CHIRON goes retro in ARIES (July 11 – Dec 15) – Healing through Inner Medicine and Authenticity

8 Jul

Sensing it too?
It’s a CHIRON-ic week, and month of July, dear Astro~News Reader!
On July 11, Shamanic Healer / Teacher CHIRON, now freshly in ARIES, goes into its yearly 5-months retro ‘retreat’ – to help us source the Medicine from within.

Quick flash-back for context:
CHIRON crossed over the Spring Equinox a.k.a. ‘Emergence’ Point on Feb 18, 2019, to ‘Come Alive’ in ARIES.
Here’s a link to the blog post for CHIRON’s entry into ARIES.

 

Howzit going thus far, with CHIRON in ARIES?


CHIRON in ARIES connects us with the Medicine of being authentic, in the moment, and starting a-fresh!

In Society, we’ve seen esp. last year brave Young Warriors showing up for their Future, showing us: The Time to act is NOW.
And this year (first one with CHIRON in ARIES, yet also a massive CAP concentration) has been ever so turbulent and unprecedented, esp. when it comes to the (established) medical field, shows:
A new approach to healing is ever so needed, to transform out of the ‘medical battle’ a la ARIES (War on cancer, virus, you name it), as well as confrontational polarization across the board.

The Spring Equinox New Moon in early ARIES on March 24, 2020 came with CHIRON & LILITH (this year also in ARIES)
It’s a Wild New World & Life –

  • How do early wounds (esp. about survival / starting fresh and new) show up to be healed?
  • What’s the Medicine that emerges out of your unconditioned Self?
  • What IS a new approach to staying vibrant, healthy, and strong (ARIES) in this interconnected and multi-influenz-ial (PISCES) world?

 

Full Circle CHIRON in ARIES

The last time CHIRON was for a long time in ARIES, almost 9 years:
Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977 – and a lot happened in those years historically
(thinking immediately of the mass protests in Prague 1968, leading to relative liberation, and of course Woodstock  in Aug 1969, Moon landing in July 1969).
Those of you born in those years carry the Medicine of the Warrior, of Renewal & fresh Beginnings, yet healing of early wounds is a big theme for you as well – leading you to emerge with New Medicine that comes from within and is authentic and unique.
If you were born round 1970 this is your CHIRON Return year – full circle of initiation into your original Medicine.

 

Personal CHIRON in ARIES Themes

Here are some themes you probably recognize, esp. if YOU have your SUN / MOON / AC, or Planets – or even CHIRON in ARIES.

  • All is fresh, raw, and NEW in ARIES.
  • Doing something for the first time – setting a precedent for yourself – try it on!
  • Even if you don’t have partners or allies, going ahead by yourself anyway can be healing.
  • Being in a New World.
  • Finding the Medicine of being Authentically YOU!
  • Emerging from the Collective Consciousness.
  • Taking Initiative.
  • When it’s time to leave the scene and start afresh – simply DO it.

Which all can be scary, and / or hugely liberating.

 

CHIRON the Centaur turned Warrior – artist unknown

CHIRON brings up ‘wounds’ and awkwardness, and we feel like an outsider – in ARIES when we show up or stand up for ourselves, and for what matters to us.

It might be also awkward if we didn’t have role models, or their teachings don’t apply to THIS. 

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

That’s what ARIES often deals with / presents: NOW THIS!
Alive, alert, letting life force emerge in every moment. Time for fresh beginnings – or for simply being present with what’s always NEW.

Show up in a new way, try out what you haven’t before, not in a long time, or don’t have a ‘model’ or comparison for. If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES doesn’t mind starting anew). The essence of being innovative.
Anger (an ARIES expression) can be your vulnerability (incl. passive-aggressive modes if anger isn’t / wasn’t ok) yet also guide you to your Medicine.

 

Your CHIRON in ARIES

If you were born with CHIRON in ARIES (Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977) you know a bit (or a lot) about the CHIRONic side described above…
For you, round age 50 CHIRON will make its Return, and your ‘original wound / Medicine’ comes full circle.
All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in early ARIES (or triggered by it, in LIBRA, CAN or CAP) we’ll get a CHIRON ‘kick’ too, to step forward, authentically as we are, esp. in the area of life related to our ARIES House in the chart:

CHIRON Activation for all of us


MARS, the ruler of ARIES now and for a looong time also in ARIES (since June 27 – and until Jan 7, 2021).

MARS in ARIES will next week meet CHIRON (in ARIES 2019 – 2027) who’s presently stationary-slow, to go retro on July 11 – Bringing out the Medicine of the NOW. 
The MARS – CHIRON encounter is scheduled for July 14 – but the energy is activated already July 11 / 12 (when the MOON will be in ARIES too, and ‘ushers’ MARS into ARIES) and extends easily to July 19 – just before the late CANCER New Moon on July 20.
What’s going on, with MARS – CHIRON – MOON in ARIES?
Raw and vulnerable experiences and feelings can be triggered – and they can take us to find our Inner Medicine of being truly present and authentically HERE in this Life, and in this Time. There’s only the NOW. How do you show up?

 

CHIRON Retro ‘Syndromes’

With CHIRON going retro (each year for 5 months, these years July – Dec) we’re called to go backward to trace early wounds (ARIES relates to the beginning of Life – even literally Baby stage) that we might have internalized. 
And to find the Medicine that meets those wounds.

Examples:

  • Feeling left alone – being all by yourself.
  • Needing to assert yourself to be noticed.
  • Being in an aggressive-stressful environment – possibly experienced like a ‘war zone’.
  • Being with a family / parent who’s all new to parenting and ‘makes it up as s/he goes’ – which can of course be stressful for the baby.

 

This is the month (also with MERCURY now retro in caring CANCER – coming out of retro on July 12, but still in slow ‘U-turn storm’ until July 20) to meet and dialogue with the ‘early YOU’ with compassion, checking in how his / her Start in Life has caused wounds that still inform his / her present stage, what is needed to heal those wounds, and how ‘walking with the wounds’ have brought Medicine for yourself and for others.

Susan Boulet – Shaman

What I’m also learning is that CHIRON in ARIES, esp. in its retro movement, has to do with Healing early stages in Humanity that created the seed of what needs to change now.
And re-connecting with the Medicine of earlier phases in History, as in: Ancient / early Shamans.

How does that resonate in you?

 

Many Blessings for the Medicine in / as YOU!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS 

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.
Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with 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!

 

 

MARS in ARIES for more than 6 Months (June 27 – Jan 7!) – Take Initiative with New Vigour & Vitality!

29 Jun

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Friends,

 

MARS now in ARIES – and for a loooong time (June 27 – Jan 7)!
Kicking fully in tomorrow Tue / MARS-Day June 30 – with the Moon in SCO (which used to be ruled by Mars) – outer shifts & calls to action and deeper transformation are well under way.

