If feeling a bit heavy, during this Full Moon…no Air, take some moments to pause and breath. Issues of security, values vs sharing resources or intimacy maybe prominent. Is our need for intimacy,  deep sharing in relationships and joined resources, supported? Is it being fulfilled? How does this affect our level of security and self-worth?

Mars is in Cancer, representing our survival instinct, passion and desires maybe moody for a while. It is Out of Bounds, so you maybe needing to activate yourself outside the conventional context of life, act outside the box so to speak, on a day to day level. Some new connections can be made that way. It is getting out of your comfort zone, by being intuitive, that can assist in fulfilling your needs. Mars in Cancer finds passion in domesticity, cooking, nature and defends those he loves. It maybe a time to strengthen these areas in a new way or do things differently. Those of you with a Cancer Ascendant or Mars in Cancer, start a new cycle of energy investment.  Moon is in mutual reception with Mars in this Full Moon both in their signs of Fall, so feelings will be activated that’s for sure, and there maybe also a feeling of “lacking resources” or support in an area of life, at least in the way we expect it. It is emotional security that comes to the fore. Feelings and subconscious reactions can be intense and deep too. This is a call to fight for what we need, or to experience deeply buried feelings surfacing. It can feel heavy, but ultimately detoxifying. Self protection or survival anxieties may also become part of  our collective and individual psyches. And perhaps this is the spirit and mood with which people will go to vote in the upcoming European elections. This is a planetary connection of the birthing or purging of something of the past. Doing things differently may generate more fertility and response from others. Venus just met Uranus in Taurus and there may have been an incident that awakened you regarding your values, appreciation of things around you, your relationships, creations, self-worth, money and pleasure. A new Venus-Uranus cycle has just began! It is time to reflect on that, and your attachments. A seed has been planted that relates to your need to awaken the notion of fertility in life, and soon Mars will activate it by sextiling Uranus. Neptune is making a harmonious connection to the Nodes, there is something to be inspired and sensitised about with others. Artistic, musical and spiritual collective endeavours are flowing well. Significant others can become part of your evolution path.  Do not limit your mind. Mercury is passing through some ‘difficult’ territory in late Taurus, and is combust, watch for mental burn out, and fixed thoughts. Take your time, reflect. Prepare for a mental re-birth (superior conjunction) on May 21-22 in Gemini as this lunar cycle draws to a close, that will activate a shift of energy in the beginning of June with the New Moon cycle.

 

This Full Moon may have a more personal feel for you:

If you have personal planets, angular house cusps or points at 27 (+/-3) degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius and Leo, 03 degrees of Taurus, and  01 degree of Cancer, and 18 degrees of Pisces, Cancer and Capricorn. Those of you born at night may benefit greatly from Venus in its domicile until June 9th.

May you all enjoy a wonderful full moon!

What is of value to us and what we ‘own’!

A new lunar cycle has began in the sign of Taurus, which is constructive, but also requires work on self, especially on a psychological level. A new intention is set with every New Moon in the realm of life that corresponds to the relevant house of our natal chart and is expressed through the filter of the sign the Moon and Sun conjoin. Taurus is fixed earth, has to do with our values, the material and sensual part of our lives, and all those things that relate to our self-worth and sustain life. It also emphasizes our attitudes towards what we enjoy and love. Taurus is about fertility, the shaping of our tangible world experienced through our senses. We can make a new beginning on how we focus on all those things, and we become aware of what really reflects true value in our lives. This often echoes possessions, and sense of ownership, on an individual and collective level. The New Moon is conjunct fixed star Menkar in the constellation of Cetus, which unlocks an added message of this intention relative to the collective unconscious. Ptolemy observes a Saturnian influence in relation to this star, while B. Brady refers to the symbolism of this star “as these unconscious forces in the human collective” and notes “that it’s placement in a chart can be difficult” but potentially revealing to us. She also notes that “the positive use would manifest as the ability to achieve something for the collective; the negative use… could be that you are the victim of the collective. However, by recognising your sensitivity to the collective, you can work with your dreams…to gain greater understanding of this connection”1.  It is perhaps an interesting and potent message for those involved in politics, in reference to the upcoming European elections. However, the message may also concern our creative talents, values, skills and the way they are communicated, exploited and assessed.  

