Full Moon in Virgo: Serve to Let Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning!

Hi Everyone!

We’ve been experiencing the Full Moon since 8:53 a.m. MST this morning, February 19, 2019 at 00 degrees Virgo 42′ – in our mutable earth sign of the Zodiac. The Sun sat directly opposite, at 00 degrees Pisces 42′ – yes, the Sun entered Pisces as of 4:04 pm MST Monday!

cropped-gibbous2bmoon2bw2bjupiter2.jpgAnd we also have Mercury  + Neptune (ruler of Pisces) + Vesta in Pisces too! As of TODAY, we entered the pre-Mercury Rx (retrograde) SHADOW timing – those 2 weeks leading up to the actual Mercury Rx timing – within the mutable water sign of Pisces. We’ll be experiencing some vivid, technicolour dreams, high intuition, emotional feelings, and discerning how we may still be addicted to Drama (that Drama Triangle) in our lives over the next 2 months! I’ll post about this another day.

Within the chart of today’s Full Moon in Virgo, I see SEVERAL YOD’s, Fingers of God planetary formations – beckoning us all to Let Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning that we’ve been hanging onto for how many lifetimes now?! LOL!

Here’s a wee summary of each YOD:

  • Pointing to the SUN at 00 degrees of Pisces – soulfully, how are you connecting Within to your spiritual body/Higher Self these days? What have you been allowing to get in the way of this practice?
  • Pointing to the VERTEX at 02 degrees of Libra – something Destined/Fated this way comes – a relationship or partnership? Coming or going? Do you need to let one go to make room for a newer, better, healthier one?
  • Pointing to the Full Moon at 00 degrees of Virgo – how is your desire to Be of Service being Illuminated during this moon phase? And are you also INCLUDING Being of Service to the health of your Physical Body, not just to the daily work you do? How can you perfect this daily process? And not use Perfectionism as a delay tactic?
  • Pointing to Chiron now at 00 degrees of Aries – healing vs. editing how we Instinctually Take Action With the Physical Body. Ta Da! Announce that “I AM HERE PEOPLE!” and do it assertively vs. aggressively or as your Ego-self who wants to be made much of. Chiron helps us to heal any areas where we’re hypersensitive to feeling we’ll be rejected by others for BEing truly authentically ME! Embrace your uniqueness AND your authenticity – WHO ARE YOU, TRULY?

dsc05003Then we’re also experiencing FOUR areas of our lives in need of change – ALL AT THE SAME TIME! This comes from the continuing Cardinal Grand Square – hooking up planets in the 4 cardinal signs which always initiate much-needed CHANGE in our lives.

Here we have the following change players:

  • ERIS + URANUS in Aries – rebalancing our Inner Divine Feminine/Divine Masculine energies AND Unexpected Change to help us innovate/invent something NEW as we Pioneer & Explore new Inner roads of Self we hadn’t the courage to do before now.
  • NORTH NODE in Cancer – the direction our Collective Soul wishes to head into – where we shake off the mantles of Duty & Necessity – to take time to Nurture, smell the roses, play with the kids, see family & friends. It is NOT all about work, anymore!
  • PALLAS in Libra, Rx – our Wisdom from Within Feminine Asteroid – one of the 4 faces of Venus/the Goddess – how well are you balancing / equalizing / harmonizing with your own Inner Wisdom? And listening to it? And following it? MEN & WOMEN, both? The Rx (retrograde) direction means this will present itself rather personally for each of us. Where is Libra in your birth chart? THIS is where you’ll experience this change in your life.
  • Lastly, the SOUTH NODE + PLUTO in Capricorn – here Unresolved Issues from past lives, perhaps due to the need for Power & Control/Greed vs. Empowerment, creating a win-win for all involved? Since January 4th’s Solar Eclipse in Capricorn we’ve been experiencing, ever loudly, the INTEGRITY of how we and others DO business. Are you allowing your integrity to go by the wayside in order to keep the money rolling in? What are you allowing, from other’s demands of your time, energy & perhaps money, that is less than integral? Have you noticed others’ integrity issues? Have you spoken up about it? Capricorn also rules our Reputation out in the world. Take care of the BUSINESS of HOW you & others DO BUSINESS. Pluto’s been unearthing dirty secrets since 2007 in the wider world amongst all of our traditional institutions/corporations. He’ll continue to do so until 2024… no time like the present to make some CHANGE here yourself…

