The Lunar Nodes moved into CAP (SN) – CANCER (NN) (Nov 16, 2018 – June 5, 2020): Because we Care!

17 Nov

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Reader, in the Star Family!

Another major shift (besides JUPITER entering SAG on Nov 8, MARS entering PI on Nov 15, VENUS going out of retro on Nov 16, and MERCURY going retro also on Nov 16!) occurs this magical month of November:

The Lunar Nodes just moved from AQ (South Node) – LEO (North Node) into CAP (SN) – CANCER (NN) – they always go retro in the Zodiac.

 

 

Lunar Nodes 101 – and their Transits

Lunar South Node Glyph

Lunar North Node Glyph

Unlike most Astrologers, I consider the Transits of the Nodes significant.
Why?
When New Moons and Full Moons (twice a year) are close to the Nodal Axis we experience Eclipses (alignments of SUN, MOON, Earth, and Lunar Nodes) which of course affect Planet Earth and Earth Beings a lot, as we know. Not only in these ‘highlight times’ (or ‘light switchers’ of the solar or lunar reflected sunlight) do the Nodes come in… but throughout their path in the Zodiac, esp. when in contact with our astrological signatures.
They do activate us, in our Soul potential. The Nodes are ‘Karmic Pathways’, after all.

They travel in the Zodiac in an 18 1/2 year cycle.
Which means, we have our Nodal Returns at ages 18 – 19, 36 – 37, 54 – 55, 72 – 73, and 90 – 91.


If you’re just coming up to these age groups your Nodal Pathway is probably also in CAP – CAN
(in doubt, I can look it up for you).
Your original / Life themes come back to remind you about what calls you into balance – so that you don’t get drained and ‘add more karma’ (if you keep going to / with the SN), and rather support what’s nurturing and life sustaining (by engaging in the NN) – for You and All! ♥

The SOUTH NODE (SN) – aka ‘Dragon’s Tail’ in Chinese Astrology – which is in CAP for the next 1 1/2 years – is where energy needs to be digested and eliminated.
The NORTH NODE (NN) – aka ‘Dragon’s Mouth’ is where fresh cosmic energy is available to be taken in.
It’s not a ‘black and white’ / ‘good and bad’ theme with the Nodes, rather an awareness of imbalance and of correcting that.

 

What are the NODES in CAP – CANCER about?

* Releasing the CAP shadow (which is already showing up with PLUTO and SATURN, both now in CAP too – more about it below):

  • Prioritizing productivity, status, and ‘success’, at the expense of Nature and Mother Earth.
  • A linear, hierarchically separative, controlling ‘order’ that disrespects Natural Laws.
  • All types of exploitation and abuse, incl. self abuse via never having / making enough time / running out of time – by setting priorities that aren’t in alignment with what matters most – LIFE.


* Feeding and nurturing our compassionate, motherly, caring and protective CANCERian qualities: 

  • What, who, which Beings need our caring presence now?
  • Could be yourself (it’s gotta start with YOU!), and could me Mother Earth. 
  • Gentle Lunar / Mary / Kuan Yin and Fierce Kali / Durga Mother Goddess (CAN) energies can be invoked to support and supply us with the energy to show our care (CAN) and to do what we’re ‘built for’ at this critical Time (CAP).
  • Finding our Way HOME…

Examples for the contrasting Dynamic between the draining CAP SN qualities, and the CANCER NN orientation…

…to keep an eye on, and balance towards the Cancerian side while processing the CAP shadow.
JUPITER now in SAG helps with awareness that can shift the societal / public (im)balance, and brings new heart focused orientation.

