VIRGO – Super PISCES Full Moon with NEPTUNE: Self-Aligning & Connectedness in the Flow of Life

7 Mar

Dear Cosmic Friend on Planet Earth,

Feeling the energy building?
Seen Her in Her waxing belly, these afternoons / evenings?
The VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon is coming, on MoOnday, March 9!

 

A friend of mine took this amazing photo of the strawberry colour Full Moon in Germany – some Moons ago 🙂


And She’s special in so many ways:

  • She’s the first SuperMOON of 3 in 2020.
  • She comes on the heels of the SUN / NEPTUNE conjunction in PISCES (once a year, on March 8).
  • And also on the heels of the VENUS / URANUS conjunction in TAURUS (once a year, on March 8).
  • MERCURY will go out of retro on the DAY of the Full Moon, March 9 – opening up another almost 7-week retro free time March 8 – Apr 25 when PLUTO goes retro.
  • She ushers in the next (one of two this year) Friday the 13th of March – Day of the Sacred Feminine!
  • She’s the last Full Moon in WINTER 2019 / 20 (after the CAN – CAP Partial Lunar Eclipse on Jan 10, and the LEO – AQ Full Moon on Feb 8 / 9) – the next Full Moon will be the first Spring FM, on April 7 in LIBRA – ARIES!

 

As with every Full Moon, and esp. with this NEPTUNE enhanced one, it can be a very emotionally / psychically ‘pregnant’ phase, as things come to a peak and culmination, esp. on the VIRGO side of  anxiety, worries and concern – well, of course mainly related to the potential of picking up (PI) the apparently pervasive corona virus.

If you’re interested in an astrological perspective on the Virus, China, and the Eclipses, check out my freshly released ASTRO~News blog.


Good news:

Things come not only to a culmination but also to fruition (think: Full Moon – Harvest Moon, and VIRGO), to be released (a la PISCES via the SUN, now close to NEPTUNE, plus MERCURY at the very end of its retro phase , and in turnaround ‘storm’ until March 19).
Esp. after a SuperMOON.

Let’s allow Life to BE (PISCES), and keep doing the Practice (VIR) that keeps us healthy, well & whole, and connected, from which right action ‘in the world’ emerges naturally.

What’s that for you?
Yoga, good nutrition, music, walks in Nature (and definitely be the Ocean) are ‘simple’ and good ones in my life.
Balance (do I hear Full Moon?!) of the spiritual / psychic / energetic with the grounded, embodied Self.

The immense wave of SUN / NEPTUNE in central PISCES (with SCO undertone) – their yearly alignment will be exact tomorrow March 8 – feeding into the Full Moon on March 9 leads over into ARIES via CHIRON & LILITH:
Transformation in the making, for Spring and New Life in Becoming!

What a cosmic tidal wave this can be, esp. mentally-emotionally-psychically!
One thing leads to another, and all is interconnected.
Domino and snow ball to avalanche effects…
Intensity and vulnerability through overwhelm and feeling confused….

With MERCURY in ‘exile’ in PI (ruling its opposite, organized VIR) and presently in retro (Feb 16 – March 9) turnaround ‘storm’, we could easily get mentally-emotionally overwhelmed and confused, since… all is connected, and we don’t have all the information required to think straight. Well, the dots are being slowly connected…
‘Gone fishing’ / time out – literally by the water, meditating, or taking extra naps has been and still is a good way of allowing things to run their course, be washed out of our system, and fall into place in a new way.

  • What’s the Medicine that PISCES offers, at this ‘grand finale’ and in transition to ARIES?
  • What’s the Practice that the VIRGO FULL MOON prescribes?

 

If you’ve been feeling so much, and being sensitive to the collective energy, you’re not alone.
‘Their stuff?’ / Not yours?

Yes and no:
On a personal level, we don’t need to take in (PI) everyone’s woes and complications, or critique / try to improve (VIR) their behaviour that we can’t change, and a healthy membrane is a good thing, like a well-functioning immune system. Yay, esp. NOW.
Good to take care of our own body-mind-spirit Temple, says VIRGO.

Yet energetically we’re all / all IS interwoven, connected, and ONE, in the flow of Life, shows PISCES:
We’re spiritual Beings having a human experience. Something to take in and attune to, even more so with MERCURY already and for a long time in in PI (even after the retro phase, it’ll still go fully through PI, March 16 – Apr 10).

You prob. heard the quote before: “Don’t sweat the small stuff – it’s all small stuff” (Very apropos VIRGO).
I disagree with the latter part – esp. as we’re facing the virus.
But it’s worth checking in with awareness (VIR) whether a situation that upset us is actually ‘small stuff’ in the bigger context of things. And yet, why do we feel it in such a BIG way? What’s the emotion / need / even childhood theme (MOON) behind it? Let’s be kind to ourselves and one another, and practice forgiveness / release.

A spiritual teacher said: “Do you experience the suffering (as a phenomenon that comes and goes), or do you (as in: you personally) suffer the experience?”
And: “The Person has / is the Problem. Presence just IS.”

VIRGO represents the individualized Self, in that sense ‘the Person’ while PISCES represents Presence with / in / as Energy.
The VIRGO – Super PISCES Full Moon with NEPTUNE calls us to be aware of what makes us feel / take things so personally even though it might be ‘just random’ / accidental / part of the human condition.
Not to over-analyze and re-affirm ‘the problem’, rather to simply BE with it and watch it run its course…

On the PISCES ‘side’ (which is an oxymoron, since PI is all-encompassing), some of us sentient and sensitive ones are very attuned to the ‘psychic weather’ / oceanic atmosphere around us.
Maybe we came with this gift (which can sometimes feel like a curse), or it was evoked early in life.

  • Can you, the empathic Person, avoid being drawn into everyone’s emotional field, and experiencing it as your own? Do you need a ‘shield’? Or an energetic release practice? Got a tip for you below.
  • And what of that IS actually a reflection of you?
    VIRGO’s awareness & discernment sure help.
  • Can you let go, release the need to do something with what happened, and allow things to be as they are?
  • Can you let people be who they are, rather than trying to ‘correct them’? 
  • Have you noticed how your (PISCEAN) vibration actually changes them / the situation in a better way than your (VIR) need to ‘fix’ or ‘reform’ them?
  • How do you bring yourself, and what brings you back into alignment (VIR) with your true Soul Nature?


Things flow so much easier (PI), and the Universe ‘has our back’ when we’re true to and in alignment with ourselves (VIR).
I.o.w., when I take care of myself, knowing who I am and what works for me / how I work best it can’t be ‘wrong’ for others. Maybe just a matter of conveying it compassionately.
Whole-istic Astrology is about Realizing and Living your True YOU.
Magic and synchronicities are our companions, life is more fun and joy, and we’re naturally led to do what we’re best at, and meet people on the way whom we resonate and co-create with.

Versus trying to be everything to everybody, bending over backwards to accommodate, protecting your image and social status, and building up a fake persona, not wanting to loose face in the eyes of others, and being more perfect than you are, etc. All of that takes so much energy, comes from the ego, and actually goes against what nature intended for us:
To be authentically ourselves.
HA – seems like CHIRON & LILITH now in early ARIES agree wholeheartedly.

In this sense, more BEING in natural alignment, and less ego directed DOING (as a compensation mode) is what the Astro Doc prescribes, always, and esp. brought out by this VIRGO – Super PISCES FULL MOON.
Noticing and being aware (a VIRGO specialty) of what’s going on are the first steps to nature-ally re-align.

 

How does the VIRGO ‘Earth Angel’ in us show up in this?

 

Virgo and Mercury Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

Let’s be aware (VIR) and in a loving, open, neutral place (PI), with the washing up and out of old emotions, thoughts and vibrations.
And yes, wash (PI) our hands (ruled by VIR) as needed….

Maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, and our collective (PI) and personal (VIR) connection with / in it and conditioning by it, is showing up now…
via MERCURY for a looong time in PISCES, incl. retro (Feb 16 – March 9) mostly in PI, and again in PI March 16 – Apr 10! And via the (yearly) meeting of the SUN with NEPTUNE that’s been building up – exact tomorrow March 8.

