We've got a Full Moon coming! This Full Moon at 8 Aquarius-Leo is fixed, heartfelt, idealistic, penetrating, and very efficient. Here what we’ve been imitating up to now can be seen as patterns for the “future in the making.” This two weeks opens the door to gifts, rewards, and unique interactions and relationships where we can conduct ourselves on a very high level of awareness and cultural refinement.
Today's article will cover an overview of the Lunation and some of its primary qualities. Part 2 will cover the various rising signs around the globe and the Sabian Symbols. Part 3 (if I get to it this month) will cover the aspects, configurations and patterns, and which signs are most likely to be affected by where this falls in their charts.
This stabilizing, unique, and synthesizing Full Moon increasing our vision and creative heart expression falls at 8 degrees of Aquarius and Leo. This Lunation, helping us integrate our power and turn the corner on new roles and duties expressed simply, plainly, and showing us how to use knowledge and skill to meet the demands of a stage yet to come, occurs January 26 at 8:38 pm PST, 11:38 pm EST, and 4:38 am Greenwich (UT) January 27.
An overview of this period ruled by this Full Moon shows it will illuminate our ability to see a bigger picture, and let go of lesser duties, obligations, limitations, or any sense of heaviness and through capturing forms of heart power and creativity, we can dislodge and/or stabilize life affairs where we have Taurus. Be practical and sensitive when making decisions, and then go find the information you need to pull the whole thing together in a bigger picture.
The focus of the light will reveal a new way to contribute to our social or emotional awareness, or show us social and emotional patterns we can imitate since they show what others hold valuable. Turn away from old limitations and restrictions and accept a greater duty or responsibility, keeping it simple and pleasant. Here we make some basic personal decisions that help us integrate our feelings with our sense of responsibility.
This Full Moon will ultimately be stabilizing and comforting for those who confront the deep transformations promised by the Lunation in a very powerful T-square with Saturn in Scorpio. This continues the theme of No Fear!! Now that December’s Yod squeezed out a lot of irrelevant chatter and information, we can now concentrate and find special qualities and conditions through which to integrate the old and the new, the traditional and the innovative, at a very high level of social functioning.
Here we begin to rise to a more refined level of social interaction, or a higher, more sophisticated and refined way of relating to our own feelings as we move through social experiences. This is a very long term structuring power offered to humanity at this time. We now have learned the power of harmlessness, becoming fearless to radiate a calm that transcends normal understanding.
It began Spring 2012, and now we enter an unknown space time sector where we will learn how to turn wilderness into beauty, and refine something Natural so it expresses our sense of elegance and refinement. As the Saturn sextile Pluto will be with us for quite a while, relax into the intensified feelings and experience the beginning of the emergence of a deeper and larger “group consciousness.”
Ultimately this is a stabilizing and integrating Full Moon, and given the aspects in play, the next two weeks will bring a lot of great gifts and unique interactive conditions, released through the movement beyond stuck situations, or the solidification of resources and solid assets, whether material or non-material. If there’s a problem with money, resources, or assets, see what must be eliminated or reorganized to get magnetism working productively, and get a higher synthesized view to see shortcuts to accomplishing what you want.
Remember too that Jupiter, while it’s no longer in the major league December Yod, or Finger of God, in play for several weeks between Saturn and Pluto both quincunx the nozzle of the Yod, Jupiter in Gemini, now prepares to move forward toward the zone where it will again make Yods in late March. Pay attention when the Moon is at 11-12 Gemini over the next two months, since that will give big hints about what’s coming.
The Yods created by the Moon in Gemini during these times (Jan 22, Feb 18, Mar 17-18) will reinforce the “expansion through sacrifice” energies that were required in December preparing us for late March. This brings the light of deep awareness to the productive possibilities in that “sacred signature” the Yod symbolizes. Give whatever up that you need to, get focused, and be a good juggler as you open to new vistas of conscious, concrete development, and continue to let go of the ghosts of your past.
The other big news is that Jupiter is again triseptile Saturn, setting those larger non-rational energies into motion. As this involves Jupiter and Saturn, expect more obsessive-compulsive irrational arguments and positions in the public sphere, with some dramatic forks in the road of destiny for many people and nations.
We experienced this waning triseptile between these planets off and on between July 2011 and May 2012 from Taurus to Libra. Now we experience it again for the last time, from Gemini to Scorpio. This has put all our affairs influenced by these signs, as well as Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces, at a critical turning point in our lives, where our social existence, our philosophical inclinations, and our sense of responsibilities, are being sifted through to come to a new level of cooperation, whether internally or externally.
So some things won’t make much sense in the next few weeks, even as choices are made that will help our discoveries lead us to new forms of nurture by this coming Summer. The next two weeks, many will face critical decisions, choices, and changes that will throw their destiny forward, shaped by those decisions and choices. Here it’s good to remember there are many ways to express a choice so others don’t misunderstand. Areas most impacted are 6-8 Gemini, 27-29 Cancer, 19-21 Virgo, 11-13 Scorpio, 2-4 Capricorn, 23-25 Aquarius, and 14-16 Aries.
As Saturn in Scorpio leads the occupied span in this Lunation, eliminate whatever you need to that would interfere with you accepting the new duties, responsibilities, and self-determination you’re gathering. The space created can attract circumstances and people through which we can develop skills helping us deal with the wild ride of The Grand Irrationality that's in continuous motion during these months and years.
To sum up, it’ll be an important two weeks, with friction helping us integrate our Light with our Higher Responsibilities. There will be many gifts and very harmonious social connections made these next two weeks, with rewards for courage and very special relationships forged.
Make decisions that help your life work more smoothly, but make sure you’re working off of up to date information and understanding and have a clear vision of what life would look like after the decision. Since things are pulling every which way over the next two weeks, try to get a larger integrated synthesized vision of what’s really going on, and with a good plan and a time to start, you can short cut the process of evolution in whatever ways you need to!
