A full moon is happening in Virgo @20 degrees, 10th 3:47am(aest) a full moon brings about a conclusion or you see the totality of something.

This Virgo Full Moon is opposite Sun and Neptune in Pisces, trines Pluto/Jupiter in Capricorn, Mercury also stations direct in Pisces on the same day. A change can occur.

Hopefully, this moon will bring in a grounded and practical approach, in finding new solutions to any problems around confusion, vagueness, being lost, feeling stuck. Virgo full moon shifts/lift a little of this stuff.

Virgo is what you do in your daily life, Virgo is also asking you to make things better, taking care of whatever needs to get done at this time, this moon may highlight in  practical, logical ways these things can be approached. Virgo finds solutions, you might find that you see something that you did not see before. Full Moon illuminates, reflects, brings things to the surface for you to see.

With Mercury, who rules Virgo, stationing to go direct and being in Aquarius you may get some new insight, information, communication in how to do this, or you may just get some answers to question that up until now have been lost in the emotional haze of the Pisces Sun conjunct Neptune. It may be delivered in a detached way, but will be clear.

Sun/Neptune conjunction, may have found you just wanting to float away, the emotions or feelings may have been making you feel stuck or just not enjoying yourself, however the Virgo Moon arrives in time, to ground, anchor and bring you back down to earth, to help you get clear about what to do next and how to do it.  

Moon also gets support from Pluto/Jupiter in Capricorn, transformation, expansion, growth and optimism can help to turn things around. Also giving you the strength to do what needs to get done.

Look at where you are now and accept what is, accept your current reality, then you can figure out the next step. Trust you will know which way to proceed forward. 

March is a month of change, many moves happen in the cosmos, Saturn enters Aquarius you get a little glimmer of Saturn’s stay there. Venus now in her home sign of Taurus, meets up with Uranus after the full moon, a wake up or surprise around your values, worth and self esteem, brings in the energy of freedom/liberation after perhaps being stuck. Sun also moves into Aries which is the beginning of the astrological year. 

Best get out your own personal birth chart, now, and have a look at what areas of life this moon’s illuminating for you.

 

December 2018!

The year is wrapping up, here are some of the astro aspects for the month. It’s been a wild year, one with lots of twist, turns and surprises thanks to Uranus blowing out of Aries and into Taurus.

The month starts off with Moon in Virgo and ends the year with the Moon in Scorpio.
Uranus will be the only planet Rx at end of year, goes Direct on January 7th in Aries.
Just before Mars in Pisces hits is home sign of Aries on January 1st, he meets up with Chiron(feeling vulnerable/sore spot/wounding/healing), here you have the opportunity to heal or work with a sore spot, to turn a weakness into a strength. Taking some kind of action towards making something better.
Which may be a good thing as this gives you the opportunity to take care of some of the areas of life that have been battered and bruised. Aries is the planet of action/direction but it’s also your identity, your fiery energized self.
Mars bolts into Aries on Jan 1st, back to his home sign, Mars had a long rough Rx phrase this year and now is ready to go home to Aries, where the action planet is strong.

Full Moon in Gemini: Sifting Through!

Full Moon is at 0 deg Gemini, November 23rd @3:39 pm.

It’s opposite Jupiter, which is conjunct Sun in Sagittarius, and squares Mars in Pisces.

Gemini is information, thinking, talking, communication, ideas and sometimes multiple choices. Sagittarius is the bigger picture, with so much happening in Sagittarius at the moment you may want to go big, be bold, move quickly, expand your world and be enthusiastic.

Mars and Jupiter are in very expansive signs and still in a square connected to this Full Moon adding the extra push to go beyond and expand.

Mercury is the ruler of this Moon, it’s Rx, going over information, details, for answers that you seek. Finding your truth or what is right for you is the real issue which will be in the information/details. If choices are to be made or looked at here again it’s in the conversation, information and details, it’s important to go over everything closely.

