FULL MOON IN LIBRA 19 APRIL 2019: The Last Hard Mile

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 19 APRIL 2019


The Full Moon takes place at 29°and 06’ of the Libra Sign. It strongly affects Aries and Libra Signs and also Cancer and Capricorn Signs which are born at the last days, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 27° – 29° degrees of the Cardinal Cross.

The proximity of the Full Moon to the first degrees of the Fixed Cross affects also Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius persons that are born in the first 2 days of their Sign, or those hose having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 00° – 02° degrees of the Fixed Cross.


 

For those of you that feel that these last two weeks was like walking on a muddy terrain, with each step sinking deeper, this Full Moon marks the hard last mile. The last period of trudging through, towards breaking free again, able to spur into limitless action.

But in order to feel free again, one has to find the courage to make the necessary breaks. Freedom costs, and freedom is in its essence an internal psychological state.

That is the difficulty and the crisis that this full moon in Libra presents.

Have you noticed? We are having a Full Moon in Libra, again!

The last Full Moon took place on 21st of March 2019 and it was at 00°09’ of the Sign, with this one now happening at 29°06’. The previous one marked a pivotal period that now comes to completion with this full moon.

The previous, with its timing and emphasis on the critical 0° marked the urge for something new that had to emerge out of the crisis, while this one, is the ending of the beginning.

 

This Full Moon in Libra is the last labor pains before the birth of our individual expression breaks free. A breaking free that is astrologically symbolized by the participation of planet Uranus into the Full Moon.

Uranus is in a tight conjunction with the Sun in Aries. Our very self, our will, has to be expressed with dynamism and zeal. We want to renew ourselves and to make changes that are the result of our unique and original expression. This Moon calls for self-realization, (Sun conjunct Uranus in Aries.)

We have to attain this, because this is the last step (29° anaretic degree) prior to regaining our inner value, our tranquility and our peace of mind, (symbolized by Taurus the next Sign after the 29° Aries).

But this is not easy because with the Sun in the last degree of Aries we find ourselves in a difficult situation. If we assert ourselves too much and we have a reactive behavior, it is quite possible to unbalance our relationships in an irrevocable way.

The Moon in Libra seeks balance, diplomacy and compromise. It wants harmony, aesthetics and sharing of feelings with others. But if the important others do not agree with our choices, feelings tend to erupt (Uranus opposition Moon). Tactfulness, patience and thoughtfulness towards others says the heart but how to do it and being ourselves at the same time?

This hesitancy (Libra) to acτ (Aries), is about to end.

The muddling started with Mercury retrograde in Pisces. Α retrogradation that started from 29° Pisces, another anaretic degree, that marked both a slowness in progress and a guilty retrospection. Thoughts were not clear, over idealized and daydream prevailed over practicality.

This is about to end.

Mercury moved direct again on March 28th , but still moving within its shadow and within the Sign of Pisces for the past weeks, gave lack of clarity and a lack of determination, while at the same time we were expending ourselves with too much of a Piscean compassion and understanding of others.

This is about to end.

 

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 19 APRIL 2019

The chart is difficult.

The two Lights are still in a wide separating T-Square with Pluto. The psychological pressure must have been great. The sentimental manipulation from others must have been exhausting.

This too, is about to end.

 

Mercury will enter Aries on the 17th of April, two days before the Full Moon. At last our thinking will be cleared. Entering Aries, Mercury will come into mutual reception with Mars in Gemini.

At last! Thinking and action will become one. Decisiveness will come, and most important we shall find the courage to speak our mind.

This is the tricky part of this Full Moon in Libra and where cautiousness is needed. We have to be us, speak us, and move on from the sentimental wallow and into clear words. But under Uranus rebellious energy we have to be cautious. Do not give in. Do not compromise but also do not erupt in anger or arguments.

One more astrological reason that says that we have to be cautious, is the fact that two days after the full moon Mars will enter into out of bounds declination, contra- parallel to Jupiter. Unbridled, uncontrolled, excessive and in a high-energy state.

 

Picture the movement of the planets.

Two days before this Full Moon that wants us not to compromise and brings a crisis in the balance of relationships, we will feel the need to speak our mind and to move on, while two days after the full moon, our energy will be so high that it will be difficult to control.

There’s a saying, “to make an omelette you have to crack a few eggs”.

That is what this Full Moon wants from us.

