Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio: Secrets come to light?

Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio: Secrets come to light?

.

Blood Moon

The Full Moon in Scorpio on Mon 16 May is a total lunar eclipse, a blood moon which won’t be visible in Australia – the best place to see it would be South America or the East Coast of North America.  Its effects will still be felt in your chart though!

At the collective level, total lunar eclipses are associated with earth changes such as volcanos and earthquakes, and extreme weather events.

At a personal level, an eclipsed Full Moon in Scorpio is likely to be a highly emotional time when deep and passionate feelings are revealed.  There is a strong possibility of secrets or intensely private matters coming to light, possibly with a sexual content or concerning financial matters.

Interestingly, this Scorpio eclipse falls in the week leading up to the general election in Australia, so keep an eye out for juicy scandals hitting the media!!!  The Full Moon also has Mars-Neptune closely configured so there’s likely to be a visionary, idealistic feel to actions taken now.

This Lunar Eclipse also falls on a couple of really significant points in Queen Elizabeth’s chart – fittingly perhaps for her Platinum Jubilee, the culmination of her reign. It could also bring about unexpected changes for her in terms of her public duties and her position in the world.  In fact the Taurus-Scorpio eclipses this year activate many of the charts of the British Royal family, so don’t be surprised if we see significant changes occurring.  If you’d like to know more, my workshop on the Taurus-Scorpio eclipses (recorded at the end of last year) discusses these charts in detail.

The eclipsed Full Moon falls at 25 Scorpio on Mon 16 May 2022 at 2.14pm Queensland time (AEST) at 25 Scorpio.  The best time for ceremony will be the previous evening while the energies are still building.

Full Moon in Virgo 2022

 

The Full Moon in Virgo on Fri 18 March is the Lenten Moon, the last Full Moon before Easter.

.

The Full Moon in Virgo brings into focus our need for order and purity. Virgo is a very analytical sign, and as an Earth sign it is analytical in a practical way, trying to improve situations (and even people!) in its search for perfection.

.

The Virgo Full Moon is where we seek to reconcile Virgo’s attention to detail with the holistic vision of Pisces, bringing into balance the microcosm and macrocosm.

.

Check your birth chart to see which house is under the spotlight at 27 degrees Virgo.  The Full Moon is exact at 5.17pm Queensland time (AEST) on 18 March.

Full Moon in Leo 2022

Full Moon in Leo 2022

 

The Full Moon in Leo on 17 Feb highlights our need for balance between the focus on oneself, the whole cultural “cult of the individual” approach that tends to be very self-absorbed, and a focus on one’s community, the collective experience where there’s a strong sense of equality and connection.

LeoThe Full Moon in Leo is an excellent time for partying or simply going out and enjoying yourself, maybe even simply treating yourself to something special, so celebrate in whatever way feels right for you.  Leo is a Fire sign, so this is time to have some fun!  
 
The Full Moon is exact at 2.56am Queensland time (AEST), so the best time for Full Moon ceremony or celebrations will be the previous evening.  Check your chart to see which house is under the spotlight at 28 degrees Leo – events in this area of your life are likely to come to fruition (or come to a head!) at this time.

Potent Full Moon as Venus turns retro

The Full Moon in Gemini on Sun 19 Dec invites us to find a balance between logic and intuitive knowing, between the cold hard facts and our beliefs, ie what we believe to be true. This Full Moon invites us to integrate both polarities, yet also warns us against being too gullible.  Full Moons tend to bring situations to a head so don’t be surprised if things get heated at this time.

On a personal note, check your birth chart to see which house is under the Full Moon spotlight at 27 degrees Gemini as this is the area of life where matters may well come to fruition or be revealed.  The Full Moon is exact at 2.35pm Queensland time (AEST), so the best time for ceremony or celebrations will be the previous evening while the energy is still building.

This Full Moon is likely to be especially potent as Venus goes retrograde on the same day, Sun 19 Dec.  Venus is stationing at 26 Capricorn very close to Pluto, giving this particular Venus retro a compulsive or perhaps obsessive feel!

Venus signifies our urge to relate to others.  Don’t be surprised if old friends and lovers reappear in your life during the retrograde phase of Venus – you may hear from people you haven’t seen for ages.  Or you may be the one seeking to reconnect.  Venus retrograde often brings an opportunity to revisit past relationships, especially if there is any unfinished business there. Just be aware that with the Pluto connection, things could get very intense, messy or overly dramatic!  Stay in your power!!

Venus retrograde moves through 8-year cycles, so think back to what was happening for you eight years ago in Dec 2013-Jan 2014  when Venus last went retrograde in Capricorn, for insight into the themes that might arise for you this time round.  Venus is retrograde for six weeks until Sat 29 Jan 2022.  If you have Taurus or Libra prominent in your chart (especially as your rising sign), Venus retrograde cycles are likely to have a strong impact on you.

Venus will continue to be visible as the Evening Star for a couple of weeks after she turns retrograde, but will be seen gradually lower in the evening sky until she is no longer visible as she gets closer and closer to the Sun.  With this retrograde conjunction to the Sun, Venus disappears for seven days, after which time she emerges transformed as the Morning Star, and a whole new 584-day cycle begins (a cycle sacred to the Mayans).

In ancient times Venus was seen as a dual goddess – the Evening Star was her peaceful aspect, whereas the Morning Star was her warrior incarnation; the rebirth of the Morning Star was seen as an auspicious time to go into battle.  Venus will reappear as the Morning Star from mid-Jan.

Lunar eclipse in Taurus 2021

Blood MoonThe Full Moon in Taurus falling on Fri 19 Nov is a lunar eclipse, the first of the Taurus-Scorpio eclipses, intensifying the energy of this Full Moon.

