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

Chirone

New Moon in Aries 2019

1Aries

New Moon in Aries: Fri 5 April 2019, exact at 6.50pm Queensland time (AEST) at 15 degrees Aries

 Second Full Moon in Libra (Blue Moon): Fri 19 April 2019, exact at 9.12pm Queensland time (AEST) at 29 degrees Libra 

Skywatching: Venus and Mercury can be seen as Morning Stars in the east before sunrise.  Saturn and Jupiter are almost overhead in the pre-dawn sky. In the evening, after sunset, the red planet Mars can be seen in the western sky.

*

As we go into this New Moon, Pluto is exactly on the Moon’s South Node in Capricorn.  It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out, but it seems to me that an obvious reading would be the destruction (and ultimate transformation) of the profit-at-any-cost empire building that is so prevalent within multinational corporations. This Plutonian energy combined with the revolutionary energies of Uranus in Taurus, waking people up at a mass level to the impact we’re having on the environment, could be a key turning point in our approach to living sustainably on this beautiful planet of ours. 

 * 

The New Moon in Aries on Fri 5 April brings the opportunity for a bold and exciting new start.  Aries’ natural approach to life is to take action, breaking new ground in a pioneering or even crusading venture, or taking up a cause that’s worth fighting for. 

 As a Fire sign, Aries is full of enthusiasm and focused on the future.  Aries tends to act first and think later, hence its reputation for being impulsive, so take a moment to weigh your options before jumping in feet first!

If your birthday falls close to this date (within a day either side), this is the beginning of a significant new cycle in your life, particularly with regard to your sense of identity and purpose in life.

Wherever you have 15 degrees Aries in your chart is the area of your life that will be affected by this New Moon – for example, if it falls in your 10th house, this signifies the beginning of a new cycle in your career or professional life. 

The New Moon is exact at 6.50pm AEST.  Remember to set your New Moon resolutions in the following 24 hrs.

Double-whammy New Moon in Pisces!

12Pisces glassNew Moon in Pisces  Thurs 7 March 2019, exact at 2.04am Queensland time (AEST) at 15 degrees Pisces (the previous day in Europe and the Americas)

Full Moon in Libra (Supermoon)  Thurs 21 March 2019, exact at 11.43am Queensland time (AEST) at 0 degrees Libra

Skywatching  Venus can be seen as a Morning Star in the east before sunrise, and even Mercury can be seen lower in the sky if you have a clear view of the eastern horizon. Saturn and Jupiter are almost overhead in the pre-dawn sky.  In the evening after sunset, the red planet Mars can be seen in the western sky.

 

Double-whammy New Moon in Pisces

Full Moon on the Equinox

… and Mercury’s retro …

 

Just a reminder that Mercury’s retro by the time of this New Moon!!!  Make sure your computers are backed up!  Two significant astrological events unfold THE DAY BEFORE this next New Moon: Mercury goes retrograde and Uranus moves into Taurus for the next 7 years, both on 6 March.  There’s plenty of info in last month’s newsletter and on my Facebook page on these …. I just want to bring them back to the forefront of your awareness!!! 🙂   

 

The New Moon falls in Pisces in the early hours of Thurs 7 March 2019 (the previous day in Europe and the Americas).  Neptune the modern ruler of Pisces is strongly configured with this New Moon, giving it a super-boost double whammy of Neptunian-Piscean energy.

In its positive manifestation, this New Moon signifies a renewed focus on spirituality and the desire to transcend our 3D reality. Pisces has a strong sense of divine homesickness, a longing to return to source and merge into oneness.  This New Moon is a great time to begin a new cycle of meditation and spiritual practices!

It’s also a wonderful time to begin a new cycle of creative pursuits, such as art, photography or music, essentially anything creative that takes you into that right-brain space of timelessness, a highly Neptunian experience!

When manifesting negatively however, Pisces (and its ruler Neptune) can bring illusion and deception, making us more gullible than usual, more prone to being deceived (and deceiving ourselves too!).  Be careful of falling under some kind of spell under the influence of this New Moon!!!  The Piscean urge to transcend reality can express negatively as escapism, any kind of escapism – which in its more extreme form can easily develop into addictive patterns of behaviour.

The New Moon in Pisces may also usher in a new cycle of compassion and the desire to help others. Just be careful that this doesn’t become an urge to rescue people, as you’ll disempower them in the process.  Pisces has a tendency towards self-sacrifice in the service of others, even to the point of martyrdom, so make sure you look after yourself first, otherwise you’ll be in no position to take care of others.  There’s a fine line between helping others and rescuing them, overstepping boundaries which essentially need to be respected and strengthened.  One of the best ways to empower people is to give them the space to make their own decisions, providing the invitation for them to step into that place of self-responsibility and empowerment.

Wherever you have 15 degrees of Pisces in your chart is the area of your life that will be affected by this New Moon – for example, if it falls in your 10th house, this signifies the beginning of a new cycle in your career or professional life.

If your birthday falls close to this date (within a day either side), this is the beginning of an important new cycle for you, especially with regard to your sense of identity and your purpose in life.

The New Moon is exact at 2.04am Queensland time (AEST).  Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.

