SAG – GEMINI Full Moon / PLE in T-Square to MARS / NEPTUNE (June 5 / 6) – Connect the Dots, Speak Your Heart Truth… and Inquire!

4 Jun

Here comes the Strawberry & Rose Eclipse Moon of June!

So many beautiful flowers in full bloom now, incl. Wild Roses and cultivated Roses. Time to smell the Roses, and pick up their Heart Medicine. And to harvest Strawberries!

Eclipse Season of June / July is ON!

Initiated by tomorrow’s Penumbral / Partial Lunar Eclipse!

Visible in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Oceania!
Eclipse starting (the Moon moves into the Earth’s shadow) at 10:46 am PDT (not visible on the West Coast of course)
Maximum (partial, about 60%) Eclipse at 12:25 pm PDT.
End of Eclipse (the Moon moves out of Earth shadow) at 2:04 pm PDT.
Good illustration and data can be found at the Time & Date site.

Let’s tune in and release our own ‘Earth Shadow’ in the Eclipse window (10:46 am – 2:04 pm PDT) as the energy is there, visible or not. Of course, it still works in the time after the Full Moon 🙂 .
Suggestions: Meditation and release writing of ‘the old story’ (SAG MOON / South Node). A LOT is on our minds now anyway…

 

Penumbral / Partial Lunar Eclipse

 

So many names, so much diversity… directed by Nature.

You might already know…
Native Americans and other traditions around the World gave names to the Full Moons of the year. Each Nation / culture has given the Full Moons of the month different names, according to the Medicine of the Month.

 

Yes, this is the last Full Moon in Spring, after the Mid-LIBRA – Mid-ARIES ‘Pink’ Easter Super FULL MOON (Apr 7 / 8), and the Central SCORPIO -TAURUS Wesak SuperMoon (May 7).

The sequence of these three Spring Full Moons is in the esoteric tradition called
Festival of the Risen Christ (pre-Easter Full Moon in April)
Festival of the Buddha (Wesak Moon in May)
Festival of Humanity (SAG – GEM Full Moon in June) – may it be SO!


The previous Full Moons in LIBRA – AR, and SCO – TAU ‘funneled’ into this one, as LUNA, before her Fullness in SAG, traveled this week through LIBRA and SCORPIO – evoking themes of relatedness, balance, fairness, justice (LIBRA), and deep, dark processes (SCO), hopefully bringing us to core themes that are now ripe (Eclipse Full MOON) for Change-into-Freedom (SCO – SAG)!

How does this Full Moon Season MOVE YOU?

I invite you to follow the trail into the Heart of Astro~News, to find its gifts and Medicine through the read, and even more so:
In your HEART! 

 

Phoenix Heart-Fire Moon Moves Us!

Before tuning into the SAG FULL MOON, we went through the SCORPIO MOON on Tue / Wed (June 2 / 3) – the most intense of all lunar vibrations – which of course has ‘fed’ into tomorrow’s Full Moon.

Time to speak (GEM SUN) our Truth (SAG) about what touches us deeply, and about intense shadow things (SCO) as well.
May the Truth set us FREE!
Truth-s indeed, since there can’t be
just one Truth-fits-All, and Truth in Freedom entails freely finding one’s Hearth Truth.

Knowledge (GEM), Understanding (SAG), and mostly: Heart Truth & deep Wisdom IS Freedom!

 

 

We rise again – even more so when we’ve processed and cleared a lot in / through the scorpionic phase.
The pre-Full Moon is always most charged – and still reverberating the SCO – TAU Full Moon from May 7 – the Buddha Wesak Moon.

How about in retrospect tuning into the whole phase from the Full Moon in SCO (May 7) to the pre-Full Moon in SCO (June 2 / 3):

  • Where have you been emotionally ‘hooked’ yet couldn’t control the situation?
  • Where have you felt deeply affected (hurt over or passionate about something)?
  • How can / could you transform attachments (to a desired outcome / gain, or being stuck with the unwanted), and find freedom?
  • What’s a ‘game changer’ that brings the intense and ‘negative’ to the light, and restores Love?
  • What does the inner Buddha Nature say to all this, and where does it take you?

Have you noticed?
Since the MOON crossed over the ‘Phoenix Point’ into SAG
(today June 4 at 10:17 am PDT) the Spirit / mood lifted – and we could ‘come through what needed to be felt, ‘digested’, transformed, and alchemized, with new understanding and direction, rooted in the Heart.

The lunar SAG energy pulls us upward-onward – yay!
SAG after SCO is the ‘Phoenix out of the Ashes’, the soaring Eagle, the rebirth and widening of perspective:
To SEE is to be FREE!

Freedom and Truth are big for SAG, and so is an opening to a sense of humour.

When we come from the ego-head the Full Moon polarity of SUN & MOON turns easily into a very serious and divisive scenario.
Either horizontally: “Me here – you there; my truth vs. your truth”, or vertically: “I’m up here and know better than you.” / “They up there, us down here”.

What saves the day and the way is the HEART.
HEART Truth isn’t somebody’s truth, and not about right or wrong, doesn’t have an opposite, is inviting rather than dividing.
Coming and speaking from the Heart Truth is a big theme under the GEM – SAG Full Moon.

Is that up for you too?
Likely it’s related to the areas in life that the SAG – GEMINI Houses in your chart point to. Perhaps even your SUN, MOON, Nodes (we get to those in a minute…), and Planets are in GEM and / or SAG?

When the “me / us and them” or sense of “I / we know better” comes up, and creates an interpretation of perceptions that can turn into a ‘story’ it’s a good idea to inquire (GEM), a la Byron Katie, and deeply ask ourselves:

  • Is this true?
  • How do you know it’s true?
  • Who would you be without this truth / story?

Inquiring as in: questioning our assumptions, and also: asking deep existential questions about our True Nature is a great way of being with the SAG – GEM activation through the Full Moon.

 

Where in your chart is mid-SAG and mid-GEMINI?

That’s where you’re called to bridge, reconcile, and alchemize dualities and polarities when it comes to ‘The Truth’.
What helps is to go into dialogue, read / inform yourself, ask good questions, question the agenda / narrative (incl. your own!), learn about diverse voices, and bring lightness & brightness into the picture, while speaking your Heart Truth, now activated by the Eclipse FULL MOON.

Here’s a reference list for the astrological Houses – on one of the axis (e.g. 1st – 7th, 3rd – 9th) you’re going through a ‘light switch’ via the SAG MOON Eclipse and are lit up via the SUN / VENUS in GEM.

 

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

3rd House
You in Your Local Environment

4th House
You and Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

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

6th House
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House
Your Partners & Significant Others

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

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

10th House
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

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

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

 

 

Mid-GEMINI has an AQ, Mid-SAG has a LEO Undertone: “We’re All Stars in the Constellation of Love!”

Mercury Rules Gemini
Interchange and alchemical union of ‘opposites’
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

In the Decanates Model (undertones of the three 10º segments of each Zodiac sign) that I’ve been working with and have found to be very helpful…

 

  • The first 10º have an undertone of the cardinal sign in that element (e.g. for GEMINI it’s LIBRA, for TAURUS it’s CAP…)
  • The central 10º have an undertone of the fixed sign in that element (e.g. or SAG it’s LEO, for PISCES it’s SCORPIO…)
  • The last 10º have an undertone of the mutable sign in that element (e.g. for CAP it’s VIR, for ARIES it’s SAG)

If your birthday is at the beginning of a sign (let’s say: May 25, Dec 23, July 24), your Zodiac sign has a cardinal undertone: GEM / LIBRA, CAP / CAP, LEO / ARIES…) – very interesting, hey?
Of course, this model can be applied to your MOON, all of your Planets, Nodes, and your AC too.
Worth checking out – be surprised how it makes sense!

If you’ve been using Astrology yourself and would like to learn more about this Decanates Model – very cool to have instantly-easily more information about a placement in the Zodiac – pls get in touch. 
YES – GEMINI where the North Node goes into today for the next 1 1/2 years is about learning new things… 🙂
We can set up a 1-on-1 Astro mentoring session with this Focus. 
And I prob. offer an online / in-person workshop in the next while.
Let me know if you’re interested.

What does that mean for the ECLIPSE FULL MOON?

* The MOON is at the very centre (15º33′) of SAG – with a LEO undertone.
So yes, it’s about our own Heart Truth, finding healthy Self Love (also accentuated by the ‘New VENUS’ now, since June 3) and express our Truth from there.

* The SUN is at the very centre (15º33) of GEM  – with an AQ undertone.
Speaking on behalf of Humanity, re-connecting with friends, in groups, and with like-minded people.

 

* And as a SoLunar SAG – GEM / LEO – AQ bridge – one of my all-time fave quotes:
“We’re All Stars in the Constellation of Love!”

 

 

And hey, everything is heightened and in flux, with the very mutable (see chart below) Penumbral Lunar Eclipse!

Rose Moon dancing on the Wire – Photo by moi last night

Soo much Up, and In, and Around us, in this wired and possibly fractured and frazzled world.

