* Uranus Turns Retro on July 29 :: Liberation From Within!

29 Jul

Yes.
URANIAN / Promethean times we’re in…

Did you know? 2 days ago, July 25, the Mayan New Year of the Blue Spectral Storm started.

Whoa that year theme is – very URANIAN / Promethean too!

 

Kin Blue Spectral Storm 2016

Blue Spectral Storm Seal

 

http://www.13moon.com/galactic-new-year.htm states:
“The Blue Storm Year calls us to be awakened Thunder Beings; agents of electric passion and purpose; alchemists of energies; empowered self-generators; embodiments of stillness dancing; lucid World-Changers living from our centers of calm resilience.”
“ This is the Time to access the force of your inner spark as your ultimate source of power; to unleash the lightning of your soul; to be the calm eye of the storm amidst potent inner and outer transmutations and shifts of all kinds!”

 

URANUS is now in very slow moving ‘direct-to-retro STORMall July and August, since…:

* URANUS turns retro tomorrow July 29 (until Dec 29):

 

 Buddha_Blessing

LIBERATION from WITHIN

The URANIAN Turnaround (twice a year, from retro to direct – recently end of December, and from direct to retro – recently in July) is a stand-still and ‘gear shift’ in a collective (outer) and transpersonal (inner) way.

URANUS went direct on Christmas Day, Dec 25, 2015. Lots of external, collectively experienced explosive, shocking wake-up calls since then (literally explosions in airports, attacks, shootings, bombings, Brexit surprise, shocking deaths of idols David Bowie and Prince….).

Now we are shifting from primarily outward experiences with URANUS to inner ‘revolution’ and awakening.

Not to say there’s a guarantee for calm waters ‘out in the world’ but the theme is more internalized. It is also an integration of the effects from ‘external URANUS’.

The more we dedicate our energy towards embracing URANian Liberation from within the better aligned we are.

 
You’re FREE. Have always been. But maybe NOW is the time to fully wake up to it.

 

Let’s look at the SABIAN SYMBOL for the URANUS Turnaround Degree:

URANUS is now stationary, and will go retro tomorrow July 29 at 24°30’ ARIES.

Since URANUS will go retro before reaching 25°, I chose the 24th degree here:

24° ARIES:

 Curtains Breezejpg

“BLOWN INWARD BY THE WIND, THE CURTAINS OF AN OPEN WINDOW TAKE THE SHAPE OF A CORNUCOPIA.

Keynote: Openness to the influx of spiritual energies. 

The principle of abundance is brought to a further stage in this rather cryptic symbol. Physical fruition is shown operating at a more subtle and spiritual level. The wind (pneuma, spirit) blows through the open mind-window and brings into the house of personality a promise of more-than-material potency. Wind blown from a region of high pressure to one of low pressure. As the window curtains are blown inward, the individual consciousness represented by the house is receiving a more concentrated influx of spiritual energies, enabling this consciousness to extend the scope of its awareness and creative expression.

This message… is that inner growth demands not just an open mind but one able to provide a container for a spiritual harvest. The cornucopian shape of the window’s curtains suggests that the subtler translucent aspect of the mind (the curtains) has acquired a quality of plasticity enabling it to be MOLDED BY TRANSPERSONAL FORCES.”

 

This late ARIES symbol is very apropos the present ‘stormy’ URANIAN influence:

  • A fresh Spirit breeze into open minds!
  • Certain liberating realizations might indeed blow our minds!
  • Rather than going for external or sensational thrill (which is abundantly available nowadays) let’s tune into the URANIAN / Promethean gifts that liberate us FROM the mind-matrix and FOR a truly free and open mind!

 

URANUS has been the T-square catalyst of the recent CAP – CAN Full Moon (see previous post), and it will be stationary at that degree all July and August, into mid September!

A theme for the SUMMER:

Back to Nature, to our inner nature, flying high and nesting with our Spirit tribe, yet even there, not getting too settled, and staying open to transpersonal shifts and gifts that truly liberate and change us!

* July 25 is the ‘Day out of Time’ & Day of Water *

24 Jul

July 25 in Gregorian Calendar terms is considered A Day out of Time, a ‘vacuum day’ before the New (Mayan Calendar based) 13-Moon year starts on July 26!

