October’s Full Moon

“As you know, any plain person you chance to meet can prove to be a powerful immortal in disguise come to test you.” Maxine Hong Kingston

“Women’s spirituality is wild and free, matured, earthy, relational, mystical, embodied, intuitive, sensuous, compassionate.” Joan Borysenko

I recently watched an interview with a Catholic nun working with Catholic Relief Services in the southwest US with the many refugee children held in detention centers without their parents.

The  reporter interviewing her kept asking her leading questions that could easily have resulted in her criticizing government policy or government officials. Instead, each time she was asked a question like that, she would  calmly say,”We came here to take care of each other.”

The Moon, which governs mothering and nurturing, waxes full the 24th of October at 1 degree of Taurus. The configuration at this time speaks of the re-emergence of the Divine Feminine and the considerable push back it is facing on the planet at this time. The Moon is conjunct Uranus opposing the Sun conjunct retrograde Venus – the Moon and Venus govern  aspects of the feminine in both men and women.

The Moon/Uranus in Taurus speaks very much of a break for freedom from limited emotional programming and beliefs of the past – beliefs that may have come down through ancestral or family lines, or through cultural or religious systems. It can be a time when you have sudden breakthroughs about emotional patterning that has kept you feeling trapped.

It bodes well to provide extra downtime and to nurture the nervous system heading into this time.

Teilhard de Chardin has written,” Evolution is an ascent towards consciousness” – a good thing to keep in mind at this Full Moon.

The Sabian symbol for this time is,” An electrical storm illuminates the heavens and the forests.”
