Leo New Moon,may the force…Astrology

New Moon’s are always times of new beginnings in the monthly cycle. La Luna, call her Goddess Diana or Selene, has withdrawn into her own cosmic womb space for three days to rest and renew Herself. We are in the Dark or Black Moon times; very intuitive, magical, especially feminine and receptive. These three days are the most mystery filled time of the month. We are in the void, safe in the dark, receptive non-knowing space.

This Leo New Moon carries the energies of a witch’s familiar, a black cat’s energy which deflects negative energy.  The New Moon is at 10+ degrees LEO involves our hearts and our wills. This is a very erotic dramatic joyful playful black panther energy. Call on the power of the panther into your life, a super powerful shamanic animal.

 The New Moon day begins with a very fiery positive BANG as MARS re-enters Sagittarius for the first time since May 27.  

If you’re reading this, congratulations, you survived Mars Retrograde in Scorpio.

 The energies stirred up by Mars in Scorpio have been very angry, deeply soul-stirring. Mars in one of his home signs has been a time of deeply intense, obsessive and often painful shadow work, whether we entered that realm by choice or not. Many relationships broke up during this period.  Secrets have come out into the light, hacking, deception, manipulation, power and control issues are plain to see. The obsessive, darkly sexual qualities will definitely lift with the warrior in Sagittarius again.  Wherever Mars is, is where the action is. Mars is  pure energy, fire, passion, sexuality, testosterone, drive, initiating, defensiveness. Women have their own inner Masculine side too. 

Mars first entered SAGITTARIUS on March 5th. Think back; what was happening almost 5 months ago? What types of emotional changes have you gone through? MARS in Sagittarius brings back our sense of humor, our optimism, justice, inspiration, adventurous thrill seeking, yearning to travel and explore. Sagittarius energy seeks wide open spaces, mystical metaphysical  information and connects us with spiritual faith. We want to learn, to teach and share philosophical beliefs.  Mars in Sagittarius makes everyone feel much at ease, open and accepting. We are out of the boiling cauldron and into the positive fire.  There a lot of  positive energy at this New Moon.

Mars in SAGITTARIUS lights the fires of truth-telling in politics. Many people will be digging up the dirt on both leaders. Especially angry as hell at the DNC are Bernie followers who justifiably won’t quit or back HILLARY. His young followers are still passionate idealists and he has started a revolutionary fervor which won’t die out. Don’t expect politics to settle down in the U.S. or in the rest of the World either as Turkey is now a very worrisome place as is Russia. Mars in Sagittarius is literally foreign religious warriors. Daesh is a religious based Terrorist organization and we will continue, unfortunately, to hear more in France, Germany and other places.  

MARS at zero degrees Sagittarius squares REGULUS the Star which marks “Heart of the Lion” now at zero degrees VIRGO. This helps us to activate our solar, higher heart chakras connecting us with the ArchAngel Raphael who symbolizes this degree.  Raphael’s energy is a beautiful emerald green ray of light. Meditate on this energy and send it out to the world with the courage and strength of the Force to help heal the earth. 

MARS is sexual energy and its being squared by the Asteroid EROS in Pisces @ 6 degrees and opposing Mercury in VIRGO at 4 degrees. This creates a new spark and awareness of the body as the nexus of spiritual and sexual erotic energy. Do what you love to do. Is it painting, yoga, photography, dancing, singing, helping others, ? 

 There a lot of UP positive energy at this New Moon. 

The Moon in Leo is STRENGTH, in French La Force, literally The Force, as in “May the force be with you.” in Star Wars.  Usually symbolized by card #8 or #11

Strength Tarot Card, Tara Greene

The Marseilles Pattern Tarot 18th C. 

Moon Trines SATURN in SAGITTARIUS  which creates a positive sense of purpose and maturity especially in the political ring. 

Venus is also in LEO the sign of love affairs, creativity, children and will power.  It is women’s time to be in the starring role right now. The Symbol of STRENGTH is very much Venus in LEO. LEO is ruled by the SUN. Shine like gold.

Venus is Trine to the Galactic Center at 27 degrees SAGITTARIUS, indicating a great time to tap into the highest consciousness available from that black hole at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy.  

CHIRON at 24+ PISCES opposes JUPITER in VIRGO and they both square the Galactic Center. A great time to meditate on the miracle of being conscious in a human body and ask to receive Divine connection and healing. 

