Full Moon in Libra 2021 – the Lenten Moon

The Full Moon in Libra gives us an opportunity to bring our lives into balance, the cosmic invitation extended by the Equinox just nine days earlier.

This Full Moon in Libra highlights our need to relate to others, yet it also emphasizes the need to find a balance between the needs of the self and the needs of the other, between the need for independence and the need for compromise.  The Full Moon in Libra strongly reinforces the theme of the Equinox, the need to find balance in our lives.

The Full Moon falls at 8 degrees Libra, so check the houses of your chart to see which part of your life is under the spotlight.

The Full Moon is exact at 4.48am Queensland time (AEST) on Mon 29 March 2021 (the previous day in Europe and the Americas).  If you’re planning Full Moon ceremony, the best time will be the previous evening while the energies are still building.

This Full Moon is known as the Lenten Moon’ as it is the Full Moon before Easter.

Easter Sunday this year falls on 4 April.  ‘What’s this got to do with Astrology?’ I hear you ask …

Well, not many people realize but the date of Easter is determined astrologically, by the Moon and the Equinox.  Easter Sunday is set as the first Sunday after the first Full Moon (the ‘Lenten Moon’) following the Equinox.  This is why the date of Easter changes each year, sometimes falling at the end of March and sometimes much later in April.

Astrology is present in our everyday lives much more than most people realize!

Full Moon in Virgo 2021

The Full Moon in Virgo on Sat 27 Feb brings into focus our need for order and purity, with issues of health and hygiene really likely to come to the fore.

Issues concerning the pandemic will probably reach a peak at this time.  This could go either way, and that will depend on each country and the measures they’ve taken.  This Full Moon is likely to see either the lockdown and quarantine measures pay off big time, or (in other situations) the pandemic may spiral out of control.

Part of the energy of this Full Moon is that our need for connection (Venus in Pisces) is completely at odds with our need to keep the situation contained and sterile (Full Moon in Virgo).  It’s a tough balancing act and we need to find ways to integrate this polarity.

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.

Virgo is great at the details, yet often loses sight of the overall picture, a quality associated with its opposite sign Pisces.

The Virgo Full Moon asks us to balance the microcosmic attention to detail of Virgo with the macrocosmic holistic vision of Pisces.

The ideal outcome here is to integrate a practical level of detail with the overarching vision of the way forward where the level of connection people are desiring is not only possible but also achievable.  Hold the vision, yet stay grounded in the practical details too!

The Full Moon is exact at 6.17pm AEST.  Check your birth chart to see which house is under the spotlight at 8 degrees Virgo.

Full Moon in Leo 2021

Full Moon in Leo 2021

 

Full Moon: Fri 29 Jan 2021, exact at 5.16am Queensland time (AEST) at 9 degrees Leo (so the best time for ceremony is the previous evening)

 

The Full Moon in Leo on Fri 29 Jan 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.

The 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’s a Fire sign, so this is time to have some fun!  As Jupiter forms part of the planetary picture of this Full Moon,  there will be a natural exuberance with this Full Moon – just be careful you don’t overdo things!

This Full Moon is exact at 5.16am Queensland time (AEST), so the best time for Full Moon ceremony or celebrations will be the previous evening.

Check your birth chart to see which house is under the spotlight at 9 degrees Leo – events in this area of your life are likely to come to fruition (or come to a head!) at this time.

Full Moon in Cancer 2020

Full Moon in Cancer 2020

 

Full Moon

Full Moon in Cancer  – Wed 30 Dec 2020 at 1.28pm Queensland time (AEST) 

 

The Full Moon in Cancer on Wed 30 Dec invites us to find a balance between the deep emotional connection of family and the outer, worldly achievement that is found in our work life.

This Full Moon also highlights our emotional attachment to the past, so don’t be surprised if strong feelings get stirred up again, giving us the opportunity to finally heal, let go and release the past.  This is a good time for us to reassess our unconscious, “autopilot” responses, and to change any behaviour that is no longer appropriate.

