Full Moon in Aquarius – August 10, plus the Venus-Jupiter conjunction in Leo and the Mars-Saturn conjunction in Scorpio!!

47428141To talk about the beauty and benefits of the Venus-Jupiter conjunction (16 August) without looking at the context of what is happening at this moment, would be ridiculous. Especially when a week after this fantastic cosmic event peaks, another rather less fantastic conjunction of Mars-Saturn in Scorpio (24-25 August) takes place.
and as a prelude to all of this, comes the Full Moon in Aquarius, which, by the way, is a Super Moon, which means the Moon is at its perigee or point closer to the Earth at the time of a lunation.Both the Sun and the Moon are in square to Saturn in Scorpio with the looming proximity of Mars at already 8 degrees of orb of Saturn. Moreover, the Sun finds itself in very close proximity to Mercury in Leo, forming a T-square to the Mars-Saturn conjunction in Scorpio. The first thing that jumps to mind is of course the situation in Gaza and the impossibility of finding any verbal agreement, which may stop the destruction.
As much as we seek the positive side of this, we must always remember, that Mars and Saturn, have always been, especially for traditional Astrology from ancient times the two most malefic planets. Taking into consideration that Pluto had not been discovered, neither Uranus nor Neptune. The latter forms a trine to Mars at the same time and thus to Saturn, reinforced by Chiron from the sign of Pisces, a great positive aspect that reminds us that in some respects, within the chaos in several regions of our planet, there is a certain thread of consciousness between all of us, that inspires us all to work together as much as we can to try and help the thousands of victims and refugees from these conflicts, for example, through NGOs or other means, provided we can overcome the paranoia we have in countries with dishonest politicians, that every organization, including all NGOs, are corrupt and therefore not worth investing money on.
On a personal level, those with planets around 15 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, especially, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) will feel the pinch of this full moon, with great mental stressing situations, where it is difficult to talk about things clearly and therefore facilitating verbal explosions. The only way to control this kind of tension a bit, is to become aware of the inadequacies which lie within us, and talk about things calmly and honestly, admitting personal mistakes and above all recognizing in oneself, the need to manipulate or control the other. Emotional power struggles are common in these cases, when neither partner wants to give in to the demands of the other. The story is about “winning”. But win what? if we look at the situation in Gaza once more, the israeli army is obviously more powerful than Hammas’, and have destroyed more than the all the rockets of Hammas. It seems they are winning because more Palestinian have died, but for the international public they are loosing because most people says: ‘the poor Palestinian’ – No matter the tunnels that have been built and hundreds of rockets being shot per day to Israel. At this time the invader is Israel, although they hold that it is in self-defense. So, who wins? Absolutely no one – there is only destruction, more hatred and more years of planned revenge. These are the typical Marte-Saturno squares in Scorpio.
Venus in the last degrees of Cancer forms a square to Eris in Aries, which predicts the reaffirmation of the defense by any means of one’s territory.
At a personal level is the same, if one does no give up the fight, obviously, the war continues. So think what is that so serious that you can not forgive, that you cannot bring yourself to let go of, to stop the conflict and initiate a new phase in your life or your relationships, more positive and less destructive. When the most important thing is to win and prove to yourself that you are right, the conflict remains.
The most famous Mars-Saturn square in a personal birthchart, is undoubtedly that of Adolf Hitler, which by the way, found Mars in conjunction to Venus in Taurus. Curious. And it is also in trine to a conjunction Moon-Jupiter, incredible!, but some aspect of Hitler psyche must have been really idealistic and kind. Yet the power of the Mars-Saturn aspect was much more eloquent than the Jupiter trines.
A similar thing happens for this lunation. Conflicts that describe personal frustrations are more powerful than the wonderful aspects of Jupiter, which by the way will be an exact conjunction to Venus in Leo, on August 16th. Could this aspect bring the end of the war, and allow us to see things in a way more philosophical and less conflicting way? of course not, especially when the following week we have the Mars-Saturn conjunction in Scorpio-
Venus in addition to being Aphrodite, the goddess of seduction beauty and money, describes our system of values. It tells us about those things that we really appreciate, that we find beautiful, important.when for a brief moment, it is aligned with Jupiter, in the sign of Leo, suddenly all these values take a characteristic much more idealistic and philosophical. We dare to think big and feel within ourselves, that there are certain things in our lives, that they are worth fighting for. Suddenly our ethical and aesthetic expression are much more active and extensive. A sense of harmony and importance invades us and connects with that part of our psyche that transforms us into noble and heroic beings.
Robert Kennedy, the brother of the murdered President of USA and also assassinated was born with the conjunction Venus-jupiter in Capricorn. You can say many things about him, but his idealism was an undeniable feature of his personality. But Benito Mussolini also, was born with the same conjunction in Cancer.
There are some studies that say that the conjunction Venus-jupiter, was the star of Bethlehem, which guided the 3 KINGS and led them to the place where the Christ was being born.
This will be a heck of a month, full of challenges, many of them encapsulated around August 10, at the time of this full moon in Aquarius, others at the end of the month. Enjoy the Venus-Jupiter conjunction if you can. If you are a Leo or Aquarius, it can bring you high hopes and opportunities that will help you see your way more clearly. If you are a Sagittarius or Aries, also enjoy those days of inspiration, they will help you take decision to do what you have to do to live in peace with your mind and soul.


