Degree: 21°07′ Libra

South Node Eclipse

Type of Eclipse: Annular

Eclipse Time: 15:55:06 UTC

 

On October 14th , an important Solar Eclipse takes place in the sign of Libra. A New Moon will eclipse the Sun for five minutes, bringing a temporary void, a change of consciousness and a cosmic reboot to our lives.

Solar Eclipses always act as powerful catalysts and bring events that are always transformative and transforming. Sometimes they are a cosmic leap forward, a cosmic push, while other times they are sharp turns in the path that fate has laid out for us, ending one chapter of our lives , and opening a new one at the same time. Solar Eclipses have a profound impact on our lives and always manifest in the form of events.

This Solar Eclipse in the sign of Libra will definitely change our relationships and our approach to them until now.

 

The Moon’s Nodes rotate on the Aries – Libra axis highlighting karmic choices and events that are meant to bring balance and justice in the area of “us” versus “them”.

An evolutionary lesson they bring is on the one hand to develop a healthy sense of individuality, and on the other to be able to foster and nurture relationships with significant others.

Another lesson is to stop needing others when it is of no benefit to us and to be able to be independent and self-reliant.

This Libra Eclipse is a mirror.

Each of you will look at yourself in the mirror and depending on the state of balance within yourselves or your relationships you will see a different reflection.

Those of you who compromise and tend to always please others will realize that this may be good in the short term, but in the long term it is something that creates problems in your relationships.

You deserve to be yourself and not let others have their way with you.

Those of you who have a strong need to be with someone else, you may now realize that romantic daydreams and the need to belong somewhere, are only hindering your growth.

Light your inner flame first and get comfortable with being alone.

If you are already in a balanced relationship, this eclipse will bring unexpected events that can be disappointing and require adjustments to be made. This eclipse will be a test for both of you. But it has the potential for healing that will ultimately strengthen the bonds between you.

Something big is happening…

 

Uranus forms a quincunx aspect with the Sun and Moon. A sudden impulse, a bump in our safety zone, the need for renewal, or the perfect opportunity to get rid of unhealthy relationship patterns and start over.

The events that this eclipse brings will lead to difficult decisions. Should we break up or continue to compromise? Do we break up or discuss ways to regain balance?

Mercury in Libra and in close conjunction with the Eclipse, brings unexpected news, requires an adjustment in the way we perceive things and a need for original or even radical ideas. Diplomacy for diplomacy’s sake is NOT a solution. It will only perpetuate the vicious circle. The necessary discussions will therefore take place.

Negotiate the issues, but be neither indecisive or too soft.

Determination, boldness and taking action are essential with this eclipse. As Mars in the sign of Scorpio forms a trine aspect with Saturn in Pisces, it is important to delve into your feelings and act based on them.

But expression and actions must have responsibility and maturity so that a way forward can eventually be found. A path that, yes, aligns with the shared relationship dream, but does not rob you of your own identity.

This eclipse is a karmic test.

 

Venus is still in a sextile aspect to Mars. Two planets ruling respectively the South and North Node of the Moon, and aiding in our evolutionary path.

There is love or the longing to share love. There are tender feelings to share, or sadness because we don’t have someone to share them with. There is a dream that is disturbed or a disappointment that comes and we must overcome it.

Whether alone or in a relationship with this eclipse we will have to take a little second look at reality. To do a reality check.

A difficult reality check because Chiron in Aries is in opposition to the Sun and Moon.

This Eclipse will be a little pinprick, like that of a needle. A little pain, a more or less painful turn inward, a temporary numbness that will wake you up, you and others alike, taking you out of your comfort zone.

To see reality. To act. To confront traumas of the past. To face the wound.

With courage.

To see yourself for who you are.

To see the other for who they are.

Whether single and alone, or in a relationship, the point is to find a balance of needs, and to do the necessary healing.

If you are in a relationship and this eclipse brings something unexpected then it is important to stand together and overcome the situation together.

This eclipse is a karmic test.

 

Pluto has turned direct four days before this bittersweet eclipse.

The necessary introspection has been completed. The dark elements are slowly being removed. We are rediscovering our psychic power after a process of digging into the depths of the psyche. Soul cleansing. Removal of what is not needed. Transformation. Chrysalis to Butterfly.

