Square to Neptune ó overactive imagination or creative mystical imagination?

 

 

This Full Moon on 5/17 was square to Neptune ♆, so although something comes to light once the Moon reaches fullness (lighting up the night - lighting up that which was previously dark), the square to Neptune may have added confusion or an overactive imagination (or creative mystical imagination, on the higher side) into the mix, only to be seen more clearly now, a day or two after the Full Moon.

Full Moon in Scorpio ♏

 

 

 Full Moon in Scorpio ♏ (today, 5/17/2011 at 7:09am EDT at 26 ♏13). The Full Moon is the crescendo of the lunar cycle and represents things coming to fruition. The waxing Moon (from new to full) is the ideal time to initiate beginnings. It has been known since ancient times to be the best time to plant above ground crops, as the energy is building and supportive of growth. The waning moon (from full to new) is the best time to make adjustments and release.


To inquire deeper into what this Full Moon in Scorpio means for you, look to see where you have Scorpio ♏ in your chart and think back to the beginning of November 2010, when we had the New Moon in Scorpio. Perhaps there was a new beginning of some sort in the area of life represented in your chart where you have Scorpio, and now you can see clearly what has come to light and grown forth in that same area.Read more...

Enter the peace of Taurus ♉

 

 

4 planets have moved from fiery fast acting Aries ♈ to calm slow but steady Taurus ♉. How to align with all this Taurus energy in the ether? By tuning into the now experience of the body, the mind begins to quiet, and we take notice more profoundly the warmth of the sun, taste of the food, magical sound of the voice... By giving ourselves the time to fully know the world through our senses, we enter the peace of Taurus.

Today could be a magical day!

 

 

There is a potential for love, beauty, abundance, and joy to vibrantly flow - everywhere. Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter gather at 25º Aries. The Sabian Symbol for this special meeting: “A double promise is revealed by some suggestive event of both immediate or literal and sentimental significance.” ...The word ‘promise’ is associated with divine assurance of one’s ultimate wholeness.

Spread the word of love!

 

 

Think, speak, remember, share and connect with love. For a couple weeks light-footed Mercury ☿ (Hermes), the Messenger god, and beautiful Venus ♀ (Aphrodite), goddess of love, are extra close and twice they merge. First on 5/9 in Aries ♈ - encouraging new, bold, and spirited expressions. Then on 5/16 in Taurus ♉ - inspiring us to maintain serenity, grounded-ness, and beauty in relationships.

What a fitting Motherís Day!

 

 

 The Moon, always strongly affecting our mood, and symbolic of the inner Feminine, is in intimate Cancer ♋, archetype of the Great Mother. It is a joy for the Mother goddess to channel new life, nurture, & protect. She knows instinctively how to care for & grow the small & vulnerable. Even in our inevitable human-ness the mother in each of us embodies selfless service & unconditional love.


The glyph for Cancer ♋ used to be a spiral, a major archetypal symbol of the womb-center that expands with new life developing, and a symbol for development in general. It is seen in nature.

New Moon in Taurus ♉

 

 

The Sabian symbol for today’s New Moon in Taurus ♉: “A man very cheerful in his working clothes is handling a mountain of baggage the best he can.”. The baggage we have may be heavy, or the mountain ahead daunting, but the New Moon is a great time to start with a fresh intention, energy, and inspiration to handle it - the best we can, and even with cheerfulness.

“Among the many things which the aspirant needs to cultivate there are few which are as important as cheerfulness, enthusiasm and equipoise, and these are rendered impossible unless he succeeds in cutting out worry from his life.” ~Meher Baba

Excitement, boldness, and strong gut feelings abound!

 

 

The potential for dynamism and liveliness is high today. Mars ♂, the archetype of going after what you want with zeal and confidence, is amplified by Jupiter’s ♃ expansiveness and the Moon’s ☽ sensitive emotional receptors. Excitement, boldness, and strong gut feelings abound as the Moon, Mars, and Jupiter join in 23º Aries.

To consciously honor Saturn...

 

 

Faithfully persisting towards goals, learning step-by-step, and overcoming challenges or perceived blockages may yield especially fruitful results today as Venus opposes Saturn (♀☍♄). By consciously honoring Saturn with a realistic, responsible attitude, we lay foundations to support the important relationships or creative projects that are of true value to us, thereby creating opportunities for love & beauty to blossom.

Mercury “re-born” brings new messages...

 

 

During Mercury Retrograde, Mercury appears to move backwards. It also fades out of visibility in the night sky. As Mercury stations direct, it reappears in the morning sky.

“The Egyptians saw the appearance of a Morning Star as a God rising from the UnderWorld - the realm of the Dead, and thus being re-born... As Mercury Stations direct [in Aries], we are receiving personal messages about how we need to be re-born into the Warrior archetype and how to communicate, move and problem solve like a Warrior... It is not so much about conquering anything or anyone else as much as conquering your own fears or feelings of inadequacy or inability.” ~Gary Caton
