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 CAPRICORN, 17th @12:16 pm (aest)
This moon conjunct VENUS, sextiles MARS, squares URANUS

New Moon in Capricorn, there is work to be done, the climb starts now in building the life you want. It’s important that you have a plan/goal, purpose for all that you are doing, as the work and hard effort will pay off in the long run. Going steadily up the mountain is the story that you are working on for the next few years, Saturn and Pluto in particular will help, support you in this journey. Be ambitious, have a goal, believe that you can succeed in your plan, don’t procrastinate, do not waste this timeAs with all Capricorn ways, be realistic, honest, logical, practical, go slow and steady, be sure.

Being close to Venus, it involves love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem, new beginnings in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows what she wants, hopefully you have worked that out too, with all of the Capricorn energy around encouraging you to make some long-term commitments for the building of the new you. If not get to it, New Moon start thinking about what it is you want for the next few years. Venus in Capricorn believes she can achieve and succeed. She likes to keep things real.

Mars lends a hand by taking action, gives you direction, emotionally motivates you to go for it.
Mars trine Chiron, healing may come about with the action or direction you take. Be caring and compassionate during this time, you may find that Venus themes will be part of the healing process for you, which may have long-term effects.

Uranus squares Moon, brings in a Sparky bold move, might be quick, unexpected ways of getting what you want to the Venus themes, adds a little bit of a surprise to the new moon vibe.

Keep in mind that the eclipses are coming, this brings in a little fate and destiny, keep an open mind, be flexiable.

Plant the seed deep into the earth sign of Capricorn, to give structure and form to your goals/plans, to give you strength and a strong foundation in the physical world.
Manifestation can happen and will happen, be committed, stay focused, keep it real, have faith in the journey.

You know when these two connect things happen, Jupiter and Pluto are meeting up today for the first of three in 2018. The good is that it’s a sextile a harmonious aspect.
This brings in a chance or opportunity for growth, to move on. Great transformation can happen, go with the flow, go with the changes that opportunity brings you. Supports you in moving on, makes it easier for you to go and get what you want.

It’s the dynamic duo at work, moves are being made in co-operative ways for success, growth and personal power. It can feel like life/people/situations are pulling you out of yourself or comfort zones to go further into areas you want and long to go. Be pulled out of your old life and ways, go willingly, don’t kick and scream. Evolving up is the name of the game, have faith, be ambitious. You’ve got that plan, gaol, let this combo help you out during 2018, as they will shine the way for you.

Keep in mind, Jupiter is in Scorpio, plowing to the depth of  some unconsciousness within and bringing it to consciousness, this may cause some chaos, intense emotions, fear even, but the good of this is for the more to come to you. You can certainly feel the challenge/struggle of the new calling you and some emotions will be raw, Pluto/Scorpio brings all of that stuff out, and when dealt with, turn it into an empowered you. That’s the gold!

Water and earth time to build, this sextile will help you along, Scorpio and Capricorn, keep it all real and authentic, that’s the only way to go.

Go check out your birth chart and see where all of this is happening for you.

SUN conjunct PLUTO!

Sun meets up with Pluto, planet of transformation, rebirth and regeneration. Sometimes with Pluto things have to be removed or die off, for true growth to happen and the Sun, your identity, purpose, vitality, will is shining the light on the areas that may need to go. And that’s not easy, never is, but after dealing with Pluto for many, many years, I have learnt that if it has to go for your soul’s growth it really does have to go. Take care and work with compassion/love when dealing with all of the issues that are coming up for you. Moon in Libra while all this is happening, find your center, be balanced, be fair and honest.
There is more to come your way and you need to make the room for this.

VENUS conjunct Pluto/Sun, relationship, money, love, self-care, values, self-esteem will be playing apart in the conjunction between the three. If it does not fit, feel right, make you feel good and true within yourself, this little planetary meet up will help you to start sorting it out. What is not true for you may be sacrificed off, so something else more in alignment with your truth can come in. Pay attention to all that is happening around you right now and as you move towards the New Moon also in Capricorn, 17th @12:16:37 pm.

