Full moons are times of completion so take time to honor what you have and practice offering gratitude, while releasing that which no longer serves you. This full moon is conjunct Pluto so this intensifies the theme of release and transformation. In addition, this is a Super Moon and the aspects are plentiful! The aspects generally are between 17-25 degrees, with 21 degrees being the most potent. Look to your chart to see where this is impacting you the most.
The Capricorn full moon is ruled by Saturn, which is in intimacy with this moon, sitting nearby at 24 Aquarius moving retrograde. Capricorn is the sign of Divine Power, and the archetype is the Executive Director. This is the area of your chart where you can tap into your personal power, provided you are connected with the Divine. Saturn is the Inner Guru- this is where we overcome our self-placed restrictions and step into our authority. So these are the themes we are looking at with this lunar event.
Moon in Resource with Karmic Node (Scorpio) and Juno/Astraea/Neptune (Pisces). Resources are aspects that don’t have much tension, so it requires a conscious choice to use this energy. In this case, our emotions, instincts, and personal care are reverberating with our past (Karma in Scorpio) as it relates to transformation, and our committed relationships, our sense of justice (especially relating to the Divine Feminine), and our dreams and illusions (Neptune).
Moon in light bridge with Mercury and Ceres (conjunct the Sun). At this time, our thoughts and communications, along with what we are birthing/nurturing (Ceres),may be in alignment with our outer world, but is it in alignment with our inner most needs? We may be moving back and forth between our outer and inner world until we reach the balance point of this light bridge. Again, Pluto is with the Moon- and most directly in a light bridge with Ceres. This reminds me of the Roman myth where Pluto abducts Ceres’ daughter and takes her to the Underworld against her will and Ceres inflicts famine upon the land until a compromise is reached where Proserpina (also known as Persephone) is allowed to spend half the year with her mother, and the other half with Pluto.
So in regards to Pluto and Ceres, where does a compromise need to be reached in order to move on and end some of your suffering? How can we better balance the needs of our inner self with the needs of our outer world?
Moon/Sun intersection with Chiron. Chiron currently sits at 16 Aries so Mercury (17 Cancer) and the Black Moon/Sirius (14 Cancer) are involved with this intersection. This brings a theme of healing and wholing to this lunar event. With the Black Moon able to get in the mix, she can help shed light on something we don’t typically allow ourselves to see. Aries is the sign of conscious discipline, so this tells me that a practice of keeping our thoughts elevated and useful will be an important part of any healing that needs to occur. Mercury is in Cancer, which is the sign of the Mother and also emotional power. The elevation of our thoughts can help us access our emotional power, and our emotions can help us to see where our thoughts can use elevating. The Moon is on the other side of this stepping stone, also showing us where our consciousness can work with our emotions for release and transformation.
Grand Cross between Moon/Pluto, Sun, Eris and Haumea. Eris is the inner disruptor and is in Aries, and Haumea is a 5D planet in Libra representing birthing the new from within. There may be tension between our inner dialogue and our emotions and personality, and again, conscious discipline is a component here. On the other side is Haumea, offering us some sort of renewal or rebirth if we trust the process and step in the direction we are being guided.
Moon Trine Uranus. The Great Awakener is currently transiting Taurus, where we learn to stay true to our hearts and tap into our innate wisdom. This aspect should allow for an easy flow of insight from our higher self as it relates the themes the Moon is bringing up.
Grand Trine between Sun/Ceres, Karmic Node, and Juno/Astraea/Neptune. This is another easy flow between the Karmic Node and Juno/Astraea/Neptune (remember, the Moon is in resource to these planets). This is more powerful than a resource, however, and can be accessed more easily. How is your past, including old beliefs and patterns, feeding into your relationships and dreams (Juno/Neptune), and how does it impact what you are putting out into the world?
Venus is busy during this lunar event, with a stepping stone to Neptune, manifesting with Saturn, and part of a Finger of God between the Moon/Pluto and the Karmic Node.
Venus is the fulcrum of the Finger of God, meaning Venus is the trigger. The Moon/Pluto and Karma are pointing to your heart! What is your heart telling you?
The stepping stone with Neptune could show us the tension between our heart’s desires and our dreams. Do our dreams accurately reflect what our heart wants? Or are we feeding our illusions, or engaging in escapism?
The manifestation with Saturn is a gift that allows our inner authority to strengthen our heart- we can commit to what we truly desire.
Saturn in T-square with the Nodes. Finally, Saturn is in stepping stones with the Nodes. This is where we can claim our power, let the past inform us (but not restrict or own us), and move forward towards our next evolutionary step.
Hopefully after this wave has finished crashing over you, you can see clearly what is being released and transformed, and what your heart is calling for. Remember to feel it all fully while keeping your thoughts elevated- don’t get sucked into a “story”, or let the limiting beliefs of the past keep you from moving forward at this time.
