12 Days of Christmas & The Zodiac?!

23 Dec

Everyone knows the epic carol 12 Days of Christmas – and you might have wondered about the hidden, encoded meaning of the ‘gifts’?!
Check out the Wiki article, and maybe you’re inclined to do more research?

The 12 Days go from DEC 25 / 26 Christmas Day / St. Stephen until JAN 6 / Epiphany.
Some say they start from Christmas night DEC 25 / 26, and each ‘Day’ starts with the eve / night leading into it.

Guess why I’m writing about them?
Because there’s a ZODIAC Connection with the 12 Days!

Two directions can be taken, forward or backward in the Zodiac, both complementary.
The first Day of Christmas, DEC 25 / 26 is the Day of ARIES, and / or the Day of PISCES.

Would you like to tune in, follow the 12 Zodiac Days, and receive ‘customized gifts’ from those energies?

Lots of astrological symbolism in Christianity and its architecture, often in plain sight – they knew what they were doing and using!

 

Here’s the line-up of dates and corresponding 12-Day ZODIAC themes  (forward and backward):

DEC 25 / 26:
ARIES / PISCES

DEC 26 / 27:
TAURUS / AQUARIUS

DEC 27 / 28:
GEMINI / CAPRICORN

DEC 28 / 29:
CANCER / SAGITTARIUS

DEC 29 / 30:
LEO / SCORPIO

DEC 30 / 31:
VIRGO / LIBRA

– and then it ‘flips’ on New Year’s, as we’re dancing on the VIR-LI-VIR cusp – Perfect Alignment!

Dec 31 / JAN 1:
LIBRA / VIRGO

JAN 1 / 2:
SCORPIO / LEO

JAN 2 / 3:
SAGITTARIUS / CANCER

JAN 3 / 4:
CAPRICORN / GEMINI

JAN 4 / 5:
AQUARIUS / TAURUS

JAN 5 / 6:
PISCES / ARIES.

 

Let’s invite synchronistic messages, and see how the ZODIAC themes show up for us,

Much Love to you, at Christmas & ‘between the Years’, in Timeliness & Timelessness!

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.

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

Winter SoUlstice Full Moon (Dec 22, 2018) in CANCER – CAP: Home is where the Heart of Hearts is…

21 Dec

Happy Winter SoUlstice Full Moon,

dear Reader in the Astro~News Tribe!

What a rare occurrence this year, as only 17 hrs after Winter Solstice, LUNA shows her fullness just after entering her Cancerian home abode. 
The Winter Solstice SUN is met by the Summer Solstice MOON!

 

At this WINTER SOLSTICE Day, the waxing MOON is still in GEM, and the Solstice Night will be an almost-Full MOON night (when the lunar energy is even stronger than the day after the Full Moon).
A polarity between the need to belong to a tribe or family, be with children / with the Inner Child (CANCER), and focusing on priorities and purpose / being the Elder (CAP).


Which may be but doesn’t have to be a dilemma, ‘bridged’ by MARS / CHIRON between them (a square): SoUlutions come from surrendering to the healing quality of unity and connection. When we connect from the Heart it all comes and flows together, time flies or stands still – either way, it’s magical.

 

Tall Tree Time – Nourished by the Waters of Life…. Photo by Melanie, Winter SoUlstice 2018

 

What nurtures us? asks the CANCER Full Moon…
How do we nurture Ourselves, our Children, our Inner Child, our Family / Tribe?
How do we feel and give a sense of Belonging?
Where’s HOME?

Nurturing young and old through the COLD, finding emotional and physical comfort and resources is a big deal in Northern lands – even though we’re just coming through the shortest days of the year, Winter  & CAPRICORN has only just begun, today Dec 21.

How do the contrasting themes of the warm, cuddly, and caring CANCER and rock-solid CAPRICORN energies (which you can see in the chart below) balance and complement?

 

The Winter Solstice Sun initiates CAPRICORN where SATURN, PLUTO, and the Lunar South Node sit these days / years:

 

  • SATURN, the Ruler of CAP – for a year now in CAP (since Dec 20, 2017 and dwelling in the mountainous region of CAP until Dec 17, 2020)!
    Here’s the blog article for this momentous move a year ago – maybe time for a review of the first year?
    SATURN in CAP brings rewarding incentives for us to ‘step up’ and be / do what we’re best at.
    No need to waste our time and energy on what’s futile and not ‘the real thing’. It’s Your Time and Your Life.
    No need to feel guilty, nor to judge what we don’t want to see, rather to move on / up, and model the Best and the Change (PLUTO).

 

  • PLUTO is in CAP for the long haul, until 2023.
    To make sure CAP goes through its deep foundational change and Evolution. I.o.w., for humanity to be done with wasteful, abusive, irresponsible, immature behaviour.
    So much time and energy is invested in sustaining a dinosaur system. We need to step up to the plate, live more simply (doesn’t mean deprivation) and sustainably, with quality focus instead of quantity (yet never-enough).
    What helps is clear noticing what / which (perhaps conditioned) patterns drain our energy, where energy comes from in contrast, and following that trail.

