The Full Moon in 21 degrees Libra on April 11th, 2017 is opposite the Sun in 21 degrees Aries, self (Aries) vs. other (Libra). With the Moon conjunct Jupiter in 17 degrees Libra, we want to connect with loved ones, and share our insights, hardships and breakthroughs. The Sun, conjunct Uranus in 24 degrees Aries, however, opposite Jupiter (retrograde), our emotions are erratic and unpredictable, and when fear arises, outbursts of anger or inflated egos can follow.
Venus is currently retrograde and turns direct April 15th. This is a time of inner reflection. What do you love? Why do you love it? Where do you want to focus your love? With Jupiter also retrograde until June 10th, new career paths are opening up for us, along with new areas of study. What do you love to learn? What gifts do you have to share with others?
Saturn goes retrograde April 6th and stays there until August 26th. Bad patterns of behavior, negative attachments to outcomes or people, ancient fears you thought you were done with, are all arising for you to view. Saturn is ruthless and when it turns retrograde, it can seem like one horrible thing after another keeps happening! The truth is that what’s occurring isn’t “good” or “bad.” Only the mind makes it so, and oh boy does the mind want to make it so! It can be extremely inviting to analyze WHY certain things are occurring, but it won’t actually make your pain go away. Trying to solve your problems through the vehicle of thinking only STOPS YOU FROM FEELING what you are meant to feel for the evolution of your soul!
The solution? Stop trying to solve your “problem” and realize there isn’t one, and there has never been one. Breathe deeply and re-align with your soul, with the Creator. Trust that what the universe is presenting you with is for your Highest Benefit. Say YES! Say THANK YOU to EVERYTHING that arises and watch how quickly your “problems” vanish. When Saturn turns direct once again, if you’ve chosen to remain present and face your fears, you’ll reawaken with a higher level of maturity and awareness.
The unknown can be scary, but only to the mind that wants to understand what it simply cannot! EMBRACE the magic of the unknown, even though it can be terrifying at times. The fear will pass, and in place of it, you will rise anew. When you venture into the present, into the unknown, you are no longer able to hold onto any story of who you are, who you were, or who you’re meant to be, and that’s OKAY!
It’s OKAY not to know! It’s okay to let go. *phew*
Mercury goes retrograde April 10th and stays there until May 4th. Use this time to take a break from your mind! In sensual Taurus, this is the perfect time to relax, take long bubble baths, and float off into la la land. The most wonderful ideas always come when we’re peaceful!
Pluto turns retrograde on April 21st and remains there until September 29th! Expect even more inner reflection and a total re-route of your soul path. What you previously thought you “came to Earth to do,” is going to change. This may be inspired by something painful, such as a death, or a breakup, as Pluto transforms through the path of destruction.
Back to the Full Moon! Moon and Sun square Pluto in 19 degrees Capricorn: While the harmonious Libra Moon allows us to connect to others and actually listen to them, with it square Pluto, it’s easy to fall into intense power struggles and fixed opinions. If you can’t get your way, maybe you aren’t meant to! Go for a walk and blow off some steam. Re-centre yourself in nature and remind yourself of what’s truly important!
Venus in 27 degrees Pisces, retrograde, we’re extra sensitive in relationships of all kinds now. Even more so with Venus square Saturn in 27 degrees Sagittarius. Old fears from previous relationships are arising. Are we truly worthy of love? Will he/she leave me? Is this really worth it? Maybe I should hold back…
The solution? Dive in head first 100%, especially in romantic relationships. If you give it your all, and it still doesn’t work, at least you can leave with a clear conscious with no regrets.
Mars in 22 degrees Taurus invited us to be sensual and slow down. Mars trine Pluto gives us the determination to succeed. The thing is, the timing isn’t quite right yet for everyone with Jupiter and Uranus square Pluto, and with all the retrograde action. Less is more right now as we learn the lessons we need to in order to grow. Surrender is key.
The saving grace amidst all the confusion we’re facing is the Moon conjunct the fixed star Spica.
