New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Capricorn: “Taking Care of Business”

Saturday January 5th, 2019 at 6:28 pm MST we experienced the New Moon/Solar Eclipse within the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn – Taking Care of Business – be it your business of the work you do, of home and hearth, family or relationships or self needs.

Solar Eclipse-Partial

Solar Eclipse – Partial

The days leading up to January 5th told you which area of life was about to be “…refueled, having new seeds planted within it, creating new foundations for new projects, reaching outward and striving toward new experiences….” (Celeste Teal’s Eclipses Predicting World Events & Personal Transformation, 2009).

Each New Moon phase brings its own NEWNESS – something your Emotional Body has been holding onto, perhaps a daily habit that is now blocking your way forward, a decision made many moons ago that shows itself, now, to be not you at all – whatever the NEW is to be – this Moon cycle will show you how well you are, need to, must, take care of its business.

img_2046 2Astrologically, Saturn rules Capricorn, and is therefore the Lord of this Eclipse. Saturn will try to constrict, limit, discipline, and need to conserve (tighten those belts?). There can be an air of KARMIC occurrences in your life this week too. Please be aware of all interactions, transactions, and circumstances that showed up – can be as simple as signing a contract or waiver – what do you FEEL about what occurred? Is it haunting you? Is it empowering you?

A Solar Eclipse brings forth processing our Self-Identity and Ego – who am I and how am I mastering my Ego-self needs/choices/desires to allow more room for my Soul-self needs/choices/desires? The energy of this eclipse continues onward, within our lives, for the next 3.5 years!

Capricorn is the mountain goat climbing up and down and across mountain paths, seeking its goal. Have you plateaued out? Are you catching your breath? Or is your Ego-self afraid of success, hiding away from new opportunities, life changes that will open you up to even greater potential and reward? Some mountain goats continue to climb despite their Ego-self fears/denials/resistance, some return to home base and wonder “What was I thinking?!” while others stay put – keep the status quo – don’t rock the boat, eh?

img_1106Capricorn, as a cardinal sign, MUST create change. This earth sign begins a new season – Winter – and all the change this season brings, weather-wise. Having an Eclipse in an Earth sign denotes drought, recessions, financial problems, scarcity, famine, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions or avalanches. Earth signs are motivated by practical concerns.

Here in Alberta our winter has yet to begin – barely any snowfall thus far, temperatures are still mild (considering we’re used to more -20 to -30 C temperatures) – so yes, I’d say we’re experiencing a bit of drought.

Apple shares plummeted, causing the stock markets to drastically decline, then rallied back within the first few days of January. Canada/Alberta have indeed been in a recession, especially with the oil and gas industry changes and challenges since 2014, made worse due to provincial and federal shenanigans.

2019 will find Albertans and Canadians returning to the polls to elect NEW government leaders – time will tell all soon enough. Capricorn rules all traditional institutions such as government, economics, trade, health, education, taxes, law and corporations. Any more cut-backs coming our way?

As always, people decide to leave us just prior to or with an Eclipse. Their passing brings change and the Emotional Body, Physical Body and Mental Body are in a state of shock, flux and sorrow – no matter if it was a sudden death or one long-expected. The process of Letting Go that loved one is our grief process – totally unique for each of us. And here constriction, stability and security issues come to the fore like no other.

7chakrasyogaWithin the Physical Body, via the energetic Chakra system, the Root Chakra is ruled by Saturn and Capricorn – our connection to Earth. Interesting how, with this Solar Eclipse, we all can be experiencing any of the following:

  • Main Issues: of Survival, Stability or physical needs and sense of safety
  • When Imbalanced, May Experience: anxiety disorders, unfounded fears, nightmares, issues with colon, bladder, elimination; lower back, leg or feet issues. For men, prostrate issues. Eating disorders may also signify imbalance.
  • When Blocked: anxiety, lack of physical energy, as sense of being ungrounded (or perhaps NOT being in your body?)

To rebalance/unblock this Root Chakra, try:

  • Using the Mantra: LAM over and over…observe where the Ego is stuck on security, stability or financial issues…what changes need to be made?
  • Affirmation: “I am safe, protected and secure. All is as it should be.”

