Life can be a Puzzle – Astrology Reveals Your Missing Pieces…

Good Friday, April 19, 2019 we’ll experience a Full Moon at 29 degrees of Libra 07′ at 5:13 am MDT. The Sun will be sitting opposite the Moon at 29 degrees of Aries 07′. The Illumination we’ll be faced with in this Moon phase? Ending a cycle of knowing WHO I AM, What DO I Want? & then noticing HOW TRULY DO I SHOW UP IN MY RELATIONSHIPS? What we SEE during this Full Moon will be about Me, Myself & I AND ME Within the WE – are they the same or do you hide your True Authentic Self away when you’re with Others?

cropped-gibbous2bmoon2bw2bjupiter2.jpgBoth Libra (Air element) and Aries (Fire element) are our Cardinal signs signalling a NEW CHANGE – renewed changes if you will – as we say Goodbye to aspects of the little self that have prevented MORE of our True Authentic Self/Higher Self from shining through, before now.

Remember, in Astrology, it is all about the energy of cycles. The Moon represents our Emotional Body’s cycles of feelings, intuition, receiving, looking for symbols/symbolism and meaning – the deeper truths. How we are evolving emotionally this lifetime.

The Sun represents our Soul Self – that vital part of ourselves, eternally burning and shining brightly – as we show up to take evolving creative action in this life.

The dance between the Moon and Sun (feminine/masculine, light/dark, deep/surface) brings forth key timings during the 8 phases of each Moon cycle. As the Moon and Sun sit opposite one another over the next several days, see yourself sitting Within that opposition. What are you SEEING, now, about this opposite part of you? Are you familiar with it? Are you SEEING this for the very first time? What are you noticing? What are you feeling?

5CD23A34-EA52-4A87-86F7-381D7A137FF1Libra brings balance, equilibrium, peace, harmony and the need to SEE the beauty of all things/people around you – including yourself! The Shadow side of Libra – indecision, not opening up to others, talking things through. Hiding yourself by not speaking up.

Venus (our Desire Body) rules Libra, and currently sits within our Spiritual Water sign of Pisces – sending an energy line to this Full Moon whereby we are asked to Let Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning as we continue to hold on to the last vestiges of the Drama Triangle role-play (Victim-Rescue(r)-Bully/Persecutor). How many of these roles does your Ego-self LOVE playing/projecting that get in the way of you TRULY DESIRING what you want most out of your life? As in TRULY LIVING IT? Hence this current indecision…can I possibly LET GO of the drama, and ALLOW myself to LIVE my true life?

Venus also rules our Values, Worthiness, Personal Resources we bring to the table that support our efforts to create abundance, bounty and prosperity. If we don’t value ourselves, who will? If what we DO in life is not valued, what else will we do? Spiritual VALUE is key here – do you value yourself, spiritually, or just by how much money you make, things you accumulate, status you attain? Another AND is required vs. either/or.

82510719-BBCD-45B1-99B0-51206BB54151Aries brings the need for instinctual action, without editing it with wondering/worry, indecision. Here we can tap into impatience, anger, frustration and those impulsive leaps into greater self-sabotage if we’re NOT listening to our Inner Wisdom via Intuition. Sometimes LEAPING without taking a moment to FEEL/INTUIT the decision can be an indication of an Ego-self choice vs. a true authentic Soul-Self choice.

Aries brings out our Inner Warrior to assert self (vs. aggressively so). Here we’ve been tapping into our Inner Explorer and Pioneer since New Moon April 5th – what NEW avenues of your Inner Self have you viewed, connected with? Is there a part of you that needs deeper examination? What will you LET GO OF these next several days that no longer serves your Soul Self?

Mars rules Aries and is currently taking action with our mutable Air sign of Gemini – actively gathering information and data as you interact with key Others in your life. What are you learning about yourself within these relationships/conversations? How does this information bring key AHA moments, timely informative Next Steps to take further Action upon?

The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon (from: The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle by Lynda Hill & Richard Hill, 1995) is as follows:

  • Symbol: THREE MOUNDS OF KNOWLEDGE ON A PHILOSOPHER’S HEAD
  • Keynote: “There is ability here, to read spiritual understandings into concrete objects. Several different aspects can be combined to result in a truly wise outcome. Being able to pierce through appearances to see the truth of a situation. Being able to bring abstract truths into reality. Concentration on questions of a philosophical nature. LOOK TO THE SIGNS.
  • SHADOW: analysing things too much and reliance on intellect.

IMG_6669Know your Shadow side AND your Light side – equally well – and learn to LOVE both too! No Either/Or’s here…create an AND to heal the division Within. BE YOU, and, BE YOU with Others. Lovingly, openly, truly.

Enjoy your Emotional Body AND your Mental Body too. Western society covets the mind over the heart way too much. An imbalance if you will.

This Full Moon is at 29 degrees of two Cardinal signs – meaning an END of a CYCLE – mentally and as you RELATE to yourself and Others. HOW you’ve been DOING, YOU. What are you ending? And what are you about to begin, ANEW?

