An important and very special sextile aspect between Venus and Mars occurs on March 11, 2023.

Venus is the archetype of beauty, of what we like, how likeable we feel and also how much we are liked. Mars is the libido of desire, lust and masculine principle and has opportunities with this meeting as Mars claims her, wants her and is ready to take the initiative to make her his.

An aspect of erotic passion but also a creative aspect since harmony is combined with action and thus the creation is born as the fruit of the union of the two sexual archetypes Venus and Mars.

How wonderful you will remark so it is possible to meet someone or someone, to feel the attraction or to indulge in the charm that someone or someone exerts on us.

 

YES… but not ONLY THOSE and not THAT EXACTLY…

Looking synthetically and in its entirety at how the cycle of the two planets moves I notice some very specific characteristics.

While Mars and Venus formed aspects to each other six times(!) in 2022, their sextile on March 11 will be their third in a row in 2023… and their next aspect will again be a sextile but… almost a year(!) from today and specifically on February 22, 2024!

What does this mean?

And why is it happening…?

 

Aside from the fact that the weeks just before and after Valentine’s Day in 2024 will be erotic, in the present and for 2023 it means that until then… the two planets will NOT come into an exact Ptolemaic aspect.

This is because as Venus will begin to approach Mars to conjunction, it will reach within five degrees of Mars in early July when both planets will be in Leo, and there she will once again begin to move away from him as Mars will gain speed while Venus will instead further reduce hers, until she turns retrograde on July 22, 2023.

So it’s as if she is turning her back on him, as if she is hesitant to go, as if she is at that time having second thoughts or just wants to take her time to better assess the situation.

But she doesn’t let him but rather takes her time, does her re-calculation and after turning direct she begins to form a prolonged sextile with him between about September 10th and October 10th 2023.

A sextile which will be NEARLY formed as the two planets approach within 1 degree of each other, but which will NOT FINALLY be EXACT, until four more months will pass and we arrive on February 22, 2024!

It’s as if the two lovers want to be together, or are already together, just that something is still not working the way they want it to, something is not exactly the way Venus wants it to be, or something is not the way Mars wants it to be.

What does it all mean?

SINGLE ONES
New relationships that you make in the coming weeks have a very good chance of developing but will go through a period of revision in the summer before finally smoothing out gradually in September-October.

IN A RELATIONSHIP
If you are considering the next step this can be taken, just be prepared for “ups and downs” until you both feel equally prepared/ready. Generally this is a time when the relationship will deepen further after first going through a period of necessary work on yourselves.

IF YOU WANT TO RECONNECT
For those of you who have broken up and are considering a reunion the next few days through March 16 are ideal. After that things get more difficult until July when Venus retrograde will bring possibilities again.


NOTE: Naturally all of the above are general and are based only on the Venus/Mars cycle which I have presented, and do NOT take into account your personal horoscope in which there will be various other astrological factors, some positive and some negative, which should be studied, especially since we are talking about a movement between Venus and Mars which unfolds over a period of several months.

But… you get the general idea!

FULL MOON IN VIRGO 7 MARCH 2023

The Full Moon takes place at 16° 40′ of the Sign of Virgo. It strongly affects Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius, Taurus, Capricorn, Scorpio, and Cancer Signs, who are born near the middle of the second decan.

It also affects those of you who have personal planets, Ascendant or Midheaven at degrees 13° – 19° of the above signs.


 

A difficult and separative Full Moon, which is once again crucial for relationships, takes place on March 7 in the sign of Virgo.

Each Full Moon brings to light tensions that have been bottled up and stirs up our emotions. It is a time of culmination of events and situations.

If we look at the Full Moon chart the first thing that strikes us is that the Moon is located alone in the sign of Virgo, lonely and withdrawn, with all the other planets in the opposite hemisphere of the chart. A formation that emphasizes the tension that can arise in the relationships of those directly affected by this Full Moon since it is the emotions and psyche that are the main focus.

