Corollary to Full Moon 27° Scorpio
of May 18, 2019 ~ 5:11 pm EST / May 18, 2019 ~ 09:11 pm UST

This new moon lunation occurs at 15° Scorpio, making all our experiences dark, deep, sexy, intense, and transformative. As the sun and the moon join in Scorpio, they will be trined by Neptune at 13° Pisces. This can be a deep and creative time for artists, a spiritual time in which we feel aligned with a calling or a purpose greater than ourselves. We may be letting go of beliefs or things that have gone stagnant and stale, or alternatively, we might be experiencing endings and with endings, beginnings.

Black Moon Lilith at 10° Aquarius will also square the sun and the moon at 15° Scorpio, indicating the presence of the taboo, the sexual shadow side, the fiercely independent female impulse. This may exemplify a magnetic female in your life who is pushing the envelope of the ordered ego-centered life, or it could be an aspect of yourself wreaking havoc or change, and the same old same old will no longer suffice until the inner magnetism and independence and sexual spirit is satisfied.

Mercury is at 8° of Sagittarius. We might be prone to be expansive in our conversations, philosophical and asking big questions, our communications will be upbeat and happy.

Venus at 26° Libra is still in retrograde phase, where our relationships are the focus, particularly in matters of marriage. If our romantic relationships are strong we may be reconnecting with our partners and discovering more about ourselves through, but alternatively, past romances may be coming to the surface and previous lovers may find their way into our lives. If we have been unfaithful or our partner’s have been, now will be the time when covert romances will come to light. If these relationships have lost the essential ingredients that compel love to last, now may be a time of endings and break-ups, and the Scorpio new moon and sun will make this more possible than ever.

Venus at 26° Libra retrograde will trine Mars at 25° Aquarius. Quickening our interactions between the sexes, whether it be increased activity and events or increased friction, there may be a tendency to argue or rock the boat with Mars in detached and defiant Aquarius, and Mars too will be aggravated by a square from Jupiter at 29° Scorpio, a degree of ending. This is not a time period good for having serious relationship talks, but it may not be a force under our control, given these numerous fractious aspects.

Venus will also face an opposition from Uranus at 29° Aries, one again, a degree emphasizing endings. Mars rules Aries, so the shocking and rebellious energy of Uranus will be charging Mars, and the domain of the masculine, the active force. We may experience an unexpected event or discover something new.

The North Node at 0° Leo will square Venus at 26° of Libra and square Uranus at 29° of Aries. We may find fated events surround us, inexplicable feelings regarding past or new romantic relationships marked by unexpected instability. Our usual focus and our ego center may be thrown out of balance by difficult choices that concern this Libra-Aries axis of relationship to self and relationship to others.

Full Moon at 1° Taurus: Emotional Shake Ups – 10-24-2018

Corollary to New Moon at 24° of Taurus
May 15, 2018 ~ 7:49 am EST / May 15, 2018 ~ 11:49 am UST

This full moon lunation at 1° Taurus revolves around issues of resources, wealth, and other people’s resources and wealth at the Taurus-Scorpio axis.

The sun occupies 1° of Scorpio, focusing matters on transformation, elimination, endings, purification, the occult, intensity, uncompromising, sexuality, inheritances, windfalls, taxes, bankruptcy, power and control.

The sun will be conjunct Venus at 4° of Scorpio, where she is still in retrograde, and in detriment, making this a charged time for the feminine sensibilities as we are reviewing matters of wealth and romance.

The moon at 1° of Taurus is in exaltation. Our home life and our emotional selves will move with a more sensual pace, wanting beauty and enjoying our material lives.

Venus and the sun in Scorpio will form an opposition to Uranus at 0° of Taurus. We may find our resources shaken by instability, by changes in technology and the stock market. The moon at 1° of Taurus will be to opposition to Venus at 4° Scorpio retrograde there may be a shift in resources that requires the closing of an account, a break-up, an indiscretion or misuse of power that forces a break-up, and also affects the home situation, such as someone moving out.

This event may be unexpected and shocking in nature, since Uranus will be conjunct the moon at 0° Taurus.

