Early Monday morning, August 25, 2014, 9:12am, CDT: the Moon is in the New phase with both Sun & Moon together at 2*18 earthy, adaptable, creative Virgo. New Beginnings…planting seeds.
The intellectual, conscientious, discerning Virgo energy represents qualities that are organized, detailed, economical, technical, analytical, skillful, helpful & humble. Everyone has this electromagnetic field as part of their astrological birthchart; currently the two Lights, the conscious Sun & the unconscious Moon, are emphasizing these traits in varying degrees of efficiency & practicality. Discriminating Virgo approaches life with integrity, discipline, thoughtfulness & desires to feel useful in some form of service.
Although Virgo is naturally aligned with our fastest transmitter, logical, communicative, Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods, it is also connected to the fertile Earth, nature & wholeness adapting a path of clarity; an awareness of the connection between body & mind…the healing or healthy working of the body which corrects its own imbalances. Faith & trust in the Natural Harmonious Order is pertinent to this process.
When the Virgo in us feels insecure the impulse to heal can distort the above characteristics into being critical, judgmental, perfectionistic, worrisome, nitpicking, obsessive-compulsive…Love yourself.
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
•••Also on Monday at 2:30pm take advantage of the laser beam combo of both active, assertive, inspired Mars & focused, responsible, hard-working Saturn at 17* intense, powerful Scorpio to do some amazing cathartic, cleansing transformation somewhere in your life!

Sunday, August 10, 2014, 1:09 pm, CDT: The conscious Yang energy of our Sun at 18* self-expressive, flamboyant Leo is exactly 180* opposite the instinctual Yin energy of the Moon at 18* non-conventional, spontaneous, tolerant Aquarius during this Full Moon. The Sun, perfectly at home in creative, charismatic & commanding Leo, operates quite vibrantly in its own electromagnetic field.
Aquarius is the electrical air sign, not known for being very emotional. It is associated with Uranus-the uncertainty principle-which symbolizes the instant, unpredictable, out-of-the-blue changes that operate in our lives…sometimes more personal depending on your chart & the transits, but Uranus, along with other outer planets, can indicate impersonal changes that occur on Earth such as those major events/transformations that are affecting multitudes of sentient Beings. (Click the Uranus Square Pluto on sidebar for much more information of these transitions.)
The freedom-loving, rebellious, individualizing, outlaw Uranus also manifests as genius, invention, imagination, innovation & the instant knowing that we call intuition…it’s like a direct line to another frequency which totally bypasses the mental realm. We will never become stagnant with Uranus around.
Uranus at 16* Aries is beneficially aspecting three personal transmitters; communicator Mercury at 20* Leo, the Sun (the evolving higher self) & the Moon (the unconscious sensitive & responsive self) at 18* Leo & Aquarius respectively during this Full Moon time. We can be conduits of knowledge & information which include the heart (Leo)! Balance & integrate both electromagnetic vibrations.
The faster moving, assertive & passionate Mars at 8*38 intense, complex Scorpio is currently closing in on concentrated, committed & disciplined Saturn at 16*59 resourceful Scorpio; Saturn will temper the direct, competitive, impulsive Warrior planet Mars which will be exactly conjunct purposeful Saturn on Monday, August 25th at 17* penetrating Scorpio. This powerful duo will blend together in the most powerful, cathartic sign and become like a laser beam of focused energy toward organization, healing, regeneration & constructiveness, as they help initiate, inspire & pioneer the transformations we want to experience in our world.
Restrictive, responsible Saturn, the Teacher, also makes many challenging aspects to Mercury, Sun, Moon & Uranus now. Don’t let frustration, inhibitions, fear & insecurity turn you into a crystallized Being…allow yourself to continue gaining wisdom from experience.

