This new moon in Aries conjunct Chiron, square the nodes is a new beginning, it may be painful and it will hurt (chiron) also a turning point between the past and future.
This new moon is about your courage to keep moving beyond this place you’re now facing, it will take all of your inner resources, nerve, will and confidence to move into the new beginnings as the old falls down. Feel it, heal it, work with all the tools/resources you have to keep you healthy, grounded and safe, it’s your inner well of courage that will get you there. Stay present in the moment, focus on the now, face what’s right in front of you.
Chiron conjuncts this new moon, feeling vulnerable, pain/wounded, Chiron being in Aries makes it proactive, the only way to work with Chiron is to heal what hurts. The more you work with the pain you discover the gifts of your healing, which brings in strength, wisdom and empowers you. This is Chiron gift.
Were moving into new territory with the square to the nodes, past and future, a choice is upon you, a turning point. South node (past) in Capricorn, structures, rules, tradition, the known, go North to Cancer (future), which is emotional stability and security, feeling safe. Check in with what’s inside of you, how much courage, trust, strength, self belief, self confidence do you have. Do you know or think you can make it without the old structures? It’s an Aries moon, you just have too, even if it feels unknown, uncomfortable and you feel vulnerable, which is part of the north nodes journey.
A full moon is happening in Virgo @20 degrees, 10th 3:47am(aest) a full moon brings about a conclusion or you see the totality of something.
This Virgo Full Moon is opposite Sun and Neptune in Pisces, trines Pluto/Jupiter in Capricorn, Mercury also stations direct in Pisces on the same day. A change can occur.
Hopefully, this moon will bring in a grounded and practical approach, in finding new solutions to any problems around confusion, vagueness, being lost, feeling stuck. Virgo full moon shifts/lift a little of this stuff.
Virgo is what you do in your daily life, Virgo is also asking you to make things better, taking care of whatever needs to get done at this time, this moon may highlight in practical, logical ways these things can be approached. Virgo finds solutions, you might find that you see something that you did not see before. Full Moon illuminates, reflects, brings things to the surface for you to see.
With Mercury, who rules Virgo, stationing to go direct and being in Aquarius you may get some new insight, information, communication in how to do this, or you may just get some answers to question that up until now have been lost in the emotional haze of the Pisces Sun conjunct Neptune. It may be delivered in a detached way, but will be clear.
Sun/Neptune conjunction, may have found you just wanting to float away, the emotions or feelings may have been making you feel stuck or just not enjoying yourself, however the Virgo Moon arrives in time, to ground, anchor and bring you back down to earth, to help you get clear about what to do next and how to do it.
Moon also gets support from Pluto/Jupiter in Capricorn, transformation, expansion, growth and optimism can help to turn things around. Also giving you the strength to do what needs to get done.
Look at where you are now and accept what is, accept your current reality, then you can figure out the next step. Trust you will know which way to proceed forward.
March is a month of change, many moves happen in the cosmos, Saturn enters Aquarius you get a little glimmer of Saturn’s stay there. Venus now in her home sign of Taurus, meets up with Uranus after the full moon, a wake up or surprise around your values, worth and self esteem, brings in the energy of freedom/liberation after perhaps being stuck. Sun also moves into Aries which is the beginning of the astrological year.
Best get out your own personal birth chart, now, and have a look at what areas of life this moon’s illuminating for you.
In general, new moons are about a beginning of something, this one may involve an ending, putting something to rest, letting go and surrendering. The Sun and Moon are conjunct to Mercury Rx, what have you been thinking about, what’s going on in your head, what are you communicating to yourself about or what’s stuck in your head that you keep going over? The thoughts you’re having may help with the beginning which is also the end. Another way is to be open, receptive and intuitive to help you find the beginning and the end.
Either, get out of your head and go into feeling or get in your head and pay attention to what is going on in there. Listen and feel, will lead to knowing. Keep in mind that this is a Pisces new moon, make sure that it’s all still rooted into reality, don’t go into delusion or illusion, sand castle in the sky mode, hopefully the earth bond energies will keep you grounded.
Mars in Capricorn is harmoniously connecting to this moon, if there’s any action or way to go, Mars helps you by showing you the way or what to do. It may come in a thought, an intuitive feeling, a deep knowing. You may find that this is a way through Moon, that get’s you out of a place, situation, something that’s been hanging around since December. Being a Pisces moon, there may be a surrendering of something, handing it over, relaxing into what is.
Trust in what you feel.
Uranus in Taurus, helping you to go forward into the new future, helping with any changes that you have been going through or that are happening. Both are in earth signs offering support and stability which helps you to build. Which is what we are all doing, building a new identity, life and world. Nice time to leave some things behind.
It’s about the way forward, this new moon is highlighting that you can only go that way, no going back, no matter how much you would like to. Big shifts and changes you have been going through.
The Pisces leads us to surrender to our life now, it’s different, yes, you’ve changed, yes and it’s time to be open and receptive to the new life that is.
Pisces is the end of the road.
Mercury is Rx, so the road my be a meandering and a winding one, so, it might take a while for the momentum to build.