A trine from Saturn at 4° Capricorn will demand a better rebuilding of structures and if something should fall apart under the force of this lunation, Saturn will support us in the rebuilding process.

Mercury 21° Scorpio makes our conversations take on an intense, extreme flavor in which we may be more inclined to trade secrets or be privy to important conversations, Mercury will face a square from Mars at 17° Aquarius, so we should be circumspect in how we speak to others and be aware if we have a tendency to grand stand. Arguments will be combative and belligerent. A semi-square from Saturn at 4° Capricorn will put us in an awkward spot in which we should be careful that our communications do not get us in trouble with authority figures, lest it hamper our advancement in our career field.

Venus at 4° Scorpio is still in retrograde. Prominently, Black Moon Lilith at 8° Aquarius will make a square to Venus, further aggravating any tension already in the mix from the retrograde and the Uranus opposition. One suspects that Black Moon Lilith indicates the role of taboo sexual nature taking over a relationship, of an infidelity, or even an incredibly potent period for sex and self expression for single women.

Mars at 17° Aquarius is in the rebellious phase and will form a semi-square to Saturn at 4° Capricorn, further highlighting a difficulty from authority in career, a project that might be fraught with glitches and take months of work toward resolution. Or, to use Mars appropriate war terms, a campaign that lasts longer than planned, a siege that require extra time and attention.

New Moon at 15° Libra: Forbidden Love – 10-8-2018

10-08-2018 New Moon

October 8, 2018 ~ 11:47 pm EST / October 9th, 2018 ~ 03:47 am UST

Corollary to Full Moon at 0° of Libra on
March 20, 2019 ~ 09:43 pm EST / March 21, 2019 ~ 01:43 am UST

This lunation concentrates primarily on Libra, the 7th house of relationships with both the sun and the new moon at 15° of Libra. We will be emphasizing balance in our relationships and the essential give and take it implies.

This new moon also squares Pluto from 18° Capricorn, suggesting the restraints of responsibility may make itself felt and put strain on our personal relationships. Our careers or authority may be challenging us, or undergoing a transformation that asks us to make compromises where our relationships are concerned, especially for the sake of our careers.

An inconjunct from Neptune at 14° Pisces to the luminaries may complicate things and we may want to give more than we should or let people walk all over us. These qualities will be at odds with our relationships and cause more friction that can not be so easily resolved and we may find ourselves in a holding pattern, waiting for the fog to lift.

Mercury at 28° of Libra also highlights communications in the 7th house of relationships, increasing the velocity of these social aspects and the possibility of day trips, experiences with siblings.

This Mercury at 28° of Libra faces an opposition from Uranus at 1° of Taurus, both houses ruled by Venus. We may have an unexpected contract that brings us earnings or other resources. It may involve a relationship or connection, or possibly hinder a relationship or connection, and we may have to make a decision regarding how we handle our social resources (relationships) and our monetary resources.

This Mercury at 28° of Libra also squares the north node of Leo at 2°, and so we may have communications that are not serving up to our potential. North node in Leo is asking us to be more politic – dare I say royal – with our self-expression.

Venus at 10° Scorpio is in retrograde. The last retrograde period was in early 2017. We can expect that financial matters might be put on hold or need re-evaluating; we might be considering our beauty and wanting a change, and we may be reconsidering our love relationships and in the house of Scorpio, the potential for permanent break-ups is possible, but in retrograde, do not be surprised if romances thought to be dead unexpectedly come back to life. On the darker side, there may be issues of power and control and fighting over resources. Now is the time to evaluate what you want from your beloved.

Further compounding this Venus in Scorpio retrograde, Mars at 9° of Aquarius is conjunct Black Moon Lilith at 7° of Aquarius, and they both square retrograde Venus in Scorpio. This looks like lovers having secret affairs or competing with each other for affections.

Mars is deeply intertwined with Black Moon Lilith, both of them in rebellious and detached Aquarius. What this square to Venus implies an also mean a discovery of infidelity within a committed relationship, and by known persons, given Aquarius’s 11th house designation of friendships and connections. Women will fuel the dual natures of Venus and Black Moon Lilith pulling at them as well, and this could make for a romantically charged time with a great deal of friction in relationship.

