Full steam ahead! 🌟 New Moon in Libra 2021

New Moon in Libra
Wed 6 Oct 2021, exact at 9.05pm Queensland time (AEST) at 13 degrees Libra

Full Moon in Aries
Thurs 21 Oct 2021, exact at 00.56am Queensland time (AEST) at 27 degrees Aries

Skywatching
Venus is visible in the west, shining brightly as the Evening Star. 
Saturn and Jupiter are visible in the evening sky, overhead a few hours after sunset.
Mercury disappears from view until the time of the Full Moon, when Mercury re-emerges in the pre-dawn light as a Morning Star

There are big energies around this month as Mars gets into the picture with both the New Moon and the Full Moon – giving boosts of energy but also upping the ante with the potential to create conflict  This month’s Full Moon could get very eventful!

 

The New Moon falls in Libra on Wed 6 Oct bringing the opportunity to start a new cycle in your relationships and connections with others.

Libra is the sign of the born diplomat, the mediator who can always see both sides of any issue and wants the result to be harmonious. The symbol for Libra after all is the scales, where things can be weighed and balanced.

This New Moon in Libra is a good time to focus on restoring balance in your life, consolidating the theme of the Equinox last month by implementing whatever changes are required to bring your life back into balance and harmony.
Libra
Libra is an Air sign, sociable and communicative, with a huge need for fairness.  It’s also one of the leadership signs, but its point of difference is that it doesn’t need to be out front – quite the contrary. The leadership style of Libra is inclusive and co-operative, making Libra an excellent leader.  The challenge however 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.

Mars the planet of action is closely configured with this New Moon, providing you with an opportunity to stand up for yourself and stand your ground (in a nice Libran way of course!)  Remember it’s all in the interests of fairness.

Mars adds a dynamic quality to the energy of this New Moon.  Any intentions you set now will have that extra boost of energy which means you’re likely to really follow through, with your foot on the accelerator!

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 planets at 13 degrees of Libra, 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 this New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 9.05pm Queensland time (AEST) at 13 degrees Libra.

Time to de-clutter! New Moon in Virgo 2021 

Time to de-clutter!  New Moon in Virgo 2021 

New Moon in Virgo
Tues 7 Sept 2021, exact at 10.51am Queensland time (AEST) at 14 degrees Virgo

Full Moon in Pisces
Tues 21 Sept 2021, exact at 9.54am Queensland time (AEST) at 28 degrees Pisces

Skywatching 
Both Venus and Mercury are visible as Evening Stars in the west, Venus twinkling above Mercury.  Mercury reaches his highest point above the horizon on 14 Sept before he begins his return journey towards the Sun.  You can see him in the early evening sky.
Saturn and Jupiter are visible in the evening sky in the east.  Over the course of the night, Saturn and Jupiter can be seen large and bright travelling across the sky, setting before sunrise

I’m very excited to be giving a talk this month on Margaret Atwood and the “nitty-gritty” of Feminism. It’s the Roy Owen Memorial Lecture for the Queensland Federation of Astrologers, Mon 13 Sept at 7.30pm online.  All welcome, there’s a minimal charge which goes to the QFA.  Bookings essential

*

The New Moon in Virgo on Tues 7 Sept 2021 is likely to introduce changes to the way we approach our everyday life.  This is an excellent time to start a new health regime, go on a diet or go on a cleanse.

The energy flow with a Virgo New Moon is to do anything that brings a new sense of order into your life ….. If you’re thinking of 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!  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 the order which it loves. It has a tendency towards perfectionism and is excellent at attention to detail.  The challenge for Virgo is not getting lost in the details and therefore losing sight of the overall vision, the classic state of “can’t see the wood (forest) for the trees”.  It’s great to be on top of the details, but remember to keep them in context.

With Uranus in an exact trine to this New Moon, you’re likely to feel a strong need to be true to yourself, to be free to express who you really are and how you really feel.

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, and with the influence of Uranus, this is an excellent opportunity to re-invent yourself!

Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 10.51am Queensland time (AEST) at 14 degrees Virgo (it falls the previous  day in the Americas).

