ARIES – LIBRA Thanksgiving Full Moon (Oct 13): Be Fully YOU, and Bring Your Authentic Nature & Love-Power into Partnership!

11 Oct

Dear Astro Activated Friend!

Boom!
The ARIES MOON is on now – since 9:46 pm PDT, and you know what that means:
She’s revving UP for her exact Fullness, opposite the LIBRA SUN, on Sun-Day Oct 13 at 2:08 pm PDT.
Just before the Canadian Thanksgiving (Mon Oct 14) – a Thanksgiving Full Moon!

Phewwww – soo much coming to fruition this season, since the LIBRA New Moon (Sept 28) and last Full Moon in PISCES – VIRGO (Sept 13)! Seems like we’re ripe for a whole new way of Being (very apropos ARIES) and Being with One Another (very LIBRA)!
Feeling it?

The warm and golden October SUN and the crispy-fresh MOONlit nights this week have been such a beautiful gift of contrast and balance.

The first Full Moon in Fall is coming up!
Not the Harvest Moon (the Full Moon closest to the Fall Equinox) which was already on Fri Sept 13.

Yet (with every Full Moon and esp. with this one!!!) it’s a good time to check in, what’s coming to Fruition, in this Harvest time!
MERCURY soon retro in SCO and ‘Harvester’ SATURN in CAP who likes inventory would agree.
And hey – SOO much has occurred and ‘fallen into our lap’ since the last Harvest Moon on Sept 13 – do you find that too?
It’s been one of the most intense and occurrences full-filled months of the year.

Clearly a call for clarity!


Lots of cosmic shifts and com-motion mirror and map the themes that have been coming to consciousness through all these cosmic activations –

Here are the EIGHT most important ones:

Hubble: Elegant Saturn Sequence

SATURN in mid-CAP went direct on Sept 18 (until May 10, 2020):
Now, what ARE we Building?

The turnaround of the ‘Ringed Reaper’ made September quite a SATURN month!
Harvest
(an association with karmic SATURN), foremost Spiritual Harvest – also the Sabian Symbol of the PI – VIR Harvest Moon on Sept 13 – , has been a BIG theme this lunar phase from Full Moon to Full Moon. 
SATURN in CAP calls us to use time and all our innate & ‘harvested’ resources (experiences are resources!) for the highest purpose. Would be worth checking where SATURN is punctuating your chart these days, and what the ‘cosmic coach’ SATURN suggests.

 

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices, incl. Mabon – Fall Equinox

Sept 23: Fall Equinox / Mabon – Perfect Balance?
The seasonal & timely prime theme since the SUN moved into LIBRA is
 Balance – Balance – Balance… Let’s hold space, and find inner Balance, these times when it’s more than ever required. Wise choices result.

LIBRA Super New Moon (Sept 28) opp. CHIRON –
Seeds of Peace, Balance, and Healing

Let’s keep watering them with the Cancerian Care of the North Node! ❤ 

 

The LILITH & NEPTUNE Union in PISCES (Oct 1) squared JUPITER in SAG –
Wave of Nature-All Heart Connectedness

Wave of Overwhelm, and / or of Unity in the Web of Life?
And that fits also beautifully with the Sabian Symbol for the ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon (below)!

 

PLUTO (New Horizons Mission 2015)

PLUTO in CAP went direct / forward on Oct 3: POWER to Change!

PLUTO-in-CAP is still in stationary U-Turn mode until mid-Oct, and a crucial ‘Player’ in the ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon – which will be in T-square with PLUTO!
MERCURY (on Sept 26) and VENUS (on Sept 30) from late LIBRA have squared PLUTO, reminding us that POWER has to do with making wise choices and finding a good match – for various purposes -, resulting in peace, balance, and harmony.
Has that transformation been going on in you already & showing you what it takes to activate Power to Change, and what needed to change in you to get there?
Via the Full Moon, the SUN in LIBRA and MOON in ARIES will now square PLUTO – extra catalysts for Power to Change.
More about those effects and its Medicine below, under the Full Moon chart.

MERCURY moved (also on Oct 3!) for 9 1/2 weeks into SCORPIO (until Dec 9)!
Prepping us for Taboo Talk, Intimate Conversations, and RE-activating our 6th Sense.

The Full Moon is a catalyst for MERCURY going into pre-retro shadow – the retro phase starts on Oct 31!

MERCURY opposed URANUS (once a year) on Oct 3 – wild card / liberating shifts in thinking and communications.
Have you been intuitive, innovative, and rolling with unexpected, incl. surprise news. No rush to ‘run with them’ though, esp if it’d come out of a ‘shock response’.

On Oct 8, VENUS also crossed over the Alchemy Point into SCORPIO:
How deep is your Love?


Tomorrow Oct 12, VENUS in SCO opposes URANUS retro in TAU
(ruled by VENUS) – which happens only once a year.