What this Solar Eclipse in Libra does is that it creates space for new life to grow. There may be some pain, but that is exactly the key. Transformational healing and change for the better is on the way.

For the universe is wise and knows best.

What may seem like pain now will only seem like a little pinprick later.

Whether you’re in a relationship or not.

NEW MOON IN LIBRA 25 SEPTEMBER 2022

The New Moon in Libra on September 25th is a beautiful moon that renews relationships and sets the stage for more balance and harmony in our lives.

Each New Moon is a new beginning, a cosmic reset in the universal clock and brings with it the opportunity to reboot the sector of our horoscope in which it falls. The New Moon in Libra awakens within us a need to relate, to communicate, to enjoy more beauty and simplicity with loved ones.

Libra is the sign of diplomacy and negotiation, so we now have the opportunity to resolve issues in relationships and partnerships that have been troubling us in the near past.

The best way to take advantage of the energy of this New Moon is to work on rebalancing our relationships. To see not only our own side but also that of others, and to appreciate the people who are important as our teammates rather than our adversaries.

The New Moon makes an important aspect as Mercury conjuncts Venus very close to her, at the last degrees of Virgo. The combined energy of the New Moon, Venus, and Mercury allows for a soft and tension-free review of what has been happening in existing relationships, and infuses discussions and communication with necessary moderation and a spirit of humility so that conflicts can be avoided and necessary compromises can be found.

 

However, following the middle way will not be easy, as the New Moon is in close opposition to Jupiter, the planet of abundance and excess. Jupiter’s influence could greatly enhance our emotionality and lead us to over-exaggerate feelings.

Jupiter will awaken in all of us the need for togetherness.

“Two lovers embraced pass before me and God knows how sad I feel,” says one lyric, and that very longing for union bubbles up and comes to the surface with this Moon for those who are single.

But now this longing is not an unattainable and unfulfilled desire, since as Mercury is retrograde and in its conjunction with Venus, it can bring encounters and the prospect of something new romantically, which however have the potential to come to fruition after October 2nd, when Mercury will be direct again.

With the New Moon in Libra, those of you who are single are advised to ask yourselves if you can make room in your life for a new relationship. Are you ready and willing to re-adjust parts of your life to make room for a partner? Jupiter’s opposition as it is retrograde in Aries asks you to be honest with yourself and ONLY after you have given yourself the answers then prospects will open up and what is meant to be, will be.

Another reason this New Moon awakens passion and longing for a relationship is that the conjunction between Venus and Mercury retrograde, is in a harmonious trine aspect with Pluto in Capricorn. The potential for metamorphosis that the New Moon brings in the emotional realm is VERY great, as it brings deep realizations in your perceptions of what a relationship means and in your own relationships!

 

For the end I have left a special aspect that from my studies in astrology I consider very important in this New Moon.

Mars in Gemini is in a quintile aspect to Jupiter. In this aspect lies a secret. Something that is not indicated by the main aspects we have analyzed.

The secret is to give intentional emphasis to what you desire on the New Moon day and to believe deeply that it will manifest. Jupiter’s esoteric and magnifying influence and Mars’ ambivalent and fluid desire in Gemini have hidden alchemical possibilities at the time of this New Moon…

 

The New Moon in Libra is all about relationships and renewing them. It may also set the seed for new relationships and marks the beginning of changes that will come gradually, as October progresses, and Venus will be conjunct the Sun for several days, thus improving even more relationships till the end of the month when we have the important Solar Eclipse on October the 25th.

For the time being, take advantage of the momentum of this Libra New Moon and set your intentions to have more harmony and balance in your life.

 

Wishing a wonderful New Moon to all of you!

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 16 APRIL 2022

The Full Moon in Libra on the 16th of April is clearly a moon that affects, influences, brings to a critical point and redefines or ends relationships.

It occurs in a mix of positive as well as intensely difficult aspects and so works completely differently based on the point at which it falls in your chart.

Why is this Full Moon a bit more about our relationships than others?

In astrology, every full moon is an act of balance.

It is the culmination of a process that begins with the New Moon and culminates with the Full Moon.

During the full moon period our needs are experienced more acutely and come to the fore in the light of the Sun. The challenge is to bring together what we need with our desires.

We are therefore challenged with this Full Moon to create a balance on the Libra – Aries axis. This is the very axis of relationships in Astrology, since Aries is associated to the self and Libra with togetherness.

