Aquarius New Moon/Solar Eclipse introduction + Readings by Sign. On youtube.com/channel/UCeg7QBkHC2-SQfWo9_-QzRA/
At the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 19, 2016, we will see how the processes ignited by the New Moon in Cancer (July 4), affecting our emotional life, especially in regards to family, the mother, and safety, fueled up by the explosive and transformative energy of the 777 (July 7), will gain form and affect our structures, security and relation to figures of authority, on the earthy sign of Capricorn, which is also hosting deep changes as Pluto transits through it.
The cards are showing the interaction of the energies of Cancer and Capricorn. The Queen of Cups connects to Cancer, our feminine side, and the mother, whereas the pentacles cards (King, 4, 8) reaffirm the important presence of the earth element. The Full Moon reveals how the material structures and foundation of our lives allow us to nurture and protect ourselves and those we love. It is time to think about that, and also about the legacy (material, emotional, energetic) we want to leave behind, not only for friends and family, but for humanity as a whole. Align your work with the legacy you intend to build.
Dedicate yourself to what you love and polish up your skills. Protect your projects and tender them as they grow. Be careful not to spend money now with things you don’t need. You might need it later to improve your domestic situation, invest on education or on your project. Take time to take care of yourself and spend time with family, giving special attention to parents and/or children, and protect your resources and your home, both physically and energetically.

The New Moon occurs in conjunction with Venus, giving us a chance to experience a new phase in relation to Venus in Gemini (love, values, finances, and beauty, allied with communication, intellect, trips, exchanges, etc.). Not only that, but Moon/Sun/Venus are part of a grand cross and form a quincunx with Pluto retrograde, adding more power to the New Moon and the Venusian vibes, as well as bringing karmic, issues from the past, and transformational overtones.
Soon after the New Moon, on June 6, we have Venus’s superior solar conjunction, when Venus ceases to be a morning star and disappears from sight for a few weeks, reemerging a few weeks later as an evening star. We will go into a retreat as regards to Venusian’s themes and undergo deep transformation as we get ready to change gears and reemerge ourselves when the evening star does. Our emotional predisposition changes as we turn more inwardly, become more intuitive, emotional, and more attuned to, more productive, and shining more during the nighttime. Those born under evening star Venus will feel more comfortable and in their element until the next inferior conjunction, which happens on March 25, 2017.
This lunar cycle opens up with a Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces and peaks at the Full Moon with a Lunar Eclipse, making it extra special and with a long lasting effect. The Solar Eclipse happens on March 8 at 18-19° of Pisces: “A Master Instructing His Disciple”. The Sabian Symbol activated by the eclipse announces sudden destined encounters between master and pupil, that are life changing. This is the time to find the right teacher, master, guru, counselor, mentor or guide, or to become one. It is also propitious to finding a school, institution, workshop, healing modality, etc. This pertains especially to areas ruled by Pisces/Neptune: spirituality, the metaphysical, the subconscious, the ocean, inspiration, fantasies, dreams, insights, arts (particularly poetry, music and cinema), psychic abilities, and symbology, among others.
In a broader sense, this could be about the coming together of soul mates or people who are meant to teach each other evolution lessons. If this manifests as a new relationship, have in mind that the Piscean energy can create a mist of illusion, magic, and fantasy, and be quite slippery and elusive. Also, beware of false spiritual teachers, guides, and healers. Use your discernment, don’t discard any red flags, and don’t be taken by appearances. This is part of the challenge of dealing with the magical, seductive, sometimes blurred side of the Piscean energy, and part of learning how to recognize what’s right down your alley, particularly when dealing with the master-apprentice relationship and the metaphysical. If you have been deceived or misled before, take advantage of this period to put it behind you once and for all.
Sun and Moon conjunct Chiron and Ceres, adding another layer to the importance of the coming together of Master and disciple, as it can facilitate the healing of old karmic wounds, especially through forgiveness and compassion, in the areas previously discussed, as well as those connected to Ceres: fertility, motherhood, vitality, reaping what we sow. As we heal, we also learn how ot heal others and prepare to become healers ourselves. There is a lot to be done and worked on, as Sun and Moon conjunct Jupiter retrograde and the North Node. There is a lot to be rescued from our past and past lives that will place us right into our destined purpose and path.
