Gut Symmetries

It’s the morning of the full moon eclipse in Libra as I sit and write in the La Barba coffee shop, cappuccino in hand, in the City of Salt. I have let out a sigh of relief today! Do you feel it too?  We’ve made it through some pretty turbulent waters with the last Pluto/Uranus square in mid-March, and the solar eclipse on March 20! Today, even though we are in another eclipse, it is a celestial event that seeks to harmonize and integrate the raw emotions of the last few weeks.
 
“For the first time in months I felt my body slacken.” –Jeanette Winterson
 
Yep, I’ve been readin’ Jeannette Winterson. This Virgo-author with a Gemini moon wrote a novel called Gut Symmetries. I borrowed her title and a few quotes from the book to help explain the energy of the next few weeks coming off the lunar eclipse.
 
The Moon—Gut
Libra—Symmetries
 
The Moon, full, receptive, and nurturing, is the ruler of emotions and of the zodiacal sign Cancer, which traditionally rules the stomach. The moon speaks to our core emotional landscape, especially that piece of real estate down inside the belly, the gut. This is a landscape that is capable of going from a tranquil beach getaway to a rain-soaked-hurricane in a matter of minutes. The moon is our place of intuition, place of tribe, trust, and treating ourselves well. 
 
Libra, the scales, is seduced by symmetry, line and design. Libra wants to include and harmonize. Relationship oriented, Libra is invested in true beauty, true art, and true love and will build its value system accordingly. Venus ruled, Libra will seek to keep the waters peaceful and would rather fall in love than fight.
 
Do you fall in love often?
 
“Yes often. With a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all.”   
 
This full moon is about bringing symmetry into the gut. It might feel like something is finally shaking loose way down inside. We may feel inspired to suspend judgment and find acceptance of all our emotions. We may even be able to take our emotions less personally and see them as floating clouds that drift in and out all day. It might be time to strengthen the core and finally take that yoga class we’ve been meaning to take. It might be time to let ourselves cry it out. It might be time (as I said in the last newsletter) to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.  
 
What sign is your moon? You should all have a copy of your charts. Find the symbol that looks like a moon. See if you can figure out which sign it is in. What kind of information does it reveal about your emotional landscape? My moon sign is in Gemini (just like Winterson’s). It is important to me that my emotions (the Moon) are spoken (Gemini). Please let me know if you’d like to book a session dedicated to your moon sign and what it might tell you about your emotional landscape.
