Mars in Aquarius on June 8th makes the first of three conjunctions to the South Node. Why 3? Mars is going Rx.

When Mars meets the South Node a change in direction. Leaving the old, attempts or taking action to free yourself from ties of the past, you let go.  Mars in Aquarius is liberation, freedom, independence and the future. It is also a good time to release any old residue of past emotions, like anger or resentment you have to past relationships or situations that you have had some hurts or trauma with.

Mars the planet of action, direction, initiative/aggression or anger goes Rx, this is where you do the re-do, you might have to wait, put a few things on hold, progress slows down. Take the time to reassess your  projects, your approach to getting what you want. Mars is the direct approach, but in Rx times it’s more introspective/internalized energy, you may not be as quick or spontaneous when taking action. You find that your instinct can be slightly off, which is why you think more/before than act. This Rx period may involve the direction you’re taking or wanting to take, future direction or goals.

Another good thing to do with Mars Rx, is to understand why you do the things you do or the action you take and the way you take it. Understand your impulses, your desire nature. 

Being in fixed sign of Aquarius, the desire to break away or free yourself is strong, you can push through the waiting period or delays, hang tight particularly if you really, really want the future you’re planning on. If not so stubborn or fixed on the future plan, allow this time to be flexible and open to see what else pops up or come  your way.

Mars goes back into Capricorn during the Rx, needing to reflect or re-group on the plans or goals. Capricorn, cardinal earth, rules, tradition, structure, old ways, what is or was the original plan or blueprint, you may also find that work needs to be done. It’s not starting again, like all Rx’s it’s slowing down, going over, reviewing. Something of the old and new may need to come together for the future projects. Rx phrase indicates that the process may slow down.

Watch out for emotions being bottled up, find a release for this pressure, Mars is a high, outward vibe and does not like being slowed or shut down. Frustration and impatience can happen.

Mars joins, Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter all in Rx. This also slows many situations down.

Dates for Mars conjunct South Node – 20 July, Rx + 26 Sep – direct.

NEW MOON + ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS, REVAMPING THE OLD INTO NEW. 16th Feb, 2018!

 

aquarius

NEW MOON + ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS!
Conjunct Mercury, sextile Uranus, square Jupiter.

A new moon, conjunct south node is looking back at the past in order to move into the future, but look at it from a new perspective. Perhaps take something of the old with you, but do it differently this time round?
Keep in mind that the nodes of fate/destiny bring in the universe’s way of getting life back on track. Some of this is always out of your control.

You may feel like you are working out what is the new? but so much of the past (people, beliefs, attitude, life in general) is still happening, view the past, what have you learned from all of it, know that you are different, are more than capable of turning all of the old ways of doing and being into a new way of doing and being. It’s may be a cross over feeling.

Mercury is involved so a lot of talking, thinking, ideas, insight, information, correspondence, news will play its part. Watch out for Jupiter’s optimistic ways and beliefs, “that it will all be alright”, as it may all be too good to be true and be overly exaggerated. You need to get the full story or picture before rushing in with a big Yes!

Uranus rules Aquarius, it brings in the zing, it’s in an easy aspect so not too much of zing or unexpected should happen, Jupiter’s influence is the one to watch out for, don’t sign up for too much, go with what you can handle.

New Moon’s are the new path ahead, being in Aquarius, it’s trying the new way, be open to change, change it up a little, be innovative. Aquarius/Uranus likes to do it their own way, not to happy playing by the rules, which means it may not be a smooth ride.

Mars and Neptune are lurking in the background building up on the 17th, action is faced with some uncertainty, confusion, delusion, denial even. It’s often the little undercurrents that mess you up.

Venus and Saturn are also lurking in the background building up a few hours after eclipse, get grounded into your heart or what you know to be true. Just in case it’s a bit rocky. Steady, slow is the best way.

Prepare for the new (might still be a bit of old in the new) don’t rush in, feel your way first. A few more bits need to come in.

SUN enters AQUARIUS! Future waves!

SUN in AQUARIOUS

SUN enters AQUARIUS uP in the air we go.
Leaving behind Capricorn rules and stable earthy energy. Sun lightens up in Aquarius, a freshness enters your mind and heart. It may feel a little unsteady and unknown, but that may be actually what you need.
Think about the future path/plan.
There is always a little bit of a weird kink in Aquarius ways, if you find yourself acting out of character or thinking out of the box, feeling like a rebel this could be why, you have found or want some freedom, to be different or just being yourself? Either way, go for it and express yourself, let your individuality shine out.
Reconnect with your true essence, connect with the world, be original, listen to your own mind, dance to your own tune, with the Sun in Aquarius, this is the only way to go.

