Managing Contrasts – Mellow Mars Meets Stubborn Saturn

Managing Contrasts

Mellow Mars meets stubborn Saturn

Jeff JawerJeff Jawer on the topics of saturn, mars, full moon, blogs, astrology

A powerful way to gain more understanding through astrology is to take note of contrasting patterns. Where these exist in a birth mark the fault lines of the personality that are likely to indicate some of the person’s core life issues. For example, someone with the emotional Moon and amorous Venus in sensitive water signs has strong needs for tenderness in relationships. But if this individual has significant placements of independent Mars and Uranus, she or he may be pulled between the contrasting calls of both closeness and freedom. Learning how to skillfully navigate between and connect these different desires is a key to personal fulfillment.

Collectively, we are facing another set of contrasts during the next week or two. The atmosphere could be thick, as if the walls are closing in, with Wednesday’s intense Scorpio Full Moon. This lunation challenges our values and comfort level as the deeply feeling Moon hungers for passion in opposition to the passivity of the placid Taurus Sun. Serious Saturn’s conjunction with the Moon ratchets up pressure to make choices, whether for simple survival or to fulfill a deep yearning for something more in life. We may be tempted to go to extremes by discarding a person, a plan, a project or to abandon hope for greater fulfillment by shutting down pursuit of an unfulfilled desire.

The emotional and material issues associated with this demanding Full Moon can be exhilarating or terrifying, and sometimes both. This is not a light and easygoing lunation but one that can mark the subsequent two weeks with a powerful need to make some important decisions. However, another planetary pattern suggests that accommodation is still possible in the face of these challenges. Normally assertive Mars, the warrior planet, has been retrograde in Libra since March 1. Its reversal in this peacemaking sign indicates the importance of learning to listen and create harmony by making compromises to smooth out relationship rough spots. Mars ends its retrograde period of May 19 as the capacity to initiate action will grow in the following days and weeks.

Mars in Libra

Mars, the traditional ruling planet of persistent Scorpio, works with a lighter hand in Libra. There’s less pushing, shoving or ultimatums during this transit. So while the pressure from Saturn in Scorpio is to draw a line in the sand and refuse to budge, the call of Mars in mellow Libra is to meet others halfway. Does that mean that we have to abandon the hard earned emotional truths of the Full Moon in Scorpio and settle for a life less satisfying? Is this contrast about the necessity to set aside niceness in order to stick to our guns and get our way?

Know what you want

The answer is to find a way to combine the persistence of Scorpio with the graciousness of Libra. In other words, start by being as clear as possible about your desires. Knowing what you want provides a strong foundation upon which to build. Yet we live in a world with other people, which often requires us to adjust our expectations. Mars in Libra is the master negotiator whose ability to recognize others’ needs and to skillfully build a bridge between their wants and ours. When we are certain of our needs (Saturn in Scorpio) we know how to compromise without surrendering the essence of our aspirations. Giving ground without giving up the core of ourselves is an excellent way to take the best of these two powerful and seemingly contrasting trends and apply them to find deeper levels of satisfaction.

