Full Moon In Aquarius

August 11, 2022, 9:35pm EDT

What Comes Into View

As the Moon continues its travels through the phases of Leo season, we arrive at the Full Moon in Aquarius. The peak of the cycle, the Full Moon symbolizes the blossom of the seed you planted to show appreciation at the New Moon July 28th. Here, it refers to extending your heart-centered viewpoint to include the greater collective of humanity. What lesson have you learned in the past two weeks that now comes into view?

Open Heart, Open Mind

In a lot of ways, the axis between Leo and Aquarius illuminates the necessity of staying connected to your heart while thinking about how to contribute to a better life for everyone. Air sign Aquarius holds lofty ideals yet subscribes to a problem-solving mindset, inventing solutions ahead of its time.   Sometimes Aquarius moves too far into the conceptual realm and loses the ability to relate to others. When you walk the path of self-knowledge, you begin to realize the irony that feeling separate is a shared human experience. The Leo Sun helps bring this back into balance, by emphasizing the importance of warmly showing your appreciation for others, which makes people feel seen and included.

In Practice

The Full Moon occurs right at the peak of a second wave of Leo season’s intensity, revealing the cracks in the foundation of our current systems. Our world needs our unflinching vision and honesty as we face the truth of our various predicaments. Now is the time to serve as a witness for other people as they grapple with their challenges. Be willing to create new alliances with unlikely accomplices. Welcome breakthrough insights and radically different viewpoints. Find common ground with others through intellectual pursuits. Solutions come through perseverance and commitment. Using your Rising (or Sun) sign, read below to see where this Full Moon impacts your natal chart.

Aries: Open your heart to loved ones. Feel a sense of freedom as you receive support from your unique community as you give.

Taurus: Celebrate the deep roots of love in your family. Recognize how this sturdy base gives rise to a sense of freedom in your vocation.

Gemini: Move through your immediate environment with generosity. Notice how this expands your humanitarian perspective.

Cancer: Offer yourself unconditional love, foibles and all. Feel able to draw clear, respectful boundaries with others.

Leo: Invest in your own self-development. Watch how your primary relationships evolve as you commit to a next step.

Virgo: Recognize your capacity for spiritual growth and forgiveness. Let your daily practices grant you emotional liberation.

Libra: Celebrate the success of others. Notice how your own desire and inspiration for creative projects increases.
Scorpio: Tune into the most enjoyable parts of your career. Let this bring in a deeper appreciation for your family life.

Sagittarius: Enjoy gaining wisdom from people from other cultures. See inventive solutions in your own local nooks with a fresh eye.

Capricorn: Be generous with other peoples’ intense emotional struggles and darker sides. Let this help free you from your own emotional struggles and see your value from a higher plane.

Aquarius: Shine a bright joyful light into your primary relationships. Let this serve as a guide to express your own unique you.

Pisces: Find a sense of playfulness within your daily practices. Notice how this illuminates your connection to the divine.

Knowing Yourself Inside And Out

Knowing Yourself Inside And Out

Leo Season: First Quarter Moon In Scorpio

August 5, 2022, 7:06 am EDT

Conflict And Growth

Through each zodiac season, the Moon phases can be used to track your progress on anything you are working on. The Moon’s position relative to the Sun defines the phases and serves as a visible monthly calendar. Just a week into the new cycle, the waxing first quarter Moon appears with its face divided into two halves. The sharp contrast between light and dark suggests a time of conflict and growth. In this case, the broody Scorpio Moon pits against the bright Leo Sun.

Knowing Yourself Inside And Out

Studying the contrast between fiery Leo and watery Scorpio teaches you the importance of knowing yourself inside and out. Recall that radiant Leo’s path involves living from the heart, in order to lead the way with confidence, generosity, and appreciation for others. Scorpio, on the other hand, delves deep into complex subterranean emotional territory. Like a detective, it prefers to stay out of the spotlight so that it may examine the root cause. When you persist and wrangle these two potent energies to work together, you find the confidence to express your creative self with a full awareness of your depth. In essence, you can’t live fully from the heart until you have reckoned with the deeper emotional content that drives you. Only through doing the necessary work can you be an open channel to express appreciation and truly feel gratitude.