The (CAP) solidified Rock / mountain – (CAN) Fresh water, wells, and the Ocean.
The Empire – The People, tribes, families, mothers & children.
Secured, protected, defended, guarded – safe and taken care of.
Patriarchy and capitalism / the boss – matriarchy / mom / grandmother is respected.
Patronizing – Mothering.
The Pyramid / hierarchy (with elites / privileges) – Everyone’s welcome in the circle.
Rules, regulations, reward / punishment system – Compassion and care.
Harsh, disciplined, “no excuse” – Taking care of needs, listening to feelings.
Construction, infrastructure, and buildings – Homes.
Business Success – at the expense of nurturing, caring qualities.
Extraction and exploitation of resources – Taking care of Mother Earth.
Colonial claiming and overusing – Culinary feeding of the kids.
Constructing artificial (time / resource) scarcity – Nature provides. Living cyclically.
Commodification of Nature into objects – Embracing and loving the Earth.
Converting Life into money – Giving birth, giving Life.
Divide and rule, organize society – Taking care of one another.
I got the resources to do it – But it doesn’t feel good.
Working the system – Being playful and creative.
Being jaded – Being like a child again.
Time is $, quantity / running after / running out of / artificial scarcity – Time is organic and fluid.
Scheduling and optimizing – Going with the flow.
Guilt and fear – Feeling safe and open.

The CAP shadow is obviously already happening, via PLUTO (since 2009) and SATURN (since Dec 2017) in CAP – showing up intensely, extremely, and destructively (PLUTO) and for real and in structural and leadership issues (SATURN), to be transformed on deep levels (PLUTO) and seriously worked on (SATURN) – to come to a place of “Been there, done that, can’t continue.” (CAP).

 

‘Dragon Dance’ of the South Node with PLUTO & SATURN in 2019

The Lunar South Node (SN) in CAP will connect with PLUTO in March / April 2019 (round 23º CAP – PLUTO will be stationary / move very slowly round 23º CAP in Apr, going retro on Apr 24), and with SATURN for even 6 months(!), from Apr to Sept 2019 (between 20º and 14º CAP, since SATURN will be stationary at 20º31′ CAP in Apr / May, going retro on Apr 29, and again stationary at 13º55′ CAP in Sept, going direct on Sept 18).

SATURN and PLUTO will be in close encounter in Apr / May 2019.
Their exact alignment will be on Jan 12, 2020.

Together with the South Node, that’s a massive pointer to process and ‘digest out of the system’ the draining and destructive CAP shadow of hierarchical top-down control, systemic (and individual) exploitation, abuse, waste of time, energy, and resources on what doesn’t matter most, creates separation, mostly serves the elite, and destroys the Earth.

The World would (and CAN) be a better place if we don’t feed more into that greedy corporate / military-industrial monster dragon, and feed the true needs of humans and all beings on our precious Mother Earth.

As Mahatma Gandhi said:
“There is enough on Earth for everybody’s need, but not enough for everybody’s greed.”

When we change our orientation towards true needs and human connection (CAN), natural laws and a healthier purpose (CAP) emerge, and are truly satisfying to build with the Human Family, and to build for a future of the Next 7 Generations…

That would be a balance / correction suggestion I’d love to see and subscribe to.

 

Lunar Nodes in CAP – CAN (Nov 16, 2018 – June 2, 2020) and Upcoming Eclipses during that phase

Yes, the Nodes tie into the Eclipses – an SoLunar concentration of the Nodal theme – either as a release (SN / Release Eclipses) or as a new beginning (NN / Seed Eclipses).
Here’s a brief overview of the upcoming Eclipse with the Nodes in CAP – CAN:

JAN 5 / 6, 2019
Partial Solar Eclipse / New Moon in mid-CAP (with the SN)

JAN 20 / 21, 2019
Total Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon on the CAN / LEO (Moon / NN) – CAP / AQ (Sun / SN) cusp 

JULY 2, 2019
Total Solar Eclipse / New Moon in mid-CAN (with the NN)

JULY 16, 2019
Partial Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon end of CAP (Moon / SN) – CAN (Sun / NN)

DEC 26, 2019
Annular Solar Eclipse / New Moon in early CAP (with the SN)

JAN 10 / 11, 2020
Partial Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon in mid-CAN (Moon / NN) – mid-CAP (Sun / SN)

These ‘Eclipse Season’ months, starting in Jan 2019 will peak in bringing up the notion for an energy release of the CAP shadow, and an energy flow towards CANCER in the next 1 1/2 years.

