This Full Moon is a Supermoon

Full Moon Supermoonphoto taken from

The Full Moon on January 30st will be a very interesting event – so interesting that it’s getting its own radio show entitled “.”  It’s not only a powerful Moon astrologically, but it’s at perigee, meaning it’s at its closest proximity to the Earth.  This is why it is so big and beautiful, but it’s also more powerful now.  says it’s the biggest Full Moon of the year, and astrologer , who coined the term “Supermoon” as far as I can tell, predicts “an increase in coastal flooding due to higher than usual tides, a gaggle of strong storms with high winds and heavy precipitation (triggering inland flooding), and of course an up-tick in moderate to severe seismic activity (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes as well as volcanic eruptions).”

This Full Moon will stoke the fires of our inner aggression and challenge us to direct that fire wisely. The Moon is in the fire sign of Leo – the sign of expressing the Ego and expansion of the Self. The Leo Moon conjoins Mars, also in Leo, and opposes the Sun and Venus which are both in the impersonal (or transpersonal) sign of Aquarius.

The theme of this Full Moon is that of balancing the shadow of the inner fire for self-direction with the solar conscious principle of fairness and justice for all. This balance is not easy to achieve, but we have in the chart of this Full Moon the additional aid of a harmonious sextile between Pluto (transformation) and Jupiter (philosophy and Truth). We are certainly aware that our personal desires (Moon/Mars) are conflicting with what we know to be necessary in order […]

This equinox Libra Full Moon brings a shift in perspective

FULL MOON AT THE EQUINOX!!

The time of the Full Moon, when the Sun in the sky is exactly opposite the Moon from our vantage point on earth, is always a time for balance.  The Sun is our conscious Self – our goals, our visions, our ideas that combine to create our lives.  The Moon illustrates our instincts and our subconscious needs and desires – the emotions that can be murky but always real and true.

The lunar cycle is symbolic of the dance between our conscious awareness and the inner world of the emotions, a polarity which requires balance and integration just as all polarities in astrology do.  The entire wheel of the zodiac is a system of polarities, in which each pair of signs represent oppositional forces that require balance and integration.  That is particularly true when the Moon is in Libra, the sign that more than any other embodies this dance.

Libra seeks to live an experience of harmony through peaceful interaction with others and a love of beauty and aesthetic pleasure.  This can lead to a highly sensitive nervous system, especially at the Full Moon.

The Full Moon in March occurs at 0 degrees Libra, with the Sun at the Aries Point.  This will be a significant energy portal as we shift into the new season under the Aries/Libra polarity.   Not only is this a new season, but the emotional impact of the Full Moon supercharges the shift from darkness to light, from winter to summer.  This is also a SuperMoon, meaning it is at its closest point to the Earth, but it is also at the first degree of the cardinal signs that shift us from one season into […]

How to use summer’s final eclipse at the Leo New Moon

August 11 solar eclipse.  On August 11 we will experience the last in a series of three summer eclipses at the Leo New Moon.  This is not a particularly powerful eclipse astronomically as it is a partial eclipse.  It’s also not as powerful an eclipse astrologically since the lunar nodes, the points in the sky which turn a New Moon into a solar eclipse, will be thirteen degrees away from the lunation unlike the July 27th solar eclipse in which the nodes were very close to the Full Moon.

Still, this is a SuperMoon New Moon, just as the July 13th eclipse was a SuperMoon New Moon (™), meaning the Moon is closer to the earth than at other times.  This intensifies the qualities of the New Moon AND the solar eclipse as the lunar effect is more directly personal.

This Super New Moon is in Leo, the sign of the creative Self.  In a solar eclipse, the instincts and needs of the Moon eclipse, or overcome, the conscious motivations of the Sun.  However, both Sun and Moon are in the same sign, aligned and yoked together in partnership to assist us in forging a new beginning of the lunar cycle – in the case of Leo, a new beginning in finding the light and majesty of our True Selves.