An eclipse will occur during a New Moon or Full Moon only if one of the Moon’s Nodes (North Node or South Node) is nearby. For this Solar Eclipse in Capricorn, the South Node is here – bringing forth Unresolved Issues from Past Lives/earlier this lifetime – all with the theme of security, stability and survival. Take advantage of this Dragon’s Tail to sweep away the blockages/imbalances of old – are they still part of your belief system, now? “I cannot retire without knowing how long I will live, so do I have enough money to survive?!” is one scenario….live for your life now…AND trust you will bring forth new sources of income along the way. We are, after all, reinventing retirement, being a senior/elder, and old age.

2018 march snows! 004Saturn is Father Time – and guides us to our goals, the responsibilities we take on, and that which we want to BUILD, successfully, for posterity. No matter what age you are, dream and build using current resources at hand to transform them into something NEW that is required by the collective, now. Only YOU have the ability to create YOUR creation – hands-on, with practicality and being connected with Mother Earth.

Namaste & in Loving Memory of Uncle Dan…Love You!

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!

Jupiter Moves into Sagittarius: Mindful Seeker of Purpose!

It’s been 12 years since Jupiter 164, ruler of Sagittarius Saturn Turns Retrograde April 5 - August 25, 2017 and our 9th House of Life Experience, entered into Sagittarius. That was November 24, 2006 until December 18, 2007. Where were you then? What were you seeking? Where is Sagittarius in your birth chart? This will be the House of Life Experience from which you seek your Higher Purpose. This is where you fling your arrow of Intention out into the world – which is the energy of this mutable fire sign, Sagittarius – being seen out in the larger world.

New Moon in Gemini: Connections & NegotiationsEvery 12 years we experience a renewal of purpose, abundance, and a need to expand known boundaries – personally, professionally, privately, publicly. This is called, in Astrology, a Jupiter Return – where Jupiter returns to the place it was in at your birth – its natal position in your birth chart. For those born with Jupiter in Sagittarius – yes, at some point this next year (anywhere between November 8, 2018 and December 2, 2019) you will experience your Jupiter Return.

For the rest of us, Jupiter, as of 5:39 AM MST today, is activating the House(s) of Life Experience in which Sagittarius resides in our respective birth charts. Jupiter is joy/jovial, uplifting and expansive – takes us beyond current boundaries we’ve constructed around our lives, that keeps our Ego-self feeling safe, secure and stable. Jupiter belies that belief of safety is best – is all about beliefs! And its mission: to go beyond where the Ego-self feared to roam!

Within Sagittarius, we’ll encounter new themes (compared to all the hidden secrets that were unearthed last year 2017/2018 publicly re the sexual abuses of power – all Scorpio themes – while Jupiter traveled through that fixed water sign) as we move away from the deeply hidden fears/emotions of Scorpio that had kept us from moving up and out, into the mutable fire of going with the flow by taking action beyond our safe locale – connecting globally, with purpose and a strong belief that yes, I do have purpose and can act for the good of all! Religious beliefs, philosophies, long-distance travels and connecting with other cultures this next year will be key for everyone. More global connections compared to 12 years ago!

f920a-egret2bon2bthe2bnileThere is a water Grand Trine connecting Jupiter with the New Moon in Scorpio + North Node in Cancer + Chiron Rx in Pisces – bringing forth much-needed HEALING regarding our SPIRITUAL PRACTICES & BELIEFS! This next year will either be full of Drama (via that Drama Triangle of victim thinking / wanting to be rescued/doing the rescuing / feeling bullied/persecuted) OR we’ll successfully take ourselves OFF that role-play via meditation/spiritual awakening to bring forth Love, Acceptance & Compassion for All. Now wouldn’t this be a great gift to offer the world?

As a mutable fire sign, Sagittarius, we could take creative/spiritual action for others so far that we forget ourselves in the mix! Are you doing this action for YOU and Others, or just for the underdog? Remember yourself in the action – are you heartfully certain that you believe in ALL that is expected of you, from others? Or are you doing it all for an Ego-self lift? To be the Hero?

