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.

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.

Regarded as tremendously important throughout the history of Mundane Astrology, Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions are also known as ‘Great Conjunctions’ to Astrologers and Astronomers alike and are said to mark the beginnings of new cultural, political and economic eras1, occurring around every 20 years.
First, a brief word on 2020
The day of the Great Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn on December 21st appeared quite a lot in the media, coming at a time when Astrology has been growing in popularity at an increasing rate, which really fits in with the symbology of these planets in Aquarius, as the sign of Aquarius with ruler Uranus tends to denote all of the occult science subjects, including Astrology. These conjunctions occur almost every 20 years, usually in clusters of three due to the retrograde motions of the planets yet this time, there is only one. Continue reading
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. 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’.
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.

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.

Your forecast for this Full Moon period and the fortnight ahead.
Simply because the Full Moon tomorrow follows on from two eclipses, the Super Blood Blue Moon Total Eclipse on the 31st January and the Partial Solar Eclipse on the 15th February, I have been quietly expectant of a lot happening this week for everybody due to the carrying over of such potent energies from the previous Continue reading
Highlights forecast for this Full Moon period and the fortnight ahead.
Let’s begin by saying, there are a few striking things about our first Full Moon of 2018, that occurs on the 1st January in Western Greenland and the USA, yet becomes exact on the 2nd January in the UK and most other parts of the world. The first is the Grand Trine pattern in the element of Water that the Moon is joining in on. Continue reading
Highlights forecast for this Full Moon period and the fortnight ahead.
The Full Moon in Gemini occurring today highlights negotiations of all types this month and for most of us it can indicate a culmination of our focused energies that have built up over the past few weeks. This is because Geminis ruler, Mercury, has been slowing down ready for its retrograde to station at the time of the Full Moon, today and is also tightly conjoining Saturn. Continue reading
Highlights forecast for this New Moon period and the fortnight ahead.
Tomorrow, we will have the first New or Full Moon to occur since good old, friendly Jupiter entered Scorpio last Tuesday, so this might be great for all water signs, especially for Scorpio, with Jupiter conjoining the New Moon in late Libra, Mercury in Scorpio and the Vertex point, also in Scorpio.
