5 Sep

A shorter note this FULL MOON… since it’s all in the vibration, less in the information…

The Piscean Unification Full Moon!
We’re all in THIS.

For better or worse.
In the Music, in the Smoke.
In the Wave of it all.


The Full Moon in PISCES – VIRGO – with MOON / NEPTUNE – will be exact 3 minutes after midnight tonight PDT. Here is her chart:

PI - VIR FM 2017


How can we fix and RE-solve this or that….?
Maybe NOT.
Maybe it’s more (ALL!) about being in the Vibration of LOVE.

After Fullness, the MOON will pass CHIRON in late PI, just before midnight PDT Sept 6.

‘Healing’ happens, or at least things come into flow again, through empathy and connectedness. No fixing of faults, but being with what IS and with who they ARE.
Here’s a beautiful video that RE-emerged for our CHIRON Archetype group this week.



…through cards and images has come in as a creative wave, in our Astro sessions this week.

AMPHITRITE, an oceanic Triple Moon Goddess, married to Poseidon (which is NEPTUNE of course), yet maintaining her individuality (very VIRGO).
She can be invoked to calm our inner storms…
SO synchronistic! 





The SABIAN SYMBOL for the Full Moon at 13°53′ = 14° PISCES says:




KEYNOTE: The use of intelligence and mental subtlety as a protection against storms and trials.

Coming just after the preceding symbols and as the fourth stage of a five-fold sequence, which is usually related to some kind of technique, this symbol may at first seem irrelevant. The key to its interpretation, missed by the commentators, is fox fur. In symbolism and mythology the fox is always a clever and subtle animal. It represents the intellect at its early stage of “cunning”; in a broader sense, it also refers to “intelligence,” considered as the ability to adapt to any and all life situations. Spiritual will and the ability to stand in facing tests are necessary in any crucial or challenging situation that an individual meets within a power-oriented group. But the sword-like will often has to be shielded, and intelligence or acumen can be the most precious help in danger. It is a personal (i.e. “animal” or instinctual) shield, perhaps even a camouflage. It hides the central will, but it keeps the individual from unnecessary hardships.

What we see symbolized here is a self-protective way of meeting the inclemencies of weather, actual or psychic, which abound as one leads a life consecrated to a vaster Whole; for this very consecration arouses strong enmities. Unnecessary risks are forbidden to the initiate, for the security of the Brotherhood might be endangered. The need for PROTECTIVE SHIELDING is imperative, and glamour can be an effective shield.


Rather than emphasizing on the wearing the fox fur, let’s go with the symbolic meaning of the FOX Medicine.

So yeah, let’s creatively use PISCEAN Camouflage & Adaptation.
And Mercurial / VIRGOan Intelligence in changing situations.


Things are MOVING and moving us again indeed, after so much solid LEO fixity. ‘Flexible’ / mutable is the main modality now.

LILITH in late SAG – approaching the Galactic Centre (there in October), and leading SATURN after passing the authority / road block / obstacle on the path teacher, shows us:

Our True Intrinsic Nature is FREE. Always has been. Unconditionally.

Intentionally moving from the Heart is the SATURN job now. Karmic feedback follows (just as confirmation, not that we expect it, that would kill it).


Is MERCURY retro over?

Technically yes, this (Sept 5) morning it stopped its retro motion, and is now going slooooowly forward again. Which means: This week, MERCURY is in turnaround station, aka storm, like a gear shift, until it catches some momentum from Sunday Sept 10 on.
It will be out of post-retro ‘storm’ by then but still in post-retro ‘shadow’ until about Sept 20.

This week is a ‘HOT’ post-retro week, and it would be good to be very clear with agreements and communication, yet also an excellent time to also slow down, and RE-ceive messages that help with integrating the retro phase themes.

MARS also moved into MERCURY ruled VIRGO today (until Oct 22) – see last blog post.
A grounding effect that helps us with going for what’s in alignment, maybe a smaller scale, health / wellness focused pursuit.
Excellent for clearing and also detox after the Full Moon.

Funneling right into the PI – VIR Full Moon tomorrow:

Attunement and alignment.
Surrender and skillfulness.

Just like Yoga or surfing.


More VIRGO energy to come…

As MERCURY re-enters VIRGO on Sept 9, and VENUS joins, on Sept 19. In fact, the cuspy VIRGO NEW MOON on Sept 19 / 20 is VERY VIRGOan.

The cosmic movement to and with VIRGO calls to be grounded and practical, DO the Sacred Work that’s in alignment for us and that we came here to do, offer ceremony, ritual, and keep our body-mind-spirit Temple clear and in wellness.

Wellness is Wealth.
Wholeness is Divine.



If you’d like to tune in astrologically, whether there’s an outer ‘occasion’ and change, or you just have ‘that calling’ I invite you to get in touch.
I’m happy to support you being re-aligned and re-empowered, on your own path, and in relationships.

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.

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, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

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’ 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 transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 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!

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