Scorpio Full Moon April 26

Scorpio Full Moon


April 26, 8:31pm PDT 




During 2021 Saturn squares Uranus three times.  The first aspect was  on Feb 17.  The next aspect is on June 14 and then the final round is on December 23.      The energy of these two planets will be felt all year and it highlights areas that need change and areas that are stuck.   Those of us with planets between 7 and 13 degrees of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio are feeling this tension in a real, deep, rumble our gut ways.   



The Full moon at 7 degrees Scorpio and Taurus is right in the center of this tension.   There will no doubt be stories in the world that speak to things that need to be jettisoned (Uranus) and new things that need structure and support (Saturn). 



The moon in Scorpio has questions about power:    Where’s the power?  Who has it?  Who is abusing it?  Where’s my power?  Who is ignoring their power?   Am I  dismissing  my power?   The Sun in Taurus on the other side of the moon, holds on tight for fear of losing something that maybe feels like power but is perhaps something else.   Is it power from a different era calcified into a comfortable status quo?    



With Uranus on top of the Sun, the accent is on an abrupt letting go and a fast pivot.     History is filled with stories of people making a quick decision that changed the course of their life or the lives of people around them.    



There is something about this full moon that feels like everyone is looking at a man in 1909 with a beautiful horse and gorgeous carriage.   He stands there proud answering questions about the horse and carriage and then coming up behind him is a man in a Model T.  Honk. Honk.     Whatever he spent on that horse and carriage may be obsolete.    Where is there something obsolete in our life that needs to be ditched?  Or is it a thinking?   



The moon trines Mars in Cancer and the Sun sextiles Mars in Cancer.    Finding power is directing related to our gut.     Mars is not slow, he moves fast to protect, to slay, to forge, to get somewhere or get something done.    Mars is the warrior and in Cancer he is a warrior for our family or clan.    Saturn in Aquarius is support for and from the community.  Are you connected to your community?   How can you strengthen that connection?   Uranus in Taurus on the Sun reminds us we can do something that is solid and build it from the ground up that is new, fresh and innovative.     Uranus is shaking things up, on the chart and Pluto stations retrograde on the Full moon cycle which might present  an earthquake  in the 3 day cycle especially.   



This is the full moon to go deep and find areas that need your power.  Don’t get caught up in power tripping or power trippers, that would be a missed opportunity of this signfigant full moon.       



Who Will Win At The Oscars 2021?

Oscars 2021 astrology

Last year, the Oscars were held early on February 9, 2020 apparently in an attempt to shake up the lengthy, expensive campaigns. Maybe they knew something we didn’t?! as this obviously meant the virus wasn’t mainstream news by then.

It did mean that for the first time the Oscars wasn’t taking place during Pisces season, which is the perfect timing for the glamour & glitz of the movies.

This year, the Oscars is happening later than usual in Taurus season, which doesn’t seem quite right but there we are. The big event will reportedly happen in two venues, not one and some of the ceremony will be outdoors. There’ll be a London broadcast hub for the Brit nominees and similar for other countries but they are going to limit Zoom speeches/presentations.

Obviously, most of the movies up for honours were viewed on streaming platforms rather than in cinemas this year. I haven’t seen any of them this year which is unusual. Whether this influences my excellent prediction record remains to be seen.

As, the Arts have been hit badly by the virus/lockdowns, I think it’s fantastic that the Oscars are happening. As they say in showbiz, ‘the show must go on‘.

Oscars’ Astrology

It’s always worth taking a quick look at the symbolism of the astrology for the start of the Oscars’. Wherever you find Jupiter, the biggest & best planet, is important as Jupiter transits promise success.

Aquarius is the star sign of the moment and anyone with key planets/angles on or around 27 Aquarius could do well.

Taurus dominates the chart with the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Uranus all in the sign of the bull. Yet, note Mars on the Midheaven (success point) in Cancer, the most elevated planet in the chart. Mars could indicate a strong Oscars’ season for Aries & Scorpio, Mars’ signs of rulership. It may give a nod to the themes to watch out for – see Best Film below.

