Scorpio Full Moon ~ May 18th Enlightened Purge

If challenging relationship or family issues have been in the forefront for you this year, the full moon on Saturday May 18th may bring a welcome surprise. With the full moon in Scorpio early this evening, it is imperative that you get deeply in touch with your core thoughts and feelings. Fears are brought up so you can examine them and utilize your analyses to find the perfect time to release negative attachments. Compulsive patterns of thought and emotion should be reflected upon and not reacted to impulsively. The self-protective Taurus new moon is being reflected onto the full moon, so any close person or current situation that doesn’t fulfill your sense of security and grounding may need to be purged. The ease with which you may find yourself making normally difficult decisions may be the surprise on this Full moon.There are several concurrent alignments also pointing to this effect. The South Node, representing past obligations is sitting with heavy duty-bound Saturn. Pluto is also in a nearby degree in Capricorn and Pluto wants us to evolve. Most of us will have or have had this trio in the same sector of our charts for some time. If you look back to the eclipses in January of this year (see my article here), you may recognize the same theme is playing out in your life now, but with a deeper understanding, and more conviction to your emotions and plan of action. Further adding to the theme of new insight and release is Venus, now in its own sign of Taurus, recently conjoining the great disruptor Uranus. Sometimes letting go and releasing others and situations that no longer provide positive reinforcement or grow is the best way forward.

 Many situations that come up now can relate to early family life with Mars traveling in Cancer, and the dispositor for this full moon. Mars squares (is challenged by) Chiron now, opening our deepest wounds and also the insights that help us heal ourselves and others. Whether you use meditation,therapy, exercise or any other method to get in touch with your deepest self,now is a good time to look to the past for solutions to any issues that keep coming up for you.

If you are uncertain where these alignments fall in your chart, consider getting an update on your chart for new insights and possibilities you may not yet be aware of.  Take full advantage of the transits, progressions, eclipses and planetary returns that are affecting you.

Scorpio Full Moon over New York City


Full Moon April 19 2019

Full Moon over Washington DC

There may be a lot riding on this full moon due to its position at 29+ Libra, the last degree of the sign. As a rule, the last degree brings the energy of tying up loose ends, critical issues that must be handled in a last chance scenario, and in some cases “the last straw”.  Because this full moon is in Libra, it highlights relationships, but can also  apply to balancing or making things right as in justice and the law.

The last chance feeling comes not only from the full moon climaxing at the last degree, but because it is also triggering the recent placement of Uranus in Aries at this degree. There may be a revisiting of changes made last November and/or February & early March of this year. If there were issues late last year surrounding refocusing attention on drive and personal matters,this energy will balance out the need to deal with relationships as well.

Both the Sun and Venus change signs the day after this full moon – the Sun to Taurus, and the Venus to Aries marking a shift in tone. The lethargy of winter moves to a more dynamic energy charging up our ability to reach out to others for new beginnings or overdue endings.

Mercury is clear of its retrograde cycle, so ventures that were stymied over the past month or so can now begin to move forward at a faster clip. The release of more information on the Mueller report is part of this. Pluto conjunct the Midheaven of the full moon chart and nearly squaring the Sun and moon is symbolic of the intensity of the Mueller probe having its release both literally and figuratively (as in an exhale) now.

 Saturn stations to go retrograde at the end of the month signaling tightening financially and also applying time and importance to relationships. Attend to and build on the relationships that will support you going forward, and cut loose any that block your ability to climb the ladder of success.

Uranus in Taurus, Mercury Retrograde & the Illusory Spring Equinox

Spring Equinox 2019

Today Mercury stations to go retrograde (important to communications) and Uranus shifts into Taurus (finances, markets,technology) early Wednesday. These transits are leading up to a very sketchy Spring Equinox in DC.  See  the chart above with Mercury retrograde in Pisces, where this planet ruling over our thinking is at its least logical. Mercury is also conjunct to Neptune (the trident) on the Descendant. I would be hard-pressed to find a more confusing, mind-swirling and inaccurate vibe this chart delineates. I would see it largely in terms of communications  we hear in proliferating stories emanating from the mass media. How much of these stories produce a drug-like (Neptune) dependency on hearing more and more of the same narratives that scarcely ever move forward or make a difference?

Look to see where you may be perpetuating a dream like mind fog in order to escape reality, as both of these placements indicate. Jupiter making a square angle (challenge) to both the Mercury Neptune and the moon in Virgo here imply a magnification to the messages we both get and give. On the positive side, this is good for pr if you have the goods to back up your message!

Double check your work, as always, during this Mercury retrograde, and re-work contracts and anything in writing before you publish or sign. Wait until after Mercury goes direct on March 29th to avoid problems and having to re-work commitments or contracts after-the-fact.

There is an emphasis on partnerships in this chart as well, which I should mention applies to the coming Spring season. Also – there is a grand earth trine in this Equinox chart, so look for opportunities to work with the issues and energies brought up from the January eclipses that direct a lot of the focus now from the January Cancer & /Capricorn eclipses.

