The Sun has just entered the brilliant sign of Gemini, and now the Moon aligns with the Sun, fusing the solar consciousness with lunar magic at a time when the Moon is closest to Earth – a Super Moon (™ ) and one of a trio of Super New Moons (April, May and June).

Super Moons can exert a more powerful influence than ordinary lunations – on a personal level we may feel this as a burst of emotional energy and intensity.  Globally, Super Moons are associated with an increase in tidal intensity and seismic forces.  Richard calls the Super New Moons “stealth Super Moons” because we don’t see the huge Super Moon in all its glory.

Gemini season tends to speed up time – a firehose of information, thoughts and ideas can be somewhat overwhelming but also exciting and enlightening. Under the influence of Gemini we are more open to new experiences and recreating ourselves by trying on new personas and ways of thinking.  Here we have not only the Sun and Moon in Gemini, but also Mars, the planet of action and initiation.  There are so many choices now – so many attractive options it can be somewhat dizzying.  But an opposition from Saturn, planet of form and structure, will help to ground and contain us.

This New Moon is opposed by the Black Moon Lilith, suggesting that a deep and ancient voice from our past may emerge and demand to be heard.  In addition, a challenging square from Pluto (intensity and transformation) to Venus (relationships) could create some stress in our interpersonal connections or at the very least, intensify these contacts and facilitate their evolution.

The sparkling light of the Aquarius Super Moon, August 10 2014

The Moon is full in Aquarius on August 10th – the second Supermoon (TM Richard Nolle) of the summer.  When the Full Moon is a Supermoon it appears larger than usual in the sky and its influence is more powerful.  Full Moons represent the culmination of our emotional awareness – the peak of insight and intuition and an opening of the heart.

Aquarius is known as the Water Bearer – while Aquarius is an air sign and tends to be rather uncomfortable in the realm of feelings, it acts as the container for the emotions (the water element) to flow through the personality and find a higher expression through insight and intuition.  The element of air represents the intellect, but it is the connection with emotional intelligence (water) that brings true wisdom.  Under the influence of Aquarius we are able to harness the realm of feeling and tether it to reason, enhancing our understanding of the way the world works.

Aquarius is ruled traditionally by Saturn and its modern ruler is Uranus, and both of these planets are active in the chart of this Full Moon (Saturn in Scorpio is in a square to the Sun and Moon, and Uranus in Aries is in a trine to the Sun and sextile to the Moon).  Because of Saturn, we will likely find that an adjustment is required in order to resolve the natural tension between the Leo focus on the individual personality and the Aquarian need to subsume the individual into the collective and create lasting change. Any planetary system involving Saturn requires focus and attention in order to navigate successfully.

The Sun is conjunct Mercury, planet of the mind and intellect, and both […]

Planetary news this week! Virgo Supermoon and astrological forecast February 18-25th, 2019

By |2019-02-18T16:06:33-04:00February 18th, 2019|Planetary news this week|

horoscopesThe planets are pretty earthy right now which can help us to find our feet in the ever-changing unfolding of experiences of life.  Not everyone loves the experience of stability and security and a realm of practicality where every decision matters, but as we cycle through the realms of intellect and thought (air), motivation and desire (fire), emotions and feelings (water) it’s helpful to have that earthy period to allow everything to settle and stabilize.

Mars (drive and motivation) just moved into Taurus last week and will be traveling through that sign until March 31st.  In the security-oriented earthy sign of Taurus, Mars doesn’t like change and since Mercury will be turning retrograde in March, the upcoming weeks will not be the best times for big changes.  In Taurus Mars encourages us to explore the pleasures of  being in a body – sensuality, taste, living in nature, planting and nurturing the seeds of life.

We also have Venus (love and aesthetics) in another earth sign, Capricorn, until March 1st and for much of that time it will be interacting with Saturn, Capricorn’s ruler (a conjunction of Venus to Saturn culminates on the 18th).  Formalizing our relationships, making commitments, spending time alone, saving our money and becoming more practical with finances and saving for the future – all of these trends occur under this planetary combination.  As Venus moves closer to transformational Pluto on the 22nd we are likely to see all human interaction intensify and become more passionate and intense.

