Full Moon in Virgo {2018}

 

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

 

On March 8, 2018, we will have a Full Moon at 11° Virgo, a full moon occurs when the Sun is Opposite the Moon.  The 11th degree of Virgo alludes to wealth, relationships, and trickery.  We will examine this Full Moon transit in depth and uncover some mysteries along the way.  The Full Moon in Virgo coincides with the previous Solar Eclipse in Aquarius by being the result of that time of setting intentions.  Pay attention to the things you manifest, every cause has an effect.  The Sun represents who you project yourself to be, The Moon represents how we truly feel, since these two forces are opposed, The Full Moon represents a point to which we must understand this tension to resolve it.  So the things we have tried to avoid and not address comes into full focus during these times.  The goals you set during the Solar Eclipse can be re-examined and fine-tuned during this time as well.  This is a time of harvest.  This Full Moon will challenge us to be our best selves moving forward by shining a light on those not so pleasant aspects of ourselves and giving us the energy to make changes.  Dieting, seeing a mental health professional, detox clinic, or even rehab may be the best thing to do if you find yourself struggling with some inner conflict.  Let us now look at some aspects that support this Full Moon in Virgo.  

 

The Sun will be Conjunct Venus and Neptune in Pisces, creating a mystical guidance system for you.  The Moon will be opposite Neptune in Venus highlighting the ability to perceive things, good or bad.  It is best to speak our truth and be honest, the problem comes with holding things in that you rather say, this creates the most problems in our relationships and affairs.  Finding time to yourself to find out what is truly important to YOU, can also do you some good in easing the inner tension.  The issue of denial is really big and these are things that must be addressed moving forward.  Looking at our patterns and habits, see the ones that are hindering us, and make the necessary changes moving forward.  Sometimes we focus on others so we don’t have to focus on ourselves.  

 

In our shadow watch, we take a look at the Jupiter in Scorpio trine aspect to the Sun, Venus, and Pisces. This may be a time when people will begin to profit off of their pain, find lucrative ways to express themselves or do the necessary work to heal.  Whether it is rehab, seeing a psychologist, or forming a sister/brotherhood where you can be honest.  A reminder that honesty is a sure-fire way to progress over any obstacle, also you may be faced with no other alternative but to be honest. This is a time for expansion and enhancing even if you are doing good, don’t be afraid to strive for better and upgrade.  There is a way we can strive for growth without being greedy, by making sound investments and thinking of the future, this is a good time to prepare for the future.  

 

Peace and contentment are available if we are really in seek of it.  Understanding that everything has a counterbalance of light and dark, our goal is to balance this force moving forward.  Things will start to manifest in our lives now at a fast rate, things we can only dream about now, learning how to prepare for these miracles is the proper mindstate.  Another reminder is that joy comes from the inside, happiness is based on happenstance, so create the happy situations from within, this is a major key.  

 

There is a Mars Square Venus transit we want to pay attention too as well.  We may be seeking things and people that satisfy us and only us, this may or may not be a problem, depending on if you are in a relationship or not.   As you rise in finances and status so does your passions, be mindful of your tendency to be lustful and overindulgent.  There will be challenges in the realms of harmony, a routine is not necessarily harmonious, joy is a major factor to harmony.  So be mindful…. Avoid superficial bonds, strive for mental and emotional connections for these will be the most beneficial of bonds.  

ORISHAS OF THE WEEK

Olokun is the Orisha of great wealth and great mysteries.  Often veiled, one would need a messenger to have access to the great wealth and greater mysteries made just for us.  Eshu Aye is that messenger, said to walk along the seashores accompanied by Yemaya, holding the key to the treasure vaults of Olokun.  Esu Aye is the treasure keeper, who brings great wealth and financial stability.  Offerings can be made to him to ensure financial success.  This Esu knows all that we want, work with him during this full moon in Virgo to secure the bag.

It is said that Esu Aye is the one who works with Olokun.  Esu Aye is sent down to earth to answer prayers, they come in the form of mystical and prophetic visions, these visions provide guidance beyond limited concerns of everyday consciousness.  Make sure you find time outside of your everyday thoughts to access this energy and use it to your benefit.  

Olokun deals with the realms of our unconscious mind and things beyond this physical reality.  Olokun’s aspects are expressed in the astral realms, dreams, or in altered states of consciousness.  Olokun is accessed through meditation, initiation, or possession.  Olokun is deep and mysterious, no one knows what’s on the ocean floor.  Olokun is the owner of those mysteries on the ocean floor, she/he activates our inner genius when worked with.  Olokun will grant you great wealth, prosperity, and health.  He/She possesses unmatchable wisdom and is respected as an authority to all water deities.  

This Full Moon brings opportunities through healing, when we realize and work on our inner issues, the direct result is external well being.  If we are avoiding the inner work, our outer reality will begin to suffer and create almost unbearable tension.  Hopefully, this article gives you enough solutions to deal with the current energy bestowed on the planet.  Let me know if this was helpful, or if you have any additional questions.

 

Peace.

