March Blood Moon & Lunar Eclipse

Mark your diaries for 4th April – Easter Saturday. It’s the Libra full moon and if the skies are clear you’ll be able to see a blood red lunar eclipse, visible at 8pm in Western Australia, 10 pm in Queensland and 11 pm in Victoria and New South Wales. Two weeks prior to this eclipse on the 20th March, we had a total eclipse of the sun in the final degree of the zodiac at the Pisces new moon, setting the scene for this full moon eclipse.

Both lunar and solar eclipses can throw us off balance by boosting and enhancing planetary energies and bringing subconscious patterns and desires to the surface. The Libra full moon eclipse on the 4th April will shine the light on relationships of all kinds, helping us see things more clearly and uncover the truth. Perhaps this eclipse will bring a new relationship or new life path you are destined to follow. Lunar energy is also linked to emotions, security needs and habit patterns. Major life transitions often occur under an eclipse as old, outworn parts of our lives are suddenly eclipsed, making room for new people, new ideas and exciting change. Events may seem to occur suddenly, but often matters have been brewing for months.

Sometimes solar and lunar eclipses bring loss and apparent misfortune – if this is the case for you, try and look at the lesson behind the event. As one door closes, another usually opens. This full moon eclipse marks the end of a 19 year cycle, so look back in time to 1996 and reflect on all that you have learned, so you can carry these lessons forward onto your newly emerging path. The Aries-Libra polarity deals with the issue of maintaining a sense of self without being selfish (Aries) vs the joys of being in relationship without sacrificing the self (Libra).

Here are some key words for the Aries/Libra polarity

assertion/reflection force/compromise anger/peace impulsive/considerate me/us compete/cooperate impatience/tolerance bluntness/politeness subjective/objective

Magic & Manifestation Course- Starts 15 th April

My next ten week Magic & Manifestation Course is starting up on Wednesday 15 th April from 7.15 – 9.15 pm in Elwood, Melbourne – I’d love you to join us. Here’s one student’s story

Hi Stella, Once again I need to express my gratitude towards your amazing Magic & Manifestation course. I just wanted to share my joy with you, that in the recent month I’ve had two agencies wanting to sign me on their books and I’ve just made my decision and signed with the best of the two. In the last three weeks, several things that were on my vision board have come true. I shot a big window campaign for my dream client General Pants, and another client flew me first class to Sydney. I kid you not when I say there was a big photo of a General Pants window on my vision board and a photo of me flying first class! And other things that weren’t on the board but are still amazing steps in my career have happened - I shot a big editorial for GQ magazine, Olympus sent me a free camera and want me to take a photo for a billboard campaign AND I won $2,500 dollars in a photography prize! (Natasha)

Date: Wednesday April 15 th – June 17th 2015 Time: 7.15 – 9.15 pm Cost: $395 includes all materials and a copy of Stella’s book The Seven Secrets of Magic & Manifestation Venue: Elwood Learning Centre, 87 Tennyson Street, Elwood, Melbourne

Welcome to the Hotel California

So many of you wrote to me saying you’d enjoyed last year’s articles on Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the Rolling Stones ‘On Fire’ tour, I decided to take an astrological look at another rock supergroup who have been touring our shores over recent weeks, The Eagles. As any self-respecting astrology fan will know, the eagle is one of the symbols for water sign Scorpio, so it came as no surprise that lead singer/songwriter Glenn Frey (6/11/48), guitarist Joe Walsh (20/11/47) and bass player Timothy B. Schmit (30/10/47) are all, yes, you guessed it, Scorpios.

The Eagles are famous for their beautiful vocal harmonies and classic lyrics on love, drugs and life in the fast lane in California in the mythical seventies. Riding through the desert at night; drinking tequila; romancing witchy women; dealing with broken hearts and lying eyes; their songs tug at the heart strings, and when you look at their astrological profile, it’s no wonder! Incredibly, every single member of The Eagles is a water sign. Drummer and lead singer Don Henley is an emotional Cancer (22/7/47) as is former guitarist Bernie Leadon (19/7/47) while former bass player Randy Meisner (8/3/46) was born under sensitive water sign Pisces. On their recent tour, ‘History of the Eagles’, Leadon and Meisner were both invited to join their old band mates. Leadon accepted, but Meisner declined for health reasons. But what of the elephant in the room, or rather not in the room – former Eagles guitarist Don Felder (21/9/47), a brilliant musician and creator of the iconic intro to the international smash hit Hotel California? Why was Felder not invited along on the 2015 tour?

