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

New Moon in Sagittarius: Seeking Spiritual Connection or Drama?

Tomorrow, Friday December 7th, 2018 at 12:20 am MST we experience the beginning of another Moon cycle – New Moon phase begins – when the Moon and Sun sit together at the same celestial coordinates of 15 degrees of Sagittarius 07′.

Saturn Turns Retrograde April 5 - August 25, 2017Sagittarius is our mutable fire sign – going with the flow – of INSPIRed creative action (in-spirit) – as we determine our INTENTIONS for this Moon cycle. The Arrow of the Sagittarius glyph signifies our Quest of Purpose: “Why am I here? What IS my purpose? What have I to offer in the outer world, beyond my locale?”

New Moon in Gemini: Connections & NegotiationsThe mutable sign of Gemini is the opposite sign to Sagittarius, signifying our locale – people we live with, interact with, grew up with (siblings, neighbours, long-time family friends) and the merchants/retail stores we visit on a regular basis. People who we speak with, locally.

This New Moon cycle, beginning tomorrow, brings us closer to the global connections of our respective worlds. What are you intending, as next steps, to be OUT in the larger world? Where are you headed? What are you wishing to learn?

IMG_9914Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter (also currently in Sagittarius!) and resides in the 9th House of WE SPEAK within the natural wheel of the zodiac. The themes for Sagittarius (as put forth by Jan Spiller’s New Moon Astrology) are:

  • Your Quest for Truth: searching for answers to answer “Why am I here? What’s my purpose?” via religion, praying/meditating via higher guidance, going to places of worship, being frank and honest, directly discussing your quest with others. Any or all of these come into play during this Moon cycle. Interesting that we will experience the most popular religious time of year – Christmas. How meaningful is this time of year for you – especially this year? What will you explore further, as your quest for truth?
  • Peace of Mind: found in Nature as you connect Without, to listen Within, for guidance from Above. Listen for and follow your intuitive knowing. What are the subtle whisperings from your Higher Self saying?
  • Travel/Freedom/Adventure: many people travel to warmer climes this time of year to embrace the Sun/warmth/solar fire, escaping the reality of -23 degrees C with the windchill mornings up here in Canada (or colder!). Spontaneity, seeking adventure, having positive expectations of the long-distance and perhaps foreign travel, to EXPLORE other cultures, religions, sacred spaces – to perhaps FIND or SEE Yourself mirrored there. “Why am I here? What’s my purpose?”
  • Legal Issues: Sagittarius rules attorneys, lawsuits, ethics, morality, conscience and court proceedings – anything to do with the Law of the Land. With Mercury about to  Station Direct at 27 degrees of Scorpio (yay! Mercury Rx is almost over!) Expect the Unexpected from planned events, previous discussions, misinterpreted conversations, and delays in usual straightforward motion and contracts. Revisit previously agreed-upon strategies – you may find items previously missed!
  • Faith & Optimism: there are times in our lives – usually around the holidays with family gatherings, to-ing and fro-ing the house/office parties – where our Faith can be tested – especially with thoughts of loved ones passed on, feeling lonely for their hugs, voices, laughter – missing the people who are no longer with us. And there is that generous spirit of giving, perhaps having the good luck to afford presents this year when in previous years, not so much. And gallantry – wherefore art thou? LOL! The optimism can also turn into wishful thinking/hoping – ensure you have a good dose of reality mixed into all of this…
  • Finding Solutions: through mentors who’ve been there done that before you, connecting with Higher Education institutions (colleges, universities) if your search for your Higher Truth takes you onto a different life path, seeking the philosophy that calls to your heart and soul as you seek the answers your soul/spirit quest. All in aid of finding the solutions to wherever it is YOU ARE NOW.
  • Overcoming Excess: here we encounter that over-optimistic faith that “If I buy this now, I’ll be able to pay off my credit card next year!” How many years has the consumerism in the larger world brought us to our knees as the colder January snows and temperatures show up? Watch out for shortcuts that end up creating worse scenarios, being self-righteous about ill-fated decisions, making assumptions, excesses and extravagance, blunt communication and Pollyanna approaches. BE TRUTHFUL as to your INSPIRed Actions – coming from your Soul/Spirit Self or Ego’s need to other than itself? These are the pitfalls of Jupiter/Sagittarius…
  • Physical Health Ruled by Sagittarius: hips, liver, sciatica, thighs and upper legs. These are the areas of the physical body that will ‘speak to you’ via pain, accidents, the need for exercise (vs. excess!) that will be carried forward into the New Year if we’re not looking at the bigger picture…take those walks, jog, ski, skate, dance, hike – do whatever it is you need to do – drink more water vs. spirits (!) – to flush those toxins out. Visit the people who can help you determine the Higher Truth of what may already be going sideways in your physical body. Why wait for 2019? DO IT NOW!

