LEO & VIRGO Initiate the Day Out of Time & Mayan New Year of the Yellow Electric Seed (July 25 / 26)

25 Jul

Dear cosmic, multi-dimensional, and terrestrial Friend!

What a time – and concentrated week! – of shifts!

The SUN Rules LEO – painting by Johfra Bosschart

  • What a Portal of Light between the CANCER New Moon (July 9) – so close to Blue Star SIRIUS, and the LEO New Moon on the day of the 08/08 Lion’s Gate, heralding the Rising of SIRIUS before the SUN!
    Time for the ‘Spiritual SUN’, Heart of our physical SUN, to be REborn.

    This special Portal has opened, inviting us to RE-connect with the Spiritual SUN, and to receive, conceive, ‘feed and cultivate’ (CAN New Moon symbol) its radiant blessings, and radiate them out (LEO).

    The AQ – LEO Full Moon on July 23 / 24, in the centre of the cycle from CANCER to LEO New Moon, offered blessings of Love & Freedom to Humanity. And it’s also the Guru Purnima – honouring the Teacher / Teachings / Practice that take us through the darkness to the light!

    The MOON passed ‘gate keeper’ SATURN on July 24 (their duo looked beautiful in the evening sky! The crystal clear Full Moon hang like a pendulum below SATURN), and will sail by JUPITER this evening, July 25 – on the last days of JUPITER in PISCES… inviting us all to connect in the cosmic, interdimensional blessings of Oneness.

  • Today July 25 is the Mayan Day Out of Time, leading over to the Mayan New Year of the Yellow Electric Seed on JULY 26.
    That’s what this post is about.


Shine ON & Radiate the Heart Light, Friends!

Creativity rocks & skyrockets.
Let’s lead from Love & Inspiration!
Let’s show our Light and our Colours, allowing ourselves and supporting others to be seen and loved.
Let’s be warm-hearted, joyful and playful – raises good vibrations, and de-lights the World.

So, why again would we hold back????

Day Out of Time / Dia Fuero del Tiempo & Mayan New Year of the Yellow Electric Seed (July 25 / 26)

Did you know? The Mayan New Year starts on July 26.
And the preceding day, July 25, is the Day Out of Time / Dia Fuera Del Tiempo.

Why?
This is what the 13-Moon Calendar / Foundation for the Law of Time says:

“TIME IS OF THE MIND.
TIME IS THE EVOLUTION OF CONSCIOUSNESS.
TIME IS THE UNIVERSAL FACTOR OF SYNCHRONIZATION.
TIME IS ART!”

The Day Out of Time is the Day to celebrate: TIME is ART. 

And since Art is the basis of constructive Peace, this day is also celebrated as the International Peace through Culture Day.

Peace through Culture is a fundamental premise of the 13 Moon / 28-Day calendar. When you celebrate Time is Art you are promoting Peace through Culture.

(13 x 28 = 364) plus one extra day – July 25, the DAY out of TIME.

The Day Out of Time is observed annually around the World as a Day to celebrate Galactic Freedom, promoting Time is Art, and Peace through Culture. 

Biospheric Triad: One Earth – One People – One Time

The Banner of Peace is a key symbol of Galactic Culture.

The three red spheres of the Banner of Peace represent the Unity of Art, Science and Spirituality.
Red is the color of the blood of the one human family. The red circle around the three spheres in the centre represents the unity of culture and the cyclic nature of time.
In 1935 in Washington D.C., 22 nations signed the Roerich Pact, created by Nicholas Roerich to declare Peace through Culture.
“Where there is Peace there is Culture, where there is Culture there is Peace.”

The Day out of Time is marked by ceremonies of universal forgiveness.
It’s a way of starting the New Year off on a clean, compassionate footing.
So supported by the PISCES MOON (from 8:38 pm PDT) this eve).

The 13-MOON NEW YEAR’s DAY occurs, as ‘usual’, on July 26.
Why is that?
This date was originally correlated to the conjunction of the SUN with SIRIUS Rising. The 13-Moon calendar is not just a SoLunar orbital measure, but is coded to galactic timing cycles, most notably the SIRIUS cycle.
Through the 13-Moon calendar, human consciousness can enter into galactic consciousness.

I couldn’t agree more:
TIME is CONSCIOUSNESS is what my work and mission is all about.
Astrology represents also: TIME is ART.

As always / yearly, my Mayan New Years article is very basic, and doesn’t claim any expertise in the field.
I find it fascinating though how even a few simple insights can be cross-referential, helpful and put things into perspective. 
Loving the Mayan Calendar ‘Beginner’s Mind’…

We’re coming out of the
Year of the BLUE LUNAR STORM (July 26, 2020 – July 25, 2021).
Has this been resonant and relevant for you, in the last year?
(Quoting again the Foundation of the Law of Time)

Kin 119 Blue Lunar Storm

…with the Invocation: 

“I Polarize in order to Catalyze
Stabilizing Energy
I seal the Matrix of Self-generation
With the Lunar Tone of Challenge
I am guided by the Power of Magic.” 

Well – hey! So much ‘stormy’ polarization – hopefully also to catalyze more and more of the shadow (PLUTO) coming out. SATURN, JUPITER, and PLUTO concentrated in CAP until Dec 2020 – big time fear / control shadow catalysts.
The Power of Magic = the power of transformation. PLUTO agrees.

And now for the…

Mayan New Year of the YELLOW ELECTRIC SEED (July 26, 2021 – July 24, 2022)

Kin 224 Yellow Electric Seed

…with the Invocation:

“I Activate in order to Target
Bonding Awareness
I seal the Input of Flowering
With the Electric Tone of Service
I am guided by the Power of Elegance”

 Amazing and so timely description for the Yellow Electric Seed

Yellow Seed is your Conscious Self – who you are and who you are becoming.

Yellow Seed is the ordered pattern of growth.
You and your life are the fertile soil, and the mystery blooms within you through the power of your intention or seed thoughts.
Just as a seed contains the hologram of its completion, the process of manifestation follows a natural order. In this gestation process, your intention is quickened by Spirit. The charged seed, your true desire or vision, becomes the focus for germination.

What can you open that will support receptivity and assist the germination of your seed intentions?
Envision the seed receiving the invitation to grow in the openness of your world. Viscerally feel the possibility of your heart’s dream emerging. Your true desires and dreams contain an innate intelligence that can break through even the rigidity of fixed expectations. Planting a new seed, even in the hard soil of old belief systems, can bring unexpected magic and growth.
Be willing to break open the constraining shells of past patterns, the shackles of belief structures. Call forth your creative involvement with life. This involvement frees and awakens the powerful energy of the life force, shifting your perceptions and experience, catalyzing the manifestation of your dreams.
Participate spontaneously in your growth, unrestricted by the illusion of old structures that once provided safety. Move forward into the light of new possibilities.

Offer your dream-seed to the universe. In the ordered patterning of the light, align with your heart’s greater purpose. In gratitude, surrender and release the seed to the benefit of your growth and its own pattern of perfection.

The number for Yellow Seed is four, the vibration of measure. This is the number of cycles and seasons. It represents the ordered patterning of the light wherein, as Jose Arguelles says, “form learns to generate its own seed.”
The number four represents the freed pattern of form, the germination of specific seeds co-created with Spirit.

If you are in the process of seeding something, meditate with the number four and the energy of Yellow Seed to assist you.

Noticing Yellow Electric Seed already?

Time for planting seeds of Awareness & Love, in Service to Humanity!

So apropos a gift of the AQ – LEO Full Moon (between SATURN & PLUTO), now VENUS, and next week also MARS in VIRGO, and JUPITER back in AQ.

TIME is SYNCHRONICITY.
TIME is CONSCIOUSNESS.

Cosmic Blessings for the Yellow Electric Seed Year!

AQUARIUS – LEO Full MOON / Guru Purnima (July 23 / 24) – Love & Liberté

22 Jul

Dear Cosmic Friends,

The July Full Moon is called the Buck Moon, as bucks’ antlers are at this time of the year emerging and growing.

The young buck – and his sister (not in this picture) whose appearance in the park in broad daylight, 10 days ago, surprised me. As I was tuning in and offering no-harm curiosity yet respect he let me come quite close while munching, and posing.

Offering Medicine of gentleness, sensitivity, and self-protection
more apropos CANCER which the SUN just left today, and where MERCURY is still until July 27.

Stairway to the Moon – photographer unknown

Have you seen LUNA these evenings, bright and big and golden, sailing very low on the Ecliptic across the night sky?

This week in deep, dark SCO (weekend into Mon), SAG (Tue / Wed), and CAP (Wed afternoon until… just 2 1/2 hrs before the Full Moon – all in PDT).

She has to go through the PLUTO Portal on Fri morning, before being FREE in AQ.

The ‘Old Empire’ expires now, and its shadows – oh-so blatantly revealed in the last years (esp. 2020, with JUPITER – SATURN – PLUTO in CAP) are now transforming into… what we contribute to the NEW, and shared future (AQ).

In AQ, SATURN retro awaits the MOON after fullness.
Time to find our inner authority, and pull together with others.

This Full Moon is a Power House of Changes

I’m sure you feel Her too.
It can be an emotionally intense phase for sure, with the PLUTO connection.

She’s birthing SO many SHIFTS and CHANGES, on Earth as in the Heavens! I don’t recall a Full Moon on the brink of as much transition.

Hopefully, my writings – from the Stars & from the Heart – help you putting things into perspective, esp. themes you resonate most with!

  • The AQ – LEO Thunder Full Moon on July 23 / 24 will be literally on the (second) last day of the Mayan Year of the Blue Lunar Storm(!!!) – and has it ever been a stormy year, in soo many ways!
    Leading over to the (yearly) Mayan Day out of Time on July 25, giving birth to the Mayan New Year of the Yellow Electric Seed (July 26, 2021 – July 24, 2022)!
    Blog article for this very special shift to come, shortly.

  • MARS, now end of LEO, will follow VENUS into VIRGO (July 29 – Sept 14) – Strength through Self Alignment & Service in Action
    Blog article to come, next week.

  • JUPITER, presently retro, will ‘sail back’ from PISCES (that it offered a preview to, since May 13) back to AQ (July 28 – Dec 28) – Offering the Gifts of Connection to the People
    Blog article to follow, next week.

  • Speaking of retro:
    The Super Retro Summer / early Fall 2021 has begun, as CHIRON joined the club, on July 15. Currently, FIVE heavenly bodies are retro from Earth perspective, making it SIX when URANUS in TAU turns around, on Aug 19.
    The record phase of SIX this year continues until early October.
    Blog article for this cosmic weather system to come, next week.
    Find glimpses about it already with the Full Moon theme, below.

Wake-up Moon

The lunar sphere can also bring surprises and wake-up calls – but really: Liberation – that take us right into THIS moment…

as the MOON after Fullness will connect with SATURN in AQ (a beautiful picture to behold, in the night sky!), and build up to a square with URANUS in TAU (exact on Sat July 24 evening).

URANUS, the ruling Planet of the MOON’s AQ expression, and Awakener Archetype, will be a stationary focus in August (as it’ll turn retro on Aug 19)!
More surprises, shake-ups, awakening, revolutionary paradigm shifts, renewal, innovation, and liberation to come.
Expect the unexpected, and get out of your comfort zone and its attachments.

Oh – the Thunder Moon…

Another one of the names of the July Full Moon is the Thunder Moon – due to the thunder storm (also URANian) season… Has Humanity EVER seen wild, unprecedented flooding storms, in Europe, and recently also in Asia!

The Sabian Symbol for the exact Full Moon degree reflects that same theme too – getting our attention in a dramatic (LEO) way – more about it right here-below…

The AQ Full MOON (post-PLUTO retro) shows where Old unsustainable Worlds & Ways (CAP) are now complete and done, and need to be outgrown – together (AQ).

What a stormy finale this Full Moon brings, precisely at the end of the Mayan Year of the Blue Lunar Storm (July 26, 2020 – July 24, 2021)!
Stay tuned for my blog article for the Day out of Time (July 25) and Mayan New Year of the Yellow Electric Seed, starting on July 26!

Sabian Symbol for the Thunder Full Moon Degree

As the Full Moon will show up at 1°26′ AQ – LEO (see in the chart below), let’s (as usual) round it up to 2° AQ:

AQUARIUS 2°: 
AN UNEXPECTED THUNDERSTORM

KEYNOTE: 
The need to develop the inner security which will enable us to meet unexpected crises

An interesting connection can be made between the symbols for Taurus 1° and 2° — “A clear mountain stream” and “An electrical storm” — and those for Aquarius 1° and 2°, two hundred and seventy degrees apart (a “waning” square, in terms of a cycle of relationship such as the lunation cycle). In the first case we deal with energies or activities that can be related to the natural development of the individual.

But here we are primarily concerned with social, collective processes and the function of the individual within them. The symbol itself — “An unexpected thunderstorm” — could be given a very positive meaning in an arid environment, but the emphasis on “unexpected” tends to accent the sudden and dangerous character of the event.
Such a thunderstorm in a region of dry hills can cause a devastating flood. At any rate, it refers to an event for which one is not prepared — a menace to men’s works.

Seen as a second stage symbol — thus in contrast to the preceding one — this scene stresses the fact that nature may reduce to impermanence the seemingly most permanent endeavors and constructive activities of men. Under a downpour of rain, adobe brick can return to mud. All human institutions and their achievements can be washed away, even in their day of great glory. “Dust you were, dust you must become.”
This is NATURE’S CHALLENGE.”

Whoa! Ever so dramatically pertinent, for the Thunder Moon, at the very end of the Mayan Blue Lunar Storm year!

Manifesting quite tragically in the most recent devastating flood catastrophes in Europe and Asia.
Nature demonstrated Her Power drastically – under the SUN in CANCER which rules flowing waters, opposing PLUTO retro in CAP (exact on July 17) – transformed into intense raging currents that killed hundreds of people, and left thousands homeless.
Requiring not just a pulling together of societies and their recovery resources & systems, but a transformation of humanity’s relationship with and impact on Mother Earth. Less exploitation and human hubris. More respect in action. She’s stronger, and it’ll backfire on Humanity.
No more time to waste, keeping the head in the sand in denial.

URANUS as the Ruler of the Full Moon in AQ, co-activated now, and even more so in August, in earthy TAU, gives us wake-up calls to get out of ‘business as usual’ a.s.a.p.

  • What’s the part we’re playing individually (LEO)?

  • What does it have to do with our privileges, and with our love (LEO)?

