Full Moon Phase: experience, illumination, revelation
Ruling Mahavidya: Bhairavi
It’s interesting how past trauma is triggered when the planets, particularly the Sun, return to the same position. This time last year we were in the aftermath of a “turning point” – a major shift in the status of situations, much of which was painful. Our emotions at the time “imprinted” the daily energy, “locking” in to its signature.
For example, the Sun is located at the 28th degree of Leo today. A year ago or so it was at the same degree. Those emotions are still tied into the energy of the Sun at 28 Leo. Even though life is very different today than it was a year ago, our bodies read the energy and respond as if those events were still taking place. This happens at the subtlest and finest levels of the body – our cells. Our cells do a lot of things, much of which happens beyond the boundary of space-time.
We live in an electric universe that operates in a feedback loop. The Sun’s energy returns to itself after completing a circuit through the solar system. Profound emotional trauma becomes coded into the solar energy of any given day. So when an “anniversary” of something rolls around, our bodies “remember” or “re-experience” it to some degree.
The Full Moon last August heralded the end of what I termed “turning point” – a four week long period of intense life changes. We shifted trajectories. If that time was difficult for you, most likely you are feeling a little overwhelmed now, simply by virtue of the energy imprint from that time. This happens so subtlely that we often can’t attribute it to anything tangible, which leaves us feeling at loose ends. We try to figure out what’s causing us to feel a certain way when we are actually reacting to something from the past.
However, the energy is continually re-printed, so whatever we do in the present also configures the energy. Our daily experiences “load” the energy. This time last year was a traumatic shift and right now is a healing transformation. We can focus on the past and the pain there, or we can participate in celestial mechanics and let our hearts be healed now. It’s a matter of shifting from the belief in the need to suffer from the past to the belief in the love for life right now.
With Bhairavi’s work this month to heal heart-traumas, a lot is happening at our cellular levels. We are mentally, physically, and emotionally processing at deep levels. We are having panoramic revelations and realizations. The light of the Full Moon enables us to see fully.
Be gentle with yourself and others today. The harshness of today’s energy is a minor subcurrent from the past – one that we don’t need to add to. The major subcurrent of today’s energy is a wave of beauty and fulfillment that is building toward Shodashi’s cycle. This is what we want to “tack onto” today.
