Welcome to this Super Full Moon and Eclipse at 11 degrees of Leo.

We are experiencing a very special event – the Full Moon in Leo, which rules the heart-space. The Sun rules the sign of Leo as well. The heart is being understood more than ever right now for being far more powerful than ever realised. The electromagnetic energy it gives off is stronger than our brain and is responsible for much of our reason for living in more ways than one.
The Full Moon is about validation and culmination from the last eclipse in August 2017 so we may find some resonance at this time. These eclipses move the energies along. We also now have Venus in Aquarius very close to the Sun. We have moved out of the heavy Capricorn energy of the past month so may find we are having some realisations and epiphanies about who we really are and what it most important for our personal growth. Venus opposing the moon right now sparks awareness of our emotions and intelligence and seeks to acclaim a more authentic ownership of our inner being as opposed to ‘herd mentality.’ Be aware of your ‘downloads’ and energetic engagements as they come into your psyche.
The planet Mercury (communications and thought) joins the Sun and also heads into Aquarius. So we have the Sun, Mercury and Venus in Aquarius now. We are working with our technology, love it or hate it. The Full Moon at 11 degrees of Leo is about mastery and in particular ‘self mastery’ especially in our relationships. The Eclipse is also conjunct (close to) the asteroid Ceres, so feeling a need for nurturing love, food, the harvest and the environment is a theme. Eclipses are always close to the Moon’s Nodes and the North Node speaks of soul growth and our destiny and women’s issues etc right now. This Eclipse can be seen better this time over Africa, Australia and parts of Asia.
It is the second full moon in the month (except in Australia as it occurs after midnight) however that is due to our calendar. So this is why it is coined a ‘Blue Moon.’ The Super & Blood Red Moon is because of its close proximity to the Earth. The Sth Node is transiting the 11th house of the collective and the Nth Node is in the 5th house of creativity, children, romance, the heart space and is about owning your vision and manifestation ability. Things can also leave your life at this time as well. Friendships change, wishes and goals, love life etc.
It’s important to take the time to ground yourself. We are emptying out and getting back in touch with how we can be better cared for in mid February. How can we do this better for ourselves, and without the anxiety of the past? Tending to our needs is all about parenting ourselves which ultimately helps us to be a more whole person in the long run.
Enjoy this most luscious and fruitful Super Full Moon in Leo!

This new moon is all about balance! It is is in the harmonising sign of Libra. The ‘give & take’ in our relationships are really highlighted now and this may be a wonderful time of blossoming in all aspects of our lives. Where is it we need to work on the deficits in our most cherished connections?
At this time we have Scorpio taking a stand! The sun is still in the last degrees of Libra at 27 degrees. However, we have Mercury ( the communications master) at 5 degrees Scorpio, Mercury at 5 degrees & Jupiter at 2 degrees Scorpio! So we have a theme going on here! Intensity around our relationships and real soul searching. Today we had the Sun & the Moon opposing Uranus in fiery Aries. With the moon opposing Uranus in Aries we will feel a little discombobulated with this energy for a short time. Libra preaches diplomacy, Uranus in Aries says ‘bugger that! This is how it is! Like it or lump it!’
Remembering the New Moon is the ideal time to make the wishes or ‘intentions’ for the impending month or even just your future in general. This is a really wonderful time to connect with the water element. When Mercury is in Scorpio, our thoughts and communications are more probing and intense. While Mercury in Libra urged us to find balance and to arrive at fair solutions, Mercury in Scorpio instinctively knows that life simply isn’t fair. Mercury in Scorpio seeks truths in all that is hidden and undercover. We tend to probe, observe, and focus our thoughts under this influence.
Being a little at odds with this energy isn’t new for us as its been happening on and off since late 2016. The Sun will shortly move out of Libra into the water sign of Scorpio and so complete this line up of planets in Scorpio, and so pairing up with expansive Jupiter in Scorpio. What we can expect to experience more of are deep desires, fears, sexual issues, shared resources, investments, taxes, secrets, hidden matters, suspicion and mysteries.
The more negative traits to me mindful of with Scorpio energy are possessiveness, jealousy, control and manipulation over others. It’s very primal and complex but the aim is to bring about transformation and rebirth though this process, but only if we can bring awareness into it. It’s interesting at the moment to see what is unfolding through the media surrounding the sexual harassment in Hollywood surface. Obviously it is not only in this area but there will always be a resurfacing and sacrificial element when these planetary energies are at play. Under this umbrella of sexuality and the Libran themes of justice and fairness couple with Jupiter demanding the outright truth!
Depth will be sought in certain areas of interest or studies. It can be done in a more penetrating and obsessive manner under the guise of Scorpio. Mars will soon enter the sign of Libra and stays until December 9th. He’s not very comfortable in Libra as Mars is way too impatient, assertive and impulsive, so he will be a little frustrated to say the least, which means ‘we’ can be also. Libra likes diplomacy, and time to decide on the best outcome. So therefore our ‘actions’ may require more deliberation which will prove frustrating particularly for the more assertive of impulsive personality types.
Venus has returned to LIbra now and will be there until November 7th. This is a good thing as she is in her own sign here operating very comfortably, endeavouring to bring harmony and peace to our relationships, so this is on top of the concurrent energies from the Sun opposing Uranus in Aries. Towards the end of October, Venus will start to form a challenging square with Pluto in Capricorn which can trigger those lower vibrations of Scorpio (Pluto ruled) such as jealousy, manipulation and obsessions. Mercury will also be close by which may only reinforce this. Being forewarned is forearmed! This is a great time to do a bit of self examination around all these issues, and instead of reacting negatively, we would be better off facing them and shining a light on that shadow, as we are all capable of letting these emotions flare up, especially in our closest relationships.
As always remember that the New Moon is the phase that is all about manifesting or setting our intentions, so be mindful of what you wish for! This energy continues a few days after the New Moon but it’s always best to start just before, on and just after, thinking about or writing about what or where it is you’d like to see yourself and your life unfolding.
I send you all love and best wishes for a wonderful New Moon in Libra!
This New Moon is upon us now, so as always this is when we set our intentions, make our wishes and sow the seeds for what we want to manifest. Times for New Moon – SYDNEY – 20/9/17 3.29pm LONDON – 20/9/17 6.29am NYC – […]