Scorpio Full Moon: Facing Our Fears of Worth + ValueThe Sabian Symbol (from The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle by Lynda Hill & Richard Hill) for this New Moon’s celestial longitude:

  • Symbol: SEAGULLS FLY AROUND A SHIP LOOKING FOR FOOD
  • Key Wisdom: This pictures a situation of dependence and sometimes co-dependence. Don’t look to others or have others look to you for opportunities and nourishment, for you may miss your chance of being creative and independent. Who’s looking for scraps? Are they worth it? Diminishing your essential worth while trying to please a specific need. LOSING SIGHT OF ALTERNATIVE POSSIBILITIES.
  • Shadow: Waiting for scraps that may not even be worth it or may not ever come.

In other words: LOOK for YOUR HIGHER PURPOSE – no one else will or can do it for you! Seek that which calls out from your heart of hearts. BE optimistic that yes, you WILL find that pot of gold at the end of your Life Path’s rainbow. And it won’t be found if you don’t MOVE yourself, TAKE ACTION, in some regard. Sagittarius mutable fire – go WITH the flow AND ensure it’s the flow YOU wish to go with! Not someone else’s! Heed your own Inner Call!

This New Moon (Sun + Moon) position will create some stress and tension, Within, from the help of Mars + Chiron, both within the mutable water sign of PISCES – our Spiritual connection. Mars wants to take assertive Action AND Chiron wishes to HEAL the pain and/or Drama you’ve been carrying Within (be it physically, emotionally, mentally and/or spiritually). Yes: GO WITH THE FLOW and SEEK YOUR SPIRITUAL HIGHER SELF / TRUTH / PURPOSE – in every Action, Prayer, Decision, Conversation, Book, Person, Video you encounter – between Friday December 7th and January 4th, 2019! Let go of the victim/rescue me/I feel persecuted or bullied roles of that Drama Triangle – step OFF this triangle by going Within, Seek your Higher Self, and Listen to your Heart. With Love, Faith & Optimism – look for the signs and symbols of this season to help you to Keep on Keeping On!

MERRY MERRY – Happy Christmas to One & All – Blessed BE – Namaste

Full Moon in Gemini: Clearing Old Patterns of Conditioning

Hi All!

cropped-gibbous2bmoon2bw2bjupiter2.jpgTonight’s Full Moon will occur at 10:39 pm MST at 00 degrees of Gemini 52′ celestial longitude.

New Moon in Gemini: Connections & NegotiationsGemini is our mutable AIR sign – going with the flow, allowing the information/data to come to you. Remember to also discern what is important, what is not AND to add your own ideas/thoughts into the mix.

Looking at the Full Moon chart, I see the following dynamic planetary patterns affecting all of us, as this Full Moon ILLUMINATES that which was hidden in the dark (unconscious to us) before now:

  • Venus (our Desire Body) in LIBRA: a wee bit of balancing/equality here between the Emotional Body (Moon in Gemini) and the Desire Body (Venus in Libra)! What is the difference between that which you DESIRE vs. that which you FEEL you need? Are the two in line with one another, or at odds? The connection between Venus & the Full Moon brings information AND opportunity to heal Old Patterns of Conditioning – to discern your true desires via your INTUITIVE INNER KNOWING – by learning to feel your way forward, intuitively, vs. MAKING THINGS HAPPEN, mentally (Gemini), sooner than they possibly should/could/need to be. Interesting test we’ve signed up for here…
  • YOD, Finger of God, pointing to VENUS in LIBRA: coming from the MOON in Gemini (Air) wishing to work with better ease and grace with CHIRON Rx (retrograde) in Pisces (Water). This is a dynamic, ongoing HEALING session between Chiron (representing any tendency to do emotional DRAMA) and our Emotional Body’s need now to think about how I feel/or feel about how I think (dilemma of having the Moon in an Air sign!) – in order to truly KNOW your Desires. The more we Let GO of Old Patterns of Conditioning of always connecting outwardly to others, by learning to go Within, meditate, connect with our True Inner Self – the more we’ll be in touch with that Inner Wisdom that is truly/clearly connected with our Desire Body. The Mental Body is the mind, ruled by the Ego-self, in need of safety, security and the need to KNOW. The Unknown scares the Ego-self – and the more we feel our way forward vs. always THINK our way forward, the more in tune we’ll BE about our True Desires….
  • Cardinal Grand Square: brings together the North Node in Cancer squaring Uranus & Eris in Aries squaring the South Node in Capricorn squaring Venus in Libra! Venus seems to be the key planet this Full Moon! A square dynamic brings forth much stress and tension to DO something NEW (all these signs are the Cardinal ones – initiating change/new directions). Therefore, 4 areas of your life will be asking you to DO CHANGE all at the same time! For our American neighbours, this Thanksgiving Day, a lot of family dynamics are in the works! The North Node beckons us into a New Direction re: how we relate to family, WITH sensitivity; while the South Node asks us to LET GO of Unresolved Issues of the Past – face them, deal with them, heal them – re: HOW important is building an empire to you, vs. being with your family? Hhhmmm…. And Venus/Libra brings balance/harmony while facing some much-needed self-HEALING (Chiron Rx), removing yourself from that Drama Triangle of: victimization/needing to be rescued/feeling bullied. STEP OFF this catch 22 role-playing and dive INTO your intuitive/feeling self – FORGIVE, LOVE & LAUGH & HUG.

a3c61-sagittariussymbolThe Sun entered the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius today too – sitting opposite this Full Moon. The Sun asks us to take ACTION by stating our True Intention of Next Steps forward re: our True Purpose, moving forward. Jupiter is assisting this position (and rules Sagittarius) so ride the wave of HUGE Opportunities/Possibilities AND keep your wits about you (Mercury Rx in Sag too!) while you decide/feel/intuit your way forward these next several days.

Stand on your Hill of NOW, look back over your journey so far this lifetime – where have you been? What have you learned? What more do you wish to experience? Then turn back to face your FUTURE SELF – see what new HILLS (opportunities) beckon you forward – which ones shine more brightly than the others?

FEEL your INTUITIVE Body, connect WITHIN, then ‘see’ your Next Steps clearly…and shoot your Arrow of INTENTION off into the bigger world! See what happens NEXT!

Namaste

New Moon in Libra: Balance, Love, Letting Go & Relating

Sept FULL MOON etc pics 042The New Moon began this latest Moon cycle Monday October 8th (Canada’s Thanksgiving Day) at 9:47 pm MDT at 15 degrees of Libra 48′ of celestial longitude.

Libra brings opportunity to re-balance your life.

The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon (from The Sabian Symbols and Oracle by Linda Hill & Richard Hill, 1995): “After A Storm, A Boat Landing Stands In Need of Reconstruction” – even situations built on solid foundations can be swept away by the tidal-wave forces of emotion. You may be feeling overpowered in this way. You will have to reconstruct some usually secure part of your life – you’re wiser and will in future build something stronger. Having ‘no-where to dock’ one’s emotions. Temporary Loss. Emotional Repair. If coming from the Shadow: making excuses instead of taking the necessary responsibility. Feeling emotionally swamped and powerless.

Interesting, this symbolism. Libra is our cardinal Air sign – initiating change mentally in how we relate, network, socialize one-on-one (vs. in a group), within our various partnerships – so where does the emotion come into play?!

AUG SEPT 2018 035The re-balancing to repair those emotions – looking back to January 1st, 2018 we experienced the Full Moon in Cancer – our cardinal water sign that is highly sensitive, moody, emotional – and Cancer sits in a square position to Libra within the natural wheel of the Zodiac. A squared angle brings forth stress and tension Within, which creates the NEED TO CHANGE – something – a perspective, action, personality trait, belief, thought process – whatever IT is…and we all know how HEALING it can be to allow deeply buried emotions to come up into the Light of day/the Moon (!) to look at it, feel it, heal/love it, and let it go. 10 months later – are you ready to do so?

