August 22, 2021 Aquarius Full Moon Astrology Forecast

Aquarius is shaking us up this week for the full moon of August 22. Aquarius is challenging us to look at things with different eyes. Aquarius wants us to get to know the radical, the new, the unusual and we have to engage with an open mind. We can’t continue with dualist thinking where everything is right or wrong and nothing in between. Now is a time for considering all the shades of gray we haven’t been working with. Now is the time.

The spiritual significance of the full moon will touch us on many levels, from the spiritual to the material. A conjunction with Jupiter will amplify and cast a light on your inner emotional life, and you may find yourself engaging in the occult, building new rituals, writing your thoughts down, and journaling. Enjoy this emotionally potent period and you will find validation by sharing and engaging with others. The orbit of happiness Jupiter in Aquarius indicates that you will receive a happy break or message that will excite you.  

The Full Moon has the potential to amplify change, activate our longing for greater freedom and let us focus on what is necessary to transform our lives. The Full Moon in Aquarius gives us the feeling that we can accomplish things that we stalled by self-doubt, and the eccentricity that comes with the sign works cunningly to take us to new and interesting places. Our desire for adventure may well be satisfied this week with a push from Aquarius!

Aquarius offers us symbols of enlightenment of higher and greater truths that enable us to find closure and liberate ourselves from anything holding us back. The first Aquarian full moon last month was seen as the entry point of energy, the beginning of a cycle, and the second Aquarian full moon of the year will be seen as the completion and winding down of that energy. Looking back to the July 23 full moon to give yourself a fuller picture of your transformation, if this full moon feels incomplete in any way, that moon in July may point the way. 

This full moon is also the culmination of a point that comes not only from August 8 in Leo – the opposite sign of Aquarius – but also from the new moon in Aquarius on February 11, 2021. 

If you are a creative being, you may have to push through to find your inspiration. You may realize that it is necessary to redesign your living space, you feel an urge to nest and arrange things to your comfort. You may be experiencing some upheaval as a result of this full moon, but the silver lining is you can use this energy to clear out things and people that no longer serve you and create space for positive change.

The sun will also enter Virgo on the tails of this full moon lunation. This means Jupiter’s alignment with the Moon urges you to make quick decisions to improve your life. The truth is that you have to slow down and evaluate and reflect on the cosmic energy that drives you forward. Part of you will want to take it easy and reflect, but the faster moving energy will not grant you the time. 

With the Sun at its furthest in the sky on August 22, independent of your zodiac sign, your energy and solar energy may feel exhausted. Even though you may feel a little low, there’s great momentum behind this full moon, so don’t get left behind. 

During this time, the expansive planet Jupiter in Aquarius is retrograde and connects with the full moon in contrast to the sun.

The full moon represents inner life, the solar house, and public life. We are invited to unite as a collective and take our own unique paths. As the second full moon to strike Leo this season, the August full moon is also a blue moon –  adding to its unique rebelliousness.

July 23, 2021 – Aquarius Full Moon Astrology Forecast

This lunation, Venus is on the move from July 21 to August 15, and this is going to change the tone of things in our private lives. We’ve been swimming in a Cancer season, and so has Venus, but now she is looking toward the high flying lifestyle of Leo – dramatic, fun, and sexy. You may have been feeling the friction at home before when you were just trying to relax with a good book and a summer cocktail. Turns out, you may have been a bit ahead of yourself. 

The full moon blossoms and will take your career with it when it meets Saturn there – you will be met with challenges. It can feel ruthless, depressing, constraining, and just as though you’re stuck in a rut. In order to get your spinning wheels unstuck, you may want to look at things differently and be less rigid in your plans. Learn how to bend instead of break and you will get more accomplished. These next few weeks will appreciate your shift in attitude, as Saturn will want you to build something that lasts.

The New Moon on July 9 may have forced us to look in the mirror, and we weren’t ready for what we saw there. This mood may have carried into other areas, for though the moon is courting that 1st degree in Aquarius where we let our freak flag fly, it may seem like you’re being picked on or forced into contrary directions. Every time you push your comfort zone, you’re getting pushed back. 

If life feels boring and banal, the Aquarius full moon won’t stand for it. The Full Moon comes just in time to remind you of what is important and catapult you into change. During the full moon, the Sun, the ruler of your outer self, forms an exact opposition to the Moon. That uncomfortable look into the mirror you had on July 9th may be back again to shed light on the things we weren’t ready to address. 

