The healer, artist. Our humanity shines bright and the desire to connect with the resonate polarity is strong. Artistic and creative expressions are made manifest during full Moon phase. This is the polarity of our solar and lunar nature in orgasmic celebration and peak fertility during full Moon phase. In tantra yoga, this is the union of Moon and Sun, in and out-breath at the heart, breath pause kumbhaka. Relates with dawn and the element is earth. In the hero’s journey, this is the sacred Marriage of resonate polarities, between the archetypes of Sun/Moon. In the menstrual cycle, this phase is ovulation. The egg is released from ovary into fallopian tubes and the possibility of ferritization is greatest. Metaphysically, this is when we fertilize our creations with thought seeds and manifestation rituals have the greatest potential. The prime hormone for this phase is estrogen which stimulates luteinizing hormone which stimulates the release of the egg. This is also the peak of testosterone in the cycle so we see a lot of hormonal stimulation at full Moon phase. The full Moon phase is about 72 hours, which also coincides closely to the time from onset of ovulation where fertilization is possible. Orgasm, ovulation, the moment of truth, polarity connection, endorphin high. Use foods that are packed with flavor, colorful, juicy and nutrient dense.
Moon in Aquarius:
Moon just after fullest phase moves into cosmic Aquarius where we go far out beyond the realm of possibilities. Notice your innovative ideas and radical rebellion. How can you bring these things all the way down to your-body-the-earth?
Astrology info to consider:
Over the next 8 days, Sun is moving towards a full opposition with Jupiter/Pluto rx, intensifying the effects of this conjunction. Cancer/Capricorn axis is about right relationship with the land, authority, government, home and family. The effects of the last eclipse on this axis last at least 6 months so we can expect this process of becoming self reliant in our homes/communities to continue.
Mercury rx squaring up exact 90° with Mars, aggressive speech coming from wounded places, communication from and about parts of self we’ve rejected and repressed. Verbal actions can be extremely healing and/or harming. Be aware of expressions of pain and allow yourself to heal. Doing Chiron work helps you become your medicine.
