NEW MOON, Monday, December 2nd, 2013, 6:22 pm, CST: we will be in immersed in the expansive, fiery, adaptable Sagittarian electromagnetic energy field as we experience both the conscious Sun & instinctual Moon at the exact same degree of 10*59 optimistic, enthusiastic, visionary Sagittarius. A New Moon is always a time of new beginnings. What are your dreams? What seeds are you going to plant?
The symbol for intuitive, philosophical, open-minded Sagittarius is the archer aiming the arrow upward/outward toward great heights, aspiring for the “truth” & self-improvement. The well-known phrase here is “I see the goal, I reach the goal, and then I see another.” Very idealistic & hopeful.
Not only a seeker of the meaning of life… spontaneous, romantic Sag is also represented by the freedom-loving, somewhat wild, independent, adventurous & jovial centaur who often just wants to have fun!! Nothing in Excess are worthy Sufi words to keep in mind!
Traveling (in or out-of-body), the outdoors/nature (don’t fence me in!) & higher mind pursuits are very important to the Sag part of us, emphasized if it is your Sun sign, or Moon, Ascendant, planets in 9th house, etc. It has a place in everyone’s birth chart. Be aware of the underbelly of this sign possibly exposing opinionated attitudes, impracticality, tactlessness & extravagance.
Due to Thanksgiving & all, this blog is short & almost too late but here it is! (funny that Thanksgiving is in Sagittarius, speaking of excess)
I listen to Jonathan Overby on PBS Wisc. on Saturday nights & recently caught words to an African song? I liked that went something like this…
“my friend, my friend… this life may be long, this life may be short…manage it in a way that suits you…”

“Astrology only correlates to reality-it does not cause it” J Wolf Green
Sunday, November 17th, 2013, 9:15am, CST: the Moon is Full at 25*26 earthy, dependable, practical, patient & sensual Taurus & is exactly opposite the powerful Sun at 25*26 mysterious, magnetic, emotional, sexual, water-sign Scorpio. Most of us are aware that energies are stronger & more emotionally loaded during the cyclical Full phase of our lunar orb. Taurus holds on & accumulates; Scorpio lets go & eliminates. The stable Taurus part of us needs to be resourceful & productive whereas the complex Scorpio in us has a need for deep involvements & intense transformation.
Both signs are fixed which represents stored power… persistent, very powerful, persevering, consistent, determined Taurus & Scorpio energy are perfect to build & establish a state of unity & continuity toward whatever goals, ideals or core idea we want to focus on especially at this Full Moon time.
Strong Solar winds from our massive Sun will be bombarding us on the 17th according to SpaceWeather.com… they have been quite active since the last two eclipses; and also with the potent, stressful Uranus/Pluto square (Nov.1st) we definitely have had our share of intense, disruptive weather, winds, storms, extremes, temperature shifts, etc.
As home planet Earth changes so it is with our bodies & brains which are being rewired as we’re moving out of the narrow linear 3D reality. Many other sources regularly speak to this collective transformation & I believe it.
The Love goddess Venus (associated with grounded, sensible, security-conscious, artistic Taurus) is currently at 11* Capricorn… it has been sitting close to the in-depth, complex, heavy-duty Pluto at 9*49 Capricorn for about a week. Giving & receiving affection could be detached & reserved in practical, disciplined Capricorn but alongside Pluto it will be more passionate, extreme, intense & possibly obsessive.
Adding more stress, Venus, as well as Pluto, makes a very challenging aspect to unpredictable, radical, sudden-change, freedom loving Uranus at 9* spontaneous Aries. Choose words wisely…hugs are better than daggers on various levels. Who & what do you value? Many other planetary aspects mirror the ease & experience of loving, sharing, cooperating & healing.
The Sun moves into Sagittarius Thursday, Nov. 21st, 9:48pm, CST.