Taken from www.astrologyking.com:
“ gives success, honor, wealth and love. Comfortable and secure living conditions always seem to be provided for. It also gives psychic awareness, androgynous qualities and interest in spirituality and religion. Can transmute above average sexual energy into artistic, creative and spiritual work. This favors scientists, occultists, writers, artist-painters, sculptors and musicians.” Happy Full Moon!
The Full Moon in 22 degrees Virgo is opposite the Sun in 22 degrees Pisces. With the Sun conjunct Mercury in 27 degrees Pisces, it may be very tempting to get lost in your fantasies, especially surrounding your ego. Use the logical Moon in Virgo square Saturn in 27 degrees Sagittarius to maintain your connection to reality.
The Moon and Sun form an Irritation Rectangle with Jupiter in 21 degrees Libra opposite Uranus in 22 degrees Aries. Jupiter opposite Uranus sends us electric insights from Higher Dimensions, which bring us extreme tension unless we share! Ask yourself, “How can I offer my unique perspective to the world to benefit all souls?” Whatever Source is blessing you with now, you are meant to share! We only experience what we truly are, LOVE, when we offer that love freely to the world!
Jupiter opposite Uranus makes us crave freedom. If you find yourself wanting more, or clinging to an imaginary future, stop! Attaching to outcomes, or wanting to see, hear, or taste certain things will always bring suffering. An enlightened master realizes that attaching to the senses leads to suffering. Focus on sending love to what you have now and realize deeply that the situation you are in now is exactly where you are meant to be. Allow Source Consciousness to move through you, healing and transforming your energy, cellular memory, and DNA. If you have the courage to send love ANYWAY, you will be rewarded with a greater perspective. If you can see through the illusion of separation, and realize that EVERYTHING is the same and everything deserves the same love, you will move gracefully into enlightenment, which is your natural state of being.
The Irritation Rectangle brings up tension within relationships and the urge to attack verbally, to force our new perspective on our partners and friends. With the Moon square Saturn as well, we may feel that we have all the answers in any given situation. With Mercury also square Saturn, our stubbornness can turn into dogma.
Take a moment on the Full Moon to release from your mind entirely. You may be surprised to discover that the answers you previously thought were the ultimate truth were only pointing you in the direction of something greater that doesn’t require constant reaffirmation. With Pluto square both Uranus and Jupiter, the lessons we are being presented with right now are overwhelming and physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritual draining at times. Breathe through the uncomfortable sensations and don’t analyze your situation until the alchemical process occurring within you has reached completion.
Relax into not knowing. Relax into sitting with yourself alone. If any tension arises, send it love and so0n it will dissipate. Saturn trine Mars in 1 degree Taurus and trine Uranus is reminding you how powerful it is to FEEL alive in your body. Remember that your true wealth is always in your health. Sit in meditation and invite qi into your form. Practice yoga, dance, MOVE your body in whatever way feels comfortable and release toxic energy. Invite in those Higher Dimensional energies that are SO accessible right now. Get inspired and share your brilliance with the world!
Pluto in 19 degrees Capricorn is trine the Moon and sextile the Sun. If you have the courage to BE with yourself and take 100% responsibility for your actions, an alchemical process will unfold from within you. Your psychic intuition is strong right now, but emotions may also be intense. The inner tension you feel is transforming you on a soul level, and affecting everyone around you. Use this Moon to rebirth yourself anew. Forgive yourself for any awkwardness experienced because of the Eclipses and remain present. Focus on maintaining your health and state of grace and you will magnetically attract into your life what is best for your soul.
Asteroids and Fixed Stars:
The Moon is conjunct the fixed star Denebola, the Tail of the Lion, in the constellation Leo. Denebola has the nature of Venus and Saturn, the Saturn character dominating when the tail is pulled. If you feel provoked in any way or feel your pain body being triggered by the energies present this Full Moon, you may feel the instant desire to lash out at those around you. This can lead to humiliation, anger and intense discord within relationships.
