We spark and glow with new promise as the moon becomes Full in Aries tonight. This Moon is also called Kartik Poornima, the Full Moon of the Warrior Kartikeya. We emerge clad in armour for battle or expeditions, resounding with the joy of adventure or the battle cry – exhausted perhaps but triumphant. This moon cycle is all about balancing out the relationships that define our life – and standing strong, proud and victorious in who we are. We’ve fought to get here, we survived Saturn in Scorpio and we’re into new territory. Have you felt the change? The sense of new experience opening before you?
Venus in her own Kingdom Libra brings beauty and balance to our love affairs. The gentle work of Venus in Virgo brings sweet rewards all month. Venus is at her greatest power in Libra and opposing full moon in Aries she keeps the focus on lovely social events, sweet connection with dear ones and a sense of calm and peace in our relationships. Mars is still working hard in Virgo for a few more weeks. Mars helps us bring focus to what we must get done. He directs us to work with focus and steady application.
Saturn in Sagittarius shifts focus from the inner, personal truth to how we connect that with our highest ideals. The searing emotional accounting Saturn in Scorpio did since Nov 2014 to October 2017 is over (yayy!) BUT now Saturn will make us PROVE what we claim to believe. He’ll test those ideas by making them become real – this means we’ll see how flimsy or substantial our highest ideas are and where we need to get to work. Saturn in Sagittarius tests us to be really honest that aim for in our life is worth pursuing. And if Saturn’s reality checking shows that, yes – your goal is noble, useful and worthwhile then he’ll turn to you and test that you are up to the task. You’ll feel the shift most once the Serpent period also active right now is over (all planets between the lunar nodes) but we begin to touch the new, warm, expansive feeling from mid November. Over all this is a much brighter time.