The Full Moon falls at 8 degrees Cancer – use your birth chart to find which part of your life is under the spotlight right now.

The Full Moon is exact at 1.28pm AEST, so the previous evening is the best night for Full Moon celebrations!!!

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini

Remember that we’re in eclipse season now, in the lead-up to the first of the two eclipses coming soon.  Take extra care at this time!

.

penumbral lunar eclipse

The Full Moon in Gemini on Mon 30 Nov 2020 is a penumbral (half-shadow) lunar eclipse, intensifying the energy of this Full Moon.

A Gemini Full Moon invites us to find a balance between logic and intuitive knowing, between the cold hard facts and what we believe to be true (which seems very relevant to the way the US election has played out!).

This eclipsed Full Moon invites us to integrate both polarities, yet also warns us of being too gullible.

Full Moons tend to bring situations to a head and the lunar eclipse will intensify that.

Meanwhile Venus opposite Uranus in the eclipsed Full Moon chart indicates that the “situations coming to a head” could involve surprises or upsets connected with relationships, friendships or alliances, possibly more secrets revealed!  Stay tuned!

On a personal note, check your birth chart to see which house is under the Full Moon spotlight at 8 degrees Gemini as this is the area of life where matters may well come to fruition or be revealed.

This eclipsed Full Moon is exact at 7.29pm Queensland time (AEST).

“Blue Moon” on Hallowe’en?

“Blue Moon” on Hallowe’en?

– Is this a true Blue Moon?

..

pumpkin lantern 1In the Celtic Calendar, Sat 31 Oct is the festival of Samhain or Hallowe’en, the night before All Saints’ Day (ie All Hallows’ Eve), when the spirits of the dead are said to be around and the veils between the worlds are at their thinnest.  It’s one of the old “quarter days”, falling half-way between the Autumn Equinox and Midwinter Solstice in the Northern hemisphere, and marks the beginning of Winter.  Hallowe’en is traditionally celebrated by bonfires, pumpkin lanterns and wearing costumes to disguise oneself from the spirits flying around.  I remember going to Hallowe’en parties as a youngster carrying garlic in my pockets to ward off the nasty spirits!

Maypole

In the Southern hemisphere, the seasons are reversed, so this is the Celtic festival of Beltane, celebrated with flowers in full bloom marking the beginning of Summer.  Beltane is traditionally celebrated by dancing round the maypole, well-dressing (decorating village wells with flowers), Morris dancers and other forms of fertility celebrations, including crowning a maiden Queen of the May.

You’ll see a lot in the media about a “Blue Moon on Hallowe’en” … so OK, let’s look at this.  We have a Full Moon in Taurus on the evening of Hallowe’en/Beltane – though technically here in Queensland, it‘s not exact till the wee hours of the following day, just after midnight on Sun 1 Nov 2020.

**Is this Full Moon a true BLUE MOON?**

This phrase “Blue Moon” gets bandied about in the media whenever there are two Full Moons in a calendar month, claiming that the second one is a Blue Moon. That’s the popular definition, and it’s almost correct, but not quite! The correct astrological definition of a Blue Moon is when two Full Moons fall in the same zodiac sign, a much rarer instance.  For this to happen, the first Full Moon has to fall at zero or one degree and the second one at 28 or 29 degrees of the same sign, which is not happening here.   The last true Blue Moon was last year, the second Full Moon in Libra on Fri 19 April 2019.  This fell at 29 degrees of Libra, after the first Full Moon in Libra had been the previous month 21 March 2019 at zero degrees of Libra (yes right on the Equinox!).  So they weren’t in the same calendar month, but they were in the same zodiac sign.

It’s a very potent Full Moon, with an exact contact to Uranus which is likely to bring some surprises – if not some upsets – to the scene.  Not a great time to be having the Queensland elections!  Even the US elections are pretty close to this date, and will be beset by Mercury stationing to go direct.  Remember George W Bush’s first election, that went to recount after recount and eventually had to go to the Supreme Court for a final decision?  That election was on a Mercury stationary day!  For more astro lowdown on the US election, see my blog on Mercury retro.