VENUS enters AQUARIUS, she brings a new vibe!!!

 

venus in aq

VENUS enters AQUARIUS, you want lighter, new, you want to find yourself again, has it got lost, buried under the burdens you’ve been carrying around. Pop your head up and get some fresh new air, to inspire, free yourself up, become a little rebel, reinvent yourself, find new ways to approach areas of love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem issues.
You may even want a little crazy, weird and wonderful, get that “out there” outfit, “think outside the box” you gotta add that unique touch which is only yours to all that you do when she’s in Aquarius.

Go towards the GOLD, New moon in Leo, 22nd Aug, 2017!!!

147d0fd1a39c1f766cb5d7fd66a4ed70

 

NEW MOON in LEO, 22nd, Aug @4:28 am (aest) + it’s  a solar eclipse. Sun and Moon conjunct, Mars is still close by, Trines to Saturn and Uranus.

Eclipses are powerful because they bring change, they open thing up, the universe steps in to lend a hand.

It’s a new moon in Leo, tapping into your heart of gold, finding the gold within you. It may take time, effort and courage to leap into the future path that this eclipse will take you, it’s energy hangs around for at least 6 months. Like most things it does take time to create and Leo is about creating something new for your future life.

Saturn and Uranus, (both dealing with future stuff), in a harmonious aspect to this new moon, solar eclipse, you may find that there will be some stabilizing, structure, to whatever awakening element that you may find yourself in.

Aquarius is the south node, the past, Leo is the north node future. It’s time to create a new road for yourself. Mars is pushing you along helping with courage, action you take and being brave as it’s time to leave something behind. It’s the only way.

The past few weeks have been a struggle for sure, coming out of the full moon in Aquarius also an eclipse, so things would have been shaken up and stirred, mentally and emotionally, felt messy and intense for sure. Here you may feel somewhat stronger and hopefully less stressed or traumatized by all the events which have taken place in that time. Aquarius, ruled by Uranus is the great awakener and on some level you have been too.

Stepping into the Leo energy, the north node, future path, leaping forward following your heart, with passion, strength, courage, and openness for a more creative, authentic expression of you and life. Finding your true spirit/passion/purpose and shine it out into the world. With a pure heart, integrity.

But it’s not easy shaking of all of the old stuff, picking yourself up, when you have been knocked down. Be brave, know you can face it all. With the spirit of a lion roaring from inside of you, find the gold within yourself once more, let go of the past traumas, and pain. I know it’s been one hell of a journey to get you here, and you are not done yet.

Find your gold and run with it.

  • Pull out your birth chart, get one done to see how the influence of the eclipse energy will affect your future life.
  • The houses below will give you an idea of where the eclipse will impact you. Working with the Asc, you need to know your birth chart for this.

However it will be transformative and powerful

Spend more time by yourself, delving deeper into what the cosmos has to tell you. This is, the let go and let god, it will take, faith, trust and belief in a higher power and being. Surrender to spirit. Live a more spiritual life. Just let go a little if you can.

Take the time to be alone and reflect, review during this new moon, an ending is happening and a new one is being born. ❤

Full Moon in Aquarius, August 8, 2017!

ba8aaf5449df0db3dcf96c33f9efb5e2

 

Yes…..it’s that time again when the eclipses shadows your life. A turning point of fate!

  • Take a step back and detach from the old baggage, past traumas and emotional connections. Allow a space to enter for you to connect or reconnect.

It may be time to really take a look at you and how you see yourself in the world, what is your part, are you really being you. Or have you blended in so much that you are like the rest of the crowd?

Full moon in Aquarius. Take a look at the individual self in context to the self when you are in a group, community, humanity. How do you fit in, define yourself by the group. Aquarius likes the group, humanity and is drawn to this, socializing, friends. But, is not the group, likes to still be an individual, seeks freedom, likes to invent or reinvent the self. Not too much confinement by others, Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, after all, resist and the rebel.

How do you mix in, best approach is to be detached somewhat in groups, observe, have a higher perspective and view, don’t be defined by that group, you decide how much is you and how much you want to blend in or be in.

