Full Moon in Aquarius 2020



Full Moon in Aquarius 
8/3/20  8:58 AM 
Natural Chart / Whole Houses 

A Full Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon occupy the same degrees of opposing astrological signs. As you can see from the above Full Moon Chart, the Sun is at 11° Leo and the Moon is 180° away at 11° Aquarius making this a Full Moon. When two planets form an opposition in this manner it creates a division. Two things are being split apart or divided. 

The Big Picture 

Aquarius is associated with groups of like minded individuals. They usually come together for a single purpose which serves the group's interests or agenda and which is greater than that of any one individual. For this reason Aquarius rules over clubs, organizations, friends, groups, and associations. 

On the flipside, Leo is more about the individual. Leo is the dramatic actor who needs to take center stage and get all the attention for themselves. They can be quite territorial!  They are not concerned with the needs of the many (in a general sense here) but rather with their own needs. 

So what we can expect from this Full Moon in Aquarius? Well a divide between the group agenda / needs and the needs of the individual is expected. With the Full Moon in Aquarius friends and associations come under scrutiny and some relationships or associations may come to an end. Alternately, an acquaintance may become a closer friend. People are, generally speaking, less materialistic now and more charitable. People tend to focus on their dreams for the future now as well as their place in the world.  Now is the time to take steps towards realizing ones dreams or abandon them all together for something more realistic.  

Working with Full Moon in Aquarius Energy

  • Donate time, money, or energy to a worthy humanitarian cause 
  • Sign a petition for a cause that you believe in 
  • Join a group that interest you. 
  • Start a club or organization that you would want to join. 
  • Participate in a Protest March 
  • Get involved in local politics 
  • Research a topic that you're in interested in (especially if it involves technology or cutting edge science) 
  • Give yourself more freedom   

The Personal Touch  

To better understand how the Full Moon in Aquarius will affect you on an individual level you need to look at the houses in which Aquarius and Leo fall in your natal chart. For example, in my own chart Aquarius is in the 4th Natal House and Leo is in the 10th.  These two houses are known as the Angular Houses (along with the 1st and 7th) and these are very powerful houses. The fourth house is known as the Imum Coeli (IC) and the tenth house is known as the Midheaven or Medium Coeli (MC). 

Whereas the IC rules over our home and private life, the MC rules over our public life and reputation. For me, there would seem to be a divide between my sense of privacy and what I share with the public (or how I am perceived by the public). With the Full Moon in the 4th house, endings related to the home and family are indicated. This may also be a situation that I would want to keep from the public or to somehow control the flow of information so as the prevent misunderstanding with the public.  

You can go deeper by checking the aspects between the Full Moon in 11° Aquarius and other points in your natal chart. For example, in my own chart the Transit Moon is making an Opposition to my Natal MC. What this means is that my emotions turn inwards and I will not want to deal with the public or people in general. I'll want to spend more time alone in familiar surroundings (my home) and only have contact with close friends and family members. I may feel more possessive of the people close to me or a strong desire to belong to someone which provides a sense of security  

How will the Full Moon in Aquarius affect you?

The Sun in Leo 2020



The Sun in Leo 
7/22/20  1:37 AM PDT 
Natural Chart / Whole Houses 

Sun in Leo (General) 

When the Sun is in Leo, people are more interested in fun and less interested in work and responsibilities. They usually spend more time with their friends, socializing, going on dates, or they spend more time on their hobbies.  People can be more extroverted and high on life.  People just want more attention, in general, and they are more likely to stunt on others or be more melodramatic to get that attention. 

Where Leo falls in your natal chart is the area of life that is being activated by the Sun in Leo. 