 

Hopefully you could surf the waves of Oneness and surrender in the letting go / rolling-out phase with MARS in PISCES since MAY 12 (if you like, check in retrospect the blog post for that phase)….
Yet, there’s been also lots of overwhelm esp via the media, met with passivity or escapism, and the alike.

But hey, now!
Are you ready to come out of that groove, get into gears and into action for the Summer and way beyond?
Noticing renewed vigor & vitality, and that it’s time to DO something about something? Good!

Let Your Inner Super Hero/ine and Activist emerge! Here’s a thought & spirit provoking short video apropos: Re-activating the Inner Hero/ine.

 

MARS (Hubble Space Telescope)

MARS now freshly in its own sign ARIES since June 27 is kicking us in the butt to emerge a-NEW and take initiative for the NEW!


The springy Life Force awakens, desire and passion are reborn.

MARS will be in ARIES for an extremely long time – until January 7, 2021!


That’s more than 1/2 year – unheard-of! The ‘usual’ for MARS to be in a sign is 2 months.

How come?
You guessed it:
MARS will go retro, Sept 9 – Nov 13.

More about MARS retro in a blog article closer to the date, specifically dedicated to it.

 

All the forward-backward-forward motion from Earth perspective will be completely in ARIES (MARS doesn’t move over into another sign before or during retro).
Pretty unusual:
The last time MARS was in its own sign ARIES and going retro was almost exactly 32 years ago, July 1988 to Jan 1989, with the retro phase end of Aug to end of Oct 1988 (when it did go back to the ‘tail end’ of PISCES).

That was just before the Berlin Wall came down (Nov 1989) and the Eastern European Communist-Socialist dictatures started to crumble (well, SATURN – URANUS – NEPTUNE in CAP, opposed by JUPITER in CANCER in 1989 had to do with that too…).

If you happen to have been born during that specific time:
Listen up & show up. This one’s esp. for you – for sure!

And for all of us with ‘something’ (SUN, MOON, AC, Nodes, Planets) in ARIES – that gets activated and needs to kick into gear.

MARS rules ARIES – a drive to take action & initiative, to start something new, be assertive, and ‘just do it’ (rather than dreaming / visualizing / talking….), a boost for everything dynamic. Things can move fast, with MARS in ARIES.

What do you want?
What’s the 1st step?
Go for it!

 

But wait a minute – MARS will go retro in that energy too – calling us to find our inner motivation and desire first – to make sure actions aren’t ego driven or otherwise not in alignment and balance with Soul & Spirit (indicated by the opposition of MARS with the SUN in LIBRA, on the half-way point of MARS Retro which will be reached on Oct 13).
Well, and it’s about ‘RE-calibrating the Masculine’ which I’m sure you’ve read or heard somewhere in the Astro ether, cuz… that’s what astrologers like to call it.
But hey, what does that mean to YOU? ARIES is about the original, authentic, autonomous Self. No cookie cutter life whatsoever… rather make it up as you go.

Be an expression of your Highest Self – call it: Be in your intrinsic SuperPower / use your best inner resources (PLUTO in CAP which MARS in ARIES will square / challenge 3 times,  pre-, during, and post-retro), and bring that to the table of Humanity – when if not NOW?!

 

When MARS goes retro in ARIES in dynamic tension with the SUN in LIBRA it can also bring out old, unresolved battles for fairness and justice – in relation to governmental / hierarchical ‘old world’ structures / where the Old Empires expire – as the SUN – MARS opposition will (esp. under the LIBRA New Moon on Oct 16) extend into a T-square to JUPITER, stationary PLUTO, and SATURN end of CAP.
Yet, rather than fighting against (with the problem of still feeding the ‘monster’) the old (MARS retro)… how do we invest our energy into constructively & innovatively co-building (CAP) the New (ARIES)?

 

 

There’s SO much to this MARS in ARIES – esp. in its alignments with CHIRON, LILITH, and ERIS – a ‘dwarf planet’ and in mythology the Goddess of discord and sister of belligerent MARS who’s been in ARIES since 1922(!) and will be until 2040. More about ‘her’ below in the MARS – ERIS paragraph.

And to MARS’s double square with JUPITER on Aug 4 & Oct 18, and triple square with PLUTO (MARS’s transpersonal ‘higher octave’) on Aug 13, Oct 9, and Dec 23.
Both JUPITER & PLUTO are this year travelling in close proximity in CAP and aligning 3 times (Apr 4, June 29, and Nov 12).
Big Revelations of Shadow – esp. the abuse of power, destructive / unwise use of time and resources, and leadership out of integrity. Leading to Big & Deep Transformation, esp. when it comes to established, hierarchical power structures or otherwise ‘old world empires’.
The dynamic is already playing out via the CAP – CANCER Full Moon / PLE on July 4 / 5, which comes with a sharp cardinal T-square to MARS / CHIRON / LILITH in ARIES. No boredom.
Stay tuned for the Eclipse blog article!

 

 

What does MARS in ARIES bring?

 

  • New vitality and Spring-like energy is emerging and arising – it all starts HERE!
    If you’ve been sick and weakened, you get a boost of energy, esp. if you have SUN, MOON, Nodes, AC or Planets in ARIES. MARS is natural in its ARIES domain, as a survivor, an ‘energizer bunny’, and ‘he’ comes to life when battling the elements.
  • Fast actions and reactions.
  • People can get quite angry and upset (esp. with MERCURY squaring MARS on July 8 & 27) – no more PISCEAN tolerating – can be a fired-up and confrontational period, with MARS in ARIES. Better to channel the energy into action – find healthy outlets. 
  • Our inner Super Hero/ine wants to be launched.
  • Do something productive with that energy! What matters is to pro-actively get going – better than resisting and fighting.
  • If it ‘doesn’t work out, not to worry. ARIES gets up and starts again, in a new way. Like a toddler learning to walk, with natural instinct and trust.

 

Aries Ram by Khairzul MG – Fine Art America

This is OUR Time & Life.

Let’s not postpone or give up but do something exciting with the Time and Energy we have here!
MARS in ARIES gets the ball rolling, and brings fresh energy & vitality for getting going, and taking action…

…esp. after the FULL MOON / Partial Lunar Release Eclipse in CAP – CAN  with JUPITER-PLUTO and SATURN, on July 4 / 5 (last Eclipse in a long time with CAP SUN or MOON on the South Node Release Point) which calls us to be done with and give a good farewell to heavy, depressing, burdening, judgmental, repressive energy of the ‘Old Empire’ that’s expiring now / the ‘old operating system’ that’s ‘security’ / fear & control based to make room for showing up, and doing what really matters, in a new and ALIVE way.

Once the SUN in CANCER will pass the opposition point with SATURN retro back in late CAP on July 20 – the ‘blue’ CANCER New Moon (by then MERCURY is also out of retro), it’ll be easier to move with a clear and conscious Spirit facing what appeared as obstacles, fears, judgments, and old blockages, to stand in our authority and have agency (ha, no more excuses…).

