FULL MOON IN PISCES – 26 AUGUST 2018: True to You

Full Moon in Pisces 26 August 2018


The Full Moon takes place at 03°and 12’ of the Sign of Pisces. It strongly affects Pisces and Virgo Signs and also Gemini and Sagittarius Signs which are born in the first decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 01° -05° degrees of the Mutable Cross. The energy of this Full Moon in Pisces is also channeled to the Earth Signs and affects Taurus and Capricorn Signs born near the first days.

A beneficial full moon takes place on August the 26th.

It is a full moon that soothes us after the difficult eclipses that have preceded it, refreshing our psychic reserves. It presents an ideal opportunity for us to be inspired and to be practical at the same time, setting the bases that will assist us in the next period.

The Moon is in the dreamy and psychic Sign of Pisces and brings to the fore emotions of romantic nostalgia. The soul asks for a fleeing away from the desert of the real, feelings are fluid and the dream of escaping or the need for the osmosis with the transcendental, swell within us.

Opposite, the Sun in the zodiac Sign of Virgo, grounds illusions and seeks something more practical than the cloudy and vague Piscean landscape. It seems as if the Sun is declaring: “Dreams have a tendency of not coming true”. Yes that is true, at least if dreams remain theoretical and are not accompanied by work, meticulous craftsmanship, attention and emphasis in detail.

This contrast between, us serving a vision without losing our faith on the one hand, and being constantly inspired by the tedious reality and avoiding tendencies to flee in the dream-world on the other, is the theme of every Full Moon in Pisces.

Full Moon in Pisces 26 August 2018

 

With this particular Full Moon on the 26th of August, this balance is easily achieved, since this archetypal contrast, as expressed by the polarity of the Sun and Moon, is the backbone of a very favorable aspect pattern that in astrology is called “Kite”.

Although the chart of this Full Moon in Pisces is actually very complex -since at least four basic aspect patterns can be found within the aspects’ formations, the favorable trines and sextiles that constitute the Kite are dominant, making this formation the basic element of our interpretation.

A Great Trine between Sun, Saturn and Uranus in the Earth Signs, the Kite’s main body, is grounding the transcendental idealism of the Moon in Pisces – situated at the tail of the Kite, and sets the foundations for materializing our dream in a practical level, by adhering to the following:

We express ourselves by serving (Virgo) our ideal (Pisces), but we do it having complete consciousness (Sun) of what is our personal truth (Uranus), and what is which will make us feel really safe (Sun trine to Uranus in Taurus).

At the same time, we accept, that whichever our own truth is, it entails responsibilities (Saturn).

It is a truth that, in order to serve our dream (Moon in Pisces), should be accompanied by goals (Moon sextile Saturn in Capricorn), allow independent expression (Moon sextile Uranus in Taurus) and most importantly, give us the necessary self-discipline (Sun Trine to Saturn) to carry out the demands it presents.


An example to illustrate the beneficial effect that this Full Moon can have on a self-discovery level, is that of a married woman who feels the need to escape in a romantic journey with her lover.

The psychological pressure caused by the practical difficulties of making the hidden and craving journey a reality, -since it confronts with the reactions of her husband or her parents that spoil her dream, is solved as she faces her own personal truth.

Does she wants to escape just to live an adventure or her personal truth is that she really does not want to be married anymore and the lover is the excuse for the ending her marriage?

Being aware of her truth shows what the next practical steps are.

If it is the first case, means that it would be good for her to accept that all this is just a dream of fleeing and to begin working on her marriage with responsibility and self-discipline, while expressing at the same time her individual nature by claiming her personal space and freedom. (Saturn trine to Uranus as part of the Kite pattern).

If, on the other hand, her truth is the second case, then she must find the self-discipline to communicate how she really feels to spouse and parents and to accept the consequences by divorcing, and fulfilling her dream for a new state of being, free, and responsibly independent.


The above example is of course schematic and in no way encourages anyone to divorce.

It is an example to demonstrate how complex and interrelated processes this Full Moon in Pisces brings. Beginning with the dream and through the formation of the “Kite”, it eventually creates new situations and renews us with responsibility and freedom of action.

It is a Full Moon that is beneficial for all of us, depending on where it falls on our personal horoscope, as it combines

  • inspiration,
  • vision,
  • a sense of responsibility and
  • awareness of our truth.

