A new moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are conjunct or aligned in the same zodiac sign. In real 13 sign astrology that means it’s happening at the beginning of Taurus, the cow horn priestess Het Heru, on May 17th, 2015 at 11:13PM EDT. The Sun will actually stay in Taurus until June 19th. The new moon is a time of deep introspection and setting intentions for new beginnings. Het Heru is the Goddess of love and therefore creative manifestation. She teaches us to enjoy life and actualize our dreams.
The Sun transits to Taurus on May 14, 2015 in the afternoon, at 18:10 GMT, Leaving behind the zodiac constellation of Aries. He will remain in Taurus until June 22 at 1:40 GMT, then it passes to the next Zodiacal Sign,Gemini.
The Full Moon of June is on the 2nd of the month with the Moon in Ophiuchus promising adventurous mood and carelessness. The New Moon is on June 16th again in Taurus.
Mercury goes into retrograde motion from May 18 until June 11 deregulating actions and feelings.
The New Moon begins in Taurus on the 18th May at 05:15 am and in the 12th house - London.
The Taurus New Moon is one of stability and strength of will although, his appetite can be quite insatiable when seeking emotional security through material comforts. Finances are his forte and much common sense is focused around this area, the one thing we must never do is underestimate his slow and laid back attitude as this Moon is very calculating with a great deal of common sense
Happy Full Moon!
First let me take the time to say thank you for reading! Feel free to join my Raw Goddess 13 Sign Astrology group on Facebook. I want you all to get familiar with the actual movements in the sky. Not just what western astrology has ordained for us to think. We are all in this together and I’ll do my best to help.
Now, did you know that the Libra’s scales were originally the claws of the Scorpion!?!? Yep, and that’s where the full moon is located this month. Last month I explained how Virgo is the sign of mental health and balance. Maat begins in the mind, body and spirit of the Virgo Matrix mother. This full moon in Libra will highlight her scales of justice. The balance between life and death. What we hold onto and also what we choose to let go. The Scorpion’s Claws. The Romans renamed the hands of the scorpion the scales of Libra but originally Virgo and Scorpio were connected! There was no Libra! You can easily look this up! In the sky, the stars on Libra’s scales are still named the Northern and Southern claws!
In the article Which stars were you really born under? presented by Dara O Brian we read truths and half-truths or inaccuracies!
1. Truth: the Zodiac sign of 86% of people on Earth has changed! And this is due to the Precession of the Equinoxes. An astronomical phenomenon that affects Astrology.
2. Half Truth (1st Inaccuracy): Find your zodiac sign with the implementation of the BBC applet on the same web page. eg Capricorn 21/1 to 16/2.
The truth here is slightly different from that presented by the otherwise objective and defenders of science editors of the BBC. The dates when the Sun enters the 13 Zodiacal Constellations change every year because:
a. There are leap years that interpolate a day
Because the sky has changed since the epoch that Tropical Astrology was founded (about 2000 years ago). Now we need a new Astrological theory, that in co-operation with Astronomy will explain in a scientific way how this discipline will work in the future. It will explain as well the meanings of the the New 13 Zodiac Signs. This New theory is 13 Zodiac Astrology. It is founded in the book “Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac” by Vasilis Kanatas. Now, everyone can implement 13 Zodiac Astrology, building Birth Horoscopes, by following the instructions of the New Theory (see more in 13 Zodiac Software page). 13 Zodiac Astrology Web-Seminars will start in a few months for the people that demand a deeper knowledge on the subjuct.
Our true Zodiac Signs have changed because of the precession of the equinoxes, that is, the movement of the point of intersection of the celestial equator by the ecliptic by 50.2” (seconds of a degree) each year.
Thus the orbit of the Sun in the sky, as seen from the Earth, has changed. Now the Sun passes through 13 Zodiac Signs: Pisces – Aries – Taurus – Gemini – Cancer – Leo – Virgo – Libra – Scorpio – Ophiuchus – Sagittarius – Capricorn – Aquarius.
The old 12 Signs system does not work anymore. It has become a Monolithic religion. Tropical Astrologers follow the steps of Ptolemy and other Ancient Astrologers. But the worst for them is that they still see the sky as it was 2000 years ago. They tell you what your sign was 2000 years ago! They have their own Almancs to turn the sky back in 100 A.C.!!
With the new theory, in a few cases, about 10% of the total population has retained their old Tropical Sign. But the massive majority of 90% has changed. This is a scientific fact. Click HERE to find your true Zodiac Sign.
The fascination that solar eclipses cause on humans is eternal.
In ancient Greece eclipses were considered unfortunate and could even cause the interruption of a battle. This happened in 585 BC when Thales of Miletus was the first to predict a solar eclipse, as recorded by Herodotus. The eclipse was the reason for the cessation of hostilities between the armies of Medeans and Lideans.