 

Here’s the full ‘Birth Chart’ of the Winter Solstice Full Moon!

Yes, a Full Moon is like a birthing or harvest of what comes to fruition – whether it’s been planted / sown under the previous New Moon, or many Moons ago.

The Full Moon in CANCER – CAP will be exact at 9:49 am PST tomorrow Dec 22.

 

 

Here ‘she’ is! The MOON will enter her CANCER abode at 8:28 am PST, just 80 min before the Full Moon at 9:49 am PST on the first degrees (0°49′) of CAN – CAP.

The MOON and the Lunar North Node surround and embrace CANCER – a well-needed and supported Zodiac energy nowadays.
The Lunar Nodes shifted into CAP – CAN on Nov 16 where they’ll be until June 5, 2020 (here’s the blog post for this Nodal energy phase).


Inviting us to lead from Cancerian warmth, care, nurturance, playfulness, creativity, drop heavy Capricornian burdens, ‘shoulds’, conditioning, fears, restrictions, depression, judgment, and not feed the CAP shadow of unqualified leadership and tyrannical structures that eat up our time and energy.
Rather to go where joy and playful timelessness are, and to create and raise vibrations from there. More energy freed up to create the change we do want to see and that sustains us.

 

For the CANCER – CAPRICORN Solstice / Christmas Full Moon in the signs of the Lunar Nodes that means (and is also a prelude to the upcoming Solar and Lunar Eclipses in CAP – CAN in 2019):

  • It’s not about ‘production’ and status for the Holidays (yep, pretty clear how that can drain our time, energy, and money…), rather about Heart connections, home, and belonging.
  • HOME is where the Heart of Hearts is…. a place we just love and where we feel welcomed, and a spiritual place that invites us unconditionally to come home to, at Christmas and any timeless time.
  • CANCER & CAP bring Elders and Children and anybody in-between together (rather than a separation and segregation that’s so common – and also costly – in modern society). 
  • How do traditions (CAP) feed our needs, and make us feel we belong (CANCER)?
  • The Summer Solstice GEM – CAN cusp of the FULL MOON is the ‘Nesting Point’ as I call it. Having a nurturing nest to come back to (CAN MOON) helps us with having energy to do important work in the world (CAP SUN).

 

 

Let’s take a look at the SABIAN SYMBOLS

…for the MOON and SUN at the Summer and Winter Solstice Points!

 

The Full MOON will be at 0°49′ CANCER.

1° CANCER:

 

Mexican Moon Boat(s) – Photo by Melanie, Dec 2018

 

“ON A SHIP THE SAILORS LOWER AN OLD FLAG AND RAISE A NEW ONE.

KEYNOTE: A radical change of allegiance exteriorized in a symbolical act: A point of no return.

We have now reached a square (go-degree angle) to the beginning of the cyclic process. This is a moment of crisis, a sharp turning point. In the zodiacal cycle, at the Summer Solstice the northward motion of the Sun (in “decimation”) stops; the Sun rises and sets as far north of exact east and west as it can during the year-cycle. Its motion is now reversed. Slowly the sunset points move southward on the western horizon, and the length of the day decreases. In the Lunation cycle (from New Moon to New Moon) this is the First Quarter phase.
On the “ship” which symbolizes the ego-consciousness floating, as it were, on the sea of the vast Unconscious, the individualized will makes a basic decision. The dominant Yang force allows the Yin force to begin its six-month long rise to power. The “collective” will gradually overcomes the “individual,” and at the end the state will overpower the person. Now, however, the individual person enjoys his most glorious hour; he exults in his ability to make a “free decision”- i.e. to act as an individual who selects his life goal and his allegiance.

This is the first stage in the nineteenth five-fold series of degree symbols. In a decisive act heavy with consequences, the symbolic college youth might realize that he should bring to an end his quest for the ideal companion and enter into matrimony. He assents to the possibility of progeny, of home responsibility. His consciousness accepts a process of fundamental REORIENTATION, implying the stabilization of his energies.”


Sooo, where’s your Moon Boat taking you?
Which relation-ships, home, and other harbours for your soul….?
Dare to re-orient yourself.

 

The SUN will be at 0°49′ CAP.

1° CAPRICORN:

 

Chief Seattle

 

“AN INDIAN CHIEF CLAIMS POWER FROM THE ASSEMBLED TRIBE.

KEYNOTE: The power and responsibility implied in any claim for leadership.

The religious ideal implied in the preceding symbol has now materialized or crystallized into sheer power — the power to lead the community and to ensure its welfare or even its physical survival. The energies released through group cooperation (Libra), deepened and emotionally experienced as forces of great potency (Scorpio), and given meaning and conscious purpose (Sagittarius) are now stabilized and hierarchized. The power of the group is turned into a measurable and carefully managed “capital.” The words “chief” and “capital” come from the same Latin word, caput, meaning “head.” 
A time comes in many lives when the individual finds themselves placed in a situation that allows them to assume power over their comrades, however limited this power may be. Is he / she ready to do this effectively and responsibly? This is the supreme test of a human being in society. 
It complements its polar opposite (Summer Solstice degree), which refers to the acceptance by the individual of a new kind of allegiance as a foundation for the integration of a mature personality. Such a foundation may, but need not, refer to establishing a home.

