With the astrological month of Cancer slightly more than a month a way, this is a great time to examine the impact of the ruling planet of the Sign of the Crab-the Moon. The true Goddess of the Evening Sky is known by many names: Diana (Roman), Artemis/Hekate/Selene (Greek), Arianrhod (Celtic), Dae-Soon (Korean), Coyolxauhqui (Aztec), Chandra (Hindi), Oolijee(Navajo) are some examples. Perhaps her most common nickname is Luna, the Roman Goddess who, like Selene before her, was the personification of Earth’s closest celestial neighbor.
Almost universally referred to in the feminine (which begs the question of where the Man in the Moon fits in), Luna’s role in influencing the tides and cycles in general here on Earth was known from antiquity across most cultures. Yet to those who look to the heavens to chart the future, the effect of the Moon is so much more. With significant lunar events occurring in a short span in the next 30 days, the potency of that beacon of the night sky will be even more enhanced.
The Moon deals with emotions and those internal rhythms which dictate how we react to the challenges in our lives. It could be said that the Moon’s key energy is one of “reaction”. Much as it reflects the light of the sun, so too does Luna also reflect our internal light. Our memories, dreams, imagination, feelings are all impacted by lunar cycles. Agricultural cycles, animal behavior, fluids, opinions, the sea (and all on or under it) moods, births, deaths and insanity also owe psychical allegiance to Artemis Diana as she shines down upon this frail blue orb.
The Super Moon which occurs on May 5th. I have written previously, both here on Psychic Cosmos and elsewhere about what a Super Moon is. Much like the Super moon that occurred on March 19th 2011, the effects of this full illumination will be felt far beyond the actual day. To begin with, the heightened emotions of Cinco de Mayo are going to be enhanced by Luna’s energies. But, mingled with the copious amounts of alcohol and partying, chances for erroneous impressions, over reacting emotionally, and impulsive behavior that could have far reaching consequences, particularly on the political stage, may be brought to the forefront “by the light of the silvery moon”.
Since the holiday is a celebration of the defeat of the French on May 5th, 1862 by Mexican forces, it would not be surprising if France and or Mexico again were illuminated by this Super Moon as part of the sesquicentennial anniversary. Given that the second round run-off of the Presidential Election is also scheduled for May 5th and 6th, there could be a literal turning of the tides that could shape not only the political but financial landscape of the Eurozone as well.
As if a full moon, the Super Moon phenomena, and Cinco de Mayo weren’t enough, Luna also goes void of course on both May 4rh and May 6th. In astrology, the term “void of course” refers to the time that the moon is between signs. Although it can be a relatively short period-often in minutes or hours-that time period is a time when mistakes are made, chaos on various levels can ensue, and nothing works right. With everything out of sync, the best advice is to be still and ride out the time.
Ironically, the Super Moon, Full Moon, Cinco de Mayo is bracketed by two of these periods. That combination could impact communications-both through failing altogether or being jumbled and misunderstood much like a Mercury Retrograde on astrological steroids but for a shorter time frame. Any plans, particularly those on a national or global scale will fall far short of their intended results and, in some instances, could be-in modern parlance-an epic fail.
