  • The Full Moon on 2nd July in the serious, ambitious sign of Capricorn has the flavour of the 4th-10th house axis (Cancer-Capricorn), the intimate versus the public, home versus work/career, fluidity versus rigidity etc. Raven Kaldera in his book “Moon Phase Astrology” calls this moon the “Grandmother’s Moon”. The Grandmother is the head of her family, clan or tribe and she rules all blood relatives and cares for them intensely. Under this Moon we may feel older, wiser and a little more rigid, it’s the destiny of Capricorn to embody maturity and this Full Moon is the archetype of [...]

    On June 25th Mars, the warrior, the womanizer, the risk taker, the argumentative one, the impatient, enters the sign of Cancer, the sign of emotions, the most romantic of the whole zodiac, the sensitive one. How the heck can Mars feel at home here? In fact, Cancer is the sign of fall for the planet Mars, where he least feels welcome. Oh, certainly, there may be some good things we can say about Mars’ stay in Cancer. He becomes imaginative and creative pursuing interests independently and ambitiously, but not directly. After all Mars is the ruler of the Cardinal sign Aries and Cancer is [...]

    On Tuesday June 16th there will be a New Moon at 25°07’ of Gemini, it will take place at 14.30 GMT. According to Raven Kaldera in his book “Moon Phase Astrology”, the New Moon in Gemini is known as “the little brother’s Moon” he describes this Moon as “a nervous Moon under which concentration can be difficult”. So this maybe a good time to socialize with friends rather than work late in the office. This New Moon occurs in a sign that is ruled by Mercury (now travelling direct after its second retrograde period of this year) and he is also in the sign of Gemini at this time. [...]

    In the previous three “Back to Basics” articles we discussed planets (the who or the actor), signs (the how or the costume) and houses (the where or the scene). Planets in the natal chart usually make some kind of aspect to other planets or angles in the chart (there are some people who have one or even more planets that do not make major aspects to other planets/angles in their chart and these no-major-aspect planets are known as Singletons but we can talk about these in one of our next Back to Basics articles). The zodiac wheel is divided into 360° degrees, each of the twelve zodiacal [...]

    On June 2nd there will be a full moon at 11° 49’ of Sagittarius. According to Raven Kaldera in his book “Moon Phase Astrology”1 this moon is known as the “Priest’s Moon”. It’s a Moon that invites us to think about our backgrounds and the beliefs we hold, not necessarily our religious beliefs, and if we are ready, able, and willing to question them. This Moon will also be operating on the 3rd-9th (Gemini-Sagittarius) axis of the traditional horoscope, therefore it will have a flavour of the “how I think” versus “how others think” dilemma as well as the reason versus [...]

    What’s it like to be an Earthling? When we were born the Sun was in a certain sign of the zodiac and the Earth was in the sign exactly opposite this. Eg.: Aries Sun and Libra Earth, Cancer Sun and Capricorn Earth etc. Following this reasoning, we might assume that we are spiritual entities born into a physical environment, such as the body we inhabit. We need to make a distinction however between the terrestrial globe on which we live and the conditions under which we operate. Although the Earth might last forever as a planet, the conditions under which we operate are ever-changing, and [...]

    On Monday there will be a new moon at 26°56’ of Taurus. In his book “Moon Phase Astrology” author Raven Kundera calls this moon “The Dryad’s Moon”. He describes this moon as “a form closest to nature as is possible for humankind to get”. It’s a very intuitive moon where words are superfluous and “touch” all important, in a word: “sensuality”. Also with Taurus being ruled by Venus it’s easy to see that it’s also about comfort, harmony and love. In the traditional zodiac Taurus is associated with the 2nd house so this New Moon will have a 2nd-8th house axis [...]

    Mercury’s long ride through Gemini

    May 1st 2015 to July 8th 2015 Mercury will remain in Gemini for just over two months, this uncommonly long stay (it usually takes a month or little more for Mercury to move signs) is due to the three week retrograde period of the planet. Mercury is in its own sign in Gemini and, as a such, will be particularly active during the next two months. As it coasts through the sign it will make repeated and interesting aspects with four planets: Mercury in opposition to Saturn during the periods May 1st to 4th and June 8th to 17th This opposition could bring some serious thinking with it [...]

    Mercury Retrograde in Gemini

    May 18th 2015 to June 10th 2015 We’re due for another retrograde Mercury period, it will be in the Mutable Air sign of Gemini (both Gemini and Virgo are ruled by Mercury) and will station on May 18th 2015 at 13°06’ Gemini before starting its backward movement which will end on June 10th 2015 at 4°38’ Gemini. On May 4th it will enter its shadow period, the degrees of the sign that it will be back-tracking over. So the things that we have in mind during the period May 4th to May 18th should probably be the ones we need to re-think, re-evaluate, re-assess and anything other verb that [...]
