Today we have the Full Moon in Aries at 11:00 am ET.
This Full Moon is opposite the Sun and Mars in Libra indicating an extra potent, energetic, and potentially aggressive Full Moon.
Full Moon’s always represent a heightened awareness of emotions and how we feel about our lives and what’s going on in the world. The Full Moon in Aries symbolizes a time where a new awareness of your identity is revealed.
There is great potential for personal breakthroughs, realizations and revelations about yourself with a Full Moon in Aries.
With the Sun in Libra it is our relationships to other people that can shine a light on who we know ourselves to be. Others act as a mirror, where you see who they are in relation to you, helps you to see yourself in a new light. An emotional exchange leading toward this Full Moon in Aries can be the catalyst to you awakening to see the real you. It is common that people will compare themselves to others as a measure of who they are.
Aries also represents self empowerment, leadership qualities and a desire to succeed. The Full Moon in Aries indicates an awareness of how far we’ve come to develop and define who we are in the image we choose for ourselves.
Aries is a fire sign ruled by Mars the warrior. We could see strong reactions, attitudes and behavior as people are more inclined to assert their identity. A stronger will to defend and protect the identity, the self, the ego whenever it is bruised or attacked by the actions, attitudes, behavior or words of another is likely to be increased.
With Mars in a difficult position to Pluto in Capricorn, this time could mark strong reactions to political decisions by leaders that are causing major imbalances in people’s lives. A sudden, explosive, transformative type of energy is indicated with the Full Moon in Aries connecting with Mars, and Pluto is the higher octave of Mars energy.
Mars also represents survival instincts and in Libra as the scales of measure we reminded of not only our relationships but also the balances and imbalances of money in our lives and how that makes us feel empowered or disempowered. With the pressure from the political and financial realm now, people are making decisions by weighing the pros and cons according to their survival instincts. Money and freedom are the two major tools that are being used to influence people’s thoughts, decisions and actions now.
As we are all facing major decisions now that affect our lives in significant ways, emotions can feel extra intense in our relationships now.
Impatience and short tempers are also likely to be evident as we approach this Full Moon. Strong reactions are quite possible.
Exercise and athleticism is a positive way to tap into the energy of this day to find personal balance. With strong Mars energy now, virile, sexual energy is likely to be heightened for many.
The other big news is that it’s Officially the Full Moon in Sagittarius on May 26, 2021 at 7:17 am ET. This Full Moon in Sagittarius stands across the sky from the Sun in Gemini and will be a Total Lunar Eclipse visible mainly over the Pacific Ocean best seen in Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii and is known as a Super Flower Blood Moon. We can expect a lot of gossip and opinions to be in focus during this period. What people think and believe about the world could be challenging during this period leading to strong reactions. Especially where there is deception and a lack of facts to back up information we could see challenges arise now. Add to this we have Mercury stationing Retrograde this week. The ruling planet of Sagittarius is Jupiter, and Jupiter is in Pisces now.
Venus in Gemini is in a difficult position to Neptune in Pisces on May 27, 2021 at 3:24 pm ET. This indicates some buttons may be pushed that require a loving and compassionate response. It can be difficult especially if people don’t feel heard. Emotional and mental games that people sometimes play can challenge relationships, but act as a catalyst to change and be more respectful. If you don’t feel valued or if you feel dismissed or overlooked while others are wandering off in their own lala land, a sense of loneliness can pull at your heart strings to want something more real and closer to the heart.
Mercury Retrograde in Gemini May 29 to June 22, 2021
Mercury will meet with Venus in Gemini on May 29, 2021 at 1:11 am ET just a few hours before Mercury goes Retrograde. The connection of Mercury and Venus is a good reminder that love in our communications with others is necessary. Since Mercury will be going Retrograde later in the day, this indicates that our relationships will be on our minds now and issues in relationships could be an important part of what we will need to deal with resolving for the next few weeks. Mercury and Venus connecting can also bring attention to finances and the stock market, jobs and income. Money matters could be one of the more significant topics of attention while Mercury is Retrograde.