dsc05276VIRGO loves to know the rules of engagement – HOW do I DO this? Whatever THIS is. The need to BE perfect about it is how our Ego-self gets in the way to delay accomplishment, completion, putting projects to bed. Watch out for your Ego-self’s denials, delay tactics, fears to risk anything NEW to occur this Full Moon, while also allowing yourself to Let Go of those Old Patterns of Conditioning.

Love how these Moon cycles give us ample opportunity to LET GO, evolve Emotionally & Spiritually, as we feel our way forward, and as we are guided by our intuition. Be aware by becoming Conscious of your Ego-self’s manipulations along the way!

Invent & Innovate: New Moon in Aquarius!

Hi Everyone! Brrrr…bit of a Polar Vortex we are experiencing up here in Canada these days! Little snow for us in southern Alberta – not like last year at all. -36C with the windchill today…not used to real Winter lol!

On to warmer thoughts…the New Moon begins another Moon cycle today at 2:04 pm MST at 15 degrees of Aquarius 45′ – bringing in the fixed air element of community-mindedness, BEING your True Authentic Self within that community AND allowing yourself to invent/innovate Self and Others along the way!

Along with the New Moon phase initiating something NEW as our Future Selves bring forward innovation/invention into the NOW, it is interesting to note the following:

  • Uranus rules Aquarius (therefore rules this Moon cycle) and sitting at 28 degrees of Aries brings Unexpected Change into our Independent natures. Here the change could be Yes! Bring your uniqueness to the table AND I’ll bring my uniqueness too – let’s see how combining the two makes an even more unique scenario! Cool! This is where the inventiveness/innovation comes into play…Unexpectedly so…
  • Two other key planetary figures within Aries are influencing Uranus too –  ERIS & MARS (sister/brother) at 23 degrees of Aries – rebalancing our Inner Divine Feminine/Masculine energies AND taking Action accordingly – assertively vs. aggressively – bringing opportunity to Stand Your Ground about what YOU WANT TO HAPPEN this Moon cycle!
  • The Cardinal Grand Square continues, linking the North Node in Cancer to Pallas in Libra to Pluto in Capricorn to Eris/Mars + Uranus in Aries – so FOUR areas of our lives are asking for NEW ACTION, all at the same time! We’re healing from duty & necessity + rebalancing our Inner Wisdom access + transforming the integrity of how/with whom we do business + connecting with our True Authentic Selves assertively (with balanced Inner Feminine/Masculine energies) asking for what we want through timely Action. Whew!
  • Then there’s the YOD, Finger of God pointing to Pallas (Inner Wisdom we access) from the base planets/points of Juno in Taurus (the VALUES & WORTHINESS of committed/equal relationships/partnerships) learning to work well with Chiron sitting at 29 degrees of Pisces! Here’s where a LOT of healing ensues this Moon cycle/month – clearing us from that Drama Triangle of living in the roles of either (or all!) Victim – Rescue(r) – Bully/Persecutor/ed – by letting go of drama your life, connecting Within to your Divine Inner Feminine/Masculine energies AND Inner Wisdom (Higher Self) aspect – to listen to your intuition, how you feel at any given moment, and then take action accordingly. Chiron is asking us all to LET GO and HEAL the old ways of BEing…step off the Drama Triangle and BE Calm, Cool & Collected from Within, and therefore, Without…healthier energetic boundaries to set Within and Without (with others).
  • Lastly: the Grand Water Trine links the North Node in Cancer with Chiron in Pisces with the Vertex in Scorpio (something Fated/Destined this way comes!) to clear out deep-seated FEARS of TRUSTING the Divine Within you – what are you manifesting? Fear-oriented results, or trust-oriented ones? What’s coming up for you this week that is emotionally triggering the Drama Triangle + Fears? North Node in Cancer asks us, collectively, to head into the direction of LESS duty/necessity and MORE expression of how you TRULY FEEL, and allow that Life-Death-Rebirth transformation to propel you beyond fears/mistrust or whatever it is your Ego-self is manufacturing Within you this week/Moon cycle!

