Being a new moon it’s the start of something new, plus you’re coming out of eclipses. Where are you now? what shifts and changes have finely fallen into place, since May.

In Virgo you want to clear out, tidy up and stick with working at the details/facts, this is for improvement, upgrade, to make something better.
Since Pluto is involved it may come with some intensity or deep focus.
Jupiter wants to expand or you may find that you’re looking through a magnifying glass to get to the details, you want to see clearly or perhaps you just want it to be as near perfect as you can get.

Pluto and Jupiter are supporting this New Moon for transformation and growth, so….
You want to start out right.
Don’t take shortcuts.

Neptune can make it all a little fuzzy or blurred, you may find that you lose the thread or focus, you just can’t seem to get it right or it doesn’t feel quite right, so take the time. But stay the course, especially if it’s something that is really worth your while.

Neptune can often mean an ending or releasing of something, allow the Virgo energy to help you sort out what this is, Virgo is asking for you to improve your life. Take the time to contemplate what that is. It’s sifting and sorting now that leads you further down the path to a better place. But, it’s best done in Virgo’s way, the details and work.

It’s a New Moon in Virgo, have patience, be discerning with what you are doing. Tend to and take the care that is needed.

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.

 

New Moon Eclipse in LEO, 11 Aug, 2018! Confidence, strength and You!

Sun/Moon conjunct Mercury Rx.

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.

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.

 

 

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?

 

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”
