Tomorrow’s Scorpio Full Moon at 3:16 pm EDT may find you between reminiscence and anticipation. As the luminaries (Taurus Sun and Scorpio Moon) oppose each other with Earth between them, you may have occasion to recall the Cancer Full Moon of mid-January. Should such a recollection occur for you tomorrow, take note so as to begin setting the tone you want for a Pisces Full Moon in September.
What the Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces Full Moons always have in common is that Luna is fully lit in a water sign while opposing an earth-sign Sun. For nearly a year, that commonality has received a boost.
Because of an unprecedented major planet grand water trine (anchored by Neptune at home in Pisces, joined by Saturn in Scorpio, and completed on June 25, 2013, when Jupiter entered its Cancer exaltation), water sign events have seen their potentiality increase to an unprecedented extent for nearly a year.
For example, look back at last year’s ‘all water, all the time’ Mercury retrogrades to get an idea of how the major planet grand water trine has both worked on you and worked for you. In addition to Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, there has been another grand water trine working away on another, lower octave involving minor planets on the fringes of our solar system.
In her January 18, 2014, contribution to Planet Waves, Finnish astrologer Kristi Melto held forth on how that month’s Cancer Full Moon was concurrent with a rare and precise (to the degree) grand water trine featuring far-away 38628 Huya (in Scorpio), 20000 Varuna (in Cancer) and 120347 Salacia (in Pisces).
While the grand water trine involving Huya, Varuna and Salacia has since separated from being exact, it is still functional enough to be perceptible in the low background, like a bass strum in counterpoint to the major planet melody.
Tomorrow’s Scorpio Full Moon will be reminiscent of the first luminary opposition of the year in part because fully lit Luna will be conjunct Huya to the degree for the occasion. Not incidentally, the conjunction of Huya and the Full Moon will also closely trine the lunar position during the Cancer Full Moon of January.
Huya is named after a South American First Nations rain deity, and the name is serendipitous when you consider what reminiscence potentially does both to and for you.
To reminisce is to place yourself on a sharp edge. If remembrance expands to spending all of your time in sentimentality, it can be like being soaked in a cold rain, with all the attendant hazards. On the other hand, all experience is available only through some form of recall, and without recollection you would be bereft of the nourishment only experience can provide.
Hence, one idea for working with what tomorrow’s Full Moon may bring out of the past is to treat it like rain, making the best of it without dwelling long in it. Rather, it will be best to spend more of your time in anticipation.
One of the things you may want to anticipate tomorrow is the impending end of the major planet water trine.
On the zodiac, just as in your life, nearly everything is always in motion, and change is the only constant. Jupiter accumulates scarcely more than a year in any given sign. Hence, just as Jupiter was last in joining the major planet grand water trine, it will be first out when it leaves Cancer behind for Leo on July 16.
Jupiter will not return to Cancer until 2025, just as Neptune concludes its current Pisces tenure and moves on to Aries arm-in-arm with none other than Saturn. It may be reminiscent of now, but it won’t be the same.
The sky will be playing a different tune 11 years from now. That’s how tomorrow’s Scorpio Full Moon will be an appropriate time to anticipate how you may contribute to future compositions even as you reminisce on an unprecedented three-part harmony soon to segue into a new song.
For when you see the Pisces Full Moon overnight between Sept. 8 and Sept. 9, Jupiter will be in Leo. The grand water trine of the major planets will have concluded nearly two months before, and the first notes of a new melody will be sounding. If you want to make the best use of what tomorrow’s Scorpio Full Moon will have to offer, please consider a bit of reminiscence followed by anticipating how you can contribute to what those notes will be.
