Full Moon October 16 2016 is at 23º Aries Decan 3. Aspects: Conjunct Uranus & Eris. Fixed Star: Acamar In Eridanus the River
Moon In Aries Decan 3. The Moon here does not have any dignity, and usually the watery, emotional moon is quite uncomfortable and even quite vulnerable in Aries. However this Venus/Jupiter ruled decan has a certain watery vibe due to the seafaring stars here. I believe that emotions channeled in the right way here can make this Moon’s energy pretty successful, despite the problems of some of the difficult fixed stars. The Full Moon can ebb and flow through this decan’s rough seas.
It will also feel quite at home here since the dark lunacy of this decan is something that the imagination can really thrive in. So it is really important that we have some creative outlet with which to unleash our passions. Those touched by this Full moon will need to perform their ever-changing moods to an audience. The dancing emotions are often very entertaining, even if it’s just a rant about something quite small. The spin added to the event makes the experience an adventurous quest rather than a mundane moan.
At this Full Moon the minutae of everyday life has the potential for high drama, a bit like a Mike Leigh film. The Full moon activates fixed star Acamar in Eridanus. It’s not such an important star, but it is at least fortunate unless you include the influence of the constellation itself and you want to go sailing!
Acamar gives “Success in public office, ecclesiastical success.” It is also the brightest star in the decan. Robson says of the constellation itself that it gives a “love of knowledge and science, much travel and many changes, a position of authority, but danger of accidents especially at sea and of drowning” I would stick close to land and don priestly vestments then…;) I like to jest, but generally the dire death by drowning warnings of the fixed stars come from an era when traveling by ship was far more common, dangerous and without maritime technology or shipping forecasts.
Moon Conjunct Uranus & Eris
I have not yet had time to update my Eris post. Personally I have had quite a massive awakening in regard to Eris’s meaning. The beginnings of this epiphany was stirred when I wrote the Uranus conjunct Uranus post. “Women these days are just as much worker drones as their husbands. Now, in order to pay the mortgage it is often a necessity for both partners to work full time. With children spending more time in childminders and state education, the end result is parents have less control over what programs (TV or otherwise) go into their children minds.” Western birth rates are now down to 1.6 in most European countries. If Eris is the outer-planet version of Lilith, then she really has literally become the Lilith ‘baby killer’ for western civilisation.
On and off this year we have also had Ceres making a triple conjunction here, joining her daughter Eris (Like Uranus carries Promethean qualities, so Eris is also very Persephone like.) I rewrote the Ceres post too, which talks about narcissistic personality disorder. By the time of this Full Moon I shall be deeply immersed in re-writing and formatting my still not completed Lilith book for release as a natal report. This Full Moon ignites how important it is for women to awaken (Uranus) as how they have been manipulated by neo-feminism. Unfortunately the demonisation of the sacred masculine, has crept into the New-Age goddess movement too. This fake ‘Goddess worship’ has worked to destroy the family, fertility and healthy sexuality. In it’s most negative form it has turned the sacred feminine and priestess energy into being nothing more than a sex slave. (Just like what happened with Mary Magdalene.)
Paradoxically the more pornography infects both men and woman’s sex lives the more frigid women can become and more impotent men become. There is so much ‘slut-walking’ around us now that it is a turn off. Like being force fed candy constantly, it becomes sickening. Maybe this is why the New York fashion week featured the Hijab for the first time as part of the new ‘modesty movement’ in fashion. Could Islam force us back towards Victorian dress codes? This has happened in history before. The pre-Victorian Georgian age had gender-bending dandy male attire, while women sported bulging busts and towering hairdos. But both sexes looked extremely feminine. In Victorian times, women were women and men were men again. Power moustaches were back for the 1910 gentleman.
Full Moon October 2016 Aspects
Moon conjunction Uranus ~ Sun opposition Uranus
Moon conjunct Uranus makes this Moon veer between the kooky, crazed lunatic and the unconventional rebel. It has a pathological need to shock and outrage, but can be surprisingly shy and uncomfortable with the notoriety this outrageous behaviour brings.
Those touched by this Fill Moon may be branded attention seekers, when all they are doing is simply being themselves. This Full Moon aspect is exciting, electric and quite chaotic. Both the Moon and Uranus are fluctuating and changeable, and emotions often change in a flash.
Sun Opposite Uranus. The Solar element of this Full Moon enjoys being a provocateur. It just can’t help challenging the status quo. The behaviour could stem from experiencing a traumatic childhood. Thouse touched by the Sun aspect in this Full Moon may experience an explosive temper. Parental arguments could cause sudden exits from the household. There could be much slamming of doors and jumpy kids. This abandonment trauma is why Uranus has the reputation for being the divorce planet. This aspect of the Full Moon is not one conducive to a stable home environment.
Full Moon October Summary
This is certainly a very passionate Full Moon! In relationships, it could be make or break time. Uranus will force change if one does not make that change willingly. It is time to be brave and even provocative if you want to take control of the Full Moon’s revolutionary energy. The worst thing to do at this Full Moon would be to suppress anger as it could cause a right old tempest later on. Cards nned to be put on the table and truth exposed. It might be the time when affairs are confessed to or hidden love is declared after a battle of the sexes. With this Full Moon triggering Uranus/Eris women could wake up to their own divine masculine shadow. How well do they treat men as a consequence of having experienced paternal abandonment as a child?
