To become who you are – New Moon in Scorpio

New Moon Forecast is an astrological report from 28.10. to 25.11.2019

The time of Scorpio is traditionally a time of transformation and letting go, it’s a time of silence, turning inwards and diving deep. Look at the nature, it shows you how. Just like that the leaves fall and rot. All the pretty flowers and colourful plants – decorations of nature – fade, wither and perish. Now it is time for darker tones, days get shorter and light decreases. Everything that is not necessary just shrivels and life forces are directed inwards, to the roots under ground.  

Uranus the planet of sudden moves, surprising changes, discharge and revolution is in opposition with New Moon. This saucy force of renewal is like a lightning bolt, charged and unpredictable, but at the same time like a breath of extremely fresh air that wipes all the dust and cobwebs away. In other words this New Moon in Scorpio is like a brave and rebel freedom fighter who will not tolerate any kind of restrictions over genuine self-expression. The quality of time positively screams let me be who I am, what ever that is. And for heavens sake if someone tries to interfere or hamper. There is no stopping this ball lightning who just wants to shine its own light.

This Scorpio New Moon spiked with Uranus is pretty straightforward, intensive, charged and delicately tuned into the inner realms. Chiron, the archetype of a Wounded Healer is in sensitive contact with New Moon, and is triggering all those hurtful experiences when our will was offended, our creativity was insulted or our emotions and needs were belittled. That part in ourself that in some point of life ended up feeling stupid and unworthy, that part that isn’t sure if they even have a right to exist, well that part has now had enough and is not going to apologise anymore, not even ask anyone’s  permission.

Even if modern astrology sees Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, as a ruler of Scorpio. its original ruler in traditional astrology is the Warrior God Mars. Energy, assertiveness, aggression and spunk are all traits of Mars and right now, in the chart of New Moon, Mars is the most challengingly situated planet. Restricting Saturn and dominating Pluto with a South Node of the Moon that represents our past all have Mars in their grip. In its worse this might represent a situation where there are power struggless, control and supress, and everything just waits for an explosion. We should not forget Neptune with it’s etheric and boundless quality who is also part of this mess bringing confusion and willingness to escape an open conflict even if it means sacrificing oneself.

On the other hand, at its best Saturn can also mean determination, steadfastness and commitments to things that really matter. Saturn may bring an ability to make longterm plans and work hard for them, just like Pluto can destroy that which has become too rigid and dull to serve us anymore. At this time so many of us has been experiencing collapsing of old structures, and when old programmings unravel and all that what we thought was a permanent part of ourself is breaking down one can momentarily feel very empty and uncertain like there’s nothing solid under your feet. But nothing can stay empty that long. If we dare to trust and surrender, there comes a time when we can focus our energies to something that is more in line with what is true and real to us now. Not what we once were or what someone would like us to be.

This is rather radical time for letting everything go, letting the past die and stay in that apparently empty space between death and a new beginning. Nature shows you the way. Plain and ascetic forms, all the shades of grey and if it’s not dark yet it soon will be. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Everything is exatly as it should be. It’s a Scorpio time, and in all it’s unscrupulousness and absoluteness this is precisely what we need right now.

Main themes of the month: 

letting go, getting rid of, death of old forms, emptiness, darkness, rebellion, renewal, authentic self, passion, turning inwards, strengthening of the spirit, being focused on one’s own things, deep emotions and needs, dedication, headstrongness, secession, unaffectedness

Wounded Lover – New Moon in Libra

New Moon Forecast is an astrological report from 28.9. to 27.10.2019

New Moon in Libra takes us back to relationships, unless we’ve already been there all the time. Exceptionally many New Moons have activated some area of relationships this year. We are there again, among relations, social life, partnership, friendship, affairs and love because New Moon is in Libra, the most relationship oriented sign of the Zodiac. With Libra, its ruling planet Venus, represents harmony, beauty, love, co-operation, alliances, sharing and joining. And the meaning of Venus is also emphasized because of its strong but slightly distressed position in the chart of the New Moon

Every sign of the Zodiac has it’s own pair. It might even be more accurate to talk about six sign pairs than twelve individual signs, because the opposite signs always represent the different polarities of the same thing and together they form a whole, much like a coin with two sides. For example Libra, who pursues peace, harmony and collaboration, and in its nature is considerate, pleasing and often ends up compromising ones own needs in order to avoid confrontation needs Aries’ self-centeredness, self-willed and headstrong qualities as a counterbalance. It would be ideal if these two opposite qualities were balanced in our lives. Then we would avoid losing ourselves to others (often imagined) needs and expectations or on the other side wouldn’t end up being the despot who always wants to do things in their own way and who only cares about their own benefit.

