What a beautiful full moon! Night by night it has been growing, and on Saturday at 6:46 pm (Pacific) the moon peaks full, perfectly in time with sunset.
For the moon to rise just as the sun sets is great timing- be sure to get out and take a look. The full moon is your time of harvest and I wish you the blessings of a fertile field.
The Heart of the Sun
This moon ripens in Leo, the sign associated with the Sun. it may be cold where you are, but this Leo full moon is warm in nature. The moon has no light of its own, and is always reflecting the Light of the Sun. One of Leo’s lessons is about heart – to be brave and follow you own heart; to be big-hearted; to even be vulnerable to love.
I have always loved the days when the Sun is passing through Aquarius because the light has a peculiar glow; whether in the northern or southern hemisphere, there is a special quality to way the sun filters through the trees.
And, Aquarius holds wisdom for the highest expression of Leo. Opposite signs work to balance and correct each other and the Aquarius/Leo axis is one of service founded in love over a desire for recognition. Authenticity is another good key word for Leo; allow this full moon to inspire you to connect authentically.
Timing is Everything
Mercury makes each moment vital right now. Mercury stations, or stands still, at 15/16 degrees Capricorn, the same degree occupied by Pluto this week. The station is like an exclamation point. On January 22nd, Mercury (still retrograde) joined Pluto and again on January 29th Pluto and Mercury form a second union – this time with Mercury direct.
You see it today as adjustments (Mercury) in the financial markets (Pluto). Historically, Mercury and Pluto working together have brought stress to world markets, but take heart, financial astrologer Barbara Koval mentions in her book, ‘Time & Money’, that markets generally crash in the autumn, i.e. Black Monday of October 19, 1987 (Mercury conjunct Pluto on that day!) and September of 2008.
Interestingly, my research did reveal that many market ‘panics’ occurred in January, (1819, 1837 1857), but not market crashes. True to Koval’s words, the crashes have historically been August, September, and October with adjustment periods being January and also May.
You can use the dynamic energy of Mercury and Pluto to connect with your Life Purpose and reenergize your life. Let this amazing full moon inspire your heart as Mercury whispers the messages of your soul mission that is ripening. Reconnect, revitalize, rejuvenate, and resolve to make this your best year ever!
And, this week, as always – let your Light shine.