Full Moon in Pisces 26 August 2018

In addition to the Kite aspect pattern, the dreamy trine between Jupiter and Neptune and the square aspect between Venus and Pluto, give even more emotional depth to this full moon.

The square aspect between Venus and Pluto will bring to the surface psychological tensions that will eventually prove liberating, as with the trine of Jupiter to Neptune, the very possibility of our dream becoming a reality, will fill our lives us with meaning.

 

This is a strongly emotional Full Moon in Pisces, which combines the elements of Earth and Water in the best possible way.

It is sensitive and dreamy, and still, it is simultaneously the appropriate time for us to work out in a practical manner, our relationships, our partnerships, our aspirations and our dreams.

 

I wish to everyone a fulfilling Full Moon.

Full Moon in Capricorn 2018

FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN – 28 JUNE 2018: Macbeth

Full Moon in Capricorn 2018


The Full Moon takes place at 06°and 28’ of the Sign of Capricorn. It strongly affects Capricorn and Cancer Signs and also Aries and Libra Signs which are born in the first decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 04° -08° degrees of the Cardinal Cross.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

A Full Moon occurs on the 28th of June at the Sign of Capricorn.

This is the last full moon before the eclipses period that starts on the 13th of July when the new moon will be a Solar Eclipse. After this first eclipse two more will follow, one Lunar and again one Solar, making us trudge through A Long Hot Summer.

The upcoming eclipses period is presenting many astrological challenges and gradually reaches a climax in rising tension.

In a sense, ironical, paradoxical or cosmic, the Full Moon in Capricorn, that happens right before the eclipses period, can be seen as an alert, as a last call to discipline and mature expression of the self, qualities that are required so as we better navigate through the demanding eclipses’ landscape.


Macbeth, Act 2, Scene 1

There is a famous line in Shakespeare as Macbeth, firmly resolved and on his way to kill King Duncan, hears the sound of the castle bell in the night and says as if speaking to his victim:

“I go, and it is done. The bell invites me.

Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell, which summons thee to heaven or to hell”.


The June 2018 Full Moon in Capricorn is having the same sombre and serious mood as the bell that Macbeth hears. The bell knells and depending on our reactions our path will be more or less difficult.

 

Full Moon in Capricorn 2018

 

Every Full Moon in Capricorn brings a culmination on issues relating to the two Signs where the Sun and the Moon are placed.

Sun in Cancer is the provider of nutrition, is caring, and wants to attend to one’s emotions. We are tender and soft.

Moon in Capricorn needs acknowledgement through accomplishments. Emotions, with Moon in Capricorn, are kept reserved, since the practicalities necessary for the achievement of a goal, are more important to unnecessary and humdrum  sentimental drama.

This archetypal conflict can be felt in various aspects of our everyday lives. Professional advancement versus time with the family, emotional tenderness versus coldness and alienation in relationships, worldly status versus inner comfort.

With this specific Full Moon in Capricorn there is an additional weight that fells on the Moon.

Saturn is making a tight conjunction with the Moon and at the same time is Moon’s dispositor planet. This double Saturnian influence on the Moon is the sombre bell that is heard.

Let’s hear carefully, because this Full Moon is taking us to one of two paths:

  • One path leads to emotional pressure and disappointments out of our inability to cope with professional or relationship demands. It brings emotional detachment, coldness and unexpressed emotions. It is ambition for success irresponsible to others needs. – This path is the dark night of the soul.
  • The other path leads to integrity and maturity. It requires patience and hard work, especially relating to how we respond to the emotional needs of beloved others. It is building protection boundaries for ourselves and the family and caring for others first. – This path is ambition supported by meaningful relationships.

Is it easy to move along the second path?

Saturn is retrograde. We can use its introspective affect to better set our boundaries against external pressures. Or to understand where we need to relax and let go with the flow of things instead of trying to organize and control everything.

The Moon is making a trine with Uranus and this can give us the necessary excitement to deflect gloominess. Anything new or unusual is welcomed.

More importantly Saturn, the main player in this “Preamble” of the eclipses’ long hot summer, is also in a trine aspect to Uranus.

