Nodes change signs, better self care will get you there!

Breaking down the barriers, the only way through is with kindness…..feeling every little heartfelt moment at a time.

I have the Cancer/ Capricorn Nodes in my birth chart, and I have to say, when I first learnt about the Nodes, the key to work through some karma, the place to head towards I was excited, until I realised I would have to discover and enter the world of my feelings, emotions, being vulnerable and then I just got scared, what is this place?, I asked myself. Then of course I felt them ALL!

Over time of course it gets easier, I did feel more comfortable with them, I did settle into them, I still long for the good old days when I was too busy to feel, it’s always going to feel better to me if  I don’t have to feel/care and don’t have to connect, let something in. Because if you stop for long enough, let all of the feelings in, it kinda creates a mashup of madness, hysteria, love and joy, it’s one big melting pot.

Nodes of fate, destiny and karma, enter into cardinal signs of Cancer (North) and Capricorn (south), the Nodes are re-directors. With them changing into Cancer/Capricorn you’re headed for the Cancer nodal axis to help you on the path.
Feeling! yes, feelings are going to be a major player in this one, you gotta feel them, follow the path that feels right, follow your heart. It’s less about the “shoulds”, doing or being task or goal oriented, this is still part of it, of course but now your compass is attached to the feeling zone to direct you. This may make you uncomfortable particularly if you hate doing that job, or if you just cannot stand that thing or person, if you’re just not “feeling it” anymore this is where you are going to get really uncomfortable and tired.

Sometimes you can forget who you are! with all the working, achieving and doing that you do. Helps you to focus on the external world, and to disconnect from self.
The way forward is through the inner world of self, feeling, getting back in touch with you. This is where the true security lies, being emotionally self-reliant, to be able to bend and flow, with whatever life brings your way.

So when your asked how are you feeling, now is a good time to know.

You’re leaving behind a place you know well, the South Node (Capricorn) it’s the physical, material, financial realms, the work you do, task orientated, the goals you set for yourself, the rules, being the authority, structures and guidelines, patriarchy, the old ways of doing, being detached, cold and aloof. These are all still important, however it’s now time to put a little feeling, love, kindness and care into all that you do…..you can loosen up.

South Nodes deal with karma…..that word! Past karma, past lives, the yesterdays of your life. What you need to sort out this life. This is also familiar territory, you know well, very easy to stay with what you know.
The North Node is the future, possibility of making changes. Not so familiar path that’s uncomfortable to you, especially for the work alcoholic, the doer, likes the rules or lives a rigid structured life, in Cancer/Capricorn, which is what you will be working with here.

North Node is what you gotta do, to master the South, to sort this out. And like I said earlier it’s about feelings, self-care, having a rest, relaxing a little or even a lot.

So, if you’re tired, take a rest.
Stop with the “shoulds”
Take the time to nurture yourself.
If you’re going to fast, slow it down, stop and smell the flowers along the way.
Sit with your feelings.
Ask yourself, how safe, secure, supported and protected do you feel.

The Nodes it’s a 18 year cycle. The last times we had the Nodes in Cancer-Capricorn

25th October, 2018 @2:45 am @ 1° Taurus

Full Moon in Taurus, fixed earth, conjunct Uranus Rx, you may feel unsettled, unstable, edgy or nervous. Feeling or needs around staying stable/secure are going to be influenced by Uranus, which is every thing but that. Uranus is change, it usually is a shock, surprise, sudden or unexpected, which way that goes you don’t know. It may be exciting and liberating or not. Good news is Saturn is in the mix as the stabilizing influence, Saturn will hold some of the ground beneath your feet.

Taurus the bull likes it all be calm, chilled, relaxed, feeling good, satisfied, loves all of the good things that life can provide. Taurus, material, physical world, very earthy and grounded, rules areas of money, worth, resources, possession these are some of the things that may be shaken up and given new life to.

Being a full moon, a result, release or culmination will be illuminated, something that needs to be let go of or brought to the surface, for some it may be that you push through a blockage or a challenge.

Both Uranus and Venus are Rx, so it’s something that you have touched/working on before or you still are. Uranus may bring change, disruption or surprise, may not really be that much of a surprise, you never know.

