Full Moon Astrology Article: Inspiration with Eyes Wide Open and Learning to Thrive

Our Taurus Sun at 24° is energizing the deep instinctual urge to first survive, and then to thrive. The Scorpio Moon at 24° brings an increased awareness to your everyday activities that merely surviving isn’t fulfilling all by itself. In fact, with the Full Moon in Scorpio, succeeding isn’t even enough. You are moving beyond old ideas of what it means to succeed. What is needed is something deeper. This Full Moon has the potential to open your eyes to see the possibility for embodying a new level of fulfillment. You are learning to thrive.

Venus and Mars: Inspired Action

The stable grand cross astrological pattern is still in full activation. A Venus and Mars opposition is important part of this grand cross. What’s being called forth from the pattern during this Full Moon phase is inspiration. More specifically, it’s inspiration which is available to be transformed into inspired action. This action is coming from a place of expanded vision, or awareness beyond what is normally available. With Mars opposing Venus, your opportunity is to move forward with new activity (Mars) with the promise of personalized fulfillment (Venus).

Venus Conjunct Uranus: Moving Past Your Comfort Zone

May 2014 Full MoonThis is a spectacular configuration occurring on the Scorpio Full Moon. Uranus has helpful energies which empower you to see beyond the ordinary limits of the concrete world. The three days after the Full Moon are a perfect period to envision a world full of potential and creative power.

It’s through this vision of what lies beyond that you’re able to sense, feel, and intuit these Uranian energies. The new perceptions or insights will be easy to recognize. You will feel inspired. The question is what type of inspired action are you going to take?

Uranus energies bring out the true individuality in each person. At the same time you are also encouraged to let go of things standing in your way. With Uranus, there is always a process of reorientation and inspiration taking place. If you’re able to consciously participate in this experience, then Uranian energy begins to flow with brilliance, innovation, and new insights.

Venus’ conjunction Uranus is special when considering how it fits in so perfectly with the overall astrology pattern. Venus holds the possibility of utilizing Uranian energy to pursue what true inspires you with insights that originate beyond normal perceptions (Uranus).

Moon Conjunct Saturn: Fulfillment Beyond the Status Quo

Once every month, the Moon passes over Saturn, creating a Moon/Saturn conjunction. This always brings the need to experience an increase in one’s structure and stability. Because of this opportunity for stability the configuration often represents connecting with the status quo.

With the current configuration, however, there is a deeper opportunity than simple status quo. With a grand cross and Venus/Uranus conjunction as part of this amazing astrology pattern, there’s need to go deeper (Moon in Scorpio) than the status quo to find the level of fulfillment you need to feel whole and complete (grand cross).

Our astrological pattern is supporting your ability to fight for fulfillment beyond the status quo of your normal daily life. You’re being inspired and challenged to access a deeper level of personal transformation. This is where the experience of fulfillment lies.

Action from New Perspective

With this Full Moon you have the ability to use what inspires you to move beyond what you have been willing to accept in the past, and have perhaps outgrown. This inspiration flows from seeing your life from a new perspective, with eyes wide open. As if, maybe only for a moment, you’re able to see beyond to confines of normal reality and see what is possible, transformative, and expansive.

During the three days following the Full Moon there is a window of opportunity to visualize which holds the power to show you something new and different. Be curious to see something which you weren’t ready or willing to look at before. Use this vision or awareness as inspiration to try something new. It’s time for action to be taken with open eyes and an inspired heart.

In Summary

Uranus is in a powerful conjunction with Venus allowing you to see beyond (Uranus) your normal comfort zone (Venus). Mars is opposing this Venus/Uranus conjunction and needs to take action (Mars) beyond what’s stable and predictable (Saturn/Moon conjunction).

Our Grand Cross offers expansion and integration (Jupiter), through an awareness of personal transformation (Pluto). Individuality and inspired action (Mars) are possible only through the awareness of what’s beyond (Uranus). This new awareness beyond your normal perceptions is linked to what will fulfill you the most (Venus).

The Moon (Scorpio 24°) and Sun (Taurus 24°) bring to light the idea that there is more to life than simply embracing the status quo. You can see / feel that it’s not enough to just survive. It’s not even enough to be productive and succeed.

There is a deeper desire now to look beyond the outer physical shell of organic life and see the realm of spirit, the higher-self, creativity, and inspiration. A glimpse of this realm is the secret to finding a new level of fulfillment in your life. You’re ready to thrive.
