New Moon Forecast

 

 

The astrological forecast is much like the weather, moving between gray, stormy days and springlike weather with streaming sunlight. The New Moon forecast resembles a cloudy day with flashes of bright light.  (It may be overcast, but the sun sends reminders of its light.)

The New Moon appears on Friday, December 7.  The overall chart is weighted by water (emotion) and fire (passion) Our power comes from aligning emotion and passion in a positive sense and using the power of the chart to create positive outcomes and our heart-felt desires.  It can feel daunting when experiencing pressure from squares (tension) with Mars (action) and Neptune (mysticism/illusion and sometimes confusion). It’s possible to do this by staying focused through positive emotions like gratitude and using passion to connect with the Divine.

Fortunately, help is found within the chart. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Jupiter (good fortune) are conjunct in Sagittarius, which often brings help and angelic support at the eleventh hour. The conjunctions, which are close placements between planets that heighten their impact, can bring expansion and hope. Sagittarius rules philosophy and long journeys; its key words are “I see”. By aligning with the inner self, we can raise our “vision” above the fray and find solutions through the higher mind.

On the more difficult side of the equation, Sun and Moon square (creating tension) Mars, and this affects our ability to make decisions and move forward in life. (It doesn’t mean we can’t move ahead. It’s simply more difficult than usual.) Sun and Moon also square Neptune in Pisces, which results in many different –sometimes conflicting — feelings and sensations. On the positive, all of the planets are direct with the exception of Uranus

Mercury (communication, thought) is direct at last in Scorpio with the retrograde leaving chaotic energy in its wake.  However, Mercury is well placed with a conjunction with Jupiter, aligning the mind with higher thought and ideas to expand our lives. Mercury also trines (positive, harmonious) Chiron (wounded healer), allowing us to heal on a deeper level through properly connected thought. (For example, we might encounter a challenge but decide an answer is a true possibility. At this point, our mind aligns with the universal mind, and this creates a different outcome.)

Both Venus (love, partnerships) and Mercury are in Scorpio, indicating the importance of seeing beneath the surface in all aspects of life. (These placements have continued for months, asking for alignment of the heart and mind.) The energy is passionate, and this encourages action and/or a change in perception. But the mind and heart have to come together to find the secret information hidden beneath the surface.

Venus (relationships, love) in Scorpio can be jealous and selfish; it can also penetrate into secrets, beliefs, and attitudes for transformation into a higher form. When the planets are uneasy, it’s about learning more about ourselves and finding a deeper state of love, which is sometimes challenging. Venus remains in opposition to Uranus, and this amplifies our feelings about love, freedom, and can also cause sudden change. (Wait until this aspect passes in a month or so to make big changes in relationships. It’s very easy to misunderstand at this point.)

Mars (action, male energy) sits in Pisces, which activates old patterns of resentment, hidden feelings, and strong emotions. Mars in Pisces, a water sign, elicits emotion. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion, good fortune), meaning that it’s difficult to discern the right action for growth. Mars conjuncts Neptune, heightening the fluctuation and waves of emotions and feelings. (Neptune’s involvement in this chart can heighten our intuition.)

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) in Sagittarius squares Neptune (mysticism, idealism), asking us to combine a desire to move with our quest while pondering the unseen in our personal universe. Neptune gives a “foggy” feeling, making it necessary to listen to our heart before moving in new directions.

Saturn (karma, discipline) remains in Capricorn (as it will for the next 2 years), and it gives a harsh, cold feeling along with the need to succeed in the outer world. We see it in egoic nature of many industrialists in the outer world, but Saturn always wants us to learn true spiritual lessons and convey those as our work in the world.

Uranus (New Age, quantum field) returned to Aries, the male beginning of a new cosmic cycle. Uranus squares Pluto in Capricorn as it has for the past few years. It asks for looking at the subterranean   river of personal and global psyches while remaining willing to transmute the flux into a new form. (Uranus offers the quantum field for transformation; Pluto asks us to travel deep into the darkness and find the answers there.) It’s illuminating to see the truth, but it’s not usually easy. (Uranus is in retrograde, which occasionally makes life feel like a roller coaster with sudden, erratic change.)

 

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun and Moon are on Sagittarius 16, “Sea Gulls Fly Around a Ship Looking for Food.” The symbol speaks of seagulls feeding on fish from a ship. It hints of dependence or co-dependence. In the spiritual quest, we try to help others by connecting them to the wisdom of the inner self—not through dependence. As we walk on our path, it becomes important to separate from those who lean on our energy and refuse to grow—or to observe the relationship at the least.

Mercury sits on Scorpio 28

Venus is placed on Scorpio 2, “A Broken Bottle and Spilled Perfume” could refer to lost loves in the past or situations that closed the heart. We can smell the fragrance, but the vessel is no longer there. (Perfume also stirs olfactory memories from the past. Fortunately, we can recall the energy from the past into the moment.)

Mars is on Pisces 13, “The King of Fairies Approaching His Domain”. It’s a wonderful symbol, speaking of power in the unseen world. Mars conjuncts Neptune in this chart so it may be possible to summon up the beautiful energies of hidden worlds.

Jupiter sits on Sagittarius 7, “Cupid Knocking on the Human Heart.” Obviously, it’s about overcoming pain and hurt from the past so we can open to love. Love comes from the universe on an unconditional basis if we open to receive. As part of this process, new people arrive in our lives to share love, and/or old relationships are rekindled in a new way.

New Moon Forecast

 

 

The New Moon marks the time of the void when it’s wise to rest and contemplate life for a day or two while we think about our dreams and plans. (Absolutely, nothing grows in the garden on the new moon; it takes time for the energy to rise.) The New Moon energy is a time of deep stillness before the life force flows into form as the moon waxes.

The New Moon appears at 11:01 am on Wednesday, November 7. This chart speaks to our inner self and encourages pursuit of the spiritual quest. However, there are many confusing aspects that slow action, perception, and progress. Sun and Moon (life, feelings, and emotions) push us in the direction of our dreams, but they square Mars (male, action), which confuses and slows action. Venus remains retrograde, and Mercury is already in the shadow of its next retrograde, which occurs on the day of Venus moving direct. Venus also squares the North and South Nodes.

