Astrology May 7, 2020: Full Moon in Scorpio

Cosmic Weather:

“The causes of every human action, Tolstoy thought, were so manifold, so complex, and so deeply hidden in unconscious motivations that it is impossible to know why anything ever happened.” Mortimer J. Adler and Charles Van Doren

There’s a Full Moon in transformational Scorpio, this morning (at 6:45 am). It’s also the last Supermoon of 2020 (the other two were in March and April). Meaning that it’s occurring at the closest point to Earth during its orbit, making it appear larger and brighter.

Today’s Full Moon is also referred to in the Old Farmer’s Almanac as the “Full Flower Moon,” a name that originated with the Native Americans. Obviously echoing Mother Nature’s return to abundance in the Northern hemisphere when so much is abloom and full of life.

With today’s lunation, we are basically seeking to balance our need for physical comfort, safety, and security (Sun in Taurus) with an opposing desire for fulfillment or renewal in the spiritual/non-physical/inner realm (Moon in Scorpio). Whenever Luna is deposited in Pluto-ruled Scorpio (the sign of life, death, and rebirth), we are made more keenly aware of the profound mysteries of our existence, with Scorpio intently focusing on what’s hidden or below the surface.

So having a powerful, revelatory Full Moon occurring in Scorpio now we potentially have, among other things, a very potent opportunity for ferreting out the truth, as we know it or understand it. Especially since this Full Moon is forming an opposition to information-minded Mercury, which only three days ago formed an exact superior conjunction with the Sun. Normally a time (again) when we are presented with clear data or findings or experience sudden epiphanies. It could also be that today’s Full Moon opposition to that same Mercury-Sun meetup point takes those discoveries or results, one step further. Too, generally with a culminating Full Moon, we can have abrupt endings or receive final outcomes or are able to come to some pretty accurate conclusions or assessments about various elements of our lives, including possibly getting a good handle now on how we are coming along with the intentions that we may have set, or the actions that were taken, during the New Moon in Taurus, two weeks ago. 

Additionally, the Full Moon in passionate Scorpio may find our emotions at peak intensity, especially since Scorpio is a fixed water sign which tends to always feel things very deeply. There can also be more of an emphasis now on such issues as intimacy and trust, shared resources, and purging or refurbishing.

Also today, mental Mercury, in pragmatic Taurus, is forming a sextile to mystical Neptune in Pisces. This more subtle influence may help to bring our dreams into sharper focus. It can also supply us with a greater ability to express on an intellectual level what we are sensing more intuitively. Accordingly, today might also be a fun time to throw a few Tarot cards and see what comes up for us. It’s also an excellent time to investigate our nocturnal dreams. We may be experiencing more vivid dreams than usual now.

*All times EDT.

Happy Full Moon Blessings! Hope it’s a good one! Be safe and well.

Astrology May 5, 2020: The Lunar Nodes Change Signs

Cosmic Weather:

“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” John Adams

The North Node (symbolizing the future) moves into Gemini today and the South Node (representing the past) moves into opposing Sagittarius, signs they will occupy for the next 18 months. (The last time we had this same setup was from October of 2001 to April of 2003.)

In general, during this ingress, we are learning to be more curious, to do more questioning to learn how others think, and to examine facts more closely before rendering our decisions. Simultaneously, we are seeking to move away from wholesale rejection of others’ ideas or belief systems simply because they are in conflict with our own. We are also wanting to back up or reinforce our faith now with facts.

*All times EDT.

On This Day in History: John Scopes was arrested by Tennesse authorities on May 5, 1925, for teaching evolution in his high school science class. They charged him with having violated a newly enacted law (The Butler Act) that criminalized the teaching of human evolution in the state’s public schools. The famous “Scopes Trial” (also known as the “Scopes Monkey Trial”) pitted advocates of creationism against those who believed in evolution.

(Astrologically, when Scopes was arrested on May 5, information-minded Mercury, in trail-blazing Aries, was exactly square to philosophical Jupiter in traditionally-minded Capricorn. With Mercury-Jupiter aspects we generally aim to broaden our understanding or widen our perspectives and there is also often marked enthusiasm for sharing what it is that we have learned or studied. Jupiter, the planet which symbolizes the search for higher meaning, also formally governs both teaching and religion. On the shadow side, especially with the square, there can be arrogance, narrow-mindedness, self-righteousness, as well as a tendency towards proselytizing others towards our own point of view.)