This represents the first stage in a five-fold process — the fifty-fifth sequence of five symbols. It refers to the capacity latent in every individual to claim and assume AUTHORITY in a vital group-situation.”

 

SATURN now in CAP is clearly about this kind of mature Authority – a notion to claim it where appropriate, and the repercussions of its use (or abuse).
Quite clearly, we’re seeing plenty of evidence of the necessity for responsible leadership and authority, and for the misuse of it. The theme becomes more prominent in the SATURN in CAP years that can also have a heightened karmic effect (SATURN being the ‘Lord of Karma’, in its own domain CAP), across the board.

What / who’s evidently not fit for authority must adjust, or go.
Actually quite simple.

May better leadership and authority establish itself in these years.

What in us doesn’t step UP to the occasion, and assume leader-ship (because you can, you have the cap-acities)?
What’s in the way of truly leading your life?
And how can you claim Authority again?

 

Especially if your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets are in early CANCER, CAP but also ARIES and LIBRA…
…You’d notice the tension and perhaps notion for re-orientation to be in natural Leadership of your Life (again).
As the year 2019 unfolds, with its Eclipses in CAP – CAN, clear orientation reveals itself more and more. But hey, maybe this FULL MOON already made things crystal clear to you, in your Heart of Hearts?

 

 

Winter SoUlstice SUN – Photo by Melanie, Solstice 2018

 

What are other Planetary Energies in the Full Moon Field, and what’s their Medicine for us?

 

  • The SUN and MOON in early CAP / CAN come out of a T-square with MARS / CHIRON (aligned on Dec 28) in late PISCES where also NEPTUNE ‘sails’ (and was met by MARS on Dec 7).
    The ‘outlet’ and Piscean solution for the SUN – MOON tension leads us to the Medicine of Unity and Connection. Heart Connection transcends either-or, this or that, and a happy, healing Heart can be ‘at home’ anywhere, esp. in the Heart of Hearts….

 

  • MERCURY and JUPITER in SAG aligned this morning, just before the Winter SoUlstice.
    Joy to the World! Speak your Truth, and Raise Vibrations!
    Important to be truthful, and come from a pure Heart that’s not about better-than.

 

  • VENUS has come to the Heart of the Scorpion – as she ‘sits’ in mid SCO -, comes out of a mystical, magical Water Trine with NEPTUNE in PI (exact today Dec 21) and will square LILITH in central AQ on Dec 23.
    Intimacy, Magic, and Depth of Love and Connection vs / and Freedom and Independence.
    Allow both to co-exist rather than be in conflict – NEPTUNE is the big unifyer anyway…

 

  • URANUS retro (the only retro Planet at this point!) in late AR / on the ‘Settling Point’ to TAU will turn around to go direct on Jan 6 – the day after the CAP New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse. This month (end of Dec to mid-Jan) are quite URANIAN with this focal point.
    Meaning, paradigm shifts and liberation yet also disruption of old patterns and structures.
    Allow freedom to prevail, not just freedom from or freedom for, but (one of my favourite provocative quotes by J. Krishnamurti) freedom that has no opposite….

 

 

More about URANUS’s turnaround on Jan 6, and MARS going from PISCES into ARIES on Dec 31 (a big energy boost into the New Year) in upcoming blog posts. Stay tuned!
Of course, you can also expect a New Year’s Overview post!

 

Wishing you a blessed Winter SoUlstice, Christmas, and Holiday Time of your Tradition!
May the Returning Light shine brightly into all areas of your life, and guide your Way HOME! ❤

From the Galactic Centre to the WINTER SOLSTICE 2018: Light Returning…

16 Dec

Solsticey Greetings, Cosmic Friend!

 

 

These days, Dec 17 – 19, is the yearly time when (in the Northern Hemisphere) the SUN in late SAG points to the Heart of our Milky Way Galaxy – the Galactic Centre, a dark rift, ‘black hole’, AND a birthing place out of stillness, honoured by indigenous cultures as the Womb of Creation.

All of us with birthdays these days, or AC, MOON, or Planets in our birth chart at 26 – 28° SAG, are strongly called to align from our loving Heart, with the Heart of Hearts, to follow ultimate Truth, inner Guidance, and trust the inner Soul Light on our Path.

 

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

On the Winter Solstice intersection of SAG / CAP, we’re also at the Space-Time cross(roads):
SAG rules Space, and CAP rules Time.

What does it take, to show up simply and ‘magically’ at the right Time at the right Place? To ‘attract synchronicities’?

We increase the odds when we’re in resonance with the Universe, i.o.w., when we follow inner Heart Guidance, the inner teacher who is connected to the bigger sphere, or even ‘simpler’: When we’re in egoless alignment with Integrity as-Nature, and move with LOVE.


The
 Winter SoUlstice Point is the Space-Time Point, Integrity Point, or Inner Guru Point – here we can find the Teacher and Guiding Light within. 

