So we all know that both full moons and lunar eclipses bring on completion of a cycle. While a new moon and solar eclipse launch a new cycle, often times destroying the old one. And I already mentioned in previous posts that 2017 is a Leo-Aquarius year, and we also toss in Capricorn due to Cardinal T-Crosses and Saturn moving into Capricorn at the year's end.
So that's a busy Lunar Eclipse Moon! And then we see a second Golden Triangle with the Aquarius Sun, Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries which opposes the Golden Triangle with the Leo Moon, Jupiter in Libra and Saturn in Sagittarius (which plays the role of the anchor since it appears in both Golden Triangles).
This chart is all over the place and it is filled with contradictions. I really feel like pulling my hair out at this point because I don't exactly get paid the big bucks to interpret these moon charts. And they only get more complicated each time.
So first let's look at the polarity with the Aquarius Sun and the Leo Full Moon. Here we have the collective versus the individual. Either way, we are looking at each of us showing up as our authentic self. Those of us who usually grab the spotlight feel uncomfortable making room for a crowd. And those of us who shy away from the spotlight find ourselves making speeches that stir up the masses. We want to repress and deny our egos because they are no longer socially acceptable.
We're not sure whether to lead or follow. We sometimes feel like sheep herded and racing towards the cliff's edge. This reminds me of something my mother used to tell me when I was a teen when I wanted to wear the same clothing as the popular kids. If they jumped off a cliff, she asked, would you jump with them? Well, those weren't her exact words, but you get the point. And the image I have with this chart is lemmings heading towards the cliff and plummeting to their death. It's not pretty.
And I think there is a tendency to take in misinformation and spread it like rabies. This is because the Leo Moon desires drama and lots of it. We witness ego posturing. We witness mega personalities and wish we could just go hide in a cave and contemplate a more peaceful humanity--the one we were taught at a spiritual workshop. But even the spiritual gurus are acting like kings and queens pretending they have our best interests at heart. Maybe they do and maybe they don't.
I see lots of people marching on the streets. Some believe in their causes while others just want to be seen carrying signs on social media. Grassroots movements are everywhere sounding the battle horn because the Cardinal T-Cross is strong as ever with Jupiter asking for social justice and Uranus asking for social justice and Pluto either bringing transformation or totalitarianism.
We find relief in the Grand Fire Trine which boosts our enthusiasm and gives us a playful edge. We can use this energy to manifest a peaceful world or we can use this energy to promote more selfishness at the expense of others. The Yod slows down the powerful Leo Moon by bringing in Chiron in Pisces. This means we need to return to old wounding and accept what we cannot change. And those of us who act rash need the deepest healing. Chiron also asks us to have compassion for ourselves and others, but this isn't easy when the Leo Moon wants us to come first and Jupiter in Libra wants to take everyone to court or to court everyone without focusing on the original wounding.
A yod with a moon in it usually passes by quickly. However, this yod falls in a Lunar Eclipse chart with a lot of transits occurring. And the Mystical Rectangle ties it all together with the moon, Uranus, the sun, and Jupiter. A Mystical Rectangle includes oppositions, trines, and sextiles. And I see that same theme of the grassroots versus the individual coming up.
I'm not going to make any predictions. However, I forecast that February is going to be a very active month. We will feel impatient with that Lunar Eclipse yod. And I think we can either see the glass as half full or half empty. And remember where we place our focus determines the type of life circumstances we manifest. I think February will provide us with surreal situations and a lot of drama. If you don't like drama then you might want to spend time alone or with a quiet group of mature people. Otherwise, it's going to feel like a Madonna fest 24/7. Personally, I'm staying away from the maddening crowd this February.
