“Anger is loaded with information and energy…We cannot let our fear of anger to deflect us nor seduce us into settling for anything less than the hard work of excavating honesty.” Audre Lorde
The Harvest Moon is full on Thursday the 5th of October at 12 degrees of Aries. The pressure cooker energy continues under this influence and in a proactive way it provides good timing to form a more healthy relationship to anger.
With the Sun in Libra conjunct Vesta the focus is on how you communicate and relate to others. It is a good time to look at unprocessed anger -and the effect it has on relationships. It is wise to factor in that we are still under the influence of the Saturn/Chiron square which brings up issues of core wounding. This applies personally to each of us as individuals, it applies to relationships and it applies to the planet and the environment – being reflected in the many painful events we see around us.
Recently the astrologer and writer, Amanda Painter suggested that when people lash out at you, it is wise to consider that it comes from the place of their own personal wounding.
The Moon is squaring Pluto at the time of the Full Moon indicating there is a higher level of self mastery that can be attained with the willingness to work with and tranform these dynamics.
It is wise now to provide healthy outlets for excess energy and anger and to defuse situations rather than letting them get out of control – which will be more likely now. It’s wise to remember that anger can cause more damage than anticipated.
Lynda Hill’s Sabian symbol for this time is, ” A bomb which failed to explode is now safely hidden from discovery” and she defines it this way, “This Symbol shows that often in one’s life explosive elements need discharging. Pressure cooker energy needs to be released, but it often needs to be done slowly and carefully. By keeping a sense of control, one can handle situations, elements or people without things getting out of hand. Be an example to others of how calmness and quiet can take the charge out of things.”
An astrologer or Tarot card reader should be a trusted ally on your life’s path.
