Super-LEO New Moon (July 31) with VENUS & MARS – Igniting Creative Passion & Power – with Love.

30 Jul

Dear Cosmic Friend,

Leo-nasadh

Artist of this amaaaazing piece unfortunately unknown (to me – I’m sure s/he’s well known!)

Can you feel HER coming?
Rather in a blaaah mode?
Or straight-out moody?

The LEO New MOON is just 1-2 days off – on JULY 31 / AUG 1 (depending on your time zone).
A very FIERY one!

Even though the gentle dark CANCER MOON now & up to July 31 in the morning, opposing SATURN & PLUTO in CAP and connecting with MERCURY on its last retro day today July 30 doesn’t make it appear so…

Now it’s Time for self-care, to feel into and release what’s preventing us from radiating Love Heart-fully as in LEO!

 

And then – LEO galore:
SUN, MOON, VENUS, and MARS all in Fiery Feline mode.

* How’s your creative FIRE and Love for Life these days?

* Do you Live the Life you Love?
The CAT does, unapologetically.

* Do you Love yourSELF fully?

* Do you stand in the Light of your SoUlar Being?
Show Time – of the Radiant Heart!

…Central questions for LEO – the Zodiac energy of central Summer!

The upcoming very FIERY LEO New Moon (surrounded by VENUS & MARS both now also in LEO) is planting Seeds of Love & Creative Potency into our cosmic-human Beingness.

If we choose to invoke, welcome, and nurture it, supported by the MOON in CANCER now, and by the nodal energy and MERCURY turning direct in late CANCER on the New MOON day!

This is the chance to start fresh, from heart-full Self Love!
And to let loving Creativity from the core of our Being take over!

You gotta love the Sabian Symbol that goes with the New Moon degree!

 

What’s Special about the Super-LEO NEW MOON on July 31 / Aug 1?

A LOT!

 

  • LEO IS special! 😉

 

  • It’s the 2nd New Moon of July – the 1st one was on July 2 – a Total Solar Eclipse.
    Some call that phenomenon ‘Black Moon’ (parallel to ‘Blue Moon’ as the 2nd Full Moon in a month) which I find misleading, since it can be confused with the Dark Moon phase before each New Moon. And every New Moon is actually a ‘Black Moon’ since the MOON is invisible next to the SUN.
    By the way, there’s no astrological significance to the fact that July has two New Moons – since Astrology goes by cosmic cycles, not by human made calendars. 
    Except – that’s special and a tad dramatic – as in: LEO. 🙂

 

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices, and the fixed ‘Gates of Power’: Beltane, LAMMAS, Samhain / Halloween, and Imbolc.

  • The New MOON comes just before Lammas / Lughnassadh – the Summer mid-season Harvest Festival in the Celtic Calendar, celebrated on Aug. 2Leading over to 08 / 08 mid-LEO / mid-Summer ‘Gate of Power’ where energy concentrates and emanates:
    The LEO Power to LOVE. ❤

 

  • Blue Star SIRIUS

    The LEO New MOON is – like its ‘Sister MOON’ – the New MOON / TSE in CANCER on July 2 related to SIRIUS!
    The TSE in CANCER was (very unusual!) next to SIRIUS – an Initiation into Liberation!

    The LEO New MOON on JULY 31 / Aug 1 heralds the Rising of SIRIUS the ‘Dog Star’ (brightest star in the Dog constellation Canis Major, and in the night sky!).
    SIRIUS will rise again before the SUN – the ‘Heliacal Rising’ (Helios = SUN in Greek)! on 08 / 08! We’re in SIRIUS Season…

    If you’re intrigued by that, and feel connected to SIRIUS (as I am) here’s the little seasonal SIRIUS Rising article – REbirth of the Spiritual SUN for you.

