Taurus – values, money, love, self-esteem, resources. This is a nice little new moon in fixed sign, Taurus, steady, grounded, practical, keeping it clear, calm and simple. Taurus an earth sign is manifesting and building energy. Perfect place to plant the seeds of intention for growth and abundance. But….. hang on, wait a tick, looming in the background is a major change waiting to happen and shake things up even more. So perhaps not so much calm after all.

New Moon trines Pluto Rx in Capricorn + Mars in last degree of Capricorn. Pluto is Rx, going back over old stuff for review and transformation, of course with Pluto’s intense touch. Sun/Moon both connect with Pluto’s regenerative powers for transformation, healing. A renewed sense of self, can shine through. Mars is driving/pushing you forward with Capricorn’s ambitious vibe.
A time to rebirth a new set of values, which are more in alignment with your true nature.

This Moon may start of steady, low impact, then it may all change in unexpected ways, can also speed up, and go in any direction. Trying to control it will be very difficult. Uranus + Mars combo brings in some electric energy, also can bring in the breakdown or breakthrough.

Uranus, thunder God of change, the great awakener, lands with a thud into Taurus, then bangs it up, with a roaring match with Mars now moved into Aquarius. Both planets moving, might make for an angry hot pair.

Uranus entering Taurus 16th @1:16 am, for an 8 years stay. Then Mars enters Aquarius for along stay, goes Rx here, 16th @2:54 pm and squares up to Uranus @5:03 pm.

It is still a New Moon very important to plant that intention, on change and knowing in what direction you do want to eventually go, that will be the backbone of all of this.

As always go check out your birth chart to see how ALL of this will impact you.

Stay steady, be strong, one way or another, change is on the way!

Full Moon in Virgo – 2nd March, 2018!

sad

The full moon in Virgo opposite the Sun in Pisces conjunct Neptune. You find the Moon will illuminate through Virgo’s practical, simple, discerning ways, will bring in the realm of reality, so the Pisces dream/vision, illusion/delusion, clarity/fog may find it gets a reality bite.

You may realize that the dream or illusion you have been in meets up with the truth or reality comes home. What you have to do now is be logical, practical and honest with yourself to keep you going forward with that dream or vision.

Be discerning, sort out what’s really worth keeping or working with and what really needs to go. Virgo brings that dream down to earth and want’s to make it practical, useful and workable, in many ways this is humbling and it touches the heart when you can look at yourself and know the truth about your situation, here is the opportunity to be true and honest, so you can be of service to the world, in ways that allow you to grow, nurture.

This Moon may bust a bubble but that’s OK, let it pop, know that all is not lost, this is a workable energy, just stay grounded, don’t get overly emotional , (I know it’s difficult with this much water in the chart ). Know you can do it by taking a realistic look at what you want and what you are doing and how you are going about doing it.

Take the shine of it and see it all in the light of day, in your day-to-day reality, plus, what  are you really able to do? You will see that it’s still perfect just in different ways, you will find that the process and growth will be so much more rich once you come back to earth and look at it with a clear or new perspective from the place of who you really are, not what you think you are or imagine to be.

Venus and then Mercury (this Full Moon ruler) bump it up with Jupiter, more, to expand, luck, joy and abundance are in a trine aspect, there is more growth and things to come. Whatever it is you are letting go of now may not really be let go of completely, you can blend it all into new ways and into your new being. Mercury and Jupiter, optimistic, thoughts or thinking.

With this Full Moon be honest, real and truthful with yourself. Don’t live in the la la land or the woo woo as it won’t take you anywhere.

Keep it sweet and simple, find the beauty in the everyday things, nurture, love and embrace this quality. The growth, abundance and rewards will come in the sweet little ways.
Tender gently to the seeds and weeds as there is always more to come.

NEW MOON in CAPRICORN, 17th @12:16 pm (aest)
This moon conjunct VENUS, sextiles MARS, squares URANUS

New Moon in Capricorn, there is work to be done, the climb starts now in building the life you want. It’s important that you have a plan/goal, purpose for all that you are doing, as the work and hard effort will pay off in the long run. Going steadily up the mountain is the story that you are working on for the next few years, Saturn and Pluto in particular will help, support you in this journey. Be ambitious, have a goal, believe that you can succeed in your plan, don’t procrastinate, do not waste this timeAs with all Capricorn ways, be realistic, honest, logical, practical, go slow and steady, be sure.

Being close to Venus, it involves love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem, new beginnings in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows what she wants, hopefully you have worked that out too, with all of the Capricorn energy around encouraging you to make some long-term commitments for the building of the new you. If not get to it, New Moon start thinking about what it is you want for the next few years. Venus in Capricorn believes she can achieve and succeed. She likes to keep things real.

