You need not know a thing about astrology to live in attunement to the natural Lunar Cycles. The progressing lunar cycles and their changing eight lunar phases is a natural and dependable time piece of spiraling creative expression. Participating and acting in time with the changing lunar phases can enhance your creative process, synchronize your mind and body, teach you how to breathe with your emotions and to live in the power of the present, and help you to become more productive and follow through with your plans and ideals. Most of all, it can drastically reduce stress that is so prominent when living in our modern-day mechanized and synthetic world that is out of touch with our natural biological rhythms. Simply download the Lunar Planner Introduction and each month's Lunar Calendar to learn how. It is free and simple.

This Lunar Month's Theme

In the Clutches of the Scorpion

November 11, 2015 - December 11, 2015

This November 11, 2015 New Moon occurs upon the Scales of Libra, which historically are the Chelae of the Scorpion, specifically conjoining Zubeneschamali, an Arabic star name, which means the northern claw, as rendered by Johannes Kepler in his wood carving showing Ophiuchus standing over the Scorpion. Also conjoining are the stars forming the neck and head of the Serpent, which is held by Ophiuchus, reaching for the Northern Crown. This New Moon and lunar cycle theme is about claiming our self-mastery by choosing to do things differently so we can claim greater freedom from our past patterns of entrapment.

Ophiuchus vel Serpentis by Johannes Kepler

The New Moon is also sextile to Jupiter, which creates a Yod (Finger of God) to retrograde Uranus. This augments our lunar theme and impels a deep inner exploration of our psychological and physiological patterning, and to sever from this antiquated patterning by creating progressive, innovative, even radical change that breaks us from the conforming bounds of the past. However, due to its retrograde, this impels us to make these changes in our internal psychology before we can fully actualize them, which will be supported more so after Uranus completes its retrograde toward the end of the year.

Vesta completes its retrograde on the South Lunar Node opposite Mars and the dwarf planet Makemake on the North Lunar Node. This engages the Earth-Vesta 1.3-year synodic cycle that began on September 28, presented in the September 13, 2015 Lunar Planner. This was a compounded energetic involving the Lunar Nodes aligning with the Vernal Axis of Earth's Precessional Cross, Mercury, Juno and the dwarf planet Makemake. In part, it brought emphasis to getting clear from emotional and psychic congestion and to the administration of resources in relationships of all types, those personal and intimate, to those of business and politics. Now we are impelled to apply our newfound clarity in assertive demonstrable action. Due to the close conjunction of Mars with Makemake, issues surrounding the administration of resources may still be of issue. Mars-Makemake conjoining the North Lunar Node and the Vernal Axis can also stimulate aggressive behavior or explosive situations both personally and in the world at large, but this also impels audacious action and assertive leadership that effects evolutionary change.

Pallas and Pluto conjoin creating a dynamic T-square to Mars opposite Uranus in the latter part of this lunar cycle. This creates an intensifying energetic continuing throughout the last quarter of the lunar cycle (December 5-11). The Mars-Uranus opposition part of this T-square, in general, can be quite intense and unwieldy for the younger or less-aware soul, impelling an intolerant need for independence and a refusal to conform with a strong revolutionary anti-authority attitude. Thus, eruptive events in the world or in many people's lives, should they occur, can be of this nature. The Pallas-Pluto conjunction in the Zen Archer is however the crux and is the primary energetic that will express. For the younger soul this can express as extreme side-taking and judgmental spiteful power plays, especially toward those that have placements fulfilling the T-square; i.e., opposite Pallas-Pluto. For those more conscious, and which is the opportunity here, this force can be dynamically supportive to create radical change regarding the use of power via an opportunity to use our creative intelligence beyond the judgments of this-side-verses-that-side for greater social reform and social justice, based upon a greater awareness of a higher truth.

Uranus and Pluto do not make an exact square, as the final exact Uranus-Pluto square occurred in March 2015, but they create a increasing pressure wave due to the Uranus retrograde approaching square to within less than 2° as Uranus arrives to its direct station, which occurs on the Full Moon (Dec 25) in the following lunar cycle, and which continues this intensifying energetic throughout the remainder of 2015. This can be seen in the 2015-2016 Graphic Ephemeris.