Generally this connection is restless and brings with it a high vibe energy, it also brings with it a break away for freedom, the last chance to get away from limitations. Ideally it’s a time when you want to be assertive, well that’s the general idea. It can also be a sudden surprise in some form, you maybe impulsive, a desire is burning and the agitation gets to you. Taking care and pausing for a moment is very useful if this pair causes you to get ruffled and fired up, because they do bring the fire, it may come through as aggression, anger and being pissed off, people or you, may be overly assertive. Everybody wants things to change and maybe the friction will make that happen. Don’t get to caught up or let your impulses get carried away and take action that you may regret. Afterwards you see where you land, when Mars grounds down into Taurus tomorrow and reality sets in.
Wrapping up a story about identity, action and direction taken from 2010-2011, it’s an ending of Uranus’s time in Aries, where a lot happened, the goal was for you to change, to be someone new, to break away from all of the ties that held your personality in, a new you had to break out. Mars last pass by seals the deal. So, the question is where are you now? How have you changed over the last 7-8 years? How have you asserted, expressed yourself, either willing or being pushed and poked by other individuals, what are you left with? What was the motivation behind the action taken. What have you learnt about yourself from others?
Mars/Uranus conjunct may be asking or showing you, are you sparky enough, what ignites your passion or desire, what sparks and excites you? If there’s no spark, passion, desire and drive, where does that leave you, in what space? Feeling no passion or desire inside may be a good thing, you’re at a blank slate, there’s room for more discovery and working out what you value in the things you desire, which will be handy in the coming years.
Whatever is happening and it will be different for everyone. It’s the ending of a story, of an old identity, “who are you…. now” and where to go from here. Taurus: Mars leads the way enters tomorrow, Uranus follows in March, pay attention to this spot, you will get some glimmer or indication of what the Uranus in Taurus is for you.
Taurus is resources, survival, material, physical realms and values. In Aries you personally(self) were shaken in one way or another, in Taurus areas of money, possession or values are going to be awaken for change.
New Moon in Sagittarius – abundance, prosperity, fun, adventure, travel, stimulation. Some may be seeking more knowledge, wisdom, understanding and meaning to your life and this will prompt you to expand, go on a journey to new places and horizons.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is backing up the New Moon it’s ready to go, to expand, a big push energy, bold and enthusiastic. Mars conjunct Neptune is a new beginnings, a new dream or vision, the seeking of something more, taking you to a higher place/ground.
The square to Mars/Neptune in Pisces, brings in some tension or pressure to act, to get out from under it, you can feel irritated and restless, channel this energy into something positive to help you work it off or get you out of it. The square aspect between Sagittarius and Pisces the action or vision is lost. The arrow shoots out, you just don’t know where it is or where it will land. The elusiveness of Pisces can weaken the energy behind the action, also makes it difficult to control the outcome, a little faith and fate may be working and needed, plus being open minded, flexible and patient.
Sagittarius side is high energy, Pisces side is less so, this may mean that the dream, vision or goal(ultimate goal) has not really formulated yet(timing), either in your mind or heart and it’s not quite ready to come to full form or be seen. Keep paying attention, you will see or know it soon, that’s when to shoot or Go. (probably not until the new year). Feels like intentions setting of: waiting for the instinctual, natural, raw, response, knowing when to Go (you’re in the ready, again timing). Don’t let illusions, delusions, fears or false starts block you from achieving.
There’s a lot of water in the chart and planets in mutable signs, nothing is fixed to make it stick.
Mercury went Direct a few hours before this New Moon, information is still coming in.
Chiron goes Direct on the 9th, more healing to be done, wrap this up first.
Keep the faith and trust it! Which is what both these signs are about.
The year is wrapping up, here are some of the astro aspects for the month. It’s been a wild year, one with lots of twist, turns and surprises thanks to Uranus blowing out of Aries and into Taurus.
The month starts off with Moon in Virgo and ends the year with the Moon in Scorpio. Uranus will be the only planet Rx at end of year, goes Direct on January 7th in Aries. Just before Mars in Pisces hits is home sign of Aries on January 1st, he meets up with Chiron(feeling vulnerable/sore spot/wounding/healing), here you have the opportunity to heal or work with a sore spot, to turn a weakness into a strength. Taking some kind of action towards making something better. Which may be a good thing as this gives you the opportunity to take care of some of the areas of life that have been battered and bruised. Aries is the planet of action/direction but it’s also your identity, your fiery energized self. Mars bolts into Aries on Jan 1st, back to his home sign, Mars had a long rough Rx phrase this year and now is ready to go home to Aries, where the action planet is strong.
The list below are some aspects for this month.
Dec 1 – Venus opposite Uranus Dec 1 – 6:12 AM Mercury Rx enters Scorpio Dec 2 – Mercury quincunx Uranus Dec 3 – Sun square Mars Dec 3 – 12:02 PM Venus enters Scorpio Dec 6 – Sun square Neptune Dec 7 – Mercury Direct 27°Scorpio 16′

Full Moon is at 0 deg Gemini, November 23rd @3:39 pm.
It’s opposite Jupiter, which is conjunct Sun in Sagittarius, and squares Mars in Pisces.
