Uh Oh… May 16 Full Moon – Be Prepared

This chart, set for London (and therefore Great Britain) is a bit of humdinger.

I don’t often sensationalise but this is a really tense and trying looking chart, with the Sun/Moon falling exactly on the ascendant/descendant, and with the sun very close also to Algol – the demon star – in a Taurus first house, along with revolutionary Uranus and the North Node, insisting that we look at ourselves realistically, whilst trying to refrain from extremes.

Things are really coming home to roost right now and change is afoot which may seem difficult to deal with, especially with Moon conjunct the South Node – we really do have to learn to let go emotionally.

Epoch Making Times

And for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, we are living in pretty epoch making times, so watch out – but this also goes for the world too. The activated and very tense Taurus/Scorpio axis is likely to highlight and bring about drastic changes in financial markets and the world economy around now.

Added to that, the Sun and Moon are square to Saturn in Aquarius in the 10th house. There are likely challenges and counter challenges to authority and leadership and in diplomatic circles too, but with Mercury now retrograde in Gemini, beware also of rumours of wars and other disasters, economic or otherwise – they may not be true, or, we may only find about what really went on when Mercury turns direct next month.

Something Has To Give?

Something has got to give around now, with all this fixed sign activity and racking up of tension to a crescendo.

There is also an emotionally volatile Mars/Neptune conjunction in Pisces in the 11th house, also aspecting the Sun/Moon, and acting almost like a pressure valve release. We may see a very difficult, emotional event occur which will affect the general public, but make sure to read all sources of information.

Drastic Action

For Britain (London) the midheaven is conjunct awful Pluto too, only undermining the government and other authorities, which may prompt them into drastic action.

And with Uranus also at 15 degrees Taurus in the first house, these are changeful times indeed for Great Britain, and we should expect sudden events.

Saving Grace?

The only saving grace in this chart is the 12th house Jupiter in Aries, along with Venus conjunct Chiron. We are probably going to have to dig deep, especially in Britain around this period, but so long as we have confidence in ourselves and look forward to new beginnings we can get through most eventualities. We are likely going to feel wounded to some degree, especially within ourselves and in relating to others an even as nations, but it will be an important lesson to learn, one which can help other peoples in the future.

I also drew a three card spread for the May 16 Full Moon, which cast an alternative light upon possible events. If we are broadminded, with courage and confidence, I think we can get through any crisis. There will be new opportunities emerging in the background which can result in overcoming problems and create the circumstances for new relationships and agreements which will put us in a much better place than we are at present.

I certainly hope the latter is the case, but we may have to experience a moment of shock first.

Full Moon January 17 2022 – Uh Oh

This full Moon chart is set for Westminster, seat of the British government.

We are on the threshold of major political and economic changes, transformations and revelations everywhere and no more so than in Great Britain; they have already begun, but may come to a head around the day of the full moon.

Will the Prime Minister and the government survive? I don’t know, but this juncture looks particularly rocky and the road ahead uncertain. The British people, represented by a dignified and culminating Moon, and also the 4th house, look as though they’ve had quite enough to say the least of the whole situation.

So this full Moon will particularly affect the government and the people’s perception of it. But with Mercury retrograde it might be difficult, at first, to see what is truly going on, although the sense of shock will hard to conceal in certain quarters. Beware of the hype, the spin. Things which have been hidden could well be shown, and it may be quite upsetting for many.

Beware of Those Demons and Delusions! Partial Lunar Eclipse November 19 2021

The full Moon, in fact a partial lunar eclipse in Taurus on November 19 2021, is closely conjunct the fixed star Algol, which probably has the worst press of any luminary.

After all, Algol in Arabic literally means the Ghoul, so what else should we expect? There have been many studies done about events and individuals with planets aspecting this malevolent star, which has associations with drugs, including alcohol (which almost sounds like the star, right?), delusion, violence and general extremes: Algol is the head of the Gorgon Medusa who was killed by Perseus in ancient Greek mythology.

So let’s be clear, this full Moon is likely to be pretty intense, more intense than usual. The Sun and Moon are squared by Jupiter in Aquarius in the third house, the ruler of this chart set for London, creating a tense T-square in fixed signs. Jupiter’s expansive nature is only likely to exacerbate the sense of darkness and drama. There is likely to be a coming to a head of an existing problematic political, financial and economic situation in the world as well as the UK. Jupiter is in the third house of communication, so we ought to hear about it, hopefully.

This is underlined by Mars, also in its own sign of Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus in the sixth house of health and work. I am thinking of the NHS and national issues involving health, work and money. However, Venus in Capricorn in the second house makes beneficient angles to Mars and and Uranus, highlighting an opportunity to offload some of this tension in new practical ways and directions.

What does a three card tarot spread suggest? Card 1 is the present situation, Card 2 the background or hidden story, Card 3 is the possible outcome.

I think we really are at a point of culmination here, but it may feel a bit like the dark night of the soul. Nevertheless, the Hermit is holding his light to show the way, it is essential that we look and discern what is going on. Knowing the truth can be a lonely place in a world of deception.

Behind the scenes a new situation is rapidly developing which we are still scarcely aware of. This is a spiritual battle, an undeclared war.

The outcome could be quite drastic around this time, or shortly afterwards. The Tower card in TDM is called the House of God; remember that any changes, however drastic are needed, even though it might be quite disruptive for a while. An old house has to be taken down before we can rebuild.

This card is number 16 of the Major Arcana, which adds up to 7, a number of progress, conjecture, change and strategy. God is working his purpose out, as the saying goes.
