MARS in AQ (March 30 – May 12) – Light Warriors in Action: Freedom for ALL.

30 Mar

Dear Friend in the Cosmic CommUnity,

Mars (Hubble Space Telescope)

Today’s the day:
MARS just moved into AQ!

…and coming out of CAP where ‘He’s’ exalted (strongest in the Zodiac – phew, did it ever show!).
MARS has plowed through CAP since Feb 16, instigating lots of global govern-mental & executive action and re-action (‘War on Virus’), and massively mobilizing / ramping up and exhausting esp. medical resources & infrastructure, esp. round the time when MARS ‘activated’ (to put it mildly) JUPITER & PLUTO (March 20 / 22), which led into the New MOON in ARIES on March 24 – ruled by MARS: Are we in a whole New Life now?!

In the meantime, SATURN moved into AQ on March 21 (temporarily for now, until July 1). A test for Humanity.
Ringed SATURN is the locker-downer, and deals with the currency of fear, security, law & order – all of which is affecting Humanity (AQ) in sooo many respects now.
SATURN has been the leading Archetype of this whole scenario – as it rules CAP where the concentration of Planets happened big time over the last month (initiated by the SATURN – PLUTO conj. on Jan 12), with SATURN – PLUTO – JUPITER – MARS, and also since SATURN is since Jan 12. And SATURN has been literally ahead of all the other Planets (JUPITER, PLUTO, MARS).

 

But: MARS is on the heels of SATURN now, and entered AQ too – today! – to meet & pass SATURN tomorrow March 31.

In this article are great sky maps of their union – with JUPITER nearby (PLUTO is right next to JUPITER too but not visible with the naked eye).
And it also shows the JUPITER – SATURN union on Dec 21, 2020 – at the point in the Zodiac where MARS meets SATURN tomorrow (1º AQ).

What’s the astrological message of the heavens, with such exceptional alignments?

The bigger backdrop is SATURN – PLUTO (“Let the Old Empire expire!”) – activated by the Lunar Eclipse on Jan 10.
I’ve written about it over the last 2 years.

Externalized / institutionalized top-down Power & Authority comes to a big crescendo while true Human Power & Authority are rebuilding from the inside-out in all of us intrinsically (CAP), and as we come together (AQ) in Community & in Humanity.
The new 20-year socio-political-economic JUPITER – SATURN cycle starting with their alignment 1º AQ on Winter Solstice
(9 months from now!) will initiate a new phase for Humanity.

AQ post-CAP is presently (until July 1) tightened-up by Cosmic Coach SATURN which gives us lessons and shows us cause-effect scenarios esp. related to fear & control (don’t wait until the “hindsight is 2020” effect!).

And that’s where MARS comes in – literally.
Warrior Archetype MARS enters AQ today to pass SATURN tomorrow.
Light Leaders & Light Warriors are showing up and coming forward now, activating our Humanity.
It’s not a war against anything and anybody, but an activation to liberate us from fear & ignorance.
AQ likes & brings crystal clarity, and MARS is fierce….
Stirring up Humanity to collaborate and co-innovate – since we’re ready for breakthroughs – NOW. 

 

 

What does MARS in AQ mean for the AQ sides in us (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets, Nodes)?

Well, they get an energy boost, to be even more Aquarian, in terms of being the Light Warriors, and co-pursuing Freedom for ALL. We have to come out as the liberated ones, and come together.
DO it, says MARS in AQ, as the energy is available now and it’s super timely.

More about your personal MARS in AQ effects below.

 

 

What’s the Itinerary for MARS in AQ 2020?


…and the Cosmic Activation it brings into the mix / Astro Weather, as it contacts other Planets
?

Rule of thumb, re the dates given below:
The energy is active / available in the whole week around the dates when it climaxes. The build-up time is usually stronger than the outflow phase.

 

MARCH 30
MARS enters AQ.
Light Warriors in Action: Freedom for ALL.
It takes a village / team / humanity to collaborate.
All things CO- rock.
Big drive to come together in Like-Spirited / Light-Spirited Community (and yes, technology helps).
Experts (scientific and otherwise experienced) are showing up.
New & ‘unusual’ forward-thinking voices need to be heard – equally
(beyond CAP hierarchy).

 

MARCH 31
MARS having just entered AQ meets & passes SATURN.
Pushing boundaries. Moving outside of the matrix & consensus reality ‘ring’.
Beyond old blocks, obstacles, fears, and patriarchal / hierarchical control, there’s Freedom.

 

APR 7 – Day of the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon
MARS in AQ (ruled by URANUS) squares (a MARS aspect) URANUS in TAU.
Upsets? Social unrest? Revolutionary breakthroughs?
How can we emBody Freedom, and come together in CommUnity?

 

APR 8 – 10
MARS in AQ in sextile with CHIRON & LILITH in ARIES
(ruled by MARS).
Freedom in action. Moving forward together, in our authentic, unconditioned, ‘wild’ and free way.
Don’t be the sheep / sacrificial lamb – be the Ram.
Healing happens when we show up.

 

APR 15 / 16
The waning MOON in AQ meets MARS.
Primo days for congregating with your like-minded / light-hearted Spirit Family and getting something started together.

 

APR 18
MERCURY in ARIES sextiles MARS in AQ.
Be bold. Speak out. Inspire a-new.
Your circles and Humanity needs to have this discussion.

What are your questions? What’s your message NOW?

 

MAY 11 – just 10 hrs before MERCURY enters GEM, and 1 day before MARS enters PISCES
MERCURY at the end of TAU squares MARS at the end of AQ.
What does Nature say to Humanity?
How do you as a Human Being talk to Nature?

 

MAY 12
MARS enters PISCES – and surfs in the Cosmic Waters of Oneness until June 27.
Could be still a contagious confusion ‘soup’ – yet the Warrior of Love releases toxicity, connects the dots, and connects in the ONE.

 

 

MOON – MARS Contacts

Besides the Martian activation / inter-action with other Planets, we’ll also feel (maybe even more personally) the weekly dynamics between the MOON and MARS – whenever the MOON makes a sharp aspect angle from a FIXED sign (TAU – LEO – SCO – AQ) to MARS in AQ, either via conjunction, square, or opposition.
A good time to stay firm, yet don’t get attached to any agenda.
The Wesak Moon of the Buddha (May 7) in SCO – TAU, widely t-squared by MARS falls into this MARS in AQ period.
It actually concludes the dynamic MOON – MARS contacts.
How does the inner Spiritual Teacher guide us to / with the Inner Light to ultimate Freedom?

Here are the MOON – MARS dates – mark your calendar:

APR 2 
Waxing MOON in LEO opposing MARS

APR 9 – Passover begins / Holy Week before Easter
Post-Full MOON in SCO squaring MARS

APR 15 / 16
Waning MOON in AQ meeting MARS

APR 23 – Day after the Earth Day New Moon / Ramadan begins
New MOON in TAU squaring MARS

APR 30
Waxing MOON in LEO squaring MARS

MAY 7 – Wesak Buddha Full Moon
Full Wesak MOON in SCO squaring MARS

 

 

Where is MARS’s Liberating Boost in AQ Happening in Your Chart & Life?

As you read this maybe you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in AQ? Then there’s more to MARS’s visit in AQ, since ‘He’ also activates your AQ Archetypes. They get a boost of energy – to show up and help free Humanity.   

And for all of us, whichever House/s AQ inhabits in our birth charts is the liberation realm – the corresponding area of Life is about Freedom for ALL.
Which can also be about turning conflict into freedom & co-innovation!

1st House

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS – All ONLINE at this Time

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 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!    

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?
Come over / let’s meet online, for your private Astro session!

ARIES New MOON (March 24) with CHIRON & LILITH – Show up with the Medicine of Spring!

24 Mar

Dear Cosmic Friends,

Blossoming Aliveness – Photo by Melanie, March 2020

 

Spring is here (Day 4 it is) – and Nature is fiercely alive!
Continued Spring Equinox Blessings!

Here’s my Equinox blog post again for you.

Well, what a fierce time it’s been for Humanity also, in the last few weeks!
Hope you’re not in emergency / survival mode (one of the low vibrations of the PISCES – ARIES cusp: “Am I making it, or am I going under?”) but blessed to be well, and ready to let something new and alive emerge – just as Nature does, on-goingly, especially NOW.

And if you or your loved ones are affected by the virus I’m sending heartfelt blessings for a good regeneration of body, mind, spirit, and emotions to you!

Yes, it can be super stressful to even ‘just’ get caught in the Corona scare through the exposure in all the media, but hey, that vibration doesn’t help the immune system.
Better to be directly in healthy self preservation says ARIES, and in responsible mode with each other and in society, since we’re all inter-dependent, says SATURN now freshly in AQ – also catalyzed by the ARIES New Moon.

It IS a new LIFE, for the time being. Let’s show up in our Best!

 

What a Powerhouse of a shift, after, and still influenced by, the heavy duty end of CAP concentration, where MARS, the ruler of ARIES, crossed JUPITER & PLUTO just in the last days, March 20 – 22.
Manifested as governments (CAP) around the globe pulled together the countries’ resources (CAP) and exerted their power (PLUTO) to declare States of Emergency and Disaster, act (MARS) in unprecedented ways, by installing massive (JUPITER) restrictive regulations re: freedom of movement, gatherings and socializing of people – SO apropos SATURN now freshly in AQ, to protect everyone (esp. of course the Elders and vulnerable people) from the Corona virus.

Really unheard-of what’s going on around the world, and how virtually everyone’s daily life in affected countries is impacted.
Wondering whether ‘normal life’ and Society will ever be the same, after going through this…
Well, maybe societies need a full-on transformation and rebuilding.
In any case, the crisis is an opportunity to reinvent community, as we need to stay connected in innovative ways.


One day and moment at a time, says ARIES.
Every day a new situation.
Just deal with what’s present NOW.
LIFE is NOW.

 

So, it’s a super rare CHIRON & LILITH Equinox New Moon!
Yes, the health emergency is spreading like wildfire (CHIRON / LILITH in early ARIES).
As this is happening let’s be present with it, and send our loving blessings to all affected patients and their families, all health care workers and other social heroes!!!

Yet, at the same time it’s important for us not to get infected by the overall primal survival mode responses / reactions (also an ARIES phenomenon – fight or flight mode), influenza’d by the media bombardment – which weakens our own immune system and doesn’t help anybody.

What would be another, helpful vibration this energy combo can be experienced as?

 

Chestnut Re-Emergence – photo by Melanie, March 2020

Shamanic CHIRON & Wild LILITH are here for us in this.

We can learn so much from wild Nature – when we’re IN it, witnessing and being blessed by her re-Emergence (ARIES).
What a resilience to show up again, after the cold of Winter!
It’s a whole interconnected (AQ) system / network that comes alive now.

Well, doesn’t have to be wilderness, can be a deep connection with a tree or other plant, its life force and spirit.
Even with our house / balcony plants 🙂

It takes us to our own vital existence, and our connectedness in the Web of Life (AQ – PISCES). She’s such a good Medicine for us, bringing Healing on all levels, always, and esp. in times like these.

I’ve found it so helpful for body and spirit to be in Nature – responsibly of course – over the last time, and am in immense gratitude for this gift.
Let’s take her ‘Wild Medicine’ (CHIRON – LILITH).
And show up with the fresh & vibrant Spirit of Spring!

 

Voila – here is the 

‘Birth Chart’ of the ARIES New MOON with CHIRON & LILITH

The New Moon will be exactly at 2:28 am PDT, today March 24.
Hopefully, you’re in restful, regenerative sleep at that time!

 

As you see in the chart, the first New Moon in SPRING – at 4º12′ ARIES – will ‘birth’ & activate  CHIRON & LILITH nearby (only 1-2 degrees away (they were exactly united on March 4 – every 10 years only).
The SUN will meet CHIRON & LILITH on March 25 / 26.

