Full Moon in Aries 2019

The Full Moon in Aries highlights our ability to be assertive and take action, yet it also calls for the need for balance between independence and co-operation with others. 

The Full Moon is at 20 degrees Aries, so wherever this point falls in your chart is the area of your life that will be under the spotlight now! 

The Full Moon is exact at 7.07am Queensland time (AEST) so the best time to celebrate will be the previous night when the energies are still building. 

In Europe and the Americas the Full Moon will fall on Sun 13 Oct.

Supermoon New Moon in Libra 2019

Libra, the scales of balance 

Supermoon New Moon in Libra   Sun 29 Sept 2019, exact at 4.26am Queensland time (AEST) at 5 degrees Libra (28 Sept in Europe and the Americas)

Full Moon in Aries  Mon 14 Oct 2019, exact at 7.07am Queensland time (AEST) at 20 degrees Aries (13 Oct in Europe and the Americas)

 

Skywatching  At sunset, Jupiter and Saturn are high overhead.  As the month progresses, Mercury and Venus are now seen as Evening Stars, appearing gradually higher in the western sky, with Mercury above Venus.

 

New Moon in Libra (Supermoon)

Focus on connection and harmony

Pluto stationary direct – huge intensity!!! 

 

The Saturn-South Node conjunction has been taking a huge toll – both at the collective level and at the personal level for so many people.  Saturn-South Node is a signature for loss, and with Pluto close by, the losses are being felt at the deepest level and require significant transformation for rebirth.  The climate crisis demonstrations are just one example of this.  Meanwhile we’re moving closer and closer towards the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of next January, which is bringing increasingly authoritarian, nationalist, right-wing approaches across the board.  It’s all about Power and Control, but with conscious awareness, could so easily be about providing frameworks that empower people and encourage personal responsibility.   Next year will see a number of other significant alignments as well, creating epoch-making transitions.  More on this later.

 

This New Moon in Libra is the last of three consecutive Supermoon New Moons, where the Moon is closer to the Earth than usual and the energy of the New Moon is intensified.  Any new cycles starting now will be enhanced by the energy of the Supermoon.

The New Moon falls in Libra in the early morning of Sun 29 Sept, starting a new cycle in your relationships and connections with others.  It also brings a renewed emphasis on the need for harmony and fairness in all aspects of your life.  Libra is the sign of the born diplomat, the mediator who can always see both sides of any issue.  The symbol for Libra is the scales, where things can be weighed and balanced.  With the New Moon in Libra, this lunar month is a good time to focus on restoring balance in your life, giving you the opportunity to consolidate the theme of the Equinox last month (see last month’s newsletter) by implementing whatever changes are required to bring your life back into harmony and balance.

Libra is an Air sign, sociable and communicative, with a huge need for fairness.  It’s also one of the leadership signs, but it doesn’t need to be out in front – quite the contrary. The leadership style of Libra is inclusive and co-operative, making Libra an excellent leader.  The challenge for Libra is decision-making!  They are so good at seeing all sides of the question that reaching a final decision can be agony for them, especially when they’re trying to keep everyone happy.  Because they hate disharmony, people-pleasing is often one of their main issues, not helped by their reluctance to confront and tackle any problem areas.  Embracing more of the assertiveness of their opposite sign Aries can be really helpful.

If your birthday is close to this New Moon, this marks the beginning of a significant new cycle in your life in terms of your identity and your sense of purpose.

If you have a planet at 5 degrees of Libra (within a degree either side), this marks the beginning of a new cycle in whatever that planet symbolises (eg responsibility for Saturn).

Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 4.26am Queensland time (AEST) at 5 degrees Libra.  If you’re in Europe or the Americas, the New Moon will fall on Sat 28 Sept.

MEGA VIRGO Supermoon New Moon!!!!

MEGA VIRGO Supermoon New Moon!!!!

& the Libra Equinox

Time to declutter, go on that cleanse

& bring balance into your life!!!