YES! YES! YES! Let’s have an amazing transformative time during this introspective, INTENSE Scorpio New Moon & Solar Eclipse! The New Moon phase is exact early on Sunday, November 3rd, 2013, at 6:50 am, CST; both Sun & Moon at 11*16 resourceful, determined, passionate Scorpio.
Complex Scorpio is all about transformation on every level.. death & regeneration…physical, emotional, mental, psychological & spiritual. It is a fixed water sign. The quality of being fixed can range from sustainment, preservation & stability to stubbornness & resistance to change. The water element refers to the feeling principle; with attributes of nurturance, the mysterious, the hidden, the unconscious, deep emotions, sensitivities & the psychic realms. We all have this energy somewhere in our chart, but some have much emphasis upon it, such as the Sun, ascendant, Moon, 8th house planets or any transmitters in the Scorpio electromagnetic field.
Warrior Mars was the early ruler of Scorpio until cathartic Pluto was discovered. (I still consider it a planet). Pluto definitely plays a major role in our current Cosmic scene as it represents those elements which have not yet been integrated into our collective consciousness. As the God of the Underworld, many pitfalls lurk here; obsession-compulsion, jealousy, hatred, abuse, domination of others, manipulation, taboo areas, power-hungary, violence…you get the idea.
The awesome power & magic of regenerative Scorpio comes with the achievement of self-mastery. Constantly giving birth to the self; purging, cleansing, forgiving (of self too), healing, revitalizing & renewal… allowing transformation on a deep level will naturally facilitate the healing gifts which can then help others.
Of course adding to the intensity of life we’re right on the heels of quick-change Uranus at 9*25 fiery Aries squaring (challenging) Pluto at 9*25 pragmatic Capricorn; they are exactly 90* from each other on Nov. 1st. We experience the ramifications for quite a while & we have 3 more exact squares between these two dynamic spheres through to March 2015. See sidebar for more.
The New Moon symbolizes new beginnings, not yet visible or even consciously known, as in the germinating of the seed beneath the ground. This is the cyclical phase of creation & new birth. The manifestation of a new self being born fits the Scorpio vision energy of transformation. The magnificent vitality of the Eagle is one of the symbols of perceptive, magnetic, reserved Scorpio. The Moon is right in-between the Earth & our Sun now during this Solar Eclipse. We are clearing up some old issues, etc. in order to more freely embrace the future.
This particular Cosmic situation has so much potential because of the multitude of aspects to Saturn, Moon, Sun, North Node & Mercury, which are all sitting closely together in a powerful Scorpio stellium. (group of planets very close to the same degree). We came to Earth to go through these changes & we can do it!
Mercury turns Direct on Sunday, Nov. 10th, 3:12pm, CST. Hopefully the external reality confusion & mistakes will be decreasing.
The present moment may not always be an easy place to be but what else do we really have? I’m done with holding on…I’m just going to flow~~~

Aries Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse 10.18.2013 October 16, 2013Posted by cosmicsense in Aries, astrology, Full Moons, Lunar Eclipse.

Nature grounds me, calms me & heals me
Friday evening, October 18, 2013, 6:38 pm, CDT: The Moon is exactly full at 25*45 innovative, active, independent Aries opposite our Sun at 25*45 cooperative, social, diplomatic Libra. The Moon (Yin energy) relates to the instinctive & emotional response nature, and the Sun (Yang energy) signifies a more conscious energy of will, vitality & purpose.
During a Lunar Eclipse the Sun, Earth & Moon astronomically line up into a straight row. The Moon loses its reflected light from the Sun as the Earth passes directly between them. A regular Full Moon is powerful enough but when also part of a Lunar Eclipse configuration we experience an increase in the dynamic frequencies of the participating electromagnetic fields. This acts as a cosmic regulator that maintains balance on Earth. Each eclipse is activated somewhere in the map of everyone’s natal birthchart. It shows where change is necessary, often reflecting a crisis to call our attention to a situation….especially now during these quickly changing, faster paced, accelerated times.
Assertive, adventurous, daring, masculine Mars is the home planet of direct, enthusiastic, courageous, pioneering Aries. Feminine Venus, transmitter of love, peace, beauty & harmony, is naturally associated with artistic, compromising, partner-oriented Libra (& Taurus). This emphasis of the two “me” & “we” signs symbolize actively following one’s own desire nature while also considering others. Don’t let the Aries energy turn too selfish, impatient, careless or rashly aggressive. Watch so the Libran factor doesn’t lapse into indecision, over-dependency, idleness & passivity. The art of balancing these opposing qualities is the key during this Lunar Eclipse…either on a personal level or collectively.
Information & mobility expert, tiny, speedy, techno Mercury at 18* Scorpio, turns Retrograde on Monday, Oct. 21st at 5:29 am, CDT through November 10th. This apparent backward movement does not really cause things to happen but it seems like a popular time for possible machine break-downs, miscommunications, delays, etc. We could use this period to reflect upon & reconsider past issues or communications. (Note: if you have Mercury retrograde in your natal chart, it operates in a different way, not like the above description.)
The Sun moves into Scorpio at 1:10 am, CDT, on October 23rd.
Two different worlds!!! I love living by Lake Superior! You can enlarge photo by clicking on it & see Market sign down by water!
I will mention that the stressful, challenging aspect between Uranus (the radical disruptor) & Pluto (death & rebirth, transformation) is getting closer to the 4th exact 90 degree square which manifests on Oct. 31st/ Nov.1st, 2013. We are experiencing this in all areas of Earth existence. We have had 3 of 7 of these exact squares already & will have 3 more after this one; these particular cosmic events last from 2012 to 2015. (See Uranus square Pluto article on sidebar for more info. Remember these planets & signs are SYMBOLS which represent a multitude of meanings.) Nothing is written in stone.
The sudden, unexpected changes that free us from our familiar world or the status quo of life, from the known into the unknown, is due to liberating, potent, unpredictable Uranus at 9*25 fearless, competitive, forceful, independent Aries (the warrior, the initiator) clashing with powerful, destructive, regenerative Pluto at 9*25 structured, material, hierarchical, authoritative Capricorn…(the builder, the achiever) patiently reaching each practical goal. Every thought, word & deed is important.