  • If your rising sign is Aries, Leo is your 5th House. 
  • If your rising sign is Taurus, Leo is your 4th House. 
  • If your rising sign is Gemini, Leo is your 3rd House. 
  • If your rising sign is Cancer, Leo is your 2nd House. 
  • If your rising sign is Leo, Leo is your 1st House. 
  • If your rising sign is Virgo, Leo is your 12th House. 
  • If your rising sign is Libra, Leo is your 11th House. 
  • If your rising sign is Scorpio, Leo is your 10th House. 
  • If your rising sign is Sagittarius, Leo is your 9th House. 
  • If your rising sign is Capricorn, Leo is your 8th House. 
  • If your rising sign is Aquarius, Leo is your 7th House. 
  • If your rising sign is Pisces, Leo is your 6th House. 

Example 

Sun + Leo + 10th House 

When we apply our keywords to the Sun (I am) in Leo (I will) and the 10th house of career ambition and profession we can translate this to I am willing to use my focus and energy to further my career. When the Sun is in Leo and the 10th house, your focus is on your career, goals, and the direction of your life. You may find yourself torn between wanting to have fun and wanting to work hard to have more accolades and notoriety. Your higher ups are definitely giving you the attention (and scrutiny) that you want so you're going to have to be careful that you present yourself as someone who is responsible and mature and who can make the right decisions. It's okay to have fun, to socialize, and engage in your hobbies on your own time --- just don't let it interfere with your work. 

Aspects 

Aspects, or relationships between planets, is another dimension of astrological interpretation that could be and should be considered. Let us suppose that you have Mars in 9° Taurus, then this would mean that the Transit Sun is forming a square to your Natal Taurus. A square is a type of aspect in which the urge or energy of one planet is in conflict with the urge or energy of another planet. When the Sun forms a square to Mars you can feel restless and have either too much or too little energy. You can be more irritable and find yourself quarrelling with others. 

Ruler of the House 

The Ruler of the House can also be considered. The Sun rules Leo, so the ingress of the Sun in Leo will have an affect on the area of life that that Leo rules in your Natal, or Birth, Chart. For example, let us say that Leo is your 10th House in your natal chart. this would mean that the Ruler of the 10th House is in the 10th House. 

To begin our interpretation we might say that building up a good reputation in business and gaining recognition for your achievements become a goal in and of itself. This is a time in which you really want a profession in which you can make a name for yourself. You're not really thinking about short term satisfaction but rather long term goals and aspirations.  You can lay the foundation now for great success and achievement later. You're more ambitious and want to rise to the top of your profession or field. Fame and recognition becomes important to you. 

How will the ingress of the Sun in Leo manifest for you?

Full Moon in Capricorn





Full Moon in Capricorn
July 4th 2020  9:44 PM PDT
Natural Chart / Whole Houses 

A Full Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon occupy the same degree of opposite signs of the zodiac.  As you can see from the chart above, the Moon is at 13° Capricorn and the Sun is at 13° Cancer forming an opposition creating a dynamic of challenging one another; something is being split or divided.

The Big Picture

Capricorn rules over our careers, ambition, profession, who you are in public. When the Full Moon is in Capricorn, people are more interested in their own careers, and their own path to success. They want their work to not only be noticed but rewarded as well. It is important now that they are able to take constructive criticism well. This is a good time to re-asses goals and aspirations pertaining to your career; or have a talk with your boss or mentor about taking on more responsibility, or asking for a review of your work to see what you can do better.  

This is a dynamic that we will see play out in the world at large, and in our personal lives. We can see this dynamic play out by watching the news and seeing events take place in the lives of our friends and associations on social media.  

How to Work with Full Moon in Capricorn Energy 

  • practice "TR" total responsibility for your own thoughts, words and esp. actions. 
  • evaluate and refine your goals and life direction 
  • let go of or release laziness 
  • be more of an independent, goal-oriented self-starter. 
  • create a "business plan" or "flow chart" to help you achieve life goals
  • let purpose drive your actions 
  • read the biography of someone you admire 
  • establish boundaries (esp. between work and home)
The Personal Touch 

To better understand how the Full Moon in Capricorn will affect you on a personal level, you need to look at your natal chart and determine where Capricorn and Cancer fall in terms of natal houses. These are the areas of life where you will feel a division.  For example, in my own chart the 3rd and 9th houses are affected. This can indicate feeling torn between the desire to play it safe close to home and the desire to explore the world outside my comfort zone.  

