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.

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.

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

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.

 

Mars Rx in Capricorn, dig’s in to move Direct! on 27th Aug, 2018!

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.

Jupiter in Scorpio trines Neptune Rx in Pisces

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.

 

 

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.

 

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.
