Nodal Shift on Apr 29, over the SPHINX Point, into LEO: Show up in Your Loving Strength!

23 Apr

Now, that’s BIG:
The ‘Karmic Pathways’ a.k.a. Nodal Axis is shifting this month, into LEO / AQ, catalyzed by the TAURUS New Moon (Apr 26)!
For 1 1/2 years, until Nov 16, 2018, we’ll be in the LEO – AQ dynamic, which gives esp. you LEOs out there (by SUN, MOON, AC, and Planets) a natural ‘cosmic boost’.


And it’s a full-circle karmic activation (LEO incentive / AQ release) for all of you who were BORN with the LEO / AQ Nodal Axis:

Nov 1942 – May 1944
June 1961 – Dec 1962
Jan 1980 – Sept 1981
Oct 1998 – Apr 2000

 

Lunar South Node Glyph

Lunar North Node Glyph

In what way?

Quick re-cap, to show the context, where the energy comes from:
Since Oct 2015, we’ve been ‘under the weather’ of a PISCEAN South Node (intensified in the PISCES Eclipse seasons in March 2016, and Feb / March 2017) that could have drained our energy by ‘taking too much in’ and being ‘exposed’ to wayyyy too much, resulting in overwhelm, confusion, literally a weakening of the immune system.
ALL is ONE, says PISCES, the last and ultimate Zodiac energy, where all comes together, in Unity consciousness, and not just compassion but Oneness with / as ALL.
Yet, that doesn’t suggest to let it all into the human energy field, indiscriminately, unconsciously, to overwhelm ourselves, or try to ‘be everything to everybody’. Now that’s not far from martyrdom and victimhood – not really spiritual.

The Lunar South Node in PISCES, linking with CHIRON (esp. via March 8, 2016 Eclipse), and with NEPTUNE (esp. catalyzed through Feb 26, 2017 Eclipse) is also an indicator that we are gradually leaving the PISCES AGE of the last 2300 years – which of course is a process, not an event. One of the ‘signatures’ of the PISCES AGE is the co-dependent triad of Victim – Perpetrator – Saviour (and Martyr, and a blend of Victim and Saviour).
We are outgrowing this old omni-present paradigm now. Let’s check in, in challenging situations: “Am I one of the 3? Do I ‘cast’ the others, to keep the wheel of karma going???” The last 1 1/2 years with the South Node (release, release….) in PISCES brought these old collective patterns up, to let them GO (bless them with Love, acknowledgment, and gratitude for what they’ve taught us – now we’ve outgrown them).

What helps to determine when they still tend to show up – habitually?
Awareness is the first step – so VIRGO (“What’s going on here?” “What’s the issue?”).

VIRGO, the complementary opposite of PISCES offers us

  • A clear head – and analytical gift to sort out the situation. Incentive to be in the integrity of our body-mind-spirit ‘Temple’, and to do healthy practices that bring us back to overall wellness and wholeness.

VIRGO is the Archetype of the Sacred Feminine, the Priestess, offering sacred service, to herself and others.

Which goes of course for women and men – the Temple doesn’t have a gender.
Yet, the notion to honour the Feminine has become big over the last 1 1/2 years.

Would be excellent if everything was ‘in place’ now, if we were clear, critical, and discerning, re: ‘what’s real’/ ‘what works’, rather than be fooled and seduced.

It has become clear by now, at the end of the PI / VIR Nodal Axis activation:

  • How important spiritual practice is.
  • How compassion and loving energy needs to show up in ‘real life’.
  • How taking ourselves out of toxic, unhealthy environments (rather than being the martyr) if they overwhelm us and leave us drained, and not feeding anything into it, nor trying to ‘fix it’ can be the most loving act of kindness.
  • How we can offer our love and heartfelt blessings, unattached to the outcome, to situations we can’t personally change.

When in doubt (or overwhelm): How would the Priestess show up in this?
By the way: Practice IS perfect (just in case VIRGO’s notion for perfection and inadequacy tries to block you from doing anything). Sighhhhh (outbreathhhh)!
That’s one the mantras that emerged for me, during the North Node in VIRGO phase. Which goes for my on-going spiritual practice, my Astrology practice, all the technical ‘tricks’ and tools that showed up to be integrated into business, over the last 1 1/2 years.

