Image: #10 Pond: last sheen of ice melting, mist rising, sun rays penetrating. Photo by author. “Never, says the gamekeeper Hagrid, irritably, “try an’ get a straight answer out of a centaur. Ruddy stargazers. Not interested in anythin’ closer than the moon.” —J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone A Taurus New Moon is all about grounding, deeply and firmly, in our bodies and on Earth. We’ve been feeling the waters washing under the bridge for just about the whole month of April, as heart-centered Venus and shamanic centaur Chiron have...

The Centaur and the Mermaid reflect April’s ongoing close conjunction of Chiron and Venus in Pisces, as Venus turns from retrograde to direct on the 15th. Chariklo, the name of an astronomical Centaur Object, like Chiron, became his wife when she shapeshifted from a mermaid into a female centaur. What kind of shapeshifting in your life best serves LOVE? Majestic Jupiter...

NEW MOON in 7 Aries 37 March 27, 2017, 10:57pm EDT, 7:57pm PDT, March 28, 2017, 2:57am GMT, 1:57pm AEDT Image: Red Rose photo. Did I take this photo at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, on Peaks Island, Maine, at Dunbarton Oaks in Washington DC’s Georgetown? Or did you sent it to me? Let me know if you did. Red rose radiance is perfect for Venus and this New Moon in fiery Aries. This New Moon comes two days after a New Venus. A “New Venus” is when our next door planetary neighbor makes its closest approach to Earth in its 584-day Venus cycle. The Heart Goddess is conjunct the...

FULL MOON at 22 Pisces-VIRGO 13 March 12, 2017, 10:54am EDT, 7:54am PDT, March 13, 2:54am GMT, 1:54am AEDT Image: Lake Como in the late afternoon ©by Jan Sandman, seen on the cover of her extraordinary new book: White Stones, Bones, and Mist: Authentic Movement and Living Prayer.

INSPIRATION & CALL TO ACTION

NEW MOON at 8 PISCES 12 FEBRUARY 26 at 9:58AM EST, 6:58AM PST, 14:58 GMT, MARCH 1 at 1:58AM AEDT Image: “Inspiration,” oil painting by author, with images for Eris. These contrasting images show both the Pisces and Aries dimensions of this potent solar eclipse. The Eris sketch was a first take for this dwarf planet in my new Planetary Gods & Goddesses Coloring Book. It is fun to see how it resonates with the Xena poster. The final illustration is very similar. Dwarf planet Eris, discovered in 2005, was first nicknamed Xena after the TV character, a name that conveys its...

GENIUS NEW MOON

NEW MOON at 8 AQUARIUS 15 January 27, 7:07pm EST, 4:07pm PST, January 28, 12:07am GMT, 11:07am AEDT Image: Cosmic Message by author— a recent, spontaneous, unfinished piece compelled by an urgent need to paint. It started with the word COSMIC, then morphed. It does rather suggest this particular new moon, not that I consider it a work of genius by any means. Nertyrewrtyrewrtyuiytreswsasdf….!!!! Yes, you read that right—my computer was channeling some cosmic message that can’t be decoded with the rational mind. So appropriate for this New Moon! Basically what was in my mind...