Sometimes, when this ”what I want – what you want” is distorted in ourselves, other side domineering with the expense of the other, life tries to help us strengthen the weaker side. Right now we are in such place, balance must be restored.

Libra New Moon is loosely in conjunct with Aries’ ruler Mars, which in itself brings some sternness, vigor and spunk to always benign and pleasing Libra. (Remember that when I talk about star-signs I never mean people who have that sign prominent in their horoscope. I always talk about them as an archetypal quality that we all have in some measure.) We also have Chiron opposing Sun and Moon, and that pretty much is the most important thing in this New Moon Chart. We’ve talked about Chiron a lot in our previous New Moon Forecasts, but as it is in so important role here, let’s summarise its theme a bit more.

Chiron, whom we often describe as the Wounded Healer, represents our wounds, hurts, uncertainties and low self-esteem. In our personal Natal Chart it shows the part in us that we might call the Achilles Heal. Chiron is such a multidimensional and deep archetype so that even when it also can tell much about our traumas, it also is the inner wise, the inner teacher and the healer or therapist in us. Chiron being in opposition with the New Moon activates our hurts and fears in relationships. It can show us our uncertainty, fear of being rejected or not lovable enough, even when there’s no any real reason for that in our current situation. The wounds are the wounds from the past that has to be seen in order to heal and let go. It is not possible to let go of something that we are not aware of holding on. So the best thing that can happen here is that the old patterns activate and force us to see what is in there. And this is the best possible time to make us uncomfortably aware of what’s going on inside of ourselves so that we would be motivated and ready for change. The time of New Moon always gives us a possibility for new beginning. We can choose something else, we can choose to find new ways.

The ruler of the New Moon, now when the New Moon is in Libra, is Venus and there’s a lot of pressure going on around her. Venus is in its own sign together with Mercury, which might give new insights and open up new possibilities for communication.  But it’s also in a challenging contact with Moon Nodes (the past and the future) and gets quite a heavy pressure from intensive and transformational Pluto and Saturn that represents demands and limitations. At its best this can be a time to see and be freed of negative programmings and models of action related to self-love, receiving, and one’s own worth, but there’s also sugar sweet Neptune who may lead us astray to fall into the old trap of self-deception or escapist patterns. But it seems we’re in a place where no amount of sugar coating will be of any help. We need to see and confront things as they are, and when we see what doesn’t support love and well-being, that’s what we need to let go.

It’s important to remember that none of the astrological constellations can make anything happen. Astrology is a mirror that reflects what is, it does not create any situations or make destinies. That’s why these collective stellar happenings mean a bit different things to different people. For some this might mean inner revelations and finetuning, for example like a situation where it would be a good idea to start learning to ask and receive, and not always be the one who’s okay with everything and who never thinks about what they want. For some other it might mean a time, when we need to finally take responsibility for our own life and see and talk about all the hurtful stuff that has been wiped under the carpet for years and kept silent about it. In any case it’s time to see what’s hurting your heart and what needs to be done with it. The time is now, but you decide what and how.

Main themes of the month: 

relationships, the balance between giving and receiving, no more compromise, old hurts activating in love, wounded self-esteem, to see one’s own worth, ”what you want – what I want”, loosing one’s self into pleasing others, own needs, courage to ask, transformative love, couple’s counceling, healed heart

Magic of Intention – New Moon in Virgo

New Moon Forecast is an astrological report from 30.8. to 27.9.2019

In the Zodiac Virgo represents the skill of specialization. Virgo in us knows how to separate the wheat from the chaff, how to scrutinise, be critical and not only see the fault in everything, but also know what there is to do to make everything better. In many ways Virgo is the sign of a healer. She knows how to mend and improve. Sometimes this can lead to constant critisism and dissatisfaction, with twisted concept of perfection. Then life starts to be one never ending project to try to be better, learn more, be healthier, eat cleaner and so on. When we can’t see the value of being human and beauty of imperfection, the Virgo in us has become distorted and as an antidote we need a big dose of compassion, gentleness, leniency and update to our misconception of comparison based idea of perfection.