It also funnels into the Full Moon! 
Intimacy vs / and(!) Freedom in Relationships.
Freedom from the ‘Known’, from old habitual patterns that we’re attached to (either via comfort or because of unprocessed pain) and continue to attract from, until we set ourselves free. Or otherwise, Divine / Inner Soul Intervention (a Uranian thing) offers to free us.

 

Mars in Libra – Artist unknown

MARS, the ruler of ARIES, is another major cosmic player these weeks.
It’s been travelling close to the SUN this Summer (and passed by the SUN on Sept 2) which heated up the overall atmosphere.
Now, MARS is freshly in LIBRA
 (also since Oct 3, until Nov 18), ignites our Passion for Peace, Balance, Fairness, Justice, and Synergistic Partnerships, yet also turns up the ‘volume’ that pushes us to make authentic, bold, and ‘assertive’ choices -a big theme this Full Moon.

MARS opposed CHIRON in
(MARS ruled) ARIES on Oct 8 (technically ‘over’ but still rolling out until after the Full Moon). Suddenly emerging vulnerabilities (even emergencies?) call for well considered action and inter-action.
When MARS squares SATURN on Oct 27 there will be tests of responsibility & authority around choices, and when it squares PLUTO on Nov 5 it’s about choices that represent deeper change and power from within.

 

Voila – here is the chart for the exact ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon on Oct 13, at 2:08 pm PDT:

 

Can you spot the T-square of the Full Moon axis to PLUTO in CAP?
Exact to the degree – very pronounced.
PLUTO which only 10 days before the FM turned direct is the catalyst for soulful change.
And SATURN with the South Node is close to PLUTO too
(they were even closer this Spring, and come actually together on Jan 12, 2020) – demanding evidence of change that the world needs now. The time has come.

Obviously, things have come to fruition – personally (esp. if you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in the cardinal signs of ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA, or CAPRICORN I bet you’re affected), interpersonally (it’s a Full Moon!) and transpersonally / collectively / societally (PLUTO).

They call us to a New Way of Being:
Showing up authentically (ARIES), meeting all our relations (LIBRA) as we truly are, and coming from a place of maturity, integrity, and intrinsic Soul Power (PLUTO in CAP)
.  
SATURN with the South Node in CAP ‘on the side’ help us muster timeless ‘old fashioned’ virtues, show up as our true best selves, be resourceful and resilient, while bringing an end to patterns and conditioning of doing things the old outmoded and likely hard ways. High time for saying NO to being taken for granted, disrespected, or outright abused – the ‘Old Empire’ IS expiring.

 

Let’s see what the 

SABIAN SYMBOL for the Full Moon 

wants to show us:

Sparrow in Winter – Pixabay Photo by Susanne Jutzeler 


The Full Moon will be at 20°13′ ARIES – LIBRA.

ARIES 20°:
“A YOUNG GIRL FEEDING BIRDS IN WINTER.

KEYNOTE: Overcoming crises through compassion.

Nature’s seasonal rhythms imply an oscillation between living and dying. Through creative imagination humans can “fly over” the cycle, and discover means not only to escape from the fatality of seasonal decay or deprivation, but to assist other living entities to survive through crises. Migrating birds fly south (cf. symbol of Aries 12°), but by establishing a partnership with other creatures unable to escape wintry deprivation or death, a human being can maintain the life of the spirit (symbolized by birds) steady through all crises if, like a “young girl,” one is widely open to the promptings of love and sympathy.  

At this fifth stage of the symbolic sequence we witness human activity motivated by sympathy overcoming the seasonal phase of impotency. Life potency in nature spirits reaches a higher level in the human being.
The theme is THE TRANSMUTATION OF LIFE INTO LOVE.”

 

What a ‘simple’ (CAP), spontaneous (ARIES), compassionate (CANCER) symbol for our relatedness, companionship & open-hearted love to other sentient Beings (LIBRA) esp. when they need our support and can’t ‘make it’ themselves through ‘the Winter’ of crisis (PLUTO in CAP).
And it can be applied to so many situations where Nature and other Beings need our help now! Not in a polarized way that’s tainted by judgment (SN in CAP), but simply because we care and ‘innocently’ mean it, like the little girl (MOON in ARIES).


The highest level of transmutation (PLUTO in CAP) is to transform / allow Soul to transform everything, adversity, challenges, separation, even Life itself, into LOVE.

Now that evokes deep Thanks-Giving!
Being grateful for Life and Togetherness in lovingly Giving and Receiving as-in-Nature!
JUPITER in SAG, in Fire Trine with the Thanksgiving Full MOON in ARIES would benevolently agree…

 

Blessings for the ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon – and beyond!

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.

LIBRA – ARIES Spring Equinox Super Full Moon (March 20) – Show up in Balance!

18 Mar

Happy Equinox, dear  Astro Friends!

…exact at 2:58 pm PDT on Wed March 20!
To tune in, come over to the equinoctial blog article.

