The moon waxes full on Wednesday, October 24th, 2018 at 10:45 am MDT. At one degree Taurus, the Moon joins Retrograde (Rx) Uranus and opposes the Sun and Rx Venus in Scorpio. Their opposition forms a Fixed Cross with the lunar nodes in Leo and Aquarius.
This cosmic event spotlights what we love and value and urges us to look deeper
at how we attract and express it.
It also brings up the question:
Does what we’re attracting sustain our collective tomorrow?
Uranus is a transpersonal planet with an innovative energy signature from the future; it’s concerned with the collective. In grounded, earthy Taurus, it asks much more of us. No longer content to settle for old, stagnant ways of living, we must stretch into new territory and build what is viable for the future. Think of making updates that benefit the majority.
Changes can come in sudden flashes of insight or in the form of unexpected disruptions.
When Uranus goes retrograde, we’re given the chance to see our reality from a wider perspective. If we’re willing, we can drop into the space between worlds and find ways to embrace changes that benefit the whole of humanity.
Change is inevitable. Our best option is to let go of what is archaic
and no longer serves our evolution, and then to allow the future
to unfold and grace our lives.
Venus is a very personal planet that helps us draw that which we love to us. When retrograde, we are invited to explore and know real love. The kind that lives deep in our hearts and exists beyond the constructs of love that we were taught to believe. If we’re open enough, this period offers a window through which we can begin to see ourselves with absolute love.
The journey to the center is called for in any opposition, and this Full Moon is no exception. We are aiming for the balance of love and power – with a spark of inspiration and help from – and for – our future.
When we take stock of what we love and value and are willing to inspire and implement the changes that we’re shown, we’ll know the infinite, omnipotent, and true nature of love.
We may notice emotional swings and/or a sense of restlessness with this Moon’s energies, especially if there are fixed patterns or habits that we’re working on transforming. Fixed crosses compel us to find ways to release pent-up, stuck emotions. Cultivating a keen sense of self-awareness and expressing ourselves in creative ways can help us move through challenges.
If we can tap into and embrace what our hearts know, we will serve not only ourselves, but others as well, and we’ll flow with the powerful currents of Scorpio and Taurus. Otherwise, we can be tossed about in what feels like a storm.
In the space in-between worlds, in the space in-between ourselves and our fellow sentient beings, in the space in-between breaths and moments, the highest truth of love, in all of its resplendent power and light, waits for our embrace.
A few questions to ponder in the space in-between…under the light of the moon, perhaps.
- Are we nurturing beauty and love? Are we open to receiving the same?
- Are we letting go of what is out of alignment with our sense of peace?
- Does what we’re attracting and/or creating sustain our inner sense of well-being?
- Does what we’re drawing to us create a better, expansive tomorrow?
- How can we experience more heart and less doubt? More hope and less despair?
Here’s to aligning with the flow of love and power in unique ways that bring all of us abundant peace, beauty, joy, and light ~
Blessings, always ~
