Cancer New Moon

21 Jun

Ruby_slippers.6983122_stdThe New Moon in Cancer puts home and family front and center.  This is the time of year to seed intentions on the domestic scene.  You may enjoy retreating to your nest or creating one and being with those closest to you. The Moon is in her own sign in Cancer, raising emotions and sensitivity, perhaps bringing out your mothering and nurturing traits. You could be feeling moody, nostalgic or connected with the past and things that are familiar.

 

Mercury is close to this New Moon in Cancer and you may want to talk about your feelings or memories of the past; perhaps you visit with your family, talking about old times and telling stories. Maybe your mind is on matters or patterns linked to the past and how it influences your current life’s circumstances.

Mars in Cancer, Jupiter in Libra and Juno in Capricorn are engaged in a tense pattern bringing energy and activity to your headquarters. Maybe you’re involved in home improvement projects and plan to make your place more pleasing.

On another level, this pattern can put a strain on relationships.  Jupiter and Juno have a history, in mythology, they were married but their union was anything but easy. They were constantly challenging and testing each other and had frequent separations.   You may see this reflected in your personal world now.  You may be quick to act on your emotions or have gut reactions, especially if there is a threat to your security, aiming to protect yourself, making moves on instinct and bumping heads with any committed, long term or traditional associations and agreements. Jupiter in the mix inflates the issue. Too many compromises and acting in habitual patterns makes it difficult to remain even keeled.  For the past nine months, Jupiter has been in Libra, teaching us the importance of relationships, cooperation, fair agreements, being inclusive and having relationships and agreements that are meaningful, authentic and in alignment with our truth.  This pattern puts pressure on this issue in order to even it up, level up and restore the balance.

Neptune’s nebulous energies are also pulled into the mix, blurring the lines suggesting that in pursuit of the past, there may be some variations in the way that you recall a relationship or romantic situation.  Perhaps you feel like you’ve been victimized, betrayed, duped or deceived or maybe you felt like spiritual soul mates. All is not clear and there could be an over-idealization of the person or the encounter. You may have to learn to deal with others as they genuinely are and not who you imagine them to be. Or who knows?  Maybe you have a subtle knowing of things happening on other planes or places, in other times, in other spaces.  Everything is possible.

Other good news is that Venus, the goddess of beauty and love is in her own sign of Taurus and makes a favorable connection to Pluto in Capricorn.  This suggests that you can attract your desires for funds, affection or appreciation and eliminate obstacles with ease.  Taurus and Capricorn are both Earth signs, lending stability and implying that your results will be apparent and evident.

New Moon Blessings to All!!

Libra Full Moon -Grace Under Pressure

7 Apr

diamonds_1024

March was a difficult month and although April has it’s set of challenges; several planets will be retrograde suggesting a need to slow down and cover old ground.

Saturn in Sagittarius will Rx April 6th through August 25th.  This is a time to look inward and ask what success means to you, do your goals align with your Truth? Do you believe in what you’re doing career wise or “out there” in the world? We can also ask ourselves what beliefs we have that our limiting us and how we may move beyond that.

Mercury in Taurus will Rx April 9th through May 3rd and we may be re-thinking or re-planning where our finances, earnings and expenses are concerned as well as what we need to feel comfortable and secure.  It is also a time to consider where we may be stuck in our mindset or perhaps time to probe questions of our own self-worth and how that may be inhibiting or contributing to our wealth.

Venus is still Rx now in Pisces and will turn Direct on April 15thTax Day here in the U.S.  During her backtrack, we’ve been given the opportunity to re-evaluate what it is that we want, what we want from others as well as what we’re willing to give.

Pluto will retrograde later in the month, April 20th through September 28th.  Pluto is an outer planet, one that shapes generations but it’s change in direction may not be as apparent as say, a Mercury Rx period but nevertheless it still serves a purpose.  During this period, we may be restructuring on an inner level, reforming some of our inner framework; perhaps on what we glean from going back and going within.

The Full Moon on April 11th is at 21 degrees Libra.  Relationships, agreements and negotiations will be in the spotlight at this Full Moon and without a doubt, there will be some challenges and changes now, some quite unexpected.

Three planets are bearing down hard on this Full Moon; Jupiter in Libra, Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn have a major influence now.  The typical Libra energies of balance, politeness and poise get tossed out the window in this current energy weather.

As we want our relationships, associations, agreements and arrangements to be fair and equitable, in alignment with our Truth, with what we believe and with our sense of right and wrong, we may be willing to make a break for it and go solo or make some big and radical changes as we come up against a consolidation of power or needing to reform rules, structures and policies which no longer apply in this situation.  We may see breakups and shakeups, radical revisions, renege or renegotiations on a deal, power struggles and strange or unusual alliances.