MARS will be in ARIES until Jan 7, 2021!
Get going, Amigos & Amigas!

 

Which Planetary Combos & Dynamics are up, with MARS in ARIES?

A lot & and intensely so – given the 1/2 year RAMification activation!

 

  • For starters, MERCURY in CANCER will square MARS in ARIES on July 8 while in retro (until July 12) – and again out of retro on July 27.
    Good to channel angry thoughts and words into checking in with our needs, and being kind and pro-active, rather than going into a verbal war / taking it out on others.
    Later this year, MERCURY in LIBRA will oppose MARS retro in ARIES, on Sept 24. Negotiation and win-win rather than ‘old battle mode’.

 

  • Soon after the first MERCURY square, MARS in ARIES will meet ‘Wounded Healer / Teacher’ CHIRON (in ARIES 2019 – 2027) who’s presently stationary-slow, to go retro on July 11 – Bringing out the Medicine of the NOW.
    The MARS – CHIRON encounter is scheduled for July 14 – but the energy is activated already July 11 / 12 (when the MOON will be in ARIES too, and ‘ushers’ MARS into ARIES) and extends easily to July 19 – just before the late CANCER New Moon on July 20.
    What’s going on, with MARS – CHIRON – MOON in ARIES?
    Raw and vulnerable experiences and feelings can be triggered – and they can take us to find our Inner Medicine of being truly present and authentically HERE in this Life, and in this Time. There’s only the NOW. How do you show up?

 

  • Next up: MARS will encounter ‘Wild’ LILITH (in ARIES this year too, Jan 27 – Oct 21) twice: On Aug 10 when in forward motion, and again during MARS retro, on Sept 23.
    The second super charge of LILITH while in ARIES, just after Fall Equinox – the first was the Spring Equinox ARIES New Moon with LILITH & CHIRON on March 24 – when the ‘Wild & New’ began…
    A ‘wild & fierce & raw’ energy for sure.
    What’s cooking and showing up? An up-rising?
    Our wild and unconditioned / untameable, indomitable side is activated as rarely otherwise.

    LILITH is in ARIES every 9 years, for 9 months, and the chances for Her to get activated by MARS twice are super rare (remember, MARS was the last time retro in ARIES in 1988 / 89).
    The fact that MARS will meet LILITH again when in retro shows there’s more to the activation & coming alive of what’s Raw & Wild – in alignment with Spirit and Life Force (not ego).

 

One of ERIS’s glyphs – representing her discordant nature quite well

  • Also in ARIES – and often ignored (well, that’s tragically-fittingly aligned with Her Archetype) – and met by MARS 3 times: on Aug 15 (MARS direct), Oct 6 (MARS retro), and Dec 22 (MARS direct): ERIS.
    She’s the most massive and second-largest ‘dwarf planet’ known in the Solar System, and was given this astronomical status in 2006 (originally named ‘Planet X’ / ‘Xena’).
    This happened in the process when PLUTO was demoted as a Planet – while in late SAG, the Galactic Centre(!).
    The Planetary Archetype PLUTO btw is of course well and alive, regenerated (can’t demote Archetypes arbitrarily…), and in the meantime seen in a new light through the New Horizons space mission cameras, with first close-ups from Pluto in 2015.

    Since ERIS has almost the same diameter as PLUTO, and size matters for astronomical classifications, if PLUTO had retained its Planet status, ERIS and CERES had to be reclassified as Planets too which the astronomical community / consciousness wasn’t ready for.

    Regardless of her astronomical ‘status’, ERIS came into collective consciousness in those years.

    ERIS has a highly elliptical orbit that takes her 558 years around the SUN – more than twice as long as far-out PLUTO (248 years).
    She’s been in ARIES for a super long time, since 1922, until 2040 – for most of us our entire life time.
    Even if you have ‘nothing in ARIES’ you do: ERIS
    (showing how you respond to / with that Archetype!).

    Who / what / which Archetype actually is ERIS, and how does She show up now personally and societally?
    The rather unevolved role of the ERIS Archetype – the Greek goddess of discord & strife – seeds disruption and separation, is vengeful and confrontational.
    We’ve seen a lot of polarization and discord in Humanity lately (triggered through the Corona Crisis – hmm, the ‘Coronation’ theme is very symbolic for the ERIS Archetype too – don’t give sovereignty away!) as the massive 2020 Stellium of the Titans, JUPITER – PLUTO – SATURN end of CAP moved into square with ERIS – who is presently (these years) between 23 – 24º ARIES!
    Why all that discord & strive?
    Because she’s not welcome at the table / not invited to the ‘ceremony’.
    So much conflict nowadays, as the socio-political Plutocratic (literally: rulership of the wealthy) 1% elite / supremacy (CAP shadow) is playing their exclusive ‘game’ in the old and dying hierarchical top-down world, at the expense / exclusion of ‘regular people’ and esp: minorities who feel left out of the ‘democratic’ decision making process.
    Prime examples of large scale collective seeding of discord and separation has happened via the media / social media and their deceptive / programming potential and via ‘disruptive technology’ that started to kick in big time when URANUS in late ARIES met ERIS – 2016 / 17 – only every about 85 years – and which can be abused in so many ways…

 

ERIS – Antikensammlung Berlin

Mythological ERIS is the sister of MARS / ARES.

In Greek Mythology,
“She stirs up jealousy and envy to cause fighting and anger among men.
At the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, all the Gods were invited with the exception of Eris, and, enraged at her exclusion, she spitefully caused a quarrel among the Goddesses that led to the Trojan War.”

Here’s where ERIS can evolve, according to Doug Walker in this excellent ERIS intro article:
“If the ERIS Archetype is developed fully, humanity may never have to experience war again. The feminine ERIS will balance the aggression of MARS. A well developed ERIS Archetype could banish all war. The ancient prophesy of swords turned into plowshares could be realized.”
Esp. with MARS going retro in ARIES this year: No more war!

ERIS’s Archetype shows also how ‘small things’ can lead to major effects.
May the combo of ERIS & MARS show how the sum of small determined actions (not: upset re-actions) can help shift global consciousness and move us into the NEW Way of Being with one another on this Planet Home!

And may MARS moving now through ARIES and meeting ERIS three times this year, pre-, during, and post-retro, on Aug 15, Oct 6, and Dec 22 give ERIS a boost to be adamant, show up and stand up and fight – with our best resources (JUPITER / PLUTO / SATURN in CAP) – in an empowering and transformational way!

 

May CHIRON now in ARIES, and approaching ERIS (exact in 2025, and in the making) help with healing what makes war possible!

 

  • So, MARS in ARIES will on Aug 10 – 15 and in retro on Sept 23 – Oct 6 meet LILITH and ERIS.
    While LILITH – every 9 years – meets ERIS in ARIES end of Aug / early Sept 2020, and all 3 will square PLUTO & SATURN end of CAP.

