Solar and Lunar Dates for 2011 - for transit chart studies and candle magic rituals

January 19, 2011

For horoscope watchers, here are the dates of lunar and solar events of great significance. The sign and degree placements follow western astrology, and were obtained from the Kepler Astrology software.

What makes these dates greatly significant? New Moons represent the beginnings of new cycles, and Full Moons represent the culminations of cycles. New Moons are great for starting new projects and ventures, or for seeding a new beginning of any type. Full Moons, which are high energy times, are good for working magic, for the energy of this time can be drawn on to empower one's purposes. Listen to the stories of others; imagine how you might use these times to create your life the way you wish it to be.

Solar ingresses are the dates that the Sun enters a new sign. The chart for this event can be viewed as setting the energy for the entire month. As such, the benefits and challenges for each area of life can be viewed by reviewing the planetary placements in each of the houses in the chart. (At a later date, charts will be provided in these pages showing the solar ingresses for 2011.)
