Double-Down | Full Moon in Libra | April 2019

This Full Moon event occurs at the FINAL degree in the sign of Libra, so it brings with it a vibration of closing, ending a cycle more completely than an ordinary Full Moon phase might. It’s also important to take into account that this is the 2nd Full Moon in Libra in a row… helping us to fully integrate what we set into motion last October during the New Moon in Libra during a Venus Retrograde. This is a double-dose of the Aries/Libra vibes that were starting to resolve situations  last month during the March Full Moon in Libra at 0 degrees at the Equinox .

This FULL MOON’s Soundtrack: Feel It Still by Portugal. The Man [Music Video]

The Challenge: Avoidance of decision-making for fear of what others may think, complacency, people-pleasing to one’s own detriment, ignoring reason or reality in favor of wishful thinking, holding-out for a desired-outcome ending in loss of control

The Breakthrough/Potential Wisdom: Complete resolution of an issue in order to bring peace and balance, the courage to make difficult decisions that has long-lasting benefits, healthy adjustment, justice served, restoring balance, peaceful agreements that ultimately lead to progress for key issues

Considering the last Full Moon in Libra we experienced in March with the Equinox was associated with the 2 of Swords, this one really draws on this theme of Doubling Down with the 4 of Swords (2 doubled). Adding to this theme, Mars will be in the double-take, twinning sign of Gemini, encouraging us to speak up and get the job done.


What I find fascinating with this particular card at this particular point in time, though, is the significance of Uranus. At the time of this Double Full Moon, the Sun will be closing in on Uranus. This will be their first meet-up of this kind (since progressive Uranus has moved into Taurus ground) since 1942. Social justice is a Uranian stronghold, and there’s an element of instilling social peace, a kind of compromise that suits all sides of an issue, at play with this 4 of Swords. The swords come together, and meet in the Center. A clearly impending crisis begets an intellectual understanding that something must be done to adjudicate a resolution. It may not be pretty, and not everyone will get what they want right this hot minute, but it will bring peace to a situation that’s getting out of hand and provide a more level playing field in the future.

Do you see this in the image on the card? The clear-cut swords define a space, shielding the rose in the center from the threatening live wires (abstract yellow web of lines) on the outside.

In the Book of Thoth, Crowley describes the 4 of Swords as “the strong man armed, keeping his house in peace”.


Feeling It Still. . .

What is it that still feels off, not right, unjust or like it’s getting out of control? We’ve all got our issues. At this time, there may be lots of unresolved situations that are vying for your attention, so it’s worth narrowing down what most requires your attention.

Hint: It’s that thing that feels worrisome, makes you squirm a bit at the thought of it. It’s probably keeping you up at night and could likely cause a disruption in your relationships if you were to actually face it head-on. That’s the place to turn and make an effort toward resolution.

“It” is not new. You’ve been feeling this for a while, although, you may not have had the complete awareness of it to pinpoint what needs to really be done about it. But, now you’ll have a better grasp on it. It may have started to come to light around the time of that last Full Moon in Libra (March 20th - Mercury was still retrograde in Pisces then) and remained in the background, like a low-vibe hum that threatens your sanity because you just cannot tune it out.

This doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a “bad thing” or something that needs to go. It could be something that you desperately want to do, something that excites and terrifies you at the same time. If you only had the courage to act on it, speak up or make that damn decision to end the war within that causes you so much anxiety, privately.


Still — This energy is best utilized when we get still and listen. Not only to what our heart tells us, but to what others are really saying. Perhaps there’s a side of the story you haven’t considered or a new piece of information you need in order to make a wise decision. In the stillness we can truly feel into what it is we need, and open up to considering what could be best for everyone in the future. Get still to consider what is in your best interest AND the best interest of others. It’s difficult to do that when there’s so much noise.


Settle It.

I come from a family of lawyers, so I’m very familiar with the term settlement when it comes to court cases. The 4 of Swords elicits a settlement of sorts; a truce. Coming to an agreement to end a dispute. After you’ve seen the evidence, made your case, and all sides have been heard, there’s an opportunity to settle out of court or get a settlement; settle for whatever the judge or jury decides will be just.

