“Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”
This morning’s Full Moon (3:45 AM PDT 17° Scorpio/Taurus) sets the stage for major shifts of power and control. There is potential for new leadership principles to emerge in important ways. Today provides us with an important testing ground for new approaches and new ideas about how to move forward in entirely new and surprising directions. Nonetheless, there are powerful temptations to simply step back or step away from any challenges, rather than rise to the challenge that this Full Moon presents. However, what has been seen cannot be unseen and the Moon’s trine to Neptune, just after Full Moon, suggests a great deal of intuitive guidance that informs us that we cannot stay on the sidelines for very much longer — no matter how much we may want to. The Moon goes void-of-course at 7:38 PM PDT this evening.
The potent Scorpio full moon opposes the sun in Taurus this morning, marking the end of a cycle that began with the Taurus new moon two weeks ago. With potent aspects seeding the energy of this lunation, expect this to get emotional. At the time of the lunation, Mercury sextiles Neptune, bringing information that’s music to your ears or that could potentially change everything. Be imaginative, creative, loving, honest, real, and transparent and you can communicate effectively and learn what you need to know.
As the day progresses, the full moon trines Neptune, opposes Mercury, sextiles Pluto, squares Mars, sextiles Jupiter, and finally enters Sagittarius overnight, suggesting a powerful transformation is underway. The energy is sensual, sexual, creative, transformative, and emotional, offering profound release and resurrection.
Taurus-Scorpio is one of the most powerful axes of the zodiac. Both are fixed signs. Taurus is an earth sign that represents fertility and life, and Scorpio is a water sign and is the sign of death, decay, and change.
Life is changing from the core, restructuring the shape of your life and landscape, shifting relationships and power dynamics that have long been in place. Move slowly, surrender to the changes that are unfolding, and you can navigate this territory consciously.