Death and dying of an old way, transformation can happen, all in Capricorn, building and working on a stronger, stable, secure, more empowered you. And this goes without saying really, if you are not solid, sure within yourself, you can not build on to that ground or place, take away the rubble or foundation that is unsteady, unstable, unsure, before you start to build on solid ground. Capricorn is sure, being a master builder and is all about manifestation, so build strong, have strength within and without. Take this all very serious, Sun and Pluto are the soul calling, in the stable, secure sign of Capricorn he means to get the job done, not the time to mess around, no time for the BS. Be mature, responsible, committed, work from wisdom and truth always. You know the saying the truth will set you free.
Be your truth and be real. What’s false will fall away, and you will see, that’s the Pluto way.

Mars/Jupiter in Scorpio are in harmonies aspect to the hot 3, urging you on, motivating you with deep truth, strong emotions, for rebirth and change. Action, energy, passion and courage, new growth and abundance for more.

Mercury will join the Capricorn party, on 11th, thinking deeper about life, speaking about it, once out, it can manifest.

 

FULL MOON IN CANCER, 2nd Jan, 12:23 pm (aest)

dreamstime_m_31836267-1080x675

Finding some release, relief!
This year starts right off with a super big moon in Cancer, it’s wrapped up in a water trine, emotional and the feels, with Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Scorpio. Mars is action and energy, you may feel revved up, may want to take some action, you are driven by your emotions, Neptune will take some of the heat or edge off Mars influence, Neptune  can bring in the flow, softer, caring, compassionate and openness feel, Neptune will help to dissolve. Be sure you don’t get lost in the emotions, submerge yourself in them, be one with them for to long. Sun is linked to Neptune and Mars this is the way out of the trine otherwise you would have all the emotions without an outlet.

Sun in Capricorn, physical, structure, rules, truth and focus is the way out of the emotional realms or peaks if you do find yourself in one. With this moon you may be feeling it all. Best to ground down, be realistic in your approach and with yourself. Bring structure and form to you day or time, be disciplined.

Cancer/Capricorn axis is safety, security, comforts, internal and external, mother/father. You may be feeling some of these play out or be at the bottom of your emotions. You can see where you are wobbly, not so secure.

Venus and Pluto are on both sides of the Sun all in Capricorn, this brings in some intensity, as you may be longing for a deeper, richer, intense experience, you want to feel the strong connection on much deeper level then you have been. Your soul longs for some truth and depth.

Uranus stations goes direct on the same day as this full moon, another spark to the start of the year. Uranus has been Rx since, Aug, 2017, and gets a going. Uranus “the Great Awakener” chaos and change, excitement, freedom can start to come. New ideas and insight. Pay attention to what is happening now, it will be part of the year and eclipse energy.
Uranus can also be sudden, surprise, shock, quick energy.

Jupiter, Mars and the Nodes are lurking in the background doing more to influence you. Jupiter is moving on from meeting up with the Nodes of fate, looking at the bigger picture before you, and Mars will prompt you or encourage you to take action on that bigger idea or picture. Mars/Nodes will be exact on 3rd Jan.

Full moon the light and dark shadows, illuminations, culmination, rebirth and releases, it’s a heavy way to start the new year off, and whatever emotions bubble up to the surface for you to see, let them come out. The more that’s seen or felt the better off you will be, look at what comes out of the shadow in the moments of illumination. As that right there is your truth. And as you move through 2018 that is the only path to be on.

Moon enters Cancer @6:10:01 pm (aest)

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.

MARS enters SCORPIO, 9th Dec, 2017!

Mars in Scorpio digs deeper, wants to go deeper, wants a stronger bond, more intimacy and being real and raw is the way he likes to go, now that he’s in Scorpio, no more holding back or weighing it all up. It adds a sense of realness to life.
Power, sex, intimacy, commitments, bonding, obsessions, lust, raw emotions, passion and drive are key words here.
Best to always be aware of what is really motivating you to achieve or go after want you want.
The power of transformation is strong during Mars time in Scorpio, he’ll help you dig deep into issues that are just dying to come out and to be transformed forever.

Mars is energy, action, action you take.
He will meet up with Jupiter in January, this is big energy, Jupiter expands, magnifies he will help take a much closer look.
