A FULL MOON occurs on Saturday, January 23, 2016, at 5:46 PM PST.
On Saturday, the Moon is full, when the Aquarius Sun opposes the Leo Moon. The Full Moon is a time of fulfillment that was initiated at the New Moon.
The Leo-Aquarius polarity deals with the balance between all that is personal (Leo) and all that is impersonal (Aquarius). Leo rules the 5th house (the love you give) and Aquarius rules the 11th house (the love you receive). This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between romance and friendship, and how to recognize the difference. This weekend will test relationships for their true worth and this period is a time when being a good judge of character and evaluating relationships is important. If you do have to address a situation that needs completion, be tactful.
The Leo-Aquarius opposition creates a tug of war regarding boundaries. When a Leo says “don’t cross this line”, he or she will honor the boundary and they expect others to do the same. The Aquarius Full Moon will test those boundaries. Leo’s pride does not want to be upstaged and will not be. Are there boundaries in your life that need to be established or reinforced?
People ask me frequently what to with the astrological information I publish, especially Moon cycles. Because the Full Moon is the culmination of the Moon cycle, it is the ideal time to release and let go of unwanted feelings, habits and behavior.
The Moon rules our feelings and subconscious. How does the Full Moon make you feel? What emotions come up for you? If you have significant Leo or Aquarius aspects in your chart, you are prone to the effects of this Full Moon.
If you are so inclined, write on a small piece of paper what you want to release. Throw the paper into a fire and watch it burn. And if you are truly inspired, howl at the Moon.
If you would like to know more about how the Full Moon affects your chart, I invite you to contact me for a personal consultation.
Have a great week
A FIRST QUARTER MOON occurs on Saturday, January 16, 2016, at 3:26 PM PST.
On Saturday evening, a First Quarter Moon occurs, when the Sun in Capricorn forms a square with the Moon in Aries. There is a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled (Mars) to take action. The crisis or “critical choice point” can be tortuous due to the Sun, our conscious mind, now sitting at a 90 degree angle to the Moon, our subconscious. This clash of consciousness is a struggle between thoughts and feelings. When any two planets square each other, there is a loss of perspective which usually creates the wrong decision being made. If you have to make a decision over the weekend, it’s not your conscious or subconscious that will make the right choice. The correct decision will be made by your consciousness. In other words, rise above it and gain a different perspective. Get out of that intersection where the Sun and Moon are clashing; get out of your own way.
Shortly after, we are made aware of how our actions affect those close to us, perhaps through trial and error. Whatever project or initiative we began around the New Moon is now off the ground, and it may face its first obstacles. If you have significant Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn positions in your chart, pay close attention to your decisions this weekend. This is a cardinal sign cross which sets things in motion. The Aries Moon tends to subscribe to ready-fire-aim! Fortunately the Saturn ruled Capricorn Sun, tells us to slow down and think.
If you would like to know more about this square and how it affects you, please contact me for a personal consultation.