The Moon in Virgo causes us to analyze how we feel. Feelings are put through the filter; everything is categorized and scrutinized. Every need is rationalized and analyzed.

We do this, not in an attempt to deny and distance ourselves from our feelings, but instead in an attempt to figure out how what we are feeling can serve us on a practical level.

 


Opposite her, in the vastness of Pisces, the Sun and Neptune are conjunct. The ultimate ideal. Dream and creativity, imagination and intoxication, idealization and ego transcendence. Excessive idealism and selflessness.

But at the same time, Neptune in opposition to the Moon creates deceptive emotions. It creates illusions, and tendencies to escape. Excessive sentimentality and needs mixed with guilt.

Moon opposes Mercury and emotions are vague, double, and changing. Our hearts want one thing, and our minds say another, and while the heart yearns for the dream it is stuck in the mundane environment of everyday life…

At the same time, thoughts are confused and full of on-criticism and find it difficult to believe in the Dream.

Instead of judging with clarity the Moon on the contrary becomes more confused and cannot get out of the mental mazes.

This lack of Faith results from the very difficult position Mars has in the chart of this Full Moon.

Out of Bounds, within Gemini, it is square to the Full Moon. Tension, nervousness, selfishness, agitation are prevalent, and caution is needed in what we say and how we say it.

Mars is ruled by Mercury in Pisces, which is ruled by Neptune, a Neptune which is in opposition to the Moon and square to Mars. Chaos and confusion! Sharp harsh words, dilemmas. Illusions and disappointments, and inability to act as nothing seems clear.

Venus is in detriment in Aries having just left a conjunction aspect with Jupiter and Chiron and while in love, she’s also quite feisty. In her quincunx to the Moon, she should be willing to heal wounds, but because she is in detriment and ruled by Mars it is easiest for her to escalate the tension and bring on ruptures.

 


The romantic (Venus) seems incompatible with the practical issues that arise. Love is hurt by Mars square the Full Moon, and eroticism is castrated by the inability to discern.

Venus’ sextile to Mars is the only positive aspect that can work and reignite the spark, but Mars is out of bounds and with difficult aspects.

And Uranus, in sextile to the Sun and trine to the Moon, while under other conditions could function by bringing renewal of emotion and opportunities for change, under the existing ones, as ruled by Venus in debility, intensifies deliverance through reaction, opposition, rebellion or even final separation, which feels like redemption.

Saturn in the very last minute of the Aquarius Zodiac at 29°59′, at the very last minute of the anaeretic degree, and also in trine and sextile to the Nodes of the Moon, speaks of a definitive closing of cycles which nevertheless aim to move us forward.

This Full Moon in Virgo will be a test for relationships will be DECISIVE and CRITICAL.

Hopefully with Saturn entering Pisces, the maturity will be again found to make your dreams for you and your partner come true.

Yes, this Full Moon in Virgo will shake us up, confuse us, make us feel regret and guilt. It will affect our relationships as any Full Moon does. Foggy, nervous, and difficult.

Under this Moon… try to draw on your reserve of patience, and work with a willingness to work things for the best, for you and your loved ones.

 

Until the next Moon…

Wishing all health and peace of mind.

The New Moon in Capricorn is a positive moon for everyone.

Very positive for TAURUS, VIRGO, CAPRICORN, SCORPIO, and PISCES persons born in the very first days of their Sign, or those of you who have personal planets or angles in your Horoscope near the degrees 0°-or 14°-18° of the above Zodiac signs.

Positive also for ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA persons born in the very first days of their Sign, or those of you who have personal planets or angles in your Horoscope near the degrees 0°- of the above Zodiac signs.

As well as for ARIES, GEMINI, LEO, AQUARIUS, and SAGITTARIUS persons born in the very last days of their Sign, or those of you who have personal planets or angles in your Horoscope near the degrees 28°-29°59’ of the above Zodiac signs.