Mars lends a hand by taking action, gives you direction, emotionally motivates you to go for it.
Mars trine Chiron, healing may come about with the action or direction you take. Be caring and compassionate during this time, you may find that Venus themes will be part of the healing process for you, which may have long-term effects.

Uranus squares Moon, brings in a Sparky bold move, might be quick, unexpected ways of getting what you want to the Venus themes, adds a little bit of a surprise to the new moon vibe.

Keep in mind that the eclipses are coming, this brings in a little fate and destiny, keep an open mind, be flexiable.

Plant the seed deep into the earth sign of Capricorn, to give structure and form to your goals/plans, to give you strength and a strong foundation in the physical world.
Manifestation can happen and will happen, be committed, stay focused, keep it real, have faith in the journey.

SUN enters Capricorn, Saturn leads the way!

 

capricorn

 

SUN enters Capricorn, this year is a special time as the Sun enters Capricorn it meets up with Saturn in Capricorn and its been 29 years since Saturn has been in the sign that it rules. Saturn is finally home after being away for a long, long, time.

You are beginning another long cycle make this one count. You are building your life.
Sun enters Capricorn, if possible take some time out to reflect/contemplate on the year, or the last 3 years, look at where you are now, how much has changed, how much have you changed?

Did you achieve all that you set out to do? or did your goals and plans not become reality. Where did you Succeed and fail, take some time before you enter into 2018 to reflect and pause, to honestly look at where you are now.
What is real and true for you.

Work at structuring your goals, work at them, release some if they need to go. Look at the year gone by to see what is different. That is the starting point, not the dreams of last year, I am pretty sure many things have changed and so have you. Some things you may have wanted to change and lets face it, they really needed to  and others were out of your hands and control.

In Capricorn you may feel more serious, sober, conservative, cautious, responsible and ambitious, you will work better with more structure, organization and discipline, you also can feel less emotional or would prefer not do deal with to many emotions, let’s stick to the facts, keep to the rules and follow the instructions and plans, as you have things to do.

Be persistent, practical. Excellent time for making plans and goals, more chance they will manifest and crystallize.

Capricorn is a driven sign, they will work hard and preserver in getting what they want. Once the mind is set there is no turning back.
It’s about planning, doing, having structure, keeping your eye on the long term goals, being wiser, smarter, determined, ambitious and very persistent.

The goat’s ambition will push you through, keep climbing towards the top of the mountain.

Well like always, many things going on in the skies. Of course the big one is Saturn leaves Sagittarius 20th, (lets hear a bloody big cheer for that!!!) especially Saggies, Gemini, Pisces and Virgo will be pleased as you probably have had enough and enters Capricorn, less friction as Saturn is back in the sign he rules. Like always, look at your birth chart to see where Capricorn is in your chart and how you can work with Saturn.

Mercury goes Direct on the 23rd. This will roll the energy along a little faster. Bringing things, situations forward.

Sun also enters Capricorn 22nd (solstice) meets up with Saturn, just a few hours later. Take some time to slow down, to contemplate, reflect on the path ahead. Think about how you are going to build a new life.

Mercury re-enters Virgo, Moon in Taurus, 10th Sept, 2017!

 

mercury in virgo

MERCURY re-enters VIRGO, you now got the info, gone over many things, but mostly it was and probably still is a brain drain and brain F**k!
Mercury in Virgo works well here, watch your stress levels, don’t be in your head too much as you will get brain burn out, become highly strung :/.
Mercury joins Sun, Mars and Mars/Mercury will meet up again so watch out for that one again!

MERCURY re-enters VIRGO, earth, grounded, focuses on the details, your mind or thoughts become sharper, more efficient, you will want to analyze, be discerning with information and put it all in order. Moving forward is the goal, do the weeding out, take with you want you only really want.
Your everyday may become more practical, logical, get organized, more orderly work place or get your everyday down in a way that you can function perfectly, be methodical, have a to do list, plan, write things down and do.
Be precise/clear in your communications with others.

Moon in Taurus, earth, eat, sleep, drink, pamper yourself, roll around in the bed, feel and be in your body! And if you can’t do that focus on money, security, comfort and going for a walk in a beautiful garden instead.

This weeks card is the 2 of Pentacles

Earth element – material aspects of life including work, business, property, money, possessions, manifestation, health, body, finances, work, and creativity.

Jupiter in Capricorn

Usually you are juggling many things, multi tasking when the two of coins is around.
Change, movement is often the case, moving from one place or stage of life. Transformation is happening for you.

You may feel that this week you are just peddling and nothing is changing. But you have to keep focusing on going forward, even if you feel like you are getting nowhere. Change will happen.

We do have a full moon in Pisces and Mercury turns D in the middle of the week, keep this in mind as that will make the energy funky for a couple of days, best to try to find your center, balance and equilibrium. Wait until the end of the week for the movement for change to begin. Plus you will know what changes have occurred and you will know want to do.