A wonderful series of events occur during this intensity. Venus and Juno, asteroid of covenant partnerships, conjoin later in the lunar cycle bringing emphasis to love, romance, partnerships, and to what we value in our relations. This also brings attention to sexual attraction and the appreciation of beauty, and how it may or may not go hand in hand with the business aspects of committed relationships and issues regarding financial resources. They also conjoin the dwarf planet Haumea preceding their conjunction, inspiring a re-birth in relations, or the birthing of new relations and new ways of interrelating. Haumea is currently opposite Eris (for many years). Uranus joins Eris in 2016—all a longer-term planetary configuration very much catalyzing the upsetting discord in the old world paradigm and the birthing of a new. This culminates in 2020, due to the synchronized endings of longer-term synodic cycles between Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto (with Ceres and Pallas) all in a waning square to Eris—the ending of an era.

Uranus Eris Haumea Timeline 2015-2019

The passage of Juno and Venus under the auspices of Haumea earlier in the lunar cycle, inspiring a rebirth, with their conjunction occurring on our day of inner need to change, on the Last Quarter Moon, and completing as the Balsamic Moon nests between the two, creates a perfect coalescence to this potent lunar cycle. It brings us a simple yet profound message for our relationships and how we interrelate in our covenants—integrated from the receptivity of an open and compassionate heart, navigating through life together with intuition and being attuned to and having trust in the subtle evolutionary currents guiding our lives, our meetings with one another, and our sojourns through life together.

Theses are but a few of many events occurring in this lunar cycle. The Monthly Lunar Planner explores the details of these events, their meaning and more—the underlying cosmic currents upon which we evolve and which guide our daily lives—based in star-level astronomical astrology and synodic astrology.

Solar Cycle # 25 & #26 Predictions & the Coming Mini Ice Age

Solar Cycle 25 (2020 / 2025-peak) is expected to be the smallest in over 300 years, if it even shows up. The Modern Warm Period is over as we now enter a Solar Minima, plummeting Earth into a period of global cooling, expected to catalyze a Mini Ice Age, like occurred during the Sun's last Grand Minimum of solar activity, known as the Maunder Minimum.

"A new model of the Sun’s solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun’s 11-year heartbeat. The model draws on dynamo effects in two layers of the Sun, one close to the surface and one deep within its convection zone. Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the ‘mini ice age’ that began in 1645....

Looking ahead to the next solar cycles, the model predicts that the pair of waves become increasingly offset during Cycle 25, which peaks in 2022. During Cycle 26, which covers the decade from 2030-2040, the two waves will become exactly out of synch and this will cause a significant reduction in solar activity...."

Jupiter-Saturn Cycles, Solar Cycles and Climate Change

A primary fact that many climatologists and environmentalists ignore is that planetary cycles synchronize with Solar Cycles, which in turn drives Climate Cycles. Jupiter's cycles synchronize with the solar cycles, modulated by Saturn, and somewhat by the Gas Giants Uranus, and Neptune. The Jupiter cycle is 11.8 years. The Sunspot cycle is 11-12 years....

March, 2015 - ESA's Gaia Mission (billion-star surveyor)

"Gaia is an ambitious mission to chart a three-dimensional map of our Galaxy, the Milky Way, in the process revealing the composition, formation and evolution of the Galaxy. Gaia will provide unprecedented positional and radial velocity measurements with the accuracies needed to produce a stereoscopic and kinematic census of about one billion stars in our Galaxy and throughout the Local Group. This amounts to about 1 per cent of the Galactic stellar population. The mission's ultimate goal is to create the largest, most precise 3D map of our Galaxy ever made." (ESA)

Mission Conception: 2000
Payload launched: Dec 19, 2013
Calibration and testing phase, First test Images: Early 2014
Science phase begins: Mid 2014 (five year operational phase)
First catalogue release, planned for summer 2016

NASA's Dawn Spacecraft, while orbiting Vesta, found some surprising things on the giant asteroid—things that have prompted this statement from Chris Russell, Dawn principal investigator from UCLA: "We're seeing enormous mountains, valleys, hills, cliffs, troughs, ridges, craters of all sizes, and plains. Vesta is not a simple ball of rock. This is a world with a rich geochemical history. It has quite a story to tell!."

