Transiting Mars Trine Natal Uranus: Truth or Dare from Within


With transiting Mars trine natal Uranus, there can be a strong need for change in our lives. We will want change and we will want to make it happen right now. Often these this impulse acted out can come from a place of fear, distrust, misconception, hurt. If we stop ourselves for a moment, we have the power to instead let truth feed these instinctual feelings, which will guide us toward inner change before we embark on our outer changes. A bit of a game of Truth or Dare from within. If you can take the impulsive Uranian energy and play the truth card, then you have everything it takes to go for that wild dare and shake things up in your world.

The lesson to be learned is that it’s not wise to change for the sake of change. Change for a stronger sense of self. Change for a greater independence. Change because you no longer accept your known beliefs and limitations.

Dare to change, but have a drive behind your dare. Let that drive come from within. And let there be truth within.

Because standing alone in your truth is the greatest dare of all.



Full Moon in Aquarius ~ July 22nd, 2013


Full Moon today at 0 degrees Aquarius

~ There’s high, and there’s high, and to get really high – I mean so high that you can walk on the water, that high-that’s where I’m going. ~ George Harrison

Aquarius is the sign that rules the 11th house, the house of dreams, goals, ideals, friendships, groups, the collective whole…and the power that lies in each of these when we take our thoughts to a higher level.

The sun is now in Leo, the sign opposing the full moon. Leo is the sign that rules the 5th house, which can take our thoughts to a heart-centered place as we fulfill true self-expression through pleasure and creative arts.

Although Aquarius is an air sign, it is represented by a symbol for water, two waves. Aquarius is the water bearer, the one who carries water to all those in need in order to replenish, to cleanse. During this full moon, the water bearer can bring forth all the gifts of Jupiter in Cancer, including emotional expansion, which will allow us to lead from the heart.

Considering the abundance of water energy in the last month and the lasting effects of the Grand Water Trine in Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces from July 17th-19th, this full moon is very connected to the source of life and motion that is water. In fact all full moons carry a wave of emotion as the Moon rules the watery sign of Cancer.

This full moon draws in the flowing energy of the Aquarian female, who moves into the future with courage and independence, but with the light of her heart and her mind. The Aquarian goddess will move us in the direction of our soul as we speak our truth. We must let go of the protective Cancer mother who puts her babies’ needs before her own. The goddess assures us that putting ourselves first will lead to greater prosperity for all. She gives us the clarity to speak our truth, understanding that while it may hurt others, there is a soul desire to be filled.

Mars in Cancer gives power and determination to our feelings. Mercury, now turning direct in Cancer, allows us to express these feelings after several weeks of reflection while in retrograde motion. The Aquarian intellect will allow us to sort out our feelings even further and add a dose of practicality to our Mars decisions. The asteroid Pallas is also now in Cancer and will provide us with an internal need to uphold justice, heal those suffering and represent peace to the world.

Happy Full Moon 🙂 Much love & light to you…xoxoxo