Conditioned shadow expressions as the Victim – Perpetrator – Saviour – Martyr dynamic can easily play out now.
Our ‘job’ with VIRGO is to catch those with our Self Awareness.
Like, asking ourselves when energy is draining or we feel overwhelmed (PI low vibrations): Which role/s in the triad am I playing here?

Then you may ask: HOW to (a VIRGO approach) release all THAT?
I hear VIRGO getting concerned…

Impossible to resolve it all with a ‘strategy’, ‘method’, or ‘fix’, or by analysis…

We can’t keep these collective-connective waves from coming.
But we can practice surfing and navigating them skillfully
 (that’s where VIRGO comes in) and, rather than judging and resisting, BE with it all (PISCES) in a good vibration, and loving, heart-ful way.

 

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

 

Which of these themes are getting washed up – to be released?
They can be also seen in your chart – esp. where the VIRGO – PISCES axis is
(House/s, Planets…).
We can expose ourselves to the cosmic, universal,  unified and unifying PISCEAN Field, transmitted by the SUN & NEPTUNE.

 

Triple Goddess Maiden, Mother, Crone, with Waxing, Full, and Waning Moon, representing the stages of Womanhood

And channel the energy into this human dimension, by tuning into the grounding gifts of Grandmother MOON in VIRGO, sign of the Sacred Feminine and Triple Goddess.

How can Your cosmic gifts be actualized, put into service, and help You be in alignment with Your cosmic assignment?

 

Ahh – the Full MOON on March 9 also leads over to Friday the 13th of March (one of the two Fridays the 13th this year – next one in Nov) –
Day of the Sacred Feminine (article to follow), since it relates to VENUS (Friday is VENUS-Day) and the MOON with her 13 lunar cycles every year.

 

The VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon Chart

The 19º37′ VIR – PI Full Moon will be exact at 10:48 am PDT on MoOnday March 9.

Immediately obvious:

We’re in a VERY PISCEAN realm – balanced by the VIRGO MOON.

Mid-PISCES (which has a SCO undertone) SUN, together with its Ruler NEPTUNE.

MERCURY the ‘Messenger’ which rules VIRGO is for a very long time in the PISCEAN oceanic realm this year:
Since Feb 16, until Apr 10, and has been going retro (March 5 – 28) mostly in PI too!
MERCURY in PI esp. during the retro phase has brought a lot of confusion and overwhelm into the collective mental field, yet is also attuning us to openness, connectedness, and fluidity of the Mind

The SUN & NEPTUNE can be experienced as a vital-energetic drain. And is also an invitation to consciously BE in the vaster Energy Field and tune into Oneness of / as All-That-Is…

 

The essence of timeless Tao: Yin-Yang Balance – always dynamic and interwoven

The SUN /  NEPTUNE / MERCURY ‘field’ in PI show us: All is unified and ONE.

Letting go of mental escapist addictions, hooks and hang-ups (MERCURY in PI), or of being caught in the collective web would be so healing.
Perhaps through sound, music, dance, and vibrational medicine.

MERCURY in PI responds well to those vibrational ‘messages’, rather than being more inundated, confused, and hypnotized by ‘news’ in the overwhelm of media (also ruled by PI).
Which is not a suggestion to put the head into the sand.
Rather an opport-Unity to let go, and tune into deeper messages.

 

Big Wave Surfer Maya Gabeira

 

As we immerse fully into the PISCEAN field there is just energy, a ‘quantum soup’.
Which can be overwhelming and chaotic, for the individualized, ‘separate’ human personal self. Examples are everywhere, incl. the constant influx / inundation of media (also ruled by PISCES), paradoxically creating FOMO (fear of missing out) – where we never get enough, and still don’t know…
I guess you’re getting the picture…. 

Interconnectedness of ALL can, for our separate identity, be overwhelming, confusing, make us vulnerable – or make us want to escape, be ‘addicted’ to ‘the (temporary) state of bliss and union’, etc.
The invitation is to experience, immerse, and merge in the field of Oneness, knowing it doesn’t go away, and is omnipresent.

The SUN now in PISCES is bringing Solar Consciousness to the bigger, longer, and more transpersonal influences of NEPTUNE in PISCES 2012 – 2026, and perhaps in retrospect also to CHIRON in PISCES 2010 – 2019.

So much is coming together now…

Allow it, and allow yourself to BE.
Maybe that means letting go of, forgiving, releasing something, some ‘disappointment’, ‘illusion’, etc. (chances are in the area of life related to PI in your chart).

CHIRON in PISCES has shown over the last decade how old, early, time-transcending wounds came up in this process (esp. for those of us born in the 1960’s under CHIRON in PI, and anyone with PI placements).
As James Hillman summed it up in a Jungian seminar in Victoria a few years ago: There are two basic early childhood wounds:
Abandonment and overwhelm
 (invasion, abuse).
We might have experienced one more than the other, or both in combination. They often lead to addiction – as an escape, and / or substitute for genuine connection… Real connection is Healing.

A Review of the effects of CHIRON in PISCES over the last decade would be quite helpful and integrative.

And what’s with MERCURY, now back to the beginning of PI (will re-enter on March 16)?

I call the AQ – PI cusp also ‘Kuan Yin Point’ – This Chinese female Buddha offers Compassion for Humanity and All Life Forms.

Offering Kuan Yin Blessings for China and for all Sentient Beings!

 

On this note: Is MERCURY retro over on March 9?

Technically yes, when it stops its retro motion, and is going slooooowly forward again. Which means: Next week, MERCURY is in turnaround station, aka storm, like a gear shift, until it catches some momentum from March 19  on – YES, at Spring Equinox – and will be out of post-retro ‘storm’ by then, but still in post-retro ‘shadow’ until March 30. Yes, Feb & March have been major M-r months.

The next 1 1/2 weeks are still ‘HOT’ post-retro wise, and it would be good to be very clear with agreements and communication, yet also an excellent time to also slow down, and RE-ceive messages that help with integrating the retro phase themes.

Once MERCURY is (fully) out of retro we’ll have another retro-free acceleration phase – until PLUTO goes retro, on April 25. We’ll experience quite the shift with the next New Moon in fierce & swift ARIES, on March 24.

 

NEPTUNE in PI’s need for Connection and Oneness with the Great Mother, the Universe, the All, can lead to ‘looking for Love at the wrong places’, going on a compensation course via addictions of all sorts that promise to let the ‘me’ go away for a while, but hey, it does come back each time, which can turn into a painful vicious cycle.

These ‘depleting’ tendencies can be met by our awareness of wholeness (Full Moon in VIR) from which renewed Consciousness that-IS (PI SUN) can come.
Practices that lead us to a physical, sensate awareness of wholeness, like mindfulness meditation, Yoga, walks in Nature help, ideally integrated into our life as a healthy routine (VIR).

What are other concrete practices, maybe healthy rituals you can DO (VIRGO) that help us come back into Oneness with / in Life?

Often we have to feel what’s now ripe to be healed. There may be catalysts that bring out the old wounds – to be also healing agents. Rather than spiritually bypassing the wounds, indulging in them, or escaping into addictive behaviour, how can we do our part in letting go and healing?

 

The Full MOON in VIR – PISCES, together with the North Node now (until June 2020) in CANCER invites us to invoke Divine Mother / Goddess energy that is always available to support us and all sentient Beings.
Like Kuan Yin, or Mother Mary, or many other Mother Goddesses.

We can’t ‘do it all’ but we can ask for assistance from Higher dimensions
See how your energy shifts…! And hey, it’s been said that Angelic helpers have to be asked – they don’t interfere.

Maybe it helps us with dropping resistance and separation, and, rather than trying to armour ourselves against the ‘tsunami of energy’ (since as sensitive souls we tend to take things in, and they sit and stick there, and possibly contaminate our inner environment) we can ask and allow the energy to gently leave us.

And when it comes to the corona virus, of course good to strengthen the immune system, rather than going into pandemic panic (very PI). Fear and survival mode are contagious, lower the immune system, and we re-act from reptilian brain place, and separate / isolate us.
How can we make sure to stay connected with one another, and, rather than cultivating worry vibes send healing blessings to all affected?

