Full Moon Astrology Feb 2016

The Full Moon illuminates and activates new awareness, especially corresponding to whatever was released with the manifesting wave of New Moon energy two weeks ago. In the coming two weeks look for ways to celebrate and take inspired action, especially from whatever you have embraced or experienced since the New Moon. Be patient with challenges that emerge in the coming days, recognizing that they are also a necessary part of your expansion.

Full Moon Astrology Article: Living in Harmony During Times of Stress

This month’s Full Moon astrology brings a new awareness to what it means to live in harmony and to cooperate with those who are in rhythm with your own personal truth.

Two weeks have transpired since the last New Moon, which introduced a new energy in the form of a personal message of truth. What’s now being activated at the Full Moon is a deeper understanding of what is means to cooperate with others, while staying grounded in your new sense of personal truth.

The Full Moon chart also presents a specific signature that indicates the possibility for additional stress and conflict. This is over and above life’s typical ups and downs. It further suggests that the source of stress could be coming from being at odds with an overly dominate status quo.

This stress isn’t necessarily a bad thing. We all understand that conflict and stress arise from time to time in our personal lives. Stress is part of the natural cycle of adaptation and can actually indicate a point of growth. On the physical level, for example, stress is required to increase physical strength. As you exercise your muscles are stressed. With proper nutrition and rest these stressed muscles recover with the benefit of being stronger and more resilient. The point I’m making is that the stress or conflict that may appear this month can be used as an opportunity for growth.

Emotional and social stress can work the same way as physical exercise, through the principle of adaptation. Cooperation and conflict resolution can create a larger possibility, however this is only possible if differences are seen as a necessary function of the entire whole. During times of stress you have the opportunity to become emotionally stronger by striving to live in harmony.

What often contributes to stress is our own bias, or limited perspective. Bias is based in your personal truth, but goes beyond truth into the realm of negative judgement based on superficial differences.

What the Full Moon brings into a sharper focus is the need for freedom. This is freedom based on a mutual respect for individual self-determination that honors the differences between people without impinging on another’s free will.

Over the coming two weeks, between the Full Moon and the next New Moon, set your focus on the harmony that brings people together. It is precisely this harmony and the ability to be in rhythm with each other that will inspire you to expand into larger understandings of truth and what is possible.

Astrology Pattern

Full Moon Astrology Chart for Feb 2016One of the more significant Solar alignments this year is the Sun’s conjunction with Neptune. During this Full Moon Neptune, contributes its ability to dissolve away whatever isn’t creating harmony in your life. It also brings to light the ways in which your personal truth must be in alignment with others in a spirit of cooperation. In this way, Neptune supports your ability to be of service.

The Virgo Moon within this chart activates a new level of freedom from negative bias. This emphasizes that we must honor each other’s individual truths as long as those truths don’t trample on the free-will of others. Virgo supports this process as it seeks to master the art of bringing greater discrimination to all of your actions. This includes doing the right thing in service to others.

The planet Mars is making a T-Square with the Full Moon. This is significant in that Mars demands action. That action can go either way – it can create conflict or promote harmony. Mars itself doesn’t discriminate between the two extremes. There’s a time and a place for everything. Mars in this configuration is more concerned with the efficient functioning of a new course of action. This is definitely indicating an energy shift to make available the actions necessary to swiftly adapt to any new situations in order to live more harmoniously.

Have a great Full Moon,

Astrology Article: Discovering Your Personal Message

This month’s New Moon energies bring a personal message to each of us. This message will vary from person to person, depending on  circumstances and where you are in your life’s journey.  In this article I hope to shed some light on the breadth of possibility available, and help you discover what your personal message might be.

To begin, remember that each New Moon represents an opportunity for a new type of growth. The Moon is all about growth. Studying the Lunar cycle for personal and practical support allows you to more fully incorporate these energies into your life. When you can intentionally assimilate these New Moon energies, your growth can be more rapid, more complete, and more rewarding.

Let’s take a closer look at seven specific messages being introduced during this New Moon. These seven messages are embedded in the planetary positions and arrangement of the astrological chart. Each of the following patterns are readily available for your personal growth. As you read each one, reflect on those which most resonate.  In order to stimulate your personal growth pattern this month, focus on those messages that most directly speak to your own truth.

Seven Distinct New Moon Messages to Consider

  1. There is a paradoxical nature to inner freedom. Freedom requires limits. In order to experience freedom in one area of your life, it’s often necessary to apply self-discipline in another. To limit, withhold or deny something in one area of your life in order produce freedom in another is a paradox that is worth mastering.
  2. Nurture silence. When the mind learns how to be attentive, silence ceases to be empty. This month you have new access to transcendental knowledge.  The fullness experienced in silence has the power to sustain your faith in guidance and the type of knowledge that transcends mere information.
  3. You are ready to accept your own nobility. In the spiritual sense, nobility is only truly attained once a person feels deserving. This experience of receiving one’s worth and true nobility leads to inspiration and the acceptance of responsibility that comes with one’s  inspiration to fulfill their potential.  When you accept your nobility, you also experience that your potential is deserved and something to be respected as an instrument for good.
  4. Planetary rhythms support your visionary perspective. When you are able to strengthen your sensitivity toward the larger planetary rhythms, you can align with the consciousness necessary for planning future endeavors that serve the highest good.
  5. Personal balance is an important step toward success. There is opportunity to find new levels of personal equilibrium between the natural rhythms of rest and activity. Another way to speak of this is the necessary balance between inner silence and outward action.
  6. It’s time to release your inhibitions. Releasing what has been repressed is closely related to releasing distorted values that have, over time, become warped by a subservience to traditions that are no longer needed. By taking a closer look at your inhibitions, you have the opportunity to release these distorted patterns.
  7. This is a time for self-quickening. The term “self-quickening” refers to a deep process of inner activation in which you experience the integration and full vitality of your life force. This current lunar cycle holds the opportunity to release and direct your vital energies toward the mobilization of your spiritual goals.

Moving Forward

New Moon Astrology Chart for Feb 2016One or more of the above seven message will resonate with you. Work with these messages over the coming lunar month in order to experience your maximum growth potential.

In two weeks, the Full Moon in Virgo will help you further integrate these messages into your life and continue to expand in positive growth and prosperity.

Moving forward, I would also like to point you toward the Lunar Eclipse that will occur on March 23rd with the Libra Full Moon. Your particular Lunar messages during this New Moon won’t be fully realized until the Lunar Eclipse in March when the energies will fully coalesce, unfolding with a ripple effect throughout the remainder of the year.

Blessings to all my friends.