The 13 Moons Mayan Calendar New Year is celebrated each year on the first day of the Magnetic Moon (first Moon), on July 26. The year ends on July 24. The day or Kin outside of this time – July 25 – is called Green Day. It was considered by the Maya a special day to prepare the soul for the New, and to create space for play, art, magic, and creativity.
Since 1992 calendar followers gather in different parts of the world to celebrate this special day, with festivals promoting Peace and Unity.
To tune in, in our own nature, we can just co-honour that day by taking Time OUT, and see what emerges in that space…

That July 25 / 26 date was originally correlated with the conjunction of the Sun and Sirius Rising (which will be this year on Aug 8 – stay tuned… J )

 
Introducing the 13-Moon Calendar http://www.lawoftime.org/thirteenmoon/doot.html states, “The Law of Time distinguishes between a natural timing frequency that governs the universal order, and an artificial timing frequency which sets modern human civilization apart from the rest of its environment, the biosphere. The 13-Moon Calendar is not just a solar-lunar orbital measure but is coded to galactic timing cycles, most notably the Sirius cycle. Through the 13-Moon Calendar, the human consciousness can enter a higher frequency, a galactic consciousness frequency.”

 

Biospheric-Rights

Time is Art. Biospheric Triad: One Earth – One People – One Time

 

Stepping out of linear Time, into Natural Time, and beyond the 3rd and 4th  dimension into Galactic Consciousness.

This is a BIG theme.

Very apropos the present (2008 – 2023) transit of PLUTO (representing evolution / transformation) through CAP, the Zodiac energy that rules Time. PLUTO’s transit reflects the evolution back to natural law, a resurgence of ancient, timeless wisdom and ways-of-life, and transformation of our human relationship to Time.

What are your experiences of being time bound vs. just-in-time, time-free, timeless?

 

Astrological timing and working with the time factor for clients is changing now too, with the time paradigm shift.

I keep observing and reflecting back to my clients that the planetary cycles unfold in our collectively conditioned and KNOWN Time, however even more so now in our unique OWN Time:

If our consciousness is ready for the indicated change through an astrological transit (in let’s say 2 – 3 calendar years) we don’t have to ‘go through the motions,’ and ‘wait for the year a transit is ‘due’. It might well be already happening NOW. I’ve seen that over and over in clients and myself. VERY interesting, and liberating. So cool to see and honour this effect. No more ‘old world’ ways of being ‘bound by time’. Our experience of time is so ‘elastic’: speeding up, becoming ‘scarcity’ in a disempowering way, or stretching deliciously, deepening, or ‘standing still’, as it responds to our consciousness.

 

Timing as syn-chronicity is what I’ve always loved, and it is so cool to attract those when we ‘reset’ our perception and enter IN.

As I did research on Day of Water (which is also associated with July 25) I found the amazing Messages from Water again.

 

Dr. Emoto’s water crystal research (in short: Water responds to consciousness and intent!). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masaru_Emoto – and  late Dr. Emoto`s birthday was just yesterday, July 22 – Happy Birthday – in Spirit, Love and Gratitude!

Here is one of my favourite Dr. Emoto water crystals:

Enjoy, take it in, receive its healing information and infusion!

* Guru Purnima / Guru Puja Full Moon Blessings – with the Astro ‘Gurus’ Jupiter & Saturn!

20 Jul

… There is more to the CAP – CAN Full Moon that was exact yesterday!

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

 

Ganesha

Ganesha – Elephant headed Hindu god, known to be 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.

 

Ganesh is being invoked at the onset of a journey.

We could all use some Ganesh energy nowadays, with SATURN in SAG (Sept 2015 – Winter Solstice 2017) where challenges for ‘the journey’, the trust, the path arise – only to teach us what our inner blocks and old beliefs are…

 

Aummmm! Namaste!

The light in me honours the light in you!

 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. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guru_Purnima

 

“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.

Because the energies of the Sun and Moon are both at their peak, our subtle energy channels are unusually open and receptive to absorb spiritual energy. Practices done or begun on this day will bring growth and auspiciousness in the life of the disciple.

Through sadhana (spiritual practice) and by following the Guru’s teachings, devotees can purify the mind to reflect the Atman, 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.”

 

Never too early, never too late, for spiritual practice, and connection with the inner guru / teacher / mentor / light bringer, I’d say.

