Super Full Moon in Capricorn — the article

On June 24th, at 2:40pm EDT, the Moon opposes the Sun in 3.5 degrees of Capricorn. This Full Moon also marks the end of Eclipse season. Yay! We have received our consciousness upgrades and can now move forward with any intentions we set mid-June. For all my Members: If you’d like to learn more about this month’s Full Moon, click here to watch my video

This Full Moon has heightened effects on us for many reasons: first, it is a “SuperFull Moon” (i.e. the Moon is at its closest distance to the Earth).

Secondly, lots of planets are involved in this Super Full Moon chart — Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter, Mercury, Chiron, Uranus, and Mars — and all play an important role, so buckle up!

We have three planets that are stationing (and thus exalted) at the time of this Full Moon — Neptune, Jupiter and Mercury — indicating that something is in our face and demands our awareness; we must pay attention to whatever comes up in connection with those energies.

In addition, we have a fixed T-Square and a Grand Fire Trine in this Full Moon chart, as well as four oppositions, all positively aspected by one of those planets mentioned above (Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune, Chiron and Mars). More details in a moment…

First, let’s take a look at the polarities involved in this Full Moon: The Moon in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn opposes the Sun in protective, feeling-oriented Cancer.

We have a heightened sense that something must be brought into balance and reintegrated; the balance in question is between the connection we have to our feelings and emotional needs, plus our ability to feel emotionally connected to others (symbolized by Cancer), versus our outer obligations or material, practical goals out there in the world (Capricorn).

It’s important to realize that our long-term goals need our attention — and that they could be the very thing that might bring the fulfillment and inner stability we seek. A realistic approach will work best here! 

Ask yourself: Where might the balance point be between the demands of my inner and outer life? If I listened 5% more closely to my feelings, my body, and my intuition, might I be able to find that balance point more quickly?

Capricorn seeks to develop an internalized sense of authority and responsibility. This Full Moon is therefore asking us to look closely at how we balance taking care of ourselves (Cancer), versus how we want to contribute to the world at large (Capricorn) — in other words, where we have reached our limit, and where we need to set some priorities.

Ask yourself: What importance does nourishment have in my life? Do I know when I feel nourished? Physically? Emotionally? Spiritually? Mentally? Do I feel a connection with all of life? What’s keeping me separate, limited, or in fear? Could I be honest about that? And once I have acknowledged what that might be, could I decide to let it go, just for right now?

Any Full Moon also has us look more closely at the denser vibrations or shadow components of the energies involved. With Cancer, this is our ability to…

Solar Eclipse in Gemini — the article

On June 10th at 6:53am EDT, the New Moon (and Solar Eclipse) becomes exact in almost 20 degrees of GeminiSolar Eclipses are extra-powerful New Moons that take place approximately every 6 months — this is the first in 2021 — you may also want to watch my Solar Eclipse video.

During a Solar Eclipse, the Moon momentarily interrupts the normal flow of Solar Radiation, destabilizing existing configurations of energy and reorganizing consciousness to a higher level. Solar Eclipses indicate the beginning of a new experience, project, or cycle.

Eclipses usually come in pairs (Solar and Lunar), and “Eclipse seasons” start approximately 10 days before the first Eclipse of the pair, and continue through the second. 

This particular Eclipse season began on May 16th, 10 days before the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius became exact, and will end with the Full Moon on June 24th, 2021 — in other words, two weeks after the Solar Eclipse in Gemini becomes exact.

While Eclipse season is underway, allow for new templates to download; stay centered and do your best to ground from within — try using conscious breathing and conscious flexibility — and best of all, see if you can move to the “observer position” when it comes to the emotional and mental body. And remember, this won’t last forever: on June 24th, the downloads are complete 😉

Eclipses are a time for clarifying and affirming our highest path. We are bound to experience a release and recalibration of some sort — “old” codes will get deleted and new ones downloaded — and this is especially true in connection with our ability to connect and communicate, our inner dialog, our ability to listen, and our gathering and use of information. This helps us to be more aware of how we interact and what we share.

The Sun and Moon are connected to one of the Moon Nodes during an Eclipse, alternating between North and South Node Eclipses, emphasizing the evolutionary upgrades that are available to us during such times. This is the first North Node Solar Eclipse in Gemini since the Moon Nodes moved into the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity in early May of last year (2020).

North Node Eclipses help us move towards a new exploration of an energy that promotes our Soul’s evolution. They ask us to focus on the energies of the sign involved in the Eclipse (Gemini, in this case) and work with the lighter/higher frequencies of those energies as much as possible. They highlight our ability for individual and collective growth and evolution.

Eclipses are crossroads or turning points along our Soul’s Journey. They are often marked by events or situations that signify a critical shift in our lives, nudging us to either change and grow, or face greater difficulties at the next turning point. In this case, the next turning point will be on September 12th, when the Sun is in Virgo squares this month’s Solar Eclipse degree.

Solar Eclipses, in particular, often correspond to major endings and beginnings. They occur close to the same degree every 19 years, and the last time we had a North Node Solar Eclipse in that same degree and sign was on June 10th, 2002.

We are likely to experience a resonance between now and that time — “resonance”, not repetition — so think back to the Summer of 2002, and ask yourself: Were there any major endings and beginnings? What was important to me back then? If I were to take those priorities to the next level, where would that next level find me?

If you’re looking for more guidance on those questions, I would suggest taking a look at your Natal Chart — the House placement of the Eclipse will indicate which area of life is most ready to embrace new information and rise to a new level of consciousness.

Solar Eclipses are also a good time to go within and seed anything we would like to learn over the next 6 months — we’ll dig into this in more detail towards the end of this article, when we talk about setting Solar Eclipse Intentions.

One major thing to note in this New Moon/Solar Eclipse chart, is that we now have 3 planets in Retrograde motion — and one of them is the ruler of Gemini: Mercury!

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 15-25 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces?  If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly; this is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo, the Moon rules Cancer)

Setting Intentions for a Solar Eclipse is a little different from the regular monthly New Moon process — after all, we are setting them for the whole 6-month Eclipse cycle, rather than just the next 28 days.

Solar Eclipse Intentions are best done 48 hours after the Eclipse becomes exact. We are downloading new templates at the time of an Eclipse, and the energies are quite intense, so we want to wait until it all settles down a little before setting our intentions — that said, we definitely do not want to do this during a Moon void of course.

There are thus two best and most potent times to set your Intentions for this Solar Eclipse:

The first lasts a little over 24 hours, between 6:53am, on June 12th, and 7:16am, on June 13th. The second one runs for 15.5 hours, between 2:22pm, onJune 13th, and 6:53am on Monday, June 14th. Note that all times in this article are given in US Eastern Time — i.e., the New York time zone.

If you live in a timezone other than EDT, and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter, as I post reminders on those platforms when it’s time to set your intentions 😉

Set powerful intentions — remember, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Gemini energy!

Super Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius — the article

On Wednesday, May 26th at 7:14am EDT, a powerful Full Moon in 5.5 degrees of Sagittarius becomes exact. This is a Total Lunar Eclipse of a SuperMoon (i.e., the Moon is closer to the Earth than normal) and as such, this Full Moon’s energy is unusually intense.

Even apart from that, there is a lot to cover with this Eclipse — it is connected to a mutable T-square, with Jupiter as the Focal Point, and it has two Stationing planets: Saturn in Aquarius & Mercury in Gemini!

If you are already a Member of my online community, you can learn more about this month’s Super Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse by clicking here to watch my video

Lunar Eclipses direct our attention to whatever needs to be integrated and balanced, both on the collective and individual levels, over a longer period of time (usually 6 months). Get ready for some big shifts in your life, especially around your relationship with your own belief structures, and around your ability to learn, remain adaptable, and use your “day-to-day mind” intelligently.

Our physical and emotional bodies strongly feel the intensity of it all, so keep in mind: Eclipses ultimately support a shift in consciousness and thus bring us closer to our Soul’s path.

This is the second Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius since the Moon Nodes moved into Gemini/Sagittarius back on May 5th, 2020 — and the Moon Nodes play a crucial role during Eclipses! Feel free to also check out my webinar on those Moon Nodes (if you haven’t seen it yet). We talk about the connection to our own birth charts… and it’s currently available at a discount!

The last Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius in the same degree as this one was on May 26th, 2002Think back to that time: What shifts in perspective happened then? What is possible now?