Aspects 

Aspects, or relationships between planets, are another dimensions of astrological interpretation that should be examined. You want to look at the type of aspects, or relationships (if any) that the Full Moon is making to the planets in your birth chart. For example, in my own chart the Full Moon is applying a square to my Natal Chiron in Aries and this can result in feeling as if I cannot express my emotional needs for whatever reason. 

Where does the Full Moon in Capricorn fall in your Chart and how will it manifest for you?

Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn





Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn 
July 1st, 2020  4:37 PM (Pacific) 
Whole House Chart 

What Does Retrograde Mean?

A planet is retrograde when it appears to move backwards across the cosmos from our perspective on Earth. We mostly hear about retrograde in relation to Mercury which occurs three times a year and last for roughly three weeks each time. Generally speaking, retrograde are times of REsearchREviewREvisionREconsideration, and REevaluation relating to the urges or energies of the planet in question. 

Saturn Retrograde  (Aquarius / Capricorn) 

May 11th, 2020 to September 29th, 2020

Saturn Retrograde began in 1° Aquarius. Saturn is the planet that seeks out structure and stability. He is all about discipline and order. With Saturn in Retrograde you can expect delays in any effort to grow on your part --- or the part of others for that matter. Such delays teach us patience and gives us the opportunity to review any changes we would like to make. This is a good time to review our long-term goals for the future and any plans we may have for success and achievement. Trying to move forward now can actually make us fall behind. 

To better understand how Saturn Retrograde will affect you, look to the house that Aquarius and Capricorn occupy in your birth chart and check if Saturn makes any aspects to your natal planets. 

Aspects 
  • Any planets within +/- 3°  of 29° Capricorn  will form a conjunction 
  • Any planets within +/- 3°  of 29° Pisces or Scorpio will form a sextile 
  • Any planets within +/- 3°  of 29° Aries or Libra will form a square 
  • Any planets within +/- 3°  of 29°  Taurus or Virgo will form a trine 
  • Any planets within +/- 3°  of 29° Cancer will form an opposition. 

Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn 

In modern astrology, Saturn is a planet associated with discipline and responsibility. Transits of Saturn can feel like we have been chewed up and spit out but it is often for our own good.  In this respect I see Saturn as a teacher very much like the character of Severus Snape in the Harry Potter books. Severus is a gruff, rude, rigid, and unyielding disciplinarian. He is countered by Albus Dumbledore (a kind of Jupiter figure) who is open-minded, benevolent, permissive, and generous.  However, the thing that they both have in common is that they both care about Harry Potter, in their own way and for their own reasons, and they both want to protect him and see him succeed.   

When Saturn stations retrograde, we begin to (re)think about our responsibilities,  (re)assess our limitations and (re)evaluate our goals.  Saturn retrograde calls on you to take a look at where there is imbalance in your life and how to bring back that balance.  Is your love life suffering because you devote so much time to work? Is your work unsatisfying because you play too much? To create and maintain harmony will take some give and take or practice and experimentation to figure out what works best for you. The area of life that Capricorn falls in your Natal chart is the area of life where the most action will take place. 


Saturn Retrograde & You

Saturn Retrograde brings the opportunity for us to redefine, restructure, or reorganize some area of our life in some way. The house where Capricorn falls in your natal, or birth, chart is the area of life where these opportunities and lessons will be presented to you. When Saturn stations direct again, it is time to apply what your learned to your life. 