In Practice

Leo season presents two waves of significant challenge, with the quarter moon occurring right before the second wave. With the Moon in Scorpio, be willing to shed the skin of old emotional habits that have outlived their usefulness. Examine your motives before engaging with others. If you feel a lot of angst, consider burning off energy with intense physical pursuits, such as mountain biking. No matter what, find an outlet for your feelings so you can welcome the information they provide. Difficult feelings are signposts, meant to guide you in your growth. Harness the power of the Leo Sun to stay present to whatever arises. Remember, we often shine the brightest in our hardest moments.

Venus Williams – Astrology of the Natal Chart: Astrobiography with AstroPath

Film: King Richard

 

Venus Williams, Tennis Star
Gemini Sun, Leo Moon, Libra Rising (Air and Fire)

According to Venus Williams’ chart, her outer personality is characterized by the need for balance and diplomacy, while also struggling with being defined by her rivals.  At best this allows for space from emotional reaction, and at worst sees her giving away her power to others.  She exhibits a surprisingly profound desire to test herself against others in the pursuit of transformation.  (Libra Rising; Pluto in the 1st House)

Despite being recognized internationally for her excellence in tennis, Venus’ chart suggests someone who desires to be seen for her intellect and her ability to communicate, and who would like to get positive feedback for her words and ideas, particularly in group settings. She is clever, witty, and wise.  She clearly had to grow up fast and learn to cope with intense pressure from an early age. Additionally, there is a strong emphasis on the importance of her relationships.  Interestingly, the planet Venus plays a prominent role in her horoscope, though its placement indicates hidden introversion.  (Leo Moon in the 11th house, square Uranus; Gemini Sun; Gemini Venus Retrograde in 9th House, Ruler of Libra Ascendant)

On the whole, we see a person who strongly desires connection and camaraderie, and has a great ability to instruct others on the value of true friendship, through sharing her skills and her story.  She certainly has the tools to accomplish this, and find it deeply satisfying.

New Moon In Leo Meditation On Gratitude

Show Your Appreciation

At the New Moon in Leo, plant a seed to show your appreciation. Leo encourages you to express your most radiant self and live your life as if it were a pageant, with you starring in the lead role. The trick is to fully engage with the creative drama of life, while celebrating all the others who make it possible. After all, theater doesn’t happen without co-conspirators, directors, producers, and, most importantly, an appreciative audience.

Share Gratitude

This New Moon sets the stage to share your gratitude for those who support you, with big effect. The highest octave of Leo occurs with acts of generosity. As we approach the first of two intense energy waves of Leo season, be aware of the potential to feel aggravated, anxious, or even explosive. Embrace breakthroughs yet respect the need for limits. Give yourself permission to slow down and feel the earth beneath your feet by August 2.

Sense Of Purpose

Not only does Leo season teach us about self-confidence and appreciation, it also connects us to our core sense of purpose via the astrological rulership scheme. In astrology, each sign is governed by at least one planet. In Leo’s case, it relates to the all-powerful Sun and thereby illuminates an exceedingly important area of your life. (Yes, I realize the Sun is a star, not a planet. Please go here for more on that subject.) In this way, Leo helps you understand which life topics require your complete attention and participation. When you work to fulfill this purpose, you illuminate the way for others.

Where You Shine

Using your Rising sign, read below to learn what area of your life the Leo New Moon ushers into view. This part of your life plays an important role in expressing your core essence and illuminates what you have to offer to others. Consider what supports you now, and who you wish to most appreciate.

With Aries Rising, you shine through your creative pursuits and willingness to take risks. Show your appreciation to children and others who put you in touch with your playful energy. Recognize your vivacious authentic self as a source of support.

With Taurus Rising, you shine in your ancestral line and from your prodigious ability to be rooted. Show appreciation to your parents, lineage, and family. Recognize the tremendous source of support you get from your spiritual practices.