The archetypes we’ll encounter within Sagittarius could be any or all of the following:

  • SEEKER
  • JUDGE
  • INTUITIVE
  • WOUNDED
  • HEALER
  • ZEUS (Greek king of the Olympian gods)
  • JUPITER (Roman king of same)
  • PRIEST
  • GAMBLER
  • TEACHER/STUDENT/MENTOR
  • VISIONARY
  • PHILOSOPHER

According to Richard Tarnas, Ph.D., Astrologer, the Jupiter archetype was called the Great Benefic, related to Fortuna and Providence. Major aspects involving Jupiter tend to indicate the nature of one’s experience of personal expansion, growth, and success in all realms of life, as well as how impulses in these directions might be EXCESSIVE.

2018 March Snows! 004Be aware of excessive spending, eating, doing, talking etc. – depends where you have Sagittarius in your chart. If it is your Rising Sign – watch out for weight gain! Or perhaps, for all of us, the need, energetically, to physically MOVE the body – Jupiter rules fluid enrichment, nutrition, putting on weight, the liver, gallbladder, lungs, swellings and glycogen balance. Sagittarius rules the muscular system, your thighs and lumbar region. That fire energy needs to GO somewhere – better to physically move or creatively create vs. eating, drinking, gambling etc.

All in all – we are done with the tour of duty through the deep waters of emotion/fears that Jupiter brought to the surface 2017/2018. Now we have the FIRE to act, create, envision, speak up with others, study new philosophies/areas, travel globally to places we didn’t dare to before now.

What were you doing back in 2006/07 – and where did it take you? Compare that to now – what went unfinished/untried due to Ego-self fears to expand, leave your safe place? Are those things/experiences left undone 12 years ago still part of your Bucket List of To Do’s? Or do you have a whole raft of NEW Things To Do? And will you do them, or won’t you? ‘Tis all up to you…

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!

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.

New Moon/Solar Eclipse in LEO: Co-Creative Spiritual Purpose

Saturday, August 11th, 2018 at 3:58 a.m. MDT we experienced our last Eclipse of 2018 – a Solar Eclipse – at 18 degrees of Leo 42′ – taking INspired Creative Action which will abound in each of our lives for the next 3.5 years.

c2238-balloons2band2borbsCollectively, these 3 summer eclipses have propelled all of us forward, faster and further, to BE where we need to be at this time, and in 3.5 years’ time. The other planetary characters supporting this New Moon/Solar Eclipse, also in the fixed fire of LEO, are:

  • North Node – signalling the direction forward our Soul-self is meant to move into
  • Mercury Rx (retrograde) – our Mental Body – still dialing it backward since July 25th from 23 degrees of Leo 27′ to 11 degrees of Leo 32′ – will Station Direct August 19th (a week away!) and move directly again over the above coordinates – where we began this Heartfelt, Mindful journey back on July 7th (completing this Rx period by September 2nd). Remember: we’ve been mentally re-doing our decisions, thoughts, conversations and self-talk, all heartfully (Leo) between July 7th and September 2nd. BE mindful of your intentions (thoughts) to ensure they dovetail with your true heart’s desires.
  • Pallas Athene (feminine asteroid) – bringing forth the Wisdom we’re uncovering from our Heart Chakra’s at this time. Listen to your deep Inner Wisdom during daily meditations – what are the intuitive insights telling you? Any outward signs and signals catching your eye? And are you taking them in and following their direction?

