NEPTUNE in PISCES retro (June 16 – Nov 22) – and MOON / NEPTUNE today: Connectivity without Co-Dependency

16 Jun

Have you recently felt overwhelmed by information and possibilities, yet going nowhere?
Where is this going? What’s the direction?
Have you been questioning everything?
Have you been in a maze, blues, blah mode, aimless, passive, confused, maybe even depressed, drifting, dreaming, feeling disillusioned, disappointed, feeling like checking out and escaping ‘reality’ lately,  and / or ‘hooked’ on something that has turned into an addiction?

Seems like you’re tuning into a low grade expression of NEP-TUNE’s turnaround mode, with a ‘dash’ of SATURN / LILITH in SAG. Which can easily happen these days.
Why?

 

NEPTUNE is a V.I.P.

Neptune

Neptunian ‘Portrait’ by NASA’s Hubble – Doesn’t it look like tie dyed? 🙂

= a Very Important Planet this month, since it’s on a turnaround course (twice a year) from Earth perspective, exact today, June 16, hence moving very slowly all of June, and becoming an energetic focal point.
NEPTUNE will be retro until Nov 22 (a yearly rhythm of 5 months retro / 7 months direct).

Good to be aware of the NEPTUNE Archetype, and able to recognize what’s up when we’re getting ‘hooked’, what alternative higher vibrational expressions may look like, and how to tune into those.

 

NEPTUNE has been also involved in the SAG – GEM Full Moon on June 9, and is presently activated by a square from LILITH in SAG (exact June 21) and a water trine from MARS in CANCER (exact on June 25):

Surfing the energy field that is naturally available, dancing with Life, surrendering to what-IS, moving with care and compassion, holding space in Oneness, riding energy waves with flow and ease, without resisting nor getting unhealthily entangled or enmeshed in co-dependency (shadow of PI), is the way to (Let) Go.

 

We are all in THIS together…

Earth YinYang

June 8 was World Oceans Day, raising awareness for the Beauty and vital Importance of the World Oceans.

Just as the Oceans and atmosphere connect us, we are now (well, always have been, but perhaps even more aware, since CHIRON and NEPTUNE have been in PI, 2010 and 2012) experiencing how everything connects with everything, in a limitless energetic continuum. The veils between dimensions, incl. Time and Space have become more and more permeable.

 Remember when people were talking about the theory of ‘six degrees of separation’ , but hey – since NEPTUNE moved into PISCES (2012 – 2026) the experience of separation through Time and Space has more and more morphed into interconnectedness anyway. Internet and media allow (or hook?) us to be continuously plugged in and connected (at least to and through technology – which is now omni-available, ever since NEPTUNE sailed through AQ from 1998 – 2012).

We’re swimming in, or rather: AS, a collective and universal field of energy – all connective and vibrational, atmospheric and boundary-less. 
Well, solid form is an illusion anyway.

Since the slow moving planets NEPTUNE (2012 – 2026) and CHIRON (2010 – 2018) are in PISCES, there’s a flood of influences and confluences, maybe overwhelming (NEPTUNE), and weakening / or we might feel vulnerable (CHIRON).
Our individual (which is of course an illusion) identity that experiences him / herself separate, yet has a need to feel connected.
Where to turn?
How to turn connectedness on?

Heart_Meditation

The last 1 1/2 years of the South Node in PISCES and the North Node in VIRGO (Fall 2015 – Spring 2017) showed us how important it is to discern what to immerse ourselves into, and how to find healthy (re)alignment in ourselves – the body is a temple – what do you allow to come in? What are healthy alignment practices and rituals to keep us in integrity, AND connected?

Yoga has become a big phenomenon, and a lot of people turned to a spectrum spiritual (PI) practices (VIR) – all showing the way (SAG) to / AS the ONE (PI).

 

So, what’s with codependency?