    A highly charged time. May it be worked out in a productive and effective way, for the benefit of us individually (ARIES) and for society. May responsibility & integrity be restored!

 

  • Also promisingly brought to our awareness via the Sabian Symbol of the degree where MARS goes retro on Sept 9.

    ARIES 28°: “A LARGE AUDIENCE CONFRONTS THE PERFORMER WHO DISAPPOINTED ITS EXPECTATIONS.

    KEYNOTE: The necessity for mature preparation and self-criticism.

    We see here the tangible results of the situation evoked by the two preceding symbols. Great hopes, excited expectations cannot be sustained. The last symbol reveals the performer’s state of consciousness; in this one he is actually made fully aware of having promised – to the many elements of his own personality as well as perhaps to other human beings – more than he was able to deliver. The issue is how to handle this situation. In one form or another, it is an often recurring situation in the life of an individual person. The manner in which it is met determines the individual’s future possibilities of development and achievement.

    This is the third stage of this five-fold sequence. What is implied here is the need to be more than “obsessed by potentiality” and subjectively involved in the use of the new powers. The objective results have to be considered, i.e. what this use will do. The individual is not alone concerned, for in a sense mankind as a whole will be affected. What is required, therefore, is an objective inclusiveness of the whole environment; thus a sense of RESPONSIBILITY for what one’s actions will produce in people who have been made to expect significant results.”

    The 3 days from MARS going retro on 09/09/2020(!) to Sept 12, when JUPITER goes out of retro will be the peak of Retro Planets this year (and the most I’ve seen in my 20-year professional practice) – SEVEN simultaneously!
    August / Sept / Oct with 6 & 7 Planets retro will be a pivotal time of the year, to regenerate from within in so many ways – which can help us / is necessary even, to change course on the ‘outside’.

 

  • More super significant MARS activations:
    MARS squares 2 / 3 times JUPITER & PLUTO which are close together end of CAP this year, and themselves go into triple conjunction with each other (Apr 4, today June 29 while both are retro, and Nov 12).
    Big time revelation & big transformation when it comes to deep pervasive CAP shadow (corruption, abuse of power & authority in institutions, governments, societal structures, hierarchies, old world leadership / ‘Old Empires’).

    MARS still going direct will square JUPITER retro on Aug 4, and MARS retro will square JUPITER going direct on Oct 18.
    MARS direct will square PLUTO retro on Aug 13, MARS retro will square stationary PLUTO (going on Oct 4 out of retro) on Oct 9, and MARS post-retro / direct will square PLUTO direct on Dec 23 – just 2 days after the JUPITER – SATURN conjunction at Winter Solstice 2020 on the 1st degree of AQ where a new 20-year socio-political-economical cycle starts.

    Now, that’s a LOT and intense.

    And it all happens over the ‘hot phase’ of the U.S. Elections, and while the U.S. have the first phase of their 1st PLUTO Return in history – PLUTO comes back to the position where it was in 1776 – technically 2021 – 22 but that’s already in the making (and unmistakably in effect).
    Looks like an epic challenge of Heroes and ‘Titans’ / Tyrants, a battle facing Oligarchy (rulership of the few) / Plutocracy (rulership of the wealthy).

    So important for all of us Humans to activate not just our inner Hero/ine and show up / stand up, but to activate our ‘SuperPowers’ / connect with the Power of Soul & Essence / Core – ultimate & unalienable source of Power and Guidance (PLUTO – JUPITER).

    And when it comes to the U.S. PLUTO Return: May the Core & Soul of the Country regenerate, and may the essence of the Constitution be restored and its Spirit evolved into this time.

 

  • Lastly & full circle (how apt):
    MARS in ARIES makes 2 contacts with SATURN, when entering ARIES and when SATURN goes direct.
    On June 28, the day after MARS enters ARIES, it went right away into a sextile with SATURN retro which was at the entry point of AQ (where JUPITER will align with SATURN on Winter Solstice!) – just before it went back to its domain CAP (July 1 – Dec 16), for ‘unfinished business’ there.
    Supportive for social activism that’s FOR rather than against.

    Exactly 3 months later, on Sept 29 (SATURN Day – with its 29-year cycle) – the day after SATURN goes direct, hence will be a crucial stationary ‘anchor’ V.I.P. (very important Planet) end of Sept / early Oct, MARS retro in its own sign ARIES will square SATURN in its own sign CAP.

    Looks like at the initial ‘friendly’ contact end of June shows us where future oriented actions & possibilities for responsible collaboration lay.
    Whereas during the sharp second contact end of Sept old unresolved conflicts need to be worked out first before decisive moving forward is practically doable (even though the urge is there).

 

Since there are so many specific alignments from / to MARS while it’s in ARIES for more than 6 months it’s only reasonable and common sense not to lay them all out here chronologically (a SATURN thing), because it would be overwhelming for me to compose them and for you to process them all.
I rather pooled them up above in thematic groups of MARS meeting the various Planetary Archetypes, and hope you find that helpful.

Of course, you can find the specific transit alignments from and to MARS in the Cosmic Calendar of my email ASTRO~NEWS which goes out to subscribers (email me if you’d like to be on the list: licht@islandnet.com) before every New Moon and Full Moon.

 

As mentioned, stay tuned for a special ASTRO~News blog article re: MARS Retro (Sept 9 – Nov 13), closer to September.

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?
And – a la GEMINI – Astrology is a fascinating language, and there’s so much to learn from / with it.
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

2019 Summer Retro Window

13 Aug

The New MOON in LEO on July 31 / Aug 1 CAT-alyzed a Retro Window of 5 – 6 Planets (until Sept 18 / Oct 2 when SATURN & PLUTO go direct again)! 
Not quite like the RETRO Record Summer 2018 with Seven Planets Retro.

But still – also this Summer 2019, with 5 – 6 Planets simultaneously retro we’re been called to go backwards / inwards, to REsolve and RElease, esp. when it comes to old low and unconscious perhaps karmically ‘inherited’ vibrations of… 

Brief RE-view – since it’s out of post-retro ‘storm’ now:
MERCURY in LEO / CANCER (retro July 7 – 31):
Old mental patterns that revolve around oneself, perhaps in dramatic- narcissistic ways. Going in circles, regressing into previous stages of life, living in our memories.

JUPITER in mid SAG (retro since Apr 10 – just turned direct on Aug 11):
Old stories and beliefs that shape our philosophy and outlook on life.

SATURN in mid CAP (retro Apr 29 – Sept 18):
Old REpetitive patterns, karma, blocks and obstacles, being stuck in (self) judgment, taking too much on, carrying too much, being the scapegoat.

CHIRON in early AR (retro July 8 – Dec 12):
Old stressful early life wounds / survival mode wounds.

