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.

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.

JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS – JUPITER IN PISCES: JUPITER’S MYSTICAL RULERSHIPS

JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS

GET YOUR OWN READING!

Jupiter when placed in the Signs of its rulership, Sagittarius or Pisces, is operating in the same Mutable mode but being in a different Element, it expresses differently.

 

JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS

In Sagittarius, Jupiter expands Gnosis, expands our mind to open and reach out towards wisdom, through the acceptance and acknowledgment of the multiple and different forms and ideas in the material world.

Here Jupiter calls us on a quest for self-discovery, a broadening of our mind and our horizons, with an accumulation of real life experiences through travelling, studying or reading.


The process of expansion is external and is lived as an outlet for the fiery passion of the sign to live life at its fullest.


Travel and enjoy life, embrace new cultures, explore new opportunities, learn more and more, adopt a philosophy or a religious system.

All are possible ways to expand Gnosis, knowledge and yourself. Jupiter here becomes passionate and acts in good faith. A faith in Life.

The person with Jupiter here in the natal chart, may have deep ethics, religious views or be a real cosmopolitan, with a passionate warm nature, optimistic, generous and over enthusiastic.

Jupiter in Sagittarius, on his unskilled side or if the planet is making many hard aspects in the native’s natal chart, may give a tendency to the person to wander unceasingly without rooting somewhere, and to accumulate an excess of experiences for the sake of experiences only, without judging if they are ethical or expedient.

Jupiter here may be William Blake, the painter, saying:


“The path of excess leads to the tower of wisdom”


 

JUPITER IN PISCES

In Pisces Jupiter evolves and sustains Belief, expands the sub-conscious, and reaches out towards universal energy and acceptance of the transient nature of reality.

Here Jupiter calls us on a quest for self-discovery through the broadening of the faculty of empathy, that bestows understanding, compassion for others, and elevates the psyche to higher vibrations.


The process of expansion is internal. 

It is not outright visible, but many times hidden or mystical and is lived as an outlet for the psychological need of the Sign of Pisces to be Inspired.


The person with Jupiter here in the natal chart, may be a deeply religious person, a pious one, or a spiritual guru, or someone who has a strong faith in man’s inherent ability to love truly and devoutly. 

Jupiter here may be William Blake, the mystical poet, saying:


“If the doors of perception were cleansed

everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.”

“If a thing loves, it is infinite.”


Jupiter in Pisces on his unskilled side, or if the planet is making many hard aspects in the native’s natal chart, may give a tendency to the person to easily believe and be beguiled, may give excessive daydreaming, escapism or to make a person over-react towards the need of others.

 

THE POET AND PAINTER, WILLIAM BLAKE

William Blake (November 28, 1757 – August 12, 1827) was one of the most important English poets and also painter, engraver, illustrator, mystic and visionary. It is often referred to as the “Prophet” of English literature and is among the major poets of world literature.

P.S. Interestingly enough William Blake has Jupiter in Sagittarius!

FULL MOON IN GEMINI NOVEMBER 2018

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

FULL MOON IN GEMINI NOVEMBER 2018


The Full Moon takes place at 00°and 52’ of the Gemini Sign. It strongly affects Gemini and Sagittarius Signs and also Pisces and Virgo Signs which are born in the first days, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 00° – 02° degrees of the Mutable Cross.

The proximity of the Full Moon to the last degrees of the Fixed Cross affects also Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius persons that are born in the last 2 days of their Sign, or those hose having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 28°-29° degrees of the Fixed Cross.


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

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

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

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


Request your Astrology Reading by Andrew Ifandis


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

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

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

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

 

Mercury is also square to Neptune in Pisces.

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

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

 

Jupiter is also conjunct the Sun and opposing the Moon.

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

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

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

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

 

FULL MOON IN GEMINI NOVEMBER 2018

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

FULL MOON IN GEMINI NOVEMBER 2018 GR

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

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

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

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

What we need to do:

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

 

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

Full Moon in Sagittarius

FULL MOON IN SAGITTARIUS – 29 MAY 2018: Starry Night

Full Moon in Sagittarius


The Full Moon takes place at 08°and 10’ of the Sign of Sagittarius. It strongly affects Sagittarius and Gemini Signs and also Virgo and Pisces Signs which are born in the first decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 06° -10° degrees of the Mutable Cross.