Time in fact can be suspended, stretched, and can dissolve and ‘disappear’ in immersion with what IS. The guru is a bridge into vastness, spaciousness, and freedom.

 

In Astrology, the ‘Guru’ is associated with the Archetypes of JUPITER, the mentor, and SATURN, the teacher.

 

Jupiter & Earth

Jupiter and Earth – Hubble Space Telescope picture (NASA)

 

Presently, JUPITER is in mid / late VIRGO, not far from the Lunar North Node – so (rather than fretting over problems and going into excessive ‘doing mode’ – maybe out of over compensation for not ‘being enough / perfect ’ – see above description by the Tower…).

Spiritual Practice IS perfect, and very beneficial.

 

JUPITER will even go opposite CHIRON in PI on Aug 12.

May the Medicine and Harvest of our Practice ‘come together’ as we are connected, and open to receive!

 

 

Saturn & Earth

Saturn and Earth – Hubble Space Telescope picture (NASA)

 

SATURN is also very potent at this Guru Puja time, since it is now almost stationary (during August), and will go from retro (since March 25) to direct on Aug 13.

As we step out of the ‘path’ of limiting Karma and ‘Obstacles’, we SEE more clearly, and move forward with transformed understanding and strength.

 

Under PLUTO in SATURN ruled CAP (2008 – 2023), and NEPTUNE & CHIRON in PISCES (since 2011 / 2012, until 2018 / 2026) so many traditional spiritual teachings and practices (esp. Yoga and meditation) have massively reached the Western, modern cultures and become ‘mainstream’.

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

* URANUS Catalyzed CAP – CAN Full Moon (July 19) * Retour a TA Nature – Return to YOUR (True and Free) Nature!

19 Jul

Quite the ‘electrical’, explosive, erratic, unsettling charge has been building up over the last while – mirrored in world ‘shockers’ like the Nice armed truck attack, the attempted military coup in Turkey… in this past SUN – URANUS week (the SUN squared URANUS exactly on Saturday July 16).

The SUN squares URANUS twice a year (next time Jan 10, 2017).

This one was particularly charged, since

  • URANUS is a stationary ‘Focal Point’ now (mid July to mid Aug), as it’s moving very slooowly from Earth perspective, to turn retro on July 29 (until Dec 29).
  • It happened just before the FULL MOON which will be in sharp T-Square with stationary URANUS. Doesn’t happen very often… see Full Moon chart below!

The URANIAN charge that challenges our sense of safety and our need for security (CAP – CAN axis) is like a lightning bolt that kicks us out of our known comfort zone – which could be also a trap in the past, in a buffered, sleepy cocoon that is too comfortable to dare the leap into the unknown.

 

A very apropos Voyager Tarot card is The Tower (Major Arcana XVI):

 

Voyager XII Tower with Text

Voyager Tarot XVI – Tower

 

As you know, I love weaving Astrology (in private sessions, in co-created workshops and classes) together with the Voyager Tarot deck that is very evocative, and even includes Astrology related symbolism…

Looking at the card, and this description, it becomes even more obvious that captures so much that is happening in the Astro sphere, and collective psychic sphere this days.
Let me reference what I mean by that:

 

The CAPRICORN Full MOON shows us what could happen if we are strongly ruled and controlled by our needs to be secure, and hang on to old patterns and requirements of ‘getting ready, equipped, prepared’ until it’s finally ‘done’ and perfect – which of course never will….

Esp. if we were born under the CAP MOON (a challenging position, furthest away from CANCER where the MOON is ‘at home’ and nurturance is more a ‘given’), or with other CAP planets, incl. SUN. South Node, or Ascendant, we might have been conditioned through childhood circumstances and ‘soul contracts’, maybe mom or the whole family was very occupied, burdened, or for different reasons didn’t have enough time and (esp. emotional) resources to provide for a safe unconditionally loving environment. We might have ‘grown up too fast’, maybe ‘parented’ our siblings or even parents, neglecting ourselves or not being able to meet our own needs.

