LASER-FOCUSED NEW MOON

New Moon @ 15 Aries 17 April 5, 2019, 4:50am EDT, 1:50am PDT, 8:50am GMT, 7:50pm AEDT Image: “Contemplating Rebirth”, web collage by creative visionary Dana Hunt. We are a bit beyond contemplation, perhaps through that window, rushing toward the waterfall toward a new horizon. Can we be in both places at once? This New Moon suggests we can. This Aries New Moon is like a switch that turns on the light as it waxes toward fullness on the 19th. By then Mercury will finally be out of Pisces and join Chiron in Aries, followed immediately...

It wasn’t until I finished writing this Cosmic News that I tuned into the fact that I had named the July 27, 2018 eclipse as the “Doozy, Druzy Vortex Eclipse.” I was about to use the very same image, which is what nudged my brain cells. Something must be resonating with that powerful total eclipse. Is that true in your experience?...

SUPER MOON ECLIPSE PORTAL

Image: Total Eclipse of January 31, 2018, photo by Cosmic News reader Peggy Lenahan. One year later, here we go again with a supermoon eclipse, taking us to the next level! 2019 has started right out with eclipses, the first subtle solar eclipse on January 6 and now our first (total!) lunar eclipse changes the color and tone of our experience early on in the new year. Sandwiched tightly between Saturn and Pluto, this is a ‘no-nonsense,’ ‘Big Happenings are happening’ opening window into a fast-tracked year. All year, we...

New Moon @ 15 Capricorn 25 January 5, 2019, 8:29pm EST, 5:29pm PST, January 6, 1:29pm GMT, 12:29pm AEDT Image: This image was recently shared by NASA just in time for this fusion of Sun/Moon in rock-loving Capricorn. Four billion miles away, distant planetoid Ultima Thule is a ‘contact binary,’ two small fused lobes that rotate together every 15 hours. New Horizons spacecraft, the one that sent us the fabulous photos of Pluto in 2014, continued further into the Kuiper Belt for this historic remote flyby, sending back photos of...

Full Moon @ 0 Capricorn/Cancer 50 December 22, 2018, 12:50pm EST, 9:50am PST, 5:50pm GMT December 23, 4:50am AEDT Image: White Unicorn, web collage by Dana Hunt. The Unicorn is a wonderful image for the Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp, as it combines the horsy sense of Sagittarius and the archer’s arrow in its single horn, as well as being a magical, mythical beast as is the Capricorn Sea Goat. I love it when a Full Moon lights up a Solstice, like an exclamation point. The Solstices mark the (apparent) northerly and southerly turn-around...

New Moon @ 15 Sagittarius 07 December 6, 2018, 11:20pm PST December 7, 2:20am EST, 7:20am GMT, 6:20pm AEDT Image: Ancient Goddess Gemu resides in Lion Mountain and appears to the people riding a white horse. For this New Moon, perhaps we can see her as a horse goddess aspect of the Sagittarian Archer. Brilliant goddess scholar Max Dashu (of www.suppressedhistories.net) recently shared about Gemu, referencing this website for more of her stories and interesting history. December offers clear breath of fresh motivation and inspiration. Get on...

This Full Moon falls at the intersection of two zodiac signs—cusps, we call them. Such edges where signs overlap offer creative mixtures of zodiac imagery. I’ve played with these from time to time over the years, without making it a formal study. This Full Moon gives an excellent opportunity to overlay imagery and merge...

The new Ceres will be lifted atop the golden dome of the State House at the end of this month. [I have written...

See more of his work on Instagram: william.giese. Take note of new webinar on Venus Retrograde, below. This Full Moon announces the New Venus two days later. Venus retrograde already conjuncts the Sun in Scorpioas she merges invisibly into the light of Sun, while the Full Moon in Taurus is intimately involved with (conjunct) Uranus. This is quite a Full Moon dynamic! And squaring the...

You can find out the story behind her Moonrise painting on her art website. For more about her astrology, visit this link. I especially love this particular Full Moon with Virgo Sun and Pisces Full Moon. Somehow it feels like harp music and angelic song, perhaps sung by nature devas, fairyfolk and, naturally, the mermaids of river and Neptunian seas. Are you tuned in to your natural rhythms? If...

Yet another eclipse doorway invites us to shine brighter. After the total eclipse two weeks ago, we are nudged to continue progress with yet another Lion’s Roar, maybe a bit quieter and less dramatic this time under partial shadow. Still, it depends on how this one catches you and turns you inside out, as eclipses will do! Mercury retrograde (until August 19)...

This sculpture came to me for my 50th birthday. I drew this before sending her off to a new home. It turned out I was about to head out to a new home as well. I came to know her so much more intimately while drawing her, paying close attention and bringing her into expression. “The bright moon congeals the gold liquid, Blue lotus refines jade reality.