URANUS in early TAU (just went retro Aug 11 – Jan 10, 2020):
Old attachments and sticky habits that prevent us from embodying our true freedom.

NEPTUNE in mid PI (retro June 21 – Nov 27):
Old overwhelm, confusion, delusions, addictions, feeling victimized, and ways of ‘checking out’ and giving up.

PLUTO in later CAP (retro Apr 24 – Oct 2):
Old (outer and inner) control patterns, old oppressive and abusive powers that prevent us from being in our true Power.

 

12 Olympians – which direction are the Planetary Gods & Goddesses going?

 

.…and find through re-visiting and re-leasing from the ‘inside-out’ more conscious vibrations. as in:

MERCURY in CANCER / LEO:
Being compassionate and caring with ourselves, maybe even going back to our Baby self and the messages s/he received, giving her / him extra care, and showing her / him how loved and welcome s/he is, helps us to express and show ourselves lovingly, passionately, creatively, and heart-fully.

JUPITER in mid SAG:
Finding the Truth about our Gratitude for Life, our Belief in Ourselves, and Walking the Path of Love.

SATURN in mid CAP:
Standing in our Authority & Values, prioritizing what matters most, lightening the load, and working with our Best.

CHIRON in early AR:
The ‘wound’ carries the Medicine. When we experience ourselves as standing alone facing the collective it also brings out the Medicine of being Authentic.

URANUS in early TAU:
Being free from attachments (to habits, stuff, location) leads to emBodying Freedom in so many ways…

NEPTUNE in mid PI:
Dropping into Unity Consciousness, in the Unified Field.

PLUTO in later CAP:
Empowered by and for Evolution.

 

Wishing you well in the Retro Summer 2019!

CHIRON goes retro in early ARIES (July 8 – Dec 12) – Healing through Inner Medicine and Authenticity

7 Jul

Can you feel it?
It’s a CHIRON-ic week and month, dear Astro~News Reader!

Quick flash-back for context:
After some back-and-forth last year, CHIRON crossed over the Spring Equinox a.k.a. ‘Emergence’ Point on FEB 18, to ‘Come Alive’ in ARIES.
Here’s a link to the blog post for CHIRON’s entry into ARIES – The Medicine of Being Authentically YOU.
CHIRON in ARIES connects us with the Medicine of being authentic!
And in Society, we see brave Young Warriors showing up for their Future, showing us:
The Time to act is NOW.

 

Howzit going thus far, with CHIRON in ARIES?

Here are some themes you might recognize, esp. if YOU have early ARIES SUN / MOON / AC, or Planets – or even CHIRON (born 1968 / 69):

  • All is fresh, raw, and NEW in ARIES.
  • Doing something for the first time – setting a precedent for yourself – try it on!
  • Even if you don’t have partners or allies, going ahead by yourself anyway can be healing.
  • Being in a New World.
  • Finding the Medicine of being Authentically YOU!
  • Emerging from the Collective Consciousness.
  • Taking Initiative.

Which all can be scary, and / or hugely liberating.

 

CHIRON the Centaur turned Warrior

CHIRON brings up ‘wounds’ and awkwardness, and we feel like an outsider – in ARIES when we show up or stand up for ourselves, and for what matters to us.

It might be also awkward if we didn’t have role models, or their teachings don’t apply to THIS. 

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

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

Show up in a new way, try out what you haven’t before, not in a long time, or don’t have a ‘model’ or comparison for. If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES doesn’t mind starting anew). The essence of being innovative.
Anger (an ARIES expression) can be your vulnerability (incl. passive-aggressive modes if anger isn’t / wasn’t ok) yet also guide you to your Medicine.
MARS, the ruler of ARIES now in brave and self-loving LEO (since July 1), and in the first half of July close to MERCURY (which is retro since today July 7) can help with bravely facing old anger (maybe where there hasn’t been enough self love).

Those of you born with CHIRON in ARIES (Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977) know a bit (or a lot) about the CHIRONic side described above…
For you, round age 50 CHIRON will make its Return, and your ‘original wound / Medicine’ comes full circle.
All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in early ARIES (or triggered by it, in LIBRA, CAN or CAP) we’ll get a CHIRON ‘kick’ too, to step forward, authentically as we are, esp. in the area of life related to our ARIES House in the chart:

ARIES in your…

1st House:
How You show up –
BE Yourself.

2nd House:
What you have and Value –
Innovation, Originality, Courage to go ahead.

3rd House:
Your Environment –
Dynamic, never boring, assertive?

4th House:
Your Home –
Ever new, and ‘on the go’.

5th House:
Your Creativity –
You’re a Pioneer? – Try yourself out in a new way.

6th House:
Your Work and Health –
Assert Yourself in a healthy way. Do your own thing.

7th House:
Your Significant Others –
Do you attract dynamic, assertive, aggressive People? What does that say about you? Where is now the Medicine in relationships?

8th House:
Your deep Involvement and Transformations –
Be the Hero in this.

9th House:
Your Travels and Worldviews –
You go, Grrrl / Man!

10th House:
Your Calling and Purpose –
Autonomy and Newness

11th House:
Your Community –
Warriors and Individualists

12th House:
Your Oneness with ALL –
Always in the NOW.

 

With CHIRON now going retro (each year for 5 months, nowadays July – Dec) we’re called to go backward to trace early wounds (ARIES relates to the beginning of Life – even literally Baby state) that we might have internalized. 
And to find the Medicine that meets those wounds.

Examples:

  • Feeling left alone – being all by yourself.
  • Needing to assert yourself to be noticed.
  • Being in an aggressive-stressful environment – possibly experienced by the baby like a ‘war zone’.
  • Being with a family / parent who’s all new to parenting and ‘makes it up as s/he goes’ – which can of course be stressful for the baby.

This is the month (also with MERCURY now retro and going back into caring CANCER) to meet and dialogue with the ‘early YOU’ with compassion, checking in how his / her Start in Life has caused wounds that still inform his / her present stage, what is needed to heal those wounds, and how ‘walking with the wounds’ have brought Medicine for yourself and for others.

Susan Boulet – Shaman

What I’m also learning is that CHIRON in ARIES, esp. in its retro movement, has to do with Healing early stages in Humanity that created the seed of what needs to change now.
As well as re-connecting with the Medicine of earlier phases in History, as in: Ancient / early Shamans.

How does that resonate in you?

 

Many Blessings for the Medicine of / in YOU!

May the 4th Mid-TAURUS New Moon with URANUS – New EarthBody Consciousness

3 May

Dear Cosmic Friends, emBodied on Planet Earth!

Being Children of the Earth, inhabiting an EarthBody, and being exposed to the Earth changes hits home for us these years of acute awareness and urgency to truly treat the Earth as our Home (rather than an exploitation ground).

Camas Field Bounty – Photo by Melanie 2019

 

Earth My Body!
Here’s the video of the song sung so powerfully by young Spirit Elder Nicole Sangsuree  – what a legacy before her body was taken back by the Earth, in Thailand!

