Full Moon Revelation

FULL MOON IN SAGITTARIUS – A Revelation OF EVENTS THAT LEAD US TO TRUTH AND WELL-BEING.

Let’s take a look at June 9th full Moon in Sagittarius and what it has in store for you.

The full moon’s light illuminates the night sky and metaphorically highlights a realization, Revelation or a goal that has come to fruition yet not fully complete.  The light of a full moon is like a beacon that guides us toward the finish line.

The full Moon is always opposite the Sun.  This opposition is a call toward balance in the areas these luminaries fall in your chart.  So, if the full Moon is located in the 8th house other people’s resources are highlighted.  This full Moon is also asking you how your personal resources (Sun in the 2nd house) are being used and balanced with other people’s resources.

The full Moon in Sagittarius is about emotional truth.  It’s about adding more focused and dynamic flexibility in how we express our emotional truth.

The full Moon is conjunct Saturn so this is an emotionally sobering aspect – where in our lives did we take risks that failed because we acted first before we found out the information?  We do this all the time when we buy a car, a home, sign-up for a student loan, (vote for a President)– and if we are pressured through the hard sell, we may succumb to signing on the dotted line before we know all the facts.  This is the balancing act we have with Sun in Gemini – exploring knowledge through examination of facts and ask pertinent questions about what we believe or what other people might be telling you.

When I look at the planets configuration, they are providing flexibility and action to support our truth.  We have Jupiter in Libra turning direct so we, hopefully, have been learning to expand our ideas of relationships and valuing differing ideas from our own without too much judgment.  Jupiter is making a harmonious aspect to this full Moon.  Jupiter rules Sagittarius so we could tend to emotionally exaggerate our stories to really drive home the point of our beliefs, our truths to convince others to believe us as well.

Mars has moved into Cancer and I call this the family warrior.  Mars the warrior and Cancer, home, family, personal security (and is ruler of the Moon) is asking us to set personal boundaries that cause us to feel safe, that protects our family.  We can also be rather ‘crabby’ here is as well when our needs are not met.

Venus is in Taurus, it’s natural home.  Sensual, earthy, artistic.  This is a self-care message and station identification break: get a massage or massage your loved one.  Spend time in nature, paint, sing, take a bath in essential oils – love yourself deeply.

So, the truth has been revealed or is continuing to reveal itself.  Are we going to fess up and start from scratch?  Or are we going to tell BS stories to keep our lies intact?

Tell the truth.  Question authority.  Do the research.  Examine the research. Set your boundaries in supportive, loving and gentle ways that respect you and others.

Above all, have fun and love yourself even more than ever.

Full Moon in Libra April 11, 2017

Full Moon in Libra at 2:08 AM EST this morning and 11:08 PM PST.

We are already in our Full Moon mode – so let’s get to it!

The Full Moon is the culmination of events that you started at the New Moon in Aries.   As we reap the fruits of our labor we can celebrate and further that energy into the next week or two.

The Full Moon in Libra is about how we feel (moon) about relationships and love as well as about how we feel about ourselves in those relationships.  Libra is an air sign and full of ideas about how to communicate with other people.  Libra will add grace and harmony to that communication and may not come across so authentic to the brash and authentic Aries.

When we had the New Moon in Aries we were concerned with asserting ourselves and plowing passionately and courageously toward our desires!  We were hoping that others would follow us down that path.   The Sun in Aries continues to support the self-s need to express one’s identity and purpose AND the Moon in Libra is concerned about maintaining harmonious communication and emotional balance with another (spouse, friend, etc).

The energy that can Heal this opposition is to strike a balance between your needs and the other’s needs.  How to do this?

First, let’s look at the other players in the sky.

The Moon (our emotions, memory and past) is conjunct Jupiter (our ability to elevate ourselves toward good fortune and abundance).  Jupiter grows and expands the Moon’s emotions.   With fixed star Spica, we really do have the support to be successful in our endeavors.  Jupiter is retrograde.  Are we on an emotional high and believe this awesome feeling is where it’s at?  Sometimes, it’s best to ride out the emotional wave before we move forward with a decision.  You know, those one night stands can be incredible until you wake up in the morning and go ‘what the heck was I thinking?’  Well, thinking was the last thing on your mind — it was all this feel good emotion.  Wait.  Reflect.

The Sun is conjunct Uranus so something wild and unexpected could cross our path and change the way we feel about someone or something.  It could make us feel excited about where we are headed and yet cause tension with the Moon and Jupiter.   Uranus could awaken us to our purpose or a higher purpose – it could enlighten us to who we are and who will we be or would like to be in the future.

Exciting change is on the horizon!

