Intense, Mystical New Moon

 

 

The New Moon appears on November 4 at 5:16 pm ET, and it brings a great deal of mystical energy. It is an intense lunation with Sun, Moon, and Mars closely placed in Scorpio. Sun (outer life), Moon (inner self, emotions), and Mars (action, assertion) are placed in Scorpio, the sign that rules birth, death, and sex—all different forms of transformation. Scorpio delivers psychic perception, magnetism, intelligence, passion, and determination.

The New Moon chart heralds a time of change and transcendence of limiting aspects in life. A great deal of energy comes from Sun/Moon opposition with Uranus, which can open our consciousness to the need for authenticity. (Awakening usually grants this information, and action creates it. Inspiration for action is implied in these aspects.)

Sun, Moon, and Mercury (communication) conjunct Mars, heightening the desire for action and change. Sun, Moon, and Mars (action) oppose Uranus, known as the wildcard as it rules the quantum field and/or erratic change. Uranus can also bring about deep awakening and gestalt understanding of new energies, brilliant thoughts, or nervousness.  Sun (outer life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (communications) and Mars (action) square Saturn (time, limitation), indicating the need to overcome misperceptions and mistakes from the past—or simply apply wisdom to mitigate karma.

Sun and Moon trine Neptune (exaltation, imagination, mystical) in Pisces, increasing the magnetic power of emotion in everyone. Neptune rules imagination, the sea, and the mystical; it can also indicate the awakening of hope and new dreams.

Mercury (communications) in Libra is balanced, artistic, and harmonious. Mercury trines (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune), bringing optimism and good news. Mercury square Pluto (underworld, transformation) heightens the ability to understand hidden aspects of the psyche. It also intensifies feelings and emotions when we interact with others.

Venus is on the last degree of Sagittarius, moving into Capricorn on November 5, and it’s not a perfect place for this planet. Venus in Capricorn brings a strange equation of strong and suppressed emotion, which can bubble to the surface in strange ways. With this placement, there’s an opportunity to build structure in relationships, but it’s also more difficult to correctly convey emotion from the heart. (Venus moves into retrograde, remaining in Capricorn for four months.)

Mars (action) in Scorpio is intense, moving from the depth of hidden emotion to strong expression. Mars’ squares with Saturn and Pluto causes conflict through the desire to push and achieve while feeling blocked and/or defensive. Mars square Saturn (limitation) may feel like unknown resistance to our inner desires. Mars square Pluto increases the desire for success and power.

Saturn (karma, time) in Aquarius squares Uranus (change) in Taurus, creating a push/pull effect between the old/new in the outer world and personal worlds.

Tips

  • The New Moon will provide a great deal of energy—particularly emotional energy. When we feel emotion intensely, it’s important to think about changing our lives in a positive sense and meditating on universal love. It’s also helpful to know emotions are like waves; they rise and fall.
  • Take time to dream and imagine wonderful things, but keep them in perspective. When thinking about dreams and desires, consider the time and energy needed to put them into physical form. (Aspects with Neptune can cause lack of realism and a bit of escapism.)
  • Aspects with Uranus encourage new expression and individualism, and aspects with Saturn restrict its expression. Use the energy to visualize your desired life with fewer constraints and limitations. The process of creation provides the “how”.
  • Awakened individuals will become more intuitive and psychic with the passage of the New Moon. The placement of the planets and aspects with Neptune expand our mystical qualities. (Make notes and listen to your inner voice.)
  • The chart increases the desire for success, action, and power. Use it wisely.

Super Moon and Lunar Eclipse

Photo by Griffin Lambert

 

May’s Full Moon brings light to the pale, night sky. On May 26, the super moon appears, accompanied by a lunar eclipse—the only one in 2021.  

Lunar eclipses occur when the sun and moon are equal distances from the earth, and the moon passes through the earth’s shadow. Eclipses are said to act as a “reset” through the on/off motion of light. On an esoteric level, they can represent the motion of passing through the shadow of the psyche and awakening to a higher awareness of life.

Each month, the new and full moon charts write a story about “becoming”, which points to engagement between the lower and higher self. Each planet and its placement in a sign indicate a specific type of energy. The planets also indicate energies in the outer world. (It’s important to remember the planets impel but don’t compel. We have free will.)

With Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Gemini and the moon in Sagittarius, there are opposing forces with energy moving in many directions.  Gemini is the sign of the twins; it brings qualities of quick mentality, rapid thought, talkativeness, and short journeys. It also involves communications and relationships with siblings. Both Sagittarius and Gemini involve thought.

The Sagittarius Moon focuses on the importance of emotions and thoughts as they relate to the soul’s journey. Gemini loves rapid thought–the quick understanding and compilation of knowledge. Gemini is represented by the duality of twins (dark/light, happy/sad, and lower/higher mind.)

Sun (life/light) trines (harmonious) Saturn (time, structure, karma), and it can increase studiousness, discipline, and alignment with purpose. Sun trines Pluto (underworld, transformation), which brings power and awareness of purpose to the surface.

Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) square (tension) Jupiter (expansion, good fortune), meaning that our thoughts and understanding of our direction may not align with expansion and growth. Squares ignite pressure on the psyche, and they can provide a push into finding answers, creating boundaries, or taking action.

Mercury will move into retrograde May 29 through June 22. Mercury in retrograde tends to cause delays with travel and confusion in general; however, it’s an excellent time for rest and completing projects that are already in motion.

Mercury (mind, communication) is well placed in Gemini, an air sign, which encourages brilliant, logical thoughts. Mercury conjuncts Venus (love, beauty, relationships), which aligns thought, communication, and the heart. It may be particularly easy to find our voice when speaking our personal truth—or simply feeling the union of emotion and thought. Mercury trines (harmonious) Jupiter (expansion, good fortune), which focuses the mind on optimistic and light hearted thoughts.  (The higher mind can also aid in finding spiritual and/or inner direction.)

Mercury (thought) and Venus (love) square (tension) Neptune (mysticism, illusion). Neptune encourages intuition, sensitivity, and creativity. It can also cause confusion with thought and matters of the heart. The square tends to increase our tendency to become overwhelmed by illusions relating to the past. However, it’s possible to learn from the squares by using discernment and observing emotions.

Venus (art, beauty) trines (harmonious) Saturn (structure, karma). The aspect can increase creativity in a structured sense such as the development of talents and gifts in a practical sense. It also helps in finding solutions in relationships It is also about the development of beauty in the self, surroundings, and life.

Mars (action, assertion) is placed in Cancer, a water sign. Mars is emotional in this placement, and there’s often the need to work through “old” emotions and/or patterns before taking the next step. Mars trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion) stimulates passion and creativity. It lends boldness to thoughts and desires; it also activates the desire to aid with human rights and environmental issues. Mars opposes Pluto (underworld, transformation), which may increase frustration and agitation. The aspect also encourages using power to create positive change in a practical sense.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) is beautifully placed in Pisces. Some astrologers refer to it as the Guardian Angel as it offers a sweet, positive energy that brings optimism and hope. Jupiter in Pisces relates to development of creativity, intuition, compassion, and healing.

Saturn (limitation, karma) in Aquarius squares Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) in Taurus. Saturn often represents the old way of law, particularly pertaining to laws, the past, and accumulation of karma. Uranus represents the new, electronics, and sudden change. Put them together, and it’s easy to see the split in politics, humanity, and current events. (Difficulties, which Saturn often brings to surface, may improve or weaken us.)  Hopefully, we’ll find new solutions.

Tips:

  • Eclipses and a super moon may feel intense, but the energy will pass in a few days.
  • The right placement of thought is important with three planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus) in Gemini and Mercury (mind) in the shadow of retrograde.
  • There are contradictory energies throughout the chart, which is similar to our experiences in life. For example, Sun (life) trines Pluto (underworld, transformation), which gives strength and power. Mars (action, male, the warrior) opposes Pluto, which can cause agitation and confusion. Through discernment, we can accurately align our actions with higher choices.
  • Venus (love, art, relationships) trine Saturn (time, karma) helps with finding good structure for artistic endeavors.
  • Jupiter (expansion) in Pisces encourages optimism and a positive outlook throughout June and July.

Beautiful New Moon

It’s easy to feel the shift through the sigh of the trees, the motion of the clouds, and the alterations in the weather. The planet is shifting and taking us along for the ride.

