This full moon occurs at 11° Virgo, the 6th house, indicating a space where our personal, private selves are caught up in routines, our health, exercise, day to day work and habits and routines.

Virgo is ruled by the planet of communications, Mercury, and so the moon in Virgo directs our attention to Mercury, because the moon’s energy will be supporting Mercury by rulership.

Mercury at 22° Pisces, the 12th house occupies the opposite sign of Virgo where the moon is transiting, which might give the impression of clashing energies, but because of Mercury’s relationship as natural ruler of Virgo, instead releases this tension and gives us our opportunity to use this moon and unite the apparent opposites that Virgo and Pisces present – one side highly organized and enforcing boundaries, the other, creative chaos and dissolving boundaries. The dissolution of the Pisces sign is harnessed by Virgo moon and a supporting trine from Saturn at 7° Capricorn to the moon, turning dissolution into evolution.

Mercury at 22° Pisces also conjuncts Venus at 23° Pisces, who is in her exaltation in Pisces, further enhancing our romantic sensibilities under the Pisces sun at 11° where Neptune is also conjunct the sun at 13° and in opposition to the Virgo moon. Our public and private lives will be balanced between Neptune’s compassionate, enveloping watery nature and the earthy Virgo moon trine Capricorn, Saturn’s enforcing sensibility. Creative projects begun in the past may reach a new stage of refinement, or even subjects involving spirituality and private contemplation finds greater application under the Virgo moon influence.

Jupiter at 23° Scorpio also trines Venus at 23° Pisces and Mercury at 22° Pisces, inviting the deep, dark, mysterious power of the Scorpion in to help us expand into these evolutions.

Black Moon Lilith at 12° Capricorn also comes into play as it trines the Virgo moon at 11°, suggesting a partnership between the virgin and the magnetically sexual and independent Lilith during this time. The day to day tasks and organization which Virgo rules could find fierce energy available to women or anyone tapped into the feminine mystique – consider those day to day routines of fixing one’s hair, maintaining a glamorous appearance particularly favored.

There is the presence of aggressive male influence as Mars at 20° of Sagittarius squares Venus and Mercury in Pisces. Perhaps a man in your life is rambunctious under the influence of expansive Sagittarius and this results in an argument, broken promises, disagreements and divergent view points. Lovers may find it hard to connect under this square and find their common ground.

We find friction in semi-squares with Saturn at 7° of Capricorn semi-square to Jupiter at 23° Scorpio – power games might arise in the career field whose end goal is not clear, a sexual relationship might become unexpectedly complex, or a father or authoritarian figure might be trying to enforce control – all things that might drive us deeper into a rabbit hole we did not plan on going down.

Uranus at 25° Aries forms a semi-square to the sun at 11° Pisces. Expect the unexpected! We may have to face a shocking change that interferes with our essential self, a matter involving children or a pushy, self-centered person, finding difficulty adjusting to a change in health status or a temporary stay in an institution.

Uranus at 25° Aries also inconjuncts Jupiter at 23° Scorpio, and here there will be a friction whose only answer might be compartmentalizing separate parts of our lives that cannot achieve harmony. Controlling and power centered Scorpio cannot meet with the up-front, me-first Aries; resolving the ever changing rebellious nature of Uranus in Aries will require a level of diplomacy that Jupiter in Scorpio is not suited to enact; Scorpio wants what it wants and damn the rest. Damage control is key.

The North Node in Leo at 13° also inconjuncts the sun at 11° Pisces. This is another occasion where compartmentalization may be key – for the public and regal Leo pointing the way to our karmic future does not find the company of the sun to be at ease in the contemplative 12th house nature of Pisces. Moving behind the scenes is better, but Leo demands, and commands, the drama of the public.

New Moon at 27° Aquarius Dreams To Stark Reality, Transformation Required – 2-15-18

02-15-2018 New Moon

When – February 15, 2018 ~ 04:06 pm EST / February 15, 2018 ~ 09:06 pm UST

Corollary Full Moon at 4° of Aquarius ON
July 27, 2018 ~ 04:22 pm EST / July 27, 2018 ~ 08:22 pm UST

Aquarius makes his mark on us this new moon with promises he will find difficult to keep. Aquarius, detached, rebellious, and dreamy, invites the sun in at 27° with the moon at 27°, and last, Mercury at 25° for a communicative conjunction. And while Aquarius may intend to keep his promises, he encounters difficulty when Jupiter at 22° Scorpio squares the sun, moon and Mercury.

