On September 30th at 3:22 am, GMT, there is a Full Moon on the 7th degree of Aries. This is one of the most explosive Full Moons of the year, because it activates negatively the dynamite-aspect between Uranus and Pluto; an aspect which will be active until 2015 and which heralds radical changes in our world and society! Before going into the meaning of this Full Moon, let us first examine what a Full Moon generally symbolizes. When there is a Full Moon, the Moon is located right across the Sun; consequently, the Spirit, which is symbolized by the Sun, and the Soul, which is symbolized by the Moon, oppose each other. In other words, our emotional needs (Moon) are at odds with our desire for creativity, self-development and self-fulfillment (Sun), which results in emotional tension and outbursts. Furthermore, every Full Moon takes place approximately two weeks after a New Moon, that is, after a new beginning that we made on a personal or collective level. So, the function of the Full Moon is to remind us that there can be no future (Sun) unless we respect our past (Moon). Ideally, every Full Moon calls for re-evaluation of the new beginning that we made at the previous New Moon, so that we can tie up any loose ends.
This coming Full Moon on September 30th takes place on the 7th degree of Aries and participates in the T-Square that occurs between the Sun, Pluto and Uranus. Let us note that there is also a second T-Square between Venus, Mars and Neptune. What does this all mean though? Firstly, all T-Square aspects carry with them a great deal of tension, which is of course exacerbated under a Full Moon. More specifically, the Libra Sun will shed a light onto the importance of our relationships, especially romantic ones. Nevertheless, the opposing Moon in Aries in tight conjunction with Uranus may make for an intense need for us to rebel with the aim of asserting ourselves and claiming that which we consider our own.
However, such a revolutionary mood may put important relationships at serious risk, which though might be necessary for us to be able to rejuvenate these relationships by exposing and removing anything that is putrid in them; this seems to be the message of Pluto’s square with the Sun, the Moon and Uranus. The possibility of the risk mentioned above is especially high for the long-suffering signs of the Cardinal Cross (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) and particularly for those born approximately one week after the beginning of these signs. This is also true for anyone with angles (ascendant or midheaven) or planets near the 7th degree of these same signs.
In line with what I said earlier, this Full Moon occurs with Venus, the planet of relationships and material goods, in an aspect of tension with Mars and Neptune. Unfortunately, this aspect carries much potential for over-valorization (Venus) of violence (Mars) and victimization (Neptune). It may thus be likely that relationships and material goods are quickly sacrificed, perhaps by means of violence. Alternatively, it is likely that some of us will be quick to think that they have found their ideal partner (Mars in square aspect with Venus/Neptune), which, however, might lead quite easily to disappointment once reality hits (Neptune in trine aspect with the Saturn/Mercury conjunction). All these possibilities are all the more relevant for those born at the end of the signs that belong to the Fixed Cross (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) or in the beginning of the signs that belong to the Mutable Cross (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces). Equally affected are those with angles or planets on the last degrees of the fixed signs and the first degrees of the mutable signs.
On a mundane level, every Full Moon carries the potential of behaving like a tight rope, with governments (Sun) and peoples (Moon) on opposite ends. Therefore, it seems that this Full Moon places at center stage the revolutionary and fighting mood of the peoples against their leaders (Moon in conjunction with Uranus in Aries in opposition to the Sun). In turn, the leaders seem to be aiming at maintaining a peace that respects their power (Libra Sun and Leo Venus in mutual reception). Nevertheless, this power may very well be imposed by means of force or deceit, while it might also be that the expression of their power becomes the reason for incidents of violence for religious reasons (T-Square between Venus-Mars-Neptune). Of course, let us not forget that the catalyst of the revolutionary mood of the peoples appears to be the very decay of the financial and political system (Pluto in Capricorn in square aspect with the Sun and the Moon).
One can easily see examples of all of the above in a series of events, ranging from the violent repression of demonstrations in Spain and Hellas against the extreme austerity measures and the political corruption to the vehement Muslim revolts against the film that mocked Mohammed and the protests of the Chinese people against the territory claims made by Japan. In line with my past writings, Pluto in Capricorn is a harbinger of crisis in the greatest financial powers of this world, that is, the United States, the European Union and Japan; this Full Moon lends ample support to my writings, given that the Muslims are protesting against the Americans; the Chinese are protesting against the Japanese; the Greeks and the Portuguese are protesting the unbearable austerity measures required by the European Union, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The outcome of the clash between the peoples and their governments around the world is not known yet. What is known, however, is that the war between the “warriors of Light” (Uranus in Aries) and the “governments of Darkness” (Pluto in Capricorn) will continue until 2015… We wish for the former to be victorious!