The New Moon appears on May 11 at 2:59 pm. With Sun, Moon, Uranus, and Pluto in earth signs, it makes for a fertile energy for fostering ideas, working with the soil, resting, or enjoying the beauty of nature. While it’s important to work with plans and keep life in order, this is a moon for a brief period of rest and reflection.

The Sun and Moon form beautiful shapes with Neptune (mysticism) and Pluto (underworld, transformation.) Sun (life, light) and Moon (emotion) sextile Neptune and trine Pluto. Aspects with Neptune heighten sensitivity, creativity, and receptiveness. Trines with Pluto increase personal magnetism and intensity. The aspects can help with changing our lives in a positive sense. (Positive aspects with Pluto tend to increase power and energy in general.)

When Uranian energies conjunct and align positively with the sun and moon–our personal yin and yang–we experience the impetus of spiritual energy coursing through our lives. Divine, inspired ideas are sometimes received, causing our lives to flow in a spiritual direction. (Uranus rules the quantum field where odd changes and thoughts lead to greater realization.)

Mercury (thought, communication) is placed in Gemini, radiating rapid thought and increased ability to communicate effectively. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Venus, aligning the higher mind with the heart. Mercury trines (harmonious) Saturn (limitation/structure/karma), and it’s positive with this placement, aiding in our ability to bring order to our thoughts and plans. Mercury conjuncts the North Node (collective goals and commitments), which can give clarity and unity to our collective quests in a positive sense.

Venus (love, romance) trine Pluto heightens love, romance, and sensuality. It intensifies our feelings and emotions about love, relationships, and prosperity. Desire is a part of every quest, and Venus in this position increases it by deepening emotions, aesthetics, and commitment to all types of relationships. Venus square Jupiter can increase the desire to have fun, relax, or forget about work, but the feeling isn’t conducive to growth. (It’s wise to push past it.)

Mars (action, assertiveness, male) in Cancer brings emotions into play, particularly when we contemplate action and moving through particular aspects of life. Our emotions may interfere with right action—unless we simply accept the need to take a step and make changes in the flow of life.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) is on the last degree of Aquarius. On May 13, Jupiter moves into the first degree of Pisces where it becomes exalted (the most beneficial position and sign for a planet). Jupiter in Pisces stirs the soul, uniting inner knowledge and expansion. It heralds a time of optimistic thought, new ideals, and positive feelings.

Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus refers to the divisive energies between Saturn (old world structure) and Uranus (the utopian dream). It points to the conflicts between liberal and conservative on political, economic, and social levels. The square involves the conflict between issues of technology and harmony on earth and the physical world.

Pluto is retrograde until October 6. It occurs every year, and the retrograde involves creating boundaries, releasing control issues, and reclaiming personal power. It’s also a good time to review goals.

Tips

  1. The New Moon brings peaceful energy through aspects with Neptune, which rules mysticism and encourages insights into our spiritual nature.
  2. Trines with Pluto increase power and energy, making it a good time to focus on long term goals and personal resources.
  3. Mercury in Gemini bring clarity to the mind and aids with thought and communication.
  4. Jupiter is moving into Pisces, which will bring a feeling of wellbeing.
  5. The New Moon provides a period of rest and reflection, which should be followed by action. Think and meditate about the wisest actions for making long term changes in life.

Energetic Forecast: Full Moon Eclipse

The Full Moon appeared on Monday, November 30 at 4:29 am ET. It’s a relatively gentle full moon for 2020 although it brings a partial lunar eclipse. Eclipses are similar to flipping the power breaker on and off; the light goes on and off. It acts as a reset, which may be needed at this time.

Throughout the last few months, the forecasts have been challenging, which required a great deal of energy and strength. It’s true that spiritual abilities and powers are often developed during difficult times, which usually involve karma on a personal and/or collective level. However, we can move into mildly optimistic weather between now and mid-January as the aspects slowly improve. (It’s a slow curve, but it’s encouraging.)

It’s an odd chart with an equation of beauty and strength balanced by instability, laziness, and an increase of emotion. Four strong aspects are with Neptune, the planet of mysticism and illusion, which points to Divine when it’s clear—but clouds our vision with other aspects. (The goal is always finding the truth through the inner self or learning more about it when the “weather” is strange.)

