The Full Moon Mutability Check

So this is a very MUTABLE Full Moon coming up – it is the Sun in Sagittarius opposite the Moon in Gemini and both are exact square Neptune.
Many Moons have an outer planet in orb of being in some sort of aspect but an exact square is relatively unusual.
So even the Full Moon is exact on Sunday-Monday, the outer planet involvement means this is what I call an extended play Full Moon.
You feel it early as the Sun square to Neptune starts days before.
This is a really good chance to observe how your anything at 11 degrees (or make it 10 to 13 but NO more) goes when thus triggered.
Say you have Mercury at 11 of a mutable sign, it’s a fantastic surge of inspiration but perhaps via some sort of stress factor that forces it – because these are squares after all.
And note how there is one “empty zone” of what would be a Mutable Grand Cross – we have 11 Virgo “blank” so that is also another hot zone for this.
Finally, check your ephemeris for when Saturn was at 11 Sagittarius – something from then (or someone) could be back or referenced.
And in general, you can note people with Neptune problems will have them illuminated like nobody’s business.

        Thank you, Silkcharm!

        But yes, it’s good to learn how to look up transits in an online ephemeris. Worth having a quick tut on the site?

    I have Saturn at 10 Pisces, Uranus at 11 Virgo and Mars at 13 Virgo (I’m going to squeeze Pluto in at 14 Virgo cos that planet gets cranky when separated from the other two).
    I’ve closed a lot of doors the last two years. Consciously, no burning bridges (hey! i’m an Aries). I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. Mum has a saying: when a door closes, you sit quietly in a hall until the next door opens 😛 Come join me in the hall. I’m bored.

      PS I wonder why nobody talks about Jupiter also at 11 degrees this weekend? Surely that is also significant. The full moon hits Neptune’s 11 degrees Pisces AND Jupiter trines from Scorpio!

      • Reply Astro Hacks December 1, 2017 at 9:18 am

        Jupiter trines, Neptune (and will again in May and August 2018. Good point. Jupiter also semi-sextiles the sun and quincunx the Moon when full. These two aspects, the 30 and the 150, where both called ‘inconjuncts’ in ancient times – important aspects that have a kind of quirky effect. There’s a disconnect as it brings together signs that are not linked by polarity, element or modality so it’s like meeting someone, chatting, then waling away asking, “what did they just say?” You know?

    I have Pluto at 11 Virgo — my Gemini sun at 17 degrees 2nd house, Lilith at 16 Saggitarius 8th house. Saturn at 5 Pisces and Chiron at 18 Pisces in my 11th, Neptune will be between them. This sounds interesting!

  • Reply Ellie A November 30, 2017 at 7:44 pm

    I have sun in Pisces 11 Pisces, and progressed moon 12 Virgo. No idea what’s gonna happen this wkd. Has anyone else noticed the mars opposite Uranus square Juno t-square at 25/26 cardinal that same day. I’m pretty sure that ties into the full moon in terms of semi and sesqui squares, or whatever you call that 135 degree angle. So the full moon is sorta lighting up that configuration. Anyway, I have my asc/dsc axis at 26 cancer/cap so both my sun, prog moon and ascendant are being hit. I will report back next week with news of events of any 🙂

    • Reply petal November 30, 2017 at 9:19 pm

      My man’s sun is 11 pisces too, in 7th house. We’ve been riding stormy waters of Neptune on his Sun for the past few years. It has been tougher than anything in our joint 18 years together. I’ve watched him dissolve. How did you go with that transit Ellie ?

      And Oh dear,
      The Full moon is in my 7th house too, and my natal moon is conjunct MC at 12 virgo.

      Kind of hoping something definitive does happen

      • Reply Ellie A November 30, 2017 at 10:48 pm

        Hi Petal, wow it looks like you and your husband are experiencing some major transits together! Tbh I can’t say I’ve noticed Neptune on my sun the past couple of years. I think it might be because I’m naturally very neptunian and in touch with that part of myself already so I don’t think it had much of an effect on me. Whereas I’m currently noticing some strong effects of Pluto squaring my Venus and mars. It’s bringing a lot of ‘repressed’ parts of my psyche to the surface. Full moons usually expose things or end or brings to an end etc. bearing in mind that Neptune went direct last week and is pretty much done transiting mine and your husbands suns and your moon, the full moon could be the transit that marks the conclusion of this difficult time. Please try not and worry, I’m sure things will work out in a pleasing way given that Jupiter is nicely aspecting all of this 🙂

    • Reply Astro Hacks December 1, 2017 at 9:25 am

      Uranus at 25 Aries is semi-square (45 degrees) the Sun at 11 Pisces, and sesquiquadrate (135) the moon at 11 Virgo. Mars at 25 Libra is semi-square (45 degrees) the Moon and sesquiquadrate (135) the sun. Think of that as throwing gas on the fire. It does heat things up!
      Thanks for pointing that out!

