Saturday: First Quarter Moon Phase: action, stepping out, expression
Sunday: Gibbous Moon Phase: analyze, prepare, digest, trust
Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (with Matangi, The Administrator)
I don’t believe I’ve ever seen pictures of auroras that are quite like the one above, taken yesterday by V Joganov in Russia and posted onspaceweather.com. You can see the full picture there.
Wild and crazy energies dominate this weekend. On Saturday, impulsivity is heightened. We want to counter this by not rushing head- first into any situations that we know to be potentially charged with emotion. Plan ahead. Project outcomes and consequences before going in. This is not a day to take a major risk.
Saturday also brings a relentless pounding, Shodashi-style. With this we can either 1) change, do things differently, and grow or 2) stay the same, do nothing differently, and become mired in inertia. If you are locked in a pattern of repetition, the vibratory effects of Shodashi’s drum will shatter it because stagnation is not in our highest interest. Trust that the goddess is working with the highest and best interests of your soul.
Sunday’s energy is infused with the opposition of Mercury and Uranus with Mars making a trine to Uranus, bringing fiery, electric, and sudden events, feelings, communications, and outbursts that seem to well up from the deep. There is a very high potential for anger and aggression to be expressed Sunday. The astrological aspects are happening very close to the degree of the next New Moon. This means that actions taken today will carry strong power into the month of October.
We will need to pay special attention to remaining grounded and holding light in place on Sunday. Picture yourself as part of an array of stakes driven into the earth and calibrated to the frequency of Gaia-Sophia. Faciliatate this by connecting with the energy of her current interface, Shodashi. Shodashi likes fun, harmony, beauty, and comfort, so direct yourself to find these things today and it will help keep things contained.
The beginning of the Gibbous Moon phase on Sunday brings us one Moon phase away from the final pounding of Shodashi’s Solo. By the end of the Full Moon phase, the Harvest Moon, she will have completed her work to fulfill our soul’s highest desire and to disempower forces that stand opposed to humanity. All month long we’ve been trusting. Trust becomes even more important while we are in the Gibbous Moon phase. If you listened to my latest audio recording, I talked about how a year can be divided into eight equal segments to parallel the eight Moon phases. We have double-Gibbous energy because it’s the Gibbous Moon phase of the Gibbous time of year. So don’t give up now! Harvest on!
