Full Moon in Scorpio — the article

On April 23rd, at 7:49pm EDTthe Moon opposes the Sun in 4 degrees of Scorpio. The entrance of the Moon into Scorpio earlier that same day begins the energetic build-up towards this powerful Full Moon.

The Moon, in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, opposes the Sun in steady, peaceful Taurus. This offers an opportunity for a deeper, more authentic connection with ourselves and others.

Eclipse Season ended on April 18th. We have now received our consciousness upgrades! Tune in for a moment: Do you feel any differently now than you did before March 15th?

Another thing to consider: on Oct. 28th, 2023, we had a Lunar Eclipse in 5 degrees of Taurus-Scorpio. Since this Full Moon is in a similar degree, check to see what has been coming up since then when it comes to facing your fears and valuing yourself and your authentic relationships with others.

Ask yourself: What inauthentic (or even toxic) relationships must I still release or transform to step into greater abundance and happiness? What fears must likewise be released or transformed?

This Full Moon will most likely stimulate our emotional body and increase our awareness of unconscious patterns and fears. We may feel more easily triggered as buried emotions, motivations, and fears surface. Please be aware of projections and jumping to conclusions.

If you are unsure whether you are projecting something on someone else, check for defensiveness, over-reactivity, or difficulty being objective while exhibiting rigid behaviors.

If you’d like to learn more, and as a Member of my online community, click here to watch my Members Full Moon video.

There are several aspects worth mentioning in this Full Moon chart:

  • Pluto (the ruler of Scorpio) is currently in Aquarius — and highly exalted — squares the Full Moon polarity in ScorpioTaurus
  • Mars (the co-ruler of Scorpio), currently in Pisces, aligns with Neptune and sextiles the Jupiter-Uranus alignment in Taurus
  • Venus (the ruler of Taurus), currently in Aries, aligns with Chiron, and a highly exalted Mercury
  • A highly exalted Mercury in Aries aligns with the North Node and comes to a halt less than two days after the Full Moon becomes exact (on April 25th) — ending its 3-week Retrograde phase.
  • Last but not least, Saturn in Pisces semi-sextiles the Mercury-North Node alignment in Aries and semi-squares Pluto in Aquarius

We will cover all of that in a moment, but first…

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 brings greater awareness to what was unconscious or hidden previously. This particular one invites us to let go of fears or disempowering behaviors.

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 that serve as obstacles on the path to progress? Or perhaps some rigid thought processes?

Let’s take a closer look at the two signs involved in this Full Moon polarity…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 2-6 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, or Aquarius? If so, you are more affected by this month’s powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse; the same is 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, Jupiter and Uranus only meet every 14 years. Their cycles correspond with beliefs in the ability to make progress in a particular area of life — sometimes leading to social upheaval. We may also see upheaval in the natural world, for example with floods, severe storms, tornados, and earthquakes. It’s all about “shaking things up” in general.

We also discuss the Jupiter-Uranus alignment in greater detail in our Forecasting Forum on April 24th at 5pm EDT/2pm PDT. Join us live or register to receive the replay! ==> EARLY BRIRD SPECIAL available until Monday, April 22nd at midnight EDT!

Solar Eclipse in Aries — the article

On April 8th at 2:21pm EDT,  a powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse becomes exact in 19.5º of Aries. This launches a new Moon and Eclipse cycle.

As we remain in Eclipse Season until April 18th, the coming weeks could offer some tailwinds that carry us to significant breakthroughs; we are invited to learn how to be conscious creators, mindful of how our thinking and choices affect our personal and collective experiences.

As best you can, trust that whatever is leaving is making space for something better — the more willing we are to change, the easier it will be.

Stay grounded and flexible — and don’t jump the gun for the next 2-3 weeks — if you feel compelled to do something, do your best to observe the urge — unless it is connected to something that happens organically — if you are ambivalent about taking an action, better hold off until Eclipse Season ends on April 18th.

Solar Eclipses are extra-powerful New Moons that occur approximately every six months. This Eclipse cycle will be in effect until March 2025; this is the first Solar Eclipse of this year and the second in Aries in this Eclipse cycle. You may also want to watch my Solar Eclipse video.

The first Solar Eclipse in Aries (connected to the current Eclipse cycle) occurred on April 20th, 2023. What have you discovered about your physical vitality and self-identity since then? Where are you asked to get out of your comfort zone? Has this been a humbling experience so far?

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

This Eclipse is a Total Solar Eclipse and a SuperMoon!

This will be the third of three Super New Moons in a row, and as some of you already know, SuperMoons occur when the Moon is at its closest distance to the Earth (at the time of a New Moon or Full Moon) and are more powerful. This means greater awareness of the issues connected to the particular New Moon energy.

Total Solar Eclipses happen when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth. The Moon will completely cover the Sun.

This Total Eclipse will be visible in North America, passing over Mexico, the United States, and Canada. It will begin over the South Pacific Ocean. The first location in continental North America that will experience totality is Mexico’s Pacific coast.

The path of the Eclipse continues from Mexico, entering the United States in Texas, and traveling through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Small parts of Tennessee and Michigan will also experience the Total Solar Eclipse.

The Eclipse will enter Canada in Southern Ontario and continue through Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Cape Breton. It will exit continental North America on the Atlantic coast of Newfoundland, Canada.

No matter where you are on the planet, however, the effects of the Eclipse will be transformative globally. Solar Eclipses, in particular, often correspond to significant endings and beginnings.

They occur close to the same degree every 19 years, and the last time we had a New Moon/Solar Eclipse in this particular degree and sign — while the North Node was traveling through Aries — was on April 8th, 2005.

We will likely experience a resonance between now and that time — “resonance”, not repetition — so think back to the Spring of 2005 and ask yourself: Were there any significant 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?

For more guidance on those questions, it is best to take a look at our Natal Charts — the House placement of the Eclipse will indicate which area of life is the readiest to embrace a healthy sense of Self and rise to a new level of consciousness around independence and forging our path, gently and holistically.

Feel free to watch my webinar “Eclipse Season & the Mercury Retrograde” to see how the Eclipses impact your birth chart. You can get this 95-minute webinar here.

Star Members of my online community: check your inbox or junk folder for the email you received on March 22nd.

Eclipses are a time for clarifying and affirming our highest path. We are bound to experience a release and recalibration of some sort because old programs will get deleted and new ones downloaded– and for this Eclipse, this is especially true in connection with our relationship to our human identity and our sense of agency in the world — in other words, how capable we feel to get things done.

This begins with our role in our interactions with others, whether we can be direct about our personal goals and passions and inspire others to follow our example.

Solar Eclipses are an excellent time to go within, to seed anything we would like to integrate and understand better about ourselves over the next six months until the next Solar Eclipse (Oct. 2nd, 2024) — we’ll dig into this in more detail towards the end of this video/article when we talk about setting Solar Eclipse Intentions.

Setting Intentions for Solar Eclipses differs from a regular New Moon! So stay tuned!

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 available to us during those times.

North Node Eclipses help us move towards…

Since 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 Solar Eclipse takes place in 19º24 of Aries:

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 14-25 degrees of Aries, Libra, Cancer, or Capricorn? 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. This is because we are downloading new templates at the time of an Eclipse, and the energies are pretty intense, so we want to wait until it all settles down a little before setting our intentions — that said, it’s best to avoid setting them during a Moon void of course.

Given all this, here are the best and most potent times to set your Intentions for this Solar Eclipse: Between 2:21pm on Wednesday, April 10th, and 6:04am on Thursday, April 11th. Then again, from 8:59am on April 11th until 2:21pm on Friday, April 12th. Note that all times above are given in US Eastern Time — i.e., the New York time zone.pastedGraphic.png

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

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

Super New Moon in Pisces — the article

On March 10th, at 5am EDT/9am London-time, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 20 degrees of Pisces, marking the beginning of a new Moon cycle. Feel free also to watch my New Moon video on the subject

This is the last Lunation before we enter Eclipse Season — which starts on March 15th and lasts until April 18th.

Eclipse Season is usually an unpredictable time, as we are recalibrating on a physical, mental and emotional level which gives us a chance to move to the next level of our evolution – on a personal and collective level.

We will also talk about Eclipse Season in my next Soulivity Today Morning Show: Hot Astrology Friday on March 15th at 8am EDT. If you live in California, listen via KMET Radio at 8am PDT.

Now, back to the New Moon:

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

This New Moon is another SuperMoon (the second of three Super New Moons in a row). These occur when the Moon is closest to the Earth (at the time of a New or Full Moon) and are more powerful. This means greater awareness of the issues connected to the particular New Moon energy.

Since this one occurs in Pisces, this Super New Moon invites us to connect with our inner divinity and ability to receive, trust our intuition, and contribute to life from a heart-centered and empathic place.

This Super New Moon chart has four planets in Pisces, including the Sun, Moon, Saturn, and Neptune. Neptune (the ruler of Pisces) is within 7 degrees of the New Moon, still close enough to make an impact and invite us to open our hearts and dissolve anything that keeps us separate from that heart connection.

The New Moon sextiles Uranus in Taurus, making this an opportune time to tune into the unique value we each have.

Mars in Aquarius is most aspected in this Super New Moon chart. It semi-sextiles the New Moon in Pisces, sextiles Chiron in Aries, and squares Uranus in Taurus.

This will bring an opportunity for more profound healing, individually and collectively speaking. But we are also invited to stretch ourselves and grow beyond what we have known ourselves to be. I will go into all of this in more detail in a moment, but first, let’s talk about the Pisces-energy:

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and thus 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 18-22 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 about the upcoming Eclipse Season and the first full Mercury Retrograde of the year in Aries as they relate to our birth charts. 

You can join us live on Friday, March 22nd at 1pm EDT/10am PDT/5pm London-time. If this date and time doesn’t work for you, register to get the mp4-video presentation.