Jupiter expands the natural 8th house of Scorpio, that house of pain, suffering, death, sex, the hidden and occulted, the house of transformation, suggesting that an obstacle, unforeseen, or even painful, presents itself, forcing us to make hard choices we did not anticipate. Perhaps that resistance to the status quo is no longer a viable path, perhaps we lost friends too easily, broken promises or a failure to live up to an obligation made under Mercury’s hasty influence. To get out of this mess you may have cause, transformation is required – whether it’s living up to a lie or turning it into a reality.

Trigger happy Mars in the natural 9th house ruler of Sagittarius at 12° may find us initiating projects far afield, or engaging with foreign cultures or publishing – but friction could be present as this Mars aspect squares to Neptune at 13° Pisces. Neptune wants to play the days away and swim in deep waters, but the happy go lucky nature of Sagittarius married to Mars’ physical, fiery thrust breeds dissatisfaction and neglect. Men might be more forceful in the face of vagueness and how they react to a passive aggressive force that is reluctant to give a straight forward answer, bringing discontent. Conversely, if Mars goes with the flow, there is great potential to expel this force in inclusive physical activity or traveling with no destination in mind.

The North Node in Leo at 14° trines Mars at 12° of Sagittarius. Here is a lovely push in the direction of our fate to embrace the Leonine house of play and creativity, hobbies and entrepreneurship and taking center stage. Mars charges us with even more confidence, bringing a happy go lucky attitude. Fire meets fire. Imagine the nodes in Leo serving as king and queen, and Mars in Sagittarius a general – the heroic Odysseus. They work together in harmony. Use this influence to further gain dominion and rulership over your own life and you will have the resources, (perhaps from a foreign source or a scholarship for an institution of higher learning) to lead a promising campaign for the future. Keep your eyes on the long term goal for the completion of this new moon in July 27, 2018.

A series of semi-squares present us with friction not as easily resolved in the same flash-bang pressure cooker that as square or opposition provides.

Jupiter at 22° Scorpio, expanding our desire for control and our ability to perceive corruption – or fall prey to it – semi-squares Saturn at 6° of Capricorn in his dignity. Saturn is powerful on his own throne, and is well placed to quash the upstart Jupiter, who may be engaged in acts of criminal nature, hiding wrong doing – or otherwise tempting us with over the top, too good to be true promises. If we are not the victim, than we are the perpetrator, and Saturn will likely be pleased to watch us dig our own hole before he lets us fall into his trap to teach his discipline. Beware that your need for control, sex, sadism, or violence is not breaking the boundaries of equity or the laws, for Saturn will master you, and it will be a long, drawn out affair under the semi-square influence.

Another prominent semi-square involves Venus at 6° Pisces and Pluto at 20° Capricorn, which presents an interesting friction between opposite sensibilities: the dreamy Piscean Venus, in her exaltation, is receptive and all forgiving and might represent the unconditional love of a mother, spiritual or otherwise, coming up against the Plutonic, stark demands of reality based Capricorn, who counts every cent and keeps eyes on accounts and plays by the rules. Here, again, a theme of dreaming, awakening to stark reality. There maybe a long, drawn out difficulty between a mother, a female figure, involving a hidden debt or inheritance which way to take a great deal of time to untangle.

Lastly, interesting aspects between Black Moon Lilith abound as at 10° of Capricorn she reaches conjunction with old man Saturn at 6° degrees of Capricorn.

Black Moon Lilith in Capricorn is a guest in Saturn’s home; think of a rebellious, hormonal teenager discovering her sexuality. Like Saturn, Black Moon Lilith can express this magnetic sexuality through an amazing self-sufficiency and independence, and it may be that strong-headed women discover the influence of men in their lives or either aiding them in finding their path through this intense feminine self – or badly hindering it. At his worst, Saturn will nitpick her, nag her, and burn her at the stake – anything but admit how her raw command of her sex disrupts his sense of order. The lesson of this conjunction will be in harnessing these two powerful energies for the best they have to offer.

Complicating Black Moon Lilith at 10° Capricorn is a semi-square to the sun, moon and Mercury. Expect this semi-square between rebellious Aquarius and upstart Black Moon Lilith in Capricorn to once again introduce our daydreams to stark reality, as Lilith might be providing an irritant at the sun and moon’s party. Black Moon Lilith will demand her place at the table but there may not be room for one more and it may prove impossible to placate her, leading to longer ranging consequences.