The 12 Areas of Life 

  1. self, outlook, persona, appearance, outward behavior, "mask", individuality, vitality. 
  2. money, material things, possessions, values, security, resources, self-worth, how you make money. 
  3. conscious mind, near environment, short journeys, communication, self-expression, how you learn. 
  4. home, roots, mother, traditions, subconscious, where you live, property, early life conditions. 
  5. self-expression, creativity, pleasure, what you love, hobbies, talents, need for attention. 
  6. employment, work, co-workers, working conditions, health, routine, health, diet, hygiene, service to others. 
  7. marriage, agreements, partnerships, relationships, close associates, open enemies, peers, contracts. 
  8. sex, death, birth, transformation, shared resources, spirituality 
  9. higher education, ethics, travel, foreign people and places, religion, publishing, media, internet
  10. career, ambition, profession, public reputation, status, responsibilities, authority figures, father. 
  11. hopes, dreams, wishes, ideals, goals, associates, acquaintances, groups, friends, humanitarianism 
  12. subconscious mind, unseen or hidden matters, secrets, fears, hidden enemies, spirituality, withdrawal. 

Example 

Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn and the 3rd House 

Capricorn falls in my third house, so this is a time in which I will be presented with lessons pertaining to my thought processes and how I communicate with other people. When Saturn stations direct I can apply what I have learned so that I can connect and communicate more effectively with others. 

What house does Capricorn fall in your birth chart and how will the ingress of Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn manifest for you?

Horoscopes July 2020


July Horoscopes 

by Carolina Dean 

Aries- You might experience the feeling of no longer being in control of your own home. You want to take back some of that control by giving it a good cleaning, clearing out old clutter, remodeling, rearranging, or renovating your living space. As you work on the outer issues, this is also a good time to work on inner issues such as your relationships with your family and shore up you ancestral foundations. Your mind is hungry for new knowledge and new information, you may find yourself reading more books and / or websites, you might take a class, or get to know the people around on a much more deeper level than before. You live for conversation and really enjoy rubbing elbows with other people for no other purpose but for the experience. 

Taurus- You're less optimistic this month and may suffer from frustration and anxiety. You may shy away from people in general and have trouble speaking or communicating effectively. As a result it is possible that troubles with neighbors can or accidents close to home can occur. Opportunities to make more money may come to you this month, however, there may be a tendency to spend more money as well so it is important that you really pay attention to your finances and not put yourself in debt spending money in order to make yourself feel better. Adhering to the same old routine can make you feel restless and unfulfilled. You are driven to have more life and have it more abundantly. 

Gemini- You don't feel confident in your sense of material security right now. You may have trouble hanging onto money or obtaining anything of value. You resolve to be more disciplined with your material resources and take a cautious approach to spending or investing your resources. Though you lack confidence in your material success, you have an overall positive attitude and a sense of optimism that everything will ultimately work out. In fact, maintain a positive and friendly attitude will go a long way towards making you feel better about your lot in life. You're not satisfied with your life and want to and make an effort to change it for the better. You want more control and power in your life and may have disputes with anyone who wants to exercise any power over you.

Cancer- You have more self-discipline this month and see things through a more realistic point of view. You aren't fooling yourself about who you are and what you are capable of. You strive for self-improvement which begins with making the right choices. It may be hard for you to get along with others right now due to your strong sense of competitiveness which you take personally. Whether in business, love, or friendship, you really need someone to challenge you or else you get easily bored and become disinterested. You want more drama and excitement in your life and this comes through in your search for love and romance.

Leo- You're more introspective this month and spend a lot of time exploring your subconscious. You make an effort to relieve yourself of any emotional baggage that you may be carrying. This is not an ideal time to start anything new or make any long term commitments, but rather this is a time to exercise self care and spiritual maintenance. Its important that you do not isolate yourself too much and make sure that you spend some time among friends or those of like mind and interest. Helping others through humanitarian efforts helps you to forget about your own woes for a time while also making you feel better about your self and the state of your life.

Virgo- This month you may see many superficial relationships come to an end as people drift away or you make a conscious decision to put more of a distance between yourself and those you no longer click with on a significant level. You want to focus on forming more meaningful relationships and profound connections with others. You don't have time for any meaningless or superficial people or relationships. This could be a great time for your career. Your hard work pays off and is noticed by your superiors and other people who matter. An important conversation with your boss, supervisor, or mentor can take place this month.