So yes, now it’s here: We’re in a whole new situation. Raw & wild.
Let’s not go ‘rogue’ and into survival / full-on emergency mode with it (which is a possibility to experience this) but let something new and wild and healing in us emerge and come to Life!

The LILITH theme has evolved in my life – esp since PLUTO opposed my LILITH.
‘She’ is now for me pointing us to Be in our Original Nature, which is always ‘wild’ and unconditioned.
LILITH is now, since Jan 27, in ARIES – calling us to show up in our True Nature,
in the moment, being here, being authentic and raw. Letting Life show up in and through us.

And CHIRON now also since more than a year fully in ARIES shows how a new situation can make us vulnerable (even bring up prior / early wounds). Yet also: The Medicine emerges with being direct and authentically ourselves. It’s our life. No fakeness, pretending, hiding. And what shows up in front of us is the Medicine. Goes both ways…


The ARIES New Moon pulls it together and brings it to the point.

It all starts here, and only happens here.
Spring – and Life! – only knows the NOW.

 

Another charged theme, catalyzed through the early ARIES New MOON is: 
It T-squares the Nodal Axis, i.o.w., forms a square to the South Node of the Moon(!) in early CAP and to the Lunar North Node in early CANCER. 
All of this is happening very close to the Spring Equinox (NM) – Summer Solstice (NN) – Winter Solstice (SN) Points.

As you prob know, the Nodes are being activated through Eclipses.

We had a ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse New Moon with the South Node in early CAP on Dec 25 / 26 – calling us to release excessive / exhausted CAP energies.
Hmmm, all that Boxing Day craze as an excessive expression of how materialism & capitalism has completely hijacked the Spirit of Solstice & Christmas. This is ending now.

The Old Empire expires, as I keep saying…

And we’ll have a ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse New Moon with the North Node on June 21 – exactly on Summer Solstice (b.t.w. exactly over China) on the cusp from CANCER back to GEMINI (which I call the ‘Nesting Point’.
Well, here we go, Humanity is ordered – CAP – to stay in their safe nest.

The ARIES New Moon today is exactly in-between the Lunar Nodes.
So yes, as the old production machine of the World as we know it (SN in CAP) is probably not just at a temporary stand-still but undergoing a big transformation, we’re at home, and showing up a-New, day to day, as we’re co-reinventing community.
And we really need to watch not to get isolated, and check in on each other, esp. the Elders – connectedness matters, says also SATURN freshly in AQ.

 

I penciled a few other Astro shifts & happenings on the outside of the chart.
The most striking ones are, in timely order of appearance:

 

  • MARS will enter AQ, and immediately meet & pass SATURN (March 30 / 31), and square URANUS (Ruler of AQ) in TAU (Apr 6).
    Pro-active CoInnovation in Community.
    Social unrest and conflict? Issues round society & economy?
    With MARS, another Planet
    (after SATURN) enters an AIR sign – after several weeks without AIR activation.
    Well, literally respiratory issues have been MAJOR. I called it initially a ‘somewhat suffocating’ / claustrophobic situation… 

    A fresh breeze will blow through the system. I suspect also into the communication / news scene.
    More about MARS in AQ in a separate ASTRO~News blog post in the next few days.

 

  • MERCURY in PISCES will meet NEPTUNE (Apr 3).
    Rather than being still / again completely mentally-emotionally overwhelmed & confused, which is a possibility:  
    Connecting and communing – there’s only ONE of us here….!
    Also a beautiful energy for a retreat from the mental realm, meditation, connection with Nature.

 

  • VENUS enters GEMINI (Apr 3 – until Aug 7! Since ‘she’ll go retro May 12 – June 24).
    Springy / Summery De-Light and REturn of the Goddess?
    VENUS adds to the activation of the AIR Element – after SATURN and MARS – ahhh!
    More about VENUS in GEMINI in separate ASTRO~News blog post in the next while.

 

 

Now, lastly, let’s see what the 

Sabian Symbol for the New Moon 

wants to show us.
The New MOON will be at 4º 12′ ARIES.

5º ARIES:

Morpho Rhetenor Butterfly

“A TRIANGLE WITH WINGS.

KEYNOTE: The capacity for self-transcending.

This is the symbol of the desire to reach a higher level of existence, of pure aspiration or devotion, of bhakti.
What has emerged in the first phase of the process of differentiation is becoming aware of the possibility of further up-reachings. The principle of “levitation” is seen as one of the two essential factors in evolution. The emergent being glorifies and deifies it, but it is still only an ideal. At this stage, nevertheless, the whole being experiences a childlike longing for its eventual realization.

At this point the last and synthesizing stage of the first five-fold unit in the cyclic process is reached.
A New Dimension of Being is envisioned, mobilizing creative endeavors.”

 

Wonderful!
Taking the fresh ARIES Emergence Energy into the on-going aspiration and possibility of Self Transcendence.
Our childlike innocence (ARIES) is our best ally – and points us right to our ‘Wild’ True Nature that’s the Medicine (CHIRON / LILITH together with the New MOON) from which original creativity comes.

In my spontaneous nature walks I tap into this beautiful creative presence and aliveness, and the photos are an expression of it.
Hope you find your access & outlet too!

 

Loving Blessings for the fresh ARIES New Moon – helping you with birthing your New & True YOU!

Melanie

SATURN in AQ (started March 21): We the People! Preserving Freedom in the Face of F.E.A.R.

23 Mar

Dear Cosmic Friends in Our Humanity!

WE are the People.
ALL of us matter – equally.
We all breathe the same AIR.

Time for Social & Societal Responsibility in an Interdependent World.

 

Time to step fully into & show up with our Freedom – despite….
yes, SATURN presents challenges which turn into stepping stones.

Especially – one of SATURN’s all-time fave TT (Teaching Tools): F.E.A.R.
Which typically leads to disproportionate responses / reactions.
That’s also where SATURN’s simple  / simplicity motto comes in:
Less is More.

Easier said than done…!?
Well, that’s SATURNian too – since it takes resolve, consistent practice, and resilience – SATURN is the Cosmic Coach after all.

In the AQ World that translates into: Societal Fears evoked and sanctioned by science(?) and otherwise perceived authority.

With SATURN now freshly in AQ:
Where’s / what’s Freedom in the face of F.E.A.R.?

When fear strikes (well, can be used for so many primal emotions and obsessive thoughts) – ask yourself:

Is this… true?
How do I know it’s true?
Who would I be without this ‘truth’?
Who’s the True Me?

Let’s use all our tools to transform F.E.A.R. into L*O*V*E 
Perfect Times for This. We got This!

 

Let’s glean cosmic insights, astro-archetypal evidence, and come from a curious & detached perspective.

Is this the end of Society as we know it?
As it goes with AQ – the discussion has only just begun, and all of our bright & free / forward / out of the box thinking m
inds from a broad spectrum of Humanity (AQ), grounded in maturity and responsibility (CAP, where SATURN’s been in the last 2+ years) need to come together to preserve and live in Freedom (SATURN in AQ), as we co-innovate Community and perhaps even Society.

 

SATURN, the Archetype of the INNER ELDER / TEACHER / SAGE has just made a move, into AQ – for a testing / trial(!) time, March 21 – July 1, 2020, before ‘getting unfinished business’ at the end of CAP done in the Summer & Fall.


Then it’ll fully enter AQ on Dec 16
Then it’ll fully enter AQ on Dec 16 to be met by JUPITER on Dec 21(!).
Together, they’ll start a new 20-year socio-political-economical cycle at 1º AQ, based on social justice & community building.


The last one that started in May 2000 in TAU is ending this year – and we exhausted that one, as consumerism, materialism, capitalism & uber production with way too much waste has suffocated Mother Earth.

 

With SATURN in CAP since Dec 20, 2017 we were challenged to grow up, be more fully on purpose (in our own responsibility), and not waste anymore precious time and resources.
This year, as this period is ending it’s also a good time to take stock / do an inventory & review of Winter 2017 / 18 – Winter 2019 / 20:

  • How have you lived up to being in your integrity? Give yourself credit for showing up in it in scenarios that were challenging / a test and initiation / prototype to do it again in similar situations.
  • Have you simplified your life by saying NO to projects & people as needed, and are you good with the effects?
  • Have you put energy into what matters most to you?
  • How has this period (maybe through challenges you wouldn’t have ‘chosen’ but could see in hindsight what their purpose was) brought out your best?
  • What’s with respect for others as for yourself? Is there a reflection? P.S. you can’t change people, just yourself (hard enough that-is, ha-ha).
  • Have you been strengthening your Roots? Your own rootedness here on Planet Earth, in your body, and your connection with ancestral roots? Yep, and always good to eat root vegetables, and sit by a tree. I mean it.
  • How’s your connection with your biological and Spirit Elders – what has changed in the last 2 years?
  • How has your Inner Elder come out?


Checking in would make for a good project in the present home bound mode many of us find ourselves in – along with taking inventory of your physical environment, Yay to Spring clearing and re-organizing.
Which I find very therapeutic, and we’re in creative abundance / transformation mode rather than  in the recent partly artificial stressful scarcity / scare-city mode.

From this hopefully very GROUNDED & integral place we can move better into SATURN in AQ where bringing our Best to Community becomes super important.

 

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot card Man of CrystalsInventor

Inventory can lead to re-inventing. And co-innovating.
Which takes us to AQ.

Yes, here’s where the challenge and opportunity in this global virus scenario lays: A crisis can lead to Social Leaps (very apropos AQ).
Well, IF Humanity collaborates and co-innovates
(which we’re already doing – yet it becomes ever so important and timely), rather than repairing & attempting to recreate / reinstate the old / expired and dysfunctional model.


Ringed SATURN represents the obstacles and challenges that seem to prevent us from something, yet which the Human Spirit (esp. in AQ) can rise beyond, which starts with seeing them for what they really are.

AQ used to be ruled by SATURN (representing social order and status / one’s place in society) until URANUS was discovered in 1781 – right between the American (1776) and French (1789) Revolutions. Equality & Freedom for ALL!

The Awakener Archetype Planet URANUS made its initial appearance to Humanity at a time when the Human Spirit was liberating & revolutionizing societies.
It represents paradigm shifts, breakthroughs, breaking free from the (outer and inner) ‘Old Regime’, and Being FREE as a Human among all other Spiritual Beings in Embodied Form.

Ultimately, as spiritual teacher Krishnamurti said: Freedom without an opposite (otherwise it’s not true freedom!).

 

While SATURN  – presently ever so obviously – apparently restricts and brings obstacles to Aquarian Freedom, let’s bring another ancient & timeless paradigm shifter into the picture to make clear what we might not see:

Ganesha – Elephant headed Hindu god, known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ on the path, and Guru that takes us from the darkness (of not seeing what the obstacles is / was) to the Light.

Elephant headed Ganesh, known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles on the Path’ is buddies with SATURN, and can be invoked to bring the (actual) obstacles to the light, whatever they may be, and show a path to overcome or release them.


A friend from Germany wrote to me yesterday, saying,
“Nature would be so beautiful now, if there wasn’t the Dark Cloud hanging over everything.”

Sums up the societal atmosphere.
The dark invisible cloud – affecting humanity (very much apropos SATURN in airy AQ which rules clouds and vapours…):
The cloud of the virus, and even more so, the cloud of fear.


For starters – to come from a good foundation in socially responsible action:

Let’s unmask(!) debilitating / paralyzing / obsessive fear first.
It comes in so many disguises, and typically pretends to protect.

Humanity (AQ) is these weeks (months?) of uncertainty understandably gripped by fear. Yet, that’s SATURN’s low vibration, which is ironically / obviously negatively impacting our immune system – also a SATURN function.

