SuperMoon Full Moon in Virgo 2020

supermoonSuperMoon Full Moon in Virgo:  Tues 10 March 2020, exact at 3.47am Queensland time (AEST) at 19 degrees Virgo (the previous day in Europe & the Americas)

 

The Full Moon in Virgo this lunar month is another SuperMoon, the second in the consecutive sequence of four SuperMoons this year, intensifying the energies and heightening our emotional responses at these Full Moons.  SuperMoons are associated with extreme weather patterns, like all the storms and flooding we had with last month’s SuperMoon, so it doesn’t look like the extreme nature of the weather events we’re currently experiencing is likely to go away anytime soon.  In a SuperMoon, the Moon is closer to the Earth than usual, so the Full Moon appears larger in the sky, causing tides to be higher, and intensifying all the things you normally associate with a Full Moon, like feelings running high.  Full Moons tend to bring situations to a head, and this will be intensified by the SuperMoon – heads up police, emergency services and hospital workers!

The Full Moon falls in the early hours of Tues 10 March in Australia (the previous day in Europe and the Americas). 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 highlights the need for balance between the grounded, practical attention to detail of Virgo, and the holistic vision of Pisces, and this will be intensified by the SuperMoon. The Full Moon is exact at 3.47am Queensland time (AEST), so the best night to celebrate the Full Moon will be the previous evening.  Check your birth chart to see which house is under the spotlight at 19 degrees Virgo.

Supermoon Full Moon in Leo – first of four supermoons

supermoon Full Moon in Leo on Sun 9 Feb is the first of four consecutive Supermoons this year, appearing much larger and brighter in the sky than usual.  A Full Moon 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 a much higher emotional charge, tense situations reaching a climax, higher tides than usual and lots of extreme weather events at this time.

 

The Full Moon in Leo 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.  The Full Moon is exact at 5.33pm AEST at 20 degrees of Leo and all these effects will be heightened by the fact that it’s a Supermoon.

Supermoon New Moon in Libra 2019

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

New Moon in Leo 2019

New MoonNew Moon Supermoon, watch the tides!

Mercury direct on this Leo New Moon

 

New Moon in Leo   Thurs 1 Aug 2019, exact at 1.12pm Queensland time (AEST) at 8 degrees Leo

Full Moon in Aquarius   Thurs 15 Aug 2019, exact at 10.29pm Queensland time (AEST) at 22 degrees Aquarius

Skywatching   Jupiter can be seen overhead in the evening, followed a few hours later by Saturn. 

 

Most of us will feel a definite shift in the energy with this New Moon in Leo, finally moving out of the intensity of the eclipse season of the past six weeks.  Some people are still doing it tough though – if you have planets between 15-22 degrees of Capricorn, you’ll really be feeling the effects of transiting Pluto, South Node and Saturn …. (this also applies to these degrees of the other cardinal signs: Cancer, Libra and Aries). The Universe is really challenging you to clean up your act, transform certain aspects of your life, step into your power and accept full responsibility for your life – it’s an absolutely huge time for you!

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.

 

The New Moon in Leo 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 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.

Over the next 3 months we have 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) and this closeness coincides with either a New or Full Moon.  Because of the extra-closeness of the Moon at this time, her effects are felt much more strongly. Tides are likely to be much higher than usual at this time.

Because this New Moon in Leo is also a SuperMoon, the effects of this New Moon are enhanced and magnified.

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 8 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 1.12pm AEST.

After three weeks of its usual communication challenges, delays and frustrations, Mercury goes direct on the day of the New Moon after its recent retrograde period, stationing at 23 degrees Cancer.  We can all breathe a sigh of relief now as the frustrations of the last three weeks ease and communications become a lot smoother again. In the days leading up to Mercury going direct, continue to double-check appointments and flight times, that you have your keys with you, and that messages get through OK.  Remember that confusion and misunderstandings occur much more easily at this time. Try to delay any major purchases or contract-signing till at least a week after Mercury’s gone direct again.

Supermoon Full Moon on the Equinox

The Full Moon falls on the Equinox – how wonderful is that synchronicity, we can celebrate both at once!  It’s also a Supermoon, the last in this current series of three Supermoons in 2019, so we may well get extreme weather events (again!) and of course emotions are likely to be running high.  As with all Supermoons, the Moon is closer to the Earth at that point, so she’ll appear larger and brighter in the night sky. 

The 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. This Full Moon in Libra really reinforces and brings home the theme of the Equinox, the need to find balance in our lives.  The Full Moon falls at zero 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 11.43am Queensland time (AEST) on Thurs 21 March, so the best time for celebrations, while the energy is still building, is the previous night.

EquinoxSolsticeThe Equinox falls earlier on the same day Thurs 21 March 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.  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 life, or any other aspect of your life.   The Equinox is exact at 7.58am Queensland time (AEST), so the previous day in Europe and the Americas.

