The full Moon falls on Wednesday March 27. It's a very powerful full Moon and there's bound to be some shifts on many levels and in many ways. The Sabian Symbol is Libra 7: A Woman Feeding Chickens And Protecting Them From The Hawks.
January's full Moon falls on January 26 in the United States and January 27 in Australia. The theme of this full Moon is very much about overthrowing the 'old guard' and taking on the new. It shows a need to get your own agenda going, not to bend to the needs or desires of others when they really don't have anything to contribute to your sense of self or accomplishment.
December's new Moon falls on December 13, and it has a fabulously rich message. The Sabian Symbol is Sagittarius 22: A CHINESE LAUNDRY. The questions this Symbol often ask include - Do you like what you're doing? Do you get well rewarded and respected for it? Are you shutting yourself away and not allowing yourself a better life? Do you do menial work and wonder why you continue to do it?
The eclipse speaks of many things - as lunations always do - but the crux of it, I figure is the image of reaching deeply into oneself and others in order to get to the pure, refreshing waters of who we and others are. It's also about opening up the heart, healing our wounds and finding our place.
September's Aries full Moon occurs on September 29 in the United States and September 30 in Australia. It is a major astrological occurrence as the Sun and Moon are in Venus and Mars' planetary ruler ships (the Sun in Libra, ruled by Venus and the Moon in Aries, ruled by Mars).
With the strong geomagnetic storms that are erupting now, it's amazingly synchronistic that the Sabian Symbol for the new Moon is Cancer 27: A Furious Storm In A Canyon Filled With Valuable Homes.The wording in this Symbol is rather strong and may cause concern for some. Please note that the 'storm' can come in many forms and it may not actually play out in your life on a personal level - some will see it reflected in events in the world outside.
March's Virgo full Moon occurs on March 8. The Sabian Symbol is Virgo 19: A Swimming Race. This Symbol speaks of being in the 'race' or being outside of it. Being competitive, or letting others take the lead without contest, of the need to be in the lead versus not wanting to dive from the starting blocks.
February's Pisces new Moon occurs on February 21 in the U.S. and February 22 in Australia. This new Moon is a powerfully Piscean one as it is conjunct (together with) Neptune, Pallas Athena and Chiron, with Mercury leading the charge further into Pisces. Talk about having to get one's story right! This new Moon holds so much potential for exploring the story that we tell ourselves (I see Chiron very much as that - the stories we tell ourselves)
I find it rather amusing that the last new Moon was Aquarius 3: The Deserter From The Navy and this full Moon is Leo 19: A Houseboat Party. February's full Moon occurs on the 7th in the US and the 8th in Australia and the Sabian Symbol is Leo 19: A Houseboat Party Crowded With Revelers; The Water Reflects Its Lights.
Many apologies for the lateness of this new Moon newsletter. I know that some don't realise that the effects of the new and full Moons stretch on into the future, sometimes for the coming month and sometimes longer if major events happen during the month in question, so please know that this influence is still very much around.