Realize that your pain is NOT yours, only passing. Pain only arises to lead us back to our own innocent nature. Even growing pains lead us back into alignment with what we are, which is always peaceful and loving.
Focus on maintaining the strong qualities of Saturn: strength, maturity, grace and patience. The Venus aspect can bring vanity or cockiness, but also: self-control, courage, and the feeling of safety.
The asteroid Pallas Athena is conjunct the Sun in 23 degrees Pisces, coupled with Chiron in 24 degrees. Pallas Athena rules courage, wisdom, warfare, problem-solving and creative intelligence. She seeks to find truth before taking defensive action, but won’t hesitate to strike if provoked. Wherever you have Pisces in your chart right now, you are being provoked in order to heal. Realize that what you are experiencing is occurring for the Highest Benefit of your Soul. Don’t rationalize to find the truth in your situation. Sit with your pain and allow it to directly inform you why it’s there.
Have a Happy Full Moon!
The Full Moon in 22 degrees Cancer occurring on Jan. 12th, 2017 is opposite the Sun in 22 degrees Capricorn. Pluto in 17 degrees Capricorn is conjunct the Sun square Uranus in 20 degrees Aries, making our egos much more stubborn than usual. We desire freedom but hesitate to take action for fear of damaging our egos. While the Moon is asking us to flow with life, to express our fears and joys without restraint, we’re afraid to open up fully. If we do let go, however, the pressure of Pluto will lead us down an inexorable path of fate, creating an unalterable change within our Beings that will enable us to feel more deeply for ourselves and the world. With Jupiter in 22 degrees Libra and Uranus both square the Moon, we have a Grand Cross on our hands here that is bringing up quite a bit of tension.
Jupiter square Uranus: The desires to feed our egos and achieve solely for our small selves will be challenged by the world which we see. Can we continue to sit and do nothing for those who are suffering simply because we’re spiritual and “it’s all a part of the Divine Plan?”
Jupiter in Libra has shown us too many options for us to handle with grace. Thankfully, now with Mercury in 29 degrees Sagittarius beside Saturn in 22 degrees Sagittarius, we’re beginning to put all the puzzles pieces together to form a picture. We see that in order to fully serve ourselves we must serve the whole. To find true completion, we must offer our gifts to the world without want for anything in return. Our minds have been set free once again, after a ruthless Mercury retrograde, and once more we see that we are blessed beyond measure. With the awareness of our blessings, the choice to serve others becomes effortless and obvious.
Wise old man, Saturn, will be the one we turn to this Moon for the answers. Saturn trine Uranus is enabling us to do more, see more, branch out and do things we’ve been too afraid to try before. But we’re approaching these new ventures with caution and calculation. Jupiter sextile Saturn: We see that we must use our God given gifts to help others live happy and healthy lives. Indeed, we are all servants of the Divine.
Moon trine and Mars and Sun sextile Mars in 18 degrees Pisces: We are reminded that less is more right now. Trying to push against an oncoming current is futile. Better to let go and flow downstream.
Venus in 9 degrees Pisces conjunct Neptune in 10 degrees Pisces and Mars: This is still very much a time to dream and allow your mind to wander to far off lands. What is it that you would love to create above all else? Use your powerful visions and ability to look into the unseen realms right now to bring your deepest fantasies to life. If you’re feeling extra sensitivity within romantic relationships, talk about it. There’s a good chance that your partner is feeling the same and may just be too scared to open up. With Venus and Mars conjunct, this is a romantic time to connect on a soul level.
With all the planets direct until Jupiter turns retrograde on February 6th, this is a powerful time to start new projects, but with the Piscean energy still lingering, don’t rush into anything! If you push too hard right now, your efforts will come crashing down hard on you.
Remember, if things get too tense during this Moon, take a break to do something out of the ordinary. Cancer, though extremely emotional at times, is also hilarious when they wake up to their emotional outbursts. Never take anything personally and please never take yourself or this life too seriously! God bless!
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in 22 degrees Leo will be opposite the Sun in 22 degrees Aquarius, the axis of creation, excitement, adventure, service, innovation.
