Aries Full Moon ~ War and Peace!
Saturday’s Full Moon in Aries is an epic cosmic event, as it joins earthquake planet Uranus, in direct conflict with both warrior planet Mars, and transformational Pluto in Capricorn. This intense planetary combination portends to be both heated and disruptive!
Batten down the hatches…On an environmental level, for example, here in Seattle we’re on the cusp of a major storm, with hurricane force winds and rain. And of course, East Coasters have been in the thick of this disruptive weather pattern for over a week. Nothing like planetary conflicts to throw everything out of balance, including nature.
On a political level, the political S-Storm around the presidential debates/election is another example of how this planetary conflict is playing out. There is a breaking down of the old-guard and structures, putting many into a tail-spin, not knowing where to turn. Uranus in Aries indicates revolution, directly challenging the Capricorn patriarchal energies of old. Unfortunately opening the door to anger and fear.
Leave it to Capricorn First Lady Michelle Obama to shine a bright and welcome light to the disarray, reminding us about integrity, dignity and what’s really important. Much is breaking apart (or free), but there is also the great potential to come together, and rise to a new level. The currently planetary alignments, although chaotic, offer a fresh air from old stagnant ways of being. Being open to change is the name of the game now!
Jupiter and Mercury in Libra also weigh into this event, although not as dramatically as other planets, but with enough oomph to add some good will and benevolent light. Libra is the sign of peace and balance and reminds us that at the end of the day, it’s all about our relationships and finding harmony within a collective whole.
In this epic novel of life, we are creating our future story now, and we all have a choice—love or hate? Peace or War?
Happy Illuminations. Stay grounded, stay true, and don’t forget to vote!