Let’s take a closer look at this Lunar Eclipse:

The Moon in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius (which is itself aligned with the South Node) is making an opposition to the Sun in curious, quick-witted, versatile Gemini (which is aligned in turn with the North Node).

Full Moons balance two opposing archetypes, and reconcile their Shadow sides — in this instance, Gemini deals with information, intelligence, and communication, while Sagittarius is concerned with meaning, truth, and wisdom.

The Shadow side of Gemini brings…

Because Eclipses are so powerful, they require a bigger orb than a regular Full or New Moon. I usually use a 5º orb instead of 2º… so since this Lunar Eclipse takes place in 5.5º of Sagittarius:

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-11 degrees of Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces? If so, you are more affected by this month’s powerful Super Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Jupiter in Pisces 2021 – 2022

On May 13th, 2021, Jupiter changes signs from freedom-loving, forward-thinking, and objective Aquarius to creative, sensitive, and intuitive Pisces. It will journey in that sign until July 28th, 2021. This is a preview of what’s to come in December of 2021, when Jupiter makes its second move into Pisces on Dec. 28th, this time until May 11th, 2022. There will also be a third pass through Pisces from Oct. 28th until Dec. 20th, 2022.

In our individual natal chart, the position of Jupiter reveals how we express generosity and tolerance, and how we go about trusting others and improving our lives. Where do you look for wisdom and understanding? Where do you need movement and spaciousness? Where do you feel optimistic and have faith that things will turn out ok?

Jupiter represents the principle of expansion — it operates like a magnifying glass. It’s been in Aquarius since Dec. 2020, where that magnifying glass was looking at creating more opportunity for (and through) communities or networks — whether online or local.

The planet urges an expansion of sustainable, long-term visions, and a greater understanding of our potential for a better future — for example, it helped us develop faith in our humanitarian goals, or highlighted a lack of faith in those things. It also showed us more clearly where our alliances lie on a personal and collective level.

Aquarius values both equality and diversity, so we’ve been getting to see what we believe to be true about our various communities or affiliations, and the collective vision for the future — and what stories we’ve been telling ourselves about the same — we also gained new perspectives on our collective experience and our networks of like-minded people.

Jupiter in Pisces brings the magnifying lens to bear on our inner divinity, our ability to receive, our connection to intuition, and our desire to contribute to life from a heart-centered place. The opportunity now is to bring the enthusiastic energies of Jupiter to the unification of all dualities — becoming more fully aware of the oneness of all.

Jupiter in Pisces also promotes a greater understanding of our potential for expanding the union within. This exists always, and we can tap into it at any time — it helps us to have faith in our ability to transcend falsehoods and illusions by tapping directly into Source.

Jupiter is in Pisces until July 28th, 2021, and then again later from Dec. 2021, until May 2022, and then one last time from Oct. 28th until Dec. 20th, 2022. During these three periods, we attract the most good fortune when we are tender, devoted, compassionate, kind, look out for the underdog, and give generously. We value compassion and charity, and are motivated by a universal vision; peaceful personal philosophies and faith in the goodness of life will serve us best.

We are more open to spiritual or creative endeavors. Possibilities for a great heart-expansion and recognition of our underlying interconnectedness are very strong; we are each particularly invited to go within and explore this on a very private or personal level.

We also have an inborn faith in the Universe. Solitude, working alone, and meditation can all bring us great pleasure and a sense of rejuvenation. We are merciful and generous — often anonymously. Jupiter in Pisces helps to create…

Where does Jupiter-in-Pisces fall in your own birth chart? What aspects does it make during this transit? How does a wise response to one house support a more fruitful response to the next? What outward opportunities arise as Jupiter interacts with any of your personal planets? Where will you experience a major expansion until Dec. 2022? Where are you ready to open your heart and trust the larger play of life?

If you’d like more insight into those questions, we will cover Jupiter’s move through Pisces in more detail in the next Forecasting Forum (live on May 28th) — so if you want to know how this planetary movement is impacting you personally, feel free to join us live, or register for the mp4-video-presentation of the live event.

New Moon in Taurus — the article

On May 11th, at 3pm EDT, the New Moon becomes exact in 21 degrees of Taurus. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle. Click here to watch my video on the subject.

As best as you can, get really quiet 24 hours before and after the New Moon becomes exact, and see if you are getting any new messages or ideas. If you are, harvest them, and fold them into any intentions you set for the new Moon cycle — I will talk about this process later in the forecast, and I’ll even give you the very best and most potent times for doing so 🙂

This New Moon sextiles Neptune in Pisces and trines an exalted Pluto in Capricorn. Saturn & Jupiter in Aquarius are also exalted at the time of this New Moon (for different reasons) and we have many more aspects to talk about, all connected either to Mercury in Gemini, or Mars in Cancer.

So, as you can see, lots going on in this New Moon chart, all painting a complex picture with a focus on like-minded people, community, and long-term goals. There is also an opportunity for healing and connecting to our inner sense of knowing.

Before we go into all of these aspects in more detail, however, let’s first talk about the sign of Taurus:

This New Moon in steady, peaceful Taurus places more focus on our interactions with the physical world — you could say that we seek a healthier relationship with “matter”, one in which we are neither too attached, nor too disconnected from things on the physical plane — for example, our bodies, resources (such as money), and the planet we co-inhabit.

We are powerfully reminded to take the time to honor the only planet we can currently live on — The Earth — and honor its resources and beauty.

In much the same spirit, we are invited also to honor ourselves, our bodies, and our talents. This is a good time for reevaluating our relationship to money and possessions, and for discovering what truly makes us happy and fulfilled, so check in with yourself: What came to mind when you read this?

Let’s talk about some of the aspects in this New Moon chart:

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 19-23 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. This is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

This month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would therefore be between 3pm on May 11th and 3pm on May 13th. The only exception would be a 20-minute period in the morning of May 12th — there will be a brief Moon VoC between 8:23am and 8:43am. All of the above times are given in US East Coast-time.

For more info on setting New Moon Intentions click here.

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US East Coast-time), I recommend you join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter as I post reminders on May 11th, 12th and 13th, to let you know when it is the most potent time to set your intentions 😉

Super Full Moon in Scorpio — the article

On April 26th, at 11:32pm EDT, the Full Moon in 7 degrees of Scorpio becomes exact. The Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio opposes the Sun in steady, peaceful Taurus.

This Full Moon has heightened effects on us for two important reasons: first, it is a “Super Full Moon” (i.e. the Moon is at its closest distance to the Earth) — in fact, it is the first of three Super Full Moons in a row! Secondly, Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, is exalted, preparing to go Retrograde at 26.5º of Capricorn — less than 24 hours after the Full Moon becomes exact! All of this could increase emotional volatility but could also facilitate larger shifts in consciousness.

There are lots of other aspects worth mentioning in this Full Moon chart: a Stellium in Taurus, a T-Square with Saturn as the Focus point — and we will address all of them in a moment. If you are currently a Member of my online community, feel free to also watch my Super Full Moon video here.

I should also mention that we will focus on Pluto’s powerful involvement with this month’s Super Full Moon chart, as it relates to our own individual birth charts, in our upcoming Forecasting Forum: click here for more info and to register. 

Also, non-Members can get access to this month’s Super Full Moon video, when registering for April 23rd’s Forecasting Forum.

This Full Moon shows us how far we have come, as well as what we must still release or transform, if we are to manifest what was begun at the time of the New Moon that occurred on April 11th.

For the next two weeks, we seek the balance and integration of two polarities, and are aware that something needs to be brought into alignment. The balance in question is between our physical attachments, aversions, and connections — symbolized by Taurus— and our emotional attachments, aversions, and connections (Scorpio).

The time of the Full Moon is always more extroverted and emotional. This particular one invites us to let go of fears or disempowering behaviors, and thereby break through to the next level of our evolution, individually and collectively.

So, here’s this Full Moon’s central question: As a society, are we living in alignment with our values, with what makes us happy and satisfied? How about as individuals? Do we feel empowered and emotionally fulfilled? Are there any fears in our way to achieving progress? Or any rigid thought processes?

All right, let’s look at the signs involved in this polarity,…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 5-9 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, or Aquarius? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

 

New Moon in Aries — the article

On April 11th, at 10:31pm EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 22.5 degrees of Aries. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle; anything brand-new started in the next two weeks has the chance to get off to a great start. Click here to watch my New Moon video on the subject.

