Full Moon Madness

I spent several hours today writing about Thursday's Full Moon in Aquarius ... only to discover the whole post has disappeared!

That is a small example of the weird energies that are disrupting our plans and expectations.  That which seems solid is not (Saturn sqaure Neptune) as the lines between truth and fiction are becoming more and more blurred. We are going to have to get creative if we want to survive this period with our sanity intact.

A Full Moon brings to  fruition the energy set at the previous New Moon, which was a continuation of the strange morphing energy field that has had so many of us shaking our heads in total bewilderment. That  energy is dissolving and obscuring reality (like how it disappeared my blog post) -  a bit like Mercury retrograde, only weirder. Add some very volatile and unstable elements and this Full Moon could be another trigger point for potentially unsettling events.

Because the opposition of Sun and Moon creates a polarized see-saw of energies moving between conscious(Sun) and unconscious (Moon), and because the Moon rules our emotions ... people can be very moody and even a little crazy.  This can also show up as  tension in  relationships (self and other), or manifest in the area of our chart that the Sun or Moon cross over (see top tab re houses) .

This Full Moon  is at 25 degrees Aquarius, with the Sun at the same degree in Leo, and if you have personal planets at those degrees you will definitely feel this one.

Please don't get your knickers on a twist! (Ive always wanted to say that!)  We've got through worse and we can get through this. And there is some highly creative energy here that has great potential. What is  unnerving to some is exciting to others, depending on your temperament.  All I can say at this point is that although nothing is certain right now and  things continue to  change and morph at an alarming rate, there is light at the end of the tunnel. (lets just hope it is not from an oncoming train!)

 Here's the thing: The unstable energy  of Mars in tension with Uranus/Eris  (awakener and disrupter, together in the sign of the warrior) - becomes highly volatile and potentially violent. Last month when Mars activated this disruptive combo from a different angle, we had a spate of global violence that left us  shaking in our boots. Hopefully that wont happen again, but just in case I suggest you keep your head down and walk away from any potential conflict.

Mars is also  bumping into Saturn (blockage) and being frustrated by Neptune (weakens Mars) at the same time. Without room to move forward (Mars is about action)  our aggressive energy can get pushed sideways ... straight into the arms and craziness of Uranus Eris. This combo is rebellious, reactive and highly disruptive (think  Donald Trump)  He's certainly not the only political wild card at play right now... just maybe the most bizarre one; watching world politics right now is like watching a car accident in slow motion.

A combustion engine provides a good metaphor for this pressurized environment.  Small explosions go off in each chamber which drive the pistons up and down, which then turn the cranks that move the wheels. Excuse my very simplistic explanation... but the point is  that if we can harness the power and use the combustion for forward movement, we can actually achieve something.

The thing is, on top of everything, right now its as if we are driving through an intense thunder storm. Its dark and rainy and hard to see and the bright flashes of lighting and loud bangs of thunder are getting on our nerves.  It will take some ingenuity and a lot of focus to stay conscious at the wheel; luckily, if we are tired and weary and tempted to drift off to sleep, the thunder and lightning will at least jar us enough to help us stay awake.

Those who can stay  focused, yet remain flexible and creative enough to move with the energy instead of resisting it, could experience some kind of breakthrough.

Aquarius is all about thinking outside the box. It is quirky and rebellious and prone to mad genius type of behaviour. It also rules groups and the collective mind, showing some possible conceptual or societal shift in the works. I'm not suggesting  there will be  a miracle and that world peace will suddenly arrive (one can only hope),  yet all change, and every journey does begin with one step.

Lets just make sure that next step isn't off the side of a cliff!

Happy Full Moon
