Venus, Mars and Saturn: what shape is your relationship in?


Venus squares Saturn at 17 degrees Scorpio-Leo  becoming exact August 26, at 2:22 P.M., EST. This is not a good time to plan social events, and love affairs may be lacking in love and passion. This is a basically negative transit concerning love and money, especially if it aspects your personal chart. Astrologer Dr. Herber Smith wrote, " This is decidedly a nasty one. Plan nothing social for the time. You are likely to expect too much of your friends and may feel somewhat dull, unhappy or slighted and get your precious feelings hurt. If you are disposed to be jealous now is the time for the exhibition of this charming trait and misunderstandings, grouches, sensitiveness, wounded feelings, tragedies constructed out of vague imaginings, slight will not be so nice to you so smile and be a sport if it kills you."

Mars crosses Saturn August 26, but the influence will still be prominent in the sky for a few days. Mars-Saturn transits tend to stall, end or delay situations and the combination of Mars and Saturn can seem cruel and frustrating.

August 27, Mars squares Venus and this is indicative of trouble with the opposite sex (and others) Mars-Venus transits often relate to sex, but it can be physical attraction only. This transit can go either way in your social life, but if it is aspecting your personal chart, it can be significant, and may give you an idea of how sound your relationship really is.

The astrology of Ferguson, MO., and Michael Brown







Michael Brown, the unarmed 18 year old shot to death in Ferguson, MO. was laid to rest August 25.

Cities like people, or anything else have a birth chart and Ferguson, MO was incorporated on November 19, 1894,  (according to Astrologer Matthew Currie) which gives this city a 27 degree Scorpio Sun and places 5 planets in the same sign. At the time of the Brown shooting, Saturn was conjunct Uranus showing an unexpected event with potential for violence.  The funeral of Brown shows up as a major event both in Ferguson and the chart of MO itself, as Mars is conjunct Saturn, and Mars-Saturn conjuncts Uranus in Ferguson's natal chart which I would call a major event with a cruel undertone.

Using 12 noon is not something I like to do, but as we do not know the time of the cities' incorporation, this is standard for any chart, and this gives Ferguson a 23 degree Leo moon. The moon shows the mood of the people, and I would call this a sobering aspect, and a wakeup call for the residents for some time to come.

During the latter part of the year Saturn will conjunct the Sun of this natal chart, and this transit will be prominent for many months in 2015. As Saturn conjuncts the Sun changes occur on major levels, and there is no doubt this incident involving Michael Brown will change the city in many ways, likely even some of its leadership. But growth and change is difficult and slow.

Taking a brief look at Brown's chart with the city of Ferguson, itself, if anyone had ever asked, I would say that Ferguson would be a dangerous place for Brown to live as his natal Mars at 13 degrees of Taurus opposes both Mercury and Uranus in the Ferguson chart at 11/16 degrees of Scorpio.

Brown's Sun opposes the Sun of Ferguson as well and I would call this conflict. The moon of Ferguson which lies around 23 degrees of Leo also squares Brown's Taurus planets, another bad dynamic.

The city of Ferguson has Mars at 21 degrees of Aries, and Mars represents "the forces which hold a state together, or drive it apart in terms of aggression, according to astrologer Nicholas Champion. Champion writes, 'at an archetypical level Mars also represents the collective need of a society to have enemies, to express itself aggressively." Mars in Aries is at home here, and shows an aggressive police force as evidenced by the military equipment Ferguson employed during the protests and the police officers who have been removed from duty due to racial and volatile rants. Ferguson's Mars at 21 Aries squares Neptune in Brown's chart creating a confusing and discouraging dynamic, and we may never completely know the sequence of events that led to his death, or they may be misrepresented in some way.

Mars in the Ferguson chart also squares Brown's Jupiter at 17 Capricorn the sign of law, and the Uranus-Pluto square was aspecting Brown's Jupiter at the time of his death which would be considered a life altering transit.

Michael Brown was born May 20, 1996, according to Wikipedia, no time of birth has been published. The Sun changed signs that day around 2 P.M, so without his time of birth we don't know whether he was a  Taurus or a Gemini. Either way, his natal Sun was in opposition to Pluto at 1 degree of Sagittarius, falling in or close to his 7th house of open enemies from his Sun in his birth chart.