“If today you can take a thing like evolution and make it a crime to teach it in the public school, tomorrow you can make it a crime to teach it in the private schools, and the next year you can make it a crime to teach it to the hustings or in the church. At the next session, you may ban books and the newspapers.”  – Clarence Darrow (the famed trial lawyer who represented John Scopes at his trial.)

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Hope it’s a good one! Be safe and well.

Astrology May 4, 2020: Mercury Conjunct Sun

Cosmic Weather:

“If one is master of one thing and understands one thing well, one has at the same time, insight into and understanding of many things.” Vincent Van Gogh

Intellectual Mercury is in superior conjunction with the purposeful Sun in grounded Taurus today (5:41 pm), which, in particular, could provide us with some epiphanies or aha moments pertaining to those things represented by Taurus, such as our values, money, personal possessions, and basic physical needs. Since the superior conjunction acts like a Full Moon, we may also see some of our ideas or plans coming to fruition now that were seeded during the inferior conjunction of Mercury and the Sun in dreamy Pisces, which occurred back on February 25th, when Mercury was retrograde. (The superior conjunction occurs when Mercury and the Sun are about halfway between the previous and next retrograde cycle.)

Waxing Luna also exited meticulous Virgo for balancing Libra, early this morning (at 3:09 am), which is always positive for putting us in a more cooperative spirit as well as inspiring us to seek out justice and fairness.

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” Theodore Parker.

*All times EDT.

On This Day in History: On May 4, 1979, Margaret Thatcher (born 10/13/25) becomes the first woman to be elected Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

(In the sky, that day, Mercury, Venus, and Mars were all conjunct in pioneering Aries and trine to idealistic Neptune in Sagittarius (the sign which rules politicians). This same trio of planets was also opposing transformational Pluto in equality-minded Libra.)

Thatcher served as Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990 and leader of the Conservative Party from 1975 to 1990. (Wikipedia)

Astrology May 3, 2020: Venus Square Neptune

Tags

, , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

“When you compare the sorrows of real-life to the pleasures of the imaginary one, you will never want to live again, only to dream forever.” Alexandre Dumas

Today has undertones of being at a Grand Masquerade Ball, in some ways, as social, romantic Venus (soon-to-be-retrograde) forms a waxing square to fantasy Neptune (11:52 pm). This more daydreamy aspect can, among other things, sometimes make it more challenging to see other people as they are partly because we seem to have more of a real need or desire now to want to place halos above nearly everybody’s head. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus and it’s associated with Divine Love or unconditional love or a boundary-less type of love that many of us may wish to sincerely experience in our hearts. This is why we can potentially be so vulnerable now: It’s like we don’t want that sacred veil to be pierced, at the moment, and then possibly face the chance of being starkly disillusioned by the underlying, harsher reality. Accordingly, any relationships, especially romantic ones, that begin under this aspect would most likely benefit from giving them a period of time to gel so we can see how they play out over the long haul. 

Because Venus also governs money, possessions, and how we derive pleasure, in general, we may also want to refrain from going overboard with things, particularly acquisitions, until we are more sure of what our true needs and desires are. Often what seems so glamorous to us, on the surface, with Venus-Neptune, proves otherwise later. On another level, Venus-Neptune energy can be extremely creative as it poises us to go deeper into the waters of our fertile imaginations. Many artists and musicians have Venus-Neptune aspects prominent in their personal charts.

Today’s Venus-Neptune square is the first of three squares, the other two will be taking place on May 20th and July 27th. Venus goes retrograde on May 13th.

Meanwhile, Waxing Luna remains ensconced in verifying Virgo all day, no doubt a good, overall counter or balance to the “I just wanna be swept off my feet” Venus-Neptune influence. Although, even the skeptical Virgo Moon is under some pressure this morning as she also forms a bewildering opposition to blurry-eyed Neptune (at 11:22 am). Fortunately, later on, however, Luna will be regaining her footing, quite a bit, when she forms flowing trines to transformational Pluto (at 7:01 pm) and big picture Jupiter (at 10:25 pm), both still conjunct in “keeping-it-real” Capricorn. Ideally, these two more hopeful aspects will provide us with a practical ability to see or plot futuristic trends, especially with respect to more large-scale issues. Moon-Pluto, in particular, can also be very healing energy and one that allows us to not only, individually and collectively, let go of the past, but also greatly learn from it, as well as being simultaneously positively reshaped by what we may have experienced. On another level, the Moon-Pluto energy can also sometimes help us to locate something that has been lost or perhaps hidden from view.

