April 2015 Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse- When should us become me?

Hey good peoples! I hope this post finds you well, especially seeing as how it is a bit late. I think it is time for me to reevaluate my relationship with my internet provider lol.

Even with this post going up after the Libra full moon and eclipse, it still has useful information that you can use. Planetary energies and configurations don’t just magically poof away the second they move out of tight configurations. The energies build and recede. This is especially true of of the moon because the cycle of the moon waxes and wanes. New and full moons are high points in the lunar cycle. Full moons are high points that signal a full to bursting energy that has built up since the new moon.Sweet Moon Phases

Going forward from a full moon, we should be looking to clear away things and pieces of us that do not fit in with or assist us in our journey. There is still time to do so with this Libra full moon that asks us to look at relationships in our lives that we go forwardforward and acquiesce in because of our emotions but are at odds with our individuality and journey to embody our highest self.

Here’s the video. Enjoy.

Get Ready! New Moon, Eclipse, and the start of Aries season 3/20/2015

The first day of spring is starting to look like it is coming in with a bang. March 20th is a day that includes the Spring equinox, a new moon, AND a solar eclipse. Whew!

First up is the new moon and solar eclipse. The new moon (which is also a super moon) occurs in the 29th degree of Pisces at 5:36 am Eastern. New moons represent new journeys and new beginnings. They are fraught with promise and hope. Occurring in the last degree of Pisces, this new moon gets an extra push for us to dream of what we want before we head out to get it. 29 degrees is always a heady place for any planet and that is certainly true of a new moon and eclipse. Pisces wants us to dream, to not see things as they are but as they could be. The Pisces new moon wants us to get emotionally connected, with ourselves and the world. As a mutable water sign, the fishes give the moon an almost psychic level of intuition. Mutable signs tidy things up before a big change, they clear out the old to make way for the new. Combine that with the water element and we get a fresh emotional start for our new moon. Negatively expressed, this could lead folks to run headlong into their dream world with little consideration for reality. The inability to change their surroundings to suit them can start a journey of escapism that may not end well. Keep that in mind as you set your intentions, especially for this new moon.

Why? Because the new moon is occurring during a full solar eclipse. The meeting of sun and moon make for a heady combination. Symbolically, our conscious light will be covered by our unconscious reflections of that light. This will start at 5:09am Eastern and end at 6:22am for full viewing. Partial viewing times are from 3:41am Eastern until 7:50am. cleanThese are powerful moments because we have two options essentially- to allow our unconscious and emotions to come forth to be examined by the light so that we can use them as guideposts or to fear the unknown and stay disconnected. I think everyone can agree that option two is not really an option.

These two heavenly bodies joining during a new moon and solar eclipse can be seen as a merging of the feminine and masculine archetypes that birth every journey. The conscious and subconscious merging to make a complete person or the active and reactive natures that embody every living thing. Understand that this energy is freely at our disposal in a sign that always whispers to us that everything was once just a thought, a dream, an idea. Allow your creative juices to flow in a way that can give birth to a new chapter for yourself. Connect to others and allow them to inspire you to change your world.

walkAlmost a complete 12 hours later, the sun will enter Aries and a new journey begins. The cycle of the zodiac starts fresh, so to speak, and it seems very appropriate given the astrological activities of the moment. When the sun moves into the sign of the ram, our consciousness turns to not just new journeys but to ourselves. Like a hero that sets off towards the sun, the sun in Aries moves with vigor and a focus on how to make its mark in the world. The sun does not ask us do this for recognition however when it moves into Aries. It asks us to do so because new journeys must be continually taken in order to shape and define us. The need to pander to others is lessened because Aries gives the sun a tough edge that focuses on individuality and making your own way. A bit brashly and impulsively, because Aries is a cardinal fire sign, but with an ability to bounce back.

The Uranus/Pluto Square is still in effect during this time so try to temper your urge to destroy and rebuild with some foresight and planning. The Saturn/Neptune square could help in dreaming big if we allow Saturn in Sagittarius to keep a realistic yet optimistic eye on the big picture truth.

All of these events will have an effect on a big scale but where it matters is where they will be happening in your personal birth chart. A new moon/solar eclipse in the second house could mean new understandings of self worth and new opportunities for growth of personal resources. However the same event in the 6th house could denote a new diet or health regimen as well as a reorganizing of home and work by fine tuning details.

If you are unsure of where the new moon will be taking place in you chart and would like more information and insight, send me a line to schedule a consultation. As always, stay easy folks.

What’s happening on 3/17/2015

It’s Saint Patrick”s day here in the states but things could be anything but calm. It is still officially Pisces season with the sun making its way through the last few degrees of the sign before the cycle starts again in Aries on March 20th. The goal for all of us is still compassionate integration as a whole but some other aspects are calling for a big change in how we do so.

