Today’s Full Moon is pretty intense. The Sun and Jupiter are together in Aquarius opposing the Moon in Leo. Jupiter can expand everything for both good or bad and its influence can amplify the potentially intense feelings this Full Moon may bring. A difficult connection from the Full Moon and Uranus and Mars in Taurus makes this a potentially angry day with sudden events and eruptions possible. Uranus rules Aquarius so this strengthens the effect. Aquarius is all about the mind, humanitarian concerns, unusual ideas and breaking away from conformity. Uranus is electric, it is known for bringing the unexpected, for radical ideas and actions and for shaking things up. In earthy Taurus, these two planets together may portend changes in finances and even the earth itself. Saturn brings restrictions as well. This is a day with pretty much only hard aspects everywhere, which makes it extremely intense for us all. And, all three of these powerful signs are fixed, which means they can be stubborn and immovable.
This is an especially intense Full Moon. In Western Astrology, it is in fiery Leo. In Vedic Astrology, which uses the Sidereal Zodiac, the Full Moon is in super emotional Cancer. However you look at it, this is likely to be powerful!
During the Full Moon, the Sun and Moon are opposite in the sky. There is a push pull between the ego and the emotions, between work and home, desires and responsibilities and so on. The effect of the Full Moon lasts for several weeks and brings the focus to relationships. We all need to take a deep breath and practice some mindful patience and acceptance of others, taking the time to actively listen without angry reaction. Can we do this?