This New Moon chart has 4 out of 10 planets in Aries, as well as 2 asteroids. This Stellium in Aries consists of Chiron, Mercury, Ceres, the Moon, the Sun, and Venus. This asks us to show courage from our heart, to be unafraid to embrace who we are, and inspire others by forging our own path.

Ask yourself: Where am I being called to take a risk and try something new? What feeds my passions? What is the next step toward becoming an increasingly healthy, strong, curious, and flexible person? One who is not afraid to pursue personal goals and desires? One who speaks up for what needs healing in our society around the traditional masculine?

One of the many ways we can demonstrate courage is to allow ourselves to be in the condition of “not knowing” or “beginner’s mind”; at these times, we are more present, and creative potential is heightened. Ask yourself: Where could I bring a “beginner’s mind” to bear? Where do I need to let go of needing to know everything before I begin?

About this Stellium: let’s start with the close alignment between the New Moon and Venus in Aries.

We are invited to actively connect with others and do something enjoyable. Ask yourself: What if I got in touch with my passion for life, just for these next 28 days? What if I could inspire others just by being myself?

The New Moon/Venus alignment in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn, emphasizing that we are at a turning point…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 20-25 degrees of either Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some intentions for this month’s Moon cycle — this process is especially powerful with the New Moon in Aries — and as always, this is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact (and definitely not during a Moon void of course)

So this month, we have two opportune times frames for setting intentions. The first one lasts 9.5 hours, between 10:31pm on April 11th and 8:06am on April 12th; and the second one lasts 33 hours from 1:44pm on April 12th until 10:31pm on April 13th (as always, all times are EDT). For more info on setting New Moon Intentions click here.

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US East Coast-time), I recommend you join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter as I post reminders on April 11th in the late evening, on April 12th in the afternoon/evening, and on April 13th throughout the day, to let you know when it is the most potent time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Libra — the article

On March 28th at 2:48pm EDTthe Full Moon becomes exact in 8 degrees of Libra. All Full Moons bring an opportunity for increased awareness and integration of the traits connected to the relevant Full Moon polarities, especially those that have been neglected or suppressed.

This Full Moon chart has two important emphases: first, it has a line up of planets in Aries – including Chiron — and all oppose the Moon; secondly, Uranus in Taurus quincunxes the Moon while still squaring Saturn in Aquarius! All of this heightens a sense of newness or “beginner’s mind”, but it also creates uncertainty, and emphasizes the “unknown”.

Here is a quote by Charles Eisenstein that fits quite well: “At each junction, we can be aware of what we follow: fear or love, self-preservation or generosity… Every act of compassion, kindness, courage, or generosity heals us from the story of separation…”.

So the question here is: What am I aware of? What will I choose? Where will I focus my mind? My Heart? What might become possible if I got 5% more comfortable with uncertainty?

There are lots of other aspects in this Full Moon chart as well, and we will address all of them in a moment; and if you are already a Member of my online community, feel free to also watch my Full Moon video here.

On the night of March 27/28th, the Moon enters Libra; this starts the energetic build up towards the Full Moon — and almost 13.5 hours later, the Sun in Aries opposes the Moon in Libra.

Ask yourself: How far have I come with the Intentions I set around March 13th’s New Moon? If I’m not where I’d like to be with those intentions, what new course might take me closer to my goals?

The Libra-Aries polarity highlights the spiritual dance between various polarities:
* individual drives/goals and one-on-one relationships
* masculine and feminine
* independence and collaboration

Whether we are single or partnered up, we are all in relationship to someone — any one-on-one relationship counts here — business, personal, health-related, etc.

For the next two weeks, we seek…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 6-10 degrees of Libra, Aries, Capricorn, or Cancer? If so, you may feel the effects of this Full Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

 

New Moon in Pisces – the article

On March 13th, at 5:21am ESTthe Moon aligns with the Sun in 23 degrees of Pisces, marking the beginning of a new Moon cycle.

Feel free to also watch my New Moon video on the subject.

New Moons mark the ending and beginning of a monthly cycle, and are therefore an optimal time to pause, reflect, and set new Intentions for the next 28 days.

This New Moon chart also has four planets in Pisces — including Venus. Due to Uranus’s transit through Taurus, Venus (as that sign’s depositor) has a lot to say about how we can more fully embrace our own unique value.

Venus in Pisces invites us to focus on our inner divinity, our ability to receive, our connection to intuition, and our desire to contribute to life from a heart-centered and grounded place.

Our emotional and physical bodies are giving us the information we need to better connect to ourselves and what we want to contribute out there in the world; if we listen carefully, we will also understand much better the best pace for accomplishing things without overwhelming ourselves.

Neptune is the modern ruler of Pisces, Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces, and Saturn is the traditional ruler of Aquarius, so these three planets play an important role in this New Moon chart. We will talk a little bit about them in a moment, but first let’s talk about Pisces, to see what this New Moon is all about:

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac. It connects us to our spiritual journey, as it represents a reunion with Source/God/the Universe.  At its highest vibrationPisces…

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 21-25 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly for the next 28 days. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Before I talk about New Moon Intentions, let me mention my next FORECASTING FORUM…

This 90+ min. webinar will be an “ASK ME ANYTHING” Special event! Astrology Questions, as well as Coaching Questions are welcome!

You can join me live on Friday, March 26th at 2pm EDT/11am PDT/6pm GMT. If this date and time doesn’t work for you, watch the mp4-video recording of the live event.

To register for this month only, click hereEarly Bird Special available until March 23rd at midnight EDT!!!

If you’d like to join me for FREE every month, become a Star Member on my site. If you are already a Star Member Email me with your question, now!

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. This is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase — so this month, the best time to set intentions would be between 5:21am and 11:38am on March 13th, and then again from 6:44pm on March 13th until 5:21am on March 15th (New York-time).

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), I recommend you join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter as I post reminders on March 13th and 14th throughout the day, and March 15th in the early morning, to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

 

Full Moon in Virgo — the article

The next Full Moon will be “exact” on Feb. 27th, at 3:17am EST in almost 9 degrees of Virgo — and by then, we are halfway through the Lunar cycle that started on Feb. 11th.

Take a look at the New Moon Intentions you set around Feb. 11th, and ask yourself: How far have I come with those Intentions? If I’m not where I’d like to be with them, what new course might bring me closer to my goals?

If you are already a Member of my online community, feel free to also watch my video for more.

A Full Moon is always an opposition between the Moon and the Sun; during these oppositions, we seek balance, alignment and integration around two perspectives that seem like polar opposites. Very often, we experience this through our interactions with others, and since these interactions are also the pathway to resolution, relationships of all kinds are highlighted during Full Moons.

In this case, the Moon in Virgo opposes the Sun in Pisces. Virgo seeks personal and practical wholeness, while Pisces reminds us of a transcendent wholeness — our divinity and interconnectedness with all of life.

Virgo benefits from apprenticeship, whereas Pisces learns to trust inner guidance above all else — when balanced, we are able to discern without judgment, serve without obligation, and love all of creation, including ourselves.

Virgo analyzes, Pisces feels: We are invited to discern what’s real, so we can make healthier choices.

To find the balance between Virgo and Pisces, ask yourself…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point, or personal planets in 7-11 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, or Sagittarius? If so, this month’s Full Moon will affect you more; the same is true for those of us with our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

New Moon in Aquarius – the article

On Feb. 11th at 2:06pm EST, a powerful New Moon in 23 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact; this is the beginning of a new Moon cycle.  I also recommend you watch my video on the subject.

This New Moon is unique in that there is a Stellium of planets in Aquarius — six planets total, to be exact. This highlights anything connected to group experiences — whether large or small, online or in-person, business or personal, spiritual or health-oriented, etc.

This Lunar cycle invites us to go out there and connect (or re-connect) with “our people”. A tribe that resonates, a cause that feels aligned with our principles or belief systems, a connection that serves a larger vision for the future, etc.

The highest and lightest vibration of Aquarius gives us the opportunity to see a clear vision for our life — and we are ready to make the relevant improvements.

Aquarius also deals with the power of ideals, technology, and inventions. We are now more interested than ever in the collective focus on changing group consciousness.