Astrologer Robert Pelletier tells us, "the Sun in opposition to Pluto shows that you are defensive when challenged by others. You generally assume your opponent has more power than you and your own position is insecure. If it becomes obvious you cannot win you may turn your back on the threat and pretend it didn't exist." According to reports, Brown had an altercation with officer Darren Wilson through the window of the police vehicle, then turned and ran with his friend. Sun opposing Pluto individuals encounter powerful enemies at times in their life, and these enemies can become their undoing. In Brown's case it appears to have cost him his life.

Mars represents action and aggression and at 13 of degrees Taurus, his Mars is square Uranus at 4 degrees of Aquarius with a wide orb of 9 degrees. Mars-Uranus individuals can have a temper, and be prone to accidents, injuries,  risk taking and erratic behavior. As a rule they do not like to be told what to do. This is a transit that could bring many sudden, surprising and even explosive situations into his life. At the time of his death, this square in his natal chart was being aspected by transiting Mars at 8 degrees of Scorpio which set it off and Mars can show police and volatile actions.

Brown's Moon is in home loving Cancer and which can give great depth of feeling. These individuals have a powerful memory and sensitivity that is unique to this moon placement. At times they can experience turbulent emotions, and once these individuals become your friend, it is generally for a very long time, if not life. Cancer moon individuals seem to have an ability to sway public opinion in an emotional way-remember this. Some well know individuals with a Cancer moon include Walter Cronkite, Nick Nolte, Keanu Reeves, Babe Ruth and Bob Hope, along with the UK's Prince William.

Brown was a motivated individual with Jupiter in Capricorn falling in his ninth house of higher education trine his Mars and Mercury. According to friends he wanted to become an air conditioner technician and own his own business. He had graduated from High School just 8 days earlier and was looking forward to starting his technical training. Had he lived he would have no doubt pursued his dream.

Mars and Mercury are conjunct in Taurus at 13 and 21 degrees and at times he could be considered stubborn, or even bullheaded, once he made a decision there was no turning back. Mercury rules speech and communication and Mars rules action. This indicates a restless and eager mind, and one that would not back down from debate.

Neptune trines Michael's  Sun and this would allow him to respond to what he learned both  emotionally and intellectually, and this would give him a certain psychic and intuitive ability. At times these individuals have enormous talent to express and knowledge can come through osmosis, simply absorbing it naturally through the environment and his own psychic facilities. It is usually the mark of a creative and gentle personality. These transits would cause him to desire to seek out another dimension in life: spiritual, artistic or in some way different. They are dreamers and idealists, sometimes hard to pin down and don't like to be labeled.

According to an ABC report Brown's stepmother Cal stated at the funeral Brown had been dreaming of death recently and stated to her, "'Because I've been dreaming of death, seeing pictures of death, seeing pictures of bloody sheets hanging on clotheslines,'" Cal Brown told the church filled with mourners. "That touched me. That’s what it was like when he was laying there on the street (after being shot). He prophesized his own death."

It's hard to understand how a young person with his future in front of him can be cut down in such a tragic way. Video's have circulated showing Brown robbing a store and threatening the clerk, and some witnesses attest to him threatening officer Darren Wilson. Whether or not he is guilty of these acts death is a high price to pay, especially considering the many far worse violent acts that warrant little or no time in jail for many.

Pluto opposing the Sun tells us that Brown could gain powerful enemies in life and push back. Mars-Mercury tells us that he could be argumentative or even verbally abusive at times. Sun-Neptune can make him a dreamer, perhaps naive in some of his actions.  Uranus-Mars gives him a temper and prone to taking risks and attracting unexpected situations into his life.

At the time of Brown's death transiting Saturn, at 16 degrees of Scorpio, was opposing his Mars (13 degrees Taurus) and Mercury (21 degrees of Taurus). Saturn-Mars transits can indicate frustration and is indicative of police. On August 9, Mars was at 7 degrees Scorpio having just crossed his Uranus at 4 degrees Aquarius-setting off the natal Mars-Uranus square in his chart. Mars/Uranus transits are indicative of sudden and explosive, unexpected situations  and  transiting Jupiter (Jupiter rules law, law enforcement, lawyers, young men and legal situations) was conjucnt his Uranus at this time.

 Mercury and the Sun were conjunct on this day at 16 degrees of Leo, square Saturn in the sky showing us we would hear negative and harsh news in the world and this transit was also square Brown's natal Mars.

