We have strong energies supporting us towards transformation right now. This "support" however may feel like we're being catapulted into the unknown.. as there is a strong T-square that takes over the entirety of the chart for this Leo Full Moon. We are essentially being challenged right now, in ways that are rely personal for our soul. As I discuss in the broad cast the challenge is actually a simple one, to simply keep going. To continue to beat the drum of the world we want to see, to vibrate and breathe and be the way we want to feel.. because it is our fee willed choice.
In general, astrological aspects show a dialogue between planetary principles/ energies, but the t-square configuration is a dynamic pattern that links and inter- locks these energies. By its very nature, a T-square ties up at least three houses in a chart, and if we take into account each leg’s rulership of other houses, this configuration can link even more.
Have a look at the chart for this full moon below.
A T-square looks like a big triangle, it is formed when (at least) two planets in opposition (180°) both aspect a third planet by square (90°). This third planet, known as the focal planet or apex, is situated around the midpoint of the opposition.
Here we have the moon at the bottom of the chart opposing the sun at the top (Sun is conjunct Jupiter and Saturn). The moon and sun are both square to Uranus, Mars and Black Moon Lilith (which sits and the 9 o’clock point or ascendant of this chart.)
The challenging nature of the opposition invites an awareness and balance of the planets involved. Ideally, there can be an integration of these seemingly conflicting parts. An opposition involves a polarity (in the case of the chart for this full moon we have Leo–Aquarius), and it’s important to understand the interplay between these signs. Leo rules the heart and is regal, self-confident, exuberant and committed. Aquarius rules the higher mind and is extroverted while fighting of a cause, seeking freedom and radical change/reform. The polarity presented here (remember polarity is an illusion in realms beyond the 3rd dimension!) is the refined regal nature of Leo and the other worldly nature of Aquarius. They aren’t necessarily that different but this opposition shows us the ways that each sign is unique.
Both ends of this opposition are in square to the focal planet, in this case a bundle of conjoined planets (Mars, Uranus and Black Moon Lilith in Taurus). Squares appear as dynamic seeming obstructions along our path — they require effort in order to create something of value. Our greatest life accomplishments can be described by the nature of the planets in square to each other. At worst, they can seem like the hardest tests we face; we feel frustrated or paralyzed until we master them. With squares, we are invited to remember the nature of fear: it is simply a obstacle for us until we become present and simply choose to keep going on the path of our heart's desire.