PISCEAN energy is about connection.
It’s a transpersonal, universal energy though. When ‘drawn into’ inter-personal realms, there can be a need to connect into a no-boundary / ‘endless’ state with someone that’s quite unhealthy, and doesn’t allow for breathing space or closure, often based on various early life experiences (often neglect, confusing bonding, or overwhelm / abuse) that the PISCEAN ‘person’ unconsciously tries to compensate for, to ‘get the loving connection’, yet s/he might re-attract similar situations as s/he looks for love at the wrong places with the same vibration.

A while ago, I saw a video based on the experiences and teachings of Gabor Mate that showed how addiction is a misdirected need for connection (both so Piscean!).
In German, the words for seeking (Suche) and addiction (Sucht) have the same root.
“Still haven’t found what I’m looking for…”.

Our Piscean Age that humanity is just about to outgrow has compounded such patterns and tendencies with, simplistically put, the classic co-dependent triad of victim – perpetrator – martyr / saviour.
Always good to check in and be self-aware (VIRGO) which role/s (maybe two at once) we might play in a difficult situation – and release it.

 

YinYang Infinite

The essence of timeless Tao Wisdom: Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamic and interwoven.

Pisces and the Paradox

With PISCES, the approach is paradoxical (“Let go, relax, and it comes to you, you can’t ‘get’ it… (LOVE?) what you already have or rather: are….”), and transpersonal (“Don’t take it personally!” Is that possible?)

I’m sure there’ll be more downloads and releases from NEPTUNE now freshly retrograde in PISCES…
May the Universe-All Love show us: All is connected. May we relax into this, breathe out and let go, and let the inbreath come naturally…

 

Beware the Agenda, and be FREE!

SATURN and now also LILITH (Feb 13 – Nov 8) in SAG are also regulative Archetypes, showing us that it’s liberating when we don’t get drawn into all the allure and agenda, and stay focused and Heart connected.
A walk outdoors (SAG), literally by the Water, can be wondrous (PI) in itself. And ‘real’ connectedness doesn’t depend on the umbilical cord of the media, nor on substances that take us temporarily into boundless states.

LILITH now (exact June 21) square NEPTUNE creates a dynamic tension between openness, surrender, oneness (NEPTUNE) and being true to ourselves (LILITH), and also what reconciles them: Being in our True Nature and Heart-Field IS connective!

NEPTUNE is a transpersonal planet – actually the ‘higher octave’ of VENUS. In other words, we are personally attracted to and connected with one another via VENUS, while NEPTUNE is about… being connected.

Pied_Piper by Kate Greenaway

Pied Piper by Kate Greenaway

It can be super simple to live in that fluid awareness – as long as we don’t go into the illusion of separateness which the mind, the ego, and other gremlins constantly try to lure us into… – and then some external authorities (SATURN) give us a ‘way out’, a ‘solution’…
Yet we don’t need to follow the inner / outer Pied Pipers showing up in many shapes and forms… incl. the flute of omnipresent media.

  • Does it take extra stimuli (maybe increased dosage) to lose yourself in something ‘bigger’, and drop your sense of separate identity?
  • Can you BE immediately, already in the space that having / doing what such and such…. promises to take you to?
  • Do you already have (access to) the resources / solutions – are they within??? – when someone ‘out there’ lures you to take you to ‘The Promise Land’ 🙂 

 

What a miraculous mirage!

… that NEPTUNE in its own domain PISCES (2012 – 2026) shows us:
All is fluid, ever changing, yet everything is always here.
There is nothing constant about life, about you, yet something permeates existence. Big paradoxes. Wherever you go, there you are.
Yet where is the Self to be found (let’s contemplate THIS)?

Humanity and all life forms are interconnected. We see that now inevitably on all levels, ecologically, climate wise, via the media, politically, economically, culturally.

Maha Shivaratri 2017 – Releasing, Surrendering, and Jumping through the Ring of Fire!

23 Feb

Maha Shivaratri is the big yearly festival dedicated Lord Shiva, most revered deity in Hinduism, and ‘patron’ of Yoga, meditation, Union with the Formless.

