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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Waiting for Santa Dec 12th

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

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

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

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

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

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

Namaste & Happy Solstice & Merry Christmas!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Namaste

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 Capricorn: Taking Care of Business…

dsc05266The New Moon phase, initiating this current Moon cycle, began at 11:53p MST on December 28, 2016 at 07 degrees of Capricorn 59′ (aka 08 degrees of Capricorn). Mercury was (and still is) in Rx (Retrograde) also in Capricorn (06 degrees and 47′) creating a team environment to MINDFULLY (Mercury) work towards communicating (with others and within Self) our respective goals towards any or all  of the following:

  • Material Gain: mindfully, what does this concept mean to you? How do you DO material gain in your life? Pluto has been travelling through Capricorn since 2007/08 transforming how the world views and interacts with our material world. How has Pluto transformed this within your world? For example: job loss, debt, floods or hurricanes/tornados taking your home, death of loved ones – any or all of these occurrences forces us to rethink our material needs. Erases/eradicates former value systems we used to cling to. Where are you now with all of this? How do you now gain, materially? As in physically being able to put your hands onto something tangible. Do you NEED lots of tangible, or not as much as before?
  • Attaining Greater Heights: Capricorn’s glyph depicts the horn of the Mountain Goat or the tail of the Sea-Goat. The Sea-Goat climbed up from the oceans, to be on land (earth/tangible) and now climbs whatever mountain it is on. Goals move us forward into evolution of our respective lives. What is your goal for 2017? Is it the same material one you held dear in 2016? Has it changed? How has it changed? Do you see the new path forward/upward? What do you need for your journey and new path (that is, at the same time, ON your evolutionary path forward at this time)? Do you need to climb a totally different mountain compared to the one you were on in 2016?
  • Responsibilities: here’s the crux of the Capricorn energy – What am I responsible for in my life? AND (!) What am I NOT responsible for? Some of you may be so responsible for others that you are NOT being responsible for YOU and your life! Be honest here – check on your own motives. Saturn rules this Moon cycle and Capricorn – Saturn rules our fears. Currently, Saturn has been travelling through the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius – seeking our higher truth of Why am I here? What IS my purpose? What fears are manifesting for you that are blocking your forward and upward movement up your own path, on your mountain? Too many responsibilities you deem more important than living your own life for you? Excuses…Ego-Self delusions/illusions? Here is where we can stay stuck and plateau out – stay stagnant and not move forward in our own life.
  • Authority Figures: Saturn/Capricorn rule the masculine/father-figure types. How is your own Inner masculine taking a stance on what you are already an authority of? We all have something that we are really really good at. Can you mentor someone else with your wisdom and experience? Share knowledge with other authority figures? Partner with someone whose wisdom/experience dovetails with your own, creating a totally NEW (so Capricorn!) resource or service that the world needs now?
  • Structure: Capricorn is all about business, CEO-mindsets, the traditional organizations and institutions we’ve known for over 2,000 years! Pluto’s transit through Capricorn these past 8 years shows the cracks and even disintegration of the structures of many businesses and practices we took for granted until now. Look at Alberta – money Ontario (and our federal government) took for granted all these decades from our oil and gas industry has dried up and then some for the last 2.5 years – and the high numbers of us unemployed in Alberta and especially in Calgary, ever since! Integrity plays a key role. What new business practices, that embrace what is right and just for the good of all, are required now, for a better future? These industries and companies wouldn’t be dying unless change is truly required – this is the transformation Pluto brings to the table! Change or die. Bringing it down to the personal level: where is Capricorn in your chart? This is the area of your life where change that is required – what you’ve been doing over and over until now, if it hasn’t been successful – change it! Drop it! Move on to another path/tack!
  • Physically, Capricorn rules the skeletal structure, the knees, teeth and skin. If any of these physical aspects have been ‘speaking to you’ aka in pain, broken, or full of rashes – something Within you is trying to gain your attention! Listen! Take note! One of my favourite books, “The Secret Language of Your Body” by Inna Segal, tells us possible contributions emotionally/mentally that can be creating said pain, breaks or rashes in the physical body. If we’ve been ignoring our thoughts and feelings up until now, the last place they imbed themselves into is our physical body. How LOUD does it have to get before you stop and listen and do something about it? And taking on too much responsibility, feeling overwhelmed and lost – these all can contribute to creating possible physical ailments, over time, if we’re not dealing with it in the Now moment.

dsc05242We’ve been in the Crescent Moon phase since January 1st at 9:20p MST at 26 degrees of Aquarius 57′ – this phase brings a crisis of ‘seeing’ something from Within the Darkness of our Ego-Self that needs to be brought into the Light (which we’ll understand more fully by Full Moon). Aquarius rules being authentic, original and futuristic. Connecting with our Future Self. Those ‘bright ideas’ and innovative plans/motives. What aspect of your Future Self is your Ego-Self totally afraid to let into the Light of your Life? Where is Aquarius in your chart? This is where your true authentic self wants to THRIVE! Your Ego-Self may be blocking it from shining brightly. Why? There is a struggle here between the Old and the New – the New wants entry, the Old wants to hold it back to keep the same old, same old. Which will win?

