Full Moon in Sagittarius — the article

On May 23rd at 9:53am EDTthe Full Moon in almost 3 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). 

If you are a Member of my online community and would like to learn more, click here to watch my Full Moon video

Before we dive in, I invite you to join me on Saturday, June 29th. I will be doing a One-day Yoga/Astrology Retreat with the lovely Sam Lodge in the country, near Robinson Township, outside of Pittsburgh. Whether you live in the area or would like to come visit, check out my Retreat page for more info! 

I will just say this: This is an amazing opportunity to spend 7 hours exploring yourself (body, mind, spirit) and nature in the company of other like-minded souls. Your body, mind, and Soul will thank you for this whole-hearted experience.

I am currently offering Early Bird Pricing**, so sign up now before the price goes up! We can only accommodate 10 beautiful Souls, so I will notify everyone when we have reached capacity.

==> Sam and I will do an Instagram Live on May 25th, to answer questions and share about our One Day Retreat, feel free to join us here at 1pm EDT to get all the juicy information <==

**Members of my online community will still be able to get a 25% discount from June 16th to 28th. So, even if you miss the Early Bird Pricing, you can still get an amazing discount after that’s over, as long as we still have spots available. Again, this is only available to my active Members!

Here’s a quick overview of what I’ll discuss in this article:

  • The Moon in Sagittarius sextiles Pluto in Aquarius, which means that the Sun in Gemini trines Pluto.
  • Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, aligns with Venus in Taurus, both at 29º (an exalted degree)!
  • Venus enters Gemini only 12 hours after the Full Moon becomes exact, and Jupiter will follow suit two days later (on May 25th)
  • Jupiter & Venus sextile Neptune in Pisces (with Neptune at 29º!)
  • Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is also in Taurus, making a wide Square to Pluto in Aquarius.
  • Mars is currently in its domicile sign and will be sandwiched between the North Node & Chiron in Aries at the time of the Full Moon.

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 7th: What seeds were planted then? What has “sprouted” since? What are you aware of now that was not apparent before?

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

Gemini deals with information exchange, observation, and objectivity, while Sagittarius deals with what’s beyond our thinking — indeed, beyond information — this includes things like interpretation and ethics.

In other words, what do we think, believe, and “really know”? We are invited to become more aware of the difference between facts vs. beliefs, truth vs. fabrication, and meaningful activity vs. diversions.

At its highest vibration, Sagittarius shows us…

New Moon in Taurus — the article

On May 7th, at 11:22pm EDT, the New Moon becomes exact in 18 degrees of Taurus. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle.  Click here to watch my video on the subject.

As best as you can, get really quiet 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…

Before we dive in, let me just mention my next Podcast/Radio Show: “Hot Astrology Friday” which will be live on May 17th at 8am ET via Youtube & 8am PT via KMET Radio. Save the date in your calendar!

We will talk about Jupiter’s upcoming journey through Gemini. So don’t miss this if you are at all curious how the next 13 months can make your life incrementally better!

And if you live in the Pittsburgh area or would like to come visit, check out my Retreat page, I will be doing a One-day Yoga/Astrology Retreat on Saturday, June 29th in the country — near the Pittsburgh airport.

Back to the New Moon:

  • This New Moon sextiles Saturn in Pisces (almost exact), then we have a line-up in Taurus, starting with Venus (in the sign she rules) followed by the Sun & Moon, then Uranus & Jupiter in Taurus — which brings a huge emphasis to the Taurean-energy.
  • Venus still makes a wide Square to an exalted Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius at the time of the New Moon (this started when she entered Taurus on April 29th).
  • Neptune, in a late degree of Pisces, and Mars, in an early degree of Aries, makes a wide Sextile to the exalted Pluto. Mars is also approaching a conjunction with the North Node in Aries (exact on May 19th).
  • We also have semi-Square between Saturn and Pluto that is worth mentioning, and Mercury is making its final pass over Chiron in Aries — the first of three passes was on March 20th, the second one during Mercury’s Retrograde phase on April 15th, and the third and last one is exact on May 6th, only 24 hours before the New Moon becomes exact!
  • Mercury is still in its post-Shadow phase until May 13th, asking us to review anything that has come up during the Mercury Retrograde phase (April 1st until the 25th).

So, as you can see, lots going on in this New Moon chart, collectively painting a complex picture with a focus on the balance of masculine and feminine energies.

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

With 5 planets 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.

How can we change our mindset about those earthly matters? What would the combination of a deep knowing and a deep-rooted sense of being at home in our body and the world feel like?

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? (maybe journal on this)

Let’s talk about some of the aspects in this New Moon chart, starting with the most exact one:

The New Moon in Taurus sextiles Saturn 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. 

As such, this aspect presents an opportunity to join our need for material comfort and enjoyment of life to a practice that supports a more intuitive approach. This is an opportunity to…

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 16-20 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, or Aquarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

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

This month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be between 11:22pm on May 7th, and 11:22pm on May 9th. The only exception will be a 1.5-hour period on May 8th — there will be a brief Moon VoC between 5:55pm and 7:20pm — all of the above times are given in US East Coast time.

For more info on setting New Moon Intentions, click here

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US-Eastern Daylight Savings Time), join my Facebook Page or follow me on Twitter/X. I will be posting reminders on May 7th, 8th, and 9th — to let you know that it’s the best time to set your intentions

Again, the New Moon conjuncts Uranus & Jupiter in Taurus. This brings more awareness and emphasis to the Jupiter-Uranus alignment that began earlier this year, was exact on April 20th, and is still strong until May 19th and in the same sign until May 25th! 

==> Feel free to also watch/get my 95-min. webinar on the subject, here.

We covered all the Houses in our birth charts, and the Jupiter-Uranus cycles over the past 14 years and the next 14 years to come! Great webinar; definitely watch it if you haven’t seen it yet!

 

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!

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…

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.

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.

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).
