The Search for Meaning, Truth, and Values
Both Jupiter and Mercury station direct on Monday, October 18th. At 22°30 Aquarius Jupiter, the expansive teaching planet, has been retrograde since late June, bringing the search for meaning, truth, and ethical values to a deeper, more internal focus. Jupiter's forward motion now crafts a space of benevolence around success, new concepts, and creativity in the part of your chart that hosts 23° Aquarius.
Mercury Retrograde Shadow
We have been feeling the effects of Mercury retrograde since September 7th and will continue to traverse the shadow until November 3rd. However, as Mercury stations direct at 10°10' Libra flow will be more available, particularly in our relationships and how we communicate our values with one another. With the beautiful grand air trine at this turn of Mercury, there is an opportunity to take action beyond the perceived limitations around communication, thoughts, and how they may nurture and uplift. You may utilize this momentum to share your knowledge and wisdom with others.
Feisty Aries Full Moon
On Wednesday, October 20th the Moon waxes to full illumination at 24°12 Aries at 10:57 am edt. This Full Moon is intensely activating as it is directly conjunct Eris. Eris is the dwarf planet that connects to the archetype of goddess of discord and chaos. Eris is willing to go to battle or reveal any truth no matter the consequences if she feels the instinctual urge. Her energy is highly electric, and this moon therefore has a very fierce and feisty frequency. The Aries Moon and Eris oppose the Libra Sun and Mars, another alignment that seeks to bring to light conflicts and discrepancies. Finally the square of Pluto in Capricorn to all of these potentially agitated beings brings to the surface reverberations of the Saturn Pluto conjunction in January 2020.
The reality is that regardless of the challenge, there must be a commitment to the course of action. Life is an adventure. Each ending is ultimately a new beginning. As destiny fulfills itself, there is a movement to the next layer of the spiral dance. Even when expectations are high, it is important to remember that alternatives always exist. Solutions abound. Allow this Aries lunation to inspire you to reconnect to your favored channel of the Divine for support and inspiration.