The Saturn-Uranus square is being triggered during the weekend by the inner planets so perhaps this will show as technology glitches. And, no doubt some political views on what’s happening around the world.

On with the show…

Best Supporting Actress

  • Maria Bakalova (b. June 4 1996) – Sun Gemini, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm
  • Glenn Close (b. March 19, 1947) – Sun Pisces, Hillbilly Elegy
  • Olivia Colman (b. January 30, 1974) – Sun Aquarius, The Father
  • Amanda Seyfried (b. December 3, 1985) – Sun Sagittarius, Mank
  • Youn Yuh-Jung (b. June 19, 1947) – Sun Gemini, Minari

No times of birth for any of the actresses above, apart from Glenn Close. Two of the actresses are having their Jupiter Return years, always hopeful for a win – Olivia Colman (Jupiter 21 Aquarius) and Amanda Seyfried (Jupiter 12 Aquarius).

Olivia Colman won the Oscar for Best Actress two years ago in 2019 and pushed out the favourite Glenn Close, who has been nominated 8 times but never won. Could it be a repeat scenario? Very possibly. as Olivia also has Mercury at 24 Aquarius, so Jupiter is unusually active for her this year.

However, Glenn Close has her Moon at 23 Aquarius, which we know as she has a timed chart, so Aquarius rules in this category.

I wouldn’t, however, count out Youn Yuh-Jung who won the Bafta in this category. She may be a Gemini but she was born on a Sun-Uranus conjunction and Uranus is Aquarius’ planet. Plus, her Moon may be in early degrees Cancer, which would put it on the Midheaven of the Oscar’s chart.

Astrologer’s Choice: Without a time of birth, I can’t go for Youn Yuh-Jung, who I feel will win it. From an astrology viewpoint, I’m going for Olivia Colman (unless Glenn Close’s isn’t allowed to go home trophy-less again!)

Best Supporting Actor

  • Sacha Baron Cohen (b. October 13, 1971) Sun Libra, The Trial of the Chicago 7
  • Daniel Kaluuya (b. May 8 1981) – Sun Taurus, Judas and the Black Messiah
  • Leslie Odom Jr (b. August 6 1981) – Sun Leo, One Night in Miami
  • Paul Raci (b. April 7 1948) – Sun Aries, Sound of Metal
  • LaKeith Stanfield (b. August 12 1991) – Sun Leo, Judas and the Black Messiah

No times of birth for any of the above actors making it super difficult to find a winner via astrology. Maybe the Sun Aries gets a heads-up because of Mars on the Midheaven of the Oscars’ chart. Paul Raci also has his north node at 15 Taurus so the Venus/Mercury conjunction lights up the karmic point in his chart.

Sacha Baron Cohen was born on a Sun-Uranus conjunction and his Mars is at 18 Aquarius, so there’s a slight nod towards the Aquarius theme.

Two of the actors, Leslie Odom Jr and Daniel Kaluuya have Mars in Cancer and most strikingly for Daniel, his Mars is at 5 Cancer and exactly conjunct the Midheaven of the Oscars’ chart.

Astrologer’s Choice: Not great astrology to choose from but maybe the Mars’ signature might be enough for Daniel Kaluuya to mirror his Bafta win.

Best Actress

  • Viola Davis (b. August 11 1965) – Sun Leo, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
  • Andra Day (b. December 30 1984) – Sun Capricorn, The United States vs. Billie Holiday
  • Vanessa Kirby (b. April 18 1988) – Sun Aries, Pieces of a Woman
  • Frances McDormand (b. June 23 1957) – Sun Cancer, Nomadland
  • Carey Mulligan (b. May 28 1985) – Sun Gemini, Promising Young Woman

Again, no times of birth for any of the actresses. Four of them have Aquarius planets – Viola Davis – Moon Aquarius (no degree because of no birth time); Andra Day – Venus 24 Aquarius – nice; Vanessa Kirby – Mars 7 Aquarius; Carey Mulligan – Jupiter 16 Aquarius – her Jupiter Return year.

