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.

 

 

 

J U L Y – 2 0 1 8!

JULY - 2018!
July will be a big month, the eclipses are coming, the nodes of fate switches things up and around, In the sign of Cancer and Aquarius, are you ready for this?
July is another action packed month of planetary movements and change ups.
Good vibe in July, Jupiter goes Direct, a good thing, a little luck or joy may start to turn things around, especially for Saggies and Pisces as Jupiter rules these two sign.

Jul 5 – Chiron Retrograde 2°Aries – planet of wounds/healing, like all Rx phrase it’s an inward journey, Chiron always offers a gift, take the time out to do some healing work on the sore spots that have been poked, find the gift amongst the pain, as this is your offering.

Jul 9 – Venus enters Virgo – planet of love, money, relationships, likes/dislikes enters Virgo, mutable earth, be practical, realistic and humble, she gets more real and focused here. You may have a few choices to make, one of Virgo’s qualities is being discerning.

Jul 10 – Jupiter Direct 13°Scorpio – Bah Boom! planet of luck, abundance, growth and expansion goes Direct, might bring in a little shine and lift off some of the heavy emotions.

Jul 13 – New Moon solar eclipse in 20° Cancer – well, you never really know what is going to happen here, openings and closing.

Jul 22 – Sun enters Leo – you get to shine a little brighter.

Jul 26 – Mercury Retrograde 23°Leo – planet of communication, information, you all know about Mercury Rx.

Jul 27 – Full Moon Lunar eclipse 4° Aquarius – Yes, another eclipse, it’s always tricky, a light goes off and on, what changes during this time, fate/universe shifts thing around. It may take a while to see the full measure of the eclipses, they can last up to 6 months.

Jupiter goes Direct, Chiron and Mercury go Rx, still many planet in Rx phrase, slowing it all down. Adds to the slog, however it does give you time to breathe and to pace yourself, slow down, go over situations in your life. To see what was missed or overlooked before.

And… it all just keeps going on, and really, why should this month be any different.
It’s all still a mish-mash of chaos and uncertainty, might stay that way until September, so go grab your birth chart with glee and see where the action is taking place for you on a more personal level.

 

 

 

 

New Moon in Gemini, 14th June, 2018!

As I write, the moon is slowing moving towards the Sun, the balsamic phrase, you let go, a dying off, for the New Moon in Gemini, I gotta say it’s uneasy, uncomfortable, some angst and stress is moving along with it.

Gemini, sign of ideas, thoughts, communication, learning and sharing. An air sign full of bright ideas. This New Moon not so much with the mind or clarity as there is too much other stuff going on. You may have to wait till after the Sun and Moon meet up and move apart to set your intention. Perhaps not an easy New Moon, one to sit and wait it out, feel it, go with it, do not try to force anything, it’s a time just to allow, there is a reason for it, maybe you do not know right now, but you will.

Moon squares Neptune, fogs it all up, feels like you cannot grasp hold of the idea, thought is scattered, thinking is clouded.

Mercury ruler of Gemini moves into Cancer a few hours before this New Moon, brings in feelings, moves you into your body, out of the head adds a touch more heat and emotion.
Venus, after the New Moon leaves Cancer and enters Leo, the personal planets shift and change which makes it all wobbly.

A t-square is forming between Saturn in Capricorn + Mercury in Cancer + Chiron in Aries, it’s tense, hits a sore spot or you feel extra sensitive to all that is around you. It’s a struggle, you feel pushed down or in, stay in the moment, feel it, try to observe it all, (Gemini) Chiron in Aries, you want to get going, take action, here you feel vulnerable, feel like the fire is out. Stay on track, know you have got it in you to proceed onwards.
These three are all meeting together, so something is happening however difficult it is hang in there. You have to work with Mercury’s intuitive perspective with Saturn’s rules/structure and organization and Chiron, well, wants you to use your pain or sore spot to be the fire that sets you free and keeps you moving. The intensity they bring may be the gift, if you work with it. Whats missing from the mix is Libra’s balance and logic, find a center point, a conduit to channel all of this energy. Not just a mind New Moon, its body and emotions.

Pluto quincunx(adjustment) Sun and Moon in Gemini(ideas, information, truth) energy that just don’t fit well together, another layer of intense emotions sitting just underneath the surface, anything to do with Pluto is an unraveling, what is Pluto’s role, to make you eventually feel empowered, you know like you got some, removes whatever is making you feel powerless.

Moon enters Cancer @ 5:19 pm, you may want to find yourself some comfort, let your emotions settle, but know deep inside that something is changing, shifting and turning.

As always look at YOUR birth chart to see how this is working for you or if it affects you at all.

 

 

 

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

layers_of_impossibility_by_arthurblue-d8xgdbz
Layers of Impossibility by ArthurBlue

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.

Mars Retrograde in Aquarius from June 26-August 12 and Capricorn from August 12-27.

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!

New Moon in Pisces, 17th March, 2018!

 

new moon in pisces
What’s happening with this New Moon, a conjunction to Chiron + squares Mars.

Mars enters Capricorn + Moon enters Aries on early morning, 18th.

The build up to this new moon was rough, tough and emotional, a little internal storm was building, with Mars the warrior and action planet getting ready to move, was bringing some of the rumble.
You may have found the Mars(action, anger)also square Chiron(sensitive, wound, healing) hits a sensitive or sore spot, Mars was perhaps a bit pushy or eager, which then makes you feel vulnerable or weaker, you have over done it, slow down, look at what it’s telling you. You may have been too ready to go for it and the sore spot says, stop, before you hurt yourself more.