What happens during the New Moon window will take us right into the potentials of the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse on March 23 at 3-4° of Libra: “Around A Campfire A Group Of Young People Sit In Spiritual Communion”. The connection we make will place us with kindred spirits, like-minded people, and spiritual groups. That’s when we will see the full results of this teacher, course, modality, etc., that we encounter, allowing us to network and exchange our experience with others. Communication will begin to play an important role then. This can impact and expand your spiritual evolution, social circles, and your career.
A new sense of belonging and being on the right track will be available to us. May you all have fortuitous encounters and discoveries!
At the Full Moon we will be ready to take practical steps based on what we have learned or discovered since the New Moon, as Virgo lends us its practical and grounding features. This process can be channelled and put into action through Virgo’s attributes, such as communication, writing, trips, trading, service, natural medicine, and the Priestess archetype.
The Sabian Symbol for the Moon at Virgo 3-4° is: “Black and white children play together happily”, opposing the Sun at Pisces 3-4°: “Heavy car traffic on a narrow isthmus linking two seashore resorts”. On the Virgo side, we have opposites coming together harmoniously. It is the mingle of the yin and the yang to achieve balance, embracing differences, combining feminine and receptive traits with masculine and proactive ones, mind and intuition, as well as Virgo and Pisces attributes. Virgo can communicate effectively Piscean ideas and inspirations, but we should try not to get caught up or hold on to small details and differences. Virgo can be stubborn and picky whereas Pisces is more about the bigger picture. Yet, it can resort to escapism, fleeing and avoiding. We will feel the pull between those two sides that need to learn to work together.
The Virgo symbol talks about having fun, playing together, reconnecting to childhood flow and ease, finding middle grounds, creating ways of building connections, undoing whatever blocks or prevents connections, and communicating freely. There is a light feel and ease to this process, but at the Piscean end we perceive an excess than can slow down connection and flow, which could be due to too much psychic energy, unconscious material, imagination, and intuition flooding in. The Piscean energy is highlighted by the presence of its ruler, Neptune, plus the Sun, Ceres, and Chiron. We can anticipate a lot of healing of the self, especially through self-healing based on our expanded consciousness and perception. A lot can be revealed through dreams, art, intuition, spiritual messages, and synchronicities. There is a great potential for uncovering what has been preventing you from stepping fully into your purpose and service. Rely on the Virgo energy to stay grounded and use its analytical powers to cope with the revelations provided by Pisces, connect to your inner Priestess and do your own rituals for healing whatever comes up.
When planning trips, leave your schedule and itinerary flexible. Explore various means of transportation, embrace different people, food, language and costumes you might encounter. Trips through the ocean or to the coast are favored. Be open to messages, signs, intuition, dreams, and find practical ways of applying them in your life. Great period for automatic writing.

The Sun-Moon encounter happens at 19-20° of Aquarius this month. This is the opportunity to break free from societal molds, especially by working through deep karmic ties, deep seated emotions and issues. Saturn squares Chiron and Neptune in Pisces, releasing a lot from the unconscious as well as pumping insights into our dreams, that can have a deep impact on us and be easily remembered. You will be able to get to the roots of what has been holding you back. Pluto conjunct Venus squares Uranus conjunct Vesta, igniting issues about family, home, finances, and love, especially in relation to a few specific women in your life. Sun and Moon square Mars conjunct Juno in Scorpio, which in turn form a quincunx with Uranus. Emotions are running high, sparks and tension may be flying all around, and the energetic profile is quite heavy and tense. It will be difficult to walk through it, but it comprises some necessary karmic adjustments at this moment. Jupiter retrograde brings up a lot of energy into rescuing matters from the past, adding more baggage and fuel to the mix. It is conjunct the North Node though, which points to the direction that we should take and lessons to be learned.
The Sabian Symbol activated by the New Moon is: “A large white dove bearing a message”. During this lunar cycle, we will be prone to receiving life changing messages, so be attentive to that. Spiritual light will be pouring down to us, so do your best not to get swamped by your problems, anxiety or low vibrations around you, so you can have some room for receiving the blessings. We are being given the energy needed to rise above what has been holding us back. This is a movement from breaking free from the past towards a place of inner peace. This process is also taking place on the collective level. One of the Aquarius’ features is about finding and defining your individuality so you can break free from the pressure and narrowness of the society, and from there, envision and build a new collective. The theme for this lunar cycle is to break free through deep transformation as we rescue and resolve the past, towards an inner peace that allows us to envision and begin moving into a more peaceful Earth.