With Cancer Rising, you shine through your ability to value yourself and in how you handle money. Appreciate yourself by being willing to spend some money on your self-care. Recognize how your profession supports your self-worth and finances.

With Leo Rising, you shine like a star whether or not you know it. Give yourself appreciation for your commitment to being authentic. Recognize your teachers as a source of support.

With Virgo Rising, you shine in your ability to develop a deep sense of compassion for the suffering of others. Be willing to appreciate the difficulties and isolation that have guided you to this place of acceptance. Recognize the support that comes from shared resources and workable boundaries.

Amanda Gorman: Fierce Empathy

AstroBiographies of Inspiring People

Born: March 7, 1998

AstroBiography: Astrology of Amanda Gorman

Reading “The Hill We Climb” at the 2020 Presidential Inauguration

1st National Youth Poet Laureate

Activist, Feminist, Harvard Attendee

 

What She Is Known For

Amanda Gorman became the First National Youth Poet Laureate and read her poetry before the nation at 21 years old, a stunning achievement.  This only becomes more dramatic when you learn that she had a speech impediment as a young child, which she overcame with focus, hard work, and diligent practice.  At age 16, she declared herself a feminist, began community organizing, and wrote poetry in direct response Dr. Ford’s testimony at Kavanaugh’s hearing and Trump’s election.  This rising star’s burning question, after receiving accolades and fame, is “What am I going to do with my access?”

 Astrology Highlights of Her Horoscope

Amanda Gorman displays a Grand Trine in Water, which illustrates the ability to generate a lovely flow of creative, empathetic, and sensitive energy.  The Pisces Sun moves easily with the Moon in the protective and fierce sign of cardinal Cancer, and both of these connect to the wounded healer Chiron, in Scorpio.  Taskmaster Saturn squares the Moon, showing someone who grew up quickly and applied serious effort to all of her undertakings.

 Her Midheaven (MC) in the communicative and teaching sign of Gemini reveals how she appears from the public’s viewpoint.  This points to the planet Mercury, just barely hanging on in very late poetic Pisces.  It makes a bridge to Mars, powerfully situated in home warrior sign of Aries.  This warrior holds the mighty pen as a weapon for truth in the fight against racism and misogyny, and the poetry that emerges also holds the promise of transcendence (Neptune influence).  In addition, her chart indicates a strong value system rooted in the desire for social change (Venus, Neptune, Uranus in Aquarius).  Her ability to write beautiful poetry that both protects and cuts to the heart brings this astrological symbolism to life. 

Finally, with her Ascendant sign in Virgo, the planet Mercury also rules her more personal affairs, indicating that the person on stage is also the person her good friends see.  The chart suggests a thoughtful and sensitive dreamer who listens and wields a strong ability to follow through and makes things happen.

Leo Season: Live From The Heart

Live From The Heart

Sun Gallivants Into Leo

July 22 – August 22, 2022

In these zodiac sign seasonal articles, I explore the way the signs hold powerful kernels of knowledge for human living. In this viewpoint, rather than suggesting that the zodiac is “doing something to us,” we see instead that the signs offer a template for growing consciously and living in harmony. I hope to give you some clues about the month ahead so that you can be aware and decide how to best use the energy presented in your life.

Creative Self-Expression

At an essential level, fixed fire Leo relates to creative self-expression. Leo at its best shows up in royal regalia, leading the way with joy, confidence, and generosity. The sign of Leo powerfully equates with the radiant Sun, gracing us with heat, light, and a wild sense of being alive. The pompous pride of Leo’s shadow side merely indicates one who has lost connection with their higher selves and acts from a place of insecurity.

Core Purpose

Because of its connection to the Sun through the astrological rulership scheme, Leo season provides each of us with an opportunity to consider our core purpose for being here. Rather than getting too serious, Leo instead invites you to participate fully with life. Recognize your loved ones, play in the beautiful places of nature, and live from the heart in all that you do. Be generous and magnanimous.

