Like a bow being drawn back, over the next day and a half we will experience the tension building towards the Sagittarius First Quarter Square happening with other powerful configurations, which will indubitably make this Friday an eventful one. Conjunct our fiery moon will be Mars and Saturn, giving extra ooomph to the Saturn/Neptune Square … with Jupiter moving into Libra and Mercury retrograding going on in the background.
Leading up to the Square that peaks on Friday September 9, 2016 at 4:48 am Los Angeles, 12:48 pm London, and 9:48 pm Sydney, we remain in the ‘Struggle Phase’. A time where through listening and deliberate actions, we integrate the new in with the old. This commonly results in the experience of a struggle and creates the opportunity for healing.
After projecting our intentions during a powerful Virgo Solar Eclipse (New Moon) at the beginning of this lunar cycle and projecting our emotions into the Libra Moon in the days that followed, be they intentional or otherwise (for unbeknownst to many, whatever we focus our attention on and emote greatly during a new moon becomes our intention), over the next day or so, we will encounter instances of perceived breakdowns. That are doors to breakthroughs.
For you see, once set in motion, there is an unofficial universal law that pulls toward and/or reveals to us that which impedes our intended future. It’s like a universal authority that’s saying ‘you want that … well, things have to shift’ and ultimately those ‘things’ are rooted in our beliefs. Our life experience is nothing more than a projection of our beliefs and when we transform our beliefs … what was once not working, becomes open to new possibilities.
The challenge exists in uncovering the beliefs and letting go of attachments to anything/one that breaks away during said ‘shift’. For it is when we hang on … that we suffer.
Lucky for us, or maybe not so lucky, every lunar transit our beliefs manifest in our lives through the interplay between the sun (conscious) and moon (subconscious) energies. Right now the sun is in Virgo and the moon is in Sagittarius.
The sun is the source of energy, forming our conscious mind, and while in the mutable earth of Virgo, we take life a bit more seriously and seek to improve. There is a good capacity for rational analysis – the ability to pull something apart into its component pieces, see how they fit or work, and then put them back together again, most often in a more refined or improved version.
The moon is the conduit to the subconscious and is activated by the sun’s energy to shape our perceptions from the beliefs stored in that space. Those beliefs have been planted there every new moon throughout our lives (history) by our energetic state and what we were emoting. Both on an individual and collective level.
Collectively, the subconscious experience of Sagittarius is restless, we are active, our mood is adventurous, and we experience life first hand. We are drawn into motion, guided by instinct, and optimism. Truth is felt/expressed directly, we connect the dots, and the big picture comes into form. We gain ground. We keep things light.
Remember, individually all of the energies you experience are focused through the imprint made at your birth by the presence of planets, their aspects, and the house placement within each sign … from both the sun (Virgo) and the moon (Sagittarius). The resonance of that energy is determined by your beliefs, emoted with each new moon, whether they were created intentionally, or not.
What was happening in your life last December 11th, 2015? What were your dominant emotions? What beliefs are you encountering … right now?
These energetic influences are yours to RECREATE by who you are being in your conscious mind (Virgo Sun – your truth) and your responses to unconscious perception (Scorpio Moon – your visions) as the moon is NOW in the sign of Sagittarius. You are intentionally shaping your experience and have access to bring your energetic being into alignment with a higher state … by being conscious of the energies at play and intentionally shifting who you’re being!
Events over the next several days will reveal your beliefs through what is playing out in your life. Giving you an opportunity to be responsible for them, forgive yourself and others, and intentionally transform them through the activity of this Struggle Phase. Yes, it is called ‘struggle’ for a reason … you’re not imagining the disruptions.
To receive the most out of this phase, keep your heart and mind open to the universe revealing the beliefs you have that stand between you and the fulfillment of your intentions. These are at the core of every ‘struggle’. Review your assets and find what within you will help you to thrive. Stay present to the commitment behind your intention and plan for action … which will be here with the Sagittarius First Quarter Moon on Friday.
A word of warning, there are many other astrological alignments occurring while the moon transits these Sagittarius energies, which offer us additional opportunities to transform our subconscious through BEING intentional.