 

shivaratri

Lord Shiva

 

Shivaratri is celebrated in remembrance of “overcoming darkness and ignorance” in life and the world.
In Piscean mode, let’s connect to festivals of yearly Astrology related cycles – if we feel an inner resonance, and receive a benefit! ❤
This year, Feb 24 / 25 is the sacred night (ratri) dedicated to Shiva . It is believed that in this ‘moonless night’ – the night before the New Moon, Lord Shiva performed the dance of destruction and re-creation.

If you are inspired to tune into Shiva energy, esp. as a practicing Yogi/ni you might also be interested in watching the documentary “Naked in Ashes”.

Shiva Nataraja – the Dancing Shiva

 

And since we are now also in the phase of the Dark Moon – the ‘Crone Moon’ (last days before the New Moon on Feb 26, as the sliver has disappeared in the heavens) it’s time to go inwards, release and surrender to the forces and gifts of life, out of which the natural course of action may arise, with the NEW MOON.

Even more so, since the PISCES NEW MOON will be a ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse with MERCURY and NEPTUNE – releasing fabrications of the mind, and surrendering into the big mystery!
Jumping through the ‘Ring of Fire’!
So much ARIES energy follows – radical renewal!
The newly waxing ‘Shiva’ Sliver MOON will enter fiery ARIES on MoOnday Feb 27 (at 8:52 pm PST, meeting with VENUS, MARS, and URANUS. Time for emergence and energetic new beginnings, after the Piscean ultimate surrender. A breath of Spring, and great time for vibrant new energy to come forth.

* The SUN crosses the Kuan Yin Point, and enters PISCES, on Feb 18: Coherence and Compassion.

18 Feb

This is the time of year when Aquarian Air turns into PISCEAN Water.
This morning, Feb 18 at 3:31 am PST, the SUN entered PISCES.

It’s the time-of-season in the Northern hemisphere when frosty Aquarian ice crystals and snow melt, and the Winter gets ‘washed out’….. More rain? Maybe… (not everywhere on Planet Earth of course).

Definitely a time to connect in Humanity (AQ) and know that we’re all in this together (hence I call it ‘Coherence Point’). In a group it’s the vibe of tuning into the shared ‘field’.

The 2015 Chinese New Year on that point inspired me to call this cusp also ‘Kuan Yin Point’, since she is the Goddess of Love and Compassion for all of Humanity. A good time to invoke her (any time of course).

The SUN will be in PISCES until March 20, and connect there with NEPTUNE on March 1, with CHIRON on March 14, plus the PI New Moon on Feb 26 will be an Annular ‘Ring of Fire’ SOLAR ECLIPSE (path goes over South America / South-West Africa)!
A huge planetary field in PISCES then, with MERCURY (entering PI on Feb 25), South Node, SUN, MOON, NEPTUNE, and CHIRON!  Stay tuned for an Astro~News blog post!

PISCES, the last Water sign, last Winter sign, and last sign of the Zodiac supports ‘endings’, surrendering, letting go, and being ‘neutral’. What may come our way when we’re in that vibration we can easily meet with LOVE, and whatever is not a good match can be released with LOVE, with ease and flow.

A new cycle follows, from the Spring Equinox (March 20) on.

The ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar ECLIPSE in early PISCES on Feb 26 helps us with ‘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.

Have you been feeling its effects (usually in the month before, if not longer), and welcoming the ‘karmic gifts’ it offers?
* Clearing residual ‘chaos’ / overwhelm (South Node / NEPTUNE in PI)
* Re-aligning with integrity (VIR), to radiate our authentic Self (LEO).

* PISCEAN Immersion (Lunar South Node, VENUS, NEPTUNE, MARS, CHIRON) in January: Connectivity without Co-Dependency

15 Jan

You can see it in the Full Moon chart (blog post from Jan 11), and I bet you sense it nowadays: We’re swimming in – or rather: AS a collective and universal field of energy – all connective and vibrational, atmospheric and boundary-less. 
Well, solid form is an illusion anyway.