Finally, a beautiful New Moon happens two days before Christmas on December 23rd. It is a Moon which takes place at 1°32′ of CAPRICORN and it holds a lot of potential!

Like all New Moons, this one too is a seed of a new beginning, a fresh start or something new appearing in the area of your horoscope in which it happens.

With the New Moon in the sign of CAPRICORN this seed is practical in nature and is blessed with a long-term perspective. Anything that begins now will have a solid foundation and the potential to grow even more and have great boom.

Naturally with a New Moon in CAPRICORN our professional matters and ambitions are favored. It is an ideal time to set new goals, organize plans about practical matters and deal with anything new in a serious, organized and responsible manner.

But this New Moon holds yet more opportunities and brings success in what we want to start for two additional reasons.

The first is that it takes place at 01° of CAPRICORN, that is, it occurs at an initial degree of the Zodiac, and thus brings with it an energy of freshness, combined with impulse and practicality.

The second reason is that the planet Jupiter is not just at an initial degree but at 0° degree of ARIES, the very first degree of the entire Zodiac!

This New Moon is not just a beginning, but a completely New Beginning and a completely new cycle for each and every one of you depending on the area that Jupiter rules in your Horoscope and the area in which it is currently in.

In fact, it is very likely that the first signs of this beginning appeared as initial ideas, first encounter with a person, or first considerations to do something, from May 10 to May 20, 2022 when Jupiter was again in these same degrees.

Full of blessings and possibilities everything that begins under this New Moon with Jupiter powerful at 0° degree of ARIES but also in a square aspect to the two Lights.

All you need is to act carefully, organized and with faith in yourself, having first measured the risks and without haste. The seed planted now needs patience and perseverance, but it will yield plentiful rewards.

Capricorn is the Sign of the Material Plane, as I have written before, and therefore this New Moon also hides many possibilities for manifesting your intentions. On a purely energetic level, visualize, set practical intentions, have faith in your abilities, and dare to fearlessly take the first steps in order to see these intentions made manifest during the next 6 months.

The sextile that NEPTUNE in PISCES makes to MERCURY in CAPRICORN is an aspect that can make dreams come true, give us inspiration that is directed at practical issues, as well as the necessary alignment of the intellect with the universal, so that we can see beyond material intentions and feel the quintessence of our ambition at the level of the soul.

Uranus from TAURUS in a trine to VENUS in CAPRICORN is the aspect, which for those of you who belong to the Earth signs and have personal planets or your Ascendant between 14°-18° degrees, helps to make a new relationship, an acquaintance or further open your social circle with this New Moon.

It’s an ideal aspect for social gatherings and brings a measured yet needed renewal to friendships and social life as well as refreshment to existing relationships.

One more positive aspect of this New Moon is the sextile aspect formed between the planet MARS, which is retrograde in the sign of GEMINI, and CHIRON in the sign of ARIES. It is an aspect which provides opportunities to heal wounds from verbal conflicts, tensions and frustration that were caused by the previous Full Moon in GEMINI, which has distressed many of you.

Now is the time to make a fresh start with a conciliatory mood and a shift from the aggressive arguments of the previous period, to comforting conversations, and in the case of couples, to healing… sex!

Especially if we see this aspect combined with the URANUS – VENUS aspect, it brings renewal, encouragement and a restart.

There is no negative aspect to the NEW MOON in CAPRICORN and with MERCURY conjunct VENUS, it is a moon that will give us the much-needed peace, harmony, joy, sociability and sweetness to make the festive days of Christmas and New Year beautiful!

 

Wishing a wonderful New Moon to each and every one of you!

NEW MOON IN SCORPIO 28 OCTOBER 2019

NEW MOON IN SCORPIO 28 OCTOBER 2019: One Hundred Fifty Trine

Sharing is caring:

NEW MOON IN SCORPIO 28 OCTOBER 2019


The New Moon takes place at 04°25’ of the Sign of Scorpio. It mainly affects Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius persons, who are born in the first decan, as well as for those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 02° – 06° degrees of the Signs mentioned.

