Daily Energetic Analysis During the Time of Enlightenment

Full Moon: illumination, realization, shadows
The Snowy Owl is pictured to represent the stance advised today: stone cold still. A frosty energy accompanies the Full Moon/Penumbral Lunar Eclipse today. It holds the power to freeze us in our tracks. But if we are already stone cold still, the frostiness will just move around us.
A penumbral lunar eclipse is when part of Earth’s shadow falls over the Moon. This type of eclipse only dims the Moon. The eclipse will be most visible over clear European, African, and the Middle Eastern skies, with a slight chance for sighting on the East Coast of the US. Peak visibility is listed at 7:50 pm ET.
The degree of the Full Moon is 26 Aries – “a man possessed of more gifts than he can hold.” This energy brings deeply ingrained imprinting. It’s power is attested by the conjunction with Eris at 23 Aries and the reactivation of Uranus in Aries and its opposition to the New Moon on October 4. This Full Moon phase is the fullest extension of energy present back at the New Moon. New becomes Full.
In order to receive more of the gifts of enlightenment the universe is designed to deliver with this Full Moon (i.e. “posess” more of them), we need to hold still.
This is wonderful except we have forces that stand to derail anything of this nature and in fact, desire to twist it inside out for their own purposes. It’s a stellar opportunity for imprinting the collective experience of life with negativity. So we stand counter to that by holding still and holding space. When we are stone cold still we expect the unexpected and are protected from it based on our stance. The Snowy Owl’s wing folds around as a shield.
Possessing more gifts than one can hold means there is abundance. While standing stone cold still, we see abundance. We see the abundance of life. This is our steely focus today. Abundant opportunity and potential is visible.
(On the mundane level, today’s energy carries themes involving relationships – especially love triangles and intimate partner violence; exposure of the past; feeling overwhelmed, uncontained, and anxious; insomnia; restlessness, attention deficiencies; racism; encounters with the shadow sides of ourselves and others; and most of all FREEDOM v. SLAVERY.)
