Full Moon in Aries 2014
Insights into the astrological energies of the moment
by Stephen Bayliss
April 2014. With the full moon falling in Aries and the start of the spiritual festival, there is some amazing planetary activity at the moment. One only need look at the chart to see that this full moon and the time in the immediate weeks is bringing in new, powerful changes and energies; but with Libra opposite Aries, there is a need to find the right balance in doing this. The whole situation at the moment is one of powerful energies and the need to learn how to balance them properly for the benefit of all.

The fact that the mantram for Aries is “I come forth and from the plane of mind I rule“, plus also the fact that mercury (representing the mind and messenger of the gods) is in Aries and that it is the esoteric ruler of Aries, suggests both will and the power of one’s mind is very powerful at this time.
I come forth and from the plane of mind I rule
Opposite to this is Mars, conjunct the moon, and we can see why the balancing of one’s emotions and not enforcing our will upon another (Russia, America, Venezuela) is really an act of balance at the moment, one that is power packed with the grand cross of Pluto, Jupiter, Uranus and Mars. One can only marvel at the divine architect who designed all of this to happen during the start of the annual spiritual festival, in a time for humanity where huge transformations are taking place, so that these four planets would meet and create such tension that humanity will be required to act.
The fact that it is all in the cardinal element suggests we may be experiencing influences from the Spiritual Hierarchical, Shamballa and beyond, given that they only operate when the energy is such that it maximises its effect, due to the spiritual law of economy.
It is a great time to learn the use of the mind and will
Jupiter is still a key to this chart. It sits, at the time of a huge full moon, on top of the chart. As indicated before, the fact that it is in cancer means that it is bringing faith and optimism to the grand cross, giving us a sense that though there is tension in the air, things are changing, have faith that humanity will be still nurtured and cared for, that something higher is coming through. Jupiter can be idealistic though and excessive which might, at the moment, be stimulating people and groups who feel that they are acting on an idea that they believe is right and that is perhaps god ordained, that they have the right to impose their sense of belief on another.
Jupiter is backed though with a nice and supportive trine from Venus, Neptune and Chiron, all in Pisces the world saviour. This brings in a wonderful healing, beautiful, loving energy which supports the faith, higher ideals and wisdom of Jupiter. The fact that they are both in water, probably suggests that there are many emotions and cleavages healing while we go through our grand cross, that we should try to see beauty in our environment and how Neptune is supporting it with a higher sense of the divine.
One only need look at the missing Malaysian flight to see that it has brought together many nations in cooperation with a seemingly impossible task.
The ruler of this chart for the full moon, sitting on the ascendant, is Scorpio, suggesting we are indeed facing some of the depths of the hidden and darker sides, yet it needs to be this way as the light of consciousness needs to shine through.
