Our True Nature is Wild & ONE! LILITH goes into PISCES (May 3, 2019 – Jan 27, 2020)

30 Apr

 

‘Wild Woman’ LILITH is shifting signs (only every 9 months), as ‘she’ moves out of AQ (since Aug 2018), and immerses herself in the Waters of PISCES, on May 3, 2019.

Freedom (AQ) allows for Oneness to emerge.
Having found our like-spirited community, we feel naturally, wildly connected, can relax and just be ourselves, in Oneness, and as the ONE.

With LILITH in AQ over the last 9 months, we hopefully found different, new, ‘upgraded’ community / social / cooperative friendships and alliances based on fairness, reciprocity, equality and… Freedom!
Wouldn’t work otherwise… since intrinsically Freedom loving LILITH would be out of it.
When our inner / the societal LILITH has found her community in Freedom ‘she’ feels connected and One with ALL.
There’s ease and flow.
Otherwise, when it’s not her vibe she’s ‘out of it’.

Ultimately, ‘wild’ LILITH represents our True, ‘Wild’ Nature that’s always FREE and in the ONE.

Sensing where this goes?
LILITH in PISCES will meet NEPTUNE (exact early Oct).
Rather than tapping into wild chaos, overwhelm or addiction, best to channel the energy into getting absorbed by the Unifying Field of LOVE.
LILITH will also go into sextile with SATURN / PLUTO in CAP in Sept / early Nov.
Which adds groundedness and purpose to the picture. How can your connectedness help others too?
What would be the highest purpose of the realization of your ISness?
No major challenging aspects for LILITH in PISCES – so ‘she’ can just roll & swim & surf the connectedness as ‘she’ pleases.

LILITH is 9 months in a Zodiac sign, and 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 in one of these ages? Then your LILITH might be in PISCES and you have your LILITH Return!

 

Blessings for Wildness in ONEness!

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.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in 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.

Beltane Blessings!

30 Apr

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices, and the fixed ‘Gates of Power’: BELTANE, Lammas, Samhain / Halloween, and Imbolc.

TAURUS prepares the ground for BELTANE, the mid-Spring Celtic, Pagan festival on April 30 / May 1 (in the middle of TAURUS).
It traditionally honours and celebrates fertility and fecundity of Nature!

From the beautiful Pagan page The Goddess & The Green Man with traditions and ceremonial recipes for the seasonal celebrations of the year:

Beltane is a Fire Festival. 
The word ‘Beltane’ originates from the Celtic God ‘Bel’, meaning ‘the bright one’ and the Gaelic word ‘teine’ meaning fire.
Together they make ‘Bright Fire’, or ‘Goodly Fire’ and traditionally bonfires were lit to honour the Sun and encourage the support of Bel and the Sun’s light to nurture the emerging future harvest and protect the community.”

Beltane is the time when the Green Man appears, Nature blossoms in full Spring, and when May Pole dances weave the masculine and feminine energies together.

Jumping over the Beltane (which means ‘bright fire’) bonfires kindles passion and fertility, while the Beltane ashes have protective powers.

 

Brings back memories of May Pole dancing / weaving, and Beltane Fire jumping at the Corunum Yurt outside of Victoria, some years ago, and May Pole dances in my native Bavaria.
Precious Traditions in Community… based in Nature Spirituality.

Maybe a May Pole / circle dance opportunity arises again this year???

 

HAPPY BELTANE SEASON, dear Friends near and far!
For a fertile Spring, and a bountiful Summer!

Late LIBRA – ARIES ‘Blue’ Full Moon with URANUS (Apr 19): Choose to EmBody Freedom!

18 Apr

Dear Cosmic Friends on Planet Earth!

Feeling HER?

What a Full Moon coming up tomorrow 19-04-19!

  • The second (‘Blue’) FULL MOON in LIBRA – ARIES. First one was on March 20 – Spring Equinox! Both Full Moons frame the ARIES & LIBRA spectrum where it’s about Showing Up in our Authentic Self, and our Choices, and ‘Dances’ with Others.
    Show Up in Balance, was the motto for the Spring Equinox Full Moon.
  • On the ‘Tipping Point’ from LIBRA to SCORPIO – Choices lead to Change. Dive IN!
  • Opposite the SUN and URANUS on the ‘Settling / Embodiment Point’ – EmBody the New YOU!
  • On Good Friday – the MOON will go through the SCORPIOnic depths just 1 1/2 hrs after fullness, until Easter Sunday morning, when she rises in SAG!