This means that we can manage sudden or unexpected events and conduct the necessary changes so as to smoothly integrate them to existing our structures.

So, the answer to the question posed is: It may not be easy, but it can be done!

 

Under this Full Moon in Capricorn we must hear our inner bell and become wise.

It is a test, a preparatory arena for building character and patience so as we can safely move onward through the eclipses period.

 

This Full Moon in Capricorn is a call for calculated decisions and disciplined emotions.

This may bring an initial gloominess, but out of the test, something positive will surely come.

 

I wish to everyone a fulfilling Full Moon.

New Moon in Gemini June 2018

GEMINI NEW MOON – 13 JUNE 2018: The Message is Crystal Clear

New Moon in Gemini May 2018


The New Moon takes place in 22°and 44’ of the intellectual Sign of Gemini. It strongly affects Gemini and Sagittarius Signs and also Virgo and Pisces Signs which are born in the third decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 20° -24° degrees of the Mutable Cross.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

A rather quiet and at the same time eloquent New Moon takes places on the night of the 13th of June. This ambivalent state of affairs that this New Moon is having, quite fitting to the Gemini Sign (!), is the result of two things.

Let me explain.

This New Moon in Gemini is happening as the Sun and the Moon are meeting at 22 degrees of the Sign and again start another synodic cycle. The Sun in astrology symbolizes our very existence, our consciousness, our self – expression. The Moon is symbolic of our feelings, our psyche, our intuition and the subconscious.

Gemini is a Sign that makes information known, it communicates. Rather fitting it does something more than communicating. Gemini exchanges.

Verbal, mental, written, digital or physical bits of information are given and others are received and Gemini through this process, as a mutual Sign, reaches out towards others and understands them and itself.

Within this mode of information processing, the Sun, our very existence, is aware of the facts and the pros and cons of the situation. Our need, with the Moon in Gemini, is to express ourselves and our feelings and this is the proper time to do it since we have realized both facts and needs.

Every New Moon is such a realization and when the New Moon happens in the Sign of Gemini this realization becomes a message.

 

This New Moon is the process of conceiving of an idea,

of thoughts formed, of opinions shared.

It is the start of a new cycle of communicating with important others.


 

Gemini New Moon

 

The very unique characteristic of this New Moon in Gemini is that, if we look at the chart, there are no major aspects formed with the New Moon (the Sun and the Moon).

One exception to this, might be the waxing square of the Sun to Neptune, an aspect that has reached precision one week before the New Moon, but which now is separating, while still having a lessened effect.

So we may have to be a little cautious so as to shape our message free of any misconceptions or idealizations. We have to ponder on any new ideas with our heart free of muddled feelings and with our sense of purpose firm and not swayed.

But apart from this separating aspect, this New Moon is clear of other interventions.

This lack of other aspects is very important, because the message that this New Moon is having for every one of us, is not colored by any other planet.


This New Moon becomes a crystal clear message. 

 

A message within, that we clearly hear, understand in an intuitive way and then clearly articulate.  

A message that is the solely result of the coming together of our intellect (Sun in Gemini) with our spoken heart (Moon in Gemini).

 

A message free of other interferences.


This intuitive character of the process of both forming the message and of communicating it, is the result of yet another astrological factor.

The ruler of the New Moon in Gemini is planet Mercury, placed at 2° of Cancer.

Through its place in this sensitive and intuitive water Sign, Mercury operates with emotional intelligence and with increased care in what and how something is conveyed.

Mercury in Cancer brings heightened emotional context to our message while at the same time infuses it with sensitivity.


Words are chosen carefully, the speech is soft,

we do care and we also take care what we are saying and how we express our opinions.


Mercury is also in a sextile aspect to Uranus in Taurus, an aspect that bestows freshness and ingenuity to all intellectual processes and brings practical insights.

Mercury ruling the New Moon and its sextile with Uranus is the amplifying quality in the simplicity of this New Moon. The New Moon’s message is simple and clear, but at the same time is so filled with emotional awareness and has a caring quality, that speaks volumes.

 

That is why this New Moon in Gemini is a contradiction as all Geminis and is at the same time both eloquent in its simplicity and quiet in its clearness.

Because it is a New Moon that does not have to shout to make a point or to be heard.

Marshall McLuhan was a famous media theory professor who has coined an expression that is very descriptive of this New Moon.