 

  • Creative SOLar Fire is being channeled via the LEO New MOON. A SoLunar conception  of creative, heartful, playful LEO expression.
    LEO is even (of course!) ruled by the SUN – Life Force, Creativity, Pure Light & Consciousness.
    As with every New Moon, a seed is planted ‘in the dark’, and we can’t see it sprout yet until… it does. 🙂 Yet something stirs within… 
    The SEED of LOVE, nurtured when we live lovingly.
    LOVE is the force in the Universe that creates – and fuels our human creativity.
    Love is Creative Alchemy.

 

Hermes / Mercury, with winged helmet, sandals, and Caduceus / serpent staff of the healer (“Like heals Like”)

  • Speaking of Alchemy –
    MERCURY the Alchemist & Cosmic Messenger presently in CANCER
    (the Zodiac vibe closely related to the MOON) goes out of retro on the day of the New MOON!
    Doesn’t happen very often (statistically once every 29th M-r = about once every 10 years)!


    Being attuned to the cosmic MERCURial field suggests:
    * Coming gradually out of our crab shell, and integrating the Memories (wow, this one brought a whole flood od memories…!), REflections, INsights, and Messages from within that we received during the retro phase (practically throughout July) into the here-now.* Discerning temporary mercurial / mental-emotional ‘weather and how we really feel about things.* Consciously & lovingly communicating (the gift of MERCURY having met the SUN and VENUS) what has come up (maybe what hasn’t been said before) and is important now.

    The LEO New MOON ‘dramatically’ marks the Mercurial turnaround, giving it special attention, plus the North Node in CANCER is also close to MERCURY (see chart below) – pointing out how important it is to care, and honour our true feelings.Since this M-r turnaround comes right with the New MOON, I took a look at the Sabian Symbol of the turnaround degree at almost exactly 24° CANCER.
    See below what that reveals and how the oracle guides us!

 

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

 

  • The New MOON in LEO CAT-alyzes 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 (July until Sept), with 5 – 6 Planets simultaneously retro (6 until MERCURY is out of retro on Aug 1) 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…
    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 Apr 10 – 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 (going 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..…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.

 

The cosmic map of the Super-LEO New MOON below makes it so clear:
How strong LEO becomes, and how much fiery energy is showing up now!


Time to show our Colours, Ignite Creative Passion & Power, and Create from the Heart.

The SUN Rules LEO. Painting by Johfra Bosschart

YES! LEO rules the fiery Solar Plexus – just take a look at that glow-rious Solar Lion on the JB picture! – which is in Chakra Astrology related to MARS, as well as the Heart Chakra – related to VENUS, and the Crown Chakra – related to the SUN.

All of them, SUN, VENUS, and MARS are now in LEO, and all these 3 Chakras get lit up now!
Bright Summer sunlight clearly helps too 🙂

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:
LIVING LIFE LOVINGLY guides us!

The LEO New MOON catalyzes that energy – a seed is being planted.

The first ‘sprouting’ can be seen at the AQ – LEO FULL MOON on Aug 15.
What are we part of in co-creation these days, while  bringing your own passionate creativity to it???

 

Play Time!

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot card Child of Worlds – Player

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 Free the Inner Artist!


Early to mid LEO is in your chart,
activated by the Super-LEO New MOON points to the area of life that invites you to be receptive (the MOON), and conscious (the SUN) around new authentic creativity and playful lovingness!

Maybe there are even Planets there?
Bring new life affirming & loving energy to those situations & inner Archetypes!

 

Voila, here is the cosmic map of the LEO New MOON!

…which will be exact at 8:12 pm PDT on July 31.

Uhhh, it’s got lots of FIRE in it.
The Element of Spirit rules – maybe even Spirit over Matter (Earth), definitely over Mind (zero Air). 

So let’s not overthink.

Let’s Show up Authentically – ARIES,
Live from Love – LEO,
and Trust the Journey – SAG!

 

The New MOON in LEO is surrounded by Love & Passion, compliments VENUS in early LEO and MARS in late LEO!
An extra cosmic boost to put yourself out, and show your Colours of the Heart!