August Lunar Phases & Moon Planting Guide ☘️🍃🎋

 

The New Moon in Leo on Sun 8 Aug 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 16 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 11.50pm AEST.

 

PS  On the evening of Wed 11 Aug, there will be the beautiful sight of the slim Crescent Moon close to Venus in the western sky soon after sunset.

July Lunar Phases & Moon Planting Guid☘️🍃🎋

This is a relatively quiet month astrologically after the intense activity of the last few months!  Make the most of it, this is a good time to recharge your batteries!

I’m excited to be diving into Your Secret Self: Mysteries of the 12th House this month – it’s a fascinating exploration of the 12th house, its meanings and symbolism.  Do you have hidden demons or guardian angels?  What are your hidden strengths?  Come along and discover the answer to these (and many other) questions!!!  Register now!

.

The New Moon in Cancer on Sat 10 July 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 18 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 11.16am AEST.

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini 2021

Eclipse annularSolar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini:  Thurs 10 June 2021, exact at 8.53pm Queensland time (AEST) at 19 degrees of Gemini  (eclipse exact at 8.41pm)

Full Moon in Capricorn (SuperMoon):  Fri 25 June 2021, exact at 4.39am Queensland time (AEST) at 3 degrees of Capricorn (the previous evening in Europe and the Americas)

 

Skywatching:  Venus is now moving higher in the evening sky as an Evening Star.  Look for her in the western evening sky after sunset. Mars is also visible in the west, higher in the sky.  Saturn and Jupiter rise around 11pm and by sunrise can be seen high in the sky.

The energies are still really strong this month! 
As I write this, I’ve just heard about the earthquakes in California overnight – and of course last week just before the Blood Moon, Mt Nyiragongo volcano erupted in the Congo, displacing more than 8000 people.  Total Lunar Eclipses and SuperMoons are both associated with severe earth changes like volcanos and earthquakes.  There’s more to the story with the California earthquake – head over to my Facebook page or my AstroTravels group to read about the triggering factors.

The eclipse season continues with the New Moon this month being a total (annular) solar eclipse.  The paradigm-shifting Saturn-Uranus square revisits us, opening yet more cracks in the system, and the Full Moon this month is the last SuperMoon for this year, keeping the intensity level up.  And of course we’re in Mercury retro now till 23 June, so double-check all your transactions and messages!

*

!! WARNING !!
Eclipses demand respect – don’t take any unnecessary risks in eclipse season (We’re still in eclipse season till the next Full Moon)

*

The New Moon on 10 June is a total (annular) solar eclipse.  An annular solar eclipse has the force of a total solar eclipse, it’s just that the Moon, which is blocking out the Sun’s light, is further away from the Earth than usual, so it doesn’t completely cover the disc of the Sun.  Instead it allows a ring of light to be visible around the eclipsed Sun, sometimes called a “Ring of Fire”.  The term ‘annular’ comes from Latin, meaning a ring.  In terms of its astrological effects though, it’s a strong as a total eclipse.

This eclipsed New Moon falls in Gemini, signalling the opportunity to begin a new cycle in the way we communicate, network and exchange ideas – a new cycle that is intensified by the eclipse.

As an Air sign, Gemini is naturally objective and rational, so has a real talent for dealing with information.  Gemini has a combination of sociability and extreme curiosity – the answer to one question simply creates more questions!  Through its association with the media, this can be an excellent sign for journalism. Gemini is also associated with education, and the natural curiosity of this sign often makes learning effortless.  A New Moon in the sign of Gemini can usher in a new cycle in any of these areas.

If your birthday falls close to this eclipsed New Moon, within a day either side, this marks a really significant year ahead for you.  The new cycles starting in your life now are intensified by the solar eclipse, and are likely to affect your sense of self, your identity and your purpose in life.

The eclipsed New Moon falls at 19 degrees Gemini.  If you have points in your birth chart close to this degree (within one degree) you can expect to begin a significant new cycle in that part of your life (eg relationships for Venus), intensified by the eclipse.