To have the courage to confront oppositions in relationships, and to express our individuality even if we have to argue. We have to slowly and cautiously move on, with clear head and free of unnecessary sentimentalism. We have to be prepared for sudden eruptions and arguments, but at the same time to use all confrontation in the most constructive way. To rebuild and renew our relationships through them.

We just have to break some eggs… without spilling everything onto others faces.

Be prepared, be firm.

We need just a small push to get out of the muddy terrain and after the small crisis that this Full Moon brings, all will be renewed under the Sun.

NEW MOON IN ARIES 2019

NEW MOON IN ARIES 5 APRIL 2019: How Soon Is Now?

NEW MOON IN ARIES 2019


The New Moon takes place at 15°17’ of the Sign of Aries. It mainly affects Aries and Libra Signs and also Cancer and Capricorn Signs which are born in the second decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 13° -17° degrees of the Cardinal Cross.


There is a lyric that says… “And when you want to live how do you start, where you go, who you need to know?”.

This is in a sense the question, that the New Moon in Aries which takes place on April the 5th, poses for each one of us. Because from one hand it is a very good opportunity for starts, but on the other hand it presents us with some serious challenges.

But let’s take first things first, as this is an Aries New Moon.


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


Each New Moon is the beginning of a new cycle, and when it is a New Moon that takes place in the pioneering, dynamic, impulsive, and self-expressive Aries Sign, it is more than just a new chapter.

Now, we have the first moon of the new Astrological Year which has commenced on the day of the Spring Equinox.

This New Moon in Aries is Chapter Number One.

We ourselves are number one under this New Moon. We feel that now is the time for a full expression of our own identity. We can be bold and we may rush, we want things done, and done our own way.

But the problem with this particular New Moon in Aries is that our expression and feelings are held in check.

The only major aspect that the two Lights make, is that of an applying square to the planet Saturn in Capricorn. What a pity, that our passionate intensity, our impulsive disposition, our dynamism to act are challenged.

We aim for preeminence and Saturn speaks of moderation. We feel an urgency to act quickly and Saturn says that we need to have patience. We try to be ourselves and someone else wants us to behave differently.

Saturn here is the very reality that does not allow us to be or to do what we want and in the way we want it.

It may be responsibilities that delay our plans. It may be practical difficulties that make us hesitant to accept a new job offer. It may be a father figure or a person of authority that oppose our actions.

Even worse it may be our own fears, our own pessimism, or just a sense of “This is too hard” that place obstacles in our path…

NEW MOON IN ARIES APRIL 5 2019

This New Moon in Aries is also disposited by planet Mars. Once more emphasizing the New Moon’s hold back motif, Mars is in a sesquiquadrate aspect to Saturn.

Sesquiquadrates are subtle challenges that have a learning character, but unlike squares they cannot be easily felt or understood. They require a passing of time till the conflict they represent surfaces and is eventually confronted.

The sesquiquadrate aspect between Mars and Saturn may denote that things follow a very slow process as they move, and the more they delay the more frustrated we become.

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 impatient.

The more impatient we get, the more we may feel the consequences of the Mercury square Jupiter aspect, resulting in us saying more than needed, seeing the big picture but avoiding minor details, or promising more that we can deliver.

Patience is needed…

Fortunately,

Mercury sextile Saturn, an aspect that comes exact two days after the New Moon, make us to communicate in a responsible manner and clears our thinking.

Mercury sextile Pluto, focuses our concentration and gives persuasive power.

These two aspects help to balance the fog and the ambiguity created from the prolonged conjunction of Mercury and Neptune in Pisces, something that clouded our vision with retro nostalgia during the days when Mercury was retrograde.

We have to work on the good expression of these two planets. For example instead of arguing with the father figure we may speak to him with compassion. Βy sharing our dream with him, to inspire him, and make him our ally and not our opposer.

Let us be cautious then because this New Moon, though promising of a new beginning is also demanding, frustrating and oppressive.

Let us be prudent. We have to master Saturn in order to overcome this New Moon’s sombre and challenging character so as to fully to exploit its potential for a new start.

Let us attune with Neptune’s higher vibrations to inspire ourselves and avoid the pitfalls of disillusionment before we even begin.

The energy of Neptune-Mercury conjunction in Pisces combined with the New Moon squaring Saturn in Capricorn that characterizes the chart, reminds me of something a dear friend wrote.


“We decorate ourselves with lots of lies to endure everyday life and forget that by doing it, we cower our bright and strong soul who wants to be expressed with joy, intensity and passion!