The SABIAN Symbol for this Moon cycle:

  • Symbol: A BIG BUSINESS-MAN AT HIS DESK
  • Keywords: There is much to organize for a large business or group. Perhaps you are unable to get directly involved in the situation, bringing a sense of alienation, but have to stay behind and do the organization. Making decisions and management. Being in charge and in control.
  • SHADOW aspect: Taking advantage of being put in charge. Bossing others.

Here’s where we can take care of the details, behind-the-scenes, within the business of Life, Work, Home, Self. Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) has caught up to Pluto (transformation of fears into Empowerment/win-win for all) in our cardinal earth sign of Capricorn (yes we continue to deal with the Capricorn New Moon/Solar Eclipse energies of January 5th). How well are you making those decisions, taking charge, for the good of all? Soul-oriented vs. Ego-self-oriented? Being of service…

I find it fascinating that we have these themes/energies at play during this Moon cycle and in this month, in this week. Bev Johnson-Bender and I are co-facilitating a new workshop Sunday, February 10th here in Okotoks, Alberta called: Business in Okotoks: How Do We Connect Within This Community/Family? We’re combining Astrology with Family & Ancestral Healing modalities. Innovation at its best!

Leading up to this workshop we’re dealing with interested parties who are facing trust and fear issues Within that are helping them to decide “Do I join in on this workshop, or don’t I? What’s my key blockage/issue to business success here in Okotoks? Will this workshop help me resolve/dissolve/heal it and move beyond it? Can I trust that this IS what I need for me, now?”

I ask all of you: what are you mis-trusting in your life/Within? What’s your fear? Where are you creating Drama in your life? Would you like to HEAL or at least SHIFT any or all of this? How can you innovate/invent something NEW in your life, that dovetails with YOUR TRUE AUTHENTIC SELF’s needs/desires? During this Moon cycle, listen to your feelings (all of them!) and breathe through and walk through them all – have a chat with your feelings – ask WHY are you here? By the 1st QTR Moon phase you’ll be asked to undergo a Crisis of Action – Do I or Don’t I? Make your decision, then Act – Leap of Faith?

I love the Moon cycles – they teach us to BE CONSCIOUS of our motivations, thoughts and feelings – all in aid of becoming conscious, more authentic and real. Re-invent your Daily Habits, your Inner world, and connect more solidly with your Within-Self / Higher Self / Future Self.

Namaste

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!

Full Moon in Aries: Warrior, Pioneer and/or Explorer?

We experienced the Full Moon in Aries (02 degrees Aries 00′ celestial longitude) Monday September 24th beginning at 8:52 pm MDT and were in the Full Moon phase until today as of 2:47 pm MDT.

Full Moon in Aries Sept 24 2018

Harvest Moon Sept 24, 2018

Full Moon is all about Illumination, AHA moments, shining a bright light upon a situation/circumstance occurring in your life that wasn’t quite clear up until this week. What became obvious for you?

Aries brings forth our Inner Warrior, riding to the rescue to take Action of some sort – initiating NEW change due to Aries being a cardinal fire sign – initiating something NEW in our lives that we’ve been neglecting until now. We will find that inner energy/fire to ACT upon instincts – no editing please! INSPIRed Action (In Spirit) coming from our spiritual self/higher self. We may not KNOW the WHY of what we MUST do at this time – somewhat like the Fool Card in Tarot. We’re about to take a journey into the Unknown…scary as that may seem to our wee Ego-self…it is TIME to

IMG_1533

Sheep River Pathway, Okotoks, AB

unearth that which we’ve been neglecting!