The New Moon also affects the Signs of the Cardinal Cross (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), of the second decan and near 15° degree, or those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 13° – 17° degrees of the Cardinal Signs.

A New Moon that causes explosive situations, anger, separations, deceptive allure, and idealizations of lovers, is taking place on the night of October the 27th or the 28th, depending on where in the world you stand as you look at the sky.

It is a mix of incompatible and contradictory energies, this Moon, that takes place at 4° 25’ of the Sign of Scorpio.

 

New Moon in Scorpio

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

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

Each New Moon in Scorpio combines emotional depth with strong will and thus becomes a source of psychological strength.


With this particular New Moon in Scorpio, however, this strength is expressed rather suddenly, rather unexpectedly, and brings tension to that area of our life that is indicated by the House in which it falls on our horoscope.


 

Uranus in opposition to the New Moon

Planet Uranus is almost precisely in an opposition to the New Moon, so all of the Scorpio’s emotional intensity and need for transformation makes us excited, restless, needing our independence and fills us with nervousness.

Anything that is not as we would want and would desire, fills us with frustration. We want the world and now we want it now, in an expression of intense determination that comes out jerkily.

Especially the opposition of Uranus to the Sun brings rebelliousness, strong independence and a need to escape from manipulative and emotionally complex relationships.

Attention is needed, because this electrically charged New Moon brings tensions to the area that activates in our horoscope, brings abrupt changes that surprise us, emotional coldness, cracks in relationships or even breakups.

 

Mars Square Saturn

As if this isn’t enough, Mars from Libra makes a difficult square to Saturn in Capricorn. An aspect that intensifies the situation, acting as a slow wick that will eventually trigger the explosive power that is contained in this New Moon.

Anger, repressed egoism, a feeling that “we cannot”, are possible manifestations of this square.

We have to exert more effort to keep up the pretenses since we are unable to find a subtler way to address the issues. We feel frustration.

It is a very dynamic aspect that makes us unable to keep our patience, brings low libido, repressed passions. It is an aspect that may even bring conflict with the law and other forms of authority.

 

Mars inconjunct Neptune

This, in my opinion, is the worst aspect of this New Moon.

Mars, already in a square to Saturn, is simultaneously inconjunct to Neptune. The blockage of energy meets the false expectations. Fallen libido is channeled to idealism.

Mars in Libra is indecisive and as square to Saturn, is oppressed and unable to react to the spell that Neptune brings. Love, instead of being externalized, becomes not expressed, and here lies the risk of frustration.

Passion may light up for a while, but in this environment of pressure, and with so many false expectations, in its best will bring meaningless sexual intercourse, which will drain us psychologically, and in its worst will bring unrequited love and desires that border on the “unhealthy”.

 

Neptune Sextile Saturn

This is the only helpful aspect of this New Moon, an aspect that closes the formation of the Learning Trine that this chart has. An aspect formation between Saturn, Mars, and Neptune, that hides a small lesson.

It is an aspect that comes as a continuation of the anger/pressure of the Mars – Saturn square, and the frustration that the disappointment of the Mars – Neptune inconjunct.

The learning process is completed only after the pressure and the frustration, as we are now learning to begin from a more realistic base and to have faith in our potential.

The sooner we overcome the first two phases of the formation, and the more quickly we absorb the learning, the better it is.

Where we have to pay attention

As you see, this New Moon in Scorpio requires special attention as it brings either tension or energy loss.

Especially the Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) of the first decan, as well as the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) of the second decan, should watch out, because this New Moon may:

  • relate to unexpected events that challenge what is familiar.
  • bring tensions that will shake their emotional security and their love life.
  • cause rash and unthoughtful reactions.
  • exaggerate any feelings of oppression and weight felt in our relationships, and trigger a rethinking of “how” and “why” we are with the other person.
  • create foggy situations and mistaken expectations, either erotically or sexually, resulting in frustration and spending of energy.
  • bring tensions, anger, and crises that will lead to breakups and separations.

