New and Full Moons

If any of these Moons are happening in aspect to one of your personal planets you will experience more effect from the celestial event.

Generally, new moons are inception points for initiating new beginning and fresh starts. While full moons indicate periods of fulfillment and release of what no longer works, or has reached completion.

Void of Course (vc) means the Moon is not making any exact aspects to other celestial bodies after it reaches its New, or Full Moon phase.

Planetary Aspects

There are lots of places where you can get a free download of your astrology chart these days. The best sites offer access to a wide assortment of data about your birth chart, as well as transits and progressions.

Once you understand the symbolism represented by the luminaries, planets and points in your chart, you can allow your own intuition to interpret what celestial events mean for you personally.

Conjunctions and Oppositions to your personal planets usually are the most impactful. Aspects which are in direct conversation with your Sun and Moon (known as luminaries) are usually the most important prognosticators for significant influence and change.

Opposition

An opposition is a 180° aspect between two celestial bodies on the zodiac wheel.

An Opposition brings illumination about the planet and/or the area of your life (house) where it’s located. If you can stay on the high side of the vibration the results from an opposition can be very growth producing and bring welcomed opportunities.

However, if resisted much struggle and suffering can ensue. Look for the opportunities in events, rather than play the victim of external forces operating. Keeping a positive attitude can help you to make needed changes that result in improved circumstances for your future.

Conjunction

A conjunction is a joining of celestial bodies on the zodiac wheel. A conjunction can range from exact to within a 7° orb. The closer/tighter the conjunction the more effect the conjunction can have.

A Conjunction represents birth and new beginnings. Conjunctions are usually more pleasant than oppositions in their effect. The notable exception to this might be a Lunar Eclipse Conjunct your Sun, Moon, or other personal planet, or point (like your Midheaven or Ascendant).

Lunar Eclipses often bring things to a head with dramatic events at the dark of the moon followed by an opportunity for a new beginning/fresh start in the area of your life where they occur.

Again, staying open-hearted with a positive mindset of gratitude helps you stay attractive to any potential opportunities.

Trine

A tine is a 120° aspect between celestial bodies on the zodiac wheel.

Trines represent an easy flowing energy between celestial bodies. It is easy to integrate and an agreeable influence. The tendency when experiencing a trine influence is to take your good fortune for granted and expect it to continue. So, the effects of the trine may have only short-term beneficial influence rather than long term results.

Sextile

A Sextile is a 60° aspect between celestial bodies on the zodiac wheel.

Sextiles represent opportunities which must be acted upon for you to get the benefits available for success.

Square

A square is a 90° aspect between celestial bodies on the zodiac wheel.

A square represents conflicting forces in which tension builds that must be released. Some change, or adjustment is needed when a square is active.

Inconjunct (aka Qunincunx)

An inconjunct is a 150° aspect between celestial bodies on the zodiac wheel.

An inconjunct represents very different energies from those you identify as being acceptable from the worldview you’ve adopted. As such, they are extremely challenging to integrate. An inconjunct feels like an irritant, or nuisance, that you just want to go away. You may find that the best strategy when dealing with inconjunct energy is to pay it as little attention as you can. Just be in an acceptance mode and know that it will soon pass.

Essential Oil Allies

Essential Oils can be very potent allies for helping you stay positive and elevating your frequency to attract the best possible outcomes. You can’t control what’s happening in your life, but you can choose to respond in a way that will be productive and help you make the most of your current and future circumstances.

Important celestial events are operating at the 2023 New Year for you to take note of. Pay especial attention to the dates for each of these events as they will have a marked influence for how things will unfold in 2023.

What house is Aquarius located in your chart? This is where you’ll be experiencing revelations regarding a certain area of your life. For instance, if the New Moon is happening in your 7th house you may be making a new commitment, agreement, or contract that will have a tremendous influence on your long- term future. You may also need to let go of an old way of doing something, an old friend, associate, commitment that you’ve outgrown that’s passed its shelf life.

Also check for planets and points in your 11th House (ruled by Aquarius). Remember Aquarius rules the 11th house, so this area of your life may also be affected.

Finally check where your Uranus is located in your astrology chart. This house may also be affected by this Aquarius New Moon's influence.

October 30, 2022

Mars Stations Retrograde on October 30 at 25° Gemini and Stations Direct on January 12 at 8° Gemini. There can be tremendous confusion with airing of different points of view. Mars Retrograde is a review of actions taken based upon much misinformation, gossip and hearsay. This period looks ungrounded and volatile. All the air from Gemini fans the flames of the Mars fire.

There can be quite a ruckus, but due to its Retrograde motion not much may come in long term consequences for actions taken in the 3D world. However, at the subconscious and intuitive levels in the 5D world, you have an opportunity to shift your mindset and begin to listen more deeply to your own intuitive voice. Now is an extraordinary time to reprogram your mind with the intuitive and spiritual impulses of Neptune in Pisces. This is also a significant period of time for clearing the air of tensions.

A full moon always brings completion and something worth celebrating. Go big, but take it slow, and be willing to do the work necessary to achieve your goals and objectives. Look to your own self for the self-approval you may seek from outside. Stepping into and shining your own light for others to see is encouraged. Take responsibility for yourself and what shows up for you and let go of any self-doubt. You must trust that you are worthy of the success that urges you from within to accomplish great things. Let go of past disappointments.

A time begins now (Venus Stationary Retrograde) when you start to review (and let go of) what you previously valued and reassess what matters most to you. A time of deep assessment of your values brings tremendous benefits in the future.

New societal structures replacing the old and worn out ones can be celebrated now. It’s also a time when structures that have passed their usefulness and need replacing can be recognized.

Your feeling of safety is now very much related to your home, the family and related activities such as childcare, nourishment and nurturing of your roots. You may be more prone to fluctuation of your emotional moods. Feeling depressed can result from thinking too much about things related to childhood issues, or self-care matters. Rather, instead, take some kind of affirmative action. Your perceptions about the world are far more emotional and personal than usual. Now can be a time for some sort of new start in your home and family. Perhaps you’ll be buying new furnishing, or welcoming the arrival of a baby into your family. With Venus and Chiron Stationing Retrograde, you may be reassessing your values and what brings you pleasure, as well as old wounds can surface for healing.

Celestial Challenges

You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now.

  • Moon Sextile Saturn (Rx)
  • Moon Conjunct Jupiter (Rx) Opposes Mercury Conjunct Mars
  • Moon Opposes Mercury Conjunct Mars

The Taurus Partial Lunar Eclipse in Taurus brings issues of self-respect to the surface. Your emotional need for stability gets challenged by the pressures building for necessary change that needed to have happened yesterday. In Taurus your feeling of self-worth comes from material things and the seeking of material things. The Taurus Eclipse brings issues related to your genuine sense of self-worth not predicated on material values, but rather love for spiritual values like love of home, family, country and the world at large. You may be getting a crash course in self-acceptance for who you are, not what you have. A tremendous opportunity for the cleansing and release of false values.

Key Essential Oil to Use: Ylang Ylang III