The biggest lie we say to ourselves is “I cannot”. And we say so often that in the end it becomes part of our truth.


So when we want to live how do we start, where we go, who we need to know?

 

We start with patience, we go within and till the end and we need to know no one else but our own self.

 

P.S. The mundane expression of the New Moon that activates the eclipse of January the 6th will be difficult and we may witness some serious events in the next days. But this is another story…

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 21 MARCH 2019

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 21 MARCH 2019: Every You and Every Me

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 21 MARCH 2019


The Full Moon takes place at 00°and 09’ of the Libra Sign. It strongly affects Aries and Libra Signs and also Cancer and Capricorn Signs which are born in the first days, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 00° – 02° degrees of the Cardinal Cross.

The proximity of the Full Moon to the last degrees of the Mutable Cross affects also Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces persons that are born in the last 2 days of their Sign, or those hose having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 28°-29° degrees of the Mutable Cross


A Full Moon in Libra will be visible on the night sky on the 20th towards the early hours of the 21st of March.

It is a Full Moon that takes place a little less than four hours after the Sun has entered into the Sign of Aries, marking the time of the Spring Equinox and the beginning of a new astrological year.

It is also a Full Moon that takes place on the 0°09’ of the Aries – Libra axis, with the Sun that symbolizes our ego, our own self, on the very first degree of the Zodiac. An ego ready to jump on anything new filled with a pioneering spirit.

The timing of this Full Moon in Libra alludes to new beginnings or to the emergence of a new self.

The Full Moon in Libra

Full Moons are times of heightened tension. They mark a period when a balance is sought, between our will and our feelings, between the conscious self and the unconscious. Experience and objectivity on one hand, intuition and sentiments on the other, symbolized in the polarity of the Sun and the Moon.

A polarization that now during the full moon culminates, and out of its tension a realization comes, an understanding.

When the Full Moon is taking place in the Sign of Libra this realization has to do with our feelings towards others and our relationships. The Moon is in Libra, the Sign of relating and the Sun is in Aries, the Sign of self-designation. We try to rationalize our emotions and balance how we interact with others. The Sun, our conscious self, projects our ego onto our emotions and onto important others and asserts, “Me” versus “We”.

So, under this Full Moon that concerns to relationships, a seesaw moves between “Every you (Libra) and every me (Aries)”, but at which side it shall stop?

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 21 MARCH 2019

The Chart

The answer lies in the chart. The opposition of the Sun and the Moon as always is a tension that will be revealing, but in the chart of this specific Full Moon in Libra, the ruling planets of the two Lights, Mars and Venus are in square aspect to one another.

This aspect is highly charged sexuality, it is the warring principle in relationships, it is loving and hating and loving again. Mars from the most reliable and steadfast Sign of Taurus desires to relate with a most independent, freedom loving, and unpredictable Venus in Aquarius, but this is not easy. The aspect is tight nearly partile.

So this Full Moon brings a quarreling culmination between the male and the female.

Not only the Mars and Venus sexually charged clash alludes to this, because if it was only this, then the fight could be easily resolved in the bedroom and next day everything could be fine again.

Uranus in Taurus has started from March the 6th to unsettle stability, and in this particular Full Moon it is also making a quincunx aspect to the Moon. Charging with more tension the already tensed feelings, and stirring our desire for breaking away.

So, this full moon seems to be a culmination that will be a make or break in relationships with the odds being a little more in favor of breaking since as we have seen it also marks a pivotal time for new and very important beginnings due to its critical cardinal quality (0° degree Aries-Libra).

 

Is this the only verdict, aren’t there any other harmonious aspects to help?

Mercury is conjunct Neptune in Pisces and retrograde. So our thoughts may linger on the past and a re-examination of the relationship will take place. Inspired shall we be? Idealized will be the re-visioning of the past?

No, none of the two.

Mercury is also in a square aspect to Jupiter and to a sextile aspect to Saturn.

The relationship will be revisited in its whole. We will make a mental stroll in its romance and compassion and the moments of mutual understanding, but we shall also revisit its every detail and we shall over think it (Jupiter square to Mercury Rx).

Our thoughts, out of the abstract Piscean and inspired Neptunian energy will distill the essence of the relation and the sextile of Mercury to Saturn will make us asses it clearly and in its entirety.

And then… clarity will guide our actions, because Saturn is also making a nice trine to Mars.


