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.
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.
SUN enters AQUARIUS uP in the air we go.
Leaving behind Capricorn rules and stable earthy energy. Sun lightens up in Aquarius, a freshness enters your mind and heart. It may feel a little unsteady and unknown, but that may be actually what you need.
Think about the future path/plan.
There is always a little bit of a weird kink in Aquarius ways, if you find yourself acting out of character or thinking out of the box, feeling like a rebel this could be why, you have found or want some freedom, to be different or just being yourself? Either way, go for it and express yourself, let your individuality shine out.
Reconnect with your true essence, connect with the world, be original, listen to your own mind, dance to your own tune, with the Sun in Aquarius, this is the only way to go.
NEW MOON in CAPRICORN, 17th @12:16 pm (aest)
This moon conjunct VENUS, sextiles MARS, squares URANUS
New Moon in Capricorn, there is work to be done, the climb starts now in building the life you want. It’s important that you have a plan/goal, purpose for all that you are doing, as the work and hard effort will pay off in the long run. Going steadily up the mountain is the story that you are working on for the next few years, Saturn and Pluto in particular will help, support you in this journey. Be ambitious, have a goal, believe that you can succeed in your plan, don’t procrastinate, do not waste this time. As with all Capricorn ways, be realistic, honest, logical, practical, go slow and steady, be sure.
Being close to Venus, it involves love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem, new beginnings in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows what she wants, hopefully you have worked that out too, with all of the Capricorn energy around encouraging you to make some long-term commitments for the building of the new you. 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.
Mars trine Chiron, healing may come about with the action or direction you take. Be caring and compassionate during this time, you may find that Venus themes will be part of the healing process for you, which may have long-term effects.
Uranus squares Moon, brings in a Sparky bold move, might be quick, unexpected ways of getting what you want to the Venus themes, adds a little bit of a surprise to the new moon vibe.
Keep in mind that the eclipses are coming, this brings in a little fate and destiny, keep an open mind, be flexiable.
Plant the seed deep into the earth sign of Capricorn, to give structure and form to your goals/plans, to give you strength and a strong foundation in the physical world.
Manifestation can happen and will happen, be committed, stay focused, keep it real, have faith in the journey.
SUN conjunct PLUTO!
Sun meets up with Pluto, planet of transformation, rebirth and regeneration. Sometimes with Pluto things have to be removed or die off, for true growth to happen and the Sun, your identity, purpose, vitality, will is shining the light on the areas that may need to go. And that’s not easy, never is, but after dealing with Pluto for many, many years, I have learnt that if it has to go for your soul’s growth it really does have to go. Take care and work with compassion/love when dealing with all of the issues that are coming up for you. Moon in Libra while all this is happening, find your center, be balanced, be fair and honest.
There is more to come your way and you need to make the room for this.
VENUS conjunct Pluto/Sun, relationship, money, love, self-care, values, self-esteem will be playing apart in the conjunction between the three. If it does not fit, feel right, make you feel good and true within yourself, this little planetary meet up will help you to start sorting it out. What is not true for you may be sacrificed off, so something else more in alignment with your truth can come in. Pay attention to all that is happening around you right now and as you move towards the New Moon also in Capricorn, 17th @12:16:37 pm.
Death and dying of an old way, transformation can happen, all in Capricorn, building and working on a stronger, stable, secure, more empowered you. And this goes without saying really, if you are not solid, sure within yourself, you can not build on to that ground or place, take away the rubble or foundation that is unsteady, unstable, unsure, before you start to build on solid ground. Capricorn is sure, being a master builder and is all about manifestation, so build strong, have strength within and without. Take this all very serious, Sun and Pluto are the soul calling, in the stable, secure sign of Capricorn he means to get the job done, not the time to mess around, no time for the BS. Be mature, responsible, committed, work from wisdom and truth always. You know the saying the truth will set you free.
Be your truth and be real. What’s false will fall away, and you will see, that’s the Pluto way.
Mars/Jupiter in Scorpio are in harmonies aspect to the hot 3, urging you on, motivating you with deep truth, strong emotions, for rebirth and change. Action, energy, passion and courage, new growth and abundance for more.
Mercury will join the Capricorn party, on 11th, thinking deeper about life, speaking about it, once out, it can manifest.
Venus and Sun meet up again, last time was, March 24-25th 2017 in Aries, Venus was Rx. What was started back then comes to a culmination point, being in Aries you may have started a new phase or beginning of, love, self love, money, relationship, self-esteem and values plus Sun, identity, vitality and purpose. You found faith, strength and courage in Aries.
