Invent & Innovate: New Moon in Aquarius!

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

Full Moon in Taurus: Unexpected Hands-on Change – Are you ready?

This Full Moon phase begins Wednesday October 24, 2018 at 10:45 am MDT in the fixed earth sign of Taurus at 01 degrees and 13′. The Sun sits opposite the Moon at 01 degrees of Scorpio 13′. The Full Moon reflects the unconscious desires of the Sun. What are yours?

Oct 2018 Pics 059The Moon represents our Emotional Body, daily habits, and how well we feel those feelings, follow our intuition, and deal with the emotional baggage we carry with us. The Sun represents our vital Soul self, the energy that keeps us moving forward in life.

Emotionally, Taurus brings forth our values, worthiness, self-esteem and self-confidence issues. Soulfully, we’re also treading through the deep-seated emotional waters of Scorpio – where our Ego-self hides its fears, denials and resistance to change – resistance to truly experiencing our Passionate Natures.

This Full Moon creates a Fixed Grand Square planetary formation, all within the fixed signs, bringing forth the need to deal with all the details at hand AND perhaps forgetting to come up for air to see the Big Picture. Uranus is currently Rx (retrograde) sitting at 00 degrees of Taurus, creating Unexpected Change, emotionally, for all. The Fixed signs do NOT like change…so this will be an interesting few days for everyone!

Oct 2018 Pics 009The other characters involved within the Fixed Grand Square are:

  • North Node Rx in LEO: the direction our Souls wish us to move into at this time; a direction we do not necessarily feel comfortable experiencing. Leo rules the heart, creativity, fun and play, leading as a team player, and selling yourself, heartfully. Leo also rules the back and spine: how well are you supporting YOUR unconscious desires AND supporting your heartfelt needs? For YOUR life? For YOU? Being a fixed fire sign, we can stubbornly put others first, ourselves second, because we always have, why change now? Time to put YOURSELF FIRST.
  • South Node Rx in Aquarius: the direction our Souls have LOTS of experience of, and where we can bring in Unresolved Issues from our past – past lives, and/or earlier this lifetime. Could be people, situations, circumstances from the past that come forward this Full Moon phase to help you BE AUTHENTIC, BE REAL and BE TRULY YOU (New Age of Aquarius means all of us are learning to BE/DO this as we continue to transition away from the Old Age of Pisces). If you’re not, they/the situation will call you up on the carpet to BE so.
  • A Square situation in Astrology creates Stress and Tension Within to cause change and usually much-needed at this time. Envision you’re sitting at a table seating four people. You can see directly into the eyes of the person sitting opposite you; you need to move your head/body somewhat to engage the people on your left or right. This movement IS the CHANGE – in focus, perspective, thoughts, feelings and insights. Are you willing to take a look/listen? To allow those true feelings to come forth and be witnessed by others around you?
  • In other words – we have another Heart-opening opportunity to BE part of the human condition, to NOT hide out in the Shadows.

Taurus rules the creativity we each wish to use for self, hands-on, using all our senses; Leo rules the innocent creativity, part of that Inner Child piece we each carry Within. Aquarius rules our ability to be unemotionally involved, while being community-minded; Scorpio rules our deepest passionate natures, and perhaps hiding this part of ourselves, feeling too vulnerable to be SEEN, truly.

Oct 2018 Pics 033All four elements are brought to the table for us to use this Full Moon. Choose wisely, creatively, sensuously, passionately, heartfully, and authentically. BE all of who you truly are. Allow yourself to SHINE and ILLUMINATE yourself to others.

Blessed BE!

New Moon in Aquarius: Innovating

dsc05288Hi All! The last Moon cycle was quite a ride with Mercury Rx (Retrograde) bringing forth much-needed goal-setting changes of mindsets! Talk about having a month’s worth of New Year’s Resolutions to sort through! LOL!

The current Moon cycle began with the New Moon phase on January 27th at 5:08pm MST at the following astrological coordinates: 08 degrees of Aquarius 15′ (think of these coordinates as cosmic longitude to navigate within your Birth Chart!). Here BOTH the Moon and Sun sat together at the same place in time, initiating yet another new cycle of something NEW this way comes!

Aquarius is the fixed air sign, signifying originality, innovation, community, and truly standing IN your True Self orientation! And if you’re not quite sure what your True Self is all about, keep watching, listening, feeling and intuiting yourself this full Moon cycle to gain insights about yourself!

