Sitting on a train out of Edinburgh bound for London I suddenly realize that some of my thoughts and actions over the previous 24 hours have been directly connected to this month’s full moon (which was exact at 2:17 a.m. GMT yesterday, according to Solar Fire). My experience has been that when traveling, especially out of the country, I’m easily distracted and sometimes become very Neptunian; it takes extra effort just to stay focused on practical matters at hand such as getting on the right train, the right bus, following directions and definitely making sure you don’t leave anything critical behind in your hotel room…like your passport or the rental car keys.
For these very reasons I totally lost track of yesterday’s full moon event until after I had made the (radical!) decision to approach literary agents in the UK regarding my current historical thriller, which for the most part is set on UK soil.
Without thinking about a full moon connection, I diverted from ‘doing business as usual’ with US agents and launched into the slow process of querying London agents in a very ‘mental’ way. It was only this morning that I realized this decision was reflected in my own chart at time of exact fullness.
As each of the Cardinal signs spurs us into initiatory action, Aries brings fire to such ‘forks in the road.’ Even when it isn’t full, an Aries moon is passionate about whatever it deems is the ‘mission of the day’. The opposing Libra Sun lighting up this moon suggests that wherever the Aries focus is, it’s something you love and one that has an important connection that reaches out to others in some way. Additionally, with Saturn sitting next to the Sun, we’re asked to consider issues of external authority that we may have been grappling with…or perhaps taking another look at our own ‘internal authority’.
As always, circumstances of life are represented by these placements in your own chart. I’m reminded one more time, there are no accidents…For where I was at 2:17 a.m., Libra’s Sun shone brightly from the third house…communication and writing, to the passionate Aries moon in the ninth…publishing; impact to be determined.
