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 of February 10th, 2017: Full Moon and Eclipse in Leo

The morning may seem clear of notable astrological  aspects, but don’t let that fool you – today is filled with some pretty powerful alignments, and this morning is simply a build-up of planetary energies in preparation for the cosmic spectacle this afternoon.

The day starts in style with Mercury in Aquarius sextiling Venus in Aries this afternoon, and since this is a planetary aspect its gently supportive effects will be felt throughout the day (part of the aforementioned build-up).  Those of us who made use of the more… affectionate side of all that fiery energy yesterday may well have something to talk about this morning, and the Mercury/Venus sextile helps to make such talks go smoothly, albeit with some spirit.  We are also likely to take a very personal pleasure in our communication with groups at this time, as well as communication in relation to social causes, so if you’ve got a fiery speech ready to persuade people to do the right thing, now’s the time to use it!

This Mercury/Venus sextile also is the base of a focused Yod (the “Finger of God”) along the Nodal Axis, with the apex at the North Node in Virgo and the releasing point at the South Node in Pisces.  This aspect combines the influence of Mercury and Venus to put pressure on the North Node via a pair of inconjuncts between the sextiling planets and the apex, and thus whatever use we make of our communication and affections at this time will draw attention to our karmic paths, whether for good or ill according to our free will.  That pressure may create a certain amount of instability in our efforts toward personal growth, but there is power there as well, to be used judiciously.  We may find ourselves falling back on the things that come most easily to us but don’t teach us anything new in an effort to relieve some of the pressure on the North Node, but now is a time to make that pressure work for us, especially with the rest of the astrological activity this afternoon and evening giving us the courage to do so.

This afternoon also sees a trine between the Moon in Leo and Uranus in Aries, continuing the fast-paced Uranian influence and the proud and expressive emotions and instincts of yesterday united in one powerful force.  Since this is a harmonious aspect, this is a great time to make use of an increased flow of creative ideas in moving ourselves forward in the hopes of staking a claim in our preferred realm, whatever that may be, though technological and forward-thinking endeavors are favored, as well as those which create social change.  Keep in mind that Uranus in aspect with the Moon increases the likelihood of mood fluctuations and sudden changes, but with a favorable aspect like this such changes are much easier to navigate, and may well be welcome distractions.

In the late afternoon and early evening we are treated to the combination of the Full Moon in Leo and a penumbral eclipse, when the Moon is shadowed not by the Earth herself but by the edge of her atmosphere, dimming the Moon’s reflection of the Sun’s light but not darkening it completely.  All Full Moons represent culminating energy, a time when the intentions we set at the New Moon come into their fullness, to be released out into the world during the waning of the Moon. The penumbral eclipse creates an added charge to this process, bringing us to a point of crisis that results in epiphany.  This is a time for breakthroughs, but they won’t be without cost.  Lunar eclipses tend to deal with our relationships, both one-on-one and those with a larger reach, and with the Leo/Aquarius polarity involved here there is an added emphasis on navigating the space between self and other, the personal and the impersonal, the needs of the individual versus the needs of the group.

A Leo Full Moon is a time to work on goals relating to self-expression, the arts, lovers, and children, which we are hoping to bring to fruition over the course of the next two weeks until the New Moon and then with the eclipse in the mix we can extend those goals and work on them within the larger pattern over the course of the next six months until the Solar eclipse in August.  Today’s Leo Moon cycles through harmonious aspects with all three of the outer planets involved in the Triangle of Potential that’s been in effect since the holidays, albeit now slowly drifting out of orb, so the Triangle is once again being activated by our emotions and instincts.  Thus, our goals for the rest of the month and for the next six months are going to work best when they take the themes of the Triangle of Potential into account:  balancing change and social harmony, individual growth and the growth of society, the need for freedom and the hope and luck generated by good relationships and partnerships in particular.  With Saturn being the mediator between Jupiter and Uranus in this balancing act, discipline will be necessary to carry us through, but that discipline does not need to become self-punishing.