NEPTUNE and SATURN Retrograde are squaring off.

 Saturn stations DIRECT August 13th @ 10 degrees SAGE after being Retro since March 25 @ 16 degrees SAGE.   Neptune is also conjunct the SOUTH NODE of the Moon at 12 degrees PISCES. Indicating that old karmic connections are being washed away. Old belief systems illusions and projections is being dissolved. Old friends, ways of being and martyrdom is passing away. Let it go and Bless it. 

Saturn stations DIRECT August 13 at 10 degrees after being Retro since March 25 at 16 degrees SAGE.  These two planets are creating that fierce huge polarization we see in the world these days. Projections are being met with cold hard Saturn boundaries of reality, limits and karmic testing. Will you go all Neptunian playing Pokemon Go or will you stop and face the music?  Neptune is the place of no differentiation, non-duality, only compassionate love, “no religion too”as John Lennon wrote in the Most Neptunian, idealistic songs “Imagine. ” Saturn is in another Beatles song ‘Taxman.” I’ve gone all sentimental and find comfort listening to my teenage heroes the Beatles again as my form of a Neptunian coping mechanism. 

NOTE: Saturn and Neptune will be powerfully involved in September 1st New Moon Solar Eclipse and will have their final square on September 10th @ 10+ degrees 

NEPTUNE and PLUTO create a Finger of  GOD to the New Moon at 10+ degrees LEO 

Neptune in PISCES and PLUTO are in a Sextile aspect and they both form a 150-degree quincunx or inconjunct to the New Moon. This is the famous Yod aspect. We need to focus our hearts and wills through spiritual eyes and incorporate our soul’s physicality in Capricorn. Corporate simply means corporeal, the body, manifestation, 3 D. Ruled by Saturn.

Our dreams and our willpower are out of kilter. Neptune rules oil, the image that popped into my mind is that perhaps we have to oil up the “tin man” our defenses. In the Wizard of Oz, the Tin Man desperately wants a heart as he symbolizes the cold, mechanical human as a machine or cog in the wheel. Tin is Jupiter’s metal, ruler of Sagittarius BTW. 

Use this New Moon to set powerful new intentions. We are coming up to Septembers very busy Eclipse season. This is the time to shine your light, roar with courage, let passion guide you and be the Light. 

I will have part 2 with John Sandbach’s symbols to follow.

Eclipse cycle pointers, International Women’s day, Lilith

March 7 the day before the Eclipse the Moon moves in to PISCES @ 11:08 am PST/ 2:08 PM EST and besides ramming into MARS in SAGITTARIUS with a hard square and then conjuncting MERCURY in PISCES in the evening, you should try to relax and center and focus your energies which may be very difficult to do.
PISCES, flooded with sensitivity, emotions, compassion, foggy.
 
You won’t need your hoverboard because you will feel like you are floating. It’s very easy to get lost in everyone and everything around you.
 
PERUSING THE CHART THERE ARE SOME INTERESTING POINTERS from the GODDESSES
pisces eclipse Tara Greene
 