Dancing LEO MOON on Fire / on the Wire – Photo by moi, March 18, 2019

WOW!
Just 4 hrs after exact Spring Equinox (exact at 2:58 pm PDT on March 20) comes the exact first Full Moon in SPRING – on the ‘Perfect Balance’ axis from the cardinal starting points of ARIES & LIBRA!

It’s the ‘opposite of the Harvest Moon’ – the closest Full Moon to Fall Equinox that always appears bigger and brighter than a ‘usual’ Full Moon, and provides extra Moonlight for harvesting into the evening hours.

As you already might wonder, looking at the waxing Moon at daytime – yes, it IS also brighter than a ‘regular’ Full Moon.
It’s the 3rd of three SuperMoons (Jan 20 / TLE, Feb 19, and March 20) early this year.

 

Naturally, the theme of Balance is heightened, via the polarity axis of SUN & MOON, with the Earth in the middle, and via the MOON’s entry into LIBRA.
On the Lunar ‘Perfect Balance’  Point from VIR to LI it’s about a VIRGO practice / technique that helps us come back into Balance.

  • What helps you to come into and BE in Balance?
    Balance of peaceful rest and activity, of stimulation and reflection, of giving and receiving, of focus and r & r time, of time at the desk and time in Nature, of creativity and inspiration, of seriousness and fun, of home time and public out-there time, of learning and sharing, balance in your diet, and in the body balance of the right and left side…
  • If there’s an imbalance how does that show up in your life, and what does that show you?

I learned esp. through Yoga & Meditation practice that Balance isn’t so much a way of equating this and that, the polar opposites, but finding the Still Point in the ’emptiness’.

With the FULL MOON on the ‘Perfect Balance’ cusp from VIR to LIBRA – how’s it going with our practice and lifestyle (VIR) that support and sustain Balance?
And how can we show up (ARIES) from a well (yet of course never perfectly) balanced place?

 

Here’s a raw & spontaneous video I created in the park yesterday, apropos the Full Moon – showing up again myself, after a wintry video ‘hibernation’. Enjoy!

 

Let’s take a look at the LIBRA – ARIES Equinox Super FULL MOON chart:

The FULL MOON will be exact at 6:43 pm PDT on March 20  – less than 4 hrs after the exact Spring Equinox at 2:58 pm PDT.

 

What a super-charged and multi-connected cosmic pattern, with several inter-linked aspect configurations / closed figures that describe inter-connected themes that are on now.

If you wanna know / get a sense: A Blue Kite, 2 Yods, a Cradle, an Ambivalence Triangle, and a Mutable Grand Cross. Can you geeks see them?
I won’t go into all those ‘gestalts’ (not even under the analytical VIRGO MOON, lol) – that would be quite an oeuvre – so let’s keep it simpler…

Btw, if you’d like to learn about Planetary Patterns, Aspects, and Aspect Configurations get in touch with me. I intend to offer a new Level 3 Intermediate Astro course with that focus in the Fall, and am happy to put you on my list of friendly interested folk. Ask me any preliminary questions – they’re always welcome. I’m here to support you.

 

Back to the EQUINOX FULL MOON:

For starters / most important things first:
Look at that close alignment of the SUN at 0°09′ ARIES – on the the ‘Emergence Point’ where Life Awakens and Arises – just barely behind CHIRON at 1°44′ AR!

Out of the PISCEAN unifying waters of Oneness New Life arises.
Just as snow and ice have (hopefully in your world too) melted, the rivers are running again, fresh Life emerges from the ground-up, and from the blossoming trees out and down!
Likewise, let’s rise again, into the freshness, newness, and NOWness of Life!

‘Simply’ showing up as your authentic Self can be very raw and vulnerable, yet is healing and renewing, says also CHIRON now freshly in ARIES activated by the FULL MOON ‘equation’ as it’ll be met by the SUN on March 22 – which brings consciousness to areas of life (whether personally – in ourselves, in relationships, in society…) that call us to take action / be pro-active, make a move and take the first step.
And ultimately, to be in our Presence in the NOW.

 

‘Back’ in PISCES is MERCURY retro (until March 28), about to unite with NEPTUNE for the second time (on March 24) helps us with awareness about, and letting go of old toxic energy & mind forms that used to draw us in – almost in an intoxicating and addictive way – and perhaps allowed us to check out.
Now we can see those patterns more clearly (M-r is doing its job to re-mind us of what’s usually under the radar!) – the first step to becoming FREE.

FREE to BE!

…and URANUS now freshly in TAURUS (since the day of the last New Moon on March 6!) cooperates, by kicking us out of old habits, stuckness, and attachments, to EmBody Freedom!