July 22-August 1: Balance Your Thinking, Brace For Growth

This year’s Leo season boasts two prominent and successive peaks of intensity, crashing and then receding like waves against the shore. At the beginning, with the Moon in affable Gemini, the mood is easy, sociable, and chatty. Then on July 26, the first difficult wave begins with a challenge that may appear as aggravation, a reality check, or anxiety that impacts your mental state. See if you can question your thought process with a playful attitude, like a kitten batting at a ball of yarn, rather than getting caught up in drama or battles. Use the New Moon on July 28 to express appreciation.

The wave continues to gain momentum until it crests on August 1, when assertive Mars and upstart Uranus join in Taurus to kick off a two-year cycle of intense action, suggesting continued upset to the societal status quo. Use this dynamo in your own life to break up stagnant energy, which amounts to radically tilling the soil to make room for new growth. Fortunately, the most beneficial astrological contact occurs the day before, setting the stage to dramatically expand your connection to joy at the same time.

August 2-7: Cool Off

Things quickly cool off, taking us into a period of calm and rejuvenation from August 2 to 7. Take a pause and find ways restore yourself in the way that summer allows, by spending hot days near water and hydrating. With Mercury entering Virgo, you find yourself getting more easily grounded and thinking about how you can help. With the Moon in Scorpio, ponder the benefits of staying in the shade.

August 7-14: Persist And Awaken

The second wave stirs August 7, as responsibilities take precedent, hampering the summer fun. We also can’t escape the distressing problems caused by the lack of acceptance and kindness we see at the cultural level. Take this time in your personal life to check that your actions are well intended for social benefit. As the Full Moon comes into view on August 11, something we urgently need to awaken to stares us in the face. A feeling of being controlled, suppressed, or contained sets in on August 14. Use your inner resource of persistence to stay with this stifling feeling, as a little later in the day, a path that can transform this struggle suddenly opens. The key is to stay present.

August 14-22: Laughter And Connection

After August 14, this second wave begins to temper, though with Moon in daredevil Aries, you still want to take risks. The focus soon becomes more concrete and practical, giving you time to step back and relax. As you approach life with a calmer mind, you can be open to new ideas. Make plans with dear friends for laughter and connection on August 18. Expand your notion of yourself as a positive force. The season winds down with a touch of the transcendent, elevating your thinking and allowing you to see the way forward.

Serena Williams – Astrology of the Natal Chart: Astrobiography with AstroPath

Documentary:  Serena

Film: King Richard

 

Tennis Star Serena Williams’ Chart Analysis

Libra Sun, Virgo Moon, Taurus Rising (Air and Earth)

According to Serena Williams’ chart, her outer personality is characterized by the need to be resourceful and get tangible results, through physical and material means.  The down sides may be stubbornness, materialism, and an inability to shift quickly.  Her chart suggests that she may get stuck in this pattern easily, but ultimately can break through complacency and unconscious habits in a way that inspires others.  In balance, she’s very productive and steadfast, and out of balance she can really dig her heels in. (Taurus Rising, Chiron in the 1st House)

Like her sister, Serena’s chart has a prominent focus on the planet Venus, indicating the importance of relationships.  However, in her case, this plays out as a deep desire for intense intimate connection, and describes the need to have a partner who meets her need for material security and emotional depth.  The chart suggests a difficult journey to find equilibrium with partners, including her sister Venus, though her tenacity is not to be underestimated!  Her ability to focus on her own physical excellence through tennis provides her with grounding and an outlet for her intense feelings.  Note that Libra is the sign of rivals, who have helped her establish her roots.  (Scorpio Venus in the 7th House, square Leo Mars in 4th house; Libra stellium in the 6th House)

The chart suggests a huge capacity to work very hard, perhaps too hard at times. Her need for competition and the daily rigors of exercise overpowers her ability to put her family first at times. She shows her love through practical, helpful and tangible methods and has an emotional need for precision.  Overall, we see an implacable, diplomatic focus fueled by a powerful need for intensity.  (Virgo Moon in the 5th House, Scorpio Venus ruler of the Ascendant)

Make The Mature Choice

Make The Mature Choice

Full Moon in Capricorn

July 13, 2022, 2:37pm EDT

Maturity

Two weeks ago, the New Moon in Cancer suggested you plant a seed to apply tender loving self-care in the midst life’s chaos. Now at the Full Moon, notice the impact of being responsible for your own emotional nourishment. Observe the maturity it takes to seek solitude in order to understand what you need.

