Full Moon in Libra: Relating & Balancing

Good Friday, April 19, 2019 we’ll experience a Full Moon at 29 degrees of Libra 07′ at 5:13 am MDT. The Sun will be sitting opposite the Moon at 29 degrees of Aries 07′. The Illumination we’ll be faced with in this Moon phase? Ending a cycle of knowing WHO I AM, What DO I Want? & then noticing HOW TRULY DO I SHOW UP IN MY RELATIONSHIPS? What we SEE during this Full Moon will be about Me, Myself & I AND ME Within the WE – are they the same or do you hide your True Authentic Self away when you’re with Others?

cropped-gibbous2bmoon2bw2bjupiter2.jpgBoth Libra (Air element) and Aries (Fire element) are our Cardinal signs signalling a NEW CHANGE – renewed changes if you will – as we say Goodbye to aspects of the little self that have prevented MORE of our True Authentic Self/Higher Self from shining through, before now.

Remember, in Astrology, it is all about the energy of cycles. The Moon represents our Emotional Body’s cycles of feelings, intuition, receiving, looking for symbols/symbolism and meaning – the deeper truths. How we are evolving emotionally this lifetime.

The Sun represents our Soul Self – that vital part of ourselves, eternally burning and shining brightly – as we show up to take evolving creative action in this life.

The dance between the Moon and Sun (feminine/masculine, light/dark, deep/surface) brings forth key timings during the 8 phases of each Moon cycle. As the Moon and Sun sit opposite one another over the next several days, see yourself sitting Within that opposition. What are you SEEING, now, about this opposite part of you? Are you familiar with it? Are you SEEING this for the very first time? What are you noticing? What are you feeling?

5CD23A34-EA52-4A87-86F7-381D7A137FF1Libra brings balance, equilibrium, peace, harmony and the need to SEE the beauty of all things/people around you – including yourself! The Shadow side of Libra – indecision, not opening up to others, talking things through. Hiding yourself by not speaking up.

Venus (our Desire Body) rules Libra, and currently sits within our Spiritual Water sign of Pisces – sending an energy line to this Full Moon whereby we are asked to Let Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning as we continue to hold on to the last vestiges of the Drama Triangle role-play (Victim-Rescue(r)-Bully/Persecutor). How many of these roles does your Ego-self LOVE playing/projecting that get in the way of you TRULY DESIRING what you want most out of your life? As in TRULY LIVING IT? Hence this current indecision…can I possibly LET GO of the drama, and ALLOW myself to LIVE my true life?

Venus also rules our Values, Worthiness, Personal Resources we bring to the table that support our efforts to create abundance, bounty and prosperity. If we don’t value ourselves, who will? If what we DO in life is not valued, what else will we do? Spiritual VALUE is key here – do you value yourself, spiritually, or just by how much money you make, things you accumulate, status you attain? Another AND is required vs. either/or.

82510719-BBCD-45B1-99B0-51206BB54151Aries brings the need for instinctual action, without editing it with wondering/worry, indecision. Here we can tap into impatience, anger, frustration and those impulsive leaps into greater self-sabotage if we’re NOT listening to our Inner Wisdom via Intuition. Sometimes LEAPING without taking a moment to FEEL/INTUIT the decision can be an indication of an Ego-self choice vs. a true authentic Soul-Self choice.

Aries brings out our Inner Warrior to assert self (vs. aggressively so). Here we’ve been tapping into our Inner Explorer and Pioneer since New Moon April 5th – what NEW avenues of your Inner Self have you viewed, connected with? Is there a part of you that needs deeper examination? What will you LET GO OF these next several days that no longer serves your Soul Self?

Mars rules Aries and is currently taking action with our mutable Air sign of Gemini – actively gathering information and data as you interact with key Others in your life. What are you learning about yourself within these relationships/conversations? How does this information bring key AHA moments, timely informative Next Steps to take further Action upon?

The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon (from: The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle by Lynda Hill & Richard Hill, 1995) is as follows:

  • Symbol: THREE MOUNDS OF KNOWLEDGE ON A PHILOSOPHER’S HEAD
  • Keynote: “There is ability here, to read spiritual understandings into concrete objects. Several different aspects can be combined to result in a truly wise outcome. Being able to pierce through appearances to see the truth of a situation. Being able to bring abstract truths into reality. Concentration on questions of a philosophical nature. LOOK TO THE SIGNS.
  • SHADOW: analysing things too much and reliance on intellect.