Sun (life) is in Sagittarius, the fire sign signifying the spiritual quest and journeys of all kinds. Moon (emotions) is in Gemini, an air sign that rules the mind and communications. Sun trines (harmonious) Mars (energy), and it heightens physical, emotional, and mental energy. Sun squares (tension) Neptune (idealism, mysticism), and it heightens escapism and a tendency for laziness. Moon (emotions) squares Neptune, which increase sensitivity and perception, but the aspect Neptune tends to confuse clear reads. (Neptune can increase psychic perception and artistic abilities with these aspects.)

Mercury (mind, communications) in Scorpio intensifies emotions, mental focus, and the desire to find hidden truths.  Mercury brings clarity of thought and greater mental awareness in this chart. It trines (harmonious) Neptune, stimulating creativity, ability with the arts, and the power of transmitting thoughts to others. It increases intuitive abilities such as visualization. Obviously, it’s important to use these abilities in a positive way.

Venus (love, relationships) in Scorpio is passionate, intense, and fixed on desires. Venus opposes (strong energy moving in 2 directions) Uranus (sudden change, quantum field); the aspect causes erratic emotions and thoughts in “love” relationships and partnerships. Venus trines (harmonious) Neptune, which creates harmony, beauty, compassion, and positive relationships.

Mars (overall energy) is in Aries as it has been for months. It continues to square Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (underworld, transformation.) It continues to amplify the feeling of underlying anger and tension, which is prevalent in the United States. (This continues until January 6.)

Saturn (limitation, karma) square Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) combines stability and freedom in a positive sense. Open mindedness is needed for big changes. It’s important to adapt to change rather than fighting it.

The conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto continues as does COVID and the resulting changes associated with it. Fortunately, this will begin to change in mid-January.

Tips

  • It’s an interesting chart with contradictory aspects such as Sun trine Mars, which increases energy, focus, and desire. Sun square Neptune, reduces energy and depletes drive. Moon squares Neptune—an aspect that increases emotional and intuitive sensitivity while clouding the issue and decreasing discernment. (Part of metaphysical work lies in solving contradictory issues within the self and life.)
  • Mercury (communications) supplies needed help with lack of vision and clarity. It amplifies the good qualities of Neptune, bringing clarity, artistic ability, and increased intuitive skills.
  • Mars (overall life energy) continues to bring frustration and suppressed anger with squares to Saturn (limitation) and Pluto (underworld).
  • Venus (feminine, love, relationships) offers strong on and off emotions with an aspect to Uranus (sudden change) and alternately provides harmony and compassion through a trine with Neptune.
  • An eclipse is an on/off motion, and the chart is somewhat the same. We can move from one duality to another—or we can remember who we are. Alignment is key with this full moon chart.

Planetary Change: Halloween’s Blue Moon

When the veil opens on Halloween, the Full Blue Moon appears. Full Moons are intense, and it’s particularly true in this case.  The chart presents odd aspects such as Sun (life) in opposition to Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) and Moon (emotions) conjunct Uranus. Uranus can act as a wild card, causing emotions and thoughts to suddenly change. Conversely, it can give brilliance and sudden insights into universal truths. It’s a strange forecast with energy moving in many directions, which is fitting for Halloween.

The Full Moon focuses on feminine energy with Sun in Scorpio, a water sign, and Moon in Taurus, an earth sign.  Water and earth signs are feminine and receptive, and they urge acknowledging emotion, finding understanding of internal states, and creating change in the physical world. Sun in Scorpio heightens intensity, intuition, and emotion. Moon in Taurus, an earth sign, is stabilizing and grounding.

Sun (life) in opposition to Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) can cause nervousness, tension, or irritation. It can also bring about sudden reactions and impulsiveness. Moon (emotion) conjuncts (close to) Uranus adds electrical energy and volatile emotions. With Moon and Uranus placed in Taurus, an earth sign, it’s possible to turn to grounding, exercise, and meditation to calm nervous energy and focus emotion.

Sun trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and it’s a beautiful placement, which can bring quiet contemplation and deeper understanding of the spiritual world. It can also quiet emotion and increase feelings of peacefulness. It opens the soul to receive intimations from the Divine.

