This is one of the most magical, powerful lunations of the year in my opinion and at 16° 01′ Scorpio on 5 May 2012, 08:35 PM PDT this Full Moon is no exception. Even though Earth always conjoins the Moon when it is full, if Earth is the ruler of Taurus it makes this a very special lunation indeed.
There is nothing ephemeral about the Full Moon in Scorpio. It is very real, passionate and deeply involved with life in the most essential ways – birth, death and regeneration. The old [...]
I was going to write a lighthearted article about Taurus and gardening but instead I find myself writing about Pluto once more probably due to Mercury squaring Pluto this morning and this week’s Grand Trine with Pluto in Capricorn, Mars in Virgo and the Sun in Taurus.
That is one sweet Grand Trine in earth! It demonstrates all the wonderful possibilities of the three earth signs working together. Taurus is naturally good at being productive; Virgo acts as both quality control and the middle man with Capricorn overseeing the whole operation. Whilst this may [...]
What’s not to like about this New Moon at 02° 22′ Aries, March 22, 2012 07:37 AM PDT? It signals the true beginning of the astrological New Year and conjoins an extremely energizing Uranus in Aries. However, if you go dashing off full speed ahead you could end falling flat on your face even with the empowering Grand Trine in earth.
The driving force of the Aries stellium (Sun, Moon, Mercury and Uranus) yearns for total freedom and it isn’t going to get it – too many obstacles and blockages to get around. [...]
If you have planets or Angles in early cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn), you will probably be driven by Mercury stationing and essentially conjunct Uranus in Aries the entire week. I’m sure this will cause plenty of restless activity and sudden shifts in direction but I’m also doubtful how much will have been accomplished by the time the dust settles. If you can, grab the best of the ideas flashing by and make notes to go back over later.
For those with earth sign (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) dominated charts, a whole [...]
Enjoy this kinder, gentler Full Moon at 18° 13″ Virgo on 8 March 2012, 1:39 AM PST with its lovely Grand Trine in earth and divine Venus-Neptune sextile. Earth and water signs dominate with one small but mighty exception . . . a dynamic Mercury-Uranus conjunction in fiery Aries.
Maybe I better start with the whizz bang conjunction in Aries, largely because it IS a Full Moon in Mercury ruled Virgo after all. This aspect is exact on 5 March and will be again on 18 March due to Mercury stationing retrograde on 12 March . . . [...]
