This month’s Full Moon occurs on February 3, 2015, at 4:09pm Mountain Standard Time. The Moon is in Leo close to Jupiter, which magnifies the drama, strength and ambition we may experience with this Moon. This Moon is also in an uncomfortable relationship with four planets traveling together in Pisces – Neptune, Venus, Chiron, and Mars. These four together are an interesting mix – a couple of examples to sum this up would be indulgence in fantasy to heal our passions, or a spiritually creative way to deal with our wounds. Then again it might manifest in physical illnesses – bad colds, sinus infections, unusual rashes or allergic reactions. I find myself just wanting to veg on the couch and watch movies. Enter Saturn into the mix! Saturn is bearing down on Neptune, and these two aren’t exactly best friends, though they can learn to play nice in the sandbox. Saturn tries to put limitations and boundaries on diffuse Neptune, and Neptune dissolves boundaries that Saturn imposes; a kind of cosmic Yin and Yang. An expression of this is choreographed dance – dance is a spiritual art that expresses very well through structure. In my example, I feel guilty for sitting and watching movies, and can’t enjoy them because I’m thinking about all the responsibilities that I think I’m neglecting. To solve this I’ve set time limits on my escape indulgences. Also in the mix we have the Moon in another uncomfortable relationship with Pluto in Capricorn. This can cause power struggles, or a push toward empowerment. Expect the unexpected with this, as Uranus is still dancing with Pluto, though it could be in our favor as Uranus is good with the Moon. Good news – Mercury, who has been in retrograde since January 21st, will be turning direct on the 11th! Give it a few days to get going forward again, but things gone awry should begin to work themselves out. All in all, while things are intense, we may experience surrealistic quality to the days ahead. Dreams may be prominent at this time. With the Sun and Mercury in Aquarius, we may have heightened awareness of our global connection, and can use that, along with our waking dreams, keeping the drama to a minimum and enhancing our personal power, to help make the world (macrocosm or microcosm) a better place.