Sun and Moon in Scorpio form a beautiful trine with Neptune (mysticism/illusion), which heightens our ability to feel and perceive our spiritual direction. It increases our sensitivity to beauty and intensifies our night dreams. This aspect heightens intuition, helps with the flow of emotions, and makes it easier to see behind the “veil”. It also makes it easier to hear to our inner voice, which is needed to travel successfully through the next week or so.  (If we use the energy, it’s helpful with art and creative endeavors.) Obviously, it softens the square with Mars.

Mercury (communications) is moving into expansive Sagittarius, a fire sign, before moving into retrograde on November 16. The current placement helps with spiritual pursuits and attaining higher knowledge. It can aid with focus with our higher dreams. Mercury conjuncts Jupiter (expansion, good fortune), and acts as an indication that right thoughts can lead us forward. But Mercury squares Neptune (illusion, mysticism), confusing our ability to discern illusion from truth.

Venus (feminine, beauty) sits in Libra, an air sign ruling balance and harmony. Venus is softer and gentle in this position, but it can bring difficulty with expressing our personal truth, which has been a challenge with the continuing retrograde. (It makes difficult for people that we love to hear us during Venus retrograde, and communication can feel confusing. We also continue to review how we want to feel and receive love for another week until Venus moves direct.)

Venus trines (harmonious) Mars (male, action), which eases the relationship between male/female and yin/yang. Venus opposes Uranus, causing friction between love (in some form) and erratic action. (Uranus can also represent awakening so it’s possible to see a bigger view of life.) Venus squares (tension) Pluto, which often represents obsession, power, or strong desires, and this brings a bigger lesson to light. It’s important to train our minds to release control, and let the universe teach us to grasp the beauty of surrender and the blessings that can follow.

Venus squares the nodes of the Moon. The North Node, representing our spiritual direction, is in Cancer, a water sign ruling nurturing, devotion, and sensitivity. Venus symbolizes love, and a square places pressure. We’re asked to become more compassionate and caring to create happiness and security in life. (In some way, we have obstacles between our definition of love and caring without controlling.) South Node speaks of habits and rituals used in the past, which are no longer as useful. It’s placed in Capricorn, an earth sign, which is about practicality and our place in the world.

Mars (action, male) squares Jupiter (expansion, good fortune), and this creates tension between our desire to take action and the benevolent expression of Jupiter, which expands the good around our endeavors. (Sun/Moon square Mars frustrates our desire and plans for action.) Our positive actions always count – even when we can’t see it – and it’s important to continue taking small steps for another time in the not too distant future when Jupiter will bless our efforts.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) will move into Sagittarius on November 9, which helps with our spiritual quest, accelerating our ability to focus on the path. Spiritual studies, freedom with communications, and creating ease with travel. On the other side, Jupiter in Sagittarius expands the object in the lens of the mind, which can create greater tension with divisive groups or bring unity. (It’s dependent on the focus of our minds and hearts.)

Saturn (karma, time) trines (harmonious) Uranus, which represents the New Age, innovative inventions, and methods of thinking in an original way. (Using our imagination is one of the best ways of harnessing this energy.)

Uranus, the planet of change and awakening, moves back to the past with a reentry to Aries, a fire sign. Uranus is volatile in fire, with focus on the self. We’ll probably feel the wacky energy of the past seven years with the (brief return) of this cycle.

Neptune (mysticism, illusion) flows in waves of spiritual love with this aspect. It helps in transcending the limitations of the physical world through increased emotional connection in deep or loving relationships.

Chiron, the wounded healer, moved back into Pisces, bringing back the wounds and karma of the Piscean Age. It’s another opportunity to move beyond old stories, patterns, and habits before moving into another year. Mercury (communications) and Jupiter (good fortune) trine Chiron, and this helps in making positive mental realizations about the past – and our involvement with it. Saturn (limitation) squares Chiron, meaning we may only see the blocks but not move through them (yet).

Tips:

  1. Finding, following, and listening to our inner self is the test of this chart. There are many energies, which move in numerous directions, and we simply want to move in the direction of the light. (Sun/Moon trine Neptune helps with this.)
  2. Communications are not clear. Mercury (communications, messages) squares Neptune (mysticism/illusion), making it difficult to read and interpret the information that we receive. (Listen with the heart.) Mercury moves retrograde next week.
  3. Venus is all over the place; it trines Mars (action), opposes Uranus (sudden change, awakening), and squares the Nodes (higher purpose and rituals depended upon on the past.) In other words, our thoughts and feelings about love will probably oscillate. On the positive, Venus moves direct in another week!
  4. Mars, the action planet, has squares with Sun/Moon and Jupiter. Try to remember that spiritual actions always count. Sometimes, we have to wait for the right “weather” or pass through the test of time, but they count.
  5. Jupiter will soon move into Sagittarius, which should lighten life a bit – at least.

Sabian Symbols, based on Lynda Hill’s work 

Sun and Moon are on Scorpio 16, “A Girl’s Face Breaking into a Smile.” The image denotes joy, which can come from pleasant and familiar aspects of life, an unexpected surprise and/or love. A girl smiling indicates pleasure and conveys light. It’s particularly apt when considering Sun/Moon’s benevolent trine with Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which aids in aligning with universal wisdom and love.

Mercury is on Sagittarius 9, “A Mother Leads a Small Child Step by Step up the Stairs.” The image depicts a loving, maternal presence that supports and protects a child moving to a higher level in a building or home. Mercury can represent the higher or lower mind. The symbol could speak of the higher mind leading the more undeveloped parts of the self to higher level.

Venus is retrograde on Libra 27, An Airplane Flies High in the Bright Sky.” It’s possible to fly above our difficulties through a state of unconditional love. It’s also possible to evade the issues in our life by avoiding or sailing above them.

Mars sits on Aquarius 28, “A Garage Man Testing a Car Battery with a Hydrometer.” A hydrometer reads the level of fluids (emotion), and cars can represent how we travel through life. Batteries refer to the distribution of energy. Since this symbol refers to Mars, it indicates the necessity of looking at our movement through life, our emotions, and placement of energy to move to the next level or take the next step.