Integrity

Cardinal earth sign Capricorn is symbolized by the mythical sea goat, a creature that can both effortlessly scale the mountain heights and dive down to the mountain base on the ocean floor. In using astrology to better understand yourself, the Capricorn Full Moon helps you ascertain your ability to build a supportive structure, hold yourself to a discipline, and move up the ladder of your ambitions. During this process, value most highly your commitment to integrity and self-mastery.

Inner Authority

When out of balance, Capricorn’s worst characteristics loom in the form of authoritarianism and the desire to dominate and control others. Certainly we are witnessing a time of tyranny, when the mighty few see fit to strip away individual rights, especially from those with the least amount of power. Rather than accepting this unbalanced shadow version, instead use the perspective of Capricorn to reckon with your own inner authority and suss out your relationship to integrity. Employ your depth of character to galvanize others for social benefit, without the need to dominate.

Make The Mature Choice

Using your Rising (or Sun) sign, consider where in life you need to raise your consciousness and make the mature choice. Where do you need to stabilize the roots of your endeavors in order to follow through on your commitments? Take some time in solitude to listen inwardly and then execute with full effort, without the need for applause or approval. Remember to continue nourishing your emotional self while still in the throes of Cancer season.

Aries: Make the mature choice in your professional life. Nurture your roots and recognize your livelihood as your major contribution to the betterment of others.

Taurus: Make the mature choice to support independent, critical thinking in yourself and others. Nurture your daily curiosity, as it awakens you to your true self.

Gemini: Make the mature choice as you deal with other people’s issues. Nurture your self-worth and allow struggle to wake you up to compassion.

Cancer: Make the mature choice by stepping up in your one-on-one relationships. Be sure to balance solitude with time amongst your community of friends.

Leo: Make the mature choice and commit to daily routines. Nurture your relationship to the divine and let your professional work contribute to the betterment of others.

Virgo: Make the mature choice and commit to your creative process. Get support from your community by bravely sharing. Embrace how this growth grants you new wisdom.

Libra: Make the mature choice and find anchor with your family. Let your profession nourish you. Setting healthy boundaries provides an awakening.

Scorpio: Make the mature choice by communicating clearly. Nourish yourself with independent thinking. Let your primary relationships serve as a source of awakening.

Sagittarius: Make the mature choice with your money and values. Nurture yourself through setting healthy emotional boundaries against the judgment of others. Find awakening through simple grounding practices.

Capricorn: Make the mature choice by embracing your authentic self. Nourish yourself and your relationships. Awaken through creativity and risk-taking.

Aquarius: Make the mature choice and commit to selfless service. Nourish yourself with good food and healthy practices. Awakening is your anchor.

Nourish And Refresh: New Moon In Cancer

New Moon In Cancer

June 28, 2022, 10:52pm EDT

Find the New Moon In Cancer meditation below:

Nourish And Refresh

At the New Moon in Cancer, embrace the opportunity to heal through nurturing yourself on a new level. Like a seed buried in the soil, we crack open and grow in the magical healing presence of water. What will nourish and refresh you for the sake of your growth?

A Source Of Personal Power

In astrology, the Moon holds court over the sign of Cancer and symbolizes the emotional self. Part of the ancient limbic system of the brain, our emotions hold the stories of our existence from birth to now, affecting how we perceive the world. Even our most forgotten stories of past live on in our bodies, only to re-emerge as emotional triggers in our current relationships. You can release these old emotions by witnessing, accepting, and soothing them when they become visible in your physical body. As you accept and integrate these vulnerabilities, they provide solid inner footing and become a source of personal power.

