Full Moon in Aquarius 7/22 * Radical Change?

The revolution may be televised or not – but there will certainly be unusual, unconventional activity whenever the Moon is Full in the 11th sign of the Zodiac. Independent, group focused Aquarius can be a stubborn sign with an affinity for causes. Before jumping to the front lines, pause and reflect – is the issue real for you, or is the response automatic / knee jerk. 

Astro Moon FullWith a Full Lunar orb in this sign, Aquarian influences may be felt more intensely. Uranus, this independent Air sign’s planet ruler, loves change, hates constrictions and thrives on spontaneity, which can be exciting but precarious. Thinking works. You can still volunteer, organize, make a difference, do the “No Justice, No Peace” chant without falling off the edge. (Put that flame thrower back in the closet.)

 (As I’ve mentioned before, at “Full” phase, the Moon is opposite the Sun and is in its “waning” phase on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters, therefore, it is a good time to clean up and finish old projects.)

Aries Sun & Vernal Equinox = Spring, Yay!

On Wednesday, March 20, 2013 the Sun moves into the dynamic first sign of the Tropical Zodiac – fiery Aries. The Sun has transited all 12 Astrology signs and the cycle starts anew. We also celebrate the Vernal Equinox on the same day – 1 degree of Aries. Spring is here with new, fresh chances to bloom!

Fire sign Aries’ impulsive, physical high energy can be used to springboard astrology_chartwheel 2those  ideas and projects that have been percolating all winter. Just to add to the excitement, powerful planets will be visiting Aries for the next few weeks, thereby sparking an extra oomph to this already “snap, crackle and pop” sign.

Planet ruler Mars (the Warrior planet), transiting since 3/12 will remain until 4/20/13. Speed, competition, confrontations lure us. Realize however, we can use any over abundance of aggression for accomplishment, positive action. Do something useful. Will the Love and Beauty planet Venus, in Aries until 4/15, embrace Mars and turn all that passion in another direction – it’s possible. We will certainly be more inclined to choose the “one” and zero in – could be much fun.

Mercury is in Aries too from 4/14 until 5/2/13.  Communication may have more quickness, edge and bite – you’ll be great in debates? Create powerful tweets?  (Just watch the snark.)

And last, but not least, please note that unpredictable, non conformist Uranus is transiting super octane Aries until March 2019 and wildness may occasionally break out. Sudden urges to “act” – out or up – will be hard to resist at times.  However, action with purpose and focus, rather than just because we’re bored is a good way to go. Aries is prone to rushing, risk taking and scattered energies. Think a project through and complete it.  But, don’t forget to have fun. Spring has arrived and everyone can use a little bit of controlled frolicking every once in awhile.

Full Moon in Zodiac Activist Aquarius 8/1/12

A Full Moon glows in the 11th sign of the Zodiac on Wednesday August 1, 2012. We will feel the influences of friendly, unconventional Aquarius more intensely than a usual 2½ day Moon transit. A stubborn, group oriented, caring sign, it is about the “We/Us” rather than the “I/Me”. 

This Air sign is ruled by unpredictable, freedom loving, change craving Uranus.  Intellectual rather emotional, the concern for others that is part of the Aquarian personality is authentic and matter of fact. Volunteer, organize a community, find a cause, leave a place better than you found it.

Full Moon: 11:27PM EDT/ 8:27PM PDT. (The Leo Sun is opposite the Aquarius Moon = Full )

As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, at “Full” phase, the Moon is “waning”, on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters, therefore, it is a good time to clean up and finish old projects. (The best time to create, start new things is from the beginning of a “New Moon” phase thru the 2nd quarter – “waxing”.)


Weekend Aquarius Moon – Get Outside That Box!

Friday afternoon April 13, 2012, a Triskaidekaphobia” Day, begins an unpredictable, innovative, freedom craving Aquarius Moon weekend. This Air sign is noted for its stubborn resistance to the status quo. Ruled by eccentric Uranus, it influences us to create something “new”, resist authority, and refuse boredom at all costs. It can truly lead to interesting times 🙂

Also, while under the humanitarian focused Aquarius Moon, we have a good time getting in the middle of group rallies and community activities. Get involved with anything that matters to you. We can make a difference and still have fun.

Have a super, worthwhile weekend!

FYI:  “Triskaidekaphobia” – fear of Friday the 13th. (Don’t)


The Sun is in Aries * It Must Be Spring!

The cycle begins again with the Sun entering fiery, Mars ruled Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac. Besides being the beginning of the Astrological New Year, March 19, 2012 (10:15pm PDT) / March 20, 2012 (1:15am EDT) is also the first day of Spring – the Vernal Equinox. I always have the urge to start waving a checkered flag and yelling “start your engines” at this time of year. I love it.

This is a great time for beginnings, start ups, what to plant, etc. We should keep our eyes open for opportunities. That Aries impulsive, physical, amped energy can be used to bungee jump off that mountain of ideas and projects you’ve been stewing about all winter. The universe will support you. However…

With unpredictable, eccentric, Uranus visiting this super octane sign, for 7 more years, wildness can result, so pay attention to those urges to “act” – act out or act up.  Action with purpose and focus rather than just because we’re bored is a good way to go. Aries is prone to rushing, risk taking and scattered energies. Think a project through and complete it.  But, don’t forget to have fun. Spring has arrived and everyone can use a little bit of controlled craziness every once in awhile.

