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

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 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 Aries: Letting Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning?

Sunday, April 15th, 2018 at 7:57p MDT the Moon + Sun sit together in the sky as the New Moon at 26 degrees of Aries 02′ holding hands with ERIS (!) to remind us this Moon cycle of what it is that we’ve been neglecting in our respective lives.

At the same time, this New Moon lineup sit at an angle to Jupiter at 21 degrees of Scorpio 06′ Rx (retrograde) sensitizing and bringing the expansive energy deep Within to help us all Let GO of Old Patterns of Conditioning re power and control issues, emotional manipulation, Ego-self fears and trust issues! The Divine Plan is to help us move out of the Shadows into our Passionate natures – when was the last time you felt passionate about something? Really truly – when?

April Mountains & Clouds High River, AB

The New Moon lineup in the cardinal fire of Aries brings forth the archetypes of:

  • Warrior
  • Pioneer
  • Explorer
Via instinctual action, assertion, standing up for ME, Myself & I, eh? This is the “I” of the I AM keywords in Astrology: Aries + planetary ruler, Mars + 1st House themes. Your physical body, moving it athletically or otherwise, and how you embrace that Inner Warrior part of yourself Soulfully (Sun) and through your Emotional Body (Moon).
Luckily our Mercury planet Stationed Direct earlier today (yay!) and we are gearing up to move forward easier within our Mental Body from today onward. Whew! Note that Mercury’s placement in Aries right now has been activating everyone’s natal ERIS (!) since March 9th! Especially for those of us born between May 1939 and May 1988. Mentally reminding each of us of that which we’ve been NEGLECTING in our respective lives…according to the themes already mentioned herein.
Have there been opportunities to assert yourself since March that you’ve ignored, shied away from, run away from? Speaking out before thinking about its impact to those around you? Mercury’s communication actions are not only directed outwardly with others – how has your Inner Talk been acting of late? Impatient? Aggressive vs. assertive? Less than loving?
Prairie April Skies!
Pluto is also in play with this New Moon lineup – he’s still travelling through Capricorn, another cardinal sign (earth) creating stress and tension for change regarding power, control, greed, less than integral business practices – ensuring we build a solid foundation of HOW we do business out in the world now. The change is a transformation of how assertive we all are when it comes to above-board business practices, responsibilities, goal-setting – bringing forth reputations of either reliable, not so reliable to downright illegal. Think of Pluto as the Phoenix: dying to some aspect Within only to be Reborn in the next moment. Surrender the Old, embrace the ReNEWed! A continuous do-over of life, death and rebirth…
Dive deeply into those fears that show themselves this Moon cycle to uncover your True Passionate natures. Trust your intuition and instincts; take action accordingly. BE alert, patient, and move your physical body! 
March Snowy Mountains
The Sun was shining here today in Southern Alberta! Yay! The mountains were awesome with their crevices outlining and shining brightly from all the white snow they’ve received this winter. Snow is melting AND snow is on the way yet again overnight into Monday (sigh…) and Tuesday…glad this weekend we had two days of Spring that was heartwarming and welcome.
Physically, Aries rules the following in the body:
  • Acne (eruptions of fire)
  • Eyes
  • Head, face, scalp and brain
  • Headaches and dizziness
Be alert to how the Aries energy is landing within any of these physical areas of your body – cardinal fire MUST be utilized physically somehow – otherwise this energy, if trapped within the physical body can lead to ailments in any or all areas mentioned above. Go for a good long walk, exercise, run and jump, physically MOVE this fire OUT while also navigating your Inner Warrior Inner Explorer Inner Pioneer WITHIN…lots of action this Moon cycle!
Namaste

Twice in a Blue Moon: Full Moon in Libra

Hi Everyone! Today we have a second Blue Moon (Full Moon) event within a calendar month this year of 2018! Cool!

March 31st, 2018 -22 windchill snowy morning!

2018 began with a Full Moon within the cardinal water sign of Cancer (perhaps why we’re all experiencing so much MORE snow/rain in 2018?! Record-breaking snowfalls for us here in Southern Alberta since 1958!) and ended with a Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse January 31st within the fixed fire sign of Leo – shining our individual Light of Creativity out into the world.

March began with a Full Moon within the mutable earth sign of Virgo – going with the flow of how we each wish to Be of Service out in the world – perfecting processes, organizing our respective worlds along the way….