SATURN, the ‘obstacle bringer’ who teaches us via ‘what’s in the way’ (hint: old patterns and conditioning, fears and limitations, ego contraction, sense of separateness, and need for control) and where we need to drop the excess ‘baggage’ of these heavy duty engagements, was 2015 – 2017 in SAG, and crossed just before last Winter Solstice 2017 over the Space-Time Point into CAP (which SATURN rules), and where it reminds us of what’s real and has priority, and shows us through clear feedback what works and what doesn’t (esp. long term).

Reflections for SATURN now on the CAP side of the Winter Solstice Point:

  • Where / how can you find the Sage / Elder in you? 
  • What’s your experience of the Ground of Being?
  • When all is still and dark, what is undying?
  • How does the Inner Light return for you?
  • Living by ancient, timeless teachings can be very beneficial – always, esp. in times like these.

 

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

 

This year, JUPITER is in SAG. It will come close to the Galactic Ctre when it stations at 24°21′ SAG on Apr 10 to go retro from there, and will cross the GC in Nov 2019 before entering CAP on Dec 2, 2019.
A whole different energy with JUPITER round the GC than with SATURN in the last years:
Rather than dealing with / buying into and needing to unburden ourselves from old beliefs and stories that are obstacles and cause separation, with JUPITER in SAG, Deep Understanding, Trust, Heart Truth guiding our Path, the Freedom to live by it, and OpportUnities arise.

 

Blessings for the Galactic RE-Birthday to all of us NOW!

The energy to align with essential deep Truth (the ultimate Gift that comes ‘down the chimney’) so that we can actually WALK the Vision, and BE the Truth, the Light, the Love!

 

The SUN will reach the sacred SAG-to-CAP transition, at WINTER SOLSTICE 2017 – this year on Dec 21 at 2:25 pm PST.

Here is the Winter Solstice ‘Birth Chart’:

 

What’s so special about the WINTER SOLSTICE 2018:
It leads up to a FULL MOON  at the very first degree of CANCER (CAP for the SUN), just 19 hrs later, on Dec 22!

At WINTER SOLSTICE, the waxing MOON will be still in GEM, and the Solstice night will be an almost-Full MOON night (when the lunar energy is even stronger than the day after).
A polarity between the need to belong to a tribe or family, be with children / with the Inner Child, and to focus on priorities and purpose, which may be but doesn’t have to be a dilemma, ‘bridged’ by MARS / CHIRON between them (a square):
SoUlutions come from doing actively something about unity and connection, and surrendering to the healing quality of it. When we connect from the Heart it all comes and flows together, time flies or stands still – either way, it’s magical.

 

Also on the day of the WINTER SOLSTICE:
MERCURY in SAG (coming out of post-retro ‘shadow’) unites with JUPITER, and gears up to a square with NEPTUNE in PI on Christmas Eve, Dec 24.
This alignment is also quite relevant for the U.S., with MERCURY / JUPITER just 3° away from the country’s AC at 12°12′ SAG. 

More opportunity to find and speak our Heart Truth, be authentic, have fun, celebrate, see the bigger picture and the gifts of Life, and share generously.
With the NEPTUNE square, a romantic, dreamy, mystical and musical vibe at Christmas. It can be also prone to fantasies, illusions, and disappointments when expectations (SAG) aren’t met.
So take it easy, tune into wonder, and sound and song that unites.

 

Lastly, on the WINTER SOLSTICE day and the day after:
On Dec 21, VENUS in SCO goes into Water Trine with NEPTUNE in PI – Surfing the Waves of Love…
Then on Dec 22, VENUS in mid-SCO (doubly-SCO energy there) will square LILITH in mid-AQ (doubly-AQ there).
Intimacy and Depth of Love and Connection vs / and? Freedom and Independence?

 


Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices, incl. YULE – Winter Solstice

Let’s link up with the deep cosmic energy at this time of year!

And honour ancient traditions – in our Time and Place.

 

Speaking of Space-Time:

Space as we knew it has changed massively and irreversibly (Internet, globalization, worldwide travel boom etc.), during the period when PLUTO was in SAG (1995 – 2008). 

Time as we know it is changing now, with PLUTO in CAP (2008 – 2023).
Time is VERY relative, in fact it’s just a dimension that can be also molded, and transcended:
We energetically ‘run out of it’ when we race around in scarcity mode, and, with consumer mentality (ha, esp. before Christmas…), want more of what we don’t seem to ‘have’. Like a ‘hungry ghost’. The shadow of CAP (never satisfied materialist). 

In contrast, we ‘have all the time in the world’ when we slow down, and tune into ‘Kairos’ (time-as-quality) rather than ‘Chronos’ (time-as-quantity).

When we tap into ‘Deep Time’, and tune into Heart Time…
One of the best gifts we can give others, to ourselves, and to the World.
A theme that’s up now big time 🙂 and to REflect upon, with MERCURY& JUPITER in SAG, and SATURN in CAP!

