New Moon Forecast: Mystical Energy and Right Action

Image by Lucy Campbell

Every week or so, the motion of the planets alters our reception of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energy. (Think of the planets as filters or colored orbs.) They can bring harmony, conflict, or combinations of emotions, which bring struggle or ease. In general, my forecasts share the meanings of the combination of planetary energies. Honestly, no one knows exactly how we will feel the shifts because the planet is changing with the constant influx of new energies.

The New Moon appears on Saturday, March 17 at 9:11 a.m. During this time, we rest in the void and focus on the future while waiting for the light to return. It is good to center so we can find our way in the “dark.

Sun, Moon, Neptune, and Chiron are placed in Pisces, which offers nurturing, healing, mysticism, and unconditional love. With many planets in water, we can feel intense emotion, and it’s important to channel it into spiritual growth and devotion. Think of the fishes swimming in two directions.

With Mercury (communications), Venus (love), and Mars (action) in fire signs, we’ll receive a strong impulse to act on our thoughts and passions. But this forecast is about alignment and balance. It’s important to take (only) inspired action that comes from the inner self—and to balance it with periods of rest.

Sun (outer self) and Moon (inner self) in Pisces sit in a lovely trine with Jupiter (good fortune) in Scorpio. Trines are harmonious and creative; they also confer ease with manifestation. This aspect indicates a beneficial relationship between a focus on the mystical and a desire to see the truth beneath the surface—which is part of the spiritual quest. (This trine is formed by water and emphasizes the value of flowing, positive emotions.)

Mercury (communications), Venus (feminine, love, material possessions) and Uranus (spiritual change, awakening) are placed in Aries, a forceful fire sign, which focuses on moving forward—the opposite direction of Sun and Moon. Mercury (communications) is quick, brilliant, and active in Aries. This placement gives power with words, writing, and communication. It heightens the imagination and produces new ideas. Mercury in Aries is also passionate. It longs to move into new spaces of the mind and life. (Think of traveling to Mars. It’s a perfect Mercury in Aries idea.)

Venus (feminine, material possessions, love) is independent and bold in Aries. The “warrior” energies are not compatible with Venus’ desire to love, flow, and beautify. Venus in Aries can act in a self-centered way, preferring love for self to loving others. However, Aries is the first sign in the astrological wheel, indicating the possibility of beneficial, new beginnings in love, money, and self-awareness.

Mercury (communications, mind) and Venus (love, feminine) square Saturn, asking us to curb the desire to act with a sense of responsibility. It simply means to give pause to our strong thoughts and feelings about relationships and to think before acting.

Mars (assertiveness, male energy) is placed in Sagittarius, and it is adventurous in the sign of the archer. It’s expansive and confident, yearning for new frontiers. It amplifies our spiritual vision and gives power to delve into spiritual pursuits.

Sun (outer life) and Moon (inner life) square Mars (male energy, assertion) in Sagittarius. The square creates tension between the desire to absorb spiritual energy through a passive state (Pisces) and to seek wisdom through action and/or a quest. (We need both.)

Mars (masculine, action) trines Uranus in Aries, increasing the desire for action. It sharpens the instincts and gives the urge to focus on projects, work, and the body. Think of it as intensified drive. Again, the caution is to think before acting and to remember the value of contemplative thought and living.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) sits in Scorpio, a water sign that rules birth, death, sex, and inheritance. In this placement, Jupiter in Scorpio asks for review of obstacles in life and to move through our fears. The ultimate aim is expansion of all that is good in us. (Jupiter moved retrograde on March 12, allowing us to review goals and life progress to create greater abundance and expansion.)

Saturn is in Capricorn, the goat, and asks for review of the structures in our life and the creation of a new foundation in life. Everything looks and works differently in the New Age; it’s important to recreate ourselves as well. This also includes financial, physical, and social systems. Saturn also rules career and resources; it can be limiting or protective.

Mercury (communications, mind), Venus (love, feminine), and Uranus (awakening, sudden change) square Pluto (regeneration, underworld). These squares indicate the importance of observing the desire for motion and action with the structure of concrete change that supports the growth of the inner self. (Brilliant, new ideas are only helpful when they work for the good of self.)

