Pluto trine the Libra Full Moon – a new kind of diplomacy?:

I can’t help but look at Nancy Pelosi’s renegade trip to Syria in light of the recent Full Moon in Libra. Libra is the sign of diplomacy and relationship building, and the Full Moon, of which we are still basking in its shadow, made a trine to Pluto which generates transformation and powerful change.

The foreign policy of George Bush consists of ignoring nations that you don’t agree with and bullying those that you do agree with, and most thinking people agree that this has not been an effective strategy. The contrast between Nancy Pelosi’s trips to the Middle East, where she encouraged a dialogue between nations, and that of Condoleeza Rice which consisted more of bullying and criticism, was striking.

Also under the Full Moon, the British government quietly handed back to Iran a political prisoner in exchange for the release of British Sailors by the government of Iran. In my view, this was a lovely example of how a little give and take can solve an immediate issue and make everyone look like heroes.

Full Moon in Libra 2007

wada-basin-fractals014 Fractal from

The Full Moon in Libra today has a decidedly airy quality, making this an excellent time for visualization and the birthing of new ideas. Libra is the sign of relationships, but it is an air sign so it tends to focus more on the idea of relationships than the actual experience of bonding. The Libra Moon is opposed by the Aries Sun, so there is a duality present in this Full Moon between our partnerships (Libra) and the need for us to express our own needs (Aries). In the Full Moon period the Sun illuminates the Moon, offering an opportunity to balance the polarity and achieve greater wisdom.

Adding to the focus in air (the element of communication and ideas) of this lunation is a conjunction of Mercury (planet of communication and ideas) to Uranus (planet of radically new communication and ideas). You are probably beginning to see a theme here! Uranus is said to be the “higher octave” of Mercury, meaning that the processing of information occurs at a higher level and with more potential for transformation. We can be incredibly creative now, with uniquely individual (Uranus) ideas (Mercury). The need for independence is amplified by a square of Mercury to Jupiter which craves freedom to explore and develop one’s own theology. There is a great deal of potential for arguments under this comination and the surety that one’s position is the correct one.

Uranus tends to prefer to operate solo and independently, so our partnerships as illuminated by this Full Moon are more of a conceptual nature. While the focus of the Libra Moon is on achieving balance and harmony in relationships, this is accomplished by breathing fresh air into all of our partnerships and […]

More on the Pisces Eclipse

has a way of describing planetary events in a way that make them real to people that don’t really get the planets. Here’s a bit of what he has to say on the eclipse:

As the Sun is covered by the shadow of the Moon, emotions (moon) cloud our very being momentarily. Suddenly we’re irrational creatures, operating entirely through our unconscious motivations (namely all those reactions that have been repeated so often as to become part of our ‘auto-pilot survival system’.) So expect some old patterns to play out which will force you to stop and say ‘Whoa – this again?’.
This time we get to do it differently, by choosing to DELIBERATELY REACT DIFFERENTLY.

Pisces is the most sensitive sign because it involves a surrender of sorts – a cosmic orgasm, a sigh of “reality-relief” when we exhale, let go, release and give it up. Give what up? The emotion, the desire, the game, the fight, the trying, the maintaining, the working, the stress, the frustration, the elation, the hope, the anxiety, the excitement, the possibility.

We just are.

Everyone on Earth is participating in this grand Letting Go. Some people will choose to exit their bodies at this time (which is a regular daily occurrence but which may become significantly higher at this time, whether in the public eye or the person on the street) because death is a form of letting go. There are many manifestations:

Suddenly you don’t want to keep pushing and you stop all activity and just breathe.
You decide to go swimming instead of sitting around stressing about what to do next.
You sleep in an extra 12 hours with no alarm clock.
You cry – at a memory, a movie, something happens […]

New Moon Eclipse and the power of Pluto

The Sun will conjunct the Moon and the shadow will obscure them both in a partial solar eclipse at 10:43 pm est on March 18. It will be too dark to see in the Americas, but in Russia, India, China and the northern portions of Alaska the Sun will be partially obscured by the shadow of the earth.

New Moons are times of new beginnings, but as I’ve mentioned this is the last of a series (eight!) of New Moons in the last degrees of a sign, this time at the end of Pisces. I personally feel that this is symbolic of the closing of a chapter in the human experience. This past year has been tremendously powerful from an astrological perspective: we had six planets in retrograde motion at one time last summer, an opposition from Saturn to Chiron, a grand square that reverberated through the first half of the year and an opposition from Saturn to Neptune closing out the second half of the year along with this series of late degree New Moons. And then we had the reclassification of Pluto and the promotion of Ceres and the new Eris, indicating that something new is ready to enter the human consciousness.

Pluto will be exactly square to the lunation, suggesting a strong undercurrent of powerful impulses that may remain at the unconscious level, particularly since Pluto will be eclipsed by earth’s shadow when it passed in front of a star in the Sagittarius constellation. The New Moon in Pisces has a yearning for peace, for a transcendent experience of perfect love and compassion. The square from Pluto sends a rumbling message through the collective psyche that makes peace impossible until […]

Aquarian New Moon

“New Moon over the Atlantic” by Mark Daffey from

The New Moon on February 17 links the Sun and the Moon in Aquarius, the sign of idealism, innovation and revolution. Aquarius is the radical, the inventor – it seeks to change the status quo and provides vision for change. There is an electrical quality to Aquarius that can be unsettling for those of us who are more earth-bound, but if we let go to our attachment to the Way Things Are, the Aquarian process can be exhilarating.

The New Moon is the beginning of the lunar cycle and is therefore a good time for beginnings of all kinds. In the Islamic calendar the New Moon is determined as the exact time when the first crescent of the moon is actually seen, but the astrological New Moon is considered the conjunction of the Sun and Moon. The conscious Self and the instinctual Moon conjoin and there is a new focus and new direction.

This New Moon is exactly sextile to Pluto, a harmonious interaction that facilitates transformation and new beginnings (Pluto) and a letting go of anything that keeps us from being our authentic selves (Aquarius). This is the one of a series of New Moons in the last degrees of a sign, symbolizing a new beginning that arises from completion of the past. The addition of Pluto to the mix, with its ability to remove from our path anything that no longer serves us, shows that we are at the end of this cycle of beginnings that are endings and ready to move into the future with renewed clarity.

There is also an exact square of Jupiter to the Moon’s nodes, […]