 

Crystal (mainly clear Quartz) activated Voyager Tarot card II – Priestess – Crystal activation and Photo by Melanie

 

VIRGO is the energy of the Harvest Goddess,  Priestess, and Sacred Feminine who is whole and complete, clear and aligned with her sacred Self – which keeps her / us well and in integrity.

VIRGO practices self-awareness, and tends to ‘her’ body-mind-spirit Temple through clearing, discernment, sacred and spiritual practice, such as ceremony and ritual.

Which means in our practical daily life:
A body / health / wellness / nutrition practice and lifestyle.
A healthy body in a healthy spirit.
Honouring ourselves and our body-temple.
Practice Is Perfect.

  • Is there a practice you can adopt / pick up again right now that would benefit your well being?
    Something simple and self-sufficient, like:
    Cell phone free walks, Yoga, healthy exercise, getting more regularly fresh air, 5 min meditation before meeting someone, or before going to bed, blessing the food you eat?
  • Which ‘recipes, remedies, and rituals’ would your inner Mentor prescribe?
    Like:Adding / removing something from your diet, adjusting you sleep hours, or your work style, introducing certain practices that make you overall happier and healthier, a morning ritual?
  • Is there something is ripe and ready now to be harvested, as in: let go of?
    The phase after the VIR – PI Full Moon, before the first Spring New Moon (March 23) is perfect for Spring cleaning & clearing for the home and for a body cleanse.
  • Would a ceremony help release something old and outlived, and / or help invite beneficial cosmic energies?

 

What a creative combo of both PI and VIR could look like:

  • Ride the waves, be in your(!) element.
  • Your skills are what comes easy (not about ‘overcoming problems’).
  • Holding space for others can be the best service you can offer.
  • What is Service of & to the Soul?
  • Clean up with music.
  • Energy Medicine. AstroSomatics.
  • Sacred Geometry.
  • Astrology and its practical, embodied benefits.
  • Being in the world, yet not of the world. Doing what needs to be done, yet not in attachment.
  • God helps those who help themselves. Doing our share, and trusting divine intervention.
  • Random acts of service bring fulfillment.
  • Energetic hygiene.

 

On the note of the latter (energetic hygiene), here’s a very helpful practice I learned years ago from meditation & Qi Gong teacher Susan Broznitsky:

Releasing Stuck / Toxic Energy – Visualization Practice

…and yes, as we are doing the practice, we extend it into the field of Planet Earth…

We all carry energy around that we picked up somewhere, and that’s sitting in us. What we can’t release can become toxic (low PI-SCO vibration). It can be quite frustrating to feel or sense those things that are not directly ours (yet in a bigger sense they are ours too…).
We might have picked things up from other people or from the collective field, through resonance and empathy, and / or by being in a low and receptive vibration (like feeling angry, and docking on to the anger around us). As empaths, and when we have a lot of PISCES in us we tend to take a lot IN, and need to make sure we release it too.

Close your eyes, and sit (or stand) upright.
Visualize your energy body that’s you and surrounds you as a beautiful temple, or cathedral, or garden, or any sacred space that speaks to you. Create or remember that sacred space vividly, in front of your inner eye.
Now locate where in your body, esp. in which Chakra area you have taken something in that’s still ‘sitting there’ and might feel like a blockage.
Realize and acknowledge that you must have opened up doors of your sacred space to let ‘it’ in, probably in front of your body when you were facing ‘it’.
Now you’re invited to go to the back of your body in that same area, and open the doors or windows there (maybe they have never been opened? Or you weren’t aware that you can do this even?)!
Now allow the stuck energy to leave your space, blessed and transformed – since it is a sacred space. With ease and accompanied by the light. Hold space for this process. You may experience a light ray coming in from the back where you open the door / window, helping the energy to leave on this light ray.

Your experience is unique, and might have a message for you too.
How do you feel now?

You can do this practice when you notice having taken something in that kicks you off balance, and also in hindsight, even after years of ‘cultivating’ something in you.
I’m not saying, do it all the time, to avoid any discomfort… but as a tool to work with, so that the energy can flow.

This is a great tool (well, I like it, and the clients whom I have shown it to) that is easy, can be done anywhere, without even anyone noticing. 🙂

 

Other Energies in the VIR – SuperPI Full MOON ‘Field’

Call of the Mountain – Photo by Melanie

 

Mountain Medicine

Yes, still a lot of CAPRICORN energy too, activated by MARS these weeks (Feb 16 – March 30).
Which makes Earth the strongest element these days / weeks.

And the Full Moon in VIRGO goes into Earth Trine with them all (MARS, JUPITER, PLUTO, SATURN), on March 9.
A call for integrity, simplicity, humility, and an opportunity to work with what we’re best at and what’s in alignment.
The spiritual practice is a mountain path – don’t carry extra ‘baggage’ with you, and stay on track and in the practice.

MARS in CAP is a solid energy that holds everyone (esp. oneself and those in leadership) accountable, AND helps us to be mature & responsible, step up to the occasion with our cap-acities, and get the job done.
Accomplishment and completion are CAP’s big motivators.
CAP keeps it real, and doesn’t like waste of Time and Energy
(well, super relevant now with the virus).

The ‘grand finale’ of MARS contacts is only coming up – between the upcoming Full Moon and the next New Moon in ARIES (by then, MARS will be already in AQ).

MARCH 14
MARS in mid CAP sextiling NEPTUNE in mid PI.
Great time for work flow. And to be in connectedness which naturally leads us to what matters most.
There’s always primo energy for it available.

MARCH 20
MARS in late CAP meets JUPITER.
Looots of energy – for what brings out our Best and what we’re built for
(yet it might have been hard to tackle thus far).
Let’s use that energy – round Spring Equinox!
Also great for Spring cleaning, of course.

MARCH 22
MARS in late CAP meets & passes PLUTO.
Whoooaa – Power House / Super Hero energy.
Likely the highlight of the MARS in CAP Transit – and it can express on different levels:
Transforming anger into productive work.
Moving Mountains? What needs to change to accomplish this…?
Societal structures change when shadow comes out.
Deep inner work that transforms generational / historic / ancestral conditioning.
Doing the Soul Work.

 

Awakening (through) the Body, and EmBodying Freedom & Awakeness

Another earthy activation comes via URANUS being met by VENUS who recently ‘settled’ in TAU (March 4 – Apr 3).

Tomorrow, MARCH 8 – on the eve of the VIR – PI Big Wave Full Moon, VENUS newly in TAU meets URANUS.
EnJoy freely and without attachment – follow the body. Be surprised at what (or whom?) you fall in love with. Freedom from, for, and without any attribute and ‘opposite’ / other.

 

Lastly, LILITH & CHIRON, united in early ARIES are now (early to mid March) forming a sharp T-square with the Nodal Axis (North Node early CANCER, South Node early CAP). 
The on-going dilemma between doing what’s timely & required – yet not the hard / old / conditioned way – and being gentle and caring finds its resolution through being authentic and present with what shows up here-now. Apparently a challenge to be brave, yet just let emerge what’s in you. Be YOU, not their projection.
The next New Moon in early ARIES on March 24 will ‘come with’ CHIRON & LILITH.

Lots of shifts into newness-nowness!
A whole different scenario than in this outflowing, transitional, preparatory phase.

Ouroboros_Brush

Spontaneous AND perfect Zen brush painting of an Ouroboros, the mysterious alchemical winged serpent that bites its own tail. Very PISCES – VIRGO – if anything!

 

In essence:
The VIRGO – PISCES FULL MOON & Entourage calls us to be in Sacred Alignment, AND in Oneness with What-IS.


Cosmic Blessings for Wellness & Wholeness in Oneness, with the VIRGO – SuperPISCES Full MOON – and beyond!

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 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!    

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?

MARS in CAPRICORN (Feb 16 – March 30): Gett’n Stuff Done. Integrity in Action & (RE)Builder Energy

5 Feb

Hi, Fellow CosmoNauts, as in: Travelers & Navigators in the Cosmic Realms!

Let’s face it:

MARS (Hubble Space Telescope)

We’ve come a long way, with MARS moving (us) through SAG, since Jan 3! Hope you had a motivating and insightful time, Truth & Freedom moved you, and Spirit called you to follow your Heart!
And that your own SAG themes got activated in a way that sets you free.

