A Full Harvest Moon on Thursday morning at 0Aries at 10:17 (bst) is the very same day of the Autumn Equinox, when the sustaining Sun moves into relationship-orientated Libra (to shortly conjoin karmic Saturn). While the Moon has looked incredibly full for days and heightened emotions, this combination of ‘The Lights’ at play, a vibrant Aries Moon integrating with the Libra Sun, accents an intuitive heart at play; and continues the trend of celestially marking 2010 as a mega-powerful year, full of dramatic turning points, extraordinary revelations and personal realisations.
2010 is no ordinary year. I know I have said this before but it’s worth repeating for newcomers: “I have never seen the planets speak to us in such a direct manner, through the Cardinal Cross of the Central Spiritual Sun, in almost thirty years of star gazing”. The heavens are shouting loud and clear, not just to the spiritual warrior but to all of us to wake up to our full potential. So far to remind us we really are spiritual beings in the human body, we’ve had super-strong eclipses in Capricorn and Cancer in January and July generating major shifts; at the cross-quarter fire festival, ‘Lammas’, our Cardinal cross fully activated the need to find and remain in our centre during this incredible period of accelerated evolution. Thus, it appears the most important celestial events this year happen around solar fire festivals with a strong lunation, suggesting that while the Sun dances and the Moon weaves, spirit and soul entwine to move through the time-space continuum like a double helix, to help us spiral into our cosmic oneness.

Autumn Equinox, however, is the Sun’s yearly twilight stage (in the northern hemisphere) resulting in a time of change of light, to darker, longer nights; and longer days in the south. With a full fiery Moon to activate this point of perfect balance, alongside munificent and magnifying Jupiter with altruistic Uranus, the changes we now experience could be manifold and we may even witness an unexpected reversal; yet all is cosmically designed to ignite the fire of love, and boost self-confidence and self-belief, especially when working towards the welfare of others. Aim now for peace, love, and harmony for all. Through the activity of beauty and love, we conquer fear and impatience and indecision AND we find peace of mind!
As an Equinox Full Moon once again sparks off the Cardinal Cross of the Central Spiritual Sun, we can explore our true self, discover peace in relationship, and develop personal wisdom with spiritual power. And how we each juggle these super-harmonic virtues is revealed in the individual horoscope; much depends upon where the Cardinal directions of Aries, Cancer, Libra Capricorn lie in your birth chart and what planets are found there as to how you will navigate the dynamics of these times.
