Opposite Mars Rx in Aries
Venus in Virgo (rules Libra) opposite Neptune Rx in Pisces
North and South Node play out karmic contracts
New Moon squares the big 3 in Capricorn and opposite Mars Rx in Aries, a new beginning or intention in the relationship/partnership area may start with some tension, pressure or crisis.
Libra is finding balance, solutions and being diplomatic about it. It’s also about your relationships, personal or business, plus the one you have with yourself. With Mars Rx in the mix, find your balance and equilibrium, still remembering everyone’s to, but without losing you, your authentic self, wants and needs.
Capricorn is building for the realistic long term, responsibilities, commitments to, who and what, still remembering to not lose sight of you and what you want. Still limits may apply, as you work it out.
Venus in Virgo, how is, this all going to work out, opposite Neptune you may lack faith, trust or may feel disillusioned by it all. Stay focused, work with reality, details, what’s in front of you and keep it simple. Solutions will come when Venus trines Jupiter (19th) or it will get better. Connecting with Jupiter, what you want may expand or grow, unlimited expression may be felt.
Mercury Rx in Scorpio opposite Uranus Rx in Taurus is playing out in the background, freedom from a fear or an emotionally tense place around something you want. They have a story going on 3 meetups are happening.
New Moon, Mars Rx and Venus connect the North (future Gemini) and South (past Sagittarius) Node, soul stories/contracts or soul mates those destined relationships, pay attention to who you’re focused on during his time and what or who shows up.
Don’t go backwards, do old habits/beliefs or reactions, the new path or information will lead the way.
The build up is strong, emotions run deep, but slowly freedom will come.
And as always go check out you own personal birth chart to see in what area of life this is playing out.
This New Moon(15 deg of Sagittarius) @ 5:20 pm squares a Mars/Neptune conjunction in Pisces.
Sagittarius: (religion, faith, belief, journey)
Pisces: (spirituality, trust, ideal, dreams)
New Moon in Sagittarius – abundance, prosperity, fun, adventure, travel, stimulation. Some may be seeking more knowledge, wisdom, understanding and meaning to your life and this will prompt you to expand, go on a journey to new places and horizons.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is backing up the New Moon it’s ready to go, to expand, a big push energy, bold and enthusiastic. Mars conjunct Neptune is a new beginnings, a new dream or vision, the seeking of something more, taking you to a higher place/ground.
The square to Mars/Neptune in Pisces, brings in some tension or pressure to act, to get out from under it, you can feel irritated and restless, channel this energy into something positive to help you work it off or get you out of it. The square aspect between Sagittarius and Pisces the action or vision is lost.
The arrow shoots out, you just don’t know where it is or where it will land.
The elusiveness of Pisces can weaken the energy behind the action, also makes it difficult to control the outcome, a little faith and fate may be working and needed, plus being open minded, flexible and patient.
Sagittarius side is high energy, Pisces side is less so, this may mean that the dream, vision or goal(ultimate goal) has not really formulated yet(timing), either in your mind or heart and it’s not quite ready to come to full form or be seen. Keep paying attention, you will see or know it soon, that’s when to shoot or Go. (probably not until the new year).
Feels like intentions setting of: waiting for the instinctual, natural, raw, response, knowing when to Go (you’re in the ready, again timing).
Don’t let illusions, delusions, fears or false starts block you from achieving.
There’s a lot of water in the chart and planets in mutable signs, nothing is fixed to make it stick.
Mercury went Direct a few hours before this New Moon, information is still coming in.
Chiron goes Direct on the 9th, more healing to be done, wrap this up first.
Keep the faith and trust it! Which is what both these signs are about.
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.
Mars the planet of action has been Rx since 26th of June.
On the 27th this planet of action is going Direct, being in Capricorn a more serious, goal and focused sign he can take you forward, this time you find that the goal or future plans that you tried to take, have a better chance of happening, as the earth sign is about manifestation.
With his entering back into the sign of the Goat, he needed to get a better grip or secure footing for the road or purpose ahead.
Mars – planet of action, passion and desire.
Rules Aries – is cardinal fire.
Help you to get what you want through action, being in Capricorn, you gotta work to get it.
Mars is strong in Capricorn.
Mars in Aquarius on June 8th makes the first of three conjunctions to the South Node. Why 3? Mars is going Rx.
When Mars meets the South Node a change in direction. Leaving the old, attempts or taking action to free yourself from ties of the past, you let go. Mars in Aquarius is liberation, freedom, independence and the future. It is also a good time to release any old residue of past emotions, like anger or resentment you have to past relationships or situations that you have had some hurts or trauma with.
Mars the planet of action, direction, initiative/aggression or anger goes Rx, this is where you do the re-do, you might have to wait, put a few things on hold, progress slows down. Take the time to reassess your projects, your approach to getting what you want. Mars is the direct approach, but in Rx times it’s more introspective/internalized energy, you may not be as quick or spontaneous when taking action. You find that your instinct can be slightly off, which is why you think more/before than act. This Rx period may involve the direction you’re taking or wanting to take, future direction or goals.
Another good thing to do with Mars Rx, is to understand why you do the things you do or the action you take and the way you take it. Understand your impulses, your desire nature.
Being in fixed sign of Aquarius, the desire to break away or free yourself is strong, you can push through the waiting period or delays, hang tight particularly if you really, really want the future you’re planning on. If not so stubborn or fixed on the future plan, allow this time to be flexible and open to see what else pops up or come your way.
Mars goes back into Capricorn during the Rx, needing to reflect or re-group on the plans or goals. Capricorn, cardinal earth, rules, tradition, structure, old ways, what is or was the original plan or blueprint, you may also find that work needs to be done. It’s not starting again, like all Rx’s it’s slowing down, going over, reviewing. Something of the old and new may need to come together for the future projects. Rx phrase indicates that the process may slow down.
