New Moon in Scorpio, November 6 2010

Scorpio is the sign of passion and intensity, and the Truth that exists where life and death meet.  This New Moon offers us an opportunity to face the darkness and discover our own Truth – to strip ourselves of any falseness and pledge to live in that Truth.  New Moons begin a new cycle, and in Scorpio the challenge is to confront our emotional fears without becoming enmeshed in the story.

The New Moon is often shown as a sliver of a crescent, but it is actually the darkest point of the lunar cycle.  The New Moon occurs when the Moon conjoins the Sun and the solar light completely obscures the lunar, leaving us in darkness.  But it is in that darkness that the first rays of light can be seen.

Chiron is stationary now and turns direct on November 5th.  Its influence is intense as it beams a steady ray of wisdom that opens up the soul and encourages hidden wounds to emerge where they can be treated and transmuted.  This healing wisdom is very powerful in Saturday’s Scorpio New Moon.

Mercury, the planet of the mind, is also very active during this New Moon; it conflicts by square with Chiron and Neptune and harmonizes by trine to Uranus.  Mercury’s active presence in the New Moon chart suggests the need to remain objective without disassociating.  Mercury is in Scorpio now, and our thoughts and the processing of information is filtered through the lens of passion and intensity.  However, that trine to Uranus will help us to achieve a degree of objectivity in the midst of all of that emotional intensity.

There is a great deal of power in this New Moon […]

Bank of Scotland: Market timing with the Moon

Thanks to astrologers Deb Houlding and Martin Davis for posting a link to this article on Facebook.

The Bank of Scotland has studied the performance of six different international stock indices over a period of several decades to determine a correlation between stock trading and the Moon.  The interesting thing about this article is that it seems to have no connection to any astrological group or individual.  Their premise is this:  “New moon traditionally symbolises the period of low energy, or energy accumulation period, whereas the time of full moon is the period of high energy or spending period.”

The first observation is that the daily change in an index is significantly higher on the new moon days than on average….However, there was no observation of a particular direction of the markets movement on the new or full moon.
It appears that the performance of moon-investing over ordinary investing is higher in rising markets, but it also “falls sharply in falling markets.”
The conclusion?
The proposed trading strategy can be summarised as follows: buy an index on the new moon (if this is a non-trading day, buy on the next trading day), hold till the full moon (usually 14-15 days), sell the index on the full moon (similarly, if non-trading day, sell on the next trading day), repeat the investment of the overall amount on the next moon cycle (usually in 14-16 days), enjoy your profits!
Remember, this is not to be considered any kind of trading advice – merely an interesting correlation to keep in mind.

Full Moon in Aries: October 22, 2010

Art by Steven Miller

The Full Moon on Friday, October 22nd, is at the very last degree of Aries.  Aries is the sign of initiation and courage; the sign that inspires us to forge ahead despite our fears and anxieties and make things happen.  The 29th degree is a symbol of completion, and the Full Moon is the symbol of fulfillment and readiness for gestation.  There is a sense here of a readiness for personal growth and evolution that can come to fruition if our conscious intention reflects the purity of the Will.

In this Full Moon we have the Sun at 29 degrees Libra opposite the Moon at 29 degree Aries.  The balance between Me and Others is the focal point of the Libra/Aries polarity, and with Venus, Libra’s ruling planet, currently unaspected and in her invisible phase of her retrograde journey, our connections with others can be obscured and confusing.  This gives the Aries Full Moon an opportunity to spring into action in a way that is more self-oriented than the Aries/Libra polarity would normally permit.

For a few days around the Full Moon we can feel more completely exactly who we are; less concerned with what others think and what others need from us.  This could create difficulties in our interpersonal relationships, especially with Mars in a challenging square to both Chiron and Neptune.

The Sun and the Moon are harmoniously aspected by Chiron (the soul healer) and Neptune (the spirit dancer), which suggests that as we orient ourselves deeply with the Truth within healing can occur gently and gradually as long as we let go and let the beauty of the lunar energy unfold.

However, a square of Mars to Neptune […]

New Moon in Libra, October 7 2010

New Moon in Libra A New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon align in the sky, beginning the next phase of the lunar cycle. There’s a clearing of the slate, and an opportunity to begin anew.  The Libra New Moon on October 7 th includes not only a conjunction of the Sun and Moon but also a conjunction of Mercury to Saturn, all in Libra.Libra is ruled by Venus, and Venus is quite powerful right now since it’s virtually stationary as it prepares to change direction to turn retrograde.  With four planets in Libra, and Venus stationary, we are seeing the more powerful aspect of the Goddess of Love.  I have always found it interesting that the truly ancient cultures (Babylonia, Sumeria, ancient India) have much more powerful representations of the goddess of love and sexuality than the Venus of Roman patriarchal culture.  Ishtar, Astarte, Ashtoreth, Innana – these were powerful ladies that instilled awe and even fear into the populace.  Venus has become a bit of a cartoon character in some circles – the Playboy Bunny of the zodiac.  But the instinct for love and attachment is one of the most primal archetypes in human experience, and it is this archetype that is at play in tomorrow’s New Moon.Here we also have the approaching conjunction of Mercury to Saturn, stabilizing (Saturn) our thoughts and ideas (Mercury) and teaching (Saturn) ways to achieve greater cooperation (Libra) as we learn to bridge the gaps that keep us from truly understanding (Mercury) each other.

Venus presides over our values and attachments, and we may find ourselves questioning the things to which we have become attached over time during this retrograde period.The New Moon chart also includes […]

Full Moon in Aries, September 23 2010

Aries Full Moon September 2010The Full Moon occurs on September 23rd at 5:17 am Eastern time in the sign of Aries, balancing the Sun which has just entered Libra.  Full Moons occur when the Moon is in opposition to the Sun, and oppositions require that we learn to balance opposite forces.The Aries/Libra polarity is itself concerned with finding balance and harmony (Libra) while staying firmly rooted in our own individuality (Aries).  Me and you, this and that, here and there – all are differences that need to be brought into balance under the Aries Full Moon, but the Aries emphasis is on the need to maintain our sense of individual purpose.

This is the Harvest Moon that occurs very close to the Equinox (in this case, just one day later).  The chart for the Full Moon brings together the separating cardinal planets for one more dramatic moment, although this will not in any way approach the intensity of the summer. Still, with the Moon at zero degrees Aries where it is at the very beginning of the zodiac, there is an initiation here that must be attended to. Both the Sun and the Moon are in a close square to Pluto, and Pluto demands that we surrender and shed the old skins we are hauling around with us that no longer fit the persons we have become. The Aries Moon, especially at zero degrees, is very ready to begin something completely new and let go of any hesitation or fears that may have taken over our lives.
The Full Moon chart has an unaspected Mercury in its own sign of Virgo, reminding us that we are adaptable creatures with the ability to use the mind […]