Early Bird Special available until March 20th at midnight EDT! To register for this month only, click here

NEW! Universal Members get a 10% discount for all of my Forecasting Forums at any time! If you’d like to be registered automatically every month, become a Star Member on my site.

If you are already a Star Member OR already registered for the upcoming Forum, you can email me with a question about the upcoming Eclipses OR the Mercury Retrograde until March 22nd at 11am EDT! Questions are answered in the order that they have been received.

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

So this month, the two best and most potent times to set intentions would be between 5am and 3:45pm on March 10th and from 8:19pm on March 10th until 5am on March 12th — New York time.

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast time), I recommend you join my Facebook page or follow me on Twitter as I post reminders on March 10th, 11th, and 12th to let you know when to set your intentions.

Full Moon in Virgo — the article

The next Full Moon will be “exact” on February 24th, at 7:30am EST in 5.5 degrees of Virgo — and by then, we are halfway through the Lunar cycle that started on Feb. 9th.

Look at the New Moon Intentions you set around Feb. 10th or 11th, and ask yourself: How far have I come with those Intentions? If I’m not where I’d like to be with my goals, what new course might bring them closer?

If you are already a Member of my online community, I invite you to watch my Full Moon video.

We start to feel the build-up towards this Full Moon when the Moon enters Virgo on Feb 23rd at 8:37pm EST.

This particular Full Moon has a planetary line-up in Aquarius (squaring Jupiter in Taurus) and a line-up in Pisces (sextiling Jupiter).

We will also examine some Moon aspects, including a Trine to Jupiter (the traditional ruler of Pisces) and the Opposition to Mercury & Saturn in Pisces. More about all of this in a moment…

We also have Chiron, the Wounded Healer, closely aligned with the North Node (our Soul’s current focus). We’ll look at this long-term aspect in more detail — in connection with our birth charts — in our upcoming Forecasting Forum on Friday, Feb. 23rd, at 5pm EST/2pm PST/10pm London time.

This alignment started to build in July of 2023 and will last until June 17th, 2024; it is at its most intense between January 24th and March 25th, 2024.

Chiron represents a bridge between the physical and the spiritual world. It invites us to focus on a more holistic approach towards our passions and our physical activities — in other words, a healing process of the masculine energies in our world.

We may feel more physically sensitive or humbled by our current human journey — and it is essential that we see ourselves and everyone else out there as “human”, acknowledging that the human experience is not easy, especially when we hold on to the idea of separation and duality.

So, if you want to know how Chiron’s alignment with the North Node in Aries impacts you personally, SIGN UP to join the webinar LIVE or register to receive an mp4 video presentation within 24 hours of the live event. The EARLY BIRD SPECIAL is still available until Feb. 21st at midnight EST! And all of my Universal Members now get a 10% discount for all my monthly Forecasting Forums!

Star Members: You are still automatically registered at no extra cost and will receive an email with a link to join live on Feb. 23rd — and you will also automatically receive a video recording within 24 hours of the live event.

If you are reading this after Feb. 23rd, it’s too late to join live, but you can still get the mp4-video recording of “Healing on a Personal & Collective level Chiron and the North Node in Arieshere.

Now, a Full Moon is always an opposition between the Moon and the Sun; in this case, the Moon also opposes Mercury and Saturn in Pisces. During any opposition, we seek balance, alignment, and integration around two “opposing” perspectives.

We often 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.

The balance we seek between Virgo and Pisces seems to be…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point, or personal planets in 3-8 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).

 

Super New Moon in Aquarius — the article

On Feb. 9th at 5:59pm EST, a powerful New Moon in 20.5 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact; this is the beginning of a new Moon cycle. I also recommend you watch my video on the subject.

Please note: there are some Membership changes that went into effect on Jan. 24th with some new Membership features and some minor price changes. You can watch a brief video about those changes here.

This New Moon is also a SuperMoon — the first of three Super New Moons in a row, when the Moon is nearest to the Earth, increasing its gravitational effects on ocean tides, tectonic plates, and our emotional body. If we allow it, Super Moons can lead to significant shifts in consciousness.

Since this one occurs in Aquarius, this Super New Moon invites us to go out there and connect with “our people”– with a tribe that resonates, a cause that feels aligned with our values and our need for stability and comfort. This connection serves a larger vision for our financial future and the future of our planet, etc.

This New Moon takes place only 6 hours before the Chinese New Year begins, marking the beginning of the Year of the Yang Wood Dragon. This symbolizes vigor, charm, and strength. It also represents royalty (the Emperor), wisdom, and prosperity. Therefore, a Dragon Year brings good fortune, power, passion, and new opportunities.

The Wood year is a time for quick growth and development. There can be sudden breakthroughs and fast changes. The Wood and Dragon energy combination could be overwhelming for some of us.

Anticipate a year that is exciting, creative, and transformational. Risk-taking and forceful pursuit of our goals will yield great results. Life’s pace is fast and dynamic; anything can happen in a Dragon year. Be prepared for an unpredictable and possibly volatile year. The motto for this year could be: “Never a dull moment.”

Ask yourself: Where am I ready to take a risk? Where do I feel the calling to pursue a goal passionately? Where do I need to step outside my comfort zone for a new adventure?

Coming back to Western Astrology, until April 1st, all planets will be in forward motion. This indicates an accelerated time of manifestation — especially connected to new projects or ideas.

It will be extra important to stay focused and grounded and regularly check that we’re moving in the “right” direction.

Ask yourself: What in my life is asking for accelerated progress? What do I wish to manifest with the support of the Universe?

Here is what we will cover in connection with this Super New Moon: 

* Uranus (the planet associated with breakdowns, breakthroughs, and innovation), modern ruler of Aquarius, is currently in Taurus and still exalted in this Super New Moon chart. It will also make a powerful Square to the New Moon and a Trine to Venus in Capricorn.

* Saturn (the planet associated with building sustainable structures), the traditional ruler of Aquarius, is currently in Pisces and is still in a Sextile to Jupiter in Taurus (due to Jupiter’s Station and Retrograde phases, this has been going on since Dec. 7th of last year)

Venus is part of a planetary Line-up (Stellium) that includes Mars in CapricornPluto in Aquarius, and Mercury in Aquarius.

This will also be Pluto’s first New Moon since changing signs from Capricorn to Aquarius on Jan. 20th — and the New Moon will also be in the same sign as Pluto.

With all this, we are being asked to be extra-mindful about connecting to our physical reality (our body, our finances, and the planet) in an innovative and unique manner.

We are also being asked to bring integrity and maturity to our connections with others, to our collaboration, and to be extra conscious about how we interact with others: choosing Love over fear, whenever we can. More about all of this and more below…

Let’s first talk a little bit about Aquarius and what this energy represents before jumping into the aspects of this Super New Moon chart:

The highest vibration of Aquarius is to experience unity in diversity — to know ourselves as both an individual and an integral member of the human race. It’s a place where we…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 18-23 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, or Scorpio? 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).

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 not during a Moon void of Course phase.

There will be a Moon VoC starting with the New Moon on Feb. 9th, which means we are best off waiting until the next day to set our intentions.

That means that this month, the best time and most potent time to set intentions would be any time between 8:42am on Feb. 10th and 5:59pm on Feb. 11th – (New York Time/US Eastern Time)

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast) and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook page, following me on Twitter or Instagram. I will post reminders to let you know when to set your New Moon intentions.

**We will also have another Soulivity Today Morning Show: “Hot Astrology Topics” coming up, on Feb. 16th at 8am EST. Watch our show live via Youtube (or later as a recording), or if you live in California, you can listen in via KMET Radio (98.1FM) at 8am PST.

==> I will be interviewed the lovely Brian Westley Johnson, and I will give a preview about what to expect for February with Venus making a powerful connection to Pluto in Aquarius on the 17th and Chiron to the North Node in Aries on the 19th! 

Full Moon in Leo — the article

On January 25th at 12:54pm ESTthe Moon opposes the Sun in 5 degrees of Leo — and this is when this month’s Full Moon becomes exact. We started to feel this Full Moon build from the moment the Moon entered Leo on Wednesday night, Jan. 24th. Relationships of all kinds are highlighted.

I have a very important announcement for my current Members:

Since I started my Membership site six years ago, expenses for my Membership site have gone up quite a bit, but I have kept Membership fees at their original rates. Unfortunately, with the latest round of cost increases, I had to make the tough decision to make some changes.

Many of you have also told me that they would do more Readings with me if my prices were a little lower.

The solution that I came up with, is to raise site membership fees by a modest amount, and at the same time offer much deeper Member discounts on Readings, Coaching Packages, and Astrology Courses.

Universal Members will get up to 15% discounts on Services, and Star Members will get up to 25% discounts!

This will help me keep the membership system going and allow all of you to take advantage of my services more often.

The fees will go to $7/month for my Universal Members and to $29/month for my Star Members.
The yearly fee will go to $63 for Universal (that’s 3 FREE Months) and $289 for Star Members.

This will go into effect on Jan. 24th! Please email me at info@astrologercoach.com if you have any questions!

Back to the Full Moon:

All Full Moons offer opportunities to see things in a new light and guide us away from polarization and division toward balance and integration. Ask yourself: How far have I come since setting Intentions back on Jan. 11th or 12th, after the New Moon became exact? What am I aware of at this time?

The balance and integration we seek with this month’s Full Moon are connected to 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.

