Grand Crosses are mighty powerful at the best of times, let alone one that involves Venus Retrograde (Rx) with the secretive Scorpio, conjunct Spirit Sun, which are thus both opposite an exalted Taurus Full Moon, next to an open-minded astral wild-child, Uranus. Hopefully Luna’s elevated Taurean influence, as the Moon in the sign of the Bull is the best possible place to be, is to slow-down, smooth and temper the zappy and jagged Uranian pace. These four planets then form a tight Square to form the Cross with fellow Fixed signs, Leo and Aquarius, along the karmic nodal axis, pulling memories from the collective past, and thrusting them into the creative personal play pen.

This Full Moon at Equinox, when we experience equal day – equal night around the globe, naturally ramps-up the electromagnetism between Sun-Moon and Earth. Such an intense energy exchange can also escalate our own personal magnetism. Indeed, our ability to magnetise in relationship is about to get a mega-boost when the alluring Love Goddess, Venus, goes retrograde in Scorpio October 6th. But that’s another love story, saved for later tales of 40 days and 40 nights.

Whenever the Sun is in Virgo there’s an inclination to strive for perfection. The perfect dream, partner, poem, job, school, or home, the Virgo Goddess (within) urges everyone to be the best they can by remaining informed, aware, and wholeheartedly practical. In a world of disarray, Virgo so often sets about helping and serving others to realise a healthy purity in mind,

A destiny-fulfilling, hot and passionate, fiery Full Blood Moon is a Total Lunar Eclipse on Friday, 27th July 2018, the longest eclipse of the century and the second in a rare series of three eclipses.

The first of this unusual eclipse series began with a karmic gate opening

As the season turns with this Solstice Honey Full Moon, cast your mind back to those NY resolutions you made to yourself? With the six-month marker you thought you would use to measure to see how you were doing? Well. Here we are. And reassessing the important things in life is most timely, if not a necessity.
Be it home, career, or the relationship and respect we have for (our own personal, family) authority, this Full June Moon

Whenever the Full Moon is in fiery Sagittarius – as it is at 8°10’ Sagittarius, Tuesday 29th May @14:19, adventure inspires and exploration beckons. Travel is therefore nicely starred. So the temptation is to now saddle-up while the Moon is in the sign of the Centaur, and leave troubles behind without a care in the world and gallop off into the far-horizon, John Wayne style : casual, relaxed and brave *.

Reflecting the light of the realistic Taurean Sun, events and situations surrounding this Sunday night’s Full Scorpio Moon have the potential to become like a celestial mirror, revealing a great deal about ourselves – and all our wants and desires, especially in relation to others – and the drama that entails. Whether we are dealing with career, home or kids, looks or lifestyle, certain things may seem rock solid when seeking stability such as money, bricks and mortar, but how wisely we share the parts of life we truly value will also show how much we understand the material world is only relative when it comes to life’s greater prize, that of fulfilling and close, trusted relations. 

Timing this Full Moon closest to the Spring/Autumn Equinox (depending upon which hemisphere you are) with Universal Time, @12:36UT Saturday 31st March April 1st, this Full ‘Peace & Love’ Libra Moon becomes a rare second Blue Moon of the year, suggesting 2018 is shaping up to be rather unusual, in as much as a Blue Moon usually occurs every 2-3 years. And to have two Blue Moons in the same year is exceptional: with two Full Moon’s in January and again two in March.
