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!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Astro Aspects 10th Dec, 2017!

Capture
Leila, 1892 Frank Bernard Dicksee

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.

Astro Aspects, 8th Dec, 2017!

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.

LA LA LAND

Make no mistake about this singing and dancing, glitzy, bright and colourful flick. It is about love, passion, dreams lost, dreams found, and regret. And no matter how we may wish to rewind and just do it all a little differently, there is no going back.

La La Land is well balanced between being a musical and telling the story, perhaps that is how a musical that appeals to all audiences gets to be a Best Picture nomination. The story has been told a million times before, but this fresh approach, with intelligence, and perception, makes it unique. Well unique to me perhaps, I’m not a great fan of musicals, so probably not in a position to judge. Sebastian (played by Ryan Gosling) provides knowledge about jazz, and conversations with others presents the argument about traditionalist and innovation. These conversations don’t seem odd or out of place, they allow us…

Sun – Neptune, from out of nowhere!

As I sit, think what to write about, so many things I could write about, but what’s really on my mind is  Neptune, God of the sea, you know it’s big, vast, deep, the bottom takes a lot to get too. Whenever I do an astrology reading I always use the deep blue sea to describe how a planet may work in Neptune or the 12th house. Imagine the Sun in the middle of the ocean, how would the Sun shine then, not so shinny or  sparkly, take more work, may even come out distorted. 

Sun conjunct Neptune Exact today, sun shines the light onto the hidden, so you can see. Shines the light onto the dream, brings things or situation into reality. of course there has been a build up here to this exact point. Lots of Pisces energy, the end. letting go.

 

sun and sea

 

I struggle with Neptune the parts unseen, it makes me uncomfortable, I am realist, have Mars, Venus, South node, Mercury all in Capricorn, ruled by Saturn in my birth chart, and I am a Sagittarius Sun and Moon girl, so please no bullshit here, I am rather grounded and practical, however I love the dream and the magic, musical, mystical side of Pisces, I love the higher aspect of the Neptune/Pisces realms, I believe in a higher source, an intelligent mind, God/Goddess above, Gaia, I believe that there is more than this earth bound, physical, realm I live in. I like to believe in the synchronicity, serendipity, the sign from above.   

Over the last couple of months, well, years, really (Saturn in Scorpio, still shaky after that transit) there has been an unraveling of soul, to dissolve old patterns/cycle, fears, hidden or known, the dissolve needs to happen. So you can see the parts hidden to or from you, thanks to Saturn (reality), pulling/ripping away at the layers, unwrapping you till you become clear and clean (Virgo north node, future), with each new and full moon, things have been shown to you, if you have been paying close enough attention to what your inner self is trying to tell you, you have to stay on track, soul’s intention, no matter how difficult it is by what’s been thrown at you.

The internal compass, your heart’s intent is your guide.

Saturn in Sagittarius have a goal, aim for it, have a long term vision for yourself, very important, this will give you direction and focus, somewhere to head for other wise you can get lost or lead astray. If you do have a plan/vision/goal for yourself, your life, to get there you have to make sure that you are driven, committed to that plan, as you will be tested to stray from this goal as the ego can and will take over, particularly when things get difficult, you may want to throw in the towel. It all can be too hard. Saturn in Sag is also reality check time. Look at your beliefs it may be time for a new set, be truthful, the truth, real, honest, about yourself and your life, with the North node in Virgo and Saturn in Sag it is about doing the weeding, stripping the garden back, cleaning, purifying. This is also where the Saturn square Neptune comes in helping you bring the dream into reality but first let’s get the foundation, structure, solid, stable and pure. No good having a base that will be blown away when a good strong wind comes along, namely events and other people’s choices. All things align for you to make adjustments, know you’re on track, or if you are way off. It’s also a nine year, endings, things have to go for you to evolve and grow.

The veils of delusion/illusion are being parted and you can see. It’s also an aspect for you to look at, I think things are popping up now for them to leave, what is real for you? As in, what do you really want to feel like and be in your life. We are all being shown, do you want this or that? You choose, and in some cases you may be forced to, you may have something pop out at you to see what is really going on, as you may have been making choices not fully aware of what they were really about. The unseen is very Pisces/Neptune energy that’s where the deception part comes from, “from out of nowhere”, is a great saying for the magic or illusion of Pisces/Neptune.

 

high priestess

 

Life is like a maze, you have to keep going to get out, and it’s tricky at every turn, you thought that was the way, no, go back, go this way, this may take you a little further and you do feel better, more relaxed and even sure, then you turn again, this is a wtf! turn and you have to make adjustments, be resourceful (strength from within) and keep going. You think you’re at the end, and out, you realize you’re not, each day is a new day and each day is going to be different and for me I am always in a constant state of change and flux, each day my emotions, mood changes, nothing is really that stable at the moment and the eclipses are coming, so till they wrap up, it may be more of the same for a while, will have to wait and see what they bring you.

The Mantra from Kaypacha Lescher is a good one for now. From his weekly Pele report.

May I know the source of what,

Appears within my mind,

And only act upon that which,

My heart and soul align. – Kaypacha Lescher

 

Taking the practical, realistic approach to living a blissful life!

Leave the past behind and head towards your true north…… Is the message of the Nodes. Dreams into reality, through the everyday experiences and expressions of Virgo earthly and heavenly touch, as the Nodes change signs, south into Pisces, north into Virgo.

