Astrology Article: Riding the Great Piscean Wave

During this month’s New Moon astrology there will be a powerful release of energy carrying a tremendous amount of momentum. The momentum is due to the convergence of several factors, and brings the energy of positive change. This next month presents a bright future, full of optimism and some well-deserved relief from a high level of intensity many have been feeling.

The last two months have carried a level of intensity that many found difficult to navigate. In some cases, it’s been tough to make the necessary adjustments to feel successful. For those who’ve been struggling, a degree of relief is on its way. This break in the intensity will be available during the entire coming Lunar cycle. This is especially true if you can take the opportunity to feel the magnitude of the coming wave of change and just “ride the wave.”

Change and Momentum

The New Moon always brings a wave of change, however this Moon is absolutely unique because of the convergence of several other powerful factors. This month’s New Moon carries the following additional waves of new momentum:

• The New Moon is located in 30 degrees Pisces. (As the last degree of the zodiac it carries the momentum of the entire previous year.)
• Several planets are in New Phase. (There are a total of nine new-phase combinations involving the Sun, Mars, Uranus, and Neptune.)
• The Vernal Equinox. (The new momentum of the now dominate day-force.)
• A Solar Eclipse. (Adds additional energy to the New Moon.)

Those schooled in astrology can work with the specifics of each of these events. However, even if you don’t understand the specifics, you can appreciate the unique convergence and understand the extra support of the fresh start.

The combination of these factors is creating a powerful and pivotal energy source, with enough momentum behind it to sustain a long-term new cycle. The quality of energy supporting this new wave of change is positive in nature and represents your strongest ideals made real and tangible. In other words, this wave brings real change capable of benefiting everyone to some degree.

What’s most important to understand is that this New Moon is offering you the unique opportunity for a fresh start.

Integrating Current Waves of Change

The Spring Equinox always represents a powerful point of change in our yearly cycle, but when combined with the power of a New Moon and Solar Eclipse, along with the planetary power of Venus, Mars, Uranus, Sun, and Mercury all involved in various new phases … All I can say is Wow!

If you’ve been experiencing intensity over the past several weeks, then the news of impending change my bring up fear or discomfort. You might even be saying, “Please, no more change! I need some stability!”

This is a moment to take a breath and realize that you are being carried in a process that’s already begun.

The coming wave of change is all about carrying forward the process of metamorphosis that began with last month’s New Moon. You can feel relief in knowing that the current momentum is being integrated and can carry you forward, as long as you can maintain inner balance and understand the bigger picture.

The silver lining of this New Moon wave of change is that you are in complete control of how you choose to see what’s coming. There’s plenty of support for optimism, curiosity, and perhaps even plain old fun.

Surfing the Wave

The pattern of this New Moon reminds me of the story of the surfer who had been out in the ocean all day and found himself in trouble. He realized he was so far out that he didn’t have the strength to paddle to shore. He felt the breeze stiffen and noticed a shift in the rhythms of the ocean swells. He began to panic. His intuition told him to turn around and look out toward the sea.

He turned around just in time to see the largest wave he had seen all season. He mustered the last bit of strength in his weary body and caught the huge swell with perfect timing. He stayed calm and relaxed, and concentrated on nothing but balance and controlling what he could. He rode the wave all the way to shore. In retrospect, the surfer remembered that massive wave as the most intense, most satisfying and rewarding wave he ever rode.

This story highlights the perfect way to approach this wave of New Moon energy coming your way.

Watch for new opportunities. Both Jupiter and Saturn are working together to support wise choices, and Jupiter is supporting the deeper desires of your Soul as it finds new ways to express itself through your humanity and connection to others. Stay calm and relaxed, and keep your sense of balance. You can even have a little fun, trusting that this wave has the potential to take you exactly where you need to be.

