Blessings for the sacred season of Central Summer!

The Celtic ‘gate of power’ Lammas / Lughnassad is now being celebrated

Traditionally that’s on Aug 1.
Exact mid (15°) LEO would be actually a few days later, Aug 7 / 8 – on the day of the AQ – LEO FULL MOON Lunar Eclipse!

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

Many harvest festivals are starting at this time.

And it’s the celebration of CERES the grain goddess.
Presently, Asteroid CERES dwells (since early July) for a Summer ‘episode’ in maternal CANCER, until end of Sept, before giving LEO the honour of her appearance.

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!

 

 

ARIES MOON Alert! Igniting the Spirit, for a FIERY Week and Month!

15 Jul
 
Cornucopia FractalHave you noticed the shift from the super flowy, immersive PISCES MOON mode / mood on July 13 / 14, to a vibrant, exciting, dynamic, energetic, sparkly and spunky vibe, since today (July 15)?
 
Yep, that’s the ARIES MOON – igniting not only a fiery weekend where we better find creative outlets for all that energy, like: spontaneity and being in the moment – or else…
Since the MOON in ARIES is in ‘mutual reception’ (a double whammy) with MARS (ruler of ARIES) presently in CANCER (the home of the MOON) a lot of emotions can be provoked, evoked, stirred up (which is not a ‘bad thing’, it just could lead to premature reactions, and really, really needing to ‘do your thing’… – yet that might be just something in the moment, don’t break up over it!).
It IS a kind of emergency / alert mode. What’s up NOW? How are you in THIS moment? Maybe something’s calling, to really, really get started with…?
 
The ARIES MOON already opposed JUPITER in LIBRA this eve, and will go into trine with MERCURY in fiery LEO tonight:
Let’s appreciate every new day (and moment), all our Relations, speak from the Heart, and be authentic!
Tomorrow, July 16, the ARIES MOON will create a square with PLUTO retro in CAP, trine SATURN retro in SAG, square MARS in CANCER, and finally – tatahhhh! – meet its ‘higher octave’, the transpersonal URANUS!
Woohoo, that’s a handful of lunar alignments in one day!
Let’s ignite the Spirit, and create with Life Force!

What excites and inspires you these days?

 
For me, it’s been my Birthday, and all the wonderful wishes and blessings I received – almost overwhelming! -, and the Art: Seeing lovely friends at the Art Walk, and meeting artists – all so LIBRA – , and appreciating our artistic Victoria.
 
The MOON / URANUS ‘grand finale’ tomorrow is like fireworks of liberation, inspiration, newness, innovativeness, freshness, and rebirth!
 
 
The ARIES MOON gets the ball rolling, for an even more FIERY week, and month to come:
 
Lionesses_Drinking
  • MARS will go into LEO on July 20 – and will we ever notice a shift, from the CANCER MARS (since early June) mode that has been rather introverted, recluse, even regressive, sensitive, ‘homey’, self protective, self caring, to a self expressive energy boost: Show your Colours, be YOU!
  • On July 22, the SUN goes into LEO – full Summer glow!
  • And on July 23 will be the early LEO NEW MOON with MARS!
 
More about all that burst of Colour and Creation… soon.
You already feel it, don’t you?!

VENUS in GEMINI x MERCURY in LEO = Summer De-Light!

6 Jul

Double De-Light-ful News:

Charming VENUS (presently ‘Morning Star’, rising before the SUN) just entered GEMINI on July 4 – to breeze like a gorgeous butterfly through the airy Alchemist energy until July 31.

Have you noticed too? So many really attractive things to learn and talk about, these days!
I found a few cool podcasts, been digging into my books, and found a few good Summer reads, discovered treasures among my Astro course material – and just offered two exciting new ones (both with online participation option):
Astro Archetypes Summer Immersion – with Archetypes Pairs! 🙂 – starting July 25.
Jupiter Journaling Journey– starting Aug 2.

