Eos Goddess of the Dawn

May 22 The Leo Moon Meets Eos at her Dawn!

The Leo Moon will greet the asteroid Eos, Goddess of the Dawn between 4 am and 8 am tomorrow morning (AEST), at the time of day when Eos is creating her magic bringing in another new day!

Eos (Dawn) was the daughter of Titan Gods Hyperion (Light), and Theia (Sight), sister to Helios (Chariot of the Sun and Selene (Chariot of the Moon).  Sometimes called Aurora by the Romans, or even Hermera (Day), due to riding her chariot drawn by the horses Lampus and Phaethon to join her brother Helios, she rises over the Eastern sky and transforms night into daylight.

Eos was described by Homer in the Odyssey as “rosy-fingered and saffron-robed”, she came together with Astraios (the East or Dawn Wind) and produced many offspring, The North, South and East Winds, Astraea (Goddess of Virgo and the constellations), Phosphorus and Hesperus (after whom Venus was named, in her role as the Morning and Evening Star) and some say the Cosmos of Stars themselves as they become visible (so are born), as she rises into the day.

Eos had a penchant for bedding handsome young men and there are many stories involving her exploits in this direction. Aphrodite was vexed to find her in Ares bed one day, so cursed her with a constant longing for young mortals who she secretly and shamefacedly began to seduce one after the other. Orion said to be the most handsome youth of all was the first.

Orion had been tricked by the father of the woman he loved (Merope), promised her hand in marriage and thwarted he ended up taking her by force and was blinded by the father Oenopion. He was healed by travelling to the point where Helios rises in the East, and pointing his eye sockets towards the Sun, not only did he regain his sight, but Eos saw him and fell in love, so seduced him away to share her bed in the holy island of Delos. She is said to blush each morning as she rises in memory of this indiscretion!

So you may have very interesting dreams indeed as the Leo Moon fans the flames as dawn breaks tomorrow and celebrates Eos the Goddess of the Dawn!

The Moon will change sign to Virgo at 12.02 pm, just before she reaches the First Quarter point of her cycle at 1.49 pm.  Between 4 pm to 8 pm she will merge energy with the asteroid Medusa, so be careful you don’t lose your head!  Her tale is a story for another day.

May 20 Venus helps to heal our relationships as the Sun moves into Gemini

Venus in Cancer will make exact a square to Chiron in Aries at 6.23 am tomorrow morning May 21 (AEST). You will be forced to pause and take stock, examine and reassess the role that your wounds and issues play in your relationships. This will enable you to question your ability to both give and receive love, so that you are able to deeply trust those you hold love for and gain stronger confidence in yourself in general. Venus will journey on to perfect a “stone in the shoe” quincunx aspect to Mars in Aquarius at 12.05 pm. You will gain clarity around what you really want from your relationship life and what your responsibilities really are to those you love, bringing more joy into your life and allowing you to use your energy more productively. At 12.14 pm the Sun will change sign from Taurus into Gemini, opening up a more social month ahead with many important connections. You will become less safety conscious and fearful for your material security and more curious, seeking new information about the future that lies ahead of you. Meanwhile the Moon in Leo will be merging energy with dwarf planet Ceres from 11 am to 2.30 pm making you more optimistic about the state of Mother Earth and the changes that lie ahead for us all over the next eight years as Uranus moves through the sign of Taurus, changing our outlook on all things material.

May 19 Moon in Leo with Hekate

The archetype of Lilith remains strong this evening as the Moon in Cancer connects with her asteroid from 1.30 pm through to 4 pm, followed by linking up with the third astrological Lilith, the hypothetical point Dark Moon Lilith,  from 10 pm to 3.30 am.  The Moon and Dark Moon Lilith connect on to the asteroids Pele and Kassandra in a stellium, extending the time.  Pele is the Volcano Goddess from the Hawaiian cosmology, which ironically is erupting right now!  Is there something else brewing within the repressed feminine about to blow as well!  Kassandra was the High Priestess from Troy gifted with prophecy by Apollo but then cursed. so no one would believe her when she wouldn’t sleep with him!  Mythology’s version of “Me Too” from back then!  Around the same time Venus will makes exact a sextile to Neptune and Mars a sextile to Chiron.  You may be able to find creative solutions and inspirations to healing your wounds, through your dreams.  At 9.10 am on Sunday morning (AEST) the Moon will return to the sign of Leo and merge energy with the powerful asteroid Hekate until 12 noon.  The Goddess of the Crossroads and Transformation will provide you with exciting ideas for stepping into your truth, as the Moon journeys on to meet her North Node and the asteroid Mnemosyne from 9 pm and 2 am on Monday morning.  Mnemosyne is the goddess charged with keeping the myths alive and inspiring those like myself who keep them alive through the creative arts.  A powerful period  for us all to step closer to our dreams!     Art by Susan Seddon-Boulet

