Astrology Update, April 29th, 2018, Full Moon in Scorpio (Pink Moon): Emotional Power

Today’s Full Moon in Scorpio brings into bloom the seeds of intention sown at the New Moon in Aries two weeks ago. The fiery and impetuous ambition of Aries is With the Sun in Taurus trining Saturn today, this creates a Triangle of Potential with the Full Moon that heightens awareness of our deepest emotions on a remarkably practical level, and asks us to commit to the long-term process of uncovering our inner mysteries and applying the insights gained to our ongoing journey of growth and achievement in the material world.

With both Scorpio’s classical ruler Mars and Scorpio’s transcendental ruler Pluto conjunct in Saturn’s home sign of Capricorn, the intensity of this Full Moon is both amplified and grounded. We may find ourselves coming face-to-face with our obsessions and compulsions in ways we never have before, gaining a new understanding of just what drives us, and how we can make use of the hitherto hidden forces within us in pursuit of our dearest goals.

With this Moon squaring the North Node in Leo, the depth of our feelings now can be of profound service to our souls’ growth, if we are willing to face the fears and insecurities that Saturn sextile the Moon dredges up regarding our path in the material world. Because that sextile and the trine between Saturn and the Sun are both harmonious and involving steadying Earth signs, we are better equipped to examine and understand even our most complex and troubling feelings within these realms.

Jupiter in Scorpio is still sextile to the Pluto/Mars conjunction, so the power and drive that we have at our disposal now is a force to be reckoned with, and our sense of faith, optimism, and purpose are stregthened now. Though we are all-too-often afraid of our own power, now we find ourselves in the best possible position to embrace our inner strength and all of the emotional complexity within us, and shape our world in ways we never previously dared to imagine.

Astrology Update, April 27th, 2017: Life of the Party

Today started with the Moon in Taurus trining Pluto in Capricorn in the wee hours of the morning, increasing our emotional perceptiveness and intensity.  Those of us still awake or just waking up at that hour were not likely to be interested in superficial experiences and may have found ourselves drawn into situations of complexity and power that called on us to have greater emotional awareness and feel very deeply.  Those of us still sleeping may have had unusually vivid and intricate dreams, well worth taking note of in waking hours for the secrets of our inner world that they could reveal.

The skies have been quiet since then until this afternoon’s sextile from the Moon in Taurus to Chiron in Pisces, creating a gentle harmony between our grounded emotions and the wisdom we gain from our limitations and injuries.  This afternoon is a good time to connect with those in whom we can be vulnerable and confide about the areas of life where we struggle, and if we are not feeling particularly in need of a sympathetic ear we may find ourselves in the position of the voice of experience helping to bolster the spirits of others in need.

Tonight the Moon sextiles Venus in Pisces, creating feelings of conviviality that gently steer us to gather with our friends and loved ones and enjoy the richness of our close connections.  We are likely to enjoy entertaining others in our homes tonight, as the Taurus Moon combines forces with this sign’s ruler to make us particularly house-proud now, delighting in the environments we create and sharing them with others.  This is a good time for love relationships, old and new, a time to mend relationships that have been under duress, as we can gently and lovingly communicate our feelings under this aspect and smooth over rough edges.

This aspect begins a very short void-of-course period lasting only a few minutes before the Moon enters Gemini and whatever festivities we are enjoying for the night get a boost of Gemini liveliness and charm.  Our emotions and instincts under a Gemini Moon are driven more by intellect than by sentimentality, and we are more curious, more inventive, and more communicative as a result.  Since Gemini is ruled by Mercury, quickness prevails during this transit and our moods and responses are likely to turn on a dime.  We become more impressionable under this Moon, and more free-spirited, seeking action and stimulation and thriving on change.  On the downside, our decisiveness is likely to be impaired during this time, as we want to know all the options and are keenly aware that there is always more to know, more to explore, and we are likely to resent being pinned down and expected to make a singular choice.  That said, our openness to new experiences now makes us more adventurous and fun-loving, and the Moon’s entry into this sign so soon after the Moon/Venus sextile could make for a very enjoyable night.

That said, late tonight the Moon in Gemini squares the North Node in Virgo, reminding us that not all is fun and games, and some of our adventures could lead us off the the path of our souls’ preferred mode of growth.  It’s all-too-easy to gloss over important details when we’re moving so fast, or to turn to hyperbole in place of truth.  We may find ourselves challenged to keep from losing ourselves in frivolity and superficiality, and would do well not to stray into manipulative territory in our interactions with others.  Being the life of the party is all well and good so long as we remain genuine.

Astrology Update, April 14th, 2017: Truth in the Pattern

Today started with the Moon void-of-course in Scorpio, adrift in the dark, watery, receptive state of the feminine unconscious, absorbing the last of the lessons of this lunar transit before the Moon entered Sagittarius in the early morning hours.  

