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

NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 4 FEBRUARY 2019


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


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

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

 

A new Moon in the Sign of Aquarius

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

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

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

This New Moon is like the building of a Cathedral.

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

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

 NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 4 FEBRUARY 2019 GR

 

The net of aspects and opportunities

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 4 FEBRUARY 2019 GR

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

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

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

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

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

Mars trine Jupiter spurs us into action with fervent zeal.

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

 

Epilogue

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

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

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

 

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

The eclipse at a cosmic level

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

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

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

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

 

The two January eclipses combined.

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

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

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

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

or

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

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

Lunar Eclipse in Leo 21 January

 

Cosmic Level – Anatomy of the Aspects

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

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

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

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

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

Vision of the days to come

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

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

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

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

Coming Full Circle

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

The Theme of the Eclipse – Individual Level

 

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

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

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

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


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

 

This will of course not be easy.

Lunar Eclipse in Leo 21 January

 

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

It is an eclipse that brings electrifying tension.

 

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

Anton Chekhov

 

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

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

With sudden outbursts of emotions or reactions.

 

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

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

 


But the chart of the eclipse is not only tension.

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

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

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

FULL MOON IN CANCER 22 DECEMBER 2018

FULL MOON IN CANCER 22 DECEMBER 2018: Brief Repose

FULL MOON IN CANCER 22 DECEMBER 2018


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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


A role model for success

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Excitement and change

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

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

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

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

 

FULL MOON IN CANCER 22 DECEMBER 2018

How it all comes together.

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

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

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


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


This Full Moon in Cancer is in one sentence:

 “HOME,

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

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


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


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

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

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

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS 7 DECEMBER 2018

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS 7 DECEMBER 2018: The Great Gatsby

 

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS 7 DECEMBER 2018


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

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

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

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


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 TAURUS OCTOBER 2018: Unsettled Stability

FULL MOON IN TAURUS OCTOBER 2018


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

The proximity of the Full Moon to the last degrees of the Cardinal Cross affects also Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn persons that are born in the last 2 days of their Sign, or those hose having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 28°-29° degrees of the Cardinal Cross.

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

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

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

 

A Full Moon in Taurus

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

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

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

 

The Pent-up Emotions

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

FULL MOON IN TAURUS OCTOBER 2018

The Disruptive Challenge for Relations

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

The Triggering of the Next Eclipse

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

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

 

Unsettling of Stability

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

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

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

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

 

However, high tension remains in the air.

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

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

NEW MOON IN VIRGO- 9 SEPTEMBER 2018

NEW MOON IN VIRGO- 9 SEPTEMBER 2018: Gifted Perfection

NEW MOON IN VIRGO- 9 SEPTEMBER 2018


The New Moon takes place in 17°and 00’ of the perfectionist Sign of Virgo. It strongly affects Virgo and Pisces Signs and also Gemini and Sagittarius Signs which are born in the second decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 15° -19° degrees of the Mutable Cross. The strong Earth Element and Water Element of this New Moon also affects all Water and Earth Signs.

On the 9th of September a New Moon is taking place in the Sign of Virgo.

The New Moon falls exactly on the 17° degree (that means 17° 00’), something that, if we symbolically think about it, is extraordinarily suitable to the love for precision that the Virgo Sign has. As if this was not enough the 17th degree of the mutable signs is what in astrology called, a critical degree, and planets placed here are emphasized for better or worse.

So we have a really extraordinary New Moon that has a strong emphasis on the Virgoan themes.

Every New Moon has the potential for a new start and a new beginning and when the New Moon falls in the Sign of Virgo the time is perfect for addressing and tidying up loose ends. It is the right time to help ourselves or others in practical matters or to take decisions relating to health and nutrition.

It is an ideal time to set our standards, practical ways of how to serve our loved with gestures of affection, or how to organize our actions for a new project that demands our energy and focus on the details.

This New Moon in Virgo comes after the Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th of August, when we had five planets in Earth Signs and three planets in Water Signs. This was a full moon that marked a perfect time to materialize our dreams combining Earth and Water.

This New Moon now, is the perfect time to set out and take care of material, pragmatic world tasks, as the energy has shifted even more to the Earth element ,with seven bodies there while still three bodies in Water.

 

New Moon in opposition to Neptune

This polarity of the pragmatic and the idealized is reflected in the main aspect of Neptune in Pisces opposing the New Moon. This is an aspect that may play out in various ways depending on how well we can integrate the energies involved.

It can for example combine humility of ego and the need to be of service to important others with a little bit of idealizing. This could be very helpful because the idealization element will greatly lessen the excessive pedantic criticism and the perfectionism usually demanded from others, traits of the Virgo individuals. So it can help our relationships setting new standards of communication.

On the other hand, this same aspect could mean, that the excessive pedantic criticism and our desire for important relationship to be perfect, to cloud our vision and our feelings and make things worse.

This is the test of every opposition.

The meaning of this New Moon – Neptune opposition can be summed up in the following:


The perfect is not the ideal. Ask less perfection from loved ones.

At the same time the idealized does not remain perfect.

Do not get easily disappointed from your partners.


NEW MOON IN VIRGO- 9 SEPTEMBER 2018

Patterns and Motifs

What is important with this particular new moon is that the opposition to planet Neptune is aided by two Wedge formations and is also part of a Cradle pattern. The Cradle pattern connects with sextile aspects the Sun & Moon to Jupiter, Jupiter in sextile to Pluto and Pluto in sextile to Neptune.

At the same time two trine aspects, one in the Water element between Jupiter and Neptune, and the other in the Earth element between Sun-Moon and Pluto, ease once more the Neptune – New Moon opposition.

Another formation that works very helpful in the intricately woven aspect patterns in the chart of this New Moon in Virgo,  is the Grand trine in Earth between, Mercury in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus.

This Grand Trine can help us to organize our long-term plans by combining originality with stability, and strategic thinking with reformative ingenuity.

 

The Gift of this New Moon

In what ways can all these complicated aspects combine them to our most aid?

  • First of all, now is the time to be practical and realistic and to start materializing plans or new endeavors.
  • At the same time we have to continue to be inspired in order to make a reality out of a dream and not get lost in the details but to retain our grand vision.
  • We have to be very careful not to be deceived or not we to deceive others.
  • We have in mind that warm feelings and optimism will lessen most of relationship problems especially ones that have to do with over-emphasis on petty things.
  • This period is generally good as luck and numerous opportunities are guaranteed for any new projects, partnerships or actions that we begin, especially if they are approached in a practical and organized manner.
  • Remember, success is easily achieved and the necessary resources are found.
  • We are empowered because this period aligns our own spiritual growth with our deepest conviction.
  • Now is the perfect time for us to express our talents because now we will perfect them.

 

This New Moon is the Gift of Perfection and if we can tune to it, 

its rhythm will be precise and its melody sweet.

 

Find out where the New Moon falls in your chart and heed its lessons.