  • What do the voices of care, compassion, and what would Mother Earth herself say (MERCURY in CAN opp. PLUTO retro in CAP, exact on July 25, and fueling the Full Moon energy)?

The Full MOON at 2° AQ will be just 1° further into AQ from the epic and epochal JUPITER-SATURN Winter SoUlstice 2020 conjunction at 1° AQ, initiating a New Era for our Shared Humanity.

  • Has this vision and cosmic assignment already started to manifest, in your world?

  • What are you part of, where are you’re co-building the New?

  • How have your friendships and group involvement changed?
    Even though, some endings (SATURN in AQ) might have been hard, there’s also an abundance of new opportunities – esp. where there’s a naturally good synergy and resonance.
    …as shown by JUPITER who passed SATURN at Winter Solstice, and already moved through AQ into early PI (Synergy Point), yet is now backtracking, to reveal more AQ potential, July 28 – Dec 28.

Full-on Tensions, Dilemmas, and Choices

Are you feeling the dynamic AQ – LEO tensions and dilemmas between these themes?

Friends & Lovers / Loved Ones
Personal Love & Love for Humanity
Creativity & Co-Creation
Self & Society
Privileges & ‘Ordinary People’ / The Few & The Many
Love & Freedom?

…all brought out via tomorrow’s early AQ MOON (fuelled by PLUTO in late CAP which the MOON passes tomorrow morning) opposing the early LEO SUN (informed by MERCURY ‘back’ in CANCER) aka: the AQ – LEO Full MOON.

As with all Full Moons – choices are coming up, and:
The notion to bridge and ‘marry’ what seems polar opposite.


Let’s stay curious, communicado, and learn… says the supportive North Node in GEM, in Air trine with the Full MOON / SATURN.

Brightly Shining Together – photo from a morning walk this week

Crystal clear AQ Moon and bright hot LEO Summer Sun – what a pair…!


Bless us with Love, clarity, and co-creation in Community, that leads to, or rather, IS Freedom!

It’s been a whirlwind build-up for this Full MOON

Given also a mutable T-square between VENUS, freshly in VIRGO (since yesterday), LILITH, freshly in GEM (since July 18), and JUPITER retro, barely still in PI cusp ‘preview’, re-entering AQ on July 28.

Have you been able to channel and transmute the buzzing, nervous tension vibe into…

being self loving and self aware?

bringing love into service-in-action?

while being open to receive gifts from the universe, and attuning to what resonates?

and giving voice to what arises from there?

Like an Earth Angel…

URANUS brings Breakthroughs and Liberation, and the Full MOON in AQ can be a ‘Transmitter’

All about Liberation, with URANUS / AQ MOON.

Which is also the Guru Purnima / Guru Puja Moon, where we honour the spiritual teachers and the inner teacher / guru (see below) who takes us through the darkness to the light.

Translated to the Full Moon themes:

Freedom FROM the low vibe LEO – AQ energies:

  • LEO Drama & Dominance – often over-compensation of the need to be seen and loved.
  • AQ Isolation and Alienation – often a strategy to avoid hurt and rejection.

Freedom FOR…

  • Authentic Self Expression. Showing our Colours & Shining Our Heart Light (LEO)
  • Living Life Lovingly and Creatively (LEO)
  • Connecting with Like-Spirited and Like-Hearted Friends and Community (AQ)
  • Co-Creating in Freedom, and with Synergistic Innovation (AQ)

Reminds me of the spiritual teacher J. Krishnamurti – his birth chart features a late AQ Ascendant and TAU Sun.
Time to integrate & apply his ‘Freedom from the Known’ teaching – on so many levels.

A few years back, I was with a friend on a personal retreat in the beautiful K-Ctre outside of Victoria. We picked ‘randomly’ some videos to watch, and in one of them Krishnamurti talks about ‘Freedom that has no opposite’ – as long as there is an opposite (even freedom from… or freedom for) it’s not ultimate Freedom.
A liberating paradigm shift.
Same goes for Love – only Love without opposite is real Love.

Another widely loved and revered timeless teacher and visionary, C.G. Jung, was born on July 26, 1875, with early LEO SUN, not far from URANUS, AQ AC, and his SATURN in AQ where it is now. This Full Moon so close to his birthday would be right on his AC – DC axis.

This Spring, when clearing my book shelves, I came across Jung’s book The Undiscovered Self (English translation by R.F.C. Hull), which has been sitting there for more than 20 years, unread, undiscovered by me. I’m currently reading it, and from the beginning stunned at the timeliness / synchronicity and relevance of his message from 1957 / 58 for our societal situation in 2020 / 21!

I felt called last week to read the first chapter The Plight of the Individual in Modern Society (so LEO – AQ) in a video – check it out.
And read the book if you feel intrigued. So worth it.

Early AQ is in your chart shows the area of life where Lunar Liberation and Co-Creation are ‘full & ripe’ now

One Heart, One People – photographer unknown

And AQ – LEO reminds me also of one of my all time favourite quotes:

“We are All Stars in the Constellation of Love!”

In Hindu and Buddhist traditions, the Full Moon in July is the Guru Purnima / Guru Puja, dedicated to the inner and outer Guru

Ganesha 
Elephant headed Hindu god, known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ on the path, and Guru that takes us from the darkness (of not seeing what the obstacles is / was) to the Light.

Ganesha can be related in Astrology to SATURN (the Teacher) and JUPITER (the Mentor).

SATURN is presently in AQ (Dec 2019 – March 2023) where challenges for Humanity, Societies, and Systems arise.
Teaching us, at times painfully, how the obstacles (SATURN) to co-creation in freedom (AQ) have to do with having given authority away to systems that aren’t working anymore, and are ripe to be ‘harvested’.
SATURN presently retro, supports taking authority and responsibility back.

And PLUTO in SATURN’s sign CAP, presently also retro, helps with the transformation, by meeting our own shadows – as the Old Empire expires, and things are irreversibly evolving collectively.

Dense stuff, perhaps. Heavy curriculum?
May the Inner Teacher and light bringer show the way, and lead by example, just like the CAP goat slowly but surely climbing up the mountain, ever closer to light and space and freedom.

JUPITER, now in PISCES (preview May 13 – July 28, fully from Dec 28 on):
All is connected, all is ONE. Changing our vibration has ripple effects.
Time to bring the spiritual gifts to our circles and to humanity for the rest of the year, as JUPITER re-enters AQ, from July 28 on.

OM_concentric

“Ohhh, I don’t have a Guru, nor do I want one!” is what one might hear from us Westerners…

GU-RU means ‘simply’ “From Darkness to Light” – one who removes darkness and brings light. 

“Guru Purnima is celebrated on the day of the year when the SUN is closest to the Earth and the Full MOON reflects the brightest light. It is a holy day, and an especially beneficial time to make fresh resolves for spiritual growth.”

Truth is, the SUN is not closest to the Earth in Summer but in early January, however the early Summer SUN is so bright and strong, in the Northern hemisphere.

“Because the energies of the SUN and of the MOON in reflection are both at their peak, our subtle energy channels are unusually open and receptive to absorb spiritual energy. Practices done or begun these days will bring growth and auspiciousness in life.

Through sadhana (spiritual practice) and by following the Guru’s teachings, devotees can purify the mind to reflect the Atman / Universal Self, just as the MOON reflects the brightness of the SUN.

Traditionally, Guru Purnima is an auspicious time to begin four months of spiritual practice. Beginning at this time allows us to make great spiritual progress more quickly.”

Crystal & Ganesh activated Voyager Tarot card V – Hierophant / Spiritual Teacher – activation and photo by moi

Never too early, never too late, for spiritual practice, and connection with the inner Guru / Teacher / Mentor / Light Bringer, I’d say.

Time (ruled by CAP) in fact can be suspended, stretched, and can dissolve and ‘disappear’ in immersion with what IS (PLUTO retro points us to ‘that’).

The Guru is a bridge into vastness, spaciousness, and freedom.

FIVE Planetary Archetypes are presently retro.
JUPITER, SATURN, CHIRON, (soon also URANUS, going retro on Aug 19), NEPTUNE, and PLUTO!
Excellent for inward-turning movement….

Under PLUTO in SATURN ruled CAP (2008 – 2023), and NEPTUNE in PISCES (since 2011 / 2012, until 2026), so many traditional spiritual teachings and practices from our biological and Spirit ancestry have reached our modern cultures and become ‘mainstream’.
The ‘trick’ is to really be consistent and apply them into our daily and most challenging situations.

Different accesses and avenues for everyone, yet light is always light.

Aummmm! Namaste!
The Light in me honours the Light in you!
May we ground and embody it.

The FULL MOON Map – a Fuller Picture…

Voila – the ‘birth chart’ for the exact FULL MOON tomorrow Fri July 23 at 7:37 pm PDT (on July 24 in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania), viewed from Victoria BC:

So here She IS:

The Full MOON at 1°26′ AQ (less than 2 1/2 hrs after entering AQ), rising right after PLUTO (not visible with naked eye, but always there), currently retro in late CAP, and followed by SATURN, also retro, in AQ.

LUNA, on the CAP – AQ cusp of Community (AQ) Building (CAP), and where the Old, Traditional, or anachronistic (CAP), and the New and Modern World (AQ) interface, links PLUTO & SATURN.

One could literally say, the Full MOON links the Old with the New, History with Future.

  • What are core essentials (PLUTO) that we carry over, from the Old World / Era to the new one?

  • What’s with Natural, timeless Laws that always govern, even though “The Times, They Are A-Changin”?!

  • Which communities do you feel you belong to (MOON in AQ), where you co-create, and co-build for the future?

  • And esp. (as the Sabian Symbol points to):
    What’s the inner security (MOON / SATURN retro) that carries you forward, into an uncertain future, in these wild times?


Listening to the Voices of the Heart, of Kindness and Compassion – MERCURY in CANCER -, and connecting with the Goddess certainly helps.

MERCURY end of CANCER opp. PLUTO in CAP is also a good / important time to talk with family, esp. elders. Time for kindness and compassion with them is precious – even though you’re busy…

The SUN is now on the CAN – LEO cusp – the ‘Creativity Point’ / ‘Goddess Point’ where themes of family & children, welcoming and love show up.
Where do you feel warm and welcoming / welcomed from the Heart?
That’s where energy gets generated, and cultivated during LEO season – which has only just begun.

Kuan Yin statue with (water bearer?) vessel – as seen in the sculpture garden in Coombs BCphoto by moi from May

Kuan Yin, Goddess of Compassion for Humanity, comes to mind and heart, with the CANCER – LEO cusp, and She showed up this week more than once, in client sessions…

JUPITER, presently retro, on the cusp from PISCES back to AQ also reflects the Gifts and potentials of synergy with other humans (AQ) whom we resonate (PI) with.

PI – AQ is also literally about Compassion (PI) for Humanity (AQ) – the signature of Kuan Yin – and of other divine beings who similarly offer blessings to all. We’re invited to invoke them.


The MOON – SATURN pair will be a beautiful sight, these evenings / nights.
Also since the MOON is so low on the Ecliptic these days, so big and golden.

Astrologically, their combined AQ energy seems crystal clear:

  • A commitment to being of service to freedom for all
  • A closure of ‘old regime’ energies that curtail and suffocate freedom.
  • Prerequisite for both: Time to ‘re-parent’ ourselves as, and in, humanity.

Lots of Transitions in the Heavens as on Earth, reflected through the very cuspy energy in the SoLunar Cosmic Field

No less than FIVE Zodiac cusps are currently activated, all of them are transitional points from one state / expression to the next.

Clearly, despite the otherwise quite fixed energy (TAU, LEO, AQ), and for good balance, we’re called to not get attached, and embrace impermanence, openness, growth, learning, and flow.


I like to attribute names to the cusps, to describe characteristics of the blend / transitions, and here are (again, in summary) the themes.

  • CAP – AQ Community Builder / Light Leader Point
    where PLUTO retro, the Full MOON, and SATURN retro show up – and rise together, as the Full MOON trio.
    As described above, the bigger backdrop is: SATURN & JUPITER united here at Winter Solstice 2020, and started a new 20-year socio-political-economic cycle (while the previous one that began in the year 2000 in TAU ended).

    What’s our shared humanity calling us to do or evolve into?
    That goes for our involvement in ‘the system’ on a grander scale, and in individual interaction with people whom we love, and with ‘random strangers’.
    Important to process our own projected blind spots & shadow (PLUTO retro), do the work to unravel authority projections, and re-parent ourselves (SATURN).
    Time (when if not now?) to give ourselves permission to show up with our experience (not to say: we need to be perfect), and our best (CAP), to work from / with the Light, for the Highest Good.
    Which doesn’t equate hard work. Could be lighter than we thought…
    And in a world where so much darkness has come to the surface, the Light has to and will lead. Stronger together.
  • CANCER – LEO Creativity Point
    with MERCURY ‘back’ in CANCER – to oppose PLUTO retro on July 25, and the SUN, freshly-strongly in its LEOnine domain.
    That’s also the ‘Welcoming Point’, where it’s about tender care and love, family and children, feelings of belonging, and being seen and loved. And it’s a Goddess energy (CANCER Mother / LEO Queen).

    Here’s where love and warmth come into the otherwise intense, and challenging atmosphere, for good balance. When we feel loved, self loving, and loving, the challenges are much easier to handle.
    Yet, too much of this side could take us into a regressive, dependent, self-centred place, and prevent us from growing up and contributing.
  • AQ – PISCES Synergy / Resonance / Coherence Point
    where JUPITER is presently retro, and about to re-enter AQ on July 28 (until Dec 28 when the Big One finally enters PISCES).

    That’s where compassion for others as for ourselves comes in. Where we connect, accept, allow, tune into the energy & resonance, surrender, are open to receive the blessings, synchronicities, and other gifts from the infinitely creative and abundant Universe.
    As JUPITER re-enters AQ, we’re invited to share and contribute the gifts received on subtle, energetic, transcendent, multi-dimensional levels, with our friends, social circle, in the work we do, and with humanity.
  • TAU – GEM Voice Point, which LILITH just crossed, on July 18.

    Inspiring us to hear the Call of the Wild, find our wild, authentic (body / instinct based) Voice, and ‘take Flight’ from the norm & conditioning.
    LILITH will unite with the Lunar North Node on Sept 6, the very DAY of the VIRGO New Moon(!).
    All these (mental) dualities and polarizations in the human realm… how does Nature alchemize opposites into wholeness?
  • LEO – VIR Self Awareness Point, aka Sphinx Point
    with VENUS having just crossed it on July 21, and MARS following, on July 29.

