Planetary Change: New Moon Abundance

May is a particularly beautiful month. The Sun sits in Taurus, which is ruled by Venus, and it conveys a time of flowers—an abundance expressed by the physical world. For the month of May, the lesson appears as realization of our ability to create and receive abundance in physical form. (Abundance is love, joy, health, beauty, and wealth.)

The New and Full Moons tend to heighten our impression and sensation of energy as we experience the absence and presence of light simultaneously as a group. As the group energies become stronger, our experience becomes more intense. The New Moon on May 4 follows the recent pattern of increased awareness, tension, and opportunity of opening to spiritual light.

The Sun (life) and Moon (moods, emotions) are conjunct (close) in Taurus. They trine (harmonious) Saturn, the giver of structure, lessons, and karma. In this case, we may a clear path through karma or recreate our life in a new form. Sun and Moon sextile (positive) Neptune (mysticism, illusion). This aspect may help with receiving hints or insights from the mysterious, unseen world. Sun and Moon trine (harmonious) Pluto (underworld, regeneration), granting power to move through subconscious limitations and/or the courage to move forward in life.

Mercury (communications, thought) and Venus are placed in Aries, a fast-paced fire sign, which encourages thoughts and insights that create activated change in life. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Venus (love, beauty), aligning the mind with the heart. Mercury and Venus trines (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune), indicating positive energy with taking steps forward in life. However, both planets square (tension) Saturn (karma, limitation), and this can slow our progress. (It may also indicate the need for review the heart’s true desire before taking a step into expansion.) Mercury and Venus square (tension) Pluto in Capricorn, asking for a review of our personal limitations and a change of perception that may be necessary before altering our lives.

Mercury and Venus represent thought and love. We all have perceptions about the self, life, and love that limit our ability to step into wholeness and abundance. Additionally, we have limiting thoughts about ourselves and life—and we’re only beginning to learn how to love ourselves personally. The aspects with Saturn and Pluto mentioned above are about resourcefulness and learning how to change ourselves through universal love and quantum experiences. (It takes time.)

Mars (action) is placed in Gemini, an air sign, which can cause the mind to interfere with action. Gemini represents the twins, and it’s easy to become lost in the mind before realizing an action has not been completed. Mars squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and it causes more confusion to unsettled mind. Fortunately, Mars is in opposition (opposite) Jupiter (good fortune), which is actually a positive aspect. It gives courage and enthusiasm along with a desire to pursue our quest. (Part of the lesson is to pursue a quest, which benefits the “All”. In other words, we need an unselfish quest aligned with universal truth.)

Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and personal expansion. The planet trines (harmonious) Uranus, which represents the New Age. Together, they increase exuberance, good luck, and hopefulness. Jupiter squares (tension) Pluto, which asks for the discovery of aspects of the self (and the world) that slow our progress on the path of life. Through this discovery, we make meaningful change.

Saturn (karma) conjuncts Pluto (underworld, transmutation), bringing ambitions and the desire for change to forefront. Pluto incites ambition and the desire for power, and Saturn modulates it with a desire for disciplined devotion and patience. It can heighten fear, obsession, and desire for power—or it can act as force to tear down incorrect structures in our lives and rebuild them in a new form.

Uranus (sudden change or quantum field) is placed in Taurus and is remarkable for aspects only with Mercury, which can inspire higher thinking, and Jupiter, which brings hopefulness and optimism with future pursuits.

Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces forms sextiles with Sun, Moon, and Saturn, opening the door to mystical insights through dreams and inner realizations.  A square with Mars (action) can cloud our perception of right action and/or reading of intuitions and insights. Jupiter (good fortune) square Neptune, and it teaches about our misconceptions and illusions in life. It can also reveal our naivety in relationships, particularly about trusting others.

Pluto holds a big space in this chart. In retrograde position, it tends to reveal aspects of life that are hidden—and require unveiling.  With exception of Uranus, every planet in the chart makes an aspect with Pluto, so it is affecting us on almost every level. (There’s a saying, “Everyone has a chapter in life that they don’t read aloud.” Pluto’s current influence may require that we read it aloud—at least to ourselves. When we face our inner darkness, we find strength to recreate by becoming more in alignment with the inner self.)

Planet Retrograde

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), Saturn (karma, limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) are currently in retrograde. On a basic level, Jupiter asks for review of what keeps us from our dreams. Saturn brings personal lack and limitation to the surface. Pluto shows the hidden darkness within ourselves in our lives. These particular retrogrades ask us to look at what we don’t what to see, but the purpose actually serves us. It’s about seeing the truth and moving in new directions in our lives. (It’s only through the transmutation of the shadow that we find our wholeness.)

