The Sun in Virgo August 22 – September 22, 2017
The monthly forecast that includes the New and Full Moon are now on the other forecast page HERE.
Full Moon in Pisces September 6, 2017
Let’s back up just a little, on September 3rd retrograde Mercury will join Mars and Uranus. Astrologically this is a lot of energy with these 3 connecting at the eclipse point. Our conversations will be on fire. Everyone will be talking over each other and excited to share what they have to say. Of course some people just talk to hear themselves and that might be annoying. The wise person would be smart to say nothing and do a lot of listening. We can learn more by listening then talking in this situation.
On September 5th Mercury is stationary and then moves direct it will take 2 weeks to get back to his original starting point so make sure and allow extra time for things to catch up with where we think they should be. Don’t be in hurry, not yet. Mars also enters Virgo today; this will constrain the usually energetic Mars for a few weeks.
Now to the Full Moon. On September 6th the Full Moon in Pisces is at 3:03 am ET this Full Moon can allow us some time to integrate all the details that have been coming at us at record speed even though Mercury has been retrograde.
The Sun in Virgo wants us to pay close attention to details and we should. When we have the Full Moon in Pisces this is where we can actually become aware of what we need to integrate and begin that process. The Pisces Full Moon is soft, Imaginative, and very sensitive. The Moon is also right with Neptune during this lunar phase and that will heighten our perception and intuition abilities.
This mean if we can get out of our heads, release some of the overwhelming details then this Full Moon will help us to move into something much more integrated and universal.
Now for something fun.
An image of the USA and where the visible eclipses are. This is over a 45 year period. (Yes we can see only 3 Eclipses in this time frame). In a 45 year span there are at least 180 eclipses. A minimue of 4 a year.

New Moon Solar Eclipse August 21, 2017
28 Leo 2:30 pm ET
THE BIG ONE “OPEN YOUR HEART TO LOVE”
What Do You Want to Create?
What Do You Want to be Passionate about?
Or so they say……. I believe all eclipses are important enough to pay attention to them. Even if you don’t care about the other lunar cycles most of us are over informed by the media and hype around this eclipse. So let me share with you what I think and why is this eclipse so important.
First off it is fun to see and experience an eclipse and in ancient lore they created a lot of fear around them because they did not understand as we do today. These beliefs and fears still live on no matter how educated we may be.
On Monday August 21 is the New Moon Solar Eclipse at 28 Leo 2:30 pm ET. This is the eclipse everyone has been talking about since the beginning of the year. Why is it so big; because we will be able to see this eclipse here in the United States? That is a rare occurrence since the planet has a lot of oceans.
It is said where ever an eclipse can be seen that is where there is the greatest amount of change will occur in the world, this time it will be the Untied States.
People are also connecting this eclipse to the President, which is true he is an eclipse baby and this eclipse connects with his chart strongly. Whenever someone has an eclipse near their birthday or on a personal placement in the natal chart they personally will go through a year of big shifts. He has that, he will go through personal shift and adjustments.
For me here is the hard part to dispel with all the media hype and what I have been seeing throughout this year.
People are saying this eclipse can create disruption and huge change, if we are all focusing on the fear surrounding some the reports of this eclipse then that IS what we will get.
My personal feelings with this Leo Eclipse are we can create the biggest shift in our human consciousness by opening our hearts to love. It is so simple and so hard all at the same time.
We can walk through the pillars of heart ache and loss and enter a place of self-love, compassion and understanding for ourselves and our fellow human beings.
I know this is not easy for most people because so many of us live in a place of fear, lack, disappointment and low self-esteem, and many will go down the rabbit hole of ego and self-centeredness with this Leo eclipse. But you don’t have to; you can choose to be in a different place, a place of creating your life, manifesting what you want your life to be. Gaining personal strength and standing up for yourself or something you believe in like never before.
This is also the second New Moon in Leo so we have even more opportunities to create what we are passionate about and our hearts desire.
So what would you like to manifest? New Moons are always about setting goals and intentions, the eclipse amplifies this energy.
