SOLAR ECLIPSE – 15 FEBRUARY 2018: Photographic (You take pictures)

Solar Eclipse 15 February


This particular eclipse is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Fixed Cross (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) and who were born between April 15 – 19, August 18 – 22, November 18 – 22 and February 13 – 17. Also to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 25° – 29° degrees of these Signs.


GO TO ECLIPSE GUIDE

The partial Solar Eclipse on February the 15th is the second eclipse to take place in 2018. It succeeds the total Lunar Eclipse that happened two weeks ago and it completes the current eclipse period that lasts until the coming summer.

It is an eclipse that takes place on the Aquarius-Leo axis, and more specifically at 27 ° 07′ degrees of the Aquarius Sign.

Eclipses are powerful astrological events and affect us all without exception, some of us more and some of us less.

A solar eclipse usually acts as a major catalyst and tends to bring about events that are definitive or irreversible. These events may have a more positive or a more negative character, depending on the Houses that the eclipse is activating on our natal chart, as well as the planets and points with which the eclipse is making an aspect.

What is certain is that the events that the eclipse brings about, are decisive events, events that are experienced quite intensely, and more importantly, events through which information is revealed to us.  Critical information, that has been elusive prior to the eclipse and that is of importance for our gradual evolution.

The partial Solar Eclipse on February the 15th can be said to belong to the class of eclipses that function positively since the majority of the aspects formed on the eclipse chart are sextiles and trines.

It is an eclipse that focuses on thoughts, ideas, and realizations.

Mercury, the planet of cognitive function, is placed in Aquarius, the Sign of intellect and dissemination of ideas. Mercury is conjunct the two Lights ready to make the recording. Uranus from Aries, in a sextile aspect with the Sun and the Moon, operates like the flash of the camera. The eclipse itself is the opening and the closing of the shutter.

Focus…

Click…

Flash…

Imprint

and there it is, the seed, the birth of the original, the inspirational concept. Suddenly… unexpectedly… a “Eureka”,  as the one shouted by Archimedes.


It is written deep inside the core of the February Solar Eclipse to make us formulate concepts, to build aspirations and to make us wanting to share and communicate.


This very process in itself is capable and powerful enough to produce significant results within the next six months, which, among others, may relate to:

  • Expressing ourselves  more collectively, something that brings opportunities for new collaborations or new friendships that will have a significant role in our future steps.
  • Us being recognized and accepted to join wider social groups.
  • New ideas and innovative projects that mature within us. Now is the proper time to initiate them, having them as our vision and our goal in our next efforts.
  • Talents we have always had, and which now can become again an expression of our unique individuality through participation in creative and collaborative groups.
  • The launching of a new web site or the strengthening of the visibility and marketing of our work on social networks or the internet.
  • Clearly stating to our other half that it is important that we feel free within our relationship, defending our independence and our individuality.
  • Favorable developments regarding our siblings and their efforts in the field of social care activities or in politics.
  • Realizing our great need for independence from the relationship we are currently in, which will eventually bring the very end of this relationship.
  • The brewing of ideas on writing or with important developments concerning book publishing or website creation, especially if the Eclipse falls on the 9th House of our natal chart.

Solar Eclipse 15 February chart

The Solar Eclipse in February, in addition to the aspects of Uranus and Mercury that we have mentioned, creates its opportunities with three more aspects.

Saturn in Capricorn in sextile to Venus in Pisces makes us devote to what we like and work with pleasure in order to achieve our dreams.

Jupiter from Scorpio in sextile to Pluto in Capricorn empowers our psychic energy reserves and makes us strong and effective in successfully pursuing our goals.

Mars from Sagittarius is simultaneously in a trine and sextile aspect to the Lunar Nodes. This is an important aspect that acts out the thematic of this Eclipse, since it helps us to act with enthusiasm, and based on our personal truth,  to move towards the path that this eclipse is paving.

This is an area where we also need to be a little cautious, due to the square aspect that Mars is making to Neptune, so that we are not get caught in the illusory shine of our own vanity.

What else needs attention?