Especially with this particular Full Moon, the Grand Trine between Venus, Jupiter and Neptune affects those who have planets or horoscope points, between 10°-18° of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

An adventurous Full Moon is taking place on 29th of May, a moon that is infusing us with positive energy.

At last, after a period of intense moons that have set critical milestones and have marked developmental changes for many of us, now the sky is clear again.

We can now once more stand under the moonlight, feel the night breeze and marvel at the awesome display above our head. We can breathe deep, inhale the fresh air in the stillness of the night, as the twinkling stars above entice us again in faraway journeys.

The positive energy of this Full Moon is a calling to the most expanding part of our psyche. The part that likes to explore and discover, a calling to a childish urge that says, “run, jump the fence, go down this road, find where it leads you!”.

This is the nature of the Sagittarius, the Sign where the Moon is placed in this Full Moon. Excitement for what’s new.

The exciting feeling of this Full Moon in Sagittarius comes naturally and is the long-awaited release of the tension felt during the previous month.


This Full Moon is a positive culmination

that brings fulfilling emotions.


It is not unusual when the Full Moon occurs in the jovial and expansive Sign of Sagittarius, to have a positive energy but with this particular Full Moon there are some factors that amplify its positive effect.

The Sun and the Moon polarity, that happens when we have a Full Moon, usually brings overwhelming emotions or tension. This is not the case with this Full Moon, because it is a polarity aided by the aspects that the two Luminaries make with planet Mars in Aquarius.

The Sun in Gemini is in a trine aspect to Mars, and the Moon is in a sextile aspect with the red planet. These simultaneous harmonious aspects ease the sentimental tension and present an outlet for it, through action.

We feel energetic and invigorated, confident and bold, we are driven by being unique and letting the world know how we feel.

There is no conflict between our need for a personal vision and knowing our  very facts. We have examined the facts, we have made the moves, and we have shifted our stance. Now we may begin forming a new vision or to start making an already held vision, a reality. With this Full Moon we know where we stand and we know that we are ready to move on.


This Full Moon set us on a journey to find our inner truth

and to have the courage to express it.


There are no other major aspects made by the two Lights.

Just this Wedge Pattern that denotes, reforming action (Mars in Aquarius), invoked by true feelings (Mars in Aquarius sextile Moon in Sagittarius), that ease the confident expression of our desires (Mars in Aquarius trine Sun in Gemini).

Yes, we stand under the stars and we savor the night air, we comprehend the big picture, and feeling ready to jump on the first train to the next thrill.

It’s such an energizing Full Moon!

 

The second reason for the fulfilling energy that this Full Moon is having is the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Venus.

This marvelous Grand Trine in the Water Signs emphasizes our most positive emotional qualities.

Jupiter trine Neptune brings vision, dreams, ethical belief, compassion and spiritual awareness. This qualities are compatible with the need for a true vision that the Moon in Sagittarius expresses and since Jupiter rules the Moon, we are all the more easily attuned to such feelings.

Jupiter trine Venus attracts good fortune, brings joy and pleasure, good-natured feelings, appreciation for love and art, and socializing. In this positive mood our excitement is easily aroused.

Neptune trine Venus is the love for the ideal, the idealization of love, the daydream fantasy of spiritual realms. It is through this extremely sensitive and inspiring mindset that our senses tingle, we fill optimistic and ready to embark on a new adventure.


This full moon is an urge to travel outwards… 

but in reality is a journey towards the within.


 

It is a powerful time for emotional release and for opening ourselves to new possibilities.

This is the time to ask ourselves some important questions and have the big vision to find the answers that can make real changes.

SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON – 18 DECEMBER 2017: Cosmopolitan spark


The New Moon takes place in the 26th degree of the Sign of Sagittarius. It affects the Mutable Signs (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo) as well as Leo and Aries Signs that are born in the third decan or those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 26th degree of these Signs.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

Moon joins the Sun on the 18th of December and this union, as with every New Moon, marks a new realization. The New Moon period is the right time to begin something since we have a fresh mood and we feel invigorated.