Jupiter and Uranus are in a T-square with Pluto –  Where we feel the urge to expand and grow will be opposing where we have had a sudden jolt or awakened to who we are – and this will cause tension and frustration with Pluto – death/rebirth total transformation or power to make significant changes in our lives.  Is someone or something getting in the way of you going after your dreams or are you assuming that this other person or situation is holding you back?  This energy is frustrating for certain because the energy in the collective is that we want to move forward and be happy productive people living out our dreams but there is still something we have to look at.

The practical way to heal this is through assertive communication.    Assertive communication blends the assertive and authentic qualities of Aries with the grace, skill and harmony of Libra communication.

We don’t have to give up our values, our goals, or our reason for being on this plane of existence to achieve what we want or to express what we want.

With all this retrograde energy in the air it is time to slow down and become conscious of what we want, how we want to get there, the structures of our belief systems and if they no longer serve a purpose or function well, and how we can communicate this to others (and ourselves).

Retrograde energy is NOT something to fear or an excuse for not taking responsibility for the chaos that happens in our lives.  Do not hide under a table or isolate yourself!  Retrograde energy activates the shadow side of the planet and the sign that planet travels in.  When we go retrograde, we change direction – meaning that instead of unconsciously doing what we do – we slow down and go within.  We reflect.  When that retrograde goes direct, so do we.  We come out with a new awareness to implement in our lives that will improve the quality of our lives.

Mercury is retrograde in Taurus/Aries – Mercury is our mind and how we think and communicate.  During a retrograde we will download or receive messages (Hermes ruler of Mercury) related to Taurus and Aries areas of our life where we are stuck or operate in shadow elements.  If we aren’t paying attention, then the chaos of Mercury retrograde will certainly get our attention so we can get the message!

I think that this Mercury retrograde is asking us to review our values (Taurus) and lift those values to a higher awareness (exalted Aries).  Expect change in unexpected and exciting ways.  You might get exactly what you’ve always wanted.

My astrological prescription:

  1. Learn and practice assertive communication skills (https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/Assertiveness.htm, or DBT Skills Workbook https://positivepsychologyprogram.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DBT-Skills-Workbook.pdf)
  2. Slow down. Take a walk in nature. Breathe deeply.
  3. Go within to reflect upon what is really important to you
  4. Make decisions that support and value who you are and where you want to go in life

Full Moon in Virgo Sunday, March 12, 2017 at 10:52 AM EST, 7:52 AM PST

The full Moon will be in Virgo and illuminating our health, daily routines and the work environment.  The daily home routines we encounter such as taking the trash out, cleaning the toilets and scrubbing the scum from the tiles in our shower or dusting behind the fridge, feel like a burden.  Even so, there are routine tasks of care in all aspects of our life.  At work, it may be the details in our paperwork, phone calls, filling out our time cards, driving through traffic – and then our self-care like eating healthy and taking frequent breaks or that massage you’ve been putting off.

Okay, not everyone can afford a massage – even so —  you have two hands and can do it yourself.  You don’t want to because it’s too taxing.  So, instead, you turn on the tele or eat your favorite ice cream.  Habits and comfort zone keeps us stagnant and not too fulfilled in the long-term.

Virgo can be prone to critical rumination when it is faced with doing something it doesn’t like or want to do. These critical mental Pattern cause us to make less healthy choices.

When the New Moon was in Pisces two weeks ago we weren’t thinking about spring cleaning or making healthier food choices.   We didn’t mind going out for a drink with our friends, dancing into the wee hours of the morning – or doing yoga, meditation or reading poetry to our loved ones.

Any mundane activity pales in comparison to a yoga session or clubbing with our friends.  Yet, these mundane activities are what keep our homes clean, us free of illness, and our minds less cluttered.

With the moon feeling tense vibes from Saturn we find these mundane routines stifling.  We might even hear the distant voice of our mother telling us to clean our room or make the bed – even worse – wash the dishes.

The moon is challenged by Mercury and the Sun.  Our mind wants to forge ahead and overlook the minute details and our deepest internal needs.   Chiron conjunct this Mercury/Sun configuration – we feel we can’t go out with our friends because we have homework to do.

The excitement of Uranus dashing our plans or taking us away from our plans is another sign that we just can’t find any peace in our lives or get shit done.  Or can you?

What is the resolution?

We have Pluto trine the Moon which provides emotional power to deepen our commitments to ourselves.

If we focus on the perceived drudgery as a spiritual task we can move our New Moon wish toward completion.  We can be spiritual, clean our toilets and have fun while we do it.

Let’s face it, don’t you feel better with a clean house, a clear mind and a cleaner body?