And there’s more in the Cosmic Equation, informing our Choices, offering Balance, helping with Authenticity and Freedom, and with meeting Reflections aka ‘good matches’.

 

So many concentrations of Energies in the World, and in our Inner Worlds at present, and yet such a need for Balance – let’s honour and align with the Potential of this very special, edgy, cuspy Full Moon!

 

Here SHE is… exactly in her Fullness at 4:12 am PDT tomorrow April 19:

 

 

Showing up with an entourage of several strong concentrations of Planetary Energies – which of course represent Archetypes IN us:

 

  • The SUN and URANUS almost united (building up, exact on Apr 22), on the ‘Settling / Embodiment Point’ from ARIES to TAURUS.
    The SUN will enter TAURUS less than 22 hrs after the Full Moon, on Apr 20 at 1:55 am PDT.
    What a wake-up call!
    To show up in a new liberated way, get out of comfort zones and outmoded habits, emBody and ‘settle into’ Freedom!

 

  • The MOON on the other side of the Earth, pointing to the complementary ‘Alchemy / Tipping Point’ from LIBRA to SCORPIO where Choices lead to Change. Make the Choice, and Dive into the Alchemy that changes you!
    Just 1 1/2 hrs after the Full Moon, LUNA will enter SCORPIO at 5:41 am PDT, for a deep dive on Good Friday and Easter Saturday / Passover, until SHE crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ and rises into SAG, on Easter Sunday morning at 8:59 am PDT.

    What an Easter alignment!

 

 

  • And what a concentration in CAP (for the whole year, esp. this Spring & Summer):
    SATURN and PLUTO, close together yet not fully meeting until Jan 12, 2020, wrapping around the lunar South Node, in wide T-square with the Full Moon axis, and opposite the Lunar North Node in CANCER – the MOON’s abode.
    The Old Empire does Expire (activated already with the CAP New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse on Jan 5 / 6). Where / what’s yours?
    End of strive and effort, doing things the hard way to prove…?
    SATURN and PLUTO are both slowly moving / stationary, to go retro on Apr 24 / 29 (until Sept 18 / Oct 2) – more support for the unraveling and downsizing of the old / from within.

 

  • The Lunar North Node in CANCER helps us to counter-balance the ‘Old Empire’ by being warm, soft, gentle, loving, caring, inviting, and compassionate with ourselves and each other, and of course: naturally playful & creative. Finding our way Home.

 

  • The CAP – CANCER dynamic influences our choices and helps us to show up in a new, liberated way:
    Which choice (and which way of making choices!) feels more like an effort / heavy lifting / old expiring way of doing things, and which ones feel loving, caring, compassionate, take you to where you feel you belong and are welcome and ‘in your element’?
    Give yourself permission and / for compassion!

 

  • Also LILITH will join the Water World soon – on May 3, when the Wild ONE goes into PISCES for the next 9 months.
    Early PISCES (where LILITH will be until Aug) has a CANCER undertone: 
    Where do you feel natural ‘wild’ resonance and belonging, independent of your bio tribe? Being at-ONE allows us to be in our True Nature.
    Join us at our LILITH into PISCES Parlour on Apr 29 for co-attuning to ‘her’ 9-months immersion.

 

  • MARS presently (until May 15) in GEMINI going into square with NEPTUNE in PI on Apr 27 can create a tension between so much mental activity, debates, conflicts, and surrender into the vaster field of union and connectedness.
    MARS is also an ego Planet – helping us to get what we (think) we want while it’s often not what’s really best…

 

  • JUPITER now also retro (Apr 10 – Aug 11) in SAG helps us with Guidance from within.
    Seeing the bigger picture, understanding the whole story, and outgrowing it, into where freedom and happiness are calling.

 

 

Sooo, I felt called this time, to look up the

SABIAN SYMBOLS for both the Full MOON and the SUN at 29° LIBRA / ARIES.

Quite amazing what they reveal:

Starting with the
FULL MOON at 29°06′ LIBRA:

HUMANITY’S VAST AND ENDURING EFFORT TO REACH FOR KNOWLEDGE TRANSFERABLE FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.