With the Moon in the Sign of Libra we try to reconcile our emotions, and find harmonious balances in how we interact with others around us.

Directly opposite her, the Sun in Aries, our conscious self, projects our individuality into these emotions and vigorously advocates an “I” greater than the “We”.

With this Full Moon in Libra on April the 16th, balancing this pressure is something that demands a lot of work!

It requires painful dissections and looking in depth at relationship issues that have been hidden for quite some time. Issues that are now coming to the surface and calling us to see our own “Shadow”.

We need to work on our darker sides. To face head on our own conditioning, jealousy, manipulation, power plays and cruelty.

Our own dark moons of Pluto. The snakes that are slithering in the coveted Garden of Eden that we dream of for ourselves and our loved ones.

This is the T-Square that Pluto makes with the Full Moon and ONLY if we cast the Light of self-analysis on our Shadows can we emerge from the darkness, empowered and with relationships renewed.

This would be difficult to achieve especially for Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorns born in the last five days of their Sign and who are receiving most of the pressure.

The Full Moon occurs four days after the Jupiter and Neptune conjunction in Pisces. The Moon in Libra, in 150° degrees aspect to this conjunction, raises the very question of how we can again find inspiration and share a common dream with our partner, without losing ourselves at the same time.

Will we make it or will we sever the relationship permanently?


And Time – Saturn…

on one side comes to help, as it brings responsibility, accountability and truth in expressing our feelings when we have those important conversations.

But on the other side it brings, the burden of choice to ALL of us  as it will be squaring the Nodes of the Moon until late Fall, calling us to take our destiny into our own hands!

Take your time… think hard…

Speak your truth if tensions and discussions with your other half arise under this Moon.

Hopefully Mercury in conjunction to Uranus forms a very favorable sextile to Venus, and so conversations between you and your partner are favoured.


For those of you that are single, this Full Moon will stir up strong feelings of loneliness and the need to be in a relationship. It will leave a bittersweet feeling that something needs to change within you in how you approach and what you seek from a relationship.

It will be something like a psychoanalysis into the loneliness of longing for connection…

…and the shadows will be flickering on the wall of self-protection one erects when one is simply afraid to see oneself through the mirror of another’s eyes.

On a more positive note, the sextile that Uranus and Mercury make to Venus may, for those of you who single, provide opportunities for flirting and new acquaintances. Especially if you have personal planets at 11°- 14° degrees of Taurus, Pisces, Capricorn, Scorpio, Cancer, Leo, Aquarius.

This is a difficult Full Moon at the outset, but it will work supportively in the end I would like to believe. And that is because in yet another positive aspect, the two Lights, a few days after the Full Moon, will make beautiful aspects with Mars.

The Sun sextile to Mars, and the Moon trine to Mars, and so will be channelling the initial pressure of this Moon into decisions made mutually, into taking action, into refreshed vitality, or simply… into pure sexual passion!

I wish you all to manage the particularly intense energy of this Full Moon in Libra in the best possible way. To make the necessary incisions and to take the best possible decisions, for yourself first of all!

NEW MOON IN LIBRA

NEW MOON IN LIBRA



Request your Astrology Reading with Andrew Ifandis


NEW MOON IN LIBRA, OCTOBER 6 2021

By astrologer, Andrew Ifandis

The New Moon takes place at 13°25′ of Libra and affects us all, but especially Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn persons born in the first five days of the 2nd decan, as well as those of you who have personal planets or angles of your horoscope near the degrees 11°-15° of the above Signs.

The New Moon in Libra has a Karmic flair, with closing of cycles for those of you who are last-day Scorpios, or Libras born near the end of the 1st decan and the beginning of the 2nd decan. Karmic flair also for Sagittarius and Gemini persons born in the first days of their Sign.

 

Dynamism and Nerves

The energy of this New Moon is at first a dynamism. It is action, zest, enthusiasm, vitality. It is boldness, action, motivation towards a new beginning, which relates to the area of our horoscope, that is, the House in which the New Moon falls in our astrological chart.

But it is also a moon that brings impatience and excitement, so while it’s  important and positive to initially feel its momentum, it might also be good to understand that we need to temper it.

We need to temper it because Mercury is retrograde and conjunct planet Mars, an aspect that requires caution so that everything we do is well-thought and is seen from both sides. We need to be careful for misunderstandings or misinterpretations, as a result of impulsiveness and rush.

