An Otherworldly and Yet Practical First Quarter Moon

moonHenry Seltzer – The First Quarter Moon taking place in the early morning hours of Friday, March 27th, is quite an interesting lunation, in part because it occupies the psychic space between two eclipses. The Sun and Moon in early Aries and Cancer, respectively, also simultaneously aspect Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces, being at the degree that is in the middle of their two degrees. The Aries Sun makes a forming semi-sextile to Neptune and remains trine Saturn within a degree and a half, while the Moon trines Neptune and is inconjunct to Saturn. The Uranus-Pluto square is not triggered by these aspects, although the transformational impact of these two powerhouse planets remains quite potent, since they are still less than half a degree apart, in the wake of the recent perfection of their square, ten days ago on March 16th.

We are definitely caught in the midst of powerfully transformative times, and we all need to step up to the plate and take action in our individual lives if we are to save ourselves and our earthly environment. We benefit when we can recognize that we all make a difference, no matter how remote we might feel from the decisions of governments and corporations that seem to control our very future. We are each immensely influential, emblematic of the entire collective; with each individual act a symbolic one. It really is true, as the NY Times remarked in 2003, that the other super-power on the planet is the power of public opinion.

The New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse occurs today, and it happens at the very last degree of the zodiac. Poised on the precipice of the Second Renaissance, the panorama of majestic rock formations surrounds us.

This month is very important because it marks an end point. A cycle of time where truth and wisdom have been shadowed comes to a close. A new cycle of time that steers us back toward balance and sanity begins at the next New Moon, the New Moon in Aries on April 18, 2015. This is covered in the audio recording overview for the month, which is posted on the homepage of www.oraclereport.com. Continue reading

“The Sun’s eruption with an X-class flare, the strongest since October 24, 2014, during this window of time tells us that it empowered the energetic associated with this degree in the sky. The Sabian symbol for this degree is “fairies (nature spirits) dancing in the setting Sun.”” – L Walker

Catalysts for Change: picky, disregard for others or self, confusion, diving in without looking, control issues, manipulating, staging a performance to mislead, suppressing emotions/instincts/intuition, trying to force things to fit into a structure

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: ” a crowded public marketplace” (human interchange and exchange; self-expression)

Did you feel the X2.2-class solar flare yesterday? It occurred at 12:22 pm ET/4:22 pm UT.

The position of the Moon at the time the Sun bursts out in flare is always significant, but more is highlighted with this one. There was a 28-minute window of time yesterday when Mars and Uranus both were located exactly at 15′ Aries 00″. The Sun’s eruption with an X-class flare, the strongest since October 24, 2014, during this window of time tells us that it empowered the energetic associated with this degree in the sky. The Sabian symbol for this degree is “fairies (nature spirits) dancing in the setting Sun.” What was going on with you at sunset? What were you thinking about or doing? Were you lucky enough to see the sunset? There may be important information or confirmation for you with this. Yesterday’s energy was about being open – open to spirit and open to sharing with others. Intuition was heightened, so we were ready to receive messages. Continue reading

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “a crowded public marketplace” (human interchange and exchange; creative self-expression)

There’s a crowd gathering around the tent of the crystal ball reader in the public marketplace today. Word has it that something is afoot and everyone wants to know what’s happening.

Mars moves to the degree of “a crystal gazer” amidst a slew of energies that are generally unsettling. Much is “loading in” to the field of the future right now (more detail in this month’s audio recording of the overview of the lunar month, available on the Home page of www.oraclereport.com).

In the immediate future, all of the energy is building toward Wednesday’s massive astrological aspects. What develops under this energetic is directly seeded into the future. Continue reading

 “It is best to maintain perspective and not take things to an extreme. Striving for some “ideal” or “ultimate” will box us in and reinforce the chaos, confusion, and congestion elements in effect. Wise owls keep it real.” – L Walker

Balsamic Moon in Sagittarius: release, dream

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Kali

Skill: know when enough is enough

Negative Imprint: road rage, suspicion, guarded, moral posturing, thinking the uncontrollable is controllable, conflict, war, paranoia, trust issues, walls and barriers, turbulence, panic

Positive Imprint: patience, loyalty, compromise, trust, communication, links with the spirit world, insight, effort and reward, guardianship, self-awareness, exchanging with others, inner fulfillment

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “an Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe”

Today’s energetics tend to cause things to become a bit chaotic, congested, and confused. Wise owls strive for calm, cool, and collected.

It helps to understand that a powerful astrological dynamic is in place (the “window of time” I referred to earlier this week). This dynamic comes from Mars’ conjunction with Neptune and the Black Moon opposing both of them.

I will discuss this in more detail in the audio recording scheduled to go up later today because the dynamic will still be in place at the New Moon on Tuesday. This means the imprint will last throughout the upcoming lunar month. So what is happening now is going to unfold through February 17, 2015.