Sun in Taurus says, I honour my values, and Moon in Taurus says I feel good when I enjoy with my senses, I respond to what I love and I own. With Uranus in Taurus, we are urged to establish a new connection with what we love and possess, and to make changes in our material worlds that will bring progress. Something has already began, and now we will take a step forward in this direction. Continue reading

Νέα Σελήνη στις 14 μοίρες Ταύρου και 10’

Τι πραγματικά αξίζει για μας και τι μας ‘ανήκει’! 

Ένας νέος σεληνιακός κύκλος ξεκίνησε σήμερα στο ζώδιο του Ταύρου, με ιδιαίτερα εποικοδομητικό χαρακτήρα, που απαιτεί όμως και προσωπική δουλειά κυρίως σε ψυχολογικό επίπεδο. Μια νέα πρόθεση ενεργοποιείται με κάθε νέο κύκλο της Σελήνης στον τομέα της ζωής που αντιστοιχεί στον γενέθλιο οίκο του ατομικού μας χάρτη, και εκφράζεται μέσα από το φίλτρο του ζωδίου στο οποίο βρίσκεται η Σελήνη και ο Ήλιος. Ο Ταύρος είναι η σταθερή Γη, που εκφράζει τις αξίες, το υλικό και αισθησιακό κομμάτι της ζωής μας, και μας τροφοδοτεί με αυταξία, όπως και τονίζει την σχέση μας με όσα απολαμβάνουμε και μας αρέσουν. Εδώ είναι η περιοχή της γονιμότητας, αλλά και της μορφοποίησης, του απτού μας κόσμου που βιώνουμε μέσα από τις αισθήσεις μας. Η πρόθεση είναι να εστιάσουμε σε όλα αυτά, και να συνειδητοποιήσουμε τι εκφράζει ουσιαστικά το αξιακό περιεχόμενο της ζωής μας, τι μας ανήκει, τι κατέχουμε. Η Νέα Σελήνη γίνεται σε σύνοδο με τον απλανή Menkar στον αστερισμό του Κήτους, που ξεκλειδώνει την προέκταση της πρόθεσης σε σχέση με το συλλογικό ασυνείδητο. Ο Πτολεμαίος παρατηρεί την Κρόνια επίδραση του απλανούς, ενώ η B. Brady επικεντρώνει την ερμηνεία του συμβολισμού σε όλες αυτές τις ασυνείδητες δυνάμεις του συλλογικού που είναι δύσκολες και σκοτεινές, αλλά εν δυνάμει μας αποκαλύπτουν. Σημειώνει πως η θετική του διάσταση βρίσκεται στο «να κατακτήσουμε κάτι για τους πολλούς, ενώ η αρνητική στο να θυματοποιηθούμε στο συλλογικό τοπίο. Παρ’ όλα αυτά αναγνωρίζοντας την ευαισθησία μας ως προς το συλλογικό δουλεύουμε με τα όνειρα μας ώστε να κατανοήσουμε περισσότερα για αυτή μας την σύνδεση»1.  Είναι ίσως ένα ενδιαφέρον και καίριο μήνυμα για όσους πολιτεύονται, μιας και οι επικείμενες εκλογές δεν αφορούν μόνον την χώρα μας, αλλά και συνολικά την Ευρώπη.  Το μήνυμα όμως αφορά και τις πάσης φύσεως δημιουργικές μας ικανότητες, ταλέντα, αξίες, δεξιότητες και τον τρόπο που αυτά επικοινωνούνται, αξιοποιούνται και αξιολογούνται.  

Ο Ήλιος στον Ταύρο λέει είμαι αυτό που ‘έχω’, τιμώ τις αξίες μου, και η Σελήνη στον Ταύρο λέει νοιώθω καλά όταν απολαμβάνω με τις αισθήσεις μου, ανταποκρίνομαι σε ότι ‘αγαπώ’ και ‘κατέχω’. Με τον Ουρανό στον Ταύρο παρακινούμαστε να ασχοληθούμε με αυτά που αγαπάμε και κατέχουμε, και να κάνουμε αλλαγές στην ζωή μας, που θα μας δώσουν μια προοπτική στο μέλλον, και για μας και για τους άλλους. Κάτι έχει ήδη ξεκινήσει, και τώρα θα κάνουμε ένα βήμα εξέλιξής του προς αυτήν την κατεύθυνση. Continue reading
