Aquarius New Moon

25 Jan

bald-eagleThis is the first New Moon of 2017 and it’s in futuristic, unconventional Aquarius. Changes and new beginnings are in the air. After the tension and heightened emotions of this past Full Moon, we could use a bit of Aquarius’ emotional detachment. All planets are in direct motion now which is a rare occurrence and suggests we are moving forward. Aquarius is a sign associated with humanitarian causes and efforts and doing things that creates a win/win for the good of the collective.
The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 8 degrees 41 minutes Aquarius reads:
” A flag turning into an Eagle”, this symbol speaks of freedom and of unveiling truth.
Uranus, the Awakener and the Liberator is in charge of this New Moon and continues to connect with Saturn in Sagittarius and oppose Jupiter in Libra. These energies will interact with each other and dominate most of the upcoming year. Here we see big changes on the social and collective level. Many of the changes are happening fast and they’re unconventional, unprecedented and frankly, unpredictable. The thing about change is that change scares people even when we know that that is exactly what is needed; and there is a lot of fear these days. There are new groups or movements that are all about doing things differently and changing directions (Uranus in Aries) but we also see a growing opposition to some of these changes as well as a need for more inclusiveness, tolerance and fair dealings (Jupiter in Libra). Saturn in Sagittarius is in favorable aspect to both of the opposing planets, helping to ensure that the changes that are happening are more constructive, viable, realistic and long lasting, while insisting on more accountability, discipline and cutting out excess.
There has been a great awakening, and we’re being forced to pay attention, to be accountable and to share in the growing responsibilities in co-creating a world and a reality we all wish to live in, moving beyond fear and scarcity, a world that we can all thrive in, a world where we all matter.
Pluto in Capricorn is still not far away; the crumbling of our structures and the decay of our systems that we’ve witnessed in the last several years, will now begin to turn to recovery and reformation.
Chiron in Pisces is also in the mix here. This suggests that there is a challenge or a block to our old escape routes, or the old way of doing things that doesn’t usually work out or in fact, even works against us. The way through seems unclear and obstructed. We seem to be learning from our experiences and mistakes or there is a growing need to.
There are several celestial bodies gathered in watery Pisces now; the South Node, Pallas, Neptune, Chiron, Venus and Mars in the last degree. This puts a lot of energy into the subtle realms and dream time experiences. This also puts a focus on water and liquids; DAPL and the keystone pipelines come to mind.
Juno is close to the Galactic Center, this is the Center of our galaxy, the Sun of our Sun from which higher consciousness and wisdom pours through. See what (or who) speaks to you during this time and don’t blow off your intuition. Perhaps the Universe sends you a Divine Match. This can also suggest we need to partner up with the Universe and co-conspire with LIFE and get down to business! We all can have a unique role to play, a contribution to make as well as a claim at stake. The symbolism of Juno is also associated with ‘giving away power’ and we may get clued in on where we’ve done just that. There are certain shared beliefs that form our reality and we have an opportunity to make some changes in order to bring our goals and aspirations more into alignment with our beliefs and the truth of who we are.
We can really feel it these days when something is not a vibrational match.
Saturn, the ruler of our 3D reality, is not far off from the Galactic Center either and will soon make contact for the first time since 1988. We could receive wisdom and guidance or blessings and rewards from the center of the galaxy. We may now be able to give form to our divinity, prophetic visions, beliefs, our guiding wisdom, higher authority or something that we just know to be true. We may now get our proof.
Mars is just hours away from entering his own sign of Aries for the first time in two years. This starts a whole new cycle of initiative and action. We are motivated to move! Where are your aims and efforts?
Venus in Pisces is quincunx Jupiter in Libra and square Saturn in Sagittarius. This puts a squeeze and a strain on relationships and money; telling us that we need to cut back and use more discipline and to make some adjustments in our dealings with others in order to be fair. In money matters there could be money missing, or dollars slipping through your fingers and a need for a better accounting of where it’s going.
In love, we may desire the intangible and impossible or maybe someone that is unavailable perhaps you desire a more spiritual union or in love with an image but with a square from Saturn in Sag, there’s a big dose of reality and a need to do some tweaking within our unions so that we are on more equal footing. It may also be that we have to outgrow or move beyond certain relationships, relationship patterns or patterns of co-dependency. This may mean that we may have to sacrifice something that we love or want and handle things with more maturity.
Blessings to All at this New Moon!

Cancer Full Moon

11 Jan

cancer-crabThe first Full Moon of the year is in the sign of the Crab. This may be an emotional Full Moon having some wanting to retreat into their shells. This lunation forms a Cardinal Grand Cross which creates a lot of tension and pressure, feeling as if you’re being pulled in four different directions and not able to accomplish much.