The square between Uranus and Pluto continues for a few more months. It continually moves between the ecstatic sensation of awakening and the darkness of the underworld. When we decide to move through our underlying fears, life changes quite drastically—and in a very positive sense.

Small, Simple Changes

Small steps practiced throughout the day raise consciousness and allow us to see life from a higher perspective. They also raise our vibration, making it easier to function happily and peacefully in a changing world.
  1. Dreaming with faith is very important; it’s how we express our inner light. It’s also how we shape the substance of energy in life. Practice visualization of  the desired future each day.
  2. When negative (global  or personal) events occur, come to center. Focus on the heart space, a beautiful pink circle in the center of the chest. The heart is the center of the chakra system, and the universe “picks” up on the vibe, offering both light and protection. When connection occurs, send light and love to the situation and/or person.
  3. When we choose the inner self, we automatically move into a higher vibration. Higher vibrations displace lower vibrations. When we focus on love and peace, the emotions flow through every level of our consciousness; they flood body, mind, and soul. (This teaches persistence and devotion because the impact and level of higher emotion increases with significant work.)
  4. It ‘s helpful to focus on the possibility of a positive outcome in all situations. It doesn’t always create change, but positive energy helps any situation. (Negative energy increases the problem.)
  5. In quiet moments, see the beauty of the world. Focus on a flower, tree, the sun, or moon. (Focusing on beauty expands our perception of life, and it increases loveliness in the outer world.) Nature heals body and soul.
  6. The energy continually oscillates; it moves up and down. One day, everything is fine. The next day, it’s strange or exhausting. A few days later, it’s fine. (On the lower energy, negative patterns usually come to light. On the high energy days, we experience hope and happiness. In addition to learning about energetic patterns, we learn to conserve our own energy and observe how we use it in the flow of life. (Balance is an important part of the new paradigm.)
  7. Remember the decision to move into light and awakening. Return to it several times each day. This increases our resolve and helps with placement of consciousness.

Full Moon Forecast

Image by Josephine Wall


The full moon appears at 7:51 pm on March 1. The full moon increases growth, fruition, and manifestation. It heightens our sensations and emotions as well as our ability to visual and create change. (It’s interesting to note that emotions and energy increase around the new moon and full moon as we become more sensitive to light.)

Many planets–Sun (outer life), Mercury (communications), Venus (love), Neptune (mysticism), and Chiron (wounded healer)—are placed in Pisces, a water sign. Pisces is the sign of fishes swimming in opposite directions. The sign of Pisces represents love, understanding, and selflessness. On the opposite duality, Pisces can bring an urge to do nothing but float and escape reality—or experience the sensation of becoming a martyr and/or victim.

Pisces can also represent an “old” soul (as most of us are) and karma. Obviously, five planets in Pisces can significantly increase the experience of emotion. In this case, emotion relates to karmic and habitual patterns, the ability to pause and glimpse a pattern—or observe and direct energy in a new way. (It’s always a challenge, and other aspects such as squares with Mars intensify it.)

Fortunately, Moon is placed in Virgo, an earth sign that is grounded and discriminating. It heightens our ability to think, differentiate, and heal. Moon trines (harmonious) Saturn (karma) and Uranus (change, new age), which aids in grounding, creating balanced ideas, and understanding our karma on a physical level. (For example, understanding the stimuli/events that contribute to sleeplessness, unhappiness, poor diet, etc.)

Mercury (communications) is placed in Pisces, which can lead to connection with our dreams and the cosmos—or heightened emotion from negative thoughts. Like fishes swimming in opposite directions, it can lead us to a higher or lower dimension. It conjuncts (close to) Venus (feminine, relationships), and it can heighten our intelligence about love—and loving ourselves. The trine (harmonious) with Jupiter (good fortune expansion) indicates our dreaminess and focus on love can lead to good fortune.

Venus (love, material possessions) is exalted in Pisces, and it can give a feeling of connection and oneness. It can also heighten emotions. Venus trines (harmonious) Jupiter, indicating this state of oneness and universal love can bring good fortune and expand the better aspects of life, Venus conjuncts (close to) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), heightening the odd feeling of moving in and out of reality—a strange beautiful, dreamy feeling.