And you?

  • What are ‘formulas’ and practices you’ve integrated, and that really help you come into alignment with your cosmic Self? 
  • What’s your healthy lifestyle like, and how does it support a fulfilling work and service?

Once VIRGO North Node is ‘established’, i.o.w. the ‘work is in place’, and a healthy practice is integrated, we learned how to work with tools that are helpful, and bring a sense of order and ‘smooth operation’.

Where in your chart and life does the VIR – PI axis show up?
Examples:

  • VIR in your 1st house of Self – PI in your 7th house of encounters with others:
    Be in your integrity temple, and take care of your own well-being – which gives you energy to be compassionate and available for others, and ‘just present’.
    Much preferable to giving energy away, by trying to help everyone but not yourself.
  • VIR in your 7th house – PI in your 1st house:
    Let go of dwelling in passivity and victim mode. Seek the company of people with whom you can do healthy practice, and service in the world – which clears your energy field too.

Looking at the specifics of your chart would be important to see how it all fits for you.

 

And now – the Shift!

As the North Node moves from VIRGO to LEO it crosses over the ‘Sphinx Point’ of Self Awareness – an Initiation!

A cosmic, karmic influx of energy (North Node) enters when we apply the tools and practices of awareness (VIR) to the Self (LEO). This is where we are in our Strength.

From the place of Self Awareness (in a ‘regular’ sense: Knowing how we operate, what’s healthy and what works for us, and in a deep way: Who ARE YOU? What is the SELF?) we can flow and roll with life (PI), and be available for Community and Humanity.

 

However, if we lean too much over to passively following others, on the ‘path of least resistance’, and let them ‘run the show’ we loose energy, get drained, and loose touch with the Self.

I can see this tendency happening through the omni-presence of social (AQ) media (PI), when we get too drawn into the world of others, and become the spectator. Addictive (lower vibration of PI – out of the notion to be connected), and unsatisfying.

 

Time to… get a LIFE, be self loving, and creative from the inside-out.
Time to let the Self shine, and dance as if no one or everyone (is there a difference?) watches.

Having learned tools and techniques (VIR), and knowing what works for us, what our sacred work is, and how to be in alignment it’s now play time and show time (LEO)!

Be creative, show your colours, be generous, and come from the Heart.
Be seen – and loved for who you are!

LEO’s motto is Live Life Lovingly!

Guess who was born with the AQ – LEO Nodal Axis?

Princess Diana (born July 1, 1961) – who moved many with her genuine humanitarian work (AQ), and needed to step out of her AQ shyness and shine as the ‘Queen of Hearts’. The people – AQ (maybe not so much the Royals) had so much love for her – and love never dies….
Ex-President Barack Obama (born Aug 4, 1961), with LEO MERCURY / SUN / LILITH / URANUS / North Node, and AQ Rising / South Node – definitely a ‘King of Hearts’ with a big charisma, while serving the People (AQ). Maybe not really ‘dethroned’…

 

Speaking of U.S.:
The event this year related to the Nodal Axis in AQ – LEO that stands out most is the Total Solar Eclipse on Aug 21 – with totality over the U.S. – hence declared as ‘Great American Eclipse’ – so American – lots of preparedness and travel info already online for a while.

Since the TSE (and exact New Moon, as the MOON covers the disk of the SUN from Earth perspective) comes with the Lunar North Node it’s a ‘Seed Eclipse’ emphasizing on the beginning of a major new cycle – for the U.S., for Planet Earth, and for all of us, when it comes to Self Awareness, and Service with Love:
Who are we, and what are we doing? How can we do things smarter, and more lovingly? And in a deep way: Who are WE, as Humanity? 
The TSE on Aug 21 is exactly on Trump’s MARS / AC. Can it change his approach of “This is me, and that’s what I’m doing – in macho style” into a higher vibration of LEO / VIR?

How can we outgrow the system (AQ) with LOVE and Strength (LEO)?
How about already invoking your Sphinx Point energies (SUN, if you were born mid – end of Aug, MOON, AC, Planets) for the highest good, in their loving strength?!