This New Moon in Virgo is definitely pure and focused since all the personal planets are in this analytical, practical and rational sign. And all of them are neatly side by side like pearls in a string. In astrology this is called a stellium, in other words there is a stellium when at least three planets are together in close proximity at the same place of the Zodiac. Now we have six planets in the beginning of Virgo: Mercury, Juno, Moon, Sun, Mars and Venus.

This time is perfect for everything that has something to do with organising, planning, cleaning, meticulous and detailed work that needs concentrating. This Virgo galore might direct your attention to some specific area of life that needs mending, healing, improving or revitalising. If you are familiar with astrology you might want to check the house in your natal chart that this Virgo stellium is located in. It will show you the things that most urgently need your focus and care.

In the chart of the New Moon there is such a lovely trine from invigorating Uranus to Sun and Moon. This might be the time when all that is needed to get things moving into the right direction is to see things as they are. Just looking at things with honest and critical (but non-judgmental) eyes may be enough to make the change happen in the most natural way.

The sign of the Virgo is often associated with health and wellbeing, and especially to problems in the gut or stomach area. Because asteroid Ceres, that represents nutrition, unconditional love and a fear of abandonment, is in a very intensive contact with Sun and Moon, this may be the time that issues with food, eating, concept of health, body image, loving and accepting oneself may get into the surface. This may be the time for healing insights and deep understanding. True healing and change for the better can be gained by listening and appreciating oneself, not by getting new restrictions and making new rules and trying to follow them.

Relationships and matters of heart are still very much on display, but with a different tone than in the beginning of August when New Moon was in Leo. Virgo is basically unselfish, considerate and focused of serving. The sign of Virgo is not that focused on relationships than so many other signs, it’s normally more concerned about things than people. But this time we have a very interesting combination in the chart of the New Moon. Both male-female pairs are in conjunction, so the union of the masculine and feminine is strongly emphasised. There is the Father archetype Sun (yang) and Mother archetype Moon (yin) together with the most masculine Inner Warrior Mars (yang) and the archetypal Woman Venus (yin) all in conjunct with Juno, the asteroind of marriage and soulmates. With all these planets there is also an androgynous Mercury, the messenger of Gods. And this heavenly lot is located in the beginning of the sign of the Virgo.

Depending on the situation and persons involved this very well might mean some sort of a peak experience  in the relationship. Virgo is the sign of the polishing touch and achievement of perfection. So at this time it might not only be something good but quite fantastic. In some other scenario this might indicate a union of the inner male and female. When these two basic energies are combined in the harmonious way it starts to manifest also in many different visible ways. Feminine in us is the part that represents our values, all that what is dear and important to us. Feminine is the magnetic force that attracts everythin we love and value (if we believe we are worth it!). Masculine is the active energy that goes and does and gets what the feminine in us wants. When these two forces are in balance it shows as a very natural and creative flow that makes things happen in the most fulfilling way. And it will make our life feel so satisfying that it really doesn’t matter if we are in a relationship or not.

Because the New Moon is always quite a magical time of new beginnings, this is a very good time to make new plans and direct your energy to all that you want to achieve. Take some time to yourself and make a New Moon ritual that feels right and meaningful for you. In that ritual examine carefully your life and yourself.

What is the most important thing to you in your life? To you as an individual who can live your live in a purposeful and meaningful way. If you could get one of your dreams fulfilled before you die, what would you choose that to be? What in your everyday life supports this goal and what is on it’s way? Think, analyse, evaluate and determinate, then make a concrete plan of action. If you want something and are ready to commit yourself to it by changing your habits or something in your everyday life, you can get it. Harness this special Virgo New Moon energy by creating an important and clear intention and then focus on it in the most practical way. If you truly  want something, start now.

Main themes of the month: 

specializing, concentrating, focus, everyday life, wellbeing, health, nutrition, humanity, practicality,habits, life style, cosmic marriage, relationship between feminine and masculine, commitment, intetion, wish of the heart, solution focused action, healing, mending, organizing, cleaning, clarity, renewal, new beginnings

Surf the Wave – New Moon in Leo

New Moon Forecast is an astrological report from 1.8. to 29.8.2019

The New Moon of August is not only flamboyant and pompous, but also loving, warmhearted, benevolent and sincere. New Moon is conjoined with Venus, the planet of balance, harmony, beauty and values. It is also one of the most important indicators of relationships and social life. Therefore invigorating and activating energies of New Moon are mostly directed towards our love life, value system and finding a balance there where it’s been compromised.