    VENUS the VIRGO Priestess feels naturally called to Loving Service, while being in healthy Self Alignment.
    To love know ourselves helps to know ourselves. No need for being so self critical, or tuning into over-doing things to feel more lovable.
    An initiation (Sphinx) to be in our body-mind-spirit Temple of wellness and wholeness from which service to others comes natural.

    MARS will join VENUS next week, showing how self alignment and service in action gives strength. And yes, we can get a lot done, with MARS in VIRGO.
  • The latter three cuspy celestial bodies, JUPITER, LILITH, and VENUS went into mutable T-square today, July 22.
    In the cosmic whirlwind, how’s it been going, with being self loving and self aware, and bringing love into service, while being open to receive gifts from the universe, attuning to what resonates, and giving voice to what arises from there?

    I guess that’s where my writing came from today…

Another Super Retro Summer / early Fall is now ON

As in the last few years, we see the maximum of retro Planets in the Summer.

Already, FIVE heavenly bodies are presently from Earth perspective retro (JUPITER, SATURN, CHIRON, NEPTUNE, PLUTO).

URANUS the ruling Planet of the AQ Full Moon will join the club, on Aug 19.

The retro max with SIX will be mid-Aug to early Oct.

  • A great time to go deeper into what’s been ‘stored away’ and ‘left behind’ on all levels

  • A wonderful time for us introverts

  • Good (always is) for gaining inner & spiritual perspective on the ‘outside world’

  • A time to fully regenerate (rather than do what we’ve always done and see the same effects…).

SO much Fixed Energy these days

The SUN / MOON, and Planets are already mostly in the fixed signs TAU – LEO – AQ.
And even more so with the LEO New Moon on 08/08, and the AQ – LEO Sphinx Point Full Moon / astrological Blue Moon on Aug 22.

Things can get stuck and locked, physically, mentally, and ego-will wise. Watch for compulsive / controlling behaviour, and instead channel the energy into Love and Passion.

The crystal clear AQ Moon helps us find our Love (again?).

EmBodying Freedom

Our friend (and AQ Ruler) URANUS the Awakener, nowa-years (2019 – 2026) in TAURUS, will be a cosmic focus in turnaround ‘station’ throughout August (goes retro on Aug 19). 

URANUS represents the force that shakes & wakes us up, showing us that things can shift quickly, and what we ’loved’ / were attached to, and tried to hold on to (TAU) yesterday is already passé today.

What remains – best way to be anyway – is to Live in the NOW – and to Live from and in LOVE, says LEO.
EmBodied Freedom.

AQUARIUS rules Crystals…

With SoLunar Blessings for LOVE & LIBERTÉ!

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Which can lead to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel more connected with yourself and with all-that-IS, in the bigger on-going evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

I welcome you as a client who is not seeking an ‘old school reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transition, stuckness, transformational crisis, for new perspectives at a crossroad or dilemma, and for important choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

MERCURY in LEO (July 27 – Aug 11): Speak from the Heart. Roar as Needed. Show Yourself & Your Colours.

22 Jul

Loving Greetings from the Cosmic Messenger!

MERCURY follows the SUN (in LEO as of today July 22), as it comes out of the CANCERian Waters, to cross the ‘Creativity Point’ into LEO, on July 27.

For only 15 days, until Aug 11, yet with concentrated, almost daily planetary transits (and news?). No boredom in the next weeks!

Hopefully we’ve reflected and processed how we feel about all these CANCERian (home, domestic, family….) themes – and maybe it would have been premature to put it all into words… but it’s now. Say it with Love!

Beach graffiti with new addition – photo by moi, from last week

The cosmic / inner Messenger & Communicator, from July 27 – Aug 11 in LEOwants us to show our true loving colours, as we speak, write, paint, dance, share.

To be naturally confident (hopefully inner confidence grew through Cancerian nurturing self care), expressive (after all those impressions during MERCURY in CANCER) in a joyfully-creative & playful way, and foremost: come from the loving Heart.

Lioness Goddess – artist unknown

With MERCURY in LEO, we know what we want (well, the mind / ego thinks it does), and let the World know.

The ‘only’ (yet potentially glaringly obvious) thing with MERCURY in LEO is that the Messenger Archetype is considered ‘in fall’ in LEO – while ‘exalted’ in the polar opposite vibration of AQ.


I.o.w., the mind ‘on LEO’ can get quite self absorbed –
The world revolves around ME as a mental state, vs. in AQ, it can be more detached, a witness / scientist, interested in ‘the system’, group consciousness / humanity / the WE rather than the Self, and from that place be co-innovative, even revolutionary.

Better to channel the energy into warm-hearted creativity!
Always, and even more so now is the time to be creative, show & shine…

Rose Vibrancy – even better together… – photo by moi, from last week


Everything LEO (Love, Passion, Creativity, yet also the Inner Drama or True Queen / King) is brought to mind, and wants to be communicated about (and sometimes from).
Best avenue / higher vibe of LEO: Be the Artist and Heart-ist!

Esp if YOU have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in LEO!

The Mini Generation of all you boomers with PLUTO in LEO (born 1939 – 1957) are called to alchemize the shadow of domination and otherwise purrsonalized power themes into true soul expression.

Where’s Your LEO House that MERCURY’s about to visit, and have a Message for / from?

MERCURY knocks at the door of the House LEO is in, for all of us – it’s got a message for us, and wants us to speak from Love in / from that realm.
Access & express the solid LEO warmth-of-heart, and creative power, radiating from this area of life
:

LEO in your…

1st House
How you show u
p –
Celebrate and BE Yourself!

2nd House
What you have and value –

Own Your Radiance!

3rd House
Your environment –

Celebrate in the City / Neighbourhood / with Relatives!

4th House
Your home –

Be the King or Queen – and generous Host/ess!

5th House
Your creativity –

You’re the HEART-ist!

6th House
Your work and health –

A warm Heart is the best health insurance, and good for your work & service too. 

7th House
Your significant others –

They’re special, as is your relationship! Celebrate Life & Love together!

8th House
Your deep involvement and transformations –

Perhaps from ego investment into the pure Heart?

9th House
Your travels and worldviews –

Travel with joy, and put your creations out there into the World!

10th House
Your calling and purpose –

is LOVE!

11th House
Your community –

A Celebration! Where everyone’s a Star.

12th House
Your oneness with ALL –

The ‘True Gold’…

YES, communicating from being loving and proud of ourselves is totally in accord with MERCURY in LEO. 
Give yourself the Love you might miss from others, and tell yourself a new Love Story.

  • How about connecting with the Heart before / instead of roaring, or making it all about ourselves….?
  • How about ‘randomly’ making Heart connections with people around us, not ‘just’ your sweetheart?

But hey, why do we / they crave attention? 
Maybe ‘simply’ to be seen and loved.

What do you LOVE about yourself?
What do you LOVE about LIFE?
How can you Live Life Lovingly?

And what would LOVE say?
Maybe….

What are MERCURY’s LEOnine Encounters with other Cosmic Players?

During MERCURY’s relatively brief (only 15 days!) visit in LEO, from just after the AQ – LEO Full Moon / Mayan New Year (on July 23 / 24 / 26) to shortly after the LEO New Moon (on 08/08, the ‘Lion’s Gate’), almost daily contacts with other Planetary Players occur.

MERCURY can be their Messenger.
Ideally not as in: drama news, but straight from the Heart.

JULY 27
MERCURY enters LEO
, and goes into quincunx with JUPITER retro in PI (on the cusp to AQ)
Speak from the Heart. Roar as Needed. Show Yourself & Your Colours.
Be the Heart-ist, let creativity flow, and share it out.

AUG 1 – Lammas
MERCURY in LEO meets the SUN, and opposes SATURN retro in AQ.
Which is also the ‘Inferior Conjunction’ between the SUN and MERCURY = midpoint between MERCURY retro phases.
From that point forward, MERCURY will take the lead again, and the SUN follows – until the next M-r.
Speak from the Heart – even though / esp. if there’s (inner!) judgment and fear about what other people might think / how you might position yourself as an outsider. Don’t let the ego mind run the show. Dare to be different, dare to be YOU.

AUG 2
MERCURY in LEO in Fire Trine with CHIRON retro in ARIES
Find the Inner Medicine – which of course can be vulnerable and raw. But a chance to show others who you really are, behind the veneer. Give it creative expression, and find the Heart language.

AUG 3
MERCURY in LEO squares stat. URANUS in TAU (going retro on Aug 19)
Both Planets are in their ‘Fall’ / ‘least favourable’ energy (MERCURY in LEO, and URANUS in TAU).
Yet, URANUS is MERCURY’s the ‘higher octave’ (as in: liberation and breakthroughs, out-of-the-box ‘thinking’, flashes of insight).
The MOON in MERCURY ruled GEM can save the day.
Roar – perhaps up-roar? This combo can evoke unexpected / disruptive news / communicative clashes, yet is also primed for mental breakthroughs, and cathartic verbal expressions round freedom from attachments. 
Don’t break off the dialogue, stay curious, and ask yourself deep questions around the ego-mind and its ‘toys’.

AUG 7
MERCURY in LEO goes into quincunx with NEPTUNE retro in PISCES.
A strange dynamic, purrhaps between standing out and getting attention, and being passive, anonymous, and ‘drowning’ in mass consciousness?
Reconciling & upleveling these energies, by being open, receptive, and in faith & flow, while inviting Life to ignite our passion & love. Which can dissolve and transmute purrrsonal attachments to being seen & loved into bathing in Love-that-IS, and releasing all else – with Love.

AUG 8 – Lion’s Gate, and Sirius Rising
The Central LEO New Moon meets / comes with MERCURY.
What a start into a gloriously creative, loving cycle!
Just remember, it’s not about the show (and Selfie) but about the Heart.

AUG 9
MERCURY end of LEO in quincunx with PLUTO retro end of CAP
What helps transform the dysfunctional, ‘narcissistic’ ‘Old Empire’?
Self Love and loving Self Awareness of the Individual (says also C.G. Jung, as I just read in “The Undiscovered Self”).
Yep, it’s a journey, it’s a process.

AUG 10
MERCURY end of LEO (Sphinx Point) opp. JUPITER retro end of AQ (Synergy Point)
Know thyself, and hang out with people whom you truly resonate with – lots of gifts and potential for collaboration!

AUG 11
MERCURY enters VIRGO (follows VENUS – since July 21 in VIRGO – and MARS – since July 29)- one of its ruled signs.
Practice IS Perfect.

Don’t make it complicated.

Mid- to end of AUG will be quite VIRGOan, with MERCURY (until Aug 11), the SUN (until Aug 22) and MARS (throughout).

These energies of thesee 3 Planets in VIRGO like things hands-on, get the job done. Back to work!

Journey through Space – beach art photo from last week

Striking effect of MERCURY in LEO: The AQ frame.
The transits start with MERCURY in LEO opposing SATURN retro in early AQ, and end with MERCURY in LEO opposing JUPITER retro at the end of AQ.

‘Spacey’ AQ on the ‘other side’ holds space for humanity and group consciousness, that the sovereign individual (LEO) might see themselves sooo different from.

What’s the best bridge between these two ‘worlds’, the individual and the humanity?

Rather than going into mental-verbal dramatic ego mode, and taking things so purrrsonally (which might be a temptation)…

  • Can you find the Loving Place in your Heart from which to speak and act, towards yourself and with others?
  • What are your desires, when it comes to friendship and community?
  • What would you like to tell Humanity, from the Heart?

“Share your smile with a stranger, and be excellent with each other”, is what our LEOnine Yoga teacher likes to say at the end of the class.

Looking forward to the re-start of the classes – soon!

In the meantime / always, let’s smile (authentically) more often, and practice Heart Language, Cosmic Strangers & Friends!

Sunny LEO Times to y’all!
Shine your Love, straight from the Heart!

VENUS in VIRGO (July 21 – Aug 15) – Loving Service & Self Alignment

21 Jul

Cosmic Greetings, dear Astro~News Reader!

Virgo and Mercury – painting by Johfra Bosschart

VENUS will cross over the ‘Sphinx Point’ of Self (LEO) Awareness (VIRGO) today July 21, the day before the feast day of Mary Magdalene.
To dwell in the sign of the Sacred Feminine until Aug 15 – the day of Mother Mary’s Ascension.

And VENUS in VIRGO will offer even more perfect alignment opportunities…

VENUS is presently ahead of

  • MARS (since July 13, when they united in LEO),
  • the SUN (since March 25, when they united in ARIES, close to CHIRON), and
  • MERCURY (since May 28, the day before the onset of the epic MERCURY retro in GEM).

Let’s let Love lead, and Live Life Lovingly!
Bring Love (incl. healthy Self Love!) into Service!

What’s wrong with / for VENUS in VIRGO?

Being rather self serving / self critical – both modes being on the spectrum of an ‘unhappy’, unfulfilled / compensated VENUS in VIRGO.
VENUS in Her VIRGO vestige can be a picky and fault-finding perfectionist towards self and others, or in love with / attracted to too much ‘doing mode’, and attract soo many problems, jobs, and tasks.

Yes, She LOVES having a job well done, yet hopefully there’s still enough energy with / for the people whom the job serves – as for herself…

VENUS is traditionally ‘in Fall’ in VIRGO.
Doing / ‘good girl / boy’ oriented VENUS in VIRGO can bring up inadequacy issues… and needs to hear & offer herself the messages:
“I love what you / I do.” and “You’re lovable – not because you’re doing things well, but because who you ARE!”

In contrast, VENUS is ‘exalted’ in PISCES: Being in an unconditionally loving vibration changes… everything, and makes it all easier – ideally.

Hopefully, you VENUS in VIRGO Friends don’t find extra self fault now through being aware of this ‘predicament’. And take it rather as an inspiration for self awareness, and raising the vibration – with Love.

On a Higher Vibration

Self Awareness, loving and knowing ourselves, and being in alignment with the Cosmic Self (as the VIRGO Earth Angel painting illustrates so beautifully) is the prerequisite for helping others finding their light – true service.

Under VENUS in VIRGO, our loving qualities can be well channeled into the work we’re here to do. 
And she loves to show her love through practical deeds.

Good to remember for self critical VIRGO:

  • Don’t wait to do the work until you’re ‘perfect’
  • Don’t sabotage the work by considering it as ‘not good enough’.
  • As hard as it is – abstain from unsolicited help and advice. Angels wait to be asked (unless it’s an emergency…).