The eclipsed New Moon is exact at 8.53pm Queensland time AEST – the solar eclipse itself is exact at 8.41pm.  It’s an unusually long eclipse, with the totality lasting 3 minutes 51 secs, which makes the eclipse particularly strong in its effects.  We won’t be able to see it in Queensland – you’ll have to be in northern Canada, Greenland or the North Pole to see the total/annular eclipse.  If you’re in Northern Europe though, you’ll see a partial solar eclipse.

Really pay attention to the intentions you set at this eclipsed New Moon.  Know that they are stronger and more powerful that the intentions you normally set each month.  Remember to set your intentions in the 24 hrs immediately after the New Moon.

Skywatching:  Both Mercury and Venus will reappear as Evening Stars this month, Mercury from mid-May and Venus from about a week later.  Look for them low in the western evening sky just after sunset. Mars is also visible in the west, higher in the sky.  Saturn and Jupiter rise shortly before midnight and by sunrise can be seen high in the sky towards the west.

We have a very intense lunar month coming up! 
This New Moon marks the beginning of the eclipse season, so stay present and be especially mindful throughout this month!
The Full Moon this month is a total lunar eclipse Blood Moon which will be visible in Australia.  As if that wasn’t intense enough, it’s also a SuperMoon, intensifying the energies even further!!!
Also Mercury enters its retro shadow soon after the New Moon, going retro at the end of May – so get on top of all your communications and tie up any loose ends as soon as possible this lunar month!!!

!! WARNING !!  Eclipses demand respect – don’t take any unnecessary risks in eclipse season

*

The New Moon in Taurus on Wed 12 May marks the beginning of the eclipse season, a very intense time when it’s important we stay present and we’re especially mindful.

The eclipse season is the 6-week period around the eclipses – 2 weeks before the first one, 2 weeks between the two eclipses, and then 2 weeks afterwards. This New Moon starts that build-up period to the first eclipse which is the Total Lunar Eclipse on 26 May, more of which later!  An eclipse season is a time to be extra careful, as it’s a time when accidents seem to happen more easily.  It’s really important to stay present and be especially mindful throughout this month!  Take extra care at this time!!!

The invitation from this New Moon in Taurus is to bring a new awareness to our relationship with Mother Earth and our physical world.  It invites us to make a new departure, to begin a new cycle connecting deeply with the land, appreciating the abundance of Nature, acknowledging the sacred beauty of the Earth and embodying this by stepping into our protective role as her guardians.

At a personal level, this New Moon (and this whole lunar month) is an excellent time for some pampering and indulgence!  As an Earth sign, Taurus is patient and grounded, with an appreciation of the finer things in life. Taurus is highly sensuous and has a love of luxury, so feel free to indulge your senses now.

Taurus is associated with security in its many forms – emotional, material and financial – and this need for security (or more accurately, the fear of lack of security) can give rise to the sign’s tendency towards possessiveness and material accumulation.  Use the energies of this lunar month to explore your own security needs and your own relationship with abundance. This is a good time to take stock of where you’re at in terms of your material and financial security, and begin a new cycle in that respect.

If your birthday falls close to this New Moon, within a day either side, you are likely to be strongly affected as it marks a year of new beginnings in your life, particularly with regard to your sense of identity and your purpose in life.

The New Moon falls at 21 degrees Taurus.  If you have points in your birth chart close to this degree (within one degree), expect the part of your life associated with that energy (eg relationships for Venus) to begin a significant new cycle.

The New Moon is exact at 4.59am AEST.  Remember to set your New Moon intentions in the following 24 hrs.

SuperMoon Full Moon in Scorpio  Tues 27 April 2021, exact at 1.31pm Queensland time (AEST) at 7 Scorpio

Skywatching   Mercury and Venus are currently invisible on the far side of the Sun.  By the end of this lunar month they will have reappeared and both will be visible as Evening Stars, low in the western evening sky.   Mars the red planet is visible high in the night sky in the west at sunset.  Saturn and Jupiter are visible high in the morning sky before sunrise.

.

1Aries

The New Moon falls in Aries on Mon 12 April, bringing the opportunity for a bold and exciting new start.  Aries’ natural approach to life is to take action, breaking new ground in a pioneering or even crusading venture, or taking up a cause that’s worth fighting for.