We all need a little shelter… just a little helper…to get us by…

The other planets involved in this pattern are Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries, and Pluto is not far from the Sun in Capricorn. This implies that big changes are happening and they’re happening fast, leaving us with a sense of insecurity; perhaps feeling that the things that are familiar, safe, traditional or stable are being threatened. Alternatively, it can be exhilarating and exciting as some things that may have been lingering too long and are in need of some excitement.
This is the time of year when we need to balance our domestic, private, home and family life with our lives out there in the world but now we also have the added pressure from Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries. This makes things very unpredictable. We could see a number of things coming to light that may be quite surprising and shocking. What comes up may even instigate our sense of fairness and right and wrong or aggravate our moral code. This may involve family situations or private matters as well as situations involving our reputations, careers, parents, bosses and some of our goals and achievements. We could see breaks in relationships or even sudden or unusual alliances and associations. We could also see agreements made and/or broken at this time. On another level, there is a new vibration that is bringing things into alignment which could bring sudden eruptions, outbreaks or ruptures within the body and/or the need to extract something.
Saturn and Juno in Sagittarius connect with this emotional Moon requiring the need for some tweaking concerning our maturity, accountability, partnerships, agreements and long term commitments. There seems to be a need for more adulting. There may also be shared beliefs and working closely with another toward building something up. It may also be that we can turn to our long term and committed relationships or our partner as a source of comfort and stability amid all of these rapid changes and uncertainty. Alternatively, it could also be that it is our committed relationships or our actual partner that these changes are affecting. There may be a need to be on more equal footing and to have more give and take or to collaborate, cooperate and include others which takes one’s need to assert their individuality, independence and have it their way head on.
Chiron in Pisces also connects with this Cancer Full Moon perhaps creating a sense of homesickness or nostalgia for what used to be as we’re flooded with images and memories as well as some tears. It would be good for the soul to go and be in or near water now. There is a need to cleanse and let go. Be careful of trying to drown our sorrows in alcohol, drugs or food. It’s as if we’re all looking for an escape, a loophole or a way out or through.

There are places I’ll remember all my life… though some have changed
some forever not for better…some have gone and some remain
all these places have their moments…

Another manifestation of this energy exchange involving Saturn and Juno in Sagittarius and Chiron in Pisces connected with this lunation is that it could bring issues related to domestic violence, abuse, sexual abuse or incest into the spotlight at this Full Moon. Situations dealing with victimization and abuse of authority and power may also come up now. We could also see topics involving the rights,laws, protection and security of such victims.
2016 was a year number Nine in Numerology marking the completion of a cycle and it was undeniably in our face all year. There was much that came up from the past, many situations that met their demise and whole ways of life that came to a conclusion. Now we have a year number One; this is very fertile ground to begin anew. We can choose what moves on into our new beginning and what gets left behind for good. Right now, we also have a lot of planets and points gathering in Pisces suggesting that there is still some unfinished business to take care of and all is not as it seems. Things are not exactly clear and there may be hidden motivations or your intentions may not be clear. Relationships and agreements can also be a bit fuzzy or too idealistic. Mercury is now direct and in the last degree of Sagittarius at this Full Moon, enabling us to get a broad overview of a situation before re-entering Capricorn just a short time later where we can start to make more concrete plans.
Blessings to YOU and your family at this Full Moon!

Gemini Full Moon

9 Dec

number-9The Full Moon in Gemini on December 13, will be the last Full Moon of 2016. There is a lot of planetary play and action with this Full Moon. It seems that many of the planets and celestial bodies want to have their say at this important time. Since the Universe does not operate on our time-line, this lunation acts as a link between the ending of one cycle into the next. It’s as if we’re walking through a corridor. This culminating cycle is palpable to many of us and we feel the conclusion of this Nine year; if our eyes are open, we’re aware that there are endings everywhere we look yet there is lots to look forward to. It appears as though we’re about to get a preview.

Gemini has dominion over our thoughts and communication and how we perceive information. Gemini also likes movement, mobility and variety, two of something or multiples; two jobs, two relationships, homes etc. After all, it’s represented by the Twins and duality is a theme. Gemini often can see both sides of an issue giving it the reputation of being superficial or two faced. When the Moon is Full in Gemini, the Sun is across the sky in Sagittarius; this is when we have to reconcile our logic and reason with our faith and beliefs; what we think with what we know or our opinions vs. fact. Gemini also rules over siblings, neighbors and the neighborhood. These are just some of the topics that are illuminated at this time.

Mercury, the ruler of this Full Moon is in cautious Capricorn keeping our minds on the things that matter. Mercury is also approaching a meetup with Pluto but goes retrograde on December 19th, just one tiny degree away from being exact. This doesn’t lessen the power Pluto has to transform the structure of our thoughts, communication and perception; even our perception of time. This has us covering old ground and rethinking or re-planning some things pertaining to our role, our business or careers, our goals, how we spend and manage our time, our authority and responsibilities, our thoughts on success and achievement, our parents or our own parenting; perhaps we will need to re-write the rules on some level.

Mars in Aquarius energizes this lunation suggesting that our aims are innovative and future oriented. There is a drive for freedom and independence even for humanity as a whole. We may see changes of direction, sudden moves and/or radical actions perhaps due to unexpected information.

Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus all connect with this Full Moon and they’ll all be working on our perceptions and communications big time. It may be that talks, conversations or the things you hear in passing may bring something to light, it may be shocking or unexpected or come up against your own opinions or worldview or sense of right and wrong or what you thought you knew. At any rate, don’t expect your thinking to remain the same in some area, be open to alternate views and opinions and give yourself space to change your mind.
Chiron in Pisces also contacts this lunation challenging us to take another look in how we perceive some of our flaws and injured parts and to see things in a new light. We need to recognize the wisdom and strength that we’ve gained and the ways in which we’ve grown from some of our weakest moments. We are to acknowledge the lessons and meaning within these times that we experience suffering and to move beyond them. There is a lot being surrendered and let go of in these times.