Boston Public Library (Flickr Xynn Tii)

KEYNOTE: A deep sense of participation in, and commitment to, social processes which seek to bring to all men Truth and a greater Life.

The most characteristic trait in human nature is the ability to “bind time” (as Korzybsky once stated): to transfer to others as yet unborn the harvest of our conscious experiences and our deliberate endeavors. This ability far transcends instinct and biological mutations, for it is based on consciousness, choice, will and self-sacrifice for the sake of future human beings. It rests upon a deep feeling of the value of “community”; its use increases this feeling and eventually destroys the roots of loneliness.

This fourth stage symbol suggests the technique that makes a life truly “human.”
To join others in the vast process of a living civilization is to fulfill the basic implications of the human stage of cosmic evolution — a stage characterized by CONSCIOUS PARTICIPATION.”

The very end of LIBRA takes us here to conscious choices to contribute and participate socially, and help co-create a culture and a living civilization. To make not just knowledge but lived experience and wisdom available as a legacy for future generations.
And the core of CAPRICORN would be very content with this worthwhile effort and wise choice.

 

The SUN at 29°06′ ARIES:

“THE MUSIC OF THE SPHERES.  

Gustave Dore Ecosia

KEYNOTE: Attunement to Cosmic Order.

At the fourth stage of a five-fold sequence a technique is often presented. It is based on the experiences implied in the preceding symbols. In this case, what the individual who has entered into a new realm of possibilities of action should learn is the harmonic principles operating in this realm.
The music of the spheres is the celestial embodiment of principles of polyphonic interplay. The individual advancing “on the Path” should seek to understand and realize his / her place in the vast scheme of Humanity’s evolution, in the immense Chord of the Harmony of the Universe.

The message to the seeker for meaning which is implied in this symbol is TO LISTEN TO THE INNER VOICE; to listen without personalizing this Voice in a glamour-producing manner. It is the Voice of the Whole, of which one begins to realize that one is a tiny little part – yet a significant part, for every note of the universal Chord has its place and its ineradicable meaning.”   

What a beautiful note to end the Astro~News on…

 

Blessings to YOU, for the cosmic-human Dance of Life!

MERCURY (Apr 16 – May 6) & VENUS (Apr 20 – May 15) in ARIES: Authentic Communication & Fierce Love

17 Apr

Dear Astro~News Friends!


It’s been a while since I last wrote an article here on the blog (if you’d like to tune in on a daily basis come over to my FB page)… been so immersed (yahhh – that looong MERCURY in PISCES) in seeing clients, and trip planning.

 

How has the MERCURY in PISCES phase (Feb 10 – yesterday Apr 16, incl. retro phase March 5 – 28!) been for you?

Maybe you’ve felt overwhelmed, vulnerable, exposed to and entangled with (actually also a Quantum Physics concept!) what might have appeared as chaotic yet comes with intelligence of interconnectedness – of everything!
Which is ultimately true, but scary for the separate personal identity…
MERCURY retro in PISCES has called us to let go of our agenda, judgment, doubt, and resistance,  to be open to connections in natural resonance, and to let me Universe talk to us.
Lots of experiences of what appeared to be miracles and synchronicities – showing us about the connectedness beyond time and space, in the web of life appeared in my life.

Yet also acceptance of what presented itself as loss – like through the devastating fire in Notre Dame de Paris, on the very last day of MERCURY in PISCES, where miraculously nobody lost their life, and a lot of treasures have been preserved.
Always good to be aware how paradoxical things are in PISCES.
As in: loss in some way brings gifts in disguise in another way… to be revealed.


How about reviewing the recent MERCURY in PISCES phase?
How’zit been going for you, with the mental motto / mantra
Tuning & Communing. Openness & Fluidity of the Mind?

VENUS has also been in PISCES (which is ‘her’ exalted – most ‘dignified’ place) since March 26.
Love IS. Beyond form, time, and space. A connection with / in the Universe…

 

And now for a refreshing shift and lift!

MERCURY (April 16), followed by VENUS (April 20) both move(d) over the Spring Equinox ‘Emergence Point’ from PISCES to ARIES!

…where CHIRON awaits them, since:
This year (on Feb 19, 2019), CHIRON made
its long term move into ARIES (until 2026).

All things are NEW and freshly Alive in ARIES.

