DARK MOON is at the end of Aries, having just kissed revolutionary URANUS, on its way into the fire birth sign. Still on fire from this kiss, this MOON OPPOSES SATURN in Libra on its way out of Aries, at 12:35 pm pdt, at which point the MOON heads into the VOID between Aries and Pisces, “wobbly” and unstable, energetically, until it aspects another planet in its new sign. SATURN has been giving us a purge, growth challenge and rebirth in the realm of social interaction and relating. We are given a unique opportunity with this DARK MOON OPPOSITION, to release all of our inauthentic masks, our uncomfortable conformist self. We can release all the ways we’ve chosen to be “inauthentic,” in this life, letting them go to the past, like falling leaves floating off of us, down the river. In this wobbly window of final release, we can let go of every limitation, karmic badness and pain from the past! This Dark Moon point is a kind of final karmic release point, if we choose to use it that way.
This last day of the JUSTICE cycle precedes the HERMIT cycle, which begins tomorrow at the NEW MOON in Taurus. We are at the crossover between two phases of our awakening portal. We are completing the phase of JUSTICE, where we balance masculine and feminine, dark and light, old and young, past and future, and all extremes are brought to balance with all of life, to the best of our ability.
urity, she is concerned about something. Meanwhile, the fiery maiden, Venus in Aries is super inspired about risky new ideas that may threaten all sense of security! New life beckons us to be midwives and midfathers of new forms. We may not feel ready or resourced enough to bring these new forms through. The universe laughs–If we are a plant–we are sprouting through our old cracking vessels, quick get the next larger pot and keep going! Uranus in Aries reminds, don’t be “rootbound,” with old limitation-oriented conditioning, or you might not notice the new iridescent wings being woven on your shoulders while you weren’t looking!
The next lunar cycle, beginning on the NEW MOON in Pisces on Tuesday, February 21, is a New Moon with NEPTUNE. This next cycle is a big giant WAVE of WATER to surf! Prepare for “high water,” and a river that flows swiftly, empowering us if we’re ready, overwhelming us if we’re not. What do you need to do to feel more ready? May today’s grounded Capricorn energy mix with visionary Pisces to give you a perfect recipe to nourish your soul’s purpose and life’s work!
