2012 Dark Night Winter Moons - Full and New

Make your Magic, M’Lady!

Friday Dec 28, 2:21 AM Pacific, FULL Moon at 7 Cancer 06

Christmas is building up to this Full Moon, the Moon in her own sign Cancer! Takes that kind of double power to oppose the Sun AND Pluto, Pluto a formidable planet! The Sun is just two degrees from Pluto at 9 degrees Capricorn. Serious mojo! Sun/Pluto combinations are the number one factor in the most wealthy US corporate charts! Super wealth, fame, are possible. Death is possible. In between, we have relationship matters, money, sex, power plays. We have loyal unions ’til death do us part, or trickery and cheating that saddens the Spirit. Full Moon oppositions give a stand apart, stand back potential that allows us to be less entangled so we can see what’s really happening. Breathing space can be a good thing, a relief, can relax. Sometimes we are surprised, deeply pleased, there is a secret that played into things, a loving intent, far more than we ever thought possible. Time to clean up old bitter fears, love and be loved. The Moon in Cancer loves no matter what, unless badly hurt, wants to take it home. Both Cancer and Capricorn are Traditional. The fireplace, the cabin with trees, may be a good choice over the holiday week. Capricorn loves the mountains, a bit of snow would be lovely! Capricorns, leave the work alone a few days, take some genuine time off.

Moon is one degree semi sextile Jupiter in Gemini! Let’s talk about family, where we are going to live, go to school. Would love to hear about lineage, where we came from. With Sun/Pluto in thrifty guardian Capricorn, the renovation better be in line with budget, be a good deal, not take too much time. What about prefab, or an eco home? Is it big enough? Moon is part artist, Jupiter is story teller! Let’s do some painting, photography to illustrate! Let’s get women and children to choose some of the chapters! If it brings up hidden or fearful emotions, grief, let’s stand by each other, make a safe place together, gently do some good things to point to a better future.

The Capricorn theme is spoken a second way by the Moon trine Saturn, the planet of Capricorn. The Pluto theme is repeated because Saturn is in Scopio, Pluto’s sign. Saturn sextile Pluto just made their exact aspect two days before, on the 26th. Saturn’s profound job is to harness Pluto’s power in a good way. Since Jupiter is inconjunct, there has to be good reason, and a meaningful destination. Pluto can be extreme, mercilessly taunting Death! You would think God would get ’em for being so audacious, but no, they thumb their noses and keep right on going! It can be compulsive and obsessive, true, but, the talent is undeniable. They usually win, and, when younger, if they screw up, heal miraculously quickly! Saturn can focus the drive in the right direction, and with impeccable timing produce sublime results! Throw the Moon in here and the intuition increases their chances. A woman, child, person of childlike Spirit, may save the day! Let it be!

Friday Jan 11, 11:44 AM Pacific (like those numbers?), NEW Moon at 21 Capricorn 46

YES! Our first Moon of 2013, the next 26,000 years! Capricorn is our starting sign of the next 26,000 years, the Sign it started with Dec 21, 2012! This is a daytime Moon with a stellium of FIVE PLANETS IN CAPRICORN! Venus, Pluto, Mercury, Sun and Moon are doing us proud! Honor, reverence, surrender. Do the good work of your life, be what you were here to be. Venus loves her way along, makes superior appraisals. Pluto clears debris and obstructions, recycling when can. Mercury offers a hand, sometimes barks orders, communicates necessities. Sun and Moon merge the expression of nurturing and professionalism, child and adult. Mentoring is a gift.

Not linked specifically to the Moon, but in the chart of the moment, Venus is making a 3 degree Magi symmetrical pattern called a Mighty Green Fortress! Really, I don’t know where they get their names, but I love them! It is formed by a baseline inconjunct, in this case, Venus with Jupiter – can’t entirely decide what I want. Venus squares Uranus, don’t get too close, and Jupiter squares Neptune and Chiron, we are not going the same direction, really. Venus sextiles Neptune and Chiron, I love you anyway, let’s play Dr. Jupiter Gemini sextiles Uranus Aries, I don’t care where we go, let’s just GO! Yippee! Neptune/Chiron Pisces semi sextile Uranus Aries – don’t mind if I do, bored, lead the way. That’s just one line of thinking. I think it’s about what risks to take – is it possible, do you believe enough? Love and trust yourself.