Jupiter is placed on Scorpio 30, “Children in Halloween Costumes Indulging in Pranks”. The symbol can refer to the happiness of children when we move through special times in the world as well as those who use these times for darkness and negativity.

New Moon Forecast: Finding More Love

 

The New Moon appears on October 8, and its energy will extend for 10-14 days. It’s truly an interesting chart with an emphasis on love overcoming darkness – and balancing fluctuating energy. Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Libra square Pluto, the dark planet that is about power, control, and transmutation, and Venus is retrograde through November 16.

There are two views of life. The first involves the obtainment of abundance and pleasure on the material level; the second speaks about inner happiness and the pursuit of the soul. The soul journey is about traveling through Plutonian darkness, discovering the truth, and using it to transmute life into higher level.

Ruled by Venus, Libra is a kind and gentle sign. Libra bestows a romantic vibration; they love beauty, harmony, and peace. They are often diplomatic, just, and fair. Libra is represented by the scales, and they can often be unreliable as their energy moves up and down with small changes and events. They may also have difficulty with decisions.

Venus in Scorpio wants to know the truth (about everything, particularly feelings associated with love) while Sun in Libra desires light, peaceful sensations of harmony and joy. Venus in retrograde pulls in strange feelings about love, friends from the past (which is good), and the desire for healing the past to create deeper spiritual/personal connection.

Venus is usually associated with the happy, pleasant aspects of life such as loving relationships, beauty (spiritual and aesthetic), and material possessions. When Venus is retrograde, it’s about going deeper to discover what prevents creating more goodness as well as how to find the balance of pleasure on a soul level. (It’s also NOT time to change your hair, overall look, or do anything dramatic–or fall in love.)

The quest is about examining the strange feelings that occur in relationships when we know everything is not exactly right. It’s about seeing partnerships and relationships through eye of the inner self to discover true alignment with the heart. (If we stay with people who don’t want to grow, we can’t grow. If we have a soul contract with a person, we need boundaries.) We can reevaluate boundaries and look for a lighter feeling about love, and ask for change when we can’t find the strength.

Here’s the interesting part. Pluto holds deep, dark secrets, but it also gives the power of strength and commitment to move through blocks and hidden issues from the past.  Sun, Moon and Mercury form squares, which increase our desire to perceive the hidden information that slows our growth. However, we have use love to complete the journey. (It’s not about what’s bad or good. It’s about finding the energetic truth of self and moving into alignment with it.)

If we complete the journey, there’s more passion, love, and an end to old soul contracts that bind us to behavior, which is exhibited as patterns. It creates more harmony and airs tired emotions. The shift opens us to connections with people who want to grow and share their hearts and inner peace.

Let’s look at the remainder of the chart. Mars is in Aquarius, creating an odd mix of focused thought and fixed emotion. On the positive, it trines the Sun and Moon, allowing for harmony with life, emotion, and thoughts. Mars is passion, action, and assertion, and it squares Uranus, causing outbursts of anger and strong emotions around many issues. (We’ve dealt with it throughout the year, and the best attitude is neutralize, examine, and tone it down before taking action.)

Mercury (thought, communications) and Venus (relationships) oppose Uranus (sudden change, awakening). The energy can take us off course into sharp, sudden feelings and thoughts, creating erratic change, or we can observe (briefly) by noticing the two sides of the self, and this is part of the process of awakening. (Only the inner self can observe, and this brings us back into the present moment with greater knowing.)

Neptune

Venus trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which heightens intuition and the ability to perceive beauty in life. It also opens the door to perceptions about the unseen, mystical world. Jupiter (good fortune) trines Neptune, bringing a harmonious feeling about resolving issues from the past to create a better future. The two positive aspects encourage taking time to see the beauty of love, spirituality, and the incredible mix of  polar forces on this planet – and how we grow from them.

Notes:

  • New Moons bring a period of void when life in nature remains very quiet for 2-3 days. (I know from observation of nature and gardening.) It’s a time for reflection before moving forward.
  • Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (communications, mind) are in Libra, making life seem very lovely with a balance of light and shadows. There is a strong tendency to desire harmony and balance.
  • Venus is retrograde through Nov. 16. Her energy is very different from the prevalent Libran energy. Venus in Scorpio wants to know the truth about relationships and love. It’s important to re-evaluate relationships at an energetic level. What’s the exchange of energy? Is a relationship fulfilling or depleting? Is it the result of a soul contract? If so, do both parties want growth? Where are boundaries needed?
  • Oddly, the universe is strangely insistent about the quality of relationships and the depth of love. It’s a difficult topic for humans – and an important area of inner growth.
  • Sun, Moon, and Mercury square Pluto (subconscious, transmutation), which brings hidden darkness to the surface. When we are willing to look at our own darkness, we can transmute it.
  • The next few weeks will be about balancing harmony, pleasure, and love with energetic truth hidden beneath the surface. The goal is a gestalt moment that opens consciousness to greater love and alters our relationship(s) with those who hold us back.

Sabian Symbols

Sun and Moon are on Libra 16, “After the Storms of Winter, A Boat Landing Stands in Need of Reconstruction”.  The symbol refers to quieter weather, associated with spring and growth, which differs from the “storm” of eclipses and retrograde planets in recent months. Boat landings are a place where to find safe harbor after time spent on water, and there is a need to make it secure and solid.

Mercury is on Libra 29. Mercury is thought and communication, and it speaks about “Mankind’s Vast Enduring Effort for Knowledge Transferable from Generation to Generation.” On the highest level, it’s about consciously awakening, which connects us to universal knowledge. This pursuit brings strength, kindness, and the use of light to heal, build, and change life.

Venus sits on Scorpio 11, “A Drowning Man Is Being Rescued.” It seems an apt for a retrograde Venus when we’re asked to review our past (and past lives) and lift ourselves into higher emotions and a better life.

Water is emotion in metaphysics, and we lift ourselves into clean, flowing water (or love) by rising above the murky issues of relationships and into a state of clear consciousness.

