Full Moon Cycle started today Tuesday(!) AT 8:05 am when the moon/sun opposition was at 4 degrees: Taurus Moon/ Sun Scorpio. Sabian symbol wisdom blends` the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow’ with that of the ‘Youth holding a lighted candle in a devotional ritual. ‘Let’s do a little exploration with the images, Yes? Both images refer to `light’; a rainbow displays the light spectrum, the primary colors, the chakra colors… A rainbow is the bridge between heaven & earth....not a bridge of `matter’ but of light. The most recent societal association of `rainbow’ is that of sexual inclusivity in marriage. At the same time…when we light a candle as a gesture of devotion we are focusing our awareness and intention on something greater. In essence we are building a `bridge’ to the divine, inviting the numinous to be with us. Lighting candles within churches have long been an exercise in prayerful supplication.
Perhaps… this full moon is presenting us with an opportunity to connect with the `light’ of spirit.
Perhaps it’s asking us to find the `pot of gold’ …(which of course isn’t `material riches’) but spiritual treasures at the end of the elusive rainbow.Perhaps we should focus our intent to connect with the God of our understanding by indeed lighting a candle. Allow the flame to be a sign of the divine spark within…stretching upward outward & beyond. The third image of course is the LUMINOSITY of the FULL MOON. Let it light the way to Divine Grace!
