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.

New Moon in Aries, Spring Equinox and Saturn in Aquarius -- Being the Eye of the Hurricane

The new moon in Aries tomorrow is coming to us on the heels of some quite intense planetary alignments, that reflect the state of our collective experience with the world around us — as above, so below. Just a few days ago, on March 19th-20th we had the spring equinox, the beginning of the astrological new year, the Sun moving into Aries, a time that usually heralds in a wave of new energy. The day after the spring equinox, Mars and Jupiter aligned in the same sign, creating an explosion of tension and volatile energy. And then on March 22nd, Saturn moved into Aquarius after it’s two and a half years journey in Capricorn.

Let’s translate all this into meaningful information that we can use, let’s take a look at what the planets are saying to us about the energetic influences that we are under so that we can best align ourselves to it and use it constructively.

December 26th Solar Eclipse in Capricorn ~ Be the Cause, not the Effect

Tonight at 12:13am we have an annular or ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse. This occurs when the Moon is between the Earth and the Sun, but the isn’t able to cover it completely, leaving a ring of light around the eclipsed Sun. Solar eclipses are always a powerful energetic time bringing to light things that usually remain in the shadows. Astrologically, this particular solar eclipse has a vibrant quality to it due to the planetary alignments it makes.

Winter Solstice 2019 - The Wound is Where the Light Enters You

Tonight is the longest night of 2019, it is winter solstice which means that at 11:19pm tonight, the sun officially enters Capricorn. It is a night of introspection and meditation. A night when we are given an opportunity to look at what lies in the dark crevices of our inner world.

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.

This is a time of Upheaval Reorganization. But the upheaval has the potential to throw is back into old patterns but if we can hold steady then then upheaval reorganizes to a higher order.

Full Moon in Taurus - Claim Your Power Back

It’s been quite an intense couple of weeks since the new moon which ushered in the Mercury retrograde. The energy of this retrograde has been as promised, transformative and challenging (two sides of the same coin). The full moon in Taurus today is not as much a respite from these challenges as it is a glimpse into the potential of what could happen when we allow ourselves to unravel into those very contractions within our being that are making us ‘feel all the feelings’..all those feelings that we would rather not experience.
