The Full Moon is at 9°17’ Libra and exactly conjoins my natal Neptune (and Moon in Libra) in my eleventh house on March 29, 2010 PDT.
To say I love the Sabian symbol for 10 Libra, “A canoe is approaching safety through dangerous waters” is an understatement because the week preceding this lunation was filled with tumultuous aspects triggering the cardinal T-square points, and for many of us was a little over the top. In my post, Relationship Power Struggles Ahead, I touched on some possible outcomes in regards to relationships/partnerships under this influence. I know I welcome some calmer waters ahead, even if it is only a temporary respite before Uranus moves into Aries in late May.
Saturn in Libra is widely conjunct the Moon and still sextile the now direct Mars in Leo, offering us some stability. But Saturn is also not that far away from returning to Virgo (April 7, 2010) and forming the fourth exact opposition at 28° to Uranus in Pisces on April 26, 2010. Personally I find the extreme polarization generated by this opposition from fear (Saturn) of change (Uranus) deeply uncomfortable. Even under these conditions, we can still focus on seeing both sides of personal and mundane issues in order to find some common ground to stand on.
There is an interesting little triangle formed by Venus in Aries semi-sextile Uranus in Pisces semi-sextile Neptune in Aquarius at exactly 27 degrees. If we note that Venus represents the Libra planets (Moon and Saturn) with Uranus in Pisces in mutual reception to Neptune in Aquarius (Uranus rules Aquarius, Neptune Pisces), it is like this group forms their own little voting block for peace, love and harmony in the collective. Mercury can act as their spokesperson via its waxing conjunction with Venus in Aries. So sue me if I can’t help looking for something positive these days! I do have Sun-Chiron conjunct Jupiter in my twelfth house encouraging an interest in healing both personal and collective wounds.
Jupiter in Pisces is sitting on the sidelines for this lunation but will re-enter the fray all too soon as he closes in on Uranus in Pisces. Since I’m inclined to see Jupiter amplifying existing energies, I see Jupiter conjoining Uranus as potentially explosive. Yeah, fun . . .
The Sabian symbol for the Sun is 10 Aries, “A teacher gives new symbolic forms to traditional images”. Does this reflect the square between the Sun in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn? Breaking with tradition and rewriting the rules is certainly possible under that influence because Pluto is always ready and willing to ruthlessly wipe the slate clean, while Aries is ever eager for making a fresh start. I suppose how we feel about this has to do whether we prefer to rip off bandages in one clean jerk, or peel them back a bit at a time. I’m Libra and can go either way depending on the particular circumstances.
Grab your peaceful moments where you can find them. I know I will be doing just that!
Elsa P has a post on Flashbacks and Boundaries in Relationships I feel is very appropriate to this Full Moon with its cardinal T-square to Pluto. What she describes in this post I consider emotional blackmail and absolutely loath. When others attempt to do this to me I walk away . . . very fast.
“In other words, “I was abused so I am going to do this from time to time and you have to stand it” is not the greatest position to take though many do.”
If you enjoy learning about the impact of the various asteroids on this lunation, Karen of Ravenesque has a great post on the Full Moon in Libra.
