PSA: No, You Are Not An Aries/Taurus/Gemini/etc.

Astrological zodiac signs ARE NOT people.

 

There are no Gemini’s. There are some people with their sun in Gemini however. There are no Pisces’s. There are people who have some (never all) planets and/or points that are colored by Piscean energy.


Let astrology open you up to the multifaceted you. Not a diminished caricature or incomplete picture. Astrology has focused on more than just the zodiac signs for centuries across most civilizations. Don’t sell it or yourself short by reducing who you are to just your sun sign.

Happy Mercury Is Out Of Retrograde Day- October 2015

Hey there! Put the hammer down. Mercury is out of retrograde so now you have to blame your issues on something else lol.

This morning, Mercury turned direct at Libra. Along with some of the usual tech troubles people complain about, this retrograde very well could have highlighted some issues we may have had with how we make and handle relationship connections. Balancing our needs with our need to connect to others in all types of pairings could have been a repetitive theme. Just how much is too much…or too little.

Now is the time to apply those lessons that we hopefully should have learned about what we need to do to best connect to others. We are currently in the second shadow phase, the time when a planet moves forward thru the space that it just “traveled backwards” thru. So those relationship issues, hiccups, or musings that we dealt with before the retrograde and probably saw amplified during it, now is the time to be mindful of how to fix/implement them. Now is some action time.

Get to work folks. Cause the next Mercury retrograde happens in just less than three months in Aquarius.

Capricorn Full Moon July 2015

I’ll keep this relatively short and sweet
cap
Full moon (peak of short-term plans and emotional fulfillment) tonight in Capricorn (sign of cardinal earth- enterprising, respect driven, authoritative) at 10:20. Sun (consciousness and hero self) is opposite it in Cancer (sign of cardinal water- nurturing, domestic, emotionally driven) of course. The Moon forms a conjunction with retrograde Pluto (body of unearthing and rending for transformation) in Capricorn. Mars (body of ego and survival) sits near the Sun in Cancer.

  • Do you continue to search for what emotionally gives you comfort or do you move towards what give you fulfillment on a practical level?
  • How do you find balance between your traditional roles and new relationships that challenge you?
  • Is the draw of changing public roles and fame more important than your drive to set down roots at home?

It’s a battle of the traditional mother and father. Who will win? The child who loves and opens themselves to the best of both figures

Full of emotion

Tonights first full moon of 2015 occurs in the sign of Cancer. It is opposite the sun in Capricorn and forms a square to both the North Node in Libra and Uranus in Aries. Lots of cardinal signs involved but there may not be a lot of movement.

Why? Well Cancer is an sign that can impart heavy emotional weight to whatever planet it holds. The moon signifies our emotional nature. Lots of feelings have most likely been swelling for the last day or two and we are looking for a way to release them. Unfortunately, they don’t always come in an orderly fashion.

Which leads to the squaring of Uranus and the moon. Our subconscious need to be emotionally driven is having a difficult time being reconciled with what may come as an unexpected need to assert our individual self. Uranus in Aries gives sudden insight to our own selves as a single unit. This is great but it may not lend its self to a healthy manner in dealing with our emotional turbulence.

The sun in Capricorn focuses our attention onto being responsible and taking measurable steps. This is in opposition to the moon in Cancer needing to feel our way through. Practical and emotional don’t mix easily for most so tensions could rise internally.

The north node in Libra urges us to connect to others to further our purpose but that straight line is being intercepted by the moon in Cancer’s need to emotionally protect self first.

These are not simple configurations but they are livable. Allowing the flow of emotions to come is great. Taking practical steps to act on them is a good next step. Connecting to others in a way that allows for emotional growth of one’s self is another.

Cardinal signs inspire us to do, to move. Remember that small measured steps is still movement.