Aries on FireAs a Fire sign, Aries is full of enthusiasm and focused on the future.  Aries tends to act first and think later, hence its reputation for being impulsive, so take a moment to weigh your options before jumping in feet first!

In its positive manifestation, Aries is pioneering, boldly going where no–one has gone before, carving out a new, independent path and leading the way.  Aries tends to be fearless, the kind of leader who says “Follow me!” as they race ahead.  They’re also naturally competitive and like to be first.

When manifesting negatively however, Aries can be impatient, impulsive and aggressive, often with a quick temper.  Mars, the ruler of Aries, was after all the god of War.  Aries can also be very direct, hence its reputation for foot-in-mouth bluntness.

The Goddess Venus and Lord of the Underworld Pluto are in very close contact in this New Moon chart, in a pattern that suggests the potential for abuse of power towards the Feminine, yet also with the possibility of the Feminine rising up, facing the abuse and denigration, and stepping into a new place of female empowerment.  These themes are being played out right now in political circles in Australia and the UK especially, but are a common thread of experience for women everywhere.  With Uranus the Great Awakener moving through Venus-ruled Taurus, women are finally saying enough is enough, demanding an end to the culture that oppresses women so thoughtlessly. Things may come to a head at this New Moon, so stay tuned – the tide is definitely shifting.

If your birthday falls close to this date (within a day either side), this is the beginning of a significant new cycle in your life, particularly with regard to your sense of identity and purpose in life. The influence of Chiron means that this could be a significant new cycle in your own healing, or perhaps you’re at the stage where you can now bring healing into your work in some way.

New MoonThis New Moon falls at 22 degrees Aries.  If you have points in your birth chart close to this degree (within one degree) expect the part of your life associated with that planet (eg relationships for Venus) to begin a significant new cycle.

Wherever you have 22 degrees of Aries 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.

The New Moon is exact at 12.30pm AEST.  Remember to set your New Moon intentions in the following 24 hrs.

March Lunar Phases & Moon Planting Guide ☘️🍃🎋

.

*

.We have the most beautiful, romantic New Moon coming this month, with Venus and Neptune enhancing the yearning for souls to merge into oneness and spiritual ecstasy – whether that’s in your spiritual practices or with a love partner.

For those of you studying Astrology seriously and looking to become qualified, I’ll be running an FAA Calculation Exam prep course starting in June – if you’re interested in joining us, let me know!
.
*
.

The New Moon in Pisces on Sat 13 March is the most beautiful, romantic New Moon with Venus and Neptune closely configured, enhancing the yearning for souls to merge into oneness and spiritual ecstasy – whether that’s in spiritual practices or with a love partner.

A New Moon in Pisces always signifies a renewed focus on spirituality and the desire to transcend our 3D reality. 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 meditation and spiritual practices!

Pisces is also associated with imagination and creativity (through its Neptune rulership), and with Venus and Neptune part of this New Moon line-up, 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, a highly Neptunian experience!

The downside of Pisces however, is illusion and deception, making us more gullible than usual, more prone to being deceived (and deceiving ourselves!).  Be careful of falling under some kind of spell under the influence of this New Moon – especially falling in love and only seeing the beloved through rose-coloured glasses!

The Piscean urge to transcend reality can express negatively as escapism, any kind of escapism – which in its most extreme forms can develop into addictive patterns of behaviour. This New Moon is therefore a great opportunity to begin a new cycle in any escapist tendencies (or even addictions) that you’re aware of – focus on transforming them (maybe sublimating them) into more creative or spiritual pursuits.

The New Moon in Pisces may also usher in a new cycle of compassion and the desire to help others. Just be careful that this doesn’t become an urge to rescue people.  Pisces has a tendency towards self-sacrifice in the service of others, even to the point of martyrdom, so make sure you look after yourself first, otherwise you’ll be in no position to take care of others.  There’s a fine line between helping others and rescuing them, overstepping boundaries which essentially need to be respected and strengthened.  One of the best ways to empower people is to give them the space to make their own decisions, providing the invitation for them to step into that place of self-responsibility and empowerment.

Wherever you have 23 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 8.21pm Queensland time (AEST).

Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.