 

Naturally, playing ‘secure’ would be a big compensation strategy. Which could be our ‘Tower’ or ‘Castle of the Status Quo’ where everything is set up ‘just so’ – and it works… And time goes by… (all very CAP)… maybe we proclaim we want to get ready for Day X to change, but that can take forever. Late CAP where the Full MOON will fall also has a VIRGO undertone, so there is a lot of busy-ness and organizing involved, sometimes out of compensating for an inner sense of inadequacy if we are ‘just being’ ourselves. Being occupied by the Tower. Trapped in the Tower, whether a personal, interpersonal, or societal one (or many)… either way…
JUPITER is now also moving into late VIRGO, showing us the bigger picture about all these doing-mode patterns. More is definitely not always better… 🙂

Sometimes it takes external, shocking, yet perhaps liberating ‘shake-ups’ to get us out of it.

Now we’re talking URANUS

 

The purging Fire in the Tower relates to MARS, presently in late SCORPIO where alchemical purification and transformation happen. MARS will cross over the ‘PHOENIX’ (out of the Ashes) Point, from SCO into SAG on Aug 2 – which is also the day of the LEO New Moon!

 

Old limiting ‘stories’ and beliefs are now under scrutiny, with SATURN in SAG, which is still ahead of MARS, but soon passed (Aug 24)… MARS seems to be doing the ‘garbage cleaning’… so that the path may be clear soon to go ahead, lighter, and from the Heart! Everything in perfect timing!

 

Ganesha

Ganesha – Elephant headed Hindu god, known to be the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ on the path.

 

May Ganesh, the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ deity and ‘guru’ that brings us from the darkness to the light help us SEE and release the obstacles that we’ve been blind too (and bound by)! This Full Moon is also the Guru Purnima – celebration of the (inner and outer) Guru!

 

Lots of purging liberation can happen now – where Time is suspended, and transcended! While we might be conditioned to believe it takes ‘forever’ the shift can happen in ‘no time’ – if our consciousness is free.

July 25 is the ‘Day out of Time’ – and Beginning of the Mayan New Year – with an interesting theme(!)… more about it in another blog post closer to the day.

 

URANUS now in late ARIES brings the message:

You’re FREE. Have always been. But maybe NOW is the time to wake up to it.

Prometheus

Prometheus, capturing the fire of spirit and creative inventiveness from the Gods for Humanity.

 

URANUS is the planetary Archetype of Promethean spirit – a revolutionary, liberating, paradigm shifting energy. Prometheus  in Greek mythology brought the Fire of the Gods (guarded away from humans, on their ‘elite’ mountain Olympus) to Humanity. Yes, he was punished for that ‘hubris’ at first, but very resilient, and ultimately liberated through Shamanic Chiron…. http://www.islandnet.com/~licht/lilith_asteroids.htm#chiron

 

The CAP – AQ cusp where the Full Moon will be is (well, I call it) the ‘Prometheus Point’ (seriously!) of the Zodiac, where we not only climb up the mountain to the very summit (like a good CAP goat) but bring the gifts and ‘trophy’ down to Humanity, for all to share. And we cooperate with people who are also accomplished / masterful / mature, and build networks of co-creation.

 

Prometheus NYC

Liberating ‘Golden Boy’ Prometheus at the Rockefeller Centre NYC, surrounded by the Zodiac belt..

 

Hmmm, interesting themes pop up round modern Mount Olympus phenomena nowadays…: Who keeps the Fire from Humanity…?

What matters and empowers is:

What sets us FREE?

 

The Sabian Symbol for the SUN at the Full Moon opposition says:

‘Retour a la Nature’… (see below).

To which I respond, with the URANUS Catalyst:
Retour a TA Nature – Return to YOUR (true and free) NATURE!

 

Also very apropos, re: taking the leap, from old limiting beliefs…:
This cartoon to the left by Grant Snider, that came my way last week, via a ‘Daily Good’ blog http://www.dailygood.org/story/900/making-the-leap-grant-snider/ that one of my fb friends posted.

 

Making The Leap G. Snider

Says it all…

Recognizing yourself in one or several of those? 🙂 I did…

 

Maybe the FULL MOON isn’t so intensely URANIAN Charged for you, and you experience the liberation in softer and more ‘YIN’ ways.

Then, the Dynamic Polarity between CANCER SUN and CAPRICORN MOON calls to be bridged between

 

CAPRICORNIAN Lunar responsiveness to Wise and Calm Elders (or be the Elder yourself), walking your talk, and setting an example for simplicity, integrity, high quality, being content with less, while well sustained by regenerative natural powers:

Build the Boat / Abode  / Purpose (or Bridge even) you wish to BE – together with Elders, Spirit Elders, and Masters, for the liberation of all – Full Moon on the ‘Prometheus Point’.