There are a few major patterns emerging that will have some staying power, shaping our year ahead and for many to come. Jupiter in Libra, Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries will be mingling for a good bit of 2017 . We’re getting a preview here as the year draws to a close and they get closer in orb. Jupiter and Saturn are both social planets. Jupiter shows our growth while Saturn indicates our boundaries. Jupiter in Libra grows through cooperating with others, Saturn in Sagittarius increases our responsibilities and accountability. Uranus is a futuristic, revolutionary change maker, an awakener; and boy are we being shaken awake.

Shake it don’t break it baby!!!

Headz up for the Holidaze….
Christmas will be anything but typical this year…

On December 24th, Christmas Eve for many, Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries have a friendly encounter. This is the first of three of these link ups between these two very different energies. There is an ease and a blending of the old and the new; traditional beliefs and new trends. We may be able to learn from our experiences and initiate changes. These changes will be constructive ones. There is a slow and cautious revolution where there is a fair exchange between freedom and responsibility. It may be that while we’ve been forced to eliminate excess, cut back, conserve and to focus, to get the meaning of an experience, that this leads up to a break through or an aha moment.

On December 25, Christmas Day and Hanukkah to many, Venus in Aquarius connects beautifully to Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. This puts our money, relationships and the things we value in the spotlight.

On December 26th, Jupiter in Libra gets in on the action with an opposition to Uranus in Aries. This is also the first of three face offs between these two which adds up to a social revolution in the making. Things are changing in a BIG way. There’s an amplified buzz of excitement and enthusiasm now. It may feel like there is a new vibration, frequency, awakenings or new beginnings bringing things into alignment for many. We could also see breaks in agreements and relationships or shocking alliances. Things are extremely unpredictable and changeable.

And the men who hold high places…must be the ones to start…
to mold a new reality…
closer to the heart … closer to the heart

New Year’s Eve looks like there are adjustments to be made within our contacts and associations and healing some of our illusions, feelings of helplessness and savior/victim ways. Some may be torn between many social engagements and a need for solitude. It could also be that we are moving beyond old relationships and relationship patterns or perhaps a relationship has just ended or perhaps we don’t hang out with the old crowd anymore and that has us feeling a bit lonely or falling back into addictions or old escape routes. On New Year’s Day we have a Mars Neptune conjunction in Pisces. This makes a foggy start to the year. Watch how much you drink and overindulge or you will be paying for it the next day. This influence may have us scratching our heads having a WTF just happened moment of confusion. You have been warned.

Happy Holidaze and Blessings to ALL at this Full Moon!!!

This will be the last blog post of the year but I hope that you will join me January 3rd 7-9 pm in person or Skype for a New Year’s workshop covering the upcoming energies of 2017.  Scroll to the bottom to purchase here: http://www.spellboundastrology.com/my-offerings or email me for details at christinacelona12@gmail.com

Sagittarius New Moon

23 Nov

space-doorwayThis New Moon on November 29th is in the sign of Sagittarius, the Seeker of Truth and Wisdom. Sagittarius is on a journey to explore, discover and encounter new worlds, new ideas and beliefs and new ways of life. Sag takes the high road and has faith and optimism about the future; and who couldn’t use a dose of that these days? On the flip side, Sagittarius can be too moralistic, preachy, self-righteous and judgmental.
These are some of the areas where the ground is fertile now; where new seeds may be planted. For some time now, we’ve had the task master Saturn in Sagittarius which has the effect of curbing our enthusiasm, slowing our growth, increasing responsibilities, testing our faith and limiting opportunities in order to narrow our options and focus. Yeah I know Saturn is all business and seems like no fun but there are valuable lessons here. Saturn is a bit far from this New Moon but we still feel his presence. In another way, Saturn in Sagittarius can have us viewing things from a limited world view. Saturn is also associated with reality or at least the 3D reality so Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius is also about recognizing which beliefs shape our reality. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon reads, “rocks and things forming therein” this suggests that there are shifts happening and things going on under the surface before manifestation and co-creation.
Juno is very close to this New Moon highlighting relationships, agreements and shared beliefs

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery none but ourselves can free our minds..

This New Moon is square to Neptune and the Nodal axis making this a pivotal time as we are at a crossroads now; somewhat caught between the past and the future and at a defining moment especially where our beliefs, our faith, our sense of knowing, our judgement, ethics and sense of right and wrong are concerned. These are all in Mutable signs so things are in a state of transition; there’s fluidity or changeability. With Neptune in Pisces involved, things are unclear, there is confusion and all is not as it seems. We may even find that the Truth is stranger than fiction. We may feel as if one door has closed but we’ve yet to walk through the new door and we’re hanging out in the spaces in between. The Nodal axis in Virgo and Pisces asks that we also use our intuition in a way that is practical, useful and integrate our spiritual life into our everyday lives, to find meaning, truth and purpose and to learn to listen to our higher guidance, intuition and knowing. The thing is, with Neptune so close, the lines are really blurred. We are being challenged to use discernment, let go of illusions and lies, learn from our mistakes and to course correct for the future.
On another level, at the Sagittarius New Moon, we could see beginings in situations involving legal issues, higher education, publishing, broadcasting or advertising come up now.

