This chart promises the potential for both Neptune’s mysterious plague and Pluto’s creaking death cart.  They are in connection for the moment.   But it also promises the construction (Saturn) of a new healing (Chiron).  Perhaps the Earth will benefit from enforced quarantine, perhaps we will make new discoveries around the immune system, but, whatever else, we will never be the same planet or people.   We know we can change everything we take for granted, our work, our social structure, our ability for sudden transformation and potential for infinite resilience.

No surprise, the worldwide wonder of each day continues, as a new Moon begins in Taurus.  The Lunar cycle begins each month when Sun and Moon meet at the same degree.  This particular degree in Taurus has a strong image, a promise we have heard before.

‘The Pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow.   Riches that come from linking the celestial and the earthly nature.  ….the bridge used by divine beings to communicate with mortals.   Man need not be overawed by the celestial display of power, for it leads to a fruitful contact with beings of light. ‘  Sabian Symbol for the degree of Sun and Moon in Taurus. *

A Plague and ‘a Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow’ is an interesting combination.  How would that look?    Perhaps like this image by Amelia Leonards.

New Moon in Taurus 2020

Astrology, at its best, communicates the connection between ‘celestial and the earthly nature.’   A quick look at this chart shows a ‘bowl’ (or a pot of gold?) pattern with only six houses (segments) of the circle occupied by planets and luminaries.  Looking at the form of the pattern here we see a very clear rainbow (crescent) shape in the placement of the planetary occupants.

Cheek and jowel with the Luminaries is the planet of surprise, and upset, Uranus.  Expect more shaking of your world.  But no one is alone in this place of shock and awe. It is a universal phenomenon.   The Biblical rainbow came after a huge flood, and could be interpreted to mean: Cosmic forces offering peace.  What form will the next message take?

There is an interesting combination of planets in this moment which might give us a clue.    Mars,  shape and form of energy; Mercury, the messenger and healer; and Venus, the expression of love are in a crescent shaped relationship.  Venus in Gemini loves clever rapport, and friendly banter.  Since Gemini is ruled by Mercury, and Mercury is in a sign ruled by Mars, the three seem to be united in their message.   Don’t be afraid to move in new ways, says Mars in Aquarius….think and speak with courage and bravado says Mercury in Aries, respect  the rules of love and friendship says Venus in Gemini.   This recipe spells political courage and activism, new alliances between all those who have been most deeply hurt by this extraordinary challenge to human existence. Maybe it’s time to ask: How do we listen (Mercury) to the passionate (Mars) love (Venus) of each other instead of the powerful interests of those who benefit from our disarray.

But now it’s time to take a close look at the sign of Taurus.  Sun and Moon meet here  every year at this delicious time of spring beauty in the Northern Hemisphere, final harvest Moon in the  South.

When the Moon is in Taurus, she is in her exaltation.  This is a mirror to the last sign, Aries, when the Sun was in his exaltation in Aries.  The Bull is chosen as a sacred symbol of the Moon because his horns are the crescents which mark waxing and waning.  Moon is joyful in a sign ruled by Venus, and loves the mystery of fertility which this symbol honors.  For the Druids Taurus was a sacred time, and the bull was a sacred animal. It’s interesting that Saturn, the great teacher is powerful when located in the two signs, ruled by Venus, Taurus and Libra.  There is some sweet connection between this feared and ancient magician, and the power of the Queen of Love.  The illustration is also connected to the Three of Cups Tarot card. Celebration and gratitude are part of the season. The constellation is connected to the labyrinth of Crete and the sacrifice of a white bull each spring in the Celtic lands. Taurus is one of three Earth signs in the zodiac, and Beltane, the Fire Festival of this element falls on the fifth day of May.   Taurus is ‘fixed’ upon the unfolding of each blossom and the opening of the season of Green.

It’s under the full Moon we see our shadow self projected where we stand. And while this is true of every full Moon, this full Moon with its Aries/Libra energy casts light on the basic polarity of male and female interaction.   Some very important truths remain hidden until the time is right.  This full Moon may be that moment of revelation.  Saturn is in an exact square to the Sun and Moon.  Saturn injects time, and unavoidable responsibility to manifest into this moment. His Sabian Symbol is ‘a human soul, in its eagerness for new experiences, seeks embodiment.’   As much as Saturn is about the past, he also is about incarnation of spirit into material form.  Like this image of an ancient megalith  from Brittany growing amidst a young forest, there is a huge amount of energy  from the past mixed with the dynamic energy of the present in this full Moon, which will occur on Monday!  The young trees hide the stone from the casual eye, and yet seem to enhance its meaning!

 

Full Moon in Aries 2018

 

The Libra Sun and Aries Moon always make this opposition around this time of year.  The moment of the fall equinox has taken place with a momentary balance of dark and light.  The sign of Aries is also about equal amounts of dark and light, yet the fiery energy of spring has a very different feeling, not so much balance, as a revelation of life’s persistence after winter quiet.

There is an aspect of emergence in this chart and this moment which might be best understood in light of the Kavanaugh revelations.  Events long considered, ‘just the way things are,’  are no longer hidden below the surface of time.  The natural privilege of men to subdue and silence women has been challenged.  The way we think about men, women, and physical power is under judgement.  The degree image of the Sun, ‘the dawn of a new day reveals everything changed’ says we are beyond compromise.