We are already at the New Moon in Leo of the year! After a month marked by the return to direct motion of Mercury in Gemini, but really completing its post shadow period in Cancer on its way to link with the Uranus-Pluto square, which we have been living through for the past 4 year. We are left with a new war on Israel-Palestine, military and passengers (M17) aircrafts shot down or lost, all of which remind us of the sign of Cancer and the need to defend our borders and our ‘home’? Theme that resonates and occur in other parts of the world as we all well know. We don’t seem to learn the lessons of the past, and dropping bombs on each other seems to be the only “no solution” to which we are still holding on to and each part with its well studied and heartfelt apologies for not sitting down to fix it in a more diplomatic and intelligent manner and exercise our “academic superiority” with respect to the other. What good does it do to progress both scientifically and academically if later we end up resorting to bombs?
It’s very nice to write about the maternal qualities of Cancer, and the feeling of the water sings, but the reality of the passage of Jupiter through this sign for the past 12 months, and now with Mercury in Cancer (the voice of the people, our land), in opposition to Pluto (power struggles and death) in square to Uranus in Aries (liberation from what oppresses us) have left us with many deaths, cyclones and floods, many wars and more deaths. The Grand Cardinal cross of the beginning of the year is certainly making us aware more than ever of the abuse of the dominant classes, the fact that the rich are becoming richer and all the others increasingly poorer. As well as the fact that 80% of the world is poor and corrupt and that nobody seems to know how to fix this either.
And now in a great effort not to sound negative, we have what should be this wonderful new moon in Leo, which peaks in conjunction to Jupiter (the great benefactor) recently established in this sign. But unfortunately, all of this links with a Mars just moved to Scorpio, today, after spending 8 months in Libra, which seemed to keep diplomatic efforts in action. Now the meetings of leaders eager to find a peaceful solution, will find the added tension between Leo (big egos) and Scorpio (revenge and death). The good news is that Saturn already about 17 degrees of Scorpio, forms a large trine to Mercury and Venus in Cancer and Neptune and Chiron in PISCES, which may somewhat counteract the high tension of the T-squares, but the large trine in Water, can be a little too “watery” in their efforts to find a solution to these conflicts. Venus in Cancer which also values the “home”, the “land of our ancestors”, opposes Pluto in Capricorn for this Lunation and of course connects with Uranus by square.
Is there something good in all of this? You may ask, and Yes. The wonders of a new moon in Leo, in conjunction to Jupiter, is without doubt, the possibility of finding a way to express our uniqueness, the extraordinary quality that makes us different from the others, despite belonging to a particular group. What is that that your psyche and your soul need to express, completely apart from your family and cultural conditioning, or the characteristics of “the land” in which you’ve born. It is here where we have a chance of surviving this nationalistic or cultural whirlwind. Who AM I besides belonging to this family, breed or particular tribe?. should i let myself be dragged by the ideas of the tribe, even when my heart asks for something else? The nationalist ground has more to do with Cancer. In Leo, we want to explore who we really are, besides..(being part of a particular tribe). Which is the Mission of my soul, if any, which is my personal Fate?, separate from that of my tribe or what is expected of me, in the place of birth?. What are my own ideologies? Must I be Christian, Muslim, Jewish, hindu, just because my ancestors? We know that if we rise to the place where all souls come together, the realm that some shamans call the North, Christians Heaven, the Greeks and myself the Olympus or the Underworld, then these differences blur and gradually cease to exist. In the “great soul”, every child who dies is the son of all of us, every woman who dies is the sister, mother and daughter of all of us, every man that dies is the father, brother and husband of everyone. The religious, national and tribal differences seem a distant and sad reminder of a separation which in reality does not exist. The question could be, do we keep throwing bombs to each other because we are manipulated by an elite that wants to sell weapons or because in some dark corner of our psyche, we are still in the jungle and we must protect ourselves from other predators and survive above all?
Last night I went to a creative event, which reminded me of the real importance of the message of the sign of Leo. In the mad rush of creativity, of connecting with what makes us unique, the importance of expressing it somehow, the risk that involves letting it out and sharing it with others and risking being criticizes, it is wonderful to watch the smile in the faces of the dancers, (in this particular case), at the end of the process, when after years, months or weeks of hard work and creativity, it is performed in what seems to be a second. When one realices that never mind how imperfect, or incomplete, whatever it came out, is part of you, to explore, to correct and perfect, to polish, or simply to share, to give to others who may or may not benefit from it. The Sharing is perhaps the most satisfactory part, when you see the reaction of others. Simply because sharing yourself is an act of Generosity, and Love and this is a supreme quality of the sign of LEO.
Use the energies of this new moon, to connect with your heart and investigate what more you have to give, to share with others which can help you be proud to be who you are and the possibilities you have. Don’t do anything that you may be embarrassed or regret later.
Even if you don’t paint or dance or play an instrument, every single action of your life, can be a choreography, a poem, a song. That’s Leo.oroszlan3