With loving Self Awareness
, know thyself, and your tendencies, and meet yourself with Love first.

Know you’re always beyond ‘good enough’ – rather: unconditionally love-able.

What helps when these conditioned & conditional voices come up:
To come back to healthy and whole self-alignment, perhaps through a wellness / spiritual practice, like meditation, Yoga, Qi Gong, walking in Nature, good nutrition…

Anything that can turn into a healthy routine, bringing us back into ourselves. Self sufficient VIRGO loves that.
Not that you ‘should do it’ to increase your self-love and love-ability though….

VENUS in VIRGO can also bring out the d.i.y. / self sufficiency side a tad too much (VIRGO’s associated with the Hermit card in Tarot).
So the effect of not being so open to receive… Help is available – more than you think!
Another reflection of VENUS being ‘in Fall’ in VIRGO.
While ‘she’s exalted in PISCES – being in loving flow attracts, and she can ask for help, lovingly!

Good to remember to also equally open up and let the Love IN – as JUPITER and NEPTUNE in PISCES ‘on the other side’ would offer.

And to be open to see & just love how things already ARE in perfect cosmic alignment.

VENUS will go into opposition with NEPTUNE retro on Aug 9 (perfectly aligned on the day after the epic 08/08 New Moon!) – an invitation for the balance / bridging of healthy discernment / busyness / doing mode, and openness & being in easy flow mode.

Crystal (mainly clear quartz) activated Voyager Tarot card II – Priestess – crystal activation and photo by Melanie

VENUS and the MOON are also associated with Priestess energy.
They will be in balancing opposition in VIRGO – PISCES on July 26. Wonderful for ceremony.

13 is a number sacred to the Goddess – related to the 13 lunar cycles in one solar year.
During VENUS in VIRGO (on the second-last day), we’ll see the only(!) Friday the 13th of the year.
Friday the 13th is related to the 13 MOONs & VENUS Day – Friday!

Another initiation into dedication to, and living from the Sacred Feminine.

Another perfect alignment-as-is.

Line-up of ‘dates & dances’ for VENUS in VIRGO with other Planets

VIRGO loves alignments, and ritual / ceremony to honour those, and activate their energies.

During VENUS in VIRGO, there will be a concentration of alignments and festivals that lend themselves to do ceremony – 6 of them, in under 4 weeks!

Mary Magdalene Day, Full Moon, Day Out of Time / Mayan New Year of the Yellow Electric Seed, Lammas, Lion’s Gate 08/08 New Moon & Sirius Rising, and Mother Mary’s Ascension Day.

In order (yep, gotta be orderly, says VIRGO) of appearance, here are the alignments of VENUS in VIRGO with other Planets, and the MOON:

JULY 21
VENUS enters VIRGO.
Loving Service & Loving Self Alignment are Beautiful.

JULY 22Mary Magdalene Day, and day before the AQ – LEO Full Moon
VENUS newly in VIRGO goes into relationship with other heavenly bodies right away – in mutable T-square with LILITH freshly in GEM, and JUPITER retro still in PI (until July 28).
Being self loving and self aware, and bringing love into service, while being open to receive gifts from the universe, attuning to what resonates, and giving voice to what arises from there.

JULY 26 – Day of the Mayan New Year of the Yellow Electric Seed
The MOON in PISCES in opposition with VENUS in VIRGO
Priestess energy – be in alignment with your cosmic assignment, and in your Body-Mind-Spirit Temple of wholeness, wellness, and service.

JULY 29
MARS follows & joins VENUS in VIRGO (He’s got work to do, until Sept 14).
Strength through Self Alignment & Service in Action

JULY 30
VENUS in VIRGO in quincunx with SATURN retro in AQ
The on-going and timely loving practice of self-alignment, wellness, and service, as humanity and friends go through challenging times.
Also: Find intrinsic authority, know and state your boundaries, lovingly.

JULY 31
The MOON in TAU in Earth trine with VENUS in VIR
Beautiful integration of enjoyment and sensuality with enjoying the work & wellness

AUG 1Lammas
VENUS in VIR in quincunx with CHIRON retro in AR
New Medicine arising, from within.
Knowing and loving yourself as you authentically are has to do with it…

AUG 2
VENUS in VIR in trine with URANUS retro in TAU (ruled by VENUS)
This beautiful Earth Trine brings stability to what could have shown up before as unsettling, with VENUS & MARS squaring URANUS (earlier in July).
Good to be in loving Self Alignment, and doing the good work & practice, while / as we’re setting ourselves free from sticky attachments and habits, and energy that’s been locked-up in them.

Quite practically, a good time to do renovation / refreshing and clearing work (plus we’re in the waning Moon phase, in GEM – clear your papers, books, online info).

AUG 9 – Day after the 08/08 Lion’s Gate New Moon in LEO
VENUS in VIR opposite NEPTUNE retro in PISCES
Balance of healthy discernment / alignment, busyness, and openness & easy flow.

Let the Love in!

AUG 11
MERCURY joins VENUS and MARS in VIRGO, where the Messenger-Apprentice will be until Aug 30.
Practice IS Perfect.
VENUS in VIR in Earth trine with PLUTO retro in CAP
Naturally-intrinsically empowered and grounded in the core of your Being – Love.

AUG 14
VENUS end of VIR in quincunx with JUPITER retro in AQ
Doing the work / serving with / from Love, and loving the self sufficiency it brings, yet being open to gifts and opportunities through community and collaboration.

AUG 15 – Feast Day of Mother Mary’s Ascension
VENUS, on the ‘Perfect BalancePoint, enters LIBRA (until Sept 10)
– one of Her ruled signs –
Peace & harmony, beauty & aesthetics, justice & fairness are attractive.
It also shows us about our relational ‘bias’
(comparing ourselves with / designing ourselves for others / making our life and our choices overly about others).
What’s true Balance, Harmony, and Beauty?

Your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets / Nodes in VIRGO

are an attractive magnet, like flowers to a bee, under VENUS in VIRGO.
Their qualities can attract service and practice, in the name of overall / holistic wellness – which VIRGO loves.

What that means more specifically, and which inner archetypal Helpers can lovingly volunteer has to do with which celestial bodies are in VIRGO. I bet you have analyzed your chart before if you have VIRGO featured and are open to Astrology as you read this. And yes, I’m here to help too. 🙂

Perfect VIRGO – PISCES Beach Art – photo by moi, from a walk this week

VENUS in VIRGO attracts and helps us all, with being in Loving Self Awareness, Alignment, and of Service

Which we can access most easily via the area of life related to VIRGO in our chart.
Bring your lovingness to these areas – and they bring it out in you!

LILITH in GEMINI (July 18, 2021 – Apr 15, 2022) – ‘Wild’ Voices

19 Jul

Greetings, dear Wild & Free Beings!

You probably like the sound of the ASTRO News I have for you:

She took flight on July 18!
LILITH entered the first AIR sign in the Zodiac.

LILITH, asteroid representative of the ‘Wild Woman’ Archetype, and, deeper than that: of our True, ‘Wild’ Nature that’s always unconditionally FREE and unbound, has shifted signs (every 9 months)…

as ‘she’ took off, from earthbound TAU, to grow wings in GEMINI where yin-yang and otherwise Alchemy of polarities happens.

What restores lightness, in this heavily institutionalized / established, yet transforming (PLUTO retro in CAP) and socially controlled / challenging (SATURN in AQ, also retro nowadays) world?

See what message found me on my walk on the beach,
right on the LILITH take-off day:

LILITH in TAU Review / Inquiry

Even though, LILITHherself’ never goes back / retro, I’d find it worthwhile doing an acknowledging, honouring, integrating review for the last 9-month phase, of LILITH in TAU.

The ‘hottest’ / fiercest phase was when LILITH connected with URANUS (every 10 years), on Dec 23, 2020 – effects extending throughout Jan 2021, when MARS, then also in TAU, joined URANUS on Jan 20, and LILITH on Jan 29.

A really wild and fierce January it was, esp. politically, in and out of the U.S.
Setting the tone for the first half of the year / LILITH’s remainder in TAU, where URANUS will be until 2026.

Lots of unsettling and ‘wild’ experiences in human bodies, as in the Earth. How did your ‘wild and free’ Earth Body respond?

Review inquiry questions (GEMINI likes those) for LILITH in TAURUS (Oct 21, 2020 – July 18, 2021) – Wild & Thriving as Nature, and in Our True Nature
…helping us find our True & Free, ‘Wild’ & Unconditioned Nature – IN Nature, and in the Nature of our Body.

  • How has the instinctual wisdom of your Wild & Free Body been guiding you?
    How has it formed / affirmed your values?

  • How has Mother Earth, all her Beings and your Body drawn you closer to instinct? We are the Earth.

  • Where are you ‘in your element’?
    Like: literally, which place on Planet Earth?
    Maybe afar or around the corner, laying on the Earth, working in the garden, and eating / feeding others with home grown food. Wild foraging and discovering food sources that truly nourish us is also apropos LILITH in TAU.

  • When it comes to locational freedom, URANUS in TAU has set the tone since 2018 / 19 for what LILITH co-activated:
    What do your senses says to the land you would thrive on (maybe awakened in the last 2-3 years) – just like a plant growing under optimal conditions?
    And if you can’t be there yet, how do you bring its flavours, sounds, and sights into your life NOW?
    Follow your instinct, experiment, be unconditionally free!

  • The Green Revolution, initiated by URANUS in TAURUS (since 2018 / 19) has gotten another kick from LILITH.
    Which reminds me of the food freedom hero Rob Greenfield who ventured out to set an example for happily living super simply & self-sustainably off the land – by transforming front yard lawns into thriving gardens. 
    Inspired?

LILITH in GEMINI – Wild & Free Voices & Related Themes

As LILITH moved over the ‘Voice Point’, on July 18…
hear the Call of the Wild, find our wild, authentic (body / instinct based) Voice, and ‘take Flight’ from the norm & conditioning.

Voices of & for Nature
What are the messages of the body, and of the sounds of Nature?
Learning (GEM) from the wild places, from undominated / undecimated Nature (TAU).
Listening to the Voice of Nature, and of the nature of our Earth Body.
Being a voice FOR Nature.

Wild Learning’
…as in: un-schooling can be a big theme, after lots of challenges for children in the school system. New free and ‘organic’ learning and schools arise.

‘Wild’ News and Discussions

‘Wild’ News and Discussions
The established news / media that used to ‘inform & educate’ us adults have demonstrated their shadow in the last year/s.
Whom can we trust / believe? It is about beliefs, actually?

The South Node has been in SAG, the North Node in GEM since June 2020: Heeding agenda and propaganda, questioning the narrative, informing oneself, hearing and openly discussing with many diverse voices.

Looks like ever new ‘wild’ & free alternative news / media / discussion platforms are taking off (already many have been established). And sure enough, news can spread like wildfire, yet might have their own rogue agenda (VIRGO discernment comes handy here, already at the onset of LILITH in GEM squaring MARS in early VIR, on Aug 1).

Rogue Signals & Intel
…via / from biotechnology, 5G, you name it – more info & intel (GEM) to show up about these phenomena.
What do your devices know about you?

Talking to ‘Random People’
…can help us learn about them, human nature, ourselves. Be ‘wildly curious’, and stay communicado.
MERCURY (ruler of GEM) retro phases (end of Sept / Oct, and Jan / early Feb) can be another catalyst for all that jazz.

Connecting the Dots, or Wildly Scrambled Pieces?
Confusing – esp. media wise – is it ‘all coming together’ or ‘falling apart’?
Yet also an invitation to quiet the voices and noises…
…when LILITH in GEM squares NEPTUNE in PI, exact Jan 26, 2022 (and yes, that’ll be also during MERCURY retro, on the AQ – CAP cusp!).

Science (as we know it) Defying Phenomena
…can likely arise, with LILITH in GEM.
The dichotomy (GEM) of theories / statistics / scientific laws, and the notion to really hearing the voice of the individual humans and their unique, ‘exceptional’ experience ideally prompts new scientific learning, rather than applying the one-fits-all funnel.

Interest in ‘Wild Things’, like:
Unconditioned Feminine, Gender Alchemy / Fluidity, and such
What can we learn with genuine curiosity, and when we put judgment (SAG) aside?

Inquiring in our ‘Wild’, Unconditioned, True Nature
‘Rewild’ yourself, esp. your mind.
What do you really know? And who’s the true YOU?

While in GEMINI, LILITH will make these Contacts with other Planetary Archetypes

The energy will be activated at least a week before, and some days after the exact alignment.
Integration of its effects can take longer, of course
, esp. if LILITH and the other cosmic players come in contact with your cosmic markers and their themes.

Highlight phases of LILITH’s flight in GEM:

  • The LILITH effects start just before / with the LEO season (July 22) / AQ – LEO Full Moon on July 23, as LILITH steps into a mutable T-square with JUPITER retro on the cusp to PI (July 22), and first VENUS (July 22), then MARS on the Sphinx Point in early VIR (Aug 1).
    Being self loving and self aware, and bringing love into service-in-action, while being open to receive gifts from the universe, and attuning to what resonates, and giving voice to what arises from there.
    Like an Earth Angel…

  • LILITH in GEM crosses paths with the North Node on Sept 6, the very DAY of the VIRGO New Moon.
    With all the (mental) dualities and polarizations in the human realm… what would Nature ‘do’, to alchemize the opposites into wholeness?

  • The Total Solar Release Eclipse in SAG on Dec 4 will be opposite LILITH.
    Let go of Old Stories, judgment, (buying into) agenda, and activate your unconditioned curiosity.

  • On Jan 10, MARS in SAG will oppose LILITH.
    Yep, maybe more controversial agendas clashing, yet our organic curiosity and conversationality saves the day.

  • And on Jan 26 (as Her last major transit), LILITH in GEM will square NEPTUNE in PI.
    Rogue, wild news and info – overwhelming and confusing? It’s all coming together, and / or falling apart…?
    PISCES is so slippery and paradoxical. Don’t take things at face value, question, research, and self-inquire into the One-as-All.

You can find the upcoming specific LILITH in GEM transits, in the email ASTRO~News that goes out to subscribers before every New Moon and Full Moon. You’re welcome to subscribe here on my Astro FB page, and can of course always unsubscribe on the very bottom of each issue.

LILITH is 9 months in a Zodiac sign & has a 9-year cycle

‘She’ returns to the energy in our birth chart every 9 years.
I.o.w., at ages 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, and 90, we have our LILITH Return.