The 1st QTR Moon phase begins January 5th at 12:48p MST at 15 degrees of Aries 40′ – another cardinal sign (initiating the new) in the element of FIRE – spiritual inspiration to CREATE something new in your life! Yay! The Crisis comes when you must take some sort of ACTION – of whatever it is you saw for yourself within the Crescent Moon phase. Question is: will you or won’t you? Take action?

dsc05278Tracking Venus’ journey of regaining all the Vestments she let go of from September 2015 until March 2016 – as of January 2nd, 2017, at 29 degrees of Aquarius, via our 3rd Eye or Brow Chakra – our Inner Seeing aspect of Self – we are regaining our Royal Staff. How are you walking WITH your intuition these days? Your ability to ‘see’ beyond the physical? To connect with your Inner Future Self and allow those innovative bright ideas into the Light of Today? What were you afraid of embracing until now? Think back to 2015/2016 – can you now see your courage and stamina, and all fears you have since let go of?

Mercury Rx in Capricorn has helped us to ‘take care of our own business’ by changing our minds about something that we thought was key prior to the beginning of December. Now with this New Moon cycle in Capricorn (both the Moon and Sun working together) our emotional/feminine and active/masculine parts of ourselves are also being called upon to FEEL and INTUIT new avenues of business for ourselves – AND to take ACTION upon them. Capricorn is the cardinal earth sign – initiating the new, using current resources in new ways. Create something new AND tangible. Capricorn always reminds me of Beaver – creating new houses out of current resources (trees) as needed. We don’t need to throw out the baby with the bathwater! Or reinvent the wheel! What does YOUR Life need, now, to be revitalized and evolved into a higher state?

What are your current resources? What do you need to create, now, for your future self and life? How will Venus, our Desire Body, bring forth those true desires as you carry your Royal Staff? Is it a walking stick to use on your new path forward/upward? Or is it a stick you beat yourself (or others) up with? Is it a leadership staff, heralding the wisdom/knowledge you have to share with other leaders, mentor others or be a leader yourself? Perhaps for the very first time, ever? Yikes!

dsc05256Look at what’s blocking your way forward/upward. Don’t try to go around it or avoid it. The more you do so, the bigger it becomes! Try embracing the thing you fear most and move through it – walk through it – don’t run and hide! Courage comes to those who breathe, take a stance, and envision a better, wiser and more loving aspect of Self. Take care of your own business – and do it now!

Blessed BE and Namaste!

Gibbous Moon in Capricorn…And YOD Activation…

Mt Lorette PondsToday at 12:11p the Moon moves into the Gibbous Moon phase, at 07 degrees Capricorn 22′. By this time of the Moon cycle we are evaluating our Inner Growth progress/process – what do you CONSCIOUSLY know about yourself that you didn’t before, since the August 2nd New Moon in Leo? Heartfully, where are you?

Capricorn brings us to a cross-roads of sorts: do I stay the course I have been on OR do I head upon a higher, more challenging, yet fulfilling pathway? Where are you at? What Higher Ambition are you seeking for further Inner Fulfillment?

Capricorn asks us to set forth some goals towards long-term plans that may not show fruition soon. Can you stay the course? Do you have faith and the wisdom to commit? And there is that portion of Capricorn that looks for the material gain here – what will you be GAINING if you stay where you are vs. moving higher up along a new path?