Sagittarius way or vibe is too sometimes just leap or skip over things, this probably  is not the best idea for now. Searching through information or getting the right information is what you ideally need to do, Sagittarius is seeking to expand and go to the right new place and Gemini Moon can help you with this, but it’s going to be in the information, details, questioning to get you there. Mercury Rx you may go back to something of the past or it’s in the past.

This is high energy vibe and you may want to move fast, however it’s better to go slower. Mars in Pisces, Jupiter in Sagittarius expansive energy can take you further than you anticipated. You might just slip into something only to find you have to get back out again.

Wait until Mercury goes Direct if you can, when it’s a lot clearer and you can be sure.

As always go check out your birth chart for a more personal look at how and where this Full Moon in happening.

Full Moon Taurus….unstable stability!

25th October, 2018 @2:45 am @ 1° Taurus

Full Moon in Taurus, fixed earth, conjunct Uranus Rx, you may feel unsettled, unstable, edgy or nervous. Feeling or needs around staying stable/secure are going to be influenced by Uranus, which is every thing but that. Uranus is change, it usually is a shock, surprise, sudden or unexpected, which way that goes you don’t know. It may be exciting and liberating or not. Good news is Saturn is in the mix as the stabilizing influence, Saturn will hold some of the ground beneath your feet.

Taurus the bull likes it all be calm, chilled, relaxed, feeling good, satisfied, loves all of the good things that life can provide. Taurus, material, physical world, very earthy and grounded, rules areas of money, worth, resources, possession these are some of the things that may be shaken up and given new life to.

Being a full moon, a result, release or culmination will be illuminated, something that needs to be let go of or brought to the surface, for some it may be that you push through a blockage or a challenge.

Both Uranus and Venus are Rx, so it’s something that you have touched/working on before or you still are. Uranus may bring change, disruption or surprise, may not really be that much of a surprise, you never know.

Sun and Moon square Nodes of Fate moving away(south node in Aquarius) from a place of being on the edges, not shining, being aloof, detached or shock/trauma and stepping into a place of pride, connection and being centered (Leo, North Node) go with what feels right, that feels and looks more like you.

Saturn in Capricorn trine Moon/Uranus brings the stabilizing/grounding influence which is happy news because Uranus can shake it up. With focus, patience and following whatever the news or new is that Saturn/Uranus are working with. This is change, breaking free. Saturn and Uranus are both working together. Breakthroughs that can bring long-lasting result. But you may be having a whole bag of mixed feelings in regards to this.

It may not be an easy Full Moon, you may find yourself at a crossroads, past and future, which way to go? look at what emotions you’re feeling, stay grounded, focused, be disciplined and work with what is happening, this may not be the complete story as Rx planets are wrapped in this moon, they will show up again. However this is a pivotal point in the story, since April/May and Sept, you know the road your on, this may just be another twist and turn to the place your headed. So like the bull, try to keep it simple.

Like always how this will impact you depends on your personal birth chart and like always go check yours out.

 

Full Moon in Pisces, 26th August 2018! Let your dreams fall to earth!

Kites-of-Fate-1024x1024

Moon Art by HolgaJen

 

The Full Moon in Pisces is supported by a Grand Earth Trine -Virgo Sun, Uranus Rx in Taurus and Saturn Rx in Capricorn make up the easy and smooth flow. Uranus’s innovative ways of change, Saturn’s structure, rules and commitment, Virgo’s practical application for something to be fixed or improved on.

Pisces Moon is at the top Grand Trine, sextiles with Uranus and Saturn, makes this into a Kite (that’s the release point for the trine’s) here something may go or you find something really solidifies for you. Saturn and Uranus are both Rx, not dealing with something new it’s an old story.

Pisces Moon – dream into the magic, tap into the realms of spirit, a place where dreams are made of, let your imagination run wild and free to land onto the earthly realms for the dreams to be picked up and become real and true.

Pisces – something is dissolving, dissipates, melts away from you or for you, Pisces is the flow, find the natural way to go, you can’t force this into a particular place. Allow the magic of spirit to guide you along.

