December 2018!

The year is wrapping up, here are some of the astro aspects for the month. It’s been a wild year, one with lots of twist, turns and surprises thanks to Uranus blowing out of Aries and into Taurus.

The month starts off with Moon in Virgo and ends the year with the Moon in Scorpio.
Uranus will be the only planet Rx at end of year, goes Direct on January 7th in Aries.
Just before Mars in Pisces hits is home sign of Aries on January 1st, he meets up with Chiron(feeling vulnerable/sore spot/wounding/healing), here you have the opportunity to heal or work with a sore spot, to turn a weakness into a strength. Taking some kind of action towards making something better.
Which may be a good thing as this gives you the opportunity to take care of some of the areas of life that have been battered and bruised. Aries is the planet of action/direction but it’s also your identity, your fiery energized self.
Mars bolts into Aries on Jan 1st, back to his home sign, Mars had a long rough Rx phrase this year and now is ready to go home to Aries, where the action planet is strong.

Full Moon in Gemini: Sifting Through!

Full Moon is at 0 deg Gemini, November 23rd @3:39 pm.

It’s opposite Jupiter, which is conjunct Sun in Sagittarius, and squares Mars in Pisces.

Gemini is information, thinking, talking, communication, ideas and sometimes multiple choices. Sagittarius is the bigger picture, with so much happening in Sagittarius at the moment you may want to go big, be bold, move quickly, expand your world and be enthusiastic.

Mars and Jupiter are in very expansive signs and still in a square connected to this Full Moon adding the extra push to go beyond and expand.

Mercury is the ruler of this Moon, it’s Rx, going over information, details, for answers that you seek. Finding your truth or what is right for you is the real issue which will be in the information/details. If choices are to be made or looked at here again it’s in the conversation, information and details, it’s important to go over everything closely.

Sagittarius way or vibe is too sometimes just leap or skip over things, this probably  is not the best idea for now. Searching through information or getting the right information is what you ideally need to do, Sagittarius is seeking to expand and go to the right new place and Gemini Moon can help you with this, but it’s going to be in the information, details, questioning to get you there. Mercury Rx you may go back to something of the past or it’s in the past.

This is high energy vibe and you may want to move fast, however it’s better to go slower. Mars in Pisces, Jupiter in Sagittarius expansive energy can take you further than you anticipated. You might just slip into something only to find you have to get back out again.

Wait until Mercury goes Direct if you can, when it’s a lot clearer and you can be sure.

As always go check out your birth chart for a more personal look at how and where this Full Moon in happening.

November 2018!

November2018 (1)

 

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.
*
Nodes of fate, destiny and karma move out of Leo/Aquarius and into Cancer/Capricorn.

Nov 1 – Venus Rx enters Libra
Nov 7 – Node enters Cancer/Capricorn

September 2018!

September2018!

Well, the eclipses are over, September is here, Phew! you start the month off with 4 planets and Chiron Rx, by the end of September you have 2 planets and Chiron Rx, this will help with some forward movement and more clarity and insight. Some of the edge, stress and high intensity vibe will go. But like always a lot is still going on.

September 6th – Saturn goes direct
September 6th – Mercury enters Virgo, Mercury speeds through Virgo, only 16 days.
September 8th – Sun opposite Neptune in Pisces
September 9th – Venus in Libra square Mars in Aquarius
September 10th – New Moon at 17°Virgo

September 9th – Venus enters Scorpio, important info because Venus will start her Rx in Scorpio on 6th Oct, moves back into Libra, go direct in Libra, and then finally move back into Scorpio. Venus retrograde about every 19 months: Venus, planet of love, attraction, money, relationship, partnership, social, beauty and values.

September 11th – Mars re-enters Aquarius!!

September 12th – Venus ( 2° Scorpio) opposite Uranus (2° Taurus). This is the first of three oppositions and is around till the beginning of December! This is because of the Rx and Direct action going on.

September 13th – Mercury opposite Neptune.

September 20th – the last Mars square Uranus. (First on May 22nd, the 2nd on August 3rd) Mars, planet of action and Uranus, planet of freedom. You should know by now what you have to get away from….. liberate yourself!