Mercury stations Retrograde in Gemini on May 29, 2021 at 6:35 pm ET. Communications are up in the air while Mercury is Retrograde in Gemini. Sometimes people will find that Mercury Retrograde is a time to step back and be more of a listener and observer while avoiding small talk and communicating in general as a way to minimize relationship issues. On the other hand, for some circumstances seem to line up that has people get back in touch with those they haven’t communicated with in a while. Rethinking the past can bring up unexpected memories long forgotten. To get the mind away from today’s issues, many will turn to retro-vintage TV to step back into eras from the past.
With Mercury Retrograde for the next few weeks, we can expect some exchanges that lead to changes. We can expect to see a lot of issues, errors, mistakes, retractions, backtracking on decisions and changing points of view come about regarding communications and information exchanges during this period. We could see much talk of recalls, revotes and replacements.
Superficial information, false facts, gossip, misinformation, misleading information, deception, lies and mind-games are all highlighted. We could also see word-games and changes in definitions. Intentional deception and manipulation of numbers and false statistics based on biases and hidden information could get more attention during this period. We could see big lies come out during this time. Cyber hacking and nefarious activities surrounding information exchanges and data collection could be pivotal news during this period.
This is an especially notable Mercury Retrograde as Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini and we also have the Destiny Point in Gemini – communications and socializing have been in significant focus and will be for the rest of the year. This also highlights the issues we’ve had with freedom of communications, with rules and restrictions by social networks and Big Tech with Saturn Retrograde in fellow air sign Aquarius. We may hear of more drone surveillance during this period.
We can expect to see a lot of gossip, hypocrisy, double-talk and double standards during this period. As Mercury is the trickster, we could see evidence of those playing mind-games. With mixed messages coming out now, people’s heads could spin. With so much deception and misinformation, this is a really good time to do research to look into things further to find the truth. Instead of being swayed by superficial headlines, distractions and sensational talking points, do research like sleuth looking behind the scenes. As information can be confusing, it’s a good time to look at a lot of different angles.
Mercury will be Retrograde in Gemini until June 22, 2021 at 6:01 pm ET.
Mars in Cancer connects with Neptune in fellow water sign Pisces on May 31, 2021 at 1:15 am ET. Getting active by playing sports by the beach or in the water is suggested. A picnic by the waves with active energy of family members or those close can do you good. For those with family issues, especially those based on aggression, anger, emotional tension and misunderstandings, this could be a significant time of recognizing the karma of your battles. A more compassionate approach can be the remedy for an agitated ego.
Sun conjunct Destiny Point in Gemini on May 31, 2021 at 8:11 pm ET. This is a great time for a revelation and realization. Whatever your most brilliant and inspired ideas are now are worth noting and expanding upon. With Mercury Retrograde in Gemini now as well, the Sun meeting the Destiny Point can signify a key moment of awareness. Asking a lot of questions, especially when something doesn’t add up or make sense, can bring powerful and potent realizations now.
This reminds us of the importance of valuing ourselves and healing the wounds of our identities and our egos, and especially our relationships. This is the time to ask a lot of questions and gain perspective by weighing the positive and negative qualities in all our relationships so we can honestly judge how in balance or out of balance they are.
Relationships could be with who you see in the mirror, the relationship to yourself, your relationship to family, friends, coworkers, companies, leaders, politicians…. everyone.
What are those relationships like? Are they balanced or not? Are they positive or not? Are they kind and caring, or are they abusive and domineering. Are you free or controlled?
This week as we head toward the Full Moon in Libra, this is the time to honestly look at both sides and to see where the weight is heavier on one side or the other. When you are judging the character of another person whether they are family, friends, a significant other, or even politicians, it’s a good time to make honest judgments like, is this person bringing joy and happiness to your life or are they bringing fear? Is this person really honest and trustworthy, or are they deceptive and manipulative? Is this person’s decisions and actions leading to helpful outcomes for others are are their decisions leading to harmful outcomes for others?
