Full Moon – 16.02.2022

the next Full Moon is on February 16th at 4.57 pm UTC
 
Moon is at 27° 59’ Leo (Sun 27°59’ Aquarius)
quincunx Pluto (27°26’ Capricorn), square the nodes (North Node 26°57’ Taurus, South Node 26°57’ Scorpio), conjunct fixed stars Adhafera and  Al Jabhah in the Lion’s mane.
 
Just two hours before Venus and Mars went conjunct (16°55’ Capricorn) – they will meet again on March 6th (0°02’ Aquarius). An excellent time for raw passion being put into creative action as well as directing our energy towards our goals. be this in following the drive for mating, expressing through dance and art work, or simply giving daily routines a creative touch. 
 
 
This Full Moon helps us understand more our own feelings as well as our relationship dynamics. We are faced with our most complex, our most intense emotions – guilt, shame, jealousy, possessiveness, destructiveness, and (as Venus and Mars are conjunct) our most complex and intense sexual desires, basically all emotion and sensation which we have tried to hide and store away.
 
Now, this can feel threatening, unsettling, stirring all kinds of fears and anxieties, especially if we have been through trauma or extreme grief in our childhood. In any case, we will feel our emotions intensely, most likely without even knowing why we have such intense feelings right now (the aspect of Pluto is like the dead angle in the rearview mirror, we can’t see him but feel his presence). The more conscious we are about this, the less we will find ourselves in emotional outbursts, strange behaviour, mood swings, relationship drama, emotional crisis.
 
Important is to feel emotionally accepted and supported, and there is no-one closer and better equipped than we ourselves to do this. Nevertheless, it might also be helpful to find someone we truly trust and can open up to and share those feelings we have right now, especially if it feels overwhelming, and likewise if we have never experienced this being-held (from a mother-figure) in our lives. For some this might best be a close friend or a sister, for others a more detached professional counsellor.
Because, if we can’t talk about these feelings, can’t share them, they could escalate, make us feel even worse, suppress those feelings even more, and act them out in uncontrolled ways. This acting out especially shouldn’t be underestimated as the fixed stars involved are known for “suicide poison, corrosive acids, liquid explosives, liquid fire, lying, stealing, crime, loss and many dangers, violent and intemperate nature, military officer danger of unity and murder by soldiers“. Equally possible is that we find ourselves more often in the role of the listener for friends, sisters, clients over the next two weeks.
 
The – probably felt as more uncomfortable than welcome – call from the lord of the underworld and the changes he brings with him will have a long lasting (so called) karmic effect on our emotional attitude, especially what showing them in the world is concerned. Depending on where each of us comes from by habit and history (fond of being on stage / shying away from being seen) different aspects of this will be torn away, until we face ourselves, especially our emotional needs, raw and naked, so that we can see them as what they truly are, freed from the layers of education, mind-beliefs and habit.
 
This Full Moon, if we are willing and unafraid, will peel free our own true intensity (which might feel, if we are not used to it, too much to cope with in the beginning), and charisma.
It will help us to discover deep buried secrets – our own consciously created ones, our karmic ones, our inherited ones from of our ancestry line and collective ones. 
It will allow us to deepen our understanding of the mysteries.
 
use the Moon window between Tuesday and Thursday (walk the eight, journey, meditate, etc) to embrace your deepest feelings
 
 
I have been noticing that the energies of this Moon already have been active for some days. there are a number of people who have been feeling exhausted and emotionally at the edge. that is because Pluto has been activated by Mercury (some had technical difficulties as well). we are in a massive Pluto-time this year. well, actually Pluto’s energies can be felt far into 2024. it already stated last year with Venus snuggling up with him and the whole new Venus cycle is plutonic. Especially relationships and finance are in the focus.
 
Pluto is a great teacher if we are willing to get taught. he gives us guidance if we are willing to listen. he is a wonderful initiator if we open ourselves up for change.
Pluto brings empowerment. but the first step in this process is always to face our deepest fears and so called shadows. 
so, be honest to yourselves and see
– what scares you
– where you feel guilt and shame
– where you blame others (i.e. being in denial) instead of looking what’s going on for you
– what kinds of addictions you have created (not only towards substances, emotional and mental ones as well)
– what expectations you have, especially limiting ones which deny the magnificence of life and which block the constant flow of trust
 
 
some quote that might be helpful: 
 
The biggest embrace of love you’ll ever make
is to embrace yourself completely.
Then you’ll realize you’ve just embraced the whole universe,
and everything and everybody in it.
~Adyashanti
 
this time is powerful  
if you can collect yourself and focus inward  
leave the outer world to their conflicts
use it as a mirror
and allow parts of you to surface that you have not allowed before
become so vulnerable !
the liquid of wholeness will wrap around you
and in its darkness
everything can find its place
and so your mind is suspended
until the new can form
this is the way of the heart
and womb where things get born.
~ Gisela Stromeyer
 
People get into a heavy-duty sin and guilt trip, feeling that if things are going wrong, it means they did something bad and they are being punished. That’s not the idea at all. The idea of karma is that you continually get the teachings that you need to open your heart. To the degree that you didn’t understand in the past how to stop protecting your soft spot, how to stop armouring your heart, you’re given this gift of teachings in the form of your life, to give you everything you need to open further.
~ Pema Chodron