Are you turning one of these ages?

Then your LILITH might be in GEMINI, and you have your LILITH Return!
An important re-initiation to get unattached, learn & communicate from nature-all curiosity to learn Alchemy in your Inner Wildness.

LILITH in GEM (meeting the North Node) in the GEMINI House of your Birth Chart (and Local Chart)…

Gemini – Painting by Johfra Bosschart

…brings over the next 9 months our your ‘Wild, Unconditioned Voice’ out

…shows you how and where to alchemize polarities

...and helps you connect with your ‘Wild Twins’.


Most accessible via these areas of your Life:

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

Be the Alchemist of YinYang and other polarities, in / as YOU.

2nd House
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

Dual and complementary stuff rocks – your gift, and more interesting that way.

3rd House
Your Environment, the Mentality around you

So many languages and ways of thinking?
Relating to them all, be the translator.

4th House
Your Home, Family Origin, Ancestry

More than one? Your role as alchemist of duality / diversity matters.

5th House
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

Light-hearted, yet not just heady-flighty-superficial…
It’s a beautiful puzzle, and there’s always more to learn.

6th House
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle
Diversity, learning, information, bridging of cultures and worlds?
What’s a healthy approach – for YOU? Wildly claim & voice it. Maybe you like the buzz, and could use more of it, or not soo many moving parts…

7th House
Your Partners & Significant Others

Relationships are THE curriculum for life-long learning. Could get even ‘wilder’, and imply un-learning.

8th House
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others, Your Transformations

Not so deep after all?
New voices? New ways to learn more about what lays under the surface?

9th House
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels

Out and about, doesn’t have to be far.
Be the Butterfly and Pollinator of ideas and joy.

10th House
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

Got two or more sides to your public persona, or more than ‘one’ purpose?
No problemo. Who said you need to be just SO?

11th House
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends

What a diversity of people, cultures, languages, interests.
More buzz to come, stay open and keep learning.

12th House
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.

Your deep unanswerable questions and reconciling of paradoxes…
Keep inquiring into your unconditioned, true nature.

This is to our Wild & Free Nature!

CANCER New Moon (July 9) with Sirius – New Light, New Rhythm, New Home

8 Jul

Warm SUMMER Greetings,

Dear Reader on the beautiful Pacific West Coast, or physically further away on Planet Earth, yet well connected, in our 
Cosmically Attuned Astro Community!

Islandview Beach shoreline with hidden dog – photo by Melanie
Dog walks have been ON, these days – while the New Moon is close to
Sirius the ‘Dog Star’ – which will rise again soon (with the next New Moon!)….

Can you FEEL the Call of the Water?
The WATER Element of sensitivity, caring, belonging, and all things emotional, is more present now astrologically, since the Summer Solstice, via the SUN in CANCER, while NEPTUNE and JUPITER keep cruising (both retro) in PISCES.


Sighhhh – the CANCER New Moon on July 9 initiates a quieter, more introspective, and integrative phase.
Together with MERCURY entering CANCER on July 11.
And with a plethora of retro Planets this Summer / early Fall (already retro: JUPITER, SATURN, PLUTO, freshly retro: NEPTUNE, and about to go retro on July 15: CHIRON).


Lots of us are SO ready for some chill, after…

  • …quite a stormy breeze, compliments MERCURY having been for an extended time in GEM (May 3 – July 11)…
    …with its crazy retro phase (May 29 – June 22), and triple square to NEPTUNE – from mental chaos and overwhelm to surrender, adaptation, and calmer seas…

  • … the (2nd of 3 this year) square from SATURN in AQ to URANUS in TAU, on June 14.
    Systemic rules and restrictions, fears in society in conflict with a push for embodying autonomy and freedom. Also a call to break through / free from old conditioned ‘matrixes‘ – reverberating through the Eclipse season.

  • … last week’s super charged dynamic (cardinal T-square) between MARS in LEO, SATURN, and URANUS (peaking July 1 -3) – roaring Warrior Spirit!

  • … the square between the CANCER SUN and CHIRON in AR on July 4 – sensitive, raw, and vulnerable energies.
    How can you be both authentic and safe? Maybe it’s good to re-visit old and early wounds, to shed light on them, with conscious self care and compassion? CHIRON is about to retro, on July 15.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere in the height of the SOLAR Year – the Solstice / early Summer SUN has been bright and dominant, and the daylight hours are the longest.
Yet, BALANCE happens too, as the days start to get incrementally shorter, and we’re entering a rather LUNAR phase, with the CANCER New Moon – La Luna’s very abode.

After the GEMINI and extensive MERCURY in GEM season, we’re now dropping more and more (via the SUN, the New MOON, and MERCURY) from AIRY GEM into the Cancerian WATER element.
From thinking, communicating, and reasoning to feeling, tuning in, and resonating (when we do).

I call the GEM – CAN cusp of the Zodiac also the ‘Gathering Point’ (besides ‘Nesting Point’ and ‘Rapport Point’ – ha, GEMINI – many names…):
We might have gathered a lot of information, made new contacts, learned a lot, and brought it all into your space. Early Summer is a natural time to gather as family, friends, tribes, and communities.
Gathering creates a sense of Belonging – very Cancerian.

Akrotiri Dolphins – antique Greek mosaic

So let’s be gentle, and tune into the Fluidity of Life.
Our emotions and needs keep changing (CAN), while the energetic Fabric of Life (PI) shows us that we all are, and all IS connected.

Actually, there is just Oneness of Life (PI) in its many forms.

Welcoming the First New Moon in Summer 2021!

Moon Goddess – artist unknown

The FIRST New Moon in Summer 2021 happens on Friday, July 9, at 6:17 pm PDT at 18°01′ CANCER (La Luna’s zodiacal ‘home domain’).
And: She’s very close to SIRIUS (14°05′ CAN).

Two more Summer New Moons to follow:
Aug 8: Central LEO NM at the 08/08 Lion’s Gate – with SIRIUS Rising!
Sept 6: Central VIRGO NM

The phase from the CANCER / SIRIUS New Moon to the Lion’s Gate / SIRIUS Rising LEO New Moon is a very special Window of Light.

Let’s tune into our Light Body.
How does it meet the present here-now ‘density’?
How does it help to to uplift ourselves, and transcend it?

The Moon Rules Cancer – painting by Johfra Bosschart

Can you feel the pull of the Ocean Mama, back to Home Sweet Home?

Whatever Home means to you: 
Literally to your physical Home, to your Family, to your Spirit Home, to the Land you call Home, or to the Home of your Innermost BEING….?

What are you ‘conceiving’ of these days?
Where do you feel you belong?

The CANCER New Moon is the natural time for new beginnings, when it comes to all themes round home, nurturance, and belonging.

The essence of timeless Tao Wisdom: Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamic and interwoven

I’ve always felt something’s off when the New Moon is being described as a time to ‘set new intentions’.
Which is just one side of the energy: the yang / masculine one (and is telling about the culture we’re in).

What about the yin / feminine one, of being open and receptive, to be a vessel for conception?!

YES, a New MOON is Conception Energy!
MOON & SUN come together, like / as Yin & Yang.


In a Yin/Yang New Moon Union, we
re aligned with the rhythms of nature.
Esp. in CANCER which IS about rhythms.

Island Rhythm – Healing Mandalas calendar

A New Rhythm is conceived with this New Moon.


The yin / lunar
Cancerian quality is very motherly, caring, gentle, nurturing for our needs.


The yang / solar
Cancerian quality is very fatherly, and consciously creates safe tribal and family ‘hubs’.

Where mid CANCER falls in your chart (houses, planets there) is where a seed is being planted, ‘conception’ of a new light and new rhythm take place (‘in the dark’, for the time being), for caring and belonging.

Mid-CANCER (in the calendar July 2 – 12) has a SCO undertone.
Yes, in the dark / background / underground is where a new sense of Home is now conceived.
Apropos SCO, see also the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon degree – below.

Examples

Mid CAN in your 2nd House
New ‘conception’ of what you value about belonging, and literally for your physical home

Mid CAN in your 5th House
New beginnings for conceiving a child, for nurturing your Inner Child, your children, and your creativity

Mid CAN in your 11th House
New start for your home and belonging in a community….

Sabian Symbol for the New Moon

The New MOON will be at 18°01′ CAN

Hen & Chicks in Cuba – photo by Melanie

CANCER 18°: 
A HEN SCRATCHING THE GROUND TO FIND NOURISHMENT FOR HER PROGENY

KEYNOTE: The practical concern with everyday nourishment necessary to sustain one’s outreaching activities.

Every mother is originally responsible for the feeding of her progeny, and all the activities into which a person has poured his energy are his symbolic children.

She has to feed them with social substance gathered from “the ground” of his community, and to watch with concern over their unfoldment. The tender stem consolidates into the tree trunk, the chicken into the hen, the infant into the theoretically self-reliant and socially wise adult.

This third stage of the twenty-second five-fold sequence shows the results of the two previous stages.
Seed, germ and the growing plant requiring the chemicals of the soil for its daily growth form a clear sequence.
What is at stake here is the FULFILLING OF LIFE’S RESPONSIBILITIES.”

The daily / consistent tending to what’s / who’s in our care – ourselves, other humans, animals, plants, work, home, friendships – is the responsible side of CAN.

This quality of intimacy reaches deeply, shows how much we really care when the shadow comes out, and how in the process we are transformed – just as the cared-for beings.

Themes in this Scorpionic part of CANCER.

How does this care-taking symbol resonate in you?
How is it relevant for the stage you’re in, and the state of the world?

You can find clues in the astrological House where mid-CAN is in – pointing to the area of life affected by the themes of the New Moon.

Time to introduce the

CANCER New Moon Birth Chart

Happening on Friday, July 9, at 6:17 pm PDT

So cool – not only a MOON – SUN union (July 9) but also a VENUS – MARS union (exact on July 13)!
So clear – Yin & Yang are primed to come together, in caring belonging, and in passion and creativity!

Can you see the vicinity of the New Moon with SIRIUS?

SIRIUS is such a majestic blue / multicoloured star…!

Some of us had the privilege to view SIRIUS via my friend Stephen’s telescope a few winters ago, when it was visible in the night sky. Quite the download and connection for me.

Did you know that from Earth perspective early July every year the SUN in mid CANCER lines up with SIRIUS, the beautiful bright ‘Dog Star’?

The SUN meets SIRIUS ‘located’ at 14°05′ CAN round July 5 – 7.

This year close to the CANCER New Moon on July 9.

Interesting that Canada, the U.S., and France all celebrate their ‘birthdays’ nowadays… July 1, 4, and 14. 
Liberation and Independence are important themes with SIRIUS.

Let’s tune into Sirian energy and new beginnings – out of the dark.

SIRIUS the brightest star in the night sky re-appears before the SUN at dawn – at 08/08, the ‘Lion’s Gate’ which will be the day of the next New Moon, in LEO!

Time for the ‘Spiritual SUN’, or Heart of our physical SUN to be REborn.

What a Portal of Light between this New Moon and the next!

This special Portal opens, inviting us to RE-connect with the Spiritual SUN, and to receive, conceive, ‘feed and cultivate’ (CAN New Moon symbol) its radiant blessings.

The CANCER New Moon goes into a Water trine with NEPTUNE retro in PI – exact for the MOON on July 10, and for the SUN on July 15.

Inviting us to tune into connective vibrations that make life smoother, kinder, more relaxed and at ease, and of course, to go with the flow.

Very welcome, after so much tension and stress lately.

Pluto – as seen by New Horizons Mission 2015

And the CANCER New Moon also builds up to an opposition with PLUTO retro in CAP – exact for the MOON on July 10, and for the SUN on July 17.

The balance between the pull to where we belong and feel at home and can just BE (CANCER), and important priorities that need to be in place now, to stay in our power and integrity, and be the responsible grown-up (CAP).

Also, a good time to connect with Elders and Ancestors (on all levels).

The SoLunar contacts with NEPTUNE and PLUTO are influencing the cosmic weather from July 10 – 17.

MERCURY is now on the ‘Nesting’ / ‘Gathering’ / ‘Rapport Point’ from GEM to CANCER which it’ll enter on July 11 – shifting the mental landscape to more emotional attunement and connection.

With the CANCER New Moon, CHIRON in ARIES (in wide, now integrating square to the New Moon) is prompted to turn retro on July 15, until Dec 19 – Healing through Inner Warrior Medicine and Authenticity.

More about this shift in the linked blog article.

And yes, the Retro Summer & early Fall 2021 is starting.

In the meantime, there’s also lots going on in LEO, where VENUS will meet MARS, and the MOON will meet both, on July 12 / 13Summer Celebration of Joy & Love & Passion!

What a shift from the fierce MARS in LEO Warrior Roars early July!
MARS opposed SATURN retro in AQ and squared URANUS in TAU, forming a sharp T-Square with both, July 1 – 3.

Loving Lion Family – photographer unknown

VENUS in LEO stepped into that T-square on July 6 – 8, to also oppose SATURN retro in AQ, and square URANUS in TAU:

Give yourself purrrmission to Live the Love!

The creative & loving Divine Feminine and Inner Goddess radiates & attracts without needing to prove anything, or comply with any social standards!

No room for old sticky attachments and other funk.

Set yourself free, and love yourself. Set your Heart on Fire!

The MOON – VENUS – MARS union on July 12 / 13 will be the grand finale and celebration of life & passion – life is yours to live lovingly!

Ancient Sumerian Lilith Relief

Also coming up, and being CAT-alyzed by the CANCER New Moon with lotsa LEO going on:

LILITH will change signs from TAURUS where She’s been since Oct 21, 2020 to GEMINI on July 18Hear the Call of the Wild, and Find your ‘Wild’ Authentic Voice!

LILITH will be in GEM until Apr 15, 2022 (always 9 months in a sign, and never, ever going retro!).

More about the LILITH move and messages, in separate blog article – stay tuned!

Many Heartfelt Summer Blessings!

Enjoy this Body-Mind-Spirit Nourishing Season!

CHIRON in ARIES goes retro (July 15 – Dec 19) – Healing through Inner Warrior Medicine and Authenticity

7 Jul


Sensing it too?
It’s a CHIRON-ic month of July, dear Astro~News Reader!

Right in the middle of the month, on July 15, Shamanic Healer / Teacher and Archetype of all things medical (2020-21!) CHIRON, now in ARIES, goes into its yearly 5-months retro ‘retreat’ – to help us source the Medicine from within.


