Sun in Virgo, your reality, your daily routine, Moon in magical, mystical, dreamy Pisces, your clearing up, cleansing and releasing the old, it’s time to bring the new in or make room for more. And this big ole moon may just help.
This full moon is trine (easy, harmonious) to Uranus, so the culmination or illumination comes with a touch of surprise/liberation/freedom around habits or something old, this will move you forward in regard to any changes that you have made or want to make. This release will flow and easily take. Feeling stuck leaves.
However, this is floating in the background, a t-square is, Venus squares Mars (what you want and getting it maybe out of whack, incompatible or you may not know what you want, then you don’t know how to get it), Venus opposite Saturn (puts the brakes on or it may come with a heavy commitment, responsibilities or limits) and Mars squares Saturn (frustrations around delays, anger, aggression and more frustration).
It’s still a lovely Full Moon, being in Pisces it may fee sensitive or emotional. Uranus brings something lucky perhaps, the t-square may just dampen the edges a touch. It’s a good moon to remember there is more to you then what is happening right now, allow yourself to dream, reflect on the old so you can let go, embrace the magical and believe that the cosmos has your back.
Like always go check out your personal birth chart to see what area of life this is happening in.
Full Moon happens, 2nd, @3:29 PM
This eclipse in Capricorn is wrapping up a story since 2018 when the Cancer/Capricorn eclipses started. An area of your life has been getting worked on. Dealing with the Can/Cap axis it’s themes are around physical, financial security or work, ambition and emotional security or family, emotional needs and self care.
Saturn Rx rules this Moon in Capricorn. Saturn has just moved back into Capricorn, wrapping up some business or an area of life that’s getting a big restructuring. Saturn is commitment, responsibilities and determination to get the job done. The hard work is worth the climb and with Uranus in a trine you may find that it happens quicker or you have a new sense of freedom and ease then you had before.
Full Moon’s are a culmination and completion point with Eclipses the energy stays around for months. And as you know Eclipses, as some may say is a “wild card” energy or theme and you just don’t know what that may be. As always, go look at your personal birth chart to see the area’s of life it’ been happening in since July 2018.
The May 7th full moon in Scorpio opposite Sun/Mercury in Taurus may illuminate information or what’s on your mind. A full moon is the peak point, culmination, something leaves/ends or stops. You may be emotionally driven to finish something off, with the Moon opposite Sun/Mercury in Taurus its solid/tangible or something you’ve been thinking about or talking about may finally get to a point of finishing.
There’s a nice easy trine to Neptune, if you’ve been feeling blocked or just not been able to, you find that Neptune’s flow will help. Neptune’s influence opens up, flows and releases any emotions that are hidden or stuck, as it’s a Full Moon in Scorpio, some may be lurking about. Taurus, you have what you need to succeed.
Use this Full Moon to gently move you forward, whatever has reached the point of culmination allow it to wrap up and move on. Mercury in Taurus, any information that’s around is based in reality, solid and look at the facts.
As always know where this full moon is happening in Your birth chart for a deeper understanding about what’s happening for you.
This new moon in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius, brings in tension, an edge to the energy, it may involve a new set of rules or responsibilities, feelings of frustration around delays or restriction comes with it. It’s a waiting game while trying to manifest this new start (it’s about the long term changes) under this Taurus new moon be patient, dig in and do what you have to do, be resourceful and use the resource you have while you wait.
Don’t over complicate it, (even though it’s all too complicated), keep it simple as much as you can. It’s all about the waiting and what you do in that time. Do the Taurus thing go slow, be steady and sturdy, eat the food you love, sleep, pamper, nourish and nurture yourself, and while you have the time, go look at what really matters to you, what really do you value(Taurus) in areas of money, love, where you put your thoughts, time and energy. Don’t waste your time or energy on things that know longer bring you joy, value and real meaning to your life. You don’t want to use your future energy up now on things that no longer bring value or joy. Plus what do you want to take into the future with you?
Sun and Moon both meet up with Uranus after the new moon, this can bring in some form of liberation around restriction, a burst of energy or information that lightens things up. It is Uranus so it can be delivered quickly or jarring and maybe a surprise, so just watch out for this. Remember to stay grounded and keep it real.
Saturn rewards all the hard work that you do, but you are going to have to wait for the solid, secure, structure(Taurus) to be put in place. You may find the Taurus season of April-May things solidify. It’s a start, now you patiently wait.
New Moon in Pisces!
