Supermoon Full Moon in Aquarius 2022

Our third and final Supermoon of this year, coloured by Saturn and Uranus, echoes the Cracks in the System theme of 2021.  Expect feelings to run high … it is a Supermoon after all!

 

SuperMoonOur third and final Supermoon of this year is the Full Moon in Aquarius on Fri 12 Aug.

As always with a Supermoon, the Full Moon appears larger and brighter in the sky than usual, and has a much stronger-than-usual effect on us, heightening emotional dramas, overstretching emergency workers, and bringing higher tides and extreme weather events.

This Supermoon Full Moon in Aquarius highlights the importance of establishing a balance between the needs of the collective and the needs of the individual, something that’s been very much in the news in connection with the pandemic.  With Saturn and Uranus closely connected to the Full Moon in this chart, there’s the possibility of more restrictions being put in place at this time, with strong opposition to any restrictions too.  It’s an echo of the Cracks in the System‘ theme which characterized 2021.  The Full Moon in Aquarius asks us to find a solution that honours both sets of needs, the collective and the individual, especially as new variants rear their heads.

Full Moons often bring situations to a head, so be prepared for collective issues such as those associated with climate change or the pandemic – or humanitarian issues such as refugees – to reach some kind of crisis point where resolution becomes imperative.

This Aquarian Full Moon could also bring new and experimental ideas into sharp focus, ideas that are likely to benefit the collective.

The Full Moon falls at 19 degrees of Aquarius and is exact at 11.35am Queensland time (AEST).  The best time for celebration and ceremony will be the previous night while the energy is still building.

Jupiter goes retrograde right on the New Moon

Jupiter canstockphotoJupiter goes retrograde right on the New Moon, on Fri 29 July 2022 AEST (the previous day in Europe & the Americas) at 8 degrees Aries.

Jupiter influences social, moral and ethical issues, and when Jupiter is retrograde, we often see legal changes made around matters associated with the sign Jupiter is travelling through.  Remembering that Aries is ruled by Mars the god of war, Jupiter retrograde in Aries is asking us to re-examine the ethics and morality of themes such as war, armaments, violence of any kind (eg family violence, sexual assault), abortion, sexuality, and gender identity especially in competitive sports, to name just a few – all of which are highly topical at the moment.  Jupiter retro is also asking us to reassess the social impact of these issues and our response to them, hopefully resulting in change to any laws that now seem outdated.

In broader terms, the Jupiter retro period is a time when reviews of injustice and other legal matters often take place – one wonders if the Julian Assange extradition will finally be resolved now.

At a personal level, Jupiter retro can be a time when trust issues are likely to surface, coming up for another opportunity for healing and transformation.  You may feel that hope and optimism are harder to come by as you’re seemingly thrown back on your own resources.  Issues of trust can be about trust in yourself, trust in others, or ultimately of course, trust in the Universe.  Just how well do you feel that the Universe has your back? 

Jupiter is also associated with our belief structures (including religion), and you may find yourself questioning your beliefs or dealing with issues of faith over the next four months.  Use this period to re-visit and re-examine the source of your beliefs and see if it all still holds true for you.

Jupiter is retro until 24 November 2022 (the previous day in Europe and the Americas) when it goes direct once more at 28 degrees Pisces.

New Moon in Leo 2022

LeoThe New Moon in Leo on Fri 29 July (AEST, the previous day in Europe and the Americas) 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 radiant 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.

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 5 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 3.55am Queensland time (AEST).

Supermoon Full Moon in Capricorn 2022

SuperMoonThe Full Moon in Capricorn on Thurs 14 July AEST is the second of three consecutive Supermoons this year, appearing larger and brighter in the sky than usual, and having a much stronger effect on us.

A Supermoon occurs when the Full Moon coincides with the Moon’s closest point to the Earth in her monthly orbit, making the Full Moon appear much bigger in the night sky.  The effects we normally associate with the Full Moon are really heightened by the Supermoon, so we’re likely to experience feelings running high, a stronger-than-usual emotional charge and tense situations reaching a climax.  Supermoons are also associated with higher tides than usual, and extreme weather patterns like storms and flooding.  Full Moons tend to bring situations to a head anyway, and this is intensified by the Supermoon – heads up police, emergency services and hospital workers!

mountain goatThe Full Moon in Capricorn highlights the work we do in the world, our ambitions in life and our willingness to take personal responsibility for how our lives unfold.  This Full Moon brings into focus the difference between our public and our private lives, inviting us to find a balance between the two opposing polarities of work and home.  The spotlight may be on your career or business life, but it’s important to find that balance with your home life.  If there is something that 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 Full Moon is exact on Thurs 14 July, exact at 4.37am Queensland time (AEST) at 21 degrees of Capricorn (the previous evening in Europe and the Americas).  The best time for celebrations and ceremony in Australia will be the previous night while the energy is still building.