Venus, the ruler of this Full Moon goes direct in just a few more days on April 15th but she will linger in this degree for several days.  Our goddess of beauty and love is getting the smack down as she is approaching a meetup with Chiron in Pisces and square Saturn in Sagittarius; while Saturn is still conjunct the Galactic Center.

We may need to clear some karmic relationship ties and patterns; and the meaning of an experience, perhaps with a past association, may become clear now. We may be made aware of our injured parts dealing with relationships and self-worth as it may be activated by limiting beliefs. There could be issues related to abandonment, separateness or feelings of not being enough. Maybe you fall into savior victim mode in relationships and it becomes clear that not everyone wants or needs saving. Alternatively, maybe no one wants to keep bailing you out.

Venus in Pisces is very idealistic when it comes to love and relationships; wanting the perfect love, the universal love, the soul mate, the unavailable or unattainable. It may seem as if our real relationships are disappointing, never measure up or a feeling as if there is something missing. It may also be that this is how we feel about ourselves. Chiron may show us, in a not so pleasant way, how that has caused us to suffer and Saturn in Sagittarius lends a big dose of reality.  The reality is that no one person or relationship is perfect no matter how fated it feels.

Venus also governs over things of value and money and we may be very fearful of loss, not having enough, doing without or failing; feeling insecure and that there is just so much to do, so many responsibilities, so many obstacles, again, this may be based on limiting beliefs and scarcity consciousness.

Mars and Ceres in Taurus connect with this Full Moon suggesting that we may need to do some tweaking with our efforts at establishing a place, a sense of belonging or a Tribe and to make certain that we reach out, have an even exchange and meaningful connections that are in alignment. On another level, this may suggest that there is a need to correct an imbalance requiring some adjustments in the way that we nurture ourselves, our diet and how to act to stabilize things.  This may also have to do with Women’s gynological issues like periods, pregnancy or menopause or with the Thyroid.  This is also related to feeling comfortable in our bodies, our body image and sense of self-worth.

Blessings to ALL at this Full Moon!

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!

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!

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?

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!

Taurus Full Moon

24 Oct

worth

Taurus Full Moon

The Taurus Full Moon on October 27th is a time of the year when we must reconcile our need for acquisition and consumption with our need to let go.  There may be much that we’ve been holding on to in the name of ‘security’ or comfort and the time has come to release it.  It may be something material, a relationship, an idea or even a habit or belief that no longer serves us.  Be brave.  Confront it. Let it go.  Both Taurus (Moon) and Scorpio (Sun) deal with issues of security; Taurus deals with material security and Scorpio emotional security.  At the time of this Taurus Full Moon, it may come to light the things that we’ve been holding onto that must be released.

What issues may have come up for you? 

This Full Moon may also mark a turning point in any financial matters as both Taurus and Scorpio are money signs.  Worth equals wealth ~ know that YOU ARE WORTHY!

Saturn the Task Master and Manifestor makes his presence felt at this Full Moon.  Saturn in Sagittarius has us consolidating, curbing our enthusiasm, slowing our growth, focusing on our future, limiting our opportunities and any excess while testing our faith. It seems we’ll need to make adjustments accordingly where our finances are concerned.  We’re now shouldering more responsibility and there is a need to cut back.  It is a time to slow down, take deliberate action and to have more meaningful experiences.

This Full Moon is also in a favorable aspect with Neptune in Pisces giving potential to create our vision slowly, one step at a time or on the flip side, to unravel everything that’s been built.

It is also a time to value, appreciate and marvel at the mystery of the interconnectedness and oneness in ALL.  Create something Magickal!

Taurus is ruled by the love planet Venus, so issues surrounding relationships and appreciation continue to surface so that we may reconcile them and put them to rest once and for all.  Right now Venus is in Virgo, not her favorite sign to be in and she’s in opposition to Chiron in Pisces and quincunx to Uranus in Aries.  We may be made aware of underlying psychological issues that affect our relationships with others and to ourselves and how we may begin to heal. By bringing this unpleasantness to awareness, being present with it and sending it healing energy and  love we can break free from feelings of insecurity, inferiority, shame and a lack of self-worth that keep us imprisoned. Let go of the need to be overly critical or desiring perfection. We can help the process of healing by realizing that we are all one and we are all in this together.  This is hard work but we are changing the world one person at a time starting with ourselves! Healing ourselves and how we relate to one another helps heal the world. It is time to move beyond some of these things that may cause stress, anxiety or depression that then finally manifest in physical disease. Dis-ease!