Eclipsed New Moon in Capricorn – powerful New Year’s resolutions!!!

CapricornPartial Solar Eclipse / New Moon in Capricorn: Sun 6 Jan 2019, exact at 11.28am (eclipse at 11.41am) Queensland time (AEST) at 15 degrees Capricorn

Total Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon in Leo: Mon 21 Jan 2019, exact at 3.16pm (eclipse at 3.12pm) Queensland time (AEST) at  0 degrees Leo

Skywatching: Venus and Jupiter can be seen as Morning Stars in the east before sunrise, moving closer together as the month progresses till they’re closest on the mornings of 22 & 23 Jan.  In the evening, after sunset, the red planet Mars can be seen in the western sky.

*

I hope everyone’s enjoyed a wonderful festive season!!!  You’ll know from my last newsletter that we’re in eclipse season now, with both the New Moon and Full Moon this month being eclipsed.  This means the energies are extra intense right now, and unexpected changes are typical.  Please be extra mindful at this time and take extra care in this eclipse season!

You’ve got a second chance at your New Year’s resolutions at this New Moon, with the full support of the Cosmos!!!  I always say that the best time to make your New Year’s resolutions is the New Moon in Capricorn, because it brings a sense of discipline to the new cycle that we’re about to start – in this case 2019!  This year the New Moon in Capricorn is also a solar eclipse, making the intentions you set now much more powerful than they would normally be.  This makes this year’s new Moon in Capricorn an excellent time to set your intentions for the year ahead!!

*

The New Moon in Capricorn on Sun 6 Jan is the absolute best time to make your New Year’s resolutions for 2019 as the energy of this eclipsed New Moon gives a very powerful boost to any intentions and resolutions you set now – so here’s a second chance at those New Year’s resolutions!

A New Moon always represents the beginning of a new cycle in some part of your life.  The Capricorn New Moon invites renewed focus on self-discipline, responsibility, dealing with material reality, setting goals, improving time management and introducing more structure into your life – all in the service of moving forwards on your chosen path.  Remember the image of Capricorn the goat, moving slowly but steadily up the mountain, one step at a time, guaranteed to reach the summit.

Wherever you have Capricorn in your chart is the area of life that will be most strongly affected by this New Moon – for example, if it is in your 6th house, this is an opportunity to bring more self-discipline into your daily routine and health regime; if it falls in the 2nd, this applies to your finances.  If you are not sure where Capricorn falls in your birth chart, think of the area of your life that could most benefit from some self-discipline right now – you will probably tune into it intuitively!

If your birthday falls close to this New Moon, this is the beginning of a highly significant new cycle in your life, especially in terms of your sense of identity and purpose in the world.  If 15 degrees Capricorn is strong in your chart, or if any of your planets fall at this degree, this indicates the beginning of a significant new cycle in the part of your life represented by that planet, eg relationships for Venus.

Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.  The New Moon is exact at 11.28am AEST, and the partial Solar Eclipse is exact at 11.41am.  If you’re planning a New Moon ceremony, work with both timings when setting your New Moon intentions: for maximum effect, begin your ceremony just before 11.28am (AEST) and make sure it extends over the exact eclipse timing at 11.41am.  The eclipse makes your intentions much more powerful than they would normally be.

Adventure Time!

Sagittarius, the archer

New Moon in Sagittarius  Fri 7 Dec 2018, exact at 5.20pm Queensland time (AEST) at 15 degrees Sagittarius

Full Moon in Cancer  Sun 23 Dec 2018, exact at 3.49am Queensland time (AEST) at 0 degrees Cancer

Skywatching  Venus can be seen as the Morning Star twinkling brightly in the east before sunrise, and lower in the sky, Mercury and Jupiter are also visible.  In the evening, after sunset, reddish Mars is overhead, with Saturn bright in the west, progressively lower in the sky as the month advances until it is no longer visible.

 

Adventure Time!

The New Moon falls in Sagittarius on Fri 7 Dec, bringing a fresh burst of enthusiasm for adventure and exploration, as well as the need to enjoy life to the full.  This is a good time to start on a spiritual quest, a study course or overseas travel – anything that expands your horizons.

Sagittarius is a Fire sign, warm and enthusiastic, naturally optimistic with an undying trust in the Universe.  Sagittarians love to explore and go on adventures.  Their sign is ruled by Jupiter, which gives them their boundless enthusiasm – and on the down side, a tendency to go over the top, take lots of risks and over-extend themselves, not knowing when or where to stop.

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 15 degrees of Sagittarius this marks the beginning of a new cycle in whatever that planet symbolizes (eg relationships for Venus).

Remember to create your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.  The New Moon is exact at 5.20pm AEST.

New Moon in Libra 2018

Libra, the scales of balance

New Moon in Libra  Tues 9 Oct 2018, exact at 1.47pm Queensland time (AEST) at 15 degrees Libra

Full Moon in Taurus  Thurs 25 Oct 2018, exact at 2.45am Queensland time (AEST) at 1 degree Taurus (effectively the evening of Wed 24 Oct)

Skywatching:   Venus will continue to be visible as the Evening Star, twinkling brightly in the west, till about mid-Oct, appearing gradually lower in the evening sky until she is no longer visible.  She disappears for 7 days and then reappears as the Morning Star from the end of Oct.  Jupiter is above Venus in the west, with Saturn and reddish Mars overhead at sunset.