There is no political solution
to our troubled evolution
Have no faith in constitution
There is no bloody revolution
We are Spirits in the material world….

Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, is in Libra increasing the importance of relationships, equality and agreements. It’s becoming increasingly obvious that we need others; we have to live with, work with, tolerate, cooperate and partner up with others and we have to make arrangements that work for all because we’re all in this together. Jupiter is approaching a square to Pluto which will be exact on the 24th, Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S. This can make for a contentious holiday since people may have strong opinions and beliefs, thinking their way is the best and only way and may try to change or challenge others. There are also major changes in store where it concerns our structures, government, rules and authority. There is an increasing opposition challenging consolidation of power and pushing reform.
This can mean the actual tearing down or rebuilding, rehabbing or remodeling of an actual structure or even earth movements and geological changes as in earthquakes, sink holes and aftershocks.

Rise up and take the power back
it’s time the fat cats had a heart attack
you know their time is coming to an end
time to unify and watch a flag ascend

This is an aspect that will shape much of 2017. I will be talking more about this and you can read some of my thoughts about this in a previous post http://www.spellboundastrology.com/single-post/2016/11/12/Taurus-Super-Moon

You can also read more on Jupiter in Libra http://www.spellboundastrology.com/single-post/2016/09/09/Jupiter-Enters-Libra
Venus, the ruler of Libra, is now in cautious Capricorn and square Uranus in Aries. It may be that the restraint or reserve we’ve shown recently in matters of love or money may be challenged or stimulated by surprises, fluctuations or instability.
New Moon Blessings to ALL and Happy Thanksgiving!

Taurus Super Moon

12 Nov

abundance

The Moon is full in the sign of the Bull on November 14th and it is a Super Moon, one we haven’t seen the likes of in nearly 70 years! It will be big and bright and shining a lot of light, illuminating dark places. Both Taurus and Scorpio are signs that deal with security; emotional and material security. We must reconcile which things we are to hold on to and what we need to let go of. Situations dealing with what we’re comfortable with, what or who we trust, issues of life and death, who we love, our possessions, resources, finances and the things that we value will come up now. We may see a turning point in some area that we’ve been plodding along in or a project that we’ve been building up. Taurus is an Earth sign and is also associated with gratitude, Gaia and her resources; these things are highlighted now. During this time of year, we’re getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving here in the U.S. honoring Earth’s abundance and the things that we’re thankful for.
Uranus is connecting with this lunation suggesting that there are changes and adjustments to be made. This may inject an element of surprise and unpredictability which may not be welcomed as some of our security buttons are being pushed; perhaps even a security breach or a breach of trust. Alternatively, there could be a shake up to a situation that’s been stuck and stagnant. It may also involve new groups, new friends or new technology. This influence can threaten something stable or energize a stale situation. Obviously, this may cause some discomfort even when these changes are the very thing we’ve wanted and needed.
Venus, the ruler of this Taurus Full Moon is in conservative Capricorn. This has us feeling cautious in matters of love and money. We value things of substance or things that are traditional and that stand the test of time. We’re willing to invest in the long term now. We are not into frivolous spending or casual relationships right now. We can also be made aware of the responsibilities that we have to our loved ones and how some of these important relationships help to shape our lives.
At the time of this Full Moon, Mercury and Juno conjunct in Sagittarius connecting with Mars in Aquarius; again, highlighting the importance of meaningful relationships. This may mean that speaking our truth and engaging in honest conversations in regards to relationships, partnerships and agreements has potential to create spontaneous actions, unexpected moves or a show of independence. Expanding our perception and making future plans could also mean a change of direction.
Neptune is conjunct the South Node in Pisces suggesting that we are letting go of old illusions, mistakes, blind spots and escape routes. This is an emotional process.
Chiron in Pisces also connects favorably with this lunation providing some compassionate healing and to ease our suffering a bit.
Jupiter is moving in to contact Saturn in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s ruler. This is a positive interchange and stabilizing influence. These two social planets will be in close proximity into 2017. We can be cautiously optimistic and able to work on opportunities for growth. There could be are career opportunities or opportunities for advancement that also comes with responsibility. We may need to evaluate options and make long range decisions. This also suggests that we are more conservative and cautious, cutting back, narrowing our options -also in regard to our associations and agreements. It also points to our growing responsibility to conserve and to increase the balance and even it up.

Jupiter in Libra is also closing in on a square to Pluto in Capricorn. This is an important aspect that doesn’t happen often. We’ll see these two go at it again in the coming months. This is one of the major shapers and /or players of 2017.

Jupiter is a social planet dealing with subjects like our world view, opinions, beliefs, religion, sense of right and wrong and the Law. Libra deals with fairness and equality and balance. Pluto is a slower moving, generational planet and a force that pushes for evolution and brings forth powerful transformations in whatever it comes into contact with; Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and represents the structure and framework of our society, the rules, authority and what is considered to be socially acceptable. These energies squaring off will challenge and transform some of these areas and change the social fabric within our society for generations. We must be mindful and try to take the high road, to be fair and inclusive and to co-create a world that we all want to live in.

