On June 17, 2019 in the early morning we will enter a full moon phase in the zodiac sign of Sagittarius. This moon was called the “Thunder Moon” by some native Americans. Like any full moon, the moon will be at its brightest point in its transit.  It is a symbol of harvest and culmination of our efforts. With the sun in the late part of its time in Gemini, Jupiter retrograding squaring Neptune in Pisces, and Mars in Cancer opposing Saturn, this will be a moon of big plans, focus on self, expansion, vulnerability, heavy pondering, and conversation.

Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign ruled by Jupiter that is about adventure and looking past what is just beyond into the unknown. The archetype of this sign is the archer.  He can change course to follow his prey, but has the dedication to track it for execution. He can be blunt and direct.    Sagittarius can see the bigger picture, but can also have many highs and many lows.  He can be quick tempered, yet methodical and wise. He can be spontaneous, but reliable.

Mutable signs are changeable and adaptable. Fire signs are passionate and head full force towards what thrills them in the moment. Jupiter is the planet of luck, growth, and expansion. He brings a deeper understanding to help ground the fiery limitless thrill seeker of Sagittarius. With Jupiter retrograding, there will be a full circle energy surrounding certain areas of life. There be a feeling of needed change and how to make that possible. Change may come without our doing, but it brings a sense of coming full circle.

Neptune will be in its home sign of Pisces during this moon squaring Jupiter retrograding  in Sagittarius. Pisces is a very dreamy sign and can be prone to illusion and as a water sign, has deep emotions. Neptune symbolizes dreams, illusion, and spiritual enlightenment.  However, Neptune can represent deceit, trickery, and naivety, which are also characteristics of un-evolved Pisces.  This square can make us dream big and shoot for what seems impossible. This square can also make us unrealistic and prone to fantasy. You may feel more drawn to spiritual practice around this time. This energy also can act as a removal energy. Something needs to go to actually attain these dreams.

Mars will be in Cancer opposing Saturn during this full moon. Mars is a planet about action and aggression. It adds restlessness. Mars wants to drive forward. Cancer is a water sign that is highly sensitive, highly connected to family and very loyal.  Mars in Cancer likely can create disruption in the family dynamic or leaving us feeling extremely vulnerable and sensitive in connection to familial relationships. Saturn represents the father in astrology. Saturn also represents boundaries and established order. Saturn gives us structure. This opposition and these aspects, there may be a dispute arising out of day to day life or even among governing bodies. There may be a challenge of accepted authority.  There may be a major shift in a relationship with a family member or where you lack boundaries and need more order.  It may be time to quick a habit that is impacting important parts of your life. There may be an area you need more discipline.

Between the moon’s time in Sagittarius and it’s transit into Capricorn, it will be considered “Void of Course.” Being void of course there will be a big shift between seeing this big picture and dreaming big and pushing you into acting on those realizations. There will be a momentum building during this moon.

This Thunder moon is  the precipice of  major change. It is the rumble before the lightning strike. Something likely come full circle and a deeper realization may be obtained when it comes to self and family relationships. Some new individual truths will be realized.

The sun is in the later part of Gemini, but is mostly not attached to any one sign this moon. It is going to be Peregrine, put simply, it is not heavily aspected.  The sun represents self, so a self centered focus may be prevalent around this moon. This can bring a heavy sense of independence and feeling ungrounded. You may feel more focused on self improvement or what needs changing in your day to day habits. How do you fit into the grander scheme of things? You may be just a little selfish too and hungry for the spotlight.

The affect of Gemini will still play heavy with this moon. Gemini is ruled by mercury which is the planet of communication. You may feel “stuck in your head,” this moon having a back and forth conversation with yourself with the un-hinged sun. People may speak bigger and loftier than they really mean with the affect of Neptune. Words and thoughts can be a major trigger for change during this moon. There may be a lot of harsh and emotional communication. This is a good time to read between the lines of what others are communicating. Words are hard to take back once spoken.

There is a vision and idea we want to see realized by year’s end. This moon will give us the ideas to reach that goal, what needs to change, but it may seem difficult to be patient and put in the work until the moon moves into Capricorn. Write down your ideas. Focus on which goals are easily in your reach and go from there. Be realistic with yourself and others. This is also a time of finding out how we really feel and coming to terms with those emotions.

