Can you feel the pull of the depths? The energies are no longer supporting superficial levels of relating. We are being asked to remove the masks and bond at deep levels with OTHER. The fiery, self-starting activity of the past 2 weeks now comes to a place of culmination. The Sun, Mars and Venus are now in the sensual and peace-loving sign of Taurus, and at the full moon, they all oppose the Moon and Saturn in Scorpio. Outer planets Pluto and Neptune weave their supportive trans-personal and evolutionary energies into the mix. There is complexity, here..powerful emotional undercurrents, the urge to merge with others, hearts ready to be opened and the sense that we can only go so far with our endeavors without the reflection that is provided by others. The eclipse brings even more intensity to this full moon and asks us to open up to a new era of our capacity to be transformed through intimacy with others. The events unfolding now will touch us deeply. Our relationships will be fueled with more desire from the depths of our souls. At this time, we can see that not only devotion, passion and desire go towards creating an enriching bond, but also intention, structure and a willingness to look at what needs to be released in order for an even more refined vision of the relationship to evolve. The planets in Taurus show a great need for stability, physical affection, sensual pleasures and peace, while the Scorpio planets seek change, intensity, passion and extremes of emotional experience that ignite healing and evolution. A balance must be struck. We cannot have one side without the other. Each of us will come to our own insights about where we are with others in our lives. For some, there may be a realization that the current relationships do not support the deeper sense of where you are headed at this time, and it may be time to say goodbye. For others, it may be a time of exploring new depths of being within a potential new relationship. It can also be a time of finding new depths of fulfillment within existing relationships. No matter where you are in your exploration of INTIMACY and OTHER, reflect deeply on the MYSTERY OF RELATIONSHIP. Let this eclipsed full moon bring light to your evolutionary path and how that path will always unfold through the spiraling process of relating to your Self through relating to the Other.