This is an opportunity for all of us to become more aware of our individual impact on the collective: We are all agents of change. Already. Always. That’s why we chose to be here at this time.

At its best, Aquarius stands for equality and diversity, innovation and reform, collaboration and community — we strive for progress. The challenge here is to unite and transcend differences of gender, race, and cultural or religious backgrounds, rather than separating from others, or ostracizing those who are different from us.

To move even further into that higher, lighter Aquarian vibrationask yourself the following questions:

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 21-25 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly.

Finally, let’s talk “New Moon Intentions” 🙂 The New Moon is the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle; this is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact, and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

That means that this month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be any time between 2:23am on Feb. 12th, and 2:06pm on Feb. 13th – (New York Time/US Eastern Time)

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter, as I post reminders when it’s time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Leo — the article

On Jan. 28th at 2:16pm EST, the Moon opposes the Sun in 9 degrees of Leo — and this month’s Full Moon becomes exact. Relationships of all kinds are highlighted.

All Full Moons offer opportunities for us to see things in a new light; they also guide us away from polarization and division, toward balance and integration.

Ask yourself: How far have I come since setting Intentions back on January 13th’s New Moon? What am I aware of at this time?

With the Sun in Aquarius until Feb. 18th, we seek balance; the balance in question here involves the Aquarius-Leo polarity.

As a Member of my online community, if you’d like to learn more about this month’s Full Moon, click here to watch my video.

Aquarius represents a unique vision and approach to life. The classic Aquarian vision is one of interconnected equality — paradoxically, we’re reminded at the same time that the power of unity lies in diversity. Leo, on the other hand, is all about our individual self-expression, creativity, ability to connect to the heart, inner joy.

This Full Moon is our chance to make a more conscious effort to embrace, integrate, and explore the lighter/higher vibrations of Leo. This is a courageous, optimistic, and self-expressed sign, that represents our capacity to love — and our willpower. It signifies the quest to live from our center, our core, our truth — with joy in our heart.

This Full Moon reminds us that everyone has the power to make a difference in the world, small or large — and when we join together, that power grows exponentially. Ask yourself: How could I best honor both my individual self-expression and my interconnectedness with the world? How am I adding my voice (in small ways and large)?

As with all Full Moons, there’s a shadow side to be discussed — the shadow of both signs involved in this Full Moon — and please note that the shadow side of any sign is usually not as comfortable to look at or easy to embrace.

Aquarius‘s shadow side might show up as…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 7-11 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you may feel the effects of this Full Moon more strongly.

New Moon in Capricorn – the article

On Jan. 12/13th at 12am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 23 degrees of Capricorn, launching a new Moon cycle.

This is a good time to go within, to plant a seed for anything we would like to accomplish over the next 28 days, and maybe even beyond. The next section of this forecast will dig into this in more detail — you may also want to watch my New Moon video 🙂

This is the first New Moon in Capricorn since Jan. 5th, 2019, that is NOT also a Solar Eclipse. So, what have we learned about taking responsibility over the past two years? What have we come to understand about setting healthy boundaries? What have we realized about our own limitations? Other people’s limitations? How have our priorities shifted? Our goals? What have we learned about integrity? How much is there still to learn?

It is also the first New Moon of the year, and since Capricorn represents the quest for self-mastery on the physical plane, some useful questions you can ask yourself include:

What is my relationship to self-mastery now, versus in 2018? Am I going about things in a realistic way? Do I respect the laws of matter? What am I willing to undergo to overcome adversity? How committed am I to that?

The highest vibration of Capricorn is self-mastery: the development of responsibility, resourcefulness, reliability, the ability to set realistic goals and healthy boundaries. The next 28 days are a perfect time to work some more on these areas.

As best as you can, prepare for the future, make commitments, and recognize responsibilities — in other words, nurture your dreams in a realistic manner. Focus on setting and achieving practical and attainable long-term goals, one step at a time, one day at a time — this is not about immediate results, it’s about the quality of the foundation you are building.

Capricorn also invites us to set the kind of realistic limits and boundaries that allow everyone involved to learn from the consequences of their choices. Ask yourself: Where in my life am I able to set realistic limits and boundaries? Where am I not? What might I be afraid of when I don’t?

Capricorn relates directly to the level of our maturity. Ask yourself: What would taking 100% responsibility for my life look like? What if I responded to situations in a way that respects and serves all those involved?

Let’s talk about some of the aspects connected to this particular New Moon chart:

This New Moon aligns with Pluto in Capricorn: This conveys an extra-potent message about our perception of physical reality — time and space — and about our relationship to power or to feeling empowered. Ask yourself: If I truly had choice in the matter, what kind of future would I choose to step into? What if I became 5% more aware of my personal power? Where might I have given it away to others? And how might I begin to reclaim it?

Pluto’s involvement could foster an all-or nothing attitude over the next 28 days towards our long-term goals, or our standing in society — in fact, we might become obsessed over those things — and/or it might bring up a fear of “losing control”. It’s important to stay heart-centered and grounded — engage tools or people where possible, to help you let go of your fears and surrender to the Soul power that resides within you.

If you get obsessed about your accomplishments out there in the world, as best as you can, remind yourself to slow down and take breaks. Ask yourself: Am I driven by fear or love/passion? If fear, worry, concerns, etc. are present, could I simply acknowledge that experience?

Close your eyes, and ask yourself: Is what I am afraid of real right now, or is it a projection into the future? If so, could I let go of “wanting” (aka “expecting”) to create this future for myself? Could I choose more powerfully? Could I choose a future that allows me to feel empowered, no matter what the circumstances?

Given that it rules Capricorn, Saturn’s placement in Aquarius plays an important role with this New Moon — and if you’d like to know how Saturn’s journey in Aquarius will impact your personal chart over the next two years, feel free to check out my 90+ minute webinar on the subject, available for purchase on my webinar-page.

As mentioned previously I also have a webinar about the Great Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius, that started a new 20-year social-economic cycle, and a 200-year elemental cycle in late Dec. 2020. Again, feel free to go to my webinar page, if you would like to take a look at that!

Saturn conjuncts Jupiter and Mercury in Aquarius. Aquarius focuses our attention on the collective, on respecting the rights, needs, and gifts of all beings. This particular combo reminds us…

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 21-25 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly.

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle — and the very best time to do this is after the New Moon becomes exact (and definitely not during a Moon void of course).

So this month the two best and most potent times to set intentions would be any time between 12am and 2:22am on Jan. 13th, or between Jan. 13th at 11:44am and Jan. 14th at 4:28am (EST/New York-time).

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter, as I post reminders when it’s time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Cancer – the article

On Dec. 29th, at 10:28pm EST, the Moon opposes the Sun (in almost 9 degrees of Cancer). Relationships of all kinds are highlighted during this time — but with this Full Moon, there is a particularly strong emphasis on family- and business-relationships. If you are already a Member of my online community, feel free to also watch my Members Full Moon video.

This Full Moon shows us how far we have come since the last Solar Eclipse in Cancer (which was exact on June 21st, 2020) when it comes to self-care and any issues connected to family or home — and also how far we have come since November 2018, when the North Node moved into Cancer, and we started our journey towards greater emotional responsibility and self-alignment.

Ask yourself: What have I learned about self-care and where I feel most “at home” over the past two years? What have I learned about my emotional needs? How has an emotional connection to myself and loved ones been of benefit to me? How has it shifted my priorities?

Lots of planets are involved in this Full Moon chart — Mercury, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Neptune — and all play an important role, so buckle up! More about the specifics in regards to all of these planets in a moment…

But first, let’s take a look at the polarities involved with this Full Moon: The Moon in protective, feeling-oriented Cancer opposes the Sun in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn.

We have a heightened sense that something must be brought into balance and reintegrated; the balance in question is between the experience of our feelings and emotional needs (symbolized by Cancer), versus our outer obligations or material, practical goals (Capricorn).

It’s important to realize that we all have limitations and challenges in life — and when we approach those in a nurturing way, taking care of our feeling body and inner baby, and allowing ourselves to receive support from family or “familiar” connections”, we are more likely to overcome those challenges and be realistic about limitations — our own, and other people’s.

Ask yourself: How am I…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 7-11 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, or Libra? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Jupiter in Aquarius until Dec. 2021!

