Full Moon Lunar Eclipse
We have a busy week in the heavens culminating in a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Friday at 12:05 PM PDT at 24.12° Pisces. My favorite simile for a Lunar Eclipse is having one’s head plunged under water until you think you are on the brink of death, and then suddenly resurfacing into a new life. This one is in Pisces/Virgo the axis of the intuitive/analytical. Do we follow our spiritual compass or our moral one? This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is exacerbated by a square from Mars in Sagittarius to both the Sun and the Moon. And by a conjunction of Chiron to the Moon and an opposition of Chiron to the Sun. Mars is volatile, argumentative, and impetuous. Chiron offers a chance to heal old wounds, but can also personalize issues and increase reactiveness. A week to take deep breaths, meditate, write, or spend time with your therapist. With an eclipse nature’s light is suddenly withdrawn and we experience the uncertainty always inherent in life.
The rest of the Week
Today Venus squared off with Pluto at 12:47 AM. You may have dreamed of jealousy and overwhelming passion. Tomorrow Mercury squares Mars, (acrimonious disputes) at 11:58 AM, and then heads into its Inferior Conjunction with the Sun at 4:40 PM. With Mercury in Virgo it’s a good time to clean up your work and health habits. The Sun squares Mars on Tuesday at 1:39 PM, a foretaste of the longer influence of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. Sun/Mars is aggressive and restless. Thursday the Sun opposes Chiron at 1:27 AM and Mars squares Chiron at 8:54 PM. And finally on Saturday, after all of the week’s strife, Mars trines Uranus at 12:04 AM thus fueling us with an extraordinary power and enthusiasm to overcome obstacles. Thank goodness, because we are going to need it.
We will experience several long and difficult Void Moon periods this week beginning with the Capricorn Void Moon on Monday from 3:00 AM until the Moon enters Aquarius at 2:28 PM that afternoon. Void Capricorn Moon is not a great start to the work week. It is best spent reviewing your work goals. Wednesday the Aquarius Moon goes Void at 8:31 AM until entering Pisces at 7:23 PM. Aquarius Void Moon is useful for connecting socially. Take care this week!