This is a Full Moon in Libra that may affect relationships in various ways, because it will bring about decisions and will result in actions, from the day on that Mercury will stop being retrograde, on the 28th of March.


Possible manifestations of this full moon are:


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


  • It will make us realize how important or how only based on sexual drives our relationship may be.
  • It will bring about friction that will be the result that one person needs to feel freer than the other person wills to.
  • It will bring definitive decisions for ending and splitting that soon will be expressed and result in actions.

 

Though this Full Moon is a shifting for our relationships it marks a time that will be good for us, since the change seems to be necessary, it will be done after consideration and thought, and it will be us that we shall decide the when and the how.

NEW MOON IN PISCES 6 MAR GR

NEW MOON IN PISCES 6 MARCH 2019: A t l a n t i s

NEW MOON IN PISCES 6 MAR GR


The New Moon takes place at 16°09’ of the Sign of Pisces. It has a positive effect for Pisces, Taurus, and Capricorn persons, as well as for Cancer and Scorpio persons, which are born in the second decan, as well as for those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 14° – 18° degrees of the mentioned Signs.


A New Moon in Pisces takes place on March the 6th.

This is a moon from the transcendental realms. It holds the promise of a re-birth. It has a quality of merging the spiritual with the material. This is a moon to manifest the dream.

 

New Moons are always new starts. Beginnings or new happenings for better or worse depending on the aspects at the time of their occurrence and on how they activate our natal chart.

When the New Moon takes place in the Sign of Pisces it marks a new cycle that is characterized with the sensitivity of Sign. It is with inspiration, compassion, creativity, and intuition that our individual spirit, the Sun, is expressed under the Piscean influence on our psyche and our subconscious, the Moon.


Request your Astrology Reading with Andrew Ifandis


This particular New Moon twice intensifies the Piscean motifs since the two Lights are conjunct Neptune, the ruler of the Sign.

This is an aspect that if examined on its own, could mean heightened spirituality, compassion and awareness of the most-subtle vibes.

On its negative expression it could mean among others, a lack of will, not clear intentions and non-clarity in emotions. It could mean harboring unrealistic expectations from ourselves, subdued will or lessened vitality.

Even more, with Jupiter in this lunation making a square aspect to Neptune, the risk of over idealizing, of living more in the fantasy world or being overly optimistic is heightened. But…

…astrology is not just an aspect and the chart has to be viewed as an energy grid.

 

NEW MOON IN PISCES 6 MAR GR

 

The two Lights and Neptune are making sextile aspects to Mars and Saturn, two planets that themselves are in a trine aspect. This formation is called a Small Talent Triangle and channels the positive energy of the trine aspect between Mars and Saturn to the focus point that is the New Moon conjuct to Neptune.

The key of this aspect formation is that by using the Mars trine Saturn energy we can exploit the opportunities presented by the two sextiles.

Mars trine Saturn is an aspect that helps with disciplined action. It gives us the ability to set goals and the drive and energy to force them into completion. It helps us with structured ambition and to work with patience.

Mars and Saturn are both in earth signs and all things practical can now be carried through and settled with just a small perseverance. Physical effort may be necessary but it won’t tire us or exhaust us.

 

That is why this New Moon is so good.

It allows us to dream and to conceptualize. It make us feel inspired and any intentions set now will not remain mere fantasies. The trine of Mars to Saturn motivates us to act on the inspiration of this New Moon and to make a reality out of our dream.

This New Moon in Pisces does not allow wobbling and indecisiveness, dreamy escapism or scattering of our energy.

It fills our imagination, make us creative and fills us with compassion. It combines the practical with the ethereal.

It is a New Moon, best described in the words of a great Pisces, Edgar Cayce. A man who was a healer, a prophet and a clairvoyant, and who also had a similar Small Talent Triangle in his chart:

“Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions”

                                                                                                              – Edgar Cayce

Edgar Cayce NEW MOON IN PISCES 6 MARCH


Now the picture is complete.

But this is a New Moon that has a delicate timing also.

It takes place on the same day that Uranus, the planet of awakenings enters the practical and sensual Sign of Taurus. This in itself is a statement that declares that Uranus’ rejuvenating wind, under this New Moon, will mark a new sense of security and self- esteem.

Re-invigoration comes as long as we attune to the higher vibrations of Art, Empathy and Spirituality, that this New Moon is a typical paradigm for.

This New Moon in Pisces is also having a healing quality.

