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!

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.

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.

New Moon in Virgo: Service & Health?

September 9th, 2018 at 12:01 pm MDT the Sun and Moon stand together in the mid-day sky at 17 degrees of Virgo 00′ celestial longitude. The Moon is dark, the seed of unrealized potential awaiting blossoming by Full Moon. Each New Moon phase brings change of some sort. What will this Moon cycle bring you?

Venus – Her Synodic Journey PART IIIVirgo, our mutable earth sign of the Zodiac, represents our ability to be of service (daily work we do) and looking after the health of the physical body. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, our communication/thought-processes/learning ability planet, bringing into focus how well we process all of the above.

Perfectionism and procrastination and delaying is the Shadow side of Virgo – all honed by the Ego-self to prevent further Soul growth – if we allow it to be so. This New Moon’s chart shows an opposition between the Sun/Moon in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces (ruler of Pisces) still Rx (retrograde) bringing home personal truths of how we idealize situations, focus on illusion or delude ourselves into staying on that Drama Triangle role-playing of either Victim-thinking, wanting to be Rescued, feeling Persecuted or all of these.

IMG_0155Neptune calls us to imagine our personal Garden of Eden here on Earth – a better life, a new perspective that releases us from the bondage of Ego’s fear of letting go, surrendering to the Unknown, the Divine, the greater part of ourselves – the Higher Self – while tuning in to listen to our true heart’s feelings, intuition and follow through from there.

The Magic, Movies and Illusions that surround us can be tricky to discern one from the other. The Ego latches onto the Known, stable and secure. If anything or anyone threatens this status quo – look out! DRAMA! O woe is me! Fix me! Rescue Me! We all experience these moments of intense panic, of thoughts of failure, unworthiness and inability to move forward according to Ego’s dictates. The Ego has desired outcomes – which, if not manifested, creates panic and drama Within and Without.

December 2017 photos 042This New Moon in Virgo also shows a love line between Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Scorpio – mutable water to fixed water – go with the flow or stand frozen in fear. Your choice. Jupiter’s journey through Scorpio since October 2017 has shown us how limiting our fears can be, especially where Scorpio resides in your birth chart. Passion is what Scorpio is all about – deeply felt – and it can scare us, that depth of feeling. Ego will lash out, with fear, to stop the flow of moving Divinely on our life paths, not trusting or having faith that All Will be Okay.

Those desired outcomes (within the TIME-frame, dictated by our Ego) are the Illusion. We delude ourselves when we follow Ego’s desires and thought processes. We misconstrue Ego’s desires from our true heart’s desires. How can we tell the difference? Making decisions out of:

  • Desperation
  • Drama
  • Fear-based thoughts/conclusions
  • Victim-thinking – o woe is me/blaming others
  • Hopelessness
  • Depression

Virgo asks for us to BE of Service on the earthly plane, learning from, and teaching, others as we learn new skills of service. Current economic trends here in Alberta, Canada has a lot of people totally masked within fear, unable to see other possibilities, opportunities, avenues of NEW Service.

October 2017 Nature Pics 008This Moon cycle will show us HOW to look away from that PERFECT set-up/opportunity, to be grateful for what we already do HAVE that is working for, and with, us, while allowing ourselves to be OPEN TO RECEIVE, heartfully, whatever NEW is being seeded now.

Fall is already showing it’s colours, with frost to come this next week. Snow is showing itself on our Rocky Mountains. The world outside is beginning its death dance, about to go to sleep by Samhain (Halloween). Pluto in Capricorn sends its own love line to this New Moon in Virgo – Pluto transforms the Ego’s need to have control and power over our heart’s truest desires. Pluto wants all of us to BE EMPOWERED, from Within. Creating a win-win scenario for all involved.

Within Capricorn – traditions have been falling away since 2007 – and how we attain traditional goals with traditional responsibilities – again, falling away. Capricorn always asks us to take current resources and somehow CHANGE the way we use them, creating something NEW to be used, hands-on, now, for the greater good. Here is the process of Life-Death-Rebirth. What seems to be dying, all around us, is just another RENEWAL – deep Within, to change what is Without.

Look beyond the physical/obvious, and seek the ability to Go With the Flow – listen to your physical body’s needs, be open to ‘see’ other possibilities and opportunities. Know that Illusions/Delusions manifest only from Ego’s fears. Look BEYOND those fears. Look heartfully Within, and KNOW you already know your next true steps forward.

Each New Moon brings new opportunities, new focus, and initiates possible change. LOOK for all of this! Be mindful and heartfull all at the same time! Create an AND as much as possible – and LISTEN to your Inner Voice – positive and loving is best, all round.

Namaste

New Moon in Virgo: Processes & Procrastination?

If you are curious to see what your birth chart looks like and have it interpreted by Laurie Rae Rezanoff, 17+-year Astrologer, email her: myhouseofastrololgy ‘at’ shaw.ca (you know what to do with the ‘at’!) or call: 587-437-3520 in Okotoks, AB Canada to book your appointment.

The next New Moon phase, beginning a new Moon cycle, begins Tuesday, September 19th at 11:30 p.m. MDT at the celestial coordinates of 27 degrees of Virgo 27′. Here we begin to process through our environments, our work space, and those untidy areas of the home (if you haven’t already, considering the Sun entered Virgo back on August 22nd)! Each New Moon sees both the Moon and the Sun reside in the same place in the sky – hence why the Moon seems dark – the Sun’s light outshines the Moon, making it seem to disappear from the night sky.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, our planet of communication, learning, thought processes and logical relations with the world. Virgo wants order, rules and can go the nth degree to PERFECT everything and everyone around – including themselves! This is the extreme Shadow of Virgo. Otherwise, orderliness and setting processes in order, via the Emotional Body, will be the themes of this Moon cycle.