Mars (action, masculine) is well placed in the fire sign of Sagittarius, but it simply doesn’t work with the rest of the chart. Sun (outer life), Mercury (communications), Venus (love, relationships) square (create tension) with Mars. Mars, placed in a fire sign, wants bold action, and it is frustrated by the flowing, lovely sensation of Pisces.

Additionally, Mars squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion) and Chiron (the wounded healer.) It does trine (harmonious) Uranus, but it’s difficult to take action on the innovative ideas, delivered by Uranus. The challenge lies in knowing frustrations come and go. It’s not necessary to act and/or express emotion in the moment.

Jupiter in Scorpio (good fortune) trines (harmonious) Neptune (illusion, mysticism) and Chiron (the wounded healer), adding positive energies to the chart. (There are a total of 4 trines with Jupiter, which expands opportunity and can lead to greater success.)

Six planets aspect Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which rules Pisces.  Sun, Mercury, and Venus are conjunct (close to), heightening the Piscean influence. Moon in Virgo opposes Neptune, indicating the need to discriminate emotionally between spiritual states and illusion. Mercury squares Neptune, confusing the issue and clouding our ability to differentiate truth and illusion, and Jupiter’s trine with Neptune, increases positive energy and a state of hopefulness.

Uranus (sudden change, awakening) will change signs in May, and this shift can feel like Mercury retrograde when it slows electronics and/or creates small inconveniences. It can also make emotions and thoughts oscillate from low to high—and vice versa. (Fortunately, Uranus responds quickly to positive visualization.) Uranus remains square Pluto as it has periodically since 2012.


  • Many planets in Pisces can align the mind and emotions with higher love and mysticism—or exacerbate lower emotions and anxious thoughts. We become more intuitive with many planets in Pisces.
  • The impetus of the chart points to overcoming karmic patterns of thought and emotion. The goal is finding “love” and greater universal connection.
  • Mercury (communication) and Venus (love) harmoniously trine Jupiter (good fortune), meaning thoughts and feelings, which focus on love can transmute negativity more easily and bring alignment with success and good fortune.
  • Mars (action) squares many of the Piscean planets, which can cause anger and other low level emotions. Mars (the desire to act) is frustrated by the squares. (We can’t change anything until we know what bothers us. Make a list of frustrations and continue to work on earlier plans. We can talk and make new plans later when Mars is stronger.)
  • An exciting aspect of the chart lies in the power of water (feminine, emotion) to help change the flow of life by finding our universal connection.

Raise Your Vibration, Change Your Life

By raising your vibrations, you can always change how you feel. You may not have the ability to change the situation or other people, but you can alter how it feels. Learning how to alter vibrations is a keystone of spiritual work. When you feel differently, people respond more positively to you. 
Life becomes softer and more peaceful, and the flow of life moves in sync to your higher vibration. Over time, you find that you can change many events in life by using the techniques, which you master through the work.

Here are a few simple suggestions:

  1. Connecting to your inner self and the “light” helps with everything because your frequency (or vibrations in your energy field) become higher. People respond differently. You perceive new solutions, and you feel more peace and contentment. A higher frequency equals better results in daily life (reality.)
  2. Reality alters to match the vibrations in your energy field. When you see an event positively, your perspective changes. It can take time to raise your projection of an event, relationship, or outcome, but this works. Change your perception and change the outcome.
  3. When you can’t change the outcome, you can image sending color or calm energy. Love is easily sent by imagining pink light. You can send it to you, the molecules surrounding you, or a situation. Moving into love and turning events over to the universe often brings resolution. (Accept the resolution and decide you have the strength to move through the situation.)
  4. Focus on the good in your life. You’re alive. You are loved. You have a spiritual connection (or you wouldn’t read this.) You have the ability to change your life. This is powerful knowledge, and few people ever arrive at this place.
  5. Believe in your ability to change your life. Believe in the universe. Know there are spiritual forces such as angels, light, and other people who support and believe in you. Find friends who focus on solutions, take a course, or find a coach. Do something. (Meditating is an action, too.)