The other item of note today: At the New Moon there was a YOD, or Finger of God formation pointing directly at the Moon/Sun position in Leo August 2nd. The two planets that create the base of this formation are:

  • Pluto, Rx (retrograde) at 15 degrees Capricorn – the Great Transformer of all things power/control/greed into EMPOWERMENT for Self and Others – aka a win-win situation all the way round. Pluto comes by to peel back the carpet of whatever our Ego/brain has been hiding underneath re: fears of moving forward, for whatever reason, excuse, piece of denial it can seek until this moment in time.
  • Neptune Rx at 11 degrees Pisces – She dissolves issues of illusion/delusion we may possibly have – especially if we still have shards of connection to that Drama Triangle from the Old Age of Pisces (victim-rescue me-bully + Martyrdom). All the excuses our Ego/brain can IMAGINE to stir up MORE fears to do otherwise…If we choose to do so, we can IMAGINE BETTER, MORE, and EASE & GRACE for ourselves. We can! Change the perspective…easy peasy!
  • South Node Rx at 12 degrees Pisces – Holding hands with Neptune Rx, the South Node or Dragon’s Tail also brings us a CHOICE: Do I choose to allow that Dragon’s Tail to swish away ALL the PAST ways of how I’ve dealt with that Drama Triangle AND choose to IMAGINE Better, More, with Ease & Grace etc for myself? AND bring forth ALL the GEMS of what still works from the Old Age of Pisces (faith, connection to Spirit/God/Light of All whatever you name it) with the  inner knowing that I am supported, guided and will NOT Fall/Fail on a Higher Path into the Unknown of what is my Destiny (because we really don’t know how it will all work out – and may be pleasantly surprised to SEE MORE/BETTER/HIGHER – far beyond our own creative imaginings)! OR, just stay the course, do the same old/same old things, like we’ve been doing over and over and over again for How Many Lifetimes Now? Your choice.

Between today and just prior to the August 21st Disseminating Moon phase in Aries, therefore through the Full Moon in Aquarius (I will write a post separately for this phase) we will ALL be struggling in some regard with:

  • Pluto Rx in Capricorn letting GO of Old Patterns of Conditioning re: choosing HEART (Leo) vs. GAIN (Capricorn) AND Heartfully Gaining in the Process. What would happen if you LEAD from your Heart’s Desires towards Material Gain, without Power/Control issues leading the way? What are your Old Patterns of Conditioning in this regard? You will soon find out…
  • Neptune Rx with South Node Rx in Pisces letting GO of Old Patterns of Conditioning to HEARTFULLY have FAITH in your Higher Creative Self/Intuition/Inner Knowing of Listening Inside yourself (meditation/mantras/BEing in silence with yourself) that Following the Heart’s True Desires WILL Manifest Greater rewards in your life- and it all begins with your IMAGINATION – what can you enVISION that is MORE/BETTER/HIGHER for your Life now? Without judgement, or fear, or scoffing at the very idea?
  • While we all undergo this process, guess what also happens? Pluto Rx in Capricorn learns to WORK WITH Neptune Rx + South Node Rx in Pisces! We create an AND in some regard, Within Self, that hasn’t been forged before now. A new skill, way of coping that hasn’t seen the Light of Day. Cool! Aren’t you excited to ‘see’ how this is all going to come out? I am!

The Full Moon in Aquarius will ILLUMINATE any issues that still need to be addressed within that phase/during that phase – so a HUGE wakeup call for some of us, in some regard, as to HOW we’ve been ignoring our Heart’s True Desires. Perhaps you’ll realize what IS your Heart’s True Desire for the very first time this lifetime! And, Aquarius represents THIS New Age of Aquarius – and Leo (New Moon) IS the opposite sign to Aquarius.

My question to all of you: How will you navigate forward through these early days of the New Age of Aquarius if you DO NOT have Heart? If you do NOT have FAITH? If you do NOT have GOALS to imagine and move towards? Heartfully? Truly. Really.

Best of luck to you all on this interesting next piece of the Journey this Moon cycle has in store for you. And remember: what we manage to CREATE, HEARTFULLY during this Moon cycle sets us up for the September Eclipses! Energy of change that has influence in our lives for up to 3.5 years into the future!

Also: Mercury will be assisting all of us with how we are MINDFULLY deciding what truly works re: our daily work/BEing of Service out in the world, and the health processes of our physical bodies. If we don’t have our health, how High can we Climb to Higher Heights on our Upward, Evolving Life/Soul Paths? No matter what age you are now – where do you FEEL you need to head toward now? How HIGH do you wish to climb?

Blessed BE!

Full Moon in Capricorn: How High Will You Climb?

DSC04239Tuesday July 19th at 4:56p MDT the Moon sits opposite the Sun creating the Full Moon. Here the Moon reflects the Unconscious Desires of the Sun – those hidden emotional needs of the Ego-self are revealed – all of which surface just before, during or after the Full Moon – showing you consciously what you’ve been hiding from yourself until this Moon cycle.

We began the New Moon in Cancer on July 4th – enLIGHTening our true emotional natures, at times at odds with the entrenched family generational emotional line – more and more at each Moon phase since. What have you learned about your Emotional Body nature that you weren’t aware of before July 4th?

