1st QTR Moon in Aries + YOD!


Comet Catalina – composite image by Mark Shelton January 2016

Usually I would tweet about this Moon phase, however I also wanted to talk about Comet Catalina AND the Yod, or Finger of God, that has been activated since the New Moon phase. All together it’s been one whopping week of inner change and Letting GO!

Today, Sunday, January 17th, the Comet Catalina is closest to Earth since she was discovered coming our way back in October 2013! She is winging her way past the Handle stars of the Big Dipper. This set of stars is called a asterism and is not considered a constellation. The stars therein are actually connected to three other constellations: Ursa Major, Ursa Minor and Draco the Dragon. Together, circling round Polaris, our Pole Star, they create an image long known by the ancients as the Goddess and the Dragon! They thought of this area of the sky to be the Birth place of all goddesses, the Mothers of Earth and Cosmos. Are we now experiencing the Rebirth of the Divine Goddess, Divine Feminine power energy once more?

The planet Venus began a new 8-year journey as of August 22, 2015 within LEO. At the same time the fixed star, Regulus, the heart of the Lion, moved from being in the sign of Leo for all these thousands of years (!!) into Virgo! Both were escorted by Jupiter in Virgo too. Another rare event, to have this planet of expansion and amplification bring forth:

  1. the birth of Venus as a Morning Star, within LEO – royalty, leadership, Love/Loving, leading by example, creating from the heart, romance, Inner Child, children, and a return to having fun and playing (Child of Innocence) –
  2. AND a sign change by Regulus, a Royal Star, depicting a noble mind, frankness and courage. Methinks Hilary Clinton may well get in as the new US President in 2016 – time will tell. I expect there will be more new feminine leaders too within these next eight years. Our province of Alberta here in Canada had a total change in party government, the NDP, and majority of the people running this government are female! A re-balancing is definitely coming forth to everyone here on Earth.

Jupiter has stationed Rx (Retrograde) as of January 8th, bringing her energy inward, personalizing everything since. Me-directed right now. I mention Jupiter Rx because both Jupiter and the North Node Rx are in VIRGO – the Virginal Goddess – a woman with means, education, intelligence, and the means to look after herself. Not being kept or controlled by anyone. She is her own person, able to move freely, speak freely, and BE of service as she chose. The original meaning of Virgo o so long ago.

Jupiter Rx and North Node Rx at 23 degrees of Virgo are the Finger, or Yod, apex within this Moon cycle’s chart. We are all heading toward expanding the True North direction of the service we are all respectively bringing to the world this Moon cycle. We will know better what that is and will be by the Last QTR Moon phase.

Yod Finger of God 2016A Yod brings angles of planets together whereby we are all challenged to LET GO of old patterns of conditioning! And this could very well be 1,000’s of years-worth! Hence all the sickness of late – people letting go physically of what was getting in the way before now to be able to EMBRACE our Divine Inner Beloved – feminine or masculine – power energy. Within a BALANCED way – not patriarchy or matriarchy – BALANCE of BOTH for now on.

The other planets that form this Yod have already been activated within the first two Moon phases of this cycle! No wonder it feels like we’ve been dealing with a LOT since January 9th. These planets/asteroids are:

  • Ceres at 22 degrees Aquarius 55 minutes: first activated between New Moon January 9th and Crescent Moon January 13th. How we nurture our Future Self (Aquarius) and receive all the Future Insights we download from that Future Self on a daily basis! Look for Aquarius in your chart – in what House of Life Experience does it reside? This is where and what Future Knowledge is coming at you, via Ceres. It is also represents any old patterns of conditioning that you’ve been hanging onto that PREVENT you from embracing these insights, let alone receiving them! Aquarius is a fixed sign – somewhat stubborn and not easily changeable, unless it is their idea! Aquarius beckons us to BE our true authentic self AND humanitarians within our respective community. What is it you needed to Let Go of prior to the Light coming forth via the Crescent Moon? What have you been in the Dark about re: your true self? Just FEAR of BEing you? Showing your true You to others? Standing UP as you?
  • Since the Crescent Moon phase – whereby with more Light emerging we ‘see’ what needs to change and be let go of from the OLD me so that more of the NEW me can show itself – and just before Saturday’s 1st QTR Moon at 26 degrees of Aries 16′ as at 4:27p MSTERIS Rx was activated at 22 degrees Aries 18 minutes, the second arm of this YOD, requiring us to LET GO of old patterns of conditioning. Aries brings instinctual action/reaction, warrior/pioneer energy, BEing in your physical body, and your self-identity – who am I? And how do I SHOW myself to Others (especially within my physical body aka how I dress, wear my hair, show body language)? Aries can be impatient, angry, almost war-like. Ruled by Mars, we can come to blows with ourselves and others. ERIS is sister to Mars – she will stand up for what she believes in, to the death if necessary! Let’s not go that far, shall we? How about noticing the gender-role changes that have been affecting all of us since June 2012. No more ‘women do this’ and ‘men do that’. Now it is: we ALL do this! We are ALL connected. Identity-crises have been abundant these past 3.5 years for all males and females alike. Whew! Again, what patterns of OLD conditioning are you letting go?
  • The 1st QTR Square Moon phase also in Aries continues to activate Eris Rx’s position. This Moon phase brings some sort of CRISIS of ACTION – first off – to ACT or NOT to ACT? Then, what action? Because we are taking a NEW step away from something we’ve held dear for many a year/lifetime! Something our Ego-Shadow self deems necessary to keep to stay alive. Not so. Aries like to BE independent. Perhaps asking for HELP may be in order? And from the opposite sex? Hhhmmm…not to say you aren’t capable with the current situation/circumstance etc. We are saying it is time to DELEGATE and ask for help! BE part of Community (Aquarius) and work TOGETHER! THIS is the new talent/skill we are all learning from Ceres in Aquarius and Eris in Aries working together (not apart, alone or isolated). The MORE we allow these two players’ energies to work WITH and TOGETHER within us and our life this Moon cycle, the MORE positive energy/action/domino effect will be released into the position where Jupiter Rx and the North Node Rx in Virgo reside in your chart. BEing of Service in the mundane world of Earth. How much unemployment has there been these past 5+ years all over the world? And especially since the drop in the value of the barrel of oil? It is TIME to work together to create something NEW (Aries is another cardinal sign – initiating the NEW). And as always, birth pangs ensue while we rebirth ourselves through yet more change….
  • The RE-ACTION Point will reside at 23 degrees of Pisces! Here our Ego-Shadow will run, not walk, to the Drama Triangle, smack dab into the South Node position (!!) of OLD habits and skills, of BEing victim, wanting to BE rescued or BEing the rescuer, or feeling persecuted or BEing the persecutor (bully)! LOL! O well Ego-Shadow, I love you, I forgive you, and thank you for yet again needing that Drama in your life! Interesting how Pisces rules the oil and gas industry too….hhhmmm….any drama happening whilst people watch the downward spiral of oil prices? Alarm? Anger? Fear perhaps? Hhhhmmm…what to do, what to do?

The key here is to BE aware of your Ego-Shadow’s escapism methods, denial methods, and resistance methods. The LOUDER they are and the FEAR is, the more you know you are moving in the right direction! Yay! Ego does not like change of any kind. Especially when it means a change in BEing, DOing or ACTing. Use the intent that any of these old patterns of resistance you’ve been holding onto are tossed up to Comet Catalina’s tail – she will wing them away, never to return! Then,





To BECOME…your Best You Yet!

Blessed BE!

Alberta Provincial Election of May 5th…

WOW! What a change for this province (created only since September of 1905)! We used to be part of the Northwest Territories prior to that. Full of HBC (Hudson’s Bay Company) fur forts and trade between the French-Canadians, Metis, First Nations peoples and early settlers and farmers. Then turned into towns then cities. Now the city of Calgary has grown to house over a million people!

We’ve come a long way baby in 110 years! Energy capital of Canada, long-time holder of all things Conservative politically, and still NO provincial sales tax. Until yesterday’s landslide electoral win of the NDP (New Democrat Party) totally ousting the 43-year old hold the PC (Progressive Conservative) party had in this province! HUGE sea change to say the least! The PCs aren’t able to be the Official Opposition this time round either – and their male leader quit – lock stock and barrel…

WHY? What happened to create such a surprising (to most people) turn around? I dug around to find out when the NDP came into being – January 20/21st, 1962 in Edmonton (our province’s capital) during a convention. Here is the chart I created for noon January 21st:

NDP Political Party of Alberta, Canada

NDP Political Party of Alberta, Canada

Note the majority of planets in this chart are sitting at the top, most of which are within the 10th House of BEing in the PUBLIC – and the Midheaven or MC – the topmost cusp, which begins the 10th House area – is in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn. Initiating change, using current resources to create something new, in a tangible way, that is required for the good of all, now.

Both Mars and Venus are closely tied to the MC, also in Capricorn – bring together BOTH men and women, working within the traditional institution (Capricorn), politics and government in this case. In the history of our province, women being able to vote came April 19, 1916, not quite 100 years ago! The first woman to be elected to a CANADIAN legislative body was Louise McKinney, her constituency was Claresholm, Alberta as an Independent from 1917 – 1921.

Also from 1917 – 1921, Roberta Price (nee MacAdams) was the first woman in COMMONWEALTH history to introduce legislation (War Veterans’ Next-of-Kin Association, 1918). She was elected as Soldier’s Overseas Representative of the Non-Partisan League, Province at Large, Alberta.

Lastly, the first woman Premier of the province of Alberta was Alison Redford, from 2011 to 2014. Unfortunately, she did not have the integrity to finish her first term of office (Pluto transiting Capricorn since 2008 has systematically revealed over the years various government officials, CEOs, celebrities, and people in authority all over the world, who have had less-than integral motives re: their material gain, misuse of power and control over others). She left in disgrace and it has been mayhem at the helm of our province ever since.

