Jupiter in Capricorn until Dec. 2020! – article

On Dec. 2nd, 2019 at 1:20pm ESTJupiter moves from adventurous, enthusiastic Sagittarius into practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Dec. 19th, 2020.

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’s been in Sagittarius over the last year (2019), where it sought the bigger picture, new perspectives, expansion, and higher learning of some kind — imagine a powerful lens, searching, magnifying.

Sagittarius values both freedom of movement and the truth, so we’ve been getting to see what we believe to be true about ourselves, life, and others in 2019 (and what stories we’ve been telling ourselves, too) — and we also wanted to go full steam ahead, no matter what the direction.

With Jupiter in Capricorn, that magnifying lens now swings over to long-term goals and worldly achievements; the opportunity now is to ground the enthusiastic energies of Jupiter and commit to a path that we have been visualizing or toying with over the last year (2019).

Jupiter in Capricorn also promotes a greater understanding of our potential for overcoming adversity in the real world; it also helps us develop our ability (or shows us our inability) to have faith in our higher Selves, our divinity, here on earth.

For the next 12.5 months, we definitely attract the most good fortune when we are…

Jupiter will connect with the South Node in 8º of Capricorn in January 2020, around the same time that Saturn aligns with Pluto in 22º of CapricornJupiter then aligns with Pluto in 24º of Capricorn first in March/April, then in June/July, and then again in November 2020Jupiter will also be within 5 degrees of Saturn towards the end of the year: Nov/Dec 2020. As Jupiter aligns with Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn during the course of its transit, we may become quite power-hungry or status-conscious.

We will talk in more detail about those alignments in our webinar: “A Look Ahead – Preview of 2020”  Click here to join us live on Dec. 16th; or click here after Dec. 16th, 2019 to purchase an mp4-video recording of this webinar.

Where does Jupiter-in-Capricorn 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 one? What outward opportunities arise as Jupiter interacts with any of your personal planets? Where will you experience a major expansion until Dec. 2020? Where are you ready to make a solid commitment?

If you’d like more insight into those questions, we also covered the Jupiter movement into Capricorn in more detail in our last Forecasting Forum — if you want to know how this planetary movement is impacting you personally, feel free to purchase the video-presentation of the last webinar — we applied the Jupiter movement to our own birth charts! Click here to purchase the “Jupiter in Capricorn until Dec. 2020“- webinar

New Moon in Sagittarius – article

On Nov. 26th at 10:06am EST, the New Moon in 4 degrees of Sagittarius becomes exact. With the New Moon in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, we seek to expand our day-to-day knowledge and look for a larger perspective. Also feel free to watch my New Moon video on the subject

For the next four weeks, ask yourself: What philosophies most resonate with me? What universal truths feel immediately in alignment with my direct experience of life so far? What stories have I been telling myself about life? Where is my understanding on life? Do I see the glass as half-full or half-empty? Do I shy away from new adventures or thrive on exploring new territory?

Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, is still on its own sign until Dec. 2nd. This is our last chance to step into a new adventure and experience some personal growth, before Jupiter moves into sobering, practical, ambitious Capricorn.

If you want to know how this one-year Jupiter transit through Capricorn might impact you personally, I invite you to purchase my 105 minute webinar on the subject: click here, or for a quick preview check out this 17-minute excerpt of the webinar

You can also get the whole webinar for FREE if you join as a Star Member of my online community by Dec. 2nd! Any general questions, feel free to reach out to: info@AstrologerCoach.com

Back to the New Moon chart:
Anything that expands our perspective is of interest to us, especially until Dec. 2nd; this could involve things like travel, higher education, foreign cultures, or the search for a higher “meaning of life” and our existence on this planet. Ask yourself…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 2-6 degrees of Sagittarius, Gemini, 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).

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 times to set intentions would be any time between 10:06am Tuesday late morning (Nov. 26th) until 5:50am Thursday morning (Nov. 28th); and then again from 7:33am until 10:06am, also on Thursday morning (Nov. 28th). (EST- New York-time)

Note, however, that there is a Moon void of course on Thursday early morning — it runs from 5:50am until 7:33am EST. Don’t set your intentions during those 103 minutes — instead, allow intuition to surface possible intentions while you wait. For more info on setting New Moon Intentions, click here

If you live outside the EST 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 on Nov. 26th, 27th and 28th to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

PS: Since this is the last New Moon before Eclipse season begins, I want to invite you to join me either live on Dec. 16th or virtually after the 16th, to talk about the upcoming Eclipses as well as a Look at the whole year of 2020!

Feel free to register here  — if you are not a Member of my online community yet, registration also includes access to the next Members Full Moon video. And, best of all! If you join as a Star Member by Dec. 2nd, the Monthly Forecasting Forum is included in your Membership and you will also get the “Jupiter in Capricorn” webinar for FREE!

Full Moon in Taurus — article

On Nov. 12th at 8:34am EST, the Full Moon in almost 20 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 — and this particular Full Moon provides a double dose of that.

The Sun is in Scorpio and the Moon is in Taurus; not only that, we are also dealing here with a Sun/Mercury alignment in Scorpio — and with Mercury being retrograde, its energy feels stronger inside of us. Because of the Retrograde component, this is an inner journey, an intuitive process. You may recall that I talked a little about this in the last New Moon video and in my “Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio” webinar  (which is still available for purchase until Nov. 13th!)