This Moon needs us to be alert for tempers, anger and tantrums since Uranus is in an inconjunct aspect to the two Lights and to planet Mars. An aspect of communication breakdown and sudden tensions.

It is an aspect expressing an incompatibility between how quickly we want to experience changes around us filled with excitement and momentum and how important it is we’ll be able to balance and communicate our wants and aspirations properly and harmoniously.

 

The opportunity this Moon presents

But on the other hand, this New Moon is a great opportunity because this inconjunct aspect is also something more. As Mercury is retrograde, moving towards Mars and Uranus, the aspect operates like a sudden blackout, where the power goes out, the lights go out, and we have a total reset of the system.

That’s exactly the opportunity to make a leap in consciousness, to overcome annoyances in relations, as well as entrenched behaviors in the way we communicate.

It is consolidation (Taurus), shaken by Uranus, after the necessary introspection of Mercury, about how we communicate harmoniously in our relationships (Libra), so that a new way (Uranus) of acting (Mars) and communicating harmoniously, is found.

It’s this new harmony that this Moon suddenly brings, I would say even better, this new perception of harmony in the area that is affecting your personal chart.


Request your Astrology Reading with Andrew Ifandis


Closing Cycles and Healing

It is also possible, that this New Moon in Libra will renew contacts with people from the past in an attempt to close wounds and traumas and bring a sense of vindication.

You see, the inconjunct aspect is considered a karmic one. As Mars and the Lights are in opposition to Chiron in Aries, and Mercury is retrograde in the sign of relationships, the sudden enlightenment caused by Uranus inconjunct, the new perception I mentioned earlier – this redefinition of relationships and attitudes, can be easily be expressed towards persons of our past in an attempt to close karmic cycles and find peace and tranquillity.

Any such past person contact will be temporary and short-lived, because it is caused by Uranus and because Venus, the planet ruling the New Moon, is conjunct the South Node and is Scorpio in an anaretic degree. Simply calling us to make one last, soul-searching, contact, prior we move forward towards the new, with optimism and enthusiasm.

 

Moving Forward

And forward we shall move after the tantrums, tensions and mental flash of this New Moon, since:

  • Pluto turns direct a few hours after the New Moon, thus completing months of psychological excavation and psychological cleansing,
  • Venus enters Sagittarius a day later, and we begin to relate more freely and casually,
  • Saturn also turns direct on October 11, supporting developments and diligence
  • and Jupiter and Mercury turn also direct on October 18, accelerating our moving forward with optimism.

 

I wish you to all to make the best use of this beautiful New Moon !!

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 19 APRIL 2019

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

Sharing is caring:

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.


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


 

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.

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 21 MARCH 2019

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

Sharing is caring:

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:

  • 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 LIBRA OCTOBER 2018

NEW MOON IN LIBRA OCTOBER 2018: Karmic, Transformative, Erotic

NEW MOON IN LIBRA OCTOBER 2018


The New Moon takes place at 15°48’ of the Sign of Libra. It mainly affects Libra and Aries 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.

Venus is moving retrograde in Scorpio and since it is the ruling planet of this New Moon, those of the Fixed Signs born in the first decan, will also intensely feel the energy of this lunation.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

 

New Moon in Libra occurs on the night of October the 8th or later on, from the early hours towards the morning of October the 9th, depending on which part of the world you live in.

Each New Moon brings something new.

It is a time of blending of our intentions and our emotions, a union that creates a feeling of completeness that fills us with excitement. It is a fresh start or a re-start.

 

When the New Moon falls in the Sign of Libra, communication and socializing is sparked up, since this is an Air Sign ruled by Venus, and social or personal relationships are the focus of attention.

When the Sun is in Libra, it is according to Traditional Astrology in the Sign of its fall. With the Sun here our ego is lessened, and it is willing to make the necessary compromises for the sake of others, because its goal is to experience union in relationships and what peaceful co-existence means.

The Moon, when in Libra, stirs within us the need to belong or the longing to be needed. The utmost need of the Moon here is to find a balance between inner peace and sharing with important others.


Every New Moon in Libra is a time where perfect mutual resonance of emotions between us and our closest persons may be experienced.