Part of energetic work involves changing our perception when we feel a particular planetary or karmic influence. We accomplish this by moving into a higher level of life (and light.) For many of us, the full moon awakens subtle energies, which encourages our inner aspirations. The trick is to continue embracing them—regardless of the sensations of life.

Mercury (communications, electronics) remains retrograde until November 3, and it will likely affect the election. It’s difficult to work with electronics and find clarity when Mercury is indirect. Additionally, Mercury squares Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (karma, limitation) and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). Mercury square (tension) Jupiter can bring optimism and the ability for long-term planning. It can also heighten restlessness and impracticality. Mercury square Saturn relates to increases negative feelings of isolation and worry. Mercury square Pluto stimulates deep thinking and the desire to realize greater truth.

Venus (feminine, love, relationships) is beautifully placed in Libra, an air sign. Venus in Libra heightens our appreciation for beauty and art; it increases the ability to create harmonious relationships. Venus trines (harmonious) Saturn (limitation, karma), bringing stability, balance, and stability to love relationships. (This is a wonderful aspect for this particular chart!)

Mars in Aries continues in its retrograde until November 13. In the last weeks of Mars retrograde, our physical energy tends to decline. Mars retrograde in Aries pulls on our physical energy, and it may create layers of repressed anger and frustration. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). Mars square Jupiter sometimes acts as a motivating force, pushing plans to action. Mars square Saturn brings frustration and inhibition. Mars square Pluto can give an intense desire to overcome limitations and increased drive. (On the level of collective consciousness, it can cause frustration, violence, or ruthlessness.)

The squares between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, which influence the current world structure and transition, remain in place as we move through a profound series of changes, which can lead to positive or negative transformation on the collective level.

Summary

Many aspects are found in the chart, which can cause tiredness, agitation, or nervousness, through the first week of November. However, there are also aspects that aid in seeing beauty, grounding energy, and finding the inner self. It’s best to pull into meditation, stillness, and higher frequencies whenever possible. It’s how we send light and positive change to the current chaos while maintaining our center and continuing with spiritual growth. (It also protects us from the outer energies of the world.)

Tips

  1. It’s a feminine chart with many signs in water and earth, which can help with grounding and inner flow, but more challenging aspects dictate a considerable effort with flow and focus of consciousness.
  2. Many aspects cause conflicting and sudden emotion. When we feel emotional, realize it’s temporary. Avoid arguments and talk later when the energy is calmer.
  3. Mercury (communications) in retrograde confuses the mind, electronics, and travel. The Sun’s opposition with Uranus heightens it. On the positive, there’s only another week of the retrograde.
  4. Sun (life) trine Neptune (mysticism) is a lovely, supportive influence that can connect us to divine forces and insights. Venus (love, relationships) is in Libra, accentuating the beauty in life, and Venus’s trine with Saturn stabilizes relationships.
  5. Mars retrograde in Aries can bring tiredness, agitation, and anger. It can help in pushing through blocks and completing projects.
  6. It’s helpful to know the aspects and their influences are only temporary, and many feelings and emotions are transitory.

New Moon Forecast: Intense Weather

The New Moon appears on Friday, October 16 at 3:31 pm. The New Moon brings a brief period of quiet and stillness. In the darkness, the stars sing in the velvet night. During the day, the natural world is particularly beautiful with Sun and Moon in Libra, an air sign ruled by Venus.  Libra brings balance, harmony, creativity, and an emphasis on relationships.

This chart brings lovely influences, which can carry us through the more challenging ones. Venus (love, beauty) forms a trine with Jupiter (expansion) and Uranus (sudden change, quantum field.) The message is direct. It’s possible to align with the heart and move into unconditional love, which leads to expansion and good fortune (Jupiter). In this place of expansion, we can attune to the higher messages of the quantum field. (The quantum field is the place of angels and miracles where we receive visions of what life can become—which is often distinctly different from the laws of physicality. It’s where our souls get a boost from universal energies.)

Venus (love, beauty, relationships) in Virgo, an earth sign ruling hygiene, healing, and order, trines Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation, karma), Uranus (sudden change) and Pluto (transformation). The large number of trines suggest potential answers are found in reflecting on love and using our creative energy to focus on beauty, expression, and insights that come from the heart. Venus opposes Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which may reveal illusions about love and life.