Aquarius brings forth our Future Self into the NOW, with all her/his bright and original ideas! So if you’re inspired to explore, talk and/or write about some aspect of you, your life, or how you’d like your life to now BE, this is the Moon cycle to share it within your community of peeps.

dsc05324Each Moon cycle brings forth inner awareness, consciously, to the surface. What is hidden within the dark moments of the New Moon is some aspect of your Ego-mind Self that doesn’t want to BE in the Light (conscious) before now. Each Moon cycle brings themes, via the astrological sign it is in, and the connections the Moon/Sun make to the other planets in our solar system, at the moment of the New Moon phase – always the new beginning after the ending of the previous Moon cycle.

Aquarius, within the natural wheel of Astrology, rules the 11th House – what wishes and dreams do you have for your near future? Who are the people in your life supporting those dreams and who are not? What ‘community’ are you joining to those ends? As in groups, memberships, circle of friends and colleagues? Look around you to ‘see’ the outer mirror reflected back to you – namely the people in your life. They represent YOU in the outer world, a reflection of YOUR inner world/connection of your True Self. Cool!

Looking at this New Moon cycle’s chart I see the following connections between the Moon/Sun and:

  • The North Node in the mutable earth sign of Virgo, Rx: here we have some old patterns of conditioning that need to be let go of at some point this Moon cycle in order to embrace the forward-moving direction our Souls wish us to move into re: being of service (aka work, volunteering, hobbies) out in our respective worlds. Watch out for that perfectionism/procrastination distraction that the Ego-mind Self can get caught up in to avoid change in your life! The Rx (Retrograde) signifies something deeply personal – we take it personally – until the charge of whatever it is we need to let go of is healed and let go of.
  • The Part of Fortune – our Joy: this sensitive point is in the fixed fire sign of Leo. Here our Joy is about the fun and play of Creativity, being that innocent nature child, creating just for the fun of it! Leo also rules the heart and back – heartfully, do you have your back? As in are you supporting yourself in your Joy? Do you know what Joy feels like? The connection with the Moon/Sun this cycle is an opposition whereby we can continue to be polarized between being fixed on MY innovations OR being fixed in creating what I WANT! How about creating an ‘AND’ here? BE innovative and original (Aquarius) AND creative WITH others? As in your community. And this goes way beyond art folks! How are you creating community, with laughter, fun and play, in your world?

dsc05342Interestingly, this New Moon doesn’t make any other direct connections with any of the other planets. The Cardinal Grand Square formation of planets within the 4 cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) is still in play! Here are the characters initiating much-needed CHANGE in your life:

  • Uranus + Eris in the cardinal fire sign of Aries: at 20 and 22 degrees of Aries – Unexpected Change to typical gender roles continues. Our inner Warrior and Pioneer selves are still undergoing major transformation – drinking from that cup of Courage (Aries) to BE authentic within your own body! As in being comfortable in your own skin! BE YOU! No matter the gender – be YOU! Uniqueness in this world IS the goal. Not to be feared or hidden away. Doing so brings forth the need for addictions, distractions and such from our Ego-mind Self to keep it all in the fear frame, to be hidden away. Why? What’s so scary about BEing You anyway? Truly. And being in a woman’s body or man’s body doesn’t mean either gender is Less Than…and it never has. Yet another myth to be dispelled, which both Eris and Uranus have been dancing together about since 2012 especially!
  • Vesta in the cardinal water sign of Cancer, Rx: at 25 degrees of Cancer – here the feeling body (ruled by the Moon!) brings forth a concentrated focus on how you feel those emotions, take notice of your intuition, and whatever symbolism and insights that complete the picture of your Inner Life. Live from the Inside-Out! BE the feeling body you truly are – stop running away from feeling those feelings! Make peace with your Ego-mind Self’s need to do that Flight or Fight regimen that no longer gains us anything (unless of course we are in the middle of some real danger, then yes please – run!). Perceived danger is different from real danger. If your physical life isn’t about to be taken – then what are you running away from? Ask that Ego-mind Self, “What ARE you afraid of here? How can I help? What do you need to feel safe?” Cancer also brings forth issues of our family of origin, Mom, mothering and nurturance. How well have you been nurturing/loving You? Hhhhmmm….
  • Jupiter in the cardinal air sign of Libra: at 23 degrees of Libra – here we are being called to EXPAND our realm of relationships and partnerships beyond current boundaries we’ve set up since who knows how long. Could be you decide to end some relationships – or at least change them – because they haven’t been working for you or with you for some time now. Could be some are co-dependency rather than inter-dependent or intra-dependent? Interesting to delve into and ‘see’ the reality of them now. Libra is an air sign – so journal, chat and think about it all.
  • Pluto + Mercury in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn: at 17 and 15 degrees of Capricorn – we are still undergoing a HUGE transformation, mindfully, of how we set goals towards our respective material gain in the world. Via career, work, volunteering – whatever it is that has you out and about in the world to gain materially, literally, physically. Any earth sign means being tactile, hands-on and wanting to SEE the fruits of our labours! In current society, “Money, Money, Money!” For those of us struggling with continued unemployment, what used to be very important is not anymore. Keeping up with the Jones’s (who were they again?) or what others think (!) isn’t necessary, and never was. BEing unemployed for long periods of time is humbling, bringing forth resourcefulness and thinking outside the box in order to survive and thrive despite money hardships (aka debt). Allow this transformation to continue – you will see changes in mindsets here, continuing this Moon cycle (we started it around the last Full Moon). And when the Ego-mind Self gets in the way, you’ll see power and control issues coming forth! The best outcome is EMPOWERMENT – self and others create a ‘win-win’ for all! Which is what Capricorn wants!

