George Balanchine, Founder of
New York City Ballet
Aquarius Sun, Pisces Moon, Cancer Ascendant
God creates, I do not create. I assemble and I steal everywhere to do it – from what I see, from what the dancers can do, from what others do. George Balanchine
It’s not surprising that Mr. Balanchine, the father of neo classical ballet, is an Aquarius. His imagination and vision were well ahead of his time. He had a talent for bringing out the individuality of his dancers and bringing them to the edge of their capability. Yet, he also cherished the oneness of his dancers, and took pride in his collective vision of perfection.
As the 11th sign of the zodiac Aquarius sees the big picture, and needs to make a special contribution to the future- whether this involves a community, social movement, or humanitarian cause, Aquarius is born with a mission. Mr. Balanchine’s devotion to his dancers, which eventually (with the assistance Lincoln Kirstein) became New York City Ballet, is now historical, yet still lives in the future as through his creation of the Balanchine technique.
Musicality was Mr. Balanchine’s greatest gift, as he had great respect for music in its own right. With the Moon in Pisces, the most musical sign of the zodiac, he had a natural sense of rhythm, and flow. A trained classical pianist, he likely could just as easily been a composer. With his rising sign in Cancer, the sign of family and nurturing, Mr. Balanchine was comfortable taking on a father role-feeling personally responsible for the welfare of his dancers, and taking care of them. He was known for his generosity and loyalty, for once a dancer was chosen to ride under his wing, the sky would emerge and reveal the brightest stars.

GREAT AMERICAN SOLAR ECLIPSE OF 2017
Total Solar Eclipse in Leo
All conquests are born when we dare to begin. Anonymous
The total solar eclipse in 28 degrees of Leo will be exact on Monday, August 21, at 2: 30 p.m. EST. Positive new beginnings can be expected no matter what sign you are, but fire signs will benefit most, due the grand fire trine (a most auspicious alignment of 120 degrees) between the new moon in Leo (i.e. the eclipse), Saturn at 21 degrees Sagittarius, and Uranus at 28 degrees Aries (retrograde until January 3, 2018).
What makes this eclipse even more special is its tight proximity to Regulus, a spectacularly bright star in the heart of the Lion, for the constellation of Leo, at 29 degrees. This star is known to bring good fortune, and is prominent in the charts of many celebrated actors, politicians, as well as royalty, and well known historical figures.
One thing for sure is change is on its way! Ready or not! Saturn’s influence will likely add a sobering effect, as Saturn in the planet of stability and longevity. Sagittarian’s will likely feel this influence the most, since Saturn is now in their sign. But that won’t be the whole picture- as Uranus known for bringing the unexpected and shaking things up. Get ready to venture in new territory that feels a little rocky- after a month or so, you’ll likely gain foresight and balance to help you ground yourself as you master your footing.
Meanwhile, why not set the tone from the very beginning and create your own dance?! Terpsichore is in Sagittarius, the sign of adventure and travel- so wherever you are, show your moves!
If you’re in Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, or the Carolinas, you’ll likely have a spectacular view!!

The full moon in Sagittarius, Truth will come- with a price.
It is a necessary provision to understand that it is impossible to prevent everything.
Sagittarius James Comey’s testimony with the U.S. Senate comes at the full moon in Sagittarius, the sign of higher truth, and intelligence. Like Mr. Comey, we will all have an opportunity to state our truth in a particular area of our life- but it won’t be a walk in the park. The full moon will have a heavy weight on its shoulders, as it will be in close contact with Saturn, the planet of restriction, delay, and conformity (and also the planet associated with the government, hence, in Comey’s case, President Donald Trump). Saturn entered Sagittarius in 2014 on Christmas Eve, and will enter Capricorn on December 19, 2017. If you are a Sagittarius, you have likely felt the weight of Saturn’s influence since 2015.
A promotion, travel opportunity, or educational pursuit has likely tested you in many ways, and required you to focus on a singular vision. This comes to mind in Comey’s case regarding the e-mails of Hillary Clinton, and most recently the investigation of Russia. As a mutable fire sign, Sagittarius by nature is heroic and adventurous, and thrives off freedom, so you may feel uncomfortable in your skin as you make the adjustment to adhering to the structure and order that Saturn demands.