This Full Moon chart has a big focus on the outer and social planets:

  • The Sun aligns with Pluto in Aquarius
  • The Moon in Leo opposes not only the Sun but also Pluto in Aquarius, and it also trines Chiron in Aries
  • Jupiter in Taurus is the focus point of a T-square to the Full Moon polarity (as well as Pluto)
  • Uranus (the modern ruler of Aquarius) currently exalted in Taurus, as it is preparing to end its 5-month Retrograde phase on Jan. 27th; and it trines a Mercury-Mars alignment in Capricorn
  • The Mercury-Mars alignment also squares Chiron, the Wounded Healer
  • Saturn (the traditional ruler of Aquarius) currently in Pisces quincunxes the Moon in Leo, and sextiles Jupiter in Taurus and Venus in Capricorn

I will go into all of this in more detail in a moment, but first, let’s talk about the Aquarius-Leo polarity:

Aquarius represents a unique vision and approach to life. The classic Aquarian vision is one of interconnected equality and belonging — paradoxically, we are reminded at the same time that the power of unity lies in diversity. It is a concentrative sign.

On the other hand, Leo is all about our self-expression, creativity, and ability to connect to a courageous, innocent heart and inner joy. Leo, at its best, signifies the quest to live from our center, our authentic core, our truth — with joy in our hearts.

As with all Full Moons, we are also invited to…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 3-7 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 (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

 

New Moon in Capricorn — the article

On January 11th at 6:57am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in almost 21 degrees of Capricorn, launching a new Moon cycle.

New Moons are good times to reflect on our lives and set new intentions. This is an excellent time to go within and plant a seed for anything we would like to accomplish over the next 28 days and beyond. Feel free to also watch my New Moon video on the subject, here.

There are two quick things I would like to mention before we get started:

1) My latest Podcast/Radio Show for “Soulivity Today” focused on “hot dates” in 2024; if you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend that you watch it on YouTube at Soulivity Today or click here to watch it on my website

2) Also! On Jan. 24th at 1pm EST, we have our first Forecasting Forum of the year!

We will talk about Uranus, the planet of breakthroughs, innovation & change, as well as Pluto (the planet of deep transformation & power) moving back into Aquarius (the sign most associated with communities, technology & future visions) — for the second time since last March, and this time it will remain in Aquarius until September 1st.

The third pass will be from Nov. 19th, 2024, until Jan. 2044. This is a 246-year cycle, which means the last time Pluto was in Aquarius was from 1778 – 1798. This was when the United States achieved its independence from Great Britain — through its desire to create a place “of the people for the people”, a place where freedom and equality were honored and aspired to.

So, join us for this powerful 90-minute webinar ==> Early Bird Special is only $32 until Jan. 22nd! After that time, it will be $37.00

Everyone who is registered also gets access to the mp4 video recording of the live event. As always, Star Members are automatically registered.

If you want to stay on the pulse of all the planetary shifts for this coming year and see how an understanding of these energies can serve you personally, become a Star Member of my online community and join us every month.

Now, let’s talk about the first New Moon in 2024:

If you did make any New Year’s resolutions, this New Moon cycle will be a great time to implement and make good on those resolutions or intentions.

If you didn’t set any New Year’s resolutions, I can’t blame you, since Mercury was Retrograde at midnight on Dec. 31st/Jan. 1st., and was also squaring Neptune in Pisces — so it may have felt too overwhelming to set any concrete intentions for 2024, or it wasn’t even on your radar…

But do not worry; January 11th is your next chance to set some great goals or intentions, and this time, you will feel much more grounded, realistic, and excited about doing so.

Since this New Moon occurs in Capricorn, it directs us to investigate our relationship with authority, not just “authority” in the external sense, but also our “own authority”.

The highest vibration of Capricorn is self-mastery: the development of responsibility, resourcefulness, reliability, setting realistic goals, and healthy boundaries. So, the next 28 days are perfect for working on these areas.

Since Capricorn represents the quest for…

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 18-23 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra? 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 the month’s Moon cycle — the perfect time is after the New Moon becomes exact (but not during a Moon void of course).

So this month, there are two best and most potent times to set intentions — the first would be any time between 6:57am and 9:33pm on Jan. 11th — and the second would be between 10:01pm on Jan. 11th and 4:59am on Jan. 13th. (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 Page and following me on Twitter, as I post reminders when it’s time to set your intentions.

Full Moon in Cancer — December 2023

On December 26th at 7:33pm EST, the Moon opposes the Sun in almost 5 degrees of CancerThe entrance of the Moon into Cancer earlier that same day begins the energetic build-up towards this Full Moon.

This is the second Full Moon in 2023 in the Cancer-Capricorn polarity. The first one was on Jan. 6th, 2023, at the beginning of the year. You could say that started the year in the same way we are invited to end it….

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.

Before we dive in, I just want to share: it’s not too late to watch my Soulivity Today Morning Show: “Hot Astrology Topics” A Preview of 2024! ==> If you weren’t able to join us live on Dec. 15th, not to worry, here is the replay!

Back to the Full Moon…

Lots of planets are involved in this Full Moon chart:

  • Moon in Cancer: sextiles an exalted Jupiter in Taurus and trines Saturn in Pisces
  • Sun in Capricorn: trines an exalted Jupiter and sextiles Saturn
  • Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) in Pisces sextiles an exalted Jupiter in Taurus
  • Mercury and Mars are closely aligned in Sagittarius, both in a Square to Neptune in Pisces
  • Neptune trines Venus in Scorpio, and they both sextile Pluto in Capricorn
  • A highly exalted Chiron in Aries is in a wide Square to the Full Moon polarity and closes in on the North Node in Aries

Jupiter is exalted until Jan. 6th (stationing) as it prepares to end its 4-month Retrograde phase at 5.5 degrees of Taurus on Dec. 30th. However, at the time of the Full Moon, Jupiter will support the integration of the Full Moon polarity because it is sextiling the Moon in Cancer and trining the Sun in Capricorn.

The same is true for Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn. Saturn in Pisces will also support the integration of the Full Moon polarity, as it is trining the Moon and sextiling the Sun.

Chiron is extremely exalted and will halt at 15.5 degrees of Aries only 2.5 hours after the Full Moon becomes exact.

All of the above-mentioned play an important role, so buckle up! More about the specifics regarding all of these planets in a moment. But first, let’s talk about this month’s Full Moon:

This Lunation shows us how well we are doing with self-care and any issues connected to family or home — and also where we are in connection to greater emotional responsibility and self-alignment.

Ask yourself: What’s my relationship to self-care? Where do I feel most “at home”? What’s my understanding of my emotional needs? How might an emotional connection to myself and my loved ones be of benefit to me? How might it shift my priorities?

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 personal feelings and emotional needs (symbolized by Cancer), versus our outer obligations or material, practical goals (Capricorn). It’s important to realize that…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 3-7 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).

New Moon in Sagittarius — the article

On Dec. 12th, at 6:32pm EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 20.5 degrees of Sagittarius, beginning a new Moon cycle.

New Moons are a great time to catch our breath; to hit the pause button on our life, and to set some intentions for the new Lunar cycle.

With the New Moon in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, we are asked to go beyond our day-to-day knowledge and look for a larger perspective. Also, feel free to watch my New Moon video on the subject

Before we dive in, I just wanted to mention briefly 2 things that may be of interest to you: 

Firstly, I am excited to say that we have another Soulivity Today Morning Show: “Hot Astrology Topics” coming up on Dec. 15th. I will be interviewed by the lovely Brian Westley Johnson, and I will give a preview about what to expect for 2024!

==> You can watch this live via YouTube at 8am EST (or later as a recording) — or if you live in California, you can listen in via KMET Radio (98.1FM/1490AM) at 8am PST

Secondly, I have a NEW service offering! I added a 30-min. Pet Reading to my list of Readings. This was inspired by one of my clients who asked me for a Reading for her dog, and it was so helpful to her that I thought I would offer it officially as a Reading to all my clients! ==> Feel free to take a look here

Back to the New Moon:

Lots to consider with this New Moon chart:

  • This New Moon aligns with Mars in Sagittarius
  • There are three exalted planets in this New Moon chart: Neptune in Pisces, Chiron in Aries & Mercury in Capricorn
  • Mercury starts its 3-week Retrograde phase only 7.5 hours after the New Moon becomes exact
  • The New Moon makes several aspects: it trines an exalted Chiron & the North Node in Aries, it squares an exalted Neptune, and it quincunxes Uranus in Taurus
  • Jupiter (the ruler of Sagittarius), currently in Taurus, opposes Venus in Scorpio and trines a highly exalted Mercury in Capricorn

More about all that in a moment, but first, let’s look at the Sun/Moon/Mars alignment in Sagittarius:

This combo urges us to examine our beliefs and their impact on our lives. It invites us to look at our direct experience, to see what’s true now, and move forward with excitement.

Ask yourself: Could I be 5% more mindful of the filters through which I interpret life? Could I be present in the here and now and witness things as they are? What is my direct experience when I ignore my social/cultural conditioning?

A direct and courageous approach works best here. We feel more adventurous and probably more impatient. We also like to debate others, persuading them to share our beliefs or perspectives.

Ask yourself: Where do I insist on “being right”? How do I usually feel afterward? Does my truth need to be the only truth there is?

Remember that we are the editors of our own experience. We interpret our reality through many filters, determined by our childhood conditioning, education, religion, culture, gender, and nationality.

Ask yourself: What beliefs, perspectives, or attitudes are worth fighting for? Which ones aren’t? Where could I bring a dose of humor or curiosity to the table?

We prefer to feel free-flowing and excited about new things — especially when we can learn or experience something new. Ask yourself: Where am I invited to take a leap of faith?

There are three exalted planets in this New Moon chart: Neptune in Pisces, Chiron in Aries & Mercury in Capricorn.

We covered all three of those stations in our most recent Forecasting Forum in relation to our birth charts. Please feel free to watch this webinar if it interests you.

**Star Members already have access to this; for everyone else, click here. 

Mercury comes to a halt and starts its 3-week Retrograde phase only 7.5 hours after the New Moon becomes exact. This makes Mercury highly exalted at the time of this New Moon.