Mars is placed on Aquarius 10, “A Man Who Had for a Time Become the Embodiment of an Ideal Is Made to Realize that as a Person He Is Not This Ideal.” Ultimately, we can only become “ourselves”; it’s impossible to become an ideal or reflection of anything in the world. We’re simply an individual expression of a beautiful, perfect universal force, and this realization sets us free.

Jupiter sits on Scorpio 24, “Crowds Coming Down the Mountain to Listen to One Inspired Man”. The image depicts the sharing of a gift or wisdom with a group of people. There are two aspects to the image. One is the speaker who gives, and the other is the crowd, who receives.

It may be time to share a gift, receive wisdom from another person, or decide to listen to our inner voice.

New Moon Forecast

 

The New Moon appears at 2:01 pm on Sunday, September 9. New Moons are typically for releasing the past and planning the future. They bring the energy of the “void”, a pause before creating in the next cycle of the moon. (The Full and New Moon tend to feel more intense, which is representative of the impact of light and darkness.) With only three planets in retrograde, it’s time to begin a cycle of moving forward.

Sun, Moon, and Mercury are in Virgo, which can indicate service, arcane truth, and emphasis on work. Virgo is an earth sign, and it rules the body, placing particular emphasis on health. All three planets oppose Neptune (wounded healer) in Pisces, and Sun and Moon trine Pluto (subconscious, regeneration.) The sign of Pisces can refer to the past age; it also rules mysticism and sacrifice. In past ages, there was an emphasis on personal sacrifice, which included helping others (and forgetting the self.) In the Aquarian Age, we are becoming aware of the need for balanced giving.

Virgo loves to move through life by focusing on details and giving directions; Pisces flows through life with eyes closed and navigates through intuition. Both skills will be needed to glide through life for the next few days.

A Grand Trine with Mercury (communications), Saturn (time, karma), and Uranus (awakening, sudden change) can help with finding our way through the dichotomy of the chart. (Every chart is about learning to live in the physical and spiritual world simultaneously.) Mercury heightens our ability to listen to the higher mind. Saturn represents the past, and Uranus symbolizes the future. By focusing on the inner self and listening to its guidance, we can successfully and harmoniously blend the lessons of the past, and the pull of the future. (It’s how we create a new life on a spiritual level.)

Venus is passionate in Scorpio, heightening magnetic and possessive feelings. Venus is not as agreeable when placed in Scorpio; she squares Mars (male, energy) and opposes Uranus (sudden change, awakening). When Venus squares Mars, it makes for disagreements between the male (action) and female (loving) sides of the self. Venus opposite Uranus can create sudden, impulsive action and misunderstandings with other people and loved ones.

Mars (male, energy) in Capricorn remains square Uranus (sudden change, New Age). It causes the sensation of a build-up of energy that wants to run rampant through life with uneasy emotions. Of course, we know better, and we have to deal with the energy by counting to 10 or running around the block. (It begins to subside around Sept. 18.)

Jupiter in Scorpio continues to ask for vigilance in seeking the truth as to why events occur in a particular way and people continue to act in a repetitive fashion. When we understand how our energy affects the cyclical events, we gain a great deal of freedom. As the planet of good fortune and expansion, Jupiter asks for insights and self-reflection so we can broaden our base of understanding. It’s how we move into good fortune by creating success through the happiness of aligning with the positive in life.

Jupiter (good fortune) in Scorpio trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces, which brings a light-hearted optimistic feeling about the future and life. By seeing the truth (Jupiter/Scorpio), we move through the illusion in life to create and experience beauty, elated emotion, and the sensation of flowing into the mystical aspects of life.

Saturn moved direct earlier in the week. In this chart, Saturn is a supportive planet that encourages positive use of structure, lessons, and influential memories. Saturn (karma, limitation) trines Uranus (sudden change, new age), bringing a beneficial energy and practical insights into building a new world based on the best of the old world while intuitively perceiving the possible benefits of the new world.

Sun and Moon in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn increase our potential of fathoming secrets hidden within the earth. Sun and Moon in Virgo heighten our ability to read information based on small details (physically and spiritually), and Pluto rules power and the underworld. With many good aspects found in earth signs, it may be possible to discover nature’s secrets – or to receive her guidance. The aspect also heightens our ability to use power wisely and feel life more intensely.

 

Sabian Symbols, based on Lynda Hill’s interpretations

Sun/Moon are on Virgo 18, “Two Girls Playing with An Ouija Board”. There’s a desire to use clairvoyant abilities to connect or contact the spirit world. The Ouija Board denotes a tool for divination. But divination only works when the mind and spirit are focused together on the question—and are open to the answer. The symbol advises wise seeking to avoid incorrect and/or misleading information to flow in from the spirit world as with an Ouija Board.

Mercury sits on Virgo 7, “A Harem”.  The feminine awakening presents an image of strong women working together to create balance and nurturing in the world. Obviously, the goal is living and working together in harmony to create a positive existence.

The image of a harem speaks of the problems of many women living together such as competitiveness, jealousy, and disagreements. The symbol points to the need to work through feminine weaknesses through awareness while developing strength and harmony.

Venus is on Scorpio 1, “A Sightseeing Bus filled with Tourists”. The symbol depicts traveling with others to known destination but with a lack of awareness of the sights, sounds, and passengers. The conditions are unknown, and experiences are imagined – to be determined during the journey. In many ways, a spiritual journey is the same. We know a more enlightened state is the destination but are unaware of what it entails.

Mars is on Capricorn 30, “Directors of a Large Firm Meet in Secret Conference.” The imagery hints at the concept of leaders deciding the future for others, possibly considering their needs – or not. It can also indicate subconscious forces that tend to determine events in life.

New Super Moon and Solar Eclipse

 

A Solar Eclipse, the last of three eclipses, falls on the New Moon on August 11. Eclipses and New Moons are about new beginnings and endings. We enter a void, and, then life expands as the New Moon moves into fullness. The void will feel more intense because the moon is particularly close to earth, which is known as a Super New Moon. At the same, we’re moving through the Lion’s Gate, the annual influx of solar light, during August 8-12.

This eclipse is not about transformation into higher realms. The aspects ask us to see the bigger truths beneath the surface. The New Moon/Eclipse chart focuses on the practical aspects of life – the art of staying centered in the heart space when life is chaotic, difficult, or stressful. (The heart and inner self can always find the right action; the challenge is dealing with the personality’s habitual reactions to life.)