Creative self-expression is the most essential thing being represented by the sign of Leo, along with one’s heart energy and own path. Leo is all about following your own heart, passion and desire, creating your own destiny, charing creative talent with others (not as a part of a group though, but without compromises, exactly the way that feels right in your heart). The archetypal Leo that lives in all of us is a Star, Diva, Creator, Royalty and the one that stands out of the crowd for their own uniqueness, personal charm and creativity. At it’s best Leo is warm, brilliant, cordial, authentic and childlike, and we better not talk about what it can be at it’s worst, because of all the signs of the Zodiac Leo is the one that wants to turn their face towards the sun and insist that shadows or anything unpleasant doesn’t even exist, not in their life at least. And if someone says otherwise, it’s just them being jealous.

Uranus, dynamic and pulsing wildly the energy of reform, is in a very intensive contact with the Sun, Moon and Venus. This energy is an unpredictable and sudden but pushing strongly forward, which is a nice change after past months that have kept our focus in the past for so long. Almost all summer we have been forced to face unfinished things that we had left behind and thought they would stay there. All the retrograde planets, eclipses, Pluto and Saturn on the South Node of the Moon that represents our past lives and karma have taken care of this. Mercury retrograde has been like a cherry on top on this ancient cake that we have been munching these past weeks. But now Mercury has stationed direct and with a help of Uranus this means that things are starting finally to move forward, obstacles and hindrances are fading away and a big gust of cosmic wind may help us to take a huge leap ahead. And since Uranus can not be predicted nor controlled it’s best to take as steady position on a surfboard as possible, let the wave take you where it wants to go, and enjoy the ride. If you could see things from the larger perspective you would know that it’s taking yout to the best possible direction, but it demands wisdom, trust and ability to let go. If you are able to do that, this energy wave can thrust you immensely forward and even so that you can feel the joy of moving forward in your every cell.

Mercury that represents communication, words, thinking and mind has the most challenging location at the chart of the New Moon. Since it’s just ending it’s retrograde phase it’s in a so called ”station” mode and especially emphatic at these times. Also laborious and demanding Saturn along with intensive and destructive Pluto are both opposing it putting Mercury under a very heavy influence. For some this might have something to do with contracts, responsibilities or other burdens that are not yet quite dealt with. These things can not be avoided or bypassed, trying to do that would only add unnecessary anxiety or fear, and only way to be free is to face the situation and take care of everything that needs to be taken care of with meticulousness and caution.

There’s a complex aspect figure on the chart of the New Moon called The Finger of God or YOD. It points to conjoined Mars and Juno. Juno is an asteroid of unions, partnerships, marriage and craving to experience a deep and meaningful relation with someone special. Mars represents energy, aggression, sexuality, assertiveness and action. These two are in Leo aspected by Pluto and Neptune in the most confusing and abrading ways.  This configuration confirms the relationship theme of the whole chart of the New Moon bringing their own muddy undertone to the quality of time. It might be that everything in your love life or work relations isn’t quite what it seems or what it ”should be”. There’s a big risk to misstep in self-deception and refuse to see the truth, because the need to keep mental images of someone intact is stronger than the will to be honest with oneself. Depending on the person and the situation this may be just a passing drawback that will only strengthen the mutual bond when things get cleared out together, or it can be a good old double-dealing where someone didn’t mean to keep their promises in the beginning with but instead used emotive sweet talk just to manipulate or get what they wanted in purely selfish basis.

Luckily the energy of this Leo Moon is so radiant and high with self-esteem that if you happened to find yourself in such a situation, the recovery would be easy enough. Just get out of the sinkhole, shake the mud off of your hem, straighten up your posture and correct your crown, and then plunge towards all that wonderful and fun stuff that’s totally your own and makes your heart glow with such joy that no untruthful second-rate boo could ever make you feel that way.

Main themes of the month: 

creative self-expression, parth of the heart, love, relationships, marriage, harmony, balance, cordiality, benevolence, generosity, sudden changes, going forward, renewals, surprising incidents, taking care of responsibilities from the past, keeping one’s promises, being released from old by taking responsibility, brave beginnings in relationships, confusion and vagueness especially in relationships with men

Confines and compassion – New Moon in Cancer

New Moon Forecast is an astrological report from 2.7. to 31.7.2019

July starts off strong when with the New Moon, we get a Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer. Cancer is an archetype similar to Moominmamma, caring, warm, emotional but also tough leader full of initiative power. The sign of crab is such an interesting and multidimensional in it’s nature, but sometimes misunderstood as merely moody. Cancer, ruled by the Moon itself, seems to manifest the many phases of the Moon including always changing emotional life. Cancer represents both the Inner Child within everyone of us that needs safety and care, and also the nurturing Mother.