Full Moon 11° Leo Reckless Love, Expanding Intensity – 1-31-2018

https://stars-by-design.com/2017/07/24/leo-new-moon-0-degrees-lionheart/

This full moon brings interesting aspects with Venus, the benefic which rules love and money. And, in addition, this is a lunar eclipse! And as with any eclipse, expect changes and shake-ups, endings and beginnings, closure and initiations.

Venus in 16° Aquarius aligns with the sun in 11° of Aquarius. Under this full moon, women will be initiating and taking action, and under the influence of quirky, innovative, dreamy Aquarius, she will be in a moon to express herself in unexpected way; with the sun present as Leo’s natural ruler. Venus will find favor in her guises, especially since the moon occupies Leo, which by rulership is owned by the sun. The luminaries will grant support to these Venusian endeavors and in Aquarian spirit, female actions are bound to be irreverent and reckless.

The North Node in Leo at 15° also opposes this Venus/Sun conjunction, which lets us know that as positive or seemingly good one might feel, or about gifts we might receive as a result of Venus’s blessings – earnings that satisfy our needs or a new found romance, they may not be in our best interests in terms of the big picture. It’s not a matter of whether it is lasting or temporary – only whether it is propelling us in the direction of our life’s purpose and it may be leading us astray from our North Node future. Take note and consider what comes to us easily and makes us comfortable and satisfies our pleasures might be not enough.

Jupiter at 21° Scorpio also squares Venus in 16° Aquarius which reinforces the presence of this goddess in our lives. Jupiter expanding the 8th house of Pluto, sex, death, taxes and other people’s money may open the door to the unexpected – not as a frothy clash of energy, but as an attraction of opposites. Jupiter expands the seductive power of Scorpio, and Venus empowered by the sun and emboldened to let her hair down in Aquarius let’s Jupiter make the first move. In terms of money, this might indicate friction in regards to earnings, or extravagant gifts – perhaps too extravagant. Jupiter could miss the mark and scare Venus away.

Saturn at 4° Capricorn is conjunct Black Moon Lilith, hammering home the power of female sexuality with all this feminine power highlighted under this full moon.

Capricorn is Saturn’s natural ruler and this makes Lilith his guest – or his prisoner. Consider the old fairy tale of Bluebeard and his wives. This union of reserved older man (Saturn) and volatile, magnetic and sexually liberated Lilith is a potent one, for it can be both fractious but mutually beneficial. The risk here is that an authority figure, or father, or older person inadvertently quashes Lilith’s intensity and sexual expression – as a Bluebeard, keeping her under threat and held down with fear. At best, the fiery Lilith can get the old man to open up – and learn a few tricks from each other.

The hardest part of this full moon will be the spate of semi-squares to the outer planets. Notably, Neptune at 12° Pisces semi-square Mercury at 29° Capricorn, indicating a significant ending, but this ending may be drawn out and hampered by Neptune. Consider an elder person with serious health problems who relies on a hospital machine to sustain life. The time to pull the plug has come, but the paper work requires more certification or care (Mercury in Capricorn), laws must be adhered to, and though everyone has said goodbye, the Neptune fogginess and indecision sends things into a stall point.

Also Pluto at 19° Capricorn is semi-square Mars at 3° Sagittarius suggests the link of power and control in deep politics struggling to strike a deal with a foreign force. There might be significant negotiations between governments and powers at this time in foreign lands, bu tall attempt to forward progress come to naught.

New Moon at 26° Capricorn: Authority is Challenged

 

01-16-2018 New Moon

When – January 16th, 2018 ~ 09:18 EST / January 17th, 2018 ~ 02:18 am UST

Corollary Full Moon at 12° of Cancer
June 28th, 2018 ~ 12:54 pm EST / June 28th, 2018 ~ 04:54 am UST

Saturn at 3° Capricorn is only beginning to assert himself in his dignity of the 10th house, the place he feels most at home, where he keeps to the rules, enforces tasks, disciplines and brings with him a melancholic air.

Mercury at 8° and Black Moon Lilith at 7° are conjunct in this Saturnine house of Capricorn. There may be a female energy present who wants to flout authority, and Saturn might well let her, if her alignment with Mercury makes her charming enough to seduce old man Saturn. Or perhaps authority and sexual energy meet through communications, or, taken to a more abstract level, the seduction of business may have all the overtures of sexual advances – but without the sex. Saturn will frown at being taken advantage of unless there’s something in it for him.