A trine to Venus at 10° of Scorpio retrograde from Neptune at 14° Pisces will also suggest a greater potential for people to exercise poor judgment in love partners. Neptune will sweep us off our feet and the effect is lovely to behold – the danger of Neptune is like the tide comes in to sweep away the sand castle. We wake up to discover nothing left for us once the tide retreats.

We will be more prone to being lied to during this period or losing money through bad gambles.

Full Moon at 2° of Aries: Fated Connections – 9-24-2018

Corollary New Moon at 26° of Aries
April 15, 2018 ~ 9:59 EST / April 16, 2018 ~ 01:59 am UST

This lunation brings us concerns regarding the Aries – Libra axis of relationships to self and relationships to others from the 1st to the 7th house.

The sun occupies 1° Libra, that 7th house of relationships to others, bringing focus. Those we relate to and defines and validates our ego-self. We will be focused on maintaining our relationships and enjoying those we are surrounded by.

The full moon is at 2° Aries, suggesting that we may want to spend more time at home and surrounding matters of the home environment. Initiating new things or even spend more time on things we like to do.

Mercury at 5° Libra is conjunct the sun and this makes our relationship matters more communicative, we may be compelled to make short trips or engage with our inner social butterfly. With a square from Saturn at 2° Capricorn, odds are we will call our from work and play hooky for the sake of those relationships. We may have obligations and we’ll feel compelled to ignore them. This is further emphasized by a trine from Mars at 3° Aquarius and Black Moon Lilith at 5° Aquarius, giving impetus from a very action-oriented and sexy place.

Venus at 18° Scorpio takes on a dark and deep sexy flavor, and our romantic interactions will be intense in nature. This is further demonstrated by a square with Black Moon Lilith at 5° Aquarius and Mars at 3° Aquarius. This friction could prove quite magnetic between the sexes, even if the clashing energy creates hard decisions or arguments – all this intensity draws like to like, and when the dust clears in the Scorpionic house of transformation, we will know if the intensity is worth while and meant to last or if it’s an issue of misused power and control.

Mars at 3° Aquarius in conjunction with Black Moon Lilith at 5° Aquarius makes those seductive encounters push the boundaries of the status quo in relationship and Mars is in the mood to entertain her. However, they both occupy the south node space in opposition to the north node at 2° Leo and this speaks to fated encounters with people from our karmic past. South node relationships may be helping us come to terms with unfinished business and tying up loose ends. But it could also mean we are becoming entangled in relationships that no longer suit us, and we may be giving too much of our time to old connections that are not progressing our lives in a meaningful direction.

The north node at 2° Leo trines the sun at 3° Libra and Mercury at 5° Libra, suggesting fated circumstances will be present in our relationships during this period. We should find all such matters move swiftly and smoothly.

New Moon at 17° of Virgo: Resource Instability – 9-9-2018

Corollary to Full Moon at 0° of Virgo on
February 19, 2019 ~ 10:53 am EST / February 19, 2019 ~ 03:53 pm UST

The prominent features of this new moon lunation is that it does not complete a cycle as others do, which begin with a new moon in a sign, and then finish several months later with a full moon in that same sign. This lunation does not complete its sign.

We have a Grand Earth Trine forming with Mercury at 6° Virgo, Saturn @ 2° Capricorn, and Uranus at 2° Taurus. Mercury and Saturn are dignified, making expressions of communication and authority and career easy.

A grand cross also takes shape with Venus at 0° Scorpio, Uranus at 2° Taurus, and Black Moon Lilith/Mars at 29° Aquarius, and the north node at 3° Leo. Hard decisions or situations may arise in this clash of energies; interestingly, with Venus in Scorpio and Uranus in Taurus, we have a case where Uranus occupies a Venus ruled sign. Resources and wealth and love relationships are strongly highlighted along this Taurus-Scorpio axis, from the resources we own to other people’s resources, there may be instability in that arena as resources are shifted via unforeseen circumstances or taken from us through loss or neglect.

