Phew! that’s been a wild ride!

Eclipses come in groups, every 6 months, eclipses happen in the same signs for roughly 2 years. The first eclipse in Leo happened in February 2017, the last will be January 2019. So you will be wrapping up this Leo themed season of eclipse then, what has the Lion been showing you?

As you know Eclipses shake or shape the path you are on, to me the eclipse are the universe way of shaking, stepping in or stepping you up to get you back on track or on purpose. It’s a helping hand when you are losing your way, of course it’s not easy, as it’s sometimes a bit of a surprise.

It’s in the theme of Leo, this is where all of the action or path forward is in.

Leo – attraction, attention, purpose or passion, pride or proud. It’s a time to step into leadership in your life, to look forward with a strength, courage and heart of Lion King. The Leo eclipses over the last year or so, is showing, asking you to be brave, to find that confidence within to conquer your fears and to come out from behind the shadow of the old self that has lacked the confidence to shine, to be who you really are and to show off the gifts that lay within you. The light is shining here.

Sun and Moon conjunct Mercury Rx, illuminating some information, communication, thoughts or thinking about what Mercury is going back over in some area of life. It’s still all up in the air and the information may still be not ready to settle. Still some uncertainty perhaps. Lots of thinking and going over going on here. Mercury is the point in the Yod, talking to God.

The Yod (finger of God) – between Mercury, Pluto and Neptune, a higher purpose, path or way is involved here. Pluto (power and transformation), Neptune, the mystic, dream, a pull towards a dream, may help you to get what you want. Mercury is the point, talking to God, with the adjustment to make it happen.

Mercury square Jupiter, your might have big plans or thoughts that you want to take far, (or something is or was taken to far) you want to broaden your horizons. Jupiter can be expansive energy, likes to exaggerate. Try not to be too over the top. This is where you have to not let the Leo ego or false confidence take over, a higher purpose is at play here. **Jupiter trines Neptune 19th, the plans or ideas that you want, if in alignment with your higher plan or purpose you will be able to take this further.** 

Eclipses, set the way, correct the course, an element of trust, faith, and letting go and handing over plays a very big part. Best approach is to go with it. You will see what the end result is in 2019 when the Leo season of eclipses are over.

Like always look at your own birth chart to see where all of this is happening.

New Moon solar eclipse in Cancer, 13 July, @12:49 pm, 2018; The universe addresses your life!

Sun and Moon opposite Pluto Rx, a water trine between, Sun/Moon, Neptune Rx in Pisces, Jupiter in Scorpio, this is a loose water trine that is floating in the background +
A grand earth trine, Saturn Rx in Capricorn, Venus in Virgo and Uranus in Taurus, this is a tighter trine stabilizing and grounding down.

The eclipse season start’s – 3 back to back, second is a total lunar eclipse in Aquarius on July 27th. Then on August 11th, the final eclipse in the grand sign of Leo, hold on to your bits as you all know…..eclipses shakes it up. The universe address your life, and you just never know how that’s going to happen. Eclipses bring in the new, a turning point and change in directions.

A new beginnings may happen in Cancer themes around the home, family, your private innermost self, nurturing/mother/child/self-care and needs/comfort/security this is challenged by Pluto’s anything that’s no longer serving or needed will be taken away.

Pluto (what will be brought to the surface?) the planet of death/endings/removal, transformation/regeneration will be influencing this new moon with a powerful transformation in some area of your life. You may find you have endings happening, Pluto is known for digging deep, what’s not serving you anymore will be removed. Pluto is saying, whatever is trying, dying, leaving, ending in your life you need to let it go, look towards the new that is wanting to enter your life.

The water trine is floating undercurrent to bring in some benefits, to bring something in. Pluto may take away, but the trine can also bring something in. So you might let go and grab for the new at the same time.

The earth trine is grounding all of this, Saturn helps to steady and anchor with rules, structure, perhaps a commitment, Uranus is change or the new, Venus, it may come in the form of relationship, partnership, money, love or areas of self-esteem and values. Venus in Virgo, likes to beautify areas of your life,  a touch of making something better can be appealing.

Jupiter in Scorpio, the planet of joy, luck, growth and abundance is Direct on(July 10), this is a positive influence, helping us to know where we want to expand our energy next. May help you to know in which area of life to focus on. Even though there’s still 5 planets Rx this will be some movement for you.

