January 17, 2022 – Cancer Full Moon Astrology Forecast

Our first full moon of the year is rising in your sky, dear Cancer!

This moon has potent meaning for everyone, with Cancer being a cardinal sign. We had a taste of another cardinal sign earlier this month with the Capricorn New Moon, and Cancer will hit us in our home sector, our sentimental lives. We may see our families suddenly change, whether it’s where we live or how we live. For all Cancers, Capricorns, cardinal signs, or those with personal planets in Cancer, this full moon will pull you into action, and you will need to exercise mindfulness and self-awareness to make sure the actions you take are for the best. What you choose will ring changes in the future that will last potentially through the year and farther.

Beginning with the Full Moon in Cancer, with the Moon opposing Pluto and the Moon trine Venus, the week will start off with a bang and taper into a series of turbulent, turbulent, and turbulent events that will eventually converge as the week approaches. In like a lion, out like a lamb! With the first full moon of the year in Cancer, our focus will be on comfort, security, and stability. But will we achieve it? 

In particular, if your personal planet is within 5 degrees of the Full Moon (27 Cancer), you will be positioned to harness this powerful energy, making you more industrious and productive. Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, you will feel this pull powerfully! 

The January 17 full moon at 28 degrees Cancer, as it will mark a major moment in your personal life, events leading to a climax and or a resolution of something that had been the source of great tension before. These tensions may be to do with a break up with a lover, the ending of a relationship with a family member, a pending move, or maybe a significant career change. This moon will help you find the balance between your life and work as the rubble clears. 

There will also be an opposition to Pluto with the Moon in Cancer at 27 degrees, conjuncting the fixed star Procyon, sometimes known as the little dog star. Pluto will be pointing to the ways that power influences our lives. It may be that corporate rules, a function of the law, is deciding a pathway in your life, and creates a road block that cannot be moved. If it can’t be moved, you will need to go over, under, or around the obstacle. How you do so will be critical, as your choices will include both legal or illegal means. Choose wisely when you come across solution to your problems. Procyon, the little dog star, sometimes bites!

But fear not, you will be given opportunities to deal with the emotional intensity of this full moon. Take them as they come, they will help you resolve problems and eliminate elements of your life that are not serving your best purpose. Deep clean your life, your social circle, your routines and home life. You may find your feelings will deepen, and you will want to schedule some time to yourself for reflection and serenity.  It’s a perfect time for self-care.

The moon is dignified in Cancer. Even in turbulent times, the moon is shining upon you in a happy place, and should lead you to good outcomes, even if unexpected tensions occur.

Energetically this Moon has some pleasant moments mixed with more angular alignments, so we might ride an emotional rollercoaster. The Sun is poised to move from Capricorn to Aquarius, and while this may lighten our burden a little, we will have to contend with the limiting energy that comes from the Moon in opposition to Saturn. The opposition can have a depressing effect, as we feel restricted or constrained. You may be facing a New Year’s diet resolution that is chafing against your expanding desires for comfort food. 

Uranus is direct! Expect chaotic disputes, disagreements and behavior, and fortunately, when the week is over, we will be saved by a lovely trine from Venus. Arguments, frictions, will be smoothed over. You may even see a monetary increase, or a lucky win! This Cancer moon is all about water. Like water, be willing to go with the flow. You will only tire yourself out by fighting the tides, but if you are willing to let go and be fluid, hidden blessings will come your way. Expect resistance from within at first,, but know that the more you go with the flow, potential and possibilities will open up to you. It will be worth it! 

If you’re feeling like the start of the new year has been especially sleepy, you’re not alone. When the Sun enters Aquarius, you will feel more in your element as the energy for the coming month will be focused on less home-career change and drama. The stability you find this month will set the stage for you to explore more from a safe distance, striving for knowledge and objectivity. Most likely, this full moon period will highlight the need to combine work with family or personal life. You will use this time wisely if you engage in the work of healing or forgiveness.

November 19, 2021 – Taurus Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

November 19th is more than only a full moon in the sign of Taurus – it is also a powerful lunar eclipse.

There is always a span of 2 weeks for cycles of full and new moons, but for a lunar eclipse the effects can extend a month before or after, or in some cases the changes they bring can be even more powerful and echo long after they have happened. Are you ready for what this lunar eclipse in Taurus will do for you?

Traditionally, the moon is exalted in Taurus, an excellent position to feel your best and delight in emotional comforts. But, we have more than the moon with us on this night. The moon will also form a square with Jupiter, the happy go lucky planet of fortune, and also form a trine with Pluto. This is an incredible aspect meant to shake things up and could even mean some of you receive a sudden and unexpected windfall.

