Full Moon in Cancer: Spotlight on Initiating Caring & Nurturing Cycle

Today’s Full Moon begins at 10:50am MST with the Moon + Sun sitting opposite each other at the celestial longitude of 00 degrees of Cancer 50′ / 00 degrees of Capricorn 50′, respectively.

IMG_176400 degrees of a Cardinal sign means the beginning of a New Cycle. The Moon represents our Emotional Body, daily habits, following our intuition, listening and responding to our emotions/feelings, and how we nurture all of this. The Sacred Feminine attributes.

The Moon rules Cancer, therefore this Full Moon in Cancer is MORE of all of the above. Loud and clear.

The Sun represents our Soul self, the vital and active principal of how we DO our BEing. Here our Sacred Masculine attributes are in play. Spiritual inSPIRed action, as we follow our intuition and feel our feelings – what heartfully DO you want for YOU?

Each Full Moon brings ILLUMINATION – a spotlight turned on Within self as we become conscious of what it is our Soul Self (Sun) wishes us to know and BE more. The Full Moon reflects the unconscious desires of our Soul every Full Moon. What have you been Unconscious of Within that you are now Conscious of?

Interestingly, we began 2018 with the Supermoon Full Moon in Cancer at 11 degrees Cancer 38′ of celestial longitude. During 2018 (an 11 or Master Number year for all of us) we’ve been forced into the Illumination of Caring & Nurturing – for self and others – ALL YEAR LONG. Have you been listening to your Inner Self’s needs? What action have you taken in 2018 as a result?

IMG_2366And now, almost full circle, we have a unique opportunity to REVIEW 2018 under a more sensitive, caring, feeling and intuitive lens. Where were you, Emotionally and Soulfully, January 1st? What have you experienced this year within that spotlight of Consciousness? How conscious were you, truly, listening to your Emotional Body’s needs? Following your intuitive hits of insights, seeing the symbols and symbolism from Nature, coincidental occurrences and so-called random encounters with new relationships, partnerships and affiliations?

All year, throughout 2018, we’ve been operating, Emotionally, under the spotlight of our Soul’s Unconscious Desires to BE nurtured, cared for, loved, with compassion, forgiveness and true empathy. Can you ‘see’ now, as you look back over this year, how the happenings and experiences within your life has all been in aid of letting go of that hard outer shell of protectionism, to ‘see’ your Soul’s true desire – to Love and Be Loved – just as you already are?

Waiting for Santa Dec 12th

Our family has experienced the death of 2 close family members and 2 close friends this year. Within the last 5 years I have lost a parent, 2 sets of aunts/uncles, a favourite aunt, 2 close friends who were like sisters to me, and recently, a sister. I have moved from Nanaimo, to Calgary and now to Okotoks. I have released working for others to now administrate and steer my own Astrology business 100%. I have made many new connections and friends and partnerships that ebbed and flowed this year. And no matter that I haven’t physically seen my friends on Vancouver Island these past 5 years – we are connected, always and in All Ways. Just as I am still connected with all of my loved ones who have passed over. They visit from time to time to remind me how much I am loved and beloved.

The key review for me is after all the caregiving for others these past 5 years – it truly is TIME to turn the spotlight of caring, nurturing and following my feelings, intuition and insights ON ME. The self-nurturance piece is what we all need to embrace. This is what the Full Moon in Cancer that began 2018, and this current one ending 2018, have been, and are, reminding all of us. BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE. Emotionally embrace your Soul’s Unconscious Desires to this end!

The Sabian Symbol (from: The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle, by Lynda Hill & Richard Hill, 1995) for today’s Full Moon in Cancer is:

  • ON A SHIP THE SAILORS LOWER AN OLD FLAG AND RAISE A NEW ONE
  • Key symbolism: This marks a real turning point. There needs to be a symbolic gesture or expression of the change of allegiance. Although this may be a decision of the collective, each individual can gain glory in the action. Changing one’s loyalties. Coming to a turning point in one’s obligations or duties. Announcing new standards.
  • Shadow: Too quick to reject the old just for the sake of change. Fickleness.