Looking at the chart for this New Moon I see the following:

  • Pull Up & Out of Your Power & Control Issues: When did you give your power away and to whom? Pluto in Capricorn also squares this New Moon (Sun + Moon in Libra). Capricorn is that so-called solid earthly foundation and Pluto rules Scorpio, our fixed water sign of deeply-held passions, fears, emotions. Like the Phoenix, Pluto will do what it takes to get to the root of the problem, feel it, deal with it, then allow it all to die (as we let go of it), to then be REBORN more whole and conscious and renewed! Are you ready to root out/transform that deep-set emotion(s) (tidal-wave here we come!) that centre around emPOWERment of Self? Be it anger, fear, anxiety, sadness, shame, guilt, grief – whatever THE feeling or group of feelings are – open Pandora’s Box, see what needs to be seen/felt as the root cause, walk through the emotions and be reborn, anew.
  • Expand & Heal Beyond the Known: here we continue to have Jupiter in Scorpio + Chiron in Pisces, Rx (retrograde) sending a love line to each other. Move beyond what feels safe, trust the process, and heal yourself OFF that Drama Triangle merry-go-round of Victim-Rescue Me-I Feel Persecuted/Bullied role-playing (and are you bullying yourself?). Jupiter asks us to expand beyond known boundaries (are you hanging on tightly to your emotional blankie still?!) – LET IT GO – the fears, the anger, the tears, the self-abuse you’ve been unconscious about until now. Chiron shows where we’re hyper-sensitive to the pain and suffering of others around us AND hyper-sensitive to being REJECTED for dealing with that pain/suffering in our own unique way. Pisces brings this dilemma to the fore: do I take the High, Spiritual, Road OR do I keep going the way my Ego-self feels safe Within that Drama Triangle: o woe is me, I want to be rescued somehow (rather than pulling myself up out of the muck), and don’t bully me! Staying Within the KNOWN has its setbacks and challenges. It takes COURAGE to move out of KNOWN roles and habits (which the Moon cycles help us heal!) – away from our own pain and suffering.
  • Letting Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning: Neptune, also in Pisces, Rx, is angled with the New Moon team (Sun + Moon) in Libra whereby we NEED to let go of old patterns (habits) of conditioning – how do I commit to my Higher Self AND keep my relationship with my Ego-self (Little Self) AND create equilibrium, balance, peace and harmony between my Soul Self (Sun) + Emotional Body (Moon)? Here again, the fear of letting down your guard, lowering the walls of resistance (how we keep everything/one out of reach) vs. allowing that tsunami or tidal-wave to come up and out to finally HEAL those old patterns into a more compassionate, self-loving, patient You! Neptune rules Pisces – and we have the opportunity, now, to Imagine our own Garden of Eden to be realized down here on Earth. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, your abilities, your dreams, your needs and SOMETHING BETTER. Beyond the fears…
  • DESIRING PAST THE FEARS: Here Venus, our Desire Body, within Scorpio too (!) has turned Rx (retrograde) as of October 6th, creating a personalized/sensitized Inward-moving energy. Venus, that Mirror of Self, is now mirroring our deep-set FEARS that sit like HUGE monsters seemingly blocking our passage forward to those High-Minded Dreams, Desires, Needs etc. If your Desire is great enough to move forward DESPITE those fears, you will move past them, to see they were an illusion/delusion tactic your Ego-self devised to keep you small, safe and at a standstill. So many power & control scenarios this Moon cycle to overcome and transform INTO emPOWERment! Are you up for it?
  • Something Fated/Destined This Way Comes! Yes, the Vertex is at the same degree/sign as Venus Rx – in SCORPIO – signalling to all of us that it is TIME to deal with those monsters of fear that have held us back for far too long! Latch onto this opportunity for further Soul Evolution – during this Moon cycle – and know that we ALL are undergoing the same journey, for different reasons! We are NOT alone!

cropped-gibbous2bmoon2bw2bjupiter2.jpgNothing to fear here, is there? LOL! As the Light continues to wane from our daylight hours, the Darkness looms nearer and nearer. Samhain (All Hallows Eve or Halloween) signals the time of laughing at our fears, despite our beliefs otherwise. October 31st brings forth another opportunity to laugh at our fears, see beyond the physical, and FEEL our way through the darkest waters of our psyche.

We’ll be at the Last QTR Moon cycle that day too – Crisis of Consciousness – so be aware of what you are becoming conscious of this Moon cycle, emotionally (Moon) and mentally (Libra). Reason it out with close personal friends, find connections, then do your own work, Within. We have the greatest opportunity, now, to heal those old patterns of conditioning that hold us back from BEing the powerful, compassionate and loving BEings we truly ARE and always have been!

Namaste!

Full Moon in Aries: Warrior, Pioneer and/or Explorer?

We experienced the Full Moon in Aries (02 degrees Aries 00′ celestial longitude) Monday September 24th beginning at 8:52 pm MDT and were in the Full Moon phase until today as of 2:47 pm MDT.