May 18 Black Moon Lilith and Me Too

Black Moon Lilith, Pluto and “Me Too” came together in a triumph for the repressed feminine yesterday, when Sally Capp became the first woman to become Lord Mayor of Melbourne in three decades!

Black Moon Lilith is the archetype of the repressed feminine, the visceral and creative power that frightened the patriarchy and is now fighting back through women speaking their truth.

Late last year shortly after Jupiter moved into Scorpio in October and Mean Black Moon Lilith entered Capricorn, the sign associated with high profile big business, government and institutions, on November 11, the “Me Too” movement came into prominence with the outing of the sexual misconduct of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

This was echoed in Melbourne early this year with allegations of Melbourne Lord Mayor Robert Doyle behaving inappropriately which led to his resignation.

Observing that Black Moon Lilith was due to form a conjunction with Pluto on May 18, I anticipated perhaps someone high up in government or a high profile organisation being outed in a similar manner.  When I added the intuitive asteroids to the picture, it was interesting to note that Prosperina, the Roman version of Persephone, was also conjunct the pair.

When abducted by Hades (Pluto) Persephone was the maiden Kore, he took her down to the Underworld to become his Queen and she was given the name Persephone which means “she who destroys”!

Black Moon Lilith Pluto

Interestingly the asteroid Lilith in Cancer was  forming an opposition to Pluto, Black Moon Lilith and Prosperina at the time they came together.  The asteroid Circe in Libra and dwarf planet Eris formed the other corners of a Cardinal Grand Square.  Circe is the shapeshifting witch from Homer’s Illiad, who delayed Odysseus on her island by turning his crew into pigs, so she could bear his children.  Eris is the Goddess of Disharmony and Strife who caused the Trojan War!

Pluto and Black Moon Lilith last came together at 7 degrees of Sagittarius on 14 August 1999, but the last time they came together in Capricorn would have been 13 July 1770, way before humanity was conscious of them, but in the era when women were being burnt at the stake for being “witches”.

It was a nice surprise to see a strong positive outcome for the feminine and Lilith come out of this astrological event!

May 17 Dream Fantasia

The Moon moved away from the sign of Taurus into Gemini yesterday at 6.43 am (AEST). This morning she was merging energy with the asteroid Nyx, ancient archetype of the dark, night and nothingness, the canvas out of which we create our lives. From 8 am to 12 pm she has an appointment with Pythia, the priestess in Apollo’s Oracle Temples like Delphi, who provided the answer to the questions that were brought, by inhaling gases that rose through cracks in the Earth. Expect to gain access to your own answers through your intuition at this time. From 9 pm this evening until 6 am tomorrow morning, the Moon will pass through a massive stellium consisting of the asteroids Dionysus, Kepler, Isis, Pallas Athena and finally the planet Venus. In Gemini they are connecting you with the right information to commence your journey towards your authentic self. Dionysus, the God of wine, women and song knows how to enjoy himself and let go. Kepler, the father of Harmonic Astrology is adept and finding meaning from the more subtle influences in the Cosmos. Isis has dominion over unconditional love and magic. Pallas Athena teaches you wisdom, how to use your mind with logic and strategy. Finally Venus represents your desire nature what you place value on and become attached to. What a powerful combination of energy to influence your dream time and prepare you for the future!

May 16 Mars Square Uranus

Mars moved into the driving seat on the last day of April, so it is  finally be time to get your show on the road and achieve some traction towards your goals. The Mars and Pluto ruled Scorpio Full Moon on April 30 spotlighted just what needed to be eradicated, leaving your emotional baggage behind. Mars has been naturally directing the planets and points in Aries, as well as squaring them from Capricorn the sign of his exaltation.

