Report on the Full Moon Summer Solstice

full moon summer solstice

While the Summer Solstice is usually celebrated on June 21st, the astrological Solstice occurs when the Sun enters Cancer, and that occurred this year on June 20th.  This Summer Solstice coincided with the Full Moon, something we hadn’t seen apparently since 1948 (according to news reports).

The Sun is strongest in a sign when it first enters that sign, and when the Sun enters one of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) it is even stronger.  The cardinal signs initiate a new season – a new phase in human life – and the energies in the Solstice and Equinox charts are often used to forecast the weather for the season.

The Full Moon occurred at the 29th degree of Sagittarius – the so-called “anaretic” degree.  The 29th degree, sometimes called the “critical” or “anaretic” degree, is associated with the endings of cycles and new beginnings.  The word “anaretic” derives from “anareta,” which in medieval astrology signified the planet of death in the natal horoscope.  This is likely what has given the 29th degree such a bad rap in traditional astrology, although endings are actually the harbinger of new beginnings and not to be feared.

So we have the conclusion of a lunar cycle occurring at the same time as a beginning of a solar cycle – a confluence of events that signifies a closing of one door and an opening of another.  The Sagittarius Full Moon seeks expansive dreams and increased wisdom, and the Summer Solstice and Cancerian Sun brings fertility and water to nurture the soil and plants.

However, with Saturn (rules and boundaries) in Sagittarius (expansion and faith) we have to continue to set limits and be realistic (Saturn) and careful […]

The Cancerian Christmas Full Moon of 2015


Cancer Full Moon 2015 Nothing says family and friends like the astrological sign of Cancer, and the December 25th Cancer Full Moon brings an infusion of lunar energy to open the heart and encourage connections between humans.  Cancer after all is ruled by the Moon – the keeper of our secrets, the harbinger of our fears.  The Moon illuminates the darkness and sometimes reveals the shadows we would often rather not see, but also stimulates the imagination and reveals the depths of feeling that lie deep within.

The Full Moon is the peak of the lunar cycle and Cancer is the Moon’s own sign, so all of the characteristics represented by the Moon are operating here.  The ebb and flow of emotions, the desire to nurture others, our need to feel secure and safe, the legacy of our maternal line and our sense of personal history – these are all prominently featured in this Full Moon.

The Moon is also tied closely to the archetype of the nurturing mother – the sense of being safe and secure in a loving mother’s arms – so security and safety are critical experiences in the Cancerian realm.  Under the double whammy of the Cancer Full Moon we especially seek to surround ourselves with people that will provide that emotional nourishment and sense of sanctuary that we long for.

The intuition and imagination of the Full Moon is heightened now with a harmonious trine to Neptune, the planet which inspires us to transcend ordinary reality and commune directly with the divine.  Divine creativity, divine inspiration, divine peace – these majestic experiences are available to us now.  Neptune forms a sextile to the […]

Seeking comfort and healing under the Taurus Full Moon October 27th

Taurus Full Moon October 2015

When the Moon is full and brightest in the sky, it is always opposite the Sun, meaning the Moon and Sun are in opposite signs.  Signs in oppositions are polarities – there is a tension between the energies and a need to find balance.

Normally the Solar energy is more powerful than the Lunar.  The Moon moves more quickly, and its influence tends to be fleeting.  But at the fulfillment of the lunar cycle, when the waxing portion of the cycle is complete and the waning portion is about to begin, the Moon is at her most glorious and her influence is most potent.

The Taurus Full Moon on October 27th seeks comfort in the physical world – it is a sign that fully appreciates the sensory experiences that can be enjoyed through life in a body. as well as security through financial stability and a safe expectation that one day will follow another without too many surprises.  The Taurean need for peacefulness and balance is opposed by the Scorpio Sun which demands an added layer of probing and emotional intensity.  Both Taurus and Scorpio are fixed signs – they create power through perseverance.  But Taurus is ruled by Venus and Scorpio by Mars – and under the Taurus Full Moon the Venusian influence of love and harmony must work through the Martian focus on desire and motivation in order to find true balance.

In this Full Moon a triple conjunction from both Mars (energy), Venus (relating) and Jupiter (confidence and good fortune) are embedded in this chart which is generally very positive since the planetary rulers of the Full Moon (Mars and Venus) are aligned with Jupiter’s supreme beneficence and good […]

Sparkling Libra New Moon with a Uranian twist

Tarot Justice by Art Magic

The New Moon in Libra on October 12th-13th invites us to find our own peaceful center within where true equanimity will aid us in rebalancing those areas of our life which are under stress or out of whack.  Libra is the sign of balance, symbolized by the scales of justice.  Under the influence of Libra we may find ourselves swinging from one extreme to another as we attempt to achieve a neutral point that will take us back to the equilibrium that comes from being truly in balance with our own emotions and drives.

Like all New Moons, this Libra lunation marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle.  Intentions that are set now will make their mark throughout the next 28 days or so.  With the energy of the Sun and Moon working together, the yang solar influence fuses with the yin lunar receptivity and acts as a powerful symbol of the yearning for balance which is so important under Libra.

Uranus, planet of radical change and electrical impulses, is poised in a tense opposition to the New Moon which will counterbalance that Libran inner harmony.  While we find that center of peace within us, we will be challenged by Uranus to step out of our comfort zone and dare to open our minds to a new reality or a new way of thinking about our present one.

Under the Libra influence, everything around us becomes a mirror reflection of our inner world, and every action demands an equal reaction.  It’s important to understand the interconnectedness between what we experience within, and what we draw into our lives from the outside.  This New Moon can aid in this understanding and facilitate our ability to alchemize every […]

The final Blood Moon occurs this week – end of the world?

peanuts(hint:  probably not!!)

As I wrote last week, the upcoming Full Moon this weekend is not only a (occurring when the Moon is at its closest point to Earth and therefore wields a more powerful influence) but also a Blood Moon eclipse (so called because of the red color that infuses the Moon during the eclipse.  It is also the final event of a Lunar Tetrad – a group of four total eclipses that occur within a six month period (read this earlier article for all the details).

(Geeky astro detail:  a lunar event is said to be an eclipse when the soli/lunar relationship (Sun and Moon) aligns with the lunar nodes.  When the alignment to the nodes is very tight the eclipse becomes a total eclipse and is more powerful astrologically.  The lunar nodes represent the flow of life from past to future, and eclipses therefore carry with them the ability to create profound change in our fate and our destiny.

points out that in the 21st century we have had a fair number of total eclipses, but this has not always been the case.

“During the 21st century, there are 8 sets of tetrads, so I would describe tetrads as a frequent occurrence in the current pattern of lunar eclipses,” says Espenak. “But this has not always been the case. During the three hundred year interval from 1600 to 1900, for instance, there were no tetrads at all.”

The evangelical rumor mill has jumped on the bandwagon, claiming that at the end of this current Tetrad the world will end, or Christ will return, depending on who you read.  Some writers have linked their conspiracy theories to the fact that these […]