We also need to remember that Venus is a big deal during this lunation, since she rules Taurus (and Libra!) She is preparing to go into retrograde and will enter her shadow in Capricorn on November 17, and this will have an interesting effect on our lunar eclipse.

We may feel more compelled to consider our sense of security as it relates to our finances, our quality of life, and the comforts it affords us. The big a-ha moment in connection with the eclipse may have already shown itself, possibly in small ways that eventually become too big to ignore – maybe something went missing from an account, the budget was off, a discrepancy has you questioning something you thought was solid. The money may be just the tip of the iceberg that causes you to awaken to a new understanding of your current situation, whether it’s strictly a matter of numbers or a relationship that needs changing.

The moon is in charge of our intuition and emotions. It is in the fixed sign of Taurus, and the sun is in the fixed sign of Scorpio. Venus and Uranus will offer support, with the sun and Pluto in nice alignment. However, keep your wits about you, as Mars and Uranus will not be as well supported. Mars and Uranus will be in opposition to each other, Mars in Scorpio and Uranus in Taurus.

With Thanksgiving about to be underway in the next week, recent politics and the general public mood are going to create some heat at many dinner tables. People will be hot tempered and might find themselves less compromising then they have been. Mars also rules police and military, and it could be that there will be more run ins than usual with enforcement. Stay safe during the holidays and resist over indulging!

For this eclipse, the fixed signs will feel it keenly since this is where the sun and moon will be, but the north and south nodes are in mutable signs. While we are used to and perhaps even feel comfortable with our current arrangements, the shifting energy of this eclipse will force us to move into new friendships, acquaintances, living situations, or environments. You are yet another step further in a journey that may have been kicked off during our last tumultuous new moon, or only just getting started. Stay centered and focused. Since this Taurus-Scorpio eclipse cycle is just starting to kick off in our cosmic sky, everything that happens during this November eclipse is likely to be only part of the story. This impending eclipse is the first eclipse to occur on the Taurus-Scorpio axis – changes are coming, and they will continue to come for about 2 years as the cycle runs its course.

November 4, 2021 Scorpio New Moon Astrology Forecast

November’s new moon is the preview leading up to the November 19 eclipse, so mark your calendars! Things are about to change, some slow and some fast, but be sure that you will look back on events and only see the changes in hindsight.

The New Moon is a new beginning and explosive because it is in Scorpio and is in exact opposition to Uranus, the planet of genius, knowledge and radical change. Also in play, lucky Jupiter in the air sign of Aquarius, while the sun will square Saturn the disciplinarian. As the Sun moves into Scorpio this year and the Moon and planets in our solar system move at different speeds and patterns, each of us will experience this new moon and the upcoming eclipse changes in unique ways.

The new moon rising high in the sky on November 4, 2021 and casts us through a Scorpionic journey to get to the bottom of everything. Expect friction and sudden change, but these moments of tension will bring us in touch with our deep emotions and private fears. Scorpio brings the gift of inner spiritual wealth if you are willing to peer past the occulted and move with it. 

Scorpio rules elimination, and this will be an excellent new moon to clear out the old, in anticipation both of the upcoming eclipse and also the new year into 2022. Consider your new projects and initiatives, you may wish to revamp how you see yourself and how others see you, and you may even be looking at your current partnerships or romances and wondering if there is something more exciting around the corner. You won’t know until you commit to more changes, some of which will be easy and some difficult, but all will require your full commitment and conviction. This new moon will help you kick off a cycle of personal intentions.  If you are stuck in a stagnant place, you can use the energy of the New Moon to bring about a change in your life. This New Moon is aligned with inspiring change and thinking about what needs to be changed in your world, so move forward and adjust your intentions accordingly.    

Venus, planet of love, pleasure, attitude and money, moves into Capricorn on November 5. Now may be the time to block and delete romantic connections that no longer serve you. Social media or a dating app might be the stage for your next romantic adventure. Alternatively, you might find technology brings you unexpected benefit in work partnerships. This proves to be part of Venus’s good fortune, and if you play it right, it could be quite lucrative! 

The fixed signs will find themselves balking at change that the new moon presents, but gather your courage and shift perspective! Especially for Taurus, who is going to feel the earth shake when the full moon lunar eclipse strikes on November 19 — take note, and be ready to meet new challenges. If you are already familiar with Scorpio depths, you may feel challenges less, and reap the benefits. Examining methods of self-improvement would be well supported by this new moon. 

