moon-pluto-aspect

MOON in LIBRA square PLUTO.
You want your feelings to level out, to find some balance, but the Moon hits into Pluto, so here comes that feeling again, more deep intense feelings come floating to the surface. Back into some internal conflict.
Best way through is to find the balance and hold on to that. And watch out for any rough, brooding, emotions that come up. Pluto wants to transform and regenerate you.

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

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)

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. ❤

  

 

 

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.

Jupiter square Pluto, 5 Aug, 2017!

JUPITER square PLUTO,

Since Nov these two have been meeting up or clashing, to bring about a deep change and transformation in your life. August 5th is the final phrase for these two. Expansion and transformation is what is being talked about here. This may have caused you to feel like you were being pulled from the inside out. Now is the time to sum it all up and to take stock of how well you are going. Some success and some failure’s for sure. 

You have needed to grow and expand your world, your beliefs, move beyond the old way of moving and being in this life. You have been stretched, and all things have been put under the  magnifying glass for you to see, where and what needs to be transformed, acknowledged, healed and of course the final acceptance of what all that is for you.

Keep in mind that other people, played apart in your growth, they pushed and pulled you to move. Each struggling to maintain some sense of their own worth and center. It was a tangle, mess for a while. You do have a need for power, success and are driven to achieve. Trying to find balance and your equilibrium again. It may have taken the long way, to get you to where you want to go, create and be.

Leave the old persona behind, time now for you to get in touch with your power center and direct your focus and energy to push you through. Direct your focus on moving forward to breakaway from the old ties, that bind you back and hold you in.

Pluto is the intense transformation, rebirth, that the soul is being called to change here. That does however ask you to take a very good, long, deep, honest look at you.

 

 

Sun opposite Pluto, 10th July, 2017!

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.

Astro Aspects 4th, July 2017!

 

ScorpioMoon-1

Some Aspects for the week.

July 4th…..A crossroads.
MOON in Scorpio, added the little extra zing or sting to the tail end of the Mars and Pluto square, that happened a few days ago, emotions may have been raw and your mood was even more so. External and inner demons have come about with this energy. It has not been an easy time. You have been rattled. But hopefully you have used the emotions to take some action, to make a change, seen something within you that was not right.

Pluto is transformation and it’s about transformation of what is inside of you. Rising up and out, something is being born.
Clear something out, clean, purge, great Pluto tools. Shift, clear out the old stuff.

Moon is headed for the full moon in Capricorn on the 9-10 and it’s gonna, be right next to Pluto, so it may also be a doozy.

Venus enters Gemini on the 5th, she will help lighten up the energy.

July 4th, JUPITER quincunx NEPTUNE, Adjustments, need to be made, look at your ideals, beliefs, faith you may be challenged as you review your reality of your life. Go back seven years, Jupiter was in Aries, now is opposite in Libra, how far have you come.

This is a bit of a reality check. Disillusion, illusion is part of this process, with Neptune, showing you this part.
What did you believe, have faith in, put your faith, trust and commitment to, what and who back then.
How do you stand now in all of this, are you the same person, do you still have the same faith, trust and belief?

This pair started the quincunx back in October, its wrapping up. Some clarity and understanding you can find as you move into August and September.

Astrology the week 26th – 2nd, July, 2016!

 

1e1dd5180c0bd7564df2aa493db11bec

Here is an over view for the week ahead it may not be such an easy week.  Even a little extreme in some ways! But with some info and foresight, skills and tools you can navigate your way through it with more ease and less stress.

Jun 25, Mars in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, exact today. Building over the last day or two. You push to go forward, with this energy you may take some action or steps to extreme, as you want to expand, let go a little, but you find you can go too far. Mars, maybe running your emotions for this to happen. You do want to grow as an individual. Try and expand with some awareness of who you really are, and what you are doing, as you can go too far, go out of balance in areas that may take you to places that will make you feel not so good afterwards. After this high energy day. 

Jun 25-26, Mars in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces, he settles down, not so assertive today, hey, you may feel worn out and do not what to do much, more of a day to dream, use your imagination, connect with more spiritual aspects of you. Easy flow day, which also may take you a little further out.

Jun 27, Mercury in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, you can feel optimistic, positive about life, good day to look at long-term goals, maybe give it some thought, you may find you have a view to a bigger picture. It is a square, so look at all the details, you might have information overload, be flexible and don’t go too far, Jupiter energy has a tendency to do this. Mercury is in Cancer so watch your emotions don’t go to the extreme. Then of course this is happening too. Still a push happening here.

Jun 27, Mercury in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces, another part of you is dreamy, sensitive, would like to just go away and float in the universe, try to bring some spiritual, aspects to your day. Bring some magic into your world. Between the two aspects it may be a very good to let your intuition guide the way. Keep in mind that Mars is close by, fueling you long.

Jun 28, Mercury in Cancer conjunct Mars in Cancer, your thoughts into action. That may come out with your words, it’s really is best to think before hand. This one can make you feel irritable, edgy, try to be patient. Don’t rush into things to impulsively. Mentally you can feel alert, ready for an intelligent debate, but this could also be heated arguments. It may leave you feeling slightly frazzled around the edges. Venus and Saturn are aspecting as well, so relationship or dealing with other people may not be as easy for some.

