The new moon in Virgo takes place early in the morning, on Friday, August 30th. I expect a significant impact, considering the sun and moon will be conjunct, Mercury, Venus and Mars. Note that this array includes all the personal planets … Read More…
So much for that (re writing about Full Moon). It is already a week later, the waning Moon is now in its last quarter, and the effects of that powerful Full Moon are beginning to fade.
Did you get to see it? This was a super moon (closer to the earth) looking luscious and ripe as it hung low in the sky. I went for a beautiful Moonlit walk enjoying its radiant beauty.
One of the things I love about Astrology is how it reveals the cyclical nature of life and time. Each year the planets spin and dance around the Sun, the Moon spins and dances around the earth, and all their energetic exchanges create patterns, energy signatures and archetypes of deep mystery and meaning that we can only try to understand.
“Life is an unending circular path it seems, a spiral, or sometimes a labyrinth full of twists and turns. The clear path ahead is not always visible. Looking backwards, we see patterns, find the flow, see a river or a road with stages along the way.” Jennifer Boire, Inner Wisdom Guide, SoulCollage Facilitator
Last week’s Full Moon in Aquarius spoke to the new era we are entering, and the cosmic energies that are shifting and morphing into something cometely different from what has gone before. Aquarius is about finding and expressing our true individuality – then finding our place within the greater collective. Aquarians are unique and quirky out-of-the -box thinkers, which makes them very excepting of diversity.
Aquarians need a lot of personal freedom – they are not fitter-inners or nine-to-fivers (unless other planets indicate otherwise). While the Leo Sun wants us to shine our light into the world – Aquarius asks us to make room for others to shine their light as well.
The overall message is about finding our own unique voice – and using it to contribute to the highest good.
And that we are all in this together.
Mars – planet of action and aggression – strongly influenced the Full Moon – bringing out the freedom fighter in us. Mars in Aquarius could have a bit of a chip on it shoulder – but at its best – has us finding and standing up for righteous causes. And yet because things have become so polarized – it is imperative that we maintain our sense of equanimity in the midst of so many highly charged situations.
While Aquarius helps us with detachment, the Sun in Virgo in a few days will bring us lessons around discernment, and the need to separate out what is ours and what is not.
Right now, the Moon in restless, fiery Aries can feel irritated or reckless, and prone to knee jerk reactions. It’s great energy for pushing through obstacles to get er done – just be careful to stay centered and not overdo!
Luckily, thanks to the presence of Sun Venus Jupiter at the Full Moon- we’ve had an influx of highly positive vibrations to smooth out whatever situations Mars or Moon in Aries gets us into.
“Hope is impossible to drown. Just when you think it has sunk to the bottom, up it pops in another location.” – Margaret Dulaney
Sun and Venus shining so much Love and Light on us all reminds of our true nature – and that we are all in this together.
Yes, these are stressful times containing many conflicts and challenges trying to get our conscious attention , and yet which can, at their best, activate powerful urges for self-transformation and regeneration and will help us move into the new age.
Pluto and Saturn on the Southern Collective Destiny Point represent a karmic reckoning.
Many are getting caught up in extreme behaviors, as difficult or triggering events bring up issues around power and control or provoke conflicts with other people. If you are feeling trapped in unconscious patterns or bumping into countless obstacles in the outer world, Pluto will reveal the deeper meaning and significance of these challenges.
Ultimately, everyone and everything is a mirror showing us what we need to work on in ourself. The forces shaking and breaking us down are just trying to wake us up.
Neptune in Pisces represents the true unity that connects us at our core, reminding us that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. It’s easy to forget that in the midst of so much chaos and upheaval. One thing I say to myself every day is ‘Focus on the good.’ Know the Good. Know that despite appearances – the cup is not half-empty – it is half-full! In fact – on the truest level – it is full to overflowing. Focus in that!
As the Leo stellium shifts to Virgo this week, it’s good to remember that it’s still summer. Whew! I’m practically elderly and I still get the back-to-school jimmies. Venus conjoins Juno at the end of Leo on Monday. It’s possible … Read More…
Quinten Tarantino’s latest movie “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” created a serious controversy about Tarantino’s portrayal of Bruce Lee as an arrogant, blowhard buffoon in the film.
Bruce Lee’s daughter: Shannon Lee and millions of fans are deeply disappointed and angry about the way Lee was degraded in the movie and by Tarantino’s response “Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy” as an explanation for it.
Bruce, who was a Sagittarius Sun and a Sagittarius Rising, was beside his martial arts widespread known for his teachings and philosophy.
I knew there was a serious quarrel coming when I saw Lilith in Pisces (movies) moving into her square with Jupiter (philosopher, teacher), I just didn’t see this one coming.
The backslash, however, is huge for Tarantino who has the Pluto/Saturn conjunction on top of his South Node in straight opposition to Bruce’s Vertex into the 8th house.
Bruce’s 8th house Pluto doesn’t make it any easier on Tarantino either, hitting Tarantino’s Mars in conjunction from the grave, so to speak. That’s a kick-ass position to have in synastry and not a joke.
Something tells me this isn’t over yet: the comments underneath the above article alone, are a clear sign the collective (the sign of Pisces, the 12th house & Neptune), is not going to put up with this by Tarantino. Meanwhile: Lilith is moving ‘nice and easy’ forward to her fusion with Neptune in Pisces.
Will be continued….

Excerpt from Patreon – …Venus enters Virgo on August 21. Money management tends to become healthier under Virgo’s analytic eye and it’s easier to rein in spending – perhaps a necessity after Leo’s lavish tastes! In relationships, it’s the little things that count, like making your partner’s lunch or doing one of their chores. It’s about showing someone you love them through thoughtful actions. Love is a verb in this practical sign. During this transit, we find pleasure in helping others. We may devote more time to our work or find a practical way of helping a cause close to our hearts in our spare time. The shadow side of this transit manifests however when low levels of self-esteem means we negate our own needs, doing more and more for others to be liked, loved or appreciated. Helpfulness is a lovely trait and can be very fulfilling – but not if you feel invisible or unworthy as a result. Venus will stay in Virgo until September 14.