In addition, yesterday’s Sun/Uranus sextile is still in effect, and the Sun opposing the Moon (which is what a Full Moon is) in combination with the Sun/Uranus sextile, the Moon/Uranus trine, the Moon/Jupiter sextile following shortly after the eclipse, tomorrow’s Sun/Jupiter trine (which is already being felt today), and the ongoing Jupiter/Uranus opposition all together form a Mystic Rectangle, a combination of polarities between Air and Fire, and Masculine and Feminine energies that requires that we give equal attention to all four bodies in these two oppositions (Sun/Moon, Jupiter/Uranus) and the elemental principles that they invoke, thought and spirit, communication and action, as well as temperaments of the four signs involved, Aquarius/Leo and Libra/Aries.  This is a beautifully optimistic configuration to use in putting our talents to work in connection with the Full Moon and eclipse energies.  Challenging, yes, but deeply beneficial if we make good use of it.  In particular we are being asked to balance our conscious and unconscious awareness, and our social and individual needs.  Tall order!  But a worthy one, and one which the combination of celestial events today make clear is well within our power.

As if all of that wasn’t enough, the Full/Eclipsed Moon in Leo activates a Grand Fire Trine with Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius, further emphasizing themes of revolutionary change backed by discipline and emotional fervor with courageous instincts.  Our spirits are blazing with this energy now, and so long as we don’t let it burn us out we can do amazing things with it, with a steady eye to the long term.    This configuration emphasizes our capacity to both ride and direct the waves of change sweeping through our lives in the next six months, both personally and politically.  There is no better time to get involved!

The Moon in Leo sextiling Jupiter in Libra this evening emphasizes the social aspect of this equation, helping us to see how we can express ourselves fully while still valuing and maintaining social harmony and balancing our needs with the needs of others.  This time sees the likelihood that legal matters will work in our favor and may smooth over our dealings with authorities.  It also increases our courage in social situations, making for a good start to the weekend.

Later tonight the Moon in Leo trines Saturn in Sagittarius, which may turn our mood a bit more serious, but since the trine is the most favorable of aspects that seriousness is likely to work to our advantage and bolster our courage.  We may well impress others with our dedication and loyalty at this time, especially if we have been making good use of today’s mojo in service to our very best goals.  Since this aspect starts a void-of-course period, any bold moves are best to have been begun before this late-night time, leaving the end of the night to socialize, plan, and put the finishing touches on the Full Moon and eclipse intentions that we are sending out into the world, and then to dream on them in the floating, intuitive time that the void-of-course brings.

Astrology of January 28th, 2017: A Higher Cause

Today’s astrological weather takes an upturn, with the Moon in Aquarius making three supportive aspects in the afternoon and evening, and no other notable aspects occurring to disrupt them.  What’s more, all three of these lunar aspects supportively highlight the planets involved in the ongoing Triangle of Potential between Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn, helping us in working through some of the lessons of that configuration in the least painful manner possible.

The morning and early afternoon are quiet in terms of aspects, though the energetic boost to new undertakings from yesterday’s New Moon is still likely to be felt, especially in areas related to social causes, technology, education, and futurism.  Aquarius being inclined to favor the rational over the emotional makes us likely to express what we are feeling in terms of how we think we are feeling rather than getting down in the thick of the actual emotion, which may be just as well given the emotional intensity of a week spent by so many of us waking up in dread of what the daily news will reveal.

This afternoon begins the trio of alignments supporting the Triangle of Potential with the Moon in Aquarius sextiling Uranus in Aries.  This can give our rebellious instincts a boost, and sends us seeking out the new and unusual whether we do so mindfully or not.  Uranus energies can feel disruptive for those of us who don’t normally get enough newness and experimentation in our lives or for those of us who are feeling trapped by our situations.  Luckily this is a sextile, so the contact between the Moon and Uranus here is gentle and harmonious, giving us some curiosity and impetus forward at a pace that we can handle.  Plus, the Aquarian side of the equation enjoys the contact with its transcendental ruler Uranus, and the Aries fire that Uranus currently resides in gets a boost of fuel to its individualist tendencies as a result of mental oxygenation by Aquarian ideas.  All in all, it’s an enlivening pairing.