Many aspects of our lives may have been stalled during the past few months with Mars in retrograde motion, followed by Mercury retrograde.  Mercury is lined up with the Sun and Moon at this eclipse, waking up the brain and the mind and helping us with improved communication and language skills. Proper use of the mental realm and communication is an […]

Venus in ascendance: Libra Full Moon and Venus at a standstill

“Moon Mates” by Goldenwolfen

The Full Moon in Libra takes place the evening of April 10th or morning of April 11th, depending on your time zone (6:08 am GMT on April 11th).  This Full Moon is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, harmony, beauty, romance, attraction, and wealth.  Known as the “lesser benefic,” Venus generally bestows blessings of harmonious energies and opens the heart if well aspected.

Venus has been retrograde since March 4th, turning our attention to the past and bringing us in contact with people, events and issues which we may have thought were long past.  Retrograde Venus is important for helping us to realign our relationships with our current selves, but it is not always an easy path.  Venus is stationary in the sky right now as it prepares to turn direct in a few days and we may feel somewhat stuck, unable to move forwards but also not able to let go of the past.

To complicate matters further, Venus is locked in a tight conjunction to Chiron, the planet of wounding and healing.  This combination of planets is superb for growing through circumstances which may have prevented us from opening our hearts in the past – IF we face the demons that are presented to us at this time.  The heart cannot open if it is full of resentment and blame, and Venus/Chiron combinations will bring these to the forefront so that they may be resolved.

At the time of the lunation, the Libra Moon aligns with Jupiter, also in Libra, further amplifying the Libran urge to find balance and harmony through justice and common ground. All Full Moons incorporate a need to find  balance between two polarities, the Sun in one and […]

Cancerian Full Moon, January 12th: Balance, stability and Magic

Cancer Full Moon January 2017As we approach the Cancer Full Moon on January 12th, a harmonious Mars cycle helps to energize us and shake off inertia.  We are inspired now for transformation and are likely to feel more alive and aware which will help us to find greater balance during this lunar time where much goes on beyond the superficial level of daily consciousness.

Full Moons always include some tension since the Sun in Capricorn with its focus on practicality and the ends justifying the means, is exactly opposite the Moon in Cancer, inspiring emotional sensitivity and connection to tribe, pulling us in both directions and requiring us to find a way to integrate the opposite signs.  Cancer is the Moon’s own sign which intensifies this lunar quality of shifting moods and instinctive reaction.

Creating even greater tension is an exact Grand Cross with Jupiter and Uranus as well as the Sun and Moon.  Grand Crosses carry a tremendous amount of power in the tension that they bring to bear. They aren’t always comfortable, but this will be a powerful Full Moon that is full of magic. Any hidden restlessness or longing for freedom will erupt under this Full Moon which demands that we find balance between the emotional pull of our inner world (Cancer) and our need to find stability in the outer world (Capricorn).

This Full Moon asks us to open up our hearts to love and magic while keeping our feet firmly planted in the structural reality of the world around us, and to prioritize stability while exploring the nether regions of the psyche without becoming lost in either dimension.

The effect of a Full Moon lasts for about three days, and then we have a couple of stressful Mars […]

Scorpio New Moon at All Hallow’s Eve 2016 – what could be more perfect?

Scorpio New MoonThe Scorpio New Moon occurs late on the 29th/early on the 30th depending upon your time zone.  New Moons are widely heralded as times of brand new beginnings, and the sign that the New Moon falls in defines the energies at work as we reboot and begin again.  The Scorpio New Moon demands that we find our passion – take a stand.  This is not a time for superficiality; under the influence of Scorpio we must dive into the subconscious and unearth our most secret desires.

The planet Mercury, the messenger god, aligns with the Sun and Moon to motivate a greater understanding on the intellectual level.  Traditional astrology calls a Sun/Mercury conjunction “combust” and assumes that the Sun weakness the energy of Mercury, but in my experience a Sun/Mercury alignment adds the light of consciousness from the Sun to the mental workings of Mercury to illuminate and add greater insight and awareness.  At this time of year the veil that separates the planes of earthly existence from other planes grows thin, and Mercury, in its role of messenger, aids in communication between the worlds.

This New Moon has the potential to release creativity and magic thanks to a lovely trine to dreamy Neptune.  Under the realm of Scorpio we can harness emotion in its purest form – raw, instinctive and potent.  Neptune encourages us to open our hearts to a more transcendent magic.

This New Moon comes at the time when the veil between worlds is said to be thinnest, at All Hallows Eve, and the astrology is perfect for a powerful shamanic journey.