Now, today, March 31st, within this Easter long-weekend, as of 6:37 a.m. MDT at 10 degrees of Libra 45′, we bring forth ILLUMINATION within the cardinal air sign of Libra: re-balancing that which has been out of balance. Where in your birth chart does Libra reside? Here is where the re-balance is activated by the Moon’s Light (our Emotional Body), reflecting the Unconscious Desires of the Sun (Soul/vital self).

Cardinal signs initiate CHANGE and something NEW this way comes – what are you ‘seeing’ for yourself, and to be open to receive, now? Libra, ruled by Venus (our Desire Body) brings forth the need for equality, harmony, peace, beauty and love within our close 1-on-1 relationships/partnerships – be they personal and/or business-oriented.

Saskatoon Farm Feb 23, 2018

Libra’s glyph depicts the Scales of Justice – hence equality, harmony, the legalities of life here on Earth. Justice, the Goddess, is blindfolded, creating the illusion of non-judgement, diplomacy and negotiations in good faith. I use the word ‘illusion’ here because of how unbalanced our legal systems seem to be at the moment: within chaos and change – that the Dark side of life here on Earth seems to be gaining more than its usual toehold within society at large.

Each Full Moon brings forth ILLUMINATION: AHA moments of awareness as to what we’ve each been searching for, in the Dark, that has now been brought into the Light, from Within, to face, embrace, heal (if need be) and either integrated into a new daily habit, and/or let go of as an old bad habit. All since New Moon which began March 17th within the mutable water sign of Pisces – going with the flow Within your need to Be of Service beyond your Ego-self – connecting MORE through your Spiritual-Self.

How much drama have you seen Within/Without since March 17th? Mixed in with Mercury’s Rx (retrograde) journey through Aries (cardinal fire) how patient has your mindset been? Quickfire thoughts/decisions/conversations, allowing you to mentally move through obstacles that before Mercury turned Rx seemed insurmountable?

Pisces brings forth the Old Age of Pisces’ Shadow role-playing via the Drama Triangle: victim and/or rescuer/rescue me and/or persecuted/bully – where are you still residing within any/all of these roles, within your Life? This Moon cycle will have shown you self-awareness about this theme.

Jan 31, 2018 Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse

Today’s Full Moon in Libra brings forth balance – however momentary it seems. Like a flash of lightning – cuts through the mental chaos to clarify certainty with heartfelt intention for Next Steps.

We want to RELATE with an Other at this time. We want equal face-time to air whatever is on our minds and in our heart of hearts. Interestingly, those of us living in North America, within this Mercury Rx through Aries (Inner Warrior/Pioneer/Explorer) timing have also been navigating the income taxes, connecting with our accountants and/or doing our taxes online ourselves (more the latter, as Aries is all about independence?). What “Information You Didn’t Know You Needed to Know” came to you since March 9 re taxes?

Hence the reality of legalities of this Full Moon in Libra: which side of the right/wrong coin are you residing? Integrity is what Pluto has been transforming within the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn since 2007! There is 6 years more of this transformation – wonder what we’ll learn/see forever changed? Our monetary system? Look back and remember ALL the public figures who have been felled due to their lack of integrity business practices! Adding to the mix has been Jupiter moving through Scorpio (since October) opening up many Pandora boxes of long-held secrets, lies and deception.

Totem Poles, Saskatoon Farm 2018

Interesting times we live in…cleaning up more of what was normal business practices from the Old Age of Pisces’ Shadow side…as we gain more momentum within this New Age of Aquarius – how are you BEing your True Authentic Self AND contributing within Community AND leading heartfully, with courage, to stand Within that authenticity? To Create something that will SHINE your energy out into this new world unfolding before us?

Check out the balancing act you are currently undergoing – is it more balance or more act? BE social, BE You within the WE, and share, listen, speak, and learn with each conversation, interaction…BE all of whom you truly are in every given moment.

Worldwide Currents of Outrage…

It’s been a while since I last wrote here. Lots of changes happening (all good!) within my life. And interestingly, quite the change going on in the world today.

My good friend Diana Frajman, from Vancouver Island, wrote a post in her Crone Confidence blogsite called, “Is This a Feminine Awakening or a Reckoning of Man?” now that Canada’s leaders are being outed for their power and control abuses after the USA male leaders were outed before Christmas. The debate is this: are the women going too far, somewhat doing to the men what the men did to begin with?

I commented the following, and I thought everyone who reads this Astrological blog would benefit knowing what’s going on Astrologically, in perfect timing. Please read on…

Hi Diana, love what you wrote here. 

