Desires of the Heart

The March 28, 2017 Lunar Cycle

A Synopsis of this Lunar Month

Pisces New Moon

This March 28, 2017 (March 27 MST) New Moon lies in amongst the stars of the western swimming fish of Pisces and in the shadow of the Venus retrograde. It conjoins Alpha and Beta of Lacerta, our primordial Lizard, in the far northern heavens. From the far south is Alpha Reticuli. It lies over the thrashing tail of ole' Cetus, creating emotionally turbulent waters. Our prominent New Moon star is Algenib, the wing tip of Pegasus and one of the four stars creating the Great Square of Pegasus, providing the key to this lunar cycle.

This New Moon, this lunar cycle, and the entirety of the Venus retrograde, provides opportunity to clear emotional and psychic webs, those clouding our hearts' true desires and the capacity to realize those desires. It provides opportunity to reassess and redefine our values, that which is truly important to us, and to create the receptive space within our hearts, the proper heart resonance, that allows the fulfillment we seek.

The retrogrades of Juno and the Centaur Chariklo (pronounced Kha'riklo) synthesize in 2017, with their first conjunction occurring on this New Moon. Juno and Chariklo create an interesting pairing. The asteroid Juno is about relationships of all types, the types of relations we want, the covenants we have in our relationships, and the nature of how we interrelate. Chariklo is the largest of Centaurs, named after the nymph Chariklo from Mount Pelion in Greece, Chiron's wife. Chiron and Chariklo have a rather special relationship. The entire energetic is active for most of 2017, a significant and interesting one for relationships of all types, especially for those with a covenant bond, all expounded upon in this month's Lunar Planner.

Jupiter makes its second square with Pluto on March 30, just into the lunar cycle, and as the Moon conjoins Mars and Ceres in Aries. Mercury, in Aries, begins its retrograde on April 9, between the Gibbous and Full Moon.

Although Uranus made the final of its three conjunctions with Eris in the previous lunar cycle, and Jupiter, now retrograde, is moving away from its conjunction with Haumea and opposition to Uranus-Eris, this planetary dynamic and its significant catalytic influence is far from over. This overall energetic is comprised of several planetary forces all in significant geometric relationships to each other. The Saturn-Ixion conjunction, expressing in part as the tyrannical patriarch, creates a Yod with Haumea to Sedna, playing a significant role in provoking the reemergence of the feminine force on Earth to aid in the rebirth human consciousness.

The double Yod: Mars-Uranus-Eris opposite Jupiter-Haumea with Saturn-Ixion, Sedna and Chiron

Saturn and Ixion have just recently entered sidereal Sagittarius, but both begin their retrogrades back into the intensity of Scorpio and over the sting of the Scorpion. The Centaur Chiron continues to ally in strength with Sedna, creating another Yod to Haumea, supporting a long healing and empowering journey of the feminine force on Earth to impel a new renaissance in consciousness. We are also in the midst of the Jupiter-Pluto square and the Jupiter-Uranus opposition, which continue over the months ahead. A climatic configuration occurs in September 2017, as Ceres creates a T-Square as Jupiter returns to conjoin Haumea opposite Eris, immediately followed with the third Jupiter-Uranus opposition. Uranus will also oppose Haumea two more times, in late 2017 and early 2018, and the Eris-Haumea opposition, which began in 2014, continues well into 2018.

A dynamic and revelatory Full Moon occurs on April 10-11, as the Moon conjoins Jupiter with the Sun and Moon creating a Grand Square with Pluto and Vesta. The Sun conjoins Eris and Uranus opposite Haumea in the couple of days following, with Mars and Ceres approaching their conjunction with Sedna.

Venus Retrograde

You can pause the video and drag the progress bar to view any section of the video.

Venus began her retrograde on March 4. This Venus retrograde occurs in Pisces, under the Great Square of Pegasus and over the thrashing tail of Cetus, the technbureaucratic monster of collective human consciousness. The retrograde also conjoins Pallas and is triggered by Mercury (shown in the video).

