If you live in the UK, then the Full Moon happens Thursday November 13th; that is also true for those on the east coast as well as those in Central Time zone in the U.S. Being in DFW, I view events from a Central Time viewpoint. This same event occurs on Wednesday the 12th for those in Pacific Time and points west.

A full moon with the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus happens once a year, but varies in precise location (in terms of degrees) from year to year.

This year the event occurs at 21 degrees, so if your Sun, Moon, or Ascendant is there then this is an important event for you. (Example: those with Aug 14th birthdays would be affected.)  Unsure if you have a 21 degree planet?  Try the free chart page at AstroLabe.

For President Obama, this most affects his Mars in Virgo at 22 degrees. I’ll offer that this Full Moon is about getting things done. Obama is a Solar Leo, and things Virgo tend to be things financial for Solar Leos. Bottom line: The President Elect needs to get as many things in place regarding the financial sector as soon as possible. After the Full Moon, “things” will change.

For the rest of us, the answers are found in three additional events: (1) Sun Sextile Saturn on Tuesday; (2) Venus conjuncts Pluto then enters Capricorn; and (3) Jupiter Sextiles Uranus. I suppose I could add (4) Sun Squares Neptune.

(1) Sun Sextile Saturn on Tuesday. This day is about getting things done. You’ll feel like working, and you should. Avoid the frivilous like the plague. Not the best day for you if your work involves anything “goofy.” Clowns should stay home. Artists and Writers should use this day to catch up on finances and paperwork; all of us should.

(2) Venus Conjuncts Pluto then enters Cap. Pluto, which is ordinarily malefic without any additional influence, continues to be atop of malefic part of Sagittarius. In a sense, this extra-malefic Pluto “poisons” dear Venus. This aspect perfects about 1am Eastern, midnight Central, 5am UK.

The earlier part of the day was a good thing to get things done, but this evening is a good time to hide unless you are a criminal or a cheat. Criminals and cheats will fare quite well this evening. If you are NOT a criminal, cheat, scammer, or liar, then secure your possessions and do NOT engage in any form of business this evening. Any “offers” that come your way this evening are almost certainly scams. Straight to the trash for them.

When is it safe to act again? I’d say Saturday afternoon through “about” 10pm Central on Sunday. This weekend will be a source of some AMAZING financial deals done on the golf course, family dinner, and other close & personal private gatherings.

(3) Jupiter Sextiles Uranus. This is a BIG and long term aspect that has been in the process of perfecting for a month or three depending on your point of view. It will exert similar influence for another month or three. More than a few Taureans, Virgos, and (ESPECIALLY) Capricorns are benefiting from this; water signs also to a lesser degree.

If you bought Big Oil (Scorpio) then you placed yourself in a position to make quite a bit of money. Prices were artifically high; now, they are almost certainly artificially low.

This is a major “lotto winner” aspect, but for many the Lotto won’t be a ticket bought at a convenience store. This may be the time to get into a educational program that you thought you couldn’t enter. Or, it may be a time to enter certain kinds of business (obviously the kind that benefits from a recession). If you don’t get the job done Monday or Tuesday (or maybe Wednesday), then shoot for the Saturday / Sunday period described above.

(4) Sun Squares Neptune. All good things come to an end. Sun Squares Neptune is death to many activities and events. Neptune is associated with illness, and I’ve seen myself get a bug around this kind of aspect. This happens Thursday morning after the Full Moon (afternoon for UK), and it brings to an end everything described in 1, 2, & 3, above. Of course, #3 is very long term, so other opportunities will open. But for THIS Full Moon, the Sun Square Neptune aspect kills the ability to get things done for most of us.

Exceptions exist, of course. Some scientific researchers, if their research isn’t contaminated or spoiled under this aspect, may make breakthroughs. Actually, the BIGGEST breakthroughs maybe if the research *IS* contaminated. After all, that is how Fleming discovered Penicillin. (Penicillin mold contaminated his petri dish and killed his bacterial cultures.) Ditto for the Stickie Note. So, pay attention. That Thursday disaster may have a brilliant solution to a larger problem hidden within it.

One footnote: look for the events of this Full Moon to resurface circa July 21st of 2010.

The Fire Kite of Friday June 27th 2008

The Fire Kite

Things, they will be a-changin’ this weekend.  But you knew that already, didn’t you? 

Predictions first; explanations next. 