Are you feeling like in a weird grid / matrix (the fixed part of it) and want to move again freely?
Time to question and release the downloads and narratives, and find Freedom in the Heart! 

The beauty-FULL MOON dances on, and wayyyy beyond the wires – as MARS & NEPTUNE in PISCES square the solunar Field.

 

What does this Eclipse FULL MOON evoke?

As a Lunar Eclipse (exact alignment of MOON – Earth – SUN) she’s a super charged & super charging & super changing Full Moon:
SO much is coming to Fullness, Fruition, and Harvest that is ripe for release now!
SO much birthing out of the Old Matrix and into the New and Unknown World.

A ‘Release Eclipse’ she is – aligned with the Lunar South Node on the ‘Integrity Point’ where SAG meets CAP.

The Lunar Nodes also shift signs tomorrow June 5(!!!), from CAPRICORN – CANCER where they’ve been since Nov 16 2018 – Because we Care!, and evoked Eclipses in this zodiacal dynamic since then (have they ever!), to SAG – GEMINI where they’ll be until Jan 2022.
Now that’s big news – and deserves its own blog post
(stay tuned).

This much here already:

 

What are the NODES in SAG (SN) – GEMINI (NN) about?

Since they’re so important for this initiatory Eclipse – and for the ones to come until Dec 2021 – , I’d like to expand on them and you might be interested in having a sense of them (I bet you already know the vibes) – to recognize evidence in ‘real life’ (society, inter-personally, personally), to be in synch with the cosmic invitation, and to be part of the evolution.

SO striking that the Nodal Shift comes with a Lunar Eclipse!
And, it’s not just any Nodal Shift but it happens on the sacred Solstice Points!

YES! The South Node is now on the Winter Solstice Point of SAG – CAP (or rather CAP – SAG since the Nodal Axis moves backward in the Zodiac), and the North Node on the Summer Solstice Point of GEM – CANCER (or rather CAN – GEM).

Lunar South Node Glyph

Lunar North Node Glyph

The Lunar Nodes are ‘Karmic Pathways’, whereas ‘exhausted’ / shadow / draining energy on the South Node is ripe to be released, and fresh energy on the North Node’s side comes in to feed the ‘field’. 
In Chinese Astrology, they’re called Dragon’s Mouth (NN) and Dragon’s Tail (SN) – a great symbol.

 

What does that mean for the Nodal shift into CAP to SAG and CAN to GEMINI?

I call the SAG – CAP transition (the Winter Solstice Point) also Integrity Point.
What’s at stake is to walk our talk, and to show up with our best self.

And yes, the Winter Solstice Point is the time of year in the Northern Hemisphere where the SUN is the lowest on the Ecliptic and the daylight is at its minimum – the time of maximum darkness where we need to cultivate Inner Light and trust in the Return of the outer.

With the South Node on the Integrity Point now, enhanced by the Eclipse Full Moon, humanity is called to release what can’t be trusted, what’s not in integrity, because authority & leadership are being abused / unqualified people are in leadership positions, Natural Law isn’t respected / implemented while inhumane regulations are enforced, time and resources (incl. the cruel term ‘human resources’) are wasted and exploited, the organization doesn’t work, judgment, blame, scape goating (CAP) and the alike…

Boom – we’ve seen tons of evidence for that shadow lately.

 

This is what I wrote about the CAP South Node shadow earlier this year, for the last Partial Lunar Eclipse (in CAN – CAP) on Jan 10:

  • A linear, hierarchically separative, controlling ‘governing order’ that disrespects Natural Laws.
  • Artificial scarcity and misplacement of resources.
  • Commodification of everything – it’s all up for sale / use.
  • All types of exploitation and abuse, incl. self abuse via never having / making enough time / running out of time – by setting priorities that aren’t in alignment with what matters most – LIFE.


Now, we’re in for release of shadow / exhausted / draining expressions of Integrity Point (CAP – SAG cusp) turning into SAG:

  • Being done with paradigms / beliefs / programs / agendas that feeds into the implemented consequences / manifestations we’ve seen via CAP (as in: Old Empire, Old Word Order, just as well as ‘New World Order’)
  • Old stories and narratives about the World and ourselves – well, about anything – that don’t hold anymore, and aren’t essentially true
  • Righteousness, preaching, trying to convince others / “Why can’t you see what I see?” – as everyone has the right to their own Truth
  • Fundamentalism and polarization
  • “My way or the highway”
  • A trajectory that goes nowhere / politics going really bad
  • Assumptions, biases (negativity bias / positivity bias / spiritual by-passing)
  • Mildly put, which can help as inquiry start: Am I focusing too much on a certain way of seeing this?
  • On a lighter note: Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy (both SAG expressions)?
  • When knowing turns into certainty that closes us off
  • A battle of arguments – people just shouting at each other, and don’t listen
  • As we know from History, wars have been fought over agendas and beliefs. Heed the seed of it!
  • Less teachers / teaching from the outside-in (and esp old top-down) – find the Inner Teacher / Wisdom
  • Less long distance travel. No need (and less ‘attractive’ to put it mildly) to go faraway. Exploring what’s around us.


I guess like myself, you’ve already seen lots of evidence for this south-nodal phenomenon lately, in the world collectively, in relational dynamics, and – when honest (SAG!) also within your own mind – always good to own it, the first step of transformation.
And perhaps it’s already exhausting just to think about all that.

 

Actually, in terms of timing, as ‘another story’ goes, the Nodes already made their shift into SAG – GEM early May if we go by ‘True Nodes’ that are at times going forward in the Zodiac, and degree wise slightly ‘off’ the ‘regular Nodes’ which I use, mostly since my Astro program displays those, and it doesn’t make a huge difference. But hey, I’m not attached, all valid.

 

In balancing contrast, the North Node is now, and its first Solar Eclipse on June 20 / 21 will be on the Summer Solstice Point (from CANCER to GEM) – the Height of the Light!

Before we get to GEMINI, let’s do a quick review (so good to do that too) of the CANCER North Node phase since Nov 16, 2018.
How was that phase for you?

We’re been called to feed and nurture our compassionate, motherly, caring and protective CANCERian qualities:

  • What, who, which Beings needed your caring presence?
  • Could be yourself (it’s gotta start with YOU!), and could me Mother Earth….
  • Gentle Lunar / Mary / Kuan Yin and Fierce Kali / Durga Mother Goddess (CAN) energies could be invoked to support and supply us with the energy to show our care (CAN) and to do what we’re ‘built for’ at this critical Time (CAP).
  • Finding our Way HOME…

 

Yes, lots of home-ing happened in the last months – as most of humanity (unheard-of!) was forced by governmental control restrictions (SN in CAP) / recommendations – depending on which country (CAN) you live in – to stay at home.
Question is, has it really been an inner home-coming when in quarantine / ‘lock-down’ / our nest / cocoon? I sure hope and wish for you and everyone that you could also experience the Inner Belonging in that space of external restrictions.

 

Now to the North Node from CANCER to GEMINI!

I call the GEM – CAN Summer Solstice cusp also ‘Nesting Point’.
Looks like we’re taking flight now, out of the Nest, as the North Node goes into airy / buzzing GEMINI.

What are ‘Incentives’ for GEMINI in the next 1 1/2 years, as the North Node promises fresh energy via intake of that medicine?
GEMINI brings lightness to the picture – it’s the lightest sign of the Zodiac
(while SAG leaning toward CAP can get weighty if not heavy)

  • Well – starts with Breathing – 1st Air sign of the Zodiac GEMINI rules the lungs, and also the arms – our wings.
  • New thoughts and dialogues
  • New schooling and on-going learning – YES, so many things to learn, daily. And learning keeps us young and flexible.
  • Biodiversity and diversity in all respects
  • Adaptability, flexibility and shape shifting.
    GEM is ruled by MERCURY – which also shifted signs into CANCER last week where it’ll be for 10 weeks(!), incl its retro phase from June 17 – July 12 which is already in the making. 
  • Being smart. Nope, I’m not talking about smart meters or cities here but real smart common sense.
  • Connecting the dots. The world is a puzzle – finding how pieces go / come together helps understand (SAG) what’s going on.
  • Alchemizing dualities and polarities that certainly came up over the last while
  • Language makes a difference – what you say and how you say it.
  • Questions, questions, questions.
  • Asking new questions and good questions (different from questioning everything) is already half way to the answer / solution – that’s what Adyashanti an esteemed spiritual teacher says, and that’s what I also find in Astro sessions, which are always about encouraging deep questions, rather than giving ready-made answers.
  • Doing spiritual inquiry into Truth and Reality

 

The exact / ecliptic SAG – GEM SoLunar polarity from Earth perspective calls for Balance & Integration.

BALANCE of what?

The SAG – GEM axis is about knowing / answers and questioning, about direction / certainty, and diversity / branching out.
How can we create a balanced relationship between these apparently opposing orientations?

  • Starting from GEM:
    Take a good deep breath (GEM), walk / run / cycle (SAG is about legs and movement) in Nature, and feel newly inspired.

