Coming to light

Completions, culminations and closures happen around the time of a Full Moon. What started last October, or just two weeks ago, that is coming to a head now? Where have we not been seeing clearly? Or compromised too much, perhaps in a relationship with others, or perhaps with your own boundaries?

This Libra Full Moon is happening at the time of transformation and even destruction of outworn things which builds in momentum throughout this year and into 2020, as indicated by Saturn, the South Node and Pluto all very close together in Capricorn, representing authority and social structures.

The Full Moon is in the very last degree of Libra, with the Sun in the last degree of Aries very close to Uranus, the planet of innovation and surprising developments. This emphasises the culmination energy inherent in every Full Moon and suggests we really need to keep an open mind about how things work out.

On top of that, in their own way, Pluto, Saturn and the South Node of the Moon (Ketu) each represent some aspect of transformation, loss or shedding, and letting go – karmic lessons to get closer to what is ‘real’ for us in this life.

Pluto also speaks to individual freedoms – whether around speech, beliefs, or what we do with our bodies. Who decides these things? The government or the individual? What if the government makes a mistake, or is acting in bad faith? What to do then? Rage, despair, and exasperation can be felt all around us, and this will grow throughout the year.

The configuration around today’s full moon is also triggering the same point where Saturn appeared to stand still at the end of Libra for a long time in late 2012, so for many people, this can be a culmination of events involving relationships, justice or diplomacy that started or were highlighted at that time. Julian Assange would certainly be able to relate to this pattern.

It’s important to recognize that the planets are giving us pointers, not impelling or compelling us to do something. We can’t blame our own mistakes on Mercury being retrograde. Conditions arise, and we make individual choices based on what we think, feel, or believe in the moment. We can’t choose how the Sun will shine from one day to the next, but we can choose to plant seeds or protect our head with a hat, depending on what we want to see in the future.

The next few weeks are a good time for starting new initiatives, especially unique creative projects, and for new relationships to be anchored in durable and supportive energy which can also be positively life-changing. This basically corresponds to the Sun being in Taurus, as of Saturday April 20th, and for the first three weeks of May.

Keep looking up, and enjoy the Sun in Taurus and the Easter Weekend if that’s your thing. I’ll be back with more about the Taurus New Moon in two week’s time.

Much love and sunny light,