Not only is ‘ordinary human life’ out of control / normal functioning.
Fear leads to separation (and vice versa – all SATURNian) – from one another, from the Universe, and from our strong vibrant core. The resulting vulnerable human state can be exploited and manipulated (e.g. into polarization and blame agendas, even demonizing ‘the other’, with the next level of a call for an externalized authority to ‘do something’).
Bottom line, when we’re in fear, isolation, and separation, we can be so much more easily controlled (externally and by internal ‘demons’).
SO important to check in in that regard, these isolating times.
While socializing is regulating our minds and emotions.
We’re social animals.

Not to say there shouldn’t be any protective measures from responsible governmental institutions.
Certainly YES to effective and intelligent / common sense protection of those people who are vulnerable – that’s what the social contract and our Humanity call from us.


Yet i.m.o. the governments shouldn’t overdo it in a way that an initially appropriate response turns into a massive ‘War on Virus’ ‘overkill’ operation (MARS – JUPITER – PLUTO in CAP – the activation culminated last weekend)
Plus: JUPITER will align 3 times with PLUTO end of CAP this year, already on Apr 4, again June 29 and Nov 12).
The BIG operation has the potential to cause more damage than good – to all of humanity and our social systems (AQ) if executive power (PLUTO in CAP) isn’t used wisely.

On a personal / human level (AQ) I’m thinking in terms of overdoing it of the scenario where now extensive numbers of people want to be COVID-19 tested. Again, important – but the purpose needs to be kept in perspective. Many if not most of the testees (SATURN) not because they have symptoms but out of fear – “to be on the safe side” – with the immediate effect of completely overwhelming the medical infrastructure (CAP) – leaving people stranded who’d really need it.
And hey, in case those peeps were tested ‘positive’ – assuming the effectiveness of the test (SATURN) – (do your research) – they’d have to self quarantine. If it was negative they needed to test again and again – until they’d be ‘positive’?
Back to the uncertainty.
A great example (w/o giving medical advice, just applying common sense and astro-archetypal reasoning) where i.m.o. SATURN’s motto Less is More comes in.
And where the ‘too much’ is primarily fear rather than facts based.
I’m also personally suspicious of the effects and even effectiveness (SATURN) of potential excessive mandatory testing (SATURN). Well – check it out yourself.

With this situation ‘evolving’ – a PLUTO thing – it’s super important now to stay in an empowered (PLUTO) / higher vibrational level.
Rather than giving all the authority to The Test and those in charge (SATURN – PLUTO), and I believe that’s also socially responsible.

The Golden Rule comes handy:
When it comes to contagiousness for vulnerable people – if you were vulnerable how would you like others to behave toward you? Do that. And if you are considering yourself vulnerable to infection please do what you need to to protect yourself, without panicking – stay grounded and feed yourself with joy and love and immune boosters!

Let the light of inner spiritual wisdom remove the obstacles – whichever they may be.
Jai Ganesh!

 

Anahata Yantra – Symbol for the Heart Chakra

Just felt called to consult with Louise Hay’s evergreen reference book Heal Your Body – now check this out! Hope it helps for awareness and prevention through transformation.

” Respiratory Ailments
Probable underlying theme: Fear of taking in Life fully.
Transformation / Affirmation: I am safe. I love my life.”

“Coughs
Probable underlying theme: A desire to bark at the world. See me! Listen to me!
Transformation / Affirmation: I am noticed and appreciated in the most positive ways. I am loved.”

“Influenza
Probable underlying theme: Response to mass negativity and beliefs. Fear. Belief in statistics(!).
Transformation / Affirmation: I am beyond group beliefs or the calendar. I’m free from all congestion and influence.”

 

Oh, and Lungs are related to the Heart Chakra.
Its Colour is Green. The Element is AIR. The Planet is VENUS.
Cultivating LOVE and being in the green lands of Nature is SO good for us.

That’s where also CHIRON & LILITH, together with the New Moon in ARIES tomorrow come in.
Wild Nature and our Inner Wild Nature is our Teacher & Healer.
Spring is Here! 

 

Springy Lands – woohoo, with a pink ray – Photo by Melanie March 2020

 

 

Voila, here is the Chart of SATURN entering AQUARIUS:

As you see, it’s quite a celestial concentration end of CAP into AQ, also in PISCES and early ARIES.

Only half of the Zodiac – from early CAP to early CAN is occupied / and the chart is sliced into occupied and empty parts of the Zodiac by the Nodal axis. And NO Planet is presently (until Apr 25) retro. Lots of momentum – in certain areas.

We’ve obviously experiencing a huge deal of that late CAP intensity of governmental / infrastructural impact.
Now, there’s a gradual trend out of CAP into AQ, initiated by SATURN, and followed by MARS (on March 30), passing SATURN on the 31st.
We could see social / societal movements, incl, erratic conflicts, as MARS in the sign of URANUS will square URANUS on Apr 7 – day of the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon. Let’s help funnel the energy into liberating outlets of energy.
SATURN will go into square with URANUS next year… we’re not quite there yet but precursors can show up in May when SATURN stations at almost 2º AQ – the furthest it goes this year:
A conflict between embodying Freedom and social / societal control / regulation / reglementation / responsibility.
And disruptive effects on the economy having dire / challenging consequences for society / humanity.

Sooo much PISCES energy we’ve been exposed to lately, incl. MERCURY retro (MERCURY super long & still in PI until Apr 10!), and SUN / NEPTUNE. Being overwhelmed, influenced / influeanza’d and feeling like going under, esp. media wise? Good to not get sucked in and brain washed, and do on-going ‘hygiene’ – on all levels, incl mental-emotional.

And then there’s the ARIES New Moon with CHIRON & LILITH coming up on March 24!
Taking the Medicine of Nature and our inner ‘wild’ authentic Nature. And show up always a-new, as Spring.

More about this in the next ASTRO~News blog post. Stay tuned.

 

URANUS Rules AQUARIUS Painting by Johfra Bosschart – Just as all the blossoms are now opening, we’re all equally growing toward the Light and infused by cosmic energy / Prana / Life Force.

An important motto for SATURN in AQ:
We the People…!


Yes, we’re all breathing the same AIR, receiving the same prana, and are in this together. Collaboration and co-innovation on all levels and across / beyond boundaries is now called for.

I don’t believe the crisis can be ultimately solved from the top-down (a la CAP) – that only goes so far, and is essentially of the old consciousness – but through collaboration of people in society (AQ).

Let’s keep our connections going – in co-creative & co-innovative AQ ways -, maybe via technology, psychic connection, distance walks.
‘Social distancing’ is so apropos SATURN in AQ – yet leading to random encounters with friends or ‘strangers’ (had a few of those in the park the other day, and it was delightful how the ‘ice broke’ and we talked rather than being all ‘zipped-up’).

And rather than just looking at / be flattened by the excessive media coverage about the symptom and ever more fear / panic responses let’s also investigate the systemic (very AQ) background.
Many voices need to be heard, even ‘far out’ / ‘crazy’ ones. True egalitarian collaboration gives everyone (beyond status, position, and hierarchy a la CAP) an equal chance for input.
SATURN will hold us accountable to be consistent with AQ principles.


Here’s a
hypothesis / question that popped up in my brain lab:
Is there a connection between the rolling out of 5G over the last months and the virus symptoms?
I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the recent / on-going massive 5G technology implementation affected the immune system of humans adversely. Are we / are those ‘in charge’ and the governments who are using their powers to not only roll out 5G but also super drastic measures to combat the virus missing the obvious?
It’s a scandal that 5G itself has NOT been tested for safety before installing it all over the World.

Well, and guess where the 5G ‘pilot roll-out’ has been strongest? China (apparently Wuhan was one of the first cities), South Korea, UK, Germany, the U.S. Check this article from Sept 2019(!). Could be mere coincidence…

And hey, crazy side-effect(?):
Now as so many people are home bound and restricted from work and socializing in public the only way to connect with others is via technology – hence, causing spikes in the usage of the networks, and likely a call for 5G to ‘handle it’.

Whether the hypothesis holds or not, we need to protect ourselves against the effects of wireless technology!

Esp since SATURN in AQ rules networks and technology. It’s ‘job’ is to heed warnings, and show cause & effect / consequences over time.
Less is More.

 

Dangers & Directions with SATURN in AQ


Dangers:

  • Systemic shut-down that’s hard to recover from.
  • Technocracy. Surveillance via giving data & authority to technology and to who’s behind it.
  • Societal control by an elite.
  • ‘Dark cloud’ over Humanity.
  • Fear of flying – literally and symbolically.
  • Restrictions of gatherings (social / communal, spiritual / religious, political) with devastating effects on the social fabric, and on basic human freedom.
  • Alienation and personal isolation, with mental health consequences.
  • Human Rights violations, esp. when it comes to Freedom.
  • Crisis can bring out the worst (lowest vibration) in Humanity.


Directions:

  • Freedom and intrinsic Authority in Humanity.
  • Pulling together in conscious group effort / collaboration / coordination of a diversity of faculties.
  • Not just social responsibilities in our circles of activity / influence, but societal responsibilities as citizens.
  • Community leaders and social influencers to show up and lead by example.
  • Light Leaders to step up and help Humanity to awaken.
  • Working with light & crystal energy.
  • Clearing attachments to the mental collective field.
  • Responsibly experimenting with free thinking alternatives.
  • Co-innovation.
  • Crisis can bring out our Best.

 

SATURN in AQ historically

SATURN has a 29-year cycle (approx one human generation), and hasn’t been in AQ since Feb 1991 – Jan 1994.
A time of huge societal changes and rebuilding, esp. after the Berlin / East German Wall came down, with a domino effect on Eastern European Communist regimes…

I was stunned to find out the other day that A. Huxley’s dystopian novel Brave New World was released in 1932(!) when SATURN had just entered AQ (and just before Hitler was put into power in Jan 1933). Huxley died in Nov 1963 – on the same DAY as JFK(!) – yes, when SATURN in its 29-year cycle had again just entered AQ (1962 – 1964).


History comes in patterns and offers lessons (both SATURN themes).
Only briefly here, for the ‘most recent’ SATURN in AQ phases / starts.
So much more could be said and explored – leaving that to your memory / investigation.

* March – Aug 1932, and Dec 1932 – Feb 1935
Check out the grim timeline of 1933, esp. Hitler’s and the Nazi’s gradual take-over in Germany and their societal polarization & manipulation, when SATURN was freshly in AQUARIUS (March – Aug 1932 and Dec 1932 – Feb 1935).
Well, and years of Depression followed in the 1930’s besides Nazi Totalitarianism / Tyranny.

* Jan 1962 – March 1964, and Sept – Dec 1964
Starting in 1962 with the extension of the U.S. embargo towards Cuba, and culminating in the Cuban Missile Crisis in Oct when the World held its breath – a wrong leadership (SATURN) decision could have been detrimental for all of Humanity (AQ). Also that year apropos AQ: Colonial Independence of Algeria, Rwanda, Burundi, Yemen, Malaysia, Jamaica, Trinidad. And Nelson Mandela was incarcerated. Well, and 1963, J.F. Kennedy was assassinated.

* Feb 1991 – Jan 1994
Overall SATURN challenge: Rebuilding of Eastern Europe (and Reunification of Germany), after the Berlin Wall fell & Eastern European Communism disintegrated (SATURN – URANUS – NEPTUNE in CAP 1989 – 1990).
The timeline of SATURN in AQ started in 1991 with the brutal Civil War in former Yugoslavia between Croats & Serbs.
Estonia, Latvia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldavia, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan all declare independence from the former Soviet Union. Communist Party activities are formally suspended, the Warsaw Pact is dissolved, and the Soviet Union seizes to exist.

There seems to be a common thread re:
Communism, Socialism, ‘National’ Socialism (as the Nazi party called itself) vs Freedom of the People.

Pls note that both the ‘People’s Republic’ of China (* Oct 1, 1949) and the U.S. A. (* July 4, 1776) have their MOONs in (early and late) AQ (hey, that’s also Lady Liberty…).