Mercury is all about communication, collecting & processing information, our inner dialog, and our decision-making process.

Ask yourself: What is in my face concerning my long-term plans or business dealings? My economic status? Aspirations? What feels out of integrity in my life?

During the Retrograde phase, until January 1st 2024, we are invited to…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 18-23 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 time to set intentions would be any time between  6:32pm on Dec. 12th and 1:48am on Dec. 13th; then again from 10:38am (Dec. 13th) until 6:32pm on Dec 14th — New York Time/US Eastern Time

Note that there is a Moon void of course on Dec. 13th — it runs from 1:48am EST until 10:31am EST. Don’t set your intentions during those 8.5 hours — instead, allow intuition to surface possible intentions while you wait.

If you live outside the EST timezone (i.e. US East Coast time), I recommend you join my Facebook Page or follow me on Twitter. I will post reminders on Dec. 12th, 13th, and 14th to let you know when it is the most potent time to set your intentions.

For more info on how to set your New Moon Intentions, click here.

 

Full Moon in Gemini — the article

On November 27th, at 4:16am EST, the Full Moon becomes exact in almost 5 degrees of Gemini; the entrance of the Moon into Gemini on Sunday evening (Nov. 26th) starts the energetic build-up towards this Full Moon. 

Before we get started, I just wanted to share that if you weren’t able to join me live for my first guest appearance on the Soulivity Today Morning Show: “Hot Topics Friday” ==> feel free to watch the replay here 

**The next show will be on Dec. 15th at 8am EST** Mark your calendar!

Now, back to the Full Moon:

The Moon in chatty, versatile Gemini, opposes the Sun in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius. If you are already a Member of my online community, you may also want to watch my Full Moon video for more details.

Let’s start by looking at the highlights of this Full Moon:

  • The Moon makes an opposition to the Sun & Mars alignment in Sagittarius, which asks us to take action on something that we have been meaning to take care of since the New Moon in Gemini, around June 18th, 2023.
  • Saturn in Pisces becomes the Focus Point of a T-Square, squaring the Moon in Gemini and the Sun-Mars alignment in Sagittarius, asking us to be present in the here and now and bring this practice to our daily routines.
  • The Sun in Sagittarius quincunxes Jupiter (the ruler of Sagittarius) on Nov. 29th, and Mars will follow suit on Dec. 3rd, which invites us to make some inner adjustments. Still, ultimately, it’s about seeing the bigger picture and being adaptable.
  • Neptune in Pisces (our primary connection to universal love and our intuitive knowing) is still exalted until Dec. 25th, making this planet’s energy a vital part of this Full Moon chart; it also squares  Mercury in Sagittarius. 
  • Mercury, the planet of communication, also known as the messenger (also the ruler of Gemini), not only squares Neptune but also trines the North Node in Aries & sextiles the South Node-Venus alignment in Libra. Mercury’s aspects to the Moon Nodes & Venus ask us to widen our horizons and take an optimistic approach when interacting with others and going after our goals & passions.

I will go into all these aspects in more detail in a moment — but first…

Full Moons illuminate the higher/lighter vibration and the denser Shadow side of each sign. As our collective consciousness continues to awaken, what’s been in the shadows moves more to the forefront — where we can see it more clearly and deal with it on a conscious level.

This ultimately creates a more conscious society that can make more empowering choices for the future. However, it is essential to remember that this process takes time to create a visible collective shift.

Let’s take a look at the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity: Gemini asks us to…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 2-7 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)

 

New Moon in Scorpio — the article

On Nov. 13th at 4:27am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in almost 21 degrees of Scorpio, beginning a new Moon cycle.

Before we get started, I have a quick announcements:

I am excited to say that I will be a regular guest on the Soulivity Today Morning Show: “Hot Topics Friday” starting on Nov. 17th.

==> Join me once a month as I discuss hot astrology topics with the lovely Brian Westley Johnson.

Now, back to the New Moon:

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

Eclipse season is over; Saturn has Stationed Direct on Nov. 4th, so we are feeling a bit more grounded and ready to move things forward in a bigger way.

A couple of things to note in this New Moon chart:

Mars, the traditional ruler of Scorpio, aligns with the New Moon, and all three of those planetary bodies make a Trine to Neptune in Pisces, as well as an exact Opposition to Uranus in Taurus — the planet associated with breakdowns, breakthroughs, sudden change, freedom, and innovation.

Pluto, the modern ruler of Scorpio, is still in serious, cautious, and goal-oriented Capricorn until January 20th, 2024, and still squares the Moon Nodes in Aries-Libra until December 8th/9th. Pluto also still trines Uranus in Taurus and still sextiles Neptune in Pisces.

Mercury, the messenger of the heavens, sextiles Venus in Libra and squares an exalted Saturn in Pisces at the time of the New Moon. More about all that in a moment, but first, let’s talk about the Scorpio energies…

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. Scorpio is also the sign most associated with…

Powerful Full Moon-Lunar Eclipse in Taurus — the article

On October 28th at 4:24 pm EDT, the Moon opposes the Sun (in 5º of Taurus/Scorpio). The entrance of the Moon into Taurus on Oct. 28th at 7:44am EDT begins the energetic build-up towards this powerful Full Moon.

This powerful Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse. Every six months, the Sun, Moon, & Earth align precisely enough for Solar and Lunar Eclipses to occur.

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Full Moon slowly dims as it passes through the Earth’s shadow, stimulating our emotional body and increasing our awareness of unconscious patterns and fears. If you’d like to learn more, and as a Member of my online community, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video.

This powerful Full Moon is a shallow Partial Lunar Eclipse viewable across Europe, Africa, most of Asia, and western Australia. The partial Eclipse lasts 78 minutes (=1hr 18min), so we will feel the influence of this Lunar Eclipse for approximately 39 days.

This Lunar Eclipse is the last of the Eclipses in the Taurus-Scorpio polarity — an Eclipse cycle that began in November 2021!

This allows us to complete an evolutionary process emphasizing creating a healthy sense of self-esteem and having a healthy relationship with the physical world —  learning how to value ourselves, each other, and the Earth.

So, the question is: How well have you been doing with this exploration for yourself since November of 2021? What more is there to be learned? What processes are asking to be completed?

What fears are still asking to be faced? What old traumas still need to be healed? What’s the best way to own your power? What is still holding you back?

As you might know from my last Solar Eclipse video, Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey (collectively and individually).

With this particular Eclipse, the Moon Nodes are no longer in the same signs as the Full Moon polarity. That said, they are within 12 degrees of the Full Moon — close enough for this to still be a Lunar Eclipse — partial perhaps, but still powerful.

The Lunar Eclipse highlights relationships of all kinds — but with this particular Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse, there is a heightened emphasis on self-value and intimate relationships. Full Moons also illuminate the truth and consequences of our choices.

We become aware of what has been suppressed or ignored — or, this being a North Node Eclipse, what we need to explore, embrace, and integrate about the Taurus energy.

It’s been 19 years since we experienced a Lunar Eclipse in this degree of Taurus. Think back to Oct. 27th, 2004: What did I need to integrate back then?

What became clearer at that time around exploring my talents? What about my self-worth — was I able to see my value? What about my relationship with money? To my physical reality? My Body? My ability to receive pleasure? To experience inner peace? Where do I need to take this to the next level?

We will also address this upcoming Lunar Eclipse in our next Forecasting Forum on Oct. 27th at 5pm EDT/2pm PT! Please join us if you want to know how this powerful Lunation will impact you personally. We will also address Saturn’s Station Direct phase in Pisces.

There is currently an Early Bird Special that is available until October 25th! So I invite you to take advantage of that — unless you are already a Star Member — you are automatically registered and will receive an invite email to join us live (it goes out the day before the live event). I release the mp4 video recording within 24 hours of the live event.

Many planets are involved in this powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse chart: 

  • The Moon in Taurus closely conjuncts Jupiter
  • The Moon not only opposes the Sun but also Mercury & Mars in Scorpio
  • The Moon sextiles an exalted Saturn in Pisces 
  • Venus, the ruler of Taurus, is currently in Virgo and trines Uranus & Jupiter in Taurus
  • Venus in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces
  • The modern ruler of Scorpio (Pluto) is still in Capricorn and exalted, sextiling Neptune
  • Pluto also still squares the Moon Nodes in Aries-Libra
  • Pluto also trines Uranus in Taurus
  • Mars (the traditional ruler of Scorpio) closely aligns with Mercury in Scorpio
  • Mars & Mercury in Scorpio almost exactly oppose Jupiter in Taurus

I’ll give you more details in a moment. For the next 39 days, we seek…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-10 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, or Aquarius? If so, you are more affected by this month’s powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse. The same is true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

 

Solar Eclipse in Libra — the article 2023

On Oct. 14th at 1:55pm EDT, a Solar Eclipse becomes exact at 21 degrees of Libra  —  you may also want to watch my Solar Eclipse video.

48 hours before and after an Eclipse, we are experiencing heavy energetic downloads, so it’s best to wait to set Solar Eclipse Intentions until after these intense downloads are over.

Solar Eclipses are extra-powerful New Moons that take place approximately every six months — this is the second Solar Eclipse in 2023 (in this particular Eclipse cycle that will be in effect until March 2025). The first Solar Eclipse of 2023 took place in Aries on April 20th.

Think back to late April and see what seeds got planted in your life in connection with the last Solar Eclipse. Did you set Solar Eclipse Intentions on April 22nd or 23rd? Did something end or begin at that time? What have you discovered about your physical vitality and self-identity?