On October 17, the Sun and the star, Arcturus, move into their annual alignment. It’s said that we receive new energies of light and insights to move beyond frustration and doubt into greater love and understanding. Again, we have to open to it as light codes initially feel overwhelming, but it’s how we evolve.

Light codes are waves of energy, which enhance Intuition and perception; they also open our minds to universal truth.  It takes time to accurately interpret new information, so meditate on insights and consider the time and reflection needed for adequate assimilation.

Challenging Aspects

Many aspects intensify the forecast for the next 3 weeks. On another level, energy is energy. It’s more about what we do with it than how it feels.

Sun and Moon square (tension) Mars (energy), Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (underworld, transformation). The planets form T-square that creates pressure, amplifying the feeling of limitation, which has occurred in 2020. On the positive, we can rewrite the limitations on life (Sun), moon (emotions) from Mars and the other planets. We can use our time and energy (Mars) to expand practices such as meditation, exercise, and creativity. We can find strength and discipline in limitation (Saturn) and transform our lives (Pluto).

Mercury (communications) is retrograde until November 3, which slows movement, confuses time and thought, and affects electronics. Mercury in Scorpio reveals underlying truths, but they may be difficult to decipher until Mercury moves direct. Mercury opposes Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), and it can lead us to greater truths or confusing reads on the surface of current reality. Mercury trines (harmonious) Neptune (illusion/mysticism, which opens our consciousness to messages from the Divine.

Mars (overall energy, action) is also retrograde in Aries, which can bring the desire to act without the energy to do so—or a very strong desire, which is aligned with the ego and not the inner self. It can feel frustrating and upsetting, or it can reveal what we truly want in life. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation). The aspect brings tension, a desire to act, tension, and agitation. It also accelerates the desire and need for action and change.

Jupiter (expansion) in Capricorn trines Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), and it helps in having strength to move through uncertainty. The aspect increases creative genius, new solutions, and unconventional answers.

Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) remain in conjunction, and the aspects, which began in early 2020, continue through this placement. On the positive, Pluto takes us down deep to find resources and unknown aspects of the self and life for personal transformation.

Tips

  • It is a challenging chart with aspects that can cause tension, emotional responses, or anxiety. However, there are also beautiful and encouraging aspects with Venus, which open the heart and lift our spirit.
  • Mercury (communication) is retrograde. Stay with current plans, review thoughts and feelings, and rest when possible.
  • Mars in retrograde can create the build-up of tension and a desire to act quickly or impulsively. Stay on track and move evenly through life.
  • Jupiter’s trine with Uranus can help in finding new solutions to problems and gives strength.
  • There are aspects in the chart, which will help in finding calm and focus, but it takes work to create results. Meditate, visualize, and focus whenever possible.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sabian symbols depict the energy of a sign and its degree.

Sun and Moon are on Libra 24, “A Third Wing on the Left Side of a Butterfly” indicates imbalance and awkwardness in our personal lives and emotions. Certainly, everyone is thrown a bit off balance in the current waves of life.

Mercury is placed on Scorpio 12, “A Brilliant Assembly of Dignitaries at an Official Embassy Ball”. The symbol can (accurately) point to political planning, ethics and manners, and diplomatic standoffs.

Venus sits on Virgo 17, “A Volcanic Eruption Bringing Dust Clouds, Flowing Lava, and Earth Rumblings”. It could refer the build-up of emotional energy over many months—or life changing events. It indicates a need for release of emotion and expression of anger.

Mars is on Aries 21, “A Boxer Entering the Ring”. With Mars in retrograde, the symbol may refer to our need to make changes, express self-assertion, or determination. It’s also about using power in a positive sense for personal expression as opposed to aggression.

Jupiter sits on Capricorn 20, “A Hidden Choir Singing During a Religious Service”. It’s a depiction of spiritual music and energy, which uplifts the congregation or listeners. It can refer to the universal voice that is unseen but speaks to the soul.

Full Corn Moon Forecast

The full Corn Moon appears on Wednesday, September 2. As the first leaves change color and grapes fall to the earth, it marks the turn of the world into the season of harvest. The forecast features a Virgo Sun and Pisces Moon, combining the mysticism of Pisces and the practicality of Virgo. In some ways, it’s perfect as many of us are feeling the call of the cosmos–the dreaminess of the universe speaking through our intuition and hearts. At the same time, we may yearn for positive expression in the physical world.