Astrology Pattern

New Moon Astrology Chart for March 2015. by Steven Shroyer, Seattle Astrology.The New Moon is occurring on the very last (30th) degree of the zodiac sign of Pisces. It’s especially potent because this is the last of the sequence of twelve signs, and the next degree initiates a new annual cycle (at 1 degree Aries, also the Vernal Equinox). It’s the equivalent of bringing forward the entire previous year in one moment. In other words, at this New Moon we have an entire year’s worth of momentum condensed into a super potential seed. The 30th degree of Pisces represents the power latent in all seeds and, furthermore, the latency for self-transformation in humankind itself.

To have the New Moon occur at this point is powerful, indeed!

Neptune provides a key piece to the wave of momentum when you realize that Neptune’s energy performs two important functions. Neptune not only dissolves old boundaries, but it also provides a new matrix for successful living with harmony and spiritual principles of unity. The New Moon is continuing to support the Neptunian theme of metamorphosis (change) that began with last month’s (February 28) New Moon.

You can see from the New Moon chart that the planet Neptune sits with seven other planets (including the Moon and Sun). From our vantage point all of these are proceeding at a faster rate of momentum than Neptune. In other words, Neptune is the slowest planet of the eight planets all grouped together. It establishes the intent and foundation for the new energies moving forward.

All of this is also occurring on the Spring (Vernal) Equinox, which is another huge spring board for moving forward as energies shift toward personal development and inspiration.

Mars and Uranus in conjunction are also working together to create an optimistic outlook for inspired action. Breaking free from old, stubborn patterns that aren’t useful anymore can be easily accomplished during this Lunar cycle. This is just one of the opportunities for successful living that you’ll be able to use to your advantage this month.

Celebrating the Vernal Equinox

Spring Equinox is a key aspect of the momentum of this New Moon. On March 20 this year the day and night are of equal length. This is the yearly point when the day-force increases to become of equal strength with the night. Ever since Winter Solstice the day-force has been gaining momentum, and now it has the power to overtake the night-force and dominate for the next six months (until the Fall Equinox).

This yearly point of transition has always been a time for celebration and inspiration. It is a perfect time to set personal intentions for yourself and your growth for the coming year.

Article Summary

This month’s New Moon Astrology provides you the opportunity to relax and stay balanced as a giant wave of momentum takes you to a new level of living and success. Go with the changes which will take place this month. These changes are for your benefit and provide the extra momentum you’ll need to move forward, as well as to release whatever is not useful. Spring is here and it’s time to create your own joy in life as you experience success at new levels.

Acropolis Full Moon Rising. Steven Shroyer's Full Moon Astrology Journal Article.

Article: Two Roads to Success

Our Full Moon astrology allows you to focus on new opportunities, and strategies for success, as we work with the powerful principle of metamorphosis which was initiated at the last New Moon.

(Metamorphosis defined: a profound change in form from one stage to the next. The process of a deep transformation and a new sense of being.)

During the next two weeks circumstances and events hold the possibility of contrast. Experiences for each of us could be expansive, big and dramatic, or in contrast a hard and difficult grind. Most likely you will experience a combination of both, as life moves from expansive growth with ease, to periods where it feels as if you have to grind it out just to keep your head above water.

It’s important to say that both forms of circumstance are offering the opportunities you need at this time for your own experience of metamorphosis. There are two specific astrological patterns creating this contrast. Both are clearly presented in the Full Moon astrology chart.

Pattern #1 Expansion with the Grand Fire Trine

Full Moon Chart March 5, 2015. Steven Shroyer's Full Moon Astrology Journal Article.Looking at the chart, I’ve outlined the first pattern in blue. It’s a grand trine that ties together the three fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius). The main quality of this grand trine lies in its ability to generate power. The type of power being generated is indicated in the planets making up the grand trine. Positive outcomes and super-success can be the norm with this pattern due to the quality of power being generated by these planets within the trine. It’s a unique and complex grouping, as the planets appear in their natural sequence in the Solar System (Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus).

