July 25 is the Day Out of Time! :: And the Day of Water!

24 Jul

July 25: Day Out of Time –
Transformation of TIME as We Know It

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

Biospheric-Rights

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

The 13 Moons Mayan Calendar New Year is celebrated each year on the first day of the Magnetic Moon (first Moon), on July 26.

The year ends on July 24. The day or Kin outside of this time – July 25 – is called Green Day. It was considered by the Maya a special day to prepare the soul for the New, and to create space for play, art, magic, and creativity.

Since 1992, calendar followers gather in different parts of the world to celebrate this special day, with festivals promoting Peace and Unity.
If you like to tune in, let’s co-honour that day by taking Time OUT, and see what emerges in that playful, creative space…

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

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

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

This is a BIG theme.

Very apropos the present (2008 – 2023) transit of PLUTO (representing evolution / transformation) through CAP, the Zodiac energy that rules Time. PLUTO’s transit reflects the evolution back to natural law, a resurgence of ancient, timeless wisdom and ways-of-life, and transformation of our human relationship to Time.
What are your experiences of being time bound vs. just-in-time, time-free, timeless?

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

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

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

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

Very apropos URANUS turnaround, and the upcoming MERCURY retro also…

 

July 25 is also the Day of Water!

As I did RE-search on Day of Water (which is also associated with July 25) I re-discovered the amazing Messages from Water.

Dr. Emoto’s water crystal research says: Water responds to consciousness and intent.

And  late Dr. Emoto`s birthday was just the other day, July 22 – Happy Birthday – in Spirit, Love and Gratitude!

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

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.

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

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our small, intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.

VENUS in GEM Opposite SATURN retro in SAG (July 24): What would LOVE Say?

23 Jul

Noticing dilemmas, when it comes to the many interests vs. the one focus?

VENUS, the ‘Attractor Magnet’ has been in GEMINI since July 4. Sooo many things to learn and listen to – all interesting, yet potentially quite scattering and overwhelming (VENUS had squares with NEPTUNE in PI). Immersion into a field of learning is fine, as long as there is focus (SATURN in SAG) – or at least one thing at a time (OH, that omni-prevalent ADD phenomenon…), and coming from the Heart (SAG Archer), rather than SO much Head would be even better, says-me.

Give_it_a_TryWith VENUS in GEM opp. SATURN in SAG, right-wrong / this-that debates in relationships or otherwise negotiations that go nowhere can easily occur – if we stay head-focused.
What helps is to come back to the WHY, to the Heart, and perhaps to a spirit of gratitude and: L.O.V.E. – The ultimate Truth.
Don’t be surprised if relationships are being ‘tested’ now.
Check in, and try this on:
What would LOVE say or do?

On July 31, VENUS will move into sweet CAN (until Aug 25):
Show your love through gentleness and care, and if your feelings change like the tides dance with it.
When VENUS opposes PLUTO on Aug 15 you might feel in an all-or-nothing mode.
Or maybe something needs to change, and return to what matters most?

 

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

LEO New MOON with MARS (July 23): BE Authentically YOU!

22 Jul

Authenticity

“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.”
C.G. Jung (* July 26, 1875, born with SUN / URANUS in LEO, and AQ Rising) 

Leo-nasadh

MARS was first to ignite LEO this week, on July 20!
Check out my blog post for more about MARS in LEO this Summer (July 20 – Sept 5)! 


The SUN just entered LEO today, Sat July 22 at 8:15 am PDT (until Aug 22, it’s LEO season) and the LEO NEW MOON will be less than 24 hrs later, tomorrow SUNday JULY 23 at 2:46 am PDT!

This is the first of TWO LEO New MOONs! Super rare!
Since New Moons happen every 29 days, there IS a VERY rare chance for two to happen in the same sign of the Zodiac, under conditions like this: 1° LEO 1 and 29° LEO.

The first New Moon in LEO is on July 23, at the FIRST degree of LEO, and the second one is the Total SOLAR ECLIPSE New Moon, on Aug 21, at the LAST degree of LEO!

 

Start into LEO New MOON: BE Creatively and Authentically YOU!
End of LEO Solar Eclipse: BE Self Aware, and in your Heart Integrity!

Johfra Bosschart Leo

The Sun Rules Leo – Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

The energy at the ‘entry’ into LEO (with an ARIES undertone) feels like this:
BEING authentically YOU, naturally playful and creative – that’s the motto for THIS NEW MOON!

