glides through the powerful depths of Scorpio. On the heels of (possibly mind-blowing) insights and revelations courtesy of the full moon conjunct Uranus, our intuitive and emotional guide moves into water sign Scorpio, a sign known for its desire to go deep and bring great healing and transformation. With the full moon on the final and karmic degree of Aries/Libra, any issues of imbalance, power struggles, toxicity, or resentment illuminated around relationships that has been highlighted now has the opportunity to be released and old wounds soothed with the healing balm of forgiveness. Scorpio's emotional strength and perseverance adds depth to Aries sense of self and need for independence. We are reminded of the importance of being strong in our own self-awareness and sense of self before we can come into right relationship with other. Use Scorpio's emotional fortitude and willingness to face the shadow and know the truth to truly look at and understand what the full moon has revealed to you so that you may heal it. Scorpio is a specialist in the realms of the shadow and facing demons that steal your power. Facing your shadow so that you are fully self-aware and ruler of both realms within is when you access your true power and are no longer driven by the deep-seated wounds and fears of held within your subconscious. Let the moon guide you to find healing today.
Sat. 4.20: In the early morning, at 1:55 am MST, the SUN officially enters Taurus where it will be shining its light on the Taurean earth energy and the area of our lives it expresses itself in. Taurus as a fixed earth sign seeks greener pastures, but also wants the stability of being on solid ground and can have a stubborn side. Being Venus ruled, Taurus loves indulging in creature comforts and the pleasures of life. Taurus can sometimes over-focus on possessions, but truly enjoy every moment of good food and drink in the company of good friends.
At 9:10 am, VENUS transitions from Pisces, where she is exalted, to Aries, the territory of her divine partner Mars which represents masculine energy, her polar opposite. Venus, ruler of Libra and Taurus, representing our values, self-value, finances, possessions, love expression, and the divine feminine - the power of obtaining our desires through receptivity and the art of attraction, after a surreal swim through Pisces, now arrives at the beginning of the zodiac as she enters Aries. Aries, ruled by Mars, represents the energy of the divine masculine, the chase, going directly after what you desire, impulsiveness, leadership, assertiveness, decisiveness, and a pioneering spirit that wants to courageously explore and conquer uncharted territory. Spring is now in full swing as our lady of love steps into a brave (and possible passionately sexy) new world until May 15th, when she moves into her own sign of Taurus.
The MOON continues to vibe Friday's feels, remaining in Scorpio all day until 8:59 pm when it goes void-of-course, then drifting towards Sagittarius overnight. Not only is Scorpio unafraid of the dark and capable of awe-inspiring transformational healing, this deep fixed water sign has intuitive abilities so strong its more like psychic radar. With the moon in Scorpio we can connect with the shaman and not only our inner realms, but other realms. After deep psyche diving yesterday, ride the waves of the aethers with today's energy and be open to the gifts and messages the supernatural has to offer. Scorpio's ultimate expression is the Phoenix rising from its own ashes - the ultimate transformation. Scorpio can fly just as high as it can dive deep, and it uses the gifts of both to heal, transform and transmute.
At 8:59 pm the moon goes void-of-course until it reaches Sagittarius at 8:59 am Sunday morning.
Sun. 4.21: At 8:59 am la luna bounds into optimistic and nature-loving Sagittarius. Sagittarius is a fire sign, and the element of fire always is inspirational, creative, and enthusiastic. Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, wants to believe in the BIG truth. Sagittarius rules over things like big ideas, philosophy, religion, spiritual beliefs, faith, higher education, learning and teaching, and even gurus. Sagittarius is always seeking to know more, itching to travel, experience adventure, and constantly discover new things. The energy here is high spirited and inspired, full of optimism and faith, but can skip over important details and be too impulsive. Be inspired, get fired up, and harness that faith, optimism and sense of adventure. Just don't go chasing after dreams that haven't been completely grounded in reality.
Soak up the healing the past few days have brought, continue to let go of what has come up to be released with the full moon as the moon wanes back to new, and take time to enjoy and appreciate the beauty and love that is in your life. What do you find beautiful and inspiring about this world, this experience of life? What inspires you? What are you passionate about?