Aquarius the water-carrier

Aquarius the water-carrier

The New Moon this month is a MEGA New Moon in Aquarius, falling on Fri 12 Feb at 23 Aquarius.  What’s so remarkable about this New Moon is that 6 of the 7 traditional planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn) are all in Aquarius at this time!!!  This is a New Moon that will pack so much Aquarian energy, waking us up to the need to focus on what’s best for humanity at the global collective level.

The New Moon in Aquarius 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 discuss and debate ideas, the more original, inventive and zany the better.  They’re also very rational, able to apply logic well to any situation and keep a detached mindset.  Aquarians are very sociable and tend to be known as the party animals of the zodiac!

The New Moon is exact at 5.05am Queensland time (AEST) which means it will fall the previous day in Europe and the Americas. 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 23 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 YearLike 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 Ox.

🌟 Second chance for New Year’s resolutions 🌟💫

🌟 New Moon in Capricorn 2021 🌟 Second chance for New Year’s resolutions 🌟💫

New Moon in Capricorn: Wed 13 Jan 2021 at 3pm AEST at 23 degrees Capricorn

Full Moon in Leo: Fri 29 Jan 2021 at 5.16am AEST at 9 degrees Leo (the previous day in Europe and the Americas)

Skywatching:  Jupiter and Saturn are visible low in the western evening sky just after sunset – but only for a couple of weeks before they disappear into the light of the Sun.
Mars the red planet is high overhead at sunset.
Venus twinkles brightly in the pre-dawn sky as the Morning Star, gradually lower each morning in the eastern sky until by the end of this lunar month, she will have disappeared into the light of the Sun.

A powerful New Moon falls in Capricorn on Wed 13 Jan.  This is the absolute best time to make your New Year’s resolutions for 2021 as the energy of this Capricorn New Moon gives you the self-discipline and determination to carry out the incremental steps you need to take during the year to achieve your goals.  Pluto is part of this New Moon energy, so any resolutions you set now will be especially powerful.

A New Moon always represents the beginning of a new cycle in some part of your life.  The Capricorn New Moon invites renewed focus on self-discipline, goal-setting, improving time management and introducing more structure into your life – all in the service of moving forwards on your chosen path.  Remember the image of Capricorn the goat, climbing slowly but steadily up the mountain, one step at a time, guaranteed to reach the summit.

mountain goatCapricorn is an Earth sign, grounded, sensible and practical – excellent at dealing with material reality.  The sign is ruled by Saturn, the ultimate taskmaster who sets firm boundaries, exercises self-authority and is cautious. The downside  of Capricorn (every sign has its downside) is the tendency for caution to become fear, leading in some cases to freezing (petrified means turned to stone) so that no action is taken. Saturn can also be a fierce inner critic, sowing self-doubt that can stifle those Capricorn ambitions. Caution is fine, yet make sure you continue to move forwards.  It’s time now to accept full personal responsibility for your life, and to realise that YOU are the only one who can make the necessary changes for your life to move in the direction you want.

Wherever you have Capricorn in your chart is the area of life that will be most strongly affected by this New Moon – for example, if it is in your 6th house, this is an opportunity to bring more self-discipline into your daily routine and health regime; if it falls in the 2nd, this will apply to your finances.  If you are not sure where Capricorn falls in your birth chart, think of the area of your life that could most benefit from some self-discipline right now – you’ll probably tune into it intuitively!

If your birthday is close to this New Moon (within a day either side), this marks the beginning of a significant new cycle in your life in terms of your identity and your sense of purpose.

If 23 degrees Capricorn is strong in your chart, or if any of your planets fall at this degree, a significant new cycle is starting in the part of your life represented by that planet, eg relationships for Venus.  You may well have had a difficult time of it over the last twelve months, as this is almost exactly the degree of the Saturn-Pluto and Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions in Jan 2020, and Pluto is still very close to this degree.  It’s as if the Universe is telling you that finally you can leave the energies of the last year behind and you can at last move forwards.

Remember to create your New Moon intentions (and your Resolutions for 2021) within 24 hours of this New Moon.  The intentions you set now will be particularly powerful because of the conjunction with Pluto.  The New Moon is exact at 3pm Queensland time (AEST).