Full Moons tend to bring situations to a head and the lunar eclipse will intensify that.  We’re also likely to see extreme earth changes around the time of this eclipse – the recent flooding and landslides in Vancouver, Canada are just one example of this.

Technically this is a partial eclipse, but at 97%, it’s an almost total lunar eclipse, so we can expect to see a Blood Moon with just a sliver of light on one side.

At the collective level, this eclipsed Full Moon in Taurus asks that we bring our attention to Mother Earth, that we honour our role as her guardians and caretakers of this beautiful planet of ours. This is a cosmic invitation to create a new path forwards, taking conscious action to insist that governments, multinational corporations – and even individuals – stop abusing their power and stop abusing the planet.

As the eclipses move through the signs of Taurus and Scorpio over the next couple of years, we will be drawn more and more into letting go of these outdated, exploitative business models that ravage the Earth, and move towards creating a new path which honours the Earth and all forms of life here.

At a personal level, this eclipsed Full Moon in Taurus brings into focus your ability to be sensuous and grounded and is an excellent time to indulge the senses and pamper the body.  This Full Moon invites you to find a balance between the physical sensuality of Taurus and the emotional depth of Scorpio, great if everything is open in your relationship, but if there are underlying issues around jealousy or possessiveness, this Lunar eclipse could bring the situation to a head with some emotional drama playing out!

Check your birth chart to see which house is under the Full Moon spotlight at 27 degrees Taurus as this is the area of life where matters may well come to fruition or be revealed, intensified by the eclipse.

The lunar eclipse will be exact in Queensland at 7.03pm AEST (the Full Moon is exact at 6.57pm) and the eclipse will be visible for some time before and after that.

Powder-Keg Full Moon in Aries 2021

This year’s Full Moon in Aries promises to pack quite a punch!

This Full Moon is aligned with a challenging T-square pattern between Mars, Pluto and Eris, so all these energies will be present in how this Aries Full Moon manifests.

Full Moons tend to bring things to light, and because Pluto is under considerable pressure, only just starting to move forwards once more, issues that have been bubbling away beneath the surface are likely to finally rise to the surface and burst onto the scene, upping the intensity considerably.

Typically, a Full Moon in Aries highlights our ability to be assertive and take action, yet it also calls for us to find a balance between our need for independence and the need for co-operation with others.  This dichotomy is likely to be taken to an extreme now – and with Mars, the planet of action and warfare, Pluto’s issues of power and destruction, and Eris fighting against exclusion, we have a very potent mix.  All in all it makes for a powder-keg situation, like a volcano about to erupt.

More positively, this Full Moon could bring abuses of power to light, the voices of those excluded could finally be heard, with the result that action is taken to remedy and redress those situations.

The Full Moon is at 27 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 falls shortly after midnight on Thurs 21 Oct (exact at 00.56am) 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 the previous day.

Romantic Full Moon in Pisces 2021

Romantic Full Moon in Pisces 2021

 

The Full Moon falls in Pisces on Tues 21 Sept 2021 (the previous day in Europe and the Americas).  This is a dreamy, romantic time which can bring a yearning for oneness and spiritual fulfillment.

Mars and Neptune are closely aligned with this Full Moon which adds a sense of idealism or altruism, although more negatively it can also have the potential to be deceptive, so be careful you don’t fall for a scam at this time!

PiscesThe Full Moon in Pisces can be a time when creative projects come to fruition, particularly if they’re for a cause you’ve been advocating for some time. As this is a Pisces Full Moon, just make sure you’re seeing things clearly and not as you’d wish to see them, through rose-coloured glasses!

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 at 28 degrees Pisces and is exact at 9.54am AEST, so the best night for Full Moon celebrations will be the previous evening while the energies are still building.

True Blue Moon!!! Second Full Moon in Aquarius 2021

True Blue Moon!!! 

Second Full Moon in Aquarius (True Blue Moon)

Sun 22 Aug 2021, exact at 10.01pm Queensland time (AEST) at 29 degrees Aquarius

.

We have a true Blue Moon this lunar month as the Full Moon on Sun 22 Aug is the second Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius, falling at 29 degrees. You’ll see lots of erroneous media definitions of a Blue Moon, but astrologically, it’s when there’s a second Full Moon within the same zodiac sign, a fairly rare occurrence, and nothing to do with the actual colour of the Moon!  Last month’s Full Moon was at one degree Aquarius, and this month’s falls at 29 degrees, making it a true genuine Blue Moon.

This second Full Moon in Aquarius highlights again the importance of establishing a balance between the needs of the collective and the needs of the individual, something that’s very much in the news at the moment in connection with the pandemic.  This second Full Moon in Aquarius invites us – yet again – to find a solution that honours both sets of needs.

This Full Moon also provides another, second opportunity to bring new and experimental ideas into sharp focus, ideas that are likely to benefit the collective.

Full Moons often bring situations to a head, so be prepared for collective issues such as those associated with the pandemic – or humanitarian issues such as refugees (think of the plight of the Afghan interpreters for example) –  to reach some kind of crisis point, where resolution becomes imperative.  The Full Moon falls at 29 degrees Aquarius and is exact at 10.01pm AEST.

SuperMoon Full Moon in Capricorn 2021

SuperMoonThe Full Moon in Capricorn on Fri 25 June AEST brings the current eclipse season to a close.

This Full Moon in Capricorn is the last of three consecutive SuperMoons this year, appearing larger and brighter in the sky than the usual Full Moon, and having a stronger effect on our emotions and the tides.

A SuperMoon Full Moon 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, 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 also brings into focus the difference between our public and 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 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 Fri 25 June 2021, exact at 4.39am Queensland time (AEST) at 3 degrees of Capricorn (the previous evening in Europe and the Americas).  The best time for ceremony or celebrations in Australia will be the previous night while the energy is still building.