We can ask ourselves here: What regrets, resentments, and misunderstandings need to be reconciled? Mercury Retrograde helps us recognize the part we played, the lessons we learned, and the necessity of forgiving everyone involved (even including ourselves).

Because of its retrograde status, Mercury will spend a little over two months in Scorpio, the sign most concerned with emotionally authentic relationships. This provides extra opportunities for integrating our “shadow” and healing any relationships issues connected to intimacy, honesty, or trust — and the latter may include core issues around shared resources and power struggles. (Oct. 3rd until Dec. 9th, 2019)

Neptune in Pisces is stationing at the time of the Full Moon, and therefore exalted, bringing a heightened sensitivity towards our surroundings (including fellow humans and other beings); a gentler, more intuitive approach works very well here.

We also get a chance to see how far we have come since the New Moon phase began on Oct. 27th – 28th, so ask yourself:
How far have I come in regards to investigating or understanding my deepest desires? How am I doing with owning the previously denied or rejected parts of myself? What might the next step be down that path? What decisions could I make over the next two weeks that might support me on this journey?

Now let’s look at the Scorpio/Taurus polarity in more detail:
This Full Moon has both a Taurus and a Scorpio spotlight — one spotlights our relationship to our…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 18-22 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).

New Moon in Scorpio — article

On Oct. 27th at 11:39pm EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 4.5 degrees of Scorpio, beginning a new Moon cycle. This New Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio brings our focus to our intimate relationships and deepest emotional desires; if you’d like to learn more about this Lunation, check out my video on the subject 🙂 (will be posted by Oct. 21st in the evening)

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.

Mercury in Scorpio is exalted at the time of this New Moon (due to its station), so we are more aware of our thinking patterns, particularly our tendency to think in extremes or absolutes.

Mercury will come to a halt on Oct. 31st and start its 3-week Retrograde phase. While it is exalted (between Oct. 24th and Nov. 4th), check in with yourself and ask: Is my mind drawn to worst-case scenarios? Am I obsessing over something that feels disempowering? What are my motivations? Am I coming from fear? Self-protection? Or from love? What would it be like to live life fully and completely, feeling empowered in my choices? What will get me 1% closer to that right here and now?

Speaking of the “here and now”, if empowerment only existed in the “now” moment, could I surrender my fears or concerns connected to the past or the future, and simply be present in the here and now? What if I trusted my Higher Self enough to release any suspicious, fearful, or protective thoughts that may arise?

Check to see: Am I ok right now? If I am, is it at least possible that I will be ok in the next moment? And the next?

Feel free to also check out my video presentation about the upcoming Mercury Retrograde phase, to see how all of this is impacting you personally — to purchase this webinar, click here.  Before you invest in the whole 99 min. webinar, feel free to watch a 23-min excerpt here.

Star and SuperStar Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording — and enjoy watching it!

Scorpio also deals with our Shadow issues. The “Shadow” is all the suppressed, denied, or undeveloped qualities of our personality — and wherever we have yet to fully integrate these disowned aspects, we feel disempowered, and are left vulnerable to manipulation or domination.

Furthermore, what we reject in ourselves, we often project onto others — we may experience the shadow as explosions with others or implosions within ourselves. That which we disown, owns us; whatever we resist, persists. So, what Shadow issues need to be addressed over the next four weeks?

Here are some questions to help you reclaim your projections…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 2-7 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 11:39pm (Oct. 27th) and 1:34pm (Oct. 29th); then again from 5:58pm until 11:39pm (on Oct. 29th) — New York Time/US Eastern Time

If you live in a timezone other then EDT (US East Coast-time), feel free to join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter.

Full Moon in Aries — article

On Oct. 13th, at 5:08pm EDT, the Sun opposes the Moon in 20 degrees of Aries — 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 direct our attention toward deeper self-care and more authentic connections to our emotional bodies. If you are a site Member, you may also want to watch my video on the subject

The Aries/Libra polarity 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 “independence”, so ask yourself: Where do I need to be more assertive? More accommodating? Where have I been too independent? Too dependent? What roles or contracts need to be revisited?

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 Sun in Libra sextiles Jupiter in Sagittarius, and the Moon in Aries trines Jupiter. We feel an enthusiasm for personal achievement and exploration; in particular, we have an urge to explore something new that helps us develop an all-around understanding of the bigger picture. Focusing on…

All of this is especially true for those of us with personal planets or points in 18-22 degrees of Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer (the personal planets are the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars; personal points are the Ascendent or MC).

New Moon in Libra — article

On Sept. 28th at 2:26pm EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in almost 5.5 degrees of Libra, beginning a new Moon cycle.

New Moons are introverted times, when we go within to learn what we wish to align ourselves with for the next 28 days; with this New Moon in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra, this will likely be win-win situations, fair exchanges, and harmony (within our relationships and with our general environment). Check out my New Moon video to learn more about this. (posted by Sept. 24th)

Even though we have four planets in Libra at the time of this New Moon, including Venus (the ruler of Libra), harmony and balance is not something that is easily achieved with this lunation. We have plenty of challenging aspects in this New Moon chart, that might keep us off-balance — to say nothing of the Pluto Station phase that has been intensifying since Sept. 22nd, and is coming to a complete halt on Oct. 3rd, only 5 days after the New Moon becomes exact.

