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!

 

aquarius

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.

FULL MOON + ECLIPSES IN LEO! Time to change it up!31 Jan, 2018.

b56e93d77883489565be65793faa86a8--leo-html
Full moon times are a culmination, conclusion, to reset yourself. Let go of the emotional stuff that has been building up, what does not serve you anymore, and what’s not working out. Of course this one is an eclipse, it has more of an impact.

Fate – destiny, gains – loss step in and change the course, it a course correction time. What’s meant to be will be and what is not will go, when the leaving happens, you have to let go, open up and wait for the new and what yours to come in.

Eclipses play out for about 3 month or more, the whole story is yet to unfold, best to be patient, go with it. However there will be ending and beginnings, it’s usually big stuff, especially if it’s hitting some major points in your chart. Often it’s a real turning point in your life.
Go check out your chart to see!

Nothing stays the same, change happens and here you get a helping hand form the universe, which may seem very difficult and unfair at times, but you gotta have faith, trust, believe the universe is always working in your favor.

It’s in Leo, have HEART, be brave and most of all *SHINE* for the individual that you are.
Yeah, baby!

Mars trine Neptune, 28th Dec, 2017!

20171227_190006

MARS in Scorpio trine NEPTUNE in Pisces, Action planet Mars meets up with the dreamy/flow planet Neptune, it feels easy to go and flow, take the action or step to move forward, particularly if you have faith and a belief involved. Neptune will encourage you to go deeper in the depths of Scorpio. Submerge yourself into……well something.
Hopefully it’s the healthy higher path, as you can become obsessive, additive with the Neptune in Pisces influence, and Mars he’s always up for an adventure.
Both in water, emotions, feelings, instincts and sensitivity will be apart of the journey.

SUN enters Capricorn, Saturn leads the way!

 

capricorn

 

SUN enters Capricorn, this year is a special time as the Sun enters Capricorn it meets up with Saturn in Capricorn and its been 29 years since Saturn has been in the sign that it rules. Saturn is finally home after being away for a long, long, time.

You are beginning another long cycle make this one count. You are building your life.
Sun enters Capricorn, if possible take some time out to reflect/contemplate on the year, or the last 3 years, look at where you are now, how much has changed, how much have you changed?

Did you achieve all that you set out to do? or did your goals and plans not become reality. Where did you Succeed and fail, take some time before you enter into 2018 to reflect and pause, to honestly look at where you are now.
What is real and true for you.

Work at structuring your goals, work at them, release some if they need to go. Look at the year gone by to see what is different. That is the starting point, not the dreams of last year, I am pretty sure many things have changed and so have you. Some things you may have wanted to change and lets face it, they really needed to  and others were out of your hands and control.

In Capricorn you may feel more serious, sober, conservative, cautious, responsible and ambitious, you will work better with more structure, organization and discipline, you also can feel less emotional or would prefer not do deal with to many emotions, let’s stick to the facts, keep to the rules and follow the instructions and plans, as you have things to do.

Be persistent, practical. Excellent time for making plans and goals, more chance they will manifest and crystallize.

Capricorn is a driven sign, they will work hard and preserver in getting what they want. Once the mind is set there is no turning back.
It’s about planning, doing, having structure, keeping your eye on the long term goals, being wiser, smarter, determined, ambitious and very persistent.

The goat’s ambition will push you through, keep climbing towards the top of the mountain.

Astro Aspects, 19th, Dec 2017!

Well like always, many things going on in the skies. Of course the big one is Saturn leaves Sagittarius 20th, (lets hear a bloody big cheer for that!!!) especially Saggies, Gemini, Pisces and Virgo will be pleased as you probably have had enough and enters Capricorn, less friction as Saturn is back in the sign he rules. Like always, look at your birth chart to see where Capricorn is in your chart and how you can work with Saturn.

Mercury goes Direct on the 23rd. This will roll the energy along a little faster. Bringing things, situations forward.