When my Taurus Sun son was very small, just starting to talk, he would spread himself on the sofa and frantically yell, “I’m stuck! I’m stuck! I’m stuck! I would have to drop everything I was doing and help him get himself ‘unstuck’, peeling him from the sofa and then I’d reassure him that he wasn’t stuck at all.  I would show him how easily he could ‘free’ himself. After several months he finally outgrew that.  At the time of this Full Moon ask yourself where you have been stuck.  Often it goes on without realizing it because it’s been hidden from our awareness, operating unconsciously. Commit to letting go and freeing yourself.

Blessings to ALL at this Full Moon!

P.S The time of the Taurus Full Moon is a good time to show gratitude and appreciation.  Big Love and Big Thanks to all of you that read and subscribe.  I would soooo appreciate it if you would share the love and spread the word.

Shine Bright and Reach for the Starz!!

Libra New Moon

12 Oct

libra 1

Relationships were a major theme in the last Full Moon Lunar Eclipse and continue to be a dominant theme at this Libra New Moon. 

After last month’s Lunar Eclipse energy, we’ve dealt with some endings, or perhaps something was illuminated or revealed having to do with relationships.  We may have decided or discovered that we can no longer go on solely with our own agenda and that we need to include others. We need to collaborate and cooperate!  It may have also been that some of our personal commitments ran counter to our relationship commitments.  There could also be a culmination to some of the projects that we’ve initiated or had involvement in recently.

This New Moon in Libra is opposite Uranus in Aries and our need for collaboration or cooperation may face off with the need for unique individuality.  There is electricity in the air and an element of unpredictability with Uranus involved. Agreements could be difficult to come by. There could even be sudden breaks in relationships or agreements seemingly out of the blue.  Or perhaps it is time to break free from any tendencies toward codependency in relationships.  It could also be that you insert yourself into a group with common goals and interests and collaborate on a project, or maybe you are a leader within a group or organization or singled out in a crowd for a social or fashion faux pas or for being different or unconventional.  Perhaps you are singled out in a favorable manner too.  There could be an opponent or competition that takes you by surprise or even a surprise attack.

The New Moon is also quincunx Chiron in Pisces and adjustments need to be made where we may feel victimized, taken advantage of or overlooked by others.  We can learn that cooperation means coming to agreement and balance.  It doesn’t mean someone has to totally give up on their dreams and ideals nor should it be that only one person is always giving in.  See which way the scales have been tipping for you and your important others and work at leveling them out.  We may have to initiate some changes in order to come to a compromise and even things out.

Mercury has recently gone direct and is conjunct the North Node at the time of this New Moon.  Many of our conversations and agreements could point the way to our future path although we may still be covering old ground.  Pay attention to what is said.

Venus in Virgo is square Saturn in Sagittarius and it may be that our love for what is practical or useful stimulates our discipline and has us cutting back.  Also our desire for purity and perfection may have us limiting any excess.  Saturn is recently back in Sagittarius after retrograding in Scorpio for the last several months.  At this time we are working to solidify our goals for the future and narrow our focus and our options and possibly increasing our work load and responsibilities.

Jupiter and Pluto are also meeting in a trine.  Powerful stuff here.  This influence lends the power to transform structures and eliminate blocks as we work toward our future.  Mars in Virgo is moving closer to a conjunction with Jupiter indicating that our actions are geared toward improvement and efficiency.  Mars gives this already powerful trine much more oomph and energy.  We’re motivated to push beyond boundaries and fears and given the opportunity to eliminate them or to transform them and use as our strength. We have the opportunity to pierce through and penetrate a powerful resistance.  There is much much work to be done but we’re happy to have the opportunity.  Now is the time for practical pursuits as we are working toward the future.

Blessing to All at this New Moon!

Libra Lunar Eclipse

3 Apr

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on April 4th could be a difficult one.  Luna finds herself at odds with the ongoing square between Uranus and Pluto.  Although just a few weeks ago did we see the last of seven squares between these two Cosmic Heavy Weights, (they’ve been at odds since 2012!) this eclipse illuminates these energies and reminds us that we are not yet “out of the woods”. In fact, this eclipse hovers close to some of the points of the Cardinal Grand Cross of last April. So you may see remnants of issues that surfaced then. Hopefully this marks a culmination to the lessons we were to learn during these last few years of intense change.  This Eclipse falls at 14’24” Libra indicating that we need to strike a balance between self-assertion and compromise, the need to act in our own best interests vs the need to relate to another.  What can happen is hard to say especially with Uranus conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon at this time.  Expect the unexpected.  That doesn’t mean that we should be fearful.  A lot depends on where things have been heading for you during these last few years.  If you know your chart, you can check and see if you have any planets or angles within a couple degrees of 14 degrees of any Cardinal sign since those signs will feel the most stress (Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn).  Libra is the relationship sign but with Uranus in Aries opposite this Libra Lunar Eclipse, there is an urge to assert individuality and uniqueness; or a need to break free so cooperation, negotiations or coming to some kind of agreement could be difficult to say the least.  It could be that there is an opponent or someone or something acting counter to your interest that shows up quite suddenly and surprisingly.  Venus is the ruler of this eclipse but makes no major aspects during this time, giving the goddess of beauty, love, relationships, peace and harmony a bit of a ‘wild horse’ energy.  Jupiter is in a favorable alignment with this Eclipse which could be a protective influence or it could just make the issue larger than life.  With Jupiter involved, there could be legal issues, opportunities for travel, or even to learn something new and out of the ordinary and these opportunities and situations may come seemingly out of the blue.  There could be issues involving fairness, ethics, the law, our own personal truth, “right and wrong” as well as religious or spiritual beliefs that could also surface at this time. A good example may be the new law passed in Arkansas that allows a business to deny service to same sex couples due to religious beliefs. This is sparking much debate and outrage throughout several states.

