Planetary news this week: Jupiter/Neptune & the Supermoon Eclipse!

Supermoon eclipseVideo for this week here.   There is a lot of buzz and excitement around the lunar eclipse on January 20th-21st (EST) because it’s a Supermoon (tm Richard Nolle), meaning the Moon is at perigee, its closest orbit to Earth.  This means the Moon appears larger (because it is larger and lower in the sky, it will appear to be a red color and is therefore called a Blood Moon).  Astrologer Richard Nolle has connected Supermoon events to intensified weather and geological events such as earthquakes and severe storms.  With the Moon having a stronger effect than usual on the Earth, we can be certain that the effect on us as individuals will also be more powerful.  Eclipses are more intense in the areas in which they are visible, and this eclipse will be particularly powerful for those of us in North and South America.

This Super Full Moon is a total eclipse astronomically, because the Moon will be obscured by the Sun, and this eclipse will last for a very long time – nearly an hour, depending upon your location (visit this website for more details about the eclipse at your particular location).  Astrologically, the eclipse is not as powerful because the lunar nodes are in a different sign from the Sun and Moon and therefore not drawing as much power as if they were in the same sign.

With the Sun in Aquarius opposing the Moon in Leo, questions of our own personal journey (Leo) relative to our transpersonal place in the world (Aquarius) will be highlighted.  Three planets in Capricorn (Saturn, Pluto and Mercury) all ground us to the Earth and ensure that we pay attention to business […]

Planetary news this week: Nurturing, wounding and healing

The predominant planetary influence this week and next centers around our relationship to our bodies.  But not just our relationship to our bodies, our experience of being IN a body and all that this entails:  the connection between the body, mind and spirit; the food that we take in to nourish and nurture ourselves and our relationship with food; the stuck places where old emotional stress has lodged to create an imbalance of energy in the body.

Geeky astrological details:  Chiron is stationary and turns retrograde this week, Uranus trines Ceres, and Saturn trines Ceres next week.   Four other planets are currently retrograde.

As humans we tend to fragment ourselves – depending on the elemental balance of air (intellect), fire (drive), water (emotions) and earth (grounded practicality), we often find ourselves experiencing our lives through just one facet of our personality.  This causes a disconnect that can make us feel out of sorts, and sometimes escalate to illness and mental distress.

The next two weeks could shine a light into areas of our lives where this dissonance may be affecting us, and help us to heal these disconnected places.  Hatha (physical asanas) yoga is a centuries-old tool to integrate the body, the mind, and the energy systems within.  So is Tai Chi and Chi Gung.  But we can also use the tool of mindfulness to turn within and learn more about areas of disconnect which may have been unconscious for years (perfect for the retrograde influence of Mars which inspires us to look back into the past).

Between July 4th and the 10th we may find ourselves feeling dissatisfied and at odds with the world around us.  (Mercury opposite Mars and then square Jupiter) .  Because we will already be attuned […]
