Solar Eclipse at the New Moon October 23 2014

By |2014-10-22T04:49:57-04:00October 22nd, 2014|Moon|

Athena by the late Susan Seddon Boulet

Although the New Moon tomorrow is an eclipse at the first degree of Scorpio, there is still an intensely Libran influence during this last day leading into the eclipse.  Four planets (including the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon)  are in Libra, and the Sun is aligned with Venus, Libra’s ruler.  Libra and Venus possess a strong but delicate energy – inspiring relationship and harmony, yet requiring a peace and beauty.

This sensitivity will have to give way to tougher stuff when the Moon and Sun conjoin at the New Moon in the more intensely demanding sign of Scorpio on October 23rd at 5:57 pm Eastern time.  Scorpio says “forget your dainty tea parties and your loving relationships – strip yourself of your polite veneer and find your true passion.”   Scorpio has no patience for the superficial and encourages us to walk bravely into the fire of our dreams where any hesitation and fears can be burned away, leaving us to be reborn in the ashes of the fire – a cathartic emergence into our true selves and our true empowerment.

The zero degree point of Scorpio marks the entry into the period between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice that culminates at 15 Scorpio.  This is the time when the veil grows thin and communication between the worlds of the dead and the living may occur. We are highly connected now to the interplay of dimensions and intuitive abilities are at their peak.

Venus continues to play an important role, meeting the Sun and Moon in Scorpio and preparing us to dive into the depths of the dark pool.  There is tremendous potential now for our relationships to […]

Magic and Happiness catch fire at the Leo New Moon

By |2014-07-26T18:25:59-04:00July 26th, 2014|Moon|

Leo New Moon I found this image on a free wallpaper site.  If this is your art, please be sure to let me know.

The Moon is new in Leo on the 26th of July, fusing the Sun and the Moon in the sign that opens the heart and encourages us to find our own best expression.  Consciousness becomes alive under the sign of Leo, and our sense of self is highlighted and encouraged to flower.

Both the Sun and Moon align with Leo at this time, and Jupiter has newly entered Leo.  That sense of heart-opening and a continually expanding thirst for joy is fresh and new now – perfect for this New Moon.

Saturn is still wrapped in a harmonious embrace with Chiron, helping us to give structure and order (Saturn) to our quest for healing and wisdom (Chiron).  This aspect has underpinned the challenges of the past few months and assisted in our developing greater understanding and releasing the wounds of the past.

Mars has just entered Scorpio and square the New Moon in a 90 degree aspect of tension and passion, demanding that we let go to the dynamic impulses that may seem untamed or impractical.  Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio and is very happy in that passionately intense sign where it no longer has to be pleasant and polite as it has been these past many months in Libra.  However, that Mars is also square to Jupiter, and when the god of war (Mars) faces off against the king of the gods (Jupiter) things can get a bit testy.  Anger, desire, inspiration and motivation – all Mars traits – are expanded during this time and we may feel reckless and willful.  Just go with the flow, as long […]

Curiosity and knowledge: Keys to the Sagittarius Full Moon, June 2014

By |2017-06-07T08:30:56-04:00June 12th, 2014|Moon|

The Sagittarius Full Moon takes place just after midnight on June 13th Eastern time.  The Moon in Sagittarius encourages us to expand our visions – to aim higher and gain greater understanding.

In Sagittarius we refuse to take no for an answer – suddenly we know that we can do and be more than we ever thought possible before. Like all Full Moons, the Sagittarius Moon will be exactly opposite the Sun in Gemini.   Gemini wants to embrace the entire world – Sagittarius chooses instead to learn and grow more deeply in knowledge.

In this Full Moon we seek to balance our curiosity and tendency to take the superficial road (Gemini) with the lunar desire to seek the greater truth.  Gemini’s ruler is Mercury, and Mercury is retrograde now.  Gemini has the tendency to take in too much data and become distracted, and the retrograde Mercury encourages this tendency which can make the expansion and focus process more difficult.  Balance and equilibrium between these two opposing forces is the key.

Venus is active now, harmonizing with Chiron to facilitate healing and wisdom in our relationships, and opposing Saturn to emphasize our obligations and responsibilities to the people around us.  The Sagittarius Full Moon seeks expansion and the freedom to pursue our dreams, and under  this combination of influences we may feel that our duties to others (Venus/Saturn) interfere with our soul’s need to be free to seek experiences that teach us (Gemini/Sagittarius). Mars challenges Pluto right now, potentially inflaming situations but also adding creative fire to everything we do.  A harmonious trine from Saturn to Chiron will help to soften the hard edges, healing the sore spots so that we don’t become stuck in the darkness.

Full Moons illuminate the darkness – now is the time to let your […]

Aries New Moon astrology and the April Grand Cross

By |2014-03-30T17:18:09-04:00March 30th, 2014|Moon|

Aries new moon grand cross

Today’s New Moon is in the cardinal sign of Aries – the first sign of the Spring season.  There is a sense of new beginnings – of pregnant anticipation.  Something  is about to burst forth, to blossom and the old is made new again.