The moon is in Aquarius, growing darker by the minute as we prepare for a new moon in a few days. The moon in Aquarius doesn’t necessarily stifle emotions but it does force us to think aboutimages them and how they can truly benefit our current circumstance. An uneasy melding of head and heart so to speak.

Mercury is still in Pisces so our thoughts are still turning towards bridging the gap between our reality and dreams. We are thinking of possibilities still and it could  be enhanced by the planets growing conjunction with Neptune. Seeing beyond the veil is possible but the watery planet can give credence to false thoughts and plans when the two meet as well. The connection that Mercury has with Saturn is slowly fading so the ability to dream is growing but don’t forget to look for ways to ground those dreams in reality. Since they are separating, the heaviness and all or nothing feel of our thought process should be lifting a bit.

Venus has just slid into to Taurus so good food, good wine, and physical pleasures should be on the rise for many of us. Venus is very at home in Taurus and can be a bit self indulgent so keep an eye on what you are bringing in, to your body, mind, and spirit. (Folks love to call Venus the planet of the law of attraction)

Mars is still soldiering through Aries. Mars in Aries allows us to think of self in a very clear cut and visceral way. We move on our desires with vigor and focus, not necessarily a lot of planning though. The planet of the human ego is in contact with Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto today. The connection to these planets suggests that our will and drive may come from a place of expanding our desire for recognition (Mars trine Jupiter in Leo) but it will not flow so smoothly because sudden influences could have us shaken up to our core (Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries) and looking to secretly rail against opposition in authority(Mars  square Pluto in Capricorn). Self awareness in key to keeping a level head and not making things worse than they already are.

Jupiter is still retrograde in Leo. The planet of expansion, faith, and optimismb23efcb720327598060af06f92014044 is journeying backwards suggesting a need to for us all to reexamine what or WHOM we put our faith in. Retrograde planets ask us to slow down like they do because as humans we have a tendency to rush forward at times without recognizing that our perspective needs to change. Retrograde planets ask us all to reassess our perspective in regards to the energy that the planet represents, in my opinion.

 

Saturn is station retrograde in Sagittarius meaning that it is about to “go backwards”. Saturn deals with restrictions and boundaries. Sagittarius modifies this energy by asking us to search for the rules and boundaries of the bigger truths. Sagittarius loves to expand but Saturn does the opp osite so this is a conflicting but doable pairing. Be on the lookout for times where you can thoroughly find balance in the rules of your personal philosophy, not too lax and not too strict. Neptune squaring Saturn could have us being a bit hard on our selves but don’t fall into the trap. Look realistically, not harshly, at what you have done and how you can build upon it for the future.

Uranus is in Aries so insight into our personal self can happen today. Neptune is in Pisces so we are still able to see the beauty beyond what is presented but we also can lose sight of reality if we are not careful. Pluto is in Capricorn so we are still looking for ways to make room for new hierarchies and governing structures in our lives. The muck and decay we have tried to hide is coming to the forefront.

There is A LOT of talk about Uranus squaring Pluto lately, seeing as how it is the last of a series of seven that started in 2012. Think about how many seemingly revolutionary movements have taken place in that time period.RWS_Tarot_16_Tower Uranus squared Pluto when the Occupy Movement began in 2013, during the Great Depression of 1930’s, and at the start of the “Gilded Age of America” and the Chinese and Indian famine of the 1870’s. Lots of upheaval and change to long lasting structures took place. The Occupy Movement showcases a very real Uranus in Aries reaction to the crumbling and unearthing influence that Pluto has. It focused on the power of individuals to radical change to the landscape of their nations structures and their lives own lives. Remember, even though Uranus can push us to move quickly, we must keep in my mind that Pluto does not. The change that Pluto makes develop over a long period, for generations so move with purpose and wisdom of not just what you want for today but also what you want for your and your children’s futures.

 

Keep smiling good peoples and I’ll see you again soon

Full Moon in Leo 2/3- Make yourself purr

I’ve spent the latter part of my day sunbathing on the couch in true feline style, listening to music in true Venus in Pisces style, and laughing with every inch of my being in true moon in Leo style.

We have a full moon in Leo today around 6pm EST. It opposes the sun in Aquarius of course so balancing the goal of the Many with the emotional needs of the one is highlighted. Mercury is still retrograde in Aquarius so maybe figuring it all out today isn’t the best idea. Maybe, just maybe, we should call on the retrograde Jupiter in Leo energy to have faith in the paths we walk and mix it with some of the Venus and Mars in Pisces magic to compassionately give ourselves a day off. A day to remind of us of why we strive for freedom and equality for all (very Aquarian principles) and how that freedom involves some happiness, joy, and good times for ourselves too. We won’t drift too far from course because Saturn in truth seeking Sagittarius touches on Mercury encouraging to finish work so we can have more time to play.

