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 .

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…












Getting Ahead of Ourselves | New Moon in Aquarius | February 2019

New Moon FEB.png

With this New Moon in Aquarius (Decan II) aligned with the Prince of Swords and the 6 of Swords, we can get ahead of ourselves in good ways and bad. It can be airy-fairy and totally impractical, scattered-brain & neurotic. Or on the flip-side, these vibes can make way for highly innovative solutions to common problems and the unleashing of our individual creative genius.



This NEW MOON’s Soundtrack: Ahead of Myself by X Ambassadors [Music Video]

The Challenge: Racing thoughts, prone to anxiety, conviction without substance, quick to react without considering needs of others or the whole picture, so future-minded that presence is lost, baseless ideology/refusing to see the facts of reality, resistance of material world and physical matters, forgetting to take care of what is essential and most basic, racing thoughts, lack of follow-through on ideas, difficulty organizing thoughts/ideas enough to take proper action, lack of productivity, prone to distraction or excessive daydreaming that result in time-suck

The Breakthrough/Potential Wisdom: release limiting beliefs, highly-creative thought seeds, stepping into your unique flavor of genius, owning what makes you stand out, synchronistic events/miracles, cultivate new disciplined approach/scientific experimentation that leads to breakthroughs, connection to higher heart/higher mind/akashic records, freedom from self-fulfilling prophecy-like behavior that has resulted in a rut, break-free from unhealthy repetitive patterns, ability to understand deeper self and structure of consciousness inn self and humanity at large, alignment with greater purpose ( Soul mission) in a way that can be understood by the intellect

Here Come the Trolls

These New Moon vibes are ripe for internet trolls, especially those who are pushing an ideology with relentless passion. This zone of the zodiac is quite disconnected from reality, which can result in dehumanizing rhetoric and lotsa talk of ideas and pie-in-the-sky theories. Beware of circular logic traps and those who just want to play mind-games. It’s possible to encounter people who only seek to prove themselves right and are closed off to anything outside of their own heads. It’s a great time to disconnect in healthy ways — for the sake of our own sanity!

Unplugging is favored. Maybe even a digital detox is in order… to help you get grounded in the here and now.

Ignore the trolls. Disengage from any conversation that quickly goes nowhere or leaves you feeling ostracized in any way. Good rules of thumb any day of the week, but especially now… because you may catch yourself getting sucked into fruitless debates. If you do, that’s a wonderful opportunity to identify any of your own ideas or beliefs that you cling to without taking the time to consider anything outside of that realm, and loosen your grip. It can really open our minds and liberate us from our own cages of thinking, when we are willing.


Brainstorm

Your mind is likely to be full of ideas that can pop into your head like a bolt of lightning and just as quickly disappear into thin air. This is a doubly airy zone of the cosmos, so capture what you can before it vanishes.

Genius ideas may come to you that can truly serve to better your life, or even impact the world at large.. So jot that shizz down! Keep a notepad handy or a note-taking app on your phone readily accessible.

If you’re in desperate need for solutions to a problem in your life, make time for a brainstorm session. Write down everything that comes to you. There could definitely be some gold in there, when you sift through your ideas and really see what happens when your mind is let loose. You may surprise yourself!

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
— Albert Einstein

Weird Science

Aquarius is the sign of the inventor, the scientist, the genius and the revolutionary. From the perspective of The 6 of Swords [Science], these archetypes are emphasized. This is the time to strike a balance between your out-of-the-box ideas and practical application. Come up with a theory for whatever’s perplexing you and get ready to experiment.

We can experience (or essentially, induce) a breakthrough when we are willing to try a different way, just to see what happens. The trick is to remain detached and — even if the issue may be deeply personal — come at it as though you were a scientist.

Be willing to try and fail. Create a hypothesis. Test your own theories.

Sometimes we get so caught up in our way of doing things, we never stop to consider any radical ideas that come to mind, dismissing them without ever seeing what could happen.

>> May be another fun New Moon Intention setting strategy to try! <<

***

A while ago I experimented with how I spend my money. I had this realization that I was spending money on my boys easily and all the time… but when it came to buying something for myself, I hesitated or put it off, even when it came to things I really needed. I had all this Mommy-guilt and anxiety around spending money on myself.

So, I did an experiment. I started making it a priority to buy for myself. And not only necessities, but also little indulgences here and there, like fresh flowers from my favorite Farmer’s Market when I was buying groceries for the family. It was different than my normal at the time, and it felt like a stretch. I was aiming at simply having less anxiety around spending money on things I, personally, needed.

What I discovered was my income increased when I did this. I somehow made more money when I was willing to spend money on myself. It was seriously strange — an outcome I hadn’t expected!

We’re supported in experimenting, exploring and pioneering a new way forward right now, especially when it comes to things we feel limited by or have been too afraid to face before.

So if you’re going to get ahead of yourself, do it in the best possible way! Take radical responsibility for your Future. Tinker with new ways of doing things or put your inner-genius to work on your most pressing concerns right now.
