Cuspy Full Moon in GEM – SAG (Nov 22 / 23): Voice Your Heart Truth, and Move with it!

21 Nov

Dear Astro~News Friend in Spirit Connection,

Horse Hug – Photo by my Friend Otto Heitzer

 

That’s BIG and Exciting – and many of us have been already tuning into this Massive Energy Field:
Tomorrow Thu Nov 22, the SUN follows JUPITER over the PHOENIX Point into SAG.
Thu is JupiterDay, and it’s U.S. Thanksgiving – both SO SAG / JUPITER.
The SUN / JUPITER union will follow shortly, on Sun-Day the 25th!
Gotta LOVE the Heavens-as-on-Earth alignments….!

JUPITER since (Thu!) Nov 8 in its own realm of SAG invites us to find our Heart Truth, and generously share our Spirit and Gifts with the World.

That’s not all, because the reason for the season of the ASTRO~NEWS is the FULL MOON, happening 20 hrs after the SUN’s entry into SAG.
I.o.w., the MOON will be on the first degree of GEM when exactly full.

Both SUN and MOON will be cuspy.
Plus, 5 more Zodiac cusps are activated through the Nodes, VENUS, CHIRON, and URANUS – see below, in and under the Full Moon chart.
And, we’re moving out of the fixed holding pattern, into very mutable Zodiac field across the board – as the Full Moon chart also shows:

The Nodes are freshly out of fixed AQ – LEO, and now in CAP – CAN, MARS left AQ, and is now in PI, JUPITER came out of SCO on Nov 5, after 13 months in it, the SUN follows tomorrow, and the MOON will be out of TAU in GEM just shortly before the FULL MOON.

Bottom line, lots can get unstuck now, shifting and moving, onward and upward!

…just after this almost-Full Moon that’s been very strongly fixed in TAU yesterday and today Nov 20 / 21 – bringing the deep SCO season to a ‘harvesting’ completion.
And showing us where our desires or aversions can turn into attachment that causes suffering to ourselves and others (as the Buddha teaches too…) and needs to be processed for the sake of all.


The MOON will be still in TAU for most of tomorrow Nov 22 before she ‘grows wings’ in GEM at 8:10 pm PST, just 1 1/2 hrs before the FULL MOON at 9:39 pm PST.

The early GEMINI energy has also an Alchemy flavour:

  • How does the (TAUREAN) ‘food’ (intake on all levels) ‘taste and smell’, and what’s been ‘cooking’?
  • Which fragrances do we move toward now?
  • What’s the ‘fragrance’ and what are the ‘sounds’ (literally / symbolically) that are being released through the process we’ve been in?
  • Making sounds and breathing into what’s been going on, perhaps breathing new life into what’s been stagnant and stuck can be helpful instinctual bodily and symbolic movements.
  • What are the messages and signals (GEM) of the body (TAU) we’re receiving and giving off?
  • What’s been stagnant and stuck, or ‘fermenting’ and come to fruition to find a voice now?
  • What’s growing wings now, and ready to take flight?

 


Here’s the Yin-Yang Phoenix – on top of the allegoric Gemini painting by Johfra Bosschart. 
You’ve seen it before – maybe in a new light now (under MERCURY in SAG, and in the context of the GEM – SAG Full Moon).

More and more people have found their Twin (GEM) Flame (SAG) – a theme that’s also related to this Full Moon – which may heighten the chances to connect – or re-connect (under MERCURY – ruler of GEM – now retro in SAG), if the flame is (re-)ignited through certain signals (or maybe a secret Soul Code).

 

Time to FREE things up – and see them in a new LIGHT.

  • Maybe by rising above the ‘creepy-crawly’ dimension we’ve been stuck in, burning off what doesn’t serve anymore and has fulfilled its purpose – esp. when we look at it clearly, and notice the space between us and ‘it’.
  • Maybe by honouring the dark, ‘hiding’, and holding places we’ve been in, taking us deeper than we might have chosen, but importantly so.

What helps us shift from ‘being in the dark’ to moving forward, and trusting the Journey that Life is?
What is it that ignites the Heart and Spirit in these seasonably darkest times (in our Northern hemisphere)? 
What can we trust, and move forward and through the dark days with?

 

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius –Painting by Johfra Bosschart

The SAG Hermit carries his Soul light lantern – always shedding light on the path right in front of him…
Reminds me of a quote:

“Qu: How do I know whether I’m on the right path?
A: Just look down where your feet are.”
(must have been coined by a SAG – CAP person…. ).

The SAG Centaur (according to a mythological story the transcended ‘Wounded Healer’ CHIRON) is the embodied connection of Animal (an animal with a Big Heart that-is!) with Conscious Human, shooting the arrow ignited / fueled by Zeus’s (JUPITER’s) thunderbolt to the Heavens. 
Animal – Human – Divine, in ONE.