Either way it appears this Eclipse could bring in some big changes for better or worse. At this time it is best to be flexible and open.  If you can avoid or delay major decisions, that may be best as the situation could be very changeable.

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio

23 Oct

THE POWER OF LOVE

This New Moon Solar Eclipse falls in the very beginning (zero degrees) of Scorpio, the sign the sign of death and regeneration.  It is a time of endings and new beginnings. This Eclipse seems to be pretty positive which is a welcomed reprieve.  If things don’t feel that way to you, give it a little time and things should be looking up.

Venus, the planet of beauty and love is close to this Eclipse, at the same degree, putting relationships in the spotlight once again.  To me, this seems to indicate some sort of ‘reset’ button where relationships are concerned. All relationships even the platonic ones.  We get an opportunity to start over in a way.  All of 2014 has had some degree of this relationship theme of to it.  With the Nodes in the Aries/Libra polarity for some time now, we’ve been learning how to get along with others and what we need from them.  We’ve been learning how we can be an individual and still work with others as well as learning that the actions that we take affect other people.  It’s not just about us; the world does not revolve around us.  We are realizing that there are others out there and that we want and need them in our lives.  No man (or woman) is an island.

It may be that at some point in the recent past, there have been changes and shifts where our relationships are concerned.  The changes may even be coming from within; possibly with our attitudes about the important people in our lives.   Some relationships may have recently ended. Perhaps because we have outgrown it or have come to the conclusion that it is not what we want or that it is no longer fitting for the person we are becoming.  Perhaps it was the other person that decided to leave.  Maybe you have been re-considering lately what is important to you in regard to relationships with others.  Possibly asking yourself questions like: what do I want in a relationship? How do I want to be treated? What do I need or expect in my dealings with others? What am I willing to give/give up or to put up with?  How do the relationships in my life make me feel about myself?  How do I treat others?  How do others respond to me? These may be some of the questions occupying our minds lately.  It is just as important to check in on your relationship to yourself, feelings about self-love and self-worth.

With Venus in Scorpio so close to this Eclipse feelings could be passionate and lusty.  Desires, attraction and magnetism are strong with this placement.  Venus in Scorpio is attracted to those that they feel they can love, trust and share with at a very deep and personal level.  There’s nothing superficial or hollow about this influence.   You could feel magnetically attracted to someone at this time with a feeling that you are fated to meet them.  This Eclipse along with Venus makes a lovely connection with Neptune in Pisces producing an enchanting almost Magickal vibe.  Keep your ESP sharp and your psychic antennae up and see what messages you receive. This combination is also very good for creativity and the arts.  Perfect for some spooky Halloween fun. 

Venus not only rules over love and relationships but also over our values and money in particular.  Venus in Scorpio is strong financially.  It may be at this time that you are able to attract certain financial resources.  Perhaps you are getting a loan or mortgage, settling an estate or an insurance claim, a divorce settlement or compensation for some other goods or services as a few examples.

Pallas is also so prominent at this Eclipse so that we are able to see the bigger picture and cut to the core of any psychological issues in the way we relate to others; such as any barriers keeping us from getting close, fears of intimacy or commitment etc. and how we may change that by using new strategies.  Saturn has also been in Scorpio for the last two years now and forcing us to ‘get real’ in our closest associations or with our attitudes toward or about them.  Pallas also makes this a good time for creativity and aesthetics, design; or for crafting things that require skill and artistry or even with musical instruments.

Mercury will station direct on the 25th, just days after the Eclipse and is opposite Uranus.  This could make communications, conversations, negotiations and travel surprising and unpredictable in the days that surround.  As if they weren’t already.

Mars enters Capricorn on the 26th where our actions and energies can be directed toward tangible achievements and goals.

At any rate, there are powerful and potent energies that surround this Eclipse. Enjoy!