On Feb 16, the energetic Warrior Archetype and ruling Planet of ARIES (which is so fresh and ‘hot’ these days, via VENUS, LILITH, and CHIRON) moves over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAPRICORN where we’re called to DO what we know and say, follow up on those high-flying visions and promises, do the work, and build what matters and lasts.

Here on the Canadian Pacific NorthWest Coast we’ve seen loads of snow mid-January, and massive rain (15-year record floods) in the last 2 weeks, which the meteo predictors promise will seize now. Hope and trust has carried us through. And once the light returns – in this case with MARS in CAP – the clean-up work begins.

When a Planet moves into a new sign we usually see shifts / events expressing the themes. Let’s watch for ‘hot’ Integrity Issues mid-Feb.
AND: On that very DAY, MERCURY in PISCES goes retro! This can be interesting…

 

Once MARS is solidly in CAP, all the CAP issues that have built up over the Winter and was strongest in Dec / Jan, esp. via the SUN, MERCURY, VENUS, JUPITER, SATURN, and PLUTO – culminating with the Full Moon / PLE on Jan 10 / the epic & epochal SATURN – PLUTO alignment on Jan 12 – are getting energized via MARS.
Great boosts for Evolution. It can also lead to anger at the system, and outbursts of violence. Let’s give energy to constructive outlets of building from integrity.

In its 2-year cycle, MARS hasn’t been in CAP since Spring to late Summer 2018 (then also retro).
Do you remember, was it a productive time for you?
Of course, the circumstances have changed since then, and the Astro Sphere too. Therefore we can’t compare directly, yet there might be parallels.

 

MARS in CAP is an upgrade of the Masculine.
It also reminds me also of David Deida’s work
 “The Way of the Superior Man”.

His book from 1997 was ground-breaking in the Men’s Movement.
In an audio book presentation (excerpt here), he intriguingly addresses three levels of masculinity:

  1. Grow for your own sake – I’d call it “Personal MARS”.
  2. Share and cooperate – “Interpersonal MARS”.
  3. Realize that everything is only change. Come to terms with death of everything which doesn’t stop the Superior Man from giving – he IS the giving. Feel your deepest purpose. – “Transpersonal MARS.”

 

MARS in CAP is a solid energy that holds everyone (esp. oneself and those in leadership) accountable, AND helps us to be responsible, step up to the occasion with our cap-acities, and get the job done.
Accomplishment and completion are CAP’s big motivators.
CAP keeps it real, and doesn’t like waste of Time and Energy.

Time to get going with those long awaited Spring projects! Hey, we got the energy and motivation now (no more excuse / blame, ha-ha), plus, thankfully the days are getting longer. CAP loves working with the Seasons.

MARS is considered ‘exalted’ in CAP (top position for MARS in the Zodiac)
Think: persistence, endurance, mountaineer, marathon runner, and builder… sustainable energy to reach a goal.

Let’s USE (yay, a buzz word for CAP) the Time and Energy as it’s available.
Plain and simple.
CAP likes Simplicity, and sticking to Priorities.

What does that mean for the CAP sides in us (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets, Nodes)?

Well, they get an energy boost, to be even more Capricornian, in terms of accomplishing and completing (yay! finishing!) what we’ve set out to do. Yet not the old hard, fear & control based way.
DO it, says MARS in CAP, you got the Energy now… well paced, and with consistent engagement. 

That’s for sure: The CAP side in your chart (either via Planets, SUN, MOON, AC, Nodes, or in any case the House/s CAP lives in) gets an energy boost.



If you feel called let’s check that out for you personally, and direct the energy in a good way, via a private session. 
You can even use the Flash Focus Sessions ($ 44 for 44 min, on until March 4) for that.

Just contact me via email (licht@islandnet.com), and we set it up.

 

 

 

What’s the Itinerary for MARS in CAPRICORN 2020?


What’s the Cosmic Activation it brings into the mix / Astro Weather, as it contacts other Planets
?

Rule of thumb, re the dates given below:
The energy is active / available in the whole week around the dates when it climaxes.
The build-up time is usually stronger than the outflow phase.

 

FEB 16
MARS enters CAP – Lead ON!
Moving forward with vigor and integrity.
What motivates YOU to accomplish what really matters?
What sustains your energy?

 

FEB 20 / 21
MARS in early CAP squares LILITH & CHIRON in early ARIES, and in Earth Trine with URANUS in early TAU.
Showing up in our authentic Nature (rather than in survival mode) is the Medicine that gives us a kick to get into gears and do what’s timely and has Priority. Freedom’s on the other side (and with us all along).
And hey, this can also mobilize women in / towards / against status-quo leadership.

 

FEB 24
MARS in early CAP meets the Lunar South Node, and opposes the Lunar North Node in early CANCER.
Just because it’s challenging / just because some authority said so, or we would ‘usually’ feel obliged / guilty we don’t have to do it (esp. not the hard way). Let’s lead with gentleness & care.

 

MARCH 14
MARS in mid CAP sextiling NEPTUNE in mid PI.
Great time for work flow. And to be in connectedness which naturally leads us to what matters most.
There’s always primo energy for it available.

 

MARCH 20
MARS in late CAP meets JUPITER.
Looots of energy – for what brings out our Best and what we’re built for
(yet it might have been hard to tackle thus far).
Let’s use that energy – round Spring Equinox!
Also great for Spring cleaning, of course.

 

MARCH 22
MARS in late CAP meets & passes PLUTO.
Whoooaa – Power House / Super Hero energy.
Likely the highlight of the MARS in CAP Transit – and it can express on different levels:
Transforming anger into productive work.
Moving Mountains? What needs to change to accomplish this…?
Societal structures change when shadow comes out.
Deep inner work that transforms generational / historic / ancestral conditioning.
Doing the Soul Work.

 

MARCH 30
MARS enters AQ
(until May 12)
Coming to the end of what YOU can do?
It takes a village / team / humanity to collaborate.
All things CO- rock.

 

MARCH 31
MARS freshly in AQ passes & initiates / activates SATURN (also freshly in AQ since March 21 – first phase until July 1).
Beyond old blocks, obstacles, fears, and patriarchal / hierarchical control, there’s Freedom. 

 

MOON – MARS Contacts

Besides the Martian activation / inter-action with other Planets, we’ll also feel (maybe even more personally) the weekly dynamics between the MOON and MARS – whenever the MOON makes a sharp aspect angle from a Cardinal sign (ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA, CAP) to MARS in CAP, either via conjunction, square, or opposition.
Yes, a great time to get work done. Just don’t work yourself up emotionally. And rather find a healthy / productive action outlet for anger than turning it against other Beings.

Here are the dates – mark your calendar:

FEB 18 
MOON in CAP meeting MARS

FEB 26
MOON in ARIES squaring MARS

MARCH 4
MOON in CAN opposing MARS

MARCH 11
MOON in LIBRA squaring MARS

MARCH 18
MOON in CAP meeting MARS

MARCH 26
MOON in ARIES squaring MARS

 

 

Where is MARS’s Rock-Solid Action Boost in CAP Happening in Your Chart & Life?

As you read this maybe you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in CAP? Then there’s more to MARS’s visit in CAP, since ‘he’ also activates your CAP Archetypes. They get a boost of energy – to show up and do the work.   

Saturn Rules Capricorn – Painting by Johfra Bosschart

And for all of us, whichever House/s CAP inhabits in our birth charts is the manifestation realm – The corresponding area of Life is about making something real – because it matters.

 

Our CAP House/s – we all have one (or two) – is the area of life where we’ll get activated by the MARS Effect – which can also be about turning conflict into doing the good work!

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

3rd House
You in Your Local Environment

4th House
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House
Your Creativity, Your 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.

 

May we all USE and work with the time and energy of MARS in CAP for the highest purpose!

MARS in late CAP turns direct on Aug 27: RE-newed Energy

27 Aug

Mars (Hubble Telescope picture)

We MADE it through MARS Retro!

MARS has been retro since June 26 (from early AQ back into late CAP) – here’s the blog post before the fact, if you’d like to read it up and review).
Believe it or not: It’ll go direct /  forward again today Aug 27 at 28-29° CAP!

It’ll be stationary / slow moving between 29° CAP and 2° AQ on the Community Building and ‘Prometheus’ Point until Fall Equinox, before picking up momentum, as it moves through AQ until Nov 15.