At the end of LEO, the ‘Sphinx Point’ (with SAG undertone) the theme is to know ourselves, and leading over to VIRGO – doing what we love, knowing how we work best, and how we can offer service from the Heart, and in Integrity…

With the double newness of LEO in 2017, let’s start fresh with our creative SoUlar Fire, BE and know ourselves, and shine our Heart Light!

 

Check it out in the NEW MOON Chart and ASTRO~WEATHER description below:
How strong LEO becomes, and how much fiery energy is showing up and building up now!
Time to show our Colours, Create from the Heart, and:
LIVE LIFE LOVINGLY!

YES!
LEO rules the fiery Solar Plexus (just take a look at that glorious SUN Lion on the JB picture!), and the Heart Chakra, and the Crown Chakra radiating powerful strength, moving, attracting,  and expressing from your beautiful Heart, and being your SoUlar Cosmic Consciousness!
All these Chakras get lit up now – and bright Summer sunlight clearly helps too 🙂

This coming week will be SUPER Martian and fiery:
The SUN meets and passes MARS (only once every 2 years) on Wed July 26 – of course in LEO! Triple-fiery (SUN, MARS, LEO)!

Let’s use that energy to go for what we’re truly passionate about, and where our Love is – in our Heart, not ‘just’ as an ego-want.
Nice practice to notice the difference…
LEO’s all-time motto: LIVE LIFE LOVINGLY guides us in this!

The LEO NEW MOON already catalyzes that energy – a seed is planted.
First ‘sprouting’ can be seen at the AQ – LEO FULL MOON on Aug 7. Where does the energy want to be directed to, and where can effects be seen?
To the complementary opposite energy of AQ – group consciousness and co-creation. Sooo, what is it that you are part of nowadays, in co-creation, with your own passionate creativity???

Early LEO NEW MOON – Creative Conception

As I’m writing the ASTRO~NEWS, it’s the Dark-before-New MOON phase, and the last day of the waning MOON is in CANCER.
A closure of the CANCER New Moon cycle (since June 23), and a perhaps homey (yep, definitely here, at my writing pod), calm & caring preparation for the super FIERY phase to come

FIRE, esp. LEO Heart Fire will be the dominant element, until the next end-of-LEO New MOON – the Total Solar Eclipse on Aug 21. 

As always, a NEW MOON is a ‘conception’ phase, as Yin and Yang / MOON and SUN meet:
It’s not ‘just’ about setting intentions (the masculine, Solar side of it – which can get very strong, with LEO and MARS involved) that the yang driven dominant culture emphasizes but equally the intuitive receptivity (the feminine, Lunar side of the – NEW MOON).

And hey, ‘even’ JUPITER nowadays in LIBRA shows us how important balance, incl. masculine / feminine balance is.
Who wants to burn burn burn, and burn out of all the fiery energy?

How can that look and feel like?

  • Maybe literally some cozy cat naps if the body asks for them.
  • Maybe ‘sleeping over’ creative ideas, and noticing what the regenerated intuition says the next morning?
  • Maybe being in nature, and inspired by her beautiful expression of the yin-yang dance.
  • Definitely important to honour the bodily, somatic experience.

Let’s tune into, receive, and express that energy and SoLunar LEO Spirit from the Loving Heart
SO much can be channeled into joyful creativity from there!
Are children around you? Play! Or be as playful as children, in your ‘adult’ life! This is the month that brings out the Inner Child most.
Great to be around animals too, and to let the Inner Artist FREE!

Wherever early LEO is in your chart that’s the area of life that invites you to be receptive and pro-active around new authentic creativity and playful lovingness!
Maybe there are even planets there? Bring new life affirming energy to those inner Archetypes!

If you’re not sure what I mean by those astrological pointers let me ‘translate’ them for you, and let’s explore together, customized to and guided by your purrrsonal chart.
To show you and set the tone for the area and those themes of your life that receive a boost for creativity, co-creation, and re-creation. 

We can do that in a focused mini session, or as part of an update / cosmic tune-up, during Client Appreciation Month of August, or even before, if you like!

 

Here is the Fiery LEO NEW MOON Chart

On the West Coast, the LEO NEW MOON will be exact at 2:46 am PDT.

LEO NM 2017

What’s with ALL this Fiery Energy?