    Questioning the Narrative / Old Stories & Beliefs. Speak your Heart Language, and perhaps learn a new language to understand others! 
  • Starting from SAG: 
    Being the grown-up (SAG-GEM), and yet not old and bitter, but open to adapt and learn (GEM).
    Cultivating gratitude and a sense of abundance & generosity, and communicating from there to the world. So much to share!
    Our Heart Freedom & Truth can’t be hijacked.
    Let’s speak (GEM) Our Truth (SAG), from the Heart! 

 

Sabian Symbol for the Eclipse Moon

The Full Moon will be at 15º33′ SAG – coming up to the max Eclipse even closer to 16º SAG – that’s the Symbol we’re looking at.

Photo: Creative Commons

“SAGITTARIUS 16º:
SEA GULLS FLY AROUND A SHIP IN EXPECTATION OF FOOD.
KEY NOTE: The easily acquired dependence of psychic desires upon the stimulation of social circumstances.

Animals are drawn into the circle of what human society produces find it easier to depend on human hand-outs than to pursue their usually difficult search for sustenance. The sea gulls here symbolize the more wild and normally untamable energies in the human soul, but they too can develop a land of domesticated dependence upon the by-products of human adventures within the realm of the unconscious (the sea). Natural instincts feed on the reactions, and often perversions, of the socially conditioned mind-ego.

This is the first stage in the process represented by the fifty-second sequence of five symbols. It shows us how nature can readily become subservient to restless human ambition to dominate the entire biosphere through an all-human planetary socio-economic organization. 
This is a symbol of DEPENDENCE.”

Yep – this symbol is strikingly pretty straight-forward clear for the present situation – pointing to the to-be-transformed / released shadow of what has materialized in the last months since the previous Lunar Eclipse in CANCER – multi-CAP on Jan 10:
Social / societal dependence of the World Population on governmental pronounciations and hand-outs (and co-dependence, since government also depends on the People).

The release Eclipse of the Full MOON at this degree says: The cycle of govern-mental dependency of the People has to / will end.
Hand-outs seem to be a good / social gesture from the ‘top-down’, yet they don’t replace empowered freedom – even stifle it and cement a patriarchal system.
Rather than giving all the power and authority to the relation-ship to the all-mighty government and related institutions / background structures let’s become strong and trust our inner values and potential (see also: New VENUS).
Symbolically-literally: Let’s strengthen our immune systems, and: BREATHE again!

And yes, Nature herself has been subordinated and treated as dependent on human domination.
Time to release this old narrative.

 

The Eclipse, the U.S. and Donald Trump

Yes – the Lunar Eclipse (chart image below) is super relevant for the United States and their current President.

Here are the charts for the U.S. (Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776) and of Donald Trump who was born under a Total Lunar Eclipse(!) in SAG – GEMINI as we have now (even though not Total, ‘just’ penumbral’) – striking!

 

Clearly, the Eclipse MOON of tomorrow is on the SAG AC of the US (which is at 12º12′ SAG) – just 4º away, while the SUN / VENUS in GEM is between the U.S. URANUS and MARS which are wrapping around the country’s DC / 6th – 7th GEMINI House of ‘Dealing with Significant Others’ incl the GEM born President.

The U.S. MARS / URANUS conjunction points to Freedom of Speech, and / or disruptive / revolutionary masculine / assertive / outspoken energies.
Donald Trump himself was born with SUN / URANUS in GEMINI (* June 14, 1946) opposite his totally eclipsed MOON in SAG (also with the South Node, as initiated tomorrow for the next 1 1/2 years – an 18 1/2 year cycle).

Old and ‘exhausted’ SAG energy as in: Being caught in an old narrative and agenda, masked as ‘Truth’ needs to go both for the U.S. as for Trump (his life theme), and make room for new ideas, questions. dialogues…

A lot could be said / interpreted here….
I leave you with the charts and the quick ‘briefing’.

Certainly more to come, as the next Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon will be on July 4 / 5, directly on the U.S. SUN.
Plus, MERCURY now in CANCER for a long time (May 28 – Aug 4)will go retro there, June 17 – July 12, and cover lots of U.S. placements. 
“We The People!” being the key.

 

 

Let’s finally take a look at the SAG – GEMINI Eclipse Full Moon chart!

The Full Moon will be at 12:12 pm PDT (and the exact max Eclipse as mentioned at 12:25 pm PDT).

 

The cosmic Full Moon map shows not ‘just’ a GEM – SAG polarity, but also a mutable T-square from it to PISCES, with multiple heavenly bodies involved:

  • The GEMINI SUN – VENUS Retro – North Node end of GEM / Nesting Point
  • The SAG Eclipse MOON with the South Node end of SAG / Integrity Point
  • In-between, MARS (exactly squaring SUN & MOON (June 5 / 6) not far from NEPTUNE which MARS will pass on June 13 (every 2 years) – so MARS is the apex of the T-square.

 

So much mutability in the chart / energy field these days (‘Flexibel’ scores 24 of 37 in the chart – see top box in the middle under the disk) – suggesting maximum flexibility and adaptability without getting scattered, fragmented, and overwhelmed.
Yes, it’s about balancing Head (GEM) and Heart (SAG), and being light-hearted and open to dialogue and learning.

The ‘New VENUS’ is in the picture too (soon – from June 12 on – rising as the ‘Morning Star’ again). Now, we’re clearer again where we’ve given energy away to orienting ourselves too much to others, in old relational ways (projecting of light & shadow, comparing, competing…). Back to Self Love and our own values.
What does Self Love say? is literally the VENUS / SUN in GEMINI energy.

 

Ultimate mutability is PISCES:
MARS in PI – meeting with NEPTUNE on June 13 (which has been building up in June) – let’s relax, adapt, surrender, be unattached, ‘roll with things’ – surf what-IS and let go what’s not conducive…
Let’s inquire (GEM) spiritually (PI)
, as in: “Is this true? What shows up here? What is bigger and deeper and freer than this…?”
Let’s tune into the Heart Path (SAG) / where our YES is, and allow the Universe and all Beings to send us messages (GEM), bless us and fulfill our Heart & Soul Wishes.
Even if we don’t think we like strawberries & roses…

 
URANUS is the only Planet in a fixed sign
apart from SATURN in AQ – on its way back to CAP though, and out of the square with URANUS where Freedom feels extra restricted and ‘held down’.
URANUS in TAURUS (until 2026!) – is hardly fixed, since it actually breaks up habits and attachments, and old Taurean status quo’s – Freedom from the Known!

This ‘Singleton’ Planet URANUS can be quite an important catalyst: Being radically awake and present in our Earth Body and its senses here-now is an important clue to freedom.
What does your body spontaneously call you to shift? 
I just changed the place and body position from which I’m writing (now legs up, fresh air), and voila, feeling more awake and inspired.

Feeling ready to compose the Astro~News for the whole phase from the Eclipse Full Moon in SAG – GEM to the Summer Solstice CANCER New Moon on June 20 / 21 – an Annular (‘Corona’!) Solar ‘Seed’ Eclipse.

Many Blessings for the ecliptic Strawberry & Roses Full Moon and beyond!

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.
Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution. Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’ and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life. 

I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life. I welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

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

Eclipse Full MOON in CAP – CAN, with VEGA & SIRIUS (July 16 / 17): Transforming the Old – Being ONE Love!

15 Jul

Dear Star Being,

Feeling her in you?

What a Lunar Infusion coming up and already extending her effects for a while – over Spring and early Summer:

The Full MOON in CAP – CANCER tomorrow (2:38 pm PDT) will be a Partial Lunar Eclipse (not visible in the Americas but in effect everywhere on Planet Earth) AND also close to SATURN, PLUTO, and: VEGA the Harp Star – associated with Orpheus!

Here’s some beautiful mythology about VEGA.

It’s a Release Eclipse though…
Sounds like old Love Stories of loss, separation, and fear / control are ripe now to go through the ‘Underworld’ of PLUTO, to be transformed into shining our pure SoUlar Light from within.
We are the ONE Love! 

 

What does the Eclipse FULL MOON evoke?

BALANCE is a key theme, since it’s an opposition.
The Full Moon is the ‘Mother of Oppositions’, calling for balance & integration.
And this one comes with SO many other Planetary Archetypes, Nodes and the Stars VEGA & SIRIUS, all on the CANCER – CAPRICORN opposition axis.

The height of the Eclipse (which you can watch via the Time & Date telescopes if you can’t see the Red Moon directly) will be at 2:30 pm PDT tomorrow July 16.
The FULL MOON will be exact just 8 min later, at 2:38 pm PDT.

Take a look at the Star Map aka chart of the Eclipse:

 


The CANCER – CAPRICORN axis is very dominant in the Astro ‘Field’ – and lots of heavenly bodies are all wrapping around the Nodal Axis in CAP (Lunar South Node) – CAN (Lunar North Node). 

 

  • The Lunar North Node is with VENUS (their yearly union is on July 17), and the SUN in CANCER, close to SIRIUS – plus even MERCURY retro will sneak back into CANCER, on July 19.