The Venus retrograde is an ideal time for introspection, to reassess our values and desires, that which is important to the heart, also a time to reassess personal finances. Look at where the Venus retrograde occurs in your personal chart and the planets it transits to gain insight into how and in what area of your life it effects. The Venus retrograde will transit natal Eris for many people, those born up to about 1967. Much nore about the Venus retrograde along with details on how to work with it based on star alignmmnets durring the retrograde, is presented in the article: The 2017 Venus Retrograde & The New 1.6-year Venus Cycle

The Venus bio-harmonic audio meditation

For those who have the Planetary Bio-Harmonic Audio Meditations, the duration of its retgorade is an ideal time to work with the Venus Bio-harmonic Audio Mediation. You can also incorporate additional planetary audios base on personal transits, and especially when there are lunar triggers. See this Month's Lunar Calendar for exact aspect times; or the "Lunar Cycle Timing Chart" found under the "Resources" menu on the Planetary Bio-Harmonics web page.

These are but a few of many events occurring in this lunar cycle. The Monthly Lunar Planner explores the details of these events, their meaning and more—the underlying cosmic currents upon which we evolve and which guide our daily lives—based in star-level astronomical sidereal astrology and synodic astrology.

If you would like to learn more about the energetics of each lunar cycle, how they relate to your personal experience and the opportunity for growth each cycle offers, to learn more about the longer-term underlying cycles driving evolutionary change on our planet, and to gain more insight into star-level astrology, the meaning of the stars and constellations, and about astronomical-based synodic astrology, subscribe to the monthly Lunar Planner.

About Lunar Cycles

You need not know a thing about astrology to live in attunement to the natural Lunar Cycles. The progressing lunar cycles and their changing eight lunar phases is a natural time piece of spiraling creative expression. Participating and acting in time with the changing lunar phases can enhance your creative process, synchronize your mind and body, teach you how to breathe with your emotions, to live in the power of the present, and help you to become more productive and follow through with your plans and ideals. Most of all, it can drastically reduce stress that is so prominent when living in our modern-day mechanized and synthetic world that is out of touch with our natural biological rhythms. Simply download the Lunar Planner Introduction and each month's Lunar Calendar to learn how. It is free, simple and fun.

Phases of the Lunar Cycle

The Lunar Calendar

There are two parts to the Monthly Lunar Calendar:

1) The Lunar Calendar Introduction - The Lunar Cycle & Lunar Phases

This FREE printable document provides simple and empowering instructions on how to live in attunement to the natural lunar phases. It includes a detailed explanation of the characteristics of each lunar phase, how one lunar phase shifts to another, creating an experiential spiral of personal growth.

The Lunar Planner Introduction is not something to just read, it is an experiential and participatory tool that can empower you to live in harmony and balance with your emotional and physical experience. To gain full benefit from the Lunar Planner, use it along with each month's lunar calendar on a daily basis: write down your experiences and feelings in each month's calendar, especially before and after each lunar phase shift. Observe and and take note of your experiences and feelings on a daily basis in the context of the lunar phase characteristics as presented in this Introduction. Doing so quickly reveals how your life experience, inner feelings, and realizations are colored by lunar phases and their transitions. As you observe the synchronicity between your life experience, inner feelings, and the changing lunar phases, you can then learn to consciously live attuned to the natural spiral of growth rather than just observe it, not merely scheduling your activities within the lunar spiral of growth, but more importantly, embracing your life experience in its fullness, living in the present and thus gaining greater self-empowerment through the inner growth your life experience has to offer.

Lunar Planner Introduction is a free PDF.

The Introduction is a 9 page printable PDF file available to view or download (~600 kb).

2) The Monthly Lunar Calendar

Printed annual Lunar Planner writing journal

You can also order the Annual Lunar Planner Writing Journal. Printed and shipped to you.