Look Within, as you stand in your spotlight, review where you were January 1st, what you’ve experienced, felt, and embraced throughout 2018. Now ‘see’ and feel where you are today. What allegiances have changed Within you? Those obligations/duties – has there been a turning point? What are your new standards – for you – and how are you announcing them to others in your life?

IMG_1579More importantly: how have the changes, decisions and experiences brought forth SOULfull change vs. Ego-Self change? Ahhhhh…..yes….are you truly loyal to your Soul’s Unconscious Desires yet? Take time these next several days, within this Full Moon phase, to truly BE with yourself, DO what you truly DESIRE to do, for you. SEE what 2018 has been wishing for you all along.

Namaste & Happy Solstice & Merry Christmas!

Mercury Rx: Seeker of Fears or Fearful Seeking?

We’ve been in the Pre-Mercury Rx (retrograde) Shadow timing since October 28th, when Mercury, moving Direct, entered 13 degrees of Scorpio 18′ of celestial longitude.

143The actual Mercury Rx timing? November 17th until December 4th as Mercury Stations Rx at 13 degrees of Sagittarius 29′ to go back over ground he already covered, Directly, since October 28th! Which means we have a chance for a do-over – of conversations, decisions, thoughts, deeds – a chance to say what we truly meant but feared to say, or a chance to explain in more depth (especially when Mercury returns back into Scorpio!) what we truly felt.

I love Mercury Rx because of all of the following:

  • People from our past show up – they find us on FB or Instagram – to reconnect, complete unfinished business, rekindle a relationship – whatever it is, it will be timely.
  • Expect the Unexpected AND information you didn’t know you needed to know! It makes me laugh as I look for this each Mercury Rx period (this includes the pre/post Shadow timings too!). And yes, those twists and turns of unexpected change – to plans, conversations, computer glitches (in the office/vehicle/phone), thoughts – trouble-shooting ideas abound that didn’t surface before now.
  • Great time to re-organize! Closets, drawers, garages, offices, rooms – move that furniture around into a new grouping – go for it! See how creative and outside-the-box your thoughts go! Allow it! Go for it! I already said that, didn’t I? You’ll find it easier now to decide on what goes where.
  • Double/Triple-Check Contracts – be they legal, for real estate, work-related, a new Will or Living Will – anything that could/may bite you in the bum weeks, months, even years down the road. This is where Mercury Rx can be the Gift that Keeps on Giving – in a not so jovial way –  down the road. I kid you not – I have stories to tell…forewarned is forearmed…ensure everything is IN THERE – and read it ALL yourself – don’t assume it has been done and dusted as requested. Check all the i’s and t’s…
  • Mercury is taking a logic vacation – and is now hiding out in your Right Brain of creativity, fun & play, being jovial and less Type A, eh? Take advantage of this while Mercury plays in Sagittarius – expanding your mind to seek your higher purpose – why am I here? What IS IT I am supposed to be doing at this time of life? Where will I travel to next in the world?
  • When Mercury Rx returns to Scorpio – well I lied there a bit didn’t I? Yes with the current New Moon beginning in Scorpio, and now Mercury will go back into Scorpio too (as of November 30-December 12th) – therefore expect those deeply darkly thoughts / fears from the Ego-self to surface up from the deep-seated emotional waters of your Emotional Body – there’s a reason, a season and a happenstance here folks! Look for the clues, the secrets that were hiding there all this time – time to be MINDFUL of what your Inner Talk is doing to you, Mentally, and Emotionally! Time to clean house – mentally/emotionally – while Jupiter helps us move our Physical Bodies more! Cool planetary collective we have going here!

Sunrise2While Mercury is in Sagittarius – we’ll be mindfully seeking our purpose and truth for why we are here. Philosophically, in conversation, writing, speaking, connecting via social media – why ARE you here? ARE YOU TRUTHFULLY FULFILLING YOUR PURPOSE? Lots to mull over – and chat about with others. Religious conversations, spiritual conversations, esoteric ones too. Those BIG QUESTIONS that require DEEP ANSWERS – which is where Scorpio comes in – to dive deeply to ROOT CAUSES of fears, avoidance, denials, secrets – whatever research/investigation you need to do – do it. Could be a genealogy piece here too, come to think of it! Is it a family secret that comes up out of the blue, Unexpectedly? Hhhhhmmmm….