How Deep is your Love? The ‘RE-newed VENUS’ moves through SCO (now for real – Dec 2 – Jan 7)

2 Dec

Picture: Birth of Venus (detail). Painting by S. Botticelli

It’s also all about VENUS!
She’s naturally at home in fair LIBRA – where she’s been again recently.
With and after her retro journey back from SCO to LI (Oct 5 – Nov 16), she’s come a long way…

A transformation and re-emergence of the Inner Feminine and Goddess energy has occurred.
With VENUS in SCO and the retro phase we’ve faced old painful / uncomfortable / repressed / in-the-closet / shamed / sexually related themes around the Feminine resulting in imbalanced and abusive relationship patterns that need to be processed, so that we come as women and men to a new place of empowerment from within – from which we naturally engage in and cultivate right relationship.

The ‘New VENUS’ re-entered her LIBRAn domain on Oct 31 – supporting new conscious choices that are a ‘better match’, more balanced, fair, and harmonious.
And hey, with the recent VENUS retro in LIBRA, it’s been important to ‘marry ourselves’ first!

Now with the New VENUS we’re tapping more easily (you too?) into the ‘Morning Star’ quality, meaning: We’re coming from our own solid Self Love and Self Value first, before choosing to engage with others.

 

Just before VENUS entered SCO, today Dec 2, she opposed on Nov 30 from end of LIBRA once more URANUS which is now retro at the end of ARIES. For the 3rd time, since it already happened (# 1) on Sept 12 when ‘she’ had barely entered SCO, and again (# 2) on Oct 31, in retro. 
Wow, this triple VENUS – URANUS activation on the ‘Tipping Point’ (VENUS) & ‘Settling Point’ (URANUS) has stirred up a lot between the Love Goddess and the notion for Autonomy / la Libertee.

When we truly love ourselves, and come from the Consciousness of Love (New VENUS post 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.
‘Tipping’ into freedom (URANUS) AND, intimacy and depth (SCO).

 

What’s with

VENUS’s dates with other Planetary Archetypes while she’s in SCO (Dec 2 – Jan 7)?

Early this week is quite scorpionic, since the Dark MOON in SCO (before the SAG NEW MOON on DEC 6 / 7) unites with VENUS in early SCO tomorrow Mon Dec 3, and with MERCURY in late SCO on Wed Dec 5:

After making a choice – hopefully in freedom and autonomy, it’s time to lovingly dive into the change that this choice brings (SCO).

When we do it with the depth of our Heart we’re in a place where intimacy and magic can unfold, and we may feel carried by something bigger and powerful.

 

After the early Dec ALCHEMY with MOON – VENUS – MERCURY in SCO, there will be just 5 VENUS connections with slower moving Planets – calm and powerful ones, except for some thrill between VENUS and LILITH on the day of the Full Moon:

Dec 16
VENUS in SCO sextile SATURN in CAP.
Love can be so simple.

Dec 21
VENUS in SCO trine NEPTUNE in PI.
Surfing the Waves of Love.

Dec 22 – Day of the CAN – CAP Full Moon
VENUS in SCO square LILITH in AQ.
Intimacy and Depth of Love and Connection vs / and? Freedom and Independence?

Dec 28
VENUS in SCO sextile PLUTO in SCO.
The Depth and Power of Love.

Jan 5
VENUS in SCO trine CHIRON in PI.
Love Heals.

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.

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

SAG New Moon with Jupiter (Dec 6 / 7) square Mars / Neptune: Surfing & Surrendering, and Trusting the Heart Journey…

1 Dec

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Friend,

How’s it going and rolling thus far, in the SAG season (since Nov 22), and with JUPITER now (since Nov 8, and for 12 more months) in SAG?

Lots of us are still in SCO-to-SAG PHOENIX transition mode, burning off a lot of intensity that’s been bubbling up and become too obvious to ignore, with JUPITER in SCO (Oct 2017 – Nov 2018), in the recent SCO-to-SAG Season.

Plus, MERCURY retro (Nov 16 – Dec 6) cruises back and forth 3x(!) over the PHOENIX Point as well…(the days round Oct 30, Dec 1, Dec 12).

As MERCURY just re-entered SCO (Dec 1 – 12), we’re called to go into the depth of our thoughts and feelings, and deeper / more intimately into  communicative exchange with others – and re-trieve ‘treasures in the dark’ (maybe at places we’ve avoided).

 

MERCURY retro now back in SCORPIO…
…turns our memories to people, places, language, and intimate connections that have been ‘under wraps’ or on the back burner – until we remember what it’s like and how it touches us to talk with them or think / talk about these things.
Follow the prompting and synchronicities that guide you together! 

Rolling through a dark SCO wave or diving into a dark calm lake has us meet and touch on those places we usually avoid. As scary as they seem – they show us (sometimes through extremes) what makes us feel truly human and alive. Of the same Earth, going back to the same Earth.

 

Deep knowing from an inner Scorpionic place brings us back to the Heart, and gives everything a whole different meaning and direction (SAG). Thus is the Transformation from heavy ‘lead’ to Heart Gold..

