As Mars will activate the Saturn-Pluto synod degree March 20-21, the message becomes clear…

Saturn conjunct Pluto:

“the blizzard of the world, has crossed the threshold, and it’s overturned the order of the soul”…”love’s the only engine of survival” Leonard Cohen.

It was Kronos who castrated his father and caused the birth of Aphrodite – values, creation, pleasure, love, beauty. Venus is in Aquarius, a Venus that is speaking of both its connection with Saturn and Uranus. This is an archetypal Venus in terms of reminding us its mythological origin. As Saturn meets Pluto for another round, it is pertinent to open up to the depths of our hearts and deepest desires and become conscious of our world beyond the superficial order of things. A seed moment when this order and structure intents to be transformed and experience a re-birthing, so as to aid at reinforcing ideologies, belief systems, our philosophy of life (Mars in Sagittarius 9H). Evolution is about tending to the essential roots of our beeingness, continuity of life and what constitutes our sense of belonging North Node in Cancer (4H), and the cultivation of a more authentic way of life, Moon in Leo. Chiron at 01 Aries squaring the Nodal axis and trining Mars, is speaking about alternative models of leadership, the awareness of the notion of heroes in our world, the sacred warrior principle, and the need to be courageous and bold about who we are in defence of our very own vital space, desires and spirit of creation. Our wounds and feelings of alienation, our very own sense of identity become the vehicle of healing for others, through our passions, desires and gifts. It is a time to transform structures and work on building bridges between worlds. (The cycle that began in 1982 and is now ending and restarting in 2020.)

Responding to stimuli and information and giving them meaning. The essence of constructive dialogue. Understanding is all about the right questions. How mature we are in communicating with others, and how it affects our relationships.

 

A Full Moon with lessons about realism, in how we respond to and translate information and how it shapes the context of our relationships. Is it the mind that develops its own conclusions, or the capacity to converse and exchange knowledge and information within specific contexts and practical parameters? How do we make sense of the information and what conclusions do we make? The Gemini/Sagittarius polarity is the axis of perception, learning, understanding, and in general shapes all systems and structures that have to do with experiential development that belongs to the mental plane. The need to make some adjustments to the plans or projects we wish to implement will be of concern to us. Movement, travel, knowledge, learning, education, ideology and dogma, the realms of the familiar and unfamiliar, legal issues, information management and communication with important others that are seeking to clarify in a conclusive manner, are themes that this Full Moon negotiates.

How much we believe or understand the ideas, stimuli and data we receive and how we will decide and draw conclusions from them are issues that will be of concern to us in the next two weeks.

In preparation of a plan that is becoming a reality; expectations and dreams reveal their realistic dimension.

Do you trust your heart and how willing are you to do something about it?

How do we begin to lay the groundwork in order to integrate a mission, plan or vision into our reality and clarify its viability. Truth, trust, faith and the risks we are willing to take as we are moving into a new order of things.

The New Moon in Sagittarius invites us to look at the big picture, to think about the future, to clarify the prospect of a new direction in order to finally bring closure to a chapter of experience and enter a new one. The intentions we will set forth this lunar month will lead to the fermentation, completion and closure of longer cycles, and will also lay the foundations for a meaningful shift of priorities, perception of our world and interests that will likely take the whole of 2020 until they shape into form.

