This full moon has me so excited.
Before we get to that, I have to mention that this Mercury retrograde has tested all of us. Did the glitches get to you, or did you weather the storm? It’s over March 28th–coming soon to your neighborhood.
Now here comes a full moon with a theme worthy of our attention. Sun in Aries (spring is desperate to find us) and then, as you might know with every full moon, the Moon is exactly opposite the Sun. The Moon is in Libra (where we practice our wit and put on our best jewelry). Fire (Aries) plus Air (Libra) is a party waiting to happen. This is why I personally love this full moon; the energy is exciting.
Talk about parties… I just had the most interesting thought process with an Aries. I had the honor of listening to a philosopher speak. His name, believe it or not, is Tim Freke (pronounced ‘freak’). He is an Englishman and an Aries.
I don’t know if this ever happens to you, but while he was speaking, I was secretly struggling in my head to figure out his chart–to understand the wild meanderings of his thoughts–which leads straight into the topic of this full moon.
He had an adventurous mind. I find anyone with Mercury at zero degrees is often a wildly independent thinker (you need to know your chart to see if you are in the club). Mr Freke’s Mercury was just entering Taurus–but you couldn’t tell.
His conversation was wild. He said we were sound asleep if we didn’t realize that this was the most profound time to be alive. He was an optimist beyond compare. He said if only we knew how life was 100 years ago, we would realize we were living like kings and queens. His fire was screaming: look up as you focus on the magic. This universe is riddled with love oozing at its center–if only we can find it.
So when this full moon in Libra screams at you, wakes you up in the night, energizes you and has you feeling more alive, try pretending that you too are a radical optimist. That you believe in love and it’s at the core of this reality. That this life is being organized by a force that is benevolent and essentially creative and beautiful. I love his theory.
For example, he was so excited we lived in a time where women and men could study together in the same room with no restriction. He was celebrating how lucky we are–when a women in the room spoke up and said: “Easy for you to say as white English man…”
But he didn’t get the typical Aries response to defend, fight and argue, he just gave her umpteen ways to see his point. He was fighting for love, peace, and his optimism. He displayed a very healthy version of Aries male energy.
This is the theme of this month. Without sounding too Pollyanna… what if you just thought this life was evolving and whether it was Trump and our American politics, or Brexit, all that was happening was in service to evolution?
Is evolution friendly? Is it kind? Will we as a species endure this giant change cycle? He had the longest answer when I finally said: just say yes or no. He went again but I did my own synopsis. I am, in honor of this feisty energized full moon going to say: Yes. Evolution is kind and on our side!!!
I am doing what I am asking you to do. Live this month with the attitude it’s all going great. I love this Aries line: In the end it all works out. If it’s not all worked out yet, it’s not the end.
Haha. Let’s practice positive thinking for one month and see if we can do it. “Gravity and negativity,” he said, “are well worn pathways in our collective psyche.” I am willing to try to be an Aries/Libra and make it a smiley month… how about you?
