A quick run-down of this last Moon phase of the Moon cycle begun May 6th – is it just me or has this Moon cycle seemed to be 5 years long?
At 3:35p MDT today the Moon entered the Balsamic Moon phase at 26 degrees Aries 48′ AND held hands with Eris and Uranus (both sitting at 23 degrees Aries) with Ceres (ability to nurture) and the Vertex (Fated & Destined) both at 17 degrees Aries. We are being asked, during this phase, to Let Go of something we’ve held dear for a very long time. Something that speaks of our Independent nature, our need to BE ME, no matter what! Some aspect of the Ego-Self that no longer captures the True Essence of ME (as in you, and you and you…). We need to make space for that Authentic Self to show more fully now.
Aries’ cardinal fire nature brings in the NEW instinctual energy to Assert positive Action in some regard. To BE original, ME, and Pioneer a new path Within to show where I/you need to head, Without, soon enough.
Now Eris beckons us to ‘see’ what we’ve been IGNORING about our True Nature, what we’ve been reluctant to ask to the party that is our self-identity. Holding hands with Uranus, fast, out-of-normal-bounds and out-of-left field events, actions and circumstances are afoot. Hang on to something solid folks!
BE aware of YOUR OWN NATURE – see that you are grounded and centred at all times. There is a storm-a-brewing. Watch out for Impatience, Aggressive Behaviour, downright Anger at times – due to either the World is turning TOO FAST or NOT FAST ENOUGH! It depends upon YOUR NATURE.
The heat is definitely turned way way up now – accelerated MOTION forward on so many levels! Add to this mix – Pluto, now Rx (retrograde) within Capricorn, exactly squaring both Ceres and the Vertex, and still squaring the Eris and Uranus. All of this brings HUGE tension and stress deep Within the Self to Transform our Ego’s need for Power and Control! Let. GO. Is what the Balsamic Moon phase is asking of us now. Let. GO:
- Of the Past – you are in the NOW, headed for your Future…
- Of Needing Immediate Results – Ego-brain checklist of To Do’s don’t count anymore…
- Of people, groups, beliefs, mindsets – whatever/whomever has been HOLDING YOUR TRUE NATURE back! Just let go of their hands – you will be okay, I promise!
- Aries rules the Head – let off steam via moving your physical body, and/or visualize flipping the top off your Crown Chakra area (top of the head) to let the steam out naturally. If you’ve been experiencing headaches, migraines, tension in the jaws or ears – this lets off the energetic pressures amazingly well. Yoga poses, massage, shiatsu, acupuncture – all great ways to release this need to PUSH FORWARD, NOW DAMMIT! Go for a walk around the block then around the block again – whatever works for you.
NOW is not the time – BE Patient, BREATHE, BREATHE and BREATHE some more. The Dance between Uranus and Eris will culminate just after the New Moon (June 6th actually) as they connect EXACTLY – BOOM! This will occur again in September and then March, 2017. It is a culmination of the dance they’ve been doing since Eris entered Aries back in 1927. I expect some amazing thunderstorms between now and then, figuratively and actually. Every 500 years Eris and Uranus connect within Aries – bringing equal quantities of New and Not So Hot to the table, globally, personally.
Look in your charts to see where Aries resides – this is the area of your life where CHANGE is coming, Big Time! Swiftly and Out of Left Field! BE PREPARED to move once you ‘see’ your way forward, the Action you’ve been seeking for many months will be revealed. Yay!
Check where you have Capricorn (17 degrees) – this is the jumping off point of Pluto’s need to transform something re: material gain, goal-setting, climbing Higher than you ever expected or imagined – only IF you Let. GO. Allow the build-up of tensions and stress within to DO something ABOUT IT (whatever IT is in your life) in a GROUNDED and Centred way – THINK before you LEAP. Just saying…
It may seem like a combination of a vortex + hurricane + no oxygen + free fall all at the same time. Breathe, walk, jog, look yourself in the eyes in a mirror and SMILE. You are ON Track, and In Time. Trust in You and your instinctual/intuitive nature. Always and in All Ways.