Don’t Worry – Be Happy! LOL! Enjoy the ride! The POST-Mercury Rx Shadow timing will take us right up to Christmas Eve – yes, December 24th – so keep track of your receipts, all that spending – try to keep it from being excessive! Both Mercury Rx + Jupiter entering Sagittarius – there can be excessive spending, eating, gambling, doing, traveling – so know that you need to keep an eye on all of this while Making Merry!

Enjoy!

Namaste

New Moon in Scorpio: Initiate Destined/Fated Spiritual & Psychological Changes

Today at 9:02 am MST the Moon (our Emotional Body) and Sun (our Vital/Soul Body) stood together in the sky to begin a new Moon cycle via the New Moon phase – at 15 degrees of Scorpio 11′ celestial longitude.

The position of this Moon/Sun position in Scorpio 278 connects with Neptune, Rx (retrograde) in Pisces (our Spiritual Body) and the Vertex – something Fated/Destined this way comes…in Cancer, creating a Grand Trine in the astrological Water signs – highly Emotional and Intuitive to receive the signs, symbols and INsights of Emotional/Spiritual Body changes. A trine connection is a loving one – helping all three positions to work together in unison.

Earlier today I wrote the post about the current Nodal Sign Change (North Node moved into Cancer – cardinal water – ruled by the Moon! South Node moved into Capricorn – cardinal earth – ruled by Saturn) – and this North Node (direction our Soul wishes us to move forward into) in Cancer is connected with Chiron (healing our energetic boundaries/wounds with one another) in Pisces (Spiritual Body) – significant HEALING of the Emotional/Spiritual Bodies coming up in this Moon cycle. Swim Up to your Spiritual Body whilst feeling/intuiting from your Emotional Body – connect the two to initiate timely and necessary change.

Total Solar Eclipse/New Moon in LEO - August 21, 2017The Moon/Sun’s position in Scorpio is also assisted by Pluto’s position in Capricorn – Life, Death & Rebirth process – to EMPOWER Within ourselves, with Integrity, via practical hands-on earthly goals, despite deep-seated emotional fears (Scorpio) that have prevented us from moving forward before now.

The fixed water of Scorpio (most PRIVATE sign of the Zodiac, ruling the 8th House of Life Experience in the birth chart) brings forth the following themes to be worked with this Moon cycle (until December 6th, 2018) as per Jan Spiller’s New Moon Astrology wisdom:

  • EMPOWERMENT: how we deal with secrets (our own and others); being aware of the needs and motives of others – and how you use your power with them; politics (interesting the half-way point elections were held last night in the US with the Moon in the Balsamic Moon phase – its citizens letting go of past fears and moved forward with gains/losses – especially the women in Congress!); Psychological Health – like I said, move through deeply seated fears/emotions (Scorpio) that block your way forward. And Charisma – what are you attracting to yourself, Emotionally?
  • Change/Transcendence: Transforming old emotional “baggage”, creating much-needed Change, bringing Restoration and Forgiveness – Within and Without – if you so choose!
  • CRISIS SKILLS: here we learn to take those risks to gain power/empowerment; dealing with our compulsions to control/manipulate people/situations for our benefit alone (where’s the Win-Win in that?); Obsessions – again, emotional sabotage, the need for power and control over others/situations; Intense emotional interactions; living on the edge – do you really need to go to extremes to FEEL alive?
  • SELF-MASTERY: how we do Good vs. Evil in our lives; bringing forth emotional Strength to keep on keeping on; having the Self-discipline to change current daily habits that support self-care/psychological well-being (mental health) and anything excessive (addictions); Committing to the success of something outside or Within self; our Depth of Character – what truly goes on Within you to the deepest levels of your Soul? Are you conscious of it? Do you allow others to see this part of you?
  • SEX/SOULMATES: here is where we do the intimate bonding – our sexual drives, how we absorb the deep emotional passionate connections; connecting to Soul Mates (not necessarily a sexual/romantic thing); showing mutual validation for BEing who we truly are – no longer HIDING from self, let alone a significant other.
  • FINANCIAL PARTNERSHIPS: here is the arena of loans, taxes, debts, grants, wills and inheritances, contracts and business. Shared money, values, and resources with significant others, government, banks, creditors etc. How are you honouring any or all of this?
  • MISUSE OF POWER: via revenge, jealousy, harsh judgments, destructive urges (self-flagellation/destructive habits), power struggles, abandonment issues, being suspicious of other’s motives, and guilt. Forgiveness and Love with Compassion come into play here – to heal, let go, and move on. To create win-win outcomes for all involved – no matter how impossible it looks now, at New Moon – know that this too can pass and be healed. “I Love You, I’m sorry, Please Forgive Me, Thank You”
  • Restoring Physical Health in these areas of your body: rectum, colon, bladder and organs of elimination; PMS and menstruation/Menopause; Sexual dis-ease; Sexual organs, male and female. Any of these areas, ruled by Scorpio, can be revealed as healthy or otherwise during the timing of the Moon + Sun doing their dance together within Scorpio. That which was hidden may be revealed…to be healed this Moon cycle.