If your birthday is close to those dates, the Eclipses will definitely be significant for you. 
Of course, also if your MOON, AC, or Planets are close to the Eclipse points. 
Which brings us to…

 

The Lunar Nodes in CAP – CAN and YOU

If YOU have SUN, MOON, PLANETS, or AC in CAP and / or CANCER…
…this one’s for YOU! 
Can you feel it?

For ALL of US:
In the areas of Life related to where CAP – CAN is in our charts (esp. Houses wise) we are invited to source Feminine Nurturing Qualities (CAN), show our Care, and notice how natural Priorities and Purpose (CAP) follow.

B.t.w., CANCER, ruled by the MOON is in countries (esp. the Cancerian ones like Canada and the U.S.) related to The People, while CAP, ruled by SATURN (which IS now in CAP) is associated with the Government.
I.o.w., the People need to step up for what matters most – because we CARE.

 

Sending Love, Light, and Compassion – we’re all in this Cosmic Dance!

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 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.

Light of Conscious Transformation of the Status-Quo – ‘Tipping’ into a Potent SCORPIO Season!

22 Oct

Dear Astro~News Reader,

at the very end of LIBRA where the scales tip, did you make some perhaps difficult choices that had you dig into your core issues and track your core values?
I did, friends whom I spoke to did, and BC had municipal elections this weekend – with some surprising ‘Tipping Point’ results.

Choices lead to Change, says LIBRA-to-SCORPIO:

 

The SUN enters SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 22) opposing URANUS retro in TAU the same evening!

As the SUN goes over the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCORPIO – exact on Oct 23 at 4:22 am PDT – the nights are getting significantly longer, the rain season is kicking in here on the We(s)t Coast, and fog in other places, we’re called to consciously dive into Magic & Mystery.

Time to bring the Light of Consciousness into Darkness – where Transformation happens, and the Soul Power to Change is.

 

This year, the SCORPIO Season is quite charged:

  • The SUN opposes URANUS retro in TAU on Oct 23 – just 13 hrs after entering SCO:
    Radical shifts and liberating ways of getting unstuck,  i.o.w. great for changing habits, getting out of the comfort zone, clearing clutter 
    (like the beam of a flash light into what’s gathered dust and cob webs), doing a cleanse, and in general / societally also a (perhaps surprise, and liberating) shift of the all-too comfortable and security attached status quo.
    Yep / check, for the municipal elections in Victoria and other communities in BC.

  • The energy builds up to the  TAU – SCO FULL MOON on Oct 24.
    The MOON (exalted / super strong in TAU) comes with URANUS on the (un)Settling Point, while the SUN and VENUS are on the ‘Tipping Point’ of Diving into powerful Transformation – led by the Inner / Outer Feminine.

 

  • Quite the super charged FULL MOON showing what comes to fruition that’s been seeded with the LIBRA NEW MOON, or in bigger cycles.

Stay tuned for the TAU – SCO Full Moon Astro~News – on this channel and via email to subscribers (contact me at licht@islandnet.com to subscribe, or do it yourself on my FB AstroPage).

 

  • Shortly afterwards, on Fri (VENUS Day) Oct 26, will be the SUN / VENUS retro conjunction – exactly half-way through the VENUS retro phase (Oct 5 – Nov 16).
    A ‘New VENUS’  is born – a scorpionic one that-is, consciously, lovingly diving into empowering Change enticing us to…
    REgenerate the Inner Love Goddess.
    Consciously connecting with our intrinsic Value and the values that we embody.
    Fall in Love with Ourselves and with Life, and attract powerful relationships and alliances from there.

 

  • As you know, as it’s been said and felt many times, many ways:
    JUPITER has been in SCO since 10/10/2017 – rendering Fall 2017 to Fall 2018 a very scorpionic 13 months (every 12 years).
    Now, we’re with JUPITER on the ‘tail end’ of SCO – where elimination and release happen – yet also where the (self) destructive poison can be extracted / ejected.