Check out these cosmic longitude coordinates within your birth chart to see what 4 areas of your life are being renewed with NEW initiatives since the last Full Moon! Interesting how we continue to work out strategies for ourselves from one Moon cycle to the next.

dsc05321Saturn + Vertex + Juno are all together in the late degrees of Sagittarius (24, 25 and 28, respectively). Here we are seeking our Higher Truth via how our lives are structured (Saturn), fateful/destined events/people in our lives (Vertex) and truly envisioning relationships/partnerships of equality (Juno). Sagittarius beckons us to stand on our Hill of Now, look back to where we’ve been, contemplate how we’ve arrived into the NOW, then turn to face our Future Hills of Now – which Hill or Hills are beckoning you forward into new territory and journeys? What IS True for You? Truly. Authentic. Original. Innovative. Bring ALL of these aspects of You to the table this Moon cycle. BE all that you can BE!

Today, the Crescent Moon cycle begins at 9:30a MST at 27 degrees of Pisces 00′ – mutable water – showing a wee bit of Light shining into that unconscious Darkness I spoke of earlier. What is it that your Ego-mind Self is afraid to have uncovered this Moon cycle? The Crescent Moon phase means there will be a struggle between the OLD and the NEW. Something old is dying, emotionally, Within you. Will you allow it to or will you hold onto it a while longer? Pisces brings forth any issues of that Drama Triangle (victim or rescuer or persecution) that we may be hanging onto. Find the House where Pisces resides in your birth chart to know where this “victimhood, I want to be rescued! And I feel persecuted / bullied” mindset of the Ego comes into play in your world. That “o woe is me” tape.

dsc05367Also today (!) Venus regains her Crown of Authority at 28 degrees of Pisces too! The Crown chakra indicates our connection to the Divine, our Spiritual self or Higher Self, angels, God – whatever your spiritual beliefs are – here we regain that connection in a totally renewed way! Venus represents our Desire Body – what do you truly desire, spiritually, for yourself now?

And A Note About Virgo…

To add to what I already posted today…

“You don’t become a mistake just because you have made one!”

– Author Unknown

If this isn’t about Virgo and Perfectionism, I don’t know what is! And how the Ego-Self can use making mistakes against itself, to spiral downward into that Drama Triangle of victim-rescue me-I feel persecuted….

As you ‘see’ the Virgo perfectionism issue(s) that have been brought up and about within you through the North Node in opposition to the South Node + Neptune in Pisces during this Moon cycle and ‘Neptunian November’ – can you create an ‘AND’ here?

No longer either/or – together, can you let go of that Drama Triangle and all those addictive, escapist ways and means of habits that have been keeping you small, unworthy, insignificant (victim-thinking and feeling) AND let go of the need for Perfectionism/Procrastination – AND live your life in the here and now? As the beautiful Spiritual BEing you already are?