The square that Jupiter is making to both the Eclipse (Sun conjunct Moon), and to Mercury, is an aspect that has to be managed. It is an aspect that calls us to assimilate and communicate our new ideas and perceptions, without exaggerations, while avoiding at the same time any overwhelming or grandiose plans.

 

The solar eclipse of February the 15th is a fertile eclipse.

In a way it continues on the events of the Solar Eclipse that we had last summer and concludes the current cycle of eclipses. A cycle that will last for six months, up until the difficult eclipses in July and August.

Lunar Eclipse 31 January

LUNAR ECLIPSE – 31 JANUARY 2018: Venus Variations

Lunar Eclipse 31 January


This particular eclipse is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Fixed Cross (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) and who were born between April 29 to May 2, August 1- 5, November 2-6 and January 29 to February 2. Also to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 9° – 13° degrees of these Signs.

The Total Lunar Eclipse, which takes place on January the 31st is the first of five total eclipses, two Lunar and three Solar ones, that will take place within 2018.

It is an eclipse that occurs on the Leo – Aquarius axis and more specifically at 11° 37 ‘of the Leo Sign.

Eclipses are powerful astrological events and affect us all without exception, some of us more some of us less.

The duration of the eclipse’s influence in our lives has to do mainly with the way that the chart of the eclipse is integrated with our personal horoscope. The eclipse theme activates the Houses on which it falls on our natal chart. The eclipse is related to sudden realizations as well as emotional and psychological situations, that relate to the activated Houses, and that are coming to a peak around the eclipse period.

In general, one can say that the expression of these conditions manifests within a date range that begins four weeks before the eclipse and can reach up to six months after until the next corresponding eclipse, but without this being an absolute.

What astrologically characterizes this Lunar Eclipse on January the 31st, is the conjunction of Venus with the South Node and the eclipse axis. This means that planet Venus has a special significance and colors the Eclipse, something that could among others signal:

  • The beginning for some of you of a new relationship, especially if Venus falls in the 5th house of your natal chart.
  • The ending of a relationship, because our other “half” does not understand the importance we give to matters of self-expression or cannot accept our desire to be more sociable and friendly as a pair as well as individuals.
  • For men it can bring about psychological and emotional stress associated with a woman. Lover, partner, wife, daughter or mother.
  • For women it may signal intense emotional pressure, respectively, from their mother or family, as well as gynecological issues or emotional stress that relates to their beauty and aesthetic choices.
  • A period of accentuated socializing in which we will have critical meetings and contacts that will eventually play a decisive role for the issues related to the Houses that the eclipse triggers in our natal chart.
  • Significant developments in relationships, especially love relationships, that relate to people from the past that we have somehow maintained in our lives or who are now reappear.
  • Exposure to the public and recognition through professional circles and acquaintances or through our artistic works, which will ultimately be very important for furthering our professional careers.
  • Gradual settling of financial issues that started to be of concern in February 2017.

The list may go on with several other possible manifestations of the impact that this Total Lunar Eclipse may have on each of us, but I think that it is now clear how strong and catalytic, not only this one, but all eclipses are in astrological interpretation.

Lunar Eclipse January 31 chart

This Eclipse has a karmic, or if you prefer, a learning character which is emphasized by Venus being conjunct to the Nodal axis, and we could say that the January the 31stLunar Eclipse holds a lesson for us.

It is an eclipse that requires from us to emotionally adjust to the situations that it will bring to the fore and that also requires special attention for two reasons.

Neptune is making an inconjunct aspect with the Moon, which implies a lot of idealization and hypersensitivity in how we feel, and Venus is in a square aspect with Jupiter, so in any of the possible scenarios, we must be careful not to be greedy or vain and to also be prudent not to waste our money and feelings reserves, because we mistakenly think that everything is ideal or convenient.

Fortunately, Jupiter is very helpful at the same time, since, apart from the square that it makes with Venus, is also in a sextile aspect with Pluto and in a trine aspect with Chiron.

Jupiter through these harmonic aspects gives us the opportunity to find the necessary psychological energy reserves to face what may have wounded us in the past and to heal.

