Full Moon Eclipse in Capricorn 18th August 2016; reaches its peak on the 18th August 2016 at 10:29 GMT.
By Kim Lovelace
The Moon in Capricorn is a serious and ambitious Moon and relates to material values, rather than spiritual values. Capricorns influence on our Moon is to seek financial status to feel a sense of self worth which is very conflicting to our Moons true nature. This sets the overall pace until we reach the New Moon. As the Full Moon reaches its peak in the last degrees of Capricorn, the Moon enters Aquarius a few hours later, combining the energies of materialistic desire with a search for freedom (escapism).

Happy Full Moon Lunar Eclipse!
Welcome to the Aquarius freedom loving Full Moon cycle! This one is a penumbral lunar eclipse and will barely be visible. Aquarius is all about you being you, sharing your spiritual talents and gifts with humanity. Aquarius, in ancient Egypt, is known as Hapi, God of the annual flooding of the Nile. Hapi is a fertility God and is considered to be ‘Father of the Gods’. He was known to be loving, caring and all about collective peace. Hapi has breasts and a protruding belly to represent the fertility of the Nile. MORE

You have your power back Leo and are ready and willing to indulge in some new experiences. You feel at one with the world and yearn to express and spread your feelings of spiritual oneness; the only thing holding you back right now is your emotional dissatisfaction of all that is unbalanced in your personal or home life. On one hand there is a danger of you going over the top with your creative urges, whilst on the other you are blocked by a deep feeling that all is not well. Your intuition and profound understanding of life and people can be an asset around the time of the Full Moon where your intuition, perception and originality will give you confidence and you will be able to achieve many things at this time. Your health has vastly improved and your magnetic charm can bring you the balance and harmony that you so need right now. Make the most of the Full Moons energy as once September hits, old wounds come to the surface and healing work will need to be done. You will need to find an outlet where you can express them, don’t bury them. You will find yourself striving hard but there is a lack of direction, it feels like it’s a case of one step forward and two steps back, but you can take advantage of the new opportunities coming in, by letting go of the past; they say the last mile is the hardest and this may be the case with you.
By the New Moon on the 2nd August, you have difficulty in holding onto your ego and you could lose sight of your boundaries. You just need to direct your energy realistically and be honest and practical. Your motto this month should be “If it's worth having, then it's worth waiting for.”

Money and the fool are soon parted
The dance of Mercury is a trompe l'oeil for us, a trick where the eye deceives the brain. Mercury is ahead of us, and we don't know it. Are we moving forward or is Mercury moving back? It's a perfect time for trickery and deceit. Mercury is impartial, and with only a backward glance, trips up our assumptions, sometimes at great cost to us. An austere Virgo Mercury give way to a Leo "Nothing but the best for the King" animal, grabbing what we need for short term gain. Then the Virgo will return like a giant vacuum cleaning up with all the money. As a parable, Virgo is the careful, hard working ant, while Leo is the brash, freewheeling grasshopper. Mercury retrograde lures the grasshopper to his doom, but the ants aren't safe, either. At any given moment the entire hive can be destroyed by a larger colony. Welcome to the insect world, where resources are always limited, and the threat of destruction is ever present! MORE
THE LEO ANIMAL
AUG 10-SEP 15
Image by John Vernon Lord
"What immortal hand or eye can frame thy fearful symmetry?" asked William Blake, when faced with the nature of the cat. Leo is nature in the raw, nature as ruler, natural law and the natural self. Leo makes its own rules, lives by its own nature, which is to terrify the rest of us.
"Leo isn’t just an animal, Leo is the king of the animals—putting itself above all others, and taking the best for itself. For each of its narrow feeding roles, the Leo excels. First we have the image of the huntress, Diana, with spear, sitting on the throne with her pet lions alongside her. Then Leo eats, rapaciously and ravenously; food is the prize. Then Leo wants sex, prowling for pheromonal females. Then Leo sleeps, reverently supplying its tremendous ego with the energy it needs to resuscitate.
Men and women Leos differ in important ways; The male Leo dominates; displays his libido, assumes rulership of the pride, defends the pride. What the male Leo does is kill. Anything or anybody that trespasses on his territory, or threatens his reign, including any male, even the cubs of other lions. The female Leo is the lifeline of the DNA, the center and creator of the pride, who provides food, suckles the cubs, organizes the females into a hunting posse, and is the mainstay of the Leo society. Male Leos are expendable and interchangeable, they come and go according to their ascending or waning power, and their ability to kill enemies. Females remain, persist and collectively build for the future as a group and a family. She passes the power on to the next strongest female."