 

  • And the Lunar South Node in CAP connects this Spring / Summer with SATURN retro which is this year close to VEGA , and with PLUTO retro close-by (SATURN / PLUTO have been stationary and travelling near each other all Spring. In the Summer their ‘lock’ is loosening. Their exact union will be Jan 12, 2020 – only every about 38-years! Now that already looks quite heavy, rocky, unmoving. Buuuut…
    SATURN – PLUTO constitute together a cycle of societal structural breakdown, purging of the shadow, and rebuilding from the core / basics. Their last unions were in 1947 in LEO and 1982 in late LIBRA.
    The present one 2019 / 2020 in late CAP also approaches PLUTO in the U.S. Independence chart. The U.S. will have their first PLUTO Return(!!!) since 1776 in the years 2020 – 2023. Full circle from establishing a new nation while breaking away from the British Empire (Britain is ruled by CAP, can’t you tell?)… The American Empire is revealing its shadows – to transform. We, the People….?
    The FULL MOON – partially eclipsed by the Earth Shadow – will be next to PLUTO retro in late CAP. The MOON / PLUTO union will be tomorrow July 16 at 10:16 am PDT, only about 4 hrs before the Eclipse / Full MOON at 2:30 / 2:38 pm PDT!

 

As Eclipses always do, this Partial Lunar Eclipse Full Moon accentuates the Karmic Nodes.
Which are since Nov 2018 until June 2020 in CAP (South Node, releasing of its Shadow) – Let the Old Empire Expire – esp. since the
 Partial Solar Release Eclipse in CAP on Jan 5 – CANCER (North Node – embracing its Light) – Finding Home, and, with the Total Solar ‘Seed’ Eclipse in CAN next to Sirius on July 2: Initiation into Liberation.

The Nodes in the CAP – CAN: Because we Care…

 

The exact SoLunar polarity from Earth perspective is calling for Balance & Integration.

And, there’s significance to the fact that the Earth is casting a Shadow on the Moon.

BALANCE of what?

The CAP – CAN axis is about safety and security issues.
To tending to feelings and needs (CAN), while getting along with less, and working with resources in a timely manner (CAP).

How can we create a balanced relationship between these apparently opposing orientations?

  • CAN:
    Gentleness, compassion, nurturing our own and others’ needs, family, tribe, finding belonging, going with rhythms and cycles, protecting Nature and our loved and little ones with loving care.
  • CAP:
    Being mature and in integrity, taking on leadership / leading by example, working with priorities, resiliently, respectfully, using time and resources well.

 

The two sides of the equation don’t have to be a dilemma but can synergistically cooperate.

SATURN in CAP asks us to take responsibility for our part in humanity whose greedy power (PLUTO) and control / authority (SATURN) structures have been exploiting and abusing Mother Earth (shadow of CAP) and her human, animal, and plant Beings that need protection and care (CANCER).
To have boundaries, disengage from this shadow wherever we can, and to Be the Change and the Ones (of the more and more) who Care. What matters is consistency and leading by example, rather than judging and blaming. Makes us feel better and more empowered too…

‘Just’ resisting and blaming external authority and power structures (SATURN / PLUTO) is not the way forward. It still feeds their energy field by giving them attention, acknowledges them energetically, and basically responds / reacts in an adolescent manner (SATURN retro).
How about taking responsibility, claiming self-authority (SATURN retro), and ‘outgrowing’ them, by co-building new and better, more compassionate and humane structures that take care of needs more directly and on an equal level, rather than the old fossilized top-down institutionalized world?!

 

 

How can the Full MOON / PLE highlighting the CAP – CANCER axis affect and inspire us personally?

  • Where / in what ways can we receive nurturing, satisfaction, and reward from being creative and resourceful and through working with what’s already available to you (CAP), rather than buying from / into the system that makes it convenient to consume (and promises status a la CAP) – but at what price?! 
    Here’s to ‘grass roots’ gardening, cooking, and to (re-?)learning / applying traditional home / building / repair skills!
    Let’s consume less.
    And have more time to play & create more!
  • Where-else can we respond to what’s sold to us by: “Thank you, I (already) got this.”, and be content with less? A la Refuse – Reuse – Repurpose – Recycle
  • Which wasteful (time, energy, resources) habits can we get out of, and establish higher vibrational ones that are more deeply satisfying?
  • How can we take more time doing what we’re best at?
  • Play and creative fun beat the heavy CAP vibes of ‘no time for that’…
    Maybe ‘even’ shifting the conditioned paradigm (SATURN in CAP) to: Play first, work later.
    Works great for me these days / months since the Nodes are in CAP – CAN.
    Play puts me in an inspired and relaxed work mode, plus I get to see that ‘work’ and clients come to me not because I work so hard but because they love me and love what I offer, and how it affects them. And everything works so much more smoothly – and playfully – with resonance and connection 🙂

 

If your birthday is between July 10 and 20, or your MOON, AC, or Planets are in late CANCER, CAPRICORN yet also late ARIES and LIBRA, here are some questions to inquire, or do a ceremony around: 

  • How can your needs be met, and your life be sustainable, in the context of the structures you are living in? 
  • Do you need to make foundational changes? In the areas of life relating to (esp.) CAP / (yet also) CANCER in your chart (Houses)?
  • Do you need to downsize, to drop excess ‘weight’ (incl the weight of responsibility to manage what you got), to make life simpler, and have all that you need – plus more time?! 
  • Is the structure / system you’ve been in changing?
  • What would be the smartest way of resourcefully adapting (late CAP has a VIRGO undertone) in a way that nurtures you, resonates with you, and puts you at ease (late CANCER has a PISCES undertone)?

 

CANCER – CAPRICORN is the axis of Family / Tribe and Elders / Leaders.

  • How can important themes round home, family, belonging, safety, emotional needs, and on the other hand (is it a dilemma?) building of sustaining structures, responsibly working with time and resources, self-sustainability, and ‘s-aging well’ be reconciled?
  • In a time where nuclear and extended families in the traditional sense seem to lose their cohesiveness (or will there be a renaissance?) – what’s your world of home and family transforming into? Where and what is your family and home, in essence? Where is your tribe?
  • Who are the Elders and leaders you turn to for guidance? Who are your Spirit Elders?
    Your inner Elder might be waiting to connect with you.

 

I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing Light of your own Being ~ Hafiz

The SUN in CANCER, activated by the Total Solar Eclipse ‘light switch’ on July 2 is about Liberation with Love (SIRIUS – VENUS) – to radiate from our self-nurturing Light which IS our Home.

Leading by example (SATURN in CAP) is then natural – with our radiant Beingness we can inspire and ‘give permission’ to others to do / BE that too.

 

Which other Planetary Archetypes are in the Cosmic ‘Field’ / ‘Weather’?

JUPITER retro in its most natural expression of SAG this year makes it easier to access heart-full inspiration, to see how love & gratitude elevate vibrations, and to have trust in the abundant Universe – while SATURN in CAP notoriously gravitates to seriousness & scarcity.
So – find the YES of your Heart Path, with JUPITER in SAG!
Let go of anything sticky you got hooked on, and connect in the ONE – says JUPITER triple-square with NEPTUNE in PISCES this year (was Jan and June, again Sept 21).
Move forward with confidence and lovingly a la MARS in LEO trine JUPITER in SAG (exact July 25).

CHIRON in early ARIES is this month a stationary focus as the Centaur Archetype went retro on July 8 (until Dec 12). Calling us to heal old / early wounds, and find the Inner Medicine of being authentic.
CHIRON gets a boost from MERCURY retro / MARS in early LEO these days – Roar, and show who you are!
Not based on old stories but naturally-so in the NOW.

URANUS in early TAU is just coming out of a square from MERCURY retro / MARS in early LEO (first half of July) – maybe impulsive roaring recently (was it a territorial / ownership thing?) didn’t get you what you / your ego wanted. Back on the board of life’s game to find love, attention and affection from within first…
When MERCURY post-retro in LEO squares URANUS again on Aug 16 we hopefully came through a lot mentally, to get to really expressing from embodied freedom and and natural radiance.

 

Wishing you from my Heart a soulful and regenerative Partial Lunar Eclipse Full Moon!

August 2017 is Big Time ECLIPSE Month – Partial LUNAR (Aug 7) over India, and TOTAL SOLAR (Aug 21) over the U.S.A.

6 Aug

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Blog Reader,


what an intense month of AUGUST – already…
It IS the ‘HOTTEST’, most charged month of 2017, with (brief overview again):  

Two Eclipses (Lunar on Mon Aug 7, Total Solar on the Sphinx Point / Regulus over the U.S. on Aug 21) – that’s what this article is all about;


URANUS turnaround on Aug 2 – Aug therefore ‘Uranian’ – shocks, surprises, wake-up calls;


JUPITER in LI square PLUTO in CAP on Aug 4 – Deep Imbalances and need for Sustainable Change;

MERCURY into ‘storm’ since Aug 2, retro Aug 12 – Sept 5.