“The medium is the message” – Marshall McLuhan

 

Under this New Moon every one of us becomes a medium transmitting one’s very essence and since the message is crystal clear, this New Moon in Gemini becomes

the key message of our own selves.

Full Moon in Sagittarius

FULL MOON IN SAGITTARIUS – 29 MAY 2018: Starry Night

Full Moon in Sagittarius


The Full Moon takes place at 08°and 10’ of the Sign of Sagittarius. It strongly affects Sagittarius and Gemini Signs and also Virgo and Pisces Signs which are born in the first decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 06° -10° degrees of the Mutable Cross.

Especially with this particular Full Moon, the Grand Trine between Venus, Jupiter and Neptune affects those who have planets or horoscope points, between 10°-18° of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

An adventurous Full Moon is taking place on 29th of May, a moon that is infusing us with positive energy.

At last, after a period of intense moons that have set critical milestones and have marked developmental changes for many of us, now the sky is clear again.

We can now once more stand under the moonlight, feel the night breeze and marvel at the awesome display above our head. We can breathe deep, inhale the fresh air in the stillness of the night, as the twinkling stars above entice us again in faraway journeys.

The positive energy of this Full Moon is a calling to the most expanding part of our psyche. The part that likes to explore and discover, a calling to a childish urge that says, “run, jump the fence, go down this road, find where it leads you!”.

This is the nature of the Sagittarius, the Sign where the Moon is placed in this Full Moon. Excitement for what’s new.

The exciting feeling of this Full Moon in Sagittarius comes naturally and is the long-awaited release of the tension felt during the previous month.


This Full Moon is a positive culmination

that brings fulfilling emotions.


It is not unusual when the Full Moon occurs in the jovial and expansive Sign of Sagittarius, to have a positive energy but with this particular Full Moon there are some factors that amplify its positive effect.

The Sun and the Moon polarity, that happens when we have a Full Moon, usually brings overwhelming emotions or tension. This is not the case with this Full Moon, because it is a polarity aided by the aspects that the two Luminaries make with planet Mars in Aquarius.

The Sun in Gemini is in a trine aspect to Mars, and the Moon is in a sextile aspect with the red planet. These simultaneous harmonious aspects ease the sentimental tension and present an outlet for it, through action.

We feel energetic and invigorated, confident and bold, we are driven by being unique and letting the world know how we feel.

There is no conflict between our need for a personal vision and knowing our  very facts. We have examined the facts, we have made the moves, and we have shifted our stance. Now we may begin forming a new vision or to start making an already held vision, a reality. With this Full Moon we know where we stand and we know that we are ready to move on.


This Full Moon set us on a journey to find our inner truth

and to have the courage to express it.


There are no other major aspects made by the two Lights.

Just this Wedge Pattern that denotes, reforming action (Mars in Aquarius), invoked by true feelings (Mars in Aquarius sextile Moon in Sagittarius), that ease the confident expression of our desires (Mars in Aquarius trine Sun in Gemini).

Yes, we stand under the stars and we savor the night air, we comprehend the big picture, and feeling ready to jump on the first train to the next thrill.

It’s such an energizing Full Moon!

 

The second reason for the fulfilling energy that this Full Moon is having is the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Venus.

This marvelous Grand Trine in the Water Signs emphasizes our most positive emotional qualities.

Jupiter trine Neptune brings vision, dreams, ethical belief, compassion and spiritual awareness. This qualities are compatible with the need for a true vision that the Moon in Sagittarius expresses and since Jupiter rules the Moon, we are all the more easily attuned to such feelings.

Jupiter trine Venus attracts good fortune, brings joy and pleasure, good-natured feelings, appreciation for love and art, and socializing. In this positive mood our excitement is easily aroused.

Neptune trine Venus is the love for the ideal, the idealization of love, the daydream fantasy of spiritual realms. It is through this extremely sensitive and inspiring mindset that our senses tingle, we fill optimistic and ready to embark on a new adventure.


This full moon is an urge to travel outwards… 

but in reality is a journey towards the within.


 

It is a powerful time for emotional release and for opening ourselves to new possibilities.

This is the time to ask ourselves some important questions and have the big vision to find the answers that can make real changes.

