The Great American Eclipse in Leo

18 Aug

mermaid moonThe Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st has been nicknamed, The Great American Eclipse due to the path of totality diagonally across the U.S.  It is the thought of Astrologers that the path of the eclipse is an area, geographically, that is most influenced by the eclipse energies.  This Eclipse marks a considerable time that may have some bearing on shaping the events and history of the U.S. and falls very close to a sensitive point in the chart of the U.S president.

All the world is a stage and we are all watching.

So, what does that mean to you?

Eclipses are a big deal in astrology.  Energy spikes during the weeks surrounding the eclipses; time and events seem to accelerate.  Eclipses are the Universe’s way of getting us on path.  Those with planets or points in 26-29 degrees will be activated by this Eclipse but those in the fixed signs, Leo, Aquarius, Taurus or Scorpio will feel this the most.

A Solar Eclipse is also a New Moon, a pumped up and powerful New Moon, a seeding time of new beginnings. It’s also a North Node Eclipse pointing the way far into our future but it’s not an isolated incident, Astrology shows us the cyclical nature of Life and the Universe and this Eclipse is also related to an Eclipse in the same degree back in August of 1998. You can reflect on your life back then and see if a similar theme presents.

The Universe is dishing out a double dose of Leo lessons; this is the second Leo New Moon in a row and it’s a Solar Eclipse.  Rawr!

The Sabian Symbol for the Eclipse degree reads, “A mermaid emerges from the ocean waves, ready for rebirth in human form”.  This symbol implies that there is something coming from deep within the unconscious, taking shape, but you may not yet be totally aware of what it is.  It’s as if there’s been a pause, awaiting and expectation of something coming into being.

The Universe is schooling us on things like ego, pride, self-confidence, leadership, loyalty, follow-through and taking risks.  We’ve had a lot of the Leo energies these days giving us the opportunity to get in touch with our inner essence and our central nature. This second New Moon Solar Eclipse is a rare and powerful opportunity to co-create what it is that’s in your heart.  There may have been issues coming into awareness, getting your attention, teaching you the difference between what is truly you and yours and something that’s been assigned, labeled or inherited by family or society. These energies are prompting you to get in touch with doing the things that you’re most passionate about, that give you joy and pleasure whether or not you receive recognition or approval and to Just do you.  

Mars in Leo continues to stoke the flames of creativity, passion, drama, flash and show or perhaps even the angry inner child.  Mars has a positive link with Jupiter in Libra and connects favorably with Saturn in Sagittarius suggesting that your creative initiatives and heart felt actions can create opportunities for collaborative efforts, to improve relations or move beyond them, readily using an abundance of caution, focus, concentration, discipline and some serious honesty and maturity.  You may have gained experience and wisdom and by now you know a thing or two about a thing or two. Use that.  Saturn will turn direct just a few days after this Eclipse on August 25th and you can start to move forward on some of your goals and ambitions.

Uranus in fellow fire sign Aries is in a favorable aspect to this Eclipse and things are moving fast and changing quickly.  There is a buzz of excitement and element of surprise and unpredictability.  You may be able to liberate your creative genius or take a quantum leap in developing your talents, abilities and self-mastery.  There’s a new vibration or frequency enabling a blossoming of your personal power. You could be asserting your independence and expression of your emotions.  You might also enjoy new friends or groups centered around children, play or creativity or some other cause or movement that tugs at your heart.

The Wounded Healer, Chiron in Pisces also sends some vibes to this Eclipse suggesting a needed shift of any arrogance and self-importance to humility and compassion without minimizing yourself. It may be time to make some character adjustments surrendering those injured parts, weaknesses and mistakes.  There’s no need to let those things keep you small and from realizing your potential. These lessons help to yield a self that is more vital, warm, confident and radiant.

Ceres in Cancer is opposite Pluto in Capricorn creating a face-off between our nurturing needs, sense of belonging, nostalgia, security and things that are familiar with the trust, betrayal and/or abuse of authority and the fundamental make-over that’s been underway.  On another level, there may be matters dealing with women’s issues, child rearing and early education or our food that’s bumping heads with the powers that be or topics dealing with the workforce and rules and regulations.

Blessings and Good Vibes to ALL at this Spectacular Solar Eclipse!