Full Moon’s the ending, culmination point, fling it away or drop it off. With the influence of the Grand Earth Trine, whatever is solid in your life after all the changes that have been going on since the beginning of the year. It’s manifestation time too, earth solidifies things into reality, anchors it all down. This is good, as the Full Moon’s a release point, to finally let go, so something else can now take its place. For some of you, you may find it’s the next step on the journey that you have also been on since March, May or even before. The Earth Trine is locking something in for you to go further.

Keep in mind, Mars the planet of action goes Direct 27th, this will help with forward progress, get it going again.

 

J U L Y – 2 0 1 8!

JULY - 2018!
July will be a big month, the eclipses are coming, the nodes of fate switches things up and around, In the sign of Cancer and Aquarius, are you ready for this?
July is another action packed month of planetary movements and change ups.
Good vibe in July, Jupiter goes Direct, a good thing, a little luck or joy may start to turn things around, especially for Saggies and Pisces as Jupiter rules these two sign.

Jul 5 – Chiron Retrograde 2°Aries – planet of wounds/healing, like all Rx phrase it’s an inward journey, Chiron always offers a gift, take the time out to do some healing work on the sore spots that have been poked, find the gift amongst the pain, as this is your offering.

Jul 9 – Venus enters Virgo – planet of love, money, relationships, likes/dislikes enters Virgo, mutable earth, be practical, realistic and humble, she gets more real and focused here. You may have a few choices to make, one of Virgo’s qualities is being discerning.

Jul 10 – Jupiter Direct 13°Scorpio – Bah Boom! planet of luck, abundance, growth and expansion goes Direct, might bring in a little shine and lift off some of the heavy emotions.

Jul 13 – New Moon solar eclipse in 20° Cancer – well, you never really know what is going to happen here, openings and closing.

Jul 22 – Sun enters Leo – you get to shine a little brighter.

Jul 26 – Mercury Retrograde 23°Leo – planet of communication, information, you all know about Mercury Rx.

Jul 27 – Full Moon Lunar eclipse 4° Aquarius – Yes, another eclipse, it’s always tricky, a light goes off and on, what changes during this time, fate/universe shifts thing around. It may take a while to see the full measure of the eclipses, they can last up to 6 months.

Jupiter goes Direct, Chiron and Mercury go Rx, still many planet in Rx phrase, slowing it all down. Adds to the slog, however it does give you time to breathe and to pace yourself, slow down, go over situations in your life. To see what was missed or overlooked before.

And… it all just keeps going on, and really, why should this month be any different.
It’s all still a mish-mash of chaos and uncertainty, might stay that way until September, so go grab your birth chart with glee and see where the action is taking place for you on a more personal level.

 

 

 

 

Full Moon in Sagittarius, 30th, May, 2018! urge for Freedom pushes you along!

 

throughtheravensdoor

Blend the past and the future together, one step at a time you move/weave to the next stage or part of your life. Let go, loosen the grip and most of all of have Faith.

– Grand water trine Venus in Cancer, Jupiter Rx in Scorpio and Neptune In Pisces.
– Moon in Sag trines the Leo North Node
– Sun in Gemini trines the Aquarius South Node.
– Sun sextiles North node
– Sun quincunx to Saturn in Capricorn.
– Sun, North Node, Saturn = Yod

Moon in Sag, seeking freedom, adventure, expansion, faith, wisdom and so much more. Sun in Gemini the details, information, communication and choices is the way to get this freedom. Move through, step by step, it all unfolds to take you further. And you may find it happens quickly with Gemini’s influence.

Grand water trine is the undercurrent that brings in a beautiful flow. Jupiter(expansion/freedom/faith), Venus(love/value/desire) and Neptune(spirit/faith).
This is useful as it helps to move you out. If opportunity comes your way, take a look at it, as it’s a stepping stone, to other ways of being and living. Plus the nodes are involved in this full moon, a purpose or more to life is trying to get your attention.