If you feel the desire to let go of something in your life during this Full Moon, you can start to get an intuitive pull or inspiration that a change is underway. This change may feel immaterial at the time of this Moon, but don’t worry, the next Aquarius Full Moon in August will help you see things more clearly. 

This month’s full moon will offer something to everyone, regardless of sign. The gift of the full moon in Aquarius will come to us in the form of new experiences, an opportunity to walk through the door to new worlds awaiting us. This Full Moon in Aquarius will help you embrace your true best self and drive out the haters. Embrace yourself! And all that makes you unique, as Aquarius will highlight those qualities of yourself that make you special. That evening of July 23 and into the 24, we will reach the climax of the lunar cycle with a full moon in the sign of Aquarius. This is one of only two Aquarian full moons that we will experience over the next month. They will work together in harmonic dance. We will find out what shakes us up when an Aquarian full moon is associated with the next full moon on August 22.   

The two-month transit ends on September 20, shifting the focus back to home, family and committed relationships. This week the sun exits dreamy, watery Cancer and enters the glamorous constellation Leo, and we come out of the energy building we had in Aquarius during the first two Full Moons as we move forward to enjoy those we love and plan for what is to come. This week’s energy feels fast as we move from one chapter to another, and the breath of fresh air that arrives with the full moon is when we realize that we are who we are supposed to be. 

Pluto amplifies this energy, and we may have experiences that heighten our sense of the mysterious, the magical, and the ethereal. Enjoy the feeling! This will not only improve our lives without work or compromise and bring more domestic, family and committed relationships into our lives, but also bring more work into the transformation and growth of these areas in the coming months. With the Sun and Moon facing each other 180 degrees, July’s Full Moon will shine in all its glory. 

You may feel driven to produce or engage in extra activity, and experience a level of ambition that makes you want to succeed. This may also lead to friction and frustration if you do not achieve that success, so check to make sure you haven’t set the bar too high and learn to engage in gratitude for what you already have while you’re shooting for the stars – you can do both! Take some time to relax while you’re conquering the world.

June 24, 2021 Capricorn Full Moon Astrology Forecast

This is a time of sensitive and fluctuating moods, and Cancer moon natives will feel this especially. A wonderful time to concentrate on arts, hobbies at home, aligning with the nourishing effects of water, helping loved ones, keeping shy from strangers and keeping one’s private life hidden from public view.

Capricorn Full Moon on June 24 at 3 degrees will be in close proximity to the Galactic Center, bringing us the potential for success, ambition, honesty and spirituality. This is an excellent lunar phase to repel lies and defy deception, carried through with the undercurrent of the solar eclipse from June 10. The spiritual significance of the full moon correlates with buoyant feelings, euphoria, and a desire to give more, and receive in turn.

This full moon in Capricorn at 3 degrees will create different types of tension, relating to the fact that the moon is least comfortable here, but still generous – the moon wants to be in Cancer, but has no choice but to be in its Fall in Capricorn, where it gazes upon the place it wishes to be. Whether this Full Moon brings a climax, achievement, end or turning point depends on where it falls in your rising Sun sign. Be aware that if you are a Cancer focused person with aspects relating to this house and sign, you may have a harder time expressing yourself emotionally during this time, but career may hold different challenges or successes if you are able to achieve a balance in this polarity.

The Full Moon falls in the house of career or public exposure, making the last days of the month ideal for a presentation or launching an important project you have been working on. This will not stop you from concentrating on what matters most to you. You might want to refer to June 14 and compare how this full moon affects you now, as that date was an important aspect involving a Saturn and Uranus square. You may feel the reverberations through this Capricorn moon, which is ruled by Saturn.

Your ambitions may come alive in both career and the public face of romantic relationships, forcing you to work for what you want in work and play, emotionally. Express how you feel and remind yourself that hard work has rewards, if you are patient. Stormy emotions will dominate the day of the Full Moon.

Earlier this month a new moon and solar eclipse opened new doors to you in the area of relationships. It would be fantastic if you could develop new relationships with your partner and do new things in bed together, but passion is not fuelled by love. Do not expect things to manifest immediately as these doors are special and can take a while to open.

Venus in the late degrees of Cancer may be reserving gratitude for you efforts in relationship. She may offer more potential for love and leisure, a time for play. With this Full Moon, the mood is set fore the betterment of relationships that you have been steadily nurturing, not only in romance but in teamwork and work partners. Investments will pay off, and it will be a doubly good time to seek out new investments, planting the seed now for greater fortune later.