This Eclipse is an Annular Solar Eclipse; these occur when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth while the Moon is at or near its farthest point from Earth. Because of the distance to the Earth, it appears smaller than the Sun and does not entirely cover the Sun. As a result, the Moon appears as a dark disk on top of a larger, bright disk, creating what looks like a ring of light around the Moon.

This Eclipse will be most visible in parts of the United States (mainly Oregon, Northern California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and Texas), Mexico, and many countries in South and Central America.

Everyone in the U.S. will see a partial Solar Eclipse, with those farther West seeing a much more significant chunk taken out of the Sun.

No matter where you are on the planet, however, the effects of the Eclipse will be transformative globally.

We also addressed Eclipse Season and the Solar Eclipse in Libra in more detail in our webinar: “Eclipse Season & Pluto Station”.  If you missed this fantastic online event ==> click here to get this fabulous 1hour 45 min. webinar

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 available to us during such times.

This is the first South Node Solar Eclipse in Libra since the Moon Nodes moved into the Aries-Libra polarity on July 17th, 2023.

Solar Eclipses, in particular, often correspond to significant endings and beginnings. They occur close to the same degree every 19 years, and the last time we had a New Moon/Solar Eclipse in this particular degree and sign while the South Node was traveling through Libra was on October 14th, 2004.

We will likely experience a resonance between now and that time — “resonance”, not repetition — so think back to the Fall of 2004 and ask yourself: Were there any significant 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?

A couple of things to note for this Solar Eclipse chart: the New Moon not only aligns with the South Node but also with Mercury in Libra; it also makes a Quincunx to Uranus in Taurus and an opposition to Chiron & the North Node in Aries.

Pluto in Capricorn has a potent role in this Eclipse chart, as it is exalted (due to its Station phase), and it squares the Moon Nodes and, therefore also the New Moon/Solar Eclipse.

Squares are 90º aspects that mark a turning point that we must take to make progress; they ask us to stretch and grow beyond who we used to be.

These are the major themes of this Solar Eclipse chart, and we will address them in more detail. First, let’s talk a bit more about

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 16-26º of Libra, Aries, Cancer, or Capricorn? If so, you may feel the effects of this powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse 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 5.5-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.

The best and most potent times to set your Intentions for this Solar Eclipse are between 1:55pm (on Oct. 16th) and 11:44am (on Oct. 17th) and then again from 3:36pm (Oct. 17th) until 1:55pm (on Oct. 18th) — (in US Eastern Daylight Savings Time — i.e. the New York time zone).

Set powerful intentions — again, they cover the next 5.5 months — and if possible, align them with the Libra energy!

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

New Moon in Virgo — the article

On Sept. 14th at 9:40pm EDTthe Moon aligns with the Sun in 22 degrees of Virgo, marking the beginning of a new Moon cycle. We start to feel the effects of this New Moon the moment the Moon entered Virgo on Sept. 13th. Feel free to watch my New Moon video on the subject.

This New Moon has an abundance of planets in Earth signs: the Moon, the Sun, and Mercury in Virgo, Pluto in Capricorn, Jupiter, and Uranus in Taurus (all planets in Earth Signs).

The element of Earth deals with the physical reality of things and usually requires a practical approach. This means that our focus will be on those things for the next four weeks — on both the individual and collective levels.

We still have seven planets out of 9 in Retrograde motion when the New Moon becomes exact. With this many planets moving backward, we might feel things are not moving forward. If we experience this, we might want to look at what is holding us back — old fears and limiting beliefs stemming from unresolved trauma, childhood programming, and social conditioning.

We can see and take our next steps as we heal old wounds, break old patterns, and realize new perspectives.

I will talk more about this in connection with the planetary aspects of this New Moon chart, but first, let’s look at the Virgo energy of this 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 constructively and mindfully.

This cycle is 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, and 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

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 20-24 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 powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and not during a Moon void of course phase.

So this month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be between 9:40pm Thursday evening (Sept. 14th) and 9:49am Friday late morning (Sept. 15th); and then again from 1:44pm on Sept. 15th until 9:40pm on Saturday, Sept. 16th (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 “X” (the app formerly known as Twitter). I will be posting reminders on Sept. 14th in the evening, and on Sept. 15th & 16th throughout the day to let you know when it is time to set your intentions.

Again, Pluto is still in its Retrograde motion until Oct. 10th. It will start to slow down and be more exalted from Sept. 18th on.

Feel free to join us for our next webinar: “Pluto’s Station in Capricorn & Eclipse season” for more insight on what’s coming up over the next month and how it relates to your own birth chart!

Super Full Moon in Pisces – the article

On August 30th, at 9:36pm EDTthe Sun opposes the Moon in 7.5 degrees of Pisces. The Moon in creative, free-flowing Pisces makes an opposition to the Sun in detail-oriented, practical Virgo — the entrance of the Moon into Pisces on Wednesday morning (Aug. 30th) starts the energetic build-up towards this Full Moon. 

If you are currently a Member of my online community, you may also want to watch my video on the subject, here.

This is the third of four Super Full Moons in a row where the Moon is closer to the Earth, increasing its tidal and electromagnetic effects. It is also the second Full Moon in the same calendar month (in this case, August) and thus an example of the famous “Blue Moon“!

On Aug. 30th, we can ask ourselves: How far have we come since the Aug. 16th New Moon? What can we see now that was not apparent then?

This Full Moon has seven planets in Retrograde motion: Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. This indicates a strong need for inner processing and aligning ourselves with those planetary energies from within.

It’s a necessary phase of re-evaluation, restructuring, and letting go. It also reminds us that internal shifts are required before changing our life or the world.

Often, things appear to slow down during a retrograde passage because internal shifts have to happen before we can progress; once a planet turns direct, though, we feel ready to move forward in that area of life.

Of those seven retrograde planets, Mercury & Venus will start to go direct in September (September 3rd & 15th); we will then get the opportunity to bring our inner discoveries to the outside world.

With this Full Moon, we are also dealing with an exalted Venus, Jupiter & Uranus — they are exalted because they are reducing their speed in preparation to change directions.

Venus in Leo comes to a halt on Sept. 3rd, ending her Retrograde phase that started on July 22nd.

To discover your own authentic Venus, feel free to get my webinar: “Venus Retrograde in Leo: Embracing & Expressing Your Venus Energy for Love & Abundance”. Available for the Special Price of only $15 until Sept. 1st! (Valued at $98.00).

Jupiter in Taurus comes to a halt on Sept. 4th, starting its yearly 4-month Retrograde phase that will last until Dec. 30th.

Here, we are getting ready to re-evaluate old beliefs and perspectives or attitudes, as well as our cultural conditioning (Jupiter Retrograde in Taurus); between Sept. 4th and Dec. 30th, this will focus on our finances, our ability to create abundance and see ourselves as worthy.

For a more in-depth interpretation of how this applies to your own birth chart, join us live for the Forum on Friday, Sept. 1stor get the mp4-video presentation of the live event. Either way, register here now (unless you are already a Star Member — in that case, you are automatically registered). Early Bird Pricing is still available until Aug. 30th at midnight EDT!

Uranus in Taurus comes to a halt only two days before the Full Moon becomes exact, on Aug. 28th!, starting its yearly 5-month Retrograde phase that will last until January 27th, 2024.

Since Uranus represents things like breaking away from traditional structures, moving towards a new future that serves others and ourselves, inner and outer freedoms, etc. — these themes will be in our awareness, for better or worse.

Ask yourself: If I’m being completely honest, how free do I feel with my body, finances, and talents? Am I honoring my individuality? My differences? Am I connecting to a larger vision for the future? Is anything holding me back?

Now let’s address this Full Moon’s polarities

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 5-10 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 August 16th, at 5:38am EDTthe Moon aligns with the Sun in 23 degrees of Leo — in other words, the New Moon will be exact (I recommend you also watch my New Moon video on the subject).

There are several planets of importance in this New Moon chart:
Uranus in Taurus & Mercury in Virgo not only trine each other, but are also both exalted/stationing — and Jupiter in Taurus starts to slow down (station) only a day after the New Moon becomes exact — we will feel its archetypical energy more strongly until Sept. 22nd. 

All three of these planets are preparing for their various Retrograde phases, bringing awareness to issues we must face or deal with during their various Retrograde phases.

The New Moon in Leo aligns with Venus (currently in her retrograde phase), trines Chiron in Aries, and squares a wide Jupiter/Uranus alignment in Taurus.

The exalted Mercury in Virgo also makes a Quincunx to Chiron in Aries and aligns with Mars (the ruler of Aries). More about all of that in a moment; first, let’s talk about the New Moon energies:

A retrograde Venus aligns with the New Moon in Leo; this highlights the power of our individual creativity; and makes our inner creative child and any physical children essential for the next 28 days.

Since Venus is in her Retrograde phase until Sept. 3rd, we are invited to look at what is (and what isn’t) in alignment with the expression of our light. We are invited to reclaim our hearts and reconnect to our inner joy and expressive, playful core.

Ask yourself: What needs to be re-evaluated in my life? What are my heart connections telling me?

Do I feel connected to joy? To a healthy sense of self-expression? Playful creativity? Where can I find the courage to step outside of my safety zone? What role does gratitude play in all of this?

We also covered the Venus Retrograde phase in our most recent Forecasting Forum, which is now available for purchase on my webinar page. Feel free to take a look to better understand your relationship, self-worth, and financial issues.

For the next 28 days, the New Moon in fun-loving, extroverted Leo has us looking for…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 21-25 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurusor Scorpio? Or do you have an Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer? This New Moon may impact you more than others.

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.

Since there will be a Moon VoC phase starting at the same time as the New Moon becomes exact, we will need to wait several hours before setting our intentions during the best & most potent time. This month’s best and most potent time would be between 7:14pm on August 16th and 5:38am on Aug. 18th. As always, all times are in EDT — the New York timezone.