Today we do not accept the unfortunate nature of eclipses and we tend to accept them as Astronomical events beyond our powers.
In the astrological level eclipses occur on the nodes of the Moon and involve large inflow or outflow of energy to or from the subconscious. It is obvious that we, as human beings, can do nothing to control these flows that disrupt our lives over time, and not instantaneous.
As we have said many times with arguments based on the science of astronomy, the zodiac Signs are now 13 after the insertion of Ophiuchus between Scorpio and Sagittarius, on the ecliptic. Where ecliptic is called the apparent path of the Sun in the sky.
The ancient Greeks who founded Horoscopic Astrology had much less knowledge of the sky and the planets than we have today. For example, in the time of Claudius Ptolemy they believed that the Sun was turning around the Earth. 12 Zodiac Astrology was born in the Hellenistic era and was a child of Astronomy of the 2nd century BC
Today we know from Astronomy that ..
This article is intended to be read by 13 sign Geminis and those with heavy Gemini influence in the chart.
Mercury, our ruler cast his quick fingers across the Sun yet again the other week with all the shining, remembering embers of dreams cast far and wide, which lingered a-while but ultimately burned out. Mercury courted Venus and now pays what seems an unfair and unjust penalty within Capricorn - and to stay a-while yet.
In the afternoon of March 12 at 18:50 GMT, a new Astrological year starts with the transition of the Sun in Pisces. The image shows clearly the Sun and the planets Uranus, Mars, Venus in Pisces. Mercury and Neptune in Aquarius. The Sun is at the point that has just crossed the threshold of the zodiacal constellations Aquarius - Pisces at about 18:50 GMT, March 12. Our star will stay 36 days in Pisces and then transit to Aries on April 19th at 6:50 GMT. All people born during this time of the year will be named as Pisceans !
On March 20 at 22:45 GMT the Sun will cross the celestial equator, this is called point "γ" in astronomy, the point of the vernal equinox.
Our observation of the Sun rising on the horizon at Spring equinox is the empirical reason why 13-sign Astrologers now affirm Pisces as the First Sign of the annual Zodiac-cycle - distinct from the previous classification of Pisces as 12th and 'final' sign of the cycle. This creates a shift in the numerological connotations we now ascribe to each individual sign. The idea of the fundamental inadequacy of..
That's me right now. Pisces the intertwined-twin fish is the FIRST sign of the Zodiac in the more 'Scientific' reckoning of 13-sign Astrology, rather than Aries. We witness and experience a fundamental shift here with the basic conceptual structural thought for progressive astrologers, who seek to align their psychic and intuitive abilities with rational thinking to achieve greater balance between their intuitive feeling and rational thought processes.
The transition times of the Sun in the Zodiac Constellations for next year are:
Pisces March 12, 2015 at 18:50 UTC - April 19, 2015 at 06:50 UTC
Aries April 19, 2015 at 06:50 UTC - 14 May 2015 at 18:10 UTC
Taurus May 14 2015 at 18:10 UTC - 22 June 2015 at 1:40 UTC
Gemini June 22, 2015 at 1:40 UTC - 21 July 2015 at 06:30 UTC
Cancer July 21, 2015 at 06:30 UTC - 11 August 2015 at 05:40 UTC
Leo August 11, 2015 at 05:40 UTC - 17 September 2015 at 06:40 UTC
You COULD interpret the passage of Saturn as LIMITING the sign it is in. But that is INCORRECT. Saturn USES that sign to broadcast confinement to the overall zodiac THROUGH that sign! Saturn is wider and uses any mechanism it can obtain for overall practical purposes.
This planetary change is HIGHLY significant. Hence all the gunfire in the world right now. Since it happened on Monday, and even in the immediate follow-up, we witness turbulent and deeply upsetting events taking place - freak storms washing ships up, lorries running innocent people down...
Many have tried to explain the motion of the celestial dome to people who have small background in astronomy, and most often the student stays the same ignorant as before!
So let us begin from the beginning! As the Earth is spherical, the same is valid for the sky around the Earth, and this is a matter of perspective!
Let us take as an assumption to make things easier. Let's say that the Earth is not spinning around itself within 24 hours, but remains stationary with the Sun over our heads! Let's say it does only make the annual motion around the Sun in 365 days. What we see then is that the Sun is moving slowly, at a rate of 1 degree per day to the East !!
Let the winter celebrations begin! Most of the traditions celebrated during the next few weeks are astrological in origin and have much to do with the Solstice point we are on today. Having a New Moon the same day makes for an extra special holiday season! The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Pluto and Venus are all forming a parade through Sagittarius right now! With Pluto going direct recently, this Sagittarius holiday season will be bursting with spiritual renewal for the New Year.