 

We’re about to have a MEGA VIRGO Supermoon New Moon this Friday, with ALL the personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars) all in Virgo!!! 💫💫💫

Once Mercury goes into Virgo on Thurs 29 Aug at 5.48pm Qld time, we have all the personal planets apart from the Moon (ie Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars) all in Virgo.  The Moon joins them on Fri 30 Aug at 9.57am as she too moves into Virgo, in the very last hours of the old lunar month before she joins with the Sun at 8.37pm that same night to form this month’s New Moon in Virgo … a MEGA VIRGO New Moon with ALL the personal planets in Virgo!!!  And as if that weren’t enough, it’s also a SUPERMOON New Moon!!!  Which makes the energies stronger than usual.  Watch out for the tides at this New Moon!  And for unusually strong urges to spring clean, tidy the house, go on that cleanse …. you get the idea!!! 💫💫💫

If you’re currently facing challenges in your life, an astrology session with me will give you clarity and insight into how to transform the energies around you now and journey through the next twelve months. And if you feel you’d benefit from ongoing support and guidance, I invite you to consider my exclusive Life Mastery – Astro*Coaching programme, where I work one-on-one with you on a regular basis to guide you through the upcoming energies.  Contact me for more details or click on the links here.

This MEGA VIRGO New Moon on Fri 30 Aug is the second of three New Moon SuperMoons in a row.  A SuperMoon is when the Moon comes closer in her orbit round the Earth (which occurs every month) but when this closeness coincides with either a New or Full Moon (in this case a New Moon), her effects are felt much more strongly.  Because this New Moon in Vigo is the closest of these three SuperMoons, the effects of this New Moon are enhanced and magnified. The tides are likely to be much higher than usual on this New Moon. 

The Mega Virgo New Moon is likely to bring changes to the way we approach our everyday life.  This is an excellent time to start a new health regime, and to bring a new sense of order into your life.  If you’re thinking of going on a cleanse, or de-cluttering your house, this New Moon provides perfect timing, and may even demand it of you!!  If you’re feeling an unusually strong urge to spring-clean and tidy up the place, you won’t be alone!  There are SO MANY planets in Virgo at the moment it’s not funny!!!!!  Virgo loves order more than anything, a place for everything and everything in its place. 

Virgo is an Earth sign, cautious and practical, taking its time to create order (which it loves), and often has a tendency towards perfectionism.  The challenge for Virgo is not getting lost in the detail (which it is so good at) and as a result, losing sight of the overall vision, the classic “can’t see the wood (ie forest) for the trees”.

If your birthday is close to this New Moon, this marks the beginning of a new cycle in your life in terms of your identity and your sense of purpose.  

Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 8.37pm Queensland time (AEST) at 6 degrees Virgo.

The Full Moon falls in Pisces on Sat 14 Sept 2019 at 21 degrees Pisces.  This is a dreamy, romantic time which can bring a yearning for oneness and spiritual fulfillment.  It can also be a wonderful time for creative projects to come to fruition. Just make sure you’re seeing things clearly and not as you’d wish to see them, through rose-coloured glasses!  Pisces is very good at self-deception, and not so good on boundaries.  Be careful of any Piscean tendencies to rescue other people – as opposed to empowering them.  As the Confucian saying goes, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him to fish and you feed him for life”.  The Full Moon in Pisces urges us to find a balance between seeing the big picture and staying in touch with the details that ground the vision.  The Full Moon is exact at 2.33pm AEST, so the best night for Full Moon celebrations will be the previous evening while the energies are still building.

The lovers Venus and Mars have been celebrating their somewhat rare union in Virgo on Sat 24 Aug, and they continue together in this sign for the next few weeks.  For now, the lovers are in synch in a quiet and introspective way, tuned in to one another at a deep level and very much on the same page. After their reunion, Venus moves ahead of Mars and goes into Libra on Sat 14 Sept.  Libra is very much at home in Libra as it’s one of the signs she rules, characterized by a sense of refined beauty and aesthetic harmony.  She’s now feeling much more social than Mars, who stays in Virgo this whole lunar month, so there may be some friction between them after 14 Sept.