With all these ‘imbalances’ to call it mildly, the ultimate ‘medicine’ is to be in the Centre, the ‘Hub of the Wheel’, the ‘Stillpoint’ where ‘nothing moves as everything is in motion, coming and going’. That would be the ‘shortcut’.

In the meantime, in the human journey we are experiencing all these dynamics.

Let’s see how they play out, and what’s ‘UP’.

Awareness leads to Freedom!

And LOVE is the Medicine that helps us in the ‘storm’ – is both grounding, and raises the vibration from which we experience the ‘events’! 

 

 

ECLIPSE Season is ON, this month of AUGUST:

  • AUG 7: ‘Gates of Power’ / SIRIUS Rising Partial LUNAR Eclipse in mid-AQ – mid-LEO – Eclipse Portrait below!
  • AUG 21: TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on the ‘SPHINX POINT, close to REGULUS, the ‘HEART of the LION’.


The TSE path goes over the United States (NW to SE) – only (except for the Northeast of Brazil), and it’s the first TSE that’s centralized over the U.S. since the country was founded,
even though there have been Eclipses visible from the U.S., see list here.
Plus, it is exactly on Trump’s AC / MARS in late LEO.
Clearly significant for the United States and its present president.


Please find the charts of the PARTIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE and of the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE in the body of this article, and the charts of Trump and,of the U.S. as a reference on the bottom .

 

Quick ECLIPSES INTRO

2017 Eclipses

Twice a year, a pair of Eclipses occurs, and they ‘string together’, through the Lunar Nodes.
Remember the last Eclipse pair in FEB?

  • FEB 10: Lunar Eclipse in late LEO – AQ. The Eclipse MOON, with the Lunar North Node, was close to ‘REGULUS’ the Heart of the LION where the Total SOLAR ECLIPSE on AUG 21 will be.
  • FEB 26: ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse (a ‘Closure’ Eclipse – PI SUN / MOON with the Lunar South Node).
  • And now the two AUGUST Eclipses, in LEO – AQ where the Lunar Nodes are since end of April.

 

Eclipses 101

  • Eclipses occur when a NEW MOON and FULL MOON are close to the Nodal Axis which is presently in AQ – LEO. The closer the more likely a Total Eclipse.
  • Eclipses come twice a year, and in pairs. When there’s a NEW MOON Solar Eclipse close to the Nodal Axis, say, in late LEO (AUG 21), the FULL MOON before (AUG 7) or after is an Eclipse too.
  • Eclipses are at the same position in the Zodiac every 18-19 years:
    On AUG 11, 1999 was a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE in mid LEO. Its path went over Europe (I saw it, before coming to Canada in 2000 – had quite an effect!).
    For the AUG 21 TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE in late LEO you might want to review where you were at in 1999, esp. if you have your SUN, MOON, Planets, or even Nodes in LEO – AQ.
  • The effect of the Eclipses extends beyond ‘just’ a lunar monthly phase, rather 2 – 3 months, and it’s a chain from Eclipse ‘season’ (last one in Feb) to Eclipse season.
  • Eclipses are a RE-set, like rebooting your computer, after a temporary turning off of the energy.
    In other words, a RE-generation of YIN-Feminine (LUNAR ECLIPSE), and of the YANG-Masculine (SOLAR ECLIPSE) energies, after a ‘darkening’.

 

AUG 7 PARTIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE in mid-AQ / mid-LEO (Gates of Power)

Close to INDIA’s 70th Anniversary of Independence on AUG 15, and centrally visible over the Indian Ocean.
Inner Power, Freedom, and Self-Radiance

Lunar Eclipse Partial

Partial Lunar Eclipse

Since it’s an ECLIPSE of the MOON, by the Earth Shadow  which causes the temporary lunar darkening, literally Mother Earth provokes and evokes a ‘RE-SET’ of themes like:
WE The People, The Climate & The Planet
.
Humman Community and collective Interconnectivity (AQ).

I.o.w.: We’re all in this together!
A movement is obviously already kindled, and happening globally, and even more so in  the U.S., since the new presidency.
Goes to show, often it has to get worse to get better or bring out our best…. human nature…

In our personal lives, the Eclipse calls us to be in touch with our loving and creative Heart, and in passionate creative (SUN / MARS in LEO) collaboration with others in community, and in solidarity with Humanity (MOON in AQ). 


The LUNAR ECLIPSE in mid-AQ / mid-LEO is super relevant for all of us with SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in mid-LEO, mid-AQ, but also in mid-TAU, and mid-SCO.
Your personal birth chart and which houses the Eclipse axis falls into for you reveals the particular themes and areas of life this plays out for you.


For all of us, loving Heart creations and showing ourselves more fully and fiercely are LEO SUN / MARS / North Node incentives in the Eclipse dynamic, vs. just ‘watching the show’ (lots of ‘shows’ going on out there in the media, it can easily get draining and overwhelming) or dissociating (AQ South Node shadow).

Lunar South Node Glyph

That doesn’t mean not to be informed politically, but too much of a ‘good thing’ in a passive, numbing way doesn’t help, yet the tendency can be strong these days, as the MOON (our default moods and needs) connects with the South Node.

 

The Nodal axis invites us to balance both ‘poles’ in a healthy way, starting with ‘breathing in’ beneficial energies on the SUN / MARS in LEO side:

Lunar North Node Glyph

Loving and showing ourselves as we ARE.
From there connecting with others, friends, groups, humanity, or even an ‘anonymous crowd’ with a good energy.
If we ‘pick up’ ‘random vibes’ from the collective that are draining clearing and release is definitely cool and needed. Being in Nature, and being creative and playful helps.

Let’s loosen the connection with the technological umbilical chord (SN / MOON in AQ), and be naturally creative and playful FIRST.

 

 

India Flag Spinning Wheel

The Partial Lunar Eclipse in AQ – LEO will be most visible over Central Asia, especially India (and the Indian Ocean).
India will celebrate its 70th Anniversary of the Birth of the modern Indian Nation, and independence of Britain (midnight on Aug 15, 1947) just a week after the Eclipse!
Here’s an interesting little blog post about Gandhi and the spinning wheel.

The MOON in AQ (“Freedom to the People!”) will be temporarily eclipsed by the Earth shadow, before re-emerging, bright and clear.
So, what on Earth, and which part of Humanity is overshadowing the Spirit of Freedom and Independence?
I can think of a few people and things…. and the Earth is speaking too.
What brings the Spirit back, what’s called for Balance?
LEO celebration – but not just of the privileged elite on a power trip (LEO).


Everybody’s a Star, and by nature FREE, and Self-radiant as the LEO SUN.

Buddha Blessings

Bright Buddha Blessings

 

I’m immensely grateful for the spiritual teachings – and the many teachers originating / with their lineage from India – foremost Siddhartha Gautama the Buddha – who point us to the truth of the matter.

Let’s invite the AQ – LEO Spirit of inner Freedom and Self-Radiance, in our path through the LUNAR ECLIPSE, and in preparation for the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE!


Here’s to Nature-ALL Inner Buddha Power, and Inner Buddha Nature!

 

The LUNAR ECLIPSE FULL MOON will be in Central AQ – LEO (15°25′) – LAMMAS FULL MOON / SIRIUS RISING FULL MOON – All in One!

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lughnassadh / LAMMAS, Mabon, Samhain.

The Four Center-Points of the fixed signs in the Zodiac wheel represent the center of each season (like now, mid-LEO / LAMMAS = mid-Summer), see Celtic Wheel to the right.
They are called the ‘Gates of Power’ where energy concentrates, and power themes come up.

The mid-Summer Lammas energy is double-LEO – very fiery – see the ASTRO~NEWS blog post about it!
Fiery MARS is this year super close to the Lammas SUN too
(see Lunar Eclipse chart below).

And it’s the time of SIRIUS (the ‘Scorcher’) Rising at dawn before the SUN, this year on 08 / 08!
See my blog article SIRIUS Rising – RE-birth of the Spiritual SUN.

Clearly, the Fire Element asserts its Power – to be used wisely.
You probably heard of, or are even personally affected by the smoke from the devastating BC wildfires that have been burning and spreading since the last Full Moon on July 8 when MARS and the SUN in CANCER were aligned with SIRIUS (check out the ‘Powerhouse Full Moon’ / Guru Purnima Full Moon chart and article)
Interesting SIRIUS Full Moon 07 / 08  –  08 / 07 Full Moon @ SIRIUS Rising Connection… 

Central AQ where the FULL MOON will be is double-AQ – a call for Humanity to not just ‘stand by and watch’.
AQ is an AIR sign, and a collective sign – i.o.w. “we’re ALL in THIS together”, as we’ve experienced here on the Westcoast with the wildfire smoke this week, building up to the AQ – LEO FULL MOON / PARTIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE on Monday. So, yeah, AIR quality has been clearly ECLIPSED, and water-bearing clouds would be much needed.