If you live outside the EDT timezone and converting timezones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fanpage and following me on Twitter. I will post reminders on both platforms on August 16th, 17th, and 18th to let you know the best time to set your intentions.

Super Full Moon in Aquarius – the article

On August 1st, at 2:32pm EDT, the Full Moon becomes exact in 9 degrees of Aquarius. The entrance of the Moon into Aquarius Monday night (July 31st) started the energetic build-up towards this Full Moon; the Moon in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius opposes the Sun in fun-loving, expressive Leo. 

Oppositions always resonate back to the conjunction of the planets involved. We are looking to see how far we have come since that conjunction. For example, with the Full Moon, we are looking back to the previous New Moon (in this case, July 17th) to see what has developed since then.

This is the second of four Super Full Moons in a row where the Moon is closer to the Earth, increasing its tidal and electromagnetic effects. As each of us has a personal electromagnetic field and the adult body is composed of 55-70% water (depending on the person), SuperMoons also have a much greater effect on us.

From an astronomic point of view, they occur because the Moon’s orbit is elliptical, rather than a perfect circle, so the Moon’s distance from the Earth varies.

SuperMoons are 15% brighter than an average Full Moon and 30% brighter than when the Moon is at its farthest distance from the Earth. For more on the astronomy of SuperMoons, click here

Here are the astrological highlights of this Super Full Moon chart:

  • Jupiter in Taurus squares the Full Moon polarity & trines Mars in Virgo
  • Uranus (the modern ruler of Aquarius) squares an exalted Venus in Leo & is approaching a Trine to Pluto in Capricorn
  • Saturn (the traditional ruler of Aquarius) opposes a Mercury/Mars alignment in Virgo
  • Neptune in Pisces is the Focal Point of a YOD, making a quincunx to an exalted Venus in Leo & the South Node in Libra
  • Venus in Leo also makes a Trine to the North Node in Aries
  • Pluto in Capricorn still squares the Moon Nodes polarity (Aries-Libra), since July 17th in those particular signs

But first, let’s talk about the Full Moon polarity (and if you know this polarity already, feel free to skip this part of the article to the details of this particular Super Full Moon chart — the aspects):

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…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 7-11 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, 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)

Again, Venus is not only exalted until August 2nd but also in her Retrograde motion since July 22nd (and this lasts until Sept. 3rd, 2023), which we will discuss in great detail in our next Forecasting Forum on August 2nd at 5pm EDT/2pm PT!

New Moon in Cancer — the article

On July 17th at 2:32pm EDT/7:32pm London time, the New Moon becomes exact in 25 degrees of Cancer; this is the beginning of a new Moon cycle. Feel free to also watch my New Moon video on the subject.

This New Moon is powerful in that it makes aspects to all the outer planets (Neptune in Pisces, Pluto in Capricorn & Uranus in Taurus). With this many outer planets actively involved in this New Moon chart, we are invited to do some deeper Soul-work. The New Moon also squares Chiron, the wounded Healer!

We have two planets in their Station phases and thus exalted: Venus in Leo & Chiron in Aries. Both of them are preparing for their upcoming Retrograde phases; Venus is also involved in a YOD aspect with Neptune & Pluto (again, two outer planets).

Another thing worth mentioning with this New Moon chart: the Moon Nodes change signs only 90 minutes after the New Moon becomes exact (into Aries-Libra).

This 18-month journey begins with a Square to Pluto in Capricorn (exact on July 23rd and & 28th) which will be within 5 degrees of the Moon Nodes until Dec. 8th, 2023! — but before we unwrap the meaning of all of this, let’s first talk about the Cancer archetype:

Cancer is the first water sign of the zodiac, as such, it relates to the development of the “emotional body” — so this Moon cycle amplifies feelings, instincts, and needs.

Cancer represents the yin, receptive principle, which births, nurtures, and protects life. The Sun and Moon in Cancer remind us that we must also receive as well as give. Both constant giving and constant taking are unhealthy and unsustainable.

Our feeling nature has been denied and suppressed for millennia, but we have begun to embrace it more fully since 2011, when Neptune started its journey through Pisces.

Feelings are an essential source of information about our true needs — they are a dashboard that tells us what is healthy for us. When we don’t heed that information, we become dependent on others for validation and direction, or lose ourselves in addictions and distractions.

With this New Moon occurring in protective, introverted Cancer, we are invited to surround ourselves with quality and safety; we can expect anything connected to home, family, real estate, or childhood issues to be heightened in our awareness for the next four weeks.

This New Moon highlights the importance of listening to our feelings, focusing on Self-care, healing old wounds from the past, and releasing unhealthy patterns that keep us stuck in the past.

Cancer is all about supporting and protecting life, but many of us are conditioned to ignore our own bodies and our environment — along with our inner life, feeling-bodies, and emotional/spiritual connection to other life forms.

This creates a disconnect not only from our true selves but also from the rest of the world. Many of us tend to put little value on emotional intelligence, but it’s very hard to have meaningful, authentic connections without it — and it begins with self-connection and self-awareness.

Ask yourself: What might I do differently if my feelings were just little children that wanted to be heard? What price might I be paying for denying or suppressing their little voices?

Cancer reminds us that water and life are inseparable. Water corresponds with feelings: both must flow. Stagnant water breeds disease and suppressed emotions can likewise make us ill.

Ask yourself: Could I simply allow myself to feel my feelings without needing to understand them? Without needing to know why I am feeling what I am feeling? Without launching into problem-solving? If nothing else, could I try this out as an experiment, just to see what might transpire?

And here’s a bonus question: What would the healthy mother-archetype do?

The Cancer energy is connected to family and home (this could be a physical or emotional “home”). Given this, a shift with past issues around feeling “at home”, “safe”,  or “nurtured”– both internally and in the world — might move to the forefront in the next couple of weeks.

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 — things like giving and receiving nurturing, caring for ourselves in terms of our emotional and physical state, and so on.

Ask yourself: Am I rooted in fertile ground? Am I thriving? What else do I need to flourish and grow? What has changed for me in the past 3 years in that regard? How does Self-care show up in my life now vs. then?

Now, let’s talk about some of the aspects of this New Moon chart:

The New Moon in Cancer makes a Trine to Neptune in Pisces, an Opposition to Pluto in Capricorn, a Sextile to Uranus in Taurus, and a Square to an exalted Chiron in Aries. So let’s unwrap that…

The Trine to Neptune (currently in its Retrograde motion) supports an inner “flow state” and emotional connection to loved ones; spiritual and creative endeavors are favored with this combo. Our capacity for compassion is quite strong as well, both for ourselves and others, and we are feeling especially intuitive.

Ask yourself: When I tune into myself what do I feel connected to? What if I tune into life itself? What from my past is asking to be released? Where is it time to open myself up fully on an emotional level?

The Opposition to Pluto (currently in its Retrograde motion): we may take an all-or-nothing attitude toward others, this could drive some tension or oppositional behaviors, so as best you can, remain flexible, and practice self-care — take good care of your emotional and physical body.

As best as you can, trust what resonates, what rings true, what empowers and connects — rather than what agitates and polarizes.

Ask yourself: What is my motivation for achieving something out there in the world? How about at home? Where might the balance point be between home/family and career/long-term goals?

How might a deep focus on self-care or emotional authenticity serve me at this time? What needs to transform so I can feel more empowered?

It will also help to remain aware of whether we empower ourselves and/or others in our interactions — for example, taking things too personally is not recommended.

Ask yourself: How might a focus on nurturing myself feel empowering to myself and others?

The Sextile to Uranus provides an opportunity to connect with others and share a new vision about the Earth, physical matters such as finances, or a reinvention of how we connect with “the good things in life”.

Ask yourself: What if the whole Universe was intelligent? What if that included every cell in my body? What knowledge would my body want to share with me? How could I use these new ideas to support my emotional and physical well-being? What feels the most nurturing?

Before the talk about the Square to Chiron, let’s talk about the two exalted planets of this New Moon chart:

Venus in Leo & Chiron in Aries: we can expect to feel their energies more strongly until early August.

With Venus exalted, we are invited to pay even closer attention to what matters to us, our values, likes & dislikes, preferences, as well as how we spend or invest our money, what brings us joy, what doesn’t, and what’s important at this time (and whether we can express it). What or who do we love? What needs to change?

Venus comes to a halt and starts her 6-week Retrograde phase on July 22nd. Chiron comes to a halt and starts its 5-month Retrograde phase less than 12 hours later, on July 23rd.

We will cover Venus’ Retrograde phase in courageously heart-centered & self-expressed Leo in much more detail on Aug. 2nd, 2023 at 5pm EDT in our next Forecasting Forum. If you would like to know how the planet of (self-) love, relationships, and money matters is impacting you personally, feel free to join us.

We will look at our own birth charts, and I will take you through this process step by step, so you can understand the impact on your own life, even if you are not a seasoned Astrologer.

There will be an Early Bird registration fee for everyone who jumps in fast. That reduced fee is available until July 31st! (A 15% reduction from the regular fee). After July 31st the price goes up.

Now, let’s talk about the exalted Chiron in Aries: we are invited to pay even closer attention to the healing of the wounded masculine archetype within us — how we handle anger, impatience, our desire to dominate, be independent or “show our strength”, etc. (for example, perhaps it doesn’t feel ok to be that way, maybe even the thought brings up shame, and so on…)

Now, let’s talk about the New Moon’s Square to Chiron: This asks us to stretch ourselves. Our past conditioning and wounded sense of Self may be out of harmony; we are invited to make adjustments and, as best as we can, find creative solutions to seemingly insoluble situations.

Ask yourself: What if I gave myself permission to make space both for healing around my self-identity (in other words, for recognizing the limitations around my persona), and for taking care of home or family issues?

