As the Full Moon approaches (it's exact tomorrow, May 23) do you find yourself racing toward a single goal, or too split in your priorities to make a move? Or are you dancing your way through the week? If you're dancing, how would you describe the dance?
I wasn't expecting to feel so ungrounded now that the Sun has been in my sign -- earthy, sensual, steady Taurus -- since Friday. But this spring has been pretty amped up since it started. With a Full Moon, a stormy Mercury, and more thrown into the mix, there's a reminder here to discern what's really yours and listen to your body's clues.
During the two weeks between a pair of eclipses life can feel like it speeds up or takes a sharp turn. You may be asked to notice what you no longer need to stay attached to, to choose your next step toward your vision with intention, and to stay loose enough to roll with the unexpected. Mercury stationing retrograde April 1 is adding some "interest" to the process.
Preparing for eclipses is like approaching rapids while paddling a kayak on a river: the more you can intentionally point your kayak in the same direction as the current, the easier it is to flow with it toward your intended destination with minimal turbulence. Hopefully these horoscopes will help you do just that.
As we approach the Virgo Full Moon, consider: are you really communicating as directly as you could be, and are you listening as sensitively as you could be? If you think about how you're feeling in response to someone else, is there a discrepancy between your needs/desires/expectations and what's being offered to you?
Each time I've thought about tomorrow's Full Moon or looked at the chart, some other layer of meaning has come to mind. Right now, I'm thinking about the ways it illustrates a situation I find myself in: one person's strong emotions (a mix of will, compassion, passion, and perhaps ego) running up against the shared vision of a small group in the question of how to reinvent ourselves to best serve a wider collective.
Tonight's Cancer Full Moon perfectly describes emotions overflowing their usual banks, just like the marsh I drove by this morning. No matter what today's emotional tides have carried into your awareness, know that the intensity should subside soon even if there's still much you need to deal with.
Every once in a while my subconscious presents a dream while I am sleeping that is basically a symbolic mini-movie of some facet of current astrology and its relationship to my life. Last night I had one such dream.
Giving some focused energy in the direction you want to travel during the "disruption" of an eclipse can help new pathways and patterns to take shape more clearly and tangibly. Here are your horoscopes to help you make sense of the current moment and act with intention.
What are you handling well right now? Conversely, is there anything (from situations to machines) that feels like it's breaking down completely? Today's Sun-Pluto contact offers a key mid-eclipse-zone push and opportunity to check in with yourself.