“Astrology only correlates to reality, it does not cause it.” J.Wolf Green
A Leo New Moon!! The light shines bright in radiant, self-assured Leo...especially for people born during the royal Lion’s reign… or those who have this sign as their ascendant, Moon sign, with planets placed here or in the 5th house of their birthchart. At any rate each one of us has every sign & every planet somewhere in our chart.
Early evening on Saturday, July 26, 2014, 5:42 pm, CDT, both Sun (will, vitality, potential) & Moon (instincts, emotions, responses) are at the exact same degree of 3*52 creative, flamboyant, generous, playful Leo. The giant optimistic, jovial Jupiter, transmitter that expands upon & magnifies everything it touches, is tightly conjunct the luminaries at 2*20 Leo. What a wonderful opportunity to spread the love, warmth & self-confidence of this magnanimous, dynamic energy.
The Sun is naturally at home in the electromagnetic field of big-hearted, dramatic Leo. Self-expression, romance & having fun could be emphasized at this New Moon phase of new beginnings, along with commanding, authoritative, proud & dignified behavior. Creative outlets are necessary for ambitious Leo….it symbolizes “the child within” also needing a lot of attention & appreciation; it can manifest in an egocentric, stubborn & dictatorial fashion at times. Leo is a natural leader & with power comes responsibility…you’ve heard it before…the power of love or the love of power.
All flower photos are from my yard where the wind rarely stops, so I sometimes think of them as more like paintings.
All three spheres (Sun, Moon, Jupiter) in fiery Leo are challenging (squaring) frisky, fearless, impulsive Mars at 1* intense, deep, mysterious Scorpio (Mars is co-ruler of Scorpio…therefore strongly positioned) during this New Moon. Could be stressful…find some hard work to do with love & creativity.
We are immersed in powerful cosmic frequencies so far beyond our little Earth, our solar system, the Milky Way Galaxy, etc….I highly recommend the 2010 series “How The Universe Works” on Netflix. The visuals are worth it if nothing else. Consider how you’re putting your energy out to the world while currently in physical form.

Every one of us has all 12 astrological signs & all the planets somewhere within our birthcharts.
Early Saturday morning, July 12, 2014, 6:25am, CDT: We are immersed in a potentially wild & crazy Capricorn Full Moon… although Cap is not known for wild & crazy… other current transmitters & electromagnetics mirror this possibility.
The Sun (our conscious will & purpose) is at 20*03 sensitive, psychic, nurturing, water-sign Cancer 180* opposite the Moon (our instinctual, emotional self) at 20*03 disciplined, realistic, serious, Earth-sign Capricorn. The Sun & Moon symbolize complementary opposites which need integration during the Full Moon. They are the polar manifestations of the same primal, undifferentiated Divine force. Every 29 days the lunar orb circles home planet Earth resulting in 8 repeating moon phases. (For more Cancer info see previous blog on Cancer New Moon.)
At this time both luminaries have formed an uncomfortable, tense square aspect with the radical, unpredictable, extremist Uranus. This electrical, high-frequency transmitter liberates us from our known & familiar world, i.e. the Awakener. The sudden-change of unexpected, shocking, intuitive Uranus at 16*28 assertive, confident, independent, action-oriented Aries is still making a fairly close (within 4*) & stressful aspect to the complex scenarios of the regenerating, mysterious, compulsive, hidden depths of transforming Pluto at 12* structured, conservative, responsible, cautious, material-world Capricorn.
The next square of Uranus/Pluto is exact on December 16th, 2014; this will be the 6th of 7 exact 90* angles between these two outer, transpersonal planets. I know I’m having a hard time keeping up with life…learning more about how to flow.
Speaking of Pluto…it is sitting only 8* from the Capricorn Full Moon, adding additional power to our emotional transformations. What an opportunity!! We have another major chance to release old stuck emotions that have become toxic… lightening our load… preparing for what is to come. As Disraeli put it “The secret to success is constancy to purpose.”
Patient, persevering Saturn, associated with Capricorn but currently at 17* Scorpio, the Cancer Sun & this Capricorn Full Moon are all making beneficial aspects to Chiron…the healing transmitter. Chiron pertains to our “wounds”, even ones traveling through our DNA. It represents our ability to heal ourselves & assist others. Relationships are prime to go through potentially healthy transformations if we choose.
“I am a spiritual being having a physical experience.”
I am tuning in more often to my intuition & it works!

