The path to the Star Temple was bathed in Moon light so Snowy Owl and Shooting Star could see the way. When they reached the entrance to the Sacred Circle the Standing One that guarded their special flying capes was also lit by Sister Moon. The sisters saw three Winged Ones perched in the lower branches. First was Red Tailed Hawk, the spiritual messenger of Creator and Great Mystery, then Crow, the holder of justice and fairness for all, and finally Raven, the guide to magic and the Mysteries.
“Put on your flying capes and fly with us” the Winged Ones said. The sisters retrieved their feather capes from the hollow in the Standing One and began the journey into the indigo night. They passed the Wanderers and Starry Ones and came to the Crack in the Universe. They were at the edge of time. The Winged Ones who had guided them here then disappeared. The sisters were not afraid for they had been here before but wondered what new messages they would receive.
As the door they were standing before opened Sister Moon spoke “This is the doorway of Illumination. All two leggeds now have the opportunity to step forward into their true selves and be the light in the darkness. In the far away time there is much conflict and pain on the Earth Mother in the human kingdom. That was never the Divine Plan. Peace, harmony, and Love is what Creator and Great Mystery were intending. As you look into this circle of life shine your light on those who are ready to ignite their Divine Spark and the world will be transformed. When you radiate Love it will heal all.”
As Snowy Owl and Shooting Star began their journey back to the Star Temple the whole Universe was singing “All we need is Love, all we need is Love, all we need is love, and ALL WE NEED IS LOVE, love is all we need, love is all we need.”
This is an Interesting story given this potent, dramatic, and potentially traumatic Full Moon. “All we need is Love” from a Beatle’s song? Could it be that simple? What is Love? It is a word that describes many emotional states. Ecstasy to agony. What this Full Moon asks is what do you choose? Balance or conflict? That is the theme for this Lunation and from now until the end of the year.
The planetary dance is intense today with oppositions (tugs of war) squares (challenges) and conjunctions (harmony or conflict). Raven Kaldera, in his book “Moon Phase Astrology”, calls this The Warriors Full Moon and that seems to be an appropriate description for the energy being generated with this Lunation. Uranus is conjunct the Moon in Aries (personal freedom) opposite (conflict) the Sun in Libra (relationship harmony) and all are square (finding new ways of doing things) Pluto in Capricorn (releasing the old that no longer works.) But there is another configuration that is adding fuel to the fire.
Since July the Uranian planet Kronos (authorities and everything high up) in Cancer (the family and homeland) has been in tight opposition (conflict or harmony) to Pluto in Capricorn (society and governments). He has also been square (finding new ways of doing things) Uranus in Aries (freedom and new ways of doing things). At this Full Moon he creates a Cardinal Grand Cross (inspired action) and asks all of us to become Spiritual Warriors and our own authority, not in an aggressive way, but as peacemakers who embody love. The Kronos opposition to Pluto will still be in effect in November. It will be interesting to see how this influences the US election. And, by the way, Mercury goes retrograde on voting day so who knows what will happen.
At this Lunation the Moon in Aries (the I Am Self) is ruled by Mars in Scorpio (transformational action) which is conjunct the Scorpio North Node (new directions). He is opposite the South Node in Taurus (stubbornly hanging onto the past) which is conjunct the Uranian planet Admetos (intensity and blocks). Venus in Leo (compassionate love) rules the Sun in Libra (relationship harmony) and she is square (finding new ways of doing things) Mars, the Nodes, and Admetos. On Sept 27 Mars and Venus (relationship) entered their Fourth Quarter Square phase (realignment and revision). The message is clear. Let go of the past for it blocks and limits you from living life in harmony and joy. Work with the positive energy of this Full Moon and you will be free.
As our story tells us the Animal Totems that guide us at this Full Moon are Crow, justice and balance, and Raven, magic and the mysteries, for the Sun in Libra and Red Tailed Hawk, spiritual messenger, for the Moon in Aries. Pay attention to the messages you receive for they are coming directly from Creator and Great Mystery.