Leo New Moon

21 Jul

leo heartThis is the first of two New Moons in fiery Leo.  All things Leo are in the limelight as we’re set to get a double dose of the Lion’s share. Next month, we’ll also have a Leo New Moon Solar Eclipse.  It is a BIG deal when the Universe puts so much emphasis on one sign.  Next month’s Eclipse has been nicknamed The Great American Eclipse, due to the path it takes across the U.S.  and it will play a key role in shaping the destiny of the U.S.  Leo is also the sign associated with the heart and the Universe is nudging you to get in touch with and act upon what is in your heart.

There’s a fertile atmosphere at this New Moon; romantic or artistic beginnings are in the air now.  Mars the Motivator is arm and arm with this New Moon, igniting the flames of passion and creativity. You may be ready to take inspired action and risks or perhaps there’s a moment of willful, theatrical emotional expression.  It could be that your aims are on fun and enjoyment; parties, recreation, celebrations, hobbies and vacations are in order.  It’s also an appropriate time to get in touch with your essence, your essential nature and play with your inner child. What makes you feel happy, vital and alive? What talent or knack do you have that is central to your being?  What makes you feel special? Or gets you noticed or admired? What do you take pride in? On the flip side, it’s best to beware of getting roped in to any of the negative Leo behaviors like being overly dramatic, arrogant or needing constant attention and approval thinking the Universe revolves around you.

Uranus in Aries elbows this Lunation, creating some excitement or a need to break out, do something differently or out of character.

Mercury and the North Node in Leo connect with Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius (in a wider orb).  There may be brilliantly creative and innovative ideas or break through information or conversations that are stimulating and inspiring, with flashes of insight and intuition and an ability to concentrate and focus on the truth, the meaning and the larger picture and set a future course.

Venus in Gemini is opposite Saturn in Sagittarius suggesting that there may be a desire for variety or maybe you’re enjoying certain distractions that is conflicting with the need to heighten your focus, concentrate and commit. There also may be multiple relationships, contacts, associations or agreements to reconcile with the many responsibilities, growing resistance or sizable obstacles that you must face.

You may also enjoy chit chatting, news, gossiping and socializing that is met with a lack of concrete knowledge, limited world views or an obstruction of the truth.  Alternatively, you may be surprised what you can learn from an everyday exchange in conversation having wisdom, experience, guidance and meaning.

New Moon Blessings to ALL!

Gemini New Moon

19 May

gemini perspective

There is a lot happening in the sky these days and lots going on energetically leading up to this New Moon in Gemini on May 25th.  Gemini is a cerebral, communicative sign overseeing our perceptions and how we process information.  But Gemini is also a sign of duality; symbolized by the Twins.  It can be trickster energy using words and facts to manipulate or it can fall into excessive questioning.  This New Moon is in a critical degree and it may be that we need to adjust our dials and shift our perspective a bit to see another side to a story or situation.

Mercury the ruler of this New Moon is in Taurus and our minds may be stable and able to grasp information thoroughly.  Plans and conversations can have some substance behind them now and you may have to back up your words.  Alternatively, there could be bull headedness and stuck thoughts, heels dug in not giving ground on a point or an issue.

Neptune in Pisces connects with Mercury in Taurus, so all is not clear or someone may be bluffing.   Alternatively, this can be a creative influence laying down solid plans to a distant vision.

There is a lot of tension putting the squeeze on relationships with Venus in Aries, opposite Jupiter in Libra and square Pluto in Capricorn.  Suggesting that going after our own interests or wanting to go solo conflicts with cooperative agreements and associations. There is the need to correct any deficiencies. There is powerful resistance to the threat of old ways or to a consolidation of power, and a need to remove obstacles, reform, restructure, restore, revive and renew.  It benefits us to be cooperative and inclusive, to connect and collaborate with others, if we can get over what is standing in the way and still have our own interests met in the process.

What has power over you?  Where are you resistant?

Pallas in Aries and Juno in Capricorn also make their presence known in this configuration and we may see new relationship strategies; perhaps even politically or legal mediation or with women’s groups or minority groups that fires up some of the longer term or traditional associations. Again, there is a push to recreate the framework of relationships, relationship patterns, connections or arrangements at a new level and to eliminate what stands in the way.