Moon sextile Jupiter in 23 degrees Libra and Sun trine Jupiter: Old relationships will be renewed and revitalized. You may notice things about your partner that previously were unbeknownst to you. Subtle details about their personality will be intensely intriguing. Graced with new eyes and infinitely inspired by the world around you, expect to form new bonds with others. New friendships formed now may last a lifetime.
Moon trine Saturn in 25 degrees Sagittarius and Sun sextile Saturn: Use your emotionally maturity to make wise decisions for long term goals. A pragmatic outlook helps you deal logically with any stress arising. Re-visiting traditional methods and re-inventing them will prove useful.
Moon trine Uranus in 21 degrees Aries and Sun sextile Uranus: Step out of your comfort zone and trust that you’re being guided in every moment. Meeting new people now will be exciting and enlightening. Allow strangers to share their wisdom and offer the same in return. Be wary of stubbornness or an inability to let go of deeply engrained beliefs. Let go of the past and begin again anew. Focus on what your heart needs first so you can offer your love effortlessly to the world.
Mercury in 5 degrees Aquarius sextile Venus in 5 degrees Aries and Mars in 10 degrees Aries: Thoughts are powerfully clear right now with Mercury in the expansive, airy, and ever curious water-barer, Aquarius. With Mars in its natural home of Aries, expect to be more inspired by your inner feelings rather than the external world. Follow your impulses as your psychic sight is on point right now. With Mars and Venus conjunct added to the mix, what loving Venusian thoughts arise after sensing your powerful intuition?
With Venus retrograde March 4th until April 15th, this is a wonderful time to turn inward and ask yourself, “What do I truly love? What am I passionate about and am I directing my passion with full force?” If you have your Ascendant in Taurus or Libra, expect this time to be extra introspective for you.
Jupiter sextile Saturn: Exercising caution will prove beneficial now. Think about your long-term goals. If anyone or anything is affecting those goals negatively or causing you unnecessary pain, cut them/it loose. You don’t need to justify yourself to others who don’t have the capacity to listen. In fact, you don’t need to justify yourself or your actions at all. We’re not meant to be understood and nether is life. Overthinking and constantly feeding your anxiety won’t solve anything. Use the ruthless power of Saturn to say goodbye to what doesn’t serve the greater good of All. There is nowhere to go but here, and here you are already whole. Jupiter, currently retrograde, turns direct on June 10th, manifesting those long-term goals you’ve been patiently working on.
Jupiter opposite Uranus and Jupiter square Pluto in 18 degrees Capricorn: If you feel the need to rebel or escape, you’re not alone. Allow the pressure to build and transform you. Don’t resist it or else it may explode within your personal relationships and cause more harm than good. With Pluto in Capricorn, we want to be in control right now, calling the shots. Even more so with Uranus in Aries. The extent of our personal and greater power is dawning on us, but it will only be truly realized and utilized if we offer that power to others to serve the whole. What pressure is within you and how is it transforming you? What will you do with your power once it is birthed?
Saturn sextile Uranus: Along with the strong Mars energy present, Uranus is enabling us to focus more on ourselves lately. Come the eclipse, we’ll see that using our personal power to help others awaken will be more satisfying than anything. What electric insights did you come here to share? With the Saturn energy so strong right now, you have the power to turn your wildest fantasies into reality.
Uranus square Pluto: “Should I feed my ego by buying a pair of new shoes or should I help others to make myself look good?” Obviously, the latter choice seems to serve the whole, but taken from the perspective of mind alone, won’t actually create any lasting change. The whole is always a reflection of what’s inside. Heal your soul first, and your mind, body and external world will follow.
The pattern created at the Eclipse is called a mystic rectangle aspect pattern. The X in the centre of the rectangle represents the inner turmoil or pressure building, while externally we seem cool and collected. Allow the tension to build and find creative ways to find release. Don’t be afraid to open up to others about what you’re going through. Chances are, they’re feeling the intensity of energy just as much as you are.
