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. 


2019 is front loaded! Mars is freshly fired up in Aries. There are battles to be fought and wars to wager, this regarding our personal and individual lives, as well as at the world at large (ethical, moral, social, political, economic, geophysical/survival of the planet). Through the middle of February, Mars will keep on the fast and ready trigger. Mars in Aries trigger dates: January 8, 21, 25; February 1, 12)

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! 


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.

The synchronization between the arrival of revolutionary Uranus into Taurus for the first time since 1934 plus Mars into Aquarius on May 16th triggered an unprecedented new era in our collective evolutionary process. Sky God Uranus is famous for his maverick rule breaking eccentricities

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. Astrologically aligned in the signs Leo and Aquarius, this eclipse encourages an in depth exploration of both heart AND mind. The first of this unusual eclipse series began with a karmic gate opening