Jupiter makes us strong and effective to cope with the challenges and reversals that this eclipse may easily bring about if we do not act quickly and reasonably. (Jupiter inconjunct Uranus and Mars sextile Mercury).

The lunar eclipse of January 31 is a critical but not a difficult eclipse that presents both opportunities and challenges and prepares us psychologically for the Solar Eclipse of February 15th.

Capricorn New Moon

CAPRICORN NEW MOON – 17 JANUARY 2018: Prepare for climbing

Capricorn New Moon


The New Moon takes place in 26°and 57’of the Sign of Capricorn. It affects the Cardinal Signs (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra) that are born towards the end of the third decan or those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 25° -29° degrees of these Signs.


GET YOUR READING!

Each New Moon is a beginning, and the New Moon that takes place in Capricorn is the first for 2018.

It is a New Moon that marks in the most indicative way the beginning of a period in which emphasis will be placed exactly on what this earthly and cardinal Sign symbolizes.

Patience, Work, Achievements, Success, Status.

Whenever the New Moon takes place in the Sign of Capricorn, this is the best time to think about what we want to achieve. It invites us to set goals, to put things down in order and to begin actions and work.

This New Moon in particular is the energy of the Capricorn Sign amplified to its maximum. This happens because it occurs in one of the rare astrological cases where, besides the Sun and Moon, four more planets are also in Capricorn, participating in two sets of conjunct aspects.

Saturn and Mercury form the first conjunction on one side, Pluto is in between, and the triplet of Sun, Moon and Venus are together in another conjunction that takes place within the last degrees of the Sign.

All this gathering of planets in the sign of Capricorn, along with the fact that the ruler of the New Moon is Saturn that has returned to his Sign after 29 years, reinforces the materialistic and practical element of this lunation.

It is a New Moon that can be particularly conducive to us making serious beginnings, committing to resolutions and to implementing our professional and business plans, all favored within the next two weeks.

Capricorn New Moon

This New Moon is conjunct planet Venus in an aspect that favors socializing and partnerships. Especially favored are projects related to aesthetics, style and elegance. It is also an aspect that makes us value success, respect and money and working to achieve them.

There are also the positive sextile aspects that the Lights are making with Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio, because on the one hand they help our psychological drive by uncovering clearly our goals within us, while on the other hand they make us decisive in how we are going to realize them.

Mercury in conjunction with Saturn gives mature and strategic thinking, as long as our mind deals with organizational challenges and planning, but on the other hand it is an aspect that needs attention, because if we have not clarified our goals it can cause hesitation or even anxiety that will arise as a result of feeling inadequate due to a lack of pursuits.

We also need to pay particular attention to the square aspects that Uranus makes with the Sun, Moon and Venus. These are the most difficult aspects of the chart. Everything we want to achieve will take time, perseverance and patience but Uranus wants it now.

The New Moon period is the right time for our plans, but at the same time we feel the need these plans to go ahead and to move quickly. Impatience, a tendency to react spasmodically, or to act impulsively and without the necessary preparation may appear. If this is the case then we should restrict ourselves because otherwise our ventures will turn out completely the opposite from what we expected.

This is a New Moon that is indeed perfect to set the basis on which we will move forward, but in order to do this, we first:

  • must be aware of our responsibilities,
  • have to understand our limitations, so as
  • to set pragmatic goals, and then
  • to act with responsibility, schedule, patience and perseverance.

 

I wish to all of you a pleasant New Moon that will be the ideal start for your personal pursuits.

and embrace its promise for renewal.

Full Moon in Cancer

FULL MOON IN CANCER – 2 JANUARY 2018: Tender is the night

Full Moon in Cancer


The Full Moon takes place in the 11th degree of the Sign of Cancer. It affects the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) that are born near the end of the 1st decan or near the start of the 2nd decan or those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the degrees 9°- 13° of these Signs.


GET YOUR READING!

Full Moon in Cancer is a motherly soft moon that will shine brightly on the night of January the 1st and towards the early morning hours of January the 2nd.