Think about it ahead of time, work the ideas, uncover what you are truly passionate about and go for it. Let nothing stop you, if you don’t know what your heart’s desire is, play and discover yourself like never before.
Eclipses are typically game changers so why not use this to your advantage. Set goals, find your passion in life, live your life, indulge in what you love.
We don’t have to have the all the answers but we do need to take charge by using your own authority, step in the direction of Love and creativity that in turn ushers in a triumphant life full of love and passion.
I could say so much more but this eclipse has such a simple message.
“OPEN YOUR HEART TO LOVE”

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse August 7th 2017
The first of two eclipses this Full Moon eclipse on August 7th is at 15 degrees of Aquarius at 2:11 pm ET. We know eclipses are important to pay attention too because….
*They are the culmination of something started 18 months ago (Eclipse Aug 7th)
*They are an ending (Eclipse August 7th)
*They mark a new beginning (this is the eclipse of August 21st.)
Since Full Moons are about awareness and realizations this means, this eclipse is the apex of a cycle that started February 8, 2016. What did you start then? Take a look back at your New Moon wishes for February 8, 2016, or your calendar if you don’t do New Moon ritual. Because with this eclipse now is the time that we will be able to see clearly what is working with those goals that we set or the things we started in February 2016, and what is not working.
What is not working is what we need to release. I know releasing is so hard, we really want to hang on to things but this is not the best course of action. We do not have to let go of everything don’t go crazy, just figure out what has not worked since setting goals back then.
We become more aware of our current life situations than ever before during an eclipse. This is because of the gravitational pull between the Sun, Moon and Earth it draws on us just like the Moon and the ocean tides.
The question remains, will something end or are we just getting our momentum going, are we building to our goal? As I said traditionally during Full Moons we are told to “Let Go”. But let go of what? That is the question you need to answer for yourself. (If you need help let me know that is what I am here for. To help you put all this Astrology information to work for you in your life, not in general).
I want you think of this too, while I was talking to my Buddhist friend Dori the other day on how hard that is for some people (to release) with the conclusion of our talk on this subject we came up with this. Yes Full Moons are about releasing but that also means surrendering, that does not mean you are doormat.
If we open up our hearts to what is, to what we have manifested to this point, and simply allow the things that are no longer useful for our growth to melt away then we have done our duty and used this Full Moon Eclipse to the best of our ability. Allowing things to be as they are and that also means if something is not working, whatever that may be, please let it go.
So let’s focus for a few minutes and I will walk through what I am talking about and more of the details of this Aquarius Moon.
The exact dates related to this Full Moon Eclipse; are February 8th 2016 the New Moon was at the same degree as our Eclipse on August 7th, and Nov 7th 2016, the 1st quarter Moon also the same degree as this eclipse of August 7th. Those are the dates you need to go look at in your life. What were you doing around those days?
Here in New Hampshire these dates were both within 24 hours of Voting days. In a public sense this eclipse has a lot to do with our current administration, local, state and federal elections.
What were you doing then, what choices were you making? So look back to Feb. and Nov. 2016, this is important for what is ahead because as I have already stated everything we do creates our current reality and this Full Moon Eclipse is showing us the results of our actions over the last 18 months.
This happens all the time at every lunar cycle, so you can see why we need to keep our thoughts in the light and as positive as possible as much as possible. We are manifesting all the time and not even knowing it.
So let’s work with this Full Moon in Aquarius energy; here are some of the things Aquarius is in charge of. Look at this list and pick out what is true for you. Anything in regard to high tech and social media, long term goals, innovative ideas, Astrology, working for the good of the whole, humanitarian endeavors, freedom, breaking the rules, friends, groups, networking, unbending beliefs, and being to detached.
Anything ring a bell or two for you? It does not have to be everything listed above, that would be too much, just look at that list again see what resonates for you and then follow the steps of surrendering as I already mentioned.
(Open up your heart to what is, to what we have manifested to this point, and simply allow the things that are no longer useful for our growth to melt away then we have done our duty and used this Full Moon Eclipse to the best of our ability. Allowing things to be as they are and that also means if something is not working, whatever that may be, please let it go).