A simple formula / reminder for the SAG Spirit.
The inner Heart Fire is the Divine Ignition, that carries us forward, and our Spirit into the World….
Maybe – quite often actually – the result / in the context of what’s called a ‘Healing Journey’
(which may continue… it doesn’t need to have a destination).

 

Let’s take a look at the FULL MOON chart!

The MOON will be culminating in her Fullness at 9:39 pm PST tomorrow Nov 22 (12:39 am EST on Nov 23).

See the SUN / JUPITER alignment on the ‘Phoenix Point’ in early SAG? 
The two biggest bodies of the Solar System aligned in that area of the heavens – what a gravitation! Where you see the SUN these days is also JUPITER.

It’ll takes the SUN 3 days after the Full Moon to catch up with and pass JUPITER (on Nov 25 / 26). 
From then on JUPITER will rise again before the SUN (call it ‘New JUPITER‘). We won’t see JUPITER in the early morning for a while yet, though.
Yet, it’s a Solar initiation of JUPITER into SAG – in case you haven’t noticed the ‘Phoenix’ / SAG energy so strongly yet in the last weeks.
May we rise in Spirit, Heart guided and with clear seeing!

Not far from SUN / JUPITER:
MERCURY, now retro a bit further in early SAG, is being in this first half of M-r ‘lassoed in’, to meet and go behind the SUN next Tue Nov 27 = ‘Day of Enlightened Insight’ aka ‘New MERCURY‘.

The first half of M-r (since Nov 16) a.k.a. Epimethean phase can (esp. in SAG) bring out ‘old and told stories and beliefs’ which are coming to the forefront of the mind – only for us to acknowledge them for what they’ve meant, and how they might have made sense in the context of the past.
But we’re outgrowing them, inevitably, as we’re finding deep Inner Truth and Freedom.

I.o.w., so much Phoenix Rebirth Energy nowadays… 
When you feel stuck in the ‘Labour’ or ‘Birth Canal’ of it trust the process. This too shall move!
And with the consciousness of the Old we can’t quite perceive of the new and lighter yet. It’ll look differently on the other side.

 

What’s with all the Zodiac Cusps being activated?

 

  • The PHOENIX Point – as of tomorrow on the SAG side! – , with the SUN (enters SAG on Nov 22 at 1:01 am PST), JUPITER, and MERCURY retro.
    Shifts with the ‘New JUPITER’ and ‘New MERCURY’ over the next week, as in:
    Rebirth of Spirit, and of a clear seeing Heart-Mind.

    MERCURY retro will go again over the ‘Phoenix Point’ into late SCO from Dec 1 – 12, to dive into deeper motives and magical zones (SCO) that inspire us (SAG).

 

  • The South Node is now at the end of CAP, while the North Node is at the end of CAN. 

    The Nodal Axis shifted recently, on Nov 16
    , with the Lunar South Node (SN) on the CAP / AQ ‘Society/ System / Witnessing Point’ (aka ‘Prometheus Point’= the Rebel / Innovator bringing the Fire of Freedom to Humanity, another story….) and Lunar North Node (NN) on the ‘Creativity Point’ (CAN / LEO).

    The ‘air can get thin’, and it can get icy, cold, and lonely, on top of the mountain where we understand and witness…

    We’ve reached an imbalance of overly ‘watching / witnessing’ (AQ / CAP) – perhaps immature narcissistic ‘drama queens and drama kings’ playing out their unresolved childhood stuff (CAN / LEO), and giving them / this stuff energy through attention while getting drained – and it gets old. This imbalance needs to shift.
    Otherwise not-so-great CAP effects
    (feeling heavy, burdened, depressed, judgmental, resentful…) can easily kick in – symptoms showing something’s out of balance.

    How about stepping away, and unplugging from this position (should you have put yourself into it), incl. the over-engagement with watching other people in a way that’s ‘sensationally’ tempting but drains your energy?
    Social media doesn’t help / is part of the problem, esp. if it’s a substitute that replaces social engagement with real people in a lonely ‘plugged-in modern world’ that just reinforces the system.

    And how about instead – with the freed-up energy – playing and being creative (CAN – LEO NN) like / with the Inner Child?!
    And dancing as if nobody or everybody watches (what’s the difference – if you’re childlike?)?
    Because you can, and because you care. Because taking care of your needs gives you new energy you can bring into the picture with others.
    Yep, a fresh cuspy shift right there.

 

  • MARS is now freshly in early PISCES (Nov 15 – Dec 31) encourages us to go with the flow, surf the cosmic waves, adapt to the energies that come up, ride them out, and channel ‘action’ into release, relax, and letting go….
    Ha, esp. in the Holiday craze – excellent antidote to otherwise Piscean ‘Tsunami’ overwhelm – beware of that one, take it easy, and be in the flow.