With five planets in fire–Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, and Chiron–there is much passion and heat. Appropriately, Sun (outer self), Moon (inner self), and Mercury (mind) are conjunct in Leo, inciting courage, loyalty, and a desire to follow the heart.

Three strong squares appear between Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (mind), and Jupiter (good fortune, expansion). According to texts, Jupiter knows the right path for our illumination, blessings, and inner growth. Jupiter is placed in Scorpio, and its skill lies seeing the truth beneath the surface – and applying it to transmute our lives into a higher form.

These three squares create tension between the inner self and the part of the self that lacks alignment with our soul, particularly on the level of life (Sun), emotions (Moon), and Mercury (thought/communication). All of the planets fall in fixed signs (Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio), indicating the importance of seeing life from a different, broader perspective and an open mind. (Moving into love requires seeing where we are distanced from it such as  through people, places, and perception. The challenge is recognizing the truth and making appropriate changes.)

Mars (energy, assertion, male) squares Uranus (awakening, sudden change). Uranus loves change, and Mars interprets this as reaction on the physical and emotional level. With seven planets in retrograde, the Mars/Uranus square is like a subterranean channel with energy flowing beneath the surface that can explode when brought to the surface unless it is wisely directed.

Venus (feminine, love, relationships) is beautifully placed in Libra, accentuating our ability to perceive beauty, balance, and fairness. Venus trines (harmonious) Mars in Aquarius, bringing harmony between the male/female sides of the self – as well as partnerships and relationships. Venus squares Saturn in Capricorn, bringing tension based on the past (and karma) to the surface for clearing. (Again, it’s another opportunity to see how beliefs and experience cloud perceptions.)

  Jupiter

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) trines Neptune (illusion, mysticism), imbuing the forecast with positive energy and hopefulness. Jupiter sextiles Pluto (subconscious, transmutation), helping with the right use of power and strength. Saturn (time, limitation) trines Uranus (sudden change, awakening), creating a harmonious background for overcoming karma and moving into the beauty and transcendence of awakening.

Uranus moved into Taurus (earth) in May, and volcanoes erupt in Hawaii while fires rage in California, Greece, and England. On another level, a prolific number of  hatchlings (in my lifetime) of birds and reptiles (snakes, lizards, frogs) appeared in late May. For those of us who spend hours in nature, the Earth feels wonderfully alive.

 

Notes:

  • Fortunately, we’ll receive light from the Lion’s Gate while passing through the darkness of the New Moon, and trines with Venus/Mars, Jupiter/Neptune, and Saturn/Uranus mitigate the intense energy of squares with Sun/Moon/Mercury and Jupiter.
  • The challenge lies in remaining neutral when previously “unseen” causes of frustration and unhappiness become appear. By returning to the heart, we can find our way and gently navigate through obstacles through visualization, careful conversations, and a focus on love. It’s part of living on a higher level, but it’s never easy.
  • Mars (assertion, male) squares Uranus (sudden change, awakening), creating tension and upset. This aspect encourages quick action and retort and can create upsetting emotions. It’s about reaction as opposed to response. When a change or conversation is needed, wait and meditate on it for several days. (Emotions translate poorly while this aspect is active. Aspect continues through September 18.)
  • Venus encourages us to find love in balance, harmony, and beauty. Part of the vision of the inner self comes from contemplation of beauty and how it relates to the heart. Take time to reflect on the beauty of the people, landscape, and simple pleasures like the sun and moon.
  • Much of the chart is about moving through our fixed ideas about life, people, and the way in which live. In the big picture, it’s marvelous to let go of the small aspects of life and embrace the larger possibilities.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sabian Symbols provide an interpretation of the placement of the planet in a particular sign. Every sign (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, etc) has thirty degrees. Each degree has a specific meaning.

Sun and Moon are placed on Leo 19, “A Houseboat Party Crowded with Revelers; The Water Reflects Its Lights.” The symbol feels appropriate for the eclipse. Many of us are gathered together on a vessel amidst the water, which represents emotion. Sometimes, it may seem like a party as we move together in the New Age. Other times, we’re confined within the group energy of the people around us, and their energy is amplified and reflected by the pond, lake, or sea.

Mercury is on Leo 15, “A Street Pageant Moving Along a Street Packed with People.” The imagery of an exciting group event repeats with Mercury, which rules mind and communications. We can observe or participate in the pageant, find unity or feel pressed by the crowd, or celebrate or withdraw.

Venus sits on Libra 5, “A Man Teaching The True Inner Knowledge Of The New World To His Students”. This symbol seems self-evident. As we awaken, it is love that leads us to true inner knowledge, teachers, and the perception of the New World.  (Stay aligned with the heart.)

Mars is on Aquarius 1, “A Woman Reading Tea Leaves.” Mars is all about action; it loves reaction, arguments, and movement into the next brawl. This symbol encourages focusing on the direction of the intuitive self by deciphering messages that may not always make sense in the outer world. Intuitive messages are often confusing on the surface but offer true guidance through hints and feelings.

Jupiter sits on Scorpio 15, “Children Playing Around Five Mounds of Sand.” The five mounds of sand represent the 5 elements, which is sometimes referred to as the pentacle. In short, the children do not understand the power of symbols or their inherent ability to create change in the physical world through occult work. (This symbol may refer to us because Jupiter squares the Sun, Moon, and Mercury in this chart.  Perhaps, part of our spiritual maturity comes through the perception of our abilities.)

New Moon and Partial Solar Eclipse Forecast

 

The New Moon appears on July 12 at 10:47 pm. It’s a Super New Moon, meaning that the moon is very close to the earth, and the darkness or void – associated with this moon phase – will feel more profound than usual. It’s a complex chart with challenges, positive and harmonizing aspects such as a Grand Trine, and many retrograde planets.

A partial solar eclipse on the evening of July 13 adds to the intensity. Eclipses act as a reset, an opportunity to align with the intentions of the inner self. Our energy goes on and off with the motion of the sun/moon. It’s a bit like throwing a circuit breaker. (Fortunately, we can focus and intend the placement of our consciousness for the reboot.)

