Light a fire with the Sagittarius New Moon November 22!

Artemis

Every New Moon brings a new beginning with the new lunar cycle.  The Sun and the Moon come together in an alchemical conjunctio – the reunification of the masculine conscious force (Sun) with the instinctive lunar feminine (Moon).  When this new beginning occurs in Sagittarius, the sign of adventure and ideas and meaning and just plain fun, we have the opportunity to bring in more zest and gusto.  Suddenly we are aware of unlimited possibilities, and our view across the future is longer and more encouraging. The symbolism of the New […]

Samhain Full Moon in Taurus, November 6th 2014

To_be_a_witch_by_Dandelion_lion

Although the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain is celebrated for convenience on October 31st to coincide with Hallowe’en or All Hallows Eve, it actually occurs at the midpoint between the Fall Equinox and the Winter Solstice.  This is also the midpoint of Scorpio, the dark season where the veils between the world begin to thin and it becomes easier to cross between them. This year the Taurus Full Moon falls within one degree of the Samhain point – the Sun at 15 degrees Scorpio.  The power of this lunar opening at […]

Solar Eclipse at the New Moon October 23 2014

Although the New Moon tomorrow is an eclipse at the first degree of Scorpio, there is still an intensely Libran influence during this last day leading into the eclipse.  Four planets (including the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon)  are in Libra, and the Sun is aligned with Venus, Libra’s ruler.  Libra and Venus possess a strong but delicate energy – inspiring relationship and harmony, yet requiring a peace and beauty. This sensitivity will have to give way to tougher stuff when the Moon and Sun conjoin at the New Moon in the more […]

The sparkling light of the Aquarius Super Moon, August 10 2014

The Moon is full in Aquarius on August 10th – the second Supermoon (TM Richard Nolle) of the summer.  When the Full Moon is a Supermoon it appears larger than usual in the sky and its influence is more powerful.  Full Moons represent the culmination of our emotional awareness – the peak of insight and intuition and an opening of the heart. Aquarius is known as the Water Bearer – while Aquarius is an air sign and tends to be rather uncomfortable in the realm of feelings, it acts as […]

Magic and Happiness catch fire at the Leo New Moon

 I found this image on a free wallpaper site.  If this is your art, please be sure to let me know. The Moon is new in Leo on the 26th of July, fusing the Sun and the Moon in the sign that opens the heart and encourages us to find our own best expression.  Consciousness becomes alive under the sign of Leo, and our sense of self is highlighted and encouraged to flower. Both the Sun and Moon align with Leo at this time, and Jupiter has newly entered Leo. […]

First of three Supermoons: July 12 2014

Supermoon

The first of the summer Supermoons will take place on July 12th.  The term Supermoon was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle to describe the Moon that when full (i.e., opposite the Sun) is at its perigee or closest point to the earth. When a Supermoon occurs at a Full Moon the effect of the lunation is amplified.  Everyone responds differently to Full Moons.  Some become more emotional.  Some become more anxious.  Some (like me!) have trouble sleeping.  Some have no experience of a Full Moon at all. Much of your experience […]

This New Moon in Cancer, June 2014

New Moon Cancer

The New Moon in Cancer takes place at 4:08 am on June 27th – the beginning of a new lunar cycle that takes us into a journey of exploration into the ways in which we connect with the people around us. The sign Cancer brings us in touch with our family roots, but “family” can be defined in many different ways.  Most narrowly, “family” is defined as a group of related individuals living in a household together.  But family is widely defined as “a group of people sharing a common […]

Curiosity and knowledge: Keys to the Sagittarius Full Moon, June 2014

Full Moon

The Sagittarius Full Moon takes place just after midnight on June 13th Eastern time.  The Moon in Sagittarius encourages us to expand our visions – to aim higher and gain greater understanding.  In Sagittarius we refuse to take no for an answer – suddenly we know that we can do and be more than we ever thought possible before. Like all Full Moons, the Sagittarius Moon will be exactly opposite the Sun in Gemini.   Gemini wants to embrace the entire world – Sagittarius chooses instead to learn and grow […]

Gemini New Moon, May 28 2014

new

The New Moon in Gemini occurs on May 28th. Because the New Moon is the beginning of a new lunar cycle, there is a fresh new energy that is available to us at the New Moon.  It’s an opportunity to make a clean start and begin anew. Gemini is the sign of the twins, and often it manifests as two faces of the same person which never have an opportunity to meet.  We experience this internally as duality – a part of us seeks one experience and another part of […]

Mars and the Scorpio Full Moon

Now that the Grand Cross is beginning to unwind there is a bit more movement and a sense of increased possibilities rather than that feeling of being stuck in crisis that so many of us have had over the past few months. Mars is at a virtual standstill, so if it (at 9-10 degrees Libra) is hitting a sensitive point in your chart or the charts of those around you, there could still be some eruptions as frustrations build to a peak and find release. Mars is the traditional ruler […]
