The Moon moves into the 9th sign of the Zodiac – let’s have an adventure Sagittarius – on Friday afternoon and becomes “Full” in the evening. This is a good thing – we can have fun as we prepare for the holiday weekend. During a Full Moon, the luminaries are exactly opposite each other. The Moon is fully lit by the Sun (in the opposite sign Gemini). Lovely, dramatic, but nothing to fear .
A “Full” phase, is a time to look for results– we start to see the end product of what ideas/efforts were begun at the time of the New Moon. With fiery Sagittarius, we have energy, a sense that “of course good things can happen” and a willingness to go for miracles – which can come in handy when edging a project toward fruition. (The Moon will continue to wane, decrease in size, until we see the Moon in its “crescent” view.)
On Saturday afternoon 5/26, the Moon will slip into the next sign, Capricorn, and remain there until Monday. You might notice a definite attitude/ atmosphere change. The 10th sign of the Zodiac has a duty, responsibility, authoritarian focus. Maybe not many laughs, but things will get done
Enjoy the holiday!
This Air sign’s Moon turns Full early on Wednesday March 27, 2013 reflecting its opposite Aries Sun. Libra Moons can make us cooperative, social with an urge to beautify both ourselves and our surroundings. Good. It will help us tune out/tone down any negative, angry voices out there (or in our heads) charm and beauty – always a good antidote. Be clear in your communications, mean what you say and act accordingly.
As I’ve mentioned in this space before, a”Full” Moon phase packs power and can give our thoughts clarity. It starts the “waning” or decreasing, of the Lunar orb, a good time to gather results or confront the useless – clean up old projects, get rid of outmoded thought patterns and attitudes in order to clear the way for the “New” Moon on April 10, 2013.
Monday, February 25, 2013 with all its Virgo Full Moon energy inclines us to take care of ourselves and our business. The hard working 6th sign of the Zodiac is about health, service, handling the details and getting things done. Just be careful not to do too many things at once. Juggling might be exciting and a personal test of skills, but don’t go overboard. Think “pace”.
A Full Moon is a great time to finalize whatever vitamin or diet regimen you may have been planning. The universe will support you in being healthy and whole. The influences of this Lunar phase will last for several days even when the sign changes.

A dramatic, fun, open and generous Leo Moon sets the tone for any weekend festivities, whether they be planned or unplanned. Exciting “look at me” melodrama is always possible with the fiery 5th sign of the Zodiac and since the Lunar orb is also in its “Full” phase, lit by its opposite Sun in Aquarius, fireworks are possible. Strive for calm. Turn down that theatrical flame a little, try to sparkle in moderation on Saturday and Sunday, if that’s even possible.
Leo wants us to be active, upbeat and regally magnanimous as we use the Full Moon to wrap things up and bring projects to completion. This fortunate time will last for about 10 days even as the Moon moves into the next sign of practical Virgo.
Enjoy the weekend!

It’s ruler Mercury, the Communications planet, is finally out of Retrograde motion as of 11/26 and both a Full Moon and a Lunar Eclipse occur in Air sign Gemini on Wednesday = powerful. The possibilities of clear, meaningful verbal and written exchanges while the Moon is in the third sign of the Zodiac are always with us, but with “Full” / Eclipse energy, even more so.
What do you need to say? What do you need to write? With Gemini, interaction can be smart and clever, but now while the Luminaries are opposite each other – light from the Sagittarius Sun reflected on the Gemini Moon – it can also be purposeful, powerful and precise. Lunar Eclipses often make us rush (an urge to finish/complete) whether the urgency is real or imagined. Take your time when finalizing communications or signing contracts. Close scrutiny and review can’t hurt if it’s important. Finish up what was started around the time of the New Moon, 11/13/12.
Feeling beautiful, stubborn and material? It might be the vibrations of the Taurus Full Moon on Monday October 29, 2012. This is a fixed, finance focused Earth sign guided by the elegant, luxury loving planet Venus.
Whatever vibes are out there can all be put to good use. As always with a “Full”, it’s a good time to finish what you’ve started. With the grounded Taurus influence, it makes sense to complete any money dealings and/or improvements to surroundings – beauty, comfort and safety. What do you value most? What do you need to do to have that in your life, always?
The “Full” phase of the Moon intensifies the characteristics of the Astrology sign it’s in. When the Moon is Full in Watery Pisces, the last sign of the Zodiac, expect: emotion, creativity, hazy reality. Friday August 31, 2012, is the 2nd Full Moon for this month. A rare occurrence, it only happens every 2 years or so – it’s referred to as “Blue”. (You know that expression – “once in a blue Moon”.)
However, back to Pisces – stay focused, be discerning. If things seem a little vague, you may want to delay any decision making or signing of documents. Your imagination will be stoked, therefore, this can be a great time for the arts. Use the heightened sensitivity to enjoy beautiful things. Spread some Pisces kindness among family and friends. Smile at nice looking strangers. (This is where that “discerning” thing comes in handy)
Aggressive, Fiery, Aries Moon for Sunday and Monday’s Labor Day. Be active, be curious, be lively, but stay out of mischief.
Have a marvelous Holiday!
FYI: Previous Full Moon was August 1, in Aquarius
On Tuesday, the Sun is in Cancer and the Moon is lit up with reflected light in its opposite sign, Capricorn– it’s all about status, authority and work. Saturn ruled Capricorn has ambitious yearnings. The agenda involves managing career, creating success (whatever that means to you) and reaching a pinnacle. Are your business strategies, actions producing results? A Full Moon in Earthy, grounded Capricorn is a good time to think about it.
However, remember that if there are any radical changes that need to be handled, wait until the Moon Phase is “New” on July 18 Pacific /July 19th Eastern. (A New Moon works well for start ups.)
There is nothing to fear when the Moon saunters into Sagittarius early on Monday, June 4, 2012. It will be at the “Full” phase, dramatically lit by the Gemini Sun, but rather than conjuring up any of those werewolf-like scenarios, it’s a time to look for results. We start to see the end product of any ideas/efforts we began at the time of the last New Moon.
Optimistic, jovial, ”let’s have an adventure” Fire sign Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the “Lucky” planet. We should feel energetic, enjoy a sense that “of course good things can happen” and have a willingness to believe in miracles – which can come in handy when edging a difficult project toward fruition. (We can really have fun with this )
Beginning Friday evening, we will be under the influence of a powerful, determined Scorpio Moon. Things get even more intense this weekend as the Lunar orb goes into its “Full” phase on Saturday night, May 5, 2012. The 8th sign of the Zodiac is a sensual, sensitive Water sign and the force of the Full Moon can distill all of its passion into a cauldron of “feelings”. Tuck in all exposed nerves. Pause before responding to slights or barbs, (real or imaginary). The comment or action that brought you to either anger or tears may not have been as snarky as imagined. Instead, use that Scorpio sizzle and passion to rock someone’s world in a delightful way.
Scorpio pushes us to focus on money matters that may involve others. Are there any financial issues that need to be cleared or settled– taxes, business ventures? During a Full Moon, gauge what has been accomplished so far and move to finalize, complete tasks in the next few weeks. (Sort of a”what have I done?” and “what’s next”.)
Happy Cinco De Mayo!
