Weekly insights into the stars

A Complex Full Moon, Shifting Sands & Predictive Techniques

At a universal level this is not an easy Full Moon, firstly because it’s in Scorpio – the Moon’s sign of “fall”, most difficult combination, and secondly because it falls opposite volatile Uranus. Full Moons can be times of craziness (lunacy) in themselves (in any sign) which often relates to matters being at full stretch. Full Moons illuminate or bring a matter full circle.

Identifying Astrological Themes, Uranus’ Changes & the Art of Acceptance

But this is why I chose the quote from The Surrender Experiment. Michael Singer’s whole thesis spins around acceptance and engaging fully with whatever life chucks at us, whether we like what is happening or not.

The Queen and the Duke, Spinning Plates and Venus’ New Cycle

Breaking news astrologically, a copy of the Duke’s birth certificate, in Greek as he was born in Corfu. This made me smile – how very typical of a double Gemini to have two different times of birth and therefore two charts. But more importantly this is fascinating symbolically as the new chart changes the Ascendant to Leo … The synastry between the Duke and the Queen is also strengthened as this new chart shows that their Leo Moons are now in fact only 3 degrees apart.

Living with Uncertainty, the Power of You & Clean Slates

Mercury arriving in Aries at the weekend is another opportunity to start afresh, with a clean slate and an open mind. Whatever is important for you, there’ll be no time to waste as Mercury is going to fly through this sign in just two weeks. Some matters will just naturally unfold at breakneck speed anyway so another pointer for this week is to clear the decks and get ahead.