We’re being faced with a challenge to reform structures and even out the playing field. Jupiter in Libra asks that we have faith in others and to give them a fair shake without labels and with more tolerance. The flip side of that is that we can become overly judgmental or excessively moral and righteous. Follow the golden rule and treat others how you want to be treated! It’s pretty simple. This is the right thing to do as one human being to another and deep down we we know this to be true.

Jupiter in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn wants us to have fair dealings that are mutually beneficial; there is an increasing opposition that challenges a consolidation of power and dares a destruction to things that may seem to have been set in stone and a reformation, a new framework upon which we build our lives and our society. Faith in others, tolerance and an increase in peace and harmony can stimulate the rebuilding of structures, rules, policies, etc. We need agreements and rules we can all live with and must be able to see things from another side, or to seek alternatives.

On another level, we can experience growth and opportunity through our associations and we’re able to outgrow and move beyond other relationships or patterns of relating. Our contact with others can increase now and we can be pushed to eliminate any blocks or resistance. The relationships and agreements we enter into now have the power to change our lives for better or worse.

Jupiter in Libra is also a very creative influence and pitted with Pluto in Capricorn, we could be rehabbing, recycling and up-cycling. We want to improve and refine, turning trash to treasure and making shit shine.

New Moon Blessings to ALL and Happy Thanksgiving!

Scorpio New Moon

26 Oct

wind-blowing-leaves-wallpaper-4

Scorpio is the sign associated with the mysteries and cycles of life, death and rebirth. We can easily see the living proof of this symbolism looking out our windows this time of year in this part of the world. The falling leaves from the trees that will once again be born anew come spring.

Must be the Season of the Witch…

All things having to do with magick, the occult, spirits, ghosts, psychic experiences and abilities are also in the realm of Scorpio. Scorpio needs to peer into, through, behind and underneath the surface of things; to research and get to the very core of the matter. It is very fitting that we celebrate Samhain and Halloween at this time of year when the veil between worlds is at it’s thinnest. Even the recognizable symbol of Halloween, the jack o’lantern illustrates that we are merely a vessel for the light. This New Moon may seem extra magickal or other worldly as it connects with Neptune in Pisces and falls so close to Samhain.
Scorpio is a water sign, which governs over the emotional realm but the waters of the Scorpion are anything but placid. Churning, choppy and murky is more like it. Scorpio also has dominion over some of our darker qualities such as passion, lust, control, obsession, manipulation, power, anger, rage and jealousy and things that are considered taboo.

Come on baby Don’t fear the Reaper…

Where we find this lunation in our own charts is where we are likely to experience some of these matters or some sort of ending or transformation in our lives. This is the area of our lives where we may need to hit the reset button. You may have to ask yourself questions like: What am I passionate about? Who am I at the very core of my soul? What fills me with rage? What am I trying to control? What in my life needs “die”? What needs to be resurrected? This is a New Moon that is urging us to learn to give up control, let go and go with the flow.

Mercury is conjunct this New Moon in Scorpio and our thoughts and conversations can become deep and complicated. We could find ourselves questioning the deeper mysteries of life or discussions about death, spirituality, psychic experiences, visions, dreams, other worldly things, etc. We could be researching and observing these things. The more we question, the deeper we go, we discover an endless ocean of mystery.

On another level, we could be handling details or paperwork dealing with insurance, wills, estates, taxes, loans, mortgages or joint finances/ventures or even divorce. Words can be used to manipulate and with Neptune in the mix, all is not clear. You could be misinformed, or there could be information missing or omitted or someone is outright trying to manipulate and deceive.

Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Libra are also connecting in a tense aspect and they’ll do this a couple more times in the coming months. These two planets have much in common in the way of our ideals, beliefs, faith, intuition and spirituality. We may need to do some tweaking in these areas especially where it concerns our relationships and other people.

It could be that you’re dazzled by someone or you’ve projected an image onto someone that isn’t the truth of who they are and there is a call to move beyond a particular relationship or a relationship pattern. Maybe you have fallen victim or have been taken advantage of, ignored or overlooked and recognize some of the major compromises that are needed to make relationships or agreements work. Maybe you’re on the short end of the stick and fed up or you’re the one doing the taking and the other person has had enough. Jupiter in Libra seeks to balance things out. Perhaps you are feeling disenchanted, disappointed or disillusioned by some associations and feel the need to move on. It may be that in order to grow in relationships you have to let go of past mistakes or illusions and learn to accept people as they truly are. Jupiter in Libra wants relationships that are genuine, meaningful, honest and authentic and Neptune in Pisces begs us to surrender our illusions.

Venus conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius further emphasizes that we want meaning in our relationships and associations that stand the test of time. We’re not in the mood for hollow connections now. In fact, we may be overly cautious or serious in matters of love. We may also feel conservative in regard to money also or perhaps only spending on things that increase in value over time or perhaps it is that we value time, knowledge and expertise.
Samhain Blessings & Happy Halloweeeeeeeeeeeeeen!!

