Henry Seltzer – A Magical And Difficult New Moon – 8 July 2013

Monday’s New Moon, which happens midnight Sunday on the west coast, early Monday morning on the east coast and Europe, takes place in the middle of sensitive Cancer, and in the heart as well of the Mercury Retrograde period. This lunation comes along at one extreme peak of the entire Mercury Retrograde, taking place as it does with the Sun and Moon in conjunction with Mercury, as it moves backward through Cancer, and accompanied as it is by the grand trine of JupiterSaturn and Neptune in Water signs, with Saturn stationing to direct motion.

Henry Seltzer – The Enlightening Transformations Of May – 2 May 2013

The Astrology of May features Mercury, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto plus two eclipses. Mercury runs through Taurus during the first part of May, being conjunct to the May 9th Solar Eclipse taking place in the 20th degree of that sign, which also conjuncts the South Node of the Moon and makes a quintile aspect to idealistic Neptune. Mercury then enters Gemini, the sign of its rulership, on the 15th, just in time to host the Sun for the powerful GeminiSagittarius Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse of May 24th, the third eclipse in just this one thirty-day period, encouraging us to think as well as feel our way through. Eclipses are more intense lunations — as recent headlines also indicate — making these transformative times that we are currently managing to live through even more poignant and accelerating the drum beat of change.

Henry Seltzer – A Poignant An Tranformative Full Moon – 28 December 2012

2012-12-28_FMWith Friday’s Full Moon we reach an important stage in this pivotal end-of-year period. This is an especially significant moment in time, one week after the 2012 Day and just a few days before the New Year, Monday the 31st at midnight, and featuring the perfection of the SaturnPluto sextile that has come along in this Winter 2012 time frame to add its weight to the on-going cycle of Uranus and Pluto. Massive transformation is the theme, as current events continue to call to our attention, and as our own instincts also reveal when we take the opportunity to tune in – as Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter puts it, to “close our eyes to see.” And the individual and societal mandate for change that we so poignantly feel actually represents our own best interest. We must, in the final analysis, allow to drop away whichever of our dysfunctional behaviors that we can identify as no longer serving our real needs. Continue reading

Henry Seltzer – The Hopeful Sagittarius New Moon – 13 December 2012

2012-12-13_NMThursday’s New Moon is an exciting one, taking place in the third decant of Sagittarius, which is Leo-ruled, and therefore, because the Sun rules Leo, with a closer than usual connection to the Sun itself. The Sun represents the evolving personality over time, the ego function that, when transformed, becomes the vehicle for moving beyond ego. In this New Moon, the Sun parallels Mars, while the Moon is in close contra-parallel to Jupiter. You might regard the energy of this New Moon as providing a new opportunity to take a real stand for yourself; to embody what you truly believe, on the inside, and are willing to fight for.

Henry Seltzer – A Powerful And Transformative New Moon – 15 September 2012

Saturday’s New Moon is another in the long series of intense lunations that we have been experiencing lately. This time is especially so considering that Uranus and Pluto are making an exact hit of their long-running square only a few days later, on the night of the18th – at around midnight PDT, later of course to the East. Saturday’s lunation prefigures this later time, so that this weekend and all next week will be powerful. Pluto is also in the midst of making his September 17th station to direct motion, and is therefore far more poignantly configured, while the New Moon makes a strong declinational set of aspects to his partner in crime, Uranus.
