me or we?—libra’s total lunar eclipse—april 4th

In less than 12 hours we have the Libra/Aries Full Moon at 14º.

the-platonic-lament-1894-Not only is it a Full Moon but, in answer to the Equinox/New Moon two weeks ago, also the day of an Eclipse—a Total Lunar this time ’round—rare and bloody.

And on an even larger scale, tomorrow’s lunation speaks to events we were managing this time last Spring and Fall—full circle and/or full steam ahead.

There are many factors in play with this one, most notably: Sun conjunct Uranus, Mercury conjunct South Node, Jupiter trine Sun and last but not least, Sun & Moon square Pluto—t-square!

If you are the possessor of planets or points between 10º-17º of the Cardinal signs (and the Fire or Fixed signs, too) then this could potentially be a big event for you, with 14º-15º Cancer a dumping ground for a majority of the energies here—yikes, if you are the lucky one!

For the collective—lots of Fire, tons of Cardinal. Passion and initiative.

Those intentions set during the middle of March are coming to a head or gaining momentum depending on the necessary timeframe.

This Full Moon is on the Aries/Libra axis and is an Eclipse, therefore the Moon’s Nodes are conjunct the event (nodes = our past that greatly affects our future). So, it is very much a dynamic of “space or intimacy”—“mine or yours”—“me or we”—“individuality or co-operation”—or better yet, a lovely balance somewhere in between!

Yes, the past weighs heavily, but Pluto is engaged to force an evolution. Hard, painful, gut wrenching teardown then an Uranian-fueled forward thrust—if one is needed. Maybe it works out the attachment is rock solid and tomorrow’s Eclipse merely fans the fires of pleasure.

Well either way, by Summer’s end, we’ll get to partake these delights for a fourth parlay.

As always, look to the houses brought to the fore for precisely how this manifests personally for you.

Happy Blood Moon, everyone!

october 10th—let the Crab do it

contemplation-039So, I am considering the transiting Sun and Venus to be conjunct, since she is within combust range at 4°.

That being said, if you have personal planets at 10°-15° of the Cardinal signs (especially Cancer) then I wanted to give a heads up to Libra Venus’ T-square with Capricorn Pluto and Aries Uranus.

This is initiating energy and it demands action.  Otherwise the tension may be downright unbearable.

As I said above, where Cancer resides in your chart is the ‘out’ of the situation, with the themes and requirements of the specific house needing attention.

Venus/Pluto/Uranus is throwing a microscope on our relationships, what and who we attract and our fundamental ways of relating in general. Unpredictable occurrences may be popping up and past issues, long dead, may be zombie walking back into our periphery.

Cancer is the answer. Given the specific archetype of the planet or point, the Crab’s house is most likely in need of some TLC—work it there and watch the other areas fall into step.

healing through inspiration, transformation and fortification: part 1

From July 27th to August 3rd, lovely transiting Venus in Cancer is the focus of 2 major aspect configurations.

Along with Venus, Chiron (healing), Uranus (inspiration), Pluto (transformation) and Saturn (fortification) are the dancers in this waltz and it just screams healing with a capital “H”!

In this 2 part series, I’m gonna break down the energies and show ya how you can put this mojo to good use.

Ok, let’s start from the top—Cancer wants security, predictability and comfort.  Whichever natal house cusp Cancer is, is where you will have these requirements, more than most other places.  For example, Cancer on the 7th house cusp wants a partner who is secure and provides security, is predictable and feels comfortable.  On the 3rd house cusp, the native would want day-to-day activities and a neighborhood environment that demonstrates security, predictability and comfort.  Even with no personal planets in Cancer, the house where Cancer resides is the area where you have the capability, and necessity, to nurture.