After 29 years, Saturn finally enters Scorpio, for the next two and a half years, exactly until 24 December 2014 when it’ll move into Satittarius until June 15, 2015, when it’ll dip back into Scorpio for the last time, until 18 September 2015 when it will enter for a second time Sagittarius, to stay there for the following 2 and a half years.
Saturn has not transited Scorpio since 1983 when it entered this sign holding hands with Pluto. These two powerful archetypes in the sign of sexuality, regeneration, shared finances, death, self-analysis, hidden desires, confronted us, specifically at that time, with AIDS, which changed the sexual behaviour of many forever. The first cases became apparent to us about those years of Saturn in Scorpio, with the death of Rock Hudson, in 1985, the first celebrity that would be affected by this disease.
This time, although Saturn and Pluto are not together, they are in mutual reception, since Pluto is in the sign of Capricorn, ruled by Saturn and this one enters Scorpio, sign ruled by Pluto. This quality tends to grant some harmony to the two planets that seem to operate with more affinity than usual. Both planets seem to act more powerfully, activating the corresponding archetypes more intensely. Scorpios and Capricorns will feel this effect more dramatically than most signs.
In the past 10 years the mutual reception between Neptune (in Aquarius) and Uranus (in PISCES) has transformed our lives with the advent of the Internet and social networks, which changed the way we relate to each other for ever. A logical consequence, if we think that it came about right after the years of panic with the Aids virus.
If you are older than 30 years, you can look back into your life, to try and remember what was happening 29 years ago. For all those with precarious knowledge of astrology, Saturn is much like the “bogey-man”.It simply scares us, the though of it approaching after years of bad publicity. However the look should be directed to the area where Saturn will transit through the next three years, cautiously optimistic, that it is there, where we will learn important lessons and resolve vital issues for our development.
We will only to see the difficulties, constraints, increased responsibility that can bring us,if we look at it from a superficial stand point, but if we look from the soul, we know that the lessons that we have been putting off, will be knocking at our door.
We will feel, sometimes unconsciously, that there are certain areas of our lives that need our attention so that we can accomplish much more and gain self-respect. Saturn demands absolute honesty from us, we cannot fool ourselves any more, the mirror returns us an image stripped of roses and fairies and we see ourselves as we are. Yes, admittedly, this aspect of the transits of Saturn is the least appealing, especially if you are more than 50 years old. Interestingly, Saturn has an incredible sense of humor, and a slight smile appears when we can laugh at our problems and “defects”. In reality, Saturn becomes unbearable only when we refuse to accept the lesson that brings us, when we avoid change, or when we insist that things are left as they are, even when it is obvious that things no longer work as they are. Saturn helps us resolve, deal with situations that we normally want to escape. For example: growing up, become adults, take charge of our finances, our studies, comply with the law, pay off debts, sell, build, reform a family property, pay traffic fines, pay taxes, take care of children, parents, deal with the pension.
During its passage through Libra which is about to end, we have seen endless meetings in Davos to be able to take control of the financial crisis that started with the entrance of Pluto in Capricorn which coincided with the fall of Lehman Brothers, and its consequence in the world. Saturn entered Libra at the end of 2009, when relations between the countries of the European union, have not ceased trying to find diplomatic solutions to many issues. With Saturn in Scorpio, the conversation will be about shared money, international debts, taxes, and tax havens. Spain just raise VAT to 21%, I imagine that the immediate reaction to this will begin to be noticed when Saturn enters Scorpio. The money in tax havens will be affected, particularly, with resolutions that put more restrictions to them, I imagine, Scorpio has the ability to bring out the dirty laundry of any situation, as its ruler Pluto, therefore the money in fiscal edens and its true origin, will be one of the themes of this transit.The fight against sexual slavery will be more intense and many Governments that close an eye to it and many “vocational and professional pimps” will meet with the law behind them (hopefully). Scholarships grants for students will be affected also. These and many more are issues that we can expect with this passage of Saturn through Scorpio.