12/21/2014- Winter Solstice and Capricorn’s focus

The Winter Solstice is happening today and a lot is going down. The Sun moves into Capricorn, the last new moon of the year occurs and Uranus goes station direct today.

At 6:17pm ET, the sun moves into the sign of Capricorn. We, in the northern hemisphere will experience the longest span of night for the year. Capricornwpid-images.png themes include perseverance and long term planning. How else could you survive the longest night and the harsh of winter that is coming if you don’t plan ahead? Personally, we should all be looking to plant seeds for long term gain right now. Sagittarius teaches us to celebrate in the here and now but Capricorn assures us that it will continually shift and we should be prepared for it.

A cardinal sign, Capricorn is not afraid to move forward but does it with slow yet even sure footedness that turns an acorn into a towering tree in the years to come. Being rooted in earth, Capricorn colors our thoughts with what we need in the material plane right now to sustain ourselves through harsh times. Are you willing or even prepared to tough it out in order to see your wants manifested in 3D?

All of these questions should be asked before we set our intentions for the new moon happening around 8pm ET today. The things we intend to complete this moon cycle should be ones that add bricks to the foundation of our long term goals. Rememberwpid-images-35.jpg.jpeg, Capricorn does produce results but they are often seen only in their full glory down the road a bit. Look to your birth chart to see which house or section of life the new moon occurs in to get an idea of where you should be taking steps to move along your long term goals this moon cycle.


Uranus also goes station direct in Aries today after months of retrograde movement. Everywhere we have seen sparks of revolution setting fire on personal and national levels. The retrograde motion of Uranus didn’t stifle the inspiration but made it much more personal and clouded by personal agendas. As it prepares to move forward, expect new leaders to continue to step forward for fights in personal and human rights. Also lone wolves with manifestos and explosive personalities will continue to rise. A redefining of self and what one person can do will continue to occur. Use this time to continue to be inspired on your personal journey and to inspire others. Not with grand acts but with a seeking and confident sense of self that calls others to do the same. Uranus moves slowly and effects are generational so the full span of what this placement will do will not be fully realized until decades later. Look to your birth chart to see where inspiration of clarification of self may be occurring in your life.

Libra New Moon 2014

There is a stillness with this new moon. Even though Libra is a cardinal sign, there are no major aspects to this configuration. This brings an extra peaceful yet focused energy into play. It almost seems to suggest a meditation like quality to the start of this lunar month. I say plan accordingly. Quiet talks and dulcet pursuits should be on our list for the next day or two. Libra already has a strong appreciation for beauty and tranquility so this should not be too hard.

Perfect moon to spend with a good friend

Perfect moon to spend with a good friend

This isn’t necessarily the time to turn up

Clear and diplomatic negotiations and interactions are good right now. The ability to not take opposition personally, yet still reside confidently in who we are should be the goal. Connect with others. Be social. Support the arts. But keep your raging party animal at bay. Make plans to seek balance and beauty. Appreciate the fine details (Venus rules Libra and Venus is currently in Virgo). Weigh your options this lunar month and take it easy.

Aries Stays the Same

When the sun moves into Aries, regardless of the hemisphere, change from the current state of affairs is ushered in. In the southern hemisphere, the change is from the blazing heat of summer to the cooler temperatures of fall. It signals a shift from the high energy, solar-powered frenzy of the spring and summer to a slower paced way of living. Many would say that there is no way to reconcile the differences between the Northern hemisphere and the Southern hemisphere ideals of Aries but it really is not that hard.

When the sun moves into the Cardinal Fire sign, it always signals the embodiment of an enterprising spirit. Aries as a sign is like a young man venturing out on his own for the first time. It reminds us of what it was like to start the journey of making our own way in the word. As far as linking it with the seasons of the Southern hemisphere, how much bravery and boldness would we need to start this journey when the world around us prepares to sleep? A lot and Aries has it in spades. Aries starts the journey when most of the world has finally settled into a groove. Aries wants to see what else is out there and push the boundaries because that is the most natural way for the ego to develop. “I don’t want to be like you so I’m going to change-up the game and do something different” is something that a heavily influenced Aries person would say. How else could the march into a completely different season and natural landscape start?

When the sun moves into Aries, we are all able to search out and let the unique qualities in us shine. We are able to call upon our inner leader to help us take charge of our lives, our personas and our image. No more hemming and hawing about it; the sun in Aries spurs us to move on it. Action is what this energy is after and it will find it by looking for the newest, freshest thing/idea/expression it can find. Ushering in fall is Aries discovering something new after the long hot summer. Instead of the bright, moisture starved colors of summer, Aries decides to shake things up by bringing in a stillness and coolness that no one expected. That is such an Aries thing to do.