Showing us as another wake-up call, how important and often taken for granted fresh AIR is (esp. when you live by the coast), and how much so many Beings – Humanity and all Sentient Beings on Planet Earth – are exposed to poor AIR quality nowadays, due to… well, mostly technological ‘progress’ that isn’t really innovative re: use of clean energy (all these are AQ themes).

In my opinion, the weather, the climate, and the fires aren’t just ‘random’, a ‘given’.
PLUTO in CAP, today Sat AUG 5 crossed by the MOON, has us look deeper, and take responsibility, incl. for the change we wish to see.

We’re ALL in THIS together, in the cycle of LIFE, says AQUARIUS.
What we do to a ‘small’ part (MERCURY about to go retro in VIRGO) we do to ALL (MERCURY opp. NEPTUNE in PISCES)… and we do to ourselves (LEO).

URANUS, Awakener Archetype and ruler of AQ, just went retro on Aug 2 – pointing us to previous shake-ups and wake-up calls (in different ways), and even more so, Inner Awakening.

Sometimes, an ecliptic, temporarily apocalyptic event triggers a change.
Let’s hope it’s a wake-up call that leads to a change in human behaviour, and support for more innovation that leads to sustainability.

Re: AIR quality (AQ) and Heat (LEO) – my prediction is they only lessen post the AQ – LEO FULL MOON / Partial Lunar Eclipse – often after the FULL MOON there’s weather changes…
Maybe it takes until Tue (08 / 08) when the MOON goes into PISCES until the smoke wave goes towards the ocean… not to say the issue is gone…

And yes, mid-LEO / mid-AQ energy is quite intense… may we use these ‘Gates of Power’ for a good purpose!

 

Here’s the AQ – LEO FULL MOON (exact at 11:11 am PDT) / Partial Lunar Eclipse chart for Victoria BC:

Showing the central-LEO MARS / SUN and the North Node in late LEO, with MERCURY about to go retro, in early / mid VIRGO.
The MOON in mid-AQ and South Node in late AQ on the opposite side.

URANUS, ruler of AQ, now in late ARIES, just went retro on AUG 2.
JUPITER just squared PLUTO too (on AUG 4), see blog post for both cosmic events (Wake-up calls, and Soulful Choices).

 

AQ - LEO FM 2017 PLE

 

 

AUG 21 2017 TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE end of LEO, over the U.S.A. on the ‘SPHINX POINT’, and close to REGULUS, the ‘Heart of the LION’.

Total Solar Eclipse with ‘Diamond Ring’ effect

The path of the TSE will cross centrally over the U.S.A. (Northwest / OR to Southeast / SC) and touch into Brazil.

The TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE Effects are clearly related to the United States, and to everything that emanates from the U.S. who themselves declared / ‘owned’ it as the Great American Eclipse – so American… “make Eclipse great again???!”

 

Definitely a spectacle to view (Eclipse show a la LEO?) – yet: What are the deeper and longer term implications of this ‘cosmic event’?
Astrology (literally: language  of the stars) helps us reveal the themes:

 

LEO Constellation, with Regulus, the Heart of the Lion,

The TSE will be at the end of LEO, the ‘SPHINX POINT’, in transition to VIRGO, and close to the fixed star REGULUS ‘Heart of the Lion’, and brightest star in LEO!

This is where the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse / LEO – AQ FULL MOON of Feb 10 was (just 3 weeks after Trump’s inauguration).

Did you know? Trump was born on June 14, 1946 –  the DAY of a TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE (just 3 1/2 hrs before totality!) I’ll show his chart below.

According to EarthSky,A series of monthly lunar occultations of REGULUS (i.o.w. a series of  Eclipses of REGULUS by the MOON) started on DEC 18, 2016, and will continue to take place until the series’ conclusion on APR 24, 2018.”
Interesting… DEC 19, 2016 was the day when the U.S. Electoral College voted for Trump, in the ‘winner takes it all’ plurality per state fashion that received a lot of controversial attention, given the shocking result (ha, URANUS was end of DEC also turning direction) – plus, MERCURY went retro in mid-CAP next to PLUTO the same day, DEC 19!
Note: MERCURY will be retro during the TSE (MERCURY retro starts on AUG 12 and goes until SEPT 5, 2017).

Here is the whole line-up of REGULUS Occultations by the MOON – monthly, from the EarthSky page:

1. DEC 18, 2016
2. JAN 15, 2017
3. FEB 11, 2017
4. MARCH 10, 2017
5. APR 12, 2017
6. MAY 4, 2017
7. MAY 31, 2017
8. JUNE 28, 2017
9. JULY 25, 2017
10. AUG 21, 2017
11. SEPT 18, 2017
12. OCT 15, 2017
13. NOV 11, 2017
14. DEC 8, 2017
15. JAN 5, 2018
16. FEB 1, 2018
17. MARCH 1, 2018
18. MARCH 28, 2018
19. APR 24, 2018

Exactly midway through the occultation series – on AUG 21, 2017 – the MOON occults = eclipses REGULUS on the same date that it totally eclipses the SUN on REGULUS.

This is very significant for the U.S. and their current president whose MARS / AC is at the end of LEO / REGULUS!
See Trump’s chart below.

Io.w. the Martian / REGULUS LEO Rulership appearance / persona of Trump gets overshadowed / eclipsed by the late LEO MOON once a MONTH (ha, like a menstrual cycle), when the MOON in late LEO passes in front of REGULUS. 

This cycle started just the day before he was sanctioned by the EC., then 5 days before his inauguration, then monthly when the MOON was late LEO until APR 24, 2018, culminating half-way with the TSE on AUG 21 – what a symmetry!
One could research and follow the dates and respective Trump effects (well, there are soo many!).
I’d say, at least at the first two occultations true ‘kingly’ ‘lionhearted’ Rulership got overshadowed / showed up in shadowy ways.
Let’s see what the TSE occultation brings.

The Fixed Star REGULUS at 29°53′ LEO has the following traditional connotations:
The most Royal Star. Raphael, the Healing Archangel, the Watcher of the North. Nobility, ambition, alertness, great power, status, leadership, sudden downfall, accidents, violence. Said by some to be the most benefic star in the universe.
Here’s an extensive description of REGULUS –  the drawing of the LEO constellation above is also from that page.

REGULUS, astrologically positioned at the very end of LEO, in transition to VIR where the theme is: The King / Queen is the first servant of the state (Frederick the Great coined this term) –
Rather than ‘staying stuck in LEO mode’ a la “L’Etat c’est moi!” – quote by the ‘Sun King’ Roi Soleil Louis XIV.
The current U.S. president is under scrutiny in this regard.

The LEO / VIR transition, as addressed many times on this ‘channel’, is also known as the ‘SPHINX POINT’, or Self Awareness Point in the Zodiac.

Here, the vibrant, self radiant, self enamored LEO energy reflects upon itself, and becomes aware of who s/he is, and what s/he can do for others.

The ‘SPHINX POINT’ is an Initiation from ‘being chosen’,  ‘special’,  ‘privileged’, ‘being King / Queen’ to becoming a Priest/ess, who offers sacred service. A transition from the ‘palace’ to the ‘temple’.

If you have Planets, SUN, MOON, Nodes on the ‘SPHINX POINT’ their Archetypes guide you through this Initiation to being of service in your life.

It starts with self reflection and self awareness “Who am I?”, from which follows the notion to extend ourselves to others:
“How can I do what I love and what inspires me creatively?” “What can I do for others?” , “What are my strengths, what am I naturally good at that would help others?”, “How can I put my love into service?”.

The TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE is a ‘RE-SET’ of the theme on the ‘SPHINX POINT’ and REGULUS, i.o.w., we are all, president, Queen, King, or not, called to bring our LOVE, our LION HEART, and our Strengths into Service.
What is it that calls YOU?

 

Here is the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE chart for Victoria BC: 

The NEW MOON will be at 11:30 am, the maximum Eclipse at 11:21 am PDT, as noted on the chart.
We’ll be able here in Victoria to see 90% of the SUN disk occulted by the MOON, and the total Eclipse time takes 2 1/2 hrs, from 9:08 am to 11:37 am PDT.

 

 

Check this out:

MARS / Lunar North Node / SUN / MOON all end of LEO, and MERCURY Retro nearby (will meet the SUN on Aug 26), all round the ‘Sphinx Point’ / REGULUS.
A FIRE Trine to URANUS retro / stationary, at the very end of ARIES:
Can all this Ecliptic ‘reboot’ energy be channeled into major paradigm shifts, innovation, and inner liberation?!

Another FIRE Trine to LILITH / SATURN retro / stationary, grounding out the journey, and showing us our True Nature (LILITH) when it looks like “rien ne va plus” (SATURN in SAG).
 
FIRE is the predominant element (SUN, MOON, MARS, North Node, SATURN, LILITH, and URANUS, all in the 3 FIRE signs): So much stirred up – can it be expressed in passionate, creative ways? Things can really get rolling if we put intention and motivation behind them.

