Our March 20, 2015 New Moon produces a Total Solar Eclipse on the Equinox conjoining the Vernal Point of Earth’s Precessional Cross. The eclipse path of totality passes between Iceland and Europe, through the Norwegian Sea. A partial eclipse will be visible throughout Europe, Iceland and Greenland, producing an exceptionally dark sky. Varying degrees of the eclipse will also be seen in northern Africa, the Middle East and northwestern Asia.

The Equinox Solar Eclipse occurs just after the seventh and final Uranus-Pluto geocentric square. This is an exceptional event producing a lunar cycle that impels an action oriented fresh start, one motivating radical, innovative and progressive change—a current set in motion that will continue throughout the remainder of this decade. This leads into the Uranus-Eris conjunctions and new Uranus-Eris cycle that begins in 2016, and then into the prominent Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto conjunctions and the new cycles they produce, occurring in 2020. These events mark the next major turnings in the evolutionary awakening of human consciousness.

Total Solar Eclipse

A Total Lunar Eclipse occurs on April 4 in Virgo and over Corvus, the Raven Messenger. The Sun conjoins Uranus and squares Pluto, creating a potent and revelatory Full Moon T-Square. This is the third of four consecutive Total Lunar Eclipses occurring in 2014 and 2015, called a Tetrad. This eclipse is extraordinarily short, less than 5 minutes in duration. The eclipse will be visible from western North America, eastern Asia, the Pacific, Hawaii, Australia and New Zealand.

Total Lunar Eclipse

Jupiter completes its retrograde in this lunar cycle just after the Disseminating Moon, which conjoins retrograde Saturn. Juno and Jupiter have been in a synchronous retrograde since December of 2014. Juno completed its retrograde in the previous lunar cycle. Juno and Jupiter also began their new 7.7-year synodic cycle under the auspices of the Head of the Lion in the previous lunar cycle. Jupiter’s direct station engages a sense of movement and expansion in our lives. It especially brings motivation for relationships of all types to break ground into new vistas of experience. See Jupiter and Juno. There are also several stimulating triggers with Uranus in this lunar cycle, impelling revolutionary innovation and refreshing change.

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 astrology and synodic astrology.


February 18, 2015 New Moon Theme
Through the Hourglass

Our February 18, 2015 New Moon lies in the constellation of Aquarius, our humanitarian waterbearer. It conjoins the Helix Nebula in Aquarius and the Veil Nebula on the wing tip of Cygnus the Swan, also know as the Northern Galactic Cross. Further north, lying on the galactic equator, is Cygnus X-3, an intense X-ray eclipsing binary star system with an extraordinarily rapid 4.79-hour eclipse rate, which harmonically translates into the visible light spectrum at 5615 Angstroms, the color Yellow–Lemon. Cygnus X-3 produces ultrahigh energy cosmic rays that even penetrate Earth's surface, detected in the deep caverns of the Soudron iron mines in Minnesota. Also of influence is Enif, the nose of Pegasus. All of these entries create a dynamic accelerating force that elevates mind to a more intuitive embracing universal awareness, quite different than the more self-focused quality of our previous lunar cycle. This lunar cycle brings inspiration to participate beyond our exclusive attractions and segregated ways based on gender, race, creed, or culture, into the inclusiveness of unconditional compassion.

Juno and Jupiter begin a new 7.7-year synodic cycle under the auspices of the Head of the Lyon, which mobilizes and entirely new and very progressive evolutionary current for relationships of all types. Juno and Jupiter have been in a synchronous retrograde since December of 2014. Juno completes its retrograde in this lunar cycle. Jupiter will follow in the next, at which time this new current will start to fully engage, impelling relationships of all types to break ground into new vistas of experience and new modalities of interrelating free from limiting dogmas of the past.

Venus and Mars make their conjunction in this lunar cycle, synthesizing our expressive and receptive qualities. Both conjoin Uranus and square Pluto, triggering the seventh and final Uranus-Pluto square, which occurs toward the end of this lunar cycle. This square marks the completion of the 2012-2015 transition and full entry into the second action oriented quarter of the 138-year Uranus-Pluto cycle that began in the mid-1960s. The Venus and Mars triggers to the intensifying Uranus-Pluto square inspire passionate and cooperative, yet assertive action to create revolutionary change in our lives—an underlying current expressing throughout this lunar cycle. This leads into the following Total Eclipse lunar cycle, which occurs on the March Equinox, on the vernal point of Earth’s Precessional Cross.