IMG_6669Know your Shadow side AND your Light side – equally well – and learn to LOVE both too! No Either/Or’s here…create an AND to heal the division Within. BE YOU, and, BE YOU with Others. Lovingly, openly, truly.

Enjoy your Emotional Body AND your Mental Body too. Western society covets the mind over the heart way too much. An imbalance if you will.

This Full Moon is at 29 degrees of two Cardinal signs – meaning an END of a CYCLE – mentally and as you RELATE to yourself and Others. HOW you’ve been DOING, YOU. What are you ending? And what are you about to begin, ANEW?

Blessed BE! Namaste

Warrior Action & Balanced Emotions…

It’s been a bit of a roller-coaster ride since February 19th when the Sun entered Pisces (00 degrees), joining Mercury and Neptune (sitting at 15 degrees). Then the New Moon began at 15 degrees (Moon and Sun together) as of March 6th, with Mercury newly Stationed Retrograde (Rx). The Pre-Rx Shadow period of Mercury began February 19th too…bringing us all into a Mental Body, Emotional Body and Spiritual Body journey.

IMG_8223Dreaming, imagining, drama, victim-oriented thoughts/feelings, seemingly swimming, floating and feeling our way forward ever since! Pisces is our mutable Water energy element – ability to go with the flow – of energy, thoughts, dreams, feelings, intuition – whatever floated your boat! No straight lines of logic here! Circular, spiral, rippling towards the eventual seemingly necessary destination – of what? Where were you headed mid-February and where have you ended up now? Was the journey getting here better than you could have imagined? Magical even? Unexpected twists, turns, connections, disconnections, reconnections along the way?

Today we have TWO Astrological events happening:

  • The Sun leaves watery mystical spiritual Pisces (and the last sign of Winter!!) at 3:59 pm MDT to enter the cardinal FIRE of Aries at 00 degrees – bringing forth courage, assertiveness, warrior energy, pioneering and exploring new areas of your Inner You to create NEW Action outwardly these next 3 months until Summer Solstice. So begins the Vernal or Spring Equinox and the season of Spring! Snows are melting, birds are chirping, greening is just waiting to burst forth – especially here in the Canadian Western prairie regions where we’ve undergone a frigid Polar Vortex for weeks on end. A Blessing as Winter ends.
  • The Moon moves directly opposite the Sun 4 hours later at 00 degrees of Libra at 7:42 pm MDT, to become the Full Moon, bringing ILLUMINATION, a spotlight, upon the need for Emotional Balance. The Full Moon reflects the Unconscious Desires of the Sun. What could a Fiery Sun be reflecting in the Light of the Full Moon in Air?
  • This day the Sun is in Aries– Fire, New Beginnings, Self-Focus, Innocence/Authenticity, Self-discovery, Independence, Courage, and Disengaging Self-Absorption (according to Jan Spiller’s New Moon Astrology);
  • and the Full Moon is in Libra– Air, Union/Marriage, Negotiation Skills, Harmony, Sociability / diplomacy, Refinement, and Healing co-dependency. Those close one-on-one relationship conversations you’ve been meaning to follow up on.

IMG_5162The Sabian Symbols for these two events are as follows (from Lynda Hill & Richard Hill’s The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle):

  • Sun’s entry into Aries: A Woman Has Risen Out of the Ocean, A Seal is Embracing Her– new understandings and awareness are coming to light. Something new is emerging and it needs to be welcomed and nurtured. This is the beginning of a whole new impulse, creative and responsive. Emergence of a whole new potentiality. Emergence of the feminine into concrete manifestation. SHADOW: using the masculine drive to overshadow the emotions. Refusing to move into a new state of being because one is held back by previous life conditions.
  • Moon’s entry into Libra: A Butterfly Preserved and Made Perfect With a Dart Through It beauty in shape or from has been frozen in one moment, denying the natural process of decay. An archetypal death is symbolized, perfection through sacrifice. As inspiring as this process can be, this can bring difficulties in moving on or changing the situation. Perfection and beauty made immortal. SHADOW: stopping others from growth and change for personal satisfaction or needs. Surrender and immobilisation.

Here we MUST embrace our Feminine side AND allow the Death of an ideal we witnessed and perhaps wished to experience MORE of during the Pisces journey. It is time to come into the sunlight, deal with reality AND BE MORE of our Spiritual self whilst listening in to our Feminine gifts (men and women both!) of feelings, intuition, insights, receiving rather than doing/acting. The acting comes AFTER we receive the Wisdom from Within. Not before…the before action comes from Ego-self wanting to DO SOMETHING NOW! Chomping at the bit so-to-speak.

