The Pisces Full Moon and Your Power to Choose

The Pisces Full Moon and Your Power to Choose

Our minds and our emotions work in tandem: how we happen to be feeling at the moment when we encounter a situation, person or idea can influence our thoughts about it. At the same time, our thought patterns and belief systems influence how we articulate and manage our emotions; they reflect how much power we believe we have (or do not have) over how we feel. We often have more power of choice in these matters than it seems.

Aquarius Full Moon: Give Yourself Wiggle Room

Imagine you are focused intently on making your car fit into a tight parallel-parking space. You get it partway in, but maybe your approach wasn’t quite right. At a certain point, you realize that going back and forth at the same angle isn’t getting you where you want to go. You need more wiggle room.

You’re familiar with the idea of hubris, yes? It’s that amplified blend of blind, stubborn ego and overreaching that spelled the tragic downfall of many a character in the myths and dramas of Greek antiquity.

Putting (or Keeping) the Spiritual Body in Motion

Right now, the astrology is suggesting it's a perfect time to bring your inner awareness and vision into some tangible, external expression. That is, to harness the energy you feel moving within you by actually doing something with it. You have to claim it through action to "own" it.

Cosmic PMS? Women and Men Ride This Wave

At the risk of appearing to reinforce dismissive stereotypes about women, the following image might help you to get a handle on some of the current astrology, which is still in effect after last night’s Cancer New Moon: the planets seem to be indicating a kind of "cosmic PMS" that you might be noticing in yourself or others.

The King of Hearts Vs. the Inner Critic

Wednesday night at about 11:30 pm EDT, the Sun entered Leo, ushering us into the middle month of summer. This sets the general tone astrologically (and it’s a warm, golden one), but another significant event Saturday is contributing an undercurrent you’ll want to begin working with consciously: Venus stationing retrograde in Virgo.

Gemini New Moon, Looking into the Galactic Core

In recent weeks most attention has been focused on early Gemini, as Mercury stationed direct there several days ago. You may still be noticing the retrograde effect—for some, it’s more palpable in the days and weeks after the retrograde ends. Now late Gemini is the focus.

Cancer Solstice: Summer’s Big Picture

People in this part of the world tend to think of summer as the "free and easy" season, thanks to the amenable weather and memories of childhood summers off. But in all honestly, how often have you over-scheduled and overextended yourself, racing to make the most of summer fun, only to find yourself exhausted and wondering when you’ll get to slow down and enjoy the season?

Two-Stage Solstice

Sunday, June 21, is the longest day of the year here in the Northern Hemisphere. As such, the Sun ingressed the sign Cancer at 12:38 pm (16:38 UTC) EDT Sunday. The Moon then ingressed Virgo a few minutes later. This is an interesting, even spectacular chart, and much in the planetary landscape has changed the past week or so.