The two page Lunar Calendar is posted a few days before each NEW MOON. The Lunar Calendar reveals the dates and times of each lunar phase shifts and their changing characteristics. You can use the lunar calendar as a daily planner as well as a journal to record your experiences and feelings as the changing lunar phase occur.

Writing your experiences in the Lunar Calendar and correlating them with the changing lunar phases is the best way to learn how the lunar cycles and their changes phases work at an experiential level. Working with the Lunar Planner Introduction along with each month's lunar calendar can help you to become consciously aware of the lunar rhythm in your life and how to participate with it in empowerment. The Lunar Calendar goes hand-in-hand with the above Lunar Planner Introductory pdf file.

The Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary

Planetary cycles create the evolutionary currents of growth occurring within ourselves and our lives. To know what these cycles of life are asking of us is to consciously participate in life from a place of personal empowerment and inner peace. In this awareness and attunement, we can walk the path leading to our highest fulfillment—physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The "Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary," also made available just before each New Moon, articulates the opportunity for growth in consciousness each lunar month offers and how each month's lunar theme unfolds throughout the changing phases of the Lunar Calendar. I explore the theme of each lunar month and its unfoldment in our lives with "astronomical star-level astrology" which I have evolved over decades. This is not sign-based astrology reducing the heavens to twelve archetypes, but is experientially-based astrology, much like one would naturally learn by living and sleeping under the starry heavens. I explore planetary alignments with all of the individual stars and constellations in the entire celestial sphere, along with the myriad of interweaving planetary cycles, their themes and where we are in those cycles. Looking at the astrology of individual stars rather than that of mere astrological signs (whether tropical or sidereal signs), is like adjusting an out of focus camera lens into crystal clarity. Each lunar cycle nesting within the longer-term planetary cycles, weaves a story line of our evolutionary unfoldment and spiritual awakening.

The monthly Lunar Planner Commentary is based in star level, Sidereal Astrology and Synodic Astrology with unique and original Galactic Star Lore—the mythology (picture language) of the Greater Heavens.

The Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary is available for a small subscription fee, merely the price of one good Cappuccino per month. New subscribers have a five-day trial period to explore the current Monthly Lunar Planner before committing to the 6-month subscription. You can also visit the Lunar Planner Archive to view previous issues of the Lunar Planner so you can get a feel for what the monthly Lunar Planners are all about. Lunar Planners older than a couple of months are made available to non-subscribers.

Although each lunar month's astrological commentary reveals the dynamics of the unfolding lunar theme and provides an embracing context to our experience, it is adjunct material. It is not necessary to read the monthly astrology in order to learn to live in attunement to the lunar cycles, as offered in the above free Lunar Planner Introduction and by using each month's free Lunar Calendar. The monthly Lunar Planner Commentary is also a wonderful educational tool for astrologers wishing to learn more about astronomy, synodic cycles, the fixed stars and their influence in astrology.

Whether you subscribe to the Monthly Lunar Planner or not, the rest of the Lunar Planner web site is packed full of educational resources, which are free and available to everyone. So please feel welcome to explore.

TESTIMONIAL

Hi Nick,

I wanted to write you a note and let you know that you are the first subscription that I have ever signed up for on the internet since I have been using it. I have been so used to everything being free for so long in the 'wild-west' days of the web that I didn't really find anything I thought was worth paying for... Until you!

I have been wanting to write you / speak with you for a while anyway because the level of your understanding is so profound that I wanted to connect a little more on where it is coming from. I had been aware of your work through another galactic astrologer friend of mine years ago. She was sending me some of your work...and since I have found it online and I print it out and read it faithfully every month...

So this is to tell you that I think subscribing to your work is well worth it. Your level of understanding and galactic connectivity is profound and it has opened much understanding for me...so thank you for your work and all that you carry ~ Nickki Lee Hill