Sun and Moon square Nodes of Fate moving away(south node in Aquarius) from a place of being on the edges, not shining, being aloof, detached or shock/trauma and stepping into a place of pride, connection and being centered (Leo, North Node) go with what feels right, that feels and looks more like you.

Saturn in Capricorn trine Moon/Uranus brings the stabilizing/grounding influence which is happy news because Uranus can shake it up. With focus, patience and following whatever the news or new is that Saturn/Uranus are working with. This is change, breaking free. Saturn and Uranus are both working together. Breakthroughs that can bring long-lasting result. But you may be having a whole bag of mixed feelings in regards to this.

It may not be an easy Full Moon, you may find yourself at a crossroads, past and future, which way to go? look at what emotions you’re feeling, stay grounded, focused, be disciplined and work with what is happening, this may not be the complete story as Rx planets are wrapped in this moon, they will show up again. However this is a pivotal point in the story, since April/May and Sept, you know the road your on, this may just be another twist and turn to the place your headed. So like the bull, try to keep it simple.

Like always how this will impact you depends on your personal birth chart and like always go check yours out.

 

New Moon in Libra, 9th Oct, 2018…..to balance it out!

*quincunx Neptune
*square Pluto

It’s been a long, rough road, take a breath and pause from everything that’s happening internally and especially from the external world around you.
The Libra New Moon comes along to help you get back to your center self. Like most people, you have probably gone so far from this place of balance or equilibrium, it just seem like a distant shore or a memory.

Venus Rx in Scorpio is in the underworld, letting go, to be reborn as the morning star, and so are you. This is the time to recharge, and address ALL that you have gone through, to get back to that  place within you that know’s what it wants or whats lacking. Without taking time out for you, to address all of your relationship, with people, situations or even things that you value, you may not be able to move forward with or into your hearts desire.

It’s a Libra new moon, you want to get back to center, to find that place within you that’s calm and in charge, so that whatever is happening in the external world you can approach it and make choices, decision and not be reactive or acting on impulse.

Venus rules Libra, Venus themes – love, money, relationship and values are playing a part of the New Moon. You may be addressing the want or desires around these themes. Important to find the center first so you can make really good choices around your hearts desire.

This New Moon squares Pluto, brings in some intensity and fear around transformation or change. Pluto makes way for the new to enter, but before this can happen the old must go, this may be or feel like a loss or something is going. You may feel like everything has dried up, gone or withering away. There is the natural order or the natural way, this is Libra getting it all back to equilibrium.

A quincunx to Neptune, makes it feel a little slippery, adjustment may need to be made around any fears you have in regards to getting what you want. Just hold on, find the center, and wait it out when this mood or feeling comes over you. Let the Neptune part dissolve any barriers or fears you have about the changes you are making.

Find the time to rest, to find some peace.

Full Moon in Pisces, 26th August 2018! Let your dreams fall to earth!

Kites-of-Fate-1024x1024

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

Full Moon in Libra, 31st March, 2018!

  • Moon in Libra, opposite Sun/Mercury in Aries
  • Moon/Sun squares Saturn/Mars in Capricorn
  • Venus enters Taurus
  • Moon trine South Node in Aquarius
  • Sun trine North Node in Leo

Life can be so frustrating, annoying, messy and a struggle, finding your way along, trying to find some peace from the outside world in which you live and interact. People poke and situations are all around you and you have to participate in it all, whether you want to or not, but how you want to do that is all up to you, under this Libra Full Moon you have the chance to think about this.

Libra finding some balance or finding your centre, getting back to a middle space or ground, you are getting a little help from Saturn and Mars with this Full Moon,even if it doesn’t feel like it. Saturn blocks or limits and Mars is the action, taking or even thinking of taking. It’s holding you back from going to far ahead or rushing ahead, it’s the slow, steady approach that is going to work best. And, it will bring about some annoyance or frustration for sure.

This Moon is calling for balance, for you to make a decision, about how you are going to proceed forward. It’s talking about the biggies in your life. Libra is ruled by Venus, love, money, values, self-respect and relationship, the other people, this is the theme that will be playing out and something will be illuminated for you to see, it’s showing you something about you, others may be showing or projecting onto you what is inside of you. Saturn is involved, a little testing could be part of this Moon, if you do feel tested, have to face something that the Moon brings up, that something needs to be worked on or looked at, as it’s part of the area of life that needs addressing or getting clarity on.

