This is a deeply emotional and transformative time that is now being intensified by the energy of the Full Moon. Every emotional planet is somehow being challenged, bringing all of our relationships to the forefront as reflections for us to “win some or learn some” (Jason Mraz).
“Relationship is surely the mirror in which you discover yourself.”
The Moon is exalted in the sign of Taurus, meaning that it loves to be here. This Full Moon brings gentleness and affection into our relationships. It sparks our desire to be romantic, express creativity, and to slow down and enjoy nature. This is a soothing place to be after the impulsive and fast pace of the Aries Moon. The energy of Taurus can be one of stubbornness and a belief that ‘I’m not stubborn, I’m just right’. If you find yourself thinking this thought, stop and take a deep breath, and listen to the opposing perspective. You might be surprised at what you would have missed, otherwise.
The Sun is in the sign of Scorpio. This is a deeply emotional and passionate sign. Communication is the key to a successful relationship. However, it is difficult for a Scorpion to talk about their feelings. Taurus and Scorpio are both fixed signs, meaning that they are not naturally flexible and they like to keep things the same. With this Full Moon in Taurus and the Sun in Scorpio, one way that would support relationships is to take a walk in nature and allow the flow of communication to unfold naturally.
At this same time, there is a T-Square configuration involving the Sun, Moon and Neptune (shown in red). Neptune is the planet of idealism, dreams, visions, spirituality and possibilities. Because it is in a T-Square with the Sun and Moon, some unexpected conflicts and idealistic differences may come up. Hidden agendas may be revealed, so they can be addressed and possitive choices can made for the highest good of all involved.
This configuration will also show you where you may be out-of-harmony with your ideals and your true Essence. It will show you where you have been too sympathetic, with a tendency to enable rather than empower. Also, watch for a tendency towards ‘victim consciousness’. Take responsibility for your life and choose to live every moment ‘awake’.
The planet Jupiter is in a Trine aspect to the Sun and Saturn. This supports us in expanding our perspectives and applying spiritual wisdom to our lives. It is a powerful time to create structures that are in harmony with our inner knowing.
Jupiter is also sextile to the Moon and Mars. This supports success through taking positive actions to resolve our differences through sensitivity, nurturing and treating others as our family. This will empower everyone involved to realize their greatest potential.
You can maximize your connection with the energy of this Full Moon easily by taking a moment to close your eyes, take in a few deep breaths and open your senses to the beauty of the nature that surrounds us.
In Love & Appreciation,