The only one who doesn’t is Frances McDormand who won the Bafta. Her Sun is at 1 Cancer so Mars is slap bang on it. Plus, she has her Moon in Taurus but we don’t know the degree because no time of birth! If it’s at 9-10 Taurus and triggered by Uranus, that’s a win in my book.

Astrologer’s Choice: I think this category is between Frances McDormand and Carey Mulligan. I think Carey might just sneak it.

Best Actor

  • Riz Ahmed (b. December 1 1982) – Sun Sagittarius, Sound of Metal
  • Chadwick Boseman (b. November 29 1976) – Sun Sagittarius, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
  • Anthony Hopkins (b. December 31 1937) – Sun Capricorn, The Father
  • Gary Oldman (b. March 21 1958) – Sun Aries, Mank
  • Steven Yeun (b. December 21 1983) – Sun Sagittarius, Minari

Two times of birth in this category – Anthony Hopkins and Gary Oldman. Plus, three Sagittarians. Out of those three, Riz Ahmed was born on a Sun/Uranus conjunction, the best signature for the Oscars’ chart.

Gary Oldman is a Sun Aries and has two planets in Aquarius, Venus & Mars but not within orb of Jupiter. Yet, the ‘oldie’, Anthony Hopkins is having his Uranus Return – bonkers! – yes, his Uranus is at 9 Taurus.

The favourite is Chadwick Boseman to win posthumously as he sadly passed away last year. Without a time of birth, there’s nothing to back that up in the astrology.

Astrologer’s Choice: I have to go for Anthony Hopkins on his Uranus Return!

Best Director

  • Thomas Vinterberg (b. May 19 1969) – Sun Taurus, Another Round
  • David Fincher (b. August 28 1962) – Sun Virgo, Mank
  • Lee Isaac Chung (b. October 19 1978) – Sun Libra, Minari
  • Chloé Zhao (b. March 31 1982) – Sun Aries, Nomadland
  • Emerald Fennell (b. October 1 1985) – Sun Libra, Promising Young Woman

Two women in this category – hoorah! The last and only time a woman won Best Director was 2010 – Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker.

I’m itching for a woman to win again and they both have a great chance. Of the three male directors, David Fincher’s astrology looks promising. It’s his second Saturn Return year – Saturn at 6 Aquarius and his Mars is at 4 Cancer.

Emerald Fennell has her Jupiter Return year – always great news – and her Jupiter is at 7 Aquarius. Yet, it’s Chloe Zhao, the favourite who zings nicely with the Oscar’s chart. A Sun Aries, her Moon probably in Cancer and she has Venus at 23 Aquarius so Jupiter’s her friend.

Astrologer’s Choice: No times of birth for any of the five directors but I’m willing Chloe Zhao to be the second woman to win Best Director.

Best Picture

  • The Father
  • Judas and the Black Messiah
  • Mank
  • Minari
  • Nomadland
  • Promising Young Woman
  • Sound of Metal
  • The Trial of the Chicago 7

Mars in Cancer on the Midheaven is the stand-out signature of the chart, so you’re looking for family themes, homes, etc. You could probably make a case for some of the other movies as an astrological symbol doesn’t mean just one thing – it could also be about race, Cancer being the clan, the tribe.

As I haven’t watched any of the movies – not great! – I’m having to rely on internet synopses. I like them in this order, 1. Nomadland, 2. Minari and 3. The Trial of the Chicago 7.

Full Moon Scorpio: Super Pink Moon

FULL MOON [7 Scorpio 06]

April 27 2021 (04:32 GMT+1))

The next Full Moon falls in Scorpio and Full Moon energy is already kicking in. It’s gearing up to be a highly-charged weekend – keep reading to find out why.