The North Node in quincunx with the New Moon points us the direction we are going, activating 22-23° of Virgo: “A lion tamer displays his skills and character”. Agendas of the ego, unconscious impulses, animalistic instincts, uncontrolled emotions, manipulation and control, defensiveness as a result of fear, passive-aggressiveness, etc., should be acknowledged and dealt with. The tamer is not afraid nor loses his temper in the face of adversities. Remain centered on the notion of who you are and recognize you inner strength and your light. This is a process of purification of emotions and motivations so we can become a more enlightened and spiritual being, able to rise above lower desires and immature needs of the ego.
This is a good month to realign or align more deeply with your spiritual support, spiritual family, and spiritual lineages. Jupiter is just by the North Node helping us restore our faith and belief in our strength, reconnecting us to buried jewels, past achievements, self-worth, and our personal power at 21-22° of Virgo: “A royal coat of arms enriched with precious stones”.
As difficult emotions and situations surface or are played out in your life, remember that it is part of a necessary process towards inner peace. If you get overwhelmed or thrown out of balance, remember the image of the white dove bringing in illumination in many forms, and know that there is spiritual support available, as well as the energies that you need.
The lunar cycle we are in opened up with a lot happening in the invisible, spiritual, and inner realms. At the Full Moon, the inner and outer worlds come together, as well as the male and female principles. The time has come to make ourselves visible again after the preparation and transformation we have undergone since the New Moon. The Full Moon in Leo comes to shed light on our self-esteem, confidence, and visibility in the world. This is a good time to strengthen your solar plexus, put yourself out there to be seen, and let yourself shine.
The Moon at 3-4° of Leo activates the following Sabian Symbol: “A formally dressed elderly man stands near trophies he brought back from a hunting expedition”. Gather up all your abilities, resources, accomplishments, prizes, titles, certificates, and put together the best picture of yourself to be presented to others. Organize yourself and polish up websites, business cards, presentations, etc., in order to showcase all that you are.
At the other end, the Sun is at 3-4° of Aquarius: “A Hindu Yogi demonstrates his healing powers”. This is about inner healing that brings about an impact on others. Transform how you see yourself and what you have to contribute to people around you and to society. Change your mind about how you relate to the world and how you perceive yourself contributing and getting back from it. If you are or want to be a healer, this is a great period to have your work expanded and seen, as you gain a greater perspective about being of service and working from a spiritual standpoint.
The energy of Capricorn is highlighted and will support us providing objectivity and practicality. The New Moon took place in this sign in conjunction with transformative Pluto. At the Full Moon, it is Mercury that comes together with Pluto, favoring writing about the past, reconnecting with people, reestablishing contacts, and revisiting places for healing. Mercury turns forward on January 24 reigniting our communication abilities as an ally to launch our improved self. Venus enters Capricorn helping us have a loving and kind outlook on ourselves, our life, our body, and how far we have come. Value what you have and all the foundation and structure you have around you, including your family, rather than focusing on what is lacking.
The New Moon marks the start of a lunar cycle and is the appropriate time for new beginnings. This particular one even more so, for we have Sun and Moon in conjunction with Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, endings and new beginnings. They are in Capricorn, an earth sign, indicating that we will be changing how we view, relate to, and handle our finances, material structures, limitations imposed by reality, our home, our body (eating and exercising habits, taking care of our health), aging, our ancestry, and death. We will be inclined to make important decisions that will affect our life in the long run. This is a good period for launching a new business, making long-term investments, selling and buying real estate, and relocating.
Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn, is in conjunction with Venus in Sagittarius, bringing to the mix the possibility of moving into the line of work that you love, into a home that you love, making transactions with harmony, following your heart when making business decisions, and expanding your finances. There is also a possibility for beginning long-lasting relationships or taking existing ones to the next level, especially with Mars in conjunction with Juno in Scorpio. There is love and passion in the air and a good chance for marriage and destined relationships. Just be attentive when signing contracts (business, real estate, marriage, etc.) since Mercury is retrograde until January 24.