More about those details in a moment…. I just want to mention quickly that if you missed our FORECASTING FORUM on Sept. 19th, you may want to purchase the mp4-video presentation of this event — we discussed the Pluto Station in Capricorn (the planet is getting ready to go direct), and its relationship to our own Birth charts, and went over the Saturn Station as well.

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 really “inside us”… 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: 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 “relationship” (i.e. relating on a one-on-one level). We bring with us anything we haven’t mastered from the six signs that precede Libra to all our relationships, attracting people into our lives 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 see both sides of a situation and find the middle path (or better yet, a win-win); in order to reconcile opposite energies, we need to seek the highest and best outcome for everyone involved — in other words, we need to see everyone as equally deserving — including ourselves.

Libra also represents the quest for…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 3-8 degrees of Libra, Aries, 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 (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 2:26pm, Sept. 28th, and 10:06pm, Sept. 29th — then again between 5:42am and 2:26pm, Sept. 30th (New York-Time).

Full Moon in Pisces — article

On Sept. 14th, at 12:33am EDT, the Sun opposes the Moon in 21 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 in Capricorn — Saturn and Pluto — both of which we will investigate in more detail during our upcoming Forecasting Forum on Sept. 19th. Both are preparing to end their respective Retrograde phases and are therefore exalted.

We are getting ready to move forward on some important long-term goals, but we’ll need to be patient until Saturn goes direct on Sept. 18th; until then, realistically evaluate what’s needed in order to build some healthy, long-lasting foundations for the next phase in our lives.

For a more in-depth interpretation of your own chart, join us live for the Forum on the 19thor get the mp4-video presentation of the live event. Either way: register here now (and also get access to this month’s Full Moon video)

If you are already a Star or Super Star Member, just look out for the Forecasting Forum emails in your inbox (promotional folders or junk mail), on Sept. 19th.

This Full Moon also resonates back to the New Moon in Pisces from March 6th of this year. Think back to that time: what began in March? How might you take that to the next level? What practical action steps could support you in fulfilling on a dream that you’ve had since March?

Now let’s 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 detailed, analytical understanding, contrasted with Pisces‘ call to open our heart and allow for all… even what seems 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, 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…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 19-23 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).

Again, if you are already a Member of my online community, feel free to also watch my video about this Full Moon (click here to watch) — and in the meantime, I will leave you with two beautiful quotes, that really resonate with this Full Moon:

“Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal. All of our spiritual traditions teach the same thing. To achieve peace, be peace. Yet how does one be what one is wishing to experience? By making that choice whenever possible, and by causing others to experience what you wish to experience.” — by Neal D. Walsch

“Write down whatever is weighing heavy on your heart — every deep heart yearning, every problem your mind is trying to solve, every health issue, every relationship struggle, every difficult decision—toss it in the God box and let me help you handle it. Then trust me to clue you in if there’s any action you need to take. Then your action will be coming from a different impulse. It will feel like that electric energy that courses through your body, leaps you out of your chair, and compels you to sprint across town to do that one thing I’ve guided you to do—because you’re so gleefully antsy to do it that you can’t quite help yourself! Trust me on this one, my love.” Your Inner Pilot Light — by Lissa Rankin

New Moon in Virgo — article

On Aug. 30th at 6:37am EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in almost 7 degrees of Virgo. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle. Feel free to watch my New Moon video on the subject (I will post it by the end of by Tuesday, Aug. 27th, at the the latest 🙂

This New Moon has an abundance of planets in Virgo; in Astrology we call this a Stellium — and this one includes Mercury, the Moon, the Sun, Mars and Venus. In the astrological sense, this list is “in order” — our mind leads — and we are more aware of where our daily lives need improvement and our thought processes need investigation in general.

Ask yourself: Am I overanalyzing things? Is my inner dialog bringing me clarity at this time? If not, what might need simplifying, so I can gain more clarity?What might “simplifying my life” look like?

Mercury is also the ruler of Virgo; it is in its own sign at the time of the New Moon, and its energy is thus exalted. Mercury remains in Virgo until Sept. 14th; this gives us some time to recognize where we have ignored important symptoms, feelings, or hunches — and then to eliminate the unnecessary and/or dysfunctional.

Ask yourself: What does my mind chatter say? Is it helpful? Does it help me make decisions in alignment with my lighter vibrations, my love-vibrations? In other words: Is my mind in service to my heart?

Virgo provides an opportunity to learn both about being of service, and about 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 therefore 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.

Looked at another way, 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: sweating the details, worrying, being extra-critical of ourselves and others when something doesn’t get done “right”.

Another great way to step into the higher vibrations of Virgo: As best as you can, recognize that humility, self-improvement, and being of service bring you closer to your inner divinity and your Soul’s path.

Ask yourself: How could I, as a Spirit-being, operate more efficiently in the physical world? Might tweaking my daily routines help? And help me be of service? What benefits might I reap if I brought 5% more discernment to distinguishing between the essential and the redundant?

Since the New Moon in Virgo also conjuncts Mercury, Mars and Venus, we might ask…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 5-9 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly; the same is true for those with their Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

New Moons are also the best time to set some powerful intentions for the 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 time to set intentions would therefore be between 6:37am on Aug. 30th and 4:46am on Aug. 31st — and if that’s not possible there is another great time between 7:08pm on Aug. 31st and 6:37am, on Sept. 1st (EDT is the New York timezone). For more info on setting New Moon Intentions click here

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (again, that’s the US East Coast time zone), I recommend you join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter. I will post reminders on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning to let you know when it is the best time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Aquarius — article

On Aug. 15th, at 8:29am EDT, the Full Moon becomes exact in almost 22.5 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 😉

Two planets are Stationing at the the time of this Full Moon, and are therefore more exalted: Jupiter in Sagittarius (i.e. in its own sign), and Uranus in Taurus (the modern ruler of Aquarius). Both of these planets change direction on Aug. 11th, with Jupiter going direct after a 4-month retrograde phase, and Uranus starting its 5-month retrograde phase.