Sun also enters Capricorn 22nd (solstice) meets up with Saturn, just a few hours later. Take some time to slow down, to contemplate, reflect on the path ahead. Think about how you are going to build a new life.

SUN trine NORTH NODE!
Life gets on top of you, it’s not much fun, you are trying to understand the meaning and purpose, work it all out, and it can be, one great big s*#t fight. Take this moment to look at this, allow yourself something good, have something to look forward too, get back in touch with you, have faith and trust this will change.
*Moon’s in Leo, (feelings what you need), adds more of this fun, creative, play theme.
*Mars is ready to leave Libra, and dive into Scorpio tomorrow, this does add a touch of frustration and angst to this mix. He is ready for the go moment, no more holding back for him.

Mercurys 2nd meet up with Saturn(28th Nov, 1st) Astro aspects, Mercury conjunct Saturn, 28 Nov, 2017! there’s more to talk about or more information to come in. Stay steady, be patient, things may not end so fast or commitments may not come together quickly. A process is happening. Saturn generally blocks/stops or limits, plus gives you a reality check but Mars influence is keeping the movement going.
Mars in Libra brings in the energy, drive forward or to keep going with the plans, co-operate is the best way to go. Don’t let things stagnate or stall, stay with it.
This is all about going forward, also a process is unfolding and happening here. Communication is key to all of this, bit by bit the story will be told and will unfold, but there is more to come still.
So keep going, and remember “you got this”

 

Full Moon in Gemini, 4th Dec, 2017!

Well, there’s a lot going on with this full moon, as I am sure you all know and feel. It’s all a big muddle really, inside and out. But finding your way is a must. Many choices and decisions are going to be made and need to be made, the time now is to work out what all that is about, what do you want and what will you choice? for the next part of your journey, you have been working hard clearing out all year long, here you are at a pivotal point and very close to the end, so whatever is happening now is part of the story of old and new. Over the next few weeks you get the chance to review the story and then go forward after having had time to reflect.

This is the end of a major journey right now, until you reach the end of December and enter January, where you begin again. Best to end on a high note, so when next year comes you are at a place of truth within you, now is the time to be true, honest, clear, and I gotta say with less baggage(very important, you gotta leave that in 2017) fearless, vulnerable, plus have faith particularity in yourself.

This is all about communication, Mercury rules Gemini. Gemini/Sagittarius axis is about information/learning and knowledge/wisdom/experience. Light is shining on the mind, thoughts, ideas, what you need to know, what you know. Pay attention to words, either written or spoken. You’re seeking the truth here with Sun in Sagittarius.

With Saturn involved and he’s a big player, getting ready to leave Sag and enter Capricorn, on the 19-20th of Dec, he has been giving us lesson, upon lesson, deleting and working us through our stuff and karma, to restructure us into our truth, for you to be honest, work with integrity, to grow up, be responsible and own your stuff. You know what you have had to do, let’s hope you have done it. Saturn does reward for the job/work done. And when he moves into Capricorn you will see where you are at on the karmic scale, rewards or none?

So, it’s very important with all of the information/communication that will be floating around to be honest and true in all that you do.
Neptune can spin both ways here, can bring in the confusion, uncertainty, illusion, are you kidding yourself? you may not know what is true and what is not, listening, speaking with clarity, honesty and an openness is the best approach, and ask question if your are not sure. Neptune will help dissolve any barriers, so you can do this with faith and trust in the process.

Adjustments may be made, being flexible, and stay grounded, have a daily practical routine for the next few weeks to get yourself steady and most of all…… slow down, Mercury is Rx remember, you are being asked to go over, reflect and review.

 

Jupiter Trine Neptune, 3rd Dec, 2017!

Where there is desire there is gonna be a flame. by SianEatsCookies

Jupiter trine Neptune, 3rd Dec,2017!
This is the first of three, the other dates are(May 25th, 2018 and 19th Aug, 2018)

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, as 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 are headed.
Do keep this in mind, is it right for you, time will tell, if all keeps going well, your 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, as these two 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.
