September 2018!

September2018!

Well, the eclipses are over, September is here, Phew! you start the month off with 4 planets and Chiron Rx, by the end of September you have 2 planets and Chiron Rx, this will help with some forward movement and more clarity and insight. Some of the edge, stress and high intensity vibe will go. But like always a lot is still going on.

September 6th – Saturn goes direct
September 6th – Mercury enters Virgo, Mercury speeds through Virgo, only 16 days.
September 8th – Sun opposite Neptune in Pisces
September 9th – Venus in Libra square Mars in Aquarius
September 10th – New Moon at 17°Virgo

September 9th – Venus enters Scorpio, important info because Venus will start her Rx in Scorpio on 6th Oct, moves back into Libra, go direct in Libra, and then finally move back into Scorpio. Venus retrograde about every 19 months: Venus, planet of love, attraction, money, relationship, partnership, social, beauty and values.

September 11th – Mars re-enters Aquarius!!

September 12th – Venus ( 2° Scorpio) opposite Uranus (2° Taurus). This is the first of three oppositions and is around till the beginning of December! This is because of the Rx and Direct action going on.

September 13th – Mercury opposite Neptune.

September 20th – the last Mars square Uranus. (First on May 22nd, the 2nd on August 3rd) Mars, planet of action and Uranus, planet of freedom. You should know by now what you have to get away from….. liberate yourself!

September 22nd – Mercury enters Libra
September 23rd – Sun enters Libra
September 25th – Full Moon in Aries

As you can see it’s still jammed packed with action, and as you enter October, Pluto is going Direct on the 1st.

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.

An ese and flow when Mercury meets up with Venus, communication, compromise and understanding can come. You gain some clarity, insight in a review or asking question about situations in your life.

Mercury Direct, movement forward, with a true expression of what you have learnt during the Rx period. It brings some clarity, progress in area of communication, information, plans, travel all of Mercury themes. Leo, your identity may be envolved, tap into the part that needs to shine more. Let yourself go and glow.

Last of the trines between Neptune(dissolves boundaries) and Jupiter (expansion). A push forward in an area of life, you should know by now which way you are going or a way to go, the aspects today and yesterday have given you some insight to all that is going on. The 3 trines have been a push-off to something new, they have hopefully pulled you further enough along to get you to the place of the path of least resistance and to open up.

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.

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.

 

 

 

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.

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.

New Moon in Aries, 16th April, 2018, Re-Awakened Warrior!

New Moon in Aries, 16th @11:57 am, conjunct Uranus.

Mercury Rx slowed you down, frustrated the hell out of you, now you have some new information, insight, realizations about all of that and you are ready for the new, filled with energy and enthusiasm/drive for the next step or action you take. Even though you may still be feeling vulnerable and know that a touch of courage is needed.

  • Keep in mind that Mercury squares Saturn(26th), don’t go rushing to far ahead full of enthusiasm or be too impulsive as Saturn will put the brakes on. You want to come out of the gate sure and steady, not wobbly.

Being conjunct Uranus, for the last time in Aries as Uranus enters Taurus in May. Being the last, you are wrapping up this 7-8 year journey, what surprises,  breakdowns/breakthroughs did you endure. Uranus, destabilizes situations that are not strong enough to withstand the volt it brings. Hopefully you have found some insight and truth to you(identity/Aries) and how you work in this life.
Uranus brings it’s on style and unique edge to this New Moon. What’s Uranus? independence, individuation, takes us out of the comfort zone, future plans, goal, visions, opens you up for change and trying something new. Uranus amps up the energy here, gives the Aries Moon/Sun the push to go for the new.

Aries is all about you, what action or direction do you want to take now, what areas of life do you want to start over again with, bring in a new vibe for the year ahead as Aries is the beginning of the zodiac year, it starts now.

Start of with using this high energy for a positive start for change in your life.
Set your intentions, write them out, get clear in your head about the direction or focus you want the year ahead to be. What did the Mercury Rx tell you or show you, part of the information or awakening to help you out.

But most of all how do YOU want to be in the year ahead?