Sounds like this has to do with MERCURY’s ‘mission’ back through SCO (in its role as the Alchemist!), before fully rising in SAG on 12/12.
So let’s tune into the signs and messages, and how they can change us – if we let them in.

 

VENUS will dive into SCORPIO too – tomorrow Dec 2 until Jan 7:
How Deep is Your Love?

After making a choice – hopefully in freedom and autonomy (VENUS in late LI opposing URANUS in ARIES yesterday Nov 30) it’s time to lovingly dive into the change that this choice brings (SCO).

When we do it with the depth of our Heart we’re in a place where intimacy and magic can unfold, and we may feel carried by something bigger and powerful.

The dark-before-NEW MOON will be in dark SCO too (Mon – Wed Dec 3 – 5) – evoking deep emotional responses to what we’re going through, and facilitating transformation of what has been stuck or hidden, esp. in the fields of communication (MERCURY – what have you been hiding / not processed fully, etc?) and attractions / love / intimacy (VENUS).
Can be quite magic-all if we let it – and follow our M-r / SCO intuition and instinct.
Trust the Lunar Midwife for transformation!


The Scorpionic ALCHEMY that’s on now via MERCURY, VENUS, and the MOON – leading us to a higher level of Sagittarian freedom.

 

Towards the SAG New MOON with JUPITER

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius –Painting by Johfra Bosschart

As we’re moving towards the time of longest darkness (Northern Hemisphere) SAGITTARIUS initiates us into the Inner Light:

The Heart lantern shines on our path (as the Hermit’s
in the SAG painting…). The Advent candle lights celebrate the trust in the daylight and Christ light returning, the trust in the birth of the Divine Son at Christmas / Re-birth of the Sun at Winter Solstice.

Where is it going?
Where are we going?

And equally important:
Where do we ‘come from’, as we move in a certain direction / are on our Path?

Are we in Body-Mind-Heart-Spirit alignment in our movement, not on a guilt trip (Centaur, carrying the goat skin on his shoulder as a reminder), aiming high, divinely ignited (Zeus’s thunderbolt igniting the SAG arrow)?

The Scorpionic ‘Dark Moon’ incubation phase (with MERCURY, VENUS, and the MOON) can help us process and prepare, before the Journey with / in the SAG NEW MOON phase begins which also initiates JUPITER more fully into SAG.

 

Let’s see how the

SAG New Moon shows up, and what she shows us, with her ‘birth chart:

From the West Coast perspective, the New Moon will be on Dec 6 at 11:20 pm PST – from MST on eastward, it will be Dec 7 already.

 

 

So, here’s the MOON having passed JUPITER (at 6:31 am PST on Dec 6), and meeting the SUN in mid-SAG:
A BIG New MOON – birthing and blessing the Heart Truth and its Gifts (JUPITER in SAG).

…while the SUN / MOON union squares the MARS / NEPTUNE union in PI (which in itself is a rare alignment – only comes every 2 years, exact on Dec 7).

Lots of movement and flow…
Rather than feeding stories of overwhelm, disorientation and disappointment (which all could come up in this ‘SAG – PI cocktail’ too, or trying to push or stop the energetic waves (forget it!) let’s remember to surf them…
It’s literally a Go with the Flow vibe.
And to keep it Buddha-ful…

 

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


Let’s tune in, to see what else is going on in the watery world of PISCES, and how SAG brings the Spirit Fire to it:

MARS’s meeting with NEPTUNE in PI on Dec 7 happens on the day before…

CHIRON in late PI goes from retro to direct (Dec 8).

This watery cocktail is on in the first half of December, and calls for relaxing, surrendering, being open, flexible, adaptable, unattached, ‘rolling with things’, listening to the music, diving into an energy that feeds us, and surfing what-IS – very therapeutic.
…esp. in pre-Christmas times that can paradoxically get so hectic.

 

Centaur Chiron with the Wounding Arrow

The SAG NEW MOON ‘births’ CHIRON into forward motion (from Dec 8 on), after its yearly 5-months retro phase (since July 4).

CHIRON retro started this year from early ARIES, and went back into PISCES (where it’s been since 2010!) on Sept 25, cruising on the PI – AR ‘Emergence Point’ 2018 / 19:
Out of Oneness / Connectedness emerges a new beginning in authentic presence.
Its lower vibration is emergency and survival.

Have you experienced (perhaps old / re-curring) ‘wounding’ – and its Medicine! – through

  • …being either so immersed and overwhelmed that you lose yourself – and might have gotten wounded, to remind you of being more present and in natural me-first priority?
  • …or feeling disconnected, and perhaps going into compensations like addictions that ‘connect’ you yet take you out of presence, and found you need to show up again authentically – which can lead to healthier connections?
  • …or combinations / variations of the theme?


As the Piscean tide of CHIRON is turning we can more easily ‘surf the waves of Life’, express the Medicine we’ve re-ceived outwardly, and show up authentically
 (as CHIRON will fully go into ARIES from Feb 18, 2019 on).

And YES, you got it: CHIRON is a Centaur like SAG.
According to a version of the mythological CHIRON story, he transforms into SAG(!) as the culmination of his Hero’s / Healer’s / Teacher’s Journey.