  • Meditation is one of the keys to the process. Close your eyes and feel your inner self. (When we don’t think, see, or feel anything, we feel the inner self. We also pull back our energy from life.) If you stay in this space for ten minutes, you will feel the inner self. It feels wonderful and peaceful. This part of the self holds the answers. Commune with it quietly.
  • Hold and feel a visual of what you want to experience. If you want happiness and peace, see yourself in this state. If you feel hopeless, create an image of opportunities flowing into your life. If you’re angry, imagine feeling peaceful. Refuse negative thoughts (about anything) and hold onto your visual for 30 seconds. The “new” energy will eventually replace the old energy.
  • Think about love. Love is the one of the key components of the universe. We are loved unconditionally by the universe. Pink light is also love. We can send pink light to our projects, our body, and the people in our lives. Light and love are higher vibrations. Everything in the universe responds to love and light. As you hold more love and light in your “field”, the universe responds more quickly!

Black Moon/Solar Eclipse


The New “Black” Moon, accompanied by a solar eclipse, appears on February 15 at 4:05 pm. The New Moon represents the void, a time of reflection that includes planning the future and releasing unwanted aspects of the past. It’s a time of stillness before life takes on a new form in the material world.

Eclipses reset our energy with their on/off motion, and it’s helpful to focus the mind on a desirable outcome. At this time, we have the opportunity to reset our energy (through the eclipse) as part of the attainment of higher collective consciousness.

The chart for the New Moon is surprisingly clear. With Sun (outer life), Moon (inner life, emotions), and Mercury (communications, mind) in Aquarius, it’s about experiencing oneness, humanitarian efforts, and moving more deeply into universal love. As with all charts, there are challenges, but they are surmountable.

Sun and Moon in Aquarius are conjunct (close to) Venus (love, feminine). Venus (love, feminine, material possessions) is placed in Pisces, where it is exalted, opening our being to the softer waves of love. Venus conjuncts (close) Neptune (Illusion, mysticism), eliciting dreams of personal and universal love. Neptune rules water (emotion), and this aspect hints at the power of overcoming obstacles (in this chart) by moving into the sea of collective love.

Venus (love, feminine) squares (tension) Mars (male, action) in Sagittarius. When Mars is placed in a fire sign, it’s passionate and energetic. Mars longs for action while Venus wants to dream about love and float on gentle waves of energy. In many ways, this square represents an aspect of human duality—the desire to act on ambition in the physical world (Mars) and the need to relax and rest on the harmony of the spiritual world. (Many of us long for resolution and integration of these two qualities, which will come at a future date.)

Mars (male action) squares Neptune, intensifying the conflict between the desire for peace and mysticism and the need to make changes in the physical world. Both states are needed in our spiritual/physical existence. Squares such as these with Venus/Mars/Neptune ask us to find a harmonious resolution. (It may be helpful to internalize the energies of love (Venus/Neptune) and collective consciousness before taking action in the outer world.)

With these aspects, Sun (outer life), Moon (inner life, emotions) and Mercury (communications, mind) square (tension) Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) in Scorpio.  In this case, Jupiter’s good and expansive nature may work against us. Sun square Jupiter refers to exaggeration, excess, or over-promising. Moon square Jupiter can refer to excessive generosity and/or giving too much to help others—or seeing too much good in others and not the truth. Mercury (mind, communications) square Jupiter can help in creating large, wonderful plans, but they are not usually practical or wise. (Review them in a couple of weeks!)

Jupiter (expansion, beneficial) trines (beneficial)  Neptune (mysticism, idealism) in Pisces, expanding interest about the spiritual path and leading our consciousness into idealistic endeavors. Often, we meet new and different people and/or have new experiences. The trine encourages openness and personal growth.

Uranus is preparing to move into the sign of Taurus. It’s the ruler of this Age and exerts a great deal of influence. It may feel like Mercury retrograde occasionally when traffic suddenly becomes heavy, or the computer works slowly, but it’s the transition of this time. Uranus’ square with Pluto will remain until May. As part of our growth, the two planets ask us to look at the underworld and transform whatever we see into light–or into greater understanding.


