Full moon horoscopes

10 May 2017

Things are full steam ahead with Venus and Mercury now direct. The Scorpio full moon at 20 degrees tomorrow at 9am. Scorpio represents intensity and full moons represent completion. This particular full moon is linked with Pluto - the powerful transformer. Finances and deep self reflection will be boosted this week. If you have anything at or near 20 degrees of Scorpio or Taurus, this full moon will affect you more deeply. Also the moons nodes moved into Leo/Aquarius this week. If you have any of your angles or your nodes in these signs, it will have a bigger impact on you and your fate/life path. The last time the nodes were in these signs was in 1998-2000 so think back to that time and the cycles you were going through for clues as to how this year is going to unfold for you.

A note on Sun sign horoscopes

Astrology is not magic, nor is it fortune telling. It is a completely different discipline to a card reading or palm reading. Astrology does map out the individual’s inherent talents and gifts that they bring into this lifetime and learning about your natal chart can help you direct energy and focus into the right areas of your life.

For example, if your natal Sun lies in the second house, you have the talent to be financially successful. However, it doesn’t mean that you can then put your feet up and wait for the money to come rolling in. More likely than not, it would indicate a successful career which is dependent on your own efforts, rather than coming into money from say a lottery win.

However, consulting your “star” sign is often helpful for people in their everyday lives. Your “star” sign is actually your Sun sign – the sign of the zodiac that the sun was “in front of” at the moment of your birth. Of course, this was what the ancient astronomers thought back 3000 years ago when they devised the zodiac system. You dear reader, of course know that it is not the sun that moves at all, but us on planet Earth that revolves round the sun; but the principles of psychological interpretation remain the same.

It is important to note, that although your Sun sign is very important in your birth chart, it is not always the most dominant aspect. Your Moon and Venus sign are just as important as is your Ascendant. Most people would benefit greatly from reading the horoscope for their Ascendant over and above the one for their Sun sign. To determine your Ascendant though you will need to know what time you were born, so your natal chart can be drawn. I often get instant strong reactions to this from clients who claim they don’t know their birth time. But most of the time, a quick phone call or text to their mother or father, or other close relative will give them a pretty accurate picture. From there, it is pretty easy for a competent Astrologer to find your exact time and draw up your chart. For example, no birth time is publicly known for best selling author J K Rowling, who is notoriously private. However, it didn’t take much for me to come up with a potential birth time of 9.30am which would fit with what we know about her. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that I will ever be able to verify this birth time officially as I suspect she has kept these personal details private on purpose.

If relatives cannot shed any light on determining your time of birth, then you can check hospital and government records as birth times are officially recorded in most countries, although unfortunately not listed on birth certificates for most of us.