Uranus enters Taurus, and I see this as a flip for better or worse, depending on the recent trajectory of issues on the areas of finance, income and personal values whether in your personal life or on the greater life stage. If you have not valued your worth as highly as you should, this period is a time when you will break out and expect more for your efforts. This can apply to the area of your chart where Taurus sits, so think of it as a new cycle beginning where you can  look for stagnant areas where you can revolutionize your approach. Uranus spends about 7 years in each sign, so it will be in Taurus until 2026.

Jupiter still in its own sign of Sagittarius continues to add optimism and opportunity to the areas where this transit occurs in your chart, your business’ chart , in your relationship charts etc.

The January Eclipses

The period right before New Year’s eve through January has been extremely stressful for many. It is eclipse season- a time when two or three eclipses come in succession. During these times there are often sudden occurrences that require drastic changes of direction. Through no fault of our own we are forced to deal with sometimes outrageous happenings. It is important to remember that these events are forcing us to grow and that the changes are necessary because some area of our life has become stagnant and less productive. Sometimes a person in our life leaves through some unusual circumstance or even their passing.  The point is, it is not your fault, but you are just left handling the situation. What has made the January 5theclipse more difficult is the close proximity of Saturn (limits) and Pluto (transformation). Pluto is the Lord of death so those types of changes where you have to completely let go of a person are often very painful. In the case of the January 5th eclipse, both the Sun and Moon were besieged (surrounded) by Saturn and Pluto.This made it more difficult to move forward because there are intense issues that must be held in place, at least temporarily, so that you can really feel the depth of the problems and come to the correct response. It is best to not react immediately on an eclipse and give yourself time to sort out the issue(s). Often the eclipses fall in opposite signs of the preceding eclipse in the series, but in this case, we are flung into a new mode and sign. The lunar eclipse is now coming up on January 21st at 0° Leo 51’. This means the things that have left your life or may be leaving due to the recent eclipse will be followed by a sudden switch of focus toward something self-directed,self-involved, creative, heart centered that is at a very new or beginning phase (the zero or 1st degree). If either of the eclipses falls on a planet, personal point or angle of your chart, then the emphasis is even more pronounced. It will be as if one chapter closes and you are thrown immediately into the next one without time to hesitate. Do you know where these eclipses fall in your chart? Schedule a reading to get clarity on upcoming decisions related to these areas.

In New York, the full moon eclipse on the 21st falls on the MC/IC axis auguring some new changes within the city and Uranus (shocks, sudden reversals,technological shifts, enlightenment) at its stationery degree in Aries on an angle doubly emphasizes these changes coming in. We may be seeing some shocking events in New York with this lunar eclipse around the 21st that bring sudden  changes we weren’t expecting. What I am hearing now is it is going to be far colder on Monday- in fact 35 degrees colder than it will be on Sunday. There are technologies that can change the weather that haven’t been openly disclosed that may have to do with this. Listen for the high pitched tone the day before. Keep your warm clothes and a heating pad nearby to stay warm- and hope the technological emphasis in the city’s chart won’t mean a power failure!

Jupiter in Sagittarius: High Hopes & A Reality Check

Jupiter moved into Sagittarius today. Jupiter is a social planet, outside of our personal boundaries, and brings like-minded groups together. With Jupiter changing signs into its home sign, this brings an openness to new opportunities and expands your optimism. Issues in the Sagittarius areas of your chart seem to be opening up and going well. Jupiter opens your awareness through these opportunities that come in these areas of your chart as well, so you may generally be more positive here than negative.

While you may think Jupiter is Sagittarius is automatically great for all Sagittarians or your Sagittarius planets, there are several mitigating factors to be aware of.  High hopes do not always mean getting everything you want, and not getting what you think you want is sometimes an even better learning experience.

While there is a freeing up of the need to dig deep and feel intensely as you reached out (or retreated) while Jupiter was in Scorpio, the overall tone with this transit is the focus on beliefs and philosophies. It’s hard to go anywhere these days without hearing some political topic being spoken about or debated. Jupiter also can bring out overly boisterous opinions and views to individuals and groups that band together. So depending on your relationship to the topic of the day and whether it fuels you or drains you, this transit can have a variety of effects. Be aware of your personal needs; to participate or not, within the public displays that come your way.

Astrological charts with other fire planets and/or angles, (in trine aspect) can seem to have the most beneficial opportunities fall in their laps now. These can always be mitigated by other harder alignments in the chart.

So what can go wrong? For starters, Jupiter has been in good aspect to Saturn all the while it was passing through Scorpio the past year or so. This was positive for drive and follow through on a course of action.

Jupiter will, in a few months, be making a square to Neptune (fantasy, vision and dreams). This brings up the idea of making dreams a reality in a big way. You’ll need to do a reality check with what you are actually doing to make your dreams happen or see if your ideas are not possible to carry out. Start testing your goals now to see if your vision can be concretely manifested or you may find you are wasting your time.

Where is Jupiter in your chart now, and what aspects is it making by progression or solar arc and how is it triggering your inner and outer life? If you want a current map as well as one for the months ahead, contact me for a personal reading and we will go over the best times to use Jupiter’s transits as well as all the other planets’ moves to optimize your efforts.