 

  • CHIRON presently retro is in late PISCES – moved back over the ‘Emergence Point’ from ARIES where it’s been since mid-April until end of Sept, and is now back in late PI until Feb 18, 2019. A ‘CHIRON-ic Immersion’ for its last phase in PI (where it’s been since 2010 / 2011).
    CHIRON will go out of retro on Dec 8 – a stationary focal point in the first half of Dec, pointing us to what the oceanic immersive, reconnective, and regenerative ‘Medicine’ is for / in us that changes our vibration and helps with a fresh genuine presence.
    Remember, CHIRON in ARIES offers the Medicine of being the Authentic YOU.

 

  • URANUS retro is also backtracking nowadays, for one more phase at the end of ARIES where it’s been since 2011.
    URANUS has already ‘shaken up’ and awakened TAURUS (doing its job as the Archetype of the Awakener) as in: Us Earthlings, in relation to Mother Earth, and to our sensate body, mid-2018.
    URANUS on the TAU side of the ‘Settling Point’ has been obviously rather un-settling, yet helping us be free from dullness, stagnation, comfort traps, attachment, complacency, and for a new way of embodying Spirit.
    Now back in ARIES, URANUS brings fresh Spirit of experimentation to how we show up.
    Just do it, says ARIES, and be alive, new, and in the NOW.
    URANUS will go out of retro = direct again on Jan 6, the day after the CAP New MOON / a Partial Solar Eclipse, on Jan 5.
    Hence end of Dec to mid-Jan will be quite Uranian, bringing wake-up calls and paradigm shifts.

 

  • VENUS in late LIBRA – post her retro journey in Fall, and now re-newed as the ‘Morning Star’ Goddess / Divine Feminine – helps us choose, and engage relationally (LIBRA), based on our intrinsic values.
    VENUS will once again on Dec 2
     (already happened this Fall, due to her retro journey) dive over the ‘Tipping Point’ cusp into SCO where she’ll dwell until Jan 7 / 8.
    So yeah, make a choice that’s a good match and don’t be afraid of the magic and change it brings.
    VENUS on the ‘Tipping Point’ will oppose URANUS on the ‘Settling Point’ once again (# 3 of 3) on Fri (VenusDay!) Nov 30.
    The freedom of choice…

 

  • The FULL MOON on the TAU – GEM cusp which I call ‘BodyTalk Point’ or ‘Voice Point’ calls us to respond to the messages and signals of the body, and give a voice to what’s been ‘sitting there’.
    Asking good questions helps….
    As does following the Path of the Heart that SAG points us to so strongly now…

 

 

Sending Love, Light, and Joy – on your Path, and in the Cosmic Dance!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

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

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

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

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

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

 

Come over to TREAT TIME Offers in December, to treat yourself or a Loved One to an Astro Session for the Holidays, esp. for an Outlook into the New Year!

Experiment with the New YOU! URANUS retro re-enters ARIES (Nov 6 – March 6, 2019)

4 Nov

Prometheus, the Greek hero associated with the Planet URANUS, capturing the fire of spirit and creative inventiveness from the Gods for Humanity.

One last phase of URANUS in ARIES is coming up over the Winter, before it finally ‘lands’ in TAURUS next March – until 2026!

Experimental URANUS has tried on TAU this year for exactly 6 lunar months, since the DAY of the the New Moon in TAU (May 15), and on the day before SCO New Moon (Nov 7) it will retract from the Taurean realm.
What an amazing alignment – ‘just like that’…!

URANUS has been in ARIES since March 2011 – and is usually 7 1/2 years in a Zodiac sign.
This ARIES ‘wrap-up phase’ at the very end of the fiery ‘initiator’ / ‘instigator’ Archetype can stimulate accelerated newness, esp. technology and start-ups
(yep, we’ve already seen so much of that during UR in AR), innovative experimentation, and a bold ‘get the ball rolling’ initiatives, as well as unprecedented momentum to think and live outside the box / Matrix.

BE fresh and new and in the Awake NOW that has no comparison.
The New YOU is where it’s at.

 

Next UP for URANUS retro in ARIES this season:

 

  • On Nov 30, VENUS, freshly out of retro (from Nov 16 on) at the end of LIBRA (on the ‘Tipping Point’) will oppose URANUS (for the 3rd time that-is, since it already happened (# 1) on Sept 12 when ‘she’ had barely entered SCO, and again (# 2) just last week, on Oct 31, with VENUS retro, again from early SCO.
    Wow, triple VENUS – URANUS activation on the ‘Tipping Point’ (VENUS) & ‘Settling Point’ (URANUS) – that sounds like there’s been unfinished business between the Love Goddess and the Liberator.
    When we truly love ourselves and come from the Consciousness of Love (SUN – VENUS / ‘New VENUS’ being activated via VENUS retro) we don’t need to ‘rebel’ / run away / split / oppose ourselves to others to be free.
    Freedom arises through the Love that IS – and it (re)arranges relationships as needed.