May 2018 New Moon in Taurus

TAURUS NEW MOON – 15 MAY 2018: Shake at the Foundations

May 2018 New Moon in Taurus


The New Moon takes place in 24°and 36’ of the Earth Sign of Taurus. It strongly affects Taurus and Scorpio Signs and also Aquarius and Leo Signs which are born in the third decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 22° -26° degrees of the Fixed Cross.

Especially with this particular New Moon, the square aspect between Mars and Uranus affects those who have planets or horoscope points at 29° of Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) or 0° of the Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpions, Aquarius).


GET YOUR OWN READING!

A very original New Moon is taking place in the Sign of Taurus on May 15th.

The astrological symbolism of the New Moon has to do with the start of a new cycle that begins as two different principles, that of our conscious will (symbolized by the Sun), and that of our unconscious drives (symbolized by the Moon), meet together.

This merging of the two principles marks the perfect time to begin things as the one will drive the other.

When the New Moon happens in the Sign of Taurus the time is ideal for growing on a solid foundation, for planting the seed for the future, for firmly setting out building your security. For example enterprising endeavors are favored when the New Moon is in Taurus.

The Sign is grounded. Firm and stolid in its calmness.

Taurus. Calm, peace and harmony right?  Very nice, very nice, very nice…

…but NOT with this New Moon.

 

This is the most atypical Taurus New Moon that we shall encounter for a long, long time.

 


 

The chart of this New Moon in Taurus is very similar to the chart of an astrological event of great importance that happens less than four hours after this lunation. If you look at the chart you can observe that Uranus is at 29°59’, upon the very last minute of the very last degree of the Sign of Aries.

This New Moon coincides with the entrance of Uranus, the planet of change and de-stabilization into the Sign of Taurus.

How fitting the new moon symbolism now becomes. A new period of Uranus in Taurus begins as this New Moon happens.

So, there goes the stability of this New Moon…

 

Uranus is not only with one foot inside the Taurean territory, but also it receives a very tight square from Mars placed at 29°43’ of the Sign of Capricorn.

The exact of this aspect happens the next day after the new moon, with the two planets changing Signs simultaneously, and forming the square from 00°02′ degrees of Taurus & Aquarius.

This is first of the three successive square aspects that the two planets will be forming, with the second one culminating on August the 2nd and the third on September the 19th.

How fitting is the new moon symbolism again. A cycle of three squares between Mars and Uranus, in Aquarius – Taurus respectively, begins as this New Moon happens.

This electrifying square is associated with instability, impulsiveness, rushed excitement, reckless action, sudden jolted reactions, revolutionary drive, assertion that shocks, boldness and impatience, bursts of anger, accident proneness, tension and ego drive.

So, there goes the calmness of this New Moon…

 

One more entrance.

Mars enters Aquarius a few hours after this New Moon. From Aquarius, a Sign ruled by Uranus, and at the same time in a square aspect with Uranus, Mars brings once more the Uranian – Aquarian motif into the earth Sign of Taurus.

So, there goes the firm ground of this New Moon….

 

The chart of the New Moon has six planets in earth Signs but the energy that Uranus brings is intense. The square with Mars is tight, the degrees are critical, the Uranian motif is repeated.

This New Moon is not about planting seeds and waiting patiently for them to grow.

It is not about building security.


The May 2018 New Moon in Taurus is about us

 beginning to prepare for the upcoming changes.

It is a trailer of what is to come as the cycle of eclipses in the Leo – Aquarius axis is approaching.

It is the pre-seismic activity before the foundational shake.


The balance has shifted, a new paradigm shift is forming in the following months and this New Moon in Taurus is the introductory chapter of the “Manual of Change”.

Some of the questions that this New Moon in Taurus poses are:

  • How can we maintain inner peace within a de-stabilizing period?
  • How can we build and enhance on our material resources while the very landscape is changing?
  • How we can align needs and will, in an ingenious and innovative approach that does not undermine what we have up to now held as familiar giving us a sense of security?
  • How to tap on creativity, emotional stamina and stay focused with will power towards our goals -all traits of the chart of this New Moon but shadowed by the intensity of the Uranus and Mars energy?