Saturn grinds to a halt on Wed 18 Sept following its recent retrograde period, ready to go direct again at 13 degrees Capricorn.  If your birthday is close to 4 Jan or this degree is significant in your chart, you will have been feeling the heavy energy of Saturn sitting on this point for the previous 3 weeks, with a further three weeks to look forward to (!).  The energy of Saturn asks us to re-evaluate the area of life it is currently contacting, to take full responsibility for ourselves and our actions, and to cut away any dead wood – which ultimately stimulates new growth.  It is also very good at demanding that we do a reality check.  The forward motion of Saturn enables us to test and put into practice over the next seven months whatever we have learned about social responsibility, self-discipline and material reality during its recent retrograde phase over the last four and a half months.

Meanwhile Pluto is pretty much stationary for the second half of Sept as it gears up to go direct at the beginning of October, so you may well be feeling the build-up of intensity, especially if you have chart points around 20 Capricorn.  More about this in next month’s newsletter!

The Equinox falls on Mon 23 Sept 2019 at 5.50pm AEST.  The theme of the Equinox is always about balance.  This is the time of year when day and night are of equal length (equi-nox means ‘equal night’ in Latin), the Sun rises due east, and the seasons come to a point of balance. This Equinox is marked by the Sun moving into the zodiac sign of Libra, the sign associated with harmony, balance and fairness.  In the Southern hemisphere this is the Spring Equinox, a time of rejoicing that winter is over and celebrating the birth of new life. With the Mega Virgo New Moon, this is an excellent time for a Spring Cleanse!  The seasons are reversed in the Northern hemisphere of course, where this is the Autumn Equinox, a time of harvest celebration, giving thanks for the abundant crops produced by the summer months.  Whether you are celebrating Spring or Autumn Equinox, this is a perfect time to reflect on your own life, explore what might be out of balance there and find a way to restore that, whether it’s in your relationships, your work or any other aspect of your life.  

Looking ahead to next lunar month …

The next New Moon falls in Libra on Sun 29 Sept 2019 at 4.26am AEST (28 Sept in Europe and the Americas) at 5 Libra.

 

With love

Chirone

New Moon in Leo 2019

New MoonNew Moon Supermoon, watch the tides!

Mercury direct on this Leo New Moon

 

New Moon in Leo   Thurs 1 Aug 2019, exact at 1.12pm Queensland time (AEST) at 8 degrees Leo

Full Moon in Aquarius   Thurs 15 Aug 2019, exact at 10.29pm Queensland time (AEST) at 22 degrees Aquarius

Skywatching   Jupiter can be seen overhead in the evening, followed a few hours later by Saturn. 

 

Most of us will feel a definite shift in the energy with this New Moon in Leo, finally moving out of the intensity of the eclipse season of the past six weeks.  Some people are still doing it tough though – if you have planets between 15-22 degrees of Capricorn, you’ll really be feeling the effects of transiting Pluto, South Node and Saturn …. (this also applies to these degrees of the other cardinal signs: Cancer, Libra and Aries). The Universe is really challenging you to clean up your act, transform certain aspects of your life, step into your power and accept full responsibility for your life – it’s an absolutely huge time for you!

If you’re currently facing challenges in your life, an astrology session with me will give you clarity and insight into how to transform the energies around you now and journey through the next twelve months. And if you feel you’d benefit from ongoing support and guidance, I invite you to consider my exclusive Life Mastery – Astro*Coaching programme, where I work one-on-one with you on a regular basis to guide you through the upcoming energies.  Contact me for more details or click on the links here.

 

The New Moon in Leo brings a renewed sense of fun and enthusiasm for life. This is a perfect time to re-energize and revitalize.  Leo is ruled by the Sun and this sign has all the life-giving qualities of the Sun, inspiring others with its warmth, energy and passion.  Warm-hearted and generous, Leo is the royalty of the zodiac, confident and regal with a flair for the dramatic, so don’t be surprised to find a Leo centre-stage.  Fire signs need to have plenty of fun, and Leos love this to be in lavish grand style. This New Moon represents the opportunity to begin a new cycle in your enthusiasm for life and your creativity – whatever inspires you and ignites your passion.

