What’s Out of Balance in your Life? Sept Equinox 2022

EquinoxSolsticeThe Equinox falls in the early hours of Mon 21 March in Queensland (the previous day in Europe and the Americas), as the Sun moves out of dreamy Pisces and into action-oriented Aries.
.

The Equinox marks the change of the seasons, the time of year when day and night are of equal length and the seasons come to a point of balance (equi-nox is Latin for ‘equal night’).

.

This is a perfect time to explore what might be out of balance in your own life and find a way to restore that balance, whether it’s in your relationships, your work-family balance, or any other part of your life.

.

The Equinox is exact at 1.33am Queensland time (AEST) Mon 21 March, the previous day in Europe and the Americas.

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.

New Moon in Pisces 2022

New Moon in Pisces   Thurs 3 March 2022 at 3.34am Queensland time (AEST) at 12 Pisces (the previous day in Europe and the Americas)

March Lunar Phases & Moon Planting Guide ☘️🍃🎋

 

The New Moon in Pisces in the early hours of Thurs 3 March (Queensland time) brings the opportunity for a renewed focus on spirituality and the desire to transcend our 3D reality, enhanced by its close conjunction to Jupiter.  Pisces has a strong sense of divine homesickness, a spiritual longing to return to source and merge into oneness.  This New Moon is a great time to begin a new cycle of spiritual practices!

Pisces is also associated with imagination and creativity.  This is an excellent time to begin a new cycle of creative pursuits, such as art, photography or music, essentially anything that takes you into that right-brain space of timelessness!

Pisces is highly idealistic, bringing tremendous compassion into the world.  However its downside is illusion and deception, making us prone to being deceived (and deceiving ourselves!).  Be careful of falling under some kind of glamour (spell) under the influence of this New Moon, seeing the world through rose-coloured glasses!

This New Moon is a great opportunity to begin a new cycle with regard to any escapist tendencies that you’re aware of, including any form of addiction. The Piscean urge to transcend reality can express negatively as escapism which in its most extreme forms can develop into addictive patterns of behaviour.  This is a great opportunity to focus on transforming these into more creative or spiritual pursuits.

Wherever you have 12 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 3.34am Queensland time (AEST), so it falls on the previous day in Europe and the Americas.  Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.

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.

Valentine’s Day 2022

99419DE7-44F8-4FB0-B164-0C79D0C1DBAC_4_5005_c
Venus and Mars together in the zodiac is very auspicious for Valentine’s Day this year, implying a unity and easy understanding between the lovers.  This unity will continue for about a week.
However with the Moon opposite Pluto on Valentine’s Day, be prepared for some strong emotional undercurrents and maybe even power plays to be part of what’s going on.

New Moon in Aquarius 2022 – Chinese New Year

New Moon in Aquarius 2022 – Chinese New Year

.

11Aquarius1

The New Moon in Aquarius on Tues 1 Feb is an opportunity to begin a new cycle in authenticity.  To what extent are you really being true to yourself?  Do you feel free to be true to yourself?  Aquarius is a sign associated with freedom, authenticity, and equality at both the individual and collective level.  It is strongly non-conformist, needing to be different and unique, free of society’s expectations, a natural rebel (I can hear all the Aquarians cheering!!!)  It is also focused on social responsibility, connection at the level of mass consciousness and global humanitarian concerns.

Aquarius is an air sign, loving to debate ideas, the more original, inventive and zany the better. Aquarians are very sociable and tend to be known as the party animals of the zodiac!

The New Moon is exact at 3.46pm Queensland time (AEST). Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.

If your birthday is close to this date (within a day either side), this is the beginning of an important new cycle in your life in terms of your sense of identity and your purpose in the world.

Wherever you have 12 degrees of Aquarius in your birth chart indicates the area of life that will be most affected by this New Moon – for example, if this New Moon falls in your 10th house, this signifies the beginning of a new cycle in your career or professional life.

This is also the New Moon that marks Chinese New Year.  Like so many traditional cultures, the Chinese New Year is based on the lunar calendar.  This New Moon brings the beginning of the Chinese Lunar Year of the Tiger.

Happy Chinese New Year!

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.