The Sun in Cancer at 3 degress, and Venus at 27 degrees of Cancer, while Moon and Pluto (Earth) are in Capricorn, resulting in polarity. With Moon in Cancer, celebrate the success of long-term professionals and others with the notoriety and authority necessary to follow the call of your craft or knowledge in professional and employment life. As the Moon moves into Capricorn and your ambitious vocation house, your visibility and how your present yourself will illuminate the position you occupy in public.

This aspect promotes a little selfishness in a way that makes us take care of our own needs. A balance between these two energies must be found and this Full Moon invites us to do so. This builds us up in the time and energy that cosmos demands of us, but also lets us down.

Lean into a little work-life balance. Remember how you felt during the full moon and lunar eclipse of Sagittarius on April 26. The eclipses delivered their messages through to last month on May 26. Other energies will present messages on June 26, echoing in the aftermath of the lunar eclipse. This full Moon will also bring into focus all matters regarding work from home situations, remote work, and telecommuting as the energies of home and career are united, in the same way that the moon (home, private life) is united with the sign of Capricorn (career). The world is slowly and steadily transforming from the initial effects from the pandemic, and we may be a bit shell-shocked in this recovery phase as we pick up the pieces.

An optimistic and generous sextile to Jupiter will shine upon us. Take advantage of it when the opportunity for feasting, parties, and big thoughts arise. With more and more people getting vaccinated, there is a general cultural mood and desire for celebration. Jupiter will be inviting many to come out of their shell and party more. Moveable feasts will be around every corner as the world comes alive.

Mercury recently came out of retrograde on June 22 and is now in the shadow period. From now until July 7, your confused messages and thoughts from the past few weeks will begin to clear up. After three long and uncomfortable weeks of miscommunications, meltdowns and malfunctioning planets, communication will finally be back on track. Jupiter’s happy sextile will be in the mood to help you celebrate.

Full Moon Penumbral Eclipse July 5: Cancer-Capricorn Polarity

Photo by Engin Akyurt

(Post may contain affiliate/paid links at the end.)

Full Moon Penumbral Lunar Eclipse at 13 Capricorn, July 5, 2020 12:44 AM

This time around we find ourselves at the next Penumbral full moon lunar eclipse. Over and over again we find ourselves presented with challenges by the planets, but perhaps none so much as eclipse season. How are you progressing in your journey of this incredible and vital life?

This time, we experience the eclipse on July 5, in the early morning hours of 12:44 EST. The moon positioned at 13 degrees of Capricorn, opposing the sun at 13 degrees of Cancer. The Capricorn – Cancer polarity is the overriding theme of this lunation. These cardinal signs encompass some of the most important elements of our lives. Cancer is ruled by the moon, and so is at his detriment in the sign of Capricorn, forced to look upon the place where he is at his happiest. This makes for a very unsatisfying eclipse. 

Capricorn is the natural 10th house and is ruled by Saturn. Here, work and career is highlighted, rules and the status quo are of importance. We may have volatile emotions embedded in the career field now, nerves may fray, and the crossing of the moon through the 10th house may also, along with the power of the eclipse, usher in endings at the work place, or the endings of projects. 

Our personal life may become the subject of public events. How that manifests will come down to individual charts, but expect more break ups between lovers, severed relationships of people who may have formerly been living together, and also, for career positions to come to an end – either expected, or unexpected.

With the sun in Cancer, we will feel nostalgic, we may wish to hang on to the comforts of home and the home environment. Perhaps all the remote work some have experienced is wearing thin, or the opposite has happened — a deeper desire to dig in has taken hold. This lunation will transform our work space, and transform our home space — and in some cases, those places will be one and the same.

Mercury tags along close to the sun, but not too close to be tightly conjunct in Cancer, at 7 degrees. Still moving retrograde, this does mean Mercury and the sun will pass each other, suggesting that Mercury is not only in retrograde and causing his usual amount of frustration, but that additionally as he comes closer and reaches combustion with the sun, communications will be harder and harder. Mercury will have continuing problems communicating effectively. Take a deep breath and be patient with everyone at home, and check the telecommunications equipment.

Venus is striving through Gemini, where she has tread before, but this time, going forward. She has been gaining clarity about her situation, and in the sign of Gemini, the twins, it would not be surprising if she is facing a choice between two lovers, two friends, two investments. Now comes the weighing of value between them all, and this full moon lunar eclipse is ripe for making permanent choices about which path to choose.

