Full Moon in Libra, 11 April 2017 – Horse shoes and Hand grenades

The Full Moon of 11 April is at 21 degrees Libra and its central motif is the Moon conjunct Jupiter and Moon opposition Uranus.

New Moon in Aries, 28 March 2017 – Rekindled Romances

New Moons are a time of taking initiative and new beginnings. A New Moon emerges from the womb of the dark Moon and there is the sense of uncertainty coupled with possibilities. This is a germinating period of fertile potential, particularly the first two weeks following as the Moon waxes, culminating in action with the…

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Leo, 11 February 2017 – A Cosmic Blessing

February is eclipse season commencing with a penumbral lunar eclipse on 11 February and followed two weeks later by an annular solar eclipse on 26 February.

Full Moon at 22 Gemini is in the communications hub, our sphere of marketing, media, relationships and collaborations.

New Moon Sagittarius, 29 November 2016 – Saints and Svengali’s

New Moons are a time of taking initiative and new beginnings. A New Moon emerges from the womb of the dark Moon and there is the sense of uncertainty coupled with possibilities.

Full Moon in Aries, 16 October 2016 – Lightning Strikes

The Full Moon is a time of culmination, illumination, and release. This is the time to harvest the fruits of your labours, often those efforts set in motion at the time of the New Moon.