 

The New Moon falls in Libra on Tues 9 Oct, starting a new cycle in your relationships and connecting with others generally.  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 consultative 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 15 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 1.47pm Queensland time (AEST).

Second solar eclipse this season

Leo, the lion

Second solar eclipse – take extra care!

Re-energize and revitalize!

We’re not out of the woods yet, we’re still in the eclipse season. There are still huge energies around as this next New Moon is the second solar eclipse in this eclipse season. Then on top of that, Uranus is stationary (about to go retro) in the lead-up to this eclipsed New Moon, adding the extra potential for unexpected events in your life!

It’s definitely a time to be extra careful, especially as far as accidents are concerned – so take extra care day-to-day (eg when driving), and don’t take any risks!  Stay present and grounded!

 

In this unusual extended eclipse season we have two solar eclipses.  The New Moon in Leo on Sat 11 Aug is the second of these solar eclipses. It’s a partial solar eclipse, as was the solar eclipse New Moon of 13 July. This means that the New Moon energy of starting a new cycle is intensified by the eclipses, and any intentions you set now will be especially powerful.

The eclipsed New Moon in Leo brings the opportunity to begin a significant new cycle in your enthusiasm for life and your creativity – whatever inspires you and ignites your passion!  This is a perfect time to re-energize and revitalize, and to have more fun in your life.  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 Leo centre-stage.  Fire signs need to have plenty of fun, and Leos love this to be in grand lavish style.  The downside of Leo is that they can be very self-centred, it’s all about them.

partial solar eclipse

If your birthday is close to the date of this eclipsed New Moon, your year ahead is likely to see really important changes in your life, significant new beginnings particularly with regard to your identity, your sense of self and your purpose in life.

The New Moon is exact at 7.57pm AEST (partial solar eclipse at 7.46pm AEST) at 18 degrees Leo.  Wherever this eclipsed New Moon falls in your chart is the area of life where you can expect a significant new cycle to start.  Remember to set your intentions for this lunar month within 24 hours of the eclipsed New Moon.  The eclipse gives extra power to these New Moon resolutions.

Take extra care during the eclipse season (which lasts till two weeks after this second solar eclipse) and don’t take any risks!

Eclipse season – take extra care! Longest ‘Blood Moon’ this century!!!

partial solar eclipse

Can you feel the intensity of the energies right now??!!!

We’re at the start of the eclipse season, and it’s particularly intense because this is an extended eclipse season.  Instead of the usual two eclipses – one solar, one lunar, we’ve got three:  TWO solar and one lunar, and the lunar eclipse just happens to be the longest total lunar eclipse anyone will experience this century!!!

Eclipses bring unexpected changes into people’s lives, so take extra care at this time, especially when driving for example.  Don’t take any risks.

*

Here’s the information on the eclipses for the next lunar month:

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on Fri 13 July represents the opportunity for a significant new cycle to begin in relation to the feminine. Cancer is ruled by the Moon, symbolising women, mothering and the sacred feminine. This eclipsed New Moon represents the beginning of a significant 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 New Moon can also mark the beginning of a new sense of belonging, perhaps 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 represents the beginning of a significant new phase in our relationship with the past, an opportunity to emotionally release whatever no longer serves us. 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.

Your New Moon intentions will be especially powerful this month because of the solar eclipse.  Remember to set your intentions for this lunar month within 24 hours of the New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 12.47pm Queensland time (AEST).

Blood Moon, total lunar eclipse

The Total Lunar Eclipse “Blood Moon” on Sat 28 July is the longest total lunar eclipse this century! The total phase of the lunar eclipse will last almost an hour and three-quarters, and the whole eclipse will unfold over nearly 4 hours. It’ll be visible in Australia – if you’re prepared to get up really early, well before dawn!

Lunar eclipse starts at 3.14am Queensland time AEST,

  • partial eclipse starts at 4.24am,
  • full total eclipse (Blood Moon) starts 5.30am,
  • max eclipse is at 6.21am,
  • eclipse ends at 6.35am in Queensland because the Moon sets (it’ll keep going for longer further west).
  • There’s a great graphic/video and info at https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/australia/brisbane

The Total Lunar Eclipse is the Full Moon in Aquarius on Sat 28 July 2018 (Fri 27 July in Europe and the Americas) which highlights the importance of establishing a balance between the needs of the collective and the needs of the individual. It may bring new and experimental ideas into sharp focus. Full Moons often bring situations to a head, and the eclipse intensifies this energy, so be prepared for humanitarian issues (such as refugees) to reach some kind of crisis point, where resolution becomes imperative. Total lunar eclipses are also often associated with earth changes such as earthquakes and volcanos, so expect to see more of these in the news at this time. The eclipsed Full Moon falls at 4 degrees of Aquarius and is exact at 6.20am AEST, so the best time for ceremony and celebrations is the previous night, Fri 27 July.
