Virgo New Moon. A Car Full of Nerves.

Virgo New Moon
August 30
3:37am  PDT
6 Virgo 47

Mars the planet of fast cars is all over this New Moon chart.   We are all in a fast red Ferrari.  While driving fast in the mountains will we be able to see the forest for the trees?   We better.    I was a little tardy getting the article up (how unFarrari of me) but it should all make sense.  You will find it HERE.

August 15: Aquarius Full Moon

Full moon of weird on a fridge with cuckoo spin art 

Aquarius Full Moon
August 15, 2019
5:29am PDT 

Betty Banana, one of the bunch?
Extra in the background scenes? 

Is this you?    

Okay.   No one is judging. 

But do not ever believe for one minute you are NOT weird or odd.    You can tell yourself you are bland –but you are not devoid of weird.  Every human on god’s green earth is weird somewhere.  And during the full moon in Aquarius we find our weird.     

This particular Aquarius full moon is challenging because there are so many planets on the other side of the moon, in the sign Leo, sucking up a lot of oxygen.   The Sun and Venus right on top of each other and nearby Mars and they all want to play and laugh and have fun and spend, be big, indulge, party and celebrate - and if they get sloppy –their response is ‘So what?”   While Moon in Aquarius knows there is something going on out there that is way bigger than our play toys and playtime and is bugged by self indulgences and ‘missed‘ opportunities.   In addition, Aquarius likes to mix things up and if everyone has got their party on -Aquarius can bring a wet blanket.  Not just to be negative or contrarian (which it can do) but more because it doesn’t ‘get’ what everyone is talking about or doing.    On this full moon, the way to work through these opposite expressions is to --find and lean into our weird.  Ask yourself where you are not like the crowd?   Or how is your crowd no longer fitting you? 

We only get one Aquarius full moon a year and this is the perfect moon to key into where we need to detach.    During these 3 days  there could be serious crazy which pushing you that there may be a Where, a Who and a What that is growing old.   Some of you may act on that feeling but a lot will just note the feeling of needed detachment.  It may serve us later.   Also, Uranus the ruler of Aquarius is squaring Mercury so our thinking could be extra chilly. Even if we are playing and having fun it just may not feel like it is enough.   Again, note it but don’t collapse into that feeling.  This is an air moon so we are working on our thinking and the mentality of our life.  In the meantime remember that all the planets in Leo speak to finding authenticity born from love.    Actions based on love will be in the news this full moon.  Will it move you?   Will it make you cold about areas of your life that are inauthentic?   Will it make you wish to do more?  Will you break free from being Betty Banana one of the bunch?  Anything is possible, because Aquarius is just that weird with opportunities.

August 11 Jupiter & Uranus

August 11 
6:37am PDT 
Jupiter Station Direct 
14 Sag 30 

August 11 
Uranus station retrograde 
6 Taurus 36 

We can all put a red star on August 11 because it is no simple Sunday (USA Time zone).    On the 11thwe have two major planets change direction.   Jupiter who has been retrograde since April 10, will be stationing direct in the morning of the 11that 14 degrees of Sagittarius.   And in the early evening Uranus will station retrograde at 6 degrees of Taurus beginning its journey back to 2 degrees of Taurus on January 10th

We love Jupiter in Sag for being bold and visionary and standing up on a hill and saying, ‘Hey everyone there is something cool over there.  Let’s go check it out.”   However during the three month retrograde not everything ‘cool’ panned out.   Jupiter stationing direct suggests a more sober approach as we process our goals and visions that Sagittarius points out.    We are not cynical but we take a moment and make sure any opinion or philosophy or vision we embrace is in sync with our inner truth.      Jupiter will continue his new more measured journey in Sag until Dec 3 then he moves into conservative Capricorn.   Where in your life has the velocity accelerated since April?  How can this area still be inspired but calmer?  Where do you feel like you have moved from student to teacher?  How can you share your knowledge?  What special voice do you now own and someone needs to hear it?  Let’s get our Jupiter on in these last few months of his Sag journey.  He won’t be here again for a dozen years so now make the most of it!  

Uranus spends half the year every year in retrograde.   Globally there could be some sharp issues around banks, money, finances and more border issues.   Land use and private properties including businesses will be in the news.  Practical new innovation or the need for innovation will also be in the news.   Personally those people with planets at early Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius could feel chaos and changes from out of the blue.    There will be cage rattles for sure but what is important is how to respond to the changes.   Instead of feeling like it is ‘happening to me’ we should try our best to own the changes, ‘Okay now I’m doing this..”    Because we know mentally, it is better to drive the car than to be taken for a ride.   
Uranus will end this retrograde at 2 degrees Taurus on January 10.  Two days later will be the Saturn Pluto conjunction.   That is one of the most important aspects of the 21stcentury.    Watch what Uranus brings up for you during these next five months it may speak to what is important for you in the new environment that Saturn/Pluto will bring in January.

Mercury Station Direct

Mercury Direct.  
July 31 
8:57pm PDT
23 Cancer 56 

While the New Moon chart has Mercury retrograde suggesting thoughts and communication have a confusing element during the 29 day cycle, it is not entirely chaotic because within one hour after the launch of New Moon, Mercury stations direct.   This retrograde had us finding and processing our emotions and then finding ways to communicate the deep feelings inside us.    Now on the Leo New Moon where we celebrate our own style and uniqueness we get a boost from Mercury helping us communicate more effectively.    Our mental state has been on an emotional journey for the last three weeks.  What it has learned and how it expresses itself will begin to unfold.   Consider what came up for you since June 20?    And how have you been processing the beefs and stresses and emotions that have been in your sights since July 7?   How are you finding your strength?    And how are you realizing your deep emotions are your strength?    This Mercury retrograde has traveled from 4 degrees Leo back to 23 degrees Cancer.    On one level our identity and self esteem have felt pushed to the very brink. Thoughts of “Who am I?”  have percolated up  and rattled us to our bones. But our emotions have answered us that we are humans finding our ways and gentleness of self and to others will help us find our balance.   We can be bold and unique and special while also acknowledging others in their own power.  And to that we say, “Thank you, Mercury retrograde. I learned a lot.”
