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

How do you limit yourself?

How do you limit yourself???

Saturn turns retrograde on Wed 18 April at 9 degrees Capricorn. Saturn retrograde encourages us to review the recent past and assess our ability to take full responsibility for our actions.  It also urges us to re-examine the way we have structured our lives.  This is a good time to look at the ways we limit ourselves, and bring our fears to the conscious light of day.  This is also a good time to review our ability to say ’No’ and ensure that we can maintain healthy boundaries in all areas of our lives.  This Saturn retrograde period lasts until Thurs 6 Sept 2018.

If your birthday falls around 30 December, this is likely to be a time of increased responsibility for you, especially for a month either side of 18 April, as you enter a new phase of maturity and step into a place of personal authority.  Your workload may well increase at this time – if you accept this extra responsibility, this can be a time of success and achievement.  Saturn is a planet where we truly reap what we sow – if you’ve put in the hard work, this is very likely to be a time of achievement.  However, if you’ve cut corners along the way, this is a time when you’re likely to come unstuck and this can lead to feelings of failure and depression. Accept the lessons of Saturn and learn to take full responsibility for yourself and your life.

New Moon in Virgo 2017

Time to declutter, go on that cleanse

& bring balance into your life!!!

Adventure time for Scorpios

I’m over in England at the moment, so if you’re in Europe or the UK and would like a reading, it’s easier to negotiate time zones right now!  I’m still seeing clients from Australia – using Skype makes it really easy no matter where you are in the world.  If you’d like a consultation with me, simply book here.

The New Moon in Virgo on Wed 20 Sept is likely to bring changes to the way we approach our everyday life.  This is an excellent time to start a new health regime, or 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.  Virgo loves order and 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 “not being able to see the wood (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 put out your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 3.30pm Queensland time (AEST) at 27 degrees Virgo.

New Moon in Gemini 2017

3Gemini

“Fake news” – sign of the times

Solstice celebrations!

 

New Moon in Gemini  Fri 26 May 2017, exact at 5.44am Queensland time (AEST) at 4 degrees of Gemini  (Thurs 25 May in Europe and the Americas)

Full Moon in Sagittarius  Fri 9 June 2017, exact at 11.10pm Queensland time (AEST) at 18 degrees of Sagittarius

Skywatching   Jupiter is visible as an evening star rising in the east, while Saturn rises later in the evening. For early risers, Venus can be seen as the twinkling Morning Star in the pre-dawn sky, now joined by Mercury, lower in the eastern sky.

 

The focus this month is on communications (New Moon in Gemini) and the balance between our belief systems and the objective facts (Full Moon in Sagittarius) – definitely an area where “fake news” comes into play.   We also take a quick look at how Donald Trump’s chart is being impacted by the upcoming astrological alignments.

The New Moon falls in Gemini in the early morning of Fri 26 May (AEST, Thurs 25 May in Europe and the Americas), signalling the beginning of a new cycle in the way we communicate, network and exchange ideas.

As an Air sign, Gemini is naturally objective and rational, so has a real talent for dealing with information.  Gemini has a combination of sociability and extreme curiosity – the answer to one question simply creates more questions!  Through its association with the media, this can be an ideal sign for investigative journalism, although a touch of Pluto/Scorpio would help with the depth of research often required.  Gemini is also associated with education – the natural curiosity of this sign often makes learning effortless.  A New Moon in the sign of Gemini can usher in a new cycle in any of these areas.

If your birthday falls close to this New Moon, within a day either side, this marks a year of significant new beginnings in your life, particularly with regard to your identity and your sense of purpose in life.

The New Moon falls at 4 degrees Gemini.  If you have points in your birth chart close to this degree (within one degree) you can expect to begin a new cycle connected with that energy (eg relationships for Venus).

The New Moon is exact at 5.44am AEST.  Remember to set your New Moon intentions in the following 24 hrs.

Time for action! New Moon in Aries

Venus reappears as the Morning Star

Mercury goes retro

We’re heading into another Mercury retro period so make sure your computers are all backed up and your major purchases and contracts are completed well before then!  See my newsletter for more details …

 

The New Moon in Aries on Tues 28 March brings the opportunity for a bold 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.

This New Moon falls at 7 degrees Aries.  If you have points in your birth chart close to this degree (within one degree) expect the part of your life associated with that planet (eg relationships for Venus) to begin a significant new cycle.

Whichever house this New Moon falls in, is where you can expect a bold new departure to occur (eg in your professional life if it falls in your 10th).

The New Moon is exact at 12.57pm AEST.  Remember to put out your New Moon resolutions in the following 24 hrs.
