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

New Moon in Sagittarius: Seeking Spiritual Connection or Drama?

Tomorrow, Friday December 7th, 2018 at 12:20 am MST we experience the beginning of another Moon cycle – New Moon phase begins – when the Moon and Sun sit together at the same celestial coordinates of 15 degrees of Sagittarius 07′.

Saturn Turns Retrograde April 5 - August 25, 2017Sagittarius is our mutable fire sign – going with the flow – of INSPIRed creative action (in-spirit) – as we determine our INTENTIONS for this Moon cycle. The Arrow of the Sagittarius glyph signifies our Quest of Purpose: “Why am I here? What IS my purpose? What have I to offer in the outer world, beyond my locale?”

New Moon in Gemini: Connections & NegotiationsThe mutable sign of Gemini is the opposite sign to Sagittarius, signifying our locale – people we live with, interact with, grew up with (siblings, neighbours, long-time family friends) and the merchants/retail stores we visit on a regular basis. People who we speak with, locally.

This New Moon cycle, beginning tomorrow, brings us closer to the global connections of our respective worlds. What are you intending, as next steps, to be OUT in the larger world? Where are you headed? What are you wishing to learn?

IMG_9914Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter (also currently in Sagittarius!) and resides in the 9th House of WE SPEAK within the natural wheel of the zodiac. The themes for Sagittarius (as put forth by Jan Spiller’s New Moon Astrology) are:

  • Your Quest for Truth: searching for answers to answer “Why am I here? What’s my purpose?” via religion, praying/meditating via higher guidance, going to places of worship, being frank and honest, directly discussing your quest with others. Any or all of these come into play during this Moon cycle. Interesting that we will experience the most popular religious time of year – Christmas. How meaningful is this time of year for you – especially this year? What will you explore further, as your quest for truth?
  • Peace of Mind: found in Nature as you connect Without, to listen Within, for guidance from Above. Listen for and follow your intuitive knowing. What are the subtle whisperings from your Higher Self saying?
  • Travel/Freedom/Adventure: many people travel to warmer climes this time of year to embrace the Sun/warmth/solar fire, escaping the reality of -23 degrees C with the windchill mornings up here in Canada (or colder!). Spontaneity, seeking adventure, having positive expectations of the long-distance and perhaps foreign travel, to EXPLORE other cultures, religions, sacred spaces – to perhaps FIND or SEE Yourself mirrored there. “Why am I here? What’s my purpose?”
  • Legal Issues: Sagittarius rules attorneys, lawsuits, ethics, morality, conscience and court proceedings – anything to do with the Law of the Land. With Mercury about to  Station Direct at 27 degrees of Scorpio (yay! Mercury Rx is almost over!) Expect the Unexpected from planned events, previous discussions, misinterpreted conversations, and delays in usual straightforward motion and contracts. Revisit previously agreed-upon strategies – you may find items previously missed!
  • Faith & Optimism: there are times in our lives – usually around the holidays with family gatherings, to-ing and fro-ing the house/office parties – where our Faith can be tested – especially with thoughts of loved ones passed on, feeling lonely for their hugs, voices, laughter – missing the people who are no longer with us. And there is that generous spirit of giving, perhaps having the good luck to afford presents this year when in previous years, not so much. And gallantry – wherefore art thou? LOL! The optimism can also turn into wishful thinking/hoping – ensure you have a good dose of reality mixed into all of this…
  • Finding Solutions: through mentors who’ve been there done that before you, connecting with Higher Education institutions (colleges, universities) if your search for your Higher Truth takes you onto a different life path, seeking the philosophy that calls to your heart and soul as you seek the answers your soul/spirit quest. All in aid of finding the solutions to wherever it is YOU ARE NOW.
  • Overcoming Excess: here we encounter that over-optimistic faith that “If I buy this now, I’ll be able to pay off my credit card next year!” How many years has the consumerism in the larger world brought us to our knees as the colder January snows and temperatures show up? Watch out for shortcuts that end up creating worse scenarios, being self-righteous about ill-fated decisions, making assumptions, excesses and extravagance, blunt communication and Pollyanna approaches. BE TRUTHFUL as to your INSPIRed Actions – coming from your Soul/Spirit Self or Ego’s need to other than itself? These are the pitfalls of Jupiter/Sagittarius…
  • Physical Health Ruled by Sagittarius: hips, liver, sciatica, thighs and upper legs. These are the areas of the physical body that will ‘speak to you’ via pain, accidents, the need for exercise (vs. excess!) that will be carried forward into the New Year if we’re not looking at the bigger picture…take those walks, jog, ski, skate, dance, hike – do whatever it is you need to do – drink more water vs. spirits (!) – to flush those toxins out. Visit the people who can help you determine the Higher Truth of what may already be going sideways in your physical body. Why wait for 2019? DO IT NOW!