Supermoon Full Moon in Virgo 2019

The Full Moon falls in Virgo on Wed 20 Feb, the second in a series of three Supermoons Supermoons occur when the Moon is closer to the Earth than usual (because of its elliptical orbit round the Earth) and the Full Moon appears larger and brighter in the sky than usual.  In fact, this Supermoon is the closest, therefore appearing largest and brightest, of this current Supermoon series.  Supermoons are associated with extreme weather events, king tides and seismic activity.  They also intensify the usual emotional charge of a Full Moon, when things tend to come to light or reach a climax.

Falling in Virgo, this Full Moon brings into focus our need for order and purity. Virgo is a very analytical sign, and as an Earth sign it’s analytical in a practical way, trying to improve situations (and even people!) in its search for perfection.  Virgo is great at the details, often losing sight of the overall picture, a quality associated with its opposite sign Pisces.  This Virgo Full Moon urges us to find a balance between the microcosmic attention to detail of Virgo with the macrocosmic holistic vision of Pisces.  Hold the vision, and stay grounded in the details too!

The Full Moon is exact in the wee hours of 20 Feb at 1.54am Queensland time (AEST), so the best night to celebrate the Full Moon will be the previous evening when the energy is still building.  If you live in Europe or the Americas (or even Western Australia), the Full Moon will fall the previous night, 19 Feb.  Check your birth chart to see which house is under the spotlight at zero degrees Virgo.

Total Lunar Eclipse, Blood Moon: Supermoon Full Moon in Leo

Blood Moon, total lunar eclipse

Blood Moon, total lunar eclipse

The Full Moon in Leo on Mon 21 Jan is a total lunar eclipse It’s also the first in a sequence of three SuperMoons, where the Moon is closer to the Earth than usual,  intensifying the energies and in particular heightening our emotional responses.  SuperMoons are associated with extreme weather patterns, and total lunar eclipses are associated with earthquakes and earth changes, so this is likely to be a formidable combination! If you have chart points at zero degrees Leo, you’re likely to be strongly affected by this eclipse, so be extra careful at this time. Eclipses bring sudden, unexpected changes, not necessarily negative but it pays to be careful during the eclipse period, and the energies right now are extra strong because of the SuperMoon.  The Full Moon in Leo also highlights the need for a balance between the personal and the collective. The Full Moon in Leo is usually a fun party time, but the party may literally be eclipsed in some way, so take extra care at this time.

This is the last of the Leo-Aquarius eclipses that have been occurring over the past 18 months, as the eclipses are now moving into Cancer-Capricorn.  Interesting when we look back to the first of these eclipses in the royal sign of Leo, Prince Harry had just announced his engagement to Meghan Markle, and now of course, at the end of this cycle, they’ve married and are now expecting their first child.  An African-American divorcee marrying into the British royal family is certainly the kind of “unexpected changes” you could associate with eclipses through Leo, to say nothing of the passionate sermon preached at their wedding by Bishop Michael Curry!!

This lunar eclipse will be visible in North and South America, even the UK, basically anywhere that’s in night-time.  It’s exact at 3.12pm AEST (Queensland time) so won’t be visible in Australia.  Lunar eclipses take a few hours to unfold, so if you’re somewhere where you can see it, it’ll appear first as a partial eclipse, then move into the deep red colour of the full Blood Moon for just over an hour, and of course, as a SuperMoon, the Moon will appear much larger and brighter in the sky than usual.  If you’re celebrating the Full Moon in Australia, the best time for ceremony will be the previous evening Sun 20 Jan while the energies are still building.  Remember my usual warning around eclipses and be extra careful during this period!

Full Moon on the Solstice!!!

EquinoxSolstice

The Full Moon falls with the Solstice this year, and we enter the eclipse season for the upcoming eclipses in January.

The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year (and the shortest night) in the southern hemisphere, when the Sun reaches its southernmost position overhead at the Tropic of Capricorn, named after the Sun’s passage into the zodiac sign of Capricorn on this day.  This is the traditional mid-season time of celebration and feasting.  In the northern hemisphere it is of course the Winter Solstice, the shortest day and the longest night.  This year the solstice falls on Sat 22 Dec at 8.23am Queensland time AEST (Fri 21 Dec in Europe and the Americas). 

The Full Moon falls in Cancer in the early hours of Sun 23 Dec AEST (Sat 22 Dec in Europe and the Americas) just after the Solstice.  The Full Moon in Cancer 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 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 is exact at 3.49am AEST, so Sat 22 Dec is the best night for Full Moon celebrations – as well as solstice celebrations!!!

The eclipse season starts now, after this month’s Full Moon.  The eclipses won’t be till January, but meanwhile take extra care from the Full Moon onwards as the energies start to build.  This means that Christmas time will be in the eclipse season, so please be extra careful on the roads and in your lives generally.  Remember eclipses demand respect, as they often bring unexpected change into our lives!  So take extra care this Christmas period!!

The New Moon falls in Sagittarius on Fri 7 Dec, bringing a fresh burst of enthusiasm for adventure and exploration, as well as the need to enjoy life to the full.  This is a good time to start on a spiritual quest, a study course or overseas travel – anything that expands your horizons.

Sagittarius is a Fire sign, warm and enthusiastic, naturally optimistic with an undying trust in the Universe.  Sagittarians love to explore and go on adventures.  Their sign is ruled by Jupiter, which gives them their boundless enthusiasm – and on the down side, a tendency to go over the top, take lots of risks and over-extend themselves, not knowing when or where to stop.

