A rare Soli-Lunar event opens this week on Sunday the 22nd, a master number: the second of two full moons in Aquarius in a row, this on the last and crucial 29th degree.
Jovial Jupiter joins the Moon, enhancing the cosmic signal.This is a "pay attention" full moon asking us to drink in and integrate the qualities of Justice, Fairness, Open-mindedness, combined with warmth of heart from Leo, the Aquarian counterpart.
As the Sun begins to rise in pristine Virgo on the 23rd, it will join Mercury and Mars who have been clearing a path. This is a signature of Nature's capacity to bring healing through its plant life.
It's time to bring in the harvest from the herb garden. Mars is for cutting..bring sharp, clean shears. Tinctures and teas can be prepared for the coming year, a thoroughly mercurial activity.
The Staff of Mercury is the primary symbol for the healing tradition. The purity of Virgo references the sanctuary where disease was treated, mendicaments applied and restoratives imbibed.
Thank you Mother Earth, Gaia, for your gifts of Natural medicines.
As the week progresses, the Moon disseminates her messages through Pisces, Aries and Taurus. She passes over Neptune, Chiron.
In Taurus she conjoins Uranus, Lord of Aquarius and master change artist. Disruptions and restlessness characterize this meeting. And an intense assessment of what one values most.
Trining the Sun in Virgo, Artemis is invoked. Discernment: what will you carry with you when you must drop your attachments and live on the run in the Forest? Place them by the door. The Call may come.