The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon (at 16 degrees of Scorpio, rounding up) using The Sabian Symbol as an Oracle by Lynda Hill & Richard Hill:

  • SYMBOL: A Girl’s Face Breaking Into a Smile”
  • Key Info: You may feel the simple sense of your inner happiness shining through. But this is more than just an expression of pleasure or joy, it is the expression of your ability to choose between happiness and unhappiness and then choosing to express it.
  • Key Phrase: Drawing others to you through your willingness to relate.
  • Shadow aspect: False happiness to satisfy others’ needs. Lack of sincerity. Breaking up rigidity of responses.
e3b7c-balloons2band2borbs

Orbs over Valley of the Kings, 2011

“Don’t worry, BE happy!” in other words. Or drag yourself ever deeper into the abyss of pain, sadness, depression and so on…the choice is yours. Give yourself permission to FEEL the joy and happiness, the Inner Passion of YOU – despite what ever else is going on in your life. Yes, there is death and the dying. Within and Without – this doesn’t mean you have to go down with it, to the “depths of despair” as Anne Shirley describes in the timeless book, Anne of Green Gables.

Allow the feelings to be felt, the power struggles to surface, the fears of the Ego-self to be seen and heard – and LET GO of that which no longer supports where you are at with self-love, self-acceptance, self-nurturance, self-worth, self-esteem, self-confidence et al.

A perfect time to delve into counseling sessions with someone you trust, have an in-depth reading with a trusted astrologer/medium/psychic in your area – to look under the hood of what you’ve been hiding from, emotionally. Coupled with the current Nodal Sign Change into Cancer (cardinal water sign of initiating change Within the Emotional Body) whereby the North/South Nodes are creating a Cardinal Grand Square with Uranus Rx in Aries + Venus Rx in Libra – creating mucho stress and tension Within to CHANGE daily habits of HOW you deal with yourself, Emotionally!

Oct 2018 Pics 032Uranus brings Unexpected Change for independence (Aries), and Venus brings forth our true Desires for close one-on-one relationships/partnerships (aka marriage for some  Libra). All cardinal signs initiate change just as they initiate change of weather via the seasons. How are you weathering your Inner Emotional nature? What struggles are you undergoing with your Ego-self for power and control vs. empowerment? Let Go, surrender, and embrace the deep-seated feelings/emotions and thoughts and self-talk and whatever else is surfacing as the season of dying/death and darkness creeps along.

The ruler of this New Moon in Scorpio is PLUTO, who is sending mini love messages during this Moon cycle to EMPOWER yourself by trusting your own motives/intuition/feelings, moving forward through these current dark waters into the Unknown. You will ‘see’ yourself renewed on the other side as you surrender to all that needs to die Within self. Love yourself through this whilst creating NEW daily habits of self-love/nurturance/acceptance along the way!

Moon’s Nodes Shift into Cancer / Capricorn – Emotional Change

The last time we experienced the North Node North Node  moving into cardinal water Cancer & the South Node South Node moving into cardinal earth Capricorn: April 9, 2000 through to October 13, 2001.

May June July 2018 023Where were you back then? What were your dreams, goals and emotional needs at that time? How solid was your financial foundation? What were your career goals? How well did you listen to your feelings/intuition then, being guided to change your Emotional Body’s daily habits?

