FIRST DAY OF SUMMER 2016: THE SUMMER SOLSTICE

This year the heavenly bodies seem to have conspired to sweeten the pot with an event we haven’t seen in 70 years. The summer solstice isn’t a rare event, a full moon even less so. But they’re both special, and when they just so happen to occur on the same day, as they will this year? That’s once-in-a-lifetime special. The 2016 North American summer solstice happens on June 20, 2016 at 6:34 PM EDT. That’s the very moment when, essentially, the sun stands still at its northernmost point … [Read more...]

Winter Solstice 2015

Everything You Need to Know About the Winter Solstice From astronomy to religion, the year's shortest day brings enduring mysteries. The Northern Hemisphere's procession of dwindling days is about to reach its nadir. The winter solstice is the year's shortest day, but the start of winter also launches the sun's steady climb towards the long, warm days of summer. The solstice occurs on Tuesday, December 22 at 4:48 UTC—that's late Monday night across most of North America. It happens … [Read more...]

But the moon isn’t anywhere near full on this date! That’s right. This isn’t a full supermoon. Rather, … [Read more...]

Mercury Retrograde Shadow until July 16, 2014

What is Mercury Retrograde? Three, and sometimes four, times a year, the planet Mercury appears to be moving backwards in the sky for a period of approximately 3 weeks. "Appears" is the key word here, because, technically speaking, no planet actually moves backwards in their orbits around the Sun. In fact, they don't even slow down. Retrograde-station-direct cycles are essentially illusions that result from our point of view from Earth, simply because the Earth is also orbiting the Sun … [Read more...]

Blue Moon – August 20, 2013

When the moon rises Tuesday night (Aug. 20), it brings us the August full moon and in addition, it will also technically be a "Blue Moon." "But wait a minute," you may ask. "Isn't a Blue Moon defined as the second full moon that occurs during a calendar month? Tuesday’s full moon will be the only full moon of August 2013. So how can we call it a 'Blue' moon?" [Blue Moon Secrets Explained (Infographic)] Yet it still is a Blue Moon, but only if we follow a now somewhat obscure rule of … [Read more...]

New Moon (AUG 6) – Message from Joni Ross Astrologer‏

Tuesday, August 6, 2013, 5:51 PM EDT   With the Moon in Leo there is a strong urge to express oneself. Leo is associated with the Sun. Healthy Leo, healthy ego. More than any other sign, Leo rules creative actualization of the self. The ego in a healthy state is the sun-4[1]champion of the greater self. The more we know about who we are and the great potential we have as a human being the more we become adept at dealing with the wide range of experiences in life without needing an … [Read more...]

‘Women through a Full Moon’, next on July 22

THE CONCEPT – WOMEN AND THE FULL MOON DIARY   The Concept of ‘The Full Moon Diary’ for women is revolutionary in offering a tangible marker to follow and reclaim a natural process that has been known for thousands of years. And don’t worry, this does not require any moon dance rituals to be performed (unless this is a favorite past time of yours). The Full Moon Diary is simply a way for women to take a moment’s pause in their month, to self-nurture and reflect on the month that … [Read more...]

Lunar Eclipse In Sagittarius: Tall Tales And Happy Endings‏

People associate eclipses with calamity for some reason. This makes them nervous. In reality, each eclipse has a unique flavor. It makes sense to consider what you're dealing with before you go diving under the bed until the eclipse has passed. Have you see the movie, Big Fish? It's about a man who tells tall tales. What's distinct about this man and his stories is that all his stories end well. My friend and colleague, satori, likes to say, "If a story hasn't ended well, it's … [Read more...]

Heads Up For The Emotionally Rocky Weekend‏

The Moon leaves Leo for Virgo between now and Sunday, taking hits from a variety of planets throughout the weekend. You can expect some lumps in your sugar with this but it's nothing to panic over. To fare well, I'd align the energy of the Moon. That means drama (Leo) through Friday night. Saturday and Sunday think "multi-task". Get to work on details, communications and chores while the Moon transits Virgo. This alone will have you feeling (Moon) in tune on a personal level to … [Read more...]

Sun will be exactly conjunct Mars(competition) in Aries (courage)

This is an excellent time to breakaway from the pack. The Sun will be exactly conjunct Mars in Aries on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. This is especially notable because Mars is in it's own sign and the Sun is exalted. Aries is concerned with courage and fresh starts. Mars love competition and will fight to win. The Sun is a creative force. Solar energy is overt. This is why the Sun is high-functioning in Aries. Do you have the courage to shine brightly? You can think … [Read more...]

Elsa, Avoiding A Knock-Down Drag-Out Fight‏!

Venus conjuncts Mars in Aries today. Couples who are prone to fight probably will. I personally think it's okay to clear the decks now and then, but I know others don't agree. I will say this is not the best time for a knock-down drag-out fight. The Moon is in Pisces conjunct Neptune and Chiron and people are sensitive! Consequently, tactics (Aries) to avoid (Pisces) conflict make sense. The easiest way to do this is to join forces with your partner against a common enemy, even if … [Read more...]

FULL MOON

FULL MOONS A full moon is a lunar phase that occurs when the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. More precisely, a full moon occurs when the geocentric apparent (ecliptic) longitudes of the Sun and Moon differ by 180 degrees; the Moon is then in opposition with the Sun. Lunar eclipses can only occur at Full Moon, where the moon's orbit allows it to pass through the Earth's shadow. Lunar eclipses do not occur every month because the moon usually passes above or below the … [Read more...]

Elsa – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Chiron, Neptune all in one sign, PISCES!

Feel The Love...Then Take Off Like A Rocket!‏ This is our last fishy, swishy week. It peaks under the new moon on Monday at which point we'll have the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Chiron and Neptune all in one sign - PISCES! Talk about grace! If you do nothing else, this week, give someone, somewhere, a pass. Offer your forgiveness. Show benevolence. Let the love (Venus) and compassion (Pisces) you feel (Moon) be seen (Sun) and communicated (Mercury). There is a huge shift that … [Read more...]