Libra- It's nose to the grindstone and shoulder to the wheel for you this month as you try to become more dedicated and disciplined in your career. You want to be seen as an authority figure and may even take on extra duties. However, all work and no play makes you grumpy and irritable and so you should caution yourself against snapping at others. However, it is also likely that you are using work as an excuse not to let your hair down and enjoy yourself. Accepting any invitation that takes you outside your comfort zone is favored this month.

Scorpio- You're more cynical now and go through a period of disillusionment in which you question your beliefs. You want to get serious about your higher values but this requires serious study and soul-searching on your part. This is a time in which you are primed for spiritual growth and transformation. However, this might require you to go through the "dark night of the soul" before you reach a new level of enlightenment. You have more energy for communication and short trips around the neighborhood this month in your search for spiritual truth. Now is a good time to talk to your friends, your neighbors, and your elders. 

Sagittarius- You find yourself struggling with issues of self-control and personal power this month. You can either be a controlling yourself or simply give up too much of your own personal power to others allowing them to dominate you. You could meet someone this month who can help you recognize, heal, and grow from this place of imbalance in your life. Conversely, you could also end a relationship with someone who contributes negatively to your issues with power. You are driven to act on your feelings about your sense of security and values. You work harder so that you can earn more money, have more disposable income and a greater sense of security. 

Capricorn- Relationships pose a problem for you this month and you find yourself having to deal with issues related to your partner in business or love. In fact, an important relationship may come to an end or you may experience blocks in attempting to establish new relationships. Perhaps trying to forget your relationship woes you throw yourself into your work and things go well in that area of your life. You are more organized and able to get things done correctly, efficiently and in a timely manner. You have more energy now and have the drive to get things done. However, you are more apt to act on your feelings and assert yourself especially when challenged. 

Aquarius- You're all about organization this month and are ready to refine your routines and streamline your processes. You want to be more efficient and organized in your daily life. This is a good time for you to learn how to manage your time properly and be more responsible. However, as hard as you work you also want to play and be creative. Having fun is the reward of hard work and so once you get your work done you feel better about throwing yourself into fun activities that you enjoy such as a hobby that allows you to (re)connect with your childlike spirit. Your dreams become more meaningful and or you may have trouble sleeping. You feel the urge to withdraw into yourself to rest, give yourself time to reflect on your life and replenish your vital life energy.

Pisces- You're feeling less energetic than usual and don't have time, energy, or interest in things that once brought you joy. Your creative endeavors no longer inspire you and you may even feel unworthy of love. Now is the time to be your own advocate, your own muse, your own cheerleader, and your own healer. You might be feeling a little boxed in in your own home and feel a need for more freedom and expansion. You might clear the clutter out of your home, re-arrange the furniture, or otherwise make more room for you to move about. You may even move into another, bigger home altogether. In either case, a change of scenery may represent progress in life for you and eliminate that sense of staleness that has lingered over your life. Shaking up your life gives you more energy and drive and you are drawn to things people and ideas that are considered strange or unusual.

Mars in Aries 2020





Mars in Aries 
June 27th, 2020  6:45 PM 
Natural Chart / Whole Houses 

Note: Due to the upcoming Mars Retrograde in September, Mars will transit Aries for the next six months. 

Mars in Aries (General) 

When Mars is in Aries people are more aggressive, forceful, independent, self-reliant, assertive, courageous, and combative. In terms of essential dignity, Mars "rules" Aries and so this is a strong position for the red planet. Mars in this position is generally said to give people more energy and drive to do the things that they want to do and are excited about. There is danger here in starting things that you don't finish because you have taken on too much responsibility. People can be more impulsive in general and eager to confront others about long festering issues or anything that might set them off. In general, people are more competitive and need a physical outlet for their energy. 

The house where Aries falls in your birth, or Natal, chart is the area of life where you will see an increase in energy, competitiveness, and confrontation. For example. 

