Gibbous Moon Phase: trust
Moon in Sagittarius/Capricorn 8:38 pm ET/11:38 pm UT
Sun: 12 Leo – “an evening lawn party of adults”
Higher Expression: the present moment, harmonious, dignified, ease, connecting with like-minded people, maturity
Lower Expression: social status and hierarchy, ignorance, avoidance, poor choices
Earth: 12 Aquarius – “people on a vast staircase graduated upwards”
Higher Expression: processes unfolding, search for meaning and hope for the future, looking at something from someone else’s perspective, seeing variations
Lower Expression: feeling is being left behind/abandoned, ranking value of things that are inherently equal, feelings of failure
Today’s energetics involve the themes of “our place” or “where we belong” and “home.”
It is very important today to understand that everyone is on their path and to trust our own paths.
Gibbous Moon phase asks that we cultivate or strengthen our level of trust.
This can be hard for a species that has been traumatized (us) because trauma naturally breaches the boundaries of our self-hood. It causes us to doubt ourselves and our judgment (because with trauma, we try to figure out ways to prevent similar experiences, hoping we can control the uncontrollable about life). Above all, trauma shakes our faith.
I go into this because the Moon is leaving Sagittarius today, after a couple of intense days with the Black Moon and Saturn. The Black Moon and Saturn stir conflicts and tugs-of-war. Ultimately, they are about overcoming fear and starting time over / rebirthing.
Before the Moon leaves Sagittarius, however, we have a blessed opportunity. The Moon will conjunct the Galactic Center (the Pleroma to the ancient Gnostics). One might say the Galactic Center is our spiritual “home” in the galaxy. We have the chance to “touch Spirit” and reconnect. Remember that this is happening on a day that already emphasizes the themes of place, belonging, and home.
We want to pay close attention to what is happening in our lives and in the world between 1:19 pm ET/5:19 pm UT. This timeframe foreshadows the Sagittarius cycle beginning December 18 (which will be an amazing lunar month). This timeframe also will provide some answers, understanding, wisdom, or guidance that we seek. Pay particular attention to animal sightings.
If your spiritual vision needs improvement, be certain to ask for it. Higher forces are taking requests.
Today’s energetics are cultured, refined, and dignified. Take your place because Divine Providence is finding you.
“Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string. Accept the place the divine providence has found for you, the society of your contemporaries, the connection of events.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