Whatever is happening stay grounded and practical, be an adult and take your cues from the universe.

Have a look at your personal birth chart to see how the eclipse will be showing up in your life.

 

 

 

J U L Y – 2 0 1 8!

JULY - 2018!
July will be a big month, the eclipses are coming, the nodes of fate switches things up and around, In the sign of Cancer and Aquarius, are you ready for this?
July is another action packed month of planetary movements and change ups.
Good vibe in July, Jupiter goes Direct, a good thing, a little luck or joy may start to turn things around, especially for Saggies and Pisces as Jupiter rules these two sign.

Jul 5 – Chiron Retrograde 2°Aries – planet of wounds/healing, like all Rx phrase it’s an inward journey, Chiron always offers a gift, take the time out to do some healing work on the sore spots that have been poked, find the gift amongst the pain, as this is your offering.

Jul 9 – Venus enters Virgo – planet of love, money, relationships, likes/dislikes enters Virgo, mutable earth, be practical, realistic and humble, she gets more real and focused here. You may have a few choices to make, one of Virgo’s qualities is being discerning.

Jul 10 – Jupiter Direct 13°Scorpio – Bah Boom! planet of luck, abundance, growth and expansion goes Direct, might bring in a little shine and lift off some of the heavy emotions.

Jul 13 – New Moon solar eclipse in 20° Cancer – well, you never really know what is going to happen here, openings and closing.

Jul 22 – Sun enters Leo – you get to shine a little brighter.

Jul 26 – Mercury Retrograde 23°Leo – planet of communication, information, you all know about Mercury Rx.

Jul 27 – Full Moon Lunar eclipse 4° Aquarius – Yes, another eclipse, it’s always tricky, a light goes off and on, what changes during this time, fate/universe shifts thing around. It may take a while to see the full measure of the eclipses, they can last up to 6 months.

Jupiter goes Direct, Chiron and Mercury go Rx, still many planet in Rx phrase, slowing it all down. Adds to the slog, however it does give you time to breathe and to pace yourself, slow down, go over situations in your life. To see what was missed or overlooked before.

And… it all just keeps going on, and really, why should this month be any different.
It’s all still a mish-mash of chaos and uncertainty, might stay that way until September, so go grab your birth chart with glee and see where the action is taking place for you on a more personal level.

 

 

 

 

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.

FULL MOON + ECLIPSES IN LEO! Time to change it up!31 Jan, 2018.

b56e93d77883489565be65793faa86a8--leo-html
Full moon times are a culmination, conclusion, to reset yourself. Let go of the emotional stuff that has been building up, what does not serve you anymore, and what’s not working out. Of course this one is an eclipse, it has more of an impact.

Fate – destiny, gains – loss step in and change the course, it a course correction time. What’s meant to be will be and what is not will go, when the leaving happens, you have to let go, open up and wait for the new and what yours to come in.

Eclipses play out for about 3 month or more, the whole story is yet to unfold, best to be patient, go with it. However there will be ending and beginnings, it’s usually big stuff, especially if it’s hitting some major points in your chart. Often it’s a real turning point in your life.
Go check out your chart to see!

Nothing stays the same, change happens and here you get a helping hand form the universe, which may seem very difficult and unfair at times, but you gotta have faith, trust, believe the universe is always working in your favor.

It’s in Leo, have HEART, be brave and most of all *SHINE* for the individual that you are.
Yeah, baby!

Astro bits, 3 Sept, 2017!

SUN opposite NEPTUNE, MARS, MERCURY, hit the eclipse spot. MOON in Aquarius.
Sun and Neptune meet up (this will be around for the next few days, exact around the full moon in Pisces, on the 6th), things can start to get foggy, you feel a little mellow, this is a great aspect to go with the flow, use your imagination, dream, write, you can be more sensitive and intuitive.
Be as clear as you can with your words and actions, this can lead to misunderstanding, delusions, deception. As you can often feel as if you do not know what is real and true with this one. I always find Neptune a tricky one.
Mars and Mercury hit the eclipses spot, some energy is being dumped on that one again, if you felt it last go round, your likely be feeling it again with some more input/change to that spot.
Moon in Aquarius, you might want to detach from your emotions, unplug, become more of a thinker, find solutions to your problems this way.

Like always check out your birth chart to see how this is working in your life.

Astro bits, Mercury Rx, re-enters Leo, 31st, Aug, 2017!