This is a Pisces New Moon, (Pisces is the ending, you may find that you are closing up the years story, something may be winding down) it’s not about pushing, it’s flow, pushing or trying hard will only weaken you more. You may also have felt like your were being pummeled by the Mars force from those around you, like the wave’s just kept on coming and crashing down…. force is not the way. It can bring up the victim feeling or put upon feeling and you can drown in that one. So don’t go there!

So what to do? well, see how you are feeling(Pisces, water) what is it that you are doing or trying to do. Stop and find another way. Slow down and breathe. New moon, new intention, but before that, you have to let go, things die off to be reborn again.
With all of the new coming with this Moon, ask yourself some question, “what to do now”, “what is the best way forward”. There is something this week is telling you. View your actions, what are you doing and why, you may get the message through other people and their action they could indicate the way for you. Some poked and some were poked at.

Jupiter Rx in Scorpio connects with Chiron. Jupiter in Scorpio before you can get to the good stuff you have to get into the emotional stuff, face a few fears or two. Jupiter is supporting the healing, wanting to make the move easier, emotions will be deep, they will come up for sure, what message is it telling you? this also makes you vulnerable, do the Rx thing, reflect, re-do, reassess, allow a new perspective to come though, either slow down and stop a moment, or move out of the way and accept, go with the current for a bit longer. Observe and watch to see clearly.

Stay determined, with Mars entering Capricorn(he is strong here) soon after new moon, you feel the energy shift, it’s a go ahead, this is moving forward with sure footing, a keen eye, focusing on that goal no matter what it may be. But while the New Moon is around, go gently, accept, flow, move along with the current and try not to control or push your way.

Yes, it was a poking time and has been for a while, there was a lot of poking going on and on and on and on……. Be aware of what was poked at, that caused pain. You will know what to do, you may know already. Mars in Capricorn is a strong leader and acts with self-confidence and is very sure of the next move.
Moon enters Aries, soon after Mars enters Capricorn, you feel more like your warrior self, you’ve bandaged up the wounds of last week.

 

New Moon in Sagittarius, 18th Dec, 2017!

new moon in sag

 

NEW MOON in SAGITTARIUS!
Standing at the precipice of change.

Here you are at the last new moon of the year in Sagittarius, and Saturn leads the way or is he just holding up the line. Because once he enters Capricorn some freedom may be felt.

When you plant your seed of new intention, know where you are going, name it. It’s the direct approach that is needed.

Mercury in Rx, slowing things down and hopefully you have slowed down enough also. More information, truth, is coming, needed for the path forward.

Chiron is squaring, brings up some sore spots to heal and work on, you may be feeling it all, frustration, pain, sorrow, tired, lost and confused, completely over it, as it’s been a very difficult time. Put it all behind you and keep yourself together, leave it all at the old door, and keep walking to the future that is calling you. Uranus is in a harmonious aspect loosely and this is a gentle keep going push for the new experience, freedom and liberation that you long for. That is also Sagittarius attitude too, time for the new.
Venus is bringing her beauty, fun, sassy, love vibe, making sure that you lead with your heart, have a set of values to help you along the way.

Keep the Sag moon theme in mind, know where you are going, know where you don’t want to go. This to me is still a very Saturn time. He is still in charge and he will still be a major player for the next 2-½ years. So before you go shooting off your fiery, arrow, give it a destination to land otherwise it may spend a lot of time just flying around and getting nowhere and doing nothing, doing this has no meaning, point or purpose and you just waste a lot of time, so, not Saturn. Saturn has been working hard to give the Sag fire element a framework to work within, it has been contained somewhat, but hopefully you now know how to work and use this to your highest potential, as you get set to build.

Take some time during this new moon to reflect on the lesson that you have gone through over the last 2-3 years, find meaning, knowledge and understanding as to why and what you had to learn or to look at. Hopefully you gained some truth and you know your truth.

Enjoy the vibe of the new moon, the end is near, and the future awaits, so
face the new horizon, look towards the future, and when you get the sign to move, well…… smile, know, aim and go!

MERCURY trine URANUS + MERCURY square CHIRON + VENUS square NEPTUNE

It’s a rough ride, you’re feeling tired, everything is all over the place, there is good with the bad, and you get a dose of both and other feelings all in just one day.

Mercury/Uranus communication/insight can come but it may be a surprise. Whatever happens also brings in a sense of freedom and evolution for the soul. Lift yourself up and keep on going.
Mercury/Chiron words can hurt, the pain is poked again, feeling sensitive and vulnerable.
Venus/Neptune adds a little more sensitive/feeling to this, love may be the theme or cause for the painful feeling that is hanging about. Disillusionment about love can leave you feeling lost and confused, Neptune highlights areas where you are feeling lost or perhaps have lost your way a little.
Neptune/Venus you may feel like ignoring the pain as you just don’t want to deal with it again, don’t get lost or escape from it. Try not to go overboard with anything that can leed to a massive hangover, that can just make the pain hurt more.
Mercury Rx, some parts of the story are not wrapped up yet.
Moon’s in Virgo, get grounded, stay practical and work with the facts and reality.

SUN trine NORTH NODE!
Life gets on top of you, it’s not much fun, you are trying to understand the meaning and purpose, work it all out, and it can be, one great big s*#t fight. Take this moment to look at this, allow yourself something good, have something to look forward too, get back in touch with you, have faith and trust this will change.
*Moon’s in Leo, (feelings what you need), adds more of this fun, creative, play theme.
*Mars is ready to leave Libra, and dive into Scorpio tomorrow, this does add a touch of frustration and angst to this mix. He is ready for the go moment, no more holding back for him.
