This month’s Full Moon in Sagittarius brings with it a ferocious sense of instability and unpredictability. The dramatic undercurrent of shifting and surfacing unconscious emotions and deep psychological patterns are being revealed in our daily lives. A powerful story is unfolding for humanity at this stage with at least one main constant theme: thunderous shocks leading to powerful energetic shifts and transformations. We are in for a time of major transition, and culmination. The question we all face is, how will we respond?
Let’s take a look at how the astrological alignments are reflecting our current evolution.
The energy that is unfolding and expressing itself in our lives right now is bringing some incredible opportunities for spiritual transformation.
Recently, the planet Neptune moved into retrograde motion, together with Pluto and Mars who have both been retrograde for just over 2 months now. These retrogrades brings us great clarity, helping us to getting in touch with and truly see what drives our intentions and desires.
Each of us find ourselves born on Earth with an energetic imprint — our most natural expression — who we are. Along our journey of growing up and figuring it all out, we adopt and assimilate outer ideals, perceptions, hierarchies and beliefs that keep us consumed and entangled. Always asking permission. This leads us to various stages of emotional distress, feelings of loss and dissatisfaction, which ultimately lead to a sense of soul amnesia. We begin to forget who we are.
We do however, receive reminders of this blueprint, at different times and with various degrees of intensity, throughout our Earthly journey.
From an astrological perspective, Neptune’s recent retrograde motion provides a push to search inside of yourself, to uncover the ideas and perceptions you are still holding onto that keep you from feeling more in-the-flow with what really holds meaning and purpose for you. At the same time, both Mars and Pluto’s retrograde motions will bring up deeper, more fundamental truths that are being held onto. As a result, this Full Moon in Sagittarius brings tremendous feelings of emotional unrest and even shock, but only if we are not seeing the underlying reality — the amazing potential that lies ahead of us from this point.
As old realities begin to lose meaning in our lives, we are best served to release, let them go, and create the space for new unknown potentials to unfold. But this can be a tough process, especially as our human biology is designed to seek order. We organize our perception of reality in sequential moments of “time”. We personalise the experience so we are able to individuate our personal lives, in order for us to feel a sense of identity. However we are, unfortunately, also surrounded by powerful and intoxicating distractions and distortions in our outer world, which can leave us with a skewed sense of soulful meaning and awareness of our karmic blueprint.
So, letting go and finding out what really matters for us — in tune with our unique blueprint instead of our social conditioning — can initiate strong feeling of fear and great anxiety. We can feel it in our bodies. Just remember, these states are totally natural, and are connected intimately to our physical bodies; the biology of our brain is reacting to the uncertainty we perceive in our unknown next steps.
The planet Uranus plays a key role and very powerful role in all of this. Albeit that the energy of Uranus and his wizardry is really taking a back seat right now, in terms of how we are truly understanding the intention behind his manifestation. Like thunder echoing in the background, so too does Uranus bring about a tremendous roar — a roar liberation from outdated individual and collective realities, outright illusions and unrealistic ideals. Orchestrating this beautiful symphony of energy manifestations, Uranus’ energy heralds a time where we see beyond the limitations of our previously blind eyes — something that can cause great panic and distress as we see for the first time the true ramifications of our collective and individual denial, the unresolved emotional pain, and the imbalance of the masculine and feminine principles in our collective lives.
With today’s Full Moon, each of us are being called to go deeper — into deeper levels of awareness. Insights and new seeds for human evolution and dreams can begin to come to light, as we embrace the intention that is signified by Uranus. He will bring up all that needs to be flushed out, in any part of our lives that we need to heal and purify. This is a time to look inside and re-organize your life’s direction. This is a time for refocusing what your original intention was — and is — all about.
Returning home is the process of resting, reflecting, and regenerating.
The Full Moon Message: Hiding in Plain Sight
We are born with a complete energetic blueprint which holds within it, not only the totality of our soul’s past evolution which has brought it to this point, but also the total vibrational design for the intended journey of any given lifetime. Energetically speaking, we hold the blueprint for the totality of our life lessons and experiences, the past and the future, fused into a body which embarks on a journey of directly experiencing and evolving through that blueprint. When we are birthed into our physical bodies, we are unconditioned by our human experiences and can therefore be described as an undefined expression of our intention, free to express any aspect of our soul’s vibration in an unlimited way.
In our Earth timeline, we are also born into our karma, which is the experiences we have chosen to evolve — or experience ourselves — through. So as we move through life, expressing our soul’s uniqueness to the totality of our unconditioned capacity, we draw to us experiences which layer our psychology with beliefs, conditions and limitations that our human minds identify ourselves with, and which therefore ultimately begin to limit our expression of self. .
As the human mind needs to decode things in a sequential pattern, and to compile order from the chaos it perceives, our physical lives are experienced as a timeline of past, present and future. But, the mind is just the funnel through which the soul is expressing itself; its wisdom is limited to its experiences and therefore what we know ourselves to be becomes less and less of the totality of who we are, as we move through that timeline — but only if we identify ourselves with those experiences. Despite the perceptions of our own (limited) minds, we are not who we think we are; we are so much more than that! Our experiences are merely revealing aspects of our capacity and sides of our life expression, which serve as clues to where we are in our evolutionary journey back to our unconditioned self — to becoming whole again.
Many of us have been on a path of soul searching, working to identify and heal the wounds of our life experiences and remove the influence of external conditioning from our lives; Trying to mend the relationship to oneself and others; Trying to find love, and to be love. Many of us have been confronting ourselves, our pasts and our limitations in an attempt to find our authentic expression. We have been purifying ourselves of all the untruths of our conditioned reality, on all levels. We have journeyed back in time and revisited parts of our timeline to see how we have changed; how we have evolved.
Now, with that awareness is mind, we are being offered a gift — of clarity amid the chaos, and the culmination of our recent evolutionary timeline. We are finding ourselves; finding our unconditioned, authentic, limitless capacity. And the funny thing is that it has been right there all along. Hiding in plain sight. In our hearts. It is the youngest, simplest expression of ourselves. The timeless, fearless, open, loving, exploring child in you. And now, with the knowledge gained of the world around you, it is time to take that child by the hand and integrate her into the world — to expand the world by her presence.
