We dove deep and soared high using the Scorpio Full Moon energies. During the lunar passage we had some realizations, and perhaps even revelations about our Selves and how we behave as a group. Our shared consciousness is complex and full of competing emotions that can be intense or light as air. We either explored this within ourselves, or we saw it being played out in public. The Scorpio portion of our Consciousness makes this deep exploration possible, and it is always good for us, no matter how uncomfortable it may seem. We need the focused research capacities of Scorpio so we can see what we have created and then chart a course forward.
One major revelation that is starting to become clear is that the Earth is thriving while humanity is coping with changes in our lives brought on by the COVID 19 virus. The New Moon in Taurus helped open our eyes to this reality. We are reminded that Earth operates without human intervention every second—there is no on or off button that we control for planetary dynamics. We are but one species living on this planet, and we are reminded through COVID-19 how vulnerable our bodies and existence are. The Taurus and Scorpio parts of our consciousness form a polarity—in Taurus we learn to recognize and listen to our inner voice; in Scorpio, we start to physically manifest the vision our inner voice provides us. This is a very dynamic polarity and is exemplified by the phrase: as above, so below.
The Full Moon in Libra gave us a clear view of where we stand with our true feelings about the human collective. Sitting in our homes and using social distancing, the tendency may be to not identify with those suffering the most with COVID-19 or those doing the most to keep us all safe. There may have been feelings alike: “that’s them,” “that’s how they are dealing with the situation” and “glad that is not me.” Sustaining the drama gripping us all is wearing on the human spirit, and we are all far more resilient as a group rather than as individuals. Libra shows us where we really are with seeing the other as precious as ourselves in the mirror. The Libra part of our consciousness is also where we gain discernment by using the observer’s perch. We learn here that if something comes and goes, then it is not the eternal Awareness, Love, or Truth.
Libra and Taurus used to be connected through Venus as their shared archetypical dispositor; and in the Cosmic Consciousness system, Sedna is now the dispositor of Libra. While the disposition has changed there is still an energic link between these two parts of our Consciousness. Libra is where we discover the Other while we open ourselves to the knowledge that we are the co-creator of everything we experience, whether we are aware of it or not. Taurus is where we experience ourselves as a presence, and in doing so find our inner voice, and learn how to trust it as authentic and true.
This passage from the Aries New Moon to this Full Moon in Libra is one we are not likely to forget. The Full Moon is occurring right as the apex of COVID-19 is manifesting in the United States and the virus is now everywhere in the world. Libra represents the physical social awareness part of our Consciousness. The key is how we go about experiencing this social awareness.
In Cosmic Consciousness, the purpose of the Libra is where we experience the true relationship we have with our Selves through the mirrored reflection of our relationships. This statement is so near and so close to each of us because it is with Libra that we start to realize the “I AM” awareness as “I AM THAT.”
Under this vast star-bright sky
--it is hard to be someone
We gain consciousness of the Other, first as someone “doing something” that demands our attention. We are socialized to “take the world in” instead of seeing ourselves as co-creators of it. With the “I AM THAT” awareness, we begin to see that the Other is another precious soul working alongside us, no matter what they are doing and no matter where they are. These are enormous words, and it is very difficult to hold this awareness because in the moment it is only me or you interacting with each other.
In the pond
-my reflection changes
With each indifferent gust of wind
In this time, where everyone on the planet is challenged to radically change our social behavior by a virus that we cannot see, it is time to truly connect to the Libra portion of our individual and shared Consciousness. To save ourselves and each other, we need to set physical boundaries and at the same time, hold on to the collective consciousness. This means focusing on the sense of we instead of me.
The affirmation for Libra is “I AM YOU AND YOU ARE ME,” and we need to accept and abide by our shared responsibility for each other. We are living with new rules of physical social distancing, at the same time as we grapple with the continued need to connect in meaningful ways. This Full Moon is to remind us that we all have the capacity to do this. Libra is the ultimate observer, with the ability to see things as they are in the moment, all things being equal as they happen, without judgement.