Be YOU — Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo

I apologize for missing the New Moon post – I was stricken with the flu.  I was in bed for many days and all I could do was sleep.  I did not feel like doing any mental work — I feel like this intense four day fever killed some toxins — hopefully not brain cells!   Now, I have  a lingering cough – and thinking about the upcoming Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo – February 10th – just in a few hours!

I couldn’t miss telling you all about this Full Moon.

This is an awe-mazing configuration we have right now – we have a mystic rectangle, a grand cross and grand fire trine, a yod and a t-square – I don’t think I left anything out!

We have some challenges, some magic and perhaps a miracle or two in the works —

What is a full Moon Lunar eclipse?   The earth is traveling between the Moon and Sun and the light from the Sun is blocked by the earth.  The earth creates a shadow on the moon.  The light from the Aquarius Sun can’t reach the Leo Moon – What this means is that the shadow elements of Leo are being highlighted.

What are Leo’s shadow elements?  Self-centeredness, narcissism, dictatorship – these elements are being exposed so we can heal the way we are approaching self-expression.  Leo is all about creative self-expression and can get side-tracked when it is too self-consuming.   Aquarius is about the collective mindset vs Leo’s version of the self – one is focused on what’s good for humanity and the other is focused on what’s good for the self – and we are all moving towards individuality that Leo demands – a more enlightened individuality that is aware of the collective needs.

The Sun’s light is just wanting to express itself and the polarity of the Aquarius Sun and Leo Moon is saying – shine – please shine but shine to inspire and motivate others to shine as well – everyone has a light to shine.

Where are you dictating and demanding of others?  What is it your heart is longing to express?  Where can you be more authentic?

It looks like this Fire trine is calling for revolution – an inner revolution – Uranus in Aries radical revolution, Moon in Leo—authentic self-expression – Saturn in Sagittarius – restructuring truths –

It is, truly, an inner revolution toward greater authentic self-expression in which we boldly tell the truth to ourselves about how we have been behaving.  This is not an invite to Criticize yourself — it’s an invite to be more loving to self and others — you can do it!

Jupiter in Libra is all about how we are relating to others in a big way – helps us to find a more harmonious and non-violent way to tell others what we think.

Wherever Leo/Aquarius is in your chart is where you will be called to be more authentically self-expressed – and go through a radical transformation – it is so cool that the planetary configuration is aligned in this way – so BE YOU, BOLDLY YOU!

The Solar Eclipse in Pisces is just two weeks away – the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle – continues to assist us in the progress we are making –

Full Moon in Cancer — Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

Full Moon Shine in Cancer – 22 degrees –6:33AM

Get Ready for Ch-ch-ch-changes – they are coming.  Exciting times are ahead of us!

This upcoming full Moon in Cancer will be making a Grand Cardinal Cross in the sky – with opposition of Sun/Pluto in Capricorn, Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries.  A grand cross happens in the sky when four planets square one another – 90 degree angles.  These four planets are also in opposition to another planet – 180 degree angle.  This type of configuration creates tension and challenge.  The opposition lends an either/or scenario – something is separated and opposed.  Cardinal means – ACTION!  During this Mercury retrograde, we have had plenty of time to reflect and now we can take action to resolve the tension.  Changes are afoot with this configuration and unexpected change at that.

The moon is at home in Cancer – and with the backdrop of the constellation Gemini – differing opinions (been going on in the world for quite some time) these opposing opinions could turn into arguments – when your security is threatened, what do you do? Do you react in a way that causes a shit storm – or do you have good mediation skills?  We could use our skills of reflection and mindfulness (you’ve been practicing, right?) – we know what we feel, we know how to cope and consciously we can intend to take the right action.

Now, with this grand cardinal square we have some helpers to make the emotional tension bearable  – we’ve got Neptune conjunct Venus which is a wonderful aspect for romance and adventure – music, poetry – art – and idealism.  This aspect is making a biquintile with the Full Moon – so a talent for lifting our mood is to create, create, create – listen to your favorite music, write some poetry, go see a movie or to an art gallery.  Get thee to the art house now!

We have Mars trine the Moon and sextile Sun – Saturn sextile Jupiter and Saturn trine Uranus.

We can harmonize our actions with our emotions by bringing attention to our intentions.  Saturn sextile Jupiter puts the brakes on overdoing it – even though the Moon in Cancer will want comfort and security – we have to push ourselves past our comfort zone – Cancer is about emotional security.  Playing it safe keeps us stuck in past conditioning – Instead of writing this blog, I could sit on the sofa and eat bon bons and pizza all night while watching re-runs of Doctor Who (which isn’t that bad of an idea) – or I could do something more productive that pushes me out of my comfort zone – could it be vlogging instead of blogging?