This New Moon in particular works refreshingly and has a positive overtone since it occurs in the Sign of Sagittarius, an amicable and jovial Sign, and is mostly accompanied by positive aspects.

Sagittarius is an optimistic Sign that has open horizons and broadened perception.

A New Moon in Sagittarius gives an appetite for exploration to our soul and to our spirit and makes us to eagerly looking forward for the new prospects that lay ahead. It brings us the desire to be open and true with ourselves and honest with others, since sincerity and straightforwardness are basic Sagittarius traits.

After the deep psychological digging of the previous New Moon in Scorpio, and the difficult efforts to communicate what we have unearthed with the Full Moon in Gemini, this New Moon at last brings, immediacy, renewal and revitalization.

We now are optimistic, and with Venus in conjunction with the New Moon, we come out not only with a positive aura but also with spontaneous shine and charisma. We know our value and we are in harmony with our feelings.  We feel likable and we are popular. We are tender, jovially friendly, exciting social, and most important craving for new experiences.


This New Moon is a cosmopolitan spark that becomes our inner trigger

for starting something new with enthusiasm.


Next to the two Lights, and also conjunct with Venus, Saturn materializes this new externalization of ourselves adding to it the necessary seriousness and lessening any exaggeration. We take ourselves seriously.

New relationships that we may make shall not be frivolous, and in any beginning or new resolution that we shall commit ourselves to, we are going have acknowledgement and respect for our efforts from our partners and close relationships.

Another positive characteristic of this New Moon is that Uranus from within the Sign of Aries is making a trine aspect with all the planets I have already mentioned.

This gives us the air and freedom for self-expression. Uranus trine with Venus brings pleasant changes in our social and love life and surprises us with opportunities for making new connections. These may start unconventionally or in original settings but there is a great chance they will evolve for a long term.

Jupiter and Mars are conjunct Scorpio and so every action and initiative, indispensable constituents for any new beginning, are favored. Add to this the fact that Neptune is making a trine with both planets and we can talk about inspired action with creativity.

This New Moon in Sagittarius favors new endeavors but at the same time we have to be cautious to moderate and slow down its exaggerated enthusiasm. Especially more in this case, where Jupiter, the ruling planet of enthusiastic Sagittarius, is making a square aspect to the Moon's Nodes. So we have to pay extra attention to excess and overreacting.

Another thing we must have in mind is that Mercury will still be retrograde for some days after the New Moon while at the same time it makes a square aspect with Neptune. This means we should think before taking action and be careful of our spontaneity so as to avoid mistakes, wrong judgments and / or unnecessary idealizations.

This New Moon on December 18th is the last lunation for 2017. And yes for some of you, depending on where it fells on your personal chart, it may it be an ideal opportunity to set in motion circumstances that would lead to an expansive 2018.

Sure thing is that it promises a festive season full of excitement and adventure!

I wish everyone a happy and creative holiday season & Merry Christmas!


Find out where the New Moon falls in your chart

and embrace its promise for renewal.

SATURN in SAGITTARIUS SQUARE JUPITER in VIRGO

Saturn square Jupiter

Saturn square Jupiter is an aspect that tests our faith.

The Whitman brothers in the movie "The Darjeeling Limited" start on a journey to find themselves and seek spiritual guidance. On their quest they travel through Kashmir and pay homage from one temple to the other, religious relic after relic. It is as if a higher power like an invisible hand pushes them towards a higher purpose, but they are too focused in the reality around that they miss any possibility of attaining spirituality.

Ironically, their enlightenment comes in a small village in the middle of nowhere when they share humane, personal, everyday moments with the villagers.

Yes, our faith in something higher, in ourselves, in our dreams, in the future, this period may actually be tested. But we can find faith where it gushes. Not in the high places, but where we serve ethically our purpose, in the humble and daily.

We only need to know that FAITH is within us. It starts from us and leads to us.