  • If your rising sign is Aries, Aries is your 1st  House  
  • If your rising sign is Taurus, Aries is your 12th House 
  • If your rising sign is Gemini, Aries is your 11th House
  • If your rising sign is Cancer, Aries is your 10th House 
  • If your rising sign is Leo, Aries is your 9th House
  • If your rising sign is Virgo, Aries is your 8th House
  • If your rising sign is Libra, Aries is your 7th House 
  • If your rising sign is Scorpio, Aries is your 6th House 
  • If your rising sign is Sagittarius, Aries is your 5th House
  • If your rising sign is Capricorn, Aries is your 4th House 
  • If your rising sign is Aquarius, Aries is your 3rd House 
  • If your rising sign is Pisces, Aries is your 2nd House
  
Example

Mars in Aries and the 6th House 

Here the urge to be competitive and confrontational is strong and aggressive and this plays out in the area of both health and work.  With Mars in Aries and the 6th house you have more energy for work which is good because you are busier than usual and have to cope with many details. For you, things have to be done in a logical, systematic matter which may frustrate other because they may feel that you are not moving as fast as they like. Relationships with co-workers (especially bosses or supervisors) can be more tense now. The good news is also have more energy to direct towards getting healthier. This is a good time to start an exercise routine to work off some of that excess energy (and weight). 

Aspects 

Aspects, or relationships between planets, are another dimension of astrological interpretation that should be considered. Let us suppose that you have Natal Neptune at 4° Sagittarius. That would mean that Transit Mars at 0° Aries is approaching a trine to Neptune.  When  Mars is Trine Neptune your intuition and empathy are given a boost. You're more creative and want to experiment with different ways to express your creativity. You are more gently and compassionate with yourself and others.

Ruler of the House 

The ruler of the house should be considered. Mars rules Aries so the entrance of Mars into Aries will have an affect on the area of life that Aries rules in your chart.  For example, let us say that Aries is in the 6th house in your natal chart. This would mean that the Ruler of the Sixth House is in the Sixth House.

To begin our interpretation we might say that the activities of the 6th house serve the agenda of the 6th house. This might be expressed as "employment, work, co-workers, working conditions, health, routine, diet, and service to others serve employment, work, co-workers, working conditions, health, routine, diet, and service to others"  We can extrapolate on this statement and say something like "you create habits and routines that are conducive to being more productive in the work that you do. Having a routine gives you a sense of security and satisfaction. You might expect your co-workers to have a system or a routine to which they adhere as well. "

Moon in Virgo (General) 

When the moon is in Virgo, people are generally more organized and productive. Their emotions are aligned with their work and they get a great deal of satisfaction out of completing their daily tasks and responsibilities. Relationships with co-workers go well now and you seek to bring order where ever you encounter chaos. Generally speaking, people may feel the need to take steps to improve their health in some way. 

The house that Virgo occupies in your natal, or birth chart, is the area of life where you will feel the impact of the Moon in Virgo.

Example

The Moon in Virgo and the 11th House 

When the moon is in Virgo and the 11th house you are more critical of the friends, groups, and people that you associate with.  You crave more freedom and more excitement and find that you are attracted to new and different people who can offer you unique experiences.  This is a good time to focus on your hopes and dreams -- either identifying them or begin working towards them. 

Aspects

Aspects, or relationships between planets, are another dimensions of astrological interpretation that should be considered. The Moon only stays in each sign for about 2.5 days so any aspects it forms to your natal planets will be short lived. Let us suppose, however, that you have Venus in 02° Scorpio, then this would mean that the transit moon is approaching a sextile to your natal Venus. A sextile is considered a soft, or easy, aspect in which the energy or urge of one planet cooperated with the energy or urge of another planet.

When the transit Moon is sextile to Natal Venus, you're more amorous and people are attracted to your aura of attractiveness.  This is a good time to practice self-care, get your hair done, take a long hot, bubble-bath, have your nails done, etc... You're more social now, you want to see people and do things but more importantly you want to be seen and appreciated! Spending money is okay now, but don't overdo it!
