This Full Moon at 7 Aries-Libra is cardinal, activating, direct, and moves our lives forward quickly. This will show us a new level of our functioning, and begin the end game of letting go of the ghosts of the past we’ve been dealing with for about 2 years. Expect more hard adjustments and crosscurrents. Sacrifices give spiritual focus.
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 will cover the aspects, configurations and patterns, and which signs are most likely to be affected by where this falls in their charts.
This initiating, volatile, and archetypal Full Moon that will pull us in many different (and sometimes conflicted) directions falls at the 7th degree of Aries and Libra. This Lunation, helping us get it in gear and break free of ambivalence and feeling split between multiple unresolvable forces, occurs March 27 at 2:27 am PDT, 5:27 am EDT, and 9:27 am Greenwich (UT).
An overview of this period ruled by this Full Moon shows it will illuminate our ability to move in our world on several levels simultaneously, where we can concentrate our energy and focus on new beginnings we have no power to stop. Having set these in motion in 2010, and shed many ghosts since then, this is the time to live the higher spiritual vision related to this process.
Here we can get insights into what to tame, what to protect, what to uplift, and find ways to rise to some urgent situation that shows us our true role in life. A balanced approach is best.
This Lunation is short on practicality with a lot of focus on feelings and inspired thinking. Movement and activity are paramount, and it will seem things are unfolding with breathtaking speed despite the Piscean echoes reminding us to have a compassionate mind and view of things. Even if you feel you don’t know, remember this is the end of some ghosts. Direct the mind with precision, humor, and more positive directions.
The focus of the light will reveal a need for a balanced approach to all things, and show us how to do some form of “transmutation through service” that helps us capture another facet of our emerging archetype and role in the world. Again, we began that process in 2010, along with seeing a future that created a new Path for each of us in early 2011. Then we began to let go of the ghosts of the past via the June Solar Eclipse in Gemini so that our lives would have enough space for the new archetype to develop.
We’ve now cleaned out enough that it’s clear what’s left to let go of to complete the process, and this Full Moon helps us do that through direct action, as well as opportunities to redirect our energies to new initiatives. This one moves us all through endings and beginnings into larger things, and despite the friction, it will help bless what’s coming that will provide a greater security in June, July, and August.
As with last month, be discriminating about what is core and what is peripheral while seeing it all through the eyes of radical compassion. Here we can find we’ve graduated into a higher realm of some sort of mastery or service, and are forced to grow in ways that guarantee us an unveiling of a mystery and the ability to launch a new way of life.
This Full Moon helps us move into new beginnings that may resemble old beginnings. As this Lunation makes a very powerful T-square with Pluto in Capricorn, keep your sense of perspective and balance as you turn important life corners. Some things are leaving forever, except those that are part of your greater “Spiritual Mystery.” Through curious forms of “good fortune” via “invisible helpers,” we can find great illumination and deeper compassion.
Find an appropriate emotional vehicle to navigate this time of tremendous feelings. Once we find the right “emotional intelligence,” then the more we care, the more we become sensitive to, the easier the flow through the crosscurrents. We cannot avoid the crosscurrents, but we do not have to feel helpless in navigating them.
Last month we got to part the veils and enter the “sacred chamber” leading us beyond old ego limitations. Keep the discipline of rising to a more refined level of social interaction, or a higher, more sophisticated and refined way of relating to ours and others’ feelings as you 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, and those who have lessened their fear can now radiate a calm that transcends normal understanding.
It began Spring 2012, and we’ve now entered an unknown space time sector where we will learn to view much of what goes on at core through a sense of life being a “science experiment,” with our task to understand the laws that underlie what’s going on. 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 Full Moon will bring tremendous understanding of a bigger picture and ways to care with deep compassion for what has been, what is going or gone, and what is to come. This Lunation will pull us all in many directions, some of which are frictional. We still have the two interlocking Yods I’ve been writing about, and now face those plus a Cardinal T-square of major proportions along with Mercury square Jupiter.
Again, I’ll write more about these things in part 3. The next two weeks will bring release, relief, hard turns, more sacrifices and tremendous opportunity for growth in inspired, caring ways. For some this period will signal the appearance of their “global self,” freed from local assumptions and limitations. It is definitely a time to “divorce the past,” and see different levels of evolution as an infinite staircase we all travel across countless lifetimes.
There is a potential for tremendous stability and clear understanding, as well as great productivity and ability to move out of the old into the new. This may challenge some of our conception of larger opportunities offered to us, whether it forces us to scale things back or open to greater possibilities.
To sum up, it’ll be an important two weeks, with releases that take us to the core of our own spiritual “authority,” show us important facets of our “Spiritual Mystery,” with friction helping us integrate our Light with our feelings to express more compassion and caring. This will be a hard adjustment to a new reality for many, but you already saw it coming.
With the preponderance of planets in Aries and Pisces, feel what you need to feel to know what’s ending and what’s renewing. Even if things get unclear, intuition is very high, as are the energies to cultivate “the spiritual mind.” Still, as you navigate the blending of thoughts and feelings, eventually you will have to make decisions and actions, so be compassionate as you leave the past behind.
