Current Lunar Cycle

Summer Night Full Moon

The Full Moon illuminates and activates new awareness, especially corresponding to whatever was released with the manifesting wave of New Moon energy two weeks ago. In the coming two weeks look for ways to celebrate and take inspired action, especially from whatever you have embraced or experienced since the New Moon. Be patient with challenges that emerge in the coming days, recognizing that they are also a necessary part of your expansion.

Full Moon Astrology Article: Trusting Your Process

This Full Moon will bring illumination and activate a new sense of clarity, especially regarding any issues, challenges, projects, or opportunities you are currently working through. In the coming two weeks there is also the potential for a new sense of personal empowerment, fueling your inner stability and nurturing your effective use of power in the world.

During the week following the Full Moon, a tremendous amount of energy will be building. This isn’t something to fear. Although you may be experiencing emotional intensity, it’s important to understand that this build-up of energy plays a necessary role in the larger scheme of things to come. The Capricorn Moon will support your ability to move through emotional intensity and navigate circumstances with trust and confidence.

This buildup of energies is leading to the potential for breakthrough. In about a week, the Moon will pass over (transit) the planet Uranus. Uranus offers the power to break free of limitation to pursue greater success. This coming Moon-Uranus conjunction will direct this week’s build up of energy toward something useful.

It is important now for you to trust whatever process was started at the New Moon. Even if things feel emotionally difficult or confusing, there is mental clarity available to help you move forward in life in the most positive way possible. This is a natural clarity that you can rely on. This clear awareness will counteract any emotional confusion or instability that may emerge.

There is a practicality with this Capricorn Moon that will support you if you can trust in the process.

Astrology Pattern: Extra Power for Maximum Results

Full Moon Astrology Chart for July 2015There’s an intense concentration of power contained within our Full Moon Astrology chart.

The two planets most capable of providing maximum power are Mars and Pluto, and they both play key roles in the current Full Moon. With Mars conjunct the Sun, and Pluto conjunct the Moon, this Full Moon is infused with the power of change. On the personal level, be aware that whatever circumstances or issues in your life are requiring maximum effort can be transformed through this potential for change.

Uranus is in a key position to express this buildup of power and support the release of pressure. On the personal level, Uranus can help you achieve maximum potential by providing a breakthrough, supporting the release of old and out-dated patterns in your life.

There is a shadow side to this Full Moon. The result of all of this power build-up could be the experience of mayhem or chaos, especially if the proper expression isn’t understood. The shadow aspect will show up in the tendency to respond to the pressure (stress) from an unconscious or immature emotional reaction. There may be immediate relief in the release of pent-up energy, but the opportunity for constructive expansion will be missed.

Understanding the purpose of this Full Moon astrology pattern is the key to avoiding the chaotic activation that’s possible with the unconscious use of all this power. By accessing mental clarity, this pattern can be used for the directed expression of power to achieve the results you desire.


This is an intense Full Moon. It’s important in the coming days to nurture yourself and stay grounded and emotionally centered. Keep in mind that this build-up of energy must be used constructively or it could contribute to disorder. The shadow side will want to indiscriminately explode as a way to relieve a build-up of emotional pressure.  Use your mental clarity to see where to direct your energy, and this powerful build-up can be directed toward making a positive difference in your life.

The amount of energy available for personal transformation is perfectly aligned now for a breakthrough. The key is to remember to trust the process and move forward with your sights set on your long-term intentions. This isn’t the time to spontaneously combust, just because it satisfies the need for temporary relief. Put your energies toward the future and trust that you’re headed in the right direction.

New Moon Astrology Article: Secrets for Mental Clarity

This Gemini New Moon brings new insight and the potential to see beyond the mere appearance of the world around you. This is a month to hold a high level of curiosity. If you do, you’ll discover new clarity and understandings that help you see the world in new ways.

The Meaning of a Gemini Moon

The New Moon in Gemini supports your desire for discovering new ways to interact with your world. Each new discovery becomes a new type of relationship and a new way to grow and adapt to your surroundings.

Gemini is about learning, and Gemini discoveries lead to new forms of knowledge to be used for understanding the world in which you live. This knowledge is much more than the accumulation of facts. Rather, Gemini knowledge involves the discovery of the patterns and the relationships that underlie the facts.

The Moon always supports your ability to consciously adapt to the present moment, your ever-changing NOW. The special aspect of this Gemini New Moon is to support your mind by adapting, nurturing, and growing your awareness of the moment and your ability to live fully in the present.

A Month of Increased Mental Clarity

New-Moon-June-2015In addition to the Sun and Moon, Mercury and Mars are also in the sign of Gemini. This grouping offers a tremendous amount of support for additional mental clarity.

This coming month is a good time to consider starting any new project where mental acuity and precision are required.  Mars provides the energy, activity, and drive to get things done. Mercury in opposition to Saturn brings an objective approach to life. This extra objectivity (Saturn) sees the world in practical ways. Saturn helps things make more sense, especially if you can see the bigger picture of your circumstances (Saturn in Sagittarius).

The Secret Formula

There’s one last opportunity I would like to discuss concerning this powerful Gemini New Moon energy. It’s related to the position of our 30° Saturn (opposing Mercury) in combination with the exact degree of the New Moon (26° Gemini).

The Sabian archetype for 26° Gemini suggests that there are specific times within a cycle to let go of all but essentials in order see clearly the path ahead. In this way, the New Moon is directly supporting your ability to move forward with minimal baggage.

The Moon is always moving consciousness from the present moment to the future. The Moon doesn’t have a memory of the past. What it does carry are the habits and instincts which are formed in the past and carried forward into the present. Paring down to minimal baggage is a clever way of moving forward with your essential truth, your essence.  Habits that no longer serve you are simply left behind.

The secret formula for this Gemini New Moon lies in using the potential for mental clarity to discover the bare essentials in each moment. Bare essentials in this context are any of the things that represent your essence.  In other words, if you strip away all that is superficial, what is left is your selfhood, your true essence.

Nature gives us a beautiful example of this during the winter months. Frost-covered trees glisten in the sunlight, their leaves long gone. The winter trees and ground are bare, but still hold their vital essence for next year’s spring growth deep within. What is carried forward are only the most basic structuring elements needed for the future.

Your opportunity now is in letting go of all but bare essentials, while holding on to the mental clarity of discovering your true essence in every moment. This discovery of your essence is the most powerful form of Gemini knowledge, and it supports your momentum into the future.
