Pisces New Moon - February 21, 2012

As you have probably figured out by now, Aquarius and its jarring influence is now basically behind us.  Neptune has moved into its home turf, so to speak. In modern astrology teachings, Neptune rules over Pisces. We are facing a new frontier that we have not had the pleasure of encountering in the past.  The last time that Neptune was in Pisces was in the mid-1800s. The New Moon in Pisces is forming a conjunction with Neptune and Chiron with an out of sign trine to Saturn retrograde still seemingly stuck on that anaretic 29th degree of Libra. The Lunar Living moon event article addresses this. There is a new sense of calm with this New Moon, but Saturn is doing absolutely nothing to reduce the stressors that we have been sensing this past month. We have two more weeks of this strange energy that we will need to deal with. There is likely to be a whole new set of mixed emotions to try to navigate through. However, the next few weeks are an excellent time to prepare for the Earth Grand Trine between Mars, Jupiter and Pluto. Set your sights on that energy, and most likely, other issues will feel less pressing.

Leo Full Moon - February 7, 2012

The Snow Moon, or occasionally referred to as the Hunger Moon, is usually the Full Moon of Leo when survival seems the most harsh after several months of winter in the Northern regions of the Northern Hemisphere. However, the reality on our round orb known as Earth, there is also a Summer happening on the other side. This is the "opposing universe," so to speak, where the warm rays of the Sun are nurturing and caressing the southern hemisphere, unless there's a shortage of rain that then causes a different form of harsh reality. Lunar Living article explores this Leo Full Moon's paradox from the Saturn "Squat" on the Libra anaretic degree to the approaching Grand Trine of Jupiter, Mars and Pluto. Just gotta love the Aquarius energies that have us reacting like ping-pong balls.
