3rd Quarter Libra “Judge’s Moon” at 26 degrees at January 17, 2020, at 4:58 AM PST/5:58 AM MST/6:58 AM CST/7:58 AM EST
Welcome to the ending of this Capricorn stellar lunar cycle. The 3rd Quarter “Judge’s Moon” in Libra declares an end to the imbalances in the world. The Cosmic Court issues a proclamation that “Love and Forgiveness shall reign for all in 2020″. Isn’t that nice? Take this last week of the lunar cycle to wind down and let go of all that is unnecessary in your life. The energy that is stirring inside of you is the energy of 2020 and beyond! Next week’s Aquarius New Moon sets your sails for 2024 when Pluto changes signs into Aquarius. Now is your most powerful time to:
1) Know your Natal Astrology
2) Put your Soul Self first
3) Join others who are on the Soul Purpose fast-track
When you join the Lunar Ladies Club, you will get the tools to find your True Self. Shannon says, “When you find your True North, you will never feel lost.” Searching inside for your highest Truth will recalibrate your relationship to Self and to others. Your Future Self is calling out to you this week. Get quiet to be open to receiving what is good and useful in the most unexpected places (SO AQUARIUS!). Be of service to others as you move forward into the great Unknown. Your Soul is communicating to you the truth that change is nothing to fear. In fact, change is beautiful! Let yourself be nurtured in a myriad of ways in the Lunar Ladies Club!
Mars & Venus: INNER BALANCE
Mars, your Inner Masculine, is inviting you to embark on this new journey of the Soul. Refusing the offers of the Universe to help you fly, will not make them go away. They will continue to pursue you wherever you go. The way out of this conundrum is to give in to the Great Adventure! It is actually your heart that is calling and your True Self that wants to be found.
Venus, your Inner Feminine, reminds you that when you allow your emotions to flow and be whatever they want to be, they can wash away confusion and disillusion. Let go of any attachment to them. Don’t repress them. Leave behind over-thinking and allow the cleansing processes to happen. You are being asked to allow the Meaning of Life to emerge joyously from within you. Free yourself and all becomes clear!
ERIS SQUARES THE PATRIARCHY!
Saturn, your Inner Teacher, squares Eris, the Goddess of Discord. Eris loves a good challenge and she is giving you extra power to move and to be free of old, outdated patriarchal structures. Think on your feet and get good at spontaneous expression. All you need is a supportive foundation of confidence, wisdom, and good old-fashion MIRTH. Create and experiment and your essence will shine forth. You may just surprise yourself and others.
Warrioress Eris gifts you extra help as she opposes her sister, Goddess Juno, the Divine Consort, this week. Juno helps you to marry the stillness of your mind. When the mind is still, emotional turbulence subsides and the vast depths of the subconscious awareness can arise. The dynamic between these two Goddesses can bring you to a much deeper awareness of every aspect of your consciousness. You can impart to the world around you clarity that is transcendently healing. Some will recognize your gifts right away and be eternally grateful while others may only be able to experience it for a moment at a time. Make it your directive to become more aware in 2020. Knowing your Astrology is an easy place to start!
~ JUDGE’S MOON ~
Shannon’s Astro Energetic Break-down
3rd Quarter Moon Energetics:
Third Quarter Moon dynamics embrace the powers of Letting Go, Releasing, and Forgiveness. This lunar stage focuses on the wounds outside yourself by drawing you inward to understand who may have hurt, offended, diminished, or neglected you. Ask yourself where you may have done this to another. It’s a two-way mirror that, when you take an honest look at yourself, gives you your power back. This week helps you to empty your ego and allow the Universe to assist you in feeling more supported. Reflect upon your experiences over the last three weeks with the Capricorn New Moon, 1st Quarter Aries Moon, and Cancer Full Moon as your focus points. The more you can let go, the more space there is to create in the New Moon in Aquarius next week celebrating the Year of the Rat!
Judge’s Moon: DECISIONS
The “Judge’s Moon” strikes the gavel and makes judgments on the actions of others. The waning 3rd Quarter Moon appears in the Halls of Justice ready to disperse karmic retributions. This is the time of challenging the “wrong-doers” and becoming overly judgmental. Resist the temptation to point your finger. Instead, let the books of Cosmic Law intervene on your behalf. Reflect upon the ways that you judge yourself. Learn from these wounded places so that you can nourish yourself in 2020. If you become “irked” by the selfish actions of others, look inside to where you may feel annoyed at your own ways of being. This is where the power of the Judge’s Moon presides. Once you discover a place within yourself that is out of harmony with the Greater Good, release it with love and forgiveness.
17th Lunar Mansion ~ “The Sword”
The “Judge’s Moon” passes through the 17th Lunar Mansion this week. This Cosmic Mansion of “The Sword” is guarded by Mars and Saturn. With the 3rd Quarter Moon, the Sword of the 17th Lunar Mansion can cut away old ties. Look for where lies, trickery, and thievery exist. Outside influences can no longer imprison your right to be sovereign and free. Success at the Soul-level is an abundance and wealth of awareness and truth. Ask yourself, “What do I freely give my attention to? Does it serve my greater good ?” If your answer is “No”, let the focus of your attention on low vibrations GO! Take this week to change the channel of your awareness. Put your electronic devices down. Go outside and look up to the sky. Breathe in life. Soak up the sunshine. When you recognize and identify low energy cords, hooks, and attachments in your life, cut them with the power of the 17th Mansion’s Sword. Your personal energy is your divine sovereignty and this is worth protecting.
MOON VS. SUN: 3RD QUARTER (WANING)
Moon at 26 degrees Libra:
“A painting that will not dry.”
The Judge’s Moon shows you that nothing is set in stone – everything can be changed (remember last week’s Full Moon message?!). This lunar week has you helping others make changes that they may have never thought they could. These decisions may be fuzzy and unclear. Don’t let yourself get frustrated. Keep your mind open so you can feel what direction to follow. The Moon is here to help you realize the great spiritual importance of giving to others. This choice creates Merit, or good karma, to ultimately gain self-fulfillment. The tremendous power of desire can be harnessed and used to further the evolution of humanity.
Venus, the ruler of Libra, likes to work with a wide variety of vibrations. Venus inspires your imagination and wants to bring your inner visions into physical reality. Reflect on what would make the world a brighter place. You can shift negativity into positivity. The Goddess helps you transform fear into faith, anger to love, and sadness to joy. Just allow the wonder of nature to shine forth through you.
Sun at 26 degrees Capricorn:
“A group of fish at the edge of a pool. They are looking up at someone.”
The Sun shines its light upon your ability to look beyond your own perception of reality. What is your current frame of reference to other planes of existence? What do you believe in? Are you open to other ideas? The Sun wants you to be patient, receptive, and to use your senses. As you open your mind, new answers will come to you. Empty your mind to receive more universal knowledge. The Sun is guiding you to manifest a quiet inspiration that is coming from divine wisdom in its purest state.
Saturn, ruler of Capricorn and your Inner Teacher, gifts you with the willingness to go with whatever works. Suspend judgment and try new ways of doing things in your life. The Wise Elder within you has a very deep and powerful faith in the Universe. There is so much more to the world than there appears to be. Your open mind will find more success and advancement, both worldly and spiritually in 2020. Be open!
Wrap Up: BIG PICTURE
In the Big Picture, you have the gift for both pointing the way and living the way. Continue moving down your infinite path of experience and don’t stay in any place for long – unless you need to. Keep going with the flow even if you feel stuck along the way. Being stuck is like subconsciously loitering. Bring your subconscious into a more conscious state of Awareness. How?