 

And, as you can see in the chart:
SATURN comes very close to PLUTO now (they won’t meet until Jan 12, 2020 but travel side by side this Spring, together with the South Node, all of them between 19° and 24° CAP).
Let the Old Empire Expire continues to be the motto – brought up with the Partial Solar Eclipse with SATURN, on Jan 5 / 6. In some sense a mantra for the year.

You’re probably well aware by now what these Old Empire themes are in your life, personally, relationally, and societally…

The CAP shadows of control and abuse are a good place to check in on:
How are we treated by others / allowing them to treat us, and do we treat other people, Nature, and ourselves…?

 

MARS now in TAURUS (until March 30)- the Cosmic Gardener – brings an Earth Trine support to the CAP Concentration of Old (SATURN / SN / PLUTO).
The MARS – PLUTO alignment is exact on March 20 too, and active all week. 

Let’s engage in slowly, steadily planting new seeds that outgrow the ‘wintry conditions’, and in cultivating the transformation…
Amazing how Nature always ‘accomplishes’ what needs to ‘get done’, and ‘just in time’ (a la SATURN in CAP), and is ever transforming (PLUTO).

How can that come in, in your Life?

 

Also in the ‘cosmic web’, and strongly activated by the Super FULL MOON:

The North Node of the MOON is in late CANCER, and accentuated by a Blue Kite, and also by a Yod pointing to this ‘sensitive point’ – clearly a ‘celestial pointer’ – to what?

A NN incentive for care, compassion, gentleness, a sense of belonging, and (end of CANCER has a PISCES undertone) emotional connection in the ‘Human / Soul Family’.
Even ‘just’ re-connecting with others who are close to your Heart is sooo good, and has ripple effects.

Follow the prompting when someone comes to mind and heart!
And notice how what you put out comes back – from different yet connected sources in the ‘web of life’.

 

Star Cluster in the Galactic Centre (NASA) – Heart of our Milky Way, at the end of SAG where the SUN travels just before the WINTER SOLSTICE Point

Another Yod points ‘down’ to JUPITER in late (double) SAG – very close to the direction of the Galactic Centre – The ultimate unknowing where ‘the journey goes’, yet we can be connected to the ‘knowing source’.
Such a potent time to connect with deep Heart Wisdom & Inner Guidance.

So rare to have two Yods activated at the same time – they are called ‘Finger of God’ / ‘Celestial Pointer.
And they describe a Journey where it’s not about the destination / outcome but the process – like a pilgrimage.

 

Wall St. Bull Sculpture

OH – and what’s with VENUS in AQ – meeting LILITH on March 22 (once a year), and squaring MARS in TAU (exact on March 21)?!
That tension’s been building up too, and comes to a release with the FULL MOON.
A VENUS – MARS charge that’s mirrored in the FULL MOON in (VENUS ruled) MOON in LIBRA – SUN in ARIES (ruled by MARS).
Literally a Feminine – Masculine conflict?
The AQ Free Spirit / Feminist vs. the TAU Bully / Stubborn Guy?
In any case, the Inner Feminine and Inner Masculine are in tension at this time – a good time to explore how that shows up for and IN you!

Yesss, our True Nature is FREE – says LILITH now in AQ.
And when we come together in groups, or with friends – all in the name of Freedom and Equality via our shared Humanity, we can stand up towards territorial claims and conflicts / bullying of some who pretend they ‘own the space’. 

Standing our ground and ‘not going away’ (MARS in TAU) can be much more effective when done in groups (AQ) – beating the age old ‘divide / disperse and rule’ strategy.

On another note / ‘higher octave’ the square between VENUS / LILITH in AQ and MARS in TAU brings up / helps with spaciousness and non-attachment / beyond claim of ‘ownership’ in relationships.
Which can be quite strong now / culminating with the Super Full MOON in LIBRA – ARIES.

 

In Summary – any and all of these themes help with showing up in Balance:

  • Let’s emerge and rise again, into the freshness newness, and NOWness of Life!
  • Let’s make a move and be authentic.
  • Let’s release old energy & mind forms that used to draw us in and kick us out of balance.
  • Let’s kick old stagnant habits, stuckness, and attachments, to EmBody Freedom!
  • Let’s stop feeding the ‘Old Empire’, and let it expire.
  • Let’s consistently plant new seeds that outgrow the ‘wintry conditions’, and cultivate the transformation…
  • Let’s be caring, compassionate, gentle, tune into a sense of belonging and emotional connection in the ‘Human / Soul Family’.
  • Let’s connect with deep Heart Wisdom & Inner Guidance.
  • Let’s stand our ground – together with others.
  • Let’s cultivate non-attachment in all our relationships.

 

Inner Balance is the best way of, if not prerequisite for effectively showing up / standing up in and for Peace, Justice, Equity, you name it – what calls you to be active at this time.

 

Blessings for the Fullness of the New Season!
Melanie

SPRING EQUINOX 2019 (March 20 at 2:58 pm PDT): Happy Astrological New Year! Happy New ARIES!

