Mars likes to lead the way – he rules the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, after all. And after a very busy time in his home sign that included a dynamic meeting with Uranus at 29 degrees, he strides into Taurus on 14 February 2019. Mars in Taurus is sensual, practical, and persistent – sometimes persistent to the point of stubbornness. He gets us to focus on the material world, and can encourage us to be too rapacious in our enjoyment of it – he’s no environmentalist.
Elemental New Year, Feb 4th
with a New Aquarius Moon,
Time to now to wave goodbye the year of the loyal Earth Dog, not be seen again for another 60 years. And ‘Hello’ to the New Year of the productive Yellow Earth Boar 4-5th February, and the start of a year that highlights steadfast patience, fertility, and the potential for great tranquillity.
For several years, Little Spirit had tirelessly focused his attention on what he would like to do if he was ‘free’ to ‘do’ anything he chose, just as he had been instructed by his teachers and by many a successful self-help guru. And yet he was sterilized by anxiety, he could hardly feel himself anymore.
Culminating with grand celestial titles that make it a class act Full Moon, this first Full Moon of 2019 is also first in a series of three Full Supermoons, where the ‘Supermoon’ closest to the Earth can even look bigger than normal (though Feb’s Full Moon is closer still); furthermore, this Full Moon is a Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse!
Emotions run deep during eclipses; everything could seem extra buzzy. With Earth’s orbit directly crossing between Sun and Moon, Earth blocks the Moon reflecting Sol’s Light. Instead, for one hour and one minute of totality, ‘Earthshine’ creates coppery-rust-red Moonlight for those in the America’s with a clear sky.
he climb to this place, akin to Frodo Baggins and Sam Gamgee’s assault of Mount Doom in Mordor, has been monumental. After much labouring, ascending many a treacherous track, having explored too many cul de sacs and having had to ford cascading rivers, her legs ached, her chest heaved and her brow glistened, she finally stood before the heavily inscribed oak door
As the New Year begins, Mars strides into his home sign of Aries, adding fuel to the fires that will be burning through the beginning of 2019. Mars often acts as a trigger for other aspects in the sky, and especially so when he’s acting freely in the sign of the ram. This year, there’s a lot of celestial activity for the Cosmic Warrior to ignite
The Solstice Full Moon in Cancer tenders family gatherings in a cosy Christmas hideaway, somewhere with people you feel relaxed and safe enough to drop your guard to scintillate and shine. As the Full Moon rises, the season’s also change into winter in the north, summer in the south. And the Solstice Sun now comes to a wondrous ‘stand still’ for three days rising and setting in the same place before again shifting emphasis of light, for nights to become shorter in the north, longer in the south. So we, too, tend to wind down for a few days to catch up with thoughts and loved ones, before light returns (in the north) Dec 24th-25th.
Freedom loving hippie bandana optional as now is the time to think BIG, count blessings, and remain optimistic! Because the naturally happy-go-lucky Sagittarian Sun is conjunct its ruling planet, Jupiter, over this multifaceted Full Gemini Moon; and the cheerful, open-hearted Jupiter doubles-up any feel-good factor. Whatever this Full Moon brings, it could be way more than most of us imagine – or bargained for!
After seven months in airy Aquarius, Mars dives into the Piscean waters on 15 November. He swims towards the end of the zodiac as we wade towards the end of the year.
A dual sign that encompasses both yin and yang, Pisces often signals extremes. Known for its spiritual side, Pisces can also be excessively materialistic. Recognized as sensitive and compassionate, Pisces can also be ruthless and uncompromising.