Sun and Moon

Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) are placed on the same degree of Cancer, a water sign ruling the sea, the home, and the mother.  Self-nourishment, reflection, security, and the flow of feminine energy are positive qualities that are amplified by Sun/Moon in Cancer. Sun and Moon trine (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune) and Neptune (mysticism, illusion), encouraging positive waves of emotion.

Sun and Moon oppose Pluto, planet of the subconscious, power, and transmutation. This challenging aspect brings awareness of oppression, strong (sometimes inappropriate) emotions, and manipulation (Plutonian qualities). By discovering and acting on our ability to move through the aspects of life that cause suffering, we can transform our lives.

Awakening involves awareness of the painful memories and patterns in life. It’s necessary to confront and heal old wounds to move fully into the light. The process requires courage, but it also opens life to light and love.

(For example, childhood trauma can result in specific limitations, but we can understand that our emotions and thoughts create repetitive situations and patterns. through heightened awareness, we can change our thoughts and emotions. This type of work alters the self, which can result in transformation.)

Thoughts and Actions

Mercury (mind, communications) sits in Leo, a fire sign ruling the heart. This placement causes strong, passionate thoughts, which are not always appropriate. Speaking from the heart – or about passionate quests – requires reflection to be clearly understood by others. It’s important to cool down the drama and think about the perception/feelings of the other person before sending an email, making a phone call, or sharing frank thoughts and feelings.

Additionally, Mercury squares (tension) Mars, making it more difficult to align thought and action. (Squares can help in overcoming personal limitations; the pressure can push us through a lack of perception.) Mercury squares Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), and this aspect emphasizes the importance of contemplating strong feelings and thoughts to discover the intention beneath them (intention, anger, fear, or the inner self) before taking action.

Mars (male, assertion, action) is placed in Aquarius, an air sign that prefers thought to action. (Mars is all about action.) This placement can cause thoughts  to build within, creating chaotic reactions and unsure actions. Mars squares Jupiter (good fortune), indicating much thought and little action are not conducive to positive change. Mars squares Uranus (sudden change, awakening), evoking strong, sudden action in response to unexpressed feelings and emotions. (Take time to think of the best way to express feelings and thoughts – and refrain from acting spontaneously on strong emotions.)

Both Mercury (thought) and Mars (action) are in fixed signs, increasing the likelihood of acting on old patterns or remaining inflexible with other people’s point of view. Mercury in Leo tends to focus on thoughts pertaining to personal feelings, and Mars in Aquarius is humanitarian but not always open to a larger point of view or a different possibility. By developing a greater awareness of the need for flexibility, it’s possible to work through the potential tension and conflict of the opposition between the two signs.

Venus: Love Leads the Way

Venus is placed in Virgo, represented by the virgin and/or high priestess. In this earth sign, Venus — ruler of the feminine, love, and material goods — is grounded and giving. Venus forms a Grand Trine with Saturn (time, karma) and Uranus (sudden, awakening), which helps to lift the entire chart.

Grand Trines aid with manifestation and aligning with the positive side of life. Venus deepens love, heightens awareness of beauty, and makes live feel soft and sweet. When Saturn is in positive aspect, it provides patience, insight over the passage of time, and structure, particularly with relationships. Uranus (awakening) always wants freedom and change, and it does provide an opportunity to create happiness with others without feeling encumbered.

Jupiter

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) in Scorpio moved direct on July 10. During a retrograde, we learn through review and reflection. When a planet moves direct, it’s time to apply what we’ve learned. Jupiter aids the process with a beautiful trine with Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which increases optimism, hope, and beliefs involved with making a difference in the world.

Saturn

Saturn (time, karma) trines Uranus (sudden change, awakening), giving space and help in integrating the desired changes and transformation needed by mankind. This aspect creates fluidity with change and alignment with the new and old worlds.

Retrogrades

Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Chiron are retrograde. With many planets in retrograde, we tend to feel less of the conflict of the outer world, which can be restful. It is a time to relax and push less than in an active time, but it’s equally important to continue our pursuit on the spiritual path on a regular basis. In this way, we’re prepared for the next active phase, which comes in early fall.

Summary

  • Sun and Moon in Cancer indicate the importance of self-nurturing and cultivating positive emotions. Trines with Jupiter (good fortune) and Neptune (mysticism) encourage expansion of the self and creativity.
  • Sun and Moon oppose Pluto. The opposition heightens awareness of blocks and wounds. Through heightened awareness, it may be possible to transform pain into freedom. (The positive aspects with Jupiter/Neptune and Grand Trine with Venus offer relief and resolution.)
  • Mercury and Mars add confusion to the chart. Mercury (mind) in Leo thinks emotionally and passionately instead of wisely. Mars (action) wants to think and ponder instead of taking right action. It’s a muddle, but we can meditate for answers. (Mars is retrograde, and Mercury will move into retrograde soon. These energies persist for several weeks.)
  • Venus (love, relationships) forms beautiful geometry with Saturn (time, karma) and Uranus (awakening). The trine is in earth, which is stabilizing, and Venus acts with wisdom to create freedom in this equation.
  • With many planets in retrograde, it’s important to find balance between motivating and restful experiences. Balance becomes increasingly important as we move into the New Age.
  • This New Moon is a super moon, meaning the moon is close to the earth. When it’s dark, it’s wise to use our light to increase personal vitality, meditate deeply, and work on the self as opposed to the world. (The energy will shift within a week, and we can return to “lighting” up the world.)

Sabian Symbols from Lynda Hill

Sun and Moon are on Cancer 21, “A Prima Donna Singing”. The image evokes the image of a wildly talented woman singing. It can also represent a demanding person who always wants praise and reassurance. On the higher level, it speaks about the testing of our talents and gifts. True gifts are shared by opening the heart and releasing inhibitions about others.

Mercury sits on Leo 18, “A Chemist Conducts An Experiment For His Students”. Chemistry can refer to alchemy, the use of natural elements and materials in a laboratory where manipulation leads to new and better products. We manipulate our environment in a positive sense through consciousness and awareness. The symbol hints at the importance of using the mind to accomplish this.

