What this blog is about...

This blog--Coming of Age in the Aquarian--has evolved into monthly reports of the new Moon/full Moon cycle for the upcoming month. These reports are usually published at the time of the current new Moon.

Charts are published with the monthly post and they're in the form of PDF files for you to download. There are two charts each for the new and full moons and two charts that show the relationship between the new or full moon to the U.S.'s natal chart. To see why I use the U.S. chart that has Scorpio rising, take a look at this article at Neptune Cafe.

Every three months calendars with astrological information are published, also for download.

My main purpose with this blog is to give you, the reader, information you will find useful in the coming month, particularly if you study or want to learn astrology. There is some interpretation of the charts included and references to interesting articles that relate to the current cycle or aspects in it.

Astrology is closely related to the sign Aquarius and many astrologers have Uranus, the planet that rules Aquarius, strongly placed in their charts.

2014 Moon Cycle 9

image: cycle 9 new Moon chart

This cycle begins with the Sun and new Moon at 2° Virgo 19′ and comes to fruition with the full Moon at 16° Pisces 19′.

With this new Moon in Virgo, a sign ruled by the Mercury and/or Ceres, simpler lifestyles and attending to the myriad details of life are highlighted. Virgo people may nag, complain, and insist on doing things properly; but at heart they're helpful people. The alternate ruling planet Ceres is in Scorpio in a stellium there. This may intensify interest in diet, health, and healthful living, topics related to Virgo.
