Scorpio Full Moon: May 5, 2012

Full Moon ScorpioIn the Full Moon is in Scorpio nothing is superficial – this Full Moon is all about delving deep into the Mysteries where the Truth lies unexposed in its raw and most real form.  The astrological Moon represents our emotions and feelings – it shows where we retreat to when we are under stress and our instinctive reactions that are unencumbered by any sense of what others expect.

Scorpio is a water sign and therefore involved with the emotional realm.  But Scorpio’s traditional ruler is Mars – a fire planet.  The emotion of Scorpio is nothing like the “go with the flow” emotional adaptability of Pisces, or the deeply sensitive and easily wounded nature of Cancer.  Scorpio is passionate and intense and can be aggressive in its need to defend and protect.  Scorpio’s modern ruler is Pluto, the planet of transformation and the ultimate Truth of Life and Death, which drives that need for intensity into a powerhouse of release and reconstruction.

In the Scorpio Full Moon the lunar instinct turns towards the fire of emotion in order to find our inner passions and face our emotions with courage and awareness. However, the Sun is opposite the Moon in Taurus, seeking peace and serenity in the midst of that Scorpionic emotional fire.  The Full Moon, like any opposition, requires balance.  The Scorpio Moon is in its ascendancy and is the stronger of the two during this lunar event, but the Taurus Sun is whispering to us, encouraging us to stay rooted into the Earth while we allow the fire of our passions and enthusiasm to engulf us in the flames of transcendence.

Scorpio as a rule demands our complete attention, and that will be emphasized as an […]

April 2012 Taurus New Moon


Photo stolen from my friend . 

by The Sun enters Taurus on the 19th and seeks comfort and pleasure in the simple and the safe, especially at the Taurus New Moon when the solar conscious principle aligns with the lunar instincts in the sign of Earthly experience and stability.

The New Moon is the initiation of the new lunar cycle, and after a month of working through imbalances in our personal lives and unearthing Plutonian treasures and being exhausted by Martian passion, this Taurus New Moon will provide a resting place within which to find harmony and serenity.

The New Moon is in a harmonious trine to Mars which helps to activate our inner desires and inspire us to take the kind of action that will facilitate our growth. Venus, the lunar ruler, makes no major aspects and is thus enabled to operate free from constriction and restraint. This is a beautiful time of retreat and enjoyment of the simpler things that bring simple pleasure into the human life.

Mercury is within a day of its final conjunction to Uranus, so the mind is stimulated and ready to embrace new ideas and ways of thinking although with the strong Earth influence in the New Moon chart any action will be slow to unfold. Uranus is getting ever closer to the exact square to Pluto, though, so there is a hint and an echo of the revolutionary excitement that is just around the corner.

Mercury is the translator here between Uranus and Pluto, since Mercury conjoins Uranus on the 22nd and then squares Pluto on the 25th. We can make the argument that the Uranus/Pluto conjunction will really begin with this event as Mercury brings the two dramatic forces of […]

Libra Full Moon

Full Moon in LibraThe Libra Full Moon on April 6th balances the individuality and self-motivation of the Aries Sun with the Libran urge for peace and balance. At the Full Moon the conscious solar influence (Aries) is opposite the instinctive lunar and more personal needs (Libra), and like any opposition a balance between the two is required.

The lunar ruler here is Venus, and with Venus in chatty Gemini you can be sure that a conversation will be required. Venus is still in range of the square to Neptune, so things may not be exactly as they seem, and Venus is approaching a square to irritating Mars which suggests that personal conflicts could occur. Mars is the solar ruler in this Full Moon since Mars rules the sign of Aries, and when the lunar ruler is in a hard aspect to the solar ruler in the chart of a Full Moon we know that this is going to be very significant.

The urge of Venus and Libra to find balance and harmony in interpersonal relationships sometimes comes at the cost of our individual needs as represented by Mars and Aries. The urge of Mars and Aries to assert ourselves independently of others often comes at the cost of personal relationships as represented by Venus and Libra. Balancing our own needs (Mars/Aries) with the needs of others (Venus/Libra) is the key to any healthy relationship and this is the theme of this Full Moon.

There is the potential for self-delusion here, not only with the Venus/Neptune square but also with Mercury in Pisces which prefers to take the high road and avoid any kind of confrontation, even when necessary. And Mars is moving into an opposition to Neptune where its aggression […]

Sunday inspiration for the Leo Moon

The Moon enters Leo this Sunday morning April 1st.  Leo is the sign that teaches us to find joy amidst the pathos of everyday life, and celebrate life and our own unique individuality at every moment.


To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

Virgo Full Moon, March 8 2012

Virgo Full MoonThis Full Moon is an interesting dance balancing our attachment to the mundane world through the Moon in Virgo with the transcendent and otherworldly longings of the Piscean Sun.  During the Full Moon the lunar instincts dominate the solar conscious mind, and Virgoan areas of security and a need for order are highlighted. Mercury is the traditional ruler of Virgo and is very active in this chart.  It is still within range of a conjunction to Uranus which inspires new ideas and demands a change from the past.  Mercury is also moving towards a square to Pluto which intensifies our thoughts and communication and can bring a touch of obsession.  Mercury is the messenger god, and for the next few weeks as Mercury slows to a standstill and turns retrograde back across Uranus we will continue to be struck by flashes of insight and be alert to new ways of creating change in our life. This is the backdrop against which we can use this Full Moon to balance the mundane (Virgo) with the divine (Pisces), not an easy dance but a worthwhile one. Divine creativity is assisted by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, having just made a harmonious sextile to Neptune and facilitated the expression of divine love and beauty, and now moving into a sextile to Chiron to explore ways that healing can occur in beautiful ways to free our hearts.  These influences in the Full Moon can help us to open to new energy (Mercury Uranus) in a variety of ways: by surrounding ourselves with beauty (Venus), through spiritual activity and learning (Neptune), through inspiration and intuition (Mercury/Uranus). Mercury is stationary as it prepares to turn retrograde […]