 

the Solar late CANCERIAN child-like creativity (CAN – LEO is the ‘Creativity Point’ of the Zodiac) and playfulness, in warm, safe resonance: 

Live your Life with Joy, and Go with Your (spirit or blood) Tribe!

 

The Wise Elders / Grandparents and the Young (at Heart) are invited, if not required, to meet and gather!

And isn’t that what Humanity, societies, families, and groups need nowadays, and we all need to reconcile WITHIN us:

The Elder and the Child. Experience and Innocence.

  

* The Full Moon Chart

So here’s the Full Picture of the Astro Hologram of the Full Moon in CAP – CAN, and her ‘Entourage’:

 

CAP - CAN FM 2016 T-Square Uranus

 

  • Can you see the T-square from the FULL MOON axis to URANUS (which is now stationary – to go retro on July 29)?

 

  • MARS end of SCO, coming closer to the ‘Phoenix Point’ (cusp with SAG) which it will cross on   Aug 2 – the day of the LEO New Moon!

 

  • Grand Water Trine, of MARS in late SCO, SUN in late CAN, and CHIRON retro in late PI – softens the influence of the sharp cardinal T-Square, and brings Healing Medicine (MARS trine CHIRON just happened for the 3rd and last time on July 16) as we release, relax, and open up to the gifts of interconnectivity.

 

  • MERCURY & VENUS both in LEO are still close together (their union was exact on July 16), and in Fire trine with SATURN retro in SAG (MERCURY trine SATURN today July 18, VENUS trine SATURN on July 20): Intentional, grounded, heart-centred communication is very supported – and we might re-connect in ‘no-time’ with people whom we haven’t talked to in a long time – LOVE is the SPIRIT that ‘removes obstacles’!

 

  • JUPITER is still close to the Lunar North Node in VIR: Practice IS perfect! JUPITER has left the opposition with NEPTUNE in PI that was strong in Spring, esp. May (“Such a mess, so overwhelming, so much to do to bring order into ‘chaos’…!”). Often, the best thing we could / can ‘do’ is to bring ourselves into a good vibration, and act from there.

 

  • JUPITER will go into opposition with CHIRON in PI (was already last Nov), exact Aug 12: Reaping the harvest of doing our self sufficient ‘smart and crafty thing’, while being open, connecting, allowing, being flexible, receiving, and going with the flow… a balancing practice.

 

 

* Sabian Symbol for the Full MOON Degrees (SUN, MOON, and stationary URANUS) *

Let’s see what the Sabian Oracle has to say about the energy of their Zodiac degrees…:

The SUN of the FULL MOON opposition will be at 27°40’ CANCER.

28° CANCER says (please note: Dane Rudhyar’s interpretation was written in 1973 – 43 years ago!):

“AN INDIAN GIRL INTRODUCES HER WHITE LOVER TO HER ASSEMBLED TRIBE.

DSC02099

Re-introducing Myself to Nature (with Capricornian Oaks & Rocks) – Photo by Melanie, July 2016

Keynote: Inner rebirth through a total acceptance of the primordial values manifest in the human body and its natural functions.

Even as this symbol was formulated in the clairvoyant’s mind, a few individuals belonging to the American intelligentsia were trying to find in their absorption into the culture of the Indian pueblos of the Southwest a solution to their intellectual artificiality and personal emotional emptiness. Fifty years later this process has gained great momentum, especially among the disenchanted youth of our affluent middle class. The soul – or in Jungian terms, the ‘anima’ – is leading the sophisticated and colorless (white) intellect to a level of consciousness at which man can again operate in tune with the vast process of the biosphere, and recover the simplicity and the inner peace which city life and business deny…

What is shown here is an emotional and warm commitment to the RETURN TO NATURE which today appeals so strongly to the new generation, but which Jean Jacques Rousseau, , many great Romanticists and Gauguin long ago advocated and exemplified.”

 

The MOON of the FULL MOON opposition will be at 27°40’ CAPRICORN.

28° CAPRICORN says:

“A LARGE AVIARY.