There’s a natural inner connection between the SAG wisdom and inner Heart knowing that is re-initiated with the New MOON, and with CHIRON at the very end of PI / end of the Zodiac Journey:
Connection (PI) Heals (CHIRON), and ultimate Teaching (CHIRON) shows: ALL is Connected (PI). 
How does immersing in the ‘knowing Field’ affect your Heart and your Journey (SAG)?

 

Stationary CHIRON in late PI is also one of the points of contact in the Grand Water Trine, together with stationary MERCURY (going direct 10 hrs before the New Moon!) in late SCO / on the ‘Phoenix Point’, and the Lunar North Node in late CAN. 
Late (last 10 degrees) Water signs have a PISCES undertone – yes, more Piscean energy…
Let’s allow caring gentleness-in-oneness (late CAN NN) touch the place where we may come through deep-dive realizations of the nature of Mind (as in: thoughts and emotions) (MERCURY retro / stat in late SCO), and meet the Medicine of connecting in what’s always here – a unified field (CHIRON in late PI). It allows things to release, heal, and bring us back into natural flow.

 

The Lunar North Node in late CAN forms a square with VENUS (which was exact last week when ‘she’ was in late LI, and easing off as ‘she’ dives into SCO tomorrow Dec 2) and a square with URANUS retro in late AR (this one’s exact on Dec 2 / 3, and in effect Nov / Dec) – can you see the red T-square pointing to the North Node? 

The late CAN NN is quite a focal point as both the T-square and the Water Trine hinge on it.
A call for choices (VENUS on the LI – SCO ‘Tipping Point’) to be authentic (URANUS retro in late AR):
When we truly love ourselves, and come from the Consciousness of Love (supported by the ‘New VENUS’ post-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.
‘Tipping’ into freedom AND depth – with gentleness and compassion – in awareness All is ONE (late CAN with PI undertone).

 

Phoenix

The NEW MOON in mid-SAG (which has a LEO undertone), together with JUPITER nearby, and Winged Messenger MERCURY coming out of retro at the end of SCO / on the ‘Phoenix Point’:
A call to tune into the Loving Heart, and trust the Journey as it unfolds, surf, fly, and all! ❤ 

 

May the Spirit of the Heart, Sagittarian Trust and Piscean Faith & Surrender bless our Journey with the SAG New Moon and beyond!

The SUN enters SAG (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Raising Vibrations, with the Inner Heart Light

22 Nov

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Friend,

You’ve probably already seen my post for the FULL MOON in GEM – SAG this evening.

Here’s one dedicated to the SUN’s Journey through SAG this year (Nov 22 – Dec 21).

Today Nov 22 at 1:01 am PST (ha – just 1/2 hr ago), the SUN moved across the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCORPIO to SAGITTARIUS – following this year the example of grand JUPITER.

 

Refreshingly ‘Simple’ – Photo by Melanie, Nov. 2016

 

Once again in the yearly cycle, we will have burnt a lot through and off, and rise again… from the deep intense Scorpionic ‘underwater’ realm to a fiery, spirited Sagittarian sense of knowing: “We got through it, and see the picture more clearly now!”.

 

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius –
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

Always a good reminder that the Sagittarian Archer/ess pulls the arrow back to her / his HEART while / before aiming high!
With JUPITER now in SAG leading the way, we have an even deeper (coming from 13 months in SCORPIO) under-standing of why we’re moving in a certain direction, and where we’re coming from…

As we connect in Heart Consciousness (SUN in SAG) we not only rise in our own vibration but raise vibrations that affect those around us, and energetically a whole ‘field’ in an inspiring way.

If you’re a Sagittarian by SUN sign you would have had SATURN on your SUN sometime between 2015 and end of 2017,major maturation of Spirit (that’s ‘due’ every 29 years), and perhaps some karmic ‘graduation tests’ too, when it comes to trusting yourself, your intuition and knowing, being in your natural authority, and on your Path. Where are you at in that regard now?

This year (until Dec 2, 2019), mighty JUPITER is in your Solar energy field, supporting you to inspire us with your gifts in a BIG way – because you can – and believe in yourself and your Spirit connection!

Right at the beginning of SAG, on the ‘Phoenix Point’ the SUN unites with JUPITER on Nov 25 / 26 – giving us a boost of energy to Trust the Journey!
The SAG SUN will square MARS and NEPTUNE in PI on Dec 2 / 7 (which is also the day of the SAG New MOON) – Trust, Surrender, and Going with the Fun and the Flow are ON.

 

Sending Love, and Blessings of Light & Joy on your Path!
And Blessings for the Full Moon in GEM – SAG this eve – Speaking our Heart Truth!

MARS in PISCES (Nov 15 – Dec 31) – Surfing the Cosmic Waves!

14 Nov

Hi Cosmo-Terrestrial Surfers,

Sensing it?
MARS will
 (YES, it will!) leave AQ where it’s been basically forever (well, since the TAU New MOON on May 15!) due to its retro phase this Summer (which took MARS slightly back into CAP).