However this New Moon seems to highlight the strict and controlling side of Cancer. We’ve been floating in Neptune’s realms for many moons now so this is exactly what we need; seriousness, strictness, rules, structures, long-time plans and sticking to the them. Summer holiday full of leisure? Think again, this is a time to get ourselves together, evaluate the situation, define the desired goal and all what it takes to reach it. The New Moon’s energy at the moment is stiff, serious, realistic and driving but demanding. There’s a straightforward and stringent tone in it. Being truthful, even if it hurts, is so important at this time that it can’t be emphasized enough.

At it’s essence this Cancer New Moon is like a loving but rigorous mother demanding us to finally start taking responsibility. Procrastination or trying to postpone things we see as unpleasant can’t go on anymore. When avoiding things isn’t working and we are forced to face the reality something finally starts to happen for real. The anxiety beneath the surface starts to wear off once we start to face the truth of the situation and take action.

In the chart of the New Moon there’s an aspect formulation called the God’s Fist or Thor’s Hammer, you can choose your favourite, because that’s where the freedom of choice ends. Like their names, a fist and a hammer, it is strong and tough representing an energy that has its roots in the past and its nature is the result of the choices made long ago. We’re not victims of any mystical destiny or the puppets of astrological constellations. Instead the choices we made or decided not to make are now knocking on the door demanding for attention. The fist or hammer is pointing at Mercury which is just beginning it’s retrograde period in Leo making this aspect especially interesting. Mercury represents everything to do with words, mind, thinking, communication, logistics, siblings and short trips. Mercury in retrograde is known for that time when a lot of misunderstandings and delays happen, and every other humour demanding little incidents that challenge the every day life.

This Mercury retrograde period is especially noteworthy because it is between two eclipses and it’s so strongly underlined in the chart of this New Moon. Mercury in Leo is a traditional “Teacher’s Mercury”, creative, self-confident, a bit loud and not afraid of stating the truths of how everything should be done to be done correctly and what in general is the best for everyone. At the moment Mercury is between Juno (the asteroid of partnership, marriage and unions) and Mars (the planet that represents raw energy, aggression and straightforward action). Mars together with Mercury is quite a power couple shouting the things other people might think but not dare to say out loud. Truths are vocalised in the name of honesty, and sometimes it can be refreshing to be uncharacteristically open and straight, and give valuable information to others that makes possible to change things, but often times it’s just ego driven arguing and a need to be right. This is still a great combination, because mind gets extra boost of courage and straightforwardness, especially when the words come out of the pure heart. But if the talking is done by the ego suffering from the sense of low self-worth, it can lead to power struggles and cause huge dishevel with long time effects.

There’s always a certain special charge in the times of eclipses, and especially highly sensitive people may experience many different effects and sensations from insomnia to over excitement and nervousness or total exhaustion without any explanation. That leads us to the core of the message of this Solar Eclipse. It’s all about confines, one’s own limits, care, having enough strength and responsibility issues. If there is something fundamentally wrong with these things, life will show us what is the matter. If it’s been a mystery before, it will not stay unclear much longer what things, situations and people left you empty and halfhearted. It is your own duty to take care of your boundaries and do what needs to be done in order to make others respect those boundaries too. Channel your inner Cancer in it’s full power and become a loving but strict mother or at least your very own Mary Poppins and start taking good care of yourself. It does not mean pampering yourself to rotten (even though that is much needed too at times), but instead give yourself time and space to truly listen what is important to you and your well being and then give yourself that. Fulfill your needs and take care of yourself with such love and devotion that you’ve always wanted other people to give you.

This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.


Main themes of the month: 

getting serious, realities of life, decisions, truthfulness, honesty, growing up, determination, culmination point, not going back, structures, responsibilities, home, family, parenthood, trustworthiness, protecting what’s important, confines, limits, care, taking responsibility of one’s own happiness, need and fulfilling them

Love Letters from Gods – New Moon in Gemini

New Moon Forecast is an astrological report from 3.6. to 1.7.2019

Cosmic vibes in June are quite twofold, to say the least. Actually, there are three very different themes in the chart of Gemini New Moon, and it fully depends on your birthchart how these three motifs manifest in your life. Collective themes always appear in the most individual ways in lives of different people, but this time this is more apparent than normally.