Protective / restrictive SATURN approaching it (first for China, 2020 / 21, then the U.S., 2022) doesn’t bode well for Freedom. Community Leadership is called for, and even System Changes are possible.

The U.S. are now also moving into their (249-year cycle) PLUTO Return (2020 – 2022 exact, has been building up).
Power – intensity – shadow – transformation – regeneration from the constitutional core is all I’m saying here…

 

SATURN in AQ in YOUR Chart…

…shows where YOU are called to be in community collaboration, rather than going into separation, which areas of life call you for that (relationships, career, creativity…),  and in which  other dynamics (Aspects to other Planets).

If you have SUN, MOON, AC, Nodes, or Planets in AQ, and for all of us, where CAP is in our charts, this is a 2 1/2-Year Initiation phase to cultivate social & societal responsibility – and freedom from within.
Your as Our Humanity Matters!

 

Are you in a SATURN Return ‘Generation’?

  • If you were born between Feb 1991 – Jan 1994 you’ll have your 1st SATURN RETURN (round age 28 – 30).
  • If you were born between Jan 1962 – March 1964, and Sept – Dec 1964, this will be your 2nd SATURN RETURN (round age 57 – 59).
  • And if you were born between March – Aug 1932, and Dec 1932 – Feb 1935 you’ll have your 3rd SATURN RETURN (round age 86 – 88).

Full Circle to be in your Natural Authority, and to show up in your best in community & society!
Could be (well, definitely) a good time to check in with trusted cosmic reference & guidance.

 

Take me up on my Cosmic Relief Offer for ASTRO Sessions in these times (below).
All now online of course.

Or come join the SATURN into AQ Online Parlour (2 groups) on Thu afternoon / eve – see below.

May the challenge bring out our Best!

Melanie

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 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!    

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?
Come over / let’s meet online, for your private Astro session!

 

And here’s my contribution for Cosmic Relief this challenging situation:

SPRING EQUINOX 2020 (March 19 / 20): Happy Astrological New Year! Happy New ARIES!

20 Mar

 

The Astrological New Year is here – as the SUN has just entered ARIES!

All starts HERE.
Always starts and happens here, in this moment.

Breathing IN.
Breathing OUT.
Taking in the Energy of Life.
Transforming Fear into L*O*V*E.

Being the Warrior of Love.
Showing UP for what shows up.
Life is NOW.

 

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 today Friday March 20 onward, the days are getting longer than the nights, as the Sun Light is getting stronger, 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.

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

It falls on the first Sunday (Apr 12) after the first Full Moon in Spring (Apr 7).


With the emergence of Spring, the Spirit of Newness is kicking in, as well as Healing through stepping forward, and showing up bravely-authentically in our ‘wild’ & original Nature….
… while the SUN, now freshly in ARIES, is about to energize & bring the Light of consciousness to CHIRON, the ‘Wounded Healer / Warrior Shaman (since last year in ARIES), and to ‘Wild Woman’ LILITH – this year (Jan 27 – Oct 21) also in ARIES, on March 26 & 27.

CHIRON & LILITH in early ARIES have been united this Feb / March
(only approx. every 10 years!), and were activated by VENUS last month (yes, fierce love is what’s still called for!), and will be even more powerfully met by the ARIES New MOON, followed by the solar infusion – all within 4 days, March 24 – 27.
Yet another level of newness, freshness, nowness!
Come Alive!

Yes, the epic’ ARIES NEW MOON on March 24 will be closely aligned with CHIRON / LILITH!
We’re in for a refreshing ‘game changer’- and a call for us to show up and step forward NOW – after the massive-passive Piscean (SUN, MERCURY retro, NEPTUNE) immersion / overwhelm, esp. via the media, announcements, regulations, pronunciations, and speculations, re: virus.
The energy is building and we feel it…


More about the ARIES NEW MOON in the upcoming Astro~News post dedicated specifically to it.

 

Here’s the Spring Equinox chart –
Setting the tone for the new Season

This year the SUN entered ARIES at 8:55 pm PDT yesterday March 19
March 20 in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia:

 

Just look at that close alignment of the SUN at 0°00′ ARIES – on the the ‘Emergence Point’ where Life Awakens and Arises – just barely behind CHIRON & LILITH at 5°02′ / 5°55′ AR!

 

At Spring Equinox, New Life emerges out of the PISCEAN unifying waters of Oneness – or, after this super intense PISCES season (Feb 18 – March 19, 2020), out of the overwhelming & drowning energies of everything connecting with everything – creating domino effects, dominated by the invisible that’s been spreading across physical borders.
With MERCURY retro (Feb 16 – March 9) mostly in PISCES, and a looong post-retro ‘storm’ until also yesterday March 19(!) plus a massive CAP alignment
(more about it below) the stressful socially pervasive scenario on the ‘Emergence Point’ has shown it can also turn into a ‘Survival Point’.
Rather than being in ‘survival mode’, can you tune into the Life Force that naturally energizes you – and is also an expression of your Inner Healer (CHIRON) and of your Inner ‘Wild Nature’ (LILITH)?!
What’s the Medicine that emerges authentically & originally out of YOU as a Living Breathing Being here-now?

 

New Life arises so unstoppably now in Nature.
Time for us humans also to rise again, into the freshness, newness and NOWness of Life!
So let’s bravely show up as we are, wherever we are.
For ourselves. For one another. For and as LIFE.

The SUN now freshly in ARIES will meet next week, right after the ARIES New Moon (March 24) CHIRON & LILITH (March 26 / 27) – Showing up a-NEW authentically / originally as we are (‘in our Wild Nature’) is the Medicine!
And ‘Wild’ Nature is so healing, and teaches us so much these days – I’m immensely grateful!  🌿♈️

The New MOON with CHIRON & LILITH early ARIES will be also in T-square with the Nodal Axis (South Node in early CAP where the Boxing Day ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Release Eclipse was – ha, prob. the last Boxing Day as we know it! -, North Node in early CAN):
Leading from (early CANCER – nesting, caring) loving care, home-ing, and Belonging, and releasing excesses of the old CAP-italist model: Let the Old Empire Expire (literally: breathe it out).  Care matters more than control.

…and URANUS now in early TAURUS cooperates, by kicking us out of old habits, stuckness, and attachments, to EmBody Freedom!
Out of the Old Paradigm. Into a New Way of Being!

 

MERCURY is now for a loooong time (Feb 3 – April 10) in PISCES.
Have you been able to “be in an open mind, flexibly-fluid, receive messages, not let things stick, and offer old mind-sets to be released.” (despite everything going on in the omni-present media ‘storm’! – very apropos M-r storm in PI)?
Well, PISCES is SO counter-intuitive / paradoxical. Going with the flow, yet not going with the ‘mainstream’ / the consensus reality but seeing Life as a Metaphor, being open to receive downloads from the multi-dimensional ‘field’, rather than taking things at ‘face value’ is the way to let-go (no, I don’t mean escaping or spiritually by-passing – a fine line when we’re overwhelmed. Open curiosity is the key).
Meta-morphing Mind has been the message of the Sabian Symbol of the degree where MERCURY stationed. 
Metaphoring is another theme I’m feeling called to add:
What if what happens was a dream, a symbolism for something? What’s the message?!

MERCURY will on April 3 unite with NEPTUNE  (didn’t quite ‘make it’ to NEPTUNE, before turning retro on Feb 16) and helps us with awareness about and letting go of old energy & mind forms that used to draw / pull / allure us in – almost in an intoxicating and addictive way – and perhaps allowed us to check out, be victimize-able and manipulation / numbing prone / overwhelmed by a cocktail of influences.
Very apropos releasing the shadow of the PISCES Age.
Now we can see those patterns more clearly (M-r Feb 16 – March 9 / 19 has hopefully showed us what’s usually under the radar!) – the first step to becoming FREE.
And compassion can be so much better expressed and shared from that place (rather than from ‘under water’).

 

Speaking of Retro:
NO Planet is presently retro – until April 25 when PLUTO goes retro end of CAP.
Sooo, things can move forward and manifest faster on the outer expression.
With the emphasis on ARIES (yes, also CAP / AQ – getting to that…).  
What’s New and Fresh, Here-NOW?
FREE to BE!

 

Plus, as you can see in the chart:
The massive alignment in late CAP, leading over to AQ – SATURN enters AQ tomorrow(!) March 21 – for a ‘trial phase’ until July 1, and fully from Dec 16 on, aligning with JUPITER for a new 20-year socio-economic cycle.

Sooo, all that CAP energy, exposing & expelling its shadow is on since last year (2019) when we had a CAP Solar Eclipse in January, followed by  SATURN, PLUTO, and the South Node aligning in Spring, the Ring of Fire Boxing Day Eclipse, and the CAN – CAP Partial Lunar Eclipse on Jan 10, 2020, leading to the epochal SATURN – PLUTO alignment on Jan 12: Birthing of a New Era, as the Old Empire Expires.
Check out this epic blog post from January – SO interesting now as we’re seeing the effects and integration.

 

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 the place to check in on:
How are we being treated by others, and do we treat other people, Nature, and ourselves…?
What old model have we been part of, and colluding with by default?

Apropos CAP themes: 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!
Apropos ARIES: Nature always shows up a-NEW.


The Earth doesn’t belong to us.
We belong to Mother Earth.

 

After the massive alignment in January, CAP gets now again ‘acutely’ activated via MARS – which meets JUPITER today March 20 and PLUTO on March 22.
From heavy lifting and taking a lot on (could be an ego thing) to working with what we’re best at / using our time and resources for the highest purpose, and letting Higher Power take the lead.

PLUTO is the catalyst to take us to Soul Power & Higher Power – always deeper than what appears to be powerful.
The Power of Life.

SATURN at the very end of CAP having passed PLUTO shows us:
On deep levels, the limited physical reality of our experience (SATURN) seems so solid (CAP) yet is an illusion / a ‘matrix’ if you will. We can shift out of old linear & limiting consciousness into freer ways of Being.
Consistently living (SATURN) from Soul Self / Essence (PLUTO) transforms old burdens, Karma, judgment, fears and limitations, and shows:
All Life is Sacred.
The Spiritual and the Material are ONE.
Which is also much better for sustainable Living and Building – the purified and elevated CAP, leading over to AQ.

 

SATURN going over the ‘Community Builder’ / ‘Light Leader’ Point from CAP to AQ on March 21, activated by MARS on March 31 can take it from there:
Mature and Enlightened Collaboration in Community and Humanity are important, since we’re all inter-dependent.


Stay tuned for the SATURN into AQ blog article!

Friday the 13th with VENUS-URANUS: Divine & Liberated Feminine Calling…

11 Mar

Dear Ones,

Let’s honour VENUS!


She shows up as a beautiful bright shining ‘Evening Star’ these weeks – preparing for Her retro Journey
(every 1 1/2 years) May 12 – June 24.
And She shows us something about Love & Liberte – as she united with URANUS on the eve of the last Full MOON in VIRGO – SuperPISCES, on March 8
(yes, Women’s Day that-is, yet every day is Women’s Day!)
The VENUS – URANUS pairing comes only once a year. 


With the union of VENUS
(March 4 – Apr 3) & URANUS (2019 – 2026) in TAURUS, the motto is:
EnJoy freely and without attachment – follow the body. Be surprised at what (or whom?) you fall in love with – could be Freedom itself! Freedom from, for, and without any attribute and ‘opposite’ / other.

 

And what does that have to do with Friday the 13th?, you may ask…

A LOT.
Since that’s a VENUS-MOON Day
(yes! Again it’s time to debunk the old superstition myth!), and it catalyzes all things VENUS & MOON. Basically all week, bridging over from VENUS – URANUS / Full MOON to Friday the 13th.

So here’s to liberation (URANUS) from repressive institutions:
Friday the 13th is not what the superstitious world (and Church fed conditioning) would want us to believe…
It is actually a VENUS / MOON Day – related to Goddess and the Divine Feminine.

