Pisces New Moon forms Solar Eclipse from Space!

Celestial Path and Beyond

Well, I knew about today’s New Moon in Pisces, of course, but how cosmic and cool is this?

Space Weather News for Feb. 21, 2012

SOLAR ECLIPSE FROM SPACE: Earlier today the new Moon passed in front of the sun, producing a solar eclipse visible from space. High-resolution images of the event captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory are featured on the Feb. 21st edition of SpaceWeather News.


Check out a few astro-details I’ve posted concerning today’s New Moon @ 3Pis42, exact at 5:34 pm est with Regulus Rising in Washington DC. As you know, Regulus is one of the Royal Stars of Persia with one major caution: success if revenge is avoided–too bad over-reaching Washington and the Pentagon seldom if ever take such good advice.


New Moon in Leo 8.20.09

Whenever a New Moon is in playful, adoration-loving Leo, there promises to be a happy occasion on someone’s menu.

Lots of movie viewings and rentals will be perpetrated the weekend of August 22, I suspect, for Leo is the sign of The Showman.

MGM’s old insignia, the roaring Lion, tells of the film industry’s long-held love of dramatic Leo.

And one can hardly skip the ‘Images for Integration’ for this Fire-Fire blend for they are quite intriguing…

‘A child in an Edenic paradise builds a beautiful sandcastle in the sunshine with all the creations of nature in joyous attendance…In full pageantry, the new king is crowned before his kingdom.’ (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

Hmm…do you think August 20’s Leo New Moon (a new cycle of activity) may bring a coronation onto the global platter of entertainment? Or perhaps another sort of showy ceremony.

And Leo does so love entertainment, adoration, approval, and praise. But let us remember another archetypal tale associated with the royal sign of Leo the Lion – the Prodigal Son/Daughter.

Is there are any prodigals who should return home, the days after August 20’s New Moon are great times to do so for you’ll be following a natural and universal rhythm! It’s the pride of the Lion which must be tamed and a clearer view of reality entertained as one’s blessings are once again fully appreciated and forgiveness is asked and received.

Now, if you don’t mind a more political view of this powerful New Moon with its horoscope set for Washington, DC, try Stars Over Washington where I’ve recently posted the August 20 New Moon chart with brief details.

Discussion of this Leo lunation is encouraged, especially since at ’28Leo’ the New Moon is in an ‘astrological degree’ and conjuncts one of the Royal Stars of Persia, Regulus, ‘in the tip of the Leo’s tail’ as Bernadette Brady said to me in the Fixed Star Report she recorded concerning my day of birth!

The one thing to avoid with Regulus on the road to gaining the success a Royal Star portends?

Revenge. ‘Success if revenge is avoided.’

Oh dear. We all seem to fail that test quite regularly, don’t we?

First pics of out-of-solar-system planet!

Thanks to ye olde Hubble Telescope and a determined 8-year search, a planet outside our solar system has been captured on film amidst the dust of Fixed Star *Fomalhaut. Hope they got its good side!

Is synchronicity at work with the US Secondary Progressed Full Moon on Dec 25, 2008 having progressed Sun 4Pis10 – near Fomalhaut’s position? At the least, US Secondary Sun is highlighting Fomalhaut’s principles.

As one of the Royal Stars of Persia, Fomalhaut’s keyphrase is: ‘humanitarian and poetic.’

There’s also something of ‘the mystic’ with a sprinkle of fairy dust connected to Fomalhaut (Alpha Piscis Australis), but as with all four Royal Stars, success may be achieved only if challenges and trials are met, or a temptation is resisted.

The Star’s mystical flavor inspires lofty visions and ideals wherever this Star is linked in a chart, and of course we speak symbolically here since the progressed Sun and Moon (based on or issuing from the natal chart of the US), represents the evolutionary moment in time when Sun and Moon oppose one another by degree, minute, and second. So naturally, Secondary Progressed Moon clocks in at 4Vir10.

Because Sun = the leader, and Moon = the People — and with an opposition always indicating relationships, challenges, and awareness, then December 2008 sees George Bush still in place while the heir apparent waits in the wings all drenched in the fairy dust of a needful people’s expectations. 

Harmony is another component of Fomalhaut’s mystique, but gaining it may involve clashing with mainstream thought. The propagandizing media creates the illusion of a “mainstream” all the time, and mind control from the entertainment world and by news promoters is very prevalent and hard to shake off. Yet we must see clearly through the sparkly fairy dust!

And the digital TV transformation (‘divide’) in Feb 2009 is a good example of what the wheeler dealers are up to – spelled out for the entire world to see. As yet, we really don’t know how manipulative digital TV will be vs the television and media broadcasts we’re grown accustomed to.

Will their manipulation morph into something more subtle than before or will its mission become plain as the snoots on everyone’s faces? We know the TV touters have promised, at minimum, to deliver crystal clear images, haven’t they?