6 retrograde Planets (SATURN about to go direct, on Aug 25) – we’re also dealing with ‘unfinished business’ and recurring themes – many ‘inside jobs’.
Practically speaking, a better time to start a project when MERCURY and SATURN are out of retro & post-retro ‘storm’ – with the next Very VIRGO NEW MOON on SEPT 20.

 

Here is Trump’s chart.

He was born just 3 1/2 hrs before a Total Lunar Eclipse!

 


The TSE is right on his MARS / AC which is conj. REGULUS.

He also just had his 6th JUPITER return in LIBRA, and SATURN / LILITH are on his MOON / South Node in SAG / opp. his SUN / URANUS / North Node in GEMINI – ‘rien ne va plus’, re: shooting / tweeting from the hip? Roadblocks for his attitudes and wild and crazy unpredictability?

We shall see what this culmination of occultations brings to / through him (he surely is a catalyst to bring out the shadow of the establishment and system).

 

The U.S. chart (signature of the Declaration of Independence) looks like this:

 

Have you noticed?
The U.S. MOON
end of AQ is right opposite the SOLAR ECLIPSE Point: “We The People….”

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!

 

 

 

* Ecliptic, Cuspy AQUARIUS – LEO FULL MOON (Aug 18) * Let’s Co-create from the Heart, in Friendship and Freedom!

18 Aug
Golden Light Wave

YES, indeed:

Tonight’s FULL MOON is even a ‘wide’ LUNAR ECLIPSE that ‘grazes’ the penumbral shadow https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_2016_lunar_eclipse.

The MOON will be about 18° away from the Lunar South Node (at 13°24 PI) – the closer SUN & MOON at a New Moon or Full Moon are to the Nodes the more exactly one of these heavenly bodies will be eclipsed.

The NEXT FULL MOON on Sept 16 (closer to the Nodes) will be a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse.

 

But, hey, energetically it’s been a super charged, ‘electric’ build-up time for this FULL MOON too, due to the URANUS connection with the SUN this week, and the AQ FULL MOON will sextile URANUS too (see chart).

 

All about Liberation:
Freedom FROM… (low grade expressions of the energies involved) – perhaps:

  • LEO Drama & Dominance
  • AQ Isolation and Alienation

And Freedom FOR – perhaps:

  • Authentic Self Expression. Shining Our Light (LEO)
  • Living Life Lovingly and Creatively (LEO)
  • Connecting with Like-Spirited and Like-Hearted Friends and Community (AQ)
  • Co-Creating in Freedom, and with Synergistic Innovation (AQ)

 

Reminds me of the wise teacher J. Krishnamurti who was born with AQ Asc.

Wow, looking up his birth chart at http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Krishnamurti,_Jiddu, it’s late AQ where tonight’s FULL MOON will be!

We could use a bit of his ‘Freedom from the Known’ teaching – on so many levels.

 

Where late AQ is in your chart, that’s the area of life where LIBERATION and Co-Creation is ‘full & ripe’ now:
1st House: How you show up – BE Liberated!

2nd House: What you have and value – Own Your Freedom!

3rd House: Your environment – Co-Create in the City, and with ‘Relatives’ in Humanity!

4th House: Your home – A Place for Friends!

5th House: Your creativity – You’re a Free-spirited Innovator!

6th House: Your work and health – Cooperation is the Future!

7th House: Your significant others – Liberated Partnerships, and: Is Your Partner Your Friend?!

8th House: Your deep involvement and transformations – perhaps from Loneliness and Distance to Sharing in Humanity?

9th House: Your travels and worldviews – Meet Like-Spirited Friends in the World – maybe as you Travel or Study?!

10th House: Your calling and purpose – is FREEDOM.

11th House: Your community – True Friends and Co-Creators.

12th House: Your oneness with ALL – always FREE…

 

 

And AQ – LEO reminds me also of the all time favourite quote: “We are All Stars in the Constellation of Love!”

 

The FULL MOON, technically in AQ – LEO, is actually on two sign cusps:

 

The SUN is at the end of LEO, coming closer to the cusp to VIR (and will enter VIR on Aug 22 at 9:38 am PDT), the ‘Sphinx Point’ of Self (LEO) Awareness (VIR).

 

Sphinx

Sphinx on the Giza Plateau – Photo by Melanie, Egypt Journey with my AQ Friend Marina, Nov 2010…

 

Lots of VIR energies are on presently, with

  • VENUS / North Node (was exact yesterday Aug 17), and

MERCURY / JUPITER. The winged one, MERCURY, will travel very close to its ‘Mentor’ / the BIG one, JUPITER, esp. Aug 22 – Sept 16, basically during the whole VIR time, due to MERCURY retro very close to JUPITER end of VIR. See below also: Feature on MERCURY’s VIRGO JOURNEY

  • More about the SUPER VIRGO energy – Honouring the Sacred Feminine, Being in Alignment with our Work and Service, Health and Wellness… – for the VIR SOLAR ECLIPSE (a ‘Seed Eclipse’) on Sept 1.

 

What does this mean for now, the Cuspy FULL MOON presently?

  • Time to HARVEST the gifts of Self Awareness.
  • Gratitude for being able to consciously Live from Love, and Serve Others with what we Love, and be in the Love while we do the Work.
  • Everything goes better (VIR) with a Loving Heart (LEO) – and some dance too 🙂

 

The MOON is at the end of AQ, as I propose to call it, the ‘Coherence Point’ (“We’re all in this together”) – one might also call it ‘www Point’ :-).

Luna will glide over into PISCES even already tomorrow (Aug 18) morning, 7 ½ hrs after the Full Moon, at 9:34 am PDT, to meet in the oceanic realm its very own ruler of the cosmic seas, NEPTUNE, the South Node, and CHIRON, on Fri Aug 19 / Sat Aug 20.

So yeah, Connection (PI) as friends, in circles, groups, as humanity (AQ) is definitely ‘highlighted’ at this point.

Real human connection, I’d suggest… electronic, virtual connection is good too but can’t replace sharing in physicality (You can’t smell or hug or massage or share food with someone online… well, that all sounds like TAU all of a sudden :-)).

 

Since the PI energies are all wrapping around the Lunar South Node (which is very close to NEPTUNE, for the rest of 2016!), it’s also time to release overwhelm and addiction (PI), and, in balance with VIR, do spiritual practice (PI – VIR).

More about the VIR – PI themes in the next Astro~News (VIR NEW MOON / Annular Solar Eclipse on Sept 1 to PI-VIR FULL MOON / Penumbral Lunar Eclipse on Sept 16).

 

The Buddha Surfer comes handy, to illustrate the theme of VIR (skills) PI (waves) 🙂 

Buddhasurf_quote

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

 

More fun with some other surfer friends around (AQ – PI), and there we come full circle with the FULL MOON theme

Shine Your Light, Move Freely, and Be in Your True Nature!

Let’s Co-create from the Heart, in Friendship and Freedom!

 

* The FULL MOON ChartA Fuller Picture…

 

Voila – the chart for the exact Full Moon tomorrow Aug 18 at 2:27 am PDT, viewed from Victoria BC.

 AQ - LEO FM 2016

 

At the time, CANCER is even the Rising Sign, so the AQ MOON rules the chart, and is high up in the sky, in the 9th house of the chart – The Path of Freedom leads us HOME…

 

As you see, it’s pretty busy, ‘down’ in the VIR environment!
How about channelling that energy into dealing with practicalities that need to be ‘in place’ now, maybe literally Feng Shui’ing the home, or do ceremony and ritual for sacred alignment? Clearing clutter, and passing on unused items, bringing order into our household and health are smart practical moves in this.

Yet, all that ‘doing’ wants to be balanced with being in resonance with what-is, and letting things fall off as needed if we can’t / don’t need to ‘work on them’ / ‘fix them’.

A fine balance. Literally, fine-tuning (VIR-PI).

Actually, it’s not even a balance of this (VIR) and that (PI) but all interwoven and integral…

How about this:

Working in the Flow

Releasing Worry and OCD (obsessive-compulsive DOING), and turning it into OCD (original creative dance) 🙂

 

On that note of puns:

Looking forward (yes, no typo) to MERCURY retro (coming into ‘stormy’ stationary mode on Aug 22, and technical retro from Aug 30 on – see special feature below)… always a good chance to create new pun pathways, and seeing the thinker (and in this case also VIR doer) with new eyes…

 

And then:

Phewww, MARS has made it out of SCO into SAG – the Phoenix has Risen (technically on Aug 2, with the LEO New Moon! A seed for freedom, new trust, growth, and inspired movement (SAG), i.o.w. a new WHY, a new YES was planted then. Now, under the following FULL MOON, we can see ‘new life’ based on this initiation and seed time. How’s that for you? Esp. in the house of your chart where early SAG is.

As you see, there is still one ‘condition’ / test / ‘wait a minute’ effect: SATURN is still ahead of MARS. This (MARS) too shall pass (SATURN) – next Wed Aug 24.

So let’s use that SATURN energy to acknowledge how far we’ve come, and in fact the path unfolds in front of us as we walk – slow is beautiful… Maybe literally some (SATURN type) criteria have to be in place before we’re moving more swiftly and freely forward, upward, onward (MARS in SAG).

