Mars (Aries) and Venus (Libra)
This Full Moon comes packed with a lot energy to balance opposition, difference and misunderstandings. We see this in the opposites of the Aries/Libra, Mars/Venus, Fire/Air, and Male/Female; and the need to balance everything. We need to learn to see better and to balance our lives in various ways. We will work more in detail at the gathering on 5 October at 7pm. The book that sums this up in the relationship between men and woman, Mars and Venus, Aries and Libra is, for me, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.
Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus (1992) is a book written by American author and relationship counselor John Gray, after he had earned degrees in meditation and taken a correspondence course in psychology. The book states that most common relationship problems between men and women are a result of fundamental psychological differences between the sexes, which the author exemplifies by means of its eponymous metaphor: that men and women are from distinct planets—men from Mars and women from Venus—and that each sex is acclimated to its own planet’s society and customs, but not to those of the other. One example is men’s complaint that if they offer solutions to problems that women bring up in conversation, the women are not necessarily interested in solving those problems, but mainly want to talk about them. The book asserts each sex can be understood in terms of distinct ways they respond to stress and stressful situations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Men_Are_from_Mars,_Women_Are_from_Venus
The pictures below, capture the Venus/Aries theme so well. Thank you Marie-France Samba
This Full Moon asks us to look at all our relationships full on. How do feel about this person and how important are they to you? If they are important – a phone call goes a long way to talk or to arrange a time to meet up and talk. I believe that it is better to talk than to text or email. Something always gets lots in translation.
Remember the movie: Lost in Translation? In the movie, the couple are lost for many reasons – they are lost in their own lives and in their individual relationships, as well as, with each other. They are lost in their communication with each other. Where could you be lost in your life and in your relationship? Where could you communicate more and bring more presence into your relationship.
Sometimes Down is Up. Sometimes Up is Down. When you are Lost you are Found. When you are Found you are Lost. This is the contradiction of this Energy of Now with the amazing Full Moon, which brings a lot of energies to play in your life. Let us bring you back home to your own self worth and empowerment in our gathering.
Were are your oppositions? Where are your angry words? Who is upsetting you? Who do you need to communicate your anger to? Where are you needing to explain yourself? Are you explaining calmly or angrily? Life really is a challenge living with others, as well as, interacting with each other.
What will you be celebrating this Full Moon? What will you be complaining about this Full Moon? Who will you have argued with? Who will you have disagreed with? Who will you have ‘fought’ with? Who will you ‘have a word’ with? The Energy of Mars is very strong with this Full Moon. Can Venus calm things down?
Every great movie, like Game of Thrones, require a lot of planning and preparing the space, actors learning their lines, costumes, etc. The amount of workmanship is amazing. Timing and precision is important to get the scenes to follow through. The same in life, in business and in relationships. What have you prepared for, that has pumped you up? Have you created a space that the Goddess of Venus would like to relax in or is it more for the God of Mars? What have you prepared for this Full Moon? What have you achieved? Come let us celebrate your success.
You have a skill that serves you and you are pleased with it. As time goes on, you find you need new skills. There has to be a change to your skills – an upgrade. It is time for a change. You need to change a few things and you find that you do not have the skills. You learn new skills or you hire someone to do the skill you need. You can hire a secretary, a cleaner, a marketing person, a nanny, a business coach, a spiritual coach and an alchemist. You know you have to change – you know you have to do something to achieve fullness in your life. What is this reflecting in your life with this Full Moon. There is the play of ‘yes’ and ‘no’; ‘do it’ and ‘don’t do it’. The swing of the pendulum is not forgiving – it is extreme. You have to make a decision and take action. What actions have you taken with the Full Moon?
Death is the enemy of Life. We all will die one day, just not today. Aries is the baby of the Zodiac and the first sign of the Zodiac. It hates being ignored like a baby. Is forceful like a baby. Is controlling like a baby. It is sweet like a baby. It is cute like a baby. It also needs training like a baby does.
In the wonderment of you, are you living your Truth? If the answer is Yes, What is your Truth? Are you living a Lie? If the answer is Yes, What is your Lie? Does speaking your Truth help you with establishing your Boundaries? How attuned are you to yourself and to others?
