We soon will be at the New Moon in Gemini, which will set the stage for the upcoming Mercury Retrograde in Gemini, which will be with us for almost the entire month of June. While Mercury retrogrades have been known to have their challenges, this one is going to be unique and in many ways

May's Scorpio full Moon falls on May 14 in the United States and May 15 in Australia. With Saturn conjuncting (together with) the Moon and opposing the Sun, it feels like a time of throwing things out, lightening one's load.
Happening during this incredibly powerful time of the grand cardinal cross, this is an especially testing eclipse season and one in which a lot of people will be making some major changes. In some cases, the changes happening now may seem to come from out of the blue, but in many cases, they have been a long time coming.
Hello friends. We have arrived at the Full Moon/Eclipse for April. It has also been called a "Blood Moon" due to the coppery hue that appears due to the effects of the lunar eclipse. We haven't had a full lunar eclipse since 2011, so this one is rather special.
The Aries new Moon falls on March 31 in Australia and March 30 in the United States. This is a fairly firey new Moon with Uranus positioned just two degrees after it, which means that the hours and days following the new Moon could be rather interesting, perhaps unpredictable, explosive, revolutionary, life-changing, etc.
Occurring on April 10, the Aries new Moon is another very powerful lunation. With such a line-up in Aries - Uranus, the Sun, the Moon, Mars, Eris and Venus all in Aries - the energies are bound to be heightened, to say the least.
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.
The highlights of this full Moon include a tight t-square from Jupiter, Chiron conjuncting the Sun and opposing the Moon, Mars conjuncting Mercury and Venus conjuncting Neptune. All in all, a rather interesting, instructive, psychic and healing full Moon.
The Aquarian new moon falls on February 10 and it is another very challenging one, but as with all lunations, full of promise and possibility. This Aquarian new Moon has not only an Aquarian emphasis, with Moon, Sun and Venus in Aquarius, but also a strong Piscean influence, with Neptune, Mars, Mercury and Chiron in Pisces - all within a few degrees of each other. This can bring confusion all the way to enlightenment.
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.
January's Capricorn new Moon falls on January 11 in the United States and January 12 in Australia. This new Moon is one of knowing when to fight and when to let go - when to stay in the game and when to change course - to decide what battles are worth fighting and what one's are not worth the time and energy one expends.
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.
