Passion, Intensity, Focus – 2016’s Scorpio Full Moon!

Astro Full Moon 6Whether 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?

Sensational Scorpio New Moon 11/11/15

Astro New Moon CrescentThe Sun moved into Water sign Scorpio on October 23 and on Wednesday, November 11, it will be the Moon’s turn. Since both the Sun and the Lunar orb are in the same sign, (which is what makes a Moon phase “New”), all the passionate, emotional, sensitive vibes of this 8th sign of the Zodiac are powered up, intensified.

The New Moon is great for beginnings, starting something – businesses, diets, exercise programs, etc. When in Scorpio, ruled by transformational planet Pluto, it gives us the depth to be focused, persistent and determined. It can be serious! (Sort of a “take no prisoners” way of being?) Until the Full Moon on 11/25, when we are urged to complete projects, take advantage of the energy – initiate, create. Just remember to smile sometimes 😎

Another Powerful Scorpio Moon This Weekend!

Astro moon-waning-crescent-lEarly Saturday morning, May 30, 2015, the Lunar orb sizzles into sensitive, sensual Scorpio for the weekend. When the Moon is in the 8th sign of the Zodiac, we can be focused and intense, so going after whom or what you want is just the way it has to be. No obstacle too high, no stone buried too deep. Use Scorpio’s passionate, seductive energy wisely. Leave the flame thrower in the closet.

Is there anything you want to find out? Search for anyone? Uncover a mystery? A Scorpio Moon provides the determination and willfulness to discover and handle truths. Secrets are not safe from this Pluto ruled Water sign. No hiding allowed. Some feathers may be ruffled, but the impulse to drill down and get to the bottom of whatever will be hard to deny.

Have a super weekend!

 

Scorpio Full Moon 5/3/15 – Intense!

Astro Moon FullThe Taurus Sun is reflected in the opposite Scorpio Moon = a beautiful Full orb in the passionate, emotional 8th sign of the Zodiac. Ruled by transformational planet Pluto, (traditional ruler is warrior planet Mars) there are deep feelings, focus and determination influencing us during this lunar phase with energy to spare. 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?

Final Mercury Retrograde of 2014!

Astro Planet Glyphs 2No need for us to be crazed and confused. We will get through it, again.

On Saturday, October 4, 2014, Mercury Retrograde begins in emotional, intense, “dig deeper” Scorpio. It may affect any investigations, secrets, mysteries you’ve been working on or cause communication gadget interruptions, etc. Make sure any data, information, details researched and uncovered are correct. Double check your sources while you back up the devices that you use to search and / or store. Being cautious can avoid any confusion, miscommunication, misunderstandings. Mercury’s backward motion begins in the passionate 8th sign of the Zodiac, but will back up into relationship focused Libra on 10/10/14 until it stops and goes Direct again on 10/25/14. Don’t be surprised if people, places, events of the past return to haunt, bite or even please us. Watch what you write, be careful of what you say in order to lessen the possibility of negative impact as you interact with others.

“Retrograde” is the perfect time for “re” actions, such as, re invent, re write, re reread, revisit, renew. Use the next 3 weeks to take another look at past decisions or old projects that may have been dropped and forgotten. Does an idea deserve another chance, another go round? Was anything missed? Are there any monetary, financial accounting mishaps? When Mercury goes Direct on October 25, things will gradually become clearer as the planet picks up speed. You’ll be able to go forward with anything you may have discovered. If you can, wait a few days after Mercury’s forward motion before signing contracts or agreements.

Good news! This is the 3rd and final Retrograde Mercury of 2014! (next 1/21/15 – 2/11/15)

BTW: Mercury just “appears” to go backwards. Planets only move forward, however, due to the earth’s changing speed as it orbits around the Sun, the positions are such that it looks like a reverse motion from earth.

Scorpio Full Moon – Go Passionate, Go Deep!