Pisces Full Moon 9.19.2013 September 18, 2013Posted by cosmicsense in astrology, Full Moons, Pisces.

Harvest Full Moon in Pisces Thursday early morning: On September 19th, 2013 at 6:13 AM, CDT, we observe & feel a beautiful, emotion-filled Moon at 26*41 sensitive, psychic Pisces exactly opposite our glowing Sun at 26*41 rational, earthy, discerning Virgo.
Integrating the impressionable, boundless, & unifying energy of mystical, empathic Pisces with that of the focused, efficient, skillful, disciplined & practical Virgo is the challenge here. This Sun can be useful in giving clarity & form to the Moon’s ethereal, visionary nature.
Full Moons are the peak phase of bloom, creation & light in the continuing 8-phase Lunar cycle as we spiral forever onward through the Cosmos. Each one we experience is another opportunity for growth & evolution.
The instinctual Pisces Moon operates in a dreamy, imaginative, compassionate manner. Universal Neptune, at 3* Pisces, is the planet associated with this electromagnetic field. Dance, music, theatre & the arts are filled with flowing Piscean energy, as well as healing, blending, merging & communing with the Greater Whole/Spirit…whatever term you choose. No boundaries are known…and some souls get lost.
Adaptable Mercury at 16* Libra, is the rational planet of intellect & communications, naturally associated with Virgo. Merc can take care of all the details & share the ideas with others, including the info that now appears intuitively, due to other planetary aspects.
Potent Pluto turns Direct Sept. 20th: the apparent backward movement of Pluto ends & it proceeds to move forward at 8*59 ambitious, strategic Capricorn. This can indicate some heavy-duty, powerful scenarios dealing with letting go, forgiving, transforming, regeneration on any level. Power struggles (even with self) & intense confrontations are also a stronger than usual possibility for a couple of intense days.
The Autumnal Equinox begins on Sunday, Sept. 22nd, at 3:44Pm, CDT. This is the cosmic marker when the Sun enters the first degree of the electromagnetic field of Libra. Light & Dark are in balance & the Dark is gaining during this half of the cycle. Libra has to do with relationships, the “we” instead of the Aries “me”, alliances, partnerships & “the other”.
This was farther out on the big lake right before the 4-6 ft. waves approached the tour boat…it was exhilarating, fun & a tad scary…I loved it but photos were then impossible & we rode through them for 45 minutes.
The October 4th New Moon is at 12* Libra at 7:30pm, CDT, and the next Mercury Retrograde is on Oct. 21st at 18* Scorpio. I will be taking a break & will NOT be publishing that particular blog….enjoy Autumn!
E. Tolle says, “The modalities of awakened doing are acceptance, enjoyment & enthusiasm. Each one represents a certain vibrational frequency of consciousness”…” that may change during the course of a day….”. Ok then…..