New Moon in Cancer 2022

Cancer zodiac signNew Moon in Cancer   Wed 29 June 2022 at 12.52pm Queensland time (AEST) at 7 Cancer
 
Supermoon Full Moon in Capricorn   Thurs 14 July 2022 at 4.37am Queensland time (AEST) at 21 Capricorn
 

Skywatching    Saturn is visible late evening.  By early  morning before sunrise, five planets are visible – Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, and Mercury low on the eastern horizon.  If you catch the end of the Moon cycle, you’ll see the dying Crescent Moon there too.

.
July Lunar Phases & Moon Planting Guide ☘️🍃🎋

.

The New Moon in Cancer on Wed 29 June represents the opportunity for a new cycle to begin in relation to the feminine. Cancer is ruled by the Moon, symbolising women, mothering and the sacred feminine. This New Moon represents the beginning of 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 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 don’t like to let go of anything! The New Moon in Cancer represents the beginning of a new phase in our relationship with the past, an opportunity to emotionally release whatever no longer serves us. The Australian Bush Flower Essence Bottlebrush is particularly good for supporting you to let go.

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.

If you have a planet close to 7 degrees Cancer (within a degree either side), a new cycle is starting in whatever that planet symbolises (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 12.52pm AEST.

Neptune turns retrograde 2022

Neptune turns retrograde

.

Neptune

Neptune slows to a standstill ready to turn retrograde on 28 June at 25 degrees Pisces, softening boundaries and looking for solutions that are all-inclusive, reminding us that we all belong to one humanity.

For the next five months, we have the opportunity to revisit the dreams and visions of the past seven months, and to integrate the inspirational and visionary energy of Neptune more fully into our lives.

At the other end of the Neptunian spectrum, we also have the opportunity to review the ways in which illusion, self-deception and escapism (possibly even addictive patterns of behaviour) play out in our lives, and to turn this around so we can connect more fully with the spiritual longing of Neptune.

If your birthday is around 16 March, you’ll feel this dreamy Neptunian energy very strongly.  Use it wisely by channelling it into creativity, art, music, meditation, anything that activates your right-brain – otherwise, if you try to keep to left-brain activities like doing your accounts, you’ll experience it as brain meltdown!  The Universe is inviting you to get creative during this time.

Neptune is retrograde until 4 Dec 2022.

June Solstice 2022

June Solstice 2022

.

Equinox

The Solstice falls on Tues 21 June.  The word ‘solstice’ means ‘the Sun stands still’, as it reaches the furthest point on its journey along the horizon.  If you’ve never tracked where the Sun rises each morning on the horizon, and noticed how that point changes with the seasons, getting progressively further north or south, then I really invite you to do so!

This stillpoint is the origin of the ancient standing stones, tracking alignments over the course of a year (and much more besides, like predicting eclipses, but that’s another story!).

The June solstice is the furthest north that the Sun rises, which is mid-summer in the northern hemisphere, and mid-winter in the southern hemisphere.  And guess what? On that day, the Sun is directly overhead at the Tropic of Cancer – that’s how the Tropics got their name, because the June solstice is by definition the moment the Sun moves into the tropical zodiac sign of Cancer. 

winter solstice Newgrange

The June solstice is the longest day of summer (northern hemisphere), or the shortest day of winter (southern hemisphere), and after this, the days get shorter (northern hemisphere) or longer (southern hemisphere) as we move towards the September Equinox where day and night are equal once more.

The solstice is the real turning point of the year, and was always celebrated in ancient times, often with bonfires and dancing.  Plants especially respond to the change in the length of days, often only germinating either before or after the solstice.  If we were more in tune with Nature, ie without artificial light, we’d respond a lot more obviously too!

The solstice is exact at 7.14pm Queensland time (AEST).

Solstices have always been traditional mid-season times of celebration and feasting.

Have a wonderful Solstice, whether you’re celebrating midsummer or midwinter! ❤️

Supermoon Full Moon in Sagittarius 2022

Supermoon Full Moon in Sagittarius 2022

.

SuperMoon

The Full Moon in Sagittarius on Tues 14 June is the first of three consecutive Supermoons this year, appearing larger and brighter in the sky than the usual.

A Supermoon occurs when the Full Moon coincides with the Moon’s closest point to the Earth in her monthly orbit, making the Full Moon appear much bigger in the night sky.  The effects we normally associate with the Full Moon are really heightened by the Supermoon, so we’re likely to experience feelings running high, a stronger-than-usual emotional charge and tense situations reaching a climax.

Supermoons are also associated with higher tides than usual, and extreme weather patterns like storms and flooding.  Full Moons tend to bring situations to a head anyway, and this is intensified by the Supermoon – heads up police, emergency services and hospital workers!

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.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius can also bring up issues of trust, whether that’s trust in others, trust in yourself – or ultimately of course – trust in the Universe.

The Full Moon is exact at 9.51pm Queensland time (AEST) at 23 Sagittarius.  Check your chart to see which part of your life is under the spotlight.  Remember the effects will be stronger than usual because it’s a Supermoon.