On Dec. 19th, 2020 at 8:07am EST, Jupiter moves from practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn into freedom-loving, forward-thinking and objective Aquarius, where it will journey until May 13th, 2021. It will then revisit Aquarius between July 28th and Dec. 28th, 2021.

Jupiter represents our desire to seek insight through knowledge; some of this planet’s keywords are gratitude, hope, honor, morality, and the law — it is also the planet of possibility, optimism, and growth (including mental and spiritual growth), and is associated with a sense of humor, goodwill, and mercy.

The lower expressions of Jupiter include “Oh, the heck with it”, “I deserve this and more”, “the rules do not apply to me” — generally speaking, too much of a good thing, blind optimism, excess, stretching the truth, overindulgence, and so forth.

In the natal chart, the position of Jupiter reveals how we express generosity and tolerance, it also shows how we go about trusting others and improving our lives. Where do you look for wisdom and understanding? Where do you need movement and spaciousness? Where do you feel optimistic and have faith that things will turn out ok?

Jupiter represents the principle of expansion (it operates like a magnifying glass); it’s been in Capricorn over the last year (2020), where it created more opportunity for (and through) government. It sought an expansion of sustainable, long-term goals, and a greater understanding of our potential for overcoming adversity in the real world — for example, it helped us develop faith in our physical and cultural structures (or highlighted a lack of faith in those things). It also showed us more clearly where our limitations lie as a collective.

Capricorn values both expertise and healthy boundaries, so we’ve been getting to see what we believe to be true about government, authority figures, and collective rules and regulations in 2020 (and what stories we’ve been telling ourselves) — we also gained new perspectives on our collective experience and what we want to leave behind for other generations.

Jupiter in Aquarius brings the magnifying lens to bear on group consciousness, group visions, and networks of like-minded people; the opportunity now is to bring the enthusiastic energies of Jupiter to our communities, creating equality and open-minded exchanges with others.

Jupiter in Aquarius also promotes a greater understanding of our potential for everyone to express their individuality, celebrating each other’s differences. It helps us to have faith in our ability to turn challenges into change when we come together as one mind, one heart, one consciousness.

While Jupiter is in Aquarius (until Dec. 2021), we definitely attract the most good fortune when we are tolerant and fair, inventive, impartial, and cooperative. We value people and personal freedom. Unique perspectives, skills, and talents will serve us most. We are more open to new methods and want to see progress in the world. Possibilities for great tolerance and major humanitarianism are very strong; in particular, we are invited to offer freedom of choice to others.

We are also more able to think outside the box, are more mentally adventurous, ready, willing, and able to learn. We are into “mind expansion”, and are less attached to our values because we are generally more impartial and open-minded now — in fact, an original mind is what we seek. Intellectual stimulation is likewise welcome now, and the pursuit of technological inventions to make the future better and easier for everyone a worthy goal.

Jupiter in Aquarius also helps to create…

As Jupiter squares Uranus in Taurus during the course of its alignment with Saturn in Aquarius, we may become quite eager to make some essential changes in our lives, both collectively and individually.

We will talk in more detail about those Squares in our webinar: “2021: A Look Ahead”  Click here to join us live on Jan. 8th; or click here after Jan. 8th to purchase an mp4-video recording of this webinar.

Where does Jupiter-in-Aquarius fall in your own birth chart? What aspects does it make during the year-long transit? How does a wise response to one house support a more fruitful response to the next? What outward opportunities arise as Jupiter interacts with any of your personal planets? Where will you experience a major expansion until Dec. 2021? Where are you ready to create a network or alliance with others?

If you’d like more insight into those questions, we covered Jupiter’s and Saturn’s alignment in Aquarius in more detail in our last Forecasting Forum — so if you want to know how this powerful planetary alignment is impacting you personally, feel free to purchase the video-presentation of the last webinar — we applied the Jupiter’s and Saturn’s movement to our own birth charts! Click here to purchase our most recent Forum.

Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius – article

On Dec. 14th at 11:17am EST, a powerful New Moon and Solar Eclipse in 23 degrees of Sagittarius becomes exact.

Solar Eclipses are extra-powerful New Moons that take place approximately every 6 months. During a Solar Eclipse, the Moon momentarily interrupts the normal flow of solar radiation, destabilizing existing configurations of energy and reorganizing consciousness to a higher level. Solar Eclipses indicate the beginning of a new experience, project, or cycle.

This is the last of six Eclipses in 2020. While there is a New Moon each month, Eclipses occur only 4-7 times a year, when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are precisely enough aligned. You may also want to watch my Solar Eclipse video.

Eclipses usually come in pairs (Solar and Lunar), and Eclipse season starts 10 days before the first Eclipse (in this case, the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini), and continues through the time of the second Eclipse (for this eclipse season, that would be the Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius ). This Eclipse Season thus started back on Nov. 20th and will last until Dec. 24th, 2020.

While eclipse season is underway, allow for new templates to download; stay centered and do your best to ground from within — try using conscious breathing and conscious flexibility — and best of all, see if you can move to the “observer position” when it comes to the emotional and mental body. And remember, this won’t last forever: on Dec. 24th, the downloads are complete 😉

Eclipses are a time for clarifying and affirming our highest path. We are bound to experience a release of some sort, and a recalibration — “old” codes will get deleted and new ones downloaded, especially in connection with belief systems, social and cultural conditioning, and assumptions we carry around with us. This helps us see from a wider perspective.

The Sun and Moon are connected to one of the Moon Nodes during an Eclipse, switching between the North and South Node Eclipses, emphasizing the evolutionary upgrades that are available to us during such times. This is the first South Node Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius since the Moon Nodes moved into the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity in early May 2020.

South Node Eclipses ask us to release or redefine energies or attachments that no longer serve our Soul’s evolution. They highlight past issues that need our attention, so we can grow beyond our conditioning, individually and collectively.

Eclipses are crossroads or turning points along our Soul’s Journey. They are often marked by events or situations that signify a critical shift in our lives, nudging us to either change and grow, or face greater difficulties at the next turning point.

Solar Eclipses, in particular, often correspond with major endings and beginnings. They occur close to the same degree every 19 years and the last time we had a South Node Solar Eclipse in that same degree was in Dec. 2001.

We are likely to experience a resonance between now and that time — “resonant”, rather than identical — so think back to the Winter of 2001/2002, and ask yourself: Were there any major endings and beginnings? What was important to me back then? If I were to take those priorities to the next level, where would that next level find me?

If you’re looking for more guidance on those questions, I would suggest taking a look at your Natal Chart — the House placement of the Eclipse will indicate which area of life is most ready to release outdated beliefs and social conditioning and go to a new level of consciousness. If that idea appeals, check out my free 30-minute class, “How to Read My Birth Chart”.

Solar Eclipses are a good time to go within, to seed anything we would like to redefine or release over the next 6 months — we’ll dig into this in more detail towards the end of this article, when we talk about setting Solar Eclipse Intentions.

With the Solar Eclipse in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, we seek to expand our day-to-day knowledge and look for a larger perspective. For the next six months, ask yourself

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 18-28 degrees of Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces? If so, you may feel the effects of this extra powerful New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Setting Intentions for a Solar Eclipse is a little different from the regular monthly New Moon process — after all, we are setting them for the whole 6-month Eclipse cycle, rather than just the next 28 days.

Solar Eclipse Intentions are best done 48 hours after the Eclipse becomes exact. We are downloading new templates at the time of an Eclipse, and the energies are quite intense, so we want to wait until it all settles down a little before setting our intentions… We also definitely do not want to do this during a Moon void of course.

There are therefore two best and most potent times to set your Intentions for this Solar Eclipse: the first lasts a little over 13 hours, between 11:17am (on Dec. 16th) and 12:34am (on Dec. 17th) — and the second for almost 34 hours, between 1:27am (Dec. 17th) and 11:17am Friday (Dec. 18th) — (in US Eastern Time — i.e. the New York time zone).

Set powerful intentions — again, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Sagittarian energy! If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter, as I post reminders when it’s time to set your intentions 😉

Lunar Eclipse in Gemini — the article

On Nov. 30th at 4:30am EST, a Full Moon becomes exact in 8.5 degrees of Gemini. This powerful Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse, the first of two Eclipses within a two week-period, offering an opportunity for expanding our thinking and expressing ourselves with confidence and optimism.