 

  • May the poison that’s now evident (JUPITER) now truly transform into Medicine!
    The Water Trine from JUPITER in late SCO to CHIRON in late PI can help – IF we invite this Gift into our Lives:
    What connects (PI), heals (CHIRON), and transforms (SCO) big time (JUPITER)?
    JUPITER’s Trine with CHIRON will be exact on Nov 1.

 

WOW, really a lot going on from Oct 23 – Nov 1!
It’s also the All Saints / All Souls / Dia de los Muertos week where we the veils are thinner and we can connect more easily with the Spirit of the Ancestors in all dimensions.

 

 

  • Then, on Nov 8, in the middle of the SCO season,  and the day after the SCO New Moon (Nov 7), JUPITER goes over the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCO into SAG!
    Higher Understanding, Truth and Trust set us FREE!

 

For more about this massive move into JUPITER’s ruled Zodiac sign where it’ll travel until Dec 2019:
Stay tuned for upcoming email ASTRO~NEWS for the SCO New Moon with JU into SAG, the blog, FB, and YouTube – you bet! 

 

May it be a magical, alchemical SCORPIO Season in the making!

Total Solar ECLIPSE Initiation Aug 21. LILITH / SATURN Aug 22. Grand FIRE Trine: Autonomy – Agency – Authority.

19 Aug

Hey Cosmic Community, in Eclipse count-down!

SO much fiery charge is UP and around and within now, as we’re approaching THE Big Event very fast.
‘Not only’ is the Eclipse THE cosmic event of the year – definitely for the U.S.A. who even claim it as the ‘Great American Eclipse’, the only country on its Totality Path.
Just look at how fired-up the atmosphere (mirroring the astro-sphere) within and from the States is these days….!

The ecliptic New Moon – with fiery LEO MARS! – also creates a Grand Fire Trine which is ‘a good thing’, i.o.w. a growth opportunity in spirit-in-action. Where? How? Hang in, we’ll get to the specifics further down.

MERCURY retro (Aug 12 – Sept 5), now in full swing (moving faster backwards after the initial ‘U-turn’) brings Awareness and IN-sight, as a mindful witness, ob-serving the ‘Big Show’, RE-minding us to look at what we might have been blind-sighted by / to…

Lion Eye Covering

Blinded by the Light – of too much bling and ‘shiny objects / subjects’ that court for our attention, incl. narcissistic ‘selfie’ bling – this is the shadow of LEO.

A Solar Eclipse is quite simply, factually, a Light – Shadow – Light process.

The extra strong LEO Solar side and August SUN gets dramatically ‘occulted’ / overshadowed by the late LEO MOON, before LUNA moves on.

Lioness Energy stepping in front of Lion Presence….?
Let’s check out what that ecliptic process between SUN / MOON and Earth symbolizes… 
Heavens, give us signs! And they do…

An exact, super-duper NEW MOON, happening on the Initiation Point from LEO to VIRGO.
So much concentrated energy in all of this.

 

What a concentrated Eclipse Initiation Portal:

All within 27 hrs!
AUG 21:

  • Maximum Eclipse 11:21 am PDT (Occultation of the SUN by the MOON shadow starts at 9:08 am PDT)
  • NEW MOON at 11:30 am PDT, at 28° 52′ LEO.
  • The MOON crosses over the ‘Sphinx Point’ into VIR at 1:25 pm PDT.

Aug 22:

  • The SUN crosses over the ‘Sphinx Point’ into VIR at 3:20 pm PDT.

The fact that the MOON eclipses the SUN 9 min before the New Moon yet the NM is aligned with the North Node of the Moon (rather than South Node which was the ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse on Feb 26) gives it a ‘hybrid’ quality:
On one hand, the Eclipse occurs technically at the VERY end of the old lunar cycle, as the ‘Dark Moon’, and that’s about endings and release.
On the other hand, the connection of the Eclipse with the North Node of the Moon where fresh energy can be found, gives it an energy of ‘Incentive’ for uplifting, higher vibrational end-of-LEO qualities.


I.o.w., Self Awareness is the way to let-go, and to renew!
Who am I? How do I operate?
What’s working here, and what isn’t healthy and doesn’t serve – let go!