On May 18, 2019 we will enter a Full Moon phase in the zodiac sign of Scorpio.  This moon is also known as the Buddha Moon and was called the Flower Moon by Native Americans. This moon will also be considered a “blue moon,” although only in name. The popular concept of a Blue Moon is when there are two full moons in one month.  The traditional Blue Moon is the third of four moons in one season, which is occurring  this month.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and is a sign about death and birth- the phoenix rising from the ashes. Scorpio is a water sign that feels deeply and can be quiet intense.  Scorpio is also a fixed sign meaning they can be very stuck in their ways. Scorpio’s emotions fester and that water element has a tendency to come to a boil-needing to let out steam.  A moon in this sign is usually about bringing what is hidden to the surface and highly emotional. What is at the point of boiling over? What latent emotion needs to come to the surface? What are you keeping inside that needs to be expressed?Full moons are about endings and culminations of our labor.  This moon will be no different.

The namesake of the Buddha Moon is a nod to the death/rebirth of the Buddha when he gained enlightenment- leaving his role as a prince to seek something more.  An old self dying and re-birthing the man we know as the Buddha. The Flower Moon is representative of Flowers blooming around this time.  Flowers boom in place of what has passed on.

The sun will be conjunct Mercury  and oppose the moon in Scorpio during this phase. Mercury rules communication and thought. This aspect will create a need to communicate and express ourselves.  It will create a conversation between logic and emotion bubbling up.  Combined with the heavy emotional energy of Scorpio, there may be an urge to communicate in an impulsive emotional way.  However,  the sun is still in Taurus, who is not a sign known for being impulsive (even though she can be a bit harsh in her delivery of truth).  The aspect to Taurus will provide a softening energy to the Mercury aspect, bringing in a sense of observation and needing to gain perspective before speaking/acting. It will help ground and create stability with the emotion that may come up.

Coinciding this moon we currently have three planets in retrograde.   Pluto and Saturn are currently retrograding in Capricorn and Jupiter is retrograde in Sagittarius. These energies have already caused a lot of shakeup in the astrology world, but will also affect the energy of this moon phase.

Pluto rules Scorpio and is a planet about the unseen, shadow, and subconscious. Pluto is about bringing the truth to the light- she is a keen investigator.  She has been retrograde since April 24th.  You may have already experienced an unearthing of what was buried-even what you didn’t even know was buried. With this retrograde in Capricorn, an earthy, practical, and hardworking sign, Pluto might expose the areas where you need more joy. What latent desires are not being fulfilled. Maybe you are focusing too much on work and being practical and not enough on play.

Saturn is also retrograding in Capricorn, which is her ruling sign.  Saturn is the planet of karma.  Saturn is also about the day to day obligations and responsibilities of life. When she is in retrograde, what you may have been neglecting in your life will come to forefront.  The obligations you have been avoiding will start to nudge you to address them. You may experience an upheaval in your day-to-day routine and work-life.  If you haven’t been treating others well and being dishonest, that energy will likely come to roost during a Saturn retrograde. Saturn will also highlight areas we are being oppressed or being oppressive. It can also expose problems in family dynamics and structure.

Jupiter is retrograding in his home sign-Sagittarius. Jupiter is the planet of luck, success, and wisdom.  When she is retrograde there may be an urge to travel, learn something new, or seek new experiences.  Sagittarius is all about fresh, new, and adventure.  There may be an urge to make sudden changes due to a desire for something bigger and better.  It may be best to take a step back and evaluate before making any new big moves.  Once Jupiter goes direct you may not be so happy with any major life altering changes you made during the season.

Probably the biggest energy influence on this moon of the planets in retrograde will be Pluto in Retrograde, since Pluto rules Scorpio.  Pluto is only one degree from Mercur. This energy will push us to go deeper on what needs to be seen and communicated. Hard conversations may come about around this moon.

There are a lot of intense energies around this moon.  Trust that what may not be staying in your life, was not meant to be there.  Be open to having the hard conversations-some long needed heart to hearts may be ignited. Be mindful of your emotional state and how that needs to be expressed and what needs to be addressed.

In the wee hours of February 19th we will enter a Full Moon Phase in the zodiac of Virgo.  This moon is considered a super moon, because of the earth’s proximity to the earth.  The moon will appear large and bright in the sky (assuming its not too cloudy to view).

This moon will not only illuminate the night sky, but also bring into focus areas of our lives that need de-cluttering and reorganization-areas where the heart and mind are scattered. Where our emotions need balance.

With this moon being in the zodiac sign of Virgo, there will be an earth based pragmatism to this moon.  Virgos are one of the hardest working signs of the zodiac sign. Virgo is also a thinker and highly critical of themselves and others. You may find yourself doing an inventory of everything in your life- including your thoughts and emotions.

This moon will carry with it a burst of energy and motivation to re-work and organize goals and plans that need fine tuning. You will get the clarity on what you really want and what steps to take in getting here.

Earth energy-money, stability, tangible items will be in review during this moon.  Spending problems, needed financial moves and utilizing available resources will be highlighted.  The future expansion of resources will  be part of this as well. What practical steps are needed to move forward?