The 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 us to find a balance between the physical sensuality of Taurus and the emotional depth of Scorpio. The Full Moon falls at 8 degrees Taurus, so wherever this point falls in your chart, this is the area of your life that will be under the spotlight now, bringing matters to a head or to resolution, probably with some surprises thrown in too!

Full Moon in Aries 2020 carries a healing dimension

Full Moon in Aries 2020 carries a healing dimension

 

1AriesThe 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.

.

chiron vase paintingThere’s a healing dimension to this Full Moon, with the Moon very close to Chiron, the archetype of the Wounded Healer.  Chiron brings healing by making us fully conscious of the wounding, and then the wound has to be cauterised for the healing to take place. So yes, the final outcome is healing, but the process can often be painful.

.
Full Moons tend to bring things to light, and the Full Moon in Aries is likely to bring to light actions connected with the warrior aspect of the Masculine.  This could manifest as a call to arms to support a cause.  Alternatively this energy could manifest in connection with the armed forces – the situation in some cities in the United States come to mind, where the military have been sent in to deal with unrest.  The Full Moon could also highlight the more negative theme of toxic masculinity and the many ways that can play out in society.  With Pluto stationary at the same time (see previous post), issues that have been bubbling away beneath the surface are now likely to finally rise to the surface and burst onto the scene, upping the intensity considerably.  All in all it makes for a powder keg situation at this Aries Full Moon, thankfully accompanied by the opportunity to bring healing to the situation through a new level of awareness.

.
The Full Moon is at 9 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 on the morning of Fri 2 Oct at 7.05am 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.

Full Moon in Pisces 2020

Full MoonThe Full Moon falls in Pisces on Wed 2 Sept 2020 at 10 degrees Pisces.  This is a dreamy, romantic time which can bring a yearning for oneness and spiritual fulfillment, with an added frisson of excitement from the exact sextile to Uranus.

It can also be a time when creative projects come to fruition, again with that sense of excitement or heightened consciousness.

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!  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 3.21pm AEST, so the best night for Full Moon celebrations will be the previous evening while the energies are still building.

Full Moon in Aquarius 2020

The Full Moon in Aquarius on Tues 4 Aug highlights the importance of establishing a balance between the needs of the collective and the needs of the individual.  It may also bring new and experimental ideas into sharp focus.

Full Moons often bring situations to a head, so be prepared for humanitarian issues (such as refugees, or  Covid pandemic issues affecting the collective) to reach some kind of crisis point, where resolution becomes imperative.

The Full Moon falls at 11 degrees of Aquarius and is exact at 1.58am AEST, so the best time for ceremony is the previous evening, Mon 3 Aug, while the energies are still building.

Second lunar eclipse – Full Moon in Capricorn 2020

penumbral lunar eclipse

Things are more than a little intense at the moment.  We’re coming to the end of an extended eclipse season, which always amps up the intensity. Remember eclipses bring sudden change into our lives, often from left field, so the more conscious you can be at this time, the better! 

 

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn on Sun 5 July is a penumbral lunar eclipse where the Full Moon enters the half-shadow of the Earth and darkens a little.

This is the second lunar eclipse we have experienced in this extended eclipse season – usually there’s only one, and this extra eclipse is certainly adding to the emotional intensity of everything that’s happening right now.

Full Moons tend to bring situations to a head, to a climax of some kind, and when amped up by an eclipse, this can be a powerful time when feelings and emotions run high. The eclipsed Full Moon in Capricorn brings into sharp relief the difference between the hierarchical structures (or more negatively, control) imposed by the establishment (Capricorn) and the emotional-security-focused, heartfelt response of Cancer.  This eclipse falls across the Sun in the US chart (just after Independence Day), so keep an eye on the international news! 

At a more personal level, the eclipsed Full Moon in Capricorn brings into focus the difference between our public and private lives, inviting 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 2.44pm AEST at 13 degrees Capricorn – so the best night for Full Moon ceremony will be the previous evening while the energies are still building.

 

Stay conscious during this eclipse season!!!