 

So, let’s see how MERCURY & VENUS fare in the Spring Fire of ARIES, directly connected with CHIRON, and indirectly with other cosmic ‘Players’ in the Zodiac:

 

MERCURY in ARIES (April 16 – May 6) – approaching CHIRON:
Communicating Authentically

Butterflybaby

MERCURY entered ARIES yesterday, April 16 – for a 3-week journey in the fresh and fast and sign!
MERCURY invites us now to connect mentally with the Emergence of the NEW!

An enlivening, activating, quickening energy, post Piscean direct-retro-direct ‘floating’, dreaming, surfing, and navigating of the cosmic waves and currents of the collective mental sphere – an Odyssey for many of us… MERCURY has been in PISCES since Feb 10.

Phewww, that hasn’t always been ‘easy’, since so much has been washed up, and come to our mental attention – only to show: we are, and it IS all connected, always in-becoming. Not taking things so personally, being fluid, letting go & letting God, navigating on the path of least resistance…
MERCURY is traditionally considered ‘in exile’ in PISCES, opposite its ruled sign VIRGO, the skilled and analytical apprentice / helper, and square its other ruled sign GEMINI, the learner.
PISCES is rather the mystic.
How’s the mind of the mystic? Rather a no-mind.

Hope you could dance through, and BE with it, rather than trying hard to find a way through the waters of overwhelm and confusion.
And that you’ve taken time to release and retreat, let go of your agenda, to connect spiritually, and to be open to receive, see miracles and synchronicities.
Maybe these last 2 months with MERCURY in PISCES helped putting things into spiritual perspective – also to see the gifts in disguise (PISCES is paradoxical and likes to camouflage)…

And NOW for the NEW!

First Flight

First Flight, Photographer unknown

MERCURY entering ARIES is a big shift, and big news.
Why?

ARIES is where everything starts – Spring Equinox energy.
MERCURY as a function of the mind is very well placed in ARIES, since it lends itself to new ideas and inspiration (hopefully after a big release, surrender, and re-connection with what-IS in PISCES).
Here-now, we can get the ball rolling, in communication and new endeavours that might require courage – or rather: a fresh mental approach, and to simply give it a try, and put something forward. Be pro-active, take the first step, start the conversation, make a suggestion.
Kick your mind into gears, let fresh ideas arise!
Out of hibernation, into action, one baby step at a time!
But hey, with ARIES, things can go fast!
Any mental projects sitting on the back burner that you’d like to tackle? 

So, let’s welcome MERCURY in ARIES with all that it brings us, to set ourselves FREE from the ‘known’ and for the NEW!
Which can be raw and vulnerable – as MERCURY / CHIRON in early ARIES show (exact on the day of the Full Moon – April 19!).
Show up for yourself and authentically, directly and freshly, as YOU. That’s where the Medicine is.

And see what happens when you get the ball rolling for something that Spirit calls us to move towards. Things can go much faster now than you thought 🙂

Esp. since there’s also a ‘mutual reception’ (‘double whammy’) going on these days, with MERCURY the ruler of GEMINI in ARIES (ruled by MARS), and MARS the ruler of ARIES in GEMINI (ruled by MERCURY)!

Which all reinforces their shared themes…
…and has the effect that things can move really FAST now – which appears quite magical, just like blossoms in Spring!
Let’s give our thoughts wings, and set our loving intentions FREE!

The early-to-mid Spring atmosphere has quite a MERCURY / MARS and ARIES / GEMINI fragrance:
New (AR) ideas, contacts, interests, learning, conversations (GEM).
Stirred up / provoked / stimulated / sharp (MARS) thoughts (MERCURY).
Aggressive / assertive / argumentative / ego-driven arguments can pop up now too.
Speaking UP does really come up.
What is it you think the World or your circle of influence should know about?

Channel the fierce mental-physical energy of the GEMINI / MERCURY in ARIES Warrior into fresh, bold, animated youthful curiosity, the desire to learn (esp. languages), reading & writing something that you’re passionate about.

And into pro-actively getting in touch (yep, send them a message, phone them up!) with people whom you’d like to talk to, and perhaps cook up some Alchemy together.
And so important – esp, when ‘mind attacks’ get you:

Breathing, breathing, breathing with the Energy!

 

MERCURY contacts these other Planetary Archetypes while in ARIES: 

They’re concentrated right at the FULL MOON on Apr 19, and on May 1/2.

