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!

“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.

~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!

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!!!

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.

Sunday afternoon, March 30th, 2014, 1:44pm, CDT: we have a vital New Moon with Sun & Moon together at 9*59 inspiring, energetic, innovative Aries. Both New Moon and forceful Aries represent new beginnings.
Associated with fiery, independent, enthusiastic transmitter Mars, Aries can express as confidence, courage, self-starting, directness & strength. Folks with this Warrior sign emphasized (Sun…Moon…Ascendent…1st house planets, etc.) may be fearless, passionate, assertive, eager, competitive…brave leaders unafraid to initiate action. It is also natural for Aries to look out for #1. However Mars impatience, anger, selfishness, recklessness, carelessness can also escalate into violence & war. We have challenging aspects with Uranus, Pluto & Jupiter at this time, but also beneficial connections among other planets; there will be stress & distress. Send out love, calm, peaceful, healing energy from the heart wherever you are…as often as you can. Stop the judgements & criticisms before they leave your mouth. (I tell myself)
High-frequency Uranus 12*20 Aries sits next to the 2 luminaries during the New Moon; undoubtedly sudden change, revolutionary actions, unexpected events & extremes will surface perhaps more than usual. Radical, electrifying, higher vibration Uranus symbolizes the evolutionary impulse for awakening, illuminating & liberating us from stagnant internal ego structures & stagnant external reality structures; it transmits sudden freedom from the known world into the unknown & release from our growth inhibiting status-quo conditioning. Our intuition (instant knowing) is increasing if we chose to pay attention to it. “Beam me up Scottie!”
April 14th, Pluto turns Retrograde 13*34 Capricorn before the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse (which takes place shortly after midnight on the 15th of April..more on Full Moon in the next blog). Willful, passionate, compulsive, intense & cathartic Pluto is the natural transmitter connected to the electromagnetic field of deeply emotional, powerful, transforming, magnetic Scorpio. Pluto reflects its mysterious energy for slow, gradual, irreversible change wherever it is. A few days around the 14th will potentially be very intense.Then on April 21st, 2014, we will be experiencing the next Uranus/Pluto exact square…..
This planetary aspect helps to describe the world we’re currently living in…from every direction & on every level sentient life on Earth is changing at an exponential rate. Unpredictable URANUS 13*34 Aries is square transforming PLUTO 13*34 Capricorn on Monday, April 21st, 2014, 1:38pm, CDT: These two outer transpersonal planets have been powerfully interacting with each other since June 2012, mirroring “As Above So Below” in perfect dramatic fashion. In April we experience the 5th of 7 exact squares between high-voltage Uranus & complex, intense Pluto. (the sixth is Dec.16th, 2014, the seventh & last one is March 17th, 2015)
And just what is a square?!…you might ask. It is a mathematical aspect (a tetrahedron) between two planets that signifies stress & dynamic tension, crisis, confrontations & their results; focus of energy is needed. These transmitters represent higher octave energies symbolizing the urge toward development related to soul consciousness rather than personal consciousness.
Pluto destroys anything that has grown toxic…nothing personal, it just does! Physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually it works through breaking down, destruction & rebuilding…regeneration…healing…assimilating & transforming…it symbolizes concentrated POWER. Power issues, control, manipulation, power struggles? Self-empowerment is the wisest channel for Plutonian energy.
What is special about planet Earth? It is the only WATER planet in our solar system. Hmmmm…

~As Above So Below~
Saturday, March 1st, 2014, 1:59am, CST: our Sun (consciousness) & our Moon (instincts) are both at 10*39 ethereal, mystical Pisces; and like a healing, spiritual dream…the luminaries are right in-between visionary, idealistic Neptune at 5* Pisces & the wounded healer Chiron at 13* Pisces. This group embodies innumerable qualities of the creative imagination, artistry, unconditional love, healing, cosmic consciousness, compassion, visualization, channelship & deep levels of inspiration.
Neptune, God of the Sea, is the home planet of watery Pisces; on the esoteric level it stimulates inner vision & represents the desire to reunite with Spirit. “The ocean is a suitable symbol for Neptune because of it’s depths, it’s constant movement, it’s mystery, it’s value as a symbol for the beginning & end of life, the place of emergence & disappearance.” (not sure of the source of this quote)
Allow yourself to be free of escapism, illusion or deceptions, especially self-deception, during this intangible Pisces New Moon time; boundaries are dissolved which emphasizes the qualities of connecting, merging, uniting, &/or confusion, disorientation, lack of discrimination…Stay grounded & be open to spiritual (whatever that may mean for you) guidance where your ego takes a back seat.
Chiron at 13* Pisces, an agent of healing, works through awareness; when IT changes that is an important transition associated with our human potential. Embracing the shadow is as important as seeking the light. Mind & body are connected by awareness.
May your soul plan evolve with grace and beauty, dignity and love.
For the more astrologically inclined;
•Mercury at 18* Aquarius, goes Direct on Friday, Feb. 28th at 8am, CST.
•Mars at 28* Libra turns Retrograde on Saturday, March 1st at 10:24am, CST
•Saturn at 23*Scorpio turns Retrograde on Sunday, March 2nd at 10:19am, CST
•Jupiter at 10* Cancer goes Direct on Thursday, March 6th at 4:42am, CST

