Mars and the Scorpio Full Moon

Scorpio Full MoonNow that the Grand Cross is beginning to unwind there is a bit more movement and a sense of increased possibilities rather than that feeling of being stuck in crisis that so many of us have had over the past few months.

Mars is at a virtual standstill, so if it (at 9-10 degrees Libra) is hitting a sensitive point in your chart or the charts of those around you, there could still be some eruptions as frustrations build to a peak and find release.

Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio, and we have a Scorpio Full Moon coming up on May 14th so the influence of Mars is increased exponentially.  Mars of course was the god of war, and nobody really likes war except for the most aggressive of warriors.  And it’s true that Mars inspires aggression and anger, but it also creates enthusiasm and motivates and inspires us.

Because Mars is still blocked by the other planets of the Grand Cross its expression is not as complete as it might otherwise be which means some conscious effort is required to unlock it so that we can utilize it well rather than become frustrated by it.  Essentially that means moving our bodies and releasing any stuck energy through physical activity wherever possible.  If we feel fatigued that often means that Mars is not being able to fire its energy through the physical body, and moving our body through walking, dance, yoga, or any other way that we enjoy will help to release the blocks so that that energy can move freely and inspire and motivate.

Under the Scorpio Full Moon the passion of Mars will become even more pronounced, but that passion may be more internalized as […]

The Blood Moon Tetrad – prophecy and science

blood moon

Tuesday’s Full Moon eclipse is part of a relatively rare event known as a “Tetrad,” a series of four total lunar eclipses in a row.  While eclipses are not uncommon (we typically see two pairs of eclipses each year although there is often deviation from that pattern), total eclipses are less common and a series of four total lunar eclipses in a row is even more rare. (For more about the eclipse see this earlier article.)

In the total eclipse the Moon often seems to glow with an eerie red color, inspiring the name “Blood Moon.”  An ancient Biblical prophecy in the Book of Joel says that “The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes.”  Some Biblical prophecists (is that a word?) have looked at lunar tetrads and their relationship to Jewish holidays as being significant event for the Jewish people, and because this first “blood moon” falls on Passover, these writers propose that the tetrads of 2014-2015 will have great significance for Israel and consequently, lead to the return of Christ.

However, Passover always falls on a Full Moon, and a total eclipse can only happen on a Full Moon so the correlation is not that unlikely.

This article makes some interesting connections, and then disputes them:

Even rarer is a phenomenon that Mark Biltz discovered. Of the 87 tetrads that have occurred since the time of Christ, only 8 have fallen on Jewish feast days. Those eight occurred in the following years: 162-163, 795-796, 842-843, 860-861, 1428-1429, 1493-1494, 1949-1950 and 1967-1968.9

For an example of what is meant by a tetrad falling on Jewish feast […]

Aries New Moon astrology and the April Grand Cross

Aries new moon grand cross

Today’s New Moon is in the cardinal sign of Aries – the first sign of the Spring season.  There is a sense of new beginnings – of pregnant anticipation.  Something  is about to burst forth, to blossom and the old is made new again.

The New Moon occurs today at 2:45 pm Eastern and falls at 9 degrees Aries.  Both the Sun and Moon link up with Uranus, the planet of revolution, encouraging us to shed the shackles of the past and the restrictions of our established patterns and routines so that we can be transformed by this new energy.

These three planets and lights in Aries form a square to Pluto, planet of destruction and regeneration. This pressure for change is not an invitation – it is a requirement.  Pluto will ensure that anything standing in our way will be decimated so that the force for change can work its magic with or without our cooperation.

Jupiter is involved here too – the “great benefic” with its super-confidence and gift of good fortune and opportunity, but here there is a challenge to surrender our ideologies and our need to be right.  The old gods are destroyed when Jupiter and Pluto go to war, and there are new gods to be discovered.

This is a hint to prepare us for the next few weeks which will bring us more of this intense conflicting energy that paves the way for a transformational future.  The energy will continue to intensify as Mars plays more of an active role, but for now the New Moon energy can inspire us with excitement and encourage us to follow the Aries archetype of adventure as we […]

Heart-opening Leo Full Moon for Valentine’s Day

Leo Full Moon

Tonight’s Full Moon offers a dramatic expression of the open heart, and not just because it’s Valentine’s Day.  This Full Moon is in Leo, the sign that is ruled by the Sun.  In medical astrology the Sun rules the physical heart, but there is also a generosity of spirit to Leo – a warmhearted openness to life and all of its complexities.  This generosity of Leo opens up the heart at this Full Moon and encourages a dramatic display of personal expression that is fueled by fire and the passion driven by a love of life itself.

All Full Moons contain a polarity between two opposing signs since the Sun in one sign is opposite the Moon in another. The solar conscious principle of the transpersonal sign Aquarius here opposes the lunar instincts of Leo – the inner child who longs to be recognized, admired and appreciated.

Saturn is the traditional ruler of Aquarius, and it represents contraction, hard work and isolation.  In this lunation (lunar event) it forms a challenging square aspect to both the Sun and the Moon – a double whammy of taciturn Saturn coldness.  This could bring sadness to those that are alone on Valentine’s Day – a day when it is easy to think that the entire world is in love and happier than we ourselves are.  Saturn brings a sensibility to the hype and fantasy surrounding this holiday which can bring feelings of deprivation no matter what our situation.   Saturn insists that we become anchored within ourselves to find balance between our needs for personal expression (Leo) and the distancing from the personal into the community of mankind (Aquarius) – between giving and receiving, between connection and solitude .

This Valentine’s Day […]

Burst into awakenings: Aquarius New Moon January 30, 2014

The way to the New Moon on January 30 is paved by a harmonious sextile aspect from the Sun to Uranus today (January 29th).  The Sun bestows life-giving energy and positive life force, and when it harmonizes with Uranus, the planet of awakening and change, there is a blossoming of potential that stirs the soul and inspires a departure from the ordinary.  Anything is possible now, but under the opposition from Jupiter to Pluto we must  be very mindful of our thoughts and longings, because you just might get what  you wish for.

Both of these influences are embedded in the chart for the Aquarius New Moon – a “double whammy” Aquarius influence because the Sun and Moon are both in a harmonious sextile to Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius.  This is a time to shatter old paradigms and venture into the unfamiliar.  Break out of your routine and create something new in your life.

This New Moon is a “Supermoon,” a lunation that occurs when the moon is at perigee (closest to earth).  The term “Supermoon” is in common usage now, even by astronomers, but it was first coined by astrologer to whom I like to always give credit.  When the Supermoon is a full moon, it appears larger than life in the sky – a powerful presence that connects us intimately and powerfully with the lunar instinctive side of our nature.  When the Supermoon is a New Moon it is not visible in the sky and therefore its influence is different than when the Moon is full. This is the second New Moon Supermoon in the month of January.

As the beginning of the new lunar cycle, […]
