Planetary news this week and the Supreme Court

By | 2018-09-25T09:04:08+00:00 September 25th, 2018|Planetary news this week, Politics|

This week’s biggest news of course is the big Aries Full Moon that occurred on the 24th.  Not big as in Supermoon big, but big as in eight planets all linked together in a dance of high energy planetary juju.  The energy of Full Moons take about three days to culminate and then about three days to dissipate so we are still riding the waves of that explosion of energies.

In the US news, the disruption of the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is a classic manifestation of the energies of this Aries Full Moon.  Mercury in Libra, desiring fairness, was tightly aligned to both the Sun and Moon, as was Chiron which brought up old wounds of the past to be addressed and hopefully resolved.  Uranus did indeed foster a disruption of the status quo which was looking like a seamless nomination and confirmation process.

This week we have a triple conjunction of the South Node (events of the past) to Mars (assertion and need) that includes the Black Moon Lilith, a force of primal feminism and the astrological mascot of the MeToo movement.  Combined with the lingering energies of the Aries Full Moon, this planetary dynamic will remain in effect at least until Friday.  Since allegations of sexual assault (connected with the Black Moon Lilith) are involved, I suspect the Supreme Court nomination process will not be resolved and more Kavanaugh accusers will come forward during this period.

Venus is in Scorpio now too, encouraging intense and passionate interactions which could overpower the tendency of Mercury in Libra towards polite conflict resolution.

It will be an interesting week!


 

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

By | 2018-08-09T19:11:09+00:00 August 9th, 2018|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 […]

Heads up! July’s lunar eclipse is the longest duration in a century

By | 2018-06-26T13:45:44+00:00 June 26th, 2018|Moon|

Blood moon eclipse July 2018  

The July 2018 full moon [in Aquarius] presents the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century (2001 to 2100) on the night of July 27-28, 2018, lasting for a whopping 1 hour and 43 minutes. (In contrast, the previous total lunar eclipse on , lasted 1 hour and 16 minutes.) A partial eclipse precedes and follows the century’s longest total lunar eclipse, each time lasting 1 hour and 6 minutes. So, from start to finish, the moon takes nearly 4 hours (3 hours and 55 minutes) to cross the Earth’s . …

This lunar eclipse is primarily visible from the world’s  (Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand). South America, at least in part, can watch the final stages of the eclipse just after sunset July 27, whereas New Zealand will catch the beginning stages of the eclipse before sunrise July 28. North America, most of the Arctic and much of the Pacific Ocean will miss out entirely…

Some say that the effect of an eclipse is most powerful where it is viewable, but in my research of mundane events I have not seen this to be particularly true.  From an astrological perspective, the energetic intensity of an eclipse stems from the fact that the Sun and Moon are in a tight relationship to the lunar nodes. The nodes of the moon are known as the Dragon’s Head (North Node) and Tail (South Node), and in many ancient cultures it was said that during an eclipse a dragon did battle with the moon – a myth that has a basis in science because of the proximity of the […]

The January 2018 “Super Blue Blood Moon” and the Leo/Aquarius axis

By | 2018-01-28T08:17:39+00:00 January 28th, 2018|Moon|

January 31 blood super moon eclipse

The Leo Full Moon on January 31st offers a trifecta of attributes which make this lunar event somewhat significant.  Most important from an astrological perspective, this is a total lunar eclipse with very tight angles to the lunar nodes, the points that represent our passage from past to future.  This tight connection between the Moon and the Sun and the nodes opens up a force field that unlocks areas of our life which we have shut down, or attempted to protect ourselves from.

Four of the five eclipses in 2018 are on the Leo/Aquarius axis, forcing us to confront areas where our need for personal development and satisfaction (Leo) are in conflict with the need to let go of some of our personal satisfaction in order to achieve justice and equality in the world around us (Aquarius).  Leo and Aquarius are opposites in the Zodiac – there is a tension between them that require integration and balance.  In this eclipse the Sun and South Node are in Aquarius, demonstrating the consciously creative impulse that is detached and manifests as pure energy.  The Leo Moon is bringing out our secret longings for recognition and pleasure, to find joy in the world and a sense of feeling special and unique, admired by those around us.  The North Node aligns with the Moon to assist us in this journey while not leaving behind the higher Aquarian aspirations towards a more transpersonal view.