  1. The solar eclipse offers another opportunity to reset our minds on a higher ideal.
  2. Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Aquarius attune our consciousness to collective consciousness, changes made through the mind, oneness, and group endeavors.
  3. Venus is exalted in Pisces, deepening our ability to feel and experience love on a cosmic level. This is deepened by Venus’s conjunction with Neptune, the planet that connects everyone on a emotional/astral level. (We may feel more intuitive.)
  4. We’re looking for balance between the activity of the outer world and the quiet contemplation of the inner world. (Venus squares Mars, and Mars squares Neptune.)
  5. The caution is about excess–giving to much, promising too much, and making plans that are too large and not realistic.
  6. Overall, it’s a lovely chart, which can take us into deeper realization and connection with the “all”.

Art of Conscious Creation


There is a real art to conscious creation. It is taught in alchemy and many branches of metaphysics. The methodology is real, but it must be learned and applied. I am presenting these concepts for those who understand that creating change in the world is only accomplished through changing one’s perceptions, thoughts, emotions and sensations. This article presents a basic outline of simple techniques that are easily applied through practice and self-observation.

Meditation, which is the reception of higher spiritual energy, can also lend insight into the truth of our inner selves, the path of inner knowing or wisdom. This place of inner knowing deepens our faith and belief in a positive outcome. Through sensing this beautiful place “within”, the possibility of a beautiful “real world” can become a viable reality. This is a reality that we not only experience, but can also share to enliven and enrich others’ experiences of the world.

If we focus on lack of love, prosperity or joy in our lives, then we naturally create more of an undesirable state. When we speak about our negative feelings that surround an unhappy state of mind, we create a vibration with our voice, which is sound or frequency that reinforces the appearance of the undesirable state.

The attraction factor of energetic outcome could be called concentration or intent. The creation of positive or negative outcome is achieved through repetition of the focus of the mind, particularly through the experience of strong emotions or sensations. Any intense thought pattern will eventually evoke an emotional state. This will create either physical tension or relaxation in the body. The emotional and physical responses will determine the creation of a positive or negative outcome.

Our proclivity is to create the future through the projection of memories, thoughts and feelings into our “perception of the future”. We generally project our consciousness without awareness of what or how we create. A classic example of unconscious creation can be found by reviewing at any recurrent problem in our lives. This tendency is easily visible if we notice how many times each day that we experience negative thoughts or feelings about the problem. How many times have we felt guilt over a small social blunder? We keep the negative energy around us by focusing on it.

Emotions are feelings, and thoughts, pictures; together they create holograms or powerful mental/emotional images. It is impossible to perform any action without a hologram, and we “program” ourselves with our holograms, so that they become almost automatic, like tying our shoes. In other words, our reality is perpetuated by holograms, which are often subconscious.

Without awareness, we assemble a life based on memories. We expect that our lives will be the same tomorrow — but perhaps we will be older! We actually create our lives on this basis. We expect to wake in the same bed, the same house, the same car, and have the same friends. Our expectations are the form or structure that we use to create the present.

In creating our future, we must experience the exact opposite of an undesirable state — through “creating” positive thoughts and feelings. By calming the emotions or projecting a positive outcome into the future, it is possible to change the outcome of our lives. People usually experience difficulty with creative consciousness because they only think “inside of the box”. Thinking “inside of the box” tends to be linear — assuming that same problem can always be solved in the same manner.

As human beings, we are conditioned by our society to focus our minds negatively. We believe that money is limited; love diminishes over time; we will age a certain amount at a certain age; the destruction of the earth is imminent; and happiness may only be experienced briefly. Why focus on these thoughts when it is possible to entertain a joyous, beautiful reality?

When we choose to focus on positive holograms, reality is naturally altered in a lovely way. An act of will is necessary to create the possibility of this beautiful, joyous reality by retraining the focus of the mind and emotions. It can take time to reprogram holograms, but we can know that our new images are working through the occurrence of positive synchronicity and uplifted emotions. Each moment we have the opportunity to choose what we think is “real”: a wonderful reality or a depressing one. The choice of focus in each moment eventually determines the reality of our experience.