January 2015 Energy Report

jenniferhoffmanThe few times that I have been on roller coasters (I don’t like them very much; they scare me, and I always regret getting on them once the ride starts), I notice that there is a lot of time spent on safety and preparation.  A height check to ensure that participants are tall enough to not fall out, or be thrown out of the seat, the attendant checks every person’s seat restraint, instructions are provided to make sure everyone knows what to do while on the ride, and the ride starts very slowly as it climbs up the first hill. Then in a few harrowing minutes the ride is over. The buildup to January has been slow and at times, the energy may feel like it’s moving slowly, but the ride has begun and we are on it until it comes to a full stop at the end.

Starting with the full moon on January 5, which activates the Uranus/Pluto square, we’re in for a reminder about the ‘power of shared intention’ or the ‘power of the people’. With shared intention and purpose, we are capable of anything, as long as we remember that we are powerful and all have the same source of power. Activation of our power occurs in different ways, sometimes it’s fear, other times it’s pain, or deprivation, loneliness, desperation or that moment when we realize that we’re ‘fed up’ and we’re done. No matter how we arrive at that moment, when we get there we are ready for change and there’s no going back. January may be one of those months. Continue reading

Henry Seltzer ~ A Challenging And Enlightening New Moon

newMoonThe Virgo New Moon, taking place early on Monday morning, is a powerful one, bringing an essentially spiritual quest into up close and personal connection with our more ordinary material pursuits, and providing moments of startling clarity. This is because, as the energy peaks in the first few degrees of this mutable Earth sign, implying new beginnings of a grounded and practical kind, there are also many outer planet connections made to personal planets. The New Moon is opposite to Neptune, while Venus in mid-Leo trines Uranus and squares Saturn and Mars. Meanwhile, Mercury at 17+ degrees of Virgo, near the Sun and Moon, is sextile to Saturn and Mars and opposes Chiron. Mars makes an extremely close conjunction with Saturn, within a sixth of a degree, just at the timing of this New Moon.

Uranus and Saturn have been in close alignment since July, and are still only about a degree and a half apart from a perfect inconjunct, or 150-degree aspect with each other. With this accent of inner planet correspondences, their antithetical collision of archetypal meanings becomes palpable. Saturn represents the limitations and restrictions of earthly arrangements, while the trickster energy of Uranus takes us further and further away from the grounding of the here-and-now, closer to the almost unimaginable heavens for which it is named. While becoming confused and uncertain about our everyday affairs, especially with Neptune so powerfully invoked, we do perceive much more clearly in an intuitional way, even though we might have to close our physical eyes to see this.

Kelley Hunter ~ Faerie Angel Moon

New Moon At 2+ Virgo, August 25, 10:12am EDT, 7:12am PDT, 12:12pm GMD

The Earth upon her celestial spindle winds her ecstasy-producing dance. —Kathleen Rain

Thou remember’st
Since once I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid on a dolphin’s back
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song,
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres
To hear the sea-maid’s music….
—Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Mermaids are the faeries of the sea. With the Sun-Moon opposite Neptune, this is truly a Faerie Moon of sea and land. Subtle energy fields become more delicately tangible, especially when we take time to commune with Nature, dance upon the trees, look for the small, intricate variety of lovely growing things we are given. Nature is a mirror for the spiritual. The Land of Faerie is a gateway. This New Moon is also infused with angelic harmonies, as indicated by its Sabian Symbol image:

Two Guardian Angels Bring Protection

Harps twinkle with invisible starlight, opening the heart, rippling through every cell of our bodies, raising vibrational frequencies. Some of us more than others will find it challenging to ground this energy. This earthy Virgo Moon brings awareness of our precious body, as does its ruler, Mercury, in this sign of Nature’s organic intelligence. In the floral kingdom, with the help of faeries and flower devas, plants imbibe sunlight and micronutrients from soil, alchemically transforming heaven and earth into beauty, form, color, perfume and life-sustaining foods. Some, like orchids, primarily breathe in air and rarified starbeams.

Simone Butler ~ Aquarius Full Moon: Get The Party Started

“We’re bombing Iraq again, the NYPD is terrorizing residents and elephants and rhinos are on the brink of extinction. It’s hard to keep an upbeat attitude when a morning perusal of the news is so distressing. Especially with heavyweight Saturn squaring the Sun and Mercury. Yet there’s also cause for celebration at tomorrow’s Aquarius Full Moon.” S Butler

GetThePartyStartedLionOkay here it is, the most festive full moon of the summer! (Sunday Aug. 10, 11:09 a.m. PDT). The fun-loving Leo Sun lights up the sociable Aquarius Moon all weekend. So why, you may wonder, are you feeling so crotchety or exhausted, and boogeying down is the last thing on your mind? Probably because Saturn has crashed the party. Its square to the Sun and Moon casts a damper on things—though a trine from Uranus is trying its best to keep our spirits up. Also, Mercury is traveling with the Sun in Leo—adding both mental frustration and the possibility of creative solutions to the mix.

Everywhere I turn, people are at their wit’s end about something. They’ve had it with their jobs and are ready to quit. They’re done with mourning a lost love and have finally put their profile up on a dating site. They’re sick to death of a nasty habit and are finally ready to give it up. That’s Saturn—he who slams a door to the outworn past and opens another to a sparkling future. How do you know which door is closing? Just look at where you’re feeling the most pain. That’s where you need to muster the courage to let go. Continue reading