 

TAURUS is the first Earth sign in the yearly cosmic cycle.
Nature has awakened, and the EARTH delights all our senses, and is ripe for seeding & planting.

The MOON is exalted in TAURUS – so nourishing and comforting and feeding.
The mid-TAU (14°10′) New MOON on May the 4th is in mid-TAU (double TAU) – full-on Beltane energy!
Happy Beltane Week!

In the centre of the fixed signs (TAU, LEO, SCO, AQ) are the ‘Gates of Power’ where energy concentrates. Let’s work well with the Power of the Earth and the Earth in us.
May the Power be IN us – it IS, as we are of the Earth!

 

Green Unfurling – Photo by Melanie 2019


Gardening and planting can be the perfect body-mind-ground wellness practice for starters, and to bring the EarthBody Consciousness right home!

Where mid-TAU is in your birth chart it points you to the area in your life that’s now primed for a conception (MOON/SUN, Yin-Yang). 

BE both active in the ‘planting’ and receptive for what is being planted in you.

 

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

3rd House:
You in Your Local Environment

4th House:
You and Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

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

6th House:
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House:
Your Partners & Significant Others

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

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

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

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

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


The TAURUS New Moon on May 4 is close to URANUS –

Wake UP, Earthlings!

Earth is our Mother.
A Renaissance of Earth Consciousness.

Here’s the in-depth article dedicated to URANUS in TAURUS.

 

TAURUS is the Zodiac energy relating to Mother Earth with her Beauty and Bounty, and where we appreciate our precious human embodiment.

And clearly:
The Earth doesn’t belong to us.
We belong to the Earth.

The Spirit of URANUS in TAU also brings a Renaissance of Back to Nature / incl. to communal farming, and a sharing economy.
More and more people opt out of the status quo of destroying Nature in so many ways, and consuming de-natured food. A big trend to have more freedom while working and living with Nature, not at the expense of the Earth.

The Earth herself might release lots of built-up stress and pressure.
The Kilauea quake and volcanic eruption in May 2018, just before URANUS entered TAU for the first time was a precursor… see the blog post: The Ancient, Sacred Earth showing her Power.

Wake-up calls is what URANUS is famous for.
Freedom from complacency, indulgence, and taking wayyy too much time (shadows of TAU), and Freedom for a new Earth Awareness.
We really can’t wait another decade or 5 to do anything about getting our act together (is also what SATURN and PLUTO in CAP say).

The Awakening to a new Earth Awareness, reflected through URANUS in TAU will affect food, money / value exchange, and economy / ecology, and calls for innovative solutions in a volatile world.

 

Orangutans Smell da Roses…

 

Our connectedness with all of Earth’s Beings is being (re)awakened now (if it hasn’t already) – which spurs us into action and can shake others up too.
Perhaps to stand up, rise up, and speak up for those sentient Beings who can’t speak for themselves and need to be protected before it’s too late.

 

Loving this quote by Eckhart Tolle (from: A New Earth):
“Once there is a certain degree of Presence, of still and alert attention in human beings’ perceptions, they can sense the divine life essence, the one indwelling consciousness or spirit in every creature, every life-form, recognize it as one with their own essence and so love it as themselves.”
Being Awake in our True Nature, as Nature, in Nature.

 

How about taking some sweet time for a little TAUREAN inquiry:

  • Where do you stand in this?
  • What has shaken you up and is shifting for you?
  • How do you find comfort in the unpredictable?
  • Underneath a societally-economically conditioned consumer mentality – what truly feeds you and gives you comfort?
  • What’s new and freeing in your relationship to Mother Nature?

 

Those of you born with URANUS in SCO (Dec 1974 – Apr 1975, and Sept 1975 – Nov 1981) will have their URANUS Opposition in the years of URANUS in TAU – an awakening / liberation in mid-life which can be a huge catalyst for radical life changes.

All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in TAURUS (or in LEO, SCO, AQ) are in for surprises too, and we’ll get a Uranian ‘kick in the butt’ to be liberated and reinvent ourselves esp. in the area of life related to our TAURUS House in the chart.

 

Let’s take a good look at the

TAURUS NEW MOON ‘birth chart’

The New Moon will be exact at 3:45 pm PDT tomorrow May 4.

 

The NEW MOON in very central TAURUS is past URANUS (well, the SUN connected with URANUS on Apr 22, and the MOON today May 3).

SUN and MOON and all Planets entering TAURUS from now on, until 2026 are being initiated by URANUS.

Finding and standing our ground when it comes to unsettling, unpredictable energies, esp. relating to the Earth herself…
And perhaps on a more personal note:

  • How can we find comfort in the constant shifts that take us out of our comfort zone – or even pro-actively seek the edge rather the cushioning?
  • Can we sloooww down and listen with all our senses, while things are whirling?
  • What does our EarthBody call us to – when we’re in full Presence?

Being in Nature as Nature brings shifts in Consciousness.

Again, if you’d like to read up the URANUS in TAURUS Astro~News – voila!

The New Moon is in wide Earth Trine with SATURN / PLUTO retro and the South Node, all in CAP.
Lots of Earth energy nowadays (and counting, as MERCURY & VENUS will also enter TAU).
Showing us quite realistically where timely priorities are, supporting resourcefulness and integrity yet also teaching us not to get attached to certain outcomes, or dragged down by and depressed over what we can’t change.
The point being: Finding the Inner Power centre (not just on May the 4th…) that helps us move with change, and bring out our best.

 


The Mercurial Inner Messenger / Communicator / Mind Archetype, is about to settle in TAURUS too on May 6, until May 22!

What an animated, activated, and accelerated phase it’s been, with MERCURY and also VENUS in ARIES since Apr 16 / 20.
And on top of it, MERCURY in ARIES (ruled by MARS) has been in mutual reception with MARS in GEMINI (ruled by MERCURY).
Ready to mentally settle, after all the rush and action?

 

Buuut, MERCURY will pass unpredictable and not-at-all settled URANUS  first – right at the Taurean entrance ‘gate’ on May 8.

Plus, even though MERCURY is in slooow TAURUS it’s moving quite fast now, approaching its connection with the SUN on May 21 – also the day when both the SUN and MERCURY enter GEMINI. That’s the point furthest away from Mercury retro / right between retro phases.

Some paradoxes right there – only for the linear, habitual mind, wondering… 
How does that go together?
And what are the gifts of that ‘strange’ combo?

Here’s the full article for MERCURY in TAURUS
noteworthy esp. for all of us with TAURUS in our birth charts, and an incentive for all of us to think about our true values…

 

VENUS isn’t quite there yet, but scheduled to enter (her domain of) TAURUS also, on May 15.
A saving grace for enjoying life’s delights, and being even more aware of what we value.
Then, becoming a magnet for our values is quite natural (as long as limiting beliefs and lack of self value aren’t in the way).

