Gibbous Moon Phase: trust

Moon in Libra

Ruling Mahavidya: Chinnamasta and Kali

Skill: wise owl inside a tree peering out

Negative Imprint: pounding

Positive Imprint: grounding

Today’s energy is unprecedented!  The Grand Cross of Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter, and Mars is heavily re-activated with the addition of Mercury and the Moon.  Pluto stations retrograde, joining fellow retrograder Mars, and sending things spinning.  The energy also prefaces a Total Lunar Eclipse, the much-hyped Blood Moon.  All of this is astrology speak for a massive day today.

This imprint of energy is pounding things.  People can feel pounded, situations in our lives can feel like they are pounding us down.  It’s heavy, heavy energy.  It’s full of transformation and change, but it presses things into existence.  It can feel forced.  In many ways it is forced upon us.

The energy also brings out the exaggeration of masculine archetypal themes.  This runs from hyper-aggressive to hyper-protective.  Interactions between males prove insightful today, as the sacred masculine overrules.  (This is evident also from the victory of the “sacred masculine” in Nevada at the cattle ranch  Look what happens when we peacefully empower ourselves.)

Days when planets station retrograde are crazy.  Pluto is a powerhouse planet in that it delivers palpable celestial mechanics.  It works at the deepest levels to promote transformation.  It takes us down, down, down.

To work with this, we facilitate change instead of resisting change.  We follow what is being called forth from within us.  The stirrings in our hearts are loud.  They come from an ancient place inside.  This is what we anchor ourselves to while strong energy prevails.  Like wise old owls, we are nestled deep in trees peering out.

The only thing I’d like to mention about tonight’s Full Moon/total lunar eclipse is that it is the fullest expression of the energy in place at the New Moon in Aries on March 30.  What is “seeded” at the New Moon comes to “full” expression at the Full Moon.  There is unprecedented hype with this eclipse.  This is the time of year (Easter) when the more esoteric of the new world order cabal’s members become active.  Potential for dramatic shows and false flags is high.  Conditions are ripe for ugliness, so that means we amp up loveliness.

We are maintaining grounding (connection) with the planet in the midst of this pounding.  This is as simple as putting focus on nature.  When the energy gets heavy, turn away and turn toward nature.  Let the changes swirl.  Remember that you are a part of something much greater than yourself, playing your own part.
