New Moon in Libra, September 25, 2022

Yes, the greater good! Let’s have that!

Libra Seeking Balance

It looks like we’ll be learning about how to bring balance back into our lives on the New Moon at 02° 49’ Libra on 25 September 2022, 02:55 PM PDT. There are two important oppositions on this lunation, one featuring the luminaries in Libra opposing Jupiter in Aries and the other is a Mercury-Venus conjunction in Virgo opposing Neptune in Pisces. The good thing about both these oppositions is they are in signs that are more inclined to work together than fight it out. These oppositions do give this New Moon a Full Moon feel too.

The opposition with the Libra luminaries opposing Jupiter in Aries benefits from Libra’s mediating skills and Jupiter’s generous spirit. We may need to set clear guidelines before getting into the serious stage of any negotiations in order to achieve an equitable outcome. Being straightforward and honest in our intentions is also critical. Since Jupiter…

Full Moon in Pisces, September 10, 2022

leave a comment »

A Full Moon in dreamy Pisces perfects Saturday Sept 10, 2022 at 5:59 am EDT @17Pis41. An early one, folks!

Libra Seeking Balance

Right now we can use some lessons in how to live with changes, and the Full Moon at 17° 41’ Pisces on 10 September 2022, 03:00 AM PDT is here to help us. The master of change, Uranus in Taurus, is sextile the Pisces Moon and trine the Virgo Sun. Or perhaps I should say Uranus, the instigator of change. Sometimes when the fixed signs rule the sky, we forget change is happening constantly and when the mutable signs return to dominance, we can get swept away because we forgot where we left our boat.

There are two different styles for preparing to handle changes on this Full Moon, Virgo and Pisces. Pisces would tell us to have faith and go with the flow, while Virgo is all for having a number of plans in place to choose from if necessary. Since Uranus in Taurus harmoniously aspects both luminaries, there…

gift of Summer

leave a comment »

Summer poetry from libramoon!

Year of Prophecies

Ride glorious waves of Summer reverie,
long, indulgent daylight, enchanted nights
awash with fun    
Ah to be a Summer gift — born on Sun’s warm rays a’smile,
a welcome lift to bask in, to adore.  Joined in dulcet cheer,
we rise in salutation, to celebrate, to feel
spirits soar.
Easy winds, breezy gush of summer rain
feeding the greedy young grains
growing along the plains.  Flowers of the storm
feeding the beasts of the field.
Exult in fecund season as heaven revealed.
Burn with hazy summer wine and dance,
feet connecting dust to sky.
Sing of Summer surf, held close to mystery.
Summers’ call of water and sand;
twilights of harmonic symphonies when Sun
entwines with green horizons.
scented summer secrets diffuse softly into twilight
unwinding carnival music, evening blooms, billowing out into gentle wind
remembrance of soft summer nights by the sea, by the…

FBI to Mar-a-Lago: a Venus-Pluto Link

leave a comment »

Since yesterday’s FBI search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida, some posts have been published on my Political Astrology site Stars Over Washington. Today I want to add a curious horoscope here, a bi-wheel of two horoscopes, actually. Now some folks may take exception to the combination shown, below, but regular readers of SO’W may not mind at all, particularly if they’ve read my many warnings via the Solar Eclipses in October 2022 (6 South) and April 2023 (7 North). Because history rhymes, as you know.

And so details concerning the planetary duo of Venus-Pluto are penned on the image along with a few other notes, the point being a cosmic time link between the two planets stretching from August 8, 2022, when the FBI entered and searched Mar-a-Lago, and the historical horoscope of the Third Reich. Anyone paying attention to US politics in the last few years should know that cult leader Trump has connections with Adolf’s Nazis, his unattainable “Aryan nation,” and his despotic desire for total control.

So here is the bi-wheel showing reciprocal links between Venus and Pluto, both planets associated with wealth and valuable possessions, and, when in league with one another, a formidable and intense combination of jealousy, envy, revenge, greed, and malevolent criminality:

Shared Summer Leaves

Plot keeps us moving
conflicts, obstacles
from concept to theme.
Show of our qualities,
characteristic strategies
how people change
dramatically, comedically,
through relationship or revelation
or how we resolutely refuse
to change despite ardent
Sitting in your kitchen
drinking wine and sharing plotlines
leading to the lives we share
here in safe eternity
I feel your joys, moments of doubt,
your poignant tragedies and resilient reclamations
Your brilliant smile, contagious laugh,
ebullient embrace carry me beyond
enduring sorrows.
A fallen sparrow nurtured,
a flower coaxed to glory,
a simple girlhood story spanning wars,
historic empathies.  Cuttings
cultured from days before language
continue chains
of synchronicity, plotlines leading me
to find
our brief exchange
Strands of interactive dna
move us forward into more complete
Sitting here, in the cluttered fan-cooled kitchen
while a storm-brewing wind…

