It’s a Full Moon in Libra on Sunday!

There’s a Full Moon in Libra this Sunday, 28th March, at 7:48 pm in the UK.

The Full Moon in Libra will be forming a nice grand air trine with Saturn in Aquarius and a Mars – North Node conjunction in Gemini. This then forms a kite pattern when the South Node is also taken into account here. In fact, it forms two; one with South Node at the apex and the other with the Sun at the apex. So when we look at these in terms of focal points, it could mean that we’re feeling driven right now to go ahead and put the things into motion that have been mulling around in our heads over the past few months or even longer. There might be a range of different things and these might be things that a very air element things to do such as writing, talking, socialising, networking, sharing ideas and following ambitions etc. Anything shared with an audience or groups of people are air sign things to do. We may find we are stepping into these things almost instinctively while seeking emotional balance with the Moon in Libra as part of this configuration. With the Sun also at an apex position in almost exact conjunctions with Venus and Chiron, we may also feel compelled to fall into an act now, think later kind of mode and this also shows that a) we can be warriors of compassion and support for one another, especially where romance is concerned and b) this can be used to fuel our passion in our artistic and creative endeavours.

Our Full Moon is in Virgo Tomorrow, February 27th!

There’s a Full Moon in Virgo tomorrow, 27th February, at around 8:17 am in the UK.

Virgo is an Earth sign that is Mutable and ruled by Mercury, so the atmospheric colours and creature comforts that may surround while the Moon is in this sign may be centred around work, keeping busy and being generally helpful and kind towards others. Mercury is all about connecting, but one of the signatures of Virgo is to be able to take in a lot of practical information and deeply analyse it with an accuracy and speed that can really take our goals and ambitions to the next level, regardless of the projects we are currently working on. As an Earth sign, this energy can really help us to juggle several projects simultaneously in order to stay ahead in our day-to-day lives. These are just a few of the great things about having the Moon in Virgo, especially while all other planets are sharing the signs Capricorn through Taurus; we are presented with the opportunity to take advantage of the usual gifts offered by the sign Virgo.

The 11th February 2021 New Moon

Our next New Moon will be in Aquarius this Thursday, 11th February, at 19:05 here in the UK.

The New Moon on Thursday will be in Aquarius at 23°, marking the start of a fresh journey for all of us this month, with reference to similar energetic themes of a much larger journey that was kickstarted by the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on the 21st December last year. Important Aquarius configurations and lunations send out ripples of energy, calling us to become more aware of our surroundings and each other. Aquarius is a conscious sign, ruled by the transpersonal planet Uranus, that can act as something of a truth serum both personally and in the collective conscious and this can really help as a glue within society, that binds us together with common goals towards global insight and positive change.

Joining the New Moon in Aquarius are the Mercury retrograde, Saturn in domicile and a partile conjunction between Venus and Jupiter at 12°. Venus and Jupiter so close together like this will bring a huge dose of positive enhancement to the whole effect of the sign of Aquarius, which I think is in some ways helping to mitigate some of the problems usually associated with the Mercury retrograde, especially as Mercury is so supported in the sign of Aquarius already.

Our Full Moon in Leo this Thursday, January 28th!

There’s a Full Moon in Leo this Thursday, 28th January, at around 7:16 pm in the UK.

If you’re feeling more optimistic, excited and positive this week than you have in a while, this may be because we are receiving a great ol’ dose of energy from Jupiter, as he will be in exact conjunction with the Sun and opposition from the Moon this Thursday. Because it’s a Full Moon, we can experience these energies a week or even more prior to the event, especially if we have our own personal alignments with the event chart of the Full Moon. Jupiter, the planet of enthusiasm and optimism is now becoming freer of Saturn’s ties and strictures as he moves on faster through the zodiac and on Thursday, his energies are further boosted by the confident and bold energies of our Sun and vice versa. This means we have a double-whammy of positive energy lighting up the sky.

The Full Moon ~ 30th December 2020

There’s a Full Moon in Cancer this Wednesday (tomorrow), 30th December, at around 3:28 am in the UK. It’s the final Full Moon of the year!

The Full Moon tomorrow is all about our emotional and nurturing instincts, our subtle spiritual bodies and finding a balance between these things and our practical pursuits, day-to-day living and our working lives. I feel that the healing theme has definitely rolled over again from previous months, only this time, instead of the delay in expression or release that accompanied the symbolism of the Full Moon last month, ascension into greater spiritual awareness and healing are now focal points and could be experienced a little more profoundly with Chiron in Aries acting as the crux of a T-square with the Moon and Sun on the Capricorn-Cancer axis. Potentials for transforming how we deal with and think about practical responsibilities are highlighted, with Pluto in the same house and sign as the Sun and Mercury and having those brilliant light-bulb moments and boundless wells of creativity to enable us to do this is a positive vibration that is offered by the cosmos with Uranus in Taurus forming swift-access trines with the Sun and Moon.