Sun and Mars are in Leo, shining it’s light brightly, time to take action in your individuality, identity, have your own thought, opinion, purpose and goal. Maybe find a new group or friends to play with that are in lineaments to you. A place or group in which you can shine your essence in a natural and authentic way. And, so can everyone else.

  • Basically you have to be yourself now. 

Watch out for the Mars element as some may be to assertive, irritable, rude and just pissed off. Be Leo, take some pride and respect in all that you do here. It may call for some higher ground taking.

Uranus rules Aquarius, so there is a breaking away feel to this eclipse, Uranus is Rx, so change is going to happen. Time to run with a new crowd, put some distance between you and others, have a breathing space for new to come in.

Jupiter is moving away from Pluto(power plays, transformation), Pluto is quincunx  this full moon, so Pluto can still bring an edge to the power games or mood people play. Jupiter’s in a harmonious expect so will smooth some of the way for you.  

Neptune is quincunx too, so some doubt or confusion, may be floating around at this time.  It may be a blur.

Fate –  Fated – Destiny, is here. The North node in Leo, is the place you are heading for. Fun, play, creative expression of you. It is time to shine your light out there into the world. Live, life by the heart. Find your passions and fire. What is it that keeps you going. What brings the fire to your belly. So….. whatever is happening just know that it is in your favor even it does not seem like it or feel like it at the time.

Time to be you, step up and out, live a life with more passion and heart.

Creating a new life for yourself! May 2017.

 

d28dffb7097c409eddf3cdf78382f840

 

May 10th, 2017 through November 6th, 2018, a new chapter is starting in your life. The Nodes change signs into Leo and Aquarius, the nodes stay in a sign for about 18 months, they are dealing with fate, destiny and course correction, bringing you the change that many may need after the nodes being in Pisces and  Virgo.

The North Node is where your greatest gifts, talents, potential and fulfillment lie, it’s always opposite the South Node, that area of life that you know, so well and do not need to further develop, it’s very familiar to you. You go towards the north (future) to grow, to stay in the south (past), you stay the same and do not grow.

North node, it can be an unfamiliar place, but a place you must go to. Moves into Leo, so lighten up Baby, now is the time for fun, play, creatively expressing you and your gifts and talents.

Leo ruled by the Sun, fire element, so shine out and shine brightly during this run. Mercury and Uranus in Aries more fire are conjunct while this is happening and a few hours after a full moon in Scorpio which is in a good aspect to Pluto who rules Scorpio, so this is full of potential and power to kick the Nodes off.

What to do when the Nodes are in Leo, it’s about you, embracing who you are, becoming brave, taking a risk, be more confidant, working on your confidence, playing and having more fun. The big part is about you bringing your gifts and talents to life and to show them and take them into the world.

And the day came,

when the risk to remain tight in a bud,

was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.  Anais Nin

This may take some bravery to do and it may feel risky, however now is the time to break away and be the individual that you are. Take a step away from the crowd, get your own thoughts, have the courage to be the leader in your life. Take charge of the world around you, for you are here to create a life for yourself and others, to be recognized, seen for your efforts, no matter how big or small they may be.

Leo node is here to help with your self-expression, what’s in your heart and how can you creatively express it. It’s about being passionate, in love with who you are and what you do. Drawing parts of you out, that are longing to grow and be seen, Ah, yes! To be seen, heard, you may have an opinion or two, something to share, come out from behind the desk, come out from where you have been hiding away, Leo wants you to shine and to let others see you and what you got.

Have heart, this is all about heart stuff, what makes your heart, happy and blissful, follow your passion, be passionate, alight the fire that is burning inside of you. If your heart is not it, question why, and how or what can you do to put your heart back in the game. Find love, open up.

Fun and play, children, inner child, the wonder of looking at life through the eyes of children, can come back and into your life with North Node in Leo. Get out and play, be in the present moment, leave the future for another day. What you do today is creating it anyways!

And most importantly…..

Let’s not forget about LOVE, Love affairs, showing yourself off, flirting all sorts of love and passion. As it’s about heart, put yourself out there, if you’re in a relationship play more, try not to take it all so serious, make the time for date night, sex it up more, kiss more passionately everyday, get the kids out of the house, or if you can’t, make the time to play, play and more play. If single, well don’t let anything hold you back, Flirt and smile, treat yourself to a new do or two, remember it’s in Leo, It’s all about the hair and flair!

Be brave, shine on and put your best creative foot forward, where your heart on your sleeve, because Honey destiny is calling….YOU!

 

As always check out your natal birth chart to see where all this action will be taking place.