 

Serving with Love and Passion, and wishing us all a year of Love in Action!

Super PISCEAN ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar ECLIPSE ~ Cosmic Relief ~ Loving Release ~ Deep Trust-in-Renewal!

24 Feb

The Annular ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse is coming!

On Feb 26 –  the path of the ‘Ring of Fire’ will go path will go over South-West Africa, the Atlantic, and Argentina / Chile.

 

solar-eclipse-annular

 

It will be one of the TWO major ecliptic New Moons of the Year:
Feb 26 and Aug 21
(Total Solar Eclipse over the U.S.A.).

Both are catalyzing karmic pathways, collectively and for us personally, esp. if we have LEO / VIR and AQ / PI energies in our charts.

Have you been feeling the Eclipse effects (usually building up the month before, if not longer), and welcoming the ‘karmic gifts’ it offers?

Tomorrow’s ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar ECLIPSE in early PISCES helps us with releasing, ‘washing out’, and re-balancing in a much bigger way what the LEO / Regulus / VIR – AQ FULL MOON on Feb 10 has been preparing us for:
* Clearing residual ‘chaos’ / overwhelm (South Node / NEPTUNE in PI)
* Re-aligning with integrity (VIR), to radiate our authentic Self (LEO).

 

This is the LAST New Moon of the Zodiac Year which begins with ARIES and ends with PISCES.

And it’s the last Solar Eclipse in PISCES for a while.
Big time Release, to Re-Connect in fresh, new, authentic ways.

 

Remember the Total Solar Eclipse (with CHIRON) in PISCES last year, March 8, 2016?
Or maybe you were ‘out’… (I was, with an extended virus / bacteria infection – a healing crisis to find inner Medicine, during that Solar Eclipse ‘season’ – For me, the theme was releasing overwhelm and unhealthy inter-personal influences, with Love AND clear discernment (VIRGO), so that I could operate and serve better again.

Since Eclipses come back to the same point in the Zodiac every 19 years (there was a PI Solar Eclipse on Feb 26, 1998!) it’s an invitation to reflect upon that cycle:
* What did you let go of, and what did you ‘breathe in’ then? 
* Where has the Ocean of Life taken you since, and what can you release with Love now?

 

Every New Moon closes a lunar month cycle and initiates a new one. A Solar Eclipse is an exact New Moon – a clear threshold and ‘re-set’ of Solar Consciousness, aligned with the ‘karmic pathways’ of the Lunar Nodes:
Lights off / on!

 

The South Node of the Moon has been since Oct 2015 in PISCES (and the North Node in VIRGO). The ‘cosmic outbreath’ / switch-off button is on the PISCES side these days / months / years, and the cosmic ‘inbreath’ / incentive / switch on button comes from the VIRGO side:
When things become chaotic, overwhelming, and exposure to them drains our energy and lowers our vibration (and immune system – ruled by PISCES!) it’s time to cleanse, discern, and to re-claim the inner healthy VIRGO Temple of Wholeness.

Yet, PISCES as the last ‘all-inclusive’ last sign of the Zodiac shows us that indeed all-is-one, the solution is not separation and being overly critical and problem focused (too much VIRGO), but to release what doesn’t serve us or is not healthy and functional, with Love and Blessings, and it can flow away, down the River of Life, or be washed out by the Sea.
The Lunar Nodes are about Balance (rather than old-school dualistic: do this, avoid the opposite).

A Release Ritual on the day before the Eclipse New Moon (= on Saturday Feb 25) would be in perfect PISCES – VIRGO alignment with the energies, and supported by the Universe.
Maybe you’d love to literally bring a gift to a place by the water for a release-with-love?
I got one ‘wrapped-up’ today ❤

The ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse is also SUPER WATERY = PISCEAN (MERCURY, South Node, SUN / MOON, NEPTUNE, and CHIRON all in PISCES!).

And, as always with the Eclipses (twice a year, a pair of Lunar and Solar Eclipse occur), it catalyzes what’s going on in the Astro sphere otherwise. Esp. if they happen in omni-connected PISCES…

 

On that note, here is the Eclipse chart:

 

pi-nm-annular-solar-eclipse-2017

The PISCES ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse helps us wash out PISCEAN endings, and ignite ARIES-like new beginnings:
Most planetary energies ‘wrap’ round the ‘Birthing Point’, between PI and AR!
A great boost for release and renewal!
Maybe we experience Life and see the World in a whole new way?