Those of us who have something in about 19 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries or Libra are the ones being pressed harder than others. Some burdens, perhaps old fears from the past or some unfinished responsibilities are demanding attention and causing stress. The other lot, the ones who have 12 to 22 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces or Virgo represented in their natal chart, are like floating with a big hot air balloon, far above the boring and mundane life with their humongous plans and too many irons in the fire. The last but not the least is the third group who have something in their birthchart around 20 degrees of Taurus, Pisces or Scorpio. They seem to be especially in favour of the gods at the moment. It’s very likely that they will receive some unexpected bounty like happiness in relationships, love, improvement of self-worth, wealth or a lovely new beginning. These cosmic gifts, what ever form they take, are meant to be long-standing blessings that will improve life and bring more stability and wellbeing.

South Node, a symbol for past experiences and ”karmic saldo” is still in Capricorn with Pluto and Saturn, like they all have been for a while. They direct our attention to the practical side of life. In what shape are the structures of your life? Are they built metaphorically with steady bricks or sticks and straws, like those silly little piglets did, and then the Big Bad Wolf came and blew their houses away. This is a wonderful time to figure out how strong the foundation of your life is. You might find some crevices on perfectly good looking constructions, or it may be that you get to face some outlived restrictions or beliefs that digs the ground under your feet. To see that may be heavy and frustrating, it can make you feel shame or think you’re powerless and depressed, but giving up isn’t an option. You might find that when you’ve spent enough time in the pit, you’ve gained such strength, authority and determination that you are so much more mature and powerful than you ever were before. Then you can’t but think of it all as a very valuable stage of your growth.

This New Moon in Gemini is like a forever young Peter Pan (who’s lost his shadow), Tinker Bell, Lost Boys and the whole NeverNeverLand all wrapped together in one packet. Mercury that represents mind, thinking and endless questions is in Gemini with New Moon in opposition with Jupiter, the planet of independence, limitless opportunities, foreign realms (both inward and outward) and adventure. This is a very optimistic, risk loving, inflated and pompous combination. All those mentioned above are in a intensive aspect to fantasy planet Neptune, who is sprinkling unrealistic promises, delusions and sensitivity like a sugary fairy dust all over this dreamy set. This could mean that something quite fascinating is in the making, absolutely. Planets can’t tell if the story ends in disappointment and tears or wonderful success. If you’ve been strictly honest with yourself and been willing to see things as they are, without even one beautifying and distorting Instagram filter, then there’s a good chance to experience something real and beautiful (just remember not to overestimate your resources, time, money etc.), but it’s also good to remember that there might be some pretty rainbow coloured soap bubbles that are ready to be burst. But that can only happen to something that was never real in the first place. Surely you want to know the truth, even if it gets a bit of a soap water into your eyes in the process.

The loveliest thing in the chart of the New Moon is something called the minor grand trine. It also has Neptune involved, but here it is in such a harmonious aspects that it will probably manifest in the best possible way. Neptune in Pisces is in a soft aspect with love planet Venus in sensual Taurus. Saturn brings trustworthiness and stability with deep, passionate and intensive Pluto. The Moon Nodes are also involved here in this pretty design, so the issue here might be something that originates from times long past. Pay check from your past life or perhaps the true love from days of yore. Now is the right time to indulge in romanticism and high hopes. Don’t only wait for the best, but expect the most wonderful miracle. New Moon in Gemini is like Hermes the messenger of gods, with his winged sandals. He’s a humorous prankster and unpredictable trickster, but he also delivered letters between all worlds. What kind of mail you think he’s bringing to you?

Plans with Wings – New Moon in Taurus

New Moon Forecast is an astrological report from 5.5. to 2.6.2019

The New Moon of May is born in sensual, earthy and calm Taurus, a sign which is ruled by loving Venus. Taurus Moon is typically a time to concentrate all things delicious, material and concrete. It’s a time to relish and focus on all the miracles happening in the nature that gently caress your senses. It’s a time to put your hands into dirt and work at the garden till the sun goes down and you are happily knackered.  Or to spend extra to get some fancy eatables to have a barbecue feast at the backyard with your friends and family. All that easygoing, enjoyable and harmonious Taurus stuff that everybody loves. And that’s why it’s somewhat confusing that everything else on the New Moon chart seems to be pointing into completely opposite direction.