Astrology May 2, 2020: Three Virgo Moon Trines

Cosmic Weather:

“Let the improvement of yourself keep you so busy that you have no time to criticize others.” Roy T. Bennett

With the Moon in perfecting Virgo today, we are more naturally poised toward wanting to improve ourselves or elements of our lives in some way. The Virgo Moon is always excellent for organizing, tidying up, implementing health/dietary regimes, or involvement in detail-type projects. What’s also extra special and lovely about the energy today is that Luna in Virgo is also forming three flowing trine aspects to innovative Uranus, curious Mercury, and the illuminating Sun, all of which are stationed in earthy Taurus, the zodiacal sign which governs our values, money, and sense of comfort and pleasure. So it appears that we are getting a lot of cosmic assistance now to better our world in ways that feel very freeing, stimulating, and empowering and that also adds to our sense of enjoyment and groundedness. On another level, often with a Virgo Moon, we feel more compelled to be of service to others.

Astrology May 1, 2020: Waxing Leo Moon Opposes Mars

Cosmic Weather:

“Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.” Theodore Roosevelt

The Waxing Moon remains in colorful, self-confident Leo today and is forming an opposition to self-assertive Mars around lunchtime (at 12:04 pm). This aspect can provide us with intense emotion and a fighting spirit to achieve our ends. Since Mars is also in community-minded Aquarius, we may feel more motivated to involve ourselves in teamwork and a shared cause at this time. On the shadow side, the Moon-Mars energy is sometimes associated with impulsivity or being more easily irritated so we may need to dial back our responses, a bit, if we wish to, among other things, preserve the peace. On the other hand, Moon-Mars can also be a time when we deliberately choose to clear the air, especially if we have been carrying around pent-up grievances, as this planetary alignment tends to provide us with more courage and directness to speak our truth. On another level, the Moon in Leo can also put us in touch with our personal pride, or how we conduct ourselves with dignity and respect and show the same to others.

“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.” Jane Austen

Astrology April 30, 2020: First Quarter Square, Mercury Conjunct Uranus

Tags

, , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.” – Kurt Vonnegut

There’s a First Quarter Square between the dramatic Leo Moon and grounded Taurus Sun today (at 4:38 p,m). This may create a desire and a determination to want to venture outside the sanctity of our normal routines to experience something more glamorous or playful or creative.

Communicator Mercury is also having its annual conjunction with non-conforming Uranus in Taurus (values, money, comfort), later tonight (10:41 pm). Mercury-Uranus can sometimes feel like a bit of a horserace going on in our head as our thoughts and ideas can be galloping by us fast and furious now. Uranus, which is the higher octave of mental Mercury, generally tends to speed things up. This aspect is also associated with strokes of genius, originality, innovation, and intuition.

Since Mercury and Uranus are also aligned in financial Taurus it’s possible that we may come up with new or different ideas to make money now. Or, perhaps, it could be that we find ourselves facing situations or circumstances that challenge us now, maybe out of necessity, to simply be more creative or inventive in how we generate a revenue stream because how we operated in the past is possibly no longer a viable option.

“Much ingenuity with a little money is vastly more profitable and amusing than much money without ingenuity.” Arnold Bennett

Also tomorrow in the U.S., a coalition of many essential workers at Walmart, Amazon, FedEx, and other retailers are supposedly poised to go on strike to protest their working conditions during this COVID-19 era. Reform-minded, dissenting Uranus is often a prominent factor in strikes or protests. Speaker Mercury also gives workers a chance to voice their grievances or complaints. May 1 “Rent Strikes” are also reportedly planned in some cities across the U.S. on Friday.

