On Sunday April 20th at 3:25 A.M. & 7:05 P.M. EDT we come to the beginning of completion to this Grand Cross. This energy has been building up for months. We’ve seen some of the reactions in the world, including the situation in Crimea, Syria, and on Wall Street. Jupiter blows thing out of proportion, so we should expect the problems to be exacerbated over the next few weeks. This pass of the Uranus square Pluto completes tomorrow, although its effects have been felt for some time and will continue to be felt for a long while.

The next New Moon falls on Thursday January 30th at 4:38 P.M. EST at 10 degrees Aquarius 56 minutes. The day or two leading up to it will be a particularly low energy period. If you tend to be emotional this may be a very trying time each month. I have found that people with prominent moons or a Cancer Sun, Moon or ascendant respond to the cycles of the moon more intensely than others. Spend this time finishing up anything that is incomplete, don’t try to initiate new projects on a waning moon, it just won’t work out. Once the New Moon hits you begin new projects or attempt a new approach to an existing problem. If you have been living in a situation or involved in a relationship that is intolerable or has outlived its usefulness this would be the proper time to move on with your life. If you have been working on a project that is almost complete but you seem to lack the energy for the finality, you must push during these low energy days to end the matter once and for all. If you don’t, when the New Moon arrives it will bring this “dead” energy along with it and conflict with the newer force being presented. Each month we are offered a chance to clean house, so to speak.

On Wednesday January 1st at 1:54 P.M. EST the Sun and New Moon conjunct this most stressful non-planet. When there is an aspect close to a New Moon it represents that energy that lunar cycle will display. With Pluto in close proximity we can expect some more stressful times ahead. This month will be about power struggles and hidden agendas. You can expect to uncover some secrets which will have to be dealt with directly. Pluto in Capricorn will release a lot of things buried in the unconscious. Pluto is in conflict with Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) during many difficult world events. They were in square in 1940 as the Second World War was starting to heat up. They were in opposition when the World Trade Center was destroyed. At the moment they are in mutual receptivity with Saturn in Scorpio, which is helping us cope with the mess we’ve been in for the last few years. With Pluto conjunct the New Moon in Capricorn we can expect to see some manifestations of the repressive energy of Capricorn coupled with the deep and probing power of Pluto.

THE SUN CONJUNCTS MERCURY:
On Sunday December 29th at 1:28 A.M. EST we will all be a bit willful. Because this conjunct happens in Capricorn it will be a little restrained, but the underlying attitude will be arrogant and demanding. If you have something to say you will say it now, so try to phrase things in an honest but non-aggressive manner. With Mercury in square to Uranus now as well (see below) it will be easy to overstate your case or just lose your control altogether.
MERCURY SQUARES URANUS:
Also on Sunday December 29th at 3:48 P.M. EST Mercury will also square Uranus. This is a very dangerous and excitable transit that demands our attention. Communications and travel will be especially disruptive and we should all pay attention to the here and now. It’s very easy to be distracted by Uranus. People may fly off the handle or say things they will regret later on. Try to use caution in your speech. Some brilliant ideas may come to some, and if you can control the urge to leap before you look, you will be able to institute some of them. With Mars just past the opposition, and the Sun about to square Uranus as well (see below) this could be an explosive holiday week.

This month’s lunar peak occurs on Wednesday November 28th at 9:46 A.M. EST at 06 degrees Gemini 47 minutes, and it is a Lunar Eclipse. This eclipse is in Gemini, and communication will be at the center of any difficulties it brings. Eclipses block out the light and it is hard to see what is actually happening. Conversations will take on a heavier tone and you may not hear all that is being said. This month is a lot about uncovering things and the release of hidden pressures. The effects of an eclipse can last for months, and whatever occurs now will have longer lasting effects than you may realize. Try to be clear and finish up what you start. If not, the incomplete projects or relationships will linger for about 6 months.

THE SUN OPPOSES URANUS AND SQUARES PLUTO:
On Saturday September 29th at 3:16 A.M. and 1:54 P.M. EST these two forceful transits will complete. Because the Full Moon also completes today (see below) the Moon will conjunct Uranus and square Pluto. This could be a very powerful moment in the lives of individuals or the collective. Explosive and compulsive are the two words that first come to mind. For a few days preceding this and following the Full Moon I would advise caution and restraint. It will be difficult to follow your normal path, and you may be quite distracted. Difficult world events are very possible and it may be hard to avoid explosive situations. Remember, the collective is more powerful than the individual. Keep your eyes open and expect the unexpected.
This month’s lunar peak occurs on Saturday September 29th at 11:19 P.M. EST at 07 degrees Aries 22 minutes. Because of the aspects mentioned above this Full Moon demands our attention and respect. This is an Aries Full Moon to, which transmits a great deal of energy to begin with. Add the force of Uranus square Pluto exactly on the Sun and Moon and we have the makings of an exciting and possibly bizarre few days. Personal relationships could take a bad hit, especially if this sets off your chart just right. You may wish to think twice before making that midnight phone call. But if you do, you will probably hear the truth. In some ways both Uranus and Pluto demand the unveiling of all things hidden. Combining the two just exacerbates the exposure.

On Saturday September 22nd at 10:49 A.M. EST we enter autumn. As always, I remind you that each of the 4 seasons coincide with the Sun entering each of the cardinal signs. Libra is interested in balance. Certainly it is relationship oriented, and coupling is on most people’s minds. Autumn is often when new love affairs begin, I believe as we unconsciously prepare for the long and lonely winter. But even if you aren’t in an ongoing relationship or are lucky enough to find a winter lover, this is still a time of partnerships and learning how we best relate to others. And it’s a good time to start a new connection no matter what the definition.