On top of the rectangle, creating a 3D pyramid shape, we have Saturn, Father Time, holding everything together, reminding us to remain practical and slow down! This aspect will enable us to experience real magic if we learn to channel our energy into what serves us and the whole, rather than dispel it at others through venting, etc.
Have a happy Full Moon and see you soon!
The Full Moon in 22 degrees Gemini occurring on December 14th, 2016 will be opposite the Moon in 22 degrees Sagittarius. Along with communication, Gemini rules interacting with our direct environment. With the Moon in this position, you may feel pulled all over the place emotionally, excited by what you see around you. I consider Gemini to be the curious, playful, and intellectual child. This is an excellent time to follow your creative whims and try things you may have been too afraid to explore in the past.
Sun conjunct Saturn in 19 degrees Sagittarius opposite the Moon: You may be feeling very defensive right now, which may be creating some tension within your relationships. If others around you are extra opinionated or stubborn, remember that they too are processing the same emotions that you are. Always offer encouragement and compassion, and if you can’t find the strength to do this, walk away and return to the situation when you can. Holding onto anger or tenaciously needing to be “right” will put your evolution on hold. Life doesn’t unfold according to how your ego wants it to. You receive what you need when you need it. Often what annoys you the most about others is what you need to work on within your own Being. Say thank you to what the universe is presenting you and let it transform you. If the transformation is messy or uncomfortable, breathe deeply and slowly, and soon it will pass, leaving you stronger, wiser and more aware.
Moon trine Mars in 25 degrees Aquarius and Jupiter in 18 degrees Libra: Your thought process will be much more expanded than usual. The Moon trine Jupiter in particular will make you especially excited to connect to others and share these thoughts, making the Saturn/Sun conjunction a little more bearable. With the Moon sextile Uranus in 20 degrees Aries, emotions will be a little erratic, but once again, this position creates wonderful opportunities for you to get together with others and share visionary insights.
Sun sextile Mars and Jupiter and trine Uranus: Your ego may be especially inflated right now, as new ideas and exciting visions for the future enter your consciousness. Remember, that nothing you “create” is ever created by “you,” your mind or your body, which are not who you truly are at all. Nothing is permanent, nothing persists and nothing can be controlled.
“ In Buddhism, the three marks of existence are three characteristics (Pali: tilakkhaṇa; Sanskrit: trilakṣaṇa) of all existence and beings, namely impermanence (anicca), unsatisfactoriness or suffering (dukkha), and non-self (anattā).” – Wikipedia
Mercury in 12 degrees Capricorn conjunct Pluto in 16 degrees Capricorn: Your thoughts may be on the more serious side at the moment, but your practical focus will help you actually see your goals though into the physical. The power of Pluto will be completely transforming the way you view yourself, others and the world. The silver lining will be Neptune in 9 degrees Pisces sextile Mercury, reminding you to slow down, dream, and observe the beauty all around you.
Jupiter sextile Saturn and Saturn trine Uranus: What were merely ideas once before will now be tangible. With Jupiter opposite Uranus and square Pluto, you can clearly see how your dreams are manifesting into the physical. You may be more driven than usual to adhere to the desires of your own ego, which once again, may cause some rifts in relationships. Ask yourself, “How can I balance the desires of my heart with the desires of others? How can I remain non-attached to all desires?”
Uranus square Pluto: When others don’t meet your demands or understand your sentiment, you may feel the need to go off on your own and exclude others. Remember that this tension is arising within the entire collective to be cleared! Forgive yourself for being selfish and egotistical and step back into unity.
Overall, this Moon will bring up a lot of disharmony within relationships, but with forgiveness, awareness, and humility, old soul contracts will be released for good.
If the healing process is overwhelming, enter into a meditation and think about the person that is annoying you the most to make the chord-cutting process easier to handle. Ask yourself, “What would that person have to do or say in order for me to forgive them completely?” Then do or say exactly that! Offer your heart the Highest Love in the world and watch your external reality completely shift to match your new vibration.
Sending you warm wishes for the holidays and see you in the new year!