CHIRON crossed over the Spring Equinox a.k.a. ‘Emergence’ Point on Feb 18, 2019, to ‘Come Alive’ in ARIES.
Here’s a link to the blog post for CHIRON’s entry into ARIES.


Lots of experiences of ‘life is new’ yet also survivor mode, since then.

Howzit going thus far, with CHIRON in ARIES?

CHIRON in ARIES connects us with the Medicine of

  • Being authentic, present and in the moment – always fresh,

  • Activating the Warrior Spirit (ARIES is ruled by MARS) – yet not an aggressive, wounding / wounded / destructive warrior, but in assertion of the life force,

  • Showing up for life, and for ourselves (it starts with YOU, you’re naturally # 1 in your life), and:

  • Starting a-fresh!

How have you been dealing with these themes in the last 2 years, since CHIRON’s been in ARIES?

Howzit going in the World, with CHIRON in ARIES?

One of several epic astrological markers in 2020 was the Spring Equinox New Moon in early ARIES on March 24, 2020, with CHIRON & LILITH – Wild New World & Life, affecting Healing and Medicine.



2020, the first full year with CHIRON in ARIES, yet also with a massive CAP concentration, was so turbulent and unprecedented, esp. when it comes to the (established) medical field, which has shown:
It’s a ‘war medicine’ with a competitive spirit.
 
Humanity got alerted and agitated (ARIES), via relentless and addictive (get your dopamine hit!) media (PI) bombardment (AR). Hardly healing. Stress and fear compromise the immune system.

In 2020/21, the world-wide immunization program has been rushed, in ‘warp speed’. Also very apropos CHIRON in ARIES.

Lots of evidence for alertness, survival modes, new medical precedents and procedures, and many battlegrounds, physically, mentally, emotionally.
Division leads to war:
“You’re here by yourself, and need to fend for yourself.”

How can the warrior spirit (and what kind of warrior spirit?) be healing, and when is it re-wounding?

CHIRON in ARIES (2019 – 2027) teaches us about Warrior Medicine.

In the meantime this is happening in the Canadian Spring / early Summer 2021:

Besides the Canadian involvement in the worldwide medical emergency mode, there are currently other (new-not-new) historic battles fought in the country, its psyche, and its First (ARIES) People.

  • Brave Young (as well as Elder) Warriors show up & stand up for the last Ancient Forests that are being sacrificed on the altar of greedy neo-colonial exploitational capitalism. The Time to act & protect is NOW.

  • A fuller picture of systemic kidnapping & abuse of Indigenous Children in residential colonial re-education schools / (camps!), institutionalized by the colonial government in alliance with the churches, has come publicly to light:
    Via the recent (started end of May) discovery of hundreds (1505 by July 1, and counting) of children’s bodily remains, under the grounds of former ‘residential schools’.

    What a euphemism the term ‘residential schools’ even is, for state-religious re-education camps where harsh conditions and abuse were institutionalized, via oh-so ‘christian educators’.

    Clearly, the trauma of ‘residential school’ survivors was re-ignited, hopefully to be healed (CHIRON), while the outrageous acts have to be called out (ARIES).
    Indigenous Healing is very much apropos CHIRON in ARIES (2019 – 2027).

CHIRON is coming close to the AC & NEPTUNE at 15 / 16° AR of Canada’s Federation chart of 1867 – first time in 50 years – exact in 2022 / 23.
You bet there’ll be more old / original wounds emerging of the country’s coming into being – time for healing!

Let’s glean guidance from the symbol associated to the Zodiac degree where CHIRON changes direction, and stations this month of July. CHIRON’s turns retro at 12°56′ ARIES – not quite reaching 13° (not until 2022) – that’s why I’d go back to the symbol for 12°.

Sabian Symbol for CHIRON’s Turnaround Degree

Canada Geese Flight Formation – photographer unknown

ARIES 12°: “A TRIANGULARLY SHAPED FLIGHT OF WILD GEESE

KEYNOTE: An idealistic reliance upon a mental image of universal order.       

The wild goose is the mystical bird, hamsa, of Hindu tradition. This word, which has recurred in various cultures (the Hansa League of Germanic cities in the late Middle Ages, and El Hanza, the founder of the occult Brotherhood of the Druzes in Lebanon, during the era of the Crusades), has always had at least an undertone of integration at an expansionistic level, spiritual or economic. The Hindu hamsa was the symbol of man’s transcendent soul.

What previous interpretations of this Sabian symbol have failed to grasp is that the flight of geese presents not only a remarkably geometrical V-shape moving through the sky, but also that this flight is seasonal and therefore attuned to planetary rhythms.

Thus, it symbolizes cosmic order, in contrast with the social-political order within a nation which is represented by its ruler. It is order made visual on the background of the clear sky. It is a “celestial” type of order, even though it is earth-born birds which reveal it by their ability to keep their flight structured. The symbol therefore refers to the Soul-consciousness as visualized by the heaven-oriented mind. Yet this soul-consciousness can be called transcendent because it has not yet become “incarnated.”

Because this is a second stage in the third five-fold sequence begun with Phase 11, we have to consider what it pictures in contrast to the preceding symbol. A basic dualism of consciousness is thus suggested. We see arising a potential conflict between cosmic and social principles of order.
The principle of COSMIC ORDER polarizes the all-too-human reliance on the social concept of law and order.”

Love it!
What a moving(!) pointer(!) to turn to Natural Law, leadership and group consciousness in Nature, and Cosmic Order – as the Medicine to heal dysfunctional, power-greedy, abusive human law and order.

I don’t believe that’s ‘idealistic’ as the title of the symbol seems to suggest.

Nature itself relies on it, and tirelessly teaches us the Medicine of it. We Humans better return to relying on, honouring, and respectfully working with Nature, natural rhythms and laws too.

CHIRON the Wounded Healer & Teacher Archetype brings up Old Wounds

To heal it we have to feel it.

Medicine is not a one-fits-all fix / band-aid but emerges from the woundedness.
Therapy is a process. Can’t rush (ARIES) Nature.
Things need to integrate and ‘compost’ to heal from the inside-out – that’s what CHIRON retro will show us more about. The teachings that emerge in the process are gifts for healing / understanding.

Some personal questions to contemplate and walk with:

  • How do early wounds (esp. about survival / starting fresh and new) in your life show up to be healed?

  • What’s the healing Medicine that emerges from within?

  • What is / would be a new approach for you to being & staying vibrant, healthy, and strong (ARIES) in this interconnected and multi-influenz-ial (PISCES) world?

Full Circle CHIRON in ARIES

The last time CHIRON was in ARIES (like presently, also for a long time, almost 9 years): Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977.

A lot of fierce fights / first things happened in those years historically:
Mass protests in Prague 1968, leading to relative liberation, Woodstock in Aug 1969, Moon landing in July 1969, start of the environmental movement in the 1970’s…

Those of you born in those years carry the Medicine of the Warrior.
Of renewal & fresh beginnings, yet healing of early wounds is a big theme for you as well – leading you to emerge with New Medicine that comes from within, is authentic and unique.

If you were born round 1971 this is your CHIRON Return year – full circle of initiation into your original Medicine.

Personal CHIRON in ARIES Themes

Here are some themes you probably recognize, esp. if you have your SUN / MOON / AC, or Planets – or even CHIRON in ARIES.

  • All is fresh, raw, and NEW in ARIES.

  • What does being in a New World bring up in you?

  • What’s your call to action?

  • Do something for the first time – set a precedent for yourself – try it on!

  • Even if you don’t have partners or allies, going ahead by yourself anyway can be healing.

  • Don’t wait for others to meet you. Be the kick starter and initiator – others may follow.

  • Find the Medicine of being Authentically YOU!

  • Wake up and emerge from the Collective Consciousness.

  • When it’s time to leave the scene and start afresh – simply DO it.

Which can be all scary, and / or hugely liberating & renewing.

CHIRON the Centaur turned Warrior – artist unknown

CHIRON brings up ‘wounds’ and awkwardness, and we feel like an outsider.

In ARIES when it seems like we’re the only / first one doing something, when we show up or stand up for ourselves, by ourselves, and for what matters to us.

It might be also awkward if we didn’t have role models, or their teachings don’t apply to THIS. 

Yet, what the heck? says ARIES, It’s my life, this is ME.
ARIES is a Warrior / Survivor.
All about the NOW.


Alive, alert, letting life force emerge in every moment. 

Time for fresh beginnings – or for simply being present with what’s always NEW.

Show up in a new way, try out what you haven’t before, not in a long time, or don’t have a ‘model’ or comparison for.

If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES doesn’t mind starting anew). The essence of being innovative.

Anger (an ARIES expression) can be your vulnerability (incl. passive-aggressive modes if anger isn’t / wasn’t ok) yet also guide you to your Medicine.

Your CHIRON in ARIES / CHIRON in our ARIES House

If you were born with CHIRON in ARIES (Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977) you know a bit (or a lot) about the CHIRONic side described above…
For you, round age 50 CHIRON will make its Return, and your ‘original wound / Medicine’ comes full circle.


All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in early ARIES (or triggered by it, in LIBRA, CAN or CAP) we’ll get a CHIRON ‘kick’ too, to step forward, authentically as we are.

Esp. in the area of life related to our ARIES House in the chart:

ARIES in your…

1st House
How You show up –
BE Yourself.

2nd House
What you have and Value –
Innovation, Originality, Courage to go ahead.

3rd House
Your Environment –
Dynamic, never boring, assertive?

4th House
Your Home –
Ever new, and ‘on the go’.

5th House
Your Creativity –
You’re a Pioneer? – Try yourself out in a new way.

6th House
Your Work and Health –
Assert Yourself in a healthy way. Do your own thing.

7th House
Your Significant Others –
Do you attract dynamic, assertive, aggressive People? What does that say about you? Where is now the Medicine in relationships?

8th House
Your deep Involvement and Transformations –
Be the Hero in this.

9th House
Your Travels and Worldviews –
You go, Grrrl / Man!

10th House
Your Calling and Purpose –
Autonomy and Newness

11th House
Your Community –
Warriors and Individualists

12th House
Your Oneness with ALL –
Always in the NOW.

CHIRON Retro ‘Syndromes’

With CHIRON going retro (each year for 5 months, these years July – Dec) we’re called to go backward to trace early wounds (ARIES relates to the beginning of Life – even literally Baby stage) that we might have internalized. 
And to find the Medicine that meets those wounds.

Examples:

  • Feeling left alone – being all by yourself

  • Needing to assert yourself to be noticed

  • Being in an aggressive-stressful environment – possibly experienced like a ‘war zone’

  • Being with a family / parent who’s all new to parenting and ‘makes it up as s/he goes’ – which can of course be stressful for the baby.

This is the month (with stationary CHIRON) to meet and kindly-compassionately (CANCER season, MERCURY entering CANCER on July 11) dialogue with the ‘early YOU’.

Check in how his / her Start in Life has caused wounds that still inform his / her present stage, what is needed to heal those wounds, and how ‘walking with the wounds’ have brought Medicine for yourself and for others.

Shaman – painting by Susan Boulet

CHIRON in ARIES, esp. in its retro movement, has to do with Healing early stages in Humanity that created the seed of what needs to heal now.

With the Medicine of earlier phases in History, as in:
Ancient / early / indigenous Shamans.

And with the Medicine that’s intrinsic, direct, and emerges from our connection with and AS Nature.


Many Blessings for the Medicine in / as YOU!

MERCURY in CANCER (July 11 – 27) – Memories & Reflections, Inner Landscape of the Mind…

6 Jul

Dear Reader, in the Astro~News Tribe,

Noticing a shift in the mental landscape?

  • Been thinking of or missing home, the past, people in your bio / original and / or affinity family?
    And feeling like talking (more? again?) to them?

  • Been in a need for communication from a caring, nurturing, heartful, compassionate, gentle place?
    With, or on behalf of the family, tribe, children, the human family, and the family of all sentient Beings?

MERCURY finally comes out of GEM where it’s been what seems like forever: Since May 3, incl its retro phase from May 29 – June 22.
Whoaaa – this time, the ‘Messenger on hold’ and in triple-square with NEPTUNE (last alignment this morning, July 6!) has wreaked a lot of havoc. Yet also brought lots of learning opportunities, and ‘background / underground info’ to our awareness.

Hope you didn’t get all wrapped-up in the mental maze, and didn’t let the mind be wayyy too much in charge.

M-r is all about coming from the head to the heart, and from mind to consciousness, after all.
And, esp. with GEMINI, we might literally go like: “What was I thinking?!”

How do we feel about it all? asks MERCURY in CANCER.

On July 11, winged messenger MERCURY moves into CANCER where it’ll dwell until July 27.

Another head-to-heart transition… back to a dialogue of kindness.
MERCURY in CAN (post GEM) brings us from the thinking mind to the sensitive feeling mind.

Pheasant Nest with Chicks

I like to call GEM – CAN the ‘Nesting Point’ when winged creatures build, or return to their nests, and tend to the young.
The GEMINI buzz turns into homecoming and belonging.

And it’s also (well suited for MERCURY) a ‘Rapport Point.
To built good rapport, we need to have a mental (GEM) and emotional (CAN) connection, ‘get one another’, and share from a loving, nurturing, compassionate place.

Let’s make a point of being in good rapport with the world and the ‘others’ – always, and esp. these days.
Which means to put ourselves in their shoes – how might they feel? – while also tending to our needs.

MERCURY on the Shoreline of CANCER
Memories & Reflections, Inner Landscape of the Mind…

Crab Perspective… and Family Time…

MERCURY’s move into CANCER invites us into playful, creative imagination, after the extensive intellectual and information driven MERCURY in GEM over the last more than 2 months.

MERCURY in CAN brings back memories (well, for better or worse…) and reflections, is rather inward-backward oriented, and wanders on the shoreline between the ‘Sands of Time’ and the ‘Waters of Life’.

This mercurial energy can be well channeled into communicating from a caring, nurturing, compassionate, gentle place, with and on behalf of the family, tribe, children, the human family, and the family of all sentient Beings.

Talk to your Tribe! And talk to ‘others’ as if they were in your Tribe – because we ultimately are. Everybody belongs.

Also, a much better vibe for mercurial / mercantile interactions and business relating to / from / for the home, esp. post-MERCURY retro.

