This Taurus Full Moon is also called the Hunter's Moon in North America as the fall colors wash over the trees and we prepare for the cold winter months. The chart for this Full Moon is very aspect filled and we will have a variety of energies to sort through as we navigate through it. There is a yin and yang to it though, that we can find the balance within the chart, with effort and determination. Read more about the purpose of this Full Moon at Lunar Living Astrology. There is a T-square leading into the Mercury retrograde starting November 6 and also into the Scorpio Solar Eclipse of November 13. We are likely to seek out the safest alternatives as the Moon transits through Taurus. With Mercury transiting out of bounds, just prior to the retrograde motion, we will be feeling more vulnerable. Mars is transiting out of bounds right now, but the feeling is not as vulnerable with Mars. It feels more chaotic and confusing, however. We will just need to keep both feet inbounds to stay on track. If possible, have a little fun to release the tension. Happy Halloween, everyone!

The Libra New Moon should bring some relief after that hard hitting Full Moon last month. We can start to regroup now, and clean up some of the left overs that seemed to hang on for, like, forEVER! Finding balance is an important message with the Libra energies. This New Moon does seem to put quite a bit of emphasis on Chiron, encouraging us to find help for issues and personal problems that plague us. Saturn in Scorpio will have us focusing on restructuring our psychological perspectives as well as our finances and familial legacies. Secrets and taboos may also need to be examined if we find that they are hindering our ability to expand or change. The upcoming Full Moon in Taurus will be two days prior to Halloween, and those energies will splash over into the celebration of the day. Also, we will be experiencing a solar eclipse and lunar eclipse next month. There will be lots to think about as the holiday season approaches.

This particular Harvest Full Moon has very tense aspects that are likely to cause us to feel stressed or, at the very least, frustrated. The plethora of ingresses this week are also adding tension to the mix. Venus will ingress Virgo on October 3, Jupiter will station retrograde on October 4, Mercury and Saturn will ingress Scorpio on October 5, and Mars will ingress Sagittarius on October 7. Obviously, this week is all about change, isn't it? There are some suggestions about ways to deal with all the energies in Lunar Living's article for the Aries Full Moon.

September is in full swing now, and the last vestiges of summer are drawing to a close. Of course, for the southern hemisphere, it is the end of winter. Regardless of our location on the Earth, the Sun is moving closer to the equator with the transitional equinox to occur in a few days when the Sun will begin to transit Libra. As this transition is occurring, we will also begin to experience Saturn's energy in a different sign, Jupiter's retrograde in Gemini, Mars moving into Sagittarius, Venus moving into Virgo and Mercury moving into Scorpio. As the article at Lunar Living explains, we can use the clarity of this New Moon's energy help us slide smoothly into the equinox on September 22nd. After that, the multitude of transitional placements in early October could become a bit overwhelming.

Yes, yes, this is the Blue Moon of 2012. But, as I keep reassuring you, the blue moon carries very little significance over to the astrology portion of the full moon. However, there is a big "to-do" with this moon event in that the feminine receptive of the wedge pattern will push us to a few emotional extremes. Read more about this full blue moon at Lunar Living's site. I don't know about others and how they are dealing with the vibes, but I've already shed a few tears over events that normally I would not be impacted by the outcomes. If this is any indication of how this Moon will be moving through Pisces, I sense I'll be dew-eyed a few more times before it is all said and done.
I like to call the Pisces Full Moon, the beginning of the end of summer since it typically ushers in cooler evenings despite the continuation of the hot summer days. Remember that this full moon, in particular, is a typical "release" moon wherein we need to let go of something so that we can open up room for something new during the next new moon.