We encounter an earthy, practical Virgo New Moon early Thursday morning: Our Sun (will, purpose, the conscious self) & Moon (emotional patterns & needs, sensitivity & responsiveness) are both at 13* skillful, conscientious Virgo on September 5th, 2013, at 6:36 AM, CDT.
This New Moon brings in fresh energy available for efficient functioning; use this highly developed mentality in a grounded, sincere & observant manner as you spontaneously & instinctively plunge into new experiences. Pay attention to the details but don’t be too analytical or critical of self or others which can block the flow.
Rational, versatile, communicative Mercury, home planet of Virgo, is also in discerning, precise, organized & technical Virgo at 23*30.
The harmonious trine aspect between the Sun/Moon duo & cathartic Pluto at 9* Capricorn facilitates the expression of the Virgo path of clarity & wholeness in ways that are life-transforming, healing & revitalizing. Profound changes for growth & evolution are possible now in the area of self-refinement. Facing the shadow parts of self requires time apart to analyze experiences & reactions.
We still have the ever increasing intensity building up, mirrored by other planetary aspects. Taking good care of the body & mind makes it easier in the long run. Staying in touch with our deeper emotions & instinctual nature curbs the exaggerated Virgo trait of becoming too orderly & efficient, and exhibiting unhealthy compulsions. Allow your intuitive perceptions to guide you. Onward folks!

Aquarius Full Moon 8.20.13 August 18, 2013Posted by cosmicsense in Aquarius, astrology, Full Moons.

Full Moon on Tuesday evening: we are immersed in an intuitive, freedom-loving Aquarius Full Moon on August 20, 2013, 8:45pm, CDT with Sun (consciousness) at 28* fiery Leo exactly opposite Moon (the unconscious) at 28* airy Aquarius. This regular cyclical exact opposition between the two Lights, which occurs sometimes 13 x a year, is part of that grander design of the Cosmos, offering us major opportunities to continue to evolve, becoming more of who we truly are. I prefer the term “Beings of Light”.
Notice that this is the 2nd Aquarius Full Moon this summer; we had one in early Aquarius (0*06) in July.
Mercury our speedy planet of the rational, logical, communicative mind, at 24* Leo, is very close to our Sun now. Neptune, the universal cosmic solvent, at mystical, sensitive 4* Pisces sits right next to the Full Moon at the end of Aquarius, adding its deep source of the spiritual, psychic, creative inspiration & imagination. This nebulous transmitter always expresses through the feeling nature & symbolizes the desire to reunite with something greater than the self. On the other hand, the God of the Sea also represents illusion, deception, drugs & confusion. Music, dance, art & photography are my favorite Neptunian expressions.
Our Sun represents the the will, vitality & center of Self; it is most powerful & dynamic in self-confident, radiant, courageous Leo. We all have Leo somewhere in our natal birthchart, even if we aren’t actually Leo’s (those born at the time the transiting Sun is traveling through the electromagnetic field of Leo).
Intuitive Uranus, the transmitter of sudden change, disruption & revolutionary vision, is naturally associated with progressive, rebellious, spontaneous Aquarius; liberating Uranus, which is very unpredictable (like an earthquake, tornado, extreme winds or a strike of lightning) operates along unexpected lines & blows apart our status quo reality. You could say we are getting a message from the Cosmos that things are stagnant & need to change…. either personally & definitely collectively.
During the Full Moon erratic Uranus is challenged by a 90* angle from expansive Jupiter at 12* emotional Cancer. Jupiter’s concepts of right/wrong, justice, ethics, morality, faith, positivism, optimism, abundance, growth, increase & exaggeration can remind us not to overdo anything…Nothing In Excess is a worthy phrase to pay attention to.
Jupiter in Cancer is also now opposing Pluto in Capricorn creating polarization. Outer events stimulate this interaction & integration of both forces is important. At the same time Uranus is in that stressful square aspect with Pluto (will be exact in a bit over 2 months….Oct 31/ Nov 1st). Compromising Libra holds the key; cooperative, tactful, diplomatic, impartial, considerate, while seeking harmony, beauty & balance & relating to others.
“Neutralize negativity by staying positive & enthusiastic about the potential for conscious transformation.”