The problem with mysticism involves our interpretation through the ego, which is rarely obvious, and applying our insights in daily life. It’s one thing to understand how energy works a particular way –and an entirely different pursuit to remember to apply it on a regular basis. The first area of difficultly lies with misinterpretation; our ego has a way of wanting life to appear in a certain way—along with a willingness to misread it. Our hearts read life in a way that is crystal clear; it’s believing and acting, which construe the challenge. The combination of Virgo Sun/Pisces moon may give the opportunity to become more discerning and move more deeply into the true self.

Sun (life) trines (harmonious) Jupiter (expansion) and Uranus (sudden change, quantum field). Sun trine Jupiter denotes a sense of optimism and expansion. Sun trine Uranus expands mental and spiritual abilities such as original ideas, breakthrough thoughts and realizations, and a desire to express individuality.

Moon (emotion) in Pisces connects our consciousness to the unseen world; t opens the veil between worlds, increasing intuition. Moon conjunct (close to) Neptune (mysticism, illusion) gives greater reception to the mystical through prayer, visualization, and contemplation. It’s how we hear God, the universe, and angels. It’s the feeling received after prayer when we feel the lift after asking for help on a spiritual level.

Mercury (communication) in Virgo trines (harmonious) Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (underworld). The three trines create the possibility of positive communication, strong structure, and the ability to solve mysteries and find answers (Pluto). (Virgo is an earth sign ruled by Mercury, which aids in communication.)

Venus (love, relationships) is placed in Cancer, a water sign. Venus opposes Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation) and Pluto (underworld, transformation). It’s likely that we may feel other people are acting out of sync with our loving nature. Venus squares (tension) Mars (energy, assertion). However, Venus is conjunct (close to) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), offering a way to move into higher love and align with beauty to overcome the more dissonant energies.

Mars (energy, male) remains in Aries, a fire sign, which pushes us into action. (Mars will move into retrograde in mid-September, and it can make life feel frustrating. Use this time to work on calm emotions.) Mars squares Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (collective energies, transformation), and we may feel that it takes a big push on our part to take the next step or pursue the right action.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) is direct. When Jupiter in Capricorn moves out of retrograde, it expands our drive to succeed and move in the direction of our goals. It’s also supportive on the path of light. (The caution involves realism in relationship to our goals, practicality, and wise, balanced use of money and growth.) Jupiter trines Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) gives insights when combining the new and old aspects of life.

The conjunctions, associated with COVID and changes in the outer world, involve Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. They will continue throughout the year.

 

Notes:

  1. The chart helps in experiencing the mystical side of the self in physical reality. We receive energy for orderliness and clear thought of Virgo as well as the spiritual insights of Pisces. Sun trines Jupiter (good fortune) and Uranus (sudden change, quantum change), which helps with optimism and receiving new thoughts and answers.
  2. Sun (life) and Mercury (communications) oppose Neptune (mysticism/illusion). With this aspect, it’s important to check intuitions twice before taking action because our communication from the unseen world is not always clear.
  3. The power of writing, speaking and communicating is heightened through Mercury’s trines with Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation).
  4. We may feel out of sync with our loved ones as Venus opposes Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) It’s wise to focus on universal, unconditional—and know the aspects are like a passing storm.
  5. Squares with Mars (energy, male) may make life feel frustrating—or push us into action in the achievement of individual goals.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun is on Virgo 11, “A Boy Molded in His Mother’s Aspirations for Him”.  Direction and shaping in childhood can act as a two edged-sword. Our character can be altered through discipline, experience, and perseverance, which can enhance and/or detract on the spiritual path. Sometimes, personal potential is enhanced by parents and authority figures. It can also bring confusion about who we truly are. Virgo rules mental discernment, and the oracle asks that we review our memories and find the truth of our childhood for ourselves.

Moon is placed on Pisces 11, “Men Traveling A Narrow Path, Seeking Illumination.” The symbol generates an image of the spiritual path, which is wide in the beginning of the journey but narrows near the top. In this chart, Moon (emotions) conjuncts Neptune (mysticism, illusion), indicating vision and direction for those who seek a higher path.

