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.

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.

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.


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


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:


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


  • 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: 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.


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


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.

FULL MOON IN GEMINI NOVEMBER 2018

FULL MOON IN GEMINI NOVEMBER 2018: “Laissez faire, laissez passer”

FULL MOON IN GEMINI NOVEMBER 2018


The Full Moon takes place at 00°and 52’ of the Gemini Sign. It strongly affects Gemini and Sagittarius Signs and also Pisces and Virgo 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 Mutable Cross.

The proximity of the Full Moon to the last degrees of the Fixed Cross affects also Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius 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 Fixed Cross.


A Full Moon in Gemini is taking place on the night of the 22nd towards the early morning of November the 23rd.

When the Moon is in Gemini we are expressing of our needs. We feel, we remember, we think. Nostalgia and emotions turns into words. We intellectually tune with the emotional self and now it is the proper time for all this heightened emotional sensitivity to be expressed.

With the Sun in Sagittarius opposing the moon in Gemini these needs are highlighted, thoughts are rationalized and become aims and expectations. Expectations of a higher nature, desires of a self that is yearning to learn and be wise.

At least, this would be the ideal scenario for a Full Moon in Gemini, but unfortunately it is not the case with this Full Moon. A Full Moon that takes place within a grid of planetary energies and aspects that bring excesses and overreactions.

First of all the ruler of the Full Moon, Mercury in the Sign of Sagittarius, is retrograde. This at its best makes our thoughts to turn introspective. We try to find our inner truth and contemplate on matters silently.

At its worst, Mercury’s placement in the Sign of Sagittarius makes us highly opinionated. Judgmental and sticking to doctrine. We think that our truth is the only truth and we tend to glibly express it.

As if this tendency for bluntness was not enough, Jupiter is also conjunct to Mercury retrograde. The mind reels in its inward thinking process, contemplating so many things, and as it strives to assimilate everything into an objective truth, it jumps to overstatements and exaggerations.

We therefore have to be very careful with WHAT we say and HOW we say it.

 

Mercury is also square to Neptune in Pisces.

Our judgment is clouded. A mist lingers on the tracks of the unceasing train of thoughts. We cannot think clearly, the mind detaches and loses its objective footholds, sliding to fantasy land, daydreaming.

Under this hazy landscape we may be the victims of misconceptions or be deceived. We have to be very careful in all matters that require precision of thought and clear judgment, and it is better to delay decisions till later.

 

Jupiter is also conjunct the Sun and opposing the Moon.

Though the first aspect brings optimism, generosity, and enthusiasm, the opposition with the Moon, especially now that the moon is full in a polarity that highlights our emotional needs, brings overwhelming sentimentality.

Remember that under a full moon emotions are always tense.  The Jupiter conjunct Sun enthusiasm in its heart entails an overestimated confidence in ourselves and our abilities. A faith in us that may turn out to be just a result of cloudy judgment (Mercury Rx square Neptune) and that will make us not to know where we stop.

We have to be careful not to be deceived out of sheer faith in the good intentions of others.

We must remember not to over emphasize our needs and be intolerant to other’s views.

The above scenery becomes more dynamic by Mars’s involvement in the Full Moon as the planet of action and energy is making a T-Square with the Two Lights. In addition to this, Mars is also square to Mercury and square to Jupiter.

When planet Mars is in the Sign of Pisces, and does not make enough harmonious aspects so as to channel its energy with creativity or compassion, it usually expresses in a passive – aggressive way. It may even express with non-action, preferring to let things to take their own course. It is lack of will and indecisiveness towards specific action.

As the apex planet of this T-Square, Mars is gathering the energy of the planets involved in the following aspects and possible manifestations of its energy are:

  • Mars square to Moon: We may be oversensitive and easily hurt. adopting the role of the martyr. On its assertive way the aspect may bring anger and emotional frustration.
  • Sun square to Mars: We may act impulsively, assert our ego ten times more than necessary fueled by zeal and intolerance. On its passive expression, with this aspect we may adopt an impasse “Laissez faire, laissez passer” inertia.
  • Mercury square to Mars. Disagreements and verbal confrontations may rise out of us not taking action! Others may interpret our waiting inactivity or silence, as something negative. Misjudgments and cloudy thinking may make us angered and we project this to our relations with important others.
  • Mars square to Jupiter: Impulsive actions, carelessness or recklessness due to overconfidence. On its passive expression it is an aspect of blunders and waste of energy. It may also be spiritual and philosophical disagreements. Even awkward expression of sexuality that is infused with semi-romanticism and hesitance.

Mars from Pisces squaring the Full Moon is intense emotional charge without a clear outlet. It may bring passive anger that eventually manifests psychosomatically.

The only aspect that can somehow clear the ground and bring focus and determination is Mars sextile Saturn.

The challenge of this Full Moon in Gemini is that it is a perplexed mix of wasted energy and exaggeration.

While it highlights our need to communicate, our very message is something that becomes really difficult to come through, within the above landscape where clarity of thought and direction of will is lacking. Boisterous, we may overestimate ourselves or say words that we’d better not.

As the song goes, “Words are very unnecessary…” and most probably our attempts to speak or act will only result in misinterpretation and misunderstandings.

It is thus important to remain focused.  We should better be cautious and avoid verbal conflicts and tensions within this boggy mutable energy.

What we need to do:

  • Every effort of communication is useful to be attempted with the objectivity that Gemini has, being an air Sign.
  • We should better first examine how realistic are the emotions that we want to express or the judgments that we make.
  • We should try to see the other’s side with the wisdom of Sagittarius.
  • Yes, we should express our wants and needs, but we are called upon to do this without emotional involvement, objectively and by avoiding preconceptions and doctrines, blind faith and dogmatism.
  • We should carefully decide on our course of action and be on the alert for misjudgments, being deceived, or being lied to by others.

 

This Full Moon in Gemini is calling us to accept that there is inner tension and that the better way to handle it is to try to ease our temper, act with moderation instead of exaggeration, rely on patience and self-control, and double-check our own, as well as others’ words, intentions and promises.

A beautiful, inspiring and empowering New Moon in Scorpio takes place on November the 7th.

The New Moon is the time when the Sun and the Moon come together at the same area of the sky as they cycle the celestial dome and their meeting marks a reset in the ever-changing influx of the lunar and solar energies.

What we intuitively need (the Moon), is now made conscious, and we can use our creative energy (the Sun), to initiate, make a new start or to refresh actions or relationships.

 

New Moon in Scorpio

When the Sun is in Scorpio our will is strengthened, desires are deep and everything takes on an existential quality. All issues are approached with a “matter of life and death” attitude. They are important, because we ourselves feel important and we can display intensity of will.

The Moon in Scorpio is intense emotions, buried emotions, taboo emotions. It is supercharged psychological intensity, urges of the psyche powerful enough to transform.

The lunar emotional depth when combined with the solar strong will, make every New Moon in Scorpio a potential powerhouse of renewed emotional stamina.


Each New Moon in Scorpio is sheer determination to go after our desires and it may act as a boost for transformation in the area of life denoted by the house in which it falls on our personal horoscope.


These qualities make this specific New Moon in Scorpio on November the 7th to be exactly what we need after the three difficult moons that have preceded it.

At last, after a period when we had to cope with difficult emotions and sudden changes, we can now regain our power and renew our emotional strength.

The power surge that this lunation gives, is amplified by the fact that the Sun and the Moon are not only in Scorpio but also in a sextile aspect to Pluto, the Sign’s ruler and so ruler of this New Moon.

The sextile of Sun to Pluto brings opportunities for empowerment on personal and professional level.

It is an aspect that means that we now can fulfill desires with little effort or that we can join our power with that of persons of authority or financial status and to achieve more. We are focused, determined and concentrated and there is no need to force or manipulate matters or persons.

At the same time the Moon is in a sextile aspect to Pluto. Any intense feelings of the previous period were a necessary cleaning of the dark places of the soul. And though this may have been a painful or exhausting process, it made the necessary room for us, and we can now again feel how strong we can be.

We have emotional control and we are again able to share deeply and intensely, no more being recipients of emotional blackmail or feeling vulnerable, but ready to trust again.

The New Moon is also in a trine aspect to the planet Neptune in the Sign of Pisces.

This aspect makes us creative, feels us with inspiration and make us easily sense the ambient vibes. It can work marvels in our relationships. Now we are in touch with our most spiritual and we care for what is cherished in our hearts. We see the other’s point of view, we walk in their shoes and we can comfort or show that we really understand.


This New Moon in Scorpio is acute perceptiveness that brings renewed spiritual connection (Neptune in Pisces) and regained psychological empowerment (Pluto in Capricorn).

It makes us ponder deeply on those issues relating to the area of life that it falls on our personal horoscope, brings intuitive understanding, makes us feel empowered and helps with closure of the past and moving on to new territory.


NEW MOON IN SCORPIO NOVEMBER 2018

Why is that?

Why this New Moon has such an ending quality and at the same time is a new beginning?

Why this New Moon works as a closure or as the final paragraph before moving on to the next chapter?

If we examine the chart of the New Moon we see that Jupiter, Uranus and the Nodal Axis are all situated at 29th degree. This degree in astrology is one of the critical degrees and is usually connected with endings.

 

The Critical Anaretic Degrees

In the chart of this New Moon, Jupiter is about to move from Scorpio into Sagittarius.

It is now time to move on from the truth of the soul to the truth of the world, expanding outwardly and not inwardly, but before doing so we have to face for one last time our deepest emotions, out very truth.

At the same time Uranus, as it moves retrograde, is on the 29th last degree of Aries Sign. Issues relating to how we can embrace freedom and individuality without being self-centered and disruptive to our relations are again of concern.

In addition to that, Venus is separating from an opposition to Uranus, an aspect that was exact one week before the New Moon, and that has created tensions, or to some of us considerations to ending relations or to others even actual break-ups.

The Lunar Nodes are also at 29°57’, critical degrees, as they have just entered into the Capricorn – Cancer axis something that denotes a shifting of energy that will bring the emphasis on a totally new area of life (chapter) for our personal horoscope for the next 1.5 years.

 

Chiron

This repetition of the 29th degrees gives this ending quality to this New Moon.

Accompanying this feeling, Chiron the wounded healer is at 28° 20’ of Pisces.

From there it makes a trine aspect to Jupiter and a sextile and trine aspect to the Lunar Nodes, infusing the lunation with healing energy.

Jupiter is also trine – sextile to the Nodes while Uranus is in a tight square to them at the same time. The one planet bringing sudden changes, the other bringing advancement and luck.

We can now see how the evolutionary path of the Nodes will lead to a new chapter.

Inevitable change and disruption of our security was necessary before us moving into to a whole new territory that has a promise of optimism and expansion. The new will come after having first made closure with the past. This is a necessary process for us, and we have to move on either with our relations re-invigorated or with a new version of our empowered self.

 

Epilogue

This New Moon in Scorpio inspires and moves us within higher frequencies of spiritual rebirth. It is either a renewal of the value that we receive from others or a renewal of our own self.