This grand trine is supporting a rapid change at the core level of your being. Whenever both Mars and Venus are together in an astrology chart they work together to expand your horizon and create personal meaning. This can be generally understood as producing circumstances that harmonize the patterns of ’cause and effect’ with Mars supporting cause and Venus supporting effect.

What you can expect during the next two weeks are positive changes you can use to establish yourself in ways that enable you to feel more successful and wiser. Changes may be big or small depending on your particular circumstances but either way, focus on the end result. In other words, focus on the positive growth rather than the seeming significance or size of the circumstances.

Pattern #2 The Full Moon and Saturn’s Gift of Grit

Now looking at the chart again you’ll notice a red triangle referred to as a T-square. The purpose of the T-square is to provide extra help for stick–to–itiveness. Tenacity and perseverance are needed to offset a potential sense of overwhelment. Grit, character, and the courage to see things to the end may be required right now if you are experiencing any form of discouragement or stress. If you can stay aligned and avoid overwhelm during periods of challenge, there is a kind of clarity available that will help you remember the larger pattern of growth.

Having a growth mindset will help you hold to the bigger picture. This Lunar cycle is all about big growth and supporting internal change. We’re calling the process “metamorphosis.” Depending on how the process is showing up for you, there may be some aspects of growth that feel difficult. On the helpful side, there is a definite clarity available to see the larger perspective and then take advantage of the gift of “extra grit” this pattern is providing.

Astrological Summary

It’s unusual to see two patterns interwoven and yet so different. Whenever I encounter this type of divergent or contrasting energy, I always ask, “Why would the Universe, so full of symmetry and balance, provide such different types of patterns for our personal growth?”

The understanding to this question is found in the deeper meaning of the positions of the Sun, Moon, and Saturn.

The Sun in Pisces can be thought of as activating your sense of inner purpose. The Pisces purpose in this pattern offers the skillful use of power through connecting with a larger growth cycle. This can be further understood by the conjunction between the Sun and Neptune, which supports change in the form of metamorphosis.

The Full Moon in Virgo indicates that the skill to utilize the magnitude of available power will require a certain level of grit in the form of determination, courage, and discrimination. Clarity is available to help you see that this is only a temporary situation. There is help available to support the powerful energies actively transforming the core of your being for a higher purpose.

Saturn is the planet that links both of these patterns together. It’s the anchor point of the chart and also offers an anchor point to your experience of reality. Saturn offers the voice of reason during challenging circumstances, saying things aren’t as bad as they look. Saturn also offers the voice of reason during times of expansion, saying not to get too excited about new opportunities, remembering that positive changes still need to be anchored in the real world as they take on a new form.

Article Summary

This month we are all dealing with a large amount of change, fueled by powerful energies that are helping us grow at an unprecedented rate. The ups and downs are temporary and there’s a lot of help available.

Deep and lasting internal changes involving positive growth are often referred to as metamorphosis. The current Lunar month or cycle is a time when lasting metamorphosis is possible and supported. There are two seemingly different patterns available to draw upon during the next two weeks. You may experience some challenging ups and downs, or you may experience big events and super success. Or both.

The most important thing to remember is that you can avoid overwhelm by holding to the big picture. There is help available! You can also anchor positive outcomes and build upon your successes, no matter how big or small. In the coming two weeks a little grit and tenacity will go a long way.

The Age of Aquarius: Has the Quickening Begun?

by Steven Shroyer

The age of Aquarius will last approximately 2160 years. What is yet to be known is when this period will actually begins and the idea that perhaps it already has. This article explores the energies that drive Aquarius so that we can better understand what humankind can expect during the imminent Aquarian age.

The Aquarius Quickening: The Meaning of a Double Aquarian New Moon

Double New Moon Period
January 20, 2015 to February 18, 2015

The Double Aquarian New Moon is a rare astrological event. Astrological records don’t go back far enough to find the last double Aquarian New Moon with a second New Moon conjunction with Neptune in Pisces.