For those of us who were born under the Pisces/Virgo Sun or Moon or Rising Sign AND for those of us who were born under the Gemini/Sagittarius Sun or Moon or Rising Sign – this Moon cycle AND ‘Neptunian November’ has been truly LOUD to get our attention about HOW we’ve been living our life, until now, with those bits and pieces of unresolved past life issues that dovetail with all of the above (and what I posted previous to this post). Finally – whew!

Gemini + Virgo + Sagittarius + Pisces have one thing in common: we are all mutable Zodiac signs, meaning we can ‘go with the flow’ AND get lost! Especially if we keep listening to others’ and take that action rather than listen to ourselves, our intuition as to what action is true for us. This doesn’t mean talking to others is not okay – it means DISCERNMENT is required along the way so that we don’t “get lost” and out to sea wondering “Where is MY life in all of this?”.

Next steps? Know what it is you are releasing – take off those rose-coloured glasses (and there could be more than one set you’re wearing!) of the Magic, Movies and Illusion that is Neptune/Pisces – what have you been deluding yourself about that rests with what your Ego-mind/Self needed to control and BE within in order to live in this world? Acknowledge what it is, finally, that you need to Let Go Of.

Love yourself, Within and Without, Ego-Self and True Self as one, be honest about it. Face it, walk through the pain and tears and FORGIVE. Then Love yourself, hug yourself and hand off those glasses (how many pairs are you letting go here?) to God, your Angels – whomever you know to be that Higher Power of Light, and take the next baby step forward – INto your renewed, truer life.

“What will it take for me, now, to live my true life, authentically and honestly, for now on? What will it take?”

Namaste

Gibbous Moon in Capricorn…And YOD Activation…

Mt Lorette PondsToday at 12:11p the Moon moves into the Gibbous Moon phase, at 07 degrees Capricorn 22′. By this time of the Moon cycle we are evaluating our Inner Growth progress/process – what do you CONSCIOUSLY know about yourself that you didn’t before, since the August 2nd New Moon in Leo? Heartfully, where are you?

Capricorn brings us to a cross-roads of sorts: do I stay the course I have been on OR do I head upon a higher, more challenging, yet fulfilling pathway? Where are you at? What Higher Ambition are you seeking for further Inner Fulfillment?

Capricorn asks us to set forth some goals towards long-term plans that may not show fruition soon. Can you stay the course? Do you have faith and the wisdom to commit? And there is that portion of Capricorn that looks for the material gain here – what will you be GAINING if you stay where you are vs. moving higher up along a new path?

The other item of note today: At the New Moon there was a YOD, or Finger of God formation pointing directly at the Moon/Sun position in Leo August 2nd. The two planets that create the base of this formation are:

  • Pluto, Rx (retrograde) at 15 degrees Capricorn – the Great Transformer of all things power/control/greed into EMPOWERMENT for Self and Others – aka a win-win situation all the way round. Pluto comes by to peel back the carpet of whatever our Ego/brain has been hiding underneath re: fears of moving forward, for whatever reason, excuse, piece of denial it can seek until this moment in time.
  • Neptune Rx at 11 degrees Pisces – She dissolves issues of illusion/delusion we may possibly have – especially if we still have shards of connection to that Drama Triangle from the Old Age of Pisces (victim-rescue me-bully + Martyrdom). All the excuses our Ego/brain can IMAGINE to stir up MORE fears to do otherwise…If we choose to do so, we can IMAGINE BETTER, MORE, and EASE & GRACE for ourselves. We can! Change the perspective…easy peasy!
  • South Node Rx at 12 degrees Pisces – Holding hands with Neptune Rx, the South Node or Dragon’s Tail also brings us a CHOICE: Do I choose to allow that Dragon’s Tail to swish away ALL the PAST ways of how I’ve dealt with that Drama Triangle AND choose to IMAGINE Better, More, with Ease & Grace etc for myself? AND bring forth ALL the GEMS of what still works from the Old Age of Pisces (faith, connection to Spirit/God/Light of All whatever you name it) with the  inner knowing that I am supported, guided and will NOT Fall/Fail on a Higher Path into the Unknown of what is my Destiny (because we really don’t know how it will all work out – and may be pleasantly surprised to SEE MORE/BETTER/HIGHER – far beyond our own creative imaginings)! OR, just stay the course, do the same old/same old things, like we’ve been doing over and over and over again for How Many Lifetimes Now? Your choice.