Not ‘just’ the early LEO NEW MOON with MARS… Also:

  • MERCURY / North Node end of LEO – on the ‘Sphinx Point’ where the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on Aug 21 will be:
    Self Awareness is so important... not ‘just’ these days (but pointed to with the Lunar North Node and MERCURY.
    What does that mean? How can we best be with / in this?
    Practically speaking:
    Who am I, how do I work best, and what works and is healthy for me? When I come from a loving and strong place (LEO) I have a lot of energy to ‘do the work’. Creativity as a combination of playfulness (LEO) and skillfulness (VIRGO). MERCURY will go into VIRGO on July 25 – see below.
    And spiritually speaking:
    Who ARE YOU? What is the SELF? An invitation for deep spiritual inquiry…
  • A GRAND FIRE TRINE has been building (and is loosening after the NEW MOON), between:
    MERCURY / NN end of LEO,  LILITH / SATURN retro end of SAG, and URANUS stationary end of ARIES!
    Can you see it in the chart?
    A spiritual ‘golden opportunity’, to ride the ever accelerating wave of high vibrational, liberating, shifting and awakening energy that frees us FROM the ‘box’, even 3-D / 4-D consensus reality (URANUS in ARIES) and FOR – who knows what shows up – in the NOW!
    Who are YOU in and as THIS? Self / Spirit Awareness…
    And with LILITH close to SATURN retro late SAG (approaching the ever elusive ‘Galactic Centre’ again): Ultimates can’t be taught or talked about yet pointed to. Something deeply knows. 
  • And then, there are several squares (fiery, MARS ruled aspects that build up a lot of tension and conflict, and need dynamic outlets):
    We’re just coming out of the multiple square from MARS and the SUN, today (July 22) also the MOON – as they’ve all been in late CANCER – to URANUS in late ARIES: 
    How to reconcile the need to be safe (CAN) with the liberating push (AR) to try out something completely new, adventurous, liberating, to re-invent yourself?
    It has been good with the CAN energy to be gentle and (self) caring, in the crazy acceleration and bombardment with stimuli.
  • The fiery URANIAN impulse (like an volcanic eruption, or a flash of lightning) is coming in stronger now, as URANUS is going into ‘U-turn’ at the very end of ARIES, to go on its yearly retro trip, from Aug 2 – Jan 3. Mid-July to mid-Aug are very URANIAN weeks:
    There may be more ‘crazy news’, and things can shift in a heartbeat, or the blink of an eye. Live NOW, not in the past or future. Allow for inspiration in the moment, paradigm shifts, and liberation.
    Motto:  Experimentation, no expectation! And: WAKE UP! 
  • Lastly (for now) another by nature fiery (but not AS fiery) square is coming in, from JUPITER in mid-LIBRA to PLUTO retro in mid-CAP (exact on Aug 4). This is the 3rd of 3 exact squares (Nov 24, 2016, March 30 and Aug 4, 2017):
    A pressure to make wise choices, esp. in relationships of all kinds, so that they serve the best purpose. Forget about going into old conditioned (even ancestral) patterns of ‘shoulds’, of taking too much on and feeling resentful, or like wasting your time (heaaaavy CAP energy needs to be purged), or being ‘too nice’ and accommodating while things are actually imbalanced – LIBRAN themes get a JUPITERIAN magnifying glass this year.
    What ARE good soul (PLUTO) synergies (LI) that enhance life (JUPITER) and bring out your best, mature qualities (CAP)?
    Let’s choose wisely! And save a lot of time and energy…
    Well, and some ‘soul relationships’ (PLUTO square JUPITER in LI) that we may or may not have consciously chosen are occasionally quite ‘uncomfortable’ when they purge and ‘burn off’ the egos…. All part of the game…

    There’s a LOT to this, on personal, interpersonal, and collective levels…, now brought up and transformed.

Blessings for a Heart-full LEO New Moon cycle!

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?!

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

6 Jul

There’s a lot to the upcoming CAP – CAN Full Moon – exact on Saturday July 8 at 9:07 pm PDT!

Yet, it can be summed up in simple ways (CAP likes that!) – Guru Purnima leads the way!

The Full Moon comes with Sirius the ‘Dog Star’ / Scorcher (which is presently at 14°19′ CAN), next to the SUN / MARS, and with Vega the ‘Harp Star’ (which is presently at 15°34′ CAP), next to the MOON / PLUTO.
Two major Fixed Stars – with beautiful yet also dramatic ‘star love lore’ are involved in the already Full Moon ‘Power House’.
And: the Full Moon axis is squared by super-charger JUPITER.

Here is the Sirius / Vega enhanced Full Moon Chart – whoaaa!

CAP - CAN FM 2017 Sirius Vega

 

Here on the West Coast, the Full Moon will be exact at Moonrise / Sunset!

