Happy New Moon!
And it’s also the first Supermoon of 2015!! Supermoons are new and full moon alignments that happen extremely close to the earth. Because of this, their energetic effects will be the strongest of the year! You won’t be able to see this super new moon. New Moons are also known as Black Moons. Every new moon, the Sun and Moon are in the same space, conjunct. Therefore, no light is reflected until they start to move away from each other, and the crescent begins to grow.
New Moon in Capricorn – 20th January 2015 RaStar 13 Star Sign Astrology Using the Constellation of Ophiuchus
The New Moon rises at 2pm (London) on the 20th January in Capricorn and the 9th House.
The New Moon in Capricorn is a cautious and reserved Moon and takes life very seriously, although it identifies the emotions with the material rather than the spiritual, in which status and financial security are at the fore of one’s mind, but ambitions have a personal bias. As the ‘Gemini Full Moon’ earlier this month was out of sync emotionally, the New Moon in Capricorn can come across as cold and austere. This is a time where a lot of reflection revolves around financial circumstances and status mostly on the home front.

After a journey of 31 days the Sun passes in Capricorn on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 at 6:40 GMT. It is noteworthy that New Moon will take place in Capricorn about seven hours later at 13:13 GMT. Astrological emphasis is therefore placed on the fact of sign change categorically. It demonstrates that New is associated with the path of the Sun in Capricorn. Course that will last until February 16, 2015, 17:10 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...
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..
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.
The 1st of 2015, since the winter solstice celebrations, this Full Moon is also known as the Wolf Moon. A very special one we have here this year. It’s directly on Sirius in Gemini. The ancient dog star. This is the guide star into the underworld for the Egyptians and many other celestial based ancient societies. Sirius is the brightest star in the sky and believed to be the birth place of the creation gods and goddesses and to humanity. The pyramids and many ancient stories about our stellar origin mainly point to this star. The mystical Dogon traditions are based on Sirius A and its star companions Sirius B & C, looong before modern telescopes even registered it physically in the sky.

By looking at the archetypes of a myth, one may be able to interpret aspects of the world that surrounds us. Mythology is a useful tool we can employ to identify features and aspects of the human soul.
In Greek mythology, Chiron was the wisest of the Centaurs (creations that were half Men and half horses) and could be considered as the 'wounded healer'. His pupil, Achilles, during a battle...

After 18 days the Sun leaves Ophiuchus transiting to Sagittarius on December 18 at 11:30 GMT. There it will find the company of two other planets, Mercury and Venus . These three celestial bodies in Sagittarius add to the feeling of concentration of forces on objectives and options and cultivate a positive climate in human relations related to these options.
Saturn and its moons. Far behind, to the right, our Sun.
As inhabitants of this planet we tend to see everything geocentric. This indeed was one of the biggest problems in the history of sciences and beyond. Astronomy was the science who paid the highest price in the arena of the geocentric looking of all things. So let's get away from the geocentric pattern and let's try to imagine our civilization on another planet!
How would it be if we were on Jupiter or Saturn; On another planet in another star in our galaxy? On another planet and star but on galaxy M81 in Ursa Major?
Lets try to find out with the help of Astronomy.
If we were on Saturn we would be more ...
Full Moon in Taurus, Image by Star Walk App
The Full Moon takes place in Taurus on the 6th December 2014 @ 12:27 (London). What a Moon to have this month! The Full Moon in Taurus is also in opposition to a Stellium of planets in Ophiuchus!
The full moon in Taurus is a strong moon, especially since the moon is in its exaltation in this particular sign; it demands stimulation to launch new projects and feels no way about putting pressure onto others for their input.
Last week we wrote a lot about the solar eclipses in our article "Moon and Solar Eclipses and the lunar nodes". We said that they are natural phenomena caused by the alignment of the earth with the moon and sun. We also talked about the alleged misfortune that came along with eclipses in the ancient times.
Today the science of astronomy and our broader knowledge about the solar system and the universe have largely combat this superstition. From astrological point of view solar eclipses today are considered as ...
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 !!
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 ..