September 22nd – Mercury enters Libra
September 23rd – Sun enters Libra
September 25th – Full Moon in Aries

As you can see it’s still jammed packed with action, and as you enter October, Pluto is going Direct on the 1st.

Full Moon in Pisces, 26th August 2018! Let your dreams fall to earth!

The Full Moon in Pisces is supported by a Grand Earth Trine -Virgo Sun, Uranus Rx in Taurus and Saturn Rx in Capricorn make up the easy and smooth flow. Uranus’s innovative ways of change, Saturn’s structure, rules and commitment, Virgo’s practical application for something to be fixed or improved on.

Pisces Moon is at the top Grand Trine, sextiles with Uranus and Saturn, makes this into a Kite (that’s the release point for the trine’s) here something may go or you find something really solidifies for you. Saturn and Uranus are both Rx, not dealing with something new it’s an old story.

Pisces Moon – dream into the magic, tap into the realms of spirit, a place where dreams are made of, let your imagination run wild and free to land onto the earthly realms for the dreams to be picked up and become real and true.

Pisces – something is dissolving, dissipates, melts away from you or for you, Pisces is the flow, find the natural way to go, you can’t force this into a particular place. Allow the magic of spirit to guide you along.

Full Moon’s the ending, culmination point, fling it away or drop it off. With the influence of the Grand Earth Trine, whatever is solid in your life after all the changes that have been going on since the beginning of the year. It’s manifestation time too, earth solidifies things into reality, anchors it all down. This is good, as the Full Moon’s a release point, to finally let go, so something else can now take its place. For some of you, you may find it’s the next step on the journey that you have also been on since March, May or even before. The Earth Trine is locking something in for you to go further.

Keep in mind, Mars the planet of action goes Direct 27th, this will help with forward progress, get it going again.

 

August, 2018!

August 2018!

 

Here is a look at what astro hits are happening for the month of August.

Aug 2nd- Mars Rx squares Uranus in Taurus, the 2nd of 3, Uranus and Mars meet up again to shake, rattle and roll us out of the past

Aug 7th– Venus enters Libra + Sun in Leo squares Jupiter in Scorpio + Uranus goes Rx, this is a lot happening in a day. Venus is in her home sign, She is feeling strong.

Aug 8th– Sun in Leo conjunct Mercury Rx in Leo

Aug 11th- New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo @18° Leo42′, another cosmic shift.

Aug 13th– Mars Rx back into Capricorn, back to some structure, into an earth sign.

Aug 19th– Mercury goes D + Jupiter in Scorpio trines Neptune Rx in Pisces, maybe some relief, a little cosmic push and flow, but with edge for the going direct part. Watch for any info that flows your way.

Aug 23rd- Sun enters Virgo

Aug 26th- Full Moon in Pisces @ 3°

Aug 28th- Mars Rx in Capricorn goes D, finally you may start to feel less irritable and agitated.

A peak at few aspects happening during August plus a whole lot more going on.

It’s still a busy month, with more to add to some stories that have been playing out.

Another eclipse brings more intensity and flare in the sign of Leo, it’s about being yourself if you can just don’t be too dramatic or over the top, to many other Rx and influence for that. This New Moon will quncuix Pluto + conjunct Mercury Rx + square Jupiter in Scorpio. Not the easy of aspects to play around with.

Well, like always hold on tight, it’s another whirly gig.

 

Full Moon in Sagittarius, 30th, May, 2018! urge for Freedom pushes you along!

 

throughtheravensdoor

Blend the past and the future together, one step at a time you move/weave to the next stage or part of your life. Let go, loosen the grip and most of all of have Faith.

– Grand water trine Venus in Cancer, Jupiter Rx in Scorpio and Neptune In Pisces.
– Moon in Sag trines the Leo North Node
– Sun in Gemini trines the Aquarius South Node.
– Sun sextiles North node
– Sun quincunx to Saturn in Capricorn.
– Sun, North Node, Saturn = Yod

Moon in Sag, seeking freedom, adventure, expansion, faith, wisdom and so much more. Sun in Gemini the details, information, communication and choices is the way to get this freedom. Move through, step by step, it all unfolds to take you further. And you may find it happens quickly with Gemini’s influence.