I say this – neglecting – because the Full Moon at 02 degrees of Aries 00′ activates our natal ERIS (sister to Mars) position in our charts/lives – for everyone born since March 10, 1925 until February 25, 1963! All of us Baby Boomers are being reminded, LOUDLY, of what we’ve been neglecting in our life that is key to Pioneer and/or Explore further – despite that element of the Unknown! We know not where this current journey will take us!

AND there is a deep HEALING occurring in this area we’ve neglected due to CHIRON sitting at 00 degrees of Aries 02′ Rx (retrograde) therefore making it PERSONAL – its energy draws inward, Within each of us, to heal how we’ve been editing our instinctual behaviors until now. Our Fear of being rejected for showing up, period. Wherever Aries is in your chart – here is where the AHA moment, with Healing, occurs.

What always amazes me is the TIMING of our planetary cycles – how each planet supports the upcoming cycle of another planet/luminary, on and on. We’re about to close another 19-month Venus Synodic cycle that BEGAN in ARIES! Here the Warrior Goddess has been assisting us to retool the energy of ARIES – removing the anger, bloodthirstiness and brutality – to replace it with Self-Love, Compassion, Standing Up for What we Truly Believe is RIGHT for the good of all – at this time.

IMG_1526

Sheep River, AB Canada

The Shadow side of Aries is “all about ME” attitudes – which is being played out right now between Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau and US President Trump. They forget what is for the Good of All in this tariff battle of words. Two boys in the sandbox – really?! Here the Ego-self shows itself OR we can choose to Pioneer a NEW inward path that we’ve not expressed/experienced before now – a personality expression that is softened, more loving and compassionate.

Which then leads to Exploration – of a new direction revealed in each of our lives, to SEE beyond the little self, to take action that supports beyond the individual, in time. The opposite sign is LIBRA (where the Sun now sits) beckoning us to bring back equilibrium, equality, justice, fairness, peace, harmony and LOVE – in partnership! Where’s the diplomacy, negotiation, and TRUth (!) PM TRUdeau/President TRUmp?

We have a few more hours of AHA moments to witness, face, and embrace before we enter the Disseminating Moon phase here early this afternoon. Look back at what has occurred this week, for you personally. What have you NEGLECTED in your life of late that is LOUDLY being presented for much-needed healing, now? BE HONEST with yourself, take time to heal, and take COURAGE as you Pioneer new ways of BEing Within yourself, while you Explore new directions that have opened up because you took that new/renewed action.

Namaste

New Moon in Aries – Spring Into New Action!

ariessymbol

Aries glyph

Hi All! It’s been a whole Moon cycle since I last blogged – a lot has been happening in my personal and professional world since.

I have created a totally NEW blogsite – Laurie Rae’s House of Astrology – and the link is here Laurie Rae’s House of Astrology.

I have written today’s New Moon in Aries post therein too – take a look! If you wish to continue to receive my Cosmic Weather posts, please add your email to the House of Astrology list. I look forward to seeing you all there.

In the meantime, I take this opportunity to say a heartfelt “THANK YOU!” to all of my current followers of Rainbows and Astrology. I believe I needed to ‘bridge’ pieces of myself since returning to Calgary from Vancouver Island in 2013 through those rainbows (!) and feel I have finally arrived to a new place Within myself here in 2017.

It could be my 2nd Saturn Return timing in January 2017 (!) or this New Moon in Aries cardinal fire energy wanting to step out in a brand new way – or a combination of both.

I am finding my way forward again after several years of caregiving within our wee family here in Calgary. We are all doing fine and our middle sister Tamra is still amongst us.

Onward and Upward Everyone! I look forward to seeing you all at Laurie Rae’s House of Astrology soon!

Many heartfelt HUGS and much Love Light,

Most sincerely,

New Moon in Aquarius: Innovating

dsc05288Hi All! The last Moon cycle was quite a ride with Mercury Rx (Retrograde) bringing forth much-needed goal-setting changes of mindsets! Talk about having a month’s worth of New Year’s Resolutions to sort through! LOL!