Because Taurus is a sign ruled by Venus, one would expect it’s calm, gentle and harmonious quality to be strongly emphasized during this time. Instead it seems to be more about Mars. The ruler of the New Moon (Venus) is in impulsive and feisty Aries, the sign ruled by fiery Mars, and in conjunct with Vesta, the asteroid of inner flame and passionate devotion. Also every single even slightly interesting aspect in the chart of the New Moon seems to be involving Mars, making it more and more meaningful at the moment. We already had a New Moon in Aries in April, so it’s a bit puzzling why this Taurus Moon, which should be much more placid and composed, seems to be repeating the same(ish) lesson. Besides of Mars, Pluto and Saturn who have just begun their retrograde phases and dwelling on the South Node, are the ones giving the shots. And that suits them just fine, since they both love to be in charge, and as if that’s not enough, they both have a tight grip on Mars, like they’re forcing it to face something essential.

New Moon is always about new beginnings in a form or another, and creative but practical Taurus is a master of matter and form, it feels like this time is pushing us out of our comfort zone, to dare to begin. Both Pluto and Saturn are harassing Mars from a very quirky aspect. It’s like they’re reminding us to go forward, always forward, and leave everything that has happened behind, because it doesn’t exist anymore unless we choose to carry it around in our head. Whatever happened in the past, does not have to define our present or affect to our future. No matter what’ you’ve been through let it go, get up and go on. It’s time to empty the emotional backpack of all the hurt, bitterness and disappointment, because if your bag is full of memories of the past, there isn’t any room in there for new possibilities and exhilarating succeeding.

There’s also very interesting t-cross in the chart of the New Moon. Jupiter that’s often connected to good fortune and opportunities is opposite Mars the Action, and Neptune that represents visions, spirituality and oneness, is in an intensive square to both Mars and Jupiter. This may manifest in many ways, depending on how much awareness there is involved, but at it’s best this is about courage to hear the inner call, to follow your heart and proceed with making dreams reality. Transform your crazy fantasy into a practical plan and work hard to fulfill it step by step. During a time like this ideas don’t just get wings but they may grow roots and start sprouting. As optimistic and expanding Jupiter is in opposition with Mars in inventive Gemini it might be a bit foolhardy and risky combination, but when the foundation is well built and plans have been simmering to the point of being overcooked, this might just be the invigorating and encouraging wave of energy that pushes the perfectly ready ship off of the harbour and the adventure may begin.

Along with these exhilarating energies there’s something very heavy and karmic, if I may say so. Pluto the King of the Underworld and Saturn the Lord of Karma are retrograding together in Capricorn on the South Node that represents the ”karmic saldo” and all the experiences and programmings from our past. This exceptionally emphatic combination lasts a long time and is especially meaningful for those who have something important (like Sun, Moon, Ascendant, Midheaven, Mercury, Venus, Mars etc.) in their natal chart at 20 to 28 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries or Libra.

The things we’ve not been able to confront before are arising from our subconscious and are taking a physical form, so that we could finally take the bull by the horns and be liberated from everything we’ve been avoiding all our life. That which has to change can not be run away from anymore. It’s finally possible to see things as they are. Saturn here is helping us to see and accept the limitations we’ve created and to realise how we’ve put ourselves in dire straits. Very practical attitude is always helpful with Saturn. Take care of your duties, conquer the tasks you’ve postponed, take responsibility, priorise, focus, work hard and grow up. Pluto is here to help us dredge our inner depths and confront a few ancient sea monsters that might be lurking there in the dark. When you’re not afraid of it anymore you may harness it’s strength or get rid of it’s influence. It’s all about a kind of emotional detox: purify, relinquish, unleash, let go and be freed.

Main themes of the month: 

enthusiasm, self-confidence, courage to take risks, making one’s dreams come true, practicality, letting go, forgiveness, facing one’s fears, realities, accepting the truth, growing up, getting serious, detoxing, purification, finding the right direction, getting a grip of oneself, inner pressure, manifesting unconscious physically, ”no pain, no gain”

Courage to Love – New Moon in Aries

New Moon Forecast is an astrological report from 5.4. – 4.5.2019

The birth of a New Moon in Aries is like a lazy old band that’s been playing gooey and slightly out of tune slow dances way too long, suddenly gets a boost and starts blasting energetic marches causing bafflement in the tired and bit drunken crowd. Even though there’s still three planets in Pisces (Mercury, Neptune and Venus), we’re slowly creeping away from the vague Pisces time, towards perky, active and life sprouting spring.