Crystal (Clear Quartz, Lemon Quartz, and Hematite) activated Voyager Tarot Card II – Priestess – Can you see the Sphinx on the right side? Crystal Activation and Photo by Melanie


Being in the Integrity of the Body-Mind-Spirit Temple, and evoking qualities of …

The Priestess perhaps, who calmly observes, and is in alignment. She owes that to herself as in: ‘Higher’ / ‘Cosmic’ Self, and to those whom she is in service to.


She sees the world as symbolic, an oracle. “See yourself in where your attention goes.” and, deeper: “You are THAT.”

Sounds a bit ‘lofty’ and ‘far out’?
Let’s bring some other flavours and voices of Astro Archetypes in that are very influential in the Eclipse energy!

 

Could the Grand Fire Trine be a SoUlution?

Definitely a ‘Divine Intervention Opportunity’ – which needs to be activated (otherwise it’s just ‘sitting there’ like money on the bank account).

 

Who are the ‘Players’ in the Grand FIRE Trine?
Well, more than half of the Astro Archetypes!

  • URANUS stationary retro at 29° ARAUTONOMY:
    Set yourself FREE, and come alive (again).
  • MARS / North Node / MOON / SUN on the Sphinx Point – AGENCY (in AWARENESS) at 29° LEO:
    Do something that’s aligned for, and from your Self, from Self Awareness, and from the Spiritual Heart. After the re-boot, re-new and re-initiate your creative play. Be bright, alive, inspiring.
    The LEO Eclipse energy can be channeled through AQ on the other side of the spectrum:

    Your creativity feeds and inspires synergy in groups and humanity!
  • LILITH / SATURN retro stationary (going direct on AUG 25) at 21° SAGAUTHORITY:
    Be the author of your ‘story’. And invite the best in everyone – in freedom!

 

Ancient Sumerian Lilith Relief, with Owls & Lionesses – ‘her’ Entourage. ‘She’s a clawed and winged one herself, strong and wise – feared by those who she ‘triggers’.

The ECLIPSE that gets all the attention (SO LEO), yet it’also a strong LILITH – SATURN week and month:

LILITH will meet and pass SATURN on AUG 22!
…which is also a major ‘game changer’, and only happens every 12 1/2 years – last time in FEB 2005 in CANCER.

A ‘wildly feminine’ / instinctual energy passing the Archetype of authority – which in its SAG shadow (one of SATURN’s jobs is to reveal the shadow, and have us work through it) shows up as a saboteur of inspiration, a linear, judgmental, righteous, dogmatic ‘boss’ / patriarch.

Yep, the inner and outer SATURN gets also symbolically ‘eclipsed’, or at least passed, in ‘Wild SAG Flight / Ride’ by LILITH who will from then on take the lead for quite a while, while SATURN follows.

A new 12 1/2 year LILITH / SATURN cycle starts – now in late SAG – the realm of the Wise Ones. May they speak UP and lead ON!

Why does that remind me of the ‘nasty woman’ quote? Well, LILITH was in SCO when it was directed towards Hillary who has a massive SCO concentration, mostly in her ‘collective’ 12th House…

For all of us, it’s time to go beyond being blocked, caged in, and held back by old stories, paradigms, labels, dogmas, and beliefs that have (even historically) produced patterns of fear from moving forward, and fear of ‘the foreign’ / ‘the other’.

Perhaps we’ve over-compensated, by living a narrow trajectory of expectations, judgments, and projections of negativity, coming up with ‘game plans’ to control (and prevent) what SAG is really about: Trusting in the journey, the adventure of LIFE itself, and to follow our Heart.

Well, SATURN has definitely taught us a lot about all this, in the last 2 years since it’s been in SAG (until Dec 19, 2017) and recently retro, pushing us to be ‘done with inner obstacles on the journey’, such as old limiting beliefs, or at least to unburden ourselves from a big part of it.

 

Owl Freeing

Where and how have we let ourselves be kept small, caged in, and prevented from growing, and living in the fullness of our truth and our path?


