This full Moon makes a positive connection with Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Gemini, offering us the opportunity to let go of old beliefs that no longer serve life and finding new expressions of the natural laws of life; such as, in times of chaos and change, it is always wise to connect with like-minded individuals who share your vision. The full Moon also makes a challenging square to Saturn in Scorpio, bringing into play old emotional wounds which can knock us off-center. The best way to use the energy of this square is to acknowledge the wounds and release them, retaining the lessons you've learned from them. If we transform emotional trauma into emotional awareness, we can better deal with learning to work as a group while standing in our own personal power.
Both Jupiter and the asteroid Vesta turn direct in the next week. Jupiter symbolizes expansion, curiosity and faith. Vesta, the goddess of the hearth-fires, symbolizes our inner truth, as well as focus and commitment to that truth. When planets turn direct, their energies go out into the world with renewed purpose. Jupiter direct urges us to think and act with confidence, moving our goals forward now. Vesta will give us the focus and commitment to make it happen.
The Sabian symbol for Jupiter turning direct at 7* Gemini is: A well with bucket and rope under the shade of a majestic tree. Here indeed is an image of sustaining life with the deep waters of the unconscious and the tree of life guarding it. Let your faith be in the power of life.
The Sabian symbol for Vesta turning direct at 20* Gemini is: A modern cafÃ© displays an abundance of food, products of various regions. Vesta can help us assimilate new ideas and nourishment by keeping us centered on our inner values, helping us discern what is important to assimilate and what is irrelevant.
It's time for us to clarify our vision and set our goals on the future. On February 2 -- which is America's GroundHog Day, or Candlemass or Imbolc -- set aside time to re-imagine your goals for this year. When our vision is clear, we have a better idea of where we're going.