18 Mar

The Astrological New Year is coming – as the SUN enters ARIES!

Happy New Year, dear Astrology Friends!

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with SPRING Equinox / Ostara, Beltane, SUMMER Solstice / Litha, Lughnassadh, FALL Equinox / Mabon, Samhain / Halloween, WINTER Solstice / Yule, and Imbolc.

SPRING EQUINOX is the day of equal daylight and night hours.
From Wed March 20 onward, the days are getting longer than the nights, in the Northern hemisphere.
It’ll be the reign of the SUN over the next 6 months, until FALL EQUINOX.


SPRING EQUINOX is one of the 4 sacred Corner Stones of the natural yearly cycle, and one of the 8 Celtic / Pagan Holidays.

This year, there will be also a FULL MOON – and SuperMOON – , on the DAY of  (just 4 hrs after) SPRING EQUINOX – super rare!
The energy is building and we feel it…
More about the ARIES FULL MOON in the Astro~News post dedicated specifically to it.

 

Easter was named after Ostara!
Yes, Easter is one of the few Christian festivals based on the Solunar calendar.

Sooo, a little MERCURY retro curiosity… I was wondering – maybe you too:
Doesn’t Easter fall on the first Sunday after the first Full Moon in Spring? Which would be already March 24.
Well, found out since by ecclesiastical rules, the Equinox according to Christianity is fixed on March 21, and doesn’t consider the actual start of ARIES. That assumption / rule places this year’s Easter Sunday on April 21, 2019 – the Sunday after the next Full Moon on April 19.
Which will be a ‘Blue Moon’ (second of two) in LIBRA – ARIES. Both Full Moons on March 20 and Apr 19 frame the ‘Season of ARIES’.

 

With the emergence of Spring, the Spirit of Newness, and Healing through Authenticity is building, as the SUN enters ARIES – to meet ‘Wounded Healer / Warrior Shaman CHIRON (now freshly in ARIES) – exact on March 22.

 

Here’s a sneak peak at the LI-AR Spring Equinox Full Moon chart:

The FULL MOON will be exact at 6:43 pm PDT on March 20  – less than 4 hrs after the exact Spring Equinox at 2:58 pm PDT.

Just look at that close alignment of the SUN at 0°09′ ARIES – on the the ‘Emergence Point’ where Life Awakens and Arises – just barely behind CHIRON at 1°44′ AR!

Out of the PISCEAN unifying waters of Oneness New Life arises.
Just as snow and ice have (hopefully) melted, the rivers are running again, and fresh Life emerges from the ground-up, and from the blossoming trees out and down!

Likewise, in these very last PISCEAN days it’s time to let go and let out-flow the old wounds and woes of Winter, and perhaps of the last 7-8 years with CHIRON in PI – and let their teaching become our healing agents.
And to rise again, into the freshness, newness and NOWness of Life!

MERCURY retro (until March 28) in PISCES, about to unite with NEPTUNE for the second time (on March 24) helps us with awareness about and letting go of old energy & mind forms that used to draw us in – almost in an intoxicating and addictive way – and perhaps allowed us to check out.

Amazing how Nature always ‘accomplishes’ what needs to ‘get done’, and ‘just in time’.
Nature is such a model for being on purpose – nature-ally!

 

MARS in TAURUS – the Cosmic Gardener – brings an Earth Trine support to the CAP Concentration of Old – their alignment is exact on March 20 too, and active all week. 

Amazing how Nature always ‘accomplishes’ what needs to ‘get done’, and ‘just in time’.
Joyful Productivity!

Here comes Aries.

Such de-light-full Rebels.

CHIRON Enters ARIES (Feb 18, 2019 – Apr 14, 2027!): The Medicine of Being Authentically You!

15 Feb

Dear Astro Medicine Friend,

Here comes one of the BIG News this year:
Shamanic CHIRON, after having been immersed in the PISCES field since 2010 makes a move: 

CHIRON is about to cross over the Spring Equinox a.k.a. ‘Emergence’ Point, to Show up & ‘Come Alive’ in ARIES on Feb 18 – ‘Delivered’ by the VIR – PI Full Moon on Feb 19!
CHIRON was last year (Apr 17 – Sept 25, 2018) already technically in very early ARIES, for a try-on / preview phase, before re-immersing itself into PISCES over the Fall and Winter 2018 / 19.

 

CHIRON the Centaur turned Warrior

Yet, from now on, there’s no more holding back:

  • ARIES Medicine comes out – calling us to be authentic.
  • Life is NOW, and This is YOU.
  • With ARIES comes also a sense of urgency – show up and act now!
  • Be a Warrior or Midwife for a new World to be born…


…after perhaps being rather passive in the exposure to the state of the world, the climate, the effects of socio-political-economical structures, and other ‘bigger than life’ influences…

CHIRON in PI has shown:
One of the PISCEAN ‘wounds’ is overwhelm through the sense that all is connected, through individual heightened sensitivity, helplessness, perhaps leading us to escape and ‘disappear’, to avoid more exposure to toxicity and harmful influences that we ‘can’t do anything about’.