Mercury sits on Virgo 25, “A Flag at Half-Mast in Front of a Public Building”. The imagery refers to the expression of grief and loss for accomplishment and achievement for someone or a cause. Positive appraisal and loss are expressed as a public gesture.

Venus is on Cancer 26, “Guests Are Reading in the Library of a Luxurious Home”. Venus represents love, beauty, and resources. Perhaps, the symbol asks us to take time for self-care, quiet, and relaxation, which is an expression of self-love.

Mars sits on Aries 28, “A Large Disappointed Audience”. Mars is overall energy and assertion, and the large, disappointed audience may refer to the feelings of group consciousness, particularly in response to this particular time. (We may have planned a beautiful year, but everyone feels slightly frustrated with the current circumstances.)

Jupiter is on Capricorn 18, “A General Accepting Defeat Gracefully.” It’s an interesting symbol for Jupiter, which represents expansion and good fortune. However, acceptance of outcomes in life can open our consciousness to new possibilities as well as creating character.(Perhaps, it refers to the energy of this year, which is very different from our expectations.)

Full Moon Forecast: Powerful Energy

The Full Moon appears on Monday, August 3 at 11:58 am. The Full Moon heightens energy and intensity; it increases growth, germination and fruition in the physical world. Sun in Leo indicates the importance passion, drama, and living from the heart. It’s a fire sign, encouraging work on desires, self-expression, and creativity.

The Full Moon sits on Aquarius 12, “People on a Vast Staircase Graduated Upwards”, which may represent ascension/awakening for those connected in humanitarian efforts and/or a higher light level. Aquarius is an air sign, symbolized by the Water Bearer, a star being who pours positive emotion (water) on the planet.

Sun and Moon (emotions) square Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) can heighten moodiness, cause sudden changes in feelings (and outbursts) and create a feeling of instability. On the positive, Uranus supports a positive attitude, independence, and the desire to move forward in a new way.

Mercury (communications) is placed in Cancer, a feminine water sign. In this placement, thoughts and emotions are easily confused and misread, but it can give greater understanding to personal thought processes and lead to compassion for others. Mercury trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which brings a lovely interplay between the rational and intuitive mind. Mercury opposes Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (transformation) in Capricorn.  The oppositions can cause conflict between our desire to communicate our thoughts and the limitation of  a time of isolation and structural change. (Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are three planets, which influence the pandemic.)

Venus (relationships, income) in Gemini squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which can cause emotional reactions and hypersensitivity in relationships. On the positive, it aids in seeing the loveliness of life and artistic creations.

Mars squares (tension) Jupiter (expansion), which heightens the drive to succeed and make bold plans.

Mars squares Pluto (transformation, underworld), indicating a feeling of pressure and intensity to achieve one’s goals.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) sits in Capricorn, an earth sign.  Jupiter trines Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), and the harmonious aspect delivers good luck, opportunity, and a broader vision of life. It can also benefit new ideas and creativity. Jupiter sextiles Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which gives uplifting feelings and a sense of optimism and lightness.

Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation) and Pluto (underworld, transformation) remain in conjunction, which influences the corona virus, changes in the structure of the world, and perception of life on a global level.

  2. Some of aspects cause feelings of frustration. Mars square Saturn brings tests and difficulties. Mars square Jupiter creates the desire to push through limitations, but a slower pace is needed to move through the blocks and tests.
  3. Mercury (communications) opposes Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, making it difficult to succinctly express our thoughts.
  4. Sun and Moon square Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) can denote a feeling of instability—the flux of change. However, Uranus lends support when our consciousness is focused on the positive.
  5. As usual for 2020, it’s not an easy chart, but it offers a great deal to those who want awakening and growth.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun is on Leo 12, “An Evening Garden Party of Adults”, which depicts a break from everyday life and work, which encompasses socialization and the physical beauty of the world.

(True socialization happens among peers with similar interests and desire for growth.)

Moon sits on Aquarius 12, “People on a Vast Staircase Graduated Upwards”. It’s a perfect symbol for awakening humans who desire a higher level of understanding and universal love.  The energy of the moon actually pulls us together on a harmonious vibration.