While it may or may not be a legal settlement for you, there’s an air of reaching an agreement or coming to terms with an issue. We get an opportunity to put something to rest and truly move on. There is a definite ending with this Full Moon at the final degree of Libra, and we can choose to settle out of court, so to speak, or let some external authority settle it for us.

With the planetary ruler of this Full Moon in Libra, Lady Venus, making an awkwardly challenging aspect to this lunar climax, we may have trouble letting go of our desire for an ideal outcome.

We may want to hold-on; devoted to a dream or belief in a perfect world where no one ever loses and all is forgiven. A sudden realization could help us recognize that peace in this moment, a settling of some kind, will bring about more harmony than dragging something out for longer than necessary.

Chances are good we’ll have to accept a little less than what we had hoped for in order to bring some issue to a close, so we can make actual progress toward what we ultimately desire and what matters most. It could become (suddenly) crystal clear that something cannot continue in the way that it has and a choice must be made.


Double-Down For What?

Revelations and realizations rule the day. Something came to light before, but now it’s in your face. It gets clear and demands action. The 4 of Swords can indicate a military-like forcefulness that tamps down civil unrest, like sending the troops in to calm rioting mobs. Not to be confused with war, this energy is all about doing whatever is necessary to resolve a situation that may be reaching a breaking point (that could potentially lead to war). It preserves life, brings peace and restores balance.

There is a central focus. A clear response. This Moon triggers decisive action.

With this being a Double Full Moon, there is this commanding presence that is like doubling-down. Any resistance is simply met with more force to balance the scales. While all that doesn’t seem pretty at the moment, it is necessary in order allow beauty and balance and all the poetic Libran qualities to flourish in the future.

If you had an inkling or a nudge in a new direction with the last Full Moon, this time around that feeling could become a compelling force that spurs you (or someone else) into action. I’ll be honest, it’s a more serious vibe with this one. There may be temporary disruption or fall-out, but decisions made now can lead to more of what you want in the future when you keep in mind what matters to you above all else. Remember this year we can consciously upgrade our lives.

This is the 4 of Swords and the final degree of Libra. The next Full Moon is in Scorpio, where we’ll investigate and get to the bottom of things. This moment in time is an opportunity to clear out what’s not working so we can have the energy for the deeper healing that’s coming next.



Feel It Coming. . .

In the stars at the time of this Full Moon, we’ve got a Cardinal Cross. We may feel stretched. There could be an uprising that needs to be settled to lay the groundwork for what’s ahead… But the Moon reigns supreme with the North Node of the Moon in Cancer. The Moon — fully lit — guides us back to our center, to inner-security. It’s also our feminine, intuitive guiding light.

Especially with the Sun in close proximity to Uranus now, we could feel and psychically see what’s coming when we are able take decisive action that frees our energy up to receive more insight.

So make the call. Put your foot down. Choose.

There’s more, right around the corner. You can feel it coming…












Delicate Balance | Full Moon in Virgo | February 2019

Full Moon FEB.png

This Full SUPER Moon event occurs at the 0 degree mark in the sign of Virgo, so it brings with it a vibration of renewal. While Full Moon’s are generally illuminating, revealing and releasing…. this one (and next month’s Full Moon in Libra, also happening at the 0 degree mark) brings on an extra burst of NEW energy, too.


This FULL SUPERMOON’s Soundtrack: Delicate by Taylor Swift [Music Video]

The Challenge: criticism, negative self-chatter, worry, micro-managing tendencies or pressure/effects, missing the details or over-looking important features or the fine-print, naivete, jealousy, finicky or picky — too focused on details that don’t really matter, pettiness, gossip, meddling or chatter that disrupts natural maturation of goodness resulting in a ‘spoiling’ of circumstances that ruins what is best left alone or untouched (this could alter actual results), vulnerable to poisoning or toxicity

The Breakthrough/Potential Wisdom: release what’s not working or worthwhile in the long run, focus , knowing what to leave untouched, understanding particular needs appropriate to natural cycles, efficiency, productivity, tuning into natural rhythms and nature itself/working in communion with natural processes, natural instincts - especially when applied to material concerns like finances, organization or production, the benefits of caution and patience - good things come to those who wait, humility, smart moves and even strategic victories, grounded, inner-security/rooted in and supported by the physical realm in a sustainable manner, holistic healing/healthy improvement, satisfactory evidence in a situation that brings resolution