“Thinking out of the box” means feeling and creating pictures or holograms of a desired state that has never or rarely been experienced in our lives. The desired state is created by focusing on positive memories, remembering the positive feelings and thoughts in the present; and, finally, projecting this desired state into the future. (Consciousness and thought have an actual energetic output. Every time we focus on an idea that it is transmitted to others. We have the potential power to create a positive visualization and to share it by simply meditating on it.)

Keep in mind that much of our world, according to esoteric texts, is an illusion or reflection of our thoughts, actions and words. The “real” part of our world is a reflection of the higher parts of our nature. Our perception of the positive aspects of the world relies on our own attunement to our higher nature or true self…

Daily meditation practice is essential in creating active change. A practice should consist of five or ten minutes of focused imagery. In this meditative state, we should see our desired hologram, while experiencing it in the NOW. It is best to visualize the final result, as though we are experiencing the desired reality in the moment.

The manifestation process is quickened by writing down precisely what we want (this forms a mental picture) on an index card. Positive emotional experiences should be written on the other side of the card. Imagine that the two sides of the card come together as one manifestation. Look at the card each night before sleep. Imagine that this happy state is fully realized.

By following these steps, we can create our desired life and actually materialize it by changing our thoughts, feelings and actions. There are many classes, books and practices about manifestation. One of the secrets is listening to what the Universe wants for you, by listening to your heart. This feeling of quiet and peace found within will attune you to the right intentions, thoughts, feelings and actions.

There is always a pivotal point in manifestation — at this point, we begin to ask. “What does the Universe want me to do and what can I do for others?” We begin to look at our lives to see what we can change about our selves, instead of changing others; to see our selves as creators, rather than victims. Our hearts speak to us, opening to the creative message of the Divine.

Deepening Meditation for Manifestation

Technique for Practice

Choose a quiet place for meditation. Try to meditate during the first hour after awakening. Begin with a color — blue or pink seem to be the easiest in the beginning. Focus on the color until you feel, see and have a sense of the color.

Focus on positive feelings….the feeling of accomplishing a goal, the feelings that were present on the best days of your life, or the physical sensations of a beautiful day. Now imagine having achieved your heart’s desire. See it in its final state of completion.

Feel the joy and happiness that you would experience upon completion of the desire. See your self smiling and laughing in the picture. Now let the picture fade away, replacing the image with white light that shines on you and through your body and field.

End the meditation with a reminder that each time you focus that you are moving a step closer to your heart’s desire. YOU ARE DESERVING AND WORTHY OF A WONDERFUL LIFE!

Creating Change from Within


When working on personal dreams, it’s to commit a specific amount of energy to helping the world through action, word, and vision. A few ideas for passive change to help the self–and the world–are listed below.

  • Focus on a personal feeling of peace. Notice how it feels and expand this inner state to the surrounding area. Imagine everyone and everything encompassed n a wave of peace. Feel the peace like waves in an ocean
  • Send pink light to every particle and atom in the space around you. Pink light is unconditional love, and it lifts everything in its sphere. (Sometimes, it’s easier to send pink light as opposed to “love” because we color the feeling of love with many personal preferences.
  • It’s important to learn to pause whenever we feel discordant energy between ourselves and another human being. It’s helpful to pull back our energy and briefly see the other person’s point of view or feeling. From this place, imagine seeing their inner light. (This is simply to clear energy and remove them from our energy field.) In general, pause whenever emotions are strong. Pull back into the inner self.
  • Separate from mass consciousness (lower global consciousness, including emotion) often. The entire world is changing, and it moves between light and darkness. Ask for alignment with the inner self when life feels heavy and difficult. Focus on the feeling of the flow when accompanied by a wave of happiness. (The overall energy should change in an hour or two.)
  • Learn to see the opposite of the difficult side of life. The images in our mind travel very quickly as we become more psychic. If we focus on a negative, world happening, we actually intensify it. It’s helpful to see the opposite of the difficulty, move into the heart, and ask the universe to provide the feeling of an answer. (Of course, it’s also helpful to send the feeling of the answer out into the world. Somewhere, someone is meditating and/or praying. They will receive the feeling and amplify it.)
  • Spend time in nature. Ground the body and take time to see the perfection of leaves, flowers, and wildlife. This practice eases the pressure, aligning body and spirit.
  • Practice self-nurturing. Rest when energy is low; act when energy is high. (There is a new energetic rule. It’s not helpful to send energy or help others when energy is low. It’s the opposite of the Piscean Age. Keep the cup half-full at all times.)
  • Release judgement when possible. It’s fine to have an opinion or belief, but it’s helpful not to inflict it on others.
  • Practice faith, hope, and courage. It takes faith to create strong, positive visions. It takes courage to continue to see them, and it requires faith and hope to make a consistent effort. But it’s also how we learn to believe in ourselves–and our inner work.

