As the cosmic change agents pressure the institutions and bonds that we look to for nurturing and security, this month’s Full Moon drives home the emotional realities of their condition — and calls us to action.
That call is going to be hard to ignore, because motivating influences are woven into the tapestry of this Full Moon. It locks neatly into the ongoing Uranus/Pluto square (the source of the aforementioned pressure). The link-up enhances the intensely personal, emotional and inescapable ramifications of their evolve-or-die edict.
It also creates an aspect pattern called a t-square, which is a dynamic configuration that has opposing forces stressing the body between them. In this one, the Sun and the Moon (plus Pluto) are amping up the volatile, firecracker properties of Uranus in Aries. When he goes off — and he will — the explosion will send shock waves into our relationships, agreements and contracts. Warrior god Mars is poised to follow through on those and will be moving in to do just that in the days after the Full Moon.
On the actual event, though, Lone Ranger impulses will be erupting all over the place. Some will be happy. Some will be from hitting a wall and no longer being able to put up with a situation. All will eventually lead to forward movement of some kind in dealings and arrangements with other people.
As if one t-square weren’t sufficient incentive to move off dead center (at last), this Full Moon occurs with a second one in place, involving Jupiter and the Nodes of the Moon squeezing Neptune in the middle. Jupiter is barely clearing the South Node of the past, whipping up thinking and connections from long ago. His presence on the communication and media axis is swinging the seesaw wildly between knee-jerk or archaic reactions and the way of the future. With cosmic spin doctor Neptune as the pressure point, it’s anybody’s guess what’s true and what’s a lie, what’s real and what is an illusion. The one certainty is the motivation this Moon delivers to step out of the fog, analyze, use discernment and establish your own boundaries.
It’s a major moment of reckoning. We’re experiencing the emotional realities of the foundational changes that are rocking our sense of security. Long-term implications are coming to light. Personal truths are being revealed, just as ways we’ve fooled or deluded ourselves are being revealed. The point? Motivating us to abandon collapsing structures, clear out rubble and debris and head for sturdy, solid ground. If you can’t see it directly, your guidance knows where it is.