Over the next 3 months we have three New Moon SuperMoons in a row.  A SuperMoon is when the Moon comes closer in her orbit round the Earth (which occurs every month) and this closeness coincides with either a New or Full Moon.  Because of the extra-closeness of the Moon at this time, her effects are felt much more strongly. Tides are likely to be much higher than usual at this time.

Because this New Moon in Leo is also a SuperMoon, the effects of this New Moon are enhanced and magnified.

If your birthday falls close to the date of this New Moon, this marks an important year of new beginnings in your life, particularly with regard to your identity, your sense of self and your purpose in life.

The New Moon falls at 8 degrees of Leo. If you have planets close to this point (within one degree) this marks the beginning of a new cycle in whatever that planet represents, for example relationships for Venus.

Remember to set your intentions for this lunar month within 24 hours of the New Moon.  The New Moon is exact at 1.12pm AEST.

After three weeks of its usual communication challenges, delays and frustrations, Mercury goes direct on the day of the New Moon after its recent retrograde period, stationing at 23 degrees Cancer.  We can all breathe a sigh of relief now as the frustrations of the last three weeks ease and communications become a lot smoother again. In the days leading up to Mercury going direct, continue to double-check appointments and flight times, that you have your keys with you, and that messages get through OK.  Remember that confusion and misunderstandings occur much more easily at this time. Try to delay any major purchases or contract-signing till at least a week after Mercury’s gone direct again.

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn 2019

partial lunar eclipseThe Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn on Wed 17 July is a partial lunar eclipse (16 July in Europe and the Americas).  It lasts almost 3 hours and you’ll be able to see it if it’s night-time for you at the time of the eclipse – here in Queensland it’s at 7.31am so we won’t catch it. 

The eclipsed Full Moon in Capricorn brings into sharp relief the difference between public and private life, and invites us to find a balance between these two opposing polarities of work and home. If there is something you have been working towards for a while, this Full Moon is likely to bring things to fruition with a strong sense of achievement.  

The eclipsed Full Moon is exact at 7.31am AEST at 24 degrees Capricorn – the best night for Full Moon ceremony will be the previous evening.

Remember my usual warning around eclipses and take extra care during this eclipse time!

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer 2019

eclipseTotal Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer  Wed 3 July 2019, exact at 5.22am Queensland time (AEST) at 10 degrees Cancer (2 July in Europe and the Americas)

Partial Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn  Wed 17 July 2019, exact at 7.31am Queensland time (AEST) at 24 degrees Capricorn (16 July in Europe and the Americas)

Skywatching  Jupiter rises in the east just before sunset, followed a few hours later by Saturn.  Mercury and Mars are visible in the west in the very early evening, low in the sky – you’ll need an uninterrupted view of the western horizon to see them.

 

The energies are really intense right now with the lead-up to the eclipses.  I’ve had a lot of clients contacting me wondering what on earth is going on for them.  If these eclipses contact your chart, believe me, you’ll know all about it!  That plus the very heavy recent energy of Saturn-Pluto on the Capricorn South Node opposite Mars in Cancer, signifying the frustrations and power struggles that many of us have been picking up on recently – and in all honesty won’t really be over till after the lunar eclipse.

All this in the shadow of the upcoming Mercury retro – you may have noticed the usual glitches starting to creep in – I even thought my computer had died the other night!  Thankfully that turned out to be a false alarm, but you can imagine the major freak-out before I realized that all was in fact OK.  Adding to the horror of the computer (apparently) dying was the thought that I certainly didn’t want to replace it during Mercury retro – and that of course would mean I’d have to wait another 3 weeks till I could get a new one! 🙂 

If you’re currently facing challenges in your life, an astrology session with me will give you clarity and insight into how to journey through the next twelve months and transform the energies around you. And if you feel you’d benefit from ongoing support and guidance, I invite you to consider my exclusive Life Mastery – Astro*Coaching programme, where I work one-on-one with you on a regular basis to guide you through the upcoming energies.  Contact me for more details or click on the links here.