The CAP / AQ cusp that MARS activates now for a while (and already has, mid-May, and retro mid-Aug) is about collaboration in mature leadership, responsibility, and community.
We’ve seen lots of examples in the retro phase where this would have been necessary but wasn’t the case. What do you think?

MARS turning around in late CAP (where it’s the strongest in the Zodiac), close to evolutionary PLUTO is a renewing energy – and can even activate a push for renewable energy – given the catastrophic climate situation that requires a serious, timely turnaround of how resources on Planet Earth are being extracted and ‘used’ – or rather: where the Earth is stewarded in a responsible way.

  • If you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets end of CAP what’s the energy renewal for you, and how do you use it wisely? 
  • How is better collaboration now coming into place in your life?
    Maybe in different future oriented, innovative communities, groups, and systems…?
     

MARS activating the ‘Prometheus Point’ can be (esp. in square with URANUS – which is the Prometheus Archetype – exact on Sept 18) quite cathartic for innovative solutions, and revolutionary breakthroughs.
Watch for surprise news – and also watch out for accidents as a release valve for excess anger, and give the energy a better outlet.

LILITH is in the meantime in AQ, and will be met and passed by MARS on Oct 1 – what a boost for the liberation in our wild and FREE Nature!

 

Wishing you a boost of sustained and sustaining energy into September!
Melanie

MARS Retro 2018 in the making (June 26 – Aug 27): RE-calibrating the Inner Masculine. RE-activating Community and Cooperation.

9 Jun

Mars (Hubble Telescope picture)

MARS goes retro every two years, for 2 months.
It’s ON again: June 26 – Aug 27, 2018 and now in the making, a.k.a. MARS is ‘stationary’ (moving very slowly before the ‘U-Turn’)
Noticing it?

The process / prep has already started when MARS moved from CAP into AQ (which URANUS rules), and immediately into square with URANUS (May 15 / 16).|

Quite cathartic and catalytically, it brought out acutely:
Wake up, Earthlings!
What’s with Cooperation and Community?!
Who are your Friends? 

How can we move (rather than backwards into the hierarchical / subordinating / even abusive ‘Old Regime’ / shadow of CAP) into a brighter, freer Future together (AQ)?
As MARS will be in retro motion from Earth perspective from early AQ back to late CAP, and forward again (AQ-CAP-AQ) it crosses 3 times over the Community Building Point a.k.a. Prometheus Point (the revolutionary & enlightening Spirit brings Freedom to ALL) it will have significant effects on:

* RE-encountering Men ‘from the Past’
Like, literally running into men from our personal ‘history’, or being in an environment where men behave in a ‘retro’ way (for better or worse), and how that affects us.
Maybe we have ‘unfinished business’ with these men / with that modus operandi. Here’s the chance to clear karma (retro movement has this karma clearing effect too).

* RE-calibrating the Inner Masculine
Coming in touch with the Inner Masculine (whether we’re in a male or female body) who asserts what we want in a direct, straight-forward way.
Accessing hidden anger and resentment for not being more assertive.
MARS Retro gives us the chance to shift this.

* RE-conciling the traditional (CAP) and modern (AQ) Masculine – to bring out the Best of Both Worlds
MARS Retro asks us to check in:
What gives us and what takes energy / creates competition and conflict, in hierarchical / traditional structures (CAP), and in circles / with friends (AQ), and how to take it from there – rather than taking it out on each other or on ourselves.
Powerful Group Effects in Cooperation (CAP – AQ) can come from this, when we bring our energies synergistically together (AQ) for a cause and purpose (CAP), rather than – ego driven – exerting them against each other or top-down / bottom-up.

* RE-purposing & Freeing up RE-sources 
MARS retro from AQ back to CAP and forward to AQ again calls us to actively gain freedom from what uses up our time and resources (CAP) that can be re-purposed into what we really want (MARS).
Where have you enslaved yourself / let yourself be enslaved by something you own / that ‘owns’ and occupies you, your time, your energy / money / resources? What’s ready to be freed-up now?

Those of us you born with SUN, MOON, AC, MC, Nodes, or Planets in in (esp. late) CAP and (esp. early) AQ will be / are already most affected by this 2-months Martian Summer action.

And if you have Astro energies on the other 3 cusps end of AR / early TAU, end of CAN / early LEO, end of LI / early SCO that MARS squares or opposes a lot is stirred up for you too, to bring you back into a healthy energy expression and cooperation.

 

Let’s explore how this shows up for YOU, and in the World, in our 


Special ASTRO Parlour
MARS Retro 2018

MARS is in AQ for a looong time this year: 5 months!

May 15 – Aug 12, and again Sept 10 – Nov 15, due to the retro phase (June 26 – Aug 27).

We humans get an energy boost to show up and do the work that’s required in Community with  everybody contributing with their resources and what they’re best at (CAP), and where nobody’s the boss in old-consciousness ways. A circle of equals, beyond the linear / hierarchical authority model.

And what’s with the retro part of it?
It represents a re-calibration of how we pursue things, and of the ‘traditional Masculine’ as MARS goes back to CAP:
Ideally: Backing off from old school top-down ruling over. Moving to contributing our best qualities instead, and bringing them into community and humanity. ‘Seems like’ (no-brainer) there’s ‘unfinished business’ (CAP) around this, and even though it’s been brought up many times in history, we need to re-visit it now, to affect change.

 

Community of Wisdom Elders & Circle of Leaders – also CAP-AQ

The 13 Indigenous Grandmothers with the Prayer Scarves, gifted to them by HH the 14th Dalai Lama.

 

Here are a few markers of the MARS journey pre-, during, and post-retro:


As MARS goes forth and back and forth into AQ – CAP – AQ it squares URANUS that’s freshly in TAU now THREE times:
The initial square was May 16, again (under MARS retro) on Aug 1, and lastly (in Martian forward-direct mode) on Sept 18.


More liberating shifts obviously required, and on the horizon.
This can really shake things up when it comes to provocative, experimental, if not shocking, even traumatic, yet hopefully liberating and awakening breakthroughs and break-frees. Sounds like more social unrest and social movement to protection of Mother Earth.

 


Retro note:
Initiating (MARS) things from an Ego place (the Ego likes to hijack MARS the Warrior to get you what it wants, be pushy, bully, put people off, go into “my way or the highway” mode….) isn’t so cool in any case, and can esp. backfire under MARS retro.

There are even Astrologers who categorically use the formula for MARS retro “who initiates loses / needs to back off”.
I’d say it’s mostly an ego issue (MARS is the ego planet – and our ego hijacks our ‘Inner Warrior’ to get what it wants – and under MARS retro, the ego can be better seen for what it is, and put back into its place.
Initiating from the Heart might be exactly what’s required / needs to be come in more.
So, if there’s controversy and ego battles best to be the detached AQ and the Wise CAP Elder, and hold space for things to run their course and disintegrate in retro mode. Use the energy you save from disengaging for joining in community – to Build the New together.

 

Can become quite ‘interesting’ this Summer….

Here’s the U.S. chart for a reason:
MARS starts its retro journey 9°13 AQ after just having passed the Lunar South Node that station happens to be super close to the U.S. South Node at 7°35′ AQ. Themes around AQ shadow (cold technocratic, inhumane treatment) vs the LEO North Node (warm loving heart connection, celebration and welcome) is already UP these days and weeks and months, big time.
Plus, when MARS will be furthest back in CAP (28°37′, on Aug 27 – basically stationary mid-Aug – mid-Sept) it will ‘hit on’ the U.S. PLUTO (at 27°33 CAP) – its ‘Essential Point of Power’ – and just barely miss it.

That doesn’t sound very comfortable for the (PLUTO in CAP) establishment.

Chances are deep power agenda comes out (yay, JUPITER still in SCO this year helps!), AND people with integrity will make a stand – because they have to, are propelled to, and might have an irrefutable case and resources to do so.
So that the original constitutional and humane culture can return to the ‘Land of the FREE’.