Venus at 28° Capricorn is conjunct the Capricorn sun and Capricorn moon at 26°. Money and business flow without restriction, but responsibility and adhering to rules are key. Projects under this moon will have the potential to bear fruit, but they are ruled by Saturn, and so will require the effort and discipline Saturn so favors.

Our more taxing aspects come to us in the form of squares.

Uranus at 24° Aries squares Venus at 28° Capricorn, and the sun and moon at 26° Capricorn. Impulsiveness, brashness, or innovation may divert the careful planning of career-centered Capricorn. Recall the ancient myth of Saturn castrating his father, Uranus – this hard square between Uranus in the first house of the child Aries and the Saturn ruled Capricorn may indicate a similar castrating effect – something new enters the field of play, threatens the current status quo. Saturn is strong in his own house and will smother the new element before it has voice. Do not initiate projects that go against the grain of the established order, for they will not thrive under this aspect.

The North Node in Leo also squares Jupiter at 19° Scorpio, where Jupiter is also conjunct Mars at 24° Scorpio. Jupiter and Mars combine a potent, martial force, gearing up for a fight in the sign of Scorpio where Mars is trigger-happy. Our efforts to take charge will be undermined by this energy.

The semi-squares also give us a series of bitter pills to swallow. Mercury at 8° Capricorn semi-squares Mars at 24° Scorpio, once more reinforcing an undermined authority, but the process is slow and agonizing – could represent a failed business venture of a stock investment that promises more than it delivers through wild ups and downs, or a male figure who cannot communicate the necessary instructions to help a business operate effectively.

Jupiter at 19° Scorpio semi-squares Saturn at 3° Capricorn and the pain of the expanding planet against the planet of constriction here suggest a compartmentalization of underhanded doings or control issues in a business place or authority or even a field itself, where colleagues are revealed to be hiding something in the career field.

Neptune at 12° Pisces semi-squares Uranus at 24°, Venus at 28° Capricorn, and the moon and sun at 26° of Capricorn. This foggy Neptunian energy may give euphoria to a business venture or mislead us into a false sense of security – fraud may be at play.

One inconjunct stands out. Uranus at 24° Aries inconjunct Mars 24° Scorpio. The innovative ego child of Aries and the rapacious Mars soldier have nothing to offer each other here. Inconjuncts or quincunxes are incompatible and there may be no middle ground to work through – we can only try to pacify our self-centered needs (Aries) in a constructive matter and sometimes sports or physical activity, is a good way to off-set this.

– Corollary to New Moon at 2° of Cancer
June 23rd, 2017 ~ 10:32 pm EST / June 24th ~ 02:32 am UST

You can read about this corollary lunation on the post, here: https://stars-by-design.com/2017/06/23/cancer-new-moon-june-23-2017/

A Grand Water Trine forms at this full moon between Mars at 14° Scorpio and Neptune at 11° Pisces with the Cancer full moon at 11°. Our actions and expressions will be dreamy, emotionally driven as we start the New Year with the Cancer moon in dignity in the 4th House of home life, private life, and emotional sensibility and concerns.

This lunar cycle was begun in June of 2017 with the corollary new moon at 2° of Cancer. Our home lives were changed, irrevocably shaken up, taken into new environments, family order rearranged, break-ups and endings. The consequences are here with us to stay. Marriages or living arrangements initiated then are reaffirmed now or reach an emotional peak.

The moon at 11° of Cancer forms an opposition to Venus at 9° of Capricorn. This polarity could reveal a clash revolving around money or romance, with Venus in Saturn’s 10th house of constraints and rules and authority and career. The emotional moon in the cardinal sign of Cancer that represents our inner/private life, the life at home gives rise to an issue pulling us between these two fields of career and home. Perhaps business and pleasure, love and money are forcing us into uncomfortable decisions which can no longer be denied or put off. Perhaps co-workers or family members, or you yourself don’t know when to leave the personal at home. This could indicate at change in career or marriage.

Mars at 14° of Scorpio is conjunct Jupiter at 17° Scorpio. Jupiter’s expansive power intensifies the Scorpionic needs, increasing sexual activity, elimination, all-or-nothing attitudes, our need for control and our investment in pride/ego, and the tendency to manipulate. Beware of accidents and the after effects of intense frustration when power and control are thwarted.

Black Moon Lilith conjuncts Saturn at 1° Capricorn. This may further indicate a troubling dalliance with authority, romance affecting career or using sexual charm to get ahead or the expression of this pent-up energy could take the form of harsh criticism or scape-goating.

