The Month Ahead

Super-Charged Supermoon!
 Total Lunar Eclipse Leo 21st January 2019

/
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)

Soulstice - Full Moon Cancer - 00° 49'

/
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.

Full Moon Gemini - 00°52' - Nov 23rd UT - Thrills and Spills

/
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! 


Full Moon in Taurus 24th October 2018 @ 1°13’

/
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.

Full Moon in Aries 1°59’ ~25th September 2018

/
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.

Perfect Bliss ~ Full Moon 3°12’ Pisces - 26th August 2018

/
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,

With the six-month marker you thought you would use to measure to see how you were doing? Well. Here we are. And reassessing the important things in life is most timely, if not a necessity. Be it home, career, or the relationship and respect we have for (our own personal, family) authority, this Full June Moon

Journey to the Higher Mind - Full Moon in Sagittarius 2018 ~

/
Whenever the Full Moon is in fiery Sagittarius – as it is at 8°10’ Sagittarius, Tuesday 29th May @14:19, adventure inspires and exploration beckons. Travel is therefore nicely starred. So the temptation is to now saddle-up while the Moon is in the sign of the Centaur, and leave troubles behind without a care in the world and gallop off into the far-horizon, John Wayne style : casual, relaxed and brave *.

Immanency Revolution! The New Moon in Taurus: 15th May 2018

/
Further and further away from the Earth we walk, as technology seduces our mind with unlimited access to selfies, reality TV, instant access to the inner twittering of another’s mind and the countless distractions that colonise our increasingly diminishing attention; as mechanisation of food means that we can grow pizza’s on trees; as urbanisation spreads like cancer across the land,

Desire Transmutes - Full Moon Scorpio ~ April 29th UT 2018

/
Reflecting the light of the realistic Taurean Sun, events and situations surrounding this Sunday night’s Full Scorpio Moon have the potential to become like a celestial mirror, revealing a great deal about ourselves – and all our wants and desires, especially in relation to others – and the drama that entails. Whether we are dealing with career, home or kids, looks or lifestyle, certain things may seem rock solid when seeking stability such as money, bricks and mortar, but how wisely we share the parts of life we truly value will also show how much we understand the material world is only relative when it comes to life’s greater prize, that of fulfilling and close, trusted relations. 

Awaken and Unfurl! The New Moon in Aries: 16th April 2018

/
Something feels different about where you are now. You can feel it. Maybe it has to do with your courage being kindled. Maybe it has to do with realising that within you lies a unique identity, something that no one can ever replicate or template. Maybe it has to do with realising that your body, your home, your family of origin, your education, your social background, your religion, your culture or your location does not define who you truly are