Scorpio Full Moon: Facing Our Fears of Worth + ValueThe Sabian Symbol (from The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle by Lynda Hill & Richard Hill) for this New Moon’s celestial longitude:

  • Symbol: SEAGULLS FLY AROUND A SHIP LOOKING FOR FOOD
  • Key Wisdom: This pictures a situation of dependence and sometimes co-dependence. Don’t look to others or have others look to you for opportunities and nourishment, for you may miss your chance of being creative and independent. Who’s looking for scraps? Are they worth it? Diminishing your essential worth while trying to please a specific need. LOSING SIGHT OF ALTERNATIVE POSSIBILITIES.
  • Shadow: Waiting for scraps that may not even be worth it or may not ever come.

In other words: LOOK for YOUR HIGHER PURPOSE – no one else will or can do it for you! Seek that which calls out from your heart of hearts. BE optimistic that yes, you WILL find that pot of gold at the end of your Life Path’s rainbow. And it won’t be found if you don’t MOVE yourself, TAKE ACTION, in some regard. Sagittarius mutable fire – go WITH the flow AND ensure it’s the flow YOU wish to go with! Not someone else’s! Heed your own Inner Call!

This New Moon (Sun + Moon) position will create some stress and tension, Within, from the help of Mars + Chiron, both within the mutable water sign of PISCES – our Spiritual connection. Mars wants to take assertive Action AND Chiron wishes to HEAL the pain and/or Drama you’ve been carrying Within (be it physically, emotionally, mentally and/or spiritually). Yes: GO WITH THE FLOW and SEEK YOUR SPIRITUAL HIGHER SELF / TRUTH / PURPOSE – in every Action, Prayer, Decision, Conversation, Book, Person, Video you encounter – between Friday December 7th and January 4th, 2019! Let go of the victim/rescue me/I feel persecuted or bullied roles of that Drama Triangle – step OFF this triangle by going Within, Seek your Higher Self, and Listen to your Heart. With Love, Faith & Optimism – look for the signs and symbols of this season to help you to Keep on Keeping On!

MERRY MERRY – Happy Christmas to One & All – Blessed BE – Namaste

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

Full Moon in Virgo Today @ 11:05a MST

Virgo glyphTwo weeks have gone by since the New Moon phase, and today’s Full Moon means the Sun and Moon are facing one another, in opposite signs. The Moon (in Virgo) is Illuminating, spotlighting the unconscious desires of the Sun (Soul) sitting in Pisces. Virgo is mutable earth and Pisces is mutable water. Both represent how we wish to BE of service. Pisces represents being of higher service, divinely or spiritually, moving beyond the Ego self’s desires to do work “for the good of all” in some regard. Where Pisces resides in your birth chart shows you where this service comes into play in your life. Virgo represents mundane or earth-bound service, daily work we do in this world. She also represents the health of our physical body. If we don’t have our health, we canna work, and if we aren’t working, our health can suffer. Virgo shows us how we perfect the processes in life, how we “see” a better world, and do the detail work to that end. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the wee details we forget why we started the work or project to begin with!

Neptune

Neptune

The Full Moon chart shows Neptune at 07 degrees of Pisces 33′, followed by the Sun at 14 degrees of Pisces 50′ (hence the Moon is sitting at 14 degrees of Virgo 50′) and Chiron at 17 degrees of Pisces 07′. This grouping has been working on us since 2011/2012 and especially when the Sun is in Pisces February to March every year since. What does this trio have in store for us this Full Moon? I (and my peers) have noticed that the Chiron Wound in Pisces (and many of my clients were born with Chiron in Pisces, and now the rest of us are also experiencing this) whereby we “see” and feel the pain and suffering of others around us. Chiron in Pisces wishes to heal us through the wound of how we hold compassion for one another, and for how long. This is key. We are all reworking a different level of compassion for self and others AND learning when to use it and when to withdraw it. Withdraw it? Isn’t that the opposite of what we’re supposed to do? Not necessarily – think about the people in your life who are either emotionally or physically in pain, are suffering some kind of inner agony. How much of this pain and suffering is real and how much of it is to keep them in Victim mode? To have us rescue them, time after time, and yet nothing is healed. So what are we doing for these people? We keep them in victim mode, and prevent them from learning their OWN process of inner healing via holding compassion and love for themselves.