The significance of the second New Moon conjunction is enhanced by Neptune’s relationship to Pisces. Neptune is the natural ruler of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius is transitioning from the Age of Pisces. Also significant, is the precession of equinox, which occurs opposite the direction of the Sun. The Sun is moving from Aquarius to Pisces to Aries while the precession of equinox is moving from Aries to Pisces to Aquarius. While the precession of equinox is an interesting phenomenon, this article will only focus on the Aquarian energies that are being expressed.

A Double New Moon encompasses the entire Lunar cycle occurring in a single zodiac sign which condenses the power of a single sign into a Lunar cycle creating organic growth. The development of our brains and consciousness is intimately tied the Lunar cycle through this same organic process.

The significance of this organic process lies in the understanding that each zodiac sign has 30 degrees. Each degree is its own chapter and tells an entire story that functions as an important archetype to explain the flow of energy.

The 1° of Aquarius starts an important new energy process. It begins with a new principle emerging with the need to unfold and develop, next it expresses what’s been learned, followed by a period where these new principles are incorporated into strategies for success, and then new ways to cooperate with others before maturation of the initial process is completed which ends at 30°. In Sabian Astrology this referred to as the six-fold realm of maturity. It is closely linked to the cyclic numerology of six. These cyclic principles of unfolding can be broken down into the following.

1. Emerge
2. Develop
3. Express
4. Incorporate
5. Cooperate
6. Mature

The completion of this six-fold process, is the equivalent of the Lunar cycle consuming, or using, the energy of a complete zodiac sign and can be one of the most powerful periods of time during an one’s entire lifetime.

The key to using this information lies in understanding the quickening process of Aquarius. It is very likely that the zodiac month of Aquarius is in fact the quickening event to initiate the Age of Aquarius. We are not exactly sure when this event will take place, however it is an unprecedented event that will help usher in the Age of Aquarius.

The Energy Signature of Aquarius

Aquarius-water-bearerTo better understand the energy signature of Aquarius and the opportunity it offers, we can turn to its traditional symbol, the water bearer. Even though Aquarius is an air sign, it is associated with the flow of water that represents the  downward flow of spiritual energy. The energy flows as light from the cosmos into our consciousness.

Another important aspect to understanding Aquarian energy is the significance of Uranus which is the ruler of Aquarius. Uranus is involved in the receiving of non-linear information which is often referred to as a download. This “download” is the water symbol depicted as the flowing water archetype of Aquarius. The “air” in Aquarius represents the quickening of consciousness and therefore the need to discipline the mind in order maximize the Aquarian ability to organize and contribute through skill and management.

The story of Aquarius begins with “pure energy” flowing from above. It’s power is vitalizing and expresses itself through the planetary ruler for Aquarius which is Uranus. Uranus functions through the principle of “creative change” and therefore quickens whatever it touches by transforming it into the individual in order to create something unique.

The Aquarian Story

Through Aquarian energy, the individual is “vitalized” by universal values. These are the expansive archetypes of the cosmos which the individual allows to flow directly into their consciousness from the universe.

This flow is the process known by many names: innovation, brilliance, inspiration, inner guidance, and the higher-Self. Aquarian energy is so powerful that unless this quickening and vitalizing flow of energy has an adequate outlet for expression, then the shadow side emerges becoming erratic, volatile, and unstable.

Aquarian energy is meant to be experienced as the internal evolutionary urge that exists as one’s inspired contribution to Self and others. Coming to terms with the responsibility and the management required to make an evolutionary difference in the world requires discipline, even if it has to take the form of revolutionary action.

Once discipline is applied to this Aquarian energy, then organization and management begins to transform the individual and whatever the individual has chosen to manage. As a result, consciousness itself is then quickened to a higher evolutionary level of inspiration that can be experienced as a higher purpose in the world.