At a personal level, the cardinal signs can breathe and fixed signs are who will be more intensely affected. Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, must assume that these will be serious moments in their lives with topics asking for resolution without the possibility of being postponed, for later times.LATER has arrived, it is NOW.
Saturn enters Scorpio forming a trine to Neptune, which fills us with hope and the possibility of seeing a real solution to our desires. It will also do so with Chiron and later, from June 2013, will be a series of trines to Jupiter, which will give positive impetus to the water signs in particular. Cancer and Pisces, have a wonderful opportunity of resolution in a less conflictive way, the harvest of the effort towards a goal, can see its fruits. Saturn is often called the Lord of Karma and although I don’t think that it’s its unique privilege, is true, that when we are under the transit of this planet we confront decisions and actions taken 7, 14, 21, 29 years earlier. The result of our actions become evident and we must confront the fact that we make mistakes, we have decided poorly, without sufficient knowledge. Although all of this may sound negative, it is not, but, yes, it is hard. If you are a personality strongly Neptunian, with this very important planet in your chart, in contacts with the Sun, the Moon, the ASC, the MC, etc, then the Saturn transit to those points, may will feel quite challenging.
Those born between August 1957 and December 1970, i.e. the generation of the 60’s, when Neptune transited Scorpio, also will live moments of real confrontation with the reality of their lives. The opportunity from Saturn to Neptune is about “making one’s dreams reality” in its most positive manifestation, but it is also a severe fall of Eden, if you’ve been living only in psychological paradise, i.e., escaping reality. This once again is a powerful healing process, if you take advantage of the lesson. These are moments of a deep look at the world of Neptune, our experience of this archetype that holds the key to the inspiration and our creative source, but also what may lead us to a psychiatric hospital. If we do not have a technique or a work done in the past that allows us to realize and channel our creativity, we can easily fall into the victimhood, fatalism, the ancestral madness or ancestral memories that we do not handle consciously.
For those born between the end of August 1983 and November 1985, will now have their first return of Saturn, one of the most important crisis in our development. Those who are now between 27 and 30 years, Saturn completes the first loop around the Sun, since they were born, and it is a critical time for vocational guidance, making decisions that will give shape to their working lives, their family life and everything that implies responsibility, awareness, exercise of authority and the structuring of oneself as an individual, as part of a community. The decisions taken at this point in our life, are some of the most important in our journey on this planet and this incarnation.
For those born at the end of October 1953 until the beginning of October 1956, it is the second Saturn return coming. I.e., when Saturn returns to its natal position for the second and possibly last time in a life. This cycle is rather more liberating than the first, but even so, as it is characteristic of this archetype, taking responsibility for actions and decisions of the past, especially those taken in the first return of Saturn, become more obvious than ever and great lessons of humility and acceptance enrich this period of life. Possibilities to rectify and make peace with situations that have been unsealed, appear on our desk. The care of the sick, family parents in discord, sale or purchase of properties are possible, the death of one or both parents is also possible if this has not happened before and the consequent issues of inheritance.
Saturn is Cronus in Roman mythology, the God of Time, of our time on Earth, with their difficulties, their conditions, their responsibilities. Birth is a Saturnian event, as it is becoming father or mother in order to stop being a child. The development of the internal authority versus being under the tutelage of others, is the Saturnian archetype in action. We should not fear Saturn, everything that brings, albeit difficult, it is a cosmic gift. One more chance to rectify, build, learn, free, express fundamental issues of our life. Without it, the soul will feel that is a waste of a life.
Don’t waste this energy by fearing it or denying it. Let it flow and go with it. The lesson that we cannot control everything is big with Saturn transits. We must prepare ourselves and work hard and then let it flow.

