The Full Moon at 12 degrees Aries on October 5th, 2017 (exact 1:40 PM CST) is a high voltage one. Full Moons always oppose the Sun, so we’re talking about working the Aries-Libra axis here: “I” versus “We”, balanced consideration versus fired up decisive action. Both Aries and Libra are cardinal signs, initiative, pushy, bossy. Both the Sun in Libra and the Full Moon in Aries square Pluto at 16 degrees Capricorn, another cardinal sign; thus forming a configuration known as a cardinal T-square.

 

Cardinal T-squares create Continue reading “Full Moon In Aries October 5th, 2017: Sparks Fly!”

Full Moon In Pisces September 5th/6th, 2017: Out Of The Shadows

Full Moon Pisces September 5th 6th meaning

The Full Moon at 13 degrees Pisces of September 5th-6th (technically September 6th at 2:02 AM CST) is notable for being the first lunation to occur after the spectacular eclipse season of August, notably the New Moon Total Solar Eclipse of August 21st aka “The Great American Eclipse”. That eclipse took place at 28 degrees Leo; September 5th Mercury retrograde ends at 28 degrees Leo, “triggering” the eclipse at the same time we experience the first lunation since then. This looks to me like a lot of things hiding in the shadows recently will suddenly show their face.

 

Not that the things lurking in the background will be any easier to understand just because they are out in the open more. The Full Moon in Pisces would be potentially confusing and murky enough as is, but this Full Moon Continue reading “Full Moon In Pisces September 5th/6th, 2017: Out Of The Shadows”

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse In Aquarius: Visionaries On Fire!

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Aquarius Leo August 7th

 

Eclipses are always a bumpy ride. Full Moon Lunar Eclipses, while not as intense as New Moon Solar Eclipses, still tend to be agitating and disruptive, bringing long lasting changes. Full Moon Lunar Eclipses bring cycles to their conclusion or to their fulfillment, so as to allow the new beginnings that start under New Moon Solar Eclipses. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 15 degrees Aquarius of Monday, August 7th, 2017 (1:11 PM CST exact) is a highly exciteable, potentially volatile eclipse that challenges us to fight fire with cool reasoning.

Full Moon In Capricorn July 8th-9th, 2017: Unleashing The Hell Hounds

Sometimes you just look at a Full Moon and know why the word¬†lunacy¬†shares the same root word as lunation. The Full Moon at 17 degrees Capricorn of July 8th/9th (exact July 8th at 11:07 PM CST) is opening the gates of… somewhere dark, deep down below. The Full Moon is in fall in Capricorn, not feeling at home here anyway. The Sun at 17 Cancer will be widely conjunct fixed star Sirius (given how bright Sirius is, I’m generous with the orb here); the Full Moon will be tightly conjunct Pluto retrograde at 18 degrees Capricorn. Both Sun and Moon square Jupiter at 13 degrees Libra, forming a configuration known as a cardinal T-square. Layers and layers of energy and intensity. And you better believe it’s pissed off, rage filled energy with Mars included at 22 degrees Cancer, also in the sign of its fall and struggling to find healthy expression. Mars is conjunct fixed star Pollux, known for telling stories most would rather not hear (Julian Assange has Mercury conjunct Pollux, for example).
