In a few days,  I’ll provide chart & similar data for the upcoming annular solar Eclipse on 26th Feb 2017 (and also the coming partial Lunar eclipse (7th aug’17) and total solar eclipse (21st aug’17 – the big one!!)

Astrology: Full Moon T-Square on 12th January 2017

Hi all….in case you are all wondering about this great big T-square in the sky.. here are the details . Full moon at 11.34am GMT (in Moon’s own sign of Cancer, with Sun in opposite sign..Capricorn). Add to this the planet Jupiter in Libra that is squaring The Sun and squaring The Moon.. (in fact the full moon occurs after the squares have culminated)..

12jan2017-t-square-sun-jupiter-full-moon-c-mani-navasothy

Normally the day/ night before the full moon is quite intense and magical for many people.. a case of the personal `cauldron reaching boil’ ..energies rising to the surface.. culminating etc.. And as it’s actually an opposition (Sun opposing Moon *is* what produces the Full moon after all)…energies are pulling us in opposite directions.. (It’s why full moons are said to bring out the crazy side of things!)

Add to that the effect of the 2nd biggest stellar object of the Solar system – Jupiter – forming squares which create a lot of dynamic energies… (following oppositions, squares are the 2nd most stressful aspect any 2 planets can form!).. you can see why the last 24 hours and indeed the hours leading upto this T-square is being highly tense, dynamic, stressful and probably creative and productive too 🙂

By tomorrow evening (thursday evening) though the moon may seem bright and full in the sky, the `energies’ of this T-square will be slowly reducing..

Signs deeply affected:
Leo (ruled by Sun), Cancer (ruled by moon), Sagittarius (ruled by Jupiter), Capricorn (Sun is here now), Cancer (double-whammy- moon is here now), Libra (Jupiter is here now).

Of course we are all affected.. because at least 2-3 parts of each of our natal chart will be influenced by these planetary aspects.

Bright Stellar Blessings

It will have culminated by  4.52am (gmt) today (16th January 2014)..

The moon rules the sign of Cancer..and this is a Full moon..  So for all Moon-worshippers, this one is very special..  and more so for those who have  Cancer as their Moon-sign..   That’s their lunar birthday!!    (except it happens every month..when moon returns to same spot as it was at time of birth…But a full moon on same spot will highlight many of that house position..)

For all of you – Psychic sensitivity, emotional bubbling, mood swings, being touchy..as well as feelings of the past, thoughts of the mother, home, and evoked sense of nurturing..are likely!  Well, some of it…will be relevant to some of you..!!

Photo of post-Full Moon, Jupiter & Orion’s Belt

Moon & Jupiter 30Nov12 0258hrs gmt south-west sky

Here’s a photo I just took of the South-Western sky (from London)- Today’s day 30th November 2012 – at 02:58hrs gmt.

It shows the post-full moon (over exposed and causing a lense flare!)…and to the right of the moon, the brightest spot is planet Jupiter.

And to the lower left of the moon is Orion the Hunter…you can clearly see his belt!

It’s an average digital camera I used..  I set it in a tripod and set on manual mode (so it takes as long as it takes for an exposure..and t took a good 5 second exposure – hence the dark sky looks almost day-light…due to over exposure..  from moon light and light pollution of course!)  Oh,to avoid hand-shake of camera, I also set the timer for 2 seconds..pressed the button and waited.. (3mega pix settting).