Success is the by-product of this quickening and transformative process. Success permeates one’s life through a new and natural reorientation based on the evolutionary changes taking place in one’s consciousness.

Discipline can then transform into mental efficiency and becomes a new type of illumination which is rooted in new meaning and significance. The final result of this vitalizing and quickening process prepares us for the possibility of a metamorphosis through creative change that operates at the transpersonal level.

Living life beyond the personal level (transpersonal) carries the responsibility of understanding that your personal involvement does make a difference, and has significance that is beyond your life span, or immediate results. The final result is a complete cycle of creative change, or metamorphosis, to higher level of planetary contribution. The ability to experience any level of significant creative change is a important cycle in the evolution of consciousness. This is the deeper meaning of the “Age of Aquarius.”

The Zodiac sign of Aquarius ends with the positive embodiment of “creative change” and the possibility for metamorphosis, but the actual process of metamorphosis is governed by Neptune, the ruler of Pisces.

Aquarian energy flows into Pisces with Neptune acting as the activator of Piscean energy. Aquarian energy paves the way by vitalizing energies that when disciplined by the mind becomes the quality of brilliance and inspiration that become easily expressed. The deeper challenge is learning to express this transpersonal energy with increased permanency. The mind, once trained and disciplined, is able to execute the strategy of management and organization that becomes a preferred avenue for expressing Aquarian energies.

Aquarius comes to final completion at 30° and is considered a metamorphosis because the organic nature of the Moon is capable of consuming an entire energy ray of a zodiac sign, which in our case starts at 1° Aquarius and finishes at 30° Aquarius. In other words, what was started at last months New Moon was completed in its entirety during one Lunar cycle. The Double New Moon in Aquarius is the quickening of a lifetime and benefits those that utilize the energy in the Age of Aquarius.

Current Lunar Cycle

The New Moon releases a new wave of available potential that sets the overall theme for the entire month. To experience your fullest potential in the coming month, allow this energy to guide you while adjusting to changing circumstances. This month’s Lunar Cycle will offer a new tool set that creates momentum for energizing your life’s purpose.


Astrology Article: Metamorphosis

Our New Moon is the second New Moon in Aquarius this month. This is a special “Second Aquarius New Moon” that holds a special significance. In fact, consider this to be a once in a lifetime Lunar month. Events occurring between Feb 18th and Mar 20th will have the potential to access energy that can create “pure success”. This is the perfect time to use this energy to take your life to the next level.

The 2015 Aquarius Double New Moon

It is a rare phenomenon to have two New Moons back-to-back in a single zodiac sign, however it is even more rare to have two New Moons in Aquarius on consecutive New Moons. It is so rare, that this will most likely be the only time in your life that this usual occurrence will occur. You can read more about this in the article titled; “The Age of Aquarius: Has the Quickening Begun?

The power behind this unique opportunity centers on how the energy of an entire zodiac sign can be condensed and then expressed as a growth cycle. However, this isn’t any ordinary growth cycle because it has the potential to launch into a personal metamorphosis.

I’m using the term “metamorphosis” because this New Moon also promises a transformation when used correctly. The biggest challenge you will face with the upcoming second Aquarian New Moon, is how to take full advantage of the opportunities presented. This is not the time to make adjustments, but a time to make changes so that a metamorphosis can take place.

How the Hidden Principle of Cultivation Works

The Moon has a special relationship with what I like to refer to as “organic growth.” Hence, the Moon is associated with farming, nurturing, development cycles and patterns, and how our consciousness adapts to changing environments.

The principle that’s operating along with the Moon is often obscured, however it is how this “organic growth” can be nurtured and cultivated. What’s available for cultivation is not just an aspect of a sign, Rather, the entire zodiac sign, from 1° Aquarius to 30° Aquarius is available, and this precisely what is so rare. Harvesting a complete Lunar cycle with condensed Aquarius energy is a powerful tool in creating the momentum needed for metamorphosis. This is the change that can create transformation.