Aries: a good day for you, but you might feel a little irritable at times.  The moon leaves you moody, and Mars & Pluto contribute to your irritability.  Still, this day favors you.

Taurus: Your best day for “a while” is Saturday.  Cool it today.  Don’t get in scuffles with Leos or Sadge.

Gemini:  You love the show.  The Sun is trying to bring you money, and you might can get it.  Wisdom says to watch the squabbles from the sidelines.  But, like Aries, you can do well if you join in.

Cancer: Have you had your birthday yet?  If so, wait for Saturday, then “Full Speed Ahead”!  Otherwise, lay low until the day after your birthday!

Leo:  Still irritable?  I know.  It really *IS* their fault.  Try not to have a stroke, though.  If you can blow it off in exercise, then do so.

Virgo: Wait for tomorrow.  This isn’t your day.  Leo may lead you astray with a military campaign; watch this battle from the sidelines.

Libra:  What do you want to do?  You have a lot of flexibility with this day.  Make it yours.

Scorpio: Like Taurus et al, you need to wait until tomorrow before you pounce.  You can hurt a Sadge, if you want, but making them your ally would be a much better idea.  If you must, be their “Secret Santa” for Christmas in July.

Sadge:  Somebody made you mad.  If you and Leo collaborate, then you can turn the world upside down.  Scorpio would be a great ally, but they won’t feel their full strength until tomorrow.  Try not to lie.  You’ll be tempted.

Capricorn:  Take a vacation day Friday.  Really.  I know you are a workaholic, but take a break.  THEN, plan to work on Saturday.  You need to take this time when others are playing to get things together for your next campaign, whatever that may be.  This will give you the best advantage, particularly in business or money matters.

Aquarius:  Are you deceiving them, or are they deceiving you?  Aries, Leo, and Sadge can all be your friends, but especially Aries.  Watch out for double-dealing, and don’t do it yourself.  You could take a day off, too, but you might miss an opportunity.  Up to you to decide which is better.

Pisces: Read Scopio, but replace “Sadge” with Aries.  And, chances are that the Aries has Leo & Sadge friends that can beat you up if you do hurt them.  Make them your friend, and wait for a better opportunity on Saturday.

Okay, for those more interested in the “technical” aspects of Friday June 27th of 2008, here’s “the rest of the story.”


Still reeling from the Uranus Retrograde?  That’s okay, Friday should start to feel a little better for some of you.  Moon in Aries Trines Mars in Leo; both loosely Trine Pluto.  This is a Grand Fire Trine, with the two planets of War & Death in them.  They are also the planets of vigorous exercise and “purging” one’s self.  (As long as you are not anorexic or bulimic, this is probably okay.)  For some people, this can very much be a “get things done” day. 

I’ll call this configuration a Fire Kite. And, it is the Fire Kite of June 27th of 2008.

Mars (in Leo) is opposed by both Neptune and Chiron.  Aquarius planets convent the Grand Trine into a Kite.  This is a notoriously “lucky” configuration (for some), and Aries, Leo, Sadge, & Aquarius should consider buying a lotto ticket.  Gemini & Libra have potential, too.  (Earth and Water signs should defer until Saturday to try their luck.)  For more about kites, read this article.  That article is set in 2007, but the theory is still relevant for today.

I think this article by Eric Francis is also moderately useful.

I’d like to add that both Chiron and Neptune, despite being in Aquarius, tend to add a bit of “Whoa, not so fast!” to this configuration.  Neptune can be about aspirations set too high, or just plain delusions.  Chiron is moving backwards and is still near the North Node.  To win that Lotto, you might have to do some work.  

In fact, if you read the Eric Francis article, you know that Chiron and Neptune tell us where the solution can be found.  Unfortunately, the answer is simple too obvious here: Chiron (healing & teaching) and Neptune (dreams & hope) are needed to heal Mars (anger & war) and Pluto (death & taxes) and problems with our “home” (The Moon).  Frankly, I think this applies on days other than this Friday.  But, the planets emphasize this today for reasons only they know.

Please note that Saturday will have an “Earth Kite” (sounds like an Oxymoron, doesn’t it) but THAT kite will have Uranus Retrograde in Pisces as its tail (instead of Chiron / Neptune).  What an interesting configuration! 

All: Pay bills & clean house.  The Moon is waning, and this is a good time to close out old debt, let go of dysfunctional relationships, and clean house in general.  Speaking of cleaning house, the next month or so is a good time to revamp for the summer, if you haven’t done so already.