 

The eclipses are here again!  The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on Wed 3 July is a total solar eclipse, visible in the South Pacific, Chile and Argentina.  The totality of this solar eclipse will last for over 4 mins, really intensifying the sense of endings and new beginnings that always accompany a New Moon.  The new cycles starting now are likely to be especially significant because of the added intensity of this total solar eclipse.

Falling in Cancer, this eclipsed New Moon represents the opportunity for a significant new cycle in our relationship to the Feminine.  Cancer is ruled by the Moon, symbolising women, mothering and the Sacred Feminine. This is an opportunity to begin a new cycle in the way we care for others, the way we nurture ourselves and our relationship with women in general.

Cancer is a water sign, sensitive and emotional, with a strong need for emotional security. This is the sign associated with home and family, so this eclipsed New Moon can mark an important shift in our sense of belonging, maybe a new phase in our home and family life, or our sense of belonging to a ‘tribe’.

Cancer has a tenacious connection to the past – Cancerians have strong emotional attachments and don’t like to let go of anything!  The eclipsed New Moon in Cancer signifies it’s time for a significant break with the past, an opportunity to emotionally release whatever no longer serves us.  This is a great time for Forgiveness ceremonies, releasing you from the energetic attachments to your past.  Thyme essential oil and the Australian Bush Flower Essence Bottlebrush are particularly good remedies for supporting you to let go – contact me if you need to order.

If your birthday falls close to the date of this eclipsed New Moon, this marks a year of highly significant new beginnings in your life, particularly with regard to your identity, your sense of self and your purpose in life.

If you have planets close to 10 degrees Cancer (within a degree either side), this represents the beginning of significant new cycle in whatever that planet symbolizes (eg relationships for Venus).

Remember to set your intentions for this lunar month within 24 hours of the New Moon.  The New Moon is exact at 5.22am Queensland time (AEST) (so the previous day in Europe and the Americas).

Full Moon in Sagittarius 2019

The Full Moon falls in Sagittarius on Mon 17 June. 
Sagittarius is eternally buoyant and optimistic, driven by the need to find meaning in life, if not THE meaning of life.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius invites us to find a balance between this enthusiastic search for truth and the need to approach an issue rationally, collecting information first rather than acting impulsively. Sagittarius is famous for leaping into situations, all fired up, ready to fight for a cause or go on a quest, without stopping to check the facts first – and then in its enthusiasm and thirst for adventure, it doesn’t know when (or sometimes even how) to stop and rein in the energy – it’s what gives Sagittarius its OTT reputation, ie being completely Over The Top! So use the energies of this Full Moon to find that balance in your life.

With Jupiter (the ruler of Sagittarius) in a challenging contact with Neptune, there’s potential for deception at this Full Moon (especially self-deception), although the helpful contact from Saturn may well keep a reality check in place.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius also brings issues of trust to the fore, so just be careful you’re not viewing the world through the rose-coloured glasses of Neptune!

The Full Moon is at 25 degrees Sagittarius and is exact at 6.31pm AEST (Queensland time).

New Moon in Taurus 2019

Taurus the bull

New Moon in Taurus  Sun 5 May 2019, exact at 8.45am Queensland time (AEST) at 14 degrees Taurus (Sat 4 May in Europe and the Americas)

Full Moon in Scorpio  Sun 19 May 2019, exact at 7.11am Queensland time (AEST) at 27 degrees Scorpio (Sat 18 May in Europe and the Americas)

Skywatching  Venus and Mercury can still be seen as Morning Stars in the east before sunrise at the beginning of this lunar month, Mercury only for a few days more before it disappears from view. Saturn is overhead in the pre-dawn sky, with Jupiter visible in the west.  In the evening, after sunset, the red planet Mars can be seen low in the western sky for a few hours before it too sets.  Jupiter then rises in the east in the early evening.