LILITH  is at 21 degrees LIBRA- in a CARDINAL T-square 
Lilith and eclipse, Tara Greene Horoscopes
Lilith by Santiago
She is SQUARING PLUTO in CAPRICORN-
big power struggles with the DARK GODDESS’S sexual energies, FEAR and projections, embracing death and change and the Patriarchal letting go of power. We are seeing the shadows come up into the Light through Donald Trump,Ted Cruz and all those super conservatives, trying to keep the old old heroic boys model, how big is my dick BS, shouting the racist, homophobic or refugee blather. As my friend Adi pointed out this is so we can plainly see it in the light of day. You can’t miss it. 
LILITH is also squaring the asteroid EROS @ 26 degrees CAPRICORN
When in doubt, don’t argue, don’t negotiate,  just make love. Check out where this erotic degree is in your chart.
LILITH is OPPOSITE URANUS in ARIES- Feel the Bern. 
Lilith refused to negotiate. I see Bernie Sanders actually embodying Lilith against the corporate big guns. His purpose is to confront power-over politics.  He is the revolution for younger people who see that they can take the power into their own hands. This is bravery to trust one’s own truth and soul. I am praying for Bernie to get the Dem nomination. I am beginning to see it. 
LILITH & SATURN are sextiling each other which sounds rather pornish. 
We love the seniors these days. 
LILITH is inconjunct to the SUN, MOON, CHIRON and the SOUTH NODE
Even in LIBRA where Lilith is learning to negotiate, the PISCES tidal wave may be pretty difficult to balance. All that PISCES is too gooey, too sensitive, too wishy-washy, too idealistic, too brain fogged, addicted, fucked up, deluded, self-destructive, glamorized. 
You gotta think about this for a bit until you get it. Working our way out of the trap of glamor as Alice Bailey used to say. IT’s  a huge BLING SELFIE ME ME ME $$$$ Billionaire’s Hollywood, false advertising reality WAKE UP CALL shocker. I am feeling this one myself already.
OMG how could I have gotten caught up in THAT illusion???
Many New Age sites are saying this is the ascension. This will be all perfect. But I’m telling you it’s not. 
NEPTUNE IS DEBT is PISCES and the veil of illusion the Wall Street, IMF, The Fed. etc. has woven will become transparent as water.  So watch out…we are about to get a SUPER SOAKER . I would seek higher ground on all levels. 
More Goddess wisdom
SATURN in SAGITTARIUS & ATHENA in AQUARIUS @ 16 degrees are  INCONJUNCT to SIRIUS and the U.S. SUN @ 13+ degrees CANCER. 
Justice and wisdom and war. Saturn in Sagittarius is the wise elder judge, Athena indicates Greece again having something to do with the world economics again, Poor stressed out Greece. Also justice for the Syrian refugees landing there of course as well. Athena is the warrior Goddess, detached cool, using hi-tech to go into battle in Aquarius. Saturn is a key player in this eclipse squaring SUN MOON etc. I am picking up on spying trials, and war against DEASH. 
Goddess VESTA @ ZERO degrees TAURUS Trines FIXED STAR REGULUS + Asteroid ISIS EGYPTIAN GODDESS
VESTA is the Sacred Flame of focus, dedication, the sexual fires of KUNDALINI, the sacred hearth, and the root word of inVESTments. She has entered the sign of the BULL, which is more of a Bullshit alert and not a Bull mArket. 
REGULUS the famed heart of the Lion now at ZERO degrees of VIRGO in TROPICAL ZODIAC is also conjunct to ISIS the EGYPTIAN GODDESS. Her glorious name has been taken in vain by the newscasters.
VESTA and ISIS are squared by MARS in SAGITTARIUS 
This could mean a great deal of money and troops could be on the ground fighting in the next six months against JIHADISTS and Terrorists in the ancient Bull worshipping countries of Babylon and Egypt.  
JUNO @ 15 degrees SCORPIO and JUPITER in Virgo
they sound like a great couple don’t they? Are INCONJUNCT to URANUS in ARIES. 
Uranus is already semi-sextile exactly to the SUN and MOON eclipse degrees.
This further complicates the matters. Juno,the Feminine Genius and Jupiter’ generous wisdom could work very well together to push the changes needed now.
VIRGO, VIRGIN GODDESS
For all you VIRGO people and anyone with Natal Planets in Virgo
and everyone has the sign VIRGO in your Horoscope chart somewhere, this is the perfect advice to help guide you through the PISCES SOLAR ECLIPSE cycle.
Virgo is opposite to Pisces and with Jupiter in Virgo opposing the SUN and MOON with the North Node aligned to Jupiter.
One allows oneself to be less in order to be more-less nearly perfect but more nearly whole. “-Edward Edinger- Jungian analyst.
VIRGO is one of the guiding sign to help us navigate the eclipse energies. Virgo is also the Sign associated with the year 2016 which reduces to #9 the Hermit.
We need to be able to be less than perfect and completely compassionately love ourselves unconditionally at this Pisces Solar eclipse.
The #eclipse cycles recur every 19 years. Where were you March 8 1997? “
 
DO SET Intentions to get information in your dreams Monday night.
I will be taking the day off on March 8 to meditate for most of the day.Plus its INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’s DAY. the Solar eclipse is triggering a big party for all women.
The sign of PISCES is the womb. 
PISCES TAG LINE is “I BELIEVE”
Whatever one believes is what they will see and create. Keep the faith baby. 
The PISCES MOON will conjunct JUPITER on the 8th @ 2:57 am PST/ 5:57 am EST.
