Mars conjunct South Node + Mars Rx in Aquarius, 2018!

Mars in Aquarius on June 8th makes the first of three conjunctions to the South Node. Why 3? Mars is going Rx.

When Mars meets the South Node a change in direction. Leaving the old, attempts or taking action to free yourself from ties of the past, you let go.  Mars in Aquarius is liberation, freedom, independence and the future. It is also a good time to release any old residue of past emotions, like anger or resentment you have to past relationships or situations that you have had some hurts or trauma with.

Mars the planet of action, direction, initiative/aggression or anger goes Rx, this is where you do the re-do, you might have to wait, put a few things on hold, progress slows down. Take the time to reassess your  projects, your approach to getting what you want. Mars is the direct approach, but in Rx times it’s more introspective/internalized energy, you may not be as quick or spontaneous when taking action. You find that your instinct can be slightly off, which is why you think more/before than act. This Rx period may involve the direction you’re taking or wanting to take, future direction or goals.

Another good thing to do with Mars Rx, is to understand why you do the things you do or the action you take and the way you take it. Understand your impulses, your desire nature. 

Being in fixed sign of Aquarius, the desire to break away or free yourself is strong, you can push through the waiting period or delays, hang tight particularly if you really, really want the future you’re planning on. If not so stubborn or fixed on the future plan, allow this time to be flexible and open to see what else pops up or come  your way.

Mars goes back into Capricorn during the Rx, needing to reflect or re-group on the plans or goals. Capricorn, cardinal earth, rules, tradition, structure, old ways, what is or was the original plan or blueprint, you may also find that work needs to be done. It’s not starting again, like all Rx’s it’s slowing down, going over, reviewing. Something of the old and new may need to come together for the future projects. Rx phrase indicates that the process may slow down.

Watch out for emotions being bottled up, find a release for this pressure, Mars is a high, outward vibe and does not like being slowed or shut down. Frustration and impatience can happen.

Mars joins, Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter all in Rx. This also slows many situations down.

Dates for Mars conjunct South Node – 20 July, Rx + 26 Sep – direct.

Mars retrograde from June 26th – August 27th.

Astro Aspects, 12-13th Dec, 2017!

MERCURY conjunct SUN!
This has been building. This is exact tomorrow.

The Sun shines some light and Mercury drops you some messages, insight, answers, information and clarity into something that’s been on going. Mercury is Rx it’s part of the review, going over stuff.
Moon’s in Libra, breathe, balance, and a little sweetness to the day.

Life just keeps on rolling on, keeps dishing it all out. Here you are thinking, now the Sun being in the ever optimistic Sagittarius that the Sun would shine a little more brightly, but wait, there is this coming.
Mercury conjunct Saturn (28th Nov), your thoughts, communication, thinking hits it up with Saturn who blocks, limits, gives it the dose of reality to all Mercurian things and topics. Somethings can clearly be laid out on the table here, commitments or ending may come about. Are you in or out.
Negative thinking or thoughts are strong during this, you may be more conservative and cautious with your approach too. You may also be having trouble being optimistic about life and where you are at, in your life.
Can be a great time for working on plans as your thoughts are more precise and focused.
Mercury goes Rx(3rd Dec), hits up again with Saturn on the 6th Dec, so whatever is happening on the 28th will be up for review, revision or delay again, you think it’s over but is it?
And this leads me up to the Full Moon in Gemini(3-4rd Dec), Mercury also rules Gemini, so Mercury is strong, which happens on the same day Mercury goes Rx, plus this moon is aspecting Neptune(a square, not an easy one) just to add a little or a lot of confusion, delusion, uncertainty to what the hell is really going on. Back into some fog! Being in Gemini it may bring in information, choices/questions or options, more than one way of looking at or doing something. And you won’t really know until Mercury goes D on the 22nd-23rd Dec, of what the outcome is or what it is really all about.

Neptune goes Direct, 22nd Nov, 2017!