This once in a lifetime event started with last month’s New Moon theme of “Embodying Vitality for Success”. Vitality was needed to creatively cultivate, store, and embody the success needed to maximize the potential of this New Moon. It is now clear why vitality was such an important ingredient. It is this vitality that uses your own life-force that is needed in order for a meaningful change and transformation to occur.

The Quickening of a 30°Aquarius New Moon

Double Aquarian New Moon Chart for Feb 18, 2015Our New Moon is currently at 30° Aquarius and starts a new Lunar cycle that then immediately moves into the sign of Pisces. It is important to note that the New Moon is conjunct Neptune in Pisces. With Neptune, Chiron, Venus, and Mars all in Pisces, this energy is magnifying all Piscean energies, providing a new level and pattern that we can harness.

Pay attention to the first week after the New Moon. Depending on the nature of your birth chart and the astrological house where the New Moon sits in your chart, there may be additional tools to cultivate.

Another thing to note is Uranus, the planetary ruler of Aquarius. This relationship means that Aquarius is easily activated by Uranus and the familiar themes of Uranus include success through freedom, sharp intuition, the intellect, inspiration, energized ideals, and creative change. These are additional tools to pull from to access the catalysts for change and transformation.

Most importantly, what you can expect is a positive change, growth, abundance, All forms of change to create the type of success you have dreamed of. Remember to use the tools available to you to work hard and actualize your own potential. It is truly the change of a lifetime.


As discussed, we are entering a New Moon period where activating and actualizing your potential for success will be easiest if you recognize the tools available to you that take advantage of the available opportunities. This is a time to use Aquarian energy and think outside of the box. It is freedom and brilliance combined. Accepting practical advice won’t be easy to come by this month, because Piscean energy paints with broad strokes and dissolves what isn’t working. It is a time to follow new urges, and to create new patterns around you that inspire. The new you has the ability to operate as someone who has experienced a metamorphosis and is now re-designed for successful living.

Seattle Astrology Full Moon Article for Feb 2015

Full Moon Astrology Article: A Time to Expand Your Horizon

Our Full Moon astrology this month is absolutely spectacular. Whenever the Full Moon occurs on one of the four “cross-quarter” degrees of the zodiac (15° Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, or Scorpio) you can expect to experience one of the most powerful Moons of the entire year.

Before I describe the potential impact the Full Moon can bring, it would be good to review the last New Moon theme of “embodying vitality for success.” This New Moon theme established an important direction toward which previous Lunar energies have been steadily building. (For more explanation see last month’s New Moon Astrology article.) Now that we have reached the Leo Full Moon these energies have matured in a spectacular manner.

Impact of the Cross Quarter

There are four major and creative release points in the zodiac. Since ancient times these energy release points have been understood as both sacred and powerful. These energy points have such a strong and distinct energy signature that they are often referred to as living entities. They are also the four archangels of the book of Revelations: the Bull (Taurus 15°), the Lion (Leo 15°), the Phoenix (Scorpio 15°), and the Angel (Aquarius 15°).

With the Full Moon at Leo 15° and the Sun at Aquarius 15° you can expect the two next weeks to be rich in various experiences that will impact you for a long time. These are experiences capable of having a significant impact on your life and are what I like to refer to as “peak experiences.”

During the next two weeks, starting with this week’s Full Moon, there is the opportunity to “over-indulge” in something that will have a long term impact on your life. Just how these energies manifest in your particular circumstance will be individual in nature. They can become extremely beneficial, especially if you understand the power behind this Full Moon.

I specifically used the phrase “over-indulge” to make a point. In this case, “over-indulging” is neither good or bad, but a recognition of the possibility to expand your horizon through a natural tendency to go overboard with enthusiasm. Respect is required for a beneficial outcome. Carelessness represents the shadow side and a possible detrimental outcome.