While Felder’s skills on the guitar are second to none, being a Virgo with Moon in Sagittarius and three planets in Libra, he simply does not fit in with the band’s water sign signature. When The Eagles reformed in the nineties after a decade long break, founder members and crack songwriting team, Glenn Frey (Scorpio) and Don Henley (Cancer) argued that they had put the band together and written most of their hit songs and therefore deserved to be paid more than the others. Walsh (Scorpio) and Schmit (Scorpio) agreed, but Felder was resentful. He protested (no doubt with Virgo precision and a Libran/Sagittarian sense of fairness) that everyone should be paid the same, as had originally been the case during the early years of the band’s success in the seventies.

Tensions simmered beneath the surface and eventually in 2001, Felder was fired from the band. He sued them for wrongful termination and breach of contract and six years of legal wrangling later, the matter was settled out of court. But it wouldn’t have mattered if Felder were right or wrong. He was up against a group of people who made decisions based on how they felt, and water signs (especially Scorpio), never forget a slight, let alone six years of legal action. Water is the most irrational of the four elements (fire, earth, air and water). If something doesn’t feel right, it’s not right and no amount of arguing or discussion will make it otherwise.

Here’s what Felder said in a recent interview when asked about his relationship with the band: “I have reached out numerous times to the Eagles, directly and indirectly, with a warm handshake — not asking for anything, just conciliatory well-wishes — and the only response I’ve ever heard is from their lawyers. I can’t believe the anger and the bitterness, especially from Glenn. It’s really left me taken aback that he is still so angry about all of that and I can’t understand why, to tell the truth. I've been way past it for about 10 years now.” That’s a man with Moon in Sagittarius and Venus in Libra talking about a Scorpio with Moon in Capricorn.

The motto? If you’re thinking of joining a band or indeed any group of creative people or small business – check the star sign compatibility before you sign on the dotted line!

Featured Sign-Aries

From the 21st March to the 20th April, the Sun travels through masculine fire sign Aries. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, the seed, the new beginning, the hero. Its keywords are “I am” and “I initiate”. The symbol for Aries is the horned ram who rushes fearlessly into new situations, heedless of danger with no consideration for others. Arians are true individuals, keen to build their own personality and ego. The typical Arian is youthful, independent and adventurous, displaying strength, boldness, initiative and courage. Negatively they can be angry, headstrong, selfish, domineering and arrogant. Arians need to learn how to cooperate with others, complete projects they have started and conserve their energy to avoid burnout. If you want to annoy an Aries, boss them around or tell them to calm down! Each zodiac sign rules a part of the body. For Aries this is the head. When Arians are out of balance they often suffer from headaches, dizziness, migraines and injuries to the head or in more severe cases strokes and seizures. And the Aries colour is red. When we get angry we talk about ‘seeing red’.

Aries New Moon

You can tap into all that Aries energy in earnest at the Aries new moon on the 19th April. Now is the time to take a risk; do something new or adventurous; push yourself out of the comfort zone or dance like there’s no-one The Sabian symbol for 28-29 Aries asks us to listen to the inner voice and obey its promptings. Very few people have the courage to truly be themselves due to peer, family and societal pressure coupled with the inner critic or negative ego. Make a commitment to honour your warrior energy this month and act from a place of inner power and trust. Allow and encourage others to do the same.

April Moon Calendar

Launch projects at the New Moon, bring them to completion in the period from just before the Full Moon to the Third Quarter phase and wind them down and reflect on developments in the week before the next New Moon. The period between the New Moon and the Full Moon is the waxing moon (moon getting bigger and fuller). The period between the Full Moon and the New Moon is the waning moon (moon getting smaller and thinner).

You can use this moon table to select the most favourable days to slow or increase hair regrowth. Full instructions can be found in my Lunar Hair Care guidelines at but to get you started I’ve marked the best dates for waxing/shaving to slow regrowth in yellow and the best dates to cut hair for thicker, lusher growth in green. If you’re serious about Lunar Hair Care - order your own Moon Calendar from the Stella Starwoman Store then you’ll know exactly what time of day the moon changes from one zodiac sign to the next meaning you can fine-tune your activities with confidence.