This is the first Friday the 13th this year.
# 2 will be in November.

 

How do you hold Friday the 13th?

What’s your sense about its reputation as a ‘bad luck’ or even scary day?
What’s considered ‘scary’ might actually be sacred!

Birth of Venus Painting by S. Botticelli.

Did you know that the Norse Goddess Freya gave Friday its name?
She is the equivalent of 
VENUS / Aphrodite, Goddess of beauty, attraction, erotic pleasures, and art.

The Romans called the 6th day of the week ‘De Veneris’ (belonging to VENUS) which became Venerdi in Italian, Viernes in Spanish, and Vendredi in French.

So that’s the case for VENUS and Friday.

Here are the 7 days of the week and their associations with planets, Sun, and Moon:

SUNday

MOONday

MARSday (Mardi, Martedi) – Tuesday relates to Tyr / Tew (Norse good of war and law – equivalent of Mars)

MERCURYday (Mercredi, Miercoles)

JUPITERday (Jeudi, Jueves) – Thursday relates to Thor (Norse good of thunder – similar to Jupiter / Zeus)

VENUSday (Vendredi, Viernes) – Fridey relates to Freya

SATURNday

 

And now, what’s with the 13?

Uhh, there is a lot of story around vilifying the number 13… do your research.
The number 13 may have been purposely vilified by the founders of patriarchal religions in the early days of Western civilization because it represented Femininity.

Thirteen is said to have been revered in prehistoric Goddess-worshiping cultures because it corresponded to the number of lunar (menstrual) cycles in a year (13 x 28 = 364 days).

 

Moon Goddess

 

Zodiac years have 12 – 13 New Moons and / or Full Moons.
As the solar calendar triumphed over the lunar with the rise of male-dominated civilization, so did the “perfect” number 12 over the “imperfect” number 13.
Those who sowed the seeds of superstition must have been very afraid of the power of the Feminine…

The association of 13 with the Feminine and the lunar cycle is the MOON side of Friday the 13th.

Hence, we have a strong VENUS / MOON themed day.

…while tomorrow Thu and on Fri the MOON will be in SCORPIO – trad. the ‘most challenged’ lunar position (according to the dignity system, the MOON is in ‘Fall’ in SCO) – yet that’s another matrix. This is the lunar energy that gets us to the depth and core of our feelings – not to get stuck there in the dark, but to move through, and regenerate from within.
Change happens nature-ally – let it be IN and through US!

 

Let’s celebrate Friday the 13th – and beyond! – by honouring Mother Nature & Goddess Power, and let them take us through the darkness, where we find hidden treasures! 

 

With Nature-All Goddess Love,
Melanie

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 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!

VIRGO – Super PISCES Full Moon with NEPTUNE: Self-Aligning & Connectedness in the Flow of Life

7 Mar

Dear Cosmic Friend on Planet Earth,

Feeling the energy building?
Seen Her in Her waxing belly, these afternoons / evenings?
The VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon is coming, on MoOnday, March 9!

 

A friend of mine took this amazing photo of the strawberry colour Full Moon in Germany – some Moons ago 🙂


And She’s special in so many ways:

  • She’s the first SuperMOON of 3 in 2020.
  • She comes on the heels of the SUN / NEPTUNE conjunction in PISCES (once a year, on March 8).
  • And also on the heels of the VENUS / URANUS conjunction in TAURUS (once a year, on March 8).
  • MERCURY will go out of retro on the DAY of the Full Moon, March 9 – opening up another almost 7-week retro free time March 8 – Apr 25 when PLUTO goes retro.
  • She ushers in the next (one of two this year) Friday the 13th of March – Day of the Sacred Feminine!
  • She’s the last Full Moon in WINTER 2019 / 20 (after the CAN – CAP Partial Lunar Eclipse on Jan 10, and the LEO – AQ Full Moon on Feb 8 / 9) – the next Full Moon will be the first Spring FM, on April 7 in LIBRA – ARIES!

 

As with every Full Moon, and esp. with this NEPTUNE enhanced one, it can be a very emotionally / psychically ‘pregnant’ phase, as things come to a peak and culmination, esp. on the VIRGO side of  anxiety, worries and concern – well, of course mainly related to the potential of picking up (PI) the apparently pervasive corona virus.

If you’re interested in an astrological perspective on the Virus, China, and the Eclipses, check out my freshly released ASTRO~News blog.


Good news:

Things come not only to a culmination but also to fruition (think: Full Moon – Harvest Moon, and VIRGO), to be released (a la PISCES via the SUN, now close to NEPTUNE, plus MERCURY at the very end of its retro phase , and in turnaround ‘storm’ until March 19).
Esp. after a SuperMOON.

Let’s allow Life to BE (PISCES), and keep doing the Practice (VIR) that keeps us healthy, well & whole, and connected, from which right action ‘in the world’ emerges naturally.

What’s that for you?
Yoga, good nutrition, music, walks in Nature (and definitely be the Ocean) are ‘simple’ and good ones in my life.
Balance (do I hear Full Moon?!) of the spiritual / psychic / energetic with the grounded, embodied Self. 

 

Neptune Rules Pisces
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

The immense wave of SUN / NEPTUNE in central PISCES (with SCO undertone) – their yearly alignment will be exact tomorrow March 8 – feeding into the Full Moon on March 9 leads over into ARIES via CHIRON & LILITH:
Transformation in the making, for Spring and New Life in Becoming!

What a cosmic tidal wave this can be, esp. mentally-emotionally-psychically!
One thing leads to another, and all is interconnected.
Domino and snow ball to avalanche effects…
Intensity and vulnerability through overwhelm and feeling confused….

With MERCURY in ‘exile’ in PI (ruling its opposite, organized VIR) and presently in retro (Feb 16 – March 9) turnaround ‘storm’, we could easily get mentally-emotionally overwhelmed and confused, since… all is connected, and we don’t have all the information required to think straight. Well, the dots are being slowly connected…
‘Gone fishing’ / time out – literally by the water, meditating, or taking extra naps has been and still is a good way of allowing things to run their course, be washed out of our system, and fall into place in a new way.

  • What’s the Medicine that PISCES offers, at this ‘grand finale’ and in transition to ARIES?
  • What’s the Practice that the VIRGO FULL MOON prescribes?

 

If you’ve been feeling so much, and being sensitive to the collective energy, you’re not alone.
‘Their stuff?’ / Not yours?

Yes and no:
On a personal level, we don’t need to take in (PI) everyone’s woes and complications, or critique / try to improve (VIR) their behaviour that we can’t change, and a healthy membrane is a good thing, like a well-functioning immune system. Yay, esp. NOW.
Good to take care of our own body-mind-spirit Temple, says VIRGO.

Yet energetically we’re all / all IS interwoven, connected, and ONE, in the flow of Life, shows PISCES:
We’re spiritual Beings having a human experience. Something to take in and attune to, even more so with MERCURY already and for a long time in in PI (even after the retro phase, it’ll still go fully through PI, March 16 – Apr 10).

You prob. heard the quote before: “Don’t sweat the small stuff – it’s all small stuff” (Very apropos VIRGO).
I disagree with the latter part – esp. as we’re facing the virus.
But it’s worth checking in with awareness (VIR) whether a situation that upset us is actually ‘small stuff’ in the bigger context of things. And yet, why do we feel it in such a BIG way? What’s the emotion / need / even childhood theme (MOON) behind it? Let’s be kind to ourselves and one another, and practice forgiveness / release.

A spiritual teacher said: “Do you experience the suffering (as a phenomenon that comes and goes), or do you (as in: you personally) suffer the experience?”
And: “The Person has / is the Problem. Presence just IS.”

VIRGO represents the individualized Self, in that sense ‘the Person’ while PISCES represents Presence with / in / as Energy.
The VIRGO – Super PISCES Full Moon with NEPTUNE calls us to be aware of what makes us feel / take things so personally even though it might be ‘just random’ / accidental / part of the human condition.
Not to over-analyze and re-affirm ‘the problem’, rather to simply BE with it and watch it run its course…

 

Waves are coming in… – Photo by Melanie

 

On the PISCES ‘side’ (which is an oxymoron, since PI is all-encompassing), some of us sentient and sensitive ones are very attuned to the ‘psychic weather’ / oceanic atmosphere around us.
Maybe we came with this gift (which can sometimes feel like a curse), or it was evoked early in life.

  • Can you, the empathic Person, avoid being drawn into everyone’s emotional field, and experiencing it as your own? Do you need a ‘shield’? Or an energetic release practice? Got a tip for you below.
  • And what of that IS actually a reflection of you?
    VIRGO’s awareness & discernment sure help.
  • Can you let go, release the need to do something with what happened, and allow things to be as they are?
  • Can you let people be who they are, rather than trying to ‘correct them’? 
  • Have you noticed how your (PISCEAN) vibration actually changes them / the situation in a better way than your (VIR) need to ‘fix’ or ‘reform’ them?
  • How do you bring yourself, and what brings you back into alignment (VIR) with your true Soul Nature?


Things flow so much easier (PI), and the Universe ‘has our back’ when we’re true to and in alignment with ourselves (VIR).
I.o.w., when I take care of myself, knowing who I am and what works for me / how I work best it can’t be ‘wrong’ for others. Maybe just a matter of conveying it compassionately.
Whole-istic Astrology is about Realizing and Living your True YOU.
Magic and synchronicities are our companions, life is more fun and joy, and we’re naturally led to do what we’re best at, and meet people on the way whom we resonate and co-create with.

Versus trying to be everything to everybody, bending over backwards to accommodate, protecting your image and social status, and building up a fake persona, not wanting to loose face in the eyes of others, and being more perfect than you are, etc. All of that takes so much energy, comes from the ego, and actually goes against what nature intended for us:
To be authentically ourselves.
HA – seems like CHIRON & LILITH now in early ARIES agree wholeheartedly.

In this sense, more BEING in natural alignment, and less ego directed DOING (as a compensation mode) is what the Astro Doc prescribes, always, and esp. brought out by this VIRGO – Super PISCES FULL MOON.
Noticing and being aware (a VIRGO specialty) of what’s going on are the first steps to nature-ally re-align.

 

How does the VIRGO ‘Earth Angel’ in us show up in this?

 

Virgo and Mercury Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

Let’s be aware (VIR) and in a loving, open, neutral place (PI), with the washing up and out of old emotions, thoughts and vibrations.
And yes, wash (PI) our hands (ruled by VIR) as needed….

Maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, and our collective (PI) and personal (VIR) connection with / in it and conditioning by it, is showing up now…
via MERCURY for a looong time in PISCES, incl. retro (Feb 16 – March 9) mostly in PI, and again in PI March 16 – Apr 10! And via the (yearly) meeting of the SUN with NEPTUNE that’s been building up – exact tomorrow March 8.

Conditioned shadow expressions as the Victim – Perpetrator – Saviour – Martyr dynamic can easily play out now.
Our ‘job’ with VIRGO is to catch those with our Self Awareness.
Like, asking ourselves when energy is draining or we feel overwhelmed (PI low vibrations): Which role/s in the triad am I playing here?

Then you may ask: HOW to (a VIRGO approach) release all THAT?
I hear VIRGO getting concerned…

Impossible to resolve it all with a ‘strategy’, ‘method’, or ‘fix’, or by analysis…

We can’t keep these collective-connective waves from coming.
But we can practice surfing and navigating them skillfully
 (that’s where VIRGO comes in) and, rather than judging and resisting, BE with it all (PISCES) in a good vibration, and loving, heart-ful way.

 

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”
Jon Kabat-Zinn

 

Which of these themes are getting washed up – to be released?
They can be also seen in your chart – esp. where the VIRGO – PISCES axis is
(House/s, Planets…).
We can expose ourselves to the cosmic, universal,  unified and unifying PISCEAN Field, transmitted by the SUN & NEPTUNE.