The New Moon Total Solar Eclipse ~ 14th December 2020

There’s a New Moon Total Eclipse in Sagittarius tomorrow, 14th December, at 16:17 in the UK.

The New Moon tomorrow will be in Sagittarius at 23°, conjoining Mercury on the Moon’s South Node (also both in Sagittarius) whilst trining Mars in Aries. So there’s some fire energy here! Yes, even though Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius is still in Capricorn, flanked closely by both Saturn and Pluto, we do have some fire working-out within these trines of the New Moon. I feel that Jupiter’s position in late Capricorn in-between these two heavy planets is perfectly symbolic of the position we find ourselves in at the moment, as a nation (and globally). We are nearing the end of one of the heaviest, most transformational years we have had for a long time in which many of our freedoms have been thwarted, much like some of Jupiter’s free and fiery energy may be thwarted during the time he finds himself sandwiched amidst this configuration of planets. Jupiter here represents us and our personal freedom to explore the world and our surroundings and our sense of an ending to this adversity can be represented by Jupiter’s onward movement out of Capricorn and into an air sign; Jupiter will be strengthened via triplicity ruler in Aquarius here.

Therefore, as the ruler of our New Moon Total Solar Eclipse is in a somewhat frustrated position, looking forward to an end to all this, which will no doubt be marked by a series of perfectly-timed conjunctions with Saturn in Aquarius, we have a good dose of fire energy to feed our restlessness and creative endeavours as we lie in wait for the world to get back to ‘normal’. That fire energy is in the shape of a New Moon with a detriment Mercury.

The Full Moon (penumbral eclipse) ~ 30th November 2020

There’s a Full Moon in Gemini this Monday (or tomorrow), 30th November, at around 9:30 am in the UK. It’s a Full Moon penumbral eclipse!

The Full Moon this Monday in Gemini will be energetically disposed to Mercury in Scorpio, who will be in an applying sextile to Saturn after separating from the same aspect to Jupiter. This means that the week surrounding the Full Moon, either side, maybe a time many of us find ourselves deep in thought, heavily pondering on certain aspects of our lives that have been niggling at us throughout the year. Perhaps it is coming to a time where we could finally look towards mending these little (or huge) annoyances that have been getting in the way of our general peace and happiness, once and for all. Wouldn’t it be amazing to begin 2021 with something that we feel truly resembles a fresh start for us? I know I would!

New Moon ~ 15th November 2020

There’s a New Moon in Taurus this Sunday, 15th November, at 05:07 in the UK.

The New Moon this Sunday is in Scorpio at 23°, trining Neptune, which is in domicile in Pisces and this means that we have a wonderfully watery New Moon coming up for us this weekend. The water sign energy can heighten our intuition and general sensitivity, so this is a great time to meditate to listen more closely to the things your gut has been trying to tell you over the past two months, while Mars has been retrograde.

Yes Mars, our fiery, red planet that is most comfortable blazing onward with vigour has been on his [apparent] backwards path since the 9th September, so it is not unusual at all if you have been feeling somewhat stifled or like you’re trudging through mud lately. Now on this day Friday 13th, while I am writing this article, Mars is finally moving direct-wards again so we can happily invite some greater movement and confidence into our lives from this day, going forward. Things might seem a lot clearer during the New Moon too, for this reason.

Full Moon ~ 31st October 2020

There’s a Full Moon in Taurus this Saturday, 31st October, at around 14:49 in the UK.

The Full Moon this Saturday in Taurus really closely conjoins Uranus in his detriment, which means what might have usually been cosy, steady and predictable time for us could be enhanced with some last-minute surprises, so hold on to your seats this weekend, especially if you have any personal planets around 8° of any of the fixed signs. The Uranus-Moon conjunction will indeed be at 8° Taurus, with the Sun opposing these at 8° Scorpio, so if you do have any personal planets or angles (namely the Ascendant, Descendant, Midheaven or Immum Coeli) at this same degree in Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius, this is you. If you do experience anything unexpected around the time of the Full Moon, give or take a few days, please share with me what it was in the comments below.

The Post ~ 12th December 2019

There’s a Full Moon in Gemini this Thursday, the 12th December, exacting at around 05:11 in the UK.

This Full Moon in Gemini is all about learning how to ‘go with the flow’ without a desire to influence or change those things around you that you know you can have no control over. With Mars passing the centre of Scorpio at 15° there may certainly be some extra desire for power or influence lately stirring within us, whether that be simply control over our own lives or something else. But at the time of the Full Moon on Wednesday, Mars will be in a partile trine with Neptune in Pisces and this easy and supportive aspect with Neptune will encourage us to release our grip and allow the subconscious urges that are gracefully artistic and at one with the natural flow of the cosmos to run through us, opening our minds to a more peaceful super-consciousness.