North and South Nodes (karma, past lives) of the moon are points where the Moon’s orbit intersect the plane of the ecliptic ( the apparent annual path of the sun in the heavens).

nodes

North Node represents your future, gain, your future self, where you are headed, this can feel and be unfamiliar to you. You are learning, developing this part of yourself, the challenges you must work through to become whole in this lifetime. You can and will grow spiritually, this is your evolution of soul, a more fulfilling path. It can feel uncomfortable and you will often fall back onto the old ways of doing and being. Which is the south node.

South Node represents your past, past lives, these experiences and qualities come naturally to you, you know them very well and do them easily and you tend to want to stay here, habit patterns that you fall into without thinking, and instinctive behaviors. The South Node can be a point of undoing, your Achilles heel, will keep you in the same place, unless you develop and head for the North Node experiences and qualities. Consciously working on the qualities of the North Node can bring you to true happiness and fulfillment, however it can be uncomfortable, If you overemphasize and fall back on the qualities of our South Node, you may have a difficult time feeling personally satisfied and successful.

Sometimes I view this as a place to head to in a chart, the qualities of the north node can help you embrace your life, a way of releasing your past (south) habits, patterns. They are opposite on the chart, so what you are trying to do? is move your intentions, actions, being towards the north node, you all have this is in your birth chart, it’s not easy as this is unfamiliar territory. 

My north node is in Cancer (feelings), sensitive, flow, movement, slow and relaxed, comfort, nurturing, security, so, my south is in Capricorn (psychical security, detached emotions, money, work orientated) and I have to say for a good part of my life I was very Capricorn, cool, detached, aloof, work focused, to the point and some would say harsh or cold….. they we’re right. This way of being was not working for me, not in relationships, work, life. Life then tosses a few painful experiences at you, so, of course I then was faced with All of my emotions, feelings and sensitivities, Gotta say I did not like it! So, what’s a girl to do? I accepted my feelings, Yes…… Helen you have them, I was in despair (God, more like drowning) for a while and I struggled with them, it was i long process to get out of the emotional place I had got myself into.

The trick is now i know I am sensitive, have feelings, (many of them) and i now check in, on how i am feeling, and this of course has led to be more compassionate towards others feeling. When i listen and act on feeling, life is better, i do gain something rewarding in my life. And yes i still sometimes fall back into the Capricorn me as i know it so well, but now i know where i am at and what I am doing, I use my feelings, emotions and body to guide me and direct me.

aries-libra

Having been in Aries and Libra from February 2014 – November 2015.

Aries, the individual expression – Libra, balance, relationship/partnership with others, how you are in them, how do you assert yourself with others, do you lose yourself or do you push your way on to others, of course the trick here was balance, fairness, listening, harmonizing, doing what’s good for ALL, but somehow still maintaining your true essence without losing it among everyone else.

Relationships may have been interesting, to the say the very least, you may also have had a very good look at yourself and at other people and how they play. This is the axis of projection and relating, to keep things fair, some of you may have given yourself away. Yes, some of you may also have found yourself.

Now the Nodes move into PISCES (south, past), Virgo (north, future) here you have a chance for some healing and getting real again, This axis involves, dreams and reality, the dream, water, imagination, to dissolve boundaries, to float away and escape, that’s Pisces – VIRGO, practical, details, logical thinking, plans, lists, work, focus, healing, earth, cleaning, real and reality.

Capture vp

You have a chance to get real, you’ve had a good look at yourself, thanks to Saturn in Scorpio, Jupiter in Virgo, you’ve had a chance to change, grow, release, accept, move, face some fears, probably a lot of fears, here you are now getting real, coping with reality, out of the bubble, accept who you really are and what your like. Clean up time, dust yourself off, face Virgo’s North Node.

The point to work with spirit, for humanity, we are all in this together, whether you like it or not. Virgo’s role is to heal, and help, to use her earthy, practical, and logical approach to heal you first and then you can heal others through the work you do. Chiron is linked to Virgo, another healer, helping you to heal your wounds and humanity’s wound.

Have the dream, imagination of Pisces, don’t run away from the reality, you could get lost in the void or abyss, this is not the time to be doing that, get of the mountain top, look up from your belly button, get yourself awake, as now you have to take the practical, realistic approach of living a blissful life, this may require some work as Virgo is the essence of daily work, patience, goals, a plan plus logical thinking, details and hands on work.

Collectively, we are all going to be doing this, you start with yourself first, clean yourself up, get real with you, be honest, look at what area’s you can start with, what steps can you take/make for change to happen, to make it a happier and healthy life. Because the more you work on, clean up, get honest with, you then can move about the world and share this and this is part of the cleaning process for us all. Virgo is a very humbling sign as they can see the flaws in themselves (don’t be critical or picky) and that can turn into compassion and empathy not only for themselves but for all of humanity.  Not in the victim or martyr roles this no longer works, there’s no blame or shame, it’s healing work to become whole.

remembering-911-mister-rogers

Beautiful, perfect work (world) you can create, it may be a humbling experience to see what you can create, integrate it into the world.

Virgo – Pisces is also a very healing time, both of these relate to healing, wholeness and wellness. Let’s keep Pisces’s Faith as you are going to be needing a lot of that.

With the world as it is today, so much suffering, pain, loss, death, fear and hatred, it may seem like a difficult task, the nodes movement to Virgo may help to start the process of doing the work to clean up the mess we have created so far. Here’s to Virgo working her everyday magic!