 

  • URANUS retro in late ARIES squares the Lunar Nodes in late CAP (SN) – late CAN (NN) from mid-Nov to mid-Dec, exact Dec 2 / 3.
    A rare triple cuspy T-square, with URANUS on the ‘Settling Point’, the South Node on the ‘Collaboration / Systems / Society Point’, and the North Node on the ‘Creativity / Inner Child / Playfulness Point’.
    What can this add up to?
    Tension between a (perhaps old pattern of) investing too much energy into group efforts that aren’t really ‘cutting it’ (perhaps you’re taking too much on, or are with groups or part of a society run by on old ‘operating systems’
    ) – while fresh energy is coming in and welcoming you to be creative, loving, playful, and (self) caring in new ways.
    Sometimes it takes a liberating paradigm shift…
    JUPITER from the SAG side of the ‘Phoenix Point’ trining the North Node supports you in being on your uplifting path and in your Truth.

 

  • On Feb 3, 2019, VENUS at the end of SAG goes into Fire Trine with URANUS (by then direct again) in ARIES, and on Feb 13, MARS at the end of ARIES meets and passes URANUS.
    Very adventurous and uplifting energies.
    The MARS / URANUS connection in MARS’s ruled sign can unleash quite erratic and unpredictable, at best liberating breakthrough energies. Viva la Revolution!

 

Wishing you a liberating, rebirthing Uranian season!

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

22 Jul

Authenticity

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

Leo-nasadh

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


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

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

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

 

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

Johfra Bosschart Leo

The Sun Rules Leo – Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Early LEO NEW MOON – Creative Conception

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

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

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

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

How can that look and feel like?

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

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

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

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

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

 

Here is the Fiery LEO NEW MOON Chart

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

LEO NM 2017

What’s with ALL this Fiery Energy?

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

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

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

Blessings for a Heart-full LEO New Moon cycle!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

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

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

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

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

MARS into LEO (July 20 – Sept 5): Play Time – Show Time – Heart Time… a Roaring Summer!

20 Jul

Hey friends,
feeling like play play play?
MARS crosses the ‘Creativity Point’ (as I call it) from CANCER to LEO today, July 20, yayyy!
And guess what?
Fiery LEO is a better playground for MARS than sensitive CANCER in the last weeks since early June where it might have gotten a bit ‘claustrophobic’ for the Martian journey – the ‘warrior’ Archetype needed some active outlets in the fields of caring, self care (that was me, with my Summer cold), and perhaps literally indoor / home action / work (rather than anger and home violence even). Did you do some Spring / early Summer cleaning and purging (riding the cosmic waves of MARS – PLUTO early July, and of the CAP – CAN ‘Powerhouse’ Full Moon on July 8)? I did, since I couldn’t leave the house due to that cold. Might as well use the energy in a good way…

YEP, double fiery now, with fiery MARS in fiery LEO, until Sept 5. A sizzling Summer. Maybe also more dry / drought / wildfire scenarios, sadly…
More LEO Fire to come soon: The SUN enters LEO on July 22, New Moon in LEO to follow, on July 23, and the SUN will pass MARS on July 26 – definitely a ‘Hot Spot’ week!

The MARS shift into LEO gives a boost of strength and confidence.
LEO seems like a fun and dynamic place for MARS to be in, and can nicely heat up the Summer with renewed passion. Caramba!

It brings out the macho or macha in us who wants to strut, play, and dance, and show his / her colours. An originally creative impulse is certainly fun, yet it can easily turn into ego gratification drives. Watch out for those.

MARS in LEO until early Sept activates for you as part of one of the LEO ‘mini generations’…:

  • PLUTO (for the PLUTO in LEO boomers, born June 1939 – Aug 1957):
    Could get a bit intense if you run into power conflicts with others. Rather use the energy to bravely check in what’s going on in deeper, core issues, why is there such a charge around being important, being seen and loved?
     
  • SATURN (for the 3 generations with SATURN in LEO, born Aug 1946 – Sept 1948; Sept – Dec 1975 + June 1976 – July 1978; July 2005 – Aug 2007):
    Where you might ‘usually’ experience limitations, reservations, or even fear of expressing yourself freely MARS kicks ass, and says: Just do it!
     
  • For all of us with LEO AC, SUN, MOON, or planets MARS gives a boost of energy, and can make you feel bolder. Put yourself out there!

I trust your co-creativity sky-rockets, and you are super inspired these days – straight from the Heart. Show your Colours. Be YOU!
Access the LEO solid warmth-of-heart, and creative power in the area of life where early LEO is in your chart!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

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

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

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

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