Mercury, in the chart of the New Moon, is stationary ready to turn retrograde from 29° Pisces, and conjunct Chiron in 0° Aries.

It is at the same cosmic moment, when Uranus is entering Taurus and activates the January 21 Lunar Eclipse in the Sign of Leo, that Mercury, infused with Chironic pain, turns to the past, to reassess the events of the strange gone era of January and last summer.

This repeat or repent of past events, is now making us to see what happened under the prism of Piscean forgiveness. First we understand and then we forgive. That is the reprise of the Mercury retrograde. The karmic lesson is now learned.


Awakening comes from forgiveness and compassion for ourselves. If we attain this for us, then we can also do this for our important others.


 This is the message of this New Moon. Just remain open to the energy of this fantastic New Moon in Pisces and start to dream of your future selves.

NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 4 FEBRUARY 2019 GR

NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 4 FEBRUARY 2019: The Building of the Cathedral

NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 4 FEBRUARY 2019


The New Moon takes place at 15°45’ of the Sign of Aquarius. It has a positive effect for Aquarius, Pisces, and Capricorn persons, and also for Gemini and Libra persons, which are born in the second decan, as well as for those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 13° – 17° degrees of the Signs mentioned.


A new moon in Aquarius takes place on February the 4th.

It is a New Moon that works like a dynamo that is propelling advancement, by setting now, the foundations for growth that is to come.

 

A new Moon in the Sign of Aquarius

Every New Moon presents an ideal time for initiation, the best time to start something. Especially when the New Moon falls in the Sign of Aquarius, it favors originality, ingenuity and planning for our future.

The Sign of Aquarius becomes creative through the expression of its need to serve humanity. It is creative, not in the way that the individual artist is creative, by making works that relate to his life and which are the images and symbols of his personal experiences.

It is creative in the way that a collaborative and joint effort is creative. A gathering of ideas and shared labor towards a common goal.


Request your Astrology Reading with Andrew Ifandis


 

This New Moon is like the building of a Cathedral.

In the detached and highly intellectual Sign of Aquarius creation comes from the labour of many, and it is like the building of a Cathedral. It is the communion that has joined together in an effort, wanting to pay homage to a greater idea, and driven by a higher cause. It is common logic and common sense, envisioning a shared future.

The Cathedral may be the concept of one person, the architect that has made the plans, but it encompasses the works of many artists. Painters, sculptors, wood-workers, organ builders, all of them contribute their piece and thus when the Cathedral is complete it then becomes a monument of collective work and co-operation.

 NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 4 FEBRUARY 2019 GR

 

The net of aspects and opportunities

The Sun and the Moon, as they are conjunct on the 4th of February, they do not receive any hard aspects and they make a conjunction to Mercury and some harmonious aspects to Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune.

The New Moon on Aquarius is conjunct to Mercury: Mercury in Aquarius accumulates ideas and can be especially creative by giving birth to an original idea or a concept. This aspect has growth potential as long as we are not fixed in our beliefs, we are not opinionated, and instead remain open and flexible to our partner’s views.

The other aspects are those of a sextile, and four semi-sextiles.

Sextiles bring opportunities that can manifest after some required effort on our side.

Semi-sextiles are the beginning of the awareness that such opportunities exist. They work as small hunches that shift our attention to something with which we may not feel familiar with, but which may be of use. They may initially feel like a small irritation that we ignore, but which eventually is proved that has pointed to something that was important.

The semi-sextiles of this New Moon in Aquarius are the arches of our Cathedral that support the magnificent dome.

  • Sun in Aquarius semi-sextile Saturn in Capricorn indicates awareness towards common goals that can lead to status and respect, as long as we can accept the constructive criticism of others on our own ideas.
  • Sun in Aquarius semi-sextile Neptune in Pisces is attunement of the self towards higher vibrations that can inspire. This inspiration will be very productive if used for serving the collaborative efforts.
  • Moon in Aquarius semi-sextile Saturn in Capricorn is sensing of the need to reserve our emotions. Potential exists from displaying a matured attitude for the sake of the common ground.
  • Moon in Aquarius semi-sextile Neptune in Pisces is feeling the vibes of the collective and collaborating with an intuitive approach. Potential exists from building a sense of communion within the team.

NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 4 FEBRUARY 2019 GR

All these small and very important semi-sextiles are tied upon the sextile aspect of Saturn and Neptune.

This is an important aspect because it joins together two planets that are in their domicile Signs.