So, having the necessary patience to remain polite, to be diplomatic, to be less reactive and more compromising, are the only ways to avoid the tensions.

Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces Signs are less affected by the energy of the New Moon, but nevertheless, they also have to be careful:

  • for viruses,
  • And to not be left on the delusional charm of temporary eroticism. Or even if they do, at least to know what is happening to them and why they do it.

 

Postscript

This New Moon at a mundane level is likely to coincide with explosions, military clashes, aggressive actions (already being prepared for Syria), and the usage of chemical weapons.

 

In any case, it is an intense New Moon, one that we astrologers are not happy to analyze, with a very intense Scorpio flair, as you will come to experience it, and which, sooner or later…

…shall pass.

NEW MOON IN VIRGO 30 AUGUST 2019

NEW MOON IN VIRGO 30 AUGUST 2019: A Love Play In Three Acts – Act Three

Sharing is caring:

NEW MOON IN VIRGO 30 AUGUST 2019


The New Moon takes place at 06°46’ of the Sign of Virgo. It is very positive for Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, and Scorpio persons, who are born in the first decan of their Sign, as well as for those of you that are having personal planets, points or your Ascendant, near the 04° – 08° degrees of the Signs mentioned.


The stage has been set with the two previous lunations, where the planet Venus played a key role in each one. At the beginning of the month with the New Moon in Leo, Venus was close to the two Lights and in a square with planet Uranus, bringing excitement and challenges in our love life and personal relations.

Two weeks later with the Full Moon in Aquarius, Venus was in it superior conjunction to the Sun, highlighting issues of relating, helping us to reshape our values and the very sense of who or what really worths we deem valuable.

Now, an amorous, erotic, creative but also cathartic and enterprising New Moon in Virgo is taking place on August the 30th.

Act Three – NEW MOON IN VIRGO

Each New Moon is a beginning, a reset, a new awareness.

When the New Moon is in the Sign of Virgo then it is a time to start again paying attention to the practical and that which best serves us. Virgo is a Sign that can build a completely new world out of the most ordinary things.

It can create meaning just by the mere repetition of a habit or a ritual.

Whether it is the repeated moves that weave cloth, the sewing of haute couture, our daily nutrition program followed with reverence, or the repetition of a Yoga posture, it is the small and the finest that defines us.

Now in this specific New Moon, which as all New Moons in Virgo is perfect for beginning a daily routine, health practice, attend to any details, planet Venus once more plays a major role.

Venus that in its participation to the two previous lunations challenged our love life and questioned what it is that is valuable.

Now, in this New Moon, Venus is conjunct the Two Lights and is also conjunct to Mars and asks the complete question:


Who and what, really worths for us to deem as

valuable (Venus conjunct Sun and Moon),

desirable (Venus conjunct Mars)

and useful (Virgo)… all at the same time.


And through this question, it is that this practical and earthy New Moon comes to relate to our love life and to important others.

 

Venus Conjunct Mars

On the 24th of August, planet Venus made its conjunction to Mars at 04°07’ Virgo. A meeting of two lovers that happens every two years or twice a year when Venus is retrograde.

Just a few days prior to this New Moon, the fusion was made. The Woman and the Man merged in one. Desire mingled with Sensuality. Love met Passion. Beauty, Boldness, Libido, and Charm sparked, as the two lovers came together on the clean white sheets of the Virgo love bed.

This is the energy that infuses this New Moon. Erotic and cathartic at the same time as this New Moon marks the beginning of New Loves, New Loves that come as a result of previous experiences and most importantly out of an understanding of what is in our best interest.

 

Let us see the interaction between all the actors on this final act…

NEW MOON IN VIRGO 30 AUGUST 2019

 

Mars is conjunct the New Moon (The tightest aspect in the chart)

This is an aspect that favors action, gives courage, makes us bold, make us act towards the realizations of the New Moon. This is a New Moon that favors new starts and enterprises. It only requires that we do it by following a plan, as Mars is in the meticulous Virgo, and to be a little cautious not to act in a hasty or impulsive way, (Mars conjunct Moon and Sun).