Sometimes in life you feel like you are drowning in the choppy surf and with Neptune turning to go direct yesterday, you have had to keep your head above the waters to turn yourself around and set the course for the shores again.
What was/is real and what was/is not real, is the question Neptune brings to you in Rx you get shown some truth into situations, the fog lifts for moment so you can see clearly what the heck that’s about. You have to stop the daydream, look at the little niggly things that are constantly floating around in your mind and get a dose of reality. So if you have been avoiding things, which Neptune is the planet that likes to make you feel you want to keep it all away, Rx phrase is like “no take a look at that” and “time to address this” Yikes! and you don’t really have a choice. But the problem with all Neptune things it’s the little sensitivities that you really feel and that makes it all just too much to bear at times. You may constantly feel so overwhelmed with your emotions, problem is, it can be everybody’s emotions that you feel with Neptune, he connects us all to the great big cosmos. You pick up on the little frequencies that are out there.

Neptune is direct now, so you can get to move forward a little further with the journey and back to the dream state, now that you have taken care of that and hopefully you have opened your eyes to what is really going on, opened your eyes to the truth of things that you felt were floating around you. Try not to go back to wearing the rose-colored again to quickly, remember the job Neptune Rx was all about.

Neptune went RX on Jun 7, 2017.

 

 

Mercury enters shadow zone, 15 Nov, 2017!

mercury RX

Mercury enters the shadow period (13 Degrees of Sagittarius) of Mercury Rx phrase. Here in the shadow phase you will get a bit of a heads up, on what may happen during the Rx for you, in areas of thinking, communication, travel, appointments, business, computer glitches and muck about, people from your past can reappear. That’s the general Mercury Rx stuff.
Plus, pay attention to what’s happening, in areas of your believes, faith, mindset, attitudes, you get a chance to restructure, go over, to make a shift or two here.
You may also start to feel a little antsy and restless.

Mercury Rx dates are 3rd – 23rd Dec.
Enters Sagittarius 6th Nov – 11th Jan 2018.

Mercury in Sagittarius, it’s a long stay!

Qs3WdDvffKT74f9yKJ6C_1082130415
Christian Schloe Dream On

Mercury stay in Sag will be a long one, entered on the 6th Nov – 11th Jan, 2018, while there will go Rx, 3rd Dec – 23rd.
Mercury’s in the opposite sign that it rules, Gemini is where Mercury works best, in Sag, the mind gets to stretch further out, has to think bigger, thoughts and logic will be touched with thoughts of hope and inspiration. It gets to weave a bigger picture to the story. Not so much looking at the details or facts, you will want to see the whole thing. So some of the facts may not stick as you are too busy, preaching about the bigger picture you want to paint. Which can be tricky at times, as you may not want to miss out on the details, as during the Rx period will be important. Best to remember this along the way.

Whats enjoyable with Mercury’s time in Sag, is fresh ideas, a new way to look at something, gaining higher knowledge or broadening your perspective on areas of life that have become too narrow. Great time to travel or go to far off places in your mind, broaden your mind with new stories, have something new to marvel at. Use this time to clear out the mind of old long-held beliefs, let something new filter in.

You communication style may turn more cheerful and optimistic, reality might just take a bit of a nose dive, as you believe that you can achieve the visionary view you have of life. You know Sag’s they are the optimistic bunch of the zodiac.

Mercury Rx will happen, you then have to go back over all of the this again and get a closer, slower, look at your faith, beliefs, hopes, attitudes and the new thoughts that have come. Pay attention to what is just too far out there,  being in Sag, facts are flown out, as you are in the mix of wild enthusiasm, filled with inspiration and perhaps some exaggeration of what you thought is possible.

This may turn it around and the reality check pops in, and of course Mercury hits it up with Saturn just before Rx stationary and just after and that is a one big whoop of reality, right there, Boom!! you may have to come back to earth, instead of flying high in your mind. Use Saturn’s rules and limits to let you see how this will really work out for you, this is the framework.
Mercury conjunct Saturn – 26th Nov and then 9th Dec.

If you know your birth chart check it out to see where this is influencing your life and where the Rx will happen.

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 goes Direct, April 2017

image

Venus goes Direct, Mercury – Saturn – Jupiter are still Rx, waiting for Pluto to join them on the 20th.