Saturn is in Capricorn and Neptune is in Pisces, which means both planets are expressing at their best, emphasizing a motif of the construction (Saturn) of an ideal (Neptune). It is an aspect of truly inspired goals, that presents tangible opportunities for our dreams to be brought into reality.

The fact that these two planets are simultaneously in semi-sextiles with the New Moon aids, so as any new ideas conceived now, may materialize.


Request your Astrology Reading with Andrew Ifandis


Venus trine Uranus is originality in what we like and the easiness with which we like new concepts.

Mars trine Jupiter spurs us into action with fervent zeal.

Mars square Pluto is the powerful drive that fuels our intentions, is our persistence and focus to drive through and complete our work. It is the power behind the building of the new, but we have to be careful to use the unstoppable force that this square represents, constructively and completely stripped of egotistical desires.

 

Epilogue

The aspects around this New Moon are like a supportive framework that allows us to share our dream with others.

It helps us understand that there is common ground and opportunities if we work and collaborate towards the same cause.

It brings awareness of potential partnerships and relationships that though they will serve our common interests, they shall shall allow for the expression of our own originality, at the same time.

 

So enjoy this New Moon in Aquarius and embrace its potential in the best possible way!

FULL MOON IN CANCER 22 DECEMBER 2018

FULL MOON IN CANCER 22 DECEMBER 2018: Brief Repose

FULL MOON IN CANCER 22 DECEMBER 2018


The Full Moon takes place at 00°and 49’ of the Cancer Sign. It strongly affects Cancer and Capricorn Signs and also Aries and Libra Signs which are born in the first days, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 00° – 02° degrees of the Cardinal Cross.

The proximity of the Full Moon to the last degrees of the Mutable Cross affects also Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces persons that are born in the last 2 days of their Sign, or those hose having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 28°-29° degrees of the Mutable Cross


Α watery and earthly Full Moon in Cancer takes places on the 22nd of December.

This is the last full moon of the year and quite appropriately it is a Full Moon that can be seen as a brief repose in front of the homely Christmas fireplace, prior to the coming New Year and the difficult New Moon Eclipse that will take place on January the 6th.

All full moons trigger emotions and is a time of culmination, and this is all the more true when the full moon is taking place in the Sign of Cancer. Here the Moon is in its domicile Sign and emotional sensitivity is heightened even more.

A Full Moon in Cancer contrasts emotion with ambition, home with work, caring with responsibility.

In order to be able to provide for others we must find the provisions and this may sometimes makes us so absorbed in the process of finding the means, that we forget our initial cause. A full moon in Cancer usually poses a dilemma between our need to feel secured and share love with our family, and our desire to be respected and successful.

Fortunately this Full Moon in Cancer seems to remind us that which is essential as it highlights our protectiveness and aids in its expression.

A role model for success

The Moon in Cancer is our deepest need for security. We need to protect and to nurture and to feel in return nurtured and protected. The bliss is domestic and the nights are tender when spent with family and loved ones.

Our maternal feelings are brought to the fore under this Full Moon in Cancer that seems to fulfill perfectly our need to cater for those we love while simultaneously fills us with the confidence that we are competent achievers.

Our role model as the provider / supporter is acknowledged from those important in our life, family, lovers, or partners, and their recognition of our efforts, makes us shine. The more we care for (Moon in Cancer) the more respected we become (Sun in Capricorn).

This is not the case with most full moons in Cancer, where usually such a balance between professional life and family time is what is asked from us to find, but this specific Full Moon in Cancer comes with its promise of fulfillment as it directly aspects the midpoint of Jupiter / Pluto at 00°02’ of Capricorn.

The Jupiter / Pluto midpoint is potential for growth and wealth.

A growth that can be spiritual -the result of transformative processes that expand us, or material, wealth that comes as the result of patience and accomplishments in our chosen profession.

It is fortunate that the Sun of the lunation conjuncts this midpoint, an aspect that can bring success and ambitions met in professional matters.

The Moon, directly opposite this midpoint, channels this growth potential right into the family dynamics. Success comes as the result of putting our hearts in what we do not only by self-ambition but also out of a genuine affection for our beloved ones in a responsible and practical manner.

Excitement and change

The reason why this Full Moon can so constructively integrate the inherent polarity between Cancer and Capricorn, is that not only it is in aspect to the Jupiter / Pluto midpoint, but that the opposition between the two Lights is also greatly aided by Uranus.