 

Triple Goddess Maiden, Mother, Crone, with Waxing, Full, and Waning Moon, representing the stages of Womanhood

And channel the energy into this human dimension, by tuning into the grounding gifts of Grandmother MOON in VIRGO, sign of the Sacred Feminine and Triple Goddess.

How can Your cosmic gifts be actualized, put into service, and help You be in alignment with Your cosmic assignment?

 

Ahh – the Full MOON on March 9 also leads over to Friday the 13th of March (one of the two Fridays the 13th this year – next one in Nov) –
Day of the Sacred Feminine (article to follow), since it relates to VENUS (Friday is VENUS-Day) and the MOON with her 13 lunar cycles every year.

 

The VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon Chart

The 19º37′ VIR – PI Full Moon will be exact at 10:48 am PDT on MoOnday March 9.

Immediately obvious:

We’re in a VERY PISCEAN realm – balanced by the VIRGO MOON.

Mid-PISCES (which has a SCO undertone) SUN, together with its Ruler NEPTUNE.

MERCURY the ‘Messenger’ which rules VIRGO is for a very long time in the PISCEAN oceanic realm this year:
Since Feb 16, until Apr 10, and has been going retro (March 5 – 28) mostly in PI too!
MERCURY in PI esp. during the retro phase has brought a lot of confusion and overwhelm into the collective mental field, yet is also attuning us to openness, connectedness, and fluidity of the Mind

The SUN & NEPTUNE can be experienced as a vital-energetic drain. And is also an invitation to consciously BE in the vaster Energy Field and tune into Oneness of / as All-That-Is…

 

The essence of timeless Tao: Yin-Yang Balance – always dynamic and interwoven

The SUN /  NEPTUNE / MERCURY ‘field’ in PI show us: All is unified and ONE.

Letting go of mental escapist addictions, hooks and hang-ups (MERCURY in PI), or of being caught in the collective web would be so healing.
Perhaps through sound, music, dance, and vibrational medicine.

MERCURY in PI responds well to those vibrational ‘messages’, rather than being more inundated, confused, and hypnotized by ‘news’ in the overwhelm of media (also ruled by PI).
Which is not a suggestion to put the head into the sand.
Rather an opport-Unity to let go, and tune into deeper messages.

 

Big Wave Surfer Maya Gabeira

 

As we immerse fully into the PISCEAN field there is just energy, a ‘quantum soup’.
Which can be overwhelming and chaotic, for the individualized, ‘separate’ human personal self. Examples are everywhere, incl. the constant influx / inundation of media (also ruled by PISCES), paradoxically creating FOMO (fear of missing out) – where we never get enough, and still don’t know…
I guess you’re getting the picture…. 

Interconnectedness of ALL can, for our separate identity, be overwhelming, confusing, make us vulnerable – or make us want to escape, be ‘addicted’ to ‘the (temporary) state of bliss and union’, etc.
The invitation is to experience, immerse, and merge in the field of Oneness, knowing it doesn’t go away, and is omnipresent.

The SUN now in PISCES is bringing Solar Consciousness to the bigger, longer, and more transpersonal influences of NEPTUNE in PISCES 2012 – 2026, and perhaps in retrospect also to CHIRON in PISCES 2010 – 2019.

So much is coming together now…

Allow it, and allow yourself to BE.
Maybe that means letting go of, forgiving, releasing something, some ‘disappointment’, ‘illusion’, etc. (chances are in the area of life related to PI in your chart).

CHIRON in PISCES has shown over the last decade how old, early, time-transcending wounds came up in this process (esp. for those of us born in the 1960’s under CHIRON in PI, and anyone with PI placements).
As James Hillman summed it up in a Jungian seminar in Victoria a few years ago: There are two basic early childhood wounds:
Abandonment and overwhelm
 (invasion, abuse).
We might have experienced one more than the other, or both in combination. They often lead to addiction – as an escape, and / or substitute for genuine connection… Real connection is Healing.

A Review of the effects of CHIRON in PISCES over the last decade would be quite helpful and integrative.

Crystal activated Voyager card XVII – Star, showing Kuan Yin, Goddess of Compassion – Photo and Crystal activation by Melanie

And what’s with MERCURY, now back to the beginning of PI (will re-enter on March 16)?

I call the AQ – PI cusp also ‘Kuan Yin Point’ – This Chinese female Buddha offers Compassion for Humanity and All Life Forms.

Offering Kuan Yin Blessings for China and for all Sentient Beings!

 

On this note: Is MERCURY retro over on March 9?

Technically yes, when it stops its retro motion, and is going slooooowly forward again. Which means: Next week, MERCURY is in turnaround station, aka storm, like a gear shift, until it catches some momentum from March 19  on – YES, at Spring Equinox – and will be out of post-retro ‘storm’ by then, but still in post-retro ‘shadow’ until March 30. Yes, Feb & March have been major M-r months.

The next 1 1/2 weeks are still ‘HOT’ post-retro wise, and it would be good to be very clear with agreements and communication, yet also an excellent time to also slow down, and RE-ceive messages that help with integrating the retro phase themes.

Once MERCURY is (fully) out of retro we’ll have another retro-free acceleration phase – until PLUTO goes retro, on April 25. We’ll experience quite the shift with the next New Moon in fierce & swift ARIES, on March 24.

 

NEPTUNE in PI’s need for Connection and Oneness with the Great Mother, the Universe, the All, can lead to ‘looking for Love at the wrong places’, going on a compensation course via addictions of all sorts that promise to let the ‘me’ go away for a while, but hey, it does come back each time, which can turn into a painful vicious cycle.

These ‘depleting’ tendencies can be met by our awareness of wholeness (Full Moon in VIR) from which renewed Consciousness that-IS (PI SUN) can come.
Practices that lead us to a physical, sensate awareness of wholeness, like mindfulness meditation, Yoga, walks in Nature help, ideally integrated into our life as a healthy routine (VIR).

What are other concrete practices, maybe healthy rituals you can DO (VIRGO) that help us come back into Oneness with / in Life?

Often we have to feel what’s now ripe to be healed. There may be catalysts that bring out the old wounds – to be also healing agents. Rather than spiritually bypassing the wounds, indulging in them, or escaping into addictive behaviour, how can we do our part in letting go and healing?

 

The Full MOON in VIR – PISCES, together with the North Node now (until June 2020) in CANCER invites us to invoke Divine Mother / Goddess energy that is always available to support us and all sentient Beings.
Like Kuan Yin, or Mother Mary, or many other Mother Goddesses.

We can’t ‘do it all’ but we can ask for assistance from Higher dimensions
See how your energy shifts…! And hey, it’s been said that Angelic helpers have to be asked – they don’t interfere.

Maybe it helps us with dropping resistance and separation, and, rather than trying to armour ourselves against the ‘tsunami of energy’ (since as sensitive souls we tend to take things in, and they sit and stick there, and possibly contaminate our inner environment) we can ask and allow the energy to gently leave us.

And when it comes to the corona virus, of course good to strengthen the immune system, rather than going into pandemic panic (very PI). Fear and survival mode are contagious, lower the immune system, and we re-act from reptilian brain place, and separate / isolate us.
How can we make sure to stay connected with one another, and, rather than cultivating worry vibes send healing blessings to all affected?

 

Crystal (mainly clear Quartz) activated Voyager Tarot card II – Priestess – Crystal activation and Photo by Melanie

 

VIRGO is the energy of the Harvest Goddess,  Priestess, and Sacred Feminine who is whole and complete, clear and aligned with her sacred Self – which keeps her / us well and in integrity.

VIRGO practices self-awareness, and tends to ‘her’ body-mind-spirit Temple through clearing, discernment, sacred and spiritual practice, such as ceremony and ritual.

Which means in our practical daily life:
A body / health / wellness / nutrition practice and lifestyle.
A healthy body in a healthy spirit.
Honouring ourselves and our body-temple.
Practice Is Perfect.

  • Is there a practice you can adopt / pick up again right now that would benefit your well being?
    Something simple and self-sufficient, like:
    Cell phone free walks, Yoga, healthy exercise, getting more regularly fresh air, 5 min meditation before meeting someone, or before going to bed, blessing the food you eat?
  • Which ‘recipes, remedies, and rituals’ would your inner Mentor prescribe?
    Like:Adding / removing something from your diet, adjusting you sleep hours, or your work style, introducing certain practices that make you overall happier and healthier, a morning ritual?
  • Is there something is ripe and ready now to be harvested, as in: let go of?
    The phase after the VIR – PI Full Moon, before the first Spring New Moon (March 23) is perfect for Spring cleaning & clearing for the home and for a body cleanse.
  • Would a ceremony help release something old and outlived, and / or help invite beneficial cosmic energies?

 

What a creative combo of both PI and VIR could look like:

  • Ride the waves, be in your(!) element.
  • Your skills are what comes easy (not about ‘overcoming problems’).
  • Holding space for others can be the best service you can offer.
  • What is Service of & to the Soul?
  • Clean up with music.
  • Energy Medicine. AstroSomatics.
  • Sacred Geometry.
  • Astrology and its practical, embodied benefits.
  • Being in the world, yet not of the world. Doing what needs to be done, yet not in attachment.
  • God helps those who help themselves. Doing our share, and trusting divine intervention.
  • Random acts of service bring fulfillment.
  • Energetic hygiene.

 

On the note of the latter (energetic hygiene), here’s a very helpful practice I learned years ago from meditation & Qi Gong teacher Susan Broznitsky:

Releasing Stuck / Toxic Energy – Visualization Practice

…and yes, as we are doing the practice, we extend it into the field of Planet Earth…

We all carry energy around that we picked up somewhere, and that’s sitting in us. What we can’t release can become toxic (low PI-SCO vibration). It can be quite frustrating to feel or sense those things that are not directly ours (yet in a bigger sense they are ours too…).
We might have picked things up from other people or from the collective field, through resonance and empathy, and / or by being in a low and receptive vibration (like feeling angry, and docking on to the anger around us). As empaths, and when we have a lot of PISCES in us we tend to take a lot IN, and need to make sure we release it too.

Close your eyes, and sit (or stand) upright.
Visualize your energy body that’s you and surrounds you as a beautiful temple, or cathedral, or garden, or any sacred space that speaks to you. Create or remember that sacred space vividly, in front of your inner eye.
Now locate where in your body, esp. in which Chakra area you have taken something in that’s still ‘sitting there’ and might feel like a blockage.
Realize and acknowledge that you must have opened up doors of your sacred space to let ‘it’ in, probably in front of your body when you were facing ‘it’.
Now you’re invited to go to the back of your body in that same area, and open the doors or windows there (maybe they have never been opened? Or you weren’t aware that you can do this even?)!
Now allow the stuck energy to leave your space, blessed and transformed – since it is a sacred space. With ease and accompanied by the light. Hold space for this process. You may experience a light ray coming in from the back where you open the door / window, helping the energy to leave on this light ray.

Your experience is unique, and might have a message for you too.
How do you feel now?

You can do this practice when you notice having taken something in that kicks you off balance, and also in hindsight, even after years of ‘cultivating’ something in you.
I’m not saying, do it all the time, to avoid any discomfort… but as a tool to work with, so that the energy can flow.

This is a great tool (well, I like it, and the clients whom I have shown it to) that is easy, can be done anywhere, without even anyone noticing. 🙂

 

Other Energies in the VIR – SuperPI Full MOON ‘Field’

Call of the Mountain – Photo by Melanie

 

Mountain Medicine

Yes, still a lot of CAPRICORN energy too, activated by MARS these weeks (Feb 16 – March 30).
Which makes Earth the strongest element these days / weeks.

