“You don’t know if it’s fear or desire” — Bono, So Cruel
We’re leading up to one hot heaven of a Full Moon in Leo — exact at 1:17 AM EST; 6:17 AM UT; 4:17 PM AEST on Jan. 30, 2010. I’m pretty sure we’ll all catch the show where ever we are. With the Moon in Leo and it’s gonna be show-time even during the day time.
No doubt emotions are bubbling and passions run high. Keep some level of calmness and consciousness as you burn through the insecurities. With the Sun and Venus in Aquarius, this could really clear the air. Over the weekend Saturn squares Pluto and the Sun opposes Mars in Leo. So expect to be feeling the energy through the weekend. This is the second Saturn-Pluto square, unfolding a greater process which began November last year.
We can see the first signs of what took seed two weeks ago with the Annular Eclipse and New Moon in Capricorn. Also next week Jupiter in Pisces sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. This is can be hugely evolutionary energy. But for that there will also be a willingness to dissolve the past and be open to the serendipitous opportunity. But again look around us, “this world is changing fast.” [I said this so often in the first round of drafts for the 2010 Horoscopes that I got a “editor’s note” from Niles.]
By the time of the second set of Eclipses mid-year and the final Saturn-Pluto square, this wheel’s turning around. We can see the very real shift’s of what’s unfolding in this moment now, in our lives and globally. With the Moon and Mars in Leo, and Sun in Aquarius — this is about learning to surrender to the truth of the moment. Acknowledging what we feel honestly, in consciousness of a greater truth of the collective which we are each a part of. There is some comfort in recognizing, if we’re all ‘alone,’ we’re all in it together. This is true on a personal level in terms of our friends, lovers and family as well as on the larger scale of our role in society and existence.
For now, it’s back to the drawing board for me. I am busy publishing the 2010 Horoscopes, with a lot of help from my friends — so look for those in your Inbox this weekend. Also I have the Weekly Horoscope column to get through tonight, so I’ll be riding this creative wave well into the moonshine. The Weekly Horoscopes will be up sometime tomorrow. There will be no official Moon report this week – but this blog covers it’s essence. And I look forward to getting back to “normal” next week.
For all my friends and family, which includes all of you who read this blog and who’ve been patient with me being a hermit over the past 6 weeks [both in the real world and cyber world]- thank you and I love you and am grateful for you giving me this space.
I wish you all a passionate and compassionate, loving, living, creative, kind and magical Full Moon,
Here is a previous post from this week as a re-read.
It’s a big week — but I don’t think you need astrology to tell you that. We leading up to the Leo Full Moon on January 30, 2010 at 1:17 AM EST; 6:17 AM UT; 4:17 PM AEST, as Saturn squares Pluto the next day.
First tonight as Venus opposes Mars in Leo, there could be lover’s quarrels, as well as a recognition of awakening passion and desire. Currently Venus and the Sun are in a close conjunction and the Full Moon this week will be conjunct Mars. There could be tension now, but the energy will release after the Full Moon bringing resolution and release to a lot that seems difficult right now.
This is an internal struggle of readjusting boundaries, releasing guilt. We can shift something, but the Venus-Mars aspects with the Full Moon, suggest there are creative solutions to what seems so serious. Mars-Venus contacts highlight creative, financial and relationship situations.
With Mars retrograde in Leo we are being asked to push through the insecurities or look at the source of anger. Look closely at issues surrounding pride, or a bruised ego or fears stand in the way of expression your true feelings. Venus in Aquarius suggests a need to be light-hearted yet honest, rather than disconnect, detach or isolate.
With the planets in air and fire signs, creatively, financially and sexually this is a necessary inflaming of energy, passion and desire, so we realize what truly matters. this can be a passionate release of energy. Sometime it takes a little friction to get the sparks going, for change to happen.
Just be aware of what you truly want to happen in your heart – and work towards that. At any given time we are contributing to either the cycle of creation or destruction in our lives. Both are necessary, but just know which one you are contributing to. Often we end up standing the way of our own happiness and self-sabotaging. Let go of guilt and look closely at any boundaries we feel we “should” not cross.
Any restriction we feel is pointing to a need to push past our own past that holds us from making authentic choices in the present. True to who we are today.