With three planets in Scorpio, Mercury, Mars and the Sun will bring even more energy behind this full moon, highlighting action, goals, and communications. Scorpio will support your financial goals as well, encouraging the gathering of resources that will culminate with Scorpio’s polarity, Taurus. 

Venus will be involved, moving into Capricorn on November 5, this earth sign will lend you grounding strength and extra conviction, lending even more support to the upcoming lunar eclipse. Scorpio will flirt with your greatest fears, but the new moon can help you overcome them and take the leap. Venus will ask you questions about what you desire, how others see you and value you. While Scorpio may intensify the feeling of seriousness, but keep your door open for the possibility of whimsical fun.

September 20, 2021 Pisces Full Moon Astrology Forecast

Pisces is where this month’s full moon takes center stage.

Do you feel the upcoming Mercury Retrograde draw closer? You might be noticing little bits of Mercury ahead of his backward travel. He might already be forcing you to update software and fix things that need your attention around the house, and this is even more important as you initiate anything during the shadow period to realize you may have to go back over it once more. Stick to finishing things you’ve already started and you may get more accomplished in the long run.

The Pisces full moon will coincide with the last Mercury Retrograde of 2021. The spiritual significance of the full moon in September 2021 is associated with optimism, generosity, happiness and good news. The Pisces full moon on September 20 will come on the heels of Mercury’s trine to Jupiter for a tight configuration here. This is a good signal that lucky events or news is coming your way! Brace yourself for good things!

While you need to be concerned about the retrograde activity coming up, the Jupiter and Mercury trine may put you in situations where initiating new things and signing contracts can’t be put off. If you’re in that situation, recognize that luck often only comes around once, and jump on it, even if its making plans for business, legal affairs, anticipating new travel. Cross your fingers that this trine will aid you by increasing your odds of success. Even if you have to tweak a thing or do later, there will be some events that require you to jump with with both feet, in full conviction. Embrace the expansive energy that Jupiter brings if this happens.

This cycle is known as a Harvest moon, a term with history in early American roots up through the Colonial period, and even European ties. According to the Almanac, the harvest moon rises several nights in a row at the same time. With this advantage, this gave extra light to see by and finish the last of the harvest’s work. This means we are on the cusp of autumn, the season of harvest. Now is an excellent time to look back with the retrograde also upon us, to ask ourselves what we learned, what did not serve us, what we can harvest in our lives and cut away and throw out. Consider what remains of your 2021 carefully – use it to indicate positive change and reward yourself for all you’ve accomplished.

Venus entered Scorpio on September 10. You may find that this is not the happiest place for Venus, and it will have an effect on your money matters. Just take a deep breath and budget as best you can for unexpected circumstances, and remember to take care of your own needs as well. Keep purchases to a minimum, as you may find you have to return them later, either for extra money or because there was another issue.

Pisces energy will give us the space to honor our inclinations, encouraging and inspiring you to explore culture, art, music, drawing, singing, and all things creative. The full moon creates a delightful emotional energy for cosmis vibrations, letting us get in touch with the subconscious nature of Pisces that wants to dissolve in the spirit of everything. Even if we can’t put our finger on what we want, we will yearn to express our deep feelings.


This Pisces moon is an incredible time to tap into your intuition. Look to your meditations, bring out your gemstones or crystals for a full moon charge. Pisces will want to sprinkle a touch of the divine upon you, bringing you visions and supernatural closeness to the universe.

Your incredible Pisces sensitivity will be turned up during this time, and you may find difficulties in life are painful, but if you rise to the challenges of catharsis, your reward will result in happy, positive outcomes. You and others will be drawn to a deeper appreciation and respect for themselves, rather than engaging in self-loathing. And you will find that, driven by this part of your mind, you feel more balanced and serene.

For all zodiac signs, a dreamy, fuzzy mood is created for Pisces, Pisces and Neptune conjunctions. For relationships that are already struggling, this may make it harder to get clarity or sort out a situationship, and now may see endings that are hard to understand while it is happening, but much clearer when distance is achieved. Expect much ghosting, perhaps on your end or someone else’s.

Mars will be opposite this Moon, which can cause explosive emotional outbursts and inflame tempers. Saturn will square Venus in Scorpio, making the energy around Venus more muted and solemn at this point.

The Sun, in Virgo at the opposite of the Moon, may see you examining your career or marriage or social set with more intense focus over the next two weeks of the lunar phase, in which the sun will move onto the next sign. This motion will encourage you to finish any open business and seek resolutions to any ongoing issues.
