Dear Friend and Reader:
I am taking off from writing duties through the February monthly next week, though I do have a few thoughts about today’s Full Moon.
In that spirit, today’s STARCAST looks at the Leo Full Moon chart. The Moon and Sun (in an opposition — that’s the ‘full’ part) are also square Jupiter (90 degrees, tense and exciting) — so beware of various effects of exaggeration.
There’s another important square that I describe, which is Mercury and Mars, square Chiron. I give a good description of that setup, but forgot one thing — Mars square Chiron is in love with the appearance of integrity, which is really about bring rigid rather than integrated. So beware of pretend integrity, which may just be a kind of stiff, unidentified veiled anger or frustration looking for a home.
In a natal chart, Mars square Chiron will work over time to create the inner and outer conditions where integration is inevitable, though it can take a while. Today, it might result in a needless argument. If you’ve got an issue with someone, wait till tomorrow.
I’ve included the chart, and also the video I woke up to after falling asleep at around sunrise with YouTube running — some interesting thoughts; the idea of “tulpamancy” comes through Tanya Luhrmann. It’s a thing: using psychic techniques to create extremely imaginary “friends.”
Beware, they are not always so friendly. This seems to be another old thing revived and retrieved in a new form under full digital/generative AI conditions. In that spirit, look for a return of Journey Without Distance soon, now that I’ve completed the 2024 annual edition.
Thanks for tuning in.
