The eclipse at a cosmic level

The Total Lunar Eclipse takes place on January 20 or 21, 2019, depending on where on the world we are.

In the archetypal conflict that this lunar eclipse represents, expressed by the position of the Sun in Aquarius in opposition to the Moon in Leo, two more astrological factors are added.

The first is that the axis of the eclipse is in the signs of Capricorn and Cancer and the second that the planet Uranus is in a square aspect to the two Lights, a basic and defining aspect as we have already said in our analysis of the influence of this eclipse on an individual level.

All the sparkling electricity, and the revolutionary or subversive action of the planet Uranus, that is now moving direct, is beginning to find a way out, and this fact shows us emphatically that at the cosmic level we will see protests and uproars in the coming months.

 

The two January eclipses combined.

If we combine the above factors, the intensity of this eclipse at a cosmic level results from a conflict between leadership (Leo) and political bodies or collective movements (Aquarius), since important for the general development (Nodal Axis), is how power is exerted (Capricorn) in relation to issues of homeland, nationality and tradition (Cancer).

This Lunar eclipse signifies the impact of the situations that began with the Solar Eclipse that preceded it. Thus, these two eclipses in combination can mean:

The way power is handled by technocratic and logistic structures, and the empowerment of oppression and control (Capricorn), cause immediate and rapid awareness in the masses.

Awareness associated with how governments exert their power (Solar Eclipse in Capricorn) are now causing a crisis between leaders (Leo Moon) and collective or political bodies (Sun in Aquarius)

or

Challenge the pride of the People (Moon in Leo) who reacts (Sun in Aquarius), joining the individual action with the collective process.

These awareness culminate emotionally, and within a short time they bring fights or protest that relate both to the sense of security and to issues of homeland (Cancer).

Lunar Eclipse in Leo 21 January

 

Cosmic Level – Anatomy of the Aspects

The square of Sun to Uranus shakes the dull everyday life, brings a reaction towards figures of power, and creates a break with everything that wants to patronize our individual expression in the name of the common goal. It is the eccentric autonomy that does not want boundaries and limitations. It is the rebellious ego within us.

The square of Moon to Uranus is the outbreak of the tension. The anxiety and the agitation that cumulatively burst with an excitement of electrical tension. Upheaval in our family and home life.

The square of Mercury to Uranus is unexpected news, nerves and cerebral tension. Commotion in transportation and reversals of plans. Sudden events related to media.

The square of Uranus with the Moon’s Nodes brings the energy of the planet into the heart of the events and gives its strong stigma for the following period with collective reactions.

The square of Mars to Saturn, in an almost precise aspect, is conflict with law, discipline, prevention, fatigue, limited action, anger, and conflict.

Vision of the days to come

It is obvious that the Total Lunar Eclipse of January hides pressure and eruptive events that we will soon see develop. Examples are the latest political developments in Greece and reactions in France and England (Brexit), dealing with national issues and the exercise of power.

The Total Lunar Eclipse is fully visible in all its phases (penumbral, partial, total) from all the countries in North and South America, from the United Kingdom, Portugal, Norway and Sweden.

It is also visible in the phases of partial and total eclipse, from the rest of Europe and from Northwest Africa.

In the above regions it is that we shall witness the events that the eclipse brings.

Coming Full Circle

The Total Lunar Eclipse on January 21, 2019 brings down the curtain of the eclipses on the Leo – Aquarius axis.

It takes place at 0° 51′ degrees of Leo and completes a long series of eclipses happening on the above axis. Eclipses, that since February 2017, and combined with planet Uranus entering in the Sign of Taurus, have signaled significant, difficult or in some cases even painful changes for several of the Signs of the Fixed Cross.

This blood moon eclipse that once again activates the first degrees of the Fixed Signs, something that last summer has created tensions with:

  • Either sudden break-ups,
  • Or considerations to ending our relationship, that eventually were dismissed in an attempt to renew it, despite the emotional suffocation,
  • Or separations that seemed to be definitive.

All of the above are also true for partnerships and professional or other close personal relationships.

Now the circle closes and this eclipse marks for the Signs of the Fixed Cross, and even more for those in the degrees I mention in the introduction, definitive outcomes, since any turns and changes will have been completed by mid-April at the latest.

 

The Theme of the Eclipse – Individual Level

 

This eclipse follows the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn that took place two weeks ago, and as such it represents our emotional climax and response to the awareness that then started, and to the demands that are now beginning to appear.

With the Sun in the Sign of Aquarius and the Moon in the Sign of Leo, the eclipse brings to the fore situations that on the personal level relate to ourselves being part of a wider whole on one hand, and to our need for self-expression on the other.

