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.

 

 

 

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!

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?

 

NEW MOON + ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS, REVAMPING THE OLD INTO NEW. 16th Feb, 2018!

NEW MOON + ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS!
Conjunct Mercury, sextile Uranus, square Jupiter.

A new moon, conjunct south node is looking back at the past in order to move into the future, but look at it from a new perspective. Perhaps take something of the old with you, but do it differently this time round?
Keep in mind that the nodes of fate/destiny bring in the universe’s way of getting life back on track. Some of this is always out of your control.

You may feel like you are working out what is the new? but so much of the past (people, beliefs, attitude, life in general) is still happening, view the past, what have you learned from all of it, know that you are different, are more than capable of turning all of the old ways of doing and being into a new way of doing and being. It’s may be a cross over feeling.

Mercury is involved so a lot of talking, thinking, ideas, insight, information, correspondence, news will play its part. Watch out for Jupiter’s optimistic ways and beliefs, “that it will all be alright”, as it may all be too good to be true and be overly exaggerated. You need to get the full story or picture before rushing in with a big Yes!

Uranus rules Aquarius, it brings in the zing, it’s in an easy aspect so not too much of zing or unexpected should happen, Jupiter’s influence is the one to watch out for, don’t sign up for too much, go with what you can handle.

New Moon’s are the new path ahead, being in Aquarius, it’s trying the new way, be open to change, change it up a little, be innovative. Aquarius/Uranus likes to do it their own way, not to happy playing by the rules, which means it may not be a smooth ride.

Mars and Neptune are lurking in the background building up on the 17th, action is faced with some uncertainty, confusion, delusion, denial even. It’s often the little undercurrents that mess you up.

Venus and Saturn are also lurking in the background building up a few hours after eclipse, get grounded into your heart or what you know to be true. Just in case it’s a bit rocky. Steady, slow is the best way.

Prepare for the new (might still be a bit of old in the new) don’t rush in, feel your way first. A few more bits need to come in.

SUN enters AQUARIUS! Future waves!

SUN in AQUARIOUS

SUN enters AQUARIUS uP in the air we go.
Leaving behind Capricorn rules and stable earthy energy. Sun lightens up in Aquarius, a freshness enters your mind and heart. It may feel a little unsteady and unknown, but that may be actually what you need.
Think about the future path/plan.
There is always a little bit of a weird kink in Aquarius ways, if you find yourself acting out of character or thinking out of the box, feeling like a rebel this could be why, you have found or want some freedom, to be different or just being yourself? Either way, go for it and express yourself, let your individuality shine out.
Reconnect with your true essence, connect with the world, be original, listen to your own mind, dance to your own tune, with the Sun in Aquarius, this is the only way to go.