Chiron

Chiron

Chiron is the Centaur who was accidentally mortally wounded by Hercules yet could not die because he was half God. This in turn caused him to search out all alternative healing modalities and eventually to teach these healing techniques to the world. Chiron was discovered in 1977 and look how the alternative health industry has grown since then. Health food stores, acupuncture, reflexology, massage, Reiki, spas, personal gyms, yoga studios, meditation classes – you name it – are all mainstream now. You can see how Chiron has helped us to “help ourselves” physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually for 38 years now – a generation. Chiron glyphChiron wants us to HEAL ourselves, from the inside out, without fear of being rejected for being the sensitive souls we truly are. Chiron in Pisces (plus the Sun and Neptune) are collectively assisting us to BE more sensitive energetically and emotionally AND to “see” how those energetic boundaries can be part of that Drama Triangle, bringing Victim rather than Victor out in each of us. Heal the sensitive energy boundaries around you by setting solid standards of what you will and will not tolerate from others in behaviour. This includes being bullied, being told you are less than, to keep you in a Victim stance on that Drama Triangle, wishing for someone to please please please RESCUE ME! Guess what? YOU can rescue YOURSELF. From the inside out. Heal the inner wound – most likely emotional – and stand in your power, via LOVE. Your true self. And I don’t mean that you have power over others – it means to EMpower yourself and all others around you. Set those boundaries of behaviour and allow in love and compassion, joy and laughter. Express the same from yourself to the world around you.

Pisces

Pisces

This trio in Pisces seems to be triggering everyone’s Chiron Wound (no matter what sign it is in or House of Life Experience it is in) to BE healed now, to let go of the vestiges of the Age of Pisces whereby “who will look after me” victimization was the order of the day. The Age of Aquarius beckons us to be real, be strong, be flowing, be emotional, be intuitive, and be part of community all at the same time. With this Full Moon in Virgo, we are asked to “see” the measure of the service we are willing to DO in the world beyond the Drama Triangle and being Victim, or Rescuing others, or Persecuting/feeling persecuted. Where is Chiron in sign and House in your chart? This is the key that is being healed this New Moon cycle before the Vernal Equinox/New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse March 20th.

Aries Glyph

Aries Glyph

AND, we have a rolling stellium, or grouping of more than three planets, in Aries, the cardinal fire sign, initiating change in the realm of being our Inner Warrior, pioneering new inroads of self-identity that we never thought possible before now. Unresolved issues from the past (via the South Node) teamed with Mars (ruler of Aries) to ASSERT ourselves, stand up and fight for what is true and right for self. Followed by Uranus bringing Unexpected Change into the mix, allowing for originality and individuation – aka BEing Your Truest Self – and asserting yourself accordingly. WHO AM I? WHAT DO I WANT TO DO? WHAT DO MY INSTINCTS TELL ME? Venus assists Uranus via what you heartfully, lovingly, DESIRE in MY life – no matter whether you are married, have a significant other, are in some type of partnership – what do YOU desire for yourself? And are you allowing those desires to be asserted (Mars) now? “Just a spoonful of Courage….” is what is necessary this Full Moon – to take some sort of ACTION. Action speaks louder than words or thoughts…. Stand up to the bullies showing up in your life; including your own Inner Bully (we attract outwardly that which we suppress/dismiss within) and love them by telling them how their behaviour is not tolerated from this moment forward. Period. Stand firm, yet lovingly so.

Full Moon in Nanaimo, BC 2012

Full Moon in Nanaimo, BC 2012

The Full Moon’s position at 14 degrees Virgo 50′ creates an angle to Uranus and Venus that beckons all of us to let go of old patterns of conditioning that have held us BACK from asserting ourselves with others – no matter who they are. Uranus encourages True Self expression, BEing your original YOU. Venus encourages self-love, to bring the inner beauty OUT for all to see. Do you “see” the COURAGE this takes? How can we BE of SERVICE, daily, if we are afraid of the people around us? If we are afraid of setting healthy boundaries of acceptable behaviour around us? To me this is what is wrong in the wide world of gangs and cartels and groups who think they can get away with murder, literally, due to force and a huge lack of self-esteem, self-confidence and most importantly, self-love! To BE of Service means to serve from the heart, to be willing to not know all the rules or processes just yet. To perfect yourself and inner knowledge and skill sets along the way, with time. There are no shortcuts in life, they can bite you in the butt somewhere down the line. Emotionally, intuitively, know how you wish to SERVE others in your life, without BEing victim or encouraging victimization in others. Courageously STAND FIRM, with Love and Compassion, with SELF and OTHERS, for what you know, heartfully, is true for your life and your journey. Not because society or gangs or friends or family are bullying us to BE otherwise. Perfect yourself, lovingly, yet let go of perfectionism. We are all, right now, this minute, as PERFECT as we can possible BE. BLESSED BE! Posted by: (Laurie) Rae Rezanoff, Intuitive Spiritual Astrologer, Teacher & Facilitator