4cc1d05da2f5c96c67df6b024b0d1607--cg-art-female-warriors

MOON @29 degrees Sag, moves into Capricorn, well in about 20 mins. out of the fire into earth, ground down, get practical and real.
Mercury re-enter Leo 1st Sep, @1:26:52 am, rethinking a previous opinion or idea, go over the ideas that spark you up and connect with your HEART. This is part of the go for Gold that is with in you.
Reflecting on, going over, creativity, self-expression, romance.
There is something that you need to address, it’s come up again.
Mercury goes direct from September 5th (its shadow ends on September 19th).
But before this, it triggers the Solar eclipse spot 28 degrees, with Mars in Leo September 2-3, pay attention to those days and before this too, as this will be Sparky and significant.
If you know your birth chart, look at it , to see where all this action is happening for you personally.

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.

 

Keep in mind the past is Aquarius, this is a place/house where life/stuff is getting mucked about, to be let go off. Leo is the future, a place where you need to create a new expression.

Leo Asc – 1st house(future) and 7th house(past)

You are birthing a creative new way of expressing yourself in relationship/partnership, you are being more driven by instinct and desire you go out and get what you want, instinctual, natural impulse working with you. Primal energy coming through.

Cancer Asc – 2nd – 8th house

You may find that you can be resourceful, areas around money, self-worth, how resourceful are you, or do you depend on others too much (8th house stuff)? Time for you to get resourceful and look out for yourself.

Gemini Asc – 3rd – 9th house

Finding new creative ways to communicate, thinking for yourself, networking, immediate environment. Siblings, talking,  writing, communication. Your mind, your perception.

Taurus Asc – 4th – 10th house

Pisces Asc – 6th – 12th house

Find creative new ways to get into your daily life, work, give, be of service to others, look at the details of your life. Get real and have a reality check. Pay attention to you body, health and healing. Get a job if you need to, stop dreaming, or better still bring the dream into reality.

Find new and creative ways in your intimate relationships, or you really need to get intimate, yes that’s right go get yourself some.

However it will be transformative and powerful

Sagittarius Asc – 9th – 3rd house

Virgo Asc – 12th – 6th house 

Finding ways to create a more spiritual life, connect with the divine, mediate. Get out of the daily grind of work and the details. 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. ❤

  

 

 

Venus square Jupiter, 17th Aug, 2017!

13687618944_0413536c7a_z-500x311
VENUS square JUPITER
I generally, think and feel anything that involves Venus and Jupiter is good. With Venus coming off here hit with Pluto which was, well just too much, felt like unraveling or coming undone? Here she is leveling out somewhat, helping you find some center or slightly clearer view.
Use this to level out your emotions, try to feel good. Depending on how the past two weeks have been, you may be real good :)) or just good :/. This may give you time to just lift your head a little from the madness.
 
Good day for socializing, anything that makes you feel good. Keep in mind that Jupiter likes to expand things, so you may go overboard or take it all to far.
Particularly in areas of Love, money, beauty, attraction or relationship.

Moon moves into Cancer early tomorrow, she will move through her third quarter phase, this is the beginning of the end phase, parts are dying off and bits remain, then balsamic phrase, parts are still dying off, and you are waiting to see what is left for you to use, plant and work with, waiting for the new to emerge, this is a real going inward phrase, before she moves into Leo for the big new moon eclipse

Yesterday, you had a grand cross and many other aspects going on. Today you have a fire trine, plus Moon will conjunct Uranus.

Trines are harmonious, easy, aspects, with ease you can achieve, being a fire trine, it’s brings in a lighter more passionate feel, be creative, passionate and action you take will be easier and achieve success. The downside is you can be lazy and content with it all. With the Neptune aspects also in harmonious aspects, you may find that the slow and easy road is best.

Sun in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius, brings in some stability, holds it together.

Moon in Aries trine Sun, emotions can be more in tune with each other, some balance can be achieved.

Moon trine Saturn, emotions and being limited may lift a bit here, Saturn usually contracts, keeps it all in, here you may find some release or pressure is off.

Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries, this can bring in the random, surprise element, might spark it all up more.

Mercury is now Rx, that’s kinda slippery, going Rx opposite Neptune, it’s a blur for a few moments. Gotta get a grip.

You are still in between eclipses, keep that in mind, as that is the anything can happen place. Also it is a rough time and spot.