Plus, both VENUS & MARS are quite active & activated now –
Beautiful celestial offerings and pointers!



VENUS goes into Healing Fire Trine with CHIRON retro in ARIES (exact Aug 1) and into Liberating  square with URANUS in TAU (exact on Aug 2). The energy has been building since VENUS entered LEO on July 27, and the New MOON brings it out.

AUG 1
VENUS in Fire Trine with CHIRON retro in ARIES
A New Love?
Being authentically & freshly present from the inside-out is healing (CHIRON retro in ARIES), and goes with being self-loving / life-loving, naturally brilliant and magnetic (VENUS in LEO)!

AUG 2
VENUS squares URANUS in TAU

No room for old sticky attachments.
Set yourself free, and love yourself. Set your Heart on Fire!

 

Roaring MARS in LEO is now the Apex of a Yod (two quincunxes pointing to MARS) – a ‘Find the Way’ aspect, a rare Finger of God / Celestial Pointer configuration.
The Yod window is exact from July 30 (quincunx to NEPTUNE) to Aug 4 (quincunx to PLUTO) – yet extends beyond that – esp. for you purrrsonally, if MARS in LEO activates points / Planets in your chart.

JULY 30

MARS in LEO in quincunx with NEPTUNE retro in PISCES
Know what You want, yet allow the Universe to arrange things for the Highest Good of All! BE in the ONE, maybe experienced as: Being in creative flow state, and fueled by creative passion.

AUG 4

MARS in LEO in quincunx with PLUTO retro in CAP
Let your personal will & passion and Higher Power work in unison.
Tap into true Strength. 

 

Finding the Way…

Voyager Tarot card VII – Chariot… Perfect for SAG / JUPITER and CANCER

Now is quite a phase of Quincunxses (those long green aspect lines)!

Besides the double-quincunx Yod to MARS (active end of July / early Aug) – see the MARS themes above…

There’s also the quincunx from JUPITER retro / stationary in mid SAG to the North Node in mid CANCER, active June until September.

Quincunx energy is about finding a way to connect & coordinate what seems ‘strange’ to each other and an ‘odd match’.
Now it’s about the two impulses to finding our Home / feeling safe and belonging (NN in CANCER) and being free to pursue Adventures, Journeys, and Opportunities (JUPITER in SAG).
Just heard from friends they found this purrfect motor home for their Journey together – niiice!
So yes, you CAN be both safe and on the Journey that calls you, both protective / protected while adventurous and out & about.

What helps in such situations is to ask the Universe / one’s Higher Self / God: How? Please show me the way!
And to allow the Universe to send you celestial pointers.
Happened for me almost continuously on my Epic Spring-into-Summer Journey in May / June, for which I’m so grateful!

 

The SUN & MOON in LEO go into quincunx with LILITH in PISCES – exact on AUG 1 / 2.
How does LEO & PISCES go together?
Maybe purrrfectly as in:
Showing of yourself without showing off, i.o.w., being surrendered, at ease, in the flow of Life, not taking anything purrrsonally, and at ease with just being YOU.
Like: Dance as if nobody watches…
The gloriously relaxed Charioteer on the card exemplifies that state too…

 

Aug 11 is a Big Shift Day

Noteworthy, and I’m sure you’re noticing:
Two Planetary Players change directions soon – on the same day, AUG 11!
Plus, MERCURY goes into LEO.


JUPITER in mid SAG (retro since Apr 10) goes direct again.
URANUS in early TAU goes retro (until Jan 10, 2020).

Sooo, Aug is a stationary month for both JUPITER & URANUS – giving both Archetypes extra attention as they’re in ‘U-turn’ mode, and hence moving slowly.
If you got any Astro features in early TAU / mid SAG you can’t miss it.
Both JUPITER & URANUS have to do with Freedom – a big theme this month.


* For JUPITER in SAG (until Dec 2) that means:

Freedom to move, grow, see the World, and see things the way you do.
Goes with perspective and understanding while generously live & let live.