We will talk in more details about both of these planetary shifts in my next Forecasting Forum on Aug. 15thFeel free to join us live, or register to get the mp4-video presentation of this webinar, to see how these Station phases are impacting you personally.

But first, let’s talk about this Full Moon:
The Sun in Leo conjuncts Venus and Mars, so the Moon in Aquarius opposes this Stellium 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.

Leo symbolizes the embodiment of heart-centered consciousness — the expression of our own individual light, unique gifts, and inner spark of the divine — while on the other hand, Aquarius symbolizes the power of community and collaboration to bring about a common vision.

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 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 or jumping to conclusions; we need to make sure we take time to respond rather than react.

Which is very apropos to the talk I gave last weekend at the “Fresh Voices in Astrology Summit”. This event featured 12 talks from 12 different astrologers — and you can purchase an “All Access Pass” and get recordings of each session, for roughly $10 per topic. Click here for more info — and if you who attended liveplease email me, so I can send you the “React vs. Respond” handout I used in my talk.

Back to the shadow sides of this Full Moon — let’s start with Leo’s shadow side, since we currently have a Stellium in Leo:
Leo’s shadow can show up as…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 20-25 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus or Scorpio? 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 (since the Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer).

New Moon in Leo — article

On July 31st, at 11:12pm EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 8.5 degree of Leo — in other words, the New Moon will be exact. (I recommend you also watch my New Moon video on the subject).

This New Moon is also the end of Eclipse season; we have received our consciousness upgrades, and can now move forward with any intentions we set in early July.

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 gift us the power of creating 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 forth in this lifetime — this is what we were born to explore and express… 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, every word, and every 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; we must also 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 that inner child need to come out and play? If you aren’t sure, there’s no need to guess: Try asking it gently and directly…

This New Moon chart is unique, in that we have six retrograde planets (bear in mind that there are only 9 planets that can even go retrograde)! This means that…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 6-11 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…

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.

So the best time to set intentions this month would between 11:12pm (July 31st) and (Aug. 1st) at 4:48pm, and then again on Aug. 2nd from 9:20am until 11:12pm (all times in EDT — the New York timezone).

Powerful Full Moon-Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn – article

On July 16th, at 5:38pm EDT: the Moon opposes the Sun in 24 degrees of Capricorn — this is a Lunar Eclipse becoming exact (the entrance of the Moon into Capricorn on Sunday evening (July 14th) starts the energetic build up towards this powerful Full Moon). This Full Moon is actually the second of two Eclipses in July; the first one was the Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 2nd.

Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey. For my Members: If you’d like to learn more about this month’s Full Moon, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video.

Lots of planets are involved in this powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse chart — Saturn, Pluto, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, and Neptune — and all play an important role, so buckle up! Of the 11 astrological “planets”, 6 are retrograde at the time of this Eclipse, indicating that we have lots of inner processes going on — and it will be important to honor those processes.

This Full Moon is also the first Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn since the Moon Nodes moved into Cancer/Capricorn in late 2018. This puts an emphasis on balancing those two polarities and integrating them both within ourselves and collectively. With Eclipses this is a longer term process — in this case, a process that will last until Nov. 2020.

Let’s take a look at those polarities: 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 experience of our feelings and our emotional needs (symbolized by Cancer), versus our outer obligations or material, practical goals (Capricorn).

It’s important to realize that our long-term goals need our attention — and that they are the very thing that will 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?

Cancer and Capricorn are both…

Star and SuperStar Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording and enjoy watching it! I sent it out on July 12th, late morning 😉

Please keep in mind that Eclipse Season lasts until July 31st. Allow for changes, remain flexible and adaptable, and find creative solutions in day-to-day interactions with others. Allow also for new downloads and for the release of “old” codes and conditioning. Simply put: an open mind and heart will serve us best (that’s true in general, but especially true until Eclipse season ends 😉

Another thing to remember: if something is beginning or ending in a way that seems organic… allow it to be. As best as you can, observe your feelings and stay grounded in the “here and now”. Connect to your intuition and inner wisdom; they will help carry you through this period. We are receiving a consciousness upgrade — that’s a good thing!

Powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Cancer — article

On July 2nd, at 3:16pm EDTa powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse in 10.5 degrees of Cancer becomes exact. This is the beginning of both a new Moon cycle and an Eclipse cycle — in fact, this is the first of two Eclipses within the next two weeks!

You can think of Eclipses as extra-powerful New and Full Moons. The Sun, Moon, and Earth line up in such a way that cosmic energies are intensified, fostering amplified shifts in consciousness and accelerating our evolution.

I also recommend you watch my Solar Eclipse video on the subject.

The Sun and Moon are both in Cancer — and, as always, they connect to one of the Moon Nodes during an Eclipse; in this case, the North Node — and North Node Eclipses help us explore anew an energy that promotes Soul-evolution.