The New Moon occurs today at 2:45 pm Eastern and falls at 9 degrees Aries.  Both the Sun and Moon link up with Uranus, the planet of revolution, encouraging us to shed the shackles of the past and the restrictions of our established patterns and routines so that we can be transformed by this new energy.

These three planets and lights in Aries form a square to Pluto, planet of destruction and regeneration. This pressure for change is not an invitation – it is a requirement.  Pluto will ensure that anything standing in our way will be decimated so that the force for change can work its magic with or without our cooperation.

Jupiter is involved here too – the “great benefic” with its super-confidence and gift of good fortune and opportunity, but here there is a challenge to surrender our ideologies and our need to be right.  The old gods are destroyed when Jupiter and Pluto go to war, and there are new gods to be discovered.

This is a hint to prepare us for the next few weeks which will bring us more of this intense conflicting energy that paves the way for a transformational future.  The energy will continue to intensify as Mars plays more of an active role, but for now the New Moon energy can inspire us with excitement and encourage us to follow the Aries archetype of adventure as we […]

Burst into awakenings: Aquarius New Moon January 30, 2014

By |2014-01-29T07:34:47-04:00January 29th, 2014|Moon|

The way to the New Moon on January 30 is paved by a harmonious sextile aspect from the Sun to Uranus today (January 29th).  The Sun bestows life-giving energy and positive life force, and when it harmonizes with Uranus, the planet of awakening and change, there is a blossoming of potential that stirs the soul and inspires a departure from the ordinary.  Anything is possible now, but under the opposition from Jupiter to Pluto we must  be very mindful of our thoughts and longings, because you just might get what  you wish for.

Both of these influences are embedded in the chart for the Aquarius New Moon – a “double whammy” Aquarius influence because the Sun and Moon are both in a harmonious sextile to Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius.  This is a time to shatter old paradigms and venture into the unfamiliar.  Break out of your routine and create something new in your life.

This New Moon is a “Supermoon,” a lunation that occurs when the moon is at perigee (closest to earth).  The term “Supermoon” is in common usage now, even by astronomers, but it was first coined by astrologer to whom I like to always give credit.  When the Supermoon is a full moon, it appears larger than life in the sky – a powerful presence that connects us intimately and powerfully with the lunar instinctive side of our nature.  When the Supermoon is a New Moon it is not visible in the sky and therefore its influence is different than when the Moon is full. This is the second New Moon Supermoon in the month of January.

As the beginning of the new lunar cycle, […]

New Year, New Moon!

By |2014-01-01T09:36:20-04:00January 1st, 2014|Moon|

Photo by Steve Matteo

The beginning of 2014 brings us a powerful New Moon in Capricorn, with a Grand Cross in the cardinal (action) signs.  Cardinal signs are initiators – they inspire leadership and movement and are just the thing to motivate the kind of goals and dreams that the New Year tends to foster.

This New Moon is a Supermoon (this term is in common usage today but was actually coined by astrologer ) because it is at its closest point to Earth.  It’s typically the Full Moons that bring about the greatest emotional exposure, but a Super New Moon can open up doors to new changes that are otherwise closed to us.

Capricorn is the sign of achievement and structure – stability, success and the trappings of success. Capricorn is the climber, and driven to produce something that will last.  This New Moon gives us an opportunity to manifest our dreams into the material world.  The Sun, Moon and Mercury are all tightly conjunct, and the presence of Mercury helps to translate our longings into ideas.  The addition of Pluto in the tight formation intensifies the power of Will and if we can focus that Will, magic can happen.

Mars in Libra squares the Capricorn planets, and some frustration or irritation could result.  Jupiter in Cancer is also involved, enlarging and expanding our desires and our need to break away from any shackles we have found ourselves in.  Uranus in Aries completes the Grand Cross, shattering paradigms and providing a window to break free if  we will only open it.  The Uranus/Pluto square is a powerful driver here, but now we have a team of other planets helping to facilitate […]

Sunday inspiration: Finding balance in the Capricorn Moon

By |2013-06-23T06:43:50-04:00June 23rd, 2013|Inspiration|

June Supermoon from Theoi.com

Today’s Full Moon is getting a lot of press because it’s literally the biggest Full Moon of the year – a Supermoon as coined by astrologer

From a post on the : “When the Moon’s feminine energy is combined with Capricorn’s discipline and drive for success, the result is a powerful, successful and disciplined female. The Greek goddess Athena immediately came to mind as a feminine archetype that knows her own worth and is not afraid to engage in the affairs of the world.”

That combination of engaging deeply in the realm of feelings and the inner heart (Cancer) and mastering the affairs of the world (Capricorn), like all polarities, can be difficult to achieve.  The appellation Athena means “Divine intelligence” and she was born literally from the mind of god (the head of her father Zeus).

When we live too entirely within the realm of feeling (Cancer) we risk losing the intelligence of the world that aids us in its mastery.  But if we place our entire attention on the machinations of the outer world and building structures to contain our lives (Capricorn) we risk losing the intuitive intelligence that connects us to others and helps us to work together for more effective life strategies.

