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.
The 1st Friday of 2013, January 4th, gives us a Libra Moon so that we start the weekend off on an artistic, relationship focused, harmony loving note. Persuade someone over to your point-of-view? Find a compromise? This Air sign fosters good feelings, people activities, beauty and creativity. Smile and enjoy it.
Saturday evening, the Moon will move into serious, secretive, stubborn Scorpio. This Water sign will have us “feel” things. Emotions can be dramatic and intense. No patience for the superficial – “real” conversations, one-on-one connections are demanded, drilling down to reveal the hidden is not unusual. (Going deep has its advantages.)
We can be flexible, go with the flow – we can have a great weekend!
Another New Moon phase happens early on Monday October 15, 2012. This month, the Lunar orb is “New” in Air sign Libra. When the Sun and the Moon are in the same sign, there is support for innovation, fresh starts, a great time for beginnings.
Libra’s social traits are intensified and “New” can mean new friends, relationships, partners, contracts, ideas.Find a new BFF, risk a blind date, speed network during a business card exchange party? Pick one. Regardless of what you choose, there will be interaction – it’s up to you just how much charm and cooperation will be spread around. This dynamic energy lasts about 10 days and as the Moon transits the other signs, different areas of life will be primed for a “start-up”. Go for it!
FYI – Sun has been in Libra, 7th sign of the Zodiac, since 9/22/12.
On Friday October 12, 2012, the Moon will be finishing up its stay in the industrious work and “pay attention to the details” Earth sign of Virgo (great way to finish up all the odds and ends of the week).
On Saturday afternoon, the Moon moves into relationship focused Libra and remains there until Monday. We can network. We can socialize. Ruled by lovely Venus, Airy Libra really appreciates comfort in both surroundings and partnerships. You can fill the bulk of the weekend with silk and cashmere quality events if you want- people, conversation, pretty things.
Have a smooth weekend!
All day Saturday and Sunday will be about Fiery Aries Moon energy. The Lunar orb will also be “Full”, which adds extra potency. The vibe should be perfect for any “David & Goliath”-like challenges you may have to deal with this weekend. Focus your physical, aggressive urges, strategize and think before you act (rash, over the top impulses can lead to embarrassment?). Warrior planet Mars rules spark plug Aries and it’s “In your face” tendencies can mean direct, honest, competitive rather than just loud and angry. The influence of the Harvest Moon transit thru this sign can make our weekend fast paced and exciting. Take advantage.
The Moon is “waning” on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters, making it a good time to finish up old projects, clean up messes that you have been ignoring for the past few weeks. Once you clear out what has been hanging around, you will create space for the “New” – ideas, things, spaces. (The next New Moon will be 10/15/12 – in Air sign Libra.)
FYI – Harvest Moon 9/29/12, 11:19PM Eastern / 8:19PM Pacific. The first Full Moon after the Fall Equinox is always labeled a “Harvest Moon” (The Equinox occurred on September 22, 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. (Beautiful, dramatic, nothing to fear.)
On Friday, both the Moon and the Sun are in efficient Virgo. That means this month’s New Moon, on Saturday September 15, 2012, will be in that same Earth sign. Like all “New” Lunar phases, the next 2 weeks are a great time for initiating, starting, creating, etc. Use it to organize and de-clutter both mind and surroundings. Take advantage of Virgo’s natural “I’ll handle it” approach to take a look at health and nutrition. Are there things to be improved – diet, exercise? Don’t spend too much time being critical of yourself. Take care of needed changes now.
Early Sunday morning, the Moon glides into partnership loving, luxury loving, understanding-both-sides- now loving Libra! I think Airy Libra oozes such charm, fosters lovely win/win cooperation and drives us toward social interaction– a promotion, an introduction, a party?
Make the weekend worthwhile and exciting!
Thursday, March 8, 2012 has Virgo Full Moon “handle it” energy. With health minded, practical earthy Virgo, the universe will support you as you complete and finalize whatever vitamin/diet and exercise regimen you may have been thinking about or planning. The influences of this Lunar phase will last for several days even after the Moon sign changes. Get it done.
Late that same evening, there will be a shift to Air sign Libra for Friday and Saturday. This Moon makes us gracious, charming and sociable – but, you don’t have to agree with everything that’s presented to you. Stand your ground if you must.
Finally, the arrival of a Scorpio Moon on Saturday overnight closes out the weekend. This intense, emotional Water sign will demand that you drill down and connect with others on a deep level. Superficial just won’t make it. Be self aware – if your speech or actions turn into drama for drama’s sake – ease up. Hit the melodrama pause button.
Whatever you do, have a terrific, accomplishing weekend!
***But wait! Don’t forget Sunday March 11, 2012 at 2:am begins Daylight Savings Time – turn clocks ahead 1 hour. (That whole “Spring forward/ Fall back” thing)
The practical, no nonsense Virgo Moon on Friday January 13, 2012 can act as a buffer to any nervous feelings due to “triskaidekaphobia”. Focus on the usual concerns of this Mercury ruled Earth sign- health, nutrition, service to get thru the day. I have found that Friday the 13th is usually a lucky day for me. I don’t think it had anything to do with it being a payday or anything? Regardless, I expect good things to happen!
Early Saturday morning, the Moon glides into luxury loving Air sign Libra and remains there the rest of the weekend. Harmonious Venus casts its spell, and you can fill the days with silk and cashmere quality events if you want – people, conversation, pretty things.
Be kind, charming and socialize. Have a lovely weekend!
FYI: “Triskaidekaphobia” – fear of Friday the 13th.
Take the opportunity on Friday and Saturday and use the Virgo Moon to get all practical, responsible, “detailish” and stuff. It may sound a little flat and unexciting but it doesn’t have to be. Think of it as preparation for the early morning arrival of the Libra Moon on Sunday December 18. We lose a bit of the pragmatism and reward ourselves with lots of charming conversation, partnership cooperation and sparkling social interactions– maybe a party?
As the steady, efficient Earth sign, Virgo reminds us of the importance of health, nutrition and work – it will lend itself to a guilt free “what’s next”. Air sign Libra, ruled by luxuriating Venus, can be all about good food, pretty things and lovely people. Not bad.
Have a sensible and delicious weekend!
Friday February 18, 2011 provides early morning mood changes. (Just in case I haven’t been clear in my weekend update Astrology posts, my premise is that as the Moon changes signs, so do our moods, our energy and often how we act/react in the day to day.) The Moon will be in “Full” power at 3:36AM Eastern/12:26AM Pacific in generous, ”let’s have fun” Fire sign Leo. A Full Moon phase is good for wrapping things up, finishing what began at the time of the New Moon. The effects will last for a few days even as the Lunar orb changes to the next sign.
About an hour later the same day, the Moon moves into service oriented, practical Virgo – from upbeat Leo to the conscientious, discriminating Earth sign – we can handle it. Take advantage of the Full phase’s continued influence by using this Mercury ruled sign’s cleverness and penchant for detail. You can get stuff done.
And finally, early on Sunday 4:39AM Eastern/1:39AM Pacific, way before Brunch time, a Libra Moon makes us social, agreeable and decorous. Have people over or meet someplace nice, make both yourself and your home attractive. There is a lot to be said for beautiful things to lift spirits and ease the settling of any disputes.
Be flexible, go with the flow, have a varied Weekend!
(BTW- the Sun doesn’t move into Pisces, the 12th sign of the Zodiac, until Friday evening 2/18 – which is why the Moon is Full in Leo while the Sun is exactly opposite in Aquarius in the morning. When the luminaries are opposite each other – the Moon is “Full”)
