Full Moon Phase – Moon in Scorpio – Partial Lunar Eclipse
Ruling Mahavidya – Chinnamasta
Today’s energy is flavored with feelings of restriction, separation, and distance. Life may seem overwhelming today, problems may feel insurmountable, and answers may seem far away. We can bridge the gulf by remaining patient, recognizing that we are operating in new energy with brand new “wings,” and remembering that Chinnamasta has a way of blowing things out so that they can become better. We also remember that she grants wishes. The other Mahavidyas (Wisdom Goddesses who are personas of Gaia-Sophia, the divine being embodied as our planet) are not as keen to grant wishes, so we appreciate this about Chinnamasta.
Whatever we put in place (or intend) today is magically empowered.
The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse is conjunct Saturn. Saturn brings in control dynamics and orderliness. It is quintessentially archontic and the Archons love Saturnian energy. (They may even “reside” on Saturn.) Full Moon phases are intimately connected to New Moon phases. Whatever is seeded or intended during the New Moon phase comes into special fruition at the Full Moon phase. Recall that the New Moon was conjunct Eris at the Eris Point of 22 Aries. Now we have Saturn conjunct the Full Moon. Eris and Saturn are not friends. They stand diametrically opposed. Energy of opposition is a favorite of these darker forces so there is heightened potential for the continuation of their dark ritual enacted at the New Moon.
Saturn is a drag. It limits, keeps time, tasks, disciplines, orders, and controls. But it also contains, so we can morph the energy to serve us by using it to contain and ground us so that we are not washed away with the strong tide of emotions that accompanies this Full Moon/eclipse. We can use it to maintain our calm.
Don’t try to control anything today. It will only lead to upset.