This Week in Astrology — Solar Eclipse in Aquarius (2018)

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

On February 15th, 2018 a partial solar eclipse will take place on the planet.  A solar eclipse is when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the sun for a viewer on Earth.  A Solar Eclipse is a New Moon and with any New Moon, this is a time for setting intentions and new beginnings. The Solar Eclipse is a New Moon with additional power.  So in this article, we will discuss the transits that will be happening during this Solar Eclipse cycle and some things we can do to prepare for it.  

New Moon in Aquarius

A New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are conjunct, this New Moon is in the Constellation of Aquarius.  To fully understand this transit we have to fully examine the sign of Aquarius and what it means.  Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, it is an Air sign, it promotes originality unpredictability.  Themes during an Aquarius transit will be around surrendering, liberation, and freedom.  The Sun and the Moon represent who you are personally and how you are feeling.  A New Moon is a perfect time to calibrate how you feel with who you are so you can live a more authentic life.  We have an inner and outer life, this New Moon cycle is a perfect time to align those lives so that we can express ourselves in truth.  Like any New Moon, the Solar Eclipse is a time for setting intentions and using the energy available to bring about a personal transformation. With any Solar Eclipse New Moon, this is the ending and beginning of a new and old cycle.

A deeper understanding of this time we are living in will give you the peace of mind needed to move forward.  We are living in a time called the Aquarian Age, our central sun is approaching this constellation, so with each passing year, we get closer to the full realization of the age.  The Aquarian Age represents humanity’s realization of their essential unity, how to be apart of the collective, as well as being an original person.  Freedom is a theme of the Aquarian Age, so to fully get free you will have to see where you are imprisoned and free yourself.

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus and this New Moon is additionally aided by a sextile to Uranus in Aries, adding more energy around the possibility for change and unexpected circumstances.  If you use this energy to reflect a changed person and are focused on your goals, you will be propelled to heights once thought unimaginable.  On the contrary, if one is struggling with change, this will be a rough transit based on missed opportunities and likely regret.  If one recognizes that change is supreme one will likely flourish through our current Eclipse Cycle.

This New Moon Solar Eclipse will square Jupiter in Scorpio, which will give us all an opportunity to overcome some major obstacles.   Jupiter in Scorpio is a light in the darkness.  Do you like what you see? Are you willing to change the things you do not like?  This is not a time for doom and gloom, this is an opportunity to make major changes.  It is a matter of perspective, yet there will be a large amount of energy available to actually overcome those obstacles.

“Where Jupiter in Libra was about working through our relationship with the outside world and balancing our inner work to find the greatest expansion of ourselves. Jupiter in Scorpio looks to bring optimism in our darker expressions to bring about expansion through transformation.”

New Moon in Aquarius (1)

During this New Moon, Mars will be Aspected by Neptune in Pisces and North Node in Leo.  Mars is in the Constellation of Sagittarius energizing exploration, adventure, optimism, and faith.  Actions are focused on the future and the energy will be available to make changes for the better.  Mars trine the North Node doubles down on this optimistic view of the future, it does not matter where you are in the present.  With a square to Neptune, it is important for the individual to be focused on a real result, rather than a fantasy. 

The Shango Eclipse

Aquarius is associated with change, rebellion, and disruption all themes that reflect Shango, the warrior Orisha of thunder, lightning, and fire.  Shango is known for working miracles.  Shango also rules over friends and associations, how people view you and receive you.  High Shango energy means you are well received and have a high sexual energy.  Shango also has dominion in the astrology transit of Mars in Sagittarius where energy and focus come together for a beautiful dance.  Dancing is one of Shango’s main characteristics.

Shango & Oya

This New Moon will be sextile Uranus, inviting Shango(New Moon in Aquarius) and Oya(Uranus in Aries) to once again unite to bring a major change in the individual.  “Oya is the favorite wife of Shango, the only wife who remained true to him until the end, leaving Oyo with him and becoming a deity when he did. She is Goddess of the Niger River, which is called the River Oya, but she manifests herself as the strong wind that precedes a thunderstorm. When Shango wishes to fight with lightning, he sends his wife ahead of him to fight with the wind.”   Shango once had 2 wives.  Oshun who was sexually attractive.  Oba who was the perfect doting wife.  He banished both of them because he realized that is not what he wanted.  He wanted something much more, he wanted a partner, and that is what he found in Oya.  Oya gave Shango his space, she complimented him and was there for him when he needed her the same as he was for her.  Oya recognized she needed space too.  They formed a balanced and supportive relationship.

What we can take from this story, is how to find our perfect balance.  Are we living in the ideal we had as children? Have we matured to enough to create a new ideal, that fits our new viewpoint of ourselves?  We have to be honest about our needs and what we truly want in order to get it.  Peace in our lives comes from honesty.  We can be honest with others and still not be honest with ourselves, creating the illusion of wellness, Shango is trying to present you with the reality of wellness.  To get there, you must be honest with yourself.  It is imperative.   We may have reached where we have become too arrogant and settled in our ignorance to make a change with our free will, that is when Shango and Oya come through with the energy of change, whether you like it or not.
