Full Moon in Scorpio; April 29nd, 2018 ☾♏

“As the lotus rises on its stalk unsoiled by the mud and water, so the wise one speaks of peace and is unstained by the opinions of the world.” – Buddha

The most potent Full Moon of the year peaks at 8:59 PM EST on Sunday as the Sun in sensual Taurus opposes the Moon in mysterious Scorpio. Taurus and Scorpio are opposite signs, but they also have similarities, both being Yin, fixed and possessive.

Earth sign Taurus is about peace, stability and pleasing the senses – sight, sound, smell, taste, touch. Water sign Scorpio is about exploring the depths of existence; the things that go beyond the physical experience – spirituality, emotions, death, rebirth. It’s the Natural vs. the Supernatural.

Under these Truth or Dare moonbeams, extreme behavior, amplified desires and emotional declarations are possible. But, the Moon in the dark realm of Scorpio also opens the portal to healing at the deepest level.

Sun in Aries + Spring Equinox; March 20, 2018 🍃♈

Welcome back, Persephone!

The Sun blazes into fiery Aries on March 20th, marking the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of a brand new Astrological year!

Today, Light and Dark exist in sacred balance. After this point, the days will get longer and the nights will get shorter until the Summer Solstice on June 21st, when the pattern will reverse.

“And so the spring buds burst, and so I gaze,
And so the blossoms fall, and so my days …”
― Onitsura

As we shift out of the soft, ethereal energy of Pisces, and into the fearless, action realm of Aries, we’re likely to be seeking out things that are new, fun and different.

We now have an excess of Fire energy. At this time, we can become more impulsive, direct and uncomplicated in our needs, but the tendency to be a bit of an asshole short-sighted and selfish is highly possible.

Venus & Mercury enter Aries; March 6th, 2018 ❤♀☿♈

“I will never forget your fire. I can’t wait to see what you do.”
Kiera Cass, Happily Ever After

Today, Venus and Mercury blaze into the realm of daredevil Aries and out of the dreamy purple haze of Pisces. Driven by the straight-shooting, fiery vibes of Mars, passion comes through loud and clear as the planet of logic and the planet of love transits bold and exciting Aries.

Desires are expressed spontaneously, enthusiastically, and directly. For lovebirds, old and new, this is great news as Agent Provocateur Aries can light our divine spark through sweet crushes and hot pursuits.

“Clever banter, inspired bursts of brilliance, shameless come-ons—yep, our exchanges will be charged with the Ram’s spirited dynamism. Friendships and flirtations can heat up quickly over the next few weeks.” -Astrotwins

Aries has a reputation as the reckless restless romantic, so flames tend to fizzle out as fast as they sizzle — especially if there isn’t a level of intensity and mystery involved.

When faced with opposition, these fired up planets can instigate hasty actions and provocative remarks.

Full Moon in Virgo; March 1, 2018 ❂♍

Tonight, at 7:51 PM ET, the luminaries peak in Earth Sign, Virgo. This Virgo Full Moon takes in the mystical light of the Pisces Sun, bringing to culmination that which began during the previous Pisces New Moon.

“March 2018 begins with plenty of higher illumination. Put away the petty and superficial playthings of the material realm while exploring the profundity present in philosophical studies about the deeper meaning of life on this fragile planet. Send out your healing thoughts and prayers to humanity and kingdoms of nature around the moment of the Full Moon. Lift people up with cheer rather than pulling them down with criticism.”  -Mark Lerner

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius + Lunar New Year ♒

 

A New Moon and partial Solar Eclipse occurs today at 4:06 PM EST in the sign of Aquarius. Today also kicks off a New Lunar Year! It’s time to wave goodbye to the Year of the Fire Cock Rooster and say hello to the Year of the Earth Dog — which will reign until February 4th, 2019.

 “2018 comes with a warning label: Don’t mess with the bitches! The Dog is associated with Western astrology’s Libra, the sign of equality and justice. The age-old, imbalanced power dynamics between men and women will continue to raise hackles in 2018. Domineering types who use their stature to intimidate, control and abuse the pack could be locked out of the doghouse. Dog years can be stabilizing for relationships, as the association with marriage-minded Libra will put folks in a mate-for-life mindset. Heavy petting, anyone? “I need more affection” may be a common cry in 2018. Couples should slow down and reconnect through touch. Single? You could find love through a pack-mate’s introduction, so don’t skip out on the group hangs. Tinder and dating apps could take a backseat to IRL meetups. During Dog years, body language and chemistry (yep, those pheromones are real) are the true litmus test—and can’t be sensed on screen.” -Astrotwins

Venus in Pisces; Feb. 10 – Mar. 6 2018 💙♀♓

“Mesmerised by an ocean dream,
Eternal life, alone and free.
Rolling waves, sea pure and clear,
Maybe I’ve found shelter from the storm.”
Alice Morris, A Mermaid’s Dream

 

An escape into beauty and fantasy arrives today, as Venus enters the mystical realm of Pisces. Our approach to love is impacted by whatever sign Venus happens to be in, and romance doesn’t get much more enchanting than when Venus is in the sensitive Water sign of Pisces.

“The mood of love is one of wanting to be fully absorbed in the moment — its sounds, the space between words, a look or smile that speaks volumes. Venus in Pisces is for the cozy corner table with candlelight, or going away to a place where nobody knows you…” -Molly Hall

Empathy, tolerance and understanding are among the highest expressions of Piscean/Neptunian energy. The most sublime creative potential is available to us during the next four weeks. The ecstasy of self-expression through poetry, photography, or other form of art is enhanced.

An enlightening energy-field descends during a Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse. Other cosmic golden nuggets on Wednesday include Messenger of the Gods Mercury entering Aquarius until February 17th and a good-luck charm hidden within a resplendent Venus-Jupiter parallel (8:14am). Today’s tour-de-force has vast ramifications for Earth’s evolution in the solar system while numerous waves of exalted goodwill spread around the globe.” -Mark Lerner