Scorpio – Fires Within

Wednesday Oct 26 | 12.56 PM Pacific | Super New Moon | 3 Degrees Scorpio   This is the 5th of 2011’s 6 Super Moons.  Super Moons are when the Moon is 90% or greater of its closest approach to Earth.  When it is a full moon, it appears as much as 15% bigger!  They indicate more intensity, higher tides, strong storms if there is one, higher seismic activity.  This is a NEW MOON, and Scorpio is noted for intensity of the deep dark water variety!  Records could be set, relationships could start or crumble, there could be revelations about money sources, resurrection of old alliances, brushes with death, healing through saturation/immersion, miracles!  Time alone may be deeply needed and appreciated, a transfixion of quietness.  This is happening midday, so you may need to get away, take a bit later lunch, to meditate or have a private meeting.  Being a new moon, perhaps it is small beginnings, let things grow in their natural way.  The temptation is to use force, but avoid pushing at it, causing a distortionate break or growth ahead of its time.  Being only two days before the Jupiter trine Pluto puts it in that aspect’s hot zone!  There may be an ebb then a leap!  Read on….

Thursday Oct 27:  Occultations are Eclipses too, not just Moon/Sun Combos! They occur when planets are lined up both horizontally and vertically, exactly in the line of sight! Some years they happen again and again, often to the same planet. 2011 there are only 3, all formed by the Moon to different planets – 6.30 Venus, 7.27 Mars, 10.27 Mercury.  Oct 27’s Moon occultation Mercury is our last of the year.  Moon is emotional, Mercury is logical, and they are making a merger!  Feel what you think, say what you feel, but be really careful because this one is in Scorpio.  You can’t take back what you have said, and it may cut deep.  If a conversation even hints at turning South, let it go, NOW.  There may be an unanticipated price down the road, even revenge.  And it takes a lot of effort to repair, sometimes can’t be repaired.  The other side is someone may tell you something more valuable than you even realize at the time.  You may be healed or given a key piece of information that transforms you, your situation, relationship.  And it may be a blessing in disguise.  There could be an ending that serves you well in the long-term, and actually has been overdue.  Be able to engage, listen big, disengage if needed.  It’s a life skill worth having.  This is especially true this occultation because first Mercury is activated by its direct alignment with the Moon at 22 Scorpio at 7:08 PM, then the Moon passes over Venus at 23 Scorpio at 9:23 PM, just a little over 2 hours later!

First the New Moon quiets us, making us thoughtful in behind-the-scenes observant Scorpio, on the 26th.  Then the Moon, Mercury, Venus combination makes us extra aware of home and family, about love, the 27th.  It opens our capacity to attune, speak our love and affection, to kindly and potently tell what we want, both personally and in business, to see more clearly how we can make the money to support ourselves, loved ones, do things we naturally love.  These are the catalysts and a poignant part of the forming Jupiter trine Pluto, exact the very next day, the 28th, at 9:46 AM Pacific!

Friday Oct 28 Second Jupiter trine Pluto at 5 degrees Taurus and Capricorn.  This and the Jupiter sextile Chiron (the next one will be Dec 6) have been the aspects that have kept the Stock Market up this year.  Jupiter is expansionary, lucky, wise, foresees the directions things will take, is optimistic, will take long odds and win!  It has an extraordinary ability with perspective, watches the big picture, is playful.  Can’t keep a good Sag/Jupiterian down!   Pluto is the planet of wealth and Chiron of business!  Pluto cleans up messes, is expert at rebuilding after losses, recovery from illness, never says die!  When in top order, it is a clean machine!  Deep and internal cleansing, firing people who are not able to make the returns needed, are its forte.  Though at times painful for the recipient, in the long-term, the move is usually the best and reform and transformation happen.  Jupiter wants space; Pluto wants mergers and deep intimacy.  So, if a merger happens, it is probably a better deal than usual.  There has to be a real attraction for Jupiter to see a future in it and accept the transaction.  It will likely be a long-term value.  See more at last month’s pre Jupiter trine Pluto post.

Jupiter is fame, fiery, education, and speed sports; Pluto is death and healing, charisma, power.  The first trine was July 7 – on  July 8 we lost Betty Ford, died at the age of 93. She was known primarily for her work post-whitehouse and for founding one of the most famous rehabilitation facilities (The Betty Ford clinic) in the world. Widow of former president Gerald Ford.  Coming into this second trine, we have lost two.  1) Steve Jobs Oct 5 (4 degree trine): Chairman and Co-Founder of Apple, died due to  complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 56. Jobs was known for his keynote speeches that were given each year to update the loyal Apple followers, as well as his enlightening interview style.  2) Oct 16 (2 degree trine): IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon died after suffering severe injuries in a spectacular 15-car wreck at the Las Vegas Indy 300. He was 33 years old. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner (including this year’s event) was critically hurt when his car sailed over the top of another during a massive, fiery wreck on Lap 11.  Ironically he had been driving test cars to avoid exactly that.