As I mentioned earlier, Solar Eclipses are extra-powerful New Moons, they end one 19-year cycle and begin another. On July 1st, 2000, we had a Solar Eclipse in almost 10.5 degrees of Cancer that was also connected to the North Node; given this similarity, we are likely to experience a resonance between now and that time — “resonant”, rather than identical — so think back to the summer of 2000 and ask yourself the following:

Were there any major endings back then? Beginnings? What was important? If the call now came to take those priorities to the next level… Where would that next level find me?

The shift connected with this particular Eclipse began last summer already (July 2018), and will unfold over the next 11-16 months. This shift in question is all about the Cancer energy; which is connected to family, home (this could be a physical or emotional “home”) — a shift with past issues around feeling “at home”, “safe”  or “nurtured”– both internally and in the world.

Internally, this is about being more rooted in our physical-emotional bodies, and allowing ourselves to explore and celebrate the mother-archetype both within and without — this would be things archetypically “mother-related”, like giving and receiving nurturing, caring for ourselves in terms of our emotional and physical state, and so on. Over the next 6 months…

Again, I also recommend you watch my Solar Eclipse video on the subject.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 5-16 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Libra or Aries? If so, you are more affected by this powerful New Moon/SuperMoon/Solar 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).

Alright, let’s talk about intention-setting: 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 — as 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.

The best and most potent times to set your Intentions is therefore either between 3:16pm on July 4th and 2:24am on July 5thor between 12:25am and 3:16pm on July 6th (in US Eastern Time — i.e. the New York time zone).

Set powerful intentions — after all, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Cancer energy!

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

This Solar Eclipse reminds us that to be fully alive requires that we create a balance in our lives; so, while writing your intentions, ask yourself: What if I created a more authentic connection to my feeling-body? And if I did, might it just possibly help me better take care of my needs? And if I did that… might I in turn become a more successful and accomplished citizen of the world?

Full Moon in Sagittarius — article

On June 17th at 4:31am EDT, the Full Moon in almost 26 degrees of Sagittarius becomes exact. We started to feel this aspect from the moment the Moon entered Sagittarius, early on Saturday morning, June 15th. If you are currently a Member, and want to learn more about this month’s Full Moon, please click here to watch my video.

As many of you already know, my website had some issues this past weekend; if you want to know how this might have impacted you, or are just curious about what was going on, please read the last paragraph of this article.

For the next two weeks, we seek balance, as we become more aware of something that needs to be brought into alignment or integrated. The balance in question is between our mental processes — symbolized by Gemini — and our quest for a larger truth or meaning (linked to Sagittarius).

It’s important to realize that the Sagittarian urge to “go beyond” is essential for our growth; when it comes to balancing these energies, that same urge can play a crucial role in how we interact with others and share information — in other words, that Gemini energy.

The Moon Nodes in Cancer/Capricorn, Neptune in Pisces, and Jupiter in Sagittarius all play a crucial role in this Full Moon chart. Jupiter is still retrograde at the time of the Full Moon — and this signifies an inner process of some sort, one directly connected to the Full Moon energy.

The Moon Nodes are conjunct Mercury & Mars on the Cancer end, and Pluto & Saturn on the Capricorn end; this asks us to find a healthy balance between inner and outer satisfaction and fulfillment.

As you may recall from my last New Moon video/article, Neptune is still exalted, preparing for its retrograde phase on June 21st.

More about the specifics in a moment, but one thing to remember in general: Full Moons are always times of awareness and culmination. We see things that we have not seen before, and we get a chance to make some changes, if we don’t like what we see. So think back to the New Moon phase that started on June 3rd: What seeds were planted at that time? What has culminated since?

So let’s first talk about the Sagittarius-Gemini polarity: At its highest vibration, Sagittarius shows us…

New Moon in Gemini — article

On June 3rd at 6:02am EDTthe Moon aligns with the Sun in 12.5 degrees of Gemini. This the beginning of a new Moon cycle. Feel free to also watch my video on the subject

One major thing to note in this New Moon chart is that we have 5 planets in the signs over which they rule — this means that these planets feel very much at home and more empowered. The following 5 planets are in their own signs: Mercury (which is also the ruler of this New Moon), Venus in Taurus, Jupiter in Sagittarius, Saturn in Capricorn, and Neptune in Pisces (which also happens to be stationing and is therefore exalted, making its vibrational spin louder).

Something is “in our face” in regards to Neptune’s energies for the whole next month — something is demanding our attention and awareness. I will also talk more about all of this below, but first let’s, look at the Gemini influence of this New Moon.

With the New Moon in Gemini, for the next four weeks, we are asked to connect with others, and share our little hearts out, because Gemini is the archetype of curiosity, communication in all its forms, and mental connections — it represents the development of language and intelligence, as well as our ability to adapt and relate to our immediate environment.

This is a “busy” energy focused on collecting information. We are invited to look at our mental programming and conditioned mind, to see what needs to go, and to see what new thought structures we might want to create in its place.

Gemini is asking us to stay in motion, to think about all that we’ll need to know in order to move forward, and to connect and share ourselves with others. Here are some questions you can ask yourself for this New Moon: What motivates me to learn? When I talk to myself about sharing or processing information, what do I typically say? What do I say to myself about being connected to others? About my intellectual capacities?

