Mars Enters Cancer and the Full Moon in Scorpio

“Perception is an ongoing interchange – a silent conversation I carry on with things. The act of perception is always open-ended and unfinished.” David Abram

“And all the obstacles along the way
Sometimes may feel so tremendous
There are guides and spirits all along the way
Who will befriend us.” Van Morrison

Perception is very much on the front burner over the next few weeks as Mars enters Cancer and aligns with several outer planets. As the astrologer and investigative reporter Eric Francis noted, these aspects signify the potential for ,”a blending of two levels of awareness.” This indicates that things that have been difficult to see or feel may become more accessible over the next few weeks.  It’s a good time to heighten awareness for breakthroughs.

The Moon waxes full Saturday at 27 degrees of Scorpio.The Taurus/Scorpio axis is about what we hold on to – in terms of beliefs, feelings and possessions and what we need to let go of in order to evolve. This Full Moon provides good timing to look at what you are hanging onto that is outgrown and may be blocking forward evolution. One of the symbols for the sign of Scorpio is the phoenix rising from the ashes – signifying the powers of regeneration and rebirth.

The Sabian symbol for this Full Moon is,”The king of the fairies approaching his domain.”
