This Full Moon is the second of the month of July this year. When a Full Moon occurs twice in the same month then the second one is called a “Blue Moon”. It’s a phenomenon that takes place every two or three years, thus the saying “Once in a blue moon” when something happens very rarely. Full Moons are said to bring completion to the matters started on the last New Moon.
Raven Kaldera in his book “Moon Phase Astrology” calls the Full Moon in Aquarius the “Friendship Moon” and it’s a great time to hang out with friends and spend time with the people you like and possibly [...]
A few months ago I started doing something that I’d been meaning to do for a couple of years: keep track of the Moon as it moved through the signs and houses of my natal chart on a daily basis during each month.
Although this involves jotting down the movement of the Moon on a daily basis as well as noting the mood or the matters you’re dealing with each day for at least a year in order to get an idea of how the day-to-day Moon placement affects you on a personal level, I’m already seeing a pattern of sorts emerging.
I have Mars-Sun tightly conjunct in Gemini which means I’ve a [...]
Venus, the planet of values, love, and finances, entered the sign of Leo on the 6th of June this year. Venus usually spends approximately 19 days in each sign but due to its 42-day retrograde period it will actually be in Leo until the 8th of October 2015 (except for a 12-day period from 19th to 31st July when it will be at 0° Virgo). The planet will backtrack from 0°45’ of Virgo to 14°27° of Leo during this period.
In Leo, Venus feels courted and pampered (after all Leo is the King and she is the Goddess!), she hates to be ignored and seeks attention, which isn’t difficult for her [...]
There will be a New Moon at 23°14’ in the sign of Cancer on the 16th of July. Do you have any planets or angles at or in aspect to that degree? Which house is the New Moon falling in in your chart?
According to Raven Kaldera in his book “Moon Phase Astrology” the New Moon in Cancer is known as the “Mother’s Daughter Moon”.
Under this moon we are invited to examine our relationships with our closest, especially bonds that are nurturing as for example the Mother/Daughter connection, with the intention of learning or understanding how we can differentiate this relationship, raise [...]
Chiron was discovered in 1977 between the orbits of Saturn and Uranus by C.T. Kowal and since it didn’t fit into the existing categories of celestial bodies at that time it has been re-classified several times and now has two definitions; as a minor planet and as a comet. We now know that it is part of the Centaurs in the Kuiper Belt, a huge zone of celestial matter surrounding our solar system.
Chiron in the Greek myth was the son of Kronos (Saturn) and a sea-nymph called Philyra, when he was conceived both parents were in their horse-form and thus Chiron came forth as a Centaur, [...]