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 15 degrees of Sagittarius this marks the beginning of a new cycle in whatever that planet symbolizes (eg relationships for Venus).

Remember to create your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.  The New Moon is exact at 5.20pm AEST.

Full Moon in Gemini as Neptune stations

The Full Moon in Gemini on Fri 23 Nov invites us to find a balance between logic and intuitive knowing, so that any action we take integrates both polarities, aware of relevant information yet trusting our intuition.  With Jupiter part of the signature of this Full Moon, the Universe is sending us a strong invitation to trust, both in ourselves and in the Universe.  Check your birth chart to see which house is under the Full Moon spotlight at zero degrees Gemini as this is the area of life where matters may well come to fruition or be revealed.  This Full Moon is exact at 3.39pm Queensland time (AEST).

 

Neptune turns direct on Sun 25 Nov 2018 allowing us to move forwards again after a five-month period of self-reflection in which we have revisited and maybe revised our dreams and visions for the future.  We may also have revisited our spiritual longing, our urge to transcend 3D reality.  As Neptune also symbolises veils of illusion, we may have become more aware of the ways in which we manage to deceive ourselves, only seeing what we want to see or believing what we want to believe.  The cosmic opportunity now is for our vision to be clearer and more connected with Spirit.

 

Neptune stations at 13 degrees Pisces, and hangs around at that degree for almost 2 months before it moves forwards again, so if you have this point strong in your birth chart, or if you’re born around 4 March, you’ll be feeling a strong urge to transcend reality and dissolve into a state of spiritual oneness.  For some of you, this will be felt as a complete brain meltdown, especially if you’re trying to maintain a left-brain existence. The key is to surrender to the inspiration and creativity of Neptune, indulge in art or music, and engage in spiritual practices like meditation so that you transcend reality, rather than get drawn into the negative side of Neptune, escapist patterns such as addictive behaviours.

Full Moon with Uranus – Surprise twists and revelations!!!

This is going to be a very interesting Full Moon.  Full Moons bring illumination at the best of times, but now with Uranus part of the planetary picture, expect matters to come to a head with surprise twists as things get revealed that may be shocking and disruptive! 

The Full Moon falls in Taurus in the early hours of Thurs 25 Oct AEST (effectively the evening of Wed 24 Oct).  The Full Moon in Taurus brings into focus your ability to be sensuous and grounded, an excellent time to indulge the senses and pamper the body.  This Full Moon invites us to find a balance between physical sensuality and emotional depth. 

Uranus joins with this Full Moon to bring something unexpected, exciting or stimulating.  The purpose of Uranus is to bring a higher level of awareness into our lives, waking us up from our normal routine and habits.  Equally (sometimes at the same time!), Uranus can bring disruption, even chaos, as it shakes things up in its attempt to bring in more light.  Uranus is known as the Great Awakener, and that’s what it does, one way or the other!  All you can say for certain with Uranus is ‘Expect the Unexpected’

The Full Moon falls at 1 degree Taurus, so wherever this point falls in your chart is the area of your life that will be under the spotlight now, bringing matters to a head or to resolution, probably with a surprise twist!  There are likely to be some very interesting revelations around at this time (think of the Khashoggi case for example).  The Full Moon is exact at 2.45am AEST (Queensland time) so the best time to celebrate will be the previous night when the energies are still building.

New Moon in Libra 2018

Libra, the scales of balance

New Moon in Libra  Tues 9 Oct 2018, exact at 1.47pm Queensland time (AEST) at 15 degrees Libra

Full Moon in Taurus  Thurs 25 Oct 2018, exact at 2.45am Queensland time (AEST) at 1 degree Taurus (effectively the evening of Wed 24 Oct)

Skywatching:   Venus will continue to be visible as the Evening Star, twinkling brightly in the west, till about mid-Oct, appearing gradually lower in the evening sky until she is no longer visible.  She disappears for 7 days and then reappears as the Morning Starfrom the end of Oct.  Jupiter is above Venus in the west, with Saturn and reddish Mars overhead at sunset.

 

The New Moon falls in Libra on Tues 9 Oct, starting a new cycle in your relationships and connecting with others generally.  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 signsociable 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 consultative 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 15 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 1.47pm Queensland time (AEST).

Old friends and lovers reappear … Venus goes retro ❤️

Venus Rx lovers reconnectOld friends and lovers reappear …

       … echoes of 8 years ago

 

Venus goes retrograde on Sat 6 Oct 2018 (AEST, Fri 5 Oct in Europe & the Americas) at 10 degrees Scorpio.  Venus signifies our urge to relate to others, so 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.

 

Venus retrograde moves through 8-year cycles, so think back to what was happening for you eight years ago (Oct/Nov 2010) when Venus last went retrograde in Scorpio & Libra, for insight into what the themes might be for you this time round.  Venus is retrograde for six weeks until Fri 16 Nov when she turns direct again at 25 degrees Libra.  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 the end of Oct.

Equinox

EquinoxThe Equinox falls on Sun 23 Sept at 11.54am 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 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.