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Full Moon slowly dims as it passes through the Earth’s shadow, a Lunar Eclipse therefore stimulates our emotional body and increases our awareness of unconscious patterns and fears. If you are already a Member of my online community, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video for more details.

Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey (on a collective and individual level). All Eclipses transmit new energetic codes and transformative downloads, symbolized by the signs involved: The Moon and the North Node are in chatty, versatile Gemini, while the Sun and the South Node are in adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius. Feel free to also check out my webinar in connection with those Moon Nodes: our collective Soul Journey until Jan. 2022 (if you haven’t seen it yet).

The more receptive we are to these transformative downloads, the easier and more quickly we can integrate them: time in nature, meditation, art, and spiritual endeavors support this integration process and help us be attuned to these evolutionary upgrades.

Lunar Eclipses give us a chance to realize how far we’ve come since the time of the last set of Eclipses — we gain a better insight as to whether we are where we’d like to be, or if it’s time to correct our course.

The last Lunar Eclipse in the same polarity was on June 5th, 2020. This current Eclipse cycle will continue a conversation that started back then around our beliefs and attitudes towards government and how we meet challenges that are coming up as a collective: Could we each take responsibility for our part in that conversation and the stories we are attached to? Are we willing to participate in that conversation in a mature way? Are we hiding behind “old” beliefs and social conditioning?

Are we able to acknowledge our limitations and shortcomings without making others “wrong”? Are we willing to approach this unique collective situation with a curious mind and an open heart?

Now, write down those same coaching questions, and this time substitute “we” with “I”, “our” with “my”, etc. Notice how different the questions sound and feel…

Lunar Eclipses direct our attention to whatever needs to be integrated and balanced on a collective and individual level over a longer period of time. We are invited to get ready for some big shifts in our lives, especially around our relationship with our belief structures, and our ability to learn, stay adaptable, and use our day-to-day mind intelligently.

Our physical and emotional bodies strongly feel the intensity of it all. Just remember: Eclipses ultimately support a shift in consciousness and thus bring us closer to our Soul’s path.

Eclipse season already began on Nov. 20th (ten days prior to the Lunar Eclipse becoming exact)… it will last until Dec. 24th. Feel free to join us live on Dec. 6th at 11:30am EST for the last Forecasting Forum of the year!

We will take a look at the Jupiter-Saturn alignment in Aquarius, which starts a new 20-year social-economic cycle, and a larger 200-year cycle between these two social planets in the Air element! And I will also answer questions about the upcoming Eclipses!

To register for this moth only, click here. Registration also gives you access to the mp4-video recording of the live event. Star Members are automatically registered and will receive a link to join a day before and another on the day of the webinar.

This current Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse has two Quincunxes, a highly exalted Neptune in Pisces — that also squares the Moon Nodes — and a supportive connection to Chiron (the Wounded Healer). I will go into all those in detail in a moment…

As our collective consciousness continues to awaken, what’s been in the shadows comes to the forefront more and more, so we can see it more clearly and deal with it on a conscious level. Lunar Eclipses allow us to see the Shadow aspects of each sign as well.

The consequences of our choices and motivations also become more obvious. It is therefore more important than ever to ask yourself: Am I choosing from love or fear? Love expands, fear contracts. Love unifies, fear divides. What am I experiencing more of? And how could I experience 5% more expansion of the heart? 5% greater unification of mind and soul?

Until Jan. 2022, we will be dealing with the Sagittarius/Gemini polarity, as the Moon Nodes will be moving through those two mutable signs until then — and given this, we will be seeking balance and integration around those two poles — collectively and individually speaking… So let’s look at those signs in more detail:

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 3-14 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, or Pisces? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo, the Moon rules Cancer)

Super New Moon in Scorpio — the article

On Nov. 15th at 12:07am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 23 degrees of Scorpio, beginning a new Moon cycle. This New Moon brings us closer to the beginning of Eclipse season, which starts on Nov. 20th — my next Full Moon video will be about the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini.

This New Moon is also a SuperMoon. “SuperMoons” occur when the Moon becomes either Full or New while unusually close to the Earth and are therefore more powerful. They generate greater gravitational and electromagnetic forces and therefore increased effects on our physical, mental, and emotional bodies. This also facilitates greater shifts in consciousness. This is the third of three Super New Moons in a row.

With the Super New Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, our focus is directed to our intimate relationships, and our deepest desires and fears; if you’d like to learn more about this Lunation, check out my video on the subject, here

Scorpio is the second water sign of the zodiac, so it relates not only to the depths of our own psyche, but also to the ecstasies and traumas of relationships. Before we jump in and talk about the Scorpio energy and how to understand it better and connect to it, let me mention that with this Super New Moon we are also dealing with two exalted planets, both moving much slower at this time:

Mars, the traditional ruler of Scorpio, is currently in Aries and still exalted due to its station; it just started to change directions again on Nov. 13th (ending its 9-week Retrograde phase) — and Neptune is also exalted over the next several weeks, as it is preparing to end its 5-months Retrograde phase — for more on those planetary movements, in connection with our own birth charts, get the “Mars in Aries & Neptune in Pisces Exalted”. Click here to purchase this 99min. webinar (if you haven’t seen it yet).

Star Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording and enjoy watching it! I sent it out on Nov. 8th late evening 😉

In connection with Mars, ask yourself: What has come up for me since July 25th around self-identity, aggression, or personal passions? What, if anything, have I already revised, reprocessed, or redone since Mars went retrograde back on Sept. 9th? How will this new connection to myself, and the things I identify with, impact the next steps in my life?

In connection with Neptune, ask yourself: What have I learned since June 23rd about trusting the flow of life and my intuitive voice? My intuitive sensing? How might this understanding help me interact more from a “loving heart”? How might this impact our moving forward collectively?

The gift of compassion and forgiveness, the gift of an open heart that seeks to understand, is our gift to the world and to the collective journey — even when it is so hard sometimes to wrap our minds around how others react or behave in certain situations.

The Station phase of Neptune allows us to fully see how an open, forgiving heart can shift our experience and our interactions with others; ask yourself: What’s in my present awareness? What asks for my attention when it comes to resting, trusting, and allowing?

What’s confronting me around a long-term dream of mine? When I tune into myself, what do I feel connected to? What if I tune into life itself?

Neptune in Pisces has been in a Square to the current Moon Nodes in Gemini-Sagittarius since mid-September 2020, and this will continue until late February 2021. Its current Station phase will give this Square more weight between Nov. 12th and December 18th.

Notice when your busy mind distracts you from the present moment, when your beliefs or assumptions take you on a detour, away from what you are sense is true in this moment, and when “being right” becomes more important than “being connected” or “coming from a whole-heart”.

When you notice any of the above, ask yourself: How might a moment of silence bring me back to what’s here now? Might it allow me to drop back into my heart? Might it support me in finding a heart-connection with myself and others?

Now, let’s talk about Scorpio and some of the other aspects in this New Moon chart: Scorpio is associated with…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 21-25 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo or Aquarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase. So this month, the best time to set intentions would be any time between 12:07am until 6:13am on Nov. 15th; then again from 10:47am (on Nov. 15th) until 12:07am on Nov. 17th — New York Time/US Eastern Time

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (that’s the US East Coast time zone), feel free to join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter. I will be posting reminders on Nov. 15th early morning and afternoon/evening, on Nov. 16th throughout the day and night, to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Taurus — the article

On Oct. 31st at 10:49am EDTthe Full Moon in 8.5 degrees of Taurus becomes exact. If you are a Member of my online community, feel free to watch my video on the subject.

All Full Moons offer opportunities for us to see things in a new light — and they guide us away from polarization and division, toward balance and integration. Full Moons also illuminate the truth and consequences of our choices.

The Sun is in Scorpio and the Moon is in Taurus; not only that, we are also dealing here with a Moon/Uranus alignment in Taurus — and with two exalted Retrograde planets, that are slowing down to end their various Retrograde phases: Mercury in Libra and Mars in Aries. Their energy feels stronger inside of us — and because of the Retrograde component, this is an inner experience, an intuitive process.

You may recall that I talked a little about the Mercury Retrograde component in the last New Moon video and in my “Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio-Libra” webinar (which is still available for purchase until Nov. 3rd, for those of you who are not yet Star Members).

We will also address the exalted Mars component in our next Forecasting Forum on Nov. 8th. Feel free to join us, if you would like to know how Mars’ inward journey since Sept. 9th will impact what comes next for you.

