March 26th ~ April 2nd
In a futile attempt to erase our past, we deprive the community of our healing gift. If we conceal our wounds out of fear and shame, our inner darkness can neither be illuminated nor become a light for others. ~ Brennan Manning (The Cry of the Heart for Intimate Belonging)
The Full Moon on Sunday at 8º Libra 18’ is directly opposite Venus and the centaur, Chiron. Full Moons can be revelatory. They can bring things in our lives to some sort of crisis point that can no longer be contained. Our Hearts, our Emotions, our deepest Wounds are laid bare, so that they can no longer be denied. An event, a comment, a passing gesture can be sufficient in such times to open up an entire basket of wounds, doubts, shame, traumas from some earlier time. Revisited, revealed, unfolding itself, in all its putrid despair; we are being given choices. We can ignore the fact that the wound exists, and with prayers and wishes hope that it will just go away. Or we can courageously confront our wounds, our shame, our traumas, with the heartfelt determination to heal them once and for all.
Libra is a sign of detente. The Full Moon may be making a peace offering. Extending an olive branch. Or perhaps the Full Moon is unveiling those old wounds while offering an opportunity to heal them. Venus in Aries entrapped by Chiron is not only revealing old traumas, but digging up all the elements of self-blame, self-doubt, self-incrimination from some earlier time in our lives. She says if I can unburden myself of these traumas, if I can put down my arms and my defenses, then I can build better bridges with others, and can serve as an example for others to be inspired to do the same.
Whatever is being illuminated by the Full Moon, whatever is standing in the way of us being able to make heartfelt connections with others, can be healed. We can begin by nurturing ourselves and others through forgiveness and acceptance. We cannot change the past. But we can begin by creating a New Ending, predicated with New and better Beginnings. We can make a commitment that This Will No Longer Be. By putting aside our inhibitions, our shame, and our fears, we can then move forward. The human condition is what it is, and we are all floundering here trying to find our footing, as clumsy as we may be. The human condition is what it is, but it can also be improved.
When we are willing to look at our wounds, without shame and blame and disgust. Then we can heal them. And as a consequence open the way for self-improvement, and growth. For interlaced with all those wounds are some of our greatest gifts and talents. And because we no longer have cause to fight and defend, we can then lay down our arms, and even move forward towards establishing deeper trust. Even with those we once considered to be our adversaries. Even with those we once thought unreachable. The past is what it is. We cannot change it. But we can heal the wounds of the past through acceptance and forgiveness. And we can create a new and better future through the choices and decisions we make today. So may it be.