That makes this image of Athena a brilliant one for the Capricorn Full Moon – she embodies the Divine Intelligence that helps us to bridge compassion and effectiveness, nurturing and discipline, the inner emotional realm and achievement and success.  Protecting one’s inner world and loved ones (Cancer) in order to grant success in the material world (Capricorn) is in fact Athena’s domain.

So at this Full Moon we seek to allow our hearts to […]

Full Moon in Scorpio and the first eclipse of 2013

By |2013-04-25T07:03:26-04:00April 25th, 2013|Moon|

Lunar eclipse April 2013Today’s Full Moon is a powerful one, as I was reminded when it shone through my window and brightened the room into full daylight.  As in every Full Moon, the Sun is opposite the Sun which is in Taurus.  This creates a need to find balance between the equanimity and stability of Taurus with the need for deep regeneration and soul processing of Scorpio.  This Full Moon is a time of going deep within to confront whatever monsters lie deep in the psyche so that they can be put to work for us rather than lurking in the darkness.

Scorpio is a water sign, but its traditional ruler is Mars which is the fire planet so Scorpio also adds a fiery and passionate side to the watery realm of feelings and intuition.  With the Sun still in a conjunction to Mars until early to mid-April, the fire of the past month has not totally subsided.  Still, when the Sun and Mars both moved into Taurus a few days ago there was a grounding of all of that fire that can help promote relaxation and a reduction of stress.

This event is an eclipse because the Sun and Moon are 11 degrees from the lunar nodes.  Eclipses are significant because of this nodal connection – the nodes of the Moon are simply points in the sky that mark the passage of the Moon around the solar orbit (ecliptic), but in astrological symbolism the lunar nodes are connected to fate.  Not always, but often something arises during an eclipse that is later seen to be a pivotal point in our lives.

The tighter the connection of the nodes to the lunation (Sun/Moon aspect), the more powerful the eclipse.  Astronomers […]

Scorpio Solar Eclipse at the New Moon, November 13 2012

By |2012-11-13T13:41:16-04:00November 13th, 2012|Moon|

Scorpio eclipse 2012Today’s Scorpio New Moon is a total eclipse, amping up the power and volume of the Scorpio energy to sweep away the debris of the old and decaying aspects of our lives.  Scorpio is intense and passionate, but also courageous and powerful – let go of any desire for the superficial today.

Scorpio is closely connected with death and the occult, and the idea that the veil between this world and others is thinner than we’d like to think.  In this lunation the Sun and Moon are closely aligned with the North Node (future destiny) and opposite the South Node (past karma), giving us an opportunity to propel ourselves forward into a compelling future that is based on the big Truth rather than our ideas that underpin our beliefs about reality.  (A lunation is said to be an eclipse when the Sun and Moon are near the lunar nodes, signifying an event that carries importance and a fated quality.)

Saturn trines Pluto at this New Moon, and since Pluto as the modern ruler of Scorpio has a seat of honor at the table of this eclipse and Saturn is in the sign of Scorpio, ruled by Pluto, this is a dynamic alignment which fosters personal growth through focused effort.

The ancient Celts looked at the Scorpio time of year as the darkest time of year (in the Northern hemisphere) before the world began anew at the Winter Solstice.  There is a quality of rebirth and regeneration with Scorpio that immediately follows the necessary destruction of the old, and we can be the witnesses of this magical transformation if we only open our eyes.

Scorpio Full Moon: May 5, 2012

By |2012-05-04T07:02:52-04:00May 4th, 2012|Moon|

Full Moon ScorpioIn the Full Moon is in Scorpio nothing is superficial – this Full Moon is all about delving deep into the Mysteries where the Truth lies unexposed in its raw and most real form.  The astrological Moon represents our emotions and feelings – it shows where we retreat to when we are under stress and our instinctive reactions that are unencumbered by any sense of what others expect.

Scorpio is a water sign and therefore involved with the emotional realm.  But Scorpio’s traditional ruler is Mars – a fire planet.  The emotion of Scorpio is nothing like the “go with the flow” emotional adaptability of Pisces, or the deeply sensitive and easily wounded nature of Cancer.  Scorpio is passionate and intense and can be aggressive in its need to defend and protect.  Scorpio’s modern ruler is Pluto, the planet of transformation and the ultimate Truth of Life and Death, which drives that need for intensity into a powerhouse of release and reconstruction.

In the Scorpio Full Moon the lunar instinct turns towards the fire of emotion in order to find our inner passions and face our emotions with courage and awareness. However, the Sun is opposite the Moon in Taurus, seeking peace and serenity in the midst of that Scorpionic emotional fire.  The Full Moon, like any opposition, requires balance.  The Scorpio Moon is in its ascendancy and is the stronger of the two during this lunar event, but the Taurus Sun is whispering to us, encouraging us to stay rooted into the Earth while we allow the fire of our passions and enthusiasm to engulf us in the flames of transcendence.

Scorpio as a rule demands our complete attention, and that will be emphasized as an […]