On the Leo-Aquarius axis we have the north node in Leo in opposition to Black Moon Lilith/Mars, which also means Black Moon Lilith/Mars is conjunct the south node. Fated experiences may well await us, and one can expect there to be magnetic sexual experiences where Black Moon Lilith and Mars meet in the detached, dreamy and rebellious sign of Aquarius. These relationships may not be in our soul’s best interest as indicated by the conjunction with the south node, and our best use of the events is to understand how we can use them in service to our north node destination.

The sun and moon will conjunct Virgo at 17°, giving us impetus to be organized, efficient, discerning, focusing on our daily tasks, health and exercise. Pluto will trine from Capricorn, increasing the intensity of our focus, asking us to go deeper and look harder at our tasks, even to restructure the way we accomplish things.

An opposition with Neptune at 15° Pisces may pull us away from our responsibilities or complicate our efforts, confusing our direction or purpose.

Venus at 0° Scorpio, the ruler of wealth and beauty is in the Pluto ruled sign of Scorpio, so we can expect our romantic interactions and money matters to be intertwined with Scorpion themes, such as transformation, endings, and sex. Venus will square Mars at 29° Capricorn, indicating pressure from authority or career field, possibly coming from an elder male figure or leader position.

Mars at 29° Capricorn will square Uranus at 2° Taurus, which is also an issue regarding themes of resources, clashing with the needs of career and authority.

~25TH MANSION OF THE MOON: AL SA’D AL AKHBIYAH~

Full Moon at 3° of Pisces: Squares Dominate – 8-26-2018

08-26-2018 Full Moon

Corollary to New Moon at 26° of Pisces
March 17, 2018 ~ 9:14 am EST / March 17, 2018 ~ 1:14 pm UST

This lunation has a strong concentration on the Virgo-Pisces axis, with numerous squares.

The sun occupies 3° of Virgo. We may find ourselves concerned with daily work and chores, our pets, our health habits and exercise. Virgo’s ruler is Mercury, which is in forward motion during this time after a retrograde period in the sign of Leo at 14°.

The full moon is at 3° of Pisces, and so this can be a time of emotional expression, of effusive feeling, of a desire to give all and so our hearts might not be as focused on the organizational detail oriented work the sun is asking us to perform. We want to pour out our hearts, but Virgo wants us to pour with greater consideration and discernment.

Mercury at 14° of Leo will give our expressions added drama and creative force which can suit this Virgo sun well, but at it’s worst, has the potential to make our Pisces infused hearts confess all – don’t drunk dial/text at this time or it will stoke others to anger, wounding your ego and causing yet more inappropriate words to be exchanged. This will be exacerbated by a square to Mercury from Jupiter at 16° of Scorpio, further setting the stage to unlock one’s tongue to reveal secrets and feelings better left unsaid.

With an additional inconjunct moving in from Neptune at 15 Pisces – watch your mouth! It will do us no good to let it run away with our heart.

Venus at 18° of Libra will square the god of the underworld, Pluto in Capricorn at 19° there may be difficulties between relationships in love and romance that require compromises we are unwilling to make or blindsided by and this will require transformation in the face of defeat – or even challenges from financial institutions and difficulties w/money flow.

Venus will also semi-square the sun, make expressions of affection and aspirations of money acquisition difficult and obstacles prolonged.

Mars at 28° Capricorn is still in retrograde motion; now he affects the realm of career, authority figures and fathers. Men will feel the energy of this Mars and may be reinforcing their authority or be examining what it means to be in a position of authority. This will be a reflective time for men who have earned power and respect in their lives, but for those who have not, insecurity may trigger arguments which force combative men into reflection.

Mars at 28° Capricorn will also face a semi-square to Neptune at 15° Pisces and so there may be confused messages coming from people in authority, or men who find their careers will present problems to which there are no cut and dry solutions. This will prove frustrating as the Mars impulse is a pull to action, but action becomes harder when well defined goals are absent.

Mars at 28° Capricorn will also conjunct Black Moon Lilith at 2° Aquarius; taboo female sexuality could find itself at war with the steadfast Capricorn flavor of retrograde Mars. Expect clashes between the sexes that are potent in the presence of female power, but these may be clashes of unexpressed desire.