Indian Paintbrush, Mt Lorette Ponds 2016

Between today and just prior to the August 21st Disseminating Moon phase in Aries, therefore through the Full Moon in Aquarius (I will write a post separately for this phase) we will ALL be struggling in some regard with:

  • Pluto Rx in Capricorn letting GO of Old Patterns of Conditioning re: choosing HEART (Leo) vs. GAIN (Capricorn) AND Heartfully Gaining in the Process. What would happen if you LEAD from your Heart’s Desires towards Material Gain, without Power/Control issues leading the way? What are your Old Patterns of Conditioning in this regard? You will soon find out…
  • Neptune Rx with South Node Rx in Pisces letting GO of Old Patterns of Conditioning to HEARTFULLY have FAITH in your Higher Creative Self/Intuition/Inner Knowing of Listening Inside yourself (meditation/mantras/BEing in silence with yourself) that Following the Heart’s True Desires WILL Manifest Greater rewards in your life- and it all begins with your IMAGINATION – what can you enVISION that is MORE/BETTER/HIGHER for your Life now? Without judgement, or fear, or scoffing at the very idea?
  • While we all undergo this process, guess what also happens? Pluto Rx in Capricorn learns to WORK WITH Neptune Rx + South Node Rx in Pisces! We create an AND in some regard, Within Self, that hasn’t been forged before now. A new skill, way of coping that hasn’t seen the Light of Day. Cool! Aren’t you excited to ‘see’ how this is all going to come out? I am!
Hollyhocks

Hollyhocks at Cedars Villa Extendicare 2016

The Full Moon in Aquarius will ILLUMINATE any issues that still need to be addressed within that phase/during that phase – so a HUGE wakeup call for some of us, in some regard, as to HOW we’ve been ignoring our Heart’s True Desires. Perhaps you’ll realize what IS your Heart’s True Desire for the very first time this lifetime! And, Aquarius represents THIS New Age of Aquarius – and Leo (New Moon) IS the opposite sign to Aquarius.

My question to all of you: How will you navigate forward through these early days of the New Age of Aquarius if you DO NOT have Heart? If you do NOT have FAITH? If you do NOT have GOALS to imagine and move towards? Heartfully? Truly. Really.

Best of luck to you all on this interesting next piece of the Journey this Moon cycle has in store for you. And remember: what we manage to CREATE, HEARTFULLY during this Moon cycle sets us up for the September Eclipses! Energy of change that has influence in our lives for up to 3.5 years into the future!

Monkshood2

Monkshood at Cedars Villa Extendicare 2016

Also: Mercury will be assisting all of us with how we are MINDFULLY deciding what truly works re: our daily work/BEing of Service out in the world, and the health processes of our physical bodies. If we don’t have our health, how High can we Climb to Higher Heights on our Upward, Evolving Life/Soul Paths? No matter what age you are now – where do you FEEL you need to head toward now? How HIGH do you wish to climb?

Blessed BE!

enLIGHTen Up, Eh?

DSC01542

Neck Point, Nanaimo, BC 2012

I began this post at 10 this morning, was interrupted unexpectedly several times, thought I had saved what I had already written, only to find out I have to begin again! Many of us have been experiencing a LOT of Unexpectedness these past several days, unable to finish projects or tasks we’ve set for ourselves. Uranus in Aries – Expect the Unexpected AND can I complete what I WANT to complete for me, please? In between the calls for assistance from others? LOL! What happened to ‘going WITH the flow?’

Okay, back to THIS topic, and it is being suggested that I change the title…so I will…hang on…it was all about the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse…still is but not in the way I’ve written all about these planetary events in the past. Hang in there with me everyone!

Yes several planets have changed signs since this Moon cycle began March 8, signaling a NEW way of working energetically with their usual messages. Plus two eclipses, then twin-powered comets heading our way by March 22nd – closest fly-by to Earth in 260 years! Very brightly too…hence the enLIGHTen Up, eh?

DSC01545

Neck Point, Nanaimo, BC 2012

Dense dark heavy energies have been literally air-lifted off Earth and away from all heartbeats since 2016 began, and especially since this New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Pisces began March 8th. Tomorrow, Wednesday March 23rd, at 6:01a MDT – just prior to dawn – we experience the subtleness of the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon throughout all of North America. If you rise before dawn, and if you can see the Moon watch for subtle dark patches thereon. It won’t be Total Eclipse, hence the subtle darkening only.

This Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse will occur at 03 degrees of Libra 17′ – a rebalancing, equalizing of the Emotional Body (Lunar) these next 3.5 years. PLEASE NOTE: any Lunar Eclipse denotes a quickening cycle of experiencing a FULL MOON CYCLE’s emotional rollercoaster-ride within 24 hours! BE prepared – and honest – with all feelings, intuitive hits of insights, and above all – in RECEIVING the signs, signals and insights sent to you at this time.

Nothing to worry about nor fear – and yes, fears will surface – hence the Shadow of the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon as it washes over North America – we are working WITH this Moon’s energy for 24 hours to do a ‘clean sweep’ if you will of ALL fears you’ve been storing up until now. Release, release, release! Spring Cleaning at its best – from Within and out. Energetically, emotionally, and via communicating (Libra is the cardinal air sign) in new ways compared to previous experience. Relating with Self and Others in new ways. BEing vulnerable, BEing honest, BEing truly YOU. WITH Love, Compassion, Forgiveness and Strength! Always, in All Ways. Diplomacy, equality, lovingly, heartfully…

Neck Point, Nanaimo, BC 2012

During today’s interesting quest to publish this post, I had occasion to do up a chart for TODAY. Interestingly (!!!) there was a Triple-Headed YOD, or Finger of God, pointing to Jupiter (still Retrograde – Rx) + North Node Rx + MOON – all in Virgo. The planetary players that make up the base of this Triple-Headed Yod are Pallas in Aquarius and Uranus + Eris in Aries.

These planets/asteroids have been learning to work together, creating NEW self-growth talents and skills never before created. Namely, standing up for equality in some regard in your life (Pallas) within community and for Self (Aquarius) that may seem futuristic AND Free to BE Me (Uranus in Aries) with possible gender-role identity crisis – WHO AM I NOW, and I want to DO WHAT? (Eris in Aries) – as we combine a better mix of Inner Divine Feminine/Masculine energies to work WITH and TOGETHER with more ease than ever before!

MORE ability to Receive, Intuit, Feel (feminine power) AND Take Assertive (rather than aggressive) Action Out in the World (masculine power). How well are YOU marrying this mix Within Self, then working through them, Without, within relationships and partnerships in your life?

Remember: during a Yod formation, once we learn to create that new talent/skill, the energy created by working together there at the base, is sent UP to the top of the Finger (and in this case times THREE!) towards the Virgo need to BE of Service, somehow. Jupiter Rx = expansion beyond our usual boundaries of what we’ve been comfortable doing before now, related to our Purpose this Lifetime. North Node Rx = direction our respective Souls wish us to move forward into, uncomfortable as that may feel.

And the almost Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse (!) brings forth the Emotional Body – feelings, intuitive insights, ability to RECEIVE the signs and signals from our respective Guides, Angels etc. We will BE of better service if first 1) I KNOW THYSELF (Uranus in Aries), then 2) recognize that I am BOTH a mix of Divine Feminine (able to receive) AND Divine Masculine (able to assert and act) energies, then 3) ALLOW only equal and balanced relationships/partnerships in my life. THEN you’ll know WHAT you wish to expand INTO (Jupiter Rx) to ‘see’ the direction to follow (North Node Rx) AND it will FEEL just right (Moon)!

All in preparation for Wednesday’s Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse! And if you weren’t conscious of any of this going on today – don’t worry about it. You will have picked up on WHAT you needed along the way anyway, AND will know more by Thursday morning’s rush to get to work! Yes, 24 hours after the Eclipse. If not, could be 3.5 years before that Aha! moment comes in – it is your process. BE truly You – this is most important. Trust. Have Faith. It is ALL in Divine Timing. Always and in All Ways.

Blessed BE!

Leap Day 2016 & 2014…our RESET!

I was talking to a good friend of mine last weekend, zeroing in on Leap Year’s and Day’s, then thought, “Wonder what a chart of a day that only occurs once in 4 years would garner? And to compare it with the Leap Day of the previous 4 years too?” So I did and have it to share with all of you.