~Everyone has all the planets & all the signs somewhere in their birthchart~
The very sensitive, psychic & receptive Cancer New Moon is exact on Friday, June 27, 2014 at 3:08am. Both conscious Sun & instinctual Moon are at the same degree of 5*37 imaginative, vulnerable, subjective Cancer revealing multiple tides of FEELINGS, coming in & going out, connected to the unconscious. New Moons are a time of conception & new birth, hidden from our view as the seed grows within.
This moody water sign operates from the gut & needs to give & receive emotional warmth & security. The family (of origin or choice), the nest, home-base, even country, are especially important to those with supportive, nurturing, caring Cancer energy emphasized in their birthchart; we all have it somewhere.
Tenacious, industrious, creative Cancer, symbolized by the armored Crab, is associated with the right-brain oriented, responsive Moon…the dimensions of the inner life are absolutely important; Cancers are here to feel… which is why they need their shell for protection….to not be overwhelmed.
Just don’t allow safety to become so important that growth is inhibited by building too many impenetrable defenses. The protective & sometimes fearful crab needs to periodically break out of its hard shell in order to continue evolving.
The Cancer Sun & Moon are opposing cathartic Pluto at 12* Capricorn during this New Moon time. Transformation is definitely on the program. Powerful, intense, complex Pluto represents penetrating into the deep unconscious realms, undoubtedly magnifying what sensitive Cancer is already experiencing emotionally.
Purging, purifying Pluto’s influence, as core energy, works from inside the nucleus of whatever it touches upon (planets & signs in our case) & moves outward from the center. On many levels Pluto signifies death, destruction, breaking down, upheaval, release, cleansing, renewal, healing, creation, revitalization, regeneration, metamorphosis, transmutation & rebirth. It is our genetic evolution; Plutonian power cannot be controlled but rather focalized. Esoterically it represents returning to the Source… use your power wisely.
Assertive, fearless, enthusiastic, confident Mars, symbolizing action, is now (late Tuesday/early Wednesday June 25th) opposite intuitive, sudden, unexpected, unpredictable Uranus, changing our status quo from familiar to unfamiliar, which isn’t good or bad…it just is.
Both Mars & Uranus are also still making a challenging aspect to Pluto during this New Moon, adding to the ongoing turmoil/transformation.
Farewell until next time fellow members of evolving Consciousness!

A fiery Sagittarius Full Moon accompanies our Being on Thursday, June 12, 2014, 11:11pm, CDT. The Moon at 22*06 visionary Sagittarius is 180* opposite the rational Gemini Sun at 22*06. The Full Moon is the peak blossoming phase of the eight Moon phases; whatever energy was seeded during the New Moon phase is now visible in our lives…a creation of some sort. It also shows us where we will need to find a balance of the polarity between the two signs. Know when to talk, know when to listen.
Expansive, understanding, outspoken, generous Sag is on the search for life’s meaning, expressing faith, idealism, tolerance, wisdom & good will. Witty, alert, articulate, inquisitive & changeable Gemini speeds around in every direction, absorbing all that it sees, hears, feels, smells & tastes… then this airy sign communicates this information in a number of way & a variety of forms.
Abundant, adventurous Jupiter, our solar system’s largest transmitter, is the optimistic, enthusiastic Sagittarius home planet. During this Sun/Moon opposition benevolent Jupiter is at 22*49 emotional, receptive & protective Cancer. Beware of moodiness, hypersensitivity & insecurities as much emotional content (current & old stuff) is now being processed & transformed.
The ruler of intelligent Gemini, is the data collector & the communicative Mercury, which is currently retrograde at 2* psychic, imaginative Cancer. Communications (spoken, felt, acted, expressed) with family of origin or those we consider our family, our security needs, how we nurture, our home base…is emphasized emotionally & spiritually. How do you communicate your needs? Letting go of fear is one of my major hurdles.
The Wounded Healer Chiron is aspecting both the Sag Moon & the Gemini Sun creating an opportunity for a tremendously powerful, healing consciousness expanding experience. Be open & receptive, even if the ….hits the fan!

Wednesday, May 28, 2014, 1:40pm, CDT: A lighter energy with this adaptable air sign! Together Sun (of the conscious self) & Moon (the unconscious) are exact at 7*21 communicative, connecting Gemini during the New Moon…a welcome breath of fresh air! Remember we all have interactive, flexible Gemini somewhere in our natal birth charts.
New Moon equals new beginnings in some area of life…be open to learning, teaching, sharing or just plain observing & absorbing the world around you. Inquisitive, bright, articulate, witty & social Gemini loves to accumulate information…its speedy & unexpected butterfly mind needs constant stimulation..it lives for the immediate & doesn’t do well with boredom, routine or repetition. The transmitter Mercury is the home planet of this changeable, logical electromagnetic sign.
The quick, rational, versatile, data-collecting Mercury, the part of us that gathers, computes & broadcasts info, turns Retrograde (backward) on Saturday, June 7th at 3* Cancer & backtracks through Gemini until July 1st when it turns Direct (forward) at 24* Gemini. A retrograde period, which happens about 3X a year for Mercury, offers more opportunity to process what has been learned; a time of review, reflection, reconsider, re-orienting, re-evaluating, sometimes re-doing…hopefully we can then begin a new cycle mentally refreshed.
Take care of the body now; don’t let your nervous system get too frazzled. I have to force myself to stop gardening to eat & rest! Watch for a tendency to be scattered, inconsistent, impatient or indecisive during this busy time.
This blog is short because its planting time!!!

