The Leo Full Moon on the star Regulus, February 18

Full Moon Leo RegulusThe Full Moon that occurred early this morning occured at the 29th degree of the sign of Leo.  The 29th degree, sometimes called the “critical” or “anaretic” degree, is associated with the endings of cycles and new beginnings.  The word “anaretic” derives from “anareta,” which in medieval astrology signified the planet of death in the natal horoscope.  This is likely what has given the 29th degree such a bad rap in traditional astrology, although endings are actually the harbinger of new beginnings and not to be feared.

In any case, the fixed star Regulus is at the 29th degree of Leo, so this Full Moon is in an exact conjunction.  Regulus is one of the four Royal Stars of ancient Persia and called the “Lion’s Heart,” which is perfect for its placement in the sign of Leo, but will be less perfect when Regulus moves into Virgo this year.

At any rate, this Full Moon includes an alignment of three planet in Aquarius: the Sun, Mars and Neptune.  This is a rather challenging combination that can confuse (Neptune) the direction of our motivation and drive (Mars), especially since the Moon in the Full Moon chart is in opposition to these planets and takes us more deeply into our emotions.  We just have to ride the wave rather than try to control it.  Something is ending now, and we are the witnesses.

The Full Moon is accompanied by the challenging square between Jupiter and Pluto that I mentioned in yesterday’s post about the Day of Rage in the middle east.  The battle for supremacy that is driven by the face-off between Jupiter and Pluto combined with the Full Moon  and Regulus suggests the ending of […]

Full Moon in Cancer, January 19 2011

Cancer Full MoonThe Full Moon occurs on January 19th at 4:21 pm Eastern at the 29th degree of Cancer. The sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon, so the Moon is particularly powerful during the Cancerian Full Moon.

Like the Moon, Cancer is emotional and vulnerable – tender and soft and needing to be nurtured. A cardinal water sign, the emotions of Cancer are active rather than passive – there is a need not only to feel deeply, but also to take action in some way such as offering food or providing some other kind of sustenance.

In the dance between the Moon and the Sun, the cycle begins at the New Moon with the Sun/Moon conjunction, and reaches its apex at the Full Moon when the Moon opposes the Sun and challenges its authority. Ancient customs of howling at the Moon to release one’s instinctive side reflect the fact that the subconscious interior of our innermost being is more easily accessible when the Moon is full. And when the Moon is full in Cancer, it’s time to delve into the realm of feeling and open the door for the inner child to enter.

This Full Moon occurs at the 29th degree of Cancer. The 29th degree is the completion of one sign and the transition to the next, so here we are completing the sensitive emotionality of Cancer as we prepare to move into more of a focus on Self in Leo with the solar polarity moving from the practicality of Capricorn into the quixotic unpredictability of Aquarius. The lunation makes no aspects to any other planets so it is not likely to be experienced with much intensity. A pleasant sextile from the Sun to Jupiter helps […]

New Year/New Moon Capricorn eclipse, January 4 2011

Eclipse January 4 2011Happy new year everyone!

I apologize for being somewhat AWOL over the past few weeks.  I have been making a lot of changes in the physical space and the technology in my office, and combined with the activities of the holidays there has not been much time for writing.  Now that the new year has begun, and my projects are ALMOST complete, I hope to see you more often once again.

The second in a series of eclipses that began with the lunar eclipse at the Winter Solstice occurred this morning at around 4 am Eastern time.   This eclipse, a solar eclipse at the New Moon in Capricorn on January 4th, features a lineup of four planets in Capricorn including not only the Sun and Moon, but also Pluto and Mars.  An eclipse occurs when one of the lunar nodes conjoins the Sun or Moon at the time of a lunation (a full or new Moon), and in the case of this eclipse Pluto is the bridge between the New Moon and the North Node.

Because the New Moon is the beginning of the lunar cycle, and because this New Moon contains the North Node which represents our future direction and Pluto creates endings that assist us in transformation, there is a sense here of propulsion into a new framework (Capricorn) that will help to support our lives and provide us with a stronger foundation than we have had before.  Any time Pluto is involved, there is a need to surrender and allow our higher selves and spirit teachers to create the necessary movement that will help to facilitate growth and evolution.  The Jupiter/Uranus urge to break apart these structures makes it absolutely imperative that the […]

Solstice Full Moon: December 21, 2010

Solstice eclipse 2010The Full Moon on December 21st is at the last degree of Gemini and it occurs on the same day as the Solstice, a relatively rare event.  There is a fair amount of dispute on the web as to exactly how rare it is: the Spaceweather site originally listed the year 1378 as the last time an eclipse fell on the Winter Solstice but astrologer Kathryn Cassidy has been .  The Spaceweather site now lists the year 1638, but that was NOT the last eclipse that fell on the Solstice.  The actual date for the last time an eclipse fell on the Solstice was December 22, 1703.  That was a VERY powerful eclipse because the nodes of the Moon were in a nearly exact conjunction with the lunation (the opposition of the Sun and Moon).

Eclipses occur when a lunation (new or full Moon) occurs near one of the nodes of the Moon (see this earlier article for more details). Astronomers use a wide orb of 15 degrees to define an eclipse, but when the lunar nodes are closer to the Sun and Moon the effect of the eclipse is more intense.  This eclipse is a strong one, with the lunar nodes within four degrees and Pluto within six.  So Pluto becomes part of the Full Moon and therefore the eclipse, marking the necessity for letting go and deep transformation.

The Winter Solstice occurs when the Sun enters the sign of tropical Capricorn.  The chart for the Solstices and Equinoxes are often used as a predictive tool to gauge the upcoming events of the next three months.  At the Solstices and Equinoxes the Sun moves into one of the […]

New Moon in Sagittarius, December 5 2010

New Moon SagittariusMars and Uranus are locked in a challenging square at the moment, and even though Mars transits usually last just a day or so the energy of this square is locked into the New Moon chart so the effect will be pronounced over the next few days.  Mars is energy, enthusiasm, motivation, anger and rage – Uranus is radical thinking, revolutionary behavior, a disdain for the staid and conventional.  You can see where the combination of these two promotes recklessness and irritability.

This somewhat disruptive influence leads us to the Sagittarius New Moon on December 5.  Uranus turns direct on the very day of the New Moon, so it is even more of a powerful player in the New Moon alignments.  The New Moon is the beginning of a new lunar cycle and offers an opportunity for a fresh new beginning in a new sign of the zodiac, with a new focus and energy.  In Sagittarius the soul seeks experiences which extend our reach and satisfy our search for adventure and meaning, and the Sagittarius New Moon seeks optimism, confidence, and the development of an inner trust and faith in life itself.

With Uranus shining a laser beam of radical intensity into this New Moon, the soul seeks change and liberation from restrictions.  However, the Sun and Moon are both in a harmonious sextile to Saturn, suggesting that as we expand beyond our restrictions through the Sagittarian effect and liberate ourselves under Uranus, we also build a new structure (Saturn) within which to explore these new ways of living in the world, thereby providing us with an an increased sense of balance.

Still, with a conjunction of Mercury to Pluto in the New Moon chart there is […]