Gemini is information, thinking, talking, communication, ideas and sometimes multiple choices. Sagittarius is the bigger picture, with so much happening in Sagittarius at the moment you may want to go big, be bold, move quickly, expand your world and be enthusiastic.
Mars and Jupiter are in very expansive signs and still in a square connected to this Full Moon adding the extra push to go beyond and expand.
Mercury is the ruler of this Moon, it’s Rx, going over information, details, for answers that you seek. Finding your truth or what is right for you is the real issue which will be in the information/details. If choices are to be made or looked at here again it’s in the conversation, information and details, it’s important to go over everything closely.
Sagittarius way or vibe is too sometimes just leap or skip over things, this probably is not the best idea for now. Searching through information or getting the right information is what you ideally need to do, Sagittarius is seeking to expand and go to the right new place and Gemini Moon can help you with this, but it’s going to be in the information, details, questioning to get you there. Mercury Rx you may go back to something of the past or it’s in the past.
This is high energy vibe and you may want to move fast, however it’s better to go slower. Mars in Pisces, Jupiter in Sagittarius expansive energy can take you further than you anticipated. You might just slip into something only to find you have to get back out again.
Wait until Mercury goes Direct if you can, when it’s a lot clearer and you can be sure.
As always go check out your birth chart for a more personal look at how and where this Full Moon in happening.
Breaking down the barriers, the only way through is with kindness…..feeling every little heartfelt moment at a time.
I have the Cancer/ Capricorn Nodes in my birth chart, and I have to say, when I first learnt about the Nodes, the key to work through some karma, the place to head towards I was excited, until I realised I would have to discover and enter the world of my feelings, emotions, being vulnerable and then I just got scared, what is this place?, I asked myself. Then of course I felt them ALL!
Over time of course it gets easier, I did feel more comfortable with them, I did settle into them, I still long for the good old days when I was too busy to feel, it’s always going to feel better to me if I don’t have to feel/care and don’t have to connect, let something in. Because if you stop for long enough, let all of the feelings in, it kinda creates a mashup of madness, hysteria, love and joy, it’s one big melting pot.
Nodes of fate, destiny and karma, enter into cardinal signs of Cancer (North) and Capricorn (south), the Nodes are re-directors. With them changing into Cancer/Capricorn you’re headed for the Cancer nodal axis to help you on the path.
Feeling! yes, feelings are going to be a major player in this one, you gotta feel them, follow the path that feels right, follow your heart. It’s less about the “shoulds”, doing or being task or goal oriented, this is still part of it, of course but now your compass is attached to the feeling zone to direct you. This may make you uncomfortable particularly if you hate doing that job, or if you just cannot stand that thing or person, if you’re just not “feeling it” anymore this is where you are going to get really uncomfortable and tired.
Sometimes you can forget who you are! with all the working, achieving and doing that you do. Helps you to focus on the external world, and to disconnect from self.
The way forward is through the inner world of self, feeling, getting back in touch with you. This is where the true security lies, being emotionally self-reliant, to be able to bend and flow, with whatever life brings your way.
So when your asked how are you feeling, now is a good time to know.
You’re leaving behind a place you know well, the South Node (Capricorn) it’s the physical, material, financial realms, the work you do, task orientated, the goals you set for yourself, the rules, being the authority, structures and guidelines, patriarchy, the old ways of doing, being detached, cold and aloof. These are all still important, however it’s now time to put a little feeling, love, kindness and care into all that you do…..you can loosen up.
South Nodes deal with karma…..that word! Past karma, past lives, the yesterdays of your life. What you need to sort out this life. This is also familiar territory, you know well, very easy to stay with what you know.
The North Node is the future, possibility of making changes. Not so familiar path that’s uncomfortable to you, especially for the work alcoholic, the doer, likes the rules or lives a rigid structured life, in Cancer/Capricorn, which is what you will be working with here.
North Node is what you gotta do, to master the South, to sort this out. And like I said earlier it’s about feelings, self-care, having a rest, relaxing a little or even a lot.
So, if you’re tired, take a rest.
Stop with the “shoulds”
Take the time to nurture yourself.
If you’re going to fast, slow it down, stop and smell the flowers along the way.
Sit with your feelings.
Ask yourself, how safe, secure, supported and protected do you feel.
The Nodes it’s a 18 year cycle. The last times we had the Nodes in Cancer-Capricorn
April 10, 2000 – October 31, 2001
September 25, 1981 – March 16, 1983
December 24, 1962 – August 25, 1964.
November brings in some changes, big changes, hope you’re ready.
Some stories or themes will still be playing out as some planets are still Rx and have to do their thing, before they wrap a story.
Mercury goes Rx, which is always a treat.
Jupiter is going home into Sagittarius, Jupiter’s is a 12 year cycle, and now the big planet is home, (Jupiter rules Sag). After spending a year in Scorpio, where Jupiter took you to some scary places within. Once Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, you may be able to turn all of the emotional experiences into wisdom, understanding and knowledge. Sagittarius is the sign to help you understand what the hell that was all about, not just about you but the world you live in.
Nodes of fate, destiny and karma move out of Leo/Aquarius and into Cancer/Capricorn.
