The Dance of Shadow and Light

Both Light and Shadow are the dance of Love. ~ Rumi


I’ll be up at the crack of dawn to watch this Lunar Eclipse as fiery Moon in Aries creates two trines (120 degree angles) to Jupiter in Leo and Mars in Sagittarius. These geometric trines create a beautiful triangle configuration resembling a bow and arrow aiming toward Infinite Potential due to the opposition of Sun/Venus/North Node opposite Moon/Uranus/South Node that pierces through the center of the grand triangle. Its symbol portrays an ominous potential. Let’s examine the meaning of this astrological design.

The Moon will conjunct Uranus an hour before the exact Eclipsed Full Moon. Uranus, planet of revelation, surprise, awakening, and genius, agitates the stagnate waters of emotions, and, like a blender at high speed in a bowl of Jell-O, seeks to cause a bit of chaos for the good cause of much needed change.

As we know, during a Full Moon, the moon opposes the Sun. Therefore, Uranus and the Moon in Aries will oppose Sun and Venus in Libra, illuminating the core issues of emotional freedom and liberation, the values that have shaped our destiny thus far, and the patterns of past attachments. There may be a desire to release the residue of a past relationship or it may very well indicate the possibility of New Love. Depending on where your life has been focused, this Full Moon will magnify your current position and aim you toward new developments and understanding.

Moon trine to Jupiter and Mars brings extra good fortune, somewhat like the hope buried within a treasured phrase of a fortune cookie. Jupiter in Leo trine the Moon bestows faith, optimism and heartfelt joy, while Mars in Sagittarius trine the Moon hails courage, action, and vision.

Throughout the next month we may feel as though we’re prancing amongst stars, however, we will also experience ample opportunity to engage with shadow. An Eclipsed Moon carries within its mystery a fervent call to purify and cleanse the psyche. During the Lunar Eclipse the darkened Moon returns to light with a slow and deliberate glow, and there we witness the power of light; an unwavering truth that light overtakes shadow, always. This is a great gift, however, just as every glistening thing has its own paler version, this Full Moon arrives with its own lack luster lesson for the soul. Let’s examine.

The opposition within the grand trine foretelling goodwill will also create a T square pattern that includes Venus, Pluto, Moon and Uranus. It is fitting to engage with Pluto during a powerful Eclipsed Full Moon because it offers clues to lessons, challenges, and conflicts not yet resolved. These internal blocks are brought into consciousness through the action of emotional release and serve as steps toward maturation. With this configuration we may examine the relationship between power and love, values and instincts, and how we participate with the urge and need for love.

If we are willing, and exceedingly humble, the empowerment of this Full Moon will change lives. It’s the third Lunar Eclipse in a series of four Lunar Eclipses in 2014 and 2015. The final Lunar Eclipse will occur in April of 2015. We are in preparation.

At the end of the year and into 2015, when Saturn moves in the sign of Sagittarius, what is to unfold will become clear. I guarantee it.

The magnificent moment of this Full Moon is upon us now. For the next month, relish in growth, your wishes, and visions, and take heed of the beautiful Sabian Symbol message for this Full Moon.

Full Moon at 16 degrees Aries:
Nature Spirits Are Seen At Work In The Light Of Sunset
Keynote: Attunement to the potency of invisible forces of nature.

Dane Rudhyar writes: “In the light of personal fulfillment (symbol of sunset and wisdom) we may be able to establish a life-giving contact with natural forces. These are active any time growth processes take place. These forces constitute a specific realm of planetary life….When this Sabian Symbol reaches into the consciousness of a person seeking meaning, it should be seen as an invitation to open one’s mind to the possibility of approaching life in a holistic and non-rational, intuitive manner.”

The Call is to ‘become like a little child.’

Behold, the day is here, when we may return to joy and light.
