There’s a Full Moon in Aquarius next Thursday, the 15th August, exacting at around 12:30 pm in the UK.
Once again the Sun will be conjoining Venus in Leo, only this time further on in the sign at 22°. Another difference is they will be much more tightly conjunct, with Venus sharing the same degree of the Sun at 22° Leo, hence the Moon also, which will be in opposition at 22° Aquarius. This information tells us several things. Firstly, that the Full Moon this month is ruled by Uranus and secondly, that we can expect special focus over the next few weeks to be on anything that generally relates to Venus or more personally (and likely) the way Venus relates in our natal charts and via transit.Continue reading

There’s a partial Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn this Tuesday, the 16th July, exacting at around 9:38 pm in the UK.
It may only be a partial eclipse this Tuesday, but it will be made all the more important and impactful with the conjunctions of Saturn and Pluto to the Moon and the conjunctions of Venus and Mercury retrograde to the Sun. Both Saturn and Venus will be within 1°30′ of the Moon’s nodal axis, which will greatly enhance the significance of their already tight opposition and Mars will conjoin Mercury, adding heat to the cluster of oppositions, as both Mars and Mercury’s energies will be disposed towards the Sun.
With these oppositions and the Moon’s nodes along the Cancer-Capricorn axis we can expect that shifts might have to be made to accommodate on-going beneficial home and work life balances around the time frame spanning a couple of weeks prior to the eclipse and a couple of weeks following. There is a much longer window of time in which the effects of eclipses can take place and eclipses are very much intensified versions of the Full Moons. Additionally, as many of us are very much aware, Full Moon energies often urge us into action in some way or another, because all the energy that has been building up since the time of the New Moon is being released and quite often, it can not be ignored. So, whatever you have set with intention and worked towards since the Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer on the 2nd July, you could reap the benefits of this coming week.Continue reading

There’s a Full Moon in Sagittarius this Monday, the 17th June, exacting at around 08:30am in the UK.
The Full Moon this Monday will be at 25°53′ Sagittarius so will be both conjoining and ruled by Jupiter, who will be at 18°37′ Sagittarius and, as the second Jupiter-Neptune square this year will be in alignment from 9th to 24th June, this Full Moon will also very much be coloured by this Jupiter-Neptune square.
Neptune is the apex of a T-square between the Moon-Jupiter conjunction and the Sun so takes much of the strain of this configuration, while in domicile in Pisces and this could really bring our subconscious urges into focus, even much more than during a usual Full Moon, meaning many of us might be more reactive at a deeper, instinctual level. Be careful of a greater risk of accidents, because those of us holding down unreleased tensions can unconsciously react at times like these, due to hidden strain.Continue reading

There’s a Full Moon in Scorpio this Saturday, the 18th May, exacting at around 21:11am in the UK.
The Full Moon this Saturday will be at 27° Scorpio so, as with all events bathed in the energy of Scorpio, there are likely to be the emotional elements of extremity, seriousness, emotional connectedness and will power cycling through our collective consciousness, as our guiding satellite yet again temporarily shares with us the unique energies she brings while illuminated through this sign. Much of the energy of the New Moon in Taurus of the 4th May pointed towards elements super-connectedness, plenty for social and practical reasons, while Mars in Gemini was in mutual reception with Mercury, Mercury conjoined Uranus in Taurus and the Sun and Moon trined the Pluto Saturn conjunction in Capricorn. Now, as we are building up to the Full Moon, communication methods we primarily come to rely on may wane into those that are less obviously noticeable, such as body language cues, vague emotional undertones and psychic absorption, yet connectedness may still be a strong focus, as Mercury will conjoin the Sun in Taurus.Continue reading

There’s a Full Moon this coming Friday, the 19th April, exacting at around 11:11am in the UK.
The Full Moon this Friday will be at 29° Libra so, although Full Moons might often feel quite emotionally fraught in energy, this one could have an atmosphere that is a little more subdued or with an energy that feels a little more like a ‘pulling back’ feeling than the usual peaking, ‘culmination point’ feeling that we so often associate with the Full Moons. Additionally, the contrast may be noticed between this one and the critical degree series of Full Moons that came to introduce us to 2019, one of which occurred at perigee. The year really did begin with a bang regarding the Moon’s cycle and all the close aspects that formed between planets during each Full Moon over the past three or four months, which bought us such a variety of potent energies. It is unsurprising if most of us have had quite an eventful start to the year.Continue reading
The term supermoon can be credited to Astrologer Richard Nolle, who admits he ‘created and defined the term in an article published over 30 years ago’.