The characteristics of the Taurus Sign hold the answers to these and other similar questions that may arise:

  • Amidst the Uranian shakes, we try to remain calm in our center, open and ready to embrace change.
  • We try to remain a placid Taurus and to not act with the impulsiveness of the Mars – Uranus square.
  • We sense the electrifying vibes and absorb the surge of energy with laid back detachment.
  • We understand that the new security is to dare to deconstruct the familiar and then rebuilt it in a new form.

Such is the nature of the processes that this New Moon sets forth for us. And if they may sound vague, abstract or too difficult to attain, please have in mind that,

…what was once a shocking modernity, it is today’s classic art.

Full Moon in Scorpio 2018

FULL MOON IN SCORPIO – 30 APRIL 2018: The Balance Shifts

Full Moon in Scorpio 2018


The Full Moon takes place at 09° 38’ of the Sign of Scorpio. It strongly affects Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius Signs, which are born near the end of the 1st decan or near the start of the 2nd decan, as well as those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the degrees 7°- 11° of the Fixed cross.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

Prelude

Since the Aries New Moon two weeks ago, the moon has traveled half its cycle. Sign by Sign, it moved into the Sign of Scorpio and now shines, late at night, reflecting the light from the Sun that is in the Sign of Taurus.

This reflection is a culmination. It reflects a turning point in a process that started with the New Moon in Aries, a process that awakened us and placed us at the center of developments.

The previous New Moon was the impulse that pushed us, and now the Full Moon in Scorpio is our emotional response to a need that is deeply ingrained in the fabric of our soul.  The need for a meaningful connection that transforms. It is us desiring rebirth.

All full moons in Scorpio awake a desire for transformation, but with this Full Moon the need is intense and we can now make the difference.


Now we tip the scales. With this Full Moon in Scorpio the shift is made and everything is set in motion.


Act 1 – Balance Shift

There are three strong astrological indicators that give to this particular Full Moon a fated or as I more prefer to call it, evolutionary nature.

Moon from within the 9°38’ degrees of Scorpio opposes the Sun in Taurus and at the same time, both lights are in a square aspect to the Lunar Nodes at 10°30’ degrees of the Leo – Aquarius axis. This is the current eclipses’ axis and actually, if one checks, this Full Moon is not only squaring the nodes but it is also square the total Lunar Eclipse of January the 31st.

This cosmic coincidence connects the Lunar Eclipse with this Full Moon and means that emotional issues manifested right after the January eclipse, things that have been brewing under the surface all this time, have now reached a critical point. We can no longer balance between material stability (Taurus) and emotional security (Scorpio). Now it is the time that the balance shifts towards the one or the other, marking the beginning of a new period in our life.

 

Act 2 – Manifestation

Saturn is retrograde and, from the 9th degree of Capricorn, is forming a tight trine – sextile aspect to the Full Moon in Scorpio.

This second factor gives this Full Moon a serious nature. Saturn, the great teacher, gives us an opportunity to not only discipline the intense emotions of this Full Moon but also eases the manifestation of our will and the achievement of personal goals.

What Saturn does is that it makes a reality out of the tension represented by this full moon and with its retrograde movement, a Karmic feeling to what is being unfolding for us, is emphasized once more.

 

Act 3 – Developmental Patterns

The third astrological factor that denotes development, is the Trapeze aspect pattern that is formed on the chart of this Full Moon.

This is a combined aspect pattern formed by two Learning Triangles, each one in opposite direction to the other. The Trapeze has at its corners, Saturn, the Moon, the North Node, and Mercury.

This trapeze pattern, in its remarkable combination of multiple aspects, suggests a sequence of cyclical learning processes that result in personal development.

 

Finale

All these suggest one thing.

We cannot escape the unavoidable culmination and the making of important decisions.

The fact that between the two lights, the Moon is the one that forms the most aspects means that it is what we feel that will eventually make all the difference under this Scorpionic Full Moon.

It is our emotions that will set the motion and under this perspective it is fortunate that the Moon conjuncts Jupiter and is making a trine aspect to Neptune, because we are inspired.

We intuitively trust that after some initial unrest something good will turn out.