 

dsc03476

Oceanic Evening Glow – Photo by Melanie, January 2017

 

The slow moving planets NEPTUNE (2012 – 2026) and CHIRON (2010 – 2018) are in PISCES now, the Lunar South Node too (Oct 2015 – late Apr 2017 – it always goes retro, and will move into AQ thereafter), while the Lunar North Node (always opposite the SN) is in VIRGO, and met by the VIRGO MOON today and tomorrow – a good and healthy counter balance for so much PISCES. Also VENUS (Jan 3 – Feb 3) and MARS (Dec 19 – Jan 27) are presently in PISCES.
VENUS has just connected with NEPTUNE on the Full Moon day Jan 12, and tomorrow Jan 16, MARS meets and passes CHIRON, which can stir up wounds and vulnerability through co-dependency, but also activates healing via inter-dependency. With CHIRON and PISCES, the timeless mantra: Heal Like with Like (of a high vibration) is the key for release, let-go, and connect in the All-Love.

There’s a flood of influences and confluences, maybe overwhelming (NEPTUNE), and weakening / or we might feel vulnerable (CHIRON) in our individual (which is of course an illusion) identity that experiences him/herself separate, and yet has a need to feel connected.
What ‘to do with this mess’? asks VIRGO.

From the North Node’s perspective certainly a healthy practical approach would be for example to boost our immune system, rather than expose ourselves to unhealthy substances of all sorts (be it in the environment, addictive substance abuse, media overwhelm and delusion….).
And a good idea is also to release toxic energy on all levels, esp. as we approach the PISCES NEW MOON / South Node Solar Eclipse, on Feb 26 (with soo much PI energy).

Release energetically – re-connect with universe-ALL energy – let LOVE do its thing…

 

So, what’s with codependency?

PISCEAN energy is about connection. It’s a transpersonal, universal energy though. When ‘drawn into’ personal realms, there can be a need to connect into a no-bourndary, ‘endless’ way that’s quite unhealthy and doesn’t allow for breathing space or closure, often based on various early life experiences (often neglect, confusing bonding, or overwhelm / abuse) that the PISCEAN ‘person’ unconsciously tries to compensate for, to ‘get the loving connection’, yet s/he might re-attract similar situations as s/he looks for love at the wrong places with the same vibration.

Our Piscean Age that humanity is just about to outgrow has compounded such patterns and tendencies with, simplistically put, the classic co-dependent triad of victim – perpetrator – martyr / saviour.

With PISCES, the approach is paradoxical (“Let go, relax, and it comes to you, you can’t ‘get’… (LOVE?) what you already have or rather: are….”), and transpersonal (“Don’t take it personally!” Is that possible?)

A while ago, I saw a video based on the experiences and teachings of Gabor Mate that showed how addiction is a misdirected need for connection (both so Piscean!). “Still haven’t found what I’m looking for…”. In German, the words for seeking (Suche) and addiction (Sucht) have the same root.

I’m sure there’ll be more downloads and releases for the PISCES Solar Eclipse New Moon, end of Feb.
May the Universe-All Love (VENUS / NEPTUNE in PI this week) show us: All is connected. May we relax into this, breathe out and let go, and let the inbreath come naturally…

* CAN – CAP Full Moon / Cardinal Grand Cross Jan 12 Meeting Deep Needs. Making Powerful Choices. Birthing the Change.

11 Jan

2017’s first Full Moon (see chart below), in CANCER, and with soo much energy in the Water element comes with a BANG – the Cardinal Grand Cross super charge –, in a powerful Earth-Motherly way, like Water breaking, initiating the Birthing of new consciousness, a new way of Being on and relating to Planet Earth!

 

anima-mundi-forrest

Anima Mundi – A Pagan Manger Painting by my friend Forrest Boden  http://www.plantingyogistudios.com/

 

All our Ancestors and Elders (biological, Ancestors of the Land, Spirit Ancestors and Elders), the ancient, timeless, perhaps shamanic (if we relate) Spirit of humans, animals or in other life forms, perhaps even ‘our’ embodiments in other time lines (SUN / PLUTO in CAP) are with us, and hold space, in this deep structural transformation, and evolutionary change of consciousness.