Astro Moon FullThings might get a little intense on Wednesday May 14, 2014. Scorpio, a passionate water sign, can be emotional and sensitive and the force of a Full Moon can distill all that power into a cauldron of “feelings”.  All that energy can go off the charts. Tuck in all exposed nerves. Don’t take everything personally. During a Full Moon, gauge what has been accomplished so far and move to finalize, complete tasks in the next few weeks. Use Scorpio’s focus and determination to figure out what to keep and what to throw away (meaning – discard whatever is no longer useful.) Letting go is not necessarily giving up.

 

 

Great Weekend – Moon in Passionate Scorpio, Then Peppy Sagittarius

Astro moon-waning-crescent-lBeginning Friday December 27, 2013, until Sunday, the Moon is solidly in the middle of Scorpio drama, intensity and determination. Anything you want to find out? Search for anyone, uncover a mystery? The Scorpio Moon provides the determination and energy to discover and handle truths. Secrets are not safe from this Pluto ruled Water sign. No hiding allowed. It translates to an unwillingness to coast, “go along to get along”, etc. Some feathers may be ruffled, but the impulse to drill deep and get to the bottom of whatever will be hard to deny.

Early Sunday morning, it’s all about Sagittarius. When the Moon bounces into this Jupiter ruled Fire sign, we tend to be upbeat, friendly risk takers. It’s all good, everything is possible, a “yes” attitude. Fun Sagittarian energy – great time to do something, be something, learn something – and enjoy it!

Have a marvelous weekend!

 

Moon for the Holidays!

Most of us will have an early weekend start due to the Holiday. Below is a heads up about where the Lunar orb will be and what influences we may experience as we celebrate: Astro moon-waning-crescent-l

Thanksgiving / Hanukkah (begins Wednesday at sundown)  Moon is in relationship central Libra, so whether you will celebrate either/or (both?), this Venus ruled Air sign is perfect for social gatherings, sharing abundance, setting a beautiful table.

Weekend:  Beginning Friday evening the Moon will be in determined, focused, take no prisoners Scorpio (it’s ruled by Pluto). This can be great for scoping out sales or just corralling a significant other into a secret rendezvous. Regardless, Scorpio’s passion and Water sign emotions can be put to good use.

Enjoy your Holiday!

 

Scorpio Moon Saturday & Sunday!

Astro New Moon CrescentThe Lunar orb is in Water sign Scorpio this weekend (along with the Sun). A “New” Moon and a Solar Eclipse, on November 3, 2013, occurring in the same sign, makes the caution “hold on”, excellent advice – power and passion can go off the charts. Moderation works. Going deeper may reveal things that you don’t want to see or hear. However, New Moons are great for beginnings, initiating plans. The 8th sign of the Zodiac gives us the fire power to be focused, persistent and determined. For the next 2 weeks, seize the opportunity and go after what you want. (Just remember that Mercury Retrograde, in Scorpio, doesn’t end until 11/10/13) Have a meaningful weekend!

3rd & *Final* Mercury Retrograde Of 2013!

Mercury Retrograde in the emotional, water sign of Scorpio begins on October 21, 2013. Yes, it’s the last one of the year. Back up your stuff! Don’t let carelessness or lack of focus bite you in the nether regions. Mercury, (planet of communications, transportation, education, manual dexterity) stopping and then moving backwards in the sky is not a tragedy, but it can get in the way of things running smoothly. So, just in case – pay attention. Make sure loose ends are tied. We will get thru these potentially dicey 3 weeks once again.

Astro Planet Glyphs 2As always, use this time to review or revisit projects. Don’t go overboard, especially with the Retrograde occurring in “dig deeper” Scorpio, the 8th sign of the Zodiac. Its natural intensity is a great opportunity to research, re calculate, re think. Does the plan make sense? Was anything missed? Are there any monetary, financial recounts necessary? When Mercury goes Direct on November 10, things will gradually become unstuck as the planet picks up speed. You’ll be able go forward with anything you may have discovered.

BTW: Mercury just “appears” to go backwards. Planets only move forward, however, due to the earth’s orbit around the Sun, the positions are such that it looks like a reverse motion from earth.
