28th October – Be the Change…..

With a strong and purposeful Full Moon arriving on the 29th October the energies of change are amping up….time to get in gear in readiness, especially as the outer planets are pushing the agenda and feeding the solar drive with numinous charge.

There is here a compulsive feeling that the fulling Moon will reflect back, a confrontation  between the internal rhetoric of our personal idealogies and meaningful action that is reflective of this, in short, a ‘reality check’ reminding each of us of the truth that, ultimately, ‘we are the ones we have been waiting for’.

Just one day before Full Moon the skies are ignited with a potentially incendiary opposition between Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Gemini. The chart for this day presages a powerful culmination of the influences that have come in with the current lunation – if the Libran New Moon opened with a caution to wait and follow the inner guidance available to us, the 3 day period through which the Moon reaches fullness signals the time at which the reasons for action arrive on our radar and push the personal agendas we have been working on with some force. Initially we are likely to register this through internal pressure, the pressure of the acknowledged need for change, but, watch for indications in the outer world, and especially take note of how the world conspires to mirror this back to us, particularly where we encounter language full of fiery and impassioned rhetoric that is encouraging the change we all know needs to happen……

We are unlikely to be able to hold back on actualising our truth now. With both Venus and Mercury changing signs, into Libra and Sagittarius respectively, here we are likely to have full awareness, both in our hearts and minds, of the effects of doing so. Its one of those situations where those effects instantly reveal a change of our own inner landscape, such that we can begin to build new ways of relating to our lives, and the lives of others close to us, in meaningful and beneficial ways.

Before this happens, that is, before we have the necessary courage to release the inner pressure, we will have to encounter the discrepancies between our instinctive desire to uphold our most cherised ideals and philosophy on life and the inner dialogue that tells us that these idealogical reserves are no longer appropriate, and are infact in danger of holding us back.

To bring added pressure to the situation, Sun in Scorpio exactly sextiles Pluto in Capricorn, trines Chiron in Pisces and quincunxes Uranus in Aries. This is the time to accept that our inner truths and our outer reality are emotionally bound up with each other in creating the life we really want to live. However you choose to express yourself now, be wise to the power of your own truth and grasp the courage that it brings you in moving beyond your comfort zone. It may not be easy following the directions they point towards, but, all signs point towards a better world if you do so….

….as the saying goes, ‘be the change that you want to see in the world’!