And then, the languages… delighting in speaking / writing French these days, juste un peu… and talking German with family…

GEMINI is the Alchemist of the Zodiac – bridging polarities and dualities.
And the shortest bridge between people can me just a smile and a kind word 🙂

If YOU have GEMINI in your chart (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets), enjoy being a magnet this month, like a flower to butterflies!
So much to learn from nature and people… and they can learn from you.
Also, it’s a nice time for writing, in loving, relational ways (VENUS).
And for those Summer reads…

 

2 major ‘dance encounters’ for VENUS in GEM:

On July 17, VENUS will go into square with NEPTUNE (‘her higher octave) in PISCES (where VENUS is exalted – ONE Love!):
Taking the GEM interests and learning to a sublime, unifying level. Asking deep ‘unanswerable’ questions that take us to the ONE.

On July 18, VENUS will go into a de-light-full trine with JUPITER in ‘her’ LIBRAN world: 
Making wise choices that really speak to the Heart. Seeing the mirror effect with partners-in-Life (on all levels). Communicating with open-hearted curiosity.

Bright Discovery – Photo by Melanie, July 2017

 

Speaking of GEMINI – its ruling planet MERCURY, the Alchemist Archetype, a.k.a. Mind Mentor, a.k.a. Trickster, just moved yesterday July 5 out of the cozy Cancer zone, into radiant LEO – noticing a shift?

Show your colours (HA, just in time for Pride week!), and speak in a confident, creative, expressive, passionate, colourful way too!
Be the Heart-ist!
Say it from the Heart, be warm and generous, and HAVE FUN!

 

2 major MERCURY grooves too, creating a Grand Fire Trine:

On July 17, MERCURY in LEO will go into Fire Trine with SATURN in SAG.
On July 24,
MERCURY will go into Fire Trine with (it’s ‘higher octave’) URANUS in AR.

Acknowledging ‘reality check’ (choose your journey well, and, above all: know where you COME from) leads to freedom to be YOU!

 

MERCURY will be in LEO until July 25, to move into VIRGO – but come BACK to LEO (yes, yes, because it’ll go retro, Aug 12 – Sept 5!) Aug 31 – Sept 9!
Lots of creative passion to discover this Summer!

* SIRIUS RISING (Aug 8) * Integrate and Radiate the Spiritual Sun!

8 Aug
Sirius

SIRIUS

 

 

SIRIUS the ‘Dog Star’ (brightest star in the constellation Canis Major, ‘the Dog’) and in fact brightest star in the night sky(!) (excellent descriptions at http://www.crystalinks.com/sirius.html and http://www.souledout.org/nightsky/dogdays/dogdays.html) is now RISING again before the SUN – the ‘Heliacal Rising’ (Helios = Sun in Greek), this year today Aug 8 (which is also the 08 / 08 ‘Lion’s Gate’ – the Centre of the fixed signs, TAU, LEO, SCO, and AQ, are Gates of Power)…
…while hot Leo Days (‘Dog Days of Summer’) are here to hopefully stay a bit longer, in the Northern Hemisphere.

 

Leo_Sirius_Team

Walk with your Cat or / and Dog friend, (not only) under the conjunction of the SUN in LEO the Lion, with SIRIUS the Dog Star! 🙂

 

A special treat awaits you and your dog(!) again this year, at this fine occasion:

* Your Dog-Star, and Star-Dog @ Sirius Rising: Cosmic Canine Compatibility THU Aug 11 – info below, under Astro~Experiences, and at the FB event:

https://www.facebook.com/events/497175377151414/

 

When Sirius the brightest star in the night sky re-appears before the SUN, it is the time for a ‘Spiritual SUN’, or Heart of our physical SUN to be born. We are invited to align with this energy.

 

Isis Papyrus

Egyptian Goddess Isis

 

Ancient Egypt honoured the yearly reappearance of Sirius which announced the flooding of the Nile as the Goddess Isis, heavenly wife of Osiris, and Mother of Horus. http://www.crystalinks.com/isis.html, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osiris_myth

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).

 

Arcimboldo_Summer

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!

1st house: How you show up. Celebrate and BE Yourself!

1 Aug

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

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.