There is currently an Early Bird Special that is available until Nov. 5th! So feel free to take advantage of that, unless you are already a Star Member — you guys are automatically registered and will receive an email to join us live, the day before the live event, and the mp4-video recording within 24 hours of the live event.

That’s it for announcements and logistics, back to the Full Moon…

Let’s take a look at the Scorpio/Taurus polarity: This Full Moon has both a Taurus and a Scorpio spotlight — one spotlights our relationship to our physical body, what we value on the physical plane, and the planet we live on (Taurus) — while the other highlights our relationship to emotional authenticity, intimacy/sexuality, empowerment/disempowerment, death/rebirth, endings/beginnings (Scorpio) — it is asking us to recognize our deepest desires and truest motivations.

You can ask yourself with this Full Moon: What do I truly value? What deserves my attention, appreciation, and care? Which of my values stem from social conditioning? Which need to change?

At its best, Scorpio is associated with…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 6-11 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius, or Leo? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Super New Moon in Libra — the article

On Oct. 16th at 3:31pm EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in almost 24 degrees of Libra, beginning a new Moon cycle.

New Moons are introverted times when we go within to learn with what we wish to align ourselves for the next 28 days. This New Moon is also a SuperMoon. These occur when the Moon becomes either Full or New while at its closest distance to the Earth and are therefore more powerful.

This is the second of three Super New Moons in a row. They generate greater gravitational and electromagnetic forces and therefore increased effects on our physical, mental, and emotional bodies. This also facilitates greater shifts in consciousness.

With the New Moon in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra, we are invited to focus on win-win situations, fair exchanges, and harmony (within our relationships and with our general environment). However, this New Moon chart has three oppositions and one T-Square.

The Focus Point of this T-Square is the Jupiter-Pluto-Saturn line up in Capricorn, which indicates that we are experiencing some stress or challenges around our long-term goals, obligations, and social structures or limitations in general. Click here to watch my New Moon video to learn more about this.

There are plenty of challenging aspects in this Super New Moon chart, and that might keep us off-balance — to say nothing of the Pluto and Mercury Station phases, that are still both intensified, Mercury in Scorpio (and having gone Retrograde on Oct. 13th), and then of course Mars in Aries is still in its Retrograde phase until Nov. 13th.

More about all those details in a moment…. I just want to mention quickly the latest webinar I recorded on Oct. 4th — we discussed the Mercury Station & Retrograde phase in Scorpio, and how it is connected to the Pluto Station in Capricorn and how all of this looks in relationship to our own Birth charts.

If you want to know how these planetary Stations are impacting you personally right now, click here and add the “Mercury Retrograde in ScorpioLibra webinar to your cart

Ok, let’s get back to the New Moon — and specifically, the Libra component of this New Moon chart…

All relationships begin with our relationship to ourselves — everything “out there” is a reflection of “in here”… Ideally speaking, interacting with another person is a co-creative, equal exchange — we must be centered within ourselves, yet also tuned into each other, all the while responding to the rhythm of life.

Here are some useful questions to ask yourself for this new Moon cycle: What does an “equal relationship” look like? Where is the balance point? What comes up for me when I hear the phrase “the art of relationship”?

As the seventh sign in the zodiac, Libra represents a major turning point, one that invites us to investigate ourselves through the lens of “the other” (by relating on a one-on-one level).

Anything we haven’t mastered from the six signs that precede Libra, we bring to all of our relationships, attracting people who mirror back to us our relationship with ourselves: Libra thus invites us to see all of our issues, resolve them, and become whole.

Ask yourself: What if harmony and peace were mine to create within me first?

The Libra energy encourages us to…

Here is a beautiful quote from a Newsletter I received. I already shared this on my Facebook page and on Instagram, but for those of you who haven’t seen it yet, please read it and share it with your friends and family, if it resonates:

“We encourage you to focus on solutions rather than battling problems. We encourage you to focus on supporting health and vitality, rather than battling illness. We encourage you to focus on the political ideals you love rather than focusing with vitriol on that which you hate. Your actions might look identical, but your energy, your emotions, and therefore what you attract, would be totally different…. The Sun doesn’t fight or hate the darkness of night, instead it loves to share its shine. You can’t get rid of an ideology you despise, but you can empower one you love. Stop the struggles with one another. Stop battling yourselves. Start instead empowering, enlivening, and focusing upon that which you wish to love and support, and even when you feel the need to battle something in your current world, do it with love for what you desire, for in that reality every soul will “win.” — Messages from Ann & the Angels, visionsofheaven.com

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 22-26 degrees of Libra, Aries, Capricorn or Cancer? If so, you may feel the effects of this Super New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (since the Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best set soon after the New Moon becomes exact, and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase — so this month, the best time to set intentions would be any time between 3:31pm and 6:11pm on Oct. 16th, or between 1:05am on Oct. 17th, and 3:31pm, Oct. 18th (New York-Time).

If you live outside the EDT timezone (i.e. US East Coast time), I recommend you join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on Twitter; I will be posting reminders to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Aries – article

On Oct. 1st, at 5:05pm EDT, the Sun opposes the Moon in 9 degrees of Ariesthe Moon’s entry into Aries on Sept. 30th in the late evening, starts the build up towards this Full Moon. The Moon in pioneering, fast-paced Aries makes an opposition to the Sun in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra.

Generally, a Full Moon brings our attention to our “emotional body”, increasing our awareness of what has been suppressed or ignored. This is especially true for this particular Full Moon — for much of this month, we are invited to experiment with new perspectives on self-care, family, feeling at home (or feeling safe), and expanding the exploration of our emotional bodies. If you are a site Member, you may also want to watch my video on the subject here

The Aries/Libra polarity also directs our awareness to the roles we identify with in our various one-on-one relationships — and this Full Moon is thus a call to take action on those roles.

In particular, it brings the focus to healing issues around “independence”, so ask yourself: Where do I notice a wounding around assertiveness? How can I bring compassion to that wound? Do I need to be more accommodating? Less? Where have I been too independent? Too dependent? What roles or contracts need to be healed? Or at least accepted for what they are?

This also involves the balance of feminine and masculine energies within ourselves, our relationships, and our world. Ask: Where have these energies gone out of balance? What happens when there is too much masculine? Too much feminine?

On the day of the Full Moonthe Moon conjuncts Chiron in Aries; this has lots of potential for healing around the “mother archetype” and our past in general. We may feel more sensitive and insecure about what we identify with — and around our ability to be assertive.

Ask yourself: What are my sensitivities when it comes to self-identity? What limits me?What am I feeling most insecure about? What if this feeling was an invitation for self-compassion, self-acceptance, and self-nurturing? How might engaging with myself in that fashion bring me closer to myself? How might being accepting of myself despite (or even including) my self-doubt make me a more compassionate collaborator and ally?

The Sun in Libra quincunxes Uranus in Taurus. This aspect operates more on an internal level — an unexpected turn of events could leave us uneasy or unsettled. This could also indicate…

All of this is especially true for those of us with personal planets or points in 7-11 degrees of Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer (the personal planets are the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars; personal points are the Ascendant or MC).

Super New Moon in Virgo – the article

On Sept. 17th at 7am EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 25 degrees of Virgo, marking the beginning of a new Moon cycle. Feel free to click here and watch my New Moon video on the subject.

Not only is this the beginning of a new Moon cycle, it is also a “SuperMoon“; these occur when the Moon becomes either Full or New while at its closest distance to the Earth.

SuperMoons generate greater gravitational and electromagnetic forces and therefore increased effects on our physical, mental, and emotional bodies. This, in turn, facilitates greater shifts in consciousness.

This Super New Moon also has an abundance of planets in Earth signs, similar to the last Full Moon (that was exact on Sept. 2nd). The Moon & the Sun in Virgo, Jupiter, Pluto & Saturn in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus. This means that our physical & structural realities, and the sustainability of those realities, take the forefront on both the individual and collective levels.

Ask yourself: Is my current life — its form and how it’s set up structurally — sustainable as it is? What if “simplifying my life” supported my current structures?

There are also four stationing planets in this New Moon chart: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto!