The fact that this is a so-called “Blue Moon” is merely a calendar accident and has no real astrological significance.  However, this is a SuperMoon (© ), meaning the Moon is closer to the Earth than […]

A very wicked Mercury Retrograde! And “Mercury Max”

By | 2017-09-10T09:17:04+00:00 September 10th, 2017|Astrology in my world|

Am I the only one who has had a miserable time over the past three weeks?  I’m usually pretty good at navigating through Mercury retrograde periods, but this one really did wreak havoc in many areas of my life.  I can’t count the number of appointments that I either didn’t enter into the calendar or put in the wrong place.  Confusion in communication was rampant, including changing my mind and redoing certain things over and over.

All of this was made worse by the fact that Mercury (communication) aligned with Mars (passion and anger) at the eclipse degree, at the end of August.  Any issues that came up at the time of eclipse continued to erupt at that time.

Richard Nolle is a brilliant astrologer who first coined the term “Supermoon” for a lunation (Full or New Moon) that is closest to the earth.  Another one of his ideas is that of “Mercury Max” – the period of greatest elongation between Mercury and the Sun.  According to Richard, the Mercury Max period ”

begins when evening star Mercury reaches its maximum elongation (greatest distance) east of the Sun; extends through the Mercury  and the inferior , and ends when the little planet as morning star reaches its maximum elongation west of the Sun.

If like me this technical language is difficult to comprehend, the important thing to note is that these cycles occur four times a year in concert with the Mercury retrograde cycles.  The current Mercury Max cycle according to Richard began on July 30th and continued all the way through August, ending around September […]

Aries Full Moon on October 16th: Lock and load!

By | 2016-10-14T12:26:25+00:00 October 14th, 2016|Moon|

40171345 - man fire show on the beach ,koh kood ( kood island ) thailandAries is the sign of the warrior – the trailblazer, the adventurer, the lone gunman.  Ruled by Mars, Aries acts through raw instinctual power and primal motivations.  The Moon also rules instinctive behavior and reactions, but through emotion rather than force, so this is not a time when cool heads and rational thought will prevail.

In the Full Moon the Sun is opposite the Moon, with the Earth in the middle.  There is a need for finding balance between two zodiacal opposites, and here we have the Libra Sun seeking balance and harmony opposing the Aries Moon, urging us to find what’s real in our hearts and trust our instincts.  However, Mars is aligned with Pluto now so the aggressive force is made even more powerful.

This is a  (TM Richard Nolle) – the Moon is closer to the Earth than at other times and its influence is more powerful.  The psyche is deeply affected during the Supermoons, especially the Full Moons which tend to have a heightened abundance of emotional power anyway.

We can prepare for this infusion of warrior energy by becoming more aligned with our own warrior nature.  Increasing your physical strength, finding your center of power in the solar plexus, listening to hear where you may be holding anger in your body and finding ways to express that anger and release it – all of these are important tools for getting the most out of this powerful period.

To complicate matters, this Full Moon is aspected by Uranus – planet of radical reaction and revolutionary behavior.  If we are stuck in a pattern, relationship or situation, […]

Seeking comfort and healing under the Taurus Full Moon October 27th

By | 2015-10-26T17:16:11+00:00 October 26th, 2015|Moon|

Taurus Full Moon October 2015

When the Moon is full and brightest in the sky, it is always opposite the Sun, meaning the Moon and Sun are in opposite signs.  Signs in oppositions are polarities – there is a tension between the energies and a need to find balance.