No wonder, things were a bit (or a LOT) overwhelming, as CHIRON was even connected with NEPTUNE in PI, in 2013.
Maybe CHIRON (2010 – 2019) and NEPTUNE (2012 – 2026) in PISCES have been syndromes of the outflowing Pisces Age.

PISCES is full of paradoxes, showing us:
Apparent opposites are ONE… incl. when it comes to Wounding / Healing experiences, with CHIRON travelling through PI since 2010. E.g., new addictions showed up, esp to technology which promises ‘connection’ yet only offers a facade of it, not the ‘real thing’, and isolating people even more socially. Addictions are quite often based in a need for connection (another PISCEAN core wound), and for letting go of the separate self and being absorbed in something larger.
Connectedness and Oneness is a big theme and Healing Agent in PISCES.
How have you felt Healing through Connection and being ONE with the All?

If you were even born with CHIRON in PISCES (1960 – 1968) and had your CHIRON Return these past years since 2010:
How has an original wound come full circle for Healing, and as a Teaching?
How do you now carry this ‘Medicine’ for yourself and to share with others whom you connect with?


Now, as CHIRON travels for 8 years in ARIES – the archetypal Warrior – ruled by MARS:

  • All is fresh and NEW in ARIES.
  • Try out something NEW – and see the World and Yourself with New Eyes!
  • Find the Medicine of Being Authentically YOU!
  • Take Initiative. Be First. Others may be on board or follow. What matters is: YOU’re there.
  • Emerge from the Collective Consciousness. Which can be scary, and / or hugely liberating.
    Hopefully URANUS going through ARIES (2011 – 2019) has already liberated you to be YOU.
  • Be a Warrior or Midwife for the New World that’s emerging!


CHIRON brings up ‘wounds’ and awkwardness, and we feel like an outsider.
In ARIES when we show up or stand up for ourselves, and pro-actively (incl. solo) DO what matters to us. It might be also awkward if we didn’t have role models, or their teachings don’t apply to THIS. 

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

That’s what ARIES is all about: NOW THIS!
Alive, alert, letting life force emerge in every moment – like blossoms surprising us daily now. Time for fresh beginnings – or for simply being present with what’s always NEW.

Show up in a new way and in the ‘new world’, try out what you haven’t before, not in a long time, or don’t have a ‘model’ or comparison for. If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES doesn’t mind starting anew). The essence of being innovative.
Anger and being triggered to assert yourself in the moment as well as being / doing things by yourself (ARIES expressions) can be your vulnerability yet also guide you to your Medicine.

On a collective level, we’re finally waking up to the Emergency of the impacts of Climate Change.
With emergent action, as in the municipal incl. CRD declarations of Climate Emergency and calling to work for carbon neutrality / zero carbon emissions in the region by 2030.

CHIRON in ARIES (Feb 18, 2019 – Apr 14, 2027)
Meetings with other Cosmic Archetypes

Well, since it’ll be an 8-year process let’s keep it simple and closer to the NOW :-), and look ‘just’ into 2019 – 2021:

 

  • In 2019 – 2020, CHIRON freshly in ARIES will be for basically both years in a semi-sextile (one sign apart) with URANUS freshly in TAURUS (from March 6 on – comes with the PISCES NM). Both move about the same speed from Earth perspective.
    Even though, this aspect alignment is per se not a major one, yet since both Archetypes will have freshly changed signs, and URANUS having left ARIES which CHIRON enters gives it more ‘ooomph’. How?
    URANUS in ARIES (2011 – 2019) has been an initial Wake-up Call, and Awakening Agent.
    Now as URANUS goes into TAURUS (March 6, 2019) for the next 7 years, it’s about Embodying and Manifesting the New & Awake.
    CHIRON in ARIES shows our Wounds and offers Healing & Teaching Medicine for Showing up in the New World / as the New Self.

 

  • On Dec 8, 2019, stationary CHIRON in early ARIES goes into cardinal square with JUPITER freshly (from Dec 2 on) in CAP! This aspect will be active throughout end of Nov / early Dec.
    A challenge for that notion to be fresh and new in the NOW, in the face of traditions, obligations, and perhaps just before the Holidays, through having taken a lot on?

 

  • Early March 2020, LILITH freshly in ARIES meets & passes CHIRON.
    Plus the Nodal Axis, with the South Node then in early CAP and the North Node in early CAN will be T-squared by CHIRON in early ARIES.
    This looks like a major call for another level of letting the Old Empire Expire (SN in CAP) – outer and inner (e.g. doing things the hard way, and wasting time and energy with disempowered judgment and resistance)… while nurturing and being gentle and compassionate, taking pro-actively (ARIES) care of our needs, and live as the New Authentic Self in our True Nature.