No, we can’t and don’t have to ‘move mountains’. But we are supported in transforming and ‘re-purposing’ what we’ve been identified with, and what we’ve carried so long: Old conditioning, useful perhaps for a previous purpose, but now outlived, burdensome, and redundant (PLUTO in CAP).

Did you feel a shift of energy last weekend, when the SUN in CAP passed PLUTO? Happens once a year. In the FM chart you can see the SUN still very close to PLUTO (and you can picture PLUTO in the sky in the direction close to where you the SUN these days).

 

Do you notice the immense freeing up of energy, maybe spontaneously or otherwise through paradigm shifts and breakthroughs (URANUS in AR turned direct on Dec 29) in the new year? Even in a way that creates new balance (like of your inner Masculine and Feminine, or literally in relationships) and spacious, life enhancing relatedness (JUPITER in LIBRA)?

How about asking a question like the following when sooo many choices are presented (JUPITER in LIBRA – so in the atmosphere these days, for many clients myself included):

  • What’s the most powerful, sustainable (PLUTO in CAP), life enhancing choice (LIBRA) from the core of me, as it allows for transformation (PLUTO) and breakthrough (URANUS), while knowing I’m cared for, and deeply sustained (CAN – CAP) by Life itself?

 

Can you trust the journey, or do old patterns, stories and beliefs, stand in the way (SATURN in SAG) and show you the blocks can be seen (SAG) now that call to be released (squared by MARS / CHIRON, later this month VENUS / CHIRON) and ‘washed away’, perhaps through a forgiveness process, maybe purely energetically – we don’t need to ‘know’ and ‘understand’ (SAG) what exactly it is, letting go and being connected is what matters most, so that things stay fluid – as Life IS, and a whole new energy and consciousness (URANUS in ARIES) can be birthed.

 

 

* The CAN – CAP Full Moon Chart

The CAN – CAP Full Moon is exactly tomorrow Jan 12 at 3:34 am PST / 6:34 am EST:

Yeah, here’s the picture of the Grand Cross in cardinal signs:

 

can-cap-fm-card-grand-cross-2017

The Full MOON at 22° 27’ CAN – opposite the SUN which has just passed PLUTO on Jan 7. The Full Moon Axis is in EXACT square with, and activates the (longer lasting) opposition of JUPITER stationary in LIBRA opposite URANUS in ARIES (their opposition was exact on Dec 26, and again on March 3, and Sept 27).

A Grand Cross can create tremendous tension and pressure from all sides IF we experience them as conflicting with one another…

Like this: CAP which is about building what lasts, completing, and ARIES which is about fresh starts, and is adventurous and raw which might be threatening to CANCER which needs safety. The CANCERian cyclical fluctuation can be irritating to the need for balance and equilibrium in LIBRA. And LIBRAN relatedness can annoy CAP which doesn’t have time to waste on wondering what others think or say, and wants to get on with things.

 

If you have planets / AC / Sun / Moon in 2 or more cardinal signs in aspect you probably resonate. And this goes also – generally speaking – for interpersonal dynamics between people with ‘conflicting’ cardinal signs emphasized. But hey, they often attract each other in relationships to work things out…

 

So, what’s the solution with a Cardinal Cross like this?

Rather than being pulled into 4 directions in a stressful way, or attempting to ‘square the circle’ and reconcile all these apparently conflicting sides – a challenge that you probably experienced over the last while building up to the Full Moon – the ‘way out’ is the ‘way IN’, in other words:
The best way is to go deep inside, and center ourselves (like in the meeting point of the axes / our inner ‘axis mundi’, and take centred action from there,  physically from our navel / power centre – the Solar Plexus.

 

Where the Full Moon and planets in the Cardinal Cross fall in your chart (on your Planets, AC / Sun / Moon, into your houses) that’s where you can experience conflict and dilemma that calls for centred action which can be very empowering (SUN / PLUTO) and liberating (URANUS).