In the lunar cycle that begins today, we are called upon to become conscious of the notion of risk, trust, faith, promise and the adjustments we need to make in our lives in order to support conditions that have developed in their practical application in order to give us more freedom of movement in the future and strengthen our supports on the material level of life. This entails new ventures or spiritual and creative pursuits. This process includes clarifications and disengagement from situations and relationships, changes and/or adjustments to new conditions that are either our own creation or have been triggered by external factors and events. Sagittarius is a sign that requires us to conceptualise, philosophise and find meaning, in other words make sense of what we will take with us in the new season ahead (Capricorn). We will be saying farewell to a period of expectation and development of a shift in direction and moving into a period  where things are tested for their viability within more organized frameworks and rules. The ruler of New Moon, Jupiter in the last degree of Sagittarius latest states that intentions are becoming critical and fuelled with urgency for completion or closure. Since November 2018, Jupiter in Sagittarius has enabled opportunities for growth and/or improvement in some area of ​​our lives, and as a significator for knowledge, beliefs legal issues, justice, truth, teaching, hospitality, travel, publishing, spirituality, ethics, philosophy, higher education, religion, church may have brought certain of these aspects to our collective or personal awareness. Jupiter in the last degree of the sign will probably bring closure with a sense of urgency but it also speaks of something that was being prepared and is now going to ‘bloom’, with more visibility or assume a more formal and public presence (29 Sagittarius – 00 Capricorn). The Luminaries are in conjunction with the asteroid Pallas Athena so wisdom, creative intelligence, the need to become strategic, or to recognise concepts and patterns and motifs and integrate them into a larger picture blends with the intentions we are going to set forth. Athena’s wisdom and strategic gifts  -who was born out of Zeus’s head- in her meeting with the Sun and the Moon support decisions, talents, and intuition. It also highlights the wisdom we seek, project or receive in our contacts with the others. The separating waning quincunx aspect of the Luminaries with Uranus in Taurus, indicates that we enter this cycle under the influence of perhaps sudden or unforeseen disruptions, detachment and changes in our lives, habits and daily lives that either have been imposed upon us or put an emphasis on the need to adapt and accept new circumstances. This configuration brought closure aligned for the purpose of awakening and need to make progress. The potential discovery of new talents, as well as the need to get out of our comfort zone, renew an area of life is prominent as new intentions and decisions promote and require a shift in direction. (Check the house that Uranus is transiting in your natal chart to get clues about which area of ​​life these changes have been imposed or triggered and any planets or points at 03-04 degrees Taurus).

Balance Exercises – Equality, Love, Art, Harmony

In a spirit of change we make adjustments and focus on making our lives more harmonious, finding new balances in love and relationships with others.

The New Moon in Libra activates a new intention in creating bridges, by ‘marrying’ elements that will contribute to a more harmonious engagement with the environment of life. Naturally, the field of relationships, or contracts with others, how and what we share, as well as the sense of fairness and equality are emphasised in personal and collective realms. Libra, ruled by Venus, is the exaltation of Saturn, and in this cycle we may experience an air of formality that emerges through the social context of life, whether it concerns values, relationships, partnerships, or art and culture. Libra is the sign that has the power of reconciling opposite forces and operate by promoting commitments through equal give and take. This emphasises a sense of responsibility, compromise, and a spirit of cooperation with others.

 

The Luminaries separate from an opposition with Chiron that may have presented vulnerabilities and weaknesses regarding  ego and identity, our sense of belonging, and the nurturing  principle in our lives that required healing. Relationships with others, or compromises we needed to make may have triggered a sense of ‘inadequacy’ or past wounds in relation to our vital space or our autonomy.  The applying waxing quincunx aspect (of the nature of Virgo) with Uranus in Taurus speaks of this lunar cycle’s requirement for adjustments to daily life or to changes we wish or need to make with ourselves, and our relationship patterns. This can liberate us or awaken talents, abilities and skills. It is a positive indication for starting something exciting, tackle health problems through alternative therapies, and generally utilise intuition in making adaptive changes in relationships, and their financial or creative dimension. It brings progressive occupations into our lives, shows us the need to change habits and routines, promotes solidarity and through assistance by others.

 

The ruler of this New Moon in Libra, Venus in the sign of her domicile, emphasises equality, love, aesthetics, relationships, well-being, love, art, social life, and motivates responses, emotions and self-will to share more as we are making important beginnings. The Moon in Libra needs relationships, and harmonises through social etiquette, values, and artistic expression. It is responding to equality, sense of fairness, and is destabilised by conflicts. So, any disharmony will be strongly felt. Continue reading