Messenger Mercury formally governs the news and, for the last several days, we have also been hearing more and more about possible food shortages, particularly meat and poultry shortages or disruptions (Taurus governs the food supply). Earlier this week, for instance, with Mercury in Taurus exactly square to authoritative Saturn, President Trump signed an executive order (as part of the Defense Production Act) to keep meat plants open, citing that they are ‘critical infrastructure.’ Also yesterday, we heard a bit of positive news about breakthrough results (Mercury-Uranus) concerning a clinical study involving hospitalized COVID-19 patients who responded positively to Remdesivir, an antiviral drug experimentally used for treating the virus. The FDA is now reportedly moving at ‘lightning speed’ (Uranus!) to review data on the drug to hopefully get it officially approved and cleared for treatment for seriously ill Covid-19 patients.

Astrology April 29, 2020: Cancer Moon Opposes Pluto and Jupiter

Cosmic Weather:

“Sometimes I think I need a spare heart to feel all the things I feel.” Sanober Khan

Luna, still in her Waxing phase in protective Cancer, forms an opposition to both transformative Pluto (at 12:01 pm) and abundant Jupiter (at 3:29 pm) today. Both of these planets have been in conjunction with each other since early April.

The more intense Moon-Pluto aspect often allows us to experience our raw emotion, including sampling what has perhaps been buried deep inside the caverns of our subconscious. Accordingly, this is a great time for journaling or psychotherapy as penetrating new insights may bubble up into our conscious awareness potentially having a healing or regenerative impact upon us. On another level, this aspect can also predispose us to want to take more control of various elements in our life, including possibly desiring to purge or phase things out of it that are no longer working. In some instances, we may need to fix, repair, or salvage situations.

Meanwhile, the Moon’s opposition to philosophical Jupiter tends to make us feel more buoyant and optimistic as well as generous and altruistic. It’s excellent for teaching or learning new things. It’s also a positive time for dealing with more large-scale issues or for collaborating with foreign entities.

Luna will also shift into dramatic Leo, later tonight (9:06 pm), and form a First Quarter Square to the Sun in Taurus, tomorrow afternoon. Too, intellectual Mercury is having its annual conjunction with innovative, breakthrough Uranus, tomorrow.

“Self-consciousness kills communication.” Rick Steves

With mental Mercury squaring taskmaster Saturn today (at 1:28 pm) we may feel that it’s a bit harder to get our brilliant thoughts and ideas across to others. Part of the reason for this may be that we tend to be more highly critical or judgmental of ourselves and other people now and that resistance/unacceptance tends to impede the natural flow of things. There may also be more of a desire to want to nail down every last detail in projects as super-cautious Saturn never likes to leave anything to chance.

Generally, Mercury-Saturn aspects are excellent for any endeavors that call for focus or concentration, such as research, planning, budgeting, quality control, or editing. On the shadow side, there can be more of a tendency to worry or to let our fears predominate, which is why we may want to just concern ourselves now with living in the present moment, which is something we can always do something about. We can create in the present, but not in the future.

The Waxing Moon is also in protective Cancer making us more fixated on home, family, and security issues.

Astrology April 26, 2020: Mercury Square Jupiter, Sun Conjunct Uranus

Cosmic Weather:

“Freedom lies in being bold.” Robert Frost

There’s a strong desire for “liberation” today, at least theoretically on paper, as the empowering Sun is making its annual conjunction with freedom-loving Uranus, the official planet of change, and the unexpected. This alliance is occurring in the steadfast sign of Taurus the Bull (money, possessions, and values), however, which, ironically, also tends to be more resistant or reluctant to incorporate change, even if it’s the kind that is self-initiated, as Taurus basically has a hard time letting go or parting with whatever it has tangibly accumulated.

On the plus side, though, we are, seemingly, day by day, gradually learning how to be more resilient, resourceful, and adaptable, in this new era of COVID-19, and today, it looks like we are also going to be receiving some new innovative strategies or “consciousness-raising downloads” on how to not only cope but to actually thrive in this whole new experimental (Uranian) universe. Sun-Uranus generally tends to make us more comfortable with tinkering around with things, copping new approaches, essentially summoning forth our inner Thomas Edison.

Additionally, communicator Mercury is squaring visionary Jupiter today. While this aspect can also inspire us to really reach for the stars, it can sometimes cause us to become overly confident and gloss over important details. So we might want to keep this in mind so we don’t get too far ahead of ourselves.