As you see in the chart, there’s also a LOT of energy in PISCES (South Node of the Moon, VENUS / NEPTUNE – conjunct tomorrow!, MARS / CHIRON – conjunct on Jan 16), in square with SATURN in SAG which brings back reflections of the SATURN – NEPTUNE square in 2015 / 16, with collective, societal and personal themes of

With SATURN in SAG squaring CHIRON  in PI now (first exact alignment was on Dec 28, again on Apr 30 and Nov 2): Can we trust, let go and let God? / allow things to fall off and come together in a natural way?

This month of January, with MARS, and then VENUS activating CHIRON in PI and squaring SATURN in SAG it is an initiation in the ‘flow’, surfing energy waves, and realizing that the vibration we’re in attracts (VENUS / NEPTUNE in PI), even if we don’t like what we see (SATURN in SAG).
See what  happens when you exude a different vibe! And check out what you’re attracted too / what you surround yourself with like water, and what that says about the state you’re in. It’s sort of a chicken and egg question 🙂
The point in this mutable square is to allow the energy to move, and maybe literally walk in the outdoors, by the water, dance, do Yoga, stay in the flow.

~~~ VENUS just entered PISCES last night / this morning (until Feb 3, and back in April – you guessed it: ‘she’ will go retro this Spring!) , for her journey in the most sublime energy showing us our connectivity, no matter what our relationship to one another is… humans, animals, minerals, all our relations in the energy fabric of what IS ~~~
 
 
~~~ The MOON is still for another day in PISCES (did you see the beautiful MOON over VENUS blessing in the evening sky?) – evoking feelings of compassion (don’t get overwhelmed though, and breath out love to the ALL) ~~~
 
 
Lunar South Node

Lunar South Node Glyph

 
~~~ The South NODE of the MOON is also in PI (until end of April) – letting go isn’t the same as giving up and drowning, numbing, wanting to disappear or escape. Back to the breath, and to releasing what pulls us into victimhood, low empath vibrations, com-passion as in: suffering together with the other person. Good medicine to release and let go – with LOVE (see my post from Dec 31) ~~~
 
 
~~~ MARS is also in PI these weeks (until Jan 27), for an extra sense of adventure in the surrender (adventure IS surrender, isn’t it?) ~~~

A ‘retro’ piece that an old friend gave me years ago ‘fell into my hands’ today – very Mercury retro in CAP, and so apropos all the PISCEAN energies:

TO “LET GO” TAKES LOVE
(The author is unknown to me)

To “let” go” does not mean to stop caring. It means I can’t do it for someone else.

To “let go” is not to cut myself off. It is the realization I cannot control another.

To “let go” is not to enable but to allow learning from natural consequences.

To “let go” is to admit powerlessness which means the outcome is not in my hands.

To “let go” is not to try to change or blame another. It is to make the most of myself.

To “let go” is not to care for but to care about.

To “let go” is not to judge but to allow another to be a human being.

To “let go” is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes but to allow others to affect their own destinies.

To “let go” is not to be protective. It is to permit another to face reality.

To “let go” is not to deny but to accept.

To “let go” is not to nag, scold, or argue, but, instead, to search out my own shortcomings and to correct them.

To “Let go” is not to adjust everything to my desires but to take each day as it comes, and to cherish myself in it.

To “let go” is not to criticize and regulate anybody but to become what I dream I can be.

To “let go” is not to regret the past, but to grow in the moment and live for the future.

To “Let go” is to fear less and love more.

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

18 Aug
Golden Light Wave

Golden Light Wave – Photo by Melanie

 

YES, indeed:

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

  • LEO Drama & Dominance
  • AQ Isolation and Alienation

And Freedom FOR – perhaps:

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

Lots of VIR energies are on presently, with

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 AQ - LEO FM 2016

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

How about this:

Working in the Flow

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

 

On that note of puns:

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

 

And then:

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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