There’s a Full Moon in Capricorn this evening, 24th June, at 7:39 pm in the UK.
Today’s Moon will enter maximum opposition at 7:39 pm at 3° Capricorn with the Sun at 3° Cancer. This is only three days following our Summer Solstice on June 21st, which was the longest day of the year and the UK’s beginning of Summer.
With the Full Moon happening along astrology’s business and home axis, the inherent values of Capricorn and Cancer may become a focal point this week. In such a way this Full Moon looks to be a great one for us workaholics, especially as many of us are now working from home.
With Jupiter trining the Sun and forming a sextile to the Moon in Capricorn, work may also come with a feel-good quality about it today, regardless of how little of that Full Moon sleep we mustered. Jupiter is retrograde in Pisces, meaning going with the flow may be essential this week as at times day-to-day things may appear to be a little confusing. Trust in the universe, as it will catch our fall as long as we try our best. Or we can trust in our planet of luck Jupiter at the very least!
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.
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’.
The Post ~ 21st March 2019
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.