We also have Saturn trine Uranus – so if we focus on grounding ourselves in our bodies – we can limit the amount of shock waves that run through us.  If you’ve ever practiced deep breathing or meditation – over time this practice makes conflict easier to deal with – and more present and grounded.

Try this loving kindness meditation during your full moon ritual.

Let’s Talk – Gemini Full Moon

Gemini Full Moon at 7:05 PM EST – 4:05PM PST

In this age, which believes that there is a shortcut to everyone, the greatest lesson to be learned is that the most difficult way is, in the long run, the easiest.  Henry Miller

For some people, glossing over the truth is the easiest way to avoid potential conflict and have other people approve of us.  In some instances, avoiding communication altogether is a way to escape conflict that ‘might’ arise out of telling our truth.

Gemini is not known for emotional depth; it’s known for facts and information and communicating that information to others.  Gemini is known for its witty and clever quality – not necessarily concerned with the truth (that’s Sagitarrius’ domain).  This Full Moon in Gemini is not one of those moons.

The Full Moon illuminates Gemini so it brings to light information or facts that we previously weren’t aware of, perhaps even hidden from us.   The Full Moon is opposing Saturn in Sagittarius so there are some serious conversations we must have.

Let’s talk.

These two words, for some reason, sum up a lot of fear. We can’t have fun all the time.   Sometimes, we have to have those very difficult conversations with people about where we are coming from.  Conversations we don’t want to have because we are afraid of what others will think, afraid someone will leave us, afraid we will lose our job – afraid we will look like a weirdo – this is the time to put on your big girl pants.

In the Eastern time zone, the moon is moving through the 12th house of endings and karma – so we see here the culmination of our actions.  When we understand how our actions resulted in our circumstances, we can then let go, move on, transform our lives.

This is going to be easy to deal with because we have the full moon making a grand trine in air signs – so lots of talk (not the Mystical kind, yet).  By the next new Moon we know what it is we want to do differently.

Moon trine Jupiter in Libra and Mars in Aquarius – so these sobering talks we have will be about harmony, peace, social justice – and Uranus in Aries will add an unexpected spark to the mix as it sextiles the moon and trines the sun and Saturn – I think some really good things will come out of what we talk about.

You’ll be glad you did.

Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn is going to affect this Full Moon – stay tuned for more —

Taurus Full Moon

Full Moon Monday, November 14  8:52 AM EST — 5:52 AM PST

The Full Moon is the moment of possibility and birth of our new moon manifestation.  You have done the work, now it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor – and, continue forward with new knowledge and information you did not have at the beginning of the New Moon.

The Moon in Taurus – opposing the Sun in Scorpio– how will we balance these opposites?  The Sun is expressing intense conflicts that have arisen that portend a transformation – and the Moon wants to solidify this expression into material form – something tangible and meaningful –   How do we relate to the relationships in our life now that the shit has hit the fan?  Do we fight?  Do we ex-communicate (if you do that it Scorpio, it sticks) – or do we find a way to come together collectively (The Sun in 11th house) and do what’s right for all instead of what’s right for some?

The chart of the Full Moon has the Sun in 11th house at the cusp of the 12th and moon moving the 5th house.  What risks will and should we take toward feeling safe and protected?  What boundaries are important and not important?  The 5th house is about risk, children, what we love to do – it’s where we perform – what will we do individually that contributes to the collective?  11th house is the collective — and with Scorpio here, it’s about quality not quantity.

The pattern in the sky is a locomotive pattern and this is a very powerful pattern.  Power will emerge from a strong sense of lack or need – will we be looking for someone else to ‘fix’ the problem (collectively) and in our personal lives?  The empty houses that this full moon will need to fulfill are the 6th– 9th houses – about how we relate to one another (any kind of one-on-one partnership) in our daily lives (6th house) and use the information (Gemini in 6th, and Cancer in 7th) we have gleaned to form our beliefs and philosophy of life and of the world at large?

The North Node is in Virgo in the 9th house – as a nation we are called to heal the our beliefs and philosophy of life (and heal the wounds those beliefs and philosophies of life have caused others — healing shame, blame, guilt, illusion)– Virgo is mutable – and so we are adjusting our beliefs — Will it be my way or the highway?  What can we do on a microcosmic level that will move us toward the change we need on a macrocosmic livel? Are our goals too Lofty to be reached or too fixed to adjust?

This weekend, Venus forms a sextile to Neptune and trine to North Node – the energy is there to harmonize and cooperate to reach our goals – and to create art, music, literature (or merely view, listen, or read it) – and to open our hearts and come from a place of LOVE.
