You probably knew at the time of the new moon something was up. Your heart or your gut started to whisper to you. Maybe the message was garbled because Mercury was still in aspect to Neptune in Pisces. Maybe you felt a bit unsettled and wanted evidence to make a decision, but the more you tried to think it through, the less things made sense. If you reached for fantasy these last few weeks to buoy you up when you were feeling uneasy, be prepared for a rapid illumination that shakes you to the core. If you have been tuning in to your heart’s desire this sudden clarity only confirms what you knew all along.
This full moon in Libra completes a loose cardinal cross. Mercury/sun/venus is in Aries lighting the desire for the new. The South node, Pluto and Saturn are conjunct in Capricorn reminding you of the weighty commitments you hold in your physical reality. And the North node is in cancer calling you to move forward to your heart’s desire.
This is an alarm sounding to wake us up to a new level of consciousness about the impact of our actions. If we are not honouring our intuition and our heart’s happiness we cannot possibly be of service to others. if we refuse to acknowledge the needs of those we come in contact with and think only of ourselves we also cannot possibly be of service to others. The initial full moon in Libra gives us new insight as to our own imbalance. Maybe we see how we have betrayed ourselves or others by avoiding the deepest feelings within. If we want to feel good about our heart, our commitments, and our actions, we need to maintain this balance with care and compassion. The moon’s movement into Scorpio gives us the way forward, trining that North node in cancer. In order to be more balanced for others we have to be willing to go within to create inner union. If you have been avoiding doing some shadow work, this aspect will give you the courage, tools, and optimism to finally face it.