426ECBEE-5D25-4B6F-B085-2855038969A7Enjoy the new sap of energy coursing through your veins, yes! Take note of the creative inspirations of whatever NEW creative ideas are coming your way, yes! AND be PATIENT. Aries can bring Impatience. Libra can bring INDECISION. Weigh and measure the pros and cons – yet don’t overthink – you may miss out on that NEW opportunity!

Create an “AND” as much as possible this week and these next 3 months. It doesn’t have to be Either/Or. We can have BOTH. Namaste

March Madness: Endings & Beginnings!

Today the New Moon – when the Moon & Sun stand together – begins at 9:05 a.m. MST, within 15 degrees of Pisces 47′ celestial longitude – our mutable Water sign of the Zodiac.

c2238-balloons2band2borbsPisces brings the MAGIC, the MOVIES and the ILLUSIONS…

Pisces represents our Spiritual Body, while the Moon is our Emotional Body and the Sun our Soul body. Interesting dance of how we DO our Spiritual practice, connecting Inward/Within to centre, ground, and listen to our innate Wisdom, while we end something significant in our life. What will you be ending in your life this month?

Neptune, ruler of Pisces, stands beside the Moon/Sun duo, along with Vesta – one of the 4 Feminine Asteroids – at 16 degrees of Pisces. This combo brings forth IMAGINATION + FOCUSED ATTENTION close to home & hearth.

Bringing up the rear, at the 29th degree of Pisces, is our Mercury Rx (retrograde) freshly Stationed Rx as of yesterday! Mercury represents our Mental body, and in the Rx motion, is taking a Vacation from Logic, diving deeply into the waters of creative imagination, thinking outside the box, following intuitive hits of insight for Next Step actions, while FEELING your way forward along the way…

Yes, let the March Madness begin!

Looking at the chart for this New Moon cycle, I see the details of the following:

  • There is something FATED/DESTINED this month – whereby as we all Let Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning, we clarify, focus upon, and Imagine our ‘Garden of Eden’ or Paradise down here on Earth. Truly, we can and will. What, in your Wildest Dreams, have you always dreamed of manifesting for your life? NOW is the time to do so.
  • Part of the Letting Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning – will be that Shadow piece of Pisces, left over from the Old Age of Pisces – that DRAMA TRIANGLE role-play merry-go-round of VICTIM – RESCUE(R) – BULLY/PERSECUTOR. The more you become conscious of how you PLAY at DRAMA in your life, and with the people in your life, the more you will realize how this cycle perpetuates smallness, ‘less-than’ thinking and being. Question is: once conscious of any/all of these roles your Ego-self likes to play, are you now READY, WILLING & WANT TO…Let It All Go?
  • The other part of Letting Go of Old Patterns of Conditioning – will be our attachment to our Addictions, avenues for Escapism, Avoidance, Denial, Resistance – you name it, the Ego-self can be relentless in its efforts to keep the status quo – “Why bring in change? Why upset the apple cart of my current life? It’s all okay, really, it is!” Here’s where we can decide, in the face of the loudness of HOW our respective addictions show up to distract, deny et al our Soul’s need to expand and be more in our lives – can you SEE how the addiction(s) keep you from BEING your True Authentic Self/Highest & BEST Self? Here is where the MIND MOVIES come in…the ILLUSIONS or DELUSIONS our respective Ego-Self brings forth to keep us within that Victimization role, wanting/needing/begging to be Rescued (or doing the Rescuing for Others!), or turning to Bullying/Persecuting Others from our pain point of Victim – because hey, I’d rather NOT feel that pain point, so I’ll just project it onto someone else, ‘k? This is how the Ego-self works – and the Drama in the world works. Via pain, perpetuating it, growing it, nurturing it – along that Drama Triangle.
  • Interestingly, the KEY to coming OFF that Drama Triangle? Is meditation, yoga, Nature walks (as examples) anything that brings you back INTO yourself, Within, to face your True Self/Higher Self – to BE one WITH yourself. Centred, calm, grounded, released from the hampster wheel of perpetual running away from/chasing your pain points. The more we connect Within, embrace our Spiritual Self/Higher Self – understand and accept that you are Eternal – that there is more beyond this physical body on this physical earth plane – there will no longer be a NEED to chase or run – OUTSIDE OF SELF.
  • Question is: What are you running from? What are you chasing? Both of these bring all of us OUTSIDE of ourselves, into the Drama, into the victim, rescue me, I feel bullied mindset – that is all just an illusion set up in the mental body (Mind Movies) via the Ego-self to NOT allow in change….we ALL do this in some regard. It is part of the human condition. Are you READY, WILLING & WANT TO…change it? Move beyond this illusion/delusion that keeps you from IMAGINING a Better, Truer life beyond the drama?

