Nodes change signs, better self care will get you there!

Breaking down the barriers, the only way through is with kindness…..feeling every little heartfelt moment at a time.

I have the Cancer/ Capricorn Nodes in my birth chart, and I have to say, when I first learnt about the Nodes, the key to work through some karma, the place to head towards I was excited, until I realised I would have to discover and enter the world of my feelings, emotions, being vulnerable and then I just got scared, what is this place?, I asked myself. Then of course I felt them ALL!

Over time of course it gets easier, I did feel more comfortable with them, I did settle into them, I still long for the good old days when I was too busy to feel, it’s always going to feel better to me if  I don’t have to feel/care and don’t have to connect, let something in. Because if you stop for long enough, let all of the feelings in, it kinda creates a mashup of madness, hysteria, love and joy, it’s one big melting pot.

Nodes of fate, destiny and karma, enter into cardinal signs of Cancer (North) and Capricorn (south), the Nodes are re-directors. With them changing into Cancer/Capricorn you’re headed for the Cancer nodal axis to help you on the path.
Feeling! yes, feelings are going to be a major player in this one, you gotta feel them, follow the path that feels right, follow your heart. It’s less about the “shoulds”, doing or being task or goal oriented, this is still part of it, of course but now your compass is attached to the feeling zone to direct you. This may make you uncomfortable particularly if you hate doing that job, or if you just cannot stand that thing or person, if you’re just not “feeling it” anymore this is where you are going to get really uncomfortable and tired.

Sometimes you can forget who you are! with all the working, achieving and doing that you do. Helps you to focus on the external world, and to disconnect from self.
The way forward is through the inner world of self, feeling, getting back in touch with you. This is where the true security lies, being emotionally self-reliant, to be able to bend and flow, with whatever life brings your way.

So when your asked how are you feeling, now is a good time to know.

You’re leaving behind a place you know well, the South Node (Capricorn) it’s the physical, material, financial realms, the work you do, task orientated, the goals you set for yourself, the rules, being the authority, structures and guidelines, patriarchy, the old ways of doing, being detached, cold and aloof. These are all still important, however it’s now time to put a little feeling, love, kindness and care into all that you do…..you can loosen up.

South Nodes deal with karma…..that word! Past karma, past lives, the yesterdays of your life. What you need to sort out this life. This is also familiar territory, you know well, very easy to stay with what you know.
The North Node is the future, possibility of making changes. Not so familiar path that’s uncomfortable to you, especially for the work alcoholic, the doer, likes the rules or lives a rigid structured life, in Cancer/Capricorn, which is what you will be working with here.

North Node is what you gotta do, to master the South, to sort this out. And like I said earlier it’s about feelings, self-care, having a rest, relaxing a little or even a lot.

So, if you’re tired, take a rest.
Stop with the “shoulds”
Take the time to nurture yourself.
If you’re going to fast, slow it down, stop and smell the flowers along the way.
Sit with your feelings.
Ask yourself, how safe, secure, supported and protected do you feel.

The Nodes it’s a 18 year cycle. The last times we had the Nodes in Cancer-Capricorn

April 10, 2000 – October 31, 2001

November brings in some changes, big changes, hope you’re ready.
Some stories or themes will still be playing out as some planets are still Rx and have to do their thing, before they wrap a story.
Mercury goes Rx, which is always a treat.
*
Jupiter is going home into Sagittarius, Jupiter’s is a 12 year cycle, and now the big planet is home, (Jupiter rules Sag). After spending a year in Scorpio, where Jupiter took you to some scary places within. Once Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, you may be able to turn all of the emotional experiences into wisdom, understanding and knowledge. Sagittarius is the sign to help you understand what the hell that was all about, not just about you but the world you live in.

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.

 

 

 

FULL MOON IN CANCER, 2nd Jan, 12:23 pm (aest)

dreamstime_m_31836267-1080x675

Finding some release, relief!
This year starts right off with a super big moon in Cancer, it’s wrapped up in a water trine, emotional and the feels, with Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Scorpio. Mars is action and energy, you may feel revved up, may want to take some action, you are driven by your emotions, Neptune will take some of the heat or edge off Mars influence, Neptune  can bring in the flow, softer, caring, compassionate and openness feel, Neptune will help to dissolve. Be sure you don’t get lost in the emotions, submerge yourself in them, be one with them for to long. Sun is linked to Neptune and Mars this is the way out of the trine otherwise you would have all the emotions without an outlet.