 

Epilogue

This Full Moon in Scorpio is a critical time especially for those having personal planets close to the 9th degree of the fixed cross. Depending on the houses where it falls on our personal chart it may mean:

  • Issues that first appeared at the end of January have now reached a culmination point.
  • Moving to a new house as a result of long felt emotional turmoil with family members.
  • Changes within marital dynamics result in actions that set us on a completely new course.
  • For some women, the realization that emotional intimacy matters more than material security becomes an achieved certainty.
  • For some men, passionate feelings for a woman, that were put aside in favor of serenity, reawaken and the game is still on.

One thing is sure…however it may affect us, this is a Full Moon that will be strongly felt.

ARIES NEW MOON – 16 APRIL 2018: At the center of unfolding events.

New Moon Aries April 2018


The New Moon takes place in 26°and 02’ of the Sign of Aries. It strongly affects Aries and Libra Signs and also Capricorn and Cancer Signs which are born towards the end of the third decan, as well as those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 24° -28° degrees of the Cardinal Cross.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

The New Moon of April takes place on Sunday night.

Each New Moon is the beginning of a new cycle and when it is a New Moon that takes place in the impulsive, active, dynamic and fully energetic Aries Sign, it is more than just a beginning. It works more like a spontaneous realization that is born within and is pushing us to act, directly and dynamically.

This particular New Moon in Aries, has this character of a sudden awareness, for one more reason, since the Sun and the Moon are conjunct with the planet Uranus.


This New Moon is an awakening.

It is an impulse that pushes us into action.

Unpredictable and unconventional but reinvigorating at the same time.


It marks during the next two weeks, a period where our deep needs for change come to the fore and motivate us.

Possible manifestations of this New Moon in Aries in aspect with the planet Uranus are:

  • Issues related to our ego and our independence are now urgent.
  • We want to be freed from people or situations that hold us back.
  • We feel that the time has come to lay the base for more psychological independence and we are ready to defend our choices.
  • We express our emotional needs without having any further thoughts about how others will get it.
  • We are loaded with nerve and excitement for the imminent renewal.
  • We want the new to come, filled with impatience and without the slightest intention to compromise.
  • We rejuvenate relationships and express our love in a provocative way.

On the chart of this New Moon in Aries, we see that the Sun and the Moon are in a square aspect to planet Pluto.

The rush with which we want to act is pressing us all the more. We are deeply in need of breaking into the new, and in our hurry to do it quickly we become self-compulsive.

But really we do not need to feel pressed at all, or to force others, because Pluto – in addition to the square aspect with the two Lights – is also on a sextile aspect to Jupiter which means that the seed of this New Moon, contains in its core, the very potential for the desired empowerment and transformation.

New Moon Aries April 2018

Mars, the ruler of Aries, is the dispositor of the Moon and the Sun, and from within the Sign of Capricorn dictates that we must kick-start our goals in a practical and organized manner.

Mars is also making a sextile aspect to both Neptune and Jupiter, and thus sets the foundation for our actions to be inspired and moral and eventually creative and beneficial. In the latter additional helps comes from the trine aspect that the red planet is making to Venus.


There is not one square or opposition aspect that prevents Mars, this New Moon’s ruler, from starting the action.

But is everything so easy, really?

Not exactly, because the New Moon in Aries hides a trap that needs attention.


Mercury is stationary at the time of the New Moon and ready to turn direct. This, on one hand is positive, because our thoughts will clear and we will claim our renewal after the insightful retrospect.

On the other hand, Mercury approaches Saturn, which on April 17th,  within less than two days after New Moon, turns retrograde on the 9th degree of the Sign of Capricorn.

This means that in anything this New Moon pushes us to change, in whatever we aim to claim for ourselves, for any initiatives and decisions we take, we have to be very careful.

At a personal level, it is very likely that the New Moon’s initial bust will be gradually tempered as the days go by, and in the end our thoughts will become conservative which may result in us not taking the necessary initiatives.

At the relationships level, we have to be very careful, how we communicate our image and what we want, since misunderstandings, communication difficulties and delays in what we have planned will tend to appear more frequently, as Mercury and Saturn are approaching each other and as we are heading towards the Full Moon on April the 30th.

However, this New Moon in Aries, and depending on the way it aligns to the personal horoscope of each one of us, is important.

It is a New Moon that, despite its unconventional nature and its pressing for immediate change, and regardless of how direct or not our response will be, it does place us actively at the center of unfolding events.

Events that begin with us, and for us.