And the Full Moon in VIRGO goes into Earth Trine with them all (MARS, JUPITER, PLUTO, SATURN), on March 9.
A call for integrity, simplicity, humility, and an opportunity to work with what we’re best at and what’s in alignment.
The spiritual practice is a mountain path – don’t carry extra ‘baggage’ with you, and stay on track and in the practice.

MARS in CAP is a solid energy that holds everyone (esp. oneself and those in leadership) accountable, AND helps us to be mature & responsible, step up to the occasion with our cap-acities, and get the job done.
Accomplishment and completion are CAP’s big motivators.
CAP keeps it real, and doesn’t like waste of Time and Energy
(well, super relevant now with the virus).

The ‘grand finale’ of MARS contacts is only coming up – between the upcoming Full Moon and the next New Moon in ARIES (by then, MARS will be already in AQ).

MARCH 14
MARS in mid CAP sextiling NEPTUNE in mid PI.
Great time for work flow. And to be in connectedness which naturally leads us to what matters most.
There’s always primo energy for it available.

MARCH 20
MARS in late CAP meets JUPITER.
Looots of energy – for what brings out our Best and what we’re built for
(yet it might have been hard to tackle thus far).
Let’s use that energy – round Spring Equinox!
Also great for Spring cleaning, of course.

MARCH 22
MARS in late CAP meets & passes PLUTO.
Whoooaa – Power House / Super Hero energy.
Likely the highlight of the MARS in CAP Transit – and it can express on different levels:
Transforming anger into productive work.
Moving Mountains? What needs to change to accomplish this…?
Societal structures change when shadow comes out.
Deep inner work that transforms generational / historic / ancestral conditioning.
Doing the Soul Work.

 

Awakening (through) the Body, and EmBodying Freedom & Awakeness

Another earthy activation comes via URANUS being met by VENUS who recently ‘settled’ in TAU (March 4 – Apr 3).

Tomorrow, MARCH 8 – on the eve of the VIR – PI Big Wave Full Moon, VENUS newly in TAU meets URANUS.
EnJoy freely and without attachment – follow the body. Be surprised at what (or whom?) you fall in love with. Freedom from, for, and without any attribute and ‘opposite’ / other.

 

Lastly, LILITH & CHIRON, united in early ARIES are now (early to mid March) forming a sharp T-square with the Nodal Axis (North Node early CANCER, South Node early CAP). 
The on-going dilemma between doing what’s timely & required – yet not the hard / old / conditioned way – and being gentle and caring finds its resolution through being authentic and present with what shows up here-now. Apparently a challenge to be brave, yet just let emerge what’s in you. Be YOU, not their projection.
The next New Moon in early ARIES on March 24 will ‘come with’ CHIRON & LILITH.

Lots of shifts into newness-nowness!
A whole different scenario than in this outflowing, transitional, preparatory phase.

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 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.

The Virus, China, and the Eclipses – an Astrological Perspective

6 Mar

Sooo – an omnipresent, all pervasive concern these days… 

I felt called to explore the Corona Virus situation astrologically – when it comes to the present micro-macro cosmic ‘Zeitgeist’ on Planet Earth, and in relation to China.
SEVEN factors presented themselves that shed light & perspective on the situation:

 

  1. Micro / macro meaning of ‘Corona’.
    …and is it pure coincidence that an annular ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse happened just weeks after the presumed outbreak, and just days after China reported???
  2. The role of the SATURN – PLUTO transit in CAP on Jan 12
  3. Chinese New Year of the Metal RAT, started Jan 25 – what’s the relevance?
  4. Huge PISCES wave, incl MERCURY retro, and SUN – NEPTUNE, Feb to mid-March
  5. Culmination with the Full Moon in VIRGO – PISCES (with NEPTUNE), on March 9, and resolution thereafter?
  6. The Role of SATURN going into AQ on March 21, for its first phase (until July 1)
  7. Astrological transits for China, 2020 and beyond

 

Micro / Macro Meaning of ‘Corona’ 

…and is it pure coincidence that an annular ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse happened just weeks after the presumed outbreak, and just days after China reported???

Last week, when I consulted Wiki re: meaning and origin of the name Corona Virus, I was stunned to find:
“The name “coronavirus” is derived from the Latin corona and the Greek κορώνη (korṓnē, “garland, wreath”), meaning crown or halo. The name refers to the characteristic appearance of virions (the infective form of the virus) by electron microscopy, which have a fringe of large, bulbous surface projections creating an image reminiscent of a crown or of a solar corona.”

Here we go – the micro virus and the macro Eclipse have an appearance in common that gave them the same name!

‘Incidentally’, very close to the suspected outbreak of the new Corona Virus strand (first known infection Dec 1 – however it took the Chinese Govt until Dec 31 to report the virus to the WHO!), there was a ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse on Dec 25 / 26, with its path going over the Arabic Peninsula, Southern India, and South East Asia.
In China, it was a partial Eclipse.

China has been criticized for cover-ups and downplaying the initial discovery and severity of the outbreak.
That sounds very much like the shadow of SATURN (fear inducing hierarchical authority – vs. responsibility) & PLUTO (control / abuse of power / cover-up / repression) – the two Planets were about to align on Jan 12
(only every 36 – 37 years). And it sounds like the shadow of CAP (rigid top-down authority of the ‘old empire model’) – which has been coming out with the Eclipses of Dec 25 / 26 and of Jan 10 / 11 (visible in all of Europe, most of Africa, and all of Asia.

Quote from my ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse in early CAP blog post:
“The Old Empire is expiring, as it’s unsustainable
(a critical CAP question) and has shown ample evidence (Saturn) for its (self)destructive (Pluto) potential.
As an Annular Solar Eclipse, the MOON almost completely covers the SUN disk, reduced to a fiery ring ‘behind’ the MOON. Symbolically, the Yin / Female / Lunar quality steps in front of the Yang / Masculine / Solar to create a temporary darkening effect.
A light switch in consciousness.”

In a country, the MOON represents in trad. Astrology the People, and the SUN the Government.
All the affected and even killed people by the virus eclipse / cast quite a dark shadow on the Chinese Government, which – after the delayed (YES, CAP requires responsibility in a timely manner) reporting – took extreme & rigid measures to prevent further spreading. Lock-down, quarantine, hefty controls – all expressions of SATURN – PLUTO in CAP. Other countries followed in their own ways of trying to control the pandemic and protect their citizens, some also with bans and restrictions.

However the progress / resolution of the virus situation will be, question is, as SATURN – PLUTO started a new cycle:
Is this the beginning of more rigid state / governmental / global institutional control – some fear Orwellian scenarios – or is it a wake-up call for Humanity to reclaim intrinsic authority and power? 
Let’s aspire to and embody the latter. Of course that doesn’t just come ‘automatically’. It requires from us to be in soulful integrity wherever possible. And it’s work in progress.

 

The Role of the SATURN – PLUTO Transit in CAP on Jan 12

Yes, the CANCER – multi-CAP Lunar Eclipse catalyzed the Epic Alignment of SATURN & PLUTO on Jan 12!
Indicating: The Old Empire Expires – and with it, the release of an old and initiation into an New Era.
See my blog post from Jan 9.

Plus, URANUS was early-mid Jan also in the picture, as it turned from retro to direct on the Lunar Eclipse DAY, Jan 10.
A very URANian (exciting, electric, shocking, unpredictable,  wake-up calls, liberating) phase it’s been indeed.
And it started a 5-week period where NO Planet was retro (until MERCURY turned retro on Feb 16), and things (incl. viruses, news, fear…) could move forward and manifest in the outer World much faster – for better or worse…

 

Now check the Eclipse chart in comparison with the chart of China (Oct 1, 1949 at 15:15 in Beijing)!

The massive Eclipse Stellium of SUN, MERCURY, SATURN & PLUTO, between 20 – 23º CAP were exactly conjunct China’s JUPITER at 22º35′ CAP in the 12th House.
What’s the hidden-in-plain-sight (12th House) Truth (JUPITER) here?
Where does the virus really come from, and why did it take China so long to report this big pervasive issue?
Did it ‘escape’ from a high security bio-chemical lab in Wuhan, as rumours have it?
What do we know? Says also MERCURY retro in PI where information is super fuzzy / messy /confusing / paradoxical.
In any case, a big concerted effort (JUPITER in CAP) needed now to deal with this issue.

More about the Astrology for China below.

Back to the SATURN – PLUTO conjunction.
The alignment comes every 36 – 38 years only.
This time in SATURN’s home sign CAP (last time there in 1518 – the start of the Reformation, initiated by Martin Luther who accused the Church institution being out of integrity with its foundation – the Bible), a historic turning point.
This alignment, shows also the evidence / reality (SATURN) of Power (PLUTO), and the shadow / hidden / repressed agenda (PLUTO) of governments and hierarchical structures everywhere – in this case, in their response to the virus.
And it’s about hidden / core (PLUTO) fears (SATURN). Something hidden / invisible (PLUTO) – the virus – can have a whole chain reaction of effects (SATURN).

With SATURN – PLUTO, it can get intense as things come to an end.

The Astro Medicine of healing like with like: 
To strengthen our Power centre (PLUTO) and our ‘immune system’ / boundaries (SATURN) when it comes to the virus of fear – the most contagious of them all.
Yet also to be practical and have a healthy common sense protocol, and responsibility (SATURN).

In terms of the 36 – 38 year cycle of SATURN – PLUTO:
The last conjunction was in 1982-83 end of LIBRA.
Well, it was the time when the AIDS / HIV virus broke out.
End of LIBRA – leaning over to SCO has to do with relationships / intimacy. What an impact! Relationships & sex seemed to be never the same / forever changed thereafter.
Thankfully, treatment & survival rates are improving in the meantime, of course.

This is not to say, the Corona Virus Covid-19 will have as massive effects as AIDS / HIV.
But the SATURN – PLUTO Zeitgeist shows the fear of dying an untimely death from something out of control (is it ever?) that governments and other institutions ‘should’ protect is from (CAP) is massive now.

Again, the radical notion to be self responsible (SATURN) and empowered (PLUTO), and explore deeper where our fears (SATURN) are rooted, and what THE core fear (PLUTO-SATURN) is – can be an empowering turning point (PLUTO).

In the meantime, MARS has entered CAP (on Feb 16), and will cross JUPITER & PLUTO on March 20 / 22, and SATURN (by then in early AQ) on March 31.
The end of March / in first days of Spring, there’s lots of energy to help with acting on understanding – even though it’s a high call / big task, which can transform a situation tremendously. Previously perceived blocks and fears that held us back can be overcome with collaboration.
May the Martian energy help with moving the situation forward, and bring new overall vitality.

 

Chinese New Year of the Metal RAT, started Jan 25 – what’s the relevance?

Well, the outbreak started in December – possibly in November 2019 if not before –  still in the Year of the Earth PIG – the last year of the Chinese Animal Circle.

Which was another year with strong pleasure, indulgence & convenience focus – speaking of the privileged world – in stark contrast with war zones and countries where all the ‘toys’ are being produced, often under inhumane, abusive conditions – as in China itself.

The SCORPIOnic quality of the PIG to become aware of the shadow and dark side of things was certainly also ON globally, esp. re: media deception, climate crisis, etc. Truly overwhelming… at the end of the cycle with PIG.

What I said in the CNY blog can be seen in a new light now:

“… But hey, literally, our indulgence and more more more consumerism, driven by the economy that’s catering to ‘convenience’ and manipulating personal egos, and with the big trail of waste production & disposal leaves a legacy that shows: Pigs are way cleaner animals than humans.

Let’s clean up our act, and step out of the consumer pig sty! SATURN / PLUTO in CAP agree: Can’t go on like this. Off to a suicide mission for humans and other species on Mother EARTH otherwise.

Let’s contribute to consciousness in action, as in fulfillment in simplicity.
Less is more (says also JUPITER now in CAP) so that the ship can be turned around.
Otherwise, the RATs are the first to desert the sinking ship….”

