June New Moon Equine Astrology TOD

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for the June 23 New Moon: Studies show that European badgers pee more at a New Moon than at other times of the month. Intrigued, I began to keep track and turns out, I pee more at a New Moon than other times of the month too! (Eh, we've all got to be curious about something.) Do horses pee more at a New Moon? I don't know but we're at the New Moon (June 23, Friday). Maybe throw down extra bedding, just in case. (Photo by Badger Watch and Rescue Dyfed).

June New Moon, June 23

The New Moon is here and you know what that means!--if there's a secret we want to get off our chest, now is the time to do it. Anything done at or just before a New Moon has better chance of staying hidden. Maybe that's why Trump has decided the White House Press Briefings will be done without camera or audio? Or does he just not understand that he works for *us* and in the United States it is traditional for politicians to be answerable to the public?

Speaking of not understanding, there'll be a lot of that going on at this New Moon. New Moon aligns with Mercury, god of communication which means Mercury is invisible in the sky. Can't access what we can't see (astrologically speaking) and both thought and talk are subject to being "overwhelmed" at this time. You know, just like the White House Press Corp who aren't allowed to use their cameras?

Mars is also mixed up in this Sun-Moon-Mercury alignment which indicates a lot of spoiling for a fight. This pattern strengthened by Mars's opposition to Pluto, a rather explosive pattern that becomes exact on July 2nd, right before the Fourth of July (oh boy!).

All of this forms a square to Jupiter (see the big red triangle in inner most ring? Pointing to the fancy "4" at upper right? --that's Jupiter). This much stress on Jupiter can bring out the good side of Jup such as seeing the big picture, love of adventure, love of nature, fondness for the rule of law. But it's more likely to bring out the bad side of Jupiter (you knew I was going to say that, didn't you) which is preachiness, religious or ideological fanaticism, greed (you know, like the Republican health care bill that takes money from medicare and medicaid in order to give money to the rich) and blind materialism.

But enough bad news!--how to use this New Moon productively? Well, if you're a Republican, just hope that Trump's followers don't wake up. For everyone else, concentrate on plans and ideas to see if there's anything you might have missed. For a few days around the New Moon stick with known talents and strengths. And write/call your legislators and/or anyone you wish to alert to a problem or your point of view--gotta find some way to use this fighty-preachy Mars-Jupiter energy and that beats banging our heads against a wall by a long shot.picture, love of adventure, love of nature, fondness for the rule of law. But it's more likely to bring out the bad side of Jupiter (you knew I was going to say that, didn't you) which is preachiness, religious or ideological fanaticism, greed (you know, like the Republican health care bill that takes money from medicare and medicaid in order to give money to the rich) and blind materialism.

June 9th Full Moon Equine Astrology TOD

So, tomorrow's Full Moon in horsey Sagittarius is a doozy and will heighten argumentativeness, obsession, rush-to-judgement, involvement with the law, recklessness, piss-offed-ness (you get the picture.) My advice? Be like the horse in this video! (My question--who the heck would sell this horse?! What a keeper!)

June 9th Full Moon

What's that up in the sky? A bird? A plane? A super-moon? Naw--it's not a Super-Moon (a full Moon at perigee, or close in orbit to earth)--it's actually an anti-super moon. That is, a Full Moon at apogee, or the far point in its orbit from Earth, so it will look smaller than the avg full Moon. Won't be small in effect though--"Though she be but little, she is fierce," as the Bard wrote.
This Full Moon aligns with Saturn (circled in blue, lower right)--Moon/Saturn brings out lonely feelings, heightens impressions of loss or restriction. It's judgmental (and can get the law involved, so be good).
Venus is still hanging in the sky with Uranus, so upsets in love, money, or personal values. Can cause indigestion too so lay off the hot sauce.
Jupiter "stations" on the day of the Full Moon, ramping up preachiness (don't get into ethical or religious arguments!), and Jupiter does so in square to Pluto, planet of obsession (yellow highlight on inside of wheel)--try to stay out of arguments because they're gonna go on FOREVER.
All this in addition to the usual Full Moon looniness. My advice?
Find a productive outlet for whatever it is we're pissed off about. Because being pissed off about something or other probably won't be optional. At least we won't be bored.

TMAstrology for Fri June 2

TMAstrology for Friday, June 2nd: Venus joins Uranus which brings a "shock to the system" for all things Venusian. That'd be art, or food, or sleep--think beauty or comfort. Last year the artist Prince died suddenly when Venus crossed Uranus. So look for "startling" news in the arts or finances, and hey, buy a lottery ticket--I don't know about you, but winning the MegaMillion drawing would be a shock to my system of the "Yippeee!" kind!

Wed-Thur May 31-June 1 TMAstrology

TMAstrology for Thurs, June 1st: A new study says that contrary to popular theory, people who never married and never had children are the happiest people of all. Wed-Thur aspects are right up that alley, as they favor chasing money rather than love. Channel our inner Capricorn and be happy.