Sun in Capricorn, physical, structure, rules, truth and focus is the way out of the emotional realms or peaks if you do find yourself in one. With this moon you may be feeling it all. Best to ground down, be realistic in your approach and with yourself. Bring structure and form to you day or time, be disciplined.

Cancer/Capricorn axis is safety, security, comforts, internal and external, mother/father. You may be feeling some of these play out or be at the bottom of your emotions. You can see where you are wobbly, not so secure.

Venus and Pluto are on both sides of the Sun all in Capricorn, this brings in some intensity, as you may be longing for a deeper, richer, intense experience, you want to feel the strong connection on much deeper level then you have been. Your soul longs for some truth and depth.

Uranus stations goes direct on the same day as this full moon, another spark to the start of the year. Uranus has been Rx since, Aug, 2017, and gets a going. Uranus “the Great Awakener” chaos and change, excitement, freedom can start to come. New ideas and insight. Pay attention to what is happening now, it will be part of the year and eclipse energy.
Uranus can also be sudden, surprise, shock, quick energy.

Jupiter, Mars and the Nodes are lurking in the background doing more to influence you. Jupiter is moving on from meeting up with the Nodes of fate, looking at the bigger picture before you, and Mars will prompt you or encourage you to take action on that bigger idea or picture. Mars/Nodes will be exact on 3rd Jan.

Full moon the light and dark shadows, illuminations, culmination, rebirth and releases, it’s a heavy way to start the new year off, and whatever emotions bubble up to the surface for you to see, let them come out. The more that’s seen or felt the better off you will be, look at what comes out of the shadow in the moments of illumination. As that right there is your truth. And as you move through 2018 that is the only path to be on.

Moon enters Cancer @6:10:01 pm (aest)

 

Venus square Jupiter, 17th Aug, 2017!

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

Venus opposite Pluto, 15th Aug, 2017!

VENUS in Cancer opposite PLUTO in Capricorn.
Venus rules, love, money, relationship, self-worth and values.
Pluto rules, sex, power, money, other people, transform and transcends.
And both have control and power struggles going on. Opposition is external, you and your relationship with the outside world, or other people. 
Something you have to face, and it brings up some intense feelings and fear. A culmination of results, things have gone to the highest point, an ending may come, bits have to get released or thrown away.

You may want something from another, it’s a deep longing or need.
There may be power forces of tension or conflict coming from within or an outside/external force.  Projecting your issues onto someone (or they could be projecting onto you), is a big y with this one.

Basically, Venus in Cancer, she will take it more personally, (her security might be attached to something outside of herself,) themes come under the microscope to be looked at, or played out. Within you, it’s about the self-worth, self-esteem, values, love, attraction, are you taking care of you, your needs, your feelings. As you may not get what you want from the other!

Feed yourself.

This may be a sore spot.

Pluto always brings in the intense undercurrent of feelings, raging, stirring from within. Most probably it is coming from an outside force that is stirring your pot.
I always see Pluto’s influence as peeling back the layers of your psyche, emotions are trying to surface to be released and let go of, and it usually is painful and annoying, but however it needs to be done. As it’s right in front of you.

This transit is happening for a day or two.

A grand cross is happening over weekend, thanks to the moon being in Aries, which lines it all up. All in cardinal signs, a call for a change and action to happen, you may feel pushed and pulled in many direction. Within yourself and your relationships.

This may be an if your up for it time, if not do/be the Venus trine Nepturn.

Moon in Aries square Pluto and Venus, emotions may be sparky and high, in areas of love, money, relationships. Emotions may run deep and can be in conflict. You can have trouble of letting go here. You want stability, comfort, but no.

Venus in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, these two are quite a nice combo, just don’t go overboard or to far in all Venus things. Love, spending, eating, you know, try some discipline and awareness when out and about.

Jupiter square Pluto in Capricorn, a push forward, you want to get somewhere, make a few changes, but it’s a tough gig.

Venus opposite Pluto, most relationship will be tested with this one.

Moon opposite Jupiter, you may want to indulge in whatever makes you feel good, Jupiter does expend all that is touched, Moon in Aries, you are fired up.

  • Floating in the background is

Mercury opposite Neptune – challenging, your mind is not get clear, Neptune makes it unclear, best to hold off on any major decision and keep in mind Mercury is stationing to go Rx, it’s a bit of a mind F**k.

Venus trine Neptune – harmonious, this may get lost with all of the above challenges. You may really just want to float along in dream world.This is a great aspect for love, plus any creative ideas or project, may bring in some visionary ideas. Escape into a good book, be creative, and just chill.