 

The Three Astrological Factors

This specific New Moon in Libra comes two weeks after a Full Moon in the Sign of Aries. Then it was a time where we experienced a difficult culmination of pent up and wounded emotions. A Dark Night of the Soul that held a promise for healing.

Now there is a potential for starting again.

If we examine the astrological chart of this New Moon we find that there are three astrological characteristics that when combined give to this lunation a unique nature.

New Moon in Libra October 2018

 


The first is that at the very time that this New Moon takes place, Venus, its ruling planet, is retrograde in the Sign of Scorpio.


This is something that has only happened twice in the past fifty years.

The first time was the New Moon on October the 30th 1970, when Venus was retrograde at 23°23’ of Scorpio, and the second was the New Moon on October the 7th 2010, when Venus was at the time stationary retrograde at Scorpio 13°13’.

Now, once again, the promise of this New Moon has a strong karmic feeling and is simultaneously charged with passionate eroticism.

Jealousy, possessiveness and retrospective moods affects the way that the Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) relate, especially those that which are born in the first decan.

 


The second is that the two Lights are in an applying square to Pluto in Capricorn.


Pluto is a planet that works in a deep psychological layer and this aspect brings desire for control and dominance that fuels up the obsessive way that Venus in Scorpio relates.

It is at the same time an aspect that holds the transformative potential of this New Moon. A transformation that is found in our ability to suppress manipulative behaviours, either they stem from ourselves or coming from others, and to instead share deep connection and deepen our emotional bond.

 


The third is that the New Moon in Libra vibes with erotic intensity.


Venus is playing an important role for this New Moon since it is its ruling planet.

Retrograde and within the Scorpio part of the Via Combusta, Venus expresses love in its most introverted, relates in a martyred way, and is intrigued by Mars male assertion.

Venus when in Scorpio is ruled by Mars, according to traditional astrology, and in this New Moon, Venus is at the same time in an applying aspect to Mars in Aquarius. This is a double astrological affinity that reinforces the connection of the two planets. It is an aspect that combines passive romance with unconventional desire.

It is pure animal magnetism, sexually charged.

 


All these factors combined together make this New Moon in Libra to have, an intense, karmic, erotic and transformative effect.

What may happen under this New Moon and depending on where it falls in your personal chart?

  • Past unrequited loves may re-kindle and what had not been in the past to be now.
  • Past lovers may re-appear and depending on our past experience we may choose to give them a second chance or to completely give up the whole idea. Yes… the past is a strange place.
  • The potential for a new transforming relationship is strong especially if Venus or the New Moon falls on the 5th, 7th or 8th house of your personal horoscope.
  • Interactions and conversations fraught with sexual tension are to be expected especially if Venus or the New Moon falls on the 5th or 8th house of your chart.
  • Existing relationships undergo a period of re-examination. Remember, a loving relationship should share the Libra ideals of balance and fairness and not to be jealous and possessive (Venus in Scorpio Rx).
  • Power plays and manipulation the Scorpio way are brought to the surface and they either stop and the relationship is refreshed, or the split occurs and we move on to the next one.

 

The Epilogue is the New Beginning

There is one more aspect that works very positively. Mars from Aquarius is making a trine to the Sun and the Moon in Libra.

This is an aspect that channels the prominence of the Air element of the chart, clears our mind and counter-balances the darker Venusian intensity

It gives energy and a more detached expression to our will and our feelings and moves us towards new beginnings.

 

This New Moon in Libra is our attempt to restart after the Dark Night of the Soul.

It may bring something new or refresh existing relationships as long as

  • we understand the past,
  • we rationalize our desires,
  • and are not afraid to burn what’s old, if that’s necessary.

 

I wish everyone an erotic New Moon!

VENUS RETROGRADE IN SCORPIO 2018

VENUS RETROGRADE IN SCORPIO 2018

Sharing is caring:

VENUS RETROGRADE IN SCORPIO 2018


Venus the planet of Love and Beauty will be retrograde, initially within the Sign of Scorpio and later on towards the end of its retrograde motion, within the Sign of Libra, affecting Scorpio, Taurus, Leo and Aquarius Signs that are born in the first decan, as well as Libra, Aries, Cancer and Capricorn Signs that are born in the last days of their Sign.