The current Moon cycle began with the New Moon phase on January 27th at 5:08pm MST at the following astrological coordinates: 08 degrees of Aquarius 15′ (think of these coordinates as cosmic longitude to navigate within your Birth Chart!). Here BOTH the Moon and Sun sat together at the same place in time, initiating yet another new cycle of something NEW this way comes!

Aquarius is the fixed air sign, signifying originality, innovation, community, and truly standing IN your True Self orientation! And if you’re not quite sure what your True Self is all about, keep watching, listening, feeling and intuiting yourself this full Moon cycle to gain insights about yourself!

Aquarius brings forth our Future Self into the NOW, with all her/his bright and original ideas! So if you’re inspired to explore, talk and/or write about some aspect of you, your life, or how you’d like your life to now BE, this is the Moon cycle to share it within your community of peeps.

dsc05324Each Moon cycle brings forth inner awareness, consciously, to the surface. What is hidden within the dark moments of the New Moon is some aspect of your Ego-mind Self that doesn’t want to BE in the Light (conscious) before now. Each Moon cycle brings themes, via the astrological sign it is in, and the connections the Moon/Sun make to the other planets in our solar system, at the moment of the New Moon phase – always the new beginning after the ending of the previous Moon cycle.

Aquarius, within the natural wheel of Astrology, rules the 11th House – what wishes and dreams do you have for your near future? Who are the people in your life supporting those dreams and who are not? What ‘community’ are you joining to those ends? As in groups, memberships, circle of friends and colleagues? Look around you to ‘see’ the outer mirror reflected back to you – namely the people in your life. They represent YOU in the outer world, a reflection of YOUR inner world/connection of your True Self. Cool!

Looking at this New Moon cycle’s chart I see the following connections between the Moon/Sun and:

  • The North Node in the mutable earth sign of Virgo, Rx: here we have some old patterns of conditioning that need to be let go of at some point this Moon cycle in order to embrace the forward-moving direction our Souls wish us to move into re: being of service (aka work, volunteering, hobbies) out in our respective worlds. Watch out for that perfectionism/procrastination distraction that the Ego-mind Self can get caught up in to avoid change in your life! The Rx (Retrograde) signifies something deeply personal – we take it personally – until the charge of whatever it is we need to let go of is healed and let go of.
  • The Part of Fortune – our Joy: this sensitive point is in the fixed fire sign of Leo. Here our Joy is about the fun and play of Creativity, being that innocent nature child, creating just for the fun of it! Leo also rules the heart and back – heartfully, do you have your back? As in are you supporting yourself in your Joy? Do you know what Joy feels like? The connection with the Moon/Sun this cycle is an opposition whereby we can continue to be polarized between being fixed on MY innovations OR being fixed in creating what I WANT! How about creating an ‘AND’ here? BE innovative and original (Aquarius) AND creative WITH others? As in your community. And this goes way beyond art folks! How are you creating community, with laughter, fun and play, in your world?

dsc05342Interestingly, this New Moon doesn’t make any other direct connections with any of the other planets. The Cardinal Grand Square formation of planets within the 4 cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) is still in play! Here are the characters initiating much-needed CHANGE in your life:

  • Uranus + Eris in the cardinal fire sign of Aries: at 20 and 22 degrees of Aries – Unexpected Change to typical gender roles continues. Our inner Warrior and Pioneer selves are still undergoing major transformation – drinking from that cup of Courage (Aries) to BE authentic within your own body! As in being comfortable in your own skin! BE YOU! No matter the gender – be YOU! Uniqueness in this world IS the goal. Not to be feared or hidden away. Doing so brings forth the need for addictions, distractions and such from our Ego-mind Self to keep it all in the fear frame, to be hidden away. Why? What’s so scary about BEing You anyway? Truly. And being in a woman’s body or man’s body doesn’t mean either gender is Less Than…and it never has. Yet another myth to be dispelled, which both Eris and Uranus have been dancing together about since 2012 especially!
  • Vesta in the cardinal water sign of Cancer, Rx: at 25 degrees of Cancer – here the feeling body (ruled by the Moon!) brings forth a concentrated focus on how you feel those emotions, take notice of your intuition, and whatever symbolism and insights that complete the picture of your Inner Life. Live from the Inside-Out! BE the feeling body you truly are – stop running away from feeling those feelings! Make peace with your Ego-mind Self’s need to do that Flight or Fight regimen that no longer gains us anything (unless of course we are in the middle of some real danger, then yes please – run!). Perceived danger is different from real danger. If your physical life isn’t about to be taken – then what are you running away from? Ask that Ego-mind Self, “What ARE you afraid of here? How can I help? What do you need to feel safe?” Cancer also brings forth issues of our family of origin, Mom, mothering and nurturance. How well have you been nurturing/loving You? Hhhhmmm….
  • Jupiter in the cardinal air sign of Libra: at 23 degrees of Libra – here we are being called to EXPAND our realm of relationships and partnerships beyond current boundaries we’ve set up since who knows how long. Could be you decide to end some relationships – or at least change them – because they haven’t been working for you or with you for some time now. Could be some are co-dependency rather than inter-dependent or intra-dependent? Interesting to delve into and ‘see’ the reality of them now. Libra is an air sign – so journal, chat and think about it all.
  • Pluto + Mercury in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn: at 17 and 15 degrees of Capricorn – we are still undergoing a HUGE transformation, mindfully, of how we set goals towards our respective material gain in the world. Via career, work, volunteering – whatever it is that has you out and about in the world to gain materially, literally, physically. Any earth sign means being tactile, hands-on and wanting to SEE the fruits of our labours! In current society, “Money, Money, Money!” For those of us struggling with continued unemployment, what used to be very important is not anymore. Keeping up with the Jones’s (who were they again?) or what others think (!) isn’t necessary, and never was. BEing unemployed for long periods of time is humbling, bringing forth resourcefulness and thinking outside the box in order to survive and thrive despite money hardships (aka debt). Allow this transformation to continue – you will see changes in mindsets here, continuing this Moon cycle (we started it around the last Full Moon). And when the Ego-mind Self gets in the way, you’ll see power and control issues coming forth! The best outcome is EMPOWERMENT – self and others create a ‘win-win’ for all! Which is what Capricorn wants!

Check out these cosmic longitude coordinates within your birth chart to see what 4 areas of your life are being renewed with NEW initiatives since the last Full Moon! Interesting how we continue to work out strategies for ourselves from one Moon cycle to the next.

dsc05321Saturn + Vertex + Juno are all together in the late degrees of Sagittarius (24, 25 and 28, respectively). Here we are seeking our Higher Truth via how our lives are structured (Saturn), fateful/destined events/people in our lives (Vertex) and truly envisioning relationships/partnerships of equality (Juno). Sagittarius beckons us to stand on our Hill of Now, look back to where we’ve been, contemplate how we’ve arrived into the NOW, then turn to face our Future Hills of Now – which Hill or Hills are beckoning you forward into new territory and journeys? What IS True for You? Truly. Authentic. Original. Innovative. Bring ALL of these aspects of You to the table this Moon cycle. BE all that you can BE!

Today, the Crescent Moon cycle begins at 9:30a MST at 27 degrees of Pisces 00′ – mutable water – showing a wee bit of Light shining into that unconscious Darkness I spoke of earlier. What is it that your Ego-mind Self is afraid to have uncovered this Moon cycle? The Crescent Moon phase means there will be a struggle between the OLD and the NEW. Something old is dying, emotionally, Within you. Will you allow it to or will you hold onto it a while longer? Pisces brings forth any issues of that Drama Triangle (victim or rescuer or persecution) that we may be hanging onto. Find the House where Pisces resides in your birth chart to know where this “victimhood, I want to be rescued! And I feel persecuted / bullied” mindset of the Ego comes into play in your world. That “o woe is me” tape.

dsc05367Also today (!) Venus regains her Crown of Authority at 28 degrees of Pisces too! The Crown chakra indicates our connection to the Divine, our Spiritual self or Higher Self, angels, God – whatever your spiritual beliefs are – here we regain that connection in a totally renewed way! Venus represents our Desire Body – what do you truly desire, spiritually, for yourself now?