The Yod(destiny or fate), also known as the finger of God to Saturn, which is the quincunx, the uncomfortable part. A bigger plan is at work here, the external force that you have no control over is weaving the destiny of your future path. Sun shines (conscious awareness) on what you need to do/know, actions to take to meet up with the demands of Saturn(responsibilities/rules/limits). Has to be some boundaries/structure to work within. Which also helps with the grand water trine.

Sun points to the Leo north node, future path, shines the light on your purpose, identity, for you to fully start expressing your talents and gift. So shine your light, it’s the only way forward from here, no more hiding behind the old persona.

Full Moon in Sagittarius 30th May @0:20:46 am – culmination – leaving or falling away – freedom + new horizons.

 

 

Full Moon in Scorpio: Darkness pulls you out!

scorpio-Giovanni-Auriemma.

Art by Giovanni Auriemma

Full moon is square to north and south nodes + sextile to Saturn.

The layers that you have build around you, disintegrate, the past that you were buried under slowing falls away under the shadow and light of this full moon.

The energy is high, emotions are intense, the square puts you in a crisis mode, you want to stay in the stable, secure place, that your kinda comfy in. But the old is worn out and stale/stagnate, it no longer brings passion. To leave the old behind is scary, to face the new is unknown, this makes you feel uncomfortable and unsure. Brings in the fear.

Deep inside you want passion, connection, your spirit to feel challenged and alive. you want an authentic feeling, presence and essence to shine from you. To hang on is hard, to not let go is way harder. Bring peace to your heart, seek inside for the answers.

Allow what your deep emotions are telling you to do, it’s time to cross over. To let the shadows, the pain dissolve and come into the light.

Saturn/moon meet up with a harmonious sextile to help you to cross, a gentle nudge, push for your success. This does help with some nourishment, nature, comfort and security. They will also help crystallize the changes from the past that you are making. You have a good chance of success, a positive change.

Go steady, be determined, be sure. Trust the process, feel empowered and follow your heart to transformation and healing.

Full Moon in Libra, 31st March, 2018!

  • Moon in Libra, opposite Sun/Mercury in Aries
  • Moon/Sun squares Saturn/Mars in Capricorn
  • Venus enters Taurus
  • Moon trine South Node in Aquarius
  • Sun trine North Node in Leo

Life can be so frustrating, annoying, messy and a struggle, finding your way along, trying to find some peace from the outside world in which you live and interact. People poke and situations are all around you and you have to participate in it all, whether you want to or not, but how you want to do that is all up to you, under this Libra Full Moon you have the chance to think about this.

Libra finding some balance or finding your centre, getting back to a middle space or ground, you are getting a little help from Saturn and Mars with this Full Moon,even if it doesn’t feel like it. Saturn blocks or limits and Mars is the action, taking or even thinking of taking. It’s holding you back from going to far ahead or rushing ahead, it’s the slow, steady approach that is going to work best. And, it will bring about some annoyance or frustration for sure.

This Moon is calling for balance, for you to make a decision, about how you are going to proceed forward. It’s talking about the biggies in your life. Libra is ruled by Venus, love, money, values, self-respect and relationship, the other people, this is the theme that will be playing out and something will be illuminated for you to see, it’s showing you something about you, others may be showing or projecting onto you what is inside of you. Saturn is involved, a little testing could be part of this Moon, if you do feel tested, have to face something that the Moon brings up, that something needs to be worked on or looked at, as it’s part of the area of life that needs addressing or getting clarity on.

Sun in Aries, that’s the me, part, identity, individuality, your passion, goals, confidence and courage to be who you are really are, what you are here to do, be. You do need to pull back at times to see yourself clearly, to take you back to the centre of your being, get centred and push-off from that point.

Saturn is excellent at putting on the breaks for you to slow down, Saturn is also excellent at putting roadblocks in your way to make you slow down and even stop if you are getting lost, out of line or just being to eager to run forward. Take whatever is slowing you down as a blessing at this point.

Venus who rules this Moon did meet up with Uranus, new, exciting, in the Venus themes, it may have sparked you up, rattled you for more to come. But now you feel frustrated because you tried to get out of the comfort zone, or (thought that you should get out) which is a good thing and you will, but not quite yet. Or not in the way you thought you should. Saturn says.

