On Tuesday, July 19, 2016, the Sun is in Cancer, the Lunar orb is lit up and “Full” in its opposite sign of Capricorn. The Astrology sign that houses a Full Moon has its traits and characteristics heightened for a few weeks. The earthy, Saturn ruled, 10th sign of the Zodiac is about status, ambition, authority, duty. Capricorn leans towards long term goals, managing a career, creating success (whatever that means to you) and reaching for the top. Are your personal actions and business strategies producing results?
“I’m in charge” – take the time to figure out a path to do that successfully. We can use Capricorn’s Full Moon energy to finalize and complete projects, activate plans that can move you closer to what you want.
*Capricorn Full Moon: 7/19/16 – 6:56PM EDT / 3:56PM PDT
On Saturday May 21, 2016, the Sagittarius Moon is fully lit by the Sun in its opposite sign of Gemini – very dramatic, but nothing to fear. (No fangs or hairy knuckles.) The entire weekend will be under the benevolent influence of the wise, but perky and energetic 9th sign of the Zodiac. Ruled by lucky, expansive Jupiter, expect a lean towards adventure, an “of course good things can happen” outlook and a willingness to go for miracles – which can come in handy when edging a project toward fruition. A “Full” phase is a time to look for results– we start to see the end product of plans started at the time of the New Moon back on 5/6/16.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, at “Full” phase the Moon is “waning”, on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters, therefore, we could feel its effects for about another2 weeks.

Whether 4/21 on the West Coast or 4/22 on the East Coast, we will experience a Full Moon in powerful, sensual, emotional Water sign Scorpio. The 8th sign of the zodiac is ruled by transformational planet Pluto, (traditional ruler is warrior planet Mars). Heightened sensitivity may result in raw, deep feelings during this lunar transit – be aware of possible over reaction. A Full Moon is a good time to figure out what to keep and what to throw away (discard whatever is no longer meaningful, useful, and / or beneficial.) Gauge what has been accomplished since the New Moon and move on to finalize and complete tasks in the next few weeks.
Scorpio also 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? Does anyone owe you anything? Time to collect?

A Full Moon (& Lunar Eclipse) will be in classy, social Libra on Wednesday March 23, 2016. This Air sign is ruled by the lovely Venus and urges us to beautify ourselves, our surroundings and our relationships. Hopefully, the resulting loveliness will make us more inclined to cooperate with partners, seek balance in negotiations, and keep calm in deliberations. It may help us tune out/tone down any negative, angry voices (out there or in our heads) – charm and beauty are always good antidotes.
A ”Full” Moon, Lunar Eclipse phase packs power. It’s 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 4/7/16.
*Full Moon in Libra: March 23, 2016 – 8:01 AM EDT / 5:01 AM PDT
Virgo Full Moon energy inclines us to take care of ourselves and our work. Ruled by clever Mercury, this responsible, 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 phase is a great time to move towards finalizing whatever project or diet regimen you may have been planning. The universe will support you in being healthy and contributing.
The influences of a Full Lunar phase will last for several days even when the Astrology sign changes.
*Virgo Full Moon: February 22, 2016 – 1:20 PM EST /10:20 AM PST (the Moon, in Virgo, is opposite and reflecting the Sun, in Pisces = “Full Moon”)
Saturday’s Full Moon, January 23, 2016, will be in dramatic, Fire sign Leo – no better way to heat up, perk up a winter weekend! A “Full” phase intensifies the traits of the sign it is visiting and with Sun ruled Leo, (its Zodiac symbol is the glorious Lion, King of the jungle) we feel generous, creative and get the urge to flame and sparkle while flitting across the world stage. (“Look at me!”).
So step into the spotlight, wear some regal purple, be royally magnanimous to your subjects (friends and family) and have a great time. Also, use the Full Moon’s energy to finish projects begun at the time of the last New Moon (1/9/16). Its considered a fortunate time to take care of loose ends and it will last for about 10 days even as the Moon moves into efficient Virgo on Monday.

Christmas Day finds us with a Full Moon in the nurturing, sensitive Water sign of Cancer. A “Full” phase (Sun and Moon gloriously opposite each other) is good for the finalization of projects, clearing up messes, etc. The 4th sign of the Zodiac is family and home focused, so completing old business may involve where you live. Make your environment safe and secure as possible, clear out the old, give space for the new. Gather and give away anything no longer useful or positive in your space, whether it be things, feelings or conversations. Get rid of what’s “done and dusted” – finish whatever was started at the time of the New Moon.
*Full Moon December 25, 2015 – 6:11 AM EST /3:11 AM PST
The Sun is in Sagittarius, which means that this month’s Full Moon, on Wednesday November 25, 2015, is in the opposite sign – Gemini. While the Moon is in the Mercury ruled 3rd sign of the Zodiac, communication is key. Speaking / writing can tend towards the witty and the clever, but with “Full” energy, our interactions can also be purposeful, powerful and precise. I love this quote from Deepak Chopra:
“Language creates reality. Words are magical power. Speak always to create joy”
Let us all do that!
* Full Moon: 12/6/14 – 12:15 PM EST / 9:15 AM PST
Feeling beautiful, stubborn and material? It might be the vibrations of the Taurus Full Moon on Tuesday. 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. Indulge your sensual side while monitoring investments. Share chocolate covered strawberries with someone while tallying your checkbook at the same time. It’s possible!
As always with a “Full” Moon, it’s a good time to finish what you’ve started. With the grounded Taurus influence, it makes sense to complete any monetary dealings and/or improvements to the home – beauty, comfort and safety. What do you value most? What do you need to do to have those things in your life, always?
*Taurus Full Moon: October 27, 2015 8:05 AM EST / 5:05 AM PST
This month’s Full Moon, and Lunar Eclipse (Sun. Earth, Moon are lined up), Sunday September 27, 2015, is in fiery Aries. The 1st sign of the Zodiac is ruled by “Warrior” planet Mars. Combustible and aggressive, spark plug Aries’ usual “in your face” traits may be influenced by transiting Uranus, the unpredictable planet of change and revolution. (It remains until May 2018.) You can be radical, honest and direct, rather than just loud and angry.
Do the suggested Full Moon things – finish up old projects, clarify any fuzzy ideas that are hanging around (remember Mercury is still Retrograde). Use the extra Aries energy to get things done. By clearing out useless stuff, you create space for the new. However, forceful Aries can be a little over the top sometimes. Don’t torch everything while trying to weed out the old, think things through before the ashes start to float around.
* Harvest Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aries 9/27/15 *10:50PM EDT / 7:50 PM PDT
(The first Full Moon after the Fall Equinox is always labeled a “Harvest Moon” – The Equinox occurred on September 23, when the Sun moved into Libra)
*During a “Full” phase, the luminaries are exactly opposite each other. The Aries Moon is fully lit by the Libra Sun. (The Lunar eclipse provides the reddish color – beautiful, dramatic, nothing to fear.)
