Astrology of the Full Wolf Moon 1/1/2018 at 11˚ Cancer

Astrology of the Full Wolf Moon 1/1/2018 (2nd in some parts of the world) at 11˚ Cancer Time to howl at the Moon On New Year’s Day here in the USA’s wonderful West (it will be on the 2nd on the East Coast and beyond), there is a deeply emotional and powerful Full Moon. And it’s all the 1’s and 11’s. First day of the first month in a universal 11/2 year at 11˚ and 37’ — and 3+ 7 = 1. So, that’s a 1/1/11 at 11.1. And the Full Moon is aspecting Neptune in Pisces at 11˚. And it’s a Supermoon. And she is in her own sign, Cancer, adding to the power. Holy guacamole! What a way to start the calendar year!. Cancer is a water sign and is nurturing, sensitive, responsive, insecure and moody. The exact trine to Neptune in Pisces bringing in psychic sensitivity, mysticism imagination, more hypersensitivity and escapism. A wide trine to Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio adding emotional depth and complexity, obsession, and intensity to the alchemic pot. Also in the crucible of this Full Moon is the fact that a Full moon IS an opposition and this one is opposite to, not only the Sun in Capricorn, but also Venus, Lilith, Saturn and Pluto. The divine feminine presence of Venus and Lilith sandwiched between the core energy of the Sun, the transformative presence of Pluto and the mastery of Saturn in his own sign. Mix this all in the alchemical crucible of astrology and this gives us a POWERFUL kite configuration with the focal planet of the Kite being the Sun and it’s close...
The Power of Scorpio

The Power of Scorpio

We probably all know by now that we are in Mercury Retrograde. In fact I wrote about it in Mercury Retrograde and First World Problems. In Scorpio this is powerful and deep and the Scorpio energy is about to get stronger so I thought it was time to write about the power of Scorpio generally and how to manage and benefit from this energy.   Later today (22nd October 2013) the sun will move into Scorpio shining it’s light on this powerful energy. We’ll have Sun, North Node of Fate, Saturn and Mercury all in this powerful water sign. And then, on Nov 3 we also have a Solar Eclipse at 11 degrees Scorpio. Added to this, Scorpios ruler Pluto is in a powerful square with Uranus in Aries. I’ll go more into what each of these means over time in my weekly video reports that I email out to my subscribers so if you want even more information about this and other upcoming energies sign up now over on the right!   As I said in my previous post we are being asked to have some really deep, deep reflection time right now. But reflect on what?   Enough of the astrology and more about the feeling because Scorpio IS a water sign and is ALL about feeling.   Scorpio energy is about deeply bonded relationships. It’s about power and powerlessness. It’s passion and resourcefulness. It’s intensity and magnetism. It’s manipulation and obsession. It’s jealousy and loyalty. Scorpio is deeply sensitive and intuitive. Scorpio is secretive and private.   Scorpio is the realm of the deep psyche, therapy,...

Harnessing Cosmic Energies or Doom and Gloom?

I was inspired to talk about my approach to astrology. Many see astrology as doom and gloom and that many follow their ‘stars’ like puppets. They believe that if the stars say it’s going to be a bad day then it will be. I prefer to talk about harnessing energies. This topic first formed in my mind after the reaction to my last blog post Travel and Mercury Retrograde: Who Thought That Was A Good Idea. So many people seemed sorry for me!! Either I’m really not very funny or I painted a bleak picture. So I would like to expand. I looked upon the things that happened on my trip as yes, a manifestion of the retrograde, but also as a sign that I was not working with the energies. I was not reflecting and reviewing certain areas of my life. Non of the incidents were REALLY bad. I just thought they made a good and funny story. I got my message from it all, learned an astrological lesson and made lemonade out of it by writing a funny blog post. What I believe is that there is a yin and yang to everything. A shine and shadow, a high road and low road. ‘Fortunate’ aspects also have a negative side and ‘challenging’ aspects have a positive. Nothing is wholly good or bad. We are all energy, the universe is sacred geometry and we contain it all. We are universal energy and that sacred geometry flows in and through us. As above, so below, as within, so without. For example we are in the midst of ‘fortunate’ aspects...

An Astrological Pivot Week

This week, and most particularly today and tomorrow, is a pivot week according to astrologer Anne Ortelee. I could go into all the astrology but as my aim is to write for you, not to give an astrology lesson or write for other astrologers I will only mention the highlights and if you want to know all the astrology look at Anne’s post. Instead I will only talk about how this week should affect you and how you will feel. Firstly, what does a pivot week mean? It means a profound or paradigm shift. This week is a shift from thinking to feeling. A ‘getting out of our head time’ and really moving into a more feminine time. A very watery time of flow and emotion. The Sun and Jupiter join together today to begin a whole new year of creativity and then they both move into the sign of Cancer. The Sun tomorrow and Jupiter late on the 25th – I am always referencing mountain time. Cancer is THE sign of feeling, of nurturing, of the mother and from the 25th we will have four planets in this sign until Venus moves into Leo on the 28th. The Sun, Mercury (which is going retrograde on the 26th) will be there for quite some time. Too much astrology? I apologize. This just means a real period of moving into our feelings. I am seeing it already. There was a thread on a friends facebook profile yesterday talking about how their emotions are all over the place. There were many comments agreeing. It’s also very apt that I am starting...

Transformation Through The Shift

We have been through some incredible transformational energies over the last few months. I see it in my clients, my friends and on a global scale. What I see most is the inner transformation. So many of my peers are shifting in irrevocable ways. And this can be painful. There are many reasons for this astrologically but I don’t want to blind you with the science. If you want to know what has been happening there’s enough out there on the internet. I think you must have had your head under a rock to have avoided all the talk of the shift. What I will talk about today is the energy now and how that MAY help your transformation. We are in one of the most fortunate periods astrologically that we have seen for some time. This week we have Grand trines forming in water - a very ‘lucky’ configuration. This is building to what’s called a Star Of David at the end of July but I’ll write more on that as the time gets closer. The very names of these configurations just feel good though don’t they? And that’s because they are. This week we have two Grand Trines exacting. One was on the third and one will be on the seventh. Both include Saturn and Neptune and the first included Mercury and next it’s Venus. We will have the Moon, Sun, Mars and Jupiter to come as they all enter the sign of Cancer. What does this mean? It means increased creativity and sensitivity. There will be a lot of emotion around. I just cried at my...