All of these people made powerful contributions, each in their own way.  May they rest in Peace.  And may we LIVE this aspect well, and carry on its teachings with Grace.

Scorpio, Master of Resurrection

Scorpio is the only sign of the zodiac that starts in a double number month, November, 11.  Double numbers double the power, called Master Numbers!  Scorpios have always been feared and revered!  As Libra is the sign of mirrors, Self reflected through others, looking across the table, Scorpio is the sign of merging, ultra sensitivity to others, doubling power when a merger is accepted, accumulating power with each merger, corporate like.  Being a ‘permeable’ water sign, is why they walk around with the stinger ready, a demeanor of don’t mess with me – to keep away the ones that don’t suit at that time.  Or, they don the mysterious unfathomable poker faced mask – you don’t know me, I’m not available, yet, if ever.

The mask, sometimes freely worn as the perfect image of inscrutability, implies a need to protect, a vulnerability that is perhaps not discernible to others.  So there is a certain unpredictable ferocity, a tempestuous wildness in the cauldron, that you need to be careful of until you get to know them better.  And which one of you are we speaking with?  The mask we see or the one behind the mask?!  Both?  Do you know yourself?!  And we all know that, there is more to us than as first or often appears.  One of us is the ‘face,’ the other fermenting.  We all have Scorpio somewhere in our chart,  an 8th  house (Scorpio’s natural part of our chart), and Pluto (Scorpio’s planet) somewhere in our chart.  We all have a minimum of 3 places where we experience Scorpio’s Shadow and Revelation, one way or another.  Since the Mask implies the one you see and the one you don’t know but is there, perhaps this is part of the Great Mystery of their super healing, both having and bestowing.  The mask calls forth what is needed, attracting the Force, while the inner person gathers strength from within, perhaps even resting, while the Mask is lining things up externally.  They have two chances at life, healing from two directions!  Scorpio has always been known to heal faster than other people, miraculously so even when there has been extreme wounding.  And they heal not only the obvious, but the source of the trouble.  Complete healing, through and through, body and Spirit.

Because a partner, an equal, has been attracted, and legalized in Libra, now there is also a very real other, Self, that is there to help when needed.  No doubt they are finely attuned, because Scorpio is highly sensitive, and must pick a partner with higher compatibility for comfortability.  Their reputation is to mate for life.  You can see why.  Only in extreme circumstances do they give up their relationship, and when it’s up, it’s up.  Period.  This deep bond must be boon and bane.  It’s blessed when it is well, and tortured when it isn’t, because it is that close no matter what’s up.  Sigh.  Scorpio is the sign that most often marries one of its own same sign.  So there is less work explaining, there is natural concert, extraordinary potency.  It’s as if another person, or is that two persons, is helping with healing, comforting, encouraging exactly as needed, as if it is another yourself you must live for!  What is that Mayan phrase?   “In Lak’ech” – I am Another Yourself   I’ve thought of that as a Gemini phrase also, Gemini the sign of two.  I think of Gemini and Scorpio as different stages of butterflies.  Geminis flit here and there with nary a care, or so it seems, and Scorpio is the silent invisible Creature in the Chrysalis, deep in dark, soon to bloom.

Lights on, heads up!  Get out your Jupiter thunderbolts and let’s dance!

July 2, Dec 6, and Feb 14, Valentine’s Day 2012, Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Chiron in Pisces! This one will be while Chiron is at 5 Pisces, the first of the three times. July 2 is the last day of the Sun Grand Square, so the build up to this sextile will be challenging, and the challenge will be helped by the teaching healing perspectives the sextile brings. In addition, the Grand Square will be helped by the concurrently building first-time July 7 Jupiter trine Pluto in Capricorn only 5 days later! That will bring phenomenal growth, power, possible wealth, and potential teaching healing, intensify complex situations. I doubt solutions will be simple or immediate, but they will certainly be fascinating! July 7 is the first day of the Venus Grand Square through the 13th, so the follow through needs a bit of finesse. Let love soften the obstacles even, perhaps especially, when the going already seems good. This will be like a little super challenge. Make a point of loving it uP!