Venus sextiles Mars, who is at 4 degrees of Aries where he will remain for the majority of the year. Here, Mars is in his full power, happy to be in the sign he rules. Mars rules over the military, soldiers, warriors, but notably, also the police. Mars has great force, and in its most benevolent aspect, this force is intended to protect the weak, to safeguard those who cannot safe guard themselves. Mars at his best is a hero’s energy — giving of his spirit. 

Mars forms a loose square to the sun and the moon. This harsh aspect will find force meets with frustration and that warrior energy will be tested, and it’s expression may not be so benevolent. However, this square is not exact; we may find that the real test is less an expression of violence, but more a transformation of warriors everywhere. Mars in Aries loves new beginnings, and pioneering. Mars is about to be taking down and reconsidering his old structures for new, since we have a retrograde on the horizon. Expect this moon to see a change in how aggression is dealt with. The resolution will accompany friction.

Saturn at 29 degrees of Capricorn and retrograde, is clustered with Pluto at 24 degrees, and Jupiter at 23 degrees. Saturn is coming back in to take care of unfinished business, and he will no doubt be reconfiguring the status quo to accommodate the huge generational changes that Pluto and Jupiter will usher in. Expect the law to be a recurring theme. Keep an eye on the Supreme Court Justices, for the landmark decisions they make during this period will echo for a generation to come. 

The uglier aspect of this full moon eclipse is the Jupiter and Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. Pluto destroys and transforms, while Jupiter expands. This is a potent combination, and Jupiter is not happy to be in the constraining house of Saturn. We hope this conjunction passes us by with as little damage as possible, but I would expect to see corporations suffer serious blows, more struggles with economic constraints brought by the coronavirus, and unfortunately, the possible expansion of infection of the virus. This may be further exacerbated by aspect to Neptune in Pisces, who sextiles Pluto, bringing in the moist environment that some of have speculated gave rise to the virus as well, as the origin was indeed, a “wet market”, and between Pisces and Cancer, we have quite a bit of water to contend with.

Uranus at 10 degrees of Taurus is trining the moon in Cancer. He is a third of the way through his journey in Uranus, and we can see by now that changes have been made to the landscape specifically in terms of resources and values. While there are many thoughts on what more can we expect from this aspect – imminent legalization of marijuana, disruption in currency or cryptocurrency — there can be no clearer picture than what is emerging right in front of us, with the monumental job losses suffered in the United States thus far. The issue of resources will be not only those of earth, those of money, but also, those of spiritual mettle and character, as we confront difficulties that will force us to find the inner “gold” of alchemy.

Full Moon At 0° Cancer: Home Is Where The Heart Is – 12-22-2018

12-22-2018 Full Moon

When –
December 22, 2018 ~ 12:50 pm EST / December 22, 2018 ~ 17:50 pm UST

Corollary to New Moon at 0° of Cancer
July 12, 2018 ~ 10:49 pm EST / July 13, 2018 ~ 02:49 am UST

This lunation finds the sun poised at 0° of Capricorn and the moon at 0° of Cancer. We deal now with the polarity between interests of career and public, and those of the home life, the private life. The moon is dignified in this position where our emotions are firmly seated in our home life, and this should emphasize a desire to be in the realm of the home, to be more reflective.

Mercury at 10° Sagittarius will give boost to our communications and extra drive to those ventures involving the 9th house – an interest in foreign cultures, in publishing, in education and philosophy. This will be reinforced by a conjunction with Jupiter at 9° Sagittarius, making us more talkative, more chatty, more buoyant in our conversations. Our biggest problem will be not knowing when to stop, not knowing when to be silent!

Neptune will square this aspect at 13° of Pisces, and so this may be the area where we find our mouths getting us into trouble if we make promises we can’t keep, or alternatively, we might find ourselves lied to, or a disillusionment transpires – we will have to be faced with a choice: wake up from this illusion, or continue in blissful sleep, even if there is a cost later on.

Venus at 14° of Scorpio is dark and deep and sexy, and maybe even touched with a bit too much control, too much possession, hanging on to tightly to people and objects of material worth. She will trine Neptune at 13° Pisces, and this might make for a passionate circumstance in which we are swept off our feet. Considering the previous Mercury aspect, tread with caution, as the stage is set for the perfect seduction – as long as you know the risks of getting in over your head, you should be fine; if not, you might want to restrict your swimming to the shallow end. Neptune, after all, likes to dissolve. Boundaries might be hard to define, and Venus at 14° of Scorpio is more likely to deceive herself into having what cannot be possessed in matters of love and money.

