Uranus goes retro

Uranus goes retrograde on Sun 16 Aug 2020 (just after midnight AEST, effectively Sat night) at 10 Taurus.  This gives you the opportunity to review your life from a perspective of increased awareness, especially any innovation you may have introduced in the last 7 months. The house that Uranus is currently transiting (taking about 7 years on average to travel through a house) will be the area of your life currently under this kind of review.

If your birthday is close to 30 April, you could be experiencing the negative side of Uranus which is destabilization and chaos – transform this by recognising an opportunity to bring more awareness into your life and be more authentically yourself, a classic time for re-inventing yourself.  Uranus is retrograde for 5 months until 14 Jan 2021 when it goes direct again at 6 Taurus.

If you are born around 30 April, or have 10 degrees Taurus strong in your chart, this Uranus standstill is likely to affect you deeply – a time to reflect on your own truth and integrity, and a great cosmic opportunity to reinvent yourself.  It’s also a time to wake up to something in your life, you’ll know best what that is.  The Universe is saying that you need to bring more awareness to this aspect of your life and make significant changes there – otherwise the Universe has a way of forcing these changes upon you!

June solstice 2020

EquinoxSolsticeThe June Solstice is when the Sun reaches its northernmost position overhead at the Tropic of Cancer (remember that from geography in primary school?). Guess what, the Tropic of Cancer takes its name from Astrology, from the fact that the Sun moves into the tropical zodiac sign of Cancer on this day.

The word ‘solstice’ comes from Latin meaning ‘the Sun stands still’. If you follow the position of sunrise along the horizon during the year, you’ll notice it moves with the seasons. At the solstices in June and December, the Sun reaches its furthest point in one direction before returning towards the centre point again. Many ancient sacred sites were aligned with the sun’s position at the solstice, creating a magical effect at the solstice sunrise, including standing stone circles such as Stonehenge in England and the Newgrange monument in Ireland.

In the southern hemisphere, the June Solstice is the shortest day of the year and the longest night, traditional midwinter time. You’ll notice this more the further south you go, where the days will get very short indeed. After the solstice, the days start to lengthen again and the world returns from the darkness of winter, moving towards the rebirth of spring.

In the northern hemisphere the seasons are reversed, and so the June Solstice is of course the Summer Solstice, the traditional midsummer time, the longest day and the shortest night, a time of magic when the veil between the worlds was very thin, as shown in Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.  Once past midsummer, the days start to shorten as the northern hemisphere moves towards autumn.

The solstice is the real turning point of the year.  Once past the solstice, we move towards the September Equinox where day and night are equal once more.  The solstice was always celebrated in ancient times, often with bonfires and dancing.  Plants especially respond to the change in the length of days, often only germinating either before or after the solstice.  If we were more in tune with Nature, ie without artificial light, we’d respond a lot more obviously too!

The solstice is exact on Sun 21 June 2020 at 7.43am Queensland time (AEST) (the previous day in Europe and the Americas).  The solstice falls just before the solar eclipse (see next post), which falls on the same day in Australia at 4.41pm AEST.  The solstice eclipse marks the beginning of our next lunar month.

Collective Spiritual Alignment Shifts

3GeminiWe have a shift in our collective spiritual alignment this lunar month as the Nodal axis moves into Gemini-Sagittarius on Tues 5 May. 

The North Node denotes our spiritual path, what we need to develop and align with for us to move forwards on our spiritual journey, while the South Node indicates where we have talents, yet because this is such a comfort zone for us, this is also where we can be undermined by self-sabotage. 

The Nodes falling in Gemini-Sagittarius suggest that collectively, we need to develop our ability to examine hard facts, gathering information that is trustworthy and verifiable, and then apply strict logic for the next 18 months.  The sign of Gemini is famous for its curiosity, so along with examining the facts, I’d say we need to develop a healthy curiosity that enables us to think outside the square, a kind of lateral thinking that enables us to imagine other possible scenarios

What can undermine us in this period is being gullible and over-trusting, believing something simply through trust or instinct, rather than checking out the facts. If you look at this in the context of “fake news” (which has an epidemic all of its own these days), you’ll see that more than ever now, we need to learn discernment and apply the rules of logic, rather than operating on blind trust. Some creative lateral thinking would no doubt pay off too!

New Moon in Aquarius 2020 – Happy Chinese New Year!

Aquarius the water-carrier

New Moon in Aquarius   Sat 25 Jan 2020, exact at 7.41am Queensland time (AEST) at 4 degrees Aquarius (the previous day in Europe & the Americas)

Full Moon in Leo   Sun 9 Feb 2020, exact at 5.33pm Queensland time (AEST) at 20 degrees Leo

..

Skywatching   Venus can be seen as the Evening Star twinkling in the western sky after sunset.  If you have a clear view of the western horizon, you’ll also be able to see Mercury low in the western sky just after sunset, especially from the beginning of Feb for a few weeks.  Mars is a reddish Morning Star in the east before sunrise, quite high now, with Jupiter and Saturn below Mars.

..

The New Moon in Aquarius on Sat 25 Jan 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 7.04am 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 4 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 New Moon also brings in the Chinese New Year Like many traditional cultures, the Chinese New Year is based on the lunar calendar, and this New Moon marks the beginning of the Chinese Lunar Year of the Metal Rat.

New Moon in Gemini 2019

3GeminiNew Moon in Gemini  Mon 3 June 2019, exact at 8.01pm Queensland time (AEST) at 12 degrees Gemini

Full Moon in Sagittarius  Mon 17 June 2019, exact at 6.31pm Queensland time (AEST) at 25 degrees Sagittarius 

Skywatching  Venus rises as a Morning Star in the east before sunrise at the beginning of this lunar month, but this will be the last month she’s visible as a Morning Star.  Jupiter rises in the east at sunset, followed a few hours later by Saturn.

 

The New Moon falls in Gemini on Mon 3 June, signalling the opportunity to begin a new cycle in the way we communicate, network and exchange ideas.  

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 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 New Moon, within a day either side, this marks a year of significant new beginnings in your life, particularly with regard to your identity and your sense of purpose in life.

The New Moon falls at 12 degrees Gemini.  If you have points in your birth chart close to this degree (within one degree) you can expect to begin a new cycle in that part of your life (eg relationships for Venus). 

The New Moon is exact at 8.02pm AEST.  Remember to set your New Moon intentions in the following 24 hrs. 

The lovers Venus and Mars are quietly in harmony at the beginning of this lunar month with Venus in sensuous Taurus and Mars in emotional Cancer.  Things change quite dramatically on Sun 9 June when Venus moves into outgoing social-butterfly Gemini, needing to be out and socialising, while Mars prefers to stay home.  The lovers are likely to irritate each other now as they’re in signs that have nothing in common.

Skywatching: Jupiter and Venus can be seen as Morning Stars in the east before sunrise, moving further apart as the month progresses, Jupiter the higher of the two.  Saturn is also visible lower in the pre-dawn sky towards the horizon.  In the evening, after sunset, the red planet Mars can be seen in the western sky.

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!!

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.
