I often write up the Low-Down Full Moon article while watching TV out of the corner of my eye. But there’s something truly surreal when the article is for the Full Moon in Pisces and the movie is Being There, starring the strange and wonderful Peter Sellers.
Being There (don’t worry — no spoiler alert needed) is about how much our interactions and communication rely heavily on assumptions, projection, interpretation and context. Take away these and what’s left may be mind-blowingly different from what you were expecting.
“Pisces, the fishes: two of them. Perhaps swimming in opposite directions or at right angles to each other. While trying to survive in the demanding world of space and time, many Pisces people feel like they’re swimming in a fast river going upstream, but they would rather surrender to the prevailing current that will carry them downstream to unite with the vast ocean. Over the next month or so, those fishes are likely to feel like they’re pulling you in very different directions.”
There’s always something that seems a little dangerous about Leo. It is, after all, a Fire sign, and Fire can sometimes be destructive, even as it is also be beneficial.
Astrologically, Leo is associated with our sense of self. Sounds wholesome and validating, doesn’t it? And it is…until it isn’t. The two-sided gold coin that is Leo has confidence and creative self-expression on one side, with hubris and self-absorbed drama on the other.
“There’s nothing like a good challenge to make you humble.
Humility and confidence are qualities not often found together in the same sentence. Each appears to be everything that the other is not. Humility is often seen as weak, while self-confidence seems like the ideal armour to protect you against that very weakness.
Yet, when they cross paths they form a powerful combination that can bring out the best in both….”
The Moon (our most personal planetary energy) is wandering out among the transpersonal planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, with Chiron and Saturn thrown in for good measure. On the other side of the chart are all the rest of the personal planets: Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Jupiter as well. More –>
Reach for the stars! This is a time to fly above the atmosphere and set your spirit free! Open your mind to the great possibilities of your time. This is not a time to be trivial, trifling or trapped in your ego. More –>

April 21, 2014 will be the fifth of seven squares between Uranus and Pluto during the current decade. Because Mars and Jupiter are joining the action and creating a “cardinal grand cross,” a lot of people in the astrology world seem to think that this square (i.e., the fifth in the series) is going to be different, perhaps more like what we were expecting — a return of the widespread revolutionary fervor of the 1960s.
Strap yourself in and get ready for a wild ride over the next several weeks! That Cardinal T-square that’s been following us since the beginning of 2014? The one with Jupiter opposite Pluto and Uranus square to both of them? Well, this aspect pattern is turning into a Grand Cross – think of it as a T-square with a serious attitude problem.
Both aspect patterns (the Grand Cross, sometimes also called a Grand Square, and the T-square) hinge on the Uranus-Pluto square. After 4 passes over the last 2 years, and even longer before that leading up to them, are you sick of Uranus-Pluto yet?? Well don’t start planning the farewell party just yet – we still have 3 more passes: Apr.21, Dec.15 and Mar.16.2015.
It has been said that birth is one of the most aggressive, forceful events there is.
When something is born, it is as mysterious and magical and utterly life changing as is death. One minute it’s not there, and the next minute it is. Breathing on its own. An independent entity. Real.
Birth. Changes. Everything.
Once something is born, you have to deal with it. There’s no shoving it back into the womb. Birth is a one-way door. You can’t unring the bell and you can’t unbirth the baby.
Ready or not, here it comes!
