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!

Full Moon in Scorpio: Darkness pulls you out!

scorpio-Giovanni-Auriemma.
Art by Giovanni Auriemma

Full moon is square to north and south nodes + sextile to Saturn.

The layers that you have build around you, disintegrate, the past that you were buried under slowing falls away under the shadow and light of this full moon.

The energy is high, emotions are intense, the square puts you in a crisis mode, you want to stay in the stable, secure place, that your kinda comfy in. But the old is worn out and stale/stagnate, it no longer brings passion. To leave the old behind is scary, to face the new is unknown, this makes you feel uncomfortable and unsure. Brings in the fear.

Deep inside you want passion, connection, your spirit to feel challenged and alive. you want an authentic feeling, presence and essence to shine from you. To hang on is hard, to not let go is way harder. Bring peace to your heart, seek inside for the answers.

Allow what your deep emotions are telling you to do, it’s time to cross over. To let the shadows, the pain dissolve and come into the light.

Saturn/moon meet up with a harmonious sextile to help you to cross, a gentle nudge, push for your success. This does help with some nourishment, nature, comfort and security. They will also help crystallize the changes from the past that you are making. You have a good chance of success, a positive change.

Go steady, be determined, be sure. Trust the process, feel empowered and follow your heart to transformation and healing.

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 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.

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!

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.