There’s a Full Moon on Thursday, the 21st March, exacting at around 1:43am in the UK.
I have been talking a lot about the critical degrees lately, due to the fact that our last four Full Moons have occurred at 00°. Now the one this Thursday is the final one in this critical degree series and I feel that this is something of both a culmination point and a gateway through into the next phase of life for us; one that can potentially do a lot to help see us through the rest of this year, as we take the energies from these critical degrees through with us. The first one that occurred in November highlighted this important degree of the Gemini/ Sagittarius axis and Jupiter (who has been thriving comfortably in his domicile throughout) has found his way into such a strong position each of these Full Moons, if not positioned right next to the Sun, Mercury or Venus then at least trining or ruling the Ascendant. For these reasons it makes complete sense to me that this passage of time between November’s Full Moon and this Thursday’s Full Moon has been a lot about exploring; especially exploring our options and opening ourselves up to new possibilities in certain areas of our lives that were previously somewhat obscured. There is also the mutability factor of the Gemini/ Sagittarius axis, meaning this passage of time has also been about adapting and this of course means adapting to the new paths we have taken and opened ourselves up to, while allowing ourselves a much wider view of the world (or our worlds) than we were previously capable of.Continue reading
February 2019 ~ The Post
There’s a Full Moon on Tuesday, the 19th February, exacting at around 3:53pm in the UK.
For the fourth month in a row, the Full Moon will fall at the critical degree (00°) of a sign only this time it will be in Mutable sign Virgo. The last of this series of Full Moons falling at this same 00° critical degree of a sign will occur next month, when it falls in cardinal sign Libra. I feel that these five months of Full Moons (from November 2018 to March 2019) in critical degrees are important as, the Full Moon in January at 00° of Leo was the last of a set of Full and New Moons on the Leo/ Aquarius axis spanning over the past few years and the critical degree signification of beginning new ventures while travelling into an oncoming realm of fresh possibilities fits in well with the North Node’s ingress into Cancer in mid-November, just before the first Full Moon in this short critical-degree series.

For the third month in a row, the Full Moon will fall at the all-important critical degree (00°) of a sign. This month it is a lunar eclipse in Leo and there will be plenty of hard aspects that could potentially Continue reading
help shake you out of your comfort zone. So, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Drama. All types of drama. Whether this be professional drama and soaps, a general dramatic event or a personal, emotional dramatic event, something dramatic could well be stirring or brewing in the atmosphere this week.
Tips for making the most out of the coming Full Moon
There’s a Full Moon next Saturday, the 22nd December, exacting at around 5:48pm in the UK.
Again, just like last month, the Full Moon will be at that all-important critical degree (00°), but this time it will be in the cardinal sign, Cancer. As in their cardinal modalities, the four cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, are all about leadership, movement and initiating, just as they each represent the start of a new season (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, respectively). As the critical 00° degree of any sign is also about beginnings, initiation and fresh starts, here is what an Astrologer might call a double whammy in indication of such things, or a double strength in likelihood of them being what this period of time could be about for many of us, most especially for those of us whose personal planets closely aspect the Sun or the Moon on the 22nd December this year.

Tips for making the most out of the coming Full Moon
There’s a Full Moon this Friday, the 23rd November, exacting at around 5:39am in the UK.
The Moon will be at a critical degree of a mutable sign this month, therefore there is likely to be a theme in the days running up to the Full Moon and for approximately a week after that, that centres around incorporating some adaptability of our mental attitudes and/ or our perceptions towards our way of living somehow. How this actually unfolds in our lives and in which area of life it affects might depend greatly on which of our houses the Sun and Moon fall into next Friday. The brilliant thing is that the Sun will be conjoining Jupiter with only Continue reading