 

Cosmic invitation for guardians of Mother Earth

Secrets revealed at Scorpio Full Moon?

We’re certainly moving through some very heavy energies at the moment with Saturn and Pluto stationing so close to the South Node! (see last month’s newsletter for details.)  Anyone whose birthday’s around 11-14 Jan will be feeling these energies hugely! 

Astrologically we have a relatively quiet month coming up, thankfully.  Time for a breather …  before we move into the next eclipse season towards the end of June – the eclipses aren’t till July, but we’ll start to feel the effects a couple of weeks beforehand.  Enjoy the rest and use the opportunity to recharge your batteries – the New Moon in Taurus is an excellent time for some pampering!

I’m now offering my Life Mastery – Astro*Coaching programme for any of you who’d like a highly personalised journey of transformation, where you’re regularly supported and guided by how your birth chart’s being affected each month by the current astrological energies.  It makes such a difference to have this Astro*Wisdom working for you!!!  I can only take a few Life Mastery – Astro*Coaching clients at a time, so contact me asap if you’re interested and to secure your spot!  Click on the links above for more info.

The New Moon in Taurus on Sun 5 May (4 May in Europe and the Americas) invites us to renew our relationship with Mother Earth and our physical world.  It invites us to begin a new cycle, to connect deeply with the land, to appreciate the abundance of Nature, to acknowledge the sacred beauty of the Earth and to embody this by stepping into our protective role as her guardians.

This protective role seems more urgent than ever with the environmental breakdown we’re experiencing, caused mainly by the climate crisis but also by our own lack of awareness over the years around pollution issues such as the use of plastics.  With Uranus now in Taurus, there’s a mass awakening happening about how we are destroying the Earth’s pristine environment on every front.  For more on what Uranus in Taurus is bringing, see my blog post below.

Uranus moves into Taurus – Shifts in mass consciousness

 

At a personal level, this New Moon (and this whole lunar month) is an excellent time for some pampering and indulgence!  As an Earth sign, Taurus is patient and grounded, with an appreciation of the finer things in life. Taurus is highly sensuous and has a love of luxury, so feel free to indulge your senses now!

Taurus is associated with security in its many forms – emotional, material and financial – and this need for security (or more accurately, the fear of lack of security) can give rise to the sign’s tendency towards possessiveness and material accumulation.  Use the energies of this lunar month to explore your own security needs and your own relationship with abundance.

If your birthday falls close to this New Moon, within a day either side, you are likely to be strongly affected as it marks a year of new beginnings in your life, particularly with regard to your sense of identity and your purpose in life.

The New Moon falls at 14 degrees Taurus.  If you have points in your birth chart close to this degree (within one degree), expect the part of your life associated with that energy (eg relationships for Venus) to begin a significant new cycle.

The New Moon is exact at 8.45am AEST.  Remember to set your New Moon intentions in the following 24 hrs.

The lovers are in harmony right now, starting the lunar month in outgoing style with Venus in action-oriented Aries and Mars in inquisitive Gemini, Fire and Air fuelling each other.  They keep pace for a few weeks then move into more receptive energy mid-month, when Venus moves into sensuous Taurus on 15 May, and Mars into emotional Cancer on 16 May.  Once more the lovers are in harmony, this time in Earth and Water, so in a quieter, more introspective way.

The Full Moon falls in Scorpio on Sun 19 May AEST (18 May in Europe and the Americas).  This is likely to be a very emotional time when deep and passionate feelings are revealed. This Scorpio Full Moon brings a strong possibility of secret or intensely private matters coming to light, possibly with a sexual content or maybe concerning financial matters (or even both!). There may also be some shocks or surprises on the relationship front with Venus making a tight contact to Uranus at this Full Moon.  The Full Moon is at 27 degrees Scorpio and is exact at 7.11am AEST, so the best time for Full Moon celebrations will be the previous evening Sat 18 May.

 

Looking ahead to next lunar month … 

The next New Moon falls on Mon 3 June 2019 at 8.01pm AEST at 12 degrees Gemini

  

Have a wonderful lunar month

 

With love