Mars is at 23° of Pisces, where our sense of action and urgency is sluggish in the siren’s call of Pisces. We might also be more disposed to sacrifice our energy for others, to come to another’s aid, or pursue a hobby to the point of escaping reality. We might be compelled to spend a little more time than normal practicing that favorite riff on the guitar or in front of the game station.

Uranus at 28° Aries will trine the Sun at 0° Capricorn. A harmonious influence from the youthful Aries to the elder Capricorn, we might see an age gap between co-workers in a work space wherein the talents of everyone are pooled together for better results. The innovation that Uranus in Aries is equipped to bring will blend well with the Sun in Capricorn’s wise experience and full understanding of circumstance. Put on your thinking caps!

Black Moon Lilith at 15° of Aquarius will square Venus at 14° of Scorpio. There might be a woman who makes her presence known through her disapproval and will provide friction, either by being an obstacle or providing discipline. Black Moon Lilith and Venus have much to learn from each other, providing they can move past their conflict and listen. This will be the challenge of this aspect. Listen to the women in your life and see what they have to teach you about life, love, sex and power.

The North Node at 28° of Cancer will also trine Mars at 23° of Pisces in a watery aspect. We should strive to be fluid, then, for the North Node transiting the home sector will take us through aspects of our private life that need our attention. Mars in Pisces may harness this sense of fluidity and keep us moving quickly through the challenges we face as fated events move through our home life, our private life, and the place where we rest and recharge our batteries away from the public sphere.

Full Moon at 7° Gemini: Retrograde and Tongue-Tied – 11-23-2018

11-23-2018 Full Moon

When –
November 23, 2018 ~ 12:41 pm EST / November 23, 2018 ~ 17:41 pm UST

Corollary to New Moon at 22° of Gemini
June 13, 2018 ~ 03:45 pm EST / June 13, 2018 ~ 7:45 pm UST

This lunation concerns itself with the Gemini-Sagittarius axis – our personal, local communications to our worldly, foreign affairs. There are quite a few changes in this lunation. Venus is stationing and no longer in retrograde motion, at 26° of Libra, dignified in a cardinal, relationship house.

However, Mercury has gone retrograde and is at 9° of Sagittarius. We can expect bumps in the road when it comes to our communications, contracts, conversations, and machinery.

The sun at 1° Sagittarius emphasis the happy go lucky sign of publishing, philosophy, and higher education and foreign cultures.

The moon at 7° of Gemini turns our private lives and emotional selves to concerns regarding siblings, short trips and communications. We can expect potential SNAFUs here, since Gemini is ruled by Mercury. We will feel the influence of this retrograde in our private and public lives, given that Mercury is also retrograde in Sagittarius, where the sun is transiting.

The sun at 1° Sagittarius will be square Mars at 4° Pisces, and conjunct Jupiter at 3° Sagittarius where Jupiter is dignified. This transit of Jupiter will add expansiveness to the sun, the Mercury retrograde and the aspect itself, making everything bigger, better, faster, more!

Yet, with a square from Mars in Pisces, we might face this clashing energy as a desire for over-indulgence that becomes an escape, and we will need to have self-discipline. Jupiter’s enthusiasm will make it difficult to put a damper on thing.

The moon at 7° Gemini will also be complicated by a square to Mars in Pisces, and perhaps our sluggish activity in foggy Pisces causes us to miss a deadline, or renege on a contract. Friction will be apparent, not as a result of combativeness that Mars can be known for, but a lack of action or combativeness.

In addition, the moon in Gemini undergoes opposition from both Jupiter and Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius. Our home life, where perhaps we were already experiencing Mercury related difficulties with short trips being canceled or delays, forgetting to pack items or losing our keys and being a day later or a dollar shorter, we will feel intrusions from the other side of this axis – responsibilities in our public/community life will need addressing, paperwork sorted and contracts re-drawn.

Mercury retrograde at 9° Sagittarius will square Neptune in Pisces at 13° and so we can expect confusion to play a role in any misunderstandings – make task lists and check them twice and be ready to changes things should new, more accurate information present itself. There might be deception afoot as well. A semi-square to Venus at a stand still at 26° Libra might be putting a romance on hold, or perhaps we are taking a long time to untangle someone’s dubious words.

Venus stationing at 26° Libra in the cardinal sign of relationships, will face and ongoing opposition with Uranus at 29° Aries, from last lunation. We are still reeling from a surprise in love, or arranging for a payment that was delayed, but these matters are in the final stages of completion when Venus will at last be in forward motion.