MARS IN SCORPIO from August 23rd until October 6th, 2012

The conjunction of Mars and Saturn in Libra (of the past 6 days), has left no doubt in anyone with Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) of the frustration which emerges from this combination. Mars and Saturn is really a difficult combination, because even though Saturn,especially in good aspect to Mars can truly structure it, more often than not would be frustrating for the person with such aspect, as Saturn forces Mars to confront its limitations, something which Mars does not respond very well to. This planet hates limitations and prefers freedom of action.
August 23rd Mars enters Scorpio, sign that rules together with Pluto. I think there is no doubt the connection between war and death, between confrontation and transformation, all SCORPIOS themes. It has not been in this sign since September 2010.

In its transit through Libra, which is about to end, Marts has inspired us to find a diplomatic solution to the confrontations that we encounter, and better still, a fair ending for the two parties; in its transit through Scorpio, though, diplomacy will lead to anger and a need to win which could be difficult to handle, for many. The need for Justice, will be replaced by the need to win at all costs. Secret topics become more evident and it is possible that more than one situation will come to light, previously, of a secret nature. Mars in Scorpio confronts us with our sexuality and our need to survive first and foremost. The darker motivations of our psyche, will emerge so we can be aware of what we are really capable of doing when our security and survival are threatened.

Those who have this natal position, will feel it strongly, because they will be undergoing the Mars return, which happens approximately every two years. We all know, yet have trouble recognizing, the power of contained rage, and its effect on our health. Often, depression, anxiety, reactions in the skin, excess activity and/or work, addiction, especially to sex, are directly linked with a personality that is unable to recognize and express anger. We are culturally conditioned to having to be “kind”, nice, cordial, all the time, as if that were possible. Anger is a human feeling as joy, sadness, passion, etc, but we strive to automatically associate it with violence and this is not necessarily true. Violence emerges when we deny our anger. Recognized and healthy expressions of anger avoid violence. Those who learn at an early age to express anger, get sick less.

People born with Mars in Scorpio, have an intensity that is unmanageable for many. With an extraordinary ability to get to the bottom of things and not be content with superficial explanations. This intensity can be used positively or negatively depending on the level of consciousness of the individual. It is an energy that is difficult to control, therefore, the lesson of control and containment is continuous. Mars in Scorpio, is very well expressed sexually, since that intensity allows the person the illusion of absolute union with the other(provided that Mars in Scorpio is not in contact with Saturn, for example). A conjunction of Mars-Saturn in Scorpio in a man, for example, can be particularly problematic. The need to perpetuate the species may be overwhelming for many, something that is kept in an unconscious state for most, disguised as a simple explanation like: ” i simply love sex”.

Mars enters Scorpio forming a sextile to the Sun and a trine to Neptune, exalting our need to help others and the awareness of other people’s pain, to then, sextile Mercury on September 5th, which gives us the opportunity to do research and concentrated work. Before entering Sagittarius October 7, it will form a square to Venus in Leo in the last days of September. The fixed signs, especially Aquarius and Taurus, feel their emotions soar though not necessarily in a negative way. Leo and Scorpio or those with planets in these signs shall be the depositaries of those emotional storms.

One of the evolutionary lessons of Mars in Scorpio is clearly that the need to perpetuate the specie must be controlled, that sexual union, does not mean owning the other, and that the need for total union with the other, may be achieved in many different ways. But above all, that separation, does not necessarily mean death. Mars in Scorpio, even those evolved souls, live through strong crisis and separations, until they learn what they have come to learn.They do not give up easily and if they fall, they do so, fighting. Revenge has a whole different meaning for Mars in Scorpio people, they enjoy it in a particularly intense way.

Let yourself be carried away by the intensity of these energies and incorporate risk and passion into your life, without victimizing yourself!

Celebrities with Mars in Scorpio: Leonardo di Caprio (rightly became Edgar Hoover in film), Maria Callas, Marie Curie, Gandhi, Mao Tse-tung, Eleonor Roosevelt, Albert Schweitzer, Robert F Kennedy, Jennifer Aniston, Vanessa Paradis, Grace Kelly, Jude Law, Mel Gibson( you only have to watch the films he’s directed), Ophra Winfred, Marilyn Manson (any doubt?) Joaquin Phoenix (el Gladiador), to name but a few.

