17 Oct
Not even a week ago since JUPITER crossed the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCORPIO on 10/10.

And already SUCH a movement of so many of us who don’t put up with LIBRAN ‘being nice and polite’, playing the game, or compromising / compensating for other people’s s..t anymore.
The ‘me too’ tidal wave is one example of how airing what’s been hidden is empowering and transforming.

MUCH more to come, under JUPITER in SCORPIO until Nov 9, 2018.
Have I mentioned yet? SATURN will cross the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAPRICORN on Dec 19!

We’re also in the T-square from MARS in late VIR opp. CHIRON in PI (exact Sunday Oct 15 when the me too wave started), both in square to SATURN and LILITH in late SAG (the Galactic Centre) –
Truth Speaking spirals out like a Galaxy, and sets us free. Who knows where Humanity goes from there.

MERCURY is now (since this – Oct 17 – morning) also in SCORPIO, joining and passing JUPITER tomorrow (Wed) morning.
Big Time Taboo Talk, as we dive into ‘uncomfortable’, scary, repressed, covered up, and unfathomable topics and scenarios, remembered, experienced, or perhaps vividly pictured.

Of course, this is only the starting point, to process what’s been ‘under wraps’…

The ‘me too’ social media wave, triggered my Alyssa Milano just a few days ago, encouraged women and men: “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.” 

Hundreds of thousands of us responded. 

Which woman never has been sexually harassed or assaulted, verbally or physically???
Sadly and scandalously, it almost ‘comes with the territory’ of inhabiting a female body (speaking from personal experience).
Up until now.


A hidden issue of magnitude (JUPITER) indeed, that’s been talked about now big time.
May the Truth empower us, and bring Healing and Freedom!
JUPITER (only one week so far) in SCORPIO – Outgrowing what’s been hidden!


Me too isn’t completely new – 11 years ago (JUPITER was also in SCO then), Tarana Burke founded the me too Movement in 2006, to spread awareness and understanding about sexual assault in underprivileged communities of colour. 

May the Me too wave lead to ‘game over ‘ / zero tolerance for sexual harassment, assault, and even violence in Hollywood, and in a Society of true Adults!
I know I’m a ‘bit’ idealistic here but putting the blessing out regardless.
Big kudos, Alyssa Milano, for getting the ball rolling!
A.M. was born on Dec 19, 1972 – here is her chart.
Lilith and Saturn are now (Oct / Nov, only every 9 / 29 years) transiting her late SAG Sun – the Integrity Point. She even has PLUTO on her JUPITER / North Node in CAP nowadays /-years – being a catalyst for Eve-olution out of the dysfunctional and abusive patriarchal system.
And  with her MARS in late SCO, VENUS / NEPTUNE / MERCURY in early SAG – all on the ‘Phoenix Point’ on her 12th House cusp, she’s speaking out on behalf  of ‘whom it may concern’, and encourages the Collective to speak out and free up hidden stuff – we’re all in this together, it’s a societal phenomenon.
Her SATURN / MOON in GEMINI also got activated just in the last months – must voice and question on behalf of (mostly) women…

And that’s just the beginning of a major SCORPIO infusion:

We’re heading into a spooky (if you will), Astro Archetype line-up in SCO that’ll reach us deeply to evoke change from within, and has us process deep, otherwise covered themes:
  • The MOON will enter SCO (in her monthly cycle) on Oct 19 at 6:41 pm PDT – 6 hrs after the New Moon, and we might drop emotionally into intensely moving, cathartic processes.
  • The SUN will seasonably move into SCO on SUN-day Oct 22 at 10:27 pm PDT, for a month of bringing consciousness and new empowerment to what’s ready to transform. There’s a huge transformational boost round Oct 26, when the SUN meets mighty JUPITER in SCO! (Also the day of MOON / PLUTO – ruler of SCO).
  • VENUS will join SCO on Nov 7 (until Dec 1), ‘exiled’ from ‘her’ Taurean domain. We’re drawn to  look under the surface of things. Don’t get too absorbed in a ‘magical mystery black hole’, too many vampire movies, crime scenes, and personal power games (VENUS will go into conjunction with JUPITER on Nov 13, and into trine with NEPTUNE in PISCES on Nov 16).
  • Lastly, MARS will go into SCO on Dec 9, when all the other archetypal players except JUPITER will have left SCO.  MARS will connect with JUPITER on Jan 7, 2018 – the last connection of a planet with JUPITER in SCO (until Oct / Nov 2018). New year’s purge?