Full Moon in Aries Sept 24 2018

Harvest Moon Sept 24, 2018

Full Moon is all about Illumination, AHA moments, shining a bright light upon a situation/circumstance occurring in your life that wasn’t quite clear up until this week. What became obvious for you?

Aries brings forth our Inner Warrior, riding to the rescue to take Action of some sort – initiating NEW change due to Aries being a cardinal fire sign – initiating something NEW in our lives that we’ve been neglecting until now. We will find that inner energy/fire to ACT upon instincts – no editing please! INSPIRed Action (In Spirit) coming from our spiritual self/higher self. We may not KNOW the WHY of what we MUST do at this time – somewhat like the Fool Card in Tarot. We’re about to take a journey into the Unknown…scary as that may seem to our wee Ego-self…it is TIME to

IMG_1533

Sheep River Pathway, Okotoks, AB

unearth that which we’ve been neglecting!

I say this – neglecting – because the Full Moon at 02 degrees of Aries 00′ activates our natal ERIS (sister to Mars) position in our charts/lives – for everyone born since March 10, 1925 until February 25, 1963! All of us Baby Boomers are being reminded, LOUDLY, of what we’ve been neglecting in our life that is key to Pioneer and/or Explore further – despite that element of the Unknown! We know not where this current journey will take us!

AND there is a deep HEALING occurring in this area we’ve neglected due to CHIRON sitting at 00 degrees of Aries 02′ Rx (retrograde) therefore making it PERSONAL – its energy draws inward, Within each of us, to heal how we’ve been editing our instinctual behaviors until now. Our Fear of being rejected for showing up, period. Wherever Aries is in your chart – here is where the AHA moment, with Healing, occurs.

What always amazes me is the TIMING of our planetary cycles – how each planet supports the upcoming cycle of another planet/luminary, on and on. We’re about to close another 19-month Venus Synodic cycle that BEGAN in ARIES! Here the Warrior Goddess has been assisting us to retool the energy of ARIES – removing the anger, bloodthirstiness and brutality – to replace it with Self-Love, Compassion, Standing Up for What we Truly Believe is RIGHT for the good of all – at this time.

IMG_1526

Sheep River, AB Canada

The Shadow side of Aries is “all about ME” attitudes – which is being played out right now between Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau and US President Trump. They forget what is for the Good of All in this tariff battle of words. Two boys in the sandbox – really?! Here the Ego-self shows itself OR we can choose to Pioneer a NEW inward path that we’ve not expressed/experienced before now – a personality expression that is softened, more loving and compassionate.

Which then leads to Exploration – of a new direction revealed in each of our lives, to SEE beyond the little self, to take action that supports beyond the individual, in time. The opposite sign is LIBRA (where the Sun now sits) beckoning us to bring back equilibrium, equality, justice, fairness, peace, harmony and LOVE – in partnership! Where’s the diplomacy, negotiation, and TRUth (!) PM TRUdeau/President TRUmp?

We have a few more hours of AHA moments to witness, face, and embrace before we enter the Disseminating Moon phase here early this afternoon. Look back at what has occurred this week, for you personally. What have you NEGLECTED in your life of late that is LOUDLY being presented for much-needed healing, now? BE HONEST with yourself, take time to heal, and take COURAGE as you Pioneer new ways of BEing Within yourself, while you Explore new directions that have opened up because you took that new/renewed action.

Namaste

Full Moon in Pisces: Spiritual Awakening, Heartfully…

Sunday, August 26th, 2018, at 5:56 a.m. MDT we begin the Full Moon phase of this Moon cycle. Here the ILLUMINATION of what we’ve been seeding/growing since the New Moon/Solar Eclipse of August 11th is revealed. Pisces is our theme this time – at 03 degrees Pisces 12′ of celestial longitude.

May 2018 photos 011AHA moments and grieving and sadness and crying and letting go emotionally has been experienced already this past week! Some of us knew the what/why of the letting go; most of us did not.

There has been a quality of Past Life release already too – of the accumulated drama of all the role-playing from the Old Age of Pisces lifetimes – victim and/or rescue me/rescuing others and/or feeling bullied/being the persecutor – we are clearing our Inner decks, so-to-speak, creating space for more of our Spiritual/Soul Self to shine through. Our True Authentic Self, in other words.