It’s been a somewhat intense/challenging couple of weeks, thanks to Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter, all meeting up. Jupiter triggered the now, very long Pluto/Uranus square which began in 2012, digging you up and making you change. Jupiter touches it, so more change and unearthing of you is being challenged.

Venus was not only Rx for her 40 days and night journey back inwards to herself, checking in on her values, love, relationship, worth and self-esteem, which makes her feeling tired and stripped bare, plus she also had to handle Chiron, her wounding Ouch!, and Saturn, asking her to face it, keep it all real, be responsible and do her work.

Well, hopefully you have, and survived the intensity of it all, but I have to say April is not over yet, so maybe hold on a little longer.

Venus moves forward, leaving Chiron and Saturn slowly behind. Moving forward with Venus you should have a good or better understanding of worth, and what’s really important to you.

Sun did conjunct Uranus, heats up, shines the light on freedom, independence, and the future. Separating now.

Pluto Rx on the 20th, @19° Capricorn and ends on September 28 at 16° Capricorn. Pluto is power and control, what, how, who are or has control over you or who, how what are you controlling? Habits, attitudes, behaviors, people, addiction, well it could be anything. It’s eliminate/remove time, your soul is seeking spiritual evolution, to transcend, to master.

21st of April Mercury Rx back into Aries before going forward again on, May 4th. You’re an independent thinker, and like to think up new ideas or goals, you might experience flashes of passion or thinking more about your desires.

Many planets are Rx, as with all Rx it’s time for going slow, re-addressing, reflecting, internalizing, you may not feel as if you are making much progress forward during the next few month, but whatever work, purging, changes you do make will be beneficial to your future.

Go slow, trust and believe you have within you the goodies to succeed.

 

 

VENUS Rx 2017

vrx
Pop art by Lana Del Rey Vintage

As of March 4th Venus has been Rx in Aries, she will also move back into Pieces around the 3rd of April.

Venus goes Rx about every 18-19 months for about 5-6 weeks, she gives you the opportunity to reflect on very personal matters, generally the things that you care about most, that of course is love, relationship, money and the value you place on all of them.

Venus Rx in Aries, is asking you to, internalize, go-over, review, your relationship with yourself, looking at what is missing or lacking in your life in the areas of love, money, what you value, your values.

It can be an intense time as she moves backwards and into herself and you begin to realize what is really missing, it will bring to the surface, what it is your really want in these areas, of love, money, values.

One big question you could ask yourself here is about your values, what are your values/attitude around money, love, are you getting what you want from all of your relationships, with all of these things. If you are not, why not? 

Here’s where you have to go deep and down into your feelings that’s the intense part, that is never fun, good thing through it’s in Aries, so grab your sword, face yourself and have the courage to go for it, unpack all of the old values, leave it all behind, make sure you don’t bring it back to the surface as she rises up again. Be brave, use you warrior and warrioress spirit to take the Venus journey.

Like all Rx periods people, situations from your past may come back, for you to resolve some stuff, that can also make it intense particularly if it’s something you really don’t want to come back to look at, but it can also be a very good Gage of where you are at, how much you have grown and moved on from. Time to sort it all out again, to get you back on track and moving in the direction and alignment for you to get what you want.

What I am talking about here is frequency and vibration, Venus is attraction, so you want to make sure you bring to you, your hearts desires, as she moves forward again, you don’t want more of the same old, relationship with love and money and your values around these two.

This can also bring in the people you want to come back to get some more of, (you know the ones that you just can’t get enough off, the ones your desire the most, remember it’s in Aries, the ones that turn you on! try not to be to obsessive here.) or get closure to.

General rules of a Venus Rx is that anything that does come back usually does go again, but hey take a look at it for what it is and be prepared, if they do go again. Remember they are coming back for a reason, and then of course they go. And if they don’t come back, in many ways thats good because overall less intesity for you. 

New and fated relationship can come in, best not to make any major commitments or get to excited until after this girl starts her rise up again around 15th April, as during the Rx you know it can have delays and difficulties, so take your time and observe, look and listen. Be patient.

Overall she is asking you to check in on yourself, and how you are going with all of the big questions around Love, money, how and what you place value on and in your life. With her starting in Aries it best to be thinking of new values, on Venus themes.