Chiron and Pluto are both thought to be healers. Chiron is concerned with teaching, marriage and business, all partnerships of a kind. Teacher/Student, you and your mate, your business/customers – clients/partners.  In Pisces, they need to be magical!  Fiery spirited Jupiter likes teaching too. It travels about, goes to college, gathers a plethora of knowledge, stories, experience, inter cultural sharing, and brings it to the table for exchange. Jupiter is not so often interested in marriage, can be hard to catch. They are off to another adventure. They can be truth tellers, having points of view acquired on the road.  They see you well because they don’t know you, yet are astute observers since their survival depends on instant appraisals. Whether it be about you, your attitude, or the dynamics in your relationship, they likely have at least a part of the truth. True, they can project, seeing through their own lens, but still, what in you called that up in them? Jupiter is not as interested in money as Chiron and Pluto are. They make do as they go. They laugh and love, have fun, are offered shelter for their stories, do an odd job or two here or there, just enough for food maybe. They have expansive ideas, can see further beyond, since they must anticipate the weather, the temp of the locals, where it’s safe or not. Often their suggestions pan out, quite worth your hospitality, let alone the entertainment value!

Pluto is a no fool-around planet.  It seeks the Great Mystery, unabashedly looks at sex, wants to know how money works, and how it is we come to live and die.  It especially doesn’t fool around in Capricorn, that wants the job done toot sweet.  If things are not working, good, you find that out, done with it.  If you are going up the mountain at a steady pace, good, progress.  Cut losses when it makes sense, less whining, more doing.  It’s all ok.  Focus, use good timing, don’t give up.  Seek coaches and mentors right now!  Jupiter will laugh with you all the way to the bank because it has big ideas and is a great direction finder!  It just knows where the good stuff is!

Both these aspects are positive in classical astrology, so invite a teacher, traveler, soothsayer, to your table. Then listen. Learn about healing – of body, mind, Spirit. Plan a clever party, and laugh because you can and it’s even fun when you are on your knees!  Be free and thankful!

Make your appointment for a reading to see which areas of your chart these and other factors are activating!

MOON Void of Course ALL DAY daytime 10 times in Cancer!  June 22, 27 and July 1, 3, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17.  VC is thought of in two main ways.  Nothing will come of it; there is nothing to stop it.  Whichever school you are of, be wise about making appointments, starting projects, on those days.  For more on Void of Course, see the last item on the page at this link.

July 1 Solar Eclipse New Moon at 9 Cancer finishes our sequence of 3 eclipses in a row. Feeling what you are saying, doing, is vital. Your feelings have SUCH potency.  Your effect on others runs a course from one person to the next.  Seeing how much your feelings affect those around you may make you choose to divert your attention to more positive feelings.  Feelings can consume your attention so you don’t think or see anything else, holding you from seeing out in front of you, and moving forward. Emotions have enormous effect on your vitality and health.  Emotions tell you what’s up, and how important it is!  Take good care of yourself, like what you feed yourself.  Good organic food creates your chemical balance, makes a difference.

One of the true Cancer gifts is loving people unconditionally.  We see it with Mom’s and their children.  It’s a true power – they can lift that car right off their kid!  Practice that power of love yourself, to yourself, to others, adults.  Often what seems irrational about them, scares us, but when we sit with them for a time, walk in their shoes, they become simple and understandable, maybe a lot like us!  Even if not, all beings deserve love and care?  If the Soul is of many life times duration, as some of us speculate, fostering a self worthiness can go a long way in healing.  It gives them the message they are worth it.

Happy Eclipse!

The Aries Fire Stellium is OVER.  Now as we enter Taurus, the sign of loyalty and steadfastness, what was new, or did you start, during that Aries stellium, that you would like to continue to have in your life?  What value did you bring in that you are happy to maintain?  I have a new student who is new to astrology, and she is taking in the principles amazingly quickly!  I started sharing some more garden space with another community gardener, and intend to grow crops I will harvest to store for winter food.

Wise old Saturn is holding the fort at his 10 degree Libra station (appears to be stationary, still, in the sky) from May 18 to July 8, turning direct (forward) June 12.  Those of you with planets at 8 through 12 degrees will feel the need to enforce or question the rules, make or break commitments, let go or take responsibility, respond to age issues, make career choices, engage in father/ing matters, build for a stable future.  Being overwhelmed burdens the Soul; timing that fits the deed and your needs and your Spirit makes all the difference.  Focus and do your best.  Make yourself proud!

Jupiter is making his last stand in Aries until entering earthy Taurus June 4, starting off a fine Saturday!  That will leave only Uranus in Aries, the lone wolf on its own again, but happily so in a sign of its same spirit, both Uranus and Aries loving freedom and independence!  Jupiter in Aries gives a last chance these 14 days to start what we will, get educated to be encouraged, have confidence, to lead the way, or follow someone we trust well.  It could be more fun than you have ever had before!  Frolicking is good!  Roller skate, hike, ride your bike!  Continue it with Jupiter in Taurus exercise; do the fun kind!  Long horseback rides, mountain walks, walk your dog!  Endurance and strength sports are satisfying.  Long distance and heavy weight.

