The coming Full Moon Astrology | December 2019

The Post ~ 12th December 2019

There’s a Full Moon in Gemini this Wednesday, 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.

This new peaceful super-consciousness that surrounds us may be a contrast from what we have experienced over the past few weeks as, at the time of the Sagittarius New Moon on the 26th November, Mars in Scorpio was fairly tightly opposing Uranus, who was both in detriment and in retrograde motion. Firstly, I’m not sure if you will remember back to that time but if you do, you may have noticed there were quite a few more accidents happening than usual, as is usually the case reported under the tensions of the Mars-Uranus opposition. Both Uranus and Mars are known for their disruptive tendencies; Uranus’ effects can be both explosive and unexpected while the energies of Mars (especially while in Scorpio) can be both aggressive and unyielding. So, we may have experienced some of this tension energy between Uranus and Mars within our selves and in situations around us over the past few weeks and with the New Moon having occurred in Sagittarius, it’s more than likely that tensions were generally met with a healthy dose of reaction and possibly even some fireworks.

The positive thing about the New Moon was that Sagittarius’ ruler, Jupiter was conjoining Venus, who was at Capricorn’s critical degree and both of these two loosely aspected the Mars-Uranus conjunction I have been talking about. This indicates that love relationships will have had plenty of opportunity for growth and expansion from which to further build positive long-lasting foundations, even if this did arise from a few tensions and arguments. This is of course an awesome ending to a lunar cycle story!

Lastly, with our artistic imaginations and peaceful super-consciousness (both collective and individual) flowing strongly under the Full Moon this week, we also can’t ignore the fact that there will be strong themes of adventurousness, positivity, talkativeness, multi-tasking and mental agility, as our Moon will be Full under Gemini after all.

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.

Tomorrow, the New Moon is in Aries at 26°, which is the same degree of the New Moon that was in Pisces on the 17th March earlier this year. This means that those of you born with your Sun, another personal planet (Mercury, Venus, Mars or Moon) or an important angle Continue reading

The Partial Solar Eclipse, 15th February 2018

Your forecast for this The Partial Solar Eclipse period and the fortnight ahead.

The New Moon next week, on Thursday, will be a Partial Solar Eclipse, which is the New Moon directly following the Super Blue Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse on the 31st January. A Partial Solar Eclipse is a special event of its own accord, Astrologically, but the fact that these two occur one after the other in such a fashion gives this time, in early 2018, Continue reading

Following the Third Quarter and Balsamic Moon phases (over the past 7 – 8 days), when we’re usually resting our minds and allowing our internal clutter from the Full Moon to organize itself, gradually putting all of that away to give way to budding ideas and plans, the time is right for a New birth of energies now.