Blessed BE! Namaste

Friday April 5th we began a new Moon cycle via the New Moon phase at 2:50 am MDT at 15 degrees of Aries 17′ of celestial longitude – aka the Moon and Sun came together at the same location in the sky, beginning a NEW Cycle of change, self-awareness, and emotional evolution.

Sunrise2As I write this post we are still within the New Moon phase (about to change into the Crescent Moon phase tonight at 10:43 pm MDT) and we are asked to Take Action through the Fire of Aries! This Moon cycle is in Square aspect to the Solar Eclipse/New Moon we experienced January 5th in Capricorn – both Aries and Capricorn are Cardinal signs – wanting to Initiate something NEW. Capricorn is cardinal Earth – being hands-on, tactile, with long-term goals, concentrating on Taking Care of Business – with Integrity. The Square creates inner tension/stress to create CHANGE of some sort within your life –  bringing in the ACTION portion now this Moon cycle.

The Moon cycle in Aries is a breath of fresh air after 2.5 months of our mutable water sign of PISCES’ influence within our Soul body (Sun), Emotional body (Moon), Mental Body (Mercury) and Spiritual body (Neptune) and more recently our Desire body (Venus) all traveling through our cosmic/spiritual connection, discerning what was illusion, delusion vs. reality along the way, with a few stops to ensure we noticed if we’re still playing any roles on that Drama Triangle (victim-rescue(r)-bully/persecutor). Whew!

After all that wondering/imagining/escaping/addiction/mysticism swimming we are now left with Venus (Desire) + Neptune (Spiritual) + Mercury (Mental) in Pisces – what do you Desire that connects your Inner Spirit AND your Mindful focus? And now, what do you know, via your feelings/intuition, you need to take Action on?

DSC04542The Sabian symbol for this Aries New Moon cycle is (from: The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle by Lynda Hill & Richard Hill):

  • Symbol: BROWNIES DANCING IN THE SETTING SUN
  • Keywords: “Your intuitive powers are at a real high but your physical energy may not be. Open your mind to possibilities and listen to the messages from Within. There’s invisible assistance in accomplishing one’s work. Faeries and nature spirits.”
  • Shadow aspect: “Self-delusions, not getting a true picture of what’s happening in the ‘real-world’. Losing the plot.”

Interesting…those 2.5 months swimming within our spiritual self allowed our minds (Mercury) to open up to the Unseen, Unknown, and mystical – if we allowed it to. Now we Take Action upon our intuition that ‘sees’ and ‘hears’ beyond the physical.

Did any of you notice a DECLINE in your physical energy as of Friday? I have. I’ve needed to rest, take time out to dream, then take action when my energy returned. It’s been an up and down time since Friday in my life. How about yours?

The cardinal Fire energy of ARIES brings forth the following (from: New Moon Astrology by Jan Spiller):

  • New Beginnings – like our season of Spring, what NEW energy is calling you to Action this Moon cycle? Aries rules the archetypes of Warrior, Explorer & Pioneer – what new trails are you blazing? What are you initiating, with high energy, to take action with innovative approaches?
  • Self-Focus – here we connect with the Physical body, our survival issues (Root chakra!), instincts and how we assert ourselves with Self and others. What does your Physical body NEED? Perhaps the Action is related to this. See your doctor or naturopath or acupuncturist or massage therapist – need a re-balance now?
  • Innocence/Authenticity – how Honest are you being with yourself? If you’re honest Within, your Authenticity shows itself, Without. Impulsiveness and being straightforward with yourself too – editing WHO you are and WHAT you want is NOT being Authentic!
  • Self-Discovery – here’s the Explorer in you coming out – taking risks, being eager to DO something physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually. Competition comes into play – with yourself and/or others.
  • Independence! Here we learn about and use our Self-direction + Self-reliance + Autonomy + Self-sufficiency – but not so much that you totally ignore the others in your life who’d like to help you, play with you, be with you! WHAT IS IT YOU WANT, and who do you want to bring along with you? ME Time and WE Time is okay.
  • Courage – here’s where our Warrior energy comes out, sipping from that Cup of Courage I talk about – to lead, bring strength, have vigilance and be bold!
  • Self-Absorption – here’s the Shadow side of Aries – having lack of awareness of Others in your life, selfishness, vanity, impulsive action that alienates others, your anger/impatience with Self and/or Others. There are times when the Physical body isn’t working in tandem with our Emotional and/or Mental bodies – slower, less decisive, jerky movements and here we begin to wonder, “Am I getting old or what?!” You may not be IN your Physical body – more like in your mind or feelings. There’s been some sort of Mind-Body disconnect. MOVE your Physical body while BEING mindful AND emotionally grounded, Within. Yoga and Nature and meditation all bring us into the Mind-Body-Spirit connection – as will classical and spiritual music, art, creative pursuits.
  • The Physical Body is Ruled by Aries: here we can experience acne (anger eruptions under the skin – “she gets under my skin!”), eye issues (trouble focusing, itchiness, tension), head, face, scalp and brain areas – can experience headaches and dizziness at times if we’re so busy DOING Action/activity and not spending time BEING, resting, grounding Within ourselves.