The planet of heightened awareness is at 28°41’ Aries making a sextile and trine aspect to the Moon and the Sun respectively.

The Moon sextile to Uranus helps us to channel unconscious drives to home and family and to express them therein with truth and originality. Excitement becomes the prevailing mood that elevates the spirits of our loved ones.

The Sun trine to Uranus is ingenuity and willing for a change and moving to new territory. Support is found and opportunities arise as we intuitively let go with the flow and we remain open to new demands. We can easily make progress or try something new now.

 

FULL MOON IN CANCER 22 DECEMBER 2018

How it all comes together.

Easily and going with the flow we can deal with any changes in professional and domestic life. Sudden or new circumstances have the potential for growth and feelings are an amalgam of mature and yet tender emotions.

The emotionality of this Full Moon, brought on by the water element that is strong in the chart, with three planets, Chiron and the North Node placed in Water Signs, is not a Cancer neediness.

Nor is it, with three planets in the Earth Sign of Capricorn, the emotional coldness that the Sign usually displays.


This full moon is the reliable and responsible expression of tenderness and caring, of placing the importance to the home, to the family and to our very own sense of where we belong, regardless of the changes that happen to the outside world and our public affairs.


This Full Moon in Cancer is in one sentence:

 “HOME,

is where our true self is expressed, in loving what we do and in caring for what we love”.

Yes, this is a Full Moon that has growth potential and can bring opportunities, and depending on the astrological House that it activates in our personal horoscope, some of its possible manifestations may be:

  • Relationships can be renewed, by us showing tenderness and responsibility
  • We are cared for and we are acknowledged for our efforts from those closest to us and our self-esteem is increased
  • Changes in professional and working environment are positive or surprising without disrupting our sense of familiar
  • Pending financial matters essential for our security are now coming to a good close
  • Opportunities for selling or buying property may suddenly appear
  • If we are searching for a new house to move into, we may find one that is both comfy and worth its money.
  • It is a great period to show to those we are romantically associated with, how much we care, and this will reflect back to us

However this Full Moon in Cancer will eventually play out, it surely marks the holiday season as an ideal time to enjoy with family and loved ones, and to relax in the comfort of the Christmas hearth, protected and secure.

I wish to all a most fulfilling Full Moon in Cancer, to enjoy the holiday season and a very Merry Christmas!

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS 7 DECEMBER 2018

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS 7 DECEMBER 2018: The Great Gatsby

 

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS 7 DECEMBER 2018


The New Moon takes place at 15°07’ of the Sign of Sagittarius. It mainly affects Sagittarius and Gemini persons and also Virgo and Pisces persons which are born in the second decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 13° – 17° degrees of the Mutable Cross.

A grandiose and illusive New Moon takes place on December the 7th in the Sign of Sagittarius.

Every New Moon marks a beginning. It is the proper period to start something or to plant the seeds of the new.

It is the perfect time to set our goals and aspirations. To filter them through the prism of the Zodiac Sign in which the New Moon is taking place, and to apply them to the area of our life that the House which the New Moon activates represents in our natal chart.

When the New Moon occurs in the enthusiastic and expansive Sagittarius Sign, it usually brings a renewal in spirits and a widening of our perception. It is a moon that fills us with optimism and makes us turn to the future, helping us to grasp the big picture.

 

This New Moon on December 7th is a mixture of exuberance and sparkling allure.

It has at its core the deceptive combined with the lavishly grandiose.

It looks like an invitation to attend the cosmopolitan party that takes place in the majestic mansion.

There, excitedly, we explore the garden and vast space. We talk to everyone, get to know each other and have fun. As the hours pass, the sweet drunkenness of the evening makes us all the more relaxed.

Our mood is tipsy, we attract glances and we vibe with sexual appeal. Within the haze of the drunken hour,  we do not understand that what we are seeing around us is not what it seems, and that the persons we get acquainted with, lead a life of exaggeration. They are here just seeking the experience for the sake of experience, in an effort to fill in their inner void or their vanity.

It is on the next day and without remembering exactly what happened during last night, that with a hangover we are trying to reassemble our thoughts and recollect.


“I’ve been drunk for about a week, and I thought sitting in the library would make me again sober.”

– F. Scott Fitzgerald, “The Great Gatsby”


What I wrote in the previous lines conveys in a characteristic manner the essence of this New Moon in Sagittarius. A moon in which Neptune’s participation is very intense.