As always, those most affected have the Sun and/or Rising sign in Aries, but the rest of us will still feel the feisty influences somewhere in our lives depending upon where the Fire sign appears in our chart.

Capricorn and Aquarius – What a Weekend Moon Combo!

Moon in Capricorn on Friday, March 16, 2012 – Moon in Aquarius on Saturday and Sunday. Our Lunar mood influences will range from the business focused Earth sign to the people person Air sign – work hard, be in charge on Friday and attend a community fund raiser, charm volunteers for a neighborhood project for the rest of the weekend? It’s doable!

However, just remember to utilize, wherever possible, the energy of the particular sign the Lunar orb is visiting on a particular day:

*Dutiful, Saturn ruled Capricorn: Authority, ambition, organization

*Spontaneous, Uranus ruled Aquarius: Friendly, innovative, thrives in groups with a cause

Whichever way you roll, use your best stuff and enjoy the weekend!


Varied Weekend Moon: Bossy Cap / Irreverent Aquarius

The Moon visits the ambitious, status concerned Earth sign of Capricorn on Friday February 17, 2012.  Ruled by Saturn, a Capricorn Moon can be a time of business focused, deliberate movement. It brings out the “administrator” in us – a perfect time to organize, assign tasks, give directions, take charge, move with purpose.

Early Sunday we go from duty bound stoic to friendly rebel – the unpredictable, freedom loving Air sign Aquarius. While under this Uranus ruled sign’s influence, we are in the mood to do something inventive and spontaneous usually with a group. Rally the troops for a favorite cause – they will bow to your command -maybe not quite, but they should be more agreeable than usual. Sort of like those fish (pike?) that don’t wait to be caught, they just jump into your boat. I personally feel that people want to be useful, to make a difference. This is the perfect weekend to herd  a team in the right direction.

Earthy Capricorn and Airy Aquarius – make it work. Have a terrific weekend!


Work or Revolt? Weekend Moon in Capricorn, then Aquarius

Most of the weekend belongs to an ambitious, focused Capricorn Moon. Ruled by Saturn, the planet of boundaries and life lessons (not always fun, but can be maturing) use this sign’s serious, organized and authoritarian energy to  accomplish, complete and be in charge. On Sunday night, January 22, 2012,there will be change when the Moon moves into the next sign, friendly, unpredictable Aquarius.

The Sun is already in the 11th sign of the Zodiac and when the Moon is visiting too, the Moon is called “New”. The 10 or so days following a New Moon is a great time to start a project, begin a class, create a masterpiece, etc. Power and possibilities for this Uranus ruled Air sign usually involves something to do with groups, or, something revolutionary- quite often both at the same time. Regardless, it will speak to Aquarian independence and love of the different.

Have a terrific weekend!

FYI: New Moon in Aquarius arrives on Sunday, 11:39PM January 22, 2012 (PAC) / 2:39AM January 23, 2012 (EST).


Here Comes the Sun * Aquarius, 1/20/12 – Be Original!

The symbol for the 11th sign of the Zodiac is the “Water Bearer”, don’t be confused, Aquarius is definitely an Air sign ruled by the unpredictable, unconventional, undeniably radical Uranus. It’s all about independence, resentment for all “ties that bind”, sudden changes of direction and thinking “outside of the box”.  What a way to start the New Year!

Aquarians tend to be more intellectual than emotional, with a stubborn streak (it is one of three “Fixed” signs of the Zodiac, along with Taurus and Scorpio).  This determination often shows up when it involves tackling group issues. Their concern for others is authentic – they care, they are involved and they persevere to find resolutions to problems that touch the community. Contributing to the universe is a given.

Take advantage of this energy regardless of your own Zodiac sign. Fill in some of that blank 2012 calendar with plans for purposeful action  – find a cause, volunteer, organize a neighborhood, leave a place better than you how found it. Enjoy people, support them, inspire and whip them into shape! Make a difference.

Risking, being on the edge, or ledge, is often part of the Aquarian way of being in the world – sounds intense, but it’s done with humor. Their essence is great to spread around especially when there are important, life changing concerns to address. If you’re intent upon enrolling people into saving the world, you might as well have fun doing it.

Astrology: Weekend Full Moon in Ambitious Capricorn,Then Surprising Aquarius 7/15

On Friday July 15th, the Sun is in Cancer, the Moon is lit up in the opposite sign, Capricorn– it’s that Full Moon time again! This matters to us why? Contrary to popular folklore, a round Moon is not a time for a werewolf/Vampire reveal, but it is a good time to tap into its energy. 

The Zodiac sign that houses the “Full” lunar orb has its traits and characteristics heightened for a few weeks. Saturn ruled Capricorn has ambitious leanings. It’s about status, authority and work. Career means what – to you? Success means what – to you?  Are your actions producing results? However, if there are any radical changes that need to be handled, wait until the Moon Phase is “New” on July 30th. (A New Moon works well for beginnings.)

Later that same afternoon, 1:40PM Pacific / 4:30PM Eastern, the Moon moves into Uranus ruled, freedom loving Aquarius. A definite change of mood. The 11th sign of the Zodiac is graciously service oriented, but unconventional, innovative and unwilling to conform. Prepare to say “I’m surprised” a few times and then think about it.

Have a marvelous weekend!