After many inner Journeys to understand Life and see the bigger picture, maybe also Journeys to ‘old happy places’, under JUPITER retro since April 10….
…it’s time now to move forward-onward-upward, and elevate to ‘higher ground’ on all levels, with JUPITER in SAG going direct.

  • What’s possible and calling?
  • Where do trust & adventure, generosity & freedom come in?

 

Maverick Planet Uranus (NASA)

* For URANUS in TAU that looks like:

Liberation from sticky attachments,

Awakening from ‘fake’ security, and into your true Self.
EmBodying Freedom.

Maybe even (as J. Krishnamurti put it): Freedom that has no opposite.

Over the last 7 months of URANUS going direct / forward, we had lots of liberating paradigm shifts that set us free – maybe ‘involuntarily’ / surprisingly / shockingly so.
Now it’s time to integrate the experiences, and find unconditional Freedom within. 

 

 

 

No Time for the Old Empire

SATURN retro in mid CAP travels slowly but surely next to the Lunar South Node (all Spring and Summer 2019).

This ‘smells’ so much like endings, closures, esp. of the shadow / low and heavy vibration of CAP:
As in: Doing things the hard way, resisting and judging (others and self), wasting time and energy (on exactly that, or other rock-solid ineffective / damaging patterns), being the martyr and taking too much on, or a scapegoat, being stuck in pretend security that has a high price, being in guilt or scarcity mode… and getting drained by it all – you get the picture!

Feels prob heavy even just reading…

This really is the year (the PSE New MOON in CAP next to SATURN on Jan 5 set the tone) to let the ‘Old Empire’ expire.
Whatever your inner / outer ‘Old Empire’ is that had its time.
Good to check in with shadows / blind spots…
Find a way of honouring the Old for the purpose it has had, and give it a conscious farewell,  a ceremony perhaps even. And / or notice how symptoms of it / people and experiences that represent simply fall away. 

Energy is freed up for the CANCERian creativity.
The Universe and Nature are infinitely creative.
A Goddess thing ❤

How about for a change: Play first, work later.
Or better yet: Work playfully, and play purposefully.

MERCURY in turnaround mode close to the CANCER North Node has hopefully shown us that getting the mind as an advocate for ‘shoulds’ out of the way, and leading with playful joy raises the vibration, and connects in fun, magical, and creative ways.

 

And voila – as promised:

The Sabian Symbols for the New MOON and for MERCURY’s turnaround degrees

The New MOON will be at 8°36′ LEO.

LEO 9°:
GLASS BLOWERS SHAPE BEAUTIFUL VASES WITH THEIR CONTROLLED BREATHING.

Glass Art – free stock photo (Pixabay)

KEYNOTE: The need to involve one’s most spiritual and vital energies in the creative act if it is to produce significant and beautiful new forms.

The breath represents the power of the spirit, animator of all living manifestations. Because the glass blower uses his breath to shape the glass vessels, he is a fitting symbol of how deeply any creative individual has to involve his total being in his creation. He is also using the fire of the spirit — transpersonal inspiration — or, in another sense, the fire of deeply felt emotions. Any creative activity which does not involve both the “breath” and the “fire” cannot transform into beautiful artworks — or indeed into any new form of order — the raw materials, remains of the past (the “sand”).

This fourth stage of the twenty-sixth sequence symbolically shows us the technique required in true and successful transforming activity. It always implies CREATIVE INTENSITY.

Well, yes, Creative Intensity it is, with the LEO New MOON, next to VENUS, linked to healing CHIRON & liberating URANUS and MARS, linked to transcending NEPTUNE & transformational PLUTO.
If you feel genuinely passionate about something involve your total Being into the Creation – with the Fire of Spirit. Cosmic energies are SO supportive now.

When Spirit, Passion, and Power are with the Creation we’re on Fire, and the Creation has a Life of its own.
We’re born to co-create with the infinitely creative Universe!

 

MERCURY will turn from retro to direct at 24°01′ CAN.