The energy of this New Moon is expressed from three different poles.

a. Excitement and Exaggeration.

The New Moon takes place in the Sign of Sagittarius. This by itself is adequate enough to fill us with optimism, spontaneity, craving for travel and having new experiences, but is also capable to give recklessness or lack of moderation. All traits of the enthusiastic Sagittarius.

Jupiter is also in the sign of Sagittarius and in a conjunction aspect to the New Moon. The aspect may be separating and at a not close distance of  8° 44’ , but nevertheless it manages to color the New Moon, all the more, since Jupiter is also the planet ruling this lunation.

Cheerfulness, enthusiasm, cosmopolitan flair, desiring to go out and have fun, all in a buoyant, boisterous mood and allegro hype.

The reason I emphasize that all this will be felt with enough exaggeration, is that planet Jupiter, dignified in the Sign it rules, does not channel its energy anywhere else, but only towards the two Lights. The lights themselves are only making hard, square and sesquisquare aspects and as a result the Jovian energy is expressed in its less positive.

b. Seductive Intoxication

Mars and Neptune are in close conjunction in the Sign of Pisces.

On its own, this is an aspect that combines mystery with Zen inertia. It expresses artistically, gives ambivalent sexuality or a unisex sex appeal. It is an aspect of a dreamy masculinity that entails fraudulent actions.


This Mars – Neptune conjuction is like a seducing smile.


NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS 7 DECEMBER 2018

Mars and Neptune are at the same time at square aspects to the New Moon.

Here we don’t have planet Mars alone, which makes a square with the Sun and the Moon, and so creating tension, agitation, irritation or aggression. We have a Mars that having adopted the Zen of Pisces, is becoming seductively mysterious under the influence of Neptune.

So…place the energy of Mars-Neptune upon the cosmopolitan mood and excitement that I have described before, and the party begins!

Into the mix there is also Neptune square to the Sun, an aspect that gives idealism, quixotic pursuits and an altered sense of ego.

There is also the square of Neptune to the Moon, which brings non-rational reactions, emotional sensitivity and an escapist idiosyncrasy.

So…the party goes on, in mood of inebriation. We will seduce and we will be seduced. Just, let us be careful not to feel intense disappointment, when the next morning comes.

3. Independence and expenses

Uranus in opposition to Venus has already brought the element of independence in what we like and in how we relate.

It is an opposition that has been in action since last September. The aspect was exact once more, while Venus was retrograde within Scorpio, and it was repeated for the third time, with Venus being direct, a few days before this New Moon.

So… for those relationships that have survived the test of the previous period, caution is now needed, because the New Moon gives in to relaxation, diffusion and an appetite for romantic adventures, which when combined with the Venus opposition Uranus aspect, may easily cause relationship cracks.

This is an opposition that can also bring sudden expenses or even surprises and excitement in our love life, in the case we are single. But any new contacts will not be having long-term prospects.

It is an opposition, which in my opinion plays an important role in the chart of this New Moon, since Uranus is placed at the same degree with the Moon’s Nodes, and at the same degree with planet Mercury that is ready to go direct in the Sign of Sagittarius.

Uranus in square to the Nodes, and Mercury in a trine-sextile aspect to them, just as it comes out of its retrograde motion, is a combination of aspects that reminds us suddenly that we must accept the changes with an open mind. We are coming out of the revision process of the previous days, and though the headache lingers a little more, we will soon be able to make sober decisions, looking towards the future.

Epilogue

The New Moon in Sagittarius on December the 7th is ideal to renew us and make us relax. It seems to be a moon that favors light-hearted fun and escaping by traveling or by reading a good book.

But it is also a moon that calls for our attention to some matters, depending on the house which it activates in our astrological map.

  • It is a New Moon that does not favor new beginnings or plans that need practical and solid foundations.
  • It is a New Moon in which we must be careful not to act with over-enthusiasm and excessive optimism since we find it difficult to realistically assess the situations.
  • Finally, it would be advisable, that we take care to not overdo it with drinking and revelry, be on alert for deceptive loves, viroses and abuses, because all these may easily result in fatigue and emotional exhaustion.

 

That’s why the following sentence from the novel “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald, comes to my mind, as it perfectly sums up the energy of this New Moon.

“I’ve been drunk for about a week, and I thought sitting in the library would make me again sober.”

Gatsby did not manage to make it sober.

We can.

 

I wish you all to have a fantastic New Moon.
