The North Node In Leo Manifesto

 

The sign of big hearts, big mouths and big hair emits a steady warmth from May 9th, 2017 through November 6th, 2018 as the North Node travels through the sign of Leo. Leo is a fixed sign, ruled by the Sun; the North Node shows where to travel to find our bliss. While in Virgo, the North Node taught us the importance of using discernment, discretion, critical thinking and attention to finer details in the face of doubt and uncertainty. Now, we’ve got some finely honed skills, we know how to use them and we’re not afraid to show it! [Read more…]

Real Time Astrology: New Moon In Aries March 27th, 2017

 

The first lunation after the spring equinox (Sun entering Aries) in the northern hemisphere occurs March 27th (9:57 P.M. CST) in the form of a New Moon at 7 degrees Aries. The most notable feature of this New Moon is the conjunction to love, relationships, money and aesthetics planet Venus, in detriment and retrograde at 3 degrees Aries. Venus in a martial sign is in a mutual reception to Mars in Taurus, also in detriment. Flirtatious fighting! To paraphrase Tina Turner, this Aries New Moon can do things nice and easy, but it’s more fun to serve it up nice and rough… [Read more…]

Real Time Astrology: March 2017

 

March marches along (sorry) at a fairly ho-hum pace at first, picking up the tempo by months end. This is, of course, Pisces season, with Mercury in Pisces until March 13th and the Sun in Pisces until March 20th. The most notable of the events in March has already occurred by the time of this post (sorry!): Venus stationing retrograde at 13 degrees Aries on Saturday, March 4th. Venus will remain retrograde until April 15th and will remain retrograde in Aries for the rest of March. (Venus will retrograde into Pisces in April). Venus is in detriment in Aries, meaning it has to work harder here than in any other sign to express it’s true nature. This goes double when Venus is retrograde. The focus is the turning of values inwards and away from the values of society, our values as sovereign individuals becomes more important. Venus retrograde in Aries often shows the need to stand up, defend, or fight for the right to express individualistic values. This retrograde could very well be the end of many relationships and partnerships this month; of those that remain intact, there will have to be a newfound respect for the rights of the other to have their own values that may or may not match yours. The ability or lack thereof to allow differences can be the make or break of alliances. [Read more…]

Real Time Astrology: Full Moon In Virgo March 12th, 2017

 

The Full Moon of Sunday, March 12th (9:54 AM CST) will fall at 22 degrees Virgo. A strange mash-up, this one. The opposition between the unfocused Sun and Mercury in Pisces to the focused and industrious Virgo Full Moon looks like an effort to bring order out of chaos, something particularly relevant as the first lunation after two potent eclipses that mopped the floor with many of us (myself included). Man, what chaos. We’re still in Pisces season, still reeling from that doozy of a Pisces eclipse, still trying to summon the emotional energy to get going again. The Virgo Full Moon, while trying to set things right again through emotional control and rationale, still has to contend with a fair amount of chaos. This isn’t necessarily a tough Full Moon but it can be a headache for some. [Read more…]