Mars also contends with a square from Uranus at 2° Taurus. There could be an issue which arises suddenly and unexpectedly as a result of financial instability, and the cost could involve members of a team or a company. Whatever form this square takes, it will be the pressure between uncertain resources, whether a volatile stock market or checking account, and the needs of the status quo, or in this sense, a community with common purpose, such as the camaraderie among soldiers – Mars in the Saturn ruled Capricorn.

Saturn at 2° Capricorn will trine the sun at 3° Virgo and trine Uranus at 2° Taurus – a grand earth trine, good for stability, reliance, and dependability.

You may find during this time that all matters pertaining to these earthy signs will move quickly, organizing, health and exercise, grounded analytical thinking, discernment, pragmatism, good eating and appreciate of both body and beauty, will provide a sturdy foundation for long term plans or even just activities or events that give a sense of beauty and nurturing to one’s life.

The north node at 4° Leo makes a square to Uranus at 2° Taurus and forms an opposition to Black Moon Lilith at 2° Aquarius. Here, our future is complicated by instability in needed resources and our relationship to darker, primal sense regarding desire and it’s express with Black Moon Lilith in rebellious Aquarius.

New Moon at 18° of Leo: Mercury Retrograde in the Royal Sign of Leo – 8-11-2018

08-11-2018 New Moon

Corollary Full Moon at 8° of Leo
January 21, 2019 ~ 12:17 am EST / January 21, 2019 ~05:17 am UST

We have an emphasis on the Leo-Aquarius axis during this new moon lunation in the sign of Leo at 18°. Expect projects started then to reach fruition at the completing full moon on January 21, 2019.

Together, the sun at 18° of Leo, the moon at 18° of Leo, conjunct Mercury at 14° of Leo, retrograde. We can expect some complications in the arena of business, children, and creative pursuits at this time.

Mercury in retrograde at 14° of Leo will also square Jupiter at 14° of Scorpio; perhaps our communications, our movements, will meet with a challenge as Jupiter expands the need for control and hidden secrets. We may have to transform our communications to be adequately heard or find ourselves stifled.

In addition, Neptune at 15° of Pisces forms an inconjunct to Mercury at 14° of Leo, and the sun and moon at 18° of Leo. We may find that we become indecisive in our lives where before we were certain of ourselves, but prior obligations prevent us from changing course. We are pulled into service against our will, but cannot back out.

Venus at 4° of Libra is in her dignity, but while her placement here is a happy one, she fields multiple aspects.

Venus at 4° of Libra trines Mars at 0° Aquarius, and our relationships with men and the male principle should prove magnetic and fast moving. Flirty Venus in Libra has the power to take the feistiness out of the Aquarius Mars contrarian stance.

Venus squares Saturn at 3° Capricorn, and here there might be a crunch in finances or a constraint in relationship, there might be demands from career that tread on a planned party, and our fun has to be cancelled – or at least given a rain check.

Venus also trines Black Moon Lilith at 0° Aquarius (which is also conjunct Mars retrograde). As a result, there should be a delightful fusion of feminine powers. You might be more seductive or glamorous than usual, just be careful your assertiveness doesn’t run away with you in this Mars energy. Too much glamour might cause some friction in the public and private sphere, so safeguard yourself against decisions that could negatively affect your reputation.

Mars at 0° Aquarius retrograde, also squares Uranus at 2° Taurus. This could raise the stakes of the unexpected and of combativeness. Men may find themselves in the grip of a mood swing, angry with small irritations one minute, and detached and frustrated by boredom the next. The best antidote to staying out of trouble is to keep busy and keep physically active, and most of all, take all precautions I sports to stay safe and ward off accidents.

With Mars also facing a semi-square to Neptune at 15° Pisces, be careful not to over indulge in drinking or escapist pursuits. It’s one thing to do something to let off steam, and completely another to do it to the exclusion of all else. All things in moderation, and again, be wary of the potential for accidents should Neptune’s influence add confusion where you least expect it.

North node at 5° Leo opposes Mars at 0° Aquarius, retrograde, which will agitate this sense of rebellion – and that is precisely the impulse that we should strive to avoid, for it will work against our north node karmic future that asks for a more Leonine consideration – the service of a king, for instance, will be a trait more rewarding but also harder to achieve at this time.