Jupiter, good luck, fame, huge growth, in attractive Venus ruled Taurus can attract more money than God – they call it a BULL MARKET when the stock market is going UP!  Jupiter in Taurus can keep that money, hordes of it, may travel to the ashram for an extended stay, found a non-profit organic farm, raise horses, buy fine art, start an imported cosmetics franchise, do melting massages at the spa on the train, drive a huge moving truck, give sculpting seminars!  It may get off to a slow start, but once rolling, it just keeps going.  Dedicated, determined, loyal.  Simple, common sense solutions.  Luxurious hair, earthy beauty, natural fabrics, furs.  It looks further ahead than its own two feet, so makes ‘lucky’ choices.  Well grounded, centered, satisfied, peaceful.  Smooth jazz.

Jupiter may, at this time, be even a bit more languid than just the easy-go-flow of Taurus because it is sextile Neptune (only this one time, not the usual 3 times) upon entry into Taurus, makes the exact aspect June 8!  Both are ‘religious’ in that Jupiter rules churches and sets the tenets of faith; Neptune is the Pisces planet, Pisces being the sign of spiritualism, meditation, meeting God on your own terms, often religious diversity.  Jupiter usually calls for adherence to the church’s philosophy, though can be open-minded and take up religious studies.  Pisces, is perhaps more Buddhism oriented, compassionate, yet can believe so passionately as to give one’s life for the cause, a devotee who lives in silence and service in the spiritual abode 24/7.  This aspect offers what works for you, the best of both, in your everyday life.  Jupiter in Taurus loves the armchair more than the airfare.  There better be a good reason to take that trip.  Probably chooses to make oms at home!  Neptune is now in Pisces, its own sign.  It, like Taurus, is usually gentle.  But don’t let this fool you.  Being gentle is one of the greatest powers on earth.  A good teacher can ask clever questions, sneak right up on you and let you think you thought of it yourself!  Feeling and being safe, opens all the gateways for learning.  Your eyes open right up wide with the happiness of the leap – insights, epiphanies, are the order of the day!  Let it be!  Make music!

This is the Full Moon of the Buddha celebrated worldwide.  The Buddha is thought to actually come to Earth in a Himalayan valley. Sitting as the Buddha, being grounded and centered, feeling completely aware of everything/nothing, having gentle compassionate wisdom, total peace, are what we seek. With two outer planets, Jupiter and Uranus, still in Aries, it might be more like Thich Nhat Hanh’s walking meditation, riding your bike long distance in the Zen of the flow.  But at the time of the Full Moon, there are FOUR planets in early Taurus, a stellium, starting with Venus, Taurus’s own planet, Mercury, then Mars, all three closely together in conjunction.  The Sun is last, at the end of Taurus.  Mars, Venus and Mercury are the planets associated with the first three signs of the zodiac, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, as if in summary of the three sacred festivals of the first three Full Moons of the year, Aries The Christ – Love, Taurus The Buddha – Wisdom, Gemini Humanity – The Word! 

Taurus sits on the rock, walks in focused prayer and silence stopping to listen, touch the trees, tip and sniff the flower now and then.  It is one with Nature, loves the touch of all its textures.  Barefoot on soil presses minute particle to particle, draining away hysterical fear, replacing it with a neutrality from the soil that allows you to be free to see simplicity.  A Tao Te Ching phrase that has been with me a long time is ‘Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Till right action arises by itself?’ 

Scorpio Moon?  Taurus is mine.  Scorpio is ours.  Sharing.  Mutual funds.  A gathering of resources from the deepest realms.  The Native American Underworld where power is sought, faced alone, Spirit your only Ally, imbued with a Sacred Trust.  The Greco/Roman mythological underworld of Hades.  Christian celibacy; tantric sexual intimacy, a merging beyond words.  The Pagan life sustaining storing of goods for winter sharing, a living reservoir of human connection.   

Goddess Mother Moon, GrandMother Moon, lights these ‘dark’ places as fully as She can, with her Night Light, a gentle, more bearable Light, than the Light of Day.  This is a time to look upon the silver strands that connect us, absorb their meaning.  What binds us?  Money, Love, genetics, nothing we can explain?  Is it time to step across the barriers, cross the threshold to the next level?  To return to our prime mission?  To let go and keep walking?

Walk it, share as you can.  I will be being mindful the evening previous the Full Moon, and the 17th, in planetary prayer.  The Sun and Jupiter will be in the degree of the Galactic Center.  Join me in Spirit if you wish.  By your grace.