The energy and excitement that can be generated by the Moon/Uranus pairing gets an outlet tonight when the Moon in Aquarius turns its attention to Jupiter, trining with the Greater Benefic and promoting ease and flow between our knee-jerk reactions and our desire for social harmony.  We will feel instinctively drawn to social situations and feel the need to interact with those with whom we can make progress on the causes and ideals that matter most to us.  We will be more willing to consider the ideas of others, more interested in mediating and working with others toward solutions, and more inclined to seek partnerships that help both our society and us as individuals to evolve.  And if all goes according to cosmic plan those partnerships are the result of the drive toward newness that we felt this afternoon, so that whatever we are planning now doesn’t keep us stuck in the same old rut, nor allowing Jupiter’s magnification of the desire for social harmony to keep us from exploring the new possibilities that pioneering Uranus in Aries has revealed to our Aquarian hearts.

The Moon sextiling Saturn in Sagittarius toward the witching hour gives us the discipline that we need to tie all of this together, aligning Aquarian social instincts with a clear understanding of our limitations and boundaries.  Saturn tends to lend a serious note to whatever he influences, so our socially-conscious instincts are not likely to go off half-cocked under this aspect, nor are our intentions frivolous.  This is a good aspect for carefully exploring our limits and seeing what we actually can and can’t do to improve our situation and that of others in our social circles.  Tonight’s journey of the Moon in relationship with the Triangle of Potential gives us an instinctual framework for using our discipline and hard-won experience to master the balancing act between the Uranian desire for change and Jupiter’s desire to keep the faith.  Tonight our social networks and partnerships can be the perfect vehicle for using our individual gifts toward a higher cause.

Astrology of January 13th, 2017: Interlude

Fire Flowers

After yesterday’s lively assortment of aspects, there are no new aspects or configurations today, which may feel like a welcome break after all we’ve been experiencing lately.  There is the ongoing Jupiter/Saturn/Uranus Triangle of Potential, which asks us to balance the needs for freedom of entire generations of individuals with the desire for social harmony, yet gives us the discipline to do so, while keeping us mindful of our limitations.  And there is also the afterglow of yesterday’s Venus/Neptune conjunction, which includes feelings of sympathy, but which can also cloud our judgement and therefore require that we defer important decisions until later.  

There is also an ongoing sextile between the Sun and Chiron that taps into that Triangle of Potential in some challenging ways, as the Sun continues to square Jupiter (and to a lesser extent Uranus) and Chiron continues to square Saturn.  Though these dynamics are not exact, their influences still linger.  This is a good time to enjoy the creative, expressive, and proud feelings and instincts of the Leo Moon as a stabilizing counterpoint to the crackling energy of Uranus growing insistently with the air of Jupiterian awareness feeding it, even as the memory and residual warmth of yesterday’s Moon trining first Uranus then Saturn in fire signs continues to keep our spirits alight in the cold of winter.

Astrology of January 1st, 2017: Mentally Stimulating

batik-3-detail-2-light

Happy New Year!

Many of us may still be feeling the effects of indulgence resulting from last night’s Mars/Neptune conjunction, but the heavens have been fairly kindly this morning via three favorable aspects from the Moon in Aquarius, first in a supportive sextile to Uranus in Aries, then trined to Jupiter in Libra, and finally sextile to Saturn in Sagittarius, all in quick succession due to the continuing Triangle of Potential formed between these three outer planets in which the normally stern influence of Saturn becomes the disciplined mediator between Jupiter and Uranus calling attention to the balancing act between the desire for social harmony and the individually-fueled need for change.  Saturn here helps to pace these two, who left to their own devices would rush headlong into sudden change and blow both that desire for change and the results all out of proportion.  The Moon aspecting each of these three players brings the opportunities inherent in this configuration into focus through our emotions and instincts, and gives us great potential for diving into our New Year’s resolutions as soon as last night’s Mars/Neptune blurriness wears off (likely not until tomorrow…).

The afternoon and evening are fairly quiet in astrological terms until one minute before the witching hour Pacific Time, when the Moon conjuncts Venus in Aquarius, beginning a short void-of-course period before entering Pisces in the wee hours of tomorrow morning.  This is a great time to indulge in activities that are mentally stimulating but otherwise not too taxing.  Sounds like the perfect night to curl up with a good book.  🙂
