The Full Moon arrives on the 8th at 1:38 AM Pacific time at 18 Virgo 13. Using our strict 2 degree rule, the Full Moon itself only makes one aspect, a quincunx to Ceres, linking this culmination to harvest, both through Virgo and through the asteroid of nature and nurture. We reap what we’ve sown, plain and simple.
The Sabian for the Full Moon is, ‘A Swimming Race’ We couldn’t have it laid out more cleanly: we find out who won, in whatever venue we have been running a race, but likely connected in some way to the House axis across which this Full Moon lies. We also look at the Sun for a Full Moon: ‘A Master Instructing His Disciple’ This suggests the possibility that the ‘race’ in question is one we have been running with someone close to us, a ‘student’ or our own mentor. It may be time for the student to surpass the teacher, the one who was learning to now teach–in any case it suggests a change in roles that is solid, permanent, and that signifies new duties for all involved. The contact to Ceres links this very strongly to changes in authority, and possibly territory and responsibility, with overtones that what occurs here is an ancient story, the way of nature, or, to get all Disney on you, the circle of life