Astrologically, due to ERIS (the gender role rebalancer ever since she was discovered earlier this century) and sister planet to MARS, dancing closely with Uranus (rebel with a cause, Expect the Unexpected, with individuation – how can I BE my true authentic self?) since June 2012 within the cardinal fire sign of ARIES – ruled by MARS! – we are seeing women taking back their power, yes. We are seeing men stumbling due to their abuse of power, yes. We continue to see the wars ensue in the Middle East, the underground wars re guns, drugs, trafficking of people etc.

The KEY planet who is helping along the way, who started her Synodic journey in ARIES back in March 2017, is VENUS – our Desire Body – bringing forth a renewal of HOW we Desire to do ARIES – helping to change the bloodthirsty, war-like energy that has been known as Aries since the Patriarchy began. Now with the two feminine planets – ERIS and VENUS – working together as their true individual aspects of the Feminine WITHIN the masculine energy of Aries – we are coming to the Full Moon point if you will – according to Venus’ journey in the night sky, akin to the story of INANNA, we are currently undergoing a collective Inner Death as we walk with Venus in the Underworld – dying to our former selves – consciously or unconsciously – we are ALL undergoing this transformation.

By February 2018, Venus will begin emerging as the Evening Star (she began as the Morning Star in March 2017) where she regains the vestments she discarded over 7 months last year. Now, the following 7 months, beginning in March with the New Moon energy, there will be a steady RENEWAL of how we all DO Aries energy in our lives – men and women, boys and girls.

Venus brings Love, Acceptance, Diplomacy, Equality, Discussion, Debate and ‘seeing’ beyond the Ego-self. Over time, this will grow more and more. The Venus Synodic Cycle is what I am talking about, and have been writing about (see my previous posts in three parts), where she meets up with our Moon, 7 times, to remove / cast off that which she no longer needs, letting go of the distortions of what she’s been carrying with her up until now. For 7 months, after her walk through the Underworld (where we are now) she picks up a RENEWED sense of self, again 7 times, to become whole.

Each Venus-Moon connection (x 7) reflects one of our Chakras – the first round of 7 (since March 2017) had all of us removing the distortions from our Crown down to our Root Chakras (until October 2017). Do you see the timing of it all?!

Coming up in March 2018, we regain our Root Chakra, this time having let go of those toxic distortions we’ve been holding for far too long. And on for the next 6 months following, until again in October 2018, we finish off with the renewed Crown Chakra. Very cool how our solar system assists with our Inner/Outer Growth here on Earth!

At the same time, Jupiter has been in Scorpio since October 2017 – bringing forth all the ugly fears, deep dark emotions of abuse, power and control issues that have been buried collectively for way too long. Jupiter expands us beyond current boundaries and helps us take courage to walk a wider path than we ever thought possible before! Going beyond the boundaries we created for ourselves up until now. Jupiter calls us to expand ourselves; Venus calls for us to Love Ourselves and each other; Eris calls us to assert the wrongs that BOTH genders have caused over time.

The current struggles, while BOTH genders deal with an equalizing of their Inner Feminine/Masculine energies, are indeed coming to a head. WITH LOVE, Acceptance, and honouring one another, we will see ourselves through to the other side. These next 10/11 months will be interesting to witness. We Live in Interesting Times….Namaste, your Astrological Friend, Laurie Rae Rezanoff 

All timely, which is why Astrology speaks to me and anyone who is looking for the WHY of NOW challenges we undergo as humans. The Ancients knew what they were doing 5,000+ years ago, assigning the right and proper archetypes to our planets, the Moon and the Sun, connecting our collective Spirit with our earthly lives as people evolving over Time.

It will be an incredible journey, for all of us, this year of 2018! Numerologically, 2018 reduces to the Master Number of 11 – to be of service beyond the Ego-self, to gracefully show up no matter the challenge, and to do so With Spirit and Heart and Love and Forgiveness.

I plan to create a monthly workshop for Venus’ next Synodic Journey from her next position within SCORPIO (beginning in November 2018). Healing all our buried fears within our chakras. Stay tuned for more information about this.

In the meantime, listen to your Inner Feminine AND Inner Masculine – be you man, woman, boy or girl. BOTH genders have wonderful aspects to offer (always have) and within the New Age of Aquarius, we have the opportunity to RENEW these energies within the sense of allowing each of us to BE our true authentic selves, AND grow/evolve Within Community, together.

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!
