Full Moon in Pisces - Open Intuition, Wounded Heart

This year has been the most time warping experience, and I can’t believe we are in September already! So it’s Virgo season and tonight’s full Moon is in the sign of Pisces, the fish. This Neptune ruled full Moon makes a strong and harmonious aspect to Uranus, and the result is a strong sense of heightened intuition and a desire to experience the ‘out of the ordinary’.

Full Moon in Aquarius - Emotions Running High

The Moon is an emotional planetary archetype. It’s the deeper aspect of us, the feminine, more subconscious side of us that we are not always aware of. It doesn’t particularly feel at home in the sign of Aquarius, which is a masculine, eccentric and mental air sign. There is a natural feeling of agitation when the moon is in Aquarius, and with tonight’s full moon, it’s even more high strung because this full moon squares, i.e. makes a tense aspect to the planet Uranus (which actually rules Aquarius). Uranus is the archetype of the wild card in astrology. The ruler of innovation, technology and the iconoclastic mindset. This full moon has quite a strong Uranian flavor to it, which means expect the unexpected.

Full Super Moon in Libra — Seeing the Bigger Picture

Tonight’s Full Moon is the strongest super moon of the year, meaning that it is closer in proximity to the earth that it will get in 2020. This moon comes in the midst of a big upheaval we are going through in our collective consciousness, as evidenced by the world’s events. In order to understand the energetic influence of this particular full moon, we need to look at the aspects that the planets are making right now. The strongest aspect that this full moon makes is to the conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn that has been in the heavens since the new moon on March 24th.

Full Moon in Gemini - It’s Time to Get Complete

Tonight is the last full moon of 2019, and numerologically it’s a powerful new moon taking place on 12/12 at exactly 12:12am. In Chaldean numerology, 12 is considered a mystical number. There are 12 astrological signs, and the Earth makes one orbit of the Sun through these 12 signs in the same amount of time that the Moon takes to orbit the Earth 12 times. The planet Jupiter is larger than all the other planets in our solar system combined, and Jupiter takes about 12 years to complete one orbit of the Sun. Jesus chose 12 apostles, each of whom are said to embody the archetype of each of the sun signs with the Master being the 13th one, and the one who has learned to master the signs rising above their karmic influence.

So needless to say, the full Moon tonight carries with it a certain energetic vibration that is quite powerful. From an astrological point of view, this full Moon in Gemini has quite an urgent quality of completion to it. Venus, Saturn and Pluto are all aligned and conjunct in the sign of Capricorn, which is a rare alignment, and one we need to look at closely to understand the effects of the planets on our collective and individual consciousness. Venus is the planet of love, femininity, sensuality and money. Saturn is the planet of restriction, contraction and karma. Pluto is the planet of transformation, death, sex and the underworld. When these three planets line up together, they create quite an intense influence on our collective psyche. As a collective, and also on an individual level depending on where these planets fall in our chart, we are going to be asked to look at these areas of our life. Love, sex, finances, transformation and blocks. These are the key words that come to mind in term of where we should be looking to consider what needs to shift.

The mind is a great servant, but a terrible master.

New Moon in Sagittarius - Higher Mind Expansion

After an intense few weeks of a very edgy Mercury retrograde, now we are in the post shadow period, still integrating all the learning the retrograde brought us. Tonight’s new moon in Sagittarius is a welcome shift from the watery Scorpio intensity to the fiery expansiveness of Sagittarius. In order to understand the planetary influence under this new moon, we first need to understand the domains of Mercury, Moon and Sagittarius. Mercury rules the mind, and our intellect (amongst other things), while the ruler of Jupiter, Sagittarius is the ruler of the higher mind. This is the aspect of our mind that is closer to our Soul, our higher consciousness.

Harvest Moon in Pisces ~ Uncomfortable Emotional Waters

Life began in water. We are made of 70% water, and astrologically water is the strongest element due to it’s nature of non-resistance. This full moon in Pisces is a very watery full moon indeed. Conjunct Neptune (which is still in retrograde) this moon carries a strong Neptunian flavor, and Neptune rules the oceans and the churning waves of our emotions. So this harvest moon will carry us to the world hidden from our view, a world we can only navigate through feeling.

Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius — Calm your fire to hear your Truth

This morning at 8:30am, the full sturgeon moon in Aquarius rose high in the sky. This August full moon is always an interesting polarity of energies because while the Sun in Leo is heart energy, it is personal love, self-love while the Moon in Aquarius is love for all humanity, a universal love. Both are necessary, because we cannot love anybody else if we don’t know how to love ourselves, and also if we don’t learn to share the love we have, we cannot grow and evolve.