For now / with the New Moon, VENUS in ARIES goes into T-square with SATURN & PLUTO retro, and the South Node, all in CAP & the North Node in CAN (May 7 – 9).
It can be a bit bumpy when we’re taking initiative and put out what we love and value – not all is met and reciprocated. Don’t take it as a personal rejection, failure, or defeat, and cut back on judgment.
VENUS in ARIES is a heroine energy – and ‘she’s the apex / outlet of the T-Square, looking for dynamic expression:
If approach A doesn’t work she gets up and starts a different approach. Hopefully with gentleness, care, and compassion, as the North Node in CANCER would support.

 

Also in the NEW MOON ‘matrix’:

MARS in GEMINI (still until May 14) is building up to oppose JUPITER now retro in SAG (exact on May 5).
Sooo many options, so much information, so many ideas, doubts, questions, and thoughts, and soo much distraction – where’s the Inner Heart Truth?

What do your Intuition, Trust, and Inner Guidance say?
Helpful to retreat and gain some space. Go on a vision quest.
Find your Inner WHY, and the direction becomes naturally clear.
It IS a Journey from the Head to the Heart.

 

In the cosmic watery atmosphere, we have

NEPTUNE in PISCES, with a Water Trine from the North Node in CANCER (exact throughout June), suggesting surrender, compassion, adaptation, flow, letting go & letting god. Faith beyond trust.


…and LILITH having just entered PISCES today
May 3 (until Jan 27, 2020) – Our True Nature is Wild and ONE.
Here’s the full article for LILITH now in PI.

 

A ‘wild card’ of the New Moon energy is CHIRON, freshly in ARIES, and presently not connected with any other planetary Archetype, except with the MOON when She goes into a new Zodiac sign.
An unaspected Planet can be like an outsider of the family / group with a strong desire to be oneself rather than ‘being nice’ to hopefully get love and appreciation. Now we see how fake / compensated this is, and that we’re only healthy when we’re true to ourselves.

I’ve found since CHIRON fully entered ARIES (on Feb 18 – here’s the full article for this shift), early childhood wounds are coming up a lot for clients, and for lots of us Humans, I should say.
The Medicine being to meet them with full presence, regardless how raw this may be, and to let these wounds help you draw out the authentic YOU.

Cuz it’s YOUR Life after all….

 

Hoping this TAURUS NEW MOON Article helps affirm your Authentic Self.

Blessings for EmBodying the True & Free YOU!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

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

 

Presently, until May 12 / Mother’s Day, ASTRO~SPA for Moms is on!
As a mom, treat yourself, or treat a mom to a 20% discounted Astro~Alchemy session!

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

17 Apr

Dear Astro~News Friends!


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

 

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

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

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


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

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

 

And now for a refreshing shift and lift!

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

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

All things are NEW and freshly Alive in ARIES.

 

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

 

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

Butterflybaby

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

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

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

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

And NOW for the NEW!

First Flight

First Flight, Photographer unknown

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Breathing, breathing, breathing with the Energy!

 

MERCURY contacts these other Planetary Archetypes while in ARIES: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Primavera – by Italian Renaissance painter G. Arcimboldo

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

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

Time for the New Feminine to emerge!

 

Here are the Planet Dates for VENUS in ARIES:

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

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

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

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

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

 

Where in your chart is ARIES?


That’s where rebirth and fresh beginnings beckon!

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

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

18 Mar

Happy Equinox, dear Astro Friends!

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

Back to the EQUINOX FULL MOON:

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

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

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

 

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

FREE to BE!

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

How can that come in, in your Life?

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

Wall St. Bull Sculpture

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

Blessings for the Fullness of the New Season!
Melanie

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

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

18 Mar

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

Happy New Year, dear Astrology Friends!

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

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


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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

FREE to BE!

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

MARS in TAURUS – the Cosmic Gardener – brings Earth Trine support to the CAP Concentration of Old (SATURN / SN / PLUTO) – the MARS – PLUTO alignment is exact on March 20 too, and active all week.
Slowly, steadily planting new seeds that outgrow the ‘wintry conditions’ and cultivating the transformation…
How can that come in, in your Life?

Here comes Aries.

PISCES New Moon (March 6) with NEPTUNE & MERCURY Retro: Relax, Reconnect, Receive!

5 Mar

Cosmic Greetings, dear Astro~News Friend!

Neptune Rules Pisces
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

Tomorrow’s NEW MOON in mid-PISCES (with a SCO undertone), comes in close Union with NEPTUNE – to be seen together in the chart below…

Ultimate Fluidity – all about Connection…
Oneness Consciousness and  L~O~V~E transform.


Let’s embrace & be embraced by this PISCES NEW MOON – the last of the astrological cycle, before Spring Equinox (on March 20)!
Let’s relax, connect with (in!) the unifying field, and receive the gently transforming vibes and waves that are always offered!

MERCURY, now freshly retro (as of today, March 5, until March 28) agrees: Let the mind be at ease – and see how easy things can BE!

In Hindu tradition it’s the New Moon that comes after Maha Shivaratri – Union with the Formless.


In the meantime (on Feb 18), CHIRON has emerged from PISCES (where it’s been since 2010 / 2011), supporting us in letting go of multi-layered interdependent wounds that were interwoven with the collective – and even of ‘healing journeys’.
To be ‘newborn’ in ARIES where the Medicine is about Showing Up in our Authentic Self. CHIRON will be in ARIES until 2027 – but the Time is NOW.


Another big shift of 2019 will happen – tomorrow, ‘delivered’ by the PISCES New Moon:
URANUS – Archetype of the Awakener – left ARIES (there since 2011!), and enters TAURUS: Wake UP, Earthlings, and Embody Freedom!

 

 

Let’s take a look at the PISCES NEW MOON ‘birth’ chart:

The PISCES NEW MOON will be exact at 8:04 am PST tomorrow March 6. 

 

 

  • SUN-MOON-NEPTUNE fused together in mid-PISCES (not even a degree apart – both the monthly passage of the MOON and the yearly ‘passage’ of the SUN ‘over’ NEPTUNE will happen tomorrow after the New Moon.
    Mid-PISCES has a SCORPIO undertone – so, we’re going through layers and waves of emotions to come to the core where from transformation comes.
    Let it BE, says NEPTUNE.
    A ‘NEPTUNE New MOON’ or even ‘New NEPTUNE’ in PISCES…

 

  • …just as CHIRON has (on Feb 18) left PISCES where it’s been in the last 8 years, since March 11, 2011.
    Melting and ‘washing out’ not just the Winter in the Northern Hemisphere, but also Wounds of the Collective that have ripple effects and show up in all of us through our inter-connectedness.
    Time to allow the wounded, vulnerable, re-traumatize-able sides in us (often related to early wounds of abandonment and / or overwhelm / abuse / intrusion) to come up, and be re-connected in the Whole of our Being.
    Healthy Connectedness (NEPTUNE & PISCES) Heals.A golden opport-Unity to RE-view this decade:
    What has it shown you about Woundedness, Healing, Teaching?