Saturn in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries and the North Node in Leo form a fiery Grand trine in the sky at this New Moon. This time is seeded with energies that assist in creating a future path with heart, that feels authentic and is a true expression of ourselves; enabling a blending of the old with the new allowing us to make constructive changes.  There is a concentrated metamorphosis, an artful shift that is happening and we can make changes that are grounded and long standing with a nice blend of freedom and responsibility, of innovation, automation and management. We can create some room to move within the setup or systems.

Mars in Gemini is moving into an opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius just days after this New Moon but you will feel it already. This is a very frustrating aspect and patience is needed.  It may be that you want to make swift progress as there are multiple pursuits but instead you’re forced to slow down, faced with increasing responsibilities and sizable obstacles.  Maybe you have something to say or are forced to speak but your words are met with a lot of resistance, rigid opinions and limited world views.  Perhaps there is too much chit chat and small talk and a lack of meaning in what is being said that is causing frustration.  It may also be that there’s reasoning and rationalizing away a point that brings to light a lack of ethics, judgment or truth.

New Moon Blessings to All!

Aries New Moon

24 Mar

warrior womanWe should start to feel a definite contrast to some of the challenging Energies we’ve been dealing with these past weeks.  The last New Moon in Pisces may have been an emotional time, with unfinished business coming up or old emotions and patterns that rose to the surface to be handled once and for all.  Then we had the Virgo Full Moon which had its set of challenges as we may have only been looking at everything that was wrong and clueless as to how to handle it.  If you felt that you were at the point of surrender, worry no more as relief is on the way! This is a potent New Moon helping us to feel animated and alive.

The New Moon in Aries on March 27th is a time for sowing seeds, new beginnings and fresh starts.  Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac making this the first New Moon in the Wheel of The Year.  We now have the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Uranus all touring the sign of the Ram helping to energize and fire us up. We could feel ready to get things underway and take action or impatient to get the ball rolling.

Venus retrograde is closely linked to this New Moon putting relationships front and center. Our Goddess of beauty and love has been wearing the mask of the warrior woman lately. War paint and all! We’re willing to fight for what we want, stand up for ourselves or act in our own interests.  And we’re okay with pissing off a few people in the process if need be. During her about-face, we’ve been given the time to think about what it is that we want for ourselves, how we assert ourselves, what we want out of our relationships, how we may have given into too many compromises, how we are appreciated, loved or valued, or not, and most importantly, how we love and value ourselves.  If feeling undervalued and underappreciated, time to look at your relationship with yourself.  Start there.  Everything else is a mirror. The seeds sown at this time will be infused with this Venus energy.

Juno is at a Critical Degree in Capricorn further emphasizing partnerships especially those involving long term commitments or business.

Mars is the ruler of this Aries New Moon and is in Earthy Taurus.  This makes us motivated toward material gain and building up something tangible.

Mars in Taurus also connects positively with Neptune in Pisces and there is a lot of potential for creativity.  We can begin to take real steps and to make sustained efforts in building something that we’ve long envisioned.

Mars and Juno also have a favorable connection so we may be taking steps in establishing a business partnership or the framework of a lasting union or agreement.

The days leading up to this New Moon, Mercury the Messenger faces off with Jupiter in Libra and then links up with Uranus in Aries.  This can bring exciting conversations, unexpected news, big plans and electrifying ideas, perhaps you suddenly have an “aha” moment and see the bigger picture.  Information may be coming in quickly, perhaps requiring a change of plans or mind. Talks could also get a bit heated; maybe you hear something shocking or someone verbally attacks you, maybe you get good news out of the blue or there could be unexpected changes in documents or paperwork; this may involve agreements, legal issues, promotion, advertising or network marketing or perhaps relations with friends and people in a new and wider social circle or groups you’re involved with.

Mercury is also in favorable aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius, suggesting that these insights, talks and ideas are in accord with our future goals. Mentally, we can be innovative as well as disciplined, perhaps even learning something new with technology.