APRIL 19
MERCURY in AR meets CHIRON.
Communicating boldly, directly, authentically is healing.

APRIL 30
MERCURY in AR sextile MARS in GEMINI (they’re also in ‘mutual reception’ – see above)
Speak UP, and buzz around at your Heart’s desire.

MAY 1
MERCURY in AR in square with SATURN freshly retro (since Apr 29) in CAP, while the MOON also enters AR and connects with CHIRON.
Step forward and make genuine suggestions. And if not all are well received or even responded to don’t take it personally or too seriously. Just be YOU.

MAY 2
MERCURY in AR in square with the South Node and PLUTO freshly retro (since Apr 24) in CAP, before going into Fire Trine with JUPITER retro in SAG.
Dare to think outside the ‘box’ of the consensus reality and other conditioned power structures.
Do you have controversial news to share? Speak with deep understanding and wisdom, and share the bigger picture – knowing that there’s never just ONE truth. 

MAY 6
MERCURY enters TAURUS where it meets URANUS on MAY 8.
Liberated and unattached Mind.

 

VENUS in ARIES (April 20 – May 15) – also approaching CHIRON:
Fierce Love & New Feminine Emerging

Primavera – by Italian Renaissance painter G. Arcimboldo

With VENUS entering the ARIES scene on April 20, the Heroine emerges, and Newness blossoms – like fresh shoots in Spring.

VENUS in ARIES doesn’t wait to be asked ‘to dance’. She takes initiative, makes the first steps, goes for what she values, is direct and ‘in your face’.
How does VENUS in ARIES attract?
Perhaps through her rawness and courage. What you see is what you get.
No more Piscean passive princess or mystical muse. Nor an Aphrodite who competes to be the fairest and ‘chosen one’ by Paris or any other prince who gives her the ‘golden apple’.

Time for the New Feminine to emerge!

 

Here are the Planet Dates for VENUS in ARIES:

Concentrated round Apr 23, and on May 7-9.

APRIL 23
VENUS in AR meets CHIRON.
New Healing Connections. Taking bold and innocent loving initiative is healing.

MAY 7
VENUS in ARIES square SATURN freshly retro in CAP.
A dynamic conflict between being attracted to the new, and solid reasons and experience (or fear) that can hold us back. Lead on with Love.

MAY 9
VENUS in AR in Fire Trine with JUPITER retro in SAG, and in square with the South Node and PLUTO in CAP.
Rather than getting sucked into the ‘Old Empire’, let the Inner Sage and the Fierce Feminine join forces, to show where the Evolution goes.

MAY 14
VENUS in ARIES (ruled by MARS) in sextile (a VENUS aspect) with MARS in GEMINI.
Upward-onward, into a new de-lightful Dance & Alchemy.

 

Where in your chart is ARIES?


That’s where rebirth and fresh beginnings beckon!

MERCURY & VENUS freshly in ARIES in your… House help you boldly and authentically communicate / attract these areas of your Life:

ARIES NEW MOON (Apr 5) – It All Starts with YOU!

4 Apr

Happy Spring-ing, dear ASTRO~NEWS Fan!

The ARIES NEW MOON (manana Apr 5) IS in the starters, and YES:
Birth the New YOU! It All starts with YOU!

 

View from the Sacred Space where EmBody Astrology happens – next one on April 20. 

 

What are you starting – what’s beginning in your life now – sprouting from the inside-out?
Be inspired and in-spirit-ed by Nature and Your authentic Nature…, says also CHIRON freshly in ARIES.

Springy energy is quickening and arising, from the ground-UP and from the branches down, while cosmic energies support fresh starts, new approaches, and taking initiative, via

  •  The NEW MOON in ARIES tomorrow Apr 5!

  • A retro-FREE window, technically since MERCURY went out of retro on March 28 (but post-r slow moving ‘storm’ only settling on the weekend), and until JUPITER goes retro on Apr 10 (yes, next week).
    So yeah, basically the NEW MOON weekend opens a window of fresh beginnings – for you personally in the area of life related to mid-ARIES in your chart.
    Check it out, or ask me.

  • MARS the ruler of ARIES now having moved out of slow and grounded TAURUS into swift GEMINI (March 30 – May 15) helps speed up things too – starts with thoughts and dialogue.