Normally the Solar energy is more powerful than the Lunar.  The Moon moves more quickly, and its influence tends to be fleeting.  But at the fulfillment of the lunar cycle, when the waxing portion of the cycle is complete and the waning portion is about to begin, the Moon is at her most glorious and her influence is most potent.

The Taurus Full Moon on October 27th seeks comfort in the physical world – it is a sign that fully appreciates the sensory experiences that can be enjoyed through life in a body. as well as security through financial stability and a safe expectation that one day will follow another without too many surprises.  The Taurean need for peacefulness and balance is opposed by the Scorpio Sun which demands an added layer of probing and emotional intensity.  Both Taurus and Scorpio are fixed signs – they create power through perseverance.  But Taurus is ruled by Venus and Scorpio by Mars – and under the Taurus Full Moon the Venusian influence of love and harmony must work through the Martian focus on desire and motivation in order to find true balance.

In this Full Moon a triple conjunction from both Mars (energy), Venus (relating) and Jupiter (confidence and good fortune) are embedded in this chart which is generally very positive since the planetary rulers of the Full Moon (Mars and Venus) are aligned with Jupiter’s supreme beneficence and good […]

October 2015 Planetary Illuminations (astrological forecast) now posted

By | 2017-04-02T09:40:54+00:00 October 1st, 2015|Planetary cycles|

October astrological forecastIf you are on my mailing list you will soon receive your simplified version written in plain English that is easy to understand.  You can read the whole article here, and I’ve summarized the major events for you below.  I believe that we will find the intensity of the past few months beginning to subside as we move out of eclipse season and the disturbances of the major planetary alignments and begin to find our footing.


This summer has seen a heightened level of planetary energies culminating with the September eclipse series and the SuperMoon eclipse at the end of September.  As we move into the month of October we will find ourselves in completion mode as Mercury prepares to turns direct on October 9th.  These retrograde periods are meant for reflection and offer an opportunity to reboot all of our life systems, and once they are completed it becomes easier to move our lives forward in a more positive direction.

The only major planetary alignment to occur in October is a harmonious trine from Jupiter (expansion, positivity) to Pluto (transformation, new beginnings) on October 11th.  Both planets are in earth signs where there is a more practical application of the energies which assists us in making real changes, especially helpful after years of upheaval.  We must reimagine our lives now in completely new ways and continue to let go of the past.  As we continue to evolve into the Age of Aquarius our psyches and nervous systems are being continually rewired to adapt to the new energies.

The North Node retrogrades back into Virgo on October 10th (using the Mean, or averaged, Node – astrologers who use the True Node will have a different […]

The final Blood Moon occurs this week – end of the world?

By | 2015-09-24T13:01:39+00:00 September 24th, 2015|Moon|

peanuts(hint:  probably not!!)

As I wrote last week, the upcoming Full Moon this weekend is not only a (occurring when the Moon is at its closest point to Earth and therefore wields a more powerful influence) but also a Blood Moon eclipse (so called because of the red color that infuses the Moon during the eclipse.  It is also the final event of a Lunar Tetrad – a group of four total eclipses that occur within a six month period (read this earlier article for all the details).

(Geeky astro detail:  a lunar event is said to be an eclipse when the soli/lunar relationship (Sun and Moon) aligns with the lunar nodes.  When the alignment to the nodes is very tight the eclipse becomes a total eclipse and is more powerful astrologically.  The lunar nodes represent the flow of life from past to future, and eclipses therefore carry with them the ability to create profound change in our fate and our destiny.

points out that in the 21st century we have had a fair number of total eclipses, but this has not always been the case.

“During the 21st century, there are 8 sets of tetrads, so I would describe tetrads as a frequent occurrence in the current pattern of lunar eclipses,” says Espenak. “But this has not always been the case. During the three hundred year interval from 1600 to 1900, for instance, there were no tetrads at all.”

The evangelical rumor mill has jumped on the bandwagon, claiming that at the end of this current Tetrad the world will end, or Christ will return, depending on who you read.  Some writers have linked their conspiracy theories to the fact that these […]