The Moon in Sagittarius marks a more emotionally active and expansive period, when our instincts are more generous and our immediate responses more philosophical and broad-minded.  Our tempers may be shorter now, our moods more volatile, but we are also more forgiving and adaptable, more interested in different points of view.  During this time we may find ourselves requiring more space, unconsciously still resonating with the urge toward freedom ignited in us with last night’s Sun/Uranus conjunction.  We are less likely to hide our truth now, speaking more forthrightly and acting more boldly, and we are far less reserved, but we also respond with more lightness than during the Moon’s Scorpio transit – our emotions are brighter and more mobile now, and our instinctive reactions less pointed.

This morning saw the Moon in Sagittarius squaring the North Node in Virgo, helping us to learn how the details we must attend to in fulfilling our souls’ purpose live up to our ideals, and where they fall short.  Any health challenges that we are experiencing may affect our ability to learn and connect on higher levels, or may limit the distance we can traverse in our pursuit of learning.  New skills may take longer to acquire than previously anticipated, or require more steps and a broader viewpoint.  We may want to take the longer view but get bogged down in details and process, but may also gain valuable insight about our relationship with details versus the bigger picture.

The skies are relatively quiet through the midday and afternoon, with the lone aspect of the evening being the conjunction of the Moon in Sagittarius with Black Moon Lilith, bringing two representatives of the unconscious feminine together as a fiery bookend to the day’s unconscious feminine start in the watery Scorpio void-of-course.  When these two get together the unconscious exerts a greater force on our lives, yet also has a greater potential for unconscious wisdom to become conscious, as Black Moon Lilith traverses the space between the Moon and the Sun, the unconscious and the conscious.  The experiences that we give ourselves most wholly to during this time will be those that have the best potential to yield insights from the unconscious to inform, stimulate, and expand our conscious selves.  This is a passionate conjunction, an extra sense of aliveness in what we do and how we feel, a vitality that can help us more forward into the larger pattern.

Astrology Update, March 31st, 2017: Curious Gardens

Today started with the Moon void-of-course in Taurus for many hours, so this was not a morning for rushing out of the gate or embarking on any bold new initiatives.  Not that such a course was likely with the Moon in slow and steady Taurus – chances are that we were more inclined to roll over and stay in bed for a while longer than usual.  Since the early morning hours also saw the Moon sextiling Chiron in Pisces, we may have found ourselves in a more dreamy state anyway, nursing old wounds and finding ways to comfort ourselves and work through our sensitivities without a whole lot of physical movement.  Chances are that more than a few of us hit the snooze button a couple extra times in the process.

Late this morning the Moon entered Gemini, turning our patient and practical Taurean instincts into something much more quick-moving and much less patient.  Curious, inventive Gemini sets our instincts and emotions on a faster track, eager to see and do and explore and learn, skimming the surfaces of all of the shiny things like a dragonfly.  This is a mental sign, ruled by Mercury, so we’re not so interested in being emotive; though we are much more likely to talk about our emotions with the Moon in this placement, chances are that we do so from the standpoint of theory rather than practice.  This is not a time for expecting ourselves to feel deeply or have long heartfelt talks, but rather a time for flirting, testing, tasting, seeing what gets us where.  This is a time for quick assessment of things we might like to revisit later.  It’s a time for networking, communicating, and experimenting, and those of us working in sales, media, entertainment, or in scientific fields are likely to benefit.

Toward mid-day Mercury entered Taurus, so the even as our emotions and instincts are speeding up with Gemini, the ruler of that sign is slowing down and becoming more earthy, grounded, and practical.  This makes for an interesting balancing effect, keeping the Moon and our emotions from getting dosed with too much flightiness as our thoughts are steadying themselves after all of the action-orientation that Mercury had in Aries.  The ideas that we wanted to go racing after in Aries now have the perseverance of Taurus to keep them going, and the practical capacity for manifestation in the real world.  Our thoughts and communication now are oriented toward what is real, what we can see and touch.  Because Taurus is ruled by Venus, we are also likely to be most concerned with what we value, as well as what and whom we have affection for and take pleasure in.  While our emotions are becoming more light-hearted and desiring fun, our thoughts are becoming more serious, though also more inclined toward hedonism.  Taurus is deeply concerned with material pleasures and comforts, so chances are that we will be thinking and communicating more about what will gain us those pleasures and comforts, but then we will want to get a chance to enjoy them, especially with the Moon in Gemini egging us on to try things out!  This is not a time for self-denial, unless it’s in the name of something we want far more than some temporary pleasure, or that pleasure requires too much movement and effort to get to it.  Though our emotions are highly changeable under Gemini, our thoughts under Taurus are not, and we may get into some mental ruts during this time.  However, we are also likely to have a highly developed aesthetic sense now, appreciating art and beauty more during this time.