Because of how the Earth orbits the Sun, and how the Earth’s axis wobbles, in order to keep our current calendar on target, we must have an extra day every four years to “catch up”. Hence why, over the four years, the timing of the Sun moving into each of the Zodiac signs every month will slowly change from being as early as the 19th or 20th of the month, to being as late as the 23rd of the month! What we all call the “cusp” between signs.

This is also why Easter seems to be “early” or “late” each succeeding year too! So 2016, as a Leap Year, is a RESET year for many reasons!

See the chart below from Leap Day 2014.LeapDay2012

The first items of note is the stellium of planets within the mutable water sign of Pisces (Neptune + Chiron + Pallas + Sun) which also happens to be the apex of a mutable T-square formation from the Moon’s Nodes + the Moon (with South Node in mutable air sign of Gemini in opposition to Juno in mutable fire sign of Sagittarius). T-squares between planets create energetic stress and tension within us, facilitating action for much-needed change – if we are listening and in tune with ourselves. Otherwise, the change happens despite ourselves! Coupled with these mutable signs – going WITH the flow was key!

Neptune sits at 00 degrees Pisces – it had just entered the sign it rules as of February 4th 2012 – a brand NEW CYCLE of connecting with our Spiritual / Divine Self after 165 years! Chiron has assisted with healing the wound of our Spiritual separation from ourselves (aka Ego Mind and Physical Body devoid of our Spirit) since April 2010, giving us two years of figuring this out before Neptune showed up in 2012 to help DISSOLVE the illusion/delusions we were under up until then. We have also been learning to understand ourselves more ENERGETICALLY and SPIRITUALLY – and that one is the other – energetically we are Spiritual. And vice versa. The personal energetic boundaries have caused more sensitivity for all of us, whether we have been conscious of it or not.

Pallas, one of the four faces of the Divine Goddess/Feminine, has been showing us how to engage our Inner Divine Feminine Warrior – male and female alike – to BE compassion, to FEEL feelings, and allow our INTUITION to be seen, heard and/or felt! Think back over these past four years – how has your Inner Life changed from Ego-Self driven to intuitively, feelingly aware? Have you noticed changes in the workplace re: more compassion and assistance from what was there prior? Your home life? Your friends?

Both Nodes are Direct – so we were all focused on accomplishing something certain these past four years. The South Node sits almost exact with the Moon, in Gemini. Not only did we visit our past lives, we also brought forward data and information to be used NOW in new daily habits, intuitive awareness and feeling our way forward. Fears of doing any of this (those unresolved issues from the past) have been coupled with the North Node’s intention to seek our Higher Purpose (Sagittarius) AND marry our Inner Feminine with our Inner Masculine power (Juno) in a sacred marriage. Equal and balanced.

How well have your mastered your Ego-self’s fears thus far? To create an AND to also move forward towards your True Purpose/Mission this lifetime with awareness? Be honest – we are ALWAYS a work in progress. We are NOT 100% perfected yet, so ANY forward-moving progress is cause for HUGE celebration! AND, in the eyes of God, we are ALREADY PERFECT!

This chart shows a Grand Trine in Earth signs from Mars Rx (retrograde) in Virgo (where Jupiter and the North Node are Now in 2016!) and Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Taurus. Asserting our desire to BE of service and look after the health of our physical bodies (Mars in Virgo) with transforming power/control issues of integrity re: how we go about building our respective material gain (Pluto in Capricorn) with expansion and amplification of creating something solid, via our senses, that is beautiful and from our Truest Purpose (Jupiter in Taurus). Looking back these past four years – what has fallen away (died via Pluto), what has expanded beyond your prior boundaries (Jupiter pushing us past them), and how have you asserted your Inner Warrior, bringing forth that Pioneering self to BE your True Instinctual Self (Mars)?

Saturn sits Rx and at the 29th degree of the cardinal air sign of Libra – inner responsibilities, ending some cycle you’ve been in, that until now has interfered with allowing much-needed CHANGE to BE in partnership with yourself and others. Loving self and others more perhaps? Letting GO of the Old relationships/partnerships that no longer worked?

Lastly, the Vertex (Vx) point of destiny/fated happenings, in Sagittarius at the Galactic Centre! Interestingly, this point sends mini love lines to both Saturn @ 29 degrees Libra AND Neptune @ 00 degrees Pisces! We’ve been tying up loose ends/ending a cycle of NOT taking responsibility within our relationships/partnerships AND learning to connect with ourselves more Spiritually/Divinely, in a new way other than religiously! What fateful/destined people and/or circumstances have occurred in your life since February 2012 that have brought much-needed healing, letting go, making room for MORE inner love of self, love of others, and love to the Divine You?