The polarity of the Full Moon occurs Wednesday, May 14th, 2014, 2:16 pm, CDT; our resourceful, productive, grounded Taurus Sun at 23*55 is exactly opposite Moon at 23*55 magnetic, powerful, intense Scorpio.
The illuminating Full Moon phase, when Sun & Moon appear to be of equal size, symbolizes the alchemical image of the sacred marriage of Sol & Luna...primetime to integrate the opposition of masculine/feminine archetypes within…balancing these contradictions of the self is our Full Moon challenge & opportunity. The collective world will respond as well.
Sensual Taurus energy is usually calm, loyal, stable, trustworthy, consistent & dependable unless pushed too far. The emotional, feeling, reactive Moon in complex, transforming Scorpio has the potential to become very extreme, obsessive, controlling & destructive or will express in deep transformation, regeneration & cathartic healing.
Refined, attracting Venus, now at 13* impulsive Aries, is naturally associated with reliable Taurus. The natural ruler of Scorpio, extra-sensory perceptive, revitalizing, core power planet Pluto, is currently at 13* Capricorn. (Mars was considered the 1st ruler of Scorpio until Pluto was discovered in 1930.)•(Pluto is still considered a planet in the astrological world!!) Our personal & collective values, our capacity to create & maintain beauty/harmony, cooperation, compromise & to form loving relationships is experiencing tremendous change.
So have things eased up in our cosmic neighborhood?! Well, even though assertive, courageous, active Mars, now at 9* social Libra, has moved out of the Grand Cross exact alignment of April, relieving some of the stress… this Warrior planet is still treading on the toes of many of his fellow transmitters during the Scorpio Full Moon on Wednesday afternoon.
Mars turns Direct at 9* Libra on May 19th, 2014, after an extra long retrograde (backward) trip through cooperative, mediating Libra…giving us more opportunity to address relationship issues, reflect upon our value system & focus on our balancing act as we let go of old, outdated energies & remain open to receive the new frequencies.
I’m trying to keep these Moon entries short & to the point, especially after last month. I love sharing the information but I need boundaries in my enthusiasm..the Sag in me! Thank you for reading this and thanks for comments.

Taurus New Moon/Solar Eclipse 4.29.2014 April 26, 2014Posted by cosmicsense in astrology, New Moons, Taurus.

~As Above So Below~
Tuesday, early morning, April 29, 2014: we experience the fixed Earthy Taurus New Moon/Solar Eclipse at 1:14 am, CDT. Both Sun & Moon are together (conjunct) at 8*52 resourceful, grounded Taurus. This productive sign of the Bull is the symbol of determined practicality, endurance, stability, proficiency in the material world, & has a strong connection to Mother Earth. Both luminaries, the consciousness of the Sun & the instinctual, feeling nature of the Moon, are providing a vessel/container/soil for seed energies to sprout. The New Moon is perfect for new beginnings. Focus your attention & energy into whatever you want to have more of in your life.
The Taurus Sun & Moon/Solar Eclipse are making flowing aspects to both inspirational, compassionate Neptune at 7* imaginative Pisces which breaks down boundaries & expands our state of consciousness; and to the concentrated, regenerative Pluto power of intense core energy, at 13*32 Capricorn, allowing us to purge, cleanse, heal. The peaceful bull is strong, quiet & deliberate unless provoked…the Taurus part of us will benenfit from easing up on acquistitiveness & possessiveness…even though Taurus does not change without a struggle. Harmonizing, receptive Venus, at 25*43 ethereal, artistic, universal Pisces, is the transmitter associated with reliable, trustworthy Taurus, representing the essential sensual feminine; Venus is currently making a beneficial aspect with responsible, structured Saturn at 21* intense, magnetic Scorpio, building something of value.
During a Solar Eclipse the Moon (the past) aligns right between our dynamic Sun (the future) & home planet Earth (the present /current reality). The narrow ring of Sun now visible is mostly overshadowed by the dark mask of Moon, symbolizing unconscious desires dominating conscious ones; information such as old patterns, status-quo conditioning, feelings, habits, etc. previously hidden by the day’s brightness is suddenly exposed; unexpected situations may pop up, revealing insights & opportunities or disclosing clouded, incomplete awareness which could limit one’s perspective. However, the Past & the Present must come to terms before further development proceeds. The placement of 8*52 Taurus in the birthchart would affect the intensity & magnitude of this process. Allow realistic calmness help you with detachment where & when needed.
Just to remind you: we have lived with extremely complicated astrological configurations lately, mirroring the transformation all sentient beings have been experiencing.This includes the past Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse on April 15th, the 5th Uranus/Pluto square on April 21st, the infrequent & stressful Cardinal Grand Cross action all last week, and now this New Moon/Solar Eclipse on April 29th. The effects of these cosmic transmitters are timeless, reflecting our DNA evolutionary journey as we become more of who we truly are.

