Full Moon Cancer 22°27' Jan 12th - 11:33am UT

/
Like a Mother looks after her child, the Moon at home in Cancer provides a place of protection, a sanctuary from the chaos of fast-changing times, and an anchor in rough emotional seas. Take comfort with this first full Moon of 2017, the Full Cancer Moon, as it stimulates our ability to awaken the Divine Mother (within each of us), to show care and consideration in love, unconditional and pure, for all beings, at home, at work, in partnership and with friends.

Full Moon in Gemini - Reaching the Higher Mind

/
Important characteristics that encourage a healthy mind and happy heart come into celestial focus during this week’s Full Moon, with principles, discipline, and the practice of patience karmically rewarded. Now the Sun in ethical Sagittarius emphasises the need to remain open and flexible, the wise Archer in opposition to the bright Gemini Moon also urges one to heed the call to restrain thoughts, words and deeds which are divisive or harsh, otherwise many previous good actions will be negated.

Full Super Moon in Taurus - 23° Nov 14th UT

/
Always longing for something, we humans brim with earthly desires. You name it: money, food, beauty, buildings, brains, status, wisdom, power or enlightenment, we want it all. Being desirous is our natural state, seemingly, a condition that can propel as easily as repel. Our wants and wishes make things happen; and when things go the way we want we think we’re happy; yet all-too-often and with no particular effort from our side, our desires can also make us miserable, especially if our demands are unfulfilled, or laden with obstacles and frustration. So, how do we deal with desire from the astrological point of view?

Full Moon in Aries- 23°14' 16th Oct

/
In the words of Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher who taught about an ever-changing universe, change is our only constant. As the winds of change now begin to blow into a potential hooley, in the midst of such daily whirls and flow all we really want is to be happy. What stands out in this constant quest for happiness is how important it is for the human spirit to have a sense of autonomy

Full Moon Pisces on the 16th September 19:03 UT

/
he Full MOON closest to the season-changing equinox, when geomagnetic activity is already heightened and Earth’s auroras and magnetic fields are stronger, we are cosmically bound to feel a powerful surge of deep emotions which an eclipse in a water sign arouses; these feelings can illuminate and connect the natural beauty of the heart-mind, as well as bring to light the previously hidden or unconscious.

Full Moon Aquarius on the 18th August (9:26am UT)

/
While this Full Moon eclipse will not turn a romantic copper-coloured red during this month-plus-long eclipse season (give or take a few days), the freedom-loving Full Aquarian Moon reflecting the bright light of the playful Leo Sun stills promises lots of fun and games. With a Full Moon that portends sudden zaps and flashes of inspiration into past-present-future action - especially in regards to one’s own uniqueness and creativity, the gifts one brings to organisations and group situations can enhance the sense of ‘oneness’.

Full Moon Capricorn - Followed by a Moon Shadow

/
The lunation now culminating in a midnight Full Capricorn Moon on the 19th/20th July (22:57 19th UT) began earlier this July, with the still cardinal Cancer Sun and its’ ruler, the Moon, opposite Pluto in Capricorn; Pluto is the tiny outer-planet that packs powerful impact. As a ‘generational’ planet, Pluto’s influence can be extremely far-reaching, working on subtle and atomic, psychic levels, affecting the soul evolution of the masses, especially when accented by the waxing Full Moon, as it is this July, 2016.

Sagittarius Full Moon Meditation

/
The Red planet, conjuncts the White, Full Sagittarius Blue Moon. This seems very patriotic, a subject that Sagittarius rules. From APOLLO the Sun’s perspective, the earth is swallowing /eclipsing Mars the warrior planet. This is a very powerful image of the FEMININE EARTH MOTHER assimilating the warrior God. The old boy’s macho warrior energy is dying and a new softer Masculine is being born. SATURN Retrograde is aligned with ANTARES the Rival of Mars in an isosceles triangle formation in the skies

Full Moon Sagittarius - May 21st UT- Inner Truth-Outer Courage

/
Stirring up courage, passion, and ardour, May’s Full Sagittarian truth-seeking Moon is most dynamic and active. And because the Moon is conjunct Mars, 21st-22nd (depending upon time zone), emotions can also be quick to rise - even though Mars is retrograde and slow. Therein lies the key; if/when dealing with destructive emotions such as anger or frustration, or when moving too fast, slow down, breathe deep;

Full Moon in Libra - Lunar Eclipse - March 23rd

/
Lunar Eclipses can only occur during a Full Moon. Full Moons by their nature bring to the surface some of our deeper unconscious emotions in the manner of the sign the Full Moon is in, (this one is in Libra) and in the arena of our life that it is traveling through in our Birth Chart. However, during a Penumbrial Lunar Eclipse, our human shadow blocks out some of the light from our Solar consciousness which usually fully illuminates and helps us to integrate the surfacing emotions

Full Moon in Virgo 22nd Feb UT 2016

/
Although Virgo is an Earth Sign, it is ruled by Mercury/Hermes who is the god of communication. Hence this Full Moon draws our attention to both mental analysis and practical action. Virgo’s main objective at all times is to be of efficient, effective and useful service. In order to do so, Virgo requires extensive analysis of the different options and possibilities that are available. Its strength is its ability to effectively dissect and synthesise large amounts of information
