There is an edgy, uneasy feeling to the Full Moon at 25° 36′ Gemini on 17 December 2013, 01:28 AM PST, like being in a room full of people separated off in small groups and all glaring at one another. Normally a Gemini Full Moon is wonderful for social events and exchanging information with all and sundry but not this one, too many elephants in the room.
The planet aspecting the Sagittarius Sun and Gemini Moon is Venus in Capricorn at 28°. It is semi-sextile the Sun and inconjunct the Moon. Venus [...]
Usually a Mars retrograde is no big deal. They occur approximately every two years, last too darn long and frustrate Aries folk no end. The last time Mars was retrograde was the first half of 2012 when Mars was in Virgo. Uranus was in Aries, Jupiter in Taurus, Neptune in early Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn. Other than those times when Mars opposed Neptune, it was a fairly smooth Mars retrograde due to the trines to Jupiter and Pluto. Not the case this time around.
Balance in my life is very, very hard to come by right now. When Mercury in Scorpio came back to trigger the Uranus-Pluto square this week, my schedule went sideways. My Aries hubby’s truck needed to go to the shop to be worked on and I’ve been shuttling him back and forth. What was supposed to be simple maintenance turned out not to be. On top of that we are doing a very early gift exchange with family on the weekend! So the next few days are going to [...]
Big noise this week is about the Sun leaving the deep, intense waters of Scorpio and bursting out into the wide open spaces of Sagittarius. I find this transition one of the most dramatic the Sun makes. It always feels like I’ve escaped one more time . . . though from what I’m not entirely sure because I do like Scorpio.
The last days the Sun is in Scorpio will see Mars in Virgo sextile Jupiter in Cancer. This is a quietly upbeat sextile combining Virgo efficiency [...]
Anyone expecting drama and excitement on this Full Moon at 25° 26′ Taurus may be in for a letdown. Taurus prefers to keep drama to a minimum and with only one planet in fire and none in air, the status quo will prevail. A conjunction between the rulers of the Scorpio Sun and Taurus Moon, Pluto and Venus, in conventional Capricorn confirms this.
Any time Venus conjoins Pluto, control issues surface and jealousy can rear its ugly head. Since Capricorn leans towards being controlling in their relationships already and [...]