This is the first of three Super Moons in a row, all of which have super cosmic names. This one is ‘Super Pink Moon‘ on April 27th, then comes ‘Super Flower Blood Moon Eclipse‘ on May 26th and finally ‘Super Strawberry Moon‘ on June 24th.

These are the closest Full Moons to earth this year and if you love gazing at the Moon, you know how stunning a Full Moon can be. The best time to bask in the beauty of these Super Moons is just after moonrise.

Full Moon Energy

The Moon reaches its peak during the Full Moon phase. Full Moons are a time when emotions are heightened and important matters can be brought to completion. If you like to work with the energy of the moon, this is the time to look at what you want to release and let go of.

Full Moons are often linked to pregnancy and giving birth. They are a time of celebration, also clarity when the light of the Full Moon shines brightly. Trust your female intuition and tap into your witchy knowingness.

Full Moon Scorpio

This is important because during this Full Moon, the Moon is in the deep & dark water sign, Scorpio, linked to healing, regeneration & transformation.

Scorpio rules sex, money, death & rebirth and all things taboo. It’s about the psyche and what’s hidden. Scorpio’s keyword is power, whether you use it for good or bad effect. We’re hanging out in the underworld, the night world when we’re in Scorpio’s domain.

In Scorpio, you can enter into the dark, untouched places releasing emotions that have been hidden away or ignored. You encounter the shadow side of life. By digging deep, you find the part of yourself that’s fearless, authentic and real.

This is not always a comfortable place to be. Yet, if you are a Scorpio or have Scorpio planets in your chart, you may already know that a journey through the underworld can unearth hidden riches.

When you explore and embrace all of life, the dark as well as the light, you often emerge wiser and stronger for the experience.

Pluto Retrograde

Pluto is co-ruler of Scorpio and turns retrograde at 26 Capricorn on the same day as the Full Moon. This adds intensity to the Full Moon picture.

Pluto’s move through Capricorn since 2008 has been breaking down established structures, urging us to change the way we do business, govern, lead, use power. It’s brought corruption into world governments, as Pluto is linked to the underworld.

Pluto’s shift of direction turns your attention inwards and backwards. Let go of things that aren’t working out, move away from anything or anyone toxic in your life. Ditch old emotions and habits that no longer serve you.

Cycle of Life & Death

The cycle of life and death is clearly shown through the opposite signs of Taurus and Scorpio. During this Full Moon, the Sun is in the earth sign Taurus linked to nature and growth and the Moon is in the water sign Scorpio linked to death, also rebirth. Regeneration, compost, the eternal cycle of life and death which is never-ending.

The Full Moon in Scorpio can highlight where you need to be healed and where best to channel your own healing abilities. You might uncover issues around power or where you feel powerless. You might discover where you’re in control and where you can tap into your inner power to accomplish incredible feats.

This is the perfect opportunity to make an important decision and trust your intuition in doing so. At the Full Moon it’s about doing what “feels” right rather than what you think you should be doing. Although, ideally it’s a time to balance head and heart. Be confident and stand strong in your power.

The Full Moon of Awakening

There’s another significant aspect to this Full Moon which comes from the planet Uranus. Uranus is currently in earth sign Taurus and is close to the Sun in Taurus during the Full Moon.

Uranus makes conjunctions to the inner planets on the following dates: Venus – 23rd April; Mercury – 24th April & the Sun – 30th April. The Full Moon on April 27th is the peak of this planetary energy.

Uranus words are change, revolution, rebellion, awakening, enlightenment, surprise, invention, innovation. The planet of upheaval in earth sign Taurus is the earth shaker.

As Taurus is the star sign that rules money, watch out for some big swings on the financial stage during this Full Moon. There are no guarantees with Uranus as it’s either an upward swing or a downward trajectory – rarely stable.

Saturn Square Uranus

Yet, it’s not just about Uranus during this Full Moon because Saturn and Uranus remain in square aspect throughout 2021.

There are key dates when they perfect their clash or conflict – February 17th, June 14th & December 24th. They are, however, at loggerheads all year – this is the major aspect of 2021 and it’s being triggered right now.