Test Of Self-Knowledge

We live in a culture that denies the importance of emotions. As a result of this denial, we see violence and aggression dominating the news, especially in the USA. It is an act of courage to reckon with your vulnerabilities in such an environment. In your quest to confront unconscious areas of your psyche, notice any tendency toward easy self-righteous outrage. Instead, approach this prospect as a test of self-knowledge and work to establish empathy for others.

You And Your Relationships

Wherever Cancer falls in your natal chart highlights a vulnerable area that plays a crucial role in your ability to have meaningful relationships. Use your Rising (or Sun) sign to meet this area with the kind and tender attitude of a mother with a newborn. Be prepared to hold, soothe, sing, and rock the parts of you that want to howl. Nourish, hydrate, and restore yourself.

Aries: Focus your nurturing, loving attention on your family and home. As you recognize the emotional difficulties that stemmed from your early home life, find the courage to stand up for yourself.

Taurus: Nurture your ability to communicate your most vulnerable feelings. Be especially cognizant of hidden anger fueling angst. Instead, find the courage to face your suffering.

Gemini: Your vulnerability regards how you value yourself, and may surface in financial matters. Be gentle with yourself inwardly while finding the courage to receive love from your community.

Cancer: Make sure you have enough time alone to nurture yourself. Recognize your need to seek the deep emotional connection. As you do this, find the courage to take a bold steps in your vocation.

Leo: Access your deepest emotional content through solitude, retreats in nature, and selfless service. As you find the courage to face your vulnerability, you dramatically open your mind to a source of wisdom.

Virgo: Your vulnerability appears in group settings. Instead, receive the love your community has to offer. Find the courage to trust your ability to set appropriate boundaries with others.

Libra: Cultivate love through your professional life. At the same time, remember that it’s ok to be vulnerable at work. Stand your ground in your partnerships for the sake of healthy independence.

Scorpio: The inner journey to your deep emotional realms provides a potent source of wisdom. Be fierce in protecting your daily routines, as they keep your health moving in the right direction.

Sagittarius: The more you know yourself on the emotional level, the better you can navigate other people’s baggage. This frees you to love others unconditionally and maintain deep relationships.

Capricorn: Your vulnerability appears in your most intimate partnerships. It takes a great deal of courage to establish your own inner ground. As you heal yourself, you find yourself capable of profound emotional intimacy with others.

Aquarius: Your vulnerabilities come out in how you take care of your health. Establish solid routines with enough solitude to keep you on an even keel. Use your voice to bravely state what you need.

Pisces: Nourish your inner child with plenty of playtime and creativity. When you feel nourished, you are able to deliver unconditional love to others. Find the courage to elevate your sense of self worth.

The Astrology Keynotes:  Transformational Power*

Princes’ astrology chart signifies a powerful, complex storyteller/poet with the heart of a mystic.  A raw force to be reckoned with, Prince harnessed his sexuality to mesmerize his audience and became famous nearly overnight.  His unyielding efforts paid off to create a truly sensational career, yet it was not without a price.  Part of his craft with music was wrapped up in an instability and sensitivity that turned toward addiction later in his life.  He had a phenomenal, drive and a reputation for recording his music unaided, without outside prompting or guidance, as most musicians tend to need. Not only did he change music itself, but he also challenged the recording industry itself for reaping profits and entrapping artists into unfair contracts.  His reputation suffered for this willingness to take on industry bigwigs.  Nonetheless, he continued to produce music and perform with a nearly transcendent creativity, often composing, arranging, and producing all of his own music.  Watch the video for more insights. 

What He Is Known For

Prince was born to a jazz singer (mother) and a songwriter (father) and wrote his first song when he was 7 years old (“Funk Machine”).  Prince had an amazing vocal range and ability to play many of the instruments in his recordings.  He went through many phases and chapters throughout his career and produced an impressive 39+ albums, not to mention numerous videos, singles, soundtracks, and other pieces of music.  Unfortunately, Prince died young of an accidental overdose when just 57 years old.
