At the Bendings – An evolutionary crossroad that confronts us with challenges, and unpredictable changes. The need for progress, innovation and renewal leads to autonomy, breaks but also unexpected or exciting encounters with others. The new can bring luck, surprising revelations, dilemmas and awareness in the field of our values, love and ties to others.
The Full Moon in the Taurus / Scorpio axis and the 01 degree of the signs is quite extarordinary. It is engaging with Uranus, the planet of sudden change, progress and awakening, Venus’s retrograde motion in Scorpio as it is approaching the inferior conjunction, while activating the midpoint between eclipses, (Sun and Moon squaring the Lunar Nodes – Moon Wobble 1). Imbalance is to be anticipated on a geopolitical level, our own organic system, emotional state, as well as in relationships to others, creations and money. We are at a critical and important evolutionary crossroad that illuminates the need to stabilise, shape and crystallise themes (Fixed Grand Cross), and feed us with energy and intensity while calling on us to reconcile seemingly conflicting forces. When a system becomes destabilised or disrupted, it holds potentiality for new shapes, patterns and formations. As such this cosmic configuration provides momentum towards changes in our attitude towards attachments and values, and incorporates opportunities through a curious synchronicity and auspicious timing that may turn in our favour (Moon in exaltation and triplicity in conjunction with Uranus). This becomes more relevant with things of the past. It may emphasise that we need to change the way we appreciate and value things that do not allow us to move on through controlling attitudes, dependency patterns, relationships and ties with others. We are all witnesses of a shift and the change affecting our lives, sustaining a living and in our environment (earth). There is a need to re-evaluate and re-assess our self worth, as well the value of all things we hold dear. Questions such as should I stay or should I go, or where do I come from and where I’m heading characterise the polarised connection between what we own and what we share, through the canvas of values (material and spiritual), that integrates issues of credibility, integrity and individuality through the Nodal axis in Leo / Aquarius). Unexpected circumstances and developments surprise us, may upset our daily routines or renew us. The need to clarify imbalances, to innovate, try something different in love, our creations and possessions is obvious, but compelled to act on fixations and stubbornness , maybe risk prone and have long term or irreversible consequences. Naturally, destabilisation can be voluntary, be stirred by events, or others, so it is important to acknowledge we are still going through a re-evaluation process and not be too hasty in our commitments. The polarising dimension of the Full Moon squaring the Lunar Nodes (fixed grand cross) may require managing multiple levels and directions that can temporarily surprise us, upset us or push us to realise that eventually changing our attitude towards things may promote deeper and more meaningful connections. Standing still for a while, embracing change, and observe the forces coming from different directions maybe a way to deal with these energies. It is a time that brings revelations, that can revive the value of our creations, skills, relationships, that we either have abandoned or left pending. This allows us to renew the contract with ourselves but also to re-assess our self-worth. Contacts with others will act as triggers and reminders or things and creations we may have forgotten about, or where left at a dormant state in our consciousness will be illuminated by circumstantial occurrences.