The North Node, representing the spiritual direction of group consciousness, is in Cancer. North Node in Cancer asks for respect for feminine, empathy, and kindness. Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (underworld) oppose it. (Saturn and Pluto currently push us into personal power and acquisition of goals, the opposite energy of North Node.) Venus (love, beauty) squares (tension) the North Node. Together, the planets and North Node deliver a message. It’s wonderful to realize goals and make progress in our outer life, but the desires should also promote opening the heart and nurturing others as part of our self-expression and growth.

Notes:

  1. The chart is strong in fire (passion) and earth (grounding).  These elements together encourage passionate motion and quiet time spent in reflection or aligning with nature. There’s a focus on abundance and optimism. (See Sabian symbols below.)
  2. Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) provide a push about contemplating and creating abundance. Trines with Saturn and Pluto give power and insight into creating structures in life. (Release the old life while imagining a new one. Mercury (communications) and Venus (love, partnerships) in Aries push us onward with this pursuit.
  3. Mercury (mind) and Venus (love) square Saturn (limitation) and Pluto (underworld, transformation), encouraging patience and spiritual devotion to overcome energies and karma from the past.
  4.  Life may seem more beautiful than usual because of aspects with Neptune (mysticism, illusion). It heightens intuition and brings answers in a dreamy way.
  5. Higher thought and love are part of evolution. It’s important in creating a new way of being and living. Higher thoughts connect us to the divine, and the right kind of love opens the heart to new possibilities. Right thought and love serve to lift and evolve human consciousness.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun and Moon on Taurus 15, “A Man with a Silk Hat, Muffled Against the Cold, Braves a Storm”.  The symbol refers to a storm. It may appear in the outer world as a shared emotion or difficulty; it could also refer to personal emotions or hardships. The silk hat represents the importance of believing in indications of prosperity and better times—or remaining optimistic while moving through difficulties. (in this chart, it could refer to the influence of Saturn (karma) and Pluto (underworld) as we clear the substance of the influences of past memories and hardships.

Mercury sits on Aries 27, “Through Imagination, A Lost Opportunity Is Gained”. It’s a marvelous symbol for the New Moon, which depicts the power of manifestation—the ability to bring thoughts into form by imagining and visualizing lost hope, opportunities, and joy. It points to the power of using the mind and communication with the Divine to recreate one’s life in a wonderful way.

Venus is placed on Aries 18, “An Empty Hammock Hangs Between Two Lovely Trees”.  Venus represents love, partnerships, and beauty. Relaxing in nature with a soft focus on dreams can sometimes activate the inner self, enhancing the alignment with manifestation—the development and creation of a desirable life.  

Mars sits on Gemini 23, “Three Fledglings in a Nest High Up in a Tree.” Birds are creatures of the air, which can represent the messengers of divine messages. Again, the image of resting in a safe place appears in the astrological line-up.  As time passes and the fledglings grow, they will master the power of soaring through the air. (Air represents thought, so we may develop our ability to cultivate thoughts that lead to a higher understanding of the spiritual world.)

Jupiter is on Sagittarius 24, “A Bluebird, a Sign of Good Luck and Happiness, Is Standing at the Door of the House”. A symbol for optimism appears again with the bluebird of joy. Awareness of good signs, energies, and the hints that point to synchronicity, we can open to a tide of good fortune although we journey through the storm, symbolized by the Sun and Moon.

Planetary Change and New Moon

 

The sky is calmer since the passage of the equinox, the end of Mercury retrograde last week, and the movement of planets into Aries, and other aspects.  However, life remains somewhat free-flowing—a time of reflection while spring awakens the beauty of the earth.

The dark phase of the moon brings the New Moon on April 5, and it remains a time of introspection. Think of seeds lying deep in the earth; it’s same with our aspirations for growth and change. At the same time, the day of the New Moon (and the three days following) are an excellent time for reviewing and renewing plans in the physical/spiritual world.

In month of April, three planets will move into retrograde position. Jupiter, planet of good fortune, will move backwards from April 10-August 11. As Jupiter rules discovery, abundance, and journeys, it’s a time to make corrections on our spiritual path by committing to aspects of life that support our growth. Pluto, planet of transformation and the underworld, is retrograde April 24-October 3. It tends to reveal hidden emotions and old, painful stories before lifting them into the surface of consciousness. It also allows us to rewrite our life stories (and beliefs) in a more victorious way. (Of course, we have to see the truth before we can rewrite into another form.) Saturn moves in retrograde on April 30-September 18. Much of Saturn’s influence is about finding devotion on the higher path and overcoming obstacles by following the light. This path also requires on many levels.