Some of us are undergoing the latest 21-day Meditation Challenge with Oprah/Deepak Chopra, uncovering hidden blocks to how we sabotage ourselves In The Moment from connecting to our creative self Within, being distracted by our brain/Ego-self to DO something else from the past or worry about the future. Interesting dilemma we humans have created for ourselves to stay STUCK, not moving forward or upward. Stagnant. Bored.

Tuesday’s Full Moon Illuminates upon the Moon sitting at 27 degrees of Capricorn 40′ – where is this in your chart? This is the area of your Life you’ve been unconscious, until now, of how you emotionally connect with your ability to create gainfully within the material world (aka money, things, long-term goals of your Desires). Capricorn, like Cancer, is a Cardinal quality sign – meaning the energy of these signs initiate CHANGE – like the seasons they represent – 00 degrees of Capricorn is the Winter Solstice timing, the beginning of Winter; 00 degrees of Cancer is the Summer Solstice timing, the beginning of Summer. New seasons, new weather (usually) therefore CHANGE.

DSC04507As I look through the 8 phases of this particular Moon cycle, I see that ALL the Cardinal signs are represented AND three of the Mutable signs (going with the flow, taking others into account due to changes in our own lives), with only one Fixed sign (dealing with the details and perhaps stubbornly resisting CHANGE). I conclude from this investigation that this Moon cycle is all about CHANGE AND Going With the Flow of whatever CHANGE we are allowing to come forth within our respective lives. The Last QTR Moon phase is where we’ll perhaps have a bit of stubborn resistance from the Ego-self.

Look back to July 4th – New Moon at 12 degrees Cancer 54′ – what House of Life Experience did the seed of unrealized potential begin to grow CHANGE Within you? What have you learned about yourself these past 2 weeks? Remember: the Moon symbolizes our Emotional Body nature – feelings, emotions, intuition, insights – the Feminine aspects of how we RECEIVE signs and symbols along the way of our respective Life Paths and Purpose.

The Sun, which dances with the Moon every cycle, is about our vital energy principle, the Masculine need to Take Action. This Moon cycle, with all that Cardinal energy wanting to initiate CHANGE, what ACTION to create CHANGE in your Life have you noticed? Or are you ignoring it, yet again?

Tuesday’s Full Moon, in Capricorn, brings these earthly practicalities to the fore:

  • Setting long-term goals towards – what exactly? In your world – what needs to CHANGE for you to acquire recognition, BE SEEN publicly, for what YOU contribute out in the world with your professional talents in tow?
  • Building UP a better foundation of material growth – what does this MEAN to you? What IS Material Growth in your mind? Security, safety, for future dry spells? Land, a home, stuff? Or is it less tangible?
  • BEing Responsible about how your Life is structured, limited, constricted, or allow in change by letting GO of some of the responsibilities you’ve taken on that truly ARE NOT yours to begin with! OR, have you been ignoring some aspects of your Life that as an adult you NEED to finally show up for and BE responsible for your actions, words, deeds, etc?
  • Capricorn is represented as the Mountain Goat – climbing ever higher along its path, perhaps taking paths less travelled or never explored before now. Hence the CHANGE – are you deciding, during tomorrow’s Full Moon, to finally GO UP that path that’s been beckoning you to travel, for how long now? Are you intuitively allowing yourself to SHOW UP, BE SEEN, in the areas of material gain/growth, publicly? Stand UP for what you BELIEVE IN, for YOUR Life Purpose?
  • Creating tangible results – by creating something NEW out of current resources you already possess, utilizing YOUR particular range and brand of talents and skills, that somehow TRANSFORMS (CHANGES) your perspective of how much HIGHER you CAN climb, BEYOND those previously held restrictions/limitations due to Ego-self fears.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn / Father Time / Kronos – hence those long-term goals – no short-cuts please! ‘Tis all about HOW you get there – not what you get in the end. Saturn is currently moving through Sagittarius – mutable Fire sign – BEing out in the world, discovering gems from other cultures that help you discern “Who Am I? Why Am I Here? What is My Purpose?” How is Saturn spiritually INspiring you to SEE your Life Purpose? Do you have blinkers on, blinders, or an open-minded In the Moment connection to your creative self? If you are too busy thinking about What Was, or worrying about WHAT MIGHT BE, how on earth (!!) can you possibly CREATE the NEW in the NOW?

Tomorrow, open your eyes, your heart, and your mind to ALL the NEW possible CHANGES that surround you. Change is all around us, always, in All Ways. If you take the moment to pause, breathe, and BE here while DOing….what will you find?

Blessed BE!