Further emphasizing this Capricorn theme emerging during this Cancer full moon is the Sun at 11° Capricorn and also conjunct Venus at 9°. Use Venus’s seductive gifts and blend them with the Saturnine house of Capricorn: diplomacy is the way forward as schism emerge in this Cancer/Capricorn polarity.

Semi-squares in effect include Saturn at 1° of Capricorn semi-square to Mars at 14° of Scorpio and Jupiter at 17° Scorpio, indicating further complications in matters of career as Saturn is in his dignity in his home domicile of Capricorn. This can be contentious as authority/career might face opposing interests or challenges – perhaps a project needs extra effort or is sabotaged and someone’s job is on the line, or maybe a great deal of frustration is coming from the top down, or a powerful rival stands in your way. Either way, the issue may finally reach culmination at this full moon.

The North Node is also active with several aspects. The North Node in Leo trines Mercury at 19° Sagittarius. Communications flow up with ease and meet approval with authority; contracts move forward with ease.

The North Node in Leo squares Jupiter at 17° Scorpio and Mars at 14° Scorpio. Revealing a ruling authority figure is undermined by an aggressive, militaristic force, arguments and unrest may reflect in your home life, or these may be scenes played on a larger political stage – in the wider sociology-economic world of governments and civilizations, the outer planets suggest frustrations in the macro-arena.

Neptune in Pisces at 11° forms a semi-square to Uranus in Aries at 24°. Technology or innovation is stalled by more dreams than means. How is that solar farm working out for you? Money is squandered or lost in a speculative gamble, whether the stock market or casino, an even an apparent “win” comes with a costly consequence, standing in the way of the prize.

Sagittarius New Moon, 12-18-2017

Sagittarius New Moon

It’s the last new moon of 2017!

When I started this blog, I started out 2017 with a specific goal: post an astrological break down of each new and full moon. I kept my goal, and learned much more about the lunar cycles than I could have imagined, widening my understanding and sharing my insights with a wonderful audience.

As we close in on the last days of 2017, we have a chance to experience new beginnings. The sun and moon conjunct at 26 degrees of Sagittarius, that expansive sign of foreign travel and culture, higher education, and publishing.

In addition, Saturn is hinged on the 29th degree, hammering home the old saying that every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end; no less now as we prepare for Saturn to be ushered into Capricorn. Perhaps we are still tidying up retrograde messes from Saturn’s previous passage, or Mercury, who is still retrograde at 15 degrees Sagittarius. Yet, with Saturn closing in on the next sign, we may notice bigger shifts. Think back to when Saturn first entered Sagittarius in late 2015; I myself began a course of study that is now finishing. Others may notice that long term projects are coming to fruition, or nearing closure. It is time to consider what else we may want to build under this new moon, knowing that Capricorn is going to be a major transit in Saturn’s future.

And considering that the sun and moon are conjunct Saturn, it should be clear that our public and private life is supporting our potential new projects. Consider Capricorn’s earthy, practical nature and focus on career and ambitions to succeed. We may be considering how we can take the lessons of Sagittarius and apply them to our career field.

Significantly, Uranus is also at 24 degrees of Aries, and in nearly six months, he will be moving into earth-centered Taurus. For now, though, he’s making a trine to the sun and the moon, and a very loose trine to Saturn; we may see something unexpected come into our lives — for many, the holiday season might bring gifts we did not foresee, or the meeting of old friends and relatives we had thought were lost to us.

Venus at 21 degrees of Sagittarius is also making a trine to Uranus at 24 degrees of Aries, and so there might be matters of romance or fortune coming into play during the holiday season as well; keep the mood light hearted and steal a kiss beneath the mistletoe.

Neptune at 11 degrees Pisces will also form square with Mercury, retrograde at 15 degrees Sagittarius; this may indicate some difficulties with negotiations, contracts, or at the very least, unclear or fuzzy information which could also implicate media. It’s my understanding that recently, an article regarding a UFO was the headline “news” among several major newspapers — information acquired from a member of the band Blink 182. Given that this square with Neptune and this retrograde Mercury is happening in conjunction with the media covering this event, be aware that everything considered fit-to-print is not the whole story, and it comes with a strong whiff of delusion, if not outright distraction. Be advised to carefully vette what information you intend to make decisions based off of so you can take a proper heading and not be lost in the fog.


A compilation of the full and new moons of 2018 will be available in late 2017, called Lunations, 2018, which will be made available as an ebook.