At the time of yesterday’s Taurus New Moon, on May 15 (AEST), we had Mars square Uranus from the chaotic last degree of Capricorn and Aries.   Today they both change sign, Uranus to Taurus at 1.16 am and Mars to Aquarius at 2.54 pm, then at 5.03 pm they move into an exact square with each other, which will last with an 8 degree orb, until 9 October 2018!

The pair will return to an exact square with each other on August 2 and September 19 due their respective retrograde cycles. At the time of the Total Lunar Eclipse on July 27, Uranus will be making a tight square to both the Luminaries and the Nodal Axis and Mars will be conjunct the Moon by just over one degree!

Uranus will remain in Taurus until 2026, except for a couple of brief stints at the commencement and end of the period.  This will bring radical and unexpected changes in all the material areas of life, our financial systems, the way we buy and sell goods and services, respect nature and the environment we live in, how we nurture ourselves, express our sensuality and respond to our sexuality, grow our food, provide a liveable community within our cities and the way we value our family structures.  We have already seen the start of this in many areas!

The discovery of Uranus in 1871 coincided with the Industrial revolution as well as the American War of Independence and the French Revolution.  During its last transit through Taurus, from June 1934 to May 1942 the world experienced the Great Depression and World War II.

This was a conservative and materialistic generation where sudden and extreme changes were experienced to finances, possessions, values and security needs.  It awakened resourcefulness, determination and constructive energy, tension around having everything that was needed and responsibilities were sometimes rejected to maintain the material possessions that were felt necessary for survival.

Mars will remain in Aquarius, the sign which has Uranus as its modern ruler, for around three times as long as he usually spends in a sign, due to his stationing retrograde in the sign on June 27. This could make your motivation somewhat erratic, but also inventive and original, wanting to do things your own way and struggling with any authority you come up against. You have the potential to work well in a team or with groups, and will find it easier than usual to align your needs with those of others around you.  Ironically Uranus is in Taurus, in which Mars is least effective or in his Fall, or taking action on change is unavoidable!

Mars square Uranus will make us all impulsive, and restless, actively rebelling to become free of restraint. You will  being challenged to be true to yourself (especially in the early degrees of the fixed signs).   The best approach is to not wait for a crisis to force you into action, but instigate creative change yourself.  You will be tested in your new ways of being, especially by authority figures or close relationships, often from the past.  You will be easily angered, quite explosive, but the challenges will need new solutions.  You will assert your ego in a very individualistic manner especially if you are not conscious of the need to change!

May 15 Taurus New Moon with Mars Opposite Hekate

The Taurus New Moon will fall on May 15, at 9.27 pm in Melbourne (AEST), a mere three and a half hours before Uranus changes sign to Taurus, putting the ball definitely in the court of the sign of the Bull.

The luminaries come together at 24 degrees and 36 minutes of Taurus, so in it’s 25th degree. The Sabian symbol is “A vast public park”, this speaks of the cultivation of natural energies for collective use and recreation, collective enjoyment.

Taurus sustains our basic survival and Uranus moving into the sign suggests a revolution in our material world. Whatever we predict or imagine Uranus always comes up with something unexpected that we haven’t thought of, so be prepared to surrender and adapt to whatever eventuates, not stick with what you feel to be safe and secure.

At the time of the New Moon Mars and Uranus will be squaring each other and the powerful asteroid Hekate will be opposite Mars, in the last 29th degree of the Cardinal signs of Capricorn, Aries and Cancer. This unstable anaretic degree cardinal T-Square will be extremely volatile as the three will all change into their adjacent Fixed sign within 36 hours from Uranus’ initial ingress.

In addition all of the three hold powerful archetypes of change, Mars through dynamic action, Uranus through unexpected and revolutionary upheaval and Hekate through transformational choices with underground undercurrents.

One thing is for sure this New Moon will offer and excellent fulcrum to turn your life around, or have it turned around for you!