Decisions at this time can be pivotal for our future so this is the time to weigh the pros and cons to make best judgments.
This Full Moon in Libra can bring attention to where we see balance, truth and justice demonstrated in the world or where we see imbalance, lies and injustice.
As an air sign, one of the most important things to consider is communications of thoughts and ideas, particularly how bias is influencing perspectives and what impact that has on the balance and imbalance of reality we are manifesting.
Wherever you see there is untruth or injustice, this is the time to speak up and have your voice heard. If you don’t speak up now, will you have a chance to speak up later?
Full Moon’s bring emphasis and awareness, so we could see a larger demonstration of how relationships, communications and biases impact how balanced and imbalanced our world is.
We could also see demonstrations of how limitations on access to information and freedom of information are at odds with one another, and how important truth in our communications are now, especially related to control measures by corporate media and social media. It will be interesting to see what announcements are made on social media this week.
We could have an increase in awareness heading toward this Full Moon in Libra. Stepping away from bias and toward seeing the whole picture, to know all sides of a story for a balanced perspective is suggested.
This is a time to ask real, important questions about what’s happening in the world. Does what’s happening in the world right now and the decisions that are being made, actually make logical sense? Where does it not make sense? Are things being well thought through and looked at from different angles, or is there a push in one direction regardless of information that suggests the contrary?
As we head toward this Full Moon in Libra this week we further see attention on how communications are impacting our perceptions of reality.
Mercury in Pisces is in a difficult aspect to Mars in Gemini on March 23, 2021 at 11:25 pm ET. Mercury will also be in a difficult aspect to the Destiny Point in Gemini on March 25 at 1:49 am ET.
These challenging aspects can point to conflicting points of view that put into question what you really believe. During this time, many could face a real question of faith. Is the information you are exposed to true, or is it deceptive and misleading? We could see demonstrations of actions and thoughts that are not positively aligned with a more conscious, spiritual perspective. The mind could work overtime here especially where disagreements on information are concerned, which could lead to anger and irritation. The key is to seek higher wisdom through the situation and doing your best to bring things back to a compassionate perspective.
Also before the Full Moon in Libra arrives, Venus in Aries meets the Sun in Aries on March 26, at 2:57 am ET. As Venus is the ruler of Libra this gives us further indications of shining light on the importance of self worth and recognizing who we value most in our lives.
Mars conjunct the Destiny Point in Gemini on March 26 11:33 am ET. Words and Actions have a lot of influence that leads to our future now. This can indicate an escalation of tensions and ego battles, but it can also indicate smart, strategic solutions to improve our future. Ultimately actions and reactions are a choice. Goals set at this time can have longer term impact.
It will be interesting to see what is the focus in the media at this time. Especially with Mercury the ruler of Gemini, in a difficult position to Mars and the Destiny Point, it’s important to notice the intentions. If what the media is focusing on pushing people toward aggressive divisions instead of peace and harmony, that should tell you everything you need to know about what their goals are and the outcomes they intend.
By observing and assessing behavior this week, look not only to the words and actions of people, but the results of those words and actions to better see the truth of that person’s intentions and motives. This can be especially important to make accurate judgments of people with a lot of influence like politicians and those pushing ideas in the media.
This can be an important time for people to speak up against injustice. We could see many demonstrate their opinions this week.
Mars connecting with the Destiny Point asks what future do you want to create and what can you do to change the future? What words need to be said and what actions need to be taken to impact where we are heading for a better future?
Venus will also meet with Chiron in Aries on March 28, 2021 at 12:27 pm ET, a couple of hours before the Full Moon further indicating the importance of love as the way to heal our wounds. Venus can disarm Mars.
The Full Moon in Libra will also be in challenging aspect to Uranus in Taurus, which can indicate an increase in tension and a sense of vulnerability near this Full Moon. Extra effort will be required to maintain a balanced mood and sensitivity to others.