Saturn in Sagittarius is still so close to the Galactic Center; the Center of our Galaxy from which Divine inspiration and guidance come forth.  Saturn manifests and materializes and this gives us a tremendous opportunity in the co-creation of our lives.  Saturn hasn’t been to this part of the Zodiac in nearly three decades so it is a big deal!   Some of us may have noticed that our manifestations are happening more quickly or perhaps we are more easily tuning into a higher guidance; this makes it very important to be mindful of what we are creating as it is our responsibility. Saturn will linger in this area as he is getting ready to retrograde on April 6th   through August 25th.  During his backtracking, we may have to review or revisit some of our goals and what success means to us, making sure everything is in alignment with our Truth. Saturn will once again connect with the Galactic Center in November, after that, Saturn won’t visit this area again until late 2046!

Just a few days after this New Moon, on March 30th, Jupiter in Libra will square Pluto in Capricorn for the second time.  This is one of those aspects that are shaping our current times especially with social changes and government structures. We see an increasing opposition challenging a consolidation of power and a need for a reformation of rules, policies and structures that are more fair and inclusive as well as mutually beneficial.

On a more personal level, this can mean that there are benefits and opportunities gained through others but the challenge is to tear down some of the walls we’ve build and to have faith in others.

Blessings to All at this Aries New Moon!

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!

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!

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!!

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?

Leo New Moon

2 Aug

leofirepicWe may start to feel fired up and frisky at this New Moon in fiery Leo.  The sky is lit up with some fiery energies now.  The spirit of the Lion focuses on things that are heart centered, fun and creative; the things that bring us pleasure and joy, including children and romantic encounters.  This is also the time of year to  get in touch with those things that make us special; the things that make you uniquely and authentically you; whatever talents and/or a knack for this or that that it may be.  The Lion is proud and confident; perhaps part of your life could use a boost in confidence and vitality.  On the flip side of that, although it is good to be proud, confident and full of self-esteem, we need to be mindful of turning people off by being a braggart, showoff and/or arrogant.

The New Moon in Leo gets involved in the clash between structured Saturn and nebulous Neptune that we’ve been dealing with all year.  This configuration has us testing our faith and our knowledge of what we believe reality is as well as being able to manifest some of our long held dreams and visions.

This New Moon is in a favorable aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius, supporting some of our creative projects.  We could even see a completion to some of the large obstacles we may have experienced as of late.  There is still a need to increase our discipline and cut back on anything excessive or extravagant.  This theme of cutting back will continue for a while.  Saturn has been in retrograde motion for the last several months.  During this time it was necessary to consider our goals for the future as well as what success means to us personally.  Saturn will turn to direct motion in less than two weeks but is already in the degree that he’ll station in. This is giving a concentrated focus to this part of the chart and affects those that have planets or angles at or near 9 degrees of a mutable sign- Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces the most.

Neptune and the North Node in Pisces also connects with this Leo New Moon suggesting that releasing and surrendering some of those images, illusions, masks or ideals of the past yields a more authentic form of self-expression. Many of the things of the past that have held us back or that have contributed to our own undoing may give way to a self that is more confident and self-actualized.

Mars the Motivator has moved back into fellow fire sign Sagittarius and is now in direct motion; this gives us some momentum to push forward.  We may be feeling more adventurous wanting to get out and explore more, even if only in the mind, or we could even be traveling and vacationing.  With Mars in Sagittarius, our actions may be more future oriented, rooted in our truth or on what we now know or have recently discovered.  Alternatively, it could be that we push too far too fast or perhaps someone is being arrogant and pushy or forceful and angry in their beliefs and opinions.

We have even more fiery energies as Venus in Leo is in a favorable aspect to Uranus in Aries.  We could attract attention from both lovers and friends with this aspect; some even quite unexpected.   We may also desire more good times and freedom or we may feel extra creative leading to some kind of a break through.

Finally, we also have an opposition between Juno in Scorpio and Ceres in Taurus suggesting that our relationships may be deepening and evolving, some may even be ending; and this is requiring integration as we are establishing our sense of belonging.  Jealousy and possessiveness could also play a role where our relationships are concerned.

Blessings to ALL at this New Moon!

Gemini New Moon

31 May

gemini imageWhoa! This New Moon on June 4th has a lot going on. Be open to being open and be prepared to multi-task! We now have several planets putting their two cents in as this New Moon aligns in the Mutable Grand Cross pattern.