With the Sun and Moon in the sign of Taurus, the energy focus is on:
• Creating security and stability, protecting your physical interests
• Practical goals, being logical and methodical, patient and careful
• Working hard, balancing the budget, ensuring a steady income
• Physical comfort, indulging the five senses, sex
• Family and peaceful, harmonious relationships
• Losing weight, embarking on healthy exercise and diets
• Meet single-minded persistent commitments

The area most aligned with the position of the New Moon can be best gleaned from your natal horoscope chart, however if you only know your Sun Sign, then affirmations around the areas indicated on the next page are likely to be the most powerful, but some adjustment may be required to the life areas below:

Taurus New Moon

May 12 Preparation for a New Round of the Zodiac

The Moon has been merging her energy with a stellium or group of asteroids since 2 am this morning (AEST) until 1 pm this afternoon.. These consist of Astraea, Ariadne, Minerva and Hygeia. Astraea was a Goddess of the stars who found mankind too unpleasant to live with and fled to become as one with the constellation of Virgo. Ariadne was abandoned by Theseus, pregnant on an island, after she helped him kill her brother the Minotaur and escape from the labyrinth. Minerva was the Roman Goddess of wisdom and strategy and Hygeia a Goddess of healing through healthy habits. They teach us not to give up when life isn’t working out the way we planned, there is always a solution if we change our tactics and alter our behaviour. The Moon will change sign from Pisces into Aries at 10.40 pm tonight beginning a new round of the Zodiac, taking on board the wisdom learned in the last 28 days to implement throughout the next month. Its a new start. Interestingly the Moon will be connecting with the asteroids for both Artemis and Diana as they form a conjuction and change sign with her from 8 am. Greek and Roman archetypes of a virgin daughter who preferred to hunt in the forest with her pack of dogs, rather than become a wife, they remind us to stay true to ourselves as we enter the new cycle. When the Moon enters Aries she meets up with Chiron the Wounded Healer until 3 am. So our dreams may contain themes reminding us of the wounds we need to attend to and resolve. Don’t forget my Finding Your Life Purpose workshop tomorrow to identify what this means for you!

May 10 Creativity needs to be Expressed!

You could easily exttend yourself today as Venus perfected her awkward quincunx aspect to Jupiter at 4.36 am this morning (AEST). You need to make an adjustment in way you tend to take on responsibilities for those you care about which are really theirs to deal with. Its all about personal boundaries and limits, knowing whats your stuff and what is their’s, sometimes you can be too generous for your own good! From 1 am to 9 am this morning the sensitive Pisces moon was merging energy with the beautiful starry asteroids Asteria and Urania. Asteria who was mother to Hekate, had dominion over the night sky and astrology. Urania, the Muse of astronomy and astrology encouraged others to portray their glory through the creative arts of poetry, theatre and painting. From 6.30 pm to 12 midnight she moves on to connect with Neptune the God of Creativity and Fantasy, along with Sekhmet the lionheaded Egyptian Goddess of Love and War who brings you courage to promote your creative offerings out into the wider community. Its a wonderful day to focus on yourself and expressing your creativity.

May 9 Sun opposes Jupiter

The Sun in Taurus makes exact his opposition to Jupiter in Scorpio at 10.36 am this morning (AEST). Energies are coming to a head, you may be feeling more optimistic and self confident but make sure you don’t take on more than you are capable of accomplishing. You will have the courage to face up to what needs to be done but try to avoid becoming judgemental or self-righteous or overdoing things. Oppositions are about integration, finding the common ground, in this case between what we think we need to feel safe and what we believe is necessary for the wider community. The Moon continues to travel through Aquarius, away from any of the intuitive asteroids encouraging us to keep the bigger, more global picture in mind. At 1.10 pm she will change sign to Pisces and your sensitivity will be heightened, you will be more concerned about helping others than on your own material situation.

    Hey Sara,
    As someone whose natal Sun is conjunct Pandora and the Great Attractor (lol, square Pluto in Virgo exact) it’s cool to read your take on Pandora. Makes me feel better about who I am – she who tends to take the lid off or asks why no one else will confront the goddam elephant in the room. Oh yes, and there was that time when I was 8 when I was in bed, pointed up to the stars through the ope curtains, and told my mum I wanted to go home…but no doubt, that is a Great Attractor rather than a Pandora thing!
    In general, just love your work and look forward to every new Moon Myth post.