 

The MARS / SATURN team are quite crucial ‘players’ these days, since they are the apex / outlet of a mutable T-Square, from NEPTUNE / South Node in PI and VENUS / North Node in VIR.

Wow, lots of action, busy activity, and flow… good to be flexible with all the mutability, as things change, directions shift, quite like surfing energy waves. Skills, Surrender, Inspired Motion from the Heart would be a simple formula…

 

Our friend URANUS in ARIES, still in turnaround ‘station’ (went retro on July 29) made friends with the LEO SUN this week, and has also shown us that things can shift and open quickly, and what we ’loved’ and tried to hold on to yesterday is already passee today. What remains – best way anyway – is to Live in the NOW!

* LI – AR FULL MOON / Penumbral Lunar Eclipse (March 23) * Fresh RE-Alignment and Synergy *

23 Mar

How has the journey with the massive, oceanic, CHIRONIC Total Solar Eclipse in PISCES been for you???

We’re still in it’s wave, of course, since Eclipse effects extent over 1 – 2 months (depending on intensity and one’s own activation). Plus, there is still a lot of planetary energy in PISCES, gradually moving over to ARIES – Spring in Becoming.
So let’s take it easy with the washing out of old vibrations – maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, and our own or ‘inherited’ loyalty to / conditioning by it.

How have you been ‘entangled’ in (unevolved) PISCEAN paradigms (co-dependency of victim – perpetrator / persecutor – saviour; martyrdom; various addictions)?

The Total Solar Eclipse brought consciousness to it, and it shows us it’s time to release those bonds in ‘the old kingdom’. Catalysts may have shown up, to support the process, and helping us to release Piscean entanglement, addiction, and other compensations of our yearning for Oneness, and re-open from the Heart of compassion.

The SPRING EQUINOX 2016 (exact last weekend) – also representative of the balance of Solar / Day and Lunar / Night realms – has bridged the Eclipses. A potent time of New Beginnings.

Now, the focus is on the MOON – with an invitation to find synergies and new ‘right relatedness’ that is more in alignment with evolution, and work better for us.

Yes, Eclipses come in pairs, and we’ve been building up to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse over the last weeks.

The LI – AR EQUINOX FULL MOON Penumbral Lunar Eclipse, exact today March 23 at 4:47 am PDT will be visible (Moon will be faint) over the Americas, Pacific, and Asia, see http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2016-march-23.

In the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse, the EARTH, almost exactly positioned between SUN and MOON, casts a partial shadow on the MOON.  

Sooo, wanna take a chance on an early morning date with the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse?
Theoretically, we could see ‘her’ darkened by the Earth shadow this morning – but very subtle.

“The penumbral Eclipse will last for 4 hours and 15 minutes Wednesday, but it may be noticeable for only a few minutes around 7:47 a.m. EDT (1147 GMT), the time of greatest Eclipse”.

More info here: http://www.space.com/32329-penumbral-lunar-eclipse-expectations-march-2016.html

 

Lunar Eclipse Penumbral

Energetically, we’ve been in the LUNAR ECLIPSE wave since  Monday evening, when the MOON and JUPITER and the North Node of the MOON all united in VIRGO, where fresh re-alignment energy comes in, to be embraced and integrated.

Did you get a chance to SEE MOON and JUPITER (above the MOON in the Ecliptic)? I stepped out round midnight, and there they were, magically ‘hanging out’ together, and blessing our earthly journey. Our Body is a Temple. The Earth is Sacred.

Spring Reflections – Photo by Melanie, March 2016

 

The MOON entered LIBRA this evening (10:23 pm PDT) (tonight / tomorrow morning if you are further east), for the FULL MOON (opposition to the ARIES SUN) at 5:01 am PDT, 14 min. after the exact Eclipse.

The whole field from late VIR / early LI, and mid / late PI / early AR gets ‘highlighted’, or rather temporarily dimmed and re-set by the Eclipse and FULL MOON.

Of course, this LUNAR Eclipse is also linked to the Total Lunar Eclipse we experienced 6 months ago, on Sept 27, 2015. Then fully in LI – AR.

Has something round Autonomy (AR) – Partnership / Negotiation / Balance (LI) come up for you again, for integration?

You can get the Astro picture of the FULL MOON / Eclipse in the chart below. Interesting dynamic for sure. Lots of ‘moving parts’.

So here we are, maybe nervous, anxious and problem ridden (lower VIRGO MOON vibrations), or having found the ‘sweet spot’ of ‘perfect balance’ (VIR – LIBRA) which I’d suggest comes from inner wholeness and ‘vertical’ alignment with higher self (VIR), from which peace results.

 

Let’s look at the ‘evi-dance’, i.o.w. the chart of the FULL MOON this morning, at 5:01 am PDT, just after the Penumbral LUNAR ECLIPSE at 4:47 am PDT: What’s UP?

 

LI - AR FM 2016 Lunar Ecl 

A double cuspy-polarity, with

  • NEPTUNE / VENUS, Lunar South Node / CHIRON in PI, and the SUN / MERCURY in early AR (whoa, that’s 5 heavenly bodies and the Node!), and even URANUS not far.
  • JUPITER / Lunar North Node in VIR, and the MOON in early LI on the other side of Planet EARTH.

 

In the chart, you can see that the VIR – PI polarity, reaching over to the Eclipse axis, forms a T-Square to SATURN in mid SAG, next to MARS.

SATURN, the apex (outlet point) of the Eclipse is a main Archetype player here, also since it is about to go retro, on Fri March 23, hence a ‘stationary’ (moving very slowly, ready for the ‘U-turn) focal point anyway this month.

So it’s a lot about this mutable T-square, also since the Nodes (that are linked to the Eclipses) are in mutable PI (South Node) and VIR (North Node), since Oct 2015 and until May 2017.

The PI side might feel quite overwhelmed and helpless, as everything is coming together in a big ‘chaotic soup’ (showing us: all IS connected). ARIES after PI can be the ‘survivor’ and hero/ine, getting one’s ‘head out of the water’. And yes, many people on this planet are in such survival mode nowadays. Thinking of refugees especially.

In our relatively safe and comfortable environment, we can feel energetically overwhelmed by the ‘confluence of influences’, waves and streams…, esp. via the (also PI ruled) media, but also internally, as so much is being washed up nowadays, to be seen as connected. How can the overwhelm simply, like an outbreath, be dropped and released – in Love?

Fresh Newness, and Radical Now-ness in What-Is can arise from there.

The VIR / LI invitation (Lunar North Node with JUPITER in VIR) is about humility, practicality, and integrity which brings supportive energy to the situation. So if there is something concrete that can be done, to take care of a situation and bring things into flow and connectivity again, go ahead.

To be of service and to ask for help can be the magic keys.

You might have already experienced examples of this dynamic.

 

Where is the Eclipse Axis playing with you (Planets, Houses), and helping you with Re-Alignment and Synergy?

 

Always good to recognize what’s UP and act in accordance to the cosmic flow.

The inner voice knows of course. We just often override it, unfortunately, via ego, conditioning, you name it. As shown by SATURN (stationary) in mid SAG in T-square with the Eclipse axis.

A good challenge to learn:

  • Where is the path? What guides us and makes sense?
  • What prevents us from, and what supports us in aiming, speaking, and acting from the Heart?

 

Give_it_a_Try

 

During the Eclipse Season we are ‘caught’ in a T-square to SATURN, now stationary in SAG, exactly between the VIR and PI placements which are still very prominent.

Plus, this FRI March 25, SATURN will go retro (once a year SATURN goes retro for 4 ½ months), which means, SATURN is already making a slooowww turnaround throughout March, and appears from Earth perspective as a ‘stationary’ focal point of energy.

SATURN in mid SAG makes it painful to hold on to old limiting and judgmental narratives, beliefs, dogma, authorities that pretend to ‘know better’, and to separation from what’s ‘foreign’ and ‘unknown’. The Heart of our true nature knows, and the March Eclipses help catalyze that awareness. Coming from the Heart of awareness re-moves the obstacles, and clears the path. We can see more clearly, and move with Oneness.

Bottom line: Staying ‘on course’ and not getting ‘overshadowed’ by emotional responses, based on old (unmet?) needs can be a challenge, and show us how the ego is ‘survival’ / fight / flight (PI to early AR) conditioned.

How can we convert and ‘upcycle’ this energy into being freshly ALIVE and PRESENT in the Heart and in the NOW, Balanced with What-IS?

This might be a good place to say in general:
My work with clients and groups and in my inner journey, esp. in the grand Evolution / Revolution of humanity over the last years, is showing me more and more how the astrological map and its activation shows potential yet also old conditioning that is coming up now for release, so that we can dwell in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’, rather than ‘going round and round’.

Hence I understand my service as supporting your Transformational and Liberating Journey, by identifying, honouring, and helping to bring your themes to a higher level of experience where you can witness and release them.

We are being RE-aligned, RE-balanced, and RE-birthed.

Welcoming the reNEWed YOU!