You can look at this symbolism in different ways as a symbol never just means one thing. Saturn is the ruler, the authorities, the government; Uranus is impulse, the rebel, the urge for freedom.

Currently, Saturn is stronger in its sign of rulership Aquarius. Around the world, governments are declaring new rules & regulations and exerting control.

There’s always a danger of fascism when Saturn is in Aquarius, the sign of the collective. You only need to look back to 1933 to see what’s possible when Saturn is here. Look around the world and freedom is under threat in many countries.

One way the Saturn-Uranus square is playing out is the freedom movement & anti-vaxxers (Uranus) up against the rest of society & the governments (Saturn Aquarius).

It may be no coincidence there’s to be a march ‘Unite For Freedom‘ on April 24th in London tapping in to the Uranian planetary energy. You may know of more protests happening around the world this weekend.

You could say that this clash also pits the scientific establishments (Saturn Aquarius) against a different kind of truth and knowingness, one that’s inherent within the Earth (Taurus) and that our ancestors knew all about.

Astrology, animism and various other religions and beliefs were evident pre-science. Human beings were constantly listening to the world, to nature. They cared for the Earth that nurtured and cared for them in return.

The danger with Uranus in Taurus is that Uranus splits off and we become detached and disconnected from Mother Earth, the planet we live on. Technology takes over and we forget our interconnectedness with the universe. Fear kicks in (Saturn) and we lose our innate wisdom and inner knowledge.

Football Rules

Looking ahead to this Full Moon, it was obvious this was going to be a major event, from a financial perspective and with regard to different factions clashing. Or, perhaps it will play out in other ways we don’t yet know about.

One way that this strong planetary energy has shown itself in the world is via football. On April 18th, it was announced there would be a Super League – 12 top teams playing their own elite league – an initiative decided by top clubs and their owners, basically to make more money.

Saturn is the people at the top, the big boys, the fat cats – there seemed to be no negotiation around their decision, it was final.

What they didn’t expect was the backlash from the fans who were rightly outraged across the board. This is Uranus’ energy strong and true, people power, fighting back against rules & regulations that don’t serve the greater good.

There were so many fans who protested against the Super League, along with some of the players and managers, celebrity voices, even FIFA that, come April 20th, the whole deal crashed.

That’s people power for you and a strong showing of what’s possible with this square aspect and how Uranus can dominate that authoritarian Saturn in its sign of rulership Aquarius.

It’s going to be an interesting year and we may discover more about what’s possible during this Full Moon, a Super Pink Moon, in Scorpio.

What Does It Mean For You

Here are the areas highlighted by this Full Moon. Read your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign if you know it:

  • Aries – personal finances, possessions, self-worth  other peoples’ money, money owed
  • Taurus – image, self-identity, personal goals  relationships, contracts, enemies
  • Gemini – retreat, secrets, self-undoing  work, service, health
  • Cancer – friends, groups, society  children, creativity, romance
  • Leo – career, status, responsibility  home, family, past
  • Virgo – travel, study, exploration  communication, neighbours, siblings
  • Libra – other peoples’ money, money owed  personal finances, possessions, self-worth
  • Scorpio – relationships, contracts, enemies  image, self-identity, personal goals
  •  Sagittarius – work, service, health  retreat, secrets, self-undoing
  •  Capricorn – children, creativity, romance  friends, groups, society
  • Aquarius – home, family, past  career, status, responsibility
  • Pisces – communication, neighbours, siblings, local neighbourhood  travel, study, exploration

Remember that the Full Moon is an opposition so it’s about balancing the different areas of your life, how you allow them to complement each other and work together in unison, rather than create division or enmity.

Wishing you a wonderfully safe & happy Super Full Pink Moon

Astrology of This Week : April 19 – 25





First Quarter Moon 


April 19, 2021 


11:58pm PDT





Focus on:  What actions are you taking that are born from strength?   What actions are you taking that speak to creativity?   What actions are you taking that are bold and energetic?   Where are you being a big shot?  How can you run a victory lap on something you have accomplished?  Go for it. 