With the Moon being close to the North Node in the Leo Sign, this eclipse invites us to leave behind detached or intellectual behaviors, that do not help us in important relationships and partnerships, and urges us to function by showing more passion and more emotion.

It is an eclipse that invites us to harmonize and work with others, but that also gives us the necessary space for creation.


Persons, relationships, and situations that do not help our self-expression will be left behind so that we can move forward with those who accept our healthy expression of who we are and who also give us their acceptance and their love.

 

This will of course not be easy.

Lunar Eclipse in Leo 21 January

 

In the archetypal conflict expressed by the position of the Sun in Aquarius and the Moon in Leo, the astrological factor added is the planet Uranus that makes a square aspect with the two Lights.

It is an eclipse that brings electrifying tension.

 

“Feelings have a bad knack. They burst suddenly. When you least expect it.”

Anton Chekhov

 

This phrase from the theatrical play “Uncle Vanya”, of the great Russian playwright, describes in the best way the energy of this very strong eclipse.

That is exactly how the situations will be finalized. That is how space will be made for us to go forward.

With sudden outbursts of emotions or reactions.

 

This is how we’ll be lead to definitive separations or, in some cases, to definitive reunions.

In so sudden a way we will become aware of who we are, who we are together with, and how we will move forward.

 


But the chart of the eclipse is not only tension.

It has the wonderful conjunction of Venus with Jupiter which finds both planets together in a trine aspect to Mars. An aspect of popularity that brings new acquaintances, love opportunities and favors action towards new collaborations.

This conjunction also forms a square aspect to Neptune, so our attention is needed, as we are permanently done with the past, to properly evaluate the new, and not make the mistake of having unrealistic expectations or coloring it with pink glasses.

So, on a personal level, this difficult eclipse may initially bring uncertainty and insecurity, but let us remember that with self-control, adaptability and acceptance of change, we will be able to manage the new situations and exploit the opportunities it will create for us.

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!

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.


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


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.

 

FULL MOON IN GEMINI NOVEMBER 2018

 

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.

FULL MOON IN GEMINI NOVEMBER 2018 GR

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.

FULL MOON IN TAURUS OCTOBER 2018

FULL MOON IN TAURUS OCTOBER 2018: Unsettled Stability

FULL MOON IN TAURUS OCTOBER 2018


The Full Moon takes place at 01°13’ of the Sign of Taurus. It mainly affects Taurus and Scorpio persons and also Leo and Aquarius persons which are born in the first days of their Sign, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 0° -3° degrees of the Fixed Cross.

The proximity of the Full Moon to the last degrees of the Cardinal Cross affects also Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn 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 Cardinal Cross.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

A difficult Full Moon in Taurus is taking place on October 24th.

A Full Moon is a point of culmination. It usually marks a time when processes or events that have begun two weeks before with the New Moon are now reaching their climax.

That is why under the Full Moon we are usually charged with tension. We now either successfully conclude what has started then, or we clearly see what is lacking, what needs to be corrected, and we are called to re-adjust our actions or our attitude.

 

A Full Moon in Taurus

When the Full Moon is taking place in the Sign of Taurus, the tension felt is the result of the contrast between our need to feel emotionally safe in practical and simple terms, while at the same we want to change, we want deep emotional stimulation and are drawn to complexity of emotions.

It can also mean that circumstances may indeed be transforming, stirring inside us feelings of insecurity and the need to be grounded again, the need to hold on to something dear that gives a sense or a pretext of simple security.

This second case is somewhat closer to the energy of the Full Moon in Taurus that takes place on the night of the 24th of October and that brings high tension in the way we relate.

 

The Pent-up Emotions

FULL MOON IN TAURUS OCTOBER 2018If we examine the chart of this Full Moon in Taurus the first thing that strikes us is the Grand Cross formed in the Fixed Signs.

The Nodal Axis in the Leo – Aquarius is forming tight squares with the Sun and Venus conjunction in Scorpio and with the Moon and Uranus conjunction in Taurus. It is as if this Full Moon is a pivotal point, a crossroads where stacked up energy has reached its maximum point and the pressure has to be released.

The imbalance represented by the Full Moon’s axis, the Sun and Venus opposing Moon and Uranus, is presenting a crisis necessary for our self-development.


There is a karmic and evolutionary lesson that can be found here if we are able to integrate this Full Moon’s opposition constructively.


It seems that it is easy for us to be absorbed in an egotistical expression of ourselves (North Node in Leo), that has its roots in an adolescent and irresponsible sense of individualism (South Node in Aquarius), and which is now challenging our relationships.

Or to be more precise, regardless of whether we are in a relationship or we are single, this Grand Cross challenges our very sense of self-worth and emotional security as denoted by the Full Moon axis in Taurus – Scorpio.