June 28, Venus in Taurus quincunx Saturn in Sagittarius, A quincunx is a challenging aspect, a need for an adjustment is being called for, something just doesn’t feel or look right. You can find yourself worrying about relationships, money, love or an issue can come up for you, remember Saturn brings things up to the surface, Saturn does bring in a limiting, sobering, serious vibe to the day.

Jun 29, Mercury in Cancer opposition Pluto in Capricorn, probing mind, good day to get to the bottom of a situation, but you can become rather obsessive about it. Delving deeply into a subject or really taking a closer look at other people or your own behavior is great, but don’t get too lost in it all, bring a sense of perspective to it. Other people may be a bit of a problem for you, anything Pluto is about power and control.

July 1, Chiron goes Rx in Pisces. More on Chiron another time. Will join Neptune in Pisces, Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Sagittarius. Chiron retrograde in Pisces July 1, 2017 through December 5, 2017. Chiron deals with your wounding, pain and hurts, it’s a sensitive spot. 

Jul  2, Mercury  in Cancer quincunx Saturn in Sagittarius, mentally you may feel blocked or limited, you may get stuck on an issue or idea, take another look, make a few adjustments, where Saturn is you can feel limited. You think you can’t, when maybe you can? or vice, versa.

Jul  2, Mars in Cancer opposition Pluto in Capricorn, this is not any easy aspect with these two power planet’s involved. Use it wisely and you can achieve many things, move through the barriers that have been in your way. You can have potential to move beyond a place you thought you would never get to. But watch out for the power trippers along the way, other people can be trouble and may try an assert their own power on you. Take it easy and always act with some caution and awareness, you are not in this alone, your actions do affect other people. Mars in Cancer, so people will be emotional or acting from an emotional place, stay steady, ground the emotions into something worthwhile and long-lasting.

Phew, perhaps not an easy week, but then way should this week be any different from any other week, aren’t they all just a wee bit rough of late.

 

Mercury cuincunx Pluto, 16 June, 2017!

 

Capture 3

MERCURY quincunx PLUTO, 16th, @3:36:47 pm(aest) exact.
A quincunx is friction, no understanding between two planets involved. I just don’t know or understand how that is going to work. But they are still connecting and they have to work it out, they need to make some adjustments.
Mercury in Gemini (mind, thoughts, perception), is going to have to be flexible here as Pluto in Capricorn more than likely won’t be, that’s the power and authority part. Mercury may have to choose what to do. You may have to use your head to get you out of it, come up with an idea.
You may find an obstacle or roadblock in your path, it may be uncomfortable and not easy. This may be something you just don’t get, and you may have to dig deep in your thoughts, an it be emotional, to find a solution.
A few twist and turn, and Adjustments and you are good to go.

Full moon in Sagittarius, June 2017!

full-moon-in-sagittarius-summer-solstice
British Vogue June 2012 Olympic Gold issue

This full moon in Sagittarius, sits close to Saturn, Plus Jupiter is going direct. This Moon will have a serious tone to it being next to Saturn. 

Like all Full Moon’s it’s a time of culmination, fulfillment and letting go.

A little bit or a lot of hope for the future, and some despair or disappointed about the past.

Go through the grieving process of things that did not last or come into being. Sometimes you are not ready to give it all up, but you know that the end in near. It can be disappointing when you realize that it is not meant to be. A turning point for change.

Saturn is asking you to be mature, take the responsible approach to your life, Saturn likes you to be realistic in all that you do. And if emotions are involved be emotionally mature.

Honor yourself and all that you have endured over the last few years, as it has not been an easy time.

Saturn in Sag has a limiting effect, it’s been work, real hard work, structure, looking at your beliefs, attitude and what is really your truth. Are you wise enough and mature enough.

Sagittarius is the truth, being honest with yourself, in all areas of your life. You may have or had to give up on something, either within yourself or an external vision or dream. It’s time for letting go, and to start again with a new vision, goal or plan. Look to another, bigger horizon now. You want to be inspired again, to have freedom from the ties that bind. You have the future in front of you, even if it’s scary and unknown, look that way. Sagittarius is the quest for meaning, purpose and truth. And there is always more. Dig deep inside of you and know that this is true. Have a higher perspective, believe that this is not all that there is for you. It’s turning towards something new, to broaden your life and you.

Jupiter is going direct, Jupiter rules Sagittarius, Jupiter is more, it’s expansion, joy and optimism. Sagittarius and Jupiter wisdom, experience and knowledge, Saturn is use it all wisely, come from a conscious place. 

Jupiter is ready to get going, get a move on, more to do, see and be. Out of despair, struggle and disappointment, comes opportunity to grow, to welcome more and to not be afraid. Have faith, trust in yourself, that life really is an adventure and through all of your experience you grow and welcome the future.

Sagittarius and Jupiter is the broader, bigger horizon that is waiting for you to explore.

Pause for a moment, allow a space to open for you to bring more into your life, as the old leaves to make way for the new.

The FUTURE is calling you.