The spiritual goal of Gemini is the development of…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 10-15 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)

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, we have two periods that are great times to set intentions: First, any time between 6:02am, on June 3rd and 11:42am, on June 4th. If you aren’t able to do it during that time period, wait 35 minutes and set them between 12:17pm, on June 4th and 6:02am, on June 5th (all times are in Eastern Daylight Time — the timezone New York City occupies). 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 June 3rd throughout the day, and June 4th afternoon/evening, to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Scorpio — article

On May 18th at 5:11pm EDT, the Full Moon in 27.5 degrees of Scorpio becomes exact. The Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio opposes the Sun in steady, peaceful Taurus.

If you are already a Member of my online community, feel free to also watch my video on the subject.

The last month has been filled with intense cosmic attention, directed towards what’s working (and what isn’t) in our lives at this time; this was related to the Station phases that have been activating trauma residues, clearing cellular memories, and giving us an opportunity to restructure our consciousness.

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 May 4th.

For the next two weeks, we seek the balance and integration of two polarities — and are more aware of something that 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 any 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.

So, here’s this Full Moon’s central question: Are we living in alignment with our values, with what makes us happy and satisfied? As a society, as people, as individuals… Do we feel empowered and emotionally fulfilled?

All right, let’s look at the signs involved in this polarity, beginning with Taurus

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 25-29 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, 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 Taurus — article

On May 4th, at 6:45pm EDT, the New Moon becomes exact in 14 degrees of Taurus. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle.

As best as you can, get really quiet, 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 performing it 🙂  Click here to watch my video on the subject

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 — to 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; 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…

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 and most potent time to set intentions would be between 6:45pm on Saturday, May 4th until 11:10am Sunday late morning — then again, at 11:40pm Sunday late evening, until 6:45pm Monday evening (May 6th) — all of the above times are given in US East Coast-time.

Note, that there is a long Moon void of course on Sunday late morning — it runs from 11:10am EDT until 11:40pm EDT. Don’t set your intentions during those 12.5 hours — instead, allow intuition to surface possible intentions while you wait. For more info on setting New Moon Intentions, click here

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US-Eastern Daylight Savings Time), feel free to join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter. I will be posting reminders on Saturday evening, Sunday morning, and Monday — to let you know that it’s the best time to set your intentions 😉

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 12-16 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).

Another Full Moon in Libra – article

On April 19th at 7:12am EDTanother Full Moon becomes exact, and this is the second of two Full Moons in Libra within a 30-day period.

This doesn’t happen too often; the last time we had two consecutive Full Moons in the same sign was June of 2016, in Sagittarius-Gemini — the last time it happened in the sign of Libra-Aries was 57 years ago, in April 1962. If you are already a Member of our online community, feel free to also watch my video on the subject.

Two consecutive Moons in the same sign is particularly interesting because of the degree in which they becomes exact — it is usually an exalted degree — and the current Full Moon becomes exact in 29 degrees of Libra. This is an exalted degree because it is the last degree of the sign and it’s therefore the last chance for any transiting celestial body to express itself before changing signs.

This would indicate a strong urge to complete something, most likely something that started with the first Full Moon in 0º of Libra on March 20th — and therefore connected to relationships, a desire for balance and equality (including harmony in our environment and with ourselves).

With any Full Moon, we see things that we have not been aware of before, and we get a chance to make some changes if we don’t like what we see. Ask yourself: What’s been happening to me since March 20th, when it comes to others? What needs adjusting? What needs to simply change?

That said, we discussed the Aries-Libra polarity at length in the first Libra Full Moon video, posted in March (to hear about that polarity, click here) — so let’s focus now on the aspects connected to this month’s Full Moon chart, starting with two Uranus aspects:

First: Uranus, in an early degree of Taurus, and aligns with the Sun, which is in the last degree of Aries, and therefore also opposes the Moon. Uranus symbolizes the desire for…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 27-29 degrees of Aries, Libra, Capricorn, Cancer or 0-1 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius? 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 Aries — article

On April 5th, at 4:50am EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 15 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.

The New Moon in fast-paced, enthusiastic, and courageous Aries asks us to connect to our personal goals and get very clear on what we want to create over the next 28 days. This is an action-packed New Moon, with the focus on ourselves; we have a tremendous amount of energy and want to sprint — it’s a “do now, think later” energy.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac; as such, it represents new beginnings, initiation, breaking new ground, birthing new forms. An Aries New Moon is thus an especially fertile time for seeding new projects and directions.

We generally don’t know what will happen when we start something brand-new — something we have never done before — and this can stir up insecurities and nervousness, sometimes maybe even plain fear, even panic.

Aries and its ruling planet Mars correspond with the quest to develop courage — not fearlessness, but the conscious choice to act in spite of fear — some call this the “Warrior Energy”.

One of the many ways we can demonstrate courage is to….

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 13-17 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, 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 periods that are great times to set intentions: the first is the roughly seventeen hours between 4:50am and 10:15pm, Friday, April 5th; if you aren’t able to set intentions during that time period, wait until the next day — between 9:06am Saturday, April 6th, and 4:50am Sunday, April 7th, a 19.5 – hour period (as always, all times are EDT).

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US East Coast-time), feel free to join my Facebook Fanpage or follow me on twitter. I will be posting several reminders on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to let you know that it is time to set your intentions 😉

Here’s a few bonus questions: What might emerge if I suspended my opinions, beliefs, judgments and concepts, just for a moment, here and there, now and again? What are some resolutions I could make toward inner healing or wholeness? What would be a good first action step on one of those resolutions? How might accepting my current relationship to my masculine side support me on that journey?

