Significantly, given that on February 19/20 the US experiences its first Pluto Return since the Founding Fathers, the Leo Full Moon on Wednesday 16th re-activates the degree of the Great American Solar Eclipse of August 2017 which literally occulted/overshadowed the US, dividing it in two.
Conjunct Fixed Star Regulus on the Sphinx Cusp known by the ancients as presaging the fall of Kings and empire, it is a strong activator of karmic destiny, which is playing out in front of our eyes. The first Pluto Return since 1776 in the chart of the United States at 27° Capricorn is not a quick one-off hit. The escalating US 2nd Civil War will continue in one form or another until the US Pluto has completed its Return and goes on to conjunct the karmic US South Node of Fate in 2028 and Moon in Aquarius in the late 2030s.
My article: “Soul Sick Nation: The US Pluto Return 2022-30” plus chart is included in “ Your Survive and Thrive Guide to 2022” in the Shop at: www.hareinthemoonastrology.co.uk
This Snow Moon is full of spiritual revelation and purpose – it signifies a renewal of spirit, a desire to reset and re-evaluate. Square the Nodes of Fate across Taurus /Scorpio in a Fixed Grand Cross it suggests karma coming back around for clearing at both a collective and personal level. A volatile moment for the Russia/Ukraine brinksmanship.
February 14th may officially be Valentine’s Day but on the 16th Venus and Mars are conjunct in Capricorn, evoking passion, love and romance. Squeeze the juice out of this but don’t make any big leaps/commitments just yet.
Have you noticed how much Completion is happening in your Life Stream?
Ahead of the incoming new Magnetics courtesy of the once in 166 years Jupiter/Neptune Conjunction in April, surrendering your old illusions must come first. Whatever veils you have created to restrict your evolution need to be released. It’s time to stop living life at minimum. The old outgrown, incongruent, soulless way of living has to die completely before a new geometry / reality / narrative can form. Follow that flow. Release more. Once you use up all the possible learning from your current experiences, you will naturally, intuitively seek new ones.
Chandra Symbol Full Moon Leo 28
A broken sword.
“Consecration to a higher power. The giving-over of the personal will — the marvel of root change. Coming to the end of your own path, and it is just the beginning of the greater way. The heart must open. The infinite must be born inside. The necessity is there — so much karmic backlog. So many ways to be right and to be wrong. The realisation in the very midst that there is nobody listening to the old tale and everybody is awaiting somebody else to come through. A profound and utter doorway into a great unknown. What has been is finished. What shall be is so very different. And what is now is a question and a prayer and a destiny that must find its redemption.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
