Full Moon 19 April 2019 – Pride Comes Before a Fall

The full moon on Friday, 19 April 2019 at 29° Libra is opposite Uranus. This means your need for change, excitement or freedom could make you restless and impulsive. Unexpected events and unpredictable behavior could add much tension to close relationships.

A full moon occurs when the sun is opposite the moon. This highlights opposing forces or polarities in your life such as your work versus home, or what you need versus what you want. Inner tension and external pressures can lead to personal conflict and crises that drain your energy. Your home, family and intimate relationships comes into sharper focus following a full moon.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. Use you increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

The strongest influence on a full moon is always sun opposite moon which brings relationship into focus. The next strongest influence on this upcoming full moon is Uranus. Sun conjunct Uranus puts the focus on your need for change, excitement and independence. It brings excitement, unexpected change and freedom. You should feel a strong urge to break free from routine, doing something totally different from your normal activities. But with Moon opposite Uranus, unexpected changes and upsetting disruptions could bring restlessness and nervous tension.

Flexible and open-mindedness will increase the likelihood of more pleasant surprises and thrilling experiences. But if this impulsive energy affects your ego, you could take unnecessary risks or rebel against authority. Aggressive reaction and conflict may follow, with danger to yourself and your reputation.

Moon opposite Uranus can cause emotional upsets and relationship turmoil. Impulsive reactions and emotionally based decisions could turn a minor drama into total chaos. So take extra care when making important decisions, especially about relationships.

A strong need for independence can also be a strongly disruptive force. Unexpected events, mood swings or emotional detachment can put a lot of strain on your home and family as well as intimate relationships.

The full moon quincunx Venus increases your need for love and affection but also increases relationship tension, especially involving women. Tension rises because of an imbalance involving emotional support and love. The amount of loved received is not the same as the amount given.

Seeking satisfaction elsewhere would involve secrecy and the risk of being caught. Emotional comfort may even be sought in sweet food or drugs. Even if you don’t have any problems with others, you could still experience an internal imbalance involving self-love and self-image.

Karmic imbalances may be related to a family member, possibly your mother. Addressing unresolved issues from this relationship is the key to resolving other challenging imbalances in your life. An interfering or overly possessive mother is one challenge you may have to face. Infidelity, addiction or health issues are other possible sources of relationship tension that you may need to deal with.

Asteroid Hybris conjunct the full moon warns against foolish pride, overconfidence and arrogance. Keep this in mind if your ego begins to get carried away by Uranus excitement and impulsiveness. “Pride comes before a fall.”

The April 2019 full moon also highlights relationship imbalances involving emotional support and love. Asteroid Hybris conjunct the full moon calls for compassion and humility to replace overconfidence and arrogance.

A full moon has a relationship to the previous new moon. The goals you made during the new moon on 5 April can now be fine-tuned or completed, it is harvest time. You can make emotional adjustments in response to those new goals. The April full moon lasts for two weeks up to the new moon on 4 May 2019.

April Full Moon calls for Truth, Choice and Action

An image of a beautiful full moon background

This month appears to be rather interesting with many cosmic ups and downs, twists and turns, eccentric insights, and changes and reversals that will definitely keep you on your toes. The themes of Truth, Choice and Action create a channel for transformation that is much like the birth canal. The only way out is by going through it and there is no going back.

:: Truth comes as an inner knowing not yet defined.
:: Choice is the emotional commitment that needs no explanation or reason.
:: Action is the disciplined follow-through that anchors a new path.

We often think of truth as something connected to our thoughts and intellect, something we can define and explain, but truth in this context is a fuller knowing and more of an insight that does not yet have a mental definition. Truth will come from an intuitive reaction that precedes understanding and will have to be trusted as authentic. This is challenging as truth is very personal and your truth will not be everyone’s experience.

It is important to claim your own truth at the same time allowing others to claim theirs without judgment.

The monkey wrench in all of this is the deceptive quality or the artisan creative energy we have as an underlying theme for the year. This energy supports possibilities for manipulating ‘truth’ to feed the ego and the desires of the false personality.