Aries New Moon

9 Oct

blowing-wind

Things are coming to a head at this Aries Full Moon Super Moon and boy can we feel it!  What a contrast to the last ten months. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon reads, “An open window and a net curtain blowing into a cornucopia”.  It may really feel like a breath of fresh air now and that life is full of abundance, opportunity and possibility.  It may come on quite suddenly and unexpectedly; like the flip of a switch.

Turn and face the strange ch ch changes….

Uranus is very close to this Full Moon so there is a buzzing of excitement and unpredictability.  Changes are happening and they’re happening fast.  There is a feeling that anything goes as we move into the future.  There are new friends and new groups. Networking and technology may also become important to you now. There may be breaks and break throughs, startling insights and revelations, changes are initiated and you may adopt new ways of acting or behaving. Life feels as if it’s  speeding up.

Juno in Scorpio also makes her presence known at this Full Moon and we may be making adjustments and reviving some of our relationships or reforming how we relate to others. Issues of power, control, jealousy, manipulation and abuse as it relates to women or women’s groups may come up now.   Alternatively Juno is also associated with hostessing, hospitality, etiquette, décor, enhancements and the arts; perhaps these matters come into focus for you now.

Well I won’t back down. No I won’t back down. 

You can stand me up at the gates of Hell but I won’t back down.

Mars is the ruler of this Full Moon and is currently in high reaching Capricorn. Mars is moving in on a meet up with powerful Pluto.  This is raw power here and we can move mountains at this time.  We are pushing toward our goals and making progress even if it is not immediately obvious or gratifying.  We could be breaking barriers and reforming structures. There could also be power struggles with authority. Use this energy wisely. 

Mars is also contacting Mercury and Jupiter in Libra and as we are pushing toward our goals, we’re moved to make commitments that stimulate lots of big plans, details, legal paperwork, contracts and negotiations. It is possible that some of these negotiations are also pushing our boundaries or requiring lots of maturity and adulting.  It’s also possible that we’re weighing our options, assessing our situation and what and where to direct our efforts now; motives are deliberate and  we are cautious about which actions we take or we could just be procrastinating and stuck in indecision.

Mars also aligns with the North Node suggesting that the concrete actions that we take, the responsibilities, work and all of details we’re dealing with serve a practical purpose in our future.

Saturn in Sagittarius is also squaring off the Nodal Axis.  This is challenging us to ground in practical wisdom, taking what we have learned from experience, a test of our faith and knowledge, sense of right and wrong  and in how we use our gifts and skills; how we use our intuition and guidance in a way that is practical, useful and of service.  The limitations that we may feel now could be in order to focus on the bigger picture.

Blessings to ALL at this Full Moon!

Libra New Moon

29 Sep

peace-pic

The planetary picture looks and feels a lot different these days.  This may be a sigh of relief to many. Aaaaaaah.  Others may be wondering when things will let up some. This Libra New Moon is the time to regain our balance.  Things may have felt dizzying and unsteady lately but we are beginning to get past this now.  At the time of the Libra New Moon, it’s time to sow the seeds of love, equality, harmony, peace, and inclusiveness.

What’s so funny ‘bout peace love and understanding?

If there is something that you feel is unfair, it will really be a sticking point now. Relationships fall under the domain of Libra too, so you could be pairing up, teaming up, coupling up or collaborating with someone new these days.  This is also a good time to seek out a professional, specialist or consultant such as a lawyer, doctor, gynecologist, decorator, coach or astrologer/energy healer (wink wink) as just a few examples. Alternatively, there could be an opponent or someone working against your interest that comes into focus now.

Generous Jupiter is very close to this New Moon.  Jupiter entered Libra earlier this month for the first time since 2004. You can read my previous post about that here:  http://www.spellboundastrology.com/single-post/2016/09/09/Jupiter-Enters-Libra

Jupiter may have been holding out on some of his benefits as he waits for the Moon to greet him.  The Universe has even given us a rare second New Moon in September for the occasion. Now he is ready to show some of his offerings and wisdom as this New Moon kicks off his yearlong stay. It’s time to get connected. Our opportunities, benefits and growth come from others now.  We can also improve many of our existing relationships now.  Alternatively, it could be that we’ve outgrown certain associations or even relationship patterns and decide it’s time to move on.

Venus in Scorpio is the ruler of this New Moon and is in a favorable aspect to Neptune in Pisces.  This can provide lots of Magickal mystery in matters of love – especially over the weekend.  There could be a deepening of relationships, passion, trust and sharing of visions.  Maybe you feel bewitched and dazzled by someone; as if there is some special connection between you. You could feel intensely enchanted and amorous. Perhaps you have a secret admirer, or you’re the one crushing on someone.  It may also be that you have high ideals and unrealistic expectations from your relationships and loved ones.

This is also a fantastic time for creative projects too; whether its music, art, photography, painting, dance, drama, etc.  Spiritual and psychic senses are heightened now too.  In financial matters, shared resources, mortgages, taxes, loans, credit, inheritances, insurance, etc are highlighted at this time.  There could be confusion surrounding it or something that is unclear or missing. It’s also possible to attract resources now right out of the thin air as if by Magick.