Clearly, this Full Moon gets our attention, and has us process lots of inner, old, ancestral, ancient ‘stuff’ (PLUTO next to the MOON in CAP).

 

Pluto Heart

Pluto Reveals… One of the first pictures New Horizons transmitted from the close fly-by in July 201

 

And it’ll be also in the centre of CAN – CAP (which has a ‘fixed’ SCO – TAU ‘undertone’ – the ‘axis of the Buddha’.

A friend sent me a Ram Das article today – so synchronistic.

Here ‘s a related one that’s even more pertinent. RD nails it. SO apropos full-ON CAP Moon with Pluto:

  • What’s our job when people ‘are difficult’?
  • How do our emotions and needs (like for them to love and appreciate us) have power over us, pull you into the drama and out of equanimity?
  • What needs to deepen to change this?
  • A heavy curriculum… (a la CAP)… yet lightened and transformed in the Heart.

I get it, and have been there with family and other ‘karmic partners’…

This Full Moon also helps us connect with ‘Ancient Essence’ – the essence of the Ancestors (PLUTO in CAP with the MOON). Biological Ancestors, ancient Teachers, Ancestors of the Land…
Maybe their Spirit is speaking to us…

 

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

Ganesha

Ganesh is being invoked at the onset of a journey.

We could all use some Ganesh energy nowadays / -years…
SATURN (ruler of the Full Moon sign CAP) is presently in SAG (Sept 2015 – Winter Solstice 2017) where karmic challenges for ‘the journey’ / the path arise – only to teach us what our inner blocks and old beliefs are…

Dense stuff, perhaps. Heavy curriculum?
May the Inner Teacher and light bringer show the way!

 

 


OM_concentric
“Ohhh, I don’t have a Guru, nor do I want one!” is what one might hear from us Westerners…

GU-RU means ‘simply’ “From Darkness to Light” – one who removes darkness and brings light. 

“Guru Purnima is celebrated on the day of the year when the Sun is closest to the Earth and the Full Moon reflects the brightest light. It is a holy day, and an especially beneficial time to make fresh resolves for spiritual growth.

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

Through sadhana (spiritual practice) and by following the Guru’s teachings, devotees can purify the mind to reflect the Atman, just as the Moon reflects the brightness of the Sun.

Traditionally, Guru Purnima is an auspicious time to begin four months of spiritual practice. Beginning at this time allows us to make great spiritual progress more quickly.”

 

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

Time (ruled by CAP) in fact can be suspended, stretched, and can dissolve and ‘disappear’ in immersion with what IS  (PLUTO points us to ‘that’). The guru is a bridge into vastness, spaciousness, and freedom.

 

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

 

Jupiter & Earth

Presently, JUPITER is in mid LIBRA, T-squaring the Full Moon axis(!):

As mentioned above:
What ‘kicks us out of balance’ (esp. in relationships with loved ones and not-so-loved ones)?
What’s the emotional charge – CAN – and what’s the need for acknowledgment, control that turns into judgment – CAP – ?
What brings us into inner Peace, regardless?

How about developing a good relationship (LIBRA) with spiritual practice?
Once we SEE the benefits (JUPITER) it’s clearly a wise choice (LI).

 

Saturn & Earth

SATURN is also very potent at this Guru Puja time, since it is now almost stationary (during August), and will go from retro (since Apr 6) to direct / forward on Aug 25.

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

 

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

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

 

Aummmm! Namaste!

The Light in me honours the Light in you!

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.

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

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our small, intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

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

 

 

VENUS in GEMINI x MERCURY in LEO = Summer De-Light!

6 Jul

Double De-Light-ful News:

Charming VENUS (presently ‘Morning Star’, rising before the SUN) just entered GEMINI on July 4 – to breeze like a gorgeous butterfly through the airy Alchemist energy until July 31.

Have you noticed too? So many really attractive things to learn and talk about, these days!
I found a few cool podcasts, been digging into my books, and found a few good Summer reads, discovered treasures among my Astro course material – and just offered two exciting new ones (both with online participation option):
Astro Archetypes Summer Immersion – with Archetypes Pairs! 🙂 – starting July 25.
Jupiter Journaling Journey– starting Aug 2.