CANCER 24°:
A WOMAN AND TWO MEN CASTAWAYS ON A SMALL ISLAND OF THE SOUTH SEAS.

Heart Island Tupai close to Bora Bora

KEYNOTE: The focalization of complex inner potentialities in harmonic and concrete relationships.

We are dealing here with a special phase of the process of integration. The woman and the two men represent the three-fold aspect of the human personality, particularly at this stage when one of these aspects — the emotional life (the woman) — is facing the possibility, if not the inevitability, of relating itself to both the spiritual and the mental. This confrontation occurs on a small island of the South Seas, and “south” always refers symbolically to the strong and passionate impulses of human nature. Somehow the three-fold consciousness has to develop a harmonious and well-integrated modus vivendi (a specific way of life). If successful, this will release powerful energies and will lead to the next symbolic scene.

We have reached the fourth stage of the twenty-third five-fold sequence. As is most often the case, we are introduced here to a specific technique — or at least to a problem of technique — in living. The three human beings should become integrated; but the form this integration will take seems left open. It has to be a concrete type of integration in terms of the emotional and biological drives of human nature (an island of the South Seas) and the field of integration is “small.” The key to the problem of relationship should be the realization of INTER-DEPENDENCE.

 

So interesting to find this symbol show up ‘synchronistically’ as a message for MERCURY retro-to-direct – since the integration of the emotional (CANCER), mental (MERCURY) and spiritual dimensions (the SUN which is now leading again, and MERCURY following – the effect of the M-r process) is also the point of the MERCURY retro process – which is often trivialized as ‘bad news’ (for our overly mentally identified world…).
M-r has again been an adjustment showing us that all levels indeed are interdependent, and that rationalizing emotions (which MERCURY can tend to when it meets the CANCERian world of feeling) needs to shift. Feelings need to be compassionately and safely seen and met by the Heart and by Consciousness (the SUN).
MERCURY can help us now communicate them, and let the world know in a kind way how we feel.

 

Wishing you a blessed and passionately inspired creative August,
Fueled by the LEO New MOON!

It’s MidSummer! Happy Lammas / Lughnassadh / LEO-nassad!

30 Jul

DSC02206

Blessings for the sacred season of Central Summer, dear ASTRO~NEWS Reader!

Central LEO is ‘double LEO’ (centre of the fixed sign, where energy concentrates):
Solid Summer Heat & Glow!

 

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the Equinoxes and Solstices, and the fixed ‘Gates of Power’: Beltane, LAMMAS / Lughnassadh, Samhain / Halloween, and Imbolc.

LAMMAS / LUGHNASSADH is traditionally celebrated on Aug 1.

Exact mid (15°) LEO would be actually a few days later,  Aug 7 / 8.

It’s the great festival of Lugh, or Lug, the great Celtic Sun King and God of Light.
At Lammas the Goddess is in Her aspect as Grain Mother, Harvest Mother, and Harvest Queen.

Grain is ripe to harvest, and in the country harvest festivals are starting now.
I grew up in the Bavarian country, and remember the golden glow of wheat fields…

You can find a beautiful description of Lammas traditions and suggestions for little rituals at this site The Goddess and the Green Man.

 

Demeter / Ceres Relief

 

And it’s the celebration of CERES the grain goddess.
Presently, Asteroid CERES dwells (since end of June until early Sept) in VIRGO, the sign of the Harvest Maiden.
How perfectly aligned – and supportive for us, in this super-retro Summer 2018 to re-align and bring the best of our work ‘in line’ for harvest, while Earth-Mothering our health and wellness too.

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.

AUGUST is Client Appreciation Month, at the occasion of the 18th anniversary of my Astrology practice!
Come on over, or let’s meet online, for a substantially discounted (11% – 22% – 33%, depending on how long you’ve been my client 😉 ) Astro session. And let your friends know!

 

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

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

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

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

* It’s MidSummer! Happy Lammas / Lughnassad / LEO-nassad!