[historical data from: Library of Parliament, Parliament of Canada website].

In just under 100 years our province of Alberta has seen women of integrity step forward to create much-needed change. In 1928, Judge Emily Murphy, Louise McKinney, Nellie McClung, Irene Parlby, and Henrietta Muir Edwards (Alberta’s Famous 5) petitioned the groundbreaking Person’s case (whereby the Supreme Court of Canada unanimously decided that women were not “persons” who could hold public office as Canadian senators). In 1929 the British Privy Council reversed this decision, calling the exclusion of women from public office “a relic of days more barbarous than ours”. [from: Historica Canada website]

Why am I waxing historical here? Because history was made once again, yesterday, by the daughter of one of the original founders of the NDP provincial political party, Rachel Notley. She is now our second woman Premier. She and her party have taken a mostly Conservative province for the past four decades into a more Socialist stance. Totally decimating what used to be the “old boys network” here in Alberta.

I say this because of the 28 women elected in yesterdays vote, 27 of them are from the NDP. When I look at the NDP chart I see ALL of the feminine asteroids/planets cascading down from the 11th House of the Future down through the 12th House of the behind-the-scenes work being done.

I also see that the Sun, Saturn (ruler of Capricorn), Jupiter, South Node and Mercury are ALL in Aquarius within that Public 10th House. We are now transitioning out of the old Age of Pisces into the New Age of Aquarius (we go through this process of changing Ages every 2500 years or so). The ‘Turning of the Ages’ it is called; and now the NDP as a party has “come of age” too – ready and ripe to bring much-needed change and a re-balance to HOW and WHY we who live in Alberta, attract material gain.

Interestingly, the sign of Pisces rules the liquids of the Earth (aka oil and gas). In Alberta’s chart (see below) the South Node is at 00 degrees of Pisces in the 3rd House, with Ceres (ability to feed and nurture ourselves) and Eris (re-balancing our gender roles into a more equitable and fair way) in the 4th House of country/home (aka our province where we live). That South Node speaks of a new cycle (00 degrees) of moving beyond the unresolved issues of the past victimization into Victor role. Province-wise, people-wise, livelihood-wise.

It is interesting that Alberta is ‘home’ to the majority of corporate headquarters (mostly oil and gas) from around the world. And now Rachel Notley, with the NDP supporting her (and now we the people) to break away from solely relying on energy industries – to diversify and bring forth NEW technology, innovation and originality (aka Aquarius in the NDP chart). With the oil prices plummeting late last summer, and huge layoffs in Calgary alone from the energy sector and affiliated service companies, is it any wonder that we all voted NO yesterday to the same old same old?

Interestingly, the Full Moon in Scorpio on Sunday night EXACTLY connected to the NDP chart’s Neptune in Scorpio in the 6th House of what we expect from the daily operations of this party (Neptune rules Pisces, and Scorpio brings forth passion once we release the fear of even thinking about connecting to that passion). The Full Moon phase is ILLUMINATION of how we were operating in the dark before now. Neptune asks us to IMAGINE a better world, life, BEing, via love and compassion for the good of all. It shows us how to dispel any illusions or delusions along the way. The Moon rules our emotions AND intuition, and the 4th House of home/hearth/nurturance.

Can you all see how timely the election of the NDP into leadership has come about? What is also interesting to note is where Jupiter in Leo is activating this chart – in their 4th House of Home/Province place that we live in! Leo rules leadership as a TEAM, from the HEART. Jupiter expands and magnifies this energy and is currently activating the NDP chart’s Moon and NORTH NODE (direction the collective soul wishes to head into) in that 4th House!

The Rising Sign of the NDP chart is Taurus (ruled by Venus) speaking of VALUES, money, what we do for work to bring income into our lives, using all our senses, resources, skills and talents in a HANDS ON, tactile way, to CREATE something of beauty. Therefore Venus at 29 degrees of Capricorn in the NDP chart speaks of the END of a cycle of HOW women (Venus) have been viewed and valued (Taurus) within traditional roles and institutions (aka government, law, health, education, medicine, insurance, military, corporations, to name a few).

NOW is the time for Future (Aquarius) change for this province of ours. Most of Canada and Alberta were surprised to see such sweeping change. I was not. When I look at the NDP chart, seeing MOST of its planets sitting within the 4th QTR of the chart, the meaning of which is to ‘transcend Ego’ in order to BE of service for the good of all – well friends, the time is NOW, the FUTURE is here, and those 28 women are more than ready to roll up their sleeves to get to work!

Alberta as a province has always been known for its history of entrepreneurs, pioneers and gutsy men and women who decided NOW is the time to change the status quo! Look how much we have grown and overcome and built in just 110 years! What will we see change these next four years, let alone 100? I look forward to seeing HOW Rachel Notley and her fellow women build a better province WITH integrity, equality and balance for ALL Albertans. Learning from the past, to ensure a better future.

Blessed BE!