The shadow / downside of MERCURY in CANCER is an emotional ‘overlay’ of information processing, and lack of objectivity. Information is filtered through sensitivity, feelings, needs, memories.
The mental-emotional landscape is by nature – now accentuated by MERCURY – fluctuating / rhythmic / non-linear.
CANCER is ruled by the MOON and ebb & tides, which may sound  like: “Today it seems like this, but who knows what it’ll remind me of, and how I read it / feel and think about it tomorrow”.

CANCER’s got the best memory bank of them all.
Which is where the mind (MERCURY) can be pulled into now, for better (“Bring on the stories and throwbacks!”) or worse (these ghosts from the past have a life of their own, and in hindsight it can be nostalgic or…haunting).
And hey, crying is totally ok, may be triggered in various ways, and can be a good release, in our overly and crazily mental world.

MERCURY in CANCER opens a sweet window to look into the inner landscape, and ask:

  • How does this and that information, what I read or hear (and how I hear it) make me feel? 
  • Where do these feelings originate in me?

Water signs are sensitive & instinctive – we can learn a lot from that gift now – and could use more of that in our world.

A good time to (re)cultivate compassion, gentleness, kindness.
We never know what’s going on in others (like, when they say “I’m fine…”, or don’t talk behind their masks).

Dreams can be enhanced now too (and even more so building up to the Full Moon on July 23). 
Bringing their symbols and messages from our subconscious and from the collective ‘field’ to our consciousness can be very powerful.

Which reminds me of Carl G. Jung’s famous work Memories, Dreams, and Reflections.
The Swiss psychologist C.G.J. * July 26, 1875, was born under a LEO SUN / URANUS (ruler of his AQ Rising – a brilliant man indeed!), and with VENUS / MERCURY in CAN. 

“I can understand myself only in the light of inner happenings.” – very apropos his MERCURY in CAN.

MERCURY in CANCER initiates Retro Season

Up to 6 Planets will be simultaneously Retro this Summer to Fall!

During MERCURY’s crab walk through CANCER, one step forward, two steps back, several other Planets are already, or about to go retro – as they have been in the last years. during the Summer.

In the already present and upcoming turnaround & retro courses of these Planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron – from July 15 on, Uranus – from Aug 19 on, Neptune, and Pluto), we’re called to go backwards / inwards.

To REsolve and RElease old low vibrational and unconscious, perhaps karmically ‘inherited’ or societally conditioned patterns, process those, and evolve from within.

The ‘Wave of Retro’ is strongest from mid-July with 5 Planets retro, to mid-Oct, with still 6 Planets retro. It peaks end of Aug throughout Sept, with consistently 6 Planets retro!

Here are the Planetary Archetypes and their Themes
(…and let’s leave the next MERCURY retro end of Sept to mid-Oct out – comes soon enough to be featured in separate blog post):

JUPITER in PI – back to AQ, ‘dancing’ on the AQ – PI ‘Coherence Point’ (retro June 20 – Oct 17)
Inner spaciousness, openness to beneficial vibrations and connection to what-IS helps to outgrow and transcend pseudo salvation of humanity.

SATURN in AQ (retro May 23 – Oct 10)
Rather than buying into internalized socially conditioned fears, finding authority, responsibility, integrity, and freedom within, and living from that ‘inner mandate’.

CHIRON in ARIES (retro July 15 – Dec 19)
The ‘wound’ carries the Inner Medicine

Old and early stressful survival mode wounds and trauma show up in this time of uncertainty. We heal when we show up authentically and bravely step into the New.

NEPTUNE in PISCES (retro June 25 – Dec 1)
Connectedness & Oneness

Old overwhelm, confusion, delusions, addictions, feeling victimized, and ways of ‘checking out’ and giving up. Re-lief and release through dropping into Unity Consciousness, in the Unified Field.

PLUTO in CAP (retro Apr 27 – Oct 6)
Empowered by and for Evolution

Experiencing old (outer and inner) powers that oppress and abuse, and old control patterns. Accessing inner Soul Power that cannot be destroyed, a deep inner inalienable resource that’s always available to help us transform & evolve.

As mentioned, the ‘Retro Culmination’ is end of Aug throughout Sept. 
A perfect time to go inward, and re-trieve from within what might have been ‘given away’. 

MERCURY in CAN prepares us for this ‘hermetic’ move.

Ocean Mood – photo by moi, end of May

Now, let’s see…

…which other Planetary Archetypes the Mercurial Messenger meets, during its Journey through homeward bound CANCER

JULY 11
MERCURY enters CANCER
Building Rapport. Offering nurturing messages from / for the ‘Inner Landscape’. Talk with your Tribe. Create a Tribe atmosphere, and notice who IS in your Tribe.
Memories & Reflections, Inner Landscape of the Mind…

JULY 12
MERCURY in CAN in Water trine with JUPITER retro in PI
Tune in, connect. The language of love always finds the right words – and doesn’t need words.

JULY 18
MERCURY in CAN in quincunx with SATURN retro in AQ
How do We the People feel about what’s going on in the system / in society?!
And personally: How do ‘rules’ or control in a group makes us feel? Time to voice it. Yet not before finding your intrinsic authority.

JULY 19
MERCURY in CAN squares stationary / retro CHIRON (went retro on July 15) in ARIES
What’s the voice of your early wounds?
How do you show up for yourself?
What does loving care say to (outer / inner) Survivors and Warriors?
What’s the message of the First People and of other Warriors to the Human Family?

JULY 20
MERCURY in CAN in sextile with URANUS in TAU
What are breakthrough insights you have?
What’s new and exciting, yet sweet and gentle?
How do you think, inform yourself, and speak, based on (nowadays un-)common sense?

Tune into instinct and bodily senses – what’s liberating about this?

JULY 24 – day after the AQ – LEO Full Moon
MERCURY in CAN goes into Water trine with NEPTUNE retro in PI
When feeling tender and sensitive best to go into meditation and perhaps literally to the ocean with it all.
We’re all One, and need to be safe and sustained.

JULY 25Mayan Day Out of Time / Dia Fuero del Tiempo
MERCURY in CAN opposes PLUTO retro in CAP
Facing ‘old world’ powers with cold, rigid, heavy, righteous, separative agendas? Time to speak on behalf of our human family, and from Soul Power and Natural Law, in the face of where the world seems to go (‘evolve’).
What would the Inner Authority / Inner Elder, and the bigger picture / a wider outlook on the situation say – with a compassionate heart?

Also, a good time to reconnect and communicate with Family and Ancestors, alive or in other realms, Spirit Ancestors, as well as the Inner Spirit Elder. 

JULY 27
MERCURY enters LEO – until  Aug 11
Speaking from a heart- and soulful place, and guided by the LEO motto of Living Life Lovingly!

Where is CANCER in your Birth Chart?

That’s where MERCURY bring Loving Kindness, Care, and Compassion into conscious conversation.

And where important messages round your psychology, past, family, and belonging want to be heart – and spoken.

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

You’re cute & caring. Also take good care of yourself.

2nd House
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business
Hospitality? Caring, nursing? Psychology and counselling?

3rd House
You in Your Local Environment

Family, kids & tribe/s all around you lots to learn from / with them.

4th House
You and Your Home, Origin, Ancestry
Homey-cozy, or too clingy in the nest?

5th House
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

Well, emphasis is on Child…

6th House
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle
Born for home office. And health is about nurturing, on all levels.

7th House
Your Partners & Significant Others

Home is where the Heart is.

8th House
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others, Your Transformations

Marrying a family? Deaths and other deep changes in the family transform you.

9th House
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels

With your Home on the back, and always homeward-bound.

10th House
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

Not just to be at home in your career, but to find Home in Life.

11th House
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends

Gotta be your Tribe – maybe more at home with them than with your ‘actual’ family.

12th House
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.

Coming Home into the Soul. At Home in the Universe, and Life itself.

Turtle Family on the Log – photo by moi

I heard / read recently the term:
Soft Front – Strong Back… Turtle Message & Medicine.

And very CANCERian with CAP support – a gentle, caring, compassionate approach to the world while upholding our Integrity that protects & guards us and is there for others.

Blessings for a gentle & mindful, caring & compassionate phase of MERCURY in CANCER!

CAP – CANCER Full Moon (June 24): Natural Organic Authority & Soul-Full-Filling Purpose

23 Jun

Dear Astro~News Reader, in the Cosmic-Human Family!

The first FULL MOON of SUMMER 2021 is here to bless us – tomorrow June 24.

In CAPRICORN – as the SUN is now in CANCER.
Well, that’s sometimes ‘tough love’… and a few things to process, compliments MOON – PLUTO. I’ll get to that (and we feel it…).


Next ones – 3 more this Summer, 4 altogether:

  • Fri / Sat July 23 / 24, on the cusp of AQ – LEO
  • Sun Aug 22, at the very end of AQ – LEO – ‘Blue AQ – LEO Full Moon’ on the ‘Sphinx Point’
  • Mon Sept 20, at the end of PI – VIR – just 2 days before Fall Equinox – the Harvest Moon

Happy Strawberry & Rose Moon of June!

So many beautiful flowers in full bloom now, incl. Wild Roses and cultivated Roses. Time to smell the Roses, and take their Heart Medicine in.

Wild Roses by the Sea – photo by moi, earlier this month

You might already know…
Native Americans and other traditions around the World gave names to the Full Moons of the year. Each Nation / culture has given the Full Moons of the month different names, according to what that month brings and requires.

So many names, so much diversity… directed by Nature.

My friend Otto Heitzer in Germany took this amazing photo of the strawberry coloured Full Moon – not today but some Moons ago

What does this FULL MOON mean to YOU?
And even more so, how does it MOVE YOU?

I invite you to follow the trail into the Heart of Astro~News, to find its gifts and Medicine through the read, and even more so: in your HEART! 


The first Full Moon in Summer comes with a double CAP – CAN theme:
MOON in early CAP opposing SUN in early CAN.
VENUS in late CAN opposing PLUTO retro in late CAP.

Early CAP / CAN has a double CAP / CAN undertone, late CAP has a VIR, late CAN a PI undertone.

I posted the Full Moon chart below – can you see the two polarities?

Themes of care, compassion, kindness, sensitivity, belonging, home & welcoming, children & family (CANCER)
vs. / and (Full Moon polarity axis)
Infrastructure, resources, building, big business / corporations, governments, bosses, rules, laws (CAP)

...show up big time, to come to fruition / harvest (Full MOON) now.

Even more so, as grand JUPITER in early PISCES (with CANCER undertone) is a stationary focal point now, as it just turned retro on Summer Solstice. The Big One is showing us where ‘in the family’ (in all senses) resonance, ease, and good vibrations are – and where they just aren’t, and it’s time to let go and bless rather than play the Piscean victim – perpetrator – saviour game.

MERCURY in GEM has JUST come out of retro on June 22.
This one (in square with NEPTUNE in PI) has been one of the weirdest, wildest in a looong time.
Besides all the mental / communicative havoc and bizarre labyrinths and rabbit holes we might have experienced, it showed us a lot about old thought patterns.
Would be great to RE-view now, in the out-flying ‘storm’ until end of June, and supported by Grandmother MOON.

Dec 25 / 26, 2019 Ring of Fire Eclipse Connection

Guess what?
The CAP – CAN Full Moon reconnects with the ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse on Dec 25 / 26, 2019 – also at 4° CAP!

Can’t ignore the sign that something major in the worlds of CAP comes to fruition now, connected to the seeds that were planted with that epic exact Christmas New Moon.

Out of the Old Paradigm. Into New Ways of Being
…was the motto I felt called to give to that ASE.
The blog post for the ASE on Dec 25 / 26, 2019 could be worth (re)reading, in retrospect and for integration and context about where we’re at now.


What a year and a half since Dec 2019!

Massive endeavours, infrastructural, societal and esp: HUMAN impacts in 2020. Massive shadow revelation.
SATURN, PLUTO, and JUPITER all aligned in CAP in 2020.
A historic year with long term consequences.

We’ve seen those also in the two CANCER countries of Canada (July 1, 1867) and U.S. (July 4, 1776) – with their leaders and governments (CAP) – in dire need of / undergoing massive transformation (PLUTO).

Lots of authority issues in both countries are on the table.
What’s with respecting the Earth, Nature, Natural Law, Elders and Indigenous Cultures?!
All of these are / would be expressions of a healthy CAP ‘culture’.
More layers of major systemic violations of human rights in the name of entitled authority have been shockingly revealed just even lately.
And then there’s the capitalist-colonial supremacy (CAP shadow) of disregard for Nature, esp. the last Ancient Forests.

Themes of authority – the polarity of SOLAR creative, radiant authority (Summer Solstice SUN in early CANCER) vs. / AND the earned and experienced authority of the Elder, represented by Grandmother MOON in early CAP (Winter Solstice) are now UP, with the CAP – CAN Full Moon, and VENUS – PLUTO also in CAN – CAP (more about that below).

  • Have you experienced Authority issues / conflicts, in the build-up to the Full Moon?
  • Have you projected one side or the other onto ‘the other’ and gone into outer / inner confrontation?
  • Have you on the other hand been supported by natural experienced & true lived authority by respected Elders (incl. Spirit Elders), and Good People, or: shown up as one of them (CAP) – with the effect of naturally feeling warmly welcome and inspired (CAN)?
  • How are both sides already IN you, just waiting to be reconciled?
  • What needs to be balanced in this dynamic, so that the two sides that need each other can be complementary, and create a well-rounded Natural, Organic Authority?
  • How can this turn into / show up as Soul Fulfilling Purpose?

Not an ‘easy’ MOON Scape…. you probably feel it…

Given the direction of the MOON towards PLUTO retro in CAP (their alignment will be exact / LUNA will pass PLUTO on Sat June 26 at 12:36 am PDT).
There are so many old and internal layers & sediments when it comes to internalized hierarchical / established power structures. Inner ‘archaeology’ needed – and rewarded.

It can be full-filling – on a deeper level, to connect with Elders and Ancestors, help complete old contracts, transform old contractions and conditioning, and heal in the NEW and NOW (CHIRON in ARIES is in wide – and building T-square with the Full Moon axis!).

In CAP, the MOON is in ‘exile’ – furthest away from its CANCERian ‘home’ with its warm, cozy and caring qualities, in safe momma-babe connection.

  • Feeling rather ‘cold and wintry’ – at the onset of Summer?
  • Making sure resources are in place?
  • Managing scarcity and fears?
  • Being sustained / providing feels like an effort?
  • Can you channel the caring into taking care of important ‘business’ that has priority?

If these themes come up for you, it’s time to take a look at old ancestral and societal conditioning and contractions around that.