  • Reply Flashfire November 30, 2017 at 9:22 pm

    Hmm…. I have 11 degrees Mercury in Sagittarius. Am gem rising, saggi sun (26 Degrees). Saturn will go direct on my birthday. All this action on my personal points is frankly weirding me out. Am trying very hard not to go running back into the haunted house (as per MM’s scopes) and apply clarity to the number of Saturn changes I have made, although struggling to see them and any real results clearly. It’s like feeIing around in a murky pond for gemstones you’re sure are there, but you can’t see them and they keep slipping from your fingers. I am not entirely sure how to define it yet, but do feel different (heightened, deeper, more attuned somehow) since Jupiter into Scorpio. Dreams have been darker, stranger lately. I have Scorpio Neptune exactly trine Saturn and Chiron natally and wonder if this is being triggered now. Am I’m midst of writing a novel (magical realism is the genre.) Been having unusual encounters on my nature walks last couple of days. Curious and curiouser.

    • Reply Flashfire December 1, 2017 at 2:59 am

      Have just read the Jupiter in Scorpio Notes entry again, and wow. SO yeah. Puzzle pieces clicking into place. I’m feeling this all come together in a way I don’t believe I ever have before, with a kind of unflappable calm that feels like (gasp!) wisdom. Is this Saturn stationed exactly on my sun kicking in? It’s not a wild, giddy feeling. The opposite in fact. It feels rather more stoic, enduring, made from stone. I feel like a gargoyle perched on the outermost corner of some ancient building, watching the world with something akin to (but not quite) amusement, realizing I have seen this before.

      • Reply Astro Hacks December 1, 2017 at 9:30 am

        Saturn is incredibly grounding and supportive if we are ready to meet it with a strong spine and willingness to work. Plus, you can channel anything out through the writing. Let your characters deal with the challenges and obstacles!

    Full moon from 1st to 7th house, squaring natal Jupiter and Venus in Virgo (9th house). Neptune has been opposite the Virgo planets FOR–EVER. I will have a lovely mutable cross with this full moon. Me-Other-Home-Destiny. So much about how others view/know me, superficially or intimately–while my chart ruler (Jupiter) moves through the last degrees of my 11th house. I feel very disconnected from a (previously strong) need to make superficial connections or impress others or get kudos. What I want is real connection and I’m very aware of how others are or have shown up as supportive and real to me.

      Realized I got one of my house descriptors wrong–Neptune is in my 3rd house–siblings, neighborhood, communications. Not 4th–home. And yes! Awareness is key. Just so weird to be so aware–for me anyway.

  • Reply Rhiannon December 1, 2017 at 2:01 am

    Mars at 11 Virgo. On Saturday I’m going to be in ceremony on the other side of the state to see if I want to accept a job there (if it’s offered). Obviously the details of the job matter too, but mostly I’m looking for spiritual guidance and my grounded assessment of the community there. I hope the astrology of it all will help. I’m having a lot of trouble getting past my thoughts to dial in on guidance.

    And while I have nothing else at 11, I am crazy mutable, with oodles of Virgo, Gemini, and Sag, so maybe some activation will do me good.

    • Reply Astro Hacks December 1, 2017 at 9:35 am

      Good plan to actually go there and feel it out. Have you looked at your relocation chart to see what shifts?

  • Reply Electro December 1, 2017 at 3:31 am

    Full moon at an exact trine to my Pluto which sextiles my 12 Sag moon and 13 Sag Neptune. Yes, I have Neptune square going on right now. I also have my prog moon exact on my 6 Gemini 8th house Mars, so not as tight but felt in spades.

    Things have been hella interesting lately, starting with eclipse season. When Venus met Jupiter, I treated my Scorpio rising self to a concert and a Mayan abdominal massage, which was much more than that. Hours with a gifted shapeshifter healer. She moved my everything.