Grand water trine is the undercurrent that brings in a beautiful flow. Jupiter(expansion/freedom/faith), Venus(love/value/desire) and Neptune(spirit/faith).
This is useful as it helps to move you out. If opportunity comes your way, take a look at it, as it’s a stepping stone, to other ways of being and living. Plus the nodes are involved in this full moon, a purpose or more to life is trying to get your attention.

The Yod(destiny or fate), also known as the finger of God to Saturn, which is the quincunx, the uncomfortable part. A bigger plan is at work here, the external force that you have no control over is weaving the destiny of your future path. Sun shines (conscious awareness) on what you need to do/know, actions to take to meet up with the demands of Saturn(responsibilities/rules/limits). Has to be some boundaries/structure to work within. Which also helps with the grand water trine.

Sun points to the Leo north node, future path, shines the light on your purpose, identity, for you to fully start expressing your talents and gift. So shine your light, it’s the only way forward from here, no more hiding behind the old persona.

Full Moon in Sagittarius 30th May @0:20:46 am – culmination – leaving or falling away – freedom + new horizons.

 

 

New Moon in Taurus 15th May, 2018 – change it’s gonna get ya!

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 Scorpio: Darkness pulls you out!

Full moon is square to north and south nodes + sextile to Saturn.

The layers that you have build around you, disintegrate, the past that you were buried under slowing falls away under the shadow and light of this full moon.

The energy is high, emotions are intense, the square puts you in a crisis mode, you want to stay in the stable, secure place, that your kinda comfy in. But the old is worn out and stale/stagnate, it no longer brings passion. To leave the old behind is scary, to face the new is unknown, this makes you feel uncomfortable and unsure. Brings in the fear.

Deep inside you want passion, connection, your spirit to feel challenged and alive. you want an authentic feeling, presence and essence to shine from you. To hang on is hard, to not let go is way harder. Bring peace to your heart, seek inside for the answers.

Allow what your deep emotions are telling you to do, it’s time to cross over. To let the shadows, the pain dissolve and come into the light.

Saturn/moon meet up with a harmonious sextile to help you to cross, a gentle nudge, push for your success. This does help with some nourishment, nature, comfort and security. They will also help crystallize the changes from the past that you are making. You have a good chance of success, a positive change.

Go steady, be determined, be sure. Trust the process, feel empowered and follow your heart to transformation and healing.

New Moon in Aries, 16th April, 2018, Re-Awakened Warrior!

New Moon in Aries, 16th @11:57 am, conjunct Uranus.

Mercury Rx slowed you down, frustrated the hell out of you, now you have some new information, insight, realizations about all of that and you are ready for the new, filled with energy and enthusiasm/drive for the next step or action you take. Even though you may still be feeling vulnerable and know that a touch of courage is needed.

  • Keep in mind that Mercury squares Saturn(26th), don’t go rushing to far ahead full of enthusiasm or be too impulsive as Saturn will put the brakes on. You want to come out of the gate sure and steady, not wobbly.

Being conjunct Uranus, for the last time in Aries as Uranus enters Taurus in May. Being the last, you are wrapping up this 7-8 year journey, what surprises,  breakdowns/breakthroughs did you endure. Uranus, destabilizes situations that are not strong enough to withstand the volt it brings. Hopefully you have found some insight and truth to you(identity/Aries) and how you work in this life.
Uranus brings it’s on style and unique edge to this New Moon. What’s Uranus? independence, individuation, takes us out of the comfort zone, future plans, goal, visions, opens you up for change and trying something new. Uranus amps up the energy here, gives the Aries Moon/Sun the push to go for the new.

Aries is all about you, what action or direction do you want to take now, what areas of life do you want to start over again with, bring in a new vibe for the year ahead as Aries is the beginning of the zodiac year, it starts now.

Start of with using this high energy for a positive start for change in your life.
Set your intentions, write them out, get clear in your head about the direction or focus you want the year ahead to be. What did the Mercury Rx tell you or show you, part of the information or awakening to help you out.

But most of all how do YOU want to be in the year ahead?