Yet somehow the purity of our ideals or dreams must be maintained.

To me this says that our leaders – governmental, financial, and otherwise – have blown the gig with their corrupt ways against Fomalhaut’s warnings, so it’s up to The People en masse (signified in any national chart by the Moon) to find and take a higher path if it’s been carelessly lost or purposefully obscured by the greedy, fraudulent wheeler dealers and movers’n’shakers who think themselves mightier than the rest.

I’ve blabbed previously about the US Secondary Full Moon (see Page in sidebar) and how it’s the culmination stage of the Sun-Moon cycle, and how it signifies that our ‘light’ has reached its peak and must lessen for a while.

Saturn, the Lesson-Bringer:

The August 2009 transit of Saturn to US natal Neptune, planet of ideals, dreams, and illusions, will be a toughy – it’s the ‘facing grim reality’ transit – plus the elected one with the rock star status is intimately involved – US natal Neptune is conjunct Obama’s natal Mars, the action principle.

So when you entertain the dream or hear of others’ high hopes resting upon Barack Obama’s presidential brow, you’ll know that Saturn will soon bring things down-to-earth – and That’s when the real work begins.

Well, that’s Fomalhaut in a nutshell, and the newly photographed trans-solar-system planet hiding in Fomalhaut’s dust is about to say: Howdy, Earth! for the very first time:

May 30’s US Progressed Moon to Ascendant: change of identity

It’s almost here–the progression of America’s Secondary (Sec) Moon 27Leo11 to Sec ASC occurring on May 30, 2008 (based on the July 4, 1776 natal chart, 5:10 pm LMT.) See article here:


This angular event is occurring during the Gibbous Lunar phase in preparation for our Sec Progressed Full Moon on December 24 (see Pages in sidebar, Progressed chart included) across the Virgo/Pisces axis.

The Gibbous phase is a period of asking, Why? and of working toward clarification of personal and socio-cultural issues; illumination is required because a goal is in view. This phase has been a good time for presidential campaign interests and questions. And most people may see this goal as evicting Bush from the White House, his lunar ‘home’ for lo these long long years.

Natally the Gibbous phase is shared by: FDR,  J.P. Morgan, Lord Byron, George Gershwin, Louis Pasteur, Nakita Khrushchev, Sir Isaac Newton, and Napoleon I. Don’t know about you, but I’ve found myself particularly mentioning (and hearing of) FDR and J.P. Morgan quite a bit in recent years.

While this Sun Pisces/Moon Leo blend is in effect, let’s take a peek at the details for this Water-Fire combination so soon to become Water-Earth on Christmas Eve Day ’08:

Sun Pisces-Moon Leo is emotional, moody, yet sociable, with communicative abilities, compassion, and idealism galore. Instability and depression may be prominent as well with Sun in Water and Moon in Fire.

Pisces-Leo is the star-servant combination possessing the kind heart of a humanitarian with the flair of a thespian especially when feeling neglected or invisible.

But the progression of Sec Moon into 1st house of Self will bring the American people more into view–and one assumes into the view of a new president. This promised identity change in our Progressed chart is, I believe, part of having a new White House occupant since the president represents the people to the rest of the world.

There is, however, a tendency toward self-dramatization which Leo always provides, and fear of competition is common with the sign of self-doubting Pisces…but this phase is ending soon.

There is one ‘Image for Integration’ for this blend:

“Cinderella sits by the fire mending her ballgown and daydreaming about her romantic evening of dance, glamour, and high drama.” (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign,’ Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

Shades of TV’s Dancing with the Stars?!! So You Think You Can Dance? ;p

Well, the time for daydreaming is ending as Sec Moon leaves the secretive behind-the-scenes 12th house, crosses the Ascendant, and nears the more serious sign of Virgo.

You may read more about this important change in the American people’s personality and persona in the world while viewing May 30’s Sec Progressed chart for yourself by clicking the above link to visit Stars Over Washington, if you so please.

And there’s a Royal Star of Persia rising in the Progressed chart, too, and another Fixed Star, Capulus, at Midheaven, the Aspirations/Career/Public Status point.

Capulus tends to add lots of turbulence to things, and a focused, direct, and ruthless energy. ‘Capitol’ Hill is awash with its energy, I’d say, and hasty actions have far-reaching effects when Capulus is involved.

Brady’s ‘Book of Fixed Stars’ gives Capulus’ keywords as: “male kundalini energy” and a leaning toward an “if it can be touched, weighed, or seen, then it has existence” mentality. This can bring savagery in dismissing the intuitive side of life (as we’ve observed ad nauseum from the Bush administration.)

But since man was created with the functions and benefits of a left AND a right brain, it seems to me that politicians of this persuasion look totally silly and completely unintelligent with only half a brain.