As best as you can, take this as an opportunity to make space for feeling vulnerable or emotional, without seeing yourself as weak or “less than”. It is perfectly ok to be yourself, and that may involve feeling insecure once in a while — so give compassion and love to yourself and others. After all, we are all human…

Ask yourself: Where does the wounded masculine cry out for my compassionate awareness (or even my love)? What if I gave it also to those who have not been able to model masculine energies in an “acceptable” way? What if I extended that even to myself, if and when I fall into that category? Even if I get triggered?

Remember: Anger can be a reaction to a boundary violation, and/or a cover for another emotion — often fear, sadness, or shame.

For those of you who want to have a better understanding of your personal healing journeyI recommend watching: “Chiron in Aries — Healing the Wounded Masculine

Mercury’s Trine to Chiron in Aries gives us some support — it makes is easier for us to connect with others, socialize, and take a compassionate approach toward ourselves and others, especially when it comes to our identity, personal goals, and passions.

We feel more confident to connect and communicate without seeing ourselves as weak or “less than”. We feel perfectly ok to be ourselves, and that may involve feeling insecure.

Ask yourself: Could I allow myself and others to be human? What if I talked about my flaws, idiosyncrasies, and insecurities? How might this support my own healing process? Someone else’s?

Mercury also squares Jupiter in Taurus. With this aspect, we may have to learn about our assumptions, our thinking processes and our social conditioning.

“Listening” might not be our strong suit at this time: we may want to share our personal thoughts and joy without limitations, and are thus inclined to exaggeration, often unintended.

Ask yourself: What if honoring my physical reality, helped me listen to myself 5% more? What might become possible with growing my own personal resources if I were 5% more aware of the assumptions I am making at any given moment? Or of my expectations? Am I expecting too much of myself? Too little?

Venus in Leo is also involved in a Yod aspect with Neptune & Pluto. A Yod consists of two Quincunxes — aspects that signal inner discomfort and the need for some adjustments.

Both Quincunxes are pointing towards Venus in Leo, making Venus the Focus of this aspect, so the adjustments in question must be made so we can value ourselves, and connect from an authentic, heart-felt place, even if it feels uncomfortable.

For the next 28 daysask yourself: What do I feel when I honor my heart? What do I need to express that is dear to my heart — even when fear is present? Even when I want to turn inwards or escape life? Even when it feels uncomfortable to do so?

How can I be courageous in my self-expression without dominating others? Could I permit myself to get in touch with my inner child — and allow myself to have some fun?

Could I refrain from getting attached to things going “my way”? What if “pride” was able to take a back seat? What if I focused on gratitude, giving compliments, connecting to my inner joy, and being playful instead?

Another thing worth mentioning with this New Moon chart: the Moon Nodes change signs only 90 minutes after the New Moon becomes exact (into Aries-Libra).

We covered this 18-month journey in our last Forecasting Forum, and you can get access to this 115-minute webinar, right here, right now, normally it’s $37.00, but for the next seven days (until July 22nd), it is available for the special price of only $33!

I highly recommend watching this webinar! It is super informative! It will help you understand the lessons and meaning behind the transiting Moon Nodes in Aries-Libra and your individual journey in connection with relationships & self-identity over the next 18 months!

The ongoing Moon Nodes’ Square to Pluto in Capricorn indicates that we are at a turning point — individually and collectively speaking! This is a huge opportunity to release past patterns that we’ve been carrying for decades — including those that span generations.

We may feel an obsession (or tremendous passion) for career achievements and economic autonomy — but also out of control or fearful about our economic future.

Ask yourself: What am I most scared about regarding my standing in society or my long-term achievements? Do I have concerns about authority figures? My own authority in the world?

Where do I feel “out of control”? Where am I trying too hard to self-protect or control an outcome? What if I surrendered all my fears and trusted the divine power within?

Am I ready for some profound changes? Where am I looking to create more empowerment in my life? What about the lives of others? What needs to happen so I can shift my current situation? What role does “trust” play in all of this? Am I allowing myself to hear the deepest calling of my Soul?

Pluto always invites us to integrate the opposite sign it’s in for balance and true empowerment. While in Capricorn, that balance comes from nurturing, protective, introverted, home & family-oriented Cancer.

We are invited to empower ourselves at home, with loved ones, and by focusing on self-care and whatever feels nurturing to our inner baby.

This is an invitation to balance our obsessions around an empowered career with our focus on getting plenty of rest, healthy nourishment, and affection.

Ask yourself: What would a powerful approach to self-care look like at home? With family? Elsewhere?

How might nurturing myself support my self-connection? My connection to others? The world at large? How might it support my career ambitions? What if self-care was the first step toward meaningful achievement?

The term “self-soothing” resonates beautifully here. Ask yourself: What does self-soothing mean to me? What would that look like? How could I nurture myself to the point that I am at once connected to others and yet completely independent?

Mars — the ruler of Aries, currently moving through Virgo — opposes Saturn in Pisces (currently in its Retrograde motion). We are invited to live in moderation now — but this may be frustrating, as we face tests or trials that remind us that pushing too hard or fast doesn’t always get us the results we want. It’s time to slow down a little and catch our breath.

Ask yourself: What would it look like if I took things one step at a time? What is the reality of a situation that I find myself in? Does it serve me, in the long run, to try and figure it all out in advance? To have all the answers? To do it all perfectly? What emotional and spiritual toll might that take on me?

To sum it all up: this New Moon reminds us that to be a “successful human being” we must take really good care of our emotional and physical well-being.

If we can allow the inner masculine (taking action, being assertive, etc.) to protect and co-create with the feminine (allowing for feelings to move through, receiving, etc.), we will go further than we can imagine. It is very important to allow ourselves extra time to rest, release, and recalibrate.

Neptune, Pluto, and Saturn — in their retrograde motion — provide inner emphasis for clearing out any old trauma and conditioning from our childhood, past lives, and ancestral patterning.

For the next four weeks, as best as you can, allow yourself to release (Neptune) & transform (Pluto). The more you do, the deeper will go your sense of inner peace, wholeness, and creative power.

Ask yourself: Could I allow myself to go deeper and tap into my “true inner power” (the one that allows me to keep my heart open)? One that allows me to see that all things — the good, the bad, and the ugly — ultimately are part of the creative process, a part of my personal evolution.

Now more than ever, the world actually needs people that know how to nurture themselves, people who honor their feeling-body, who have a healthy center, and who follow their inner compass! Ask yourself: Would I rather feel safe or grow as an individual?

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 23-27 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, or Libra? 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 any time between 2:32pm and 11:06pm (on Monday, July 17th); and then again, 93 minutes later, between 12:39am (on Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, July 18th) and 2:32pm (on Wednesday, July 19th).

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 July 17, 18th, and 19th to let you know when it is time to set your intentions.

I talked about my upcoming Forecasting Forum about the Venus Retrograde phase in Leo which will give you some insight into where you are looking at relationship, financial or self-worth issues right now.

I also talked about my Chiron webinar: Healing the Wounded Masculine, and my Moon Nodes webinar: Our Soul’s Journey: Unveiling the Significance of the Moon Nodes in Aries-Libra .

Take a look at each of those webinars here for more information and a more personalized understanding of those planetary movements.

 

Moon Nodes in Aries-Libra until 2025 – the article

On July 17th, 2023, at 4pm EDT, the Moon Nodes switch from Taurus/Scorpio to Aries/Libra; they will remain in those signs until January 11th, 2025!

The last time the Moon Nodes were in these particular signs was back in late December 2004 until June 2006.

The transiting 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: individual drives or goals (symbolized by Aries) and one-on-one relationships (linked to Libra).

We will thus need to look closely at the balance between “me” versus “the other” – and become more conscious about our wanting approval and any co-dependency with others.

Libra represents our desire to feel connected and see both sides of the coin by looking at contrast and comparison; and in terms of balancing these energies, we need to learn how to be an individual who is free to explore and express themselves (Aries).

Collaboration might be just what we need to create a shift in finding our path and following our passions.

The Aries/Libra polarity directs our awareness to…

The 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 speaking.

The Eclipse dates that are connected to this particular polarity are:

April 20th, 2023 – North Node (NN) Solar Eclipse in 29 degrees of Aries

Super Full Moon in Capricorn — the article

On July 3rd, at 7:39am EDT, the Moon opposes the Sun in 11 degrees of Capricorn. To learn more about this month’s Full Moon and if you are a Member of my online community, click here to watch my Full Moon video.

Just a quick reminder: you have until July 3rd at midnight EDT to sign up for the next FORECASTING FORUM with the Early Bird Special! If you are a Star Member already, you are automatically registered! More about the specifics towards the end of this article…

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

Secondly, lots of planets are involved in this Super Full Moon chart:

  • Mercury aligns with the Sun in Cancer
  • the Moon in Capricorn & Saturn in Pisces make several aspects to multiple planets
  • Venus aligns with Mars in Leo
  • Venus & Mars both square Uranus in Taurus, and they both trine Chiron in Aries

Neptune in Pisces is still stationing and thus more exalted — indicating that something is in our face and demands our awareness in connection with the feminine energies (such as allowing, resting, sensing, intuiting, and feeling into the flow of things…) and all of this plays an essential role for the next two weeks, so buckle up!

Saturn in Pisces plays a huge role in this Full Moon chart, firstly because it is the ruler of Capricorn and, consequently, also the ruler of this Full Moon.

Secondly, Saturn also sextiles the Moon in Capricorn, making the next two weeks an opportunity for us to focus on what’s essential and bring a sense of flow to our long-term goals or plans. More details about Saturn’s other aspects in a moment…

First, let’s look at the polarities of this Full Moon: The Moon in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn opposes the Sun & Mercury 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).