Sun conjunct Mercury Rx you have a few things to go over again in your head, about Aries/Mars things, keep it real about who you are and what you want. Re-access – process, before moving forward.

There again it’s going slow and finding your centre spot, breathe into this and find some stillness and peace, stick with the truth of where you are going and who you really are in regards to others and you. It’s time to get real about this.

Sun/Moon trine, North and South Node, past and future, moving from past to future requires you do the work, except the limits or blockages that are in front of you, and pay attention to what you are seeing, hearing and feeling.

Venus does enter Taurus before this Full Moon…..Phew! she says to getting out of Aries and into her home sign of Taurus, she does rule Libra too, Venus themes are strong. Here again it’s the steady and slow approach, she’s building, steady, secure and stability are key to future growth in areas of love, money, self-worth.

At the end of the day it’s all about how YOU feel about yourself, you are given the opportunity to look and see how that is going. It’s hard, frustrating and difficult and you will be pissed off, there is no doubt about that.

Saturn says “Hang in there don’t give yourself to much of a hard time, just go slow and steady and do the bloody work”

 

Full Moon in Virgo – 2nd March, 2018!

sad

The full moon in Virgo opposite the Sun in Pisces conjunct Neptune. You find the Moon will illuminate through Virgo’s practical, simple, discerning ways, will bring in the realm of reality, so the Pisces dream/vision, illusion/delusion, clarity/fog may find it gets a reality bite.

You may realize that the dream or illusion you have been in meets up with the truth or reality comes home. What you have to do now is be logical, practical and honest with yourself to keep you going forward with that dream or vision.

Be discerning, sort out what’s really worth keeping or working with and what really needs to go. Virgo brings that dream down to earth and want’s to make it practical, useful and workable, in many ways this is humbling and it touches the heart when you can look at yourself and know the truth about your situation, here is the opportunity to be true and honest, so you can be of service to the world, in ways that allow you to grow, nurture.

This Moon may bust a bubble but that’s OK, let it pop, know that all is not lost, this is a workable energy, just stay grounded, don’t get overly emotional , (I know it’s difficult with this much water in the chart ). Know you can do it by taking a realistic look at what you want and what you are doing and how you are going about doing it.

Take the shine of it and see it all in the light of day, in your day-to-day reality, plus, what  are you really able to do? You will see that it’s still perfect just in different ways, you will find that the process and growth will be so much more rich once you come back to earth and look at it with a clear or new perspective from the place of who you really are, not what you think you are or imagine to be.

Venus and then Mercury (this Full Moon ruler) bump it up with Jupiter, more, to expand, luck, joy and abundance are in a trine aspect, there is more growth and things to come. Whatever it is you are letting go of now may not really be let go of completely, you can blend it all into new ways and into your new being. Mercury and Jupiter, optimistic, thoughts or thinking.

With this Full Moon be honest, real and truthful with yourself. Don’t live in the la la land or the woo woo as it won’t take you anywhere.

Keep it sweet and simple, find the beauty in the everyday things, nurture, love and embrace this quality. The growth, abundance and rewards will come in the sweet little ways.
Tender gently to the seeds and weeds as there is always more to come.

FULL MOON IN CANCER, 2nd Jan, 12:23 pm (aest)

dreamstime_m_31836267-1080x675

Finding some release, relief!
This year starts right off with a super big moon in Cancer, it’s wrapped up in a water trine, emotional and the feels, with Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Scorpio. Mars is action and energy, you may feel revved up, may want to take some action, you are driven by your emotions, Neptune will take some of the heat or edge off Mars influence, Neptune  can bring in the flow, softer, caring, compassionate and openness feel, Neptune will help to dissolve. Be sure you don’t get lost in the emotions, submerge yourself in them, be one with them for to long. Sun is linked to Neptune and Mars this is the way out of the trine otherwise you would have all the emotions without an outlet.

