Venus and Mars, the ruler of the Sun and the Full Moon, are forming a conjunction in Virgo with both planets in semi-square aspect to Ceres in Leo, combining values and efforts in this service-oriented sign so that we commit us wholeheartedly to our purpose as the cycle climaxes.
A Full Moon in Aries highlights the relationship axis, asking us to reconcile Self-awareness with Other-awareness through our interactions in which we assert who we are and demonstrate how we relate to others. We’re confronted by an imbalance in this regard, which we need to assess and correct.
With the Libra Sun at the apex of a Yod to Pallas and Neptune, we’re caught in a dilemma, where we have to make a choice (Mercury is catching up to the Sun for their superior conjunction, which is the Full Moon phase of their synodic cycle), weighing whether to continue with tried and used strategies or politics or letting go off them entirely and reorient ourselves in order to be able to meet our higher ideals and values and see our vision coming true. Moreover, we have to ask ourselves, if our hopes and dreams we had in this regard were just mere fantasies or ‘ghosts’ we were chasing and for which we kept sacrificing only to be disappointed or disillusioned and thus should rather abandon them altogether. We might vacillate between these alternatives, yet sooner or later a decision has to be made.
As the Libra lunation cycle culminates into the Aries Full Moon, the impulse that sounded forth at the time of the Aries New Moon back at the end of March also comes to fruition. In the symbolical language of the Sabians we get this story: ‘The bald-headed man, who has seized power’ (Sabian Symbol for the Libra New Moon), is experiencing ‘adolescent frustration’ (keyword of the Sabian Symbol for the Aries Full Moon), because ‘an unexploded bomb reveals an unsuccessful social protest’ (Sabian Symbol for the Aries FM) – his decision to enforce his will (‘power of the will’ was the keyword for the Sabian Symbol for the Libra NM) was ‘an immature evaluation of the possibility to suddenly transform the status quo’ (keynote of the Sabian Symbol for the Aries FM).
Consequently, we failed to ‘protect ourselves’ – we weren’t ‘sensitive’ to the trends (winds) and have been ‘misguided’ (keywords of the Sabian Symbol for the Aries NM). Therefore, ‘the large woman’s hat with streamers blown by an east wind’ (Sabian Symbol for the Aries NM from March) has been replaced by ‘children blowing soap bubbles’ (Sabian Symbol for the Libra Sun) – our longing for power and our dreams of fulfillment have been turned into ‘soap bubbles’. This doesn’t mean they won’t fly.
The long-standing Uranus-Neptune semi-square shows that it is to difficult to make progress when we don’t know what we can expect or what is expected of us and thus, don’t have a clue how to proceed under these conditions.
However, we cannot waver in our dedication, but have to be diligent. We’re standing at the beginning of a new synodic cycle during which we have a chance to harness the energies to their fullest potential to have them serve our purpose (Venus conjunct Mars in Virgo semi-square Ceres in Leo). A Grand Trine in fire between Saturn in Sagittarius, Eris Rx in Aries and the North Node in Leo encourages a more mature and professional self-promotion and the understanding that we’re co-creators of our destiny.
This is a lesson in Selfhood that teaches us to grow into our own authority so that we can fulfill our highest potential and become the stars of our own show. All it requires is to do the ‘inner work’ (Venus in Virgo) in tandem (conjunct) with the ‘output effort’ (Mars in Virgo) and then we’re set to succeed.
The Sabian Symbol for the Moon at 12:42 Aries states:
“An unexploded bomb reveals an unsuccessful social protest. Keynote: An immature evaluation of the possibility of transforming suddenly the status quo – ADOLESCENT FRUSTRATION.”
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at 12:42 Libra states:
“Children blowing soap bubbles. Keynote: The cultural fantasies through which young minds dream of perfect fulfillment – IMAGINATIVE PLAY.”
