Temple Astrolog: Full moon, lunar eclipse, and how to dig in the best way

Today it is not only a Full moon, but a lunar eclipse as well. It is said that a sun eclipse is a change for the leaders and a moon eclipse is a change for the people. This full moon is in the sign of Gemini, the first air sign and our master communicator. Just like people are more or less influenced by when the moon is full, they can feel the energy more or less from moon and sun eclipses. Even if you are moon sensitive by nature, there are some things that you could do to find more balance. Let´s take a closer look at this moon eclipse and the time that follows after that.

Feeling irritated and frustrated?

Right now we have Venus (love, romance) in opposition and challenging aspect to Uranus (change, unpredictable). This creates a restless and picky energy in relationships. People born with this aspect usually has a hard time to commit to a relationship, and when they do, they have a need for the relationship to be perfect.  If their partner stop living up to their idea of standards, they can lose the attraction. If you have seen the TV-show Friends and the character Chandler, you get the idea. He goes on dates with women, but as soon as they show a sign of not being perfect, he just can´t continue to go out with them. We can joke about this, but for a person with this aspect it can be very frustrating  and involve a lot of hurt and trashed relationships on both sides.

This aspect is many time inherited in the horoscope and because Venus is involved we need to look at the women in the family tree. Many times we find a mother, grandmother or another important female figure that did not have the chance to live out all sides of her womanhood. Perhaps she needed to sacrifice her Venus (love passion) for having a family and taking on responsibilities. Or, she had to give up having the family life that she wanted to make a career or going after love and passion. The solution to this split is realizing that you can have both sides, and that nobody is perfect.

I´m more than just one thing

On a collective plane this means that we all can become frustrated with our partners, our lives and our situation that does not live up to our expectations. With the Corona virus many things has taken unexpected turns and life is not easily navigated.

Many of us spend more time home , people who are not used to spend all this time together are now more or less bound to each other. Flaws and imperfections become more apparent and it is easy to let the frustrations take overhand.

If you have the chance,  it can be good to continue with date night. Make the effort, cook something delicious, get out of the pyjamas and dress up for each other. Be both the home guy and the adventurous guy. Remember to give your and your partners Venus some space to blossom and be passionate.

Venus/Uranus can also manifest the need to give your partner more space. In these times when having a night out with friends isn’t possible , we may need to find other solutions for alone time.

Pretty much the same things that you needed if you went through the tough years of having babies. You need to have the chance to be more than just one thing, or just one archetype. As much as you love being a parent, there is still something inside saying, I´m more than just this! If you repress the passionate (Scorpio) Venus she will feel unseen and may feel the need to stir things up to get attention, which might lead to arguments and fights.

Let´s have a baby!

Another way of working with this energy is to get a baby together. The baby does not need to be a real one. It can be a project, a new hobby together, doing a big puzzle, taking a class together online. This adventure is probably going to be more fun if it is new to both of you and you start with the same conditions for success! If you want to you can involve the whole household. Uranus is doing a good aspect to Ceres (nourishment) in Pisces. This helps to bring energy, healing and nourishment through trying new things.

“Dig where you stand”

In Sweden we have an expression “gräv där du står”. It translates to “dig where you stand”. When we feel the pressure to deliver good, or deliver more, we can become frustrated and start to run around trying to find new things, ideas and resources. In reality, it can be more than enough to keep digging where we stand and continue to dig deeper.

Right now we have many big placements in the sign of Capricorn. We have Pluto, Jupiter, Pallas Athena and Saturn. Together they easily create pressure and performance anxiety. Capricorn is a lot about delivering, to do the work, get the resources, make money and a career.

In Scorpio we have both Mercury (communication, friends) and Juno (relationships, starts and endings) joined together.  On a collective plane they can make us feel a bit uncomfortable and frustrated. Perhaps I should have taken another way in life? Or perhaps I start wanting the success and happiness that others seem to have. This can lead to jealousy and envy. But, here´s one good thing. There is a good aspect right now between the constellation in Capricorn and the Mercury /Juno in Scorpio and this can help you to go deeper and expand your talents.

So instead of thinking too much about what everyone else is doing, and starting digging new holes everywhere around you – dig where you stand. Do your thing, expand your gifts. You got this.

Moon crazy?

Now back to where we started, the full moon and the moon eclipse. Some people love them, some have a really hard time at the eclipses. My advice to you is to tune in beforehand and feel how deep you want to go? Do I want to be alone, or do I want to do ceremony with others?

Tuning in is important when we are dealing with the moon, because she does not like to be ignored. The Moon embody the mother and all aspects of the feminine. And what mother likes being ignored, right? Some full moons and eclipses we feel the call and that we need to go deeper. If this is the case, then prepare yourself for the upcoming energy. Clear space in your calendar so that you can meet up the energy in beauty.

Some moons and eclipses we don´t feel the same surge and then perhaps it is just as good to tune in to the Moon drinking a cup of magickal tea, or soaking in a special herbal bath, or just mentally connecting and making aware that it is a full moon. As long as you acknowledge the Moon and her round belly, she hears you, she feels you. After all she is Mother!
