The Full Moon is not exact for another 30 hours or so* but how trippy is it already?
It’s because its signature alignment – the Aries Sun conjunct Eris-Persephone and square Pluto – is already in play. Cue recognition of power-plays/prejudice and the audacity to call people out on it.
If this is you, it’s not theatrical assertion because you’re full-mooned up and feisty – this is transition-astrology. Eris-Pluto is a broad, long-running cultural confrontation/evolution but the Sun and – soon – Full Moon in the config means more or less everyone gets to channel their own personal micro version of it.
Double-Digit Inflation, Eris-Pluto Revelations
Think about the last 12 hours: has your thought process been energetically like a flurry of bats before you settled on one succinct conclusion? And the lucidity was essentially that you were accepting or trying to ‘process’ certain conduct because you felt you deserved it?
Or you tolerated it as the dynamic had somehow become that the other person’s convenience/complacency was some kind of vital asset?
It’s immaterial whether the revelation regards a micro or macro issue, business or personal – the recognition is the point.
At the same time, Mercury + Venus and Uranus in sync are flippy and fun, although they also favor shrugging off the status-quo. I had a ridiculously Uranian moment. I was snipping some nettle under the nearly Full Moon for an aspirational botanical cuisine experiment. Naturally I mused on the medieval astro-physician’s thoughts on nettle as a Mars tonic, whether or not you could purchase druidic silver sickles and more diffuse neo-hippy sensations.
Inside, I blanched the leaves with boiling water to take out the sting and added the leaves to the meal: Noticing flashes of yellow, I thought they were flowers but no -they were caterpillars, still semi-alive after their ordeal. This totally killed my Gaia buzz.
Failed-Buddhist-style guilt gave way to a fleeting fantasy of a lifestyle sans plants: I was a concrete heiress living on the 11th floor with just one plant, an orchid so valuable it was cared for by my investment team – no dust, algae or caterpillars.
Mars In Virgo Power Googling
I spun out of that pretty quickly and did some Mars-in-Virgo power-googling and briefly obsessed on that the fact these caterpillars were destined to become moths, not butterflies, was symbolically significant. I posed a pathetic question to the algorithm – something like “are moths considered inferior to butterflies for mythological reasons or butterflies better looking” and got appropriately flaccid results.
Then I realized that the meaning was clear – new rule: never harvest anything in the dark, not even with moonlight. My cuisine experiment was done for the evening but I had the insight.
Never Harvest Anything In The Dark
Speaking of experiment, did you see the very Jupiter-Neptune news that arrived with that alignment? Scientists announced that they’ve found the pivotal W-Bosun particle was heavier than they thought, contradicting their fundamental theory of how the universe works. Jupiter anything always has more heft than you think it should and the discovery speaks to both the Jupiterian knowledge-quest and the fathomless mysteries of Neptune.
So how has your Jupiter-Neptune experience been? Did you discover something was bigger than you’d thought and while it’s up-ended your pet theories, it’s led you into a more profound line of thought? Or are you Moon-tripping?