Full Moon in Libra — article

On March 20th at 9:43pm EDT, the Full Moon becomes exact in 0 degrees of Libra. All Full Moons bring an opportunity for awareness and integration of the traits connected to the relevant Full Moon polarities, especially those that have been neglected or suppressed…

This Full Moon has heightened effects on us for two important reasons: first, the zero degree aspect, secondly, it is also a SuperMoon (i.e., the Moon is at its closest distance to the Earth). All of this increases emotionality and fosters larger shifts in consciousness.

This particular Full Moon occurs on the day of the Vernal/Spring Equinox, in the midst of the Mercury Retrograde phase in Pisces; it quincunxes Uranus in 0 degrees of Taurus. Meanwhile, Chiron (in almost 2 degrees of Aries) conjuncts the Sun in Aries and opposes the Moon in Libra.

So, we have several things going on here with this Full Moon and we will address all of them in a moment; feel free to also watch my Members-Only Full Moon video here.

Late in the evening on Wednesday (March 20th), the Moon enters Libra; this starts the energetic build up towards the Full Moon — and only 15 minutes later, the Sun in Aries opposes the Moon in Libra

The Libra-Aries polarity highlights the spiritual dance between various polarities: individual drives or goals and one-on-one relationships, masculine and feminine, independence and collaboration. Whether we are single or partnered, 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…

New Moon in Pisces — article

On March 6th, at 11:04am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in almost 16 degrees of Pisces; this marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle. Feel free to also watch my New Moon video on the subject

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. When at its highest vibration, Pisces unifies all dualities — it is completely aware of the oneness of all. It tells us there is a union within, that exists always, and that we can tap into it.

Ask yourself: Am I (in other words, do I exist)? Could I let that be enough, just for right now? Keep repeating these questions until you feel completely relaxed and at peace.

Now, close your eyes, and ask yourself: Am I my body or am I more than that? Am I the sounds that I can hear inside and outside my head, or am I more than that? Am I the sensations that I can feel and receive, or am I more than that? And, if I am more than those things, where do I begin? Where do I end?

Pisces is accepting and aware of its eternal nature. It lovingly allows all, because it knows that there is no real separation between things, that separation only exists in the mind.

At its lowest vibration however, Pisces feels…

Here is a quote that fits really well with this New Moon: “We are the midwives in a world experiencing the labor pains necessary to the birthing of a whole new world consciousness.” — The Arcturian Group

Again, feel free to also watch my New Moon video on the subject

If you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 14-18 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius, 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 (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 done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

This month, the best time to set intentions would therefore be between 11:04am March 6th and 2:08pm March 7th. Then again, from 3:27pm on March 7th until 11:04am on March 8th (EST – New York-time).

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), feel free to join my Facebook Fanpage or follow me on Twitter. I will be posting reminders on Wednesday afternoon, Thursday in the morning and later in the afternoon/evening, and on Friday morning, to let you know that it is time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Virgo — article

The next Full Moon will be “exact” on Feb. 19th at 10:54am ESTin almost 1 degrees of Virgo

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 (and achieve it) through our interactions with others, so relationships of all kinds are highlighted during Full Moons. Feel free to also watch my video for more

The Moon in Virgo opposes the Sun in Pisces. If you are already familiar with this polarity, feel free to skip ahead to the aspects involved in this Full Moon chart…

Virgo seeks personal wholeness; Pisces reminds us of an even greater 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 Piscesask yourself:

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point, or personal planets in 0-3 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius, or 28-29 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus or Scorpio? 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 — article

On February 4th at 4:04pm EST, a powerful New Moon in almost 16 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact. This is the beginning of a new Moon cycle. I also recommend you watch my video on the subject.

With the New Moon in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius, we have our eye on the future — the highest vibration of Aquarius gives us the opportunity to see a clear vision for our life — and we are ready to make huge improvements.

Aquarius also deals with the power of ideals, technology, and inventions. We are included in the collective focus on changing group consciousness.

At its best, Aquarius stands for equality and diversity, innovation and reform, collaboration and community; we strive for progress. The challenge issued is to unite and transcend differences of gender, race, and cultural or religious backgrounds.

To move even further into that higher Aquarian vibration, ask yourself the following questions: Where am I called to make a difference? What could I, as an individual, do for humanity? And how might “group consciousness” help humanity make progress? Where might I begin?

At a lower Aquarian vibration,…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 13-18 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly.

Now let’s talk “Intentions” 🙂 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 4:05pm on Feb. 4th until 6:59pm on Feb. 5th; and then again from 9:02pm on Feb. 5th until 4:05pm on Feb. 6thNew York Time/US Eastern Time

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), and converting timezones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fanpage and/or following me on Twitter. I typically post multiple reminders letting you know when it is time to set your New Moon intentions 😉

Full SuperMoon/Lunar Eclipse in Leo

Monday very early morning, on Jan. 21st, at 12:16am EST, the Moon opposes the Sun in almost 1 degrees of Leo — this is a very powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse becoming exact. We started to feel this aspect build from the moment the Moon entered Leo Sunday (Jan. 20th), at 10:54pm EST. 

Once every six months, the Sun, Moon, and Earth align precisely enough for a Solar or Lunar Eclipse to occur. Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey. If you’d like to learn more about this month’s Full Moon, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video.