Besides the Total Solar ECLIPSE, this is also a LILITH shift week and month, as ‘she’ takes flight, out of SATURN’s ring /cage.

SATURN is also having a ‘Change of Heart’ or at least, a change of direction, from inward-retro to outward-direct (on Aug 25) – but can’t catch up with LILITH who’s leading now.

Hopefully (prob. painfully) we would have experienced in the SATURN retro phase since early Apr how fear can hold us back, and how it’s legit to not move forward based on intuition. Also: an inner ‘wrap-up’ of walking around with blinders on (either too focused on something that’s just not realistic, or not seeing what’s possible / lacking perspective). Now we hopefully know more. Yet, don’t let your knowing turn into dogma.

With LILITH moving past SATURN, things are shifting, and our ‘Inner Wildness’, i.o.w. our intrinsically free True Nature leads us on the path onward, with heartful inspiration and radical inner trust.

The Grand FIRE Trine theme courtesy of LILITH / SATURN in late SAG (the ‘Integrity Point’ of the Zodiac) says: Claim Intrinsic AUTHORITY, 
Can’t hurt to invoke their Archetypes. Hint: SATURN likes ritual (putting intention into form).

“The Truth Shall set You FREE” is another LILITH – SATURN in SAG theme.
Truth about what???
Clues can be found in late SAG in your, or in a relationship’s / organization’s / city’s / country’s chart.

For the U.S., that’s in the country’s first house of identity.
LILITH / SATURN at 21° SAG exactly oppose the U.S. MARS at 21°22 GEM in their 7th house of ‘significant others’, i.o.w. other countries and individuals the country is partners or opponents with – who face them, and whom the country dialogues with.

“Why are there all these enemies to the State/s and within the State/s now?”
“What does that have to do with the GEM SUN / URANUS Trumpotus / ‘precedent’?”
“What’s with all that rhetoric?”
“In whom or what can we / they trust?” (SAG)?!

 

Here’s the U.S. chart for Illustration:

 

 

The ‘Encounter Axis’ in SAG – GEM for the U.S. (Trump was born with the Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse on this axis!) brings up a few (may I understate) ‘inconvenient’ / shadowy issues to be discussed and brought to light.

Energetically / archetypally, the public figure of Trump is a catalyst who brings things into motion, the bad, the ugly, and perhaps through this ‘messy process’ the ‘good’, or neutrally put: the NEW that comes from it.

Why am I saying this?
This claimed ‘Great American’ TSE (and first Solar Eclipse over the U.S. in 99 years since 1918) catalyzes the 1st PLUTO Return for the U.S. (2020 – 2023) in the country’s history!

What does that mean?
A complete restructuring, to hopefully leading by example / from integrity, based on the core of foundational principles, incl. the essence of the American Constitution – but also and perhaps foremost: Natural Law.
Intense transformational years for the ‘Land of the Free’.

 

Prometheus – the Archetype of URANUS – Bringing the Fire of the Gods to Humanity

Speaking of Freedom, in the meantime (2016/17) URANUS in late AR has been squaring the U.S. PLUTO.
A destabilizing, unsettling, traumatic, uprising, revolutionary, and ultimately liberating energy – as we’ve seen.

The TSE in late LEO is exactly (less than 2° off) opposite the U.S. MOON in late AQ (which URANUS is ‘at home’ in):
“WE the People”! 

Vs. ‘The One / the Elite / the Special Superstars’ who get all the attention and seem to have all the Agency and political power.

The TSE brings a RE-Boot in that regard.

The curtains of the LEO stage in the shadow ‘reality show’ of drama, narcissism, and ‘high maintenance’ are being closed – done with this act!

And opened again…
Who’s the agency of ‘the curtain’?

Well, the MOON – crossing like a curtain the ‘face of the SUN’.

Total Solar Eclipse with ‘Diamond Ring’ Effect

In a country the MOON represents The People (vs The Ruler/s = The SUN). And also The Feminine. LEO type strong women who aren’t shy to ‘roar’ from the Heart.

