Analysis

Just hours after the Sun’s move into the fierce Cardinal sign of Aries, we also welcome the Spring Equinox. A perfect balance of the night and day. You’re about to be thrust into the Astrological New Year. This energy will pack quite the punch, stirring up things that will require our immediate attention. This is another Full Moon that is debuting at zero degrees, yet again another beginning and an end. While Full Moon’s bring completions, zero degrees indicate an opportunity to start over. With centaur Chiron in the mix, it’s incredibly evident that whatever comes up in relation to this Full Moon, we must play an active role in taking responsibility for part in all of this. This may come in a bit of a painful, or unpleasant way. It’s possible we may become much more bluntly (Aries) aware of an Achilles’  heel in our life. 

The Moon will be making a funky inconjunct to Uranus, which has recently moved into the fixed sign of Taurus. It’s becoming increasingly evident that Venus is the star of the show. Venus rules both Taurus as well as Libra. This is setting the stage for some significant lessons in relationships, both with others and ourselves. What value are we putting on our relationships with others? Are we holding on for good, logical reasons, or are we afraid of being alone? Do you and your business partners, your spouses, or financial lenders have your best interests at heart? These are some good questions to be asking yourself at the time of this Full Moon. If you’re sensing something is out of balance, you may want to spend the days following taking action to course correct where there is something out of whack. 

Answers will come to us, but with a bit of delay. It may be days before we really start putting things into action. Mercury is still retrograde in Pisces feeling things out until next week. Some issues still may feel a bit tender, but acknowledgment is the key to any forward motion. Mars in Taurus will be making some earthly trines to Pluto, which helps you stay on track and handle just about any obstacle in your way. Pluto always makes room for transformation, and with trines it’s easier energy to manage. Mars in aspect to Pluto represents some heavy duty shifts that may actually stick. So for those of you wavering on ending jobs, relationships, or other major partnerships be mindful. Your actions have major consequences now. If you are ready to, you have the power to truly, genuinely cut ties with others should you choose to do so. 

Venus Libra’s ruler, will be in quirky Aquarius squaring off with stubborn Mars in Taurus. Both of these fixed signs have issues being flexible and may show you clear as day where you need to learn to avoid conflict but seek resolution, even if that means walking away. Any push back you get now is purely the manifestation of who or what isn’t playing by the rules. This is where you take notes, see where you stand with people, and plan your exit strategy for later in the month. The most challenging aspect will be not fighting back, using manipulative or power play tactics, and instead focusing on shifting YOUR ACTIONS. 

At the end of the day, the events arising from this moon may be explosive and not so pleasant. But It’s happening to encourage PERSONAL GROWTH and maturity. Taking the high road, and choosing to raise our vibrations. By doing so, the universe will rise up to meet you. Assisting your personal growth and development, healing any insecurities should you muster up the courage to say, “no, no thank you, not for me, or this is not enough”.

Hang in there, there’s some beauty in the breakdown. You’re a lot stronger than you think.

What does Mercury Retrograde mean for us astrology nerds? In a nutshell, it means that all the correspondences and symbolic meanings mentioned above that represent Mercury can also act... a little backwards. Travel or business plans may get loused up. Verbal fights or misunderstandings can occur. Contracts can default or money can be spent unwisely. Technology can fail us. All these things changing at once can disrupt every day life, which is not ideal for anyone living a 21st century experience.

September harvest blessings to all! The Pagan sabbat celebration this month is Mabon, which falls on September 22. This is the autumn equinox and harvest festival that has very ripe and abundant “crops” or whatever you had planted as a seedling and have been cultivating throughout 2022. Lammas gave you a taste of the direction, success, and growth you were achieving, and Mabon is maximizing that growth and bringing even greater insights. Feasting, music, ritual, and sharing of resources are all joyful and meaningful ways to give gratitude to the land, to your body, to your support system folks, and to your Guides/Spiritual helpers/Universe/God. Being the autumnal equinox, this means there is equal light and dark on...
