The snake slips through your fingers undulating in a backward dance, slithering up your sleeve and into your heart. The poison is released – intoxicating the future with fated, and malleable longings. The sweetness of the past caresses your best intentions testing your resolve. Dreams materialize out of dreams. Wishful thinking wants to gain favours. Lucidly inebriated on visions – desire is a river that flows forth. Nature is a cruel and beautiful mistress that gives herself freely to the dance while her old forms fertilize the soil as an offering to potentiality. Love is the rapture encircling your Soul as your body seeks the edge of the grove.
FULL MOON IN VIRGO: SHAPESHIFTING
Monday opens with a Full Moon in Virgo which is exact at 13:48 EST. The Full Moon in Virgo highlights a dichotomy between process and inspiration, between the material and the ephemeral. The Sun conjoins Neptune in Pisces at the time of the Full Moon diffusing solar light, and rationality. The Moon in Virgo tries to create a practical application for all the intangible ideas floating around. You might be in the process of crafting a proper container for an idea or a vision. However with the mutable season in full swing we still have to contend with destabilizing factors. The Full Moon in Virgo can be anxiety inducing especially if you stare at the whole instead of the parts. Satisfaction will come from working on one thing at a time without letting your ”to-do list” overwhelm you. The Full Moon in Virgo compartmentalizes while the Sun and Neptune in Pisces blurs the lines. The more you try to grasp, the more constricting it will feel. Be present with your process and accept that even though there is still a lot of work to be done, you are progressing at your own rhythm. Mercury stations direct in Aquarius late Monday night, and whatever has been on hold will start to gain momentum in the next few weeks.
MOON IN LIBRA: MAGNETIZING
Things will calm down considerably after the swell of the Full Moon in Virgo. The Moon enters Libra at 6:04am EST Tuesday morning – ruled by a powerful Venus currently in Taurus. Venus also sextile the Nodes of the Moon to begin the week highlighting our desire nature and where it is taking us. The Sun in Pisces sextile its ruler Jupiter currently in Capricorn giving us faith that some sort of structures will be there to support us. Even though the Full Moon in Virgo on Monday illuminates complicated logistics, we are compelled to move forward confidently.
MOON IN SCORPIO: TRUE vs HIDDEN MOTIVES
The Moon enters Scorpio Thursday morning and will travel here until Saturday. Mars currently in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces and rules over the Moon in Scorpio; we move deeper into our desire nature which takes us to the roots of our ambitions and beyond. Intuition is highlighted until Friday, and we could feel guided by some sort of mystical ideal. There is a need to move beyond superficiality, and seek transcending experiences that transform us, and our reality. With so many planets currently transiting in the Earth element, we are looking for tangible ways to transform the structures in our lives. We want our material condition to reflect our ideals.
MOON IN SAGITTARIUS: AMBITIOUS VISION
The Moon enters Sagittarius Saturday morning ruled by Jupiter in Capricorn. Since Jupiter is currently sitting between Mars and Pluto, themes of ambition and power will continue to be highlighted all weekend. The Sun in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn Sunday emphasizes shifting structures. There could be a powerful urge to succeed at this time and the ability to do so without too much opposing tensions. It’s a powerful week for strategic manoeuvring.
”Come into the garden, Maud,
For the black bat, Night, has flown,
Come into the garden, Maud,
I am here at the gate alone;
And the woodbine spices are wafted abroad,
And the musk of the roses blown.”
