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.

 

Mars Rx in Capricorn, dig’s in to move Direct! on 27th Aug, 2018!

Mars the planet of action has been Rx since 26th of June.
On the 27th this planet of action is going Direct, being in Capricorn a more serious, goal and focused sign he can take you forward, this time you find that the goal or future plans that you tried to take, have a better chance of happening, as the earth sign is about manifestation.
With his entering back into the sign of the Goat, he needed to get a better grip or secure footing for the road or purpose ahead.

 

Mars – planet of action, passion and desire.
Rules Aries – is cardinal fire.
“I am”
Help you to get what you want through action, being in Capricorn, you gotta work to get it.
Mars is strong in Capricorn.

Jupiter trine Neptune, 20th, August, 2018!

The last trine (Dec 2017, May 25th & 20th Aug, 2018) between Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces.

A situation in your life is wrapping up, another easy flow or maybe a no fuss way to move it along. During this time you may have been given an opportunity to go deep down into your emotions or fears with whatever this pair brought up for you. Jupiter (expansion) and Neptune (spiritual) both have a transcendent/dissolving feel or way about them, this was part of the journey, whether big or small in many ways it was scary with what was happening, it may have felt out of your control and out of control and it probably was or is. In some way a path of least resistance was guiding you or making it easy for you.
Dealing with Jupiter, Neptune, Scorpio and Pisces there is always edginess to whatever they bring, even with Jupiter’s optimism/hope, Neptune’s faith in the cosmos has your back approach, to me there is always moment of fear/panic as you really do have to have FAITH, TRUST that whatever is being shown to you is for your highest good, and “you got this” you have to let go, unclasp your hands and hope to hell that something or someone eventually grabs you again and you feel safe.
There is of course a deeper, more meaningful aspect going on here for you, look beyond the surface and go deep, that’s the gold that Jupiter in Scorpio is taking you to.
Below is the original post from Dec, and May.

Jupiter likes to expand, Neptune dissolves the barriers or limits, a combo of these two especially in a trine, you just want to float along, get lost, submerge yourself into something lovely. You want to just let go, it’s a blissful feeling you want to sink into.

It can be a time of hope, optimism, faith and a spiritual journey. It may also be for some of you the push ahead you need, to move along as you feel more inspired, grateful, creative. Pay attention to your dreams or imagination, intuition may be higher and more finely attuned.

You may find what starts for you now is a journey you go on and you may just slide right into it, you want to go beyond the place you are. This can be anything depending on what is happening in your personal birth chart, or your goals and where you’re headed.
Do keep this in mind, is it right for you, time will tell? if all keeps going well, you feel good, you grow, if it’s not right for you, you will eventually hit the bottom, the blissful feeling goes. You may have been dealing with illusion, addictions,  (Jupiter and Neptune both in water signs) can throw that into the mix, you generally just want to feel better or something other than what you have been feeling.
And trines make things easy for you.

 

New Moon Eclipse in LEO, 11 Aug, 2018! Confidence, strength and You!

Sun/Moon conjunct Mercury Rx.
Mercury square Jupiter.
A finger of God – Mercury(point) – Neptune/Pluto 

Phew! that’s been a wild ride!

Eclipses come in groups, every 6 months, eclipses happen in the same signs for roughly 2 years. The first eclipse in Leo happened in February 2017, the last will be January 2019. So you will be wrapping up this Leo themed season of eclipse then, what has the Lion been showing you?

As you know Eclipses shake or shape the path you are on, to me the eclipse are the universe way of shaking, stepping in or stepping you up to get you back on track or on purpose. It’s a helping hand when you are losing your way, of course it’s not easy, as it’s sometimes a bit of a surprise.

It’s in the theme of Leo, this is where all of the action or path forward is in.

Leo – attraction, attention, purpose or passion, pride or proud. It’s a time to step into leadership in your life, to look forward with a strength, courage and heart of Lion King. The Leo eclipses over the last year or so, is showing, asking you to be brave, to find that confidence within to conquer your fears and to come out from behind the shadow of the old self that has lacked the confidence to shine, to be who you really are and to show off the gifts that lay within you. The light is shining here.

Sun and Moon conjunct Mercury Rx, illuminating some information, communication, thoughts or thinking about what Mercury is going back over in some area of life. It’s still all up in the air and the information may still be not ready to settle. Still some uncertainty perhaps. Lots of thinking and going over going on here. Mercury is the point in the Yod, talking to God.

The Yod (finger of God) – between Mercury, Pluto and Neptune, a higher purpose, path or way is involved here. Pluto (power and transformation), Neptune, the mystic, dream, a pull towards a dream, may help you to get what you want. Mercury is the point, talking to God, with the adjustment to make it happen.

Mercury square Jupiter, your might have big plans or thoughts that you want to take far, (or something is or was taken to far) you want to broaden your horizons. Jupiter can be expansive energy, likes to exaggerate. Try not to be too over the top. This is where you have to not let the Leo ego or false confidence take over, a higher purpose is at play here. **Jupiter trines Neptune 19th, the plans or ideas that you want, if in alignment with your higher plan or purpose you will be able to take this further.** 

Eclipses, set the way, correct the course, an element of trust, faith, and letting go and handing over plays a very big part. Best approach is to go with it. You will see what the end result is in 2019 when the Leo season of eclipses are over.

Like always look at your own birth chart to see where all of this is happening.

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.

 

 

 

 

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.

June 2018!

June 2018!

June starts off emotional, coming off a full moon in Sagittarius, it feels like the push-off from the side, allowing your emotions to drift you out, it’s uncomfortable, feels unstable. It will take a whole lot of faith and trust not only in yourself and your skills, talents and gifts, in others and the cosmos too.

Venus + Jupiter + Neptune Grand Trine – June 1st & 2nd
Sun conjunct Mercury – 6th
Mercury enters Cancer – 13th
New moon in Gemini – 14th
Venus enters Leo – 14th
Neptune Rx – 19th
Sun enters Cancer + Solstice – 21st
Mars Rx – 27th
Full moon in Capricorn – 28th
Mercury enters Leo – 29th

Another month of twist and turns and roundabouts.
Neptune and Mars both go Rx, adds to the other planets also Rx, Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter. You get a pull back and slow or slowing down feeling. Which may not be so bad as you gotta catch up with yourself and check in with all that has been happening.

Of course the Sun changes signs and enters Cancer + Solstice time, new moon and full moon to set intentions and brings culmination and release.

Mercury the planet of communication and information is moving quickly through the signs, life happens quickly.
Mercury enters Leo by months end, it’s about true self-expression, Mercury goes Rx in July and Eclipses are coming. Best to take the time at the end of month for some reflection and tuning in, tapping into the internal and external changes that have taken place.

Ending, beginnings and all of the damn things in between.

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.
