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

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.

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.

NEW MOON IN LEO 31 JULY 2019

NEW MOON IN LEO 31 JULY 2019: A Love Play In Three Acts – Act One

NEW MOON IN LEO 31 JULY 2019


The New Moon takes place at 08°36’ of the Sign of Leo. It mainly has an effect for Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Taurus persons, and also for Aries and Sagittarius persons, who are born in the first decan, as well as for those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 06° – 10° degrees of the Signs mentioned.


A LOVE PLAY IN THREE ACTS

The New Moon in Leo takes place on the night of the 31st of July and it is a shining New Moon filled with the unexpected.

The curtain lifts. Spotlights on! This New Moon sets the stage and the introduction to the characters. This is the first act, of a three-act love play that will go on throughout August.


Until the end of the month three successive lunations,

with this New Moon being the first, will prompt action for us,

to be both the actors and the viewers, of the greatest story of all.

 

That, between  a Man and  a Woman.


Three moons, each one with its playfulness and drama, each one more erotic than the previous, as Venus, Mars and the Lights are coming closer and closer, and opposite, and closer once more.

The play begins…

 

Act One – NEW MOON IN LEO

Every time the Moon meets the Sun as it circles around the sky a seed is sown. Intuition, memory, needs and subconscious desires are symbolized by the moon. The conscious, the expressive self, the spirit, our cause and our very existence, are symbolized by the Sun.

The moment these two meet, a merge of the archetypal energies is taking place. In a sense the two become one. They become whole in a union of the male and female energy.

That is why the seed is sown.

 

All New Moons in Leo merge creativity with generosity, courtship with leadership, and the regal with the childlike. Yes we are confident and sure of ourselves, creativity spikes and it is our time to shine.

With this particular New Moon in Leo this merging takes place at 08°36’ of the Sign. Time for new beginnings, creation and self expression.

On the scene come two actors.

The first is Venus in Leo that closely conjuncts the two Lights. Brings on the themes of romantic love, flirting, socializing, and us feeling beautiful, not just beautiful but the most beautiful!  Expression is amorous with a flair for the dramatic. The need is that we are liked by others. The emotions are gentle and passionate at the same time. Venus is a starlet that wants to be the center of attention when it comes to love and relationship issues.

The second is Uranus. Upon entering the gong is heard. Abrupt and sudden is its entrance, breaking the viewer’s concentration. Uranus the game changer, the great awakener, is in a square aspect to Venus and to the Sun and the Moon.

Uranus energy is electric, its square to the Sun makes us impulsive, restless and tense.

Its square to the Moon stirs uncertainty, feelings of anxiety and emotional tension.

Uranus square Venus. The starlet wants constant attention but it will not be easy to have it yet… Our play starts with a love that comes unexpectedly out of the blue, or with a sudden break in existing relationships. Or with both, one after the other…

Under the uncertainty and the tension, new affairs that start may end abruptly. Summer love or just sex may come but will be short lived. Existing relationships may undergo separations that may be temporary. That is the nature of the planet Uranus, unpredictable.

NEW MOON IN LEO 31 JULY 2019

Mercury is stationary ready to go direct in the Sign of Cancer. This may lead to second thoughts, whether our emotional security is worth to be protected and not shaken by the new.

Mercury is opposite Pluto an aspect that brings a nearly obsessive re-examination of the situation. If we are single we ponder on the depth of our and the other person’s feelings, or we may fixate on the object of desire. If we are in a relationship we examine its worth and weigh the possibility of the separation.

Mars is still in a trine to Jupiter, though the aspect is separating, and Jupiter is trine to the Sun and the Moon.

What that means is that however frivolous, or eccentric, or unconventional, any new affair may be, we can still have fun since the libido remains high. Even if it is stopped suddenly, its post- feeling will be that of joy.

In the second scenario, that of relationship tension, breaks and our need to break free, the Jupiter aspects means that there is always a way to “sort it all out”… through humor, and some good mood.

This New Moon starts the month with a disruption of the normal and the element of surprise regarding our relationships and love life. It of course also affects partnerships, as well as financials bringing sudden expenses.

Beware, the Leo glamour and life style does not come cheap and everything the starlet wants costs money. Do not indulge yourselves with too much sun, fun and…. put the word you, yourselves here.

What is important to have in mind, is that this New Moon in Leo is a promise for something.

Something that the we the audience wait to happen, but we shall have to wait till the end of the month, when the New Moon in Virgo will take place, so as to see the last act of the play and how everything will come to a resolving finale.

 

Until then, I wish a joyful summer to all!

FULL MOON IN LIBRA 21 MARCH 2019

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

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

 

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.

VENUS RETROGRADE IN SCORPIO 2018

VENUS RETROGRADE IN SCORPIO 2018

VENUS RETROGRADE IN SCORPIO 2018


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

The Aesthetics of Retrograde

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

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

 

Venus retrograde October – November 2018

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

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

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

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

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


Venus retrograde in Scorpio is

the smoldering desire of a subdued and submissive romanticism.


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

 

The Karmic Effect

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

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

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

 

Venus in Retrospective Mood

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

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

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

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