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.

Pisces New Moon 17 March 2018

PISCES NEW MOON – 17 MARCH 2018: Faith & Conviction

Pisces New Moon 17 March 2018


The New Moon takes place in 26°and 53’of the Sign of Pisces. It strongly affects Virgo and Pisces Signs and also Gemini and Sagittarius 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 mutable cross.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

Each New Moon is a beginning. A moment in the cosmic time where the conscious and the unconscious merge together, and this momentary unity becomes the perfect timing for us to align our needs with our will.

This New Moon falls in the Sign of Pisces. Within here, needs are transcendental and “to be” is “to dream”. It is a New Moon that carries themes of ideal love, poetry, compassion, fantasy, martyrdom and sacrifice, all characteristics of the mutable water Sign.

It is a New Moon that wants to answer the dilemma posed by the Full Moon in Virgo that took place in March the 2nd. How we serve the ideal and be practical at the same time?  How we work so as to make the ideal a realization?

At first glance, it seems easy to believe in ideals and to hold on to dreams, as the conjunction of Sun and Moon in Pisces inspires our heart and soul. To be inspired is the first step towards making something true and this New Moon sets in gentle motion, gentle emotions.

At the same time Mars from Sagittarius is in a square aspect to both the Sun and the Moon. Let’s ponder for a moment…

Do we rush to realize what we want? Are we competing ourselves or others undeservedly? Or is it maybe that we feel that we have to spontaneously act (Mars in Sagittarius) instead of passively listening to our intuitive inner voice (Moon in Pisces)?

Pisces New Moon

Chiron close by the two Lights at 28°, is emphasizing on the martyred Piscean motive but its influence is one of healing for ourselves and significant others.

Chiron may work miracles as an instrument of healing by us expressing through art, or by letting our senses absorb art, poetry and music. More importantly, healing comes by showing to others our intensely felt compassion. All these are qualities that may very easily manifest in our psyche under this Piscean New Moon.

There is a reason why we are feeling the influence of Chiron in a positive manner, though Chiron makes a hard aspect to Mars.

The square aspect uncovers our insecurity and may bring a remembrance of inadequacy. This disillusioning may result in a temporary lack of our conviction. But as this is a separating aspect, with Mars moving away from the Centaur, so the whole Mars influence is lessened to quite an extent.

At the same time, Jupiter in its retrograde motion through the Sign of Scorpio, is approaching the Lunation and the Centaur, making a trine aspect to all three bodies and in this way it amplifies Chiron’s healing qualities.

The combined result of all these aspects taken together, is that as the Lunation dream begins to manifest, as our hopes begin to arise, as we feel inspired and compassionate, some feelings of restlessness, a sense of us not being able to cope with the situation may appear.

Jupiter in its retrograde motion makes us reconsider our core values and questions our ethical stance.

But Jupiter the great benefic brings us wisdom in the guise of a warning.

Only by delving deep into our incentives (Jupiter in Scorpio retrograde) and by remaining true to our ideal, it is that we will surpass any inadequacies and then the inflow of generous feelings will inspire us to move on.


So this New Moon may not be as dreamy as it seems at first glance. It has a quality of testing the truth within us and strengthening our conviction. 

This Piscean lunation does not bring the “dream” into reality.

What it does is that it plants a seed of faith in our hearts and along with this faith it requires our patience.

It sets in motion a healing process and makes us strong.


This is the gift of this Pisces New Moon and it is a practical gift, in the sense that it starts a cycle of renewed faith, that will accompany us during the difficult period that the next Full Moon in Libra brings.

Solar Eclipse 15 February

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.

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 OWN 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.

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 OWN 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!

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.

Libra New Moon

LIBRA NEW MOON – 19 OCTOBER 2017: A wind stirs up the Lake

Libra New Moon 2017

Luna Lake. It is a lake, calm and serene. The picture is of you and of me. We stand on the lake shore. The wind blows gently. It makes ripples on the surface of the water and tangles our hair.

It is I and You.

Suddenly a strong wind stirs up the lake. Lightning. A sudden rain, cool and refreshing.  We run for shelter. Our hearts beat loud, with joy. Under the big tree top we stop. We are waiting for the rain to stop. We sit and talk. We get along. The rain stops. We look at each other. We may be wet, but for some reason we now know that everything is possible, everything is old and is new. We get up and go. But now, we are walking together.

It is We.”

 


I have chosen a poetic manner suitable to the harmonious sign of Libra, to describe with an imagery the energy of the New Moon that takes place on October the 19th.

It is a New Moon that is stirring up the waters, and for some of us, we could even say that it is stirring up waters that have been stagnant and still.

This New Moon occurs at Libra, the sign of relationships and harmony. Exactly opposite the New Moon, Uranus in Aries actively energises us. It brings the sudden and the unexpected when we least anticipate it. This might initially cause us excitement, agitation, or even annoy us. But this awakening is exactly what we really need, so as to better realise where we stand with ourselves and others.

This New Moon totally refreshes existing relationships and partnerships while at the same time brings many opportunities for new ones to be born.


But the New Moon does not only affect relationships and partnerships,  because through our renewed relations it also allows us to find and reach a new balance, inward and outward, and thus benefit other areas of our lives, as well.


Which areas these may be, it has to do with where the New Moon operates in your personal horoscope.

Although initially the energy of the New Moon is electrifying, it will eventually have positive results since it is in conjunction with Jupiter.

This process of reset and renewal may come suddenly but it will be smooth. This is because Saturn assists Uranus in its opposition to the New Moon, controls any excessive impulses, makes us adjust to the new, and gives us the necessary calmness with which to face the changes.

So now is the best time to let ourselves open to new possibilities and to be excited about the new.

Most importantly, from the time of the New Moon and for the next 14 days we will be able to greatly capitalise on the potential of our existing relationships and many opportunities are going to present themselves through cooperation, conciliation and mutual understanding.

 


Find out where the New Moon falls in your chart

and embrace its promise for renewal.