Michael Brown's chart contains a Yod which is a powerful aspect that looks like a triangle in the natal chart. It combines a sextile  (60 degrees) and 2 quincunxs.  The triangle has two 150 degree sides and the front of the triangle of 60 degrees across. The two sides point to a third planet which is the focus of the configuration and Brown's case it is his Cancer moon. Remember a Cancer moon can inspire large emotions, as certainly occurred on both the side of the protesters and law enforcement during the aftermath of the shooting in Ferguson.

A yod is considered a  rare configuration that infers fate or destiny and has been called the 'finger of God', 'the finger of fate,' and has been a source of debate for decades. This natal configuration is supposed to bestow a special destiny or a special purpose in life that can be karmic in nature.

A yod can be very challenging bringing circumstances of a repeated theme. A yod is said to bring difficult circumstances in life  and some astrologers believe a person with a yod to be working on a special lifetime task or mission. A yod has been referred to by some as an aspect of 'karmic readjustment', pointing to a special destiny.

There can be no doubt that as a result of his death, Michael Brown will be remembered for a very long time, and his death used as a means of pointing toward what many consider to be an inordinate number of police shootings of black males.

Hopefully, his death will serve a purpose and we as a country can take an unbiased look at what many claim are an inordinate number of police shootings/arrests and harsher sentences among black males. The world has now seen the differences of opinion and viewpoints among the segregated residents of Ferguson and heard their frustrations. Hopefully, peace and healing can come to all involved, and especially to the friends and family of the dead.

Of course the shooting deaths of Michael Brown, Kajieme Powell, and Eric Garner as well as the civil unrest met with military equipment and weapons in Ferguson paint a picture of racism and law enforcement run amuck and are all part of the powerful Uranus-Pluto square that continues to dominate our skies until 2016. Change is slow, but the Uranus-Pluto square is bound to bring it.

Uranus was conjunct Pluto in Virgo during the Civil rights movement of the 1960's. The Uranus-Pluto square of this time will insure we revisit this issue and continue to make changes as a society that did not occur in the 1960's. Change is always slow in the world but this time the first black US Attorney General visited Ferguson personally, and vowed to 'stand with the people of Ferguson." The last time Uranus was in a square to Pluto was the mid 1930's. In 1934-35 we saw the U.S. Nazi Riot, New York City, New York, the Minneapolis Teamsters Strike of 1934, the Auto-Lite strike, the1934 West Coast Longshore Strike, the Textile workers strike, and the Detroit World Series riot. This was followed in 1935 with the Harlem Riot, March 19–20 and the  Southern Tenant Farmers' Union Riot.

Anger over racial injustice is not new, but Uranus and Pluto shake us up and bring change and evolution to the world as a whole. Hopefully, by the time this powerful square completes the events that occurred in Ferguson will have brought  awareness and healing to the town and to the country as a whole.

Virgo new moon: Desperately seeking sagacity

Sagacity is described as  acuteness of mental discernment and soundness of judgment, and we may be in need of this quality as this month's new moon in Virgo opposes Neptune.

The August new moon falls at 2 degrees of Virgo August 25, at 10:13 A.M., EST, opposing Neptune at 6 degrees of Pisces.
 
Moon-Neptune transits often cloud issues, contribute to confusion, misplaced sympathy, hypersensitivity, subconscious hangups often come to the fore, psychological withdrawal, evasion and overindulgence in food, drink and subconscious, impractical ideas, confusing relationships with women, and general listlessness can be some of the experiences of this transit.
 
On the other hand we can experience deja vu  types of experiences, psychic experiences, extreme creativity depending on what else is being aspected in your chart, and this transit is indicative of helping those less fortunate in whatever capacity.
 
Virgo is the natural ruler of the sixth house of work and health and to some extent we will all be engrossed in these matters.
 
Like any other transit you will be more or less affected depending on what else is in your natal chart. If you have mutable planets (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo) at 1-7 degrees of any of the above signs Neptune is conjucnt, square or opposing something in your chart at this time and this new moon can set off events of significance. What comes to mind are my numerous clients/individuals with Neptune in the early degrees of Sagittarius, born late 1970-74, or Pluto in the early degrees of Virgo born late 1958-61, just to mention a few.
 
The important thing to remember about any Neptune transit is to let events stand the test of time, and what seems real at the time, may just be a confusing situation. Then again, sometimes things and situations are revealed on Neptune transits.
 
If Mercury opposing Neptune affected you on August 18, (or a day before or after) and you remember significant events on this day this moon may impact your chart as will the Sun's entrance into Virgo on August 23-24.
 