DSC02085

Large Heron ‘Nesting Aviary’ – photo by Melanie, July 2016

Keynote: The enjoyment of spiritual values by the soul able to familiarize itself with their implications.

Birds symbolize spiritual forces, and the aviary presents us with a picture of these forces or desires contained  within a mind open to the light of psychic or Soul realities, and bringing joy and harmony to the consciousness. The strenuous ascent represented by the preceding scene (27° CAP) changes into a picture of familiarity with inspiring experiences. Yet this familiarity may also suggest a lack of spontaneity and of the thrill of discovery. To use modern terms, the peak experiences have become those of a high plateau, at which level one may loose one’s sense of direction at times.

The youthful effort to reach the summits of cultural and spiritual attunement has settled down into a complex state of inspiration, a state which at times may bring confusion because of the multiplicity of the voices to which one has become open. One may speak here of CLAIRAUDIENCE, meaning a capacity for being responsive to many inner voices.”

 

  • Having ‘found our place’ up in the heights where the air is thinner, and other ‘rare birds’ are nesting…?
  • A sophisticated, perhaps complex ‘nesting place’ – many voices, outer and inner…
  • “Now as I made it up here, and found my place amongst my peers, is that IT???” Hmmm, could be another `Tower`, even!
  • What does the inner Spirit voice say?

 

URANUS is now stationary at 24°28’ ARIES, and will go retro on July 29 at 24°30’ ARIES.

Since URANUS will go retro before reaching 25°, I chose the 24th degree here:

24° ARIES:

“BLOWN INWARD BY THE WIND, THE CURTAINS OF AN OPEN WINDOW TAKE THE SHAPE OF A CORNUCOPIA.

 Curtains Breezejpg

Keynote: Openness to the influx of spiritual energies.

The principle of abundance is brought to a further stage in this rather cryptic symbol. Physical fruition is shown operating at a more subtle and spiritual level. The wind (pneuma, spirit) blows through the open mind-window and brings into the house of personality a promise of more-than-material potency. Wind blown from a region of high pressure to one of low pressure. As the window curtains are blown inward, the individual consciousness represented by the house is receiving a more concentrated influx of spiritual energies, enabling this consciousness to extend the scope of its awareness and creative expression.

This message… is that inner growth demands not just an open mind but one able to provide a container for a spiritual harvest. The cornucopian shape of the window’s curtains suggests that the subtler translucent aspect of the mind (the curtains) has acquired a quality of plasticity enabling it to be MOLDED BY TRANSPERSONAL FORCES.”

 

Very apropos the present ‘stormy’ URANIAN influence:

  • A fresh Spirit breeze into open minds!
  • Certain liberating realizations might indeed blow our minds!
  • Rather than going for external or sensational thrill (which is abundantly available nowadays) let’s tune into the URANIAN / Promethean gifts that liberate us FROM the mind-matrix and FOR a truly free and open mind!

 

So what’s this interesting trio of Sabian Symbols for the Cardinal T-Square of SUN / MOON / URANUS telling us, in combination, in summary?

URANUS is guiding, since it will be stationary at that degree all July and August, into mid September!

A theme for the SUMMER:

Back to Nature, to our inner nature, flying high and nesting with our Spirit tribe, yet even there, not getting too settled, and staying open to transpersonal shifts and gifts that truly liberate and change us!

* SUN – SIRIUS Days!

5 Jul

SUN / SIRIUS Days!
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’?
Would be exact TODAY, July 5!
Interesting that Canada, the U.S., and France all celebrate their ‘birthdays’ nowadays… July 1, 4, and 14.
Liberation is an important theme with SIRIUS.
http://www.souledout.org/nig…/fourthofjuly/fourthofjuly.html
Wishing us all Sirian downloads for deep liberation from old conditionings and restrictions that don’t serve us anymore!

SIRIUS is such a majestic blue / multicoloured star… some of us had the privilege to view SIRIUS via my friend Stephen’s telescope, in January, when it was visible in the night sky.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sirius

 

Sirius

SIRIUS

 

Presently, SIRIUS is ‘behind the SUN / which Ancient Egyptians considered the ’70 days in the Underworld’.
SIRIUS rises again in the morning before Sunrise, calculated for 08 / 08 – the time of the Egyptian New Year, with the flooding of the Nile.
We’re also in the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ between now and then…

Here are more SIRIUS stories, a description of the astrological influence of SIRIUS, and themes of conjunction between SIRIUS (in mid CANCER) with SUN, MOON, and Planets – check it out: Do you have anything in your birth chart in mid CANCER? That’d be close to SIRIUS.