The Nodal Sign Change, now, began November 6, 2018 at 11:09 am MST and lasts until May 5, 2020. Where are you at, NOW, with whatever you started/initiated that brought emotional change into your life in 2000/2001? Are you BEGINNING all over again, now or just in need of tweaking significant habits?

What House in your birth chart do 29 degrees of Cancer and Capricorn reside? Unlike the planets and luminaries, the Moon’s Nodes travel in a Retrograde manner, changing signs and entering the new sign from the END of that sign (hence 29 degrees) until they move through all 30 degrees, reaching 00 degrees of that sign 18 months later. The activated Houses of Life Experience, by the Moon’s Nodes, will give you the Key of WHERE these Life changes occurred for you back then – and are activating your Life now.

The element of Water in Astrology brings forth a connection with our Emotional Body (ruled by the Moon), intuition, ability to receive – insights, intuitive hits, signs and symbolism. Embracing and spending time WITH the emotions/feelings that surface Within vs. ignoring, escaping from, being in denial of having. Dealing with energetic boundaries, being SENSITIVE to the feelings/trauma of those you interact with.

AUG SEPT 2018 030The Water of Cancer 255  (ruled by the Moon) is represented by the Crab and IS water  – tears, rivers, lakes, oceans, rain, the water we drink, shower and wash with – the clarity, cleansing and releasing that comes with this amazingly nourishing and life-giving element. Our moods, how we connect emotionally with ourselves, family and those we consider to be ‘family’. Cancer, as the Crab, has the tendency to “exit stage right” and/or dig themselves deeply in the sand to avoid confrontation – Within or Without! What did you ignore Within back in 2000/2001 that requires your attention now?

The element of Earth in Astrology is our connection to Earth, being grounded here Within your Physical Body, dealing with practicalities of Life in a hands-on way. The Earth of Capricorn is the most dense and slowest-moving (ruled by Saturn) – long-term goals to reach for.

Represented by the Mountain Goat capricornsymbol Capricorn is where we use the current resources at hand to create something NEW to be shared with the collective, now. I consider the Beaver and its ability to use current resources (trees) to create and anchor its home (in a combo of earth and water) to be an example of this. The Mountain Goat looks upon her/his ‘mountain’ via trails/trials of upward movement. There will be periods of “hitting a plateau” whereby Upward movement is replaced by stagnancy and stillness. Be wary of lingering too long here – without Goals to achieve in your life (be they Career-related, business-related, empire-building-related) how do you know WHERE you are heading? And yes, it’s not the DESTINATION that is important – it is the PROCESS of what you undertake, experience and express Within that brings forth the fruits Without.

According to Elizabeth Spring’s North Node Astrology, the North Node in Cancer/South Node in Capricorn brings forth the following to consider and experience change from now:

  • Soul Purpose: It’s important for you to heal from duty and necessity –  you may need to cry a few tears to unblock your emotions and express your true feelings. You may also want to make it a priority to give and receive love, and to watch what happens when you tend to the process of Life rather than the goal. Dare to risk new beginnings that lead to metaphorical death, re-birth and resurrection, taking calculated risks. Use your sense of humour to repair, entertain, and mend bridges between family and friends.
  • The Soul Purpose is represented by the North Node – the direction our Soul wishes us to head into, experience and grow and mature from. This direction is not one we are all comfortable with – hence the Soul Growth – moving through resistance to change.
  • Shadow: Honouring the demands of “sheer practicality” can be an excuse to both be in touch with your feelings of sorrow or joy. By not allowing the feminine and “lunar or looney” side of your personality out, it can make you appear to be a bit of a glum “Eeyore” at times. Another defense mechanism you might be tempted to use could simply be an appearance of pride – the kind of “Hubris that cometh before a fall.”
  • The Shadow is represented by the South Node – the direction we have LOTS of experience with from earlier this lifetime, and many past lives. Here we bring forth personal skills and talents from those lifetimes to use NOW, in this lifetime. We also bring forth UNRESOLVED ISSUES FROM THE PAST – some call it Karma – that require healing, now. This can be within relationships, circumstances and situations that are brought forth for us to re-experience, walk through vs. running from, breathing through all the emotions/feelings that come with these experiences. This is where our Emotional Body truly becomes Wise and Mature.
  • A significant public figure born with a Cancer North Node/Capricorn South Node: English blues rock guitarist, singer/songwriter Eric Clapton. Through his love of the “blues” and not denying how he felt/shutting down his feelings during key crisis in his life, Eric used his feelings to move himself through these periods, through ‘the blues’. He learned to mix the Saturnian hard-working nature of Capricorn with his fluctuating emotional life (Moon/Cancer) to make a powerful impact in the world of music. Using his music to connect deeply with the promptings of his heart, healing himself, and healing the world around him.