Do you give others more importance than yourself? Remember to give yourself importance and allow yourself to bloom. See yourself and smile at yourself – like this wonderful picture her with me and Connie taken by Marie-France. Be seen by others, as well as, by yourself. I love this picture of Smiling Truth.
Do you attend to your needs and listen to your intuition? What Whispers of Insight are you receiving this Full Moon in Aries with the Sun in Libra? How is your Truth coming out this Full Moon?
There are so many ways to Happiness – have you found yours? Perhaps the Fire Element of Aries will help you find yours? There are many ways of prayer – not one way – many ways. So there are many ways of Happiness, to Happiness and for Happiness. What is your way of Happiness, to Happiness and for Happiness? Celebrate this Full Moon.
ARIES and LIBRA
Aries and Libra are both Cardinal Signs, making them direct, active and great at initiating things.
Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and the baby, so always cries when it does not like something, until it gets what it wants. Are you doing this? Are you shouting? Are you constantly seeking attention, hating to be ignored? Do you barge in when you are told to ‘stop’ and given a ‘no’? Are you being forceful and a bit of a bully, but cannot see it? Aries will tell you they are focused and determined and they are. They sometimes forget how intimidating they may appear and may come across as bullies. Be mindful of your energy with this Full Moon.
Being Natural born leaders, they can have a drive and focus that is outstanding and impressive. Being warrior like they are not afraid of confrontation and will willingly go into battle. Think of a baby grabbing something and not letting it go – that you are surprised at the strength of its grip, focus and determination.
Aries can be determined, adventurous, impulsive and aggressive. Aries can single-mindedly start a project and complete an impossible task. They love to fight for a cause they believe in. Think of a baby crying for its food – it never stops till it gets fed.
MARS is the planet that rule Aries. Mars is also the name of the God that rules Aries. Mars is competitive, is a natural born warrior with lots of vitality, energy and power. Think of the baby smiling happily at you – LOOKING confidently at you, making you smile back, ready to play and share its happy energy with you. This is the happy energy, where you fall in love with the baby.
FIRE is engaging, charismatic, enthralling and dangerous all at once. It is warming, comforting, healing and adventurous. Fire is vital, spontaneous and enthusiastically happy and playful. Think of a baby happily playing with its foot and totally content. That is the Aries energy, self-absorbed in its own world.
I love the energy of Aries – it says to you – Come let us do it – I am with you – I will help you get the courage to do this.
The symbol for Libra is the Scales – all about balancing things and fairness in all matters. Libra sees both sides of a situation and sometimes this can make it difficult to choose sides. Libra can be indecisive. A natural diplomat, Libra is constantly seeking harmony in relationships. The need to balance things out is very strong. Libra avoids confrontation, unlike Aries, who charges forward into battlefield. .
AIR: The Sun of this Full Moon in is Libra, making the Element Air. Air is freedom and space. It is Communication, the Mind, the Intellect and the Rational Mind. Voice is heart through sound and space.
Libra communicates with and without words. The body language can be deceptive with Libra energy but soon the Truth is revealed. Libra does not like to feel trapped or told what to do. It does what it wants to do like a baby, similar to Aries.
NEGATIVE LIBRA: Libra can be offensive without speaking a word and can sabotage a network if it so pleases. You see this in the behaviour e.g. such as not doing or completing a project Libra promised they would do. In this way Libra can sabotage your work and your relationship; taking control and stalling your project, and looking innocent like a baby! Be mindful of the Libran underhand here with this Full Moon.
VENUS: Libra is ruled by Venus, Goddess of Love, and we have the energy of Libra and Mars working together and opposing each other. Will we have love and peace or hate and war? Goddess of Love vs. Goddess of War. Feminine vs. Masculine. Venus seeks co-operation, co-creation and unity. Venus promotes art, peace, beauty and love.
I love the contradiction of the element Air and Scale of Libra. I love the contradiction of the element Fire and Mars. In the balance of your life were are you as you journey to the end of the year?