Now let’s look at tomorrow’s Leap Day for 2016!LeapDay2016

Notice I used the same time of day – so the House cusps have the same degrees and signs in both charts. My intuition choose 3:00p MST – don’t ask me logically why. Again, we have a stellium of planets + the South Node in Pisces. Neptune and Chiron continue to dissolve and heal our wounds of separation AND teach us about letting go of the Old Age of Pisces Drama Triangle (victim/rescuer/persecutor or bully) roles that are of no use to us now. The South Node tells me we are still, collectively, resolving issues from our collect pasts about this. BE the victor – not the victim! The Ego-self just LOVES to do “o woe is me!” drama. Pisces rules our addictions and our collective society is addicted to DRAMA! See it on TV and in movies and books. Leave it all there. Take yourself OFF this Triangle and stand in Love and Acceptance, compassion and forgiveness, of Self and Others.

Jupiter Rx + North Node Direct stand in opposition to the Pisces stellium, asking us to expand ourselves beyond those restrictive boundaries we’ve held close for over 2,000 years, to BE of service beyond ourselves (our Ego) and to do so DOWN here on earth! To love our physical bodies as we relearn to love ourselves. The Rx energy personalizes everything, giving us a chance to slow down and think about it all, mull it over and sit with it a while before we take the Action forward destined by the North Node. The Vertex point is once again sitting at the Galactic Centre, bringing forth destined and fated events and people to us to help us move beyond where we now stand. Wonder where we will end up?

Both the Moon and Mars stand in Scorpio, the most private sign in the Zodiac, and a fixed water sign – ice. Mars asks us to Assert ourselves beyond any deeply-held emotional fears of our Ego-self (Scorpio) AND the Moon, sitting at 29 degrees of Scorpio, asks us to END a cycle of old habits re: those fears! Letting GO of OLD HABITS brings space to embrace NEW habits that support the NEW you emerging, despite your fears to do otherwise! Dig deeply to unearth each and every one. Scorpio helps us root it out! Each and every baby step forward with change and trust and faith – it ALL helps us to BE our truer more authentic selves!

Interestingly, the Aries stellium sends a connection to the Scorpio Mars/Moon position, giving us a constant prod to LET GO of old patterns of conditioning! Here Aries, our instinctual self-identity, contains Uranus (unexpected change to BE Free to BE ME!) + Eris shows us how to dispense with our wornout gender roles of the past + the Arabic Part of Fortune, our Joy point, beckons us to BE joyful, to embrace our respective uniqueness from one another AND within each other + Vesta asks us to concentrate our focus ON self, yet not at the exclusion of all others! All work and no play is not BALANCE! We are no longer an Island unto ourselves. We are Individuals living within Community (New Age of Aquarius).

This chart’s T-square figures on the Vertex/Galactic Centre from the Nodes + Jupiter and Chiron specifically. To HEAL our spiritiual disconnect AND expand our boundaries away from the same old/same old service we’ve allowed ourselves to BE stuck within! Bust out of your entrenched ruts about work! Where you work, what you DO for work, HOW you work! Mix it up! Feel your heart’s true desire and follow your intuitive creative hits of insight and TRUST that these new directions (NO MATTER YOUR AGE!!!!) will manifest your dreams (Neptune) and show you the new direction your Soul wishes you to walk into (North Node)!

Having the Vertex on the Galactic Centre tells me we are heeding a Higher Call from On High! Beyond our Galaxy. What IS your Higher Purpose this lifetime? Perhaps the upcoming Eclipses in March will remind you of what you signed up to DO and BE this lifetime? I will write that post soon enough.

Our minds (Mercury) and our Desire Body (Venus) and Inner Feminine Power Warrior (Pallas) all sit within the fixed air sign of Aquarius, the New Age we are in now. Allow your mind to connect with your Future Self, and your Desire Body to feel the CLEAR intentions of what you truly desire in your life, and bring forth the wonderful Inner Feminine Wisdom to receive those insights/signs, feel the intuitive urgings of your Soul/Higher Self, and walk into your Future. Now. It will be interesting to see what we bring forth these next four years!

BE In Love & Light!