It is likely we will see weather related situations and conditions around this time.
 
Add to this mix the energy of Mars conjunct Saturn, becoming exact on the same day and you have a recipe for frustration, a slow burn and anger. Mars-Saturn transits relate to frustrated desires for action, anger, suppressed anger, harshness and a heavy work load. Try and direct this transit toward work and you will accomplish a great deal. This will affect your chart is your have planets in Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius at 14-17 degrees.
 
Mars-Saturn transits relate to police and military action and we will see eruptions in the hot spots around the globe and there is a good chance for more upheaval in Ferguson, MO.
I always advise my clients to go toward the positive energy of any situation and while this new moon may be difficult for some, Venus trines Uranus on this day and now is the time to look for new solutions to old problems.
'Keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars.' The late Casey Kasem

Serving up heavenly hash: fun, friends, confusion and delusion

Over the weekend of August 16, Venus moves closer to Jupiter, becoming exact August 18, at 1:21 A.M. at 7 degrees of Leo in the early morning hours. Venus-Jupiter is typically an exuberant, upbeat and fun transit, especially in Leo, and especially if it aspects something in your personal natal chart. Venus and Jupiter in Leo can be a great moment in time for love affairs, friends, fun, overindulgences of all kinds and it may be hard to focus on work. People overall, may be in a mood for fun, entertainment and good times. If it falls just right in your natal chart, it could be one of your best days or you could meet someone new.

Also on August 18, Mercury, having just entered Virgo on  August 15, the most critical of signs, opposes Neptune at 6 degrees of Virgo-Pisces at 11:42 P.M. Monday. This is a confusing and discouraging, not to mention tiring transit indicative of confusion, lies and delusion. So, the morale of this story is have fun, but don't take things too seriously. If someone says something unexpected or you meet someone new on this day, let time tell the tale as to whether or not you can trust what happens and don't take it too seriously until time proves it correct. It will all come out in the wash, as they say.

So, enjoy the weekend and you may reconsider some things by Monday afternoon, or if you have had too much fun, you could pay the piper at the start of the work week.

Goodbye sweet Robin (Williams)


Actor/comedian Robin Williams was born July 21, 1951 at 1:34 P.M., Chicago Illinois. He passed away August 11, 2014.

 Robin was a 28 degree Cancer with an 8 degree Moon in Pisces. This alone is a sensitive combination, with the key word being sensitive, and he would understand the full range of human emotions.

Add to this a 12 degree Scorpio ascendant-he was able to personify the depth of whatever character he was playing-along with a Mars conjunct Uranus at 11-10 degrees of Cancer and you have a portrait of a man who feels everything.  At times he was secretive.

Mars-Uranus gives him a quirky ability to come up with off the wall moments, and he may have had a bit of a temper in his private life, at times. Mars Uranus can be described as: unwillingness to submit to authority, a rebel without a cause, disruptive force, controversial assertions and actions, independent, shocking anger or violence, unconventional, unpredictable and angry outbursts,  crazy and exciting energy, electric, jittery, nervous energy, sudden recognition and knowing what to do, doing the opposite of what you should, and eccentric. All of this made Robin who he was and we loved him for it, but it is widely speculated he was manic depressive when could account for some of the extreme highs and lows which would also be indicative of this transit, and others in his natal chart.  

Williams' Pluto was conjunct Mercury at 18-22 degrees of Leo, ruler of the fifth house of entertainment and he was able to look deeply into his character and dramatize his characters. This gave him an intensity that could penetrate our defenses and allow us to laugh at things we might otherwise find serious. He had the intense mentality to tap into his character and portray him (or her) to the fullest depths.

Mars and Uranus squared Neptune in his 11th house and Jupiter in his 6th, creating a T-square between the three planets. This pattern in his chart would give him his both his imagination that allowed him to soar to creative heights and his addictions. In other words, his T-square gave him the best of himself along with the worst which is generally the case, as a T-square will often do.

This transit (T-square) could be described as a self induced violent ending and indicative of suicide in the natal chart:  Mars-Uranus-(violence) square Neptune (death-drugs-the subconscious mind) opposing Jupiter (over the top actions, drugs, a medical issue), and  death was by asphyxia- suicide by hanging.