Special Note


4/23 Mars enters Cancer





Gibbous Moon


April 23, 2021


2:44pm PDT 






We refine our information.  We pick and choose, we discriminate, and we organize to be ‘Virgo’ like.  We sort through details.  Have we missed something?  How are we sifting through the information?  Go back and make sure something hasn’t been neglected.  Refine our actions.  



Focus on:  How are you sorting your schedule?  How are your daily actions speaking to what you want in this coming year?   Where do you need to stop down and look at the details?  How do you need to tidy up your health?   What dots are you making and t s that you are slashing? 




Special focus


4/23: Mercury conjunct Uranus.  Nothing like an odd, weird conversation and thinking to make a day interesting.   


4/24: Venus square Saturn.  Money/resources/values feel strained.  Wanting to hang on when novelty may need to be included. 


4/25: Mercury square Saturn.  Thinking is tough, narrowed, feels strained.  How to bring in originality when feeling stuck is important. 


4/25: Mercury conjunction Venus.  Values are in sync with thinking.  Perhaps values have morphed in the last week and need a new thought process.  




Pluto Stations Retrograde: April 27





Pluto Retrograde 



April 27, 2021


1:01pm PDT 


26 Capricorn 48



Station Direct 


October 6, 2021


11:28am PDT


24 Capricorn 19 




Every year Pluto spends five months retrograde.   On April 27 Pluto will station retrograde where it will transit back from 26 degrees of Capricorn back to 24 degrees.   For those people who have planets between 24-27 degrees of; Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra you have been dealing with the dental drill that is Pluto for the last couple years.   Finding your power has been difficult, no doubt, while you have been asked to shed what no longer works.  



For those of us in the United States this is the last retrograde before the USA has its Pluto return on Feb 21, 2022. No human can ever live long enough to personally experience a Pluto return since it takes over 250 years for Pluto to return to where it was at ‘birth’.    Most nations in the world history do not exist long enough to even experience a Pluto return.  Between coups and revolutions constitutions of nations will change and with the change there is a new Pluto placement in the chart.  The United States ‘birth’ is July 4, 1776 and Pluto will be exactly where it was on that date next February.    



For an idea what it looks like when a nation experiences a Pluto return, astrologers look at  The Roman Empire and The British empire for what happened to them during their Pluto returns.    The astrologer Ray Grasse has written about Pluto Return.  If you give it a read, you will see how other nations were impacted.   It is also clear in the USA that we have been influenced by Pluto’s growing intensity as it gets closer and closer to the 27 Capricorn 33 degree.   



Last year during the Pluto retrograde (April 25 – October 4) it showed us a lot of the tension that needed focus.    Just in the first month there was plenty of action:  On April 27, the USA passed the one millionth confirmed case of Covid.  On May 8, USA unemployment hit 14.7 %  and on May 25, George Floyd was killed.  During the summer there were protests,  slave owner statues were removed.   NASCAR banned the Confederate flags at their races. We were asked to look backwards at our history.   And then in one weekend, Thunderstorms triggered hundreds of forest fires  in California as a record- breaking heat wave taxed the power grid.   Power grids would come up again six months later in Texas.   What is our power infrastructure?  Could anything more than power grids speak to the power of Pluto in Capricorn?     Then on August 16, Death Valley recorded 130 degrees the highest temperature on Earth in 100 years.    George Floyd was certainly critical to a lot of the activity in the summer,  but the climate change was very critical to the Pluto in Capricorn era.  When there was the ‘Cardinal Climax’ earlier into the Pluto transit Capricorn I kept seeing signs of climate change events near critical dates such as huge ice sheets breaking off and melting.   I wrote then that I thought climate change would be THE issue when Pluto exited Capricorn.   I still believe this will turn out to be accurate.   