Mars is energizing this New Moon and it may be that our effort toward our goals and to build something long lasting stimulates the need to include others.  Since Jupiter is involved, it’s big. It may be a LOT of effort or a big compromise.  Go big or go home says Mars square Jupiter; just watch that you don’t overdo it.  There could also be legal matters or negotiations. Perhaps we’re weighing our options on some matter; maybe we’re undecided, vacillating and procrastinating, maybe we have to consider alternative views and opinions.  Perhaps you are involved in sales, promotion or advertising or publishing, broadcasting and prospecting clients. It is also possible that there is a boss, parent or some other authority figure that is giving you grief; even blocking your actions, wanting to keep you in your place that sparks some competition or opposition.

Mars has recently moved into Capricorn.  This is a very different energy than we’ve had in a while.  All of 2016, Mars, the driving force behind our actions, has spent his time in Scorpio and Sagittarius.  During that time, we had to dig deep and find if what we wanted and what we were going after was still valid and if it was really true for us. Now our actions are very deliberate, there is substance behind them and they are geared toward the long haul. Some of the moves we make now have staying power as we climb our way to our goals and aspirations.

Saturn in Sagittarius is in a supportive aspect to the New Moon helping to keep us grounded and focused on what matters.

Neptune in Pisces also contacts this New Moon and it may be that surrendering to and releasing some of our faults and flaws now gives way to a more centered and even keeled self.

Mercury is now direct but still in Virgo and opposite Chiron in Pisces, and quincunx Uranus in Aries.  This influence is assisting us with scrutinizing facts and information; continuing to confront flaws, mistakes and weak spots. A critical mind. Altering our perception could yield a break through or in initiating changes and a turning point. There could be a mental excitement and flashing thoughts, feelings, visions and perceptions coming and going quickly.

May you find PEACE at this Libra New Moon and may the Starz always shine upon YOU!

As I walk through
This wicked world
Searchin’ for light in the darkness of insanity.
I ask myself
Is all hope lost?
Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?

And each time I feel like this inside,
There’s one thing I wanna know:
What’s so funny ’bout peace love and understanding? Ohhhh
What’s so funny ’bout peace love and understanding?

And as I walked on
Through troubled times
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes
So where are the strong
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.

Cause each time I feel it slippin’ away, just makes me wanna cry.
What’s so funny ’bout peace love and understanding? Ohhhh
What’s so funny ’bout peace love and understanding?

So where are the strong?
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.

Cause each time I feel it slippin’ away, just makes me wanna cry.
What’s so funny ’bout peace love and understanding? Ohhhh
What’s so funny ’bout peace love and understanding? Ohhhh
What’s so funny ’bout peace love and understanding?

Pisces Lunar Eclipse

14 Sep

dizzy-pic

This Pisces Lunar Eclipse on September 16 is looking to be a time of higher sensitivity, on both the emotional and psychic planes.  There are several complex energies at work now and lot’s going on behind the scenes.  Things that were hidden may come to light. This is a South Node Eclipse so there is a lot coming up that is tied to the past.

Chiron pairs up to this eclipse and it could be very emotional. There is a lot coming up from the depths as we are reconciling many of our past wounds.  OUCH!

This is like a turning point or a threshold.

 Mercury Rx in Virgo is also connected to this eclipse and our critical minds must also confront many images; some quite unpleasant. For some, there could be faded memories coming up of random conversations and thoughts, more dreams or even nightmares, images and feelings running through our minds perhaps going over it again, analyzing it.  Faults, flaws, mistakes, imperfections, inadequacies, addictions, victim mentality, guilt, shame, images, ideals, illusions and delusions all come to light.  If this should happen, surrender to it. Just go with this and be in it for a time instead of trying to escape it and mask it so that you can release it once and for all

We’ve been in a process of purging and this is like the last squeeeeeeeeze, the final push.

There is a lot happening on other planes, on a psychic level.  Many people may not be all that aware of it but there are many people that feel that something is going on.  We may be going over these instances, occurrences, odd experiences and effects in our minds, reviewing, analyzing or questioning some of our experiences; trying to make sense of it.  Good luck as it doesn’t really fit in to our designated box.

We are challenged to strike a balance between some of our higher senses and make practical use of it.

On a more mundane level, we may also be re-doing plans as we need to reconcile it with a much grander vision.  It’s easy to feel overwhelmed.  You might be going over paperwork and getting things sorted and ordered. You could be re-doing, re-ordering or re-working something to bring it closer to your vision but in a way that works in real life not just in our imagination, though it starts there.

The Saturn Neptune square is still very much a part of the energies tied to this eclipse.  We are confronting many fears and illusions and having to get real on many fronts.  Perhaps there is a need to sacrifice something.  Saturn in Sagittarius has been increasing our responsibilities, slowing our growth, limiting our opportunities and narrowing our focus. The lines are blurred and our faith is being tested big time.  On another level, there are porous boundaries now between reality and the fantastic. It’s as if there are holes in our reality constructs, the veil is thinner and time dissolves.   It is difficult to navigate.

Mars the Motivator in Sagittarius connects in a tense angle with this Eclipse.  Our aims are at getting to the truth.