In keeping with the connection between the Moon in Gemini and Mercury in Taurus, soon after Mercury entered Taurus the Moon in Gemini sextiled Taurus’ ruler Venus retrograde in Aries, and the fire of our affections got refueled by the airy fun of Gemini.  Venus retrograde may be reconsidering how we connect with others now, but with the support of communicative and responsive Gemini we may have seen some flirtatious back-and-forth early this afternoon, particularly via text or Snapchat, since Gemini favors communication via technology, especially in the pursuit of romance.  Venus’ warmth has coloured our emotions this afternoon as well, giving a more kindly and pleasurable feeling to our day.

This afternoon the Moon in Gemini squares the North Node in Virgo, challenging the process of our souls’ perfection through our chatty and curious instincts.  Both Gemini and Virgo are mutable signs, flexible and adaptable, and both are ruled by Mercury, so on an intellectual level at least these two get along.  But Gemini is an air sign, with ideas that move and change and are dropped just as easily as they are picked up, whereas Virgo is earthy, practical, concerned with the details that lead to growth, and far more patient than Gemini, but also far more critical.  Gemini operates more in the realm of fantastic possibility, whereas Virgo operates more in the realm of realistic probability.  On the plus side, the North Node tends to respond better to challenges than planets and luminaries do, as challenges promote growth and the North Node is all about growth, especially in Virgo.  This afternoon and evening then are a time for learning how to navigate this space between possibility and probability, fun exploration and instructive process, in pursuit of our souls’ path and our purpose in this life.

Astrology Update, March 18th, 2017: Companionable Thoughts

Today’s astrological activity started with an early-morning square from the Moon in Sagittarius to the North Node in Virgo, pitting our fun-loving emotions and instincts against our karmic path.  We are feeling broad-minded and philosophical under the Sagittarian Moon but our souls are still demanding that we pay attention to the details that are going to get us the experiences and skills we need to fulfill our soul’s purpose, and this morning the disparity between what we feel and what we need may have come to a head.  Of course, since this was a lunar aspect it was short-lived, and therefore more part of the process of refining and course-correcting than anything likely to stimulate major change, especially since those of us in the Western Hemisphere were probably still sleep at that hour.  Even so, it is worth noting whatever dreams we may have woken up with this morning, as they could yield clues to resolving this conflict.  

A short while later the Moon in Sagittarius conjuncted Black Moon Lilith, still early enough in the morning that most of us were likely asleep, and increasing the likelihood of us gaining wisdom through our dreams regarding our religious and philosophical beliefs and how they influence our emotions and instinctual reactions, especially since Black Moon Lilith aids us in bringing unconscious wisdom closer to consciousness.

The big astrological news of the day was the conjunction between Mercury and Venus retrograde in Aries, bringing our thoughts and communication to the same place that Venus is currently mulling over, namely how we connect with others which being true to our own identities and valuing our sense of self.  Our communication is likely to be more affectionate today, as well as more enjoyable, though still a bit self-absorbed.  We are more mindful of our connections with others now, and of how what we say expresses our values and feelings toward others.  Our thoughts and communications today are more likely to be concerned with what we find pleasurable and with building and maintaining connection, though that doesn’t automatically mean that we will be pulling others toward us.  In fact, what we say may well be more concerned with maintaining our sense of freedom and individuality.  We may try to express ourselves in new ways, or seek change in how we think about and communicate in our relationships.  We may find ourselves being simultaneously more active and more introspective, more interested in communicating and connecting through shared activities than through words, or focusing on how actions and activities affect our relationships.

The Moon in Sagittarius reinforced these considerations through trines this afternoon, first to Venus and then to Mercury, bringing our emotions to bear on our interpersonal communications.  Our thoughts and feelings today have been working together to assess our interactions and determine what is truly pleasurable and valuable to us, and where our affections really lie.  And with two fire signs in the mix getting this much emphasis, these aspects most likely didn’t lead to quiet contemplation, but rather active exploration.  Movement and action are what are needed to process these thoughts and feelings tonight.

Tonight the Moon in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces, bringing us back around to confronting our escapist tendencies and addictive behaviors, especially when our more fun-loving side bumps up against our sensitivities and compassion for the state of others in a turbulent and wounded world.  All of today’s interactions with others and trying to determine what works best for ourselves while still maintaining the connections we need may well have led us to some uncomfortable feelings in relation to the larger picture and humanity as a whole, and we may well feel like burying our heads in the sand at the end of it all.  Like all transcendental planets, Neptune changes whatever it touches from the ground up, so our emotions that have gotten all revved-up with fiery possibilities and expanded philosophical horizons are now being touched by more universal forces that can turn what seemed clear before into a muddle of confusion.  Our feelings may suddenly turn wounded without us really understanding why.  Or we may become painfully aware of the impermanence in our lives and what we have to let go of in order to have our heart’s desire, and it may seem overwhelming.  Whatever the case, we need to have compassion for ourselves and others now, and recognize that tonight’s confusion doesn’t have to result in avoidance or falling back on self-destructive patterns.  The path ahead may seem illusory, but what is clouding our vision is only temporary, and we may still gain some illumination through the process, however uncertain it seems now.