 

Let’s see which Planets MARS meets in its AQ mode:

Ok, ok, just did a time line overview of the most important contacts of MARS in its journey into AQ, back to CAP, and then through AQ until Nov 15 – and that covers 2 pages.  
So, let’s keep it short and sweet, to the ones that stand out in the Martian itinerary:

 

  • As I said, MARS forms 3 squares from early AQ to URANUS (ruler of AQ) newly in TAU:
    May 15, then in retro Aug 1, and again in forward mode, Sept 18.
    At the very last day of its journey through AQ, Nov 15, MARS will go into sextile with URANUS which by then will be in retro, and back at the very end of AR (ruled by MARS).

    This ‘double’ (MARS – AQ – URANUS – AR) whammy is a very rare phenomenon that definitely gets our attention.
    New Earth Consciousness. One Earth, One People.
    Express it in in your life in liberating ways – wake up and be FREE!

 

  • MARS also forms 3 sextiles from AQ with CHIRON now freshly on the ‘Birthing Point’ in AR (which in turn is ruled by MARS): May 19, under MARS retro Aug 3, and in Martian forward mode Sept 13.
    Maybe more of us are being called to stand up for causes that we’re passionate about, and show up in authentic, vulnerable ways to let the world know why this matters – a new movement of Earth Warriors and Healers!
    Together with the MARS square to URANUS, there can be quantum leaps and domino effects.

 

  • A big Martian phase will be end of July, half-way through its retro period when MARS retro in early AQ will be tied exactly into the AQ – LEO Full Moon / Total Lunar Eclipse on July 27 – and MARS will be closest to the Earth on that day too!
    A strong polarity if not confrontation between We the People, We the independent Scientists, and We the synergistic and systemic Forward-Thinkers (AQ) meeting ‘Royalty’ / old privileges.
    How can bridges be built, to motivate (MARS) all to be Humanity conscious and Earth conscious (the Eclipse will be also in T-square with URANUS in early TAU)?

ARIES New Moon with URANUS, MERCURY Turnaround & CHIRON Entering ARIES: Breakthrough into the Authentic YOU!

14 Apr

Dear Astro~News Readers,

The energies from the pre-Easter Full Moon are getting turned up another notch – or a few:

You MUST feel this already – at least ‘in the making’ (as in: New Moon)!
Tomorrow’s New Moon in late ARIES comes with URANUS, and brings a liberating Firework:
Freedom from… Freedom for… and ‘simply’:

Freedom to be Authentically YOU!

Whatever is in the way, like polarization splits a la ERIS in ARIES (see my recent post for the Full Moon on March 31, with ERIS involved) is being recognized for what it is, and gets busted right on the spot.

No need to ‘assert or defend yourself’ (which is also an ARIES energy but always implies an ‘against’).
Simply be YOU! Says liberating URANUS, right next to the New Moon.

Which can perhaps look like this:
Being consciously (SUN) emotionally (MOON) free (URANUS).
Feeling it coming big time?

Imagine…
If more and more of us wake up and step into LIFE (ARIES) with this Power? It can have massive effects on our lives, onto society, humanity, and our Life on Earth.

I’d say this Spirit is pushing so strongly now to come alive that there’s no more holding back or regressing. 
Also catalyzed by MERCURY and CHIRON, wrapping round the ‘Emergence’ / “Come Alive” Point from PI to AR!

MERCURY is now stationary in early ARIES – going out of retro tomorrow Apr 15 – about 16 1/2 hrs before the NEW MOON:
How have you come to more authenticity in your conscious thinking and communication?
Maybe you caught yourself in old conditioned / fearful / fake / ‘strategic’ / pleasing-oriented inauthentic patterns in this MERCURY Retro phase since March 22, questioned this, and tried on a new approach? Ha, or ‘simply’ something authentic ‘escaped you’ and brought out what you really think. 🙂
Maybe you noticed that when you speak-as-you-are things flow, you come alive, and people really only meet you for real.
Thaaank you, MERCURY Retro!
More about MERCURY below 🙂

 

CHIRON is about to ‘Come Alive’ & enter ARIES on Apr 17!

…with stationary MERCURY as a ‘midwife’
For a try-on / preview phase until Sept 25, when it re-immerses itself into PISCES. And then from Feb 18, 2019 on, the full-on emergence of ARIES Medicine will show up.

All is fresh and NEW in ARIES.
The Medicine is to be Authentically YOU!
Emerging from the Collective Consciousness.
Which can be scary, and / or hugely liberating.

CHIRON brings up ‘wounds’ and awkwardness, and we feel like an outsider – in ARIES when we show up or stand up for ourselves, and for what matters to us. It might be also awkward if we didn’t have role models, or their teachings don’t apply to THIS. 
Yet, what the heck? says ARIES, It’s my life, this is ME.
Early ARIES is a Warrior / Survivor. All about the NOW.

That’s what ARIES is all about: NOW THIS!
Alive, alert, letting life force emerge in every moment – like blossoms surprising us daily now. Time for fresh beginnings – or for simply being present with what’s always NEW.

Show up in a new way, try out what you haven’t before, not in a long time, or don’t have a ‘model’ or comparison for. If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES doesn’t mind starting anew). The essence of being innovative.
Anger (and ARIES expression) can be your vulnerability yet also guide you to your Medicine.

Those of you born with CHIRON in ARIES (Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977) know a bit (or a lot) about this state of Being.
For you, round age 50 CHIRON will make its Return, and your ‘original wound / Medicine’ comes full circle.
All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in ARIES (or triggered by it, in LIBRA, CAN or CAP) we’ll get a CHIRON ‘kick’ too, to step forward, authentically as we are, esp. in the area of life related to our ARIES House in the chart.

Let’s explore how this shows up for YOU, and in the World (symptoms are already manifesting) in our…

Special ASTRO Medicine Parlour:
CHIRON Enters ARIES
The Medicine of Being Authentically YOU!

Coming Monday Apr 16
Afternoon and Evening Group to choose from.

 

Let’s take a look at the ARIES NEW MOON chart…

…and see which other Archetypes show up now, reminding us to let their energies enliven us!
The ARIES NEW MOON will be exact at 6:57 pm PDT tomorrow, Apr 15.

 

Boom! There’s URANUS right next to the SUN and MOON Union in late ARIES.

URANUS has finally passed ERIS (their connection happened over the last 2 years, 2016 / 17. See the blog post for the last Full Moon, describing the theme – disruptive, shock and awe, ‘splitting’ and polarizing effects.

Their combined energy has been (well, one facet of it!) erratic, unpredictable, volatile (“You never know what comes next!”) which could have kept us on adrenaline / alert mode – and has also been used and ‘worked’ by ‘power players’.

Yet, on a higher vibrational mode (hey, good reminder: Astro Awareness is all about Raising your Vibration and be free – in my world anyway 🙂 ), it’s been a shake and wake-up call for a new approach to… everything – esp. old core issues that are up for transformation (PLUTO in CAP).
The Power is IN You.

As the shocking discordance producing scenarios are being integrated the (Uranian) Awakening in Humanity emerges big time now.
We the People don’t buy into the old ‘divide et impera’ (divide and rule) principle anymore that’s based on being set up against each other.


The NEW MOON just past ERIS and approaching URANUS (the MOON unites with URANUS on Apr 15 / 16, and the SUN on Apr 18) is a strong momentum towards Conscious Breakthrough and Freedom.

The ARIES NEW MOON with URANUS is unaspected (stands by itself without a link to other Planets) – that really stands out too!
This dynamic has ‘a life of its own’, which could manifest as ‘being in the closet’. But not for too long, with URANUS:
Liberation is ready to be released!

 

‘Winged Messenger’ MERCURY at the Beginning of ARIES 

…freshly out of retro (at 2:21 am PDT = 16 1/2 hrs before the NM).

Hope you’ve also had lots of paradigm shifts of / from the mind, with MERCURY retro, while URANUS the ‘higher octave’ of MERCURY (still) also in ARIES, on a transpersonal dimension has been rattling us to wake up.

MERCURY is now in post-retro ‘storm’ in its ‘U-turn’ from retro to direct – a re-adjustment time (like a ‘reverse culture shock’ which can happen when we come back from a re-treat to our ‘known’ environment). Let’s give it a week or so to integrate.