Loving the picture on the Voyager Tarot card Man of Cups – Surfer that I chose for MARS in PISCES.
It also contains a blossoming Horse cornucopia (so JUPITER in SAG) – symbolizing the exhilarating, ecstatic joy MARS in PISCES can engender. 

 

Has the Inner Masculine been re-calibrated in your Life under the Summer of MARS Retro (and the Retro Record Summer)?

Also reflected in your relationships with men in your life if you’re on the feminine side of the spectrum…?
Which kind of masculine energy shows up in your life and through you, and how has that changed since the Summer?
How are Men in Society (MARS in AQ) changing? 
Well, they are, as the Times they are a-changing, the CAP Patriarchy looses its power, and forces of Transformation sweep up the shadow and regenerate it.

MARS will enter PISCES tomorrow Nov 15 where it’ll be exactly until the last day of the year, Dec 31 – on the last degree of the Zodiac, before entering freshly into the New Year in ARIES. Nice natural alignment job, Mr. MARS!

The Piscean MARS isn’t so much into fighting, rather into chilling, relaxing, connecting, dancing, surfing, and the ‘pursuit’ of all things spiritual and transcendental including altered states – pursuit is an oxymoron here of course since it’s rather about rolling with it (PISCES is always so paradoxical, there we have it again…). It all comes together when MARS meets NEPTUNE on Dec 7.

 

Neptunian ‘Portrait’ by NASA’s Hubble – Doesn’t it look tie dyed? 🙂

Which Transit combos are up with MARS in PI?

Nov 15 / 16
The freshly immersed PISCES MOON meets MARS – an Initiation into Being…
Oh yeah, we’re also in the MERCURY ‘storm’ mode, going retro on Nov 16, plus VENUS turns from retro to direct, and the Nodes shift into CAP – CANCER – all on the 16th!

The PISCES MOON vibe rolls out through Saturday.

Enjoy the music, groove through the evening, chill-ax, nap as needed, swim, float, be ok with the comings and goings and impermanence of things (like water through your fingers or a beautiful piano piece…) and follow the flow of natural energy, as we’re in the heart of the ‘dark season’…
No need to ‘go by the plan’, rather be flexible and see what the World shows you!
Be gentle and caring! What really are your needs?


One thing I love about being aware of the Astro sphere is to know “it’s the weather” when I could take things personally – no need to ‘pick those vibes up’ and
identify with them – quite freeing… and being able to consciously channel the energy into what would be a good fit for it.

 

Nov 19
MARS freshly in PI squares JUPITER freshly in SAG!
Adventure Calling. What moves you? Be ok with the Unknown!

 

Nov 26
MERCURY retro in SAG – just about to meet the SUN – squares MARS in PI.
Be fluid, ‘step into liquid’ (title of a surfer movie), and ride the Heart Waves of Love…
While the Mind takes a back seat, just helps to connect the dots, and smiles at synchronicities and magic that couldn’t have humanly possibly been ‘created’.

Capricorn the Sea Goat – did you know?

 

Nov 27
MARS in PI sextile SATURN in CAP.
Good to get some footing again in this whole fluidity ‘spiel’ where we could also get lost…
I.o.w., chopping wood & carrying water – the ‘simple and ordinary things in life’ is where the Ground of Being can be found.

 

Dec 7
The central aspect of MARS in PI – its meeting with NEPTUNE.
It’s also the day before CHIRON in late PI goes from retro to direct.
This mix vibe is on in the first half of December, and calls for relax and adaptable, unattached ‘rolling with things’ – surfing what-IS can be very therapeutic.
Ha, esp. in pre-Christmas times that can paradoxically get so hectic. Brings us back into the Spirit.

 

Dec 13 – 15
…will be another very PISCEAN 3-day phase, with the MOON, NEPTUNE, MARS, and CHIRON in the oceanic energy field.
Just BE.

 

Dec 16
MARS in PI sextile PLUTO in CAP.
More ‘footing’, on a deep Soul level if you will.
Bring the flow into the core of yourself – or maybe re-discover it there.

 

Dec 28 / 29
Rolling out the year and the MARS in PI season as MARS connects with CHIRON.
Now we know how to go for what’s the Medicine (or perhaps to let go of other things that are in the way).

 

Dec 31
MARS emerges out of the Piscean Waters freshly into its ARIES domain to start the New Year with renewed energy and zest.

Lots going on in the first week of the New Year 2019, incl. a Solar Eclipse New Moon on Jan 5!

We better relax before! 😉

 

Your Piscean Sides (AC, SUN, MOON, Planets, Nodes)…

…get activated by MARS over the next weeks:
If they’ve been for a long time in the ‘background’ or rather passive MARS gives it a boost, to go for what you want – or rather what the Universe wants you to do and show up as.
The area of life related to the House PISCES is in your chart also gets activated to come alive.

If you have a hunch this could be YOU we could check in in a private session, for MARS awareness-in-action.

 

 

So that’s it from my side.
Ride the Cosmic Waves of Regeneration – and on-going Blessings for the Rising Phoenix!

Light & Love!
Melanie