Other Pisces themes have been:

  • Increased dreams, intuitive insights, psychic abilities
  • Sensitivity around the spiritual needs of self and others
  • Wanting to BE of service beyond the Ego-self, within community
  • Bringing in more of the Spiritual High Mind (‘win-win for All’ wisdom)
  • Increasing your Spiritual Practice via meditation, looking Within to connect with your Higher Self/Future Self, guides, angels, ascended masters, being in Nature
  • Magical Moments of connections, conversations & activities with Soul Family, signs/insights, animal totem/angel supports.

Some of the Shadow aspects of Pisces have been:

  • Escapism – watching more TV/movies to escape your current reality and/or reading fiction – when you actually needed to be dealing with your reality….
  • Addictions – increased need to distract yourself through whatever means necessary, especially through substances/activities that our Ego-self relies on to pretend the current reality isn’t really happening, if I distract myself well enough it will all go away, magically….
  • Sleeping more OR less – here we’ve needed to process the letting go OR our Ego-brain is freaked out by the upcoming Illumination/AHA moments of consciousness, so it’s been keeping us away to avoid processing/releasing….
  • Drama Triangle Dramatics – yes, our Ego-self loves drama and staying in the Victim-oriented mindset at all costs! OR move outside itself to Rescue someone else’s Victim needs. That feels better, eh? I won’t notice how victim-oriented I am by helping you out! OR interfering in someone else’s life brings out the bullying, feeling persecuted, so we scurry back into Victim thinking/acting/being…and it continues over and over and over…

7b7df-nose2bhill2blabyrinth2b2016The KEY to overcoming our placement on that Drama Triangle is to meditate, connect Within to our True Authentic Self – aka Higher Self/Future Self – into that silence that goes deeper and quieter – to connect with the Source of All – and hear/feel our true Desires via intuition, feelings and Inner Wisdom/knowing. In order to do so, you need to BE vs. DO. Enjoy Nature, reflect, listen to your Inner Wise Woman/Man self. Ask for guidance, then listen for the answers. THEN do the doing action!

The North Node is still in Leo and sends a connection to this Full Moon in Pisces that calls us to Let Go of Old Outmoded Patterns of Conditioning – what’s left over from the Yod, Finger of God, of the New Moon/Solar Eclipse of August 11th. As we listen to our Heart of Hearts, and connect heartfully with our Inner Wisdom/spiritual self, we clear the blockages To/From our Heart Chakras AND our ability to connect Within, spiritually.

Interestingly, there is a new Yod, Finger of God, that is pointing to the Sun in Virgo (whose Light is being reflected back via the Full Moon in Pisces). Here are the other 2 planetary lines in play, of Letting Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning, namely:

  • Chiron, Rx (retrograde) in Aries: initiating change AND healing how we do Aries – with Wisdom, instinctual and in the moment, being our own Inner Warrior to take ACTION forward in some regard – AS A LEAP OF FAITH! Huge folks – this is huge! Ego-self dislikes the UNKNOWN – wants to control all situations/events/outcomes as much as possible! Chiron heals our Ego-self’s fear of being rejected by others for taking that leap that is NOT logical, could be out of the blue, and “what are you thinking?!!!” Here we learn that leaping before TOO MUCH thought can be a great thing – it brings us closer to our True Heart’s Desire – on our Spiritual Path forward (North Node in Leo!). Aries brings forth our Inner Pioneer and Explorer – curious enough to experience something brand new! Within and Without!
  • South Node in Aquarius! Ha! Unresolved issued from the Past/past lives….here we go! How well are you BEing your true authentic self these days? Aquarius is the New Age (Leo is it’s opposite sign! Trying to create an AND here folks!) where we are learning to BE that authentic self AND connect with community for the good of all. I help you, you help me, I help you…being there for one another, not matter who you are, what it is you need “I’ll be there….” Humanitarianism, following your true Inner needs, without IGNORING others’ needs along the way. Building community – how well do you know your neighbours? What groups do you belong to? South Node also brings forth past skills/talents we’ve honed over other life-times – able to be unemotionally involved (some might call this aloof) matter-of-fact, let’s get on with the show folks! Community needs our help – help them! Bring your future-oriented skills/ideas of innovation/invention and create something for the better!

How well are you able to take that Leap of Faith, heal unresolved issues from your past re: HOW you do community while Being Authentically You, while BEing innovative and inventive? Interesting challenge here….

3055e-march2b20182bphotos2b015As we work out this Yod to the Sun in Virgo (watch out for those PERFECTIONISM tendencies – delaying tactics of the Ego-self to try to prevent any timely Leaps of Faith, eh?!) the Sun’s reflected Light by the Full Moon in Pisces reminds us to lean on our Spiritual Self vs. our addictions/escapist habits of the past. Time to LET THEM GO too…bit by bit.