Sun in Aries, that’s the me, part, identity, individuality, your passion, goals, confidence and courage to be who you are really are, what you are here to do, be. You do need to pull back at times to see yourself clearly, to take you back to the centre of your being, get centred and push-off from that point.

Saturn is excellent at putting on the breaks for you to slow down, Saturn is also excellent at putting roadblocks in your way to make you slow down and even stop if you are getting lost, out of line or just being to eager to run forward. Take whatever is slowing you down as a blessing at this point.

Venus who rules this Moon did meet up with Uranus, new, exciting, in the Venus themes, it may have sparked you up, rattled you for more to come. But now you feel frustrated because you tried to get out of the comfort zone, or (thought that you should get out) which is a good thing and you will, but not quite yet. Or not in the way you thought you should. Saturn says.

Sun conjunct Mercury Rx you have a few things to go over again in your head, about Aries/Mars things, keep it real about who you are and what you want. Re-access – process, before moving forward.

There again it’s going slow and finding your centre spot, breathe into this and find some stillness and peace, stick with the truth of where you are going and who you really are in regards to others and you. It’s time to get real about this.

Sun/Moon trine, North and South Node, past and future, moving from past to future requires you do the work, except the limits or blockages that are in front of you, and pay attention to what you are seeing, hearing and feeling.

Venus does enter Taurus before this Full Moon…..Phew! she says to getting out of Aries and into her home sign of Taurus, she does rule Libra too, Venus themes are strong. Here again it’s the steady and slow approach, she’s building, steady, secure and stability are key to future growth in areas of love, money, self-worth.

At the end of the day it’s all about how YOU feel about yourself, you are given the opportunity to look and see how that is going. It’s hard, frustrating and difficult and you will be pissed off, there is no doubt about that.

Saturn says “Hang in there don’t give yourself to much of a hard time, just go slow and steady and do the bloody work”

 

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.

 

Full Moon in Virgo – 2nd March, 2018!

sad

The full moon in Virgo opposite the Sun in Pisces conjunct Neptune. You find the Moon will illuminate through Virgo’s practical, simple, discerning ways, will bring in the realm of reality, so the Pisces dream/vision, illusion/delusion, clarity/fog may find it gets a reality bite.

You may realize that the dream or illusion you have been in meets up with the truth or reality comes home. What you have to do now is be logical, practical and honest with yourself to keep you going forward with that dream or vision.

Be discerning, sort out what’s really worth keeping or working with and what really needs to go. Virgo brings that dream down to earth and want’s to make it practical, useful and workable, in many ways this is humbling and it touches the heart when you can look at yourself and know the truth about your situation, here is the opportunity to be true and honest, so you can be of service to the world, in ways that allow you to grow, nurture.

This Moon may bust a bubble but that’s OK, let it pop, know that all is not lost, this is a workable energy, just stay grounded, don’t get overly emotional , (I know it’s difficult with this much water in the chart ). Know you can do it by taking a realistic look at what you want and what you are doing and how you are going about doing it.

Take the shine of it and see it all in the light of day, in your day-to-day reality, plus, what  are you really able to do? You will see that it’s still perfect just in different ways, you will find that the process and growth will be so much more rich once you come back to earth and look at it with a clear or new perspective from the place of who you really are, not what you think you are or imagine to be.

Venus and then Mercury (this Full Moon ruler) bump it up with Jupiter, more, to expand, luck, joy and abundance are in a trine aspect, there is more growth and things to come. Whatever it is you are letting go of now may not really be let go of completely, you can blend it all into new ways and into your new being. Mercury and Jupiter, optimistic, thoughts or thinking.

With this Full Moon be honest, real and truthful with yourself. Don’t live in the la la land or the woo woo as it won’t take you anywhere.

Keep it sweet and simple, find the beauty in the everyday things, nurture, love and embrace this quality. The growth, abundance and rewards will come in the sweet little ways.
Tender gently to the seeds and weeds as there is always more to come.