Watch out for emotions being bottled up, find a release for this pressure, Mars is a high, outward vibe and does not like being slowed or shut down. Frustration and impatience can happen.
Mars joins, Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter all in Rx. This also slows many situations down.
Dates for Mars conjunct South Node – 20 July, Rx + 26 Sep – direct.
Mars retrograde from June 26th – August 27th.
Mars Retrograde in Aquarius from June 26-August 12 and Capricorn from August 12-27.
Mars enters its retrograde zone on May 12th, 2018, @ 28° Capricorn
Mars retrograde on June 26th, 2018, @ 9° Aquarius Rx
Mars direct on August 27th, 2018, @ 28° Capricorn
Mars leaves retrograde zone, October 8th, 2018 @ 9° Aquarius
Taurus – values, money, love, self-esteem, resources. This is a nice little new moon in fixed sign, Taurus, steady, grounded, practical, keeping it clear, calm and simple. Taurus an earth sign is manifesting and building energy. Perfect place to plant the seeds of intention for growth and abundance. But….. hang on, wait a tick, looming in the background is a major change waiting to happen and shake things up even more. So perhaps not so much calm after all.
New Moon trines Pluto Rx in Capricorn + Mars in last degree of Capricorn. Pluto is Rx, going back over old stuff for review and transformation, of course with Pluto’s intense touch. Sun/Moon both connect with Pluto’s regenerative powers for transformation, healing. A renewed sense of self, can shine through. Mars is driving/pushing you forward with Capricorn’s ambitious vibe.
A time to rebirth a new set of values, which are more in alignment with your true nature.
This Moon may start of steady, low impact, then it may all change in unexpected ways, can also speed up, and go in any direction. Trying to control it will be very difficult. Uranus + Mars combo brings in some electric energy, also can bring in the breakdown or breakthrough.
Uranus, thunder God of change, the great awakener, lands with a thud into Taurus, then bangs it up, with a roaring match with Mars now moved into Aquarius. Both planets moving, might make for an angry hot pair.
Uranus entering Taurus 16th @1:16 am, for an 8 years stay. Then Mars enters Aquarius for along stay, goes Rx here, 16th @2:54 pm and squares up to Uranus @5:03 pm.
It is still a New Moon very important to plant that intention, on change and knowing in what direction you do want to eventually go, that will be the backbone of all of this.
As always go check out your birth chart to see how ALL of this will impact you.
Stay steady, be strong, one way or another, change is on the way!
What’s happening with this New Moon, a conjunction to Chiron + squares Mars.
Mars enters Capricorn + Moon enters Aries on early morning, 18th.
The build up to this new moon was rough, tough and emotional, a little internal storm was building, with Mars the warrior and action planet getting ready to move, was bringing some of the rumble.
You may have found the Mars(action, anger)also square Chiron(sensitive, wound, healing) hits a sensitive or sore spot, Mars was perhaps a bit pushy or eager, which then makes you feel vulnerable or weaker, you have over done it, slow down, look at what it’s telling you. You may have been too ready to go for it and the sore spot says, stop, before you hurt yourself more.
This is a Pisces New Moon, (Pisces is the ending, you may find that you are closing up the years story, something may be winding down) it’s not about pushing, it’s flow, pushing or trying hard will only weaken you more. You may also have felt like your were being pummeled by the Mars force from those around you, like the wave’s just kept on coming and crashing down…. force is not the way. It can bring up the victim feeling or put upon feeling and you can drown in that one. So don’t go there!
So what to do? well, see how you are feeling(Pisces, water) what is it that you are doing or trying to do. Stop and find another way. Slow down and breathe. New moon, new intention, but before that, you have to let go, things die off to be reborn again.
With all of the new coming with this Moon, ask yourself some question, “what to do now”, “what is the best way forward”. There is something this week is telling you. View your actions, what are you doing and why, you may get the message through other people and their action they could indicate the way for you. Some poked and some were poked at.
Jupiter Rx in Scorpio connects with Chiron. Jupiter in Scorpio before you can get to the good stuff you have to get into the emotional stuff, face a few fears or two. Jupiter is supporting the healing, wanting to make the move easier, emotions will be deep, they will come up for sure, what message is it telling you? this also makes you vulnerable, do the Rx thing, reflect, re-do, reassess, allow a new perspective to come though, either slow down and stop a moment, or move out of the way and accept, go with the current for a bit longer. Observe and watch to see clearly.
Stay determined, with Mars entering Capricorn(he is strong here) soon after new moon, you feel the energy shift, it’s a go ahead, this is moving forward with sure footing, a keen eye, focusing on that goal no matter what it may be. But while the New Moon is around, go gently, accept, flow, move along with the current and try not to control or push your way.
Yes, it was a poking time and has been for a while, there was a lot of poking going on and on and on and on……. Be aware of what was poked at, that caused pain. You will know what to do, you may know already. Mars in Capricorn is a strong leader and acts with self-confidence and is very sure of the next move.
Moon enters Aries, soon after Mars enters Capricorn, you feel more like your warrior self, you’ve bandaged up the wounds of last week.

If not get to it, New Moon start thinking about what it is you want for the next few years. Venus in Capricorn believes she can achieve and succeed. She likes to keep things real.
Mars lends a hand by taking action, gives you direction, emotionally motivates you to go for it.

Mercury and Chiron are squaring off while all this is happening, thoughts, communication or your mind and how you process/think about things may be causing you problems and pokes the sensitive spot again, so watch out for all Mercury themed things.
