This full moon Libra at 10° occurs with Mercury heavily signified. Mercury, the messenger, is already in retrograde Aries at 12°, opposition to the Libra moon, and further intensified by a conjunction to the sun in Aries at 10°.

With Libra being the natural house of relationships and a cardinal sign, no doubt our home life, as exemplified by the more emotional moon, will be figured into our lives during this period. Our spouses, partner, others we relate to, whether casually or intensely, might be finding their way into our behind the scenes private life. Mercury is bound to throw the monkey wrench into our well-laid plans from his perch in the individual focused house of Aries. Retrograde, agreements and contracts are always fraught with problems during a retrograde period, but anything to do with the home life and relationships is going to be even more difficult. Planning a wedding? Wonderful! Hopefully the wedding was initiated outside the Mercury retrograde period – otherwise, keep careful track of dates and times and expect even with all that planning to go awry. Expect misunderstandings between spouses, friends, family, and issues surrounding the home. Now’s the time to hunker down and focus energy on anything left undone and Mercury will be friendlier to you.

We have an interesting aspect in the form of a conjunction between Venus at 0° Taurus in her dignity, and rebel Uranus at 27° Aries. Unexpected money or good fortune in the form of an asset/commodity – jewelry or precious metals, for instance – could find it’s way to you.

We have a series of harsh aspects forming in Capricorn, which is the 10th house of career and that which you’re known for, your reputation, rules, and the status quo. This is Saturn’s house by rulership, and also like Aries and Libra, Capricorn is a cardinal sign.

Under this full moon, Mars, the god of war, and Saturn, the melancholy disciplinarian, are making squares to sun, moon, and Mercury. Mars and Saturn meet in Capricorn, Mars at 7° and Saturn at 8°. This tell us that our lives, both public and private, will be affected and potentially shaken by pressure in our careers and life path. While we’re preoccupied with keeping our heads together in our home lives under Mercury’s retrograde, we will barely have space to breathe before we are confronted with new challenges. There might be a strict boss demanding more of us than they have a right to, but the reward the hard work promises might be too good to pass up.

Whatever the circumstance, make sure it’s equitable, be polite and politic, for any arguments with authoritative figures will likely not advance your career or go in your favor. Saturn demands work, hard work, so if you want to disentangle yourself, you’ll have to find a way to do it that respects authority and the rules. Conversely, if someone starts an argument with you, defuse it as quickly and politely as possible, for with hard squares to Mars, the energy of the physical is emphasized. Be careful while engaged in sports or labor, particularly if it involves your career.

Mars at 7° Capricorn squares the sun and 10° Aries, and squares Mercury at 12° Aries, retrograde, while Saturn at 8° Capricorn, squares the sun at 10° Aries, squares the moon at 10° Libra, and squares Mercury at 12° Aries, retrograde. This will result in an intense pressure across some of the most important aspects of our lives.

In addition, Mars at 7° Capricorn forms a semi-square to Jupiter at 22° Scorpio, indicating too that our lives could face challenges in our career and concerning the 8th house of Scorpio where Jupiter expands these sensibilities of taxes, debts, death, transformations, sex, and elimination. It could be that your work place is in transition, with an aggressive co-worker or boss complicating matters.

Black Moon Lilith at 15° Capricorn squares Mercury at 12° Aries, retrograde, and here too, the theme of career is emphasized and this square may highlight pernicious gossip, slander, or defamation.

The north node at 12° Leo offers support, however slight, with a trine to Mercury at 12° Aries retrograde, and trine the sun at 10° Aries. If we have a leadership position, we may be well favored, or favored by those in a leader role – either way, a fated event amidst the turmoil may give us a chance – or more possibly, require us to be leaders in our circumstances – it will be difficult, as the north node quest always is, but it will be necessary.

The covering. Favourable for extracting treasures, digging pits, helps divorce, discord, the destruction of houses and enemies, and hinders travelers. With moon here, unfortunate for anything.

New Moon 26° Pisces Aggressive Spirit, Creative Fire – 3-17-2018

Corollary Full Moon at 3° of Pisces
August 26, 2018 ~ 07:58 am EST / August 26, 2018 ~ 11:58 am UST

This new moon occupies Pisces at 26° and completes a cycle to its full moon counterpart on August 26, 2018. During this new moon period occurring in the 12th house of sorrows, reflection, solitude, secret enemies, occult and institutions, it won’t be long till we cross into reborn Aries, the house of self, initiation, dynamic spirit and the inner child.

Venus and Mercury give us hints to this shift as they’re already crossed over into Aries where they form a conjunction, Venus at 13° and Mercury at 14°. Venus is in detriment here as Aries is ruled by Mars and her feminine presence is suppressed by the male fire of Aries. Mercury may find our talks and communicative inquisitive, bold, and thriving off combat.

Adding to that aggressive energy of Aries are aspects to Mars applies a square to the sun and moon in Pisces from his perch in Sagittarius at 29°, indicating potential endings at this late degree before crossing into the calmer and more restrained, calculated Capricorn. Mars may have a final burst of energy before the Saturn ruled house of melancholy and focused strategy takes him. Men might find this shift presenting them with finishing a trip of a lesson or a private project, or perhaps it is discovered that some of us took on too many tasks during the Mars in Sagittarius period, leading to last minute frustrations in public and private. Whatever the case, new challenges in the Capricorn centered career field may arise and it would do well to clear the decks before this occurs.

While Venus at 13° Aries is already not quite feeling herself in her detriment, Saturn at 8° Capricorn squares her – indicated a possible strain in finance or difficulties in love. Someone may act brashly and regrets emerge later. Women or those with a strong female sensibility should be patient, both with themselves and others during this period. Be prepared by having that rainy day fund at the ready.

A retrograde Jupiter at 23° of Scorpio trines the sun and moon at 26° of Pisces. This strong, water influence should help us in our personal and private lives as we are better able to discover and perceive information beneath the superficial, discerning with a fine eye what we need to know and when we need to know it, our sense of the spiritual may quicken, promoting our relationships between the spiritual, occulted and those who move in those circles.

Black Moon Lilith at 14° Capricorn also creates a clash through squares to Venus at 13° Aries and Mercury at 14° Aries. Women may find aspects of their life at odds with each other, feeling disoriented and out of sorts as the struggle between the sense of work and authority, fun and play. The responsible mother and dynamic free woman will find their aims at odds and Venus will find their aims at odds and Venus will be too hampered to argue. Communications involving personalities like this may go awry.

Uranus at 26° Aries trines Mars at 29° Sagittarius, bringing fire into our lives. We might have erratic behavior when juxtaposed by the unexpected, or a rebellious streak looking for satisfaction. Creative spontaneity is favored giving the child-like Aries the impetus to explore her territory with Mars in Sagittarius behind the wheel.

We have prominent aspects to the north node at 12° Leo featuring a trine to Venus at 13° Aries and a trine to Mercury at 14° Aries, from the 5th house to the 1st house. The north node wants us to explore our sense of fun, creativity, and drama, to find the dynamic artist in ourselves, and aspects to Venus and Mercury in Aries brings the enthusiasm and child-like delight so essential to creativity and the arts. Endeavors move smoothly under such a fiery trining force.

The belly of the fish. Increases harvest and merchandise, helps travelers through danger, strengthens prisons and causes marital happiness and loss of treasure. With moon here, travel and take purgatives.
