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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Thoughts, plans and emotions should now be disentangled
Mercury stations direct on 12th July at 5°29’ Cancer (antiscion 24°31’ Gemini).
Cancer, being a Water sign, is all about feelings and emotions and, being ruled by the Moon, how these fluctuate in time.
Mercury is a little out of sync in Cancer, finding some minor dignity only between 10-20° of the sign. Being a Water sign, Cancer is far too emotional for “all-in-my-head” Mercury.
Retrograde planets seemingly interfere with the normal ongoing flow of activities represented by that planet in the outer world.
The Pisces party continues…
On the 26th of March, Venus, the planet of love, romance, harmony and values, glides in to the sign of Pisces, the sign of its exaltation, ruled by Jupiter (traditional) and Neptune (modern).
Although the Sun has just left Pisces we still have Mercury, Neptune and now Venus there. However, until the 31st, when Mars enters Gemini, we will have a lack of the Air element in the skies which means that seeing the big picture and planning ahead could be difficult.
So we may be lost in a realm of fantasy, washed over by feelings of love and happiness, dreaming [...]