In many ways, the planets are our teachers. The moons (new and full) create a cycle of changing emotions and energies to demonstrate the realm of emotion/thought, which occur in response to various energies.

This New Moon asks for independence, boldness, and courage by moving into the new territory of our dreams. With Sun and Moon in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, it’s important to make new beginnings, plan our lives in a new way, and feel the joy of creation. (Think of the lamb, the symbol of Aries, the appearance of the flowers, and the hope and loveliness that are found in the beginning phases of life.)

Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) in Aries tend to propel our energies in a forward direction. They trine (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), eliciting positive outcomes from positive interactions with steps taken in life to create a more positive life and flowing emotions. Sun and Moon square Saturn (limitation, karma), making it necessary to push determinedly through obstacles and old, worn-out perceptions about our lives. Sun and Moon square Pluto (underworld, transformation), making it necessary to find the truth about subconscious feelings and free them by recreating them into a higher form. (Fortunately, Sun and Moon are very creative in a fire sign.)

Mercury (communications) remains in Pisces, linking us into mystical communications and confusing us with the dual-vision of Pisces (two fish swimming in opposite directions.)  Mercury squares (tension) Jupiter (good fortune), which may help with discerning our higher and lower thoughts—and their benefit/lack of benefit. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Neptune in Pisces, amplifying the free-floating feeling, which we’ve experienced for weeks. (On the positive, it can heighten our intuition and mystical nature.)

Venus

Venus (love, partnerships) is beautifully placed in Pisces where it is exalted, offering an expression of mystical, idealistic love in the physical world. It can also help us to connect more deeply with divine forces, which serve us with our life purpose. (Venus, Mercury, and Neptune rise in this chart, offering a doorway into love and higher frequencies.) Venus squares (tension) Mars (male energy), which may make communication between the sexes more difficult than usual. But Venus also conjuncts (close to) Neptune, which can awaken dreams of the heart and nourish the spirit.

Mars (male, energy) is in Gemini, the sign of the twins. In this air sign, Mars lacks traction; it’s more difficult to move forward. We also experience some of the push me/pull me energy, which appeared last month with many signs of Pisces. (Think of a red light that turns green and not knowing if you turn right or left!) Fortunately, the energy of Sun/Moon in Aries can push us through life.

Jupiter (good fortune) in Sagittarius continues to ask for heightened interest in spirituality, study, and inner development. Jupiter trines Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), increasing our ability to harmoniously combine the old and new world. Jupiter squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, idealism), creating the need for discernment between the lovely, flowing feeling of connection and creating a path (life) that serves us. Jupiter also squares (tension) Chiron, the wounded healer, which may heighten awareness of old wounds and karma.

Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) continues to square (tension) Pluto (underworld, transformation), dredging the dark material of the River Styx into the light for transformation into something beautiful and new. Neptune sextiles (harmonious) Pluto, offering unconditional as part of the process of transformation, the beautiful and challenging way of life in a New World.

New Moon & New Energies

 

The New Moon appears on March 6, and it bestows lovely energy—along with a few challenges. At the time of the New Moon, the sky is dark. It’s a good time for finding answers through the inner self and resting quietly for a day or two before moving into a phase of action. The New Moon brings a focus on the dreamy, feminine energy of Pisces with Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (communications) and Neptune (mysticism/idealism) placed in this sign. Pisces is a water sign, and it amplifies emotion. As ruler of the 12th house, it also pertains to karma from past lives and the past Age, which was ruled by Pisces.

Sun (life) and Moon (emotions, feminine) sextile (harmonious) Mars (action) and Saturn (discipline, karma). Sun and Moon in Pisces can increase the expanse of the imagination and inspire new dreams; the positive aspects with Mars and Saturn give strength to act decisively and in a disciplined way. After all, this is how we bring the beauty of the imagination into physical form, which is one of the lessons of this point in time.

Sun, Moon, and Mercury square Jupiter in Sagittarius, bringing tension between our dreams and expansion in life. Planets in Pisces lead us into beautiful dreams, which are often inspired by the mystical part of the universe, but Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) in Sagittarius longs for a quest, the physical walk on the path of the soul to fulfill desires. Jupiter asks that we find a realistic way of bringing dreams into form. (There’s a substantial difference between day dreaming and consciously dreaming.) Jupiter urges us to separate fantasy from reality and take realistic steps with dreams that come from the heart and lead into the light.