The Pluto retrograde is of course not the only reason for the 2020 events, Saturn and Pluto conjunction from earlier in the year spoke to some of the tension along with Mars who did a number for most of the year.   But still with Pluto we take a moment as we ponder what we want going forward.   It is a transformative period for the USA and we should not be surprised if more issues are exposed during this retrograde.   Once this retrograde completes, gentlemen start your engines as we head to the Pluto Return date in February.    Perhaps this Pluto retrograde cycle we will dust ourselves off admit our mistakes and lean into:  “Know better, Do Better.” 


The Queen & Her Prince

Prince Philip, the Queen, Moon-Neptune

It was announced today, April 9, 2021, that Prince Philip died peacefully this morning, a couple of months shy of his 100 year birthday. He was born on June 10, 1921.

It’s an extraordinary age and an extraordinarily long union and marriage with Queen Elizabeth. They met in 1939 and had known one another for 82 years. They had been married for 73 years. Some of us are lucky to reach the age of their marriage let alone their epic union.


So, what held these two extraordinary individuals together for so long. In classic sun sign compatibility, they were an odd pair – Sun Taurus (Queen), Sun Gemini (Philip).

Taurus is steady and stable and loves nature and all things country. While, Gemini is flighty and fickle and loves variety in life and the buzz of the city.

Yet, they remained together for a very, very long time. What may have helped is that they both had Capricorn rising, so Saturn was their ruling planet – duty & responsibility.

Moon Leo

Looking at the key synastry between their charts, it’s all about the Moon. They both have Cancer, the family sign, on their Descendant, the relationship point on the chart. Therefore, they are both looking for someone who holds family dear to their heart.

In both cases, the Moon was in Leo when they were born, the regal sign. In Philip’s case, he ended up with a royal partner and in the Queen’s case, she ended up with a man who was destined for royalty, like it or not.

Rather remarkably, if you look at the key connection between both their birth charts, it’s a Moon-Neptune conjunction that works both ways. The Queen’s Moon is at 12 Leo, Philip’s Neptune at 11 Leo. Philip’s Moon is at 22 Leo, the Queen’s Neptune at 22 Leo.

This is quite extraordinary synastry – there’s that word again, extraordinary. And, it had to be didn’t it for their relationship to survive so long with two obviously very different characters – if you haven’t watched The Crown, check it out.

Moon-Neptune conjunctions in synastry can be incredibly romantic or magical or destined or meant to be. It smacks of a fairy-tale marriage.

Yet, there’s a flip side which is to have your needs met never quite materialises or what you need or what gives you comfort always remains a little bit elusive.

It’s an idealistic combination and there’s a nod towards serving the greater good rather than getting your own needs met.

I do love that connection though between the two of them – and when you know someone for 82 years!!!! – yes, it’s worth that many exclamation marks, how remarkable was their connection.

Uranus Return

The Queen & Prince Philip were in each other’s lives for almost a whole Uranus Return, which lasts for 84 years. Impulsive Uranus was in Taurus in 1939, the year they met and it’s in Taurus once again as Philip leaves the Queen. It’s going to be a life-changing epoch for her.

This week balsamic moon and the Aries new moon on Sunday.




This week is the final week of the Pisces Lunar Month that launched on March 13.   The 9th is a bit tough.  Thoughts and words could be rushed and spirited and energy could feel low or feel like it has no place to land.

On April  11 at 7:30pm PDT Aries New Moon launches and the energy will be way different.   More energized, more focused, more ‘on it doggone it’.   Feel the energy shift and consider what you want for the astrological new lunar year.   We will make our Treasure Maps!




Balsamic Moon Phase



April 7,2021


8:08pm PDT      



Balsamic:   We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new.  




Focus on How are you releasing victimhood?  How are you releasing confusion?  How are you releasing overly sentimentality?  





4/9: Mercury conjunction Chiron.  Thoughts about being independent, going own way. Growth in the thinking and communication. 


4/9: Mars square Neptune.  Actions based on ‘faith’ may be shaky.   Finding deeper connections to spirituality may be helpful.