Your Horoscopes for Wednesday, May 14th

We may be caught in a web of unresolved feelings today as jealousy, fear and desire warp our perceptions. The emotional power of the relentless Scorpio Full Moon at 3:15 pm EDT hangs heavy as our complex needs are contrasted by the more simplistic Taurus Sun. We are drawn back to the physical world by our need to be more practical. However, a dynamic square between sensual Venus and mysterious Pluto adds depth to an already complicated situation.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Pursuing your desires gets your adrenaline pumping, but feelings can grow more complicated than you expect with the enigmatic Scorpio Full Moon spotlighting your 8th House of Intimacy. You must be cautious when expressing your needs today because it’s difficult to stop once you start to stir up some excitement. Although you’re often the first one to take a risk, it might not be such a good idea now. Believe it or not, sometimes your feelings should be kept to yourself.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Today you could discover that you overcommitted in a relationship, making you feel as if you can’t deliver on what you promised. However, you need to be careful with your assumptions now that the Scorpio Full Moon illuminates your 7th House of Partnerships. You may not even notice that you have taken on too much until it’s too late to change your course. Nevertheless, it’s still wise to reconsider your plans and establish new priorities once you realize that you made a mistake. Taking responsibility for your actions is the right thing to do.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Your daily routine has a strong impact on your overall health and the current stress prompts you to stop and consider how to make things better. But with today’s Scorpio Full Moon shining in your 6th House of Routine, it’s counterproductive to turn your life upside down all at once. Make small improvements without creating chaos. Even a slight upgrade to your exercise regimen or a minor modification to your diet could be enough to add an extra bounce to your step.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might take a relationship too seriously now and try to transform a casual friendship into a full-blown romance. It seems as if it would be easier to lighten the emotional weight, but the unrelenting Scorpio Full Moon’s presence in your 5th House of Love may mean that your feelings are beyond your conscious control. Don’t try to redirect what is in your heart; just let the currents carry you along for the ride today. Remember, it’s prudent to observe your changing desires without impulsively acting on every whim.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may be misled by a close friend or family member who charms you with their convincing sales pitch. It isn’t that you’re naturally gullible, but the Scorpio Full Moon occurring in your 4th House of Home and Family encourages you to trust others if they carry an air of authority. Exercise caution by doing your research before making any promises you might later regret. Reining in your enthusiasm is your best move until you can determine what’s really going on.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your big ideas could sweep you off your feet today. You might attempt to keep everything in a practical perspective but today’s Scorpio Full Moon lights up your 3rd House of Communication, bending your thoughts out of shape. Thankfully, by exercising a little self-restraint, you can minimize problems that arise from inflating a sensible strategy into an overextended one. Wait until next week to finalize your plans. In the meantime, explore all the possibilities without the pressure of commitment.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You might need to be conservative about spending money on discretionary activities while the magnetic Scorpio Full Moon stretches your 2nd House of Resources out of shape. However, you still may be tempted to purchase something prior to analyzing the real costs. If you’re unsure of what to do, ask for advice from a trustworthy friend or a financial expert. Thankfully, involving someone else in your decision-making process will bring clarity as to whether or not you can really afford to satisfy your desires now.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It seems as if time has run out, making you aware of how much work you have on your plate today. You may decide to postpone a previously scheduled getaway to finish a project that’s on a very tight schedule. Additionally, the passionate Scorpio Full Moon emphasizes the urgency of your feelings as it lights up your 1st House of Self. Although your initial response might be to focus on your responsibilities and delay your fun, there is room for both work and play. Instead of giving up all of your freedom, make a plan that allows you to meet your deadlines and chase your dreams, too.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your current schedule may be packed, yet you’re still clever enough to turn your work into play. Nevertheless, your day probably won’t unfold the way you planned it since the Scorpio Full Moon activates your 12th House of Destiny. However, your temporary lack of judgment encourages you to get involved in one too many projects now. Ultimately, it’s less stressful for you, and certainly more considerate of everyone else, if you set reasonable limits before making any more promises you can’t keep.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You want to be more involved with others now, even if you don’t have enough time for yourself. You may be overwhelmed with one too many commitments while the intense Scorpio Full Moon aligns with restrictive Saturn in your 11th House of Social Networking. However, avoiding your personal needs only increases your anxiety. Establishing priorities is a sensible place to start, but only if you add your heart’s desires to the list. It’s fine to be attentive to the wishes of everyone else as long as yours don’t get lost in the shuffle.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You secretly enjoy it when others acknowledge your wisdom by seeking you out for advice. You might even feel hurt if they go to someone else for help first. However, your motives may not be completely clear today with the subjective Full Moon brightening your 10th House of Responsibility. You could be more interested in being distracted from your own problems now than you are in solving anyone else’s predicaments. Fortunately, you can still be of assistance to those you love, no matter what your reasons are in the moment, as long you have their best interests at heart.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

If you have been dreaming about furthering your studies, this is your chance to pursue something completely different from your current interests. You may need to make an important decision about going back to school now that the provocative Scorpio Full Moon illuminates your 9th House of Higher Education. Unfortunately, you could get lost in the logistics of unrealistic goals. But rather than setting your plans aside in frustration, try modifying them to align more closely with reality. Bringing your vision down to earth makes it much easier to manifest.

Your Full Moon in Scorpio Horoscopes for May 14th

Full Moon in Scorpio Horoscopes

What are willing to give up this Full Moon?