Blessings for the sacred season of Central Summer!

The Celtic ‘gate of power’ Lammas / Lughnassad is now being celebrated. http://www.thewhitegoddess.co.uk/the_wheel_of_the_year/lammas.asp

Traditionally that’s on Aug 1. Exact mid (15°) Leo would be actually a few days later, Aug 7 / 8.

Central LEO is ‘double LEO’ (centre of the fixed sign, where energy concentrates): Solid Summer!

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with Ostara / Spring Equinox, Beltane, Litha / Summer Solstice, LUGHNASSAD, Mabon, Samhain, Yule, and Imbolc.

 

Many harvest festivals are starting at this time.

And it’s the celebration of CERES the grain goddess.
Presently, Asteroid CERES dwells (since mid July) for a Summer ‘episode’ in TAURUS, goes retro there in early Sept, back to fiery ARIES mid Oct (excellent for planting new seeds…) until into 2017.

The LEO New Moon tomorrow is a cosmic mirror of Lammas too: Planting seeds of bright, joyful self expression from the purity of Heart!

And actually, creativity and co-creation has been activated, with the Full Moon on July 19, on the CAP / AQ ‘Community Building’cusp (MOON) – CAN / LEO  ‘Creativity’ cusp (SUN).

Giuseppe Arcimboldo: Summer

 

I trust your co-creativity sky-rockets, and you are super inspired these days – straight from the Heart. Esp. arising from the area of life that corresponds with the astrological house where LEO is in your chart!
And that the ‘stinger’ from MARS in late, late SCORPIO hasn’t hijacked your process but shown you where, how, and why to go deeper. MARS will cross over the ‘PHOENIX POINT’ into SAG tomorrow! Onward-upward, fueled by the transformational process!

 

The LAMMAS LEO NEW MOON tomorrow Aug 2 (Blog post to follow) will be at 11° LEO.
Live Life Lovingly!
Access the LEO solid warmth-of-heart, and creative power in the area of life where mid LEO is in your chart!

AUG 1: HAPPY LAMMAS / LUGHNASAD / LEO-nasadh!

1 Aug

Blessings for the sacred season of Central Summer!
The Celtic ‘gate of power’ Lammas / Lughnasad is now being celebrated.

http://www.thewhitegoddess.co.uk/the_wheel_of_th…/lammas.asp


Traditionally that’s on Aug 1. Exact mid (15°) Leo would be actually a few days later, Aug 7 / 8.
Central LEO is ‘double LEO’ (centre of the fixed sign, where energy concentrates): Solid Summer!

Many harvest festivals are starting at this time.
And it’s the celebration of Ceres the grain goddess (we just addressed the 4 major Inner Asteroid Archetypes, incl. Ceres / Demeter on Monday – how timely aligned!)
The AQ – LEO Full Moon is a cosmic mirror of that too: Celebrating the fruits of our co-creativity and work, in Community!
And actually, new seeds for creativity were planted already, under the New Moon on July 18 on the CAN – LEO ‘Creativity Point’…., as I mentioned above.

 

Arcimboldo_Summer

Guiseppe Arcimboldo: Summer

How has it been for you so far?
I hope your co-creativity sky-rockets, and you are super inspired these days – straight from the Heart. Esp. arising from the area of life that corresponds with the astrological house where LEO is in your chart, and that the ‘stinger’ from Saturn retro in late Scorpio doesn’t block your process but shows you only where it has to go deeper.

Simple 101 guideline:
1st house: How you show up,
2nd house: What you have;
3rd house: Your environment,
4th house: Your home,
5th house: Your creativity,
6th house: Your work and health,
7th house: Your significant others,
8th house: Your deep involvement,
9th house: Your travels and worldviews,
10th house: Your calling and purpose,
11th house: Your community,
12th house: Your oneness with ALL.

Speaking of 101, or rather 202 in this case:
Astrology 202 Summer class Ascendant and Houses starts next WED Aug 5, and goes until Aug 26.