For example, over-indulging in work discipline could be exactly what’s needed to meet a crucial deadline to advance your career, whereas participating in a marathon without proper preparation could result in a serious injury. Your success will depend on how you respect the power that’s available and use your “over-indulge” in a beneficial way.

To offer a personal example: In my natal astrology chart the Full Moon occurs in the 12th house of unconscious patterns, karma, and/or spiritual work. To take advantage of this opportunity I plan to “over-indulge” in working toward the completion of a karmic, personal growth project I’ve been putting off for a long time. (For support in understanding your specific potential, schedule a personal astrology reading.)

Throughout this article I’ve been using the term “over-indulge” in a non-traditional way. It’s important to remember that you have a choice in how you respond to these tendencies. Faced with the “bigness” of the potentials, there may be a tendency to over-indulge in the shadow sides, leading to fear and paranoia. In contrast, the expanded nature of over-indulging will be to embrace positive aspects such as effort, courage, and new learning.

You have the opportunity now to use your imagination and creativity. See the next two weeks as a special time to set a new course in life, or perhaps to solidify something that you treasure and are already working toward. The opportunities are both rare and powerful. Use this natural time to “over-indulge” in the most positive manner possible and your results will be spectacular.

Astrology Pattern

Full Moon Chart for Feb 2015It’s rare for the Full Moon to conjunct Jupiter, and it’s extremely rare for the Full Moon to conjunct Jupiter at exactly 15° Leo (the archetype of Lion archangel).

Uranus is perfectly positioned at Aries 14° to add power in the form of “electric fire.” Aries is a fire sign with fire coming in the form of high voltage, as observed in the quality of lightening quickness, and powerful potentials. When energized by Uranus in the trine (60° aspect), this fire-y energy is contributing to the Full Moon potential.

Mercury is retrograde and close enough to the Sun to be pulled into this incredible astrology pattern. Mercury’s energy works quite well with both Jupiter and Uranus. In this configuration Mercury will allow you to work with long-established patterns, either to clear them away, or by reinforcing them through decision making and clear thinking.

The combination of these unique potentials is creating the “perfect storm.” Understanding this perfect storm concept is crucial to your success in the next two weeks. So much of such a good thing could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity or cure, or it could leave you crumpled on the side of life’s highway.

In and of itself the astrology pattern isn’t negative or positive, just powerful. Plan to move forward with confidence, clarity, and a sense of special opportunity and you will be able to this Full Moon potential for spectacular success.


The next two weeks have the potential to be a game changer.

February’s Full Moon is poised to change your life in a positive way. It’s a time for acceleration (a well-positioned Uranus) and a powerful release of life’s energies in your favor. Respect your natural limits, make a clear decision, and align with your inspiration.

Schedule a personal reading to maximize your potential. When scheduling, book a “Cross of Dharma reading” and I will automatically include your personalized Full Moon opportunity to move forward in life with confidence and power.

It is my deepest privilege to share these thoughts with you.

Astrology Article: Embrace Your Vitality for Success

Our New Moon in Aquarius shifts the focus from last month’s Capricorn energies to Aquarian energies that are full of noble ideas and individual excellence.

The combination of planets in Capricorn last month focused the astrology pattern toward prosperity with the specific qualities of personal empowerment. With the shift of planets now in Aquarius, it’s time bring the larger prosperity energies into focus with the intent to embody them in the real world.

With the Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mercury all in Aquarius, there’s a window this month for manifesting at a personal level. It’s important to feel the prosperity that was activated with the last New Moon. Manifesting this month will require some extra work on your part to take this to the next level. Bringing prosperity potential and your manifesting intentions together for results will depend on your self-assertiveness, confidence, and appreciation.

Your vitality and life-force will play a big factor in your success this month. Manifesting for success will require four main aspects that you need to incorporate or embody by using your own inner strength , chi or and life-force.