The Moon represents our Emotional Body, and those daily habits we become attached to, emotionally. What’s your crutch? How sturdy is it – or is it really just an illusion/delusion the Ego-self has convinced you that you cannot live without? Interesting dilemma here – which way do I go, and when? How much longer must I prolong the agony?

Go Within, always, then listen to that Wise Voice of your Soul/Spirit, and follow intuitive nudges and ideas and TRUST you’re heading into the Unknown that is your true north!

Namaste.

New Moon in Scorpio – Healing Emotional Depths!

Today, November 18, 2017, at 4:42 a.m. MST, the Sun and Moon, together, created the New Moon phase at 26 degrees of Scorpio 19′ – and began a new Moon cycle within fixed water (ice) – Scorpio – our most private sign of the Zodiac!

Okotoks, AB Nov 2017

This New Moon position (where the Sun + Moon reside within Scorpio) is connected with Chiron Rx (retrograde) at 26 degrees of Pisces 27′, to lovingly HEAL more of the wounds we’re collectively holding onto, emotionally, from the Old Age of Pisces. When planets are Rx the energy is directed inward, Within the Self, personalizing (as in bringing us face-to-face) with where, in this scenario of Chiron in Pisces, we’re still playing the old Drama Triangle roles of either:

  • Victim/victimization
  • Rescuer/Rescue Me
  • Bully/Persecutor
Or a combination of any/all three roles! Be aware of where you continue to harbour deep-set fears (Scorpio) that keep you in any one of, or all of, these roles from the Drama Triangle! This current Moon cycle brings forth further conscious emotional awareness for each of us. Anger is buried fear. Projection is manipulation, trying to make your fears someone else’s. Fear is an illusion the Ego brings forth, tricking us to believe our world is being threatened from Without in some regard. Is it, truly? What does this trigger reaction truly mean for you?
Scorpio rules the following themes:
  • Power and Control Issues – here the Ego-self hides and resides, doggedly clinging to keep the status quo – safe and secure within the illusion of NO change, leave things as they are, no need to rock the boat people! Ego’s deep-seated fears of everything that threatens (seemingly) Ego’s view of how life should be. The key here is to move from power and control into Empowerment! We learn this through the process of attracting people, situations, circumstances and relationships that bring up and out of us that which we still FEEL the need to control – no matter what! Look closely to ‘see’ what is being triggered Within, emotionally, that causes emotional upsets, fear, the need to Fight or take Flight (escape, run away, hide). 
  • I find it fascinating that some of the JFK assassination files have recently been released – long held secrets buried for over 50 years. Jupiter is in Scorpio for the next year, expanding our current tightly-held boundaries created out of fear, power and control needs, to allow each of us the opportunity let go of our long-held secrets! I wonder what else will be revealed? No matter how manipulative President Trump is currently being by putting off the release of ALL documents until early 2018, Jupiter will bring forth the call for change, loud and clear.
  • Fear of Change – I’ve already addressed this. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and he is the ruler of this Moon cycle. Pluto is at 17 degrees of Capricorn 29′ holding hands with Ceres at 19 degrees of Capricorn 30′ – together they bring forth the transformation (Pluto) of how we nurture self then others (Ceres) – did we learn it via power and control struggles from our parents and siblings? Can we change HOW we do change now, via EMPOWERMENT instead? Create a win-win for ALL involved? Forgiveness, of self and others, is key. Compassion is required too – of self and others. We each are doing the BEST we possibly can, at ANY given moment in time! Less judgement and criticism; MORE love, acceptance and forgiveness is required now.
  • Skills to use during Crisis situations –  here’s where our compulsions and obsessions come out to play! Living on the edge, extreme risks to gain power (of any kind). Okay to use when in a REAL crisis (life or death) however, these days, our Ego-self seems to believe it is in CONSTANT crisis, hence the compulsion/obsession within society with the need for power (see the Bully and/or Persecutor role playing out here?) at any cost. Drink as much caffeine-oriented beverages as you can to keep yourself revved up and “on edge” is one extreme example. Ready for combat sir! – are you in the army or navy or air force? Daily? Truly? This is one way our Ego-self brings forth the Illusion of the need for MORE power. Consciously or unconsciously…