    Had a huge bonfire on Saturday, our version of what to do on Black Friday weekend. Then my husband got sent away for two weeks with work and although I have to do it all myself, I am getting supercharged by not absorbing his energy. He’s Leo rising, first house Virgo sun, and Libra moon/Pluto/merc conjunct so intense yet balanced in the ether somehow. He’ll be home for the weekend then gone again. We have a full moon owl prowl on Sunday so excited about that. Natal Pluto in 11th house and it’s a new conservation group I just joined.
    I have a fixed t-square on my angles and squeezing my Leo sun, so I love when I can tap into the mutable energy. I’m also tapping into my natal Pluto Mars trine.

  • Reply batshley December 1, 2017 at 3:31 am

    this t-square activates a natal t-square for me… asc/chiron at 11 gemini, saturn/dc at 10 saggo, and jupiter at 9 pisces.

    during saturn’s transit at 11 degree sag (which saturn bounced back and forth from an Rx and stationed right on my natal saturn for nearly a month!) it became super apparent to me that my current best friendship dynamic was extremely toxic and would not change while we were in each others’ lives. i noticed this same pattern with another close friendship as well. this was also when i had a huge art inspiration and took part in an all femme art show titled “don’t call me baby,” where i had learned to not share my WIPs online because my best friend at the time would get extremely competitive with me. during said art show ghosts from my past were present and attempted to get my attention by hovering around me, but i was so overjoyed i hadn’t even noticed their apparition (a friend told me the next day they were proud of me for not playing into it and having fun, which is how i became aware). it was a painful time full of growth and rewards.

  • Reply Laura December 1, 2017 at 3:44 am

    Oooh, I love this (rubs hands together, breaks out the popcorn). I think we should include 11 degrees of ANYTHING (Jupiter trine Neptune at 11 degrees!) and 27-28 degrees of ANYTHING (Mercury going retro on Saturn in late Sagg) since this will be so potent all the way around.

    I have a Mars/Mercury conjunction at 13/14 Virgo – this ought to be fun, especially with Mercury going retro. I also have Venus at 14 Scorpio that will get caught in the Jupiter/Neptune undertow if I’m not careful. I have Pluto at 27 Virgo – square-dancing with Mercury retro/Saturn. Moon at 27 Cancer, Neptune at 28 Scorpio, and let’s not forget Eris, who for me (and lots of others) is at 12 Aries. You think she is going to sit this one out? Not a chance, lol.

    Well I have my AC 13 Virgo/DC 13 Pisces, Vesta conjunct my IC at 12 Sag with transiting Saturn conjunct and Ceres at 11 Capricorn with Mars conjunct. No idea what all that boils down to but I’ve had Neptune opposing my AC for over a year and it’s just begun it’s cruise through my Pisces stellium (already passed my moon, on my DC, headed towards Sun, Pholus, Mercury, Venus and Eros) so Neptune – problems or otherwise is just everyday life for me.

  • Reply louisadeasey December 1, 2017 at 4:35 pm

    I’m having a bit of a tough one. Full moon is on my Gemini Ascendant. When saturn was at 11 sag in dec 2015 I was in the throes of awful work/home/family stuff which i thought was about my pluto transit.
    I have sun at 14 pisces and i’m sick of neptune – Just feel really vulnerable and full of doubts about absolutely everything.
    So there, that’s my full moon. Strangely keen for the blahness of 2017 to be over, it feels a bit like a ‘waiting room’, but then again, i’m in my 9 personal year of my numerology cycle, so maybe that’s it…. Hm.

    • Reply Astro Hacks December 1, 2017 at 5:58 pm

      I hope Jupiter trine your sun in a few weeks, then June and Augues 2018 will feel like a lift. Pluto was sextile sun for a LONG time and the Pluto Neptune combo could have been quite the inner journey, esp when Saturn swung into orb. Is sun close to your MC as well?

      • Reply louisadeasey December 1, 2017 at 9:12 pm

        Thanks so much Astro H, nice to have a lift to look forward to. Pluto / Neptune was full of ghosts (real and imagined) and quite harrowing, heavy, hard work, loooooong.
        Sun is 14 degrees pisces and midheaven is 0 degrees aries, is that what you meant…? so i guess they aren’t close.

    I have Cancer rising and always feel especially busy/exhausted around full moons, but this one is really something. In my 12th House conjunct Chiron, square Neptune transiting my MC, with Mercury going Rx on natal Neptune in the 6th.

    Emotional eating patterns have resurfaced. Realizations that I need to be more realistic about the work I take on, for the sake of my health. Efforts not to snap at slippery clients so I can exit outdated scenarios with professionalism. Strong desire for a detox and clean routine. So I’m just trying to make it through the holidays with minimal stress and come out on the other side of this Rx with some better habits.