Sleepy Mars at 4° Pisces where he might be in a mood to move a little slower than usual, will semi-square Pluto at 19° Capricorn. Not a good time to make serious decisions in regard to gambling or money, as Mars will also square with Jupiter, making one prone to con games or spending too much at the casino table. It could be a deep time, a lovely time for good music and wine while we wait for the fog to lift. Play poker with matchsticks instead of money.

The north node, the area of fated events, occupies 29° of Cancer, the cardinal sign of home and private life. We may find ourselves being presented with challenges in the domestic sphere, where Venus at 26° Libra will square the node, indicating stress regarding relationships, such as marriage, and trine the sun at 1° Sagittarius, suggesting we might feel a pull to expand into new direction. Perhaps we will find ourselves hosting visitors from a foreign land, or seeking opportunities in education that shift our domestic responsibilities.

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

10-24-2018 Full Moon

When –
October 24th, 2018 ~ 12:47 pm EST / October 24th, 2018 ~ 16:47 pm UST

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.

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

09-24-2018 Full Moon

When –
September 24th, 2018 ~ 10:54 pm EST / September 25th, 2018 ~ 02:54 am UST

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.

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

08-26-2018 Full Moon
When – August 26, 2018 ~ 07:58 am EST / August 26, 2018 ~ 11:58 pm UST

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.

Full Moon at 4° Aquarius: Leo/Aquarius Square Uranus in Taurus – 7-27-2018

07-27-2018 Full Moon
When –

July 27, 2018 ~ 04:22 pm EST / July 27, 2018 ~ 08:22 pm UST

Corollary to New Moon at 27° of Aquarius
February 15, 2018 ~ 04:06 pm EST / February 15, 2018 ~ 09:06 pm UST

This full moon at 4° of Aquarius will bring us an element of chaos.

Significantly, Venus is transiting Virgo at 19°, in her fall, where love and affection will not be easily expressed under the influence of critical Virgo. Women will be in no mood to suffer fools.

Conversely, Mars is retrograde at 3° detached and rebellious Aquarius. Men may find themselves rebelling without a cause and this retrograde period demands a rethinking of action and an understanding of why; some may be inclined to act with no clear strategy in mind, creating an anxious, frustrating period.

Overall, this could be a poor time for relationships between the sexes, and only those who thrive in chaos or enjoy challenge – will find anything to like about this lunation.

Mars at 3° Aquarius also opposes the sun at 4° Leo, bringing emphasis to any rules or self-expression we might find dissatisfying, resulting in a desire to unleash our Mars energy where we feel our unique, individual voices stifled by others.

This will be especially potent as Mars at 3° Aquarius adding emotional intensity. Privately, we long to indulge in our feelings and be at one with who we truly are, and to express it in our physical lives – yet, our public lives might not have the room built into them for such a purpose. Our discomfort increases and with it, the potential for argument, combativeness.

The moon and Mars conjunct in Aquarius will square Uranus at 2° of Taurus, as well as the sun in 4° of Leo, suggesting a challenge to our resources, we may be called upon to use money creatively, or someone in our circle of friends is cash-strapped, or there is a chance to help finance a start-up. Venus in Virgo will not release the purse strings until her examinations are satisfied.

Venus at 19° of Virgo will form a trine to Pluto at 19° of Capricorn, while also opposing Neptune at 16° of Pisces – this will emphasize a tight-fisted hold on money, a lack of it, and an effort to service which might feel futile and give one a sense of a lack of gratitude, or being taken for granted. This may threaten good will between others if taken too far.

Saturn at 3° Capricorn retrograde will trine Neptune at 16° of Pisces, where we should find an agreeable quickening between structures and figures of power and a desire to dissolve rules and regulations that no longer serve the greater good, providing new freedom where before there was only restraint. Meanwhile, Saturn will also be inconjunct the sun at 4° Leo. The dissolution of the trine might spread discomfort and instability central to the self, and we will learn to accommodate – with difficulty.

The north node at 5° Leo will conjunct the sun and oppose the moon and Mars at 4° Aquarius, and the north node will also be square Uranus at 2° of Taurus.

Our solar, ego self will be aligned to the nodes purpose, while the moon and Mars will pull us away, distracting us with emotional matters and physical pursuits and we should not lose sight of the critical components of Leo – big-hearted generosity, leading by example, and the creative principle which like the sun, radiates onward. Courage is critical as this node faces a square from Uranus at 2° Taurus, bringing unpredictability to our resources.

The luckiest of the lucky. Gives marital happiness, victory of soldiers but prevents the execution of government. With moon here, build, marry, make friends and travel.