Chiron moves back into Aries on the 18th.  Chiron first entered Aries in April of 2018, then retrograded back into Pisces in September. Because of Chiron’s elliptical orbit, it spends more time in Aries than in any other sign (and the second […]

Planetary news this week: Jupiter/Neptune & the Supermoon Eclipse!

By |2019-01-14T16:10:46-04:00January 14th, 2019|Uncategorized|

Supermoon eclipse.   There is a lot of buzz and excitement around the lunar eclipse on January 20th-21st (EST) because it’s a Supermoon (tm ), meaning the Moon is at perigee, its closest orbit to Earth.  This means the Moon appears larger (because it is larger and lower in the sky, it will appear to be a red color and is therefore called a Blood Moon).  Astrologer Richard Nolle has connected Supermoon events to intensified weather and geological events such as earthquakes and severe storms.  With the Moon having a stronger effect than usual on the Earth, we can be certain that the effect on us as individuals will also be more powerful.  Eclipses are more intense in the areas in which they are visible, and this eclipse will be particularly powerful for those of us in North and South America.

This Super Full Moon is a total eclipse astronomically, because the Moon will be obscured by the Sun, and this eclipse will last for a very long time – nearly an hour, depending upon your location ( for more details about the eclipse at your particular location).  Astrologically, the eclipse is not as powerful because the lunar nodes are in a different sign from the Sun and Moon and therefore not drawing as much power as if they were in the same sign.

With the Sun in Aquarius opposing the Moon in Leo, questions of our own personal journey (Leo) relative to our transpersonal place in the world (Aquarius) will be highlighted.  Three planets in Capricorn (Saturn, Pluto and Mercury) all ground us to the Earth and ensure that we pay attention to business […]

Cancer Supermoon Eclipse! July 12, 2018

By |2018-07-12T09:20:56-04:00July 12th, 2018|Moon|

Cancer New MoonThe Cancer New Moon on the 12th is a Supermoon and a partial solar eclipse.  The term Supermoon (™ astrologer ) simply means that the Moon is at its closest point to the Earth.  When the Moon is full and a Supermoon it appears large in the sky.  When the Supermoon is a New Moon, we can’t see it at all because the light of the Sun obscures the Moon.  When the New Moon is an eclipse, the Sun is obscured as well.

The symbolism of an eclipse is connected to the Nodes of the Moon – points in the sky where the path of the Moon crosses the path of the Sun.  Because the lunar nodes are connected to fate and destiny, eclipses do often have a fated quality and a sense that something in the life is being exposed or released.

All New Moons, whether an eclipse or not, are a time of new beginnings.  The New Moon in Cancer seeks to connect us to our emotional roots – family, or the family that we create for ourselves.  We cannot master the world (Cancer’s opposite sign of Capricorn) until we connect deeply to our emotional heart and allow it to soften rather than build up a crusty shell that defends us from hurt but also prevents the flow of love.  This is one of the lessons of Cancer.

Another Cancerian lesson is that the past takes us to the future and cannot be avoided.  Our history is our present, and both can be transformed.

This is a partial eclipse visibly and pretty far from the lunar nodes so weaker astrologically –  but it is a powerful astrological event nonetheless.   The New Moon is exactly opposite Pluto, […]

The January 2018 “Super Blue Blood Moon” and the Leo/Aquarius axis

By |2018-01-28T08:17:39-04:00January 28th, 2018|Moon|

January 31 blood super moon eclipse

The Leo Full Moon on January 31st offers a trifecta of attributes which make this lunar event somewhat significant.  Most important from an astrological perspective, this is a total lunar eclipse with very tight angles to the lunar nodes, the points that represent our passage from past to future.  This tight connection between the Moon and the Sun and the nodes opens up a force field that unlocks areas of our life which we have shut down, or attempted to protect ourselves from.