Here is the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon in Capricorn 19-20°: “A hidden choir is singing during a religious service”. This symbol talks about work being done behind the curtains and a lot happening on the spiritual realm that will impact your life positively. Count on spiritual support, be open to receiving messages, and pay attention to subtle signs. Ask for specific spiritual assistance. At this moment they can provide guidance in regards to our practical, material living, as well as bringing soulmates together. A lot of progress can be done during this period.
Lots of blessings will be pouring down to us. Open your heart and enjoy it. Feel a multicolored wave of high frequency light being delivered to you. Rely on music to lift your spirits. This is a magical week and a magical lunar cycle. Don’t doubt when incredible things come your way. Visualize your life being built as a tall, strong cathedral with spiritual light inside and an angelic choir.
On Christmas day we have a Full Moon in Cancer, which is very appropriate for the occasion as it relates to family and emotions. This is great for rekindling or deepening ties to family and friends. The water element is supercharged with the Moon in Cancer making a trine aspect with Neptune in Pisces, and with Lilith retrograde and Juno in Scorpio. We should watch out for an overflow of emotions, which it can bring up a lot of drama, sadness, crying, reminiscing about the past, and remembering the ones that have departed.
We could witness conflicts, open or covert, especially old issues coming up between females or couples. There could be a lot of bickering all around, jealousy, envy, things being said impulsively out of nowhere, and issues that are not conscious or had been forgotten resurfacing. Those themes and dynamics are reinforced by the Full Moon’s Sabian Symbols:
Moon at 3-4° of Cancer: “A cat arguing with a mouse”;
Sun at 3-4° of Capricorn: “A group of people outfitting a large canoe at the start of a journey by water”;
Uranus about to move forward at 16-17° of Aries: “Two dignified spinsters sitting in silence”.
We are all on the same boat as souls having a human experience on Earth. We need to put aside petty differences as we look at the bigger picture. These symbols can relate to the situation in Syria and Iraq, the polarization of interests based on ethnicity, migration on “large canoes” crossing Neptune’s ocean only to meet polarization again in Europe based on religion and nationality. We have disproportional conflicts based on small differences, very old polarization and lack of communication, journey in groups by water as a way of escaping. The silence about it has been broken, and now it is affecting directly or indirectly the entire world.
What happens on the global scale always mirrors somehow the personal and inner levels. Uranus moving forward might break the silence in regards to very old issues in our personal lives. Reevaluate disagreements you have with people and whether they have been blown out of proportion. Check which group or groups you belong to and how you are outfitting them in terms of beliefs, baggage, and travel companions. Uranus provides a push for the journey through water to begin, which is a journey through the realms of emotion, the unconscious, dreams, and spirituality. Explore your inner realms and how they connect to the world of matter and of spirit. Evaluate if old disputes are dead weight you have been carrying around, find ways of breaking the silence and work through problems.
Be aware of the dangers of the high tide of emotions during the Holiday Season, but above all, let it open your heart wide. Enjoy it!
The Full Moon is the time when the energy of the lunar cycle peaks. This one in particular presents a very important and strong peak. It is a very emotional time that can be balanced by Gemini’s mental energy and dexterity. Our minds will be enlightened and we must balance heart and reason in order to take advantage of that.
Nothing will be hidden or withheld from you. You will begin to see things in a different light and perceive what has been overlooked. You will see new ways of doing things and paths you hadn’t considered before. Solutions and ways of surmounting obstacles will come to you.
What used to allure you, won’t anymore. That goes for any area of your life, especially in regards to the path you see yourself on; places, cities, and countries that you consider particularly special and important; and relationships. There is a good potential for light being shed on all of that. You can free yourself from outdated plans and dreams if you want to, and then move forward with a refreshed take on life.
New relationships can begin during this period. Reevaluate your friends and companions. Stay around those who are honest and loyal to you. Let the others go, or don’t share so much of your life with them.
Let your mind and your consciousness soar. Rely on spiritual guidance and protection. Raise your frequency and move forward. As a result, you might end up increasing and improving your social networking. You will feel more comfortable and at the center of your social life, where you naturally belong.