Virgo Decan I.png

With this Full Moon in Virgo (Decan I) aligned with the 8 of Disks, we can get more rooted and secure when we know what we’re working for. An extra dose of patience is on tap, when we know it will be worth the wait and our efforts will pay off in the end — even if we can’t yet see when that end will be. This vibe also helps us get clear on what’s actually worth our attention and what’s just so not anymore.

We may feel a bit more flexible when it comes to letting some things that are unnecessary fall by the wayside. Our focus can turn toward what actually deserves our attention; as it shows us signs of progress or feels most promising in the moment. (Feels being the operative word here. Logic may not have all the answers you need at this time.)


... in purely material matters, especially those relating to actual money, there is a sort of strength in doing nothing at all.
— Aleister Crowley, The Book of Thoth

It’s also an indication of investments paying off in the end. Prime time for at least setting something aside for the future and leaving it alone — letting time work it’s magic. Like fine wine aging or financial investments, like retirement accounts, some things are just better after time has passed and require little to no effort once properly set up.

(It’s the benefit of time itself; the time it takes for things to grow or multiply, naturally, producing dividends. This also applies to healing… the peace we begin to feel only after some time has passed.)

On the card is an image of a tree growing tall and flowering. Every organic gardener knows that if the soil is nutrient-rich, the plant well-cared for and protected, then it builds a natural immunity to pests and as it grows will produce abundant fruit with little effort.

Making Gains

This Full phase of the Moon completes a cycle that began last September, with the New Moon in Virgo. Think back to what you started then, or set in motion. If you’ve been setting New Moon intentions, now’s the time to take stock and look back at what you intended back in September.

Make the time to secure your bounty, or at the very least tighten up the preparations for what you feel will be needed in the future, before the next New Moon (in Pisces) in early March, when we can expect some ground-breaking events that make us think twice. Things may be extra confusing next month, when dramatic changes cause us to reflect and rely ever more on our intuition and psychic abilities. [New Moon + Uranus moves into Taurus + Mercury stations Retrograde all on the same day!] We won’t have this kind of access to the clearly analytical-mindedness of Virgo then.

Untouchable

This phase, as represented by the 8 of Disks, is a delicate stage of development in the grand scheme of things. While we may see signs of progress, the process is not yet complete. It’s not time to harvest - it’s time to protect the future harvest and ensure the results will be optimal in the end.

Just as flower petals are a beautiful sign that fruit is on it’s way, it’s best not to touch the delicate petals. If we tamper with them, we risk sacrificing the end result (material gains/abundance) for a split second of pleasure. Resist the urge to fix things that are best left to Mother Nature, especially those things that are new and just beginning to emerge — like a new relationship or a recent investment.

Patience is vital now. It needs time to mature. This also applies to some things we may notice going sour…. sometimes what’s not beneficial will dismantle of it’s own accord without any interference on our part. It’s best to listen to your intuition when it comes to knowing when to keep your mouth shut or hands off and let karma take it’s natural course.

Keep It Neat and Tidy

With Virgo’s clean moonbeams, it is a good time to remove excesses to better your chances of prosperity and abundance come harvest time.

I have a wild raspberry patch in my backyard. In the early springtime, I prune the canes, carefully removing the excess to ensure a bountiful berry harvest in the growing season. It requires that keen Virgo-eye, though. If I cut back too many canes, or fail to remove the old and dead wood, the harvest is lousy. But if I don’t clear away enough of the raspberry canes, it quickly becomes overgrown and the berries are difficult to reach in the tangled mess, limiting the berry-bounty. It’s a surgical process under the influence of Virgo moonbeams.

The load can be lightened in a way that produces a better, cleaner outcome. Not a time to get carried away with any details that don’t matter, though. Any effort applied must be meticulous, as to not disrupt the delicate balance that has potential to produce a high yield. Make sure you clean up what needs cleaning up and nothing more.