Blue Super Moon!

Blue Moon, Blood Moon, Super Moon, and Eclipse appears on Wednesday, January 31, and it has many names and energies. The lunar eclipse will take place at 9:07 am, and we’ll feel the energy for several weeks. (A lunar eclipse is essentially a reset, a motion into darkness, followed by light.(The eclipse may also stir up patterns and/or longings from last summer’s solar eclipse.) All full moons carry the energetic blueprint of fruition, germination, and realization of dreams. A Blue Moon is simply 2 full moons in one month, and a super moon is closer to the earth than usual. At any rate, it’s all powerful!

There is definitely a magical, beneficial energy associated with the moon. Think of extra light permeating through the darkness, bringing additional illumination. That’s part of what this moon can do, and it’s definitely important to believe in our power to make dreams come true.

The Blue Moon Chart presents both challenges and benevolent energy. Moon (inner self, emotions) trines Mars (male, assertion), which harmonizes feelings and actions. Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), energizing our hopes and dreams in a positive sense. Saturn (karma) and Uranus (new age) are trine, increasing our ability to combine the old and new (worlds).

The Blue Moon conveys an equation of rewriting the past, letting go of unwanted aspects of life, and putting the two together in a new form. (Of course, the new form is “life”.) The major aspects of the chart fall in fixed signs, indicating the aspects of the self that are strongly anchored in belief, habit, and feeling. (In general, fixed signs have difficulty altering their point of view.)

Here are the major points of interest:

  1. Much of the chart revolves around fixed signs of Aquarius, Leo, and Scorpio. Sun (outer self), Moon (inner self, emotions), Venus (love, material goods), and Jupiter (good fortune). (Fixed signs tend not to express flexibility or openness to change. They do convey both loyalty and patience.) However, this chart is about finding flexibility and openness with parts of the self, others, and the world.
  2. Sun (outer life) and Venus (love, material goods) in Aquarius are conjunct, heightening our interest in the New Age, which opens the mind and spirit to both new techniques and possibilities. However, Moon (emotions) is placed in the fire sign of Leo.
  3. Moon (emotion) opposes (is opposite) Venus (feminine, love). Our emotions will run “hot”, but Venus in Aquarius is detached. The issue brings up the importance of feeling emotion, but expressing them in a way that brings communion and connection (Venus in Aquarius). It’s quite an equation.
  4. Moon trines (harmonious) Mars (action, male) in Sagittarius, a fire sign. Previously, Mars in Scorpio felt emotional and steamy, but Mars in Sagittarius moves life along at a faster pace. The trine will help in taking action to create and realize goals.
  5. Sun, Moon, and Venus square Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter (expansion) in Scorpio is all about passion and achieving the heart’s desires. Squares can cause tension or feelings of frustration. In this case, the assignment is to discover how we block our desires through how we live our life (Sun), the expression of our emotions (Moon), and how we love and/or define love (Venus).
  6. Mercury (communications) squares Uranus (higher mind, quantum field), so our intuition will not be completely clear. Likely, we’ll receive hints about changing lives or strong feelings about the future. But we won’t get a clear read.
  7.  Obviously, it’s not a crystal clear chart. Many aspects hint at how to merge parts of the outer self for greater connection and unity. But there’s also a mystery, a feeling of where to go–without clear directions. In spiritual work, this is considered “good” because it causes us to look within for answers that are not evident in the outer world.