I.o.w., with the MOON approaching PLUTO retro in CAP – an inquiry could be (take your time and do this at home):

  • What does the inner / old authority say to the need to be safe, cared for, and caring?
  • What were historic (PLUTO in CAP) traumas and hardship that your biological ancestors, Spirit Elders, or your inner karmic journey went through?
  • How can you honour and acknowledge them?
  • How can the experience find completion in YOU, rather than unconsciously self-sabotaging (also a theme with PLUTO retro), out of ‘soul loyalty’, or even guilt for having ‘a better life’ than your Elders and Ancestors?
  • What helps in the deep transformation through time, and from your inner true Soul Nature (PLUTO retro in CAP)?

And there’s also VENUS (end of CAN) involved – She opposed PLUTO end of CAP today June 23.
What’s with the healing quality of the Power of Love (esp. when the Love of Power seems to be up)?

How about creating a felt-sense Family / Ancestry mini-constellation (with placeholders from and IN Nature, like rocks, flowers, twigs…) as a Full Moon Ceremony, and seeing how it moves in you?

The Full MOON approaching PLUTO retro in CAP ushers Transformation in

Loving how the Transformation Card ‘The MOON’ can guide and inspire us in this:

The Moon (front)- Transformation Cards by Diana Varisco
  • What is your purpose and role in Evolution?

  • What transforms the old hierarchical / patriarchal structures of domination, subordination, separation?

  • Forming a chain and a circle (AQ where SATURN, ruler of CAP is now) of sisters and brothers in equality and cooperation beyond old hierarchies and separations IS building the NEW.
The Moon (back)- Transformation Cards by Diana Varisco

A ‘serious MOON business’ as it seems.

An important Full MOON.
Soul-Full-Filling Completion.

The Full Moon in CAP, ruled by SATURN links to a theme that we’ll see continuing throughout the year, both themes just activated in June:

The triple square from SATURN in AQ with URANUS in TAU in 2021 (Feb 17, June 14 – with SATURN retro -, and Dec 23):
A conflict between old (order) and new (chaos, awakening).

Plus, ‘Wounded Healer’ / Medicine Bringer CHIRON in early ARIES squares the Full Moon axis!

With that, the triple sextile from SATURN in AQ with CHIRON in ARIES in 2021 (Feb 9, June 23 – with SATURN retro -, and Nov 26) gets activated by the Full MOON.

What are the prime wounds of society & various systems, and what’s the New Medicine to meet them?

It’s time to acknowledge early (ARIES) / passed-on / wounding ‘conditions’ and conditioning in society (SATURN in AQ), and be compassionate with ourselves and others (CAN).
CHIRON in ARIES brings healing and teaches us through the Medicine of emerging from the old, and being authentic in the NEW and NOW.


What are your Main Themes in this?

It isn’t comfortable, but important to acknowledge what’s there, and has perhaps been building up for a very long time and throughout society (MOON & PLUTO retro in CAP – SATURN retro in AQ).

Which can lead to an inner sense of completion – otherwise it goes in circles (the shadow of CAP is it’s never complete, always more to work on – late CAP has a VIRGO undertone).

Maybe it’s about completion as in: good enough for here-now.
Knowing we / they show up the best way we / they can, with what we / they are dealing with – nobody’s perfect.
That’s where conscious SoUlar CANCERian (self)compassion and VENUSian loving kindness come in.

And on deeper levels, it’s true, certain ‘conditions’ can’t be completed…. they have ‘a life of their own’ – and come to a natural evolutionary ‘re-purposing’ transformation in their own time.
Nothing ever really ‘dies’, it just changes form – says PLUTO.

Acknowledgement is a prerequisite for ‘completion’ (so CAP).

And acceptance of a natural imperfection, impermanence and continuum takes us deeper into Living from Soul (as represented by PLUTO in CAP – which the MOON will meet on June 26).

I felt called to bring in the

Sabian Symbol 

for the Zodiac degree of the FULL MOON (3°27′ CAP)

CAPRICORN 4°
A GROUP OF PEOPLE OUTFITTING A LARGE CANOE AT THE START OF A JOURNEY BY WATER

Pulling Together Canoe Journey 2017

KEYNOTE: The ability to use natural resources and basic skills in order to achieve a group-purpose.

As this scene was recorded in the original version only in imprecise terms, it seems merely to indicate the start of a journey undertaken by a cohesive group of people, who perhaps together have built this large canoe.

Thus we see here a common enterprise which may be an answer to the need for a change of locality. A social group more strongly than ever reveals its homogeneity and common will when it decides to move away from its familiar habitat. The zodiacal sign Capricorn brings this common will to a focus in concrete actions. It does so in terms of socio-political expediency and under a definite type of executive direction, even though the decisions are arrived at by common consent.

As this is the fourth symbol in the fifty-fifth five-fold sequence, we find in it a hint of how to do something concrete. The “canoe” may also have a special technical meaning, as it uses water in order to move.
A common feeling-response to a specific situation may be implied.

The main emphasis is nevertheless on GROUP-ACTIVITY in circumstances implying a need for change.”

This Sabian Symbol brings together the CAP side of resourcing, and the CANCER side of a sea journey of a comMOONity of people. Even the theme of the Transformation Card The Moon is reflected here – together with our Spirit Brothers & Sisters we pull together into / AS the New Human Family.

The ‘familiar habitat’ in the Sabian Symbol may be literally geographic, or energetic / dimensional:
From a place of density / polarity / separation to fluidity / unity / connectedness.

JUPITER in PISCES uniting with NEPTUNE in Apr 2022 helps with this.
This grand union is of course already accessible when / as we transcend (in PISCEAN fashion) the confines and conditioning of time-space.

Argo Navis constellation in CANCER

Speaking of Sea Journeys:
The sign CANCER also involves the constellation of Argo Navis – the boat of Jason and the Argonauts in Greek Mythology

And a la CANCER (and lots of retro energy to come over the Summer) – sometimes we need to pull back to move forward.

Let’s take a look at the FULL MOON Chart

The culmination of the Full Moon will be 11:40 am PDT on Thu June 24.

It illustrates the themes described above…

See the polarity / opposition of SUN and MOON and also of VENUS and PLUTO?
Framing CAN and CAP symmetrically at 3-4 degrees at the beginning and end of the signs.

CHIRON stationary (going retro on July 15) is on the apex of a wide T-square with the Full Moon axis, calls for
Healing of the wounds of war, aggression, life as a battleground, and:
Healing through authenticity, new beginnings, and: Presence.

Also in the Full Moon ‘Boat’ (just happened / about to shift):

How does the CAP – CAN Full MOON and Her connection with PLUTO in CAP show up for you? 

Do the themes above sound familiar?
What are you processing
(MOON approaching PLUTO retro) about the ‘things of old’?

Esp. if your birthday is
end of June (early CAN),
end of December (early CAP),
end of March (early ARIES),
or end of Sept (early LIBRA)?

Or you might have your MOON, AC, or Planets in the early degrees of these cardinal signs (check out your chart, or let’s take a look together).

Then a lot of this is probably UP for you now / these days / months, and might culminate with the FULL MOON.

Important Questions with the CAP Full Moon

  • How can your basic-and-beyond needs be met, and your life be sustainable, in the context of the structures you’re living in?

  • Time for foundational changes (which may just ‘organically happen’), esp. in the areas of life relating to CAP / CAN in your chart, e.g.
    1st – 7th House: Self & Relationships,
    2nd – 8th House: Owning & Sharing,
    3rd – 9th House: Social / Local Environment & World at large,
    4th – 10th House: Home / Family & Public / Purpose,
    5th – 11th House: Creativity / Children & Community,
    6th – 12th House: Health / Wellness / Livelihood & Soul Service.

  • How about purging, repurposing, and downsizing to keep life simpler, and have all that you need – plus more time (CAP)?

  • Is the structure / the system you’ve been in changing?
    How is it sustainable? Where’s your part in the change?

CAP – CAN Axis of Family / Tribe, and Elders / Leaders

More questions – to contemplate personally, and explore with your Soul Family:

  • How can important themes round home, family, belonging, safety, emotional needs, and on the other hand (is it a dilemma?) long term building of sustaining structures, responsible working with time and resources, and ‘s-aging well’ be reconciled?

  • In a time where nuclear and extended families in the traditional sense seem to lose their cohesiveness (or will there be a renaissance?) – what’s your world of home and family transforming into?
    Where / who is your tribe?

  • Who are the Elders and leaders you turn to for guidance?
    Who are your Spirit Elders?
    Your inner Elder might be waiting to connect with you.

All important questions to explore and LIVE now, under the Full Moon dynamic and beyond.

They’ll be deepened and brought again to our consciousness with the CANCER New Moon on July 9, in square with stationary (going retro on July 15) CHIRON in ARIES and wide opposition with PLUTO retro in CAP.

Much Love and Cosmic Blessings for the CAP – CAN Full Moon!

VENUS in LEO (June 26 – July 21) – Love Yourself & Show Your Love!

22 Jun

Boom – here comes the not-to-be-missed Golden Glory of VENUS in LEO!

Quite the fiery end of June & July – no boredom:

  • Wild LILITH will change signs, from TAU to GEM, on JULY 18. Wild Voices. Wild Nature Calling. Stay tuned for the ASTRO~News article dedicated to LILITH in GEM (July 18 – Apr 15).

  • The SUN enters LEO on July 22 – Season of full-ON Summer Glow & Heart Radiance.

  • And, here she comes: Lady VENUS will be in LEO domain from June 26 – July 21 – meowy roarrr!

Celebrate, Let your Hair down, Show your Mane, and most of all: 
Live Life Lovingly!

What’d you got to show us?
Your LEOnine side will be quite the radiant magnet these weeks!

No need for / notice low vibrational LEO compensations, like: being narcissistic, too self enamored w/o being genuinely self-loving, a high maintenance spoiled brat / diva (the shadow sides of LEO that everyone else BUT the LEO sees, hilarious actually…).

What’s ‘She’ up to, during Her ‘Cat Walk’?

Which other Archetypes does ‘She’ flirt with or date, while in LEO?

VENUS in glowww-rious LEO until July 21 brings extra radiance to the early Summer Season, and is a great antidote to hard, heavy and distant, aloof, and icy SATURN in AQ (Dec 16, 2020 – March 7, 2023), showing how Humanity can be frozen in fear / kept in check / distant and separate / guarded / walled-off / masked-off from one another, what the lesson is, and what it has to do with authority (SATURN), solidarity, cooperation / co-creation, and freedom (AQ).

The opposition of VENUS and SATURN will be on the half-way point of VENUS in LEO, on July 6.
Which can show up as a crisis (also since it’s on the day of MERCURY in GEM once more squaring NEPTUNE in PI) – as in: Going back and forth between love and joy and being socially awkward / jaded / judgmental / rejecting / feeling unseen / invisible / confused.
Good to inquire into the role of the mind in all this, and release old thought patterns & programs (which prob. came up under the recent MERCURY retro in GEM).

On July 13, VENUS in LEO meets MARS!
The energy actually builds on July 12 when the LEO MOON contacts both Lovers!
Woohoo – such a great vibe for being in passionate, loving and glowing Summer mode!

Between July 15 and 18, VENUS in LEO will be on the apex of a rare Yod (aka Finger of God, Celestial Pointer) with NEPTUNE in PI and PLUTO in CAP, both presently retro.
When we’re unconditionally connected from within and in deep Soul Power we naturally-authentically shine our Loving Heart, and our vibration emanates and attracts.

With VENUS in LEO (and beyond), don’t be shy / afraid / reserved, SHINE!
Show Time, Glow & Glamour Time… and foremost: Show your LOVE!

You are Loved & Your are LOVE!


So here’s the actual Itinerary for VENUS in LEO!

JUNE 26
VENUS enters LEO (until July 21).
Warm Radiance from the Heart Attracts!

JUNE 28
VENUS in early LEO goes into quincunx with JUPITER freshly retro / stationary in early PISCES.
Go all out, and radiate your good vibes generously to the atmosphere. Your attractions are a mirror.
And it’s all a reflection of Self Love.

JULY 6
VENUS in LEO opposes SATURN retro in AQ.
Give yourself purrrmission to Live the Love! The creative & loving Divine Feminine and Inner Goddess radiates & attracts without needing to prove anything, or comply with any social standards!

JULY 7
VENUS in LEO forms a Fire Trine with CHIRON stationary (going retro on July 15) in ARIES.
Loving thyself & showing your Heart Love is Healing.
A New Love?
A fresh way of being authentically present from the inside-out, self-loving / life-loving, naturally brilliant and magnetic.

JULY 8
VENUS in LEO squares URANUS in TAU.
No room for old sticky attachments.
Set yourself free, and love yourself. Set your Heart on Fire!

JULY 12 / 13
The MOON in LEO meets VENUS, and VENUS meets MARS
Summer Celebration of Joy & Love & Passion.

JULY 15
VENUS in LEO in quincunx with (‘her’ higher octave) NEPTUNE retro in PISCES.
A Love Affair with the Universe. Don’t take things too purrrsonally. Love is letting go, and letting BE. Tune into the Divine Feminine & Universal Love.

JULY 18
VENUS in LEO in quincunx with PLUTO retro in CAP.
July 15 – 18, VENUS is on the apex of a Yod with NEPTUNE retro & PLUTO retro.
Dedicate your Love to the Well-Being of All. Find Soul Love that never gets old, and isn’t even time-bound. You are the One Love. Yours to radiate.

JULY 21
VENUS crosses over the ‘Sphinx Point’ into VIR (there until Aug 15).
From the Queen to the Priestess. Bringing our Love into Service and Alignment.

VENUS in LEO attracts and magnetizes (via) Heart Expressions & Creative Joy

…which you can access most easily via the area of life related to LEO in your chart:

1st House
How You show up 
Show your Colours and BE Yourself!
You attract reflections of your radiant Nature.

ASTRO~CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Which can lead to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel more connected with yourself and with all-that-IS, in the bigger on-going evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

I welcome you as a client who is not seeking an ‘old school reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transition, stuckness, transformational crisis, for new perspectives at a crossroad or dilemma, and for important choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!    

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?
Come over / let’s meet online, for Your private Astro session!

From time to time, I have OFFERS on which you can find on my Astrology for Self Realization FB Page.

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES
via Courses, Workshops, and Embodied Astrology

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 15 years I’ve been facilitating them) become quite potent and catalytic. The intimate Astro hubs (max 6 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!
