Much of your pain is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
Originating at the seed moment of The New Moon in Aquarius on the 28th of January 2017, this Full Moon shows the culmination, the understanding of the cycle, what we can harvest from this period. Originating in the first decan of Aquarius, which is associated with The Five of Swords, this particular lunation has been concerned with looking at how our fear of defeat might affect our approach to life, how it might limit us, and how the illusion of control that our fear gives us may actually be keeping us prisoner in our own lives. The card of Adjustment walks the Kabbalah path between Hod (5’s) & Tippareth (6’s) and this is the key energy that we will have needed to employ in order to arrive at the sense of understanding and objectivity that is offered in The Six of Swords at this Full Moon.
It is more likely that you will now be able to see more clearly where the ruts in your life are, and how fear may have kept you in them. A new insight into your life may be gained at this time, enabling you to gain an overview over your situation, and to see a pathway out, a passage to safety and calm. Moreover, this phase talks of the severance of relationships that fall beneath the standards that you need to have for yourself, and to live a life that is congruent to the dictates of your heart.
Although not visible at all in the America’s, and only partially in Europe, this Full Moon is also an Eclipse, so is therefore spoken of as having a stronger effect astrologically. Eclipses both lunar and solar are considered to be trigger points for people who have planets or angles at the same degree in their natal chart. At this Lunar Eclipse The Moon will be in fifteen degrees 25 of Aquarius, and The Sun in fifteen degrees 25 of Leo. The eclipse chart has Pluto rising, in square aspect to Jupiter, suggesting that for anyone whose chart is strongly affected may experience matters concerning control, breakdown and justice coming to a head around now. Understanding and wisdom will arise in time from a standpoint of perhaps allowing things that have been blowing up an subsiding for some time, to finally pass out of your life.