This means all four of these planet’s energies are exalted, making their vibrations louder — something is “in our face” in relation to these energies for the next month, demanding our attention and awareness. I will talk more about this below, but first let’s look at the Virgo energy of this Super New Moon:

Virgo provides an opportunity to learn about being of service — and what it might mean to strengthen our focus on improving our daily routines — getting organized, for example — and taking care of health matters.

This New Moon cycle will thus be a great time to begin new projects that demand attention to detail, list-making, and taking pride in “small” accomplishments. We might start a new health regimen, perhaps by paying close attention to our diet; we could also set up specific routines that help us manage our lives in constructive and mindful ways.

This cycle is all about handling the nitty-gritty details of our day-to-day life in an organized, step-by-step fashion, so we can free our minds of clutter. Where could you use more open space?

Things to watch out for…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 23-27 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

So this month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be between 7:00am and 7:42am on Sept. 17th; and then again from 2:56pm on Sept. 17th until 7:00am on Sept. 19th (New York-time).

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (that’s the US East Coast time zone), feel free to join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter. I will be posting reminders on Sept. 17th and 18th throughout the day, and on Sept. 19th in the morning, to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Pisces — article

On Sept. 2nd, at 1:22am EDT, the Sun opposes the Moon in 10 degrees of Pisces. The Moon in creative, free-flowing Pisces makes an opposition to the Sun in detail-oriented, practical Virgo. If you are already a Member of my online community, you may also want to watch my video on the subject: click here.

With this Full Moon, we are dealing with two stationing planets — Mars & Jupiter — both of which we will investigate in more detail during our upcoming Forecasting Forum on Aug. 30th. Jupiter in Capricorn is preparing to end its 4-month Retrograde phase on Sept. 12th, and is therefore exalted; Mars in Aries is preparing to start its 9-week Retrograde phase on Sept. 9th, and is also exalted.

We are getting ready to retrace our steps (Mars), and are looking for the moral high ground when it comes to our long-term goals or social structures (Jupiter). For a more in-depth interpretation of your own chart, feel free to get the Mars in Retrograde webinar here (unless you are already a Star Member — in that case, check your email, webinar was sent to you on Aug. 30th in the evening).

This Full Moon has six planets in Earth signs: The Sun & Mercury in Virgo, Uranus in Taurus, and Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter in Capricorn. A heavy concentration in Earth signs focuses our attention on our relationship with our body, money, resources, and the Earth.

Now let’s first address this Full Moon’s polarities: The Virgo/Pisces polarity has to do with our ability to connect the head with the heart, logic with intuition, matter with spirit. So the question is: how do we integrate Pisces and Virgo?

This may seem a challenging question, given Virgo’s leaning toward detailed, analytical understanding, contrasted with Pisces’ call to open our heart and allow for all (including things that seem paradoxical to the mind). In fact, on an energetic level there is no separation, everything is interconnected — we need both left- and right-brain (the logical and the creative).

Ask yourself: What if nothing and no one were separate? Appearing to be different, yes, but not separate…

The mind acts like a filtering mechanism that helps us to focus and function more efficiently. Virgo analyzes, whereas Pisces feels, senses. Virgo seeks physical wholeness, Pisces reminds us of a greater wholeness — a spiritual wholeness — our interconnectedness with all of life, the allowing of all the mysteries of life.

To be at its best, Virgo aims for practical applications and to be of service, while Pisces learns to listen to inner/intuitive guidance above all else, using its imagination to bring love and light into this world, to sprinkle mystery fairy dust, and to create Paradise on Earth.

When these two archetypes are balanced within, we discern without judgment, serve with an open heart, and improve our daily lives without getting hung up on timing or perfectionism, bringing love and compassion to all of life’s apparent curveballs.

That said, let’s also talk about the shadow side of those signs, as we do with all Full Moons:  Virgo’s shadow side is…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 8-12 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you are more affected by this Full Moon — this is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

New Moon in Leo – the article

On Aug. 18th, at 10:42pm EDTthe Moon aligns with the Sun in 26.5 degree of Leo — in other words, the New Moon will be exact. To watch my New Moon video click here.

The New Moon in fun-loving, extroverted, expressive Leo has us looking for heartfelt experiences. It’s important for us to express ourselves, to learn about love — and in particular, to learn about how those things work together to help us create from the heart and from a place of joy.

Think about the keywords for this self-expressed fire sign: “proud, generous, hospitable, caring, warm, authoritative, active, open, fun-loving”… How could you live into those words?

Leo is ruled by the Sun, symbol of consciousness and the unique light we came to shine in this lifetime — this is what we were born to explore and express — so ask yourself: Where could I shine my unique light more brightly? What brings me joy? Not just in general… but in this very moment?

Leo also represents our creativity: there are as many ways to be creative and self-expressed as there are “selves” — indeed, we are all creators — we create with every thought, word, and action.

Creativity requires innocence, curiosity, courage, and play. To live it out, we must tap into the unique spark inside of us in a joyful way — and allow ourselves the freedom to make mistakes — creativity thrives on love and permission and is stifled by judgment and fear.

Take a moment to contact your “free inner child” — that place inside that is ready to play and create. What might encourage that inner child to come out and play? If you aren’t sure, there’s no need to guess: Try asking it gently and directly…

Mercury currently also moving through Leo, adding more weight to the Leo-energies; as Mercury closely aligns with the New Moon in Leo, it encourages us to…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 24-29 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, or Scorpio? Or do your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer? This New Moon may feel stronger to you…

And last, but definitely not least: the New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle; the best time for the intention-setting process is soon after the New Moon becomes exact, and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

That means the best time to set intentions this month would be during the almost three hour period between 10:42pm on Aug. 18th and 1:38am on Aug. 19th — or during the next slot (which is much longer), between 4:20am on Aug. 19th and 10:42pm on Aug. 20th (as always, all times are in EDT — the New York timezone).

For more info about Setting Intentions, click here.

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US East Coast-time), I recommend you join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter, as I will be posting reminders on Aug. 18th, 19th and 20th to let you know when is the best time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Aquarius — article

On Aug. 3rd, at 12pm EDTthe Full Moon becomes exact in almost 12 degrees of Aquarius. The Moon in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius opposes the Sun in fun-loving, expressive Leo. If you are already a Member of my online community, you can click here to watch my video about this Full Moon 😉

Uranus in Taurus (the modern ruler of Aquarius), is exalted at the time of this Full Moon, due to its station phase (it is preparing to go retrograde.) Uranus also squares the Full Moon polarity of Aquarius-Leo, while Mars in Aries squares the Jupiter/Pluto alignment in Capricorn at the time of the Full Moon. These are the major themes of this Full Moon chart and we will address them in detail in a moment.

We will also talk in more detail about both of these planetary patterns, in relationship to our own birth charts, in my next Forecasting Forum on Aug. 9th. Feel free to join us live, or register to get the mp4-video presentation of this webinar, to see how these transits are impacting you personally.

As always, Star Members are automatically registered, and if you are currently a Universal Member, stay tuned: I will talk more about this again towards the end of this article 😉

The Moon in Aquarius opposes the Sun in Leo; this highlights the power of our individual creativity and the exponential potency of collaboration. Each of us is invited to reclaim ourselves, and add our voice, heart, and hands to something that has meaning for us.

The invitation here is to dare to be different, and to remember how we are all part of a larger whole. The highest quest of Leo leads to authentic Self-expression: to embody our gifts, shine our light, and live our truth. The highest task of Aquarius, on the other hand, is the attainment of unity in diversity, where everyone’s uniqueness is honored and included.

When we align our head with our heart, we feel our interconnectedness with all of humanity, and we create and connect from love instead of fear. Given that Leo represents our individual self-expression and Aquarius our vision for humankind, a question is raised: How can we best achieve a balance between these two energies? Or perhaps even an integration?

For the next two weeks, we’ll be looking for answers to this question, as we might become more aware that something is out of alignment.

Even the brightest of Full Moons has a shadow side — so let’s take a look at the shadow of both signs involved in this Full Moon — and please note that the shadow side of any sign is usually not as comfortable to look at or easy to embrace.

As always with shadow aspects of ourselves, we need to beware of getting triggered and jumping to conclusions; we need to make sure we take time to respond rather than react.

By the way, if you are reading this before July 31st, you can still get a huge discount on my webinar with the same title: React vs. Respond. Click here for more info or to purchase

Back to the shadow sides of this Full Moon — let’s start with Leo’s shadow side:

This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (since the Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer).