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 astrology and synodic astrology.

January 20, 2015 New Moon Theme
Clarifying Motive

Our January 20, 2015 New Moon occurs just as Mercury stations to begin its retrograde. Stars setting the theme for this lunar cycle include Alpha and Beta Indus; Alberio, the beak of Cygnus the Swan; Anser of the Vulpecula the fox; Alpha and Beta Sagitta, the missile of Zeus; and Altair, Eye of the Eagle, which is the overseeing star of this area of the zodiak. All of these very diverse stars amalgamate to form the complex zodiakal energetic expressing through this New Moon.

This area of the zodiak articulates a diversely-intented group of individuals and associated levels of consciousness, those either covert, manipulative and driven from self-interest (as the character of the old business & military paradigms), and those spiritually aware, of integrity and who are attuned to the land and the environment, including shamans and keepers of sacred knowledge and sacred ways.

This is the world of the shamanistic, the ceremonial, fanaticism, obsession, and passion. Although driven from personal interest, it is often of those with broad global vision. Either way, surface appearances, cloaks and facades often shroud who is who in an aura of mystery; cloaks often used as strategic tools to serve one’s deeper hidden motive.

Early sidereal Capricorn is of hermetism, esoterism, magic, and various areas of esoteric knowledge and science, also of covert technologies as well as the secret places and orders associated with them. These can include military-scientific-extraterrestrial bases, hermitages, exclusive retreats, or isolated places with a spiritual focus—including sacred sites or places of power under the care of their mysterious stewards, or merely places of personal retreat and seclusion—but places strategic to one’s purpose. We also find an arsenal of strategic tools (technological or magikal), to either aid or control humanity as well as the skill to use them; and this includes our personal tools and assets.

This is also where an eloquent and artful play of seduction and consent co-exists; but also one that can be insidiously cunning or even voraciously consuming. Hear lies the nature of the tools of business and war: the interplay of people in their sexy disguises, whether cloaked in the eloquent and sleek stealth jet or particle beam laser based satellite, or merely dressed in seductive leather and lace. Microscopic discernment is required to see through the alluring facades inherent in this world of mystery, esoteric knowledge, personal motive, and covert maneuvers, to identify what is truly nurturing verses what just tantalizingly appears to be so.

Our New Moon stars impel us to concretize our visions and ideals into demonstrable form. They impart a desire for independence and motivate independent pursuits, generally for personal gain, whether for material gain, for position or advantage in life, or for greater personal knowledge and understanding. They inspire intellectual curiosity, inquisitiveness and discovery of that which is hidden, but most of all, they impel us to examine and clarify our own personal motives that formulate our lives.

Juno and Jupiter, both in their synchronous retrogrades, begin new annual synodic cycles with Earth amongst the stars of the Egyptian Scarabaeus, our modern Cancer the crab. These synods set in motion underlying currents that are a part of an expansive redefining process occurring in relationships and in how we interrelate. These cycles feed into the emergence of a new Juno-Jupiter 7.7-year cycle that begins in March 2015 under the Head of the Lion and fully engages in May 2015. See: Relationships & The Juno-Jupiter Synchronous Retrogrades.

A new Mercury 116-day cycle begins at the same time as the Earth-Juno cycle, due to a Sun-Mercury-Earth-Juno alignment. This creates a compounded energetic that adds a strong emphasis to redefining communication, logistics, negotiations, agreements and contracts within relationships and partnerships of all types, especially throughout this lunar month.

Venus engages a new 326-day cycle with Mars, conjoining fortuitous Algenib of the Great Square of Pegasus and Erakis, the suprgiant Garnet Star in Cepheus. Venus and Mars will then make three conjunctions over the next few months starting in the next lunar cycle, due to the upcoming Venus retrograde, which will occur under the Head of Lion. These three conjunctions (occurring in February, September and November), all of which are very unique, nest within the energetic of the Venus-Mars Algenib-Erakis cycle and augment its outer expression in our lives. Venus-Mars cycles create a dynamic evolutionary current within our selves and within our relationships. This specific cycle, along with the subsequent Venus retrograde and three Venus-Mars conjunctions, impel us to make significant transitions in our values and in the outward creative actions we take based upon those values. Venus also begins new cycles with Uranus and Eris following the Venus-Mars synod.

Overall, this is a very progressive lunar cycle engaging dynamic evolutionary currents throughout the year ahead that should free up, or shake up, what has been held in stasis by accelerating pioneering change.

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 astrology and synodic astrology.