This Full Moon is the second of two Eclipses in January and it’s extra-powerful. There are two main reasons for this: firstly, because it’s a SuperMoon — these occur when the Moon is either Full or New while at its closest distance to the Earth — they are therefore more powerful. This often means an increase in emotional reactivity, plus greater awareness around the issues connected to the particular Full Moon energy in question.

Secondly, as the last Eclipse in the Leo/Aquarius polarity, it completes an Eclipse cycle that started in Feb. 2017 — this put an emphasis on freedom and individuality, while redefining our approach to improving our future — and paradoxically, also on our need to belong. We are also invited to become more aware of our mind’s activities, of group affiliations out there in the world, and of moving towards a courageous, open, and self-expressed heart — one that knows how to joyfully and playfully connect to the “here and now”.

Think back over the last two years, and ask yourself: What has shifted for me, in my attitudes towards the collective (or “humanity”)? How about like-minded people or political/group affiliations? Was there likewise a shift in my desire for more joy? For authentic self-expression? Heartfelt actions? If I think back to the last Solar Eclipse in Leo (August 11th, 2018), what brought the possibility for more joy into my life since then? Have I been able to get more in touch with my inner child?

A final note about Eclipses: they’re consciousness upgrades. For 7 – 10 days before and after one, we are usually in uncharted territory — anything is possible and it’s wise to expect the unexpected. Anything brand-new started during this time will likely not pan out the way we thought it would, often because important information comes to light only after Eclipse season is over.

For that reason, try to defer any major brand-new projects until after Jan. 30th, when this particular Eclipse season ends. That said, if something is beginning or ending in a way that seems organic, allow it to “be”… Just be wary of the urge to push something forward merely to relieve anxiety or impatience.

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 0-6 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, Scorpio, or 26-29 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries or Libra? If so, you may feel the effects of this powerful 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). And if you’d like to learn more about this month’s Full Moon, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video

Moon Nodes in Cancer/Capricorn

On Nov. 6th in the afternoon, the Moon Nodes switched from Leo/Aquarius to Cancer/Capricorn; they will remain in those signs until May 2020! The last time the Moon Nodes were in these particular signs was back in April, 2000 — October, 2001.

The Moon Nodes show us what our Soul’s Journey currently requires on the collective and personal levels — let’s take a closer look at what this means:

The goal of the collective Soul’s journey is to balance and integrate two apparently opposite energies: our inner experience (symbolized by Cancer), and our outer obligations or goals (Capricorn). This will take looking closely at the balance between taking care of ourselves, versus taking care of others — and also at who we are inside, versus what we project to the world, how we portray ourselves.

This is also about developing healthy foundations, emotionally and materially, in private and in public. As best as you can, avoid “should-ing” on yourself: Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying “I’m doing the best I can and that’s all I can ever do”)  😉

To get a more personal interpretation, we also need to take a look at the House placement of that Cancer/Capricorn polarity in our own birth charts, as well as the signs involved… we cover the houses in the webinar (I will include a link at the end of this article).

In Cancer, the North Node invites us to let ourselves be…

Moon Nodes are also connected to the Eclipse cycles; each of these cycles prompts us to evolve and provides an opportunity to progress to the next level of our Soul’s Journey, collectively and individually. The Solar Eclipse in 20.5º of Cancer on July 12th, 2018 started a new Eclipse cycle connected to the Cancer/Capricorn polarity.

Think back to that time and see what you discovered about yourself in relationship to Self-care. How was it a new beginning (or perhaps a preview of what’s to come) in connection with family, home (this could be a physical or emotional “home”) — was there a shift around feeling “at home” or “safe”, both internally and in the world?

We also discussed this in more detail during our last Forecasting Forum, in connection with our own birth charts; if you’d like to know more about how the Moon Nodes’ movements impact you personally, click here to get the video of the Forum.

Jupiter in Sagittarius

On Thursday, Nov. 8th, at 7:38am EST, Jupiter moves from passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio into adventurous, enthusiastic Sagittarius, where it will journey until Dec. 2nd, 2019.

Jupiter moves through a 12-year cycle, so the last time it traveled through its own sign was between November, 2006 and December, 2007 — and the time before that was between December, 1994 and January, 1996.

Think back to those periods… what possibilities or opportunities arose for you? In what ways did you grow or expand? What felt like a birth or a new beginning back then? How could you take all of that to the next level?

Jupiter represents our desire to seek insight through knowledge. Some of this planet’s keywords: morality, gratitude, hope, honor, the law. Jupiter is the planet of possibility, optimism, and growth (including mental and spiritual growth). Jupiter is also 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 we look for wisdom and understanding?

Jupiter symbolizes the principle of expansion; in Scorpio it held a magnifying glass over authentic, emotional commitments or connections and thereby changed our perspective on our subconscious drives and fears, those suppressed or denied parts of ourselves.

Since Scorpio was all about feeling more fully and authentically connected to all parts of ourselves (and thereby feeling empowered), everything in the human unconscious was lit up — we got to see the darker side of things, our survival strategies — and our deepest, darkest desires.

With Jupiter in Sagittarius, that magnifying glass now swings over to…

Where does Jupiter-in-Sagittarius 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 one? What outward opportunities arise as Jupiter interacts with any of your personal planets? Where will you experience a major expansion until Dec. 2019? Where are you ready to go beyond what you currently belief is possible?

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