A New Moon time…birth of something new, fresh, innovative…an idea, a behavior, an attitude, a creation. The seeds are planted although we don’t see the results yet…the dark & unseen possibilities. The Moon (the unconscious) is conjunct our Sun (consciousness) at 10*55 intuitive, friendly, humanitarian, innovative, universal & revolutionary Aquarius on Thursday, January 30th, 2014, 3:38 pm, CST.
The electric, genius, radical disruptor Uranus, now at 9* Aries, is associated with communicative air-sign Aquarius. This is the transmitter that can shock us, shake us up & wake us up! It illuminates like a bolt of lightning. Meet the challenge & expect the unexpected while being calm, loving, giving & sharing.
Both Sun & Moon together in the New Moon phase emphasize the originality, the future-oriented, progressive, tolerant & inventive Aquarian qualities. Each of us has this sign somewhere in our natal birthchart; depending upon the birth data, some have stronger Aquarian energy than others. There may be times that the aloofness, detachment, inconsistency, unpredictability & opinionative nature of this independent freedom-loving rebel can be hard to take. Self-awareness, moderation & balance are key.
Social, sensual Venus retrograde at 13*34 earthy Capricorn is currently conjunct (sitting right next to) complex, cathartic Pluto at 12*17 Capricorn. This describes extreme intensity & transformation, possibly unbalanced passion, in areas of partnerships, relationships, harmonizing & peacemaking for people, countries, ideologies, etc. Venus turns Direct (moving forward) on Jan. 31st…therefore January 31st & Feb 1st, 2014, are as close as Venus & Pluto get to each other until they are conjunct again in Feb. 2019.
I like the line in the AVICII song “Wake Me Up” that says “life is a game made for everyone and LOVE is the prize”.
Expansive, philosophical, optimistic Jupiter retrograde at 12*21 emotional, protective Cancer AND sudden-change artist Uranus at 9*24 assertive, daring, spontaneous Aries do a big-time challenge to our dynamic duo Venus/Pluto during this New Moon.
You may have read information on this blog about Uranus squaring Pluto, occurring seven times from 2012-2015; marking a long-term scenario, on a world-wide transforming scale of breaking us free from the status-quo collective, affecting structured world hierarchies (the money system, government, the church, business, corporations, the authorities). Pluto does not destroy anything that has not grown toxic. Pluto is about Power & the use or misuse of it. Yes, we signed up for this…See sidebar for more on Uranus/Pluto.
January 31st is the Chinese New Year…year of the Horse.
Mercury turns Retrograde on Feb. 6th, 2014

~Astrology only correlates to reality, it does not cause it~
Wednesday, January 1st, 2014, at 5:14am, CST: what a dynamic, potentially disruptive & perhaps over-whelming New Moon!! Something new is to be revealed & it could be YOU.
Due to transforming Pluto’s prominent placement on the first day of January, we have an awakening opportunity now to release more of the toxic dredges from our deep, hidden, unseen, invisible core of self…to bring on death of the old, clearing out, cathartic purging, regeneration & renewal. You are the only one who has the ability to carry out this rebirth process. Behavior, feelings or thoughts that are negative, destructive, manipulative, controlling or vindictive will delay new birth… I will take one step at a time…self-empowerment!
- Sun (conscious self) & Moon (instinctual self) are both now at 10*57 ambitious, disciplined, conscientious & patient Capricorn. This New Moon is part of a powerful stellium of planets in efficient, reliable, organized, responsible Capricorn beginning with metamorphic Pluto at 11* Capricorn, sitting right in-between the luminary duo & communicator Mercury at 12*51 Capricorn with Venus near the end of this earthy, material sign. Everyone will be experiencing this strong electromagnetic energy in some area of their life which is shown on the birth chart.
- The Sun, Moon, Pluto & Mercury conjunction (close to the same degree) form one piece of the challenging mathematical aspects to courageous Mars, to expansive Jupiter & to electrical, unpredictable Uranus during this intense New Moon. These alignments are called a Cardinal Grand Cross which indicates major stress, tension & growth potential through integration of balancing opposing urges & productivity through focusing of energy. For example, instead of being impatient, dissatisfied, overcommitted & forceful one could choose to be selectively active, direct & purposeful.
The goddess Venus, retrograde at 26*43 Capricorn, is the energy transmitter of relationships, love, values, peace, harmony & balance of self & with others. Venus alone is NOT making any major aspect to other planets. However, the very passionate drive & assertive initiative of Mars currently at 11*52 social, artistic, other-oriented Libra (natural home base of Venus), definitely brings all manner of relating & creating balance to the center stage of life.
Serious, concentrating, restrictive Saturn, the transmitter associated with Capricorn, as “the Teacher” helps us to reach goals & patiently deal with limitations. Saturn is in resourceful Scorpio (from 2012-2015) currently at 20* & is still in a flowing aspect with retrograde Jupiter at 16* Cancer… emphasizing a space in time to let go of fears & continue our amazing dedicated work in transforming ourselves.
I like to remember the Four Agreements by Toltec shaman don M. Ruiz…

~As Above So Below~
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…”