Stay tuned for the end-of-LIBRA New Moon (Oct 19) Astro~News! 



You’re invited to a private JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Session, during the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10 / 10 – 11 / 11, 2017), where we intentionally, and with the astrological map & compass, plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, go into, and focus on:
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

You can find out more about the Deep Dive Sessions at my FB Page Event.
If you’re new to my services I welcome you to get in touch before booking, if you have preliminary questions, and to get to know each other a bit before we ‘dive in’.

* Wesak Effects Days of Safeguarding and Distribution – From the Pure, Universe-All Heart

21 Apr

The Wesak Moon of the Buddha (Full Moon in SCO – TAU, exact today Apr 21 at 10:24 pm PDT) – full description: see yesterday’s blog post) offers a very potent time for receptivity, assimilation, and attunement to the cosmic energies, meditation and openness to transformational change.

Its effects extend over several months, some people say until the next Wesak Moon, a year later.



The spiritually auspicious Wesak Full Moon in its charged SCO – TAU energy has been building up well before, and is still available well after the exact alignment, as it requires and also helps us to ground ourselves, even in the apparent predicament and abyss of it all. So let’s be present with what IS, even with overpowering inner and ‘external’ demons, while sustaining a vision for humanity, together with others (the universal Sangha = spiritual community)!


In esoteric traditions the day of the Wesak Festival starts with the “Day of Safeguarding”, followed by two succeeding “Days of Distribution” (see http://www.souledout.org/wesak/wesakfestival16/wesakfminvite.html).


In short, on the Wesak Moon day (of Safeguarding), the spiritual community is called to regard themselves as recipients and custodians of as much of that inflowing spiritual force as they can possibly hold. This corresponds with the quality and capacity of fixed signs, and is a perfect expression for the SCO / TAU Full Moon, this year active from Thu Apr 21 at 5:17 pm PDT until Sun Apr 24 at 5:46 am PDT, peaking at the exact Full Moon, at 10:24 pm PDT on Thu Apr 21.


In the following Days of Distribution, it is suggested to turn the attention away from one’s inner subjective planes, in order to pass on the spiritual energy that has been received, ‘to whom it may concern’. This corresponds with the mutable, distributing and ‘broadcasting’ SAG MOON that follows the SCO MOON ‘container’, and will be active from Sun Apr 24 at 5:46 am PDT to Tue Apr 26 at 4:54 pm PDT.


Since the theme of the Days of Distribution is very apropos astrological mutable energy the multiple mutable T-Square can be used for a higher purpose:


4 R

Johfra Bosschart: Sagittarius


The post-Full SAG MOON will meet MARS retro on Sun / Mon Apr 24 / 25, connect with SATURN retro on Mon Apr 25, and will also square NEPTUNE in PI and JUPITER in VIR (plus the Nodal Axis) on Mon Apr 25, and CHIRON in PI on Tue Apr 26.

So rather than ‘shooting arrows of righteousness’ which doesn’t contribute (except to the problem perhaps) or distribute good energy even though it’s omnipresent these polarized times, where issues around ‘the right way / politics / direction’ are very charged and keep the concept of separation going:
How about committing (SATURN) to pulling the energy inwards (MARS retro) towards the Heart, and aiming from there?

  • What are you truly grateful in your Heart?
  • What does Love Say?
  • Surround yourself with Nature, be in the Green – and feel how Mother Nature stimulates your Green Heart Chakra!


How about a Chakra Attunement into the Heart – with the Mutable Planets?

Root yourself well (Saturn supports the Root Chakra and vice versa).

Feel fulfilled in your Jupiterian Sacral belly that nourishes your Solar Plexus life force.

Intentionally pull the Martian Solar Plexus Warrior energy up into the Venusian Heart Chakra. Neptune is the higher frequency – Universe-All Love~


In our Astrological Wesak Moon Circle this evening, let’s Chakra attune together, in our outdoor circle by the Stone Circles, before Moonrise!

Back in the studio, let’s connect with the astrological opportunities of distributing the Wesak energies – unique for each one of us, according to our charts!

And let us be guided by the magical SCORPIO MOON in the unfolding!