Four of the five eclipses in 2018 are on the Leo/Aquarius axis, forcing us to confront areas where our need for personal development and satisfaction (Leo) are in conflict with the need to let go of some of our personal satisfaction in order to achieve justice and equality in the world around us (Aquarius).  Leo and Aquarius are opposites in the Zodiac – there is a tension between them that require integration and balance.  In this eclipse the Sun and South Node are in Aquarius, demonstrating the consciously creative impulse that is detached and manifests as pure energy.  The Leo Moon is bringing out our secret longings for recognition and pleasure, to find joy in the world and a sense of feeling special and unique, admired by those around us.  The North Node aligns with the Moon to assist us in this journey while not leaving behind the higher Aquarian aspirations towards a more transpersonal view.

The fact that this is a so-called “Blue Moon” is merely a calendar accident and has no real astrological significance.  However, this is a SuperMoon (© ), meaning the Moon is closer to the Earth than […]

A Cancerian Supermoon for the New Year

By |2017-12-31T07:33:48-04:00December 31st, 2017|Moon|

New Year Full Moon

The first Full Moon of 2018 occurs right on New Year’s Day, in the highly sensitive and emotional sign of Cancer.   Cancer is the Moon’s own sign, and it is happiest there where its sentimentality and security needs can be best expressed.  The Cancerian Full Moon asks us to open our hearts and allow ourselves to be nurtured, and to find ways where we can both give and receive in greater balance.

This Full Moon is a Supermoon (© ) as it is nearing the closest point to the Earth in its normal orbit(perigee).  There are two Full Moons in January 2018, and both are Supermoons.  The Cancer Supermoon can be more intense emotionally, especially for individuals who tend to be more sensitive to lunar events.  Supermoons are often harbingers of intense weather and seismic events.  (The January 31 Supermoon will be in Leo and will have a more fiery quality, especially since it’s an eclipse as well.  More on that later!)

Full Moons signify a polarity – a need to balance oppositional forces.  Here the worldly Capricorn Sun opposes the delicate sensitivity of the Cancerian Moon, urging us to not lose sight of the tender heart that nourishes us while we focus on the Things That Must Be Done that Capricorn requires.  The heart connections that we enjoy with family and friends – our tribe, whether self-selected or the one we are thrust into – provide that nurturing that we need in order to function in the world.

The polarity balance in this Full Moon is heavily weighted towards Capricorn, with Venus and Pluto in Capricorn flanking the Sun.  The presence of Venus helps to soften the businesslike nature of Capricorn and […]

The November 14th Supermoon in Taurus – Building a solid foundation

By |2016-11-13T08:31:44-04:00November 13th, 2016|Moon|

Taurus Supermoon November 14The concept of the Supermoon, originally coined by astrologer , has reached the mainstream as NASA calls this the biggest Supermoon since 1948.  A Full Moon or New Moon is called a Supermoon when it is at its closest to the Earth .  We don’t see the New Moon, of course, but the Full Moon appears larger and its astrological influence is stronger during a Supermoon than at other times, with higher tides and often extreme weather incidents.

Richard himself thinks that this is being overblown in the news:

The media have made a pretty big deal over this, but the truth is that the perigee (closest approach to Earth) for the November 14 occurs when the Moon is 356,511 kilometers away from our home planet. That’s only 1,348 km. closer than last month’s (October 16) SuperMoon; and only 66 km. (41 mi.) closer than the closest SuperMoon of 2011. This is really gilding the lily!

In any case, this Full Moon falls in the sign of Taurus – the sign of the Earth itself.

Taurus is the earthiest of all of the earth signs – it is a fixed sign so it encourages stability and perseverance, but is also stubborn and unyielding.  As an earth sign, Taurus is concerned with practical matters and physical comfort.  Sensual experiences of food and touch are important for Taurus, and for all of us under the Taurus Full Moon.

When the Moon is full in Taurus, the Scorpio Sun is exactly opposite the Moon.  Full Moons are the apex of the lunar cycle, and the opposition  (180 degree) aspect requires integration of polar opposites.  Where Taurus longs for peace and comfort, Scorpio demands intensity and […]