The Moon, in opposition to the Mercury/Sun alignment in Cancer, asks us to balance loving, caring connection and sharing against our need to achieve our long-term goals. As best as you can, steer by…

New Moon in Gemini — the article

On June 18th at 12:37am EDTthe Moon aligns with the Sun in almost 27 degrees of Gemini. I recommend you also watch my New Moon video on the subject.

One major thing to note in this New Moon chart is that Pluto has moved back into Capricorn, since the last Full Moon and does now answer again to Saturn (Saturn rules Capricorn). We also have Neptune & Saturn (both of them in Pisces) in their Station phases — and therefore exalted.

Something is therefore “in our face” in regards to those energies, demanding our attention and awareness; I will talk more about all of this below, but first, let’s look at the Gemini influence of this New Moon and its aspects:

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 what new thought structures we might want to engage with.

The New Moon in Gemini squares an exalted Neptune in Pisces. With any Square we are invited to stretch and grow. It challenges us to get out of our comfort zone and to work through something that requires a creative approach. We are asked to make changes that may not necessarily come naturally but that are required if we want to grow and move to the next level of our journey.

In this case, our comfort zone is the mind (Gemini) and our need to be mentally busy and engaged. The challenge here is finding a way to trust our intuition (Pisces) and turn inwards for answers and direction.

Ask yourself: What might be possible if I allowed myself to shift from only paying attention to my conditioned mind, to getting present in the here and now and feeling into the energy and truth of who I am?

Is it possible that what I understand with the mind is very different from what I comprehend with the heart? And if that is so, could I trust my heart 5% more than I have done previously? Could I allow myself to slow down and be in the knowing that all is well, all of the time?

Keep in mind that Neptune is exalted (stationing) at the time of the New Moon (until July 14th), and its energy is thus louder; we may not only feel more…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 24-29 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, any time between 12:37am and 2:24am (on June 18th) would be best, then again from 6:58am (on June 18th) until 12:37am (on June 20th) — please note that all times are given in the Eastern Daylight Timezone — 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 Sunday, June 18th and Monday, June 19th to let you know when it is time to set your intentions.

Full Moon in Sagittarius — the article

On Saturday, June 3rd at 11:42pm EDTthe Full Moon in 13 degrees of Sagittarius  becomes exact. We start to feel the Full Moon build from the moment the Moon enters Sagittarius early that same morning. 

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). 

To learn more about this month’s Full Moon and if you are a Member of my online communityplease click here to watch my Full Moon video

Just to give you an overview:

  • The Moon in Sagittarius makes several aspects in this Full Moon chart, as does Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius.
  • Venus is getting ready to change signs from Cancer to Leo (on June 5th), following in Mars’ footsteps.
  • Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is conjunct Uranus in Taurus.
  • Saturn in Pisces will start to slow down (station, and is thus exalted) from June 6th on.

More about the specifics in a moment, but one thing to remember: Full Moons are always times of awareness and culmination. We see things we have not seen before and get to make changes if we don’t like what we see.

So think back to the New Moon phase that started on May 19th: What seeds were planted then? What has “sprouted” since?

Before we talk about all of the aspects of this Full Moon, let’s first talk about the Sagittarian-Gemini polarity:

At its highest vibration, Sagittarius shows us a broader perspective, which has us looking beyond facts and learned knowledge to our direct life experiences and the wisdom gained. It’s all about seeking a higher truth and meaning for life’s challenges — a philosophy that would help us understand life’s trials and tribulations.

So that’s Sagittarius’s highest vibration — what of its shadow side?

When we suppress this energy inside of us, we become unquestioningly attached to our belief systems and the stories we tell ourselves about life — and therefore self-righteous — perhaps we even persecute those who differ in their point of view. We are also more easily susceptible to excesses of all kinds.

Now let’s look at Gemini: at its highest vibration, this sign helps us stay connected to our immediate environment and “day-to-day mind” — processing and sharing as much information as we can, as quickly as possible — we stay curious, constantly looking for ways to learn what we need to connect all the dots and communicate intelligently.

When we suppress the higher vibration of the Gemini energy, we likewise move into its shadow side

New Moon in Taurus — the article

On May 19th, at 11:53am EDT, the New Moon becomes exact in 28.5 degrees of Taurus. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle; it also marks the end of Eclipse Season!  Click here to watch my video on the subject.

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 doing so…

Quick announcement: From May 14th until May 21st, I have several discounts available on my website, because it is my Birthday that week ==> for the Discount Coupon Codes check my Weekly Forecast-post on May 14th

This New Moon sextiles Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Cancer, conjuncts Uranus in Taurus, and trines a retrograde Pluto in 0º of Aquarius. 

Mercury in Taurus & Mars in Cancer are both exalted at the time of this New Moon (for different reasons), the Moon and Venus are in a mutual reception to each other, and we have a T-Square/GrandCross with Jupiter in Taurus as the Focal Point.

So, as you can see, lots going on in this New Moon chart, collectively painting a complex picture with a focus on the feminine, receptive energies. Nine out of eleven planets are in feminine signs.

Before we go into all of these aspects in more detail, however, let’s first talk about the sign of Taurus. With 6 planets/points (Jupiter, North Node, Mercury, Uranus, the Sun & the Moon) in Taurus, we are feeling a strong need to focus on this earthy sign for the next 28 days:

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 with 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 or heard this?

Let’s talk about some of the aspects in this New Moon chart: The New Moon in Taurus sextiles Neptune in Pisces:

Taurus ultimately seeks to honor spirit in form, recognizing the physical world as an expression of the divine, and the body as a sacred vehicle.

Pisces understands the paradox between physical and spiritual — between matter and energy. This is therefore an opportunity to join our need for material comfort and enjoyment of life to a gentler and more intuitive approach.

Ask yourself: How might…

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 26-29 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius, or 0-1 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.

This month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would therefore be between 11:53am on May 19th and 11:53am on May 21st. The only exception would be a 1-hour period on Friday afternoon, May 19th — there will be a brief Moon VoC between 1:51pm and 2:48pm. All of the above times are given in US East Coast time.

Jupiter in Taurus 2023/24 – the article

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio — the article

On May 5th, at 1:34pm EDTthe Moon opposes the Sun in 15 degrees of Scorpio/Taurus. The entrance of the Moon into Scorpio on May 4thbegins the energetic build-up towards this powerful Full Moon.

This powerful Full Moon is a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse (the most subtle kind of Lunar Eclipses) that can be viewed in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica, the South Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean, and the Pacific Ocean. The duration lasts 258 minutes (= 4hrs 18min.). This means that we will feel the influence of this Lunar Eclipse for four months and nine days.

This particular Lunar Eclipse is the second of two Eclipses within two weeks; it offers an opportunity for a deeper, more authentic connection with ourselves and others. 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.

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Full Moon slowly dims as it passes through the Earth’s shadow, stimulating our emotional body and increasing our awareness of unconscious patterns and fears. This means we may feel more easily triggered as buried emotions, motivations, and fears surface. Beware of projections and jumping to conclusions.

If you are not sure when you are projecting something on someone else, check for these signs: defensiveness, over-reactivity, or difficulty being objective while exhibiting rigid behaviors.

If you’d like to learn more, and as a Member of my online community, click here to watch my full-length Lunar Eclipse video. ==> Not yet a Member? Watch a 5-minute excerpt of my Lunar Eclipse video here.

As you might know from my last Solar Eclipse video, Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey (both collectively and individually). The Moon Nodes remain in a particular polarity for 18 months. They have been in Taurus-Scorpio since Jan. 18th, 2022, highlighting issues around emotional trauma/fears & physical stability, finance, and our relationship with our physical environment and natural resources.

The North Node in Taurus emphasizes the necessity of self-esteem and a healthy relationship with the physical world — with our bodies, resources, and the Earth. The South Node in Scorpio symbolizes our need to face our fears, heal old trauma, be conscious of our motivations, and own our power, so we can step into a more passionate relationship with life and others.

Eclipses reoccur in 19-year cycles. On May 4th, 2004, there was a South Node Lunar Eclipse at 14º42’ Scorpio-Taurus, very close to the degree of this Eclipse. Ask yourself: What areas of my life needed to be addressed back then? Where am I being called to make major changes now?

All Eclipses transmit new energetic codes and transformative downloads, symbolized by the signs involved, in this case: The Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio opposes the Sun in steady, peaceful Taurus.

There are several aspects worth mentioning in this Full Moon-Lunar Eclipse chart:

  • Pluto (the ruler of Scorpio) is currently in Aquarius — and still exalted, although already in its Retrograde motion — squares Mercury (also in its Retrograde motion) in Taurus, and the Moon Nodes in Taurus-Scorpio
  • Mars (the co-ruler of Scorpio), currently in Cancer, still squares Chiron in Aries (as we already saw at the time of the Solar Eclipse)
  • Venus (the ruler of Taurus) squares Neptune in Pisces and sextiles Jupiter in Aries
  • Saturn in Pisces trines the South Node in Scorpio and sextiles the Mercury-North Node alignment in Taurus
  • Last but not least, Uranus plays a significant role in this Eclipse chart — and we will address all of these planetary alignments in a moment.

Since this Lunar Eclipse is almost a continuation of the last Lunar Eclipse in November of 2022, in 16º of Taurus-Scorpio, we can check to see how far we have come since then, when it comes to facing our fears and valuing ourselves and our authentic relationships to others.

Ask yourself: What fears or inauthentic (or even toxic) relationships must I still release or transform if I am to step into greater abundance and happiness in my life? What has changed for me in the last six months? What is calling to me now?

For the next 4 months, 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 Lunar Eclipse brings greater awareness to what was unconscious or hidden previously. 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 Eclipse’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?

Because Eclipses are so powerful, I use 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 15º of Scorpio…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 10-20 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, or Aquarius? If so, you are more affected by this month’s powerful 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).
