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.

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.

Lunar Eclipse, Mars & Mercury Retrograde

Lunar Eclipse – Jul. 27, 2018

July 27th we have a Full moon/Lunar eclipse. This eclipse falls at 4 Aquarius 44 and triggers the Mars retrograde which is sitting less than one degree from the eclipse degree.  You may be feeling held back from progressing in whichever area of your birth chart this eclipse falls, or you may literally need to contain your emotions this week. Because the eclipse is in Aquarius, some issues that may come up related to unspoken emotions around friendships, and frustration due to detachment in your emotions toward others, or of someone else toward you.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is remain objective while emotions are being activated with an eclipse. The idea is when the moon is full, the light shines on the area or degree of the full moon. But when the full moon is eclipsed, emotions from past events are both stirred up from the past and repressed simultaneously. Reacting as opposed to reflecting will have a negative effect on relationships. As always with eclipses, don’t react as we are in the middle of these next two eclipses that finish the series this summer. So meditate on the past and family so you can release issues through the South node, and hold back on actions until you find the most optimal solution to any issues on the table now.

Other aspects to this eclipse when looked at from our nation’s capital (see chart above) add challenges in our position due to the area where this eclipse lies plus issues in the financial arena. Our finances are troubled here because of a T-square to Uranus in Taurus and a sesquiquadrate (square + a semisquare = 135°) to a very debilitated Venus in Virgo. The challenge seems to be playing out with the economic deficit that our administration is attempting to address with trade wars… which aren’t solving the problem.

[[ **NOTE – The day after this post went live. Trump ordered an end to the Trade War with the EU.]]

And if we look at the Federal Reserve chart (see chart below), it is being decimated right now with both the last eclipse on its Ascendant and this eclipse now in the 7th house of open enemies or rivals where the eclipse degree and South Node (old debts) sit. Trump recently made a comment about the Federal Reserve and Central Bank having policies that were set up to hurt the economy. Well, it certainly made the bankers rich! ..but to the detriment of the people. With Pluto (transformation/power plays) slowing down to station on the Fed chart’s Descendant (same as 7th house – rivals/enemies or partners) in October, we are looking at a battle to the death over this institution’s role or even existence.

If you haven’t been to my talks, I have offered many solutions to protect your savings when this change in the currency takes place. Contact me to buy my “Practical Preparedness for the 2010’s and Beyond” packet or CD, or copies of my recent information rich workshop on DVD.

And what could make an eclipse season more interesting than the flubs and fixes needed during a Mercury Retrograde? Not much! This summer’s retrograde runs from the eclipse day July 27th to August 20th. Don’t sign, don’t buy, and try not to put important messages in writing. They may be misunderstood or need revision, so do your research first. But do get your electronics fixed now!

If you’d like clarity on your current situation and to get the most out of  the eclipses and the retrogrades this season by seeing how they align with your chart, contact me for a Special Summer Eclipse reading by phone at 1/2 the price of a regular reading.

Pluto Goes Direct – Full Moon in Aries

Pluto Now Direct & Full Moon Oct. 5th

We are well out of the Mercury Retrograde and smack dab in the middle of a Pluto Station. This is where Pluto stops its retrograde, grinds to a halt, then slowly begins to go direct again. Pluto is all about release and rebuilding, as well as power struggles. Projects that have been held up start to move with a fury from any prior struggle. Secrets and motivations are uncovered. You will find out the truth about long-delayed issues; it may not be pleasant, but you can’t fool yourself or anyone else any longer. This week’s full moon in Aries makes a square (challenge) to Pluto bringing everything to a head that hasn’t yet been addressed. Will you or a situation or person you are having an adversarial relationship with prolong the situation (Pluto is about control), or let go and find another way to get what you each want? While Venus and Mars are conjunct in Virgo during this lunar phase, perhaps there is a middle road where all involved can still stick to the rules, be less critical and find a happy medium.
