~As Above So Below~
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!

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!

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.

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.

~ Everyone has all the zodiac signs & all the planets somewhere in their birthchart~
Sunday afternoon, March 16, 2014, 12:08 pm, CDT: our Sun at 26*02 mystical, magical Pisces is mathematically opposite our Moon at 26*02 grounded, disciplined Virgo culminating as the Full Moon. The evening before, of & after will be spectacular if it is cloud free. This peak of light and total illumination of the vision is the promise of this phase; the symbolic seed flowers at this time.
Sensitive, receptive Pisces Sun, the most fluid of the twelve signs, is flowing, drifting, dreaming….it is deeply emotional, imaginative, visionary, empathic, ethereal, unifying & merging…there are no boundaries here. (which can be a problem sometimes) The gentle spiritual compassion of Pisces & surrender to that which is greater than us offers healing. Neptune, at 6* Pisces, the mythological God of the seas, is the home planet. This transpersonal sphere reveals itself as the cosmic solvent… dissolving form, symbolizing unity, oneness & wholeness. Idealistic Neptune can express as confusion, disorder or disorientation as it represents the urge to lose oneself in another state of consciousness. Too much of a good thing can be dangerous however; escapism, addictions, delusion, deception & chaos fall under this catagory as well. Clarity, balance & reality is needed & Virgo energy helps to supply this.
Efficient, practical & discriminating Virgo is ruled by speedy transmitter Mercury, which is currently at 28*38 Aquarius. The Virgo part of us has a sharp eye for detail, can be very meticulous, technological & analytical. As a mutable Earth sign it is connected to planet Earth, nature, & healing; the intellectual, observant, skillful, conscientious Virgo likes to help, be useful & to be of service.
SPRING: Our Sun moves into the electromagnetic field of Aries on Thursday, March 20th at 11:57am, CDT!!

Friday, February 14, 2014 at 5:53 pm, CST: Yes, on Valentine’s day we have a romantic, creative, dramatic Leo (the lover) Full Moon; our Sun at 26* independent, unconventional, tolerant Aquarius is exactly opposite our Moon at 26* playful, expressive, self-assured Leo. Leo is the natural home of the Sun, the center of our solar system. The Full Moon phase of illumination represents the alchemical sacred marriage between Moon (the feminine) & Sun (the masculine) as they appear equal in size now…symbolizing fulfillment through relationship…& it starts with the self.
Mentally oriented, versatile, communicator Mercury at 28* humanitarian Aquarius is sitting right next to the dynamic, powerful Sun, which allows a flow of a very intuitive, unique, quick, brilliant quality to our thought processes…information we take into our specialized computer brain, how we define it & how we then send it out into the world. I am allowing the bouncer at the doorway of my mental realms to be very discriminating…of course it takes constant vigilance. What am I re-enforcing with my thoughts & words? It starts with the self. How long is it going to take us to acknowledge that we are star Beings of love & light? scientific Truth: star dust are the building blocks of life & every atom of our body was produced inside the fiery core of stars.• from 2010 “How the Universe Works” series.
We are challenged by a serious, cautious, concentrated Saturn at 23* resourceful, intense & determined Scorpio making a stressful square aspect to this Sun & Full Moon. The restriction & blockage that we may experience as feelings of fear, insecurity, frustration & difficulty are teaching us to focus & commit to self-discipline, patience, responsibility, purposefulness and remember, a sense of humor helps!
The World Winter Olympics play out all the energies of this Aquarian time in space…universal, friendly, social, loving, sharing, people-oriented, communicating, supporting, respecting, playing, educating…heart-felt emotions all over the board! I love it!
Here are some brief astro facts for astrologically inclined…no time to go into depth.
•Mercury turns Direct at 18* Aquarius on Feb. 28th
•Mars turns Retrograde at 27*31 Libra on March 1st (more info later)
•Saturn turns Retrograde at 23* Scorpio on March 2nd (more info later)

Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at 10:52pm, CST: our Sun at 25*58 responsible, focused, committed & organized Capricorn is 180 degrees from our lunar sphere which is at 25*58 industrious, thrifty, maternal, sensitive Cancer during this Full Moon. The exact opposition between our radiant transmitter Sun (consciousness) & our Moon, which symbolizes everything about us that is instinctual & unconscious, reveals a time of illumination & fulfillment if the positive potential of the last New Moon (Capricorn Moon of January 1st, 2014) was allowed to develop. I remember it was a very tense New Moon time & I know I did learn more about my emotional nature…always more to learn. (I’m rereading the “Four Agreements” by Ruiz)
The Moon is the natural home transmitter of water-sign Cancer so it is very powerful when in this electromagnetic field, accentuating our deepest feelings, emotional patterns/needs, our sensitivities & responsiveness. The constant flow of the subconscious Moon contains the storehouse of our home base & the nurturing we perceived/received, security issues, family (of origin or those you chose to be close to), the past, memory (including other lives?), imagination, receptiveness & psychic gut instincts; these are all associated with this Full Moon in cautious, protective, very emotional Cancer.
The Earthy, practical, cautious, conscientious, self-disciplined & efficient Capricorn Sun at 25*58 can patiently manage the multiple emotions continually surfacing now. Guard against behavior that is too controlling, rigid or fearful. We have a helpful aspect from moderating, focused Saturn (naturally associated with Capricorn) at 21*34 intense Scorpio. The calm, grounded guidance of this Full Moon’s freight train of emotions is possible… facilitating wiser choices & healthier release.
The faster moving, more personal planets, sensuous Venus (attraction, love, sociability, peacemaking, art, balance, harmony) & active Mars (desire, sexuality, courage, assertion, enthusiasm, independence) are experiencing stress/tension & an opportunity to do some rewarding “work” in relationships with a challenging square aspect between retrograde Venus at 18* Capricorn & Mars at 18* Libra. Use this strong energy to rework some relationship issue or to change some non-productive habitual way of responding to another/others, for example.
The fifth (out of 7) exact difficult square aspects between Uranus & Pluto is coming up on April 21st, 2014; with the radical disrupter, innovator Uranus at 13*34 fiery, pioneering Aries and intense, destructive, regenerative Pluto at 13*34 tangible, structured Capricorn. Our world is changing big-time! Please see Uranus Square Pluto on sidebar if you want more information.

~Everyone has all the signs & all the planets somewhere in their birthchart~
Tuesday, early morning 3:28 am, CST, December 17, 2013… the LAST month of 2013! We’ll experience a doozy of a Gemini Full Moon. The Sun (conscious energy) at 25*36 adventurous, forward-moving, visionary, optimistic Sagittarius is exactly opposite Moon (instinctual energy) at 25*36 rational, inquisitive, here-and-now, mentally oriented Gemini, just a week before the holidays of Christmas & Kwanzaa.
The combination of expressive, communicative, adaptable, versatile, curious, diverse Gemini (more mental than emotional) Moon opposing expansive, idealistic, hopeful, benevolent, outspoken, truth-seeking, tolerant & fiery Sagittarius Sun requires both to work together integrating a purposeful focusing of skills & talents in order to create what we want/need in our lives & on our planet.
The polarity between two opposing signs during the Full Moon always brings a bit of excitement, but this one is loaded with tension. Courageous, action-oriented, impulsive, passionate MARS is currently at 5* social Libra, the sign of relationship & the urge to create & maintain harmony/balance, which needs constant adjustment as life moves along. Mars is self-involved & Libra is partnership-oriented.
Aggressive Mars makes two stressful aspects to both powerful, unpredictable, liberating, disruptive Uranus & concentrated, intense, purging Pluto (•who are still in a strong, challenging alignment each other) during this Full Moon. Could be troublesome. I am going to practice patience, especially before I speak, & listen more. If it’s not -30 below I may go out snowshoeing (with another-Libra) to burn off some of that Mars grrr..age.
The Warrior, MARS, also forms an uncomfortable aspect to visionary, compassionate & spiritual or delusional, deceptive, escapist Neptune…so all three outer planets are involved with this Full Moon! Uranus, Neptune & Pluto definitely affect the masses; these 3 universal transmitters pertain to the collective unconscious realms. They symbolize urges toward development which are related to soul consciousness, rather than personal consciousness. However Mars (what I desire) operates on a very personal level….so be forewarned.
On the Full Moon day…Electrical, rebellious Uranus, the shock-jock, turns Direct at 8* active, fearless, spontaneous Aries on Dec. 17th, 2013, at 11:39am. We can expect the unexpected. Our nervous systems may be highly frazzled for a few days. Do what you can to de-stress & help create a loving, calm atmosphere.
Winter Solstice: Saturday, December 21, 2013, 11:11am (hmm..) CST: The first day of Winter occurs when our solar sphere moves into the very 1st degree of Capricorn (there are 30 degrees in each of the 12 electromagnetic fields). More light! Hooray! Later in the day the harmonizing planet of love, beauty & values…Venus, turns Retrograde (backward) at 29* Capricorn through Jan. 31, 2014. It will present an opportunity to go over past relationship issues, who & what we value…another chance to work things out.
These planetary dynamics will skate right into the holiday season & we are all in it together…Love & Peace! Happy Solstice!

“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.

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.