IMG_0161The other important feature within the chart I created for this New Moon/Solar Eclipse is the YOD, or Finger of God, that points directly to the Moon, Sun and Pallas Athene all in Leo. A YOD features 2 other planets that are angled in such a way to ensure we are Letting Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning – continually – these next 3.5 years! The 2 other planets in play are:

  • Pluto Rx at 19 degrees of Capricorn 20′ – Rx (retrograde) planets bring their normally outward energy INSIDE of us, personalizing and sensitizing the process and energy they supply. Pluto transforms our Ego-self fears and need for power and control into EMPOWERMENT, forcing us to ‘see’ and create Win-Win scenarios in the people and situations/circumstances we attract to us at this time. Within the cardinal earth energy of Capricorn brings opportunities to use the resources at hand to re-create them into something NEW that is required by the collective at this time. Earth signs always ask us to be hands-on, creating something tangible others can take away to use in their lives somehow. What is your transformation? What will you re-create in a tangible way?
  • Neptune Rx at 15 degrees of Pisces 18′ – here the ruler of Pisces, Neptune, is bringing home (deeply Within) how we connect Spiritually within ourselves. The recent 21-day meditation series from Oprah and Deepak Chopra has been so timely! Completely ‘bringing home’ HOW we can and do co-create with the Source of All That Is (God, Great Spirit, Higher Self – whatever you believe to be that Source) via our Desires as we learn to embody our True Authentic Self (despite our Ego-self’s need for control, resisting change or blowing up fears of us taking Leaps of Faith) and enter the Silence to hear/understand what our next steps can be, if we’re listening Within.
  • The KEY to Let Go of our Old Patterns of Conditioning: here we learn to combine Pluto’s Transformation energies creating Win-Win scenarios AND connect deeply Within to our daily Spiritual practice that ensures we connect Soul-fully to BE of Service beyond our Ego-self (Neptune) – remember the MAGIC, imagine your own Garden of Eden (the Universe’s the limit) of Desires that INCLUDE what’s best for the others in your life. The more you Let Go of your Ego-self’s need for control, being fearful, not trusting in the Creative Forces of the Universe – the better.
  • As you learn to LET GO of all of the above these past 3.5 years, the MORE you’ll be sending energy up to the Leo planetary players, learning to Co-Create via INspired Creative Action (the Fire element). The more Pluto Rx works well with Neptune Rx, the clearer your Intent and Imagination will be.

Sunrise2Neptune Rx also sends one of these connects of Letting Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning to our Mental Body – Mercury Rx – in this New Moon/Solar Eclipse lineup. Here we have the opportunity to Let Go of our Ego’s need to BE LOGICAL, black & white, on or off, to embrace our right-brain “thinking outside the box” creativity while listening to our intuition and how we FEEL about it. Brainstorm with like-minded others, create the MAGIC, and Lead as a Creative Team (Leo).

LEO themes this Moon cycle include (according to Jan Spiller’s “New Moon Astrology”):

  • Heart Connections: love and romance, children, dating, intense love encounters. Watch out for giving and seeking approval from others!
  • Creativity: via enthusiasm, creative projects, artistic expressions, being totally involved in your creation, self-actualization during the creative process, including your passion!
  • Giving Love: via generosity, loyalty, bringing joy, kindness and encouragement to others.
  • Pleasure and Celebration: via fun & play, games, parties, recreational sports and taking risks for excitement. We don’t really need to go extreme…
  • Dignity: recognition, being centre stage (watch out for being the Drama Queen/King! This shows where your Ego-self hangs out!), self-confidence, powerful individual expression, radiance and benevolence – SO LEO! Heartfully…
  • Determination: leadership, concentrated focus, follow through, strength of purpose, resoluteness and stamina. Beware of that “Energizer Bunny” attitude where you can burn the candle at both ends sooner than later. Find the fun and play, above!
  • Temper Your Ego’s Arrogance: here’s where Pride, being overly dramatic, self-centred, extravagant and/or bossy comes into the picture – all Ego-self related vs. hearfully/soulfully working with your Leo self. NB: we ALL have Leo in our birth chart – and this area of yourself is activated monthly via the Moon cycle and yearly by the Sun!
  • Physically, Leo Rules: the heart, back and spine, inflammation, exhaustion and heat exhaustion – stay in the shade during these overly hot and heated 35+C degree days! Drink plenty of water – keep hydrated with watermelon water, electrolyte water, cucumber water – whatever appeals to your particular palette!

dsc05095Bottom Line: connect Within both Spiritually, and Heartfully, to co-create your Life Forward with the Divine AND down here in tangible ways. What sparks your INspired creative imagination? And with whom will you play and have fun?