Jeff JawerJeff Jawer on the topics of scorpio, moon, horoscope, full moon, astrology

 

The Taurus Sun loves simplicity but this opposition from the Moon in intense Scorpio on May 14, 2014 requires a deeper look at self-worth issues. Serious Saturn’s conjunction to the Moon adds a layer of responsibility and, perhaps, doubt and delays. These are most likely to come up around resources, especially money, but relationships are also subject to close scrutiny. Knowing what you need and what you’re willing to give to get it is a key to using this revelatory lunation.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Financial and emotional alliances are up for review with this intense Scorpio Full Moon in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. Patience, persistence and a clear sense of purpose are required with strict Saturn’s conjunction to the Moon. It’s essential to know what you need and to carefully calculate the costs and benefits before putting more of yourself into a project or partnership that’s likely to take more time to settle.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Relationships are highlighted with this demanding Scorpio Full Moon in your 7th House of Others. The lunar conjunction with serious Saturn requires you to be as clear as possible about your expectations and committment. This is not a time for bargains because hard work is the price to pay for a useful personal or professional alliance. It’s better to say no or take more time than to jump into an uncertain situation.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The focus is on work and health with this Scorpio Full Moon in your 6th House of Health. Minimizing distractions is a key to building up your vitality, developing professional skills and putting your daily routine into order. Sticking to a schedule is not your ideal mode of operation but makes a great deal of sense now. Focusing on one critical issue or task at a time enhances your worth and reduces complications.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Romance, creativity and kids are key themes of this powerful Scorpio Full Moon in your 5th House of Self-Expression. A lunar conjunction with serious Saturn puts a premium on patience since issues and opportunities in these areas will take time to resolve. It’s helpful to be tuned into your own desires and make them a priority instead of starting by trying to satisfy others. When you’re happy you have more to give.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Digging deep into your past and family issues is expected with this powerful Scorpio Full Moon in your 4th House of Roots. Serious Saturn’s lunar conjunction signals the need to make a plan and stick to it. Whether you’re cleaning up old business, fixing the house or facing realities about yourself, being patient and focused will help you to solidify your private life and put you on a stronger platform to support your professional ambitions.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Serious conversations, perhaps about secrets that come to light, are connected with this intense Scorpio Full Moon. It lands in your 3rd House of Information and Communication where precise speech, deep research and profound study are needed. Focusing your attention on a single subject can be tedious, but is a way to advance your education and finding the intellectual  and emotional strength to address difficult issues.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Money matters count heavily with this Scorpio Full Moon in your 2nd House of Resources. Avoid impulsive expenses that may look like bargains but wind up being costly. Managing your time and energy is equally important, so set your priorities and stick to them. If you’re feeling underappreciated, commit to a practice of self-improvement and remember that hard work brings big rewards.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

This Full Moon in your sign is a time of commitment. It lands in your 1st House of Self-Image to focus attention on your health, appearance and attitude. Stern Saturn’s conjunction with the Moon, however, could put your situation in a negative light. Fortunately, a steady friend or partner can remind you of your untapped resources and help to raise your self-esteem. Commitment to slow and steady progress wins the race.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Taking a retreat from the pressures of daily life is appropriate with this Full Moon in your 12th House of Privacy. Communing with nature and doing spiritual practices are ways to reconnect with a wider vision of your life. Strict Saturn’s conjunction to this Full Moon, though, could make you feel confined or ignored, but instead of fighting for attention turn your attention away from the world to regenerate and restart.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Working within an organization and your relationships with friends could reach a critical point with this Full Moon. It occurs in your 11th House of Groups in the intensely passionate sign Scorpio. A lunar conjunction with your serious planet Saturn indicates that you may have to make a tough decision about a pal, plan or co-worker. Either get control of the situation or consider ending it and putting your energy elsewhere.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Professional matters and public responsibilities could reach a critical point with this potent Scorpio Full Moon in your 10th House of Career. You might be carrying more than your fair share of burdens and feel like you’ve hit a wall. If that’s the case, this lunation signals the need to get help from others. Doing so will make you a more effective leader, which could be a make or break issue in your success at work.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

This serious Scorpio Full Moon occurs in your 9th House of Beliefs, Travel and Higher Education, which can run you into some obstacles in these areas. It’s the proximity of strict Saturn to the Moon that might slow you down or cause you to doubt your plans. Serious planning and patience are the medicine that can bolster hope with hard work and take you to that distant place your heart wants to go.