Blessings for the SIRIUS Initiation into Liberation!

This first summery Astro~News called to be short and sweet…
You might like it just as much as I do…
Keeping it consistent with the themes of the NEW MOON (with MERCURY and VENUS ‘Entourage’) in CANCER (What Nurtures?) opposite PLUTO retro in CAPRICORN (Less is More, Priorities and Essentials Matter).

 

I had a beauty-full long weekend, with lovely friends and events, ocean walks, great fresh air… so a good night’s sleep into the cozy CANCER NEW MOON is what MY inner Astro Doc prescribed.

Letting the inner conception be planted, in Lunar darkness. Maybe you too… ❤

 

Since we all ‘survived’ MARS Retro which ended last Wed June 29 we can take a rest from all the stir-ups and provocations now, and be open to receive the exquisite Healing Gifts from the Grand Water Trine between VENUS in CANCER, MARS in SCO, and CHIRON retro in PI (active all July). You can see the triangular configuration in the NEW MOON chart below.

 

Uhhh, and soo much WATER now astrologically anyhow, with SUN, MOON, and quite a few planets in Water Signs (see chart).

Let’s tune – and dive! – into the Fluidity of Life, as our emotions and needs keep changing (CAN), as deep transformational changes that are ‘out of our control’ keep happening, even in the body (SCO), and as the energetic Fabric of Life shows us that we are, and all is connected. Actually, there is just Oneness of Life (PI).

 

Dolphin Mates

“How can I be connected with the Quantum Field?” you may ask…. You ARE IN the Quantum Field. That’s like a dolphin asking, “How can I be connected with the Ocean?”

 

 

Here it comes:

The FIRST New Moon in Summer 2016 happens tomorrow Monday July 4, at 4:01 am PDT in mid Cancer – La Luna’s zodiacal ‘home domain’.

Johfra Bosschart: The Moon Rules Cancer

 

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

Whatever that means to you: Literally to your Home and 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 CAN New Moon is an excellent time for new beginnings, when it comes to HOME, CARING / NURTURANCE, and BELONGING.
Where mid CAN falls in your chart (houses, planets there) is where a seed is being planted, where ‘conception’ and new Beginnings take place (perhaps ‘in the dark’ for the time being).

Examples:

Mid CAN in your 2nd house: A new ‘conception’ of your values and assets – and literally your physical home; 5th house: New Beginnings for your Inner Child, your children, and your creativity; 11th house: New start for your home in community….

 

Voila, here is the CANCER New Moon chart:

 

CAN NM 2016

Check out the polarity of SUN / MOON / MERCURY and VENUS, all in CAN, with PLUTO in CAP – an invitation / incentive if not necessity to integrate and balance the themes of:

  • Our needs (CAN) and what’s sustainable in the long run (CAP)
  • Family (CAN) and Ancestors (CAP)
  • The needs of the People (CAN) and a change in government (PLUTO in CAP)
  • Home and belonging (CAN) and deep soul purpose (PLUTO in CAP)

 

Definitely an important New Moon for our neighbours South of the border:

 IndependenceDay

Happy Independence Day, dear Readers in the United States!

May your U.S. Birthday New Moon set the tone for a pre-election time that meets the soul of the country and the people (PLUTO opposition), so that change for the better takes on a life of its own!

 

Can you see the Grand Water Trine too, with VENUS in CAN, MARS in SCO, and CHIRON retro in PI?

Offering Healing Gifts for the Inner and Outer Masculine and Feminine, and for the Journey from our Power Centre to our Heart Centre.

 

Couple Sunset

  • 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.
    Why? Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution. Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place ‘in the hub of the wheel’ where you are less and less affected, and more and more liberated.
  • The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’ and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
    I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.
  • I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”) from me, but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source,especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or decision making processes. 

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with Astrology!

 

During the month of JULY, I’d like to offer you as a NEW Client a FREE 22-min. Short & Sweet Get-to-know Mini Session (available for max. 5 clients per week)!