Scorpio New Moon, November 5-6

Here we are in the Scorpio New Moon, when Both the Sun and the Moon find themselves at 13º Scorpio 40′. As we already know, new moons seem to start a new cycle, a new project, a new trend, which completes itself 2 weeks later when the next Full Moon . These cycles are sometimes at such a profound level, that we don’t even realize is happening.

This is the case with Scorpio. This sign is so profound and connects us with such inner dimensions that can be experienced as “uncomfortable” at best, or terrifying at worst, especially if you are an Air sign, but it can also be fascinating and magical, if you are a water or a fire sign. It is in this journey to the most secret part of your psyche that we encounter an array of nymphs, heroes, gods and s goddesses that turn our everyday life into an interesting fairytale or mythical story.

This New Moon offers us this possibility and as we open the door to the energies of it, first thing we encounter is Vesta or Hestia for the Greeks. This small asteroid of scarcely 450 to 600 km in diameter, was discovered on March 29, 1807 by Heinrich Wilhelm Olbers in the constellation of Virgo. Is part of a belt of asteroids between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, where Ceres and Pallas Athena, were discovered few years earlier. Juno finds herself there as well. They represent different aspects of the feminine in our lives.

Vesta is the daughter of Saturn (Chronos) and Rea, so she is an Olympian. In my opinion she is the true ruler of Virgo women. She represents the unmarried woman, same as Pallas. Except that Vesta was truly a virgin and was truly pure. She had no contact with men.

She is the Goddess of the Fire that warms our Home. Signifies the warmth that women are capable of bringing to a Home. Apolo and Poseidon offered her marriage but she remained true to herself and to her chastity vows and declined.

But what does she represent inside of us? She is our ability to remain true to ourselves, even in the eventuality of falling in love. Remaining a virgin, didn’t necessarily mean, no sex, but it meant not engaging in relationships.

In this New Moon we find the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Vesta in Scorpio. The intensity of these energies, will upset more than one relationship, many will be in the process of separation, many trying out a reconciliation, but the opportunity of this New Moon and Vesta is that of connecting with that part of ourselves that cannot be touched by power struggles. IT is our ability to follow out path and our calling, which takes us away from the loss of power inherent in many relationships.

To love does not mean to lose one’s power, to the point that if we realize that the present relationship does not allow us to grow, believe that we are trapped in it. We can always walk away. Never mind how difficult it seems. Vesta remind us of never getting to that point.

Vesta is the feminine principle in men and in women. If you are an Aquarian or a Leo, this could be a real situation in your life now. If you are a Cancerian or a Piscean, your relationships will become more intense and the opportunity to dig in and find out what is below the surface, is there for you. Aries and Libra, which are affected by Saturn and Pluto and their relationships are being tried as well, will get a chance to transform their approach to their relationships.

With all of what I said, it may sound that this would be a terrible 15 days to the next Full Moon in Taurus when this month’s cycle will conclude, but never forget that the transformative energies of Scorpio, can be extremely useful to take our minds and soul beyond the surface, beyond superficiality.

This is a good moment to really try to communicate your true feelings and find out what your “other one” is made of. What your relationship is made of.

If you are not in relationship, this is a great opportunity to connect to your work, your creativity and focus in what is important in your life. Vesta helps us focus on our true calling, our true work in life.

Mercury makes and exact square to Neptune, so it won’t be difficult to fantasize and create. The test of time will be necessary to make sure that what we see is real. It also contacts Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces, so new ideas and projects will present themselves, creating a more positive outlook of life.

Pluto and the North Node seem to support the Scorpian energies of the Moon, inducing us to dig in and connect with our most secret feelings. If you are brave enough to enjoy digging into yourself, you will definitely enjoy this New Moon.

Juno is also part of the equation, as it is in Sextile to the Sun and Moon, so it will help us find a compromise in our relationships. She is the opposite of Vesta, Juno was Hera in Greek Mythology and it represents the “Wife”, who remained married to Zeus, in spite of his unfaithfulness.

If you find yourself in a relationship where you seem to be alienated from your true path in life, use the energies of this Moon to connect to your inner Vesta and let her get you back on track.

The one person you cannot afford to betray, EVER,is yourself.