DSC00168Saturn, the South Node and Pluto have been holding hands in Capricorn these past weeks too, creating new structure/goals/responsibilities, connecting us with Unresolved Issues around the same, from past lives (!) to be resolved as we ASSERT ourselves forward this Moon cycle. Transformation is created as we step away from the need to control outcomes, via EMPOWERMENT whereby everyone wins – no power and control struggles/issues here. I win – you win – we ALL win.

These 3 players also create a SQUARE aspect of stress and tension Within with this Moon cycle for CHANGE that will be easier if WE decide to go WITH the change vs. resist it! Because when we resist, the WHAM! comes sooner than later, impactful and full of seemingly Unexpectedness, when all along it was meant for us to take the risk to TO DO that change! There is a “Something Fated/Destined This Way Comes” energy feeding lovingly to the Moon/Sun position in Aries from the fire of LEO – by following our hearts, supporting our needs, and standing up for what we know is right and proper for our respective lives.

Where in your birth chart is Aries? This is the area within your Life Experiences where Risk, Change and Empowerment are awaiting you! Drink from your Cup of Courage and LEAP!

It’s been a bit of a roller-coaster ride since February 19th when the Sun entered Pisces (00 degrees), joining Mercury and Neptune (sitting at 15 degrees). Then the New Moon began at 15 degrees (Moon and Sun together) as of March 6th, with Mercury newly Stationed Retrograde (Rx). The Pre-Rx Shadow period of Mercury began February 19th too…bringing us all into a Mental Body, Emotional Body and Spiritual Body journey.

IMG_8223Dreaming, imagining, drama, victim-oriented thoughts/feelings, seemingly swimming, floating and feeling our way forward ever since! Pisces is our mutable Water energy element – ability to go with the flow – of energy, thoughts, dreams, feelings, intuition – whatever floated your boat! No straight lines of logic here! Circular, spiral, rippling towards the eventual seemingly necessary destination – of what? Where were you headed mid-February and where have you ended up now? Was the journey getting here better than you could have imagined? Magical even? Unexpected twists, turns, connections, disconnections, reconnections along the way?

Today we have TWO Astrological events happening:

  • The Sun leaves watery mystical spiritual Pisces (and the last sign of Winter!!) at 3:59 pm MDT to enter the cardinal FIRE of Aries at 00 degrees – bringing forth courage, assertiveness, warrior energy, pioneering and exploring new areas of your Inner You to create NEW Action outwardly these next 3 months until Summer Solstice. So begins the Vernal or Spring Equinox and the season of Spring! Snows are melting, birds are chirping, greening is just waiting to burst forth – especially here in the Canadian Western prairie regions where we’ve undergone a frigid Polar Vortex for weeks on end. A Blessing as Winter ends.
  • The Moon moves directly opposite the Sun 4 hours later at 00 degrees of Libra at 7:42 pm MDT, to become the Full Moon, bringing ILLUMINATION, a spotlight, upon the need for Emotional Balance. The Full Moon reflects the Unconscious Desires of the Sun. What could a Fiery Sun be reflecting in the Light of the Full Moon in Air?
  • This day the Sun is in Aries– Fire, New Beginnings, Self-Focus, Innocence/Authenticity, Self-discovery, Independence, Courage, and Disengaging Self-Absorption (according to Jan Spiller’s New Moon Astrology);
  • and the Full Moon is in Libra– Air, Union/Marriage, Negotiation Skills, Harmony, Sociability / diplomacy, Refinement, and Healing co-dependency. Those close one-on-one relationship conversations you’ve been meaning to follow up on.

IMG_5162The Sabian Symbols for these two events are as follows (from Lynda Hill & Richard Hill’s The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle):

  • Sun’s entry into Aries: A Woman Has Risen Out of the Ocean, A Seal is Embracing Her– new understandings and awareness are coming to light. Something new is emerging and it needs to be welcomed and nurtured. This is the beginning of a whole new impulse, creative and responsive. Emergence of a whole new potentiality. Emergence of the feminine into concrete manifestation. SHADOW: using the masculine drive to overshadow the emotions. Refusing to move into a new state of being because one is held back by previous life conditions.
  • Moon’s entry into Libra: A Butterfly Preserved and Made Perfect With a Dart Through It beauty in shape or from has been frozen in one moment, denying the natural process of decay. An archetypal death is symbolized, perfection through sacrifice. As inspiring as this process can be, this can bring difficulties in moving on or changing the situation. Perfection and beauty made immortal. SHADOW: stopping others from growth and change for personal satisfaction or needs. Surrender and immobilisation.