    How have you embraced the Medicine from within, rather than escaping, drugging, numbing what wants to get your attention, teach and heal you?
    You might want to look back to when CHIRON in PI began (2010/11), which of your vulnerable and weak spots got triggered already and since then, which are still trigger-able, and where might those come from originally?

 

  • Every New Moon offers the closure of an old cycle, and the beginning of a new cycle.
    Maybe the NEW MOON with NEPTUNE in PISCES even tells us about vestiges of the PISCES Age era of collectivism fizzling out, making room for ever increasing AQ Age phenomena?Yes, we’re obviously already in the era of technology & accelerated innovation. And individualized technology has already broadly invaded in our lives and taken the place of collective experiences of the past…
    In my sense, one aspect of the ‘Zeitgeist’ of NEPTUNE (in its 165-year cycle) now in PISCES (2012 – 2026), after its AQ activation (1998 – 2012, with URANUS in AQ / PI at the time) is to show our transition out of the PISCES Age ( incl. dependency on / addictions – to technology…).

    The Ages overlap of course (just as the constellations AQ and PI overlap in the Zodiac). With NEPTUNE in PI (2012 – 2026) a transition time is on, while Humanity shows symptoms of PI-AQ.
    So, let’s stay (nep)tuned, yet consider, with MERCURY now freshly RETRO (also in PI), what of the mind’s stories are ‘old’ and just a re-flex, esp. in this Epimethean 1st half of M-r (until March 14).
    Let’s naturally, lovingly tune IN and connect – in ourselves, with each other, and in Life.

 

  • MERCURY freshly retro, at the very end of PISCES just slightly ‘off’ CHIRON are quite the focal point too. They’re the tiniest bit apart, yet on different sides of the ‘Emergence’ / Spring Equinox Point and moving away from each other (M-r back into PI and CHIRON forward in AR).
    A good time to re-connect – with people, places, and foremost, with our innermost Self, to notice how the mind and its stories and arguments are in the way…
    And with CHIRON freshly in ARIES to show up authentically (ha, maybe before we can think too much).

 

  • Big News, ‘delivered’ by the cosmic PISCES NEW MOON:
    Just 7 1/2 hrs before the exact New Moon, URANUS, Archetype of the Awakener & Paradigm Shifter changes Zodiac signs, from ARIES where it’s been since 2011(!) into TAURUS!
    Until Apr 26, 2026 (YES, for almost 7 years) that-IS!
    A first ‘teaser’ phase for URANUS on the cusp into TAURUS already happened last May 15 – Nov 6 when URANUS retreated back into ARIES over the Winter.

    Quite a cathartic and catalytic shift, helping us to set FREE what’s been held in / back for long:

    • Get UN-stuck & UN-settled!
    • Get UN-attached from what has ‘owned you’!
    • Set yourself FREE from stagnation, inertia, conventions, comfort traps, persistent habits that might have turned into addictions even!
    • Get FREE from fixations, and resistance-to-change.
    • Be fresh and re-invent yourself!
    • Disrupt too slow-moving processes / holding back, and surprise yourself with experimentation!

    Check out the URANUS into TAURUS blog article, to delve more deeply into this ‘Zeitgeist’ theme.

 

  • Then, there’s the YOD / Green Kite configuration (green elongated triangle, with a red central axis) now building over the next few weeks, and activated by the PISCES New MOON.
    Pointing to the Lunar North Node in late CANCER, from JUPITER in late SAG, and LILITH in late AQ.
    (reverse from the image to the left – pointing ‘downwards’ in the New Moon chart). 
    A ‘Celestial Pointer’ to the CANCER North Node themes of finding our Home in the world, with others, at places, and Homecoming, in ourselves and in the Universe (late CANCER has a PISCES undertone)…!
    ‘Fed by’ the deep knowing that Seeing the bigger, more spacious Picture is a huge Gift, and makes all the difference (JUPITER in late SAG).

    And: Our True Nature is FREE (LILITH in late AQ).

    The ‘polarity point’ to the Celestial Pointer (NN in CANCER) is a concentration of SATURN, PLUTO, and the Lunar South Node in late CAP. That’s where the ‘Old Empire Expires’. Yes, old societal structures, esp. hierarchical, controlling ones are changing while still trying to exert their power (PLUTO) yet are outdated and coming to an end while we’re called to not give authority away but own it (SATURN).

    So, as we’re not buying anymore into these ‘old matrixes’ with their ‘shoulds’, expectations, obligations, rules, ‘do it the hard way’ to get approval, etc. it’s easier to come home in ourselves and in the world, with gentleness and compassion (CANCER).

 

  • MARS in TAURUS (slow, steady, enjoyable movement and ‘pursuit’) agrees, and so does VENUS in AQ – in ‘mutual reception’ with URANUS (ruler of AQ) in TAU (ruled by VENUS) – enjoying and embodying FREEDOM.

 

Ahhh, felt called to bring in the 

Sabian Symbol for the New Moon (at 15°47′ PI)

(and also for NEPTUNE at 16°07′ PI for that matter) – voila!

“PISCES 16°: 
IN THE QUIET OF HIS STUDY A CREATIVE INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCES A FLOW OF INSPIRATION.

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot Card IX Hermit

KEYNOTE: Reliance upon one’s inner source of inspiration or guidance.

In this last scene (16 – 30° PI) of the great ritual of cyclic existence we are dealing with various aspects of the process that enables humans to “con-firm,” formulate and perpetuate the original creative impulse which has become self-actualized in a myriad of ways throughout the cycle, short or long as the cycle may be.
This first symbol strikes the keynote of truly significant creative processes: their source is above, beyond, but also around the individual creator. The inspiration, original and individual though it may be, is given a form which is conditioned by the cultural, social and religious background of the creative person.
In a sense, every genius merely records an answer to the needs of the time. The hands that write, play an instrument, or mold a plastic material are his / her own; the urge or drive back of the flow of inspiration has arisen in the vast collective mind of humanity.

This is the first of the seventieth series of five symbols. The individual aspect of the creative process is emphasized as is the individual’s need for concentration and at least inner quiet.
S/he must have faith in his /her own SUBJECTIVE STRENGTH.”

 

So apropos the NEPTUNIAN collective yet also inner/cosmic connection that the NEW MOON catalyzes.
Simultaneously reflecting the aspects of the South Node in CAP with SATURN / PLUTO (having been ‘in service to the old regime’), and the incentive of the North Node in CANCER to be originally creative – and naturally strong through that, as a biologically creative mother (CANCER) is.
The NEW MOON is the conception point – full circle…

 

Blessings for the ALL-Connective New Moon in PISCES with NEPTUNE!