The energy around this moon will also bear a sense of compassion and loving feelings. It’s time to let go of expectations and attachment to certain outcomes and how we want life to be. Things will feel as if they have come full circle and greater understanding obtained.

There will be a quiet recognition of problems and what needs to be done to resolve those problems without any thought or conscious deliberation on what direct action is needed, thanks to Mars-ruler of action, aggression, and war. You will just get it done without much forethought. You might also feel rushed to move or speak your mind in an aggressive way.

Neptune will have an aspect to this moon creating a dreamy and whimsical feeling. Its a time to indulge in dreaming big, but also seeing a clear way to achieve your dreams- utilizing Virgo energy.  Neptune can create a fog around communication and situations.  Things may seem differently than they appear. Be careful if you’re gullable. It will be prudent to listen to your intuition and not move out of a place of fear and anxiety, which can be heightened by Mars. There might be an over-confidence, over-extending, and over-promising with a slight detachment from reality. The sun moving into Pisces will also add to this dreamlike vibe.

There will be an aspect to Mercury, since it is about to go retrograde in early March. The shadow period of Metro retrograde is here- hold ups, important communication and possible miscommunication will start around this time and culminate by the end of this Mercury Retrograde. Also, Mars can add to ruffled feathers. Pay attention to what bubbles up now as it will come full circle by the end of the retrograde period. You’ll see why certain things are at a stalemate.

With an aspect to Pluto, there is a level of death and rebirth to this moon. A feeling of shedding on old skin or completing a spiritual and practical lesson will add to the feeling of coming full circle. You may also feel a deeper sense of connectedness and flow with your world- also playing on Pisces energy.

This will be a powerful moon and emotions will run deep-setting events into motion that could change your life’s direction. This is a very active time in astrology with intense energy. Pay attention to common themes and synchronicity to know what to take in and leave behind during this phase.

On January 21st we will enter a Full Moon phase in the zodiac sign of Leo.  This month’s Full Moon is especially significant as it coincides a full lunar eclipse.  Also, due to the proximity of the earth to the moon during this moon phase, the moon will appear red in color-a blood moon.  Other aspects to this moon, including Uranus, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter, will give this moon a powerful punch.

Full Moons are about culminations and reaping the fruits of our labor. With the eclipse happening alongside this moon phase, there will be a focus on intimate relationships and partnerships.  You may feel more emotional and sentimental than normal. It may seem like there is no reason to be sad, yet you feel a touch of the blues. Also, eclipses are known for removing people, places, and things out of our lives. Typically this change is sudden and without warning.  Sometimes connections that are waning fully fall away during an eclipse.  Conflict can arise that will lead to a dissolution of a connection as well.

Leo represents the individual.  Leo is a leader and charismatic. He is represented by the lion in the zodiac and has a persistent spirit. Leo enjoys the limelight and tends to stand out. Leo can be a bit jealous and possessive and have a defined sense of self. Leos are the most egoic of the zodiac.

The sun will have just entered the opposite sign of Leo, Aquarius, when the Full Moon phase begins. Aquarius is about the collective, about society.  Aquarius is more focused on groups and social connections. Aquarius also tends to be a bit rebellious and is about testing the established norm.

There will be a focus on your role as an individual and how your individual role adds to the collective and your greater purpose this moon. Uranus’ aspect will play on this polarity that Leo and Aquarius will create.  Uranus will beg the question-Who are you? It’s time to take off your mask. There will be a focus on self authenticity and living within your truth, and what is in alignment with your values. If you have been living in disalignment with who you are, those things will likely fall away or be highlighted.  People that are no longer in alignment with you, could likely fall away.

Now with Mercury being in the mix, communication will be a focus. There will be a focus on interrelatedness and how you communicate with those around you.  Are you deepening your bonds or pushing people away with your relationship style?

You may also be focused on home and what home means to you.  This can be who, what, where feels like home. You may want to re-decorate or pick up and move. With Venus hanging around there will be focus on aesthetic as well when it comes to the home.

During this period, Jupiter and Venus will be meeting in the sky.  This is an incredibly fertile time. If you are trying to conceive, this could be the lucky month.  If you are not wanting to conceive, you may want to be extra careful. This can also be a keen time for romance. This may be a good time to get out there and mingle if you’re single. If partnered, you may feel a deepening bond.

The blood moon will be most visible in North America and parts of Western Europe and Africa. The energy around the moon will start Friday the 18th and probably peek on Tuesday the 22nd. People can act strangely during eclipses. There can be an intensity among people and people may be extra sensitive. Be mindful of your interactions and not to take things too seriously.