What we are called to do, and which is difficult, is to instead turn the picture upside down.

We have to use the energy of the Nodal Axis the opposite way. Begin our approach with the co-operative and dispassionate spirit of Aquarius and then moving on towards expressing our selves with the warmth, creativity, and love, traits that Leo displays when at its best.

This approach will help to a constructive expression of the Full Moon opposition in a beneficial way, but it is indeed very difficult for us to adopt it because the Grand Square is in Fixed Signs, denoting stubbornness and difficulty to let go of our pent-up emotions.

FULL MOON IN TAURUS OCTOBER 2018

The Disruptive Challenge for Relations

This Full Moon’s tension is not only the polarity of the Sun and Moon in the Taurus – Leo Axis.

It is a tension that is highly amplified by Planet Uranus that is in a conjunction with the Moon. Retrograde and at the same time on the powerful 0° of Taurus, Uranus creates emotions highly strung with octanes of nervousness. We need to be free and to express our emotions, out in the open, regardless of norm or convention.

In addition to this, Uranus is not only conjunct the Moon, but simultaneously is in an opposition aspect to the Sun and to planet Venus in Scorpio.

Its opposition with the Sun in Scorpio brings rebelliousness, independence and a need to break away from manipulating and complex-ridden relationships.

Uranus conjunct with the exalted Moon in the sensual Taurus, is in opposition with the sexually charged Venus that moves retrograde in Scorpio. This is a combination of energies that make us to more prefer satisfying our hedonistic needs than to relate deeply, sharing emotional connection.

So, either more freedom is what we need, or we are full of enthusiasm for new flirts, or a sudden new romance appears.

Whatever the case, our erotic life is shaken and is very likely to change under this combination of aspects.

 

The Triggering of the Next Eclipse

Whatever Uranus’ participation in the Full Moon may bring in the following weeks, it will be something possible to be repeated or to be concluded with the Total Lunar Eclipse on January 21, 2019.

The eclipse takes place on 0°52’ of Leo, and Uranus in this Full Moon chart, is tightly squaring its degree, activating and triggering events or situations that will again concern us near the time of the eclipse.

 

Unsettling of Stability

The circumstances under this Full Moon in Taurus are unsettling to our stability and serenity.

This is a Full Moon that has the potential to deeply affect relationships or how we relate. It is charged with highly – strung emotions, brings the need for freedom and for expression of our individuality.

The only stabilizing factors in the chart of this Full Moon in Taurus, is that Saturn is making a trine aspect to the Moon and Uranus as well as a sextile to Venus. These aspects somehow ground the disruptive energy and work beneficially for relations that otherwise could very easily break under the stress of this Full Moon.

Emotions, though tense, can be patient, mature and we may manage the sudden in a responsible manner.

 

However, high tension remains in the air.

  • We have to be careful because this Full Moon in Taurus may be the beginning of a crisis that will lead to break ups and splits, a crisis that may re-appear in end January 2019 or a little afterwards.
  • Let us be prepared for sudden events that challenge what was up to now familiar, highlighting the need for re-establishing emotional security in our love lives.
  • We may try and use the grounding energy of the Saturn aspects to re-new relationships in a new basis.
  • We have to take care with money and investments for the next two weeks, as the possibility for high volatility and uncertainty in finances is high.

This is a difficult full moon that places us at the crossroads, and the thing is that it seems we won’t be able to choose easily or decisively on which path to take yet, but we’ll have to wait until later on.

FULL MOON IN ARIES SEPTEMBER 2018: The Dark Night of the Soul

FULL MOON IN ARIES SEPTEMBER 2018


This Full Moon in Aries will bring tension and tests to the relationships of Aries and Libra Signs and increased responsibility to home and career for Cancer and Capricorn Signs.

Planet Mars in conjunction to the South Node shall affect the Signs of the Fixed Cross (Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio, and Taurus).

This Full Moon has a potent dynamic and depending on where it falls on our personal horoscope it affects all of us that are having personal planets, angles and points in the above Signs, and especially those that are born in the first decan of these Signs.

An autumnal Full Moon in Aries is taking place on September 24th 2018.

The characterization autumnal is twice appropriate for this full moon, since besides its seasonal character, in addition it describes the mood that this full moon creates.

But let’s take first things first.

This is a Full Moon in Aries. The moon when in the Sign of Aries, though bold it may be, is at the same time an ego-centered, impatient moon that rushes headlong into confrontation if provoked. A Moon placed here makes us to respond quick and immediate to external stimuli, something that now that the Moon is fully lit by the Sun opposite her, is accentuated.