 

The ARIES NEW MOON

…is exact tomorrow Apr 5 at 1:50 am PDT. Here’s ‘her Birth Chart’:

 

Mid-ARIES which the NEW MOON activates has a LEO undertone:
Live Life from the Inside-Out. 
Love Yourself.
Live Life Lovingly.
You ARE Life!

 

Check this out:
The mid-ARIES (15°17′) NEW MOON is the midpoint (almost exactly between) CHIRON freshly in ARIES, and URANUS freshly in TAURUS!
So, the NEW MOON is pulling together the themes of

  • The Medicine of being Authentically YOU (CHIRON now in ARIES) – read more about it here, and
  • Waking UP, and Embodying Freedom (URANUS now in TAURUS) – see full article here.

Being Heart-fully Loving, and Self-Loving First actually takes care of being Authentic, Awake, and Free!
Simple – even though not always easy…

Why not?
Mostly because of old / societal conditioning and internalized expectations…
…showing up now big time, powerfully and insidiously manifesting from within and all around (SATURN / PLUTO in CAP) while also being ‘on their way OUT’ (South Node in CAP).
The time around the Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon on Jan 5 – Let the ‘Old Empire’ Expire! has shown us a big deal about it. What’s your ‘Old Empire’?

 

What to lead with instead?
The CANCER North Node keeps reminding us of being gentle, caring, and compassionate, with ourselves as with others and in the World.
The CANCER North Node will be hugely activated by the Total Solar Eclipse in CAN on July 2, 2019 – Finding our Way Home!

 

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot Card 0 – Fool & Child

The ARIES NEW MOON tomorrow is the central NEW MOON between these two cardinal / crucial / karmic / Ecliptic NEW MOONs of the Year!

It forms a not-exact (yet in effect) cardinal T-Square to the Nodal Axis –
A karmic pressure to birth the new YOU!

So there’s another almost-hidden yet feel-able hinge effect of the ARIES NEW MOON – calling us so strongly to start with Ourselves, and take Baby Steps forward.

Be the ‘Hero of the Day’ (as my grandma used to say – and call me from time to time, endearingly-teasingly)!

Actually YES, if we could be more as little children again – with the wisdom (the ‘wise fool’) and experience gained in life, we could see the World with fresh eyes every day, and be in the NOW.

Which in turn helps an authentic CAP expression: 
Bringing out OUR Best!

 

 

Also in the NEW MOON ‘womb’:
JUPITER in U-Turn in the Galactic Centre –
Being Guided by Deep inner Wisdom.

JUPITER has reached the furthest point in the Zodiac (24°21′ SAG) this Spring from which the Giant goes retro on April 10 (until Aug 11).
Guess where the late SAG (25 – 28°) ‘pointer’ directs us to from Earth perspective? To the Galactic Centre – cosmic womb of our Milky Way Galaxy – and a super Black Hole.
The Big Unknown.
The Ultimate Questions –
Why are we here? Where are we going? What’s Creation all about?
The Big Existential Awe.

Drawing guidance from this ultimate place…

…which brings us also quite radically into the NOW.

 

The NEW MOON in your… House energizes and activates these areas of your Life:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

3rd House:

SERVICES

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.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in 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.

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

MARS in GEMINI (March 30 – May 15) – Find Your Voice, and Speak Up!

3 Apr

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Reader,

A few days ‘delayed’ – my Astro~Weather Report & Medicine ‘prescription’ for MARS in GEMINI.
Gosh, so much going on here already – got the perfect ‘excuse’, with MARS in GEMINI & MERCURY ‘storm’ – since last weekend:

So. Here it is.
Bold MARS entered GEMINI on March 30, and is now flying through the ‘lightest’ Zodiac vibration until May 15!

In its 2-year cycle, MARS hasn’t been in GEMINI since Spring 2017.

Had several consults with GEMINI activated clients in the last while.
And a variety of dynamic dances of ideas, conversations, and invigorating visits / outings with friends in the lands of Spring – a fabulous initiation for MARS’s journey. A breath (or many) of fresh AIR.
Hope you resonate with your MARS in GEMINI experiences thus far!

Not only is MARS now in GEMINI, also the GEMINI Ruler MERCURY has been doing its retro-to-direct ‘U-Turn’ on March 28, and leaves the post-retro ‘storm’ on April 6.

And, we’re coming into the ARIES (ruled by MARS) NEW MOON energy!
The NEW MOON will be exactly at 1:50 am PDT on April 5.

