full moon by midnight—jan 5th

Our first Full Moon of the new year occurs early Monday at almost precisely midnight EST.

4.2.7The preceding Sunday is packed with astrological vitality, making this Moon super-duper—so, let’s get started.

Venus and Mercury have both recently moved into Aquarius. They are now sextiling Saturn, new to Sagittarius. This adds plain good judgement and success to any plans made now—especially artistic or career-wise.

Saturday saw the Sun join Pluto at the 13º of Capricorn. They will remain intertwined for the duration of the Full Moon, while sextiling Pisces Chiron.

The Maverick adds fuel to the already volatile healing capabilities of Sol and the Lord of the Underworld, BUT with the gentleness and compassion only a Piscean planet (or asteroid) can provide.

As she moves into Cancer, Luna, herself, dances with Chiron in a free flowing trine. Water meets water to dissolve old scars and give fresh perspective.

Yes, Sunday night’s event could be a major point of catharsis for us, depending on the intentions set at the New Moon as well as individual house position—look to 12 to 14 degrees of the Cardinal signs.

As you know, the Full Moon occurs along the Capricorn/Cancer axis. Earth and Water. The Father and the Mother of the zodiac.

Themes of nurturing and protection will surface. Quite possibly old ghosts from childhood could arise—don’t forget Pluto is in the frey.

How do we provide for our inner child?

How do we protect those—people, ideas, projects—we have committed to nurture?

How are we building structures that nourish and shelter the children—metaphorical and otherwise—we have birthed and are seeing to maturation?

Do these structures allow for growth in all areas—physical, mental, spiritual, emotional? Or are they outdated, in need of overhaul?

As the natural rulers of the 4th and 10th Houses respectively, Cancer and Capricorn bring along fundamental questions of our place and security in the world. Issues of do or die.

Alright, and now to get to the meatiest part of this opposition.

2014 christmas week review

Well, I sincerely hope everyone had a magnificent Holiday.

Vintage-Old-Book-Illustration-016The weather here in the panhandle coupled with the festivities prevented me from posting, so now I’m just gonna give a brief recap of the energies of last week.

Needless to say, the big story is Saturn’s ingress from Scorpio to Sagittarius on the 23rd.

Huge!!!

I will post separately about that later today.

But Saturn was, of course, not the only happenings in the Heavens.

october 27th—waves crashing

Monday of next week is going to be an emotional one, folks.

Arthur-Rackham-Illustration-016Scorpio Sun conjunct Venus will trine Pisces Neptune and the watery abyss engulfs us in a glamorous mantle.

All the while, the transiting Sagittarius Moon revives the grand-Fire-trine with Leo Jupiter to form a Kite formation along the Libra/Aries Nodal Axis.

Remember, with the Nodal Axis as a player, collective lessons to bolster our future souls are at the forefront.

Fire and Water are the zodiac’s emoters and considering newly ingressed Sun and Venus in Scorpio, the dealings of the day will be serious as a heart attack.

Fiery, sentimental, Water works.

Can you say ‘passion’?

october 15th – 19th—tipping the scales

For the remainder of this week, we will see a pile up of planets in the relationship sign of Libra.

Edward-Robert-Hughes-Painting-022The Sun, Venus, Mercury Rx and the North Node are all conjunct within 5 degrees for a number of days.  Together, they form sextiles with Leo Jupiter and Sagittarius Mars.

If you have personal planets or points from 19°-25° of the Cardinal signs, this has your name written all over it.

This is the will to socialize and spend quality time with friends and loved ones.  It is animated conversations and pleasant evening get-togethers.

Optimistic and fun.

Gregarious and lively.

Brilliant costumes and autumnal attire. Deep, rich color and crisp backyard fires.

Swirling dances in the fallen leaves. Laughing and music. Ripe apples and fat pumpkins.

Any early Halloween parties scheduled now aren’t as sinister as they portend to be by October’s end.  No, these are charming Fall soirees full of allure and elegance.

Enjoy.

october 12th-14th—still smoldering

The Kite formation along the Libra/Aries Nodal Axis is still up in the heavens sans Aries Uranus and the Moon.

girlwithtreeman-029This subtraction takes the erratic emotional tinge off and allows the Libra Sun and Venus to be buoyed by the generous spirit of Mars and Jupiter.

When happy, there are none more gregarious than Leo and Sagittarius!

The precision of the Kite’s tip is aimed directly at the North Node at 19° Libra, bringing our past warring to the triumphant forward peace-time of Cardinal Air.

All the fiery initiative to balance and create the future lasts a short while longer. As Mars moves out of tight orb with the South Node on the 15th, the grand-Fire-trine slowly begins to dissipate.

Don’t panic though—all the intentions created and further fueled during last week’s Eclipse will manifest within the months to come.

This has simply been the planting.

october 8th—total lunar eclipse—bloody fire in the sky

Wednesday is this month’s Aries Full Moon.

And oh boy, is it a doozy.

For this post, I have compiled a rabbit hole of links to all things ECLIPSE—astronomy and astrology—as well as a couple points by me, tailored to this particular event.

Enjoy.

october 6th-8th—part 2: who’s got a lighter?

So much going on up above, it’s kinda ridiculous.

Read part 1: here.

With all the talk of the grand-Fire-trine and the eclipse at the Full Moon, I think it needs to be stressed that the major player in all this business is the Libra Sun.  He will be the focal planet of the Kite formation, he will be on the North Node of the Nodal Axis.  He will be absorbing energy from Venus, Jupiter, Mars and Uranus.  He is ground zero.

Whichever house 15° Libra occupies is YOUR ground zero.

Alright.