You will still feel the undercurrent of the energies triggering you. There maybe a slight feeling of disappointment, fatigue hanging around. Moon in Aries, you have the urge to keep going.

VENUS enters CANCER, You want a deeper, softer, sweeter, nurturing connection. The need for comfort and nurturing will be stronger, forming deeper bonds.

You will want to take your emotions a little deeper. Which can of course make things a little more rocking on the emotional front. You will be seeking love, a tad more serious, you want to take it up notch.
Your likes and dislike will be made from a more emotional feeling space.
She can be moody here.
Good time for some self-love and self-care for yourself and others, being a touch more sensitive to love issues. Or perhaps generally more serious.
You will want to connect with home, family and loved ones.
Venus rules love, money and relationship/partnership.

Moon in Scorpio while Venus is getting ready to dive into her emotion, so today keep your yourself steady.

Sun opposite Pluto, 10th July, 2017!

 492c5cf4b86f008b072ed26a1c801e7c
SUN opposite PLUTO, even after the full moon in Capricorn yesterday, the burn is still happening loud and strong, you can feel it still today. You are worn out and tired. Sun and Pluto are still illuminating and bringing forth insight of the deeper issues within.
It’s intense times, Sun vitality, Pluto, transformation.
It is a point of culmination, a mid-point, turning point, walk away, leave that behind, it ‘s not working out.
What ever it is you are tired of it, worn out.
You can feel the outside pressure around you from within and from others.
Finding what’s in you and what is your truth, time to shine a little more, as the old is slowly being peeled away.
This is a pop energy as in, you could, be wise and channel it positive ways for you.

Full Moon in Capricorn, 2017!

Full Moon In Capricorn, 9th July, 2017, 17 degrees, @2:07:21 pm.

Sun, Moon, Mars, Pluto, and Jupiter are the players.

Transcend, transform to new heights!

You’ve probably have had Enough, the internal, external emotional pressure swirling around you. The extremes of emotions are pulling, pushing and probing you, you want things to change and sometimes it takes the external factors around you, with them pushing for you to make them. What is making you wobble or rattled. And why?

You have to keep pushing through the boundaries of the old, to get to the other side. This Moon as the Oomph to get you through, it will impact you on some level in areas where you have had, enough! Pluto and Mars, clash and collide. A battle is raging inside and it wants you to participate, to take notice. 

This is a moon about power, control and transformation.

And this full moon may help you to really see what is bothering you. Mars and Pluto really bring in the anger, strength, power for you to look at ALL of your emotions, full moon illuminates all that is hidden for you to see, reflects back to you.  With Pluto and Mars in the mix it can be messy, murky. 

Allow the burn to work in positive ways to enhance your life.

Building up to this moon has not been an easy one, it’s more than likely dragged up some festering emotions from within your psyche, which are burning inside of you. On some level you want to let go of control and just scream, take out your sword and cut it all away, you want to feel powerful or at least feel that you have some. The more you can contain and control all of the amped up emotions and direct it into something worthwhile and creative the better off you will be in the long run.

What is it you want? what fear does this Moon bring up, what old habits, beliefs, structures are working within to breakdown. Working from a place of some awareness, over the last few years you have woken up to how you work and function, to change anything that’s been there for a long time is hard, difficult, uncomfortable and this is what you are facing here.

A letting something go to gain something else, making room for more to come in.

The burning rage that is within you, use it as fuel. Be focused and determined, don’t let things, people, situations seep in and disarm you. Keep your eye on your own vision, goal, future.

Anything Pluto, is an internal process, it’s about you growing up and standing up inside, being aware of the power and control you have over your emotions and actions. Work with Pluto energy of great transformation, to bring down the old that you are no longer. Pluto removes, what is not yours anymore. 

  •  Jupiter is bringing the magnifying glass, to expand all of the energy for you to get a really good look at what is boiling and festering.

Use your emotions as a gauge, a point of awareness, to work on all of the areas that need to transform.

  •  Remember to take some self-care, do not be too hard on yourself, don’t go into the negative place for too long, don’t let the frustration bring you down, have patience with yourself and others. 

Keep in mind this may have a wonderful, refreshing positive effect on you. You may discover that passion, love or lust for life, making you to want to step out and into your true self. This Moon may spark some of it.  North Node in Leo is dying for you to shine, be the original you. Show some of that talent.

Blessing under this wild, Moon.
