Me? Or should I say we?
The Full Moon will occur at 09°05’ Leo (antiscion 20°55’ Taurus). Leo is a Fixed, Fire sign. In traditional astrology Leo governs the 5th house, so this Full Moon operates on the 5th-11th house axis (Leo-Aquarius): the things we create for our own personal satisfaction (including our children) vs our group efforts, the artist vs the scientist, the autocrat vs the democrat etc.
The lunation chart itself will have a heavy Earth/Air elemental sense to it (4 planets in each element) together with a feeling of being stuck (7 planets in Fixed signs). Practical [...]
The New Moon will occur at 23°13’ Capricorn (antiscion 6°37’ Sagittarius) and will be OOB.
The Moon's transit through the declinations will cycle between nominal highs and extreme highs over a period of about 18 years. The last cycle of extreme highs ended in 2011. The present cycle of extreme highs began in April 2020.*
Capricorn is a Cardinal, Earth sign, so persons with planets or angles of the natal chart at 21-26° of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra will be particularly affected by this lunation.
New Moons are notoriously the best moment to set fresh [...]
Abstract ideas or unconventional truths?
In Aquarius, a sign co-ruled by Saturn (traditional) and Uranus (modern), Mercury is even more thirsty for knowledge, always in search of new ideas and technologies but ready to reject or even abandon them as soon as new (Uranus) becomes normal (Saturn).
Mercury in Aquarius will give us new visions, make us aware of new possibilities, allow us to envision an ideal world or society, which might be great as a theory, but much less so as a practicality.
Aquarius is a fixed Air sign so here Mercury is at home in the mind and intellect but less so [...]
forget love and peace….
The first of six New Moons at 23° of their relative signs.
This New Moon will take place at 23°53’ Libra (antiscion 6°07’ Pisces) and will be squaring Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, now all direct, in Capricorn, it will also still be in orb of an opposition to Mars retrograde in Aries, thus forming a Cardinal T-square aspect. The lunation is also in tight separating orb to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of January again re-activating this degree and its consequences.
Libra brings to mind the usual Venus topics with a very harmonious nuance. So, we could [...]
….the soul-searching is over, time to transform!
On the 4th of October Pluto will station direct at 22°29’ Capricorn (antiscion 7° 31’ Sagittarius) after just over 5 months of being retrograde. This is the exact degree of last January’s Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn thus bringing back themes of that period (it was when the first news of what was to become the Covid-19 pandemic reached public attention and now many countries are having a resurgence of the disease with contagion rates soaring).
Persons with planets or angles between 18-24° of the Cardinal signs (Aries, [...]
All I'm askin', is for a little respect when you get home (just a little bit)”*
After a long stay in the homely sign of Cancer due to its retrograde period, Mercury now enters flamboyant Leo for a brief two-week stay.
In Leo, all planets want to be respected according to their nature. Mercury in Leo wants to be respected for his opinions and views and in desiring this, self-confidence often turns into bravado and presumption.
During this brief stay in Leo, Mercury will make the following aspects:
10 August: square Uranus in Taurus (10°40’) – both in in Fixed signs this could[...]
Another chapter of the never-ending story
The New Moon will occur at 28°26’ Cancer (antiscion 1°34° Gemini) in a partile opposition to retrograde Saturn in Capricorn. This is the second New Moon in Cancer this season, these “double New Moons” occur approximately every 29 months or so and are also called “Black Moons” by some astrologers. Both the Moon and Saturn are in their own sign and thus strong but each in the detriment of the other…working together to find a compromise could end up badly since they seem to be partners in crime rather than strong planets aimed at [...]
the planet of width enters the sign of depth…from Air to Water, from love to lust
After spending a year in the Cardinal, Air sign of Libra dispensing love, harmony and justice, and perhaps feeling wronged himself, Jupiter now enters the murky quagmire of the Fixed, Water sign Scorpio. Moving from the extrovert Air to the introvert Water element. Here diamonds are surely to be found, but only by those who are prepared to dig deep and expose the real from the fake.
Jupiter, or Zeus as the ancient Greeks knew him, was the King of the Olympian gods. He was omniscient, knowing and seeing [...]