Venus is placed on Virgo 4, “Black and White Children Playing Happily Together.” At first glance, the symbol refers to the balance of duality (yin, yang/black, white, etc). It can also denote the importance of love in overcoming differences and creating universal harmony.

Mars is on Aquarius 8, “Beautifully Gowned Wax Figures on Display”.  Wax figures are often superficial representations of true people. The symbol asks that we move completely into our true presence as opposed to a presenting a beautiful or acceptable image.

Jupiter sits on Scorpio 14, “Telephone Lineman at Work Installing New Connections.” This is a fabulous symbol because Jupiter plays a strong role in the overall chart. New Connections refer to how we communicate intuitively with one another – and the universe. It’s about expansion of group consciousness in the New Age.

New Moon Forecast: Air and Duality

 

The New Moon appears on Wednesday, June 13 at 3:43 pm.  The energy feels particularly still and “void” because it is a Super New Moon. (Of course, the sky is completely dark.)  The chart asks us to rise above the rapidly changing currents of mind/emotion and align with the higher self whenever possible.

An emphasis on duality is found throughout the chart, and duality is resolved within the inner self. Sun and Moon are in the air sign of Gemini, symbolized by the twins, and ruling the mind and all forms of communication.  Air can refer to the lower or higher mind, and twins are a symbol of duality—representing the interplay of light and darkness. The element of air can also represent the quantum field, the instantaneous transfer of information from the cosmos into the personal mind that creates a gestalt moment of realization.

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (mind) are conjunct or closely placed, heightening the stimulation of our mental processes. The conjunctions act as a catalyst for the mind, increasing our propensity to fire rapid thoughts. Discernment is the key to differentiate between meaningless and meaningful thoughts.  (Influences such as emotions, sensations, the energy fields of others, and the overall global frequency affect our thoughts.)

Sun and Moon square (tension) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which can cause difficulty in separating fact and fiction–particularly with thoughts and feelings. When Neptune (water) squares a planet, it can feel like driving through fog. We can only see a few feet ahead, but we can “feel” our way home on an intuitive level. That’s the needed attitude for the next few days.

Mercury (mind, communications) is placed in Cancer, a water sign, which can hone our listening skills and increase our ability to listen intuitively. It’s a helpful placement, which can be used to “think” with the heart instead of the mind. Mercury is opposite Saturn (limitation, karma). Saturn often limits the concept of self, which can bring feelings of insecurity and/or self-doubt.  Mercury also sextiles (harmonious) Uranus, bringing harmony to the equation and giving greater access to the quantum, the place of angels, miracles, and love/light.

Venus (love, relationships) sits in Cancer, a water sign symbolizing the feminine, the mother, and the home. Venus is placed on mid-heaven, the apex of the chart, symbolizing how love can take us through the inherent challenges of life. Venus opposes Mars (male, action), inciting emotion and stirring up passion in an imperfect way. (This aspect is about NOT acting on passion – at least for a few days.) Venus also squares (tension) Uranus, which can amplify erratic feelings with the people who we love.

Mars in Aquarius expands thought although it rules action. Aquarius is an air sign, and it rules thought so it amplifies thought instead giving direction into clear action. Mars squares (tension) Jupiter (expansion, good fortune), and it stirs up physical energy and passion with a desire to act immediately. With the confusion shown throughout the chart, it’s best to wait to write that email and/or make a phone call. (It’s also a wonderful time to take a big step into an important project.) Mars also squares Uranus (awakening, sudden change), which makes it feel desirable to act on erratic impulses when it’s probably not the best decision.

Jupiter (good fortune) trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, illusion). In Greek and Roman mythology, Jupiter and Neptune were two of the most powerful gods. When they align in positive aspect, it conveys a feeling of hope and optimism about the present and future, which is helpful! Saturn (karma, limitation, the past) trines (harmonious) Uranus (awakening, change), and this aspect aids in combining the knowledge of the past with the possibilities in the future—which creates a better “present” reality.

Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Saturn square Chiron, the wounded healer, indicating that tensions in our lives, emotions, communications, and past may block healing for the moment. (These aspects can also make bring awareness of where healing is needed—and how.) Venus trines (harmonious) Chiron and appears as a shining light, a reminder that love can overcome the wounds in life and past lives as we continue through this process known as the New Age.

Notes:

  • Powerful aspects and placements are found in this chart, which can bring connection to the inner self. The focus on air (Sun, Moon, and Mars) and conjunction of Mercury with Sun and Moon, indicate the possibility of clear, transformative thoughts that can lead to awakening.
  • Thoughts and feelings are not always real. Sometimes, they are projections of other people, society at large, or the repetition of patterns of consciousness. The planets will stimulate every type of thought for the next few days. The challenge lies in discerning the source of thoughts by focusing on the heart and inner self.
  • Venus in Cancer sits on the mid-heaven, the high point of the chart. It opens the door to our hearts – and encourages us to remember the power of love and beauty.
  • A great deal of emotion is activated by this chart. While we may feel emotion quite strongly, it’s not the time to express our feelings or tell others what we think. (It needs to wait.) The erratic qualities in the chart will likely cause poor communication.
  • Jupiter and Neptune join together to create positive vibrations and send them our way. In one sense, there’s a message that we have what it takes to transcend the rough waves before reaching shore.
  • It’s definitely important to work with meditation to find the voice of the inner self and connect with the higher planes.

New Moon Forecast: Continual Change

Image by Mary Southard

The New Moon appeared on May 15. It’s a time of slipping into the void, a short period that occurs before moving into a cycle of change. The New Moon Chart is weighted with six planets in earth. Jupiter continues to rise on the horizon, bringing good fortune and stamina. Uranus moves into Taurus on the day of the New Moon, marking a motion into the physical realization of the New Age.

With Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Uranus in Taurus, the planets ask for a focus on beauty and growth. Sun (outer self, life) and Moon (inner self, emotions) are conjunct (close) in Taurus, the earth sign ruling abundance, physical beauty, and wealth. Sun and Moon trine Mars (masculine, assertiveness), making it easier to take inspired, strong action in the right direction. Sun and Moon also trine Pluto (subconscious, transmutation), which can aid in illuminating the shadows in life and facilitate moving forward in the light.  (Jung taught that our gifts lie within the darkness of the self.)