The Moon from her home Sign of Cancer will be exactly opposite the Sun in Capricorn making this the first Full Moon for 2018.

This is a Full Moon and as usual our feelings will be intense, lit up by the Sun in Capricorn, but still, they will be gentle and kind.

The Moon in Cancer brings out our sweetest emotions. Care, tenderness, the need to nourish our loved ones, deep intuition, memories reaching from the past, are some of the possible manifestations of its lunar energy.

A Full Moon that takes places in the Sign of Cancer asks us to find a balance. On one side we may need to be accomplished and respected while on the other our emotional voice whispers softly of our need to feel safe and loved.

This particular Full Moon intensifies this tension even more, since Venus conjunct the Sun is also opposing the Moon. This means that we want to have a respectful social life, with success and money (Sun conjunct Venus in Capricorn), but deep down, our root need, is to share affection and to really care for someone.


This Full Moon is posing to us a dilemma very similar to the one that the hero in the “Great Gatsby”, the masterpiece novel of F. Scott Fitzgerald, was having.

Success and money were great, but they were nothing more than the means to just partying, while he secretly longed for his past love, for the tender kiss and the family that may have been.


This full moon may bring such a longing.

Hopefully we have laughed and we have partied during the Christmas season, we have enjoyed home and family and we will continue to do so for some days before we are to go again on the rat race, to duty and responsibility, to effort and hard work.

Some of us may on the other hand may be facing the New Year without having a work, or a lover or the means to party and for those, the need to be nourished is much stronger and also practical as well as psychological.

Such concerns will be constant reminders now that Saturn has entered Capricorn and demands results.

  • How are we to ease the emotional effect of the hardships of the present?
  • How are we to accept the longing for the past?
  • How to come to grips with such contradicting feelings?

These are some of the questions that this Full Moon rises.

Full Moon in Cancer

There are some answers to these questions, or at least answers that suffice for the next fourteen days that lead up to the New Moon, because this unique Full Moon shows a way to reconcile the contradictions.

The Full Moon in Cancer intertwines the two Lights in a special astrological aspect pattern that is called “The Kite”. This pattern involves Moon, Mars and Neptune together in a Grand watery Trine, while at the same time, the Sun and Venus conjunction is the focal point of the pattern, with the two planets being simultaneously sextile to Mars and Neptune.

These all create a safety net around the full moon antithesis and help us integrate the opposition with the best possible way.

The emotional trine in the water Signs is giving us inspired feelings, deep empathy, self-confidence and motivated action and the sextiles bring about opportunities as we charmingly and boldly act to achieve our ambitions. We feel that we can express our creativity and we can dare to dream. We are assisted by intuition.


As we intuitively understand the answers come and we can start 2018 with commitments and resolutions that are the combined results of matured will and gentle emotions.


  • Yes we may need to be accomplished but we must realize that any achievement is void without putting our heart to it.
  • Yes it is easy to accept a longing for the past as long as we understand that this past led to the achievements of today.
  • We can feel less burdened by emotional hardships as long as we understand that love is not only romance but it needs work in order to materialize.
  • Yes we can patiently endure not having enough money or the professional status if we understand that real success is to care and to be cared for.

These are some of the answers that this Full Moon is wisely giving us and wise we will be to hold on to these answers for the rest of the New Year.

I wish everyone a fulfilling 2018!

SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON – 18 DECEMBER 2017: Cosmopolitan spark


The New Moon takes place in the 26th degree of the Sign of Sagittarius. It affects the Mutable Signs (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo) as well as Leo and Aries Signs that are born in the third decan or those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 26th degree of these Signs.


GET YOUR READING!

Moon joins the Sun on the 18th of December and this union, as with every New Moon, marks a new realization. The New Moon period is the right time to begin something since we have a fresh mood and we feel invigorated.

This New Moon in particular works refreshingly and has a positive overtone since it occurs in the Sign of Sagittarius, an amicable and jovial Sign, and is mostly accompanied by positive aspects.

Sagittarius is an optimistic Sign that has open horizons and broadened perception.

