Astrology Update, April 29th, 2018, Full Moon in Scorpio (Pink Moon): Emotional Power

Today’s Full Moon in Scorpio brings into bloom the seeds of intention sown at the New Moon in Aries two weeks ago. The fiery and impetuous ambition of Aries is With the Sun in Taurus trining Saturn today, this creates a Triangle of Potential with the Full Moon that heightens awareness of our deepest emotions on a remarkably practical level, and asks us to commit to the long-term process of uncovering our inner mysteries and applying the insights gained to our ongoing journey of growth and achievement in the material world.

With both Scorpio’s classical ruler Mars and Scorpio’s transcendental ruler Pluto conjunct in Saturn’s home sign of Capricorn, the intensity of this Full Moon is both amplified and grounded. We may find ourselves coming face-to-face with our obsessions and compulsions in ways we never have before, gaining a new understanding of just what drives us, and how we can make use of the hitherto hidden forces within us in pursuit of our dearest goals.

With this Moon squaring the North Node in Leo, the depth of our feelings now can be of profound service to our souls’ growth, if we are willing to face the fears and insecurities that Saturn sextile the Moon dredges up regarding our path in the material world. Because that sextile and the trine between Saturn and the Sun are both harmonious and involving steadying Earth signs, we are better equipped to examine and understand even our most complex and troubling feelings within these realms.

Jupiter in Scorpio is still sextile to the Pluto/Mars conjunction, so the power and drive that we have at our disposal now is a force to be reckoned with, and our sense of faith, optimism, and purpose are stregthened now. Though we are all-too-often afraid of our own power, now we find ourselves in the best possible position to embrace our inner strength and all of the emotional complexity within us, and shape our world in ways we never previously dared to imagine.

Tarot for January 23rd, 2017: Power

Today’s Tarot card is the 4 of Disks, Power.

The 4 of Disks is in the realm of the Sun in Capricorn, the cardinal earth sign that governs career and reputation in the world via the 10th house.  Cardinal signs are all about initiatory energy, which is known more for starting things than for finishing them.  Nevertheless, of all the signs Capricorn is most known for its tenacity in pursuit of its goals and perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.  Like the goat that is its symbol, Capricorn takes as many small steps as necessary to climb the mountain.  Of all the cardinal signs, it is most able to complete long journeys because it is most aware that they are all comprised of those small steps, and every single step contains the possibility of a new beginning.  Weary on your journey?  Rest for a while, but that rest does not mean that the journey is over.  Capricorn will begin over and over and over again for as long and as often as is necessary to get the job done.

What does this mean in the context of the 4 of Disks?  In the Thoth deck’s version of this card, we see a fortress with each of its four towers bearing an alchemical symbol for a different element.  The fortress ties in all four elements and all four directions together.  The 4 of Disks is about laying foundations in order to create the structure that we desire for our lives.  In a way, this mirrors the mission of Capricorn’s opposite sign, Cancer, which is all about creating safe space for emotions.  In the case of the 4 of Disks, we are concerned with creating the space in which to enact our goals, drawing upon all four elements, all four directions, and all of our resources to lay the foundation for the structure of our lives and thus create space for our own personal power to flourish.

With Pluto currently transiting Capricorn, the lessons of this card are driven home further.  Pluto is deeply concerned with power.  But Pluto is particularly good at revealing the illusions that we have surrounding power.  Too many of us are convinced that power is about control over our lives and those of others around us.  Pluto knows that control is an illusion, and true power is not power over, but power within.  Power over does not like to be shared – it is hoarded by autocrats like so much candy, so much money, so many imaginary numbers on a screen.  And like candy hoarded and eaten alone, it sickens.  Power within is not diminished by being shared.  Power within is not displaced or denied by changing circumstances – it weathers storms and time alike.  Rather than becoming cancerous through endless, frantic pursuit of growth and short-term profit, true power is calm and steady, taking the long view and recognizing the benefits of sheltering many, working together in pursuit of common goals.  This is not a grandiose castle, nor a delicate one.  It protects all within its walls, and it will not be toppled.

What castles are we building now?  It will take time and perseverance, a clear vision of our goals and the community we wish to nourish and strengthen within our castle walls, and the foresight to draw upon all elements and resources available to us.  Now is the time to lay our foundations carefully.