Mercury (communications, electronics) recently moved into Taurus. Our thoughts may focus on abundance, beauty, and alteration of our environment. It gives connection with nature, amplifying our ability to see color, hear sound, and align with the rhythm of the natural world. Mercury in Taurus also stabilizes and grounds the body, and it aids with creating prosperity.

Mercury (communication) squares Mars (masculine, assertiveness).  Mercury in Taurus can cause stubbornness, lack of flexibility, and an inability to see the viewpoint of others, and Mars pushes the desire to act on our thoughts in an assertive and/or aggressive way. The challenge lies in saying how we feel about our frustrations, anger, or upset in a way that bring resolution.

Mercury also trines Saturn (structure, karma). A trine is a harmonoius aspect, which allows use of Saturn’s qualities such as structure, long term planning, discipline, and practicality. These qualities can be applied mentally when accessing the best way to approach future desires. Mercury conjuncts Uranus (sudden change, awakening), and it can cause erratic and/or inspired, brilliant thoughts.

Venus (love, abundance, feminine) is placed in Gemini, the twins, an air sign, which encourages communication, friends, short journeys, and quick conversation. Venus squares Neptune (idealism, mysticism, illusion). The square is beneficial; it offers attunement to physical and spiritual beauty, which gives greater alignment with the inner self. Take time to see the world through this perspective.

Mars (male, assertion) will move into Aquarius on May 16.  The energies of Mars and Aquarius are not particularly compatible. Mars likes strong, direct action, and Aquarius likes to think, share big ideas, and act on causes for humanity-at-large. Put the two together, and there’s a strong desire to become more individual, promote positive group endeavors, and tune into New Age ideals. (The caution is becoming too open to ideas without considering them thoroughly and to refrain from mental superiority.)

Mars squares Uranus, which is volatile. It can denote sudden, erratic change or ideas and thoughts bordering on genius that create breakthrough moments. With this aspect – and life at this time – it’s important to identify the cause of pain in our lives and seek new, original solutions. (On a global level, it’s not enough to know there are environmental problems. We must see a solution and the change that would follow. We need to identify our highest version of the world and begin by taking small actions. The same is true with social and personal issues.)

 

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) in Scorpio remains close to the earth, and it lifts our spirits, gives vitality, and strength to pursue our inner goals. Jupiter trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, idealism), and the aspect renews optimism, harmony, and a sense of well-being.

Uranus

Uranus moves into Taurus today. It’s a massive change that will affect many of our perceptions about spiritual change, environmental issues, and abundance. (I’m visualizing everyone in a comfortable state of abundance.) Earth changes may accompany this shift.

Sun and Moon trine (harmonious) Pluto (underworld), indicating the possibility of becoming more resourceful when looking at the past—and the darkness of the world at large. Part of spiritual change is understanding the events within the self and world, which cast us into darkness. From this vantage point, we can vibrate above them.

Venus (love, relationships) and Saturn (karma, limitation) square Chiron, the wounded healer. The issues most likely to surface will involve love, relationships, and personal karma. However, this chart is powerful enough to help in creating a “new” self who is freer, lighter, and less reactive to old karma.

Notes:

  1. It’s a beautiful chart with Sun/Moon/Mercury in Taurus, which is ruled by Venus, goddess of love and beauty. It’s a wonderful time to think about transforming our lives with these two qualities. Sun/Moon trines Pluto, offering an opportunity to transcend our current limitations.
  2. Uranus moves into Taurus, and it expands our ability to create our New Age principles in physical form. The shift appears on the New Moon, indicating the possibility of a new way of living and perceiving life.
  3. Throughout the year, Mars creates conjunctions and squares with the outer planets, emphasizing the need to reflect thoroughly on action. The best actions are well timed, resulting from the impetus of the inner self, and wrong actions come from habitual, negative emotions and repetitive thoughts based on patterns. (Mars conjuncts (close) Pluto (subconscious)—an indication that old patterns are likely to surface.)
  4. Mars in Aquarius currently squares Uranus in Taurus, which can cause erratic action, sudden change, and/or inspiration that leads to awakening. Mars square (tension) Uranus tends to bring anger and irritability to the surface. It’s easier to change the feeling and/or suspend judgement of others when we know the cause is merely temporary.
  5. We may experience the sensation of old patterns, relating to love and karma, but there are positive energies available to transmute them.

Sabian Symbols, based on Lynda Hill’s The Sabian Oracle

Sun/Moon is placed on Taurus 25, “A Large Well-Kept Public Park” could symbolize future care of the earth as a beautiful, collective space. With current earth changes, it may represent a way of aligning with nature in a positive, group experience. (It may include care of flora, fauna, etc. It’s interesting to note that much of our wilderness is National Forest land.)

Mercury sits on Taurus 5, “A Youthful Widow, Fresh and Soul-Cleaned from Grief, Kneels at an Open Grave to Receive the Secret of Eternal Life”.  Many of us have passed through difficult soul lessons, including grief, during this entry into the New Age. The symbol indicates a possibility of transcending disappointments and grief to create a new, whole life.

Venus is placed on Gemini 26, “Winter Frost in the Woods” depicts an image of dormancy—the long sleep of nature during winter months. We may long for a new type of love, a deeper heart understanding of life. The time is not now, but it is coming as we move a shift of consciousness.

Mars sits on Capricorn 30, “Directors of a Large Firm Meet in Secret Conference”. The term, directors, could refer to the government, angels, or forces of nature. On the physical level, secrets and policies are created behind closed doors. On the spiritual level, we follow our guides and angels, which are unseen but act as directors nonetheless. (It’s also true that we’re moving into a New Age, which does seem directed by forces that are yet unknown.)

Jupiter sits on Scorpio 18, “A Quiet Path through Woods Brilliant in Autumn Coloring” refers to change, specifically to the type of change that occurs when life becomes dormant. Scorpio penetrates into the darkness, and the symbol may refer to old issues, which need clearing and releasing, before reaping the harvest of Jupiter’s benevolence.