The symbol for the degree of the Moon, ‘the cameo profile of a man, suggesting the shape of his country,’ is there for all to see.  This is the shape of power challenged by all those who have had enough.  Chiron, the wounded healer is the companion of the full Moon.  Mercury and Demeter are traveling with the Sun.  Sometimes tenderness and compassion win out.

Mars and Venus are in opposition in these two signs, Libra Sun and Aries Moon.  The vital masculine energy of Mars and Aries are held in the Moon’s embrace, and weighed in the scales of Libra Sun.    Saturn with the companionship of the asteroid Vesta sees and reveals an old and hidden  wound between men and women.   Note that Chiron the healer is very close to the Moon.  Vesta,  at the same degree as Saturn is goddess of hearth, and the sacred aspect of women’s rites, (and rights).  Of course this chart applies to everyone on earth, not just the characters in the drama in Washington.

And there is more in this dramatic full Moon.  Typhoons, hurricanes and massive gas explosions are nature’s expression of the power that is building.  Mars and Uranus are locked in a square which corresponds to elements of their signs.  Uranus, always the planet of unexpected and highly electrical energy, is inTaurus.  Taurus is an Earth sign ruled by Venus, who, by the way, is in Scorpio, great revealer,  right across from Uranus and square to Mars.  What does this all mean, you say?   The planet earth is no long suffering in silence while humans deny her pain.   The Sabian symbol for the degree of Uranus is: ‘an electrical storm.’  Mars is in close contact with Black Moon Lilith, a representation of the fury of the disrespected woman.  For most of us this will play out internally.  We will feel male and female aspects of ourself in conflict, restless and eager for new relationships, where we no longer deny emotions or visions.

We all have  work to do.  This full Moon will give us a clear definition of where we need to develop balance, and honesty about how we dispose of our our garbage,  which never goes ‘away,’  but has the potential to become compost.  In all this storm and chaos, are the seeds of a new spring, whirling in the wind.   I’m tired of astrology which does not embrace the life force which is held in conflict, because these conflicts are always pieces to make up the whole.  This full Moon gives us each the opportunity to accept both sides of old polarities we have been taught to fear, to embrace and laugh as we watch our shadows dance under the full Moon.

   A few days ago, a client said: I’m done with the fears I brought with me from other lifetimes, when I was punished for my knowledge of healing and magic.  I’m going to pursue my studies and offer my talents and knowledge to other people.

What she was feeling, tells the story of this full Moon and eclipse period.  The Sun in Leo and the Moon in Aquarius, give us the courage of Leo and the vision of Aquarius to leave old stories behind and launch new projects without listening to the fear which might devastate us at other times.  With full knowledge of our traumas from the past we can push past what holds us back from expressing what we came here to manifest.

Full Moon in Aquarius 2018   

It’s an eclipse!  Total!   No view from North America because the eclipse happens before we see Moonrise, but the power of an eclipse lies beyond what is visible.  It is an opportunity to feel the immensity of our connection to earth and sky.   With each full Moon we are stretched between perception (the Sun) and feeling (the Moon).

Feather eye.jpg BL                                    photo: Bruce Lhuillier

The Sun is in the sign he loves the most, LEO! We celebrate our Lion, solar  nature! How wonderful to be alive,  to have the Sun in us, and and shining on our back.  But the full Moon always takes place when the Sun has set, when the Moon reflects the Sun back to us in night darkness.   At a lunar eclipse, a mysterious force, a demon, a dragon,  devours the Moon bit by bit, and then slowly releases her.  How is it possible that the shadow cast by our planet, the earth  darkens the Moon at her brightest moment?   And what does this tell us about the fears we project outward on to the future?

The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius, his realm is our place in community!  Aquarius is grey, maybe pearly, androgynous,  neither male nor female.   Although the constellation Aquarius is an Air sign, he pours water from a huge urn and lives in a very wet part of the sky, called ‘the Sea.’    His neighbors are Pisces, the fish, Capricorn, the sea goat, Delphinus, the dolphin, Hydra the water spirit. For people who live in areas of the earth with a wet season and a dry season, Aquarius is a gift of life, or a disaster.

Aquarius rules our ankles,  Leo the heart and spine.  Ankles give our bodies  mobility and balance, the heart and spine  are life itself.   At this moment 4:20 pm July 27; full Moon, eclipse, Mars is reversing into the Moon’s degree. Will he  knock my Moon off balance, or give me the energy to push into the future, the realm of Aquarius?  The old and new rulers of Aquarius: Saturn and Uranus are woven into the tapestry of this moment. Saturn represents solid manifestation.  Uranus is about new forms of communication and energy.  Together they form an Earth trine with each other. If they work together, is there hope for the future of the earth?  This is a personal question for each of us!

This full Moon/eclipse takes place on an intense degree of my natal chart.  Perhaps this is true for you as well.  I feel challenged to express what lies hidden and feels fearful.  I call on Chiron as healer and teacher of the underworld to help me step forward, I call on Leo Sun to light my way, I call on Aquarius Moon with his Martian companion to show me the map to my journey.  As for Uranus, who challenges the full Moon from his position in the sign of Taurus, Uranus demands authenticity, and loves to surprise me at every turn in the road.
