The Cosmic Story: Aries/Libra Full Moon 2016

Make Love Not War

Volatile. Tense. Strained. Charged. Explosive. Inflammatory. Turbulent.

This weekend's Full Moon is supercharged by disruptive Uranus, the newly discovered dwarf planet Eris, intense Pluto and assertive Mars. Wow! Explosive energies. Or transformative energies. It's up to us. The Full Moon falls right into the lap of the intense Pluto/Uranus squares of 2012-2015. Have we woken up and

While most of us know about revolutionary Uranus and evolutionary Pluto and their 60s dance, and the always on-demand warrior archetype of Mars, few of us know about this new 2 nd largest dwarf planet in our solar system out beyond Pluto. Named after the Greek goddess Eris who was made famous in Homer's Iliad as the Goddess of Discord, Strife & War. As with all patriarchal myths, we have to dig deeper to see the real goddess energy behind the perceived (by Greek men) energy.

In Homer's tale of the Trojan war, Eris is the sister of Ares, the war god. When she isn't invited to a wedding, she comes anyway and roles a golden apple into the banquet hall where all the Greek gods are celebrating. For the Fairest One it says. Thereby causing Strife among the gods, who turn to a human prince, Paris of Troy, to make their choice between Hera/Power, Athena/Wise Strategy and Aphrodite/Love & Beauty. The human prince chooses Love. And so starts the Trojan War.

Like the 13 th Faerie/witch/wise woman in the fairy tale Briar Rose or The Sleeping Beauty of the Woods, this aspect of the Divine Feminine was rejected by patriarchy, and it will always cause trouble if we don't acknowledge it. This is the feminine warrior who stands up for the truth of our hearts. And when she's ignored and enslaved, she causes strife and discontent . It's a big Shadow coming into clearer view in America at the moment. What kills love quicker than being forced? Aphrodite with her beauty and sexuality has been made to serve all patriarchal systems, and now we see the disease of that rape. Aphrodite's revenge is to cut ourselves and others off from our hearts and souls.

When we 'disconnect from our hearts', we're disconnected from our essential grounding and are plagued by our fears and insecurities. Then we disconnect from others. Through fear's lies and hypocrisy, we create discord and strife, choosing competition, domination and control rather than cooperation, consideration and compromise. And to win what? Money, power, fame--all the things that young prince Paris rejected. And the Beatles sang, " Can't buy me love!"

The core disease of our society is the disconnection between our Heart and our Head.

So the Sacred Marriage of Love and Strength must be consumated within each of us.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