The Clan Mother (the 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams) who guides us for the Sun in Libra is Weaves The Web. She is the Guardian of the life force in all things, the eternal flame of love, and working with the truth. For the Moon in Aries the Clan Mother is Looks Far Woman. She is the Guardian of the dreamtime and Doorkeeper of the crack in the universe and the golden door of illumination. She teaches us to see the truth in all things. She carries the medicine of prophecy and the ability to see into other dimensions. The Clan Mothers and the Animal Totems are working together at this Full Moon to connect us to our Divine Selves and the liberation that creates.
The Sun in Libra is expressed on the Tarot Constellation of The High Priestess, the principle of Balanced Judgment Through Intuitive Awareness. Libra is always seeking balance but sometimes does not listen to the Inner Knowing that will create harmony. The Ray for this Libra Sun is 3rd Ray, Active Intelligence and Divine Mind. We are being asked to listen to the guidance from Creator and Great Mystery as we make choices about our relationships and life path. The Archangels who guide us are Chamuel, healing through Divine Love, and Charity, acceptance and gratitude.
The Moon in Aries is on the Tarot Constellation of The Emperor, the principle of Life Force and Realization of Power. Aries, if caught in ego, can be self centered and overpowering. That upsets the balance that Libra is trying to create. The key with this potent Full Moon is co-operation and integration that leads to harmony. Aries is a 7th Ray sign, Ceremonial Order and White Magic. It asks us to walk through the golden door of illumination and become teachers for others. The Archangels who guide us are Zadkiel, invocation and prayer, and Amethyst, forgiveness and freedom. They are Keepers of The Violet Flame of Transformation and Transmutation.
Aries is also a 1st Ray sign, Divine Will and Power. This Ray connects us to our Divine Essence as Creator and Great Mystery long for each human to remember who they really are. The Archangels who guide us are Michael, protector and spiritual destiny guide, and Faith, trust, love, and belief in self.
The road ahead will be intense as the planetary dance swings and shifts. You cannot control what is happening in the world but you can strengthen your inner power when you are anchored in your Divine Self and weather the storms.
Here are the Moon phases and planetary activations. All times are 75 west longitude EDT. We have listed the day and time the Moon changes signs. This information is also posted on Dale’s Facebook Timeline as the shifts happen.
Sun in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries- Sept 29- 3.15am EDT- This sets the mood for the Full Moon tonight. Volatility in the world is the potential. On a personal level avoid conflict. Libra is the sign of the peacemaker. Moon enters Aries- 9.14am EDT-Sun in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn- 1.55pm EDT- Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus in Aries- 9.41pm EDT- square Pluto in Capricorn- 10.35pm EDT- When the Moon enters Aries it usually means inspired new beginnings. Not so much this time given the planetary aspects. Both the Sun and Moon square Pluto activations indicate something happens that is beyond our control and we have to find new ways of doing things. The Moon/Uranus conjunction can mean breaking through to personal freedom or collective rebellion and chaos. Personally I am staying home today.
Aries/Libra Full Moon- Sept 29- 11.20pm EDT- This is a very potent Full Moon given all the aspects earlier today. Libra can be passive aggressive and Aries can be angry aggressive. Make sure you are in your Sacred Center as you interact with others. This Full moon completes the lessons we have been working on since the Aries New Moon of March 22, 2012. Here is what we wrote “The Clan Mother who guides us is Looks Far Woman. She is the guardian of the Crack in the Universe and the Golden Door of Illumination. At this New Moon you are planting seeds that will blossom at summers end. Use this Aries New Moon to enter the Golden Door of Illumination and your Soul will be the gardener of your new beginnings.” The question to ask yourself is “who am I now?”
Moon in Aries sextile Jupiter in Gemini- Sept 30- 4.40pm EDT- This will feel like a breath of fresh air after yesterday’s intensity. Focus on your spiritual path and personal growth. Remember we are in the Virgo New Moon cycle of mind, body, and spirit healing.