 

Mercury conjunct the New Moon and Mars.

The ruler of the New Moon, planet Mercury in its exaltation, analytical and attentive to finest detail can make miracles in all practical matters, and in its conjunction with Mars, makes this New Moon ideal for setting plans and goals.

In personal matters, the sexual impulse of Mars does not blind our judgment as Mercury analyses the why and how of the erotic desire and demands healthy relationships and clean words.

 

Saturn Trines the Virgo Stellium

Saturn from the Sign of Capricorn at 14°11’ is making trine aspects to all actors (Venus, Mars, Sun, Moon), bringing ambition, stability to any new endeavors that start now, and careful planning to projects.

In personal matters, it brings respect and commitment to relationships, dedication, and loyalty.

 

Uranus Trines the Virgo Stellium

Uranus from the Sign of Taurus at 06°28’ is making a trine aspect to Mercury, Sun, Moon, Mars, and Venus. This is the necessary ingenuity in artistic creation or the excitement in the new love affair, it is the freedom of expression in new relations or partnerships, it is boldness and uniqueness in new startups.

Planet Uranus lifts high up, the well thought out us getting into a relationship, or a meticulously organized business plan and transforms them into a new and exciting adventure.


Request your Astrology Reading with Andrew Ifandis


This New Moon combines realizations, careful thought, and planning. It combines erotic desire with practical feelings of love. Creativity with a willingness for work. It is charming, practical, cathartic and original, and therefore it:

  • brings completely new love affairs that have long term potential,
  • allows us to enter, after the necessary thought, into ones that first appeared the previous weeks,
  • brings feelings of catharsis since we, after mature analysis, now understand where we stand in relations,
  • is ideal for starting up new business projects, and for professional advancement,
  • can be the perfect time to announce planned decisions (like marriage vows or wedding dates),
  • or to make decisions that relate to health nutrition and our everyday routine,
  • is very good for creative events that relate to Vogue, Fashion, Photography – Neptune is opposite the Venus-Mars conjunction,
  • is the perfect time to express our love interest to someone we care for, and he \ she does not know it.

 

I wish all of you to enjoy this really good New Moon and to allow its energy to invigorate you.

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.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is about to end.

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

This is about to end.

 

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 19 APRIL 2019

The chart is difficult.

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

This too, is about to end.

 

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

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

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

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

 

Picture the movement of the planets.

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

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

That is what this Full Moon wants from us.

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

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

Be prepared, be firm.

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

NEW MOON IN ARIES 2019

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

Sharing is caring:

NEW MOON IN ARIES 2019


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


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

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

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


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


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

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

This New Moon in Aries is Chapter Number One.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NEW MOON IN ARIES APRIL 5 2019

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

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

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

The rush with which we want to act is pressing us all the more. We are deeply in need of breaking into the new, and in our hurry to do it quickly, we become impatient.

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

Patience is needed…

Fortunately,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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


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

 

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

 

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

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 21 MARCH 2019

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

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:


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


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

 

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

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS 7 DECEMBER 2018

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS 7 DECEMBER 2018: The Great Gatsby

Sharing is caring:

 

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS 7 DECEMBER 2018


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


GET YOUR OWN READING!

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

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

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


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

– F. Scott Fitzgerald, “The Great Gatsby”


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

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

a. Excitement and Exaggeration.

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

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

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

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

b. Seductive Intoxication

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

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


This Mars – Neptune conjuction is like a seducing smile.


NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS 7 DECEMBER 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

3. Independence and expenses

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

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

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

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

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

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

Epilogue

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

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

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

 

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

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

Gatsby did not manage to make it sober.

We can.

 

I wish you all to have a fantastic New Moon.

FULL MOON IN 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.”