~Everyone has every sign & every planet somewhere in their birthchart~
New Moon: our Sun & Moon are both at 14*35 radiant, heart-centered, creative Leo which is exact at 4:51pm, CDT, on Tuesday, August 6th, 2013.
This is the Moon phase of New Beginnings. What seeds are you planting? Where do you want your energy to go? What are you focusing on? The transmitting Sun is the home planet associated with electromagnetic Leo… the most vibrant, revitalizing, powerful fire-sign. The Sun symbolizes the will; the power urge, the authority, the leader, the life-giving force. Leo has to do with pride & ego; Leo wants to shine, to be in the center, to perform. This part of us has potential to be very generous, loving, romantic, creative, entertaining, dramatic & loves to be appreciated. It represents children & the child within.
We have a complicated mix of stressful & helpful aspects among the planets today; with some of longer duration than others. Because of the few summer days left calling for our attention, I am keeping this very short. Hope you find time to play during these summer days!

Monday, July 22, 2013, 1:17 pm, CDT: Aquarius Full Moon with Sun in the 1st degree of radiant Leo 180* opposite Moon in the 1st degree of brilliant Aquarius! I feel the electricity in the air and also in my heart. The full moon phase is the peak of the lunar cycle…a time of illumination & flowering. Although the emotional, instinctive, receptive Full Moon in original, independent, friendly, mentally-oriented Aquarius may think more about feelings rather than deeply feeling them, a balance is always desirable in integrating the two opposite electromagnetic energy fields within us.
The exalted Sun of consciousness is very powerful in enthusiastic, creative, dramatic, fiery Leo, its home sign. Leo is heart centered & has potential to be a charismatic Lover of life as long as the desire for the love of power becomes the power of love.
During this Full Moon both Sun in Leo & Moon in Aquarius are in a challenging aspect to serious, restrictive Saturn (the Teacher) in early, transforming, mysterious, complex Scorpio. All three signs can be very stubborn; however use the wisdom, patience & self-discipline of Saturn to aid you in times of stress with qualities of endurance, caution, responsibility & focus. Beware of letting fears & worry escalate to the point of unhealthiness. This is another primetime healing opportunity….onward to wholeness!
Concentrated Saturn in cathartic Scorpio is harmoniously aspecting intangibile Neptune in unifying Pisces & also the conjunction of expansive Jupiter with courageous Mars in nurturing Cancer; forming a flowing Grand Trine in all the sensitive, psychic, imaginative & emotional water signs. The Grand Trine symbolizes a cosmic design which offers help to alleviate the increasing intensity we all experience.
Speaking of intensity, Uranus at 9*25 Aries will be exactly square Pluto at 9*25 Capricorn (see sidebar) for the for the 4th time Oct. 31st/Nov. 1st.
I still had to run down to Lake Superior to absorb the WAVES!!! Photos do not do them justice but I like to share anyway…imagine the sounds of gigantic waves crashing onto the rocks high into the air! perfect.

~As Above So Below~
Early Monday morning, July 8, 2013, 2:15 am, CDT: We may wonder where we belong on planet Earth during this Cancer New Moon. Where are we comfortable? Are we feeling secure, safe, nurtured…who is our family? What do we call home? Our conscious Sun & unconscious Moon are both exactly 16*18 sensitive water-sign Cancer emphasizing vulnerable emotions; our reactions/responses to others & the environment (visible or invisible) is our prime focus. Psychic, receptive Cancer planets operate instinctively ”from the gut”…the moodiness of the Moon in its own sign can be problematic sometimes because it is very strong…take a moment before you speak, write, send thoughts & consider what is for the highest good of all. (message to self…I have 2 transmitters in Cancer)
++New Moons symbolize New Beginnings++
Communicator Mercury (data operator) at 18* Cancer is right next to Sun & New Moon. How we think & reason, how we express ourselves to others will definitely be connected to our feelings & lunar imagination. This conjunction of three orbs are opposite transforming Pluto at 10* Capricorn; light is shed on the inner, hidden depths of our unconscious & old material may be surfacing to be released & healed.
There are many other astrological factors occurring at this time, including the next approaching, ever-potent progressive, rebellious Uranus in action-oriented, aggressive Aries square (challenging aspect) complex, intense Pluto in organized, cautious Capricorn; They will be exactly 90 degrees* to each other again on Oct.31/Nov.1st, 2013. Check out details on sidebar…Uranus square Pluto.