His Venus and Saturn were both in Virgo, and Venus fell in his career house. Virgo pays attention to details and this gave us the intricate, complicated characters he played so well. But, Saturn and Venus in this sign can also be overly critical, sad and self-depreciating. He took his personal failures too seriously and was so critical of himself in the end he decided to check out of a world that adored him when he could no longer love himself.

He was said to have re-entered rehab in July and was fighting serious depression. Pluto was opposing his Mars-Uranus, square Jupiter, setting off the T-square, as was transiting Uranus. Pluto-Mars transits are indicative of anger, violence, extremes and a deep desire to transform in some way. He must have felt as though something in his life was out of his control. Asphyxia would bring a violent ending.

Uranus was conjunct Jupiter in the 5th house (drugs, addictions, a medical issue) and opposing Neptune in his 12th house. Uranus-Neptune transits are indicative of drugs, alcohol, unclear thinking, confusion and lack of clarity/depression.

Basically, the powerful Uranus-Pluto square currently dominating the sky was setting off the T-square in his chart that contains the above mentioned planets. We have seen other public figures pass away as a result of this powerful transiting configuration and in the future we will see more, especially among the cardinal signs (Cancer, Libra, Aries and Capricorn).

Saturn had just moved forward from a retrograde period on August 11, amping up the energy of Saturn square Pluto-Mercury in his chart. Saturn-Pluto is a difficult transit, I often refer to as 'seething anger.' Astrologer Louis Aker describes it as "a hard unsympathetic austere attitude, dealings with circumstances that have a sinister and foreboding nature-increased will power and determination, involvement in power struggles and plots-serious professional problems and obstacles."

Transiting Neptune was conjunct his moon and this transit is indicative of addiction issues, unclear thinking, emotional issues, psychological withdrawal, and depression.

All of these transits involve the heavy outer planets, and these are the times in life we face our biggest obstacles and fears. Had he lived his struggles and depression would have continued for some time into the future.

The full moon is Aquarius opposed his Pluto-Mercury the day before his death, exact, and the Sun was conjunct Pluto. Sun-Pluto-moon transits deal with deep seated personal issues, and can result in psychological meltdowns. He died on his solar return-the day of the month the moon returns to its birth placement in the natal chart.

On the day of his death, August 11, 2014 Robin's Progressed Mercury was conjunct Mars and transiting Mercury was conjunct Mars-Mercury which would result in a serious 24 hour period of extreme depression/agitation.  As Mercury rules our thinking, William's thinking become absolute in the direction he would take. His body was found hanging from a bedroom door according to authorities in Marin County, Ca., discovered by a personal assistant at 11 A.M.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The laughter has died, and sadness and seriousness now replace  what was once  a bright light that brought hours of happiness, fun and laughter to so many around the world. As his life is discussed and the shock of recent events sets in perhaps this tragic event will shed a light on the seriousness of the disease known as mental illness and how we treat it as a society. Thanks for the laughs. RIP, Robin Williams.

Supermoon in Aquarius and the Sun/Mercury square Saturn

August 10th's full moon in Aquarius is a Supermoon, a phrase coined years ago by astrologer Richard Nolle. What is a Supermoon? It is a phrase coined by Nolle that describes a new or full moon at or near its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit. The Earth, Sun and Moon are all in a line with the Moon in its nearest approach to the earth.

Nolle explaines further, "SuperMoons are noteworthy for their close association with extreme tidal forces working in what astrologers of old used to call the sublunary world: the atmosphere, crust and oceans of our home planet - including ourselves, of course. From extreme coastal tides to severe storms to powerful earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the entire natural world surges and spasms under the sway of the SuperMoon alignment - within three days either way of the exact syzygy, as a general rule. SuperMoon solar eclipses tend to have a wider sphere of impact, extending roughly a week before and after the actual event."

Nolle continued, "Take Hurricane Katrina, for example; spawned from a tropical depression formed within three days of the August 19 SuperMoon. My forecast for 2005 warned of severe storms within plus or minus three days of the day Hurricane Katrina formed, and even specified the Gulf of Mexico as one of the areas at risk in connection with that particular SuperMoon alignment."

 

"Examples of the SuperMoon connection with major storms and seismic events abound: the Mt. Pinatubo eruption, the largest volcanic event in the second half of the 20th Century, took place on June 15, 1991 (within three days of a SuperMoon); the October 6, 1948 Richter 7.3 earthquake that struck Ashgabat, Turkmenistan and took 110,000 lives, one of the deadliest earthquakes on record (again within three days of a SuperMoon, allowing for time zones); and the September 8, 1900 hurricane and tidal surge that struck Galveston, Texas on the day of a SuperMoon, which killed more people (8,000 dead) than any other Atlantic hurricane on record and remains the deadliest natural disaster yet to strike the United States. I'm just scratching the surface here, citing only a few historic instances in the past hundred years or so."