Here’s the break-down: Venus, the Sun and Moon link up together in the same degree of Gemini at this time. The other three planets involved in this pattern, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune are slower moving and have been connecting with each other all year. We seem to be pulled in different directions simultaneously making it difficult to commit to any one in particular. This is posing a challenge and we may feel restless, scattered and lack focus. The key is to remain flexible and adaptable. There is a lot of change, movement and adjustment needed at this time in many areas of our lives. This is a contrast to the energies of the last few years where we had a lot of changes; some of those changes may have been sudden, unexpected, revolutionary, fated and irrevocable. Now, the current changes are more about making the adjustments to a new normal ; this is more of a transitional period at the end of a cycle before we begin anew. It is also a year number Nine in Numerology which symbolizes completion. The Universe is giving us the opportunity to slow down, get our ducks in a row so that we can wrap things up before moving on to the next phase.

This New Moon is in the cerebral sign Gemini. Gemini energies govern how we perceive information and communicate. At the time of this New Moon we are to sow seeds in these areas. Its as if we are being challenged now in the way that we think and speak. You may want to ask yourself what type of inner dialogue that you have going on that’s based on outdated patterns of belief that hold you back and keep you blind to the Truth.

The Universe is giving us two Full Moons in Sagittarius, the sign of the Seeker. We’ve had one already. At the last Full Moon we may have seen a turning point where our beliefs and opinions are concerned. Maybe something came to light for you. Perhaps we found ourselves questioning some of the things we thought were true, or our internal sense of right and wrong, and our judgment scale to make sure that we still feel that way…or not. Now at this Gemini New Moon we can sow our seeds so that our thinking is aligned with our Truth. If perception creates our reality, then we better get clear on what we think and believe. Right?

Mercury is the ruler of this New Moon and is now moving forward in Taurus. This may have our thoughts grounded and providing us with enough mental stability to be able to keep plodding along. Alternatively, it may be that in some areas of our lives, we are mentally stuck, spinning our wheels.

Mars the Motivator is still retrograde, now in the sign of Scorpio and making his way to a confrontation with Mercury in Taurus. This is enabling us to dive into murkier waters so we may penetrate the core of some of the darker aspects of life. The kind of things that ignite our passion or spark feelings of jealously, resentment, bitterness, hatred, violence etc. so we can try to understand where these feelings originate from, what affect it has and what we can do about it. This may allow us to recognize and let go of these things so that we can establish new patterns of reasoning.

Venus is very close to this New Moon and we may be attracting communications and interactions with others. Maybe we’re bouncing ideas off of others or need the opinion of someone older and more experienced. Perhaps we have some friendly chats with neighbors or maybe we are spending time with siblings. We may desire variety or swiftness at this time. Nothing will be happening as fast as we want and we may not be able to keep up if it did. It’s also possible that we are enjoying gossiping, small talk, or just driving around the neighborhood or close by, running errands here and there. It could also be that we are captivated by certain facts or enjoy learning something now. You may even be dealing with financial documents calling for some legal authority or advice.

Saturn Rx in Sagittarius is across the sky and has his say at this New Moon. This suggests we may have to integrate some new thoughts or facts into a limited world view or they may even go head to head with some rigid opinions. Gemini energies are a bit superficial, skimming the surface while Sagittarius wants to get at the meaning behind the words; and Saturn here demands it. Saturn has been testing our faith and our knowledge lately as well as our grasp on reality. Saturn also demands that we slow our growth, cut excess, take responsibility and to find the meaning of our experiences in ordinary every day life and to see the interconnected oneness and significance while integrating this into our thinking. This may seem to run counter to Gemini’s fickle nature and need to compartmentalize.

We may also be gaining experience, increasing our authority, stepping up with accountability or playing a bigger role; this is stimulating a need to get organized, increase efficiency, take on more in our schedules, problem solve and make improvements as is suggested by Jupiter in Virgo.  At the same time, Neptune in Pisces has us dreaming a dream and challenging us to manifest it into reality. There is a larger distant vision that we’re working toward. This requires a lot of work and step by step practical application. We just need to beware of some of our vices and bad habits or of piquing any blind spots or weak points.

This New Moon also makes a quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn which suggests that we’ll be tweaking our thinking and making adjustments. Some of our limitations may have to give way to a new dialogue being written. We can rise up to the challenge and turn some of those limitations and perceived weaknesses into our strength and power.

Blessings to ALL at this New Moon!
