The Blessing of a Full Moon of Balance

October 12, 2011,

Every full moon is a blessing of completion and learning, and always appropriate to the condition of man at that time.

The new cycle of ending initiated by this latest full moon of October is all about balance, overshadowed as it is by the astrological (sun) sign of Libra. You could call it polarisation too, where so much around us is poles apart, a different approach to the concept of balance but one that is valid too.

The qualities engendered by Libra or indeed any of the influential signs for each month can be challenging and what we experience through their energies, combined with those of the moon, can be negative as well as positive, but always offering us the chance to learn and grow – and it may not be comfortable always.

We are at the stage now, in our world of human introspection and focus, where the imbalances greatly outweigh the balance and the harmony which is the result of balance seems far away. Now, with the full moon in Libra, the discrepancies between reality and illusion are stark for those who care to see: observe, if you will, a tired financial system teetering on the brink of collapse; a political system increasingly discredited; a society where wealth, for the few, is the arbiter of success; nations where autocrats control the many through abuse and with corruption; and where the warnings of Gaia go unheeded.

Libra, Goddess of Balance, is calling to be heard, and the two weeks ahead, of the moon full and waning in Libra, are our challenge and opportunity to begin to redress the imbalances which shout out to be addressed. Many will choose to ignore the signs which so clearly are there, and the learnings thereby will be made the harder.

Watch in the days which lie ahead, the days of this new cycle, and see how well we will be taught. Balance must come, will come, for the era of material and spiritual polarisation is over. Now is the time, at this full moon, to remember and to give thanks for the blessing.]]>
