The above title is for the initial impression of a lively and vital, intrepid Full Aries Moon horoscope – one that constellates so many different areas of life; it comes from a quote written by 19th Century existential philosopher Fredrich Nietzsche, who says in full “You must still have chaos within your soul to give birth to a Dancing Star”. ‘To give birth’ symbolises bringing forth a creative project, heralding joy with a crowning moment announcing the entrance of something or someone dashing, new and exciting.
The Cosmic Warrior strides into Libra on the 4th of October this year, only to be reminded by his host, Venus, to wipe his muddy boots – or better yet leave them at the door. Mars isn’t too happy in rule-oriented and mannered Libra, but he’ll be quite busy over the next six weeks. The theme of this time is overcoming restrictions, as we work through Mars in Libra while Mercury is retrograde (or in his shadow). Little is said or done directly, and we could feel that backroom deals are going on out of sight, or that we’re mired in bureaucracy.
Have you felt stalled, stuck, or stymied over the past few months? That is about to change. Saturn in Capricorn has recently ended retrograde and Pluto in Capricorn will do the same just before midnight (PDT) on October 2. Time and reality’s dictates hit the forward march, now heeding a more specific drumbeat. Both transits are hard at work on the completion of lengthy chapter while also actively in script development for the next storyline.
We have also been under the influence of Jupiter’s square to Neptune, a transit that has been in effect since the start of the year. Jupiter/Neptune has kept the potential and the uncertainty well afloat.
As the Lights of our Solar System unite on Saturday the 28th September in the tropical sign of Cardinal Air, or Libra, in quincunx to Uranus, you are given the opportunity to observe how deeply authentic your choices have been of late. The existence of Cardinal Air within you means that you have the ability to speak forth and to breathe your mind into the world. Within this dimension of your experience of life
Events and situations over this weekend’s Full Pisces Moon could stimulate the imagination to the max, culminating either on Friday 13th – (whohoo!) or Saturday (14th), depending upon where you are in the world. Accenting a period in which we can consciously and actively create marvels and miracles, at the same time discover what we need to keep our feet on the ground
“The Great Spirit is in all things. He is in the air we breathe. The Great Spirit is our Father, but the Earth is our Mother. She nourishes us. That which we put into the ground she returns to us.”

With Regulus now in Tropical Virgo, it seems so appropriate and timely as we consider a world ruled by powerful elites and societies ruled by money and power. Now we have Regulus in the sign of service, resourcefulness, technology, skill and duty, as we consider waste, global resources, efficiency and how to get things working better. This shift seems timely to say the least. We are all called to a service of some kind, helping to shape a better world.
Leo is a Fire sign ruled by the Sun and Virgo an Earth sign ruled by Mercury. The shift from one to the other brings with it a new focus, a new energy.
After an energized march through Leo, Mars tiptoes into Virgo on the 18th of August. The planet that rules warriors and athletes is a little uncomfortable in the sign of the virgin: will he work to despoil the sign, or channel his energy into constructive service?Probably a little of both. Mars in Virgo can amp up issues over genetically modified food (or the food supply in general), healthcare, and the environment. We should remember that Mars can play on both sides of any of these issues, lending a fighting spirit to organic farmers but also to Monsanto.
Heart Fire & the Spirit of LOVEღFull Moon 22°24’ Aquarius 15th August 12:29 UT Passion and playfulness easily reach fever pitch when planets traverse the zodiacal sign of the theatrical and artistic Lion – just as the personal planets are presently doing. With a hot and fiery Leo Sun, Venus, Mercury, influential asteroid Juno, AND Mars, now upping daily drama all-the-while exuding a fierce inspiration that can also inspire joyful action, a warm heart and affectionate relations; as Leo ignites the creative spark within to connect with one’s inner child (as well as with children) for fun-packed activities, so talents and gifts can be explored and expressed. Essentially, making light of life and being with loved ones and friends and gathering under decidedly quirky Aquarian Full Moon beams (and shooting stars if you’re lucky) could be an extremely satisfying and entertaining cosmic order.
Saturn represents the view from the graveyard, and when Saturn, Mars and Pluto meet in Capricorn in 2020, it is time to ‘bring up the bodies’. We find ourselves in a time of disclosure and revelation, take a deep breath, the good news is, this is when collective awareness can begin to transform itself into consciousness.