That elusive and dreamy, yet incredibly sensitive and romantic Pisces energy gets it’s final peak for now on at Wednesday 10th of April when the planet of earthly love (Venus) joins the planet of universal and divine love (Neptune). Depending on the situation and person this might signify angel choirs singing while your loved one gets down on one knee at the most sentimental way, or on the other hand it might imply your readiness to see through your self-delusions and start loving yourself so much that you are willing to get rid of your tiresome role of a martyr and saviour that you finally start dabbling your shiny mermaid tail to swim at high speed to much clearer waters. Then there probably are some other alternatives to experience this time too, but that’s left to be seen.

Mercury is leaving this time of surreal thinking behind and moves to Aries on 17th of April. There it will quite happily cut corners and jump into hasty conclusions. This is a time for swift decisions, impulsiveness, impatience and bluntness in communication and that might surprise even them, who don’t normally identify with that type of behaviour. Venus moves from Pisces to Aries on 20th of April and along that romance is about to get some speedy ride. Willingness to go bravely forward, even if there are emotional risks involved, may be easier than in a long time. Adrenaline flows in Aries times (testosterone might be high too), so it’s all about going straight to the point, no games, no plays, no strategies, thank you very much. Everything should be how it seems and all situations should have a simple and quick solution. Control-Alt-Delete.

Some buts might get on the way though. South Node of the Moon that represents past experiences, is having two stern hard house guests. Pluto, that symbolises irrational fears, power, manipulation and all the gloomy bugbears in our inner dark corners, is there with Saturn, that represents restrictions, rules, obstacles and control. They might get opposite on your way to carefree, flowery fields of new beginnigs. This time might lift to the surface some things from the past that you need to face and take care of before moving on. More likely than that, they are old beliefs and programmings, that your past experiences made you digest and think as they are truth. Before you weight your head down, become discouraged and give up your dreams and plans, be make sure the things you think are on the way are real and not just some old echoes form the past. If it truly is something concrete that is restricting your freedom (like small children, way too late tax return or imprisonment), just face the situation just as it is, without unnecessary incendiary interpretations, be practical and do what need to be done in order to still be able to start something new in your life that makes life feel exciting and worth living for.

If you spend too long digging in your starting point you might accidentally cave a grave. Or at least so deep hole that it’s not that easy to get up from there any time soon. It really is quite a strong confrontation in the air at the moment between enthusiastic and eager Aries and those fears and suspicions that are holding New Moon in their tight grip. This just might be one of those situations where you can’t go around the obstacle but instead you have to go through. No matter how scared you might be, saddle the horse and hop on.

Relationship karma activation

Now she sings, now she sobs. Life.

Bought this gorgeous Celestite last week as a (one of the many) birthday present pour moi. Love this angel stone so much. But to keep things real I’d like to add WHERE DO THESE FEELINGS COME AND WHERE CAN I PUT THEM?! ?

Not going to have a Full Moon Event (Täydenkuun ilta) on Thursday, but for those who’d like to know, Full Moon is in Libra 0 and Sun is in conjunct of the Wounded Healer Chiron on Aries point. This is potent stuff. Be ready for some relationship karma activation. Hurt, disappointment, sorrow, fear, feelings of inadequancy and all their friends and family might just revisit from the past in the most cunning ways. Oh the joys of being human. Obviously all is in the name of SEEING what is inside. And TO SEE IS TO BE FREE. That’s what we all want, right kiddos?

Best gift ever is to be Alive

This is one of my favourite pictures of all time. I used to live there, right next to this little faerie meadow. But that was now and this is then. It’s my Birthday today. I’m very happy that I’ve been born, that I got this body, that I was gifted this life. It’s all been a gift. One gift after another. Gift, gift, gift. Life doesn’t owe me anything. Not even an apology. Why should it? Because I have suffered? Because I have been sick and poor? Because my heart has been broken, time and time again. Naah, it’s been one helluva story. And if I’m blessed enough, it’ll keep going for a some while more with sunshine and rainfalls, thunder and blizzards. All of that bein a gift, gift, gift. So grateful for being alive. So blissed to have a heart. So lucky to love. ♡