You know where I am if you’re curious to unearth the mystery of your Inner Self via Astrology!

Full Moon in Cancer: Cardinal Grand Square…

dsc05155Initiating something NEW (Cardinal) and with Illumination (Full Moon) intuition, feeling, and sensitivity (Cancer). The Moon rules the cardinal sign of Cancer – therefore highly sensitive feelings being dealt with during the Full Moon phase which begins at 4:35a MST January 12th and lasts until the Disseminating Moon phase, January 15th at 4:48p MST.

The coordinates for this first Full Moon of 2017: 22 degrees Cancer 27′ – where does this reside within your birth chart? Here is where the Full Moon reflects the unconscious desires of the Soul (Sun) – what are yours?

Cancer themes, as a cardinal water sign, bring the following:

  • Family: Mom, mothering, nurturance experienced as a child and how you seek it now. The relationship you have currently with your Mother – or what you may miss right now because she has passed over. Whatever the situation, know that this phase will be highly sensitive for everyone involved. All conversation, however heartfully meant, may still be misconstrued in some way. Be aware of HOW you communicate your needs at this time. And perhaps there is a message you wish to send to the loved ones passed on – do so if it is what you need for yourself at this time. How does your Home environment, now, bring forth feelings from your home of origin? Is something missing now that needs to be revisited and brought back up to the surface, into the Now?
  • Possessiveness/Neediness: the Shadow side of Cancer – holding onto someone or something far longer than necessary – prevents others from moving on with their own life. And prevents you from moving on with your own. This can also come about as co-dependent relationships – being overly needy – leaning on others rather than standing up for yourself, within your own life.
  • Emotional Needs: how well do you listen to your feelings? When you notice them, what is your first reaction? Run and hide from them? Feel them? Walk through them, no matter their intensity? Distract yourself with food, TV, online games, any addictions? This is avoidance of feeling that which we are meant to feel – deeply, widely, heartfully. Humans must learn to feel it all – it is our destiny, our reason for being here on Earth. The more we run away from these feelings and emotions, the less we are being authentically Self. Being compassionate and showing empathy goes a long way to connecting with someone who feels vulnerable at this time – including yourself!
  • Children: the ability to conceive, to carry a child to term, to give birth – to someone or something – you feel strongly about! Nurturance comes forth here again too. How do you nurture your Inner Child Self? Do you hug yourself, daily? Love Thyself As Thy Neighbour…take care of Self first, then others in your life. Most important to do so.
  • Physically, Cancer Rules: the breasts and chest cavity, the pancreas, the stomach, stomach gas and ulcers, and tumours. According to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) the element of Earth, ruled by Saturn, governs the Spleen, Stomach, and Pancreas. We affect these organs by overthinking things or not liking new ways of doing our life. The Development Stage here is TRANSFORMATION. So if you worry, or “find it difficult ‘digesting new ideas’ there will be issues with your blood sugar, digestion, and being ANGRY at this time. Are you misplacing your faith in your own ability to control the physical world around you? The Pancreas has a dual function (both an Exocrine and Endocrine gland) hence reflects the duality of the physical Universe – the ability to digest ideas AND to extract that which is not only sweet, but Life sustaining too” [compassionatedragon.com]. What is it you need that sustains you? Do you know what it is? What will this Full Moon Illuminate for you in this regard?

dsc05269The planetary players within the Cardinal Grand Square formation during this Full Moon phase, creating stress and tension Within to assist us to create CHANGE in our respective lives, are:

  • Full Moon at 22 degrees Cancer 28′: bringing forth all of the above mentioned themes. This is our Emotional Body’s connection and daily habits we’ve formed.
  • Sitting opposite, the Sun at 22 degrees Capricorn 27′: here the unconscious desires of our respective Souls are being Illuminated. Think back to December 28th’s New Moon in Capricorn – what was hidden within the Darkness of your Ego-Self that now has emerged into the Light of this Full Moon? What was it your Ego-Self was so afraid of to be known by you, consciously, before now? Capricorn rules how we DO material gain in our lives, the goals we set for the long-term, our reputation within our careers, and being ruled by Saturn – all the responsibilities we’ve gathered for us to be busy with. Is it time to let go of some of those responsibilities? Have your goals in fact changed? Within the Full Moon – the Moon’s emotional nature can be polarized with the Sun’s active nature, creating a push-pull situation – and more stress Within! Do I feel or do I act? How about learning to do BOTH? Create an ‘AND’ here – feel your feelings, listen to your intuition AND then take the action your Soul seeks! And Pluto is near to the Sun for this Full Moon – bringing forth any/all issues of power and control. The key here is EMPOWERMENT – for all parties involved. A win-win situation, heartfully.
  • Squaring to both the Moon and the Sun is Jupiter at 22 degrees Libra 11′: Since September 10, 2016, Jupiter has been expanding our boundaries within the realms of partnerships and relationships. Making it LOUD and clear what is MISSING in your life at this time. The last time Jupiter was in Libra – September 2004 until near the end of October, 2005 – what was going on within your partnerships and relationships at that time? 12 years later (one complete cycle of Jupiter) you may find those same issues of moving beyond restrictive boundaries you unconsciously set for yourself are  coming forth once more. Or, perhaps you already made the changes since then? How many of you married in 2004/05 or found ‘the love of your life’? Is he/she still in your life? Or are you seeking that love, yet? Or have you lost that love? Grief is the process of coping with ALL human emotions seemingly occurring all at once! It can be overwhelming, all-consuming, and ongoing (when will it all stop and be over?). A person doesn’t have to die for us to grieve their absence in our life. Whatever is leftover from any past relationship or partnership needs to be healed, now.
  • In opposition to Jupiter, and squaring to both the Moon and the Sun, is Eris at 22 degrees of Aries 32′: partnered closely by Uranus at 20 degrees Aries 39′ and Ceres at 24 degrees Aries 28′! Talk about a vanguard here – Eris has been systematically assisting us with gender re-balancing – empowerment for both genders, equally. Hence all the wars going on in in the world since Eris entered Aries in 1925! Equality of the feminine and the masculine is riddled with complex machinations. Uranus brings forth innovation and Unexpectedness, while Ceres asks for nurturance, end of. Since WWI women have slowly been taking their power back, in the workplace, creating discord and imbalance at home because SHE isn’t staying home anymore! Look at the transformation WORK has taken since 1925, and the almighty Dollar, and Careers are not just for men! How are we doing today? Aries brings forth the Spiritual Warrior – asserting ourselves, no matter the gender, to BE seen and heard. Aries brings forth the Pioneer and the courage to BE unique in our respective worlds. How are YOU doing with all of this? What massive changes have you undergone, especially since 2012’s connection of Eris with Pluto and Uranus? Talk about transformation. How independent are you, truly, today? Is it more inter-dependent? Intra-dependent? Or still co-dependent? Hhhmmm…

dsc05276So what’s the bottom line here folks? Emotional sensitivity + feeling those feelings and emotions + taking time to listen to your intuitive insights of next steps forward so that your Sun/Soul self can take that Action into the Light of this Full Moon. To create NEW CHANGE within your life! All four cardinal signs, therefore the cardinal points of the chart, are being affected here: Self + Home + Relationships/Partnerships + Career.

Jupiter wants you to expand OUT of bounds into new relationships and partnerships. Ceres and Eris and Uranus continue to call to us for greater self-nurturance AND equality AND allowing our true authentic selves to BE seen and heard! Pluto continues to transform our ongoing battle with power and control (!!) be it with our Ego-self, our partners/friends, neighbours, family members – whomever shows up to show us what it is that we are still hanging onto, from the Darkness Within, that needs to be healed, to grow and evolve into more loving, accepting, compassionate and empathetic BEings aka human beings!

Blessed BE and Namaste!
