New Year, New Moon!

Photo by Steve Matteo

The beginning of 2014 brings us a powerful New Moon in Capricorn, with a Grand Cross in the cardinal (action) signs.  Cardinal signs are initiators – they inspire leadership and movement and are just the thing to motivate the kind of goals and dreams that the New Year tends to foster.

This New Moon is a Supermoon (this term is in common usage today but was actually coined by astrologer ) because it is at its closest point to Earth.  It’s typically the Full Moons that bring about the greatest emotional exposure, but a Super New Moon can open up doors to new changes that are otherwise closed to us.

Capricorn is the sign of achievement and structure – stability, success and the trappings of success. Capricorn is the climber, and driven to produce something that will last.  This New Moon gives us an opportunity to manifest our dreams into the material world.  The Sun, Moon and Mercury are all tightly conjunct, and the presence of Mercury helps to translate our longings into ideas.  The addition of Pluto in the tight formation intensifies the power of Will and if we can focus that Will, magic can happen.

Mars in Libra squares the Capricorn planets, and some frustration or irritation could result.  Jupiter in Cancer is also involved, enlarging and expanding our desires and our need to break away from any shackles we have found ourselves in.  Uranus in Aries completes the Grand Cross, shattering paradigms and providing a window to break free if  we will only open it.  The Uranus/Pluto square is a powerful driver here, but now we have a team of other planets helping to facilitate […]

Gemini Full Moon December 17: Ascending to Higher Mind

Art by Laura Barbosa

The Moon will be full in Gemini on the 17th, expanding our minds and filling us with curiosity and a yearning to understand life’s secrets.

Every Full Moon contains a polarity within it, and while polarities are opposites they always have something in common that links them together.  Gemini and Sagittarius are the most similar of the six astrological polarities – both are concerned with knowledge although they each have a different approach.  Gemini is hungry to learn as much as possible about many different things – there tends to be a lack of discrimination and a deep curiosity about a broad spectrum of topics.  Sagittarius is more focused and seeks a more specialized understanding and tends to be less verbal than Gemini.

In this Full Moon, the Moon’s ruler (Mercury) is in the sign of the Sun (Sagittarius) which evokes an echo the lunar polarity and strengthens the focus of the mental realm (ruled by Mercury).  In addition, Uranus changes direction on the 17th, turning direct after about six months in retrograde motion.  Uranus is sometimes called the “higher octave” of Mercury – where Mercury rules the mind and mental function Uranus rules intuition and flashes of insight as well as communication across dimensions.

There is a social aspect to both Gemini and Sagittarius that cannot be ignored – Gemini loves to communicate and share on a verbal level, and Sagittarius is on a quest for experiences that provide expansion and knowledge.  Travel, both short trips (Gemini) and long (Sagittarius) are highlighted under this aspect.

The trine between Jupiter (opportunity) and Saturn (hard work) is still in effect, helping to provide a stable foundation from which we can expand our world. […]

Sagittarius New Moon, December 2 2013

In times like these, when the foundation of our lives are breaking apart in order to free us to establish new patterns and structures to assist us to grow and evolve, we need to be able to expand our minds so that we can evolve the systems of belief that give our lives meaning.  This is the role of the Sagittarius New Moon today.

The New Moon is the beginning of a new lunar cycle.  Under the New Moon our conscious mind, represented by the Sun, fuses with the lunar instinct of the Moon and generate the energy to begin something new.

Sagittarius represents the kind of faith that brings confidence and abundance, with a general sense of good will and adventure. Like all New Moons, the Sun and Moon align in concert and beam to us the unadulterated Sagittarian light of positive energy and a desire for expansion. Under the Sagittarian New Moon we resist confinement and responsibility – we yearn to be free. This New Moon forms a challenging square to Chiron (deep wounds) that can bring up sensitive areas to be healed before the Sagittarian expansion and freedom can truly take root.

Jupiter, the ruling planet of the New Moon, is opposed by Venus at this time which suggests that we may feel somewhat confined by our relationships (Venus) for a few days. Finding spaces in our interconnectedness where we can be free while remaining centered in the heart will be a key piece to navigating this New Moon successfully. New Moons are times of new beginnings, and under this New Moon influence we find ourselves learning how to be free while remaining anchored to the people in our lives that are important to us.

A harmonious sextile […]

Scorpio New Moon Eclipse, November 3 2013

from deviantART

This  New Moon in Scorpio is also a Solar Eclipse. This is a particularly powerful Scorpionic event because we have four planets (Mercury, Sun, Moon and Saturn) tightly aligned within six degrees of the sign of passion and intensity. This is a Scorpionic time in any case – we are approaching the midpoint of the Scorpio solar cycle which is associated with the ancient Celtic cross-quarter festival of Samhain, and under Scorpio’s influence we are called to fearlessly dive deep into the unconscious to uncover both the treasures and horrors that lie hidden in the underworld of the senses. With an eclipse in Scorpio at the New Moon, there may be an unmasking of a secret that is holding us back – keeping us from awakening to the new reality that is calling us. The North Node is tightly sandwiched between the Sun and Mercury, giving this a more powerful eclipse effect than some others we have had recently and strengthening the force for awakening that is at work under Uranus and Pluto. The New Moon conjoins Saturn which suggests a time for solitary process and experience and perhaps the need to ground the shamanic experience of the eclipse into something practical that will build something for the future. A trine from Mars to Pluto in earth signs is supportive of that need to ground the experience and helps to stabilize and encourage us in our journey; however, Mars is just moving away from an opposition to Chiron which may enhance our emotional sensitivity. Emotions, passions, feelings, secrets – all of these have the potential to be unmasked today as the eclipse shields the Sun’s light and empowers the lunar flow of feelings […]

Aries Full Moon Eclipse: October 2013

eclipseThe Moon is full in Aries tonight at 7:37 pm Eastern, meaning the Moon will be opposite the Libra Sun.  The opposition of the Moon to the Sun indicates a tension between emotion (Moon) and reason (Sun), between conscious thought (Sun and instinctive drives (Moon). The word “tension” is defined as “the state of being stretched tight.”  In the Full Moon (or any other planetary opposition as well) we are being stretched to our outer limits to use all of our resources and gifts as nature intended.  Full Moons can be times of extremes, offering us the opportunity to stretch beyond our normal comfort level. When the Moon is in Aries we long (Moon) to be able to be no less than our complete and absolute selves (Aries) – we long to have our own way, to initiate actions that will effectuate our desires, to fly solo in the direction of our dreams.  This self-oriented positioning is diametrically opposed to the Libra Sun which attempts to create harmony by bringing together opposites and conflicting forces, giving up and compromising in order to bring that sense of harmony into being. The Libra Full Moon is always an interesting event because the Full Moon itself requires that we balance and integrate two opposing forces, and the Libra influence here assists in that integration.  Somehow we must find a way to ensure that we have unfettered access to our own dreams and desires (Aries) while remaining in relationship and finding compromise (Libra).  Rather like the US government over the past week! Although this is an astronomical eclipse, it is a weak one by astrological standards.  Astronomers classify a lunar event as an eclipse when the nodes of the Moon are […]