Looking back to 2000/2001 – how well did you listen to and feel your feelings while working out how to deal with them? What did you build back then and how solid was that foundation – is it still a part of your life, now?

May 2018 photos 059As we begin another round of this Cancer North Node/Capricorn South Node journey, what cracks in your Inner Foundation require healing? How do you deal with your Emotional Body’s needs for nurturance, love, compassion and healthy energetic / emotional boundaries with family and friends? Self-care vs. 100% care-giving / care-taking others is key now. The energizer bunny can only go for so long before it burns out from a lack of self-care. ASK for what you need, and allow yourself to take it in, use and embrace it. Put down the belief that asking is weak, needing is weak, leaning is weak. It is STRENGTH to know when to recharge your Emotional Body – to intuit whom to ask for help – to embrace those denied feelings – finally. Western society seems to be built upon DOING vs BEING/FEELING – definitely time to re-balance this!

Those born with their North Node in Cancer/South Node in Capricorn will experience a Nodal Return and see these next 18 months as a significant sea-change of their life (which occurs every 19 years!). Those born with their North Node in Capricorn/South Node in Cancer will experience a Half-Nodal Return – whereby the current North Node will connect with their natal South Node; and current South Node will connect with their natal North Node – doing double-duty of healing Unresolved Issues from their past AND heading into new waters of Emotional Body change, Within!

For the rest of us: we’ll undergo significant sea-change too – it is TIME (Capricorn) to FEEL (Cancer) those feelings and create goals of better self-care. Interestingly, the Moon, which rules Cancer, also rules our Daily Habits – what are your daily Emotional Body self-care habits and do they require a tune-up?

What I LOVE about Astrology: are the opportunities for Self/Soul growth that cycle back again and again via the luminaries (Moon & Sun) and planets/asteroids. They bring forth OPPORTUNITY for change and growth, to look back at where we’ve been and see that Inner Growth/Wisdom over time. You bring OPENNESS to RECEIVE and EMBRACE these moments for yourself. BE that CHANGE.

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 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!

New Moon Gatherings in Okotoks, AB

Every New Moon I’ve facilitated (since 2011) a Gathering of seekers (women and men) who feel called to learn to connect with themselves emotionally and intuitively while also opening up to receive INsights, intuitive pulls and listen to their feelings.

cropped-gibbous2bmoon2bw2bjupiter2.jpgA New Moon begins when the Moon & Sun sit together at the same Zodiac position in the sky (today it was just after noon MDT) initiating a NEW cycle of conscious awareness, emotionally, for all. Each New Moon Gathering focuses on the Zodiac sign’s position in your birth chart, the themes around that sign AND the House of Life Experience that is activated in your chart. Together, you will find ways to navigate that Emotional Body of yours, feel those feels and intuitive INsights Within, and evolve into a more Mature Spiritual connection Within.

In Okotoks, I hold my monthly New Moon Gatherings on a Tuesday (7:00 – 8:30 pm) and a Thursday (5:00 pm MDT for 1.5 hours). I require your birth data: time, place and date of birth – to create your birth chart from which we work with.

Each Gathering member receives key handouts that help with the learning curve of the Moon’s phases and why we can be so emotional around the New and Full Moons. Cost is $25 per person per month.

bea56-okotoks2bmoon2bglobe2If you’re unable to attend in person, ask for the written version ($30) that I email to your inbox. Don’t miss out on the key information that helps you navigate the emotional waters of Life Experiences every Moon cycle!

Contact Laurie Rae now: myhouseofastrology ‘at’ shaw.ca or call/text: 587-437-3520 here in Okotoks, AB Canada for more information and reserve your spot for this INsightful Gathering!

I look forward to facilitating this wondrous evening of Inner Awareness for all of you!

Namaste
