Full Moon in Aries

Aries is cardinal fire, the epitome of “I AM” conscious of self…today, in the present energies, even the attributes of Aries that are typically considered negative traits, we use for the edification of our soul…egotistical – centering on our current state in this life, aggressive -actively moving toward our goal…

 

The Moon, our sense of perception, sensory impressions from our environment, the foundations of our intelligence and emotions in Aries, the spontaneous self motivated pioneer leader energy, in the 12th house the house of our conscious phase where we meet the results of our outer lives.

 

The cardinal signs take action – they charge in and get the job done and by now, the universe says, we should have a handle on who we are  and what our purpose is for this life so we can get on with getting things done…moving into the place where you should be, taking the position you should have, finally realizing the benefit of all that you have experienced to date.  Fire signs burn things…let an Aries do your spring cleaning for you and you may not have anything left in your house that isn’t absolutely necessary…and for many, that might be a positive change…Aries may seem totally self centered, but the fire signs show you your true identity…burning off the things that you only pretended to be for acceptance…aries says acceptance be damned… I AM that I am.

 

In the chart for the day, we have a few T-squares…the apex of which provides our motivation and is the driving force behind the aspect pattern…the apex here being Jupiter…we also have a grand trine involving Saturn and Jupiter.

 

With the sun opposite the moon, we’re torn between an environment that is very comfortable versus a real need to know and progress…you may be caught in the middle but the T-spare makes it easy to sit and do nothing if that be your choice or you can follow in the path of the grand trine and GO…if you choose to sit – you will face the consequences of inaction sooner than later, because Aries waits for no one.

 

Saturn in Scorpio – giving us difficulty in owning up to any selfishness at all or other mental undercurrents – attempting to deny passions, a need to accept instincts; a time for real determination giving up superficiality in favor of indepth learning and self discipline…separating the wheat from the chaff,

 

Pluto sextile Saturn – a time of change that finds us examining our foundations, responsibilities and basic sense of security…giving us a chance to dispense with all that is unsound or superficial leaving only the solid.

The Empress is the mother of birth!  even though this is the full moon, a time of things coming to fruition, this is also only the 2nd month of the hebrew year, still setting our course for what is to come for the wheel for the rest of the year…choose wisely your path grasshopper.

Being after sunset, today in the hebrew calendar is the 15th of Chesvan…the 8th month..signifying eternal revelation of the supernatural.  the number 8 transcending the number 7. 7 being spiritual completeness…and 8 going what is beyond… Chesvan’s planet is Mars, also the planet of Aries ruled by the letter Dalet.

Dalet

In gematria, the number 8 signifies new beginnings, as in the flood story which according to the writings, began and ended in the month of chesvan.. We talked about the stock market crash also happened in the month of chesvan, but new beginnings, often require something first had to have happened to make that new beginning necessary or possible as it were. Over the course of the past few  moon ceremonies, we have had hints at finally being in a position where we had to let go of those things that were holding us back, and now, we are in the place of beginning anew.  Coming up on the Samhain holiday which marks the beginning of winter or the dark days, which many of us professed last year, was our favorite time, a period of great reflection and introspection, a time to work on ourselves.

 

I’ve had this on my mind for several days now…it came to me one morning this week when I was driving…in a completely relaxed state, I know my brain goes into alpha mode if I’m not yelling at someone that just cut me off, that is….anyway, I was thinking on the upcoming holidays, Samhein, the day of the dead and how it’s stated that the veil is at its thinnest beginning this time of year, at All Hallows Eve, and what that means to those of us who remain in this plane of existence…We’ve done visualizations going to the summerland to meet loved ones that have passed on, but one thing stands out to me, the veil not only thins during this time of year, for many people, it gets increasingly thinner year by year as we awaken to the reality of who we are, the ancient spirits that have come to greet us from the other shore being older more wiser versions of ourselves…, all that we’ve learned about our souls and spirits coming back to finish a work or to correct a mistake on one or more existences, so we keep in mind during the next few weeks, as the veil thins, we come closer and closer to our own divinity.  Because although it is something we are all inherently born with, we have to attain that level of consciousness and one-ness within the universe so it’s no longer necessary to repeat the same path…finally rising through Kether returning to the star that you are.

 

We have the 4 queens representing the Sphere of Binah – Understanding

wands-queen swords-queen disks-queen cups-queen

and the 4 kings or Knights representing Chokmah  swords-knight disks-knight cups-knight wands-knight

for our totem animal we have the dove, I chose the white winged dove…and it’s particularly interesting as we’ve been dealing with the Empress card, the totem animals have both so far been species that are monogamous.  Not a judgment against mankind as a species – just consider the differences.

 

There is a full moon lunar eclipse at 25 degrees Aries on October 18th.     From the chart data of winstar
“This has a transitional feel between our inner mission and outer destiny. It’s about questioning and learning how the inner personal journey combines with the outer world. Not just about actions, but the meaning of actions and how they fit the larger picture.  It’s about why, not just how, and what to do about it. ”  The eclipse is an alignment and the energies of this Full moon are about YOUR alignment…the light shining on  what remains of your shadow. ”

Tree of life Path Chokmah and Binah

 

Chokmah symbolizes the mirror in which God’s oneness reflects itself…it is our mirror image.  The only thing in physical reality that is truly first dimensional is energy- as it can travel from point A to point B (length) yet has absolutely no width to measure. Therefore Chockmah also represents the energy used in the Creation. From Kether to the right of the tree.  Binah (understanding) is the energies we need to comprehend ourselves…It is the planet Saturn. Binah is the Great Mother (Aima) impregnated by the Father (Abba), and from whom the lower Spheres of the Tree will emanate.

 

Path 14. The Illuminating Intelligence, so called because it is the scintillating flame which is the founder of the concealed and fundamental ideas of holiness and of their stages of preparation.  Fed by the light of Kether, Chokmah is wisdom equilibrated in its unchangeable order by the initiative of intelligence and Binah is active intelligence equilibrated by Wisdom…they are the upper triad of the tree our higher connection to our divinity.