dsc05095Chiron, the Healer of our Woundedness, has entered Aries and sits at 00 degrees Aries 54′ – cardinal Fire, beckoning a NEW CYCLE of HOW we instinctively ACT, without editing our actions due to fear of being rejected by others for doing so. Chiron, doing the healing “cleanup on aisle 5” after Uranus’ journey through Aries (May 29, 2010 – March 5, 2019) whereby we learned to allow our innovative/inventive Authentic Self/Maverick side to show up as we learned to Pioneer and Explore new avenues Within that we had no idea existed OR were frightened to experience, before 2010!

Look back over these past 9 years (note that this dovetails with the 9-year cycle of Numerology!) and take stock of yourself: Where were you in 2010? What were you DOING (action) back then, compared to now? How were you living your independent life, learning all about ME, MYSELF & I? How are you living it, NOW? Do you see the difference in yourself? The growth, and spiritual maturity?

Whatever trauma, pain and/or suffering you’ve experienced along the way will now be Healed, via Chiron’s journey through Aries these next 8 years (until April 2017). Allow the pain of separation, of not feeling okay to BE ME authentically (and this does NOT mean you need to hide yourself away from others while doing so) – come OUT of the ISOLATION! It is time to BE ME within the WE – as in any relationship or partnership you’ve been hiding away from experiencing! It is OKAY to BE YOU. Straight up!

New Moon Solar Eclipse 2015

Uranus has moved from Aries into Taurus and sits at 00 degrees Taurus 01′ heralding another NEW CYCLE of values, worthiness, our connection to the energy of MONEY, how we create opportunities for bringing income into our lives. Times they have been changing, drastically, since Pluto began its Transformative journey through Capricorn (ruler of ambition, goals, traditional work/business practices) since early 2007 (until 2024!). Both Taurus and Capricorn are Earth signs – being grounded, practical, hands-on to create/make something new or renewed in our lives.

Taurus does NOT like change! Uranus is ALL ABOUT CHANGE – Unexpectedly so! For the next 7 years, I expect, due to Technology (Uranus rules Tech!) we’ll experience some drastic change in our monetary systems. Could it be that futuristic idea of credits will replace paper money? Could it be we will transform what we thought to be of value, worth and effort – will we look back fondly to what was a tactile, “I can FEEL this money in my hands” era as it morphs into something more virtual/unseen? How will a fixed Earth sign like Taurus FEEL and DEAL with this? Seeing is believing, according to the earth signs!

Do you know, today, what your values are? What do you value? What is worth your time, energy and money? How worthy are your current skills, talents and resources you have that help you “bring home the bacon”? Considering how many industries have died over the last 5-10 years, so quickly, quietly almost, we find ourselves scrambling to catch up with quick-changing technology, new ways of reinventing ourselves to BE current, employed/self-employed…on and on…

Interesting how Apple shares have had a time of it since the beginning of 2019 – technology itself – and how it is able to keep its shareholders happy, money-wise. HHHmmm….what’s next on the horizon? We will soon see, experience and deal with it all.

Yes, the March Madness, indeed! Endings, new Beginnings…Letting Go of the Old ways of coping/hiding/denying…Welcoming in the New Ways of Expecting Change, valuing it, Healing our pain points along the way. Way to go March –  in like a Lion indeed!

Accelerated Heartfelt Emotions…Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in LEO!

At 10:16 pm MST tonight, Sunday January 20th, 2019, we’ll experience the exact timing of the Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse at 00 degrees of Leo 52′.