 

This moon is at 18 degrees of Aquarius, the natural ruler of the 11th house of groups. Groups include countries, and individuals with an agenda to push, and is a sign closely associated with war and unexpected events such as revolutions and coups. The planetary rulers of Aquarius are Saturn-structure, and Uranus-revolts and revolutions.

 

August 8, (Friday) Mercury conjuncts the Sun at 12:21 P.M. EST and squares Saturn at 10:50 P.M. EST.  Mercury-Sun can be considered a 'willful' influence, and Mercury square Saturn can be an influence that restricts thinking and communication.  Mercury however trines Uranus and this calls for freedom of thought and mental-psychological movement.

 

August 9, on the eve of the full moon the Sun squares Saturn and this transit deals with restriction, reality and responsibilities.  Sun-Saturn transits generally relate to blocks, delays, tiredness and obstacles or at times, endings. We will hear much negative news on the world stage.

 

If you have fixed planets in your personal chart at 16-18 degrees of Leo, Aquarius or Scorpio or Taurus, this aspect will affect your chart. How it affects it depends on what is in your chart and what it is aspecting.

 

As transiting Saturn is at 16 degrees of Scorpio conjunct, square or opposed to these planets at this time you will likely experience this as a frustrating period when certain situations may come to a head in your life.

 

The full moon occurs at 2:09 P.M, August 10, EST.  This moon is potentially one of the most explosive of the year and the above transits (Sun-Mercury in Leo) will oppose it, creating clashes and stress.

 

This moon squares Saturn which is negative, restrictive and frustrating. At 18 degrees it sextiles Uranus giving us a window of opportunity to seek new ideas and plans and find a way out of the rut.

 

Astrologer Mitch Lewis wrote about this full moon, "All Full Moons should be respected for their potentially explosive energy. But the Aquarian Full Moon holds a particular place in this scenario. This sign is the most volatile and unpredictable of the twelve. It represents unbridled freedom of expression and movement, and resists all forms of confinement and limitations. As such, it’s important to recognize that we are all under its influence during a lunar peak and should use caution and try to avoid all useless confrontations. But no matter how much you try, you will still sense the tension and potential for altercations and conflicts. The best way to handle this energy is to not have preconceived notions about how things should go, and just walk through situations with an open mind."

This moon opposes the Sun, making it emotional, squares Saturn, creating blocks and restriction, opposes Mercury creating agitation and showing the possibility of issues surrounding transportation and young people, and sextiles Uranus giving us a window for new, fresh and inspired thinking, and my advice is to go with this energy as much as possible.

Leo and Aquarius represent the second/eighth house axis of money, earned income, other people's money, taxes, sex, death and transformation of all kinds.

Looking at the US natal chart for this full moon, four out of ten planets fall in the 9th house of foreign affairs, showing a concern with matters abroad that may become explosive to the public.  The ninth house also concerns universities and education,  laws and the medical field. 

The President will be working behind the scenes and Mars in the 12th house shows what astrologers consider subversives, or those individuals who are out to act in ways that are considered against the government or common interests of the people-society.

The energy of this full moon is present at the time this blog is published (as evidenced by Tuesdays explosion in Afghanistan and the death of a US General) and will continue for several weeks after this moon.

This is a serious and explosive moon for the world and in our personal lives, and much that happens will be unexpected. On the other hand the Leo-Aquarius combination can make it social, and with the Uranus aspect show us new ideas and ways of doing things. While we cannot underestimate the seriousness of it, it is up to us to make the most of the positive energy and as I often tell clients:  We cannot let every negative transit that comes along knock us down!

 Full moons (this one especially) amp up emotions and feelings to the point they can often become explosive.  You can explode, and then perhaps have to repair the damage or let this energy pass without drama. In this way, we have a choice.

Be aware, and make the most of every day. If you take the high road (positive side) this moon can show you new ways of operating, thinking and perhaps acting or reacting to situations in your life. It's all about transformation on this Supermoon.
 
"Under the light of the moon, you can see more lucidly the way that lies before you, and as a result, you walk forward with more clarity." Robert Peng