If your truth is not coming from a place of neutrality and essence but rather from a place of motivation by one of the seven obstacles (Greed, Self–Destruction, Arrogance, Self-Deprecation, Impatience, Martyrdom, Stubbornness) then you are vulnerable to some deception. You will also need to watch for others throwing their ‘truth’ at you that is clearly motivated by ego and full of self-deception.

Any truth that seems to have a neat little definition and explanation is probably compromised by machinations of the false personality.

Watch for projection as a high probability this month and set some good boundaries against taking anything personally that comes at you from others. This goes for your personal behavior as well. Claim your truth but don’t project it onto others. Make sure your truth is motivated by essence and not your false personality.

Choice will follow an insight or inner knowing as the commitment of the heart to make a change or to proceed in a certain direction. This is also an intuitive process that requires trust in your personal truth that is driving the choice.

Action is what follows as the confirmation of your choice. If your truth is an insight that a relationship is not right for you, and the choice is to make a change, then the action step is to physically complete the ending of that relationship. There is a saying, ‘talk is cheap’ and actions speak louder than words. So, you will need to step it up this month and be disciplined about following through with your choices and decisions.

If you don’t follow through with action because of fear, doubt, ambivalence, or worry about what others may think, you may get lost in the limbo place of not being able to move forward.

Mercury Retrograde March 2019 ~ Wings Of Wisdom (Marina)

We have a Mercury retrograde from 6 to 29 March 2019 in Pisces.
Generally though, the traditional advice with Mercury retrograde is “Don’t travel, Don’t sign contracts. Don’t marry. Don’t touch electrics!” However, the whole Mercury retrograde cycle actually lasts eight weeks and happens three times, sometimes even four times in a year! That’s a long time to hide under the duvet and a real waste of a truly magical time. Mercury generally zips between two worlds, or rather, the two hemispheres of our brain.

Effects of a Lunar Eclipse (Tanaaz)

A total lunar eclipse happens when the earth’s shadow falls directly over the full moon. For a brief period, the moon disappears and the night turns dark. In ancient times, it was believed that this darkness was a sign of great change and a bad omen for what was to come. These beliefs have created superstitions around lunar eclipses, some of which are still observed today, most of them seem to stem from the fact that the dark night and shadow on the moon brings an ominous feeling.

Dark Moons and New Moons

There is often confusion between “Dark Moon” and “New Moon”, with the phrases often being used interchangeably, even on calendars. Yet, as each moon has its own unique energies, understanding the lunar cycle properly can be crucial to the timing of ritual work that focuses on drawing upon those energetic qualities.

February- Month of Renewal

Following on from the Full Moon lunar eclipse that was witnessed at the end of January, this coming week, we will experience a partial solar eclipse.  A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, obscuring view of the sun from our vantage point here on earth.  With this event being  “partial” eclipse, this means that the sun will only be obscured partially.

Although this eclipse probably will not be able to be visible from Adelaide (we will have to wait until July before we can witness a partial solar eclipse), it will be visible in southern South America, in particular Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay, and even in Antarctica.  This does not mean however that its energies will not effect us, because they will, regardless of whether we can witness the event or not.

So what does this partial solar eclipse mean energetic wise?

A New Year and Many New Moons

As I write this, we are already a fortnight in of this new year, which, in esoteric numerology equates to not only a “2” year, but a Master year of “11/2”.

“2” is the number of cooperation, sensitivity towards others, association and balance.  Master numbers relate to an additional potency in energy allowing for a higher achievement of the base number, which is considered to be achieved only through the action of higher service, ie for the benefit of mankind.  With this  in mind, “11” relates to the power of “1” but on a higher vibrational (or spiritual) level, ie, inspiration, illumination, and revelation.

2018 is described as the year to be “patiently open to receive”, where, according to the Astrology Club, opportunities will present themselves to us where we will be “invited to work with our passion and sense of belonging particularly as these qualities spring from our urge to create”.  Throughout the coming year we will be shown the way in which we are to channel this energy, at all times, however, we need to keep in mind to utilise these openings in ways that will enable us to actually contribute to the better world that we yearn to see.
