NEW MOON ASTROLOGY Book . . . . . New Moon Times explained

Question from reader of New Moon Astrology:FROM: MiaI realized that some of the dates and hour sprinted in Jan Spiller's book "New Moon Astrology" are not matching what the internet post sometimes. Can you help me with this please?Stephanie's answer:It does state in the book that all times are Eastern Standard Time. So any months on Daylight Saving Time (March - early November) will be an hour earlier in the book. But there are other odd discrepancies of a few minutes when comparing Maynard to the book. I am not sure how the book tables were created - possibly from an Ephemeris? At any rate, I remember this issue coming up one of the first years I worked for the site when I worked on the New Moon column in advance, before the Maynard Calendar came out. I had to go back and readjust the times to match the Maynard [...]

WHAT IS MERCURY RETROGRADE? Is Mercury Retrograde happening right now? When is the next Mercury Retrograde?

THE PHYSICAL PHENOMENA OF MERCURY RETROGRADE What is Mercury Retrograde?  Mercury Retrograde cycles occur approximately 3 times a year, with a 3-1/2 week duration each time. What is physically occurring is that Mercury is slowing down in its elliptical orbit around the Sun, and because the Earth continues to spin on its axis, to us it appears that Mercury is moving backward. When this astronomical phenomena occurs, there are predictable, marked effects in our experience on Planet Earth. HOW MERCURY RETROGRADE AFFECTS US How does Mercury Retrograde affect us?  In astrology, the planet Mercury rules the conscious, logical mind. When the planet Mercury ‘goes backward,’ our thinking can also start to ‘go backward’ and become muddled. We tend to be in a more reflective mode. During the time of this phenomena, we all experience certain psychological effects in common: inattention, confusion, reversals of decision and then getting back on the [...]

What is a Void of Course Moon?  When the Moon is Void of Course it has passed its last major aspect to a Planet and has not yet entered the next Sign. This phenomena can occur for only a few minutes or it may last a day or two. It depends on the Sign the Moon is in and the Sign locations of the other Planets. EFFECTS OF THE VOID OF COURSE MOON What are the effects of a Void of Course Moon?  There is a spacy mood in the atmosphere… a lack of mental clarity and feeling of being ‘disconnected.’ Activities initiated during the Void of Course Moon are often met with confusion and unexpected results that are not to our advantage. During a Void of Course Moon, people lack a sense of direction and tend to make decisions that are off base and later need to be reevaluated. [...]

What does it mean to have many Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) and Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) in my astrology chart?

Air + Earth: The Planets in your Chart that are Air or Earth Signs are DRIVEN BY THE MIND AIR SIGNS:  GEMINI / LIBRA / AQUARIUS EARTH SIGNS:  TAURUS / VIRGO / CAPRICORN What does it mean to have many Air and Earth Signs in your chart? Air and Earth are both elements of the mental body. AIR is the abstract component of the mind and rules ideas, theories, mathematics, music, brilliance and sociability. EARTH is the practical portion of the mind, which is more concerned with tangible results than with intangible ideas. People with many Planets in Air Signs and few in Earth Signs tend to be very mental and intelligent, but not very practical. They may put a lot of energy into creating something, and then lose interest and move on to a new activity or project without reaping the tangible rewards of what they have already done. [...]

What does it mean to have many Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) in my astrology chart?

Fire + Water: The Planets in your Chart that are in Fire or Water Signs are DRIVEN BY THE EMOTIONS  FIRE SIGNS: ARIES / LEO / SAGITTARIUS WATER SIGNS:  CANCER / SCORPIO / PISCES What does it mean to have many Fire and Water Signs in your chart?  Fire and Water are both elements of the emotional body. FIRE is the outward expression of emotion – passion, drama, intensity and enthusiasm – while WATER is the inner experience of emotion, especially awareness of the impact we have on the feelings of others and their emotional impact on us. Having more Planets located in the emotional realm (Fire and Water signs) indicates an individual who reaches conclusions, makes decisions and is driven to act more on the basis of their emotions rather than from mental considerations. Which are the FIRE SIGNS? ARIES, LEO AND SAGITTARIUS What are the Fire Signs?  Although [...]

PLUTO in Astrology

PLUTO in astrology represents the urge for self-mastery and fearlessness - the process of alchemically transforming fear into clear expression in all life situations. Wherever PLUTO is found in your chart you feel the urge to exert power. However, if you unconsciously use power to try and force your own way, you will end up feel powerless in that area of life, as others will resist you. PLUTO invites us to learn the correct use of personal power - to master each challenge and emerge fearless and effective. The Sign where your Pluto is located shows an aspect of life in which you naturally feel powerful and have the urge to express yourself.  For instance, if your Pluto is in Cancer, you have a strong impulse to create a home, family, and base of security.  If Pluto is in Leo, the urge for creative self-expression and romance is strong, With [...]

NEPTUNE in Astrology

NEPTUNE in astrology represents the longing to become One with everything in a state of total trust and love. Wherever NEPTUNE is found in your chart you will not be able to see things clearly, from a realistic/materialistic point of view. It’s like you are wearing rose-colored glasses and see the ideal potential of what could be, rather than the nitty-gritty reality of the current situation. These are also areas in which you can experience bliss and a feeling of Oneness with life. While Neptune is idealistic, it can also engender areas of self- deception that can prevent us from seeing the possibility of creating the true ideal.  Because Neptune spends 14 years in each Sign, its Sign influence is generational - your peers will be sharing the same idealistic imprint that you do. The Sign your Neptune is in shows the domain in which you instinctively seek the ideal.  [...]