Libra Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse 4.15.2014 April 11, 2014Posted by cosmicsense in Aries, astrology, Full Moons, Libra, Lunar Eclipse.

~Everyone has all the signs & all the planets somewhere in their birthchart~
Tuesday, early morning, 2:42 am, CDT, April 15, 2014: the exact time of the social & intellectual Libra Full Moon & Total Lunar Eclipse…less than a week before the Cardinal Grand Cross of April 20th-23rd. Monday, the 21st, is the day the radical-disruptor, high frequency Uranus at 13*34 vigorous, impulsive Aries is exactly square the intense, concentrated transformative power of Pluto at 13*34 structured, traditional Capricorn…(more info below).
A Lunar Eclipse acts as a cosmic regulator that maintains balance on Earth, often through crisis situations; the Lunar Eclipse only happens during a Full Moon when Earth, exactly in-between the Sun & Moon, blocks the Sun’s light from the Moon. We could say this is a Full Moon in Hyper-drive…extraordinary stress, tension & accomplishment. It is an opportunity to throw off restrictions of the past indicating a major turning point in our spiritual/psychological growth. This current transformative process involves our electromagnetic Sun at 25*16 active, independent, assertive Aries opposite Full Moon at 25*16 cooperative, partnership-oriented, harmonizing Libra.
The self-aware, initiating Aries Sun is naturally associated with Warrior Mars, the Yang transmitter of courage, confidence, directness & passion. At this time retrograde Mars is in gentle, agreeable Libra at 16*. Not an easy placement for feisty Mars as Libra dislikes discord and can vacillate, hesitate & be indecisive at times. However if pushed too far, this combo can explode in a temper of sudden violence. There are now many strong, challenging aspects going on, which I will cover below for the readers who care to dip in a little deeper. We certainly feel the energies! Be aware of rashness, harsh words/behaviors, aggressive actions, non-cooperation & selfishness. Fury, violence & wars are extremes of undeveloped Mars. Balance the forces in the energy you put into the large & small choices you continually make. It matters.
The Goddess of love, peace & beauty, Venus, is the considerate, receptive planet associated with diplomatic Libra (and Taurus), the sign of the Full Moon. The Yin transmitter Venus currently at 10* visionary, inspiring, spiritual Pisces is sitting in-between compassionate, idealist Neptune at 6* unifying Pisces & teacher/healer Chiron at 15* transcendental Pisces….perhaps our saving grace due to the beneficial aspects they are making to other planets.
••The following paragraph is for the more astrologically knowledgeable…skip this piece it if you don’t want your mind completely boggled! It is regarding the CARDINAL GRAND CROSS that spans April 20th through April 23rd & it incorporates the 5th Uranus/Pluto square which is exact on April 21st. In other words…Power & intensity to the Max!!
Easter Sunday, April 20th, starts a potent, complex & intense week of planetary alignments. These impact both our personal stage & the collective on Earth. I have written many times about the 5th Uranus/Pluto square (of 7 total from 2012 to 2015) in previous blogs. See sidebar for more complete information on that. This major life-changing aspect will be happening for these faster moving planets (Mars & Jupiter) to bounce off of during the Grand Cross. My graphics are the best I could do so imagine the red box to be a perfect square.
Starting on April 20th expansive, intuitive Jupiter, which magnifies whatever it contacts, reaches 13*+ Cancer where it will be opposing Pluto 13*34 Capricorn & squaring both Uranus 13*34 Aries & Mars at 13*+ Libra. Then Mars, moving retrograde opposes Uranus & squares both Pluto & optimistic, generous Jupiter. These mathematical aspects of oppositions & squares reflect challenge, confrontation, tension & stress. They involve the four cardinal signs (which begin each season) & this describes ACTION…conscious change is called for…focused energy toward what is for the highest good of all. What to do? Go with the flow…everything is changing at warp speed…some energies are in the process of crystallization & others are in process of breaking up crystallizations. Remember we signed up for this.