During a Total Lunar Eclipse, we undergo a Full Moon-to-New Moon-back to Full Moon cycle of emotions, within 5 hours! Approximately 2.5 hours prior to 10:16 pm and for 2.5 hours thereafter…be AWARE of, CONSCIOUS of, and WHAT IS YOUR INTENTION (?!) emotionally, during this Total Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon timing – because what you FEEL will be ACCELERATED…and carry on forward these next 3.5 years…

In other words: feelings of JOY, LOVE, COMPASSION, FORGIVENESS, PEACE, RAGE, ANGER, FRUSTRATION, DEPRESSION, FEAR, SADNESS, GRIEF….will all be cycled through you, at an accelerated rate, and the chief feeling will also BE something you carry forward with you for the next 3.5 -5 years – a year for every hour of the Eclipse…

LEO is our fixed fire sign of (according to Jan Spiller’s New Moon Astrology):

  • Love & Romance
  • Creativity
  • Generosity
  • Celebration & Fun & Play
  • Dignity
  • Determination
  • Tempering Arrogance
  • Physically Ruling: the heart, back, spine, exhaustion/heat exhaustion, and inflammation.

Any Ego-self Shadow pieces can be left at the door today. Temper the anger, I’m the King/Queen of the Castle arrogance, and connect further with your HEART. Be HEARTFELT, feel it HEARTFULLY, and bring your HEART to the table. Stand up for yourself, and support your heartfelt needs/desires – WITH HEART – vs. drama/arrogance. See the difference? How you RESPOND vs. REACT is key – yet, keep on FEELING it all, along the way…

The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse is (according to The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle by Lynda Hill & Richard Hill):

  • SYMBOLISM: UNDER EMOTIONAL STRESS, BLOOD RUSHES TO A MAN’S HEAD
  • KEY NOTE: There is almost nothing that can be done at the moment. It is like being immobilized with neither mental or physical control. This will pass, but resistance will just make the situation worse. Difficulty containing emotional reactions. Becoming fired-up about something.
  • SHADOW: Making yourself ill through emotional suppression (!!!) Take note!

Since the New Moon/Solar Eclipse of January 5th in Capricorn, we’ve been undergoing a full Chakra Re-Boot! We began working with our Root Chakra imbalances/blockages that day, and today, 15 days later, we now work with the Crown Chakra’s. See my New Moon/Solar Eclipse post for the Root Chakra details. Here are the Crown Chakra details (a combination from Medical Astrology & The Chopra Center):

  • Ruled by: the SUN & associated with LEO
  • Glands Therein: Hypothalamus & Pineal
  • Colour: VIOLET
  • Element Highlighted: ALL – Light, Ether, Air, Earth, Fire, Water
  • Main Issues: Spirituality, Relationship to God/TAO, Universal Simplex
  • When Imbalanced: lacks inspiration, aimlessness, feel lonely, excessive materialism, lacks spiritual connection, difficulty meditating, exhaustion, sensitive to light/sounds, poor sleep habits, migraines or tension headaches.
  • When Blocked: Difficulty meditating. Lack of spiritual connections. Aimlessness.
  • MANTRA to Use: OM – say this to yourself, in meditation, over and over, for 10 minutes. Do this daily until you shift your imbalances/blockages.
  • Affirmation to Use: I honour the Divine Within me and all living things.

Looking at the chart for this Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse – I see the following:

  • Water Grand Trine – so yes, we WILL experience emotionality/feelings and intuitive hits of insight to receive messages from Within, Above – to help us FEEL as we move forward…Chiron in Pisces will HEAL the wounds to connecting spiritually/emotionally/intuitionally/energetically with ourselves and everyone around us. The North Node in Cancer beckons us into the direction, soulfully, of the collective Family of Man, with compassion, intuition, and sensitivity to how we and others feel around us. And, Ceres in Scorpio brings forth emotional nurturance through the dark waters of our fears, deep-seated as they may be, to be released, cleansed and let go. To find our PASSIONATE natures lying underneath those waters of dark emotions we fear to feel, let alone walk through.
  • Cardinal Grand Square – 4 areas of Life Experience exhibiting needs for CHANGE – ALL AT THE SAME TIME! – from Eris & Uranus in Aries (independent nature to Explore, Pioneer anew, stand up as Warrior if need be) + North Node in Cancer (direction our Soul wishes to head into WITH sensitivity / feeling / compassion / intuition) + Pluto & Mercury & South Node in Capricorn (unresolved issues from Past Lives/this lifetime regarding Power & Control vs. Empowerment + Self Talk/Communicating about your goals, responsibilities, and upward-moving change in direction).
  • And, a Constant Letting Go of OLD PATTERNS of CONDITIONING x 4 (x 6 for we folks living in Okotoks!)….I won’t go into the gory details – you’ll understand exactly what your patterns are that you’ll be releasing this day and for the next 3.5 years. Let me say this: the YODS, Fingers of God patterns create a pentagram here in Okotoks – the Hand of the Goddess – to connect with your Divine Feminine nature and abilities – both women and men – and all mixtures of natures. FEEL, BE, RECEIVE, INTUIT, BREATHE…