In general, new moons are about a beginning of something, this one may involve an ending, putting something to rest, letting go and surrendering. The Sun and Moon are conjunct to Mercury Rx, what have you been thinking about, what’s going on in your head, what are you communicating to yourself about or what’s stuck in your head that you keep going over? The thoughts you’re having may help with the beginning which is also the end. Another way is to be open, receptive and intuitive to help you find the beginning and the end.
Either, get out of your head and go into feeling or get in your head and pay attention to what is going on in there. Listen and feel, will lead to knowing. Keep in mind that this is a Pisces new moon, make sure that it’s all still rooted into reality, don’t go into delusion or illusion, sand castle in the sky mode, hopefully the earth bond energies will keep you grounded.
Mars in Capricorn is harmoniously connecting to this moon, if there’s any action or way to go, Mars helps you by showing you the way or what to do. It may come in a thought, an intuitive feeling, a deep knowing. You may find that this is a way through Moon, that get’s you out of a place, situation, something that’s been hanging around since December. Being a Pisces moon, there may be a surrendering of something, handing it over, relaxing into what is.
Trust in what you feel.
Uranus in Taurus, helping you to go forward into the new future, helping with any changes that you have been going through or that are happening. Both are in earth signs offering support and stability which helps you to build. Which is what we are all doing, building a new identity, life and world. Nice time to leave some things behind.
It’s about the way forward, this new moon is highlighting that you can only go that way, no going back, no matter how much you would like to. Big shifts and changes you have been going through.
The Pisces leads us to surrender to our life now, it’s different, yes, you’ve changed, yes and it’s time to be open and receptive to the new life that is.
Pisces is the end of the road.
Mercury is Rx, so the road my be a meandering and a winding one, so, it might take a while for the momentum to build.
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.
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.
5 of coins – feeling down and out, crossroads, opportunity for change and growth, take care of your self and look after your health if need be. Loss, needing help ask or seek help from others. You have had enough, not sure which way to go.
8 of wands – openings, new, messages that come quickly, swiftly, movement forward, you know which way to go. Expansion.
10 of coins – abundance, wealth, feeling better, safe and secure, Plus in regards to the 5 have a long-term idea or plan what do you want the end result to be?
You have moved on from the 4 of coins where you felt safe and secure even a little powerful, at the 5 you feel the separation with the action you have taken to move on. Wands opens you up, through expansion, messages, things happening quickly for you, time to grow. Success is at hand after all of the hardship, work hard, you start to feel sure once more.

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.
Deck used – Astrology Reading Cards
Uranus has been Rx since 3rd Aug, 2017, now the planet known as the “great awakener” is on the move and move he will. Uranus entered Aries in May 2010, he is moving out of Aries in May 2018 and enters Taurus. Big change into a fixed earth sign. Change, freedom, liberation, ideals, vision and independence are all key words when describing Uranus, he can change your life, it can be chaos. One minute you’re here and then you are way over there.
Uranus would have put you in the land of chaos and havoc. You may have found that it was unexpected, shocking/surprising, in some or all ways. Situations or people may have been the cause of the unexpected changes that were being made. It was all for the greater good of YOU. For you to step up and out of the stagnant place that you had perhaps found yourself in. Not easy though, you would have had to come up with a new vision, idea, a new way of being. Even a whole new you.
Hopefully you have and did let go, went along for the roller coaster ride, you probably in many ways had no choice, as the ground was being ripped right out from under you.
He does a few more miles to go before he gets out of Aries, so for some they may have more Uranus to contend with, there will still be some chaos, change and uncertainty along the way. If you know your chart – from 24 to 29 degrees of the Cardinal signs(Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn) will be feeling this transit most strongly.
With all Uranus things “nothing stays the same”, change is the name of the game.
This weeks Tarot Card is Strength – a major arcana card.
These cards are not talking about everyday stuff it’s bigger soul stuff that you are working on or through this week.
Generally it does mean strength, having the strength to face things, to respond to life, looking fear in the face and going yes, I got this.
Faith, have it, go get yourself some if you lack it, know that you do have this, whatever it is that is coming out or at you this week. Be honest with yourself, take off the mask of fear and move with courage forward in your life. You may be challenged by whatever it is your truly desire. Be vulnerable, show yourself for all of your strengths and weakness. But most of all have faith, trust and courage in yourself.
Aleister Crowley Strength card is called Lust, be passionate, engaged, full of passion and lust for life and what it has to offer you. Let the fires burn within you, to get you excited about you and life.
Really connect with that part of you that is raw, primal, true, embrace it. Let this energy work for you.
