Sagittarius Full Moon - Personal Independence

"They may call you Doctor or they may call you Chief
But you're going to have to serve somebody, yes indeed'"

— Bob Dylan - "Gotta Serve Somebody"

Last week's powerful Fixed T-square with Mars, Pluto, and Jupiter — as it approached the North Node — has fostered this week's intense, determined, ego-driven desire for independence and self-reliance. Mars, now in confidence-boosting Leo, has escaped the initial challenges of the opposition to Pluto but now faces a tricky quincunx from Saturn in Pisces. Essentially, the challenge from Saturn asks us to consider and balance the needs of others with our own personal ambitions and aspirations. Such challenges and considerations effectively block any sort of expedient resolutions. The issues of blending the demands of the material world with spiritual reality are at the heart of this week's tension. Compassion and connection — and the importance of compromise — may seem to be stumbling blocks that are in the way of individual achievement and the gratification of our individual egos. But there doesn't seem to be an easy way to simply ignore the 'greater good' here and so we may find ourselves on the defensive, displaying obvious arrogance, rather than honest acknowledgement of our connection to something 'larger than ourselves'. Vesta makes a conjunction to Uranus on Tuesday, creating additional intensity, along with increased demands for the sacrifice of our personal ambitions. The questions that are raised seem to destroy any hope for expedience, keeping quick, easy solutions out of reach. Any attempts at decisiveness tend to look more like impulsiveness rather than providing any clear sense of direction. Mercury escapes the shadow of the last retrograde period midweek. While we may begin to think about new possibilities, there may also be a rather uneasy feeling that we have entered 'uncharted territory'. By Thursday, Jupiter — the linchpin of last week's T-square — arrives at the North Node and serves to help ease the tension and unlock some of the stressful, ego-driven complications. A Venus-Neptune trine is punctuated by Friday's Scorpio Moon, creating a Grand Water Trine, which further erodes the stubborn, fixed-sign grip on our consciousness. In some way or another, a 'relief valve' is opened enough to release the pressure. The Sagittarius Full Moon (8:41 PM PDT 13° Sagittarius/Gemini) at the end of the week, which will be followed up by a Mercury-Uranus conjunction, will begin to allow us to find new insights and new ways of balancing personal independence with the principle of 'loving thy neighbor'.

Sunday's distractions create an impatient desire to help others just enough to get them out of our way. Showing compassion may be only a means to an end. Compassion or consideration for others seems inconvenient on Monday. Making sacrifices to find common ground is especially unappealing. The need for sacrifice and balance intensifies on Tuesday. Careful, methodical consideration is needed. New information may confuse us. We may feel that we are in 'uncharted territory' on Wednesday. Pride may produce defensiveness but spontaneous breakthroughs are possible in the evening. Tensions seem to subside a bit on Thursday. However, we aren't especially inclined to openly share our vulnerabilities in order to fully clear the air. A 'relief valve' is opened on Friday, allowing a great deal of 'Steam Pressure' to be released. However, we don't see many true breakthroughs. Balance and awareness are easier to find on Saturday. We are more comfortable blurring the lines between personal freedom and the 'greater good'.