The Aesthetics of Retrograde

Andy Warhol, in his painting “Details of Renaissance Paintings, Botticelli, Birth of Venus”, is re-visiting Botticelli’s Venus and re-paints her with pop aesthetics in order to comment on the commercialization of the ideal of Love, the superficiality of being vain and to make the viewer stop and ponder on the notions of “relating” and “beauty”.

That is exactly what Planet Venus is callings us to do while in its retrograde period. It triggers a process of re-evaluation of our own self-worth, our own internal beauty. We are called to re-assess the expectations we have from others and at the same time to see how it is that we ourselves relate.

 

Venus retrograde October – November 2018

Venus, the planet of Love is going to turn retrograde on October the 5th from 10°50’ degrees of Scorpio.

During her retrograde course Venus will appear to move backwards in the night sky, and shall gradually retreat within the sign of Libra on November the 1st. There its retrograde motion will continue until November the 16th when it will finally station direct at 25°15’ of the Libra Sign, before moving direct again.

This is a two thirds journey of backtracking in Scorpio and one third in Libra.

Within Scorpio Venus expresses with the deepest of feelings and fixates on intense pleasure. It demands core bonding with other persons, infuses romance with sex and our connections with deep meaning.

For the period that Venus will be retrograde within the Scorpio, expressions of love will be mostly introvert and will be intrigued by Mars male assertion, Mars being the ruling planet of Scorpio in traditional Astrology.


Venus retrograde in Scorpio is

the smoldering desire of a subdued and submissive romanticism.


Only when the planet enters Libra the feeling will change. Venus will still need to belong but will adopt a lighter mentality in the process of re-evaluating how she relates, seeking more balance in relationships and now capable of seeing the other side.

 

The Karmic Effect

The very symbolism of Venus moving backwards means that a person from the past may re-appear. If this is the case, it only happens for a reason.

We must “remember” the relationship we have had with this person in the past, what it meant then and what it means now, for our present and for any existing relations or commitments.

We are called to redefine this relation with the past person in a clear and karmic – free way.

 

Venus in Retrospective Mood

During this forty days Venus retrograde period we turn inwards and wonder:

  • What is that we want from a relationship and from our partner?
  • Do we want to be in a relationship just only for the sake of not being alone?
  • Which are the motivations and our deepest desires?
  • Can we strip away layers of jealousy or control and reach again down to the core of the feelings?
  • Is our relationship superficial, pop and “appearances-only”, lacking meaningful deepest sharing?
  • Are we appreciated as much as we deserve?
  • Do we re-return appreciation and value our partner?

The very nature of these questions, whether we are in a relationship or not, concerns first and most to ourselves and while it mainly relates to love relations it also touches, one to one partnerships, business relations and our socializing in general.

All these questions is a necessary part in this process of introspection that clears out situations, makes us feel better with ourselves and prepares us or a more sociable period when Venus will be again direct.

FULL MOON IN ARIES SEPTEMBER 2018

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

Sharing is caring:

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.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

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.”

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER JULY 2018

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER – JULY 2018: Long Hot Summer – Part One

Sharing is caring:

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER – JULY 2018

This summer is marked by three eclipses and many planets being retrograde during the eclipse season. The combination of these astrological factors is something that is relatively rare and it shapes an unpredictable, dynamic and hot landscape.


This particular eclipse is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Cardinal Cross (Cancer and Capricorn mainly, as well as Aries, and Libra) and who are born between April 8 – 12, July 11 – 15, October 11 – 15 and January 8 – 12.  Also to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 18° – 22° degrees of these Signs.


PERSONAL ECLIPSE READING

 

Long Hot Summer – Part One

The Solar Eclipse of July 13th is the first of the three eclipses of this summer’s eclipse season. It occurs in the Sign of Cancer, and is followed by a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius and yet one Solar Eclipse in Leo.

In a sense, it is a first taste of events that will manifest. Events whose impact we will intensely experience, and surely, events that will concern us for the whole duration of the summer, if not for much longer.

An example that easily demonstrates the secular influence that this Solar Eclipse in Cancer might have, not alone, but combined and operating as a triad with the other two that follow it, is:

 

Issues that relate to homeland (Cancer), cause reactions and peaked collective and political expression (Aquarius), that in its turn, triggers rapid developments regarding leadership figures (Leo).

 

Does this sound familiar? Is it relating to where you live?