  • Self-Assertiveness: Stand up and be true to yourself. Assert yourself through focus, inner strength, and your efforts.
  • Appreciation: Open yourself up to new opportunities. Appreciate and recognize each opportunity that comes your way.
  • Vitalizing Energies: Honor and respect the natural energies that provide vitality. Your vitality sparks your creative power. Feel it, nurture it, and expand it as opportunities present themselves.
  • Productive Activity: It’s important this month to realize that your own individual effort is a key to success. Use your vitality and self-assertiveness coupled with appreciation to take advantage of opportunities that come your way.

Success is available to you if you can hold a high level of appreciation for your own unique situation. Nurture your vital energies and move forward in life with confidence and positive activity.

Astrology Pattern

New Moon Astrology Chart for January 2015The power of this New Moon Chart lies in the shift of energies from Capricorn to Aquarius. Last New Moon we experienced a stellium (planetary group) in Capricorn. Most of those planets have now progressed into Aquarius. The power supporting the larger group (Capricorn) has shifted now to individual management of energies (Aquarius).

Reinforcing this pattern is the fact that over the next two weeks the Moon will be passing over and making conjunctions with the majority of these planets before the coming Full Moon. This strong pattern reinforces the impact of the New Moon energies throughout the month.

Especially influential in this New Moon Astrology chart is the position of Jupiter in opposition to Venus and Mercury. It represents a beacon of hope and success if you can recognize and appreciate (Jupiter oppose Venus in Aquarius) how your own vitality (Mercury oppose Jupiter in Leo) is a key to your success.


Appreciation of your opportunities will ignite your capacity to embody your own prosperity and manifest what you need to fulfill your destiny. Nurture your vitality and feel it flowing into your activities to assert what you want to create in the world. This is the month to take charge and manifest for success.

It is my deepest privilege to share these thoughts with you.
Have a wonderful month,

Astrology Article: Recognizing Your Prosperity

Our Full Moon astrology for the beginning of 2015 has a very positive tone. The chart carries the feeling of prosperity in combination with an attitude of helping others. For those of you looking for a fresh start, our 15 degree Capricorn Moon is conjunct Pluto, which is a strong indicator that 2015 will be nothing like 2014.

The astrological pattern I’m most excited about is connected with Uranus. Uranus is opening up an increased ability to see the bigger picture of what this year might mean for you. Its position will help you gauge and plan your progress without rushing. Uranus will enable you to move into new ventures with the insight of a larger context.

It’s important to look ahead and contemplate the idea of personal prosperity. There are strong indicators for prosperity, however with Mars, Venus, and Mercury all in Aquarius your personal prosperity is connected to a larger context. It doesn’t occur in a vacuum.

To access prosperity potentials, ask yourself the following two questions:

• How will my personal prosperity contribute to the success of those within my circle of influence?
• How will my decisions affect the next generation?

The main point of these questions is to recognize that your prosperity is tied to others.
The hidden message of the Full Moon is to focus on the big picture and share the good that will be coming your way this year.

Astrology Pattern

Jan 2015 Full Moon Astrology ChartAn astrological pattern worth mentioning involves the planet Saturn as it forms a T-square with Mars (offering practical insights into your desire for more) and Jupiter in Leo (expanding your personal wealth and capacity for sharing).

Saturn adds a sense of group responsibility to the reality of having more than you need. This sense of having “more” as an indicator of prosperity, is also coupled with the idea of sharing with those you care about.

Uranus is also forming a T-square to the Sun and a Moon/Pluto conjunction. The power associated with this pattern is not only self-empowering, but indicates the possibility of a positive future based on freedom as you expand into new territories and success.

The overall astrological pattern is very positive and indicates a fantastic year ahead.


Opportunities for success and prosperity will be the norm this year if you keep your focus on moving forward and taking care of those you care about, especially with the idea of providing for the generations to come.

This Full Moon can be used as used as an indicator of a fantastic year ahead. Happy New Year!
