March's new Moon is on March 4 in the United States and March 5 in Australia. The Sabian Symbol is Pisces 14: A Woman Wrapped In Fox Fur. She presents a beautiful image and one has the sense that she radiates intelligence, grace and wealth. The ‘Fox Fur’ carries the feeling of protection being given through the use of wit, tact, diplomacy, glamour and intellect. There is an aura of “street smarts” about the ‘Woman Wrapped in Fox Fur', like she could get out of (or into) any situation that she chooses.
The Pisces full Moon occurs on August 31 and it brings some interesting messages with it. It is conjunct Chiron, the Wounded Healer and The Stories We Tell Ourselves, and it gives us a chance to figure out just what those stories are and how relevant they are to our lives. The next full Moon, occurring on September 30, is conjunct Uranus, so it seems that we can have a look at how to engage Chiron to effect a healing and then to make use of Uranus in order to make some decisions next month.
October's Libran new Moon falls on October 15 and it signals new starts, announcing new beginnings, but it can also signify a lot of noise and 'hot air' being blown around. I imagine we'll be hearing a bit of both, especially with the elections happening in the United States.
This has been a particularly Uranian time that we've been experiencing for some months. The energy has been electric, confused, pushy and yet slow, somehow organised and then somehow deranged, and, generally, all over the shop (especially so with Mars retrograde in Virgo since January 25).
The Leo new Moon falls on August 6 in the United States and August 7 in Australia. It's a bit of a push-me pull-you type of new Moon as it trines Uranus but squares the Moon's nodes. There could be confusion over what's really going on, are we coming or going?
December's Sagittarius new Moon falls on December 5 in the United States and December 6 in Australia. The Sabian Symbol for the new Moon is Sagittarius 14: A Vast Panorama Of Sand And Time Is Unfolding: The Pyramids And Sphinx In Their Glory Rise Before The Eye. This is a deep and complicated degree (as are most degrees!), and it infers things all the way from building edifices of spiritual practice all the way up to multi-level marketing, big business, exploitation of labor and people's time, energy and resources.

The Scorpio full Moon falls on Friday, April 22. This is a very interesting, and for many, very rewarding lunation. The Sabian Symbols that go with the planetary energies are really quite extraordinarily wonderful
Speaking of which, this newsletter is late as I had a computer failure halfway through writing it. Taking a week to repair, we thought it was the mother board, but it was the processor. The processor certainly reflects the Sabian Symbol for this new Moon: Circular Paths. Something to bear in mind as you're reading this is that the new Moon has an influence over the coming month and things that happen in the course of the Moon can signify new beginnings that are reflected for some time to come. We process the energies, events and issues that come up and learn from them.
