September Full Moon in Aries: Fire’s Edge

September Full Moon in Aries: Fire’s Edge

Full moon in feisty Aries (September 24, 2018, 9:52pm CST) faces off with sun in Libra. Restless edginess punctures the atmosphere. The instinct to sprint ahead impulsively at one’s own whim is tempered by considering others and reigned in as we are asked to acknowledge our limitations. Conflicting motivations push us into action!

Sun and Mercury in Libra is social and ready to relate, ignited by the spark of moon in Aries. A “you versus me” stand off is possible, and taking personal responsibility helps to navigate conflict.

Venus plays rough in her shadow territory, deriving pleasure from the fight. The wheels are greased and primed to go backward for her. The stage is being set for bad girl ethics to take place, but the curtain has not yet been drawn for the debut. A switch in the social atmosphere is coming soon…

Being active and on the move facilitates that pioneering new project that is ripe to take off running now!

September New Moon in Virgo: Getting Unstuck

September New Moon in Virgo: Getting Unstuck

A new moon in Virgo (September 9, 2018, 1:01pm CST) gives perspective about what details need to be organized and ordered so that a creative vision may come to fruition. Neptune in Pisces opposing the new moon makes it a slippery one. Feeling spacey and tapping into other realms? Etherealness counterbalances the urge to compartmentalize. As you set new moon intentions, let your imagination be limitless, for there is no end or beginning with Neptune.

Spunk and sauciness color Venus’s recent entrance into Scorpio, opposite rebellious Uranus. It’s giving the middle finger to that which constrains you, tapping into some bad girl ethics which will intensify later in the autumn! Mars and Saturn in direct motion help us to breathe a sigh of relief when that which was stuck is shaken loose to move forward!

Full Moon in Pisces: Cooling Down the Fires

Full Moon in Pisces: Cooling Down the Fires

The cosmos cools down into the earth element, as the last days of summer are relished with the sweet Pisces full moon opposing sun in precise Virgo on August 26. A grand earth trine forms a kite with the Pisces moon, yielding a rich time to tune into imaginative powers and plan to manifest long lost dreams. The Pisces moon is quite the contradiction to the tone earlier in the summer.

Mercury retrograded in Leo from July 26-August 19, coupled with a volcanic Uranus-Mars square and three eclipses. These ingredients represented a dichotomy of forces, holding still and running in place while imploding and exploding. This blast of fire and volatility set off by the eclipses July 27 and August 11 burned away the inessentials until a pure essence revealed itself, as in the alchemical process of calcination. It is, in essence, a purification with fire.

Jupiter nears the end of its dance in Scorpio, squaring off with Mercury in Leo and permeating the atmosphere with a golden decadence, though excessiveness could be a side effect. The tide turns poignantly August 28 when Mars goes direct in Capricorn, timing closely with the full moon August 26. The summer was flavored with complexity, and when both Mercury and Mars are direct, the messages harvested from this summer are ready for translation to yield practical, concrete solutions.