 

  • In 2021, both JUPITER and SATURN by then in AQ go into sextile with CHIRON in ARIES.
    JUPITER just in Jan, SATURN 3 times, in Feb, June, and Nov.
    More support for the New and Liberated Self in Togetherness as Humanity.

 

How far does CHIRON go into ARIES this Year, 2019?

Up to 5°56 ARIES where CHIRON goes retro from, on July 8, back to 1°26 ARIES in December – going direct there on Dec 12.
So if you have your SUN, MOON, AC, Planets, or even CHIRON in early ARIES you’ll be affected by CHIRON’s passage this year.

 

CHIRON in ARIES in Your Chart & Life…

For those of you born with CHIRON in ARIES (Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977) round age 50 CHIRON will make its Return, and your ‘original wound / Medicine’ comes full circle.

For all of us (independent of age) if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in ARIES (or challenged by it, in LIBRA, CAN or CAP), CHIRON activates for the next 8 years the Medicine of these Planetary Archetypes, and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where ARIES is in your birth (and geographic local) chart/s to showing up there / with those Archetypes, in your Awake, Authentic Self.

CHIRON in ARIES gives us a ‘kick’ to take initiative, and take a step (and baby steps!) forward, authentically as we are, esp. in areas of life related to where ARIES is in our indiv. chart…:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

3rd House:
Your Environment

4th House:
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

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

6th House:
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House:
Your Partners & Significant Others

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

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

10th House:
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

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

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

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!

 

ASTRO OFFER:

VALENTINE’s Month is still on for a week:

SPRING EQUINOX 2018 (March 20 at 9:15 am PDT): Happy Astrological New Year! Happy New ARIES!

19 Mar

It is the Astrological New Year (SUN enters ARIES)!

Happy New Year, Astrology Friends out there!

Celtic Wheel of the Year,
with OSTARA / Spring Equinox, Beltane, Litha, Lughnassad, Mabon, Samhain, Yule, and Imbolc.


SPRING EQUINOX is the day of equal daylight and night hours.

From tomorrow onward, the days are getting longer than the nights, in the Northern hemisphere – the reign of the SUN over the next 6 months until FALL EQUINOX.


It is one of the sacred Corner Stones of the natural yearly cycle (with its two Equinoxes, and two Solstices).

 

Easter (celebrated on the Sunday after the First Full Moon in Spring) was named after Ostara!

Yep, Easter is one of the few Christian festivals based on the Solunar calendar.

This year, the first Spring Full Moon will be on MARCH 31, and the day after, APR 1 will be Easter Sunday!

The spirit of Newness and Liberation is building, as the SUN enters ARIES, to approach URANUS (once a year!). Their encounter will be this year on APR 18, at the very end of ARIES.

And just before that, on APR 15, will be the First NEW MOON of the Astrological Year, with MERCURY, SUN, MOON, and URANUS, all in ARIES, and CHIRON going into ARIES too, on APR 17!
Quite the firecracker kickstarter, and breakthrough catalyst!

But patience please (I know, it’s hard for lightning fast ARIES), we’re not quite there yet!
More about the ARIES NEW MOON in the Astro~News dedicated specifically to that. Stay tuned.

 

Here’s the ‘birth chart’ of SPRING 2018:

Just look at that close alignment of the SUN at 0°00′ ARIES – the ‘Emergence Point’ where Life Awakens and Arises – just barely leaving behind CHIRON at the very end of PI (the New Moon on March 17 came with CHIRON!).

Out of the PISCEAN unifying waters of Oneness New Life arises.
Just as snow and ice have (hopefully) melted, the rivers are running again, and fresh Life shows up from the ground-up, and from the blossoming trees out and down!

Likewise, this is the time to let go and out-flow the old wounds and woes of Winter, and perhaps of the last 7-8 years with CHIRON in PI – and let their teaching become our healing agents.
And to rise again, into the freshness and newness and NOWness of Life!

 

Also, MARS the ruling planet of ARIES has just entered a new sign – CAPRICORN where it’s exalted (really well positioned), which helps to get the job done – whichever project you’re tackling these months, with motivated discipline, perseverance, maturity and integrity!
A great energy to start Spring – and it reaches over into Summer!
Check out the blog post for MARS into CAP for more cosmic downloads for this period (which basically extends until mid-Sept, incl. the MARS retro phase end of June to end of Aug)!
We’ll hear more from MARS in CAP over the months to come!

 

The fresh ARIES SUN will square MARS in CAP (building up all week) on Sat March 24:
So much energy built up – use it wisely and purposefully!

On that note – for March 24 you’re welcome to join:

Astrology, Career, and Soul Purpose –
Personalized 4-hr Workshop

  • Profession and Life Purpose in Your Chart. 
  • Do the Soul Work, Expressed in Your Career. 