Makes me think of a provocative FB live with Brene Brown at the occasion of Charlottesville that I saw the other day. She pointed out the need for awareness (VIR) of undeserved white privilege (LEO), incl. NOT needing to deal with any discrimination, and the shadow effects of this core narrative of the country. And the polar opposite, woven into the country’s history: Dehumanizing and objectifying ‘the others’ so that they can be treated less than human (shadow of AQ).

Very apropos MOON in LEO to see passionate strong Feminine and ‘People’ Forces ‘roaring’ now, incl. privileged women, artists, actors, and many people who express their passion (not just against but FOR).

 

What comes ‘on stage’ when ‘the curtain’ is pulled up again?
A profoundly Re-NEWed end-of-LEO energy!
What could that look like?

  • Strength through Integrity.
  • A Leadership of the Heart.
  • Channeling Passion into Healing Activism.
  • Highest Potential of Working with Spirit.

Crystal (Carnelian and Jasper) activated Voyager Tarot Card XI Strength – Photo and Crystal Activation by Melanie

And: It’s an Initiation.


That’s what happens with Eclipses.
AND on the ‘Sphinx Point’ – the LEO – VIR cusp where this one occurs.
A double dose!


In other words, the change clearly doesn’t ‘happen’ immediately / automatically.
The heavenly signs are pointers and mirrors, they don’t ‘produce’ the ‘effects’.

It might take a while to change…
To ‘handle’ one’s fiery LEO passions, and channel them into Service from the Heart.
But things ARE quickening now. Lots of build-up.

A Total Solar Eclipse for a country has effects over years…
The Initiation is being initialized, with the U.S. TSE.


The same is true for a personal chart and life.
I.o.w. if you are affected by the TSE (esp. if you have your AC, SUN, MOON, or planets in late LEO) the ‘cosmic Heart surgery’ / resurgence is under way….

 

Here’s the TSE chart, with Grand Fire Trine incl. LILITH / SATURN, and the points of Autonomy – Agency – Authority.

Check out all that FIRE (Feuer in German) in the elemental table.

 

LEO NM 2017 TSE

 

The LILITH / SATURN theme of Intrinsic Authority (i.o.w., we know what’s going on, as we follow inner guidance and wisdom, have our ‘act together’, and walk our talk) ties well together in the Grand FIRE Trine, with

URANUS in ARIES, the Awakener Archetype –  which often acts through disruptive wake-up calls, and brings us radically into our AUTHENTICITY and AUTONOMY.
URANUS also feeds into the end-of-LEO ECLIPSE energy: A Radical Renewal of AGENCY in AWARENESS.

 

What else stands out in the Eclipse chart, and at this time of cosmic ‘weather’?

SIX Planets are presently retro:

MERCURY (until Sept 5), SATURN (until Aug 25), CHIRON, URANUS, NEPTUNE, and PLUTO (until Sept 28).

Lots of old ‘unfinished business’ to deal with, and ‘inner processes’ – an important internal / preparation phase, with:

MERCURY retro in VIR (until Sept 5):
RE-considering what hadn’t been in the discussion in a while.
RE-entering the conversation, about what hadn’t been shared in a while, from a place of VIR awareness. Also a RE-fining tools, and discerning what serves / is practical and useful and what isn’t.

SATURN retro in SAG (goes direct on Aug 25):
Cropping and pruning where less is more.
Wrapping up inner limiting beliefs, world views, and ‘old stories’.
Catching the saboteur.

CHIRON retro in PI:
Why / when do I go into a mode of overwhelm?

What’s the re-curring wave of this?
How do I self-medicate with addictions?
How can I be there for others as for myself (esp. when I feel ungrounded)?

URANUS retro in AR (just turned retro on Aug 2 – Aug is quite a Uranian month):
Inner Liberation sets us FREE – unconditionally.

NEPTUNE retro in PI:
Inner and Universe-all Oneness  – you are never alone.

Not being in inner division and as the ONE – makes us immune to ‘Divide et Impera’ agenda.

PLUTO retro in CAP (goes direct on Sept 28):
Inner timelessness, call of the ancestors, inner mastery, and resource-full living.

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 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.