Here we MUST embrace our Feminine side AND allow the Death of an ideal we witnessed and perhaps wished to experience MORE of during the Pisces journey. It is time to come into the sunlight, deal with reality AND BE MORE of our Spiritual self whilst listening in to our Feminine gifts (men and women both!) of feelings, intuition, insights, receiving rather than doing/acting. The acting comes AFTER we receive the Wisdom from Within. Not before…the before action comes from Ego-self wanting to DO SOMETHING NOW! Chomping at the bit so-to-speak.

426ECBEE-5D25-4B6F-B085-2855038969A7Enjoy the new sap of energy coursing through your veins, yes! Take note of the creative inspirations of whatever NEW creative ideas are coming your way, yes! AND be PATIENT. Aries can bring Impatience. Libra can bring INDECISION. Weigh and measure the pros and cons – yet don’t overthink – you may miss out on that NEW opportunity!

Create an “AND” as much as possible this week and these next 3 months. It doesn’t have to be Either/Or. We can have BOTH. Namaste

Today the New Moon – when the Moon & Sun stand together – begins at 9:05 a.m. MST, within 15 degrees of Pisces 47′ celestial longitude – our mutable Water sign of the Zodiac.

c2238-balloons2band2borbsPisces brings the MAGIC, the MOVIES and the ILLUSIONS…

Pisces represents our Spiritual Body, while the Moon is our Emotional Body and the Sun our Soul body. Interesting dance of how we DO our Spiritual practice, connecting Inward/Within to centre, ground, and listen to our innate Wisdom, while we end something significant in our life. What will you be ending in your life this month?

Neptune, ruler of Pisces, stands beside the Moon/Sun duo, along with Vesta – one of the 4 Feminine Asteroids – at 16 degrees of Pisces. This combo brings forth IMAGINATION + FOCUSED ATTENTION close to home & hearth.

Bringing up the rear, at the 29th degree of Pisces, is our Mercury Rx (retrograde) freshly Stationed Rx as of yesterday! Mercury represents our Mental body, and in the Rx motion, is taking a Vacation from Logic, diving deeply into the waters of creative imagination, thinking outside the box, following intuitive hits of insight for Next Step actions, while FEELING your way forward along the way…

Yes, let the March Madness begin!

Looking at the chart for this New Moon cycle, I see the details of the following:

  • There is something FATED/DESTINED this month – whereby as we all Let Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning, we clarify, focus upon, and Imagine our ‘Garden of Eden’ or Paradise down here on Earth. Truly, we can and will. What, in your Wildest Dreams, have you always dreamed of manifesting for your life? NOW is the time to do so.
  • Part of the Letting Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning – will be that Shadow piece of Pisces, left over from the Old Age of Pisces – that DRAMA TRIANGLE role-play merry-go-round of VICTIM – RESCUE(R) – BULLY/PERSECUTOR. The more you become conscious of how you PLAY at DRAMA in your life, and with the people in your life, the more you will realize how this cycle perpetuates smallness, ‘less-than’ thinking and being. Question is: once conscious of any/all of these roles your Ego-self likes to play, are you now READY, WILLING & WANT TO…Let It All Go?
  • The other part of Letting Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning – will be our attachment to our Addictions, avenues for Escapism, Avoidance, Denial, Resistance – you name it, the Ego-self can be relentless in its efforts to keep the status quo – “Why bring in change? Why upset the apple cart of my current life? It’s all okay, really, it is!” Here’s where we can decide, in the face of the loudness of HOW our respective addictions show up to distract, deny et al our Soul’s need to expand and be more in our lives – can you SEE how the addiction(s) keep you from BEING your True Authentic Self/Highest & BEST Self? Here is where the MIND MOVIES come in…the ILLUSIONS or DELUSIONS our respective Ego-Self brings forth to keep us within that Victimization role, wanting/needing/begging to be Rescued (or doing the Rescuing for Others!), or turning to Bullying/Persecuting Others from our pain point of Victim – because hey, I’d rather NOT feel that pain point, so I’ll just project it onto someone else, ‘k? This is how the Ego-self works – and the Drama in the world works. Via pain, perpetuating it, growing it, nurturing it – along that Drama Triangle.
  • Interestingly, the KEY to coming OFF that Drama Triangle? Is meditation, yoga, Nature walks (as examples) anything that brings you back INTO yourself, Within, to face your True Self/Higher Self – to BE one WITH yourself. Centred, calm, grounded, released from the hampster wheel of perpetual running away from/chasing your pain points. The more we connect Within, embrace our Spiritual Self/Higher Self – understand and accept that you are Eternal – that there is more beyond this physical body on this physical earth plane – there will no longer be a NEED to chase or run – OUTSIDE OF SELF.
  • Question is: What are you running from? What are you chasing? Both of these bring all of us OUTSIDE of ourselves, into the Drama, into the victim, rescue me, I feel bullied mindset – that is all just an illusion set up in the mental body (Mind Movies) via the Ego-self to NOT allow in change….we ALL do this in some regard. It is part of the human condition. Are you READY, WILLING & WANT TO…change it? Move beyond this illusion/delusion that keeps you from IMAGINING a Better, Truer life beyond the drama?

dsc05095Chiron, the Healer of our Woundedness, has entered Aries and sits at 00 degrees Aries 54′ – cardinal Fire, beckoning a NEW CYCLE of HOW we instinctively ACT, without editing our actions due to fear of being rejected by others for doing so. Chiron, doing the healing “cleanup on aisle 5” after Uranus’ journey through Aries (May 29, 2010 – March 5, 2019) whereby we learned to allow our innovative/inventive Authentic Self/Maverick side to show up as we learned to Pioneer and Explore new avenues Within that we had no idea existed OR were frightened to experience, before 2010!