SATURN IN OPHIUCHUS:
What does Saturn in Ophiuchus foretell for us? It seems a contradiction, Man's artificial machine, the Man-State of Hate, in the sign of the ethereal outsider and spell-binder. The state is shaken to its foundations by the black arts of radicals and the mystical power of the masses. Yet the state can eliminate anyone, and has unlimited murderous power. At times this position seems to be a predictor of the persecution of the non-conforming and free-thinking and rebellious Ophiuchus and her coven of outcasts. If the state can catch you, it will burn you at the stake. Yet this placement is also the state being consumed in a Green Fire of purification. It may not look it at first, like frost over the leaves, but the destruction is final. Ophiuchus represents a large swell of women's voices and attitudes that bring the state to its knees, causing a breakdown in the systems that hold it together.
URANUS: WAR AND PEACE
On July 31, Uranus went retrograde, with an apparent motion from 32 to 28 degrees Pisces before it goes direct at the end of 2016. This is a repeat performance of 2015, when Uranus went from 29 to 24 degrees Pisces during July-December of that year. All in all, it must be admitted, Uranus in Pisces wants peace, but in retrograde, seems to get violence.
Uranus in Pisces has been called the Jesus syndrome, when new ideas, from Christian ethics to socialist economics, emerge to create a more humanistic society based on love. In Pisces, Uranus is weaponless, so these new, revolutionary ideas are subject to repression and their adherents, to martyrdom. In retrograde, Uranus is retreating from confrontation, shirking the pain. Uranus retrograde is hung up on past hurts, and historical injustice. Freedom is still out of reach, in spite of the fact the first inkling of a new, kinder and more humane philosophy is on the rise, at least among those who have the higher consciousness. But what good does consciousness do when faced with an AK-15 assault rifle?
Billionaires and Presidents
Karl Marx famously said of the French counter-revolution, "History repeats itself, the first time as tragedy, and the second time as comedy". This is also true of our history of presidents. Donald Trump and John Kennedy have a lot in common (see chart), both billionaires, both of them not trusted by the very establishments from which they sprang. Aside from character issues, the big difference is that, Kennedy presided over a rising economic tide in 1960, while Trump's America of 2016 is on the decline. Kennedy was the tragedy of America, while Trump is the farce.
|Sun in Taurus||Sun in Taurus|
|Maverick billionaire||Maverick billionaire|
|Father ran brothels||Father smuggled liquor|
|Traitor to his party||Traitor to his class|
|Trophy wife (Melania)||Trophy wife (Jacqueline)|
|Creepy opponent (Clinton)||Creepy opponent (Nixon)|
|Unscripted Tweets||Unscripted speeches|
|Boorish self-confidence||Sexy self-confidence|
|Silly bouffant hair style||Cool bouffant hair style|
|Media villain||Media star|
|Powerful enemies||Powerful enemies|
Like the Kennedy Magic, which connected with the baby-boomer's rise to power, Trump also has tapped into a vein of lost power among the otherwise privileged white population that has been the main beneficiary of American hegemony. The message of "Ask not what your country can do for you" and "Make America great again" is not that different, except Kennedy was drawing from the idealistic heart of youth, while Trump represents the fallen hopes of a distressed middle-class, as they cascade into poverty. Today this white population is older, infirm, no longer relevant, and angry that immigrants have swooped in to take advantage of their complacency, arrogance and political confusion. White people hardly identify with their working class origins, preferring to aspire to a parasite existence of cutting coupons, living off home equity and collecting rent, like their wealthier brethren, who are, like them, white, but hardly working class.

A lot of what you learned about your Moon from mainstream astrology is false or misleading. The 12-sign Zodiac just doesn't represent the truth. A 13 sign astrology horoscope reveals the facts about your real birth planets and luminaries by finding the right sign and degree. 13-sign astrology also includes the sign Ophiuchus, the goddess of women's power and accomplishments. The 12-sign, tropical view of the horoscope deficient and outdated.
Another vital placement in the horoscope is the The Black Moon and Lilith, which is linked to the dark, hidden extreme in Lunar polarity, the opposite of the lighted moon, our romantic archetype. Again, traditional astrology rarely acknowledges this mysterious influence, and gets the sign wrong.