Plus, on April 16, MERCURY (ruler of GEMINI) will go into ARIES (ruled by MARS), until May 6.
During that phase, MARS & MERCURY will be in each others’ Zodiac signs a.k.a. in ‘mutual reception’.

Which all reinforces their shared themes…
…and has the effect that things can move really FAST now – which appears quite magical, just like blossoms in Spring!
Let’s give our thoughts wings, and set our loving intentions FREE!

The early-to-mid Spring atmosphere has quite a MERCURY / MARS and ARIES / GEMINI fragrance:
New (AR) ideas, contacts, interests, learning, conversations (GEM).
Stirred up / provoked / stimulated / sharp (MARS) thoughts (MERCURY).
Aggressive / assertive / argumentative / ego-driven arguments can pop up now too.
Speaking UP does really come up.
What is it you think the World or your circle of influence should know about?

Better to channel the fierce mental-physical energy of the GEMINI Warrior into fresh, bold, animated youthful curiosity, the desire to learn (esp. languages), reading & writing something that you’re passionate about.

And into pro-actively getting in touch (yep, send them a message, phone them up!) with people whom you’d like to talk to, and perhaps cook up some Alchemy together.


And so important – esp, when ‘mind attacks’ get you:
Breathing, breathing, breathing with the Energy!

Physical GEMINI activities like cycling, tennis matches, multi-juggling buzzing bee energy are also apropos…

Well: Fairies would just fly….
Loved what a friend said : “When you walk or cycle the ‘idea fairies’ can be with you.”
So true, new ideas come to me too when moving in nature w/o motor involved.

GEMINI is the Alchemist of Polarities and Dualities.
The Yin & Yang, Feminine & Masculine, united in the evolved GEMINI into the ‘Phoenix’ (see painting by Johfra Bosschart) – or was it the Unicorn (just kidding)?
Yep, GEM has always more to add and comment on (just demo’ing, lol).

The MARS in GEMINI energy boost is fabulous for all YOUR GEMINI Planets, Ascendant, SUN and MOON.
Just watch not to get too distracted, and scattered into tooo many directions! 

 

MARS makes several straight-up contacts with other ‘cosmic players’, while in GEM:

 

The first contact was actually this evening
APRIL 3

MARS in GEM sextile CHIRON in AR.
Give Voice to your Healing. Being raw and vulnerable comes with it.

 

APRIL 16
MERCURY enters ARIES – mutual reception with MARS in GEM – until MAY 6.
Channel the fierce mental-physical energy of the GEMINI Warrior into fresh, bold, animated youthful curiosity. Speak UP, and buzz around at your heart’s desire.

 

No contacts from / to MARS with other Planetary Archetypes until:
APRIL 27
MARS in GEM square NEPTUNE in PISCES.
Actively inquire into the Oneness of ALL.
Ask good questions, and start a conversation where your tendency might be overwhelm, escapism, addiction, a sense of victimhood.
Learn about what’s going on when this ‘happens’, and notice how we can all resonate.

 

MAY 1 / 5
MARS in GEM in quincunx with SATURN & PLUTO stationary / retro in CAP.
A ‘weird’ yet interesting encounter between the ever curious Learner and Questioner who likes the stimuli of newness, and the calm, quiet, and stoic Sage who’s ‘seen it all’ and has nowhere to go but deep within.
Are you ‘playing out’ one or the other, or interchangeably? Both are IN you.

 

MAY 5
MARS in GEM opposite JUPITER retro in SAG (close to the Galactic Centre).
Be true to your inner Heart Path, and let them know (doesn’t have to turn into an argument – watch your tongue). Sooo many avenues to, and in fact IN Truth and Freedom! Live and let live….
Also a great vibe for explorations and adventures that involve learning, long distance travel, and the outdoors.

 

Finally, in the GEM journey, on
MAY 14
VENUS in (MARS ruled) ARIES will sextile MARS in GEM
(before they both shift into the next Zodiac signs of TAU / CAN the day after).
Happy end of the MARS in GEM journey? Definitely an energized and dynamic one:
Being out there and taking initiative can be quite casual and conversational – fast & easy, no big deal, yet joyful in the moment. I.o.w. talking people up, bantering, keeping things fresh, and learning new things as we go keeps us young at Heart.
