This 2nd Libra/ Oshun Full Moon brings a dynamic moon time for many of us because it points towards the cosmic doorway leading to great abundance. The keyword is “abundance” we must be wise and alert to what type of abundance we’re creating or open to receive. Not all abundance is good, not all abundance is bad. Because an abundance of growth in any direction negative and positive is available to us. We must be careful not to run from our responsibilities.
During these 27 lunar days some people will have to address their fears. Fears regarding a need to change, the fear of trusting in their own abilities, the fear of making important decisions, the fear of loss and so on. Oshun/ Libra Moon 29° represents our internal collective drive and consciousness, and this specific type of Oshun/Libra moon’s persona longs for some form of freedom to experience. She enjoys holding her own, and she’ll create these experiences either through an act of grace or immoral force either way doesn’t concern her as long as her desire is met.
Therefore, we too have an inner drive for change and balance and if we’re not careful our subconscious and conscious minds will create those adjustments and revolutions by any means necessary.
During these 27 lunar days some of us will struggle with combating our fear about reaching our individual and collective progression or success. This Oshun/Libra 29° moon can be the doorkeeper for dangerous times, and can herald a time of psychosis, a weak moral compass and problematic disruptive feminine and masculine energies. Both Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra are 29° and both planets are residing in houses which require a lot of personal attention and healing, houses 6 and 12. So we must be prepared for sudden changes, as well as standing guard against emotional and psychological tricks. The positive side of this Oshun/Libra 29° moon time is an increased ability to solve problems.
Upcoming Lunar Experiences and Expressions
Be Alert ~ Be Aware ~ Be Focused
1.) Some people during these 27 days will find themselves in need of a good rest and a time out period. If we ignore these messages to rest during this lunar time, we may be forced to do so. Libra looks to rectify and balance all things, therefore some people will be ready to set down roots, either through marriage, a new home, moving to another location, or taking a needed vacation.
2.) Some people will have an increased sensitivity to their environment, to food and their emotions, i.e. feeling ultra-sensitive. Libra in house 6 brings us face to face with our 5 senses which at this point becomes heighted and can trigger health issues, and sharper psychic abilities. But there’ll also likely be an increased awareness of what we personally need with the desire to create a happy, desirable space for ourselves and others.
3.) Some people will likely experience major transformations which will either be liberating or caustic, fearful, and challenging. This is due to the karmic energy of Pluto’s influence on both the sun and moon which are squaring Pluto and creates a destiny changer for many of us.
Moon (Yemoja) square Pluto (Oya) -intense emotional expressions and experiences come under this transit. Manipulation, dangerous sexual passions, abuse, jealousy, and a devouring, destruction behavior can also manifest with this transit.
Sun (Sango/ Orunmila/ Olofi) square Pluto (Oya) -under this transit a person can become fearless to the point of being ruthless in their determination for authority, power, and control. Psychological issues once ignored can surface and will demand rectifying.
This moon and sun at 29° sits at the threshold of a cosmic door way which means any changes to happen in our lives is unavoidable. Something will have to be released in order for us to move forward. But when we are consciously aware of upcoming or ongoing shifts that are happening. We can choose to some degree what part we’ll play in this transformation.
Moon(Yemoja) sextile Jupiter(Obatala) brings a sociable, friendly experience and a lot of positive energy. Generosity and friendship is strong under this transit.
Venus (Oshun) sextile Pluto (Oya) draws intensive feelings of love, commitment, fulfillment and passion into one’s life. This aspect can increase the abundance of prosperity, and wealth. Whatever one wants to uncover, discover, or obtain this is the transit to put the work in to receive it.

This moon ceremony is done to increase opportunities, and courage. To open doors of positive possibilities, to increase our ability to intuit divine messages, for protection and to confront fear. All done for our highest good.
For my Ausar Auset friends, the Herukhuti element shows up in this moon ceremony.