Looking at the chart for this New Moon cycle, I see Venus at 00 degrees of Virgo, followed by Mars at 09 degrees of Virgo, Mercury (now Direct! yay!) at 12 degrees of Virgo, and the Sun/Moon as New Moon at 27 degrees of Virgo. This lineup within Virgo brings:

  • Venus – our Desire Body – begins a new cycle of how we perfect our heart’s true Desires without killing ourselves! Jupiter traveled through Virgo from August 12, 2015 until September 11, 2016 expanding and making it quite LOUD how we either kept ourselves within strict boundaries of behaviour OR busted out of those restraints of old to find new processes (mind, office, home, you name it) to use that brought us closer to those Desires. Now Venus, that planet of love, peace, harmony, balance and beauty, brings a truer vibration to perfect WITH heart, rather than with Ego-mind. Heart vs. mind – can we create an AND here? Mix it up, create a good connection between what the Heart Desires and the Ego-Mind wishes to control?
  • Mars – our Action Body – here we take mindful action, keeping tabs on what’s worked in the past and what has not. Just because everyone else is doing it, whatever IT is, doesn’t mean IT will work for you! Discernment is required here. Think before leaping, yet don’t overthink that you miss an opportunity that could bring you closer to those Desires. Mars can mean impatience, wanting to ‘get going, eh?’ now! Here’s where Venus can help with some balance, ease and grace.
  • Mercury – our Thought Body – yes! Ruler of Virgo coming full-tilt in a Direct motion after all that Rx (Retrograde) nonsense (!) from July 25th until, well, today’s New Moon! Each Mercury Rx timing gives us all a chance to have a rethink, redo, reschedule, and re-organization to come out with, most likely, a totally different direction to mindfully go into. Am I correct? It certainly has for me! Interestingly, Virgo rules the 6th House of daily work + the health of the physical body. Perhaps all those interesting ideas Jupiter brought up for you in 2015/2016 are now jelling into Desires + Action = Mindfully different now in 2017? Hhhmm…let me think on that for a bit…
  • And lastly – the Sun/Moon as the New Moon phase – the Sun rules our vitality and Soul Self, taking creative action with fun and play mixed in. The Moon rules our daily habits, our Emotional Body, and those funky Ego-Mind fears of change. The Moon cycle brings forth opportunity to change those daily habits that are getting out of hand, not healthy (haven’t been for a while?) and is it TIME yet to make those changes for the better? The Moon rules Cancer and the 4th House of home, mothering/fathering, nurturing Self, then Others. How you were nurtured as a child will show up later in life in daily habits of how you now nurture yourself. Most women I know do for others before doing for Self, especially caregivers. With all of these planetary players here to assist us, perhaps it is TIME to make some much-needed changes in your life? Work-wise? Health-wise? Routines can grow old and comfortable like old runners and jeans. Do they still suit you? Is it time for something different that reflects who you are and where you’re at, MINDFULLY, now? Think on this for a bit, and, BE Honest with yourself.
Virgo rules the following within the physical body (according to Jan Spiller’s New Moon Astrology):
  • Digestion and Assimilation –  heartburn/indigestion can mean you’re way offside with your heart’s true desires! The physical body is always sending you messages – are you listening?
  • Bowels and intestines – is it any wonder why folks do a cleanse this time of year? Clean out those pipes in time for the long, cold winter ahead. 
  • Constipation and Diarrhea – here fear from the Ego-mind comes into play. ‘Scared shitless’ or ‘running away with fear’ come to mind. No pun intended. Listen to the messages your physical body is sending you.
  • The Solar Plexus Chakra – didn’t we just undergo a Venus-Moon Star Gate to let go of distortions within this chakra? I love how planetary cycles interact with one another, setting us up for another round of dealing with issues that we may have flunked out on or missed previously! Cool, eh? Read my previous post about the “Venus-Moon Star Gate in Leo” to review all the lessons this chakra brings us to deal with. Now you can see how perfectionism plays a role within the Solar Plexus Chakra re: the Ego-mind’s need for control and power! Just saying…

Okay, back to the chart for this New Moon cycle, Mercury is exactly opposite Neptune, ruler of Pisces, within Pisces! Interesting that both planetary rulers are opposing each other here! Mucho energy to bring the themes of Virgo (see above) AND the themes of Pisces – illusion/delusion vs. reality? Plus emotional escapism/distraction/addictive behaviours, and that old fav – the Drama Triangle of role-playing: Victim and/or Rescue Me/Rescuer and/or Persecution/Bullying. Which is better? Reality or illusion/delusion? For you?
These themes will be loud and clear for all of us to see and hear, and heal the Shadow aspects of, if we choose to do so. On a higher note, Neptune helps us imagine and envision a better world for Self and Others, and brings forth a new reality based on higher spiritual mores. Drama is creative, colourful and magical! Yes please do NOT forget about the MAGIC everyone! BELIEVE and have FAITH that ‘this too shall pass’! Do a Heart’s Desire board – create a better daily habit routine – perfect that process at work, at play, at home – and remember to PLAY and have FUN while doing so!
Namaste!