The good news (especially if you’re a Sagittarius), is that Jupiter, the planet that rules Sagittarius, will awaken from a four month retrograde and station direct on the same day of the arrival of the full moon-timing so fabulous you would think it’s a gift from God! Now in Libra, the sign of justice, Jupiter’s power will gain momentum, and encourage you to remain as diplomatic as possible as you navigate new territory (sound a bit like Comey’s current plight- doesn’t it)? This may involve a legal case, business partnership, or romantic relationship. You’ll likely have new knowledge that will help you see the bigger picture so you can tap in your wisdom, and capitalize on your best option.
Ultimately, this full moon will mark the end of a certain way of life, making you “grow up”, and face reality not as you would like to see it, but as it really is. Sagittarius is known for being the zodiac’s most optimistic sign, however, so even if your reality is far from ideal (as with Mr. Comey), the fire of Sagittarius will help you stay light on your feet, and look on the brighter side of the truth.
Lessons from the Sagittarius Full Moon are as follows:
ARIES (March 21- April 19)
A higher goal will likely reach and end point. Reflect on all that you’ve learned so you can continue to develop into your full potential. If you’re in a global pursuit, you may reach an impasse, which likely be blessing, in the long run. A citizenship matter will likely be completed, if you’d like to relocate- and the outcome will likely have a sobering effect.
TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)
Trust will be the main theme for you in your closest relationship, and within your business, if you’re an entrepreneur or in finance. This full moon will teach you there is great value in conservation, and taking a spiritual approach to your material life. Once you’re willing to give you what you’ve got, you’ll realize you have more than enough to sustain you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Opposition from an authority figure will likely make you take a second look at your relationship- which is probably overdue for examination. As soon as you think you have a clearing, you’ll likely be delayed- have patience Gemini, as the full moon has an important lesson to pass on. Abide by the rules, and you’ll gain the wisdom required to make a breakthrough, just in the nick of time.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
You’ve likely make great strides in your work, but now you may be too wiped out to celebrate your success. Take time to rest, and settle in to a new confidence you’ve recently gained, as this will help you shift into a higher gear that will allow for less momentum, and a smoother ride.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Well, Leo, looks like it’s time to see the writing on the wall when it comes to a matter of the heart. If you’re a parent, your child will likely challenge you to rise to the occasion, and enact your authority. Although this may be hard for you (as you have soft heart), it will be the best thing you can do for child’s future. In romance, you’ll be ready to commit, or move on – either way, your heart will likely know best.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Although home, family, or emotional matter may leave you feeling slightly despondent, you’ll also feel grounded, and secure. Take stock of the work you’ve put into creating a solid home base, and you’ll realize you’ve done a fine job. This full moon will likely show you that responsibility comes with sacrifice, but the reward you receive will have lasting value.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
However difficult it might be to make a final decision, the full moon will compel you to make up your mind, despite the consequences. Although it may feel as though you’ve been shoved in a corner, it’s likely you’ve had ample time to see all sides of your circumstances. Now is the time to trust in the power of your logic, and move on.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Hold on to what you have Scorpio, but not too tightly. This will be your lesson as the full moon illuminates your chart’s arena of income and ownership (the second house). Although you may not be entirely happy about the outcome of business endeavor or financial goal, at least now you can come to a full acceptance of where things stand- which will lead you becomming a fiscal master.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Where you end and your duty begins will likely draw a bold line between your integrity and responsibility. The best thing you can do for yourself, and everyone involved, is stand by your truth, as this will likely be the ultimate constituent that shines light of what you’re made of. You’re much more solid that you think, Sagittarius, but you must vehemently defend yourself before you can tap into your greatest resource; your inner strength is as solid as gold.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
A recovery will likely take longer than you expected- which will likely send you in a deep state of inner reflection. You may think you somehow missed an important step that would have allowed you to avoid what you’re now experiencing- but it’s likely the opposite is true. Cherish the time you now have to heal- and the light of the moon will renew your faith.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A close friendship may reach a turning point, which will likely affect you deeply, as Aquarius is the sign of camaraderie, and good will. Try not to take it personally if you feel slighted by someone you’ve known for a long time. It’s likely the full moon is sending you a special message- it likely has to do with expanding your social circle, and taking on a greater role of leadership.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Sometimes when you reach the top, the view looks different than you imagined. You’ll likely find this true as the full moon illuminates the pinnacle of your chart. Trust you’re exactly where you need to be however, despite how uncomfortable it may feel. It’s time to draw the curtains, Pisces, but know that now you’ll be ready for a bigger and better role.