Look back over these past 9 years (note that this dovetails with the 9-year cycle of Numerology!) and take stock of yourself: Where were you in 2010? What were you DOING (action) back then, compared to now? How were you living your independent life, learning all about ME, MYSELF & I? How are you living it, NOW? Do you see the difference in yourself? The growth, and spiritual maturity?

Whatever trauma, pain and/or suffering you’ve experienced along the way will now be Healed, via Chiron’s journey through Aries these next 8 years (until April 2017). Allow the pain of separation, of not feeling okay to BE ME authentically (and this does NOT mean you need to hide yourself away from others while doing so) – come OUT of the ISOLATION! It is time to BE ME within the WE – as in any relationship or partnership you’ve been hiding away from experiencing! It is OKAY to BE YOU. Straight up!

New Moon Solar Eclipse 2015

Uranus has moved from Aries into Taurus and sits at 00 degrees Taurus 01′ heralding another NEW CYCLE of values, worthiness, our connection to the energy of MONEY, how we create opportunities for bringing income into our lives. Times they have been changing, drastically, since Pluto began its Transformative journey through Capricorn (ruler of ambition, goals, traditional work/business practices) since early 2007 (until 2024!). Both Taurus and Capricorn are Earth signs – being grounded, practical, hands-on to create/make something new or renewed in our lives.

Taurus does NOT like change! Uranus is ALL ABOUT CHANGE – Unexpectedly so! For the next 7 years, I expect, due to Technology (Uranus rules Tech!) we’ll experience some drastic change in our monetary systems. Could it be that futuristic idea of credits will replace paper money? Could it be we will transform what we thought to be of value, worth and effort – will we look back fondly to what was a tactile, “I can FEEL this money in my hands” era as it morphs into something more virtual/unseen? How will a fixed Earth sign like Taurus FEEL and DEAL with this? Seeing is believing, according to the earth signs!

Do you know, today, what your values are? What do you value? What is worth your time, energy and money? How worthy are your current skills, talents and resources you have that help you “bring home the bacon”? Considering how many industries have died over the last 5-10 years, so quickly, quietly almost, we find ourselves scrambling to catch up with quick-changing technology, new ways of reinventing ourselves to BE current, employed/self-employed…on and on…

Interesting how Apple shares have had a time of it since the beginning of 2019 – technology itself – and how it is able to keep its shareholders happy, money-wise. HHHmmm….what’s next on the horizon? We will soon see, experience and deal with it all.

Yes, the March Madness, indeed! Endings, new Beginnings…Letting Go of the Old ways of coping/hiding/denying…Welcoming in the New Ways of Expecting Change, valuing it, Healing our pain points along the way. Way to go March –  in like a Lion indeed!

Hi Everyone!

We’ve been experiencing the Full Moon since 8:53 a.m. MST this morning, February 19, 2019 at 00 degrees Virgo 42′ – in our mutable earth sign of the Zodiac. The Sun sat directly opposite, at 00 degrees Pisces 42′ – yes, the Sun entered Pisces as of 4:04 pm MST Monday!

cropped-gibbous2bmoon2bw2bjupiter2.jpgAnd we also have Mercury  + Neptune (ruler of Pisces) + Vesta in Pisces too! As of TODAY, we entered the pre-Mercury Rx (retrograde) SHADOW timing – those 2 weeks leading up to the actual Mercury Rx timing – within the mutable water sign of Pisces. We’ll be experiencing some vivid, technicolour dreams, high intuition, emotional feelings, and discerning how we may still be addicted to Drama (that Drama Triangle) in our lives over the next 2 months! I’ll post about this another day.

Within the chart of today’s Full Moon in Virgo, I see SEVERAL YOD’s, Fingers of God planetary formations – beckoning us all to Let Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning that we’ve been hanging onto for how many lifetimes now?! LOL!