A New Moon in Sagittarius gives an appetite for exploration to our soul and to our spirit and makes us to eagerly looking forward for the new prospects that lay ahead. It brings us the desire to be open and true with ourselves and honest with others, since sincerity and straightforwardness are basic Sagittarius traits.

After the deep psychological digging of the previous New Moon in Scorpio, and the difficult efforts to communicate what we have unearthed with the Full Moon in Gemini, this New Moon at last brings, immediacy, renewal and revitalization.

We now are optimistic, and with Venus in conjunction with the New Moon, we come out not only with a positive aura but also with spontaneous shine and charisma. We know our value and we are in harmony with our feelings.  We feel likable and we are popular. We are tender, jovially friendly, exciting social, and most important craving for new experiences.


This New Moon is a cosmopolitan spark that becomes our inner trigger

for starting something new with enthusiasm.


Next to the two Lights, and also conjunct with Venus, Saturn materializes this new externalization of ourselves adding to it the necessary seriousness and lessening any exaggeration. We take ourselves seriously.

New relationships that we may make shall not be frivolous, and in any beginning or new resolution that we shall commit ourselves to, we are going have acknowledgement and respect for our efforts from our partners and close relationships.

Another positive characteristic of this New Moon is that Uranus from within the Sign of Aries is making a trine aspect with all the planets I have already mentioned.

This gives us the air and freedom for self-expression. Uranus trine with Venus brings pleasant changes in our social and love life and surprises us with opportunities for making new connections. These may start unconventionally or in original settings but there is a great chance they will evolve for a long term.

Jupiter and Mars are conjunct Scorpio and so every action and initiative, indispensable constituents for any new beginning, are favored. Add to this the fact that Neptune is making a trine with both planets and we can talk about inspired action with creativity.

This New Moon in Sagittarius favors new endeavors but at the same time we have to be cautious to moderate and slow down its exaggerated enthusiasm. Especially more in this case, where Jupiter, the ruling planet of enthusiastic Sagittarius, is making a square aspect to the Moon's Nodes. So we have to pay extra attention to excess and overreacting.

Another thing we must have in mind is that Mercury will still be retrograde for some days after the New Moon while at the same time it makes a square aspect with Neptune. This means we should think before taking action and be careful of our spontaneity so as to avoid mistakes, wrong judgments and / or unnecessary idealizations.

This New Moon on December 18th is the last lunation for 2017. And yes for some of you, depending on where it fells on your personal chart, it may it be an ideal opportunity to set in motion circumstances that would lead to an expansive 2018.

Sure thing is that it promises a festive season full of excitement and adventure!

I wish everyone a happy and creative holiday season & Merry Christmas!

Full Moon in Gemini 2017

FULL MOON IN GEMINI – 3 DECEMBER 2017: Uncertain feelings

Full Moon in Gemini takes place on December 3rd as the Moon, from within the Sign of Gemini, will shine bright in the night sky.  This Full Moon is intense and really difficult in regards to our emotions and relations.

When the moon is in the Sign of Gemini it makes us want to communicate how we feel.  This is all the more the case with this Full Moon, since it takes place after the New Moon in Scorpio a few days earlier. Then, have brought our urges to the surface, we have comprehended our feelings and our needs, and we have realized their power and dynamism.

Now we want to share them.

Opposite the Moon, the Sun in Sagittarius, seeks the truth and the distilled essence of all things. It makes us want to express our truth. We know what we need or we think that we know, but whichever the case we have a great need to express it.


“I feel… I understand… I communicate… 

You understand me… We both become wiser.”


How easy does this sound!

However, it will be something very difficult in the case of this Full Moon that takes place within a grid of intense, hard aspects and planetary energies.

Neptune, at the time of the Full Moon, is both square to the Moon and the Sun, with the aspect being almost accurate and therefore experienced more intensely. It will be wise under this aspect that we should first make sure what we are feeling and what we are seeking to communicate to the other persons, either in family, towards loved ones or professionally.

I wrote a little further above: “We know what we need or we think that we know“.