 

Amazing how Nature always ‘accomplishes’ what needs to ‘get done’, and ‘just in time’.
Joyful Productivity!
Nature is such a model for being on purpose – nature-ally!

ARIES MOON Alert! Igniting the Spirit, for a FIERY Week and Month!

15 Jul
 
Cornucopia FractalHave you noticed the shift from the super flowy, immersive PISCES MOON mode / mood on July 13 / 14, to a vibrant, exciting, dynamic, energetic, sparkly and spunky vibe, since today (July 15)?
 
Yep, that’s the ARIES MOON – igniting not only a fiery weekend where we better find creative outlets for all that energy, like: spontaneity and being in the moment – or else…
Since the MOON in ARIES is in ‘mutual reception’ (a double whammy) with MARS (ruler of ARIES) presently in CANCER (the home of the MOON) a lot of emotions can be provoked, evoked, stirred up (which is not a ‘bad thing’, it just could lead to premature reactions, and really, really needing to ‘do your thing’… – yet that might be just something in the moment, don’t break up over it!).
It IS a kind of emergency / alert mode. What’s up NOW? How are you in THIS moment? Maybe something’s calling, to really, really get started with…?
 
The ARIES MOON already opposed JUPITER in LIBRA this eve, and will go into trine with MERCURY in fiery LEO tonight:
Let’s appreciate every new day (and moment), all our Relations, speak from the Heart, and be authentic!
Tomorrow, July 16, the ARIES MOON will create a square with PLUTO retro in CAP, trine SATURN retro in SAG, square MARS in CANCER, and finally – tatahhhh! – meet its ‘higher octave’, the transpersonal URANUS!
Woohoo, that’s a handful of lunar alignments in one day!
Let’s ignite the Spirit, and create with Life Force!

What excites and inspires you these days?

 
For me, it’s been my Birthday, and all the wonderful wishes and blessings I received – almost overwhelming! -, and the Art: Seeing lovely friends at the Art Walk, and meeting artists – all so LIBRA – , and appreciating our artistic Victoria.
 
The MOON / URANUS ‘grand finale’ tomorrow is like fireworks of liberation, inspiration, newness, innovativeness, freshness, and rebirth!
 
 
The ARIES MOON gets the ball rolling, for an even more FIERY week, and month to come:
 
Lionesses_Drinking
  • MARS will go into LEO on July 20 – and will we ever notice a shift, from the CANCER MARS (since early June) mode that has been rather introverted, recluse, even regressive, sensitive, ‘homey’, self protective, self caring, to a self expressive energy boost: Show your Colours, be YOU!
  • On July 22, the SUN goes into LEO – full Summer glow!
  • And on July 23 will be the early LEO NEW MOON with MARS!
 
More about all that burst of Colour and Creation… soon.
You already feel it, don’t you?!

Mercury retro to direct, with Uranus: Setting the Mind FREE!

3 May
Noticing the shift???
Today Wednesday (Mercury-Day) May 3, MERCURY changed gears / direction, and is now ‘officially’ / technically out of retro!
This one was (to me) really fun and liberating – you too?

Lots of re-connections and paradigm shifts!

No wonder, it’s been cruising round URANUS, the ‘higher octave’ of MERCURY – which represents ‘universal mind’ and free spirit: Set the mind FREE – shift out of old mind-sets. It all starts / happens HERE-NOW, says ARIES. Radical presence.

 
Here’s the chart, for evidence, and to give you a sense of what else is up and on these days:
 

 

MERCURY Retro-D in AR with UR 17-05-03

MERCURY will contact URANUS one more time (#3) on May 9, AND this is still the ‘stormy’ post-retro phase (until May 12), so nowhere ‘back to normal’ (whatever that is) – Goddess forbid.
Let’s experiment (URANUS) with the new freedom. Could get used to it, eh?
Wherever late ARIES is in your chart (house, planets nearby) is where the revolution happens.

If you’d like to explore this theme consciously with me shoot me a message, and we can set up an S, M, L personal Astrology session. Always so great to get perspective and a new liberating view & approach to ‘what happens’.

 
 

Guess what the wise Sabian Symbol oracle says to the degree where MERCURY and URANUS cruise?

ARIES 25°:
“THE POSSIBILITY FOR MAN TO GAIN EXPERIENCE AT TWO LEVELS OF BEING.

KEYNOTE: The revelation of new potentialities.

In some unspecified way the symbol is a guarantee that man can operate successfully at two levels of consciousness, if he has previously met the condition mentioned in the preceding symbol. “Be open. Be able and willing to shape your translucent mind in the form revealing spiritual fulfillment. And you will be able to experience life and power on inner as well as outer planes.” The implied message is one of faith. Man can only truly experience what he deeply believes he can experience.

This is the last stage of this fifth five-fold sequence of cyclic phases. It announces the possibility of a new step in evolution, but it is still only a possibility, a promise. The individual is truly ONPROBATION.”