Yep – so much wasteful consumer production (manufactured under detrimental conditions for humans and nature) is coming out of China nowadays… and so many goods now in general that the world economy depends upon – ever since China has become a major economic power – roughly coinciding with PLUTO entering CAP (2008 / 2009, still on until 2023), following the globalization under PLUTO in SAG (1995 – 2008).
Wondering whether the impact of the virus will be a ‘Ground Zero’ for China – as the WTC attacks in 2001 under PLUTO in SAG were for the SAG country U.S.? Let’s trust that a Chinese economy breakdown that spirals down the World economy can be avoided. And that it’ll be not just a recovery but a turning point for the better, for the wellness of humans, the economy, and nature.

EARTH is in the Chinese system associated with

  • The Centre (also in Feng Shui / the BaGua) –
    Hmmm, China was called The Middle Empire – likely associated with the Centre in Feng Shui.
    And the virus apparently originated / spread from the centre of China – Wuhan is in Central China’s Hubei province.
  • The Change of Seasons (rather than ONE season)
    Also a time when viruses are most prevalent.
  • The Planet SATURN – corresponds with SATURN in earthy CAP (this year in transition to AQ).
  • The Colour Yellow.
  • The Yellow Dragon.
  • The digestive system, spleen, and stomach.
    If it’s true that the virus spread via a leap from wild animals to humans (perhaps with a market animal as a bridge) it would have been ingested somehow.

And now for the RAT Year (since Jan 25, 2020)
The time when the news about the virus were spreading, and the world at large became aware of it – and as instead of visiting their families for CNY Wuhan citizens were in enforced quarantine, while many did escape ‘just in time’ from the ‘sinking ship’, and spread the virus further.

Btw the Bat (if it was indeed the ‘initial carrier’ of the virus) isn’t related to the Rat.

The two significant Astro transits in the RAT year will be, with JUPITER (which as the Chinese Animals, has a 12-year cycle) this year in CAP, JUPITER / PLUTO, and JUPITER / SATURN.

From the blog:

JUPITER / PLUTO
Their 3 conjunctions in CAP will be Apr 4, June 28, and Nov 12, 2020, ending a 13-year cycle since 2007 and beginning a new one.

Big time transformation (PLUTO) through understanding & outgrowing the old system (JUPITER in CAP).
The Power of resourcefulness, voluntary simplicity, and quality over quantity. Time to bring out our Best – from our Soul Essence. RAT is a resourceful & resilient survivor, so creative and propitious – when accessing our true Gold (that sometimes sadly only crisis brings out).

JUPITER / SATURN
Their conjunction on Dec 21 / Winter Solstice 2020
 – just days after both Planets will be OUT of CAP, coming together at 1° AQ – and starting a new 20-year cycle.
The now ending socio-economic-political cycle began in 2000 in TAURUS
: Conservative political leadership, territorialism, consumerism, and thankfully at least also a growing concern for Nature.

Their alignment on the cusp of AQ initiates two decades of collaboration and social responsibility of all Humanity – beyond CAP hierarchies.

RATs are very smart, perceptive, and solution oriented. They figure things out, are industrious, resourceful, resilient, and adaptable to necessary changes  – clearly all qualities needed in this situation!

Also super relevant in the context of the virus and its effects / implications:
RAT in the 1st Triad of Power
RAT is in the Chinese Zodiac system part of the 1st Triad – of Power, and buddies with Dragon & Monkey.
All 3 Animals are powerful and capable of great good and great destruction – hence the key is ego control and transformation of shadow to light.
All 3 have potent energy and unpredictability. Their gifts of intelligence, charisma, authority, confidence, and eloquence need to be used and channeled wisely.

RAT starts a new Element: METAL – in the Chinese system associated with 

  • The West
  • The Fall Season – possibly the time already when the virus started to take hold in China.
  • The respiratory system & lungs & large intestine.
    Uhhh, protecting the respiratory tract from viruses…(!!!) Gosh, I wrote this already in the CNY blog!
  • The Planet VENUS. VENUS was in PISCES-to-ARIES in the first big wave of the virus (Jan 13 – Feb 7 – March 4). A lot can be attracted and picked up in a no boundary situation, followed by being drawn to survival / super activism mode incl. survival shopping. ‘squirrel style’.
  • The Colour White – hence also: White RAT – reminiscent of labs.
  • METAL objects & forms. In Feng Shui, these include round forms, circles, spheres, coins. Economy and technology.

It’s good to strengthen / be supported by all those attributes, always, and esp. in these two METAL years.

 

Huge PISCES wave, incl MERCURY retro, and SUN – NEPTUNE, Feb to mid-March

Acute factors to consider re: Pervasive anxiety & Virophobia:

MERCURY still retro (since Feb 16 until March 9) – with the next week being again ‘stormy’ (until March 19) in the turnaround phase. And it’s been mostly in PISCES (the energy of Oneness, yet also all-pervasive / invasive overwhelming no boundary situations, contagious vibes for better or worse, fusion & confusion). MERCURY is going back & forth over the ‘Coherence Point’ of AQ – PI – AQ – PI where collective energies affect groups and even all of humanity: We’re all in this together! An intense opport-unity to be mindful of where thoughts & emotions go in this wave of confusion and premonitions… but: not BEING the mind. Gaining space. Breathing into Being. 

The SUN reaches and passes (once a year) NEPTUNE, on March 8. Yes, the tide is high – showing us how indeed we’re ONE World. NEPTUNE’s been in PI since 2012, and until 2026.

Both the SUN & NEPTUNE are now in the central (10 – 20 degrees) SCORPIOnic part of PISCES, where things intensify to reach a turning point of transformation.

 

Culmination with the Full Moon in VIRGO – PISCES (with NEPTUNE), on March 9, and resolution thereafter?

The next FULL MOON – on MoOnday March 9 – is building up, with the MOON in VIRGO, ruling health, wellness, hygiene, and a rational, analytical, practical, problem-solution approach – yes, we need all of this!- and the SUN in PISCES with NEPTUNE, asking to shine the light of conscious connectedness into the whole, and be radiant in the ONE.

Check out the preview chart of the Full Moon:

SO, let’s hope the FULL MOON will be a grand culmination of the whole virus scenario!
At least a culmination of the first and massive wave.
With MERCURY going out of retro (also on March 9 – turnaround phase until March 19) and out of PISCES (Apr 10) the mega fuzzy / messy / confusing information situation will resolve, and we know more – which can change the picture and the next steps.

Blessings for Wellness of Body & Mind in all of us, and in the World CommUnity! 

 

The Role of SATURN going into AQ on March 21, for its first phase (until July 1)

SATURN is now on the CAP – AQ cusp where community building and collaboration on all levels are necessary – even if challenging. We realize that even with bringing our best forward (CAP) we can only go so far by ourselves.
Group synergy is where it’s at.
In smaller circles of friends, in common-interest groups, in community projects, in all kinds of teams.  
And the emphasis is on equality in the circle – beyond CAP hierarchy. Everyone brings their best into the project.

Can we do this?!

And can this be done on a global scale?
It must, says SATURN, now for a ‘test phase’ in AQ (March 21 – July 1), before it goes back to CAP for last ‘unfinished business’ at the last degrees. On Dec 16, SATURN will enter AQ for the next 2 1/2 years, followed by JUPITER on Dec 19.
Both Planets come together in their epic conjunction on the 1st degree of AQ, closing a 20-year socio-political-economic cycle since 2000, and opening a new one.
This all points to the necessity of more collaboration of all faculties and organizations – with the danger of even more control from this ‘high-level’ network.  May the responsibility that comes with it be used wisely!
And may We the People (AQ) step into our intrinsic authority. 
Divided we fall. United we stand.

(Even more) division via technology is a big danger of SATURN in AQ. The shadow / repercussions of technology / science, as well as their responsibility will become evident.  How can scientific collaboration help with solving the virus issue? Timing is crucial, says SATURN.
Currently, fear (SATURN) of being in community events and gatherings of people is already kicking in, due to virophobia. Events are being cancelled / postponed, and there may be more community regulations.
Let’s be cautious, responsible – and realistic.

SATURN (and JUPITER next year!) in AQ can even bring a re-structuring of society – and together with the AQ Ruler URANUS in TAU upheavals in the economy, leading to fresh innovative approaches to values and nature.

Bottom line – let’s not be caught in the default mode of fearful isolation, and make an effort (a little initiative goes a long way…) to reach out to friends and community to organize, co-innovate together, and raise vibrations!

 

Lastly – importantly:

Astrological Transits for China, 2020 and beyond

Here’s once again the chart of China – creation of the PRC (People’s Republic of China) in 1949, after the Civil War and Communist Revolution:

The revolutionary, egalitarian ideal for / in the People is reflected in its AQ AC with the MOON (the People) rising, and the ruling Planet URANUS in the lunar abode CANCER.
Yet also – hidden in plain sight – JUPITER in CAP in its 12th House. 
Lots of hardship, deprivation, an omnipresence of control institutions, ‘heavy lifting’, and lately, under PLUTO in CAP since 2008 (first time in Communist China’s history, first time in 250 years), ueber production – carried by / at the expense of most of the population, producing under inhumane, disrespectful conditions, economic power, and, yes, also: new economically privileged elites having made their way ‘UP’ in China.
Looks like the shadow comes to an intense crescendo / breakdown / burnout / transformation now, with PLUTO & SATURN (see SAT-PLU paragraph above) on China’s JUPITER – first phase last Spring / early Summer, and full-on with their conjunction on Jan 12, 2020. Hiding / repressing / oppressing ain’t no more. The ‘Old Empire’ expires. The CAP shadow is are out now, and ‘spilling over’ (12th House) collectively / globally. No more business as usual. Not just productivity (CAP) but more importantly: the People (MOON) are deeply affected by something that seems to have ‘a life of its own’ (PLUTO) unless controlled and contained (SATURN). 
How can China and its effects on the world recover and regenerate, stronger and evolved?! 
Its power has to be used in a responsible, exemplary, transformed way.

Quite striking that Communist China was founded with the same constellation of SUN / NEPTUNE / MERCURY retro (then in LIBRA) as we’re having this month (in PISCES, see Full Moon chart) – very rare!
China brought the Neptunian Communist ideal to life (SUN / NEPTUNE) as apparent ‘perfect balance’, yet the conjunction with MERCURY retro in LIBRA hints towards the fact that ‘diplomacy’, nice word cosmetics and slogans can’t camouflage the harsh omnipresent bigger picture (JUPITER in CAP in the 12th),
Plus, the South Node, also in LIBRA, close to the SUN / NEPTUNE / MERCURY retro cluster, and North Node in ARIES with LILITH (where LILITH is this year!) says, better than ‘dancing around’ strategically is to be authentic and make bold first steps forward.

A big challenging test for China, as JUPITER & SATURN on the CAP / AQ cusp between China’s JUPITER and MOON this year show how the government (CAP) and society (AQ) are held accountable to use their best resources / their resources for the best purpose. And to not isolate but collaborate, scientifically and politically (SATURN in AQ).

And speaking of Eclipses:
As mentioned, the ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse on Dec 25 / 26 happened round the time the virus broke out and was eventually reported.
The also annular / Ring of Fire Summer Solstice Solar Eclipse on June 21 at the 1st degree of CANCER will be super close to China’s ruling Planet, the revolutionary URANUS, and the Eclipse shadow will go over China. 
A ‘light switch’ for a new revolutionary consciousness?!

When JUPITER & SATURN align on Dec 21 at the 1st degree of AQ, starting a new  20-year socio-economic-political cycle that’ll be super close to China’s MOON / AC. Truly a new era for China.

 

 

Hope all the ‘serious stuff’ written above doesn’t bring you fear. 
Rather an informed alternative perspective.
To see is to be FREE.

Important to not go into fear-separation, but cultivate highly contagious vibrations of LOVE, and send them out to whom it may concern!