 


This eclipse is also the first of a series of eclipses that will continue to occur in the Cancer – Capricorn axis, following on for the next two years, up until the summer of 2020 when their cycle will be completed.

The Solar Eclipse of 13th of July takes place in Cancer and so it has to do with family, maternity, home. It has to do with the feeling of warmth and security.

It happens just one day after Jupiter has turned again direct, at a point when we have just concluded an introspective cycle regarding issues of faith and morality.

The events of this eclipse may exactly unsettle this newly formed moral attitude.

 

A difficult landscape gradually shapes 

This Solar Eclipse is unfortunately characterized by a very difficult aspect, since the two Lights are forming an opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. A sharp opposition aspect that is only 40’ minutes away from being exact and so it has strength.


Pluto is already retrograde and the excavation of our soul has already begun. Pluto’s retrograde period is usually felt as a psychological process that seeks regeneration, purification and survival.


Taboo issues, embarrassing or repressed urges, oppressed sexual desires, may have come to the surface as a result of this process.

As a result, Pluto in opposition to the eclipse, may cause violent emotional outbursts, behaviors that have a strong element of manipulation, oppression which we are receiving from others or that we, because of our strong will and our mental strength, are causing to others.

Some examples of how this important eclipse aspect could affect us, always depending on the areas of our personal horoscope where it falls, are:

  • Passions and egoism that we cannot avoid, affect relationships and partnerships in a negative way.
  • Strong emotional stress from issues that relate to our mother (health or other).
  • Strong envy and effort for control of the relationship from the person we are with, or the complete contrary, jealousy and effort to enforce ourselves is expressed by us towards the other person.
  • Conflicts with persons in power and unexpected developments in the workplace prevent our much desired advancement and as a consequence create pressure within the family.
  • Consuming passion causes emotional and existential pressure on our family life.
  • Power games appear in our relationship as a result of our need for recognition.
  • Loss of a loved one.

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER JULY 2018

 

In addition to the Pluto aspect, another element that causes increased tension, is the planet Mars that is retrograde in Aquarius and towards a conjunction to the South Node.

The tension is internal and stems from the strong desire to defend our personal concept of independence. Anger or aggression boils within. It is a tension that can break out suddenly.

Here it is helpful to have in mind that Mars is conjunct the South Node in Aquarius. This conjunction means that if there is something that keeps us back, not allowing evolution, then this is a misunderstood concept about freedom and individuality.

If our actions aim only at an unnecessary rebellion just for the sake of it (South Node to Aquarius), then any outburst will be in vain.

Instead, what we are called to do, is our actions to be characterized by a mature understanding of what independence means. Although it is freedom of action, it has nevertheless to be accompanied by responsibility and creative leadership (North Node in Leo).

 

This is a difficult eclipse, like the subsequent ones within this long, hot summer.

The Eclipse booms, and occurs in an environment of four planets being retrograde (Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto).


What can help us in this dry landscape that we see shaping in front of us?

Where can we find shade as we trudge under the hot sun and where can we cool with some water?


 

In order of duration and importance, the astrological aspects that may help are:

The trine between Venus and Uranus (July 8 – July 16)

A beautiful trine, lasting almost for a week, from July 8th to July 16th, and which allows a degree of freedom in our relationships, especially in matters that concern practical issues and issues of material security.

We leave space to the other person, we enjoy opportunities for being more social and, above all, we are open to mind-sets different from our aesthetics and from what we usually like.

 

The trine between Venus and Saturn (July 10 – July 19)

This is an aspect that gives the necessary maturity and patience in relationships.

We have realistic goals for economic and emotional issues.

Collaborations and relationships are prestigious and serious, as we both set common goals (Capricorn), and we are predisposed to serve our common ground, sparing minor details and meaningless criticism. (Virgin)

 

The trine between Saturn and Uranus (It lasts all summer)

This is the most helpful of all the aspects, since it allows us to manage the changes and the sudden events that can result from the eclipse, in a responsible manner.

It gives a relative stability within the changing landscape, PROVIDED that we take good advantage of Saturn’s retrograde movement and we do the necessary self-criticism so as to understand:

  • If and where we are oppressive
  • Which are our limits, and
  • We begin to formulate an awareness of our responsibility.

 

So let’s arm ourselves with patience and endurance, because the summer is long and we have yet two difficult eclipses to go through.