Now in Capricorn, it’s manifesting or has been, is forming a structure, it’s becoming solid for you, Capricorn can and may bring limits, rules and work to all of these things. It can also bring in stability and longevity to Venus and Sun themes.
They do meet up again 27th Oct, 2018 when Venus is Rx in Scorpio, another layer is added and more to come.
MARS conjunct JUPITER, MERCURY square CHIRON.
A new cycle begins with Mars/Jupiter connecting, you have a spirit, motivation and energy for change, to take action and expand on life. Opportunity and possibilities are here, if so…. act now. It’s happening in the sign of Scorpio, go boldly forward, dig deep, take yourself to new deeper depths of your emotions, commitments. You want some intensity, personal power, intimacy and deeper bonding in your life for some major transformation to take place.
Passions and courage are strong, you have an attitude for change and you feel like you can achieve it.
Just watch out for the rough edge of this, Jupiter urges Mars on, to go big, go hard, you can overdo it and that, takes you to a whole other level of change, which you may not really want to go.
Work with the sextile to the Sun, Venus, Pluto all in Capricorn, have structure, goals, rules, stay grounded and steady in the urge for 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.

NEW MOON in SAGITTARIUS!
Standing at the precipice of change.
Here you are at the last new moon of the year in Sagittarius, and Saturn leads the way or is he just holding up the line. Because once he enters Capricorn some freedom may be felt.
When you plant your seed of new intention, know where you are going, name it. It’s the direct approach that is needed.
Mercury in Rx, slowing things down and hopefully you have slowed down enough also. More information, truth, is coming, needed for the path forward.
Chiron is squaring, brings up some sore spots to heal and work on, you may be feeling it all, frustration, pain, sorrow, tired, lost and confused, completely over it, as it’s been a very difficult time. Put it all behind you and keep yourself together, leave it all at the old door, and keep walking to the future that is calling you. Uranus is in a harmonious aspect loosely and this is a gentle keep going push for the new experience, freedom and liberation that you long for. That is also Sagittarius attitude too, time for the new.
Venus is bringing her beauty, fun, sassy, love vibe, making sure that you lead with your heart, have a set of values to help you along the way.
Keep the Sag moon theme in mind, know where you are going, know where you don’t want to go. This to me is still a very Saturn time. He is still in charge and he will still be a major player for the next 2-½ years. So before you go shooting off your fiery, arrow, give it a destination to land otherwise it may spend a lot of time just flying around and getting nowhere and doing nothing, doing this has no meaning, point or purpose and you just waste a lot of time, so, not Saturn. Saturn has been working hard to give the Sag fire element a framework to work within, it has been contained somewhat, but hopefully you now know how to work and use this to your highest potential, as you get set to build.
Take some time during this new moon to reflect on the lesson that you have gone through over the last 2-3 years, find meaning, knowledge and understanding as to why and what you had to learn or to look at. Hopefully you gained some truth and you know your truth.
Enjoy the vibe of the new moon, the end is near, and the future awaits, so
face the new horizon, look towards the future, and when you get the sign to move, well…… smile, know, aim and go!
SUN trine URANUS, Sun square Chiron.
Sun hits it up with Uranus, shines the light on forward movement, progressive and expressive, to expand your life, new ways, something new.
Chiron may bring up some sore spots, that are being poked, you may feel a little inadequacy, have doubts, but the Uranus connect is helping you along.
Keep going, this is a push to go.
Mercury did have that conversation with Venus earlier today, about money, love, future plans or goals, going over something perhaps. It’s a positive talk, collaborative.
MERCURY conjunct SUN!
This has been building. This is exact tomorrow.
The Sun shines some light and Mercury drops you some messages, insight, answers, information and clarity into something that’s been on going. Mercury is Rx it’s part of the review, going over stuff.
Moon’s in Libra, breathe, balance, and a little sweetness to the day.
SUN trine NORTH NODE!
Life gets on top of you, it’s not much fun, you are trying to understand the meaning and purpose, work it all out, and it can be, one great big s*#t fight. Take this moment to look at this, allow yourself something good, have something to look forward too, get back in touch with you, have faith and trust this will change.
*Moon’s in Leo, (feelings what you need), adds more of this fun, creative, play theme.
*Mars is ready to leave Libra, and dive into Scorpio tomorrow, this does add a touch of frustration and angst to this mix. He is ready for the go moment, no more holding back for him.
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.