Luckily for us this happens later today – however, leading up to 7:45 pm, well…those of us more sensitive to these subtle changes will have already been riding the waves of emotion/migraines/tension headaches/sleeplessness/buying things vs. spending time Within this past week…and for most of you, the subtleties of a Lunar Eclipse will pass on through you almost Unconsciously…while for the rest of us…not so much…

Bottom Line: FEEL your emotions, STAY WITH THEM, take note of your INTUITIVE HITS OF INSIGHT along the way, and ENJOY this ride that will open up your Crown Chakra for clearer connections with YOUR Divine Spirit/Soul-Self! Heartfully…

Today marks the 5th anniversary of Dad’s passing AND we’re celebrating my youngest sister’s birthday, without our middle sister – Blessed BE Dad and Tamra! We LOVE you both so much!

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!

Namaste

Full Moon in Taurus: Unexpected Hands-on Change – Are you ready?

This Full Moon phase begins Wednesday October 24, 2018 at 10:45 am MDT in the fixed earth sign of Taurus at 01 degrees and 13′. The Sun sits opposite the Moon at 01 degrees of Scorpio 13′. The Full Moon reflects the unconscious desires of the Sun. What are yours?

Oct 2018 Pics 059The Moon represents our Emotional Body, daily habits, and how well we feel those feelings, follow our intuition, and deal with the emotional baggage we carry with us. The Sun represents our vital Soul self, the energy that keeps us moving forward in life.

Emotionally, Taurus brings forth our values, worthiness, self-esteem and self-confidence issues. Soulfully, we’re also treading through the deep-seated emotional waters of Scorpio – where our Ego-self hides its fears, denials and resistance to change – resistance to truly experiencing our Passionate Natures.

This Full Moon creates a Fixed Grand Square planetary formation, all within the fixed signs, bringing forth the need to deal with all the details at hand AND perhaps forgetting to come up for air to see the Big Picture. Uranus is currently Rx (retrograde) sitting at 00 degrees of Taurus, creating Unexpected Change, emotionally, for all. The Fixed signs do NOT like change…so this will be an interesting few days for everyone!

Oct 2018 Pics 009The other characters involved within the Fixed Grand Square are:

  • North Node Rx in LEO: the direction our Souls wish us to move into at this time; a direction we do not necessarily feel comfortable experiencing. Leo rules the heart, creativity, fun and play, leading as a team player, and selling yourself, heartfully. Leo also rules the back and spine: how well are you supporting YOUR unconscious desires AND supporting your heartfelt needs? For YOUR life? For YOU? Being a fixed fire sign, we can stubbornly put others first, ourselves second, because we always have, why change now? Time to put YOURSELF FIRST.
  • South Node Rx in Aquarius: the direction our Souls have LOTS of experience of, and where we can bring in Unresolved Issues from our past – past lives, and/or earlier this lifetime. Could be people, situations, circumstances from the past that come forward this Full Moon phase to help you BE AUTHENTIC, BE REAL and BE TRULY YOU (New Age of Aquarius means all of us are learning to BE/DO this as we continue to transition away from the Old Age of Pisces). If you’re not, they/the situation will call you up on the carpet to BE so.
  • A Square situation in Astrology creates Stress and Tension Within to cause change and usually much-needed at this time. Envision you’re sitting at a table seating four people. You can see directly into the eyes of the person sitting opposite you; you need to move your head/body somewhat to engage the people on your left or right. This movement IS the CHANGE – in focus, perspective, thoughts, feelings and insights. Are you willing to take a look/listen? To allow those true feelings to come forth and be witnessed by others around you?
  • In other words – we have another Heart-opening opportunity to BE part of the human condition, to NOT hide out in the Shadows.

Taurus rules the creativity we each wish to use for self, hands-on, using all our senses; Leo rules the innocent creativity, part of that Inner Child piece we each carry Within. Aquarius rules our ability to be unemotionally involved, while being community-minded; Scorpio rules our deepest passionate natures, and perhaps hiding this part of ourselves, feeling too vulnerable to be SEEN, truly.

Oct 2018 Pics 033All four elements are brought to the table for us to use this Full Moon. Choose wisely, creatively, sensuously, passionately, heartfully, and authentically. BE all of who you truly are. Allow yourself to SHINE and ILLUMINATE yourself to others.

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!