Sun in Capricorn, physical, structure, rules, truth and focus is the way out of the emotional realms or peaks if you do find yourself in one. With this moon you may be feeling it all. Best to ground down, be realistic in your approach and with yourself. Bring structure and form to you day or time, be disciplined.

Cancer/Capricorn axis is safety, security, comforts, internal and external, mother/father. You may be feeling some of these play out or be at the bottom of your emotions. You can see where you are wobbly, not so secure.

Venus and Pluto are on both sides of the Sun all in Capricorn, this brings in some intensity, as you may be longing for a deeper, richer, intense experience, you want to feel the strong connection on much deeper level then you have been. Your soul longs for some truth and depth.

Uranus stations goes direct on the same day as this full moon, another spark to the start of the year. Uranus has been Rx since, Aug, 2017, and gets a going. Uranus “the Great Awakener” chaos and change, excitement, freedom can start to come. New ideas and insight. Pay attention to what is happening now, it will be part of the year and eclipse energy.
Uranus can also be sudden, surprise, shock, quick energy.

Jupiter, Mars and the Nodes are lurking in the background doing more to influence you. Jupiter is moving on from meeting up with the Nodes of fate, looking at the bigger picture before you, and Mars will prompt you or encourage you to take action on that bigger idea or picture. Mars/Nodes will be exact on 3rd Jan.

Full moon the light and dark shadows, illuminations, culmination, rebirth and releases, it’s a heavy way to start the new year off, and whatever emotions bubble up to the surface for you to see, let them come out. The more that’s seen or felt the better off you will be, look at what comes out of the shadow in the moments of illumination. As that right there is your truth. And as you move through 2018 that is the only path to be on.

Moon enters Cancer @6:10:01 pm (aest)

 

Full Moon in Gemini, 4th Dec, 2017!

twins reading

Mercury Rx begins hours before the Full Moon.
Mercury conjunct Saturn.
Sun opposite Moon, both square to Neptune.
Jupiter trines Neptune.
Moon quincunx Jupiter.

Well, there’s a lot going on with this full moon, as I am sure you all know and feel. It’s all a big muddle really, inside and out. But finding your way is a must. Many choices and decisions are going to be made and need to be made, the time now is to work out what all that is about, what do you want and what will you choice? for the next part of your journey, you have been working hard clearing out all year long, here you are at a pivotal point and very close to the end, so whatever is happening now is part of the story of old and new. Over the next few weeks you get the chance to review the story and then go forward after having had time to reflect.

This is the end of a major journey right now, until you reach the end of December and enter January, where you begin again. Best to end on a high note, so when next year comes you are at a place of truth within you, now is the time to be true, honest, clear, and I gotta say with less baggage(very important, you gotta leave that in 2017) fearless, vulnerable, plus have faith particularity in yourself.

This is all about communication, Mercury rules Gemini. Gemini/Sagittarius axis is about information/learning and knowledge/wisdom/experience. Light is shining on the mind, thoughts, ideas, what you need to know, what you know. Pay attention to words, either written or spoken. You’re seeking the truth here with Sun in Sagittarius.

With Saturn involved and he’s a big player, getting ready to leave Sag and enter Capricorn, on the 19-20th of Dec, he has been giving us lesson, upon lesson, deleting and working us through our stuff and karma, to restructure us into our truth, for you to be honest, work with integrity, to grow up, be responsible and own your stuff. You know what you have had to do, let’s hope you have done it. Saturn does reward for the job/work done. And when he moves into Capricorn you will see where you are at on the karmic scale, rewards or none?

So, it’s very important with all of the information/communication that will be floating around to be honest and true in all that you do.
Neptune can spin both ways here, can bring in the confusion, uncertainty, illusion, are you kidding yourself? you may not know what is true and what is not, listening, speaking with clarity, honesty and an openness is the best approach, and ask question if your are not sure. Neptune will help dissolve any barriers, so you can do this with faith and trust in the process.

Adjustments may be made, being flexible, and stay grounded, have a daily practical routine for the next few weeks to get yourself steady and most of all…… slow down, Mercury is Rx remember, you are being asked to go over, reflect and review.