  • Self-Mastery –  of the Ego-self, to bring forth MORE of the Higher Self/Divine Self as the guiding Light Within. Here’s where more time spent in meditation, listening to your intuitive INsights, which in turn brings guidance to your True Best Next Steps, for You! The Ego-self will bring forth all sorts of reasons, excuses, fears, escapism, to prevent us from connecting Within to our Inner Wisdom – we each have access to this – that guiding Light of Wisdom. That Inner Voice that speaks to us when we feel lost, hurt, abandoned – you name it – the voice of reason, reassurance, love. Go ahead, listen to the Ego-self, follow the illusory road, OR have the inner strength to follow your intuitive Inner Wise Woman/Man, heartfully trusting in another way through the current crisis.
  • Soul Mates and our Sexual Desires/Needs – here we feel our deepest emotional passions, needs, connections and FEARS of all of these! Scorpio is where we deeply connect with others within our life. We absorb each other on deep emotional levels – so much so we may lose ourselves completely. Co-dependence issues. Possible power and control issues, again. I’ll be rescued by so-and-so if I only….here is yet another avenue we experience the empowerment of ME within the WE relationships. How well do you DO this?
  • Shared Financial Partnerships – be they personal and/or business – shared money, resources and values. What each partner brings to the table within the relationship of partnership. Is it an equal connection or does one person hold the upper hand? How can you create a win-win here for the good of all? EMPOWERMENT…and again, triggers occur from the fear of money (lack consciousness) – where’s the ROOT of this coming from?
  • Misuse of Power – aka revenge, jealousy, harsh judgments, destructive urges (our addictions/obsessions) power struggles, suspicion and deep-seated feelings of guilt. All Shadow issues to true Empowerment. Trust issues abound with Scorpio. Trust in self, and in others. Being honest Within Self = being honest with Others. It all begins Within You.
  • Physically, Scorpio rules – all our hidden places – rectum, colon, bladder, and organs of elimination, PMS and menstruation, sexual diseases and the male/female sexual organs. Here is where our deeply and long-held fears may manifest long-term, chronic illness and/or ailments, over time. If we take a look at the bigger picture, socially, we see how much of the current illness out in the world relates back to these areas of the body. All due to fear of being powerless in some regard, deep Within. Hhhmmm…Scorpio IS the most private sign of the zodiac, ice water. Here we can ‘freeze’ those feelings, emotions and fears at the time of crisis or trauma triggered events – and never go back to deal/heal them! Or, we can change all that, open the box or vault we’ve hidden them in, and begin to heal (remember, Chiron is already here, lovingly awaiting to assist you with this!).
The chart for this New Moon cycle holds TWO of the following planetary formations:
  • Grand Trines: in Water and Fire – emotional + intuitive INsights easily accessed AND inspired creative Action. Ease and flow come about within a trine. Listen to your intuitive hits of INsight that, in turn, manifest the INspired creative (as in ‘out-of-the-box’) action of your Next Steps! Be aware of wallowing within the emotional loop! Be aware of always taking action without checking Within when to stop, listen, take stock, before further action!
  • Grand Squares: in the Cardinal and Fixed signs. Cardinal means initiating the NEW, bringing for Change! Fixed means dealing with all the details AND let go of the rigid fears to change along the way! “My way or the highway” feelings/mindsets will stall your forward motion. Stress and tension come about within squares. The louder it feels, the greater chance you’ll have of consciously revealing and dealing WITH the Ego-self’s resistance to CHANGE! NOTE: both the Sun and Moon (as New Moon) create the Scorpio portion of this Grand Fixed Square! It all stems from there…see where Scorpio resides in your chart – here’s the probable ROOT to your Ego-self fears of change…
Crow’s Nest, Okotoks, AB 2017
And the upcoming Mercury Rx timing (I’ll write about this in another post) within Sagittarius brings forth yet another element of change in mindset whilst looking for our Higher Purpose during the emotional deep-water diving we’ll be experiencing this Moon cycle! Here is the key to coping with all the emotional/fear stuff – keep asking yourself, “What IS the Higher Purpose with this issue for me? What IS my Higher Purpose within this process of Empowerment, Change and Letting Go? What IS my Ego-self’s NEED for power and control truly covering? How do I get to the ROOT of it?”
Ask for Higher Guidance. Listen to your feelings and your intuition. Jupiter in Scorpio brings BOTH into extreme focus, LOUD and CLEAR, and in-your-face over this next year. This Moon cycle jump-starts us all into clearing out our blockages. You are NOT alone! We are in this together!
Blessed BE! Namaste!