The ‘storm’ (MERCURY moving very slowly in forward gear) goes technically until Apr 24, followed by the post-retro shadow until May 4 (when it goes over the Zodiac degree zone which it went retro from = 17° AR).
A good time to process and start to act on ARIES Retro themes that have come up, a la “Back to the Beginning!”:

  • Did M-r re-connect you with people from the ‘beginnings’ when you started things / when you were new in town / in your work…?
  • Did it bring that spirit back?
  • Was that refreshing and re-inspiring, to bring you back to a ‘Beginner’s Mind’ approach?
  • Or did it show you (ha, the CAP contrast that also came up – MERCURY in triple square with SATURN): “Been there, done that. That was me in the beginning, Now with all my experience however…” (a fine line between being realistic and judge-mental).

Mainly, it’s about Authenticity and Origin-ality, with M-r in ARIES.

The stationary MERCURY invites CHIRON over from PISCES into ARIES: Being YOU is the Medicine!

MERCURY and CHIRON (only 5 degrees apart from each other, wrapping around the ‘Emergence Point cusp from PI to AR) are also unaspected. What brings you ‘back to life’? It’s YOUR Life.

 

Who else shows up for the ARIES New Moon Party?

As you see in the chart, there’s lots of cardinal activation in the New Moon and beyond: (Soon CHIRON), MERCURY, the SUN / MOON, URANUS, SATURN, MARS, LILITH, and PLUTO are all in cardinal signs, actually only two of the four: ARIES and CAPRICORN:

What are you initiating (AR), and where do you show up in leadership and integrity (CAP) – without taking too much on or becoming a scapegoat?!

 

Vibrant Country Goat

MARS in CAPRICORN having passed SATURN (Apr 2) will unite with LILITH on Apr 19 and with PLUTO on Apr 26!
A MARS activation happens only every 2 years.

MARS in CAP is a ‘kicker’ for all of us with SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in CAP, but also for the ARIES, CANCER, and LIBRA sides in us which aren’t by nature accomplishment oriented but can use a boost (inner / outer Spring clearing and ‘reno’ anyone?).

Check out my Astro~News blog for MARS in CAP 2018.

  • With MARS past SATURN, have you noticed (since early April) a shift to leave obstacles, frustrations, fears, shoulds, expectations, limitations behind and move on anyway?
    A challenge perhaps yet going ahead, with ‘right action’ is what matters.
    Congrats on the MARS – SATURN front!
  • Now as MARS meets LILITH this coming week, go with / come from what’s natural for and in you. Work with your time and resources (what you’re naturally good at, and what you have access to) , which is powerful and transformational (MARS / PLUTO – coming up end of the month!).
    Let Being in Your True Nature express itself. Work with your strengths, and be in your power.

 

Back to SATURN:
The ‘Ringed One’ is also stationary this month of April, since it goes retro on Apr 17 – at 9°9′ CAP (until Sep 6). 

If you have anything on or round 9° CAP (and also AR, CAN, LI) you probably notice the pressure. Yet, it’s the pressure of a chiseling away of what you don’t need anymore and actually, what you are NOT. 

I felt called to look up the Sabian Symbol for the SATURN station (haven’t brought those in in a while – being positively retro here, let’s see..):

“CAPRICORN 9°: AN ANGEL CARRYING A HARP

KEYNOTE: The revelation of the spiritual meaning and purpose at the core of any life situation.

This picture simply says, “Heaven is within us.” All we have to do is to be open and listen to the total harmony of life, a harmony in which we play a part that is necessary to the completeness and meaning of the whole. In order to do this we have to surrender our separative ego- consciousness and flow with the universal current which, to the religiously minded person, is the Will of God.

This is the fourth symbol of the series. The technique it implies is that of ATTUNEMENT to the rhythm of universal life. Angels are to be considered personalizations of various aspects of this life, and totally subservient to its rhythms and purposes.”

This much for the Ringed One teaching us to model ourselves after other Winged Ones… ❤

Yet also, to realize that we can (from a SATURN perspective) ‘repurpose’ situations (incl. those challenging ones that we suffer, resist, and judge) by connecting with their spiritual core (PLUTO) and inner nature (LILITH). Which brings them to a higher vibration, as we surrender to the Higher Order of the Universe to use us, for a higher purpose.

 

Speaking of Higher Power and Purpose…
PLUTO in CAP is also stationary this month at 21 / 22° CAP, as it will go retro on Apr 22 (until Sept 30) – just before MARS passes PLUTO (Apr 26).

I see this dynamic on a societal level (together with the URANUS / New MOON in MARS’s domain ARIES, in wide square with PLUTO / MARS) as a strong momentum for revolutionary uprising against dominating establishment that holds and abuses power and isn’t in integrity. 
True leadership requires integrity – one of the essentials (PLUTO) of CAP.


As SATURN (authority) and PLUTO (power) both go retro this month
(which happens yearly in April, yet: extra activated via the AR New Moon, MARS, and LILITH this year) these positions and institutions are being held accountable so that ‘real change’ can come from this.

On an inner / spiritual (PLUTO) level, any soulful action in integrity is powerful (MARS / PLUTO in CAP).  And we’re called to find inner authority (SATURN retro) and inner power (PLUTO retro) again.

 

JUPITER this year in (PLUTO ruled) SCORPIO helps with revelations of what used to be under cover, hidden, taboo, in the closet – to evoke a change for the better.
With JUPITER presently (until July 10) retro it’s time to re-visit certain ‘dark corners’ that might look scary yet are important to clear, process, and transform.

 

VENUS now in TAU is about to go into opposition with JUPITER in SCO – (also on Apr 17): Enjoying this precious human embodiment with all our sense perceptions comes with seeing the bigger picture (JUPITER) of impermanence and change (SCO).

VENUS – JUPITER connect with the Planetary Archetypes in CAP, namely: MARS / LILITH / PLUTO:
How can we work with this human dilemma and tension (the joy of being alive vs. the changefulness) without engaging in attachment and suffering, in a ‘simple’, deep and mature way?
Maybe starting with some acts of voluntary simplicity (phew, can be applied in so many ways…).

 

‘See you’ next time, in person here in Victoria, online, here on this ‘blog channel’, on my FB Page, or on the email Astro~News!
Next one: for the AR New Moon to the SCO – TAU Full Moon / the Wesak Moon.

LIBRA – ARIES Easter Full Moon with ERIS / URANUS, and MARS / SATURN: Liberation and Peace in a Polarized World

30 Mar

Dear Astro~News Readers!

Let’s welcome the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon!

Not only as the March Blue Moon (second one, after March 1), and First Full Moon in Spring, heralding Easter the day after (yes, Easter is a lunar calendar festival, celebrated on the Sunday after the first Spring Full Moon)!
But also, since it brings lots of liberating shifts!

 

Young Hare, by Albrecht Duerer (original at Albertina, Vienna)

 

Surprise – surprise!
An unexpected Archetype’s ‘on board’ of the ARIES activation this month:

Not only URANUS but also ERIS (presently at 23°16’ AR) will be catalyzed by the LI – AR Full Moon (March 31) and by the New Moon in ARIES (Apr 15)!

Eris_Antikensammlung_Berlin

Eris – Antikensammlung Berlin

A befriended Astro client asked me a few days ago what my take on Eris, Sedna, and other seldomly looked-at and newly discovered Astro Archetypes is.
Which made me realize: 

It’s ERIS season again (yep, not just ARIES season). And, even more so: ERIS has been actually (perhaps overlooked but very effectively) operating for a while in ‘tandem’ with URANUS in ARIES.
Both just come out of that crazy 2 – 3 year alliance mirrored in world events.

Who / what / which Archetype is ERIS, and how does it show up now personally and societally?

ERIS, the most massive and second-largest dwarf planet known in the Solar System, was only discovered in 2005 (one of the reasons why PLUTO was demoted of its Planet status in 2006!), has an eccentric 561(!) year orbit around the SUN (more than twice as long as PLUTO), and has been almost the whole 20th and beginning of the 21st century in ARIES!

Even if you have ‘nothing in ARIES’ you do: ERIS (that’s another – personal – story, showing how you respond to / with that Archetype!)

The unevolved role of the ERIS Archetype – the Greek goddess of discord and strife is seeding separation – which we’ve seen a lot lately in humanity.
“She stirs up jealousy and envy to cause fighting and anger among men. At the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, all the gods were invited with the exception of Eris, and, enraged at her exclusion, she spitefully caused a quarrel among the goddesses that led to the Trojan War.”