Every full moon is the tension of something culminating or coming to fulfillment and when the Aries Moon is fully opposite the Sun in Libra, the tension is others and relationships.

  • Should we be Competitive or Compromising?
  • Can we two work together?
  • Should we boldly express our needs or should we find delicate ways to make others understand what is that we want of them?

These are some of the themes of this archetypal opposition and this particular Full Moon in Aries brings these issues to the fore and moreover adds a tone of melancholy, heated discussions and embitterment in the whole mix.

Words may hurt

The main players of the Full Moon are each one conjunct to another body. Sun in Libra is making a conjunction with Mercury and Moon a conjunction with Chiron in Aries.

Try to imagine now how the mix is changed. It is very difficult for a person to compromise one opposition, let alone the four ones formed in the Full Moon in Aries chart.

  • Chiron opposes Sun
  • Chiron opposes Mercury
  • Mercury opposes Moon
  • Mercury opposes Chiron

The tension feels like a disagreement between an already wounded and touchy female and an intellectual and diplomatic man that tries to find a way to compromise without succumbing to emotional blackmail.

Especially with this Full Moon where Mercury is conjunct the Sun in Libra, common sense and logic require discussions and a climate of co-operation in order to avoid conflicts.

We have to communicate but at the same time we must be careful of what we are saying and how we are saying it, because Mercury in opposition with the Moon brings difficulties in expression and can make us communicate what we feel in a totally erroneous manner.

The woman’s hurt feelings cannot be easily soothed by the man’s logical approach. Regardless of how balanced and compromising words he may use, the opposition of Chiron to Mercury drags up memories of emotional pain.

“You talk to me with words, I talk to you with feelings”, she says.

 

 

Respect, Truth and Warmth

On top of these already over-emotional and stressed oppositions, planet Saturn stands as a merciless judge, being in a square aspect to all participating bodies.

Saturn is once more direct in the Sign of Capricorn from September the 6th, and now demands truth, integrity and responsibility. Within the aspect patterns of this full moon, Saturn is the focal planet of two T-squares that involve the Moon – Chiron conjunction on one side, and the Sun-Mercury conjunction on the other.

So if we include Saturn, we are having four more aspects that cast their gloom and somber tone on the picture.

  • Saturn squares Sun
  • Saturn squares Mercury
  • Saturn squares Moon
  • Saturn squares Chiron

To continue with the illustration I gave before, the man has to balance between being overly strict, resulting in exerting much emotional pressure on one side, and not clearly defining where his limits are, on the other, something that will result in the problem of them being crossed again.

He has to think clearly and be fair, avoiding misunderstandings and his darker expression.

The woman has to find the courage to overcome her sadness and fears and to cope with the situation understanding that it is a natural process towards addressing the relationship issues successfully and result in overall healing and well-being.

She does not have to feel inadequate, on the contrary, the square of Saturn the great teacher with Chiron the wounded healer, is a challenge to treat herself and her partner with respect and genuine warmth. It is the necessary friction that she has to transcend in order to cross the barrier of suffering and communicate her feelings with truth and kindness.

 

A trigger for closure

That would be the ideal, all of us to be able to grasp the hard aspects and to use them constructively and at will, but as we know this is more easily said than done.

This Full Moon in Aries is a pivotal Full Moon with Mars conjunct the South Node at 4° of the Aquarius Sign, a degree that is triggering the Lunar Eclipse of the 27th of July. All the issues that have emerged from the difficult summer have now to be faced and dealt with, even if risking a possible split or final loss.

Fortunately Mars is direct this time, and it is making a sextile to the Moon in Aries (that it also rules), and a trine to the Sun in Libra. Both aspects easing the tension and aiding discussions and the means to finding a common ground.

But in order to do so Mars demands co-operative spirit, healthy ego and the rationalization of the pent-up emotions in true Aquarian spirit.

We have to be patient also…

This Full Moon in Aries is the Dark Night of the Soul, a night with a potential for transformation through healing both for us and for our relations.

 

As Joseph Campbell said:


“The Dark Night of the Soul comes just before revelation.

When everything is lost, and all seems darkness, then comes the new life, and all that is needed.”

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

Full Moon in Pisces 26 August 2018


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

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

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

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

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

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

Full Moon in Pisces 26 August 2018

 

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

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

A Grand Trine between the Sun, Saturn and Uranus in the Earth Signs, forms the Kite’s main body.

This trine effortlessly grounds the transcendental idealism of the Moon in Pisces (situated at the tail of the Kite), and sets for us the foundations to materialize our dream in a practical level, as long as we adhere to the following:

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

Full Moon in Pisces 26 August 2018

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

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

 

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

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

 

I wish to everyone a fulfilling Full Moon in Pisces.