 

And: No Planets in fixed signs! Nothing to get attached or hold on to. Nothing to resist…
All is fluid and ephemeral. 
Mirrors and masks… reminds me: it’s also the Carnival weekend – naturally synchronized!

MERCURY will enter PISCES tomorrow Feb 25, and sail the universal waters until March 13 – a very fluid mental sphere to tune into – artistic, all connected, intuitive downloads come easy, yet we can get also overwhelmed by being super open to the randomness of influences.
MERCURY in PI will meet NEPTUNE on March 4, the PI SUN on March 6, CHIRON on March 10, and square SATURN in SAG on March 12.
We can surf these energies by connecting our mind in Oneness, letting Spirit and Consciousness ‘rule’, being open for teachings and healing in the Love that IS, and even dropping old conditioned and hard-wired ‘stories’ and beliefs.

And as we tap into the Cosmic Self (NEPTUNE) we can easily release illusion and delusion. It’s all a game of appearances…

Let’s be the attachment-free Buddhas and Surfers, in the Waters of Love! ❤

There’s even a mutable T-Square forming, from the Nodes in PI – VIR to LILITH in early SAG (on the ‘Phoenix Point’ – in the fresh Fire Rooster / Phoenix Year).
Hearing the Call of our intrinsic, always ‘wild and free’ unconditioned nature we simply know when the Heart says YES!
We can’t ‘go wrong’ by following the Heart Path.
Makes it easier to let go with Love of what’s not serving anymore, and embracing the New, with Trust, and Rising like a Phoenix!
LILITH will square MERCURY on Feb 27, and the Nodes on March 10, so the energy is building right after the Eclipse, and into mid-March.

 

galacticcenter

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

SATURN, further ‘ahead’ in late SAG, is now in alignment with the Galactic Centre = 26 – 28° SAG (from end of Feb until end of May, esp. stationary there end of March and throughout April, since it will go retro on Apr 6 in the GC!)).

The Galactic Centre at the end of SAG – close to the ‘Integrity Point’ to CAP is about the ultimate Unknown that points us to the Wisdom and Knowing of the Spiritual Heart, and to ultimate Trust in the Journey.

With SATURN activating the GC this Spring, there can be (for the ego) challenging tests and initiations into the ultimate ‘Black Hole’ of what we ‘can’t know’ yet deep down something knows. SATURN in SAG gives us cause-effect feedback, and shows how it is to be in the Freedom of our Truth and Trust, and on our Heart Path, rather than going into separation and judgment towards others. Let’s keep on walking…. – Jumping through the Ring of Fire helps!

 

Lots of ARIES energy is UP too, in the Eclipto-sphere and chart, with ‘Amazon’ VENUS, and: MARS – meeting URANUS on the DAY of the Eclipse!

Now that’s quite the starter boost!

MARS / URANUS in AR opposite JUPITER retro in LI form also a cardinal T-Square with PLUTO in CAP – whoaaa! Re-activating the epic URANUS – PLUTO square (7 exact alignments between 2012 – 2015), now with JUPITER in LIBRA involved:

  • How do we move out of and free ourselves from unsustaining and even destructive control patterns and societal structures that waste and drain energies?
  • Shiva the destroyer / rebuilder can be invoked to help us move through the transformation.
  • What sustains us deep down, through change and evolution?
  • How can we work well (with least effort) with time and natural resources (esp. our inner resources)?
  • Sitting on the fence all too long, and trying to coordinate with everyone can be paralyzing.
  • Maybe a sudden breakthrough kicks us into the NEW?!


VENUS is now stationary in mid ARIES, and
will go retro on March 4 (until Apr 15), which will help us shift from being so oriented towards others (VENUS ‘Evening Star’ has a LIBRA undertone: pleasing, comparing, copying, judging) to finding our intrinsic value, and attract from there (VENUS ‘Morning Star has a TAURUS undertone)!