Mercury moved into retrograde on March 5, bringing a month of confusion, clearing, and inner realization. Mercury rules communications and electronics as well as messages from the Divine, and they are typically scrambled for 3-4 weeks. It is possible to discern true messages and direction but only through the inner self. (The logical mind tends to lose its focus during Mercury retro.) This Mercury retro is particularly important because it involves Pisces, ruler of the dark energies and karma of the past age. It actually gives an opportunity to release old drama and tired emotions while allows space for transmutation and higher energies as we move into New Age. (When possible, it’s best to deal with this Mercury retro, which extends through March 28,  by releasing emotions and renewing ourselves through rest and reflection. At best ,it’s a time of moving into the heart and finding universal love to wash away the past.

Venus (love, beauty, partnerships) is placed in Aquarius, an independent and eclectic air sign. Venus in Aquarius is interested in the mind and the flow of energy in another person. Venus squares Mars (male, action) and Uranus (sudden change, awakening), which can cause tension and/or misunderstanding with partners. With these placements, it’s important to wait and think before speaking. (Don’t fight, think!)

Mars (action, male energy) is placed in Taurus, an earth sign, which gives grounding, strength for action, and vitality for the physical body. Taurus is the bull that patiently pushes its way to success, loves the earth and natural beauty, and patiently stands its ground. Mars rules action and energy, and it’s powerful in this position. Mars also forms wonderful aspects that balance the dreamy energy of many planets placed In Pisces. It trines Saturn, the ruler of discipline and time, which aids with intention, focus, and sustained effort. Mars trines Pluto (transformation, underworld), giving power and strength to recognize and transmute old patterns and karma.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) in Sagittarius encourages optimism, growth, and our desire for spiritual development. The planet of good fortune trines (harmonious) Uranus (awakening, sudden change), encouraging positive outcomes with an awakened state—and possibly sudden change. Jupiter squares (tension) Neptune (illusion, mysticism), asking for a realistic balance between dreams and the desire for a more beautiful and balanced life.

Saturn, ruler of discipline, devotion, and karma, sextiles (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and this aspect combines devotion and discipline with dreams and beauty—enlarging the possibility of creating a physical structure for inner desires. Saturn conjuncts (close to) Pluto (underworld, transformation), and the planets in combination are powerful. Together, they can help in finding inner and outer resources and/or transforming the fabric of our lives.

Uranus recently moved into Taurus, an earth sign that rules beauty, nature, and physical form. Uranus rules sudden change, awakening, and higher communication. It also represents the quantum field or spontaneous healing and/or change. Earth signs tend to act in a stabilizing manner, and Uranus may bring awakening in a gentler form—or it may teach about the importance of listening to nature as we seek inner growth. Uranus in Taurus emphasizes music, beauty, art, and money/possessions. (Uranus will stay in this position for 7 years.)

Chiron, the wounded healer,  is in Aries, which represents the beginning of the cycle, the mind and the head. Healing may come from changing our thoughts or learning to think in a new way. It could also involve transmitting thought in new ways which were never thought of before. Or it could refer to finding new healing methods by connecting the mind and heart.

Notes:

  1. Many planets in Pisces present beautiful, dreamy energy that can help with artistic endeavors, connecting with Divine, and heighten the imagination. Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Neptune in Pisces is also about clearing emotions from the past, and we will likely feel our emotions more intensely than usual. It can also make life feel slightly confusing or foggy, particularly with Mercury retrograde in Pisces.
  2. Squares with Sun/Moon and Jupiter (good fortune) ask for discernment when separating escapism and dreaming. Creating a reality, which expands our life, takes planning and work. The tension between the 3 planets can help with this.
  3. Mercury will remain retrograde through March 28. The general rules apply. It’s not a good time to make a significant change, buy electronics, or travel. It is a good time to reflect on life, redo projects, and renew our energy. Mercury retro causes confusion and breakdowns in communication. It’s helpful when we can “listen” through the inner self.
  4. Uranus in Taurus causes a huge shift in energy. It is more stable than Uranus in Aries, and it may smooth the way to awakening. It will concern the earth and nature–although part of awakening is hearing the voice of nature. It will definitely affect finance. (Let’s see this as positive.)
  5. Chiron in Aries is another significant change. The wounded healer rules how we heal on a group level as well as the energy of our wounding. Aries can be aggressive and headstrong, but it is also assertive and forceful when following the right answer.

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.)