Here’s a wee summary of each YOD:

  • Pointing to the SUN at 00 degrees of Pisces – soulfully, how are you connecting Within to your spiritual body/Higher Self these days? What have you been allowing to get in the way of this practice?
  • Pointing to the VERTEX at 02 degrees of Libra – something Destined/Fated this way comes – a relationship or partnership? Coming or going? Do you need to let one go to make room for a newer, better, healthier one?
  • Pointing to the Full Moon at 00 degrees of Virgo – how is your desire to Be of Service being Illuminated during this moon phase? And are you also INCLUDING Being of Service to the health of your Physical Body, not just to the daily work you do? How can you perfect this daily process? And not use Perfectionism as a delay tactic?
  • Pointing to Chiron now at 00 degrees of Aries – healing vs. editing how we Instinctually Take Action With the Physical Body. Ta Da! Announce that “I AM HERE PEOPLE!” and do it assertively vs. aggressively or as your Ego-self who wants to be made much of. Chiron helps us to heal any areas where we’re hypersensitive to feeling we’ll be rejected by others for BEing truly authentically ME! Embrace your uniqueness AND your authenticity – WHO ARE YOU, TRULY?

dsc05003Then we’re also experiencing FOUR areas of our lives in need of change – ALL AT THE SAME TIME! This comes from the continuing Cardinal Grand Square – hooking up planets in the 4 cardinal signs which always initiate much-needed CHANGE in our lives.

Here we have the following change players:

  • ERIS + URANUS in Aries – rebalancing our Inner Divine Feminine/Divine Masculine energies AND Unexpected Change to help us innovate/invent something NEW as we Pioneer & Explore new Inner roads of Self we hadn’t the courage to do before now.
  • NORTH NODE in Cancer – the direction our Collective Soul wishes to head into – where we shake off the mantles of Duty & Necessity – to take time to Nurture, smell the roses, play with the kids, see family & friends. It is NOT all about work, anymore!
  • PALLAS in Libra, Rx – our Wisdom from Within Feminine Asteroid – one of the 4 faces of Venus/the Goddess – how well are you balancing / equalizing / harmonizing with your own Inner Wisdom? And listening to it? And following it? MEN & WOMEN, both? The Rx (retrograde) direction means this will present itself rather personally for each of us. Where is Libra in your birth chart? THIS is where you’ll experience this change in your life.
  • Lastly, the SOUTH NODE + PLUTO in Capricorn – here Unresolved Issues from past lives, perhaps due to the need for Power & Control/Greed vs. Empowerment, creating a win-win for all involved? Since January 4th’s Solar Eclipse in Capricorn we’ve been experiencing, ever loudly, the INTEGRITY of how we and others DO business. Are you allowing your integrity to go by the wayside in order to keep the money rolling in? What are you allowing, from other’s demands of your time, energy & perhaps money, that is less than integral? Have you noticed others’ integrity issues? Have you spoken up about it? Capricorn also rules our Reputation out in the world. Take care of the BUSINESS of HOW you & others DO BUSINESS. Pluto’s been unearthing dirty secrets since 2007 in the wider world amongst all of our traditional institutions/corporations. He’ll continue to do so until 2024… no time like the present to make some CHANGE here yourself…

dsc05276VIRGO loves to know the rules of engagement – HOW do I DO this? Whatever THIS is. The need to BE perfect about it is how our Ego-self gets in the way to delay accomplishment, completion, putting projects to bed. Watch out for your Ego-self’s denials, delay tactics, fears to risk anything NEW to occur this Full Moon, while also allowing yourself to Let Go of those Old Patterns of Conditioning.

Love how these Moon cycles give us ample opportunity to LET GO, evolve Emotionally & Spiritually, as we feel our way forward, and as we are guided by our intuition. Be aware by becoming Conscious of your Ego-self’s manipulations along the way!

Namaste

Hi Everyone! Brrrr…bit of a Polar Vortex we are experiencing up here in Canada these days! Little snow for us in southern Alberta – not like last year at all. -36C with the windchill today…not used to real Winter lol!

On to warmer thoughts…the New Moon begins another Moon cycle today at 2:04 pm MST at 15 degrees of Aquarius 45′ – bringing in the fixed air element of community-mindedness, BEING your True Authentic Self within that community AND allowing yourself to invent/innovate Self and Others along the way!

Along with the New Moon phase initiating something NEW as our Future Selves bring forward innovation/invention into the NOW, it is interesting to note the following:

  • Uranus rules Aquarius (therefore rules this Moon cycle) and sitting at 28 degrees of Aries brings Unexpected Change into our Independent natures. Here the change could be Yes! Bring your uniqueness to the table AND I’ll bring my uniqueness too – let’s see how combining the two makes an even more unique scenario! Cool! This is where the inventiveness/innovation comes into play…Unexpectedly so…
  • Two other key planetary figures within Aries are influencing Uranus too –  ERIS & MARS (sister/brother) at 23 degrees of Aries – rebalancing our Inner Divine Feminine/Masculine energies AND taking Action accordingly – assertively vs. aggressively – bringing opportunity to Stand Your Ground about what YOU WANT TO HAPPEN this Moon cycle!
  • The Cardinal Grand Square continues, linking the North Node in Cancer to Pallas in Libra to Pluto in Capricorn to Eris/Mars + Uranus in Aries – so FOUR areas of our lives are asking for NEW ACTION, all at the same time! We’re healing from duty & necessity + rebalancing our Inner Wisdom access + transforming the integrity of how/with whom we do business + connecting with our True Authentic Selves assertively (with balanced Inner Feminine/Masculine energies) asking for what we want through timely Action. Whew!
  • Then there’s the YOD, Finger of God pointing to Pallas (Inner Wisdom we access) from the base planets/points of Juno in Taurus (the VALUES & WORTHINESS of committed/equal relationships/partnerships) learning to work well with Chiron sitting at 29 degrees of Pisces! Here’s where a LOT of healing ensues this Moon cycle/month – clearing us from that Drama Triangle of living in the roles of either (or all!) Victim – Rescue(r) – Bully/Persecutor/ed – by letting go of drama your life, connecting Within to your Divine Inner Feminine/Masculine energies AND Inner Wisdom (Higher Self) aspect – to listen to your intuition, how you feel at any given moment, and then take action accordingly. Chiron is asking us all to LET GO and HEAL the old ways of BEing…step off the Drama Triangle and BE Calm, Cool & Collected from Within, and therefore, Without…healthier energetic boundaries to set Within and Without (with others).
  • Lastly: the Grand Water Trine links the North Node in Cancer with Chiron in Pisces with the Vertex in Scorpio (something Fated/Destined this way comes!) to clear out deep-seated FEARS of TRUSTING the Divine Within you – what are you manifesting? Fear-oriented results, or trust-oriented ones? What’s coming up for you this week that is emotionally triggering the Drama Triangle + Fears? North Node in Cancer asks us, collectively, to head into the direction of LESS duty/necessity and MORE expression of how you TRULY FEEL, and allow that Life-Death-Rebirth transformation to propel you beyond fears/mistrust or whatever it is your Ego-self is manufacturing Within you this week/Moon cycle!

The SABIAN Symbol for this Moon cycle:

  • Symbol: A BIG BUSINESS-MAN AT HIS DESK
  • Keywords: There is much to organize for a large business or group. Perhaps you are unable to get directly involved in the situation, bringing a sense of alienation, but have to stay behind and do the organization. Making decisions and management. Being in charge and in control.
  • SHADOW aspect: Taking advantage of being put in charge. Bossing others.

Here’s where we can take care of the details, behind-the-scenes, within the business of Life, Work, Home, Self. Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) has caught up to Pluto (transformation of fears into Empowerment/win-win for all) in our cardinal earth sign of Capricorn (yes we continue to deal with the Capricorn New Moon/Solar Eclipse energies of January 5th). How well are you making those decisions, taking charge, for the good of all? Soul-oriented vs. Ego-self-oriented? Being of service…

I find it fascinating that we have these themes/energies at play during this Moon cycle and in this month, in this week. Bev Johnson-Bender and I are co-facilitating a new workshop Sunday, February 10th here in Okotoks, Alberta called: Business in Okotoks: How Do We Connect Within This Community/Family? We’re combining Astrology with Family & Ancestral Healing modalities. Innovation at its best!

Leading up to this workshop we’re dealing with interested parties who are facing trust and fear issues Within that are helping them to decide “Do I join in on this workshop, or don’t I? What’s my key blockage/issue to business success here in Okotoks? Will this workshop help me resolve/dissolve/heal it and move beyond it? Can I trust that this IS what I need for me, now?”

I ask all of you: what are you mis-trusting in your life/Within? What’s your fear? Where are you creating Drama in your life? Would you like to HEAL or at least SHIFT any or all of this? How can you innovate/invent something NEW in your life, that dovetails with YOUR TRUE AUTHENTIC SELF’s needs/desires? During this Moon cycle, listen to your feelings (all of them!) and breathe through and walk through them all – have a chat with your feelings – ask WHY are you here? By the 1st QTR Moon phase you’ll be asked to undergo a Crisis of Action – Do I or Don’t I? Make your decision, then Act – Leap of Faith?

I love the Moon cycles – they teach us to BE CONSCIOUS of our motivations, thoughts and feelings – all in aid of becoming conscious, more authentic and real. Re-invent your Daily Habits, your Inner world, and connect more solidly with your Within-Self / Higher Self / Future Self.

Namaste

At 10:16 pm MST tonight, Sunday January 20th, 2019, we’ll experience the exact timing of the Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse at 00 degrees of Leo 52′.

During a Total Lunar Eclipse, we undergo a Full Moon-to-New Moon-back to Full Moon cycle of emotions, within 5 hours! Approximately 2.5 hours prior to 10:16 pm and for 2.5 hours thereafter…be AWARE of, CONSCIOUS of, and WHAT IS YOUR INTENTION (?!) emotionally, during this Total Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon timing – because what you FEEL will be ACCELERATED…and carry on forward these next 3.5 years…

In other words: feelings of JOY, LOVE, COMPASSION, FORGIVENESS, PEACE, RAGE, ANGER, FRUSTRATION, DEPRESSION, FEAR, SADNESS, GRIEF….will all be cycled through you, at an accelerated rate, and the chief feeling will also BE something you carry forward with you for the next 3.5 -5 years – a year for every hour of the Eclipse…

LEO is our fixed fire sign of (according to Jan Spiller’s New Moon Astrology):

  • Love & Romance
  • Creativity
  • Generosity
  • Celebration & Fun & Play
  • Dignity
  • Determination
  • Tempering Arrogance
  • Physically Ruling: the heart, back, spine, exhaustion/heat exhaustion, and inflammation.