About the Monthly Lunar Planner

Planetary cycles create the evolutionary currents of growth occurring within ourselves and our lives. To know what these cycles of life are asking of us is to consciously participate in life from a place of personal empowerment and inner peace. In this awareness and attunement, we can walk the path leading to our highest fulfillment—physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The Lunar Planner is an experiential tool teaching how to live in attunement to the natural Lunar & Planetary Cycles—supplemented with astronomical star-level astrology and much more.

There are three parts to the Monthly Lunar Planner Publication:

• The Lunar Planner Introduction
• The Monthly Lunar Calendar
• The Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary

The Monthly "Lunar Calendar" and the "Lunar Planner Introduction" PDF downloads are FREE to all visitors to this web site. These two documents will teach you how to live in attunement to the Lunar Cycles. (Links to these files can be found below.) A new "Lunar Calendar" is made available just before each New Moon. If you use the Monthly Lunar Calendar like a daily journal while using the Lunar Planner Introduction as guide, you can quickly learn how to participate in harmony with the natural lunar spiral of growth and gain an entirely new understanding and perspective of your life experience.

The "Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary," also made available just before each New Moon, is available by subscription. This monthly publication articulates the opportunity for growth in consciousness each lunar month offers and how each month's lunar theme unfolds throughout the changing phases of the Lunar Calendar. I explore the theme of each lunar month and its unfoldment in our lives with "astronomical star-level astrology" which I have evolved over many years. This is not sign-based astrology (topical or sidereal), but is experientially-based astrology exploring alignments with individual stars and constellations much like one would naturally learn by living and sleeping under the starry heavens.

The rest of the Lunar Planner web site including the "Lunar Planner Forum," and many other educational resources are free and are available to everyone.

I also offer a few other publications available to purchase: Planetary Bio-harmonic Audio Meditations, Personalized Star Charts, and other educational material.

Lunar Planner Members

The Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary available on each New Moon (based in sidereal / star level astrology) is available for a small subscription fee—merely the price of one good Cappuccino per month.

I hope my existing visitors, as well as new visitors, find the subscription of value. After offering the monthly Lunar Planner Commentary for free for many years, I now ask for this small subscription fee to allow me the ability to continue to host and evolve what has become a rather voluminous web site.

Lunar Planner Forum for subscribers and non-subscribers.

The Lunar Planner Forum is an exciting addition to the Lunar Planner Web Site available to everyone—to subscribers and non-subscribers.

The Lunar Planner Forum is intended to be a fun and educational way for Lunar Planner visitors to learn from each other's experiences.

Discuss the Lunar Planner, Sidereal Astrology, Earth's Precessional Cross, and all other Lunar Planner related topics—from bio-harmonics to the stars; private messaging for forum participants, and much more.

New subscribes have a five-day trial period to explore the current Monthly Lunar Planner before committing to the 6-month subscription. You can also visit the Lunar Planner Archive to view previous issues of the Lunar Planner so you can get a feel for what the monthly Lunar Planners are all about—a continuing story-line revealing the monthly energetics creating our evolutionary spiral of growth, articulated through sidereal star-level astrology, synodic astrology, and astronomical mythology, the picture-language of the Greater Heavens. Lunar Planners older than 6 months are available to non-subscribers.


Hi Nick,

I wanted to write you a note and let you know that you are the first subscription that I have ever signed up for on the internet since I have been using it. I have been so used to everything being free for so long in the 'wild-west' days of the web that I didn't really find anything I thought was worth paying for...

Until you !

I have been wanting to write you / speak with you for a while anyway because the level of your understanding is so profound that I wanted to connect a little more on where it is coming from. I had been aware of your work through another galactic astrologer friend of mine Norma Tarango years ago. She was sending me some of your work...and since I have found it online and I print it out and read it faithfully every month...

So this is to tell you that I think subscribing to your work is well worth it. Your level of understanding and galactic connectivity is profound and it has opened much understanding for thank you !

Thank you again for your work and all that you carry ~ Nickki Lee Hill