And then, the languages… delighting in speaking / writing French these days, juste un peu… and talking German with family…

GEMINI is the Alchemist of the Zodiac – bridging polarities and dualities.
And the shortest bridge between people can me just a smile and a kind word 🙂

If YOU have GEMINI in your chart (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets), enjoy being a magnet this month, like a flower to butterflies!
So much to learn from nature and people… and they can learn from you.
Also, it’s a nice time for writing, in loving, relational ways (VENUS).
And for those Summer reads…

 

2 major ‘dance encounters’ for VENUS in GEM:

On July 17, VENUS will go into square with NEPTUNE (‘her higher octave) in PISCES (where VENUS is exalted – ONE Love!):
Taking the GEM interests and learning to a sublime, unifying level. Asking deep ‘unanswerable’ questions that take us to the ONE.

On July 18, VENUS will go into a de-light-full trine with JUPITER in ‘her’ LIBRAN world: 
Making wise choices that really speak to the Heart. Seeing the mirror effect with partners-in-Life (on all levels). Communicating with open-hearted curiosity.

Bright Discovery – Photo by Melanie, July 2017

 

Speaking of GEMINI – its ruling planet MERCURY, the Alchemist Archetype, a.k.a. Mind Mentor, a.k.a. Trickster, just moved yesterday July 5 out of the cozy Cancer zone, into radiant LEO – noticing a shift?

Show your colours (HA, just in time for Pride week!), and speak in a confident, creative, expressive, passionate, colourful way too!
Be the Heart-ist!
Say it from the Heart, be warm and generous, and HAVE FUN!

 

2 major MERCURY grooves too, creating a Grand Fire Trine:

On July 17, MERCURY in LEO will go into Fire Trine with SATURN in SAG.
On July 24,
MERCURY will go into Fire Trine with (it’s ‘higher octave’) URANUS in AR.

Acknowledging ‘reality check’ (choose your journey well, and, above all: know where you COME from) leads to freedom to be YOU!

 

MERCURY will be in LEO until July 25, to move into VIRGO – but come BACK to LEO (yes, yes, because it’ll go retro, Aug 12 – Sept 5!) Aug 31 – Sept 9!
Lots of creative passion to discover this Summer!

SUN / MARS SIRIUS Days! Into the CAP – CAN Full Moon…

5 Jul

SUN / MARS SIRIUS Days!
Did you know that from Earth perspective early July every year the SUN in mid CANCER lines up with SIRIUS, the beautiful bright ‘Dog Star’?

As every year, the SUN meets SIRIUS (‘located’ between 14 and 15° CAN) round July 5 – 7. This year, MARS in (now later) CANCER is close-by too!

Interesting that Canada, the U.S., and France all celebrate their ‘birthdays’ nowadays… July 1, 4, and 14.
Liberation is an important theme with SIRIUS.

Wishing us all Sirian downloads for deep liberation from old conditionings and restrictions that don’t serve us anymore!

SIRIUS is such a majestic blue / multicoloured star…!

Some of us had the privilege to view SIRIUS via my friend Stephen’s telescope, last January, when it was visible in the night sky. Quite the download and connection for me.

Sirius

 

Presently, SIRIUS is from Earth perspective next to the SUN / invisible in the sky which Ancient Egyptians considered the ’70 days in the Underworld’.

As the SUN ‘moves’ further in the Zodiac, from CANCER to mid-LEO, SIRIUS will rise again in the morning before Sunrise, calculated for 08 / 08 – the time of the Egyptian New Year, with the flooding of the Nile.
We’re also in the SIRIUS ‘Dog Days of Summer’ between now and then…

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

 

The SUN / MARS / SIRIUS conjunction will be also a signature of the upcoming CAP – CAN Full Moon, on July 8 – what a ‘Powerhouse’! The MOON with PLUTO and Vega, and the SUN with MARS and Sirius!

Here’s a preview of the chart – blog post to follow!

HH the 14th Dalai Lama will have his 81st birthday tomorrow, July 6!

Dalai Lama

HH the 14th Dalai Lama

Here is a beautiful quote by H.H. that a friend of mine who is a dedicated Buddhist practitioner sent me years ago – big gratitude, dear Heather!

Also very apropos the upcoming CAP – CAN ‘Powerhouse’ Full Moon on July 8, in a simple and profound way:

Never give up

No matter what is going on
Never give up. Develop the heart.

Too much energy in your country
Is developing the mind
Instead of the heart.

Develop the heart.
Be compassionate.
Work for peace
In your heart and in the world.

Work for peace.
And I say again:
Never give up.

No matter what is happening,
No matter what is going on
Around you,
Never give up.

HH the XIV Dalai Lama

 

Blessings for the SIRIUS Initiation into Liberation!
