In case you haven’t seen it, here’s something on tomorrow morning’s Solar eclipse–and if it aspects any of your natal placements, there’s something here on what to possibly look for. Have a wonderful eclipse, and stay safe!
This is just a sampling of what comes in Spiral Spectrum‘s Big Dipper Bundle. Designed by Julie Wilder, the package offers Lunar info for, and I quote the material, “space cadets and lunatics”–and that’s said in the best way, with a plethora of information on the meaning behind the phases of the Moon, the signs in relation to the Moon, the Modes and Elements, and more, all of it delivered in succinct and easy-to-understand presentations that every astrologer and fan of astrology will find immensely useful. A great reference tool, and a wonderful gift for anyone who studies the stars and lights!
For Saturday 15 December 2012:
2 AM PST the Capricorn Moon forms the base of a Finger of God with the North Node, apex Earth. This suggests that emotions will translate smoothly into life direction, which will have a direct impact on the material situation. This could be a ‘feel it and it happens’ aspect; or rather, a ‘feel it and it changes our efforts, which impact our material circumstances’. Doesn’t flow as well, but means exactly the same thing. 4 AM PST the Moon sextiles Pallas, infusing the feelings with wisdom (and probably a good dose of patience, too). Noon Pacific time the Moon sextiles Venus in the 29th degree of Scorpio. This stresses relationships and/ or finances, where we are likely to worry there’s something we don’t know about one or the other. The answer to this may actually precede this contact, at around 11 AM PST when the Moon captures Juno at the midpoint of Moon-Venus. This might show us exactly where our real empowerment status and options lie–and the lesson we should take from this is that it’s easy to forget what we know, when something dear (relationships, funds, assets, our Art) comes under stress.
And for Sunday the 16th:
2 AM of the 16th the Aquarian Moon becomes part of a cascade effect, by squaring Saturn, sextiling Mercury, and semi-sextiling Pluto–which arrangement of course catches Merc at the Saturn-Pluto midpoint. The effect may be one where each of us only sees a portion of the chain–one person experiences repression of emotion (Moon sq Saturn) communicates that (Merc) to another, who perceives it as a destructive or deliberately harmful confession (Pluto), for instance, or where transformative emotions (Moon-Pluto) are not communicated to a father-figure or authority (Saturn-Merc) or where those emotions allow one to break the rules (Saturn-Pluto), for another example.

For the 30th:
By 10 AM PDT the Cancer Moon opposes Pluto and both make a Cardinal Grand Cross with the Sun/ Earth axis. Some dark emotions, secrets, hidden matters, or things we’d rather not know come to the surface and nail us neatly to this config with a problem or two. How to resolve this, when everything seems so obvious and unsolvable? Time to come clean in this area–no two ways about it–this will allow an opening up with few repercussions–take the opportunity for a clean slate.
For the 31st:
By 2:30 PM PDT the Cancer Moon trines Mercury, both in Water, our Messenger sadly backward. This makes misunderstanding oh-so-easy, as we are prone to substitute our own emotional reactions for fact. It’s almost impossible to consciously navigate this–so use the intuition, if possible–feel the way through.
And for the 1st of April:
12:30 PM PDT the Leo Moon trines the North Node/ Juno conjunction. The emotions and intuitions are tuned in to our empowerment and our life direction, and though it may seem full steam ahead, we must consider that Merc is just on the verge of direction within days–and that our ideas about gaining personal power and making progress are probably good ones, but that we should hold back until Merc turns around to actually take a step forward.

New Moon in Aries arrives at 7:36 AM PDT at 2 Aries 22. With this NM we may be, in modern lingo, branding ourselves, with the launch party for that brand coming at or near the Superior Conjunction of the Sun and Mercury (27 May). It’s a time to think about ‘I am’, in the sense of who do you want to be?
2:30 PM PDT the Moon quincunxes Mars and semi-sextiles Chiron. The urge to get movin’ is all tangled up in old resentment and hurt, and perhaps a fear that our skills won’t be up to the challenge. It’s a retro Mars, we’re moving in the light of a fresh New Moon–just relax, nothing need be done yet. Anywhere.
4:30 PM PDT the Moon trines the Juno/ North Node conjunction, giving us a huge boost of personal authority, energy, and purpose. Go!

5 AM PST the Gemini Moon trines Mercury, giving us what used to be called, ‘The Gift of Gab’–but whether we are speaking or not, we will be communicating; awareness that we are letting our world and everyone in it know what we think is paramount. There is nothing we can do to censor or control what is made known, perhaps making us feel very vulnerable, and certainly making for the possibility that some of what we’d hoped to be more discreet with will surely become known.
11 AM PST the Moon conjuncts the South Node, drawing us into a session of nostalgia or regret, likely prompted by the flow of memory and information that came with the Moon/ Merc aspect. It may feel, for a bit, just like being there, swamped in memory so acute we forget about the now. Don’t over react, and don’t invest in this memory–the reason we re-live it is because it really is gone.

I recommend the excellent work of Ayala Chen, who offers a free introduction to your Guardian Angel and position on the Tree of Life according to Kabbalistic Astrology
3:30 PM PST the Aries Moon squares Pluto. If we acted out before, we find out why now; ditto for discovering the motives of others. Very negative things may be said or done at this point; it’s not a time for letting others know about your emotional housecleaning, and certainly think twice before severing ties with others–you’re at an extreme feeling point–don’t let that extremity drive you.
Just before 10 PM PST the Moon squares the Sun/ Earth axis. We feel ourselves at odds with our own Purpose and direction. There’s no fixing that–all we can do is recognize that, once again, we’re hitting a ‘feeling extreme’, and are better off not reacting too strongly.
Happy New Year!
4 AM PST of the 1st the Moon trines the North Node. Are we moving in our destined direction at this time? Yes, yes we are. More of consequence occurs right now than we are consciously aware of, but it’s stored in the unconscious (Moon) and concerns our actions and impulses (Fire). We must wait for the big reveal, however
5:30 AM PST the Moon sextiles Venus, prompting gratitude and pleasant interaction (and perhaps reward). An excellent time to talk it out, or act it out!
6 PM Pacific the Moon quincunxes Mars–talk about a feeling roller-coaster! It seems upset, angry, and/ or aggressive feeling is unavoidable, and much as we may successfully handle it at various points in the day, it still pops out at a moment’s notice! Likely flows out as criticism or some ‘harsh accounting’ (Mars in Virgo) Try to minimize damage by getting physically active.
8 PM PST the Aries Moon trines Mercury–actions lead to words, words lead to actions–could result in a Fiery spiral of death, if our Martian energies are still stirred up and pent up! I would recommend something a little daring, a little exciting, and at least somewhat active to work the energy off while minimizing the damage potentials: fire dancing, flaming shots, martial arts practice, lively (political?) debate all fit the bill. Please, no Molotov throwing, verbal or otherwise, fire setting, or BBQ-ing–everything will burn!