Here’s where ERIS can evolve, according to Doug Walker in this excellent ERIS intro article:
“If the ERIS Archetype is developed fully, humanity may never have to experience war again. The feminine ERIS will balance the aggression of MARS. A well developed ERIS Archetype could banish all war. The ancient prophesy of swords turned into plowshares could be realized.”

May CHIRON entering ARIES (which is immanent, starting Apr 17 – until Sept 25 2018, and then fully ON from Feb 18, 2019 on until 2026 / 27 when it will meet ERIS) help with healing what makes war possible.

But realistically speaking (says SATURN in CAP now too…), we gotta start from and acknowledge where we’re at.
Has it ever been a period of discord, disruption, and seeding of separation in society over the last 2 years, esp. via the media!
The recently revealed social media scandals of sensitive private data being harvested and exploited to split the population by manipulatively feeding them back ‘news’ and intensifying what they believe in or side with in a way that could have tipped the scales for the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, and the Brexit referendum.
A prime example of large scale collective seeding of discord and separation.
Plus the huge trend of ‘disruptive technology’ which can be abused in so many ways…

As well as the crazy making U. S – North Korea conflict, scandalous school shootings in the U.S. and the heated gun control debate, and the Catalan call for independence (URANUS and ERIS have been on Barcelona’s ARIES SUN and not far from Spain’s MOON in the last years (Check out my astrological Catalunya Independence blog post) are all prime examples of ERIS at work – together with URANUS.

 

Uranian Liberation & Promethean Mercury Lead ON.

Prometheus – the Archetype of Uranus – Bringing the Fire of the Gods to Humanity

The Archetype of URANUS the Awakener (shocking and rude awakenings, in this case) reflects not only (or at least not always immediately) liberation but also disruption, distortion, trauma, and in combination with ERIS (which happens once in a century only) has been highly explosive and discordant. Esp. since both are also in assertive ARIES.

May the shocking revelations (JUPITER in SCO certainly helps with that) that are coming through now lead to freedom of humanity on a higher and more conscious level!

Good to know: URANUS has now passed ERIS (their ‘hottest’ years were 2016 / 2017).
So, my sense is the shocking discordance producing scenarios might integrate, as (Uranian) Awakening in Humanity continues. People don’t buy into the old ‘divide et impera’ (divide and rule) principle, based on being set up against each other anymore.

ERIS in ARIES is a strong Full Moon (March 31) and New Moon (Apr 15) catalyst.
See the Full Moon chart below.
Bringing the ERIS / URANUS low grade manifestation to the bright light of SOLAR Consciousness (the SUN is very strong in ARIES) IS a game (or rather: out-of-game) changer. Waking Up from being set up to fight / war  against ‘the other’ brings  for true URANIAN Liberation.

 

MERCURY in ARIES at the retro mid-point, connecting with the SUN on Apr 1 = Day of Enlightened Insight (for more about the whole M-r phase check out the blog post).

This certainly helps also with breakthroughs, aha effects, paradigm shifts, and mental liberation from the agitating ‘war on mind’ / mind at war with itself, and for a fresh approach.
With the MERCURY – SUN Enlightening Insight contact, a ‘New MERCURY’ (like a New Moon) is born, and the SUN (Consciousness, Spirit) is leading now, while the MERCURY (Mind) follows. This is the ‘Promethean’ phase of M-r. Prometheus is the URANUS Archetype. A liberating force. Forward-thinking, out-of the-
mind-matrix, etc.

“What and how do you Choose now newly?” asks the LIBRA FULL MOON, opposite the ARIES frenzy, and: “What brings Balance and PEACE in a Polarized World”?

 

MARS in CAP Passes Stationary (retro on Apr 17) SATURN:
Overcoming old blocks, obstacles, fears, and patriarchal control.
Moving forward, in Integrity and Inner Authority.

Mars (Hubble Space Telescope)

The LI – AR Full Moon links up in a sharp ‘T-Square’ with stationary SATURN (about to go retro, on Apr 17) and MARS. Now that’s quite the charge!

MARS and SATURN are the ‘outlet’ of that intense dynamic. Both strong in CAP. At best a momentum in Integrity and intrinsic Authority.

With the last New Moon, March 17, MARS, Ruler of ARIES, entered CAP – its ‘best’ position in the Zodiac (lots of energy to ‘move mountains’, and a push to persevere – in integrity), and will be in the Mountain Goat sign for a long time (basically until mid-Sept)
For more details, check out my MARS-in-CAP blog post.

Now MARS will pass SATURN (exact on Apr 2) – that’s big news, and the last massive shift catalyzed by the Full Moon!
Moving past serious authority challenges and obstacles, control, fears and resistances.
May Integrity lead the way!
And as SATURN will go retro on Apr 17 (for the first time since it entered CAP last Dec), we once again learn the lesson that true authority lays within.

Next up for MARS: A contact with LILITH, on Apr 19:
Our True Nature can’t be corrupted or controlled. Let’s move on and up from that place.

 

Here’s the chart of the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon with URANUS and ERIS in AR, in T-Square to MARS – SATURN:

SPRING EQUINOX 2018 (March 20 at 9:15 am PDT): Happy Astrological New Year! Happy New ARIES!

19 Mar

It is the Astrological New Year (SUN enters ARIES)!

Happy New Year, Astrology Friends out there!

Celtic Wheel of the Year,
with OSTARA / Spring Equinox, Beltane, Litha, Lughnassad, Mabon, Samhain, Yule, and Imbolc.


SPRING EQUINOX is the day of equal daylight and night hours.

From tomorrow onward, the days are getting longer than the nights, in the Northern hemisphere – the reign of the SUN over the next 6 months until FALL EQUINOX.


It is one of the sacred Corner Stones of the natural yearly cycle (with its two Equinoxes, and two Solstices).

 

Easter (celebrated on the Sunday after the First Full Moon in Spring) was named after Ostara!

Yep, Easter is one of the few Christian festivals based on the Solunar calendar.

This year, the first Spring Full Moon will be on MARCH 31, and the day after, APR 1 will be Easter Sunday!

The spirit of Newness and Liberation is building, as the SUN enters ARIES, to approach URANUS (once a year!). Their encounter will be this year on APR 18, at the very end of ARIES.

And just before that, on APR 15, will be the First NEW MOON of the Astrological Year, with MERCURY, SUN, MOON, and URANUS, all in ARIES, and CHIRON going into ARIES too, on APR 17!
Quite the firecracker kickstarter, and breakthrough catalyst!

But patience please (I know, it’s hard for lightning fast ARIES), we’re not quite there yet!
More about the ARIES NEW MOON in the Astro~News dedicated specifically to that. Stay tuned.

 

Here’s the ‘birth chart’ of SPRING 2018:

Just look at that close alignment of the SUN at 0°00′ ARIES – the ‘Emergence Point’ where Life Awakens and Arises – just barely leaving behind CHIRON at the very end of PI (the New Moon on March 17 came with CHIRON!).

Out of the PISCEAN unifying waters of Oneness New Life arises.
Just as snow and ice have (hopefully) melted, the rivers are running again, and fresh Life shows up from the ground-up, and from the blossoming trees out and down!

Likewise, this is the time to let go and out-flow the old wounds and woes of Winter, and perhaps of the last 7-8 years with CHIRON in PI – and let their teaching become our healing agents.
And to rise again, into the freshness and newness and NOWness of Life!

 

Also, MARS the ruling planet of ARIES has just entered a new sign – CAPRICORN where it’s exalted (really well positioned), which helps to get the job done – whichever project you’re tackling these months, with motivated discipline, perseverance, maturity and integrity!
A great energy to start Spring – and it reaches over into Summer!
Check out the blog post for MARS into CAP for more cosmic downloads for this period (which basically extends until mid-Sept, incl. the MARS retro phase end of June to end of Aug)!
We’ll hear more from MARS in CAP over the months to come!

 

The fresh ARIES SUN will square MARS in CAP (building up all week) on Sat March 24:
So much energy built up – use it wisely and purposefully!

On that note – for March 24 you’re welcome to join:
