Remembering September 11th, and a look at the Pisces Full Moon, September 12, 2011

Remembering September 11th

"United We Rise" by Elaine Felos Ostranderart by . You will have a hard time ignoring the fact that today is the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks if you live in the United States.  There’s not a media outlet (including this one) that is letting today go by without a mention.

I think we can all agree that no matter how we spin the attack and the events that followed in our mind, this event is the single thing that has changed the course of world history in our lifetime.  As I wrote in my earlier article on September 11th:

On the day of the attacks, transiting Pluto was within seventeen minutes of an exact conjunction to the US ascendant in the Sibley chart)  at 12 degrees Sagittarius. Astrologers had worried for months about the opposition of Saturn to Pluto that was in effect at that time, and Pluto, which had been traveling retrograde, turned direct on August 25th within 11 minutes of the US ascendant. When planets change direction in a close aspect to one of our planets, the effect is extremely intense. [This sole fact is enough to have convinced many astrologers, including this one, of the veracity of the Sibley chart.]

Saturn and Pluto are both Lords of Death with Saturn having played that role in the early days of astrology before Pluto was discovered. Modern astrologers don’t find Saturn as evil as the more traditional astrologers do, but the stress between the restriction of Saturn and the transformative power of Pluto can be difficult at best. With these two facing off and Pluto sitting right on the ascendant, the face of American […]

New Moon in Virgo, August 28 2011

Virgo new moon August 2011New Moons are the beginning of a new lunar cycle and a time to wash away the past and begin anew. What we call the astrological New Moon, the exact moment in which the Sun and Moon are aligned in a new zodiacal sign, is actually the dark of the Moon.  Not a sliver of the Moon is visible at this time: it is absolute potentiality.  The previous cycle is complete, and something new is beginning.

In Virgo the New Moon brings greater attention to health, diet, personal hygiene, and other details that are necessary in order to live in a body.  There is a purity about Virgo that is unique to this sign – the ability to discriminate between that which is helpful and that which is not.  It is this discrimination that gives Virgo the reputation for being a perfectionist and which creates a sensitivity to the environment that can be somewhat anxiety-producing.

The Sun and Moon in the New Moon chart are linked to Venus, a beneficial aspect that softens the potentially anxious quality of Virgo and enhances our ability to connect with others.  The Sun, Moon and Venus are all in a harmonious trine to Pluto, describing a powerful transformation that is possible at this time.  In harmonious aspects Pluto becomes an ally in deepening our experience and intensifying our awareness, giving us a big boost at this time of new beginning.

This New Moon also includes a tight trine from Venus to Jupiter: the lesser benefic (Venus) in harmony with the greater benefic (Jupiter).  This is an expansive time in which great gifts are available to us, especially with Jupiter in a stationary position as it prepares to turn retrograde on the […]

Full Moon in Aquarius, August 13 2011

Art from Wildsunflower Studio

The Full Moon this month will take place August 13th at 2:58 pm EDT/6:58 pm GMT.

The Full Moon is the culmination of the lunar cycle and the beginning of the waning phase of letting go. In Aquarius, the Full Moon seeks to achieve a pinnacle of social justice and fairness – an observation of the world in which ego, the realm of Leo, is no longer a part of the equation. However, since the Full Moon is an opposition between the Sun and the Moon, and any opposition requires balance and integration, it becomes more important to balance the Leo quality of a healthy sense of Self with the Aquarian quality of transpersonalization.

The love and beauty of Venus is tightly aligned in this Full Moon since she nearly exactly conjoins the Sun and showers her blessings on the event. However, that pesky alignment between Mars and the Uranus/Pluto square suggest that challenges lurk beneath the surface and must be attended to, rather like a party that takes place at the mouth of a dragon’s cave. The conjunction between the Sun to Venus tightens over the next few days and the two remain within a few degrees of each other through the last week of August. The Sun represents the development of the individual Self, and just as the light of the Sun can overpower the radiance of Venus in the sky, the focus on Self in a Sun/Venus conjunction can obscure the yearning of Venus for harmony and connection with others. The fact that Venus is in Leo (the sign associated with the Sun) at this time enhances the focus on Self and encourages the heart to open in new and more […]

New Moon in Leo, July 30 2011

from the Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert

The New Moon marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle – the time when the Sun and the Moon are aligned at the exact degree.  It would be more accurately called the “Dark Moon,” since this alignment occurs before the Moon shows the first glimpse of herself in the early crescent phase, but in any case the New Moon marks the letting go of one area of life and the beginning of a new cycle.

As we move into the realm of Leo, we become more naturally oriented towards an awareness of our true Self and how we want it to be expressed in the outer world.  Leo is the sign of nobility, and it represents the Noble Self as well as the Divine Child.  Under the influence of Leo, we seek to become the best specimen of humanity that we can possibly be.

This Leo Moon is conjoined by Venus, which makes it the perfect time to begin new alliances in which we honor the Divine Child both in ourselves and in our friends, lovers, or business colleagues.  The kingly planet Jupiter forms a strong aspect, a square, to the lunation (lunar event), offering an expansive means to stretch beyond any limitations that keep us from exploring our pure potential.  Because this Jupiter/Moon aspect is a square, there is some danger here that we might take this natural abundance of positive ego to an extreme and cross that delicate line between a healthy ego and self-centered egotism.

Mercury in the New Moon chart is in humble Virgo which will likely apply the brakes if the ego becomes too expansive.  In Virgo the mind becomes focused on the […]

Capricorn Full Moon! July 14-15, 2011

Full Moon Capricorn July 15 2011 Image by Donovan Zimmerman

The Capricorn Full Moon the 15th occurs with the Moon in Capricorn opposite the Cancerian Sun. Signs in opposition are like the Yin/Yang symbol – each sign contains what the other lacks, and the Full Moon requires that we integrate those opposing forces. The Cancerian Sun is concerned with family and feeling – a connection to our tribe and our ancestors. There is an emotional focus that personalizes everything we see. The Capricorn Moon is all about responsibilities and prefers to put emotions aside until our responsibilities and tasks are behind us.

The Cancer/Capricorn polarity also describes the relationship between the parent and the child – the outer world  and the inner one.  We begin as a child, and then become a parent, and then sometimes a parent to our own parents.  All polarities contain a balance and requires an integration of the two ends of the axis. In order to achieve in the outer world we must have a balanced inner life.  We cannot truly find that inner place of home until we resolve our place in the world.

The Venus/Saturn square will still be in effect at the time of the Full Moon which suggests that this focus on Capricornian accomplishment could stand in the way of harmony in our relationships (since Saturn rules Capricorn it provides support in this case for the need to build structure and put aside our personal feelings for the tasks at hand. Capricorn’s purpose is to master the material world. and personal feelings (both our own and those of our loved ones) are not always considered as part of the master plan.

The square of Uranus and Pluto, which is within a degree […]
