Explore Your Dreams: A Full Moon for America

Explore Your Dreams: A Full Moon for America John Trumbull
This full Moon falls right before America’s 236th birthday on July 4th. The country’s solar return chart for this year has a cardinal grand cross demanding a renewed our sense of ourselves as Americans  – Pluto’s square to Uranus will energize America’s Sun/sense of identity.   Mars goes into Libra a few hours before the full Moon, making the 4th leg of the grand cross.  For those of you with planets between 0 – 14* Cancer, you will also have this grand cross for your solar return year.  This is a hard but active configuration that demands that we make changes in our lives – and in our attitudes.   While this grand cross might bring us face to face with outer frustration and inner tension, it can teach us self-discipline and moderation.  Sounds like all of us could use a dose of that, especially in politics. 

A cardinal grand cross has at least one planet in each of the cardinal signs: Pluto in Capricorn is opposite the Sun in Cancer squaring Uranus in Aries opposite Mars in Libra.  Pluto is continuing to expose the decay in our cultural systems, forcing us to really look at ourselves (Sun in Cancer), as individuals and as a country.  He asks, “Is this really what you want to support?  This kind of corporate power?  This level of greed?  This disregard of Life?” The Cancer Sun needs to answer these questions.  Is our way of life really nurturing us?    Mars, just entering Libra, is there to grapple with the issues of fairness and partnership.  How will we resolve our differences?  Do we really need to pull apart, or can we be grown-ups and find solutions to our problems together?  But Uranus in Aries will demand that we stay true to ourselves, because we’ve finally come to ourselves and understand that we each have to stand up for our truth and add our gifts to the world.  At this crisis point in our history, these energies are driving us to make changes that will affect us personally but also collectively.

This cardinal cross operates best when we take action! We need to engage in activities that use our energies to begin something new; at the same time, it demands that we cooperate with others to achieve our purposes.  It sounds like it’s time to work together to create a ‘more perfect union’ rather than continue to draw the line with confrontation.  With Mars and Uranus in the picture, there can be lots of impulsiveness where we overdue aggression and action, ambition and competitiveness.  But if we stay conscious, the situations we face can teach us patience, endurance, inner composure and a focused use of energy.   If we let Mars grapple (which is the original purpose of the Roman god) with our need to cooperate while we let Uranus infuse us with our archetypal identity, we can change the dynamics of the political discussions all over the world.

It's time for us to have fair and balanced discussions about the state of our world.  It's not about them vs. us, but about all of us together.  This is the only world we have and the Earth needs us to realize she is our true home!

Until next time,
Sweet Dreams!