This “we think” describes exactly the problem, because the aspects Neptune makes contribute to us having emotional illusions, idealized preconceptions, to feel guilt for our very feelings or to project all these negatives on to our partners and become completely disillusioned by them.

Gemini Full Moon 2017 chart

The square aspect of Neptune with the Sun may also bring fatigue and weakness to both moral and body and the Full Moon by its nature brings intense emotional charging.

As if this was not enough, our need to communicate is made even more difficult, by the fact that Moon in Gemini is ruled by Mercury, who has turned retrograde a few hours prior the Fool Moon. Not only retrograde but conjunct morose Saturn can really turn thoughts to introspection and gloominess.

So we may feel the inner tension to express how we feel and why. We may have the need to share our personal truth. But within the above landscape it seems useless and it is almost certain that by doing so, will only result in misinterpretation and misunderstandings.

It is thus important to remain patient.  We better be cautious and avoid verbal conflicts and tensions, since the scenery is even more electrified by the Mars-Uranus opposition that culminates two days before the Full Moon and still remains active for a few days afterwards. This is a very dangerous aspect that may ignite disputes out of the blue.

What we need to do:

  • Every effort of communication is useful to be attempted with the detachment that Gemini has, being an air Sign.
  • Emotions we want to express or judgements that we make, we should better first examine how realistic they may be.
  • We should try to see the other side with the wisdom of Sagittarius.
  • Yes we should express our wants and needs, but we are called upon to do this without emotional involvement, objectively and by avoiding preconceptions and doctrines.

This is the difficult balance that this Full Moon is calling us to find for the next weeks, as it affects us all depending on where it fells on our personal chart.

Scorpio New Moon

SCORPIO NEW MOON – 18 NOVEMBER 2017: Empowerment & Belief

Scorpio New Moon

Scorpio New Moon takes place on November 18th, just a few days after Venus made a conjunction with Jupiter within the same Sign.

Every New Moon is a promise and a beginning and especially when it occurs in Scorpio, then it is a new cycle of discovery of our hidden power.

This New Moon comes after the concerns that were raised by the Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th two weeks ago. These were concerns relating to our sense of inner value and the degree of the trust we can inspire to others. With the New Moon in Scorpio, this cycle of insecurities is complete, and we begin to realize the power and the depth of our inner emotional power.

This happens because this New Moon gets its color from the zodiac's most powerful psychological Sign, and with Jupiter being also in Scorpio, this awareness comes as a result of a substantial introspection that gradually reveals our reserves in power.

The favorable aspects monopolize in the chart of the New Moon, with the trine between Jupiter and Neptune closing and with Venus, having made its conjunction with Jupiter, now approaching the two Lights.

Inspiration, optimism, hope, self-confidence, increased popularity, harmonic relationships, even new relationships and luck, are among the energies that color the landscape in which the New Moon takes place.

Within such a spectrum of positive energy, even the square formed by Mars and Pluto, which is the only tense aspect of the chart, is expressed in a milder manner.  It manifests more as incentive, increased self-confidence and sustained stamina and much less than explosive nerve or sexual tension.

The male (Sun) and the female (Moon) are united in a tight embrace within the Sign of passion. However, in this New Moon, any dark Scorpio elements - which encapsulate emotions of ceaseless intensity that "drown" more romantic expression, are completely softened within the energetic landscape I have described above.


The scene is not one of two lovers in a dark room experiencing ultimate intensity. It is more like a room not totally dark, but selectively lit by the glow-in-the dark reflections of the favorable astrological aspects. The red beams are the Mars - Pluto square that is power and desire. Reflections within the silence of the night and the lovers are near sharing secrets.


That is exactly how this New Moon in Scorpio feels.

Yes, because besides belief in ourselves through the awareness of our strength and the value that we can inspire to others, this New Moon also brings about the essential communication in our relationships. Precisely what it has been lacking, the previous weeks and in doing so, it help us to renew the trust between us and the important others.

So remember, when you will start to feel the energy of this lunation, be sure that it will result in empowerment and belief in yourself.


Find out where the New Moon falls in your chart

and embrace its promise for renewal.
