Grief and Sorrow at the Pisces Full Moon joining Neptune

September 10th 2022 is a day that will live in history

The death of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth has hit me hard. I have been caught in tears and grief as I have witnessed the events over these last few days.

Do you- like me- feel that you’ve been given a curved ball at this Full Moon in Pisces? No-one could have predicted that our dear Queen Elizabeth would die just 2 days after meeting the new Prime Minister Liz Truss? However, as an astrologer I can see it in her Solar Return chart along with the Solar Return chart of Prince Charles as he then was. 

I have a code of honour along with many astrologers that I will not predict death in a person’s chart. One chart that is much discussed is that of Princess Diana. It was seen that 1997 was a year of transformation, but no-one could have foreseen the tragic events of that year. 

 Our dear Queen Elizabeth II died last week at the age of 96. In the system known as Profections age 96 is a year of rebirth that occurs every 12 years. In her Solar Return birth chart it is clearly seen that September would be a significant month for her. I have been caught in tears and grief as I have witnessed the events that have played out since last Thursday September 8th when her death was announced at 6.30pm BST. 

A rainbow appears above Windsor Castle the day the Queen died.

Neptune is seen close to the Moon at the Full Moon in Pisces.

Neptune governs dreams, healing, psychic connections, all things invisible. How difficult it is to believe in the unseen when the reality (Saturn) seems to dominate?  In the chart of Queen Elizabeth Saturn in her 10th house of vocation is the significator of her life of service and duty.

Rainbows appeared on the day of her death above Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace! 

In astrology rainbows are connected to Chiron, the archetype of the Wounded Healer. Its known as the rainbow bridge as it orbits between Saturn and Uranus. Watch my YouTube video as I look at her birth chart in both western and Vedic systems.

Planets are Retrograde

This is not uncommon as it happens every year, but for the next few months all planets from Jupiter to Pluto are retrograde. On September 10th Mercury began its third retrograde of the year in Libra, going back into Virgo on September 24th. So when Mercury is in Virgo we have a two-week window of opportunity to get things sorted. It goes forward on October 2nd and returns to Libra on October 11th.

Looking ahead Mars goes retrograde on October 30th. It spends 6 months in Gemini, so where that is in your chart gets a major power boost of energy.

Mercury in peace loving Libra is now retrograde

With Mercury in Libra, then going retrograde in September you may be caught in delaying making decisions. Libra is the scales, so balance is important. Libra’s shadow is indecision. The opposite sign is Aries, so taking action is the solution. As Mars is now in Gemini with a positive flow of energy to Mercury, this is good advice.

Analysis paralysis is what many of us who have a strong streak of perfectionism in our psyches may have been struggling with. The feelings of being a fraud or a failure are weapons that the ego-that small part of us that wants to play safe, may have holding you back. It’s known as the Imposter Syndrome.

Listen to your dreams and the whisperings in your ear from the angels and spirit world. Write, draw- put down on paper your vision for your future. Mercury will be retrograde and exalted again in Virgo on September 24th -October 11th. This truly is the perfect time to call on help from friends in High Places.  

As the saying goes, make Gratitude your Attitude.