Full Moon in Capricorn, July 13, 2022

Valuable insights concerning the Capricorn Full Moon and powerful Pluto:

Libra Seeking Balance

Nothing like having Pluto in Capricorn conjoining the Moon on this Full Moon at 21° 21’ Capricorn on 13 July 2022, 11:38 AM PDT to get our attention. Not only that but Uranus in Taurus and Neptune in Pisces both harmoniously aspect the luminaries. While the presence of the outer planets suggests there are serious changes in the works, this time we have a little more say in the matter which is always a good thing.

One of the keys to working with these implacable energies is Mercury in Cancer conjoining the Cancer Sun and closely sextile Uranus in Taurus. Mercury in Cancer blends thought and intuition seamlessly, unlike very mental Mercury in Gemini. Non-linear thinking is what Mercury in the water signs does best. Dump as much good data as can be found in, go do a “chop wood, haul water” thing and let the information percolate. Wonderful solutions…

Astro-Notes on Jean-Jacques Rousseau

To read an astro-portrait of Jean-Jacques Rousseau you may want to check out today’s post at my general astrology blog, Jude Cowell Astrology. The novelist-philosopher of the European Enlightenment was very much a creative Moon-Neptune Conjunction sort of fellow, but the pairing can also denote major emotional problems, such as delusions and/or hallucinations.

Even the fact that his mother died in childbirth may be described by loss (Neptune) of the mother (Moon). So, if you’re curious, here’s a link to my freshly published post on Rousseau!

love as war

Writing that expands and deepens:

Year of Prophecies

love as war
Cross Purpose
At time’s crossroads, Reason drowns
in rage, pain,
radiated rain, treasonous air.
Weary of care, of punishing,
bottomless anger, of sobbing men
robbed of their right to give birth.
Taken from Mama’s warmth, from
the cave, to play brave.
And it’s ladies’ choice as you squirm
in fool’s corner.
Such a chore — kissing at this
and that for a chance to score
the shame, the blame from stuck-out
tongues, the bloody laughter
“I could bite off that little thing — make
you squat to pee.”
Wired to fight, at any cost,
because, of course, the Cross proclaims
“We’re right.  They are inherently wrong.”
“Those below must be taught to obey
our superior tools, to be broken,
that we may ride.”
Against our better fate, our race divided
along strict lines, by difference
nature instilled to make us strong

The Heart of the Huber Method: the central core

An in depth consideration of the Huber method of chart interpretation:

Astrological Psychology and Asklepios Connection

Central core (2)


“The true essence of the human being is directed by the circle in the middle of the horoscope.  This is where we look for the potential of man.” (Huber,Bruno and Louise, p. 21. The Astrological Houses).  When an individual is born according to this theory, this circle begins to beam energies radiating in all directions which first meet the aspect lines of the overall aspect picture and then forms angular aspects to the planets that connect with the core.   See below my chart which has red lines running to the core or center.  The aspect patterns formed by this pattern forms the circuit plan for vital energies in the individual.


Psychologically, the aspect patterns form the beginning of self awareness which defines the direction life is to take, the interests, the essential concerns of life, and what one wants to make of his life. ( Hubers, The Astrological…

New Moon in Gemini, May 30, 2022

Expect “Conflicting messages”! This is similar to what I was thinking: mixed messages!

Libra Seeking Balance

Gemini’s inherent duality is visible on this New Moon at 09° 03’ Gemini on 30 May 2022, 04:30 AM PDT. On one hand we have the Gemini luminaries sextile the volatile Mars-Jupiter conjunction in Aries, and on the other, Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, is in Taurus and is sextile Neptune in Pisces, square Saturn in Aquarius and trine Pluto in Capricorn. What this suggests is we are likely to be bombarded with conflicting messages!

We need to remember there are no “bad” signs, aspects or planets. The Gemini luminaries sextile Mars-Jupiter in Aries is a bold, brash combination designed to get our blood moving and inspire us to take action. What we have occurring on this New Moon is more about timing than anything. Mercury is still retrograde in Taurus and won’t go direct until June 3. We can always ignore this and move forward with our exciting plans and that…
