Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius!

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius August 7th @ 2:11 PM EST

First let’s look at the Lunar Eclipse.  A Lunar Eclipse happens twice in a year and happens when the Sun, Earth and Moon line up and the Earth casts a shadow on the moon.  This is a partial Lunar eclipse meaning that a portion of the Moon will pass through the earth’s shadow.

The Earth is partially blocking the communication of the Sun’s light to the Moon.  It’s like a mini black-out in some area of your life and this black-out causes a crisis to occur that ignites change in some area of your life.    Full Moon Lunar eclipse more intense than a normal Full Moon and we will be confronted with PURGING that which no longer serves our conscious evolution.

When the full Moon occurs, the Moon and Sun are in opposition to one another.  This configuration tells us there is a need to balance the shadow aspect of Aquarius Moon with the light of the Leo Sun.   Could this be outlandish and rigid ideas (Aquarius) that keep us from following our heart (Leo) or keep us from opening our hearts?   When our mind (Aquarius) rules our emotions (Moon) the path to our heart is blocked.

Aquarius rules groups, the collective, humanity and can be quite detached and rigid in its thinking.  Leo rules individual expression, the heart, and our creative process.  The North Node remains in Leo so we are headed toward expanding and opening our hearts.  The South Node is in Aquarius and we need to let go of this old energy that causes us to detach ourselves from our individual expression.  If we want to evolve we need to balance our heart and our head and ask the question: how can I use my individual expression of love to expand and grow the collective or human mind (humanity)?

There are two wonderful aspects in the sky that aid us in opening our hearts and minds to something bigger:  Jupiter sextile Sun and Jupiter trine Moon.   Humor, good will, and a dose of understanding reduce tension and anxiety and allow for more good-vibe flow.

There will be tension and adjustments added to this opposition by Jupiter square Pluto and Sun quincunx Pluto.

Jupiter square Pluto creates tension between power and success – hunger for power at any cost causes us to abuse our power and manipulate others.  This puts into motion negative karmic circumstances – so, please, use your power responsibly.   The higher vibe of this configuration is integrity and wisdom.

Sun quincunx Pluto could manifest as an outside threat trigging a personal issue.  What do you do when you are threatened or triggered?  Do you run and hide?  Do you manipulate? Do you fight? Do others try to manipulate you?  Will you delude yourself or allow someone else to take a few notches off your self-esteem (Sun quincunx Neptune).  The best course of action here is to let go and take the high road (compassion and a healthy dose of humor).  Exercise, meditate and get in touch with how you feel – before you explode.

Patience will take us far if we get trapped by these tensions.

We can take advantage of Venus in nurturing Cancer for comfort and well-being.  A healthy home-cooked meal, a late night move on Netflix or Amazon Prime, snuggling with your loved ones, having a picnic or family gathering barbecue or a weekend get-away are some examples of Cancer comforts.

New Moon in Leo — Waking up to our authentic selves

The new Moon is conjunct the Sun and Mars at the beginning degrees of Leo.  These three planets square Uranus in Aries challenging us to really be our authentic self.  The Moon is our instinctual nature, our habits, patterns, emotional life, our past and the Sun is our soul, our authentic self.  Our past and future collide in a union of past and future our personality and soul merge in the sign of individualistic and self-expressed Leo.  The Sun rules Leo and Cancer rules the Moon.  When they come together in new Moon fashion, there is a growth spurt; a conscious evolution waiting to take place.  Leo is a fixed sign and prefers to do it their own way and mainly because they can.  The action-oriented energy of Cancer has consolidated its energy when it lands in Leo so it knows how to love, to create, to express (if Leo could get out of its own way and realize that it takes two to tango, not just one.  That’s right.  It’s not all about you, is it?)

The added energy of Mars gives us courage, drive, energy, bravery to be fearless and push what lies Dormant out into the light of day.  Mars can be a warrior pushing the energy forward and can become impatient, irritated, heated when life is moving too slowly.  If we channel the energy of Mars from its higher perspective, the action we take this new Moon, will be the courage to express our authentic selves, and to love ourselves and others more.  The universal transit is begging us to choose love as we venture out into the world.  We may find that doing so is easy and we can surprise ourselves with the lessons we have learned about ourselves over the last month.

Uranus square this stellium in Leo can shake us up a bit – some unexpected surprise can create some friction on our ride through conscious growth and personal evolution.  Uranus is making a grand trine with Mercury in Leo and Saturn in Sagittarius.  Our thoughts and ideas are more innovative and unusual, perhaps surprising insights that can be responsibly manifested in our lives.

Chiron is making a challenging aspect to the new Moon asking us if we want to continue to do what makes us unhappy and in pain or if we are going to take those first bold steps into empowered happiness.  What we focus on becomes a practice and grows stronger with each moment.  We can focus on the pain and let that experience of pain be the life we live or we can focus on what makes us happy and let more light and joy into our hearts.

What bold new expression do you wish to manifest over the next month?  Do you have the courage to step into a new you?  Will you focus on all the pain in your life or all the joy?  Take your life and live it.  It’s the only one you got this go around.

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 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.

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.
