Aquarius Full Moon- A Blue Moon

29 Jul

Aquarius+(1)

The time of the Aquarius Full Moon is the time to reconcile our need to feel special and our need to be an individual with the needs of the collective.  It is our time to use our special gifts or talents for the good of all and to create a win win situation.  At this time we may see a turning point or a culmination in the areas having to do with our social purpose and our social circles, our friends, and groups that we belong to or have a common link with.  Aquarius is known for being a humanitarian sign and we can ask ourselves at this time, what our contribution is to the betterment of the larger society.  Aquarius is a sign having to do with changes and new things.  We may see a turning point in some of the changes that have been stirring and our discontent may now turn to excitement about how some of these changes will shape our future.  This Full Moon is special. It’s a Blue Moon.  Things are changing and coming to a head now as we head toward September’s Eclipses.

The Asteroid Ceres makes her presence known at this rare Blue Moon. 

Ceres Rx in Aquarius is quincunx Venus Rx in Virgo at the time of this Full Moon. Venus re-enters Leo shortly after the Full Moon transpires. We may have a desire to purify now which could have us changing our diet, nutrition and exercise routines.  Food related disorders/illnesses or cures can come to light at this time.  Also any women’s issues such as gyno issues or hormonal symptoms could also be food related and therefore corrected or improved by altering the diet using phytotherapy or adding herbal supplements as an example.  Eat your medicine!  Body image also falls under the domain of Ceres and with Venus retrograding in the earliest degree of Virgo, we may desire beautiful perfection and be quite critical of ourselves or others when the ideal image is not lived up to.  The Sabian Symbol for the degree of this Full Moon reads, “Beautifully gowned wax figures”.  We may need to learn to accept being perfectly imperfect.  Venus will retrace her steps through Leo, and we may have to re-evaluate what or who we consider to be beautiful or a Glam God or Goddess.  Perhaps we can fall in love with ourselves and appreciate the gifts and talents that we do have and to know our own value without the need for perfection or comparison.

Neptune in Pisces is also in aspect to the Leo Sun now, helping us to modify some of our ideal images with the essence of our personality.

Child care, child rearing and early education also fall into the hands of Ceres and Leo is a sign that is also associated with children so these issues may become more prominent now.  We may need to make adjustments with young children now.  Perhaps we are preparing them for school.  We may also have to reinstruct them and their values and make some changes.  The lessons may include teaching them that they’re not the only ones and the importance of their role within a larger group, how to participate and to wait your turn as well as make your contribution.  It may also be a good time to learn to appreciate and even enjoy our chores and routines and get some satisfaction from them.  We can learn to feel rewarded just from having a sense of accomplishment and success from our efforts. That is the prize. 

Ceres also has rulership over employment and the work force so there may also be some adjustments in work and employment situations and the money earned or paid and the value of work done or services provided.  Especially highlighted will be professions dealing with food and nutrition such as cooks, servers or even farmers and farm to table establishments, nutritionists, caretakers and caring professions such as child care, or hospice workers as well as counselors just to name a few.

Jupiter in Leo is square Saturn Rx in Scorpio at the time of this Blue Moon. Our opportunities for fun and enjoyment may be challenged due to limited resources or wanting to conserve some of our resources, or perhaps due to deadlines, schedules, duties and responsibilities.  There is hard work ahead but we know we can do it.  We have opportunities for creating and materializing our future now and our growth at this time is more concentrated and focused.  Our sense of enthusiasm for risk and adventure may be met with cautiousness.  It may also be a time where growth in our confidence is stimulated by reforming and resurrecting our discipline.  It is a time to dig deep, find what you are made of at your core, and get in touch with your grit and determination in order to act on or take advantage of chance opportunities.

Full Blue Moon Blessings to All!!!

August 20 Full Moon in Aquarius

20 Aug

The Full Moon August 20 is at 28’11 Aquarius where the Sabian Symbol is “A butterfly emerging from the chrysalis”. 

At the time of this Full Moon in Aquarius, Jupiter is closing in on a square to Uranus.  Uranus is the ruler of this Aquarius Full Moon and upping the ante on the unexpected factor.  This is also somewhat of an ‘astrological blue moon’ since this is the second Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius. Jupiter entered the ‘zone’ of the much talked about Uranus/ Pluto square back on August 7th where Jupiter opposed Pluto.  Jupiter increases everything it touches so it’s been magnifying the unstable and volatile nature of this energy pattern.  The Volcanic eruption in Japan on Sunday is an example of this energy and it was also said to be the highest volcanic plume ever recorded for this volcano.  We see the influence of Jupiter in the mix amplifying the volatility.  We can even see this with the escalating violence and upheaval in Egypt in the last couple of weeks.  The powerful energies of these outer planets define and shape a generation. What this means to you will depend largely on your own natal chart.  You could ask yourself where you may have experienced sudden changes and upheaval in your own life. What seems to be cropping up in your own life? Things might get crazy at this Full Moon. It is possible that things come to a head at this Full Moon while leading to the emergence of something new as the Sabian Symbol suggests.   Though these upcoming changes are unsettling, in many cases they are needed and even welcomed. 

This Full Moon makes an opposition to a Mercury/Ceres conjunction in Leo where communicating creative thoughts and ideas create self-esteem and self- worth.  We have a need to nurture and take pride in our creative side.  Children and children’s issues in regard to learning and education are highlighted at this time as well. It could be that you are registering your child in school for the first time, or your child could be changing schools, or there could be a change at the school or with the school itself.  For example: a new principal, new teacher or faculty, or a new location due to a school closing, etc.  Since it is now “back to school” time, we’ll encounter these issues as usual during this time but it’s becoming more apparent that our educational system is yet another crumbling structure within our society.  The Uranus/Pluto square in effect until 2015 is showing us what doesn’t and isn’t working any longer and where changes need to be implemented, often by force since on some levels we’re refusing to budge. 

Venus Caught in the Crossfire

11 Jun

June 11-12

Venus, the Goddess of Love tangles in the tense and ongoing square between Uranus and Pluto.  This could upset relationships as family values and our desire for the familiar, comfort and protection or our sense of belonging is confronted by the elimination of things that were long standing or that seemed permanent and set in stone. Whether viewed as something of security or an obstacle, we are challenged to take risks and initiate changes.  Vesta in Cancer is also in quincunx to Juno in Aquarius and it may be that although we are devoted to home and family and hold these things sacred we must acclimate to any shake ups or unrest in relationships.  Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces perfect their trine aspect indicating that although these are constructive changes we’re going through that we may be left feeling disillusioned, lost or confused for the time being. If you’re not feeling this in your love life, look to your pocketbook for these unsettling changes.
