Watch out for the Full Moon in Scorpio this Tuesday!

There’s a Full Moon in Scorpio this Tuesday, 27th April, at 432 am in the UK.

On Tuesday, the Full Moon in Scorpio will be opposing a lovely stellium of four planets in Taurus, including the Sun, so as well as the investigative, penetrative, and private energies of Scorpio highlighting the sky between now and then, we have a good old huge dose of kind-natured, fixed and loving Taurus. With Mars newly in Cancer now too, focus this Full Moon may be on home, family, and on instinctively nurturing our own emotional boundaries and well-being. All planets except two (Saturn and Jupiter) are now in the feminine or yin energy signs, so we may be now feeling a lot more like staying at home, putting our feet up, and forgetting any and all of the drama that is going on in the world. All we need now is good food, our favourite TV show and family, right?!

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.

Happy birthday to Steven Frayne (aka Dynamo the magician)

Happy birthday to Steven Frayne (aka Dynamo the magician), who’s from Bradford, West Yorkshire (UK).

Some interesting things about Dynamo’s natal chart are his strong 5th house of entertainment and creative expressions, containing his Moon (which trines his Asc), Mercury, Venus and SN. Both his MC and Asc are ruled by Mercury, located in his 5th house and his 5th house is ruled by Saturn, which is located in his 3rd with Jupiter in Scorpio. This is a classic example of a repetition of themes in a chart, this time pointing to a love of delivering faceted information in a fun and captivating way.

Also presented in his Placidus chart is his Sun-Neptune conjunction his 4th house, bringing to mind his natural proclivity for illusion and mystery. Mars, in its joy in his 6th house of work, rules both his 8th and 3rd houses, further supporting these themes.

There are indications in Steven’s natal chart that suggests he may experience some level of discomfort when details close to his personal life appear in the public eye, despite his fame, which is evident from all of his planets residing in the Northern hemisphere of his chart. This means he may be most comfortable remaining private and may even be seen as an intensely private person to those who know him best. Still, a well-known public image can become increasingly likely when there are planets forming major aspects to the MC and here, Steven has his Uranus, which is his 6th house ruler, opposing his MC. Uranus rules his 6th house of work while forming a partile sextile to Mars in Aquarius, also in his 6th. This is a signature to both his unusual and off-beat profession and his independent streak, which he demonstrated in the launching of his own production company, Inner Circle Films in 2016, also very typical of a strong 5th house.

Unfortunately, Steven Frayne was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when he was 17 years old, not long after Neptune moved into his 6th house by transit and was accompanied by Uranus, bringing forward a theme of weakened immunity, a potential that is signified by his Sun-Neptune conjunction in his 4th house, squaring his Ascendant in Virgo and his Mars-Saturn square ruling his 6th, 8th and 3rd houses. Virgo and the 6th house are classic significators of nutrition and digestive health and Mars afflictions further denote potentialities for physical difficulties with the digestive tract and irritation and inflammation.

Dynamo began his career as a magician after moving to London in 2004, while transformative Pluto was transiting his 4th house of home and Neptune still transited his 6th house, that year exactly trining his MC at 13°23′ Gemini. This highlights his skill as a master of illusion, with an easy flow of planetary energy into the public eye with his career and public image. Not only was it also the year of his Uranus square, a 6th house co-ruler, but Jupiter was transiting his 2nd house too, pertaining to the expansion and exploration of talents and personal worth. Brilliant!

The coming Full Moon Astrology | December 2019

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.

The coming Full Moon Astrology | August 2019

General Venus topics include love and romance, aesthetics and general appearance, harmony and peace, artistry, creativity, sensuality, leisure and the physical aspects of pleasure that include clothes shopping and retail therapy for home decor and other such things.

The Post ~ 15th August 2019

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.

Tips for making the most out of the coming Full Moon

There’s a Full Moon this Wednesday, the 24th October, exacting at around 4:45pm in the UK.

The Moon at 1°13′ Taurus is all about those creature comforts and kicking back with those closest to you, so this week (especially as it’s the school holidays here in the UK), it will be great to just find yourself time to relax and have fun. Because there may have been high levels of productivity for the majority of the year so far, with Saturn in domicile and creating such brilliant aspects with so many of our Full Moons, it looks like we can finally begin to see some benefits for all our hard work and therefore ease off a little.

Eclipse highlights, 27th July 2018

There’s a Full Moon this Friday, the 27th July, which reaches its fullest at 19 minutes past 8 in the evening in the UK.

In Air sign Aquarius, this Full Moon will primarily be highlighting (or bringing to our attention) our own, unique ways of thinking and our styles of communication, especially amongst our friends and in group settings. Usually there is something unavoidable which is staring straight at us, that is deeply meaningful to us, causing us to ponder, or something that is emotionally triggering us during a Full Moon and, with the Moon’s tight conjunction with Mars in Retrograde this month, it could be something we are deeply passionate about or even something that makes us uncomfortably annoyed (or uncomfortably excited, even).