Any Ego-self Shadow pieces can be left at the door today. Temper the anger, I’m the King/Queen of the Castle arrogance, and connect further with your HEART. Be HEARTFELT, feel it HEARTFULLY, and bring your HEART to the table. Stand up for yourself, and support your heartfelt needs/desires – WITH HEART – vs. drama/arrogance. See the difference? How you RESPOND vs. REACT is key – yet, keep on FEELING it all, along the way…

The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse is (according to The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle by Lynda Hill & Richard Hill):

  • SYMBOLISM: UNDER EMOTIONAL STRESS, BLOOD RUSHES TO A MAN’S HEAD
  • KEY NOTE: There is almost nothing that can be done at the moment. It is like being immobilized with neither mental or physical control. This will pass, but resistance will just make the situation worse. Difficulty containing emotional reactions. Becoming fired-up about something.
  • SHADOW: Making yourself ill through emotional suppression (!!!) Take note!

Since the New Moon/Solar Eclipse of January 5th in Capricorn, we’ve been undergoing a full Chakra Re-Boot! We began working with our Root Chakra imbalances/blockages that day, and today, 15 days later, we now work with the Crown Chakra’s. See my New Moon/Solar Eclipse post for the Root Chakra details. Here are the Crown Chakra details (a combination from Medical Astrology & The Chopra Center):

  • Ruled by: the SUN & associated with LEO
  • Glands Therein: Hypothalamus & Pineal
  • Colour: VIOLET
  • Element Highlighted: ALL – Light, Ether, Air, Earth, Fire, Water
  • Main Issues: Spirituality, Relationship to God/TAO, Universal Simplex
  • When Imbalanced: lacks inspiration, aimlessness, feel lonely, excessive materialism, lacks spiritual connection, difficulty meditating, exhaustion, sensitive to light/sounds, poor sleep habits, migraines or tension headaches.
  • When Blocked: Difficulty meditating. Lack of spiritual connections. Aimlessness.
  • MANTRA to Use: OM – say this to yourself, in meditation, over and over, for 10 minutes. Do this daily until you shift your imbalances/blockages.
  • Affirmation to Use: I honour the Divine Within me and all living things.

Looking at the chart for this Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse – I see the following:

  • Water Grand Trine – so yes, we WILL experience emotionality/feelings and intuitive hits of insight to receive messages from Within, Above – to help us FEEL as we move forward…Chiron in Pisces will HEAL the wounds to connecting spiritually/emotionally/intuitionally/energetically with ourselves and everyone around us. The North Node in Cancer beckons us into the direction, soulfully, of the collective Family of Man, with compassion, intuition, and sensitivity to how we and others feel around us. And, Ceres in Scorpio brings forth emotional nurturance through the dark waters of our fears, deep-seated as they may be, to be released, cleansed and let go. To find our PASSIONATE natures lying underneath those waters of dark emotions we fear to feel, let alone walk through.
  • Cardinal Grand Square – 4 areas of Life Experience exhibiting needs for CHANGE – ALL AT THE SAME TIME! – from Eris & Uranus in Aries (independent nature to Explore, Pioneer anew, stand up as Warrior if need be) + North Node in Cancer (direction our Soul wishes to head into WITH sensitivity / feeling / compassion / intuition) + Pluto & Mercury & South Node in Capricorn (unresolved issues from Past Lives/this lifetime regarding Power & Control vs. Empowerment + Self Talk/Communicating about your goals, responsibilities, and upward-moving change in direction).
  • And, a Constant Letting Go of OLD PATTERNS of CONDITIONING x 4 (x 6 for we folks living in Okotoks!)….I won’t go into the gory details – you’ll understand exactly what your patterns are that you’ll be releasing this day and for the next 3.5 years. Let me say this: the YODS, Fingers of God patterns create a pentagram here in Okotoks – the Hand of the Goddess – to connect with your Divine Feminine nature and abilities – both women and men – and all mixtures of natures. FEEL, BE, RECEIVE, INTUIT, BREATHE…

Luckily for us this happens later today – however, leading up to 7:45 pm, well…those of us more sensitive to these subtle changes will have already been riding the waves of emotion/migraines/tension headaches/sleeplessness/buying things vs. spending time Within this past week…and for most of you, the subtleties of a Lunar Eclipse will pass on through you almost Unconsciously…while for the rest of us…not so much…

Bottom Line: FEEL your emotions, STAY WITH THEM, take note of your INTUITIVE HITS OF INSIGHT along the way, and ENJOY this ride that will open up your Crown Chakra for clearer connections with YOUR Divine Spirit/Soul-Self! Heartfully…

Today marks the 5th anniversary of Dad’s passing AND we’re celebrating my youngest sister’s birthday, without our middle sister – Blessed BE Dad and Tamra! We LOVE you both so much!

Namaste