The actions that we take must be aligned with what is true for us; something that we believe in, something that feels right to us.

 If it’s not true for you it’s not going to work.  The challenge is that things are not clear and confusing, there are many unknowns and all the while we want it to work perfectly according to our plans. Aaaaaaaah silly humans!  Not only that but it’s as if we want or need a guarantee and there are none right now.  The only thing getting us by is our faith and belief that we’re on the right track.  But what if we’re not?  Then the fear sets in.  The question, I guess, is to ask yourself if you’re going to manifest a fear based reality or one that is in alignment with who you actually are.  None of this is easy.  In fact, it may be downright fucking terrifying.  Hang in there.

Mars is also square Chiron in Pisces and there may be some zings of truth that needles a sore spot making us want to retreat and escape; whatever escape means to you, drugs, food, sex, sleep, etc. The truth hurts they say and this could be one of those instances.  Watch using the “truth” to hurt people on purpose.  Hurt people hurt so let’s try and be mindful and break this cycle. Go for forgiveness and compassion instead.  We’re truly all in this together. Hold your breath count to ten.

Acceleration

Don’t despair!! As shitty as Mars square Chiron can feel, Mars makes a favorable aspect to Uranus in Aries and we could see a break through, liberation or breaking free. Things feel as though they’re speeding up after the slow pace all year.

There is a push for expansion, exploration and freedom that could give rise to a new awareness and awakenings, and a few aha moments so that you can make adjustments and initiate changes.  There is a new frequency, a new vibration, an excitement. There could also be new friends or groups. Networking and technology could also play a role in this.

Venus is in her own sign of Libra but this Goddess of beauty and love is taking a few hits at the time of this Eclipse.  In matters of love, we could have break-ups, shake-ups or, perhaps there could be someone new and out of the blue. Finances can be unsteady and unstable too.

Alternatively, we could also be connecting with others, attracting support, or have more social engagements with those that have common goals and interests.

It could be that we are sizing up our relationships and important others, we may be assessing what is important to us, or perhaps we are evaluating our finances, we may even be doing an appraisal of our own self-worth. Any and/or all of these things coming up will show us the weak points so that we’re able to do some tweaking, initiate some changes and try to regain our balance.

Dizzy…I’m so dizzy my head is spinning…..

The good thing is that Venus and Mars are in an agreeable aspect so what we desire and how we go about getting it are working harmoniously.  When we evaluate our values and take actions based on what is true and right for us, we feel in alignment. We’re going for honesty and authenticity and willing (or forced) to make the changes to get there.

May the Starz shine upon YOU at this Pisces Lunar Eclipse!

Jupiter Enters Libra

9 Sep

equality-picJupiter enters Libra today, September 9th.  The last time Jupiter was in Libra was back in 2004.  Look back for a common theme. For the past year Jupiter has been in Virgo increasing our powers of discernment, helping us to problem solve and find solutions for ways we can improve our everyday lives.  Now that we’ve cleaned our houses and gotten things in order, we’re now ready to invite others in.

During this next year while Jupiter is in Libra, relationships, business or personal will play a bigger role in our lives now. This includes competitors and those with opposing views.  Perhaps there is a relationship with someone from another culture or abroad, in another country.  Our opportunities and benefits may come through others and we’ll have to learn to get along, cooperate and collaborate with each other.  At this time, we may also feel more supported in our relationships.    Our growth will come through our associations with other people and relationships can be really positive now. Partnerships started now could be really beneficial in the future.  It’s also possible that there is a relationship that you’ve outgrown or a way of relating and/or relationship patterns that are no longer fitting.

Libra is the sign of the scales and while Jupiter is in Libra, we are aiming to Increase the balance, even out the playing field and level things off.  We now want more diplomacy, equality, more give and take and agreements that are fair.  Many social issues dealing with equality and justice will come more into focus during the coming year. Several come to mind.

Increase the peace!!!! Should be our mantra for Jupiter in Libra!  The world sure needs it!

It would be nice to see more generosity, tolerance and tact in the way in which we treat and relate to others as it is a reflection on ourselves anyway.

On the flip side- the scales could tip too far to one side causing extreme imbalance and making it the elephant in the room kind of thing that you must address; you have no choice, you can no longer ignore it and move forward.  The ultimate goal is to come to some kind of compromise; to bring balance, peace and harmony.  It just might take some doing to get there.

If you are dealing with legal issues, an agreement could be reached during this period.

In matters of health, we may see issues related to kidneys, bladder, the urinary tract, diabetes or any kind of imbalance as well as lower back and needing to get things back in alignment.

This could also be a good time to hire a lawyer, consultant, designer/decorator or gynecologist to name a few.

On another level, we may feel really creative at this time.  Our sense of style is heightened now and we could enjoy making things beautiful or luxurious.  There could also be more social opportunities during the next year; contacting and connecting with others more.  We may now want to team up and get input from others.  Watch for competition and comparisons go for inclusiveness and cooperation instead.  We may need to look for alternatives or to look at things from another’s perspective.  We can also agree to disagree as we are all entitled to an opinion and you know what they say about opinions. We have a whole year ahead to benefit from Jupiter’s wisdom so make the best of it!
